Navy jet crashes into Va. housing complex Associated PressVIRGINIA BEACH, Va. Two Navy pilots ejected from a fighter jet Friday, sending their unmanned plane careening into a Virginia Beach apartment complex and engulfing several buildings in flames. The plane had dumped loads of fuel before crashing, though it wasnt clear if that was because of a malfunction or an intentional maneuver by the pilots, said Capt. Mark Weisgerber with U.S. Fleet Forces Command. Seven people were injured, including both pilots, though all were expected to survive. Authorities were still combing through the wreckage of some 40 apartment units, and they said some residents of the complex still had not been accounted for. The pilots were a student and an instructor, Weisgerber said. Bruce Nedelka, the Virginia Beach EMS division chief, said that witnesses saw fuel being dumped from the jet before it went down, and that fuel was found on buildings and vehicles in the area. The plane not having as much fuel on board mitigated what could have been an absolute massive, massive fireball and fire, Nedelka said. With all of that jet fuel dumped, it was much less than what it could have been. The crash happened in the Hampton Roads area, which has a large concentration of military bases, including Naval Station Norfolk, the largest naval base in the world. Naval Air Station Oceana, where the F/A-18D that crashed was assigned, is in Virginia Beach. Dozens of police cars, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles filled the densely populated neighborhood where the plane crashed. Yellow fire hoses snaked through side streets as fire crews poured water on the charred rooftops of brick apartment houses. By late afternoon, the fire had been put out. Residents of the apartment complex described a confusing scene and an apologetic pilot. Colby Smith said his house started shaking and then the power went out, as he saw a red and orange blaze outside his window. He ran outside, where he saw billowing black smoke and then came upon the pilot as he ran to a friends home. I saw the parachute on the house and he was still connected to it, and he was laying on the ground with his face full of blood, Smith told WVEC-TV. The pilot said, Im sorry for destroying your house. Smith said he and another man helped the pilot onto the street. Patrick Kavanaugh, who lives in the complex where the jet crashed, opened up his sliding glass door after hearing a loud explosion and saw one of the jets pilots on the ground with blood on his face. Kavanaugh said the pilot, whom he described as a young boy, was very upset and apologetic. Tower comes down N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff Writer INVERNESS As boys, Albert Jordan, Charlie Dean and a bunch of their friends used to play at the water tower on the corner of N. Citrus Avenue and Zephyr Street in Inverness. I lived next door to it, said State Sen. Dean. A lot of youngsters used to play on it and climb it, but I never did I was too chicken. Id get to the first rung and that was about as high as I could get. Jordan, too, said he never climbed it, but Dean said their friend John Dampier, now deceased, climbed it all the time and hid his comic books on top of it. At 5 p.m., when Mr. Dampier came home from his department store on Main Street, Dean said John could be seen racing down the tower so he wouldnt get caught. This week, the antiquated water tower came down. Last week, as part of a cooperative deal between the city of Dunnellon and the city of Inverness, the 1936 water tower in Dunnellon was dismantled. Each city received a reduced cost of about $12,000 from Pittsburg Tank & Tower Maintenance of Henderson, Ky. A sacred time Passover 101: Why is this night different from any other? F riday night marked the beginning of Passover, one of the most sacred holidays observed by Jews around the world lasting seven days in Israel and eight in the rest of the world. Here are some basic tenets of the holiday: As recorded in the Bible, Passover commemorates the time when the Israelites were slaves in Egypt; and when Pharaoh refused to let them leave, God sent 10 plagues. The 10th plague was the death of every firstborn male, and the only way to escape the angel of death was to sacrifice an unblemished lamb, take its blood and smear it over the doorpost of the house. When the angel saw the blood, he passed over that house and the firstborn sons were spared. Prior to the weeklong holiday, Jews conduct a meticulous ritual cleansing of every inch of their Bonnie Merritt: Positive and happy Workers from Pittsburg Tank & Tower Maintenance dismantle the decades-old water tower in Inverness on Friday morning. The tower has not been in use for about 20 years, according to the Inverness Public Works director.

M.E.: Diver didnt drownWEEKI WACHEE Authorities say a 29-year-old Gainesville man died of an air embolism during a dive at the Weeki Wachee Springs State Park. Marson Kay was with a group of divers who went into a cavern with several tight rock formations on Saturday. During their ascent, investigators said Kay became disoriented and got stuck in an opening that was too small to swim through. The Tampa Bay Times reported the other divers couldnt pull Kay out. So they swam to the surface and sought help. A rescue team went into the water, but Kay was already dead when they reached him. The medical examiner determined Kay did not drown, but suffered an air embolism. Hernando County Sheriffs investigators said Kay was a certified diver.

script, held the hands of those who needed her special brand of comfort. Madeline Bonnie Merritt died April 1 at Woodland Terrace in Hernando. She was 95. Above all, Bonnie believed in being positive. Gratefulness defined her life. She instilled gratitude in us, daughter Wesleyanne said on behalf of her three sisters Susan, Pauline and Bonnie at their mothers memorial service Wednesday. She taught us to be thankful, to love God, to sing together. I have gratitude in my heart because of my mother. In her room at Woodland Terrace, her home since 2001, a trumpet hung on the wall beside Bonnie Merritts bed. Born in Boston, she learned to play the trumpet as a young girl and worked her way through college as a music major at the University of Massachusetts playing trumpet solos. She met her husband, the late Wesley Merritt who was also a musician, while playing he often accompanied her on the piano. They were married for 53 years and they both taught school in Vermont where Bonnie was named Teacher of the Year for 1966-67 and was one of 33 teachers nationwide to qualify as National Teacher of the Year. She came to Florida because her oldest daughter loved it. She told the Chronicle in 2009, I lived in Vermont, and you know, its very cold there, and the people are cold. But the people in Florida are warm and friendly, just like the climate. She lived in Homosassa for many years. She was a devout member of the First Church of Christ Scientist. She had an incredible memory and could recite long passages of scripture and entire poems, such as If by Rudyard Kipling. One of her favorite groups of people was her PEO chapter, her PEO sisters. At one time she served as the philanthropic groups chaplain. She was the one who would send cards to ailing members or those having a birthday. When she stopped driving, I would drive her, said Pauline Gerbino. She would say, Tell me something I dont know about this person, and shed write a personalized poem. She was amazing. She would tell me wonderful stories, and she had such insight and wisdom. Not one to let age stop her, Bonnie began sketching at 79. In 1987 she wrote a book, Have A Happy. When she taught school, as the dismissal bell rang shed tell her students, Have a happy. A little boy once told her, Have a nice. She was part of a ukulele band called the Kool Kats, which was later changed to Strings and Things. At one time she played in almost every nursing home in Citrus County. Prior to coming to Woodland Terrace, Bonnie broke her hip line dancing to Rocky Top, but that didnt stop her. When she moved into the facility, she determined she was there to make a difference and she did. She started the honor board that spotlights a different resident each month. People come in and they see us in chairs, see that were aged, she had said. But they dont know who we were. Thanks to Bonnie, they did. She started writing a monthly newsletter, The Terrace Tattler, and served as president of the residents council. She saw herself as an advocate and a sounding board. She was all about giving people dignity and purpose. The one thing that frustrated her was not being able to make others as positive and grateful as she was. She hated seeing people just sit, waiting for the hours to go by. She was my mentor, said Leilani Saumell. I didnt start nursing school until I was 56, and Bonnie kept telling me I could do it. She called me her other daughter, and I still have every letter she ever wrote me. She was the most loving person I ever met.

Citrus Ave. Inverness, FL) RSVP To: Brian Ball 352-344-6732 By April 20th Food and Beverages Provided State Rep. stands by his belief M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith has made a name for himself statewide as the lawmaker behind mandatory drug tests. Last year Smith, R-Inverness, championed a bill that required welfare recipients to take drug tests. That law is now being challenged in court. This year the Legislature approved and Gov. Rick Scott signed a Smith bill to allow random drug tests for state employees. Some political newspaper columnists, most notably the Miami Heralds Carl Hiassen, criticized legislators for passing a bill for drug testing state employees but excluding lawmakers. Hiassen took particular aim at Smith and his refusal to accept an amendment that would include drug testing for legislators. It was found to be unconstitutional to drug test elected officials because it prevents us, as citizens, from having that First Amendment right, Smith said, according to the column. Hiassen wrote Smith was referring to a 1997 U.S. Supreme Court case that struck down a Georgia law to drug test political candidates for office as being a violation of their Fourth Amendment rights of privacy. Based on that column, The Tampa Bay TimesPolitiFact researched a similar Smith quote uttered during a House committee debate over the drug testing bill. When Democrat lawmakers pressed Smith to explain why he would not support an amendment that included legislators in the drug-testing law, Smith said: Because it is succinctly decided by the U.S. Supreme Court that drug testing elected officials would violate the First Amendment right of freedom of speech by being elected. PolitiFact researched the quote and gave it a false one step above pants on fire on its Truth-O-Meter. According to politifact.com, Smith was referring to Chandler vs. Miller, a 1997 Supreme Court decision that overturned a Georgia law requiring drug testing for statewide candidates within 30 days of qualifying for the ballot. The court threw out the law as being a violation of the Fourth Amendment, which protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. Smith made the claim that elected officials have a special First Amendment protection from being tested for drugs, PolitiFact said. No court has gone close to that far. In a Georgia case, the Supreme Court ruled that candidates for office not elected officials cannot be forced to take a drug test because it violates the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution thats not the one dealing with freedom of speech. Smith told the Chronicle he disagrees with PolitiFact. He said that while the Supreme Court case didnt list First Amendment protections as a reason for its decision, it referred to freedom of speech in its ruling. In my research of this I feel it backs up my side, Smith said. I say the statement I made is correct. Its still what I believe. Smith noted that his actual reason for opposing a law requiring drug testing of lawmakers is its already allowed. Both the Senate president and speaker of the House have authority to order drug tests of legislators, he said.

State BRIEF Caylees law becomes law TALLAHASSEE Prompted by the death of Orlando 2-year-old Caylee Anthony in 2008, Gov. Rick Scott on Friday signed a measure to bolster penalties for lying to police when a child goes missing. Known as Caylees Law, the measure (HB 37) was among other criminal justice bills signed into law Friday. The bills included measures on human trafficking, cop killers and paying funeral expenses for children who die while in state custody. From wire reports

TampaZone for protests at RNC debated The Tampa City Council has postponed a vote on the citys proposed ground rules for protests outside the Republican National Convention, so officials can address concerns raised by civil libertarians, Occupy Tampa, protest groups and council members themselves. TheTampa Bay Times reported the council decided to postpone the vote on Thursday. Councilors are concerned that the citys proposed clean zone where many types of potential weapons would be banned is too large and that a proposed 60-minute time limit on parades and demonstrations in that area is unrealistic. From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Green belt proposal raises hackles C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterResidents battled with their own property owners association Tuesday as the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission tried to make sense of a request to build on green belt land. Oak Village Association Inc., a property owners group within Sugarmill Woods, asked to change the designation of about 4.99 acres from nature belt to community facility to make it a site for a 4,000square-foot office building. The issue before the board was that about a dozen property owners opposed the application because it would use land designated as green belt. Where does this green belt come from? asked board member James Williams. Board member William Garvin asked if the subdivisions master plan with the county imposed any planning restrictions on green belt land. This is an old subdivision, said Joanna Coutu, principal planner. There are no standards that say that. We do have minimum setbacks requirements, but they didnt address whether green belt could be converted. That was the nub of the conflict: Neither the state nor the county has set aside green belt land. The green belt designation was created in the property owners deed restrictions, which the county does not enforce and cannot consider in the application. Ted Swope, president of the association, said property owners had voted overwhelmingly by 2 to 1 in favor of building the office. Ralph Stanzione, a member of the associations board of directors, said the group had been spending $25,000 a year rent for a building seven miles away from the neighborhood. Resident Deborah Christensen said she supported the application because the association had had four different leases for office space in the past. We need a permanent slot, Christensen said. Resident Kenneth Moody said the application was inappropriate from the deed restrictions, as the green belt is common property. According to the deed restrictions, construction can take place on a lot but not on common property, and all green belt was to stay intact and not be further subdivided. Resident Dr. Bruce Bryn said Swope gave misleading information about the vote. Most of those voting were property owners and not residents. Also, many who voted were voting in favor of the office building, but not the building site on green belt land. The board discussed why they were being asked for permission to build on green belt land. Williams said the land should be replatted before consideration for building, but Jenette Collins, land development division director, said the application was going through the correct process. Garvin did not like the site plan, but was told that the site plan was not the current consideration; just the change of designation. Board member Paul Wheeler said there was a lot of noise about the application, but it came down to one question: Is this use acceptable to this piece of property. But there is no piece of property, Williams replied. The board voted by 5 to 2 for approval with modified conditions, and the application will move to the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. The board approved an application to subdivide 215 acres along West Larue Denise Drive off U.S. 19 in Crystal River. Buyers of the nine lots would be responsible for the private road maintenance along with residents of Spring Run subdivision.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Residents battle with property owners association on designation change to allow for office building S ince the beginning of 2012, the Inverness Highlands have experienced a vehicle burglary trend for which the Citrus County Sheriffs Office needs your help in solving. The suspect/suspects in these cases are entering unlocked vehicles during the night and removing anything of value. The vehicles have been unlocked, parked in the driveways of residences throughout the Highlands. Typically, these types of crimes are committed by thieves looking for an opportunity to obtain your property. Thieves will walk through an area with multiple vehicles and begin pulling on car door handles in an attempt to find one that is unsecured. Once a vehicle is found to be unlocked, the thief will enter the vehicle and quickly remove anything that appears to be valuable, such as global positioning systems (GPS), radios, firearms, jewelry or currency. In the cases reported during this trend, items stolen from vehicles include: GPS units, iPad tablets, iPod mp3 players, a gold and diamond tester, a Remington 1911 pistol, a Florida Gators wallet, a birth certificate and Social Security card, sunglasses, a virtual reality camera monitor, a Guardian generator, a DVD player, a Nextel cell phone, a Samsung touch cell phone, compact discs, a Compaq Presario laptop computer, a Century safe, a blue butterfly-shaped lock box, Susan B. Anthony coins, a French coin, a silver dollar, multiple purses, multiple credit cards and U.S. currency. The vast majority of burglaries that occur in Citrus County take place in unsecured vehicles and residences. Please do your part to prevent becoming a victim by keeping your vehicles and residences locked at all times. Refrain from leaving valuables in plain sight inside your vehicle; doing so only entices thieves to break in and steal those items. Please report any suspicious persons or activity in your neighborhood to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office by dialing 911 so deputies can respond and investigate. We need your help in preventing crime, and we would much rather investigate suspicious activity than investigate a crime that could have been prevented or caught in progress. If you have any information about these vehicle burglaries in the Inverness Highlands, please contact Det. Craig Callahan at 352-726-4488, or contact CrimeStoppers of Citrus County by calling 888-ANY-TIPS, texting the word CITRUS plus your tip to 274637 or visiting crimestopperscitrus.com.

N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Last year, Duane Finch Sr. got fed up with people telling him, You need to lose weight. Hed heard it all his life. However, when his doctor told him at 281 pounds he was pre-diabetic, had high blood pressure, his good cholesterol number was low and his bad cholesterol number was high, that got his attention. But it was having to test his blood glucose with a finger prick twice a day he hates needles that finally did it. In March 2011, Finch joined the local TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) group where his wife, Shiela, is leader, and in less than 13 months lost 66 pounds. Recently, Finch, 64, was named TOPS Best Male Loser for the state of Florida for his division, males 300 to 225 pounds. At this weeks regular meeting at Calvary Chapel in Inverness, district coordinator Jim Ferri congratulated him for his accomplishment. Youre an example, he told Finch. A retired trumpet player in the U.S. Army band, Finch said keeping his weight down while in the military was difficult. Once he retired, all constraints were off. He said it was nothing for him to eat a 3/4-pound burger and a double order of fries with half a bottle of ketchup on top. Last year, to see my belt buckle I had to use a mirror, he said. Also last year I was wearing size 44 blue jeans and now Im wearing size 34. He said theres really no secret to his weight loss other than reducing his portions and thinking about what he eats before he eats it and making a sensible choice. Now I can walk eight miles without stopping, he said. He said he still has about 10 pounds to go until he reaches KOPS status (Keeping Off Pounds Sensibly). All my life hearing people say, You need to lose weight got depressing. I felt belittled. But now I feel good, he said. It was my turn my way.

The poor guy was in shock. I checked for broken bones and opened wounds, said Kavanaugh, who spent 23 years in the rescue squad and retired in 1996. Despite having suffered several heart attacks and open-heart surgery, Kavanaugh said his old rescue skills kicked in as he dragged the pilot around the corner and away from the fire before several other explosions occurred. As authorities closed roads in the neighborhood, traffic backed up on side streets and on nearby Interstate 264, with slow-moving columns of vehicles bringing drivers to a virtual standstill early Friday afternoon. Edna Lukens, who works at the apartment complex across the street from the crash, said she saw three apartment buildings on fire. We heard this loud noise and we looked out the window and there was smoke all in the sky. Then the flames started going up in the sky, and then the apartment building just started burning and the police was called and everybody came out, Lukens said. Felissa Ezell, 71, was sitting in a folding chair outside her townhouse near the crash site Friday and recalled hearing the crash as she returned home earlier in the day. Oh, my God, I heard three really loud explosions, then the black smoke went up high in the sky, she said. The same model of fighter jet, an F/A-18D, crashed in December 2008 while returning to Marine Corps Air Station Miramar after a training exercise in a San Diego neighborhood. That crash killed four members of one family and destroyed two homes. The Marine Corps said the jet suffered a mechanical failure, but a series of bad decisions led the pilot a student to bypass a potentially safe landing at a coastal Navy base after his engine failed. The pilot ejected and told investigators he screamed in horror as he watched the jet plow into the neighborhood, incinerating two homes. A federal judge ordered the U.S. government to pay the family nearly $18 million in restitution. The tower hasnt been in use for about 20 years, said Katie Cottrell, Inverness Public Works director. We cant get the fire flow from it that we would need to support the system, and since were not going to ever use it plus its a safety hazard it doesnt make sense to spend money to fix it up because of nostalgia. At Tuesdays city council meeting, Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said the city had been talking about removing the tower for some time. Its no longer needed, he said. Even so, its been a landmark in Inverness for decades. Its part of the old part of Inverness, said city councilwoman Marti Consuegra. Its a street up from me I can see it from my front door. She said its always been how she gives people directions to her house. She tells them, as they drive into town from State Road 44, look for the water tower. Thats how youll find us, she would tell people. I know it needs to come down for safety reasons, but Ill miss it, she said.

During one part of the Passover Seder, three matzohs are on a plate covered with a napkin. The middle one, called the afikomen, which symbolizes the Pesach, or Passover lamb, is removed, broken and wrapped in another napkin and hidden.

Lecanto, FL On Hwy. 44 Next to Key Training Center (Look for the purple roof ) www.serenitydayspacitrus.com FOR BEAUTY & WELLNESS MM 9997 Its Time For You Associated PressFor the stock market, it was a triumphant first quarter. But for earnings growth, the past three months were just ho-hum. Analysts are expecting earnings for companies in the Standard & Poors 500 index to decline 0.1 percent compared to a year ago, according to FactSet. Its a tiny number but a significant turning point. Earnings growth was on a winning streak for the previous nine quarters. Year-over-year earnings growth has been at least 10 percent for all but the most recent period, when it was 6 percent. The reasons for the expected slowdown range from global (a weak Europe hurts everybody) to mathematical (its hard to top double-digit quarters). Whatever the cause, the stagnation in earnings growth is a stark reminder that the economys problems are far from solved. Just three months ago, analysts were predicting 3 percent earnings growth for the first quarter. Well soon see if the expectations are on target. Earnings season gets under way Tuesday when the aluminum producer Alcoa becomes the first major U.S. company to release its firstquarter results. Should this batch of earnings contain a lot of bad surprises, it could upend a stock market rally that pushed the S&P 500 index up 12 percent in the first three months of the year. Heres what you need to know: Are earnings really that bad? It depends on how you look at it. People are blaming the slowdown on several factors, including higher oil prices and Europes debt crisis. Those are legitimate concerns. High prices for oil and gas make it more expensive for companies to ship their products and leave people with less money to spend on other things. Europes debt crisis means that the U.S. cant sell as many products there. It also hurts fast-growing economies like China and India that export to Europe. That, in turn, affects U.S. companies that count on growth in emerging markets to boost their own sales. Keep in mind that this deceleration follows an extended period of big gains. Earnings surged 19 percent in the first quarter of 2011, and that was on top of 53 percent growth the year before as companies bounced back from a dismal first quarter of 2009. Aggregate earnings of companies in the S&P 500 were $96 per share last year, a record, according to FactSet senior earnings analyst John Butters. Investors realize that companies cant sustain warp speed indefinitely. Its supposed to be a very weak quarter, says Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ, but Wall Street is not freaking out because they understand why. Does the market care about earnings? Sure, to an extent. More often than not, a companys stock moves in the same direction as its earnings. Investors tend to trade on what they expect to happen in the coming months. By the time a company actually announces its quarterly results, chances are theyve already been baked into the stock price and wont have much of an immediate effect unless theres a big surprise. A companys predictions about the future are what investors really listen to. A lot of what were going to get now, Butters says, is already in the rear-view mirror. Butters also notes the outsized impact of Apples earnings on the overall figure for the S&P 500. Strip out Apple, Butters says, and the prediction for the first quarter falls from minus 0.1 percent to minus 1.6 percent. Besides, one quarter of earnings growth hardly means a company is solid. Earnings can be a deceptive measurement, and will rise even when revenue falls if a company slashes jobs and other expenses. Share buybacks and accounting charges can also inflate profits and mask a companys struggles. You can always juggle earnings, says Stovall. Its a lot harder to fudge sales. Whats the big picture? Despite all the hubbub about The End of Earnings Growth, analysts are expecting only a short-term decline. Earnings growth is expected to return to 7 percent in the second quarter and 5 percent in the third quarter, according to FactSet. Bigger jumps of 16 percent, 14 percent and 13 percent are predicted for the three quarters after that, through the middle of 2013. Analysts also expect pershare earnings in the S&P to rise to more than $105 in 2012, another record, according to Butters.

Republican Mitt Romney needs an ailing economy to fully exploit his image as a Mr. Fix-It who can restore the nations financial health, as he turned around the troubled 2002 Winter Olympics. President Barack Obama needs jobcreation momentum to persuade voters that things are moving in the right direction, even if millions of people remain unemployed. Fridays neither-hot-nor-cold jobs report leaves both campaigns unsure of whether they can sell their narratives. Employers added 120,000 jobs last month, about half the December-February pace and well short of the 210,000 economists were expecting. Still, the unemployment rate declined from 8.3 percent in February to 8.2 percent, the lowest since about the time Obama took office. GOP leaders were quick to note that the rate dropped largely because many Americans stopped looking for work and were not counted in the government survey. The U.S. jobs picture was bleaker when Romney began his second presidential bid a year ago, emphasizing his experience in running the Olympic games and reorganizing companies while at Bain Capital. From wire reports Scott signs vaccination, public hospital bills The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE Resolving two long-running debates, Gov. Rick Scott on Friday signed bills that will give more vaccination powers to pharmacists and increase oversight of the sales or leases of public hospitals. The pharmacy and hospital bills were two of several health-related measures that Scott signed heading into the holiday weekend. Others included a bill that would allow the use of what is known as a medical loss ratio for managed-care plans in the Medicaid program. Pharmacists, who are allowed to give flu shots, have long sought authority to give other types of vaccinations but have run into opposition from physicians. During this years legislative session, pharmacy and physician groups agreed to a carefully crafted compromise (HB 509) that Scott signed Friday. Under the measure, pharmacists will be able to give pneumonia shots. Also they will be able to give vaccinations for shingles if doctors write prescriptions. The bill also requires pharmacists to take continuingeducation courses administered by a physicians association. Michael Jackson, president and chief-executive officer of the Florida Pharmacy Association, said in a prepared statement Friday that the bill will help increase access to vaccinations. By allowing pharmacists to administer these important vaccines, the new law makes it easier for adults and seniors, in particular to protect themselves against these dangerous and in some cases lifethreatening illnesses, Jackson said. Lawmakers and Scott also approved the publichospital bill (HB 711) after parts of the hospital industry helped negotiate a compromise. Divisions in the industry played a part in killing a similar bill in 2011. Supporters of HB 711 said it is needed because of situations such as a bungled merger of the public Bert Fish Medical Center in Volusia County with the non-profit Adventist Health System. The merger had to be scrapped last year after it was disclosed that the Bert Fish board had met in private to discuss the deal, violating the states openmeetings law. The compromise will lead to the secretary of the Agency for Health Care Administration reviewing potential sales or leases of public hospitals. Also it requires hospital governing boards to start formal evaluations of the potential benefits of selling or leasing their facilities though they are not required to pursue sales or leases. In approving the Medicaid bill, meanwhile, Scott and Republican leaders eased away from their opposition to using a medicalloss ratio in the Medicaid program. Such ratios are controversial in the insurance industry, as they require health plans to spend a minimum amount of the money they receive on patient care. Supporters say the ratios are important to make sure HMOs spend enough money on patients, while critics say the ratios dont guarantee better care and that it is often difficult to differentiate between medical and other types of costs. Lawmakers approved a proposal last year to move to a statewide Medicaid managed-care system but did not include such a ratio. Instead, they wanted to use a system that would require HMOs to share profits above 5 percent with the state. But federal health officials, who are reviewing the proposed statewide managed-care system, have made clear they want a medical-loss ratio. HB 730 would allow AHCA to use a medical-loss ratio if it is required by the federal government. But it also includes a caveat that would allow Medicaid HMOs to at least partially comply with the ratio by contributing money to medical-residency programs or to a state Medicaid fund. Once cute and tiny pets, grown-up alligators now posing big challenge for Missouri town Associated PressST. LOUIS The 50 baby alligators were cute little critters, each roughly the size of a pencil, when a Colorado man sold them out of a trailer in the parking lot of the Kennett Eagles Club in southeast Missouri. Fourteen months later, Kennett authorities are worried about whats become of those animals. Now theyve grown and theyre not cute anymore, Humane Department officer Tina Petix said. Theyre trying to bite people. So Petix is on a gator hunt, hoping to convince any owners that small-town Missouri life is neither good for the reptile nor the people and pets it may encounter. So far, three alligators have been located and removed. One woman was keeping two as pets, often in a backyard next to a home where 3-year-old twins live. The other nearly snapped off its owners hand. Petix has no idea how many gators Ken Henderson sold in January and February 2011, when he set up a makeshift shop and sold exotic creatures out of his trailer. Associated Press Steve Brown, left, president of theSt. Louis Herpetological Society, and Kennett Humane Department officer Tina Petix hold an alligator Thursday in Cape Girardeau, Mo. The alligator is one of around 50 allegedly sold by a man passing through southeast Missouri about 14 months ago.

O PINION Page A6 SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 Grateful for the help We recently lost our home due to a fire and regretfully had no insurance. Moving forward at the time seemed an impossible situation. Now thanks to the spirit of our community, we find ourselves hopeful once again. We would like to say thank you to our friends, family, local churches and charitable individuals and organizations of our community. We are very grateful for the help and the humbling feeling goodness that comes with it. Starting shortly after the fire was a flood of various donations. If we missed anyone please know we are no less grateful, and please take some pride in the fact that it was due to the overwhelming support of the community around you. Thank you Sue, Cajun Jimmy and Citrus County Chronicleand local radio for getting word out and making this possible. We would also like to thank Dan, Patty and friends at Dans Clam Stand, Craig Collins and friends at Color County Nursery, Crystal Chevrolet, Eagle Buick, Sunoco and other local businesses for their help and support with our recent fish fry fundraiser.

We will do our best to pay it forward for all our years to come. Bryan and Chenoa McCutcheon Crystal River Flea market prices Flea Market Do people really know what those words mean? Not antique store prices, but more yard sale prices. Oh my goodness! I have gone to several in the past few weeks with my company from out of town and was totally shocked at the high prices. I know the economy is bad but people are there to buy, and it was assumed the vendors are there to sell. So sell at reasonable prices! No wonder I never see anyone carrying much out of the flea markets. Come on vendors, be reasonable if you want to charge those prices you can afford to open your own stores.

Phillip Manley Citrus Springs V oters dont make decisions based on a candidates spouse. But when a man runs for president, his wife plays an important role as validator, as character witness, testifying to the human qualities behind the poll-tested speeches and slickly produced videos. No one knows him better, so no one can speak with more authority. As Rick Santorums wife, Karen, put it during the Wisconsin primary: You always hear the other side of the candidates, and I think its also just really nice when the spouses give a more personal perspective, a window into our lives. Karen probably wont get the chance to talk about her husband much longer; unless Mitt Romney gets creamed by his own campaign bus, Santorum wont be the Republican nominee. But America will be hearing a great deal from Ann Romney this fall. Her husband has tried and failed repeatedly to come across as a warm, approachable person who understands ordinary folks and their problems. Thats why his wife has to make the case for him. Most people dont vote based on a checklist of issues. They want an emotional connection with their candidate. Feelings are as important as facts. And Romneys compassion gap is particularly damaging among female voters. In the latest USA Today/Gallup poll of 12 swing states, President Obama leads Romney by 18 points among women (and only one point among men). Team Romney understands this and is deploying Ann more often and on more platforms, from TV and radio shows to public rallies and campaign videos. She rounds him out, Romney adviser Tom Rath told Politico. You live with a guy for 40 years and youre qualified to speak to what kind of man he is. Adds GOP strategist Alex Castellanos: His link to the base doesnt come from ideology. It comes from family values channeled through Ann. Wives can be a tricky business. Bill Clinton was not particularly successful selling Hillary as co-president, and her stewardship of health-care reform in the White House was a disaster. (Once she stepped out of Bills shadow first in the Senate and then in Obamas Cabinet shes been Americas most-admired woman for the last 10 years, according to Gallup.) Laura Bush (still the sixth mostadmired woman) is a better model for Ann Romney. She highlighted her husbands human side by helping George overcome his penchant for alcohol and then softened his warrior image in the White House by becoming comforter in chief. Michelle Obama is a critical part of her husbands re-election effort. One tipoff is a widely circulated online ad featuring both parents and their two daughters under the slogan, Help the Obamas Stand Up for Working Americans. The message: Were a team, a family, and that helps us understand your family. When Romney tries to talk about personal things, he often screws up. He has trouble identifying with working families because, unlike the Obamas, hes never lived in one. When he told voters he once worried about getting a pink slip he was totally unbelievable, since he had an MBA from Harvard and a father who ran an auto company. Nor has Romney ever battled the kind of personal demons that bedeviled George Bush. Hes too perfect, as one voter put it. His personal life seems totally unblemished by trouble or tragedy. Thats why voters see him as insulated and insensitive. Can you really understand suffering if youve never felt it yourself? But Ann Romney has not been protected from lifes trials. Shes had two major illnesses breast cancer and multiple sclerosis and when her husband talks about her, his feelings start to show through. At a town hall in Wisconsin, a question about his religion prompted Romney to discuss the burdens most people carry, which led to his wifes health: My good wife, I mean, you see her, shes beautiful, shes energetic, articulate, but you know she has MS, and she also had to fight breast cancer. And I watched her as a person with great strength and capacity. You dont always see the things that are happening in peoples lives. Its when she talks about her illness that Ann is most effective as a character witness for her husband. In a campaign video, she discusses the time she was diagnosed with MS: I was frightened; Mitt was frightened. But I needed him desperately. He was so reassuring and so loving. Now, he needs her.

Jimmie T. Smith is pondering legislation that would have school districts relinquish the job of transporting students. He feels the private sector might provide cheaper and better service. School officials cringe at that notion. Rep. Smith, R-Inverness, should value their concerns. After all, they are among his constituents and the closest to the issue. First off, at present theres nothing preventing school districts from contracting with private companies. Requiring privatization, however, seems nothing more than a lobbying interest looking to steer tax dollars their way with no longterm assurance of better service, improved oversight of children or benefits for drivers, who under public oversight arent exactly raking in big bucks. While the terms of contracts could perhaps vary if privatization were legislated, if school systems chose to sell off the buses in their fleet which, new, cost about $100,000 each and the experiment failed, the costs of rebuilding a fleet would be astronomical. There hasnt been a hue and cry from Citrus County for the school district to give up its role in transporting students, so we question why this is of concern to Rep. Smith. Theres value in having drivers as employees of the school system, helping to offer assurances that they are answerable to school officials and parents, and who become familiar with their young passengers. With the blessing of school administrators, Citrus Countys school bus drivers exercise judgment when it comes to whether its in the interest of public safety to transport a child who lives less than two miles from their school. The state only requires districts to pick up those living two or more miles from school. In Citrus County, that could result in youths walking a couple miles down U.S. 41 or Croft Avenue or Pleasant Grove Road or any number of other busy and dangerous roads. Would drivers under a privatized service undergo background checks for criminal history and driving infractions? Last month, Melissa Ross wrote a guest column in Jacksonvilles Florida Times-Union that noted dozens of bus drivers in Duval County were found to have criminal records, with some driving on suspended licenses. She also noted an incident in which 100 or more elementary school students were left to stand in the rain while the buses were busy shuttling people to the Daytona 500. Rep. Smith and other proponents should fully evaluate the situation in Duval before further flirting with a law to require privatization. We ask that our lawmakers fully absorb the opinions and concerns of local school officials and weigh those against whether theyre really hearing a public plea for privatization or simply responding to whispers from lobbyists. We suspect the latter. THE ISSUE: Proposed privatization of school buses.OUR OPINION: Value input of local experts.

Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio As Holocaust survivors languished in displacement camps around Europe at the close of World War II, the U.S. Army gave them some of their first tangible connections to their faith since before the war: passages from the Talmud. Now two pieces of that limited printing have ended up in the hands of an Ohio rabbi, who used one in a pre-Passover service on Friday even as historians ponder their rarity. The two tractates, or passages that help make up a collection of religious and civil law known as the Talmud, are dated 1946 and offer guidance on marriage and vows. They were created to help displaced Holocaust survivors whose belongings, including religious materials, were destroyed during the war. Some experts say its unclear how many copies were printed or how many exist today, but they all agree theyre a collectors item that offers a glimpse into a unique printing agreement that U.S. armed forces had following the war. Rabbi Areyah Kaltmann, who runs the Lori Schottenstein Chabad Center in Columbus, snagged the two tractates from a New York City auction house for $600 on March 21. The Australian native said he owns several other tractates published in later years. I like these things because theyre meaningful, the 45-year-old said. The Talmud is a compilation of Jewish oral law and stories about 1,500 years old. Historians and archivists say its also one of the few religious materials the U.S. Army ever authorized for publication. Abby Meyer, who works at New Yorkbased Kestenbaum and Company, which specializes in selling Judaic items and sold the books to Kaltmann, said the auction house has sold only a handful of single tractates in its more than 20 years in business. Lenore Bell, library director at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., said the books are probably the first two tractates of the Talmud to be produced in Germany with the authorization of the U.S. Army after the war. Whats significant is the publication itself and how important it was to provide these texts to help rebuild the religious lives of survivors, she said. And the U.S. Army contributed to that process. The tractates, called Kiddushin and Nedarim, are the only two published in 1946 because they were the most complete copies available at the time.

Hay there Associated Press A pair of cows feed Friday in a pasture in East Montpelier, Vt. College votes to delay 2-tiered fees SANTA MONICA, Calif. The board of trustees at Santa Monica College voted Friday to postpone a twotiered fee scale that brought angry campus protests where students were pepper-sprayed. The board decided at an emergency meeting to wait on a plan to deal with budget cuts by offering high-demand core courses at about four times the regular price. On the 6-0 vote, the board followed the recommendation of college President Chui Tsang, who circulated a memo before the meeting urging that the plan be put on hold at least for summer classes to allow more time for community input. His request to the board also hinted at the college funding woes that prompted the fee plan. I must warn that this postponement in no way addresses the state funding crisis and the lack of seats for our students to progress in a timely way, said the resolution obtained by The Associated Press. Holy Week Associated Press Pope Benedict XVI celebrates the Good Friday Passion Mass in St. Peters Basilica at the Vatican.

Bosnias capital remembers war SARAJEVO, BosniaHerzegovina Bosnians walked silently and sobbed on Sarajevos main street, leaving flowers and gifts on 11,541 red chairs arranged in seemingly endless rows the number represents the men, women and children killed in a siege that ended up being the longest of a city in modern history. Sarajevo marked the 20th anniversary of the start of the Bosnian war Friday. Exhibitions, concerts and performances were held, but the impact of the empty chairs reduced many to tears. Its as if the whole tragedy materialized, became visible, said Asja Rasavac, who covered her face with an umbrella, embarrassed for not being able to control the tears. One cannot even describe the feeling. Its not hatred. Its not anger. Its just endless sadness. Hundreds of the chairs were small, representing the slain children. On some, passers-by left teddy bears, little plastic cars, other toys or candy. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A8 SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE After binge, job market takes a breather Associated PressWASHINGTON The U.S. job market took a breather in March after its best hiring stretch since the Great Recession. Employers added 120,000 jobs last month half the December-February pace and well short of the 210,000 economists were expecting. The unemployment rate fell from 8.3 percent in February to 8.2 percent, the lowest since January 2009, but that was largely because many Americans stopped looking for work. Still, few economists expect hiring to fizzle in spring and summer, as it did the past two years. And they blamed seasonal factors for much of Fridays disappointing report from the Labor Department. We dont think this is the start of another spring dip in labor market conditions, said Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist with Capital Economics. The report was also closely watched in political circles. If employers retreat on hiring, consumers could lose confidence in the economy and potentially dim President Barack Obamas re-election hopes. Ashworth and other economists cited the weather for the latest jobs report. A warm January and February allowed companies to hire workers for outdoor jobs a few weeks earlier than usual, effectively stealing jobs from March. It partially explains a 34,000-job drop in retail hiring and a 7,000 drop in construction jobs. Our winter didnt really exist, said Alan Amdahl, who runs his own construction company in Sioux Falls, S.D. Its just incredible. People didnt hibernate. Economists also say the numbers can bounce around from month to month. Consistently creating 200,000 jobs a month is tough. The economy hasnt put together four straight months of 200,000 or more new jobs since early 2000. Economists are still encouraged by the recent hiring trend: The economy has generated an average 212,000 jobs a month from January through March. Associated Press Auto workers at the Ford Stamping Plant stack the inner door panel for the Ford Explorer on Wednesday in Chicago Heights, Ill. The Labor Department said the economy added 120,000 jobs in March, down from more than 200,000 in each of the previous three months. Manufacturers added 37,000 jobs. Februarys unemployment rate lowest in United States since January 2009 Time to flee Associated PressREYHANLI, Turkey After days of relentless shelling and sniper attacks, thousands of Syrian refugees streamed across the border into Turkey with horrific accounts Friday of mass graves, massacres and burned-out homes. The latest reports of escalating violence fueled accusations that President Bashar Assad is rushing to stamp out as much of the yearold uprising as he can before a U.N.-brokered cease-fire next week. The trigger for the new waves of refugees was an offensive in Idlib province, which borders Turkey and has become increasingly rebellious against the Assad regime. Activists reported about 100 dead in the villages of Taftanaz and Killi in recent days. A photograph provided to The Associated Press by a Syrian activist showed at least a dozen corpses wrapped in blankets in what appeared to be a mass grave in Taftanaz. The AP could not verify the authenticity of the photograph, but witnesses also described a mass grave. They destroyed the whole village, a refugee who asked to be identified by only one name, Anas, told the AP on Friday after fleeing Killi. If he has to kill, Bashar would even kill 1 million people. He doesnt care. Hikmet Saban, another Syrian refugee who reached Turkey, described the devastation in Taftanaz, located several miles outside the city of Idlib. Helicopters and tanks are bombarding continuously, he told Turkeys state-run Anadolu agency. Taftanaz has been burnt to the ground for three days. Activists posted video they said showed a helicopter gunship firing a missile at Taftanaz and a mosque hit by shelling. The escalating violence has dimmed hopes that the fighting, which the U.N. says has killed more than 9,000 people, will end anytime soon. The country appears to be spiraling toward civil war a fearsome development that could bring a regional conflagration. A vital geopolitical linchpin, Syria borders five other nations and has close ties to Iran and powerful militant groups, such as Lebanons Hezbollah. Assad last week accepted a cease-fire deadline brokered by international envoy Kofi Annan, which calls for his forces to pull out of towns and cities by Tuesday and for everyone to lay down their arms by 6 a.m. local time Thursday. Western leaders have cast doubt on Assads intentions, suggesting he is playing for time and is not serious about the plan, which aims to pave the way for talks between the regime and the opposition on a political solution. Syria denies that the revolt is a popular uprising at all, saying instead that it is facing a foreign conspiracy by armed gangs and terrorists who want to destroy the country. The revolt began in March 2011 with mostly peaceful protests, but the violent government crackdown has led many to take up weapons. A fighting force called the Free Syrian Army, made up largely of army defectors, is determined to bring down the regime by force of arms. Associated Press A group of Syrians, fleeing violence in their country, walk toward the Turkish border March 15 near Reyhanli, Turkey. Turkey said Thursday it was considering the establishment of a buffer zone along its border with Syria after more than 1,000 Syrians crossed into Turkish territory in the latest influx of refugees escaping attacks by security forces in their homeland. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 23 civilians, nine government soldiers and four opposition fighters were killed Friday. Syrian refugees tell stories of violence, talk of mass graves Malis coup leader to return power, signs accord Associated PressBAMAKO, Mali Under intense pressure from the nations bordering Mali, the junior officer who seized control of the country in a coup last month signed an accord, agreeing late Friday to return the country to constitutional rule. The announcement was made only hours after separatist rebels in the countrys north declared their independence. Capt. Amadou Haya Sanogo emerged from his office inside the military barracks that has served the de facto seat of government for the past 16 days, ever since he and his men stormed the presidential palace, reversing more than two decades of democratic rule. Flanked by the ministers of neighboring nations, he read out the accord, which states that under Article 36 of Malis constitution, the head of the national assembly becomes interim president in the event of a vacancy of power. In the event of the vacancy of the president of the republic for whatever reason, or due to any absolute and definitive impediment, Sanogo said, the functions of the president of the republic will be exercised by the president of the National Assembly. The accord did not say when the head of the assembly will assume the post. Associated PressANNAPOLIS, Md. Maryland routinely grants divorces for couples who married in other states, and divorces for same-sex couples should be no different, lawyers for a lesbian couple told the states highest court Friday. The case involves two women who were married in California and denied a divorce in 2010 by a Maryland judge who said their marriage was not valid in the state. Maryland does not currently allow same-sex weddings, but lawyers for the women told the seven-member court that it would be unprecedented for the state not to recognize gay marriages performed elsewhere. If youre validly married somewhere else, the rule in Maryland is your marriage is going to be respected in Maryland, and thats what were asking the court to do here, said Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights in San Francisco. Judges in Maryland have been inconsistent about granting divorces for gay couples. Lawyers said judges have granted divorces for about half a dozen gay couples, but their clients and at least two other couples were denied. As a result, some couples are waiting for a ruling from Marylands high court before filing for divorce, the lawyers said. The Court of Appeals ultimate decision may have limited effect because same-sex weddings, and by extension, divorces, are set to start in the state in January. Opponents of the law passed this year are seeking to overturn it in a potential voter referendum. The high courts judges asked about that potential referendum and its effect on the current case. Lawyers said even if voters decide not to allow same-sex marriages, state courts should grant divorces for same-sex couples, the lawyers said. The case involves Maryland resident Jessica Port and District of Columbia resident Virginia Anne Cowan. Port, 29, and Cowan, 32, were married in California in 2008 during a window in which gay marriage was legal there. Almost two years later, the couple filed for divorce in Maryland, where they both then lived. Prince Georges County Judge A. Michael Chapdelaine declined to grant it. The court finds that to recognize the alleged marriage would be contrary to the public policy of Maryland, Chapdelaine wrote. Lawyers for Port and Cowan told the Court of Appeals that Chapdelaine was wrong. Md. high court hears gay divorce case

You will see the rowers swiftly traversing Lake Henderson before and well after the sun touches the treetops at the start of a new day and at its conclusion when the sun goes back down. Cutting the water so subtly, their slender boats give off the impression of sliding on glass. When the boats really get going, its as if a magic trick were being performed before your very eyes. Its no magic trick: you are seeing a group of incredibly talented student-athletes putting in their training sessions before and after school. The Rowing Organization of Citrus County Students (ROCCS) is a rowing club established for school-age kids of both genders to get involved in the sport of rowing and participate on either a competitive level, which the club encourages, or just be part of a family of rowing enthusiasts, gaining numerous fitness and health benefits. The club is currently at approximately 40 members and looking for many more applicants. When asked about the early morning training sessions, Terry Davison, the clubs coach and trainer and also the owner of Inverness Rowing and Fitness, puts it simply. Winning is not luck. Winning comes from hard work and commitment, Davison said. And thats what we teach throughout the club. I (hope) they take that (lesson) into adult life and not (necessarily have to) row or do anything like that but learn something from the sport. It may be seen as setting the bar very high, Davison continued. But we also say if you aim for the moon and you miss it, you may still land in the stars. So thats what we do. We set a very high standard of commitment and sometimes thats tested in these early morning sessions because its not just about the physical but also mental (strength). This concept strikes close to home for Davison; two of his sons, Ben and Joe Davison, participate in the club with lots of success, winning regattas all over Florida.

Rays down Yankees 7-6 in opener for both Associated PressST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Carlos Pena thrust his arms in the air, rounded first base and headed right into a wild celebration in the middle of the Tropicana Field infield. Pena defied long odds against CC Sabathia and did it again against Mariano Rivera, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays to a thrilling 7-6 season-opening victory over the New York Yankees on Friday. Pena hit an early grand slam off Sabathia, then completed a ninth-inning comeback with an RBI single off Rivera. Pena finished 3 for 5 with five RBIs in his return to the Rays after a year with the Chicago Cubs. All that after a spring in which he hit .107 and struggled so much that manager Joe Maddon initially penciled him into the No. 7 spot in the batting order for the opener. Maddon had a change of heart Friday, shifting the slugger into the sixth spot. Your heart starts racing in that moment and you try to control yourself as much as possible, Pena said. I tried to slow myself down and breathe and take it one pitch at a time, as easy as you can possibly make it. Instead of building the situation up you try to bring it down. Rivera (0-1) had been 60 of 61 in save chances against the Rays. But after Desmond Jennings opened the ninth with a single against baseballs career saves leader, Ben Zobrist tripled home the tying run. The 42-year-old Yankees closer intentionally walked the next two batters to load the bases and struck out Sean Rodriguez. Pena, who was 0 for 11 lifetime against Rivera, won it by driving a 1-2 pitch off the base of the wall in left-center field for More baseball For the Rays-Yankees box score, plus the rest of Fridays MLB results, please see Page B3. Associated Press Fred Couples celebrates after finishing the second round of the Masters golf tournament on the 18th hole Friday in Augusta, Ga. The 52-year-old Couples is tied with Jason Dufner for the lead after two rounds. Couples retreat 52-year-old golfers great round ties for first at Masters Associated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. Before there was Tiger, Rory, Sergio or Phil, a smooth-swinging guy named Freddie used to make em go crazy at the Masters. He can still make it interesting. Freddie Couples turned back the clock Friday back to 1992 during a seven-birdie second round that coaxed a fist pump from the California-cool 52-yearold and put him in a tie for the lead with Jason Dufner at Augusta National. Can I win? Couples said, repeating the question that so many are asking now. Yeah, I believe I can. Yes. He shot 5-under 67, the same score he posted 20 years ago during the second round of what turned out to be one of the most popular wins in the history of the tournament. Were it not for the gray hair beneath his cap, this might have been confused for a replay of that win instead of the second round in 2012. Standing out there, I said, What the hell, a lot. What do I have to lose here? Couples said. Meantime, Phil Mickelson made six birdies during a round of 4-under 68 to pull to 2 under for the tournament. Tiger Woods had nowhere near as good a day. Struggling with his swing for the second straight round, he opened with two birdies on the first three holes, but gave that all back and more. He shot 3over 75 and was at 3 over for the tournament, closer to the cut line of 5 over than the lead. Last year, he was seven back but came back to briefly grab the lead on Sunday before finishing fourth. One of the neat things about this tournament is the 10-shot rule, Woods said, referring to the rule that brings all players within 10 of the lead back for the weekend. Anyone can win the golf tournament who makes the cut. Guys have won this from five, six down going into the back nine. I just need to be solid, cut that deficit down and get off to a quick start like I did last year on Sunday. Couples got off to a quick start Friday, shooting a 3-under 33 on the front nine to move into contention.

There is not one sport that is not affected by the countless hours spent in the sun. In America, skin cancer is the No. 1 cancer. Overexposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun and tanning beds is the main cause of these sunassociated cancers.

This on-going class will be from 10 to 11 a.m. at Citrus Springs Community Center. Cost is $5 per class. The low-impact class is easy, fun with good benefits. Stretching helps to make you more flexible and regular stretching will help mobility and balance. This helps to slow down the onset of common degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis. Stretching increases physical and mental relaxation and reduces the risk of joint sprain, muscle strain or back problems. Low-impact exercises can improve health and fitness without harming weight-bearing joints. Research suggests that moderate-intensity, low-impact activity is just as effective as high-impact activity in lowering the risk of heart disease.

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M AJOR L EAGUEB ASEBALLS ATURDAY, A PRIL 7, 2012 B3 Rangers, Orioles each open season with victories Associated PressMILWAUKEE David Freese hit a two-run drive for one of four St. Louis homers off Yovani Gallardo, and the Cardinals spoiled the Milwaukee Brewers opener with an 115 victory on Friday. Yadier Molina, Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday also connected for the Cardinals, who are in Milwaukee for a three-game series after opening with a victory over the Marlins in Miami on Wednesday. Gallardo (0-1) lasted only 3 2-3 innings, giving up seven hits and six runs with five walks and three strikeouts. Rangers 3, White Sox 2 ARLINGTON, Texas Colby Lewis struck out nine in his first opening day start, Ian Kinsler homered and the two-time defending American League champion Texas Rangers began the season with a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Kinsler, unable to reach a deal on a new long-term contract before his self-imposed deadline of opening day to end negotiations, had a leadoff double in the first and scored on a sacrifice fly by Josh Hamilton. Kinsler hit a solo homer in the third. The loss spoiled the managerial debut of Robin Ventura, who before the game had his first meeting with Nolan Ryan since charging the mound 19 seasons earlier against the Hall of Fame pitcher. Ryan is now president, CEO and partowner of the Rangers. Orioles 4, Twins 2BALTIMORE Jake Arrieta pitched seven scoreless innings, Nick Markakis homered and drove in three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles marked the 20th anniversary of the opening of Camden Yards by defeating the Minnesota Twins 4-2. Making his first opening day start, Arrieta (1-0) allowed two hits, struck out four and walked two in a 97-pitch performance reminiscent of the gem that Rick Sutcliffe tossed against the Cleveland Indians in the inaugural opener at the ballpark. Sutcliffe, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch Friday, christened Camden Yards by pitching a five-hit shutout on April 6, 1992. Diamondbacks 5, Giants 4 PHOENIX Chris Young and Paul Goldschmidt hit first-inning home runs off Tim Lincecum and the Arizona Diamondbacks opened defense of their NL West title with a 5-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Ryan Roberts two-run double broke a sixth-inning tie as Arizona defeated Lincecum (0-1) for the fourth time in a row. Ian Kennedy (1-0) allowed three runs on nine hits in 6 2-3 innings to beat the Giants for the fourth straight decision. Pablo Sandovals RBI double with two outs in the ninth pulled the Giants within a run. But J.J. Putz got Buster Posey on a grounder to earn the save. Melky Cabrera hit a two-run homer in for San Francisco. Rockies 5, Astros 3HOUSTON Pinch runner Eric Young scored the go-ahead run on an error in the eighth inning and Troy Tulowitzki homered in the ninth to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 5-3 win over the error-prone Houston Astros. The game was tied 3-3 when Ramon Hernandez singled in the eighth before being replaced by Young. Young stole second base and scored on an error by catcher Jason Castro, one of four miscues by the Astros. Castros throw to shortstop Marwin Gonzalez, who was making his major league debut, was high and it bounced off his glove and into the outfield. Tulowitzkis solo shot off Fernando Abad sailed over the train tracks in left field and out of the park.

Pena hit his slam in the first. Evan Longoria hit a solo homer in the Rays third, and it stayed 6-5 until the ninth. Hes the greatest closer in the history of the game and we all know that, Pena said of Rivera. He has that illusion in his ball. You swing where the ball is at and its not there anymore. He has perplexed hitters throughout his career. Hes the best closer in baseball, and thats for a reason. Riveras rough outing was the latest in a recent series of bad outings by big league closers. Jose Valverde, Chris Perez and Bostons Alfredo Aceves all struggled a day earlier. My fault. I felt good. I dont make excuses, Rivera, whose other blown save against the Rays came in 2005. I just left the ball up, he said. Rivera, beginning his 18th major league season, had converted 27 consecutive opportunities against the Rays. When you see him blow one, its shocking. Its going to happen. It happened. Its baseball, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. He got a couple pitches up. He got one up to Jennings, and he got one up to Zobrist. That kind of led to the inning. Sabathia yielded both of Tampa Bays homers, but later worked out of a couple of tight spots to cling to the lead the defending AL East champions took on newcomer Raul Ibanezs three-run homer in the third. Reliever David Robertson escaped a jam in the eighth inning, striking out Stephen Vogt, Jose Molina and Matt Joyce with runners at the corners, seemingly setting up Rivera to close it out. Fernando Rodney (1-0) struck out one in a perfect ninth to earn the win in his debut for Tampa Bay. The Rays, whove made the playoffs three of the past four years, raised a 2011 AL wild-card banner to the left-field catwalk before the game and Pena brought the sellout crowd of 34,078 to its feet again in the bottom of the first when he sent a 3-2 pitch into the right-field stands for his eighth career grand slam. Tampa Bays career home run leader entered the day 4 for 35 with two homers and 19 strikeouts lifetime against Sabathia, who walked Rodriguez intentionally just the fourth intentional pass of the young shortstops career to get to Pena. It was the right move. If I make the pitches, then we have nothing to talk about, Sabathia said. The Yankees battled back with two runs in the second and four more in the fourth, when Ibanezs put them ahead 6-4. The offseason free agent acquisition was 0 for 12 against Rays starter James Shields, including a grounder to second base that drove in New Yorks first run, before getting his first hit for his new team. With the 30-year-old Shields making the fourth opening day start of his career, the Rays used a starting pitcher 30 or older for the first time since May 24, 2007, at home against Seattle. Shields made a start in Chicago the following game, beginning what evolved into a major league record stretch of 764 consecutive games started by pitchers under 30. Shields allowed six runs and nine hits, walked three and struck out three in five innings. The right-hander, who set Rays records for complete games (11) and shutouts (4) while becoming a first-time All-Star in 2011, also hit a batter and unleashed a wild pitch that allowed a run to score in the second. Sabathia, a 19-game winner a year ago, wasnt sharp, either. The 31year-old lefty struck out Pena twice to help himself through jams in the third and fifth innings but wound up throwing 104 pitches in six innings. RAYSContinued from Page B1 Ticket prices flat

Many coaches are expressing concern sun block should be in every locker room next to the rehydration drinks. One rowing coach benches any crew member that appears at practice with a sun burn. One coach noted that the use of sunscreen should be compulsory. The trouble is in some sports, by the time you get through application of all the compulsory mandates, there is no time to practice. Common sense by parents and athletes is in order. Younger athletes, who are most at risk, do not realize that the sun burn they get today will have its effect in the form of skin cancer later in life. Not to mention wrinkles and damaged skin. The immediate risk of not wearing sun block and clothing protection is not apparent. These sunburns result in more than one million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer diagnosed yearly in the United States. The most serious type of skin cancer, melanoma, will account for about 59,600 cases of skin cancer and about 7,800 deaths due to skin cancer each year. A recent study of NCAA soccer players and crosscountry runners at four colleges noted that 85 percent used no sunscreen during the previous seven practice days. There is no question the NCAA has medical guidelines for several sports but to date, the use of sunscreen and SPF clothing is not there yet. In our culture, being tan is cool and is perceived as being healthy. A tan is the bodys last attempt to protect against ultraviolet (UV) light damage. UV rays cause cancer changes or mutations in the skins cell. Being tan as the social preference was not always the case. In earlier times, being pale was associated with social status whereas being tan or sunburned was associated with the outdoor working class. My, how times have changed. Now, you can be tan and socially acceptable and get skin cancer at the same time. Aside from sunscreen and SPF protective clothing, the best time to work out, train or practice outdoors is not between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV light is at its maximum. Choosing to practice before 11 a.m. or after 4 p.m. is helpful. Being in altitude alpine skiing, snowboarding or cross-country skiing, the suns UV is not only magnified by reflection from the snow but has not been filtered by the atmosphere. Being on a high-altitude ski slope is the same as being on a beach in Florida mid-day. There are hundreds of stories of athletes from swimmers having trained outdoors with melanoma of the eye to PGA golfers who have had skin cancer. The story itself is not complex or difficult to understand. Apply sunscreen at the beginning of an event and reapply every few hours or when the athlete starts to sweat or get wet. Since May is skin cancer awareness month and it is only April, now is the chance to jump on it and start putting on sun screen, wear a hat, dont play, practice or work out in the middle of the day. Remember Easter egg hunting is an outdoor sport, put sun block on the kids. Have a great and happy Easter.

Ben, a Citrus High School student, is unbeaten in five events in single and double rowing this season so far and is in the final stages of selection for the U.S. Junior National team. If selected, he would train for three weeks in New Jersey before heading to Canada to compete against some of the best teams in the world. Both of Davisons sons are on the fast track towards collegiate and national team berths and may one day see the Olympics. Its not just the Davison brothers who are making a name for themselves around Florida but ROCCS itself has been slowly making an impression in the blossoming sport of rowing at regattas as far away as Orlando, Miami and Sarasota. We need to raise the profile of rowing, Terry Davison said, make people realize that it is a very competitive sport and you can achieve some really good results statewide. One of Terry Davisons many goals for the club is to expand its membership and see more kids involved in a sport that he loves. The best way he feels the club can achieve this starts with greater community awareness. We have the facilities and some fantastic lakes (in Inverness), Terry Davison said. (It would be great) to attract some of the colleges down here for the winter (to see our rowers) but we have to put Inverness on the rowing map. The best way to do that is through competition and more recruitment and more support from the wider community. Known affectionately as the duct tape club at regattas statewide, due to the clubs ability to throw together the best collection of boats they can get their hands on to compete, ROCCS has pulled off several upset victories in competitions this season. Placing rowing crews in the top three (if not outright winning most competitions they enter), ROCCS is beating much better-funded clubs from more populated areas. We always are well-welcomed at the regattas, ROCCS club secretary Angela Howard said. Theyll announce its the rowing club that never quits because were so much smaller than the others. They respect us (because) were there every time. The club has grown significantly from its early years, seeing itself on the cusp of true prominence amongst rowing circles. Terry Davison wishes to see ROCCS become more closely associated with Inverness, making the city a known capital of fine rowers and hopefully hosting a regatta of its own in the future. We have made great strides forward this year in an effort to be more competitive in all areas of the sport including equipment, fitness and technical skill in order to match the bigger clubs, Davison said. In April, we will attend the State Sculling Championships in Sarasota with five boats that will all do very well, if not win, putting ROCCS and the city of Inverness on the rowing radar. The club was founded by Dave Brown in 2003 upon meeting a fellow rower while teaching at Lecanto High School. The two teachers mutually agreed to start up a rowing club for high school students, giving kids a chance to try something different than the typically offered varsity sports offered by high schools. Rowing teams are broken into middle school groups (novice) and high school groups (more advanced). Being a middle school student does not preclude a member from rowing in the high school group; if the member showed a proclivity for hard work, they could work their way up to the more advanced group. An obvious prejudice about the sport is that it is only available to Ivy League schools and the super-rich, which Howard is hoping to dispel. I want people to understand they we are trying to make it affordable (to everyone), Howard said. I dont want a kid to feel, I cant do that because we cant afford it. Were out here almost seven days a week (at Wallace Brown Park), said Lisa Grotjahn, whose 15-year-old son Matthew, an eighth grader at Lecanto Middle school, is a member. There (are) a lot of elderly people who use this park to walk and specifically come to watch the kids launch the boats. Terry Davison and his fellow ROCCS members are looking to grow larger and more prominent within the local community; to hopefully establish a new tradition of fine Citrus County rowers from here on out towards a promising future. If interested in the club, please visit the ROCCS website at www.crewroccs.com for more information. ROCCS Continued from Page B1 opened with a 66 and became the oldest player to hold the outright lead after the first round at Augusta. Last year, he shot 68 on Friday to push his way into the top 10. This time, he heads into the weekend with a chance to become the oldest major winner. Hes six years older than Jack Nicklaus was when he won his sixth Masters on that unforgettable Sunday in 1986. Twenty players in the field werent even born when Couples played his first Masters back in 1983. Still, hes hardly the only big name near the top. Sergio Garcia shot a 4under 68 to finish one shot back, tied with Rory McIlroy, who shot 69, and Bubba Watson, who shot 71. I know Im playing well, said McIlroy, who overcame last years final-round collapse at the Masters and won the U.S. Open two months later. The recent results show that. I just wanted to come here and play, put myself in position to win another tournament, another major. Also in the tie at 4 under were 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and Lee Westwood. Westwood spent most of the day in the lead, but three-putted on the 18th green for a double-bogey to close his day at 1-over 73 and 4 under for the tournament. The double at the last (hole) was a disappointing way to finish, Westwood said. But if you get out of position slightly on this course, it can punish you. Couples, a winner on the senior tour two weeks ago, often ambles around these grounds, twirling a golf club, looking as if hes playing a leisurely weekend round instead of grinding through one of golfs toughest tests. On this day, his 106th competitive round at the course, all the scenes looked familiar: Freddie bending at the waist to stretch, reaching his hand into the back of his waistband to rub his aching back, squinting into the sunlight, wincing at the occasional twinge of pain. What would it take? he said. A lot more birdies, a lot more made putts. Maybe a painkiller or two. He teed off into a fairway bunker on No. 3, but spun the approach back to 5 feet and jammed the putt home for birdie No. 1. He was pin high and 4 feet away on No. 4, and suddenly, Couples was doing more than playing ceremonial golf something he has always desperately wanted to avoid. Sports BRIEFS Baxter, Panthers blank Central Powered by 11 strikeouts during a complete-game shutout by senior pitcher Sheldon Baxter, the Lecanto baseball team scored a 5-0 victory at Central High School in Brooksville on Friday night. Baxter allowed just one walk and four hits to earn the win. Offensively, senior catcher Gary Levengood went 2 for 3 with a triple, run and an RBI while Levi OSteen (1 for 1, run), Scott Stearns (double, RBI) and Nate Hines (1 for 3, RBI) also contributed. Lecanto (9-9, 5-3) plays Tuesday at Weeki Wachee. From staff reports COUPLES Continued from Page B1 Fantasy 5 and Mega Money numbers were unavailable at press time.

Arkansas coach on paid leave Associated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Moments after their motorcycle accident, Bobby Petrino and a female employee told a passer-by not to call 911, then got a ride back to Fayetteville where the Arkansas football coach was met by a state trooper who provides his personal security during the season. New details of the immediate aftermath of Petrinos crash were in a 911 call released Friday by the state police. The passer-by, Larry Hendren, describes coming upon the accident scene Sunday evening just after Petrino and Jessica Dorrell were getting up out of the ditch. He said Petrino was walking, but it looked like his face was bleeding quite a lot. The rider and the passenger of the motorcycle declined us to call 911, Hendren told a dispatcher. They got into a vehicle and headed toward the hospital. Petrino was taken to a Fayetteville intersection by another passer-by. There, Dorrell left in her own car while Petrino was met by Capt. Lance King, his personal security guard during the season. King took Petrino to a hospital, where he was treated for broken ribs and a cracked neck vertebra. State police said Friday they planned to question the trooper, looking for any information Captain King may have learned about the crash during conversations with Petrino. While the inquiries have no direct correlation to the investigation of the motor vehicle crash, the questions are legitimate and worthy of answers, state police spokesman Bill Sadler said. King has been asked to detail his involvement with coach Petrino and other individuals whove been identified within the crash investigation. The developments came as Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long considered the future of the football coach, whose salary averages more than $3.5 million. Long appears to have everything he needs to fire Petrino, but the question now is whether he will actually get rid of the coach, who failed to mention having Dorrell with him during the accident and acknowledged having a previous inappropriate relationship. Petrino was not cited by state police, and was described by troopers as cooperative after the accident on a rural road 20 miles outside Fayetteville. What has him in trouble is his attempt to keep anyone from finding out he was riding with Dorrell, a 25year-old former Arkansas volleyball player whom he hired just last week. A clause in Petrinos contract gives Long the right to suspend or fire the 51-year-old coach for conduct that negatively or adversely affects the reputation of the (universitys) athletics programs in any way. That language gives Long plenty of leeway to punish Petrino, who is on indefinite paid leave after reviving Arkansas football program over four seasons and, until now, steering clear of off-field blemishes. That (contract) is very favorable to the university, said Matt Mitten, director of the National Sports Law Institute at Marquette. It gives them a pretty broad range of discretion in determining what negatively affected the universitys athletic program or what they think is conduct inconsistent with the head coach. The accident and attempted cover-up has become the latest scandal to hit major college athletics following shocking child sex abuse allegations against assistant coaches at Penn State and Syracuse last fall. The Penn State case resulted in the firing of revered head football coach Joe Paterno, while head Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim kept his job. The Razorbacks have become a national contender under Petrino, but next season is an afterthought at least for now after the stunning admission by the married father of four. Long only learned Dorrell was on the motorcycle shortly before state police released the accident report on Thursday. Petrino initially said he was riding alone after a day off with his wife at a lake. Petrino declined further comment on Friday through his agent, Russ Campbell. At this point, it is in the universitys hands, Campbell wrote in an email. Long has not offered a timeline for his review, though he did promise to move expeditiously. Petrino didnt want 911 call after accident Associated Press Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino has been put on paid leave. Athletic director Jeff Long announced the decision late Thursday, capping a stunning day in which it was revealed that Petrino had a 25-year-old female employee with him during a weekend motorcycle ride that ended in a crash. Coyotes bite Blues Associated PressST. LOUIS Mike Smith made 31 saves in another stingy start, helping the Phoenix Coyotes take the Pacific Division lead with a 4-1 victory over the suddenly beatable St. Louis Blues on Friday night. Patrik Berglunds rebound goal in the first period ended Smiths shutout streak at 234:25 and tied it at 1, but Smith was perfect the rest of the way. The Coyotes won their fourth in a row and extended the Blues seasonworst winless streak to four games in St. Louis home finale. Keith Yandle, Radim Vrbata, Shane Doan and Mikkel Boedker scored for Phoenix, and Antoine Vermette had two assists. The Coyotes, whove won the last four by a combined 14-1, can win the first division title in franchise history with a victory in the regular-season finale Saturday night at Minnesota. The Coyotes have a onepoint lead over Los Angeles and San Jose. The Kings and Sharks will play Saturday night in San Jose, with one team guaranteed to earn two points. Brian Elliott, whose scoreless streak ended at 241:33 in a shootout loss to Detroit on Wednesday, had 28 saves for St. Louis. The Blues were the first team to clinch a playoff spot and could still win the Western Conference with a win Saturday at Dallas along with a Vancouver loss at home against Edmonton, but are 3-4-4 in their last 11. The Blues finished a franchise-best 30-6-5 at home, but with a pair of blowout losses in the last three, also falling 52 to lowly Columbus last Saturday. U.S., France knotted Teams tied at 1-1 in Davis Cup quarterfinals Associated PressROQUEBRUNE, France John Isner defeated Gilles Simon 6-3, 62, 7-5 Friday, pulling the United States even with France after opening singles in the Davis Cup quarterfinals. The Americans needed a strong performance from Isner after JoWilfried Tsonga beat 19-year-old Ryan Harrison 7-5, 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 to give France the lead. Simon was called up to replace injured Gael Monfils this week. He has never beaten Isner and could not cope with the Americans big serve. Simon also struggled with his own serve on the outdoor clay at Monte Carlo Country Club. I took to the court very confident, Isner said. I played very well. Simple as that. Saturdays doubles in the bestof-five series pits Bob and Mike Bryan against Frenchmen Julien Benneteau and Michael Llodra. Wed love to be up 2-0, but 1-1 seems just about right and tomorrow will be a great doubles, U.S. captain Jim Courier said. John did what he is supposed to do, which is to be emphatic and dominant. The Bryans, the worlds topranked doubles team, are unbeaten in Davis Cup since losing to France in 2008, when Llodra played with Arnaud Clement. Well be in a great position if we win, France coach Guy Forget said. If we lose, it will be difficult. Like France, the U.S. is not at full strength. Harrison was playing his first meaningful Davis Cup match. He replaced ninth-ranked Mardy Fish, who pulled out this week because of fatigue. In the other quarterfinals, host Czech Republic and Serbia were 11; Spain was up 2-0 on visiting Austria; and host Argentina was tied 1-1 with Croatia. The semifinals are in September. Isner had nine aces broke Simons serve four times. Simon, who dropped to 0-3 against Isner, failed to convert any of his five break-point chances. I could have made more first serves, Isner said. But my forehand was on and I was going for it. I wasnt holding back and that was the game plan. The 11th-ranked Isner took control when a double-break point put him ahead 4-0 in the second set. The third set was more competitive, but Simon failed to take his chances. Still, Simon kept chipping away. When Isner missed an easy volley at the net, Simon got his chance to pull back a set with Isner on his second serve. But the American kept his cool, and his forehand winner down the line got him out of danger. Earlier, the sixth-ranked Tsonga found it tough at times against Harrison. The Americans aggressive play forced Tsonga to hurry shots as he tried to shorten rallies. I hope I play better in my next game (against Isner on Sunday), Tsonga said. I had to battle and it worked out quite well for me. Despite losing that third set, I still tried to play my own game. Tsonga broke serve in the 12th game to take a laborious opening set in 54 minutes. He then began to find his range as Harrisons temper frayed. His major weakness is that he is very, very nervy, Tsonga said. I knew that if I held on longer than him, it would be to my advantage. Harrison smashed his racket into the ground following his double-fault that gave Tsonga a 3-1 lead in the second set. I never double-fault that much, which is funny, Harrison said. The sun was against me on that side, and so was the wind. No all-Willilams matchup after Stosur win CHARLESTON, S.C. Reigning U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur put the latest matchup in the Williams sisters sibling rivalry on hold by rallying past Venus Williams at the Family Circle Cup. The second-seeded Stosur won five of the last six games of the match for a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 victory in the quarterfinals on a chilly, windy Friday at the seasons first clay-court event. Stosur now has a chance at knocking out both Williams sisters on consecutive days when she meets Serena in Saturdays semifinals. While Stosur had never beaten Venus Williams before, shes had success against Serena. Stosur beat her to win the U.S. Open title last September and won their only match on clay at the 2010 French Open quarters. For sure, clays not my favorite surface, said Stosur, the 2010 Family Circle champion. Its always tough playing Serena no matter where. Serena Williams advanced when opponent Sabine Lisicki twisted her left ankle early in the opening set and had to withdraw after five games. The buzz for a Williams sisters showdown had grown all week as the two Americans moved through the draw. Both came into Friday without losing a set and appeared ready to settle some family business at the Family Circle Tennis Center. This was Venus Williams first claycourt tournament since 2010 and her second event since a bout with the autoimmune disease Sjogrens Syndrome kept her out of the game since last summers U.S. Open.

Actress arrested on DUI suspicion LOS ANGELES Authorities said actress Amanda Bynes has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after she grazed a sheriffs patrol car. The 26year-old actress was arrested around 3 a.m. Friday in West Hollywood. The Los Angeles County sheriffs department said Bynes attempted to pass a patrol car making a right turn when she hit it. Deputies who arrested her suspect she was drunk at the time. Bynes is being held on $5,000 bail. Her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel did not immediately return a call and an email from The Associated Press. The actress appeared in the 2010 film Easy A and the Nickelodeon series What I Like About You. Deputies said there was paint damage to both cars, but no one was injured. Potential jurors asked about star CHICAGO Potential jurors in the Chicago trial of the man charged in the 2008 slayings of Jennifer Hudsons family members are being asked what they know about the singer and actress. A questionnaire released Friday to The Associated Press and other media includes several questions designed to gauge jurors familiarity with Hudson from her appearances on television and motion pictures to her live performances and things she has written. The questionnaire asks specifically if prospective jurors ever have watched American Idol, the TV show that brought her to fame, and the film Dreamgirls, for which she won an Academy Award. William Balfour is charged in the slaying of Hudsons mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew in the familys Chicago home.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Matt Lauer is sticking with NBCs Today, ending speculation that the top-rated show might have to face ABCs rising Good Morning America without him. Lauer has signed a long-term contract to remain as co-host of the No. 1 morning show, a long-anticipated deal that NBC announced Thursday night but Lauer made public on Today Friday morning. This is my family, he said on the air as the Today crew and co-anchors burst into applause. Truth be told, he joked, I was developing an idea for a new show, where viewers could tune in every morning and see someone they know lose a little more of his hair every single day right in front of their eyes. But then I thought, I could just stay here and do that. Although Today is on a historic winning streak in the ratings, Good Morning America has been gaining ground. Lauers decision provides important stability for Today and puts to rest suggestions that he might reunite with his former co-host Katie Couric on the syndicated show shes launching this fall. Lauer said last May that he had discussed joining with Couric on a new venture. But he predicted then that he would be staying at Today for a long time. Given how strong the Today show has been, I dont think the outcome was ever in doubt, said industry analyst Larry Gerbrandt of Los Angeles-based Media Valuation Partners. Lauer has been a fixture with the show since 1994 and began his run as co-anchor inJanuary 1997. He has created a popular Today catchphrase with his globe-hopping Where in the world is Matt Lauer? segments. Today has remained No. 1 in the weekly ratings since 1995. Over at ABC, archrival Good Morning America gave Lauer an attaboy on its Friday telecast. Matt, you set the bar so high every day, said co-host George Stephanopoulos in voicing his congratulations. Beside him sat Couric, who, now at ABC, has been subbing as co-host on GMA all week. She passed along her own greetings to her old partner-in-crime, and announced that GMA had sent Lauer a bucket of golf balls as a gift. Take all the time off to perfect your golf game, Stephanopoulos proposed. For broadcast networks, morning represents one of the most important parts of the day. The shows are hugely profitable at a time of declining TV viewership, and none has been more of a cash cow than Today. A recent report said Lauer could end up with a $25 million deal, but NBC President Steve Capus dismissed the speculation as complete silliness, The New York Times said. NBC declined to provide further details Thursday on the contract. The morning scene drew increased attention this week as the NBC and ABC programs featured dueling celebrity co-hosts: Today had Sarah Palin for a day, while Couric spent the week filling in at GMA. Flagged in advance, Lauers announcement Friday was likely to also serve as a ratings stunt against his one-time colleague. Palin, the former Alaska governor, helped Today maintain its winning streak against GMA on Tuesday, but Wednesday proved a cautionary tale for NBC. With Couric on board, Good Morning America was able to claim a oneday victory in viewership over Today. About 5.24 million viewers watched GMA, while 5.15 million viewers tuned into Today, according to the Nielsen Co. Lauer sticks with Today Birthday Your leadership qualities could become much stronger in the year ahead than theyve ever been. There are some strong indications that youll create and oversee a daring, innovative enterprise. Aries (March 21-April 19) Although you can accomplish a lot for yourself right now, it might not be a good day to mend fences with a co-worker. The other party needs much more time to be able to heal. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Instead of doing things that could add to your resources and turn a profit, you might do anything but. Dont let your emotions override your common sense. Gemini (May 21-June 20) The only way to get others to follow you is to lead by example. If you attempt to be overly assertive or dictatorial, all youll do is create more problems for yourself. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If youre fearful of being taken advantage of by others, theres a chance you could conduct yourself in ways that exploit other people first. Dont do it. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Its generally unwise to do business with friends, but this could be one of those days when youll do so anyway. If thats what you feel you have to do, be extremely careful. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Take care not to do anything that makes you look good at the expense of another. Even if you get away with it for the moment, it will cost you dearly down the line. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Although you might do some nice things for others based on a personal desire to get something from them, nothing will change and the world will treat you the same as it always did. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if you usually do everything for yourself, you might have to depend on others to open doors for you at this time. Unfortunately, their priorities and yours could differ. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) When it comes to partnership arrangements, youre going to have to be firm and decisive in order to succeed at getting what you want. If you arent, you wont. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Dont look to others to quell your emotional distress, because it isnt likely they would be up to that kind of assignment. Only time will heal what ails you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Avoid at all costs arguing with friends over silly, minor social issues. An innocent discussion could quickly turn nasty if someone says the wrong thing. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If you hope to finalize a matter of critical importance, it is going to take strong willpower on your part. Coasting along wont work this time.

Spotlight on PEOPLE Florida LOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 E NTERTAINMENT Page B6 SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 Associated PressLOS ANGELES Theres a hint of mature romance or at least hot sex involving older folks in the latest sequel to American Pie. American Reunion brings back the comedy ensemble from the 1999 grossout hit and includes a comical hookup between Eugene Levy, who plays Jason Biggs squarer-thansquare dad, and Jennifer Coolidge, who plays Seann William Scotts boy-seducing mom. It all starts as Biggs Jim, home for a high school reunion, tries to get his widower dad out of the house for a change. Levy ends up at a party at the home of Scott Stifler, whose mom wound up in the sack with her sons classmate Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) in the original movie. Stiflers mom needs to grow and progress and actually hook up with something more promising, and I love that I would hook up with Jims dad, Coolidge said in an interview alongside Levy. For Jims dad, who spent much of the first three movies awkwardly trying to help his son through embarrassing sexual issues, his evening with Stiflers mom is like nothing hes ever experienced before in his straight-laced life. He realizes he kind of screwed up somewhere along the line with his kid and didnt explain things properly or whatever,Levy said, so he tries to help his son out in as helpful a way as he possibly can. Levy and Coolidges scene together is a reunion for the two, who have collaborated on the mock documentary comedies Best in Show, A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration. They co-starred in the ensemble spoofs, which Levy also co-wrote. If the American Pie franchise continues with more movies, the two could even end up together, Levy and Coolidge speculated. I would think hes not the kind of guy who would probably stay single, Levy said. If hes not with Stiflers mom, then hes out trying to reform some hooker some place, I dont know. Hes had an experience with Stiflers mom that I dont think hes ever quite had in his life, and how that affects him down the line, I dont know, outside of just making him generally happier.

He came back to life A bout six or so years ago, I met a man who said he saw a dead man raised to life. The dead mans name was Bob and the man who told me about it said God had told him to go to Bobs house to pray. He didnt know Bob had died until he got there, but since God had told him to pray, he figured hed better do it. So, he asked Bobs wife if he could see him. The man had seen death before, and Bob was dead. Even so, the man started praying because God had told him so. All of a sudden, Bob took a breath, or as the man described it, He sucked all the air out of the room. After that, Bob wasnt dead anymore.

The very act of eating itself is considered holy and is sanctified by blessings before and after meals. Even the choice of comestibles has certain rules and regulations. For instance, shellfish and pork are not allowed, and red meat and poultry have to be ritually slaughtered in such a way as to cause as little pain and suffering to the animal as possible. This is called kashering, and the food that traditional Jews eat has to be certified that it meets certain Jewish standards. Food thus allowed is called kosher. Among the more liberal branches, even the business practices and raising conditions of the food preparations are taken into consideration, so that free range chickens are preferred over those inhumanely raised in confined areas. All Jewish holidays have special foods associated with them, but Passover stands in the foreground when it comes to symbolic choices.

At its height, the Brownsville Revival drew as many as 5,500 people a night for six years estimates put the total between 2.5 million and 4.5 million people. Donations poured in as the Brownsville Assembly of God added staff, built a massive new sanctuary and opened a school for preachers. In the decade after being the home of the largest Pentecostal outpouring in U.S. history, the church has been on the edge of financial ruin. It racked up $11.5 million in debt, to be paid after the out-of-town throngs and its former pastor moved on. The red ink is mostly unknown outside the congregation. Every Monday I find out what the (Sunday) offering was and we decide what we can pay this week, said the Rev. Evon Horton, Brownsvilles current pastor. The good news is last week we paid our mortgage. The bad news is it drained our bank accounts. The paid staff is down to six from around 50, and the newsletter is printed monthly instead of weekly. About 800 to 1,000 worshippers total attend two Sunday services, but most pews go empty in the 2,200-seat sanctuary. Another 2,600-seat sanctuary built just for the revival is used for a gym, community classes and storage. The church has trimmed millions off its debt by selling property and slashing expenses, and its raising money to pay off the remaining $6.5 million. Horton said its a wonder a blessing from God, really that the church has survived so long. Its the hardest thing Ive ever dealt with in 30 years of ministry, he said. Almost three years after the revival trickled down to its last nightly service in 2001, the longtime former pastor, the Rev. John Kilpatrick, moved on. He now runs a bustling church and traveling revival ministry based across the state line in Daphne, Ala. Kilpatrick said Brownsville was never the wealthy church many assumed during the revival years, so loans were the only way to From revival to red ink Church that hosted historic Pentecostal outpouring now struggles with debt JOHN DAVID MERCER /Associated Press Churchgoers at the Brownsville Assembly raise their hands in praise as senior pastor the Rev. Evon Horton preaches to his congr egation during service in Pensacola, Fla. The church that was home to the largest Pentecostal outpouring in U.S. history is on the edge of financial ruin. Religion NOTES The revival that drew some 5,500 people nightly at its height saddled the Brownsville Assembly congregation with an $11.5 million debt that members were left to pay off after both the out-of-town throngs and the former Rev. John Kilpatrick moved on. The red ink is mostly unknown outside the congregation. See REVIVAL / Page C6

pay for growth. He said the church fell deeper into debt after he departed and membership dropped. I resigned (from) the church, and I never would have left if I knew the struggles it was going to have, he said. A lot has changed since the revivals beginning on Fathers Day 1995. Ken Griffin, who first came to the church 36 years ago as a surfer and is now a board member, still marvels at what happened that day. Kilpatrick brought in visiting evangelist Steve Hill and something stirred. He just asked a simple question, like If anyone really wants to get refreshed and get closer to God, then come up to the altar, Griffin said. As he started praying for people, all kinds of things started happening. ... People were falling out and people were just getting ministered to, and the next thing we know its 4 oclock in the afternoon. Word spread of people being miraculously healed and converted, and revival services were soon held four and five nights a week. People waited in long lines to get inside the church, located in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Pensacola, a Gulf Coast city known for training naval aviators. The church began buying up nearby houses and razing them for parking, Horton said. It took in millions in donations and revenue from items like music CDs, but the church used mortgages to expand rather than cash. Youd think that money was just flowing into the place, Kilpatrick said. But it wasnt.The Pensacola NewsJournal raised questions at the time about the revivals finances and claims of miraculous healings, but the crowds kept coming. Horton said hes still unsure what happened to all the money, but hes concentrating on the future. What good would it do me? he asked. Kilpatrick said he doesnt recall the financial details, but hes saddened by his old churchs struggles. Many times when a pastor leaves churches begin to get into a struggle, he said. Thats what happened at Brownsville. I just hate for them that it happened. Kilpatrick went on to found the Church of His Presence in Daphne, about 50 miles west of Pensacola. In 2010, he began the Bay Revival with another traveling evangelist, Nathan Morris. Records from the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability show John Kilpatrick Ministries is a subsidiary of Partners in Revival Ministries, which he founded in 1996 during the Brownsville Revival. The organization listed net assets of $1.4 million in 2010, but it ran a $40,000 deficit that year, with revenues of $941,588 and expenses of $981,588. Kilpatrick is trying to grow his current ministry. In a February talk posted on his churchs website, Kilpatrick asked for extra money to pay a $9,000 deficit from a recent revival in Orlando; to purchase a second TV production truck for $250,000; and to help the church pay its bills. He also lamented the cost of maintaining two homes near the Alabama coast, which tax records show are worth about $1 million total. Speaking directly into the camera, Kilpatrick said: You know were not a money people; Ive never been a money grubber. Never asked for money. I dont even like taking offerings. Ill ask for pastors to ask for offerings when we go out. I dont like to take em. I dont even like to talk about em. This is killing me for me to have to talk about this right now, but I have to do it. Cause weve gotta get this message out to the world. The problems at Brownsville look familiar to Howard Snyder, a professor at Tyndale Seminary in Toronto who has studied revivals. When the dust settles after a spirited revival, churches can be left with divisions and no long-term plan. Revivals may produce rapid growth, he wrote in an email. But new converts or adherents need teaching, discipling, spiritual formation over time, and often the churchs leadership fails to understand this and provide for it. So very easily, what goes up comes back down. Back at Brownsville, remaining parishioners are embracing a new calling to pay off their debt and minister to the impoverished community around them. This revival touched the world but not this community, Horton said. In a fundraising effort that Horton said came to him from God in a dream, the church is trying to raise about $7 million by getting people to give $1,000 each for debt relief. Donors names will be engraved in a walk of faith around the old sanctuary. We can be debt-free if just 7,000 of the millions of people who attended the revival help out, Horton said. Robert Helms Jr., a church volunteer and retired Navy aviator, said the church is trying to move ahead without bitterness. He directs a community center located in the old overflow sanctuary, where pews now hold old lamps destined for Habitat for Humanity homes. They offer day care, GED classes, youth basketball games, womens self-defense and computer training for the neighborhood. We need to stop worrying about the debt, and weve kind of put that on the back burner, Helms said. Weve said we want to reach this community, and the Lord has graciously given us all these people. Now, the question (from God) is What are you going to do with them? C6 S ATURDAY, A PRIL 7, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE R ELIGION CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED HE IS RISEN!

To this day I dont know if that really happened. The man who told me is a Pentecostal preacher, and stuff like miracle healings and resurrections tend to happen when theyre involved. They tend to believe that a dead man can get up and walk. Im not Pentecostal, but I do believe one instance where that happened before. On Sunday the world will celebrate it. Let me say right here that I love Easter I love it more than Christmas. Theres nothing about the holiday that makes me sad or nostalgic, no unmet expectations, no guilt over traditions that Ive neglected to pass on to my children. Just Cadbury Creme Eggs, jelly beans and the celebration of a once-dead man who got up and walked out of a sealed tomb and changed the world forever. Heres something that I think about often: The Bible says that the same power that raised Jesus from death is the same power that is at work for us who believe (Ephesians 1:19). Feel powerless? The same power that gave life to a dead man three days worth of dead is the same power that God uses on our behalf, in us, through us, for us, because of us. That power is what enables a person to have faith to begin with, to believe the most outlandish story that God stepped away from his throne in heaven to become a man by being born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, then took all the sins of humanity upon himself past, present and future died a brutal death in their place, came back to life three days later, then 40 days after that returned to heaven where he had always lived. It takes incredible power to believe such a story. Thats resurrection power. Its resurrection power that changes a human heart, enables liars to stop lying, haters to stop hating. Resurrection power breaks the power of sin, takes away the craving for revenge, the lust for attention and approval and the need for control. Resurrection power has kept me from destroying people with my tongue. Many times Ive wanted to annihilate someone and I open my mouth to curse and out pops kindness instead. Thats power that isnt natural. Its supernatural and its a gift. Resurrection power turns sadness into celebration, makes the impossible possible. Hearts of stone turn soft and pliable. Insecure and fearful hearts find security and peace. Resurrection power turns God-haters and the God-indifferent into God-worshippers and truth lovers. It changes the self-centered to other-focused. Not all at once, but changed nonetheless. Resurrection power removes the dreadful fear of death. I used to be terrified of death (and almost as terrified of living). But somehow, for reasons God only knows, I was given the power and the grace to believe that a dead man came back to life. Because I believe, death has lost its sting for me. God has promised that one day after Im long dead and worm food, I, too, will get up and walk into eternity. I know. It sounds utterly ridiculous, but not to those who have experienced resurrection power. For us, its the gospel. Its Easters good news.

The seder foods are supposed to provide the participants in the seder with the feelings and emotions one would feel if one were a slave. To begin with, some people serve chopped hardboiled eggs in salt water. Eggs, especially at this Passover and Easter time of year, represent birth and the cycle of life. They also are a symbol of mourning (often served at Jewish funerals). The salt water stands for the tears shed while in slavery. On the seder table is a plate with six symbolic foods: roasted egg, shank bone, greens, horseradish, orange and a mixture called haroset. The egg has already been explained, but an additional explanation for the egg is that it stands for the special Passover offering made in the ancient Temple at this time of year. The shank bone represents the roasted lamb eaten with bitter herbs (horseradish) on the eve of redemption from slavery in Egypt. The lambs blood was used to smear over the lintels of the Israelite homes so that God would pass over their homes and not smite their first-born sons. The lamb was later eaten as a meal. The bitter herbs signify the bitterness of slavery. The greens symbolize hope and the promise of spring and are dipped in salt water as a remembrance of the Reed Sea, which split to allow the Israelites to escape to freedom. The haroset, in Eastern European tradition, consists of apples, cinnamon, nuts and wine, which are ground together to represent the mortar that was used in the brick laying for the construction of Pharaohs storehouses, which the Israelites were compelled to build. The orange is a modern addition. Because Judaism is an evolving civilization, the orange has come to stand for the disenfranchised people in our own day, namely women and those of different sexual orientations. Perhaps the most famous food eaten on Passover is the matzah. Often called the Bread of Affliction, this flat bread, actually a cracker, was used as a staple food for the Israelites journey because they had no time for their bread to rise. Matzah is eaten for the entire duration of the holiday (eight days), as no leaven food is allowed. Matzah and its various forms, meal, crushed or bite-sized, is used throughout the holiday in various recipes. What is served at the seder meal is also steeped in tradition, but is not necessarily ritually mandated. For instance, the Eastern European tradition that most American Jews descend from will begin the meal with gefilte fish. This is cold-water carp and/or whitefish chopped with matzah meal, seasonings and egg and boiled in a broth. Quite delicious if you have grown up with it, but I always tease Jews by choice when they refuse to eat it! Others will begin with chopped chicken liver, sort of like pate loaded with cholesterol, but very tasty! My favorite dish is chicken soup. All nationalities make this, but I happen to think that the Jewish version made by a Jewish mother is the best! (To be fair, I also believe that an Italian nona makes the best lasagna!) Into this golden broth are put dumplings called matzah balls. These are made with eggs, oil, seasonings and matzah meal. (Or you can use a mix!) Light and fluffy, they are a special treat! The meat served is usually turkey, chicken or beef. Some people have now opted for vegetarian choices. Vegetables are spring choices such as asparagus, green beans or carrots. Certain beans (like limas or kidney) or peas or corn are not allowed due to the fact that they are considered leavened foods. A favorite dessert is sponge cake made with special matzah meal cake flour and as many as eight to twelve eggs to give it leavening and lightness. Chocolate macaroons, commercially made, are also popular. As we approach the Passover and Easter season, may we eat at the table of love and understanding, drink from the cups of peace and salvation and relish the freedom we have as Americans.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County Steak & Steak Dinner was a success. It was a well-attended, fun evening and raised money for a great cause, the kids of Citrus County. With the help of our speaker, Doug Johnson, and the auctioneering expertise of our Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and the generosity of those who opened their purses and wallets, the amount raised was the second highest in Steak & Steak history. Since the needs of Citrus County kids are so many, however, we move on to the next fundraiser for Boys & Girls Club members, the Taste of Inverness. The Taste of Inverness will also be a super, fun-filled evening. On April 14, two huge white tents will be set up behind the city of Inverness Government Building. Lights will twinkle and the aromas of delicious food will perfume the air. Inverness restaurants will invite us to taste their best dishes and music will play in the background while people mingle, sip wine or beer or sodas, and otherwise enjoy an elegant evening. Tickets for $25 to the event which starts at 5:30 p.m., may be purchased from any Boys & Girls Club Board member, at Cadence Banks throughout the county, Tally-Ho Vacations and Ink-for-Less in Inverness, at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County website at www.citrus bgc.com, or by calling 352621-9225. Adding to the elegance of the evening will be the exhibit of paintings by Inverness artists Jeanette Berndsen, Marian Fox, Susi La Forsch, Connie Phillips, Vicki Pritchard, Rebecca Pujals-Jones, Kim Shields and Michelle Wirt. Money raised from all Boys & Girls Club fundraisers help to keep the three Boys & Girls Club sites open with afterschool, before-school, and summer and holiday camp programs.

The county commission wanted to acknowledge the recent improvements made at the beach, including the new bathroom renovations and the sand renourishm ent project. The new restroom facility was completed in September 2011. An arsonist destroyed the bathrooms in October 2010. From left are: Rafa el Del Valle, Parks and Recreation manager; Commissioner Dennis Damato; Commissioner Rebecca Bays; Chairman Winn Webb; Commissioner Joe Meek; and M ike Howell, (incoming) Parks and Recreation manager. The Fort Island Gulf Beach sand renourishment project has been in place since 1983. This last renourishment project was completed March 24. Ribbon cutting at Fort Island Gulf Beach Special to the ChronicleApril 7, 1962, was a wonderful day for Albert and Marilyn (Crum) Jordan they were married that day at the First Baptist Church in Bushnell, Sumter County, Fla., where Marilyns pioneer family has lived since 1842. They began their married life in Inverness, where Albert was born and raised. He worked for Bob and Norine Gilstrap at Home Furniture Store, and Marilyn began her career with the City of Inverness. After 38 fulfilling years with the city, Marilyn retired in 2003 as city clerk and Albert retired from self employment in his TV antenna business. They have enjoyed retirement, but reflect on the wonderful memories they have of raising their two boys, Bruce and Keith. Bruce lives in Bushnell on the Crum family homestead where Marilyn was raised, and Keith, his wife, Pam, and daughters Taylor and Paige, live in Inverness. Albert and Marilyn have enjoyed some travel, but will tell you that spending time with their granddaughters, following their sports, and various school functions, is the most fulfilling use of their time. They are active in their church, the First Baptist of Inverness, where Marilyn serves as Trustee. Albert serves on the Citrus County Mosquito Control Board, 4-H Foundation Board and Citrus County Fair Board. Marilyn serves on the Advisory Council for Citrus Memorial Hospital Foundation and continues to be involved in other community activities. They will celebrate their 50th anniversary on Easter Sunday at their home with their extended families, and have a week planned this summer with their children, daughter-in-law and granddaughters. Jordans to celebrate golden anniversary Couple an active force in this area Special to the Chronicle LEFT: Marilyn Crum and Albert Jordan were wed April 7, 1962. RIGHT: The Jordans have lived in this area all their lives.

C8 S ATURDAY, A PRIL 7, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Napoleon Bonaparte, surely the most famous resident of the Mediterranean isle of Elba, said, Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. At the bridge table, it is an art to give your opponent a chance to make a mistake. In todays deal, how should the play go in four hearts after West leads the club jack? It is a matter of personal preference what you open with that South hand. Some would begin with one heart, arguing that if they bid four hearts, they might miss a slam. As against that, opening one heart might allow West into the auction with a onespade overcall, and perhaps the opponents can make four spades or have a cheap sacrifice. And since a slam is mathematically unlikely, socking it to the opponents with four hearts would be the choice of most experts. Since the opening lead marks East with the club ace, declarer is in danger only if East takes the first trick and shifts to a high diamond, with West holding that ace. Then South could lose one club and three diamonds. To try to reduce that risk, declarer should call for dummys low club at trick one. Some Easts would automatically make the mistake of playing low. Then South would win at least one overtrick, since West cannot profitably shift to diamonds. But East should notice the strong aroma of rodent wafting across the table. What is declarer doing? He must want to keep East off the lead. So East should overtake with his club ace and switch to the diamond queen. In a class I ran earlier this year, every South covered with dummys club queen, but most Easts won and returned a club!

(N) (Live)30 RockScrubs D ear Annie : My 64-year-old brother has refused to talk to my 86-year-old father for nearly 10 years. When our mother died, Dad married a nice Christian widow. He then sold the family home. He and his new wife built a new one in another town. My brother still thinks Dad should have split the sale profit with his children since half the house belonged to our mother. As far as I am concerned, Dad was not obligated to do this. By law, my mothers assets passed to her surviving spouse, which means Dad owned the house outright. He lives solely on his Social Security benefits and needed the money. My brother has had multiple sclerosis for 30 years. He and his family struggled financially, and my parents gave them a lot of money over the years to keep them afloat. For my brother to want more is shocking. My other siblings and I dont feel entitled to any of Dads money. My brothers children are grown. When his daughter married four years ago, he didnt invite Dad to the wedding. She is expecting a child, and Dad learned about it through other family members. He is deeply hurt by this. Dads health is starting to deteriorate. He has tried to make contact with my brother several times, to no avail. My siblings are ready to give up. Our brother spends no holidays with us and doesnt get in touch for any reason. I suggested Dad leave him alone. There is nothing he can do at this point. Do you agree? If not, what do you suggest? Puzzled in Indiana Dear Indiana: How sad that your brother is willing to abandon his family over money. After 10 years, its doubtful he will rethink his sense of entitlement. We suggest you keep in touch on a Christmas-card level, sending birthday wishes once a year, keeping him updated about Dads health. He may not respond, but it requires only minimal effort and leaves the door open should he ever change his mind. Dear Annie : Is it OK to tell a woman that her husband had a three-year affair? I have ample proof because the Other Woman happens to be a dear friend of mine. The husband is the most selfish person I have ever met. If it were me, I would absolutely want to know. However, I understand that not all women are like me. The Other Woman would rather not speak up, although she would tell the truth if asked. However, I believe that ship has sailed. The wife once had suspicions, but her manipulative husband managed to convince her otherwise. So, should I tell her or not? Unsure in Miami Dear Unsure : Some women can live with the illusion that their husbands are faithful even if they suspect otherwise, but having the truth shoved in their faces makes them angry not with the husband, but with the messenger. You obviously dont like this man and would enjoy seeing him suffer, but the news would mostly hurt his wife. If there is a chance she has contracted an STD from her philandering husband, she should be told. Otherwise, please stay out of it. Dear Annie : My heart goes out to Lonely in New York, the 70years-young lady who would be happy kissing, hugging, cuddling and having a sex life. I am in a similar situation with my wife. You should put the two of us together, thereby solving two problems at the same time, without either of us having to leave our marriages. How about it? Lonely in Kelowna DearLonely: Sorry, but we dont run a matchmaking service. And there are inherent risks in connecting anonymous readers with each other. Please find a better solution to your problem than cheating on your wife.

Navy jet crashes into Va. housing complex Associated PressVIRGINIA BEACH, Va. Two Navy pilots ejected from a fighter jet Friday, sending their unmanned plane careening into a Virginia Beach apartment complex and engulfing several buildings in flames. The plane had dumped loads of fuel before crashing, though it wasnt clear if that was because of a malfunction or an intentional maneuver by the pilots, said Capt. Mark Weisgerber with U.S. Fleet Forces Command. Seven people were injured, including both pilots, though all were expected to survive. Authorities were still combing through the wreckage of some 40 apartment units, and they said some residents of the complex still had not been accounted for. The pilots were a student and an instructor, Weisgerber said. Bruce Nedelka, the Virginia Beach EMS division chief, said that witnesses saw fuel being dumped from the jet before it went down, and that fuel was found on buildings and vehicles in the area. The plane not having as much fuel on board mitigated what could have been an absolute massive, massive fireball and fire, Nedelka said. With all of that jet fuel dumped, it was much less than what it could have been. The crash happened in the Hampton Roads area, which has a large concentration of military bases, including Naval Station Norfolk, the largest naval base in the world. Naval Air Station Oceana, where the F/A-18D that crashed was assigned, is in Virginia Beach. Dozens of police cars, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles filled the densely populated neighborhood where the plane crashed. Yellow fire hoses snaked through side streets as fire crews poured water on the charred rooftops of brick apartment houses. By late afternoon, the fire had been put out. Residents of the apartment complex described a confusing scene and an apologetic pilot. Colby Smith said his house started shaking and then the power went out, as he saw a red and orange blaze outside his window. He ran outside, where he saw billowing black smoke and then came upon the pilot as he ran to a friends home. I saw the parachute on the house and he was still connected to it, and he was laying on the ground with his face full of blood, Smith told WVEC-TV. The pilot said, Im sorry for destroying your house. Smith said he and another man helped the pilot onto the street. Patrick Kavanaugh, who lives in the complex where the jet crashed, opened up his sliding glass door after hearing a loud explosion and saw one of the jets pilots on the ground with blood on his face. Kavanaugh said the pilot, whom he described as a young boy, was very upset and apologetic. Tower comes down NANCYKENNEDY Staff Writer INVERNESS As boys, Albert Jordan, Charlie Dean and a bunch of their friends used to play at the water tower on the corner of N. Citrus Avenue and Zephyr Street in Inverness. I lived next door to it, said State Sen. Dean. A lot of youngsters used to play on it and climb it, but I never did I was too chicken. Id get to the first rung and that was about as high as I could get. Jordan, too, said he never climbed it, but Dean said their friend John Dampier, now deceased, climbed it all the time and hid his comic books on top of it. At 5 p.m., when Mr. Dampier came home from his department store on Main Street, Dean said John could be seen racing down the tower so he wouldnt get caught. This week, the antiquated water tower came down. Last week, as part of a cooperative deal between the city of Dunnellon and the city of Inverness, the 1936 water tower in Dunnellon was dismantled. Each city received a reduced cost of about $12,000 from Pittsburg Tank & Tower Maintenance of Henderson, Ky. A sacred time Passover 101: Why is this night different from any other? Friday night marked the beginning of Passover, one of the most sacred holidays observed by Jews around the world lasting seven days in Israel and eight in the rest of the world. Here are some basic tenets of the holiday: As recorded in the Bible, Passover commemorates the time when the Israelites were slaves in Egypt; and when Pharaoh refused to let them leave, God sent 10 plagues. The 10th plague was the death of every firstborn male, and the only way to escape the angel of death was to sacrifice an unblemished lamb, take its blood and smear it over the doorpost of the house. When the angel saw the blood, he passed over that house and the firstborn sons were spared. Prior to the weeklong holiday, Jews conduct a meticulous ritual cleansing of every inch of their Bonnie Merritt: Positive and happy Workers from Pittsburg Tank & Tower Maintenance dismantle the decades-old water tower in Inverness on Friday morning.

Marson Kay was with a group of divers who went into a cavern with several tight rock formations on Saturday. During their ascent, investigators said Kay became disoriented and got stuck in an opening that was too small to swim through. The Tampa Bay Times reported the other divers couldnt pull Kay out. So they swam to the surface and sought help. A rescue team went into the water, but Kay was already dead when they reached him. The medical examiner determined Kay did not drown, but suffered an air embolism. Hernando County Sheriffs investigators said Kay was a certified diver.

script, held the hands of those who needed her special brand of comfort. Madeline Bonnie Merritt died April 1 at Woodland Terrace in Hernando. She was 95. Above all, Bonnie believed in being positive. Gratefulness defined her life. She instilled gratitude in us, daughter Wesleyanne said on behalf of her three sisters Susan, Pauline and Bonnie at their mothers memorial service Wednesday. She taught us to be thankful, to love God, to sing together. I have gratitude in my heart because of my mother. In her room at Woodland Terrace, her home since 2001, a trumpet hung on the wall beside Bonnie Merritts bed. Born in Boston, she learned to play the trumpet as a young girl and worked her way through college as a music major at the University of Massachusetts playing trumpet solos. She met her husband, the late Wesley Merritt who was also a musician, while playing he often accompanied her on the piano. They were married for 53 years and they both taught school in Vermont where Bonnie was named Teacher of the Year for 1966-67 and was one of 33 teachers nationwide to qualify as National Teacher of the Year. She came to Florida because her oldest daughter loved it. She told the Chroniclein 2009, I lived in Vermont, and you know, its very cold there, and the people are cold. But the people in Florida are warm and friendly, just like the climate. She lived in Homosassa for many years. She was a devout member of the First Church of Christ Scientist. She had an incredible memory and could recite long passages of scripture and entire poems, such as If by Rudyard Kipling. One of her favorite groups of people was her PEO chapter, her PEO sisters. At one time she served as the philanthropic groups chaplain. She was the one who would send cards to ailing members or those having a birthday. When she stopped driving, I would drive her, said Pauline Gerbino. She would say, Tell me something I dont know about this person, and shed write a personalized poem. She was amazing. She would tell me wonderful stories, and she had such insight and wisdom. Not one to let age stop her, Bonnie began sketching at 79. In 1987 she wrote a book, Have A Happy. When she taught school, as the dismissal bell rang shed tell her students, Have a happy. A little boy once told her, Have a nice. She was part of a ukulele band called the Kool Kats, which was later changed to Strings and Things. At one time she played in almost every nursing home in Citrus County. Prior to coming to Woodland Terrace, Bonnie broke her hip line dancing to Rocky Top, but that didnt stop her. When she moved into the facility, she determined she was there to make a difference and she did. She started the honor board that spotlights a different resident each month. People come in and they see us in chairs, see that were aged, she had said. But they dont know who we were. Thanks to Bonnie, they did. She started writing a monthly newsletter, The Terrace Tattler, and served as president of the residents council. She saw herself as an advocate and a sounding board. She was all about giving people dignity and purpose. The one thing that frustrated her was not being able to make others as positive and grateful as she was. She hated seeing people just sit, waiting for the hours to go by. She was my mentor, said Leilani Saumell. I didnt start nursing school until I was 56, and Bonnie kept telling me I could do it. She called me her other daughter, and I still have every letter she ever wrote me. She was the most loving person I ever met.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2927.A2SATURDAY, APRIL7, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE/LOCAL POOLS/PAVERS Lic. & Insured CPC1456565 352-400-3188 YOUR INTERLOCKING BRICK PAVER SPECIALIST Build your new pool now and be ready for next summer!

Smith has made a name for himself statewide as the lawmaker behind mandatory drug tests. Last year Smith, R-Inverness, championed a bill that required welfare recipients to take drug tests. That law is now being challenged in court. This year the Legislature approved and Gov. Rick Scott signed a Smith bill to allow random drug tests for state employees. Some political newspaper columnists, most notably theMiami HeraldsCarl Hiassen, criticized legislators for passing a bill for drug testing state employees but excluding lawmakers. Hiassen took particular aim at Smith and his refusal to accept an amendment that would include drug testing for legislators. It was found to be unconstitutional to drug test elected officials because it prevents us, as citizens, from having that First Amendment right, Smith said, according to the column. Hiassen wrote Smith was referring to a 1997 U.S. Supreme Court case that struck down a Georgia law to drug test political candidates for office as being a violation of their Fourth Amendment rights of privacy. Based on that column, The Tampa Bay TimesPolitiFact researched a similar Smith quote uttered during a House committee debate over the drug testing bill. When Democrat lawmakers pressed Smith to explain why he would not support an amendment that included legislators in the drug-testing law, Smith said: Because it is succinctly decided by the U.S. Supreme Court that drug testing elected officials would violate the First Amendment right of freedom of speech by being elected. PolitiFact researched the quote and gave it a false one step above pants on fire on its Truth-O-Meter. According to politifact.com, Smith was referring to Chandler vs. Miller, a 1997 Supreme Court decision that overturned a Georgia law requiring drug testing for statewide candidates within 30 days of qualifying for the ballot. The court threw out the law as being a violation of the Fourth Amendment, which protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. Smith made the claim that elected officials have a special First Amendment protection from being tested for drugs, PolitiFact said. No court has gone close to that far. In a Georgia case, the Supreme Court ruled that candidates for office not elected officials cannot be forced to take a drug test because it violates the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution thats not the one dealing with freedom of speech. Smith told the Chroniclehe disagrees with PolitiFact. He said that while the Supreme Court case didnt list First Amendment protections as a reason for its decision, it referred to freedom of speech in its ruling. In my research of this I feel it backs up my side, Smith said. I say the statement I made is correct. Its still what I believe. Smith noted that his actual reason for opposing a law requiring drug testing of lawmakers is its already allowed. Both the Senate president and speaker of the House have authority to order drug tests of legislators, he said.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com.

TheTampa Bay Times reported the council decided to postpone the vote on Thursday. Councilors are concerned that the citys proposed clean zone where many types of potential weapons would be banned is too large and that a proposed 60-minute time limit on parades and demonstrations in that area is unrealistic. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Green belt proposal raises hackles CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterResidents battled with their own property owners association Tuesday as the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission tried to make sense of a request to build on green belt land. Oak Village Association Inc., a property owners group within Sugarmill Woods, asked to change the designation of about 4.99 acres from nature belt to community facility to make it a site for a 4,000square-foot office building. The issue before the board was that about a dozen property owners opposed the application because it would use land designated as green belt. Where does this green belt come from? asked board member James Williams. Board member William Garvin asked if the subdivisions master plan with the county imposed any planning restrictions on green belt land. This is an old subdivision, said Joanna Coutu, principal planner. There are no standards that say that. We do have minimum setbacks requirements, but they didnt address whether green belt could be converted. That was the nub of the conflict: Neither the state nor the county has set aside green belt land. The green belt designation was created in the property owners deed restrictions, which the county does not enforce and cannot consider in the application. Ted Swope, president of the association, said property owners had voted overwhelmingly by 2 to 1 in favor of building the office. Ralph Stanzione, a member of the associations board of directors, said the group had been spending $25,000 a year rent for a building seven miles away from the neighborhood. Resident Deborah Christensen said she supported the application because the association had had four different leases for office space in the past. We need a permanent slot, Christensen said. Resident Kenneth Moody said the application was inappropriate from the deed restrictions, as the green belt is common property. According to the deed restrictions, construction can take place on a lot but not on common property, and all green belt was to stay intact and not be further subdivided. Resident Dr. Bruce Bryn said Swope gave misleading information about the vote. Most of those voting were property owners and not residents. Also, many who voted were voting in favor of the office building, but not the building site on green belt land. The board discussed why they were being asked for permission to build on green belt land. Williams said the land should be replatted before consideration for building, but Jenette Collins, land development division director, said the application was going through the correct process. Garvin did not like the site plan, but was told that the site plan was not the current consideration; just the change of designation. Board member Paul Wheeler said there was a lot of noise about the application, but it came down to one question: Is this use acceptable to this piece of property. But there is no piece of property, Williams replied. The board voted by 5 to 2 for approval with modified conditions, and the application will move to the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. The board approved an application to subdivide 215 acres along West Larue Denise Drive off U.S. 19 in Crystal River. Buyers of the nine lots would be responsible for the private road maintenance along with residents of Spring Run subdivision.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Residents battle with property owners association on designation change to allow for office building Since the beginning of 2012, the Inverness Highlands have experienced a vehicle burglary trend for which the Citrus County Sheriffs Office needs your help in solving. The suspect/suspects in these cases are entering unlocked vehicles during the night and removing anything of value. The vehicles have been unlocked, parked in the driveways of residences throughout the Highlands. Typically, these types of crimes are committed by thieves looking for an opportunity to obtain your property. Thieves will walk through an area with multiple vehicles and begin pulling on car door handles in an attempt to find one that is unsecured. Once a vehicle is found to be unlocked, the thief will enter the vehicle and quickly remove anything that appears to be valuable, such as global positioning systems (GPS), radios, firearms, jewelry or currency. In the cases reported during this trend, items stolen from vehicles include: GPS units, iPad tablets, iPod mp3 players, a gold and diamond tester, a Remington 1911 pistol, a Florida Gators wallet, a birth certificate and Social Security card, sunglasses, a virtual reality camera monitor, a Guardian generator, a DVD player, a Nextel cell phone, a Samsung touch cell phone, compact discs, a Compaq Presario laptop computer, a Century safe, a blue butterfly-shaped lock box, Susan B. Anthony coins, a French coin, a silver dollar, multiple purses, multiple credit cards and U.S. currency. The vast majority of burglaries that occur in Citrus County take place in unsecured vehicles and residences. Please do your part to prevent becoming a victim by keeping your vehicles and residences locked at all times. Refrain from leaving valuables in plain sight inside your vehicle; doing so only entices thieves to break in and steal those items. Please report any suspicious persons or activity in your neighborhood to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office by dialing 911 so deputies can respond and investigate. We need your help in preventing crime, and we would much rather investigate suspicious activity than investigate a crime that could have been prevented or caught in progress. If you have any information about these vehicle burglaries in the Inverness Highlands, please contact Det. Craig Callahan at 352-726-4488, or contact CrimeStoppers of Citrus County by calling 888-ANY-TIPS, texting the word CITRUS plus your tip to 274637 or visiting crimestopperscitrus.com.

However, when his doctor told him at 281 pounds he was pre-diabetic, had high blood pressure, his good cholesterol number was low and his bad cholesterol number was high, that got his attention. But it was having to test his blood glucose with a finger prick twice a day he hates needles that finally did it. In March 2011, Finch joined the local TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) group where his wife, Shiela, is leader, and in less than 13 months lost 66 pounds. Recently, Finch, 64, was named TOPS Best Male Loser for the state of Florida for his division, males 300 to 225 pounds. At this weeks regular meeting at Calvary Chapel in Inverness, district coordinator Jim Ferri congratulated him for his accomplishment. Youre an example, he told Finch. A retired trumpet player in the U.S. Army band, Finch said keeping his weight down while in the military was difficult. Once he retired, all constraints were off. He said it was nothing for him to eat a 3/4-pound burger and a double order of fries with half a bottle of ketchup on top. Last year, to see my belt buckle I had to use a mirror, he said. Also last year I was wearing size 44 blue jeans and now Im wearing size 34. He said theres really no secret to his weight loss other than reducing his portions and thinking about what he eats before he eats it and making a sensible choice. Now I can walk eight miles without stopping, he said. He said he still has about 10 pounds to go until he reaches KOPS status (Keeping Off Pounds Sensibly). All my life hearing people say, You need to lose weight got depressing. I felt belittled. But now I feel good, he said. It was my turn my way.

The poor guy was in shock. I checked for broken bones and opened wounds, said Kavanaugh, who spent 23 years in the rescue squad and retired in 1996. Despite having suffered several heart attacks and open-heart surgery, Kavanaugh said his old rescue skills kicked in as he dragged the pilot around the corner and away from the fire before several other explosions occurred. As authorities closed roads in the neighborhood, traffic backed up on side streets and on nearby Interstate 264, with slow-moving columns of vehicles bringing drivers to a virtual standstill early Friday afternoon. Edna Lukens, who works at the apartment complex across the street from the crash, said she saw three apartment buildings on fire. We heard this loud noise and we looked out the window and there was smoke all in the sky. Then the flames started going up in the sky, and then the apartment building just started burning and the police was called and everybody came out, Lukens said. Felissa Ezell, 71, was sitting in a folding chair outside her townhouse near the crash site Friday and recalled hearing the crash as she returned home earlier in the day. Oh, my God, I heard three really loud explosions, then the black smoke went up high in the sky, she said. The same model of fighter jet, an F/A-18D, crashed in December 2008 while returning to Marine Corps Air Station Miramar after a training exercise in a San Diego neighborhood. That crash killed four members of one family and destroyed two homes. The Marine Corps said the jet suffered a mechanical failure, but a series of bad decisions led the pilot a student to bypass a potentially safe landing at a coastal Navy base after his engine failed. The pilot ejected and told investigators he screamed in horror as he watched the jet plow into the neighborhood, incinerating two homes. A federal judge ordered the U.S. government to pay the family nearly $18 million in restitution. The tower hasnt been in use for about 20 years, said Katie Cottrell, Inverness Public Works director. We cant get the fire flow from it that we would need to support the system, and since were not going to ever use it plus its a safety hazard it doesnt make sense to spend money to fix it up because of nostalgia. At Tuesdays city council meeting, Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said the city had been talking about removing the tower for some time. Its no longer needed, he said. Even so, its been a landmark in Inverness for decades. Its part of the old part of Inverness, said city councilwoman Marti Consuegra. Its a street up from me I can see it from my front door. She said its always been how she gives people directions to her house. She tells them, as they drive into town from State Road 44, look for the water tower. Thats how youll find us, she would tell people. I know it needs to come down for safety reasons, but Ill miss it, she said. For me, coming home from someplace and seeing it from 44, its always meant Good. Were not far from home.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927.

Charoset, a mixture of fruit, nuts and wine, represents the mortar Jews used as slaves to make bricks Matzoh, or unleavened bread, is a reminder that the Israelites didnt have time to bake bread with yeast so they had to make cracker-like flat bread. Today, Jews grind up the matzoh to use in their Passover cooking to make everything from dumplings to chocolate cake. During one part of the Passover Seder, three matzohs are on a plate covered with a napkin. The middle one, called the afikomen, which symbolizes the Pesach, or Passover lamb, is removed, broken and wrapped in another napkin and hidden. Sometimes parents hide the afikomen for kids to search for; whoever finds it gets a prize. Later in the Seder when the afikomen is found, the broken piece is distributed to everyone at the table. Next, everyone drinks a cup of wine. Elijahs cup, a cup of wine, is set out and a door left open for the ancient prophet, who did not die but was taken to heaven in a chariot of fire.

Lecanto, FL On Hwy. 44 Next to Key Training Center (Look for the purple roof ) www.serenitydayspacitrus.com FOR BEAUTY & WELLNESS MM 9997 Its Time For You Associated PressFor the stock market, it was a triumphant first quarter. But for earnings growth, the past three months were just ho-hum. Analysts are expecting earnings for companies in the Standard & Poors 500 index to decline 0.1 percent compared to a year ago, according to FactSet. Its a tiny number but a significant turning point. Earnings growth was on a winning streak for the previous nine quarters. Year-over-year earnings growth has been at least 10 percent for all but the most recent period, when it was 6 percent. The reasons for the expected slowdown range from global (a weak Europe hurts everybody) to mathematical (its hard to top double-digit quarters). Whatever the cause, the stagnation in earnings growth is a stark reminder that the economys problems are far from solved. Just three months ago, analysts were predicting 3 percent earnings growth for the first quarter. Well soon see if the expectations are on target. Earnings season gets under way Tuesday when the aluminum producer Alcoa becomes the first major U.S. company to release its firstquarter results. Should this batch of earnings contain a lot of bad surprises, it could upend a stock market rally that pushed the S&P 500 index up 12 percent in the first three months of the year. Heres what you need to know:Are earnings really that bad? It depends on how you look at it. People are blaming the slowdown on several factors, including higher oil prices and Europes debt crisis. Those are legitimate concerns. High prices for oil and gas make it more expensive for companies to ship their products and leave people with less money to spend on other things. Europes debt crisis means that the U.S. cant sell as many products there. It also hurts fast-growing economies like China and India that export to Europe. That, in turn, affects U.S. companies that count on growth in emerging markets to boost their own sales. Keep in mind that this deceleration follows an extended period of big gains. Earnings surged 19 percent in the first quarter of 2011, and that was on top of 53 percent growth the year before as companies bounced back from a dismal first quarter of 2009. Aggregate earnings of companies in the S&P 500 were $96 per share last year, a record, according to FactSet senior earnings analyst John Butters. Investors realize that companies cant sustain warp speed indefinitely. Its supposed to be a very weak quarter, says Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ, but Wall Street is not freaking out because they understand why. Does the market care about earnings? Sure, to an extent. More often than not, a companys stock moves in the same direction as its earnings. Investors tend to trade on what they expect to happen in the coming months. By the time a company actually announces its quarterly results, chances are theyve already been baked into the stock price and wont have much of an immediate effect unless theres a big surprise. A companys predictions about the future are what investors really listen to. A lot of what were going to get now, Butters says, is already in the rear-view mirror. Butters also notes the outsized impact of Apples earnings on the overall figure for the S&P 500. Strip out Apple, Butters says, and the prediction for the first quarter falls from minus 0.1 percent to minus 1.6 percent. Besides, one quarter of earnings growth hardly means a company is solid. Earnings can be a deceptive measurement, and will rise even when revenue falls if a company slashes jobs and other expenses. Share buybacks and accounting charges can also inflate profits and mask a companys struggles. You can always juggle earnings, says Stovall. Its a lot harder to fudge sales. Whats the big picture? Despite all the hubbub about The End of Earnings Growth, analysts are expecting only a short-term decline. Earnings growth is expected to return to 7 percent in the second quarter and 5 percent in the third quarter, according to FactSet. Bigger jumps of 16 percent, 14 percent and 13 percent are predicted for the three quarters after that, through the middle of 2013. Analysts also expect pershare earnings in the S&P to rise to more than $105 in 2012, another record, according to Butters.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, APRIL7, 2012 A5 000B321 Heavan Mackay Collier Age 11 has been chosen as a state finalist in the National American Miss Florida Pageant to be held July 21-22 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando 000B2PB Crystal River Mall presents The Kids Summer Activity Expo Are you looking to join a summer camp?

Republican Mitt Romney needs an ailing economy to fully exploit his image as a Mr. Fix-It who can restore the nations financial health, as he turned around the troubled 2002 Winter Olympics. President Barack Obama needs jobcreation momentum to persuade voters that things are moving in the right direction, even if millions of people remain unemployed. Fridays neither-hot-nor-cold jobs report leaves both campaigns unsure of whether they can sell their narratives. Employers added 120,000 jobs last month, about half the December-February pace and well short of the 210,000 economists were expecting. Still, the unemployment rate declined from 8.3 percent in February to 8.2 percent, the lowest since about the time Obama took office. GOP leaders were quick to note that the rate dropped largely because many Americans stopped looking for work and were not counted in the government survey. The U.S. jobs picture was bleaker when Romney began his second presidential bid a year ago, emphasizing his experience in running the Olympic games and reorganizing companies while at Bain Capital. From wire reports Scott signs vaccination, public hospital bills The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Resolving two long-running debates, Gov. Rick Scott on Friday signed bills that will give more vaccination powers to pharmacists and increase oversight of the sales or leases of public hospitals. The pharmacy and hospital bills were two of several health-related measures that Scott signed heading into the holiday weekend. Others included a bill that would allow the use of what is known as a medical loss ratio for managed-care plans in the Medicaid program. Pharmacists, who are allowed to give flu shots, have long sought authority to give other types of vaccinations but have run into opposition from physicians. During this years legislative session, pharmacy and physician groups agreed to a carefully crafted compromise (HB 509) that Scott signed Friday. Under the measure, pharmacists will be able to give pneumonia shots. Also they will be able to give vaccinations for shingles if doctors write prescriptions. The bill also requires pharmacists to take continuingeducation courses administered by a physicians association. Michael Jackson, president and chief-executive officer of the Florida Pharmacy Association, said in a prepared statement Friday that the bill will help increase access to vaccinations. By allowing pharmacists to administer these important vaccines, the new law makes it easier for adults and seniors, in particular to protect themselves against these dangerous and in some cases lifethreatening illnesses, Jackson said. Lawmakers and Scott also approved the publichospital bill (HB 711) after parts of the hospital industry helped negotiate a compromise. Divisions in the industry played a part in killing a similar bill in 2011. Supporters of HB 711 said it is needed because of situations such as a bungled merger of the public Bert Fish Medical Center in Volusia County with the non-profit Adventist Health System. The merger had to be scrapped last year after it was disclosed that the Bert Fish board had met in private to discuss the deal, violating the states openmeetings law. The compromise will lead to the secretary of the Agency for Health Care Administration reviewing potential sales or leases of public hospitals. Also it requires hospital governing boards to start formal evaluations of the potential benefits of selling or leasing their facilities though they are not required to pursue sales or leases. In approving the Medicaid bill, meanwhile, Scott and Republican leaders eased away from their opposition to using a medicalloss ratio in the Medicaid program. Such ratios are controversial in the insurance industry, as they require health plans to spend a minimum amount of the money they receive on patient care. Supporters say the ratios are important to make sure HMOs spend enough money on patients, while critics say the ratios dont guarantee better care and that it is often difficult to differentiate between medical and other types of costs. Lawmakers approved a proposal last year to move to a statewide Medicaid managed-care system but did not include such a ratio. Instead, they wanted to use a system that would require HMOs to share profits above 5 percent with the state. But federal health officials, who are reviewing the proposed statewide managed-care system, have made clear they want a medical-loss ratio. HB 730 would allow AHCA to use a medical-loss ratio if it is required by the federal government. But it also includes a caveat that would allow Medicaid HMOs to at least partially comply with the ratio by contributing money to medical-residency programs or to a state Medicaid fund. Once cute and tiny pets, grown-up alligators now posing big challenge for Missouri town Associated PressST. LOUIS The 50 baby alligators were cute little critters, each roughly the size of a pencil, when a Colorado man sold them out of a trailer in the parking lot of the Kennett Eagles Club in southeast Missouri. Fourteen months later, Kennett authorities are worried about whats become of those animals. Now theyve grown and theyre not cute anymore, Humane Department officer Tina Petix said. Theyre trying to bite people. So Petix is on a gator hunt, hoping to convince any owners that small-town Missouri life is neither good for the reptile nor the people and pets it may encounter. So far, three alligators have been located and removed. One woman was keeping two as pets, often in a backyard next to a home where 3-year-old twins live. The other nearly snapped off its owners hand. Petix has no idea how many gators Ken Henderson sold in January and February 2011, when he set up a makeshift shop and sold exotic creatures out of his trailer. Associated PressSteve Brown, left, president of theSt. Louis Herpetological Society, and Kennett Humane Department officer Tina Petix hold an alligator Thursday in Cape Girardeau, Mo. The alligator is one of around 50 allegedly sold by a man passing through southeast Missouri about 14 months ago.

Now thanks to the spirit of our community, we find ourselves hopeful once again. We would like to say thank you to our friends, family, local churches and charitable individuals and organizations of our community. We are very grateful for the help and the humbling feeling goodness that comes with it. Starting shortly after the fire was a flood of various donations. If we missed anyone please know we are no less grateful, and please take some pride in the fact that it was due to the overwhelming support of the community around you. Thank you Sue, Cajun Jimmy andCitrus County Chronicleand local radio for getting word out and making this possible. We would also like to thank Dan, Patty and friends at Dans Clam Stand, Craig Collins and friends at Color County Nursery, Crystal Chevrolet, Eagle Buick, Sunoco and other local businesses for their help and support with our recent fish fry fundraiser.

We dont want to embarrass anyone else by naming names, but you know who you are: Thank you for helping us sift through the ashes and hope for a better tomorrow. We will do our best to pay it forward for all our years to come.Bryan and Chenoa McCutcheon Crystal RiverFlea market pricesFlea Market Do people really know what those words mean? Not antique store prices, but more yard sale prices. Oh my goodness! I have gone to several in the past few weeks with my company from out of town and was totally shocked at the high prices. I know the economy is bad but people are there to buy, and it was assumed the vendors are there to sell. So sell at reasonable prices! No wonder I never see anyone carrying much out of the flea markets. Come on vendors, be reasonable if you want to charge those prices you can afford to open your own stores.Susan Shaut LecantoSupport loungeI would like to invite all nonsmoking veterans, members, Ladies Auxiliary members, and non-members to come out to the American Legion Post 155 in Crystal River to support the new non-smoking lounge located in the back section of the post.

Please come out and support us and enjoy the new section.Phillip Manley Citrus Springs Voters dont make decisions based on a candidates spouse. But when a man runs for president, his wife plays an important role as validator, as character witness, testifying to the human qualities behind the poll-tested speeches and slickly produced videos. No one knows him better, so no one can speak with more authority. As Rick Santorums wife, Karen, put it during the Wisconsin primary: You always hear the other side of the candidates, and I think its also just really nice when the spouses give a more personal perspective, a window into our lives. Karen probably wont get the chance to talk about her husband much longer; unless Mitt Romney gets creamed by his own campaign bus, Santorum wont be the Republican nominee. But America will be hearing a great deal from Ann Romney this fall. Her husband has tried and failed repeatedly to come across as a warm, approachable person who understands ordinary folks and their problems. Thats why his wife has to make the case for him. Most people dont vote based on a checklist of issues. They want an emotional connection with their candidate. Feelings are as important as facts. And Romneys compassion gap is particularly damaging among female voters. In the latest USA Today/Gallup poll of 12 swing states, President Obama leads Romney by 18 points among women (and only one point among men). Team Romney understands this and is deploying Ann more often and on more platforms, from TV and radio shows to public rallies and campaign videos. She rounds him out, Romney adviser Tom Rath told Politico. You live with a guy for 40 years and youre qualified to speak to what kind of man he is. Adds GOP strategist Alex Castellanos: His link to the base doesnt come from ideology. It comes from family values channeled through Ann. Wives can be a tricky business. Bill Clinton was not particularly successful selling Hillary as co-president, and her stewardship of health-care reform in the White House was a disaster. (Once she stepped out of Bills shadow first in the Senate and then in Obamas Cabinet shes been Americas most-admired woman for the last 10 years, according to Gallup.) Laura Bush (still the sixth mostadmired woman) is a better model for Ann Romney. She highlighted her husbands human side by helping George overcome his penchant for alcohol and then softened his warrior image in the White House by becoming comforter in chief. Michelle Obama is a critical part of her husbands re-election effort. One tipoff is a widely circulated online ad featuring both parents and their two daughters under the slogan, Help the Obamas Stand Up for Working Americans. The message: Were a team, a family, and that helps us understand your family. When Romney tries to talk about personal things, he often screws up. He has trouble identifying with working families because, unlike the Obamas, hes never lived in one. When he told voters he once worried about getting a pink slip he was totally unbelievable, since he had an MBA from Harvard and a father who ran an auto company. Nor has Romney ever battled the kind of personal demons that bedeviled George Bush. Hes too perfect, as one voter put it. His personal life seems totally unblemished by trouble or tragedy. Thats why voters see him as insulated and insensitive. Can you really understand suffering if youve never felt it yourself? But Ann Romney has not been protected from lifes trials. Shes had two major illnesses breast cancer and multiple sclerosis and when her husband talks about her, his feelings start to show through. At a town hall in Wisconsin, a question about his religion prompted Romney to discuss the burdens most people carry, which led to his wifes health: My good wife, I mean, you see her, shes beautiful, shes energetic, articulate, but you know she has MS, and she also had to fight breast cancer. And I watched her as a person with great strength and capacity. You dont always see the things that are happening in peoples lives. Its when she talks about her illness that Ann is most effective as a character witness for her husband. In a campaign video, she discusses the time she was diagnosed with MS: I was frightened; Mitt was frightened. But I needed him desperately. He was so reassuring and so loving. Now, he needs her.

Jimmie T. Smith is pondering legislation that would have school districts relinquish the job of transporting students. He feels the private sector might provide cheaper and better service. School officials cringe at that notion. Rep. Smith, R-Inverness, should value their concerns. After all, they are among his constituents and the closest to the issue. First off, at present theres nothing preventing school districts from contracting with private companies. Requiring privatization, however, seems nothing more than a lobbying interest looking to steer tax dollars their way with no longterm assurance of better service, improved oversight of children or benefits for drivers, who under public oversight arent exactly raking in big bucks. While the terms of contracts could perhaps vary if privatization were legislated, if school systems chose to sell off the buses in their fleet which, new, cost about $100,000 each and the experiment failed, the costs of rebuilding a fleet would be astronomical. There hasnt been a hue and cry from Citrus County for the school district to give up its role in transporting students, so we question why this is of concern to Rep. Smith. Theres value in having drivers as employees of the school system, helping to offer assurances that they are answerable to school officials and parents, and who become familiar with their young passengers. With the blessing of school administrators, Citrus Countys school bus drivers exercise judgment when it comes to whether its in the interest of public safety to transport a child who lives less than two miles from their school. The state only requires districts to pick up those living two or more miles from school. In Citrus County, that could result in youths walking a couple miles down U.S. 41 or Croft Avenue or Pleasant Grove Road or any number of other busy and dangerous roads. Would drivers under a privatized service undergo background checks for criminal history and driving infractions? Last month, Melissa Ross wrote a guest column in Jacksonvilles Florida Times-Unionthat noted dozens of bus drivers in Duval County were found to have criminal records, with some driving on suspended licenses. She also noted an incident in which 100 or more elementary school students were left to stand in the rain while the buses were busy shuttling people to the Daytona 500. Rep. Smith and other proponents should fully evaluate the situation in Duval before further flirting with a law to require privatization. We ask that our lawmakers fully absorb the opinions and concerns of local school officials and weigh those against whether theyre really hearing a public plea for privatization or simply responding to whispers from lobbyists. We suspect the latter. THE ISSUE:Proposed privatization of school buses.OUR OPINION:Value input of local experts.

Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio As Holocaust survivors languished in displacement camps around Europe at the close of World War II, the U.S. Army gave them some of their first tangible connections to their faith since before the war: passages from the Talmud. Now two pieces of that limited printing have ended up in the hands of an Ohio rabbi, who used one in a pre-Passover service on Friday even as historians ponder their rarity. The two tractates, or passages that help make up a collection of religious and civil law known as the Talmud, are dated 1946 and offer guidance on marriage and vows. They were created to help displaced Holocaust survivors whose belongings, including religious materials, were destroyed during the war. Some experts say its unclear how many copies were printed or how many exist today, but they all agree theyre a collectors item that offers a glimpse into a unique printing agreement that U.S. armed forces had following the war. Rabbi Areyah Kaltmann, who runs the Lori Schottenstein Chabad Center in Columbus, snagged the two tractates from a New York City auction house for $600 on March 21. The Australian native said he owns several other tractates published in later years. I like these things because theyre meaningful, the 45-year-old said. The Talmud is a compilation of Jewish oral law and stories about 1,500 years old. Historians and archivists say its also one of the few religious materials the U.S. Army ever authorized for publication. Abby Meyer, who works at New Yorkbased Kestenbaum and Company, which specializes in selling Judaic items and sold the books to Kaltmann, said the auction house has sold only a handful of single tractates in its more than 20 years in business. Lenore Bell, library director at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., said the books are probably the first two tractates of the Talmud to be produced in Germany with the authorization of the U.S. Army after the war. Whats significant is the publication itself and how important it was to provide these texts to help rebuild the religious lives of survivors, she said. And the U.S. Army contributed to that process. The tractates, called Kiddushin and Nedarim, are the only two published in 1946 because they were the most complete copies available at the time. Bonnie Merritt, 95Bonnie Madeline Phillips Merritt passed on April 1, 2012, at her last home of many years, Woodland Terrace, where she was very active as a resident. She had many friends and found a home in such a loving community. Bonnie was born in Boston, Massachusetts on October 17, 1916 as Madeline Elizabeth Wickstrom. Later, she changed her name to Bonnie Phillips. Her maternal grandfather, Lou Phillips, was very influential in her life. She was one of four children: William, Emily and George. Her beloved sister passed at 8 years old of fever, and George died in 1986 of cancer. Bonnie put herself through Lowell State Teachers College, 1934 to 1938. She paid her own way by her professional trumpet performances. Her music teacher, Walter Smith, was world renowned. A music critic described Bonnie as perhaps the best cornetist in the nation. She met the love of her life, Wesley Stearns Merritt, while she was playing trumpet at Forest Acres in Fryeburg, Maine. He was an accomplished piano player, organist and educator. Bonnie and Wes settled in Brockton, Massachusetts then later moving to nearby Newton and Easton, including seven years at Borderland, the Ames estate. Wes taught music at Brockton and Newton High Schools, while Bonnie taught music at an Easton elementary school. And they both taught in the summer at Fessenden Day Camp in Newton, where their daughters could enjoy great camp life. They moved with their four daughters to Montpelier, Vermont, in 1957. Bonnie taught fifth grade there at Union School for many years. She was a Vermont Teacher of the Year in the 1960s. In 1978, Bonnie was awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Lowell in Massachusetts. She was always proud of having been on stage with John Updike, who also received an award at that time. In the late 1980s, she and Wes moved to Florida. They led a ukulele band that toured many nursing homes. She also became an accomplished self-taught artist of oil painting, watercolor and charcoal drawing. She was predeceased by her beloved husband; her daughter, Susan Edith Merritt-Trail; her grandson, Paul Arris; and her son-inlaw, Lee Verne Arris. She was very proud of her grandchildren Paul Lee Arris, Daniel Wesley Arris, Judy Brog and Nuviah Ames Shirazi-Clark. She was also proud of her great-grandchildren Daniel Brog, Jeremy Brog, Zoe Clark and Harper Clark. She is also survived by a loving cousin, in Maine, Ted Nixon and his wife Gail Nixon and his family. She also leaves behind two sonsin-law, Robert Trail and Jeffrey W. Kerrigan and many friends, both in Vermont and Florida. She was a proud member of the PEO, a philanthropic womens organization that gives scholarships to young women. She was a devout Christian Scientist. A large thank you goes out to all her caregivers at Woodland Terrace and to her friends who faithfully visited her regularly. Also, thanks to the Hospice Team who provided additional support in her final days. Contributions in her memory may be sent to Hospice of Citrus County the Nature Coast.

Hay there Associated PressA pair of cows feed Friday in a pasture in East Montpelier, Vt. College votes to delay 2-tiered fees SANTA MONICA, Calif. The board of trustees at Santa Monica College voted Friday to postpone a twotiered fee scale that brought angry campus protests where students were pepper-sprayed. The board decided at an emergency meeting to wait on a plan to deal with budget cuts by offering high-demand core courses at about four times the regular price. On the 6-0 vote, the board followed the recommendation of college President Chui Tsang, who circulated a memo before the meeting urging that the plan be put on hold at least for summer classes to allow more time for community input. His request to the board also hinted at the college funding woes that prompted the fee plan. I must warn that this postponement in no way addresses the state funding crisis and the lack of seats for our students to progress in a timely way, said the resolution obtained by The Associated Press.

Sarajevo marked the 20th anniversary of the start of the Bosnian war Friday. Exhibitions, concerts and performances were held, but the impact of the empty chairs reduced many to tears. Its as if the whole tragedy materialized, became visible, said Asja Rasavac, who covered her face with an umbrella, embarrassed for not being able to control the tears. One cannot even describe the feeling. Its not hatred. Its not anger. Its just endless sadness. Hundreds of the chairs were small, representing the slain children. On some, passers-by left teddy bears, little plastic cars, other toys or candy. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A8SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE After binge, job market takes a breather Associated PressWASHINGTON The U.S. job market took a breather in March after its best hiring stretch since the Great Recession. Employers added 120,000 jobs last month half the December-February pace and well short of the 210,000 economists were expecting. The unemployment rate fell from 8.3 percent in February to 8.2 percent, the lowest since January 2009, but that was largely because many Americans stopped looking for work. Still, few economists expect hiring to fizzle in spring and summer, as it did the past two years. And they blamed seasonal factors for much of Fridays disappointing report from the Labor Department. We dont think this is the start of another spring dip in labor market conditions, said Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist with Capital Economics. The report was also closely watched in political circles. If employers retreat on hiring, consumers could lose confidence in the economy and potentially dim President Barack Obamas re-election hopes. Ashworth and other economists cited the weather for the latest jobs report. A warm January and February allowed companies to hire workers for outdoor jobs a few weeks earlier than usual, effectively stealing jobs from March. It partially explains a 34,000-job drop in retail hiring and a 7,000 drop in construction jobs. Our winter didnt really exist, said Alan Amdahl, who runs his own construction company in Sioux Falls, S.D. Its just incredible. People didnt hibernate. Economists also say the numbers can bounce around from month to month. Consistently creating 200,000 jobs a month is tough. The economy hasnt put together four straight months of 200,000 or more new jobs since early 2000. Economists are still encouraged by the recent hiring trend: The economy has generated an average 212,000 jobs a month from January through March. Associated PressAuto workers at the Ford Stamping Plant stack the inner door panel for the Ford Explorer on Wednesday in Chicago Heights, Ill. The Labor Department said the economy added 120,000 jobs in March, down from more than 200,000 in each of the previous three months. Manufacturers added 37,000 jobs. Februarys unemployment rate lowest in United States since January 2009 Time to flee Associated PressREYHANLI, Turkey After days of relentless shelling and sniper attacks, thousands of Syrian refugees streamed across the border into Turkey with horrific accounts Friday of mass graves, massacres and burned-out homes. The latest reports of escalating violence fueled accusations that President Bashar Assad is rushing to stamp out as much of the yearold uprising as he can before a U.N.-brokered cease-fire next week. The trigger for the new waves of refugees was an offensive in Idlib province, which borders Turkey and has become increasingly rebellious against the Assad regime. Activists reported about 100 dead in the villages of Taftanaz and Killi in recent days. A photograph provided to The Associated Press by a Syrian activist showed at least a dozen corpses wrapped in blankets in what appeared to be a mass grave in Taftanaz. The AP could not verify the authenticity of the photograph, but witnesses also described a mass grave. They destroyed the whole village, a refugee who asked to be identified by only one name, Anas, told the AP on Friday after fleeing Killi. If he has to kill, Bashar would even kill 1 million people. He doesnt care. Hikmet Saban, another Syrian refugee who reached Turkey, described the devastation in Taftanaz, located several miles outside the city of Idlib. Helicopters and tanks are bombarding continuously, he told Turkeys state-run Anadolu agency. Taftanaz has been burnt to the ground for three days. Activists posted video they said showed a helicopter gunship firing a missile at Taftanaz and a mosque hit by shelling. The escalating violence has dimmed hopes that the fighting, which the U.N. says has killed more than 9,000 people, will end anytime soon. The country appears to be spiraling toward civil war a fearsome development that could bring a regional conflagration. A vital geopolitical linchpin, Syria borders five other nations and has close ties to Iran and powerful militant groups, such as Lebanons Hezbollah. Assad last week accepted a cease-fire deadline brokered by international envoy Kofi Annan, which calls for his forces to pull out of towns and cities by Tuesday and for everyone to lay down their arms by 6 a.m. local time Thursday. Western leaders have cast doubt on Assads intentions, suggesting he is playing for time and is not serious about the plan, which aims to pave the way for talks between the regime and the opposition on a political solution. Syria denies that the revolt is a popular uprising at all, saying instead that it is facing a foreign conspiracy by armed gangs and terrorists who want to destroy the country. The revolt began in March 2011 with mostly peaceful protests, but the violent government crackdown has led many to take up weapons. A fighting force called the Free Syrian Army, made up largely of army defectors, is determined to bring down the regime by force of arms. Associated PressA group of Syrians, fleeing violence in their country, walk toward the Turkish border March 15 near Reyhanli, Turkey. Turkey said Thursday it was considering the establishment of a buffer zone along its border with Syria after more than 1,000 Syrians crossed into Turkish territory in the latest influx of refugees escaping attacks by security forces in their homeland. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 23 civilians, nine government soldiers and four opposition fighters were killed Friday. Syrian refugees tell stories of violence, talk of mass graves Malis coup leader to return power, signs accord Associated PressBAMAKO, Mali Under intense pressure from the nations bordering Mali, the junior officer who seized control of the country in a coup last month signed an accord, agreeing late Friday to return the country to constitutional rule. The announcement was made only hours after separatist rebels in the countrys north declared their independence. Capt. Amadou Haya Sanogo emerged from his office inside the military barracks that has served the de facto seat of government for the past 16 days, ever since he and his men stormed the presidential palace, reversing more than two decades of democratic rule. Flanked by the ministers of neighboring nations, he read out the accord, which states that under Article 36 of Malis constitution, the head of the national assembly becomes interim president in the event of a vacancy of power. In the event of the vacancy of the president of the republic for whatever reason, or due to any absolute and definitive impediment, Sanogo said, the functions of the president of the republic will be exercised by the president of the National Assembly. The accord did not say when the head of the assembly will assume the post. Associated PressANNAPOLIS, Md. Maryland routinely grants divorces for couples who married in other states, and divorces for same-sex couples should be no different, lawyers for a lesbian couple told the states highest court Friday. The case involves two women who were married in California and denied a divorce in 2010 by a Maryland judge who said their marriage was not valid in the state. Maryland does not currently allow same-sex weddings, but lawyers for the women told the seven-member court that it would be unprecedented for the state not to recognize gay marriages performed elsewhere. If youre validly married somewhere else, the rule in Maryland is your marriage is going to be respected in Maryland, and thats what were asking the court to do here, said Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights in San Francisco. Judges in Maryland have been inconsistent about granting divorces for gay couples. Lawyers said judges have granted divorces for about half a dozen gay couples, but their clients and at least two other couples were denied. As a result, some couples are waiting for a ruling from Marylands high court before filing for divorce, the lawyers said. The Court of Appeals ultimate decision may have limited effect because same-sex weddings, and by extension, divorces, are set to start in the state in January. Opponents of the law passed this year are seeking to overturn it in a potential voter referendum. The high courts judges asked about that potential referendum and its effect on the current case. Lawyers said even if voters decide not to allow same-sex marriages, state courts should grant divorces for same-sex couples, the lawyers said. The case involves Maryland resident Jessica Port and District of Columbia resident Virginia Anne Cowan. Port, 29, and Cowan, 32, were married in California in 2008 during a window in which gay marriage was legal there. Almost two years later, the couple filed for divorce in Maryland, where they both then lived. Prince Georges County Judge A. Michael Chapdelaine declined to grant it. The court finds that to recognize the alleged marriage would be contrary to the public policy of Maryland, Chapdelaine wrote. Lawyers for Port and Cowan told the Court of Appeals that Chapdelaine was wrong. Md. high court hears gay divorce case

SPORTSSection BSATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inverness-based rowing club succeeding in stateJAMESBLEVINS CorrespondentINVERNESS If you happen upon Wallace Brooks Park in Inverness around 7:30 in the morning any weekend or between 3 to 10 p.m. almost every day of the week, you will see them. You will see the rowers swiftly traversing Lake Henderson before and well after the sun touches the treetops at the start of a new day and at its conclusion when the sun goes back down. Cutting the water so subtly, their slender boats give off the impression of sliding on glass. When the boats really get going, its as if a magic trick were being performed before your very eyes. Its no magic trick: you are seeing a group of incredibly talented student-athletes putting in their training sessions before and after school. The Rowing Organization of Citrus County Students (ROCCS) is a rowing club established for school-age kids of both genders to get involved in the sport of rowing and participate on either a competitive level, which the club encourages, or just be part of a family of rowing enthusiasts, gaining numerous fitness and health benefits. The club is currently at approximately 40 members and looking for many more applicants. When asked about the early morning training sessions, Terry Davison, the clubs coach and trainer and also the owner of Inverness Rowing and Fitness, puts it simply. Winning is not luck. Winning comes from hard work and commitment, Davison said. And thats what we teach throughout the club. I (hope) they take that (lesson) into adult life and not (necessarily have to) row or do anything like that but learn something from the sport. It may be seen as setting the bar very high, Davison continued. But we also say if you aim for the moon and you miss it, you may still land in the stars. So thats what we do. We set a very high standard of commitment and sometimes thats tested in these early morning sessions because its not just about the physical but also mental (strength). This concept strikes close to home for Davison; two of his sons, Ben and Joe Davison, participate in the club with lots of success, winning regattas all over Florida.

Rays down Yankees 7-6 in opener for both Associated PressST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Carlos Pena thrust his arms in the air, rounded first base and headed right into a wild celebration in the middle of the Tropicana Field infield. Pena defied long odds against CC Sabathia and did it again against Mariano Rivera, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays to a thrilling 7-6 season-opening victory over the New York Yankees on Friday. Pena hit an early grand slam off Sabathia, then completed a ninth-inning comeback with an RBI single off Rivera. Pena finished 3 for 5 with five RBIs in his return to the Rays after a year with the Chicago Cubs. All that after a spring in which he hit .107 and struggled so much that manager Joe Maddon initially penciled him into the No. 7 spot in the batting order for the opener. Maddon had a change of heart Friday, shifting the slugger into the sixth spot. Your heart starts racing in that moment and you try to control yourself as much as possible, Pena said. I tried to slow myself down and breathe and take it one pitch at a time, as easy as you can possibly make it. Instead of building the situation up you try to bring it down. Rivera (0-1) had been 60 of 61 in save chances against the Rays. But after Desmond Jennings opened the ninth with a single against baseballs career saves leader, Ben Zobrist tripled home the tying run. The 42-year-old Yankees closer intentionally walked the next two batters to load the bases and struck out Sean Rodriguez. Pena, who was 0 for 11 lifetime against Rivera, won it by driving a 1-2 pitch off the base of the wall in left-center field for More baseball For the Rays-Yankees bo x score, plus the rest of Fridays MLB results, please see Page B3. Associated PressFred Couples celebrates after finishing the second round of the Masters golf tournament on the 18th hole Friday in Augusta, Ga. The 52-year-old Couples is tied with Jason Dufner for the lead after two rounds. Couples retreat 52-year-old golfers great round ties for first at Masters Associated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. Before there was Tiger, Rory, Sergio or Phil, a smooth-swinging guy named Freddie used to make em go crazy at the Masters. He can still make it interesting. Freddie Couples turned back the clock Friday back to 1992 during a seven-birdie second round that coaxed a fist pump from the California-cool 52-yearold and put him in a tie for the lead with Jason Dufner at Augusta National. Can I win? Couples said, repeating the question that so many are asking now. Yeah, I believe I can. Yes. He shot 5-under 67, the same score he posted 20 years ago during the second round of what turned out to be one of the most popular wins in the history of the tournament. Were it not for the gray hair beneath his cap, this might have been confused for a replay of that win instead of the second round in 2012. Standing out there, I said, What the hell, a lot. What do I have to lose here? Couples said. Meantime, Phil Mickelson made six birdies during a round of 4-under 68 to pull to 2 under for the tournament. Tiger Woods had nowhere near as good a day. Struggling with his swing for the second straight round, he opened with two birdies on the first three holes, but gave that all back and more. He shot 3over 75 and was at 3 over for the tournament, closer to the cut line of 5 over than the lead. Last year, he was seven back but came back to briefly grab the lead on Sunday before finishing fourth. One of the neat things about this tournament is the 10-shot rule, Woods said, referring to the rule that brings all players within 10 of the lead back for the weekend. Anyone can win the golf tournament who makes the cut. Guys have won this from five, six down going into the back nine. I just need to be solid, cut that deficit down and get off to a quick start like I did last year on Sunday. Couples got off to a quick start Friday, shooting a 3-under 33 on the front nine to move into contention.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE MAJORLEAGUEBASEBALLSATURDAY, APRIL7, 2012 B3 Rangers, Orioles each open season with victories Associated PressMILWAUKEE David Freese hit a two-run drive for one of four St. Louis homers off Yovani Gallardo, and the Cardinals spoiled the Milwaukee Brewers opener with an 115 victory on Friday. Yadier Molina, Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday also connected for the Cardinals, who are in Milwaukee for a three-game series after opening with a victory over the Marlins in Miami on Wednesday. Gallardo (0-1) lasted only 3 2-3 innings, giving up seven hits and six runs with five walks and three strikeouts. Rangers 3, White Sox 2ARLINGTON, Texas Colby Lewis struck out nine in his first opening day start, Ian Kinsler homered and the two-time defending American League champion Texas Rangers began the season with a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Kinsler, unable to reach a deal on a new long-term contract before his self-imposed deadline of opening day to end negotiations, had a leadoff double in the first and scored on a sacrifice fly by Josh Hamilton. Kinsler hit a solo homer in the third. The loss spoiled the managerial debut of Robin Ventura, who before the game had his first meeting with Nolan Ryan since charging the mound 19 seasons earlier against the Hall of Fame pitcher. Ryan is now president, CEO and partowner of the Rangers.Orioles 4, Twins 2BALTIMORE Jake Arrieta pitched seven scoreless innings, Nick Markakis homered and drove in three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles marked the 20th anniversary of the opening of Camden Yards by defeating the Minnesota Twins 4-2. Making his first opening day start, Arrieta (1-0) allowed two hits, struck out four and walked two in a 97-pitch performance reminiscent of the gem that Rick Sutcliffe tossed against the Cleveland Indians in the inaugural opener at the ballpark. Sutcliffe, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch Friday, christened Camden Yards by pitching a five-hit shutout on April 6, 1992.Diamondbacks 5, Giants 4PHOENIX Chris Young and Paul Goldschmidt hit first-inning home runs off Tim Lincecum and the Arizona Diamondbacks opened defense of their NL West title with a 5-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Ryan Roberts two-run double broke a sixth-inning tie as Arizona defeated Lincecum (0-1) for the fourth time in a row. Ian Kennedy (1-0) allowed three runs on nine hits in 6 2-3 innings to beat the Giants for the fourth straight decision. Pablo Sandovals RBI double with two outs in the ninth pulled the Giants within a run. But J.J. Putz got Buster Posey on a grounder to earn the save. Melky Cabrera hit a two-run homer in for San Francisco.Rockies 5, Astros 3HOUSTON Pinch runner Eric Young scored the go-ahead run on an error in the eighth inning and Troy Tulowitzki homered in the ninth to lift the Colorado Rockies to a 5-3 win over the error-prone Houston Astros. The game was tied 3-3 when Ramon Hernandez singled in the eighth before being replaced by Young. Young stole second base and scored on an error by catcher Jason Castro, one of four miscues by the Astros. Castros throw to shortstop Marwin Gonzalez, who was making his major league debut, was high and it bounced off his glove and into the outfield. Tulowitzkis solo shot off Fernando Abad sailed over the train tracks in left field and out of the park.

The average is $26.92 this year, up 1 cent from last season and the smallest increase in the surveys 21-year history, the Team Marketing Report said Friday. Thats a 1.5 percent increase in 2010 and 1.2 percent last year. The average was $77.36 in the NFL last year, and $57.10 in the NHL and $48.48 in the NBA in their current seasons. Boston has the highest average for a nonpremium ticket at $53.38, followed by the New York Yankees at $51.55. Moving into their new ballpark, the Miami Marlins had the highest rise, a 36.5 percent increase to $26.02. Pittsburghs average increased 15.3 percent to $17.74 and Kansas Citys went up 15.2 percent to $21.84. The Chicago White Sox cut their average 28.7 percent to $29, and the Los Angeles Dodgers slashed theirs 24.1 percent to $23.22 after seeing attendance drop last season under former owner Frank McCourt. 2012 Tampa Bay Rays upcoming scheduleAll Times EDT April 7 N.Y.

Pena hit his slam in the first. Evan Longoria hit a solo homer in the Rays third, and it stayed 6-5 until the ninth. Hes the greatest closer in the history of the game and we all know that, Pena said of Rivera. He has that illusion in his ball. You swing where the ball is at and its not there anymore. He has perplexed hitters throughout his career. Hes the best closer in baseball, and thats for a reason. Riveras rough outing was the latest in a recent series of bad outings by big league closers. Jose Valverde, Chris Perez and Bostons Alfredo Aceves all struggled a day earlier. My fault. I felt good. I dont make excuses, Rivera, whose other blown save against the Rays came in 2005. I just left the ball up, he said. Rivera, beginning his 18th major league season, had converted 27 consecutive opportunities against the Rays. When you see him blow one, its shocking. Its going to happen. It happened. Its baseball, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. He got a couple pitches up. He got one up to Jennings, and he got one up to Zobrist. That kind of led to the inning. Sabathia yielded both of Tampa Bays homers, but later worked out of a couple of tight spots to cling to the lead the defending AL East champions took on newcomer Raul Ibanezs three-run homer in the third. Reliever David Robertson escaped a jam in the eighth inning, striking out Stephen Vogt, Jose Molina and Matt Joyce with runners at the corners, seemingly setting up Rivera to close it out. Fernando Rodney (1-0) struck out one in a perfect ninth to earn the win in his debut for Tampa Bay. The Rays, whove made the playoffs three of the past four years, raised a 2011 AL wild-card banner to the left-field catwalk before the game and Pena brought the sellout crowd of 34,078 to its feet again in the bottom of the first when he sent a 3-2 pitch into the right-field stands for his eighth career grand slam. Tampa Bays career home run leader entered the day 4 for 35 with two homers and 19 strikeouts lifetime against Sabathia, who walked Rodriguez intentionally just the fourth intentional pass of the young shortstops career to get to Pena. It was the right move. If I make the pitches, then we have nothing to talk about, Sabathia said. The Yankees battled back with two runs in the second and four more in the fourth, when Ibanezs put them ahead 6-4. The offseason free agent acquisition was 0 for 12 against Rays starter James Shields, including a grounder to second base that drove in New Yorks first run, before getting his first hit for his new team. With the 30-year-old Shields making the fourth opening day start of his career, the Rays used a starting pitcher 30 or older for the first time since May 24, 2007, at home against Seattle. Shields made a start in Chicago the following game, beginning what evolved into a major league record stretch of 764 consecutive games started by pitchers under 30. Shields allowed six runs and nine hits, walked three and struck out three in five innings. The right-hander, who set Rays records for complete games (11) and shutouts (4) while becoming a first-time All-Star in 2011, also hit a batter and unleashed a wild pitch that allowed a run to score in the second. Sabathia, a 19-game winner a year ago, wasnt sharp, either. The 31year-old lefty struck out Pena twice to help himself through jams in the third and fifth innings but wound up throwing 104 pitches in six innings. RAYSContinued from Page B1 Ticket prices flat

Many coaches are expressing concern sun block should be in every locker room next to the rehydration drinks. One rowing coach benches any crew member that appears at practice with a sun burn. One coach noted that the use of sunscreen should be compulsory. The trouble is in some sports, by the time you get through application of all the compulsory mandates, there is no time to practice. Common sense by parents and athletes is in order. Younger athletes, who are most at risk, do not realize that the sun burn they get today will have its effect in the form of skin cancer later in life. Not to mention wrinkles and damaged skin. The immediate risk of not wearing sun block and clothing protection is not apparent. These sunburns result in more than one million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer diagnosed yearly in the United States. The most serious type of skin cancer, melanoma, will account for about 59,600 cases of skin cancer and about 7,800 deaths due to skin cancer each year. A recent study of NCAA soccer players and crosscountry runners at four colleges noted that 85 percent used no sunscreen during the previous seven practice days. There is no question the NCAA has medical guidelines for several sports but to date, the use of sunscreen and SPF clothing is not there yet. In our culture, being tan is cool and is perceived as being healthy. A tan is the bodys last attempt to protect against ultraviolet (UV) light damage. UV rays cause cancer changes or mutations in the skins cell. Being tan as the social preference was not always the case. In earlier times, being pale was associated with social status whereas being tan or sunburned was associated with the outdoor working class. My, how times have changed. Now, you can be tan and socially acceptable and get skin cancer at the same time. Aside from sunscreen and SPF protective clothing, the best time to work out, train or practice outdoors is not between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV light is at its maximum. Choosing to practice before 11 a.m. or after 4 p.m. is helpful. Being in altitude alpine skiing, snowboarding or cross-country skiing, the suns UV is not only magnified by reflection from the snow but has not been filtered by the atmosphere. Being on a high-altitude ski slope is the same as being on a beach in Florida mid-day. There are hundreds of stories of athletes from swimmers having trained outdoors with melanoma of the eye to PGA golfers who have had skin cancer. The story itself is not complex or difficult to understand. Apply sunscreen at the beginning of an event and reapply ever y few hours or when the athlete starts to sweat or get wet. Since May is skin cancer awareness month and it is only April, now is the chance to jump on it and start putting on sun screen, wear a hat, don t play, practice or work out in the middle of the day. Remember Easter egg hunting is an outdoor sport, put sun block on the kids. Have a great and happy Easter.Ron Joseph, M.D., a hand and shoulder orthopedic specialist, can be reached at rbjhand@cox.net or 352-212-5359. JOSEPHContinued from Page B1 cup on March 17. Ben, a Citrus High School student, is unbeaten in five events in single and double rowing this season so far and is in the final stages of selection for the U.S. Junior National team. If selected, he would train for three weeks in New Jersey before heading to Canada to compete against some of the best teams in the world. Both of Davisons sons are on the fast track towards collegiate and national team berths and may one day see the Olympics. Its not just the Davison brothers who are making a name for themselves around Florida but ROCCS itself has been slowly making an impression in the blossoming sport of rowing at regattas as far away as Orlando, Miami and Sarasota. We need to raise the profile of rowing, Terry Davison said, make people realize that it is a very competitive sport and you can achieve some really good results statewide. One of Terry Davisons many goals for the club is to expand its membership and see more kids involved in a sport that he loves. The best way he feels the club can achieve this starts with greater community awareness. We have the facilities and some fantastic lakes (in Inverness), Terry Davison said. (It would be great) to attract some of the colleges down here for the winter (to see our rowers) but we have to put Inverness on the rowing map. The best way to do that is through competition and more recruitment and more support from the wider community. Known affectionately as the duct tape club at regattas statewide, due to the clubs ability to throw together the best collection of boats they can get their hands on to compete, ROCCS has pulled off several upset victories in competitions this season. Placing rowing crews in the top three (if not outright winning most competitions they enter), ROCCS is beating much better-funded clubs from more populated areas. We always are well-welcomed at the regattas, ROCCS club secretary Angela Howard said. Theyll announce its the rowing club that never quits because were so much smaller than the others. They respect us (because) were there every time. The club has grown significantly from its early years, seeing itself on the cusp of true prominence amongst rowing circles. Terry Davison wishes to see ROCCS become more closely associated with Inverness, making the city a known capital of fine rowers and hopefully hosting a regatta of its own in the future. We have made great strides forward this year in an effort to be more competitive in all areas of the sport including equipment, fitness and technical skill in order to match the bigger clubs, Davison said. In April, we will attend the State Sculling Championships in Sarasota with five boats that will all do very well, if not win, putting ROCCS and the city of Inverness on the rowing radar. The club was founded by Dave Brown in 2003 upon meeting a fellow rower while teaching at Lecanto High School. The two teachers mutually agreed to start up a rowing club for high school students, giving kids a chance to try something different than the typically offered varsity sports offered by high schools. Rowing teams are broken into middle school groups (novice) and high school groups (more advanced). Being a middle school student does not preclude a member from rowing in the high school group; if the member showed a proclivity for hard work, they could work their way up to the more advanced group. An obvious prejudice about the sport is that it is only available to Ivy League schools and the super-rich, which Howard is hoping to dispel. I want people to understand they we are trying to make it affordable (to everyone), Howard said. I dont want a kid to feel, I cant do that because we cant afford it. Were out here almost seven days a week (at Wallace Brown Park), said Lisa Grotjahn, whose 15-year-old son Matthew, an eighth grader at Lecanto Middle school, is a member. There (are) a lot of elderly people who use this park to walk and specifically come to watch the kids launch the boats. Terry Davison and his fellow ROCCS members are looking to grow larger and more prominent within the local community; to hopefully establish a new tradition of fine Citrus County rowers from here on out towards a promising future. If interested in the club, please visit the ROCCS website at www.crewroccs.com for more information. ROCCSContinued from Page B1 opened with a 66 and became the oldest player to hold the outright lead after the first round at Augusta. Last year, he shot 68 on Friday to push his way into the top 10. This time, he heads into the weekend with a chance to become the oldest major winner. Hes six years older than Jack Nicklaus was when he won his sixth Masters on that unforgettable Sunday in 1986. Twenty players in the field werent even born when Couples played his first Masters back in 1983. Still, hes hardly the only big name near the top. Sergio Garcia shot a 4under 68 to finish one shot back, tied with Rory McIlroy, who shot 69, and Bubba Watson, who shot 71. I know Im playing well, said McIlroy, who overcame last years final-round collapse at the Masters and won the U.S. Open two months later. The recent results show that. I just wanted to come here and play, put myself in position to win another tournament, another major. Also in the tie at 4 under were 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and Lee Westwood. Westwood spent most of the day in the lead, but three-putted on the 18th green for a double-bogey to close his day at 1-over 73 and 4 under for the tournament. The double at the last (hole) was a disappointing way to finish, Westwood said. But if you get out of position slightly on this course, it can punish you. Couples, a winner on the senior tour two weeks ago, often ambles around these grounds, twirling a golf club, looking as if hes playing a leisurely weekend round instead of grinding through one of golfs toughest tests. On this day, his 106th competitive round at the course, all the scenes looked familiar: Freddie bending at the waist to stretch, reaching his hand into the back of his waistband to rub his aching back, squinting into the sunlight, wincing at the occasional twinge of pain. What would it take? he said. A lot more birdies, a lot more made putts. Maybe a painkiller or two. He teed off into a fairway bunker on No. 3, but spun the approach back to 5 feet and jammed the putt home for birdie No. 1. He was pin high and 4 feet away on No. 4, and suddenly, Couples was doing more than playing ceremonial golf something he has always desperately wanted to avoid. Sports BRIEFS Baxter, Panthers blank CentralPowered by 11 strikeouts during a complete-game shutout by senior pitcher Sheldon Baxter, the Lecanto baseball team scored a 5-0 victory at Central High School in Brooksville on Friday night. Baxter allowed just one walk and four hits to earn the win. Offensively, senior catcher Gary Levengood went 2 for 3 with a triple, run and an RBI while Levi OSteen (1 for 1, run), Scott Stearns (double, RBI) and Nate Hines (1 for 3, RBI) also contributed.

Associated Press Miami Heat guard Norris Cole, right, Memphis Grizzlies center Marreese Speights and forward Shane Battier scramble for a loose ball during the first half Friday in Miami. Arkansas coach on paid leave Associated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Moments after their motorcycle accident, Bobby Petrino and a female employee told a passer-by not to call 911, then got a ride back to Fayetteville where the Arkansas football coach was met by a state trooper who provides his personal security during the season. New details of the immediate aftermath of Petrinos crash were in a 911 call released Friday by the state police. The passer-by, Larry Hendren, describes coming upon the accident scene Sunday evening just after Petrino and Jessica Dorrell were getting up out of the ditch. He said Petrino was walking, but it looked like his face was bleeding quite a lot. The rider and the passenger of the motorcycle declined us to call 911, Hendren told a dispatcher. They got into a vehicle and headed toward the hospital. Petrino was taken to a Fayetteville intersection by another passer-by. There, Dorrell left in her own car while Petrino was met by Capt. Lance King, his personal security guard during the season. King took Petrino to a hospital, where he was treated for broken ribs and a cracked neck vertebra. State police said Friday they planned to question the trooper, looking for any information Captain King may have learned about the crash during conversations with Petrino. While the inquiries have no direct correlation to the investigation of the motor vehicle crash, the questions are legitimate and worthy of answers, state police spokesman Bill Sadler said. King has been asked to detail his involvement with coach Petrino and other individuals whove been identified within the crash investigation. The developments came as Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long considered the future of the football coach, whose salary averages more than $3.5 million. Long appears to have everything he needs to fire Petrino, but the question now is whether he will actually get rid of the coach, who failed to mention having Dorrell with him during the accident and acknowledged having a previous inappropriate relationship. Petrino was not cited by state police, and was described by troopers as cooperative after the accident on a rural road 20 miles outside Fayetteville. What has him in trouble is his attempt to keep anyone from finding out he was riding with Dorrell, a 25year-old former Arkansas volleyball player whom he hired just last week. A clause in Petrinos contract gives Long the right to suspend or fire the 51-year-old coach for conduct that negatively or adversely affects the reputation of the (universitys) athletics programs in any way. That language gives Long plenty of leeway to punish Petrino, who is on indefinite paid leave after reviving Arkansas football program over four seasons and, until now, steering clear of off-field blemishes. That (contract) is very favorable to the university, said Matt Mitten, director of the National Sports Law Institute at Marquette. It gives them a pretty broad range of discretion in determining what negatively affected the universitys athletic program or what they think is conduct inconsistent with the head coach. The accident and attempted cover-up has become the latest scandal to hit major college athletics following shocking child sex abuse allegations against assistant coaches at Penn State and Syracuse last fall. The Penn State case resulted in the firing of revered head football coach Joe Paterno, while head Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim kept his job. The Razorbacks have become a national contender under Petrino, but next season is an afterthought at least for now after the stunning admission by the married father of four. Long only learned Dorrell was on the motorcycle shortly before state police released the accident report on Thursday. Petrino initially said he was riding alone after a day off with his wife at a lake. Petrino declined further comment on Friday through his agent, Russ Campbell. At this point, it is in the universitys hands, Campbell wrote in an email. Long has not offered a timeline for his review, though he did promise to move expeditiously. Petrino didnt want 911 call after accident Associated PressArkansas football coach Bobby Petrino has been put on paid leave. Athletic director Jeff Long announced the decision late Thursday, capping a stunning day in which it was revealed that Petrino had a 25-year-old female employee with him during a weekend motorcycle ride that ended in a crash. Coyotes bite Blues Associated PressST. LOUIS Mike Smith made 31 saves in another stingy start, helping the Phoenix Coyotes take the Pacific Division lead with a 4-1 victory over the suddenly beatable St. Louis Blues on Friday night. Patrik Berglunds rebound goal in the first period ended Smiths shutout streak at 234:25 and tied it at 1, but Smith was perfect the rest of the way. The Coyotes won their fourth in a row and extended the Blues seasonworst winless streak to four games in St. Louis home finale. Keith Yandle, Radim Vrbata, Shane Doan and Mikkel Boedker scored for Phoenix, and Antoine Vermette had two assists. The Coyotes, whove won the last four by a combined 14-1, can win the first division title in franchise history with a victory in the regular-season finale Saturday night at Minnesota. The Coyotes have a onepoint lead over Los Angeles and San Jose. The Kings and Sharks will play Saturday night in San Jose, with one team guaranteed to earn two points. Brian Elliott, whose scoreless streak ended at 241:33 in a shootout loss to Detroit on Wednesday, had 28 saves for St. Louis. The Blues were the first team to clinch a playoff spot and could still win the Western Conference with a win Saturday at Dallas along with a Vancouver loss at home against Edmonton, but are 3-4-4 in their last 11. The Blues finished a franchise-best 30-6-5 at home, but with a pair of blowout losses in the last three, also falling 52 to lowly Columbus last Saturday. U.S., France knotted Teams tied at 1-1 in Davis Cup quarterfinals Associated PressROQUEBRUNE, France John Isner defeated Gilles Simon 6-3, 62, 7-5 Friday, pulling the United States even with France after opening singles in the Davis Cup quarterfinals. The Americans needed a strong performance from Isner after JoWilfried Tsonga beat 19-year-old Ryan Harrison 7-5, 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 to give France the lead. Simon was called up to replace injured Gael Monfils this week. He has never beaten Isner and could not cope with the Americans big serve. Simon also struggled with his own serve on the outdoor clay at Monte Carlo Country Club. I took to the court very confident, Isner said. I played very well. Simple as that. Saturdays doubles in the bestof-five series pits Bob and Mike Bryan against Frenchmen Julien Benneteau and Michael Llodra. Wed love to be up 2-0, but 1-1 seems just about right and tomorrow will be a great doubles, U.S. captain Jim Courier said. John did what he is supposed to do, which is to be emphatic and dominant. The Bryans, the worlds topranked doubles team, are unbeaten in Davis Cup since losing to France in 2008, when Llodra played with Arnaud Clement. Well be in a great position if we win, France coach Guy Forget said. If we lose, it will be difficult. Like France, the U.S. is not at full strength. Harrison was playing his first meaningful Davis Cup match. He replaced ninth-ranked Mardy Fish, who pulled out this week because of fatigue. In the other quarterfinals, host Czech Republic and Serbia were 11; Spain was up 2-0 on visiting Austria; and host Argentina was tied 1-1 with Croatia. The semifinals are in September. Isner had nine aces broke Simons serve four times. Simon, who dropped to 0-3 against Isner, failed to convert any of his five break-point chances. I could have made more first serves, Isner said. But my forehand was on and I was going for it. I wasnt holding back and that was the game plan. The 11th-ranked Isner took control when a double-break point put him ahead 4-0 in the second set. The third set was more competitive, but Simon failed to take his chances. Still, Simon kept chipping away. When Isner missed an easy volley at the net, Simon got his chance to pull back a set with Isner on his second serve. But the American kept his cool, and his forehand winner down the line got him out of danger. Earlier, the sixth-ranked Tsonga found it tough at times against Harrison. The Americans aggressive play forced Tsonga to hurry shots as he tried to shorten rallies. I hope I play better in my next game (against Isner on Sunday), Tsonga said. I had to battle and it worked out quite well for me. Despite losing that third set, I still tried to play my own game. Tsonga broke serve in the 12th game to take a laborious opening set in 54 minutes. He then began to find his range as Harrisons temper frayed. His major weakness is that he is very, very nervy, Tsonga said. I knew that if I held on longer than him, it would be to my advantage. Harrison smashed his racket into the ground following his double-fault that gave Tsonga a 3-1 lead in the second set. I never double-fault that much, which is funny, Harrison said. The sun was against me on that side, and so was the wind.No all-Willilams matchup after Stosur winCHARLESTON, S.C. Reigning U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur put the latest matchup in the Williams sisters sibling rivalry on hold by rallying past Venus Williams at the Family Circle Cup. The second-seeded Stosur won five of the last six games of the match for a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 victory in the quarterfinals on a chilly, windy Friday at the seasons first clay-court event. Stosur now has a chance at knocking out both Williams sisters on consecutive days when she meets Serena in Saturdays semifinals. While Stosur had never beaten Venus Williams before, shes had success against Serena. Stosur beat her to win the U.S. Open title last September and won their only match on clay at the 2010 French Open quarters. For sure, clays not my favorite surface, said Stosur, the 2010 Family Circle champion. Its always tough playing Serena no matter where. Serena Williams advanced when opponent Sabine Lisicki twisted her left ankle early in the opening set and had to withdraw after five games. The buzz for a Williams sisters showdown had grown all week as the two Americans moved through the draw. Both came into Friday without losing a set and appeared ready to settle some family business at the Family Circle Tennis Center. This was Venus Williams first claycourt tournament since 2010 and her second event since a bout with the autoimmune disease Sjogrens Syndrome kept her out of the game since last summers U.S. Open. Associated PressU.S. team player John Isner returns the ball to Frances Gilles Simon during their Davis Cup quarterfinal match in Monaco on Friday. Isner defeated Simon to leave the U.S. tied at 1-1 against France.

Actress arrested on DUI suspicion LOS ANGELES Authorities said actress Amanda Bynes has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after she grazed a sheriffs patrol car. The 26year-old actress was arrested around 3 a.m. Friday in West Hollywood. The Los Angeles County sheriffs department said Bynes attempted to pass a patrol car making a right turn when she hit it. Deputies who arrested her suspect she was drunk at the time. Bynes is being held on $5,000 bail. Her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, did not immediately return a call and an email from The Associated Press. The actress appeared in the 2010 film Easy A and the Nickelodeon series What I Like About You. Deputies said there was paint damage to both cars, but no one was injured. Potential jurors asked about starCHICAGO Potential jurors in the Chicago trial of the man charged in the 2008 slayings of Jennifer Hudsons family members are being asked what they know about the singer and actress. A questionnaire released Friday to The Associated Press and other media includes several questions designed to gauge jurors familiarity with Hudson from her appearances on television and motion pictures to her live performances and things she has written. The questionnaire asks specifically if prospective jurors ever have watched American Idol, the TV show that brought her to fame, and the film Dreamgirls, for which she won an Academy Award. William Balfour is charged in the slaying of Hudsons mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew in the familys Chicago home.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Matt Lauer is sticking with NBCs Today, ending speculation that the top-rated show might have to face ABCs rising Good Morning America without him. Lauer has signed a long-term contract to remain as co-host of the No. 1 morning show, a long-anticipated deal that NBC announced Thursday night but Lauer made public on Today Friday morning. This is my family, he said on the air as the Today crew and co-anchors burst into applause. Truth be told, he joked, I was developing an idea for a new show, where viewers could tune in every morning and see someone they know lose a little more of his hair every single day right in front of their eyes. But then I thought, I could just stay here and do that. Although Today is on a historic winning streak in the ratings, Good Morning America has been gaining ground. Lauers decision provides important stability for Today and puts to rest suggestions that he might reunite with his former co-host Katie Couric on the syndicated show shes launching this fall. Lauer said last May that he had discussed joining with Couric on a new venture. But he predicted then that he would be staying at Today for a long time. Given how strong the Today show has been, I dont think the outcome was ever in doubt, said industry analyst Larry Gerbrandt of Los Angeles-based Media Valuation Partners. Lauer has been a fixture with the show since 1994 and began his run as co-anchor inJanuary 1997. He has created a popular Today catchphrase with his globe-hopping Where in the world is Matt Lauer? segments. Today has remained No. 1 in the weekly ratings since 1995. Over at ABC, archrival Good Morning America gave Lauer an attaboy on its Friday telecast. Matt, you set the bar so high every day, said co-host George Stephanopoulos in voicing his congratulations. Beside him sat Couric, who, now at ABC, has been subbing as co-host on GMA all week. She passed along her own greetings to her old partner-in-crime, and announced that GMA had sent Lauer a bucket of golf balls as a gift. Take all the time off to perfect your golf game, Stephanopoulos proposed. For broadcast networks, morning represents one of the most important parts of the day. The shows are hugely profitable at a time of declining TV viewership, and none has been more of a cash cow than Today. A recent report said Lauer could end up with a $25 million deal, but NBC President Steve Capus dismissed the speculation as complete silliness, The New York Times said. NBC declined to provide further details Thursday on the contract. The morning scene drew increased attention this week as the NBC and ABC programs featured dueling celebrity co-hosts: Today had Sarah Palin for a day, while Couric spent the week filling in at GMA. Flagged in advance, Lauers announcement Friday was likely to also serve as a ratings stunt against his one-time colleague. Palin, the former Alaska governor, helped Today maintain its winning streak against GMA on Tuesday, but Wednesday proved a cautionary tale for NBC. With Couric on board, Good Morning America was able to claim a oneday victory in viewership over Today. About 5.24 million viewers watched GMA, while 5.15 million viewers tuned into Today, according to the Nielsen Co.Lauer sticks with Today Birthday Your leadership qualities could become much stronger in the year ahead than theyve ever been. There are some strong indications that youll create and oversee a daring, innovative enterprise. Aries (March 21-April 19) Although you can accomplish a lot for yourself right now, it might not be a good day to mend fences with a co-worker. The other party needs much more time to be able to heal. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Instead of doing things that could add to your resources and turn a profit, you might do anything but. Dont let your emotions override your common sense. Gemini (May 21-June 20) The only way to get others to follow you is to lead by example. If you attempt to be overly assertive or dictatorial, all youll do is create more problems for yourself. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If youre fearful of being taken advantage of by others, theres a chance you could conduct yourself in ways that exploit other people first. Dont do it. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Its generally unwise to do business with friends, but this could be one of those days when youll do so anyway. If thats what you feel you have to do, be extremely careful. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Take care not to do anything that makes you look good at the expense of another. Even if you get away with it for the moment, it will cost you dearly down the line. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Although you might do some nice things for others based on a personal desire to get something from them, nothing will change and the world will treat you the same as it always did. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if you usually do everything for yourself, you might have to depend on others to open doors for you at this time. Unfortunately, their priorities and yours could differ. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) When it comes to partnership arrangements, youre going to have to be firm and decisive in order to succeed at getting what you want. If you arent, you wont. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Dont look to others to quell your emotional distress, because it isnt likely they would be up to that kind of assignment. Only time will heal what ails you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Avoid at all costs arguing with friends over silly, minor social issues. An innocent discussion could quickly turn nasty if someone says the wrong thing. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If you hope to finalize a matter of critical importance, it is going to take strong willpower on your part. Coasting along wont work this time.

Spotlight onPEOPLE FloridaLOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning n umbers, Page B4 .ENTERTAINMENT Page B6SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 Associated PressLOS ANGELES Theres a hint of mature romance or at least hot sex involving older folks in the latest sequel to American Pie. American Reunion brings back the comedy ensemble from the 1999 grossout hit and includes a comical hookup between Eugene Levy, who plays Jason Biggs squarer-thansquare dad, and Jennifer Coolidge, who plays Seann William Scotts boy-seducing mom. It all starts as Biggs Jim, home for a high school reunion, tries to get his widower dad out of the house for a change. Levy ends up at a party at the home of Scott Stifler, whose mom wound up in the sack with her sons classmate Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) in the original movie. Stiflers mom needs to grow and progress and actually hook up with something more promising, and I love that I would hook up with Jims dad, Coolidge said in an interview alongside Levy. For Jims dad, who spent much of the first three movies awkwardly trying to help his son through embarrassing sexual issues, his evening with Stiflers mom is like nothing hes ever experienced before in his straight-laced life. He realizes he kind of screwed up somewhere along the line with his kid and didnt explain things properly or whatever,Levy said, so he tries to help his son out in as helpful a way as he possibly can. Levy and Coolidges scene together is a reunion for the two, who have collaborated on the mock documentary comedies Best in Show, A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration. They co-starred in the ensemble spoofs, which Levy also co-wrote. If the American Pie franchise continues with more movies, the two could even end up together, Levy and Coolidge speculated. I would think hes not the kind of guy who would probably stay single, Levy said. If hes not with Stiflers mom, then hes out trying to reform some hooker some place, I dont know. Hes had an experience with Stiflers mom that I dont think hes ever quite had in his life, and how that affects him down the line, I dont know, outside of just making him generally happier.

He came back to life About six or so years ago, I met a man who said he saw a dead man raised to life. The dead mans name was Bob and the man who told me about it said God had told him to go to Bobs house to pray. He didnt know Bob had died until he got there, but since God had told him to pray, he figured hed better do it. So, he asked Bobs wife if he could see him. The man had seen death before, and Bob was dead. Even so, the man started praying because God had told him so. All of a sudden, Bob took a breath, or as the man described it, He sucked all the air out of the room. After that, Bob wasnt dead anymore. I dont remember what happened next except the man told Bob he smelled See GRACE/ Page C6 Symbolic Passover foods Food plays an important part in the ritual life of a Jew. The very act of eating itself is considered holy and is sanctified by blessings before and after meals. Even the choice of comestibles has certain rules and regulations. For instance, shellfish and pork are not allowed, and red meat and poultry have to be ritually slaughtered in such a way as to cause as little pain and suffering to the animal as possible. This is called kashering, and the food that traditional Jews eat has to be certified that it meets certain Jewish standards. Food thus allowed is called kosher. Among the more liberal branches, even the business practices and raising conditions of the food preparations are taken into consideration, so that free range chickens are preferred over those inhumanely raised in confined areas. All Jewish holidays have special foods associated with them, but Passover stands in the foreground when it comes to symbolic choices. The frontispiece ritual for the holiday is the ritual meal called the seder, and the See FOODS/ Page C6 Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Judi SiegalJUDIS JOURNAL See NOTES/ Page C2 JAYREEVES Associated Press PENSACOLAFor years starting in the mid-1990s, millions from around the globe visited a humble church in Floridas Panhandle for lively Pentecostal revival services where believers flocked on stage to be healed by God for cancer, addiction and broken hearts. At its height, the Brownsville Revival drew as many as 5,500 people a night for six years estimates put the total between 2.5 million and 4.5 million people. Donations poured in as the Brownsville Assembly of God added staff, built a massive new sanctuary and opened a school for preachers. In the decade after being the home of the largest Pentecostal outpouring in U.S. history, the church has been on the edge of financial ruin. It racked up $11.5 million in debt, to be paid after the out-of-town throngs and its former pastor moved on. The red ink is mostly unknown outside the congregation. Every Monday I find out what the (Sunday) offering was and we decide what we can pay this week, said the Rev. Evon Horton, Brownsvilles current pastor. The good news is last week we paid our mortgage. The bad news is it drained our bank accounts. The paid staff is down to six from around 50, and the newsletter is printed monthly instead of weekly. About 800 to 1,000 worshippers total attend two Sunday services, but most pews go empty in the 2,200-seat sanctuary. Another 2,600-seat sanctuary built just for the revival is used for a gym, community classes and storage. The church has trimmed millions off its debt by selling property and slashing expenses, and its raising money to pay off the remaining $6.5 million. Horton said its a wonder a blessing from God, really that the church has survived so long. Its the hardest thing Ive ever dealt with in 30 years of ministry, he said. Almost three years after the revival trickled down to its last nightly service in 2001, the longtime former pastor, the Rev. John Kilpatrick, moved on. He now runs a bustling church and traveling revival ministry based across the state line in Daphne, Ala. Kilpatrick said Brownsville was never the wealthy church many assumed during the revival years, so loans were the only way to From revival to red ink Church that hosted historic Pentecostal outpouring now struggles with debt JOHN DAVID MERCER /Associated PressChurchgoers at the Brownsville Assembly raise their hands in praise as senior pastor the Rev. Evon Horton preaches to his congregation during service in Pensacola, Fla. The church that was home to the largest Pentecostal outpouring in U.S. history is on the edge of financial ruin. ReligionNOTES The revival that drew some 5,500 people nightly at its height saddled the Brownsville Assembly congregation with an $11.5 million debt that members were left to pay off after both the out-of-town throngs and the former Rev. John Kilpatrick moved on. The red ink is mostly unknown outside the congregation. See REVIVAL/ Page C6

pay for growth. He said the church fell deeper into debt after he departed and membership dropped. I resigned (from) the church, and I never would have left if I knew the struggles it was going to have, he said. A lot has changed since the revivals beginning on Fathers Day 1995. Ken Griffin, who first came to the church 36 years ago as a surfer and is now a board member, still marvels at what happened that day. Kilpatrick brought in visiting evangelist Steve Hill and something stirred. He just asked a simple question, like If anyone really wants to get refreshed and get closer to God, then come up to the altar, Griffin said. As he started praying for people, all kinds of things started happening. ... People were falling out and people were just getting ministered to, and the next thing we know its 4 oclock in the afternoon. Word spread of people being miraculously healed and converted, and revival services were soon held four and five nights a week. People waited in long lines to get inside the church, located in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Pensacola, a Gulf Coast city known for training naval aviators. The church began buying up nearby houses and razing them for parking, Horton said. It took in millions in donations and revenue from items like music CDs, but the church used mortgages to expand rather than cash. Youd think that money was just flowing into the place, Kilpatrick said. But it wasnt.The Pensacola NewsJournalraised questions at the time about the revivals finances and claims of miraculous healings, but the crowds kept coming. Horton said hes still unsure what happened to all the money, but hes concentrating on the future. What good would it do me? he asked. Kilpatrick said he doesnt recall the financial details, but hes saddened by his old churchs struggles. Many times when a pastor leaves churches begin to get into a struggle, he said. Thats what happened at Brownsville. I just hate for them that it happened. Kilpatrick went on to found the Church of His Presence in Daphne, about 50 miles west of Pensacola. In 2010, he began the Bay Revival with another traveling evangelist, Nathan Morris. Records from the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability show John Kilpatrick Ministries is a subsidiary of Partners in Revival Ministries, which he founded in 1996 during the Brownsville Revival. The organization listed net assets of $1.4 million in 2010, but it ran a $40,000 deficit that year, with revenues of $941,588 and expenses of $981,588. Kilpatrick is trying to grow his current ministry. In a February talk posted on his churchs website, Kilpatrick asked for extra money to pay a $9,000 deficit from a recent revival in Orlando; to purchase a second TV production truck for $250,000; and to help the church pay its bills. He also lamented the cost of maintaining two homes near the Alabama coast, which tax records show are worth about $1 million total. Speaking directly into the camera, Kilpatrick said: You know were not a money people; Ive never been a money grubber. Never asked for money. I dont even like taking offerings. Ill ask for pastors to ask for offerings when we go out. I dont like to take em. I dont even like to talk about em. This is killing me for me to have to talk about this right now, but I have to do it. Cause weve gotta get this message out to the world. The problems at Brownsville look familiar to Howard Snyder, a professor at Tyndale Seminary in Toronto who has studied revivals. When the dust settles after a spirited revival, churches can be left with divisions and no long-term plan. Revivals may produce rapid growth, he wrote in an email. But new converts or adherents need teaching, discipling, spiritual formation over time, and often the churchs leadership fails to understand this and provide for it. So very easily, what goes up comes back down. Back at Brownsville, remaining parishioners are embracing a new calling to pay off their debt and minister to the impoverished community around them. This revival touched the world but not this community, Horton said. In a fundraising effort that Horton said came to him from God in a dream, the church is trying to raise about $7 million by getting people to give $1,000 each for debt relief. Donors names will be engraved in a walk of faith around the old sanctuary. We can be debt-free if just 7,000 of the millions of people who attended the revival help out, Horton said. Robert Helms Jr., a church volunteer and retired Navy aviator, said the church is trying to move ahead without bitterness. He directs a community center located in the old overflow sanctuary, where pews now hold old lamps destined for Habitat for Humanity homes. They offer day care, GED classes, youth basketball games, womens self-defense and computer training for the neighborhood. We need to stop worrying about the debt, and weve kind of put that on the back burner, Helms said. Weve said we want to reach this community, and the Lord has graciously given us all these people. Now, the question (from God) is What are you going to do with them? C6SATURDAY, APRIL7, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLERELIGION CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED HE IS RISEN!

Paul Drive Inverness, FL 000B1RE bad and needed a shave. Then the man shaved his face all nice and tidy, slapped on some Brut aftershave and told Bobs wife to cancel the funeral arrangements. To this day I dont know if that really happened. The man who told me is a Pentecostal preacher, and stuff like miracle healings and resurrections tend to happen when theyre involved. They tend to believe that a dead man can get up and walk. Im not Pentecostal, but I do believe one instance where that happened before. On Sunday the world will celebrate it. Let me say right here that I love Easter I love it more than Christmas. Theres nothing about the holiday that makes me sad or nostalgic, no unmet expectations, no guilt over traditions that Ive neglected to pass on to my children. Just Cadbury Creme Eggs, jelly beans and the celebration of a once-dead man who got up and walked out of a sealed tomb and changed the world forever. Heres something that I think about often: The Bible says that the same power that raised Jesus from death is the same power that is at work for us who believe (Ephesians 1:19). Feel powerless? The same power that gave life to a dead man three days worth of dead is the same power that God uses on our behalf, in us, through us, for us, because of us. That power is what enables a person to have faith to begin with, to believe the most outlandish story that God stepped away from his throne in heaven to become a man by being born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, then took all the sins of humanity upon himself past, present and future died a brutal death in their place, came back to life three days later, then 40 days after that returned to heaven where he had always lived. It takes incredible power to believe such a story. Thats resurrection power. Its resurrection power that changes a human heart, enables liars to stop lying, haters to stop hating. Resurrection power breaks the power of sin, takes away the craving for revenge, the lust for attention and approval and the need for control. Resurrection power has kept me from destroying people with my tongue. Many times Ive wanted to annihilate someone and I open my mouth to curse and out pops kindness instead. Thats power that isnt natural. Its supernatural and its a gift. Resurrection power turns sadness into celebration, makes the impossible possible. Hearts of stone turn soft and pliable. Insecure and fearful hearts find security and peace. Resurrection power turns God-haters and the God-indifferent into God-worshippers and truth lovers. It changes the self-centered to other-focused. Not all at once, but changed nonetheless. Resurrection power removes the dreadful fear of death. I used to be terrified of death (and almost as terrified of living). But somehow, for reasons God only knows, I was given the power and the grace to believe that a dead man came back to life. Because I believe, death has lost its sting for me. God has promised that one day after Im long dead and worm food, I, too, will get up and walk into eternity. I know. It sounds utterly ridiculous, but not to those who have experienced resurrection power. For us, its the gospel. Its Easters good news.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

The seder foods are supposed to provide the participants in the seder with the feelings and emotions one would feel if one were a slave. To begin with, some people serve chopped hardboiled eggs in salt water. Eggs, especially at this Passover and Easter time of year, represent birth and the cycle of life. They also are a symbol of mourning (often served at Jewish funerals). The salt water stands for the tears shed while in slavery. On the seder table is a plate with six symbolic foods: roasted egg, shank bone, greens, horseradish, orange and a mixture called haroset. The egg has already been explained, but an additional explanation for the egg is that it stands for the special Passover offering made in the ancient Temple at this time of year. The shank bone represents the roasted lamb eaten with bitter herbs (horseradish) on the eve of redemption from slavery in Egypt. The lambs blood was used to smear over the lintels of the Israelite homes so that God would pass over their homes and not smite their first-born sons. The lamb was later eaten as a meal. The bitter herbs signify the bitterness of slavery. The greens symbolize hope and the promise of spring and are dipped in salt water as a remembrance of the Reed Sea, which split to allow the Israelites to escape to freedom. The haroset, in Eastern European tradition, consists of apples, cinnamon, nuts and wine, which are ground together to represent the mortar that was used in the brick laying for the construction of Pharaohs storehouses, which the Israelites were compelled to build. The orange is a modern addition. Because Judaism is an evolving civilization, the orange has come to stand for the disenfranchised people in our own day, namely women and those of different sexual orientations. Perhaps the most famous food eaten on Passover is the matzah. Often called the Bread of Affliction, this flat bread, actually a cracker, was used as a staple food for the Israelites journey because they had no time for their bread to rise. Matzah is eaten for the entire duration of the holiday (eight days), as no leaven food is allowed. Matzah and its various forms, meal, crushed or bite-sized, is used throughout the holiday in various recipes. What is served at the seder meal is also steeped in tradition, but is not necessarily ritually mandated. For instance, the Eastern European tradition that most American Jews descend from will begin the meal with gefilte fish. This is cold-water carp and/or whitefish chopped with matzah meal, seasonings and egg and boiled in a broth. Quite delicious if you have grown up with it, but I always tease Jews by choice when they refuse to eat it! Others will begin with chopped chicken liver, sort of like pate loaded with cholesterol, but very tasty! My favorite dish is chicken soup. All nationalities make this, but I happen to think that the Jewish version made by a Jewish mother is the best! (To be fair, I also believe that an Italian nona makes the best lasagna!) Into this golden broth are put dumplings called matzah balls. These are made with eggs, oil, seasonings and matzah meal. (Or you can use a mix!) Light and fluffy, they are a special treat! The meat served is usually turkey, chicken or beef. Some people have now opted for vegetarian choices. Vegetables are spring choices such as asparagus, green beans or carrots. Certain beans (like limas or kidney) or peas or corn are not allowed due to the fact that they are considered leavened foods. A favorite dessert is sponge cake made with special matzah meal cake flour and as many as eight to twelve eggs to give it leavening and lightness. Chocolate macaroons, commercially made, are also popular. As we approach the Passover and Easter season, may we eat at the table of love and understanding, drink from the cups of peace and salvation and relish the freedom we have as Americans.

The county commission wanted to acknowledge the recent improvements made at the beach, including the new bathroom renovations and the sand renourishment project. The new restroom facility was completed in September 2011. An arsonist destroyed the bathrooms in October 2010. From left are: Rafael Del Valle, Parks and Recreation manager; Commissioner Dennis Damato; Commissioner Rebecca Bays; Chairman Winn Webb; Commissioner Joe Meek; and M ike Howell, (incoming) Parks and Recreation manager. The Fort Island Gulf Beach sand renourishment project has been in place since 1983. This last renourishment project was completed March 24. Ribbon cutting at Fort Island Gulf Beach Special to the ChronicleApril 7, 1962, was a wonderful day for Albert and Marilyn (Crum) Jordan they were married that day at the First Baptist Church in Bushnell, Sumter County, Fla., where Marilyns pioneer family has lived since 1842. They began their married life in Inverness, where Albert was born and raised. He worked for Bob and Norine Gilstrap at Home Furniture Store, and Marilyn began her career with the City of Inverness. After 38 fulfilling years with the city, Marilyn retired in 2003 as city clerk and Albert retired from self employment in his TV antenna business. They have enjoyed retirement, but reflect on the wonderful memories they have of raising their two boys, Bruce and Keith. Bruce lives in Bushnell on the Crum family homestead where Marilyn was raised, and Keith, his wife, Pam, and daughters Taylor and Paige, live in Inverness. Albert and Marilyn have enjoyed some travel, but will tell you that spending time with their granddaughters, following their sports, and various school functions, is the most fulfilling use of their time. They are active in their church, the First Baptist of Inverness, where Marilyn serves as Trustee. Albert serves on the Citrus County Mosquito Control Board, 4-H Foundation Board and Citrus County Fair Board. Marilyn serves on the Advisory Council for Citrus Memorial Hospital Foundation and continues to be involved in other community activities. They will celebrate their 50th anniversary on Easter Sunday at their home with their extended families, and have a week planned this summer with their children, daughter-in-law and granddaughters.

C8SATURDAY, APRIL7, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Napoleon Bonaparte, surely the most famous resident of the Mediterranean isle of Elba, said, Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. At the bridge table, it is an art to give your opponent a chance to make a mistake. In todays deal, how should the play go in four hearts after West leads the club jack? It is a matter of personal preference what you open with that South hand. Some would begin with one heart, arguing that if they bid four hearts, they might miss a slam. As against that, opening one heart might allow West into the auction with a onespade overcall, and perhaps the opponents can make four spades or have a cheap sacrifice. And since a slam is mathematically unlikely, socking it to the opponents with four hearts would be the choice of most experts. Since the opening lead marks East with the club ace, declarer is in danger only if East takes the first trick and shifts to a high diamond, with West holding that ace. Then South could lose one club and three diamonds. To try to reduce that risk, declarer should call for dummys low club at trick one. Some Easts would automatically make the mistake of playing low. Then South would win at least one overtrick, since West cannot profitably shift to diamonds. But East should notice the strong aroma of rodent wafting across the table. What is declarer doing? He must want to keep East off the lead. So East should overtake with his club ace and switch to the diamond queen. In a class I ran earlier this year, every South covered with dummys club queen, but most Easts won and returned a club!

(N) (Live) 30 RockScrubs Dear Annie: My 64-year-old brother has refused to talk to my 86-year-old father for nearly 10 years. When our mother died, Dad married a nice Christian widow. He then sold the family home. He and his new wife built a new one in another town. My brother still thinks Dad should have split the sale profit with his children since half the house belonged to our mother. As far as I am concerned, Dad was not obligated to do this. By law, my mothers assets passed to her surviving spouse, which means Dad owned the house outright. He lives solely on his Social Security benefits and needed the money. My brother has had multiple sclerosis for 30 years. He and his family struggled financially, and my parents gave them a lot of money over the years to keep them afloat. For my brother to want more is shocking. My other siblings and I dont feel entitled to any of Dads money. My brothers children are grown. When his daughter married four years ago, he didnt invite Dad to the wedding. She is expecting a child, and Dad learned about it through other family members. He is deeply hurt by this. Dads health is starting to deteriorate. He has tried to make contact with my brother several times, to no avail. My siblings are ready to give up. Our brother spends no holidays with us and doesnt get in touch for any reason. I suggested Dad leave him alone. There is nothing he can do at this point. Do you agree? If not, what do you suggest? Puzzled in Indiana Dear Indiana: How sad that your brother is willing to abandon his family over money. After 10 years, its doubtful he will rethink his sense of entitlement. We suggest you keep in touch on a Christmas-card level, sending birthday wishes once a year, keeping him updated about Dads health. He may not respond, but it requires only minimal effort and leaves the door open should he ever change his mind. Dear Annie: Is it OK to tell a woman that her husband had a three-year affair? I have ample proof because the Other Woman happens to be a dear friend of mine. The husband is the most selfish person I have ever met. If it were me, I would absolutely want to know. However, I understand that not all women are like me. The Other Woman would rather not speak up, although she would tell the truth if asked. However, I believe that ship has sailed. The wife once had suspicions, but her manipulative husband managed to convince her otherwise. So, should I tell her or not? Unsure in Miami Dear Unsure: Some women can live with the illusion that their husbands are faithful even if they suspect otherwise, but having the truth shoved in their faces makes them angry not with the husband, but with the messenger. You obviously dont like this man and would enjoy seeing him suffer, but the news would mostly hurt his wife. If there is a chance she has contracted an STD from her philandering husband, she should be told. Otherwise, please stay out of it. Dear Annie: My heart goes out to Lonely in New York, the 70years-young lady who would be happy kissing, hugging, cuddling and having a sex life. I am in a similar situation with my wife. You should put the two of us together, thereby solving two problems at the same time, without either of us having to leave our marriages. How about it? Lonely in Kelowna DearLonely: Sorry, but we dont run a matchmaking service. And there are inherent risks in connecting anonymous readers with each other. Please find a better solution to your problem than cheating on your wife.
