F O G City to draft letter about Kings Bay ruling A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER City officials tried to find their footing Monday in the wake of the still fluid decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to designate Kings Bay a manatee refuge or protection zone. The service also announced on March 15 new rules of conduct for waterborne activities, including a reduction of boat speeds in the area called the sport zone from 35 mph to 25 mph. Monday, during the Crystal River City Council meeting, officials grappled with the new rules and a unified response to what Mayor Jim Farley called ridiculous rules. City and county officials have been against the rules when they were proposed in June 2011 and have previously informed the USFWS of their intent to pursue legal avenues should the rules come to fruition. Now that the agency has unveiled its rules, albeit a scaled-back version, city officials are still opposed to the plan. City Manager Andy Houston told council members, the panels window for a response was shutting and they had to act by the next meeting set for April 9. Officials have 30 days from the announcement of the final rules to give the agency a 60-day notice of their intention for litigation, according to City Attorney George Angeliadis. After much deliberation during which every member of the panel vented their opposition to the rules, the council decided to draft another letter of intent of litigation and have it for the next meeting. The panel, however, has not made a decision to sue, but are going to issue the letter to maintain an option in the future. Council member Maureen McNiff suggested the letter option after another panelist, Ron Kitchen, asked attorney Angeliadis a bottom-line question. Will you spend your own money to do this (pursue a suit against USFW)? Angeliadis was equally blunt and thought a lawsuit will be an uphill battle and tough to win against the heft of the federal government. He even suggested maybe the panel could seek the counsel of another attorney with more experience in such matters. But Kitchen said he would be reluctant to go along with any litigation that would end up costing the city oodles of money in an unsuccessful bid. Mayor Farley added officials are obligated to do it because he fears the rules as they stand would be a danger to people using the sport zone. However, when USFWS announced their decision, Cindy Dohner, USFWS Crystal River must notify federal agency of intent to oppose plan See LETTER / Page A5 Hanging around Special to the Chronicle New Hope Methodist Church members Ted Vonderhorst, Eugene Morris, Jimmie Smith, Fran Bissonnett and Ron Taylor recently installed a bell donated by Bay News 9 viewers after they heard the story of someone stealing the churchs bell from its steeple in December. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterFLORAL CITY For decades, Sunday church services didnt start at the historic New Hope Methodist Church on Istachatta Road without someone ringing the steeple bell. Until someone stole it, that is. But thanks to a couple in St. Petersburg who heard about the churchs plight and offered them a bell they had in their garage, the familiar call to worship is sounding once again. On the Sunday before Christmas, one of the church ushers tried to ring the bell, but nothing happened. At first he thought the rope had come off the bell. But as he tugged on it, the rope fell to the floor. Beverly Raynor, who handles church publicity, sent out an email to the other church members. She wrote: Two of our trustees went on the roof to try to reconnect the bell rope, but to their amazement someone had climbed onto the roof, broke into the steeple and removed the bell. She said they couldnt understand why someone would steal a church bell. We are praying for those responsible and looking forward to our bells return, she wrote. Clyde Edwards, one of several regular bell ringers, said he wasnt there the day they discovered it stolen. When he went to investigate he walked around the church and saw all the slats were off on the north side of the belfry, toward the churchs graveyard. He climbed a ladder to get onto the roof to take a look no bell. The original church, one of the oldest in Citrus County, began in 1830, and the first building was erected in 1884. The new church building was built in 1940. Nobody knows much about the bell that was stolen, its size or even what it was made out of. The last man to climb up on the roof to replace the rope died a few years ago. When church members realized the bell was missing, they called the sheriffs office to make a report. Donor offers bell stored in garage to replace stolen church chime See CHIME / Page A2 C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterSix firms will vie next month for the job of conducting a Port Citrus feasibility study. The Citrus County Port Authority Board decided at its Tuesday meeting to listen to proposals from six of the nine respondents to its request for qualifications (RFQ). All six will be heard in public sessions starting at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 17, at the Citrus County Courthouse in Inverness. I think the responses publicly will be very informational for both the port authority and for the general public and its going to answer a lot of questions about the viability and the marketability of this port, said Brad Thorpe, port director and county administrator. It will also help to lead us in the future as to what direction were going to go as far as the ports concerned. Richard Wesch, port attorney and county attorney, explained the method used to rank the applicants. The nine responses to the RFQ were ranked by four people: George Boyle, District 7 multi-modal systems administrator, Florida Department of Transportation; Ken Frink, Citrus County Public Works Director and assistant county administrator; Thorpe; and Wesch. Each followed a set of proposals and a score sheet to evaluate candidates. What were looking for out of todays action is an indication from the authority, first off, as to the number of proposals you would like to hear from, and then set a timeline for those proposals to be presented to you, Wesch said. After discussion, the board decided unanimously to hear proposals from six firms: Gulf Engineers & Consultants, Martin Associates, TransSystems, Vickerman & Associates Inc., Hanson Professional Services and BEA Architects. These are listed by score. Thorpe said Gulf Engineers scored high because of its experience with shallow draft canals, for example. Each firm will be given 30 minutes for a presentation. Question time will follow and time will be taken for deliberation among the board. Dennis Damato, port authority chairman, urged the outcome to be the final choice of the firm to conduct the feasibility study, the grant and matching funds funded investigation into whether and how a seaport within the area of the former Cross Florida Barge Canal could be economically viable. Thorpe pointed out that he might not be able to negotiate successfully with the No. 1-ranked firm and would have to go with No. 2. The negotiations would be taken back to the board for approval. In their deliberations about the six firms, board members would be given the same set of criteria the ranking group used to assist their choices. In addition, the boards decision would be based also on responses to the boards questions. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@ chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Six firms to pitch for chance at Port Citrus study M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Citrus County School Board members are in a position of again going to voters asking to keep what they already have. The school board in April is expected to approve final wording on a November referendum to levy .25-mill for capital or operating programs. The millage is already on the books for capital spending, approved by voters in 2010. That millage, which nets a little more than $2 million and costs the average homeowner about $25, expires at the end of this year. Unlike the county commission, nearly the school districts entire tax rate is set by the state. Anything beyond a certain amount requires voter approval. While board members say the tax levy is not an increase and could be a tax cut for people with smaller taxable property values they say a united message is necessary to convince voters of the need. This time is not going to be the same as last time, board member Pat Deutschman said. Voters in 2010 approved the quarter-mill by more than 60 percent of the vote. Deutschman said the countys economy continues to struggle and she isnt sure voters will continue that commitment. The school board cannot place the measure on the ballot without county commission approval. While commissioners in 2010 approved the ballot referendum, they openly disagreed with it and some incorrectly predicted its defeat. Board member Bill Murray said its up to board members and Superintendent Sandra Sam Himmel to explain to voters the necessity of keeping the millage intact. Thats the selling job we have to do as a school board and superintendent, Murray said. Technically, state law is eliminating the current Board: We need to convince public of need for tax Bill Murray Pat Deutschman See TAX / Page A2 LOCAL NEWS: Knockout Local inventors vie for their chance at financial fame./ Page A3 WILDFIRES: Big blaze At least 23 homes have been destroyed by wildfire near suburbs of Denver./ Page A12 WALL STREET: Stocks down Consumer confidence report leads to shaky day on Wall Street. /Page A9

He called the Chronicle Also, Bay News 9 came out and did a story. Thats how Mike Waters in St. Petersburg heard about it. My wife and I were touched when we heard about it, Waters said. The bell, which came from an old Chicago fire house, had been in our garage. When we saw the story we said, Theres a home for our bell. Church members Gene Morris and Fran Bissonnett rode out there to take a look. Before that, we had gone out to a salvage yard in Ocala, Bissonnett said. They had one that we thought might be ours. They were going to sell it to us for the price they paid for it, but we had to wait for it. Meanwhile, Waters called Raynor. After theChronicle and Bay News 9 stories, the church received a lot of calls with offers of bells, but they were all too small. The bell Waters had in his garage sounded like the right size and it was. As for the Florida State University emblem on the bell, thats a nod to the Waters who are avid FSU and also Tampa Bay Bucs fans. Whenever either football team would win, they would ring the bell. Our neighbors do not miss the bell, Waters said. About two weeks ago, the new bell was installed. The first time it rang, we felt good about it, Raynor said. Its a little larger, and it makes more noise. Now when the bell rings, it quiets everyone down. Before, there was always a lot of chit-chat going on. CHIME Continued from Page A1 quarter-mill levy for capital programs. That means the referendum cannot say the tax rate is being renewed, even though its the same amount now being levied. Board members said that could cause confusion with the public. I really dont care what you tell the public, theyre going to see it as an added tax, Murray said. Board members will discuss in April whether the tax should be set aside specifically for operational costs or capital programs, or a combination of the two.

Entrepreneurs knock out portable design for boxing bag C ATHYK APULKA Staff Writer HOMOSASSA I nventors Eddie Hendrickson and David Lagarino are two boxing enthusiasts who have the Eye of the Tiger, as they say in the boxing ring, as referred to in the popular Rocky movies. They both have a passion for working out, and they love the speed bag, a piece of equipment instrumental in boxing training. Unfortunately, its not always convenient to go to the gym, where their favorite piece of workout gear is located, so they decided to invent a portable speed bag that could be set up in the average doorway, or on a pole or tree. Its called the Universal Speed Bag. Its the same speed bag that a gym would have, Lagarino said. Most people have never tried one because you usually only find them in gyms. He said the bag is transportable and can be attached without drilling holes or causing damage to drywall. The device, which is set up in Hendricksons kitchen, supported Lagarinos whole body weight as he said, it is so strong you can hang from it. It enables the athlete to workout in the privacy of his or her own home or when they travel. It can be adjusted to accommodate various athletes heights and can even be lowered so children can use it. The device is designed so multiple workout bags, a heavy bag or a dexterity bag, can also be attached. Hendrickson demonstrated his skills on the bag as he talked about the patenting process for their invention for which they have applied. Were trying every avenue, Hendrickson said. If we get noticed by the right person or people it would help. The biggest thing about selling a product is getting noticed. The two have entered their invention in Wal-Marts Get on the Shelf contest. The winner will have their product on WalMarts physical store shelves, have a chance to sell their product on Walmart.com and will be introduced to Sponsors WalMart Stores merchandising teams. Bottom line, were just trying to get it out there and get it recognized, Hendrickson said. Hendrickson can be considered a fighter, but not in the boxing sense. He fought thyroid cancer after being diagnosed Dec. 24, 2008. It had already spread to his lymph nodes, and he had 18 of them removed. Hes a survivor. He walks each year with the team that his friends and family assembled called Team Eddie in the Crystal River Relay for Life event dressed as Rocky Balboa, the main character from the movie. During the relay hes walked the whole 18 hours, every time, nonstop, Jackie, his wife, said. A man and his will to survive, Lagarino said quoting the song from the movie. Since 2009 the team has raised about $30,000 for the American Cancer Society, Jackie said. Its not how hard you get hit, Hendrickson said. But how hard you get hit and keep moving forward. The two inventors have high hopes for their invention and are determined to make it a success. They need people to vote for their invention in Wal-Marts contest to help bring it to fruition. Voting for the first round ends April 3. To view a video of the invention or to vote, go to http://geton theshelf.com/product/3861/ Universal-Speed-Bag.

S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterINVERNESS Donna Nichols loves to joke about her husband, Chris, being a hometown celebrity. Like the time when an entire restaurant full of people started clapping and Donna thought people were clapping for a football game on the television, but they were actually clapping for her husband. And when Chris was in rehab after his stroke last year, all he had to do was say what he wanted to eat that day, and it would appear like magic. Its that kind of support that has served as a welcome comfort during the last few years as the Lecanto High School basketball coach has battled numerous health problems. The community has been so great, Donna said. To celebrate his accomplishments, Chris and a few biking friends will be riding this Saturday in the Clean Air Bike Ride. The bike ride benefits the Key Training Center. Its Chris first official bike ride since Jan. 5, 2011, when he suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke and spent more than a month at Shands before being taken to Seven Rivers rehab. The stoke affected Chris left arm, leg and speech, which meant the active Inverness resident could no longer do a number of activities, including his favorite bike riding. However, determined to see their pal back on the trail, friends from the Citrus Cycling Club raised $2,500 to buy Chris a recumbent tricycle, which they presented to him in August on his 54th birthday. Ever since then, Donna said her husband meets up every Sunday with a few of his cycling buddies at the Inverness trailhead of the Withlacoochee State Trail, and they ride to Floral City and back. He also likes to ride around the neighborhood during the week. For an avid biker who could ride between 30 and 50 miles a day and up to 100 on the weekends, it is not where Chris wants to be, but its better than where he was. Donna said Chris friends want him to try to ride all the way to Istachatta and back, even if he has to stop a few times. Chris hopes it is a step toward his ultimate goal to be able to ride on two wheels again. And Donnas confident he will be able to do it one day. Hes our miracle guy, she said. Hes a fighter. Hes determined to get back to where he was. Registration for the ride is $25 for adults; children 12 and younger are $12, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Riders who complete the 100-mile route will receive a special commemorative medallion. There is no mass start, allowing participants to commence their 14-, 28-, 48or 100-mile treks from 7 to 9 a.m. from the Inverness Trailhead on North Apopka Avenue. There are also SAG stops at the trailheads at Ridge Manor, Istachatta and Citrus Springs. Registrations may be made online or on the day of the ride from 7 to 9 a.m. This is a rain-or-shine event hosted by Citrus Road Runners. For more information, visit cleanairride.com.

CMH foundation invites trustees to strategic talks M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Citrus Memorial Health Foundation directors want members of the rival board of trustees to understand the hospitals strategic plan. The foundation board voted Monday night to set a private strategic session and strongly encourage members of the Citrus County Hospital Board to attend. Foundation director Sandy Chadwick said with the uncertainty of a pending appeal on the foundations lawsuit to overturn a state law giving trustees oversight of the hospital, she believed it was time for both boards to know and understand critical elements of the hospitals strategic plan. Chadwick said she would hope trustees would sign confidentiality statements promising not to divulge information from the meeting. But, she said, the lack of signed agreements shouldnt stop the joint meeting from taking place. We will treat them the way we would like to be treated, she said. State law allows public hospital boards to meet in private to discuss strategic plans to protect the hospitals from unfair competition by private hospitals. Without revealing details, Chadwick was especially emphatic that trustees are aware of and have input on one specific part of the plan. She also suggested the boards meet without attorneys present. CMH attorney Clark Stillwell said he supported that, but suggested he attend for the first few minutes to advise board members what they can and cannot discuss in the closed meeting. A law passed last year gives the Citrus County Hospital Board controlling votes on the foundation board of directors, which leases the hospital from the CCHB. The foundation challenged the law and a Leon County judge ruled the law constitutional. That ruling is now on appeal; an appeals court issued a stay pending a May 7 deadline for both sides to issue briefs. Stillwell said he expects both parties to ask for oral arguments, though there is no guarantee the appeals court will allow that before making a ruling. CCHB attorney Bill Grant said Tuesday he also favors both boards meeting without the attorneys present. However, he said, he doesnt think the CCHB has the legal authority to meet in private to discuss strategic planning since it does not hold the license to operate the hospital. Grant said that problem would disappear if the foundation simply added trustees as directors to its board. Grant said he would discuss the situation with Stillwell and hospital attorney Jim Kennedy in hopes of finding a solution.

C11 Child porn trial delayed Staff reportA trial of a man accused of possessing child pornography has been continued until June 4. Prosecutor Rich Buxman said Alan Yermal, who is facing 19 counts, claimed he was having a heart attack. Circuit Judge Ric Howard set a new pretrial date for May 29 and an eventual trial date of June 4. Howard also told Yermal to have a doctors report for the future. A jury had already been impaneled for the trial that was scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday, but had to be released from their duties, according to Buxman. Yermal is a Citrus Springs resident and former senior warden of St. Christophers Anglican Church in Crystal River. Yermal is facing 19 counts of possession of child pornography. The then 49-year-old Yermal was arrested in 2010 after someone affiliated with the church reported to authorities images of child pornography were found on a USB thumb drive at the church. The man reportedly told investigators Yermal had stepped down from keeping the finances of the church in May, the month preceding his arrest, after it was determined he wasnt doing a good job. The man told Citrus County Sheriffs Office personnel he went into Yermals office to search for financial files when he came across the thumb drive in a desk drawer. The man put the thumb drive in his laptop and advised the deputy that an image came up of a prepubescent boy engaged in a sex act with an adult male, the arrest report noted. Trio arrested in burglary case A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterThree men were arrested Tuesday on charges they burglarized an empty apartment complex. Kristopher Ryan Scheible, 23, of West Springfield, Mass.; Anthony Michael Saunders, 20, of Lecanto; and Aaron Patrick Benoit, 23, of Beverly Hills were reportedly surprised by Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputies as they removed fixtures from the complex on Fort Island Trail. According to reports, investigators were told by a witness (a homeless man) that a week earlier he noticed men carrying appliances from the apartment complex. The patrol officer then began keeping an eye on the complex, and as he was going past the area, he noticed several windows were open. The same officer had noticed the windows were shut an hour earlier. Upon further investigation, the officer reportedly called for backup and noticed that a window in one unit was completely removed and that there was a mattress against the front door, but it appeared to be moving. He also noticed the blinds in window on the second floor were also moving. The backup had arrived by that point and they proceeded to call for a K-9 unit. When the officers entered the unit and announced their presence, the suspects reportedly came out of hiding in the upstairs area and surrendered. All three reportedly admitted to burglarizing and removing fixtures and taking them to a recycling center. Scheible, Saunders and Benoit each have a $12,000 bond. Chronice reporter A.B.

Associated PressLAKE ALFRED Authorities say a central Florida woman buried her husbands dead body in their back yard. Polk County sheriffs detectives on Tuesday were trying to sort out how 77year-old Benny Scott came to be buried under an herb garden in the yard. A sheriffs report said Barbara Scotts daughter brought her to Lake Alfred police headquarters Monday to tell officers the story. They dug up the body on Tuesday from a grave 3 to 4 feet deep. So far, Barbara Scott has not been charged. Sheriffs spokeswoman Donna Wood said the cause of death wasnt immediately apparent. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Republican-led Florida Legislature finished its redistricting do-over on Tuesday, sending a revised Senate map back to the state Supreme Court for final action. The justices affirmed the Houses initial 120-district map but kicked back the 40-district Senate plan. If they decide the Senate map again flunks its constitutionality test, they can redraw it themselves. We put this in pencil, said Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Boca Raton. The courts going to put this in ink. The high court ruled the original Senate map violated new Fair Districts anti-gerrymandering standards in the Florida Constitution in part by intentionally favoring incumbents and Republicans. The final vote was 61-47 in the House to close out a scheduled 15-day special redistricting session a day early. The vote was closer than prior redistricting roll calls because 11 Republicans, mostly Cuban-Americans, joined Democrats in opposition to the plan that passed in the Senate last week. GOP opponents argued the Senate map violates a Fair Districts provision in the Florida Constitution that protects minority voting rights. They said census figures easily would support a forth Hispanic district in South Florida, yet the map has only three. Here we are again, having to justify the blatant disregard for the Hispanic population, said Rep. Jeanette Nunez, R-Miami. House Redistricting Chairman Will Weatherford later said he was convinced the Senate map is in line with the Fair Districts standards. We feel pretty strongly none of the districts retrogressed, the Wesley Chapel Republican said. Theres a lot of different ways to draw a compliant map. The House also voted 72-36 to reject an alternate plan proposed by Democrats in a roll call that adhered closer to party lines. Democrats acknowledged the new Senate map is an improvement, but they said it remains flawed. Well see you in court, Florida Democratic Party spokeswoman Brannon Jordan said in a terse statement. Democrats said their map would have doubled up eight incumbents against each other. No two incumbents would have been paired under the Senates original map. The new version puts only two incumbents in a single district, but Sen. David Simmons, R-Maitland, has said if that stands hell move to a nearby vacant district rather than oppose Senate Majority Leader Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando. The Supreme Court ruled eight Senate districts violated the Fair Districts standards. Besides favoring incumbents and the GOP the justices cited a lack of compactness and a failure to follow geographic and political boundaries. To fix those districts, though, the Senate redrew the lines of 24 districts. The justices also rejected the Senates district numbering scheme, ruling it intentionally favored incumbents. Numbering is a factor because all districts are up for election in a redistricting year instead of just half.

USFWS officials also noted they compromised on the final rules after listening to peoples concerns. They pointed to leaving a sport zone with a 25 mph speed zone as a prime example of concessions about concerns. The proposed rule had sought to make all of Kings Bay slow or idle speed. The sport zone will be open for use during daylight hours between June 1 and Aug. 15. Slow or idle speed is defined as speed that allows steerage for a boater. Jewel Lamb, who is with Save Crystal River Inc., a grassroots citizens group opposed to the rules, said her group is also drafting a letter of intent against USFWS. Lamb said they will be coordinating their activities with city and county officials to mount a pushback against what she calls a takeover of the bay. I say, the more, the merrier as we take them on, Lamb said. For more information about the new rules, go to http://fws.gov/northflorida/. Chronicle reporter A.B.

Associated PressNORFOLK, Va. Milky white chemical clouds were briefly visible in much of the night sky along the Eastern seaboard on Tuesday after NASA launched a series of rockets to study the jet stream at the edge of the earths atmosphere. The five sounding rockets began blasting off just before 5 a.m. from NASAs Wallops Island facility on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Each of the rockets was fired about 80 seconds apart and released a chemical cloud so that scientists could see little-understood winds about 65 miles above the earths surface. Firing multiple rockets allows scientists to track the high-speed winds over hundreds of miles. NASA said it received reports that the chemical clouds were visible as far south as Wilmington, N.C.; west to Charleston, W.Va.; and north to Buffalo, N.Y. The clouds were also visible above major metropolitan areas like Washington and New York. The winds NASA is studying travel at speeds of up to 300 miles per hour in an area of the atmosphere where there are strong electrical currents. Data gathered from the experiment should allow scientists to better model the electromagnetic regions of space that can damage satellites and affect radio communications. Scientists also hope the experiment will help explain how atmospheric disturbances in one part of the globe can be transported to other parts of the globe in a day or two.

State Board of Education takes up digital learningMIAMI Floridas Board of Education is discussing the expansion of online learning at public schools and colleges at its meeting in Miami. Leaders from four colleges and three school districts made presentations on Tuesday. They say the number of students taking a course that has online learning components is rising dramatically as opportunities expand. In the past 15 years, the number of students taking an online class at one of Floridas 28 colleges has risen from about 16,600 to 268,000. In all, about 33 percent of students took an online course in the 2010-11 school year. Many college-level degrees can now be completed entirely online. Several groups that promote online instruction are also providing a state and national outlook on how to continue advancing digital learning. Teamsters challenge Florida probation changeTALLAHASSEE The Teamsters union, which represents corrections employees, is challenging a decision to suspend visits by state probation officers to the homes of released convicts. The administrative law challenge was filed Tuesday against the Department of Corrections. The agency suspended home visits of at least once a month for probationers from March through June 30, the end of the current budget year. It also reduced visits from four to two per month for those sentenced to community control. Associated PressORLANDO Officials with the National Hurricane Center had a message Tuesday for residents living in hurricane-prone areas: Dont tape your windows. Center officials are joining with a consumer advocate group at the National Hurricane Conference in Orlando this week to encourage residents to skip taping their windows when a hurricane is heading their way. They believe it leads to a false sense of security and actually increases danger. Instead, residents should use proven methods such as hurricane shutters or impact-resistant windows, Bill Read, director of the National Hurricane Center, told hundreds of meteorologists and emergency management officials at the weeklong conference. Attendees are going to seminars on insurance policy and emergency communications as well as hawking hurricane-related wares such as canned food and building-hardening materials. Our goal is to break this myth, Read said, referring to taping. It does not protect your windows. At best, its an inconvenience. At worst, some people have the illusion that theyre safe ... and people can get severely hurt. Taping windows can create larger and deadlier shards of glass when winds blow through a home, said Leslie Chapman-Henderson, president and CEO of Federal Alliance for Safe Homes. The shards can become bigger because theyre being held together, Chapman-Henderson said. Youre wasting your time. Youre wasting your money and youre potentially increasing the danger to your home. Even some disaster management officials are guilty of advising residents to use tape on their windows. Read said when he started working in the 1970s, taping windows was still advised in hurricane brochures. That advice was eliminated from brochures in the 1980s, but it still persists today, he said. Hurricane Irenes devastation last year in Vermont and upstate New York was an impetus for the campaign, said Chapman-Henderson, because thousands of residents in the northeast taped their windows. Her group is enlisting local TV meteorologists to tell viewers Go Tapeless at the start of the coming Atlantic hurricane season, which starts in June. Irene, which barreled up the Eastern seaboard last August and caused the most damage in upstate New York and New England, also reinforced the notion that hurricanes are not just about damage from winds and storm surges but also from rainfall and flooding and spinoff tornadoes, said Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Irene caused $1.5 billion in damage in New York and $515 million in damage in Vermont. Last seasons 19 tropical storms, seven hurricanes and four major hurricanes tied for the third busiest season since records have been kept, officials said. If nothing else, Irene reminds everyone that hurricanes are all hazards, Fugate said. Who would have thought that some of the heaviest damage would occur in Vermont and upstate New York? HURRICANE WIND SCALE A minor change is coming to the five-category system describing hurricane strength. The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale starts at Category 1 with top sustained winds at 74 mph. Categories 3 and above are considered major. The National Weather Service says an adjustment was necessary to smooth converting units of wind speed measurement for public advisories. The change broadens the Category 4 wind speed range to 130-156 mph, instead of 131-155 mph. That shifts the Category 3 range to 111-129 mph, instead of 111-130 mph. Category 5 hurricanes will have top winds of 157 mph or higher, instead of a threshold of 156 mph. Categories 1 and 2 remain unchanged. No historical storm records will be altered. The change takes effect May 15.

FTC seeks to shed light on data brokersNEW YORK The Federal Trade Commission is calling for a new law that would allow people to review the vast amounts of information being collected about them as the Internet, smartphones and other technology make it easier to create digital dossiers of just about anyones life. Its an unusually tough proposal from a consumer protection agency that prefers to coax companies into adopting voluntary principles. Part of an online privacy report the FTC released this week, the suggestion comes a month after the Obama administration proposed a Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights and urged technology companies, consumer groups and others to work together on developing more safeguards. The FTCs 57-page report also touched on other topics: The agency said Congress needs to impose more limits on so-called data brokers, who profit from collecting and selling files information that can affect peoples ability to get a job or find housing. Data brokers range from publicly traded companies such as Acxiom Corp. to a hodgepodge of small, regional service companies with just a few employees. Home prices mostly fell in JanuaryWASHINGTON Home prices fell in January for a fifth straight month in most major U.S. cities, as modest sales increases have yet to boost prices. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller home-price index released Tuesday showed that prices dropped in January from December in 16 of 19 cities tracked. The steepest declines were in San Francisco, Atlanta and Portland. Prices increased in Miami, Phoenix and Washington. Price information for Charlotte was delayed and therefore not included in the report. Enbridge to spend $3.8B on pipeline CALGARY, Alberta Pipeline builder Enbridge Inc. is investing nearly $4 billion in a new round of construction that will increase the flow of Canadian oil sands crude to the U.S. Gulf Coast. Enbridge, Canadas largest transporter of crude, said Tuesday it will expand its Flanagan South Pipeline from Flanagan, Ill., to Cushing, Okla., to a 36inch (.9-meter) diameter line with a capacity of 585,000 barrels per day. The Flanagan pipeline, expected to be in service by mid2014, will be built along the route of Enbridges existing pipeline from southeast of Chicago to Oklahoma.

Associated PressNEW YORK Major stock indexes dipped Tuesday as weak readings on consumer confidence gave investors little reason to extend the recent rally. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 43.90 points to close at 13,197.73, a loss of 0.3 percent. Bank of America fell 3.3 percent, the biggest drop in the Dow, after an analyst downgraded the stock. Major indexes opened higher, then pulled back after 10 a.m., when the Conference Board said its index of consumer confidence slipped in March. Higher gas prices offset the surging stock market. Around the same time, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, Virginia reported that a measure of regional manufacturing plunged this month. Other indexes edged lower. The Standard & Poors 500 index dropped 3.99 points to 1,412.52. The Nasdaq composite fell 2.22 points to 3,120.35. More than four stocks fell for every three that rose on the New York Stock Exchange. Trading volume was well below average at 3.4 billion. The S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq are up more than 1 percent for the week. The S&P 500 has already gained 12.3 percent to start the year. That three-month surge easily beats the 8 percent return most fund managers hope to make in a whole year. The Nasdaq is up even more for the year, 19.8 percent. Brian Gendreau, market strategist at Cetera Financial, said the stock market still has room to go higher even after such a strong start. Companies in the S&P 500 index are trading for around 13 times their expected earnings over the next year, below the average of 14.6 times over the past decade. And theres plenty of cash still tucked away in the Treasury market. Compared to bonds, stocks remain very attractive, Gendreau said. That doesnt tell you if well get a move in a week or a month from now, but it does tell you that theres a lot of pent-up demand. Earnings from Lennar Corp. pulled housing stocks up. The countrys thirdlargest builder reported quarterly profits that beat analysts estimates by delivering more houses and pulling in more orders. Lennar rose 4.7 percent, the best gain in the S&P 500 index. PulteGroup rose 3.6 percent, D.R. Horton 2.8 percent. The economic reports on consumer confidence and regional manufacturing helped push up prices in the U.S. government debt market, where traders park funds when the economy looks sluggish. The 10-year Treasury note rose 53 cents for every $100 invested. The yield fell to 2.18 percent from 2.26 percent late Monday.

O PINION Page A10 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2012 A modest proposalIn the past, China had a serious opium problem with a large number of its people. This problem was solved over the course of one generation by the following actions. All people addicted to opium were required to register with the government, whereupon the government supplied them with their required amount of opium for the rest of their lives. However, anyone caught with opium and not registered were executed: problem solved! Since most crime is drug related, costing billions and billions of dollars, would not a more civilized version of this solution be worth trying? Is what were doing now working? Richard B. Sartell Homosassa Just listen Being a good talker is not necessarily the best way to make love, or even a good impression. As a psychotherapist for more than 60 years, I learned early that to help/heal individuals with emotional problems was to get them to talk, and intently listen to them, and felt that if I listened therapeutically to appropriate psychodynamic material and accepted the truth being spoken, then as the Bible states, If one knows the truth, the truth would make one free (well). More and more I am thinking that maybe the acceptance of truth is only a part of healing, but rather the major factor is that therapeutic talking relationships may uniquely become a love relationship. This means that when one sincerely listens to another talk, it may create feelings of interest, understanding, acceptance, and ultimately the healing power of agape (unselfish) love. My conclusion now is that that talking and/or listening is not so much the cure for helping a person with their personal and interpersonal problems, but rather the major healing factor is a psychodynamic communicated feeling of love. A person who can listen well and gives precedent to anothers wordage, may emotionally generate a conversation into a love reality. Consequently then, positive interpersonal relationships certainly may not be so much about a smooth line, fancy dress, money, and/or sex, but rather about the willingness to care enough about another person to simply just listen. William C. Young Crystal River T he March 22 edition of the Citrus County Chronicle featured an editorial opinion related to the recent decision made by the College of Central Florida to discontinue open-enrollment noncredit courses at the Citrus Campus. While the editorial board expressed the opinion that this was not a good move on the part of CF, I suspect they did so without having a complete understanding of the very complex context in which this decision was made. It has been and always will be the mission of the College of Central Florida to serve the needs of the local community by offering accessible, high quality, affordable educational programs. The college, however, does not operate in a vacuum unaffected by the economic and market forces that have forced virtually all individuals, families, businesses, municipalities, and other public and private entities with fiscal responsibility to seek greater efficiencies in their respective operations. Over the past two decades the state-funded portion of the CF operating budget has been reduced from 80 percent to around 50 percent. Fixed costs such as utility expenses, insurance, and maintenance costs have continued to increase, while state funding per student (FTE) has continued to decline. In short, this is not a sustainable fiscal model. In spite of this, CF has managed to remain on solid financial footing by carefully reducing operating expenses where possible, strategically building one of the largest educational foundations in the state, and attracting significant enrollment increases of tuition-paying college credit students. The decision to discontinue our limited schedule of non-credit courses was made only after carefully considering a number of key factors. First, the college did, as the editorial board suggested, consider supply and demand factors. While there has been a 120 percent increase in the demand for college credit classes and programs over the past five years at the Citrus Campus, there has been a significant drop in demand for most non-credit offerings on campus over the same period. An increasingly high percentage of scheduled non-credit courses have been canceled due to lack of enrollment, while college-credit courses continue to fill at record pace. Add to this the issue of program availability. Many, if not most, of the non-credit courses traditionally offered by CF are also offered by other community entities, including Withlacoochee Technical Institute, community centers, civic associations and social clubs. CF is the only accredited institution based in Citrus County offering college credit instructional programs leading to associates and bachelors degrees. In a county where the percentage of adults with college degrees is far below both the state and national average, focusing more of our limited resources on degree programs and degree completion seems to us a prudent decision a decision in line with making our area a more attractive destination for would-be industries seeking an educated workforce. As a member of the Florida College System, CF must also operate within the parameters established by the Florida Legislature. These parameters include a statutory requirement that non-credit offerings at each college be fully self-sustaining and produce at least enough revenue to cover all costs associated with the offerings. Declining demand for non-credit instruction has made this extremely challenging for CF. The state offers no FTE funding support to colleges for non-credit continuing education. At the point the college cannot fully cover expenses in non-credit programming, ceasing these operations becomes a statutory obligation. Finally, it is most important that the community realize that while there will be no published schedule of non-credit offerings, requests for workforce training from Citrus County businesses will receive full and immediate attention. Customized corporate training will continue to be delivered on demand in Citrus County, either on campus or at any area business. CF will continue to work with local workforce partners including Workforce Connection, the Chamber of Commerce, the Citrus County Economic Development Council, SBDC and SCORE to ensure we have a well-prepared workforce. Rest assured that CF takes its commitment to the local community very seriously. The decision we have made regarding noncredit instruction was made after years of serious deliberation and in the interest of keeping up with the growing local demand for credit programming we are uniquely obligated, and privileged, to provide. CF is fully committed to remaining a vibrant community-focused institution where students transform their lives, and prepare to be strong community members committed to giving back to their community.

Charlie Dean, RInverness, deserves credit for his concern about water quality. His latest endeavor is music to our ears and the melody must be sounding exceptionally sweet to Art Jones. Dean has procured $100,000 in state funding for Jones Save Kings Bay effort. The project relies on the manpower of volunteers and donations from the community to rake up the lyngbya currently fouling the oncepristine body of water. We are pleased Dean fought for and included the money in the latest budget. It is a boon for Jones project and will go a long way toward seeing if the endeavor can have more than a temporary impact. The money is being channeled through the Crystal River city managers office, which means Jones effort may not be the only one that receives financial support. We suggest other pilot projects be given consideration if the venture merits support. One never knows where the next great idea may come from and it is important to look for ideas that may generate long-term results. Ultimately the goal would be to replace the natural grass that once populated the Kings Bay bottom where it acted as an important filtering system, removing sediments and nutrients and producing oxygen. More importantly, the natural grass acts as a wildlife attractant for various species of fish, mammals and birds. If successful, Jones project could be the first step in the process of ridding the Kings Bay of the slimy, noxious weed that has fouled the waterway and choked out plants and animals alike. The environmental health of Kings Bay is essential ecologically and economically to our area. We thank Sen. Dean for his support in this effort with the understanding this is only the beginning of what we hope will be a positive turn for the health of Kings Bay.

Abortion a sin Editors note: This is a rebuttal to the Sunday,March 11, guest column Why I Stand With Planned Parenthood by Maria Weiser.First of all, Im sympathetic of what Maria experienced as a young coed. Planned Parenthood probably helped a lot of people like Maria. But, that was then and now is now. Things have changed drastically with this organization. After abortion became legal with the 1973 Supreme Court decision, Planned Parenthood became a baby killing factory. More than 50,000,000 of this countys babies have been murdered and never got to see the light of day. If this hideous practice where shown on television, Americans would demandit be stopped immediately. Abortion is a sin that cries to Heaven for vengeance. It might be this fiscal crisis we face today is Gods way of punishing this nation for the slaughter of the innocent. Have you ever heard of how you are guilty of participation in the sin of another? For example: If you and I rob a bank and we shoot and kill a bank guard, your friend is the wheel man and my friend is the lookout. You and I get life, the wheel man and the lookout get 10 years and 5 years respectively as accomplices to murder. So too, if I counsel a woman to have an abortion and her husband demands she have one, both are guilty of a sin of murdering a baby. The same can be said of someone giving money to Planned Parenthood. If, as a Christian, I vote in this coming election for Obama and the Democratic candidates for the House and Senate, Im guilty of abortion by association and all the other evils of the Democratic platform. There is a bookworth reading called, Can a Catholic be a Democrat by David Carlin. His conclusion is, yes, if he votes Democratic on a local level, but no on the national Democrat platform that espouses abortion and all the other liberal evils. Sin is Sin, and there is such a thing as the 10 Commandments, whether you believe in them or not, obey them or suffer the consequences. God sees all. You get away with nothing! Tom Barron Citrus Hills Forget about pills I have to laugh over this situation with the woman in the eye of the birth control maelstrom. The way the left-wing media portrays it and the liberals believe it, those mean ol Republicans are trying to prevent this woman from getting her pills. That is not the situation. It is a question of who will pay for them. Will she or her insurance pay for them? Or will we the taxpayers pay for them? Why are we expected to pay for her birth-control pills? But folks open your eyes! This is not about this one woman or who pays for her pills. This is a carefully manipulated red herring meant to divert Americas attention away from the critical problems like gas prices, unemployment, our national debt, families being put out of their foreclosed homes, cutting our military far too much, threatening cuts in Social Security and Medicare. The uproar about Ms. Flukes pills is like a magicians hands. You are watching the left hand while the right hand pulls the rabbit out of the hat. We are meant to get all teary-eyed over her birthcontrol pills and all the while our country is being sold out from under us. Wake up, America! Forget who is going to pay for this womans pills and worry about saving this country.Harry Cooper Hernando Health care law Looking back over the history of health care in this country, many things amaze me. People in many countries have health care systems that work, and we dont. Europeans pay less for more. Americans found it acceptable that people lost their life savings, because they became ill. Medical problems contribute to personal bankruptcy. This is unheard of in countries like Canada. Insurance companies could drop people just when they needed insurance the most. The affordable health care law prevents this. Now, young people can be carried on their parents insurance until they are 26, and pre-existing conditions are covered. It took decades for a president to be able to pass a health care law. President Obama succeeded where his predecessors failed. Republicans plant fear in the minds of Americans, without facts to back it up, calling it Obamacare as a way to show lack of respect for the president. We were at the mercy of health insurance companies, as they got richer. Their profits rose 56 percent in 2009 rates. Now they must spend 85 percent of premiums on care and quality improvement, or they refund money to the consumer. Why dont we have a better health care system? Republicans are afraid of change, dont want to give Barack Obama a victory, and they support big business. They dont care if everyone gets health care, as long as they do. Our wealth is not our worth as human beings! We are not going to move forward in this century by looking behind us. What is the Republicans alternative? Lower health care premiums, but they dont say how. Having employers reward those who have healthier lifestyles. (The less government intervention party? No. They want business to have the right to intervene in your life.) They also claim they can do their plan without job cuts, Medicare cuts or tax increases. Thats unbelievable. The next presidential election will be critical to middle class Americans. Giving in to fear and not re-electing President Barack Obama would be a disaster for the middle class in America. Vicky Iozzia Crystal River Liberal double standard In the Sunday, March 11, edition of the Chronicle a writer quotes Matthew from the New Testament to defend Obama. It is yet another example of liberal Democratic double standard. The liberal left, which has long declared and waged a constant war against God and religion, decrying the intrusion of religion into the political arena (and rightly so), has absolutely no qualms about invoking religious quotations to propagandize un-American ideology. The writers biblical reference is used for the sole purpose of justifying social justice. The writer, however, very conveniently omitted three letters at the end of the expression social justice. The letters ist should have been added to the word social (ist). The concept the writer describes as social justice, to which Obama readily subscribed, is the core ideology of Karl Marxs Communist Manifesto. It is diametrically opposed to Thomas Jeffersons declaration Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who are not. While it is societys duty and obligation to help those truly in need who are not able to help themselves, it is not the governments right to stifle motivation for advancement through hard work because Obama intends to punish that individual for greater achievement just to buy votes through continued entitlement programs. Isnt it time for the liberals to put the American Constitution before their leftist agenda? It took me over 40 years as a Democrat before I realized the Democratic administrations never represented the working family. They simply overtaxed the working class to use the revenue for myriad entitlements they created and thusly keep the votes coming.

A former Kansas abortion provider isnt likely to face criminal charges for discarding hundreds of patients private medical records in a recycling bin outside an elementary school, but anti-abortion lawmakers called Tuesday for the state Legislature to investigate. Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said he doesnt expect to pursue a criminal case against Krishna Rajanna, who confirmed that he left records from Affordable Medical and Surgical Services in a school recycling bin blocks from his home in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park. The Kansas City, Kan., clinic closed in 2005, shortly after the State Board of Healing Arts, which regulates physicians, revoked Rajannas Kansas medical license.

Syria OKs plan; clashes continue QAA, Lebanon Syria accepted a cease-fire drawn up by U.N. envoy Kofi Annan on Tuesday, but the diplomatic breakthrough was swiftly overshadowed by intense clashes between government soldiers and rebels that sent bullets flying into Lebanon. Opposition members accuse President Bashar Assad of agreeing to the plan to stall for time as his troops make a renewed push to kill off bastions of dissent. Annans announcement that Syria had accepted his peace plan was met with deep skepticism. We are not sure if its political maneuvering or a sincere act, said Louay Safi, a member of the opposition Syrian National Council. We have no trust in the current regime. ... We have to see that they have stopped killing civilians. Annans plan calls for an immediate, two-hour halt in fighting every day to allow humanitarian access and medical evacuations. The plan also outlines a complete cease-fire, but that will take more time because Syria must first move troops and equipment out of cities and towns, government forces and the divided opposition must stop fighting, and a U.N.-supervised monitoring mission must be established. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressWASHINGTON The fate of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul was cast into deeper jeopardy Tuesday as the Supreme Courts conservative justices sharply and repeatedly questioned its core requirement that virtually every American carry insurance. The court will now take up whether any remnant of the historic law can survive if that linchpin fails. The justices questions in Tuesdays hearing carried deeply serious implications but were sometimes flavored with fanciful suggestions. If the government can force people to buy health insurance, justices wanted to know, can it require people to buy burial insurance? Cellphones? Broccoli? The law, pushed to passage by Obama and congressional Democrats two years ago, would affect nearly all Americans and extend insurance coverage to 30 million people who now lack it. Republicans are strongly opposed, including the presidential contenders now campaigning for the chance to challenge Obama in November. The court focused on whether the mandate for Americans to have insurance is a step beyond what our cases allow, in the words of Justice Anthony Kennedy. But Kennedy, who is often the swing vote on cases that divide the justices along ideological lines, also said he recognized the magnitude of the nations health care problems and seemed to suggest they would require a comprehensive solution. He and Chief Justice John Roberts emerged as the apparent pivotal votes in the courts decision. The ruling is due in June in the midst of a presidential election campaign that has focused in part on the new law. Though many of the justices asked tough questions and made strong statements, past cases have shown that those dont necessarily translate into votes when it comes time for a decision. Wednesdays final arguments the third day in the unusually long series of hearings will focus on whether the rest of the law can remain even if the insurance mandate is struck down and, separately, on the constitutionality of another provision expanding the federal-state Medicaid program. The insurance requirement is intended to complement two unchallenged provisions of the law that require insurers to cover people regardless of existing medical conditions and limit how much they can charge in premiums based on a persons age or health. The law envisions that insurers will be able to accommodate older and sicker people without facing financial ruin because the insurance requirement will provide insurance companies with more premiums from healthy people to cover the increased costs of care. Judges sharply question health law Skepticism about mandate Associated PressCONIFER, Colo. Two people were found dead in an area destroyed by a wildfire that has claimed 23 homes and forced hundreds to flee the mountainous area southwest of Denver, authorities said Tuesday. The Jefferson County coroner identified the couple as 77-year-old Sam Lamar Lucas and 76-year-old Linda M. Lucas. The wife was found outside the burned home on Monday evening; the husband was found inside on Tuesday. Authorities havent concluded whether they died because of the fire, which has grown to about 7 square miles. Jefferson County coroner John M. Graham said a final report on their deaths wasnt expected for several weeks. A third person is missing from the same area where the bodies of the Lucases were found. The fire is burning several miles and mountain ridges west of Denvers tightly populated southwestern suburbs, which are not under threat. The area of pines and grassland is mountainous and sparsely populated, dotted with hamlets and the occasional expensive home. It is about 25 miles southwest of Denver at an altitude that ranges from 7,000 to 8,200 feet. No part of the fire has been contained, with authorities focusing on defending homes rather than building fire lines. The fire threat in much of Colorado has grown during an unusually dry and warm March. The potential for significant fires is increasing across parts of the southwest, although most western states face normal wildfire danger, according to National Interagency Fire Center reports. About 900 homes have been evacuated and the residents of another 6,500 houses were warned to be ready to evacuate Tuesday because the fire has been acting erratically. Many of the homes are in winding canyons, and authorities say giving people advance notice can help prevent accidents during evacuations. Jefferson County sheriffs spokeswoman Jacki Kelley had said earlier that the wildfire may have been a controlled burn from last week that sprang back to life because of strong wind gusts.

Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea Speaking to the microphones intentionally this time, President Barack Obama on Tuesday assured he had no hidden agenda with Russia for a second term, seeking to contain a controversial gaffe that bounded all the way to the campaign trail at home and back again. Obama got caught on tape Monday telling Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have more room to negotiate on missile defense after getting through a November election, presumably expecting to win and not have to face voters again. Obamas Republican rivals back home pounced, accusing him of secretive plotting and dealing over American national security. The presidents explanation: He wants to work with Russia on the deeply divisive issue of a missile defense shield in Europe, knowing only by building trust first on that matter can he make gains on another goal of nuclear arms reductions. And theres no way to expect progress during the politics of this election year, so he is already looking to 2013. This is not a matter of hiding the ball, Obama said, well aware of criticism erupting at home. Im on record. Still, Obama had not meant for his initial political assessment to be heard. It was picked up by live microphones during a meeting with Medvedev and soon shot around the world. This is my last election, Obama was heard telling Medvedev, Russias outgoing president. After my election, I have more flexibility. Seizing on the comments, 43 Republican senators sent a letter to the president saying any concessions to the Russians would run counter to U.S. safety and security, and contradict assurances Obama gave the Senate when he secured ratification of the New START treaty in December 2010. We will oppose any efforts by your administration to arbitrarily limit our missile defense capabilities or pursue ill-advised nuclear arms reductions, wrote the senators, led by Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona. Obama said he wants to spend the rest of this year working through technical issues with the Russians, and said it was not surprising that a deal couldnt be completed quickly. Obama walks back remark Not hiding the ball on Russia Associated PressMINEOLA, N.Y. The millions of students who take the SAT or ACT each year will have to submit photos of themselves when they sign up for the college entrance exams, under a host of new security measures announced Tuesday in the aftermath of a major cheating scandal on Long Island. The two companies that administer the tests, the College Board and ACT Inc., agreed to the precautions under public pressure brought to bear by Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, who is overseeing the investigation. The measures take effect in the fall. I believe these reforms, and many others which are happening behind the scenes, will prevent the kind of cheating that our investigation uncovered, and give high schools and colleges the tools they need to identify those who try to cheat, Rice said. Rice has charged 20 current or former students from a cluster of well-to-do, high-achieving suburbs on Long Island with participating in a scheme in which teenagers hired other people for as much as $3,500 each to take the exam for them. In one instance, a young man allegedly produced ID and took the test for a teenage girl who had a name that could have been either male or female. Students have long been required to show identification when they arrive for one of the tests. Under the new rules, they will have to submit head shots of themselves in advance with their test application. A copy of the photo will be printed on the admission ticket mailed to each student, and will also appear on the test site roster. Cheating prompts tighter test security

The two teams split in doubles with Lecantos No. 1 team of Rishi Gurnani and Zach Alford dropping the match 8-5 to Crystal Rivers Brandon Papp and Travis Swanson. The No. 2 match went to Lecanto as Sam Alford and Lloyd Justo defeated Matt Allen and Alex Papp 8-2. Lecanto took all of the singles matches to decisively win the meet. The No. 1-seeded match was a brutally fought battle between two gifted tacticians but Gurnani came out on top 9-7 over Papp. The Panthers Zach Alford narrowly edged out the Pirates Travis Swanson in the No. 2 match 8-6. Lecantos Sam Alford shut out Crystal Rivers Matt Allen in the No. 3 singles 8-0. At No. 4 singles, Lecantos Lloyd Justo quickly shut down Crystal Rivers Alex Papp 8-2. Dale Eastmond of Lecanto won the No. 5 match in similar fashion as he defeated Crystal Rivers Ryan Johnson 8-2. Most of the contests were close but ultimately they got the best of those close contests, Crystal River head coach Bill Reyes said. They did a great job and I wish them luck in districts. We continue (on) and hopefully (well) iron out the kinks and be ready by next week. Lecanto routs Crystal River 6-1; tourneys coming up Lady Panthers beat Pirates 4-3 in rematch DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle ABOVE : Lecanto High Schools Rishi Gurnani defeated Crystal Rivers Brandon Papp 9-7 in No. 1 singles Tuesday at Crystal River High School. BELOW RIGHT: Crystal River High Schools Kayla Papp earned a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Lecanto High Schools Amber Gamble in No. 1 singles at Crystal River. J USTIN P LANTE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER After a hairsplitting first meeting between the two, it was assumed the rematch between the Lecanto and Crystal River girls tennis teams would produce a similar outing. Neither team disappointed, as the traveling Lady Panthers picked up their second win over the Pirates, taking the match 4-3. We have a great relationship with Lecanto, Crystal River coach Cynthia Reynolds said. They just outplayed us today. Lecantos four wins came via their singles play. Madison Gamble, Lecantos No. 2 singles player, notched an impressive win over Crystal Rivers Ashley Allen, taking both sets 6-4, 6-1. Afterwards, she was complimentary of her opponent. It was a lot of fun, Madison Gamble said. She (Allen) is a really good player and she was serving the ball very well. The No. 4 singles match, between Lecantos Chynna Liu and Crystal Rivers Jessica Reynolds, looked as if it was going to come down to a tie breaker, but Liu held on to finish off the match in a 6-1, 7-5 outcome. The most competitive match of the night came between No. 3 players Simi Shah from Lecanto and Nikki Moynihan of Crystal River. After Moynihan took the first set 6-4, Shah battled back J.M.

See HORIZONS / Page B3 Baylors Brittney Griner leads AP All-America team See WARRIORS / Page B4 See CANES / Page B4 Boys tennis takes 6-1 loss in district contest Associated PressBrittney Griner has dominated womens basketball all season. Now the 6-foot-8 junior phenom is a unanimous selection to The Associated Press All-America team Tuesday, a day after leading the unbeaten Lady Bears to their second Final Four in three seasons. She was joined on the squad by Stanfords Nnemkadi Ogwumike, Notre Dames Skylar Diggins, Delawares Elena Delle Donne and Marylands Alyssa Thomas. That would be a very strong team, Griner said. I feel sorry for anyone who would have to play us. Griner, who was on the first team for the second straight year, hasnt taken pity on her opponents. She has the Lady Bears two wins away from becoming the first team in NCAA history to go 40-0. I would never have thought it would be like this. Its amazing, Griner said. Sometimes you forget what youve done. You dont sit back and enjoy it as youre so focused on a goal. It definitely has been a great year so far. I hope it finishes the right way, too. Griner has been incredible all season, but raised her game over the last month. Shes averaging 23.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 5.2 blocks this season. Throw in two incredible dunks in the NCAA tournament and shes been unstoppable. Griner and Ogwumike received 200 points and were unanimous choices by the 40-member national media panel that votes in the weekly Top 25. Its the fifth straight season that there has been at least one unanimous choice. Voting was done before the NCAA tournament. Its the first time since 2006 that no Tennessee or Connecticut players were on the first team. Ogwumike had been on the second team the past two seasons and was thrilled to make the first team this year. Yet she was more excited that her sister Chiney earned second team honors. Not a lot of people can say they play with their sister and win an award, the Stanford senior forward said. Im really proud of Chiney. She even has more to grow on as shes only a sophomore. For her to be one of the top players in the country as a sophomore is remarkable. See GRINER / Page B4 See LADY / Page B4

No matter what tee you play from, this hole is an extremely demanding hole. The doglegleft hole is enclosed with trees on both sides and sandy waste area on the left side of the fairway indicative of the course name, Pine Barrens. At the pinnacle of the dogleg, golfers will notice the fairway provides more room to the right to hit a tee shot. However, this also adds more yardage to your second shot. The aesthetics and serenity of the Pine Barrens make it a very unique golf course by Florida standards. Rated No. 2 in the state of Florida by Golfweek, this is truly a golf course that needs to be on your bucket list of mustplay golf courses. Tee shotDepending on the tees you play, the tee shot must favor the right center of the fairway, due to the waste area on the left side that protects the bend in the dogleg. Tee shots ending up on the right side of the fairway will find a more level lie. However, it also will add 10 to 20 yards to the length of the hole. For most golfers this is an acceptable tradeoff versus being in the waste area to the left. Any tee shot finding the left waste area or ending up in the trees to the left of the fairway will have difficulty reaching the green. A wellexecuted tee shot to the left side of the fairway will leave golfers with a distance of 160 to 170 yards. Tee shots on the right side have a distance of 170 to 200 yards to the green. Approach shotThe second shot is just as demanding, because the green is protected on the front right by a large and very deep sandy waste area. To end your round successfully, the second shot must avoid this area. Most golfers do not hit enough club and, consequently, do not carry the golf ball far enough when hitting approach shots to the green. Therefore, take one extra club for your second shot. The mistake on the approach shot for this hole is missing the green short. Although the area past the green is not visible, there is no trouble if your golf ball comes to rest past the green. For the golfer who is unable to carry the ball over the front right waste area, he or she will have a better chance at achieving par if he or she plays the second shot short and left of the green. This will present an easier third shot to a green that has a lot of movement (i.e. a lot of slope throughout the green). On the greenAs you view the green from the fairway, the green is egg-shaped with the front left part closest to the golfer. Medium-sized humps are positioned on both sides of the green with the low portion being through the middle. Based on the location of the flagstick, maintaining focus becomes crucial when putting. In addition, the green slopes from back to front. Therefore, players who hit shots short will have the best opportunity to make the putt. Pros tipA conservative tee shot to the right of the fairway sets up the second shot to the green. Hit one extra club than what you anticipate since the second shot is slightly uphill, and a majority of the trouble is short of the green. Once on the green, do not lose focus. Ending a round of golf with a three putt always causes the food and drink in the clubhouse to not taste as good nor paying off any friendly wagers caused by the flat stick on the last green. Remain focused and finish like a champion. Scott Wyckoff is the general manager and PGA golf professional at World Woods Golf Club.

Travers agreed, saying, The fact that a teammate was coming with me, it was pretty close to home and the offer they gave me was pretty good. Its a smaller campus. It looked like high school, just at a different level, Travers continued. I could manage my grades and football at the same time. Roberts was a multifaceted threat on the gridiron, playing fullback, linebacker and even blocking two punts on special teams. Roberts had 456 yards rushing and five touchdowns on offense, while registering two sacks, two forced fumbles and one recovered fumble on the other side of the ball. At Webber, the Hurricane is slotted to play outside linebacker. Brandon was attractive to a lot of different schools because hes a versatile athlete, Citrus football coach Rayburn Greene said. If Im a college coach and Im looking for someone, he fits a lot of different molds. Travers was a stalwart on the offensive line for Citrus, holding down the right tackle position and leading the Hurricanes with 20 pancake blocks in 2011 for a unit that averaged 240 rushing yards a game. Roberts and Travers were both 2011 selections on the AllChronicle football team. Greene said Travers really came into his own during his senior campaign. He really had a great senior year, the coach said. Those last five or six games, he really turned it on, especially in run blocking. As far as the classroom goes, Roberts would like to major in education and become a math teacher while Travers said hed focus on a business degree. Greene described the pair as very coachable and hardworking players during his two seasons at Citrus. Although Travers and Roberts arrived at the same decision, the path along the way was decidedly different. Travers, for his part, enjoyed football growing up and knew as a freshman he wanted to play in college. Roberts came to that conclusion in his first year of high school, but his initial experience with the sport wasnt glowing. My first year playing (in seventh grade), I didnt really like it that much, Roberts said. But my stepdad brought me back on the field and Ive liked it ever since. J.M.

Local season nears end Eric van den Hoogen ON COURT Roddick loses to Monaco in Fla. Associated PressKEY BISCAYNE, Fla. The buzz Andy Roddick got from beating Roger Federer turned into a hangover Tuesday, when Juan Monaco became a real headache. Less than 24 hours after his upset win over Federer, Roddick endured a drubbing against Monaco, 7-5, 6-0. Monaco, a patient baseliner seeded 21st, was unfazed by Roddicks big serve, and the match became a succession of long rallies. Roddick began to look weary as the match progressed and stumbled after several shots as the match slipped away. Roddick said hes not in peak condition after being sidelined by right hamstring and right ankle injuries earlier this year. I just didnt have it physically, he said. I got to about 4-all, and I was you know, Im out of shape. Thats it. The loss was a big comedown after Roddick beat Federer for only the third time in 24 tries, temporarily silencing critics who say he should consider retirement. Roddicks ranking has slipped to 34th, his lowest since 2001. He might return to the top 30 next week, and he said his game is headed in the right direction entering the clay-court season. No. 2-seeded Maria Sharapova became the first semifinalist when she routed reigning French Open champion Li Na 6-3, 60. Sharapova had lost their previous four meetings. In other mens fourthround play, No. 2 Rafael Nadal swept five consecutive games midway through his match and beat No. 16seeded Kei Nishikori 6-4, 6-4. The victory was by far Nadals most taxing of the tournament.

coach the Wildcats after compiling a 462-237 record and coaching two Land OLakes High School teams to the state runners-up in 1977 and 1979. I was very fortunate, English said. I had some good athletes that were here before I came in. They had a good coach before. They asked me and I took it. These two teams will play each other again Thursday in Land O Lakes. The Ogwumikes became the first sisters to be AllAmericans in the same season. In 2009, Oklahomas Courtney Paris earned first team honors while her sister was honorable mention. Kelly Miller of Georgia made the first team in 2001 while her sister Coco was honorable mention. Its never happened on the mens side, either. Diggins became the first Notre Dame player to make the first-team since Ruth Riley did it in consecutive years in 2000 and 2001. The junior guard was instrumental in helping the Irish win their first outright Big East regular season championship, averaging 16.6 points and 5.7 assists. Diggins knows that shed probably have a lot more assists if she was playing with this All-American squad. Id love to be the floor general for that team, Diggins said. Id probably average 20 assists. I can tell you right now, wed be undefeated, wed win every game by double digits. Delle Donne carried Delaware to unprecedented heights this season. The 6-foot-5 junior led the nation in scoring averaging 28.1 points. She helped the Blue Hens go undefeated in the Colonial Athletic Association, win the conference tournament for the first time and earn their first Top 25 ranking. She capped off the season by getting the Blue Hens their first NCAA tournament victory. Now shes the schools initial first team All-American. She was on the third team two seasons ago. This is truly a great honor to be considered among the top womens basketball players in the country, Delle Donne said. I am proud to represent the University of Delaware and I share this honor with my teammates and the coaching staff. Although the season ended earlier than we had hoped, this past year is one that I will always remember. Thomas guided Maryland to the ACC tournament championship and was the conferences player of the year as a sophomore. She also has helped the Terrapins reach the NCAA tournament regional final. This is such an honor to be named an AP All-American as a sophomore because theres so many great players in the country. Joining Chiney Ogwumike on the second team were Baylor sophomore Odyssey Sims, Miami senior Shenise Johnnson, Ohio State senior Samantha Prahalis and Wisconsin-Green Bay senior Julie Wotja. The third-team members: Connecticut senior Tiffany Hayes, Kentucky junior Adia Mathies, Duke freshman Elizabeth Williams, Tennessee senior Shekinna Stricklen and Miami senior Riquna Williams. It marked only the second time since the All-America team was first honored in 1995 that no Tennessee or Connecticut player made either the first or second team (2005 and 2006). The preseason All-America team was Griner, Diggins, Ogwumike, Johnson and Stricklen. 10-8 score. The Knights (9-5) Lucas Taub defeated the Canes Michael Hetland in a hardfought 6-4, 6-4 match to improve to a perfect 13-0 this season. The only victorious match for Citrus on the day for Citrus was when Kyle Everett and Grey Pospiech came back to from a 6-1 deficit in a pro-set match to defeat the Knights Alex Wartels and Taub in a tiebreaker (10-8) to win by a 9-8 score and avoid the Vanguard sweep. Citrus hosts rival Crystal River at 4 p.m. Thursday. to take a 7-6 (with a tiebreak of 9-7) win in the second. The last set, which was played by tie-breaker rules, went to a resilient Shah, who just outlasted her opponent to take the final set 12-10. Lecantos Polak Gosai rounded out singles play with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Crystal Rivers Veronica Williams. Williams is a good opponent, Gosai said after the match. It was a good match, and a lot of fun. Crystal Rivers victories came in the form of No. 1 singles player Kayla Papp, who took in the win against Lecantos Amber Gamble, taking both sets 6-1, 6-3. After Lecanto took the early victories, all but ending the night, both teams decided to finish off playing pro-sets for the doubles matches. In the No. 1 doubles match, Crystal Rivers Allen and Papp fought back against the Gamble sisters early lead to take a 9-7 win. In the second doubles match, Lecantos Adrienne Burnett and Liu jumped out to an early 5-0 lead, before Crystal Rivers Moynihan and Jessica Reynolds fought back to claim the tough victory 8-5. Lecanto finishes off the week resting and preparing for districts, which begin on Monday. Crystal River hosts county rival Citrus on Thursday.

Judge praises Redmond ONeal LOS ANGELES The son of Ryan ONeal and the late Farrah Fawcett earned high praise Tuesday for his progress in drug treatment from a judge who urged him to keep making healthy, smart decisions. Redmond ONeal appeared in court in a dark suit and looked noticeably healthier than he did during previous court appearances. Judge Keith L. Schwartz noticed and said it was a good sign of his recovery. During some previous court dates, ONeal had appeared gaunt and been forced to wear a jail jumpsuit. There is no reason you cant turn your life around, Schwartz said. Im very proud of you. Youve done an outstanding job. Gov. wants Springsteen ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is calling on native son Bruce Springsteen to step up and help Atlantic City by performing at the new Revel casino on Labor Day weekend. The governor made the plea Tuesday during a tour of the new casino, which opens Monday. The facility wouldnt have been finished without state tax incentives. The governor views Revel as the centerpiece of an effort to revive the fortunes of Atlantic City, where the casino business has been on a long downward spiral. Bassist helps buy ambulance GOSHEN, Mass. An ambulance company that serves six rural western Massachusetts towns has purchased a new ambulance thanks to a $150,000 gift from the bass player for the hard rock band Staind. The gift from Johnny April enabled Highland Ambulance to buy a new vehicle to replace its aging 1998 model. Highland Ambulance director Michael Rock says the gift was a godsend. Rock tells The Recorderof Greenfield the old ambulance was nearing the end its useful life and the company would have been hard pressed affording a new one. M ESFIN F EKADU Associated Press NEW YORKS tylist June Ambrose helped remake the image of Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey as they were preparing major comebacks, but theres one icon she didnt get to remake Whitney Houston. Working with Houston wasnt a pipe dream for Ambrose. With the singer readying a return to the spotlight with the upcoming movie, Sparkle, and new music, it was a real possibility. But she died Feb. 11 on the eve of the Grammys at 48 of an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use as contributing factors. There were talks about it, Ambrose said in an interview Monday. I really wanted to do Whitney Houstons comeback. ... I just felt like Whitney and I ... would have been great together. Ambrose has already proven shes great with other A-listers: Her client list includes Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Jay-Z, Missy Elliott and Zoe Saldana, and she also was a stylist for The X-Factor. Jay-Zs been a longtime client and a friend. What I love about Jay is that he has such a natural swagger and charisma, and hes just as passionate about his music as I am my art, and we have such a mutual respect for what one another does, Ambrose said. Mary J. Blige, love working with her. ... Alicia Keys, too, especially when she was pregnant. It was such a pure, personal time. On her new VH1 show, Styled by June, the Antigua native helps struggling celebrities look their best, including actress and onetime fashionista Mischa Barton, female rappers Trina and Da Brat, and reality TV star and singer Aubrey ODay. The show airs on Mondays at 9:30 p.m. The Associated Press: Who else would you like to style? Ambrose: I like broken starlets. I love to fix things. ... I would love to get like a Courtney Love. Lindsay Lohan Id be brilliant with. AP: Whats it like getting celebrities to trust you when taking them out of their comfort zone? Ambrose: Celebrities naturally are quite defensive by nature. They have to protect themselves, theyre constantly being photographed and judged, and social media controls so much of how they feel about themselves. You know, theyre reading the blogs, the tabloids, and it starts to kind of eat away at their spirit and their confidence. ... I have to strip them down and build them back up, and the reason why I have to strip them down is I need them to see themselves, not the person they want to be, but the person that they are. Face that person, accept that person and then we deal with the alter ego. AP: When were you bitten by the fashion bug? Ambrose: I was smitten and bitten by fashion from inception. When I came out of my mothers womb I was like, Where are my designer diapers? I used to cut up my grandmothers curtains and designer dresses for my Barbie dolls. In preschool, I was like, I want to put on a fashion show, and I got all the parents together and I produced a fashion show. I was like 7 years old, like in kindergarten doing fashion shows. AP: What is the most common mistake people make when putting together an outfit? Ambrose: Fit is a factor. When you think about the s and the s (and) how structured fashion was: Thats why I say its the return of the lady and the dandy because people are starting to pay a lot more attention to fit. When a guy invests in a sports jacket, have it tailored if its not something that was couture to your body. ... Women, wear your foundation undergarments, even if youre skinny. Having the right foundation pieces, it helps you with your core, it helps you with that juxtaposition. Its like wearing a petticoat. ... And people also feel like they need to overaccessorize. You have to balance your bold. ... Head-to-toe leopard isnt necessary unless its a Halloween soiree youre going to. AP: What trends will we see this spring and fall? Ambrose: Both seasons are filled with color, theyre exciting, but whats wonderful about it is theres a lot of classic pieces. I think consumers are really looking for classic fashion that has punctuation, so theres a lot of play on texture, but the color is really whats exciting. Its very reminiscent of the s; you feel the Bianca Jagger, you feel the Diana Ross. For the fall, theyre more rich jewel tones; for the spring, a lot of sorbets. AP: You mentioned color, but the all-black ensemble will never fail, right? Ambrose: An all-black ensemble will never steer you wrong, even though blue is the new black. I feel like the kimono is the new cardigan. ... A black number will never steer you wrong. That depth will always keep you svelte. AP: Ive noticed more men wearing brown shoes. Is brown the new black? Ambrose: Youre seeing a lot of the oxford, cognac brown shoes its the new neutral for men. And another thing theyre doing is the sockless man; very retro. Ankle is the new sexy; ankle cleavage. Stylist talks shop Birthday Your leadership and executive abilities are likely to be far more pronounced in the year ahead than they ever were in the past.

Associated PressSAN DIEGO They took the Lorax, made of bronze, the thieves they came, and now hes gone. A 2-foot statue of Dr. Seuss Lorax character was stolen from the San Diego backyard garden of the 90year-old widow of the beloved author whose real name was Theodore Geisel. Audrey Geisel noticed the statue and its tree-stump base were missing from the garden and were likely stolen over the weekend. Property manager Carl Romero told U-T San Diego on Tuesday that he found footprints indicating the thieves had dragged the 300pound statue to an access road and lifted it over a fence. He had seen the statue Saturday afternoon, and Geisel noticed it was missing Monday morning. Audrey Geisels daughter Lark Grey Dimond-Cate cast two of the sculptures. One was the lone Seuss character to reside on the familys property overlooking the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla. The other sits at the Dr. Seuss National Memorial in the authors hometown, Springfield, Mass. Theodore Geisel died in 1991 at age 87. I want very badly to get our little Lorax back home where he belongs, DimondCate said. Wherever he is, hes scared, lonely and hungry. Hes not just a hunk of metal to us. He was a family pet. The Lorax has enjoyed special notoriety because of the recently released film version of Dr. Seusss 1971 environmental fable, in which the mustachioed main character speaks out for the Truffula trees against corporate greed, personified by the evil Once-ler. Dimond-Cate said she actually hopes the Lorax was stolen because of his newfound fame. Otherwise it could mean he was stolen for the bronze. I hope he hasnt been taken across the border into Tijuana for scrap, she said. Worst-case scenario, Ill get the foundry to create another one, but he wont be the same. Romero said the statue was stolen just before security cameras were installed, and few knew it was there. The family has called San Diego police. Romero said Audrey Geisel doesnt want to punish anyone and just wants the Lorax back. You cant sell it on eBay, he said. Thieves steal Lorax statue

This is the first year for the Biomedical Science Class of the Crystal River High Schools Health Academy. Crystal River High School health students get hands-on experience in biomedical course M ATTHEWB ECK Staff writerC rystal River High School science teacher Greg Biance said hes teaching pure science. Biance heads a high-tech biomedical course through the schools Health Academy and said its unlike any teaching hes done in his 28 years in the Citrus County School District. This is done through the STEM initiative, he said of the program designed to improve science, technology, engineering and math skills in students. Were trying to get more hands-on, applied, relative science instead of just taking theory, instead of not understanding what it means, he said. So this type of learning is the push, even at universities. This is the way teaching and learning should be. The Principles of Biomedical Science course is funded through a Race to the Top grant written by Gayle Nobles, coordinator of special academic programs for Citrus County School District. The biomedical course received about $200,000 for the class. Lecanto High School offers a similar grant-funded STEM initiative through the Project Lead the Way program, focusing on engineering. The programs are intended to lead students on a four-year study plan that will give them a leg up as freshmen in college. Biance said last summer he attended two weeks of training at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, where the course was outlined. Each summer, before the next school year starts, he will attend another two-week training. His 18 Health Academy students are freshmen who were hand-picked by Biance through an application process that included a letter written by the teens as well as references from their middle school teachers. Biance said his biomedical class looks 180-degrees different than his mainstream classes, because they are not held to the same constraints as his other classes. Here, I have no standards to 000ATWL DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleDrew Petrella gives his sister Olivia a ride in a rowboat Friday during a Night at the Museum in Mary Arnolds second-grade class at Pope John Paul II Catholic School. A night at the museum Reading, writing and rockin DAN CRAFT The Pantagraph BLOOMINGTON, Ill. S cool to be in school when the teacher rocks. Literally ... as hes doing now ... at your side thumping out the bass to Tom Pettys Runnin Down a Dream. So what if you werent even born when the song was a radio anthem in the summer of ? The rock of ages never grows old. It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down ... I had the radio on, I was drivin ... Laying down Dreams backbeat is 9-year-old drummer Joseph Dubravec; letting fly with the Pettyworthy licks is 10-year-old guitarist Chris Merica. Tom would be proud. Maybe even envious: Did he sound this good at 9? Or even 10? The teacher at Joe and Chris side, aka Mr. Ed, grins big. Then bigger. Meanwhile, he fills in the blanks with some steady bass and seasoned vocal. Less-polished results have been heard at venues packing cover charges. Workin on a mystery, goin wherever it leads ... Runnin down a dream ... As the man behind an array of rockprone music projects over the past decade or more, Mr. Ed Anderson knows a thing or two about runnin down dreams from long-gone bands like Brother Jed, to the recent climax of Backyard Tire Fire, to the currently percolating Anders Edison Youngsters become real guitar heroes at music performance school See ROCK / Page C2 See HEALTH / Page C2

and Magic Box. The latest dream finds Anderson now the headmaster of Bloomington Rock School, downstate Illinois first full-time academy devoted to the art of amperage, and more. Housed in a downtown storefront, the school fits like a guitar case: exposed brick walls to absorb the tidal waves of sound (sometimes theyre almost too loud for me, deadpans Ed), and high ceilings and polished wood floors to give it that rarefied air of academia. Its been a real fun process, says Anderson, who placed Backyard Tire Fire on what he calls an indefinite hiatus late last year partly to focus on the school, partly because life was moving on for the maturing band, including brother Matts impending nuptials. Its one of those things thats at a good place now, he adds. I get to be at the school two to three days a week, and then I still get to play three to four nights a week. Assisting Ed are his wife, Kim, who serves as the operations manager, and old crony Tony SanFilippo, owner-operator of Bloomingtons Oxide Lounge Recording and Bloomington Rock Schools percussion guru. The curriculum is comprised of two full courses designed for kids 10 to 17, Introduction to Rock and Rock Performance. The latter course culminates in a public performance at a major Twin Cities venue as The Rock School Band: like a recent Castle Theatre gig, in which the band opened for Farm A Geddon and Anders Edison. Also offered at the school are private lessons on guitar, bass and drums, and songwriting seminars, all of which are open to budding musicians of any age. Currently, the Rock Schools demographics range from to 50s, says Anderson, who confesses, at first I didnt think Id be teaching as much I hadnt before but I discovered I could do it and I liked it. On a recent Thursday night, school is in full session, with the smaller Introduction to Rock class kicking off the evening in laid-back but highly productive style. In short order, a trio comprised of Ed, Chris and Joe plow through a classic rock regimen including the Stones Miss You, the aforementioned Petty anthem, Steppenwolfs Magic Carpet Ride, Stevie Ray Vaughans Pride and Joy and of course a little Backyard Tire Fire for good measure (The Places We Lived). There are occasional timeouts for Mr. Ed to offer suggestions (Play it straight, the way you were doing it last week, Make it a little dirtier) and fielding responses (Joe: Thats a lot harder than I thought.) Chris and Joe not acquainted before the class began now work in tandem like a preteen Richards-Jagger. Ive had to practice a lot Id never taken lessons before, says Joe. Ive improved more than 110 percent. Joes dad Paul had his reservations about the school in the early going. I was apprehensive over the stereotypical rock thing that theyd be using heavy metal to corrupt my child. Instead, the opposite has proved true: The practical learning has really worked, and he really gets into that. If I had to put it into a single sentence, says Joe, it would be that Ed is a very LIVELY person to have as a teacher. Chris: And hes a really good guitar player, and pretty cool. Later in the evening, its time for the slightly older Rock Performance crew to move in five young men ready, as the KISS anthem theyll soon perform goes, to Rock & Roll All Night. They are Nick Gizzi, 14, Normal, guitar; Eric Burns, 18, Bloomington, guitar/vocals; Nick Saathoff, 12, Hudson, drums/vocals; Ricky Williams, 16, Bloomington, bass; and Will Bauer, 13, Bloomington, guitar/vocals. The boys are down to the rehearsal wire for tonights big Castle Theatre show. Teacher: We really need to work on the beginnings and the endings of our tunes. Make good eye contact to help communicate the songs. Lets keep rolling like were doing it for real. OK, give me a big Hey! HEY!! The Bloomington Rock School is on a definite roll. You know, says Anderson between classes, playing with these guys brings it back to where I was when I started playing and why it was I started playing in the first place. I love it.

I just have pure science. And I just love it because I dont have those restrictions. Its what science is supposed to be. He says for the most part the students do their own work at their own, advanced pace. Most all of them are driven and self motivated, Biance said. The stuff I see here in this course I saw in college. Alan Ivory, 14, is one of the freshman students selected for the advanced class. Id rather go to this class because, one, I have the best teacher, and two, because you can really work at your own pace, he said. If youre done 30 minutes into the class you can go and dig deeper, researching more about what were learning about. While the students work with advanced equipment supplied through grant money, much of their work is completed on laptop computers through Internetbased curriculum. Ivory said that one major difference between the class and his other mainstream courses is the class structure. With this class you dont hear the teacher talk the entire class, like in math or some other class. Nobody likes lectures. Really, with this class you teach and learn yourself. During the year, Biance will lead the students through an aggressive lesson plan covering different medical subjects. The subjects include the human heart, diabetes, human body systems, sickle-cell disease, hyper-cholesterolemia, infectious diseases and medical inventions Ivory said the class is helping him focus on a specific career field later in life. I came into this class with the idea of anything helping patients. But Ive narrowed it down to physical therapy, pharmacy and endocrinology, the freshman said. So its getting a lot narrower. By next year it will be narrowed down to two of those and my junior year it will be narrowed down to one. He said that by his senior year will have a much clearer picture of what his focus will be in college. Biance says that he can see the students of today are different in some ways than students from years past. Ive been teaching a long time 30 years total. And the traditional way of teaching was stories and content and kids were interested years ago, he said. Kids are different now. They have so much touch and are exposed to so much technology. Its their entertainment. He says his way of teaching has also evolved with the times. So, whats happened is when I used to do embellishing stories, some classes it works for still in this modern day, in some classes it doesnt, he said. You can see some kids zoning out. Ive always believed in variety. As long as you keep a lot of variety in the classroom at least it will hit on a cylinder that somebodys going to get. So, thats why Ive always been a hands-on kind of teacher because I know that works. But the curriculum is very driven with the theory. So, what happens is that we teach the structure, one, two, three and we want them to think at level four and five. But with this course they do the reverse. They throw them into stuff that is highly technical. Biance said the biomedical class follows Anna Garcia, a 30-something-yearold, fictional female character that has been found dead on the floor of her home. The students utilize information from the scene and begin researching a possible cause of death. Each small group is given a certain angle and then they give an analysis. They go in and research, what is this, what is that, he said. Then they sit there in their group and discuss it and project their analysis to me, he said. Each group took pieces and analyzed different things. When they finished and they put together the scenarios, I went thats awesome!
