Its a very positive event for Citrus County, for businesses located here or businesses that want to expand at the airport business park, and it will be a tool in our tool kit that we can offer for companies that want to expand or move here, said John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council (EDC). Its another way to create jobs. According to State Sen. Charles Dean (R-Inverness) in his weekly newsletter, The Dean Document: The Senate Budget Subcommittee on Finance and Tax voted Senate Bill 806 favorably by a 4-0 vote on Thursday. Dean sponsored the bill which, if passed, would allow Citrus County to apply to the Department of Economic Opportunity for an enterprise zone, a commerce area that encourages businesses in blighted or economically depressed communities by offering a combination of state and local business incentives. If passed, this bill would place Citrus County on the same playing field with counties in its area including Hernando, Levy, Marion and Sumter, according to Dean. All the surrounding counties have enterprise zones, but, by some oversight, Citrus does not. The state has about 450 enterprise zones throughout the state and it grants certain tax exemptions and preferential treatment, Siefert told the Chronicle Citrus never applied for one and so when we applied last year, and I was getting into the job (directing the EDC), I found out that theres a cap on it and the only way you can get the Proposed law aims to lure business Measure to set up Citrus County enterprise zone before state lawmakers See ZONE / Page A5 N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterFLORAL CITY As Jimmie Knight walked through what once was her kitchen in the historic Jont Knight house on Orange Avenue in Floral City, someone warned the 94-year-old about a step coming up. She laughed and said, I know where all the steps up and steps down are in this house. We had one lady who fell and broke her arm. The house is now home to the Florida Artists Gallery, owned by local artist Ann Covington. On Saturday, Mrs. Knight had come to visit the house she lived in for more than 40 years. Currently, Mrs. Knight lives in Fort Myers, as does her daughter, Hattie Lou Smith. Her other daughter, Janet Knight Schol, lives in Gainesville. The sisters, their husbands and a few assorted cousins and a grandson all came to Floral City to celebrate Mrs. Knights birthday and to revisit the house. They also met with members of the Floral City Heritage Council who were eager to hear stories of the historic house. I painted the whole house myself when I lived here, Mrs. Knight said. I started across the back, and people said, Whyd you start in the back? I said, Well, if it turned out I couldnt do it, it wouldnt show. But I painted it all the way around. It took me a year. Jonathan Jont Knight and his wife, Flora Belle Reid Knight, bought the house in 1905. Back then, it was one structure, a small house with a wrap-around porch and a breezeway. Knight, who worked at the turpentine stills in Brooksville, brought two other additions to the house from the stills in Brooksville, creating one big house in three parts. Mama came to Florida with Daddy for a visit in 1935, around Labor Day, said Janet Schol. Hattie was just a baby. They stopped in Live Oak and there was a hurricane that came up from the Keys. They stayed with some of Daddys family and Mama used to tell about the rain coming down through the chimney and onto the hearth. That was Mamas first visit to Florida, and she didnt like it much. As best as Mrs. Knight can recall, they came back to Florida from Arkansas in 1946, and moved into the family home. Her husband had become ill and needed to make a life change. Young Hattie Lou, then 11, shared a bedroom with her aunt, Merle Tillman. Knight said she remembers a tiny closet, only about 2 by 4 feet, with a tiny door, and how anything put in there seemed to disappear.

On the eve of a Michigan showdown, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum swapped insults Monday in a struggle for the Republican presidential nomination growing so long and heated that party officials fretted openly it could harm prospects for winning the White House this fall. On this day, the subject was their competing plans for the economy. Senator Santorum is a nice guy, but hes never had a job in the private sector, Romney said as he and his closest rival charged across the state in a final day of pre-primary campaigning.

F O G TUESDAY No settlement in CMH case A proposed agreement that could have led to the settlement of all legal issues in the Citrus Memorial hospital dispute was rejected Monday night by the hospital foundation board of directors. CMH attorneys Jim Kennedy and Clark Stillwell said the proposal from Citrus County Hospital Board attorney Bill Grant had changed substantially since attorneys met Thursday to hammer out a proposal. Kennedy and Stillwell said they left that Thursday meeting with a proposal worthy of foundation discussion. It would have sent both sides to mediation for 90 days in the hopes of settling the many legal disputes. After 90 days without an agreement, the foundation could have pursued an appeal of a circuit courts ruling that upholds a state law giving the board of trustees oversight of the hospital, Stillwell said. Grants proposal, delivered to Stillwell on Monday afternoon, would have required the foundation to drop the appeal if both sides did not reach agreement after 90 days. It also would have forced the foundation to seek trustees approval for any expenditures of more than $50,000 during that period. The foundation met in closed session for more than an hour to discuss the settlement. When they reconvened, directors adjourned the meeting without a motion or vote. An appeals court has issued a stay in the case and could decide as early as Wednesday whether to continue the stay or lift it. The hospital board meets at 8 a.m. today in Inverness. by staff writer Mike Wright NEWS BRIEF

There is also a login required to leave comments to stories, but a reporter was unable to set up a login user name and password. County spokes woman Lindsay Ubinas said she would look into that. The county registered the domain in September. It budgeted $5,000 this year for Web design and hosting. County commissioners began meeting as a Citrus County Port Authority in July. Its membership is the same as the county commission with one difference: The port chairman is a twoyear appointment while the commissioners change chairpersons every year. That means Commissioner Dennis Damato continues as port authority chairman until July 2013 unless he is not re-elected this year while Commissioner Winn Webb is the commission chairman. Damato has criticized Port Citrus opponents as being misinformed. He said Monday the web site should help in that regard. Theres a lot of good information on the web site, he said. Im glad its up. The web site includes: Photos of the Cross Florida Barge Canal and the key cut where a barge dock exists on property owned by Dixie Hollins. While the port study area includes land on both sides of the canal, Citrus County officials acknowledge the Hollins property is the best fit because of the key cut. Photos of the Panama Canal. The canal is undergoing a significant widening project that is slated for completion in 2014 or 2015. Officials believe that will have significant impact in Floridas ports and could create barge business for Port Citrus.

A list of frequently asked questions, such as: How do they plan to dredge the canal? Answer: There are no plans to dredge the canal. Development of the port will be directed to those companies that utilize vessels or barges than can safely navigate within the current depth of 12 to 15 feet. This depth will not accommodate cruise ships or other large and deep-draft vessels such as the postPanamax ships. The predominant clients will likely be barge-based operations.

The ubiquitous polls showed a close race in Michigan, where Romney was born and won a primary in his first bid for the White House four years ago. Santorum surged unexpectedly into contention two weeks ago, benefiting from caucus victories in Minnesota and Colorado and stressing unflinching conservative views on social issues. No matter the winner, the two men stand to split the 30 delegates at stake. By contrast, Romney is favored to capture Arizona and all 29 delegates in the nights other primary. There, the campaigning has been scarce and the television commercials ever scarcer, sure signs that Romneys rivals have scant hope of an upset. Though its an important prize, Michigan is also prelude to Washington caucuses on Saturday, with 40 delegates at stake, and especially Super Tuesday on March 6, when 10 primaries and caucuses are on the ballot with 419 delegates. Romney currently has 123 delegates to 72 for Santorum, 32 for Gingrich and 19 for Paul in the Associated Press count, with 1,144 required to win the party nomination this summer at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Fifty of Romneys delegates were the result of a winner-take-all primary in Florida, meaning that Santorum is nearly even with him elsewhere. After Arizona, nearly all the remaining states will split their delegates based on the popular vote, making it harder for any candidate to shut out his rivals. As a result, Republican governors attending the National Governors Association conference in Washington over the weekend expressed concern about the impact of a long race on their partys chances for defeating President Barack Obama. I dont know anybody who thinks if you started out to design a good process to pick a president youd choose exactly what we have now, said Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels. Gov. Paul LePage of Maine, a Republican elected with tea party support in 2010, said, If they continue to beat each other up, then maybe we should get somebody unknown to go against Obama. Theyre damaging themselves. Its like a marital battle, he added. Somebodys got to apologize. There seemed no chance of that happening in Michigan, where Romney and Santorum battled at close quarters for supremacy in the first of the nations big industrial states to hold a primary. Santorum got an early jump on the day with an oped article in The Wall Street Journal where he outlined a plan he said would cut taxes, spending and benefit programs while balancing the federal budget before the end of a four-year term. He said Romneys recent call for across-the-board income tax cuts was a lastminute conversion that merely copied his own proposals with a big difference. Borrowing the language of Occupy Wall Street, (he) promises the top 1 percent will pay for the cuts. No progrowth tax policy there, just more Obama-style class warfare, he wrote. Romney returned the insult as he campaigned in Rockford, Mich. Im glad he recognizes this has got to be a campaign about the economy, he said, a jab at Santorums frequent stress on social issues. Ive spent 25 years in business. I understand why jobs go, why they come, I understand what happens to corporate profit, where it goes if the government takes it. This is what Ive done throughout my life. In fact, both men have struggled to find a campaign balance between economic issues that affect most if not all voters in a state of 9 percent unemployment, and social issues that are typically of greater concern to conservative voters. Romney has twice appeared before tea party audiences in the past several days, hoping to forge a bond with the insurgents who have helped reshape the Republican party in the state. For his part, Santorum went before the Detroit Economic Club hardly a natural fit for him in pursuit of a victory that could upend the race. Not that he was ignoring other matters in the final hours of his Michigan campaign. Campaigning in Livonia, he said that Romney, as governor Massachusetts, had taken the side of more government control over individuals lives on several issues, effectively lining up with Obama. Associated PressDETROIT Ron Paul brought his limited-government message to the Democratic stronghold of Detroit on the eve of the Michigan Republican presidential primary, where he hoped to continue his strategy of earning delegates in states that hold non-winner-take-all nominating contests. Polls show Paul and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich trailing front-runners Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum ahead of Tuesdays primary. But the Texas congressman said after Mondays event at Little Rock Baptist Church that his goal is to whittle away at the total number of delegates available. Paul hasnt won any states early in the primary season, but the idea is to amass delegates and earn a significant role in the Republican Partys national convention this summer. About 2,000 students cheered him at a Monday afternoon rally at Michigan State University in East Lansing. Lauren Kubert, a 19-year-old sophomore from Novi, said she was excited to cast her first-ever vote for Paul on Tuesday. So far I like everything that he stands for, she said. Students loudly chanted President Paul! and End the Fed! several times during Pauls speech in a packed auditorium. The candidate planned a stop Monday evening in Dearborn to wrap up his threeday swing through the state. Paul said he was proud of his decision to stop in Detroit, which has not traditionally been a destination point for his fellow GOP presidential hopefuls. Everybody knows Im not a conventional Republican, he said. Thats precisely why Paul Sherbeck, a retired middle school math teacher, showed up for the event. Hes like a rock star, the 57-year-old from suburban Northville said of Paul, whom Sherbeck said attracts supporters via his message of economic and personal freedom. GOP Continued from Page A1 Paul holds Detroit rally Associated PressNASHVILLE Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on Monday slammed rival Rick Santorum as a big labor Republican, accusing him of siding with unions over Memphisbased FedEx when the Senate grappled with a labor dispute in the 1990s. Gingrich, the former Georgia congressman and House Speaker, is hoping to revive his struggling campaign in the South, and he tailored his message Monday to Republican voters in Tennessee. Although polls show a close race between Santorum and Mitt Romney, Gingrich challenged the former Pennsylvania senator and his conservative credentials. I think there are profound reasons that Rick lost the Senate race by the largest margin in Pennsylvania history in 2006 and I think its very hard for him to carry that all the way to the general, Gingrich said. Bypassing Michigan and Arizona, the other primary on Tuesday, Gingrich said voters in Tennessee and his home state of Georgia could rejuvenate his presidential bid. The former House speaker said a handful of states voting on the megacontest day of March 6 could propel him to wins in Mississippi and Alabama. Then all of the sudden, the same media which said I was dead in the fall, I was ahead in December, I was dead in early January, I was ahead in mid-January, all of the sudden theyre going to say ... Gingrich will be back again, he said during a luncheon with local Republicans. Gingrich stumps in Tennessee Slams rival Santorum as a big labor Republican

Loxahatchee Big cats taken from former Tarzans homeAuthorities said two tigers and a panther are being removed from the home of a former Tarzan actor near West Palm Beach. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino told the Palm Beach Post that Steve Sipek was arrested early Monday on misdemeanor charges of possessing Class 1 animals without a USDA permit and keeping the animal as a pet. Tigers and panthers are classified as Class 1 animals because they pose significant danger to people. Agency spokeswoman Carli Segelson did not know where the animals were taken or why the license was revoked. It isnt the first time Sipek has been in the news because of his animals. In 2004, his 600-pound tiger named Bobo was shot and killed after it escaped from Sipeks home.TallahasseeHealth dept. overhaul clears final panel A bill now heads to the House floor that makes changes to the state Department of Health though without its most contentious provision that would have shifted public-health responsibilities from the state to the counties.

From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE CR code enforcement streamlined A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The City Council voted unanimously Monday to both streamline the citys code enforcement mechanism and add more bite to it. Gone are the days of piles of citations and fines that are either ignored or unpaid. From now on, according to City Manager Andy Houston, code violators will be brought before a hearing officer sooner rather than later so their cases can be disposed of in a timely manner. And, according to the new ordinance, liens and foreclosures can be attached to the violators property if they fail to follow the codes. According to the resolution passed by the city panel, the purpose of the new mechanism is to promote, protect, and improve the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the city of Crystal River by providing an equitable, expeditious, effective, and inexpensive method of enforcing any codes and ordinances where a pending or repeated violation continues to exist. The following are some of the ground rules: If a code inspector finds and confirms a code violation, the inspector will contact the violator in person, by phone or leave a notice at the property or certified mail. The violator will have two weeks to come into compliance. According the new law, a property owner may request additional time, but granting the additional time is at the discretion of the code inspector or the city manager. The inspector will perform a re-inspection after the allowed time to remedy the violation. If the violation has been corrected, the case will be considered closed or shown as being in compliance. If the reinspection finds no change, then a notice of violation willbe prepared and sent by certified mail or hand delivered, allowing time for compliance. Failure to comply with the notice will result in the property owner being scheduled to appear before the hearing officer. The hearing officer may provide additional time for compliance before commencing with a daily fine. Compliance is required to stop the daily fines. If the fine is not paid, a lien will be placed on the property of the violator. In other matters: The city passed on first reading a motion to designate areas around Whetstone Oil Company on U.S. 19 as industrial. The immediate area around the 1.8-acre property has been residential and commercial zones. The city approved a contract with DragonWorks for $15,000 to handle the Fourth of July fireworks. Andy Houston said code violators will be dealt with swiftly Bowling buddies Game of ten pins unites women N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS Even at age 95 3/4, girls just want to have fun. For Helen Reeser, who has been bowling every Monday morning at Beverly Hills Bowl, its all about the fun. Reeser, along with three other women in their 80s and 90s, are the founding members of the Classy Lassies bowling league. You dont have to be a good bowler, Reeser said. In fact, its not really about the bowling. Mostly, its about the camaraderie and the friendship. Its about the older ones being mom to the younger ones. Its about being there for each other as they deal with sick and dying husbands, with losing their own mothers, with facing their own ailments and diseases. In between, they bowl. On Monday, Reeser threw her 9-pound purple-and-pinkswirled ball and said, Were losing, but we dont mind. We call it a fun league, said Jean Wrijil, also an original Classy Lassie. Were not out for blood. As the women chattered and hugged and put their arms around each other, the stories came out. League president Maggie Homrighouse said in the past year and a half shes lost her husband and her mother. These girls did a prayer group and were at my mothers wake, she said. The support you need, its here. They treat me like a daughter. Theyre all my daughters, Reeser said. She began bowling after her husband died in 1990. They had come from Northeastern Ohio where Mrs. Reeser grew up on a farm. In high school, she played basketball. One day, the man who would be her husband saw her playing and asked, Whos that girl? She helped win the county championship and was named MVP said her daughter Darlene Reeser. At 60, Reeser played coed volleyball. Shes always been athletic, Darlene Reeser said. The couple moved to Beverly Hills 30 years ago. Night and day Reeser cared for her husband, who had Parkinsons disease and dementia. When he died, Reeser told her daughter, Give me a year and a half. That was her time to grieve and re-adjust. After that, she volunteered at Citrus Memorial hospital and started bowling on Mondays. Every Monday, Reeser said. I dont miss many. Her daughter said she has watched her mother and the other Classy Lassies and has marveled at the way they bond. My mother loves these Monday mornings, and these women all love her, she said. Ive heard them say, Youre such an inspiration, and they all pull for her so much and they support each other through thick and thin. On Mondays, Helen Reeser pins her good luck bowling pin charm on her shirt and puts on her white leather Dexter brand bowling shoes that she got in Detroit. She said the secret to bowling is controlling your fingers. Her team is the Thirty-Niners. She bowls a 106 average, which she says is not very good. Reeser said shes concerned because theyve lost some of the league members over the years and need more. She said maybe a story in the paper will help. Its healthy, fun exercise, she said. Any woman whos old and has nothing to do should come down and join us. For information, call Beverly Hills Bowl at 352-527-1200.

She rolled a 114 to top the other three ladies on her team during the game. Special to the ChronicleCitrus County Utilities will be smoke-testing the sewer system along streets around the Halls River Rd. area on Wednesday, Feb. 29, and Thursday, March 1, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. This is done periodically to locate sources of sewer odors, leaks and breaks in sewer lines. The type of smoke used is harmless to plants and animals and leaves no residues or stains; it is white to yellowishwhite in color, and may have a slight odor. Prior to testing, make sure the p-traps of all sinks, toilets and other plumbing fixtures have water in them by pouring a small amount of water into the drain of any unused fixture. During the testing, you may notice smoke outside your home or building sewer vents, gutters, downspouts, or the ground along the sewer line. Inside the home or building you may notice some smoke or odor coming out of the plumbing fixtures, which may indicate a leak. While Citrus County Utilities will resolve issues outside the property line, the correction of any defects in the pipes and sewer on private property is the responsibility of the home or building owner. If smoke gets into your house or building, ventilate the area and contact the utilities office at 352527-7650. Some frequently asked questions: Q: Do I have to be at my residence when the testing is done? A: No, the testing is done in the system outside your home. Q: How can I keep the smoke from appearing in my house? A: Make sure the p-traps of all sinks, toilets and other plumbing fixtures have water in them. Pour water into the drain of any unused fixture for a couple of minutes to ensure there is water in the traps. This will force the smoke to exit out of the roof top vent. Q: How will the smoke testing be performed? A: Citrus County Utilities will use a special machine to blow smoke in the sanitary sewer manholes. The smoke travels through the system and escapes by rising through the opening. The rising smoke will show the testing team the locations of potential problems. Q: What is storm water? A: Storm water is a term used to refer to rain water or irrigation water that flows into the sanitary sewer system. The flow burdens the sewer treatment facilities and should be handled by storm drains, retention ponds and natural runoff. Q: What is smoke testing? A: Smoke testing is a commonly used method to test for stormwater entry into the sewer systems. Q: What should I do if smoke appears inside my house? A: Contact any member of the Citrus County utilities testing team working on your street, or call the utilities main office at 352-5277650. Q: Why do we need to test the sanitary sewer lines? A: Citrus County Utilities wants to decrease cost and help the sanitary sewer system work more efficiently by identifying sources of stormwater entry into the system. Q: Will it come through my sprinkler system into my house? A: No. Q: Will it make my water have a funny taste? A: No. Q: Will the smoke enter my home? A: Smoke will not appear inside your home unless there are dry fixtures or problems with your system. Q: Will the smoke stay in my house for a long time? A: The smoke disappears quickly. To make it disappear faster, open a window or outside door near the smoky area. Citrus County Utilities will be testing the following streets: Halls River Road (from 10652-10200) W. Lenz Lane S.

Senate panel clears foreclosure billA Senate panel on Monday cleared a bill that aims to speed up the states mortgage foreclosure process, which immediately resulted in jeers from an angry crowd of foreclosure victims. The Senate Banking and Insurance Committee OKd the bill (SB 1890) by a 6-4 vote with some crossing of party lines. Republican Sen. Mike Fasano of New Port Richey voted against the measure, for example, and Democratic Sen. Chris Smith of Fort Lauderdale voted for it. After the vote, foreclosed homeowners from around the state harangued the panel, yelling we got stonewalled and this Legislature is a sham. One woman nearly collapsed into a security officers arms, saying she thought she was having a panic attack. Homeownership is the American dream, said Lynn Drysdale, a Jacksonville Area Legal Aid attorney who represents foreclosure clients. Asked to to explain the emotions at Mondays hearing, Drysdale added that these homeowners feel that their rights are being diminished. The part causing the most distress to opponents is a section that provides for a special court hearing that would more easily speed a property into foreclosure. Committee chair Garrett Richter responded afterward to charges that he was rushing the bill, sponsored by Republican Sen. Jack Latvala of St. Petersburg, despite concerns from some foreclosed homeowners that it trampled on their rights. The bill will have continued debate on the floor of the Senate, the Naples Republican said. Quite frankly, weve got less than two weeks to go in session and I think this is legislation that this Legislature needs to address and advance. But as Sen. Steve Oelrich, a former Alachua County sheriff, earlier told his colleagues, I dont mind being the sheriff, but I dont want to be the sheriff of Nottingham. State might use medical loss ratio after all For months, Republican lawmakers resisted the idea. But Monday, a House committee acknowledged that the federal government likely will require Florida to set a minimum standard for how much money Medicaid HMOs spend on medical care. The House Health & Human Services Committee approved a bill that allows the state Agency for Health Care Administration to use what is known as a medical loss ratio, as Florida seeks federal approval of a proposal to enroll almost all Medicaid beneficiaries in managed-care plans. Federal officials in December already required such a ratio when they approved an extension until June 2014 of a Medicaid managed-care pilot program in Broward, Duval, Clay, Baker and Nassau counties. That would require managed-care plans to spend 85 percent of the money they receive on medical care. The Republican-dominated Legislature last year rejected the notion of a medicalloss ratio as it passed a plan to expand mandatory managed care statewide. But HB 727, which the committee approved Monday in an 11-6 vote, would allow AHCA to set a medical-loss ratio if required as a condition of federal approval for the statewide managed-care system. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Flori da lawmakers have sharply reduced compensation in a claims bill for a Colorado boy who suffered catastrophic injuries due to negligence by a public hospital where he was born in Fort Myers. The Senate Rules Commit tee on Monday also approved a claims bill that would let the city of Tallahassee pay $2.4 million to the parents of an undercover police informant who was murdered in a botched drug sting. The panel reduced to $15 million a proposed $30.8 million payment that a jury awarded to 14-year-old Aaron Edwards for negligence by Lee Memorial Health System. A House committee last week voted for an even lower figure of $10 million. Sen. Anitere Flores, a Miami Republican who is sponsoring the Senate version (SB 10), was encouraged, though, because the House companion (HB 965) was advancing in that chamber after failing to act last year on a bill that would have paid Aaron $13 million. She said she was confident that the chambers could agree on a figure between $10 million and $15 million. I dont want to say that Im disappointed, but I do know that the jury was correct, said Aarons mother, Mitzi Roden. I can only hope that at the end of all this, my son gets what is going to help him. The money will be used to buy an annuity so Aaron will have enough money for therapy and around-theclock care the rest of his life. Roden currently provides that care, even taking him with her to a shop where she works as a pet groomer. Aaron, who now lives with his mother in Canyon City, Colo., suffers from cerebral palsy, spasticity and other disabilities, the result of brain damage due to overdoses of Pitocen, a drug his mother received to induce labor over her objections. Aaron is very bright but is confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak or use his arms and legs.He can communicate with his eyes through a computer similar to whats used by British scientist Stephen Hawking. Imagine being in a wheelchair for life, Aaron told lawmakers in a Hawking-like electronic voice. I am living that. Please pass my bill. The hospital system for the first time Monday offered to pay $5 million over a span of five years, but the Senate panel rejected that proposal. Flores argued that figure would be insufficient. She noted a jury awarded $31 million and that verdict was affirmed by an appellate court. Florida law limits claims against state and local governments to $200,000, which is all Aaron and his mother have received so far, without the Legislatures approval.

Legislature to give you a new enterprise zone is to have them pass legislation. Siefert said he did not know why the county had not applied for an enterprise zone before. By the time I got involved in the EDC, all 450 enterprise zones had been assigned, Siefert said. The enterprise zone request dates back to last years legislative roundtable workshop Dean held with the Citrus County Business Resource Alliance, which includes the EDC and other business representatives. The enterprise zone was on a list of action items compiled by the alliance, which included establishing Port Citrus and completing the Suncoast Parkway II. Both Dean and State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith (R-Inverness) started bills in the Senate and House. Smith is among the sponsors of House Bill 7087, a combined bill for economic development that authorizes designation of enterprise zones in both Citrus and Charlotte counties. HB 7087 has passed through the House and moved on to the Senate. Siefert said the center of the enterprise zone will be the Inverness Airport Business Park and include an area of 20 square miles around it. The Enterprise Zone Program was established in 1982. It is administered by the governors Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development (OTTED), which oversees activities and provides technical assistance and information. Enterprise Florida markets the program to businesses and proposes legislation to improve the program. It works with OTTED to develop zone approval guidelines and determine qualifications. Taking part in the Enterprise Zone Program makes businesses within them eligible for a number of benefits and incentives, provided they apply within a specified filing period. Statewide incentives include: Allowing a business within the zone to take a sales and use tax credit for a percentage of wages paid to new employees. Allowing a business within the zone to take a corporate income tax credit for a percentage of wages paid to new employees. Refunding sales taxes paid on the purchase of certain business property. Refunding sales taxes paid on the purchase of building materials used to rehabilitate real property in the zone. Allowing new or expanded businesses within the zone a credit against Florida corporate income tax. Allowing credit on Florida corporate income tax, insurance premium tax or sales tax refund for donations to community development projects. Providing an exemption from ad valorem property tax for licensed child care facilities operating in zones. These incentives will be over and above the incentives that the EDC presently offer, Siefert said. The EDC has incentives that deal with county property taxes and county tangible taxes. The enterprise zone can add to those county incentives with incentives that include state sales taxes and state business tax. They work together and it increases the power of what a business can plan on receiving. If passed, the law would become effective July 1, and the county would have an application deadline of Dec. 31 to set up the zone.

Whenever Hattie Lou went out on a date, her mother would go around and lock every door so Hattie would have to ring the bell when she came home. Smith said she always found one that her mother forgot to lock. Keeping warm in winter was always a problem, Smith said. For the first few years, we had no water heater and had to heat water for bathing in a foot tub in the kitchen and transfer it to the tub in the bathroom four rooms away. Mrs. Knight worked at Jim and Stella Loves grocery store and later managed the lunch room at Floral City Elementary School. Her husband ran a prison camp out on County Road 48 near Bushnell. When Jont Knight died in 1954, his sister, who had inherited the house from their parents, deeded the house to Mrs. Knight, who was only 37 at the time. She lived in the house until about 25 years ago, when she moved to Fort Myers. Saturday, as Mrs. Knight walked from room to room, she pointed out her dining room, now an art classroom, and her living room, now a gallery. Her bedroom is now a showcase for jewelry. Walls are gone; so is a hallway. The kitchen sink used to be against the windows, with the stove to the left. Everything in the kitchen is different now. But the frosted etched glass door at the front of the house is still the same, she noted. Everyone always loved that door, she said. Outside, Mrs. Knight pointed out the mulberry tree out front that was old back when she lived at the house, and ran her hands down the brick chimney on the porch that Knight family members all signed. She recalled the time bees got inside the wall and her daughter Hattie Lou and husband Sam took the boards off the house and got stung repeatedly. On hot summer nights, the family slept on the sleeping porch, and at one time they had a separate apartment built that various people lived in. In all, the Knight family lived in the house for 81 years. After that a local doctor owned it, but never lived in it, and it sat empty for more than a decade until Pam Bellman bought it. Bellman sold it to Ann Covington last year. It brings back memories, Mrs. Knight said as she climbed down from the porch into the yard. After all these years, its still standing.

FBI officials would not comment on a motive. Police Chief Tim McKenna said authorities have a lot of homework to do yet in their investigation of the shooting, which sent students screaming through the halls at the start of the school day at 1,100-student Chardon High. Teachers locked down their classrooms as they had been trained to do during drills, and students took cover as they waited for the all-clear in this town of 5,100 people 30 miles from Cleveland. One teacher was said to have dragged a wounded student into his classroom for protection. Another chased the gunman out of the building, police said. The suspect, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was arrested near his car a half-mile away, the FBI said. He was not immediately charged. Fifteen-year-old Danny Komertz, who witnessed the shooting, said the gunman was known as an outcast who had apparently been bullied. But other students disputed that. Even though he was quiet, he still had friends, said Tyler Lillash, 16. He was not bullied. Long before official word came of the attack, parents learned of the bloodshed from students via text message and cellphone and thronged the streets around the school, anxiously awaiting word on their children. Two of the wounded were listed in critical condition, and another was in serious condition. I looked up and this kid was pointing a gun about 10 feet away from me to a group of four kids sitting at a table, Komertz said. He said the gunman fired two shots quickly, and students scrambled for safety. One of them was trying to get underneath the table, trying to hide, protecting his face. The slain student, Daniel Parmertor, was an aspiring computer repairman who was waiting in the cafeteria for the bus for his daily 15-minute ride to a vocational school. His teacher at the Auburn Career School had no idea why Parmertor, a very good young man, very quiet, had been targeted, said Auburn superintendent Maggie Lynch. Officers investigating the shooting blocked off a road in a heavily wooded area several miles from the school. Federal agents patrolled the muddy driveway leading to several spacious homes and ponds, while other officers walked a snowy hillside. A police dog was brought in. It wasnt clear what they were looking for. Teacher Joe Ricci had just begun class when he heard shots and slammed the door to his classroom, yelling, Lockdown! to students, according to Karli Sensibello, a student whose sister was in Riccis classroom. A few minutes later, Ricci heard a student moaning outside, opened the door and pulled in student Nick Walczak, who had been shot several times, Sensibello said in an email. Ricci comforted Walczak and let him use his cellphone to call his girlfriend and parents, Sensibello said. She said her sister was too upset to talk. Heather Ziska, 17, said she was in the cafeteria when she saw a boy she recognized as a fellow student come into the cafeteria and start shooting. She said she and several others immediately ran outside, while other friends ran into a middle school and others locked themselves in a teachers lounge. Everybody just started running, said 17-year-old Megan Hennessy, who was in class when she heard loud noises. Everyone was running and screaming down the hallway. Rebecca Moser, 17, had just settled into her chemistry class when the school went into lockdown. The class of about 25 students ducked behind the lab tables at the back of the classroom, uncertain whether it was a drill.

SHOOTING Continued from Page A1
Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Jan Berenstain, who with her husband, Stan, wrote and illustrated the Berenstain Bears books that have charmed preschoolers and their parents for 50 years, has died. She was 88. Berenstain, a longtime resident of Solebury in southeastern Pennsylvania, suffered a severe stroke on Thursday and died Friday without regaining consciousness, her son Mike Berenstain said. The gentle tales of Mama Bear, Papa Bear, Brother Bear and Sister Bear were inspired by the Berenstain children, and later their grandchildren. The stories address childrens common concerns and aim to offer guidance on subjects like dentist visits, peer pressure, a new sibling or summer camp. The first Berenstain Bears book, The Big Honey Hunt, was published in 1962. Over the years, more than 300 titles have been released in 23 languages most recently in Arabic and Icelandic and have become a rite of passage for generations of young readers. They say jokes dont travel well, but family humor does, said Jan Berenstain told The Associated Press in 2011. Family values is what were all about.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The FBI said Monday that its probes of financial crime last year led to more than 3,000 convictions and over $12 billion in court-ordered restitution as agents attacked insider trading, Ponzi schemes and Medicare fraud in highdollar scams that victimized thousands of investors and the government. In a press briefing that amounted to a warning to the business community generally and to Wall Street in particular, the bureau released video and wiretaps from a few of its undercover operations targeting complex financial crime. The bureau also offered up a new public service announcement done by actor Michael Douglas, who in the movie Wall Street portrayed a greedy corporate raider operating on the wrong side of the law. Our economy is increasingly dependent on the success and integrity of the financial markets, Douglas said in the PSA announcement. If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is. For more information on how you can help identify securities fraud, or to report insider trading, contact your local FBI office. FBI Assistant Director Kevin Perkins, head of the bureaus criminal investigative division, said the law enforcement agency has shifted its focus on financial crime away from low-dollar cases and has hired 250 forensic accountants who hunt for criminal activity in financial records. FBI Financial Crimes Section Chief Timothy Gallagher said the bureau now operates a financial intelligence center to identify where it needs to send agents to investigate newly emerging threats in financial crime. Among the FBIs largest conviction numbers and amounts of restitution for 2011: Securities and commodities fraud, 394 convictions and $8.8 billion. Mortgage fraud, 1,082 convictions and $1.38 billion. Health care fraud, 736 convictions and $1.2 billion. The number of FBI probes is up sharply in some categories of financial crime. For example, securities and commodities fraud investigations have increased by 52 percent since 2008 to over 1,800 at the end of last year, the FBI reported.

N EW Y ORK S TOCKE XCHANGE Name Last Chg 0 0 0 A E 2 V Associated PressThe Dow Jones industrial average narrowly missed 13,000. Again. A burst of selling at the closing bell drove the Dow lower after it hovered around the milestone for most of the afternoon. The average finished the day down a sliver, 0.01 percent, and about 19 points shy of the mark. It was close enough that 9 cents added to the price of each of the 30 stocks in the Dow would have made the difference. And it almost did: American Express lost 14 cents in the last three minutes of trading. Boeing lost a dime in the last two minutes. When trading volume is light as it was Monday, with 3.6 billion shares exchanged someone can come in with a big sell at the end of the day that can sometimes force it one way or the other, said Joe Bell, senior equity analyst at Schaeffers Investment Research. The Dow broke through 13,000 several times last week but hasnt closed above that level since May 19, 2008, four months before the fall of Lehman Brothers investment bank and the worst of the financial crisis. For the day, the Dow lost 1.44 points and closed at 12,981.51. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 1.85 points to 1,367.59, a 3 1/2year high. The Nasdaq composite index rose 2.41 points to close at 2,966.16, its highest since December 2000. The Dow fell 100 points at the open Monday, then climbed back above 13,000 after a report that the number of Americans who signed contracts to buy homes rose in January to the highest in almost two years. The National Association of Realtors said its index of sales agreements rose 2 percent last month to a reading of 97, the highest since April 2010. A reading of 100 is considered healthy.

Over the weekend, the Group of 20 nations ignored Europes plea for aid and failed to reach agreement on making more money available from the International Monetary Fund for troubled countries. The G-20 countries say Europe should increase its own bailout fund. The need for the European Union to raise more funds heightened Monday, when ratings agency Standard & Poors lowered its credit outlook for the current fund, the European Financial Stability Facility, to negative. The price of the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose 43.75 cents Monday for every $100 invested. The yield on the benchmark note fell to 1.93 percent from 1.98 percent late Friday. In other trading, the 30-year bond rose $1.06, pushing its yield down to 3.04 percent from 3.11 percent. The yield on the twoyear note inched down to 0.30 percent, from 0.31 percent. The three-month T-bill paid a yield of 0.09 percent, flat from Friday. Europes crisis helps Treasurys Feds tout crackdown on financial crime

OPINIONS expressed are purely those of the callers. C. CARLIS H ARMAN B efore I retired from the U.S. Postal Service, we postmasters made many trips to the North Florida District Office in Jacksonville. We would try to pool drive, when possible. And, of course, we took U.S. 301 to Interstate 10, then to Jacksonville. If you have ever driven through those small towns between Ocala and I-10, you have probably received a ticket for speeding. The speed limit drops from 65 mph to 45 mph, then again to 30 mph quickly, and the small-town cops are waiting behind a building to catch you and write you a whopping speed ticket. You can learn where speed traps are by just doing an Internet search for find speed traps in Florida. Hundreds of locations will come up. I typed in find speed traps between Ocala, FL and I-10 on U.S. 301. This is only one website that came up; there were many. Go ahead and try it quite revealing.Speed-trap alley Since U.S. 301 is a popular shortcut between Northeastern Florida and the Gulf Coast region, a number of towns along the road have been notorious speed traps. The speed limit drops from 65 mph to 30 mph in a matter of a few hundred feet. Many have accused the police in Waldo, Starke, Lawtey and other towns of giving tickets simply to raise money. The American Automobile Association has designated areas of Waldo and Lawtey as traffic traps, stating on its website that These two small Florida communities ... still depend on revenue generated by traffic tickets to help meet their annual budget. When a law enforcement officer sets up his operation in your community, citizens contact AAA. After it receives several complaints, it warns motorists about your community on its website. Do we want to be on AAAs list as a seat-belt check warning list? I dont want Homosassa Springs or Crystal River on such a list. As long as Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Tod Cloud has been walking between cars at the traffic light at U.S. 19 and Grover Cleveland Boulevard and State Road 490 (Homosassa Trail), Homosassa Springs may as well already be on a seat-belt check trap list. I have personally observed this officer for several months now. Friday, Feb. 3, I decided to do something about it. I parked in the Walgreens parking lot, facing Grover Cleveland Boulevard, approached the trooper and asked for his name and badge number. He was in the process of issuing a ticket. He ordered me to get off the road. While I was waiting for him, I walked back to my pickup truck and got my digital camera. I took several pictures, one being a close-up of his license plate. The officer came around his car and ordered me to get off the road again. I told him that I was on the diagonal-marked area and he ordered me to get on the grass. The officer then came from the red car straight to me, was pointing his finger at me, threw out his chest and bumped me, straight on. He then said, You pushed me. I replied, You pushed your chest into me. I then turned to the people in the car who had been ticketed and said, Youre my witness. He pushed his chest into me; I never pushed him. Regretfully, I did not ask for the peoples names. By this time there were several sheriffs deputies on the scene. Trooper Cloud then gave me his business card. He changed his demeanor when the sheriffs deputies arrived. By the time I was back at my truck, there were five sheriffs deputies there.

State plays shell game with taxes W hen the Florida House passed its two versions of bills that allow for a back-to-school sales tax holiday and more than $120 billion in business tax breaks and incentives, it effectively neutralized an earlier bill that authorizes the collection of Internet sales tax. The legislature is well aware of this shell game, and in fact the latest move is by design. Gov. Rick Scott has publicly stated he wants the tax breaks to go along with the Internet sales tax bill to make it revenueneutral. Other legislators, like State Sen. J.D. Alexander, R-Lake Wales, have gone on record saying this is a move designed to protect lawmakers running for re-election. These bills amount to nothing more than legislative gimmickry a shell game where revenue gained through additional taxation suddenly disappears in tax breaks, incentives and tax holidays. The unfortunate truth is that business lobbyists have their fingerprints all over these maneuvers. The Internet sales tax bill helps brick-and-mortar stores compete fairly with online retailers, which is not a bad thing. But businesses also gains from the tax holiday as consumers spend a lot more money when no taxes are charged. Finally, they get a third legislative pass through the breaks and incentives offered in the bills. We would like to see more effort put into running the state more efficiently by harnessing the tax dollars we do receive and directing them to the areas of most need. If Florida can eliminate its wastefulness and stop playing the shell game with the tax code, we all get a tax break. THE ISSUE: Florida House passes consumer tax breaks.OUR OPINION: Harness tax dollars and allocate where needed. Romney a loser Im a very strong Republican, but for president, how can anybody think about voting for Mitt Romney when he supported John McCain, and John McCain couldnt beat Obama. And now were going to support somebody that supported a loser like John McCain by voting for Mitt Romney? Come on, people. Wake up. We need to get somebody in there thats going to be able to win and its not going to be Mitt Romney. He stutters all the time. Obama will walk all over that stutter he has. He cant complete a sentence.Romney a winner We have been wanting a businessman, but most of the businessmen that have been in have not been real good businessmen. So lets give Romney a chance. He sounds like an honest businessman. Cain would have made it good that way, too. But I think Romney would even be better. So lets give him a chance and get him to win this nomination and see what he can do.Pray for peace With the horrific slaughter of millions in Syria, including many innocent children, it would be appropriate for the clergy to be asking us to pray for peace there.Dont careI just wanted to say that I dont care what happens in Syria or Afghanistan or Iraq. I do not care. I care about America and thats it.Problem solvedI used to have saw palmettos and someone told me to take weed killer and spray the fronds. I did that. It took a while, but theyre gone. It kills them all the way down to the root.GOP destroying usEvery time I hear these neoconservative Republicans, really rightwing, it sends a shiver up and down my spine. They want to destroy everything that has been done good for the average person in this country for the working person, for the guy who goes to work six days a week, even, and his wife has to have a part-time job to keep things going. Those people will be destroyed by what the Republican conservatives want to do. So you better remember that if youre an average guy, an average Joe Six-Pack, youd better not vote for them or everything you knew that was good will be gone.No stopping When will the city of Crystal River ever learn about the Fish and Wildlife Commission? They opened up an office years ago on Kings Bay in a residential (zone). They defied everything about zoning, water, everything, and yet they got away with it. Theyre going to get away with anything they want to with the Three Sisters project, too. Better turn around and look and see what theyre doing. They wont stop here. Just remember what they did before.Wake up, AmericaWelcome to Obamacare. Now Obamas going to force insurance companies to provide abortions for everybody. I think the man does not respect our religious freedoms. He does not respect America in a lot of ways. He doesnt understand that we are all, we like our independence and our freedom to choose and we like our religion to stay separated from our government. I dont believe Obama gets it, but well see.

Recognition needed On Friday, Feb. 3, the county terminated five employees in a reorganization of development services. News of this was pretty much out on the street by midmorning, but it took the county until 3:33 p.m. to issue their official press release. The only detail in that release read as follows: The positions identified in the reorganization include planning division director, flood management coordinator, senior planner, senior secretary and GIS/CADD technician. No names were given and more importantly, no statement from Brad Thorpe, county administrator, praising these employees for their many years of loyal service and regretting the need to eliminate their jobs. I raised these points at the Board of County Commissioners meeting on Feb. 14, and Administrator Thorpes response was: Consideration was given to protect the privacy of the employees and they have families; they live here. The county recently hired a former TV news producer to the position of public information officer, or PIO. This employees scope of work includes the preparation of press releases which most favorably reflect upon the interests of county government. As a 20-year employee of a U.S. multinational corporation with enlightened HR policies, I place great importance upon the core belief of respect for the individual. To this end, I want to place on record my sincere appreciation to Kevin Smith, former planning division director; Kandi Harper, former senior planner; Nancy Witty, former flood management coordinator; Jacqui Hendrix, former senior secretary; and to Stuart Miller, former GIS/CADD technician. For those interested in numbers, their collective total years of employment with the county amounts to approximately 80plus years. That must be worth some better recognition than that afforded by Mr. Thorpe and the PIO.Chris Lloyd Lecanto Pleasant dreams When your day has ended and youve come to rest on your pillow, may your final thought be before drifting off to sleep: I wonder how many children went to bed HUNGRY tonight.

Associated PressEGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. The best fighter pilots from the Air Force, Marines and Navy arrived in the Florida Panhandle last year to learn to fly the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the most expensive, most advanced weapons program in U.S. history. They are still waiting. Concerns about the stealth jets safety, cost overruns and questions about the entire programs feasibility have delayed the training and left about 35 pilots mostly outside the cockpit. The most the pilots do with the nine F-35s at Eglin Air Force Base is occasionally taxi them and fire up the engines. Otherwise their training is limited to three F-35 flight simulators, classroom work and flights in older-model jets. Only a handful of test pilots get to fly the F-35s. The most frustrated pilot is one who isnt flying at all, said Marine Col. Arthur Tomassetti, vice commander of the fighter wing and a former test pilot for the F-35 prototype. Built by Lockheed Martin under a 2001 contract, the F35 is supposed to replace Cold War-era aircraft such as the Air Forces F-16 fighter and the Navys and Marines F/A-18 Hornet. It would also be sold to many NATO countries and other U.S. allies. Costing between $65 million and $100 million each, depending on the version, the F-35 is described as a generational leap from older fighter jets. A singleseat aircraft, it can fly at about 1,050 mph and, officials say, fight both air-to-air and air-to-ground significantly better than its predecessors. One version can land on an aircraft carrier while another can hover, landing on and taking off from a helicopter carrier. It carries more fuel and more ordnance internally than older fighter jets, allowing it to maintain stealth, and has the latest onboard computer systems, allowing the pilot to control the plane and communicate with other aircraft and interact with ground commanders like never before. From a flying perspective, what we call the stick and rudder is the same for any platform, but when you integrate the sensors, the pilot has the capability to make much better decisions and be much more precise, said Air Force Col Andrew Toth, the training wings commander. His name adorns one of the schools F-35s. And because it is to be used by all three branches of the U.S. military that fly fighter jets and by U.S. allies, training and maintenance could be handled jointly. Thats intended to save money compared to having separate, parallel maintenance and training groups in each force. But just as the program appeared to be taking off, it was grounded over a variety of concerns. They range from improperly installed parachutes under the pilots ejector seats, to worries at the Pentagon that there has not been enough testing of the jets, to ongoing concerns by some in Congress that the entire F-35 program is too expensive. Its projected cost has jumped from $233 billion to an estimated $385 billion, including development. Forty-three F-35s have been built and another 2,443 have been ordered by the Pentagon. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz said earlier this month the Air Force wasnt ready to start student flights at Eglin. The plan will be to start flying, not training, but to start flying with test-qualified aviators initially to do what we call local area orientation, he said. We will build to a threshold, which will allow the training leadership in the Air Force to declare ready to train with other than test-qualified aviators. Questions about funding, slow production of the aircraft and uncertainty about overall strategy have contributed to inefficiencies in money and manpower, said Baker Spring, a defense analyst with the Washingtonbased Heritage Foundation. Spring said the complicated way the Pentagon budgeting process worked has trickled down to the pilots at the school. You have people out there twiddling their thumbs waiting for planes. This contributes to the high unit costs, Spring said. All of this has left the first batch of would-be F-35 pilots in training limbo. This is supposed to be the first time fighter pilots from all three branches train together and they are looking forward to both the competition and learning from each other. All of the pilots here are incredibly talented, handpicked, board-selected, they are the best of the best and the opportunity to come here is and fly the F-35 as a Marine operator is truly the career opportunity of a lifetime, said Marine Lt. Col. Jim Wellons said at ceremony for the jet at Eglin last year. There is so much that we can learn from each other. We in the Marine Corps are focused on supporting the Marine on the ground, even though we have an airplane that can perform air combat and the full range of tactical missions. The Air Force fighter community also supports the man on the ground but they have a significant strategic focus. The Navy is very focused on shipboard operations, so we all have our different strengths and probably weaknesses. When the school becomes fully operational, dozens of pilots and hundreds of F-35 crew members will funnel through Eglin each year. Right now it looks like a large building out here with empty hallways, but we are going to have 900 students soon, said the Marines Col. Tomassetti during a tour of the largely empty school last year. Tomassetti said this month that the school continues to wait for a ready to train order from the Pentagon. The colonel said he and the Marines he commands are eager to fly new jet. We do have F-16s on loan and some of our pilots are going off station to fly other jets. They are flying and they understand that this is part of standing up a new program, he said. When the Pentagon decides to allow the Eglin planes to fly is anyones guess, said J.R. McDonald, Lockheeds Eglin-based vice president of corporate domestic business development. I think we are close but it is a U.S. government decision and the government enterprise will decide when it decides. The (fighter wing) just has to patient because they have done everything they can do, he said.

Crops sheltered in doomsday vault STOCKHOLM Chickpeas, fava beans and other seeds from a facility in Syria are among the 25,000 new samples being deposited this week in an Arctic seed vault built to protect food crops from wars and natural disasters, officials said Tuesday. The latest additions mean that the Svalbard Global Seed Vault a master backup to the worlds other seed banks has now secured more than 740,000 samples since it opened in a remote Norwegian archipelago in 2008. That represents an estimated three-quarters of the biological diversity of the worlds major food crops, said Cary Fowler, executive director of the Global Crop Diversity Trust, which maintains the vault with Norways government and the Nordic Genetic Resources Center. With the shipment from the Syria-based International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas, almost its entire collection is now backed up in Svalbard, Fowler told The Associated Press. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Cruise ship adrift off Seychelles after fire No injuries reported Associated PressNAIROBI, Kenya An Italian cruise liner carrying more than 1,000 people was adrift without power in the pirate-infested Indian Ocean on Monday after a fire erupted in its generator room. The blaze, which was extinguished, caused no injuries, officials said. Two tug boats from the island nation of Seychelles were steaming toward the drifting Costa Allegra, which had 636 passengers and 413 crew members on board, but they were not expected to arrive until Tuesday afternoon at the earliest. Italian coast guard officials said a large French fishing boat could be the first vessel to reach the stricken cruise liner. Mondays fire on the Costa Allegra immediately raised fears, since it occurred only six weeks after one of its sister ships, the Costa Concordia, hit a reef and capsized off Italy, killing 25 people and leaving seven missing and presumed dead. Both ships are operated by Costa Crociere SpA, which is owned by the Florida-based Carnival Corp. However, company officials rushed to play down concerns. The Costa Allegra is adrift and being pushed by the current. It is stable and upright, Giorgio Moretti, the director of nautical operations for Costa Crociere SpA, told reporters in a conference call late Monday from company headquarters in Genoa, Italy. No one was injured in the fire in the generator room and the cause of the fire was under investigation, Moretti said. The fire knocked out power to the ships engines as well as to its lights and air conditioning. Associated Press The Italian coast guard said a fire broke out on the Costa Allegra cruise ship, shown in this file photo, Monday off the Seychelles islands. The coast guard said the ship is adrift, but the passengers are safe. The ship owner Costa Crociere said in a statement there were no injuries or casualties among the 636 passengers and 413 crew members. Detroit car companies race to keep up with sales Associated PressDETROIT Auto sales are growing so fast that Detroit can barely keep up. Three years after the U.S. auto industry nearly collapsed, sales of cars and trucks are surging. Sales could exceed 14 million this year, above last years 12.8 million. The result: Carmakers are adding shifts and hiring thousands of workers around the country. Carmakers and parts companies added more than 38,000 jobs last year, reaching a total of 717,000. And automakers have announced plans to add another 13,000 this year, mostly on night shifts. But theres a downside. The newfound success is straining the factory network of the Detroit automakers, as well as the companies that make the thousands of parts that go into each vehicle. This could lead to shortages that drive up prices. And it also has auto executives in a quandary. They got into trouble in the first place largely because their costs were too high. Now, they fear adding too many workers. Ford, for instance, is squeezing every last component, transmission, engine out of the existing brick and mortar, says Jim Tetreault, vice president of North America manufacturing. Still, the hiring surge bolsters the argument of those who supported the federal bailout of General Motors and Chrysler in 2008 and 2009. The bailout has been a major issue in the days leading up to Tuesdays Michigan Republican primary. And the hiring is good news for communities around the country that saw hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs disappear. Starting in 2005, GM, Ford and Chrysler closed 28 factories and eliminated 88,000 jobs. Parts companies cut another 234,000. Now, if sales hit 15 million by 2015, as some experts predict, the three Detroit automakers could hire another 20,000 people, predicts Sean McAlinden, chief economist for the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Mich. You can only squeeze so much out of the same amount of people, says Itay Michaeli, an auto analyst at Citi Investment Research. Laurie Schmald Moncrieff, president of a small parts-manufacturing company near Flint, Mich., says when demand for auto parts collapsed, she shifted production to parts for companies in green energy, aerospace and defense. Leap forward Associated PressNEW YORK Peter Brouwer turns 56 on Wednesday. But if you count the times hes celebrated his true birth date, hes only turning 14. Brouwer is a Leap Day baby. And like a lot of people born Feb. 29, he relishes the uniqueness of his birthday. He even thinks theres an advantage to marking your real birthday just once every four years. We dont have that psychological drama of being a year older every year, said Brouwer, who lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is the co-founder of the Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies. In off years, Brouwer says, most Leap Day babies perhaps 80 percent celebrate their birthdays in February because theyre born in February. We call them strict Februarians. But Jennifer Whisnant of Greensboro, N.C., whose daughter Ava was born in 2008, says they celebrate on the closest Saturday for a party, or on March 1st, which is technically when she would have been born had it not been Leap year. Birth certificates and most government agencies like Social Security use Feb. 29 for those born on Leap Day, but leaplings occasionally encounter bureaucratic difficulties using their true birth dates. Some computerized dropdown menus dont include Feb. 29. My life insurance policy is for March 1 because their computer doesnt support Leap day, Brouwer said. On Facebook, Anne McCarthys friends get a note Feb. 28 that her birthday is the next day. Then on March 1, there would be nothing. So, unless it was a Leap year, friends would not see birthday reminders for the actual day, said McCarthy, of Boston, turning 24 on Wednesday (in Leap time, 6). There are no reliable numbers on exactly how many babies are born on Leap Day, but statistically, the odds of being born then are the same as any other day. The law of averages means your chance of being born on Feb. 29 are one out of 1,461, Brouwer said, explaining that 1,461 equals 365, or the number of days in the year, times four, plus one for the extra day in the four-year cycle. We figure in the U.S., theres about 200,000 of us, and in the world, about 5 million. Theres also no good way of definitively determining whether mothers with scheduled C-sections or induced births avoid or embrace Leap Day. But at Florida Hospital in Orlando, people would rather have the baby on Leap Day. We have a slight increase in the number of scheduled C-sections on that day since it is a special day, said hospital spokeswoman Sara Channing. One of those scheduled to give birth Wednesday at Florida Hospital is Tammy Gerencser, who didnt hesitate when her doctor proposed scheduling her C-section Feb. 29. I got this sheet of paper that said, Youre going in Feb. 29, Gerencser said. She said while a few people told her, Oh no, you need to change that date, other people are so excited. Associated Press Tammy Gerencser, 42, right, talks Monday with Dr. Michael Cacciatore at Florida Hospital, in Orlando, Fla. Gerencser is scheduled to have a C-section Wednesday. Most people born on Feb. 29 relish their uniqueness, and mothers with scheduled C-sections dont shun the day. A hospital in Florida reported an uptick in C-sections for the day. Every 4 years, those born on Feb. 29 celebrate true birthday Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Tattoos have long served as fashion statements, but a small number of Americans are now relying on them for a more practical, potentially lifesaving purpose: to warn first responders about important medical conditions. Some medical tattoos are being used to take the place of bracelets that commonly list a persons allergies, chronic diseases or even end-of-life wishes. Bracelets are nice, but something as strong as a tattoo ... that is a strong statement, said Dr. Ed Friedlander, a Kansas City pathologist who has No CPR tattooed in the center of his chest, where a paramedic would see it. Friedlander, 60, got the tattoo to emphasize his decision to forgo CPR if his heart stops. Medical tattoos dont appear to carry much legal weight. Its unclear whether an ambulance crew racing to treat a gravely ill patient could honor a request such as Friedlanders based on the tattoo alone. But the markings do offer a simple and permanent way to give rescuers important health details.

The Nashville Predators acquired Gaustad in a trade with the Sabres. Associated PressThe Nashville Predators and Vancouver Canucks added some reinforcements for a playoff run, while Rick Nashs wish for a deal didnt come to fruition Monday as the NHL trade deadline passed without any blockbuster moves. Having won a playoff series for the first time in franchise history a year ago, the Predators are looking to take the next step and beyond by beefing up the offense with left wing Andrei Kostitsyn and two-way forward Paul Gaustad. Nashville also acquired defenseman Hal Gill earlier this month and sits in fifth place in the Western Conference. I think with these trades weve certainly given us a chance to play with the big boys this year when we get in the playoffs, Predators general manager David Poile said. The Canucks, sitting atop the NHL standings with 19 games left in the regular season, fine-tuned their roster with three deals that added four players: checking-line center Samuel Pahlsson, rookie forward Zack Kassian, defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani and forward Andrew Gordon. But the player expected to be the big catch of the day went nowhere. Nash, captain of the league-worst Columbus Blue Jackets, requested a trade last month, according to general manager Scott Howson.

Delays rule the day and night at Daytona 500 Associated Press DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. F irst came the rain. Then came the fire. Everything that could go wrong with this Daytona 500 did go wrong, and the first NASCAR race in primetime television will be remembered for everything but the eventual winner. Journeyman driver Dave Blaney was leading when a problem with Juan Pablo Montoyas car sent him spinning into a safety truck. The truck, which holds 200 gallons of jet kerosene, burst into flames. Montoyas car slid into the grass, and he gingerly climbed from it as fire trucks rushed to the scene. The inferno raged on, and NASCAR red-flagged the race with 40 laps remaining. NASCAR officials were examining the track surface to determine whether the race could continue. Jet fuel poured down the surface of Turn 3 at Daytona International Speedway, creating a fiery lasting image of NASCARs biggest race of the year. It was par for the course for this See DAYTONA / Page B3

Foley has all but dominated the Modified Mini Stock division at the speedway, winning the past three points championships. Saturday night, Foley would start in an all too familiar position, the last row of the field. Brad Blanton (14) and Chris Snow (29) brought the field to the green flag. Their time at the front of the field was short-lived, as seventh-place starter Mark Powers (69) powered his way to the front of the pack. Behind him, fifth-place starter Rick Kuhn (47) and Foley (7) made their way through the field. Foley soon caught Powers, and the battle for the lead was on. Foley proved fast enough to make the winning pass and take his second feature win of 2012. Powers ran an uncontested second ahead of Rick Kuhn in third. Foley was also the heat race winner. Thirteen Street Stocks were led to the green by pole-sitter Joey Bifaro (112) and Dora Thorne (48). Caution was quickly waived for contact between Thorne and eighth-place starter James Peters (5). The cars were realigned and racing quickly resumed. Bifaro lead the field on the restart, with Craig Cuzzone (88) just behind. The red flag came out on lap 6 for a fire on Pat Dents (6) racer. The fire was quickly extinguished by the track safety crew, and Dent was uninjured. The short green flag run did shuffle the running order drastically, as ninth-place starter Curtis Flanagan (3) moved from fourth at lap 1, to the lead by the time red flag came out at lap 6. Flanagan led the field to green with Cuzzone and Bubba Martone (98) close behind. Lap 15 saw the next caution as Martone made contact with Cuzzone while racing for second place. Martone took blame for the incident, giving Cuzzone his spot back and putting himself to the rear of the field. Flanagan pulled away on the restart and took his third victory of 2012. Cuzzone came home second, followed by Kenny May in third. Flanagan and Peters were the heat race winners. Thirteen Pure Stocks rumbled to the green with Earl Frazier (4) on the pole position. Frazier is making his return to racing after several years off from competition. Outside pole-sitter James Johnson (45) got a great start, and moved to the lead quickly. Carl Peters (39) charged from his eighth starting position to challenge for and take the lead on lap 5. Behind him was the fatherand-son team of Nicholas (17) and Eugene Malverty (23) slicing their way through the rest of the field. Nicholas caught Johnson for second and made the pass, bringing father Eugene with him. A lap 12 caution for debris closed Nicholas right to Peters rear bumper for a restart. Peters proved to have the best car on this night, driving away to an uncontested win on the restart. Nicholas Malverty had to settle for second ahead of his father Eugene in third. Nicholas extended his points lead to five over his father with the finish. Peters and Happy Florian (65) were the heat race winners. Thirteen Street Stock Figure8 cars provided the fans with some high-speed intersection action to put them on the edge of their seats. David Ross (33) jumped out to an early lead at the green flag. Ross lead until lap 5, when contact entering turn 3 between Ross and Thomas Peet (85) brough out the caution. Both drivers were sent to the rear for the restart. This handed the lead to Ronnie Schrefiels (6) for the restart, which left the rest of the field with a very fast car up front. Second-place runner Neil Herne (13) gave everything he had to try to get past Schrefiels, but couldnt find the lane he needed to make the pass. Schrefiels went on to take the first feature win of the year in the division. Neil Herne came home second just ahead of brother Charles Herne (03) in third. The Hornet Division saw Daryl Veltman (55) get out to an early lead, but Mathew Street (151) soon put the pressure on. Both drivers battled hard for the top spot, both making contact and getting out of shape. Street finally made the winning pass on lap 12, and go on to take the victory over Veltman. The Hornet Division is a beginner class, but these two drivers have put on some great races over the first few weeks of the 2012 season. Clay Ranallo (6) brought one of the tracks rental cars home in the third position just ahead of Kane Dixon (15) in fourth. This Saturday night will see a full schedule of events with the Open Wheel Modifieds, Sportsman, Pure Stock, Mini Stock, Hornets, and DWARF cars all in action. With only two weeks left until the fair break, all the drivers are trying to get their machines tuned up for the mid-season run. Front gates open at 4 p.m. and racing takes the green at 5:30 sharp.

Clark finished with 13 points and six rebounds, while Sims had 12 points and five assists. While they have led the way all season for Georgetown (22-6, 12-5) on a roster with 10 freshmen and sophomores, there was plenty of help from the youngsters, as usual. Greg Whittington contributed 15 points on 5-for-6 shooting, and another freshman, Otto Porter, had 10 rebounds. No. 1 Baylor 69, No. 17 Texas A&M 62COLLEGE STATION, Texas Brittney Griner and Odyssey Sims scored 25 points each and top-ranked Baylor used a late run to hold off No. 17 Texas A&M for a 69-62 win on Monday night. Baylor (30-0, 17-0 Big 12) led by one point before going on a 6-0 run that was aided unintentionally by an official. Griner made a jump shot before Kimetria Hayden knocked the ball out of Alexia Standishs hands. With the ball almost sure to go out of bounds, it bounced off an official and remained on the court, setting up a layup by Sims before Hayden added a basket to make it 67-60 with 1:39 remaining. The Lady Bears have matched the 2009-2010 Nebraska team for the best start in conference history and have their second straight 30-win season. Tyra Whites 14 points led A&M (20-8, 11-6). No. 20 Irish fall to No. 11 Bulldogs Rangers blank Devils Associated PressNEW YORK Carl Hagelin scored late in the first period and Henrik Lundqvist made the goal stand up as the New York Rangers snapped the New Jersey Devils seven-game road winning streak with a 2-0 victory on Monday night. After a relatively quiet NHL trade deadline day for both teams, the Eastern Conference-leading Rangers stretched their advantage to nine points over Boston and Pittsburgh. Hagelin gave the Rangers a 1-0 edge with 3:01 left in the first period. Ryan Callahan added an empty-netter with 1:06 left, his career-best 25th goal with an assist from Hagelin to make it 2-0. Lundqvist, who entered with the leagues lowest goals-against average in February, dropped it even further by making 13 saves for his NHL-best eighth shutout of the season and the 43rd of his career. Lundqvist made a lunging glove snare with 2:26 left to rob Ilya Kovalchuk and secure his 30th win of the season. Predators 2, Kings 1Predators 2, Kings 1 NASHVILLE, Tenn. Pekka Rinne made 30 saves in leading the Nashville Predators to a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. Roman Josi and Patric Hornqvist scored for Nashville. Dustin Brown had the lone goal for Los Angeles. The sliding Kings have lost five of six. They had defeated Nashville in their last three trips to Music City. Rinnes 35 wins this season are a career high and lead the NHL. The Predators have won 17 of their last 21 home games and are 10-0-2 in their last 12. Josi scored the games first goal with 1:33 left in the opening period. Hornqvist doubled the Nashville lead early in second, capping a wild series of events. Newly acquired Kings forward Jeff Carters shot from the left circle rang off Rinnes right goal post. Nashville took the puck up ice, and David Legwands shot from the left side caromed off of the backboards and onto the stick of Hornqvist just off the right post. He had an easy tap-in for his 18th goal of the season. Hornqvist played his second game after missing five with an upper-body injury. Legwand had two assists in the game. Oilers 5, Jets 3 WINNIPEG, Manitoba Lennart Petrell and Taylor Hall both had a goal and an assist as the Edmonton Oilers scored four times in the third period to beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-3 on Monday night. Petrell assisted on Halls winner midway through the third period as Edmonton earned its third win in four games. Ryan Whitney, Ryan Jones and Jordan Eberle also scored for the Oilers. Kyle Wellwood and Alex Burmistrov each scored in the second period for Winnipeg), while Nik Antropov added a goal with 1:10 left in the game. Associated Press New York Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto reacts, seeing the puck behind Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who, along with New Jersey Devils left wing Ilya Kovalchuk, appear unaware of the pucks whereabouts in the first period Monday at Madison Square Garden in New York.
The price was high, Howson said. And I dont apologize for that. Nashs non-trade was emblematic of a relative tranquil deadline day. There were 16 deals, but nothing that came close to altering the fabric of the NHL universe. The fact that the postseason remains within reach for so many teams all but five were within six points of a playoff spot when the 3 p.m. deadline passed created a onesided market. The theme of this years deadline was that everybody wanted to add, and there was no one selling, said Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee, who stood pat even though his team is underperforming and in need of a center because of Nicklas Backstroms concussion. The Predators spent the future for the present with their moves, sending a 2012 first-round draft pick and a 2013 fourth-rounder to the Buffalo Sabres for Gaustad. Kostitsyn, who will be reunited him with his brother Sergei in Nashville, came from Montreal for a secondround and conditional fifthround pick in 2013. Everybody pays their prices at different times, Poile said. Most clubs pay big money at July 1st. We havent been too notorious in doing that. I feel real good about paying a little bit more if thats the case on Feb. 27 when you have 20 games left in the season to challenge for the playoffs and to challenge for the Stanley Cup. While Nash stays in Columbus, the Blue Jackets did make one move, sending Pahlsson to the Canucks for minor-league defenseman Taylor Ellington and two 2012 fourth-round draft picks. The Canucks also shipped rookie center Cody Hodgson to Buffalo for Kassian in an exchange of former firstround draft choices. Rarely used defenseman Alexander Sulzer also went to the Sabres for Gragnani as part of the deal. Vancouvers third trade sent defenseman Sebastien Erixon to the Anaheim Ducks for Gordon. In other moves Monday: The defending Stanley Cup-champion Boston Bruins acquired forward Brian Rolston and defenseman Mike Mottau from the New York Islanders for two prospects, center Yannick Riendeau and defenseman Marc Cantin, both of whom will be assigned by the Islanders to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League. Boston also sent defenseman Steve Kampfer to the Minnesota Wild for defenseman Greg Zanon. To make space on the roster for the new acquisitions, the Bruins assigned Andrew Bodnarchuk, Carter Camper, and Max Sauve to Providence of the AHL. The San Jose Sharks received left wing T.J. Galiardi, left wing Daniel Winnik and a 2013 seventhround pick from the Colorado Avalanche for left wing Jamie McGinn, center Mike Sgarbossa and left wing Mike Connolly. The Ducks, in addition to the Gordon-Erixon trade, acquired right wing Dale Mitchell from the Toronto Maple Leafs for defensman Mark Fraser. The Tampa Bay Lightning traded defenseman Matt Gilroy to the Ottawa Senators for defenseman Brian Lee and sent right wing Carter Ashton to the Maple Leafs for defenseman Keith Aulie. The Lightning also got defenseman Mike Commodore from the Detroit Red Wings for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2013. The Edmonton Oilers sent defenseman Tom Gilbert to the Wild for defenseman Nick Schultz. Schultz, the longest-tenured athlete among Minnesotas four major professional teams, took the news hard, his eyes wet with tears when he spoke to reporters. Basically all I know is being here, playing here and being part of this team, he said. The Chicago Blackhawks acquired defenseman Johnny Oduya from the Winnipeg Jets for picks in the second and third rounds of the 2013 draft. Chicago also shipped defenseman John Scott to the New York Rangers for a 2012 fifthround pick.

TRADES Continued from Page B1 TENNIS Continued from Page B1 Daytona 500, which was postponed for the first time in NASCARs 54-year history because of steady rain Sunday at the track. NASCAR planned to restart the race at noon Monday, but persistent rain forced officials to make an early decision to hold off until 7 p.m. Fox stayed with its plans to broadcast the 500, making it the first ever NASCAR race shown in primetime and an opportunity to feature the elite Sprint Cup Series. Carl Edwards, who fell just short of winning the title last season, started from the pole with champion Tony Stewart, seeking to snap an 0-for-13 losing streak in the Daytona 500, right behind him. Danica Patrick, making the full-time move to NASCAR from IndyCar, was making her Daytona 500 debut. Those storylines were quickly forgotten in this 55th running of NASCARs version of the Super Bowl. It took several minutes for safety workers to put out the fire, and then came the task of removing the truck from the track and cleaning up all that spilled fuel. Towing the truck from the steep banking presented a challenge, as NASCAR was nervous any movement woulddig into the track surface. The drivers were allowed to exit their cars after about 10 minutes under the red flag. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had been complaining he had to go to the bathroom, and Brad Keselowski was posting to Twitter from inside his car. The racing was aggressive at the drop of the green flag, and the first accident occurred on just the second lap, when Elliott Sadler ran into the back of Jimmie Johnson as they drafted around the track. The contact sent Johnson into the wall, and as the fivetime NASCAR champion slid back down across the track, he was hit hard in the door by David Ragan. The accident collected six cars total, including defending Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne and Patrick. The race settled down after that, and the push for the $200,000 leader bonus at the halfway mark didnt spark too much excitement. Twotime NASCAR champion Terry Labonte had been running second and presumably in position to make a move for the cash, but he was spun by Marcos Ambrose. After a brief caution, the leaders had a 10-lap sprint to the halfway point, and Martin Truex Jr. used a big push from Denny Hamlin to slide by Greg Biffle on the deciding lap. Although he was told over his team radio to go get the other half, history didnt bode well for Truex: the last leader at the halfway point to win the Daytona 500 was Davey Allison in 1992.

Jolies leg spawns Twitter accountNEW YORK Angelina Jolies leg has spawned its own Twitter account, and its an instant hit. The Twitter feed dubbed Angies Right Leg has more than 12,000 followers by midday Monday. Most of what Jolies leg has to say is fairly simpleminded. Sample tweets include Im a leg! and Look at the leg! At the Oscars, Jolies glamorous black dress featured a split by her right leg. She appeared to accentuate it while presenting the award for best adapted screenplay.Actress arrested at post-Oscars party LOS ANGELES Actress Sean Young was arrested after a scuffle with a security guard at the official post-Oscars party, police said Monday. Young, 52, was placed under citizens arrest at the Governors Ball at 9:25 p.m. Sunday after the dispute, police Cmdr. Andrew Smith said. She was trying to get into the party and couldnt get in, he said. Young, who has starred in Blade Runner and Stripes, was booked at the Hollywood police station for investigation of misdemeanor battery. She posted $20,000 bail and was released early Monday. The actress, wearing a ball gown, was taken into custody quickly, said Tom Januszewski an Associated Press business executive who witnessed the incident. He said he saw a guard subdue Young by placing his forearm on her neck and head while other guards placed her in handcuffs and led her away.Preliminary ratings up for Oscars NEW YORK Ratings for the Academy Awards are up 4 percent over last year in a preliminary Nielsen measurement. The ratings company said Monday that the Oscars had a 25.5 rating and 38 share in its overnight count of the nations 56 largest media markets. Each rating point represents 1 percent of the nations estimated 114.7 million TV homes. Associated PressD espite torrents of debate among African-Americans over the merits of the segregation-era movie The Help, most still hoped that Viola Davis, who plays a maid, would become just the second black winner of the best actress Oscar. And so there was widespread disappointment when Davis lost the Academy Award to Meryl Streep on Sunday night. Still, ambivalence tinged the reaction: Besides regret that the ranks of black Oscar winners remained small, many felt relief that a role viewed as stereotypical was not honored. Oohhhhhhhnnnnnnooooooooooooooo, wailed Robinne Lee on Twitter. Lee, a black actress who has appeared in films such as Seven Pounds and Hotel for Dogs, said in an interview that Streep embodies excellence and deserved to win. But Viola had so much hype this year, and there was so much excitement, and it conjured up so much controversy in the black community about this role, so (the loss) was disappointing. Yet Lee felt a mix of emotions, since she is eager to see more diverse movie casts in a wider variety of roles. Adding to the conundrum was the best supporting actress victory of Octavia Spencer, who played another maid in The Help. Prior to Sunday, only 13 black actors had won Hollywoods highest honor in the Oscars 84-year history. Only Halle Berry had been chosen best actress, for playing a wounded soul who finds solace in the arms of a white man in Monsters Ball. With Spencers award, maid roles are responsible for two of the six Oscars won by black actresses. The debate over The Help made Hollywoods racial issues a recurring theme of Oscar night. During a skit about what actors were thinking, host Billy Crystal imagined this for Davis: I want to thank my writer and director for creating the role of a strong black woman that wasnt played by Tyler Perry. Presenting an animation award, Chris Rock said the voice genre allowed fat women to play skinny or a wimp to play a gladiator. And if youre a black man, you can play a donkey or a zebra. You cant play white, oh my God! Rocks observation resonated with Monika Brooks, a diversity consultant and self-described movie dork. The problem is not that Davis played a maid, she said. The problem is theres not more black people in really good roles. Of the 5,765 people who vote on the Oscars, nearly 94 percent are white and 77 percent are male, according to a new Los Angeles Times study. The median voter age is 62. Thats why Brooks was not surprised by The Help being made or crestfallen when Davis didnt win: Whoever writes the checks writes the rules. As the Oscars approached, The Help was lambasted in some quarters of the black community. Many perceived it as another instance of black characters being saved by whites, or of serving only as vehicles to improve and enlighten white lives. Watching The Help was torture for Tour, the cultural commentator who uses just one name. But as a black man, he was disappointed that Davis lost. I hated the film but respect Violas immense talent, he said in an interview. I wanted her to get recognition for her talent and to get the power that comes with winning. Oakland activist and journalist Davey D said it seemed like a contradiction for critics to slam the film but support Davis and Spencer. The fear was Viola winning or The Help winning wouldve validated keeping alive an image that many black folks found stereotypical, inaccurate and overall problematic, he said in an interview. A win was seen as a setback. During Oscar season, Davis consistently advocated for a wider range of black roles. Ive played a lot of drug addicts, she said in an interview with Terry Gross of NPR. And she told Tavis Smiley that black people who are ambivalent about The Help have a mindset that is absolutely destroying the black artist, because it forces black actors to water down their performances to avoid character flaws that might offend oversensitive black audiences. The black artist cannot live in the place in a revisionist place, Davis told Smiley. The black artist can only tell the truth about humanity, and humanity is messy.

During this cycle theres an excellent chance that you could develop a useful product for which there will be a boffo market. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Be extremely careful not to let pessimistic thinking dominate your optimistic viewpoint. If you do, youll allow defeat to carry the day, when you could instead easily triumph. Aries (March 21-April 19) Companions might have a difficult time getting a handle on your mood. In some instances youll be extremely kind, while in other cases the Scrooge in you might come to the fore. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Be careful what you say and to whom. Someone might quote your comments out of context and end up hurting both of you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) If youre not careful, there is a good chance that youll be intimidated by your own imagination. Of course, this can be avoided if you dont misuse your fertile mind. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Sensing a friends fragile mood, the timing might not be exactly right to remind him or her about an overdue financial obligation. Youve waited this long, tarry a bit longer if you can. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) When seeking advice concerning a troublesome situation, dont settle for just one persons opinion. Numerous points of view might provide you with a great, collective answer. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The ideas or suggestions of someone in the family might be superior to your thoughts on handling a delicate situation. Dont allow your ego to block your eardrums.

Even if the road is bumpy, you will be better off overcoming all the obstacles yourself. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) When it comes to serving your own self-interest, youre likely to be extremely productive, but if you are required to help out another, your faculties could suddenly shut down. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Think twice before investing in a situation about which you know little to nothing. You could end up buying into a pie-in-the-sky scheme, all because you were enticed by a delicious description. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If there isnt something in it for you, youre apt to be reluctant to extend yourself in any way. However, if there are personal gains to be made, itll be another story.

Sue Akers, a Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner, told Britains media ethics inquiry that the newspaper openly referred to paying its sources and that such payments had been authorized at a senior level. Her comments came the day Murdochs company paid former teen singing sensation Charlotte Church $951,000 in a phone-hacking settlement for violating her and her familys privacy. Akers said Sun journalists had paid not only police officers but also military, health and other government officials. One official received a total of $126,000 over several years, Akers said, and one journalist had been given more than $237,000 in cash to pay his sources. She said payments went far beyond acceptable practices such as buying sources a meal or a drink. Akers said a network of corrupted officials had provided The Sun with stories that were mostly salacious gossip. Akers did not indicate when or if the payments had ended, but Murdoch insisted that practices at The Sun have now changed. As Ive made very clear, we have vowed to do everything we can to get to the bottom of prior wrongdoings in order to set us on the right path for the future, he said in an emailed statement. That process is well under way. The practices Sue Akers described at the Leveson inquiry are ones of the past, and no longer exist at The Sun Akers made her accusations a day after Murdoch launched The Sun on Sunday a replacement for his shuttered, scandal-tainted News of the World. He said the inaugural edition had sold 3.25 million copies more than the News of the World averaged before it was closed. Police are currently conducting three parallel investigations spawned by the hacking scandal, which grew out of revelations that journalists at the News of the Worldroutinely intercepted voice mails of those in the public eye in a relentless search for scoops.

Colonoscopy works Study: Routine test cuts colon cancer death risk A LICIA C HANG AP Science WriterLOS ANGELES Millions of people have endured a colonoscopy, believing the dreaded exam may help keep them from dying of colon cancer. For the first time, a major study offers clear evidence that it does. Removing precancerous growths spotted during the test can cut the risk of dying from colon cancer in half, the study suggests. Doctors have long assumed a benefit, but research hasnt shown before that removing polyps would improve survival the key measure of any cancer screenings worth. Some people skip the test because of the unpleasant steps need to get ready for it. Sure, its a pain in the neck. People complain to me all the time, Its horrible. Its terrible, said Dr. Sidney Winawer, a gastroenterologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York who helped lead the study. But look at the alternative. A second study in Europe found colonoscopies did a better job of finding polyps than another common screening tool tests that look for blood in stool. Both studies were published in Thursdays New England Journal of Medicine. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States and the fourth worldwide. More than 143,000 new cases of cancers of the colon or rectum are expected in the U.S. this year and nearly 52,000 people will die from it, according to the American Cancer Society. Deaths from colorectal cancer have been declining for more than two decades, mostly because of screening including colonoscopies and other tests, the organization says. People of average risk of colon cancer ages 50 to 75 should get screened, but only about half in the U.S. do. A government-appointed panel of experts recommends one of three methods: annual stool blood tests; a sigmoidoscopy (scope exam of the lower bowel) every five years, plus stool tests every three years; or a colonoscopy once a decade. In a colonoscopy, a thin, flexible tube with a tiny camera is guided through the large intestine. Growths can be snipped off and checked for cancer. Patients are sedated, but many dread the test because it requires patients to eat a modified diet and drink solutions the day before to clear out the bowel. It usually costs more than $1,000, compared with a $20 stool test. Researchers at Sloan-Kettering previously showed that removing polyps during colonoscopy can prevent colon cancer from developing, but it was not clear whether it saved lives. The new study followed 2,602 patients who had precancerous growths removed during colonoscopies for an average of 15 years. Their risk of dying from colon cancer was 53 percent lower than what would be expected among a similar group in the general population 12 patients followed in the study died, versus 25 estimated deaths in the general population. The study was not a randomized trial thats the gold standard in medical research. But Robert Smith, director of screening at the American Cancer Society, said its the first direct evidence that removing polyps can reduce the risk of colon cancer death. Theres no question that these are findings that we can take to the bank, said Smith, who had no role in the research. The National Cancer Institute and several cancer organizations paid for the study. Government and private cancer groups also funded the second study in the journal, led by researchers in Spain. About 53,000 participants were given a colonoscopy or a stool blood test. Both tests found similar numbers of colon cancer cases about 30 in each group. However, colonoscopies found advanced growths in twice as many people 514 versus 231 of those given the stool test. Colonoscopy also found 10 times more people with less serious growths than the stool test did. Neither test proved very appealing only a quarter of patients offered a colonoscopy had one. Similarly, only a third agreed to the offered stool test. The Spanish study is continuing and similar research in the U.S. and Norway that began recently is looking at the long-term impacts of colonoscopy.Follow Alicia Changs coverage at http://www.twitter.com/SciWriAlicia.H EALTH & L IFE D uring the past 20 years, we have made significant strides in the cure rates associated with many different cancers. This is a reflection of better treatments and earlier detection of cancers, highlighting the importance of screening. While most, if not all, of us are aware of the importance of screening, the percentage of people screened for cancer in the U.S. remains below our national target goals for 2020, with rates lower among Asian and Hispanic Americans than other groups. This is according to a Dr. C. Joseph Bennett AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY Rates low for US cancer screening See BENNETT / Page C4 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Secret of cancer lies in genes L ung cancer is the most lethal cancer in the United States. It kills more patients every year than colon, prostate and breast cancer combined. Obviously, we need to save more lives. In lung cancer, if a patient is diagnosed early, we can cure it by surgery. Unfortunately, even if we operate and take out lung cancer in the early stage, it recurs in almost half the cases. These patients are not curable in most cases. This happens because See GANDHI / Page C4 F requently, patients come to my office with complaints of ear pain and facial pain that turns out not to be related to an ear, nose and throat problem, but instead related to the patients teeth. Bruxism is derived from a Greek word and it means habitual grinding or clenching of the teeth. This is something that is more commonly seen in children, but can also be seen in adults. Physicians like myself are often consulted for problems and possible damage that can occur to the teeth, muscles and the jaw joint. Let me take a moment to clarify a couple of things. Tooth grinding is a forceful and rhythmic movement of the teeth so that the teeth surfaces are in contact and movement back and forth can cause pain as well as damage to the teeth. There is a second problem called clenching which is characterized by a prolonged period of forceful contact of the teeth without any movement. They both result in problems. Bruxism is something that is performed basically at a subconscious level and in most instances is unrecognized by the patient. Sometimes it is picked up by a bed partner or a doting parent who is watching their child sleep at night or in some instances, as it occurs in my office, I will see certain physical findings that will lead me to the diagnosis. In children, there is no difference in frequency between males and females and also we Bruxism: Grinding teeth I n the past, the diagnosis of kidney cancer or tumor meant the surgical removal of the entire kidney or radical nephrectomy. This approach has changed in the past two decades. Kidney sparing approach has become the standard of treatment for most tumors that are less than 4 cm in size. Since the pioneering work of the late Dr. Andrew Novick (under who I was privileged to train), at the Cleveland Clinic, the performance of partial kidney removal by temporarily clamping its blood supply has become an accepted and safe treatment for small to moderate sized tumors. The obvious advantage of removing only part of the kidney is the preservation of kidney function, thereby reducing the risk of kidney failure and the need for dialysis in the long term. These kidney-sparing approaches also appear to confer a survival benefit to the patients. Though Dr. Novick popularized his technique many years ago and several studies have clearly demonstrated the equivalence of the procedure to complete removal of the kidney in cancer control, there is wide disparity in the use of such kidney-sparing procedures Advanced surgery for kidney cancer See KUMAR / Page C4 See GRILLO / Page C5 Dr. Denis Grillo EAR, NOSE & THROAT Section C TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE INSIDE Dr. Frank Vascimini / Page C5 Richard Hoffmann / Page C3 Dr. Udaya Kumar UROLOGY TODAY 000AKMN Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeons Failed Laser Spine Surgery Spinal Stenosis Herniated Disc Degenerative Disc Disease Scoliosis Spinal Fractures due to Trauma or OsteoporosisBoard Certified Spine Surgeons Specializing in the Treatment of Back and Leg Pain Due to:Little to no out of pocket expense for most Medicare Patients with secondary insurances.

A: Most people taking prescription medications have seen their out of pocket costs increasing over the past several years, and unfortunately there is no end in sight. Multiple tiers for generic drugs and increased co-pays for specialty drugs are just two examples of these cost increases even if you have insurance. Many people in Medicare prescription programs now enter the doughnut hole much faster with large costs in the hole. While many high-cost drugs are being approved to treat various conditions such as cancers, multiple sclerosis (MS) and many other diseases the most expensive prescription medications today are used to treat rare conditions (orphan drugs) and lifethreatening diseases. Recently, The Most Expensive Medicines in America were discussed in a blog at www.medicalbillingsandcoding. org (2012). I have outlined the top 10 most expensive medicines discussed in this blog. It remains to be seen how our health care system will be able to sustain these high medication costs in the future. Richard P Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years.

across the country. Community urology practices have tended to lag behind major academic centers in the adoption of kidney-sparing procedures. A review of the SEER cancer registry (a national database of cancers) in 2006 showed that only 45 percent of patients with kidney tumors less than 4 cm underwent partial nephrectomy (removal of part of kidney) and instead had the entire kidney removed. In contrast, data from the Cleveland Clinic from 1983 to 2009 showed that 76 percent of patients with kidney tumors less than 7 cm underwent partial nephrectomy. A recent study by Lane et al published in the Journal of Urology, reviewed the changing practice pattern in a community based health system in Michigan. The authors noted an increasing proportion of their patients had kidney sparing procedures during a 12-year period from 1998 to 2010. While only three percent of their patients with kidney tumors had kidney partial nephrectomy in 1998, 69 percent of their patients had the procedure in 2010. This study showed that the functional benefit of kidney preserving surgery done at academic centers can be replicated in community based hospitals. Kidney preserving procedures for cancer have received a significant boost with several advances in techniques and technology through the years. The development of cryotherapy (freezing of tumors), radiofrequency ablation and robotic surgery have given surgeons increasingly sophisticated tools that help preserve valuable kidney function while not compromising on cancer control. Patients with a kidney mass or tumor are usually evaluated using a CT or MRI scan to assess the size of the mass, its relation to the major blood vessels and drainage system of the kidney. The kidney function and the overall medical condition are important considerations before a decision is made in choosing the appropriate treatment suitable for that patient. Not all patients with kidney tumor require surgery. Some patients, especially the elderly, with small kidney tumors may be monitored over time with scans and treatment offered only if the tumor enlarges or causes symptoms. I agree with the findings and recommendations of the scientific study I alluded to earlier, that kidney preserving surgery benefits can and should be available at community based hospitals. The patients of Citrus County no longer have to travel to academic centers to have advanced kidney preserving procedures such as cryotherapy or partial nephrectomy-either open or robotic-assisted. We have the expertise and technology at our community hospitals to meet the higher medical standards and expectations of our urological patients. The availability of laparoscopic and robotic technology means that many patients who require removal of part of their kidney can be managed using a minimally invasive approach with smaller incisions that allows a shorter hospital stay and recovery time. Patients who have large or complex tumors can still be managed here using the open surgical method while preserving the kidney function. As always, treatments should be tailored to suit the patient and not vice versa! Udaya Kumar. M.D., FRCS Urol, Dip.

The report shows that in 2010, the screening rate for breast cancer was 72.4 percent, compared to the 2020 national target of 81 percent, for cervical cancer it was 83 percent, compared to a target of 93 percent, and for colorectal it was 58.6 percent, compared to a target of 70.5 percent. The American Cancer Society continues to strongly recommend screening tests for breast, cervical, prostate, and colorectal cancers. As part of its Healthy People 2020, the US Department of Health and Human Services has set 10-year national targets for such recommended tests as well. For breast, cervical, prostate and colorectal cancer screening, it is recommended that women age 50 and older have a mammogram every year, women who have been sexually active or age 21 to 65 years have a Pap test at least every three years, men older than 40 have a PSA blood test and digital rectal examination every year, and average-risk men and women age 50 to 75 years, should either do a high-sensitivity fecal occult blood test (FOBT) at home every year, undergo a sigmoidoscopy every five years with FOBT every three years, or undergo colonoscopy every 10 years. I have stated before in my column that I feel strongly that the colonoscopy is the best screening tool for colorectal cancer, and it continues to be the gold standard. We must also focus our efforts on increasing the screening rates of several minorities, including those of Asian and Hispanic origin. The data for 2010 shows that screening rates for all four cancers were significantly lower among Asians, and non-Hispanics were more likely to be screened for cervical, prostate, and colorectal cancer than Hispanics. While we have made great strides in screening, screening rates for breast cancer havent changed much in the past 10 years. However, screening rates for colorectal cancer have risen markedly for men and women in the past 10 years, with rates for women rising a bit faster. Rates of screening for all four cancers were significantly lower among those without the usual source of health care or health insurance, as all of you reading this column would expect. It remains troubling that not all Americans were getting the recommended cancer screenings and that disparities across groups persist. Screening can find breast, prostate, cervical, and colorectal cancers at an early stage when treatment is more effective. We must continue to monitor cancer screening rates to improve the health of all Americans, not just those with insurance. The report concludes the fact that the findings reinforce the importance of continuing to monitor disparities across groups, and suggest there is a need for new ways to identify people eligible for cancer screening and more effort needs to go into encouraging its use.

Email firstname.lastname@example.org. BENNETT Continued from Page C1 some microscopic cancer cells have escaped the lung and spread to the distant tissue, like liver, bone, etc., before surgery. These cells eventually grow and form detectable metastatic cancer and that is incurable. If we can find out who is at high risk of recurrence, we may save many of these patients by giving them chemo therapy after surgery. This is because chemotherapy may kill those microscopic cancer cells and so they cannot grow in the future. A new assay that tests 14 genes can clarify the prognosis of patients who are diagnosed with early-stage nonsmall-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and is more accurate than relying on clinical criteria, researchers report in a paper published online today in the Lancet. Clinical criteria are stage, age, sex, size of tumor, etc. By identifying gene-expression patterns associated with a low, medium, and high risk for death, the assay can identify patients whose early stage lung cancer has already likely metastasized and who can benefit from additional therapy such as chemotherapy. The assay was developed by UCSF researchers, and then licensed to and developed further at Pinpoint Genomics (based in Mountain View, Calif.). It tests for 11 cancer-related target genes and three reference genes. The first validation study was conducted independently on a masked cohort of 433 patients, all with stageI NSCLC, at several community Kaiser Permanente Northern California hospitals. The assay predicted that five-year overall survival would be achieved by 71 percent of patients identified as being at low risk, 58 percent identified as being at intermediate risk, and 49 percent identified as being at high risk. The next step the researchers are planning is a prospective clinical trial in patients identified as being at high risk; they will be randomized to either observation or chemotherapy. This trial will directly test the effectiveness of the application of guidelines for adjuvant treatment on the basis of this molecular enhancement of risk stratification in patients with stageI disease. However, the results will not be available for some time the accrual alone for this trial will take five to seven years and there will be additional years for follow-up, they note. Such genetic tests are highly helpful in breast and colon cancer, lymphoma, even today. We are realizing that many secrets of cancer are in genes. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

note that by the time the child gets permanent teeth it seems the vast majority of cases have resolved themselves. There are multiple causes for bruxism and they can include stress, tension, and psychological issues which probably head up the group. This can manifest itself from frustration, anxiety, anger, fear and there are some studies that suggest that bruxism does stop, as mentioned after the permanent teeth come in and some children then resort to nail biting. In adults, bruxism is seen likewise in stressful situations. Adults who are under a great deal of stress like the police, the military, and people who have jobs that put them under a great deal of stress as well as Type A compulsive overachiever people seem to be plagued with this problem. The second most common cause is usually in adults only and has to do with dental problems and the patients bite being off, so-to-speak. This could include teeth that are not aligned, fillings that are too high, possibly some old trauma from a jaw fracture and also ill-fitting partials and dentures as well as missing teeth; all contribute to this type of problem, which as mentioned is seen mostly in adults. Some studies say that there is a third cause that could include allergy and asthma and this would be more likely to manifest itself in a younger patient population and could even include episodes that are triggered by food allergies. A fourth associated issue with bruxism includes stages of sleep. Patients that have impaired sleep sometimes will clench or grind their teeth during transition from deeper to lighter stages of sleep. This could be stimulated by sounds or light waking the patient up prematurely. Lastly, there are what we call organic problems that can cause bruxism and we see this in patients who have mental retardation and are intellectually challenged and also patients who have suffered brain damage which could occur from trauma secondary to a motor vehicle accident, assault or possibly brain tumors and strokes leaving the patient impaired. There are a few medications that can cause this problem of clenching and grinding but it is very rare. As mentioned, clenching and grinding occurs primarily while asleep but there is a version called bruxomania that occurs during waking hours and usually this is associated with adults and is very silent; no noises are heard and so it is usually undetected and goes unnoticed even by the patient suffering with this problem. Because of the problem with recognizing this issue, diagnosis is equally sometimes difficult, but if a physician is looking for this particular problem, they can pick up asymmetrical opening and closing of the jaw that might give them some idea, side-to-side movement of the jaw and also patients when questioned might be more conscious of their teeth when normally we are not really aware of our teeth and might notice some soreness upon awakening or some tenderness when biting certain types of food. Examination also will demonstrate the jaw muscles being very large and firm and hard and that is a give-away in some instances. Loose teeth, sensitivity to the gums and teeth also can be picked up on examination. If one looks at their teeth and sees a flattening of the surface, that also can be a classic sign of bruxism. In other instances, flat surfaces and sharp edges can also indicate this on examination of the teeth. Once patients are aware this condition is suspected, they will sometimes volunteer more information such as having a tired feeling in their jaw muscles, soreness in the morning and sensitivity to cold liquids. The damage done by bruxism is usually permanent and not reversible and there can be problems associated with the jaw joint as well causing ear and facial pain and headaches. Treatment depends on the patients age. A child with baby teeth, you may let the patient just grow out of it. If it is an adult, good examination and correction of the underlying problems, fixing a bad filling or a fractured tooth or dealing with the patients personal situation, particularly if there is stress, anxiety and fears that could be dealt with might result in, not only the patient feeling better but getting relief of their bruxism. Sometimes physical activity for children is a good release for pent-up anxieties and with adults, sometimes we enlist the help of our psychiatric colleagues to help us out. Good examination and consultation with a dentist to address any untreated periodontal disease is necessary. Most of these measures work quite well but if not, there are other things available, such as bite guards to wear at night. They can be purchased over the counter or be custom made by dentists. Oral exercises to loosen up the muscles or physical therapy massage might be helpful and even biofeedback works very well with some patients.

Q : Each week, I look forward to reading your weekly column as I find it most interesting and have learned so much from it. I have not seen any information on the request I am inquiring about. Over the years (starting in the s), I have had several crowns put on my teeth and am now noticing that my gums are now receding away from the crown exposing a black line at the gum line. I am wondering if there is a procedure that can be done to fill in the dark space. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the crowns, so I would hate to replace them just to eliminate the dark gum line. I am also wondering if the recession will get worse over time or if there is something I can do, such as a brushing technique, to prevent it from getting worse. Oh, and one other thing, is there any way I can whiten the crowns, as they definitely could use it. Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing your answer. A: Thank you reading my columns. I enjoy writing them and always love hearing that someone enjoys them and is learning something. The question that you brought up is a very common question that comes up regularly in my office. Please know that you are not alone in your experiences. Unfortunately, there is nothing simple that can be done to accomplish what you are looking to do getting rid of that ugly black line around the crown. That being said, there are a few comments I would like to make. First, and perhaps the most encouraging, is that I did a procedure on a patient this week that might be successful in getting rid of the black line as well. This patient had decay on her very front crown at the margin of where the crown meets the tooth. She had some recession, as you do, but not enough that all of the margins of the decayed area were visible. Because of this, while repairing this area I was able to retract the gums adequately enough to get to the decay without damaging the tissue, cleaned out the decay, and placed a composite or tooth colored filling. I routinely use a magnification of 2X through the use of loops when doing things like this, however, there are times that I will even use my surgical microscope that can go up to a power of 20, if necessary. Twenty power would not normally be used for something like this but comes in handy during some root-canal procedures. Because porcelain is glass, and composite is not, the colors can be the same and reflect light differently. As a result, the overall appearance is noticeable between the two but acceptable to most people. I was pleased with the result and so was this patient. Please realize that, depending on how particular you are, this method of repair may not be suitable to you. In those cases the best way to get an amazing result is to redo the crown. As you probably realize, this is quite involved and costly. Another thing that pertains to this is the type of crown used originally. You likely have a crown that has a metal substructure that goes right to the edge of the crown and is covered with porcelain. This was a very common way to make a crown in the past and, depending on the type of preparation the dentist did, the lab may have had enough room to make it look decent. A nicer way to do this is to have an all porcelain margin that would hide the metal that presents as the black line you mentioned. Still another way to do it is to use an all-porcelain crown. Each dentist has his or her own preference on which way to do this and what materials to use. If you were to make new crowns this information would be critical. In regard to the recession getting worse in the future that is hard to say. There are many reasons for recession. If it is strictly your toothbrushing method or the actual toothbrush, that is easily changed. If it is something to do with your bite or the possibility that you clench or grind your teeth, it is much less likely to stop happening. There are things that the dentist can recommend to help this but most patients are not usually compliant over the long term. This would be one of the scenarios where the materials chosen to remake the crowns and the type of crowns used will be critical. As for whitening the crowns as they are that is impossible. The only way to change the color of them is to remake them. I hope I have helped in some way even though I know what I had to say is not what you wanted to hear. Good luck.

T he weekend of Feb. 4 and 5 was an entertainment feast for Citrus County, with the soft sounds of Carol Kline to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Central Ridge on Feb. 4 and the fabulous Do Wop Show on Feb. 5 to benefit Take Stock in Children. Both events took place at the Curtis Peterson Auditorium in Lecanto. It was 1950s and s nostalgia at its purest and best. Since 2009, more than 400 children have participated at Boys & Girls Clubs Central Ridge facility. The concert opened with the singing of the national anthem led by 12-year-old Sophie Robitaille followed by her flawless singing of The Rose and You Light Up My Life. Klines return to Citrus was evident of her staying power with local fans. Having been the opening act for such country stars as the Hager Twins and Little Jimmy Dickens and Branson, Mo., gigs and her passion for keeping the memory of Patsy Cline and Elvis alive, it was toe-tapping time when Kline and her Lovebucket husband brought us Teddy Bear, an Elvis classic. Memories of Dotty West and Kenny Rogers were evoked as Kline brought us Together Again. Her tidbits of commentary about the stars she paid tribute to were a welcome addition to concert fare. We learned that Eddie Arnold began as a guitarist at 18 and had 13 songs on the top 10 charts and that his comeback song was Make the World Go Away in 1964. Lovingly, the duo paid tribute to Patsy Cline with several of her hits including I Fall to Pieces, which made her a household name in 1960. My favorite Cline song, Sweet Dreams, was beautifully performed by Kline. Revealing that their daughter, Major Christine Ratliff, was injured in the line of duty in the military, we stood in her honor and joined with the Klines in the singing of God Bless the USA with a promise to keep her daughter and her family, including two children, in our prayers as she continues treatment for her head injury. David DeCarlo and Pat Lancaster were on hand to welcome the Do Wop fans and Lola Fay and the Saints to benefit the Dollars For Scholars. David Meehe and Paisley Greer led the pledge to the flag and Greer performed the national anthem. The Black Diamond Foundation presented Take Stock with a $10,000 donation for scholarships. We learned that 55 students in the program have graduated from college, 35 are enrolled in college now and 29 in our local high schools are in this years program. Lola and the Saints was pure 1950s and s rock n roll with all of the oldies and goldies we love so well. From the Pittsburg era, we heard Since I Dont Have You. Into the audience, the group serenaded the fans individually with Once in a While and Till Then, sometimes handing the mic to a fan to echo the lyrics. Rockin in earnest, we heard At My Front Door (Crazy Little Mama) and Whos That Knockin At My Door. Who could forget Just One Look and the originally censored Be My Baby, harmonizing hits that we rarely hear in todays music world. Recalling Blue Moon, the local 1960s Jr. Women sang for various civic groups entertainment. We wore pale green dresses made by one of the members and our sheet music was in a folder covered with leftover cloth matching our dresses. We learned that Embraceable You was a 1928 hit originally. Motown nostalgia permeated the hit music the Saints love to perform, including a Smokey Robinson tribute. This memory-making afternoon came to a close with the groups I Believe, in dedication to the veterans in the audience who stood and were recognized, and to the memory of the 9/11 heroes.

IVETTA SEVERANCE / Special to the Chronicle
E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, F EBRUARY28, 2012 C7 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Alija Izetbegovic, the first president of Bosnia and Herzegovina, said, We play an active role and try to influence our destiny; we have our own trump cards and we use them. When a defender uses a trump card, declarer should try to make sure he is ruffing a loser, not a winner. And that is the key point to this deal. Against six hearts, West leads the club queen. Since there seem to be 12 top tricks (two spades, five hearts, three diamonds and two clubs), South takes that trick with his king, cashes his heart ace and plays a trump to dummys queen, learning that he has an unexpected loser there when West discards a spade. How should declarer continue? Norths response depends upon partnership agreement. When two no-trump is natural and game-forcing, it is easy. If two no-trump would be the Jacoby Forcing Raise, North must start with two clubs (unless three no-trump would show 13 to 15 points and 4-3-3-3 distribution). An easy-looking contract has suddenly become difficult. The secret is not to permit East to ruff a diamond honor. Declarer should cash the diamond ace and play a diamond toward his hand. East ought to discard, so South wins with his king, returns to the dummy in a black suit, and leads the last diamond. Again, East should pitch, but declarer wins and ruffs his last diamond on the board to lose only that one trump trick.

She has a grown daughter from her first marriage. I watched Lori grow up and love her as my own. My wife always has been fiercely defensive of Lori. I cant say anything remotely negative or critical about her without risking a big argument. Even the suggestion of having Lori help around the house or clean up her room would cause a fight. Lori is a good kid, but she has never wanted for anything. My wife makes no secret of the fact that Lori comes first in her life. Lori is now in her early 20s and is a senior in college. Even though she is taking only two classes a week, she doesnt have a job and is unmotivated to get one. My wife makes all kinds of excuses for her. Meanwhile, we pay all of her expenses, including her rent. Im disabled and on a small fixed income, and my wife is selfemployed. We struggle with our finances while Lori lives a carefree life. It is causing friction in our marriage. We tried counseling, but my wife refused to discuss anything related to Lori and quit going. Lori calls her mother every hour, and my wife encourages it. Lori has no other friends, and all of my wifes attentions are focused on her daughter. I get very little. Is this normal behavior? Concerned for Our Future Dear Concerned : No, its not normal for a collegeage daughter to have no friends but Mom, and for a mother to encourage so much dependence. Such an enmeshed relationship is not only bad for your marriage. It also is crippling for Lori. Instead of helping her daughter learn self-reliance, Mom is being selfish by holding Lori so close that she deliberately prevents her from becoming an independent adult. We hope you can make your wife understand that this is poor parenting and in no ones best interest. Dear Annie : What is the etiquette when you go to someones home and its overly hot in the summer and too cold in winter? A lot of my friends homes are uncomfortable for me, and I have been asking them to adjust their thermostats. A trusted pal recently told me she thought this was rude, especially when it doesnt trouble other guests. She suggested I wear layers and tough it out. What do you suggest I do? Too Hot or Too Cold Dear Too : Wear layers and tough it out. Etiquette says you dont get to tell your friends how to heat and cool their homes. And if you are the only one discomfited by the temperature, the problem is you and not the thermostat. Please see your doctor for a checkup. Dear Annie: I had to smile at the letter from Road Worrier. When we started to get calls that our 92-year-old father was driving through stop signs and red lights and running into cars in the parking lot, we gave his car keys to his caregiver and said shed take him where he needed to go. When he died, I sent his suit to the funeral home. I later got a call saying they found a car key in the pocket. Later, we spoke to Dads neighbor, who said when the caregiver would go to church on Sundays, my father would come out of the house five minutes later, put his walker in the backseat of the car and drive off. Hed return 15 minutes before the caregiver came back. We dont know where he went for those four hours, but were glad nothing happened to him or anyone else. When they started to close his coffin, I put that key back in his pocket and told him, OK, Dad, now you can drive Mama all over heaven. L.A.
