M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER On a warm Wednesday afternoon, Ozello neighbors Joanne Hopkins and Ginny Sorrell socialized before getting into the pool for water aerobics. About 20 others chatted among themselves on the deck at Bicentennial Pool, waiting for their exercises to begin. Hopkins comes to the pool three times a week for aerobics. Wednesday was Sorrells second visit and both friends love it. I didnt even know it was here and Ive lived in the area since 1984, Sorrell says of the countyowned pool at Bicentennial Park. And they are equally alarmed at the prospect of losing their water activity. Citrus County officials say programs such as 4-H, Coastal Region Library and wintertime Bicentennial Pool could be on the budget chopping block without a tax rate increase to pay for services. I think its a very bad idea, Hopkins said. This is a good place to be. Commissioners have an April 24 budget workshop scheduled where they hope the public will choose between cutting programs for increasing the tax rate for the county to bring in the same amount of money in 2013 as it did this year. Commissioner J.J. Kenney said he believes residents will choose a millage increase over losing their favorite programs. The people I have talked to have all indicated they would accept a millage increase rather than a cut in any services, Kenney said. In my mind I do not want to close anything. I would rather keep all the services going. County officials say C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe prospect of eliminating the county extension services to avoid a tax increase raised a quick reaction from 4-H members and supporters. They met to discuss ways to show how much 4-H means to them. I have taken on the role of advocating to save extension and 4-H, wrote Carolyn R. Quintanilla of Lecanto, who grew up in the 4-H program as a member of the Lecanto Levis club and whose children now are members. Quintanillas e-mail message went out to about 18 4-H clubs in Citrus County. The extension employees cannot advocate for themselves, Quintanilla continued. So it will be up to the community to rally support. 4-H teaches youngsters life skills development in ways that are interesting enough to capture the attention of the young people and keep them coming back. Those who received Quintanillas email 4-H leaders, assistant leaders, parents and members were eager to meet to find ways to show the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) what 4-H means to them and why they want to save it from the chopping block. The clubs met Friday at Whispering Pines Park in Inverness, where the Chronicle spoke to some members. Victoria Hedberg, 17, of Crystal River, a junior at Crystal River High School, is vice president and secretary of the Lecanto Outlaws 4-H club, where she has been a member for four years. Her grandfather raises beef cattle on his farm. What about doing away with 4-H? It would be really bad for this county because INSIDE APRIL 16, 2012 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 117 ISSUE 253 50 CITRUS COUNTY 2-5-6-3: League-leading Dodgers turn triple play vs. Padres /B2 LOCAL NEWS: Fundraiser CREST students craft bracelets to help buy the school playground equipment./ Page A3 LOCAL NEWS: Home burnsA homeowners dogs dies when the home burns Saturday in Hernando./ Page A4www.chronicleonline.com NATIONAL NEWS: Deadly stormResidents dig out after tornadoes hit the Midwest./ Page A12 INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial..................A10 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B8 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Are you willing to pay about $50 more a year to avoid cuts in county government services?

The bad news is you still must file taxes. Traditionally, taxes must be filed by April 15. But this year April 15 fell on a Sunday, and April 16 is a holiday in Washington, D.C, called Emancipation Day, observed for when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act in 1862. As the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) treats Emancipation Day as a federal holiday, the deadline to file income taxes had to be put back to April 17. Tuesday is the day when all 2011 federal income tax returns, payments or extension requests must be made. According to the IRS, 98.9 million people already have filed. Those who havent will avoid late-filing penalties if they file either their income tax return or a request for a tax-filing extension by midnight Tuesday. The late-filing penalty, normally 5 percent per month based on the unpaid balance, applies to returns filed after the deadline. Taxpayers should file, even if they cant pay the full amount due. Any payment made by April 17 will reduce or eliminate interest and late-payment penalties that apply to ON THE NET IRS: irs.gov Associated Press This two-photo combination image shows, at top, a Feb. 11, 2005, file photo of trays of printed socialsecurity checks waiting to be mailed from the U.S. Treasurys Financial Management services facility in Philadelphia, and an undated photo provided by the Treasury Department of a Direct Express Card. Starting next year, the check will no longer be put in the mail to millions of Americans who receive SocialSecurity and other government benefits. No more checks in 2013 Dont wait for Social Security payment to come via mail S TEPHEN O HLEMACHER Associated PressWASHINGTON Starting next year, the check will no longer be in the mail for millions of people who receive Social Security and other government benefits. The federal government, which issues 73 million payments a month, is phasing out paper checks for all benefit programs, requiring people to get payments electronically, either through direct deposit or a debit card for those without a bank account. The changes will affect people who get Social Security, veterans benefits, railroad pensions and federal disability payments. Tax refunds are exempt, but the Internal Revenue Service encourages taxpayers to get refunds electronically by processing those refunds faster than paper checks. About 90 percent of people who receive federal benefits already get their payments electronically, the Treasury Department says. New beneficiaries were required to get payments electronically starting last year, and with a few exceptions, the rest will have to make the switch by March 2013. Its just that natural progression of moving to how people are used to receiving their funds, said Walt Henderson, director of the Treasury Departments electronic funds transfer division.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER City officials have unveiled a broad outline of their fiveyear general fund budget projections and one thing remains constant property taxes will remain at 3.8 mills, the rollback rate. A mill is equal to $1 of tax for each $1,000 of assessment. During a workshop earlier in the week, City Manager Andy Houston revealed property values have dropped five percent in the past year and the same value is projected through 2017. The economy is still not where we thought it would be by now, Houston said. He said despite disappointment with the rate of the recovery and reduced revenues, city residents can expect the same level of services from officials. We are not expecting to cut any of our services. We may delay or adjust a couple of our projects, but that is something we have yet to identify, Houston said. He said the city has not increased sewer or water rates in three years, but may or may not have to look at a slight rate increase. Nothing is clear yet, but even if we increase those rates it will be pretty minor, he said. Houston said, next year, the city will conduct a rate study when the new sewer line customers come on board. The citys 2012 expenditure budget is $4,199.506, but the revenue budget is $4,105,790 with a $93,716 difference. Houston said any shortfall could be plugged with the transfer of general fund reserve funds into the capital improvement projects funds. Andy Houston Crystal River city manager.

they try to get the youth more involved in things, but if they are going to take away something that is a big part of our county, how are we supposed to be involved? Victoria asked. Shutting down the extension services and 4-H would greatly impact the annual Citrus County Fair. Its a big part of the fair, Victoria said. If they took 4H away, the fair would just be a carnival. I think thats boring because I enjoy the showing part and working with animals. Victoria shows steers and heifers at the fair. After she graduates, she plans to attend the University of Florida, where she might major in an agriculturerelated field. Victorias father, Buck Hedburg, said he would attend the next budget hearing April 24. My whole family will be there, Hedburg said. I just want to know why do away with 4-H? Its really upsetting. Its a big part of Citrus County, Victoria said. Chrissy Uzar, 18, a home-school student who is a member of Floral City Team Green 4-H club, has been in 4-H for 11 years, starting with its youngest group, Cloverbuds, comprised of the younger brothers and sisters of the Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors. This will be her last year as a 4-H member. Chrissy has gone to the county fair every year since she has been in 4-H and entered everything from a steer to a rabbit. I have entered arts and crafts and pictures into the Youth World, which is actually what I plan on getting involved in this coming up year, Chrissy said. Id like to improve that at the fair, because its my favorite part of the fair. 4-H-ers work on many community service projects. We do a petting zoo for the Floral City Heritage Days and weve done a lot of horse shows and parades, Chrissy said. Weve made Christmas cards and sent them over to the soldiers and to people in nursing homes. Asked about her reaction to the potential elimination of 4-H, Chrissy said: I was very disappointed to hear that because I would say the IFAS (extension services) and 4-H, other than school, is like the main part of learning, and teaching the youth, our future, important things, such as raising animals, keeping records of things and being involved in the community and if they cut that, what are a lot of the kids going to be doing? Us homeschoolers rely on 4-H for a lot of activity and meeting new people. Peter Uzar, 14, and an eight-year member of 4-H, has made the most of 4-H programs, showing all types of livestock. I recently did a steer a month ago (at the county fair), Peter said. I got reserve grand champion. Learning that 4-H might get cut hit him hard. I was mad, very mad. Upset, Peter said. This is like my life! Theyre trying to cut it off. Patricia Uzar, their mother, leader of Floral City Team Green, said she had been involved in 4-H since 1972. I want to see this program continue, Uzar said. 4-H teaches youngsters to take responsibility for projects and complete them, such as raising livestock. They learn social skills with livestock showing, presenting a demonstration to show how something is done and taking part in the annual 4H Tropicana Public Speaking Contest. In addition, 4-H sponsors many types of camps. With the clubs, the 4-H Foundation has a curriculum for any interest project a club would want to pursue. Just about any subject from sewing to green technology can become a project. 4-H also helps youngsters learn about the governing process. Seniors can go to 4H Congress in Tallahassee and learn about legislature by doing it themselves with a mock government.

It is one of several recommendations for budget cuts the commissioners will consider, along with saving programs by increasing the millage to pay for them. Residents say closing the pool would be a mistake. I think it would be terrible, Lorna Mangold of Homosassa said. There are lots of people who use this pool all the time. Mangold pays about $12 for a six-month pass. She and others say they would pay more if it meant saving the pool. The pool pass is efficient too efficient, Mike Babcock, who lives near Dunnellon, said. They could double it, triple it even. Babcock, a retired maintenance supervisor with the Michigan Department of Corrections, said pool exercises have helped his back injury. When I came down here I was pretty much hunched over and had to use a cane, he said. The pool is great for arthritis. I can pretty much walk upright and dont use a cane anymore. Residents say the pool doesnt get enough use. We need more people to participate in this pool, Babcock said. This is a terrific service. In the 2010-11 fiscal year, from Oct. 1 through Sept. 31, officials said users visited the pool 41,059 times. From January to March this year, about 6,700 people used the pool. The average visit in March was 108 per day, county spokeswoman Lindsay Ubinas said. Babcock and a friend, Sharon Schiffer, plan to attend the countys budget workshop April 24. Apparently, they are not the only ones. Faced with numerous emails and phone calls, county commissioners are expected this week to move the 5 p.m. April 24 workshop from the courthouse to the Citrus County Auditorium to handle the crowd. Schiffer, who lives in Beverly Hills, said the pool has become a place to meet new friends. She agreed with Babcock, however, it is under used. When you hear people who have been coming here for years saying this is the best kept secret in Citrus County, she said, thats a problem.

S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE I n 1999, Destinys Child sang, Say my name, say my name. To that I say, I would if I could remember it. The truth is, I am terrible at remembering names, sometimes even the names of people Ive known for years. I mean, after three years of talking to someone, I cant just all of a sudden ask, What did you say your name was? Its embarrassing and I feel Im disrespectful when I cant remember their names. I know Im not alone either. A Google search of how to remember names called up 955,000 results. Its a common source of woe for lots of people maybe even you. Fortunately, I recently remembered the name of a local memory expert, Joe Ponds of a program called Memory College. Hes also the pastor of Citrus Ridge Bible Church in Beverly Hills. I met Dr. Ponds in 2002 when he was introducing a scripture memory program at his church. ( Note: He will offer a similar program at 6:15 p.m. Sunday, May 6, at Riverside Christian Fellowship on State Road 200 in Hernando.) Back then, when he introduced himself he said, Ponds, P-O-N-DS. Its spelled like the cold cream without an apostrophe. Ive never forgotten his name. However, I do forget almost everyone elses, so I made an appointment to see Ponds last week to ask him for some tips to improve my memory, at least when it comes to remembering names. He admitted at one time he, too, forgot peoples names seconds after he was introduced. Then when he was in the Coast Guard, he served as protocol officer to the commandant, a four-star admiral, who entertained lots of important people at receptions. Ponds job was to greet the people coming in and whisper their names to the admirals aide, who would whisper it to the admiral so he could act like, of course, he knew who these people were Ponds had to get the names right. He got himself a memory isometrics book and taught himself how to remember things lists and passages in books and facts and numbers. He could sit through a lecture and not take notes yet still remember what the speaker said. He has since developed courses, classes and seminars that hes taught all over the place. His The Right Stuff Project has been used at the University of Central Florida. Currently, he is working on a memory skills conference with Jon Keith The Memory Trainer this summer at a Disneyworld resort, mainly for teachers so they can train their students to remember stuff. Ponds graciously agreed to give me a quick crash course in remembering peoples names. It can be condensed into five steps: Hear it As Ponds said, you cant remember what you dont hear, so make sure when people tell you their names you pay attention. Ask them to repeat it if you need to and then say it out loud so you make sure you have it correct. Spell it Amy, is that A-M-Y? Oh, its A-I-M-E-E. That gives you another opportunity to make sure you heard it correctly and imprints the name in your brain. Comment on it Mathilda, is that a family name? Kennedy are you related to the Kennedys of Massachusetts? Again, you want to use the persons name and attempt to associate it with something that will help you remember it. The reason I remember Joe Ponds name is the bit about the cold cream. Use it When appropriate, use the name in your conversation. Its a sneaky form of repetition. Say it as youre leaving Once again, youre imprinting it on your brain, plus it will make people feel like youre interested in them. Ponds said the most important memory tip is simple: Pay attention. When you meet someone, dont think about who else is in the room or what youre going to fix for dinner or whats next on your to-do list. That goes for remembering where you parked your car and where you put your keys, too. Slow down, take your time, observe details of your surroundings. Keep your keys in the same place every day, park in the same row at the market. Write things down. Use mnemonics to remember lists (HOMES to remember the names of the Great Lakes Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior). To contact Joe Ponds, email him at drjoe@memorycollege.com, call 352-746-1068 or visit www. memorycollege.com. Is there stuff you want to know about? Have stuff you think people should know? Email your ideas to nkennedy@chronicle online.com for consideration. Glad to meet you what was your name? Nancy Kennedy STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCitrus County Sheriffs Office investigators are employing a new tack to cleanse county corner store shelves of a oncelegitimate cluster of drugs. The synthetic cannabinoids known variously as K2, Spice Gold and bath salts are now illicit in Florida. Possession of the items can bring a felony charge. However, instead of raiding stores that sold the deadly, noxious drugs and arresting the sellers, CCSO personnel are making it a teachable moment. Initially, patrol, the Tactical Impact Unit, as well as other facets of the agency went out to inform the stores about the newest law and the illegalities, Tactical Impact Unit Sgt. Justin Ferrara said. The majority of the stores (was) extremely forthcoming with the products and had lots of questions, but in the end easily turned over to our agency these items they believed were in violation. I think the shock of the law being newly enacted was the biggest hurdle, but each store was provided with documentation to answer many of their questions, Ferrara added. The Florida Legislature passed a law banning the drugs and the governor signed it March 23. Ferrara said the law bans more than 90 different chemicals used in the manufacture of the spraylike material used on the incense-like faux marijuana and other products which are marked clearly not for consumption. But, consume is what many, especially young people, have done. And it becomes highly addictive. The substance got national attention when Hollywood actress Demi Moore was reported to have smoked the same incense-type drug before suffering seizures and being hospitalized earlier in the year. Ferrara said the drugs previously called legal marijuana can cause hallucination, paranoia and temporary psychosis. The road to the new laws has been difficult. Drug manufacturers have been involved in a cat-and-mouse game with law enforcement, which has been at the forefront of advocacy to ban the chemicals. Officials said each time they came up with a host of chemicals to ban, manufacturers find new ones to replace them with. Since there is so much money to (be) made, they are going to create new formulations of similar products not restricted, Ferrara said. The lawmakers are already aware of this and are trying to create new legislation which will hit these items. The dreadful truth is the companies will create new products not being regulated and they will hit the shelves, he added. Ferrara also fears the role of the Internet for addicts and sellers in trying to get around the law. He urges parents and friends of addicts to be vigilant and look for signs. If they (kids or even adults) are caught smoking anything that is not a cigarette or cigar, it is a good sign for parents to look out for. Ferrara said. The packaging could say glass cleaner, plant food or a variety of other things, but these items are normally sold is small quantities, like a gram or two. They will also have a variety of different names associated with them, but in small quantities. The example of glass cleaner was sold in a small thimble-like vial in powder form, which clearly was not any form of glass cleaner. He said now that law enforcement has made the rounds to every store in the county and conducted educational sessions, they will give it time and return to see what has changed. The sale of these items is a felony, the possession of more than 3 grams is a felony and the possession of any powder form of these items is a felony, Ferrara said. If someone possess less than 3 grams of these items, it is a misdemeanor. The one good thing is that when someone smokes these items out of a pipe or a bong, that is not considered paraphernalia which could result in an additional charge. Store owners learn of drugs now banned Businesses given chance to turn in illegal items The majority of the stores (was) extremely forthcoming. Sgt. Justin Ferrara Tactical Impact Unit. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterLECANTO For students at CREST Citrus Resource for Exceptional Students in Transition a playground is more than just a place to play. For the mentally and physically challenged children whose ages range from babies to 22-year-old young adults, the playground is a big part of their therapy and education, helping them learn social skills and how to interact appropriately with other people. However, for years, the playground has been inadequate. For the past two years, the school has been actively fundraising toward their goal of $296,000 for their ultimate dream playground. Weve spent two years working on this, but this year were more organized and focused, said Kelly Daugherty, a teacher who works with students ages 16 to 18. They have sold Yankee candles and had two spaghetti dinners at the American Legion Post 155 in Crystal River. Their most recent project, which involves the students, is making and selling bracelets. Made from soda can pop tops and grosgrain ribbon or beads strung on leather strips, CREST brought in $750 from donations for two days at the Manatee Festival. Aside from the much-needed money for playground equipment, making the bracelets gives students the opportunity to contribute. One day last week, 19-year-old Alyssa Ritchey strung beads. A CREST transition student who works a half-day in the community, she spends her afternoons at the school. Were making bracelets, she said. I do a little (bead) and a big one and a little one. Meanwhile, students Heather Schurick and Michael Stephens sorted and counted pop tops 26 for one size, between 31 and 35 for larger sizes and 18 to 25 for childrens sizes. They pressed down any sharp edges on the top tops and put them in sandwich bags. Daugherty said they have gotten pop tops donated from area schools and even a man from Clearwater whom they met while selling the bracelets at the Manatee Festival. Also, a Spring Hill couple, who makes and sells bracelets of their own, donate a dollar from each bracelet they sell to the CREST playground project. So far, the school has raised $16,307. Crystal River Rotary and Kings Bay Rotary wrote a grant for us for $5,000 for five new swings that are already up, Daugherty said. She said several organizations in the community have offered their support, which is much appreciated. To look at the big lump sum we need, its an overwhelming number, she said.

Meadowcrest Blvd. Crystal River, FL 34429 Blvd. Hernando home lost to flames C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterA house at 7105 N. Comanche Terrace, Hernando, was lost Saturday to a fire. Owner Blu F. Allred and his family were not at home when the fire broke out at the rural residence. According to the incident report, at 4:27 p.m. Citrus County Fire Rescue was called to respond to a possible brush fire in the area of East Grantham Court and East Turkey Trail in Hernando, where the structure fire was discovered instead. Engine 131 from Beverly Hills arrived on scene at 4:46 p.m. to find a 1,400-square-foot single-family dwelling engulfed in flames. Because of the extent of the fire, a defensive strategy was advised. A tanker shuttle was used to supply water for extinguishment because of the lack of hydrants in the neighborhood. In all, six engines, three tankers, one squad and the battalion chief were assigned to the incident. The fire was brought under control at 5:07 p.m. The state fire marshal went to the scene to investigate the cause of the fire, which he declared unintentional. Damage to the house and contents was estimated at $145,000. The house was insured. American Red Cross has assisted the family.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916.

payments made after that date. The current interest rate is 3 percent per year, compounded daily, and the late-payment penalty is normally 0.5 percent per month. Whether paying tax in full or in part, the fastest and easiest way to do so is by using one of the electronic payment options. E-pay options include: Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) This free service gives taxpayers a safe and convenient way to pay individual and business taxes by phone or online. To enroll or for information, call 800-316-6541 or visit www.eftps.gov. Electronic funds withdrawal. E-file and e-pay in a single step. Credit or debit card. Both paper and electronic filers can pay their taxes by phone or online through any of several authorized credit and debit card processors. Though the IRS does not charge a fee for this service, the card processors do. For taxpayers who itemize their deductions, these convenience fees can be claimed on Schedule A Line 23. The U.S. Postal Service offers advice for tax filers to make the deadline. Post offices will be open regular hours. Customers can enter their ZIP code to find the hours of operation for their local post office on usps.com at https://tools.usps.com/ go/POLocatorAction_input or by calling 800-ASK-USPS. The IRS accepts the FirstClass postmark as proof of filing by April 17. The Postal Service offers flexible products and services for use when mailing federal and/or state returns. These mailing options apply a postmark to returns: Express Mail Service: Tax returns can be delivered to many locations the next day guaranteed or money back. Express Mail includes online tracking and signature at delivery. Priority Mail Service: Tax returns are delivered in an average of two to three days. First-Class Mail Service: First-Class Mail is a quick, reliable and economical way to mail returns. Using proof of mailing services provides peace of mind and proof that a tax return was mailed, verify that it was delivered, or both. Certificate of Mailing Service: Provides a receipt as evidence that the tax return was mailed. Certified Mail Service: A Certified Mail receipt proves the tax return was mailed and gives online access to verify the date and time of delivery. Return Receipt: This receipt verifies both mailing and delivery, returning a postcard signed by the person who received the tax return. The Postal Service provides these tips for income tax filers mailing returns: If filing on April 17, mail early in the day at any Post Office. Be sure to verify Post Office hours of operation. If depositing returns in a collection box on April 17, double-check the pickup schedule on the collection box. To ensure getting the April 17 postmark, deposit returns before the last scheduled pickup time. Affix the correct postage. Some returns include many forms and require additional postage. IRS does not pay postage due and will return items to sender. When possible, use the envelope provided by the IRS and be sure to include a return address. If the envelope provided by the IRS is unavailable, be sure to verify the IRS address where returns should be mailed. Those who cant file by midnight Tuesday may qualify for one of several relief programs, including those recently expanded under the IRS Fresh Start initiative. These include the following: Most people can set up a payment agreement with the IRS online in a matter of minutes. Those who owe $50,000 or less in combined tax, penalties and interest can use the online payment agreement to set up a monthly payment agreement for up to six years. Taxpayers can choose this option even if they have not yet received a bill or notice from the IRS. Alternatively, taxpayers can request a payment agreement by filing Form 9465-FS. This form can be downloaded from irs.gov and mailed along with a tax return, bill or notice. Most unemployed filers and self-employed individuals whose business income dropped substantially can apply for a six-month extension of time to pay. Eligible taxpayers will not be charged a late-payment penalty if they pay any tax, penalty and interest due by Oct. 15, 2012. Taxpayers qualify if they were unemployed for any 30-day period between Jan. 1, 2011, and April 17, 2012. Self-employed people qualify if their business income declined 25 percent or more in 2011, due to the economy. Income limits and other special rules apply. Apply using Form 1127-A. Some struggling taxpayers may qualify for an offerin-compromise. This is an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS that settles the taxpayers tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed. Generally, an offer will not be accepted if the IRS believes the liability can be paid in full as a lump sum or through a payment agreement. The IRS looks at the taxpayers income and assets to make a determination regarding the taxpayers ability to pay. Details on all filing and payment options are on irs.gov.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916.

But that doesnt matter to either party. Their efforts, including a Senate vote Monday on President Barack Obamas Buffett rule proposal to impose a minimum tax on the wealthiest Americans, are more about pontificating than legislating, aimed at voters in Novembers congressional and presidential elections. Neutral economists say neither bill would do much for the economy or job creation. Some political professionals are equally unimpressed with their potential impact on voters. Undaunted, congressional leaders hope to maximize public attention by timing both roll calls with an eye to Tuesday, the annual deadline for filing income taxes with the Internal Revenue Service. Senate Democrats later this year may hold additional votes tied to the Buffett rule, using his idea of a minimum 30 percent tax on top earners to raise money for proposal to create jobs and keep student loan rates from rising. With trillions in tax cuts dating from President George W. Bush set to expire in January, House and Senate leaders are considering campaign-season votes on extending popular parts of those reductions, such as preventing the $1,000 child tax credit from being cut in half. In addition, Obama and his allbut-certain GOP opponent, Mitt Romney, will spend much of the campaign promoting their tax blueprints as antidotes to an economy still struggling to generate jobs. Besides raising taxes on the wealthy, Obama would boost levies on many U.S. companies that do business overseas, and on the oil and gas industry. The new money would help lower individual and corporate rates and reduce federal deficits. Romney would continue all Bush tax cuts, including those for the richest people, while trimming rates and eliminating estate taxes. If this were a heavyweight fight, were still in the first round where both sides are kind of feeling each other out, Republican consultant Mike McKenna said about the votes in the week ahead. On Monday, as Congress returns from a two-week spring break, the Democratic-led Senate expect votes on a Buffett rule measure by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I. It would slap a minimum 30 percent income tax on people making more than $2 million yearly and phase in higher taxes for those earning at least $1 million. Republicans are sure to block the bill, nicknamed for billionaire Warren Buffett, who backs higher taxes on the rich.

Associated PressWASHINGTON A Secret Service scandal involving prostitutes in Colombia that has overshadowed President Barack Obamas diplomatic mission in Latin American probably isnt an isolated incident, and the agency should ensure it doesnt happen again, a leading House Republican said Sunday California Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of a House investigative panel, said he wasnt certain whether Congress would conduct hearings on the misconduct. But lawmakers will be looking over the shoulder of the Secret Service, he said, to make sure that the agencys method for training and screening agents isnt endangering the nations VIPs. Things like this dont happen once if they didnt happen before, said Issa, who leads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Eleven Secret Service employees are on administrative leave for misconduct and five service members assigned to work with the agency are confined to quarters amid allegations that a group of personnel partied with prostitutes before Obama arrived in Colombia for the weekend summit with Latin American leaders. Issa spoke on CBS Face the Nation. Henderson said electronic payments are safer and more efficient than paper checks; in 2010, more than 540,000 federal benefit checks were reported lost or stolen. The switch will save the government about $120 million a year. Social Security will save $1 billion over the next decade, according to the Treasury Department. You think of that paper check floating out there in the delivery system, with personal information on it, its much more susceptible to fraud versus an electronic payment, Henderson said. Advocates for seniors say they understand the governments desire to cut costs and take advantage of technologies that most workers already use. The food stamp program switched from paper coupons to debit cards in 2004. But they have raised concerns about requiring the switch for older retirees who may not be used to electronic payments. This will affect some very frail elderly people who are living by themselves, many of them, and doing well, but usually within the context of that old paper check that they deposit in the bank, said Web Phillips, a senior policy advisor for the National Committee to Protect Social Security and Medicare. The change has to be handled carefully and with a lot of sensitivity so that there arent people who lose track of a payment or dont understand that they have a card that came in the mail thats the source of their payment, Phillips said. Thats our concern. The switch is mandated by a Treasury rule issued in December 2010. Since then, the department has worked to educate the public. The government has created a website, www.GoDirect.org and a toll-free phone number, 1800-333-1795, people can call for assistance. Treasury acknowledges they have a lot of education to do for people about how these things work, said David Certner, legislative policy director for AARP Were a bit concerned about how easy its going to be to provide education, particularly for some in this older population who are not familiar with debit cards and dont have bank accounts. Certner said AARP wants the government to make it easier to get an exemption. Under the Treasury rule, current beneficiaries who are 90 and older wont be required to make the switch. People can get a waiver if using a debit card would impose a hardship, but the Treasury Department says those would be extreme, rare circumstances. These waivers are not well publicized on the governments website. There are several million people who receive paper checks today, Certner said. Some of them do it because they have worked out arrangements for them that work. AARP also has concerns about fees associated with the debit cards. The Direct Express cards are issued by Comerica Bank, Treasurys financial agent. Each month, benefit payments are added to the cards, which can be used to make purchases or withdraw cash from ATMs. There are no fees for using the debit card to make purchases. They can be used at any retailer that accepts MasterCard debit cards. If a card is lost or stolen, the beneficiary is protected from unauthorized use as long as the missing card is reported promptly. Cardholders can make one free ATM withdrawal each time a payment is registered in the card. Subsequent withdrawals will cost 90 cents each, and all withdrawals may be subject to fees by the owner of the ATM. The governments switch to electronic payments also comes with a side effect: less business for the U.S. Postal Service, an agency that is already facing big budget problems with the rise of email and electronic bill paying. The private sector has been migrating to electronic payments for years, costing the Postal Service millions of customers, said Alan Robinson, editor of the Postal Journal, a trade publication. Normally, these things happen one customer at a time, Robinson said. In terms of payments, this is probably one of the largest. Samuel Cernek, 85HOMOSASSA Samuel B.

After ad valorem taxes, franchise fees are the second largest source of funds for the city. The five-year-outlook for the citys budget includes reductions to less than $4 million for 2013 and 2014. Estimates put the budget higher than $4 million toward the end of the fiveyear plan when officials expect the economy to be on a more solid footing. Another budget workshop is expected in late May. Following the workshops, Houston expects to present final 2012 budget to the City Council for deliberation and adoption. Chronicle reporter A.B.

Dont toss PittsI was reeling with negative emotion when I read a letter to the editor of March 31 titled No more Pitts. This is Sally (Van Osdell)s opinion, and she has every right to her opinion, as do I. Mr. Leonard Pitts Jr. is a 2004 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. He also received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, The American Society of Newspaper Editors and holds a bachelors degree in English from the University of Southern California. I, for one, have followed his commentary. Yes, Mr. Pitts is a politically aggressive black commentator and, through his voice, helps to spread understanding from his world, the world of people of color. I, for one, look forward to reading his views. Although I may not always agree, Mr. Pitts provides historic knowledge based on empirical research. I find it very rude to criticize the Chronicle for printing Mr. Pitts articles weekly and requesting they no longer be printed. In Sallys mind, the Chronicle has stooped to this level what level exactly is that, I wonder? The literary nation must stoop to the same level of the Chronicle as Mr. Pitts is a nationally syndicated commentator. When I moved here, I was very pleased to continue to follow Mr. Pitts voice. It is a free world, as far as I understand, and just because one, two or a small group decides they do not want to see his columns seems unjust to those who enjoy a variety of educated viewpoints from all walks of life. If you dont like it, dont read it; its really as simple as that. Now get on with your life and open your mind; you just might learn something. Carol Herndon Citrus Hills Health questions The mandate already exists. The opponents of the Affordable Care Act argue Congress is overstepping its constitutional authority by mandating a penalty or tax on the person who chooses not to be involved in the commercial transaction (in this case rejecting health insurance), and Congress can do almost anything it wants if this is allowed to pass. What, then, is the distinction between the hidden tax on all paying health insureds due to the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) passed by Congress in 1986? An example is the projected cost in one state of $1,186 per family to subsidize this provision that guarantees treatment for the uninsured. The Kaiser foundation has determined $40.7 billion is uncompensated under Medicare and Medicaid expenses for hospitals. While we may not see an actual tax levy for this expense, those costs are borne by the U.S. taxpayers indirectly through increased hospital charges, medical supplies and doctor fees. It seems to me the hidden costs I currently pay for the benefit of those uninsureds are tantamount to a mandate or tax already! My questions are very basic: No. 1: Why not let the people who actually receive medical services be required to pay for them rather than transfer that cost to taxpayers who pay for their own health plan? No. 2: Why is it unconstitutional to require individuals who wish not to have insurance pay a fee while yet it is constitutional to require me to pay their fee for them? Don Slough Inverness The good old days Donald Holcombs letter in the Chronicle Whose morals? (March 23), was an exaggeration to the Nth degree as to how academics, liberals and progressives think and act concerning moral values. Assuming when Holcomb refers to traditional moral values being cast in stone he is referring to Moses and the Ten Commandments. These rules were written thousands of years ago. If, in fact, Holcomb is going back to the days of the Old Testament, then I must assume he accepts slavery, killing children if they disobey their elders, selling your children in order to pay debts and making war against innocent victims. Yup, those were the good old days of traditional moral values. Today there are 6.5 billion people in the world. More than half the worlds population has never heard of the Christian Bible, and yet these countries have developed ethical systems and religions. So where does morality come from for nations that are not Christians or believe in God? Two places: evolution and secular reasoning. Scientists studying our primate relatives, such as chimpanzees, see evolutionary rudiments of morality; behaviors that look like sympathy, moral disapproval, sharing and altruism. This is exactly what we would expect if human morality, like many other behaviors, is built partly on the genes of our ancestors. Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith once wrote, The modern conservative is engaged in one of mans oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. L.M. Eastman Lecanto Big oil controls cost I have been reading all the Sound Offs and the editorial page with some people giving their opinion about who is responsible for the rising gas prices. The president cannot control gas prices, nor can the government. When the price of a barrel of oil goes up, the oil companies have to raise the price of gasoline to the dealer. I know because my husband and I had a station in Alabama, then moved to Florida, had one in Clearwater, Largo and Dunedin. When we bought gas at a low price and the oil company called to tell us to go up on the price, we made a few cents, then when we bought it at a high price, they would call and tell us to lower the price, we lost money. So all these people who seem to know what is going on in our country with the high prices, they are mistaken, because I know. We were in that business for more than 35 years. I hope this is read by everyone. The oil companies put the price on gas, period. You wouldnt expect them to deliberately lose money. A lot of people have stock in the oil companies and depend on those checks. Betty L. Smith Homosassa Dress modestly Regarding the front page of the Citrus County Chronicle on March 31, 2012. Whats wrong with this picture (This was a Fair photo)?Moms, do you notice how your young ladies dress? Come on moms, show your girls how to dress modestly. Just because you see others dress immodestly, moms, do your girls need to dress like them? Our blessed mother shows us how to dress. Cover our bodies properly and be good examples for other young ladies. Call the different clothing stores, tell them we want modest dress. We are not sex objects. Notice all types of advertising (in which) they use pictures of immodest clothing or very scantily-dressed women. This is wrong. We want respect. We dont want to be noticed for what we wear, but on our character. Come on, moms and grandmas; show our girls how to dress by our example, too. It starts at home. Shirley Saitta Dunnellon Facts are correct Sound Off today (Easter Sunday) the Hot Corner covered gas prices. One caller mentioned me by name and said he would like to know where I was buying gas at $1.80 per gallon in 2008, because he was paying $3.95 per gallon at that time and said I should get my facts straight. I randomly pulled some past receipts. (On) August 25, 2008, I paid $49.64 to fill up at the local QuikMart. (On) July 22, 2009, I paid $46.47 to fill up at the Fruitville Texaco in Sarasota. (On) March 23, 2010, I paid $44.60 to fill up at Cumberland Farms. Last week at Cumberland Farms, I paid over $110 to fill up. In all cases, I fill up when theres about one-eighth of a tank left, so these numbers are relative. So to the caller who didnt have the courage to write a letter and give their name, I suggest you pull some of your old fuel receipts and dont make yourself look foolish by making incorrect statements. As to respect for Obama, respect must be earned, not merely handed out. Respect at all levels of life can only be earned and Barack Obama sure has fallen short of that. I travel to Europe several times each year and Argentina once a year Obama is looked upon as a joke there. You may have your opinion, but please dont state your opinion as if everyone must agree. It doesnt work that way. As to whether I know what I am talking about, I was in upper management (inventory control) of a huge petrochemical company during the so-called Arab Oil Embargo of the early 1970s. We got our feedstocks from the same place the petroleum companies get theirs, so please dont preach to the choir. Next time you wish to voice your comments, concerns etc., have the backbone to write a letter and sign your name. Nobody is going to attack you if you do, but if you do not, your comments cannot really be taken seriously.Harry Cooper Hernando O PINION C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, A PRIL 16, 2012 A9 Citrus County now has Single Stream Recycling R R R E E E C C C Y Y Y C C C L L L I I I N N N G G G D D D R R R O O O P P P O O O F F F F F F Please Please NO garbage NO garbage or trash or trash T h a n k Y o u f o r R e c y c l i n g 000ANU1 It takes less work to do the right thing!

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2012 Jobs in Citrus I would suggest focusing your (County Commission) time and energy on the right issues, and that would be creating jobs for local people right here and now. You will not have to worry about the children and Sheriffs (Office) affairs if the parents wont be able to feed them. In case you dont know this, if the Port of Citrus happens, it will take years before it generates any amount of jobs, much too late for the children and parents. It takes more than a port to put people to work. It also takes the communitys confidence and trust the right thing is being done for the public. Getting involved in the sheriffs (Office)s politics does not make one private sector job. Scott Adams Inverness Autism diagnosis The New York Timesand the Citrus County Chronicle recently carried an article related to the complicated problem of the diagnosing of autism, which has doubled in the past four years. Army Willingham, author of a book on autism, said That so far no blood test, brain scan, physiological mutations or gene variants can definitively identity what causes it. And many experts would stipulate there are cognitive links of behavior between the brain and behavior. Some autism behavior now given include: schizoid-type thinking, compulsive behavior, being verbose, non communicative, repetitious motions, etc. The group responsible for modifiying the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV is considering changing the 2,027 descriptive behaviors now used to describe the problem to just 11. However, all writers would indicate all children, whether diagnosed with ADS or not, have gaps, i.e., at times and in certain circumstances behavior in ways that present a problem to the environment in which they live. More and more it appears that mental health professionals may be considering the growing up, and even later-life developmental processes, as being responsible for what is sometimes referred to as autism. Putting a diagnostic label on a child should be done with extreme caution for that matter, attempting to call anyone by names of any kind, whether related to their personality and/or behavior should be avoided (except for professional understanding). The important component in interpersonal living is to not find fault, but to find positive personality concepts. If a person has a gap, i.e., behavioral flaw, difficulty or nuance there should be an to attempt to understand what developmental circumstances has led to that alleged deviant behavior, accept that as who he/she is and to assist that person in insightfully over coming it. One who does this might just be diagnosed as a friend. William C. Young Crystal River M ARTIND YCKMAN Guest columnist I f the underlying issue werent so serious, it would be great fun watching the Republicans spin on a dime to become passionate defenders of an independent judiciary. Scorn for activist judges has been a staple of the partys playbook ever since it was Earl Warrens Supreme Court. Now that its John Robertss court or should we say Antonin Scalias? and a Democratic president is calling them out, the rhetorical roles have reversed overnight. Wasnt it just a month or so ago Newt Gingrich was proposing to ignore decisions he didnt like and arrest judges who refused to explain them? And where on that occasion was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to decry a fundamental lack of respect for our system of checks and balances? Lets agree, however: President Obama misspoke, as even he has acknowledged. It would indeed be one of the worst decisions in history for the court to overturn or eviscerate the health care act because Scalia thinks it ought to have been written differently. But it would be neither unprecedented nor extraordinary. The court has been overturning acts of Congress since Marbury v. Madison in 1803 and state laws since McCulloch v. Maryland in 1819. The Constitution is what the court says it is, even when the court is wrong. Some of those decisions, however, have been not merely wrong but also heedless of the vital principle of judicial restraint. Courts arent supposed to go out looking for fights to pick or to rule more broadly than necessary to resolve the cases brought to them. Above all, they should respect the policy decisions of the elected branches of government unless they are convincingly unconstitutional. As Chief Justice William Rehnquist once said, Conclusory second-guessing of difficult legislative decisions is not an attractive way for federal courts to engage in judicial review. Quoting those words in the current New Yorker, columnist Jeffrey Toobin observed the Roberts court acts as a sort of supra-legislature, dismissing laws that conflict with its own political agenda. It did so most notoriously in the Citizens United case two years ago, which unleashed corporations to spend directly, without limit, to elect their friends and defeat their foes. That wasnt even an issue in the case before the court, so the majority simply changed it to accomplish their political goals. The court will be legislating again if it savages the Affordable Health Care Act. The unpopular mandate to purchase health insurance of your choice was an honest, essential attempt to compromise with the powerful lobbies resisting a one-size-fits-all single-payer plan like Social Security and Medicare. Comprehensive health care cant work on a strictly voluntary basis any better than Medicare could. For the Supreme Court to reject that compromise could lead, ironically, to single-payer eventually becoming a reality. On the other hand, the courts opinion conceivably could undercut even Social Security and Medicare, and that truly would be monstrous. Obamas pre-emptory strike on the court is a timely reminder of one of the critical issues at stake when we vote for president. We elect a new one every four to eight years, but their Supreme Court appointees serve for life. Andrew Jackson, who was devoted to the Union, nearly destroyed it by appointing Roger Taney, the chief justice whose Dred Scott opinion a classic example of judicial overreach brought on the Civil War by ruling Congress was powerless to prohibit slavery in any territory. The two Presidents Bush campaigned as centrists but gave us radical activist justices whose promises to practice judicial restraint have so far proved false, and who may yet destroy what respect remains for their court. We know what President Obama expects of his Supreme Court appointees. They have practiced judicial restraint, if regrettably mainly in dissent. What sort of people would Mitt Romney nominate? Martin Dyckman is a retired associate editor of the newspaper formerly known as the St. Petersburg Times. That judges of important causes should hold office for life is a disputable thing, for the mind grows old as well as the body. Aristotle, Politics, 4th century B.C.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member SOUNDING BOARD Department should keep ties to CCC F earful of an omnipotent national government, the framers of the U.S. Constitution created a republic in which the sovereign power resides with the people and is exercised by elected representatives responsible to the people. Since the framers creation of a republican form of government with the people as the ultimate repository of sovereign power, grassroots involvement of ordinary citizens in consensus policymaking has been a linchpin of our representative democracy. Key to the vitality of grassroots involvement is two-way communication between government officials and the constituents they serve, especially at the local government level. The Citrus County Council (CCC), incorporated in 1982 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan consortium of civic clubs, homeowners associations and environmental groups, has been a major conduit for twoway communication between Citrus County government and its citizens for three decades. Nevertheless, county government recently took a step back from this two-way communication conduit when its Department of Planning and Development Services changed the time of its staff meeting with the result that it is no longer able to send a representative to the CCCs monthly meetings. In view of the CCCs three-decade role in fostering communication between county government and its citizens, the CCCs disappointment in this step back is understandable. Although the Department of Planning and Development Services staff meeting conflict and reduced staffing may make it difficult to send a representative to each of the CCCs monthly meetings, the departments mission of guiding the growth and development of our county and the CCCs role as a public sounding board make continued face-to-face communication between the two imperative. Accordingly, both parties are encouraged to work out a schedule that keeps the lines of two-way communication open. With open lines of communication, the department can best accomplish its mission of shaping Citrus Countys developmental growth by gaining the support of the citizens it serves and is accountable to. THE ISSUE: Communication between county government and Citrus County Council. OUR OPINION: Keep the lines open.

It wasnt long ago the words moderate and compromise were considered to be a good thing. Now the candidates are fighting over who is more conservative. I wonder if the time will ever come when the two parties will work together for the people and not the party.GOP off deep endAs I read Leonard Pitts article which I usually hate to read anyway on Monday morning (April 9), about the man who was getting out of the Republican Party, that hit home because Im thinking the same thing. The Republican Party, the Democratic Party, the only difference in them is the way they speak. And talk is cheap. And he said the Democratic Party hasnt fell off the deep end yet. Were $17 trillion in debt and hes going to try to tell me that one party, because its constituents get welfare money, has not fell off the deep end? Thats about the stupidest thing Ive ever heard a man say.Cant afford healthIts very sad in this economy when a person is working 40 hours a week for a paycheck that barely pays her bills and she ends up in the hospital on a medication they want to charge her $7,000 for, and this is from the pharmacy. Its very sad.

This was a tremendous opportunity missed once again to save the animals.Fewer tips to pay I have to laugh at all of these people worried about tips in a restaurant. Well, go back to the s.

The Muslim Brotherhood, the most powerful political group to emerge from last years uprising, finds itself increasingly in a bind. It is unable to exercise the power of its electoral wins so far and is jostling with the ruling generals and liberal and secular groups that drove the uprising but now fear religious domination of politics. The Brotherhood was outraged over the election commissions decision late Saturday to bar its chief strategist and leading choice for president, Khairat elShater. It threatened more protests like a large march on Friday that drew tens of thousands of Islamists to Cairos Tahrir Square. This is a political decision not a legal one, said Murad Mohammed Ali, a spokesman for el-Shaters campaign. From wire reports World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Taliban insurgents struck the heart of the Afghan capital and three eastern cities Sunday, firing automatic weapons and grenades at embassies, government buildings and NATO bases as they launched the spring fighting season with the boldest and most complex assault in years. The multi-pronged attacks show the Taliban and their allies are far from beaten and underscored the security challenge facing government forces as U.S. and NATO forces draw down. The majority of international combat troops are scheduled to leave by the end of 2014. The first blasts rocked the diplomatic quarter of Kabul on Sunday, and soon gunshots and rocket-propelled grenade fire were ringing out across the city. Smoke rose over the skyline as sirens wailed. A loudspeaker at the U.S. Embassy could be heard barking: Duck and cover. Move away from the windows. One police officer and 17 militants were killed in the attacks, the most widespread in the Afghan capital since an assault on the U.S. Embassy and NATO headquarters last September blamed on the Haqqani network, a Pakistan-based insurgent group allied with the Taliban. Fighting continued more than 12 hours after the first blasts, with explosions echoing into the night. The sophistication and firepower of the latest strikes, as well as the high-profile government and foreign targets, bore the hallmarks of the attack last fall. As in the earlier attack, armed insurgents took over half-built buildings Sunday and used them to fire down on nearby embassies and bases. In the streets of Kabuls Wazir Akbar Khan neighborhood, where a NATO base and a number of embassies, including the U.S. Embassy, are located, residents scrambled for cover as gunfire rained down from all directions. I saw two Land Cruisers pull up and two militants jumped from the car, said Mohammad Zakar, a 27-yearold mechanic who has a shop near the building commandeered by the militants. They opened fire on an intelligence service guard ... They also fired and killed an Afghan policeman and then they jumped into the building. All the shops closed. I ran away. Across town at the parliament building, insurgents climbed to the upper floors of another empty building and fired on lawmakers below. A few legislators climbed on the roof of the parliament and fired back. Taliban attack Aghan capital, 3 other cities One policeman, 17 militants died Truce in Syria eroding Associated PressBEIRUT Syrias 4day-old cease-fire appeared to be quickly eroding Sunday, with regime forces firing dozens of tank shells and mortar rounds at neighborhoods in the opposition stronghold of Homs, hours before the arrival of a first team of U.N. truce monitors. Even though the overall level of violence has dropped, escalating regime attacks over the weekend raised new doubts about President Bashar Assads commitment to a plan by special envoy Kofi Annan to end 13 months of violence and launch talks on Syrias political future. Assad accepted the truce deal at the prodding of his main ally, Russia, but his compliance has been limited. He has halted shelling of rebel-held neighborhoods, with the exception of Homs, but ignored calls to pull troops out of urban centers, apparently for fear of losing control over a country his family has ruled for four decades. Rebel fighters have also kept up attacks, including shooting ambushes. The international community hopes U.N. observers will be able to stabilize the cease-fire, which formally took effect Thursday. A six-member advance team of U.N. observers headed to Damascus on Sunday, a day after an unanimous U.N. Security Council approved such a mission. A larger team of 250 observers requires more negotiations between the U.N. and the Syrian government next week. U.N. Secretary-General Bank Ki-moon expressed serious concern at the Syrian governments shelling of Homs and said the whole world is watching with skeptical eyes whether the cease-fire can be sustained. It is important absolutely important that the Syrian government should take all the measures to keep this cessation of violence, he told reporters in Brussels after meeting Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo. I urge again in the strongest possible terms that this cessation of violence must be kept. Ban said he had in-depth discussions Saturday with Annan in Geneva and expressed hope once the full monitoring team is on the ground there will be calm and stability and peace without any violence. First team of U.N. monitors enter country Associated PressWOODWARD, Okla. The television was tuned to forecasters dire warnings of an impending storm when Greg Tomlyanobich heard a short burst from a tornado siren blare after midnight Sunday. Then silence. Then rumbling. The 52-year-old quickly grabbed his wife and grandson, hurrying them into the emergency cellar as debris whirled around their heads at their mobile home park in northwest Oklahoma. They huddled inside with about 20 other people before the tornado among dozens that swept across the nations midsection during the weekend roared across the ground above, ripping homes from their foundations. It scared the hell out of me, Tomlyanobich said. The storm killed five people, including three children, and injured more than two dozen in Woodward, a town about 140 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. But it was the only tornado that caused fatalities. Many of the touchdowns raked harmlessly across isolated stretches of rural Kansas, and though communities there and in Iowa were hit, residents and officials credited days of urgent warnings from forecasters for saving lives. When Tomlyanobich emerged from the underground shelter after the storm subsided, he saw a scattered trail of destruction: home insulation, siding and splintered wood where homes once stood; trees stripped of leaves, clothing and metal precariously hanging from limbs. It just makes you sick to your stomach. Just look at that mangled steel, he said Sunday, pointing to what appeared to be a giant twisted steel frame that had landed in the middle of the mobile home park, which is surrounded by rural land dotted with oil field equipment. The storms were part of an exceptionally strong system tracked by the National Weather Services Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., which specializes in tornado forecasting. The center took the unusual step of warning people more than 24 hours in advance of a possible high-end, life-threatening event. Center spokesman Chris Vaccaro said the weather service received at least 120 reports of tornadoes by dawn Sunday and was working to confirm how many actually touched down. The storm system was weakening as it crawled east and additional tornadoes were unlikely, though forecasters warned that strong thunderstorms could be expected as far east as Michigan. Woodward suffered the worst of the destruction from the storms, which also struck in Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. Woodward City Manager Alan Riffel said 89 homes and 13 businesses were destroyed, and bloodied survivors in the 12,000-resident town emerged to find flipped cars and smashed trailers. Retired firefighter Marty Logan said he spotted the tornado when it knocked down power lines, causing flashes of light, and saw a radio towers blinking lights go black. He later saw a man emerge from a twisted, wrecked sport utility vehicle that had been tossed along the side of the road. Surveying the damage Residents dig out after tornadoes hit; warnings saved lives Gaps found in nursing homes disaster plans Associated PressWASHINGTON Tornado, hurricane or flood, nursing homes are woefully unprepared to protect frail residents in a natural disaster, government investigators say. Government-required emergency plans often lack specific steps such as coordinating with local authorities, notifying relatives or even pinning name tags and medication lists to residents in an evacuation, according to the findings. That means the plans may not be worth the paper theyre written on. Nearly seven years after Hurricane Katrinas devastation of New Orleans exposed the vulnerability of nursing homes, serious shortcomings persist. We identified many of the same gaps in nursing home preparedness and response, investigators from the inspector generals office of the Department of Health and Human Services wrote in the report being released Monday. Emergency plans lacked relevant information. ... Nursing homes faced challenges with unreliable transportation contracts, lack of collaboration with local emergency management, and residents who developed health problems. The report recommends Medicare and Medicaid add specific emergency planning and training steps to the existing federal requirement that nursing homes have a disaster plan. Many such steps are now in nonbinding federal guidelines that investigators found were disregarded. In a written response, Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner agreed with the recommendation, but gave no timetable for carrying it out. Nationally, more than 3 million people spent at least some time in a nursing home during 2009, according to the latest available data. Nearly 40 percent of them, 1.2 million, were in the top 10 disaster-prone states. The typical nursing home resident is a woman in her 80s or older, dealing with physical and mental limitations that leave her dependent on others for help with basic daily activities. Linda Dupree, left, is hugged Sunday by an unidentified member of the Christian Motorcycle Association, following a deadly tornado in Woodward, Okla. Duprees grandson and two great-grandchildren perished when the tornado hit their mobile home.

From Dodger Stadium to Turner Field, there were celebrations. Players, managers, coaches and umpires all wore No. 42 on Jackie Robinson Day to remember the 65th anniversary of the day he broke baseballs color barrier. Robinsons daughter, Sharon, took part in an event with Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson and Los Angeles Angels pitcher LaTroy Hawkins at a youth ballfield in the Bronx. Ralph Branca, Robinsons former teammate on the Brooklyn Dodgers, threw out the first ball at Fenway Park. Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp tweeted: Thank u Jackie Robinson!!! The Robinson family was set to take part in a ceremony Sunday night before the Angels played at Yankee Stadium. 9 months later, Clemens back for perjury retrialWASHINGTON Jury selection is set to begin Monday in the retrial of Roger Clemens. Clemens is back in court nine months after the first attempt by the government to prove that the seventime Cy Young Award winner lied when he denied using steroids and human growth hormone before Congress in 2008. Only two witnesses had been called last July when U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton declared a mistrial. Walton said that prosecutors had made a gaffe that even a first-year law student wouldnt make. The second is expected to last four weeks to six weeks. U.S. sentencing guidelines suggest Clemens would receive up to 15 months to 21 months in prison if found guilty on all six counts. Western Kentucky football players shot outside of bar BOWLING GREEN, Ky. Two Western Kentucky football players are recovering after being wounded by gunshots outside a bar. A statement from the schools athletic department said defensive lineman Tevin Holliman and defensive back Ricardo Singh were each hit once, and their wounds werent life-threatening. The shooting early Sunday outside the Lava Lounge in Bowling Green happened hours after the team played its annual spring game. Bowling Green Police spokesman Ronnie Ward said it appears someone shot into a crowd outside the bar and struck the players. He said an officer driving by the scene heard gunshots and called for backup at 12:39 a.m. Holliman is a sophomore from Tucker, Ga., and Singh is a freshman from Auburndale, Fla. From wire reports Associated Press Blue Jays players wear No. 42 to honor Jackie Robinson on Sunday as they line up for the national anthems before playing the Baltimore Orioles in Toronto. Roger Clemens Associated PressBOSTON David Ortiz doubled in the go-ahead run for his seventh consecutivehit and the Boston Red Sox won their third straight game over the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-4 on Sunday. Boston, on a tear since a season-opening 1-5 road trip, can complete a series sweep in Mondays traditional Patriots Day game that starts at 11:05 a.m. Last year the Red Sox were just 2-7 at home against the Rays. Ortiz, who signed a oneyear contract in the offseason, is off to one of the best starts of his career. Hes 16 for 36 in nine games in April, a month in which he has struggled in recent years. He had 20 hits in 22 April games in 2009, eight in 16 games in 2010 and 23 in 25 games in 2011. But on Sunday with the score tied 4-all in the sixth inning, he doubled home Kevin Youkilis, who had walked. Ortiz went 4 for 5 with a homer and five RBIs in Saturdays 13-5 win. Then he doubled, singled and doubled in his first three at-bats on Sunday before grounding out to first to end the seventh. Also in the seventh, Mike Aviles hit his second solo homer in two days from the leadoff spot. He moved there for the first time this season on Saturday when Jacoby Ellsbury went on the 15-day disabled list with a partially separated right shoulder. Vicente Padilla (1-0) pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings after Felix Doubront left the game after allowing Luke Scotts lead-off homer that tied it in the sixth. Alfredo Aceves pitched the ninth for his second save in three opportunities. C.J. RISAK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER A prediction made by the guy whos won more Presential Tournaments than anyone proved accurate: The best golfer in this years tournament was Tim Hume. Hume proved it by shooting a superb closing round, a 67 that, combined with his opening-round 72, boosted him to a five-under par total of 139 and a five-stroke victory in the 45th annual Presidential Tournament, hosted Saturday and Sunday by Seven Rivers Golf and Country Club. I did pretty well, but Tim was just too good, said Scott Lynch, whose even-par 144 earned him second place. Humes scorecard showed how accurate that was. After parring the first three holes, he got birdies on the fourth, sixth, seventh and eighth for a fourunder par 32 on the front nine. His back-nine 35 included his only bogey of the day, on the 12th hole. He countered that with birdies at 13 and 17. I played solid (Saturday), and it wasnt as windy today, Hume said. But I played great on Friday (in a practice round); I shot a 66. To Hume, his play Sunday was predicated on what the others in his foursome were doing, notably the aforementioned guy whos won the most Presidential titles including last years Bob Bleakley. Bleakley started off with three birdies in a row, Hume said. From then on, the grind was on.

Pettersson had a run of five straight birdies on the front nine during the third round Saturday to move in front. This time, Pettersson birdied three of the first five holes and built a five-shot lead by the turn that he never relinquished. He finished at 14 under. It was Petterssons fifth career PGA Tour title and first since the 2010 Canadian Open. He tied countryman Jesper Parnevik for most wins on tour by a Swedish player. Top-ranked Luke Donald needed to finish eighth or better to retain his ranking, but tied for 37th and will fall behind Rory McIlroy. Johnson shot a 70 to finish second at 9 under, while Colt Knosts chances for his first PGA Tour title fell apart with a 74. He was third, another shot further back.

He will undergo a further examination Monday. Jason Richardson added 16 points for Orlando, which had five players in double figures. J.J. Redick scored 13. Antawn Jamison led the Cavaliers with 21 points. Donald Sloan scored a career-high 15. Cleveland completed its only set of back-to-back-toback games this season. The Cavaliers lost in Indiana on Friday and picked up a road win in Washington Saturday. The Cavaliers again played without rookie point guard Kyrie Irving, who missed his 10th straight game with a sprained right shoulder. Coach Byron Scott said its possible hell return Wednesday night when Cleveland hosts Philadelphia. Its uncertain if center Anderson Varejao will return this season. Varejao hasnt played since Feb. 10. Orlando was in control throughout in the battle of short-handed teams in extending its winning streak over Cleveland to nine games. The Cavaliers scored 15 points in each of the first two quarters and shot 28.9 percent in the first half. Howard missed his fourth straight game. The Magic originally said he had back spasms, but an examination in Los Angeles revealed the disk injury. Howard will rest the injury for 10 days and will then be re-evaluated. Howard joined his teammates in Cleveland, but remained at the Magics hotel during the game. He accompanied the team back to Orlando, where the Magic host Philadelphia on Monday. Van Gundy said before Sundays game he would consider it a bonus if Howard and Turkoglu return this season. Davis was injured when he went up for a shot and came down awkwardly on his right leg. He crumpled to the floor and was down for a couple of minutes. Davis walked with a noticeable limp to the locker room. He had six points and two rebounds in seven minutes. MAGIC Continued from Page A1 Associated PressSUNRISE Stephen Weiss scored the first two playoff goals of his 10-year NHL career, Jose Theodore stopped 23 shots and the Florida Panthers got their first playoff victory in nearly 15 years, beating the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Sunday night to even the first-round series at a game apiece. Marcel Goc had a goal and an assist for the Panthers, who survived a frantic Devils rally in the third. Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk scored in the first 2:02 of the third period, and Martin Brodeur made 20 saves for New Jersey. Tomas Fleischmann had an empty-net goal as time expired and Florida fans littered the ice with hundreds of toy rats a tradition that dates to the Panthers run to the 1996 Stanley Cup finals. Feels good, said Stephen Weiss. Obviously, these fans have been waiting a long time for this kind of hockey and this is a big win for us. Not the start we wanted in the third period, but this is a big win. It was the Panthers first playoff win in 5,478 days they beat the New York Rangers 3-0 on April 17, 1997, a year before the arena they currently call home even opened. Flyers 8, Penguins 4 PHILADELPHIA Fists were flying faster than shots on goal. Sidney Crosby and Claude Giroux even became knotted in the pushing, pulling and shoving, a pair of superstars willing to mix it up to prove which team was the baddest on the ice and the scoreboard. The Penguins and Flyers talked trash, laid the smack down, and played one wildly entertaining game. The result was still the same. The Flyers rallied from another early deficit for a decisive Game 3 victory that placed them on the brink of an improbable sweep. Danny Briere, Matt Read and Max Talbot each scored two goals to lead Philadelphia to an 8-4 victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday in a fightfilled game in the Eastern Conference quarterfinal. Giroux and Wayne Simmonds also scored to help the Flyers take a 3-0 lead in the combustible best-of-seven series. Game 4 is Wednesday night in Philadelphia. The Flyers scored 30 goals in the first three games. The goals might be hard to find on a highlight reel. This one was all about the brawls more suitable for a UFC card. Three players were tossed in the first period. There was a rare fight between superstars when Crosby squared off against Giroux. No one got the better end of that scrap. But by the end, Flyers fans serenaded the Penguins with booming chants of You cant beat us! All three games were kind of weird games, Giroux said. I guess I like weird games because we always finish by winning. Jordan Staal and James Neal scored twice for the Penguins. Predators 3, Red Wings 2DETROIT Shea Weber knew he wouldnt be popular in the Motor City. The star defenseman didnt really care, he just wanted to win. Weber turned boos into silence with a goal early in the first period and the Nashville Predators held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in the firstround series. I guess were more focused on the game, he said. Weber was jeered every time he touched the puck for smashingHenrik Zetterbergs face into glass at the end of Game 1. We talk about great players when theres a little bit of controversy stepping up, Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. When he came to the rink, he knew he wasnt going to be the most likable player in the arena. Webers goal snapped Nashvilles 0-for-12 streak on the power play against the Red Wings in the series and helped the franchise end its 0-for-6 skid in playoff games against them on the road. We havent been around for 100 years, so this was just another thing we had to get done, Trotz said. The Predators, who are in their 13th NHL season, advanced in the playoffs last year for the first time and are trying to get past the Red Wings after being eliminated by them in 2008 and 2004. Detroit will need to win Tuesday to avoid facing elimination in Game 5 at Nashville. Kevin Klein gave the Predators a 2-0 lead early in the second and Pavel Datsyuk pulled the Red Wings within one midway through the period. Sergei Kostitsyn sealed the victory with a wrist shot from the inside of the right circle with 3:30 left on a sequence that started with Klein getting to a rebound on the other end of the ice and passing the puck along to Mike Fisher.

Ramon Sessions scored 22 points, and Gasol had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers, who are 4-1 while the NBAs leading scorer rests his bruised shin. Metta World Peace had 18 points as Los Angeles rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit before finishing off a four-game season sweep of the defending champion Mavericks. Dirk Nowitzki had 24 points on 9-of-28 shooting and 14 rebounds, but Jason Terry missed a potential tying layup at the rim with 5 seconds left in overtime for the Mavericks, whose threegame winning streak ended. Delonte West scored 20 points, and Terry had 21 before missing a shot while trying to avoid Matt Barnes defense. Heat 93, Knicks 85 NEW YORK LeBron James had 29 points and 10 rebounds, Dwyane Wade added 28 points and nine boards, and the Heat beat the Knicks to clinch the Southeast Division title. Chris Bosh finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds for the Heat, who pulled away in the fourth quarter of a possible playoff preview. Miami is second in the Eastern Conference and New York came into the game tied for seventh, although they fell back behind Philadelphia after the loss. Carmelo Anthony scored 42 points for the Knicks, but had only two baskets in the fourth quarter, perhaps tired after playing 43 minutes. Bulls 100, Pistons 94 (OT) AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Derrick Rose scored 24 points, including a tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation, and the Bulls beat the Pistons for the 15th straight time. Rodney Stuckey scored 32 points for the Pistons, but he missed two crucial free throws late in the fourth quarter. Roses 3-pointer with 6.4 seconds remaining tied the game at 86 and sent it to the extra session. Joakim Noah had 20 points and 17 rebounds for the Bulls, who are 3 1/2 games ahead of Miami in the race for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Raptors 102, Hawks 86 ATLANTA DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points and the injury-riddled Raptors beat the Hawks for their second straight win over a playoff-bound team. Alan Anderson, one of three Toronto players whose 10-day contract is about to expire, added 16 points for the Raptors, who were coming off an 84-79 win against Boston on Friday. Toronto, bound for the NBAs draft lottery, dominated in Atlanta. The Hawks, who routed the Magic 109-81 Friday for their fourth win in five games, never led against the Raptors. Josh Smith scored 12 of his 26 points in the first quarter, but Atlanta allowed Toronto to shoot 55 percent (41 for 74). Kings 104, Trail Blazers 103SACRAMENTO, Calif. Marcus Thornton scored 20 points and made the winning jumper with 3.4 seconds left, lifting the Kings to a victory over the Trail Blazers. Thornton hit a 17-footer off an inbound pass before Portlands Raymond Felton missed a desperation shot from halfcourt at the buzzer. DeMarcus Cousins scored 23 points and Tyreke Evans also had 20 for the Kings, who rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to snap a seven-game skid with only their third win in 15 games. Isaiah Thomas had 18 points and eight assists. Celtics 94, Bobcats 82 CHARLOTTE, N.C. Rajon Rondo had 20 points and 16 assists to help the Celtics beat the Bobcats despite playing without three of their star players. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen were given the night off to rest and did not make the trip to Charlotte, N.C. to face the NBA-worst Bobcats. But the Celtics won anyway as Avery Bradley and Brandon Bass each scored 22 points. Greg Stiemsma started in place of Garnett and had six blocks, tying a career-high. The loss was the Bobcats 16th straight, tying a dubious franchise record set earlier this season. Gerald Henderson had 22 points in a losing effort for the Bobcats (7-52). If the Bobcats lose their final seven games this season they will finish with the worst single-season winning percentage in NBA history.Hornets 88, Grizzlies 75NEW ORLEANS Eric Gordon scored 18 points and the Hornets won for the fourth time in five games, upsetting the playoff-contending Grizzlies. Saints owner Tom Benson attended his first game since Fridays announcement that he had agreed to buy the Hornets from the NBA. He received a standing ovation, and the Hornets kept the applause coming as they pulled away in the fourth quarter from a Grizzlies squad that had won five of its previous six games. Carl Landry had 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Jason Smith had 14 points and 10 rebounds for New Orleans. Rudy Gay scored 24 points for Memphis. Nuggets 101, Rockets 86 DENVER Arron Afflalo scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half, leading the Denver Nuggets to a 101-86 win over the Houston Rockets in the opener of a crucial home-and-home set between playoff hopefuls. With the win, the Nuggets took sole possession of seventh place in the Western Conference. The teams are clinging to the final two playoff spots in the West, trying to fend off fastcharging Phoenix and Utah. Ty Lawson also scored 20 points for Denver.

Hes won more of these tournaments than anyone. As well as Hume may have been playing, he knew Bleakley had one significant advantage: As a Seven Rivers member, he had a much greater knowledge of the course. Prior to Fridays round, Hume who lives in Tampa had played it just three times. Youve got to manage your game on this course, Hume said, something Bleakley did well. Absolutely. He knew where to hit his drives and where to lay off. The main key was to bear down after Bleakley got off to that fast start. But the fast start was all the defending champion could muster. He would not get another birdie after stringing those together on the second, third and fourth holes, and he carded two bogeys and then had a double bogey on No. 14 for a 73.That left him with a 1-over-par two-day score of 145, good for third place behind Lynch. Rick Powers combined rounds of 76 and 75 for a 151 total, earning a fourth-place finish. I told you he was better than us, Bleakley said of Hume. Hes longer off the tee than I am and his irons are better than mine. He was just better. Hes got a better golf game than anyone else in the tournament. If Bleakley and Lynch needed any further convincing of Humes ability, it came on the par-five, 556-yard 17th hole. Hume blistered his drive and followed it up with a wood shot onto the green. He narrowly missed his chance for an eagle, settling for a birdie and a five-shot lead. He hit a tee shot at 17 that a two or three handicap cant hit, Bleakley said. That additional yardage off the tee and with his fairway irons and woods was the result of a lesson Hume had Thursday with his coach, Vince Puglia, in Juliette Falls. I havent been playing well, Hume said. Thats why I went for a lesson. Ive been with him for 20 years. A few swing adjustments were all that was needed for Hume to dominate. The Championship A Flights leader after the opening round was Dick Laxton, whose 73 left him in the running for the overall championship. But Laxton experienced back trouble on the back nine and had to withdraw, allowing Tom Hendrick to claim the Championship A Flight title with a 7874/152 total. Terry Austin was second with a 160. In the Championship First Flight, Kelly Brady earned a two-stroke victory over runner-up Vince Christian with a finishing 76 for a 154 total.

Hes got a better golf game than anyone else in the tournament. Bob Bleakley previous tournament champion. with Matt Bettencourt (69). Masters winner Bubba Watson and most of the worlds best took the week off to recover from the years first major. Pettersson rolled in a 24footer on No. 1 to get things started with a birdie. He added another birdie, from 16 feet on the par-3 fourth hole, then two-putted from 40 feet on the par-5 fifth to go up by four shots. When Johnson took bogey at No. 10, Pettersson was five strokes in front and cruising. Knost was on top after Thursday and Friday and felt good as part of the final pairing. But those nerves Knost acknowledged on Saturday were apparantly back again in the final round. He missed an 8-foot putt for par and made bogey on No. 1 for a second straight round to drop three shots behind Pettersson. And just like Saturday, Knost fought back with a birdie on the second hole he made eagle there in the third round to close in on Pettersson. However, Knosts chances ended, though, a hole later with a horrible drive out of bounds left on No. 3 that led to a triple-bogey seven and left him five shots behind and out of contention. When Knost flew his approach to the 12th green way left, he simply stood in the fairway and stared straight ahead, hands on hips, in disbelief. Johnson, four strokes behind Pettersson at the start, tried to make a charge with birdies on the second, fourth and fifth holes. Johnson closed to three shots when he birdied No. 15 and Pettersson had his first bogey of the day moments later. But Johnson ran out of steam on the 16th hole when he drove into a waste bunker and took bogey. Still, it was Johnsons best showing of the year and first top10 finish since January. Donald was largely resigned to surrendering No. 1 when he woke up early for his 9:46 a.m. start time, more than four hours before the final group of Pettersson and Knost teed off. Donalds round began badly with a double bogey at No. 1. He worked his way back with birdies on the fifth and sixth hole and thats where he stayed. Donald ended a four-week run at No. 1 that began after he won the Transitions Championship last month. Donald said hes proved hes among the worlds best and is confident hell stay in that conversation, no matter where hes ranked. Now, my focus is winning tournaments, he said. Donald headed the list of four golfers among the 20 who followed the Masters with Harbour Town. World No. 13 Webb Simpson finished at 4 over while No. 14 Matt Kuchar, two strokes from the playoff in third at Augusta National, also was way off the pace at 3 over. No. 18 Bill Haas did not make the cut. Petterssons last victory came at the RBC Canadian Open in 2010 and this win was likely just popular with first-year Heritage sponsor Royal Bank of Canada. The financial institution, along with the Boeing Co., stepped in last June to back the cashstrapped event which was in danger of disappearing without such support.

The third-seeded Andujar converted all of his four breakpoint chances and he has yet to drop a set in three career wins against his countryman. Monaco beats Isner in Clay Court ChampionshipHOUSTON Juan Monaco defeated John Isner 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 in the final match of the U.S. Clay Court Championship on Sunday. Isner wouldve moved up to No. 8 in the rankings with a victory, but the Argentine broke Isners serve three times to hand the American his first clay loss of the year. Monaco won on clay for the second time this year and improved to 11-2 on the surface this year overall. He came in ranked 16th and his first victory in America will move up him to No. 14, matching a career high. Isner won 44 consecutive service games in the tournament before Monaco broke him twice in the first set to take control. Isner had eight aces in the match, but also had five double faults.

Pollock, who would have turned 100 in 2012, will have the anniversary of his birth observed with exhibitions, fundraisers and other events throughout the year. Hunger Games beat out Stooges D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Movie fans have chosen real violence over the slapstick variety as The Hunger Games held off The Three Stooges to remain the No. 1 weekend movie. Lionsgates The Hunger Games, the blockbuster about teens competing in a televised fight to the death, stayed on top for a fourth-straight weekend with $21.5 million. That raises the films domestic total to $337.1 million. I think a couple of weeks ago, if someone had told us where wed be, we would have said, Wed like to see that number, but it would be a pleasant surprise. So were in that pleasant surprise spot at this point, said Richie Fay, head of distribution for Lionsgate. Peter and Bobby Farrellys slapstick update The Three Stooges opened in second-place with $17.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That was well above industry expectations of around $10 million for the 20th Century Fox update starring Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe, Sean Hayes as Larry and Will Sasso as Curly. Fox executives had figured the movie would appeal mainly to young males. But it also pulled in older men who grew up on the Stooges and a fair number of women and girls as whole families turned out to see it, said Chris Aronson, the studios head of distribution. If youre predisposed to open your mind, its a laugh riot, Aronson said. The acclaimed horror tale The Cabin in the Woods debuted in thirdplace with $14.9 million. A smart, twisting take on the genre produced and cowritten by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), the long-delayed Cabin in the Woods had been one of the films caught up in MGMs bankruptcy but was finally released by Lionsgate. On the 100th anniversary of the ships sinking on April 15, 1912, the 3-D version of James Camerons Titanic sailed past the $2 billion mark worldwide. Titanic is just the second blockbuster to top $2 billion, trailing only the next film Cameron made the sci-fi sensation Avatar, which took in $2.8 billion. Domestically, Titanic held the No. 4 spot with $11.6 million. The 3-D rerelease has taken in $44.4 million domestically to lift the films lifetime total to $645.2 million.

Out behind a small farmhouse on a Long Island country road sits an old gray barn where a tormented artist dripped paint off brushes, sticks even turkey basters onto canvasses spread out on a wooden floor. Besides making quite a mess of things, leaving splash marks everywhere, Jackson Pollock also created some of the 20th centurys greatest masterpieces. Pollock, who would have turned 100 this year, is being remembered at a New York City fundraiser later this month honoring a charity that aids struggling artists, along with the Academy Award-nominated actor and filmmaker Ed Harris who spent nearly a decade making the 2000 film Pollock. There also are exhibitions in Washington, D.C., and at the home Pollock shared with his wife, artist Lee Krasner, in the Springs community of East Hampton now a museum and study center. And shoe manufacturer Crocs is releasing a Pollock-inspired shoe this June, fashioned after the paint-splashed floor that visitors can still see in the artists barn. I think Pollocks art is incredible, Harris told The Associated Press in a recent telephone interview. I think it was revolutionary at the time and I think it kind of holds up that way and it is really exquisite. The fundraiser honoring Harris, and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, which has given $56.3 million in grants to artists in 72 countries since 1985, is intended to help finance and expand the work of a separate Stony Brook Universitybased organization that runs the Pollock-Krasner home.Inside Pollocks home What we try to give people here is insights into who these people were, what it was that stimulated them creatively and where that took them in terms of their art, said Helen Harrison, director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. Harris said before he started filming in 1999 the exteriors of the Pollock-Krasner home and scenes from a nearby general store were filmed on location in Springs; the interiors re-created on a Brooklyn sound stage he spent a couple of nights sleeping in Pollocks bedroom. I was hoping for a visitation, which didnt quite happen, joked Harris, who was nominated for a best actor Oscar for his performance in the film, which also was his directorial debut. I cant even express how invaluable it was to me, he said of the home. I dont think the film would have really have had the richness and authenticity it did if we werent filming there. Just on an emotional level, or a metaphysical level of some kind, you know youre filming a story about this man and this is where he lived. Assessing his work Pollock, a lifelong alcoholic who died behind the wheel in a drunken-driving crash at the age of 44, was a controversial artist reviled by some critics and lionized by others. His best-known paintings were created by dripping paint, seemingly haphazardly, across canvasses large and small. Some feature popping bright colors, others are stark black-and-whites. I like to describe his work as energy made visible, said Pepe Karmel, a Pollock expert and assistant professor in the art history department at New York University. The lines curving through space, changing direction, the colors; it is an amazing image of the world that could represent many things. Its totally opened ended. What they all have in common is the fantastic energy that characterizes modern society. Pollock was already an artist of some note working in Manhattans Greenwich Village in the early 1940s, but the move to Long Island in late 1945 was the key to unlocking his genius, many experts say. They also agree Krasners motive in separating Pollock from his drinking buddies in Manhattan succeeded in focusing his attention on his artwork, albeit temporarily. Marcia Gay Harden won a best supporting actress Oscar for her portrayal of Krasner, who was an artist in her own right, living in the home until her death in 1984 at age 75. He looks out and he sees Mother Nature, which is his great stimulation, Harrison said. And then he thinks back to his childhood in Arizona and California and the wide open spaces. These things all came flooding back to him, and he has an epiphany. Added Karmel: In a very general way, the landscape did inspire him. The immensity of the ocean, being on the beach; that is certainly feeling akin to being out west. Pollocks effectToday, Pollock artworks sell for tens of millions one painting in 2006 reportedly sold to an unidentified collector for $140 million but when the couple lived in East Hampton in the late s and s, they struggled to pay their bills. Harrison said there was one bounced check found amid Pollocks papers for $4, and it was several years before the home was equipped with electricity and plumbing. Besides the April 25 fundraiser in Manhattan, a centennial tribute of Pollocks art continues at the Lawrence A. Fleischman Gallery in Washington, D.C., until May 15. An exhibit, The Persistence of Pollock, will be on display at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center from May 3 to July 28, and a lecture on Pollock and Krasner will be at the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall in East Hampton on July 22.

Set your sights on one major goal and go full tilt. Aries (March 21-April 19) You may enter the day with high hopes, but unless something good happens to help you keep that positive attitude, the slightest upset will send you into a funk. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Upon occasion youre apt to ignore those who have done the most for you, while rewarding the undeserving in hopes of getting their attention. This approach will do nothing for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) In order to get others to do your bidding, you might try to use some flattery. However, if the recipient doesnt deserve your words of praise, youll get nowhere. Sincerity will have the greatest impact. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you run into someone who can help you in your career, the use of levity could prove counterproductive. Keep your conversation on a serious plane. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Youll be of no help if you tell an advice seeker only what she or he wants to hear. Youll do more for the other party if you are frank and forthright. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Even if the truth is painful, be sure to base your judgment calls on facts. Decisions based on easy outs might make you feel good, but if they do nothing for you, theyre worthless. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont think it wont anger your friends if you give them cause to think youre nice only to those who can help you get what you want. Treat everyone with the same courtesy. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if members of the opposite sex usually find you quite appealing, dont mistake the signals and think someone is making a pass at you. It could prove to be embarrassing. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Even if you dont have any current plans to use them, your pragmatic skills will be more pronounced than your artistic ones. Put them to work for you if you can. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Its important to follow through on any promises you made to another, even if it now causes you a bit of inconvenience. Doing so will greatly enhance your reputation. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you are penny-wise and pound foolish, dont be surprised if you discover a lot of holes in your books when it comes time to take stock. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Unless you are materially motivated, it isnt likely that youll use the full force of your talents. However, youll shift into full gear when there is something in it for you.

B6 M ONDAY, A PRIL 16, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Last week we compared active and passive defense. This week we will look at less specific defense deals, covering a variety of techniques. Most deals that feature signaling require playing either an unnecessarily high card to encourage partner to continue the suit he has led or the lowest one to warn of no help in that suit. Take this deal as an example. Against four hearts, West starts with the diamond ace: four, two, six. How should he plan the defense from there? Over Wests takeout double, Norths two notrump was Truscott (often incorrectly called Jordan, after Bobby, who popularized it in the United States). It promised at least game-invitational values with four or more cards in partners suit. (With a strong balanced hand, North should start with a redouble.) Many Wests would not resist the temptation to cash the diamond king at trick two. And as you can see, that is fatal for the defense. Assuming West shifts to a spade at trick three (aided by Easts dropping a suit-preference diamond nine at trick two), declarer calls for dummys ace, draws trumps and discards his second spade on the established diamond jack. He loses only two diamonds and one club. West should trust his partners discouraging diamond two, which marks declarer with the queen. It is time to switch. A club might be best, but a spade looks more logical. Declarer has no option but to try the finesse; however, it loses and eventually the defenders will collect one spade, two diamonds and one club.

My husband has gone out of his way to mistreat me. It has been eight years since we have had sex. He claims its due to a physical problem, but thats not true. I once spotted him fondling a female guest during a dinner prayer and getting excited. He told me I repulse him and thats why he wont do anything about his sex problem. I asked him to leave, and he refused, saying hed let the house rot to the ground before Id get it. So I moved out. He gave my cell number to our preacher and church members and told them he could not live without me. After receiving calls threatening to have me publicly removed from their membership, I went back to him. We went to our deacons house for dinner last week, and he told them how he stayed home to take care of me after I was in a car accident, listing all the sacrifices he made on my behalf. He failed to mention that the reason he could stay home was that he had been fired from his job for sexual harassment his third offense. The church thinks he is wonderful and I am the bad guy. I am not looking to destroy his reputation. I just want to get away from him before he further ruins my life. He has even lied to our children, saying I left because I have a boyfriend on the side. They believe him. What can I do? I Am So Sad Dear Sad: Your husband is a bully who is counting on the fact that you wont defend yourself. Stop worrying about his reputation and consider your own. Please tell your children and the deacon the truth about your situation, and ask for their help. Counseling would be a good first step, with or without your husband, through your church or via your doctors recommendation. Dear Annie : A friend and I met at a restaurant to have dinner with a few close family members. One of the attendees is an insulin dependent diabetic. Just after ordering, while seated at the table, this person raised his shirt and injected himself in the stomach with insulin. It was unexpected and not the dining experience my friend and I expected to share. I will be dining out with this person later this summer. What should I do or say to avoid a repeat of that unappetizing start to a meal? Lost My Appetite Dear Lost : Unless these things can be done so discreetly that no one notices, it is best to inject insulin, insert contact lenses, brush hair, floss teeth, repeatedly blow ones nose, apply makeup, etc., in the restroom instead of subjecting your tablemates to your personal requirements. Some diabetics find this enormously inconvenient (and we cant blame them if the restrooms are unclean) and expect others to be tolerant. If your friend is one of those, we suggest you either avert your gaze and make the best of it, or tell the others to go ahead and order because youll be arriving late. Dear Annie: I was compelled to respond to Worried Mom, who complains about her 22-year-old sons antisocial behavior while he is studying for the MCAT. I remember very well studying for the MCAT. I spent every waking hour of the weekends at the library so I would not be disturbed. I studied nonstop all week. My friends worried when I left events after only 30 minutes. My parents saw me rarely. The MCAT is a purposefully difficult exam. It weeds out those who are not serious about medicine as a career. Doctors sacrifice their personal lives for their patients. I recommend the parents do their son a huge favor and leave him alone. If he doesnt get into medical school due to insufficient study, he will forever regret his laxity.

Associated PressLONG BEACH, Calif. Will Power kept Penske Racing perfect this season by picking his way through the field Sunday at Long Beach to win his second consecutive IndyCar Series race. Power was one of the 11 Chevrolet drivers penalized for changing the engines as a precautionary measure when teams reported to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The punishment was 10 spots on the starting grid, so Power, who qualified second, rolled off in 12th at the start Sunday. One race after driving from ninth to first to win at Barber, the Australian did it again. After last week, you can never say never, but I thought it would be very tough to win the race, Power said. We worked hard, we got a penalty and we overcame it. Ive been trying to win here for four years. Penske won the seasonopening race with Helio Castroneves, and Power has won the last two to make the team a perfect 3-0 on the season. The victory also gave Power the points lead. In the end, despite the penalties, Chevrolet drivers claimed eight of the top-10 finishing spots. After picking his way through traffic, Power still had to hold off hard-charging Simon Pagenuad to preserve the win Penskes first at Long Beach since 2001. Pagenaud made it close, but traffic hurt his chances, and the rookie settled for a career-best finish of second for Honda. Takuma Sato seemed headed to a third-place finish, but was spun on the last lap by Ryan Hunter-Reay. IndyCar assessed a 30-second penalty on HunterReay, so third place went to James Hinchcliffe in his first career podium. It was a messy race from the start as rookie Josef Newgardens aggressive move on leader Dario Franchitti backfired. Newgarden was moved to the front row after the Chevrolets were penalized, and the 21-year-old joked after Saturdays qualifying that he might try to pass Franchitti immediately because the four-time champion wouldnt be expecting such a bold move. Newgarden backed up his words, and tried to get past Franchitti on the outside as they headed into the first turn. There seemed to be some contact between the two, and Newgardens car sailed into the tire barrier, ending his race without a single completed lap. That immediate incident set the tone for a rough race, with a hard crash between Marco Andretti and Graham Rahal the most frightening moment of the day. The drivers disagreed on who was to blame for the collision that resulted in Andrettis car sailing up and over Rahals before spinning into a barrier. Its a cluster back there, Rahal said. I think I surprised Marco. He wasnt going to make the corner no matter what. Andretti thought Rahal intentionally cut him off and should have been penalized. During the yellow flag for IndyCar to clean up the mess from the Andretti wreck, Scott Dixons car came to a complete stop on the track to punctuate a rough day for the Target Chip Ganassi Racing drivers. Franchitti, who started from the pole because of the Chevrolet penalties, finished 15th. Rosberg wins Chinese GP for first F1 victorySHANGHAI Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg won the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday for his first career Formula One victory after starting from pole. Rosberg won by a staggering 20.6 seconds over McLarens Jenson Button after making just two pits stops and managing to hold off the rest of the field on worn tires. Buttons McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton was third, followed by the Red Bull duo of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel. Vettel, the defending champion, started 11th and at one stage moved up to second, but couldnt hold off Button, Hamilton and Webber in the closing stages. With his finish, Hamilton takes the lead in the driver standings with 45 points, two ahead of Button. Fernando Alonso is third with 37 points, followed by Webber(36) and Vettel (28). Rosberg moves into sixth with 25. B8 M ONDAY, A PRIL 16, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE A UTORACING Classifieds Classifieds Classifieds In Print and Online All The Time!

It will take years off your life. Ive probably lost several, Biffle said. What kept me going or what keeps your spirit up is when you run good. ... We have run good, we just hadnt finished. Until getting to Texas, where Jack Roushs drivers have always been good. Biffle held on tight in the fastest Sprint Cup race ever on the 1 1/2mile, high-banked track, pulling away after charging below Jimmie Johnson for a winning pass with 30 laps remaining on a windy and fast-paced Saturday night. The NASCAR Sprint Cup season points leader after five consecutive races now has a victory to go with that lofty status. To win like this and put a bunch of ground on the guys behind us certainly makes a statement, I think, for all the people that were wondering if this was kind of a fluke that we were still leading the points this far in, Biffle said. For Roush, it was his ninth victory in 23 Cup races at Texas, and completed a weekend sweep in the Lone Star State. The team owner won his ninth Nationwide race in Texas, and fourth in a row, when Ricky Stenhouse Jr. went to Victory Lane on Friday night. After passing Johnson with a strong move deep down in Turn 3 I knew the team would forgive me if I wrecked it trying to beat him, Biffle said the No. 16 Ford went on to a 3.2-second victory with an average speed of 160.577 mph. Biffles 17th career victory was his first since an October 2010 race in Kansas, where the series goes next week. A decade after winning the Nationwide Series season championship, which came after a NASCAR trucks championship, maybe this could be the year the 42-year-old Biffle becomes the first driver with a NASCAR series trifecta of titles. When I moved from the Truck Series to Nationwide, it was a huge step. It was much, much harder. And when I moved from the Nationwide to the Cup Series, I had no idea that the competition was going to be what it was, he said. I knew it was going to be hard. ... But this year is my year, so Im going to keep after it all the way to Homestead. Johnson led three times for 156 of the 334 laps while going for owner Rick Hendricks 200th victory. But the five-time Cup champion never recovered, even scraping the No. 48 Chevrolet hard into the wall trying to catch up after Biffle drove under him and passed him for the final time. Im definitely disappointed, but we had a great race car, said Johnson, who had led only 119 laps combined his first 17 Texas starts. I just got tangled up in some lapped traffic and the No. 16 made a great move and got by me. Then I was pacing him from there and didnt have anything left to go get him. It was Johnsons fifth runner-up finish in Texas. Mark Martin was third in a Michael Waltrip-owned Toyota, while his teammate and polesitter Martin Truex Jr. led 69 laps and finished sixth, his fourth consecutive top 10 this season. Hendrick driver Jeff Gordon was fourth. Matt Kenseth was fifth. Associated Press Greg Biffle (16) passes Martin Truex Jr. (56) for the lead Saturday during the race for Saturdays Samsung Mobile 500 in Fort Worth, Texas.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER On a warm Wednesday afternoon, Ozello neighbors Joanne Hopkins and Ginny Sorrell socialized before getting into the pool for water aerobics. About 20 others chatted among themselves on the deck at Bicentennial Pool, waiting for their exercises to begin. Hopkins comes to the pool three times a week for aerobics. Wednesday was Sorrells second visit and both friends love it. I didnt even know it was here and Ive lived in the area since 1984, Sorrell says of the countyowned pool at Bicentennial Park. And they are equally alarmed at the prospect of losing their water activity. Citrus County officials say programs such as 4-H, Coastal Region Library and wintertime Bicentennial Pool could be on the budget chopping block without a tax rate increase to pay for services. I think its a very bad idea, Hopkins said. This is a good place to be. Commissioners have an April 24 budget workshop scheduled where they hope the public will choose between cutting programs for increasing the tax rate for the county to bring in the same amount of money in 2013 as it did this year. Commissioner J.J. Kenney said he believes residents will choose a millage increase over losing their favorite programs. The people I have talked to have all indicated they would accept a millage increase rather than a cut in any services, Kenney said. In my mind I do not want to close anything. I would rather keep all the services going. County officials say CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterThe prospect of eliminating the county extension services to avoid a tax increase raised a quick reaction from 4-H members and supporters. They met to discuss ways to show how much 4-H means to them. I have taken on the role of advocating to save extension and 4-H, wrote Carolyn R. Quintanilla of Lecanto, who grew up in the 4-H program as a member of the Lecanto Levis club and whose children now are members. Quintanillas e-mail message went out to about 18 4-H clubs in Citrus County. The extension employees cannot advocate for themselves, Quintanilla continued. So it will be up to the community to rally support. 4-H teaches youngsters life skills development in ways that are interesting enough to capture the attention of the young people and keep them coming back. Those who received Quintanillas email 4-H leaders, assistant leaders, parents and members were eager to meet to find ways to show the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) what 4-H means to them and why they want to save it from the chopping block. The clubs met Friday at Whispering Pines Park in Inverness, where the Chronicle spoke to some members. Victoria Hedberg, 17, of Crystal River, a junior at Crystal River High School, is vice president and secretary of the Lecanto Outlaws 4-H club, where she has been a member for four years. Her grandfather raises beef cattle on his farm. What about doing away with 4-H? It would be really bad for this county because INSIDE APRIL 16, 2012Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOLUME 117 ISSUE 253 50 CITRUS COUNTY2-5-6-3: League-leading Dodgers turn triple play vs. Padres /B2 LOCAL NEWS:FundraiserCREST students craft bracelets to help buy the school playground equipment./ Page A3 LOCAL NEWS:Home burnsA homeowners dogs dies when the home burns Saturday in Hernando./ Page A4www.chronicleonline.com NATIONAL NEWS:Deadly stormResidents dig out after tornadoes hit the Midwest./Page A12 INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial..................A10 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B8 ONLINE POLL:Your choice?Are you willing to pay about $50 more a year to avoid cuts in county government services?

The bad news is you still must file taxes. Traditionally, taxes must be filed by April 15. But this year April 15 fell on a Sunday, and April 16 is a holiday in Washington, D.C, called Emancipation Day, observed for when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act in 1862. As the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) treats Emancipation Day as a federal holiday, the deadline to file income taxes had to be put back to April 17. Tuesday is the day when all 2011 federal income tax returns, payments or extension requests must be made. According to the IRS, 98.9 million people already have filed. Those who havent will avoid late-filing penalties if they file either their income tax return or a request for a tax-filing extension by midnight Tuesday. The late-filing penalty, normally 5 percent per month based on the unpaid balance, applies to returns filed after the deadline. Taxpayers should file, even if they cant pay the full amount due.

No more checks in 2013 Dont wait for Social Security payment to come via mailSTEPHENOHLEMACHER Associated PressWASHINGTON Starting next year, the check will no longer be in the mail for millions of people who receive Social Security and other government benefits. The federal government, which issues 73 million payments a month, is phasing out paper checks for all benefit programs, requiring people to get payments electronically, either through direct deposit or a debit card for those without a bank account. The changes will affect people who get Social Security, veterans benefits, railroad pensions and federal disability payments. Tax refunds are exempt, but the Internal Revenue Service encourages taxpayers to get refunds electronically by processing those refunds faster than paper checks. About 90 percent of people who receive federal benefits already get their payments electronically, the Treasury Department says. New beneficiaries were required to get payments electronically starting last year, and with a few exceptions, the rest will have to make the switch by March 2013. Its just that natural progression of moving to how people are used to receiving their funds, said Walt Henderson, director of the Treasury Departments electronic funds transfer division.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER City officials have unveiled a broad outline of their fiveyear general fund budget projections and one thing remains constant property taxes will remain at 3.8 mills, the rollback rate. A mill is equal to $1 of tax for each $1,000 of assessment. During a workshop earlier in the week, City Manager Andy Houston revealed property values have dropped five percent in the past year and the same value is projected through 2017. The economy is still not where we thought it would be by now, Houston said. He said despite disappointment with the rate of the recovery and reduced revenues, city residents can expect the same level of services from officials. We are not expecting to cut any of our services. We may delay or adjust a couple of our projects, but that is something we have yet to identify, Houston said. He said the city has not increased sewer or water rates in three years, but may or may not have to look at a slight rate increase. Nothing is clear yet, but even if we increase those rates it will be pretty minor, he said. Houston said, next year, the city will conduct a rate study when the new sewer line customers come on board. The citys 2012 expenditure budget is $4,199.506, but the revenue budget is $4,105,790 with a $93,716 difference. Houston said any shortfall could be plugged with the transfer of general fund reserve funds into the capital improvement projects funds. Andy HoustonCrystal River city manager.

they try to get the youth more involved in things, but if they are going to take away something that is a big part of our county, how are we supposed to be involved? Victoria asked. Shutting down the extension services and 4-H would greatly impact the annual Citrus County Fair. Its a big part of the fair, Victoria said. If they took 4H away, the fair would just be a carnival. I think thats boring because I enjoy the showing part and working with animals. Victoria shows steers and heifers at the fair. After she graduates, she plans to attend the University of Florida, where she might major in an agriculturerelated field. Victorias father, Buck Hedburg, said he would attend the next budget hearing April 24. My whole family will be there, Hedburg said. I just want to know why do away with 4-H? Its really upsetting. Its a big part of Citrus County, Victoria said. Chrissy Uzar, 18, a home-school student who is a member of Floral City Team Green 4-H club, has been in 4-H for 11 years, starting with its youngest group, Cloverbuds, comprised of the younger brothers and sisters of the Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors. This will be her last year as a 4-H member. Chrissy has gone to the county fair every year since she has been in 4-H and entered everything from a steer to a rabbit. I have entered arts and crafts and pictures into the Youth World, which is actually what I plan on getting involved in this coming up year, Chrissy said. Id like to improve that at the fair, because its my favorite part of the fair. 4-H-ers work on many community service projects. We do a petting zoo for the Floral City Heritage Days and weve done a lot of horse shows and parades, Chrissy said. Weve made Christmas cards and sent them over to the soldiers and to people in nursing homes. Asked about her reaction to the potential elimination of 4-H, Chrissy said: I was very disappointed to hear that because I would say the IFAS (extension services) and 4-H, other than school, is like the main part of learning, and teaching the youth, our future, important things, such as raising animals, keeping records of things and being involved in the community and if they cut that, what are a lot of the kids going to be doing? Us homeschoolers rely on 4-H for a lot of activity and meeting new people. Peter Uzar, 14, and an eight-year member of 4-H, has made the most of 4-H programs, showing all types of livestock. I recently did a steer a month ago (at the county fair), Peter said. I got reserve grand champion. Learning that 4-H might get cut hit him hard. I was mad, very mad. Upset, Peter said. This is like my life! Theyre trying to cut it off. Patricia Uzar, their mother, leader of Floral City Team Green, said she had been involved in 4-H since 1972. I want to see this program continue, Uzar said. 4-H teaches youngsters to take responsibility for projects and complete them, such as raising livestock. They learn social skills with livestock showing, presenting a demonstration to show how something is done and taking part in the annual 4H Tropicana Public Speaking Contest. In addition, 4-H sponsors many types of camps. With the clubs, the 4-H Foundation has a curriculum for any interest project a club would want to pursue. Just about any subject from sewing to green technology can become a project. 4-H also helps youngsters learn about the governing process. Seniors can go to 4H Congress in Tallahassee and learn about legislature by doing it themselves with a mock government.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com. 4-HContinued from Page A1 they can save $269,000 by closing the heated pool during winter months. It is one of several recommendations for budget cuts the commissioners will consider, along with saving programs by increasing the millage to pay for them. Residents say closing the pool would be a mistake. I think it would be terrible, Lorna Mangold of Homosassa said. There are lots of people who use this pool all the time. Mangold pays about $12 for a six-month pass. She and others say they would pay more if it meant saving the pool. The pool pass is efficient too efficient, Mike Babcock, who lives near Dunnellon, said. They could double it, triple it even. Babcock, a retired maintenance supervisor with the Michigan Department of Corrections, said pool exercises have helped his back injury. When I came down here I was pretty much hunched over and had to use a cane, he said. The pool is great for arthritis. I can pretty much walk upright and dont use a cane anymore. Residents say the pool doesnt get enough use. We need more people to participate in this pool, Babcock said. This is a terrific service. In the 2010-11 fiscal year, from Oct. 1 through Sept. 31, officials said users visited the pool 41,059 times. From January to March this year, about 6,700 people used the pool. The average visit in March was 108 per day, county spokeswoman Lindsay Ubinas said. Babcock and a friend, Sharon Schiffer, plan to attend the countys budget workshop April 24. Apparently, they are not the only ones. Faced with numerous emails and phone calls, county commissioners are expected this week to move the 5 p.m. April 24 workshop from the courthouse to the Citrus County Auditorium to handle the crowd. Schiffer, who lives in Beverly Hills, said the pool has become a place to meet new friends. She agreed with Babcock, however, it is under used. When you hear people who have been coming here for years saying this is the best kept secret in Citrus County, she said, thats a problem.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.A2MONDAY, APRIL16, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FOR SUBSCRIBERS ONLY FOR SUBSCRIBERS ONLY FOR SUBSCRIBERS ONLY ASK ABOUT EZ PAY!

STATE& LOCAL Page A3MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE In 1999, Destinys Child sang, Say my name, say my name. To that I say, I would if I could remember it. The truth is, I am terrible at remembering names, sometimes even the names of people Ive known for years. I mean, after three years of talking to someone, I cant just all of a sudden ask, What did you say your name was? Its embarrassing and I feel Im disrespectful when I cant remember their names. I know Im not alone either. A Google search of how to remember names called up 955,000 results. Its a common source of woe for lots of people maybe even you. Fortunately, I recently remembered the name of a local memory expert, Joe Ponds of a program called Memory College. Hes also the pastor of Citrus Ridge Bible Church in Beverly Hills. I met Dr. Ponds in 2002 when he was introducing a scripture memory program at his church. (Note: He will offer a similar program at 6:15 p.m. Sunday, May 6, at Riverside Christian Fellowship on State Road 200 in Hernando.) Back then, when he introduced himself he said, Ponds, P-O-N-DS. Its spelled like the cold cream without an apostrophe. Ive never forgotten his name. However, I do forget almost everyone elses, so I made an appointment to see Ponds last week to ask him for some tips to improve my memory, at least when it comes to remembering names. He admitted at one time he, too, forgot peoples names seconds after he was introduced. Then when he was in the Coast Guard, he served as protocol officer to the commandant, a four-star admiral, who entertained lots of important people at receptions. Ponds job was to greet the people coming in and whisper their names to the admirals aide, who would whisper it to the admiral so he could act like, of course, he knew who these people were Ponds had to get the names right. He got himself a memory isometrics book and taught himself how to remember things lists and passages in books and facts and numbers. He could sit through a lecture and not take notes yet still remember what the speaker said. He has since developed courses, classes and seminars that hes taught all over the place. His The Right Stuff Project has been used at the University of Central Florida. Currently, he is working on a memory skills conference with Jon Keith The Memory Trainer this summer at a Disneyworld resort, mainly for teachers so they can train their students to remember stuff. Ponds graciously agreed to give me a quick crash course in remembering peoples names. It can be condensed into five steps: Hear it As Ponds said, you cant remember what you dont hear, so make sure when people tell you their names you pay attention. Ask them to repeat it if you need to and then say it out loud so you make sure you have it correct. Spell it Amy, is that A-M-Y? Oh, its A-I-M-E-E. That gives you another opportunity to make sure you heard it correctly and imprints the name in your brain. Comment on it Mathilda, is that a family name? Kennedy are you related to the Kennedys of Massachusetts? Again, you want to use the persons name and attempt to associate it with something that will help you remember it. The reason I remember Joe Ponds name is the bit about the cold cream. Use it When appropriate, use the name in your conversation. Its a sneaky form of repetition. Say it as youre leaving Once again, youre imprinting it on your brain, plus it will make people feel like youre interested in them. Ponds said the most important memory tip is simple: Pay attention. When you meet someone, dont think about who else is in the room or what youre going to fix for dinner or whats next on your to-do list. That goes for remembering where you parked your car and where you put your keys, too. Slow down, take your time, observe details of your surroundings. Keep your keys in the same place every day, park in the same row at the market. Write things down. Use mnemonics to remember lists (HOMES to remember the names of the Great Lakes Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior). To contact Joe Ponds, email him at drjoe@memorycollege.com, call 352-746-1068 or visit www. memorycollege.com. Is there stuff you want to know about? Have stuff you think people should know? Email your ideas to nkennedy@chronicle online.com for consideration. Glad to meet you what was your name? Nancy KennedySTUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCitrus County Sheriffs Office investigators are employing a new tack to cleanse county corner store shelves of a oncelegitimate cluster of drugs. The synthetic cannabinoids known variously as K2, Spice Gold and bath salts are now illicit in Florida. Possession of the items can bring a felony charge. However, instead of raiding stores that sold the deadly, noxious drugs and arresting the sellers, CCSO personnel are making it a teachable moment. Initially, patrol, the Tactical Impact Unit, as well as other facets of the agency went out to inform the stores about the newest law and the illegalities, Tactical Impact Unit Sgt. Justin Ferrara said. The majority of the stores (was) extremely forthcoming with the products and had lots of questions, but in the end easily turned over to our agency these items they believed were in violation. I think the shock of the law being newly enacted was the biggest hurdle, but each store was provided with documentation to answer many of their questions, Ferrara added. The Florida Legislature passed a law banning the drugs and the governor signed it March 23. Ferrara said the law bans more than 90 different chemicals used in the manufacture of the spraylike material used on the incense-like faux marijuana and other products which are marked clearly not for consumption. But, consume is what many, especially young people, have done. And it becomes highly addictive. The substance got national attention when Hollywood actress Demi Moore was reported to have smoked the same incense-type drug before suffering seizures and being hospitalized earlier in the year. Ferrara said the drugs previously called legal marijuana can cause hallucination, paranoia and temporary psychosis. The road to the new laws has been difficult. Drug manufacturers have been involved in a cat-and-mouse game with law enforcement, which has been at the forefront of advocacy to ban the chemicals. Officials said each time they came up with a host of chemicals to ban, manufacturers find new ones to replace them with. Since there is so much money to (be) made, they are going to create new formulations of similar products not restricted, Ferrara said. The lawmakers are already aware of this and are trying to create new legislation which will hit these items. The dreadful truth is the companies will create new products not being regulated and they will hit the shelves, he added. Ferrara also fears the role of the Internet for addicts and sellers in trying to get around the law. He urges parents and friends of addicts to be vigilant and look for signs. If they (kids or even adults) are caught smoking anything that is not a cigarette or cigar, it is a good sign for parents to look out for. Ferrara said. The packaging could say glass cleaner, plant food or a variety of other things, but these items are normally sold is small quantities, like a gram or two. They will also have a variety of different names associated with them, but in small quantities. The example of glass cleaner was sold in a small thimble-like vial in powder form, which clearly was not any form of glass cleaner. He said now that law enforcement has made the rounds to every store in the county and conducted educational sessions, they will give it time and return to see what has changed. The sale of these items is a felony, the possession of more than 3 grams is a felony and the possession of any powder form of these items is a felony, Ferrara said. If someone possess less than 3 grams of these items, it is a misdemeanor. The one good thing is that when someone smokes these items out of a pipe or a bong, that is not considered paraphernalia which could result in an additional charge. Store owners learn of drugs now banned Businesses given chance to turn in illegal items The majority of the stores (was) extremely forthcoming.Sgt. Justin FerraraTactical Impact Unit. NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterLECANTO For students at CREST Citrus Resource for Exceptional Students in Transition a playground is more than just a place to play. For the mentally and physically challenged children whose ages range from babies to 22-year-old young adults, the playground is a big part of their therapy and education, helping them learn social skills and how to interact appropriately with other people. However, for years, the playground has been inadequate. For the past two years, the school has been actively fundraising toward their goal of $296,000 for their ultimate dream playground. Weve spent two years working on this, but this year were more organized and focused, said Kelly Daugherty, a teacher who works with students ages 16 to 18. They have sold Yankee candles and had two spaghetti dinners at the American Legion Post 155 in Crystal River. Their most recent project, which involves the students, is making and selling bracelets. Made from soda can pop tops and grosgrain ribbon or beads strung on leather strips, CREST brought in $750 from donations for two days at the Manatee Festival. Aside from the much-needed money for playground equipment, making the bracelets gives students the opportunity to contribute. One day last week, 19-year-old Alyssa Ritchey strung beads. A CREST transition student who works a half-day in the community, she spends her afternoons at the school. Were making bracelets, she said. I do a little (bead) and a big one and a little one. Meanwhile, students Heather Schurick and Michael Stephens sorted and counted pop tops 26 for one size, between 31 and 35 for larger sizes and 18 to 25 for childrens sizes. They pressed down any sharp edges on the top tops and put them in sandwich bags. Daugherty said they have gotten pop tops donated from area schools and even a man from Clearwater whom they met while selling the bracelets at the Manatee Festival. Also, a Spring Hill couple, who makes and sells bracelets of their own, donate a dollar from each bracelet they sell to the CREST playground project. So far, the school has raised $16,307. Crystal River Rotary and Kings Bay Rotary wrote a grant for us for $5,000 for five new swings that are already up, Daugherty said. She said several organizations in the community have offered their support, which is much appreciated. To look at the big lump sum we need, its an overwhelming number, she said. So, we know realistically its going to be done in phases or even by individual pieces. But people are getting behind us.

Meadowcrest Blvd. Crystal River, FL 34429 Blvd. Hernando home lost to flames CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterA house at 7105 N. Comanche Terrace, Hernando, was lost Saturday to a fire. Owner Blu F. Allred and his family were not at home when the fire broke out at the rural residence. According to the incident report, at 4:27 p.m. Citrus County Fire Rescue was called to respond to a possible brush fire in the area of East Grantham Court and East Turkey Trail in Hernando, where the structure fire was discovered instead. Engine 131 from Beverly Hills arrived on scene at 4:46 p.m. to find a 1,400-square-foot single-family dwelling engulfed in flames. Because of the extent of the fire, a defensive strategy was advised. A tanker shuttle was used to supply water for extinguishment because of the lack of hydrants in the neighborhood. In all, six engines, three tankers, one squad and the battalion chief were assigned to the incident. The fire was brought under control at 5:07 p.m. The state fire marshal went to the scene to investigate the cause of the fire, which he declared unintentional. Damage to the house and contents was estimated at $145,000. The house was insured. American Red Cross has assisted the family.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916.

payments made after that date. The current interest rate is 3 percent per year, compounded daily, and the late-payment penalty is normally 0.5 percent per month.

E-pay options include: Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) This free service gives taxpayers a safe and convenient way to pay individual and business taxes by phone or online. To enroll or for information, call 800-316-6541 or visit www.eftps.gov. Electronic funds withdrawal. E-file and e-pay in a single step. Credit or debit card. Both paper and electronic filers can pay their taxes by phone or online through any of several authorized credit and debit card processors.

The U.S. Postal Service offers advice for tax filers to make the deadline. Post offices will be open regular hours. Customers can enter their ZIP code to find the hours of operation for their local post office on usps.com at https://tools.usps.com/ go/POLocatorAction_input or by calling 800-ASK-USPS. The IRS accepts the FirstClass postmark as proof of filing by April 17. The Postal Service offers flexible products and services for use when mailing federal and/or state returns. These mailing options apply a postmark to returns: Express Mail Service: Tax returns can be delivered to many locations the next day guaranteed or money back. Express Mail includes online tracking and signature at delivery. Priority Mail Service: Tax returns are delivered in an average of two to three days. First-Class Mail Service: First-Class Mail is a quick, reliable and economical way to mail returns. Using proof of mailing services provides peace of mind and proof that a tax return was mailed, verify that it was delivered, or both. Certificate of Mailing Service: Provides a receipt as evidence that the tax return was mailed. Certified Mail Service: A Certified Mail receipt proves the tax return was mailed and gives online access to verify the date and time of delivery. Return Receipt: This receipt verifies both mailing and delivery, returning a postcard signed by the person who received the tax return. The Postal Service provides these tips for income tax filers mailing returns: If filing on April 17, mail early in the day at any Post Office. Be sure to verify Post Office hours of operation. If depositing returns in a collection box on April 17, double-check the pickup schedule on the collection box. To ensure getting the April 17 postmark, deposit returns before the last scheduled pickup time. Affix the correct postage. Some returns include many forms and require additional postage. IRS does not pay postage due and will return items to sender. When possible, use the envelope provided by the IRS and be sure to include a return address. If the envelope provided by the IRS is unavailable, be sure to verify the IRS address where returns should be mailed. Those who cant file by midnight Tuesday may qualify for one of several relief programs, including those recently expanded under the IRS Fresh Start initiative. These include the following: Most people can set up a payment agreement with the IRS online in a matter of minutes. Those who owe $50,000 or less in combined tax, penalties and interest can use the online payment agreement to set up a monthly payment agreement for up to six years. Taxpayers can choose this option even if they have not yet received a bill or notice from the IRS. Alternatively, taxpayers can request a payment agreement by filing Form 9465-FS. This form can be downloaded from irs.gov and mailed along with a tax return, bill or notice. Most unemployed filers and self-employed individuals whose business income dropped substantially can apply for a six-month extension of time to pay. Eligible taxpayers will not be charged a late-payment penalty if they pay any tax, penalty and interest due by Oct. 15, 2012. Taxpayers qualify if they were unemployed for any 30-day period between Jan. 1, 2011, and April 17, 2012. Self-employed people qualify if their business income declined 25 percent or more in 2011, due to the economy. Income limits and other special rules apply. Apply using Form 1127-A. Some struggling taxpayers may qualify for an offerin-compromise. This is an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS that settles the taxpayers tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed. Generally, an offer will not be accepted if the IRS believes the liability can be paid in full as a lump sum or through a payment agreement. The IRS looks at the taxpayers income and assets to make a determination regarding the taxpayers ability to pay.

But that doesnt matter to either party. Their efforts, including a Senate vote Monday on President Barack Obamas Buffett rule proposal to impose a minimum tax on the wealthiest Americans, are more about pontificating than legislating, aimed at voters in Novembers congressional and presidential elections. Neutral economists say neither bill would do much for the economy or job creation. Some political professionals are equally unimpressed with their potential impact on voters. Undaunted, congressional leaders hope to maximize public attention by timing both roll calls with an eye to Tuesday, the annual deadline for filing income taxes with the Internal Revenue Service. Senate Democrats later this year may hold additional votes tied to the Buffett rule, using his idea of a minimum 30 percent tax on top earners to raise money for proposal to create jobs and keep student loan rates from rising. With trillions in tax cuts dating from President George W. Bush set to expire in January, House and Senate leaders are considering campaign-season votes on extending popular parts of those reductions, such as preventing the $1,000 child tax credit from being cut in half. In addition, Obama and his allbut-certain GOP opponent, Mitt Romney, will spend much of the campaign promoting their tax blueprints as antidotes to an economy still struggling to generate jobs. Besides raising taxes on the wealthy, Obama would boost levies on many U.S. companies that do business overseas, and on the oil and gas industry. The new money would help lower individual and corporate rates and reduce federal deficits. Romney would continue all Bush tax cuts, including those for the richest people, while trimming rates and eliminating estate taxes. If this were a heavyweight fight, were still in the first round where both sides are kind of feeling each other out, Republican consultant Mike McKenna said about the votes in the week ahead. On Monday, as Congress returns from a two-week spring break, the Democratic-led Senate expect votes on a Buffett rule measure by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I. It would slap a minimum 30 percent income tax on people making more than $2 million yearly and phase in higher taxes for those earning at least $1 million. Republicans are sure to block the bill, nicknamed for billionaire Warren Buffett, who backs higher taxes on the rich.

Associated PressWASHINGTON A Secret Service scandal involving prostitutes in Colombia that has overshadowed President Barack Obamas diplomatic mission in Latin American probably isnt an isolated incident, and the agency should ensure it doesnt happen again, a leading House Republican said Sunday California Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of a House investigative panel, said he wasnt certain whether Congress would conduct hearings on the misconduct. But lawmakers will be looking over the shoulder of the Secret Service, he said, to make sure that the agencys method for training and screening agents isnt endangering the nations VIPs. Things like this dont happen once if they didnt happen before, said Issa, who leads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Eleven Secret Service employees are on administrative leave for misconduct and five service members assigned to work with the agency are confined to quarters amid allegations that a group of personnel partied with prostitutes before Obama arrived in Colombia for the weekend summit with Latin American leaders. Issa spoke on CBS Face the Nation. Henderson said electronic payments are safer and more efficient than paper checks; in 2010, more than 540,000 federal benefit checks were reported lost or stolen. The switch will save the government about $120 million a year. Social Security will save $1 billion over the next decade, according to the Treasury Department. You think of that paper check floating out there in the delivery system, with personal information on it, its much more susceptible to fraud versus an electronic payment, Henderson said. Advocates for seniors say they understand the governments desire to cut costs and take advantage of technologies that most workers already use. The food stamp program switched from paper coupons to debit cards in 2004. But they have raised concerns about requiring the switch for older retirees who may not be used to electronic payments. This will affect some very frail elderly people who are living by themselves, many of them, and doing well, but usually within the context of that old paper check that they deposit in the bank, said Web Phillips, a senior policy advisor for the National Committee to Protect Social Security and Medicare. The change has to be handled carefully and with a lot of sensitivity so that there arent people who lose track of a payment or dont understand that they have a card that came in the mail thats the source of their payment, Phillips said. Thats our concern. The switch is mandated by a Treasury rule issued in December 2010. Since then, the department has worked to educate the public. The government has created a website, www.GoDirect.org and a toll-free phone number, 1800-333-1795, people can call for assistance. Treasury acknowledges they have a lot of education to do for people about how these things work, said David Certner, legislative policy director for AARP. Were a bit concerned about how easy its going to be to provide education, particularly for some in this older population who are not familiar with debit cards and dont have bank accounts. Certner said AARP wants the government to make it easier to get an exemption. Under the Treasury rule, current beneficiaries who are 90 and older wont be required to make the switch. People can get a waiver if using a debit card would impose a hardship, but the Treasury Department says those would be extreme, rare circumstances. These waivers are not well publicized on the governments website. There are several million people who receive paper checks today, Certner said. Some of them do it because they have worked out arrangements for them that work. AARP also has concerns about fees associated with the debit cards. The Direct Express cards are issued by Comerica Bank, Treasurys financial agent. Each month, benefit payments are added to the cards, which can be used to make purchases or withdraw cash from ATMs. There are no fees for using the debit card to make purchases. They can be used at any retailer that accepts MasterCard debit cards. If a card is lost or stolen, the beneficiary is protected from unauthorized use as long as the missing card is reported promptly. Cardholders can make one free ATM withdrawal each time a payment is registered in the card. Subsequent withdrawals will cost 90 cents each, and all withdrawals may be subject to fees by the owner of the ATM. The governments switch to electronic payments also comes with a side effect: less business for the U.S. Postal Service, an agency that is already facing big budget problems with the rise of email and electronic bill paying. The private sector has been migrating to electronic payments for years, costing the Postal Service millions of customers, said Alan Robinson, editor of the Postal Journal, a trade publication. Normally, these things happen one customer at a time, Robinson said. In terms of payments, this is probably one of the largest. Samuel Cernek, 85HOMOSASSA Samuel B.

After ad valorem taxes, franchise fees are the second largest source of funds for the city. The five-year-outlook for the citys budget includes reductions to less than $4 million for 2013 and 2014. Estimates put the budget higher than $4 million toward the end of the fiveyear plan when officials expect the economy to be on a more solid footing. Another budget workshop is expected in late May. Following the workshops, Houston expects to present final 2012 budget to the City Council for deliberation and adoption.Chronicle reporter A.B.

Dont toss PittsI was reeling with negative emotion when I read a letter to the editor of March 31 titled No more Pitts. This is Sally (Van Osdell)s opinion, and she has every right to her opinion, as do I. Mr. Leonard Pitts Jr. is a 2004 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. He also received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, The American Society of Newspaper Editors and holds a bachelors degree in English from the University of Southern California. I, for one, have followed his commentary. Yes, Mr. Pitts is a politically aggressive black commentator and, through his voice, helps to spread understanding from his world, the world of people of color. I, for one, look forward to reading his views. Although I may not always agree, Mr. Pitts provides historic knowledge based on empirical research. I find it very rude to criticize the Chroniclefor printing Mr. Pitts articles weekly and requesting they no longer be printed. In Sallys mind, the Chroniclehas stooped to this level what level exactly is that, I wonder? The literary nation must stoop to the same level of theChronicle, as Mr. Pitts is a nationally syndicated commentator. When I moved here, I was very pleased to continue to follow Mr. Pitts voice. It is a free world, as far as I understand, and just because one, two or a small group decides they do not want to see his columns seems unjust to those who enjoy a variety of educated viewpoints from all walks of life. If you dont like it, dont read it; its really as simple as that. Now get on with your life and open your mind; you just might learn something.Carol Herndon Citrus HillsHealth questionsThe mandate already exists. The opponents of the Affordable Care Act argue Congress is overstepping its constitutional authority by mandating a penalty or tax on the person who chooses not to be involved in the commercial transaction (in this case rejecting health insurance), and Congress can do almost anything it wants if this is allowed to pass. What, then, is the distinction between the hidden tax on all paying health insureds due to the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) passed by Congress in 1986? An example is the projected cost in one state of $1,186 per family to subsidize this provision that guarantees treatment for the uninsured. The Kaiser foundation has determined $40.7 billion is uncompensated under Medicare and Medicaid expenses for hospitals. While we may not see an actual tax levy for this expense, those costs are borne by the U.S. taxpayers indirectly through increased hospital charges, medical supplies and doctor fees. It seems to me the hidden costs I currently pay for the benefit of those uninsureds are tantamount to a mandate or tax already! My questions are very basic: No. 1: Why not let the people who actually receive medical services be required to pay for them rather than transfer that cost to taxpayers who pay for their own health plan? No. 2: Why is it unconstitutional to require individuals who wish not to have insurance pay a fee while yet it is constitutional to require me to pay their fee for them?Don Slough InvernessThe good old daysDonald Holcombs letter in the Chronicle, Whose morals? (March 23), was an exaggeration to the Nth degree as to how academics, liberals and progressives think and act concerning moral values. Assuming when Holcomb refers to traditional moral values being cast in stone he is referring to Moses and the Ten Commandments. These rules were written thousands of years ago. If, in fact, Holcomb is going back to the days of the Old Testament, then I must assume he accepts slavery, killing children if they disobey their elders, selling your children in order to pay debts and making war against innocent victims. Yup, those were the good old days of traditional moral values. Today there are 6.5 billion people in the world. More than half the worlds population has never heard of the Christian Bible, and yet these countries have developed ethical systems and religions. So where does morality come from for nations that are not Christians or believe in God? Two places: evolution and secular reasoning. Scientists studying our primate relatives, such as chimpanzees, see evolutionary rudiments of morality; behaviors that look like sympathy, moral disapproval, sharing and altruism. This is exactly what we would expect if human morality, like many other behaviors, is built partly on the genes of our ancestors. Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith once wrote, The modern conservative is engaged in one of mans oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.L.M. Eastman LecantoBig oil controls costI have been reading all the Sound Offs and the editorial page with some people giving their opinion about who is responsible for the rising gas prices. The president cannot control gas prices, nor can the government. When the price of a barrel of oil goes up, the oil companies have to raise the price of gasoline to the dealer. I know because my husband and I had a station in Alabama, then moved to Florida, had one in Clearwater, Largo and Dunedin. When we bought gas at a low price and the oil company called to tell us to go up on the price, we made a few cents, then when we bought it at a high price, they would call and tell us to lower the price, we lost money. So all these people who seem to know what is going on in our country with the high prices, they are mistaken, because I know. We were in that business for more than 35 years. I hope this is read by everyone. The oil companies put the price on gas, period. You wouldnt expect them to deliberately lose money. A lot of people have stock in the oil companies and depend on those checks.Betty L. Smith HomosassaDress modestlyRegarding the front page of the Citrus County Chronicleon March 31, 2012. Whats wrong with this picture (This was a Fair photo)?Moms, do you notice how your young ladies dress? Come on moms, show your girls how to dress modestly. Just because you see others dress immodestly, moms, do your girls need to dress like them? Our blessed mother shows us how to dress. Cover our bodies properly and be good examples for other young ladies. Call the different clothing stores, tell them we want modest dress. We are not sex objects. Notice all types of advertising (in which) they use pictures of immodest clothing or very scantily-dressed women. This is wrong. We want respect. We dont want to be noticed for what we wear, but on our character. Come on, moms and grandmas; show our girls how to dress by our example, too. It starts at home.Shirley Saitta Dunnellon Facts are correctSound Off today (Easter Sunday) the Hot Corner covered gas prices. One caller mentioned me by name and said he would like to know where I was buying gas at $1.80 per gallon in 2008, because he was paying $3.95 per gallon at that time and said I should get my facts straight. I randomly pulled some past receipts. (On) August 25, 2008, I paid $49.64 to fill up at the local QuikMart. (On) July 22, 2009, I paid $46.47 to fill up at the Fruitville Texaco in Sarasota. (On) March 23, 2010, I paid $44.60 to fill up at Cumberland Farms. Last week at Cumberland Farms, I paid over $110 to fill up. In all cases, I fill up when theres about one-eighth of a tank left, so these numbers are relative. So to the caller who didnt have the courage to write a letter and give their name, I suggest you pull some of your old fuel receipts and dont make yourself look foolish by making incorrect statements. As to respect for Obama, respect must be earned, not merely handed out. Respect at all levels of life can only be earned and Barack Obama sure has fallen short of that. I travel to Europe several times each year and Argentina once a year Obama is looked upon as a joke there. You may have your opinion, but please dont state your opinion as if everyone must agree. It doesnt work that way. As to whether I know what I am talking about, I was in upper management (inventory control) of a huge petrochemical company during the so-called Arab Oil Embargo of the early 1970s. We got our feedstocks from the same place the petroleum companies get theirs, so please dont preach to the choir. Next time you wish to voice your comments, concerns etc., have the backbone to write a letter and sign your name. Nobody is going to attack you if you do, but if you do not, your comments cannot really be taken seriously.Harry Cooper HernandoOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, APRIL16, 2012 A9 Citrus County now has Single Stream Recycling R R R E E E C C C Y Y Y C C C L L L I I I N N N G G G D D D R R R O O O P P P O O O F F F F F F Please Please NO garbage NO garbage or trash or trash T h a n k Y o u f o r R e c y c l i n g 000ANU1 It takes less work to do the right thing!

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2012 Jobs in CitrusI would suggest focusing your (County Commission) time and energy on the right issues, and that would be creating jobs for local people right here and now. You will not have to worry about the children and Sheriffs (Office) affairs if the parents wont be able to feed them. In case you dont know this, if the Port of Citrus happens, it will take years before it generates any amount of jobs, much too late for the children and parents. It takes more than a port to put people to work. It also takes the communitys confidence and trust the right thing is being done for the public. Getting involved in the sheriffs (Office)s politics does not make one private sector job.Scott Adams InvernessAutism diagnosisThe New York Timesand theCitrus County Chronicle recently carried an article related to the complicated problem of the diagnosing of autism, which has doubled in the past four years. Army Willingham, author of a book on autism, said That so far no blood test, brain scan, physiological mutations or gene variants can definitively identity what causes it. And many experts would stipulate there are cognitive links of behavior between the brain and behavior. Some autism behavior now given include: schizoid-type thinking, compulsive behavior, being verbose, non communicative, repetitious motions, etc. The group responsible for modifiying the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV is considering changing the 2,027 descriptive behaviors now used to describe the problem to just 11. However, all writers would indicate all children, whether diagnosed with ADS or not, have gaps, i.e., at times and in certain circumstances behavior in ways that present a problem to the environment in which they live. More and more it appears that mental health professionals may be considering the growing up, and even later-life developmental processes, as being responsible for what is sometimes referred to as autism. Putting a diagnostic label on a child should be done with extreme caution for that matter, attempting to call anyone by names of any kind, whether related to their personality and/or behavior should be avoided (except for professional understanding). The important component in interpersonal living is to not find fault, but to find positive personality concepts. If a person has a gap, i.e., behavioral flaw, difficulty or nuance there should be an to attempt to understand what developmental circumstances has led to that alleged deviant behavior, accept that as who he/she is and to assist that person in insightfully over coming it. One who does this might just be diagnosed as a friend.William C. Young Crystal River MARTINDYCKMAN Guest columnistIf the underlying issue werent so serious, it would be great fun watching the Republicans spin on a dime to become passionate defenders of an independent judiciary. Scorn for activist judges has been a staple of the partys playbook ever since it was Earl Warrens Supreme Court. Now that its John Robertss court or should we say Antonin Scalias? and a Democratic president is calling them out, the rhetorical roles have reversed overnight. Wasnt it just a month or so ago Newt Gingrich was proposing to ignore decisions he didnt like and arrest judges who refused to explain them? And where on that occasion was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to decry a fundamental lack of respect for our system of checks and balances? Lets agree, however: President Obama misspoke, as even he has acknowledged. It would indeed be one of the worst decisions in history for the court to overturn or eviscerate the health care act because Scalia thinks it ought to have been written differently. But it would be neither unprecedented nor extraordinary. The court has been overturning acts of Congress since Marbury v. Madison in 1803 and state laws since McCulloch v. Maryland in 1819. The Constitution is what the court says it is, even when the court is wrong. Some of those decisions, however, have been not merely wrong but also heedless of the vital principle of judicial restraint. Courts arent supposed to go out looking for fights to pick or to rule more broadly than necessary to resolve the cases brought to them. Above all, they should respect the policy decisions of the elected branches of government unless they are convincingly unconstitutional. As Chief Justice William Rehnquist once said, Conclusory second-guessing of difficult legislative decisions is not an attractive way for federal courts to engage in judicial review. Quoting those words in the current New Yorker, columnist Jeffrey Toobin observed the Roberts court acts as a sort of supra-legislature, dismissing laws that conflict with its own political agenda. It did so most notoriously in the Citizens United case two years ago, which unleashed corporations to spend directly, without limit, to elect their friends and defeat their foes. That wasnt even an issue in the case before the court, so the majority simply changed it to accomplish their political goals. The court will be legislating again if it savages the Affordable Health Care Act. The unpopular mandate to purchase health insurance of your choice was an honest, essential attempt to compromise with the powerful lobbies resisting a one-size-fits-all single-payer plan like Social Security and Medicare. Comprehensive health care cant work on a strictly voluntary basis any better than Medicare could. For the Supreme Court to reject that compromise could lead, ironically, to single-payer eventually becoming a reality. On the other hand, the courts opinion conceivably could undercut even Social Security and Medicare, and that truly would be monstrous. Obamas pre-emptory strike on the court is a timely reminder of one of the critical issues at stake when we vote for president. We elect a new one every four to eight years, but their Supreme Court appointees serve for life. Andrew Jackson, who was devoted to the Union, nearly destroyed it by appointing Roger Taney, the chief justice whose Dred Scott opinion a classic example of judicial overreach brought on the Civil War by ruling Congress was powerless to prohibit slavery in any territory. The two Presidents Bush campaigned as centrists but gave us radical activist justices whose promises to practice judicial restraint have so far proved false, and who may yet destroy what respect remains for their court. We know what President Obama expects of his Supreme Court appointees. They have practiced judicial restraint, if regrettably mainly in dissent. What sort of people would Mitt Romney nominate?Martin Dyckman is a retired associate editor of the newspaper formerly known as the St. Petersburg Times. That judges of important causes should hold office for life is a disputable thing, for the mind grows old as well as the body.Aristotle, Politics, 4th century B.C.

Since the framers creation of a republican form of government with the people as the ultimate repository of sovereign power, grassroots involvement of ordinary citizens in consensus policymaking has been a linchpin of our representative democracy. Key to the vitality of grassroots involvement is two-way communication between government officials and the constituents they serve, especially at the local government level. The Citrus County Council (CCC), incorporated in 1982 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan consortium of civic clubs, homeowners associations and environmental groups, has been a major conduit for twoway communication between Citrus County government and its citizens for three decades. Nevertheless, county government recently took a step back from this two-way communication conduit when its Department of Planning and Development Services changed the time of its staff meeting with the result that it is no longer able to send a representative to the CCCs monthly meetings. In view of the CCCs three-decade role in fostering communication between county government and its citizens, the CCCs disappointment in this step back is understandable. Although the Department of Planning and Development Services staff meeting conflict and reduced staffing may make it difficult to send a representative to each of the CCCs monthly meetings, the departments mission of guiding the growth and development of our county and the CCCs role as a public sounding board make continued face-to-face communication between the two imperative. Accordingly, both parties are encouraged to work out a schedule that keeps the lines of two-way communication open. With open lines of communication, the department can best accomplish its mission of shaping Citrus Countys developmental growth by gaining the support of the citizens it serves and is accountable to. THE ISSUE:Communication between county government and Citrus County Council. OUR OPINION:Keep the lines open.

It wasnt long ago the words moderate and compromise were considered to be a good thing. Now the candidates are fighting over who is more conservative. I wonder if the time will ever come when the two parties will work together for the people and not the party.GOP off deep endAs I read Leonard Pitts article which I usually hate to read anyway on Monday morning (April 9), about the man who was getting out of the Republican Party, that hit home because Im thinking the same thing. The Republican Party, the Democratic Party, the only difference in them is the way they speak. And talk is cheap. And he said the Democratic Party hasnt fell off the deep end yet. Were $17 trillion in debt and hes going to try to tell me that one party, because its constituents get welfare money, has not fell off the deep end? Thats about the stupidest thing Ive ever heard a man say.Cant afford healthIts very sad in this economy when a person is working 40 hours a week for a paycheck that barely pays her bills and she ends up in the hospital on a medication they want to charge her $7,000 for, and this is from the pharmacy.

Egypts Islamists set back in raceCAIRO The elimination of three of the main contenders from Egypts presidential race has eroded the chances of an Islamist candidate to seize the countrys top job. The Muslim Brotherhood, the most powerful political group to emerge from last years uprising, finds itself increasingly in a bind. It is unable to exercise the power of its electoral wins so far and is jostling with the ruling generals and liberal and secular groups that drove the uprising but now fear religious domination of politics. The Brotherhood was outraged over the election commissions decision late Saturday to bar its chief strategist and leading choice for president, Khairat elShater. It threatened more protests like a large march on Friday that drew tens of thousands of Islamists to Cairos Tahrir Square. This is a political decision not a legal one, said Murad Mohammed Ali, a spokesman for el-Shaters campaign. From wire reports World BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Taliban insurgents struck the heart of the Afghan capital and three eastern cities Sunday, firing automatic weapons and grenades at embassies, government buildings and NATO bases as they launched the spring fighting season with the boldest and most complex assault in years. The multi-pronged attacks show the Taliban and their allies are far from beaten and underscored the security challenge facing government forces as U.S. and NATO forces draw down. The majority of international combat troops are scheduled to leave by the end of 2014. The first blasts rocked the diplomatic quarter of Kabul on Sunday, and soon gunshots and rocket-propelled grenade fire were ringing out across the city. Smoke rose over the skyline as sirens wailed. A loudspeaker at the U.S. Embassy could be heard barking: Duck and cover. Move away from the windows. One police officer and 17 militants were killed in the attacks, the most widespread in the Afghan capital since an assault on the U.S. Embassy and NATO headquarters last September blamed on the Haqqani network, a Pakistan-based insurgent group allied with the Taliban. Fighting continued more than 12 hours after the first blasts, with explosions echoing into the night. The sophistication and firepower of the latest strikes, as well as the high-profile government and foreign targets, bore the hallmarks of the attack last fall. As in the earlier attack, armed insurgents took over half-built buildings Sunday and used them to fire down on nearby embassies and bases. In the streets of Kabuls Wazir Akbar Khan neighborhood, where a NATO base and a number of embassies, including the U.S. Embassy, are located, residents scrambled for cover as gunfire rained down from all directions. I saw two Land Cruisers pull up and two militants jumped from the car, said Mohammad Zakar, a 27-yearold mechanic who has a shop near the building commandeered by the militants. They opened fire on an intelligence service guard ... They also fired and killed an Afghan policeman and then they jumped into the building. All the shops closed. I ran away. Across town at the parliament building, insurgents climbed to the upper floors of another empty building and fired on lawmakers below. A few legislators climbed on the roof of the parliament and fired back. Taliban attack Aghan capital, 3 other cities One policeman, 17 militants died Truce in Syria eroding Associated PressBEIRUT Syrias 4day-old cease-fire appeared to be quickly eroding Sunday, with regime forces firing dozens of tank shells and mortar rounds at neighborhoods in the opposition stronghold of Homs, hours before the arrival of a first team of U.N. truce monitors. Even though the overall level of violence has dropped, escalating regime attacks over the weekend raised new doubts about President Bashar Assads commitment to a plan by special envoy Kofi Annan to end 13 months of violence and launch talks on Syrias political future. Assad accepted the truce deal at the prodding of his main ally, Russia, but his compliance has been limited. He has halted shelling of rebel-held neighborhoods, with the exception of Homs, but ignored calls to pull troops out of urban centers, apparently for fear of losing control over a country his family has ruled for four decades. Rebel fighters have also kept up attacks, including shooting ambushes. The international community hopes U.N. observers will be able to stabilize the cease-fire, which formally took effect Thursday. A six-member advance team of U.N. observers headed to Damascus on Sunday, a day after an unanimous U.N. Security Council approved such a mission. A larger team of 250 observers requires more negotiations between the U.N. and the Syrian government next week. U.N. Secretary-General Bank Ki-moon expressed serious concern at the Syrian governments shelling of Homs and said the whole world is watching with skeptical eyes whether the cease-fire can be sustained. It is important absolutely important that the Syrian government should take all the measures to keep this cessation of violence, he told reporters in Brussels after meeting Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo. I urge again in the strongest possible terms that this cessation of violence must be kept. Ban said he had in-depth discussions Saturday with Annan in Geneva and expressed hope once the full monitoring team is on the ground there will be calm and stability and peace without any violence. First team of U.N. monitors enter country Associated PressWOODWARD, Okla. The television was tuned to forecasters dire warnings of an impending storm when Greg Tomlyanobich heard a short burst from a tornado siren blare after midnight Sunday. Then silence. Then rumbling. The 52-year-old quickly grabbed his wife and grandson, hurrying them into the emergency cellar as debris whirled around their heads at their mobile home park in northwest Oklahoma. They huddled inside with about 20 other people before the tornado among dozens that swept across the nations midsection during the weekend roared across the ground above, ripping homes from their foundations. It scared the hell out of me, Tomlyanobich said. The storm killed five people, including three children, and injured more than two dozen in Woodward, a town about 140 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. But it was the only tornado that caused fatalities. Many of the touchdowns raked harmlessly across isolated stretches of rural Kansas, and though communities there and in Iowa were hit, residents and officials credited days of urgent warnings from forecasters for saving lives. When Tomlyanobich emerged from the underground shelter after the storm subsided, he saw a scattered trail of destruction: home insulation, siding and splintered wood where homes once stood; trees stripped of leaves, clothing and metal precariously hanging from limbs. It just makes you sick to your stomach. Just look at that mangled steel, he said Sunday, pointing to what appeared to be a giant twisted steel frame that had landed in the middle of the mobile home park, which is surrounded by rural land dotted with oil field equipment. The storms were part of an exceptionally strong system tracked by the National Weather Services Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., which specializes in tornado forecasting. The center took the unusual step of warning people more than 24 hours in advance of a possible high-end, life-threatening event. Center spokesman Chris Vaccaro said the weather service received at least 120 reports of tornadoes by dawn Sunday and was working to confirm how many actually touched down. The storm system was weakening as it crawled east and additional tornadoes were unlikely, though forecasters warned that strong thunderstorms could be expected as far east as Michigan. Woodward suffered the worst of the destruction from the storms, which also struck in Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. Woodward City Manager Alan Riffel said 89 homes and 13 businesses were destroyed, and bloodied survivors in the 12,000-resident town emerged to find flipped cars and smashed trailers. Retired firefighter Marty Logan said he spotted the tornado when it knocked down power lines, causing flashes of light, and saw a radio towers blinking lights go black. He later saw a man emerge from a twisted, wrecked sport utility vehicle that had been tossed along the side of the road. Surveying the damage Residents dig out after tornadoes hit; warnings saved lives Gaps found in nursing homes disaster plans Associated PressWASHINGTON Tornado, hurricane or flood, nursing homes are woefully unprepared to protect frail residents in a natural disaster, government investigators say. Government-required emergency plans often lack specific steps such as coordinating with local authorities, notifying relatives or even pinning name tags and medication lists to residents in an evacuation, according to the findings. That means the plans may not be worth the paper theyre written on. Nearly seven years after Hurricane Katrinas devastation of New Orleans exposed the vulnerability of nursing homes, serious shortcomings persist. We identified many of the same gaps in nursing home preparedness and response, investigators from the inspector generals office of the Department of Health and Human Services wrote in the report being released Monday. Emergency plans lacked relevant information. ... Nursing homes faced challenges with unreliable transportation contracts, lack of collaboration with local emergency management, and residents who developed health problems. The report recommends Medicare and Medicaid add specific emergency planning and training steps to the existing federal requirement that nursing homes have a disaster plan. Many such steps are now in nonbinding federal guidelines that investigators found were disregarded. In a written response, Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner agreed with the recommendation, but gave no timetable for carrying it out. Nationally, more than 3 million people spent at least some time in a nursing home during 2009, according to the latest available data. Nearly 40 percent of them, 1.2 million, were in the top 10 disaster-prone states. The typical nursing home resident is a woman in her 80s or older, dealing with physical and mental limitations that leave her dependent on others for help with basic daily activities. Linda Dupree, left, is hugged Sunday by an unidentified member of the Christian Motorcycle Association, following a deadly tornado in Woodward, Okla.

From Dodger Stadium to Turner Field, there were celebrations. Players, managers, coaches and umpires all wore No. 42 on Jackie Robinson Day to remember the 65th anniversary of the day he broke baseballs color barrier. Robinsons daughter, Sharon, took part in an event with Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson and Los Angeles Angels pitcher LaTroy Hawkins at a youth ballfield in the Bronx. Ralph Branca, Robinsons former teammate on the Brooklyn Dodgers, threw out the first ball at Fenway Park. Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp tweeted: Thank u Jackie Robinson!!! The Robinson family was set to take part in a ceremony Sunday night before the Angels played at Yankee Stadium.9 months later, Clemens back for perjury retrialWASHINGTON Jury selection is set to begin Monday in the retrial of Roger Clemens. Clemens is back in court nine months after the first attempt by the government to prove that the seventime Cy Young Award winner lied when he denied using steroids and human growth hormone before Congress in 2008. Only two witnesses had been called last July when U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton declared a mistrial. Walton said that prosecutors had made a gaffe that even a first-year law student wouldnt make. The second is expected to last four weeks to six weeks. U.S. sentencing guidelines suggest Clemens would receive up to 15 months to 21 months in prison if found guilty on all six counts.Western Kentucky football players shot outside of barBOWLING GREEN, Ky. Two Western Kentucky football players are recovering after being wounded by gunshots outside a bar. A statement from the schools athletic department said defensive lineman Tevin Holliman and defensive back Ricardo Singh were each hit once, and their wounds werent life-threatening. The shooting early Sunday outside the Lava Lounge in Bowling Green happened hours after the team played its annual spring game. Bowling Green Police spokesman Ronnie Ward said it appears someone shot into a crowd outside the bar and struck the players. He said an officer driving by the scene heard gunshots and called for backup at 12:39 a.m. Holliman is a sophomore from Tucker, Ga., and Singh is a freshman from Auburndale, Fla.From wire reports Associated PressBlue Jays players wear No. 42 to honor Jackie Robinson on Sunday as they line up for the national anthems before playing the Baltimore Orioles in Toronto. Roger Clemens Associated PressBOSTON David Ortiz doubled in the go-ahead run for his seventh consecutivehit and the Boston Red Sox won their third straight game over the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-4 on Sunday. Boston, on a tear since a season-opening 1-5 road trip, can complete a series sweep in Mondays traditional Patriots Day game that starts at 11:05 a.m. Last year the Red Sox were just 2-7 at home against the Rays. Ortiz, who signed a oneyear contract in the offseason, is off to one of the best starts of his career. Hes 16 for 36 in nine games in April, a month in which he has struggled in recent years. He had 20 hits in 22 April games in 2009, eight in 16 games in 2010 and 23 in 25 games in 2011. But on Sunday with the score tied 4-all in the sixth inning, he doubled home Kevin Youkilis, who had walked. Ortiz went 4 for 5 with a homer and five RBIs in Saturdays 13-5 win. Then he doubled, singled and doubled in his first three at-bats on Sunday before grounding out to first to end the seventh. Also in the seventh, Mike Aviles hit his second solo homer in two days from the leadoff spot. He moved there for the first time this season on Saturday when Jacoby Ellsbury went on the 15-day disabled list with a partially separated right shoulder. Vicente Padilla (1-0) pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings after Felix Doubront left the game after allowing Luke Scotts lead-off homer that tied it in the sixth. Alfredo Aceves pitched the ninth for his second save in three opportunities. C.J. RISAK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER A prediction made by the guy whos won more Presential Tournaments than anyone proved accurate: The best golfer in this years tournament was Tim Hume. Hume proved it by shooting a superb closing round, a 67 that, combined with his opening-round 72, boosted him to a five-under par total of 139 and a five-stroke victory in the 45th annual Presidential Tournament, hosted Saturday and Sunday by Seven Rivers Golf and Country Club. I did pretty well, but Tim was just too good, said Scott Lynch, whose even-par 144 earned him second place. Humes scorecard showed how accurate that was. After parring the first three holes, he got birdies on the fourth, sixth, seventh and eighth for a fourunder par 32 on the front nine. His back-nine 35 included his only bogey of the day, on the 12th hole. He countered that with birdies at 13 and 17. I played solid (Saturday), and it wasnt as windy today, Hume said. But I played great on Friday (in a practice round); I shot a 66. To Hume, his play Sunday was predicated on what the others in his foursome were doing, notably the aforementioned guy whos won the most Presidential titles including last years Bob Bleakley. Bleakley started off with three birdies in a row, Hume said. From then on, the grind was on.

Associated PressHILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. Carl Pettersson had another fast start and finished with a 2-under 69 for a five-shot victory over Zach Johnson on Sunday in the RBC Heritage. Pettersson had a run of five straight birdies on the front nine during the third round Saturday to move in front. This time, Pettersson birdied three of the first five holes and built a five-shot lead by the turn that he never relinquished. He finished at 14 under. It was Petterssons fifth career PGA Tour title and first since the 2010 Canadian Open. He tied countryman Jesper Parnevik for most wins on tour by a Swedish player. Top-ranked Luke Donald needed to finish eighth or better to retain his ranking, but tied for 37th and will fall behind Rory McIlroy. Johnson shot a 70 to finish second at 9 under, while Colt Knosts chances for his first PGA Tour title fell apart with a 74. He was third, another shot further back. Kevin Stadler (68) and Billy Mayfair (69) tied for fourth at 6 under.

Miami went 2-3 without manager Ozzie Guillen. The Marlins are off Monday and he returns Tuesday from a five-game suspension. Announced attendance was 34,232, largest of the weekend in the Marlins new home, although the actual turnout was several thousand less.Reds 8, Nationals 5 (11 innings)WASHINGTON Joey Votto hit a two-run double in the 11th inning and the Cincinnati Reds avoided a four-game sweep with an 8-5 victory over the Washington Nationals.

The Dodgers improved to 9-1, the best mark in the major leagues. It was 4-all when the Dodgers turned their first triple play since 1998. They did it when Jesus Guzman tried to back away from a bunt, but the pitch came high and tight and hit his bat. The ball landed in front of the plate and catcher A.J. Ellis picked it up and threw to third. Guzman, startled by what happened, didnt run to first, which made it easy for third baseman Juan Uribe to relay to shortstop Gordon at second base. In turn, he threw to James Loney to complete the triple play.

Orlando took another injury hit in the first quarter when Glen Davis, who had played well at center with Howard sidelined, sustained a sprained right knee and didnt return. He will undergo a further examination Monday. Jason Richardson added 16 points for Orlando, which had five players in double figures. J.J. Redick scored 13. Antawn Jamison led the Cavaliers with 21 points. Donald Sloan scored a career-high 15. Cleveland completed its only set of back-to-back-toback games this season. The Cavaliers lost in Indiana on Friday and picked up a road win in Washington Saturday. The Cavaliers again played without rookie point guard Kyrie Irving, who missed his 10th straight game with a sprained right shoulder. Coach Byron Scott said its possible hell return Wednesday night when Cleveland hosts Philadelphia. Its uncertain if center Anderson Varejao will return this season. Varejao hasnt played since Feb. 10. Orlando was in control throughout in the battle of short-handed teams in extending its winning streak over Cleveland to nine games. The Cavaliers scored 15 points in each of the first two quarters and shot 28.9 percent in the first half. Howard missed his fourth straight game. The Magic originally said he had back spasms, but an examination in Los Angeles revealed the disk injury. Howard will rest the injury for 10 days and will then be re-evaluated. Howard joined his teammates in Cleveland, but remained at the Magics hotel during the game. He accompanied the team back to Orlando, where the Magic host Philadelphia on Monday. Van Gundy said before Sundays game he would consider it a bonus if Howard and Turkoglu return this season. Davis was injured when he went up for a shot and came down awkwardly on his right leg. He crumpled to the floor and was down for a couple of minutes. Davis walked with a noticeable limp to the locker room. He had six points and two rebounds in seven minutes. MAGICContinued from Page A1 Associated PressSUNRISE Stephen Weiss scored the first two playoff goals of his 10-year NHL career, Jose Theodore stopped 23 shots and the Florida Panthers got their first playoff victory in nearly 15 years, beating the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Sunday night to even the first-round series at a game apiece. Marcel Goc had a goal and an assist for the Panthers, who survived a frantic Devils rally in the third. Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk scored in the first 2:02 of the third period, and Martin Brodeur made 20 saves for New Jersey. Tomas Fleischmann had an empty-net goal as time expired and Florida fans littered the ice with hundreds of toy rats a tradition that dates to the Panthers run to the 1996 Stanley Cup finals. Feels good, said Stephen Weiss. Obviously, these fans have been waiting a long time for this kind of hockey and this is a big win for us. Not the start we wanted in the third period, but this is a big win. It was the Panthers first playoff win in 5,478 days they beat the New York Rangers 3-0 on April 17, 1997, a year before the arena they currently call home even opened.Flyers 8, Penguins 4PHILADELPHIA Fists were flying faster than shots on goal. Sidney Crosby and Claude Giroux even became knotted in the pushing, pulling and shoving, a pair of superstars willing to mix it up to prove which team was the baddest on the ice and the scoreboard. The Penguins and Flyers talked trash, laid the smack down, and played one wildly entertaining game. The result was still the same. The Flyers rallied from another early deficit for a decisive Game 3 victory that placed them on the brink of an improbable sweep. Danny Briere, Matt Read and Max Talbot each scored two goals to lead Philadelphia to an 8-4 victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday in a fightfilled game in the Eastern Conference quarterfinal. Giroux and Wayne Simmonds also scored to help the Flyers take a 3-0 lead in the combustible best-of-seven series. Game 4 is Wednesday night in Philadelphia. The Flyers scored 30 goals in the first three games. The goals might be hard to find on a highlight reel. This one was all about the brawls more suitable for a UFC card. Three players were tossed in the first period. There was a rare fight between superstars when Crosby squared off against Giroux. No one got the better end of that scrap. But by the end, Flyers fans serenaded the Penguins with booming chants of You cant beat us! All three games were kind of weird games, Giroux said. I guess I like weird games because we always finish by winning. Jordan Staal and James Neal scored twice for the Penguins. Predators 3, Red Wings 2DETROIT Shea Weber knew he wouldnt be popular in the Motor City. The star defenseman didnt really care, he just wanted to win. Weber turned boos into silence with a goal early in the first period and the Nashville Predators held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in the firstround series. I guess were more focused on the game, he said. Weber was jeered every time he touched the puck for smashingHenrik Zetterbergs face into glass at the end of Game 1. We talk about great players when theres a little bit of controversy stepping up, Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. When he came to the rink, he knew he wasnt going to be the most likable player in the arena. Webers goal snapped Nashvilles 0-for-12 streak on the power play against the Red Wings in the series and helped the franchise end its 0-for-6 skid in playoff games against them on the road. We havent been around for 100 years, so this was just another thing we had to get done, Trotz said. The Predators, who are in their 13th NHL season, advanced in the playoffs last year for the first time and are trying to get past the Red Wings after being eliminated by them in 2008 and 2004. Detroit will need to win Tuesday to avoid facing elimination in Game 5 at Nashville. Kevin Klein gave the Predators a 2-0 lead early in the second and Pavel Datsyuk pulled the Red Wings within one midway through the period. Sergei Kostitsyn sealed the victory with a wrist shot from the inside of the right circle with 3:30 left on a sequence that started with Klein getting to a rebound on the other end of the ice and passing the puck along to Mike Fisher.

Ramon Sessions scored 22 points, and Gasol had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers, who are 4-1 while the NBAs leading scorer rests his bruised shin. Metta World Peace had 18 points as Los Angeles rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit before finishing off a four-game season sweep of the defending champion Mavericks. Dirk Nowitzki had 24 points on 9-of-28 shooting and 14 rebounds, but Jason Terry missed a potential tying layup at the rim with 5 seconds left in overtime for the Mavericks, whose threegame winning streak ended. Delonte West scored 20 points, and Terry had 21 before missing a shot while trying to avoid Matt Barnes defense.Heat 93, Knicks 85NEW YORK LeBron James had 29 points and 10 rebounds, Dwyane Wade added 28 points and nine boards, and the Heat beat the Knicks to clinch the Southeast Division title. Chris Bosh finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds for the Heat, who pulled away in the fourth quarter of a possible playoff preview. Miami is second in the Eastern Conference and New York came into the game tied for seventh, although they fell back behind Philadelphia after the loss. Carmelo Anthony scored 42 points for the Knicks, but had only two baskets in the fourth quarter, perhaps tired after playing 43 minutes.Bulls 100, Pistons 94 (OT)AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Derrick Rose scored 24 points, including a tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation, and the Bulls beat the Pistons for the 15th straight time. Rodney Stuckey scored 32 points for the Pistons, but he missed two crucial free throws late in the fourth quarter. Roses 3-pointer with 6.4 seconds remaining tied the game at 86 and sent it to the extra session. Joakim Noah had 20 points and 17 rebounds for the Bulls, who are 3 1/2 games ahead of Miami in the race for the top seed in the Eastern Conference.Raptors 102, Hawks 86ATLANTA DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points and the injury-riddled Raptors beat the Hawks for their second straight win over a playoff-bound team. Alan Anderson, one of three Toronto players whose 10-day contract is about to expire, added 16 points for the Raptors, who were coming off an 84-79 win against Boston on Friday. Toronto, bound for the NBAs draft lottery, dominated in Atlanta. The Hawks, who routed the Magic 109-81 Friday for their fourth win in five games, never led against the Raptors. Josh Smith scored 12 of his 26 points in the first quarter, but Atlanta allowed Toronto to shoot 55 percent (41 for 74).Kings 104, Trail Blazers 103SACRAMENTO, Calif. Marcus Thornton scored 20 points and made the winning jumper with 3.4 seconds left, lifting the Kings to a victory over the Trail Blazers. Thornton hit a 17-footer off an inbound pass before Portlands Raymond Felton missed a desperation shot from halfcourt at the buzzer. DeMarcus Cousins scored 23 points and Tyreke Evans also had 20 for the Kings, who rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to snap a seven-game skid with only their third win in 15 games. Isaiah Thomas had 18 points and eight assists.Celtics 94, Bobcats 82CHARLOTTE, N.C. Rajon Rondo had 20 points and 16 assists to help the Celtics beat the Bobcats despite playing without three of their star players. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen were given the night off to rest and did not make the trip to Charlotte, N.C. to face the NBA-worst Bobcats. But the Celtics won anyway as Avery Bradley and Brandon Bass each scored 22 points. Greg Stiemsma started in place of Garnett and had six blocks, tying a career-high. The loss was the Bobcats 16th straight, tying a dubious franchise record set earlier this season. Gerald Henderson had 22 points in a losing effort for the Bobcats (7-52). If the Bobcats lose their final seven games this season they will finish with the worst single-season winning percentage in NBA history.Hornets 88, Grizzlies 75NEW ORLEANS Eric Gordon scored 18 points and the Hornets won for the fourth time in five games, upsetting the playoff-contending Grizzlies. Saints owner Tom Benson attended his first game since Fridays announcement that he had agreed to buy the Hornets from the NBA. He received a standing ovation, and the Hornets kept the applause coming as they pulled away in the fourth quarter from a Grizzlies squad that had won five of its previous six games. Carl Landry had 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Jason Smith had 14 points and 10 rebounds for New Orleans. Rudy Gay scored 24 points for Memphis.Nuggets 101, Rockets 86DENVER Arron Afflalo scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half, leading the Denver Nuggets to a 101-86 win over the Houston Rockets in the opener of a crucial home-and-home set between playoff hopefuls. With the win, the Nuggets took sole possession of seventh place in the Western Conference. The teams are clinging to the final two playoff spots in the West, trying to fend off fastcharging Phoenix and Utah. Ty Lawson also scored 20 points for Denver.

Hes won more of these tournaments than anyone. As well as Hume may have been playing, he knew Bleakley had one significant advantage: As a Seven Rivers member, he had a much greater knowledge of the course. Prior to Fridays round, Hume who lives in Tampa had played it just three times. Youve got to manage your game on this course, Hume said, something Bleakley did well. Absolutely. He knew where to hit his drives and where to lay off. The main key was to bear down after Bleakley got off to that fast start. But the fast start was all the defending champion could muster. He would not get another birdie after stringing those together on the second, third and fourth holes, and he carded two bogeys and then had a double bogey on No. 14 for a 73.That left him with a 1-over-par two-day score of 145, good for third place behind Lynch. Rick Powers combined rounds of 76 and 75 for a 151 total, earning a fourth-place finish. I told you he was better than us, Bleakley said of Hume. Hes longer off the tee than I am and his irons are better than mine. He was just better. Hes got a better golf game than anyone else in the tournament. If Bleakley and Lynch needed any further convincing of Humes ability, it came on the par-five, 556-yard 17th hole. Hume blistered his drive and followed it up with a wood shot onto the green. He narrowly missed his chance for an eagle, settling for a birdie and a five-shot lead. He hit a tee shot at 17 that a two or three handicap cant hit, Bleakley said. That additional yardage off the tee and with his fairway irons and woods was the result of a lesson Hume had Thursday with his coach, Vince Puglia, in Juliette Falls. I havent been playing well, Hume said. Thats why I went for a lesson. Ive been with him for 20 years. A few swing adjustments were all that was needed for Hume to dominate. The Championship A Flights leader after the opening round was Dick Laxton, whose 73 left him in the running for the overall championship. But Laxton experienced back trouble on the back nine and had to withdraw, allowing Tom Hendrick to claim the Championship A Flight title with a 7874/152 total. Terry Austin was second with a 160. In the Championship First Flight, Kelly Brady earned a two-stroke victory over runner-up Vince Christian with a finishing 76 for a 154 total. Brady and Christian had been tied after the first round, each with a 78. Larry Vanderbie won the Senior Championship Flight going away with a 139 (playing from the white tees) total, nine strokes better than runner-up Rob Cunningham, and in the White Second Flight Bob Pennells 163 was best, with Ignacio Ospino one stroke behind at 165. The crown in the White Third Flight went to Dan Wilson with a 161. Dick Brady was second with 165. And in the White Fourth Flight, Gerry Douglas was best with a 162, while Robert Krull edged Blane Minor by a stroke in the White Fifth Flight, earning top honors with a 174. In the Green First Flight (from the green tees), Rex Hoseleys 155 was the top score, while J.P. Sullivan won the Green Second Flight with 44 points. Winners in each flight received a $250 gift card as well as a plaque commemorating their victory. PRESIDENTIALContinued from Page B1 He was just better. Hes got a better golf game than anyone else in the tournament. Bob Bleakleyprevious tournament champion. with Matt Bettencourt (69). Masters winner Bubba Watson and most of the worlds best took the week off to recover from the years first major. Pettersson rolled in a 24footer on No. 1 to get things started with a birdie. He added another birdie, from 16 feet on the par-3 fourth hole, then two-putted from 40 feet on the par-5 fifth to go up by four shots. When Johnson took bogey at No. 10, Pettersson was five strokes in front and cruising. Knost was on top after Thursday and Friday and felt good as part of the final pairing. But those nerves Knost acknowledged on Saturday were apparantly back again in the final round. He missed an 8-foot putt for par and made bogey on No. 1 for a second straight round to drop three shots behind Pettersson. And just like Saturday, Knost fought back with a birdie on the second hole he made eagle there in the third round to close in on Pettersson. However, Knosts chances ended, though, a hole later with a horrible drive out of bounds left on No. 3 that led to a triple-bogey seven and left him five shots behind and out of contention. When Knost flew his approach to the 12th green way left, he simply stood in the fairway and stared straight ahead, hands on hips, in disbelief. Johnson, four strokes behind Pettersson at the start, tried to make a charge with birdies on the second, fourth and fifth holes. Johnson closed to three shots when he birdied No. 15 and Pettersson had his first bogey of the day moments later. But Johnson ran out of steam on the 16th hole when he drove into a waste bunker and took bogey. Still, it was Johnsons best showing of the year and first top10 finish since January. Donald was largely resigned to surrendering No. 1 when he woke up early for his 9:46 a.m. start time, more than four hours before the final group of Pettersson and Knost teed off. Donalds round began badly with a double bogey at No. 1. He worked his way back with birdies on the fifth and sixth hole and thats where he stayed. Donald ended a four-week run at No. 1 that began after he won the Transitions Championship last month. Donald said hes proved hes among the worlds best and is confident hell stay in that conversation, no matter where hes ranked. Now, my focus is winning tournaments, he said. Donald headed the list of four golfers among the 20 who followed the Masters with Harbour Town. World No. 13 Webb Simpson finished at 4 over while No. 14 Matt Kuchar, two strokes from the playoff in third at Augusta National, also was way off the pace at 3 over. No. 18 Bill Haas did not make the cut. Petterssons last victory came at the RBC Canadian Open in 2010 and this win was likely just popular with first-year Heritage sponsor Royal Bank of Canada. The financial institution, along with the Boeing Co., stepped in last June to back the cashstrapped event which was in danger of disappearing without such support. Divots: Sean OHair played by himself as Sundays first tee time and finished a 2-over 73 in one hour, 55 minutes. ... 2010 champion Jim Furyk was a stroke off the lead Thrusday with an opening 68. Furyk was only able to improve one stroke the final 54 holes. ... Brian Harman, a 25-yearold pro from nearby Savannah, Ga., had a horrible final eight holes during his round of 82. Harman had four bogeys, two double bogeys and a triple bogey during that stretch. HERITAGEContinued from Page B1 Sports BRIEFS Allen wins Encompass Insurance Pro-AmLUTZ, Fla. Michael Allen won the Encompass Insurance Pro-Am for his second Champions Tour title, closing with a 3-under 68 for a three-stroke victory over Kenny Perry. Allen finished the three-day event at 12 under. He took a five-shot advantage into the final round, tying the tournament record for the largest 36-hole margin. Allen bogeyed Nos. 3 and 4 at TPC Tampa Bay to cut his lead to one, but rebounded with birdies on two of the next three holes. He extended his advantage to four shots with birdies on 12 and 14. Perry eagled the par-4 first hole and par-5 12th during a round of 65. Allen also won the 2009 Senior PGA Championship.Oosthuizen wins Malaysian Open by three strokesKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Louis Oosthuizen won the Malaysian Open, a week after losing a playoff to Bubba Watson in the Masters. The South African completed a 3-under 69 in the rain-delayed third round, then closed with a 68 for a three-stroke victory over Scotlands Stephen Gallacher. The 2010 British Open champion finished at 17-under 271 on Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Clubs West Course. Gallacher shot a 70. American David Lipsky also closed with a 70 to tie for third at 12 under with Spains Rafael Cabrera-Bello and Englands Danny Willett. Cabrera-Bello and Willett shot 71. The tournament was sanctioned by the European and Asian tours.Errani of Italy wins third Barcelona Open titleBARCELONA, Spain Sara Errani of Italy won her third Barcelona Open title in four years after beating third-seeded Dominika Cibulkova 62, 6-2 in the final Sunday. The seventh-seeded Errani needed just over an hour to defeat Cibulkova on the outdoor clay court where she also won in 2011 and 2009. Errani was the runner-up in 2010. Errani took advantage of Cibulkovas shaky serve and seven double-faults to break the Slovak player six times en route to victory. Errani won her second title of the year after a victory in Acapulco in February.Andujar beats Ramos to win Grand Prix Hassan IICASABLANCA, Morocco Pablo Andujar successfully defended his Grand Prix Hassan II title, beating Albert Ramos 6-1, 7-6 (5) on Sunday in the rain-delayed all-Spanish final. The players went off early in the second set after a downpour, but there was little reprieve for Ramos when they resumed.

Isner wouldve moved up to No. 8 in the rankings with a victory, but the Argentine broke Isners serve three times to hand the American his first clay loss of the year. Monaco won on clay for the second time this year and improved to 11-2 on the surface this year overall. He came in ranked 16th and his first victory in America will move up him to No. 14, matching a career high. Isner won 44 consecutive service games in the tournament before Monaco broke him twice in the first set to take control. Isner had eight aces in the match, but also had five double faults.From wire reports

Associated PressAmerican art collector Peggy Guggenheim poses May 30, 1979, between early paintings by Jackson Pollock that are part of her modern art collection at her 18th century palace, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, in Venice, Italy. Pollock, who would have turned 100 in 2012, will have the anniversary of his birth observed with exhibitions, fundraisers and other events throughout the year. Hunger Games beat out Stooges DAVIDGERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Movie fans have chosen real violence over the slapstick variety as The Hunger Games held off The Three Stooges to remain the No. 1 weekend movie. Lionsgates The Hunger Games, the blockbuster about teens competing in a televised fight to the death, stayed on top for a fourth-straight weekend with $21.5 million. That raises the films domestic total to $337.1 million. I think a couple of weeks ago, if someone had told us where wed be, we would have said, Wed like to see that number, but it would be a pleasant surprise. So were in that pleasant surprise spot at this point, said Richie Fay, head of distribution for Lionsgate. Peter and Bobby Farrellys slapstick update The Three Stooges opened in second-place with $17.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That was well above industry expectations of around $10 million for the 20th Century Fox update starring Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe, Sean Hayes as Larry and Will Sasso as Curly. Fox executives had figured the movie would appeal mainly to young males. But it also pulled in older men who grew up on the Stooges and a fair number of women and girls as whole families turned out to see it, said Chris Aronson, the studios head of distribution. If youre predisposed to open your mind, its a laugh riot, Aronson said. The acclaimed horror tale The Cabin in the Woods debuted in thirdplace with $14.9 million. A smart, twisting take on the genre produced and cowritten by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), the long-delayed Cabin in the Woods had been one of the films caught up in MGMs bankruptcy but was finally released by Lionsgate. On the 100th anniversary of the ships sinking on April 15, 1912, the 3-D version of James Camerons Titanic sailed past the $2 billion mark worldwide. Titanic is just the second blockbuster to top $2 billion, trailing only the next film Cameron made the sci-fi sensation Avatar, which took in $2.8 billion. Domestically, Titanic held the No. 4 spot with $11.6 million. The 3-D rerelease has taken in $44.4 million domestically to lift the films lifetime total to $645.2 million. Today is Monday, April 16, the 107th day of 2012. There are 259 days left in the year. Todays Highlight: On April 16, 1912, American aviator Harriet Quimby became the first woman to fly across the English Channel, traveling from Dover, England, to France in 59 minutes, an accomplishment that was overshadowed by the Titanic disaster the day before.

Out behind a small farmhouse on a Long Island country road sits an old gray barn where a tormented artist dripped paint off brushes, sticks even turkey basters onto canvasses spread out on a wooden floor. Besides making quite a mess of things, leaving splash marks everywhere, Jackson Pollock also created some of the 20th centurys greatest masterpieces. Pollock, who would have turned 100 this year, is being remembered at a New York City fundraiser later this month honoring a charity that aids struggling artists, along with the Academy Award-nominated actor and filmmaker Ed Harris who spent nearly a decade making the 2000 film Pollock. There also are exhibitions in Washington, D.C., and at the home Pollock shared with his wife, artist Lee Krasner, in the Springs community of East Hampton now a museum and study center. And shoe manufacturer Crocs is releasing a Pollock-inspired shoe this June, fashioned after the paint-splashed floor that visitors can still see in the artists barn. I think Pollocks art is incredible, Harris told The Associated Press in a recent telephone interview. I think it was revolutionary at the time and I think it kind of holds up that way and it is really exquisite. The fundraiser honoring Harris, and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, which has given $56.3 million in grants to artists in 72 countries since 1985, is intended to help finance and expand the work of a separate Stony Brook Universitybased organization that runs the Pollock-Krasner home.Inside Pollocks homeWhat we try to give people here is insights into who these people were, what it was that stimulated them creatively and where that took them in terms of their art, said Helen Harrison, director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. Harris said before he started filming in 1999 the exteriors of the Pollock-Krasner home and scenes from a nearby general store were filmed on location in Springs; the interiors re-created on a Brooklyn sound stage he spent a couple of nights sleeping in Pollocks bedroom. I was hoping for a visitation, which didnt quite happen, joked Harris, who was nominated for a best actor Oscar for his performance in the film, which also was his directorial debut. I cant even express how invaluable it was to me, he said of the home. I dont think the film would have really have had the richness and authenticity it did if we werent filming there. Just on an emotional level, or a metaphysical level of some kind, you know youre filming a story about this man and this is where he lived.Assessing his workPollock, a lifelong alcoholic who died behind the wheel in a drunken-driving crash at the age of 44, was a controversial artist reviled by some critics and lionized by others. His best-known paintings were created by dripping paint, seemingly haphazardly, across canvasses large and small. Some feature popping bright colors, others are stark black-and-whites. I like to describe his work as energy made visible, said Pepe Karmel, a Pollock expert and assistant professor in the art history department at New York University. The lines curving through space, changing direction, the colors; it is an amazing image of the world that could represent many things. Its totally opened ended. What they all have in common is the fantastic energy that characterizes modern society. Pollock was already an artist of some note working in Manhattans Greenwich Village in the early 1940s, but the move to Long Island in late 1945 was the key to unlocking his genius, many experts say. They also agree Krasners motive in separating Pollock from his drinking buddies in Manhattan succeeded in focusing his attention on his artwork, albeit temporarily. Marcia Gay Harden won a best supporting actress Oscar for her portrayal of Krasner, who was an artist in her own right, living in the home until her death in 1984 at age 75. He looks out and he sees Mother Nature, which is his great stimulation, Harrison said. And then he thinks back to his childhood in Arizona and California and the wide open spaces. These things all came flooding back to him, and he has an epiphany. Added Karmel: In a very general way, the landscape did inspire him. The immensity of the ocean, being on the beach; that is certainly feeling akin to being out west.Pollocks effectToday, Pollock artworks sell for tens of millions one painting in 2006 reportedly sold to an unidentified collector for $140 million but when the couple lived in East Hampton in the late s and s, they struggled to pay their bills. Harrison said there was one bounced check found amid Pollocks papers for $4, and it was several years before the home was equipped with electricity and plumbing. Besides the April 25 fundraiser in Manhattan, a centennial tribute of Pollocks art continues at the Lawrence A. Fleischman Gallery in Washington, D.C., until May 15. An exhibit, The Persistence of Pollock, will be on display at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center from May 3 to July 28, and a lecture on Pollock and Krasner will be at the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall in East Hampton on July 22. ENTERTAINMENT Page B5MONDAY, APRIL 16, 2012Pollocks pieces CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Birthday: Although the aspects indicate some kind of increase in your material worth in the year ahead, unless you make yourself go after things in a big way, it will only be nominal. Set your sights on one major goal and go full tilt. Aries (March 21-April 19) You may enter the day with high hopes, but unless something good happens to help you keep that positive attitude, the slightest upset will send you into a funk. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Upon occasion youre apt to ignore those who have done the most for you, while rewarding the undeserving in hopes of getting their attention. This approach will do nothing for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) In order to get others to do your bidding, you might try to use some flattery. However, if the recipient doesnt deserve your words of praise, youll get nowhere. Sincerity will have the greatest impact. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you run into someone who can help you in your career, the use of levity could prove counterproductive. Keep your conversation on a serious plane. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Youll be of no help if you tell an advice seeker only what she or he wants to hear. Youll do more for the other party if you are frank and forthright. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Even if the truth is painful, be sure to base your judgment calls on facts. Decisions based on easy outs might make you feel good, but if they do nothing for you, theyre worthless. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont think it wont anger your friends if you give them cause to think youre nice only to those who can help you get what you want. Treat everyone with the same courtesy. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if members of the opposite sex usually find you quite appealing, dont mistake the signals and think someone is making a pass at you. It could prove to be embarrassing. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Even if you dont have any current plans to use them, your pragmatic skills will be more pronounced than your artistic ones. Put them to work for you if you can. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Its important to follow through on any promises you made to another, even if it now causes you a bit of inconvenience. Doing so will greatly enhance your reputation. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you are penny-wise and pound foolish, dont be surprised if you discover a lot of holes in your books when it comes time to take stock. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Unless you are materially motivated, it isnt likely that youll use the full force of your talents. However, youll shift into full gear when there is something in it for you.

B6MONDAY, APRIL16, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Last week we compared active and passive defense. This week we will look at less specific defense deals, covering a variety of techniques. Most deals that feature signaling require playing either an unnecessarily high card to encourage partner to continue the suit he has led or the lowest one to warn of no help in that suit. Take this deal as an example. Against four hearts, West starts with the diamond ace: four, two, six. How should he plan the defense from there? Over Wests takeout double, Norths two notrump was Truscott (often incorrectly called Jordan, after Bobby, who popularized it in the United States). It promised at least game-invitational values with four or more cards in partners suit. (With a strong balanced hand, North should start with a redouble.) Many Wests would not resist the temptation to cash the diamond king at trick two. And as you can see, that is fatal for the defense. Assuming West shifts to a spade at trick three (aided by Easts dropping a suit-preference diamond nine at trick two), declarer calls for dummys ace, draws trumps and discards his second spade on the established diamond jack. He loses only two diamonds and one club. West should trust his partners discouraging diamond two, which marks declarer with the queen. It is time to switch. A club might be best, but a spade looks more logical. Declarer has no option but to try the finesse; however, it loses and eventually the defenders will collect one spade, two diamonds and one club.

My husband has gone out of his way to mistreat me. It has been eight years since we have had sex. He claims its due to a physical problem, but thats not true. I once spotted him fondling a female guest during a dinner prayer and getting excited. He told me I repulse him and thats why he wont do anything about his sex problem. I asked him to leave, and he refused, saying hed let the house rot to the ground before Id get it. So I moved out. He gave my cell number to our preacher and church members and told them he could not live without me. After receiving calls threatening to have me publicly removed from their membership, I went back to him. We went to our deacons house for dinner last week, and he told them how he stayed home to take care of me after I was in a car accident, listing all the sacrifices he made on my behalf. He failed to mention that the reason he could stay home was that he had been fired from his job for sexual harassment his third offense. The church thinks he is wonderful and I am the bad guy. I am not looking to destroy his reputation. I just want to get away from him before he further ruins my life. He has even lied to our children, saying I left because I have a boyfriend on the side. They believe him. What can I do? I Am So Sad Dear Sad: Your husband is a bully who is counting on the fact that you wont defend yourself. Stop worrying about his reputation and consider your own. Please tell your children and the deacon the truth about your situation, and ask for their help. Counseling would be a good first step, with or without your husband, through your church or via your doctors recommendation. Dear Annie: A friend and I met at a restaurant to have dinner with a few close family members. One of the attendees is an insulin dependent diabetic. Just after ordering, while seated at the table, this person raised his shirt and injected himself in the stomach with insulin. It was unexpected and not the dining experience my friend and I expected to share. I will be dining out with this person later this summer. What should I do or say to avoid a repeat of that unappetizing start to a meal? Lost My Appetite Dear Lost: Unless these things can be done so discreetly that no one notices, it is best to inject insulin, insert contact lenses, brush hair, floss teeth, repeatedly blow ones nose, apply makeup, etc., in the restroom instead of subjecting your tablemates to your personal requirements. Some diabetics find this enormously inconvenient (and we cant blame them if the restrooms are unclean) and expect others to be tolerant. If your friend is one of those, we suggest you either avert your gaze and make the best of it, or tell the others to go ahead and order because youll be arriving late. Dear Annie: I was compelled to respond to Worried Mom, who complains about her 22-year-old sons antisocial behavior while he is studying for the MCAT. I remember very well studying for the MCAT. I spent every waking hour of the weekends at the library so I would not be disturbed. I studied nonstop all week. My friends worried when I left events after only 30 minutes. My parents saw me rarely. The MCAT is a purposefully difficult exam. It weeds out those who are not serious about medicine as a career. Doctors sacrifice their personal lives for their patients. I recommend the parents do their son a huge favor and leave him alone. If he doesnt get into medical school due to insufficient study, he will forever regret his laxity.

Associated PressLONG BEACH, Calif. Will Power kept Penske Racing perfect this season by picking his way through the field Sunday at Long Beach to win his second consecutive IndyCar Series race. Power was one of the 11 Chevrolet drivers penalized for changing the engines as a precautionary measure when teams reported to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The punishment was 10 spots on the starting grid, so Power, who qualified second, rolled off in 12th at the start Sunday. One race after driving from ninth to first to win at Barber, the Australian did it again. After last week, you can never say never, but I thought it would be very tough to win the race, Power said. We worked hard, we got a penalty and we overcame it. Ive been trying to win here for four years. Penske won the seasonopening race with Helio Castroneves, and Power has won the last two to make the team a perfect 3-0 on the season. The victory also gave Power the points lead. In the end, despite the penalties, Chevrolet drivers claimed eight of the top-10 finishing spots. After picking his way through traffic, Power still had to hold off hard-charging Simon Pagenuad to preserve the win Penskes first at Long Beach since 2001. Pagenaud made it close, but traffic hurt his chances, and the rookie settled for a career-best finish of second for Honda. Takuma Sato seemed headed to a third-place finish, but was spun on the last lap by Ryan Hunter-Reay. IndyCar assessed a 30-second penalty on HunterReay, so third place went to James Hinchcliffe in his first career podium. It was a messy race from the start as rookie Josef Newgardens aggressive move on leader Dario Franchitti backfired. Newgarden was moved to the front row after the Chevrolets were penalized, and the 21-year-old joked after Saturdays qualifying that he might try to pass Franchitti immediately because the four-time champion wouldnt be expecting such a bold move. Newgarden backed up his words, and tried to get past Franchitti on the outside as they headed into the first turn. There seemed to be some contact between the two, and Newgardens car sailed into the tire barrier, ending his race without a single completed lap. That immediate incident set the tone for a rough race, with a hard crash between Marco Andretti and Graham Rahal the most frightening moment of the day. The drivers disagreed on who was to blame for the collision that resulted in Andrettis car sailing up and over Rahals before spinning into a barrier. Its a cluster back there, Rahal said. I think I surprised Marco. He wasnt going to make the corner no matter what. Andretti thought Rahal intentionally cut him off and should have been penalized. During the yellow flag for IndyCar to clean up the mess from the Andretti wreck, Scott Dixons car came to a complete stop on the track to punctuate a rough day for the Target Chip Ganassi Racing drivers. Franchitti, who started from the pole because of the Chevrolet penalties, finished 15th.Rosberg wins Chinese GP for first F1 victorySHANGHAI Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg won the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday for his first career Formula One victory after starting from pole. Rosberg won by a staggering 20.6 seconds over McLarens Jenson Button after making just two pits stops and managing to hold off the rest of the field on worn tires. Buttons McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton was third, followed by the Red Bull duo of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel. Vettel, the defending champion, started 11th and at one stage moved up to second, but couldnt hold off Button, Hamilton and Webber in the closing stages. With his finish, Hamilton takes the lead in the driver standings with 45 points, two ahead of Button. Fernando Alonso is third with 37 points, followed by Webber(36) and Vettel (28). Rosberg moves into sixth with 25.B8MONDAY, APRIL16, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEAUTORACING Classifieds ClassifiedsClassifieds In Print and Online All The Time!

It will take years off your life. Ive probably lost several, Biffle said. What kept me going or what keeps your spirit up is when you run good. ... We have run good, we just hadnt finished. Until getting to Texas, where Jack Roushs drivers have always been good. Biffle held on tight in the fastest Sprint Cup race ever on the 1 1/2mile, high-banked track, pulling away after charging below Jimmie Johnson for a winning pass with 30 laps remaining on a windy and fast-paced Saturday night. The NASCAR Sprint Cup season points leader after five consecutive races now has a victory to go with that lofty status. To win like this and put a bunch of ground on the guys behind us certainly makes a statement, I think, for all the people that were wondering if this was kind of a fluke that we were still leading the points this far in, Biffle said. For Roush, it was his ninth victory in 23 Cup races at Texas, and completed a weekend sweep in the Lone Star State. The team owner won his ninth Nationwide race in Texas, and fourth in a row, when Ricky Stenhouse Jr. went to Victory Lane on Friday night. After passing Johnson with a strong move deep down in Turn 3 I knew the team would forgive me if I wrecked it trying to beat him, Biffle said the No. 16 Ford went on to a 3.2-second victory with an average speed of 160.577 mph. Biffles 17th career victory was his first since an October 2010 race in Kansas, where the series goes next week. A decade after winning the Nationwide Series season championship, which came after a NASCAR trucks championship, maybe this could be the year the 42-year-old Biffle becomes the first driver with a NASCAR series trifecta of titles. When I moved from the Truck Series to Nationwide, it was a huge step. It was much, much harder. And when I moved from the Nationwide to the Cup Series, I had no idea that the competition was going to be what it was, he said. I knew it was going to be hard. ... But this year is my year, so Im going to keep after it all the way to Homestead. Johnson led three times for 156 of the 334 laps while going for owner Rick Hendricks 200th victory. But the five-time Cup champion never recovered, even scraping the No. 48 Chevrolet hard into the wall trying to catch up after Biffle drove under him and passed him for the final time. Im definitely disappointed, but we had a great race car, said Johnson, who had led only 119 laps combined his first 17 Texas starts. I just got tangled up in some lapped traffic and the No. 16 made a great move and got by me. Then I was pacing him from there and didnt have anything left to go get him. It was Johnsons fifth runner-up finish in Texas. Mark Martin was third in a Michael Waltrip-owned Toyota, while his teammate and polesitter Martin Truex Jr. led 69 laps and finished sixth, his fourth consecutive top 10 this season. Hendrick driver Jeff Gordon was fourth. Matt Kenseth was fifth.
