Progress customers will see their monthly electric bills go up in 2013, though they also will receive $288 million in refunds related to a repair project at the Crystal River nuclear plant. The agreement also will lock in the amount that customers will pay over five years for a proposed nuclear plant in Levy County. Supporters say those costs could have gone up far more if the settlement had not been reached. This may not be the best deal for all, but each party gets a little something, Commissioner Eduardo Balbis said before the PSC voted unanimously to approve the agreement. Progress and representatives of consumers, business groups and federal-government agencies announced the settlement last month after lengthy negotiations. The announcement came as the St. Petersburg-based utility and the other groups prepared for a year of major and controversial regulatory issues. Bottom line, residential customers who use 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a month would see their bills go from the current $123.19 to an estimated $128.12 next year, according to information presented by the PSC staff. The utility industry uses 1,000 kilowatt hours as a common measurement, though many residential customers use more electricity than that each month and PSC approves Progress Energy agreement See RATES/ Page A2 Monthly bills will increase next year DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleState Road 44 resurfacing is rolling right along. The 11 miles of roadway has received its first layer of asphalt and the project is only six weeks under way. The construction project was planned for overnight hours but instead is also being done during the day. MIKEWRIGHT Staff WriterLECANTO Workers on the State Road 44 resurfacing project have hit the ground running. The project is barely six weeks old and already the first layer of resurfacing has replaced broken concrete on miles of roadway lanes. D.A.B. Constructors Inc. of Inglis has the $9.5 million contract to resurface 11 miles of S.R. 44 between Stokes Flea Market near Lecanto and County Road 581 in Inverness. Its the first major roadwork on S.R. 44 since Citrus Countys major east-west thoroughfare was widened to four lanes 15 years ago. State transportation officials said they hoped most of the work could be done at night so that lane closures would not have a significant impact on traffic. Conrad Campbell, Department of Transpor tation District 7 construction report manager, said the D.A.B. contract bars work between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. within 600 feet of a signalized intersection. At first D.A.B. was doing the work at night, grinding and repaving two-mile stretches of roadway one lane at a time. When colder weather moved in two weeks ago, the company moved to daytime work. District 7 spokeswoman Kris Carson said workers need temperatures at 45 degrees or higher for the asphalt to settle properly. The contractor is choosing to do some day work because the temperatures have been so cold at night, Carson said in an email. The project is scheduled to conclude in July 2013. Along with resurfacing the roadway, the project includes:Constructing new sidewalks on both sides of S.R. 44 between North Lopp Point, the projects western boundary, and Tighe Drive near the Lowes store in Inverness.Repairing other sidewalks along the roadway where necessary.Widening right-turn lanes throughout the project area.Replacing poles and signals at the West Homosassa Trail intersection with hurricaneresistant poles and signals.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicle online.com Some work by day, some work by night as S.R. 44 resurfacing project progresses A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS A young mans fateful decision to break the terms of his probation has drawn him a 30year sentence. Circuit Judge Ric Howard sentenced 25-yearold Robert John Michael Egan Wednesday for absconding from a probationary jurisdictional area in Texas to his home state of Maine. Egan and two others were arrested in February of 2008 in Homosassa for robbery with a deadly weapon and other charges. Egan pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced to two years in prison and three years probation in November of 2008. His probation included community service and the ability to move to his home state and county with the provision that he registered with a probation officer at these locations. Egan left Florida and moved back to Maine, but soon left Maine for Texas to be with his wife, who was in the military. He reportedly met a probation officer on two occasions in Texas and all the rules of his probation were explained to him. However, after a fight with his wife, Egan abruptly left Texas and returned to Maine without going through the proper Judge doles out 30-year sentence for probation violation See PRISON/ Page A2 Robert Egangets 30-year sentence. Romney, Santorum trade barbs Associated PressMESA, Ariz. Primed for a fight, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum traded fiery accusations about health care, spending earmarks and federal bailouts Wednesday night in the 20th and possibly final debate of the roller-coaster race for the Republican presidential nomination. With pivotal primaries in Arizona and Michigan just six days distant, Romney and Santorum sparred more aggressively than in past debates, sometimes talking over each others answers. Texas Rep. Ron Paul chimed in from the side, saying with a smile that Santorum was a fake conservative who had voted for programs that he now says he wants to repeal. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich acted almost as a referee at times. The most animated clash of the evening focused on health care. Santorum, surging in the presidential race, said that Romney had used government funds to fund a federal takeover of health care in Massachusetts, a reference to the state law that was enacted during Romneys term as governor.

See DEBATE/ Page A2 Gunman kills two in Ga. spa shootingNORCROSS, Ga. A gunman walked into the Su Jung Health Sauna, argued with someone and then opened fire, killing two sisters and their husbands, then himself, authorities said Wednesday And the carnage could have been worse about 20 people were inside the bath house when the shooting started near the front of the building. Four people were found dead inside, and another was taken to a hospital before being pronounced dead, police said. Surveillance video from the nearby Norcross shopping center showed the man who Norcross police Capt. Brian Harr said had been asked earlier to leave the spa because he was being disruptive. Police were not called. A few hours later, around 8:30 p.m., the man returned shooting, Harr said. Investigators believe the person who asked the gunman to leave was among the dead, Harr said. Investigators recovered a .45-caliber gun used in the shooting. Su Jung is one of several day spas about 15 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta, where there is a large Korean population.

requirement for individuals to purchase coverage that is similar to the one in President Barack Obamas landmark federal law that Romney and other Republicans have vowed to repeal. In rebuttal, Romney said Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, bore responsibility for passage of the health care law that Obama won from a Democratic-controlled Congress in 2010, even though he wasnt in office at the time. He said that in a primary battle in 2004, Santorum had supported then-Sen. Arlen Specter, who later switched parties and voted for the law Obama wanted. He voted for Obamacare. If you had not supported him, if we had said no to Arlen Specter, we would not have Obamacare, Romney contended. Santorum was the aggressor on bailouts. While all four of the Republicans on the debate stage opposed the federal bailout of the auto industry in 2008 and 2009, Santorum said he had voted against other government-funded rescue efforts. With respect to Governor Romney that was not the case; he supported the folks on Wall Street and bailed out Wall Street was all for it and when it came to the auto workers and the folks in Detroit, he said no. That to me is not a principled consistent position. The debate had a different look from the 19 that preceded it. Instead of standing behind lecterns, the four presidential rivals sat in chairs lined up side by side. There was another difference, as well, in the form of polls that underscored the gains that Obama has made in his bid for re-election. An Associated Press-Gfk poll released Wednesday found that Obama would defeat any of the four remaining Republican contenders in a hypothetical matchup. It also found that the nation is showing more optimism about the state of the economy, the dominant issue in the race. But for two hours, Romney, Santorum, Paul and Gingrich had a different campaign in mind, their own race for the Republican nomination and the right to oppose Obama in the fall. After a brief lull, the campaign calendar calls for 13 primaries and caucuses between next Tuesday, when Arizona and Michigan have primaries, and March 6, a 10-state Super Tuesday. Romney is campaigning confidently in Arizona, so much so that his campaign has not aired any television ads. But the former Massachusetts governor faces an unexpectedly strong challenge in his home state of Michigan, where Santorum is hoping to spring an upset. Santorums candidacy has rebounded in the two weeks since he won caucuses in Minnesota, Colorado and a non-binding primary in Missouri. The result is a multimillion-dollar barrage of television commercials in Michigan in which the candidates and their allies swap accusations in hopes of tipping the race. In all, 518 Republican National Convention delegates are at stake between Feb. 28 and March 6, three times the number awarded in the states that have voted since the beginning of the year. It takes 1,144 to win the nomination. The dynamic of the campaign Santorum challenging Romney made their clashes inevitable. Romney said Santorum voted five times while in Congress to raise the governments ability to borrow, supported retention of a law that favors construction unions and supported increased spending for Planned Parenthood. He said federal spending rose 78 percent overall while the former Pennsylvania senator was in Congress. Santorum retorted that government spending declined as a percentage of the economy when he was in the Senate, and he noted that when Romney was asked last year if he would support a then-pending debt-limit increase, he said yes.A2THURSDAY, FEBRUARY23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE INSIDE Crystal River Mall 7 95-148 4 Inside Walmart Hwy. 200, Ocala 291-1467 000AF9R FREE HEARING TEST Coupon Expires 3/15/12 (Limit 2 per visit) BATTERY SALE .89 IN OFFICE ONLY ANY MAKE ANY MODEL Coupon Expires 3/15/12 FREE HEARING AID REPAIRS 000AM13 000ANQ8 000ALPE 5705 W.

Progress planned early this year to file a proposed increase in base electric rates, which cover many of the day-to-day expenses of running the utility. Such base-rate cases take months, require expert testimony and often delve into issues ranging from company profits to staffing levels. The settlement will allow Progress to raise base electric rates by $150 million but will short-circuit the need for a rate case. More controversial, however, is part of the settlement that will allow Progress to collect $350 million from customers over a five-year period for a plan to build two nuclear reactors in Levy County. That would translate into $3.45 a month for residential customers who use 1,000 kilowatt hours a month. A 2006 state law allows Progress to pass along nuclear-related costs to customers, though the Levy County reactors will not start operating for at least another decade, if ever. During a hearing Monday, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy criticized the continuing nuclear costs, questioning whether the project will end up being built. Progress, however, had been expected to propose passing along a larger tab to customers for the Levy project during the next few years. The settlement likely will delay construction of the multibillion-dollar reactors, though Balbis said he was concerned delays could hurt the viability of the project. The other highestprofile issue in the settlement stems from a repair project at a Crystal River nuclear plant that critics accuse Progress of bungling. The issue involves a chain of events that started in 2009 when the plant was damaged during the replacement of a steam generator. Last year, more damage was found as the plant was being prepared to operate again. That has led to questions about how or if the plant should be repaired and how the project will be financed. The settlement, in part, calls for Progress to refund $288 million in replacement power costs, which relate to Progress need to buy or generate electricity elsewhere to make up for lost production at the idled plant. But the utility also will get benefits from the Crystal River portion of the settlement. As an example, if Progress starts repairs by Dec. 31, attorneys for consumers and business groups could not challenge the decision to repair the plant and the construction method. Suzanne Grant, a Progress spokeswoman, said the agreement will lead to the utility collaborating with the state Office of Public Counsel, which represents consumers, as decisions are made about the Crystal River project. RATESContinued from Page A1 channels to maintain his probationary status. He was later arrested and returned to Florida. Howard said Egan also violated terms of his community service agreement. Before he was sentenced, Egan and his attorney, Assistant Public Defender Luke Waatti tried to make a case for leniency. Waatti said what Egan did was not a woeful violation of the rules of probation. He said Egan had a fight with the wife and removed himself from the situation by moving away. Egan also said he worked on his GED while he was in prison and had always worked since his arrest. But prosecutor Paul Norville asked for at least the minimum according to sentencing guidelines, which is 13 years. He said Egan flouted probation rules and absconded to Maine. Howard said the crime which involved a firearm can fetch up to life in prison and scolded Egan for blowing his chances by violating the terms of his initial sentence, which he thought was extremely lenient. Howard said he didnt know how its done in Texas crimes involving the use of a firearm but here in Florida we are damn serious about them. Egans 30-year sentence gives credit for time served. Egan and his co-defendants were arrested in connection with an armed robbery reported on Feb. 7, 2008, at the Kwik Save Food store on W. Miss Maggie Drive in Chassahowitzka. Store owner Vijaya Yakkanti, then 38, and store clerk Randy Kelley, then 45, had just closed the store when they were attacked by the suspects (one of them armed with a handgun) dressed all in black, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office arrest report. The thieves appeared to have been waiting outside the store to rob them, according to the report. Both victims were battered and later were transported to Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center for treatment of their wounds. Egan and his friends reportedly stole several thousand dollars, a wallet and a cell phone from the two men. PRISONContinued from Page A1 DEBATEContinued from Page A1

TallahasseeSuperintendents pan school grade changesSchool superintendents said proposed changes to Floridas school grading system would be unfair and cause needless failures. The Florida Association of District School Superintendents outlined its objections Tuesday in a letter to Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson. Among the examples they cited is a proposal to automatically fail a school based on a low reading proficiency score even though it may otherwise have an overall passing grade.Rip currents expected on Atlantic coastEmergency management officials said theres a high risk of rip currents along some of Floridas Atlantic coast beaches. They urged beachgoers to use caution if they visit beaches from Volusia to Palm Beach counties. Deputy State Meteorologist Michelle Palmer said ocean swells, local conditions and tidal effects are causing rip currents along the Space, Treasure and Gold coast beaches.

Levy Commission passes on Inglis meeting LOUELLIOTTJONES Special to the ChronicleINGLIS The Levy County Commission is saying thanks but no thanks to an invitation to attend a public meeting in Inglis to discuss an upcoming vote on dissolving the citys police department. The vote on the proposed amendment to the city charter is March 13. To that end, city officials invited the county commission, Property Appraiser Oz Barke and Sheriff Johnny Smith to attend the public meeting at 6 p.m. March 6 at the town hall. The purpose of the meeting will be to allow the residents of Inglis to receive information to make their voting decision on the dissolving of the Inglis Police Department, Town Clerk Sally McCranie wrote in the invitation. Commissioners declined the invitation. I dont see where the Board of County Commissioners has anything to do with a local issue, said County Coordinator Freddie Moody. Commission Chair Danny Stevens, D-Williston, agreed. Stevens represents District 5. We dont need to be there, he replied. The sheriff has been there and told them what he will do. District 3 Commissioner Marsha Drew (RYankeetown) said, Its up to the sheriff to tell them what he will do. Moody said the town has to negotiate coverage with the sheriff if the residents vote to dissolve the police department. Sheriff Johnny Smith did not attend Tuesdays County Commission meeting when the matter was discussed due to a family medical situation. But Maj. Evan Sullivan said the sheriff had previously indicated he would attend. The town is voting on the amendment after a little over 10 percent of the residents signed petitions calling for dissolving the police department and merging it with the sheriffs office. The amendments wording was challenged in court and 8th Judicial Circuit Judge Robert Roundtree Jr. reworded it to only call for the departments dissolution and said the vote could go ahead on March 13, which is also the date for city elections.Lou Elliott Jones is the editor of the Chiefland Citizen. Official says March 13 vote on dissolving police department is a city, not county issue Magic number nears DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleChris and Carol Winterbottom work on cooking dinner in their Pine Ridge home. They are following a Weight Watchers diet to reach their goal of 299 pounds. This day Chris is cooking steak fajitas, which is nine points a piece as opposed to 15 points for an ordinary fajita. Editors note: Throughout 2012, the Chronicle is following local residents who have made commitments to improve their health, including losing weight, periodically running follow-up stories on their progress. Pine Ridge residents Chris and Carol Winterbottom, each beginning with weights more than 300 pounds, have additional challenges with diabetes, sleep apnea, back, hip and knee problems. Chris beginning weight: 335. Carol: 311. Theyve chosen to follow the Weight Watchers program. This story is the second in the Winterbottoms saga. NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS Chris and Carol Winterbottom began 2012 with a goal to lose weight. However, first they had a 10-day cruise to go on and survive the nonstop eating extravaganzas cruises are notorious for. The food wasnt that good this time, Carol said. Even so, she came back 8 pounds heavier and Chris 4 pounds up. But they also came back determined to get started on their weight loss mission. For the first week we were back, waiting for the next Monday to sign up for Weight Watchers, we ate like we were on it already, Carol said. She had been on the program before, losing as much as 50 pounds until a back injury landed her in bed for months at a time and she gained it back. Although the program has changed since she was last following it, she knew enough to know the basics. By the first meeting I lost 11 pounds! Carol said. Her husband had been losing weight even before their joint New Years resolution. As of last week, two full weeks into the program, hes at 315. Carols at 305. They havent set a goal weight yet. Right now their eyes are on the magic number: 299. They want to get below 300. Carol thinks Chris will get there before she does, even though he has more pounds to lose. Already he has dropped one pants size, from 54 to 52. Its a man thing, Chris said. Its unfair because men can sneeze and lose weight, and its much harder for women. He said the advantage women have is that they actually like salads. He tolerates them, although theyre growing on him. Eating out is also a challenge. Their first week on Weight Watchers Carol went out to eat three days in a row. Its hard when they bring the Italian bread to the table and you stare at it until you tell them to take it away, she said. So far with their limitations they havent found an exercise they can do, although they checked out a local water exercise schedule. Its three times a week, and were going to try to go, Carol said. Right now Im feeling better cortisone shots. Im getting frustrated, Chris said. Because of nerve damage I cant walk on uneven ground; I cant walk downhill. Still, theyre both determined to succeed. Chris is the cook and hes finding ways to lower the calories and fat in his favorite recipes. They both agree that being accountable to thousands of Chroniclereaders is just the motivation they need. Ive done this before, Carol said, but something always happens. Last year it was my back. I hope this time to do it. I really want to lose this weight Im tired of it.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com Husband, wife strive to weigh in at 299 pounds as first goal Healthy Resolutions Judge mulls governors worker drug testing order Associated PressMIAMI Lawyers for a government workers union and the American Civil Liberties Union on Wednesday urged a federal judge to declare as unconstitutional Gov. Rick Scotts order that state employees undergo random drug testing. At a hearing, the attorneys told U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro that a blanket policy covering some 85,000 workers in 18 executive branch agencies violates the Fourth Amendment by subjecting them to an unreasonable search without adequate suspicion that they used drugs. The policy instead should focus on workers in safetyrelated and law enforcement jobs, they said. This is contrary to decades of case law, said Shalini Argawal of the ACLUs Florida chapter. The governor has articulated no special need to test all employees. Attorneys for Scott, who issued the order last year, countered that there is adequate statistical evidence in years of national studies about workplace drug use and its dangers to justify the order. Drugs are very harmful, said Jesse Panuccio, the governors deputy general counsel. They create danger, not just if you drive a train. Ungaro, however, seemed skeptical of the Republican governors position. She quoted three key court rulings that say grounds for random employee drug tests should include such factors as a surpassing safety interest, a grave safety threat and a concrete danger. Which exhibits show a surpassing safety interest? Ungaro asked Panuccio, who responded by citing the statistics. Ungaro did not indicate when she would issue a ruling. Scott suspended the program in June because of the lawsuit. Meanwhile, legislation cleared a state House committee Tuesday that would allow but not require state agencies to randomly test workers every three months. CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterThe group charged with keeping vehicles moving in Citrus County will host a workshop Thursday that should affect its direction. Don Skelton, District 7 Secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), will lead a roundtable discussion for the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). Members of the TPO want to address the issue of whether to take the next step toward becoming a metropolitan planning organization (MPO), and, if so, when to move and how to do it. Transition to an MPO has been under consideration since November. At the TPOs January meeting, John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council, a nonvoting member of the TPO, said when the group was created four years ago its ultimate objective was to become an MPO. Siefert said the group would carry more authority in gaining funding for transportation projects as an MPO. The group is considering making the move now because upcoming census data may designate more urbanized areas in the county. At the groups December meeting, Dr. Tim Pitts, vice president of an economic development consulting company based in Beverly Hills, said the group should become an MPO quickly to get in ahead of national legislation raising requirements for designation as an urbanized area. Pitts made a presentation to the TPO board offering five options: dissolve the TPO; remain an advisory group to FDOT District 7; become a pseudo-MPO funded by member governments; merge with an MPO in a neighboring county; or become an independent MPO. Lee Royal, a nonvoting member representing FDOT, said at the January meeting if the county were to become an urbanized area, that designation would not guarantee transition to an MPO. The decision would result from analysis of urbanized planning and maps. Royal supported discussing the transition with Skelton. Following the workshop, the TPO will conduct its regular meeting. It will include an update on the request for qualifications for firms or individuals interested in providing transportation planning and related management services to the board, which also will decide its selection process. The board also will adopt its goals, objectives and policies.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

For the RECORD Prayer bill passes final committee The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A bill allowing inspirational messages in public schools appeared to be on the cusp of becoming law Wednesday, as the last House committee to consider the bill approved the measure. The House Judiciary Committees move sends the bill (SB 98) to the House floor; if it passes there without being amended, the measure would head to Gov. Rick Scott for his signature. Supporters of the measure say that it simply restores the constitutional rights of students by allowing them to decide without input from school officials whether an inspirational message should be delivered at school events. Local school boards could decide whether to enact rules allowing the inspirational messages. The bill is sorely needed to protect students from the war against religious liberty and free speech, said John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, which had voiced concerns about an earlier version of the measure. The Florida ACLU, the AntiDefamation League and other left-leaning groups opposition to this bill even after amended is intellectually dishonest, inconsistent with classical liberalism and really exposes their hostility toward religion as expressed by private citizens in the public square, he said. But opponents say the measure is little more than a stalking horse for religious messages. The reality is, its nothing more than a euphemism for prayer, said Rep. Richard Steinberg, D-Miami Beach. Its because we cant say prayer in a bill, because we know that the courts will strike it immediately. And that, they say, will land the state in court to defend the measure even as revenues for defending such challenges dwindles. Religious issues and government generate lots of litigation, said Pamela Burch Fort with the ACLU of Florida. And if this measure is enacted, it will invite litigation. David Barkey, religious freedom counsel for the Anti-Defamation League, labeled the measure unAmerican in a statement issued after the vote. Our public schools are about uniting children as Americans and not dividing along religious lines, Barkley said. Supporters pushed back on those notions. Rep. Charles Van Zant, the Keystone Heights Republican whos handling the measure in the House, emphasized that nothing in the bill requires prayer.

Soon, people slid down an emergency chute, inflated life vests and climbed into a raft. Mueller loved every minute of it. Most days he runs a book review website. But on this day he was living out a fantasy at American Airlines flight attendant academy, practicing evacuation procedures most people hope to never use. I look at the safety card. Its not supposed to be a comic book of things you want to try, but it all just looks cool, said Mueller, 40, of Los Angeles. There are people who grew up wanting to be Mickey Mantle. They go to Yankees fantasy camp. Others dream of playing Carnegie Hall. They join the summer orchestra at the shore. Then there are aviation geeks like Mueller. People like him and there are more than you think charter a commercial airliner and hop across the country visiting the Meccas of the aviation world. The most recent journey had 160 people paying up to $1,699 for a seat and access to spots normally off limits: Boeings sprawling 737 factory, Americans mission control-like operations center and the cockpit of the worlds largest passenger jet. Tickets sold out in 17 minutes. This is sort of the ultimate airplane nerd event, Mueller said. Most people board a plane to escape to a tropical beach, see the Eiffel Tower or visit their family. For this group, the journey isnt just half the fun. Its the whole point. They can differentiate between Boeing and Airbus jets just by looking at their tails. They know that on even-numbered flights, meals are served first from the front left of the cabin, while on odd-numbered flights, its the back right. Usually in your life, youre the only one who knows this stuff, said Gabriel Leigh, 28, a filmmaker and writer from Hong Kong. The camaraderie was part of the trips appeal. Sure, it was really cool to walk inside the first 747 ever built. But it was also fun to gulp down gin and tonics midair with other guys three out of four passengers were male who have the same passion for flying. How much fun? Well, American stocked the plane with four times the liquor of a normal flight. In each row, stories were swapped of amazing meals and opulent hotels in faraway lands all paid for with frequent flier miles. These travelers dont just love to fly; they are obsessed with collecting frequent flier miles at the cheapest possible cost. The fliers, who ranged in age from 20 to 81 and hailed from as far away as Chile, India and Italy, know the ins and outs of the programs better than anybody else and share pointers in online travel forums such as MilePoint. One tip: Prevent miles from expiring with a tiny online purchase at Target, Macys, iTunes or another retailer thats part of the airlines shopping portal. Such expertise led American Airlines and several other travel companies to help set up the trip and use it to pick the brains of these veteran fliers. They wanted to know what these travelers like and hate about the loyalty programs. Airlines need to keep their most-frequent customers happy. The top 20 percent of Americans customers generate about 70 percent of its revenue. Thats why Suzanne Rubin, the new president of the Americans frequent flier program AAdvantage hopped on the plane, along with other executives, for what she called a crash course in customer research. For those who dont travel frequently or play the mileage game, it can be daunting to understand the appeal of the programs. Its not just about free trips for this group. Its a hobby some would say obsession similar to collecting stamps or brewing your own beer. Associated PressMembers of the Megado frequent fliers group float in a circle during an aircraft water landing emergency exercise at the American Airlines training facility in Fort Worth, Texas. In the ultimate field trip for aviation geeks, 160 frequent fliers chartered an American Airlines jet and hopped across the country visiting aviation industry spots.

The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE The Senate is likely headed for a Thursday showdown over funding for the University of South Florida, with a vote looming on a package of amendments that would bring cuts to the institution down to a level that Tampaarea lawmakers consider fair. The changes filed by Sen. Jim Norman, R-Tampa would boost the budget of the main USF campus in Tampa by more than $55.3 million from where the universitys budget currently stands under the Senate proposal. Normans amendments would use almost $27 million in Public Education Capital Outlay funding to help shore up the university and would shift $6 million in cuts to other USF campuses. The amendments would also restore $22 million in funding for the pharmacy school and staffing to USF. Those funds would remain with the newly-independent Florida Polytechnic University under the Senate plan. The budget being considered by the upper chamber includes $400 million in cuts for the State University System, which Senate leaders say can be covered by drawing on universities reserves. Opponents of those cuts say state law requires universities to keep a certain level of reserves and argue that drawing on those accounts would punish schools that have done a good job of using state money. The largest of those cuts would hit USF, which has been embroiled in a fight with Senate Budget Chairman JD Alexander, R-Lake Wales, over the potential independence of its Lakeland campus, USF Polytechnic, which would become Florida Polytechnic under a separate bill being considered with the budget. Alexander has said the cuts were divvied up based on the size of a universitys reserves not based on enrollment, which has traditionally been used to guide most funding decisions for higher education. Norman vowed earlier this week to file the amendments if he wasnt satisfied with the progress made by Alexander and USF President Judy Genshaft, who met Monday to try to hammer out an agreement on the issues. If the Senate position is just going to say, Lets go to conference, Im going to be filing amendments that I believe make USF whole both in the pharmacy school to absorbing the staffing to equalizing the reserves with all the other universities in the state of Florida, Norman said. Alexander would not comment about the amendments. Thomas Hayes, 66FLORAL CITYThomas William Hayes, 66, Floral City, died February 20, 2012, at Citrus Memorial hospital.

Ihope all of you readers are doing great. This is Susan, Lovinas second oldest daughter, and I am 16 years old. Last week, I decided I wanted to write the column since my brothers and sisters will be home Friday and Monday, which is their midwinter break. Mom usually writes her column on Monday mornings, but I thought with all of the children at home it might be extra noisy and busy. So I thought Id help by writing the column. I am not much of a writer, but I will try my best. I just came inside after working with Minnie, the miniature pony I am training for a family in our church. The family has three little boys. I want to tame Minnie so they can drive her. Minnie is a very small pony, but she is strong. She pulls our little pony wagon without a problem. I really enjoy working with her, so it will be hard to see her go back to her owners after she is trained. Minnie is the second pony I have trained. Our miniature pony, Tiger, was the first. Tiger is a bigger kind of a miniature pony. He is a stallion and was a lot harder to train than Minnie. He is also a lot more stubborn and not as gentle as Minnie. I would not trust Tiger around children like I do Minnie. Every pony or horse has a different attitude. I learned that real fast after I was kicked in the leg by our mare Ginger one time. It scared me very much and taught me to always be careful because a horse can hurt you. I really enjoy working with ponies and horses. It is my most favorite hobby. My dream is to have a big horse ranch someday. It might never happen, but it does not hurt to dream. God has a plan for everyone and it might not be what we want. I want to accept whatever His plan is for me. ( Editors note: A photo of Minnie and a video of Susans school work from last year has been posted at amish cookonline.com/susan.) I will try to write about something else, but talking about horses is always a favorite topic for me. Sometimes, I help my younger brothers Benjamin and Joseph throw hay down from the loft. One time after I hadnt been up to the loft in awhile, Joseph told me we dont need a flashlight. I told him yes, we do, because there are small holes in the floor in some parts of the loft. I told him if we dont have a light, we could fall and hurt ourselves. Our hay loft doesnt have windows, so it is sort of dark even in the daylight. Joseph said it is easy to see the holes because you can see the daylight shining through the floor. I was a little doubtful but followed Joseph up the ladder without a flashlight to the hay loft. It was pretty dark there. But Joseph acted like he knew his way around pretty good, so I stayed close. Benjamin wasnt up there yet. Meanwhile, Joseph took off and I lost track of where he was. I stopped in my tracks not sure where all the holes were. Then I heard something behind me, so I called for Joseph. I screamed as someone grabbed me from behind, it was Benjamin. Turns out Benjamin snuck up in the dark to scare me. They sure had a good laugh about it. When I work with my little brothers, I never know what they are going to come up with. Older Sister Elizabeth is at her babysitting job today. Mom is sewing and I am getting ready to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies. It is Monday already and Mom is enjoying the break from writing the column, but she will be back next week. She let us all sleep in since the children are home from school today. She had breakfast burritos ready for us when we woke up. The recipe Ill share is what I usually fix when I make breakfast for my family. I usually triple it for our size family.

Julio Gerena is in a wheelchair, his long career in the U.S. Navy and Army forever behind him. But the 52-year-old recaptured some of the old military camaraderie while peeling potatoes and chopping cilantro in a crowded kitchen. Gerena was among the first 16 wounded veterans who served during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to take part in a healthy cooking boot camp sponsored by the advocacy group Wounded Warrior Project. Former service members once consumed with patrols and sentry posts learned how to poach and saut at the Culinary Institute of America, the renowned cooking school on the Hudson River. The veterans learned some kitchen tips, but seemed to enjoy even more the chance to spend four intense days with people who have faced similar hurdles. There are some things you cant really get into words, but the Wounded Warrior program is to me what being in uniform was before: the camaraderie, the trust, Gerena said. I met some of these people just a few days ago, but I share what they went through. The Jacksonville-based organization runs a range of programs for wounded veterans at locations ranging from college campuses to ski slopes. The group brought its first batch of veterans into the kitchen last week in partnership with the culinary institute.

Obama seeks corporate tax rate cut, loophole limitWASHINGTON President Barack Obama rolled out a corporate tax overhaul plan Wednesday that lowers rates but also eliminates loopholes and subsidies cherished by the business world. A longshot for action in an election year, the plan nevertheless stamps Obamas imprint on one of the most high-profile issues of the presidential campaign. The presidents plan to lower the corporate tax rate to 28 percent came on the same day Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney called for a 20 percent across-the-board cut in personal income tax rates, underscoring the potency of taxes as a political issue, especially during a modest economic recovery. Obama has not laid out a plan for overhauling personal income taxes. But he has called for Bush era tax cuts to end on individuals making more than $200,000, thus increasing their taxes, and for a 30 percent minimum tax on taxpayers who make $1 million or more.W. Va. mine boss charged with fraud in deadly blastCHARLESTON, W.Va. Federal prosecutors investigating the West Virginia coal mine explosion that killed 29 men are working their way up the corporate ladder with criminal charges. On Wednesday, the former superintendent of the Upper Big Branch mine became the highestranking company official charged in the 2010 disaster, and he is apparently cooperating with prosecutors. Gary May, 43, was charged with conspiracy to defraud the government, accused among other things of disabling a methane gas monitor, falsifying safety records and using code words to tip off miners about surprise inspections. He could get up to five years in prison if found guilty.From wire reportsBUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETHURSDAY, FEBRUARY23, 2012 A11 Advance Capital I: Balanc p 16.72-.01 RetInc 8.80+.02 Alger Funds B: SmCapGr 7.08-.03 AllianceBern A: BalanA p 16.54-.02 GlbThGrA p 67.82+.12 SmCpGrA 38.29-.26 AllianceBern Adv: LgCpGrAd 28.93-.02 AllianceBern B: GlbThGrB t 58.42+.10 GrowthB t 26.95+.02 SCpGrB t 30.66-.20 AllianceBern C: SCpGrC t 30.81-.21 Allianz Fds Instl: NFJDvVl 12.30-.06 SmCpVl 31.56-.11 Allianz Funds C: AGICGrthC 25.54+.07 TargetC t 15.43+.06 Amer Beacon Insti: LgCapInst 20.39-.13 Amer Beacon Inv: LgCap Inv 19.36-.12 Ameri Century 1st: Growth 27.58...

Stocks closed lower Wednesday for the first time in four trading days. Some investors worried about the details of a bailout deal reached for Greece this week. But analysts said investors were mostly in a holding pattern after seeing the market hit an important psychological mark. On Thursday, the government will give the latest reading on unemployment claims. They have been declining steadily and fell last week to 348,000, the lowest since March 2008. The Dow has lost ground on just four of the past 11 trading days. Its been trading at or near four-year highs for three weeks and is up 6 percent this year. On Wednesday, the Dow traded in a range of just 63 points. Over the past year, it has had smaller trading ranges on only nine other days. The average daily range over that time has been 181 points. Financial stocks led the market lower. Investors worried that a $170 billion bailout for Greece, announced Tuesday, would not be enough to keep the debtladen country from defaulting and possibly leaving the euro currency group. The Greek economy is entering its fifth year of recession. Fitch ratings agency downgraded Greece further into junk status Wednesday, to a rating of C, one notch above default. Among U.S. stocks making big moves:Computer maker Dell fell 6 percent after reporting an 18 percent drop in first-quarter profit.Toll Brothers Inc., the luxury homebuilder, fell 5 percent after posting a quarterly loss.Garmin Ltd., which makes GPS systems, jumped 9 percent after its quarterly net income rose 25 percent on higher prices and sales.

Page A12THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012 Planned ParenthoodIn response to a letter by Ruth J. Anderson:With all due respect, madam, to you and your short letteron Planned Parenthood with your liberal and progressive twist!To claim Planned Parenthood is an organization that deals with womens health issues is, to say the least, economy with truth and fact. The health issue you speak of iscaused by self. The primary purpose of Planned Parenthood is to perform abortions and to dispense birth control pills and the day-after pill. A large percentage of birth control pills are given to teens without parental consent. Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the United States.At the last count the United States government gave $363 million of taxpayer money to this nonprofit? healthcare provider. As for your statement on Planned Parenthood being a provider of care for breast cancer patients, bull. You are referred to another medical agency! As a side bar 4,000 abortions are done daily by Planned Parenthood and other abortions plants. I suggest, madam, you read Planned Parenthood articles of incorporation. In closing, deal with this abortion fact: 93 percent of all abortions occur for social reasons i.e., the child is unwanted or at best inconvenient! As for your statement, There should not be a controlling organization of any kind that tells women what to do say what you mean.If it is the church you speak of then have the intestinal fortitude to say it. You are right, this is the United States of America and it is governed by a constitution. Read the First Amendment. It speaks of religious liberty.Michael E. Pitts InvernessHistoric eventOn Feb. 23, 1945, five U.S. Marines and one U.S. Navy corpsman were on a hill on an island in the central Pacific Ocean: Sgt. Michael Strank, Pfc. Franklin Sousley, Pfc. Harlon Block, Pfc. Ira Hayes, Pfc. Rene Gagnon and Pharmacists Mate John Bradley. They were members of Easy Company. 2nd Battalion, 28th Marines, 5th Marine Division. Three of these Marines would die in battle later after thy found a piece of pipe. The rest is history.Neville Anderson Sergeant, USMC (ret.) In their unflagging efforts to distance themselves from mainstream America, Republican leaders have gleefully seized upon a social issue thats guaranteed to backfire in November: Birth control. If youre mystified, youre not alone. Ignoring years of publicopinion polls, the GOP is boldly marching backward into the 1960s to question whether contraception is a legitimate health care benefit. The target, as always, is President Obama. He issued an executive mandate requiring free birth control be included in health plans provided to employees of schools, charities and hospitals connected to religiously affiliated institutions. Although the mandate excludes churches, Roman Catholic bishops are in a huff, saying the contraception provision violates the First Amendment and freedom of religion. Never mind that Obama softened the rule so the insurance companies, not the employers, will pay for the coverage. Never mind many employees served by these health care plans dont share the same religion as the institute for whom they work. Republican strategists see the controversy as another opportunity to bash Obamas health care reforms, and to rile up white Christian evangelicals who dont like the president anyway. As political miscalculations go, this one could be epic. If youre looking for a sure way to galvanize female voters against your own party, attack birth control. Whom does the administrations mandate help? Teachers, secretaries, nurses, lab techs working women who cant afford, or dont choose, to get pregnant. Yet to hear the yowls of outrage, youd think these hospitals and schools were being ordered to round up their workers and force-feed them birth-control pills against their will. Leading the opposition are Catholic bishops, whose archaic dictums against contraception are widely disregarded by their own flock. According to most surveys, about 98 percent of sexually active Catholic women use some type of birth control. Its safe to assume a rather large segment includes employees of, say, the University of Notre Dame. Polling also shows more than two-thirds of all practicing Catholics believe you can still be a good Catholic if you use contraception. So, they basically humor the church hierarchy on this subject, politely listening to priestly reminders and acknowledging the occasional admonition from the pope himself. Theres no movement to excommunicate parishioners for the alleged sin of using condoms, IUDs or pills because it would effectively leave most churches empty as a tomb on Sundays. Now, after decades of having their stance against birth control ignored, Catholic bishops have finally found a receptive audience: Republicans in Congress. Last week, having nothing more important to do, a House committee scheduled a hearing modestly titled: Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience? Meanwhile, Senate Republicans are seeking to block any health-insurance rules that conflict with a business owners private beliefs, whatever that means. If such an amendment passes, we could theoretically see a mass conversion to Catholicism among company executives trying to squirm out of offering birth control in their employees medical policies. Smart corporations already provide contraceptive coverage because its way cheaper than paying obstetrical costs for unplanned pregnancies. Interestingly, as the bishops and their newfound evangelical allies promise to fight on in the courts and in Congress to knock down the presidents rule, little mention is being made of the large federal sums received by many of the religiously affiliated institutions affected by the birthcontrol mandate. Why should any school or hospital that takes a dime of taxpayer money be exempt from providing the same healthcare benefits that apply across the board? Thats what contraception is basic health care and thats how its perceived by a majority of Americans. In a New York Times/CBS poll last week, 65 percent of those surveyed said they support Obamas directive that all health-insurance plans should include birth control. Fifty-nine percent of everyone interviewed, as well as 57 percent of Catholics, said contraceptives should be provided by the medical plans of religiously affiliated employers. Obviously, limiting the availability of birth control is an unpopular idea in this country. That its getting traction in Congress illustrates how completely the Republican Party has been carjacked by its bug-eyed, rightwing fringe. Even as national womens groups mobilize to support the administration, the GOP presidential candidates are piping up to denounce the birth-control benefit as a sinister plot against religion. Among the alarmed is Mitt Romney, who as governor of Massachusetts uttered not a whisper of objection to a state law that was virtually identical to the presidents mandate. You can be certain the fall election wont hinge on social issues settled in the minds of voters decades ago. If the Republicans stay on this sorry, dead-end path, Obamas task is clear: Ice the champagne.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald and can be contacted by writing to 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.Margaret Sanger, Dec. 1, 1963 GOP steps back on birth control 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 BOARDGerry Mulligan ..........................................publisherCharlie Brennan ............................................editorMike Arnold ..........................................HR directorSandra Frederick ............................managing editorCurt Ebitz ........................................citizen memberMac Harris ......................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ................................guest member New offices will better serve public After a decade of struggling with a leaky roof, cramped working quarters, not enough bathrooms for employees and the public, and flooding issues in the parking lot, county officials opened the doors to its new county office building at Meadowcrest last week. The county commissions decision to relocate constitutional officers offices from the city of Crystal River to an unincorporated area outside city limits rightfully drew scrutiny. Tension between the city and County Commissioner Dennis Damato was very public. However, in fairness, city officials did little to sway commissioners during its five-year search to find a west-side location. Suggestions of revamping a few of the blighted buildings on U.S. 19 w as not embraced by the commission and it moved forward on the Meadowcrest location. In the end, Damato made things happen and the county signed on the dotted line with Stan Olsen, the owner of the property. This move is a longterm solution and will not only meet the needs of today but also down the road as the county grows. With the move behind us, one of the top concerns we now have with the new location is safely accessing the office off of State Road 44 and County Road 486. A traffic signal is desperately needed at both ends of the thoroughfare. Turning left into the site from S.R. 44 eastbound and turning east onto S.R. 44 when leaving the county office create situations in which a fatal accident is likely to happen. Factor in the new Family Dollar store across the street, shoppers coming and going from Winn Dixie and county employees going home at the end of the day, and traffic is going to be a very dangerous problem. While we would urge the state Department of Transportation to recognize the dangerous situation and install a signal, the county is prepared to absorb the $200,000 project. Thats prudent, as safety of the public is a priority. THE ISSUE:Westside county offices open for business.OUR OPINION:It was a good move.

Fair enough, but the unemployment numbers I cited are correct. Unemployment was 8.2 percent in February 2009. Most of us understand that a presidents term of office is from February through January. January 2009 under Bush, they were 7.8 percent and in February under Obama, 8.2. During the meltdown in the latter part of 2008, unemployment rose from 5.8 to 7.8 percent and the economy was in a freefall. For the caller to use November 2008 as a reference point is meaningless, since we all know a lot happened at the end of the Bush term in 2008. Incidentally, using the callers selective use of dates, you may recall that during the first 30 months of the Bush presidency with a Republican Congress, unemployment increased from 4.2 to 6.3 percent. The last 24 months of that deterioration came after the Bush tax cuts, and those cuts never did allow us to get back to the levels we enjoyed at the end of the Clinton administration.

Crown princess about to give birthSTOCKHOLM The Swedish Royal Court said Crown Princess Victoria had been admitted to a hospital Thursday for the birth of her first child, who would be a future heir to the throne. Court spokesman David Lofvendahl told The Associated Press that Victoria and her husband, Prince Daniel, went to the Karolinska Hospital at around 12:30 a.m. Victoria married Daniel, a commoner and her former personal trainer, in June 2010. In August last year, the Royal Court announced that Victoria was pregnant and expected to give birth in early 2012. Victoria, 34, is next in line to the throne held by her father, King Carl XVI Gustaf, since 1973.

It was Argentinas worst train accident in decades. The cause wasnt immediately determined, but many pointed to a deteriorating rail system. Some passengers reported signs the conductor was struggling with the brakes before the crash, saying he kept overshooting platforms and missed one entirely. The dead included 48 adults and one child most of whom had crowded into the first two cars to get ahead of the rush-hour crowds on arrival. Some 600 people were injured, including 461 who were hospitalized, Transportation Secretary J.P. Schiavi said. Hours after the crash, passengers relatives gathered at the morgue anxious for word of their loved ones. Speaking at a news conference, Schiavi defended the rail systems maintenance record. It was an accident like those in many other countries, he said. Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Clashes between Afghan troops and protesters angry over the burning of Muslim holy books at a U.S. military base left at least seven people dead and dozens wounded Wednesday as anger spread despite U.S. apologies over what it said was a mistake. The demonstrations across four eastern provinces illustrated the intensity of Afghans anger at what they saw as foreign forces flouting their laws and insulting their culture. The violence was also a reminder of how easily Afghan-U.S. relations can deteriorate as the two countries work to forge a long-term partnership ahead of the withdrawal of foreign forces in 2014. The unrest started Tuesday when Afghan workers at the main American military base, Bagram Air Field, saw soldiers dumping books in a pit where garbage is burned and noticed Qurans and other religious material among the trash. The top U.S. and NATO commander, Gen. John Allen, quickly issued an apology and telephoned President Hamid Karzai and major news organizations to explain that a collection of religious materials, including Qurans, had been mistakenly sent to be incinerated. As soon as someone realized what they were burning, they stopped and retrieved what was left, Allen said. Four copies of the Quran were burned before the incineration was halted, according to initial Afghan government reports. Anger about the burning spread overnight. A single demonstration outside the Bagram base on Tuesday gave way to three protests in the capital, Kabul, on Wednesday, along with demonstrations in the major eastern city of Jalalabad and in Logar and Parwan province, where Bagram is located. In Kabul, about 2,000 people massed outside a heavily guarded housing complex for foreigners, chanting Death to America! as they hurled rocks at the compounds reinforced walls and set a fuel truck ablaze. The complex known as green village because it boasts security equal to a military base houses foreign contractors, police and some coalition military forces. Eighteen-year-old Mohammad Shaker said he first heard about the Quran burning on Tuesday, and he and other members of his mosque decided to take to the streets Wednesday after morning prayers. This is not the first time theyre doing these things. They are killing civilians and taking photos of them. Every day they kill civilians with airstrikes. We cant accept their crimes in our country, Shaker said. The demonstrations prompted the U.S. to lock down its embassy and bar its staff from traveling. By nightfall, seven people had been killed four in Parwan province and one each in Kabul, Jalalabad and Logar province, and dozens were wounded, the Interior Ministry said. Associated PressBlack smoke leaps into the air from tires burnt by protesters Wednesday during an anti-U.S. demonstration in Kabul, Afghanistan. Anti-American demonstrations erupted on the outskirts of Kabul for a second day Wednesday and in another Afghan city over an incident that the U.S. said was inadvertent burning of Muslim holy books at a military base in Afghanistan.

Court weighs military honors, free speech Associated PressWASHINGTON Free speech cases before the Supreme Court often lead justices to consider farfetched scenarios, and Wednesdays argument over a law making it a crime to lie about having received top military honors was no exception. One after another, the justices wanted to know whether a decision upholding the Stolen Valor Act could lead down a slippery slope to new laws against such things as lying about the Holocaust, an extramarital affair, a high school diploma, college degrees or to impress a date. Where do you stop? Chief Justice John Roberts asked at one point. But the justices also suggested that it might be possible in this case to uphold the 2006 law anyway by reasoning that Congress has an interest in protecting medals it created to honor war heroes. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who asked about lies about college degrees, also seemed open to sustaining the law. Here it does seem to me that you can argue that this is something like a trademark, a medal in which the government and the armed forces have a particular interest, and we could carve out a narrow exception for that. I think we would have to do that, Kennedy said. The high court has overwhelmingly rejected limits on speech, striking down a federal ban on videos showing graphic violence against animals. The court also rejected the attempt by the father of a dead Marine to sue fundamentalist church members who staged a mocking protest at his sons funeral. And in 1989, the court said the Constitution protects the burning of the American flag. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the earlier cases made clear that merely offending others by itself is not enough to justify limiting speech. So outside of the emotional reaction, wheres the harm? And Im not minimizing it. I, too, take offense when people make these kinds of claims, but I take offense when someone Im dating makes a claim thats not true, said Sotomayor, who is divorced. She seemed the least willing member of the court to accept the Obama administrations defense of the law and disputed the view that the value of the highest award, the Medal of Honor, or any others has been diminished because some people lie about having received them. The administrations top Supreme Court lawyer, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr., defended the law as targeted to protect the integrity of the system established by George Washington. The Stolen Valor Act regulates a very narrowly drawn and specific category of calculated factual falsehood, a verifiably false claim that an individual has won a military honor, Verrilli said. On the other side of Sotomayor was Justice Antonin Scalia. When Congress passed this legislation, I assume it did so because it thought that the value of the awards that these courageous members of the armed forces were receiving was being demeaned and diminished by charlatans. Thats what Congress thought, Scalia said. Shelling kills 2 Western journalists in Syria Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian gunners pounded an opposition stronghold where the last dispatches from a veteran American-born war correspondent chronicled the suffering of civilians caught in the relentless shelling. An intense morning barrage killed her and a French photojournalist two of 74 deaths reported Wednesday in Syria. I watched a little baby die today, Marie Colvin told the BBC from the embattled city of Homs on Tuesday in one of her final reports. Absolutely horrific, a 2year old child had been hit, added Colvin, who worked for Britains Sunday Times. They stripped it and found the shrapnel had gone into the left chest and the doctor said, I cant do anything. His little tummy just kept heaving until he died. Colvin and photographer Remi Ochlik were among a group of journalists who had crossed into Syria and were sharing accommodations with activists, raising speculation that government forces targeted the makeshift media center, although opposition groups had previously described the shelling as indiscriminate. At least two other Western journalists were wounded. Hundreds of people have died in weeks of siege-style attacks on Homs that have come to symbolize the desperation and defiance of the nearly year-old uprising against President Bashar Assad. The Syrian military appears to be stepping up assaults to block the opposition from gaining further ground and political credibility with the West and Arab allies. On Wednesday, helicopter gunships reportedly strafed mountain villages that shelter the rebel Free Syrian Army, and soldiers staged door-to-door raids in Damascus, among other attacks.

SPORTSSection BTHURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Woods scrapes by foe at Match Play No. 1 seed Donald knocked out in Arizona event Associated PressMARANA, Ariz. Tiger Woods had to play a left-handed shot out of the desert. Retief Goosen holed out from 156 yards and didnt even win the hole. Dustin Johnson twice won a hole after taking a penalty drop. But the strangest sight of all Wednesday at the Match Play Championship didnt come from the golf course. It was Luke Donald on his way to the airport. Golf is like that sometimes, Donald said after his 5and-4 loss to Ernie Els, becoming only the third No. 1 seed to lose in the opening round. Its a fickle game, and sometimes it bites you. It almost took a bite out of Woods, who had to rally to beat Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano; and U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, the No. 2 seed who was 3 up with three holes to play and was sweating on the 18th until George Coetzee missed a short putt for par. Donald was so dominant last year in winning the Match Play Championship that he closed out all six of his matches before they reached the 18th hole. He wont be playing the closing hole at Dove Mountain this year, either. Els, who only got into the 64-man field when Phil Mickelson took his family on a ski vacation, delivered the biggest shocker in the first round by taking the lead for good on the eighth hole and putting the worlds No. 1 player in a hole from which he couldnt recover. Donald lost in the opening round for the first time in eight appearances in this World Golf Championship. I dont think it would have mattered who I played today.

Dwight Howard had 20 points and 17 rebounds and the Orlando Magic rolled to a 108-91 victory over the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday. Howard, who can become a free agent in July if the Magic dont trade him by the March 15 trading deadline, got the loudest cheers from the crowd of 15,364 in the pregame introductions. And the center didnt disappoint in leading the Magic to their ninth straight win over the Brooklyn-bound Nets. Glen Davis, who hit his first seven shots, added 16 points for Orlando, which won for the eighth time in 11 games. Deron Williams had 23 points, six rebounds and eight assists to lead New Jersey, which headed into the All-Star breaking having lost 8 of 11. Rookie MarShon Brooks added a game-high 24, while Brook Lopez had 15 in his second game of the season after recovering from a broken right foot. Orlando shot 62.5 percent in the opening 12 minutes and jumped to a 34-17 lead. The final 4:16 were the key with the Magic closing the quarter with a 13-2 spurt that came mostly with Howard sitting on the bench. Davis hit all four of his shots and Jameer Nelson, who also had eight points in the period, hit a 3-pointer, one of 13 on the night by Orlando.

As a deputy escorted the woman to a patrol car, a sheriffs report states, Wilder stepped between the deputy and the woman and pushed the deputy. Wilder was arrested and charged with obstructing a law enforcement officer without violence and battery on the officer. Jail records show he was released on $2,000 bail.

From wire reports NASCARs eyes on her SANDRAFREDERICK Staff WriterDAYTONA BEACH When Danica Patrick walks through the garage areas at Daytona International Speedway, she is just one of the guys. But when she strolls through the Fan Zone area or past the Media Center at the race track, she is bombarded with requests for autographs and interviews. The 5-foot-2, 100-pound former open-wheel driver turned NASCAR driver has a lot of pressure on her to win races and the fans, media, racing officials and other drivers are watching. During a recent interview with Performance Racing Network, she said the added attention on her has not increased her stress level heading into her first Daytona 500. I feel good, she told PRN. Lets not forget I have been exposed to the Indy 500, which is one the biggest races in the world if not the biggest race in the world. Although female drivers have come and gone in the series over the last few decades, Danica believers are betting on the fact her skills are on the same level as her male counterparts. I think she is a competent driver, Jeff Gordon, driver of the No. 24 DuPont Chevrolet, said last week. She has raced her whole life and earned her way into Indy and now she has earned her way into here. Gordon is among many drivers in the garage giving her the thumbs up and thinks she is a great marketing tool for the sport. Who doesnt want to see a female come in and race with the males, Gordon added.

It was the worst of times, it was the could-havebeen-worse of times. OK, apologies to Charles Dickens, but there was no best of times in either of two recent emergencies in Gulf waters. I hope what follows will help you avoid both worse and worst. From a press release concerning an incident this past Sunday: Watchstanders from Coast Guard Sector St. Petersburg received a transferred 911 call at 7 p.m. Sunday, from a concerned family member. The reporting source stated three men, ages 53, 40 and 16 were overdue from a sailing trip. The men departed from Cedar Key to sail their 16-foot fiberglass catamaran around Atsena Otie Key. The reporting source also stated the mariners had no motor, lights, electronics or emergency equipment aboard. The search for the men involved a Jayhawk rescue helicopter from Clearwater, FWC officers and Levy County officers and marine unit. After seven hours, at 4:30 a.m., the men were spotted approximately two miles offshore southeast of Atsena Otie on the hull of their capsized boat. A rescue swimmer was lowered and plucked the men from the boat. As Richard Hutchinson, a Coast Guard search-andrescue coordinator, pointed out, those hours spent clinging to a capsized boat, with the attendant risk of hypothermia, could have been avoided. Last nights search conditions were very difficult, said Hutchinson. A hand-held radio or Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon could have saved all involved several hours in a hostile marine environment. Just eight days earlier, the Coast Guard rescued two young men who had also been unceremoniously dumped into the Gulf, this time near Pinellas Point, at about 1:45 in the afternoon, when their Hobie Cat capsized. No fun, but things could have been worse. Ten minutes later, the Coast Guard launched a response boat, and recovered both men at 2:07 p.m. The difference? The men aboard the Hobie Cat were able to call the Coast Guard on Channel 16 on a hand-held radio. Hours in the water, not knowing whether youd be found in time or die of hypothermia, versus a 25minute wait for help you knew was on its way. Which do you choose? Oh, and if you think you dont need a radio because you have a cell phone aboard, ask yourself this: Have I ever had no signal on my phone? Last summer, I cautioned about a companys proposed cell phone system installation with the potential to permanently disrupt the Global Positioning System used by aviators, boaters and others, and asked that you contact your representatives in Congress, as well as the Federal Communications Commission, and request revocation of the permit. You did, along with 18,000 others who responded to the same request by BoatUS; it worked. On Feb. 14, the FCC announced plans to revoke the conditional permit it had previously issued to the company, LightSquared. You can relax a bit, but dont drop your guard completely. The FCC now has to have a 15-day period for comments on its decision to rescind the permit. It wont hurt to send a reminder to the folks in D.C., so drop them another note. Last week, we pointed out that with the erratic weather were having, seatrout will move from deeper water into the shallows in order to sun themselves and soak up the heat given off by rocky bottom once theres enough water in the shallow areas. Captain Mike Baize reports an abundance of trout doing just that around Long Point, near Ozello. Get in on that action.

Tide charts Will your rescue take 25 minutes or seven hours? RG SchmidtTIGHT LINES April is right around the corner. For local bass-tournament anglers, that means the Citrus County Bass Challenge is nearly here. Nearly a decade ago, The Key Training Centers Melissa Walker asked me to help put together a fishing tournament to benefit the Key. With lots of help from a variety of people and resources, the first tournament came together and has taken on a life of its own. This year the tournament date is set for April 28. First and foremost, the purpose of the event is to raise dollars to benefit those who utilize the services of the Key Training Center. The Key Center works to ensure developmentally disabled adults and their families are offered the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of services including education, day and vocational training, residential options and community-living support. Lots of moving parts must fall in line before the tournament begins. Several months prior to the tournament, meetings are held to coordinate efforts to make sure all of the various parts are in place. The gears of the tournament begin to turn in earnest on Friday, the day before the event. A group of volunteers and Key Center workers descend upon the public boat ramp in Dunnellon to begin setting up tents, weigh-in tanks, tables, chairs and the like. Its the calm before the storm. The event attracts all types of anglers. Participants vary from seasoned tournament veterans who have competed at the highest level of the sport to mom-and-pop teams who fish in one tournament each year to aspiring anglers hoping to make a name for themselves the event has something for everyone. Teams begin arriving around 2 a.m. and trickle in for the next three and a half hours or so. A palpable intensity builds through the early morning hours as they slowly pass. Some teams have spent more than a week prefishing the waters, scouting likely areas and learning the habitats of the fish they hope will push the scales down the farthest. Anxious anglers make small talk with one another. Others sit in their boats planning strategy and awaiting their starting numbers to be called. Some catch up with friends over coffee and doughnuts during the hours prior to the start. As the eastern sky begins to splinter and the first rays of light mark the beginning of the day, lastminute safety items are checked and, one by one, boats are sent on their way. After the final boat is released, things seem calm and quiet for the first time in several hours. That all changes later in the afternoon. Beginning at 3 p.m., the first of four flights of competitors come back to the boat ramp area and begin the weigh-in process. It takes about one hour to weigh all the fish. The fish must measure a minimum size to be eligible for consideration, and no more than five bass per team may be brought to the scales. As tournament director, I think I have the best job of the day. I get to weigh the fish and get a few moments with each of the men and women who come to the scales with fish. We talk about tips and tricks and share them with the crowd. Pictures are snapped of the large bass that make it to the scales. Care is taken to quickly release all of the fish alive into the tan waters of the river to be caught again some day. Once all of the fish are weighed, the final results are determined. The team with the heaviest, fivebass limit caught in a legal manner (on artificial lures) receives the top prize as well as bragging rights for the next year. Weights are tallied down through the top 10 and the prize money paid descends accordingly. A number of contingency prizes are also given to teams that may not have had such a good fishing day. A big-bass award is also presented for the largest bass caught during the event. That fish pays somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000. First place pays in the neighborhood of $4,500 to $5,000. Not bad for an eight-hour day of fishing. Sixth through 10th places receive $300. Prizes are based on a 100-boat field. An entry fee of $150 is required to participate and an optional $10 big-bass pot is available. So, if fishing isnt your bag but youd like to see what its all about, mark your calendar for April 28 and plan on stopping by the public boat ramp in Dunnellon that afternoon. If youre interested in getting out on the Withlacoochee River for a competitive (or not-socompetitive) day of fishing, the Key Training Centers Citrus County Bass Challenge is for you. You can call 352-7955541 ext. 311 or go to www.keytrainingcenter. org for more information.

We have had other women in the sport, here as well as Indy. We will have to see how she does. One of her biggest supporters is her new teammate, Tony Stewart, the 2011 Sprint Cup champion. He is quick to say she fits right in with the guys and is looking forward to racing with her. Stewart said she has already grown in leaps and bounds during her limited schedule last year in the Nationwide Series and expects even greater performances from her this year. She learns so fast, more than any other rookie I have seen, said Stewart, who drives the No. 14 Office Depot/Mobile 1 car. You cant teach it, it is a skill and there is no doubt in my mind she has skill.Chronicle managing editor Sandra Frederick can be reached at 352-5642930 or sfrederick@ chronicleonline.com just didnt play well, Donald said. I struggled. I gave away too many holes and made too many mistakes. You cant do that in match play against anyone, let alone Ernie. Woods nearly found that out, too. He trailed the Spaniard with four holes to play, and both of them looked beatable. That changed when Woods drove the par-4 15th green to win with a two-putt birdie, won the 16th with a par and then closed out the Spaniard with an 8-foot par putt for a 1-up win. We both made our share of mistakes, theres no doubt about that, said Woods. But somehow, I was able to move on. That was the only objective in this World Golf Championship, a single-elimination format in which the only proper use of the word upset is the mood of the 32 guys who are headed home. Among them: Ian Poulter, the Match Play winner two years ago, suffered his worst loss in nine appearances when Bae Sang-moon beat him, 4 and 3. Bill Haas, coming off that monster win at Riviera just three days ago, looked like a winner when he was 1 up on the 17th green and had a 5-foot birdie putt. Ryo Ishikawa holed from 18 feet, Haas missed, and the Japanese star made par on the 18th to win. In the most thrilling match of the opening round, Jim Furyk was on the verge of sending Johnson home early for the fourth straight year when Johnson hit his tee shot into the desert and had to take a penalty drop on the 20th hole. Furyk chipped across the green and threeputted for bogey to lose. Rafael Cabrera-Bello was 3 up with three holes to play against Jason Day when he bogeyed three straight holes, and Day beat him with a 4-foot birdie putt on the 19th hole. The other top seeds didnt have too many problems, although McIlroy had a nervous moment. He won four straight holes on the back nine to seize control against Coetzee and was 3 up with three to play when McIlroy lost the next two holes with bogeys, then popped up a tee shot and made par a challenge. Coetzee, however, blew his approach some 60 feet long on the 18th and three-putted for bogey, giving McIlroy a 2-up win. Lee Westwood never trailed in his 3-and-1 win over Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium. The test for Westwood comes on Thursday against Robert Karlsson, when he tries to advance to the third round for the first time. Citrus boys win Lecanto Early Bird Invitational Wenger leads HurricanesLARRYBUGG CorrespondentLECANTO Tim Wenger can truly enjoy the track season in his final year of competing in high school sports.

For more about the festival visit www.willmclean.com FSU finally finds replacement for WVU Seminoles football team will host Savannah State Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State has replaced perennial college football power West Virginia on its 2012 schedule with little Savannah State. The Seminoles will host The Tigers, from the Football Championship Subdivision, on Sept. 8 as a replacement opponent for the Mountaineers. West Virginia broke the front end of a home-andhome contract with the Seminoles to ostensibly accommodate their move from the Big East Conference to the Big 12. Athletic Director Randy Spetman and his top associate, Monk Bonasorte, said Wednesday they have been scrambling for nearly three weeks trying to fill the scheduling hole created by West Virginias decision earlier this month to back out of the highly anticipated early season contest. Florida State receives a $500,000 buyout and may sue to recover approximately $2 million in revenue losses. We contacted every BCS school that had an opening in hopes to replace (West Virginia) with a BCS opponent, Spetman said. None of those few schools could make it work either because of our dates or theirs. Spetman said they talked with Arkansas, Cincinnati, Oklahoma, Pitt, Syracuse and Texas A&M among others. Weve done everything we could to explore all the options for a home game, said coach Jimbo Fisher, who is 19-8 after his first two seasons at Florida State. Spetman said Florida State plans to honor its end of the deal and play the scheduled 2013 game in Morgantown, W. Va. Florida State rejected some overtures to turn a scheduled home date into a road game in consideration of local merchants. Lee Daniel, the executive director of Visit Tallahassee, said the economic impact of home football games range between $1 million and $10 million depending on the opponent and time of game. Spetman said the university grossed roughly $2.5 million more from last years home game against Oklahoma than it did from a game one week earlier against tiny Charleston Southern, a smaller-division school that finished its 2011 season 0-11. A member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, Savannah State finished 1-10 in the 2011 season and was outscored by an average of nearly 31 points in its losses. Florida A&M, which sits less than a mile away from the Florida State campus, routed Savannah State 47-7 last year in Savannah. Savannah State has got a great band, Spetman said, noting that the school would make Sept. 8 band day. Savannah State will receive $475,000 for its visit. Marlins hoping pitcher will curb temper Associated PressJUPITER Carlos Zambrano waited until the end of his throwing session Wednesday to try out a brushback pitch on Ozzie Guillen. The Miami Marlins manager was leaning on a bat near home plate, watching Zambrano work, when a fastball came whizzing his direction. Guillen let out a yelp and dodged the pitch with a frantic skip. He was in my way, Zambrano said. No, Im just kidding. Thats the last time he throws at somebody, Guillen said with a laugh. Probably not. Zambrano wore out his welcome with the Chicago Cubs because of a combative personality, so there are likely more brushbacks to come. The Marlins are counting on it. Its going to be a fun season for Carlos, said Guillen, a fellow Venezuelan and the biggest reason Zambrano landed with Miami. He cant wait to show people how good he can be. Is Carlos going to be mad? Of course. I want him to be mad. It was too much, too long the last couple of years, but I want him to be himself. Zambrano had a series of run-ins with teammates, management and umpires before his 11-year Cubs career ended last August when he was ejected from a game, cleaned out his locker, talked about retiring and was suspended without pay. He subsequently apologized, and did so again Wednesday. In my mind and my heart I just wanted to help the club and do good for them, Zambrano said. The fans deserve a championship in Chicago. Hopefully they can get it soon. They were outstanding for me, and I appreciate that. I have nothing but thanks for everybody in Chicago, but I have to move forward and help this team win a championship. To do so, Zambrano must harness his emotions. Anger management classes in Chicago didnt help. Can he keep his cool in sweltering Miami? Wait to see, he said. There was a lot for Zambrano to get upset about last season, the worst of his career. His velocity dropped and his ERA soared to 4.82, his highest by nearly a run. The three-time All-Star gave up more than one hit per inning for the first time, and he went 9-7 in 24 starts. Last month, Zambrano became part of the Marlins makeover when they acquired him for right-hander Chris Volstad. It was a low-risk deal for Miami, which will pay only $2.55 million of Zambranos $18 million salary. Longtime friend Guillen, the Marlins new manager, encouraged the trade. We really took Ozzies lead, president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said. It was an opportunity to bring in a veteran who knows the league. This guy competes and wants to win. No one doubts that. Losing tore up Zambrano; as a result, he tore up the Cubs clubhouse. Now hes with a team that expects to give the Phillies and Braves a run for the NL East title. We have everything, Zambrano said. Pitching, good bullpen, speedy team, power team, good manager. Its up to us. A winning environment might help Zambrano turn things around, and hes already getting plenty of TLC. Closer Heath Bell, another Marlins newcomer, greeted the big right-hander with a hug when they first met last week. He hasnt stopped smiling since Ive seen him, Bell said. I told him every day Im going to give him a hug. And he said, Every day Im going to smile. And I said, All right, this is a beautiful friendship. Braves Uggla wants fast start Associated PressKISSIMMEE When Dan Uggla arrived for spring training with the Atlanta Braves, he felt at home. The layout of the clubhouse was just as he remembered it. He knew where to find his locker. All the guys seemed like old friends. Its a more comfortable feeling, Uggla said, pulling on his uniform. I know where my place is on this team. I already know everybody respects me as a ballplayer, the way I go about my business. Its not like Im trying to set the stage for something. Its already out there. The Braves can only hope that Ugglas familiarity leads to a much better start in 2012. A year ago, after being acquired from the Marlins and signed to a five-year, $62 million contract, Uggla pressed to make a good first impression on his new team and wound up making a mess of the first half of the season. Hed always been a slow starter anyway, but this was ridiculous. By the Fourth of July, the Mendoza Line was some faraway fantasy for the slugging infielder. Ugglas average was a puny .173 downright embarrassing for any player, much less one of his stature. The next day, he started a hitting streak that lasted 33 games the longest in Atlanta history. Of course, after putting himself in such a deep hole, Uggla was only able to raise his average to .233 by the end of the season. Still, he turned in a more-thanrespectable year, considering how it began, leading the Braves with 36 homers and 82 RBIs, while extending his streak of 30-homer seasons to five in a row. No other second baseman in baseball history has more than three. Still, theres the matter of that hideous slump. What I went through last year, its hard to put a finger on it, Uggla said. I guess somebody wanted me to struggle for three months. Maybe they were testing my character. Who knows? Thats just the way it went down. Whos to say why or how or what happened. Actually, hes just a player who doesnt want to make excuses. Its clear he put too much pressure on himself coming to a new team. He knew the Braves expected big production in the middle of their lineup. Thats why they made the trade. Thats why they forked over that huge contract. Uggla who struggled mightily just to make it to the big leagues was determined to show everyone he wasnt going to work any less. Heck, he would work even harder. Then, when the outs piled up, he pressed even harder. Before he knew it, Ugglas season had all the makings of a total bust. I wouldve loved to have hit 20 homers in April, he said. For it to go the opposite way, it was one of those things I had to battle through. But yeah, of course, theres added pressure. Its just there. Its automatically gonna be there. Whether you put it on yourself or you dont, its there. Because its a new team, a new contract. But Im not saying thats why I (stunk) for the first half. Because theres gonna be pressure every year. Associated PressMiami Marlins pitcher Carlos Zambrano throws during spring training Wednesday in Jupiter. The Marlins are betting that Zambrano, a former Chicago Cub, can keep his legendary temper under control and produce at a high level in Miamis rotation. Associated PressAtlanta Braves Chipper Jones, center, Brian McCann, right, and Dan Uggla model the clubs new alternative home uniform during a news conference to introduce the new threads on Feb. 6 in Atlanta. The uniform pays homage to the teams past, reflecting more of the look of the 1966 team.

Franklin clarifies Houston remarksNEW YORK Aretha Franklin says Cissy Houston raised her daughter Whitney Houston well and that an interview where Franklin said parents need to make sure children leave home prepared was taken out of context. Franklin released a statement Wednesday, four days after Houstons funeral. She was expected to sing at the funeral, but bowed out because of leg problems. In an interview about Houston on NBCs Today show last week, Franklin said parents need to talk to their children to make sure they leave home prepared, really. She left home with all the right things. Franklin said her full statement This is no reflection on Cissy or Nippys upbringing, using a nickname for Houston wasnt aired. Houston fought substance abuse for years. The cause of her Feb. 11 death has yet to be determined.X Factor teen signs record dealLOS ANGELES Rachel Crow was a tearful runner-up on The X Factor, but shes a winner now.

JAKECOYLE AP Entertainment WriterREDDING, Conn. Down a quiet country road in rural Connecticut, in a home with a stone wall out front and glittery pinecones on the coffee table, lives Michael Ian Black. It is, if anything, an unlikely outpost for one of comedys most freeflowing fonts, a prodigious, medium-shifting comic who came up as a member of the sketch comedy troupe The State, went on to make cult TV shows and movies, and has now transitioned into standup and book writing. More than 1.7 million follow his steady stream of jokes and observations on Twitter. The peculiar normalcy of his residence isnt lost on Black. Of his peaceful town, Redding, he says, most of the crime here is committed by me. Even last night, I was walking around this house, and just going, This is my house? says Black, gazing around on the interiors which house him, his wife Martha HagenBlack, their two children, their dog and their cat. Its that sense of curious dissociation that kicks off Blacks new book, Youre Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Death and Other Humiliations. Its a comedic memoir-ish tale that Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, will publish Tuesday. He opens the book with the selfexamination of a midlife crisis, lamenting the mere image of the word forty (his age) as like a shrub that died while morosely scouring the Internet for photos of Fat Kevin Federline a kind a stand-in for all of Blacks fears of failure, irrelevance and terrible hair decisions. I wonder if, like me, there are people who occasionally experience the curious, disembodying sensation of not recognizing their present life as their own, writes Black. It is a feeling I can only describe as the opposite of deja vu. What follows is a kind of inspection of that life, principally his relationship with Hagen-Black and their experience raising two children. Though Youre Not Doing It Right has much comedy in it, its foremost trait is its honesty a clear-eyed truth-telling about the hardships of marriage (including the admission that both he and Hagen-Black sometimes fantasize about divorce), the death of his father, and the frustrations of childrearing (the music of Creed, of all things, sparks an emotional breakthrough on fatherhood). But even uttering the label memoir approximate but unavoidable bothers Black. Its like Im lashing myself when I say it, he says. It implies a level of accomplishment that I certainly dont feel. I havent really achieved anything other than landing on basic television. ... Tina Fey, she can write a memoir. Black doesnt savor his choice, knowing it rings of bandwagonhopping. Comedic memoirs have become en vogue in recent years, including those by Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman and Blacks fellow State alum and frequent collaborator Michael Showalter, who released the postmodern Mr. Funny Pants last year. Its Blacks fourth book following two childrens books and the collection of humorous essays My Custom Van (sample essay: What I Would Be Thinking If I Were Billy Joel Driving to a Holiday Party Where I Knew There Was Going to Be a Piano). With Youre Not Doing It Right, Black wanted to pursue a more personal approach in tandem with his recent focus in stand-up. I was trying to figure out ways to expand myself creatively as opposed to just being the smug, smarmy a that Im familiar to most people as, says Black. It was feeling limiting, so I felt like I need to do more and open myself up a little more. Black is still striking out in different directions. This summer, hell release a political book with Meghan McCain, the blogger and daughter of Sen. John McCain, about driving across the country with her. Hes written a screenplay with Showalter and the two have further movie ideas, all of which he says could be mainstream comedies. Hell also be a part of a planned prequel/sequel to the cultishly adored film Wet Hot American Summer. In a career full of transitions, Youre Not Doing It Right is Blacks most personal turn yet. I dont know that Ive ever been happier, says Black. Its nice not knowing (whats next). Other than the panic, its nice.Laughing matters Todays birthday: There are strong indications that a bit more drama than usual is likely to come into your life in the year ahead. This could include some exciting, romantic episodes, impressive new friendships and a dynamic social calendar. Make the most of them. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) When you take on a leadership role it becomes you timidity doesnt. Dont be afraid or hesitant to assert yourself if and when conditions require you to do so. Aries (March 21-April 19) Although youre normally a very gregarious and outgoing person, you do have your withdrawn moments. Its likely to be one of those days. Taurus (April 20-May 20) As long as your hopes and expectations arent based on a selfish premise, things will have a way of working out quite well for you. Sometimes it pays to yield to your own inclinations. Gemini (May 21-June 20) If youre unobtrusive when going after a personal objective, things will work much better for you. Do what needs doing without using others to accomplish your aims. Cancer (June 21-July 22) By not taking yourself or life too seriously, it could turn out to be a productive day for you. As you go about your duties, treat life philosophically and roll with the punches. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Its an excellent time to get to the bottom of a matter of profound personal importance. Your abilities to probe, dig and detect are likely to be much sharper than usual. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When you find yourself able to bounce ideas off people whose intelligence you respect, it could be especially rewarding and enlightening. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Because the dull and the ordinary tend to turn you off, try to focus on creative or imaginative projects as much as you can. Youll be proud of the productive results you get. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your concern for the well being of others will be very apparent to everyone with whom youre involved. This facet of yours is what makes you so popular with your friends. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Nothing will give you more gratification than finishing what you start. It will be especially meaningful if its something that youve wanted to get to for a long time. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Try to do what Kipling suggested many years ago: dream, but dont make dreams your master; think, but dont make thoughts your aim. Use your mind for practical, productive purposes. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Interesting financial conditions surround you. Theres a chance you might sell something you dont possess, but have in inventory and can easily get your hands on.

Laura Story had six nominations and rapper LaCrae got five nods for the show, which has run for 43 consecutive years. The show will take place April 19 at the Fox Theatre. Kirk Franklin, Chris Tomlin, Natalie Grant and Jamie Grace each received four nominations. Franklin, who recently collected two Grammys and two NAACP Image Awards, hasnt won a Dove Award since 2007. Hell seek his first male vocalist of the year with Crabb, Christ August, Chris Tomlin and Steven Curtis Chapman. Franklin said he was surprised because he doesnt consider himself a singer. Hes known for talking during songs, leaving the singing to his choir. Its funny to me because I cant sing, said Franklin, whose album Hello Fear has sold more than 415,000 copies. These other guys in the category can really sing, he added. But Im thankful to be nominated in any category. Crabb will also compete for artist of the year against Casting Crowns, Story, LaCrae and The Issacs. One singer absent in the artist of the year category is Francesca Battistelli, who won the shows top award last year. She is looking for her third straight female vocalist of the year against Mandisa, Kari Jobe, Story and Grant who had previously won the award four years straight before Battistelli. Im still blown away to be named among some of the best in this industry, said Grant, who has won a total of four Dove Awards since she released her first album in 1999.

Tasting the food of an ancientFLAIRFORFOOD Section CTHURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012 INSIDEWines and SuchPAGE C2 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE JULIANNEMUNN Chronicle food writerts time once again to taste the flavors of the Greek isles at the annual St. Michael the Archangel Greek Festival starting today at the church in Lecanto off State Road 44. Embedded in Greek mythology, festivals historically date back to the celebration of Dionysus. The festival for Dionysus is in the spring when the leaves begin to reappear on the vine. It became one of the most important events of the year. Its focus became the theater. Most of the great Greek plays were initially written to be performed at the feast of Dionysus, according to www.greekmythology.com. One of the largest festivals in Citrus County, the bi-annual four-day event draws thousands of visitors eager to sample Greek dishes prepared by members of the church, take part in the traditional ethnic dances and songs and browse a stunning array of vendors displaying and selling Greek items. Jewelry, clothing, arts and crafts and religious items will be available in booths at the church. Greek heritage is part and parcel of festive occasions, the church website states, with a long history of festivals focused on or around a parishs patron saint and Hellenic history. Though the authentic Greek cuisine is one of the most popular aspects of the events, visitors also enjoy the traditional dances, said Bill Patides, one of hundreds of church members who help make the festival a success. More than 4,000 traditional dances come from all regions of Greece. Pan-Hellenic dances have been adopted throughout the Greek world, including the regional variations tsamikos, syrtos and kalamatianos. Patides said dancers will come from Greek communities in the Tarpon Springs and Clearwater areas to perform Friday and Saturday. Back again too, he noted, is George Kanaris, owner of Emilys Restaurant south of Homosassa. Kanaris will provide and rotisserie the lamb for gyros, souvlaki and other dishes. The dishes include a variety of indemand desserts, such as baklava (flaky honey-drenched pastry filled with crushed walnuts or pistachios), and many other toothsome treats. Members work months ahead of time to prepare these and other specialties such as moussaka and pastistio entres in the church kitchen. Kanaris is one of many members and businesses that help ensure the success of the festivals by donating food and time. If you dont have time to sit a spell and enjoy a meal, dinners may be taken home from YiaYias Kitchen. Thirsty? Patides said visitors will find plenty of traditional Greek beverages such as retsina wine (which some say is an acquired taste); ouzo, a spirit; and a variety of beer. You might also wish to purchase the churchs Greek Cookbook in order to prepare the same delicious dishes at home. Greek God Julianne MunnOVER EASY Good food from Greece Its all things Greek this weekend at St. Michael the Archangel Church in Lecanto. Kudos to members of the church for their hard work over the years in making this one of the largest festivals in Citrus County. Until a few years ago, the Greek Festival was once a year. But now its double the fun with a second event in the spring. On top of that, seafood suppers such as fried fish and calamari are offered at the church on Fridays throughout the year. You can eat in or carry out. Here is one of my favorite Greek salads: GREEK COUNTRY SALAD4 radishes 1 red onion, cut into rings 1 or 2 tomatoes, cut into wedges 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled 1 teaspoon sea salt1 clove garlic 8 kalamata olives5 anchovy fillets 1 tablespoon Greek oregano2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1/2 cup olive oilCut radishes, onions and tomatoes. Add some salt into a bowl. Crush garlic clove and rub into bowl. Add vegetables, cheese, salt, olives, anchovies and oregano. Sprinkle with lemon juice, salt, pepper and oil. Toss. Add more lemon juice and oil to taste. (I use a large cucumber cut into chunks instead of radishes). Great-granddaughter Julia Belle was in town last Saturday. We spent some time visiting Ozello, where the 8-year-old was fascinated with the blue crab farm at Pecks Old Port Cove. After the crabs shed their shells, they are fried until crispy and brown for the popular soft-shelled crab dinners. No pickin, just good eatin. From there, we drove out County Road 495 to the Register Cracker Farm, where my little namesake had a ball picking a bucket full of strawberries from the hydroponically grown plants. About 2 p.m. it was time for her to head home with some stories to tell at school about a few hours of fun in old Florida. February means Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and you might want to recognize the festival with a hearty gumbo: CHICKEN AND ANDOUILLE GUMBO1 (4to 5-pound) chicken, cut into serving pieces1/2 teaspoon salt1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper1 cup vegetable oil1 cup all-purpose flour2 cups chopped onion See EASY/ Page C2 ChronicleWhile Valentines Day is the main holiday focus of February, two Chroniclestaffers decided to delve into Internet recipes with a patriotic flair for Presidents Day.

And while each person had his or her favorite, the overwhelming choice among 17 Chroniclestaffers was the Berry Cheesecake Pie.

However, to make the gumbo easier to eat, you may wish to cut the meat from the bone.) Add sausage and cook for 30 minutes. Add and adjust seasonings to taste. Add green onions and parsley and serve immediately with steamed rice. EASYContinued from Page C1 Patides said funds raised by the festivals are used for various church projects and programs throughout the year. More than 3,200 visitors attended the fall Greek festival, and a larger turnout is expected this weekend, he added. The festivities are inside and outside the church at 4705 State Road 44, Lecanto. Hours are from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission is a $1 donation. Here are some typical dishes that might be found at the Greek festivals.

Roll dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Shape each into a 6-inch rope; fold in half and twist twice. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. In a small bowl, beat the remaining eggs; brush over dough. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks. It makes about 6 1/2 dozen.

I loved the brownies because I love chocolate. Love the cheesy goodness and the tartness of the berries. Yummy, but I like a stronger cheesecake flavor. Felt more like cheescake. It never fails. At least once during the wine events I conduct, someone asks, Do you have any sweet wines at your table? About 80 percent of the time, I am forced to reply, Sorry not this evening. I reckon most of these good people are likely enjoying their first wine tasting and have not developed a palette for 90 percent of the worlds wine selections, the majority of which are considered dry. The wine lexicon does not accept the word sour as the reverse of sweet because this designation quite naturally will turn people away. Who wants to drink sour anything? Hence the term dry. Sweet wine is one containing unfermented or residual sugar. With great dessert wines from France such as Sauternes, or the Beerenauslese of Germany, the sugar must come by law from natural grape sugars present at the time of harvest. Gentle readers, please understand todays many pop wines achieve their appeal by adding a sweetening agent after fermentation. There are scads of somewhat sweet wines from Australia (Traminer-Riesling), California (Chenin Blanc) and Germany (Riesling). The method used to achieve sweetness is to halt fermentation before all the naturally present grape sugars have been converted into alcohol. Remember the basic formula for fermentation: Yeast plus sugar equals alcohol plus carbon dioxide. So grapes with an abundance of natural sugar will become even sweeter through the intervention of a winemaker. It is this class of sweet wines I want to address. Lets forget for now about dessert wines which, by virtue of scarcity and laborintensive manufacture, are expensive and, for most, not meant really for daily sipping. For reasons I have not been able to understand, it seems most American wine consumers are turned off by the idea of drinking sweeter-style white wines. Lets look at one of these semi-sweet or semi-dry wines, if you prefer labels which do make for really good drinking regardless of the food match. We start with a country and a grape likely never heard about nor explored. That is an Austrian (not Australian) grape called Grner Veltliner (groo-ner felt-lih-ner). It is Austrias most widely planted variety, some with a pale green tint, crisp, slightly spicy and always wines of the highest quality. The once-obscure grape has risen in reputation in the past 10 years for several reasons: The wines are well made and never flabby or overtly simple. Grner Veltliner is truly food-friendly. Some regard it as a cross between Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, a happy cross indeed. One critic described the finish (swallow) as a subtle rush of white pepper. In Austria, a favorite dish is Wiener schnitzel, veal cutlets coated with bread crumbs and sauted (I love it). Crisp and tender, try some of this wine with fried chicken. It works like a charm and is a yummy combination. Alas, having said all this, it is discomforting to admit that, locally, I have found but one lonely single Grner Veltliner. It is Hopler 2009, priced at $13 and very nice, too. The answer, if anyone wishes to discover this new varietal, is to go online and search away. Dozens in every price range will appear. Readers may explore the offerings (some shipping free) to their hearts content. The answer to last weeks trivia question What is a blind tasting? is the people tasting and at times the exhibitors (double blind) do not know the identity of the wines origin, nor the price range. This kind of session will not influence opinions and lay scoring strictly on participants senses.Oak Ridge resident Ron Drinkhouse was a buyer and seller of wines in his native Connecticut.

Repeat seven times; trim edges. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Bake at 425 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. (Center will puff up). Cool on a wire rack. For filling, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Fold in blueberries. Spoon into crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes; cover edges with foil to prevent overbrowning. Bake 23 to 27 minutes longer or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate until chilled. In a small bowl, beat jelly until smooth; spread over filling. Spread with whipped topping. Garnish with strawberries and additional blueberries if desired. Editors note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter. It take about 20 minutes for prep and 35 minutes to bake, plus chilling.

C4THURSDAY, FEBRUARY23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Just as I was sitting at my desk, preparing to write this column, a sudden squall started outside. A westerly wind picked up to, Im guessing, 40 mph, and the rain came down in sheets. Luckily our vegetation is made to handle this, sometimes having to survive hurricane-force winds during the summer months. After 10 minutes or so, the wind died down again and the rain stopped. At the bridge table, you might walk into an unexpected storm: a bad trump break. In this deal, how should South play in six hearts when East shows up with all five outstanding trumps? West leads the diamond queen. Declarer wins with dummys ace and plays a heart to his jack, West discarding a diamond. Norths two-no-trump response would not meet with universal approval, but it had the huge advantage of telling South it was a slam deal, which two diamonds waiting would not have done. (Two aces opposite an unbalanced two-club opening equals a slam if a fit is found.) Since South has a club loser, he has to draw trumps without loss. But that requires taking two more finesses through East. How can declarer get to the board two more times? At trick three, South must lead a low spade to dummys 10. When the finesse wins (the sun is finally out), he takes a second heart finesse. South returns to dummy with a spade, finesses for a third time in trumps, cashes his top hearts, and claims 12 tricks: four spades, five hearts, one diamond and two clubs.

We get along great except for one thing: her cats. Renee was born with no sense of smell. Shes normally very organized except when it comes to the animals. She forgets to clean the litterbox because she cant smell it, so I have to remind her constantly. The odor can become so unbearable I no longer allow my friends inside. Also, her cats play with their food trays and water dishes and knock everything onto the floor. She never cleans it up. I had to confront her about this because it was attracting bugs. And when the cats throw up, Im the one who ends up cleaning it because I know she wont do it. It is absolutely disgusting. I dont like being confrontational, and Renee is very argumentative. Anytime Ive tried to address this, it falls on deaf ears. Ive managed to survive this long as her roommate, so right now I am simply biding my time until I can move out. However, Renee recently commented she doesnt want me to leave when our lease is up. I wouldnt mind living with her again if she would give up her cats, but I know that isnt going to happen, and Id feel guilty asking her. Renee and I have the same circle of friends, so if I ask around about a new roommate, shell hear, and it would hurt her feelings. I dont want to ruin our friendship, because she truly is a good person and an amazing friend. I just want out of kitty hell. Always Holding My Nose Dear Nose: You have nothing to lose by telling Renee she must take better care of the cats or you are moving out. She can clean the litterbox at regular intervals, whether she smells it or not. And anything that lands on the floor is visible to both of you. She may be an amazing friend, but she is a lousy roommate. Dear Annie: How can I get my husband and his sister to stop scratching and picking at their heads and ears? Its disgusting and looks terrible. They do it at work, too, and its so unprofessional. Tired of Picking Dear Tired: First ask your husband to see his doctor or dermatologist to find out whether he has a scalp condition. If so, there is likely treatment that will alleviate the problem, and it might help your sister-in-law. Otherwise, it would seem to be an ingrained family habit. That means it will be hard to shake, especially if one is unwilling to address it. You have no say over his sisters bad habits, but explain to your husband how off-putting this is, and ask whether hed be willing to work on it. Because he is undoubtedly unaware hes scratching and picking, your job will be to point it out, nicely, every single time you catch him. Dear Annie: I didnt care for your tolerant response to Sad Mom, who paid her son, Mark, $400 to essentially destroy their bathroom. She said he is stubborn and immature and refuses to take advice from anyone. She has reached out to him for more than two years with no response. A good, long shunning should do the trick. If he never comes around, its his loss. If his sister wants to be with her brother so badly, she should call him up and invite him to her place. My husband and I are the parents of a son who means everything to us, but we did not raise him to think the world owes him a living. Mark is ungrateful, and his siblings need to support their parents. Tired of Nasty Children in Wyoming Dear Wyoming: Difficult children are just that and do not always respond in a logical way. Parents must deal with them carefully if they want to maintain any kind of relationship.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

bles right outside your door. Edible landscaping will allow you to create a multi-functional landscape that provides returns (herbs, fruits, vegetables and others) on your investment of water, fertilizer and time. This approach to landscaping may also help you add fresh, healthy foods to your diet and make meal preparation easier. Without the backbone of an integrated design, your edible landscape can be reduced to just another scraggly vegetable patch, so be sure to spend time on the front end. Temper your garden enthusiasm with the knowledge that many edible plants need maintenance and time to harvest, cook, and depending on the size of your harvest, preserve. When getting started with any edible landscape, keep it simple and begin small. Small and lean means you can easily maintain what youve started. Correct placement of new plants is an important consideration since most edible plants need at least six hours of mid-day sun to thrive and produce well. Another important consideration is that annual fruits and vegetables will do best when grown in soil that has good drainage and an abundance of organic matter. Try adding compost to your planting beds this spring. Plant selection is another important factor in ensuring success. Warm season vegetables such as beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, southern peas, peppers, okra, summer and crookneck squashes can all be planted in spring. Carrots and radishes can be planted through March. For starters, consider integrating peppers with a striking backdrop of tall red salvias. Spring is also an ideal time to consider incorporating herbs in your landscapes. Many varieties of herbs make beautiful ground covers when incorporated in an existing landscape. This time of year consider planting anise, basil, sweet basil, borage, cardamom, chervil, coriander, cumin, horehound, lemon balm, lovage, marjoram, mint, oregano, rosemary, sage, summer savory or thyme. Try planting a mixed border of culinary herbs in front of an existing hedge. Many fruit trees easily integrate into a landscape and function in multiple ways as shade and/or flowering trees as well as edibles. Smaller fruiting plants can substitute as shrubbery. Try using a selection of citrus for example, as a screen along a private patio. If space is limited, choose dwarf fruit trees over standard-size trees and select fruit varieties. For those who enjoy the fragrance of spring blossoms and better yet the harvested of tasty fruit, consider growing loquats, peaches, plum, persimmon and blueberries. Edible landscaping made simple Hang pots of herbs on the patio Locate cherry tomatoes in a window box or hanging basket Build a grape arbor Plant colorful pepper varieties alongside flowering annuals Tuck radishes or other short-lived greens into a flowerbed Plant basil together with coleus in a planter Grow chives around the mailbox Growing your own vegetables, fruits and herbs can be rewarding and fun, and the exercise you get in the process can help you stay fit. In an urban environment edible landscaping provides more benefits than just food. Edible landscaping is another component of urban agriculture. Homegrown food is considered by some to be more nutritious than much of the commercially produced food, and growing food locally saves the energy needed to ship it long distances.

G16Thursday, February 23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME GARDENContinued from Page 15 March gardening tipsWhat to Plant:Annuals: Replace declining winter annuals with varieties that will provide color now and into the summer months, such as celosia, coleus, and impatiens. Bulbs: Plant caladiums for a showy tropical display all summer. Herbs: In addition to their culinary value, many herbs are ornamental and attract butterflies to the garden. Vegetables: If not already started, warm season crops (beans, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and squash) should be planted now for late spring harvest.What to Do:Azaleas: If azaleas need hard pruning to shape or produce a fuller plant, prune just after plants finish blooming. Prune spring flowering trees and shrubs after blooming: To guard next seasons blooms, begin pruning after the last flowers fade but before new buds set. Fertilize lawns: Apply a complete fertilizer to lawns after all danger of frost is past since fertilizing too early can damage the lawn. Prune shrubs and trees when new growth begins: The end of the dormant season is a good time to prune many trees and shrubs. Fertilize palms, azaleas, camellias and ornamental shrubs: Choose a fertilizer based on each plants needs. Irrigation: Now that dry weather is here, check sprinkler systems for efficient use of water.

Cant wait to get your sleeves rolled up and launch into spring gardening? This season put your landscape to work by creating an edible landscape. Quite simply, edible landscaping is the practical integration of plants that can be consumed within an ornamental or decorative setting around the home. This type of landscaping selectively replaces ornamental plants in the landscape with plants that produce food. An edible landscape can be just as attractive as a traditional one.

Could we talk? I love animals. I dont live with any right now, but I have had some very good animal friends in the past. Both my sons and husband will tell you that we had the smartest dogs that ever existed Lacey and Charlie Brown were the best. Im sure that I told you about the time my young sons and I helped our neighbor by burying her dear departed cat. We helped all right. You might recall that in the process we actually dug up her telephone line. Im sure that my sons will let me know that Im using the term we very loosely. Actually, I sort of dug up her phone cable. I guess Im not much help in an animal crisis. Animals are very interesting, dont you think? They are way smarter than we give them credit for. For instance, we knew a man who lived in Yankeetown years ago who owned a dog that would go anywhere with him any time. All his owner had to do was yell out, load up and the dog would jump into his truck. However, there was one exception to this behavior. If the man had too much to drink or the dog even observed him having one or two drinks, it would not get in any vehicle with him. I witnessed this on several occasions. The man would cajole, coax, promise food, try anything to get this dog to go with him, but I promise you that dog would not buy it. Pretty smart, huh? Apparently, the dog wanted a designated driver. Then there was the dog I read about recently who shot his owners friend who lived next door. No, really. The dog shot the neighbor with a shotgun. It seems that his owner, the neighbor and the dog went fishing. It was during duck season so they also took a shotgun with them. Somehow the dog stepped on the trigger and, well, the neighbor wound up with a butt load of buckshot. Accident? I think not. Just try and remember this story the next time you let a dog have access to a loaded weapon! Recently I saw on TV (watching the tube again) the documentary that a man filmed who wanted to live with the bears in Alaska and become one with them. Yes, he filmed the documentary. However, he wasnt able to film the ending. Why, you ask? Well maybe because he literally became part of the bear. The bear did something that is not totally out of character for a wild animal (bears in particular). Lets see, what did the bear do? It ate him. Unfortunately, the gentleman dragged his girlfriend into the wild to help with his animal observation mission, so the bear ate her also. It is unfortunate, but very predictable that hisCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, February 23, 2012 G3 OURTIME G14Thursday, February 23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME Sign Language ClassesInstructor for all classes is Sue Paulus. $35 for eight weeks.

EVENTSContinued from Page 13 Special to the ChronicleArt teacher Holly Fisher works recently at East Citrus Community Center with a student, May Glendon. Some animal observations Mary Alice TillmanLETS TALK see Talk Page 5 Dwight Dicks, our homeowners association president, announced at Friday Morning Coffee that since the clubhouse fire there wont be any more dances until the clubhouse has been rebuilt. Speaking of the clubhouse, management says the contractor is complaining about too many sidewalk superintendents that are interfering with the removal of debris. Residents complain that the contractor keeps moving the yellow caution tape further and further from the work site. The contractors complain that the residents keep moving it back. The resident porch dwellers, otherwise known as the Jury, have come up with another one of their famous ideas. In order to make it easier for the residents to keep tabs on the construction they suggested renting bleachers and charging admission. The plan was going as planned until the contractors refused to pay admission. The sheriffs department sent a representative to one of the coffees to discuss phantom drivers. This is different from the phantom cars often found, but never seen at red light traffic signals when the spaces between cars is mysteriously filled with invisible ones. Phantom drivers have become more noticeable since more and more seniors are moving to Florida. As seen from behind it appears that no one is driving the car since all that shows through the rear window is headrests. Occasionally hands can be seen moving the steering wheel. This freaks out other drivers and the sheriffs department has received numerous complaints, so the department is looking into the matter.

Nationwide, one in five Medicare patients is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. Locally, the percentage is much better. At Seven Rivers Regional, we average one in 10. Last year, health care reform was implemented to reduce readmission rates, which cost the health care system billions. The new plan has great potential for improving patient care and saving money. But it will take more than hospitals revamping their policies and procedures. Change of this magnitude requires a team effort between health care professionals and patients. Doctors and clinicians continue to develop advanced care plans and improve communication. Patients are encouraged to ask more questions and get the resources they need to make responsible decisions about their treatment and care. You can help, too. The next time you or someone you know is in the hospital, think about the following: Know what you say; say what you know. Communication is the most important tool you have as a patient. Talk to your doctor. Have your nurse explain your treatment plan. Share your progress with your family. Listen carefully. Ask questions. Repeat instructions back for clarity. And be honest about what you think and feel. Prevent medication mix-ups. Medication problems are a leading cause of readmissions. Doctors need to know about all of your medications (prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins and supplements). The easiest way to share this information is to carry a list in your handbag or wallet. The list needs to include the name of the medicine, the dose and how often it is taken. At the hospital, new medicines may be prescribed. Make sure you get clear written and verbal instructions on what to take, what not to take and when and how to take medicines. If you recognize conflicting information, insist on clarification. Keep your medical appointments. According to research by Stephen Jencks, M.D, published in 2009 in the New England Journal of Medicine, half of patients who returned to the hospital within 30 days did not have a bill for a visit to a doctors office between the time of discharge and re-admission. Many times, a follow-up appointment with your doctor is scheduled while you are in the hospital, or you are asked to make an appointment soon after discharge. Keeping appointments is your responsibility; a very important responsibility. Be honest about your ability to make follow-up appointments while you are in the hospital. Before you are discharged, a resource manager will sit down and talk to you about your concerns. This is the perfect time to address any caregiver or transportation issues that may prevent you from keeping appointments or picking up medications on time.

Someone asked if using a pillow would help, but before the deputy could answer someone else wanted to know if she could sit on her husbands lap while driving. The discussion went on as those who wanted to contribute, well, contributed, until someone noticed that the deputy had left. A group of ladies volunteered to make covers to fit over the headrests so that it would appear that someone taller was driving the car. This idea was quickly put to a vote before everyone forgot what they were voting for. The Ladies Luncheon Club spent a week in Tampa attending an orchid show. This, in itself was nice. However, a repeat of last years incidents may cancel future trips unless the ladies can somehow control their husbands while theyre gone. One person in particular you know who you are outdid himself while shopping at the locale grocery store by putting expensive things into a womans shopping cart. As if this wasnt bad enough, he went home with her. Fortunately, her husband didnt press charges. The same individual explained to the deputy that he thought he recognized someone in the store and got confused when he couldnt remember who it was until someone pointed out that he was looking at a mirror. They bought it this time, Vern. When the other husbands were interviewed about their wives leaving them alone for a week, some responded that this was the only way they could eat what they wanted without being told it wasnt good for them. One thing in common among all of the husbands was that none of them did their own cooking. When asked if they were afraid to use the stove, nearly all replied, Whats a stove? Those of you who hosted the Super Bowl Parties in their homes all had a great time. That is except for the ones who forgot to inform their wives. This might explain why all of those clothes were dumped on the front lawns and carports. The manager from the local bank has closed the drive-through lanes until the cash canisters are returned. He said leaving them at the drive-through pharmacies doesnt count. Until next month, stay healthy. TALKContinued from Page 3 By Beverley BakerSpecial to the ChronicleThirty days hath September, April, June and November. These lines are as familiar to most of us as the A,B,Cs. There are a number of versions of the rest of the poem, such as: Of twenty-eight there is but one, All the rest have thirty-one. or Save February, with twenty-eight days clear And twenty-nine in each leap year. or Leap year coming once in four. February then has one day more. Why do we have leap years? The Gregorian calendar now serves as the standard calendar throughout the world. The Gregorian calendar is closely based on the Julian calendar, introduced by Julius Caesar in 45 B.C. A leap year occurs every four years to help synchronize the calendar year with the solar year by adding an intercalary day, which is the day we insert and leap one day forward. Thus, we will add an extra day, Feb. 29, making 2012 a leap year. How many people do you know who were born on Feb 29? I can only think of two, other than myself, plus the boy, Freddie, who was born a few hours before me in Orillia, Ontario, on Feb. 29, 1932. Being first, he received the lions share of the gifts donated by local businesses to celebrate the event. These gifts were coupons for free milk, baby food (Pablum) and baby clothes. Disposable diapers had not yet been invented! I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth but, thanks to one of the merchants, I did receive a silver baby cup to hold in my hand. It even had my name engraved on it. That was the one lasting gift and I still have it among my treasures. Being a leap year baby was something of a hardship to a small child. Birthday parties were few and far between. I do remember the parties at 4, 8, 12 and 16. Then my childhood was over and birthdays became less important. What a long time it seemed between birthdays then and what a short time it seems as I grow older! People ask a lot of questions when they find out that you are a leap year baby. What day do you celebrate in non-leap years? To which I answer, whatever day is most convenient the last day of February or the day after the 28th or not at all. How old are you really? And they come up with the wildest guesses. They dont know whether to divide or multiply by four, which would make me 320 years old this year. Move over, Methuselah! I dont know whether or not the merchants of today offer gifts to leap year babies. I do know that the best gift for me is spending time with my family. I hope it will be a day to remember. And Happy birthday, Freddie, wherever you are. Beverley Baker is a Canadian snowbird who has spent the past 14 winters in Crystal River, enjoying the climate and the friendly community.

fiber carbohydrates for greater health benefits. Whole grains provide greater nutrients than refined ones and high-fiber foods, such as beans, help with glucose response, says Amanda Kirpitch, registered dietitian at Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston. If youre eating more fiber-rich foods, youll also feel full and eat less, Kirpitch says. Visualizing a plate may help with carbohydrate planning, Kirpitch says, and she suggests you imagine half your plate with vegetables, a quarter with protein and a quarter with starch. Select foods that are low in fat and sodium in keeping with new guidelines. Saturated fat, which may increase your LDL cholesterol levels, should be less than 7 percent of your daily caloric intake, according to Smithson, founder of www. diabeteseveryday.com. (Minimize your intake of trans fats as well, say diabetes experts.) Sodium limits have been revised downward to 1,500 milligrams a day if you have diabetes, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. To control your sodium intake, eat fewer processed foods and more fresh fruits and vegetables, says Kirpitch, a certified diabetes educator. Anything that comes in a box or can is more likely to be high in sodium, Kirpitch says.

That is why they are called wild. Let me just say here that there are people who work with wild animals professionally. They perform very valuable research and guess what? They know what they are doing. Its their job. But even those professionals, with all of the precautions, are in danger. So what would make an amateur think for one minute that they could live on the wild side? It wasnt necessary to tell me not to try this at home. Now, I know that I was raised in the country and all that, but most of you know that wild animals are supposed to stay wild, right? I mean, even as a small child I knew better than to play with snakes (ewe! Snakes, dont even get me started on them) or any other, and here is the key word, wild animal. I moved to the river some 13 years ago and I made a deal with the alligators. They stay on their side of the river and I stay on mine. From time to time they can be observed, but Ive never once had the inclination to feed them, swim with them, or even get close enough to talk to them. Call me rude, but I discourage any kind of interaction. Now I hear that the orca whales are suing Sea World for enslavement. No, Im not making that up. Really, they are. Can you believe that? I would say in this case the animals are way smarter than the humans. I would hate to be the person that had to complete the court documents. How in the world (Sea World I guess no pun intended) could you write up that case to bring before the judge and what judge could preside with a straight face? Heres the thing about wild animals. It isnt like we can all sit around the table and listen to them give one of those Cant we all just get along speeches. Nope. There is no room for negotiating. Sooner or later they will eat you. Usually sooner! So my tip of the month is, dont give them a chance (to eat you, that is) and, oh yeah, dont give a dog a loaded weapon. Talk to you later ... Remember, laughter is the best medicine. TALKContinued from Page 3 Resources for job-hunting seniorsDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good resources to help job-hunting seniors? Im 60 years old and have been out of work for nearly six months now and need some help. What can you tell me? Seeking Employment Dear Seeking, The tough employment market over the past few years has been particularly hard on people over the age of 55. Fortunately, there are a number of online tools and in-person training centers scattered across the country today that can help. Heres what you should know. In-person help A good first step to get help finding a job is at a Career OneStop center. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, these are free job resource centers that can help you explore career options, search for jobs, find training, write a resume, prepare for an interview and much more. There are around 3,000 of these centers located throughout the country. To find one near you, call 877-348-0502 or go to careeronestop.org. Depending on your financial situation, another program that may help is the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). Also sponsored by the Department of Labor, SCSEP offers access to training and parttime job placements in a wide variety of community service positions such as day care centers, senior centers, governmental agencies, schools, hospitals, libraries and landscaping centers. To qualify, participants must be over 55, unemployed and earning less than 125 percent of the federal poverty level $13,600 a year. Unfortunately, 2011 federal budget cuts have significantly reduced this program funding, but its still a viable option. To learn more or locate a program in your area visit www.doleta.gov/seniors or call 877-872-5627. In addition to the national resources, some states, communities and local nonprofit organizations may offer their own senior employment programs. For example, in certain areas in Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Washington state and Wisconsin there are Aging Worker Initiative programs to help local job seekers 55 and older. To find out if your community offers any locally based senior employment programs, contact the Area Agency on Aging call 800-6771116 or see www.eldercare.gov to get your local number. AARP WorkSearch Another resource that offers free job help is the AARP Foundation WorkSearch Virtual Job Coach program. This is a volunteer-run program that helps any job-seeker (you dont need to be an AARP member), age 40 and older, by connecting you with a trained volunteer to help you search for jobs and get training. Call 877-659-0969 or visit aarp worksearch.org to find help. In addition, AARP also offers a jobs search engine that you can access at jobs.aarp.org. Or, if you want in-person assistance, AARP has 23 WorkSearch facilities around the country that provide free face-to-face help. To search for a facility, contact your state AARP office. See aarp.org /states or call 888-687-2277 for contact information. Online Resources Theres also a wide array of online employment networks that can help you connect with companies that are interested in hiring older workers. One of the best is retirementjobs.com, which offers a job search engine that lists more than 30,000 jobs nationwide from companies that are actively seeking workers over the age of 50. It also provides job-seeking tips and advice, helps with resume writing and allows you to post your resume online for companies to find you. Some other 50-plus job seeking sites worth a look are seniors4hire.com, workforce50 .com, retiredbrains.com, retireeworkforce.com, wiser worker.com, seniorjobbank.com, enrge.us (a site devoted to retired government employees) and yourencore.com (an online recruitment firm that connects retired scientists, developers and engineers with companies that offer consulting). Start a Business If youre interested in starting a small business but could use some help getting started, turn to the U.S. Small Business Administration which offers tips, tools and free online courses that you can access at sba.gov. Also see score.org a nonprofit association that provides free business advice for entrepreneurs. Jim MillerSAVVY SENIOR DIABETESContinued from Page 10GO NUTS Nuts can be a delicious, convenient and a healthful addition to your meal plan, say diabetes experts. Substituting 475 calories worth of mixed nuts (about 21/2 ounces) for the same calories in muffins improved glycemic control and LDL cholesterol levels in volunteers with type 2 diabetes in a study in Canada that was recently published in Diabetes Care. I include nuts with my meals, says Toby Smithson, certified diabetes educator. The calorie part adds up, but I replace other ingredients with nuts. Nuts have a pretty high satiety level and a little protein helps you feel full longer.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, February 23, 2012 G11 OURTIME G6Thursday, February 23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME Type 2 diabetes has few age barriersThe disease, which used to develop in older adults, is striking at an earlier age, according to Laurie Higgins, registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator, Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston. Im definitely seeing type 2 diabetes in younger people, says Higgins. Statistics confirm that. During 2002 to 2005, 3,600 youths were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes annually, according to the National Institutes of Health. Receiving a diabetes diagnosis doesnt mean you have to give up your social life. You can still go out on a dinner date, celebrate important occasions with family and even enjoy a resort vacation. Its all about healthy eating, just as it is for the general population, Higgins says. The same techniques that work for anyone trying to eat more nutritiously will help you manage your type 2 diabetes. Here are tips for various situations:Dining out If possible, look at the restaurant menu in advance. Ask for soup or salad while youre waiting for the entre; move the breadbasket to the end of the table, out of your reach. Starchy items, such as rice, pasta and fries, come in very generous portion sizes; share these foods with friends, says Higgins, who works with adolescents and young adults. You can have a drink, preferably with food. It will depend on your medications and how well youre managing your diabetes, Higgins says.Dining inYour relatives probably know and will accommodate your diet needs. But if youre in a new situation, you can always call and ask whats being served and offer to bring a dish or two. If your hosts tend to linger over appetizers bring a healthy snack to tide you over until mealtime.VacationsYou cant be assured of having the food you want, even at a swank resort, but if youre counting carbohydrates, you can stay within your carb budget, according to dietitian Toby Smithson. Maybe you usually have oatmeal, yogurt and fruit for breakfast but the menu doesnt include yogurt. You can switch to two servings of oatmeal or two servings of fruit and one of oatmeal, says Smithson.Having a life when you have diabetes 000AJP7 Did you know that benefits are available to Veterans, Spouses and their Widows for Assisted Living?

For more information visit www.frrm.org Day trip destinations Railroads first came to Florida in the 1860s with a line running from Fernandina Beach to Cedar Key. However, real development arrived after the Civil War with lines eventually becoming of Henry Flaglers Florida East Coast Railroad and Henry Plants Plant System. Later, the Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Air Line railroads built their tracks through Central Florida to the Gulf Coast. In the panhandle, Seaboard built a line west from Jacksonville to River Junction in Chattahoochee where it connected with the Louisville & Nashville Railroad west through Pensacola into Alabama. Also, the Southern Railway System pushed south from Valdosta, Georgia into Jacksonville. Since the Florida Railroad Museum is located in the Gulf Coast area, it focuses on the Plant System and Seaboard Air Line in that region. Henry Plant took over the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railroad and expanded into Tampa to connect with his steamship lines running to Cuba and other destinations. He also built hotels and key locations along this line in the 1890s. In 1900, Henry Plant died and his railroad interests were soon purchased by the Atlantic Coast Line, along with several other acquisitions in Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia. The Atlantic Coast Line made Tampa its major destination on the West Coast with maintenance shops, yards and shipping facilities located there. The ACL Florida main line ran from Jacksonville to Tampa via Orlando, Lakeland and Plant City. The Seaboard Air Line, based in Richmond, Va., was a competitor of the ACL and came to Tampa in 1902, running tracks through Ocala and Plant City before turning west toward Tampa. Seaboard began building branch lines just after the turn of the century to St. Petersburg, Bradenton, Sarasota and Venice. Both railroads also absorbed several short lines until their tracks intertwined throughout this region and laid the groundwork for their eventual merger in 1967, forming the Seaboard Coast Line.

That would have been the dietary equivalent of throwing down the gauntlet a few years ago. No more. We no longer have a list of things you have to leave out of your diet, says Ross, registered dietitian and vice president of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. Instead the new message is all foods can fit, says Toby Smithson, registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. But that doesnt give you license to ignore good nutrition. In fact, youll enjoy more choices if you become aware of the nutritional value of what youre eating, while you also reduce your intake of sodium and solid fat to meet new recommendations. Working with your physician and a certified diabetes educator, youll learn the appropriate daily carbohydrate allotment thats right for you. Carbohydrate counting, which is simply calculating the grams of carbohydrates you consume during the day, is one way to stay within your recommended limit. Take that mini chocolate doughnut. You can fit it in. If you know how many grams of carbohydrates the doughnut contains, you can work with your diabetes care professional to include it instead of another carbohydrate as an occasional treat.

Barb Harmon has given plenty of her time and has been nominated for the Nature Coast Volunteer Centers Retired and Senior Volunteer Program Presidential Service Award. She is one of five volunteers who have logged more than 4,000 lifetime hours. She focuses her volunteer hours on advocating for the older residents of Citrus County. I have a love for the elderly, she said. I mean we have a county full of them. Harmon made a trip to the Citrus County Family Resource Center in 2010. Although she praised the center for the valuable service they provide for the community, she felt the elderly people in the community were being left out, and it triggered something in her. I saw homeless people being fed a hot meal, she said. And yet there was a group of seniors who werent being fed because there was no money. Our homeless can get a meal easier than our elderly. At that moment is when God spoke to me and said the gift shop had to happen. In 2010 she started the Circle of Friends Gifts, a gift shop at the Central Citrus Resource Center in Lecanto, where all money earned goes to help support the countys home-delivered meals program. She said the countys older population is growing, the cost of meals is going up, but federal grant money stays the same. There were 68 elderly people on the countys home-delivered meals waiting list at last count, she said. And what do you got, she said. Youve got a problem. Harmon has a full schedule when it comes to volunteering to solve the problems of the countys elderly. She volunteers at the gift shop every Friday, and whenever Im needed and thats a lot, she said. She founded CARE (Citizens Accelerated Response to Emergencies) in 2010. It was first funded by a grant from the Citrus County Senior Foundation as emergency, one-time aid for people who are 60 or older and are in need of assistance with utilities, medicine or food. She is one of a few CAREvolunteers that alternate carrying a cell phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They take calls from police, firefighters or qualified professionals who find people in a crisis situation. On Tuesdays she volunteers on the Seniors vs. Crime desk in Beverly Plaza in Beverly Hills. The program is a project sponsored by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and the Florida Attorney Generals Office to assist people of all ages who feel they have been a victim of a scam or unfair business deal. She mans the phones fielding calls and sorting out complaints and problems to determine if they are civil or criminal. She has worked there since its inception in July 2002. As I told her, she doesnt have enough room on her plate for salt and pepper, said Don Moran, senior affairs coordinator for the sheriffs office and Seniors vs.. Crime director. Every other Wednesday she volunteers as a mediator in Citrus Countys civil and small claims court for Judge Mark Yerman. She earned her mediation certification from the Supreme Court of Florida and has given her time in Citrus courts since 2004. She has served on the board of directors for the Friends of the Community Centers since 2006, and she is also treasurer for the organization. The Friends is an advisory group of caring volunteers aimed at improving and advancing the conditions of our county community centers. The Friends group also runs the gift shop. In addition, each Monday she finds time to teach a greeting card-making class at the Central Citrus Senior Center. Ive been very blessed, she added. And I feel like this is a way of giving back. Laurie Diestler, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) project coordinator, said its wonderful to have volunteers who are so dedicated. She said the other four award recipients are: Betty Lewis, Mary Mudd, Sharon Padgett and Casimir Wyzgowski. I think what drives her (Harmon) and the other volunteers, they know that they are making a difference in someones life, Diestler said. They give without expecting anything. Thats what makes the volunteer group work. Diestler said people volunteer for various reasons. A lot (volunteer) to keep active, to keep connected to the community or for the satisfaction of helping someone else, she said. The RSVP program was started in Citrus County in 1989 to provide volunteer opportunities for people 55 and older who have a variety of knowledge, experience and interests from all economic, social and educational backgrounds.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, February 23, 2012 G11 OURTIME G6Thursday, February 23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME Type 2 diabetes has few age barriersThe disease, which used to develop in older adults, is striking at an earlier age, according to Laurie Higgins, registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator, Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston. Im definitely seeing type 2 diabetes in younger people, says Higgins. Statistics confirm that. During 2002 to 2005, 3,600 youths were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes annually, according to the National Institutes of Health. Receiving a diabetes diagnosis doesnt mean you have to give up your social life. You can still go out on a dinner date, celebrate important occasions with family and even enjoy a resort vacation. Its all about healthy eating, just as it is for the general population, Higgins says. The same techniques that work for anyone trying to eat more nutritiously will help you manage your type 2 diabetes. Here are tips for various situations:Dining out If possible, look at the restaurant menu in advance. Ask for soup or salad while youre waiting for the entre; move the breadbasket to the end of the table, out of your reach. Starchy items, such as rice, pasta and fries, come in very generous portion sizes; share these foods with friends, says Higgins, who works with adolescents and young adults. You can have a drink, preferably with food. It will depend on your medications and how well youre managing your diabetes, Higgins says.Dining inYour relatives probably know and will accommodate your diet needs. But if youre in a new situation, you can always call and ask whats being served and offer to bring a dish or two. If your hosts tend to linger over appetizers bring a healthy snack to tide you over until mealtime.VacationsYou cant be assured of having the food you want, even at a swank resort, but if youre counting carbohydrates, you can stay within your carb budget, according to dietitian Toby Smithson. Maybe you usually have oatmeal, yogurt and fruit for breakfast but the menu doesnt include yogurt. You can switch to two servings of oatmeal or two servings of fruit and one of oatmeal, says Smithson.Having a life when you have diabetes 000AJP7 Did you know that benefits are available to Veterans, Spouses and their Widows for Assisted Living?

For more information visit www.frrm.org Day trip destinations Railroads first came to Florida in the 1860s with a line running from Fernandina Beach to Cedar Key. However, real development arrived after the Civil War with lines eventually becoming of Henry Flaglers Florida East Coast Railroad and Henry Plants Plant System. Later, the Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Air Line railroads built their tracks through Central Florida to the Gulf Coast. In the panhandle, Seaboard built a line west from Jacksonville to River Junction in Chattahoochee where it connected with the Louisville & Nashville Railroad west through Pensacola into Alabama. Also, the Southern Railway System pushed south from Valdosta, Georgia into Jacksonville. Since the Florida Railroad Museum is located in the Gulf Coast area, it focuses on the Plant System and Seaboard Air Line in that region. Henry Plant took over the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railroad and expanded into Tampa to connect with his steamship lines running to Cuba and other destinations. He also built hotels and key locations along this line in the 1890s. In 1900, Henry Plant died and his railroad interests were soon purchased by the Atlantic Coast Line, along with several other acquisitions in Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia. The Atlantic Coast Line made Tampa its major destination on the West Coast with maintenance shops, yards and shipping facilities located there. The ACL Florida main line ran from Jacksonville to Tampa via Orlando, Lakeland and Plant City. The Seaboard Air Line, based in Richmond, Va., was a competitor of the ACL and came to Tampa in 1902, running tracks through Ocala and Plant City before turning west toward Tampa. Seaboard began building branch lines just after the turn of the century to St. Petersburg, Bradenton, Sarasota and Venice. Both railroads also absorbed several short lines until their tracks intertwined throughout this region and laid the groundwork for their eventual merger in 1967, forming the Seaboard Coast Line.

fiber carbohydrates for greater health benefits. Whole grains provide greater nutrients than refined ones and high-fiber foods, such as beans, help with glucose response, says Amanda Kirpitch, registered dietitian at Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston. If youre eating more fiber-rich foods, youll also feel full and eat less, Kirpitch says. Visualizing a plate may help with carbohydrate planning, Kirpitch says, and she suggests you imagine half your plate with vegetables, a quarter with protein and a quarter with starch. Select foods that are low in fat and sodium in keeping with new guidelines. Saturated fat, which may increase your LDL cholesterol levels, should be less than 7 percent of your daily caloric intake, according to Smithson, founder of www. diabeteseveryday.com. (Minimize your intake of trans fats as well, say diabetes experts.) Sodium limits have been revised downward to 1,500 milligrams a day if you have diabetes, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. To control your sodium intake, eat fewer processed foods and more fresh fruits and vegetables, says Kirpitch, a certified diabetes educator. Anything that comes in a box or can is more likely to be high in sodium, Kirpitch says. CTW FeaturesCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, February 23, 2012 G5 OURTIME G12Thursday, February 23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME story should have ended that way. That is why they are called wild. Let me just say here that there are people who work with wild animals professionally. They perform very valuable research and guess what? They know what they are doing. Its their job. But even those professionals, with all of the precautions, are in danger. So what would make an amateur think for one minute that they could live on the wild side? It wasnt necessary to tell me not to try this at home. Now, I know that I was raised in the country and all that, but most of you know that wild animals are supposed to stay wild, right? I mean, even as a small child I knew better than to play with snakes (ewe! Snakes, dont even get me started on them) or any other, and here is the key word, wild animal. I moved to the river some 13 years ago and I made a deal with the alligators. They stay on their side of the river and I stay on mine. From time to time they can be observed, but Ive never once had the inclination to feed them, swim with them, or even get close enough to talk to them. Call me rude, but I discourage any kind of interaction. Now I hear that the orca whales are suing Sea World for enslavement. No, Im not making that up. Really, they are. Can you believe that? I would say in this case the animals are way smarter than the humans. I would hate to be the person that had to complete the court documents. How in the world (Sea World I guess no pun intended) could you write up that case to bring before the judge and what judge could preside with a straight face? Heres the thing about wild animals. It isnt like we can all sit around the table and listen to them give one of those Cant we all just get along speeches. Nope. There is no room for negotiating. Sooner or later they will eat you. Usually sooner! So my tip of the month is, dont give them a chance (to eat you, that is) and, oh yeah, dont give a dog a loaded weapon. Talk to you later ... Remember, laughter is the best medicine. TALKContinued from Page 3 Resources for job-hunting seniorsDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good resources to help job-hunting seniors? Im 60 years old and have been out of work for nearly six months now and need some help. What can you tell me? Seeking Employment Dear Seeking, The tough employment market over the past few years has been particularly hard on people over the age of 55. Fortunately, there are a number of online tools and in-person training centers scattered across the country today that can help. Heres what you should know. In-person help A good first step to get help finding a job is at a Career OneStop center. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, these are free job resource centers that can help you explore career options, search for jobs, find training, write a resume, prepare for an interview and much more. There are around 3,000 of these centers located throughout the country. To find one near you, call 877-348-0502 or go to careeronestop.org. Depending on your financial situation, another program that may help is the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). Also sponsored by the Department of Labor, SCSEP offers access to training and parttime job placements in a wide variety of community service positions such as day care centers, senior centers, governmental agencies, schools, hospitals, libraries and landscaping centers. To qualify, participants must be over 55, unemployed and earning less than 125 percent of the federal poverty level $13,600 a year. Unfortunately, 2011 federal budget cuts have significantly reduced this program funding, but its still a viable option. To learn more or locate a program in your area visit www.doleta.gov/seniors or call 877-872-5627. In addition to the national resources, some states, communities and local nonprofit organizations may offer their own senior employment programs. For example, in certain areas in Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Washington state and Wisconsin there are Aging Worker Initiative programs to help local job seekers 55 and older. To find out if your community offers any locally based senior employment programs, contact the Area Agency on Aging call 800-6771116 or see www.eldercare.gov to get your local number. AARP WorkSearch Another resource that offers free job help is the AARP Foundation WorkSearch Virtual Job Coach program. This is a volunteer-run program that helps any job-seeker (you dont need to be an AARP member), age 40 and older, by connecting you with a trained volunteer to help you search for jobs and get training. Call 877-659-0969 or visit aarp worksearch.org to find help. In addition, AARP also offers a jobs search engine that you can access at jobs.aarp.org. Or, if you want in-person assistance, AARP has 23 WorkSearch facilities around the country that provide free face-to-face help. To search for a facility, contact your state AARP office. See aarp.org /states or call 888-687-2277 for contact information. Online Resources Theres also a wide array of online employment networks that can help you connect with companies that are interested in hiring older workers. One of the best is retirementjobs.com, which offers a job search engine that lists more than 30,000 jobs nationwide from companies that are actively seeking workers over the age of 50. It also provides job-seeking tips and advice, helps with resume writing and allows you to post your resume online for companies to find you. Some other 50-plus job seeking sites worth a look are seniors4hire.com, workforce50 .com, retiredbrains.com, retireeworkforce.com, wiser worker.com, seniorjobbank.com, enrge.us (a site devoted to retired government employees) and yourencore.com (an online recruitment firm that connects retired scientists, developers and engineers with companies that offer consulting). Start a Business If youre interested in starting a small business but could use some help getting started, turn to the U.S. Small Business Administration which offers tips, tools and free online courses that you can access at sba.gov. Also see score.org a nonprofit association that provides free business advice for entrepreneurs. Jim MillerSAVVY SENIOR DIABETESContinued from Page 10GO NUTS Nuts can be a delicious, convenient and a healthful addition to your meal plan, say diabetes experts. Substituting 475 calories worth of mixed nuts (about 21/2 ounces) for the same calories in muffins improved glycemic control and LDL cholesterol levels in volunteers with type 2 diabetes in a study in Canada that was recently published in Diabetes Care. I include nuts with my meals, says Toby Smithson, certified diabetes educator. The calorie part adds up, but I replace other ingredients with nuts. Nuts have a pretty high satiety level and a little protein helps you feel full longer.

Nationwide, one in five Medicare patients is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. Locally, the percentage is much better. At Seven Rivers Regional, we average one in 10. Last year, health care reform was implemented to reduce readmission rates, which cost the health care system billions. The new plan has great potential for improving patient care and saving money. But it will take more than hospitals revamping their policies and procedures. Change of this magnitude requires a team effort between health care professionals and patients. Doctors and clinicians continue to develop advanced care plans and improve communication. Patients are encouraged to ask more questions and get the resources they need to make responsible decisions about their treatment and care. You can help, too. The next time you or someone you know is in the hospital, think about the following: Know what you say; say what you know. Communication is the most important tool you have as a patient. Talk to your doctor. Have your nurse explain your treatment plan. Share your progress with your family. Listen carefully. Ask questions. Repeat instructions back for clarity. And be honest about what you think and feel. Prevent medication mix-ups. Medication problems are a leading cause of readmissions. Doctors need to know about all of your medications (prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins and supplements). The easiest way to share this information is to carry a list in your handbag or wallet. The list needs to include the name of the medicine, the dose and how often it is taken. At the hospital, new medicines may be prescribed. Make sure you get clear written and verbal instructions on what to take, what not to take and when and how to take medicines. If you recognize conflicting information, insist on clarification. Keep your medical appointments. According to research by Stephen Jencks, M.D, published in 2009 in the New England Journal of Medicine, half of patients who returned to the hospital within 30 days did not have a bill for a visit to a doctors office between the time of discharge and re-admission. Many times, a follow-up appointment with your doctor is scheduled while you are in the hospital, or you are asked to make an appointment soon after discharge. Keeping appointments is your responsibility; a very important responsibility. Be honest about your ability to make follow-up appointments while you are in the hospital. Before you are discharged, a resource manager will sit down and talk to you about your concerns. This is the perfect time to address any caregiver or transportation issues that may prevent you from keeping appointments or picking up medications on time.

Someone asked if using a pillow would help, but before the deputy could answer someone else wanted to know if she could sit on her husbands lap while driving. The discussion went on as those who wanted to contribute, well, contributed, until someone noticed that the deputy had left. A group of ladies volunteered to make covers to fit over the headrests so that it would appear that someone taller was driving the car. This idea was quickly put to a vote before everyone forgot what they were voting for. The Ladies Luncheon Club spent a week in Tampa attending an orchid show. This, in itself was nice. However, a repeat of last years incidents may cancel future trips unless the ladies can somehow control their husbands while theyre gone. One person in particular you know who you are outdid himself while shopping at the locale grocery store by putting expensive things into a womans shopping cart. As if this wasnt bad enough, he went home with her. Fortunately, her husband didnt press charges. The same individual explained to the deputy that he thought he recognized someone in the store and got confused when he couldnt remember who it was until someone pointed out that he was looking at a mirror. They bought it this time, Vern. When the other husbands were interviewed about their wives leaving them alone for a week, some responded that this was the only way they could eat what they wanted without being told it wasnt good for them. One thing in common among all of the husbands was that none of them did their own cooking. When asked if they were afraid to use the stove, nearly all replied, Whats a stove? Those of you who hosted the Super Bowl Parties in their homes all had a great time. That is except for the ones who forgot to inform their wives. This might explain why all of those clothes were dumped on the front lawns and carports. The manager from the local bank has closed the drive-through lanes until the cash canisters are returned. He said leaving them at the drive-through pharmacies doesnt count. Until next month, stay healthy. TALKContinued from Page 3 By Beverley BakerSpecial to the ChronicleThirty days hath September, April, June and November. These lines are as familiar to most of us as the A,B,Cs. There are a number of versions of the rest of the poem, such as: Of twenty-eight there is but one, All the rest have thirty-one. or Save February, with twenty-eight days clear And twenty-nine in each leap year. or Leap year coming once in four. February then has one day more. Why do we have leap years? The Gregorian calendar now serves as the standard calendar throughout the world. The Gregorian calendar is closely based on the Julian calendar, introduced by Julius Caesar in 45 B.C. A leap year occurs every four years to help synchronize the calendar year with the solar year by adding an intercalary day, which is the day we insert and leap one day forward. Thus, we will add an extra day, Feb. 29, making 2012 a leap year. How many people do you know who were born on Feb 29? I can only think of two, other than myself, plus the boy, Freddie, who was born a few hours before me in Orillia, Ontario, on Feb. 29, 1932. Being first, he received the lions share of the gifts donated by local businesses to celebrate the event. These gifts were coupons for free milk, baby food (Pablum) and baby clothes. Disposable diapers had not yet been invented! I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth but, thanks to one of the merchants, I did receive a silver baby cup to hold in my hand. It even had my name engraved on it. That was the one lasting gift and I still have it among my treasures. Being a leap year baby was something of a hardship to a small child. Birthday parties were few and far between. I do remember the parties at 4, 8, 12 and 16. Then my childhood was over and birthdays became less important. What a long time it seemed between birthdays then and what a short time it seems as I grow older! People ask a lot of questions when they find out that you are a leap year baby. What day do you celebrate in non-leap years? To which I answer, whatever day is most convenient the last day of February or the day after the 28th or not at all. How old are you really? And they come up with the wildest guesses. They dont know whether to divide or multiply by four, which would make me 320 years old this year. Move over, Methuselah! I dont know whether or not the merchants of today offer gifts to leap year babies. I do know that the best gift for me is spending time with my family. I hope it will be a day to remember. And Happy birthday, Freddie, wherever you are. Beverley Baker is a Canadian snowbird who has spent the past 14 winters in Crystal River, enjoying the climate and the friendly community.

Could we talk? I love animals. I dont live with any right now, but I have had some very good animal friends in the past. Both my sons and husband will tell you that we had the smartest dogs that ever existed Lacey and Charlie Brown were the best. Im sure that I told you about the time my young sons and I helped our neighbor by burying her dear departed cat. We helped all right. You might recall that in the process we actually dug up her telephone line. Im sure that my sons will let me know that Im using the term we very loosely. Actually, I sort of dug up her phone cable. I guess Im not much help in an animal crisis. Animals are very interesting, dont you think? They are way smarter than we give them credit for. For instance, we knew a man who lived in Yankeetown years ago who owned a dog that would go anywhere with him any time. All his owner had to do was yell out, load up and the dog would jump into his truck. However, there was one exception to this behavior. If the man had too much to drink or the dog even observed him having one or two drinks, it would not get in any vehicle with him. I witnessed this on several occasions. The man would cajole, coax, promise food, try anything to get this dog to go with him, but I promise you that dog would not buy it. Pretty smart, huh? Apparently, the dog wanted a designated driver. Then there was the dog I read about recently who shot his owners friend who lived next door. No, really. The dog shot the neighbor with a shotgun. It seems that his owner, the neighbor and the dog went fishing. It was during duck season so they also took a shotgun with them. Somehow the dog stepped on the trigger and, well, the neighbor wound up with a butt load of buckshot. Accident? I think not. Just try and remember this story the next time you let a dog have access to a loaded weapon! Recently I saw on TV (watching the tube again) the documentary that a man filmed who wanted to live with the bears in Alaska and become one with them. Yes, he filmed the documentary. However, he wasnt able to film the ending. Why, you ask? Well maybe because he literally became part of the bear. The bear did something that is not totally out of character for a wild animal (bears in particular). Lets see, what did the bear do? It ate him. Unfortunately, the gentleman dragged his girlfriend into the wild to help with his animal observation mission, so the bear ate her also. It is unfortunate, but very predictable that hisCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, February 23, 2012 G3 OURTIME G14Thursday, February 23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME Sign Language ClassesInstructor for all classes is Sue Paulus. $35 for eight weeks.

Some animal observations Mary Alice TillmanLETS TALK see Talk Page 5 Dwight Dicks, our homeowners association president, announced at Friday Morning Coffee that since the clubhouse fire there wont be any more dances until the clubhouse has been rebuilt. Speaking of the clubhouse, management says the contractor is complaining about too many sidewalk superintendents that are interfering with the removal of debris. Residents complain that the contractor keeps moving the yellow caution tape further and further from the work site. The contractors complain that the residents keep moving it back. The resident porch dwellers, otherwise known as the Jury, have come up with another one of their famous ideas. In order to make it easier for the residents to keep tabs on the construction they suggested renting bleachers and charging admission. The plan was going as planned until the contractors refused to pay admission. The sheriffs department sent a representative to one of the coffees to discuss phantom drivers. This is different from the phantom cars often found, but never seen at red light traffic signals when the spaces between cars is mysteriously filled with invisible ones. Phantom drivers have become more noticeable since more and more seniors are moving to Florida. As seen from behind it appears that no one is driving the car since all that shows through the rear window is headrests. Occasionally hands can be seen moving the steering wheel. This freaks out other drivers and the sheriffs department has received numerous complaints, so the department is looking into the matter.

Cant wait to get your sleeves rolled up and launch into spring gardening? This season put your landscape to work by creating an edible landscape. Quite simply, edible landscaping is the practical integration of plants that can be consumed within an ornamental or decorative setting around the home. This type of landscaping selectively replaces ornamental plants in the landscape with plants that produce food. An edible landscape can be just as attractive as a traditional one. Incorporating edibles in landscape not only enhances the beauty of your home, but provides the added convenience of having fruits and vegetasee Garden Page 16 OURTIME Discovering the joy of retirement Gerry Mulligan Publisher Ken Melton Community Affairs Editor Cindy Connolly Community Affairs Graphic Artist Sarah Gatling Community Editor Trista Stokes Advertising Sales Manager Citrus Publishing1624 N.

bles right outside your door. Edible landscaping will allow you to create a multi-functional landscape that provides returns (herbs, fruits, vegetables and others) on your investment of water, fertilizer and time. This approach to landscaping may also help you add fresh, healthy foods to your diet and make meal preparation easier. Without the backbone of an integrated design, your edible landscape can be reduced to just another scraggly vegetable patch, so be sure to spend time on the front end. Temper your garden enthusiasm with the knowledge that many edible plants need maintenance and time to harvest, cook, and depending on the size of your harvest, preserve. When getting started with any edible landscape, keep it simple and begin small. Small and lean means you can easily maintain what youve started. Correct placement of new plants is an important consideration since most edible plants need at least six hours of mid-day sun to thrive and produce well. Another important consideration is that annual fruits and vegetables will do best when grown in soil that has good drainage and an abundance of organic matter. Try adding compost to your planting beds this spring. Plant selection is another important factor in ensuring success. Warm season vegetables such as beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, southern peas, peppers, okra, summer and crookneck squashes can all be planted in spring. Carrots and radishes can be planted through March. For starters, consider integrating peppers with a striking backdrop of tall red salvias. Spring is also an ideal time to consider incorporating herbs in your landscapes. Many varieties of herbs make beautiful ground covers when incorporated in an existing landscape. This time of year consider planting anise, basil, sweet basil, borage, cardamom, chervil, coriander, cumin, horehound, lemon balm, lovage, marjoram, mint, oregano, rosemary, sage, summer savory or thyme. Try planting a mixed border of culinary herbs in front of an existing hedge. Many fruit trees easily integrate into a landscape and function in multiple ways as shade and/or flowering trees as well as edibles. Smaller fruiting plants can substitute as shrubbery. Try using a selection of citrus for example, as a screen along a private patio. If space is limited, choose dwarf fruit trees over standard-size trees and select fruit varieties. For those who enjoy the fragrance of spring blossoms and better yet the harvested of tasty fruit, consider growing loquats, peaches, plum, persimmon and blueberries. Edible landscaping made simple Hang pots of herbs on the patio Locate cherry tomatoes in a window box or hanging basket Build a grape arbor Plant colorful pepper varieties alongside flowering annuals Tuck radishes or other short-lived greens into a flowerbed Plant basil together with coleus in a planter Grow chives around the mailbox Growing your own vegetables, fruits and herbs can be rewarding and fun, and the exercise you get in the process can help you stay fit. In an urban environment edible landscaping provides more benefits than just food. Edible landscaping is another component of urban agriculture. Homegrown food is considered by some to be more nutritious than much of the commercially produced food, and growing food locally saves the energy needed to ship it long distances.

G16Thursday, February 23, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME GARDENContinued from Page 15 March gardening tipsWhat to Plant:Annuals: Replace declining winter annuals with varieties that will provide color now and into the summer months, such as celosia, coleus, and impatiens. Bulbs: Plant caladiums for a showy tropical display all summer. Herbs: In addition to their culinary value, many herbs are ornamental and attract butterflies to the garden. Vegetables: If not already started, warm season crops (beans, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and squash) should be planted now for late spring harvest.What to Do:Azaleas: If azaleas need hard pruning to shape or produce a fuller plant, prune just after plants finish blooming. Prune spring flowering trees and shrubs after blooming: To guard next seasons blooms, begin pruning after the last flowers fade but before new buds set. Fertilize lawns: Apply a complete fertilizer to lawns after all danger of frost is past since fertilizing too early can damage the lawn. Prune shrubs and trees when new growth begins: The end of the dormant season is a good time to prune many trees and shrubs. Fertilize palms, azaleas, camellias and ornamental shrubs: Choose a fertilizer based on each plants needs. Irrigation: Now that dry weather is here, check sprinkler systems for efficient use of water.

PAGE A4 TODAY & Friday morning The News Service of FloridaTALLHASSEE In what one member described as an unprecedented settlement, the state Public Service Commission approved a plan Wednesday that will resolve big-money questions about Progress Energy Floridas base electric rates and two controversial nuclear projects. Progress customers will see their monthly electric bills go up in 2013, though they also will receive $288 million in refunds related to a repair project at the Crystal River nuclear plant. The agreement also will lock in the amount that customers will pay over five years for a proposed nuclear plant in Levy County. Supporters say those costs could have gone up far more if the settlement had not been reached. This may not be the best deal for all, but each party gets a little something, Commissioner Eduardo Balbis said before the PSC voted unanimously to approve the agreement. Progress and representatives of consumers, business groups and federal-government agencies announced the settlement last month after lengthy negotiations. The announcement came as the St. Petersburg-based utility and the other groups prepared for a year of major and controversial regulatory issues. Bottom line, residential customers who use 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a month would see their bills go from the current $123.19 to an estimated $128.12 next year, according to information presented by the PSC staff. The utility industry uses 1,000 kilowatt hours as a common measurement, though many residential customers use more electricity than that each month and PSC approves Progress Energy agreement See RATES / Page A2 Monthly bills will increase next year DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle State Road 44 resurfacing is rolling right along. The 11 miles of roadway has received its first layer of asphalt and the proje ct is only six weeks under way. The construction project was planned for overnight hours but instead is also being done during the day. M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterLECANTO Workers on the State Road 44 resurfacing project have hit the ground running. The project is barely six weeks old and already the first layer of resurfacing has replaced broken concrete on miles of roadway lanes. D.A.B. Constructors Inc. of Inglis has the $9.5 million contract to resurface 11 miles of S.R. 44 between Stokes Flea Market near Lecanto and County Road 581 in Inverness. Its the first major roadwork on S.R. 44 since Citrus Countys major east-west thoroughfare was widened to four lanes 15 years ago. State transportation officials said they hoped most of the work could be done at night so that lane closures would not have a significant impact on traffic. Conrad Campbell, Department of Transpor tation District 7 construction report manager, said the D.A.B. contract bars work between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. within 600 feet of a signalized intersection. At first D.A.B. was doing the work at night, grinding and repaving two-mile stretches of roadway one lane at a time. When colder weather moved in two weeks ago, the company moved to daytime work. District 7 spokeswoman Kris Carson said workers need temperatures at 45 degrees or higher for the asphalt to settle properly. The contractor is choosing to do some day work because the temperatures have been so cold at night, Carson said in an email. The project is scheduled to conclude in July 2013. Along with resurfacing the roadway, the project includes: Constructing new sidewalks on both sides of S.R. 44 between North Lopp Point, the projects western boundary, and Tighe Drive near the Lowes store in Inverness. Repairing other sidewalks along the roadway where necessary. Widening right-turn lanes throughout the project area. Replacing poles and signals at the West Homosassa Trail intersection with hurricaneresistant poles and signals.

SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS A young mans fateful decision to break the terms of his probation has drawn him a 30year sentence. Circuit Judge Ric Howard sentenced 25-yearold Robert John Michael Egan Wednesday for absconding from a probationary jurisdictional area in Texas to his home state of Maine. Egan and two others were arrested in February of 2008 in Homosassa for robbery with a deadly weapon and other charges. Egan pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced to two years in prison and three years probation in November of 2008. His probation included community service and the ability to move to his home state and county with the provision that he registered with a probation officer at these locations. Egan left Florida and moved back to Maine, but soon left Maine for Texas to be with his wife, who was in the military. He reportedly met a probation officer on two occasions in Texas and all the rules of his probation were explained to him. However, after a fight with his wife, Egan abruptly left Texas and returned to Maine without going through the proper Judge doles out 30-year sentence for probation violation See PRISON / Page A2 Robert Egan gets 30-year sentence. Romney, Santorum trade barbs Associated PressMESA, Ariz. Primed for a fight, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum traded fiery accusations about health care, spending earmarks and federal bailouts Wednesday night in the 20th and possibly final debate of the roller-coaster race for the Republican presidential nomination. With pivotal primaries in Arizona and Michigan just six days distant, Romney and Santorum sparred more aggressively than in past debates, sometimes talking over each others answers. Texas Rep. Ron Paul chimed in from the side, saying with a smile that Santorum was a fake conservative who had voted for programs that he now says he wants to repeal. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich acted almost as a referee at times. The most animated clash of the evening focused on health care. Santorum, surging in the presidential race, said that Romney had used government funds to fund a federal takeover of health care in Massachusetts, a reference to the state law that was enacted during Romneys term as governor. The law includes a Accusations fly in fiery debate Associated Press Republican presidential candidates, from left, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, former Pennsylvania Sen.

See DEBATE / Page A2 Gunman kills two in Ga. spa shooting NORCROSS, Ga. A gunman walked into the Su Jung Health Sauna, argued with someone and then opened fire, killing two sisters and their husbands, then himself, authorities said Wednesday And the carnage could have been worse about 20 people were inside the bath house when the shooting started near the front of the building. Four people were found dead inside, and another was taken to a hospital before being pronounced dead, police said. Surveillance video from the nearby Norcross shopping center showed the man who Norcross police Capt. Brian Harr said had been asked earlier to leave the spa because he was being disruptive. Police were not called. A few hours later, around 8:30 p.m., the man returned shooting, Harr said. Investigators believe the person who asked the gunman to leave was among the dead, Harr said. Investigators recovered a .45-caliber gun used in the shooting. Su Jung is one of several day spas about 15 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta, where there is a large Korean population.

requirement for individuals to purchase coverage that is similar to the one in President Barack Obamas landmark federal law that Romney and other Republicans have vowed to repeal. In rebuttal, Romney said Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, bore responsibility for passage of the health care law that Obama won from a Democratic-controlled Congress in 2010, even though he wasnt in office at the time. He said that in a primary battle in 2004, Santorum had supported then-Sen. Arlen Specter, who later switched parties and voted for the law Obama wanted. He voted for Obamacare. If you had not supported him, if we had said no to Arlen Specter, we would not have Obamacare, Romney contended. Santorum was the aggressor on bailouts. While all four of the Republicans on the debate stage opposed the federal bailout of the auto industry in 2008 and 2009, Santorum said he had voted against other government-funded rescue efforts. With respect to Governor Romney that was not the case; he supported the folks on Wall Street and bailed out Wall Street was all for it and when it came to the auto workers and the folks in Detroit, he said no. That to me is not a principled consistent position. The debate had a different look from the 19 that preceded it. Instead of standing behind lecterns, the four presidential rivals sat in chairs lined up side by side. There was another difference, as well, in the form of polls that underscored the gains that Obama has made in his bid for re-election. An Associated Press-Gfk poll released Wednesday found that Obama would defeat any of the four remaining Republican contenders in a hypothetical matchup. It also found that the nation is showing more optimism about the state of the economy, the dominant issue in the race. But for two hours, Romney, Santorum, Paul and Gingrich had a different campaign in mind, their own race for the Republican nomination and the right to oppose Obama in the fall. After a brief lull, the campaign calendar calls for 13 primaries and caucuses between next Tuesday, when Arizona and Michigan have primaries, and March 6, a 10-state Super Tuesday. Romney is campaigning confidently in Arizona, so much so that his campaign has not aired any television ads. But the former Massachusetts governor faces an unexpectedly strong challenge in his home state of Michigan, where Santorum is hoping to spring an upset. Santorums candidacy has rebounded in the two weeks since he won caucuses in Minnesota, Colorado and a non-binding primary in Missouri. The result is a multimillion-dollar barrage of television commercials in Michigan in which the candidates and their allies swap accusations in hopes of tipping the race. In all, 518 Republican National Convention delegates are at stake between Feb. 28 and March 6, three times the number awarded in the states that have voted since the beginning of the year. It takes 1,144 to win the nomination. The dynamic of the campaign Santorum challenging Romney made their clashes inevitable. Romney said Santorum voted five times while in Congress to raise the governments ability to borrow, supported retention of a law that favors construction unions and supported increased spending for Planned Parenthood. He said federal spending rose 78 percent overall while the former Pennsylvania senator was in Congress. Santorum retorted that government spending declined as a percentage of the economy when he was in the Senate, and he noted that when Romney was asked last year if he would support a then-pending debt-limit increase, he said yes.

Progress planned early this year to file a proposed increase in base electric rates, which cover many of the day-to-day expenses of running the utility. Such base-rate cases take months, require expert testimony and often delve into issues ranging from company profits to staffing levels. The settlement will allow Progress to raise base electric rates by $150 million but will short-circuit the need for a rate case. More controversial, however, is part of the settlement that will allow Progress to collect $350 million from customers over a five-year period for a plan to build two nuclear reactors in Levy County. That would translate into $3.45 a month for residential customers who use 1,000 kilowatt hours a month. A 2006 state law allows Progress to pass along nuclear-related costs to customers, though the Levy County reactors will not start operating for at least another decade, if ever. During a hearing Monday, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy criticized the continuing nuclear costs, questioning whether the project will end up being built. Progress, however, had been expected to propose passing along a larger tab to customers for the Levy project during the next few years. The settlement likely will delay construction of the multibillion-dollar reactors, though Balbis said he was concerned delays could hurt the viability of the project. The other highestprofile issue in the settlement stems from a repair project at a Crystal River nuclear plant that critics accuse Progress of bungling. The issue involves a chain of events that started in 2009 when the plant was damaged during the replacement of a steam generator. Last year, more damage was found as the plant was being prepared to operate again. That has led to questions about how or if the plant should be repaired and how the project will be financed. The settlement, in part, calls for Progress to refund $288 million in replacement power costs, which relate to Progress need to buy or generate electricity elsewhere to make up for lost production at the idled plant. But the utility also will get benefits from the Crystal River portion of the settlement. As an example, if Progress starts repairs by Dec. 31, attorneys for consumers and business groups could not challenge the decision to repair the plant and the construction method. Suzanne Grant, a Progress spokeswoman, said the agreement will lead to the utility collaborating with the state Office of Public Counsel, which represents consumers, as decisions are made about the Crystal River project. RATESContinued from Page A1 channels to maintain his probationary status. He was later arrested and returned to Florida. Howard said Egan also violated terms of his community service agreement. Before he was sentenced, Egan and his attorney, Assistant Public Defender Luke Waatti tried to make a case for leniency. Waatti said what Egan did was not a woeful violation of the rules of probation. He said Egan had a fight with the wife and removed himself from the situation by moving away. Egan also said he worked on his GED while he was in prison and had always worked since his arrest. But prosecutor Paul Norville asked for at least the minimum according to sentencing guidelines, which is 13 years. He said Egan flouted probation rules and absconded to Maine. Howard said the crime which involved a firearm can fetch up to life in prison and scolded Egan for blowing his chances by violating the terms of his initial sentence, which he thought was extremely lenient. Howard said he didnt know how its done in Texas crimes involving the use of a firearm but here in Florida we are damn serious about them. Egans 30-year sentence gives credit for time served. Egan and his co-defendants were arrested in connection with an armed robbery reported on Feb. 7, 2008, at the Kwik Save Food store on W. Miss Maggie Drive in Chassahowitzka. Store owner Vijaya Yakkanti, then 38, and store clerk Randy Kelley, then 45, had just closed the store when they were attacked by the suspects (one of them armed with a handgun) dressed all in black, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office arrest report. The thieves appeared to have been waiting outside the store to rob them, according to the report. Both victims were battered and later were transported to Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center for treatment of their wounds. Egan and his friends reportedly stole several thousand dollars, a wallet and a cell phone from the two men. PRISON Continued from Page A1 DEBATEContinued from Page A1

TallahasseeSuperintendents pan school grade changes School superintendents said proposed changes to Floridas school grading system would be unfair and cause needless failures. The Florida Association of District School Superintendents outlined its objections Tuesday in a letter to Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson. Among the examples they cited is a proposal to automatically fail a school based on a low reading proficiency score even though it may otherwise have an overall passing grade. Rip currents expected on Atlantic coastEmergency management officials said theres a high risk of rip currents along some of Floridas Atlantic coast beaches. They urged beachgoers to use caution if they visit beaches from Volusia to Palm Beach counties. Deputy State Meteorologist Michelle Palmer said ocean swells, local conditions and tidal effects are causing rip currents along the Space, Treasure and Gold coast beaches.

Levy Commission passes on Inglis meeting L OU E LLIOTTJ ONES Special to the ChronicleINGLIS The Levy County Commission is saying thanks but no thanks to an invitation to attend a public meeting in Inglis to discuss an upcoming vote on dissolving the citys police department. The vote on the proposed amendment to the city charter is March 13. To that end, city officials invited the county commission, Property Appraiser Oz Barke and Sheriff Johnny Smith to attend the public meeting at 6 p.m. March 6 at the town hall. The purpose of the meeting will be to allow the residents of Inglis to receive information to make their voting decision on the dissolving of the Inglis Police Department, Town Clerk Sally McCranie wrote in the invitation. Commissioners declined the invitation. I dont see where the Board of County Commissioners has anything to do with a local issue, said County Coordinator Freddie Moody. Commission Chair Danny Stevens, D-Williston, agreed. Stevens represents District 5. We dont need to be there, he replied. The sheriff has been there and told them what he will do. District 3 Commissioner Marsha Drew (RYankeetown) said, Its up to the sheriff to tell them what he will do. Moody said the town has to negotiate coverage with the sheriff if the residents vote to dissolve the police department. Sheriff Johnny Smith did not attend Tuesdays County Commission meeting when the matter was discussed due to a family medical situation. But Maj. Evan Sullivan said the sheriff had previously indicated he would attend. The town is voting on the amendment after a little over 10 percent of the residents signed petitions calling for dissolving the police department and merging it with the sheriffs office. The amendments wording was challenged in court and 8th Judicial Circuit Judge Robert Roundtree Jr. reworded it to only call for the departments dissolution and said the vote could go ahead on March 13, which is also the date for city elections. Lou Elliott Jones is the editor of the Chiefland Citizen. Official says March 13 vote on dissolving police department is a city, not county issue Magic number nears DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Chris and Carol Winterbottom work on cooking dinner in their Pine Ridge home. They are following a Weight Watchers diet to reach their goal of 299 pounds. This day Chris is cooking steak fajitas, which is nine points a piece as opposed to 15 points for an ordinary fajita. Editors note: Throughout 2012, the Chronicle is following local residents who have made commitments to improve their health, including losing weight, periodically running follow-up stories on their progress. Pine Ridge residents Chris and Carol Winterbottom, each beginning with weights more than 300 pounds, have additional challenges with diabetes, sleep apnea, back, hip and knee problems. Chris beginning weight: 335. Carol: 311. Theyve chosen to follow the Weight Watchers program. This story is the second in the Winterbottoms saga. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS Chris and Carol Winterbottom began 2012 with a goal to lose weight. However, first they had a 10-day cruise to go on and survive the nonstop eating extravaganzas cruises are notorious for. The food wasnt that good this time, Carol said. Even so, she came back 8 pounds heavier and Chris 4 pounds up. But they also came back determined to get started on their weight loss mission. For the first week we were back, waiting for the next Monday to sign up for Weight Watchers, we ate like we were on it already, Carol said. She had been on the program before, losing as much as 50 pounds until a back injury landed her in bed for months at a time and she gained it back. Although the program has changed since she was last following it, she knew enough to know the basics. By the first meeting I lost 11 pounds! Carol said. Her husband had been losing weight even before their joint New Years resolution. As of last week, two full weeks into the program, hes at 315. Carols at 305. They havent set a goal weight yet. Right now their eyes are on the magic number: 299. They want to get below 300. Carol thinks Chris will get there before she does, even though he has more pounds to lose. Already he has dropped one pants size, from 54 to 52. Its a man thing, Chris said. Its unfair because men can sneeze and lose weight, and its much harder for women. He said the advantage women have is that they actually like salads. He tolerates them, although theyre growing on him. Eating out is also a challenge. Their first week on Weight Watchers Carol went out to eat three days in a row. Its hard when they bring the Italian bread to the table and you stare at it until you tell them to take it away, she said. So far with their limitations they havent found an exercise they can do, although they checked out a local water exercise schedule. Its three times a week, and were going to try to go, Carol said. Right now Im feeling better cortisone shots. Im getting frustrated, Chris said. Because of nerve damage I cant walk on uneven ground; I cant walk downhill. Still, theyre both determined to succeed. Chris is the cook and hes finding ways to lower the calories and fat in his favorite recipes. They both agree that being accountable to thousands of Chronicle readers is just the motivation they need. Ive done this before, Carol said, but something always happens. Last year it was my back. I hope this time to do it. I really want to lose this weight Im tired of it.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com Husband, wife strive to weigh in at 299 pounds as first goal Healthy Resolutions Judge mulls governors worker drug testing order Associated PressMIAMI Lawyers for a government workers union and the American Civil Liberties Union on Wednesday urged a federal judge to declare as unconstitutional Gov. Rick Scotts order that state employees undergo random drug testing. At a hearing, the attorneys told U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro that a blanket policy covering some 85,000 workers in 18 executive branch agencies violates the Fourth Amendment by subjecting them to an unreasonable search without adequate suspicion that they used drugs. The policy instead should focus on workers in safetyrelated and law enforcement jobs, they said. This is contrary to decades of case law, said Shalini Argawal of the ACLUs Florida chapter. The governor has articulated no special need to test all employees. Attorneys for Scott, who issued the order last year, countered that there is adequate statistical evidence in years of national studies about workplace drug use and its dangers to justify the order. Drugs are very harmful, said Jesse Panuccio, the governors deputy general counsel. They create danger, not just if you drive a train. Ungaro, however, seemed skeptical of the Republican governors position. She quoted three key court rulings that say grounds for random employee drug tests should include such factors as a surpassing safety interest, a grave safety threat and a concrete danger. Which exhibits show a surpassing safety interest? Ungaro asked Panuccio, who responded by citing the statistics. Ungaro did not indicate when she would issue a ruling. Scott suspended the program in June because of the lawsuit. Meanwhile, legislation cleared a state House committee Tuesday that would allow but not require state agencies to randomly test workers every three months. C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe group charged with keeping vehicles moving in Citrus County will host a workshop Thursday that should affect its direction. Don Skelton, District 7 Secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), will lead a roundtable discussion for the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). Members of the TPO want to address the issue of whether to take the next step toward becoming a metropolitan planning organization (MPO), and, if so, when to move and how to do it. Transition to an MPO has been under consideration since November. At the TPOs January meeting, John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council, a nonvoting member of the TPO, said when the group was created four years ago its ultimate objective was to become an MPO. Siefert said the group would carry more authority in gaining funding for transportation projects as an MPO. The group is considering making the move now because upcoming census data may designate more urbanized areas in the county. At the groups December meeting, Dr. Tim Pitts, vice president of an economic development consulting company based in Beverly Hills, said the group should become an MPO quickly to get in ahead of national legislation raising requirements for designation as an urbanized area. Pitts made a presentation to the TPO board offering five options: dissolve the TPO; remain an advisory group to FDOT District 7; become a pseudo-MPO funded by member governments; merge with an MPO in a neighboring county; or become an independent MPO. Lee Royal, a nonvoting member representing FDOT, said at the January meeting if the county were to become an urbanized area, that designation would not guarantee transition to an MPO. The decision would result from analysis of urbanized planning and maps. Royal supported discussing the transition with Skelton. Following the workshop, the TPO will conduct its regular meeting. It will include an update on the request for qualifications for firms or individuals interested in providing transportation planning and related management services to the board, which also will decide its selection process. The board also will adopt its goals, objectives and policies. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

The House Judiciary Committees move sends the bill (SB 98) to the House floor; if it passes there without being amended, the measure would head to Gov. Rick Scott for his signature. Supporters of the measure say that it simply restores the constitutional rights of students by allowing them to decide without input from school officials whether an inspirational message should be delivered at school events. Local school boards could decide whether to enact rules allowing the inspirational messages. The bill is sorely needed to protect students from the war against religious liberty and free speech, said John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, which had voiced concerns about an earlier version of the measure. The Florida ACLU, the AntiDefamation League and other left-leaning groups opposition to this bill even after amended is intellectually dishonest, inconsistent with classical liberalism and really exposes their hostility toward religion as expressed by private citizens in the public square, he said. But opponents say the measure is little more than a stalking horse for religious messages. The reality is, its nothing more than a euphemism for prayer, said Rep. Richard Steinberg, D-Miami Beach. Its because we cant say prayer in a bill, because we know that the courts will strike it immediately. And that, they say, will land the state in court to defend the measure even as revenues for defending such challenges dwindles. Religious issues and government generate lots of litigation, said Pamela Burch Fort with the ACLU of Florida. And if this measure is enacted, it will invite litigation. David Barkey, religious freedom counsel for the Anti-Defamation League, labeled the measure unAmerican in a statement issued after the vote. Our public schools are about uniting children as Americans and not dividing along religious lines, Barkley said. Supporters pushed back on those notions. Rep. Charles Van Zant, the Keystone Heights Republican whos handling the measure in the House, emphasized that nothing in the bill requires prayer.

Soon, people slid down an emergency chute, inflated life vests and climbed into a raft. Mueller loved every minute of it. Most days he runs a book review website. But on this day he was living out a fantasy at American Airlines flight attendant academy, practicing evacuation procedures most people hope to never use. I look at the safety card. Its not supposed to be a comic book of things you want to try, but it all just looks cool, said Mueller, 40, of Los Angeles. There are people who grew up wanting to be Mickey Mantle. They go to Yankees fantasy camp. Others dream of playing Carnegie Hall. They join the summer orchestra at the shore. Then there are aviation geeks like Mueller. People like him and there are more than you think charter a commercial airliner and hop across the country visiting the Meccas of the aviation world. The most recent journey had 160 people paying up to $1,699 for a seat and access to spots normally off limits: Boeings sprawling 737 factory, Americans mission control-like operations center and the cockpit of the worlds largest passenger jet. Tickets sold out in 17 minutes. This is sort of the ultimate airplane nerd event, Mueller said. Most people board a plane to escape to a tropical beach, see the Eiffel Tower or visit their family. For this group, the journey isnt just half the fun. Its the whole point. They can differentiate between Boeing and Airbus jets just by looking at their tails. They know that on even-numbered flights, meals are served first from the front left of the cabin, while on odd-numbered flights, its the back right. Usually in your life, youre the only one who knows this stuff, said Gabriel Leigh, 28, a filmmaker and writer from Hong Kong. The camaraderie was part of the trips appeal. Sure, it was really cool to walk inside the first 747 ever built. But it was also fun to gulp down gin and tonics midair with other guys three out of four passengers were male who have the same passion for flying. How much fun? Well, American stocked the plane with four times the liquor of a normal flight. In each row, stories were swapped of amazing meals and opulent hotels in faraway lands all paid for with frequent flier miles. These travelers dont just love to fly; they are obsessed with collecting frequent flier miles at the cheapest possible cost. The fliers, who ranged in age from 20 to 81 and hailed from as far away as Chile, India and Italy, know the ins and outs of the programs better than anybody else and share pointers in online travel forums such as MilePoint. One tip: Prevent miles from expiring with a tiny online purchase at Target, Macys, iTunes or another retailer thats part of the airlines shopping portal. Such expertise led American Airlines and several other travel companies to help set up the trip and use it to pick the brains of these veteran fliers. They wanted to know what these travelers like and hate about the loyalty programs. Airlines need to keep their most-frequent customers happy. The top 20 percent of Americans customers generate about 70 percent of its revenue. Thats why Suzanne Rubin, the new president of the Americans frequent flier program AAdvantage hopped on the plane, along with other executives, for what she called a crash course in customer research. For those who dont travel frequently or play the mileage game, it can be daunting to understand the appeal of the programs. Its not just about free trips for this group. Its a hobby some would say obsession similar to collecting stamps or brewing your own beer. Associated Press Members of the Megado frequent fliers group float in a circle during an aircraft water landing emergency exercise at the American Airlines training facility in Fort Worth, Texas. In the ultimate field trip for aviation geeks, 160 frequent fliers chartered an American Airlines jet and hopped across the country visiting aviation industry spots.

The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE The Senate is likely headed for a Thursday showdown over funding for the University of South Florida, with a vote looming on a package of amendments that would bring cuts to the institution down to a level that Tampaarea lawmakers consider fair. The changes filed by Sen. Jim Norman, R-Tampa would boost the budget of the main USF campus in Tampa by more than $55.3 million from where the universitys budget currently stands under the Senate proposal. Normans amendments would use almost $27 million in Public Education Capital Outlay funding to help shore up the university and would shift $6 million in cuts to other USF campuses. The amendments would also restore $22 million in funding for the pharmacy school and staffing to USF. Those funds would remain with the newly-independent Florida Polytechnic University under the Senate plan. The budget being considered by the upper chamber includes $400 million in cuts for the State University System, which Senate leaders say can be covered by drawing on universities reserves. Opponents of those cuts say state law requires universities to keep a certain level of reserves and argue that drawing on those accounts would punish schools that have done a good job of using state money. The largest of those cuts would hit USF, which has been embroiled in a fight with Senate Budget Chairman JD Alexander, R-Lake Wales, over the potential independence of its Lakeland campus, USF Polytechnic, which would become Florida Polytechnic under a separate bill being considered with the budget. Alexander has said the cuts were divvied up based on the size of a universitys reserves not based on enrollment, which has traditionally been used to guide most funding decisions for higher education. Norman vowed earlier this week to file the amendments if he wasnt satisfied with the progress made by Alexander and USF President Judy Genshaft, who met Monday to try to hammer out an agreement on the issues. If the Senate position is just going to say, Lets go to conference, Im going to be filing amendments that I believe make USF whole both in the pharmacy school to absorbing the staffing to equalizing the reserves with all the other universities in the state of Florida, Norman said. Alexander would not comment about the amendments. Thomas Hayes, 66 FLORAL CITYThomas William Hayes, 66, Floral City, died February 20, 2012, at Citrus Memorial hospital.

I hope all of you readers are doing great. This is Susan, Lovinas second oldest daughter, and I am 16 years old. Last week, I decided I wanted to write the column since my brothers and sisters will be home Friday and Monday, which is their midwinter break. Mom usually writes her column on Monday mornings, but I thought with all of the children at home it might be extra noisy and busy. So I thought Id help by writing the column. I am not much of a writer, but I will try my best. I just came inside after working with Minnie, the miniature pony I am training for a family in our church. The family has three little boys. I want to tame Minnie so they can drive her. Minnie is a very small pony, but she is strong. She pulls our little pony wagon without a problem. I really enjoy working with her, so it will be hard to see her go back to her owners after she is trained. Minnie is the second pony I have trained. Our miniature pony, Tiger, was the first. Tiger is a bigger kind of a miniature pony. He is a stallion and was a lot harder to train than Minnie. He is also a lot more stubborn and not as gentle as Minnie. I would not trust Tiger around children like I do Minnie. Every pony or horse has a different attitude. I learned that real fast after I was kicked in the leg by our mare Ginger one time. It scared me very much and taught me to always be careful because a horse can hurt you. I really enjoy working with ponies and horses. It is my most favorite hobby. My dream is to have a big horse ranch someday. It might never happen, but it does not hurt to dream. God has a plan for everyone and it might not be what we want. I want to accept whatever His plan is for me. ( Editors note: A photo of Minnie and a video of Susans school work from last year has been posted at amish cookonline.com/susan.) I will try to write about something else, but talking about horses is always a favorite topic for me. Sometimes, I help my younger brothers Benjamin and Joseph throw hay down from the loft. One time after I hadnt been up to the loft in awhile, Joseph told me we dont need a flashlight. I told him yes, we do, because there are small holes in the floor in some parts of the loft. I told him if we dont have a light, we could fall and hurt ourselves. Our hay loft doesnt have windows, so it is sort of dark even in the daylight. Joseph said it is easy to see the holes because you can see the daylight shining through the floor. I was a little doubtful but followed Joseph up the ladder without a flashlight to the hay loft. It was pretty dark there. But Joseph acted like he knew his way around pretty good, so I stayed close. Benjamin wasnt up there yet. Meanwhile, Joseph took off and I lost track of where he was. I stopped in my tracks not sure where all the holes were. Then I heard something behind me, so I called for Joseph. I screamed as someone grabbed me from behind, it was Benjamin. Turns out Benjamin snuck up in the dark to scare me. They sure had a good laugh about it. When I work with my little brothers, I never know what they are going to come up with. Older Sister Elizabeth is at her babysitting job today. Mom is sewing and I am getting ready to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies. It is Monday already and Mom is enjoying the break from writing the column, but she will be back next week. She let us all sleep in since the children are home from school today. She had breakfast burritos ready for us when we woke up. The recipe Ill share is what I usually fix when I make breakfast for my family. I usually triple it for our size family. FRENCH TOAST 2 eggs 1/2 cup milk 1 teaspoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 2 tablespoons butter 6 pieces of bread Combine first 5 ingredients and stir with whisk. Coat skillet with butter. Dip bread into the egg mixture, just enough to coat. Fry in a skillet until golden on both sides.

Julio Gerena is in a wheelchair, his long career in the U.S. Navy and Army forever behind him. But the 52-year-old recaptured some of the old military camaraderie while peeling potatoes and chopping cilantro in a crowded kitchen. Gerena was among the first 16 wounded veterans who served during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to take part in a healthy cooking boot camp sponsored by the advocacy group Wounded Warrior Project. Former service members once consumed with patrols and sentry posts learned how to poach and saut at the Culinary Institute of America, the renowned cooking school on the Hudson River. The veterans learned some kitchen tips, but seemed to enjoy even more the chance to spend four intense days with people who have faced similar hurdles. There are some things you cant really get into words, but the Wounded Warrior program is to me what being in uniform was before: the camaraderie, the trust, Gerena said. I met some of these people just a few days ago, but I share what they went through. The Jacksonville-based organization runs a range of programs for wounded veterans at locations ranging from college campuses to ski slopes. The group brought its first batch of veterans into the kitchen last week in partnership with the culinary institute.

Obama seeks corporate tax rate cut, loophole limit WASHINGTON President Barack Obama rolled out a corporate tax overhaul plan Wednesday that lowers rates but also eliminates loopholes and subsidies cherished by the business world. A longshot for action in an election year, the plan nevertheless stamps Obamas imprint on one of the most high-profile issues of the presidential campaign. The presidents plan to lower the corporate tax rate to 28 percent came on the same day Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney called for a 20 percent across-the-board cut in personal income tax rates, underscoring the potency of taxes as a political issue, especially during a modest economic recovery. Obama has not laid out a plan for overhauling personal income taxes. But he has called for Bush era tax cuts to end on individuals making more than $200,000, thus increasing their taxes, and for a 30 percent minimum tax on taxpayers who make $1 million or more. W. Va. mine boss charged with fraud in deadly blast CHARLESTON, W.Va. Federal prosecutors investigating the West Virginia coal mine explosion that killed 29 men are working their way up the corporate ladder with criminal charges. On Wednesday, the former superintendent of the Upper Big Branch mine became the highestranking company official charged in the 2010 disaster, and he is apparently cooperating with prosecutors. Gary May, 43, was charged with conspiracy to defraud the government, accused among other things of disabling a methane gas monitor, falsifying safety records and using code words to tip off miners about surprise inspections. He could get up to five years in prison if found guilty.From wire reports B USINESS C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T HURSDAY, F EBRUARY23, 2012 A11 Advance Capital I: Balanc p 16.72-.01 RetInc 8.80+.02 Alger Funds B: SmCapGr 7.08-.03 AllianceBern A: BalanA p 16.54-.02 GlbThGrA p 67.82+.12 SmCpGrA 38.29-.26 AllianceBern Adv: LgCpGrAd 28.93-.02 AllianceBern B: GlbThGrB t 58.42+.10 GrowthB t 26.95+.02 SCpGrB t 30.66-.20 AllianceBern C: SCpGrC t 30.81-.21 Allianz Fds Instl: NFJDvVl 12.30-.06 SmCpVl 31.56-.11 Allianz Funds C: AGICGrthC 25.54+.07 TargetC t 15.43+.06 Amer Beacon Insti: LgCapInst 20.39-.13 Amer Beacon Inv: LgCap Inv 19.36-.12 Ameri Century 1st: Growth 27.58...

Stocks closed lower Wednesday for the first time in four trading days. Some investors worried about the details of a bailout deal reached for Greece this week. But analysts said investors were mostly in a holding pattern after seeing the market hit an important psychological mark. On Thursday, the government will give the latest reading on unemployment claims. They have been declining steadily and fell last week to 348,000, the lowest since March 2008. The Dow has lost ground on just four of the past 11 trading days. Its been trading at or near four-year highs for three weeks and is up 6 percent this year. On Wednesday, the Dow traded in a range of just 63 points. Over the past year, it has had smaller trading ranges on only nine other days. The average daily range over that time has been 181 points. Financial stocks led the market lower. Investors worried that a $170 billion bailout for Greece, announced Tuesday, would not be enough to keep the debtladen country from defaulting and possibly leaving the euro currency group. The Greek economy is entering its fifth year of recession. Fitch ratings agency downgraded Greece further into junk status Wednesday, to a rating of C, one notch above default. Among U.S. stocks making big moves: Computer maker Dell fell 6 percent after reporting an 18 percent drop in first-quarter profit. Toll Brothers Inc., the luxury homebuilder, fell 5 percent after posting a quarterly loss. Garmin Ltd., which makes GPS systems, jumped 9 percent after its quarterly net income rose 25 percent on higher prices and sales.

Page A12 THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012 Planned Parenthood In response to a letter by Ruth J. Anderson: With all due respect, madam, to you and your short letteron Planned Parenthood with your liberal and progressive twist!To claim Planned Parenthood is an organization that deals with womens health issues is, to say the least, economy with truth and fact. The health issue you speak of iscaused by self. The primary purpose of Planned Parenthood is to perform abortions and to dispense birth control pills and the day-after pill. A large percentage of birth control pills are given to teens without parental consent. Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the United States.At the last count the United States government gave $363 million of taxpayer money to this nonprofit? healthcare provider. As for your statement on Planned Parenthood being a provider of care for breast cancer patients, bull. You are referred to another medical agency! As a side bar 4,000 abortions are done daily by Planned Parenthood and other abortions plants. I suggest, madam, you read Planned Parenthood articles of incorporation. In closing, deal with this abortion fact: 93 percent of all abortions occur for social reasons i.e., the child is unwanted or at best inconvenient! As for your statement, There should not be a controlling organization of any kind that tells women what to do say what you mean.If it is the church you speak of then have the intestinal fortitude to say it. You are right, this is the United States of America and it is governed by a constitution. Read the First Amendment. It speaks of religious liberty.Michael E. Pitts Inverness Historic event On Feb. 23, 1945, five U.S. Marines and one U.S. Navy corpsman were on a hill on an island in the central Pacific Ocean: Sgt. Michael Strank, Pfc. Franklin Sousley, Pfc. Harlon Block, Pfc. Ira Hayes, Pfc. Rene Gagnon and Pharmacists Mate John Bradley. They were members of Easy Company. 2nd Battalion, 28th Marines, 5th Marine Division. Three of these Marines would die in battle later after thy found a piece of pipe. The rest is history.Neville Anderson Sergeant, USMC (ret.) I n their unflagging efforts to distance themselves from mainstream America, Republican leaders have gleefully seized upon a social issue thats guaranteed to backfire in November: Birth control. If youre mystified, youre not alone. Ignoring years of publicopinion polls, the GOP is boldly marching backward into the 1960s to question whether contraception is a legitimate health care benefit. The target, as always, is President Obama. He issued an executive mandate requiring free birth control be included in health plans provided to employees of schools, charities and hospitals connected to religiously affiliated institutions. Although the mandate excludes churches, Roman Catholic bishops are in a huff, saying the contraception provision violates the First Amendment and freedom of religion. Never mind that Obama softened the rule so the insurance companies, not the employers, will pay for the coverage. Never mind many employees served by these health care plans dont share the same religion as the institute for whom they work. Republican strategists see the controversy as another opportunity to bash Obamas health care reforms, and to rile up white Christian evangelicals who dont like the president anyway. As political miscalculations go, this one could be epic. If youre looking for a sure way to galvanize female voters against your own party, attack birth control. Whom does the administrations mandate help? Teachers, secretaries, nurses, lab techs working women who cant afford, or dont choose, to get pregnant. Yet to hear the yowls of outrage, youd think these hospitals and schools were being ordered to round up their workers and force-feed them birth-control pills against their will. Leading the opposition are Catholic bishops, whose archaic dictums against contraception are widely disregarded by their own flock. According to most surveys, about 98 percent of sexually active Catholic women use some type of birth control. Its safe to assume a rather large segment includes employees of, say, the University of Notre Dame. Polling also shows more than two-thirds of all practicing Catholics believe you can still be a good Catholic if you use contraception. So, they basically humor the church hierarchy on this subject, politely listening to priestly reminders and acknowledging the occasional admonition from the pope himself. Theres no movement to excommunicate parishioners for the alleged sin of using condoms, IUDs or pills because it would effectively leave most churches empty as a tomb on Sundays. Now, after decades of having their stance against birth control ignored, Catholic bishops have finally found a receptive audience: Republicans in Congress. Last week, having nothing more important to do, a House committee scheduled a hearing modestly titled: Has the Obama Administration Trampled on Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Conscience? Meanwhile, Senate Republicans are seeking to block any health-insurance rules that conflict with a business owners private beliefs, whatever that means. If such an amendment passes, we could theoretically see a mass conversion to Catholicism among company executives trying to squirm out of offering birth control in their employees medical policies. Smart corporations already provide contraceptive coverage because its way cheaper than paying obstetrical costs for unplanned pregnancies. Interestingly, as the bishops and their newfound evangelical allies promise to fight on in the courts and in Congress to knock down the presidents rule, little mention is being made of the large federal sums received by many of the religiously affiliated institutions affected by the birthcontrol mandate. Why should any school or hospital that takes a dime of taxpayer money be exempt from providing the same healthcare benefits that apply across the board? Thats what contraception is basic health care and thats how its perceived by a majority of Americans. In a New York Times/CBS poll last week, 65 percent of those surveyed said they support Obamas directive that all health-insurance plans should include birth control. Fifty-nine percent of everyone interviewed, as well as 57 percent of Catholics, said contraceptives should be provided by the medical plans of religiously affiliated employers. Obviously, limiting the availability of birth control is an unpopular idea in this country. That its getting traction in Congress illustrates how completely the Republican Party has been carjacked by its bug-eyed, rightwing fringe. Even as national womens groups mobilize to support the administration, the GOP presidential candidates are piping up to denounce the birth-control benefit as a sinister plot against religion. Among the alarmed is Mitt Romney, who as governor of Massachusetts uttered not a whisper of objection to a state law that was virtually identical to the presidents mandate. You can be certain the fall election wont hinge on social issues settled in the minds of voters decades ago. If the Republicans stay on this sorry, dead-end path, Obamas task is clear: Ice the champagne.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member New offices will better serve public A fter a decade of struggling with a leaky roof, cramped working quarters, not enough bathrooms for employees and the public, and flooding issues in the parking lot, county officials opened the doors to its new county office building at Meadowcrest last week. The county commissions decision to relocate constitutional officers offices from the city of Crystal River to an unincorporated area outside city limits rightfully drew scrutiny. Tension between the city and County Commissioner Dennis Damato was very public. However, in fairness, city officials did little to sway commissioners during its five-year search to find a west-side location. Suggestions of revamping a few of the blighted buildings on U.S. 19 w as not embraced by the commission and it moved forward on the Meadowcrest location. In the end, Damato made things happen and the county signed on the dotted line with Stan Olsen, the owner of the property. This move is a longterm solution and will not only meet the needs of today but also down the road as the county grows. With the move behind us, one of the top concerns we now have with the new location is safely accessing the office off of State Road 44 and County Road 486. A traffic signal is desperately needed at both ends of the thoroughfare. Turning left into the site from S.R. 44 eastbound and turning east onto S.R. 44 when leaving the county office create situations in which a fatal accident is likely to happen. Factor in the new Family Dollar store across the street, shoppers coming and going from Winn Dixie and county employees going home at the end of the day, and traffic is going to be a very dangerous problem. While we would urge the state Department of Transportation to recognize the dangerous situation and install a signal, the county is prepared to absorb the $200,000 project. Thats prudent, as safety of the public is a priority. THE ISSUE: Westside county offices open for business.OUR OPINION: It was a good move.

Fair enough, but the unemployment numbers I cited are correct. Unemployment was 8.2 percent in February 2009. Most of us understand that a presidents term of office is from February through January. January 2009 under Bush, they were 7.8 percent and in February under Obama, 8.2. During the meltdown in the latter part of 2008, unemployment rose from 5.8 to 7.8 percent and the economy was in a freefall. For the caller to use November 2008 as a reference point is meaningless, since we all know a lot happened at the end of the Bush term in 2008. Incidentally, using the callers selective use of dates, you may recall that during the first 30 months of the Bush presidency with a Republican Congress, unemployment increased from 4.2 to 6.3 percent. The last 24 months of that deterioration came after the Bush tax cuts, and those cuts never did allow us to get back to the levels we enjoyed at the end of the Clinton administration.

Crown princess about to give birthSTOCKHOLM The Swedish Royal Court said Crown Princess Victoria had been admitted to a hospital Thursday for the birth of her first child, who would be a future heir to the throne. Court spokesman David Lofvendahl told The Associated Press that Victoria and her husband, Prince Daniel, went to the Karolinska Hospital at around 12:30 a.m. Victoria married Daniel, a commoner and her former personal trainer, in June 2010. In August last year, the Royal Court announced that Victoria was pregnant and expected to give birth in early 2012. Victoria, 34, is next in line to the throne held by her father, King Carl XVI Gustaf, since 1973. The Swedish monarch is primarily a figurehead, representing the country as the head of state but without political power.

It was Argentinas worst train accident in decades. The cause wasnt immediately determined, but many pointed to a deteriorating rail system. Some passengers reported signs the conductor was struggling with the brakes before the crash, saying he kept overshooting platforms and missed one entirely. The dead included 48 adults and one child most of whom had crowded into the first two cars to get ahead of the rush-hour crowds on arrival. Some 600 people were injured, including 461 who were hospitalized, Transportation Secretary J.P Schiavi said. Hours after the crash, passengers relatives gathered at the morgue anxious for word of their loved ones. Speaking at a news conference, Schiavi defended the rail systems maintenance record. It was an accident like those in many other countries, he said. Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Clashes between Afghan troops and protesters angry over the burning of Muslim holy books at a U.S. military base left at least seven people dead and dozens wounded Wednesday as anger spread despite U.S. apologies over what it said was a mistake. The demonstrations across four eastern provinces illustrated the intensity of Afghans anger at what they saw as foreign forces flouting their laws and insulting their culture. The violence was also a reminder of how easily Afghan-U.S. relations can deteriorate as the two countries work to forge a long-term partnership ahead of the withdrawal of foreign forces in 2014. The unrest started Tuesday when Afghan workers at the main American military base, Bagram Air Field, saw soldiers dumping books in a pit where garbage is burned and noticed Qurans and other religious material among the trash. The top U.S. and NATO commander, Gen. John Allen, quickly issued an apology and telephoned President Hamid Karzai and major news organizations to explain that a collection of religious materials, including Qurans, had been mistakenly sent to be incinerated. As soon as someone realized what they were burning, they stopped and retrieved what was left, Allen said. Four copies of the Quran were burned before the incineration was halted, according to initial Afghan government reports. Anger about the burning spread overnight. A single demonstration outside the Bagram base on Tuesday gave way to three protests in the capital, Kabul, on Wednesday, along with demonstrations in the major eastern city of Jalalabad and in Logar and Parwan province, where Bagram is located. In Kabul, about 2,000 people massed outside a heavily guarded housing complex for foreigners, chanting Death to America! as they hurled rocks at the compounds reinforced walls and set a fuel truck ablaze. The complex known as green village because it boasts security equal to a military base houses foreign contractors, police and some coalition military forces. Eighteen-year-old Mohammad Shaker said he first heard about the Quran burning on Tuesday, and he and other members of his mosque decided to take to the streets Wednesday after morning prayers. This is not the first time theyre doing these things. They are killing civilians and taking photos of them. Every day they kill civilians with airstrikes. We cant accept their crimes in our country, Shaker said. The demonstrations prompted the U.S. to lock down its embassy and bar its staff from traveling. By nightfall, seven people had been killed four in Parwan province and one each in Kabul, Jalalabad and Logar province, and dozens were wounded, the Interior Ministry said. Associated Press Black smoke leaps into the air from tires burnt by protesters Wednesday during an anti-U.S. demonstration in Kabul, Afghanistan. Anti-American demonstrations erupted on the outskirts of Kabul for a second day Wednesday and in another Afghan city over an incident that the U.S. said was inadvertent burning of Muslim holy books at a military base in Afghanistan.

Court weighs military honors, free speech Associated PressWASHINGTON Free speech cases before the Supreme Court often lead justices to consider farfetched scenarios, and Wednesdays argument over a law making it a crime to lie about having received top military honors was no exception. One after another, the justices wanted to know whether a decision upholding the Stolen Valor Act could lead down a slippery slope to new laws against such things as lying about the Holocaust, an extramarital affair, a high school diploma, college degrees or to impress a date. Where do you stop? Chief Justice John Roberts asked at one point. But the justices also suggested that it might be possible in this case to uphold the 2006 law anyway by reasoning that Congress has an interest in protecting medals it created to honor war heroes. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who asked about lies about college degrees, also seemed open to sustaining the law. Here it does seem to me that you can argue that this is something like a trademark, a medal in which the government and the armed forces have a particular interest, and we could carve out a narrow exception for that. I think we would have to do that, Kennedy said. The high court has overwhelmingly rejected limits on speech, striking down a federal ban on videos showing graphic violence against animals. The court also rejected the attempt by the father of a dead Marine to sue fundamentalist church members who staged a mocking protest at his sons funeral. And in 1989, the court said the Constitution protects the burning of the American flag. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the earlier cases made clear that merely offending others by itself is not enough to justify limiting speech. So outside of the emotional reaction, wheres the harm? And Im not minimizing it. I, too, take offense when people make these kinds of claims, but I take offense when someone Im dating makes a claim thats not true, said Sotomayor, who is divorced. She seemed the least willing member of the court to accept the Obama administrations defense of the law and disputed the view that the value of the highest award, the Medal of Honor, or any others has been diminished because some people lie about having received them. The administrations top Supreme Court lawyer, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr., defended the law as targeted to protect the integrity of the system established by George Washington. The Stolen Valor Act regulates a very narrowly drawn and specific category of calculated factual falsehood, a verifiably false claim that an individual has won a military honor, Verrilli said. On the other side of Sotomayor was Justice Antonin Scalia. When Congress passed this legislation, I assume it did so because it thought that the value of the awards that these courageous members of the armed forces were receiving was being demeaned and diminished by charlatans. Thats what Congress thought, Scalia said. Shelling kills 2 Western journalists in Syria Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian gunners pounded an opposition stronghold where the last dispatches from a veteran American-born war correspondent chronicled the suffering of civilians caught in the relentless shelling. An intense morning barrage killed her and a French photojournalist two of 74 deaths reported Wednesday in Syria. I watched a little baby die today, Marie Colvin told the BBC from the embattled city of Homs on Tuesday in one of her final reports. Absolutely horrific, a 2year old child had been hit, added Colvin, who worked for Britains Sunday Times They stripped it and found the shrapnel had gone into the left chest and the doctor said, I cant do anything. His little tummy just kept heaving until he died. Colvin and photographer Remi Ochlik were among a group of journalists who had crossed into Syria and were sharing accommodations with activists, raising speculation that government forces targeted the makeshift media center, although opposition groups had previously described the shelling as indiscriminate. At least two other Western journalists were wounded. Hundreds of people have died in weeks of siege-style attacks on Homs that have come to symbolize the desperation and defiance of the nearly year-old uprising against President Bashar Assad. The Syrian military appears to be stepping up assaults to block the opposition from gaining further ground and political credibility with the West and Arab allies. On Wednesday, helicopter gunships reportedly strafed mountain villages that shelter the rebel Free Syrian Army, and soldiers staged door-to-door raids in Damascus, among other attacks.

Tiger Woods had to play a left-handed shot out of the desert. Retief Goosen holed out from 156 yards and didnt even win the hole. Dustin Johnson twice won a hole after taking a penalty drop. But the strangest sight of all Wednesday at the Match Play Championship didnt come from the golf course. It was Luke Donald on his way to the airport. Golf is like that sometimes, Donald said after his 5and-4 loss to Ernie Els, becoming only the third No. 1 seed to lose in the opening round. Its a fickle game, and sometimes it bites you. It almost took a bite out of Woods, who had to rally to beat Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano; and U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, the No. 2 seed who was 3 up with three holes to play and was sweating on the 18th until George Coetzee missed a short putt for par. Donald was so dominant last year in winning the Match Play Championship that he closed out all six of his matches before they reached the 18th hole. He wont be playing the closing hole at Dove Mountain this year, either. Els, who only got into the 64-man field when Phil Mickelson took his family on a ski vacation, delivered the biggest shocker in the first round by taking the lead for good on the eighth hole and putting the worlds No. 1 player in a hole from which he couldnt recover. Donald lost in the opening round for the first time in eight appearances in this World Golf Championship. I dont think it would have mattered who I played today.

Magic go on road, easily cut down Nets 108-91 Howard excels in audition for New Jersey Associated PressNEWARK, N.J. Dwight Howard had 20 points and 17 rebounds and the Orlando Magic rolled to a 108-91 victory over the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday. Howard, who can become a free agent in July if the Magic dont trade him by the March 15 trading deadline, got the loudest cheers from the crowd of 15,364 in the pregame introductions. And the center didnt disappoint in leading the Magic to their ninth straight win over the Brooklyn-bound Nets. Glen Davis, who hit his first seven shots, added 16 points for Orlando, which won for the eighth time in 11 games. Deron Williams had 23 points, six rebounds and eight assists to lead New Jersey, which headed into the All-Star breaking having lost 8 of 11. Rookie MarShon Brooks added a game-high 24, while Brook Lopez had 15 in his second game of the season after recovering from a broken right foot. Orlando shot 62.5 percent in the opening 12 minutes and jumped to a 34-17 lead. The final 4:16 were the key with the Magic closing the quarter with a 13-2 spurt that came mostly with Howard sitting on the bench. Davis hit all four of his shots and Jameer Nelson, who also had eight points in the period, hit a 3-pointer, one of 13 on the night by Orlando.

From wire reports NASCARs eyes on her S ANDRA F REDERICK Staff WriterDAYTONA BEACH When Danica Patrick walks through the garage areas at Daytona International Speedway, she is just one of the guys. But when she strolls through the Fan Zone area or past the Media Center at the race track, she is bombarded with requests for autographs and interviews. The 5-foot-2, 100-pound former open-wheel driver turned NASCAR driver has a lot of pressure on her to win races and the fans, media, racing officials and other drivers are watching. During a recent interview with Performance Racing Network, she said the added attention on her has not increased her stress level heading into her first Daytona 500. I feel good, she told PRN. Lets not forget I have been exposed to the Indy 500, which is one the biggest races in the world if not the biggest race in the world. Although female drivers have come and gone in the series over the last few decades, Danica believers are betting on the fact her skills are on the same level as her male counterparts. I think she is a competent driver, Jeff Gordon, driver of the No. 24 DuPont Chevrolet, said last week. She has raced her whole life and earned her way into Indy and now she has earned her way into here. Gordon is among many drivers in the garage giving her the thumbs up and thinks she is a great marketing tool for the sport. Who doesnt want to see a female come in and race with the males, Gordon added. While car owner and driver Michael Waltrip, a three-time winner at Daytona, believes she has tremendous talent, he is taking a wait-and-see attitude.

I t was the worst of times, it was the could-havebeen-worse of times. OK, apologies to Charles Dickens, but there was no best of times in either of two recent emergencies in Gulf waters. I hope what follows will help you avoid both worse and worst. From a press release concerning an incident this past Sunday: Watchstanders from Coast Guard Sector St. Petersburg received a transferred 911 call at 7 p.m. Sunday, from a concerned family member. The reporting source stated three men, ages 53, 40 and 16 were overdue from a sailing trip. The men departed from Cedar Key to sail their 16-foot fiberglass catamaran around Atsena Otie Key. The reporting source also stated the mariners had no motor, lights, electronics or emergency equipment aboard. The search for the men involved a Jayhawk rescue helicopter from Clearwater, FWC officers and Levy County officers and marine unit. After seven hours, at 4:30 a.m., the men were spotted approximately two miles offshore southeast of Atsena Otie on the hull of their capsized boat. A rescue swimmer was lowered and plucked the men from the boat. As Richard Hutchinson, a Coast Guard search-andrescue coordinator, pointed out, those hours spent clinging to a capsized boat, with the attendant risk of hypothermia, could have been avoided. Last nights search conditions were very difficult, said Hutchinson. A hand-held radio or Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon could have saved all involved several hours in a hostile marine environment. Just eight days earlier, the Coast Guard rescued two young men who had also been unceremoniously dumped into the Gulf, this time near Pinellas Point, at about 1:45 in the afternoon, when their Hobie Cat capsized. No fun, but things could have been worse. Ten minutes later, the Coast Guard launched a response boat, and recovered both men at 2:07 p.m. The difference? The men aboard the Hobie Cat were able to call the Coast Guard on Channel 16 on a hand-held radio. Hours in the water, not knowing whether youd be found in time or die of hypothermia, versus a 25minute wait for help you knew was on its way. Which do you choose? Oh, and if you think you dont need a radio because you have a cell phone aboard, ask yourself this: Have I ever had no signal on my phone? Last summer, I cautioned about a companys proposed cell phone system installation with the potential to permanently disrupt the Global Positioning System used by aviators, boaters and others, and asked that you contact your representatives in Congress, as well as the Federal Communications Commission, and request revocation of the permit. You did, along with 18,000 others who responded to the same request by BoatUS; it worked. On Feb. 14, the FCC announced plans to revoke the conditional permit it had previously issued to the company, LightSquared. You can relax a bit, but dont drop your guard completely. The FCC now has to have a 15-day period for comments on its decision to rescind the permit. It wont hurt to send a reminder to the folks in D.C., so drop them another note. Last week, we pointed out that with the erratic weather were having, seatrout will move from deeper water into the shallows in order to sun themselves and soak up the heat given off by rocky bottom once theres enough water in the shallow areas. Captain Mike Baize reports an abundance of trout doing just that around Long Point, near Ozello. Get in on that action. Tight Lines to you.

Tide charts Will your rescue take 25 minutes or seven hours? RG Schmidt TIGHT LINES A pril is right around the corner. For local bass-tournament anglers, that means the Citrus County Bass Challenge is nearly here. Nearly a decade ago, The Key Training Centers Melissa Walker asked me to help put together a fishing tournament to benefit the Key. With lots of help from a variety of people and resources, the first tournament came together and has taken on a life of its own. This year the tournament date is set for April 28. First and foremost, the purpose of the event is to raise dollars to benefit those who utilize the services of the Key Training Center. The Key Center works to ensure developmentally disabled adults and their families are offered the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of services including education, day and vocational training, residential options and community-living support. Lots of moving parts must fall in line before the tournament begins. Several months prior to the tournament, meetings are held to coordinate efforts to make sure all of the various parts are in place. The gears of the tournament begin to turn in earnest on Friday, the day before the event. A group of volunteers and Key Center workers descend upon the public boat ramp in Dunnellon to begin setting up tents, weigh-in tanks, tables, chairs and the like. Its the calm before the storm. The event attracts all types of anglers. Participants vary from seasoned tournament veterans who have competed at the highest level of the sport to mom-and-pop teams who fish in one tournament each year to aspiring anglers hoping to make a name for themselves the event has something for everyone. Teams begin arriving around 2 a.m. and trickle in for the next three and a half hours or so. A palpable intensity builds through the early morning hours as they slowly pass. Some teams have spent more than a week prefishing the waters, scouting likely areas and learning the habitats of the fish they hope will push the scales down the farthest. Anxious anglers make small talk with one another. Others sit in their boats planning strategy and awaiting their starting numbers to be called. Some catch up with friends over coffee and doughnuts during the hours prior to the start. As the eastern sky begins to splinter and the first rays of light mark the beginning of the day, lastminute safety items are checked and, one by one, boats are sent on their way. After the final boat is released, things seem calm and quiet for the first time in several hours. That all changes later in the afternoon. Beginning at 3 p.m., the first of four flights of competitors come back to the boat ramp area and begin the weigh-in process. It takes about one hour to weigh all the fish. The fish must measure a minimum size to be eligible for consideration, and no more than five bass per team may be brought to the scales. As tournament director, I think I have the best job of the day. I get to weigh the fish and get a few moments with each of the men and women who come to the scales with fish. We talk about tips and tricks and share them with the crowd. Pictures are snapped of the large bass that make it to the scales. Care is taken to quickly release all of the fish alive into the tan waters of the river to be caught again some day. Once all of the fish are weighed, the final results are determined. The team with the heaviest, fivebass limit caught in a legal manner (on artificial lures) receives the top prize as well as bragging rights for the next year. Weights are tallied down through the top 10 and the prize money paid descends accordingly. A number of contingency prizes are also given to teams that may not have had such a good fishing day. A big-bass award is also presented for the largest bass caught during the event. That fish pays somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000. First place pays in the neighborhood of $4,500 to $5,000. Not bad for an eight-hour day of fishing. Sixth through 10th places receive $300. Prizes are based on a 100-boat field. An entry fee of $150 is required to participate and an optional $10 big-bass pot is available. So, if fishing isnt your bag but youd like to see what its all about, mark your calendar for April 28 and plan on stopping by the public boat ramp in Dunnellon that afternoon. If youre interested in getting out on the Withlacoochee River for a competitive (or not-socompetitive) day of fishing, the Key Training Centers Citrus County Bass Challenge is for you. You can call 352-7955541 ext. 311 or go to www.keytrainingcenter. org for more information.

The Kings led 104-103 with 3:44 to play before closing with an 11-4 run.Rockets 93, 76ers 87 HOUSTON Luis Scola had 19 points and 10 rebounds, Kyle Lowry added 13 points and two crucial threepoint plays down the stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Philadelphia 76ers 93-87. Kevin Martin scored 16 points and Patrick Patterson added 12 off the bench for the Rockets, whove won three in a row and snapped a four-game homecourt losing streak to Philadelphia. Nikola Vucevic scored a career-high 18 points and Thaddeus Young had 15 for the 76ers, who will head into the All-Star break on a five-game losing streak. The 76ers lost for only the second time in their past nine meetings with Houston. Philly was held without a 3-pointer for the first time this season, missing all nine attempts. Bulls 110, Bucks 91 CHICAGO Carlos Boozer scored 20 points, Derrick Rose and Luol Deng each added 16, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 110-91. Joakim Noah had 13 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for the first triple-double by a Chicago center in roughly 35 years, and the Bulls simply ran away with this one. The Central Division leaders built an 11-point halftime lead and broke it open in the third quarter, a nice sendoff for the All-Star break. Ronnie Brewer scored 15 points as all five Bulls starters scored in double figures. Reserves Kyle Korver (11 points) and Taj Gibson (nine points, 10 rebounds) provided a spark as Chicago handed Milwaukee its sixth loss in seven games. Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 20 points. Timberwolves 100, Jazz 98MINNEAPOLIS Luke Ridnour hit a floater in the lane at the buzzer, capping Minnesotas comeback from 18 points down in the fourth quarter as the Timberwolves beat the Utah Jazz 100-98. Utahs Al Jefferson sank a jumper with Kevin Love in his face to tie the score at 98-all with 7 seconds remaining. After a timeout, Ridnour took a pass from J.J. Barea, drove the lane, and sank a shot over Jefferson as the buzzer sounded. Barea finished 22 points and tied a career high with five 3-pointers, and Ridnour added 17 points. Paul Millsap scored 25 and Josh Howard added a season-high 19 to lead the Jazz.

We have had other women in the sport, here as well as Indy. We will have to see how she does. One of her biggest supporters is her new teammate, Tony Stewart, the 2011 Sprint Cup champion. He is quick to say she fits right in with the guys and is looking forward to racing with her. Stewart said she has already grown in leaps and bounds during her limited schedule last year in the Nationwide Series and expects even greater performances from her this year. She learns so fast, more than any other rookie I have seen, said Stewart, who drives the No. 14 Office Depot/Mobile 1 car. You cant teach it, it is a skill and there is no doubt in my mind she has skill. Chronicle managing editor Sandra Frederick can be reached at 352-5642930 or sfrederick@ chronicleonline.com just didnt play well, Donald said. I struggled. I gave away too many holes and made too many mistakes. You cant do that in match play against anyone, let alone Ernie. Woods nearly found that out, too. He trailed the Spaniard with four holes to play, and both of them looked beatable. That changed when Woods drove the par-4 15th green to win with a two-putt birdie, won the 16th with a par and then closed out the Spaniard with an 8-foot par putt for a 1-up win. We both made our share of mistakes, theres no doubt about that, said Woods. But somehow, I was able to move on. That was the only objective in this World Golf Championship, a single-elimination format in which the only proper use of the word upset is the mood of the 32 guys who are headed home. Among them: Ian Poulter, the Match Play winner two years ago, suffered his worst loss in nine appearances when Bae Sang-moon beat him, 4 and 3. Bill Haas, coming off that monster win at Riviera just three days ago, looked like a winner when he was 1 up on the 17th green and had a 5-foot birdie putt. Ryo Ishikawa holed from 18 feet, Haas missed, and the Japanese star made par on the 18th to win. In the most thrilling match of the opening round, Jim Furyk was on the verge of sending Johnson home early for the fourth straight year when Johnson hit his tee shot into the desert and had to take a penalty drop on the 20th hole. Furyk chipped across the green and threeputted for bogey to lose. Rafael Cabrera-Bello was 3 up with three holes to play against Jason Day when he bogeyed three straight holes, and Day beat him with a 4-foot birdie putt on the 19th hole. The other top seeds didnt have too many problems, although McIlroy had a nervous moment. He won four straight holes on the back nine to seize control against Coetzee and was 3 up with three to play when McIlroy lost the next two holes with bogeys, then popped up a tee shot and made par a challenge. Coetzee, however, blew his approach some 60 feet long on the 18th and three-putted for bogey, giving McIlroy a 2-up win. Lee Westwood never trailed in his 3-and-1 win over Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium. The test for Westwood comes on Thursday against Robert Karlsson, when he tries to advance to the third round for the first time.

For more about the festival visit www.willmclean.com FSU finally finds replacement for WVU Seminoles football team will host Savannah State Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State has replaced perennial college football power West Virginia on its 2012 schedule with little Savannah State. The Seminoles will host The Tigers, from the Football Championship Subdivision, on Sept. 8 as a replacement opponent for the Mountaineers. West Virginia broke the front end of a home-andhome contract with the Seminoles to ostensibly accommodate their move from the Big East Conference to the Big 12. Athletic Director Randy Spetman and his top associate, Monk Bonasorte, said Wednesday they have been scrambling for nearly three weeks trying to fill the scheduling hole created by West Virginias decision earlier this month to back out of the highly anticipated early season contest. Florida State receives a $500,000 buyout and may sue to recover approximately $2 million in revenue losses. We contacted every BCS school that had an opening in hopes to replace (West Virginia) with a BCS opponent, Spetman said. None of those few schools could make it work either because of our dates or theirs. Spetman said they talked with Arkansas, Cincinnati, Oklahoma, Pitt, Syracuse and Texas A&M among others. Weve done everything we could to explore all the options for a home game, said coach Jimbo Fisher, who is 19-8 after his first two seasons at Florida State. Spetman said Florida State plans to honor its end of the deal and play the scheduled 2013 game in Morgantown, W. Va. Florida State rejected some overtures to turn a scheduled home date into a road game in consideration of local merchants. Lee Daniel, the executive director of Visit Tallahassee, said the economic impact of home football games range between $1 million and $10 million depending on the opponent and time of game. Spetman said the university grossed roughly $2.5 million more from last years home game against Oklahoma than it did from a game one week earlier against tiny Charleston Southern, a smaller-division school that finished its 2011 season 0-11. A member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, Savannah State finished 1-10 in the 2011 season and was outscored by an average of nearly 31 points in its losses. Florida A&M, which sits less than a mile away from the Florida State campus, routed Savannah State 47-7 last year in Savannah. Savannah State has got a great band, Spetman said, noting that the school would make Sept. 8 band day. Savannah State will receive $475,000 for its visit. Marlins hoping pitcher will curb temper Associated PressJUPITER Carlos Zambrano waited until the end of his throwing session Wednesday to try out a brushback pitch on Ozzie Guillen. The Miami Marlins manager was leaning on a bat near home plate, watching Zambrano work, when a fastball came whizzing his direction. Guillen let out a yelp and dodged the pitch with a frantic skip. He was in my way, Zambrano said. No, Im just kidding. Thats the last time he throws at somebody, Guillen said with a laugh. Probably not. Zambrano wore out his welcome with the Chicago Cubs because of a combative personality, so there are likely more brushbacks to come. The Marlins are counting on it. Its going to be a fun season for Carlos, said Guillen, a fellow Venezuelan and the biggest reason Zambrano landed with Miami. He cant wait to show people how good he can be. Is Carlos going to be mad? Of course. I want him to be mad. It was too much, too long the last couple of years, but I want him to be himself. Zambrano had a series of run-ins with teammates, management and umpires before his 11-year Cubs career ended last August when he was ejected from a game, cleaned out his locker, talked about retiring and was suspended without pay. He subsequently apologized, and did so again Wednesday. In my mind and my heart I just wanted to help the club and do good for them, Zambrano said. The fans deserve a championship in Chicago. Hopefully they can get it soon. They were outstanding for me, and I appreciate that. I have nothing but thanks for everybody in Chicago, but I have to move forward and help this team win a championship. To do so, Zambrano must harness his emotions. Anger management classes in Chicago didnt help. Can he keep his cool in sweltering Miami? Wait to see, he said. There was a lot for Zambrano to get upset about last season, the worst of his career. His velocity dropped and his ERA soared to 4.82, his highest by nearly a run. The three-time All-Star gave up more than one hit per inning for the first time, and he went 9-7 in 24 starts. Last month, Zambrano became part of the Marlins makeover when they acquired him for right-hander Chris Volstad. It was a low-risk deal for Miami, which will pay only $2.55 million of Zambranos $18 million salary. Longtime friend Guillen, the Marlins new manager, encouraged the trade. We really took Ozzies lead, president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said. It was an opportunity to bring in a veteran who knows the league. This guy competes and wants to win. No one doubts that. Losing tore up Zambrano; as a result, he tore up the Cubs clubhouse. Now hes with a team that expects to give the Phillies and Braves a run for the NL East title. We have everything, Zambrano said. Pitching, good bullpen, speedy team, power team, good manager. Its up to us. A winning environment might help Zambrano turn things around, and hes already getting plenty of TLC. Closer Heath Bell, another Marlins newcomer, greeted the big right-hander with a hug when they first met last week. He hasnt stopped smiling since Ive seen him, Bell said. I told him every day Im going to give him a hug. And he said, Every day Im going to smile. And I said, All right, this is a beautiful friendship. Braves Uggla wants fast start Associated PressKISSIMMEE When Dan Uggla arrived for spring training with the Atlanta Braves, he felt at home. The layout of the clubhouse was just as he remembered it. He knew where to find his locker. All the guys seemed like old friends. Its a more comfortable feeling, Uggla said, pulling on his uniform. I know where my place is on this team. I already know everybody respects me as a ballplayer, the way I go about my business. Its not like Im trying to set the stage for something. Its already out there. The Braves can only hope that Ugglas familiarity leads to a much better start in 2012. A year ago, after being acquired from the Marlins and signed to a five-year, $62 million contract, Uggla pressed to make a good first impression on his new team and wound up making a mess of the first half of the season. Hed always been a slow starter anyway, but this was ridiculous. By the Fourth of July, the Mendoza Line was some faraway fantasy for the slugging infielder. Ugglas average was a puny .173 downright embarrassing for any player, much less one of his stature. The next day, he started a hitting streak that lasted 33 games the longest in Atlanta history. Of course, after putting himself in such a deep hole, Uggla was only able to raise his average to .233 by the end of the season. Still, he turned in a more-thanrespectable year, considering how it began, leading the Braves with 36 homers and 82 RBIs, while extending his streak of 30-homer seasons to five in a row. No other second baseman in baseball history has more than three. Still, theres the matter of that hideous slump. What I went through last year, its hard to put a finger on it, Uggla said. I guess somebody wanted me to struggle for three months. Maybe they were testing my character. Who knows? Thats just the way it went down. Whos to say why or how or what happened. Actually, hes just a player who doesnt want to make excuses. Its clear he put too much pressure on himself coming to a new team. He knew the Braves expected big production in the middle of their lineup. Thats why they made the trade. Thats why they forked over that huge contract. Uggla who struggled mightily just to make it to the big leagues was determined to show everyone he wasnt going to work any less. Heck, he would work even harder. Then, when the outs piled up, he pressed even harder. Before he knew it, Ugglas season had all the makings of a total bust. I wouldve loved to have hit 20 homers in April, he said. For it to go the opposite way, it was one of those things I had to battle through. But yeah, of course, theres added pressure. Its just there. Its automatically gonna be there. Whether you put it on yourself or you dont, its there. Because its a new team, a new contract. But Im not saying thats why I (stunk) for the first half. Because theres gonna be pressure every year. Associated Press Miami Marlins pitcher Carlos Zambrano throws during spring training Wednesday in Jupiter. The Marlins are betting that Zambrano, a former Chicago Cub, can keep his legendary temper under control and produce at a high level in Miamis rotation. Associated Press Atlanta Braves Chipper Jones, center, Brian McCann, right, and Dan Uggla model the clubs new alternative home uniform during a news conference to introduce the new threads on Feb. 6 in Atlanta. The uniform pays homage to the teams past, reflecting more of the look of the 1966 team.

Franklin clarifies Houston remarks NEW YORK Aretha Franklin says Cissy Houston raised her daughter Whitney Houston well and that an interview where Franklin said parents need to make sure children leave home prepared was taken out of context. Franklin released a statement Wednesday, four days after Houstons funeral. She was expected to sing at the funeral, but bowed out because of leg problems. In an interview about Houston on NBCs Today show last week, Franklin said parents need to talk to their children to make sure they leave home prepared, really. She left home with all the right things. Franklin said her full statement This is no reflection on Cissy or Nippys upbringing, using a nickname for Houston wasnt aired. Houston fought substance abuse for years. The cause of her Feb. 11 death has yet to be determined.

J AKE C OYLE AP Entertainment WriterREDDING, Conn. Down a quiet country road in rural Connecticut, in a home with a stone wall out front and glittery pinecones on the coffee table, lives Michael Ian Black. It is, if anything, an unlikely outpost for one of comedys most freeflowing fonts, a prodigious, medium-shifting comic who came up as a member of the sketch comedy troupe The State, went on to make cult TV shows and movies, and has now transitioned into standup and book writing. More than 1.7 million follow his steady stream of jokes and observations on Twitter. The peculiar normalcy of his residence isnt lost on Black. Of his peaceful town, Redding, he says, most of the crime here is committed by me. Even last night, I was walking around this house, and just going, This is my house? says Black, gazing around on the interiors which house him, his wife Martha HagenBlack, their two children, their dog and their cat. Its that sense of curious dissociation that kicks off Blacks new book, Youre Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Death and Other Humiliations. Its a comedic memoir-ish tale that Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, will publish Tuesday. He opens the book with the selfexamination of a midlife crisis, lamenting the mere image of the word forty (his age) as like a shrub that died while morosely scouring the Internet for photos of Fat Kevin Federline a kind a stand-in for all of Blacks fears of failure, irrelevance and terrible hair decisions. I wonder if, like me, there are people who occasionally experience the curious, disembodying sensation of not recognizing their present life as their own, writes Black. It is a feeling I can only describe as the opposite of deja vu. What follows is a kind of inspection of that life, principally his relationship with Hagen-Black and their experience raising two children. Though Youre Not Doing It Right has much comedy in it, its foremost trait is its honesty a clear-eyed truth-telling about the hardships of marriage (including the admission that both he and Hagen-Black sometimes fantasize about divorce), the death of his father, and the frustrations of childrearing (the music of Creed, of all things, sparks an emotional breakthrough on fatherhood). But even uttering the label memoir approximate but unavoidable bothers Black. Its like Im lashing myself when I say it, he says. It implies a level of accomplishment that I certainly dont feel. I havent really achieved anything other than landing on basic television. ... Tina Fey, she can write a memoir. Black doesnt savor his choice, knowing it rings of bandwagonhopping. Comedic memoirs have become en vogue in recent years, including those by Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman and Blacks fellow State alum and frequent collaborator Michael Showalter, who released the postmodern Mr. Funny Pants last year. Its Blacks fourth book following two childrens books and the collection of humorous essays My Custom Van (sample essay: What I Would Be Thinking If I Were Billy Joel Driving to a Holiday Party Where I Knew There Was Going to Be a Piano). With Youre Not Doing It Right, Black wanted to pursue a more personal approach in tandem with his recent focus in stand-up. I was trying to figure out ways to expand myself creatively as opposed to just being the smug, smarmy a that Im familiar to most people as, says Black. It was feeling limiting, so I felt like I need to do more and open myself up a little more. Black is still striking out in different directions. This summer, hell release a political book with Meghan McCain, the blogger and daughter of Sen. John McCain, about driving across the country with her. Hes written a screenplay with Showalter and the two have further movie ideas, all of which he says could be mainstream comedies. Hell also be a part of a planned prequel/sequel to the cultishly adored film Wet Hot American Summer. In a career full of transitions, Youre Not Doing It Right is Blacks most personal turn yet. I dont know that Ive ever been happier, says Black. Its nice not knowing (whats next). Other than the panic, its nice. Laughing matters Todays birthday: There are strong indications that a bit more drama than usual is likely to come into your life in the year ahead.

As you go about your duties, treat life philosophically and roll with the punches. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Its an excellent time to get to the bottom of a matter of profound personal importance.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Try to do what Kipling suggested many years ago: dream, but dont make dreams your master; think, but dont make thoughts your aim. Use your mind for practical, productive purposes. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Interesting financial conditions surround you. Theres a chance you might sell something you dont possess, but have in inventory and can easily get your hands on.

Tasting the food of an ancient F LAIR FOR F OOD Section C THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012 INSIDE Wines and Such PAGE C2 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE J ULIANNE M UNN Chronicle food writerts time once again to taste the flavors of the Greek isles at the annual St. Michael the Archangel Greek Festival starting today at the church in Lecanto off State Road 44. Embedded in Greek mythology, festivals historically date back to the celebration of Dionysus. The festival for Dionysus is in the spring when the leaves begin to reappear on the vine. It became one of the most important events of the year. Its focus became the theater. Most of the great Greek plays were initially written to be performed at the feast of Dionysus, according to www.greekmythology.com. One of the largest festivals in Citrus County, the bi-annual four-day event draws thousands of visitors eager to sample Greek dishes prepared by members of the church, take part in the traditional ethnic dances and songs and browse a stunning array of vendors displaying and selling Greek items. Jewelry, clothing, arts and crafts and religious items will be available in booths at the church. Greek heritage is part and parcel of festive occasions, the church website states, with a long history of festivals focused on or around a parishs patron saint and Hellenic history. Though the authentic Greek cuisine is one of the most popular aspects of the events, visitors also enjoy the traditional dances, said Bill Patides, one of hundreds of church members who help make the festival a success. More than 4,000 traditional dances come from all regions of Greece. Pan-Hellenic dances have been adopted throughout the Greek world, including the regional variations tsamikos, syrtos and kalamatianos. Patides said dancers will come from Greek communities in the Tarpon Springs and Clearwater areas to perform Friday and Saturday. Back again too, he noted, is George Kanaris, owner of Emilys Restaurant south of Homosassa. Kanaris will provide and rotisserie the lamb for gyros, souvlaki and other dishes. The dishes include a variety of indemand desserts, such as baklava (flaky honey-drenched pastry filled with crushed walnuts or pistachios), and many other toothsome treats. Members work months ahead of time to prepare these and other specialties such as moussaka and pastistio entres in the church kitchen. Kanaris is one of many members and businesses that help ensure the success of the festivals by donating food and time. If you dont have time to sit a spell and enjoy a meal, dinners may be taken home from YiaYias Kitchen. Thirsty? Patides said visitors will find plenty of traditional Greek beverages such as retsina wine (which some say is an acquired taste); ouzo, a spirit; and a variety of beer. You might also wish to purchase the churchs Greek Cookbook in order to prepare the same delicious dishes at home. Greek God Julianne Munn OVER EASY Good food from Greece I ts all things Greek this weekend at St. Michael the Archangel Church in Lecanto. Kudos to members of the church for their hard work over the years in making this one of the largest festivals in Citrus County. Until a few years ago, the Greek Festival was once a year. But now its double the fun with a second event in the spring. On top of that, seafood suppers such as fried fish and calamari are offered at the church on Fridays throughout the year. You can eat in or carry out. Here is one of my favorite Greek salads: GREEK COUNTRY SALAD 4 radishes 1 red onion, cut into rings 1 or 2 tomatoes, cut into wedges 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled 1 teaspoon sea salt 1 clove garlic 8 kalamata olives 5 anchovy fillets 1 tablespoon Greek oregano 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1/2 cup olive oil Cut radishes, onions and tomatoes. Add some salt into a bowl. Crush garlic clove and rub into bowl. Add vegetables, cheese, salt, olives, anchovies and oregano. Sprinkle with lemon juice, salt, pepper and oil. Toss. Add more lemon juice and oil to taste. (I use a large cucumber cut into chunks instead of radishes). Great-granddaughter Julia Belle was in town last Saturday. We spent some time visiting Ozello, where the 8-year-old was fascinated with the blue crab farm at Pecks Old Port Cove. After the crabs shed their shells, they are fried until crispy and brown for the popular soft-shelled crab dinners. No pickin, just good eatin. From there, we drove out County Road 495 to the Register Cracker Farm, where my little namesake had a ball picking a bucket full of strawberries from the hydroponically grown plants. About 2 p.m. it was time for her to head home with some stories to tell at school about a few hours of fun in old Florida. February means Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and you might want to recognize the festival with a hearty gumbo: CHICKEN AND ANDOUILLE GUMBO 1 (4to 5-pound) chicken, cut into serving pieces 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 cup vegetable oil 1 cup all-purpose flour 2 cups chopped onion See EASY / Page C2 ChronicleWhile Valentines Day is the main holiday focus of February, two Chronicle staffers decided to delve into Internet recipes with a patriotic flair for Presidents Day.

Set aside. In a large heavy pot or Dutch oven, combine oil and flour. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring constantly, to make a dark brown roux. Add onion, bell pepper and celery. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until very soft. Add broth and stir to blend well. Add chicken, bay leaves and thyme. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 2 to 3 hours, or until chicken is fork-tender. (In authentic Cajun gumbo, the chicken is left on the bone. However, to make the gumbo easier to eat, you may wish to cut the meat from the bone.) Add sausage and cook for 30 minutes. Add and adjust seasonings to taste. Add green onions and parsley and serve immediately with steamed rice. EASY Continued from Page C1 Patides said funds raised by the festivals are used for various church projects and programs throughout the year. More than 3,200 visitors attended the fall Greek festival, and a larger turnout is expected this weekend, he added. The festivities are inside and outside the church at 4705 State Road 44, Lecanto. Hours are from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission is a $1 donation. Here are some typical dishes that might be found at the Greek festivals. GREEK HOLIDAY COOKIES 1 1/2 cups butter, softened 1 1/4 cups sugar 4 eggs 2 tablespoons orange juice 3 teaspoons vanilla extract 5 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 3/4 teaspoon baking soda In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar.

At least once during the wine events I conduct, someone asks, Do you have any sweet wines at your table? About 80 percent of the time, I am forced to reply, Sorry not this evening. I reckon most of these good people are likely enjoying their first wine tasting and have not developed a palette for 90 percent of the worlds wine selections, the majority of which are considered dry. The wine lexicon does not accept the word sour as the reverse of sweet because this designation quite naturally will turn people away. Who wants to drink sour anything? Hence the term dry. Sweet wine is one containing unfermented or residual sugar. With great dessert wines from France such as Sauternes, or the Beerenauslese of Germany, the sugar must come by law from natural grape sugars present at the time of harvest. Gentle readers, please understand todays many pop wines achieve their appeal by adding a sweetening agent after fermentation. There are scads of somewhat sweet wines from Australia (Traminer-Riesling), California (Chenin Blanc) and Germany (Riesling). The method used to achieve sweetness is to halt fermentation before all the naturally present grape sugars have been converted into alcohol. Remember the basic formula for fermentation: Yeast plus sugar equals alcohol plus carbon dioxide. So grapes with an abundance of natural sugar will become even sweeter through the intervention of a winemaker. It is this class of sweet wines I want to address. Lets forget for now about dessert wines which, by virtue of scarcity and laborintensive manufacture, are expensive and, for most, not meant really for daily sipping. For reasons I have not been able to understand, it seems most American wine consumers are turned off by the idea of drinking sweeter-style white wines. Lets look at one of these semi-sweet or semi-dry wines, if you prefer labels which do make for really good drinking regardless of the food match. We start with a country and a grape likely never heard about nor explored. That is an Austrian (not Australian) grape called Grner Veltliner (groo-ner felt-lih-ner). It is Austrias most widely planted variety, some with a pale green tint, crisp, slightly spicy and always wines of the highest quality. The once-obscure grape has risen in reputation in the past 10 years for several reasons: The wines are well made and never flabby or overtly simple. Grner Veltliner is truly food-friendly. Some regard it as a cross between Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, a happy cross indeed. One critic described the finish (swallow) as a subtle rush of white pepper. In Austria, a favorite dish is Wiener schnitzel, veal cutlets coated with bread crumbs and sauted (I love it). Crisp and tender, try some of this wine with fried chicken. It works like a charm and is a yummy combination. Alas, having said all this, it is discomforting to admit that, locally, I have found but one lonely single Grner Veltliner. It is Hopler 2009, priced at $13 and very nice, too. The answer, if anyone wishes to discover this new varietal, is to go online and search away. Dozens in every price range will appear. Readers may explore the offerings (some shipping free) to their hearts content. The answer to last weeks trivia question What is a blind tasting? is the people tasting and at times the exhibitors (double blind) do not know the identity of the wines origin, nor the price range. This kind of session will not influence opinions and lay scoring strictly on participants senses. Oak Ridge resident Ron Drinkhouse was a buyer and seller of wines in his native Connecticut. He welcomes inquiries, and can be reached via email at ronoct9@aol.com or via telephone at 352-445-0328. Ron Drinkhouse WINES & SUCH Sweet or dry taste of wine 2 eggs, lightly beaten 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries 1/2 cup strawberry jelly 1 cup whipped topping Sliced fresh strawberries and additional blueberries, optional Place one phyllo sheet in a greased 9-inch pie plate; brush with butter. Repeat seven times; trim edges. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Bake at 425 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. (Center will puff up). Cool on a wire rack. For filling, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Fold in blueberries. Spoon into crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes; cover edges with foil to prevent overbrowning. Bake 23 to 27 minutes longer or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate until chilled. In a small bowl, beat jelly until smooth; spread over filling. Spread with whipped topping. Garnish with strawberries and additional blueberries if desired. Editors note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter. It take about 20 minutes for prep and 35 minutes to bake, plus chilling.

C4 T HURSDAY, F EBRUARY23, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Just as I was sitting at my desk, preparing to write this column, a sudden squall started outside. A westerly wind picked up to, Im guessing, 40 mph, and the rain came down in sheets. Luckily our vegetation is made to handle this, sometimes having to survive hurricane-force winds during the summer months. After 10 minutes or so, the wind died down again and the rain stopped. At the bridge table, you might walk into an unexpected storm: a bad trump break. In this deal, how should South play in six hearts when East shows up with all five outstanding trumps? West leads the diamond queen. Declarer wins with dummys ace and plays a heart to his jack, West discarding a diamond. Norths two-no-trump response would not meet with universal approval, but it had the huge advantage of telling South it was a slam deal, which two diamonds waiting would not have done. (Two aces opposite an unbalanced two-club opening equals a slam if a fit is found.) Since South has a club loser, he has to draw trumps without loss. But that requires taking two more finesses through East. How can declarer get to the board two more times? At trick three, South must lead a low spade to dummys 10. When the finesse wins (the sun is finally out), he takes a second heart finesse. South returns to dummy with a spade, finesses for a third time in trumps, cashes his top hearts, and claims 12 tricks: four spades, five hearts, one diamond and two clubs.

We get along great except for one thing: her cats. Renee was born with no sense of smell. Shes normally very organized except when it comes to the animals. She forgets to clean the litterbox because she cant smell it, so I have to remind her constantly. The odor can become so unbearable I no longer allow my friends inside. Also, her cats play with their food trays and water dishes and knock everything onto the floor. She never cleans it up. I had to confront her about this because it was attracting bugs. And when the cats throw up, Im the one who ends up cleaning it because I know she wont do it. It is absolutely disgusting. I dont like being confrontational, and Renee is very argumentative. Anytime Ive tried to address this, it falls on deaf ears. Ive managed to survive this long as her roommate, so right now I am simply biding my time until I can move out. However, Renee recently commented she doesnt want me to leave when our lease is up. I wouldnt mind living with her again if she would give up her cats, but I know that isnt going to happen, and Id feel guilty asking her. Renee and I have the same circle of friends, so if I ask around about a new roommate, shell hear, and it would hurt her feelings. I dont want to ruin our friendship, because she truly is a good person and an amazing friend. I just want out of kitty hell. Always Holding My Nose Dear Nose : You have nothing to lose by telling Renee she must take better care of the cats or you are moving out. She can clean the litterbox at regular intervals, whether she smells it or not. And anything that lands on the floor is visible to both of you. She may be an amazing friend, but she is a lousy roommate. Dear Annie : How can I get my husband and his sister to stop scratching and picking at their heads and ears? Its disgusting and looks terrible. They do it at work, too, and its so unprofessional. Tired of Picking Dear Tired : First ask your husband to see his doctor or dermatologist to find out whether he has a scalp condition. If so, there is likely treatment that will alleviate the problem, and it might help your sister-in-law. Otherwise, it would seem to be an ingrained family habit. That means it will be hard to shake, especially if one is unwilling to address it. You have no say over his sisters bad habits, but explain to your husband how off-putting this is, and ask whether hed be willing to work on it. Because he is undoubtedly unaware hes scratching and picking, your job will be to point it out, nicely, every single time you catch him. Dear Annie : I didnt care for your tolerant response to Sad Mom, who paid her son, Mark, $400 to essentially destroy their bathroom. She said he is stubborn and immature and refuses to take advice from anyone. She has reached out to him for more than two years with no response. A good, long shunning should do the trick. If he never comes around, its his loss. If his sister wants to be with her brother so badly, she should call him up and invite him to her place. My husband and I are the parents of a son who means everything to us, but we did not raise him to think the world owes him a living. Mark is ungrateful, and his siblings need to support their parents. Tired of Nasty Children in Wyoming Dear Wyoming: Difficult children are just that and do not always respond in a logical way. Parents must deal with them carefully if they want to maintain any kind of relationship. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

bles right outside your door. Edible landscaping will allow you to create a multi-functional landscape that provides returns (herbs, fruits, vegetables and others) on your investment of water, fertilizer and time. This approach to landscaping may also help you add fresh, healthy foods to your diet and make meal preparation easier. Without the backbone of an integrated design, your edible landscape can be reduced to just another scraggly vegetable patch, so be sure to spend time on the front end. Temper your garden enthusiasm with the knowledge that many edible plants need maintenance and time to harvest, cook, and depending on the size of your harvest, preserve. When getting started with any edible landscape, keep it simple and begin small. Small and lean means you can easily maintain what youve started. Correct placement of new plants is an important consideration since most edible plants need at least six hours of mid-day sun to thrive and produce well. Another important consideration is that annual fruits and vegetables will do best when grown in soil that has good drainage and an abundance of organic matter. Try adding compost to your planting beds this spring. Plant selection is another important factor in ensuring success. Warm season vegetables such as beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, southern peas, peppers, okra, summer and crookneck squashes can all be planted in spring. Carrots and radishes can be planted through March. For starters, consider integrating peppers with a striking backdrop of tall red salvias. Spring is also an ideal time to consider incorporating herbs in your landscapes. Many varieties of herbs make beautiful ground covers when incorporated in an existing landscape. This time of year consider planting anise, basil, sweet basil, borage, cardamom, chervil, coriander, cumin, horehound, lemon balm, lovage, marjoram, mint, oregano, rosemary, sage, summer savory or thyme. Try planting a mixed border of culinary herbs in front of an existing hedge. Many fruit trees easily integrate into a landscape and function in multiple ways as shade and/or flowering trees as well as edibles. Smaller fruiting plants can substitute as shrubbery. Try using a selection of citrus for example, as a screen along a private patio. If space is limited, choose dwarf fruit trees over standard-size trees and select fruit varieties. For those who enjoy the fragrance of spring blossoms and better yet the harvested of tasty fruit, consider growing loquats, peaches, plum, persimmon and blueberries. Edible landscaping made simple Hang pots of herbs on the patio Locate cherry tomatoes in a window box or hanging basket Build a grape arbor Plant colorful pepper varieties alongside flowering annuals Tuck radishes or other short-lived greens into a flowerbed Plant basil together with coleus in a planter Grow chives around the mailbox Growing your own vegetables, fruits and herbs can be rewarding and fun, and the exercise you get in the process can help you stay fit. In an urban environment edible landscaping provides more benefits than just food. Edible landscaping is another component of urban agriculture. Homegrown food is considered by some to be more nutritious than much of the commercially produced food, and growing food locally saves the energy needed to ship it long distances.

G16 Thursday, February 23, 2012C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE O UR T IME GARDEN Continued from Page 15 March gardening tipsWhat to Plant: Annuals: Replace declining winter annuals with varieties that will provide color now and into the summer months, such as celosia, coleus, and impatiens. Bulbs: Plant caladiums for a showy tropical display all summer. Herbs: In addition to their culinary value, many herbs are ornamental and attract butterflies to the garden. Vegetables: If not already started, warm season crops (beans, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and squash) should be planted now for late spring harvest.What to Do: Azaleas: If azaleas need hard pruning to shape or produce a fuller plant, prune just after plants finish blooming. Prune spring flowering trees and shrubs after blooming: To guard next seasons blooms, begin pruning after the last flowers fade but before new buds set. Fertilize lawns: Apply a complete fertilizer to lawns after all danger of frost is past since fertilizing too early can damage the lawn. Prune shrubs and trees when new growth begins: The end of the dormant season is a good time to prune many trees and shrubs. Fertilize palms, azaleas, camellias and ornamental shrubs: Choose a fertilizer based on each plants needs. Irrigation: Now that dry weather is here, check sprinkler systems for efficient use of water.

Could we talk? I love animals. I dont live with any right now, but I have had some very good animal friends in the past. Both my sons and husband will tell you that we had the smartest dogs that ever existed Lacey and Charlie Brown were the best. Im sure that I told you about the time my young sons and I helped our neighbor by burying her dear departed cat. We helped all right. You might recall that in the process we actually dug up her telephone line. Im sure that my sons will let me know that Im using the term we very loosely. Actually, I sort of dug up her phone cable. I guess Im not much help in an animal crisis. Animals are very interesting, dont you think? They are way smarter than we give them credit for. For instance, we knew a man who lived in Yankeetown years ago who owned a dog that would go anywhere with him any time. All his owner had to do was yell out, load up and the dog would jump into his truck. However, there was one exception to this behavior. If the man had too much to drink or the dog even observed him having one or two drinks, it would not get in any vehicle with him. I witnessed this on several occasions. The man would cajole, coax, promise food, try anything to get this dog to go with him, but I promise you that dog would not buy it. Pretty smart, huh? Apparently, the dog wanted a designated driver. Then there was the dog I read about recently who shot his owners friend who lived next door. No, really. The dog shot the neighbor with a shotgun. It seems that his owner, the neighbor and the dog went fishing. It was during duck season so they also took a shotgun with them. Somehow the dog stepped on the trigger and, well, the neighbor wound up with a butt load of buckshot. Accident? I think not. Just try and remember this story the next time you let a dog have access to a loaded weapon! Recently I saw on TV (watching the tube again) the documentary that a man filmed who wanted to live with the bears in Alaska and become one with them. Yes, he filmed the documentary. However, he wasnt able to film the ending. Why, you ask? Well maybe because he literally became part of the bear. The bear did something that is not totally out of character for a wild animal (bears in particular). Lets see, what did the bear do? It ate him. Unfortunately, the gentleman dragged his girlfriend into the wild to help with his animal observation mission, so the bear ate her also. It is unfortunate, but very predictable that hisC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Thursday, February 23, 2012 G3 O UR T IME G14 Thursday, February 23, 2012C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE O UR T IME Sign Language ClassesInstructor for all classes is Sue Paulus. $35 for eight weeks.

EVENTS Continued from Page 13 Special to the Chronicle Art teacher Holly Fisher works recently at East Citrus Community Center with a student, May Glendon. Some animal observations Mary Alice Tillman LETS TALK see Talk Page 5 Dwight Dicks, our homeowners association president, announced at Friday Morning Coffee that since the clubhouse fire there wont be any more dances until the clubhouse has been rebuilt. Speaking of the clubhouse, management says the contractor is complaining about too many sidewalk superintendents that are interfering with the removal of debris. Residents complain that the contractor keeps moving the yellow caution tape further and further from the work site. The contractors complain that the residents keep moving it back. The resident porch dwellers, otherwise known as the Jury, have come up with another one of their famous ideas. In order to make it easier for the residents to keep tabs on the construction they suggested renting bleachers and charging admission. The plan was going as planned until the contractors refused to pay admission. The sheriffs department sent a representative to one of the coffees to discuss phantom drivers. This is different from the phantom cars often found, but never seen at red light traffic signals when the spaces between cars is mysteriously filled with invisible ones. Phantom drivers have become more noticeable since more and more seniors are moving to Florida. As seen from behind it appears that no one is driving the car since all that shows through the rear window is headrests. Occasionally hands can be seen moving the steering wheel. This freaks out other drivers and the sheriffs department has received numerous complaints, so the department is looking into the matter.

Nationwide, one in five Medicare patients is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. Locally, the percentage is much better. At Seven Rivers Regional, we average one in 10. Last year, health care reform was implemented to reduce readmission rates, which cost the health care system billions. The new plan has great potential for improving patient care and saving money. But it will take more than hospitals revamping their policies and procedures. Change of this magnitude requires a team effort between health care professionals and patients. Doctors and clinicians continue to develop advanced care plans and improve communication. Patients are encouraged to ask more questions and get the resources they need to make responsible decisions about their treatment and care. You can help, too. The next time you or someone you know is in the hospital, think about the following: Know what you say; say what you know. Communication is the most important tool you have as a patient. Talk to your doctor. Have your nurse explain your treatment plan. Share your progress with your family. Listen carefully. Ask questions. Repeat instructions back for clarity. And be honest about what you think and feel. Prevent medication mix-ups. Medication problems are a leading cause of readmissions. Doctors need to know about all of your medications (prescription, over-the-counter, vitamins and supplements). The easiest way to share this information is to carry a list in your handbag or wallet. The list needs to include the name of the medicine, the dose and how often it is taken. At the hospital, new medicines may be prescribed. Make sure you get clear written and verbal instructions on what to take, what not to take and when and how to take medicines. If you recognize conflicting information, insist on clarification. Keep your medical appointments. According to research by Stephen Jencks, M.D, published in 2009 in the New England Journal of Medicine, half of patients who returned to the hospital within 30 days did not have a bill for a visit to a doctors office between the time of discharge and re-admission. Many times, a follow-up appointment with your doctor is scheduled while you are in the hospital, or you are asked to make an appointment soon after discharge. Keeping appointments is your responsibility; a very important responsibility. Be honest about your ability to make follow-up appointments while you are in the hospital. Before you are discharged, a resource manager will sit down and talk to you about your concerns. This is the perfect time to address any caregiver or transportation issues that may prevent you from keeping appointments or picking up medications on time.

Someone asked if using a pillow would help, but before the deputy could answer someone else wanted to know if she could sit on her husbands lap while driving. The discussion went on as those who wanted to contribute, well, contributed, until someone noticed that the deputy had left. A group of ladies volunteered to make covers to fit over the headrests so that it would appear that someone taller was driving the car. This idea was quickly put to a vote before everyone forgot what they were voting for. The Ladies Luncheon Club spent a week in Tampa attending an orchid show. This, in itself was nice. However, a repeat of last years incidents may cancel future trips unless the ladies can somehow control their husbands while theyre gone. One person in particular you know who you are outdid himself while shopping at the locale grocery store by putting expensive things into a womans shopping cart. As if this wasnt bad enough, he went home with her. Fortunately, her husband didnt press charges. The same individual explained to the deputy that he thought he recognized someone in the store and got confused when he couldnt remember who it was until someone pointed out that he was looking at a mirror. They bought it this time, Vern. When the other husbands were interviewed about their wives leaving them alone for a week, some responded that this was the only way they could eat what they wanted without being told it wasnt good for them. One thing in common among all of the husbands was that none of them did their own cooking. When asked if they were afraid to use the stove, nearly all replied, Whats a stove? Those of you who hosted the Super Bowl Parties in their homes all had a great time. That is except for the ones who forgot to inform their wives. This might explain why all of those clothes were dumped on the front lawns and carports. The manager from the local bank has closed the drive-through lanes until the cash canisters are returned. He said leaving them at the drive-through pharmacies doesnt count. Until next month, stay healthy. TALKContinued from Page 3 By Beverley Baker Special to the Chronicle Thirty days hath September, April, June and November. These lines are as familiar to most of us as the A,B,Cs. There are a number of versions of the rest of the poem, such as: Of twenty-eight there is but one, All the rest have thirty-one. or Save February, with twenty-eight days clear And twenty-nine in each leap year. or Leap year coming once in four. February then has one day more. Why do we have leap years? The Gregorian calendar now serves as the standard calendar throughout the world. The Gregorian calendar is closely based on the Julian calendar, introduced by Julius Caesar in 45 B.C. A leap year occurs every four years to help synchronize the calendar year with the solar year by adding an intercalary day, which is the day we insert and leap one day forward. Thus, we will add an extra day, Feb. 29, making 2012 a leap year. How many people do you know who were born on Feb 29? I can only think of two, other than myself, plus the boy, Freddie, who was born a few hours before me in Orillia, Ontario, on Feb. 29, 1932. Being first, he received the lions share of the gifts donated by local businesses to celebrate the event. These gifts were coupons for free milk, baby food (Pablum) and baby clothes. Disposable diapers had not yet been invented! I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth but, thanks to one of the merchants, I did receive a silver baby cup to hold in my hand. It even had my name engraved on it. That was the one lasting gift and I still have it among my treasures. Being a leap year baby was something of a hardship to a small child. Birthday parties were few and far between. I do remember the parties at 4, 8, 12 and 16. Then my childhood was over and birthdays became less important. What a long time it seemed between birthdays then and what a short time it seems as I grow older! People ask a lot of questions when they find out that you are a leap year baby. What day do you celebrate in non-leap years? To which I answer, whatever day is most convenient the last day of February or the day after the 28th or not at all. How old are you really? And they come up with the wildest guesses. They dont know whether to divide or multiply by four, which would make me 320 years old this year. Move over, Methuselah! I dont know whether or not the merchants of today offer gifts to leap year babies. I do know that the best gift for me is spending time with my family. I hope it will be a day to remember. And Happy birthday, Freddie, wherever you are. Beverley Baker is a Canadian snowbird who has spent the past 14 winters in Crystal River, enjoying the climate and the friendly community.

fiber carbohydrates for greater health benefits. Whole grains provide greater nutrients than refined ones and high-fiber foods, such as beans, help with glucose response, says Amanda Kirpitch, registered dietitian at Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston. If youre eating more fiber-rich foods, youll also feel full and eat less, Kirpitch says. Visualizing a plate may help with carbohydrate planning, Kirpitch says, and she suggests you imagine half your plate with vegetables, a quarter with protein and a quarter with starch. Select foods that are low in fat and sodium in keeping with new guidelines. Saturated fat, which may increase your LDL cholesterol levels, should be less than 7 percent of your daily caloric intake, according to Smithson, founder of www. diabeteseveryday.com. (Minimize your intake of trans fats as well, say diabetes experts.) Sodium limits have been revised downward to 1,500 milligrams a day if you have diabetes, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. To control your sodium intake, eat fewer processed foods and more fresh fruits and vegetables, says Kirpitch, a certified diabetes educator. Anything that comes in a box or can is more likely to be high in sodium, Kirpitch says.

That is why they are called wild. Let me just say here that there are people who work with wild animals professionally. They perform very valuable research and guess what? They know what they are doing. Its their job. But even those professionals, with all of the precautions, are in danger. So what would make an amateur think for one minute that they could live on the wild side? It wasnt necessary to tell me not to try this at home. Now, I know that I was raised in the country and all that, but most of you know that wild animals are supposed to stay wild, right? I mean, even as a small child I knew better than to play with snakes (ewe! Snakes, dont even get me started on them) or any other, and here is the key word, wild animal. I moved to the river some 13 years ago and I made a deal with the alligators. They stay on their side of the river and I stay on mine. From time to time they can be observed, but Ive never once had the inclination to feed them, swim with them, or even get close enough to talk to them. Call me rude, but I discourage any kind of interaction. Now I hear that the orca whales are suing Sea World for enslavement. No, Im not making that up. Really, they are. Can you believe that? I would say in this case the animals are way smarter than the humans. I would hate to be the person that had to complete the court documents. How in the world (Sea World I guess no pun intended) could you write up that case to bring before the judge and what judge could preside with a straight face? Heres the thing about wild animals. It isnt like we can all sit around the table and listen to them give one of those Cant we all just get along speeches. Nope. There is no room for negotiating. Sooner or later they will eat you. Usually sooner! So my tip of the month is, dont give them a chance (to eat you, that is) and, oh yeah, dont give a dog a loaded weapon. Talk to you later ... Remember, laughter is the best medicine. TALKContinued from Page 3 Resources for job-hunting seniorsDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good resources to help job-hunting seniors? Im 60 years old and have been out of work for nearly six months now and need some help. What can you tell me? Seeking Employment Dear Seeking, The tough employment market over the past few years has been particularly hard on people over the age of 55. Fortunately, there are a number of online tools and in-person training centers scattered across the country today that can help. Heres what you should know. In-person help A good first step to get help finding a job is at a Career OneStop center. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, these are free job resource centers that can help you explore career options, search for jobs, find training, write a resume, prepare for an interview and much more. There are around 3,000 of these centers located throughout the country. To find one near you, call 877-348-0502 or go to careeronestop.org. Depending on your financial situation, another program that may help is the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). Also sponsored by the Department of Labor, SCSEP offers access to training and parttime job placements in a wide variety of community service positions such as day care centers, senior centers, governmental agencies, schools, hospitals, libraries and landscaping centers. To qualify, participants must be over 55, unemployed and earning less than 125 percent of the federal poverty level $13,600 a year. Unfortunately, 2011 federal budget cuts have significantly reduced this program funding, but its still a viable option. To learn more or locate a program in your area visit www.doleta.gov/seniors or call 877-872-5627. In addition to the national resources, some states, communities and local nonprofit organizations may offer their own senior employment programs. For example, in certain areas in Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Washington state and Wisconsin there are Aging Worker Initiative programs to help local job seekers 55 and older. To find out if your community offers any locally based senior employment programs, contact the Area Agency on Aging call 800-6771116 or see www.eldercare.gov to get your local number. AARP WorkSearch Another resource that offers free job help is the AARP Foundation WorkSearch Virtual Job Coach program. This is a volunteer-run program that helps any job-seeker (you dont need to be an AARP member), age 40 and older, by connecting you with a trained volunteer to help you search for jobs and get training. Call 877-659-0969 or visit aarp worksearch.org to find help. In addition, AARP also offers a jobs search engine that you can access at jobs.aarp.org. Or, if you want in-person assistance, AARP has 23 WorkSearch facilities around the country that provide free face-to-face help. To search for a facility, contact your state AARP office. See aarp.org /states or call 888-687-2277 for contact information. Online Resources Theres also a wide array of online employment networks that can help you connect with companies that are interested in hiring older workers. One of the best is retirementjobs.com, which offers a job search engine that lists more than 30,000 jobs nationwide from companies that are actively seeking workers over the age of 50. It also provides job-seeking tips and advice, helps with resume writing and allows you to post your resume online for companies to find you. Some other 50-plus job seeking sites worth a look are seniors4hire.com, workforce50 .com, retiredbrains.com, retireeworkforce.com, wiser worker.com, seniorjobbank.com, enrge.us (a site devoted to retired government employees) and yourencore.com (an online recruitment firm that connects retired scientists, developers and engineers with companies that offer consulting). Start a Business If youre interested in starting a small business but could use some help getting started, turn to the U.S. Small Business Administration which offers tips, tools and free online courses that you can access at sba.gov. Also see score.org a nonprofit association that provides free business advice for entrepreneurs. Jim Miller SAVVY SENIOR DIABETES Continued from Page 10 GO NUTS Nuts can be a delicious, convenient and a healthful addition to your meal plan, say diabetes experts. Substituting 475 calories worth of mixed nuts (about 21/2 ounces) for the same calories in muffins improved glycemic control and LDL cholesterol levels in volunteers with type 2 diabetes in a study in Canada that was recently published in Diabetes Care. I include nuts with my meals, says Toby Smithson, certified diabetes educator. The calorie part adds up, but I replace other ingredients with nuts. Nuts have a pretty high satiety level and a little protein helps you feel full longer.

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Thursday, February 23, 2012 G11 O UR T IME G6 Thursday, February 23, 2012C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE O UR T IME Type 2 diabetes has few age barriersThe disease, which used to develop in older adults, is striking at an earlier age, according to Laurie Higgins, registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator, Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston. Im definitely seeing type 2 diabetes in younger people, says Higgins. Statistics confirm that. During 2002 to 2005, 3,600 youths were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes annually, according to the National Institutes of Health. Receiving a diabetes diagnosis doesnt mean you have to give up your social life. You can still go out on a dinner date, celebrate important occasions with family and even enjoy a resort vacation. Its all about healthy eating, just as it is for the general population, Higgins says. The same techniques that work for anyone trying to eat more nutritiously will help you manage your type 2 diabetes. Here are tips for various situations:Dining out If possible, look at the restaurant menu in advance. Ask for soup or salad while youre waiting for the entre; move the breadbasket to the end of the table, out of your reach. Starchy items, such as rice, pasta and fries, come in very generous portion sizes; share these foods with friends, says Higgins, who works with adolescents and young adults. You can have a drink, preferably with food. It will depend on your medications and how well youre managing your diabetes, Higgins says.Dining in Your relatives probably know and will accommodate your diet needs. But if youre in a new situation, you can always call and ask whats being served and offer to bring a dish or two. If your hosts tend to linger over appetizers bring a healthy snack to tide you over until mealtime.VacationsYou cant be assured of having the food you want, even at a swank resort, but if youre counting carbohydrates, you can stay within your carb budget, according to dietitian Toby Smithson. Maybe you usually have oatmeal, yogurt and fruit for breakfast but the menu doesnt include yogurt.

However, real development arrived after the Civil War with lines eventually becoming of Henry Flaglers Florida East Coast Railroad and Henry Plants Plant System. Later, the Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Air Line railroads built their tracks through Central Florida to the Gulf Coast. In the panhandle, Seaboard built a line west from Jacksonville to River Junction in Chattahoochee where it connected with the Louisville & Nashville Railroad west through Pensacola into Alabama. Also, the Southern Railway System pushed south from Valdosta, Georgia into Jacksonville. Since the Florida Railroad Museum is located in the Gulf Coast area, it focuses on the Plant System and Seaboard Air Line in that region. Henry Plant took over the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railroad and expanded into Tampa to connect with his steamship lines running to Cuba and other destinations. He also built hotels and key locations along this line in the 1890s. In 1900, Henry Plant died and his railroad interests were soon purchased by the Atlantic Coast Line, along with several other acquisitions in Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia. The Atlantic Coast Line made Tampa its major destination on the West Coast with maintenance shops, yards and shipping facilities located there. The ACL Florida main line ran from Jacksonville to Tampa via Orlando, Lakeland and Plant City. The Seaboard Air Line, based in Richmond, Va., was a competitor of the ACL and came to Tampa in 1902, running tracks through Ocala and Plant City before turning west toward Tampa. Seaboard began building branch lines just after the turn of the century to St. Petersburg, Bradenton, Sarasota and Venice. Both railroads also absorbed several short lines until their tracks intertwined throughout this region and laid the groundwork for their eventual merger in 1967, forming the Seaboard Coast Line.

By Bev Bennett CTW Features A patient, newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, came into Tami Rosss office and announced he wasnt going to give up his mini chocolate doughnut for breakfast. That would have been the dietary equivalent of throwing down the gauntlet a few years ago. No more. We no longer have a list of things you have to leave out of your diet, says Ross, registered dietitian and vice president of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. Instead the new message is all foods can fit, says Toby Smithson, registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. But that doesnt give you license to ignore good nutrition. In fact, youll enjoy more choices if you become aware of the nutritional value of what youre eating, while you also reduce your intake of sodium and solid fat to meet new recommendations. Working with your physician and a certified diabetes educator, youll learn the appropriate daily carbohydrate allotment thats right for you. Carbohydrate counting, which is simply calculating the grams of carbohydrates you consume during the day, is one way to stay within your recommended limit. Take that mini chocolate doughnut. You can fit it in. If you know how many grams of carbohydrates the doughnut contains, you can work with your diabetes care professional to include it instead of another carbohydrate as an occasional treat. However, you know that doughnuts shouldnt be on your Top 10 list of carbs.

Barb Harmon has given plenty of her time and has been nominated for the Nature Coast Volunteer Centers Retired and Senior Volunteer Program Presidential Service Award. She is one of five volunteers who have logged more than 4,000 lifetime hours. She focuses her volunteer hours on advocating for the older residents of Citrus County. I have a love for the elderly, she said. I mean we have a county full of them. Harmon made a trip to the Citrus County Family Resource Center in 2010. Although she praised the center for the valuable service they provide for the community, she felt the elderly people in the community were being left out, and it triggered something in her. I saw homeless people being fed a hot meal, she said. And yet there was a group of seniors who werent being fed because there was no money. Our homeless can get a meal easier than our elderly. At that moment is when God spoke to me and said the gift shop had to happen. In 2010 she started the Circle of Friends Gifts, a gift shop at the Central Citrus Resource Center in Lecanto, where all money earned goes to help support the countys home-delivered meals program. She said the countys older population is growing, the cost of meals is going up, but federal grant money stays the same. There were 68 elderly people on the countys home-delivered meals waiting list at last count, she said. And what do you got, she said. Youve got a problem. Harmon has a full schedule when it comes to volunteering to solve the problems of the countys elderly. She volunteers at the gift shop every Friday, and whenever Im needed and thats a lot, she said. She founded CARE (Citizens Accelerated Response to Emergencies) in 2010. It was first funded by a grant from the Citrus County Senior Foundation as emergency, one-time aid for people who are 60 or older and are in need of assistance with utilities, medicine or food. She is one of a few CAREvolunteers that alternate carrying a cell phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They take calls from police, firefighters or qualified professionals who find people in a crisis situation. On Tuesdays she volunteers on the Seniors vs. Crime desk in Beverly Plaza in Beverly Hills. The program is a project sponsored by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and the Florida Attorney Generals Office to assist people of all ages who feel they have been a victim of a scam or unfair business deal. She mans the phones fielding calls and sorting out complaints and problems to determine if they are civil or criminal. She has worked there since its inception in July 2002. As I told her, she doesnt have enough room on her plate for salt and pepper, said Don Moran, senior affairs coordinator for the sheriffs office and Seniors vs.. Crime director. Every other Wednesday she volunteers as a mediator in Citrus Countys civil and small claims court for Judge Mark Yerman. She earned her mediation certification from the Supreme Court of Florida and has given her time in Citrus courts since 2004. She has served on the board of directors for the Friends of the Community Centers since 2006, and she is also treasurer for the organization. The Friends is an advisory group of caring volunteers aimed at improving and advancing the conditions of our county community centers. The Friends group also runs the gift shop. In addition, each Monday she finds time to teach a greeting card-making class at the Central Citrus Senior Center. Ive been very blessed, she added. And I feel like this is a way of giving back. Laurie Diestler, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) project coordinator, said its wonderful to have volunteers who are so dedicated. She said the other four award recipients are: Betty Lewis, Mary Mudd, Sharon Padgett and Casimir Wyzgowski. I think what drives her (Harmon) and the other volunteers, they know that they are making a difference in someones life, Diestler said. They give without expecting anything. Thats what makes the volunteer group work. Diestler said people volunteer for various reasons. A lot (volunteer) to keep active, to keep connected to the community or for the satisfaction of helping someone else, she said. The RSVP program was started in Citrus County in 1989 to provide volunteer opportunities for people 55 and older who have a variety of knowledge, experience and interests from all economic, social and educational backgrounds.

Im definitely seeing type 2 diabetes in younger people, says Higgins. Statistics confirm that. During 2002 to 2005, 3,600 youths were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes annually, according to the National Institutes of Health. Receiving a diabetes diagnosis doesnt mean you have to give up your social life. You can still go out on a dinner date, celebrate important occasions with family and even enjoy a resort vacation. Its all about healthy eating, just as it is for the general population, Higgins says. The same techniques that work for anyone trying to eat more nutritiously will help you manage your type 2 diabetes. Here are tips for various situations:Dining out If possible, look at the restaurant menu in advance. Ask for soup or salad while youre waiting for the entre; move the breadbasket to the end of the table, out of your reach. Starchy items, such as rice, pasta and fries, come in very generous portion sizes; share these foods with friends, says Higgins, who works with adolescents and young adults. You can have a drink, preferably with food. It will depend on your medications and how well youre managing your diabetes, Higgins says.Dining in Your relatives probably know and will accommodate your diet needs. But if youre in a new situation, you can always call and ask whats being served and offer to bring a dish or two. If your hosts tend to linger over appetizers bring a healthy snack to tide you over until mealtime.VacationsYou cant be assured of having the food you want, even at a swank resort, but if youre counting carbohydrates, you can stay within your carb budget, according to dietitian Toby Smithson. Maybe you usually have oatmeal, yogurt and fruit for breakfast but the menu doesnt include yogurt. You can switch to two servings of oatmeal or two servings of fruit and one of oatmeal, says Smithson.

fiber carbohydrates for greater health benefits. Whole grains provide greater nutrients than refined ones and high-fiber foods, such as beans, help with glucose response, says Amanda Kirpitch, registered dietitian at Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston. If youre eating more fiber-rich foods, youll also feel full and eat less, Kirpitch says. Visualizing a plate may help with carbohydrate planning, Kirpitch says, and she suggests you imagine half your plate with vegetables, a quarter with protein and a quarter with starch. Select foods that are low in fat and sodium in keeping with new guidelines. Saturated fat, which may increase your LDL cholesterol levels, should be less than 7 percent of your daily caloric intake, according to Smithson, founder of www. diabeteseveryday.com. (Minimize your intake of trans fats as well, say diabetes experts.) Sodium limits have been revised downward to 1,500 milligrams a day if you have diabetes, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. To control your sodium intake, eat fewer processed foods and more fresh fruits and vegetables, says Kirpitch, a certified diabetes educator. Anything that comes in a box or can is more likely to be high in sodium, Kirpitch says.

That is why they are called wild. Let me just say here that there are people who work with wild animals professionally. They perform very valuable research and guess what? They know what they are doing. Its their job. But even those professionals, with all of the precautions, are in danger. So what would make an amateur think for one minute that they could live on the wild side? It wasnt necessary to tell me not to try this at home. Now, I know that I was raised in the country and all that, but most of you know that wild animals are supposed to stay wild, right? I mean, even as a small child I knew better than to play with snakes (ewe! Snakes, dont even get me started on them) or any other, and here is the key word, wild animal. I moved to the river some 13 years ago and I made a deal with the alligators. They stay on their side of the river and I stay on mine. From time to time they can be observed, but Ive never once had the inclination to feed them, swim with them, or even get close enough to talk to them. Call me rude, but I discourage any kind of interaction. Now I hear that the orca whales are suing Sea World for enslavement. No, Im not making that up. Really, they are. Can you believe that? I would say in this case the animals are way smarter than the humans. I would hate to be the person that had to complete the court documents. How in the world (Sea World I guess no pun intended) could you write up that case to bring before the judge and what judge could preside with a straight face? Heres the thing about wild animals. It isnt like we can all sit around the table and listen to them give one of those Cant we all just get along speeches. Nope. There is no room for negotiating. Sooner or later they will eat you. Usually sooner! So my tip of the month is, dont give them a chance (to eat you, that is) and, oh yeah, dont give a dog a loaded weapon. Talk to you later ... Remember, laughter is the best medicine. TALKContinued from Page 3 Resources for job-hunting seniorsDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good resources to help job-hunting seniors? Im 60 years old and have been out of work for nearly six months now and need some help. What can you tell me? Seeking Employment Dear Seeking, The tough employment market over the past few years has been particularly hard on people over the age of 55. Fortunately, there are a number of online tools and in-person training centers scattered across the country today that can help. Heres what you should know. In-person help A good first step to get help finding a job is at a Career OneStop center. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, these are free job resource centers that can help you explore career options, search for jobs, find training, write a resume, prepare for an interview and much more. There are around 3,000 of these centers located throughout the country. To find one near you, call 877-348-0502 or go to careeronestop.org. Depending on your financial situation, another program that may help is the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). Also sponsored by the Department of Labor, SCSEP offers access to training and parttime job placements in a wide variety of community service positions such as day care centers, senior centers, governmental agencies, schools, hospitals, libraries and landscaping centers. To qualify, participants must be over 55, unemployed and earning less than 125 percent of the federal poverty level $13,600 a year. Unfortunately, 2011 federal budget cuts have significantly reduced this program funding, but its still a viable option. To learn more or locate a program in your area visit www.doleta.gov/seniors or call 877-872-5627. In addition to the national resources, some states, communities and local nonprofit organizations may offer their own senior employment programs. For example, in certain areas in Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont, Washington state and Wisconsin there are Aging Worker Initiative programs to help local job seekers 55 and older. To find out if your community offers any locally based senior employment programs, contact the Area Agency on Aging call 800-6771116 or see www.eldercare.gov to get your local number.
