New numbers released Tuesday by the Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation showed Citrus Countys jobless rate remained the same at 11.3 percent, which is down from January 2011s rate of 12.7 percent. Regionally, the jobless rate in January was 11.3 percent, down 0.1 percent from Decembers rate and about 1.7 percentage points lower than Januarys rate last year. Out of a regional labor force of 203,551, there were 22,918 unemployed or 319 fewer jobless than in December 2011, according to the state economic agency. At the same time, the size of the regional labor force shrank by 2,368 over the month and the number of those employed dropped by 1,575 to 180,633. According to Workforce Connection, which serves Citrus, Levy and Marion counties, January employment numbers were released this week; Februarys numbers will not be released until near the end of March. This schedule is routine each year due to the states annual benchmarking process. That process includes revisions to the statistics for previous years, including 2011, the news release stated. John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council (EDC), said Tuesday that while the numbers remained flat, people must put the information in context with the seasonal jobs that hit the market during the months of October, November and December. In addition, he said there has been more hiring in the county, but not enough to offset the unemployment numbers. However, Siefert expressed confidence that once February and March numbers become available, the numbers will show a slight improvement in the job market. County Commissioner Joe Meek, EDC president, focused on the positives Tuesday as he pointed to how the unemployment rate has dropped from an all-time high of 14.2 percent in 2010. In addition, the average median income has See JOBS / Page A2 Strawberry bounty MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Workers race to fill their flats with strawberries Monday morning at Ferris Farms in Floral City. The price of the sweet fruit has dropped recently due to a bumper crop of berries across the state. S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterFLORAL CITY It was flat after flat of sweet, delicious strawberries at this years Floral City Strawberry Festival. The unseasonably warm winter meant a bumper crop for many strawberry producers in the state, including Citrus Countys own Ferris Farms in Floral City. It caused the plants to do well, said Dudley Calfee, general manager of Ferris Farms. Were picking a lot of berries. While the abundance of berries may be sweet for the consumer, strawberry farmers are bemoaning this years extraordinary harvest it means turning a profit will be difficult. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a pound of strawberries on March 2 was selling at major grocery stores for an average of $2.15 an 8-cent drop from the previous week and a 28-cent drop from last year at the same time. However, Calfee explains it really is just basic economics. Its simple supply and demand, he said. Since there are so many berries, its natural the prices will go down. But after weathering two brutal winters back to back, Calfee believes many strawberry growers are enjoying the benefits of warmer weather just as much as the consumers are enjoying the good prices. Strawberry-picking at Ferris Farms will finish the end of this month. Next will be blueberry season and Calfee isnt too sure how the warm winter affected the blueberry crop because they do require a certain amount of time in weather under 45 degrees, but above 35 degrees. While he expects to have fewer berries than last year, Calfee said Warmer winter leads to bumper crop locally and statewide Associated PressWASHINGTON Rick Santorum won the Alabama primary Tuesday night and clung to a lead over Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney in Mississippi, deeply conservative Southern crossroads in the struggle for the Republican presidential nomination. We did it again, exulted Santorum before cheering supporters in Lafayette, La. He has long sought to emerge as Romneys sole rival from the right. Romney, the faraway front-runner in the delegate chase, bristled in the hours before the votes were counted, saying Santorum was at the desperate end of his campaign. But it was Gingrich with the most to lose as he struggled for political survival in a part of the country he hoped would fuel one more comeback in the unpredictable race to pick an opponent to President Barack Obama. There were 107 Republican National Convention delegates at stake on Tuesday, 47 in Alabama, 37 in Mississippi, 17 in Hawaii caucuses and six more in caucuses in American Samoa. In Alabama, with 67 percent of the precincts counted, Santorum was pulling 35 percent of the vote, Gingrich had 30 percent and Romney 28 percent. Returns from 85 percent of Mississippis precincts showed Santorum with 33 percent, Gingrich 31 percent and Romney 30. Rep. Ron Paul, the fourth contender, made little effort in the states on the days ballot. Evangelicals played an outsized role in both primary states, underscoring the challenge to Romney. In Mississippi and Alabama, 80 percent or more of voters leaving their polling places said they were born again Christians or evangelical. Those voters have been reluctant to rally to Romneys side in the primaries and caucuses to date. Among them, Santorum bested Romney by 9 points in Alabama and 4 points in Mississippi. More broadly, the exit polls showed a primary electorate that was conservative, determinedly Republican and profoundly unhappy about the government. In Mississippi, more than eight in 10 voters said they were dissatisfied or angry with the federal government, while in Alabama, Santorum victorious in Ala., leads in Miss.

SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS To the prosecution, Christopher Ryan Rainey was an alcohol-addled man who rapped on the door of a residence of total strangers the day before Independence Day 2010, then tried to kick it in. When Rainey was confronted, the state claims, he pulled a gun out, lowered his ski mask, pointed the firearm at the man and demanded to be let into the home and told another resident to get on her knees. A tussle ensued and Rainey was allegedly pistolwhipped with his own weapon and fled with a waiting accomplice only to be found moments later by authorities drenched in his own blood, slurring his speech, shoeless and huddled in the passenger seat of an SUV. In the first day of Raineys trial before a seven-person jury in Circuit Court Judge Ric Howards courtroom, prosecutor Paul Norville told jurors what Rainey did that night was plain and simple: burglary while armed and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. After Norvilles opening salvo, defense attorney Mark Rodriguez took a starkly different line on events that night. While Rodriguez conceded his client was high on pills at the time, he insisted to jurors Rainey went to the home in Inverness because it was a place he bought pills from, but ended up in an altercation with one of the witnesses, Brian Hammerlee. There is no evidence of fingerprints on a gun or his connection to a ski mask, Rodriguez told jurors. He went on to grill successive witnesses about possible links between some residents of the home and Rainey, and he hammered Citrus County Sheriffs Office personnel for their failures to interview all the residents of the home, lack of testing on items like the ski mask and gun and failure of deputies to provide medical aid to a bleeding Rainey when he was detained. But prosecutor Norville also kept coming back with witness assertions that none of the residents of the home ever knew Rainey before July 3, 2010. The matriarch of the family, Dee Perozzi, was first on the stand and, in emotionally charged testimony, described the events of the harrowing evening. The prosecution also played audio of the 911 call Perozzi made while her son Brian was allegedly wresting a 22-caliber pistol from Rainey in the homes front lawn. Hammerlee told the court he was watching television in his brothers room next to the homes garage when he heard banging on the door. Hammerlee said when he went outside to investigate, he ran into Rainey, who told him, I am Chris; I was here earlier and you are gonna let me into this house. He said Rainey then pulled out a gun, pointed it at him and was trying to make him walk back into the house. It was then that Hammerlees sister Desiree Hammerlee reportedly appeared, and he said Rainey immediately ushered him aside and pointed the gun at his sisters temple and told her to get down on her knees. While Raineys attention was on his sister, Hammerlee knocked Rainey to the ground and wrested the gun from him. Hammerlee said he repeatedly hit Rainey over the head with the pistol until it broke apart and all the bullets fell out. He said Rainey also was able to hit him a few times during the fight, causing a cut on his face. He said Raineys alleged accomplice, Sharmark Powell, who was in a silver SUV at the time, came up behind him and knocked him to the ground. He reportedly found himself in a battle with both Powell and Rainey, who soon fled in the vehicle, leaving behind the broken gun and a shoe, among other items. A short time later, deputy Joe Casola apprehended Powell and Rainey on County Road 486 in response to a bulletin to be on the lookout for the SUV they were riding in, he told jurors. Testimony continues in the case at 9 a.m. today.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

At Misty Meadows Blueberry Farm in Inverness, owner Rhonda Scheiterle said she still had about another month and a half before the blueberries would be ripe enough to eat. However, she said the warmer weather means there was earlier budding, and the few hard freezes the area did experience created a loss for the farm. We lost some buds in the first freeze in the beginning of January, Scheiterle said. She also noted the lack of chill hours possibly having a negative effect on the number of berries her plants will produce this year, but despite the odds, shes remaining confident she will have plenty for people to pick.

MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Strawberries have become a major crop at Ferris Farms in Floral City. BOUNTY Continued from Page A1 AFL-CIO boosts ground support for Obama Associated PressORLANDO The AFLCIO formally endorsed President Barack Obamas re-election bid Tuesday, saying it would mount a vast door-to-door effort for Democratic candidates in response to the flood of outside political money that conservative groups are pouring into the campaign. The labor federation said its strategy is to devote less money than it did in 2008 to specific candidates campaigns and Democratic campaign organizations and put more emphasis on oldfashioned, get-out-the-vote shoe-leather. AFLCIO political director Mike Podhorzer said up to 400,000 union members will be staffing phone banks and knocking on doors to persuade voters to support federal, state and local candidates. Were not going to ever raise anything like the kind of money that our opponents have, Podhorzer said. But the power of people talking to each other, friends talking to friends, friends talking to neighbors, is always going to trump these cheap negative ads. The strategy, announced at the AFL-CIOs annual winter executive council meeting near Disney World, marks a shift from two years ago, when about two-thirds of organized labors political spending went directly to candidates and party campaign committees, Podhorzer said. Unions hope to take advantage of a 2010 Supreme Court decision that allows union campaign workers to stop at the homes of any voter, not just those of union members, Podhorzer said. The same ruling allows corporations and unions to spend unlimited cash in support of, or against, candidates for elected office. Union leaders have said they plan to spend more this election cycle than the $400 million they say they spent helping elect Obama and other Democrats in 2008.

The Concordia accident, in which 32 people died when the ship ran aground in January off the coast of Italy, cast a long shadow over this years Cruise Shipping Miami conference. The annual meeting draws thousands of people who work in the cruise and travel industries in more than 100 countries. Costas parent company, Carnival Corp., the worlds largest cruise operator, said booking trends are running behind last year, leading it last week to slash 2012 profit forecasts nearly in half. Miami-based Carnivals brands also include Princess Cruises, Holland America Line and Cunard Line. As everyone here well knows, the Concordia incident has focused considerable attention on our industry, Carnival Corp. vice chairman and COO Howard Frank said in his keynote address. While most of this attention has been negative, and we are clearly seeing some setbacks in the short term, we have faced similar setbacks in the past, and in each case we have shown tremendous resiliency in bouncing back. Frank, who is also chairman of the Cruise Lines International Association trade group, said that in the aftermath of Concordia, cruise lines are re-emphasizing passenger and crew safety, implementing a comprehensive, top-tobottom review of our shipboard safety and emergency response procedures. That will include improved emergency muster training for all passengers prior to departure. Late last month, another Costa ship caught fire and lost power, leaving passengers without working toilets, running water or air conditioning for three days.

The flea market also has a large selection of fresh produce, live plants and other food items to keep you nourished during your vis it.

Opinions pour out over sidewalks C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterSidewalks came up during discussions Tuesday at a special Land Development Code (LDC) Workshop. First, Development Services Director Vince Cautero gave a presentation covering many topics among several chapters of the LDC to the assembled Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Representing the interests of the Citrus County Builders Association, Gaston Hall told the board about issues still to be resolved with the code. Among many issues, Hall recommended eliminating the requirements for sidewalks in Chapter 7, as sidewalks are expensive and not always wanted or necessary. If buyers want them, theyll mandate it, Hall said. Cautero disagreed. More county residents are using areas for walking and cycling. With no sidewalks, people are having to walk in the streets, Cautero said. The board had differing views, with Commissioner Rebecca Bays saying she would not want a sidewalk in front of her house, and raised the issue of cost. Cautero said sidewalks should be a community issue about quality of life, and cost should be considered in long-term value. Commissioner John JJ Kenney said his neighborhood in Sugarmill Woods has no sidewalks, but is now retrofitting some bike baths. Ken Frink, public works director, said the LDC has an out clause to allow for an exemption from the sidewalk requirement in some situations. Hall, however, countered that it lacked criteria. Commissioner Dennis Damato said sidewalks would become part of future development when the county starts building more multiple family projects because singlefamily units are getting beyond the reach of most people. The code has to reflect what the markets got, said Damato, who added that hed like to see sidewalks everywhere. Many issues were raised by Inverness residents Dr. Pat Wade and John Wade, Citrus County Council President Theodora Rusnak and Inverness attorney Clark Stillwell. Among the topics were standards for stormwater drainage, biological surveys, impact fees and permit costs. The workshop was one of several to bring local regulations into state compliance, with the LDC to be finalized in June.

Flea-market frenzy Businesses: Add social media to marketing strategy S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterWhen Skip Staab created a Facebook page for the first time nearly four months ago, his original intent was to keep in touch with his other potter friends and show off a few new works of art in the process. But then he started fielding questions from people wanting to know if certain items were for sale and if so, how much? I didnt realize (creating a Facebook page) would lead to sales, he said Tuesday. Since Christmas, Staab, owner of Pine Tree Pottery & Skips Rustic Furniture in Homosassa, said he has sold at least a dozen pieces, and now that he has a store set up on his fan page, the possibilities of expanding his small business are endless. Its successes like these and more that inspired the Citrus County Business Resource Alliance Partners to offer a workshop designed to educate small business owners on how to use social media to drive more customers to their businesses. The workshop, Social Media Strategies and Live Tutorial, will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, at the College of Central Florida Learning Center in Lecanto. Those in attendance will learn how to incorporate social media into their marketing strategy and also have the opportunity to set up a company page step-bystep on Facebook during the live tutorial segment. The featured presenter is Gina Smith, a marketing strategistand president of Casto Communications. Smith specializes in helping businesses and agencies become more profitable through strategic planning, marketing, media relations and resource development. Staab, who will be attending the workshop, said he is hoping to learn how to get the word out about his Facebook fan page and store so more people will look at and Like it. Angela Davis, who coowns Pepper Creek Pottery in Homosassa, feels social media is the future when it comes to operating and trying to promote a small business. She also has recently seen success with her company Facebook page. An item she displayed on her page sold within 15 minutes of posting the picture of it. As she works to set up a store on her page, Davis said she has a number of people follow their work on Facebook and as a result, she receives a lot of inquires and visits to her store. Its going to be a revolution for the small business world, she said. It gives people an idea of what were about and what were doing. The cost of the workshop is $15 for members of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, the Citrus County Economic Development Council, the Small Business Development Center at the University of North Florida and SCORE, and $20 for the public.

Fla. lawmakers ready for redistricting session Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court has given the Legislature very specific guidelines for redrawing state Senate districts when the Republican-controlled Legislature convenes a 15-day special session on Wednesday. Fridays 5-2 ruling upheld the 120-district House map but invalidated eight of the 40 Senate districts. It also struck down the Senates district renumbering scheme that increased the chances of incumbents to serve 10 years instead of just eight before being term-limited out of office. The justices cited various violations of the new Fair Districts amendment on legislative redistricting and suggested ways to bring the map into compliance. I believe that guidance is specific and helpful, said Senate Reapportionment Committee Chairman Don Gaetz. It is incumbent upon the Senate now to follow the direction that the court has provided us. Gaetz, R-Niceville, and his House counterpart, Redistricting Committee Chairman Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, agree on what role each chamber will play. We dont anticipate that the House will be micromanaging the Senates process, Gaetz said. Chairman Weatherford and I have a gentlepersons agreement that we will defer to the House on House business and that the House will defer to the Senate on Senate business. Were going to show deference to them, Weatherford acknowledged. Its their map. The Supreme Court ruled the Senate map violated the amendment by intentionally favoring incumbents and the Republican Party, drawing districts that were not compact and failing to follow political and geographic boundaries whenever feasible. The ruling also faulted the Senate for relying solely on voting-age population in attempting to comply with another provision that protects the ability of racial and language minorities to elect legislators of their choice. The justices noted other states and the U.S. Justice Department, which must review Floridas maps for compliance with the federal Voting Rights Act, use registration numbers and analyses of performance in past elections. A congressional redistricting map, meanwhile, is being challenged in state Circuit Court. Senate lawyers on Monday asked a Tallahassee judge to delay it until after this years elections, arguing theres not enough time. The Florida Democratic Party will oppose the delay, said its chairman, Rod Smith. He said on Tuesday its a stalling tactic because the congressional map has some of the same problems the Supreme Court found in the Senate plan. The Democrats and three nonpartisan groups that backed the Fair Districts amendments, one each for legislative and congressional redistricting, are challenging the congressional plan. Smith said no decision has yet been made on whether to challenge details of the state House map in trial court, although the Supreme Court has given it general approval. Gaetz long, narrow district, which hugs the coastline for about 100 miles in the western Panhandle, is among those invalidated. It slices through county lines, creating a similarly elongated inland district to the north for Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker. 2012 SESSION

Officials in Miami said Tuesday the boat was carrying 54 bales of cocaine weighing more than 3,500 pounds. Four suspected smugglers aboard the 35-foot speedboat were taken into custody and will likely face drug trafficking charges. The boat was spotted March 3 by the crew of a helicopter dispatched from the 270-foot Coast Guard Cutter Northland. Officials said the seizure was part of Operation Martillo, aimed at halting smuggling of drugs, weapons and cash in waters off Central America. The operation involves several U.S. agencies and Latin American nations. The Northlands homeport is Portsmouth, Va. Assisting was the 110-foot cutter Pea Islan,d based in Key West. Casey Anthonys trial pushed back ORLANDO Casey Anthonys defamation trial has been pushed back to next year. Circuit Judge Lisa Munyon issued an order Tuesday saying the trial will start in the first week of 2013. Anthony was acquitted last year of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. After Caylee disappeared in the summer of 2008, Anthony told investigators that a baby sitter named Zenaida Gonzalez had kidnapped the toddler. A woman with that name sued Anthony, claiming her reputation had been ruined. During her murder trial, Anthonys attorney told jurors that the baby sitter story was fabricated. Both Anthonys attorneys and attorneys for Gonzalez requested the postponement. Anthony is serving a year of probation at an undisclosed location in Florida for an unrelated charge. Tampa considers $6 million for radios TAMPA Tampa City Commissioners will debate whether to buy 1,765 handheld radios, 163 vehicle-mounted radios, plus equipment to accommodate more dispatchers at a cost of $6 million for the Republican National Convention. The commission meets Thursday. Police have already endorsed the plan, saying it will put every officer on the same radio system, no matter where the officer is from or the assignment. Tampa Police Department is expected to rotate most of its 1,000-officer force into convention security during the event, which begins Aug. 27 and could draw up to 45,000 people. An additional 3,000 officers from other agencies around the state will work the event. The Tampa Bay Times reported that money for the radios would come from a $50 million federal grant for convention security.Last of 3 jailed in evil spirit scam FORT LAUDERDALE The last of three women convicted in a scam promising people their money could be cleansed of evil spirits has been sent to federal prison. A judge in Fort Lauderdale on Monday sentenced 22year-old Olivia Evans to 15 months behind bars. Her mother-in-law and that womans sister were previously sentenced to prison for their roles in the scam. They also must pay restitution to victims. Prosecutors say the women persuaded people to send them money to be cleansed of evil spirits in exchange for a service fee. Instead, the women kept the money for themselves. Prosecutors said they also got victims to send expensive Rolex watches with prisms, claiming they were vortexes into which demons were supposedly sent. The trio kept the watches, two of which were recovered by investigators. Legal notices in todays Citrus County Chronicle 000AN36 Lien Notices . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterINGLIS Voters headed to Inglis Town Hall on Tuesday and voted no on the heated issue to disband the Inglis Police Department. The issue, which has disrupted the quiet town, was voted down by a count of 273 to 234 votes. Im relieved. Im happy for my guys, Inglis Police Department Chief Steve Dixon said. Im thrilled that my guys will have a job, and this police department will survive. And we will be able to give our residents the security and the protection that they deserve. Dixon said the voters broke a previous record for voter turnout at 278. He said the polls closed about five minutes late because voters had formed a line outside the door at the hall waiting to get inside to cast their vote. If theyre in line, they can vote, he said. Im just happy we had almost double the votes, Glenda Kirkland, a candidate for the towns commission, said. Its sad that it took this to get people out to vote. Craig and Cindy Griffin, Inglis residents, said they supported keeping the police department. Wow, thats closer than I would have thought, Cindy said when she heard the voting tally. Ive never seen this town so busy. One of their concerns is that it would have cost the town more money for less police coverage if Levy County Sheriffs Office took over. With this being such a controversial election, I think a lot more people know whats going on, she said. If you dont get involved in your own neighborhood and protect your own home, how can anybody complain about anything? This means the destiny of the towns five-man police force will stay in the town of Inglis hands, and the sheriffs office will not take over all of the policing of the small towns streets. Id just like to say Im proud of the people for getting it on the ballot, Michael Andrew White, a candidate for the towns commission, said. Its a win either way. At least people got the right to vote. Voters also decided to reelect the towns incumbents, to fill three commission seats. Richard Kellman (320), Sherry Ely (285) and Drinda Merritt (273) won over White (242) and Kirkland (231). The incumbents will be sworn in again April 2. Kirkland said Merritt was the only commissioner who voted against allowing the public to vote on the police department issue. I was just surprised that people would vote for someone who voted no, not allowing us to vote on the referendum, Kirkland said. The people voted, and they voted for what they wanted, thats what its all about. I hope they come out and vote in all the elections in the future. 80 percent said they would definitely vote for the Republican candidate against Obama next fall, no matter who he is. While Alabama and Mississippi are among the most conservative states in the country and share a long border, the exit polls showed significant differences in the voters reaction to the candidates. In Mississippi, Romney had the support of 30 percent of primary voters who earn under $50,000 a year, compared with 26 percent in Alabama. He drew the backing of 33 percent of Mississippi primary voters with no college education, compared with 27 percent in Alabama. Only about half of all voters in each state said they work fulltime for pay, and they, too, voted differently one state from the other. Santorum outpolled Romney, 39 percent to 23 percent among that group in Alabama. The two men tied among that group in Mississippi. As has been true in earlier primaries, the economy was the most important issue to voters, and an ability to defeat Obama the most important quality when it came time to pick a candidate. The exit polls were based on interviews with 1,552 voters as they left 30 randomly selected polling places around Alabama, and with 1,575 Mississippi voters from 30 sites. Each survey had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. The Southern showdown came as new polling showed a decline in Obamas approval ratings a reversal amid escalating gasoline prices and turbulence in the Middle East. The day began with Romney leading the delegate competition by far in The Associated Press count, with 454 of the 1,144 needed to win the nomination. Santorum had 217, Gingrich 107 and Paul 47. That gave the former Massachusetts governor more than his rivals combined. And while Santorum in particular challenges the mathematical projections, Romney is amassing delegates at a rate that puts him on track to clinch control of the nomination before the convention next summer. Romney, campaigning in Missouri, took exception to a television commercial airing in both Southern states and said Santorum is at the desperate end of his campaign. The commercial was backed by a super PAC that supports the former senator, not by him. Santorums camp had earlier issued a memo that dismissed as fuzzy math Romneys claim that he is on track to amass a delegate majority. Simply put, time is on our side, it said. Gingrichs aides issued a rebuttal of their own with the polls still open in the primary states. It said the primaries were not yet half over, and the former House speaker is well positioned to win the GOP nomination. The large amount of television advertising was testimony to the importance the contenders and their allies attached to the primaries in both Alabama and Mississippi. All three candidates as well as super PACs supporting each of them ran television commercials. As has been the case all year, Restore Our Future, which backs Romney, spent more than any of the others. The group put down $1.3 million for television ads in Alabama, another $900,000 in Mississippi and more for radio on Christian and other radio stations as well as thousands of pieces of mail designed to help the former Massachusetts governor. It was only in recent days that Romney seemed to sense a chance in Alabama and Mississippi, and he responded by increasing his television ad expenditures and his plans for campaigning in the states. Born in Michigan and a longtime resident of Massachusetts, he told one audience the two primaries were a bit of an away game for him and drew laughs from another when he said he hoped to go hunting with an Alabama friend who can actually show me which end of the rifle to shoot. He generally steered away from criticizing his Republican rivals and aimed his rhetoric instead at Obama, whose prospects in both states are as dim next fall as anywhere in the country. Santorum campaigned against the president and Romney simultaneously as he sought the support of conservatives who have fueled his recent surge. In Biloxi, Miss., on Monday, he ridiculed the science behind global warming. The dangers of carbon dioxide? Tell that to a plant, how dangerous carbon dioxide is, he said. Gingrich spent part of his time pushing back against suggestions including from his own staff that he might drop out if he didnt notch a pair of Southern victories. His only two wins so far came in the South Carolina primary on Jan 21, and last week, when he won his political home state of Georgia. Initial polls showed the former House speaker in a strong position in both states, but he abruptly canceled a campaign trip to Kansas in advance of the states caucuses late last week to remain in the South.

Special to the ChronicleRALEIGH, N.C. In the year since the tsunami that caused accidents at nuclear power plants in Fukushima, Japan, Progress Energy has worked with the U.S. nuclear industry, the Nuclear Energy Institute and global resources to understand the events and implement changes to make the companys plants even safer and better protected. The companys response includes in-depth inspections and analyses, physical changes, additional equipment to monitor and respond to potential emergencies, and plans for additional safety and security initiatives. Progress Energy Chief Nuclear Officer James Scarola has been named as a special liaison for the U.S. nuclear industrys Fukushima response. In that role, Scarola is helping lead the continuing effort to analyze lessons learned from the Fukushima events and response, and work with regulatory agencies, the industry and other stakeholders to implement enhancement plans at each of the nations 104 commercial nuclear plants. Immediately following the March 11, 2011, accident at Fukushima Daiichi, Progress Energy conducted thorough inspections at each of its four nuclear sites located in the Carolinas and Florida. Plant personnel reviewed each plants emergency-response capabilities, written procedures and engineering specifications to verify each sites ability to respond in the unlikely event of station blackout or record flood. As of this year, Progress Energy is working to establish industry best practices and improve the safety standards and margin. The U.S. approach to safety at nuclear power plants is based on three layers of safety: protection, mitigation and emergency response. A revised strategy represents a significant expansion of the second layer the ability to protect the plant and public in extreme external events that may exceed those for which the plant was designed. Meanwhile, the nuclear industry is in the process of reanalyzing natural disasters, including earthquakes and flooding, to assess the state of readiness in light of the events in Japan. U.S. nuclear companies are also adding emergency equipment, such as portable pumps and generators, to perform key safety functions if off-site electrical supplies and several backup power sources are lost to permanently installed safety systems due to natural and/or man-made causes. Among the additional pieces of equipment Progress Energy is adding, at each station, a high-capacity pump to maintain the ability to cool the reactor core in an unlikely accident, additional diesel generators for power restoration to critical equipment, and other associated support components (i.e., lights, fans, small generators, direct-current power supplies, pre-staged tool kits, fuel transfer equipment, hoses, cords, fittings, etc.). These systems and pieces of equipment are in addition to the numerous layers of safety measures and systems previously in place. Edna Chancey, 79DUNNELLON Edna M.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scotts picks to run universities, colleges, state agencies and other important boards are now in limbo. The Florida Senate failed to confirm more than 400 appointments Scott has made in the last year during the regular 60-day legislative session that ended last Friday. Some of those who were not confirmed include the heads of the states prison agency, as well as the agency that works with the disabled and the agency that oversees Floridas elections. The Senate also refused to confirm four members of the State Board of Education, the panel that hires the education commissioner and is responsible for setting policy for the states public schools. Others who were not confirmed include members of university and college boards, water management district boards, the Florida Citrus Commission and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Under state law, all these people must leave their posts by April 23 unless Scott reappoints them. If the Senate refuses to confirm the appointees a second time they must leave their post for at least one year before they can be reappointed. Lane Wright, a spokesman for Scott, said that the governor would start reviewing the appointments between now and the rapidly approaching deadline. We will reappoint or make new appointments within the required time period, Wright said. A spokeswoman for Senate President Mike Haridopolos said that the Senate did not act on many of the executive appointments because it was caught up in other matters, including a controversial bill that makes changes to the states mandatory auto insurance law. The session ran all the way up to midnight on Friday. The Senate simply ran out of time to confirm executive appointments on the last day of the session, said Lyndsey Cruley. We had a number of pressing issues to get to that day. The Senate, however, during the session did confirm eight Scott appointments, including Secretary of Transportation Ananth Prasad. All eight of the appointees were up for confirmation last year but the Senate did not vote on them at that time. That meant that Prasad was in danger of losing his job permanently if the Senate had not acted this time around. Business wins as colleges take a fall Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Floridas businesses scored victories in the Legislature in the newly concluded annual session, but some college students say they wonder if the treatment lawmakers gave that sector came at their expense. For businesses, legislators reduced a mammoth increase in unemployment compensation taxes set to take effect this year, resulting in $550 million in expected savings for businesses over two years. Lawmakers also approved $120 million in various tax breaks. They put a constitutional amendment on the ballot boosting the tax exemption for whats known as tangible personal property, which includes computers, tools, machinery and other equipment. But tuition may be going up for college and university students, particularly those attending the University of Florida and Florida State University. One bill would let those schools raise tuition more than the annual 15 percent limit, if Gov. Rick Scott signs it into law. Business representatives generally agree this was a good session for their interests, while one student organizer said she was disappointed but not surprised. We feel shafted every session, to be honest, said Kelsie Taggart, an organizer with the FSU Progress Coalition. Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, started even before the session, mentioning that the Legislature had limited bandwidth for issues other than redistricting and the required passage of a state budget. But clearly, there was room in the spectrum to take care of issues close to the states business lobby. Overall, this was a good session for the business community, said David Hart, executive vice president of the Florida Chamber of Commerce. We made some good steps forward. The added tangible personal property tax exemption, assuming it passes with 60 percent approval in November, will put money back in the operating accounts of small businesses, said Bill Herrle, executive director of the Florida chapter of the National Federation of Independent Businesses. The measure provides a second $25,000 exemption for those businesses with total taxable assets of less than $50,000. That affects 150,000 Florida businesses, Herrle said. Its dollars on the bottom line, he said, explaining that the break translates into $300 to $400 for the 2013 tax year. Is that enough to go out and create a job? No, Herrle said. But it is more money to invest back into a business. The change in unemployment compensation is more relevant to job growth, he added. Small business owners are just on the cusp of expansion in this economy, Herrle said. I think that was the one best single job vote of the session. Taggart, a political science and economics major from Broward County, said she and other college students are tired of policymakers helping others on the backs of students. We cant afford our education without taking out more loans, she said. College is supposed to be a step forward but with the more money owed, it can become a step backward. Taggart was among 200 students and others who rallied on the FSU campus Monday to protest against planned UF and FSU tuition hikes. Scott has said he is opposed to increasing tuition at state universities. Taggart said she just wanted to remind him of that statement. Hopefully, we can push him on this to see the wiser way, she said. But Hart said he chafes at suggestions that the help given to businesses somehow comes at the expense of middleand working-class Floridians. Being business-friendly means putting people back to work, making everyone more productive, according to Hart. Were all in this together, Hart said. New charges in toxic tush case FORT LAUDERDALE A Florida woman accused by authorities of illegally injecting toxic substances such as flattire sealant and glue into womens buttocks as an enhancement procedure is facing new charges. Broward Sheriffs Office deputies said 32-year-old Oneal Ron Morris faces unlicensed practice of medicine and related charges after three new victims were identified. Morris, who police say was born a man and identifies as a woman, was arrested in November on similar charges in Miami-Dade County. The victims told authorities that Morris wore a nurses uniform, gloves and an ID tag during the procedures. Authorities said Morris also injected victims with caulk and cement. All three victims suffered medical complications and infections. Morris is free on $8,500 bail after turning herself in Monday. Her attorney said his client maintains her innocence. Judge upholds store suspensions WASHINGTON A federal judge has upheld the Drug Enforcement Administrations decision to prevent two Florida CVS pharmacies from selling controlled substances because of alleged lax enforcement of restrictions on a powerful painkiller. Judge Reggie Walton denied the stores request for a preliminary injunction against DEA at a hearing Tuesday. Last month, the pharmacies won a temporary order blocking the suspension. The DEA issued suspension orders against the Orlando-area CVS pharmacies and their supplier, Cardinal Healths Lakeland-based center. The agency said the pharmacies were dispensing the painkiller oxycodone far in excess of legitimate needs. Walton already allowed DEA to go forward with suspending Cardinal. But a federal appeals court put that suspension on hold while it considers the case. CVS said it would appeal Waltons ruling. Man charged in robbery attemptFORT LAUDERDALE A Florida man is jailed after attempting to steal money from a fast-food restaurant in whats being dubbed a divethrough robbery attempt. Fort Lauderdale police said 31-year-old Edwin Walker is facing strong-arm robbery charges. Court records did not list an attorney Tuesday for Walker. Police said surveillance video at a local Burger King showed Walker waiting early Monday for a customer to pull up to the drive-through window. When the window was opened, Walker allegedly jumped on the hood of a car and dove through the window to steal cash from the register. An employee was able to grab Walker by the shirt and others held him down until police arrived. The charge is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. Taxi drivers complain of bias ORLANDO Some Muslim taxi drivers in Orlando are filing a complaint with the federal agency that monitors employment discrimination, alleging they were not permitted to pray during their breaks and prohibited from speaking any language other than English to each other. Eight taxi drivers filed the complaint alleging anti-Muslim discrimination Tuesday against Star Taxi. In the complaint, a driver claims he was warned not to pray during his breaks, even if he was out of public view, and then he was fired for doing so. The complaint alleges that the drivers were not allowed to speak Arabic to each other. Star Taxis president, Robert Gaye, said in a statement that company has a culture of tolerance, and managers only asked that drivers pray outside of high-traffic areas.S TATEC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EDNESDAY, M ARCH 14, 2012 A7 000AO6C 000AQOH Featuring the music of Dick Terry For more information call 422-6700 or 601-3506 Bring Chairs T h e C i t y o f C r y s t a l R i v e r p r e s e n t s C LASSIC R OCK IN THE P ARK Saturday, March 17 4 6 p.m. Gazebo behind City Hall 000ASS6 F R E E F R E E FREE C o n c e r t C o n c e r t Concert!

Associated PressWASHINGTON All but four of 19 major U.S. banks got a green light Tuesday from the Federal Reserve to boost their dividends and take other steps that will make their stocks more attractive to investors. The Fed declared them strong enough to survive a downturn worse than the Great Recession. The Feds findings signaled its confidence that the financial system, which nearly collapsed 3 1/2 years ago, is healthy again. J.P Morgan, Wells Fargo and other large bank holding companies that passed the Feds so-called stress tests raised their dividends and announced plans to buy more of their stock. The news ignited a late-day rally on Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average shot up 218 points to its highest close since the end of 2007. Its clearly good news the U.S. banking system can now withstand a quite severe recession without falling over, said Douglas Elliott, a fellow at the Brookings Institution, a non-partisan policy think tank. One notable exception was Citigroup, the nations third-largest bank. It was among the companies the Fed said lacked enough capital to withstand another severe economic and financial crisis. Its stock price fell 4 percent in after-hours trading. The Fed announced the results after markets had closed. The other three financial institutions that did not pass the Feds hypothetical stress tests were Ally Financial, SunTrust and MetLife. The Fed released the results two days earlier than planned after JPMorgan sent out a press release late Tuesday saying it had passed the test. The Fed reviewed the balance sheets of 19 bank holding companies to determine whether they could withstand a severe crisis: unemployment at 13 percent, stock prices falling 60 percent over two years and home prices plunging 21 percent from todays levels. The overall financial system is much stronger than it was in 2009. In the first quarter of that year, the 19 companies stress-tested by the Fed held $420 billion in cash and assets easily convertible to cash. That figure climbed to $759 billion by the end of 2011. The banks that passed the stress tests celebrated with announcements of increased dividends and plans to buy back their own shares: JPMorgan Chase will increase its dividend to 30 cents per share from 25 cents and plans to buy back $15 billion of its stock by the first quarter of 2013. The companys outstanding stock is currently worth $136.7 billion. U.S. Bancorp will boost its annual dividend to 78 cents per share from 50 cents and buy back up to 100 million shares of its stock. Wells Fargo said it will increase its dividend to 22 cents per share from 12 cents. The Fed can bar the banks that failed the test from paying dividends or buying back their own stock. It can also force them to raise money by selling additional stock or issuing debt.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 218 points and closed at its highest level since the last day of 2007. The Nasdaq composite closed above 3,000 for the first time since December 2000, when dot-com stocks were collapsing. There was already plenty of good news driving the market higher Tuesday: Retail sales in February increased the most since September, and the Federal Reserve said it expected the unemployment rate to keep falling. Then the market soared in the final hour after JPMorgan Chase, the countrys largest bank by assets, announced that it plans to buy back as much as $15 billion of its stock and raise its quarterly dividend by a nickel to 30 cents per share. JPMorgan said it was acting with the blessing of the Federal Reserve, which was preparing to announce the results of a review to make sure banks have enough cash to withstand a financial crisis worse than what happened in 2008. Thats what really made the day, said Jeffrey Kleintop, chief market strategist at LPL Financial. JPMorgan Chase stock soared 7 percent, and other banks followed. Citigroup and Goldman Sachs gained 6 percent. Banks were easily the best-performing stocks in the market, gaining almost 4 percent as a group. The Fed had planned to release the results of its review, known as a stress test, for 19 financial institutions Thursday after the market closed. After JPMorgan Chase made its announcement, the Fed pulled a surprise. The central bank released its stress test results a halfhour after the markets closed Tuesday two days ahead of schedule. JPMorgan Chase and 14 other financial institutions passed. Four, including Citigroup, failed. Citigroup stock was down 4 percent in after-hours trading following the Fed announcement. The Dow finished at 13,177.68, its highest close since Dec. 31, 2007. Tuesdays close put the Dow within 1,000 points of its record, 14,164.53, set in October 2007. All 30 stocks in the Dow closed higher, the first time that has happened this year. The Nasdaq composite index rose 56.22 points, or 1.9 percent, to 3,039.88. On Dec. 11, 2000, the last time the Nasdaq closed above 3,000, it was in the middle of a horrifying slide from a peak above 5,000 in March 2000 to just above 1,100 in October 2002.

Page A10 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 Not entrapment This letter is a reply to C. Carlis Harmans column about traffic traps. A speed trap is a manipulation of the state law in order to extract revenue from the general public to enhance the local budget. When speed limit changes quickly in a very short distance, with little or no notification, there is little doubt that the sole purpose is to manipulate people into breaking the law so that they can extract a fine or fee to enhance the local budget. Seat belt checks, on the other hand, are no different than DUI or driver license checks in that they do not change and are consistent throughout the state. The law states that if you are operating a motor vehicle in Florida, you must have a valid drivers license and you must wear your seat belt. The law is the same in every county and from one block to the next in every city. Of course, we do not want a bad reputation as an area of Florida that is to be avoided. Hopefully, we will have a reputation of being an area where the laws of the land are implemented fairly, consistently and that you must obey those laws. There are provisions in our laws that allow redress for laws that we consider harmful, oppressive or just plain wrong. That procedure does not include ignoring the law, but instead changing it. We, the people, must speak out and contact our state senators and representatives if we believe that a travesty of justice is infringing on our rights or the rights of others. Also, one of those rights should be carrying out the duties of a duly appointed officer by enforcing the law. In fact, Im not real sure about this; I think that it is against the law to interfere with an office of the law when he is carrying out the duties of his office. W. J. (Jack) Fowler Jr. Homosassa Get screened The Debby Hudson Colon Cancer Foundation would like to thank the Chronicle for the great story Colonoscopy Works. March is colon cancer awareness month. It is important that those 50 years or older get screened. If you have a family history of colon cancer, you should talk to your doctor. You may need to be screened earlier. Black Americans should be screened at age 45. Colon cancer is 90 percent curable when detected early one of the highest success rates for any cancer. Unfortunately, too many people avoid getting screened until a problem develops. By then the cancer may be advanced. To raise awareness and funds for research, the fifth annual Scope It Out 5k run/1 mile walk will be Saturday, March 24, at 8 a.m. at CREST School in the Lecanto Schools complex. There will also be a kids Fun Run this year. Citrus Memorial Hospital will be there, Quest 4 Health will have licensed massage therapists there to get you ready, Jazzercise will be warming up the crowd, and everyone will have a great time! You can register at www.debbys5k.org. We hope to see you there. Dont forget get screened if you are 50 or older.

Senate Resolution 1296, which was published Thursday in the Journal of the Senate, commends the thousands of individuals who work during early voting and on Election Day for their outstanding service and dedication to the democratic process in their communities. A diverse group of Election Day officials are charged with administering the activities at the polling place and early voting locations in local, state and federal elections. Poll Workers commit to attend in-depth training sessions, in which they learn policies and procedures and operations of voting equipment, all to ensure fair and accurate elections for their fellow citizens. They then put that training into practice on Election Day for upward of 14 hours or more in polling locations. Sen. Mike Fasano, who represents portions of Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties, introduced Senate Resolution 1296 in December and guided it through the Senate chamber. We thank our Citrus County Election Workers for their dedication to the election process. They truly are the gatekeepers of democracy. Susan Gill Citrus County supervisor of elections I love Floridas scandals. The state has so many and theyre wonderfully brazen or sleazy or silly. State Rep. Richard Steinbergs Sexxxy mama texts are an example. All of todays technology makes it far too easy to make a fool of yourself. Here in the Middle East, corruption, cronyism and bad behavior are so rampant that wrongdoing must clear a very high bar to even warrant a mention. And few newspapers are willing or able to ferret out scandal and report it. But the Libyan war wounded boondoggle is so expensive and mind-boggling it cant be hidden. Here are the highlights. In September, rebel troops captured Tripoli and took down Moammar Gadhafis regime. Flush with victory and the prospect of getting their hands on Muammars money, the new government the National Transitional Council announced a $400 million program to send wounded fighters overseas to hospitals that could treat injuries too complex for Libyas dismal medical system. Since then the program has run amok. It has rung up more than $800 million in bills by sending tens of thousands of Libyans to Europe, Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, the USA and other countries. Most of the initial patients were legitimate war victims. But it didnt take long before Libyans were going abroad most expenses paid for tummy tucks, lip enhancements, in-vitro fertilization and family vacations. The new government was in no position to manage such a complex undertaking and soon ad hoc administrators were doling out the money. They began sending family and friends on vacations with money the government may or may not really have. Meanwhile, actual wounded fighters cant get in the program because they dont have sufficient tribal connections. Jordan is one of the favorite destinations for Libyans needing tummy tucks. At first, the hospitals and doctors there were eager to treat them. They wanted to get their hands into Muammars cookie jar. But now they are worried. Libya has not been paying its bills. The Jordanians say theyve been paid only about 20 per cent of what theyre due. Meanwhile, the Libyans say the Jordanian hospitals and doctors have been acting like they won the Arab Spring lottery. They say the Jordanians are overcharging for treatment, conducting useless tests and, if the patient asks, performing a lip enhancement on the assumption that the Libyan government is so disorganized that it will pay for anything. It seems everyone views Libya as a stuffed bank vault blown wide open. After all, theres all that oil money and Gadhafis frozen assets. Theyre estimated at between $160 billion to $200 billion. For now, it appears the people who will benefit most are the lawyers and auditors trying to sort out the mess. And there are a few happy people who have returned to Libya tucked and augmented, who may be getting texts from admirers calling them sexxxy mama.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member Synthetic drugs cant be ignored D espite the best efforts of legislators and law enforcement, drugs are still reaching the hands of our kids. A recent news story told of a local mothers struggle with her 18-year-old daughters drug abuse; she went from a vibrant high school senior looking forward to graduation to a dropout on food stamps and proud of it. The worst part is the drug she has been chronically abusing is legal and easy to get. The drug is commonly sold as K2, or Spice, and can be purchased at some local convenience stores and shops around the county. It is the same drug that sent actress Demi Moore to the hospital with severe convulsions last month after she reportedly smoked it. According to Sgt. Justin Ferrara with the Citrus County Sheriffs Tactical Impact Unit, K2 is referred to as legal marijuana. It is sold in the form of incense, making it appealing to primarily younger people, enabling them to avoid street dealers in the quest for a high. The drug has been blamed for numerous car accidents and a drowning. Effects include confusion, paranoia and hallucinations. The sheriffs detectives dealing with the problem have said it is hard to stay a step ahead of the profiteers marketing the drug. When legislation was passed putting some bite into law enforcements attempts to eradicate it, the drug morphed into a similar product with slightly deviated chemical compounds. A similar scenario garnered attention last year when state lawmakers moved to ban the sale of bath salts a deceiving name for a variety of synthetic drugs. While that temporarily curtailed the problems, makers tweaked the ingredients to circumvent the law. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has since been working with lawmakers to make it a third-degree felony to sell, manufacture or deliver bath salts and synthetic cannabis. The Senate bill is 1502 and the House bill is 1175. Youths, in particular, should be educated about the dangers of synthetic drugs as much so as with street drugs like cocaine and heroin and pharmaceuticals like OxyContin. Dont be fooled by the legal status of synthetic drugs; they are extremely dangerous. Parents should talk to their children openly and honestly about synthetic marijuana and all drugs deemed recreational. Youths arent nave ultimately theyll make good or bad decisions. At present, its not a matter of whether they can obtain synthetics, but whether theyll use them. Failure to arm them with the knowledge of the consequences leaves the door wide open. And for the storeowners selling the stuff: Shame on you! Dont put this drug on your shelves knowing it is harmful. It is easy to say, It wont happen to me. Stories like the recent one of the mother trying desperately to get her daughter off the drug are testimony to the severity of the problem.

Business as usual Its been business as usual since The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, better known as the Simpson-Bowles commission, voted on Dec. 2, 2010, 11-7 in favor of a report calling for $4 trillion in deficit reductions. The report needed a supermajority of 14 votes to pass, so it was never an official document. The frightening thing is the $4 trillion is not a maximum figure. Its the minimum needed to reduce the deficit in order to stabilize the debt. Without that reduction, the debt will continue to explode until by 2020, we will be paying $1 trillion a year interest on it. The commission was working the idea of a 3:1 ratio of spending cuts to tax increases, but the democrats would not give an inch on their entitlement programs since they use them to buy votes and win elections. The Republicans realize that you cant fix it with just tax increases because you would have to raise the highest marginal rate to 70 percent, the corporate rate to 80 percent, and the capital gains and dividend rate to 50 percent. Economic growth is impossible at those rates. All you will hear is Ross Perots famous sucking sound of American companies and jobs fleeing our shores. Since 2000, the number of people emigrating from America has increased eightfold. Its not just our $16.8 trillion national debt. We are on the hook for $145 trillion of future obligations for future Social Security payments, government and military retirements, and Medicare/Medicaid payments. Of course thats beyond our ability to fund so we will eventually have to default on our debt like Greece and several other socialist countries of Europe are getting ready to do. I know of another solution and so do Obama, Geithner, and Bernanke. Devalue the dollar by hyperinflation and pay it off with worthless dollars. The end result will be the same as a default, homelessness, starvation, and riots, just more controllable. We cannot afford business as usual any longer. We need real change. Harley Lawrence Homosassa Churches rightsAt the national prayer breakfast, President Obama told a crowd, We cannot leave our values at the door. How ironic, because this administration is ordering the church to do exactly that. The mandate requires the Catholic Church to provide contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs in their health care plans. Sixty evangelical leaders sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services saying they believe the federal government is obligated by the First Amendment to accommodate the religious convictions of all faith-based organizations, Catholic and non-Catholic. Obama has created an environment over the past three years where hostility toward orthodox Christianity is not only tolerated but encouraged. Claude Strass Homosassa No more war I would like to know why our country cant find gas or oil when it is in almost every state. Instead they are taking us down. We have enough problems with the economy without having to worry about gas and oil. Washington has their hand in everything. So why not help the people in this country? This oil and gas problem has gotten out of control like our government. Another war? No way! Enough is enough! If these jerks want to kill each other let them. We should not be the police of the world. Charity begins right here at home. Lets get this country back to where it should be and not by selling America down the tubes! When we can get our act together, then we can help others. It seems Rome was once powerful and you know what happened to them. We were a powerful country at one time. Not anymore. We are loosing ground, going broke and Washington is asleep at the wheel. Instead of taking prayer out of everything, we should be praying to our creator to heal our nation. Look around and see what is happening. We do not need God? Think again! God bless America! Anna DeRose Lecanto Spending limit We have a bunch of legislators who profess to be conservative, yet they have voted for spending bills which now need to be paid for. Look closely at your legislators voting record. Most are in favor of tax cuts and putting a limit on the debt ceiling. The debt ceiling should never have a limit as this is like saying we do not want to pay our lenders for the money that they have already lent us. This is like buying a car on time and then two years into the payments deciding that you are not going to continue paying. That is why our credit rating got downgraded. In the next election, vote for candidates (who) will vote no on expenditures. Keep in mind war and foreign aid are two big expenditures and most of the candidates seem to be in favor of both.

Climbing Associated Press Noah Rushmeyer, top, and Sam Pikula take advantage of the warm weather Tuesday to climb a tree at Lum Park in Brainerd, Minn. Encyclopaedia Britannica to end print editions CHICAGO Encyclopaedia Britannica Inc. says it will stop publishing print editions of its flagship encyclopedia. The Chicago-based company announced Tuesday that the encyclopedia wont be available in book form for the first time in 244 years. The company will continue to publish digital versions. Encyclopaedia Britannica President Jorge Cauz said the company has foreseen the end of the print set for some time. The company said ending the print edition of the 32-volume encyclopedia is the latest step in a move toward digital publishing and expanding its range of educational products. The Encyclopaedia Britannica was first published in Scotland in 1768. Protest Associated Press A South Korean man holds a sign during a rally Tuesday opposing the free trade agreement, or FTA, with the United States in Seoul, South Korea. Former news executive arrested in hacking probeLONDON Former News International executive Rebekah Brooks and her racehorse trainer husband Charlie were arrested in dawn raids that also netted four other suspects in the spreading phone hacking scandal. Police said the six people were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. The charge is an indication that investigators may be focusing on a possible coverup of the scope of phone hacking rather than the illegal hacking itself. It was the most arrests in a single day since Operation Weeting as the police investigation into phone hacking is known began arresting reporters, senior news executives, police officers and others suspected of criminal acts. The scandal began in 2005 with the revelation that tabloid reporters had broken into the voicemail systems of aides to the royal family in search of inside information. The issue mushroomed again last summer with the revelation that hacking had been widespread at Rupert Murdochs News of the World tabloid, which has since been shut. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressWASHINGTON In the middle of Sunshine Week, when news organizations and advocacy groups promote government transparency, the Obama administration urged Congress on Tuesday to keep secret a whole new category of information even under the Freedom of Information Act. A few miles away, the White House organized a conference call with two senior administration officials to preview an announcement by President Barack Obama about an important China trade issue but told reporters that no one could be quoted by name. The officials were U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and the deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs, Michael Froman. Obama has promised that his administration will be the most transparent in American history. But events on Tuesday, while unrelated, illustrate that old habits die hard. On Capitol Hill, the director of the Justice Departments office of information policy, Melanie Ann Pustay, told senators they need to protect against public disclosures of material about cybersecurity, critical U.S. computer networks, industrial plants, pipelines and more. Businesses have sought such a new exemption under the law for at least 10 years. Pustay told the Senate Judiciary Committee that a Supreme Court ruling in March 2011 narrowed an exemption under the records law and left federal agencies unable to protect secrets about cybersecurity and critical infrastructures, even though the Justice Department since then has recommended at least three other ways under current law to justify withholding such information. The case involved a retired electrician, Glen Milner, who sought in 2003 to learn more about the types and amounts of explosives stored at the Navys nearby Indian Island facility. Milner said he wanted to know whether his family and neighbors were at risk of being blown up. Pustay said the Supreme Court decision put at risk a wide range of sensitive material whose disclosure could cause harm, and urged the Senate to approve a proposal in cybersecurity legislation that would keep it off-limits under the Freedom of Information Act. She said it was unlikely the governments other methods under existing laws would adequately protect such secrets. Under the records law, citizens and foreigners can compel the government to turn over copies of federal records for zero or little cost. Anyone who seeks information through the law is generally supposed to get it unless disclosure would hurt national security, violate personal privacy or expose business secrets or confidential decision-making in certain areas. Feds want more secrecy Associated PressSURABAYA, Indonesia The tigers are emaciated and the 180 pelicans packed so tightly they cannot unfurl their wings without hitting a neighbor. Last week, a giraffe died with a beachball-sized wad of plastic food wrappers in its belly. That death has focused new attention on the scandalous conditions at Indonesias largest zoo. Set up nearly a century ago in one the most biologically diverse corners of the planet, it once boasted the most impressive collection in Southeast Asia. But today the Surabaya Zoo is a nightmare, plagued by uncontrolled breeding, a lack of funding for general animal welfare and even persistent suspicions that members of its own staff are involved in illegal wildlife trafficking. The rarest species, including Komodo dragons and critically endangered orangutans, sit in dank, unsanitary cages, filling up on peanuts tossed over the fence by giggling visitors. This is extremely tragic, but of course by no means surprising in Indonesias zoos, given the appalling way they are managed on the whole, said Ian Singleton, a former zookeeper who now runs an orangutan conservation program on Sumatra island. The zoo came under heavy fire two years ago following reports that 25 of its 4,000 animals were dying every month, almost all of them prematurely. They included an African lion, a Sumatran tiger and several crocodiles. The government appointed an experienced zookeeper, Tony Sumampouw, to clean up the operation and he struggled, with some success, to bring the mortality rate down to about 15 per month. But following last weeks death of the 30-year-old giraffe Kliwon who had for years been eating litter and trash thrown into its pen and was found with a 40-pound ball of plastic in its stomach Sumampouw said hes all but given up. Nothing short of a total renovation is needed, he said. We need to either think about privatizing or transferring out some of the animals. With entrance fees of less than $2, critics say theres not enough money to care for the animals, much less invest in improving the zoos facilities. One of the biggest problems is overcrowding. Whereas most zoos limit the number of animals born in captivity taking into consideration how many can reasonably be cared for or exchanged with other zoos the notion of family planning has not yet taken off here. Contraceptives are expensive and there are not adequate facilities to separate males and females. As result, species at the Surabaya zoo are bred to excess. The 180 pelicans are kept in a pen the size of a volleyball court. Nearby, 16 tigers 12 Sumatran and four Bengalese are kept in a prison-like row of concrete cages. One white tiger, whose parents were donated by the Indian government nearly 20 years ago, is now covered by skin lesions. Let out so rarely, she suffers from back complications that make it difficult to just stand up, let alone walk, zoo curator Sri Pentawati said. There are too many tigers, she lamented. We have a hard time rotating them out to get all the exercise they need. Rahmat Shah a well-known big-game hunter with a museum in the city of Medan that is filled with rhinos, big cats and other animals hes shot around the world currently heads Indonesias National Zoo Association. He says none of the zoos run by the government are in good condition, but that Surabaya is especially troubled, due to a bitter internal rift. Two men who each claimed to be the zoos chief were fired several years ago, but their followers among the staff have continued the feud. Police believe the poisoning death of a Javan warthog in January, found with traces of cyanide in its stomach, was linked to that conflict. One side is always trying to discredit the other, said Ludvie Achmad, head of a local conservation agency. Sumampouw acknowledged he has had little success in controlling the undisciplined staff. He said he believes some animals, including three young Komodos that disappeared last year, were stolen by caretakers and sold into the exotic pet trade. Zookeepers also have been accused of taking meat meant for the tigers and selling it in the local market.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Millions of college students could be in for a shock this summer when the interest rate on a popular federally subsidized student loan doubles unless Congress acts. College students on Tuesday delivered more than 130,000 letters to congressional leaders, asking them to stop rates from increasing from 3.4 to 6.8 percent. The rate hike affects new subsidized Stafford loans, which are issued to low and middle income undergraduates. I will be put back into buying a house and saving up for my expenses later on in life, and life as we know, is very unexpected. Adding that variable definitely limits my ability to be successful, said Tyler Dowden, 18, a freshman at Northern Arizona University who spoke at a press conference outside the Capitol before the letters were delivered in boxes with Congress: Dont Double Student-Debt Rates printed on the outside. Dowden said he anticipates graduating with $25,000 in debt, but if the rate increases, he expects to add about $3,500 to that tally. Hes studying to be a mental health therapist. President Barack Obama frequently tells crowds its important for Congress to stop the hike because one of the most daunting challenges after high school graduation is affording college. His administration has said keeping the rate low would help 7.4 million borrowers save on average more than a thousand dollars over the life of the loan. But doing so is estimated to cost billions annually at a time when Congress is gridlocked over budgetary and other issues. With many lawmakers acting on a campaign promise, the Democrat-controlled Congress in 2007 passed legislation to progressively lower the rate to 3.4 percent this school year. With tuition costs at a high, students are taking on unprecedented levels of student debt. College students leave owing an average $25,000 in loans, and student loan debt now surpasses credit card debt. Some graduates simply cant keep up with it. A report released Tuesday by the federal judiciary about the courts caseload in the government-spending year that ended Sept. 30 showed that filings with the government as a plaintiff increased 25 percent as cases concerning defaulted student loans surged 58 percent, or by 1,588 cases. Students face loan interest rate hike Set to double to 6.8 percent

C.J. RISAK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER One thing is certain: Briget Brothers and Barbara Breesmens performances Tuesday were good enough to earn for each woman to share the top of the leaderboard in the 43rd annual Lollypop Tournament. Defending champion Breesmen and Brothers carded 79s to tie for the lead after the first round of the tournament at Seven Rivers Golf and Country Club. Next best in the championship flight were B.J. McKee with an 82, Karen Wood with an 83, Linda Travis with an 84 and Dee Reynolds with an 87. Although their scores topped the leaderboard, neither frontrunner was happy. Not a whole lot went right, said Brothers, a teacher at the Renaissance Center in Lecanto and former volleyball coach at Crystal River High School. Ive played here three times in the last month and Ive shot the same score each time. I hope to break that string, and I hope to break it with a lower score. Brothers, who usually plays on Plantation Inn Golf Course, has participated in the Lollypop three times previously, recording one win. My teaching limits my playing, but the tournament was during spring break this year, she said. For Breesmen, winning this tournament would hardly be anything new. She played her first Lollypop in 1994, and since then has missed just three tournaments. In that span, the Dunes regular from Spring Hill has won six titles. Neither one of us played well, said Breesmen, who partnered with Brothers during their rounds. Tomorrow, Ive got to do better. I was getting off the tee fine but my irons were bad. My putting was OK, not good. I only threeputted one green, but I left three on the edge (of the cup). A 76 would have been better, but it still wouldnt have been good enough. Best first-round low gross scores in first flight went to Jorie Berttie and Kathy Butler, each with an 86 low gross and 71 low net. Top low net score was a 68 by Marian Kitider, who shot an 88. In the second flight, Phyllis Pike shot an 85 for top first-round honors, followed by Karen Stacy with an 87 and Betty Bleakley, who shot an 88. Pike had a 65 low Pirates rally to beat Marlins S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER The Pirates overcame a 2-0 deficit for their second consecutive game to defeat J.R. Arnold of Panama City, 9-3, on Tuesday at the new Mike Hampton Field. With the game knotted at 3 after three innings, Crystal River (10-3) got four hits including a two-run blast over the left-field fence by starting pitcher Tyler Humphreys en route to a four-run fourth inning. The club scored two more in the sixth, with Humphreys chipping in another run and hit. Humphreys struck out five Arnold batters in three innings before senior Donnie Dewees entered in the fourth, followed by senior Weston Pope in the sixth. Pope and Dewees, the game-winner, combined to allow no hits and no walks in four shutout innings. The first inning belonged to the Marlins (5-5), though, with leadoff hitter Connor Sleeth, a senior center fielder, slugging a solo home run in the games first at bat. Later, senior left fielder Nick Frost opened the third inning with a triple to right field before scoring on a sacrifice fly. The runs gave Arnold, who pounded out five hits in the first three innings, a 3-1 lead. Marlins junior Sean Reichert pitched 4 2/3 innings and was relieved by junior Justin Bynum, who struck out two in more than two innings of work. That seemed like a pretty good baseball team with some good swings, Pirates coach Bobby Stack said afterward. Today, we scratched out some runs early and then our bats kind of came alive, giving everybody a more comfortable feeling, as opposed to being in a 2-2 ballgame in the seventh inning like Saturday, he added. Our plate approaches were a little better against an offspeed-type pitcher. I think we made our adjustments after seeing a guy hold us down pretty well the other day. After leaving the mound, Humphreys filled in for Dewees in center and Pope at shortstop. Humphreys hit his third homer in three games. He discussed his recovery from early struggles on the mound as well as his teams acclimation to the 1 p.m. start. I was just a little uncomfortable in the first inning, and I kind of settled in, he said. It was hard at first adjusting to the day game, but we were able to see the ball pretty well.

It was the eighth 20-20 game of the season for Howard and the 40th of his career. The Magic overcame a 14-point, first-half deficit to win their third straight and fifth in six games. Dwyane Wade scored 28 points and Chris Bosh 23 for the Heat, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. LeBron James added 19 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. The Heat visit Chicago on Wednesday in a matchup of the Easts top teams. Orlando goes to San Antonio for its final game before the trade deadline. The Magic are surrounded by uncertainty with Thursdays 3 p.m. deadline looming. Howard asked for a trade in the preseason and team officials were still mulling whether to honor it or risk him exercising an opt-out clause in his contract this summer and leaving anyway. Even Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy acknowledged before the game it had to be on his players minds. He shrugged off an ESPN.com report from earlier in the day that Howard had been told by team officials he could decide the fate of Van Gundy and general manager Otis Smith if he signed a contract extension. If anybody thinks I care about that, I really dont give a damn about being fired, Van Gundy said. That doesnt concern me in the least. ... If they want to fire me to please somebody, fire me. The speculation didnt wind up affecting their intensity in what could have been Howards final home game in a Magic jersey. Howard scored the first basket of the extra frame and Orlando took a 100-96 lead on Nelsons running layup. Following an offensive foul on Mario Chalmers, Nelson scored again on a twisting layup in the lane to increase it to six with under a minute left. Wade trimmed it back to four and Howard missed a pair of free throws on the Magics next possession to give the Heat hope with 26 seconds to play.

Not for McCoy C.J. RISAK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER For many golfers, sinking a holein-one during their playing career is considered a lofty, pie-in-the-sky dream that may never come true. Yet, Crystal River resident Walt McCoy has managed it. In fact, hes managed it three times. That alone is quite a feat. But theres more. McCoy accomplished it in a sevenmonth span, stretching from Nov. 17, 2008. to June 11, 2009. Pretty good for a guy who was 64 when he got his hole-in-one and 65 for his next two. And yet, what McCoy did is far more dramatic, because on June 11, 2009, McCoy got his second and third aces while playing a nine-hole round on the Meadows course at Citrus Hills Golf Club in Crystal River. Its got to be mostly luck, hitting a four-inch-wide hole like that, McCoy said. Understand, there are a lot of pro golfers who have never had a hole-in-one. To get two holes-in-one, not in 18 holes but nine. I didnt realize how unique it was until I tried looking it up on my computer. The odds of an amateur golfer getting a hole-in-one are one in 12,500. Thats why events such as this weekends St. Pats Tournament at Inverness Golf and Country Club have sponsors for a hole-in-one contest on a specific hole. Nick Nicholas Ford will give away a car to anyone who pulls it off on the eighth hole. For the record, Kenny Godwin did it at the tourney last year. Imagine the odds for getting two in a single round. Astronomical might fit. Numbers vary from 9,222,500 to one, to 67 million to one, to 100 million to one. All share a similar feature winning the lottery might be easier. Thats what everybody told me when I did it, that everything was going my way and I should go out and buy a lottery ticket, he said. And remember: Those aforementioned odds are for 18-hole rounds. McCoy did it on what started as a ninehole round. And to think, he wasnt even planning to play that particular day. My brother Jerry was coming up from Orlando and wanted to play, McCoy said. I told him, Jerry, Im golfed out. I really dont want to play. I was playing about six times a week then and I was just tired. But he said hed been working a lot and he needed a break. So I said I would. McCoys first ace of the day came at the 150-yard third hole. The wind was in our face, McCoy said, which convinced him to use a six iron instead of a seven. When it went in, my brother got real excited, McCoy said. We live right on the fourth hole and my wife Nancy was sunning herself by the pool. Jerry runs up to tell her, but she doesnt believe him. Before we could convince her, the group playing behind us was coming up the fairway, so we just had to go. On the 120-yard ninth hole, events took an even stranger turn. (I) Thought I hit it pretty well, McCoy said. But you cant see the green from the tee, so we werent sure where the ball was. When we got up there, there wasnt a ball on the green. I thought it rolled off the back. So, I went to look for it, but I couldnt find it. When I came back up to the green, my brother was standing by the hole with a big grin on his face. To make his record official, McCoy ended up playing 18 holes. After his opening 32, he shot a 44 on the back nine for an 18-hole total of 76 on the 5,885-yard, par-70 Meadows course. His best 18-hole score is 74. The native of Ypsilanti, Mich., began playing in the late 1970s. Since reaching his peak of playing six times a week, he has cut back to four times a week. My game has slipped, McCoy said. Now I need a lot more club than I did before. He had plenty of club in June 2009, and what he did was more than most golfers could ever dream of doing. DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Walt McCoy proved the luck of the Irish exists after hitting two holes-in-one while playing nine holes of golf in Citrus Hills. McCoy said he didnt buy a lottery ticket that day because he figured he had already used up his luck. The odds of hitting two holes in one in nine holes are 65,000,000 to 1, McCoy said. This weekends St. Pats Tournament at Inverness Golf and Country Club is having a hole-inone contest. Golfer of the Month: WALT MCCOY

Paul Goydos was driving to the doctors office Tuesday morning to have surgery on his left wrist. It has been bothering him most of his 25 years on the PGA Tour, but the pain usually goes away. This time, it didnt. He has a bone spur that needs to be removed, and figures hell be out of action for some three months. Would it hurt his feelings if this news was buried behind an update on Woods left Achilles tendon? No, Goydos said, stifling a laugh. Its called the Achilles heel for a reason. Lucas Glover had to wait three months to make his PGA Tour debut. The former U.S. Open champion slipped off a paddle board along the shores of Hawaii the weekend before the season opener at Kapalua and injured knee ligaments. Glover didnt think it was so bad at first. He thought about playing Honolulu, then the California desert, then San Diego, then Pebble Beach. All he got was a weekly dose of disappointment each Friday afternoon when he withdrew from the next tournament, until he finally gave up on the West Coast Swing. Glover finally gets to play the Transitions Championship at Innisbrook, having recovered from the sprained medial collateral ligament and a plica tendon, along with some atrophy in his quadriceps. But its all about the Achilles these days. I dont feel slighted at all, Glover said. What is it, 14 to 1? Glover grinned, waiting for the numbers to make sense. That would be 14 majors for Woods, one for him. David Toms also withdrew from the Cadillac Championship on Sunday with a back injury. No one seemed to notice. Theres a chance some people didnt even know he was at Doral in the first place. Instead, there was television footage of Woods in his red shirt climbing into a golf cart and being driven to the parking lot. NBC Sports was able to use the camera from the blimp for an overhead shot of Woods driving away from Doral in his black Mercedes, which didnt thrill the folks at Cadillac who paid upward of $10 million to sponsor the tournament. The good news for Woods is that hes still news. As Jack Nicklaus once told him in South Africa, Just make sure youre part of the conversation. Never mind that Nicklaus was talking about rivalries, not injuries. It will stay that way, especially while the golf world holds its breath to hear whether the Achilles tendon injury that forced Woods to withdraw after 11 holes Sunday really was a mild sprain, as he said Monday night on Twitter. Woods hopes to be hitting balls by the end of the week, and maybe even compete next week though he didnt make clear in 140 characters if he was talking about the silly made-fortelevision event called the Tavistock Cup or the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, which would be his last event before the Masters. No one moves the needle like Woods. That much is true, even as Rory McIlroy settles in as the new world No. 1 and doesnt shy away from it. The day after the 22-yearold from Northern Ireland held off Woods to win the Honda Classic and go to the top of the ranking, McIlroy was at Madison Square Garden before thousands of fans with a tennis racket in hand and Maria Sharapova on the other side of the net. It was a fun moment, something rarely make that, never seen from Woods. Associated Press Tiger Woods lines up his putt on the ninth green Sunday during the final round of the Cadillac Championship golf tournament in Doral. Woods is one of several golfers dealing with an injury.

Jackson won the 2011 wrestling title in the 171pound class. This year, he moved up to 182-pound class and captured that state title. Jacksons coach attributes his success to his work ethic. Taylor is a hardworking individual, and he eats, sleeps and breathes wrestling, Citrus coach Chris Kelly said. Hes a natural athlete, and most importantly, hes a great student and kid. Jackson had an outstanding 49-3 record in the 2011-12 season. He swept the districts in Brooksville. Then, in the toughest regional (2A-2) referred to as the Region of Doom he had a perfect 40 record. He defeated Springsteads Ernesto Padilla in a 10-2 decision to win the regional championship in St. Cloud, lifting the Hurricanes to a fourth-place finish out of 27 teams. At the state tournament at Lakelands Jenkins Center, Jackson handily defeated his first two opponents. Then the Citrus senior defeated Homesteads Keith Simmons, 11-7, to advance to final. Jackson secured the state title by defeating Fort Walton Beach senior Chris Lupo in a 18-1 technical fall score. For Jackson, it was a tougher climb to the top last year than this season. I had to beat a lot of seniors last year, Jackson said. This year, I just wanted to show up and dominate. Pirates junior second baseman Michael Kidd and Dewees (two RBIs) had two hits, a walk and three runs each, while sophomore third baseman Austin Wiles added two hits and a RBI for Crystal River. Pope found holes twice in the infield for groundball hits, and he hit a double and a sacrifice fly to right for a three-hit, threeRBI performance. After the game, he described his second-inning hit, which was an opposite-field slap that allowed Dewees to reach third base from first. I saw the sign so I knew Dewees was going to steal, and I saw him break with a good jump, so I thought Id just spray it backside and give him another base. We work on it in practice a lot. Pope enjoyed his clubs opportunity to get work in during spring break, adding, Whats a better spring break than playing baseball? Crystal River is off until next Thursday, when it takes on county rival Citrus at home. Associated PressMarques Colston is staying put in New Orleans. Brandon Marshall is headed to Chicago. Hours before free agency began Tuesday, the Saints star receiver agreed to a five-year contract to remain in the Big Easy. A bit later, Miami sent its top wideout, Marshall, to the Bears for two draft picks. Then another receiver made headlines in Washington when Pierre Garcon joined the Redskins after the free agency frenzy began. This was important to me, to be back with this team in this situation, Colston said in a statement released by the Saints. I was not looking to chase free agency. It was more important for me to be back in our program, a program we have been building and a program I believe in. The top free agent, of course, is Peyton Manning, who was released a week ago by the Colts. He still is conducting his limited tour of teams, but the Dolphins trade of their No. 1 receiver could indicate Miami is out of the running for the fourtime league MVP Garcon had 188 catches for 16 touchdowns and a 13.4-yard average in four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. Last year, he had 70 receptions for 947 yards and six TDs as Indianapolis finished 2-14. Washington, which is losing $36 million in salary cap space over the next two seasons for excessive spending in the uncapped 2010 season, also re-signed defensive end Adam Carriker for four years and $20 million, with $7 million guaranteed. Also re-upping with their teams were Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas, Eagles tackle Todd Herremans, Chargers center Nick Hardwick, Jets linebacker Bryan Thomas, Vikings backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels, Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant and linebacker Heath Farwell, Bears cornerback Tim Jennings, and 49ers linebacker Tavares Gooden.

Tampa Bay scored three times in the first five minutes and coasted from there to help rookie goalie Dustin Tokarski earn his first NHL victory. His teammates made it easy for Tokarski, as Tom Pyatt, Nate Thompson and Ryan Shannon scored quickly to ruin Marty Turcos first start as Bostons backup goalie. The Stanley Cup champions have lost three straight for the first time since late October and were limited to two shots in the opening period, 34 overall. Stamkos scored his 49th goal in the second period and added his NHL-best 50th at 11:43 of the third to move into a tie for the league scoring lead with Evgeni Malkin with 84 points.

Tampa Bay beats Boston 6-1 Associated PressPHOENIX Manny Ramirez hit his first home run of spring and Yoenis Cespedes went hitless again in Oaklands 8-6 win Tuesday over a Milwaukee Brewers split squad. Ramirez sent a long drive to leftcenter against right-hander Mike Fiers. Ramirez, who has not played in the majors since last April, had been 0 for 8 this spring. He also drew a walk and flied out. Ramirez must serve a 50-game suspension for a violation of baseballs drug policy. Cespedes, the Cuban outfielder the As signed to a four-year, $36 million deal, struck out twice and grounded out. He has gone hitless in six at-bats over his past two games. Orioles 7, Rays 7, 10 innings SARASOTA David Price worked into the fourth inning, and Matt Moore made his spring debut with a hitless 1 2/3 innings in Tampa Bays 10-inning tie with Baltimore.

Moore, the heralded left-hander who made his major league debut in mid-September and started the first game of the ALDS against Texas on Oct. 1, struck out three and walked one after missing time with abdominal soreness. Indians 8, Rangers 8, 10 innings GOODYEAR, Ariz. Yu Darvish couldnt command his fastball over three innings for the Texas Rangers in a 10-inning tie with the Cleveland Indians. The Japanese star walked four in his second spring start. He allowed two runs and three hits and struck out three.

Marlins 2, Braves 2, 10 innings JUPITER Carlos Zambrano struck out five in four innings for Miami in a 10-inning tie with Atlanta. Zambrano gave up two hits and one run.

LUCIE Adam Wainwright pitched three scoreless innings in his second outing of the spring, and David Freese and Yadier Molina homered as St. Louis beat the Mets. Wainwright, returning from elbow surgery that shelved him last season, gave up one hit and one walk, throwing 25 of 40 pitches for strikes. Mets starter Mike Pelfrey left some pitches up early on, and the Cardinals took advantage. Freese, the World Series MVP, hit a two-run shot over the right field wall with one out in the first inning, and Molina led off the second with a homer to left.Angels 3, Diamondbacks 0 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Dan Haren struck out seven of the last eight batters he faced in three innings and the Angels went on to beat Arizona. Haren gave up one hit, a leadoff single to Willie Bloomquist and walked none.

Hundley played in just 82 games last season because of an elbow injury.Rockies 5, Dodgers 2 GLENDALE, Ariz. Drew Pomeranz pitched two more scoreless innings before leaving with tightness in his right hip and Colorado beat the Dodgers. Considered a top prospect, Pomeranz was acquired by the Rockies last summer in the trade that sent Ubaldo Jimenez to Cleveland. The 23-year-old left-hander, drafted fifth overall in 2010, is a projected member of Colorados rotation this season after making four starts for the Rockies last year.

In front of a presidential audience, no less. T.J. Prices three-point play with 33 seconds left completed a furious rally from a 16-point deficit, and Western Kentucky held on for a 59-58 victory over Mississippi Valley State on Tuesday night. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron had front-row seats to see the tournament open with a ragged game that had an engrossing finish. The Hilltoppers (16-18) are the longest of long shots, the only squad in the 68-team field with a losing record. They turned up the full-court pressure in the last 5 minutes, overcoming a 16-point deficit with a comeback that won over the crowd at University of Dayton Arena. After the buzzer sounded, Obama and Cameron headed out, fans still buzzing over what had just happened.

Garth, Facinelli split after 11 yearsLOS ANGELES Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli say they are divorcing after 11 years. In a statement Tuesday, the couple said they decided to end their marriage but share the same deep love and devotion to our children. Garth and Facinelli said they remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together, and asked for privacy and respect. The Southern California couple are parents to 14-year-old Luca 9-year-old Lola and 5-year-old Fiona The 39-year-old Garth came to fame in the 1990s TV series Beverly Hills, 90210. The 38-year-old Facinelli is a co-star in the Twilight movie franchise. The couple married in January 2001.Springsteen recalls Clemons NEW YORK Bruce Springsteen tells Rolling Stone he shed tears when he heard Clarence Clemons saxophone on Wrecking Ball. Clem ons died last year. Springsteen intended to have Clemons on the new album, but says he passed on a recording session to check out his health and soon after had a stroke. After Clemons died, producer Ron Aniello took a live rendition of the concert staple Land of Hopes and Dreams, separated Clemons part and put it into a studio version. Plummer revives Barrymore NEW YORK Christopher Plummers haunting portrayal of John Barrymore is being given a new audience. Producers said Tuesday that the film Barrymore will be shown at cinemas in Canada beginning in May and throughout the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and other countries in October. Barrymore a twoperson play exploring the life of famed actor John Barrymore earned Plummer a Tony in 1997. Last year, the actor recreated his performance for multiple high-definition cameras. It was filmed over seven days on location and on the stage at the Elgin Theater in Toronto. Associated Press DYERSVILLE, IowaS hould we build it, and would they come? Those are the questions being debated in the Iowa town where the Field of Dreams movie was filmed as it considers a $38 million proposal to turn the farmland around the famous cornfield diamond into one of the nations largest youth baseball tournament and training complexes. An Illinois couple has announced plans to buy the farmhouse and baseball field featured in the 1989 film, along with surrounding land, to build the AllStar Ballpark Heaven, a complex of 24 baseball and softball diamonds, an indoor training facility and lodging that would draw teams from all around to compete in major tournaments. While the project could provide an economic jolt and breathe new life into Dyersvilles most valuable asset, it has unleashed fierce emotions that have pitted neighbors against each other and raised difficult questions for leaders of the town of 4,000. Should the city extend water and sewer service to make the project viable? Would enough people come to make it succeed? And if so, would the development ruin the nostalgic, country feel that made this part of rural Iowa a draw in the first place? This is one of those projects that has a high risk, but a high reward, said Jim Heavens, a cattle nutritionist who has been the citys part-time mayor for nine years. If everything goes according to Hoyle, it would be a boom for the town and a boom for the state and do something nice for youth. If it doesnt work out, theres going to be a lot of pieces to pick up. Dyersville, surrounded by lush farmland in the hills 30 miles west of Dubuque, has barely grown in recent decades and some residents say thats fine. The town has low unemployment and low taxes. Since the movie was filmed, about a farmer who builds a baseball field that attracts the ghosts of Shoeless Joe Jackson and other White Sox players banned for throwing the 1919 World Series, the farm has attracted a stream of visitors despite few amenities: a house that is usually closed and a wellkept baseball field surrounded by corn. One of the most popular activities is a simple game of catch at the site. But some businesses and attractions, such as the National Farm Toy Museum, got used to the tourism and were hurt when it began to drop in recent years. Two years ago, owners Don and Becky Lansing put the farm up for sale. The most vocal opposition to the proposed development comes from a small group of the farmers who raise cattle and pigs and grow corn and soybeans nearby. They worry the 193-acre project, expected to draw caravans of players and families every year, would disrupt their rural life. They worry about driving farm equipment in the traffic, and whether theyll face regulations on spraying crops and spreading manure with so many children nearby. Wayne Ameskamp, whose family sold its portion of the movie site to the Lansings in 2008 after years of feuding between the families over its use, has spoken out in public and private meetings with city officials and neighbors. Dont let them build these baseball diamonds out in the country and take our farmland out of production and ruin our piece of heaven, he told the city council recently. He worries his family would no longer be able to peacefully gather around a fire at its private campsite, nicknamed Hillbilly Heaven. Jeff Pape, whose family farm dates to 1851, said he worries the development, if done incorrectly, could totally destroy years of work by farmers to reduce runoff and pollution in a creek running through the site. Investors Mike and Denise Stillman came up with the idea for the baseball complex in 2010 after Mike, a lawyer, and his son, then 8, stopped to play catch on the way home from a Minnesota Twins game. As planned, it would join a handful of such complexes in the U.S., including one near the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. The site would create hundreds of jobs in restaurants, lodging and recreation in a six-county region, according to a study commissioned by developers. Up to 1,500 families of players aged 8 through 14 would trek to the site weekly for camps and tournaments, the study said. Famous field sparks fight Birthday: A discarded interest from the past might be resurrected and revitalized in the year ahead, and it could turn out to be surprisingly profitable. This will be due not only to the correct timing, but to some new allies who know what theyre doing. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) A friend who is in need of a strong shoulder to cry on is likely to come to you with some frustrating burdens. Fortunately, among all his or her peers, you are the best one to lean on. Aries (March 21-April 19) Most of the effort you expend on behalf of others will go unrewarded or unappreciated, even though you probably wont mind. A few people, however, will offer thanks. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Direct your creativity toward gratifying a personal objective that youve been fearful to try. Chances are that what you do will be clever and fun and will give you much satisfaction. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Something that has caused you nothing but frustration recently can be taken care of if you make it your prime target. If its a priority, you can wrap it up once and for all. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Be sure to acknowledge those who assist you. Although youll be willing to work hard, the success of a project is likely to be due in part to a few others who pitch in and help. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Although your goals might be a bit difficult to achieve, the rewards they offer could be so enticing that theyll impel you to at least try. Give things your maximum effort. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Instead of finally being able to coast as you thought, it might become necessary for you to step up the pace in order to protect an investment that you share with others. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you keep searching, you will find an answer to a situation that appears to have no valid solution. Chances are, its fear that has caused you to overlook the answer up until now. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) There is plenty of justification for your positive outlook. If your hopes and expectations appear to be a bit high to others, dont let their negative thinking cause you to believe otherwise. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Your chart shows many possibilities for large gains at this time. Thus, if you have to work hard for what you hope to get, it will be well worth it. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If you truly believe in your ideas, you shouldnt have any problem convincing others of their worth discuss their potential with possible supporters. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Before involving yourself in a huge endeavor with others, thoroughly investigate it. Detailed scrutiny will reveal its attributes as well as its shortcomings.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES A judge on Tuesday pared down Nicollette Sheridans wrongful termination case by ruling that jurors wont consider a battery claim against the creator of TVs Desperate Housewives. The verdict will now focus solely on whether jurors believe Sheridan was fired from the show because she complained about an on-set dispute with series creator Marc Cherry. However, the judge said attorneys can still refer to Sheridans claim that Cherry struck her when they deliver their closing arguments Wednesday. Defense attorney Adam Levin said Cherry was pleased that he had been vindicated of the battery claim. Sheridans attorney Mark Baute said the ruling will simplify deliberations and his client is still entitled to punitive damages if she wins. The actress is seeking roughly $6 million for being fired during the shows fifth season. Sheridan claims Cherry struck her hard on her left temple during an argument in September 2008. But the veteran TV writer maintains he tapped her to give her artistic direction. Testimony in the case ended Tuesday after nine days. One of the last witnesses a set worker offered a final twist when he told jurors he received an email that he believed called for the destruction of files related to the firing of Sheridan. Construction coordinator Michael Reinhart took the stand in the packed courtroom over the objections of Levin, who suggested Reinhart might have been confused and misread the message. Reinhart testified that the email made him uncomfortable, even though he could not remember its exact contents. He did recall that it contained the words delete hard drive and Nicollette Sheridan. Reinhart said he immediately deleted the message and believed it had been mistakenly sent to him after Sheridan filed the lawsuit in 2010. He said he called Sheridans attorney Mark Baute on Sunday to tell him about the email because he wanted both sides to have all the information. Housewives lawsuit trimmed by judge

After work, my father would check on the garden, and if necessary, weed or add some mulch or prune. He knew enough not to water too much or constantly poke the plants to see how they were doing. The ultimate sign of his success in the garden came at the end of the season when he picked the tomatoes, onions and cucumbers. He did the same as an accountant; once a year, he looked at a companys books to determine its health. Back in the early 2000s, Gov. Jeb Bush wanted a better way to measure the health of our students and, consequently, the health of our schools. He helped push through legislation that used the FCAT test to grade public schools from A to F. As a parent, I like that. I like knowing whether the school my son attends is getting good results. However, the desire to test and measure our students has become pathologically obsessive. The state of Floridas overzealousness to measure has, I fear, gotten in the way of actual teaching. It has become the equivalent of a gardener overwatering the plants and damaging them in the process. This year alone, students at Lecanto High School will take the FCAT writing, FCAT reading, End of Course Exams (EOC) for algebra 1, geometry, and biology (next year there will be more), PERT (Post-Secondary Education Readiness Test) reading and writing, PERT math, AP exams, IB exams, the SAT and the ACT. To make matters worse, some of these exams (such as the FCAT reading, EOCs and PERT) are done via computer. During the months of April and May, our media center at Lecanto High School has become a de facto testing center. Basically, students do not have access to the books and resources for two months. Some of these tests clearly overlap. For example, students who do not score high enough in FCAT reading or FCAT See BUETTNER / Page C2 E DUCATION Section C WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Culinary curriculum flourishes at Texas high school Students learn to cook, serve and run a restaurant J EFFREY W EISS The Dallas Morning NewsDALLAS The front house manager kept her eye on the customers. The back house manager focused on the orders. The various servers, prep workers and sous-chefs attended to their tasks. Just like a real restaurant. And why not? The Eagle Caf is a real restaurant, staffed by juniors in Richardson High Schools culinary arts program. The caf, inside the school on Fridays, has been a weekly secondsemester project for 11th-graders for about five years. Special orders dont upset them. Salad dressing on the side? Cheese left off? No problem. You have to work fast, said Faith Banks, the back house boss. And be very, very organized. These days, many North Texas districts have culinary arts programs and associated studentrun restaurants. But 11 years ago, when Karen Hill started Richardsons culinary arts program, there werent many local models. I had nine kids and no curriculum and no budget, Hill said cheerfully. Now she has about 60 students in the program and works out of a spacious kitchen with enough cookery for a competition or a small restaurant. When Hill decided to start the restaurant, it was among the first of its kind in North Texas, she said. But it was a logical next step for a program designed to give students practical skills theyll need to go on to cooking schools or jobs in the food service industry. This gives them restaurant experience without having to go to work, Hill said. Culinary arts is one of several such programs offered at many local high schools. From auto repair to cosmetology to a variety of tech-related courses, kids graduate with experience and nationally recognized certificates that demonstrate theyre ready for hiring or more advanced education. The Eagle Caf has some challenges compared with your standard eatery. The 13 juniors enrolled in the practicum culinary class have it for only two hours a day, so a lot of prep work has to be done a day or so in advance. Many of the customers are teachers and school staffers, who get only 45 minutes for lunch, so speed is of the essence. And theres only room for 20 in the small conference-room-turned-dining-room. But the cafe pays for itself. On Friday, it served about 60 plates: salads, grilled panini, sandwiches, soup, desserts made from scratch. Any adult can eat there or order takeout. (Call the school to make a reservation or place an order.) Workers in several nearby offices regularly take advantage of that. Laura Shorlo and a co-worker dropped by to pick up their orders Friday. Shorlo found out about the cafe last year when her son, Zak, was a junior working there. Shorlo had nothing but praise for the food and the program. He may have found his future, she said of her sons participation. The kids were efficient but not perfect last week. Hill caught a couple of boys not wearing gloves as they chopped fruit. An oven door was left ajar. A soup recipe needed tweaking. But mainly, the students took care of business See CAFE / Page C2 Advocates: States should give foster kids lawyers Associated PressMIAMI When Lauren entered foster care at age 16, she was too scared to go to the court hearings that were deciding her future. She was wary of the judge and struggled to navigate the complex legal system of dependency court on top of adjusting to life in a group home. But Laurens attorney eventually persuaded her to attend, convincing her of how important it was for the judge to hear about Laurens experiences in her own words. Having legal help like that is uncommon for the nations more than 400,000 foster children. Massachusetts, Connecticut, and more than a dozen other states require that foster children have appointed attorneys. But compliance is sporadic because of shrinking budgets. And Florida has a pilot program that advocates are pushing other states to try. These are abused and neglected kids, for whom the most life-altering decisions will be made in juvenile courts across the country ... and yet so many kids are denied this most basic right every day, said attorney Ira Lustbader, associate director for the advocacy group Childrens Rights.

Elementary school students travel the world without leaving the classroom M ATTHEWB ECK Staff writer HERNANDO T he first-grade class of Ashlynn Ramirez went on a field trip around the world last week without ever leaving their classroom, thanks to a piece of high-tech software called Skype. Skype is a wildly popular, computer-based communication service that allows computer users to speak as well as see each other in real time. In Ramirezs Hernando Elementary School class the laptopcomputer image was beamed through a projector to the front of the room so the students could see a larger-than-life projection of the person on the other end of their Skype call. Ramirezs first-graders were the beneficiaries of the technology training she attended during the 2011 school year. Last year, Mr. Jerry Swiatek had a technology training, and he showed us how to Skype, she said. We Skyped with another class that had snow and it was a really cool experience for the teachers to see. So immediately I started thinking about ways I could utilize that in my classroom. I contacted Jerry this year and we came up with a list of people we could Skype with. Ramirez said the lesson has energized her class. I think this excites them because for this generation, technology is their language, she said. This is a way that they can travel and have some really awesome experiences without ever having to leave the classroom. They are seeing how awesome technology really is.

Were trying to prepare them for a world that we have no idea what it will be like in years to come. Its really important to put a foundation in place where they can be aware of the things around them. And its important to their success in the future. The technology we have today makes the world a much smaller place than when we were young. Through Swiateks professional learning network, established through Twitter, he said he assisted the teacher to get the class in touch with educators all over the world through Skype. She had the idea of a Skype field-trip day so the kids could learn from them, he said. And thats what has brought us here today. Some of the people the students Skyped with were living in Fort Worth, TX; Brazil; Costa Rica; Merced, CA; New Zealand; Chinatown, NY; and Saskatchewan, Canada. Laura Manos, who is in her third year as principal at the school, said technology is a way to broaden her teachers and ultimately her students horizons. This technology gives the teacher the ability to reach out to the rest of the world, she said. And gives our teachers the ability to learn things from other teachers. And our students are certainly comfortable with it. Manos said the Citrus County School District supports the use of technology in the classroom. The entire district encourages teachers to utilize technology.

Bella and her fellow classmates had just wrapped up Skyping with Ron Hautman of Grand Rapids, Mich. The youngster said she learned some things about the northern state she didnt know before her Skype. I learned its very, very cold there, she said. And I learned that they have a lot of animals that we dont have here, like a white owl. Technology guru Swiatek said while he wouldnt go as far as to call bringing this type of technology to the classroom his driving mission, he did say it is a vitally important link in student education. He believes it will carry long-lasting effects for children. This is something that should be happening all the time across the county and across the country, Swiatek said. It should be used to expose the students to other people and other cultures. This is important to me, and this technology excites me. The kids are going to remember this years from now. I think this will open up some doors for them. I think its great. Chronicle staff writer Matthew Beck can be reached at 352-564-2919 or mbeck@chronicleonline. com. SKYPE Continued from Page C1 MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Teacher Ashlynn Ramirez uses a globe to show two of her students where one of their Skype partners is located. math must take the PERT. If students fail this test, then students have to take specific classes and do the PERT again. Why dont we just skip the PERT and use the FCAT to make that decision? Why add another test? Ultimately, the purpose of all of these tests is to make sure that students are college ready. That is the new Florida law. But why must there be so many tests to determine this? Why not just skip the FCAT, the EOCs, the PERT and have all students take the ACT their junior year? In fact, students who earn a certain score on the ACT can use this score to exempt them from FCAT or PERT. So why have two other tests? Wont ACT give us the data we need to determine the health of our students? Plus, students can then use it for their college applications. Accountability is good. Watering plants is good. However, overwatering stifles growth, and the tests designed to measure ability actually prevent that ability from being developed. Darrick Buettner is the IB Coordinator at Lecanto High School BUETTNER Continued from Page C1 without much oversight. The culinary arts program, the students were near-unanimous in saying, has been much harder than they expected. Food safety, the specific techniques of cleaning a whole fish, the fine points of keeping a sauce creamy its a lot more than baking cakes for grades. In fact, even baking a cake isnt as easy as you might think. Lauren Domingos, the back house manager, thought she wanted to become a pastry chef when she started the program. But the incredibly specific details needed to produce consistent baked goods came as a shock. Thats an OCD profession, said Lauren, who now has her sights set on the greater freedom of savory cooking. Not everybody in the class has professional cooking plans. William Crawford is planning for a college degree in business. But cooking seemed like a skill worth developing, he said. Im on the swim team, so I have to eat a lot, he said. And hes already figured out that knowing how to cook can have other benefits. It helped me out on Valentines Day, he said. children to have legal counsel. When Lauren fought with another girl and was charged with simple battery and assault in adult criminal court, her attorney, Aviance Jenkins, was there to give the judge details about Laurens history in foster care in DeKalb County. The charges were eventually dropped. Its important to let (foster children) know they have a voice and theres someone willing to think on their behalf, said Lauren, who is now 18. Her lawyer only gave her first name to protect her from the stigma others sometimes associate with being in foster care. In the past five years, DeKalb County grew from two lawyers representing foster children to a department with 11 attorneys, plus investigators and paralegals. The average caseload before the judges ruling was about 850. Now, it is now between 550 and 650 and every child is seen four to six times a year. The average amount of time children in the county spend in foster care has dropped from nine months to less than three, according to statistics given by its director. Fulton County went from four lawyers for 2,000 kids to about 17 lawyers. Florida and other states say children with attorneys do move through the system faster, which could save money. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently awarded a $5 million grant to the University of Michigan to study how to better connect foster children with legal help. The American Bar Association recently wrote legislation and is urging lawmakers in several states, including Florida, to require attorneys for all foster children. A pilot program in Palm Beach County, Fla., showed children with effective counsel in dependency cases found permanent homes at about twice the rate of unrepresented children, according to a 2008 study by Chapin Hall, the University of Chicagos research arm. That program, which has 14 attorneys with an average caseload of 35 kids, works with about 800 foster children a year, costing taxpayers about $1.7 million. But advocates say thats less than what the state would pay for extended stays in foster care. Florida spends between $150 to $200 a day to care for each child. Mississippi and South Carolina require attorneys for children, but experts say the law is rarely followed.

CHALK Continued from Page C3 See CHALK / Page C8 Report: Restraints used on thousands of students K IMBERLYH EFLING AP Education WriterWASHINGTON Tens of thousands of students, most of them disabled, are strapped down or physically restrained in school, and disability advocates hope that a new Education Department report detailing the practice of seclusion and restraint will spur federal action to end it. The report, compiled and made public for the first time by the departments civil rights arm, shows that 70 percent of students subjected to the techniques have disabilities. There are no current federal standards on the use of the techniques in schools. The American Association of School Administrators says they are a last resort in protecting students and faculty from physical harm and keeping some children with behavioral problems in schools who might otherwise go into residential institutions. Advocates for the disabled say the use of seclusion and restraint is too accepted in schools and has led to abuse. They want Congress or the department to help curtail the practice. They point to news reports and a Government Accountability Office study in 2009 illustrating cases of children as young as preschool age who were duct-taped to chairs and locked alone for hours. That report by Congress investigative and auditing arm did not determine whether these types of allegations were widespread, but investigators did find hundreds of cases of alleged abuse and death related to the use of these methods on schoolchildren during the past two decades. In one recent case, the mother of a Kentucky boy with autism said that when she went to her sons school, she found him stuffed in a canvas duffel bag in the hallway. Connecticut lawmakers are considering a bill that would require the state to report how often special education students are isolated because of emotional outbursts. That follows incidents in Middletown, Conn., where special education students were allegedly isolated in scream rooms during outbursts. Sasha Pudelski, government affairs manager at the school administrators association, said except in rare cases, school workers use seclusion and restraint safely and only when necessary. She said federal action isnt appropriate because the issue should be addressed at the local and state level, which is happening. We would never defend the heinous practices that are sometimes highlighted, Pudelski said. The departments data from the 2009-2010 school year showed tens of thousands of instances in which the techniques were reportedly used. It also showed that, while black students represent 21 percent of students with disabilities, they account for 44 percent of students with disabilities who are subjected to mechanical restraints. Its unclear the circumstances or exact methods used in the cases. People on both sides of the debate said the new numbers dont show a complete picture. Because they are based on a survey that relied on self-reporting in about 85 percent of schools, activists said there are likely many more cases. Pudelski said it was the first time that schools were asked to compile the statistics, so there was confusion about how to count some situations, and therefore probably over-reporting. Reece L. Peterson, a special education professor at the University of Nebraska who has testified before Congress on the topic, said theres a consensus among special educators about using seclusion and restraint only in emergencies where theres a threat of someone getting hurt. Based on the departments new numbers, Peterson said, there is some evidence that these things are being used on a basis more widely than simply these kind of emergency situations. Reports of such incidents should be minuscule, said Maureen Fitzgerald, director of disability rights at the Arc, which advocates for people with disabilities. Fitzgerald said when abuses occur, its usually because workers arent properly trained. They are put in situations where theyre not trained, they dont have the support they need and things get out of control because they dont know how to manage the kids, and they do whatever they can to keep everybody calm and safe ... and thats when people start getting hurt, Fitzgerald said. Fitzgeralds organization is among several disability organizations seeking passage of a bill by Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, that would prohibit the use of seclusion and allow restraints only in emergency situations and until the danger of serious bodily injury has passed. Rep. George Miller, DCalif., has a similar bill in the House. Legislation to address the issue sponsored by Miller passed in 2010 but failed to get out of the Senate. Activists also say the Education Department should be doing more to highlight and end the practice. In a report this past week, Curt Decker, the executive director of the National Disability Rights Network, wrote that the department hasnt provided meaningful leadership on the issue and has failed to issue clear guidance on when seclusion and restraint might violate the law.

C OMICSC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EDNESDAY, M ARCH 14, 2012 C7 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google, said, When the Internet publicity began, I remember being struck by how much the world was not the way we thought it was, that there was infinite variation in how people viewed the world. Infinite is surely an overbid. There are many themes in bridge, but not an infinite number. This deal is a variation on yesterdays. Now Souths chances in six spades are excellent. What should South do after West leads the club queen, marking East with the ace? When North promised some points with his raise to three spades, South hoped his partners values would be useful. Declarer sees that the contract is laydown if the hearts split 3-2, which the mathematicians say will happen just a little more than two times in three. But South should consider how to make his contract even when hearts are 4-1. Yesterday, when dummy did not have the club king, declarer drew trumps, eliminated the minors, and led a low heart from his hand. To beat the contract, West had to play his queen a Crocodile Coup to swallow his partners jack. Now that dummy has the club king, there is a much better plan. South ruffs at trick one, draws trumps, and cashes his top hearts. When they are 4-1, declarer takes his diamond tricks, ending on the board. Then he leads the club king, discarding a heart loser. East is endplayed, forced to concede a ruffand-sluff, on which Souths last heart evaporates. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53 A mer i can W ee d W ar Over Weed Al as k a St a t e T roopers D rugs, I nc.

My fiance, Stan, didnt like his last job, so my brother hired him. Stan has been working there for a year. I recently found out that Stan has been pulling nasty pranks on my brother. He never mentioned it to me. My brother works alone during the busiest part of the day, with the pressures from sales people, supervisors, repair people, etc. Stan works the evening shift and has a helper, but they are the only two in the building. Still, Stan is apparently upset by things my brother doesnt get to during the day. I have seen the pictures of the pranks: cutting the fingertips off the gloves my brother uses for his work; putting spray powder and piles of wood on the chair my brother sits in. He hides tools and rags. The list is endless. I think Stan is being disrespectful and childish. I have never treated his family members with such disrespect. I am upset and disappointed. These pranks are ridiculous and uncalled for, and I am stuck in the middle. My brother is under enough stress. He hasnt said anything to Stan, but his wife told me it takes him an additional 40 minutes every morning to find the tools that are missing and get things ready for his day. Stan is a 39-year-old man. Should I intervene or let them work this out on their own? My brother has said he doesnt want to come to our wedding. I know he wouldnt miss it, but Im sad he feels this way. Disappointed in Pittsburgh Dear Pittsburgh: If it were up to us, there would be no wedding for your brother to miss. Stan is an immature idiot. He may think these pranks are funny, but we suspect the only reason your brother hasnt fired him is because he is engaged to you. Tell Stan to knock it off immediately and grow up. If he has a problem with management, he should discuss it like an adult. Dear Annie : My husband and I have been married for 20 years. He is in the military reserves and could be called up for active duty at any time. Six months ago, he did a 180degree turn. Now I feel like I am living with an alien in my home. He has totally detached himself from me. He is an excellent father to the children, but wont speak to me. He says if I ask him how his workday was, he will lie. His reasoning is that he does not want to put more stress on me, because I suffer from anxiety. He sees the anxiety as a weakness. He will not hug or kiss me, and intimacy is out of the question. He says he is happy coexisting. He refuses counseling and wont discuss it with his family. He will not go to the doctor for a physical. I finally broke down and gave him 30 days to change. He said he wants six months. My question is: How much can a person take? We are both in our 40s. I would love to know whether other military spouses understand this. Lost in the USA Dear Lost : We have no idea whats going on with your husband. Is he stressed from the possibility of being deployed? Is he seeing someone else? Is he punishing you for some reason? If he wont address it and you are miserable, get counseling without him, and chart the best path for yourself and your children. Dear Annie : I am sorry that Amazed in Honolulu receives unwanted advances and inappropriate comments from male business associates. However, my gripe is about when she says the advances invariably come from a short, older, heavyset, balding guy. How rude to slam individuals based on physical characteristics. Shame on her. When we are born, we arent given the option of being short or tall, getting bald or having thick hair, etc. Shes missing out on a lot by having such a judgmental and shallow attitude. D.S.

Celebrate Reading is a session consisting of two programs geared toward helping preschool and elementary schoolage children develop literacy skills, improve their reading and gain a love of books. The first program, PAWS to Read, gives children the opportunity to build confidence in their reading ability by reading aloud to a certified therapist. The second program, Reading Pals, pairs teens and younger children together. Teens read storybooks aloud to one or two younger children at a time. Children may wish to draw or write about a story they like. Listening to stories, talking about stories and reading aloud are great ways to improve literacy skills while having a good time.
