PAGE A4 TODAY & Thursday morning Man accused of extorting teacher M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS An Ohio man is charged with posing as a woman in an online relationship with a Citrus County school teacher, and then blackmailing the teacher with bogus accusations when she broke it off, authorities said. James Barker, 39, of the Toledo suburb of Swanton, was arrested March 8 by Fulton County, Ohio, deputies on extortion charges. He was extradited Friday to Citrus County and promptly released from jail on $10,000 bond, sheriffs office spokeswoman Heather Yates said. Extortion is a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The Chronicle is withholding the teachers name because of the nature of the charges. Yates said the teacher corresponded by Facebook, email and phone with Barker thinking she was a woman. Yates said Barker disguised his voice on the phone. She said the teacher approached the sheriffs office on Feb. 13, saying she was in an online relationship with a Colorado woman and that the woman was threatening her if the relationship ended. Yates said the teacher did not know until recently that the correspondence was actually with a man posing as a woman. According to Yates, this is what happened: The teacher began an online Facebook friendship with a Colorado woman who identified herself as Kristy Campbull. The friendship eventually led to an online relationship that included the exchange of emails and photographs. However, Yates said, the teacher was unaware that Campbull did not exist at least not by that name.

The club focuses on local craft that would have been used in the mid to late 1800s, he said.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The man who led deputies on a high speed chase late last month after brazenly stealing television sets at Sears pleaded no contest Tuesday and was sentenced to 48 months. Harry Glen Whitney III, 51, was in court to be arraigned, but instead struck a deal with prosecutors and decided to enter a no contest plea. Circuit Judge Ric Howard tagged him a habitual felony offender before sentencing him. After his sentence, Whitney offered an apology. I apologize to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office for taking them on a spin and the businesses, he said before bailiffs took him away. According to his initial arrest report, on Feb. 23, Crystal River Mall Sears employees spotted Whitney stealing two Samsung LED televisions. Three Sears associates attempted to stop him, but couldnt. Whitney was seen taking off in a 2001 gray Dodge Dakota pick-up truck with extensive damage to the drivers side. A be-on-the-lookout order (BOLO) was issued as Whitney led a highspeed chase east on State Road 44 in Crystal River. Despite attempts by marked CCSO units to stop him, he didnt and continued eastbound on S.R. 44 to Homosassa Trail, continuing along the road until he made a U-turn at the fire station near U.S. 19. The sheriffs report said Whitney was wildly swerving from left to right, attempting to strike my vehicle and other police vehicles. Eventually, Whitneys truck struck the arresting officers vehicle, causing Whitney to lose control and leave the roadway. He was placed under arrest and transported to the county jail. The arresting officer also reported that he recognized Whitney immediately as the person captured on video Feb. 16 stealing a $1,279.95 generator from Honda of Crystal River. Chronicle reporter A.B.

Harry Whitney III Man accused of fleeing after snatching TVs pleads no contest According to an arrest report, Whitney started wildly swerving from left to right, attempting to hit law enforcement vehicles in pursuit. A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS It was a day Migdalia Berrios said she saw coming for quite a while actually a little under two years ago when her daughter started dating Aaron Lee Potts. Aaron would later wed Alexza, Berrios daughter, and they quickly had two children together. Both Alexza and Aaron had one child each from previous relationships a blended family. But Berrios had her doubts about bliss in the new setup. She alleges abuse of Alexza at the hands of Aaron and then there was the case of Aarons 5-year-old stepson, Berrios grandson, nursing a broken arm. And, there was the crying and wailing whenever Berrios, who was raising Alezxas eldest child, would try to take him over to see his mom on weekends. He would always (say), I dont want to go, Mom. He calls me mom. I tried to tell them there was something wrong, but they would not listen, Berrios said. Then another time, she alleges her grandson came home from a weekend visit with scratches on his neck and a burn on his lower body. Berrios said she allegedly found out later it was the result of a cigarette burn and choking. Tuesday, in Circuit Judge Ric Howards court, both Aaron Lee Potts, 28, and Alexza Marisol Potts, 26, were arraigned separately for alleged crimes against the little boy Berrios tried to warn them about. Aaron is facing four counts of aggravated child abuse. Alexza is facing two counts of child abuse allegedly trying to cover up Aarons actions. If convicted, Aaron could face up 30 years in prison and Alexza up to five years. Their cases have been continued to May 1. The prosecution alleges Aaron sprayed the young boys groin area with scalding water causing first, second and third degree burns. According to the CCSO report, when Alexza, who was at work during the alleged crimes, was first questioned about it, she denied noticing anything unusual, but later admitted she noticed the injuries, but was told it was a bad bug bite because Aaron had been out with the kids at a local park Grandmother tells of fears, heartache Aaron Potts Alexza Potts See ACHE / Page A5 CRHS TENNIS: Local girls victorious In Tuesday match, team beats Santa Fe 7-0./ Page B1
be about 45 feet, with 36 feet of that being deck. The boat is 12 feet wide. Kingery said the project is not just about building a boat. The boat-building is almost a sideline to the intent of the overall project, he said. This is an outreach project. We are educating our volunteers, in that they are learning the process and history of boat-building and are working with hand tools. And for the visitors to the park, they get the opportunity to be educated and tied into the local, maritime heritage. There are no power tools used in the project, and that makes the challenge of making a seaworthy vessel all the more tedious. Park volunteer and CRBB member Jack Bosen has been building and restoring wooden boats for 25 years. He said he got his start working on wooden vessels as a stress reliever from a sales job at home near Havre DeGrace, Md. Its just a lot of fun and a lot of good people to work with, he said. Its a great project because its a large boat, and the whole idea of building the boat with hand tools is just wonderful to me. To build a vintage boat of this nature with hand tools only is a great challenge. Bosen, who oversees the construction of the vessel, said a new set of skills must be learned when working exclusively with hand tools. Hand drills, planers and chisels are a few of the tools the workers employ to construct their craft. The challenge is learning or relearning how to use a hand tool. Like how to cut a straight line, how to cut a square line, how to use a plane; most of the people here have never done that, he said. When they are required to only use hand tools, like on this project, they become craftsmen. Its a growth thing on their part, and weve got a good product coming out. Theyre doing a good job, and there are some really good craftsmen here. Bosen paused momentarily from cutting a 12-foot, high-density pine plank with his hand saw, and said one of the most challenging aspects of the construction for many of the volunteers is learning how to cut a straight line with the hand saw. Its very hard, he said. Most people dont know how to hold a saw properly. They have to be taught. Then it has to become part of the learning process of how to do it. Kingery said the first phase of the project is nearly done. We are nearing the completion of the hull-building stage with the boat being built upside down, he said. Sometime late this spring, the boat will be turned over and we will finish building it right-side up. But before we turn it over, we have to get the hull ready for the water, even though it wont be going in the water for probably another year. To prep the deck planking on the bottom of the vessel, it will be caulked with Oakum, which Kingery described as a hemp rope treated with pine tar and linseed oil. He said, We want to stay with a tar product to keep the construction traditional. The Oakum process will make the vessel watertight. Kingery said he expects the boat to be at or near completion in April 2013, just in time for the clubs annual Crystal River Boat Bash. This year, the clubs annual boat bash will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 28 at the park. Funding for the project has come through a grant from the Florida Public Archeology Network as well as from the Friends of the Crystal River Preserve State Park to which all boat builders belong. For anyone who would like to get in on the project, all we ask is that you sign up to be a volunteer at the park, Kingery said. We work on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. For more information, visit the club on Facebook by searching for Crystal River Boat Builders, or go to their website at www.TSCA.net/CRBB.com/. The club, about 20 members strong, works rain or shine, 12 months a year. The Crystal River Preserve State Park is at 3266 N. Sailboat Ave. Take U.S. 19 north of the Crystal River Mall and turn west onto State Park Drive at the Days Inn and proceed straight to the park.

C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterYANKEETOWN The town council of Yankeetown voted unanimously to accept the changes to ballot titles and text for the proposed referendum, questions that will be placed on the May 8, 2012 election ballot for amendments to the towns comprehensive plan, at a meeting Monday night. Thats what these meetings are for, Mayor Janie A. Hinson said. To make sure we are happy with the ballot questions. We did clarify the ballot questions and we tweaked them. The voters will decide if they want to amend the elements in chapter one, future land use; chapter three, housing; chapter four, public facilities (storm water drainage and solid waste); chapter five, conservation and coastal management; chapter seven, intergovernmental co ordination; chapter nine, monitoring and evaluation; and whether to include the long-term planning horizon of 2020 to the legend of the adopted future land use map. The mayor said the town was sending out a letter to all registered voters in the town, something that is not mandatory, explaining the amendments, to let them know whats on the ballot, so theyll come out and vote. The council also decided to authorize the town clerk, Laura L. Coyle, to appoint an election board that will be paid $8 per hour during the election. Voting is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 8, at the Inglis/Yankeetown Lions Club at 22 59th St. Chronicle reporter Cathy Kapulka can be reached at 352-564-2922 or ckapulka@ chronicleonline.com. Around THE STATE Floral City Recreational vehicle destroyed in fire Firefighters from the Fire Rescue division of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office responded to a reported RV fire early Tuesday morning at 8955 S. Lakeshore Drive, Floral City. The first unit to arrive on the scene at 12:46 a.m. was from the Floral City station and found a 12-by-25-foot RV fully involved in fire, with two 50-pound propane cylinders venting. Crews began a defensive attack, concentrating on cooling the propane tanks. Verification was made that no one was still in the RV. The fire was controlled in approximately 10 minutes. Additional crews from the Inverness and Sugarmill Woods stations arrived to assist with water supply and to fight the fire. One person was sleeping in the RV at the time of the fire and was able to escape after being awakened by the smell of smoke. Units remained on the scene for about one hour. The RV was a total loss. Damage is estimated at $25,000. The fire is believed to have started by a shorted electrical cord. Sanford Feds, state probe teens shooting An unarmed black teenager shot to death by a neighborhood watch captain told his girlfriend moments before he was killed that he was being followed, a lawyer said Tuesday as federal and state prosecutors announced they would investigate. Oh hes right behind me, hes right behind me again, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin told his girlfriend on his cellphone, the Martin familys attorney said. The girl later heard Martin say, Why are you following me? Another man asked, What are you doing around here? attorney Benjamin Crump said. The phone call that recorded Martins final moments was disclosed as the U.S. Justice Department opened a federal civil rights probe into the Feb. 26 shooting and the local prosecutor convened a grand jury to investigate. A grand jury will meet April 10 to consider evidence in the case, said Seminole County State Attorney Norm Wolfinger. The neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman, has not been charged and said he shot Martin, who was returning to a gated community in Sanford after buying candy at a convenience store, in self-defense after Martin attacked him. Police say Zimmerman is white; his family says he is Hispanic. She absolutely blows Zimmermans absurd self-defense claim out of the water, Crump said of Martins girlfriend, whose name was withheld. Ocala Man gets life for fatal home invasion A Georgia man has been sentenced to life in prison for a fatal north Florida home invasion. A Marion County judge sentenced 25-year-old Antonio Lyons on Tuesday after a jury found him guilty of murder. Authorities say Lyons and another man, 41-year-old Arthur Lee Dukes, went to rob Marvin Wilkersons home in October 2008 after they heard he had won a large sum of money from dog fighting. Prosecutors say Wilkerson sustained a fatal gunshot during a confrontation with the two intruders. The Ocala Star-Banner reported Dukes is still awaiting trial for first-degree murder and armed robbery.

The ceiling on this part of the garage is covered in Life magazine photographs and magazine covers. Citrus Springs man turns garage into piece of nostalgia N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff Writer CITRUS SPRINGS W hy have a plain old garage when you can have a s-style place to hang out? Thats what W.B. Doc Freer thought as he and a friend started adding a little this and a little that until they created a step back in history. Freer, 63, said he wanted a place where he and other car guys could hang out and have it be like when they were young. From the pot-bellied stove and Wheaties boxes with Willie Mays and Lou Gehrig on the fronts to the black rotary-dial telephone, Meet the Beatles record album cover and Marlboro cigarettes light, its a walk down memory lane for any baby boomer. We camouflaged everything, Freer said. Old movie posters cover the water heater, the fuse box becomes part of the stove. Theres a place to play checkers a table made from a slice of a cypress tree a two-stool mini soda bar. Look up and view a collage of history: More than 100 articles, advertisements and photos from Look and Life magazines cover the ceiling space flight, the Kennedys, Sharon Tate, Woodstock, the Rat Pack, Joe DiMaggio. On the wall hangs an assortment of nostalgia photos of mid-20th century cars, a photo of the original race track at Daytona, even a set of pre-World War II golf clubs. Once night falls, the lighted signs, such as a RCA Victor sign with the iconic record player and dog, shine. It doesnt have the romance and atmosphere until its dark out, Freer said. He said he keeps his Corvette in the garage overnight, a fitting place for a sporty car. But during the day, its open for neighbors to come by and see, hang for a while, talk cars just like guys have done for decades. There are hundreds of ideas that people can do to camouflage their garages, Freer said, and lots of theme ideas to make them jump back in history.

N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Three days after St. Patricks Day, and members of the Inverness city council were still talking about being green at Tuesdays city council meeting. However, this green wasnt Irish green, but environmental green as Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni opened the discussion about Progress Energy bringing two charging stations for electric vehicles into the city. While DiGiovanni admitted he hasnt seen many, if any, electric cars in Citrus County, the possibility of them being the wave of the future is real. Still in the thinking about it stages, he said the charging stations would be in two parking spaces, probably in the Bank of Inverness lot, because the power source is already available in that area, as opposed to using two spaces in the Inverness government parking lot outside city hall, which would require tearing up the concrete to install electrical power lines. This is in the early stages. This is new. This is emerging technology, he said. But were constantly looking at expanding the attractiveness of Inverness and what we offer as far as green services. As the council discussed the idea, members were ambivalent. Council president Jacqui Hepfer said, All this new technology is just another part of the feds thing to get us to all buy these electric cars to go green. My jurys still out on this. Council member Cabot McBride said the matter was too premature and they needed more time and information to even discuss it any further. There are a lot of questions that need answers, such as the number of vehicles that would use this type of thing, he said. Also, the idea of giving people a free charge Im not crazy about that. Right now Im looking at this with the same attitude as I have about Port Citrus. Its an interesting concept, but lets get some more information. Also at Tuesdays council meeting, McBride was voted in as council president and Linda Bega was voted in as vice president. Outgoing president Jacqui Hepfer thanked her fellow council members for the pleasure of serving as president this past year. Drive-in history State preparing for legal battle on drug testing Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott believes state employees should be randomly tested for drug use, and Floridas chief legal officer is ready for the anticipated legal challenge to a new law that allows for the testing. Scott signed the drug testing bill (HB 1205, sponsored by Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, RInverness) into law late Monday. The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida responded by saying they expect the law to be struck down as unconstitutional. People do not lose their constitutional rights just because they work for the state of Florida, ACLU of Florida executive director Howard Simon said Tuesday. No one should be surprised if this latest effort ends up in court just as the governors past efforts to impose urine testing on applicants for government benefits and his executive order for state employee testing are now before the courts, said Simon, who stopped short of saying that his group would file a suit. We expect they will make it clear once again that government cannot subject people to suspicion-less searches just because it wants to. Scott, however, said he believes state employees should be subject to the same scrutiny as those in the private sector. The bill cleared both the House and Senate in a vote along party lines in Floridas Republican-dominated Legislature. State employees could be randomly tested every three months under the plan. The random sample, however, cant be more than 10 percent of the agencys workforce and must be computer-generated by an independent third party. The measure, which has an effective date of July 1, also makes it easier to fire a worker after a first confirmed positive test. No extra money was set aside, so department heads have to pay for tests out of existing budgets. Urine tests, the most common, cost from $10-$40 each. Scott, a Republican, previously tried to enforce random drug testing through an executive order, but that was suspended due to a court challenge. Its amazing that the governor and the Legislature would move ahead with a law that so clearly violates the Constitutional protections against invasive government searches without suspicion especially while a legal challenge on precisely the same issue is pending in the federal court, Simon said.

Associated PressSARASOTA Jury selection was under way Tuesday for the trial of a Florida teen accused of shooting dead two British tourists who may have wandered into the wrong neighborhood after a night of drinking. Shawn Tyson, who turned 17 on Monday, is facing two first-degree murder charges. Authorities say Tyson shot and killed British tourists James Kouzaris and James Cooper last April 16th. Tyson, who has been held in the Sarasota County Jail without bail, faces life in prison if convicted. He was arrested a day after Kouzaris and Coopers bodies were found in The Courts, a housing development where Tyson lived. The slayings drew the attention of U.K. media and one British tabloid ran the headline: Gunned Down in the Ghetto. Sarasota Police have never said why Kouzaris and Cooper were in the housing project in the early morning hours of April 16. Kouzaris, who was 24 and Cooper, 25, had spent the night of April 15 having dinner with Coopers parents and then bar-hopping in downtown Sarasota. The two young men were staying in Longboat Key, some 12 miles from Sarasotas downtown, in a condo shared with Coopers parents. Surveillance cameras captured images of the men talking to a group of women and drinking. Authorities later found that Kouzaris blood alcohol level was .243 percent and Coopers was .214 percent well past Floridas legal limit for intoxication, which is .08 percent. Despite Coopers mothers advice that the men take a cab back to the beach condo, they walked away from the downtown Sarasota area and into the heart of the citys housing projects.

SIDIBE Staff WriterFLORAL CITY The owner of Boondocks General Store in Floral City is accused of sexual battery on a 15-year-old girl and providing her with drugs, alcohol and cigarettes in exchange for other sexual favors, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Sanjaykumar Ramanbhai Patez, 42, of 37210 Grassy Hill Lane, Dade City, was arrested Monday on charges of lewd and lascivious battery, lewd and lascivious molestation, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and sexual battery on a minor without her consent. Sometime last month, Patez reportedly forced the girl to have sex with him in his stores utility room. The girl told investigators Patez smelled of booze during the assault and she fought him off and tried to break out of his bear hug when he began the attack. The alleged victim also told investigators between November 2011 and February of 2012, she performed inappropriate sex acts in exchange for cigarettes, marijuana, a legal but noxious synthetic cannabis commonly called K2 or Spice, as well as and alcoholic beverages. CCSO began investigating the case after last months alleged assault, and Patez reportedly threatened the girl with death if she ever reported the crime to law enforcement. Investigators said Patez admitted to having sex with the girl and during recent days had been trying to lure her into another encounter. No bond was allowed. Chronicle reporter A.B.

SIDIBE Staff WriterAn alleged Internet-happy sexual predator and a man accused of having sex with two female minors were arraigned Tuesday in Circuit Court Judge Ric Howards court. Steven Eugene Holder Jr., 37, of Homosassa was arrested in a sting in which he thought he was sexually communicating with a 12-year-old girl, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Holder was arrested March 6 on charges of use of Internet service to transmit information harmful to a child and as a sexual predator for failing to register his use of the Internet. He was still in custody. Holder was allegedly identified chatting with a 12-year-old girl from Kansas via the social networking site Facebook. Investigators took over the chat and eventually morphed into conversation about chatting on Yahoo Messenger and webcams. Holders next court date is April 2. Carlos Vazquez, 49, Inverness, is charged with lewd and lascivious battery on a 15-year-old and sexual battery on a person under 18, a first degree felony for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old. The abuse in the second charge has allegedly been going on since the girl was 12 years old. Late last month, the 15-year-old was invited by another juvenile friend to her house to hang out. While there, the two juveniles reportedly were plied with alcohol by Vazquez who said his wife was not home. While the two girls were laying in bed watching television, Vazquez reportedly entered the room and got in bed with them. He allegedly ended up having sex with the 15-year-old who protested his actions. Vazquez is out on bond and his next court date is May 1. Chronicle reporter A.B.

With her knowledge, Barker assumed Campbells Facebook identity as Campbull. Yates said the original Kristy Campbell did not know the details of Barkers exploits as Campbull until recently. Barker, as Kristy Campbull, continued the online relationship with the Citrus County teacher. When the teacher became uncomfortable with the arrangement and sought to break it off, Barker as Campbull responded with threats, Yates said. Once she told Campbull she didnt want to continue the friendship, this person started acting irrationally, Yates said. Yates said Kristy Campbull told the teacher she would make false claims of impropriety with juveniles to her supervisors, and provide the local media with a bogus story. As a result of breaking off the relationship, the suspect did exactly what he said he was going to do, Yates said. Four days after the teacher approached Citrus County sheriffs officers, Kristy Campbull sent emails to the Chronicle and school district personnel alleging an online relationship that began when she was 17. The email said the teacher flew to Colorado and told details of a face-toface meeting. Yates said that never happened. There was never any meeting, she said. That story was fabricated by the suspect. Citrus County Sheriffs detectives found Kristy Campbell in Colorado and then were able to trace Kristy Campbull to Barker in Ohio. Yates said Citrus County detectives spoke by phone with Barker prior to his arrest, but she declined to say whether he admitted or denied the accusations. Yates said Barker is set to return to Citrus County sometime in April for a court appearance. The whole thing was he tried to get her to stay in the relationship, she said, and when she didnt, he tried to ruin her life.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicle online.com.

The following day she contacted a friend via text messaging to check on the kids while she was at work in particular to check on her sons condition. The friend reportedly was horrified by what she saw and immediately took the child the hospital. The pair was later arrested on March 4. Now the grandmother has all three of Alexzas children living with her and she has been busy transporting the boy back and forth to the hospital in Gainesville. I hope this (court case) will be a wake-up call for both of them. What he did to that boy was heartless, and if (only) they could hear him ask everyday when I am cleaning his injuries, Why me, Mom?

State BRIEF From wire reports Florida Senate panel delays redistricting vote Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Senators got their first official look at the political implications of redistricting plans past and present on Tuesday, but delayed committee action on a proposal to fix flaws in a map that was kicked back by the Florida Supreme Court. The Reapportionment Committee is scheduled to vote Wednesday on a revised plan for the 40-district Senate after spending nearly eight hours discussing a proposal offered by its chairman and others that fell by the wayside. Chairman Don Gaetz map redraws eight districts the Supreme Court found in violation of new constitutional antigerrymandering standards, but a ripple effect from those revisions would wind up changing 16 other districts as well. The remaining hangup is over how to comply with the high courts order to revise the Senates district numbering system. The justices ruled the scheme passed by the Republicancontrolled Legislature unconstitutionally favored Senate incumbents by making sure as many as possible could serve up to 10 or 11 years before being forced out by term limits instead of the usual eight. Gaetz, R-Niceville, wants to randomly select district numbers to avoid the implication of favoritism, but some senators dont want to leave it to chance, some saying theyd rather have the Senate pick numbers in sequence. If we do that theres going to be an aroma about our proposal that will then implicate the rest of the proposal, Gaetz warned. He said a random selection system also could be sequential but didnt offer any specifics. Im more concerned to make sure that we can look the Supreme Court and the people of Florida in the eye and say Nobody put the fix in, Gaetz said. For months, the Senate studiously avoided discussion of the political data, but the Supreme Courts 52 opinion said that was a mistake. The justices, who unanimously approved the 120-district House map, noted that chamber conducted functional analyses of minority districts using voter registration figures and past election results. Besides prohibiting favoritism toward incumbents and political parties, the Fair Districts standards require lawmakers to preserve the ability of racial and language minorities to elect candidates of their choice. The same analyses used to show whether a map complies with that requirement offer partisan insights. Republicans currently have a 28-12 majority in the Senate although Democrats have a slight edge in voter registration statewide. 2012 SESSION
L INDSEY T ANNER AP Medical WriterCHICAGO Few people want to be wide awake during their colonoscopy exams, but new research suggests too many are getting extra sedation treatment, costing as much as $1 billion yearly in potentially needless services. Use of anesthesiologists to monitor sedation during colonoscopies and other digestive imaging tests has more than doubled in recent years, and theyre used most often for low-risk patients who typically dont need the extra help, the study authors said. These services are not harming patients. Theyre basically giving them a luxury that is not strictly necessary, said the studys lead author, Dr. Soeren Mattke, a senior Rand Corp. scientist. That matters at a time when policymakers are trying to rein in rising medical costs, the authors said. Patients usually are briefly sedated for a colonoscopy, and some kinds of sedation require monitoring by specialists. That includes use of propofol, a powerful intravenous drug that can cause deep sedation and was implicated in pop star Michael Jacksons death. Anesthesiologist-monitored sedation, with or without propofol, is recommended for high-risk patients, including those who are old or sick or previously had complications with anesthesia. While propofol sedation is also sometimes given to low-risk colonoscopy patients, the study authors suggest thats often unnecessary. Drugs usually recommended for these patients typically cause lighter sedation, though most patients dont remember anything about the exams afterward. These drugs can be given by the doctor doing the exam, but the study suggests theyre often also being given and monitored by anesthesiologists. The researchers analyzed insurance claims data on more than 6 million U.S. adults who had the colon exams or imaging scopes of the upper digestive tract between 2003 and 2009. The tests are done to screen for colon cancer, acid reflux and other illnesses. When the study began, 14 percent of these tests included an anesthesiologist. That climbed to more than 30 percent by 2009. The portion of this extra sedation treatment given to low-risk commercially insured patients remained constant during the study and fell slightly in Medicare fee-forservice patients. But the study authors said far too many low-risk patients are still getting this treatment more than three-fourths of the commercially insured patients and two-thirds of the Medicare group. The extra treatment added an average of about $500 to an insured patients bill in 2009, and $150 to a Medicare bill. In 2009, about 3 million colonoscopies and other digestive scoping tests were done in low-risk patients but included anesthesia services, amounting to $1 billion in potentially unnecessary costs, the study authors estimated. The study appears in Wednesdays Journal of the American Medical Association. While some insurance policies exclude coverage for anesthesiologist monitoring for low-risk patients undergoing these exams, insurers sometimes pay for it, Mattke said. Because of doctor backlash, Aetna, one of the nations largest health insurers, has indefinitely delayed a policy it tried to implement in 2008 that would have excluded this coverage for low-risk patients, said Dr. James Cross, Aetnas chief of national medical policy and operations. Reasons for the frequent use of anesthesiologists during these exams vary. Sometimes low-risk patients undergoing colonoscopies and other digestive scoping exams request propofol because they want to be totally unconscious and have heard that it wears off quickly and doesnt cause grogginess, unlike other sedatives, said Dr. John Vargo, a spokesman for the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and a digestive specialist at the Cleveland Clinic. Propofol requires careful monitoring because it has a narrow window between providing deep sedation and making people stop breathing, and unlike other sedatives, theres no rescue drug to reverse its effects, said Dr. Norm Cohen, vice president for professional affairs at the American Society of Anesthesiologists. The rising use of anesthesiologists may partly reflect more obese patients and users of Vicodin and other opiate-based prescription drugs, Cohen said. Both may be missed under coding used in the study, but they should be considered at risk because sleep apnea that often accompanies obesity makes sedation trickier, and users of opiate painkillers often require higher than usual doses of sedation, he said.

Associated PressSEATTLE When Justin Bassett interviewed for a new job, he expected the usual questions about experience and references. So he was astonished when the interviewer asked for something else: his Facebook username and password. Bassett, a New York City statistician, had just finished answering a few character questions when the interviewer turned to her computer to search for his Facebook page. But she couldnt see his private profile. She turned back and asked him to hand over his login information. Bassett refused and withdrew his application, saying he didnt want to work for a company that would seek such personal information. But as the job market steadily improves, other job candidates are confronting the same question from prospective employers, and some of them cannot afford to say no. In their efforts to vet applicants, some companies and government agencies are going beyond merely glancing at a persons social networking profiles and instead asking to log in as the user to have a look around. Its akin to requiring someones house keys, said Orin Kerr, a George Washington University law professor and former federal prosecutor who calls it an egregious privacy violation. Questions have been raised about the legality of the practice, which is also the focus of proposed legislation in Illinois and Maryland that would forbid public agencies from asking for access to social networks. Since the rise of social networking, it has become common for managers to review publically available Facebook profiles, Twitter accounts and other sites to learn more about job candidates. But many users, especially on Facebook, have their profiles set to private, making them available only to selected people or certain networks. Companies that dont ask for passwords have taken other steps such as asking applicants to friend human resource managers or to log in to a company computer during an interview. Once employed, some workers have been required to sign non-disparagement agreements that ban them from talking negatively about an employer on social media. Asking for a candidates password is more prevalent among public agencies, especially those seeking to fill law enforcement positions such as police officers or 911 dispatchers. Back in 2010, Robert Collins was returning to his job as a correctional officer at the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services after taking a leave following his mothers death. During a reinstatement interview, he was asked for his login and password, purportedly so the agency could check for any gang affiliations. He was stunned by the request but complied. I needed my job to feed my family. I had to, he recalled. After the ACLU complained about the practice, the agency amended its policy, asking instead for job applicants to log in during interviews. To me, thats still invasive. I can appreciate the desire to learn more about the applicant, but its still a violation of peoples personal privacy, said Collins, whose case inspired Marylands legislation. Facebook declined to comment except for issuing a brief statement declaring that the site forbids anyone from soliciting the login information or accessing an account belonging to someone else. Giving out Facebook login information also violates the social networks terms of service. But those terms have questionable legal weight, and experts say the legality of asking for such information remains murky. The Department of Justice regards it as a federal crime to enter a social networking site in violation of the terms of service, but during recent congressional testimony, the agency said such violations would not be prosecuted. Lori Andrews, a law professor at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law specializing in Internet privacy, is concerned about the pressure placed on applicants, even if they voluntarily provide access to social sites. Volunteering is coercion if you need a job, Andrews said. Twitter did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

D AVIDC RARY AP National WriterNEW YORK The secrecy that long shrouded adoption has given way to openness, and only about 5 percent of infant adoptions in the U.S. now take place without some ongoing relationship between birth parent and adoptive family, according to a comprehensive new report. Based on a survey of 100 adoption agencies, the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute said in a report Wednesday that the new norm is for birthparents considering adoption to meet with prospective adoptive parents and pick the new family for their baby. Of the roughly 14,000 to 18,000 infant adoptions each year, about 55 percent are fully open, with the parties agreeing to ongoing contact that includes the child, the report said. About 40 percent are mediated adoptions in which the adoption agency facilitates periodic exchanges of pictures and letters, but there is typically no direct contact among the parties. The degree of openness should be tailored to the preferences of the individual participants, said Chuck Johnson of the National Council for Adoption, which represents about 60 agencies. It points to the huge importance of the right people being matched with each other. The Donaldson institute, citing its own research and numerous other studies, said most participants find open adoptions a positive experience. In general, the report said, adoptive families are more satisfied with the adoption process, birthmothers experience less regret and worry, and the adopted children benefit by having access to their birth relatives, as well as to their family and medical histories. The good news is that adoption in our country is traveling a road toward greater openness and honesty, said Adam Pertman, the institutes executive director. But this new reality also brings challenges, and there are still widespread myths and misconceptions about open adoption. The challenges, according to Pertman and other adoption experts, often involve mismatched expectations as to the degree of post-adoption contact. The Donaldson report recommends counseling and training for all the adults involved, as well as postadoption services to help them and their children work through any problems that arise. The president of one of the largest U.S. adoption agencies, Bill Blacquiere of Bethany Christian Services, said his staff encourages expectant birthmothers to meet with the prospective adoptive family to discuss the array of options for an open adoption. As much as possible, we allow the parties to design that themselves, Blacquiere said. We mediate to make sure both parties are getting what they need. The post-adoption relationship may start out warily, then become more comfortable as time passes, but Blacquiere said each party should keep the others expectations in mind even as circumstances change. For adoptive families, they need to make sure they live up to their commitments, and not try to go back on their initial agreement, he said. On the birthparent side, they need to remember that this isnt co-parenting part of their role has to be blessing the new home that their child has. One common pattern, according to adoption agency officials, is that the birthparent initially wants more frequent contact with the child than the adoptive family prefers, followed by a gradual shift. When the children get older, its often the adoptive families wanting more contact, and the birthparents may have moved on in their lives and at that point are interested in less, said David Nish, director of adoption programs for New York-based Spence-Chapin Adoption Services. Nish said Spence-Chapin espouses the principle of self-determination in working with birthmothers on their hopes for post-adoption arrangements. But he said the agency wont work with adoptive parents who insist on having no contact with the birthmother. We try to educate them, he said. If theyre really set on it being closed, we tell them we dont do closed adoptions. For Dawne Era, a psychotherapist from Warwick, R.I., the decision to embrace an open adoption evolved step by step 23 years ago when she and her husband decided to adopt after unsuccessful attempts to conceive on their own. They made contact with a pregnant 18-year-old from Nebraska whod decided to place her baby up for adoption, then got to know her as the young woman spent her pregnancy in nearby Boston. After the birth and adoption of a baby boy named Grady, the birthmother and the adoptive parents agreed to remain in contact. It was an informal pact, yet it led a mutually satisfying relationship that has continued throughout Gradys life occasional phone conversations, a handful of faceto-face visits and, more recently, ongoing contact via Facebook between Grady and his birthmother and his younger half-sister. For Era, there was a stressful moment when she and her husband got divorced while Grady was a toddler, and she had to inform the birthmother. That was very difficult, Era said. We had promised to take Grady in and raise him in a twoparent family. I thought she would be very disappointed in me, but she took it well. Overall, said Era, the open adoption has been very positive for all of us. A8 W EDNESDAY, M ARCH 21, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE N ATION 659 N.

Plan will wrestle deficit to manageable size Associated PressWASHINGTON Conservative House Republicans on Tuesday set up what appears to be a potential re-run of last years turbulent domestic policy fight with President Barack Obama, putting forward an election-year budget manifesto that would blend steep social program cuts with reduced tax rates. The GOP plan released by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan would, if enacted into law, wrestle the deficit to a manageable size in short order, but only by cutting Medicaid, food stamps, Pell Grants and a host of other programs that Obama has promised to protect. To deal with the influx of retiring Baby Boomers, the GOP budget reprises a controversial approach to overhauling Medicare that would switch the program for those under 55 today from a traditional fee for service framework in which the government pays doctor and hospital bills to a voucherlike premium support approach in which the government subsidizes purchases of health insurance. Republicans say the new approach forces competition upon a wasteful health care system, lowering cost increases and giving seniors more options. But Democratic opponents of the idea say the new system designed by Ryan and liberal Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon cuts costs too steeply and would provide the elderly with a steadily shrinking menu of options and higher out-of-pocket costs. Starting in 10 years, the plan also calls for gradually raising the Medicare retirement age from 65 to 67. If you want to save Medicare and keep it from going bankrupt, you must reform the program, and thats what we intend to do, countered Ryan, R-Wis. Even as Ryan was describing his plan to reporters, it became election-year fodder for both parties. The House budget once again fails the test of balance, fairness, and shared responsibility, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said in a written statement, charging that the GOP proposal would dole out tax cuts to rich while protecting tax breaks for oil companies and hedge fund managers. Whats worse is that all of these tax breaks would be paid for by undermining Medicare and the very things we need to grow our economy and the middle class things like education, basic research, and new sources of energy, Pfeiffer said. This years GOP measure would produce deficit estimates that are significantly lower than a comparable measure passed by the House a year ago, claiming deficit cuts totaling $3.3 trillion spending cuts of $5.3 trillion tempered by $2 trillion in lower taxes below Obama over the coming decade. The deficit in 2015, for example, would drop to about $300 billion from $1.2 trillion for the current budget year. Last years GOP draft called for a 2015 deficit more than $100 billion higher. The measure would cut spending from $3.6 trillion this year to the $3.5 trillion range in 2013 and freeze it at that level for two more years. The GOP plan doesnt have a chance of passing into law this year but stands in sharp contrast to the budget released by Obama last month, which relied on tax increases on the wealthy but mostly left alone key benefit programs like Medicare. The resulting political battle is sure to spill beyond the Capital Beltway into the presidential race and contests for control of the House and Senate this fall. The president and his party are ignoring this problem, and if we have a debt crisis the people who are getting hurt first and the worst are the poor and the elderly, Ryan said Tuesday. We are sharpening the contrast between the path we are proposing and the path of debt and decline that the president has placed us upon. The Budget panel is slated to debate and vote on the measure Wednesday in hopes of a vote by the full House next week. The Senate has no plans to debate a budget and will instead rely on last summers bipartisan budget and debt pact to govern this years round of spending bills. The annual budget debate in Congress plays out on an arcane battlefield of numbers and assumptions, often difficult to understand even by Capitol Hill veterans. Basically, however, the socalled budget resolution sets broad parameters for followup legislation. Sometimes that is just a round of agency budget bills; other times lawmakers take on taxes and benefit programs like Medicare, whose budgets otherwise run on autopilot. The lower deficit figures build on cuts to annual agency budgets imposed last year, and rely on new savings comeing from benefit programs outside Social Security and the costly Medicare and Medicaid health care programs for the elderly and the poor. Almost half of Ryans spending cuts come from $2.5 trillion in cuts to federal health care programs including repeal of Obamas signature health care law over the coming decade. This year, under pressure from conservatives to cut even more, Ryan doubled down on cuts to food stamps, student loans, welfare, farm subsidies and other programs whose budgets now mostly run on autopilot. A cut of $33 billion over 10 years to farm subsidies are larger than a bipartisan plan hatched last year and will be difficult for farm state lawmakers to choke down. On taxes, the measure calls for eliminating a host of tax deductions and credits in order to produce a far simpler income tax code with just two rates for individuals: 10 percent and 25 percent.

Paul Ryan, R-Wis., center, holds up a copy of his budget plan, entitled The Path to Prosperity, Tuesday during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. Syrian rebels outgunned Troops struggle for supplies Associated PressGORENTAS, Turkey Syrian rebel commander Ahmad Mihbzt and his ragtag fighters grabbed their aging rifles to fight Syrian troops advancing on their village, but soon fled under a rain of exploding artillery shells. We will fight until our last drop of blood, Mihbzt declared a week later in this village across the Turkish border. We just withdrew because we ran out of ammunition. Like Mihbzts men, rebels across Syria fighting to topple President Bashar Assad lack the weapons that can pose a serious challenge to the regimes large, professional army. Some rebel units have more fighters than guns, forcing them to take turns fighting. Because of ammunition shortages, some fire automatic rifles one shot at a time, counting each bullet. Rebel leaders and antiregime activists say rising gun prices and more tightly controlled borders are making it harder for them to acquire arms and smuggle them into Syria. This could tip the already unbalanced military equation of Syrias year-old uprising further in the regimes favor. The opposition has suffered a series of military setbacks as regime forces have repeatedly routed them in their strongholds, most recently the eastern city of Deir al-Zour on Tuesday. The weapons shortage has grown so acute that the oppositions disorganized leadership say only military aid can stop Assads forces. Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Libya have spoken positively of the idea, but no country is known to be arming the rebels.

Associated PressStocks closed lower Tuesday for only the second time in two weeks after two reports suggested an economic slowdown in China, where blistering growth over the past three years has helped sustain the global economic recovery. Home prices dropped in 45 Chinese cities last month, a result of government policies designed to reduce property speculation. And BHP Billiton, a mining company, predicted China will not use much more iron ore in 2020 than it does today. In the United States, stocks recovered some of their early loss but still closed lower. The Dow Jones industrial average declined 68.94 points to 13,170.19. It had been down as much as 116 points. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed down 4.23 points at 1,405.52. The Nasdaq composite index dropped 4.17 points to 3,074.15. Brian Gendreau, a market strategist at the brokerage Cetera Financial Group, said traders were concerned about slower growth in India and Brazil as well. That could rein in a rally that has driven the S&P up almost 12 percent this year. If there were skeptics out there that the market might have gotten a little ahead of itself, this was all the news they needed, Gendreau said. Mining companies, which rely on rising demand from the developing world, plunged. Peabody Energy fell 5.4 percent, Cliffs Natural Resources 2.4 percent and U.S. Steel 0.9 percent. Energy stocks were the worst-performing group in the S&P 500. Caterpillar, the maker of heavy equipment, led the Dow lower and slid 2.6 percent after it said global sales are growing more slowly. Bank of America, by far the most active stock in the Dow, led the average with a 2.9 percent gain. Besides the report on home prices and the prediction of weaker demand for iron ore, which is used to make steel, China raised the price of gasoline for the second time in two months. That could hurt demand for fuel. Chinas economy grew at an annual rate of 8.9 percent in the past three months of 2011, but the government, which is worried the economy will overheat, has set a growth target of 7.5 percent this year. Commodity prices fell broadly, because of concerns about Chinese demand. Copper fell almost 2 percent. Platinum and palladium also fell. Gold fell more than $20 an ounce to $1,647 and is down 8 percent this month. The price of oil dropped $2.48 to $105.61 in New York trading. In addition to the worry about China, oil fell because Saudi Arabia promised to fulfill any shortfalls in global supply because of the standoff over Irans nuclear program. Yields for U.S. government debt fell slightly after rising for nine consecutive days. The yield on the 10year Treasury note dropped to 2.33 percent, from 2.36 late Monday, but had recovered to 2.36 percent later Tuesday. The dollar rose against the euro. Traders tend to buy what they consider safer currencies, such as the dollar, when they are worried about the global economy. The euro fell to $1.322 from $1.324 late Monday.

They requested 5 percent more permits in February to build single-family homes and apartments in the coming months. That increased the annual rate to a seasonally adjusted 717,000 permits, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. While thats still half the rate considered healthy by most economists, its the highest since October 2008. Apples next hot release: The dividend check NEW YORK Apple made computers sexy. Can it do the same for the musty old dividend? Issuing a regular payment to your stockholders after years of amassing cash used to be an admission your company has run out of creative ideas to grow profits. The quarterly check for a buck or two was more associated with staid utilities than sleek tech companies. It wasnt sexy, said John Buckingham, chief investment officer at Al Frank Asset Management. Now the cool guy is doing it. Apple said Monday it would begin paying a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share starting this summer after years of resisting the idea. Its late former CEO, Steve Jobs, always thought the company could make better use of its cash. But the hoard of cash and securities grew so large $97.6 billion Apple had no use for it.Nissan reviving Datsun brand for emerging marketsTOKYO Nissan is bringing back the Datsun three decades after shelving the brand that helped build its U.S. business. This time, Nissan hopes the name synonymous with affordable and reliable small cars will power its growth in emerging markets. Nissan Motor Co. Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn made the announcement Tuesday while in Indonesia, one of three markets besides India and Russia where the Datsun will go on sale from 2014. From wire reports
O PINION Page A12 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2012 GOP does good?A fellow sounded off in response to a brainwashed Democrat and identified several things Republicans have done since Eisenhower. While Ike did many things, he didnt exactly design and build the interstate system which bears his name. But he did get it done. Of course, he was a RINO, and taxes during his administration were near 90 percent for the elite plutocracy. They are now a bit under 35 percent except for the super rich, who pay 15 percent. So dont count on a Republican president to repair and improve our infrastructure. Nixon got us out of the Vietnam War? Seems to me he resigned to avoid impeachment in 1974. Ford was president (with no support from Congress) when the North Vietnamese overran the south in 1975. This is the first Ive heard about the war being intended to make Lady Bird rich through her helicopter company. I could mention some defense procurement scandals of the time, like the Flying Edsel, but why dilute pure Republican blue smoke with historical facts? As for Ronald Reagan and a Republican Congress balancing the budget for four years for the first time since the Great Depression: thats an interesting story, but it clearly belongs on the fiction shelf. Reagan did win the Cold War, which in my opinion makes him a great president. But he did it by outspending the Russians because the U.S. had a better credit rating than Russia. He put people to work with his stimulus program, which was called the Department of Defense. But he did not balance the budget. He did it with borrowed money. The president who, with a Republican Congress, reduced welfare and the national debt for four years was Bill Clinton. But they also raised taxes. George W. Bush lowered them and rapidly went into debt on his way to launching the Great Depression of the 21st century. If it had been up to the Republicans, this country probably wouldnt have come out of the last depression. Pat Condray Ozello Enforcement is good The complaint made by C. Carlis Harman against tickets for drivers who wont wear seat belts is what is really bad for the community. Those of us who obey the laws of our state appreciate the troopers of the Florida Highway Patrol for their tireless effort to protect us from angry old people like Mr. Harman. He states in his guest column how he feels about law enforcement on our highways. He considers it a trap, because he is being asked to comply with the same laws the rest of us have no problem with. I feel law enforcement of seat belts, speeding and every other law for highway safety is good for our community.Nora Cloud Homosassa O n March 14, the Romney campaigns political director, Rich Beeson, sent out a message touting Mitt Romneys recent delegate pickups. Yes, Rick Santorum had won Alabama, Mississippi and Kansas, Beeson said, but Governor Romneys wins over the same period in Wyoming, the Northern Marianas, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Hawaii and American Samoa have helped expand his delegate lead, pushing him closer to the nomination. Indeed, in early March, it was Romneys wins in the island territories Marianas, Guam, Samoa, Virgin Islands that gave Romney the edge in delegates. And then, on March 18, Romney won the primary in Puerto Rico. Its possible if Romney finally reaches the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination, his delegate margin of victory will have come from the islands. Which leads to the question: Why are places that are not states, whose residents cannot vote for president, and have no electoral votes allowed to play a potentially critical role in selecting the partys nominee? I have no idea at all, a former Republican National Committee official said. I dont know, said a current RNC official. Its not just a Republican thing; the Democratic Party also awards delegates to the islands. And usually a presidential candidate wins by such a large delegate margin that the islands dont make any difference. But maybe not this time. Its not that the islands, or at least most of them, are so big their voices simply must be heard. From an Associated Press account of the March 13 caucuses in American Samoa: About 70 Republicans in the U.S. territory located 2,300 miles south of Hawaii met in caucus Tuesday. The six delegates selected at the meeting and three superdelegates to the Republican National Convention all said they would support Romney. Just by themselves, those nine delegates, selected by a grand total of 70 participating Republicans, accounted for Romneys entire delegate lead over Santorum in the March 13 contests. In the Virgin Islands, it appears Ron Paul actually edged Romney, 112 votes to 101 votes, but because of complex rules of delegate allocation, Romney walked away with seven delegates to Pauls one. In Guam, Romney picked up nine delegates when he won unanimously, with a total of 215 votes. The big prize, at least in the number of votes, was the Northern Marianas, where Romney won another nine delegates on the strength of 740 votes. The Northern Mariana Islands may be far away from the mainland, but one of the great things about our democracy is that every voice has a chance to be heard in selecting a presidential candidate, Romney said in a victory statement. If those results trouble any Republicans, they shouldnt blame Romney. Hes just playing by the party rules. And playing smart, sending his son Matt to campaign in the Northern Marianas and in Guam before the caucuses. The 18-0 delegate pickup in those two places alone eclipsed Romneys delegate margin of victory in Michigan and Ohio combined, where more than 2 million votes were cast. Should the non-voting islands have such power? There really is no purpose to it, said David Norcross, former general counsel and chairman of the RNC rules committee. There is no, in my mind, particularly compelling argument for it. With the exception of American Samoa, people born in the islands are U.S. citizens. But the Constitution gives none of these non-states the right to choose a president. Their situation is comparable to the District of Columbia, whose residents could not vote for president before 1964. It took the 23rd Amendment to change that; no such amendments are in the offing for the island territories. Delegates in the GOP presidential race, however, are controlled by the Republican National Committee. The residents of the islands are U.S. citizens who are active and engaged members of the RNC, a committee spokesman said, and part of the primary process that will produce the next president of the United States. The RNCs statement doesnt explain why the policy is what it is, but of course there are political reasons. For example, theres no doubt the Puerto Rico primary was closely watched by Puerto Ricans in the United States in places like the Interstate 4 corridor in the critical swing state of Florida, which Republicans need to win in November. Island delegates have also played key roles in electing RNC leadership; recent chairman Michael Steele owed his victory to island support. But the presidency? It could be that by the end of this primary season, places like the Marianas and Samoa will be key factors in choosing the next resident of the White House.

Even if your family didnt have the prestigious 32-volume Encyclopedia Britannica in your home housed in its own special book rack, of course you probably knew someone who had it. And maybe you were fortunate enough to spend many wonderful youthful hours lost in the worlds and ideas carefully explained and painstakingly illustrated in the Encyclopedia Britannica. For most of its 244 years, the Encyclopedia Britannica represented the gold standard of reference works. But those learned people who publish it havent been blind and deaf to the march of technology, so they have been preparing for the day when the print version would give way 100 percent to the digital product. That day has arrived. First published in Scotland in 1768, the Encyclopedia Britannica is offering the current edition as its final print product, a collectors item. Order it from www.britannica.com. Its only $1,399. The nostalgia is more about the electronic way of the world than the disappearance of Encyclopedia Britannicas print version. In the old days, an encyclopedia was a buffet, where you could dip in and out to taste an outlandish variety of information in one session. Todays search engines cater to a la carte knowledge acquisition. According to the Pew Research Centers Generations Online 2010 report, using a search engine is the No. 1 use of the Internet across all age categories, including the group aged 73 and older. Ask anyone whether his first inclination when looking something up is to paw through a book or jump online to check. Right, some things are easier on the Internet. But the Internet doesnt give that comforting heft and page feel, and doesnt produce the special smell bibliophiles associate with leatherbound editions. No fear, though. The folks at Britannica are far from giving up in the reference and education game. They know their competition includes Wikipedia, the crowd-sourced online reference whose facts arent always reliable despite improved content administration. That is probably why the Britannica motto of Facts Matter is reinforced by its assurance all information is authoritative and correct. Britannica has more Nobel prize-winning authors than any other encyclopedia. If you havent been to the Britannica website recently, its worth a look from your computer or iPad. The spirit of joy in knowledge is still there, available through an impressive array of products. Much of the information is linkable and free, but, as with the print version, if you want it all you have to pay for it. Some things never change.

Attack on freedom Social slavery has come to America. While England seems to have its social programs somewhat under control and Germany may not be suffering as badly as France, Spain, Italy and Greece, the U.S. leaders continue to labor under the delusion they can and will buy their way to continued and overwhelming control of the American people. Make the rich pay for it (or their fair share), has become the mantra, along with the Government owes it to me. The continued borrowing of money is a deliberate, long-term goal of absolute power and control, in other words, the new slavery for all Americans. Russia has not completely recovered from the collapse of Communism, while Chinas collapse and revolution has barely started. A message for those who believe in things like governments absolute power and control over their subjects with only an illusion of freedom: Try watching a movie like Soylent Green for a glimpse of your future. The U.S. has been under attack since the late 1800s by those who simply cannot abide the personal freedom (and personal responsibility) of the American individual. Earl Ehley Inverness Get back on course In early March 1946, we bombed the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean with atom bombs from one end to the other and moved all the inhabitants to other islands, to return at a later date 60 years later. Just two years ago, some did return to find their island was still contaminated to the extent they had to leave because the radiation levels were still so high, they could not plant or fish. But our scientists have yet to admit the terrible mistake they made when for more than 60 years they told us radiation levels were not high enough to harm us in any way. But they were wrong like many of them are today when it comes to global warming, especially the EPA, because today we have no real proof of global warming, but to save our country we must use all of our God-given resources to get our country back on course. Im not too happy with todays political future but I guess anything is better than what we have today.Gaylord LaGraves Homosassa Coyotes not native I have read Letters to the Editor and Sound Off submissions about the coyotes being here before us, so much I feel it necessary to set the facts straight. Coyotes are not native to Florida. They were brought in by ranchers and turned loose so they could be hunted for sport. They were absolutely not here before us. They run in huge packs, but are clever enough to stay safe from threats such as humans, and are mostly nocturnal; therefore, you may not see them, but they are there. They are particularly numerous in the western Pine Ridge area. I have a very small dog that only goes outside when necessary and is never unsupervised, but even this is not safe. I have looked outside my door in the middle of the night to let my dog go out for two minutes and have found coyotes in my yard twice. More times than I can count, I have heard them howling in the close distance. When they do catch an animal, they go into a feeding frenzy that is disturbing to hear. I wonder how many bleeding hearts calling for the protection of these nuisances have heard that sound. Adding to the dilemma are the feral cats and my inconsiderate neighbors free roaming chickens drawing them toward our home. When you people are finished writing in and calling for the protection and care of unwanted, useless creatures, you can begin complaining again about your tax dollars being wasted and services and entitlement benefits being cut. Maybe we can take money from the orphanages too, because those orphans will grow up to build homes on land inhabited by stray animals. The Holy Bible proclaims man has domain over earth and its animals.

Back home New clue found in Earhart mysteryWASHINGTON A new clue in one of the 20th centurys most enduring mysteries could soon uncover the fate of American aviator Amelia Earhart, who went missing without a trace over the South Pacific 75 years ago, investigators said Tuesday. Enhanced analysis of a photograph taken just months after Earharts Lockheed Electra plane vanished shows what experts think may be the landing gear of the aircraft protruding from the waters off the remote island of Nikumaroro, in what is now the Pacific nation of Kiribati. Armed with that analysis by the State Department, historians, scientists and salvagers from The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery are returning to the island in July in the hope of finding the wreckage of Earharts plane and perhaps even the remains of the pilot and her navigator, Fred Noonan.

French hunt school killer TOULOUSE, France Police searched southern France on Tuesday for an expert gunman suspected of fatally shooting seven people in the head at close range in attacks that may have been motivated by neo-Nazi ties or grudges against minorities. The shooter is suspected of carrying out three deadly attacks: leaving four people dead on Monday at a Jewish school in Toulouse, three of them young children; killing two French paratroopers and seriously wounding another last Thursday in nearby Montauban; and fatally shooting another paratrooper in Toulouse on March 11. All the victims in the school attack were Jewish with dual French-Israeli citizenship, and the paratroopers were of North African or French Caribbean origin. The shots were fired at such close range that the gunfire burned the skin, prosecutor Francois Molins said Tuesday.

One of the strongest to shake Mexico since the deadly 1985 temblor that killed thousands in Mexico City, Tuesdays earthquake sent fear and panic across the region, especially after a less powerful, magnitude5.1 aftershock was felt in the capital and several other aftershocks around the borders of Oaxaca and Guerrero near the epicenter. But hours after the shaking at noon local time, there were still no reports of deaths or serious injury. It was very strong, very substantial, said Campos Benitez, hospital director in Ometepec, about 15 miles from the epicenter. Police radio operator Marcos Marroquin said there were preliminary reports of 60 houses damaged in the municipality but only a report of a broken arm. Guerrero Gov. Angel Aguirre, who is from Ometepec, was headed there to survey the damage. In Mexico City, frightened workers and residents poured into the streets of the capital. Telephone service was down in the city and throughout the area where the quake was felt and some neighborhoods were without power, according to Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, who set up a hotline for people to report damage. About 40 passengers were stranded for a short time on the Mexico City airport air train, but later released. The airport closed for a time but officials said there was no runway damage and they resumed operations. Samantha Rodriguez, a 37-yearold environmental consultant, was evacuated from the 11th floor on the Angel Tower office building. I thought it was going to pass rapidly, but the walls began to thunder and we decided to get out, she said. Mexico City, built on a lakebed, was badly damaged in 1985 when an 8.0 earthquake killed at least 10,000 people. In past years, Guerrero has suffered several severe earthquakes, including a 7.9 in 1957 which killed an estimated 68 people, and a 7.4 in 1995 which left three dead. Tuesdays quake was the strongest shaking felt in the capital since a magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck also in Guerrero in December. Officials said at least three people died in Guerrero, but there were no reports of widespread damage. Illinois primary adds delegates Romney wins state Associated PressSCHAUMBURG, Ill. Front-runner Mitt Romney won the Illinois primary with ease Tuesday night, routing Rick Santorum in yet another industrial state showdown and padding his already-formidable delegate lead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Romney triumphed after benefitting from a crushing advantage in the television advertising wars, and as his chief rival struggled to overcome self-imposed political wounds in the marathon race to pick an opponent to Democratic President Barack Obama. Returns from 19 percent of the states precincts showed Romney gaining 56 percent of the vote compared to 27 percent for Santorum, 9 percent for Ron Paul and 7 percent for Newt Gingrich. Preliminary exit poll results showed Romney preferred by primary goers who said the economy was the top issue in the campaign, and overwhelmingly favored by those who said an ability to defeat President Barack Obama was the quality they most wanted in a nominee. The primary capped a week in which the two campaigns seemed to be moving in opposing directions Romney increasingly focused on the general election battle against Obama while Santorum struggled to escape self-created controversies. Most recently, Santorum backpedaled after saying on Monday that the economy wasnt the main issue of the campaign. Occasionally, you say some things where you wish you had a doover, he said later.

The government vowed not to be scared off from hosting the summit the first in the country in a generation and a chance to prove it is moving toward normalcy after years of war. Bombs struck Shiite pilgrims in the holy city of Karbala, set cars on fire in Kirkuk and targeted security forces and government officials in Baghdad and surrounding cities. Iraqis out shopping or eating at restaurants on the bright spring day fell victim to the onslaught: More than 200 people were wounded in fewer than six hours. Dozens of cars were on fire, said a panicked Saman Majid, who had just arrived at his job at a police station in Kirkuk, 180 miles north of Baghdad, when a car in the parking lot exploded. Thirteen people, most of them police officers, were killed and 59 injured in that attack alone, said Brig. Gen. Sarhad Qadir. It was a scene from hell, where there is only a huge fire and dead people and nothing else, Majid said. The attacks were not entirely unexpected: Officials have warned for weeks that al-Qaida and Sunni sympathizers would try to thwart the League summit by sowing fear about Baghdads stability. Plans for the capital to host the meeting last year were postponed, in part because of concerns about security.

SPORTS BRIEFS From staff reports Associated PressDENVER Peyton Manning stood next to John Elway, holding up a bright orange jersey with the No. 18 on it. Yes, that could take some getting used to. And now if Mannings surgically repaired neck cooperates, these two quarterbacks one in the Hall of Fame, the other headed there one day think they might be taking a similar photo together, only next time theyll be holding a Super Bowl trophy. Manning was introduced as the new quarterback of the Denver Broncos on Tuesday, the four-time MVP taking the spot once held by Elway, who as Broncos vice president engineered the deal to bring the NFLs most soughtafter free agent to town. Its a deal that could also mark the end of Tim Tebows days in Denver a bold move, for sure, but one Elway was more than willing to take. Plan B? he said. I dont have a Plan B. Were going with Plan A. After his photo op with Elway and owner Pat Bowlen, Manning answered many of the questions that have been bouncing around since March 7, when his old team, the Indianapolis Colts, released the quarterback and set in motion one of the most frenetic free-agent pursuits in history. On the neck injury that kept him off the field through 2011: Im not where I want to be. I want to be where I was before I was injured. Theres a lot of work to do to get where we want to be from a health standpoint.

NASCARs chief appellate officer overturned on Tuesday the bulk of the penalties levied against five-time championship winning crew chief Chad Knaus, who still must pay a $100,000 fine because Jimmie Johnsons car failed the opening day inspection of the Daytona 500. Chief appellate officer John Middlebrook overturned the six-race suspensions NASCAR handed down to Knaus and car chief Ron Malec, and ruled both instead will be on probation through May 9. Middlebrook also reinstated the 25 points that Johnson had been docked. The decision moves Johnson to 11th in the Sprint Cup standings heading into Sundays race at California. Its been a tough 30 days, Knaus said. Its not about vindication. Its time to move on. Johnson, who earned his first career victory at California in 2002, was ready to get on with the season. He was told by Knaus via text message about the ruling. Im glad this is over; now its on to Cali, he posted on Twitter. Knaus and Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick have maintained the No. 48 Chevrolet was not illegal when it was presented for inspection Feb. 17 at Daytona. NASCAR used a visual inspection to determine the sheet metal between the roof and the side windows had been illegally modified to give Johnson an aerodynamic advantage. The car was never sent through NASCARs templates, and the team maintained it had not been altered since it was approved in January at NASCARs R&D Center. Hendrick also said he had paperwork showing the car was exactly the same as it was following Johnsons win last April at Talladega. My argument was simply that the car is out in plain view. The car went to the tech center. It was inspected at the race track.

Lecanto boys fall to South Sumter S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO The Lecanto baseball squad continued its struggles at the plate while also running into costly control problems on the mound en route to a 3-1 loss to South Sumter on Tuesday. Raiders (7-5) junior shortstop Clay Simmons scored twice on wild pitches after being hit by a pitch in both the first and seventh innings, and senior center fielder Kyle Vaught added another Raider run in the first off a basesloaded walk. Lecanto (5-7) reached base eight times in the game, but only managed a run in the fourth, when senior right fielder Sheldon Baxter came home on a hard-hit short hop to first by junior third baseman Joey Spell. South Sumter sophomore Garrett Cave struck out eight Panther hitters, walked three, and surrendered two hits in 6 2/3 innings to earn the win before senior Dalton Moss recorded the final out for the save. Panthers junior Scott Stearns yielded just one hit in 2 2/3 innings, but walked five and gave up two earned runs in the first for the loss. Sophomore Levi OSteen struck out three and allowed one hit during the remainder of the game after replacing Stearns in the third. Baxter and senior catcher Gary Levengood accounted for Lecantos only pair of hits, both in the second inning. Both teams were good with the glove: Lecanto committed no errors while South Sumter had just one. Lecanto coach David Logue was most frustrated with his clubs limited Chad Knaus suspension overturned See CHIEF / Page B4 Crystal River Pirates beat Santa Fe 7-0 in Tuesday match J USTIN P LANTE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER It was a clean sweep for the Crystal River girls tennis team Tuesday, as the Pirates notched their second win over district foe Santa Fe 7-0 in the first match back from Spring Break. Even with the sweep, no match came easy. Due to increasing cloud cover, both coaches decided to play pro-sets throughout, just to make sure every match had a chance to finish. The night started with the doubles, as Crystal Rivers Kayla Papp and Ashley Allen battled it out against the Lady Raiders Maggie Bethea and Shelley McMullen. After Papp and Allen took a 4-2 lead, Bethea and McMullen battled back to tie at four. The set would continue to go back and forth until the 15th and 16th games, where Papp and Allen capitalized on the mistakes made by their opponents on their way to a 97 win.

To play the course well, golfers simply have to survive these tough holes. Skyview at Terra Vista has just such a stretch of holes on its back nine. The cluster of holes No. 14 through No. 18 are as demanding as any course has to offer. This column will focus on the first of these holes, the daunting par-5 14th. The No. 1 handicap ranking is well-deserved as this hole demands all the power and precision a golfer can muster. Measuring a stout 543 yards from the back tees, this hole has it all. If not played well, it is very likely a player will have to contend with any or all of the following challenges: water, fairway bunkers, waste areas, trees and deep greenside bunkers. Tee shotThe tee shot is framed by water on the right and a fairway bunker on the left. The best play will be a shot that challenges the bunker on the left, leaving the best angle for a demanding layup. However, if the tee shot is not struck well and pulled slightly, the ball will most likely find the fairway bunker or be forced in a small grouping of trees on the left side of the fairway. Any drive too far to the right will find a slope in the fairway and head toward the rough, making a tough layup even tougher.Approach shotThis tough par 5 is defined by the second shot. After the drive, the golfer is challenged to execute either a career second shot or a well-placed layup. Long hitters may attempt to go for this green in two; however, it requires a high, soft draw from outside of 200 yards, not a shot in too many players bags. Most players attacking this green will find themselves either in one of the two greenside bunkers that protect the right side of the green or playing out of the left rough from well below the putting surface. For those laying up, a waste area guards the entire left side of the fairway with about the first half visible from the fairway. Many players have hit what appears to be a good shot only to watch the ball disappear from view, coming to rest in the waste bunker. The ideal layup will favor the right side of the fairway, leaving the best angle to an elevated green that sits at a right-to-left angle from front to back. Conversely, any shot aimed drifting too far to the right will find another small grouping of trees that guards the right side of the fairway. If the player has done all the right things, the approach to this green is a straightforward shot of no more than 100 to 120 yards. However, as we have shown, the hard part is getting to the proper place to approach the green. Putt shot When a player finally reaches the putting surface, they are well advised to look at the green as a whole. There is a subtle slope that will cause putts from the front of the green to move more right than the player expects and putts from the back of the green will do the opposite, moving left a surprising amount. Overall, the 14th at Skyview at Terra Vista is a great hole and par is a great score. Next month, the column will focus on the next hole in the back nine gauntlet, the 456-yard par-4 15th.Wayne Larsen is the golf professional at Skyview at Terra Vista and can be reached at golf@ citrushills.com.

Because of a lack of a total squad to cover all weight classes, the visiting Wildwood Wildcats became a victim to the Canes, who showed no mercy in their beating by a score of 73-13. We were coming off of spring break and wanted to tune up in preparation for the Citrus County Championship meet, Greene said. In the 119 pound class, the Canes dominated with Raymond Villeuix capturing first with a total lift of 350 pounds and teammate Austin Kelly finishing second with a 330 pound total. The 129 pound class was a similar story as Citrus Tommy Diestler had a total lift of 365 pounds to give him first place while teammate Freddy Quandt grabbed second with a 330 pound total. The 139 pound class gave Canes lifter Dalton Tinsley a chance to shine by capturing first place with a total of 330 pounds and teammate Kendall Murphy taking second with 310 pounds. In the 154 pound class, a glimmer of hope found the Wildcats Harding Meacham finishing second with a total lift of 330 pounds, but Citrus Kody McDow easily controlled first with a great combined lift of 500 pounds. In the 169 pound class, the Wildcats started to show positive gains with Wildwoods Cody Thomas lifting 445 pounds for first place and Citrus Brandon Paul taking second with 410 pounds. That was as far as the Wildcats were going to go this evening. In the 183 pound class, Canes Steve Knowles showed his dominance once again capturing first with a total of 520 pounds and teammate Taylor Jackson grabbed second with a total of 460 pounds. I made my normal lifts tonight as I do in my practice sessions, said Jackson, a Citrus junior. Spring break did mess us up a little, but we were able to get into the weight room to work out. Weightlifting has proven to work very well for Jackson, a two-time wrestling state champion. I do like wrestling more than weightlifting because the competition fights back where the weights do not, Jackson said. In the 199 pound class, Citrus junior Kyle Presnicks superior lifting captured first place with a total of 525 pounds, while teammate Jesse Vineyard nailed second with 430 pounds. (The) Citrus County Championship is Monday (and) this tournament is really important to us, Greene said. I felt we were well prepared to defeat Wildwood, but I wanted to get into the competition mode to prepare for this important event, which means a lot to our team. The 219 pound weight class showed the crowd Citrus lifter Dalton Pollards ability with a first-place win, lifting a total of 570 pounds. Teammate Brandon Clapps total lift was 485 pounds. In the 238 pound weight class, the Canes Thomas Henderson hoisted a total of 535 pounds while teammate Mike Jones came in at 465 pounds for second place. The unlimited class showed the Canes superiority once again with Stevie Smith lifting 575 pounds for first place and Ryan Travers came in at second with a total of 520 pounds. I did not work out all of spring break and while I was trying for 315 pound clean and jerk, I could not get my elbow under the bar so I dropped it, Smith said. I have lifted all three years and I feel next year I will do a lot better. One thing I would like to add is my team gives me a lot of support and they get me fired up to lift, Smith continued. Travers also felt spring break had a negative effect of some of the team especially himself. I was working a lot during spring break and did not have a lot of time to lift and it had its toll on me, Travers said. When I competed against Crystal River, I had a better total that tonight, Travers continued. I do much better when there is a larger crowd and more competition. Travers signed to play football as an offensive right tackle with Webber International University, which is a NAIA school in Lake Wales. Travers lettered his junior and senior year for the Canes football team. Citrus will join Crystal River and Lecanto at the Citrus County Championship on Monday at Crystal River High School.

I think by going piece-bypiece, date-by-date, you could see there was no ill intent by our part. ... Our car was approved. Both Knaus and Hendrick seemed relieved rather than jubilant following Tuesdays ruling. They both said they were stunned a week ago when a three-member panel unanimously upheld all of NASCARs penalties. That, not Middlebrooks ruling, was the most surprising part of the process. Still, both maintained the car never should have been ruled illegal. I was pretty shocked in Daytona when this happened. We go through great, great lengths, and its been years since weve been in trouble. Years, Knaus said. Its unfortunate that the perception is out there that we continue to bend the rules, because we truly dont. what kind of person he is, what an awesome year it was. If Tim Tebow is here next year, Im going to be the best teammate I can be to him. He and I are going to help this team win games. If other opportunities present themselves to him, Im going to wish him the best. On Elways role in leading him to choose Denver over other suitors, the most serious of which were the Titans and 49ers: Im seeing him as the leader of a franchise. I really liked what he had to say. Everyone knows what kind of competitor he is as a player. I can tell hes just as competitive in this new role. That got me excited. And so, the deal was sealed. Manning has a five-year, $96 million contract and plans to retire in Denver. His familiar No. 18 was actually retired a tribute to Denvers first quarterback, Frank Tripucka, who was more than happy to let Manning bring it out of mothballs. The Broncos, meanwhile, have some protection in the way the contract was formulated. Theres no signing bonus. Manning will get $18 million guaranteed for next season, but must pass a physical before each season, starting in 2013, to get paid. I dont consider it much of a risk, knowing Peyton Manning, Elway said. I asked him, Is there any doubt in your mind that you cant get back to the Peyton Manning we know of? And he said, Theres no doubt in my mind. It was 14 years ago that Bowlen stood on the podium in San Diego, lifted the franchises first Super Bowl trophy and proclaimed: This ones for John. But this franchise hasnt been anywhere near what it was since Elway retired a year later with a second title in tow. His return to the front office last year set off a whirlwind of activity that landed the Broncos in the playoffs. But Elway has always been in this to win Super Bowls and hes throwing his hat in with Manning, the 50,000yard passer who redefined the quarterback position through the 2000s, not Tebow who seems most comfortable carrying and not throwing the ball. Tim Tebows a great kid. If I want someone to marry my daughter, its him, Elway said. wasnt as close: Crystal Rivers Nikki Moynihan and Jessica Reynolds walked away with an easier victory over Santa Fes Kim Bell and Aileen Ellis, taking the set 8-2. Papp, who also took in a win in her singles match against Santa Fes Bethea with a score of 8-3, was pleased with the teams performance, but pointed out things to work on after the hard-fought doubles match. In singles, we all played well, Papp said. We came out here, worked hard, played our game and did a great job of finishing up. But in doubles, we really needed to pick it up and work harder. We just werent getting the game going. In other singles action, Crystal Rivers No. 2 singles player Allen battled back from an early deficit to take an 8-5 win over Santa Fes McMullen. At No. 5 singles, the Pirates Veronica Williams also took home a tough win, beating Lady Raiders Heather Borah 8-6. The No. 4 singles contest between Reynolds and Santa Fes Aileen Ellis was probably the most intense match-up of the night, as a tiebreaker had to decide who would walk away the victor. But when the dust settled, it was Reynolds walking away with a tough 9-8 win, with a tie breaker of 7-5. Moynihan took home the last win of the night for the Lady Pirates to make it a clean sweep as she beat Kim Bell 8-6 in No. 3 singles. Despite the win, Moynihan was critical of her performance. Well, my serves were okay, Moynihan said. They really werent the greatest. My forehand was really bad, I was chopping at it the whole time. But at the end there, I started to get more consistent with my shots and getting more focused. Moynihan was, however, happy with the teams focus throughout the match. The team did really well tonight, she said. Even when we got down, we stayed strong and brought ourselves back up.

The Citrus senior slashed a drive into left field in the fourth inning. The ball just eluded the South Sumter left fielder and Aaron McIntyre and Melissa Michaud scored as Parker wound up with a two-run triple. Later, Parker scored on a wild pitch. McIntyre singled and Michaud doubled to set up Parkers triple. Unfortunately for the Canes, it was one of their few highlights in a 19-3 loss to the visiting Raiders in five inning at Vicki Overman Field. Parker was batting 1.000 after Tuesday nights hit. It worked out that way, Parker said. It was an outside pitch. Thats why it went that way. They (South Sumter) were hitting pretty well. Parkers coach appreciated her efforts. That was a big triple for us right there to get a couple of runs, said Citrus High head coach Larry Bishop. We are very impressed with her. They (South Sumter) have a good group of kids. A good hitting team is going to hit the ball. We just have to play defense. We had eight errors, Bishop continued. When you have eight errors, its hard to beat a good-hitting team. Citrus hurler Kelly Abramowich took the pitching loss. South Sumters Kayla Thompson took the pitching triumph. South Sumters Kirsti Merritt was just a single short of hitting for the cycle. She led off the game with a double and belted a two-run home run, both in the first inning. She later added a triple, drove in four runs and scored three for the Raiders. Merritt will play softball next year at the University of Florida. South Sumter, who was batting .340 as a team before the game, had 20 hits while Citrus had just five hits. Sports BRIEFS Colemans pitching performance lifts CanesBehind a complete-game effort from Dylan Coleman, the Citrus baseball team took a 3-1 victory at Brooksville Hernando on Tuesday. Coleman struck out four and allowed a single earned run while scattering six hits and two walks. Offensively, Pat Martin, Mark Pullen and Garrett Wilkinson each had RBI hits for Citrus. Eric Nelson went 1 for 1 with a double, run and a walk while Canes teammate Brooks Brasher was 2 for 3 at the plate with a run scored. Citrus (8-4) is at Crystal River on Thursday.Panthers nip Columbia at CF The Lecanto girls tennis team scored a 4-3 victory over Lake City Columbia at the CF campus in Ocala on Tuesday. All four of the Panthers win came in singles matches. At No. 2, Madison Gamble won 8-2 while at No. 3, Simi Shah took an 8-1 outcome. Adrienne Burnett emerged with an 8-1 triumph at No. 4 while Megan Jervis took an 8-2 decision at No. 5. Lecanto (7-2) host Citrus on Thursday.Panthers boys split matches Monday, TuesdayThe Lecanto boys tennis team went 1-1 over the course of Monday and Tuesday, defeating River Ridge 6-1 before falling to Lake City Columbia 4-3. Sam Alford (No. 3 singles) and Lloyd Justo (No. 4 singles) each won both of their matches for the Panthers. Lecantos Zach Alford (No. 1 singles), Rishi Gurnani (No. 2 singles) and Rio Lumapas (No. 5) each lost against River Ridge before rebounding with wins over Columbia. The Panthers (9-6) travel Thursday to Citrus. From staff reports production with the bat. Were just undisciplined, basically. I know weve got talent there, Logue said. I just get discouraged with these guys swinging at balls and not swinging at strikes. I dont think three runs should ever beat you, Logue added. Weve got to get better. When you score one run against a guy throwing primarily all fastballs, I think the only way to go is up. I havent been too happy all year with our offense. On a better note, Logue noted his defenses strong play as well as the opportunities that are still ahead for the team. The defense was great tonight, he said. I was pleased to see it step up. Weve got to get ready to go against Citrus in the next couple of days, Logue continued. We cant lose any more district games to have a shot at our goal of the No. 1 seed. Lecanto travels to Inverness to take on the Hurricanes at 6:30 p.m. Friday. LECANTO Continued from Page B1

Eric Wellwood scored for the Flyers. Clemmensen was outstanding for the Southeast Division leaders and he outplayed counterpart Ilya Bryzgalov. Bryzgalov is one of the hottest players in the NHL, and was chosen as the NHLs first star for the second straight week. He had 11 saves. Clemmensen put Bryzgalov on notice there will be some competition for the honor this week. He stopped all 11 shots in the first period to set the tone. The Panthers snapped a five-game losing streak to the Flyers. Islanders 5, Maple Leafs 2 TORONTO Matt Moulson scored a power-play goal with just over six minutes remaining, and the New York Islanders beat Toronto, handing the Maple Leafs their eighth straight home loss.

Josh Bailey and David Ullstrom also scored for the Islanders (30-32-11). John Tavares had three assists, and Parenteau added two. Phil Kessel and Matthew Lombardi had goals for Toronto (32-34-8), 4-15-2 since Feb. 7.

Bryan Little scored twice for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec was pulled in the second after allowing five Penguins goals on 24 shots. Devils 1, Senators 0 OTTAWA Ilya Kovalchuk scored his 400th NHL goal, and backup goalie Johan Hedberg made it stand up in the New Jersey Devils victory over the Ottawa Senators. While working the point on the power play, Kovalchuk took a pass from defenseman Marek Zidlicky and fired a slap shot past goalie Ben Bishop with 2:40 left in the second period. The calm Kovalchuk kept his arms down and waited at the blue line for his teammates to come to him for a subdued celebration. Kovalchuk also has 376 assists in 771 NHL regular-season games the first 694 with the Atlanta Thrashers. Subbing for Martin Brodeur, who lost 4-2 at the New York Rangers on Monday, Hedberg made 34 saves for his fourth shutout of the season.

Associated PressNEW YORK It seems like we can never say goodbye, bye, bye to boy bands. A decade after N Sync and the Backstreet Boys dominated the entertainment world, boy bands have returned and are making a comeback. One Direction, the British quintet that placed third on the U.K.s X Factor in 2010, will see its album Up All Night debut high on Billboards Top 200 albums chart this week. The Wanted, another U.K.based quintet, is spending its second week at No. 4 on Billboards Hot 100 singles chart with the jam Glad You Came. Big Time Rush, a four-member boy band that also has a hit Nickelodeon show readying its third season, recently wrapped a sold-out tour at New Yorks Radio City Music Hall, and will embark on a larger U.S. and Canadian trek this summer. And Mindless Behavior, formed by the man who discovered Lady Gaga record executive Vincent Herbert debuted at No. 2 on the R&B charts in late 2010 with its album #1 Girl, and has toured with Janet Jackson and Justin Bieber, among others. Its just exploding, said Ernie D., the creative director and on-air personality for Radio Disney. Its really amazing to see, especially on my end, hearing all the calls from the listeners. ... So that fever is definitely growing for sure. Its reminiscent of a time when N Sync battled the Backstreet Boys as musics top act, selling millions of albums and concert tickets, thanks to the millions of girls who invested time, their parents money and screamed pleas for their favorite boy band. N Sync and the Backstreet Boys, who rose to fame in the 1990s and carried that through the new millennium, were followed by other successful boy bands, such as 98 Degrees, O-Town and Dream Street. Before that, it was New Edition who exploded on the scene in the 1980s, followed by the massive success of New Kids on the Block. And before that, there was the Jackson Five and the Osmonds, and so on. The Jonas Brothers made it big in the mid-2000s with its hit Disney TV series, films and albums. They started to fade years later, though, as the oldest, Kevin, got married, and Joe and Nick launched solo careers. But now, there are various boy bands releasing music simultaneously, helping drive each other to the top of the charts. Its giving us that little competition that makes us want to go further and excel further than we are right now, said 22-year-old Carlos Pena Jr. of Big Time Rush. Its cool to see more boy bands, but us, Mindless Behavior, we want to show the fans what we got, said Mindless Behaviors Prodigy, who is 15. Roc Royal and Princeton both 14 and Ray Ray, 15, round out the group. Big Time Rush recently had its TV film, Big Time Movie, reach over 13.1 million total viewers when it debuted on Nickelodeon two weeks ago. They also released an EP of the same name to accompany the film, which features cover versions of classic Beatles songs. The group members said they werent excited about being coined a boy band when they debuted in late 2009. We hated that term to start with, 21-year-old James Maslow said. Because the term hadnt come back yet, added Kendall Schmidt, 21. We kind of feel like we paved the way for it to come back.

In fact, youll have excellent chances to strengthen your financial and/or material position by building a stronger foundation out of what you have. Take things a step at a time. Aries (March 21-April 19) Dont be surprised if more than one person confides in you without you or them knowing why. Theyll simply feel impelled to tell you things that they wouldnt tell anybody else. Taurus (April 20-May 20) It may not be smart to push for certain things, such as matters that affect your material affairs, if you sense the timing is bad. Listen to what your instincts are telling you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Instead of going with the flow as you normally might do, you are likely to be determined to focus on one specific goal. Itll be for a worthy purpose. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Pay attention and you could learn something important by observing how another conducts him or herself in a development that is similar to one you will soon face. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Being fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time will make you privy to some advance information concerning something profitable that is about to go down. Use it with discretion. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Someone you respect who has counseled you correctly in the past is the same person you should go to again if youre having a problem making another critical decision.

If you wait until youre pushed into it, you may do a rotten job. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Take some time to study and review your financial position. Something that would save or make you more money could come out of a close, meticulous study. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Any favors you do for others arent likely to be repaid immediately.

In The Hunger Games movie out Friday, fans tend to have a strong opinion about whether the storys protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, should be paired with her best friend Gale Hawthorne or her fellow Games contender, Peeta Mellark. In real life, 19-year-old Josh Hutcherson, who plays Mellark, isnt picking sides. Instead he joked hes backing a romance between Katniss, portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence, and her often-inebriated Hunger Games mentor, Haymitch, played by Woody Harrelson. Team Haymitch...Yeah, hes the man, Hutcherson laughed. Woody (Harrelson) just knocks it out of the park (in the movie) so ... Haymitch should win the heart of Katniss. Weirder things have happened. If youre one of the few who dont know the plot of The Hunger Games, kids are forced to enter a lottery where the chosen must compete in a live, televised fight to the death. The story is from a book series by Suzanne Collins who cowrote the screenplay and is one of the films producers. Having Suzanne Collins involved, gave myself as a fan and other fans of the book a sort of confidence to know she wasnt just handing it off and saying you know, OK, do whatever you want with it. I think that having her involved gave a certain sort of security. To prepare for his role, Hutcherson had to bulk up. He stepped up his workouts and changed his diet. He said the training wasnt a problem but the eating wasnt as enjoyable as it may seem. A lot more heavy lifting and a lot more like eating high protein stuff, like very low carbs which is not very fun. I like eating carbs much more than I like eating protein things, he explained. Hutcherson said its a big relief to have the film come out after buildup over each actor cast and hype around every photo that was released. Now hes ready for the fans to see the final product. We can finally give people what theyve been wanting for a long time, he said, and for me, you know, its very satisfying. Im very proud. Team Peeta or Team Gale?

Denise Willis GUEST COLUMN WTI develops global partnership School will work with Saudi college I recently had the opportunity to visit Najran Community College (NCC) in Najran, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. NCC is one of the colleges of Najran University that was established by the royal decree issued by the custodian of the two holy mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, in 2006. The university is governed by the Ministry of Higher Education in Saudi Arabia. Located in the east extension of Najran City, near the Yemen border, the boys section was established in 2002 and the girls section was established in 2003. The college was established to provide educational services for the children of Najran and the surrounding area. The college has three departments: Applied Medical Science, Computer Science and Business Administrative Science, with more than 1,200 students enrolled. The purpose of my visit was to be a member of the accreditation team for the Council on Occupational Educational (COE). Najran was the first college in the region to seek international accreditation. First, I was honored to be selected as a member of the visiting team. Second, my visit, which was done with no expense to the school district, went hand in hand with Superintendent Sandra Sam Himmels global initiative in educating the students of Citrus County. At the college, you could not help but notice that the instructional programs were very structured. The classrooms were well equipped and students were very serious about learning.

The ancient camel had no hump and one of the two species found appeared to stand only about two feet tall, scientists reported in a recently published article in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. University of Florida researcher Aldo Rincon, a doctoral student in geology, discovered the fossils during the canals widening to accommodate hulking new cargo ships that will soon ply the waterway. He and a group of other scientists from Panama, the United States and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute also reported finding fossils of ancient marlins, turtles and horses.

Parental approval Associated PressT he letter recommending Christianne Beasley for admission to Smith College didnt come from the most unbiased of sources. But there was no disputing the writer knew this applicant as well as anyone. Christianne and Smith seem to be a perfect match, wrote Nancy Beasley, four years ago, on behalf of her only daughter, now a Smith senior. She described Christiannes grace and dignity, and explained why she thought the prestigious and diverse Northampton, Mass., womens college was the perfect fit for the girl shed raised. Smith is among a few colleges among them nearby Mt. Holyoke and Holy Cross in Massachusetts, St. Anselm in New Hampshire, and the University of Richmond that invite parents to submit letters on behalf of their children (either as part of the application itself, or in a follow-up invitation after the application is received). At Smith, finalizing this month the 640 or so members of the Class of 2016 from more than 4,300 applications, a little less than half include a parental letter. The college takes pains to emphasize such letters are optional and wont make or break a decision. What do parents tell colleges about their flesh and blood? Rarely anything bad, to be sure (though sadly, it does happen). A fair share burst with predictably over-the-top pride in their childrens virtues, which are dated back to infancy, and in some cases, utero (a few years ago, Smith decided to impose a singlepage limit). But theres a reason Smith has stuck with the process for about 20 years now, despite the extra work, says Smiths director of admission, Deb Shaver. Sometimes parents offer just the kind of color that can bring to life a candidate whose full personality is hidden in a portrait painted only with grades, test scores and traditional recommendation letters from teachers and guidance counselors. You might think they do nothing but brag, Shaver said. But parents really nail their kids. They really get to the essence of what their daughter is about in a way we cant get anywhere else. Its also an acknowledgment that in the backlash in admissions against (admittedly epidemic) helicopter parenting, the pendulum might have swung a little too far. After all, its parents who may have the best view of whats really great about their children. We get to this point and say, You cant be driving the bus, you need to be in the backseat, Shaver said. Its all true, and yet I think parents can provide texture to those applications that cant be found anywhere else. Who knows a kid better than their mother and father? she asked. For Christianne Beasley, a letter from Mom was the perfect closing argument to her case that Smith was the place for her. Some colleges welcome letters of recommendation from mom and dad Associated PressHAGERSTOWN, Md. The last straw for 17-yearold Alton Burke was a note left on his door. The high school dropout picked up the phone and re-enrolled at South Hagerstown High. Burke missed roughly 200 days of class, but Heather Dixon, the student intervention specialist who left the note, never gave up on him. Aggressive efforts to prevent students such as Burke from dropping out contributed to a modest 3.5 percent increase nationally in the high school graduation rate from 2001 to 2009, according to research to be presented Monday at the Grad Nation summit in Washington. The event was organized by the childrens advocacy group Americas Promise Alliance, founded by former Secretary of State Colin Powell. The graduation rate was 75 percent in 2009, meaning 1 in 4 students fails to get a diploma in four years, researchers found. Thats well below the organizations goal of 90 percent by 2020. Researchers found that the number of dropout factories, schools that fail to graduate more than 60 percent of students on time, had dropped by more than 450 between 2002 and 2010, but that 1,550 remain. Big gains are possible if you work hard at it, and if you dont focus on it, youre going to go backward, said Robert Balfanz, a report author and director of the Everyone Graduates Center at the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University. The increase in graduation rates was primarily because of growth in 12 states, with New York and Tennessee showing double digit gains since 2002, according to the research. At the other end, 10 states had declines: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Rhode Island and Utah. So far, only Wisconsin has met the 90 percent benchmark, although Vermont is close. This years report proves struggling schools are not destined to fail, said Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

Denise Willis is director of Withlacoochee Technical Institute. WILLIS Continued from Page C1 Special to the Chronicle Denise Willis, director at Withlacoochee Technical Institute, recently visited a community college in Saudi Arabia as a member of the accreditation team for the Council on Occupational Educational. Sometimes theres that bad connotation of the overbearing parents who feel the need to control their kids decision, she said. In my case, it was the opposite. It was to make sure I had the best application possible and Smith saw the best part of me. For her mom, it was a chance to participate, but also share something she knew nobody else would have seen: the way her daughter lit up when she first visited Smiths campus. You know how they say when you see your wedding dress or your house, you just knew its the one? She just knew it was the one, said Nancy Beasley, of Westbrook, Maine. Nobody else would have known. David Hawkins, director of public policy at the National Association for College Admission Counseling, said there are reasons why very few colleges solicit parental letters. One is sheer logistical burden; most colleges dont have the staff to do more than execute a fairly straightforward admissions formula of grades and test scores. Its no accident that the practice is found only at small liberal arts colleges which take special pride in getting to know their students. And colleges are mainly concerned with evaluating candidates academically. For that, a parental letter offers little credible guidance. But perhaps the biggest worry, which Hawkins shares, is advantaging the advantaged, to use the catch phrase in admissions. The question is whether the practice discourages lower-income applicants from applying, particularly those from non-English speaking families, or places such students at a disadvantage if they disproportionately decline to do so. Asking the parents to contribute an essay to their childrens application may be a barrier for some populations, he said. Shaver doesnt have data, but says shes confident Smiths parental letters span a broad range (Smith, in fact, has a strong record attracting low-income students; 22 percent receive Pell Grants, meaning they come from lowincome families. Thats a higher proportion than at virtually any other highly selective college). Often, its lower-income families who make the most meaningful efforts to participate in the process. One mother submitted a video; her daughter translated. One father drove several hours to campus and walked into the admissions office without an appointment, demanding to see Shaver. He said, I dont know English very well and you asked for this recommendation, so Im going to talk it to you, she recalled. Nanci Tessier, who worked in Smiths admissions office in the mid1990s just after it started the practice, has been a kind of missionary for parental letters, taking the practice with her first to St. Anselm and later to the University of Richmond, a school of about 3,000 undergraduates where shes vice president of enrollment management. Parental letters are often the best window into a students soul, she said. She recalled one letter recounting an applicants response to the death of her father in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Nowhere else in the application had that come up. Most stories and letters are less dramatic. But sometimes even mundane ones can offer something to help a sympathetic admissions officer make a case before the committee. She is honest to a fault (and I mean to a fault), the least pretentious vegetarian and recycler Ive ever encountered, reads one of several letters Richmond provided as examples, with names redacted. The letter went on to recall the girl as a precocious 3-yearold who proclaimed, Dad, I dance to the beat of a different drum. Who exactly are such letters for? Its hard to say. Applicants, of course, get one more way to make an impression in a crowded field. LETTERS Continued from Page C1 too many. The authors said there are proven strategies to tackle the problem, such as getting all students to read at grade level, raising the compulsory school attendance age to 18 and developing early warning systems to help identify students that might be at risk of later dropping out. In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama encouraged states to pass laws to require students to stay in school until they graduate or they turn 18. Its estimated that high school graduates will earn $130,000 more over their lifetimes than dropouts, and that high school graduates will generate more than $200,000 in tax revenues and savings in government expenditures over their lifetime, the report said. How to track high school graduation rates has been a contentious issue for years, with states using different methods to come up with a number. Balfanz cited this as a reason why the report does not include the names of the dropout factories. He said they will be included in a future report once all states are consistently reporting data. States are now required to use the same method to compute graduation rates based on a Bush administration rule issued in 2008. Nevada stood out for its low graduation rate of 56 percent, a decline of more than 15 percent from 2002 to 2009, the largest of any state, the report said. During Nevadas boom years, students dropped out to earn hefty paychecks parking cars, pouring concrete or serving drinks along the Las Vegas Strip.

Scientists believe the camels, Aguascalientia panamaensis and Aguascalientia minuta, may have used the sharp teeth as they chomped on lush foliage and fruit. The find is raising questions about just how long ago the isthmus was created. The discovery of a mammal fossil also could help scientists better understand what happened when present-day North and South America were finally connected. Geologists and paleontologists have essentially been traveling in the footprint of construction workers who are completing a five-year expansion of the Panama Canal. The $5.2 billion project will allow larger, modern container ships and cruise liners to traverse the canal doubling the waterways capacity by 2015. The construction work is providing a unique opportunity for researchers to excavate and preserve fossils buried in sediment that are normally hard to uncover beneath the extensive tropical foliage. Though a relatively small country, Panama carries great scientific importance because it serves as the land bridge connecting North and South America. When that gateway between the continents was created, there was a global sea change: the Pacific and Atlantic oceans were cut off from one another, and a great interchange of animals began, leading some species into extinction and others to adapt. Researchers have long thought the isthmus was created 3.5 million years ago, but now that scientists have discovered a camel species living in the area about 17 million years earlier, that hypothesis is being questioned. Its pretty unusual to find camel remains that age at that place, said John Kricher, a biology professor at Wheaton College in Massachusetts who specializes in tropical ecology and is not affiliated with the project. It certainly is a significant find by any measure. And it rewrites something of mammalian deep time history. Plant species are believed to have spread between continents about 45 million years ago, and some animals such as crocodiles and turtles at about 20 million years ago. Mammals, however, didnt travel over until considerably later between 1.5 and 3 million years ago, scientists estimate. Why they didnt is still somewhat of a mystery.

Creating New WorldsThe Art of Video Games When the first home video games for general use came out 40 years ago, artists didnt have much to work with. They had just a few pixels (PIKS-uhls), or points of light on the computer screen, to paint with. But video game art took off like a rocket, changing almost overnight. Today, game artists mix technology with traditional art forms, including writing, painting, sculpture and music, to create a brand-new type of art. The Smithsonian American Art Museum is the first major museum to look at video games as a form of art. The Mini Page talked with Chris Melissinos, the curator (KHURay-tur), or person in charge, of this exhibit. Early games In the 1970s and early 1980s, there were limits to what video game technology could do. Designers werent able to tell the full stories they may have pictured in their minds. Players used their imagination to fill in the gaps of the story. For example, in Ataris game Combat, two players control tanks, jets and biplanes. Instead of a battlefield, the game uses a plain green screen with rough battle lines and dividers drawn in. Combat does not include a story. Players invent their own story. This is part of the fun. Players bounce ammunition off the walls and dividers. This adds something else to think about. Combat players learn to use strategy to defeat their opponent.Filling in the blanks Designers had to be creative to get around the low technology. For example, in Donkey Kong, there werent enough pixels available for the designer, Shigero Miyamoto, to create a whole face. So he took out one pixel between Marios nose and mouth. Because the background was black, that empty space looked like a black mustache. Mario still has it today. Super Mario Galaxy 2, 2010, Yoshiaki Koizumi, Shigeru Miyamoto, designers; Takeshi Hayakawa, lead programmer; Koichi Hayashida, director; Kenta Motokura, design director. Nintendo of America, Inc.This scene is from Super Mario Galaxy 2. The first Mario Brothers game was called Donkey Kong. In that game, Mario was called Jumpman because his character jumped as he chased the ape, Kong. In that first game, the hero was a carpenter. In later games, Mario is a plumber. In Pitfall! the designer, David Crane, was trying to figure out how to make a human figure run. He made up a story about why the man was running. That led to the first adventure game with a human-like figure.Combat, 1977, Joe Decuir, Larry Wagner, programming and design. 1978 Atari Interactive Inc.

Donkey Kong was the first video game in which a whole story was played out. An ape captures a girl, and the hero, now known as Mario, has to try to rescue her. As Mario chases Donkey Kong from level to level, he has to jump and climb moving platforms or raised stages. This type of game is called a platformer game. Storytelling Today, the technology has become so good that game creators can tell a complete story during the gameplaying. The art is so detailed that it can feel as if the player is in a movie. In video games, unlike in other media such as movies, the player controls part of the story. The creator still controls how the story begins and ends, but the player can take side trips to explore the world where the story takes place. A story in the game The arcade version of Pac-Man was the first game to stop and tell a story between levels of game-playing. These stories between levels are called cut-scenes or in-game movies The player has no control over the story in cut-scenes. It is a story thrown in for fun or background. Pac-Man told the story about Pac-Man and the ghosts chasing each other in three acts. The home version of Pac-Man did not have cut-scenes.

Players can also change the way the story goes in the game. If you read a Harry Potter book, you might ask your friends if they remember a certain part. But with video games, you would ask if they remember a part, and then ask how they handled that part. The answer might be different with each player.Into the future No one knows where art will go next. The next big dreamers and big thinkers might include you. Chris started programming games when he was 9, and he wrote his first game when he was 12. He said: We need kids to keep dreaming big dreams, to think of the next big things. Computers can help them take their ideas and help other people experience them. When youre 12, youre told what to eat and when to go to bed. As a 12-year-old with a computer, I could create anything I wanted. I could build. I could create any world I wanted. I could create any story I wanted. In the real world I was powerless. In games I became powerful. Any power or tools we can give kids to allow them to express themselves, what a gift!Game playing Two of the most popular types of video games are role-playing and sim.

This time last year, pro basketball scouts were raving about Kyrie Irvings potential. Now they are raving about his production. With crossover dribbles, spin moves and long jumpers, the sleek Cleveland Cavaliers guard looks more like an NBA veteran than a 19-year-old rookie. In the first 23 games, Irving averaged 18 points, shot 49.2 percent from the field, dished out 5.1 assists and fearlessly took pressure shots. Thats why the Cavs picked him No. 1 in the overall 2011 draft. \000\000,AST\000SEASON\f\000\PLAYED\000ONLY\000\021\021\000GAMES\000AT\000$UKE\000NIVERSITY\000BECAUSE\000OF\000 an injury.

Special to the ChronicleFriends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park Inc. are giving artists of all ages an opportunity to submit a design or designs for a Wildlife Moment photo display of their favorite animal. The winning works will be displayed in the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State park for years to come. A Wildlife Moment is a display illustrating one of the parks animals with an opening for a visitor to peer through and have their photo taken. For many years, the park had a display of this type featuring a manatee near the Fish Bowl. This was enjoyed by thousands of park visitors, but was recently retired. Friends Board member Vicky Iozzia decided it was time to invite area artists to be creative and come up with designs for three new displays. Submissions should include sketches and descriptions and will be judged on creativity, originality and visual impact. If the Friends committee selects your display concept, you will be notified and asked to complete your Wildlife Moment display. The Friends will provide the materials and can arrange to pick up the finished display if transporting it would be a problem. The winning displays will have a plaque with the artists name. Individual artists, art students and classes may participate. If you are interested in submitting a design or have questions, call Susan Strawbridge at 352-628-5343 or Vicky Iozzia at 352-563-2651. Entry forms are available at the park office. Wildlife Park to host annual Heritage Day Guest COLUMN Wildlife Moment Winning artists will share photo displays Special to the Chronicle Keep Citrus County Beautiful Pride Award for February was presented to the county commissioners and Public Works Department in recognition of their cleanup of a major illegal dump at 1660 N. Nightshade Drive near Crystal River. In cooperation with the Mosquito Control Board, Public Works Department employees cleaned up 277 tons of waste at a cost of more than $26,500 to alleviate a persistent mosquito problem. The project was undertaken by the county because there was no responsible party for the subject property. KCCB President Susie Metcalfe presented the award to Commission Chairman Winn Webb. Commissioners JJ Kenney, Dennis Damato, Joe Meek and Rebecca Bays were also present. Representing county staff were Larry Brock, assistant director Public Works Department, and Ken Frink, assistant county administrator. Other KCCB members attending the presentation included John Quintas, Erin Ray, Casey Stephens, Mike Colbert and Randy Messer. February Pride Award
C6 W EDNESDAY, M ARCH 21, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Football coach Vince Lombardi said, I firmly believe that any mans finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle victorious. One bridge deal should not be that exhausting, but many, especially in no-trump, are battles for suit establishment as we saw yesterday and will see today. How should the play go in three no-trump after West leads the spade six? There are five scenarios. First, East wins with his spade ace and returns the spade jack, covered by the queen and king. South takes the third spade and plays three rounds of diamonds, losing the last of those but taking the rest for an overtrick. Second, West ducks at trick two, giving South the trick he is due and retaining communication with his partner. Then, when East gets in with his diamond trick, a third spade gives West three tricks in that suit to defeat the contract. Third, South does not cover the spade jack at trick two. This saves the contract whenever it can be made. Fourth, East plays his spade jack at trick one. (Since East can anticipate gaining the lead in diamonds, this is not far-fetched, trying to make South burn up his one spade stopper immediately.) If South does win the trick, he will fail. But, fifth, if he works out to duck, he will get home. What a battlefield of possibilities!

Her parents still pay her rent and bills. Im worried because Jodi has been acting out of character. She cheated on her husband with a 59-yearold man. Hes now her new boyfriend and soul mate. Hes creepy. He talks down to her and gropes her in public. She gives him her paycheck and the use of her parents credit cards. Jodi has a daughter from her marriage, and the little girl lives with her father. I work for Child Protective Services and know this dream boyfriend is a sex offender. When we go out as friends, she brings him along, and he says crude, disgusting things to us about our clothes and our bodies. He even tried to take money out of my purse. Jodi thinks this is funny and says I should lighten up. I told her about his history and that she should be cautious with him around her daughter. She became angry and said she never wanted to speak to me again. Im OK with that. Shes not the person I once knew. My job obligates me to report that this man is spending time with a young child, and I have informed his parole officer. But I also think I should advise the little girls father, who has primary custody, and Jodis parents, who have secondary custody. My boss says Ive done my duty by alerting the parole board, and that speaking to the family is a personal choice. My husband says I dont need to crusade to protect every child. Finding out that the creep stays overnight when her daughter is in the house made my skin crawl. Should I tell the family? Not a Crusader Dear Crusader Yes. We doubt Jodis parents will do anything since they already enable their daughter to be irresponsible. But the little girls father will want to do everything he can to protect his child. You cant prevent Jodi from being an idiot about this man, but please dont turn your back on her daughter. Dear Annie : My brief romance with Marie ended many years ago when I left California to attend law school in Michigan. She married someone else and had a family, and so did I. We each divorced years later and, by chance, met up and rekindled our romance. Marie is a wonderful, dynamic woman, and every moment is filled with laughter and love. Our children have accepted us, and Marie encourages me to remain civil with my ex in order to co-parent effectively. Heres my dilemma: When visiting my home, she saw a framed collage of pictures in my entrance hallway, some of which include my ex-wife and me. She calls it a shrine. I see it as pictures on the wall. My youngest son, now 14, likes this picture. Marie gave me an ultimatum, adding, If he likes it so much, put it in his room. I feel she is being unreasonable. I truly love Marie, but now I wonder whether I am trading one controlling partner for a new one. We have nearly broken up over this. Perplexed Dear Perplexed : Its quite presumptuous for a girlfriend to dictate what pictures you can have in your hallway, especially when your son still lives with you and removing the collage would bother him. Unless you have a large portrait of your ex hanging in the living room, its not Maries business. Tread cautiously. Dear Annie : This is for Fed Up, whose brother-in-law helps himself to their food and wine. My mother also does this at everyones home because she thinks its cute. I was fed up, so I removed the tag from a jar of dog treats, and one day Mom walked into my house and ate one without asking. Rest assured, she no longer takes food from my kitchen without permission TexasAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
