PAGE A4 TODAY & Thursdaymorning CR City Council decides to shelve letter A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Officials have decided to shelve the letter of intent to sue regarding the controversial new federal rules pertaining to Kings Bay. After teetering on the cusp of shooting off a letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in reaction to the March 15 rules announcement, the City Council decided to heed new information revealed by a city attorney. Michael J. Brannigan of the Hogan Law Firm and one of the citys attorneys, told the panel Monday they had a much bigger window to respond than had been anticipated to the federal rules. City officials initially thought they had to respond within 30 days of the rules with a 60day notice of intent. Brannigan, however, told them after further research, attorneys found there was a six-year statute of limitation, but that they still had to give a 60-day notice of intent. Maybe we should defer and think about this, Councilwoman Maureen McNiff said. McNiff said as much as it rankles her that they couldnt move immediately to seek a reversal of the ruling, she thinks it is perhaps better to do further research about their options in the future. Councilmember Ron Kitchen reiterated his belief that, barring an ironclad assurance that the citys chance of success against USFWS is good, he would not like to vote to spend taxpayer money on any kind of litigation. Mayor Jim Farley also repeated his opposition to the rules, but added he was a realist. We may get back to this and we may not. I dont know, Farley told dozens who turned out in support and opposition to the rules. On March 15, USFWS announced they would designate Kings Bay a manatee refuge or protection zone. The service also Maureen McNiff in favor of holding off on litigation, doing more research. Ron Kitchen opposes spending taxpayer money on lawsuit. Plan to sue federal agency over new Kings Bay rules on hold See LETTER / Page A2 Ruffled feathers MATTHEW BECK/ Chronicle This angry bird displays behavior that is a bit different from the popular computer game. The Eastern bluebird above doesnt recognize the reflection as its own and attacks the rival reflection in this truck mirror repeatedly to scare it away. Many birds, especially during the nesting season, display aggressive behavior when protecting territory. Birds do not have the ability to reason or comprehend the concept of reflection, according to the Massachusetts Audubon Societys website. It recommends solutions to preventing damage to a vehicle when a bird displays this type of behavior. Since cars have many reflective surfaces, including side mirrors, bumpers, windows and chrome grills, motorists can discourage the birds behavior by following a few simple steps. Placing opaque, plastic grocery bags over side mirrors, and covering other reflective surfaces with opaque coverings will help. The website also recommends moving the vehicle to a different location. Board: Keep schools in county housing plan M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Citrus County hasnt seen a major housing development in years, but school district officials still want a seat the planning table when the next one comes along. Board members on Tuesday declined a request from the Citrus County Builders Association to remove the concurrency requirement from an interlocal agreement the district has with the county and cities for school planning. Concurrency requires that infrastructure, such as roads, sewers and, if necessary, schools, be in place or planned before a significant development can occur. Through concurrency, the county could require a developer to pay for road construction or set aside land for schools. Gaston Hall, representing the CCBA, said district would still have input by keeping its non-voting member on the planning and development review board, being informed of all new development applications and receive impact fee revenue from development. We dont see any downside to it, he said. Board members, however, saw plenty of downside. They said that, although housing Associated PressWASHINGTON From obscure former senator driving a pickup truck across Iowa, Rick Santorum made a surprising he calls it miraculous leap to become the most formidable threat to Mitt Romneys march to the Republican nomination. His shoestring campaign, which ended Tuesday, was a constant reminder of Romneys trouble connecting with the partys conservative core. Santorums presence in the race pushed to the fore polarizing social issues, such as abortion, access to birth control, and gays in the military, that many in the party preferred not to delve into as the GOP prepared to court independent voters in the general election campaign against President Barack Obama. Although he accused the media of unfairly focusing on that part of his broader campaign, Santorum was unapologetic about taking on such issues. We did focus a lot, yes, on the families and on the dignity of human life and on the moral enterprise that is America, he said Tuesday in Gettysburg, Pa., as he announced his decision to suspend his campaign. He added: We were winning in a very different way because we were touching hearts. We were raising issues that, well, frankly, a lot of people didnt want to have raised. As it became obvious Santorum could not triumph in the primaries and caucuses, he began talking of an unorthodox strategy of stealing the nomination away from a weakened Romney at a divided Republican National Convention. Santorum argued that the delegates would embrace him as the true conservative in the race, even though most are being sent to the convention by voters who chose Romney. Many Republicans bent on showing unity against Obama considered such a strategy disastrous and began calling for the party to unify around Romney as the presumptive nominee. While Santorum avoided mentioning Romney on Tuesday, he pledged to stay in the fight to defeat Obama, which presumably means embracing the partys nominee at some point. In a recent interview, Santorum even said he was open to the possibility of becoming Romneys running mate. He seems an unlikely choice for Romney, given that just last month he was calling the former Massachusetts governor the worst Republican in the country to challenge Obama. Santorum pulls out of race See GOP / Page A2 SCHOOL BOARD VOTE The school board on Tuesday unanimously approved a referendum on the November ballot to keep a .25-mill for operation and capital projects. The tax, which is now levied but expires this year, equals about $25 for the average homeowner. See TAX / Page A2 Nuclear court fight over steep rate hike heats up The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE With legislative leaders rejecting possible changes, a fight is building in the Florida Supreme Court about a law that allows utilities to pass along hundreds of millions of dollars in costs to customers for nuclear-power projects. Four lawmakers this week filed a brief in support of an effort by the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy to nix the law, which is controversial in part because customers are getting billed for projects that might never be built. But court records show that Florida Power & Light and Progress Energy Florida the two utilities planning nuclear projects have hired former Supreme Court justices to represent them in fighting the case. Progress will be represented by former Chief Justice Stephen Grimes, while FPL will be represented by former Justice Raoul Cantero, according to filings last month. Reps. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda, D-Tallahassee, and Mark Pafford, D-West Palm Beach, and Sens. Mike Fasano, RNew Port Richey, and Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, filed the brief this week challenging the constitutionality of the 2006 nuclear-cost law. Rehwinkel Vasilinda and Fasano have been outspoken critics of the law and filed bills this year to try to repeal it, but the bills were not heard in legislative committees. The brief argues that the law unconstitutionally gives too much power to the Florida Public Service Commission to decide whether to approve the nuclear costs. The process has become little more than a pro forma session allowing the PSC to agree to the utilities requests for more funds, the brief says. The process amounts to issuing a blank check to (Progress and FPL) allowing them to remain in a perpetual state of preconstruction. Legislative leaders have Mike Fasano opposes utility rate hike.

The blaze at 360 Croft Ave., also destroyed a pickup truck and horse trailer. According to the sheriffs office, fire rescue units from the Kensington Fire Station responded to the scene of the fire at 2:47 a.m. and found a 50 by 60 livestock barn, a horse trailer and a truck fully involved. According to Battalion Chief Ralph Franklin, firefighters went into defensive attack mode to tackle the fire which was described as being in an advanced stage. Franklin reports additional units from Inverness, Rock Crusher, Floral City, Beverly Hills and Citrus Springs stations arrived to assist with the fire and provide water. Damage is estimated at $100,000.

Face weight announced rules of conduct for waterborne activities, including a reduction of boat speeds in the area called the sport zone from 35 mph to 25 mph. The sport zone will be open for use during daylight hours between June 1 and Aug. 15. Slow or idle speed is defined as speed that allows steerage for a boater. City officials have been adamant in their opposition to the rules since they were first proposed last June. Officials also vowed legal action if the rules were ever implemented. However, after the rules were announced, officials began to grapple with the reality of that vow, especially after city counsel told them a suit against USFWS is going to be expensive and difficult to win. Attorney Brannigan repeated the same thing Monday, adding that the venue of litigation will have to be through the arbitration process which is a difficult standard. Officials of USFWS said their service took human safety seriously and drafted a common-sense approach to reducing the risk of collisions between boats and manatees. Officials also noted it compromised on the final rules after listening to peoples concerns. They pointed to leaving a sport zone with a 25 mph speed zone as prime example of concessions about concerns. The proposed rule had sought to make all of Kings Bay slow or idle speed. In other matters Monday: The City Council heard from Captains Charlie Simmons and Mike Richie, the Citrus County Sheriffs Offices West-side and special operations commanders respectively. Capt. Richie, who overseas the agencys marine unit, said his office is only charged with enforcing state and local laws. He said unless the new Kings Bay rules become codified and get absorbed into state and local laws, his agency cannot enforce federal rules. City officials have repeatedly wondered how USFWS will enforce its rules with only two enforcement officers assigned to this entire region. On advice of counsel, the City Council decided to research a resolution supporting Save Crystal River Inc.s bid to have the states (FWC) revisit its cooperative agreement with USFWS. Save Crystal River is a citizens group opposed to what they view as a federal takeover of the bay at the expense of sovereign state rights. Mac Williams, who spoke for the group, told the panel, their group seeks to get FWC to tweak its charter with federal authorities and include language that gives state and federal agencies equal footing in making rules and implementing them. The council on first reading OKd a series of changes to the city charter.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline. com. LETTER Continued from Page A1 Santorum likes to compare himself to President Ronald Reagan, a fellow conservative who happens to have lost his own first bid for the partys nomination before winning in a landslide four years later. The comparison suggests Santorum might expect better chances for himself in 2016, should Obama win re-election. No matter what, Santorum has made himself a national name and gained influence over his partys agenda. His withdrawal came after he had fallen hopelessly behind Romney in the race for GOP delegates. And he risked an embarrassing loss in his home state of Pennsylvania if he stuck around for its April 24 primary. Polls indicated his once strong lead slipping away in Pennsylvania, which ousted Santorum from the Senate in a rout in 2006. Many voters there still remember him unfavorably. Santorum said he made the decision to leave the race with his family over the weekend as his daughter Bella, who suffers from a rare and serious genetic condition, was hospitalized. One Pennsylvania supporter, Chad Collie, said Santorums withdrawal left him speechless. Collie, owner of a plaster and drywall business, had brought his wife and two children, ages 3 and 5, to what he expected to be a Gettysburg campaign event for the truly genuine conservative he planned to support in the states GOP primary. Would he be willing to vote for Romney instead? Well see, said Collie, who views Romney as about the same as Obama. Im not opposed to a third party. He seemed to think working mothers would do better to quit their jobs and homeschool their children, as his wife, Karen, did. He called Obama a snob for wanting all Americans to have the opportunity to go to college. And he said fellow Roman Catholic John F. Kennedys famous 1960 speech about the separation of church and state made him want to throw up. Republicans questioned whether Santorum could appeal to party moderates and independents and female voters if he were the partys nominee. GOP Continued from Page A1 Associated Press Republican presidential candidate, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum turns to his wife Karen, left, after announcing he is suspending his candidacy effective Tuesday in Gettysburg, Pa. development is stagnant today, removing concurrency could place the district in position to provide classrooms for a new community without a developers assistance. We cant predict the future, board member Pat Deutschman said. All we can do is protect the future. District planning director Chuck Dixon said Citrus hasnt seen a housing development large enough to trigger a school concurrency issue. It only comes to play when youre creating a new subdivision, Dixon said. From a practical standpoint, its not an issue. Dixon added, however, that keeping school concurrency in place protects the school district if a large housing development comes to the county for approval. Board member Bill Murray made a motion to approve the builders associations request to remove the concurrency requirement. The motion had no support and died. Dixon noted the concurrency issue is relevant because the state dismantled its oversight of local comprehensive plans. Dixon said he wouldnt be surprised to see the state revisit the issue and adopt a standardized approach to growth management. He suggested the district revisit the issue in a year.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicle online.com. TAXContinued from Page A1 Chuck Dixon school district planning director. stood behind the law, arguing that utilities need to be able to collect money to offset at least parts of the upfront costs of the multibillion-dollar projects. During a Fasanoprompted discussion in February, Senate Communications, Energy and Public Utilities Chairman Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, said customers likely would wind up paying more if the utilities waited to recoup costs until after the plants start operating. If we believe in diversifying electricity in this state, there has to be options, Gardiner said at the time. Progress plans to build two nuclear reactors in Levy County, while FPL has moved forward with a similar project in MiamiDade County. Neither site would start producing electricity for at least another decade and are not guaranteed to ever be built. RATESContinued from Page A1

N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff Writer HOMOSASSA ob Griffin likes eagles. A lot. Theyre majestic; theyre beautiful, he said. They have a look about them, their face and the way they fly. Theres nothing like it. About 22 years ago, someone gave him an eagle carved out of wood and he started collecting eagles of all kinds made from wood, lead crystal and glass. One is made from volcanic rock from Mt. Etna in Italy. His favorite, made from silk and ceramic, sits on a pedestal in his living room. Two years ago he began the process of what he calls the ultimate addition to his collection a tattoo mural that covers his entire back. Just last week he completed it 47 hours of sessions, lasting three to six and a half hours, at a total cost of $2,200. He said its well worth the pain and the price he loves eagles that much. About 10 years ago I started thinking about it, he said. I didnt know how much it would hurt, so five years ago I did a family crest on my arm. He said for the most part the pain of tattooing his back was not terrible, except for the last session that colored in the blue areas. On a pain scale from one to 10, that was a nine and a half, he said. Its not a usual tattoo. This is a portrait, done freehand. Griffin, 68, said when he started collecting eagles he also began studying them. He used to go to Eustis, where there are a lot of eagles around the canals, and he would sit and fish and watch the eagles fly. You could see five or six or seven nests out there, he said. I also like to go out to the end of the Crystal River where theres an eagles nest that I enjoy watching. Inside his Homosassa home, the walls are covered with framed eagle art. An eagle-themed wall calendar hangs by the front door. An eagle pocket knife rests on a shelf in a display cabinet. And then there are the hummingbirds. Those are my wifes, Griffin explained. Weve only been married two years and she likes hummingbirds. Although the tattoo is the ultimate eagle, its not the last for this eagle enthusiast. A large tree stump sits in his front yard with an eagle inside of it, waiting to be carved out. Thats my next project, he said. Itll take me about four months to carve.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy @chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927.

From staff reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterINVERNESS A frisson of excitement swept across the commission chamber Tuesday when the public learned Sonic would return to Crystal River. Im here to bring you good news, said Donna Alexander, marketing director for Sonic/Bell Grande Group, speaking during the public comment session at a meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Im with Sonic drive-in restaurants. I want to let you know that we are reopening our Crystal River location. At this point, county residents in the commission chamber responded with applause and cheers. The really good news is that we are going to be looking to fill between 60 and 75 jobs in Citrus County, Alexander continued. The fast food restaurant billed as Americas Drive-In, which sometimes features carhops on rollerskates, closed its doors in November 2010, and has been sorely missed for its range of meals, snacks, treats and breakfasts. It was among a number of franchises and other small businesses impacted by the recession. Alexander told the Chronicle that her Florida-based company had taken over the franchises of several Sonic restaurants that had been closed. She said her companys goal was to rehab the properties to bring them back up to Sonic standards. We just reopened in Mulberry. That location was closed for six years, Alexander said. We had 1,000 people wanting to work there. It was crazy. New equipment has been delivered to the Sonic site at 310 S.E. U.S. 19. The restaurant will be repainted. A Florida-based landscaper will give it green touches. The business will be green in other ways, too. Were committed to participating in all city and county recycling programs, Alexander said. According to Alexander, the company was looking to give back to the community in other ways, as well as provide some jobs. Lots of the things that we did in Mulberry, for example, is we gave a $998 grant to the local schools for books that they needed, Alexander said. Were sponsoring the Mulberry High School football team this fall with a platinum sponsorship. We also sponsor currently one of the T-ball teams. They wear their little Sonic jerseys. Theyre the cutest things. Alexander said her company expected to be as active in Crystal River. She said the sponsorships she described in Mulberry amounted to a little less than $4,000. Thats not a ton of money, Alexander said. But a little money goes a long way in some of these schools. Were committed to academic work, as well as athletics. The company would look for a team to sponsor and a school to hook up with, Alexander said. Applications for jobs will be accepted at the Sonic site from noon on Saturday, April 21. The grand reopening has been set for June 2, but the company expects to have what is called a soft opening sometime before that date. The next Sonic the company plans to reopen will be in Spring Hill. The BOCC approved the termination of its agreement with the Homosassa Civic Club regarding its use of the Homosassa Fire Station at 10950 Yulee Drive, and it declared the property eligible for use by a nonprofit agency. The agency would be chosen at a future meeting. The lease agreement has a 90-day notice of termination clause, making the effective date of termination July 16.

County offering homebuyers classes Program aimed at first-time purchasers Associated PressSANFORD The Trayvon Martin case took a bizarre turn Tuesday when George Zimmermans attorneys said they were dropping the neighborhood watch captain as a client, complaining that they have lost all contact with him and that he called the prosecutor and talked to a TV host after they told him not to speak to anyone. The lawyers portrayed Zimmerman as erratic and his emotional state as shaky, and they expressed fear for his mental and physical health under the pressure that has been building in the month since he shot and killed Martin, an unarmed black teenager. As of the last couple days he has not returned phone calls, text messages or emails, attorney Craig Sonner said at a news conference outside the courthouse. The split came as a special prosecutor neared a decision on whether to charge Zimmerman with a crime in the Feb. 26 shooting. Sonner and colleague Hal Uhrig said they had not spoken with Zimmerman since Sunday. Since then, they said, they had learned that he spoke to special prosecutor Angela Coreys office and to Fox TV host Sean Hannity without consulting them, in an attempt to give his side of the shooting. They said Corey refused to talk to Zimmerman without his attorneys consent and Hannity wouldnt tell them what was discussed. Zimmerman also set up his own website even as the lawyers were creating one for him at his request. Zimmerman said on his website that he wants to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries. The site allows visitors to give Zimmerman money for living expenses and legal bills. Sonner and Uhrig said that they still believe in Zimmermans innocence and that they would probably represent him again if he contacted them and requested it. They said Zimmerman is in the U.S., but wouldnt say where because they fear for his safety. They said Zimmerman has been under extreme pressure and is basically alone, having gone underground because of the furor. This has been a terribly corrosive process. George Zimmerman, in our opinion, and from information made available to us, is not doing well emotionally, Uhrig said. Twist in Martin case Zimmermans lawyers drop him as client

A 5-year-old boy found dozens of bags of heroin inside a jacket he had taken to school and showed them to his kindergarten classmates, the school superintendent said Tuesday. Bridgeport Superintendent Paul Vallas said he believes the boy took his stepfathers jacket to school on Monday without knowing the drugs were inside it. Children bring to school what they find at home, he said. Police have told the Connecticut Postthe boy took 50 packets of heroin out when it came time for a show-andtell presentation, but Vallas said the boy only waved the heroin around at his cubicle. Police did not respond to messages seeking comment Tuesday. The boys stepfather, 35year-old Santos Roman, went to the school and recovered the jacket, but police had already seized the drugs, officials said. He was arrested when he returned to the school after apparently discovering the heroin was missing, Vallas said. Roman was arrested on risk of injury to a minor and drug charges. He appeared Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court and was ordered held on $100,000 bail. He wasnt available to comment from jail, and there was no phone number listed for his home address. The Department of Children and Families placed the boy in the custody of his grandmother, even though his mother went to the school to take him home, Vallas said. Vallas praised the reactions of the teacher who initially noticed the drugs, worth about $500 on the street, and of others involved in the response. I think everybody operated like clockwork, he said. Boy, 5, brings heroin to school Wireless providers to disable stolen phones Associated PressWASHINGTON Major wireless service companies have agreed to disable cellphones after they are reported stolen under a strategy intended to deter the theft and resale of wireless devices. The system announced Tuesday relies on a centralized database that will enable providers to recognize when a phone has been reported as stolen and prevent it from being used again. Were sending a message to consumers that weve got your back and a message to criminals that were cracking down, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski said in announcing the new strategy with several big-city police chiefs and a wireless industry representative. Major U.S. cities have been reporting increases in smartphone thefts as criminals steal devices to resell sometimes overseas as part of sophisticated blackmarket operations. Officials say that cellphones are now taken in 38 percent of robberies in Washington, and more than 40 percent of robberies in New York City involve phones. Many of the thefts are violent, resulting in either serious injury or sometimes death, police say. D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said her department had devoted considerable resources in recent months to the problem. That included a weeks-long investigation that was announced last month and that resulted in hundreds of recovered cellphones and multiple arrests. But Lanier said thats just not enough, not in a crime as complex as this one is. Major cellphone carriers covering roughly 90 percent of U.S. subscribers are participating, said Chris Guttman-McCabe of CTIAThe Wireless Association, an organization representing the wireless communications industry. Participating carriers include AT&T Inc., T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint Nextel Corp. and Nex-Tech. More are likely to join as implementation continues, he said. We moved very quickly and we tried to set a really aggressive time frame. Different carriers have different resources, he said. Sprint said in a statement that it has already taken several steps to deal with the problem, including restricting further voice, text and data use on a phone when a customer reports it stolen. Filings pan do-over Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Democrats and groups that backed the Florida Constitutions new anti-gerrymandering standards took aim at lawmakers revised Senate redistricting map in filings Tuesday with the state Supreme Court. Preserving minority voting rights is one of the Fair Districts standards voters approved in 2010. The Florida Democratic Party and a coalition of three Fair Districts groups filed separate alternative maps. The coalition is made up of the League of Women Voters of Florida, the National Council of La Raza and Florida Common Cause. The Florida State Conference of NAACP Branches also backed Fair Districts but submitted a separate legal argument.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Lawyers for Florida serial killer David Gore asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday to block his planned execution later this week. The 58-year-old convict is scheduled to receive a lethal injection on Thursday at Florida State Prison in Starke for the 1983 rapemurder of 17-year-old Lynn Elliot in Indian River County. Gore also is serving life terms for killing five other girls or women, who were raped and dismembered. His attorneys asked for a stay and filed an appeal based on a recent Supreme Court ruling that dealt with ineffective legal assistance. The nations highest court ruled last month in an Arizona case that the federal courts must hear a convicts claim of receiving ineffective legal assistance or none at all for appeals alleging the inmates trial lawyers also had been ineffective. Procedural issues cannot be used to block those appeals, the federal justices ruled in the 7-2 opinion. That decision is limited to states including Florida that do not let defendants claim ineffective counsel until after their initial appeals are resolved. Gore contends his death sentence should be lifted because a prior appellate lawyer failed to locate a key witness for an appeal that the Florida Supreme Court ultimately denied in 2007. In that appeal, Gore had alleged his trial lawyers were negligent during the cases penalty phase. The Florida Supreme Court rejected a similar appeal Monday. The unanimous opinion said that while the federal justices decision contains expansive language, they specifically declined to address the issue of whether theres a constitutional right to effective assistance of counsel in collateral appeals. Gores lawyers are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to declare that right in his case. The state justices also wrote it appears the Arizona decision was directed toward federal rather than state court proceedings and is intended to address issues that arise in that context. Gores appeal also contends his constitutional rights were violated by the governors absolute discretion to carry out death sentences based upon subjective whims or outside influences. Gov. Rick Scott signed Gores death warrant after his case was brought to the governors attention during a newspaper editorial board interview. A final argument is that his due process rights were violated during clemency proceedings because he didnt have an opportunity to be heard or represented by counsel. Gore and his cousin, Fred Waterfield, picked up Elliott and a 14-year-old friend who had been hitchhiking. Gore threatened the girls with a gun, handcuffed them and took them to his home. Waterfield, who is serving two life sentences, left before Gore raped the girls, according to authorities. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday on the constitutionality of term limits for county commissioners in a pair of cases that potentially could affect all 20 of the states charter counties. The only opposition came from Bruce Rogow, a lawyer for Rio Vista resident William Telli, who had challenged Broward Countys 12-year term limit. In the second case, lawyers for Sarasota County and a citizens group both argued in favor of the eight-year limit there. Rogow cited a 2002 Supreme Court ruling that struck down term limits for county constitutional officers: sheriffs, court clerks, supervisors of elections, tax collectors and property appraisers. That 4-3 decision was based on the Florida Constitutions Eight is Enough amendment, which sets eight-year term limits for legislators, the governor, lieutenant governor and Cabinet members but does not cover county officials. County home rule charters do not trump the constitution, Rogow told the justices. He argued it would take another constitutional amendment to add other disqualifications from office such as a term limits for county commissioners. Joni A. Coffey, a lawyer for Broward County, contended that the opinion on constitutional officers term limits does not apply to county commissioners because their positions are established by a separate constitutional provision. It makes an exception for charter counties to requirements for county governing boards that include having five or seven members serving staggered four-year terms from single-member districts redrawn after every 10-year census. The constitution itself establishes a basis on which the people, not the Legislature, can establish a disqualification, Coffey said. The 4th District Court of Appeal upheld Browards term limits while a trial judge ruled against Sarasotas limits. The 2nd District Court of Appeal bumped the Sarasota case to the Supreme Court without a decision. Justice Barbara Pariente noted that the 4th District court ruled county commissioners are different from constitutional officers who have statewide duties. She asked Rogow if that was an honest distinction. Its an honest distinction, but I dont think its a persuasive distinction, Rogow said. One option would be for the high court to recede from its 2002 decision, Pariente suggested, but Rogow warned that could lead to unforeseen results. Three current justices participated in that decision. Justices Pariente and R. Fred Lewis voted with the majority while Peggy Quince dissented. Andrea Flynn Mogensen, a lawyer for the Sarasota citizens group, said there was no difference between the two cases. She said there was a sense of urgency, though, because the Supreme Courts decision will determine if two Sarasota incumbents will be able to seek re-election this year or be term-limited out of office. Two Broward commissioners are in the same situation. The high court did not indicate when it would rule. Ten charter counties currently have term limits. The other eight are Brevard, Clay, Duval, Hillsborough, Orange, Palm Beach, Polk and Volusia. In January, voters in Miami-Dade, the states largest county, rejected term limits linked to a pay raise for commissioners. A new proposal without a pay raise will be on the November ballot. The cases are William Telli v. Broward County, et al., SC11-1737, Cathy Antunes, et al. v.

Associated PressWHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Strangers donated the beautifully embroidered wedding dress, the two rings, the honeymoon in Aruba. They acted quickly, too, because the bride was dying of cancer. Or so she said. The state attorney generals office announced Tuesday that Jessica Vega, 25, has been indicted on charges of fraud and grand larceny for getting her dream wedding by falsely claiming she was dying of leukemia. By pretending to have a terminal illness, Vega inexcusably took advantage of the communitys hearts and minds, and profited off of their generosity, said Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Schneiderman said that in 2010, Vega, then living in Montgomery, claimed she had just a few months to live and wanted a dream wedding to Michael OConnell, father of her year-old daughter. Her cause spread quickly around the region, helped by a story in the Times Herald Record. The newspaper said Vega showed a reporter what she said was a doctors letter confirming the diagnosis. Vega and OConnell were married in May 2010. Four months later, OConnell expressed suspicions to the newspaper. Vega said she hadnt lied. If convicted of fraud or grand larceny, Vega could be sentenced 16 months to four years in prison on each of six counts. Associated PressCHICAGO The two certainties in life death and taxes may be more intertwined than Ben Franklin ever imagined: A study found that deadly auto accidents increase on Tax Day. Drivers recklessly racing to the post office to meet the deadline might be one reason. Or it could be that stressing over taxes distracts motorists and contributes to human error, researchers said. They looked at 30 years of data and found 6,783 traffic-related deaths on Tax Day, or 226 per day. That compares with 213 per day on one day a week before the deadline day and another day a week after. Drivers were slightly less likely than passengers and pedestrians to be killed. The traffic death rate on Tax Day which usually falls on April 15 was 6 percent higher than on other April days. That doesnt sound like a lot, but lead author Dr. Donald Redelmeier said it means an average of about 13 extra deaths per day and amounts to about $40 million in annual losses to society. That estimate includes loss of life, injury and property damage costs, said Redelmeier, a physician and researcher at the University of Toronto. The researchers analyzed data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The results appear in Wednesdays Journal of the American Medical Association. Russ Rader, a spokesman for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, said studies have shown drivers are safest on routes they know the best. Risk increases when routes vary like driving to the post office to mail tax returns. The nonprofit group is funded by car insurance companies and studies ways to reduce car crashes. Dr. Mark Nunnally, an associate professor at the University of Chicago who studies patient safety, said while it might make sense to conclude that drivers are more distracted on Tax Day, that is just speculation. Reasons for the increases seen in the study are unknown, he said. A spokeswoman for the Internal Revenue Service declined to comment on the study. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research helped pay for the study.N ATIONC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EDNESDAY, A PRIL 11, 2012 A7 000B1EI 3640 S.

Those advocates want the government to make sure people know what information prospective employers see, so that errors can be corrected and abusive companies can be held responsible. Use of criminal-background data is exploding as the economy struggles back from the worst job crisis in decades, the National Consumer Law Center says in the report, which is being released Wednesday. To meet surging demand, countless dubious companies have sprouted up, it says. Its the Wild West for background-screening report companies, says Persis Yu, lead writer of the report. Theyre generating billions in revenue, but they have little or no accountability. Nearly three-fourths of companies conduct criminal background checks for some job applicants, according to a 2010 study by the Society for Human Resource Management. They buy criminalbackground data from providers of all sizes, including national names like Lexis-Nexis as well as upstarts that could include anyone with a computer, an Internet connection and access to records, the report says. Data providers obtain information from online public records, private vendors, jails and police blotters, it says. Sloppy handling of that data can cause a search on one person to turn up a rap sheet about someone with a similar name, for example. Other common errors include displaying criminal records that were supposed to be sealed or wiped clean, misclassifying minor offenses as major crimes and listing charges that have been dismissed, the report says. The information is more widely available in part because local law-enforcement agencies are selling it to raise money, the group says. It says some data providers refuse to correct errors even when people can document inaccuracies. Thats not an option for many people, Yu said, because employers often ignore laws requiring them to let people correct any false, negative information before making a hiring decision. Further muddying the picture, data providers arent registered with the government, so its impossible to get a full picture of the industry, Yu said. The report is the first in-depth survey of consumer abuse by private companies that sell dodgy dossiers. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has the authority to write rules governing data companies under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the law governing credit-report companies, the report says. The CFPB has proposed adding credit-report companies to the list of companies it will supervise closely. It has not discussed regulating consumer-data providers.

Associated PressWASHINGTON A possible misunderstanding about President Barack Obamas health care overhaul could cloud Supreme Court deliberations on its fate, leaving the impression that the laws insurance requirement is more onerous than it actually is. During the recent oral arguments some of the justices and the lawyers appearing before them seemed to be under the impression that the law does not allow most consumers to buy low-cost, stripped-down insurance to satisfy its controversial coverage requirement. In fact, the law provides for a cheaper bronze plan that is broadly similar to todays so-called catastrophic coverage policies for individuals, several insurance experts said. I think there is confusion, said Paul Keckley, health research chief for Deloitte, a major benefits consultant. I found myself wondering how much they understood the Affordable Care Act. Several times the questions led me to wonder how much (the justices) clerks had gone back into the law in advance of the arguments. Monthly premiums for the bronze plan would be lower, and it would cover a much smaller share of medical expenses than a typical employer plan. Bronze is a very skinny product, said Keckley. Starting in 2014, the health care law requires most Americans to obtain health insurance, either through an employer, a government program, or by buying their own policies. In return, insurance companies would be prohibited from turning away the sick. Government would subsidize premiums for millions now uninsured. The laws opponents argue that Congress overstepped its constitutional authority by issuing the mandate, while the administration says the requirement is permissible because it serves to regulate interstate commerce. The scope of the mandate was one of several key issues argued before the court. If I understand the law, the policies that youre requiring people to purchase ... must contain provision for maternity and newborn care, pediatric services and substance use treatment, said Chief Justice John Roberts. It seems to me that you cannot say that everybody is going to need ... substance use treatment or pediatric services, and yet that is part of what you require them to purchase. That may be true, but the laws bronze plan isnt exactly robust coverage. It would require policyholders to spend thousands of dollars of their own money before insurance kicks in. Thats how catastrophic coverage works now. It means anyone particularly younger, healthy people can satisfy the health care laws insurance requirement without paying full freight for comprehensive coverage they may not need. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli did not highlight the bronze plan in his defense of the law, an omission that may prove significant. I would definitely say that if you listen to the court proceedings it would be easy to come away with the impression that the health care reform law was requiring people to buy Cadillac insurance, which is certainly not the case, said Larry Levitt, head of the Kaiser Family Foundations Initiative on Health Reform and Private Insurance. The foundation is a nonpartisan information clearinghouse. The health care law does impose a minimum set of essential health benefits for most insurance plans. Those benefits have yet to be specified, but are expected to reflect what a typical small-business plan now offers, with added preventive, mental health and other services. On the surface, the minimum benefits requirement does seem to mandate comprehensive coverage. But another provision of the law works in the opposite direction, and the two have to be weighed together. This second provision allows insurance companies to sell policies that have widely different levels of annual deductibles and copayments. A platinum plan would cover 90 percent of expected health care expenses, but on the bottom tier a bronze plan only covers 60 percent. Employer plans now cover about 80 percent. The minimum that people will be required to buy under the health reform law is clearly a catastrophic plan, said Levitt. In return for taking on more financial risk, youll pay lower monthly premiums for a bronze plan, making it easier to budget for. Youll be covered for the same kinds of treatments as everybody else, but your plan wont pay the hospital bill until youve spent a good chunk of your own money out of pocket. A Kaiser study estimated that the annual deductible for a bronze plan could range from $2,750 to $6,350. The deductible is the amount a policy holder must pay directly before insurance payments kick in. A separate study by the foundation found that people buying individual health policies in the current insurance market end up paying an average of 35 percent of their medical costs out of their own pockets, in line with the 40 percent consumers with a bronze plan would face. While the bronze plan is available to anyone, the law also provides for another level of catastrophic insurance limited to people under age 30, and expected to be even skimpier. Such nuances were seemingly lost before the Supreme Court. One of the lawyers representing the plaintiffs, Michael Carvin, asserted during the arguments that Congress prohibits anyone over 30 from buying any kind of catastrophic health insurance. Verrilli did not challenge Carvins characterization, but it is raising eyebrows among insurance professionals. I dont think thats exactly right, said benefits lawyer Mark Holloway of the Lockton Companies, a major insurance broker serving mid-size companies. It depends on what you call catastrophic coverage.

Associated Press The Supreme Court is pictured March 28 in Washington, D.C. Confusion over health care law could cloud deliberations The confusion, in quotes WASHINGTON Some insurance experts say there may be a misunderstanding among members of the Supreme Court about President Barack Obamas health care overhaul law. During the recent oral arguments, some of the justices and the lawyers appearing before them seemed to be under the impression that the law does not allow most consumers to buy bare bones insurance to satisfy its controversial coverage mandate. Here are some excerpts from last months oral arguments: Chief Justice John Roberts: If I understand the law, the policies that youre requiring people to purchase ... must contain provision for maternity and newborn care, pediatric services and substance use treatment. It seems to me that you cannot say that everybody is going to need ... substance use treatment or pediatric services, and yet that is part of what you require them to purchase. Justice Samuel Alito: The mandate is forcing these people (young, healthy individuals) to provide a huge subsidy to the insurance companies for other purposes that the act wishes to serve ... isnt it the case that what this mandate is really doing is not requiring the people who are subject to it to pay for the services that they are going to consume? It is requiring them to subsidize services that will be received by somebody else. Paul Clement, attorney for states suing to overturn the law: If all we were concerned about is the cost sharing that took place because of uncompensated care in emergency rooms, presumably wed have before us a statute that only addressed emergency care and catastrophic insurance coverage. But it covers everything, soup to nuts, and all sorts of other things.... Theres a much bigger cost shifting going on here, and thats the cost shifting that goes on when you force healthy people into an insurance market precisely because theyre healthy ... precisely because theyre not likely to use the insurance theyre forced to buy. Michael Carvin, attorney for the National Federation of Independent Business, suing to overturn the law: One of the issues here is not only that theyre compelling us to enter into the marketplace ... theyre prohibiting us from buying the only economically sensible product that we would want, catastrophic insurance... Congress prohibits anyone over 30 from buying any kind of catastrophic insurance. And the reason they do that is because they needed this massive subsidy.Associated Press

Brian Dunn resigns as Best Buy CEO NEW YORK Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn is stepping down from the helm of the nations largest consumer electronics retailer, which has been criticized for not responding faster to growing competition and the changing shopping habits of Americans. Best Buy Co., based in Minneapolis, said Tuesday that it was a mutual decision, and that there were no disagreements with Dunn on any matter relating to operations, financial controls, policies or procedures. Employers posted more job openings in FebruaryWASHINGTON Employers posted slightly more job openings in February, suggesting that modest hiring gains will continue in coming months. The Labor Department said Tuesday that employers advertised 3.5 million job openings in February. Thats up from a revised 3.48 million in January but still below the three-year high of 3.54 million in December. The fact that job openings remained steady in February suggests that the disappointing March jobs report issued last week could be a temporary bump. It usually takes one to three months for employers to fill openings. US wholesale stockpiles rose 0.9 percent in FebruaryWASHINGTON U.S. wholesale businesses stepped up restocking in February, while more expensive gasoline drove sales higher. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that stockpiles at the wholesale level rose a seasonally adjusted 0.9 percent in February to $478.9 billion. The government also revised January wholesale inventory growth to show a 0.6 percent increase, up from the initial reading of 0.4 percent. Sales at the wholesale level rose 1.2 percent, largely on the strength of gas, hardware, plumbing and heating equipment. Sales were unchanged in January.Drivers to pay 6 percent more for gas this summerNEW YORK U.S. drivers will pay an average of 24 cents more per gallon for gasoline during this summers travel season, the government says. The Energy Information Administration says gasoline will cost an average of $3.95 per gallon from April through September, an increase of 6.3 percent from the same period last year. The peak monthly average should be $4.01 in May. The government says theres a small chance the price for a gallon could climb as high as $4.50 in June.

The decline extended the longest and deepest slump of the year for Wall Street to five days. More than half the first-quarter gain of the Dow Jones industrial average has been wiped out, and more than a third for the Standard & Poors 500. The Dow fell 213.66 points, its third triple-digit loss in four days. It closed at 12,715.93, its lowest since Feb. 2. The dollar and U.S. Treasury prices rose as investors shifted money into lower-risk investments. The yield on the benchmark 10year Treasury note fell for the fifth straight day and dropped below 2 percent for the first time in a month. After the market closed, Alcoa reported much better quarterly earnings than Wall Street expected, providing hope that the losing streak might end. Alcoa is the first of the 30 stocks in the Dow to report results. Hopefully this would change the tone for the market for the next couple of days, but a lot can happen overseas overnight. Thats the big unknown, said Colleen Supran, a principal at the investment adviser Bingham, Osborn & Scarborough in San Francisco. Alcoa, which sells aluminum and is watched as a barometer of the global economy, reported a quarterly profit of 9 cents per share. Analysts were expecting a loss of 4 cents. After nine consecutive quarters of earnings growth, analysts think earnings will be flat this time. Those predictions came before Alcoas impressive results, however. While Wall Street was still sleeping, European markets sold off. The main stock indexes in Spain and France closed down about 3 percent, the equivalent of a 400point drop in the Dow. The yield on 10-year Spanish bonds rose to almost 6 percent. Seven percent is generally considered the level at which governments can no longer afford to raise money on the international bond markets. The 7 percent level forced Greece, the last focal point of the European debt crisis, to seek rescue loans. But Spain is widely considered too big to bail out: It makes up about 11 percent of the economic output of the countries that use the euro currency. Greece makes up about 2 percent.

O PINION Page A12 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 2012 Liberal distortions Ms. Weisers letter published in the March 27 issue blatantly distorts my statements in a previous letter. Even if Ms. Weiser had been out of the country in February, she must have been aware of Mr. Obamas arrogant and deliberate attack on our Constitution when he dictated that religious institutions had to provide birth control to their employees. He was fully aware that his edict runs contrary to the religious freedom provision of the Constitution whereby the government cant and shouldnt intrude in the affairs of religious institutions, but Mr. Obama counts on the blind and unquestioned support of the radical liberals to do his bidding. However, when every religious institution in our country filed strong objections, and when even Vice President Biden and Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania (devout Catholics) apprised him of their opposition and disagreement with Obamas dictate, he reversed this decision (see Chronicles headline of Feb. 11). My point in the letter was that the same liberals who rant and rave about religious intrusion into politics have no qualms about the administrations (governments) intrusion into religious, century-old tenets. That was the only point my letter made, but I am puzzled as to how, from that one singular point, Ms. Weiser deduced that I favored government policy based on religious creed and century old (sic) tenets.Gino Calderone Beverly Hills Open land Oil companies presently pay $86 million aday in taxes, while oil and natural gas subsidies combined amount to $3.6billion per year total.

Sartell Homosassa A powerful voteThe economic system of any human collectivity by whatever name (empire, nation, union, tribe) determines its ethos, its social structure and its creed. At the risk of sounding histrionic, the Supreme Courts decision on the constitutionality of the Affordable Health Care Act is a turning point in this nations history. That act, which was opposed by a significant majority of us, will determine whether we will be a socialist or a capitalist society. It will even influence future decisions by the Court. So it is that the decision as to whom we are going to be has already been made, and according to experts on this particular Courts behavior, it has been made by a single judges opinion. How did we come to this? John McFadden Inverness Re: Chronicle letter to editor, April 8, 2012, A friend disappoints me by Robert E. Hagaman. M r. Hagaman refers to me as his friend, but never did I get a call from him asking me about anything. He assumes I was frustrated, and assumes way too much about my ...wrong tactic... and sudden decisions. He writes of my exemplary service, in the Legislature and while at the Public Service Commission ... she attempted to take the politics out of the commission and make it truly a public service organization. For nearly 16 years I have worked hard and promoted good public service, and never forgot who I was working for: The people, not the political party. I was honored that the people of Tallahassee and surrounding counties asked me to run for the U.S. House. They told me that it did not matter to them what political party I ran in. I knew in good conscience I could no longer remain in the Republican Party that did not practice Republican principles anymore, whose party chair was carted off in handcuffs accused of stealing money from contributions, legislators who were getting two or three paychecks on the government teat and not doing much for it, selling out the people, using contributions for their personal use, and too many transgressions to ignore. I wrote an editorial in newspapers to advise people of the R hypocrisy and I gave examples of the R leadership corruption. I wonder where Bobs outraged voice was when Republican Senate President Mike Haridopolos received $154,000 taxpayer dollars for a sophomoric writing exercise. Things I could never close my eyes to, apparently Mr. Hagaman could. I also knew that to run for a U.S. office, one had to be in one of the two major parties to get the funding necessary to run. After years working in the political arena, I have found titles and labels Democrat, Republican, conservative, liberal many times means nothing. What is a conservative? One of the reasons I became a Republican, was the R platform of less government in our lives. Nothing could be further from the truth today with the Florida Republican cabal. There is selling of policy to the highest contributors; Republican leaders passing legislation that benefit themselves monetarily. This has not one thing to do with the Republican principles Mr. Hagaman thinks they practice. Mr Hagaman even points out that the lobbyists ...again gain control of the legislature, yet expects me to go along? Nothing sudden about my not following the leader, Bob. Did he care when I and others exposed this? Did he help us to fight and rid the party of wrongdoers? Did he say a single word? I cant help wonder where Mr. Hagaman was when the Republican leadership, taking millions from the electric utilities, attacked me when I was on the Public Service Commission for voting against unjustified rate increases, while I was fighting to take the politics out..., and make it truly a public service organization. Not a peep of support from my disappointed friend. Mr. Hagaman has been involved with the local Republican committee, but seems to have no clue what really occurs in the backroom politics of Tallahassee, and doesnt appreciate knowing, even when advised. I fear that he may prefer to keep blinders on. Is it more important for his team to win, at all costs? I have had many people from Citrus County who have observed my public service for years, who know me, and have weighed my history of public service, call me to come back home to run for the Senate or House. My motivation is as it always has been to fiercely protect the people I represent. At a time in America when far too many elected officials put political party politics above all else, it is time for some adults to show up and start to actually solve problems, not add to them. If it was my desire to again become an elected official just to hold an elected office..., I would run for county commission, which I have also been called to run for, stay closer to home, and collect a much larger salary. I imagine that state Sens. Fasano, Paula Dockery, Alex Villalobos, U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, and so many other good Republicans who have opposed the new neo-Republican agenda, might also be a disappointment to the man who wears blinders. No wonder we are in such a mess. Nancy Argenziano represented Citrus County in the Florida House and Florida Senate and served on the Florida Public Service Commission.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member BONDING County, schools get A ratings for prudence B ond ratings are not exactly the kind of issue most people discuss at the dinner table. In fact, bond ratings are not the kind of issue most people ever think about, or really care about. But if a government agency needs to borrow money, bond ratings are important. They are the government or corporate equivalent of a credit rating: They determine if the agency can secure funding, and at what cost. For citizens, the bond rating of their government agencies can ultimately determine if major projects such as building a new school or upgrading roads get funded or if they cannot be done. The good news for citizens of Citrus County is that both our school system and our county government have investment grade ratings from the Fitch Group rating agency, a company that issues opinions on the creditworthiness of government agencies and businesses. Both government agencies get an A rating, which in bond ratings is not the top rating, but is still a very good one. Bond ratings by Fitch range from the very highest AAA to the lowest of C, which means the organization is in default on its obligations. Fitch defines its A rating as expectations of low credit risk. The capacity for payment of financial commitments is considered strong. This capacity may, nevertheless, be more vulnerable to adverse business or economic conditions than is the case for higher ratings. Since bond ratings are issued based on overall financial condition of an organization, they are ultimately the result of many actions over some period of time. This means that despite the economic downturn of the last few years, the rating agency believes both boards have been fiscally prudent in their expenditures and commitments for future expenses. Ratings are also affected by actions of citizens, such as the vote by Citrus County residents to impose a .25 mill levy for school construction. This helped offset some of the reductions in state funding for the school district, and is a positive indicator to a ratings agency that citizens of the county are willing to take actions to protect the financial integrity of their local school system. Maintaining a solid bond rating is as important to our county agencies as a good credit rating is to an individual. We commend fiscally prudent decisions in the past, and we urge continued fiscal responsibility by both boards so that the ratings will be maintained going forward. THE ISSUE: Both county government and the local school system have A rated bonds.OUR OPINION: Good news for residents.

Associated PressNEW YORK Facebook is spending $1 billion to buy the photo-sharing company Instagram in the social networks largest acquisition ever. On the surface, thats a huge sum for a tiny startup that has a handful of employees and no way to make money. But the lack of a business model rarely dampens excitement about hot tech upshots these days. As Facebook has shown, itself without ads or revenue in its early days, money goes where the users are. Instagram lets people share photos they snap with their mobile devices. The app has filters that can make photos look as if theyve been taken in the 1970s or on Polaroid cameras. Its users take photos of everything from their breakfast egg sandwiches to sunsets to the smiling faces of their girlfriends. In a little more than a year, Instagram attracted a loyal and loving user base of more than 30 million people. Apple picked it as the iPhone App of the Year in 2011. Instagrams fans, brand recognition and its potential are difficult to put a price tag on. Yet Facebook has and can afford it. The company is preparing for an initial public offering of stock that could value it at as much as $100 billion in a few weeks. Whats $1 billion? A drop in the bucket, really. Facebook after this IPO is going to be in a position to be predatory. They can make sure no one steps in their way and buy anyone who gets in their way, said Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter, who follows social media. Buying Instagram, he added, not only eliminates a rival but gives Facebook the technology that is gaining crazy traction. Facebook is paying cash and stock for San Franciscobased Instagram and hiring its dozen or so employees. The deal is expected to close by the end of June. Its a windfall not just for Instagrams employees, but the venture capital firms backing the company. Last week, Sequoia Capital led an investment round that valued Instagram at $500 million, according to a person familiar with the matter. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity. Going by the $1 billion price tag, Facebook is paying about $33 for each Instagram user. Thats a fraction of the $118 that Facebook investors will be paying per Facebook user if the company gets its expected $100 billion valuation after going public. By that math, Pachter said, $1 billon doesnt sound crazy. Getting Instagram is a big win for Facebook as it works to harness peoples growing obsession with their mobile devices and sharing every moment of their life. The companys own mobile application is not as easy to use as Instagram, and sharing photos can be downright clunky. Facebooks way, noted Pachter, has always been to buy technology if its better than what it can build on its own. Facebook, which is based in Menlo Park, Calif., said it plans to keep Instagram running independently. Thats a departure from its tendency to buy small startups and integrate the technology or shut them down altogether just so it can hire talented engineers and developers. This is an important milestone for Facebook because its the first time weve ever acquired a product and company with so many users, CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page Monday announcing the deal. We dont plan on doing many more of these, if any at all. He said Facebook plans to keep allowing people to post from Instagram to other social networks. Users will also be able to keep their Instagrams off Facebook if they want to. We think the fact that Instagram is connected to other services beyond Facebook is an important part of the experience, Zuckerberg said. Tech bloggers and analysts immediately began wondering whether Facebooks commitment will be eternal. Theres a long history of companies acquiring other companies and saying that they are going to continue to support the service and then not, said Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst with research firm eMarketer. One relatively recent example is Cisco Systems Inc., which killed off the muchloved Flip video camera less than two years after buying the company behind it. There were some mutterings online about users leaving Instagram now that Facebook has bought it, though in reality Facebook will probably make it more popular. Theres a good reason for Facebook to keep Instagram going as a separate product, even if Facebook integrates some of its technology into its own service so that mobile photo sharing becomes easier. Google, for example, has kept YouTube separate even as it integrated some of its features into other products. Look at who Facebook is competing with the Googles, Apples, Microsofts of the world. They have to build a strong brand and strong consumer platform, Gartner analyst Brian Blau said. Having a separate social network ... is something they needed to do a long time ago.

New rule Associated Press Jenna Talackova, who advanced to the finals of the Miss Canada competition, part of the Miss Universe contest, is pictured April 3 during a news conference in Los Angeles. Talackova was born male and underwent a sex-change operation. Transgender ladies allowed in pageant NEW YORK A rule change that would allow transgender women to participate in the Miss Universe beauty pageant next year is a step forward for equality, advocates said Tuesday after pageant officials announced the policy shift. The announcement of the policy change came a week after the organization decided to allow Jenna Talackova to compete in the Miss Universe pageant this year. Talackova, a Vancouver resident, underwent a sex change four years ago after being born a male. The advocacy group GLAAD called on the Miss Universe Organization to review her case, as well as open the competition to transgender women, after she was disqualified from competing in the Miss Universe Canada contest. Drug vote Associated Press A police officer unpacks marijuana June 3, 2009, in Cali, Colombia. The Spanish village of Rasquera, Spain, is voting in a regional referendum to decide whether to allow the cultivation of marijuana as a source of revenue to pay off municipal debt, with a population of some 960 people in the northeastern Catalonia region. Rebels seek $10 million ransom LIMA, Peru Shining Path rebels are seeking a $10 million ransom for 40 Peruvian construction workers abducted in a pre-dawn raid at the countrys main natural gas field in the Amazon jungle, local officials said Tuesday. The abducted workers, employees of Skanska of Sweden and the Peruvian company Ransa, were seized early Monday in Kepashiato, a hamlet of just over 1,000 inhabitants and no police station, about 60 miles from the Camisea gas fields. A spokesman for the Swedish construction company Skanska, Edvard Lind, said 29 of the workers were Skanska employees. Nine worked for a subsidiary of Ransa, said company spokesman Victor Melgarejo. The workers, who had been building a new gas treatment plant, were rounded up at about 3 a.m. Monday from their hotels. She said they lingered for three hours, buying groceries from local merchants and summoning about 20 residents to an assembly where they railed against the government and the natural gas industry.

More than a year into the Syrian uprising, the international community has nearly run out of options for halting the slide toward civil war. On Tuesday, Annan insisted his peace initiative remains very much alive in part because there is no viable alternative. The U.N. has ruled out any military intervention of the type that helped bring down Libyas Moammar Gadhafi, and several rounds of sanctions and other attempts to isolate President Bashar Assad have done little to stop the bloodshed. If you want to take (the plan) off the table, what will you replace it with? Annan told reporters in Hatay, Turkey, where he toured a camp sheltering Syrian refugees. Facing a Tuesday deadline to pull back its tanks and troops, the Syrian government had said it was withdrawing from certain areas, including the rebellious central province of Homs. But France called the claims a flagrant and unacceptable lie, and activists said there was no sign of a withdrawal. Residents of Homs reported some of the heaviest shelling in months. Hundreds of mortar rounds and shells were falling around all day, resident Tarek Badrakhan told The Associated Press. He said a makeshift hospital housing wounded people and dozens of corpses was destroyed in the shelling. Remembering Titanic Associated Press Laurie and Dan Castaneda, from Long Beach, Calif., walk the pool deck of the Azamara Journey, bound for Halifax, Nova Scotia, for the Titanic Memorial Cruise on Tuesday in New York. Passengers will visit a cemetery where 150 victims of the Titanic are buried. The ship will also feature lectures about life on board the doomed ocean liner and hold a memorial service at sea. Ship leaves NYC to visit Titanic graves in Canada Associated PressNEW YORK Passengers dressed in fur coats and widebrimmed hats strolled the decks of a memorial ship as it began its journey to Canada to visit the spot where the Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean a century ago. The ship was packed on Tuesday with history aficionados who have long been obsessed with the doomed ocean liner. Quite a few wore period costumes, and one boy in a fake white beard was dressed up as Captain Edward John Smith. The cruise ship Journey, operated by Azamara Club Cruises, was carrying 440 passengers when it departed a pier on New Yorks West Side on Tuesday evening, 100 years after the Titanic left Southampton, England. After stopping in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where more than 100 Titanic victims are buried, the cruise will continue on to conduct a memorial service at the spot in the Atlantic where the Titanic sank. Along the way, passengers will listen to lectures about life on board the Titanic and dine at a costumethemed dinner. Ticket prices dropped in recent weeks from about $5,000 per person to $1,000 per person. Its just such a human tragedy that just resonates through the years, said Carol Owens Campbell, 61, of Long Grove, Ill., who was on board with her husband. What would any of us do if that happened to us? There was a festive atmosphere above deck as passengers sipped champagne and explored the ship, which was not decorated in any way to resemble the Titanic and looked like an ordinary cruise liner. Another ship operated by the same British travel agency is retracing the route of the Titanic. The memorial cruise aboard the MS Balmoral set sail from southern England on Sunday and made a brief stop in the Irish town of Cobh on Monday. Kids stop school bus after driver stricken Associated PressMILTON, Wash. A dozen students may not have been looking forward to school on the first day back after spring break, but they knew what to do when their bus driver slumped over the wheel unconscious. Surveillance video shows 13-year-old Jeremy Wuitschick rushing down the aisle and grabbing the wheel on Monday morning as other students yell: Call 911! Wuitschick had noticed the driver was shaking and his arms flailing just as the bus started to pull into Surprise Lake Middle School in Milton, about 30 miles south of Seattle. Wuitschick saw the drivers eyes bulging and heard rasping noises. Students can be heard yelling, Oh my God! and Call 911! Call 911! on the video, as they realize the bus is out of control. Others cried, Stop the bus! and Take the keys out of the ignition! Wuitschick heeded the calls, removing the keys and turning the steering wheel to pull the bus over. The bus slowly came to a stop against the curb. I was just thinking, I dont want to die, Wuitschick said. I turned to the right. Turned to the side of the road. Took the keys out of the ignition. We started slowing down, and I said, Somebody call 911! Wuitschick and another student, Johnny Wood, who trained in first aid by the Red Cross, started chest compressions on the driver until adults arrived. Fife Deputy Schools Superintendent Jeff Short said Tuesday he had no update on the condition of the 43-year-old driver, who was hospitalized in grave condition Monday. The mans wife asked authorities not to release any details about him as relatives were being notified, Short said. The students on the bus met with the principal and counselors, and things were as normal as we can get on Tuesday, Short said. Students are taught what to do to turn off the ignition if a bus driver collapses, as part of the safety training. Its just for this type of situation, Short said. I think they did an outstanding job. The bus didnt hit any other vehicles, and no one was injured. Police Chief Bill Rhoads credited Wuitschicks quick actions. Were just happy the kid was thinking on his feet, he said. Associated Press Independent U. S. Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, left, and Republican Sen. John McCain, of Arizona, are seen with Syrian refugees Tuesday at a camp in Yayladagi, Turkey. McCain and Lieberman toured the refugee camp at the Turkish border with Syria on Tuesday and met Syrians who have fled the violence in their country. Associated PressBEIJING A flamboyant and telegenic politician who until recently seemed destined for the top ranks of Chinas leadership was stripped of his most powerful posts on Tuesday and his wife named in the murder of a British businessman, as Chinese leaders moved to stem a scandal that has exposed divisive infighting. The announcement that Bo Xilai was being suspended from the Communist Partys Politburo and Central Committee and that his wife was a suspect in a homicide investigation put an end to a colorful political career. Media-savvy with a populist flair, Bo gained a nationwide following for busting organized crime and for reviving communist culture while running the inland mega-city of Chongqing. His publicity-seeking ways angered some in the top leadership, however. In recent weeks, allegations of Bos and his familys misdeeds leaked into public view, threatening to complicate preparations by the leadership for a delicate, once-a-decade transition to younger leaders at a congress later this year. This means the political career of Bo Xilai is over, said Cheng Li, a Chinese politics expert at the Brookings Institution in Washington. The party wants to really resolve the Bo Xilai crisis in a relatively short period of time. They want to make sure that the attention for the 18th party congress will not suffer too much from the Bo Xilai episode. Bos patrons included retired party elders who retain influence over senior appointments, and among his vocal supporters were influential generals and party members, scholars and ordinary Chinese who identify themselves as leftists. His removal raises questions about whether Chinese leaders will have to make concessions to them to achieve the political balance that has restrained factional fighting in recent decades. A political succession that seemed completely predictable has been upended, said June Teufel Dreyer, a China politics expert at University of Miami. We may be in for more surprises. An editorial to run Wednesday in the partysPeoples Dailynewspaper appealed for unity and said the investigation into Bos violations would show the leaderships solid resolve in safeguarding party discipline and the rule of law. Tuesdays announcement, carried by state media, provided details of what has been a lurid and embarrassing scandal for the leadership. Bos removal from top government posts came on suspicion of involvement in unspecified but serious discipline violations, the Central Committee said, and his case was handed over to internal party investigators. His wife, Gu Kailai, and an orderly at their home were being investigated for intentional homicide in the death of Briton Neil Heywood, the Xinhua News Agency said. Heywoods death in November in Chongqing was initially blamed on excessive drinking, something his friends have said he was not known to do. Kofi Annan says theres still time to salvage truce Students are taught what to do to turn off the ignition if a bus driver collapses, as part of the safety training.

L ARRYB UGG CorrespondentZEPHYRHILLS The Citrus girls tennis team simply overpowered Zephyrhills High School on Tuesday at a Class 3A regional semifinal match in Pasco County. Citrus High School jumped to a 3-1 singles lead and downed Zephyrhills 5-2 in the match. Zephyrhills (11-3), winner of the District 3A-6, will advance senior No. 1 singles winner Sarah Vande Berg to the state meet next week at Lake Brantley High School. Citrus (12-2) will play at Ocala Forest, 4-1 winners over Land O Lakes, on Thursday. Ocala Forest won the District 3A-5 title while Citrus was runner-up. There was only one Zephyrhills girl who posed a threat to the Canes. Vande berg defeated Citruss Sarah Labrador 6-0, 6-2. She also combined with Amanda Smith to win the No. 1 doubles 6-0, 6-2. Citrus sophomore Melanie Dodd made her record 18-0 as she won the No. 2 singles match over Sydney Owens 6-2, 6-0. I did what I had to do to win, Dodd said. I was being consistent and hit winners when I had a good chance. I had good serves. Dodd wasnt the only one with a good day on the court. The Hurricanes Taylor Jordan beat Alyssa Angelo 6-3, 6-0 to give Citrus a 4-1 lead and ensure the victory. And Jordans victories are an omen for the team. So goes Taylor, so goes Citrus High tennis, Citrus first-year tennis coach Scott Waters said. Every time Taylor wins, we win. We are 12-2 with Taylor. She is a senior. She has been rock steady at the five position. Citruss Jackie Ear won the No. 3 singles, beating Hannah Ungerer 6-3, 6-2. Lena Martone took the No. 4 singles, beating Amanda Smith 6-1, 6-1. The team of Ear and Dodd took the No. 2 doubles, beating Owens and Ungerer 6-0, 6-1. Waters said he is always pleasantly surprised when the team wins. You never know what to expect, he said. Dodd hoped the team would do this well. I knew our team was quite capable of it, she said. No sunshine in Motor City Associated PressDETROIT With the score tied in the fifth inning, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon intentionally walked Miguel Cabrera to load the bases for Prince Fielder. The move worked when Fielder hit a routine flyball. In the eighth, Maddon decided to challenge Fielder again, with first base open and a left-hander on the mound. Prince hit the ball in the perfect spot, Maddon said. Fielders single up the middle scored Miguel Cabrera from second, part of a snowy eighth-inning rally that gave the Detroit Tigers a 5-2 win over the Rays on Tuesday. Austin Jackson homered for Detroit, which is the ALs last unbeaten team after handing the Rays their first defeat. After Fielders tiebreaking single, a light snow shower passed briefly over Comerica Park. Jhonny Peralta added a sacrifice fly later in the inning, and Gerald Lairds RBI single gave the Tigers a three-run lead. Phil Coke (1-0) pitched the eighth, and Jose Valverde finished for his first save of the season. Valverde blew a save for the first time since 2010 in Thursdays opener against Boston.

Lady Pirates beat Nature Coast 4-3 J USTIN P LANTE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Another win, another chance to play. On Tuesday, the Crystal River girls tennis team survived a close call against visiting Nature Coast in the Class 2A regional semifinals, eking out a close 4-3 victory, thanks in big part to wins from Jessica Reynolds, Veronica Williams and doubles tandem Kayla Papp and Ashley Allen. Crystal River moves on to the regional finals Thursday, where they will travel to Pasco High School, which won 4-3 over Gainesville Eastside. The Lady Pirates got off to a fast start. Crystal River took the lead behind singles wins from Papp (No. 1), Williams (No. 5) and Jessica Reynolds (No. 4), despite their No. 2 and No. 3 singles players dropping their sets 3-6, 1-6. With the three wins, Crystal River had a 3-2 advantage heading into the two doubles matches. Crystal Rivers final win came via the district champions, Papp and Allen in the No. 1 doubles match. For the duo, the outcome never seemed to be in doubt, as both sets cruised by with the Lady Pirates taking it 6-3, 6-1. Papp also performed well in her singles match. She took a decisive 6-1 first set, before holding off a late surge from her Nature Coast opponent to end the second set 6-4. Following losses from Allen and Nikki Moynihan, No. 5 singles Williams evened the teams scores with a win. She found her groove early, taking a quick 6-3, 6-1 victory. In the No. 4 slot, first-year player Reynolds overcame a rusty start to take both sets, 7-5, 6-1. Ive played my opponent before, Reynolds said of her match. I lost to her once, so shes tough. The first set was a little rough, I wasnt quite warm yet, but I pulled it out and ended up beating her in two sets. So Im happy. After the last win, the No. 2 doubles match turned into an 8-game pro-set. Crystal Rivers Reynolds and Nikki Moynihan battled back from a 3-6 deficit to take a 6-5 lead. The Pirates tandem, however, couldnt hold the lead en route to an 8-6 loss. But the outcome was merely for fun, as Crystal River wrapped up another win on its way to the regional finals. Im very excited for regionals, Jessica Reynolds said. I really hope we go to state. This is my first year playing, so I think it would be really cool. See RAYS / Page B4 Rays fall to Tigers 5-2 for first defeat Crystal River slams Tavares Pirates blank Bulldogs 11-0 S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Three Crystal River batters slugged home runs as Pirates senior Donnie Dewees delivered five shutout innings Tuesday to help his baseball club even its district record for the regular season and secure the No. 3 seed in the upcoming District 5A-7 tournament with an 11-0 mercyrule victory over Tavares. Dewees allowed three hits and two walks while striking out five and received plenty of support, including 13 total Pirate hits and a pair of double plays by his defense. The senior lefty also aided his cause at the plate, launching a solo homer in the second inning moments after Crystal River junior center fielder Brandon Brooks drilled a hanging curveball over the left-field fence for two runs. As a team, the Pirates (156, 5-5) sent 11 batters to the plate in the second, getting six hits for seven runs. Senior first baseman Josh Howell led off the third inning with a home run to right to ignite Crystal River for four more runs off five hits in the inning. Pirates sophomore catcher Mason Pateracki went 3 for 3 on the night, while Dewees and junior second baseman Michael Kidd each added a pair of hits. Donnie throws for contact, and when hes working fast and throwing strikes, hes tough, Crystal River coach Bobby Stack said. The defense plays well behind him when he works fast and gets out there and does his thing. Our players and coaches did an outstanding job and I was proud of everybody, Stack added. But by the same token, were trying to keep that as an expectation. Bulldogs junior starter Rakeem Frederick exited in the second after yielding six hits. He was relieved by freshman Brady Singer, who surrendered Crystal Rivers other seven hits while also walking two and striking out one. Senior Wade Irwin came in for the final three Pirate outs, forcing a fly out and a double-play groundball. Howell discussed taking advantage of the Bulldog pitching struggles and getting himself back on track with his solo blast. Ive been kind of slumping lately, just trying to heat back up, he said. The new pitcher came in and he wasnt bringing anything impressive. It looked like a beach ball coming in, and I got a good hack on it. Tavares loss drops it to the No. 4 seed in District 5A7 and puts the club at 8-11 overall (3-7 in district). Crystal River plays at Citrus on Friday. J AMES B LEVINS CorrespondentDADE CITY Two Pirates teams battled on the dry land of a tennis court, but only one raised the flag of victory. And it wasnt Crystal River. The Crystal River boys tennis team hit the road to Dade City to play the Pasco High School Pirates in Class 2A regional play Tuesday afternoon. At the days conclusion, Pasco smoothly defeated Crystal River 4-0 in a best-of-four competition, proceeding to the next round and effectively ending Crystal Rivers season. Crystal Rivers No. 1 seed Brandon Papp lost 6-4, 6-4 while the No. 2 match went much the same for Travis Swanson, who lost in straight sets 6-4, 6-2. Matt Allen was soundly dispatched in the No. 3 seeded match 6-1, 6-3. The No. 4 match decided the day as Alex Papp lost 6-1, 6-0. His loss ended the meet, interrupting the No. 5 match that was in the middle of being played by Ryan Johnson. Crystal River head coach Bill Reyes had nothing but praise for his team and how hard they played this season despite the recent loss. The Pirates finished in the top two in the district for the second consecutive year and Reyes believes they will be back again for many future seasons to come.

I love to watch great golf on a great golf course, but I also watch and examine the swings of the greatest players in the world. Sundays pairing of Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen was a perfect example of new school verse old school. When I watch the PGA Tour, most of the golf swings look very similar and factory made. Then a few look like they just grabbed a club and said I can hit that little white ball. Bubba is a perfect example of this. If you watched golf back in the 1970s and 1980s, you saw golfers with much different swings. Today, the young golfers are all taught the same way and it is hard to determine a player by swing alone. I am sure most of you could tell Arnold Palmer by the way he swings. I think it is very important as amateur golfers we work with what we have. Not everyone can swing like Tiger Woods and Adam Scott. The PGA Tour professional is in the gym every day working out, becoming more flexible and stronger. If you are like most golfers, you want to play better, but most important, you want to have more fun doing it. That is why, as an instructor, it is important for me to watch my students swings and physiques and determine how best to instruct them with the tools they already possess. It is also important for me to ask the proper questions to understand what my student wants out of his or her golf games. Not everyone wants to be a tour player, and as a teacher we have to detail our lesson plan accordingly. For example, tour players work very hard on clearing their hips on the downswing before moving any other part of their body. We have all heard on TV look how well he cleared his hips. So as golfers, we go out to the driving range and say, OK, I am going to clear my hips and inevitably we hit the ball worse than before. This is most likely because when you move your hips, you move your shoulders and chest, and the club is stuck behind you. When we are at the address position, the arms and hands are in front of the body, much like they should be at impact. If you rotate the chest and hips at the start of the downswing, the arms end up behind the body. What they do not talk enough about on TV is what happens after the hips have cleared. After the hips clear, the arms and hands then drop down without the shoulders moving. I am sure if you try this without a stretching regimen, you will most likely find yourself in traction. In order for this not to happen, I work with my students on making a good shoulder turn in the back swing, then get the arms moving first in the down swing to return in front of the chest. At that point, the hips and chest can rotate through to the finish. Most amateur golfers do not swing their arms well enough in the golf swing. The average golfer tries to create speed by using the slower, bigger muscles of the chest. As golfers, we use the bigger muscles to create the power in the back swing and the faster, smaller muscles to unleash that power on the forward swing. So next time you hit the range, try to make a better shoulder turn and swing your arms to a nice, balanced finish.

Associated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Arkansas fired coach Bobby Petrino on Tuesday, publicly dressing him down for unfairly hiring his mistress and intentionally misleading his boss about everything from their relationship to her presence at the motorcycle accident that ultimately cost him his job. Athletic director Jeff Long announced his decision at an evening news conference and laid out a stunning laundry list of misdeeds against the man he hired away from the Atlanta Falcons four years ago. The 51-year-old Petrino, a married father of four, had maintained an inappropriate relationship with 25year-old Jessica Dorrell for a significant amount of time and at one point had given her $20,000, Long said. He would not disclose details of the payment, but said both parties confirmed the gift. Dorrell, a former Razorbacks volleyball player, worked for the Razorbacks Foundation before she was hired by Petrino on March 28. Long said she was one of three finalists out of 159 applicants and got the job after a time frame Long said was shorter than our normal affirmative action hiring process. Petrino never disclosed his conflict of interest in hiring Dorrell or the payment, Long said. And he ignored multiple chances to simply come clean. He made the decision to mislead the public, (and it) adversely affected the university and the football program, Long said, choking up at one point as he discussed telling players that their coach was gone. There was a pattern of misleading and manipulative behavior to deceive me. It was an abrupt ending for Petrino, who had built Arkansas into a Southeastern Conference and national power over four seasons, including a 21-5 record the past two years. But Long made it clear that the success on the field was overshadowed by repeated deceptive acts and that no one was more important than the program itself. Long said Petrino was fired with cause meaning he will not receive a multimillion-dollar buyout and there were no discussions about ways to keep Petrino at Arkansas. Long declined comment when asked about Dorrells job status. Petrino finishes his tenure at Arkansas with a 34-17 record in four seasons, leading the Razorbacks to a No. 5 final ranking last season and a Cotton Bowl win over Kansas State. He did not immediately issue a statement. The April 1 accident left him with four broken ribs, a cracked vertebra in his neck and numerous abrasions on his face. The avid motorcycle rider said the sun and wind caused him to lose control on the windy twolane highway about 20 miles southeast of Fayetteville. What he failed to mention, both at a news conference and to Long, was the presence of a Dorrell. That revelation was made public when the state police released the accident report. Petrino informed Long of Dorrells presence 20 minutes before the police released the report to the public, also admitting to what he called a previous inappropriate relationship with Dorrell. Long placed Petrino on paid leave later that night, saying he was disappointed in Petrino and promising to review the coachs conduct. He said his review found that the relationship between the two had lasted a significant amount of time. As the review continued, the state police released the audio of the 911 call reporting Petrinos accident. It revealed Petrino didnt want to call police following the crash, and a subsequent police report showed he asked police if he was required to give the name of the passenger during the accident.

T he Presidential Invitational trophy is displayed on a shelf in the golf shop at 7 Rivers Golf & Country Club. Past champions names engraved on the trophy include Mike Sanderson, Rick Powers, Bob Bleakley, Kelly Gosse, Danny Aylwin, Denny Allen and Pip Patton. These names bring to mind how competitive this high-level tournament has been throughout its 45-year history. The emotional roller coaster golf often provides throughout a round reminds us of the joy of winning and disappointment of defeat. What is it like coming down the stretch on Sunday at The Presidential as one of the leaders? And how do the finishing holes at 7 Rivers Golf & Country Club play? The final three holes are capable of providing drama. Nerves and pressure can do funny things to the golf swing. Negative thoughts can creep in. The player with a strong positive mind can play these holes under par, but we also know disaster lurks beyond the fairways. Lets examine what the players will face Sunday. No. 16 is a 397yard par 4 from the back tees. It is a treelined hole that doglegs to the left and the green is not visible from the tee box. The dogleg may tempt the long hitter to cut the corner, but most competitors will aim their tee shot for the middle of the fairway. The hazard on the left side of the fairway will quickly gobble a drive that hooks too much and can block out the second shot. A drive that fades may gratefully find the waste bunker and make the second shot more complicated but not impossible to hit the green in regulation. A good tee shot in the fairway will leave a distance of 150 yards or less to the green. If players were asked before the round if they would take par on this hole, most would take even par and run. No. 17 is a 556yard par 5 slight dogleg right from the blue tees. It will yield birdies all day. The tee shot is the first key for success. A drive hit down the left side with a slight fade is perfect. There is trouble on the right side of the fairway if the fade turns into a nasty slice. A fairway wood on the second shot should leave the player a third shot somewhere inside the 100yard marker. Distance control with a sand wedge on the third shot leaves a putt for birdie, but this green can be easily misread. Experience here is a plus. No. 18 is a great finishing hole. It is a 377-yard par 4. From the tee, it may look rather benign with a generous fairway, but an errant tee shot may find water to the right and trouble to the left. The second shot to the green is critical. A shot finishing above the hole leaves a tough fast putt especially when the palms get sweaty from nerves. Birdies are earned on this hole. Titles are won and lost on this sometimes diabolical green, but this hole is definitely attackable. The entire back nine has some great holes. The 10th hole is a fun dogleg right. The 14th hole will challenge the best of players as the No. 2 handicap hole on the course. It will be a great weekend for all the competitors. Who will take home the title of 2012 Presidential Invitational Champion this year? Tee times begin at 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday on both the first and 10th tee. Spectators are welcome.

Pirates double up Trinity Catholic 4-2The Crystal River softball team went to Ocala on Tuesday night and took a 4-2 victory over Trinity Catholic. The Pirates McCale Wilson went the distance, allowing just one earned run and five hits while striking out five and issuing no walks. Offensively, Laynee Nadal went 2 for 4 with three RBIs and a run for Crystal River. Brooke Levins had a 2-for-4 night and teammate Emily Laga added an RBI. The Pirates (13-7) play Thursday at Springstead. Panthers cant hold big lead The Lecanto softball team led 5-0 in the seventh inning but couldnt hold on at The Villages in an eventual 6-5 loss. Offensively for the Panthers, Amber Russo had an insidethe-park home run during a 2for-2 night at the plate. Lecantos Paige Richards was 2 for 4 with a run scored, Andrea Coutu had three hits, an RBI and a run and Amber Atkinson had a hit and two RBIs. Lecanto (14-8) hosts Wildwood on Thursday for Senior Night. Hurricanes sweep past West Port 7-2The Citrus baseball team stayed in contention for the No. 1 seed in the upcoming District 6A6 tournament with a 7-2 triumph over West Port in Ocala. Citrus and Springstead finish with identical 6-2 records, but Hurricanes coach Brady Bogart thinks his team will grab the top slot on a tiebreaker. Hurricanes senior Pat Martin threw a complete game, yielding one earned run and scattering seven hits while striking out six and walking none. Kyle Tobin (RBI), Martin (RBI) and Garrett Wilkinson each had two hits for Citrus. The Hurricanes (12-8, 6-2) host Forest on Thursday.Panthers sink Weeki Wachee 14-2The Lecanto baseball team took a 14-2 victory at Weeki Wachee on Tuesday night. Skylar Summers (three RBIs, run) and Gary Levengood (RBI, run) each tripled for Lecanto (10-9) while Scott Stearns gave up two runs in four innings to pick up the victory. Also pacing the Panthers offensively were Jacob Sims (two runs, RBI), Levi OSteen (three runs), Stearns (double, two RBIs, run) and Jimmy Mooney (run). Lecanto, who also received an inning of scoreless relief from John Adams, plays at Belleview on Thursday. in the bottom of the eighth, Tampa Bay chose to pitch to Fielder, Detroits lefthanded swinging cleanup hitter. Rays southpaw Jake McGee was on the mound. The righty-lefty matchup doesnt matter with Cabrera. Theres no pitcher you like there, because he doesnt care who he is facing. He just hits the ball, Maddon said. I liked the lefty-lefty matchup with Prince. Fielder foiled the strategy with his single off McGee (01), and Cabrera lumbered around to score for a 3-2 lead. Rick Porcello allowed two runs and seven hits in seven innings for the Tigers in a game that began amid snow flurries with the temperature in the 40s. Porcello struck out four and walked one. He commanded the fastball on both sides of the plate and when he does that, he pitches like he did today, said Laird, Detroits catcher. Running sinkers in on them and then sinkers away, they didnt know what to look for. Throwing his offspeed pitches off that, I definitely think its a great building point for him. Tampa Bays Matt Moore allowed two runs and four hits in 6 2-3 innings. He walked five one intentionally and struck out four in his second career regular-season start. The 22year-old also started a playoff game last year, not long after making his debut. Tampa Bay went ahead 21 in the seventh on an RBI infield single by Desmond Jennings, but Jackson homered in the bottom half off Moore. Detroit has won its first four games three in its final at-bat. The Rays lost for the first time after a threegame sweep of the New York Yankees. It was their first regular-season loss in nine games. They won their last five of 2011 to snatch a surprising playoff berth. Tampa Bay opened the scoring in the third when Evan Longoria drew a bases-loaded walk. Detroit tied it in the bottom half when Moores wild pitch enabled Jackson to score. I choked on a changeup and bounced it, Moore said. That was just an awful pitch. NOTES: Tampa Bay OF Luke Scott missed the game and is day to day with a tight left hamstring. ... Tigers manager Jim Leyland said INF Brandon Inge (strained left groin) was heading to Triple-A Toledo for a rehabilitation assignment Tuesday night. ... Leyland also said LHP Adam Wilk will pitch Saturday against the White Sox in Chicago. Detroit had a vacancy in its rotation after Doug Fister went on the DL with a left side strain. ... There also was a light snow shower in the fifth inning. ... Tampa Bay used a starting pitcher age 30 or younger for a 900th consecutive game, a streak dating to 2006.

Citrus defeats Wildwood 4-3 Lady Canes prevail in home softball game J OE K ORNECKI III CorrespondentINVERNESS The Citrus Hurricanes softball team defeated the Wildwood Wildcats 4-3 in a wild finish at Vicki Overman Field on Tuesday night. The girls were resilient, said Citrus head coach Larry Bishop. The games this week are like practice games for the (district) tournament. I was pleased with our defense and pitching, and I was proud that we stayed loose and scored the winning run. In the bottom of the seventh, Citrus Danielle Garcia led off with a line-drive single into left field and was replaced by pinch runner Emily Parker. Molly Price belted another single, and Morgan Metzger laid down a great sacrifice bunt as Parker and Price advanced to second and third. Wildwood pitcher Keyana Solomon uncorked a wild pitch, allowing Parker to come home for the winning run. The game started off well for the Hurricanes (9-11) as they scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning. The first run was scored on a botched play by the Wildcats when a pop-up off Melissa Michauds bat was caught by Wildwood in the infield, but no one covered home plate. That allowed Morgan Metzger to trot home from third for a 1-0 Canes lead. Devon Perrine scored the next Citrus run off a wild pitch for a 2-0 advantage, and Amy Abramowich, who went 2 for 3 in the game, smacked an RBI double for a 3-0 lead. Kelly Abramowich shut down the Wildcats (3-9) offense as she struck out eight Wildwood batters and gave up no hits in four innings pitched. Kelly Abramowich did get into some trouble with her control as she walked six. The Wildcats were threatening in the top of the second with runners at second and third, but Abramowich would strike out the next three Wildcat batters to retire the side. Kayla Quesenberry relieved Kelly Abram owich in the top of the fifth as the two combined to strikeout 14 Wildwood batters. The Wildcats left 11 runners on base, including leaving the bases loaded twice. Despite the runners left on base, the Wildcats didnt pack it in as they held Citrus in check behind good defense and pitching to remain in striking distance. Wildcats hurler Keyana Solomon displayed good control, pitching the whole game and only walking one. Down 3-1 in the top of the seventh, the Wildcats mounted a rally off Quesenberry. Solomon hit a hard RBI single that pulled them to within one run of the lead, and Tiffany Zitos RBI single tied the game at 3-3. The Hurricanes will host Seven Rivers at 6 p.m. Thursday.

Associated PressCINCINNATI Carlos Beltran and David Freese homered again on Tuesday night, and Kyle Lohse provided another stingy performance, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 31 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The defending World Series champions are 5-1 for the first time since 2008. Beltran hit his third homer off Mike Leake (0-1). Freese added a two-run shot off Leake also his third. St. Louis came into the game leading the majors with nine homers. Blue Jays 7, Red Sox 3 TORONTO Kyle Drabek won for the first time since June, Edwin Encarnacion homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox 7-3. Drabek (1-0) struggled in two starts against Boston last season, allowing 12 runs and 15 hits and taking the loss in a 14-1 home defeat on June 12, his last start before being demoted to Triple-A. The right-hander was much sharper this time, giving up one run and three hits in 5 1-3 innings and setting down nine straight in one stretch. He walked three and struck out four. Jason Frasor and Luis Perez each worked 1 1-3 innings and Casey Janssen gave up a two-run double to Adrian Gonzalez in the ninth before David Ortiz was caught looking at strike three, stranding runners at second and third. Mariners 1, Rangers 0 ARLINGTON, Texas Neftali Feliz pitched seven crisp innings in his first major league start and the Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners. Feliz allowed four hits and struck out four in his first game since the former closer failed to hold a two-run lead in Game 6 of the World Series. The Cardinals won in seven games. David Murphy had three hits and drove in the only run with an infield single in the second inning. NATIONAL LEAGUEDodgers 2, Pirates 1 LOS ANGELES Andre Ethier hit a tiebreaking homer with two outs in the eighth inning, sending the Los Angeles Dodgers to a victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates in their home opener. Exactly 50 years after Dodger Stadium opened, Ethier hit a solo shot on his 30th birthday, a drive into the right-field stands off Jason Grilli (0-1). Kenley Jansen (1-0) pitched the eighth, and Javy Guerra pitched the ninth for his third save, sending the Dodgers to a 4-1 start to their first season since resolving Frank McCourts messy ownership tenure. Nationals 6, Mets 2 NEW YORK Ross Detwiler pitched five scoreless innings and the Washington Nationals beat New York, handing the Mets their first loss of the season on the same night they learned David Wright had broken a finger. Detwiler (1-0) allowed two hits, struck out six and walked one. Ian Desmond homered off Dillon Gee (0-1) leading off the game, and Jayson Werth had four hits of the Nationals 13 hits and drove in a run.

Dodgers (Billingsley 1-0), 10:10 p.m. Associated PressMIAMI A contrite Ozzie Guillen sat in the heart of Little Havana seeking forgiveness for what the Miami Marlins manager called the biggest mistake of his life saying he admired Fidel Castro. This wasnt some offhanded insult about a sports writer, the type of thing that got the outspoken Guillen in trouble in Chicago. This was personal to the fan base the Marlins rely on so much that they built their new stadium in the middle of the citys Cuban-American neighborhood. Castro is the enemy of those fans. So after being suspended for five games Tuesday, the Marlins manager tried to quell the tempest. Im here on my knees to apologize, Guillen said. Im very sorry about the problem, what happened. I will do everything in my power to make it better. ... When you make a mistake like this, you cant sleep. A chastened Guillen, who has a history of polarizing comments about gays and immigrants, among others, spoke without a script and made no disclaimers. He said hell do whatever he can to repair relations with Cuban-Americans angered by his praise of the Cuban dictator, remarks he said he didnt mean. Guillen, who is Venezuelan, told Time magazine he loves Castro and respects the retired Cuban leader for staying in power so long. In response, at least two Miami politicians said Guillen should lose his job. Callers on Spanish-language radio in Miami agreed and 100 demonstrators picketed Marlins Park toting signs like NO APOLOGIES FIRE HIM NOW. He is full with hypocrisy, said Luis Martinez, who has lived in Miami since the late 1950s. I dont accept any kind of pardon from him. They should get him out. The team didnt consider firing Guillen or asking him to resign five games into his tenure, Marlins president David Samson said. Guillen was hired to help usher in a new baseball era for the Marlins, saddled in recent years with mediocre teams and worse attendance. The team was to rely on South Floridas large Cuban-American population to help rebuild its fan base with the $634 million ballpark that opened last week. At the hourlong news conference Tuesday morning, there was little evidence of Guillens roguish charm or quick wit, which have made him a favorite with fans and reporters since he became a major league manager in 2004. Speaking somberly, he took full responsibility for his comments, but said they were misinterpreted by Times reporter. It was a personal mistake of the thing I had in my mind and what I said, Guillen said in Spanish. What I wanted to say in Spanish, I said in English in a wrong way. Guillen said he doesnt love or admire Castro. I was saying I cannot believe somebody who hurt so many people over the years is still alive, he said. Time said Tuesday it stands by its story. Guillen said the uproar he created has left him sad, embarrassed and feeling stupid. He said he accepted the teams punishment. When youre a sportsman, you shouldnt be involved with politics, he said. Im going to be a Miami guy for the rest of my life. I want to walk in the street with my head up and feel not this bad, the way I feel now.

Stalker professed love to Baldwin NEW YORK A Canadian actress accused of stalking Alec Baldwin sent him a string of emails begging him to marry her, according to a police complaint. Genevieve Sabourin was arraigned on aggravated harassment and stalking charges Monday, a day after her arrest in New York City. Police said Baldwin and Sabourin met a decade ago on a movie set and initially had been friendly, but the relationship apparently took a turn for the bizarre in recent days. Alba to mark Poetry Month LOS ANGELES Jessica Alba is adding her voice to National Poetry Month, helping to lure children into the art form. Alba is among more than a dozen celebrity parents whose poetry readings are airing on the Disney and Disney Junior channels this month. Readings by Viola Davis, Caroline Kennedy, Liev Schreiber and Katie Holmes also are featured in A Poem Is ...., a shortform series that sets verse to classic Disney animation. Langston Hughes Mary Ann Hoberman and May Swenson are among the writers whose work is included. Travis sued by ex-wife/manager NASHVILLE, Tenn. Randy Travis is being sued by his exwife and former manager. Travis says the lawsuit filed last week by Elizabeth Travis in Nashville, Tenn., lacks merit and that its unfortunate that its come to this. But the country music star in the statement from his publicist doesnt address her claim that he hired men to strip her office of records and memorabilia related to his career. Elizabeth Travis claimed her ex-husband made it impossible for her to do her job and terminated their management agreement without written warning. Shes asking for damages, attorney fees, litigation costs and whatever other damages the court feels appropriate. The Travises divorced in 2010 after 19 years of marriage. Associated PressBonnie Raitt had been thinking about working with Grammy-winning producer Joe Henry for years. And Henry had been kicking around the idea of reaching out to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member whose voice he adores forever. It wasnt until mutual friend Allen Toussaint made a cosmic connection that the two finally got together, launching Raitt on the journey to Slipstream, her first new album in seven years. During a recording session with Aaron Neville, Toussaint coyly suggested that Henry work with Raitt in the future. And when Toussaint speaks, Henry always listens. Hes not like anybody else on this earth, Henry said. Hes like Yoda. The producer called the performer shortly thereafter and, as the great New Orleans producer and performer suspected, the chemistry between Raitt and Henry was dynamite. I was about a month away from thinking of calling and I got the contact from my office saying Joe wants to speak to you, Raitt said. And I just thought it was so synchronistic. It was one of those really great times, a really great phone call. That first call went on forever. I didnt even do that when I was in high school, talk to someone on the phone for three hours, but we did, Henry said. And we talked about everything. That conversation led to several more and a flurry of emails, and eventually an invitation to come to Henrys home studio in the Los Angeles area, where both live. He offered her his assistance and told her that if she would pay for the time of his musicians, the engineer and the catering, he would offer his services and his studio for free. And if she didnt like the music that resulted, she was under no obligation to release it. Henrys invite came after a long period of relative inactivity for Raitt, 62. Shed lost her parents, her brother and a close friend over a five-year period that included the release of her last album, 2005s Souls Alike, and touring both on her own and with Taj Mahal. So she took a break. After two years of little more than the occasional show, she began missing the road. But she didnt think she was ready to put the energy into the recording and promotional work that was necessary to produce an album, on which she could hang a tour. So she really didnt have elaborate expectations when she joined Henry. They thought theyd spend a few days on a handful of songs, but after three days, they had nine. It was like the pilot light was on, but he turned the gas up, Raitt said. They emerged from those sessions with four new cuts for the album Henry compositions God Only Knows (perhaps the albums standout) and You Cant Fail Me Now (co-written with Loudon Wainwright III) and the Bob Dylan covers Million Miles and Standing in the Doorway. And Raitt emerged aflame with the need to pull her touring band together to cut more tracks. She eventually added eight others to Slipstream and the cuts left over from those Henry sessions will be released in some way after she completes tours of the United States, Australia and Europe over the next year. I just kept going, Raitt said. I just felt so ... inspired is the word Id use. It was so comfortable, inspirational, especially coming out of not being in capital letters, BONNIE RAITT. It was a great re-entry. It was just like someone put the paddles on your heart and said, Welcome back. Slipstream, her 19th album and her first on her own label, Redwing Records, is a mix of styles and flavors. Al Anderson, formerly of NRBQ, contributes three songs and plays on four, acting as a counterpunch to Henrys more somber songs. And Raitt even offers a reggae version of Gerry Raffertys Right Down the Line. Im as excited about playing these songs on the road as I was in the studio, Raitt said. And to have the jewels of these Dylan songs and the Joe Henry songs, and to know that Ill have that other project come out is just a thrill for me, and reignited the passion Ive always had for music and reinforced that connection I have with my band and how much I was born to do this. Im as excited about this tour as I was the time I had my first album. Bonnie Raitts latest Birthday: The possibilities for more personal achievement than usual in the year ahead look particularly encouraging. A word of warning, however: Be careful not to attempt to do too much simultaneously or everything could come a cropper. Aries (March 21-April 19) Success shouldnt be denied you unless you get impatient and start to judge events before you have all the facts at your disposal. Hold your horses. Taurus(April 20-May 20) Just because you dont get everything you want is no reason to feel sorry for yourself. Concentrate on what you did get and count your blessings, not the ones that got away. Gemini(May 21-June 20) Instead of feeling obligated to do business with the same firm youve always gone to, try another company that is offering you a deal. Sentiment wont save you dollars. Cancer(June 21-July 22) If you fail to stick to an earlier agreement and instead decide to break the pact you made, youll cause complications for yourself, as well as tarnish your image. Dont do it. Leo(July 23-Aug. 22) Its fun to get together with friends and let it all hang out, but be careful to follow sensible health habits or youll pay a price. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If youre anticipating getting something for nothing, itll make you quite vulnerable to a canny manipulator. Dont be anyones puppet. Libra(Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you sense there is something wrong in a valued relationship, you should bring the matter out into the open. An honest, frank discussion should get things back on track. Scorpio(Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Trying to rationalize your troubles away never works it can be your worst enemy. This is especially so if it encourages you to postpone attending to a matter that needs immediate attention. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It wont be one of your better days for managing personal resources if you are more reactive than introspective. Think of the consequences before you do anything. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The results of your involvements are likely to be exactly as you anticipate. Be sure to think positive about everything and do what leads to victory, not defeat. Aquarius(Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Although you normally keep everything you can out in the open, you might be tempted to resort to some subterfuge. Because this isnt your usual style, itll make you very uncomfortable. Pisces(Feb. 20-March 20) If youre going to do something for a friend, do it out of the kindness of your heart and not in hopes of looking good and/or being rewarded.

Former President Gerald Ford is remembered in his hometown of Grand Rapids by a museum and a stretch of interstate. Now, a graffiti artist has decided to memorialize the 38th commander in chief on the freeway that bears his name. Several stenciled Ford images have popped up recently along east I-196 in the West Michigan city. One is accompanied by the phrase, I am indebted to no man words spoken by Ford in 1974 after he took the oath of office. It was taken from the full quote, I am indebted to no man and only one woman, my dear wife, Betty, as I begin this very difficult job. They do seem fun and playful, ignoring the fact that its defacement of public property, James Draper, registrar at the Gerald R. Ford Public Museum, told Mlive.com for a story Tuesday. Draper said he was speaking personally and not on behalf of the museum. The museum itself isnt taking an official position on the graffiti, though one official said its difficult to support. No matter how genuine or welldone it is, or how great the intent, its very difficult for us to condone something like this that hasnt been approved by the city, Deputy Director Jim Kratsas said. The freeway is technically under the jurisdiction of the Michigan Department of Transportation. Department spokesman John Richards told The Associated Press that the graffiti will be removed. We are big fans of art when its in its proper place, Richards said. Anything that might distract folks from their eyes on the road is a concern to us. David Gianfredi, assistant professor of illustration at Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, said authorities ought to leave the graffiti in place. The use of the quote, for example, conveys something deeper than mere scrawl on the wall, he said. The problem is getting the general public to see it as more than just a teenage kid marking up someones property, he said. You cant just put up obscenities on a wall and say its art. You have to look at community standards and allow that to carry the day.

E DUCATION Section C WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Youll find lots ofsporting goodsto choose from in our classified pages. 794606 Associated PressMIAMI Florida has the highest enrollment nationwide of 4-year-old children in a state pre-kindergarten program, but a new report warns the state may see little return on its investment because of poor quality and underfunding. The National Institute for Early Education Researchs annual report released Tuesday finds Florida tops the nation in access, with 76 percent of children enrolled. Yet state funding per child is significantly below the nationwide average, and Florida meets only three of 10 quality benchmarks. Unfortunately, Florida has the lowest teacher qualifications in the country, said Steve Barnett, director of the research center at Rutgers University. What makes it especially unfortunate is that Florida has the highest enrollment. Because teacher qualifications are so low, Barnett said, Its very unlikely you have much of an impact, and the impact is going to be especially weak for poor kids. Stuart Greenberg, director of Floridas Office of Early Learning, said the states universal, free program for 4-year-old children has seen positive results: Nearly 77 percent of children who had completed the program scored as kindergarten ready on two assessments given within the first 30 days of kindergarten last school year. By comparison, only 52.9 percent who had not participated scored at the same level on those exams. We are seeing students that attend VPK come in better prepared, Greenberg said. In Florida, teachers in state pre-kindergarten programs are required to have completed coursework in early literacy and a child development associate credential, which Barnett characterized as little more than a high school diploma. Florida also falls behind Pre-K access on rise, but quality a concern See Pre-K / Page C2 Report: state has lowest teacher qualifications in country; funding lower than national average Lifelong learner Kid-driven Crystal River Primary School principal to retire M ATTHEWB ECK Staff writer CRYSTAL RIVERI f you ask Eddie Speight to sum up her 33-year career as an educator in the Citrus County School District, she can do it in one word exciting. Its been exciting because of all the changes that have happened during my career, she said. I feel so fortunate because Ive touched the lives of children. Thats what I wanted to do. Speight, 64, will leave her post as principal of Crystal River Primary School at the end of the school year in May. Her plans are to work until her 65th birthday in December and retire through the DROP program afterward. Although she will be officially retired, her plans dont include sitting around and watching time pass. I will do volunteer work. I dont want to get out of the learning mode. I think of myself as a lifelong learner, she said. Whether it will be in the school or volunteering in other ways, Im sure I will be volunteering in some way to help children. Speight began her career as a classroom teacher at Crystal River Primary School in 1979. Through the years she filled a number of roles at the school, including media specialist, Title I reading specialist and a technology specialist. In 1998 she left the school for two years to work as a regional technology specialist assisting eight schools with their technology issues. In 2001 she returned to the primary school where she served as assistant principal for several years before taking the position of principal in December of 2005. The past couple of years at her school have presented some unique challenges in the way of a major renovation to the facility that lasted parts of two school years. The project involved renovation of the whole school, she said Friday. It wasnt just one section, it was the entire school. It was a very large undertaking but weve reaped the reward from it. The renovation brought the school into the modern era, especially regarding technology. Each classroom is now equipped with the latest, hightech teaching tools to further childhood education. Over the three decades teaching students, Speight has seen many changes in student education, changes designed to tailor individual learning for students to maximize their education. What weve seen a lot of is the amount of data that we actually analyze and use to really look at differentiated instruction, she said. Although its not new, it became a buzz word about mid-way through my career, and we started looking at how can we help individual students in ways of being able to diagnose what they need, as well as how See RETIRE / Page C2 Crystal River Primary School Principal Eddie Speight has spent the vast majority of her 33 years as an educator at the primary school, serving in various positions. At left, she encourages students last week in a class. At the end of the school year she will retire from her position. MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle National PTA seeks to reverse drop in membership Associated PressWhen Otha Thornton, president-elect of the National PTA, signed up to help lead the PTA at Marylands Meade Senior High School in 2005, the chapter had about 25 members. Within two years, membership soared to 400 as the school community mobilized to boost morale and academic performance. Now hes trying to rekindle that spirit on a larger scale as the PTA strives to reverse a steady decrease in its national membership. I tell parents: Other people are making choices for you and your children. We need you at the table, said Thornton, who will become the National PTAs first male African-American leader next year. By any measure, the PTA is one of the most venerable and iconic of Americas volunteer-based nonprofits. It was founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers and at its peak in the 1960s claimed about 12 million members. Membership plummeted in the late s and 1970s, in part because of the racial rifts caused by school desegregation, then stabilized. But it has dropped steadily over the past 10 years from about 6 million to under 5 million. Demography is part of the reason: Compared to the PTAs heyday, there are many more single parents and working mothers now who feel they cant spare extra time for engagement at their childrens schools. But the PTAs shrinkage cant be explained only by such factors, given that parents are active at tens of thousands of schools in independent parent-teacher organizations not affiliated with the PTA. Factors driving this trend include frustration with having to pay state and national PTA dues, and disenchantment with the PTAs role as a vocal advocate on such issues as charter schools, juvenile justice and home-schooling. Were still strong, but it is a concern, the current national president, Betsy Landers, said of the membership decline. Weve chosen to try to attack it in several different ways. One initiative involves expanded use of social media. Members are being kept up-to-date via podcasts on National PTA Radio, some meetings and training sessions are being conducted through Skype, and members with expertise as bloggers or tweeters are being recruited as social media ambassadors to enhance the PTAs online presence. Landers, of Germantown, Tenn., hopes these tactics will help cut costs while also enticing more parents to join. Were really trying to give our members the information they seek in a way they prefer, she said. Thornton, a retired Army colonel who now works as a senior analyst for General Dynamics in Georgia, said other membershipboosting strategies include encouraging urban parents to be more involved in their local schools, expanding outreach to rural schools, and training a new wave of leaders from minority groups. For Thornton, 44, his PTA mission is intertwined with his family history a Georgia family that refused to let borderline poverty derail the quest for college education. Education was a way out, Thornton said. When I had kids, it was very important for me to be involved and be sure they got the best education possible. While Thornton and Landers say the PTA needs to be creative with new membership strategies, See PTA / Page C2 Associated Press Gary Parkes, president of the PTA at Carmel Elementary School in Woodstock, Ga., said he and many other parents in the local organization would like to sever ties with the National PTA and become an independent parent-teacher organization, but had been told by the school district that this would not be allowed. Some parents want to form their own new organization

could we address it. This was not just for the students at risk, but it was for our high-achieving students as well. This was very challenging for some. She said the accountability is also something that has changed drastically since she began her career. The accountability now, even from the state, is much greater. Weve gone through No Child Left Behind. I think that accountability has helped us sharpen our saws as we look again at the data because were so datadriven. But I like to say were kid-driven because the data is about that student. She says her long-term employment as well as that of others with many years of experience employed at the school only serves to benefit the students. With the long-term teachers and employees here, we get to know the families, she said. As a matter of fact, I have children in the school of students that I taught. Its interesting to know that youve touched a whole family. While administrative changes have impacted Speight in her current position, she says expectations in the classroom have also been increased from years past. Look at kindergarten for instance, she said. When I first started teaching I think it was more about socialization and getting the children comfortable with other children in a classroom, learning. Today, we expect our kindergarteners to be able to read when they finish. She said technology has also taken over in the classroom to improve learning. The increased technology is a vast difference, she said. And the children are very different. They already have a lot of these technologies in their homes, cell phones, computers and electronics. They are very experienced with it. Its amazing how fast they learn to use it, she said of the high-tech equipment. She says that the increase in technology over the past few years is just the tip of the iceberg. Im not sure I can even imagine what the technology will look like in the next 10 to 20 years, simply because technology moves so fast, she said. We will see changes that students will be able to do so much more with technology. I think thats going to be one of the biggest changes looking forward. Speight says the school year and all it entails has given her little time to think about retirement. She admits that only in the last few weeks she has allowed herself to become excited about the prospect. Ive become more excited about it in the last month, as I realize its coming down, she said. Its been work all year. Just because Im going to retire, doesnt mean I am retired now. Its still work for me. But as I think about the future I am getting more excited. Speights replacement will be Donnie Brown, who is currently Lecanto Primary School principal. Great things are coming. Shell be a terrific leader for this school. One of the few people at Crystal River Primary School with more years of service at the school than Speight is guidance counselor Terry Cates. He has been with the school since 1975. Speight interned in Cates classroom before taking on a class alone. Cates says it doesnt shock him to see what she has achieved over her career. It doesnt surprise me at all, he said. I recall back then and she had the same kind of energy and enthusiasm and love for the kids that she has now. Thats not ever changed. I never cease to be amazed at the amount of energy that she brings to this job. Shes here early and stays really late at night. She has more energy than anybody else here. She goes all out.

Greenberg noted a physical exam is required prior to entering a prekindergarten program, but a more thorough vision or hearing screening would only occur if a teacher suspects a problem. I think their concerns are valid ones, said Alisa Ghazvini, a consultant for Floridas Association for Early Learning Coalitions, which helps oversee administration of the program. Floridas spending per child enrolled in prekindergarten was significantly below the nationwide average: $2,422 compared to $4,141 in the 2010-11 school year, the most current figure available in the report. In overall spending, Florida ranked 35 out of 39 states with an early learning program nationwide. In order for the state to meet the indicators NIEER recommends for a quality program, Florida would have to spend $4,464 per child, nearly double what it spends now. Florida was one of five states to meet fewer than five of the benchmarks. Nationwide, total state funding for prekindergarten programs has declined by nearly $60 million, the report found. In September, the Florida Board of Education set new standards for the states voluntary pre-kindergarten providers, requiring that 70 percent of students test as kindergarten ready on two exams. That change is expected to increase the number of providers considered low performing from 798 to 2,500, out of 6,384 pre-kindergarten providers statewide. Ghazvini said the effectiveness of that change will again come back to how much funding the state provides. In order for that provider to really improve the quality of their program theyre going to need some supports, and its just not clear how were really going to help those providers improve the quality of their programs, Ghazvini said. Also crucial, she said, is instituting an assessment when students enter a prekindergarten program, so that the state can better judge how effective a provider is. Pre-KContinued from Page C1 one change thats not in the cards is any backing away from the PTAs role as lobbyist on behalf of children and public schools. Among many causes over the years, it has campaigned for better nutrition in school cafeterias, fought to sustain arts programs, called for more empathetic treatment of juvenile offenders, and voiced wariness about school vouchers and for-profit charter schools. Advocacy is really the heart of what we do were seen as the go-to people on parent engagement, said Landers, whos been active in the PTA since 1989. She said the PTAs full-time lobbyists on Capitol Hill are reinforced by a vast network of members nationwide who, when mobilized by email, will contact their own members of Congress. Any association that takes a stand, there will always be some members who disagree, Landers said. Any stand we take is decided by membership ... Its not made by staff, not made in Washington. Its made by the grass roots. For some parents, however, the PTAs advocacy work is cause for annoyance rather than pride. I dont feel the PTAs mission and our mission are the same, said Gary Parkes, president of the PTA at Carmel Elementary School in Woodstock, Ga. Parents think theyre joining to be involved with the kids at their school, and theyre really becoming part of a massive political action committee. Annual dues are another source of disgruntlement. The individual dues for National PTA membership may seem modest they were increased last year, for the first time since 2001, from $1.75 to $2.25 but the total rises when state and district dues are added. I dont feel like we get anything from national or state to justify that expense, Parkes said. Parkes said he and many other parents at Carmel Elementary would like to sever ties with the National PTA and form an independent PTO, but were told by the school district that this would not be allowed. In Fairfax, Va., resentment over dues was a factor when the PTA at Woodson High School voted two years ago to disaffiliate with the national organization and become an independent PTO. Nell Hurley, who was president of the local PTA at the time, said the group had been paying about $3,000 a year in total PTA dues, and it just didnt seem like that was a real good use of our money. They sought to avoid any legal challenge, even hiring a parliamentarian to be on hand during the vote to disaffiliate. There was a time when we really needed the PTA that was how we got information, Hurley said. Now we have the Internet ... We can get all the information we need at our fingertips. For the Woodson parents, one consequence of severing ties with the National PTA was losing PTA-provided insurance. Hurley said the group was able to obtain a less costly policy from PTO Today, a private enterprise which provides an array of information and resource kits to parent groups. PTO Todays founder, Tim Sullivan, declined to release financial information, but said he started in 1999 as a one-man operation and now had 34 employees. Sullivan says the number and total membership of independent PTOs is hard to calculate, but he estimates that more than 85 percent of the nations nearly 100,000 public schools have some sort of parent-teacher group. About 25,000 of the schools have PTA affiliates.
