PAGE A4 TODAY & Thursday morning Plane crashes into Deland supermarket Associated PressDELAND A man is heard yelling Get out! Get out! in 911 tapes released Tuesday from the crash of a small experimental plane into a Florida grocery store that left five people injured. Emergency dispatch tapes captured the panic as customers fled the store Monday evening. The plane plunged through the roof of a Publix supermarket in DeLand, about 40 miles north of Orlando. Publix is on fire! a woman from inside the supermarket said in a 911 call. The store is on fire! OK. We got to go. Three customers were hurt, and two people aboard the plane were hospitalized in Orlando. All of the injuries came from burns, said Luke Schiada, an investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board. The amphibious Sea Wind 3000 plane encountered problems shortly after taking off from the DeLand Municipal Airport, less than two miles from the shopping center. Investigators werent sure where the plane was heading. One 911 caller said the engine began sputtering. The next thing you know, it went down nose first, she said. The plane is made of composite material and was amateur-built in 2002. It seats four people, but only two people from Illinois were aboard, said Schiada. DeLand Police spokesman Lt. Jack Waples identified the men as Kim Presbrey and Thomas Rhoades. Fire consumed most of the plane, which plunged through the roof and landed between two aisles in the middle of the store. The plane didnt have a black Associated Press First responders from DeLand Fire Department, Volusia County Fire Services, EVAC and DeLand Police Department work the scene of a small plane crash Monday at the Publix Supermarket on East International Speedway Boulevard in DeLand.

He says his home and land have been in his familys name for decades and the state has no right to take them. Losing a legacy NEWS BRIEF Road work to close Brandywine The contractor upgrading County Road 486 will reconstruct Brandywine Terrace between Norvell Bryant Highway and Silver Hill Lane beginning Monday. The reconstruction will require the total closure of Brandywine Terrace for about one week. Roadside message boards will advise the traveling public about the closure. Detour signs will direct traffic to use North Pinecone Avenue. From staff reports M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterCITRONELLE Sheriffs deputies didnt show up at Violet Hamiltons house Tuesday morning, but her son was waiting if they did. John Wayne Hamilton is doing all he can to stop deputies from removing his mother from the home site that has been in the family since the late 1800s. His grandfather, Willie Hamilton, settled the property by squatters rights, John Hamilton said. He showed a visitor an old photograph of his grandfathers buggy, tied to a mule. He used to drive a donkey through the woods to Inverness, Crystal River and everywhere else, Hamilton said. The state Department of Environmental Protection, which holds title to much of the land surrounding the Hamilton tracts off Dunklin Avenue north of Crystal River, said it took the property in 1938 because Hamiltons grandfather wasnt paying taxes. John Hamilton doesnt dispute that took place. But he said that in 1946, his grandfather repurchased the property 55,000 acres at the time and most of it has been divided among kin since then. Some of the property was resold, some kept in the family. We own the property, Hamilton said. Ive got the paperwork to back up anything I say. The state sued in 2007 to clear the title to 82 Hamilton residential lots. Hamilton, his brother Donald Ray, and their mother, Violet, have worked since then trying to prove the state wrong. They produced the original 1946 deed showing Willie Hamilton as the rightful owner, along with several other deeds and documents. Judge Patricia Thomas, however, ruled in 2009 for the state. The Hamiltons appealed, and the district court of appeal in February 2011 affirmed Thomas ruling. State officials say the Hamiltons legally own property adjacent to Local residents facing eviction from family homestead Donald Ray Hamilton says he and his family have the right to be in their home. See LEGACY / Page A2 Three men sentenced in local sex crimes A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS Circuit Judge Ric Howard sentenced three people to lengthy prison terms Tuesday for various sex-related crimes against minors. One was a fugitive recently picked up by U.S. Marshals, the other a Williston man who reportedly sexually battered a 7year-old relative. The fugitive and the third person sentenced were all ensnared in a multi-county Internet sex sting involving children. A fourth mans fate will be decided in May. Jefferey Alan Puskaric Jr., 22, of 13817 N.E. 54th Place, Williston, was handed a 25-year sentence on charges that included sexual battery of a person younger than 12 years old and lewd and lascivious molestation. Puskaric was arrested in November of last year for the crimes after the 7-year-old told her mother Puskaric was inappropriate with her during his stays in their home. Puskaric reportedly showed the girl pornographic images and told the victim he intended to do other things to the child when she reached 18. She said the battery began when she was 5 years old. According to investigators, when Puskaric was initially questioned, he denied the Jeffery Puskaric Jr. Nestor RiveraRojas See CRIME / Page A2 OPINION: EDITORIAL, PAGE A12 Voters are urged to continue valuing students by approving the requested ... levy ... COMING TOMORROW: Art on displayYoung artists from Lecanto High School will show off their creativity and hard work./ Thursday Associated PressWASHINGTON Mitt Romney has won Republican primaries in Washington, D.C., and Maryland, drawing closer to the GOP presidential nomination while rival Rick Santorum's prospects fade. Romney also was looking for a victory later Tuesday in Wisconsin. The former Massachusetts governor is heavily favored to clinch the GOP nomination by June. Santorum has vowed not to abandon his bid despite a string of losses. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul also remain in the race. Neither is a threat to Romney. There were 95 Republican National Convention delegates at stake for the day, including 42 in Wisconsin, the only one of the three contests that a fading Rick Santorum seriously contested. Interviews with voters leaving Republican polling places in Maryland and Wisconsin showed an electorate more concerned with a candidates ability to ability to defeat Obama than with the strength of his conservatism, his moral character or his stand on the issues. Similar soundings in earlier states have consistently worked to Romneys advantage. Voters in both states were less apt to be born again or evangelical Christians than in most previous contests 34 percent in Wisconsin and 32 percent in Maryland. Based on earlier contests, that, too, suggested an advantage for Romney. Increasingly, Romney and many senior figures in his party have begun behaving as if the primaries are an afterthought, hoping to pivot to the fall campaign and criticism of Obama. He gets full credit or blame for whats happened in this economy and whats happened to gasoline prices under his watch and whats happened to our schools and whats happened to our military forces, Romney said of the president while campaigning in Waukesa, Wis. Obama said things could be worse and predicted they would be if Romney and Republicans got their way.

allegations, but eventually changed his story. He reportedly said the last incident occurred about a month and a half before his arrest. Puskaric also was given lifetime probation. Nestor Rivera-Rojas, 35, of Orlando, was nabbed in Operation Cyber Guardian, a weeklong undercover sting last July that led to the arrest of several people who used the Internet to solicit sex from children and then traveled to Citrus County with the intention of engaging in sexual activity with these supposed minors. Tuesday, Rivera-Rojas was sentenced to 63 months and five years probation, according to prosecutor Brian Trehy. He said Rivera-Rojas was given a week to attend to family matters at the request of his attorney, Assistant Public Defender Luke Waatti. Should he fail to appear, his sentence will go up to 20 years, according to Trehy. Nicholas Wagner, 21, of Tampa, was sentenced to 42 months and five years probation for his involvement in Operation Grim Reaper, another Internet sting done in the fall of 2010. After Wagner made bail, he disappeared. According to officials, to avoid capture by law enforcement, Wagner changed his looks and went underground. In early March, his luck ran out when U.S. Marshals caught up with him in Brandon. The charges against Wagner were use of a computer to lure a child into sexual activity, using a computer to solicit a parent in order to engage in sexual activity with a child and traveling to solicit/seduce a child into sexual activity. Sheriffs offices from Citrus, Polk, Sumter, Marion and Alachua counties were involved in the initiative, along with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The operations involved undercover detectives posing as juvenile males or females, or parents and/or siblings of minors actively looking for sexual instruction for the children. Detectives logged several hours on several chat rooms frequented by children and posted numerous personal ads on e-commerce websites. Individually, several of the suspects reportedly arrived at the undercover house with items such as pornography, a camera, Viagra, a 12-pack of beer, a cherry Slushy and a McDonalds Happy Meal. Srirama Gonzalez, 25, of Alachua, was also nabbed in one of the stings and pleaded no contest Tuesday. His sentencing has been deferred until May 14. We are very satisfied that fair sentences were imposed in these cases, Trehy said Tuesday. Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline. com.

They offered to give some lands to the Hamiltons in exchange for the Hamiltons vacating state lands. The Hamiltons refused to settle, according to a DEP spokeswoman. The state then decided to take the public lands. In mid March, Thomas signed an eviction order. The order was attached to a telephone pole and deputies showed up one day last week but no one was home, Hamilton said. A deputy arrived Monday with another eviction notice. This one said the family had until midnight to leave the premises or deputies would remove them. Hamilton, 54, said he doesnt know what will happen when the deputies show up today, or the day after that. But he doesnt plan to walk away. Im not going to go anywhere, he said. They can go ahead and arrest me. Hamiltons grandfather died in 1966. John Hamilton grew up on the homestead, which used to include parts of where Dunklin Avenue is now paved.

Around THE STATE Citrus County Police searching for suspect who fled The Citrus County Sheriffs Office had to call up the helicopter and K9 units to search for a driver who led police on a short-lived chase Monday night before rolling his vehicle and fleeing on foot, according to officials. Sheriffs office deputies were investigating a disturbance at Walgreens on U.S. 19 at about 10:41 p.m. when an SUV with two passengers drove off at a high rate of speed. A deputy followed the vehicle, which accelerated through an intersection and ended up rolling at the intersection of Northeast First Street and Northeast Fourth Avenue. The two passengers in the vehicle were uninjured, but the driver fled. The sheriffs office helicopter and K9 units helped in the search, but the driver had not been apprehended as of press time Tuesday. According to the CCSO, the search was conducted to check on the drivers well-being. The passengers, according CCSO, were too intoxicated to help deputies with their investigation Monday night.

Pembroke Pines Mower catches fire, injuring landscaper Officials are working to determine what caused a lawnmower to burst into flames, severely burning the commercial landscaper who was riding it. Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue spokesman Tom Gallagher told the South Florida Sun Sentinel the lawnmower caught fire in the middle of a road Monday afternoon. Gallagher said the 27-yearold landscaper suffered second-degree burns over 40 percent of his body. The landscaper was airlifted to a Miami hospitals burn center.From staff and wire reports Page A3 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterOak Village Association will request an amendment to the Land Development Code on Thursday at a meeting of the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission to build a community facility. The application concerns a portion of a parcel of land lying south of West Oak Park Boulevard and north of Mimosa Court West in Sugarmill Woods. The change requested is from planned residential development nature belt to planned residential development community facility. Part of the site contains a drainage retention area that would remain. The applicant is requesting approval to construct a 4,000-square-foot community facility building with a 30-foot-by-47-foot deck to use as an office for the Oak Village Property Owners Association. Staff will recommend approval with conditions. An application to subdivide 215 acres at a site across from Castaways Bar and Grill on U.S. 19 in Crystal River will be presented. Inverness attorney Clark Stillwell will represent Tanner Trust LLC in a request for a variance from the Land Development Code to allow for a minor subdivision fronting a private road that is not located within a platted subdivision. Specifically, the applicant will ask to subdivide nine lots off West Larue Denise Drive in an area designated for rural residential mobile homes. The smallest lot proposed is about 10.16 acres and the largest lot would be 51.17 acres, with a median size of 21.51 acres. The applicant has stated that it is being subdivided to have enough area to build a structure without the need of a setback variance. Staff will recommend approval with conditions for the variance application. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

Oak Village group seeks to build community center C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterA pril is Jazz Appreciation Month, and to celebrate it, Norman Bernard and the sounds of Southern Exposure will perform at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in downtown Inverness. This is the final performance of a four-part Jazz at the Museum concert series. The band will perform an array of American jazz classics in its show, Made in America, at 7 p.m. on April 5. The concert, which is sponsored by the Citrus County Historical Society, is on the second floor of the museum. Doors open at 6 p.m. The Deco Caf will provide appetizers, and a cash bar will be available. Born in America, known around the world, John Grannan, president of the society, said. Its about a jazz creation that originated in New Orleans. Norman Bernard has renamed his band The Creole Jazz Cats for the performance, following the American/New Orleans theme. He said Born in America and enjoyed worldwide was a better description, as described by the Smithsonian, which originated Jazz Appreciation Month. Grannan said Norman Bernard is renowned for his talents on the flugelhorn and trumpet. Some of his band members include Nelson Dellamaggiore on saxophone, flute and clarinet; Gary Kay on keyboard; Ron Wresler on bass; J.R. Farley on percussion; and vocalist Kim Evans. Montreals Denis Cabana is the featured performer, who he said is an accomplished trombonist and vocalist. Its an opportunity to see some world-class music here in Citrus County, he added. People are always amazed. Tickets are $25, and the proceeds benefit the museum and its educational programs.

Americas own musical genre honored during April N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Here comes the sun again. First it was solar-powered trash receptacles downtown. Now get ready for solar-powered electronic speed-monitoring devices around the citys elementary and middle schools. At Tuesdays Inverness city council meeting, City Manager Frank DiGiovanni told the council that the Florida Department of Transportation contacted the citys public works department about installing the devices within a two-block area around each school. When people realize how fast theyre really going, it slows them down, DiGiovanni said. This is a safety initiative first and with solar power, a green issue as well. Also, it will reduce the cost of having deputies all over the place. It will cost the city $30,000. DiGiovanni added that the city is looking into installing these devices when it renovates Forest Drive and Bicycle Boulevard on North Apopka. As for the green stripe on downtown city streets left over from the St. Patricks Day parade, DiGiovanni sheepishly, and tongue-incheek, said he hoped it would be gone by next years parade in time to paint a new one. The public works department purchased the wrong type of paint, and is awaiting a biodegradable solvent that will remove it. As DiGiovanni told the Chronicle editorial board last week, Its definitely embarrassing. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com. Green the color of the day at council State BRIEFS Fasano making bid for Pasco House seat TALLAHASSEE Veteran lawmaker Mike Fasano, who represents part of westernmost Citrus County, said Tuesday he will seek to return to the Florida House, where he started his legislative career nearly 18 years ago, when his stint in the Senate ends. The New Port Richey Republican, whose 10-year Senate tenure ends this fall because of term limits, has filed to run in the newly drawn District 36 House seat, which picks up portions of western Pasco County. Fasano told the News Service of Florida he expects to face two other Republican challengers for the partys endorsement. They are Hudson businessman Michael Kennedy and Jim Mathieu, the Pasco Republican Party vice chairman. Over the past few years, Fasano has fallen out of favor with Senate Republican leadership on a number of issues, most recently being stripped of his chairmanship of the Senate Criminal and Civil Justice Subcommittee after he bucked Senate President Mike Haridopolos, RMerritt Island, over prison privatization and property insurance reform. Fasano, who emerged as a populist criticizing insurance companies, said he doesnt think his independent streak will come back to haunt him. Fasano said he expects Republican Party leaders to stay out of the fray until the primary is over.FEA challenges state on performance pay ruleTALLAHASSEE Arguing against what it calls unbridled discretion, the Florida Education Association has challenged part of the states plans for carrying out a controversial 2011 law that includes teacher performance pay. The FEA and two teachers last week filed a challenge in the Division of Administrative Hearings, arguing that state education officials would overstep their legal authority in determining how school districts evaluate teachers. The case centers on the somewhat arcane details of a rule approved last week by the state Board of Education. Such rules are commonly used by state agencies to carry out laws and can be subject to legal challenges. The rule challenge is another chapter in a long-running dispute between the FEA and the state about a 2011 law dubbed the Student Success Act. That dispute also includes a pending circuitcourt lawsuit in which the FEA argues the law violates constitutional collectivebargaining rights. Anthony Demma, an FEA attorney, said the Division of Administrative hearings case does not challenge the overall law. Instead, it seeks to have an administrative law judge determine that the rule is invalid, which could force the state to make changes in the way it plans to oversee school district evaluations of teachers. Counties mulling lawsuit about Medicaid payments The Florida Association of Counties board could decide April 12 whether to file a lawsuit challenging a legislative move to collect tens of millions of dollars in Medicaid payments from counties. Cragin Mosteller, an association spokeswoman, said Tuesday that a task force of county attorneys is studying a possible legal challenge. Legislative leaders argue counties owe back payments, but counties say the states billing system is badly flawed. Gov. Rick Scott last week signed a bill that would require counties to pay the money, though he also said the Agency for Health Care Administration would work with counties to make sure bills are accurate. WellCare agrees to $137.5M settlement TAMPA Federal prosecutors said a Tampa-based health care provider has agreed to pay $137.5 million to settle four lawsuits involving fraudulent Medicare and Medicaid claims in nine states. The U.S. Attorney in Tampa announced the settlement Tuesday. The suits claimed WellCare Health Plans Inc. falsely inflated the amount it claimed to be spending on medical care to avoid returning the money to Medicaid and other programs. The suits also accused the company of knowingly retaining overpayments received and falsifying data that misrepresented the medical conditions of patients and treatments they received. WellCare will make fixed payments, plus interest, over three years to the federal government and to Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, New York and Ohio. WellCare CEO Alec Cunningham said the company is pleased matters are fully resolved. Residents can register for prison alertsTALLAHASSEE Floridians can register telephone and fax numbers to get automatic alerts from the Department of Corrections about prison escapes or other emergencies. The agency announced the alert notification service Tuesday. Residents can call a toll-free hotline 866-358-5977 to register for alerts from a prison, work camp or other facility. Prison escapes are rare the last was in 2005. If it happens, though, participants will receive a description of the escapee and other information. Corrections Secretary Ken Tucker said that will contribute to community safety and help prison officials because citizens can be additional eyes and ears to help catch escapees. The system also will be used for such emergencies as Amber and Silver alerts for missing children and seniors. From wire reports

SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS The Citrus County Sheriffs Office cited 16 people and made an unexpected arrest in two recent sting operations this time targeting vendors who sell tobacco and alcohol to underage youths. Operations Jail Bait I and II were conducted in the latter part of February and in March, according to CCSO Spokeswoman Gail Tierney. Tierney said the sheriffs offices sexual predator unit detectives and members of the Tactical Impact Unit joined forces with underage informants and made controlled purchases of tobacco or beer products at stores on the east and west sides of the county. These operations come on the heels of the agencys other sting efforts to catch would-be Internet sex predators seeking dalliances with minors. Those operations netted more than three dozen people who traveled to a sting house in the county from other parts of the state to meet and have sex with supposed minors. During the recent operations in Jail Bait II, which was conducted March 9, deputies hit 16 stores on the west side and 14 on the east side, according to officials. Three misdemeanor notice-to-appear citations were issued on the west side. While at the RaceTrac station in Homosassa, detectives unexpectedly arrested James Shye, 26, who had reportedly been acting suspiciously. Shye is facing multiple charges including carrying a concealed weapon (a .380-caliber semiautomatic pistol with a loaded magazine), possession of a controlled substance, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. His total bond was set at $31,000. On the east side, officers wrote six citations. During Operation Jail Bait I on Wednesday, Feb. 22, detectives visited 14 stores on the west side and issued two citations. According to Tierney, the store employees cited either sold tobacco products to juveniles younger than 18 years of age or sold alcoholic products to people under the legal age of 21. In the majority of cases, no photo identification was reportedly checked or it was checked incorrectly. Tierney said the sheriffs office will continue compliance checks to drive home the importance of checking identification information carefully and not selling alcohol and tobacco products to underage customers. 87 65 0.00 SO YOU KNOW For more information about arrests made by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, go to www.sheriff citrus.org and click on the Public Information link, then on Arrest Reports.

Simpson in the Nevada trial that led to the celebrity football stars conviction on armed robbery and kidnapping charges, is suing Simpsons Florida-based lead attorney in the case, claiming he was stiffed on promised fees. Gabriel Grasso alleges in a civil breach of contract lawsuit that he was promised $250,000 to serve as local attorney following Simpsons arrest in September 2007. But he said Yale Galanter only paid him $15,000. Galanter told The Associated Press that he hadnt been served with the lawsuit and couldnt comment on it. But he said he intends to fight. You can say anything you want in a lawsuit. Proving it is another matter, Galanter said Tuesday. Gabe Grasso got paid everything he was supposed to get paid commensurate with his skill level, his ability level and his responsibilities as local counsel in Las Vegas. The 17-page lawsuit, filed Friday in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas, seeks unspecified damages in excess of $50,000. It cites extensive and time consuming proceedings between Simpsons arrest in September 2007 and trial a year later. Galanter, who is licensed in Florida but not Nevada, engaged Grasso as a Nevada lawyer and obtained permission from the trial judge to take part in the Simpson case in Las Vegas. Grassos lawyer, Joshua Tomsheck, said Tuesday that Grasso did the lions share of the work. Grasso declined comment. They had a legal, binding agreement, Tomsheck said.

Fri. 8-5pm Sat. 9-1pm box but investigators may be able to use the planes GPS system to learn more about what happened, Schiada said. Initial reports indicated the problem was mechanical, DeLand Mayor Robert Apgar told the Orlando Sentinel The pilot and co-pilot were both amazingly able to get out of the plane and out of the store, Pat Kuehn of the Volusia County Fire Services told local station WFTV. Lisa Cordova said she was thrown to the floor when the plane crashed into the meat department of the Publix in DeLand, about 40 miles north of Orlando. It was like something had exploded in the store, Cordova told the Orlando Sentinel after being released from Florida Hospital DeLand. The roof just started shaking. All the lights went out. Everybody was just screaming. People inside the store didnt know what had happened until they made their way through the smoke and got outside, Cordova said. The store has suffered heavy damage inside. When firefighters arrived they encountered heavy black smoke and flames and it took over an hour to get the fire under control, Kuehn said. Cordova said she saw one man trying to extinguish flames on his leg before someone pushed her out of the store. He was just pulling layers and layers of his skin off his leg, said Cordova. Someone grabbed me and pushed me out of the store. I was like, I cant leave him there. Two other customers were expected to be treated and released, Florida Hospital DeLand spokeswoman Diane Maimone said. Police identified the other customers as April Morris of DeLand and Stetson University student Brendan Beitler. Both were hospitalized in stable condition, police said. Beitlers father told WFTV that his son said the explosion sent a wall of fire through the store. The flames singed the hair on the college students arms and set his leg on fire. He literally said, I am on fire; somebody help me, Douglas Beitler said. He said his son was airlifted to an Orlando hospital but he would be OK. WFTV also reported that Publix employees who declined to be identified described seeing the pilot and a passenger climb from the plane with their clothing on fire. A manager in the meat department was able to put out the fire in their clothes and rush them outside for help, the station reported. Bystanders said the plane showed signs of trouble moments before it hit the roof of the supermarket. The plane had taken off from the DeLand Municipal Airport, less than two miles from the shopping center, DeLand Police Sgt. Chris Estes said. A spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration said the agency did not provide air traffic services for the flight and had no information on the plane, its flight or those aboard. CRASH Continued from Page A1 Press, he said a Housepassed budget written by Republicans was antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity and upward mobility for everybody whos willing to work for it ... It is a prescription for decline. When he wasnt focusing his rhetoric on Obama, Romney prodded Santorum to quit the race, suggesting a refusal to do so could cost the party the election in November. The right thing for us, I think, is to get a nominee as soon as we can and be able to focus on Barack Obama, Romney said in an interview with Fox News. You have to remember that it was Ross Perot that allowed Bill Clinton to win in 1992, he added, a reference to the Texan who ran as an independent that year. There was no immediate response from Santorum. He all but conceded defeat in advance in Wisconsin, retreating to Mars, Pa., for an election night appearance in his home state. Wisconsin was the fourth industrial state to vote in a little more than a month after Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, a string that Romney has exploited to gain momentum as well as a growing delegate lead in the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. The former Massachusetts governor won a close Michigan primary on Feb. 28, then an even closer one in Ohio a week later, followed by a convincing victory in Illinois on March 20. At each turn, he was backed by his own robust, well-financed organization as well as a deep-pocketed super PAC that assured him of an overwhelming advantage in television advertising. In Wisconsin, Romney and the super PAC, Restore Our Future, spent roughly $3 million on television ads compared to about $850,000 for Santorum and the Red, White and Blue Fund, a super PAC that supports the former Pennsylvania senator. As was the case in Michigan and Ohio, private polling showed Romney trailing in Wisconsin a few weeks before the vote. But he overtook his rival in public surveys as the televised attacks took their toll. The surveys of voters in Marylands and Wisconsins GOP presidential primaries were conducted for AP and the television networks by Edison Research. They included preliminary results among 735 voters interviewed Tuesday as they left polling places at 25 randomly selected sites in Maryland, and among 1,063 Wisconsin voters as they left 35 polling places across that state. Results from Maryland had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points; it was 4 points for the Wisconsin survey. There was no survey in Washington. Associated Press Winifred ONeill, 97, cast her ballot at a polling place during a primary election Tuesday as her daughter Peggy ONeill, right, looks on in Frederick, Md. Maryland, a state likely to get scant attention from the Republican presidential nominee this fall because of the Democrats clear edge in voter registration, is drawing the attention of the four GOP candidates Tuesday as they vie for the states 37 delegates.

Associated PressANKARA, Turkey Neslisah Osmanoglu, an Ottoman princess who married an Egyptian prince and was twice forced into exile when both royal households were abolished, has died. She was 91. Neslisah Sultan, or Princess Neslisah, died in Istanbul on Monday, according to her nephew, Abdulhamid Kayihan Osmanoglu. He didnt give the cause of death, but new reports said it was a heart attack. A funeral ceremony was being held Tuesday for the princess, who was the oldest member of the Ottoman dynasty. Neslisah Sultan was born in Istanbul on Feb. 4, 1921, two years before the Turkish Republic replaced the Ottoman Empire, which had ruled Turkey, parts of the Middle East and eastern Europe for 600 years. Her grandfather, the last Ottoman Sultan Vahdettin, and all other members of the dynasty were sent into exile in 1924, and the princess spent her childhood and adolescence in Nice, France, before moving to Egypt. Ottoman princesses were traditionally married to members of Muslim royal families, and in 1940, Neslisah Sultan married Egyptian Prince Muhammed Abdel Monem. Prince Monem headed a regency committee that ruled from July 1952 to June 1953, when the new rulers of Egypt turned the country into a republic. The royal couple were placed under house arrest, accused of being part of an international plot against the Egyptian government of Gamal Abdel Nasser, but acquitted and forced to leave the country. In 1952, the Turkish government allowed female members of the Ottoman family to return to Turkey, and the prince and princess moved to Istanbul in 1957. Neslisah Sultan is survived by a son, daughter and a grandson.

Family members say Denmark, who was the worlds oldest practicing physician when she retired at age 103, died Sunday in Athens. She was 114. Associated Press Neslisah Osmanoglu, an Ottoman princess who married an Egyptian prince and was twice forced into exile when both royal households were abolished, is pictured in an undated photo. Osmanoglu died in Istanbul on Monday. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Peter Douglas, the longtime head of the California Coastal Commission who spent decades fighting to preserve 1,100 miles of the states coastline, has died. He was 69. Douglas died Sunday at his sisters home in the desert resort town of La Quinta surrounded by family and friends, said commission spokeswoman Sarah Christie. Douglas, who had been battling lung cancer, retired in November from the agency he founded. He was a remarkable person and a wonderful spirit, Christie said. In the 1970s, Douglas co-authored a ballot initiative that created the coastal commission, and he later helped draft legislation that would become the nations most stringent coastal protections. Douglas tenure was not without controversy. He often sparred with developers and property owners, and he weathered nearly a dozen attempts to unseat him over the years, Douglas is survived by his former wife, two sons and a sister and brother. Peter Douglas, coastal crusader, dies at 69 Centenarian who became worlds oldest doctor dies at 114 Associated PressATLANTA Dr. Leila Denmark, the worlds oldest practicing physician when she retired at age 103, died Sunday in Athens, her family members said. She was 114. Denmark became the first resident physician at Henrietta Egleston Hospital for Children in Atlanta when it opened in 1928, said her grandson, Steven Hutcherson of Atlanta. She also admitted the first patient at the hospital, now part of Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta. She loved helping children, and it showed in the way she would turn to the next family waiting to see her, Hutcherson said. Denmark began her pediatrics practice in her home in Atlanta in 1931 and continued until her retirement in 2001. That year, she earned the distinction of being the worlds oldest practicing physician, said Robert Young, senior consultant for gerontology for Guinness World Records. She was also the worlds fourth-oldest living person when she died, Young said. Throughout her career, she always kept her office in or near her home, where children and their parents would show up at all hours in need of care, family members said. She treated some of Atlantas poorest children as a volunteer at the Central Presbyterian Baby Clinic near the state capitol in Atlanta, said her daughter, Mary Hutcherson of Athens. Mill workers and other poor people who had no other way to get medical care would bring their sick children to the clinic. Denmark loved her volunteer work at the clinic, just as she loved seeing patients in her home, her daughter said. That enduring love of her work was a key to her long life, along with eating right, family members said. She absolutely loved practicing medicine more than anything else in the world, said another grandson,Dr. James Hutcherson of Evergreen, Colo. She never referred to practicing medicine as work.

We want to keep you informed about the excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always ha s been, to provide to you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is obtained from the Floridan Aquifer by three wells. We use chlorination and fluoridation for treatment. In 2011 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are 12 potential sources of contamination identified for this system with moderate susceptibility levels The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp This report shows our water quality results and what they mean. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Keith M ullins (Project Manager) at (352) 795-3199. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utili ty. If you want to learn more, please contact our office during normal business hours, Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The City of Crystal River routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Fe deral and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of ou r monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011, and presented in th is report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms weve provided the following definitions: Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking wat er. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which the re is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or oth er requirements that a water system must follow. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byprod ucts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations wi th high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Sta ge 2 DBPR. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinkin g water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminan ts. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. Millirem per year (mrem/yr): measure of radiation absorbed by the body. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l): one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion p arts by weight of the water sample. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l): one part by weight of ranalyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): measure of the radioactivity in water. As you can see we exceeded the MCL for iron. This is a secondary contaminate and poses no health ris ks. We are sampling further to see if any treatment modifications may need to be made. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Crystal River is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control t he variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize t he potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concern ed about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing metho ds, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov /safewater/lead. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, pon ds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves natura lly occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, s eptic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from ur ban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-prod ucts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas productio n and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regu lations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amount s of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a hea lth risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environme ntal Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Im munocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care provide rs. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbi ological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We at the City of Crystal River would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually impr ove the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water.

Seems like a good idea until lightning strikes and the group wins. Then the future involves not only luxury, but also lawsuits. Numerous group winners have been sued by people claiming to have pitched in for the ticket, creating messy fights over what money will be left once the attorneys are paid. And most state lotteries dont give much official guidance on how to avoid such problems. On Monday, rumors swirled about the three people holding winning tickets from the record-breaking $656 million Mega Millions drawing Friday night. Kansas, Illinois and Maryland each have a winner. But as of Monday night, no one individual or group had yet stepped forward.The New York Postreported that one potential winner in Maryland was a McDonalds employee who claimed to hold the winning ticket as an individual, but also bought tickets for several people as part of a restaurant pool. If the woman does indeed have a winning ticket, it could trigger just the latest group lottery lawsuit. Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett says the agency doesnt put out any information for groups, though she recommends friends and colleagues who play together come up with a system, including copying and distributing the group tickets to pool members and making a list of people who are participating. That way theres no confusion or mistaking it, she said. In Illinois, where one of the three winning tickets was purchased in the small town of Red Bud, Lottery spokesman Mike Lang also recommended advanced planning to stave off disputes. There have been disputed wins in just about every lottery in the country, Lang said. Thats when lawyers get involved. New Jersey attorney Rubin Sinins recently represented five construction workers who claimed a colleague, Americo Lopes, cheated them out of their share of a $38.5 million Mega Millions jackpot in 2009. The group was part of a weekly lottery pool, but Lopes claimed he bought the winning ticket for himself. A unanimous jury in New Jersey decided otherwise in March and awarded the construction workers $4 million each. Sinins said his advice to people participating in an office pool is to use common sense. Resolving disputed group winnings can take years. In 2010, colleagues at a Florida country club won $16 million in the state lottery but soon faced a lawsuit from one regular pool member who wasnt at the club the day money was collected for the tickets. Jeanette French played the lottery with colleagues for nine years, though the members of the group changed over time. Seven group members claimed the winning ticket, but a lawyer for French got her claimed portion of the winnings set aside in a trust which the two sides are now fighting over. One of Frenchs attorneys, Miami lawyer Eric Shane, suggested that pool participants establish written rules and consider having each player sign the rules. He also suggested trying to keep pool members consistent. But his real advice? My true advice, honestly, would be dont do a pool, Shane said. Group lottery wins often lead to court Lawyers advice: Dont do a pool Associated PressWASHINGTON The federal student loan program seemed like a great idea back in 1965: Borrow to go to college now, pay it back later when you have a job. But many borrowers these days are close to flunking out, tripped up by painful real-life lessons in math and economics. Surging above $1 trillion, U.S. student loan debt has surpassed credit card and auto-loan debt. This debt explosion jeopardizes the fragile recovery, increases the burden on taxpayers and possibly sets the stage for a new economic crisis. With a still-wobbly jobs market, these loans are increasingly hard to pay off. Unable to find work, many students have returned to school, further driving up their indebtedness. Average student loan debt recently topped $25,000, up 25 percent in 10 years. And the mushrooming debt has direct implications for taxpayers, since 8 in 10 of these loans are government-issued or guaranteed. President Barack Obama has offered a raft of proposals aimed at fine-tuning the system and making repayments easier. Yet the predicament of debt-burdened former students has failed to generate much notice in the GOP presidential campaign. Instead, the candidates are dismissive of government student loan programs in general and Obamas proposals in particular. Rick Santorum went so far as to label Obama a snob for urging all Americans to try to obtain some form of post-high-school education even though some polls show over 90 percent of parents expect their children to go to college. Frontrunner Mitt Romney denounces what he calls a government takeover of the program. Newt Gingrich calls student loans a Ponzi scheme under which students spend the borrowed money now but will have to pay off the national debt later in life as taxpayers. And Ron Paul wants to abolish the program entirely. Lifting student debt higher and higher is the escalating cost of attending schools, with tuition increasing far faster than the rate of inflation. And enrollment has been rising for years, a trend that accelerated through the recent recession, fueling even more borrowing. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics, argues that government loans and subsidies are not particularly cost-effective for taxpayers because universities and colleges just raise their tuition. It doesnt improve affordability and it doesnt make it easier to go to college. Of course, its very hard on the kids who have gone through this, because theyre on the hook, Zandi added. And theyre not going to be able to get off the hook. Its not just young adults who are saddled. Parents and the federal government shoulder a substantial part of the postsecondary education bill, said a new report by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. And some of the borrowers are baby boomers, near or at retirement age. The Fed research found that Americans 60 and older still owe about $36 billion in student loans. Overall, nearly 3 in 10 of all student loans have pastdue balances of 30 days or more, the report said. Complicating the picture further: Like child support and income taxes, student loans usually cant be discharged or reduced in bankruptcy proceedings, as can most other delinquent debt. This restriction was extended in 2005 to also include student loans made by banks and other private financial institutions. This could very well be the next debt bomb for the U.S. economy, said William Brewer, president of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. As bankruptcy lawyers, were the first to see the cracks in the foundation, Brewer said. We were warning of mortgage problems in 2006 and 2007. The industry was saying weve got it under control. Nobody had it under control. Now were seeing the same signs of distress. Were seeing huge defaults on student loans and people driven into financial difficulties because of them. A report by his group noted that missing just one student loan payment puts a borrower in delinquent status. After nine months, the borrower is in default. Once a default occurs, the full amount of the loan is due immediately. For those with federal student loans, the government has vast collection powers, including the ability to garnishee a borrowers wages and to seize tax refunds and Social Security and other federal benefit payments. Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight, said the student loan crisis may not torpedo the financial sector as the mortgage meltdown nearly did in 2008, but it could slam taxpayers and the still-ailing housing market. When student loans dont get repaid, debts are going to be transferred from the borrower to the taxpayer, further raising federal deficits, he said. And overburdened student-loan borrowers may fail to qualify for mortgages and stay much longer in their parents homes, Gault said. Young adults forming households have historically been the bulk of firsttime home buyers and their scarcity could dampen any housing recovery. When kids do graduate, the most daunting challenge can be the cost of college, Obama said in his State of the Union address, asking Congress to extend a temporary cut due to expire in July in federal studentloan rates. The reduced federal rate is now 3.4 percent. It the cuts arent extended, it will rise to 6.8 percent. Still, Obama said: We cant just keep subsidizing skyrocketing tuition. Well run out of money. The Democratic minority on the House Education Committee and Workforce Committee released new figures showing that more than seven million students will incur an additional $6.3 billion in repayment costs for the 2012-2013 school year if student loan interest rates double on July 1. Obama also asked Congress to extend the current tuition tax credit, double work-study jobs over five years and let borrowers consolidate multiple student loans at reduced interest rates.

James Murdoch steps down as BSkyB chairmanLONDON Once his fathers heir apparent, James Murdoch stepped down Tuesday as chairman of British Sky Broadcasting, surrendering one of the biggest jobs in the Murdoch media empire in a bid to distance the broadcaster from a deepening phone hacking scandal. James Murdochs credibility and competence have come under severe questioning because of the phone hacking crisis and alleged bribery by British newspapers while he was in charge, and he faces further questioning in the scandal. Tuesdays announcement was just the latest in a string of setbacks for James Murdoch, who has been shedding titles since the scandal heated up. US factory orders rose 1.3 percent in FebruaryWASHINGTON Businesses ordered more machinery and equipment from U.S. factories in February, a signal that many are investing in their companies despite the expiration of a tax credit. Orders to U.S. factories increased 1.3 percent in February, the Commerce Department said. That offset a similar decline in January. Demand for so-called core capital goods, a gauge of business investment plans, rose 1.7 percent. That was better than the governments preliminary estimate last week and followed a steep drop in January.Molson Coors buying StarBev for $3.54 billion DENVER Molson Coors will spend $3.54 billion to buy StarBev and its nine breweries in Central and Eastern Europe as it expands its operations further. The Denver brewer is betting on a vibrant region once the economic crises subsides in the European Union, where unemployment has now reached the highest point since the euro was introduced in 1999. The brewer slogged through a similar economic swamp recently, when the economic crises cut severely into the budgets of beer drinkers in the U.S. However, Molson Coors appears to have emerged leaner and stronger in its most recent quarter, and the U.S. economy appears to be on the mend. Beer sales are again on the rise. StarBev had sales of about $1 billion last year, brewing more than 11 million barrels of beer.EU launches 2 antitrust probes against MotorolaBRUSSELS The European Unions competition watchdog on Tuesday opened two investigations into whether Motorola Mobility, which is being bought by Google, is unfairly restricting competitors from licensing essential patents. The formal investigations were announced after Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. complained to the European Commission that Motorola Mobility was using legal injunctions against its rivals key products such as the iPhone, iPad or Xbox as a way of gaining an edge in the market. The Commission is now investigating whether the price Motorola Mobility is demanding for licensing its patents to Apple and Microsoft is excessive and whether its court cases against the two companies break EU competition rules. Facebook files patent countersuit against YahooNEW YORK Facebook is stepping up its patent dispute with Yahoo by filing its own lawsuit against the struggling Internet icon. Facebooks lawsuit Tuesday came just weeks after Yahoo Inc. claimed that Facebook violated 10 patents covering advertising, privacy controls and social networking. Facebook denied Yahoos allegations and accused Yahoo of violating 10 of its patents covering photo tagging, advertising, online recommendations and more.

The Dow Jones industrial average was down as much as 133 points after the Fed released minutes of the March meeting of its Open Market Committee, which sets interest rates and monetary policy. It had been down 45 points before the minutes were released. The Dow bounced back by the close to a decline of 64.94 points, or 0.5 percent, at 13,199.55. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 5.66 points to 1,413.38. The Nasdaq composite index dropped 6.13 to 3,113.57. It was the fifth loss for the Nasdaq in six trading sessions, but the index remains up almost 20 percent for the year, compared with 12 percent for the S&P Utility stocks barely rose. The other nine industry groups that make up the S&P 500 fell, led by energy stocks, which declined about 1 percent as a group. The Fed minutes showed that policymakers fear hiring could slow if economic growth doesnt improve. The country added an average of 245,000 jobs per month from December through February, the strongest three months since the Great Recession. Only two of 10 voting committee members on the Fed committee said they would support another round of bond purchases, and only if the economy weakened significantly. The minutes did not address the logistics of more bond-buying, troubling traders of stocks and bonds who anticipate more action from the Fed, said John Canally, an economist for LPL Financial. The release of the minutes reduced demand for government bonds, driving prices down and yields up. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.31 percent from 2.16 percent earlier Tuesday. That was its highest since March 20. The Fed has embarked on two previous rounds of bond-buying, most recently in August 2010, to drive down long-term interest rates. Low bond yields generally encourage profit-hungry investors to buy stocks. When it appears that bond-buying is unlikely, demand for Treasurys tends to fall. Thats because the Fed is the biggest player in the market for U.S. government debt. Traders try to frontrun the Fed by buying bonds because they believe demand will be strong later.

O PINION Page A12 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 Traffic troublesWhy does the county want to install a traffic light at the intersection of Meadowcrest Boulevard and County Road 486 when budgets are tight and a light is definitely needed more at the intersection of State Road 44? With a light at State Road 44, drivers leaving Meadowcrest and planning to head west on C.R. 486 can use this exit without increasing travel time. Drivers headed east on C.R. 486 can easily make a right turn from Meadowcrest Boulevard without a light. Im also concerned about the county signage on C.R. 486 directing people traveling east into Meadowcrest. Why would you direct them through the middle of this peaceful development when it is closer and easier for them to find the facility from the S.R. 44 entrance? A wiser (and cheaper) plan would be for the county to: 1) Move the proposed light from C.R. 486 and install it at the S.R. 44 entrance; 2) remove any and all signage that directs traffic through the middle of Meadowcrest; and 3) post No thru Traffic signage at the C.R. 486 entrance to Meadowcrest. This would preserve the quiet character of Meadowcrest, cost the taxpayers less and provide a safe and convenient traffic flow to and from county and commercial facilities along the State Road 44 edge of Meadowcrest.Nancy Nehring Crystal River Members follow rules I am compelled to respond to Terry Mattinglys column of March 24, 2012, Rise of secular Catholics. Just as God welcomes and encourages all to embrace Him, so does the Catholic Church welcome all to embrace it. In neither instance, with God nor the Catholic Church, is one forced to do so. As in any institution or organization if one claims to be a member, then it follows that they must at some time have agreed to the requirements of membership. So it is with the Catholic Church. Catholics are blessed with a central teaching authority which assures uniformity of interpretation of ecclesiastical questions. I submit that those of whom Mattingly speaks, those who would try to change church teaching to suit either their lifestyle or beliefs, are often referred to as cafeteria Catholics. They choose to adhere to only those requirements with which they are comfortable. To say one is Catholic, but not accept Catholic teachings really makes no sense at all. It is quite clear that the emphasis is being put on the Catholic Church to change to fit the times in which we live, rather than reassess where society has traveled in its beliefs, and question whether society is a better or worse place for having gone there. Charles D. Kowalski Hernando Treatment of elderlyThe article by Mary Jo Melone concerning the complete disregard by the state House members of the poor elderly and the treatment of residents of Floridas assisted living facilities is right on (the) mark! It is only one example of the actions of self-centered, greedy legislators who act only on the direction of operators and lobbyists. In the case of the bill to require more stringent inspections and closures of some of the worst assisted living facilities, legislators buckled (under) the weight of more than $200,000 from ALF lobbyists. Maybe some day voters will elect candidates who represent the people who elected them. L.L. Leistinger Crystal River D uring the long, painful debate that led to the passage of Obamacare, Republican lawmakers made a single request of their colleagues, the press and the public: Please read the 2,700page bill. That request was mostly ignored, even by many of the members of Congress who voted for what became the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Now, its someone elses turn not to read the bill. In oral arguments before the Supreme Court recently, some justices made it abundantly clear that they, too, havent read the entire law, even if they are considering a constitutional question that could kill the whole thing. I havent read every word of that, I promise, Justice Stephen Breyer said to a lawyer arguing the case. So what do you propose that we do other than spend a year reading all this? What happened to the Eighth Amendment? Justice Antonin Scalia erupted after a lawyer suggested the justices might go through the bill and decide which parts were constitutional. The Eighth Amendment prohibits cruel and unusual punishment, and Scalia clearly thought reading the entire law would qualify. You really want us to go through these 2,700 pages? he asked the lawyer. And do you really expect the court to do that? As for his part, Chief Justice John Roberts said only that he had looked through the entire law. That no justice seemed eager to delve into the whole thing might have serious consequences for the issue of what is called severability that is, whether part of the law, in this case the individual mandate, can be declared unconstitutional and struck down, while the remainder stays in effect. Its just not clear what those consequences might be. On the one hand, some of the justices appear hesitant to strike down the entire law, even if they kill the mandate, because there are lots of other things in the law that would not be directly affected by losing the mandate. But other justices worry that if they strike down the mandate and leave the rest standing, it would leave an unworkable mess. When a lawyer urged the court to use judicial restraint, Justice Anthony Kennedy wondered whether leaving some of the law standing might be more radical than knocking down the whole thing. Kennedy suggested the court might be overstepping its power if one provision was stricken and the others remained to impose a risk on insurance companies that Congress had never intended. By reason of this court, we would have a new regime that Congress did not provide for, did not consider. That, it seems to me, can be argued at least to be a more extreme exercise of judicial power than ... striking the whole. Talk like that Kennedy is, after all, widely thought to be the swing vote who could save Obamacare left the laws supporters absolutely freaked out as they watched and read reports suggesting Obamacare is doomed. How did so many commentators predicting this would be a slam dunk for the Obama administration get it so wrong? asked liberal Washington Postblogger Greg Sargent. Sargent theorized that the laws supporters simply underestimated the right-wing zealotry of Antonin Scalia. But theres an easier explanation: They simply never considered whether the vast, unprecedented and intrusive new law would raise any constitutional issues. It never entered their minds. Two years ago, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was taken aback when a young conservative reporter asked her, Where, specifically, does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate? Are you serious? Pelosi responded. Are you serious? Pelosi never answered the question, and neither did many liberals, even as a serious challenge to Obamacare made its way to the Supreme Court. In the end, it might turn out that all of the liberal panic was unnecessary and all the conservative hope unfounded. Listening to the arguments and reading the transcript, its not at all clear that the court will strike down the individual mandate, much less the whole of Obamacare. Yes, Kennedy sounded skeptical, but hes entirely capable of engaging in tortured logic to allow the law to stand. Chief Justice Roberts position isnt clear, either. The case wasnt a slam dunk before, and its not a slam dunk now. But it will be over soon. The justices have already met in conference and taken a preliminary vote on the case. A final decision is due in June. Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

Since 2008, the Florida Legislature, in a cost-shifting political shell game, passed the responsibly for adequately funding school construction and maintenance to local school boards by reducing the millage rate to 1.5 mills with the option for local school boards to restore it to 1.75 mills with voter approval. Faced with the states slashing of $10 million for capital projects, annual facilities maintenance costs of $10 million and a $47 million renovation project for its aging primary and high schools in Crystal River, the Citrus County School Board placed students first by assuming the political risk of calling for voters to restore the millage rate to 1.75 in 2010. Answering the boards call, Citrus County voters affirmed their strong support for the education of our students by overwhelmingly approving the requested quarter-mill restoration by more than 60 percent of the vote. This demonstrative show of community support for valuing the education of its students was cited by the Fitch Group as a key factor in the school board recently earning an A-plus financial rating during a period of prolonged economic decline. Unfortunately, the state will eliminate the current quartermill levy for capital programs by years end. Accordingly, school board members once again are placing students first by asking voters during this Novembers general election to replace the expiring quarter-mill capital outlay levy with a quartermill levy for school operations, given that the state has cut the districts operational funds by $18 million the past four years. Since the requested quartermill levy, which equates to $25 annually for the average homeowner, would replace the current quarter-mill levy for capital outlays, the wording on the voters referendum cannot say that it is simply a renewal of the levy approved by voters in 2010. Consequently, school board members and district officials are concerned that voters may mistakenly view the requested quarter-mill levy for operations as a tax increase. Unlike the Legislature, which passed the buck in fulfilling its constitutional responsibility to make education a paramount duty, Citrus County voters accepted that duty with the overwhelming number of ballots cast for the education of our children in 2010. Voters are urged to continue valuing students by approving the requested quarter-mill levy to maintain the current 1.75 millage rate, which is critical to sustaining the quality of education that our students THE ISSUE: School tax vote.OUR OPINION: Maintaining 1.75 millage rate merits voter approval.

All the president has to do is freeze the price of gas and remove all the taxes on the price of gas. Our government spends too much taxpayer dollars on frivolous and pork-barrel projects.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Saying he cant wait for the governor to act, a state lawmaker appointed his own task force Tuesday to scrutinize Floridas stand your ground law after the shooting death of an unarmed teen by a neighborhood watch volunteer. Gov. Rick Scott has announced plans for a state task force but wants to hold off until after an investigation into the Feb. 26 death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is concluded in central Florida. Sen. Chris Smith, a Fort Lauderdale Democrat, said the killing is scaring off tourists and action is needed now. The neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, wasnt arrested and said he acted in self defense when he shot Martin in a gated community in Sanford. No charges have been filed, and a special prosecutor is investigating. The stand your ground law that was passed in 2005 allows the use of deadly force to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm and to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony. It eliminated the duty to retreat before using such force, as required in a previous self-defense law. Smith said his panel will include South Florida prosecutors, public defenders and legal scholars, who will consider whether that law should be changed or repealed. Florida is in a crisis mode, Smith said at a news conference. Its time for leaders to lead, and its time for action. Smiths panel will meet Thursday in Fort Lauderdale, where it will hear comments from judges, a tourism official and members of the public. Smith, who voted against the stand your ground legislation, said he has appeared on national talk shows where callers have said they are reconsidering Florida vacations because of what they deemed the states shoot-first mentality. Scott said he remains committed to examining the law but only after the criminal investigation is completed. We should do it for public safety, Scott said. But the first thing you do is an investigation to make sure justice prevails. Then you step back and say OK, so what did we learn from this?

Flying car Terrafugia Inc./Associated PressThis undated photo provided by Terrafugia Inc., shows the companys prototype flying car, dubbed the Transition, traveling down a street with its wings folded. Flying car has first test flight Flying cars arent just science fiction anymore. Woburn, Mass.-based Terrafugia Inc. said Monday that its prototype flying car has completed its first flight, bringing the company closer to its goal of selling the flying car within the next year. The vehicle dubbed the Transition has two seats, four wheels and wings that fold up so it can be driven like a car. Last month, it flew at 1,400 feet for eight minutes. Commercial jets fly at 35,000 feet. Around 100 people have already put down a $10,000 deposit to get a Transition when they go on sale, and those numbers will likely rise after Terrafugia introduces the Transition to the public later this week at the New York Auto Show. But dont expect it to show up in too many driveways. Its expected to cost $279,000. And it wont help if youre stuck in traffic. The car needs a runway.

The weeklong festival, which commemorates the exodus of the ancient Hebrews from Egypt, begins on April 6. Nine Afghan police killed in two days KABUL, Afghanistan Militants have stepped up their attacks against Afghan police, killing nine and abducting 11 across the nation in the past two days, authorities said Tuesday charging that poison was involved in one incident. The surge in Taliban attacks appeared to be part of a militant drive to assert their power as NATO forces, led by the U.S., try to build up the Afghanistan military and leave combat responsibility to the local forces by the end of 2014. Insurgents poisoned the police with food at a checkpoint in the Nahri Sarraj district of Helmand province in southern Afghanistan, then attacked the police at the check post late Monday, the governors office said in a statement. Four police officers were killed and two were wounded in the attack. The governors office did not say whether the dead were killed by poisoning or in the fighting. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A14 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressOAKLAND, Calif. One Gohs life was on the skids even before he became the suspect in the nations biggest mass school shooting since Virginia Tech. He was chased by creditors. He grieved the death of his brother. In January, he was expelled from Oikos University, a small Christian school where he studied nursing. And, police say, he was angry. Goh, who was born in South Korea, told them he felt disrespected by teasing about his poor English skills at the Oakland school a college founded as a safe place where Korean immigrants could adjust to a new country and build new careers. So, he bought a gun and a few weeks later took his revenge, opening fire at the college on Monday in a rampage that left six students and a receptionist dead and wounded three more, authorities said. Its very, very sad, police Chief Howard Jordan said. We have seven people who didnt deserve to die and three others wounded because of someone who couldnt deal with the pressures of life. Police have released little background information about Goh, other than to say he had become a U.S. citizen. Since his arrest at a supermarket near the school soon after the shooting, the details of his life that have emerged so far suggest a man struggling to deal with personal and family difficulties over the past ten years. Though records list an Oakland address for Goh in 2004, he lived for most of the decade in Virginia. That state was the site of the Virginia Tech massacre that killed 32 people in 2007. That gunman was a mentally ill student who turned the gun on himself. Goh, now 43, spent a few months in late 2005 in suburban Richmond and three years in Gloucester County along the Chesapeake Bay, where he lived in an aging townhome complex around the corner from a storage facility. Next-door neighbors recalled him as being very quiet, but said he would speak if they spoke first. Goh kept to himself to the point that neighbor Thomas Lumpkin, 70, never learned Gohs name. He was always well-dressed, nicely shaved, and his hair nicely cut, he said. Details of shooting suspect emerge Man allegedly teased for poor English Associated PressDALLAS Tornadoes and violent storms raked through the Dallas area Tuesday, crumbling the wing of a nursing home, peeling roofs from dozens of homes and spiraling big-rig trailers into the air like footballs. More than a dozen injuries were reported. Overturned cars left streets unnavigable and flattened trucks clogged highway shoulders. Preliminary estimates were that six to 12 tornadoes had touched down in North Texas, senior National Weather Service met eorologist Eric Mar tello said. But firm numbers will only come after survey teams check damage Wednesday. In suburban Dallas, Lancaster Police officer Paul Beck said 10 people were injured, two of them severely. Three people were injured in Arlington, including two residents of a nursing home who were taken to a hospital with minor injuries after swirling winds clipped the building, city assistant fire chief Jim Self said. Of course the windows were flying out, and my sister is paralyzed, so I had to get someone to help me get her in a wheelchair to get her out of the room, said Joy Johnston, who was visiting her 79year-old sister at the Green Oaks Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. It was terribly loud. Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport canceled hundreds of flights and diverted others heading its way. Among the most stunning video was an industrial section of Dallas, where rows of empty tractor-trailers crumpled like soda cans littered a parking lot. The officers were watching the tornadoes form and drop, Kenne dale police Chief Tommy Williams said. It was pretty active for a while. The confirmed tornadoes touched down near Royce City and Silver Springs, said National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Bishop. A tornado watch remained in effect until 8 p.m. April is the peak of the tornado season that runs from March until June. Bishop said Tuesdays storms suggest that were on pace to be above normal. Johnston said her sister was taken to the hospital because of her delicate health. Another resident at the nursing home, Louella Curtis, 92, said workers roused her out of bed and put her in the hall. Most of Dallas was spared the full wrath of the storm. Yet in Lancaster, television helicopters panned over exposed homes without roofs and flattened buildings. Broken sheets of plywood blanketed lawns and covered rooftops. An entire wall of Cedar Valley Christian Academy wound up being taken out in the storm. Pastor Glenn Young said he didnt know when the school might re-open. Storms slam Texas PARRISH VELASCO /The Dallas Morning News A funnel cloud begins to form Tuesday in southern Dallas county before a tornado touched down in Lancaster, Texas. Tornadoes tore through the Dallas area Tuesday, peeling roofs off homes, tossing big-rig trucks into the air and leaving flattened tractor trailers strewn along highways and parking lots. Associated Press A tree crushes a truck Tuesday in Arlington, Texas. The National Weather Service reported at least two separate large and extremely dangerous tornadoes south of Dallas and Fort Worth. Widespread damage in Dallas area, more than a dozen hurt Associated PressISLAMABAD A Pakistani militant accused of directing deadly attacks in neighboring India on Tuesday dismissed a U.S. decision to put a bounty of $10 million on his head as misdirected. The reward is for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, who founded the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba with alleged Pakistani support in the 1980s to pressure archenemy India over the disputed territory of Kashmir. The U.S. also offered up to $2 million for Lashkar-eTaibas deputy leader, Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki, who is Saeeds brother-in-law. Saeed, who has denied involvement in the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed more than 160 people, said the U.S. announced the reward because of his demonstrations against reopening supply lines through Pakistan to NATO troops in Afghanistan. We are organizing massive public meetings to inform the nation about all the threats which Pakistan will face after the restoration of the supplies, he told The Associated Press in a mosque in Islamabad. With the grace of God, we are doing our work in Pakistan openly. It is regrettable that America has no information about me. Such rewards are usually for those who live in caves and mountains. The bounty offers could complicate U.S.-Pakistan relations at a tense time. Pakistans parliament is debating a revised framework for ties with the U.S. following American airstrikes that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers in November. Pakistan closed its supply lines to NATO troops in response. Pakistan banned the group in 2002 under U.S. pressure, but it operates with relative freedom under the name of its social welfare wing Jamaat-ud-Dawwa even doing charity work using government money. The U.S. has designated both groups foreign terrorist organizations. Intelligence officials and terrorism experts say Lashkar-e-Taiba has expanded its focus beyond India in recent years and has plotted attacks in Europe and Australia. Some have called it the next alQaida and fear it could set its sights on the U.S. The U.S. State Department describes Saeed as a former professor of Arabic and engineering who continues to spread ideology advocating terrorism, as well as virulent rhetoric condemning the United States, India, Israel and other perceived enemies. US: $10M for Pakistan militant Accused in Mumbai attack Associated PressLOS ANGELES A transgender woman who wants to be Miss Universe said Tuesday that a rule requiring contestants to be born as women should be dropped, whether or not she gets a chance to compete. I do not want any other woman to suffer the discrimination that I have endured, said Jenna Talackova, who underwent a sex change four years ago. Her attorney, Gloria Allred, displayed a copy of Talackovas passport, which lists her as female, as do her birth certificate and drivers license. I am a woman, Talackova said. I was devastated and I felt that excluding me for the reason that they gave was unjust. I have never asked for any special consideration. I only wanted to compete. Talackova, 23, of Vancouver, was born male. Her sex change led organizers in Canada to disqualify her from the 61st Miss Universe Canada pageant in May citing a rule that she must have been naturally born a woman.

At the end of Day 2 of the District 2A-5 tournament, the boys found themselves tied for second place with Belleview High School. With the tie, both teams will face each other in a playoff Thursday. The girls wrapped up a successful season with another district title and advanced to the regional meet. But the day started off tough for the girls in singles matches, as both the No. 1 and No. 5 finalists, Kayla Papp and Veronica Williams respectively, suffered their first losses of the tournament. Papp lost two straight sets, 2-6, 0-6. Williams, on the other hand, shut out her opponent on the first set 6-0 before dropping the final two sets 3-6, 1-6. Two matches were forfeited because of prior obligations to the state science fair. The first match was in the No. 2 bracket, as East Sides finalist forfeited to Crystal Rivers Ashley Allen. The second dealt a slight blow to the Lady Pirates, as No. 4 finalist Jessica Reynolds forfeited her match to East Side. But the fair trade in points didnt put Crystal River in danger. Playoff today: Citrus girls tie for district title J AMES B LEVINS CorrespondentGAINESVILLE The Citrus High School girls tennis team walked away from Tuesdays 3A-5 District championships with some big wins. One of those came in the No. 2 doubles final where Citruss Jackie Ear and Melanie Dodd defeated Forest High School 6-7, 6-2, 6-3 for the district crown. Softball teams to play for a cause S EAN A RNOLD Correspondent Local prep softball clubs are coming together for common cause this week as the Lecanto and Crystal River girls teams play their third annual Breast Cancer Awareness game Thursday. A silent auction, barbecue, kids games and various merchandise on sale are part of the Strike Out Cancer event hosted by Lecanto High School on Wednesday and Thursday. The event culminates with a 7 p.m. Thursday game between the Panthers and Pirates. This years edition of the philanthropic event gets an upgrade as Coach Larry Bishops Citrus squad takes on the Panthers at 7 p.m. Wednesday, too. Breast Cancer Awareness game Thursday Central edges Citrus 9-8 J OE K ORNECKI III CorrespondentINVERNESS The Central Bears softball team defeated the Citrus Hurricanes 9-8 in a sloppy but competitive game Tuesday night at Vicki Overman Field. When you commit the errors we did in the game, teams are going to take advantage of that, said Citrus head coach Larry Bishop. We cant expect to do that and win games, especially in the tournament. In the top of the third inning with the score at 1, the Bears (8-12) scored two runs off two Hurricanes throwing errors. The Bears added one more in the inning off a wild pitch that scored left fielder Katie McCarthy for a 4-1 advantage. The Canes (6-11) rallied in the bottom of the third for four runs to take a 5-4 lead. Aaron McIntyre hit a tworun single to bring Citrus S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentINVERNESS Citrus senior Ryan Labrador ripped a pinchhit solo home run in the sixth inning to break a 3-3 tie and deliver his club a 4-3 victory over visiting Springstead on Tuesday. Senior pitcher Mark Pullen struck out six in a completegame performance for the Hurricanes (10-8, 5-2 in district), and added a two-RBI single in the fifth and a double and a run in the fourth to help his team climb back from a 2-0 deficit midway through the contest. Citrus triumph moves them into a first-place tie with the Eagles (9-5, 5-2) in District 6A-6. The Eagles totaled 10 hits and drew three walks, but the Canes defense and Pullen were effective at escaping potential Springstead rallies. Citrus made a double play with an Eagle runner on third base to end the top of the first. Later, the team got a put-out at third base on a wouldbe Eagle run when senior center fielder and relief pitcher Jimmy Diven (three hits, RBI) was called out for missing the base in the fourth inning. Diven reached home after Canes senior left fielder Eric Nelson and senior center fielder John Smith collided going for Divens fly ball to left-center field. In the seventh, Diven knocked a shot over Smiths head, prompting sophomore pinch runner Wilfred Pagan to attempt to score from first. But he was thrown out at home plate on a strong relay throw from Citrus junior second baseman Kyle Tobin to sophomore catcher Cody Bogart. It was a great relay throw by Tobin, and a good job by John Smith getting it in, because he was a little gimpy after that collision, Citrus coach Brady Bogart said. We had quite a few big plays, including some big strikeouts by Mark as well as Ryans hit. Smith and Tobin each scored off Pullens base hit in the fifth with Tobin coming in off the Eagles failed attempt to catch the senior ace grabbing an extra bag to tie the game at 3. Bogart was pleased to see his team pull out the closely fought district matchup after it suffered a pair of losses under similarly narrow margins last week. I liked the way we battled, Bogart said. Its real good to see us win a close ball game. We told the kids were going to manage to try to win the low-scoring close ball games until we start getting 15 hits a game. For Mark to compete the way he did was great, he added. We got out of some jams early on, but Citrus High School triumphs over Springstead High at home 4-3 Perfect! Baylor beats Notre Dame 80-61 Associated PressDENVER Brittney Griner came up big for Baylor, scoring 26 points and grabbing 13 rebounds to help the Lady Bears finish off an undefeated season with an 8061 win over Notre Dame in the national championship game Tuesday night. Baylor became the first team in NCAA history to win 40 games. Even more important to the Lady Bears, the team cut down the nets for the first time since 2005. For the Fighting Irish (35-4), a second straight trip to the title game ended in heartbreak. They lost 76-70 to Texas A&M last season. Odyssey Sims chipped in 19 for the Bears, while Destiny Williams added 12. The Irish cut a sizable deficit to three points early in the second half, only to have Devereaux Peters called for an illegal screen, which was her fourth foul. With Peters on the bench, the Bears built their lead back up by dumping the ball to the 6foot-8 Griner, who showed off her wide array of shots as she arched hooks and jumpers over the smaller Irish players. From there, the Bears went on a 33-11 run to seal the title. Griner scored 17 of her points in the second half, even with two, sometimes three, defenders hounding her at all times.

T he quickest way to improve golf scores is through improved practice techniques that filter into your game over the course of time. Here is one practice technique I have found helpful to me during the past 30 years of my professional career. It is the best drill I have found that enables me to make the knee knocker putts from three to six feet in length. Go to a local golf course with excellent surfaces and head for the putting green. After finding a hole on a slightly sloping portion of the putting green, take eight golf balls and place them in a circle exactly 3 feet away from the hole. Have one ball placed east, west, north and south of the hole and one ball placed in between those four balls. You have now created a practice environment featuring every putt you may encounter on the golf course. In other words, you will likely have a straight up hill and straight down hill putt, an uphill left-to-right putt, and down hill left-to-right putt, an uphill right-to-left and down hill right-to-left putt, a flat right-to-left and flat left-to-right putt. Now its time to go to work! Routine works The goal is to make the eight different putts in a row without missing a putt. However, it is critically important to go through the exact same process and routine you use on the golf course before hitting each putt. This includes putting a marker down, reading the putt, aligning the ball, taking your practice stokes and hitting the putt. If you miss any one putt, start over at zero. I place small coins beside each location where the balls are located so its easy to replace them once Ive missed a putt. Once you conquer the 3footers, move to the 6-foot distance by placing the balls two steps away from the hole. By going through your routine on each and every putt, coupled with the anxiety you will feel about having to start over after missing a putt, your putting will improve immensely. This is a result of refining your putting routine and the added confidence you will feel after completing this drill about two to three times each week. Allow a minimum of one hour to successfully complete this drill. Stan Cooke is director of operations at World Woods Country Club.

Television: ESPN (Thursday-Friday, 3-7:30 p.m., 8-11 p.m.) and CBS (Saturday, 3:30-7 p.m.; Sunday, 2-7 p.m.). Last week: Hunter Mahan won the Houston Open to become the first two-time winner on the PGA Tour this year, beating Carl Pettersson by a stroke. Best without major? Its a long list D OUG F ERGUSON AP Golf WriterAUGUSTA, Ga. The list of contenders has rarely been this strong. The credentials are as impeccable as ever. Indeed, the competition is more wide open than ever at the Masters. Only its not just about the green jacket. Its a label best to have never won a major championship. And its a long list these days. Much of the attention is divided between Luke Donald, currently No. 1 in the world, and Lee Westwood, a former No. 1 who has finished among the top three in six of his last 14 majors, including being the runner-up at Augusta National two years ago. But the list is deeper than that. Going into this years Masters, six of the top 10 players in the world and 18 of the top 25 have yet to win a major. Phil Mickelson remembers what it was like to be tagged the best to have never won a major. He carried that burden and with his talent, it was an enormous burden for some seven years before he drained that 18foot birdie putt in 2004 to win the Masters. From that point on, he drove down Magnolia Lane with more joy than trepidation. Mickelson was easy to identify on that dreaded list. Ditto for a half-dozen others before him David Duval, Mark OMeara, Davis Love III, Corey Pavin, Paul Azinger and Tom Kite. The missing major was more obvious because of their world ranking, money titles, close calls in the majors, number of wins or a combination of those measures. Thats what makes this list as strong as it has been in years. Donald was asked Tuesday how he would define the best player to have not won a major, and once he settled on a definition, whom he would rate at the top of the list. Thats a tricky question, he said. Obviously, my name would be in the hat. Lee has been around quite a bit, and hes obviously had probably more opportunities that I have to win majors. Who else? Sergio Garcia soon came to mind, as did Steve Stricker, who has reached No. 2 in the world and for a short time was the highest-ranked American. That distinction currently belongs to Hunter Mahan, who won for the second time this year at the Houston Open on Sunday. Dustin Johnson is working his way onto the list, though he wont have a chance this week because he withdrew with a sore back. Justin Rose is forcing his way into the conversation, with four wins in the past four years, including a World Golf Championship at Doral last month. Darren Clarke could be considered the last player to remove his name from the list. He won the British Open last year at Royal St. Georges, but much like OMeara in 1998, most thought his best years were behind him. That was a pleasant surprise. Luke Donald left, walks past Sergio Garcia on the 10th fairway Tuesday during a practice round. Associated Press Lee Westwood, left, jokes with Ian Woosnam on the 11th fairway Monday during their practice round for the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Ga. All of the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen foundation, which has 20 years of experience in offering support in the fight against breast cancer. Players will be sporting various pink attire, and the coaches promise more surprises in that department for attendees. For those missing Thursdays game, WYKE (104.3 FM) will broadcast it live on the radio. Former Crystal River softball coach Lanna Wentworth, who remains involved as the auction coordinator since stepping aside as coach, originally came up with the idea for the game. She considers it not just a chance to help a great organization, but an opportunity to teach the girls how to look beyond their own needs and wants and to help them develop compassion for others and maybe a better perspective on life. She and Panthers coach Robert Dupler first agreed to play for breast cancer awareness in 2010, and the tradition continues to grow even after Wentworths coaching departure. Dupler has even bigger hopes for next season. Next year, my goal is to make this a tournament with eight teams playing three games apiece, he said. The cause is directly in line with the sport we play and the players that play it. Its a chance for the girls to give something back and to actually learn and develop a good sense of purpose. Wentworths successor, Coach Dennis Jenkins, enjoys the game for the lessons it provides and the largesse it helps engender. This is the game that I most look forward to on our schedule, he said. Im so proud to see my kids working for something that benefits others. By showing a little effort and working with others, theyll have a chance to see what can be accomplished. Our girls like to play the county rival anytime they get a chance, and playing them on this stage just adds to the excitement. CAUSE Continued from Page B1 Golf STATS

he was making some great pitches when he needed to, spotting up his fastball and mixing in that changeup and curveball. Springstead is an aggressive hitting club, and I was happy we didnt have to face the top of its order in the seventh inning. Labrador discussed his approach during his pivotal plate appearance. He was throwing a lot of changeups and curveballs, he said. I wasnt guessing offspeed, but I was sitting back for it. I should have hit the previous pitch, which was a 2-0 fastball right down the middle, he added. But the pitches up in the zone seem to be in my wheelhouse. Citrus next plays Thursday at South Sumter. BATTLINGContinued from Page B1 within one, and Melissa Michaud tied the game at 4-4 with a sacrifice-fly RBI. Kelly Abramowich scored on a Central miscommunication error off an Amy Abramowich popup in the infield. Two Bears collided and the Canes went up 5-4. In the top of the fourth, Canes catcher Michaud made a spectacular diving catch off a Kayla Conlon pop fly near the dugout, and she threw out the next Bears batter to preserve the Citrus lead. In the top of the fifth inning, Central broke it open with four runs. Ferrara had an RBI infield single and Breanna Warren hit a tworun single, then Kayla Conlon added another infield single for a 8-5 cushion. The Canes would mount another rally in the bottom of the sixth inning down 9-6. Morgan Metzger had an RBI single, and Danielle Garcia scored on a wild pitch to bring Citrus within a run. With one out and a runner at third, Bears right fielder Whitney Roberts doubled up the Canes when she caught a fly ball and threw out the runner at the home plate. Citrus failed to score in the bottom of the seventh and Central went on to victory. CENTRAL Continued from Page B1 Crystal River triumphed thanks to No. 3-seeded Nikki Moynihan, who pulled out a tough 6-3, 6-2 win to complete her district title run. A tired Moynihan was happy to share her thoughts after the match. My serves were coming in really well, she said. I felt like my game was really consistent. Even though the sun was very, very hot, I managed to pull through. I think the sun gave my opponent a beating, which obviously worked in my advantage. It feels great to finally win after coming up short in the previous years. In the girls doubles semifinals, Moynihan and new teammate Veronica Williams had their hands full. After taking the first set 6-3, Belleview battled back and won the final two sets 36, 4-6 in a very close contest. The senior duo of Ashley Allen and Kayla Papp went on a rampage to score themselves a district title in the No. 1 doubles bracket, as they beat up on Belleview in the semifinal round, taking both sets 6-0, 6-4, before taking out East Side with relative ease, winning 6-2, 6-1. Both girls shared a hug after the match and talked about what it was like winning the bracket. Every year, were confident in our doubles play, Papp said. We just knew that if we played our game, and did our thing, wed do very well. Allen, who added the singles win to go along with her doubles victory, summed it up. Its our senior year, she said. We had to come out and go away with a bang. The boys followed up a good day Tuesday with a string of hard-fought losses to tie for the runner-up spot. Today was just East Sides day, Crystal River coach Bill Reyes said. Congrats to East Side, but our guys played the best they could, and walked away with their heads high. It was just a tough day. Were just going to come out here Thursday as prepared as we can be when we face Belleview in the playoff. In singles play, both Alex Papp and Brandon Papp faced shutout losses to their East Side opponents. In doubles play, Crystal Rivers No. 2 pairing of Matt Allen and Alex Papp lost to another tough East Side team in the semifinals, dropping both sets 2-6, 0-6. The No. 1 doubles team of Travis Swanson and Brandon Papp found some success, as they took an easy victory over Santa Fe, 6-1, 62. It was in the finals where the Pirates met their match. East Side walked away with another victory, leaving the Pirates with a stinging 1-6, 26 loss. The Crystal River boys team plays Belleview on Thursday at home in a district playoff game.

TENNIS Continued from Page B1 Pope, Dewees prove formidable team S TEVE M C G UNNIGLE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Rising to the challenge in key moments proved the difference for Crystal River on Tuesday night en route to defeating visiting Nature Coast in a 4-2 District 5A-7 win. Weston Pope (2-2, double, triple, walk, two RBI) delivered the big blow for the offense, and southpaw senior Donnie Dewees earned the complete-game victory, scattering seven hits over seven innings while striking out four, walking none and surrendering two runs, both unearned. Dewees was also 1 for 2 from the leadoff spot, with a walk, a run and two steals. The Pirates improved to 14-5 overall while getting back to .500 in district play at 4-4. Down 1-0 in the third inning, Pope came up to the plate with two on and two out. He came through, smashing a triple to the wall in right center field, scoring Dewees (walk) and Garret Lofley, who led off the inning reaching on an error. Mason Pateracki followed with an RBI single to plate Pope, and the Pirates were up 3-1. Dewees settled in after surrendering a first-inning run on a groundout by Nature Coasts Jose Alonzo, mixing his fastball and curve effectively to put down the Sharks in order three of the next five innings. He would give up another unearned run in the seventh before striking out Nature Coast leadoff hitter Jordan Wildish looking to end it. Dewees main gut-check moment came in the third inning before the Pirates scored. With one out, the Sharks (4-10, 2-6) strung together three straight singles to load the bases. But Deweesinduced Drue Brooks into a nifty 3-6-3 double play to end the threat, which was capped off by an impressive stretch and toe tap of the bag by Pirates first baseman Josh Howell. Nature Coast would not seriously threaten to rally again. Pope was at itonce morein the sixth inning, as Crystal River tacked on an insurance run. Pope led off the inning by stroking a standup double to deep center field off Sharks reliever Tyler Kuzniar. Consecutive bunts got Pope to third then home, as Pateracki sacrificed and Brandon Brooks earned an infield RBI with a lined bunt that Kuzniar had to chase down and handle while Pope came home for the Pirates fourth run. Arron Bertine went 2 for 3 with a triple for Crystal River. The Pirates finished with just six hits but capitalized on four Nature Coast errors. Crystal River will next host Eustis (7-0 in District 5A-7)at 7 p.m. Thursday for another crucial district matchup. CR strikes out Nature Coast L ARRYB UGG CorrespondentLECANTO Tiana Miele may be the best local athlete that few people have heard of. The Seven Rivers Christian School junior won four events Tuesday at the Lecanto High School track meet. She won the shot put (33-7), the discus (84-8), the triple jump (32-9) and the long jump (15-1 1/2). Miele, who is ranked No. 1 in her district in three events, knows being from a small school keeps her under the radar. I like being from a smaller school, and when other players and coaches do recognize, it is cool, she said. Coach Tim Bowman gives me a lot of freedom to do my own thing, which gives me freedom to do better on my own, she continued. He encourages me to practice. This Inverness native competed in the Class 1A state meet last year and finished 12th in the shot put. This year, she might compete in three or four events at the state meet. She will compete in the Class A District Track and Field meet April 12 in Gainesville. Bowman can deal with having possibly to take her to state. I love having her on the team, he said. She obviously makes our track team a lot better. Theres no reason she shouldnt be back at state this year. She makes my job easy. Miele said her best event may be the triple jump. But she doesnt limit her athletic prowess to track and field events. She also plays volleyball and basketball. But this girl just has fun at the track. I love to perform and its fun to be able to go out and do the events, she said. Miele also does some heavy lifting in the classroom. She has a 3.7 GPA and recently was inducted into the National Honor Society. She is not locked into any college yet, but is leaning at the moment toward Flagler College in St. Augustine. At Tuesdays meet, the Lecanto girls won their title with 88 points. Citrus had 62 and Seven Rivers Christian had 23 points, 20 courtesy of Miele. The Citrus boys won their meet with 95 points. Lecanto had 79 points and Seven Rivers had three. Three schools take to track Miele wins four events at Lecanto meet Errors cost the game for Lady Panthers Four defensive errors proved the difference between winning and losing for the Lecanto High School softball team, as the West Port Wolf Pack won 5-4. We had four errors and four unearned runs, Lecanto head coach Robert Dupler said. And the verdict is we lose by four. Despite the on-field performance, six Lady Panthers contributed to the offensive effort. Amber Atkinson (3-for-3) hit a single, triple and home run and scored twice for Lecanto. Amber Coutu (1-2) scored one run and earned an RBI. Sydney Holstein (1-2) also scored. Going 1 for 3 at the plate were Lily Parrish (1 run scored), Brea Martin (double) and Chelsea Lilley. Lecanto (12-6 overall) is on a three-game losing streak.

The visiting Celtics (16-2) had lost just once all season, and the Panthers (8-9) waited behind strong pitching from sophomore Levi OSteen before pouncing. Lecantos Jacob Sims got things going in the fifth inning with a leadoff single. Sophomore James Mooney followed with a scorching line drive past third base. Patrick Colletti laid a tremendous bunt down the third base line and beat a throw to first to load the bases. With his team trailing 3-0, Summers connected on an 0-1 fastball over the middle of the plate, driving the ball deep to left center field and bringing in three runs to tie the game. The first-base coach kept telling me, Stay back, stay back. I stayed back, waited for (the ball) to come across the plate and I just creamed it, Summers said. Two batters later, Levengood the teams catcher batted in the eventual winning run on a double to center field. We knew all along we werent out of it, Levengood said. Levi pitched his butt off. We just wanted that hit. OSteen pitched six innings, throwing six strikeouts and three walks. Sheldon Baxter earned a save with two strikeouts and a fly out in the seventh inning. The Celtics Sam Armstrong threw four strikeouts and three walks in an impressive effort for his team. Panthers coach David Logue told his team after the game they beat a team with one loss. He said they won because they stayed focused and never doubted themselves, crediting Summers with the needed spark. Interviewed after the team meeting, Logue said the game was one that forces everyone to step up their game, adding, These guys are really starting to play their best when they need to play their best.

So Catherine Deneuve said she was surprised to win an American film award. But nobody else seemed surprised as Deneuve, an icon of French cinema, as well as a global star renowned for her icy beauty, was handed the 39th annual Chaplin Award by the Film Society of Lincoln Center on Monday evening. The Chaplin award has been named for Charlie Chaplin since it was given to him in 1972. F RAZIER M OORE AP Television Writer NEW YORKV iewers who fantasized about potshots being volleyed between Sarah Palin and Katie Couric were disappointed Tuesday morning. Both women did their own thing in their respective morning-show guest spots. Palin was the much-hyped guest co-host on NBCs Today, going head-to-head against former Today anchor Katie Couric, who this week is subbing on Good Morning America at her current workplace, ABC. Greeting Palin, host Matt Lauer joked that as part of the Today team, she was briefly including herself in the lamestream media she often rails about. But Couric, with whom Palin has a particular beef after a bruising 2008 interview as the GOP vice presidential candidate, went unmentioned. The closest reference to that face-off, which took place when Couric anchored the CBS Evening News: Palin was first glimpsed Tuesday on the Today show couch with her face buried in newspapers. It was a good-sport nod to an embarrassing moment from the Couric interview, when Palin couldnt name any newspapers she regularly read, instead replying that she read all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years. Over on GMA, Couric was having fun in a video of taking a tour outside ABCs Times Square Studio, where, at Madam Tussauds, she approached a wax statue of her former Today sidekick Al Roker and inquired, Hows the weather in your neck of the woods? If Couric is a veteran in the morning-show world, Palin, who briefly was a local-TV sportscaster and currently is a contributor to Fox News Channel, displayed natural poise as part of the Today crew. She participated in a party-planning segment with actress-reality star Tori Spelling and in a conversation with experts on raising teenage girls. She joined in the Todays Professionals panel with Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Star Jones and Donny Deutsch. Addressing the question whether Ashton Kutcher has the acting chops to portray Apple mastermind Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic, Palin said, Do any of you here have experience with people being paid a lot of money to pretend like theyre you? She was talking about the recent HBO film Game Change, in which Julianne Moore portrayed her in the 2008 campaign. I didnt see the movie, the former Alaska governor hastily noted, and I wouldnt waste my time seeing the movie. On the topic of whether the pregnant Jessica Simpson is being unfairly criticized for her weight gain, Palin made no bones about what she would have thought about anyone targeting her with such criticism: I would have wanted to punch em in the neck. Before stepping in as a guest cohost, Palin sat down with Lauer in the shows first hour in a more familiar role: talking about conservative politics. Though she didnt sound too gung-ho about the prospect of Mitt Romney as the GOP presidential candidate, she insisted that anyone is better than Barack Obama in the White House. Anybody, she said, would be infinitely better than what we have today. I would warn voters to never put their faith wholly in an individual politician, she cautioned, because a politician will disappoint you. But have faith in what that politician stands for, what their record represents. When Lauer asked her why voters should put Obama out of office when recent signs suggest things are improving under his economic policies, Palin replied, They arent getting better fast enough. Palins appearance is part of a nonstop campaign waged by Today to protect its 15-year winning streak over GMA, a fight intensifying as the audience margin between the two rivals steadily erodes. Palins booking appeared to be a counterpunch after ABC announced Courics weeklong morning show return on ABC. Another much-plugged feature was a big NBC announcement by ubiquitous TV personality Ryan Seacrest. Originally set for Tuesdays show, it was delayed until Wednesday as Seacrest recovers from elbow surgery. In hyping Palins appearance, NBC promised she would reveal a different side than viewers have seen before. Maybe so. Still identified with her red blazers, Palin on Today was trim in black accented with a red scarf, with her hair down and lightly frosted. An image makeover? Maybe. But she acknowledged that her 2008 campaign association with a TV leading lady besides Couric still holds strong nearly four years later: Palin said a woman had stopped her outside NBC earlier and asked where she was headed. I said 30 Rock, and she said, Oh, honey, come here! I told you: Tina Fey is here!Palin, Couric all smiles Birthday You have the same potential as anyone else to make a number of solid achievements in the year ahead. However, in order to do so, some of your methods and tactics might have to be revised a bit. Aries (March 21-April 19) There is an abundance of opportunities around you, but unless something in particular interests you, youre likely to ignore them all. Dont let this be a do-nothing day. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Although you have an abundance of friends with whom to share the day, there is likely to be one ineffective acquaintance who will serve as a detractor. Dont let him or her spoil the fun. Gemini (May 21-June 20) If you find yourself devoting too much time to trivial activities, put a stop to it as early in the day as you can. Once you get in gear, you can accomplish all your big objectives. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Even if your reasoning skills arent as sharp as they usually are, youll still be alert enough to get a reasonable amount done, and in a successful manner. It should be a decent day for you. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your chances for generating substantial material returns are excellent but, of course, it will be up to you to actually do so. Dont just talk a good game, jump in and play. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Others will verify that youre the one who is making a major contribution to a joint endeavor, yet you wont see it. Thats OK, as long as your partner recognizes it and appreciates what you do. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Trust your luck, because developments over which you seem to have little control will be the ones that shower you with the largest rewards. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Avail yourself of a new organization or club that will give you a chance to mingle and meet with a number of influential people. Some of these big shots could become your buddies. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) When it comes to careerrelated issues, dont hide your light under a bushel. If you believe that you have a constructive idea to contribute, make your concept known. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Whether or not you believe your social life is at a high point, there are some strong indicators that it is about to get even better. Someone fascinating and dynamic is about to enter the scene. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A transformation that youve been wishing would take place is about to happen. It will not only benefit you, but your loved ones or a close buddy as well. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) You might have a hard time believing it, but if you stand back a minute you would see that it is not only the other fella who is getting all the concessions, its you too.

There are 271 days left in the year. Todays Highlight: On April 4, 1968, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn. On this date: In 1818, Congress decided the flag of the United States would consist of 13 red and white stripes and 20 stars, with a new star to be added for every new state. In 1850, the city of Los Angeles was incorporated. In 1859, Dixie was performed publicly for the first time by Bryants Minstrels at Mechanics Hall in New York. In 1912, China proclaimed a republic in Tibet, a move fiercely opposed by Tibetans. In 1949, 12 nations, including the United States, signed the North Atlantic Treaty in Washington, D.C. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush urged Israel to pull its troops back from Palestinian cities and dismissed Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat as a failed leader who had betrayed the hopes of his people; Bush ordered Secretary of State Colin Powell to the region to seek a cease-fire. Five years ago: Radio host Don Imus outraged some listeners by jocularly describing the Rutgers University womens basketball team as nappy headed hos. (Despite an apology, Imus was fired by CBS Radio and cable network MSNBC; he was hired elsewhere by years end.) One year ago: Yielding to political opposition, the Obama administration gave up on trying avowed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four alleged coconspirators in civilian federal courts and said it would prosecute them instead before military commissions. Todays Birthdays: Author-poet Maya Angelou is 84. Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., is 80. Recording executive Clive Davis is 80. Author Kitty Kelley is 70. Actor Craig T. Nelson is 68. Writer-producer David E. Kelley is 56. Actor Hugo Weaving is 52. Actor Robert Downey Jr. is 47. Magician David Blaine is 39. Thought for Today: The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Looking For A Boat?You can find it in todays classifieds.SHOP NOW!794602 M ATTHEWB ECK Staff writerovines and chickens and swine, oh my! Hundreds of animals, large, small and in-between were on display recently during the Citrus County Fair. Most all of the animals were raised and shown by youths participating in 4-H clubs and Future Farmers of America chapters around the county. Larry Rooks, 54, is a longtime Citrus County rancher and Fair Association president for the past two years. He says the two programs offer similar learning opportunities utilizing different techniques. When I look at the difference between 4H and FFA, Id say that 4-H gives children an opportunity to begin at a younger age to help develop them as they grow older, he said. Rooks explained that 4-H offers hundreds of projects and programs to choose from, and he said theyre not all necessarily related to livestock. The program is offered to youngsters 5 to 18 years old. FFA is more of a broad spectrum program trying to develop young people into agriculture careers, he said. It is also an excellent leadership program. The FFA program is offered to students in middle and high schools across the county. Rooks said one requirement of each of the youths showing a swine or steer at the fair is that they be active members of a 4-H club or FFA chapter. Students presenting animals for judging at the fair not only show bovine and swine, but rabbits, chickens and ducks. Darrick Buettner GUEST COLUMN LHS secretary makes things happen I t is 7:52 a.m. on the first day of the 4th nine weeks; sleepy students are entering the school. The intercom crackles with life. Students, today you must report to homeroom first! The bell rings in three minutes! exhorts Mrs. Susan Weinfurter. A fixture at Lecanto High School for the past 22 years, Mrs. Weinfurter retires in May, and with her retirement Lecanto will lose one of its most valuable assets. A school is only successful through the teamwork of everyone. However, some people, like Mrs. Weinfurter, help make the wheels turn smoother and everyones life a little easier. First block arrives. Mrs. Weinfurter sits down to finish Principal Kelly Tylers correspondence. Mr. Doug Connors interrupts with bad news the copy machine is broken. She hurriedly calls IKON. Once finished, she looks up. A line of people is waiting to ask for help. Questions follow. My class is taking a field trip next month, what do I do? asks one teacher. My computer wont print, can you help? My teacher wants to know inquires a student. We need more paper, can you get that ordered? The water fountain is overflowing, call the janitor! The next two hours are a continuous blur as Mrs. Weinfurter dispenses answers, solves problems, consoles students, offers suggestions, calms concerned parents and troubleshoots every problem imaginable. Its 10 a.m. Mrs. Weinfurter needs to cover the front desk. She takes charge up front and the questions keep coming from the phone, parents, students and teachers. The best thing about Mrs. Weinfurter, begins Principal Tyler, is that she gives honest feedback; shes a great sounding board. Whenever I have an idea, I know that I can run it past her and get an honest assessment.

As American teenagers go, Sally Kim is pretty typical. Shes crazy about singer Bruno Mars and the Plain White Ts rock band, spends way too much time on Facebook and cant wait to start college in the fall. Yet when it comes to that familiar bane of her fellow high school seniors uncool parents Kim has few worries. Hers are nearly 7,000 miles away in Seoul, South Korea. They sent their only child to live with relatives in Missouri a decade ago, when she was just 8. The three keep in touch over Skype, but Kim craves personal contact even more than when she first arrived. As I get older, it definitely gets harder, said Kim, who lives with an aunt and uncle, a college professor, and returns to her native country in the summer. I look back, and I think Ive missed out on so many years of being with my mom and dad. Such relocations, known as early study abroad, have surged in popularity in South Korea, where a rigid, test-driven education system, combined with intense social pressure to succeed in an English-first global economy, often means breaking up families for the sake of school. Some children, like Kim, live with relatives or family friends. Others move with their mothers and siblings while the fathers remain alone in Asia to work. Among Koreans, the families are known as kirogi, or MATTHEW BECK/ Chronicle Maggie Cobb of Eases Rough Riders 4-H Club dries her Limousine steer Thursday afternoon as she prepares the animal for auction Students learn responsibility of raising critters as members of 4-H and FFA Associated PressIn press releases and ads, colleges love boasting theyre military friendly and veterans friendly and that isnt just because veterans are usually good students and campus leaders. Its also because the newly expanded Post 9/11 G.I. Bill will pay colleges of all types around $9 billion this year to educate nearly 600,000 veterans, and virtually every school wants to expand its slice of that pie. But some schools touting their spots on proliferating lists of military-friendly colleges found in magazine guides and websites, have few of the attributes educators commonly associate with the claim, such as accepting military credits or having a veterans organization on campus. Many are for-profit schools with low graduation rates. The designations appear on rankings whose rigor varies but whose methods are under fire. Often, theyre also selling ads to the colleges. Some websites help connect military and veteran students with degree programs that may match their interests, but dont disclose they are lead aggregators paid by the institutions often for-profit colleges whose programs they highlight. Theyre not real rankings, said Tom Tarantino, a veteran who is deputy policy director of the advocacy group Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. What they are is advertisement catalogues. Labeling them a huge problem, he called for standards to be established for proper use of the term military-friendly schools.

Rooks said the benefits youths receive by participating in the livestock projects are numerous. They learn good record keeping, some animal husbandry and they also learn to market on the steer and the swine side. You cant show up here and expect the fair to have you a buyer. They have to work at it, he said. He said many of the students write letters to various business leaders hoping to attract buyers. They learn to make appointments to go and see people, he said. They have to work at it to get a buyer. Selling an animal is one way to offset the cost of raising a steer or pig the child has incurred over the many months of caring for and feeding it. First, the student has to purchase a pig or steer, and that can run hundreds of dollars. Feeding, veterinarian costs and other costs add up over the months. Rooks says a steer can cost between $700 and $900 on average and oftentimes more. A swine runs in the neighborhood of $150 to 250. David Meeks, 17, is a member of the Clay Busters 4-H Club as well as the Citrus High Schools FFA program. At the fair he showed his 1,275-pound, pure-Angus steer as part of the Clay Busters 4-H Club. He won the animal as part of a speech contest and figures if he would have bought the animal outright it would have cost in the neighborhood of $1,000 or more. There are other expenses, too. I have about $1,000 in feed for this animal right now and then about another $500 in miscellaneous costs like fly spray, hay netting and hay itself, he said. Shyanne Waller, 9, is a member of the Eases Rough Riders 4-H Club in Floral City. The youngster has been a member for five years and showed her pig, Biscuit, in this years event. Ive been raising him for seven months and the biggest challenge raising him is trying to wash him and cleaning out his pen. He throws me everywhere. she said of the pig that weighsin some four times her weight. He likes to play tug-o-war with me. Even at a young age the child sees the benefit of her 4-H club. This is a very good experience because it will help me when Im older. I will understand how life goes and what to do when Im older. Greg Cobb of Pine Ridge sat close to his 14-year-old daughter Maggie, watching her dry her black steer as she prepared it for the evenings steer show where the animal will be judged. The Limousine steer weighed-in at a beefy 1,410pounds. Cobb said his daughter has learned some valuable life lessons. This program has really taught my daughter a lot about responsibility, he said. She now realizes the cost that goes into caring for these types of animals. He and his wife Penny assist financially with the expense of their daughters project. For the fair book they have to keep track of all the costs like how much feed shes used, he said. From weigh-in in October up to now, hes eaten 9,900pounds of food at $13.65 per 50-pound bag. The father said financially breaking even at the steer auction isnt the most important thing to him regarding his childs project. The consideration for me is her learning responsibility. Its not really about the money, he said. Its taking care of the animal, learning responsibility, seeing a project through. Obviously, we would like to break even, but we probably wont. Some might think teenagers may become overly attached to their steer or swine that will soon be auctioned. Part of the learning process is understanding the reality of an animal that will be sold for its food value. She understands that this is a market animal, he said. This is her project and she realizes that this animal has had the best care that it could get. Its well fed, well taken care of and loved on. Compare that to an animal in the field, and that animal doesnt get any of that. David Meeks paused outside of the area and reflected on what the agricultural programs have given him. The 4-H has taught me a lot of life skills, especially through raising animals, he said. Its taught me responsibility, budget making, financial management and its made me more responsible. I know there are things I have to do so instead of going out and spending my money on one thing I know I need that feed money. Its made me a lot more responsible. If it werent for 4-H and FFA I wouldnt be where I am today. Its taken me a lot more places than just the fair. 4-H is more than just agriculture, it will take you anywhere.

Mrs. Weinfurters granddaughters Allison and Ashley stop by to get some invaluable advice. A special time in a hectic day. Keys to inventory, financial forms to fill out, supply orders to fill, UPS boxes to receive, injury claims to file, reservations to make, IB items to double check. Its now 2:05 p.m. and the principals correspondence is not yet done. Mrs. Weinfurter hurries to finish it before the after school explosion of concerns that are bound to walk to her office. Thankfully, a dish of chocolates awaits to comfort all who stop by. Its 3:30 p.m. and finally at least for today quiet arrives. Mrs. Weinfurter can turn her full attention to tomorrow. Maybe she can get enough work done NOW so that tomorrow will start calmly and slowly. It never does, but she can always hope. Efficient, fair, loyal, knowledgeable, dedicated all of these aptly describe Mrs. Weinfurter. Perhaps Mrs. Brown said it best: Susan has made me smile and laugh every single day for the last 22 years. I will miss her deeply. As will Lecanto.

SECRETARYContinued from Page C1 wild geese, because they visit home briefly once or twice a year before returning to their overseas outposts. The Korean Educational Development Institute reports that the number of pre-college students who left the country solely to study abroad increased from just over 2,000 in 1995 to a peak of nearly 30,000 in 2006. And that number did not include students whose parents work or study overseas. The number has since declined to more than 18,000 in 2009, the most recent year for which statistics are available. Unlike American students who usually wait until high school or college to study abroad and generally limit the experience to a semester or two 77 percent of Korean students in the U.S. in 2009 were in elementary or middle school, a time when they are seen as best able to learn English. Wild geese families are particularly common in college towns such as Columbia and Champaign-Urbana, Ill., where researchers are studying the effects on family life, culture and the economy in both countries. Sumie Okazaki, an associate professor of applied psychology at New York University who previously taught at the University of Illinois, said that many young Korean students feel intense pressure to succeed and are reluctant to share any doubts or misgivings, whether the topic is family finances or their own well-being. The parents are so motivated by what they think may be helpful to the kids, Okazaki said. Because they know the family has sacrificed so much, that the parents are stretching themselves, they feel like they cant complain. The students often isolate themselves. We hear a lot of problems with depression, distress and worries, she added. Sending their children to school abroad can also strain marriages, particularly when the father stays behind. Hyoshin Lee, a mother of four, is now back in Columbia for the third time since she and her husband came to study at the University of Missouri 25 years ago. Each time, her husband either eventually returned to Korea or did not accompany the family at all. Their two oldest children are grown and studying at American graduate schools. Another child is a high school senior soon headed to college. The youngest is a ninthgrader who wants to finish high school here. Lee, once again, is torn. There are pros and cons, she said. I strongly believe it was my turn to support my children. I had to follow my children ... I feel like its his turn now. He sacrificed his wife for three years. In South Korea, a prestigious college is seen as even more vital to prosperity, social standing and marital prospects, said Lee.
