Scott Adams brings business experience to commission C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterOne week after taking the oath of office as a fledgling county commissioner, Scott Adams learned he would face one of the countys greatest financial crises ever Duke Energy refusing to pay the full amount of its tax bill. To hear Adams talk, Duke is the last of three beasts that are daunting but can be dealt with. The three beasts comprise an economic monster he described. One of thems the federal government cuts that are going to affect the state and county once this budget and fiscal cliff takes place, Adams said. Theyre going to be cutting budgets and they are going to be increasing taxes. The list continued. The second beast we have is were $6 million shy in a budget shortfall right now, which is a crisis. Speaking to the Chronicle last Monday, Adams already was anticipating Dukes payment refusal. What Ive been told as of earlier today, (Duke is) supposed to make its payment tomorrow and its going to be drastically short. If that takes place, were not only going to be in a crisis, were going to be in a major crisis. With a power company in the county, Weve always just taken it for granted that we dont have to worry too much, Adams said. Well, the time is here. We need to start considering the real deal. It was here a few years ago when the nuke plant was down. And we spent our reserves for whatever reason. But the time is here now that were going to have to do a balancing act. I think its going to be just like the federal government. Were going to have to do some cutting in some areas and were going to have to do some (tax) increasing. Im not for any increasing, but I know what reality is. On Wednesday, the financial crisis was announced, as Adams and other commissioners had been warned. This is when true business principles of proper accounting will have to come out and all of us (will have to) be sincere and honest with ourselves for what we need to do to get through this as a county, Adams said. I think I understand all them issues by being in business all my life. Part of the teamAdams the businessman has worked with partnerships, but often has gone it alone. While he expressed eagerness to work with the commission as a team each member bringing his or her own talents and experiences to the table Adams acknowledged his commission seat as his first actual job answering to others. This will be the first job where Ive ever worked for somebody other than myself, Adams said. And Im proud of it: All of the knowledge Ive learnt and all the achievements Ive had in my life and accomplishments through financial and business building and managing employees. Being very efficient is what I believe in. I believe in being frugal with a dollar and making it go as far as it can. Adams said he would represent more of the working-class people and Im more of a guy that represents a little bit of everybody. I understand everybodys situation from retired people to middle-class working people who are out there right now. This was Adams third bid for a commission seat.

B11 CMHS boards to look at sale M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Enemies no more, the two boards overseeing Citrus Memorial Health System begin a process today that will decide the hospitals future. The Citrus County Hospital Board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation meet in a 1:30 p.m. workshop today to start a collaborative process that could lead to a hospital merger or outright sale. Last week, the foundation board of directors voted to release its strategic plan, which previously had been held as confidential as allowed by state law. It also said it would have further strategic meetings in public, although it retained the right to meet in private if necessary. That plan outlines the hospitals increasingly difficult challenge of remaining independent and suggests the only way for CMHS to remain open in the long run is through sale or merger. Meanwhile, CCHB trustees have begun a state statute-driven process that could have the same conclusion. The Legislature requires public hospitals to make a determination, following an appraisal and public input, whether they should be sold or merged with private hospitals. The hospital board voted last week to set a Jan. 3 public hearing and to select a firm date to conduct an appraisal of CMHS assets. CCHB members will decide by April 7 whether Phil Price dies at 75 Former CR councilman served city C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterPhil Price, who helped shape Crystal River in its early years, was known as a fiscal conservative when he served on the city council. One of his four sons, Chuck Price, announced Sunday that his father died earlier that day of natural causes. Winning a seat on the city council in 2006, Price said saving money and cutting costs were his strong points. He pushed for the sheriffs takeover of law enforcement in the city, saving at least $500,000 annually by eliminating the police department. He also led the successful effort for a $500,000 property tax rebate. Price also led the effort to restructure the Community Redevelopment Agency by eliminating the nine-member board and giving oversight of the CRA to the city council. He thought Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston and his staff could do the same job for less expense. Price did not run for another term on the city council as he ran for mayor in 2010, coming in second with 37 percent of the vote in a three-candidate race. He also served on the city council in the 1980s. A certified public accountant, Price established his business, Price & Co., in 1972 in Crystal River. Phillip W. Price, CPA, MBA, PFS, received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of South Florida, with a major in accounting and economics. He received a Master of Business Administration degree from Florida State University, where he also attended law school. He was a senior cost accountant with Honeywell and NASA from 1964 to 1967. From 1967 to 1971, he was with Ernst & Young in Tampa, one of the largest public accounting firms in the country. Price was a member of the American and Florida See PRICE / Page A6 Shortfall looms over BOCCs plans C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterWith the shadow of an unforeseen budget shortfall hanging over it, the county commission will address regular business on Tuesday, including its annual action plan. Although not formally slated on the agenda, members of the Citrus County Board of County Commission (BOCC) may consider some of the issues of the first phase of savings in the current budget, proposed Friday by County Administrator Brad Thorpe at a special meeting called in response to Progress Energy, a subsidiary of Duke Energy Inc., making only a partial payment of its $35 million ad valorem tax bill. First-phase savings would impact hiring county staff, capital replacement projects, training, travel, new vehicle purchase and water projects. Several issues for discussion appear on the agenda. Beginning his year as board chairman, Commissioner Joe Meek will present a six-point plan: Address and confront budget issues.

S AMANTHA K ENNEDY CorrespondentI t is hard to imagine everyday household items being something you can create on your own. Ornaments for the holidays, eatery, dcor, and items as simple as pens and pencils can all be hand crafted to fit your desire, reaping a reward of owning the items and knowing that you created them yourself. This idea is one that is no stranger to the Nature Coast Carving Club, which put on the Nature Coast Carvers show Saturday inside the Citrus County Auditorium. Dozens of carvers gathered for the event, along with those who just attended to look around and perhaps buy some of the detailed artwork. The show featured local carvers who had some of their artwork displayed for people to look at, along with some for sale. Attention to detail and accuracy is one of the major goals when it comes to these artists work. Some, carving down wood to form perfectly anatomically correct birds, right down to the number and type of feather, and others researching what theyre crafting to ensure historical accuracy. Artists selling their works were not the only ones at this event, however. Many vendors attended, selling food and drinks to attendees, and some selling equipment for carving. All the proper knives, lined up by size, covered numerous tables. Lumber vendors and those selling sandpaper appealed to those who need new supplies for their work. It takes patience at first, said craftsmen Jack Smith, but once you get into it, time flies. Some specialize in carving using only a knife and sandpaper, much like crafter Wayne Kates. Others find themselves spending their time creating burnt masterpieces. Its all burnt wood, said Smith. Many think its a photograph or a drawing, but its all done by hand and a device that is basi-cally a hot pen tip. Although many club members werent selling their works, for they found that it was too timeconsuming to place a price on their efforts, many enjoyed inspecting the art and appreciating its value. Along with shows such as this one, the Nature Coast Carving Club took on a Wounded Warrior Project, carving canes and plaques for those wounded fighting for our country. Some carvers displayed their techniques to those walking by, carving wood in front of audiences, and others displayed projects that had taken them months or years to create.

Pets turn out in droves for annual event A MANDAM IMS CorrespondentThe Inverness community showed off its dog-friendly character once again Saturday, when Liberty Park filled with hundreds of canines ready to hang out and have a good time at a festival just for them. In its fourth year, the K-9 Karnival didnt disappoint its furry, fourlegged guests of honor including Chihuahuas in tutus, hulking mastiffs and everything in between who enjoyed a doggie beauty pageant, making new friends and learning new skills with free training sessions. Susan Woolfe and her son, 14-year-old John Sapp, brought their 5year-old mixed-breed dog Teek to the K-9 Karnival for the first time Saturday. We just heard it was a great event, Woolfe said. It exceeded our expectations. I think the dogs are having a great time. The K-9 Karnival is something local canine enthusiasts have come to look forward to each year, according to Jennifer Springer, chairwoman of the event, which is presented by the Greater Inverness Olde Towne Association of Businesses. Its an opportunity for dog lovers to socialize their dogs and meet other dog lovers, and its an opportunity for the pet rescues and adoption agencies to find forever homes for their pets, Springer said. Several rescue organizations were on hand with adoptable dogs, some of which found their new homes Saturday. Others, like Gator, a young bulldog mix, didnt find his new home that day, but he was happy to spend time out of the county shelter, socializing with the other dogs and his handler, 18year-old Colton Ellis. Ellis met Gator while volunteering at Citrus County Animal Services in Inverness, but he said the dog didnt immediately stand out from the rest in the kennels. However, once the friendly brindle dog came outside to play, Ellis recognized Gators special personality. Hes a really good dog, Ellis said. Hes really sweet and he loves everyone. Vickie Humphrey, one of the owners of Bark Central Dog Park in Inverness, a main organizer of the event, said between 300 and 400 dogs attend the K9 Karnival each year, and their owners like to take advantage of the free activities and services offered, including training sessions, as well as allow dogs to socialize with one another and have a good time.

Ocala Two killed in fiery wreck on I-75 Marion County authorities continue to investigate a fiery crash involving a semi-truck that killed two passengers in another car. The Orlando Sentinel reported the crash happened on Interstate 75 early Sunday morning. Six fire crews responded to the scene. Another two passengers in the car suffered non-lifethreatening injuries. Authorities have not identified the victims or drivers. The crash forced the closure of northbound I-75 as authorities investigated and cleared the scene. Fort Myers Pig causes crash in Collier County The Florida Highway Patrol says a pig is responsible for causing a series of car accidents in Collier County and injuring nearly a dozen people. An FHP report said 24year-old Gabriela Resendiz struck a pig Saturday night that was in the middle of the road. Several other cars collided with her vehicle, injuring nearly a dozen other drivers and passengers. Resendiz was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Two others including an infant also received serious injuries. The FHP report stated the other injuries were minor.Miami Orangutan with cancer, twin turn 9An orangutan that received cancer treatments and her twin sister are celebrating their ninth birthday. Peanut and Pumpkin turned 9 years old Sunday. Miamis Jungle Island hosted a birthday celebration for park visitors. The admission price will be donated to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, which helped provide world-class care to Peanut during her chemotherapy treatment. Peanut and Pumpkin are only the third set of orangutan twins to be born in captivity. They are a hit with park visitors, using sign language and an iPad to communicate with trainers. Peanuts chemotherapy ended last month. C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE From staff and wire reportsAround THE STATE Water rule a split decision for both sides Associated PressThe federal Environmental Protection Agencys split decision on new water pollution rules for Florida gives both sides in the contentious debate over the issue something to cheer and jeer about. The EPA late Friday said it was approving rules drafted by the state for only about 15 percent of Floridas 100,000 miles of waterways while adopting its own rules for the rest. Earlier Friday the deadline for implementing a settlement with environmental groups Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson filed a federal court notice in Tallahassee saying EPA would comply with the agreement. The environmental groups that sued the agency, alleging it was dragging its heels on the issue, favor the EPA rules and contend the states alternative proposal is too weak to halt pollution thats causing toxic algae blooms choking the states waters, killing fish and making people sick. Agriculture, business and utility interests as well as Florida officials and political leaders including Gov. Rick Scott favor the states proposal, arguing the EPA rules would be too expensive to implement. The state of Florida has spent the past 14 years asking for more time to develop protective limits on sewage, manure and fertilizer pollution, said Frank Jackalone, Florida staff director for the Sierra Club. EPA has agreed to take immediate action to finally bring the Clean Water Act to Florida with strong rules that will clean up our slime-fouled springs, rivers, lakes and beaches. The agency, though, left the door open to later apply the state rules to more waterways. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which drafted the states proposal, indicated it intends to aggressively pursue that opening. While the EPA has approved the states criteria, we are disappointed about EPAs decision to issue new proposed federal rules, the state agency said in a statement. We will work with them to craft solutions that will allow the state to assume all nutrient criteria rulemaking in Florida. That soothed some of the disappointment for opponents of the federal rules. The EPAs stamp of approval on the Florida science backing the standards developed by FDEP is encouraging as the state will need to continue to work with the agency on new proposed regulations, Associated Industries of Florida President and CEO Tom Feeney said in a statement. Still, Florida Farm Bureau Federation President John Hoblick couldnt put aside his disappointment, saying his group is concerned that EPA decided to impose federal rules on water bodies that lack the study and science to force such limits. Both sets of rules would apply numeric standards for such pollutants as nitrogen and phosphorus, replacing present criteria that set no specific limits. They differ, though, in how they would be applied. The state version adds additional biological and chemical indicators that would have to be present before the numeric limits could be triggered. While EPA has agreed the state approach has merits, it sought an additional extension in Fridays court-set deadline to continue discussions with state officials over remaining sticking points. The agency was forced to act, though, when U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle took no action on the request. In a June order granting a six-month delay, Hinkle wrote that would be the last extension. The EPA has set a public meeting on the new rules for Jan. 17-18 in Tampa and will hold a web-based public hearing Jan. 22-24. Other plaintiffs in the lawsuit are the Florida Wildlife Federation, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, the Environmental Confederation of Southwest Florida and St. Johns Riverkeeper. EPA approved rules drafted by state for 15 percent of Florida waterways Volunteer Colton Ellis sits down with Gator, a young dog available for adoption at the county animal shelter, during the annual K-9 Karnival.

the hospital should stay public or pursue a merger or sale. Foundation Chairman Bob Collins told trustees at their meeting last week the best course is for both boards to work together. I hope were not having duplication of effort, that your board isnt doing what our board is doing, Collins said. I hope we can work in harmony. I dont want to spend more money than we have to. The collaborative effort began in earnest months ago, even while both boards were embroiled in numerous lawsuits regarding hospital oversight. The foundation, which leases the hospital from the CCHB, had invited trustees to its private strategic sessions so they could understand the hospitals fiscal plight. Shortly after that invitation, however, Gov. Rick Scott removed two board members. With one vacancy already unfilled, that left the board with only two remaining members and unable to formally meet. When Scott appointed Bob Priselac in late spring to the CCHB, the board voted 2-1 to meet with the foundation. However, CCHB bylaws require three affirmative votes, so the vote failed. Since then, Scott removed another board member and made three appointments. The new five-member board says it wants to work with the foundation. Nearly all the lawsuits have been dropped, and both sides are awaiting a district court of appeal decision on a foundation lawsuit that challenges a 2011 state law giving trustees hospital oversight. Foundation board members said last week they want to start seeking potential buyers or partners. However, they and trustees say the public should not interpret these talks as a final decision that the hospital should be sold. This is exploration only, foundation director Sandy Chadwick said. Were only trying to find out what is available. Hospital Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty told directors Citrus Memorial has attracted plenty of interest. Im getting a lot of calls, he said, from a lot of different places. Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dispute Over Visas: Members defeated, 157-231, a bid by Democrats to keep HR 6429 (above) from ending the Diversity Immigrant Visa program, which awards 55,000 visas each year by lottery, as a condition of creating the STEM Visa program that would provide green cards to 55,000 highly educated foreigners. A yes vote was to retain the diversity program. Nugent, No. Terrorist Suspects' Rights: Senators voted, 67-29, to bar the indefinite detention without trial of terrorism suspects seized in the U.S. who are U.S. citizens or legal residents.

His past campaigns have brought to light arrest records dating back two decades, but nothing that could keep him out of office. Ive made mistakes and theyve taught me lessons, he said in an August interview. This past week, he gave an example: One thing my dad told me growing up and I tried both of them he kicked me in my butt one day. I was sleeping, about 19 years old, and he said, Im going to give you a little advice. You cant drink yourself sober and you cant spend yourself out of debt. And youre trying both of them. Business lessons Not spending to get out of debt is the lesson Adams intends to use as a commissioner. I see were kind of scattershooting right now, trying to gobble up all of this, trying to bite off more than you can chew, Adams said. I think we need to reevaluate, rein in what were trying to accomplish and shoot a bullseye instead of birdshot. We need to set our sights on our target and tighten up our pattern and downsize what we are trying to accomplish, so we can make accomplishments that are valuable and will be beneficial through the long run. Adams said he did not favor cutting county services, an option explored in August, when about 600 residents met commissioners at the county auditorium in support of maintaining services. I think we can maintain them services; we just need to change the way we are doing business, Adams said. We need to look at the way we are hiring things out, delegating things out. Although the county has gone on record with downsizing more than 100 jobs, Adams would look to cutting its payroll for savings. I think taking a little off of staff administration (would save), Adams said. They need to get back to more productive work and allow things to be done differently. Weve got staff at every feel-good meeting in the county, but can we financially afford that anymore? Do we want to pay for that with a tax increase? Administratively, if we get more accountable, theres a ton of money to be saved. As a businessman, Adams said he has handled tough decisions. He brings this experience to his county service. Governments always going to tell you its a crisis and they need more. Governments great at that. Its about self-serving, protection. Thats the nature of the beast, Adams said. Can we get the same services with changing the way we do business? I say yes. I say we wont miss a stroke. Sometimes, if you cut your overheads, you may find out in certain areas youre more productive. Ive had to downsize, Ive had to change my business philosophy through this economy. Believe me, Ive done things I didnt want to, it broke my heart. The changes Adams made were to save his businesses. Ive had to restructure the way weve done business, reclassify job classifications to change the payroll, look at the duties that are done because youre doing less and less duties, he said. We have to understand the economy is down 50 percent almost and government keeps growing. Now how can that be? This is what weve got to understand: The nature of the beast were dealing with. Four projectsTo strengthen the countys economy, Adams has drawn up a plan of four projects. Develop and promote allterrain vehicle trails on state lands. Adams said 51 percent of county land is publicly owned. We need to promote all-terrain riding access vehicles like fourwheelers, not as in racing or high performance but as in family trails and riding trails on the uplands. They have them in the Ocala National Forest and in Georgia and what a financial impact it is. Its one thats cheap, so people do it. Think of the money they will spend to come up and stay in a hotel and eat lunch in a restaurant and come with the family and weve got some of the best areas over on the Gulf to our lakes and rivers. Complete four-laning of County Road 491. Weve got the new Walmart. It is a pain in the rear to get bottlenecked down and we do have doctors offices there. The right thing to do though is to handle the traffic safely and give good access for everybody who lives out there. We need to four-lane it just like we did County Road 486. Let the private sector come and build to that. Drop impact fees. It will not hurt us one bit right now to do that. It will help people meet the income-to-debt ratio to be capable of borrowing money. Ive helped at least 400 people get financing. Adams admitted: Its not going to set the world on fire. Were not going to be overrun by development. Were in a great depression in Citrus County and we need to take some drastic measures for private business and thats not subsidizing them. The long-term money from the ad valorem taxes when we get people here beats that little bit of impact fee all day long. Secure the Suncoast Parkway 2. This would be a big asset for this county. It would be a road of slow, slow economic recovery, but much better than where we are at to help us for the long term. Open for opinions Adams also is reaching out through the Internet. Weve got a Facebook page, were asking for county opinions, he said. Were open for suggestions, were open for opinions. Weve had a number of them. Most people want to see efficient, accountable government. Adams asked County Administrator Brad Thorpe six questions that are posted on his Facebook page and he awaits the answers. All six questions address county spending practices. Another outreach effort Adams plans to conduct will be town hall meetings. While he has yet to decide their frequency, he wants to host the first one in January. For his own philosophy, Adams keeps it simple: I like to plan long term and live a gradual moderate life.

Leo Paquette, 84 INVERNESS Leo M. Paquette, 84, of Inverness, Fla., passed away Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, at Hospice of Citrus County, Inverness. He was born Sept. 21, 1928, in Berlin, N.H., to the late Adolphe and MarieLouise (Cloutier) Paquette. Leo was a dairy maintenance supervisor and a U.S. Army veteran of World War II. He arrived in this area in 1994, coming from Enfield, Conn. Leo enjoyed playing pool, loved the seniors center, and spending time with his friends and family, and was a member of the Knights of Columbus. He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Yolande M. Paquette of Inverness. Other survivors include one son, Guy P Paquette of Newington, Conn.; two daughters, Susan (Fred) Frazao of Shrewsbury, Mass., and Pauline (Michael) Griffin of Enfield, Conn.; one sister, Ida (Vitti) Biretta of Cincinnati, Ohio; and seven grandchildren. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5, at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, with military honors and burial to follow at Florida National Cemetery, Bushnell, Fla. The family will be receiving friends at the funeral home at 9 a.m. Wednesday, prior to service. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Hospice of Citrus County, P .O. Box 641270, Beverly Hills, FL 34464. Chas E. Davis Funeral Home with Crematory, Inverness, Fla., is in charge of arrangements. Sign the guest book at www.chronicleonline.com.Robert Brown, 55DUNNELLON Robert M. Brown, 55, of Dunnellon, died Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012, under the care of Hospice of Citrus County in Inverness. Arrangements are by McGan Cremation Service LLC, Hernando. Institute of Certified Public Accountants and served several terms as a chamber of commerce board member, treasurer and president. He was elected Person of the Year by the three area unified chambers in 1992. He was active in the community since forever, said his son, Chuck Price. Hes been here since 1972. He enjoyed work and FSU football with his kids. He was very involved in our lives. He was the first CPA in the county. He was a great father to his kids. He was a super-hard worker. Ron Kitchen, former Crystal River mayor and city council member, said he knew Price for years and years. We went back for 25 years with the chamber of commerce, Kitchen said. The year I was president, Phil was the president elect. Thats when I really first met Phil. I got to know him through our chamber work together. In the last few years, I got to work with him on the city council, and I knew him as a businessman. Prices death was shocking, Kitchen said, because: He supported me in my campaign for county commission. Every time I talked to him, Id say, Ill see you around, and hed say, If Im still alive. I dont know if he knew he was in bad health or if he was joking. Its a shame to hear that. Kitchen said he appreciated Price for his responsibility to taxpayers. I knew him to be a very staunch fiscal conservative, Kitchen said. He was front and center when it came to the city fighting for reduced spending. No matter how much we reduced the millage, he felt we could reduce it more. We would pat ourselves on the back for doing a good job, but Phil would say, Oh, you could have done another millage point, Kitchen said. According to Kitchen, Price leaves an unsung legacy. He wasnt afraid to stand up for what he believed in, Kitchen said. He was a good advocate for the taxpayers. He was one of those guys who made a huge impact on the community, and I dont think a lot of people know all the good things he did. Maureen McNiff worked alongside Price on the city council. I had the greatest respect for him, McNiff said. He had a great financial mind. He did a lot of good things for the city. McNiff said Price was instrumental in reducing the millage rate and controlling the city budget. He certainly did a lot of service for the citizens, McNiff said. Hell be missed. Houston admitted he and Price did not always see eye to eye. Phil and I had a rocky time to begin with, Houston said. I think he thought I tried to undercut him on the issue of transitioning the city to the sheriffs office. But by the time he reached the end of his term we were working well together. I respected his financial knowledge and know he had the best interests for the city at heart. There was not exactly a lovefest between us, but I respect the qualities that he brought to the city council. Strickland Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements, which will be private by Prices wishes. He was humble, Chuck Price said.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916. and detailed long-range plan.

Page A8 MONDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2012 O PINION Coach deserved better Firing that coach for using profanity is absolutely ridiculous. If thats the case, children watch TV; are you going to arrest everybody that has profanity on TV? You think theyre going to go through the rest of their life with never hearing it? ... Its absolutely ridiculous. Its life and we cant stop it. Display certain valuesThat person that wrote in to the Sound Off about he thought it was terrible because that Crystal River coach got suspended and fired because he used profanity He thinks its OK to talk to high school kids like that. ... Learning some core values as a human being, especially at the high school level, is very important in life. ... Its a shame. If you want to continue that sort of vocabulary there are places you can move to where that is the total way of life.Lot to learnFriday, Nov. 23s issue, in reference to Stop babying athletes. Well, this fellows got a lot to learn. He needs a better education. That means we should start getting rid of policemen because theres murders and murders have been going on for centuries. Should we stop using policemen? ing Crosby would be appalled. With singer Carol Richards, the great crooner once popularized a song, Silver Bells, about the joy of Christmas shopping. Strings of street lights, it went, even stop lights, blink a bright red and green as the shoppers rush home with their treasures. Of course, that was in 1950, a more genteel era when men still wore hats and women still wore gloves. These days, one would be well-advised to wear Kevlar. In 2008, a Walmart worker named Jdimytai Damour was trampled to death by a mob of holiday shoppers who broke down the doors of a store in Valley Stream, N.Y. In 2011 a woman in Los Angeles used pepper spray on a group of shoppers vying for video game consoles. That pleasant chore of holiday shopping about which Crosby sang has long since mutated into an annual ritual of mass psychosis called Black Friday. About the best that can be said of this years Black Friday is that nobody died. Two people were shot in Tallahassee, in what police say was a dispute over a parking space. In San Antonio, a man allegedly cut the line and punched a guy who complained. The guy who was punched pulled a gun. In Moultrie, Ga., there was a near riot over cellphones. In Sacramento, Calif., a man threatened to stab anybody who pushed his kids. And as people were thus celebrating the season of thanksgiving, redemption and light, the Rev. Nancy was saying grace over two cups of Jell-O. She is my pastors mother, a preacher in her own right, who took ill on Thanksgiving eve and had to be rushed to the emergency room. She spent the holiday in the hospital and her son was so moved by watching her give thanks for Jell-O that he preached about it Sunday. Maybe you say to yourself, well, yeah, but what is Jell-O to be thankful for? Especially when everybody else is gorging on turkey and ham and dressing and greens and mac and cheese and pies and cakes? But when your last meal was intravenous, Jell-O is quite a lot. This is not a church, so there will be no sermon, only an observation that, whatever ones belief structure or lack thereof, there is something to be said for learning to be content in the face of circumstances you cannot change. Otherwise, you are in for a bumpy ride through this life. Folks forget that sometimes. Heck, folks forget it all the time. The trouble with you and me, my friend, Don Henley once sang, is the trouble with this nation. Too many blessings, too little appreciation. Or as the serenity prayer puts it: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Such sentiments are necessarily at odds with the cult of consumption and its belief that one is incomplete until one buys what the store is selling, that one can change ones entire life, find wholeness and a better self, in the things one owns. It is a faith the word is used advisedly that finds expression each year in scenes of people surging into temples of commerce, pulling guns and getting into fistfights while trying to buy things they feel they need. But the things we need most in this life cannot be found in temples of commerce or bought at any price. Did more of us know that, back in the era when men still wore hats and women gloves? Maybe. Or maybe thats just a trick of memory, painting olden days in sepia tones. So fine. No olden days; no sepia tones here. But you dont have to go back to 1950 to marvel at how some of us define what matters in this life. You can just go back to last week, to a holiday weekend some folks spent camping at the mall and punching one another in the face and at least one of us spent in a hospital bed giving thanks for Jell-O. Something in that juxtaposition makes you want to pause, reconfigure your ideas of what truly matters in this life and what, ultimately, does not. Perhaps thats only to be expected when a woman is able to locate grace in a gelatin snack as the shoppers rush home with their treasures.

Awaiting decisionLetter to the community of Citrus County, The CCHB of Trustees continues to await the first DCA decision on the constitutionality of Section 16 of Florida Law 2011256. It is our thought and desire to have already received such decision. But, as many of you know, this is not the case. However, the CCHB continues to pursue its responsibility of openness and transparency of governance of CMHS and ensuring that quality of care is provided to members of our community by CMHS staff and community physicians. As we await the decision, guidelines as mandated by Florida Statute 155.40 have been initiated. The CCHB and the CMHF Boards have begun to have open and collaborative meetings to discuss this process. There have been no decisions made at this time. Also, the two boards are nearing resolutions of many issues and are planning continued meetings together to discuss the Strategic Plan, the future of CMHS, the preservation in delivery of quality of care to members of our community, and for applause to CMHS employees who contribute daily by their actions in caring for others. All are encouraged to attend our meetings and share in the future plans for our hospital. Feel free to contact CCHB via phone, 352-341-2245 or visit us at our new office location 123 Pine Ave.Debbie Ressler, R.N. chairwoman for CCHB Use of public building I read in Sundays (Nov. 25) paper that a group calling themselves Americans United for Separation of Church and State (Nature Coast Chapter) has scheduled a meeting at the public library in Inverness. This I find very upsetting. If they need a place to meet, it should not be in a government facility that is owned by the people. If an organization like Christians for Clean Government (I just made that up, to make a point) were to schedule meeting at a public owned location, the ACLU and the left would protest. Its my opinion that if there was ever a time when our government, local, state and federal, needs prayer and help from almighty God, its now.Gary Lee Meiman Sr. Homosassa Paying for food stamps I like to thank all the Citrus County staff and workers on this Thanksgiving Day. I only hope you didnt have to buy that turkey with food stamps. I find it very hard to understand why some of our county workers have to rely on food stamps to get by. In my last letter I asked that you all be given a raise so you didnt have to rely on food stamp to get by. It seems that the people of Citrus think you get paid well. Dont the people know that they pay for those food stamps and it would be cheaper on their taxes if we raised your pay. The people of this county need to do the math and they will find out it is cheaper to raise your pay then keep you qualified for food stamps. People of Citrus County, we pay for those food stamps that they rely on. Wake up.Charles Knecht Sr. Dunnellon T he recent FloridaDistracted Driving summit in Tampa brought a swath of interests together, united in concern about activities that take motorists eyes off the road, hands off the wheel and focus away from driving. The thrust of the conference wasnt solely there ought to be a law, but in addition to technological advances and education therereally ought to be a law. Floridas among a minority of states where its OK to text while navigating thousands of pounds of steel at a high rate of speed with motorists passing by, traffic signals changing, school buses stopping and crosswalks guiding pedestrian across busy streets. Law enforcement, state and federal transportation officials, medical professionals, insurance concernsand others at the summit were in broad agreement that failure to acknowledge and act upon the dangers of distracted driving is to further court disaster. The speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, according to the Ocala Star-Banner indicates a willingness to consider safety measures but mingled that with a concern for individual rights. While thats fine and dandyfrom one standpoint, driving is a privilege and the highways are not the domain of any one motorist. Were that the case, drinking and driving would be acceptable, there would be no seat belt law and speed limits would simply be a suggestion. A moving account of a tragedy offered at the summit stemmed from a Marion County accident in which asemi collided with a school bus, killing a 13-year-old student. While thats tragic in and of itself, a member of a group of North Marion High School students implored officials to take action,noting the deaths of 10 current or former North Marion students in a five-year period as a result of accidents involving cellphone use, alcohol or speeding. U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood noted the benefits that have resulted from the Click It or Ticket seatbelt campaign and law, saying ithas helped to foster good habits among drivers an estimated 86 percent of whom buckle up when behind the wheel now. While education and technological advancements that enable improved attention to driving such as hands-free cellphones are imperative, more is needed. Ifa motorist is pulled over for reckless driving, and is texting, gabbing on the phone or all-around multitasking, law enforcement should have the ability to dissuade such behavior with a similar bite to whatone receives if not wearing a seatbelt, ignoring speed limits or blowing through a school zone. According to LaHood, 416,000 American were injured as a result of distracted-driving car crashes last year and 3,000 were killed. While individual rights are important, life comes before liberty and the pursuit of happiness in the Declaration of Independence. It should come before liberty and the pursuit of happiness on our highways, too.

Ram on the lam DES MOINES, Iowa A shaggy brown sheep successfully dodged police, his handlers and a few cars while trotting through downtown Des Moines after escaping from his trailer. But the rams freedom only lasted about an hour Friday before he was cornered and tackled by about a half dozen of his pursuers. The Navajo-Churro ram jumped from a trailer near the Iowa Capitol on Friday morning. He led police, Animal Rescue League officials and some Capitol workers on a chase. Video from KCCI-TV shows the animal strolling along downtown sidewalks and streets, resembling a wooly ball of hair bouncing on tiny legs and picking up speed when someone gets too close. Authorities said the ram was being taken from Creston to Cedar Rapids. Bambi wins race WASHINGTON, Pa. Spectators who came to watch horses at a western Pennsylvania racetrack got a surprise last week when three deer got onto the course first and beat the horses to racing. According to KDKA-TV, a race was about to begin Wednesday night at the Meadows Racetrack in Washington County when the deer jumped onto the track. Race announcer Roger Huston didnt miss a beat. He began calling the race as it unfolded, saying things like: As they race down the track, Bambi has the lead. Here comes Rudolph from the outside. The deer ran fast but kept changing directions. At one point, they appeared headed to the paddock, where the horses were being held. Several minutes into the show, the deer decided to leave the track to the horses. Huston said Bambi won the race. Toilet paper returnedPORTALES, N.M. University officials said a New Mexico college graduate, apparently feeling guilty over a student prank years ago, has sent a box of toilet paper to repay the school for loot taken from a dormitory. Eastern New Mexico University said it received the yuletide gift box last week along with a Christmas card and written apology. The box contained five packages of 16 rolls of two-ply, septic-safe tissue for a total of 80 rolls. The anonymous writer apologized for stealing bathroom tissue years ago and said a new dedication to Christian faith led to the deed. It was unclear whether the gift itself was a prank. But university officials said all is forgiven. The toilet paper is being donating to a nearby charity because it doesnt fit the schools dispensers. Zebra takes jaunt NEW YORK New York City can be like a zoo sometimes, but a zebra running wild through the streets is not something you ordinarily see. The Staten Island Advance reported a zebra and a miniature horse were spotted trotting through a shopping center parking lot Wednesday morning in Staten Island. Metropolitan Drape & Blind owner Zachary Osher saw the runaway equines and shared his video with the newspaper. He said the animals ran down a street and narrowly escaped being hit by a car. He said two men in dark suits ran after them with lassoes. A police spokesman said the animals were corralled and returned to a petting zoo. Wrong chicken servedPOINT MARION, Pa. A district judge has dismissed assault and harassment charges against a southwestern Pennsylvania man who allegedly fought with his son and daughter-in-law after he was served chicken that was baked, when he wanted it fried. The judge dismissed the charges Thursday against 45year-old George Rhome, of Point Marion, after the alleged victims failed to show up for a preliminary hearing on the charges. The hearing had been rescheduled three times since Rhome was arrested Aug. 27. Court records show he spent four days in jail before posting bail. The incident occurred in Point Marion, a tiny borough on the West Virginia border, about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh. A man who answered a phone listed in Rhomes name said it was a wrong number Thursday night. His public defender could not immediately be reached after hours. Coyotes visit Chicago CHICAGO Wild baseball fans are a standard sight at Chicagos historic Wrigley Field. But a pair of wild coyotes wasnt what photographer Will Byington was expecting on a busy Friday night. Byington was shooting a concert at a bar across the street from the stadium when he saw the two coyotes near the ticketing area. The ballpark is surrounded by bars, restaurants and busy streets. Byington said the animals seemed unfazed by the honking horns and packed sidewalks, and joked that maybe they were on a date, taking a stroll. Wildlife ecologist Stanley Gehrt has extensively studied coyotes living in and around Chicago. He said coyotes have been in the area for the past decade and that Cook County, where Chicago is located, has at least 2,000 of the animals. 100 weddings offYUMA, Ariz. Plans for the extra big day just couldnt get off the ground. Organizers who had hoped to have 100 couples marry at a ceremony in Yuma next month have called off the event because they werent able to get enough couples to commit to the party to make it financially feasible. Organizer Perla Wicks told the Yuma Sun she had hoped for 100 couples to pay $300 per pair to get married on Dec. 12 or 12/12/12 in the Historic Yuma Theatre at noon, of course on this numerically auspicious day. Organizers needed commitments from 51 couples to break even. Wicks said she will refund the money an undisclosed number of people put down for the event. Deer goes shopping CORALVILLE, Iowa Shoppers in Iowa got an unusual glimpse of wildlife Monday morning when a doe and two fawns wandered into a department store. Coralville Police Chief Barry Bedford said the deer used doors that open automatically to get into a Kohls department store. He said the fawns stayed in the stores vestibule, but their mother made it into the store and headed toward the back. Police said employees opened up some back doors and the doe exited. The two fawns turned around and used the automatic exit doors to leave the store. No injuries or damages were reported. Ad rejectedJOHANNESBURG South Africas national broadcaster has rejected an advertisement featuring a cartoon version of President Jacob Zuma enjoying a bargain fast-food dinner of fish and chips. The advertisement takes place inside a mansion named after his familys rural home thats received $23 million in state-funded renovations. The ad had been scheduled to air Monday night on SABC, but the television broadcaster declined to show it. Kaizer Kganyago, a spokesman for SABC, said the broadcaster refused to air the ad as its officials believed it implied Zuma himself lent his credibility to the food deal. The advertisement for Fish and Chips Co. that SABC declined to air, however, merely adds to a number of spots recently designed to play on ethnic or political divisions to spark controversy and free publicity.

Ex-President Bush in stable condition HOUSTON Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush remains in stable condition at a Houston hospital where he is being treated for a lingering cough related to bronchitis. George Kovacik, a spokesman for Methodist Hospital, said Sunday there has been no change over the last couple of days in the status of the 88-year-old Bush. Aides originally said the 41st president could be released from the hospital this weekend. But his cough has yet to clear up, meaning he has stayed put while doctors play it safe. Hazardous gas still being cleared in NJPAULSBORO, N.J. Officials said more than 100 southern New Jersey residents will be kept out of their homes for several more days as crews work to clear a hazardous gas that spewed from a ruptured freight train car. Noting that the hazardous material is still in the area, officials said Sunday the Paulsboro, N.J., residents wont be able to return to their homes in the 12-block evacuation zone until at least Saturday. Public schools will be open on Monday, but a day care center and the municipal courts will be closed. Talks continue on day 6 of port strikeLOS ANGELES Contract talks between clerical workers at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and shippers have resumed as the strike entered a sixth day on Sunday. The walkout has dramatically slowed activity at the nations busiest cargo complex as dockworkers refuse to cross picket lines set up by union clerical workers. The clerical workers began striking Tuesday to raise the ante in a 2 1/2-year-old contract battle over claims that management had been outsourcing their well-paid jobs out of state and overseas. Nigers president vows to help Mali NIAMEY, Niger Nigers president said his country is ready to help Mali regain its northern region which is occupied by Islamist rebels. Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou spoke Sunday after meeting with Mali president Dioncounda Traore. The leaders strongly urged all rebel movements in Mali to abandon the armed struggle, to break with the North Africa branch of alQaida and to recognize Malis territorial integrity. The leaders also appealed to the U.N. Security Council to endorse a military intervention to free northern Mali that would have thousands of African soldiers deployed for one year. A March coup allowed rebels, including at least three groups with ties to al-Qaida, to grab control of the nations distant north, an enormous triangle of land that includes borders with Mauritania, Algeria and Niger.Thousands attend anti-Nazi rally BUDAPEST, Hungary Thousands of people attended an anti-Nazi rally organized by Hungarian Jewish and civic groups to protest a far right lawmakers call for the screening of Jews for national security risks. Sundays rally was uncommon because politicians from government and opposition parties shared a stage set up outside parliament. Marton Gyongyosi of the far right Jobbik party said Monday in the legislature it was time to assess ... how many people of Jewish origin there are here, and especially in the Hungarian parliament and the Hungarian government, who represent a certain national security risk for Hungary. Attila Mesterhazy said his opposition Socialist Party would boycott Parliaments foreign affairs committee as long as Gyongyosi remains its vice chairman. The Israeli and U.S. ambassadors also attended the rally.

Norton Shores fire Chief Robert Gagnon said five people were staying in the lodge when the fire broke out, and all escaped without injury, according to reports from The Muskegon Chronicle Hotel fire Cliff talks: White House waiting on GOP Associated PressWASHINGTON Republicans have to stop using political math and say how much they are willing to raise tax rates on the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans and then specify the spending cuts they want, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said in an interview that aired Sunday. Just four weeks from the proverbial fiscal cliff, House Speaker John Boehner countered that Republicans have a plan for providing as much as $800 billion in new government revenue over the next decade and would consider the elimination of tax deductions on highincome earners. But when pressed on Fox News Sunday for precise details, the Ohio Republican declined to say. There are a lot of options in terms of how to get there, Boehner said. Both Boehners and Geithners latest remarks indicate it could be some time before serious negotiations begin between the White House and Republicans on how to avert economic calamity expected in less than a month when President George W. Bush-era tax cuts expire and automatic, across-the-board spending cuts kick in. Last week, the White House delivered to Capitol Hill its opening plan: $1.6 trillion in higher taxes over a decade, hundreds of billions of dollars in new spending, a possible extension of the temporary Social Security payroll tax cut and enhancing the presidents power to raise the national debt limit. In exchange, the president would back $600 billion in spending cuts, including $350 billion from Medicare and other health programs. But he also wants $200 billion in new spending for jobless benefits, public works projects and aid for struggling homeowners. His proposal for raising the ceiling on government borrowing would make it virtually impossible for Congress to block him. Republicans said they responded in closed-door meetings with laughter and disbelief. I was just flabbergasted, Boehner said. I looked at him (Geithner) and I said, You cant be serious. Boehner described negotiations as going nowhere, period, and said theres clearly a chance the nation will go over the cliff. Geithner, the administrations point man for negotiations, was slightly more optimistic while saying the ball was in Boehners court. But the treasury secretary also said he didnt expect a counteroffer right away, as Republicans work to sort out tensions within the party in the wake of bruising national elections that left Democrats in charge of the White House and the Senate. Associated Press Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Sunday on an episode of Face the Nation Republicans have to stop using fuzzy political math and say how much they are willing to raise tax rates on the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans, and then specify the spending cuts they want. Associated PressCAIRO Egypts rebellion of the judges against President Mohammed Morsi became complete on Sunday with the countrys highest court declaring an open-ended strike on the day it was supposed to rule on the legitimacy of two key assemblies controlled by allies of the Islamist leader. The strike by the Supreme Constitutional Court and opposition plans to march on the presidential palace on Tuesday take the countrys latest political crisis to a level not seen in the nearly two years of turmoil since Hosni Mubaraks ouster in a popular uprising. Judges from the countrys highest appeals court and its sister lower court were already on an indefinite strike, joining colleagues from other tribunals who suspended work last week to protest what they saw as Morsis assault on the judiciary. The last time Egypt had an all-out strike by the judiciary was in 1919, when judges joined an uprising against British colonial rule. The standoff began when Morsi issued decrees on Nov. 22 giving him near-absolute powers that granted himself and the Islamistdominated assembly drafting the new constitution immunity from the courts. The constitutional panel then raced in a marathon session last week to vote on the charters 236 clauses without the participation of liberal and Christian members. The fast-track hearing pre-empted a decision from the Supreme Constitutional Court that was widely expected to dissolve the constituent assembly. The judges on Sunday postponed their ruling on that case just before they went on strike. Without a functioning justice system, Egypt will be plunged even deeper into turmoil. It has already seen a dramatic surge in crime after the uprising, while state authority is being challenged in many aspects of life and the courts are burdened by a massive backlog of cases. The country cannot function for long like this, something has to give, said Negad Borai, a private law firm director and a rights activist. Egypts anti-Morsi rebellion of judges complete Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Residents of Northern California endured the brunt of another powerful storm that drenched the area with yet another round of pounding rain and strong winds, but damage from the storm was less than expected, officials said. The latest storm system the third to hit the area in less than a week moved across the region late Saturday and early Sunday dropping as much as an inch of rain per hour in some areas, toppling trees and knocking out electrical service to tens of thousands of people, officials said. Rivers across Northern California swelled from the deluge, but did not flood as extensively as had been expected, officials said. Forecasters had issued flood warnings for the Napa and Russian rivers, two rivers north of San Francisco with a history of flooding, as well as the Truckee River, near Lake Tahoe, but by Sunday afternoon had canceled the warning for the Russian River. It (the storm) moved through a lit bit faster than it was looking like it would, so it didnt plant on top of us and keeping raining, said Austin Cross, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The period of heavy rain didnt last as long. In Napa, where officials had handed out more than 8,000 sandbags and about 150 tons of sand before the storm hit, officials breathed a sigh of relief Sunday afternoon after the heaviest rain moved out of the area and the city appeared to avoid any major damage from the storm. Weve had some minor street flooding and some of the intersections were flooded, Napa city spokesman Barry Martin said. Flood construction projects were credited with keeping the river within its banks through the city, while most of anticipated flooding, expected around 6 p.m. Sunday, was expected to hit a mostly agricultural area outside of the city, officials said. In Truckee, 30 miles west of Reno, city officials were focusing on snow removal Sunday afternoon instead of flood control after the town received 4 to 5 inches of snow in the morning, said Assistant City Manager Alex Terrazas. We continue to keep an eye on the river, but things are certainly better than they could have been, he said. Well transition back to flood management if we need to. Besides the speed in which the system moved through the area, weather officials were heartened by colder temperatures than expected in the mountains, meaning more snow and less rain fell. In far Northern California, flood warnings remained in effect Sunday for the Eel, Navarro and Mad rivers.

Pittsburgh won the game 27-3. Associated PressTAMPA Skip Holtz was fired as South Floridas football coach after two straight losing seasons in which the program fell back instead of progressed. Athletic director Doug Woolard made the announcement Sunday after meeting with Holtz individually and then accompanying the former coach to a gathering with players. A search for a replacement will begin immediately, with no definitive timetable for naming the successor. It was a very difficult meeting and one I will tell you that Skip handled very professionally and very classy as he always does, Woolard said during a news conference. It was a matter of just not having the production that we needed to have over the last couple of years on the field. ... Every program experiences highs and lows on the way to national prominence, Woolard added. Brighter days are ahead. The son of former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz went 16-21 at the Big East school, concluding a threeyear run with the worst season in school history. The Bulls lost nine of 10 to finish 3-9, 1-6 in the conference, following a 2-0 start. The firing came a year after Holtz was given a contract extension through 2017 despite going 5-7 in his second season. He will receive a $2.5 million buyout paid over five years. In a statement released by USF, Holtz thanked his assistant coaches and players for their dedication and loyalty. Im extremely proud of how they fought through adversity during this time. Throughout my time here the young men on this team never gave up, and that reflects on their character as individuals and as a team, Holtz said.

Associated Press DENVER P eyton Manning threw a touchdown to a defensive lineman and completed another pass to a receiver who was flat on his back. It wasnt until the Broncos quarterback started using more traditional methods most notably, looking for receiver Demaryius Thomas that Denver started running away from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to clinch the AFC West. Manning threw three touchdown passes, one to defensive tackle Mitch Unrein and two more to Thomas, to help the Broncos wrap up the division title Sunday with a 31-23 victory over the Buccaneers. The loss by Tampa Bay (6-6) clinched the NFC South for the Atlanta Falcons. Manning finished 27 for 38 for 242 yards. His second touchdown pass gave him 28 on the year and moved him past Jake Plummer and John Elway for the most TD passes for a Denver quarterback in a single season.

Against the backdrop of an unthinkable tragedy, the Kansas City Chiefs gave themselves a reason to be proud Sunday and perhaps the impetus to let the healing begin. Brady Quinn threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns, and Jamaal Charles ran for 127 yards in the Chiefs 27-21 victory over their Carolina Panthers. The win snapped an eight-game losing streak during one of the most difficult seasons the franchise has ever experienced. The win came just one day after Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend multiple times at a residence near Arrowhead Stadium, then drove to the teams practice facility and turned the gun on himself as general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel looked on. Pioli walked through the press box before the game and said he was doing OK, though he didnt stop to talk. Crennel was on the sideline coaching his team to an uplifting victory.Patriots 23, Dolphins 16 MIAMI Tom Brady had his least efficient game of the year and even threw an interception, but New England took advantage of Miamis mistakes and clinched their fourth consecutive AFC East title. A botched punt, roughing-the-punter penalty and fumble by Miami led to 17 New England points, and another penalty negated a Dolphins touchdown. Brady finished 24 for 40 for 238 yards and was sacked four times. But with the Patriots nursing a 20-13 lead midway through the fourth quarter, he led a 16play drive that took more than seven minutes and led to a field goal. The Patriots (9-3) have won six games in a row and are assured of their 12th consecutive winning season. Miami (5-7) lost to New England for the fifth consecutive time. Texans 24, Titans 10NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Houston Texans clinched their second straight playoff berth and set a franchise record for wins in a season. Rookie linebacker Whitney Mercilus recovered a fumble and had two sacks, and the Texans (11-1) remain tied with Atlanta for the best record in the NFL with their sixth straight win. After needing overtime the past two games, the Texans forced six turnovers and had six sacks of Jake Locker when they werent batting down a handful of other passes. Rams 16, 49ers 13 (OT) ST. LOUIS Rookie Greg Zuerlein kicked a 54-yard field goal with 26 seconds left in overtime after booting a 53yarder as time expired in regulation. The winning kick allowed the Rams to avoid a second tie in three weeks against the NFC West leaders. The Rams (5-6-1) scored twice in the final 3:04 of regulation, getting their lone touchdown when rookie Janoris Jenkins returned an errant pitchout by Colin Kaepernick 2 yards for a score. Theyve won two straight after an 0-4-1 skid. Seahawks 23, Bears 17 (OT) CHICAGO Russell Wilson connected with Sidney Rice on a 13-yard touchdown with 7:33 left in overtime to lift Seattle. Unbeaten in five home games, the Seahawks finally figured a way to win on the road after dropping five of their first six, and knocked off the NFC North leaders in the process. Seattle took a short-lived lead late in regulation on Wilsons 14-yard pass to Golden Tate, only to watch the Bears Robbie Gould boot a 46-yard field goal as time expired to send it into OT.Colts 35, Lions 33 DETROIT Andrew Luck threw a 14yard touchdown pass to Donnie Avery with no time left to lift Indianapolis. With the final seconds ticking away, the rookie quarterback moved up in the pocket, flipped a short pass to Avery, and the receiver ran untouched into the end zone to complete a rally that started with Lions up 12 points midway through the fourth quarter. The Colts (8-4) stayed in control of the AFC wild-card race with the win. Packers 23, Vikings 14GREEN BAY, Wis. James Starks had Green Bays first rushing touchdown in almost two months, Morgan Burnett picked off Christian Ponder twice and the Packers overcame a monster day by Adrian Peterson. Peterson finished with 210 yards, the most hes had since blowing out his ACL and MCL last December. But the Vikings (6-6) clearly felt the absence of Percy Harvin, who missed his third straight game with a sprained ankle. Ponder didnt help matters with his interceptions, one in the end zone and the other around the Green Bay 10. The Packers turned both miscues into field goals. The win also keeps the Packers (8-4) hopes for the division title alive. Jets 7, Cardinals 6EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Thirdstringer Greg McElroy stepped in for a struggling Mark Sanchez and led New York to its only score. With Tim Tebow inactive as he heals from two broken ribs, coach Rex Ryan pulled Sanchez for McElroy as the crowd at MetLife Stadium cheered wildly late in the third quarter. McElroy led the Jets (5-7) to their only points of the day with an impressive drive, connecting with Jeff Cumberland on a 1-yard touchdown. That ended up being the winning score. Fans chanted Mc-El-roy! throughout the first three quarters as Sanchez went 10 for 27 for 91 yards and three interceptions. Bills 34, Jaguars 18 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Ryan Fitzpatrick directed five straight scoring drives in helping Buffalo keep alive its slim playoff hopes. Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes and scored on a 1-yard plunge in providing a spark to an injury-depleted offense. Fred Jackson had 101 yards rushing and C.J. Spiller scored on a 44-yard run that put Buffalo (5-7) up 34-10 early in the fourth quarter. The Jaguars fell to 2-10. Browns 20, Raiders 17OAKLAND, Calif. Brandon Weeden threw for a career-high 364 yards and a touchdown and the Cleveland Browns did just enough to snap a 12-game road losing streak. Weeden hit fellow rookie Josh Gordon on a 44-yard score in the second quarter and Trent Richardson scored on a 3-yard run after Sheldon Brown made a key interception deep in Cleveland territory when the Raiders (3-9) were driving for the potential tying or go-ahead score in the fourth quarter. It all added up to the first road win for the Browns (4-8) since beating Indianapolis 27-19 on Sept. 18, 2011.Bengals 20, Chargers 13SAN DIEGO Andy Dalton scrambled up the middle for a 6-yard touchdown with 4:11 left for the go-ahead score and the Cincinnati Bengals won their fourth straight, 20-13, over the San Diego Chargers. The Bengals (7-5) remained tied with Pittsburgh in the race for the AFCs second wild-card berth. The Chargers (4-8) lost their fourth straight and for the seventh time in eight games, and remain only mathematically alive in the wild-card chase. Associated Press Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman is stopped Sunday by Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs (55), inside linebacker Jameel McClain (53), outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw (91) and cornerback Corey Graham (24) defense during the second half in Baltimore. Associated PressBALTIMORE Ben Roethlisberger couldnt have done it any better. Third-string quarterback Charlie Batch directed a 61-yard drive in the closing minutes, and Shaun Suisham kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Pittsburgh Steelers a 2320 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Playing without the injured Roethlisberger for a third straight week, the Steelers turned to the 37-year-old Batch for the second game in a row. He went 25 for 36 for 276 yards, threw a touchdown and rallied the Steelers past their arch rivals in the AFC North. Pittsburgh trailed 13-3 in the first half and 20-13 in the fourth quarter before coming back. Batch missed a wide open Mike Wallace in the end zone near the end of the first half, but the veteran quarterback more than made up for it after halftime. Pittsburgh (7-5) snapped a two-game losing streak and kept alive its slim hopes of overtaking Baltimore (9-3) in the division. The teams have split their games this season, with each team winning by three points. The Ravens could have clinched a playoff berth with a victory. Instead, Baltimore had its 15-game home winning streak snapped and also lost for the first time in 13 games against division foes. Batch outplayed Baltimores Joe Flacco, who went 16 for 34 for 188 yards and fueled Pittsburghs comeback by fumbling in the fourth quarter. One week after committing eight turnovers in a loss to Cleveland, the Steelers gave the ball away three times against Baltimore. The Ravens converted two of the takeaways into touchdowns, and the third a leaping interception by Ed Reed in the end zone kept a 20-13 lead intact with 10:59 left. NFL CAPSULES After falling behind 3113, Tampa Bay pulled within eight late. The Broncos got in victory formation twice at the end and, as is Bucs coach Greg Schianos wont, the Bucs defense contested the plays. That led to pushing and shoving at the end, but no coach-to-coach conflict the way Giants coach Tom Coughlin confronted Schiano earlier in the season under similar circumstances. Despite Denvers big numbers, which included eight catches for 99 yards for Thomas, this was a farfrom-perfect effort. Manning was frustrated in this first half, as a series of penalties, bad throws and missed protec tions kept him on the bench.That gave him plenty of timeto coach up the linemen and receivers. Once, flushedout of the pocket, Manning kept a drive going by zinging a dart for a third-and-1 completion to Knowshon Moreno, who had fallen down in the flat. The quarterback laughed about that one, but the only real highlight of the first half was his 1-yard touchdown pass to Unrein, the second-year player from Wyoming, who became the first defensive lineman to catch a touchdown pass in Broncos history. Unrein also played into another score, hitting Tampa quarterback Josh Freeman as he threw in the third quarter. That resulted in an interception to Von Miller, who went 26 yards for the score that made it 28-10. The Broncos defense did a nice job on Tampa Bay rookie Doug Martin, who finished with 56 yards on 18 carries and was never a factor. Still, the Bucs played the first half like the contender they have become. Freeman found Mike Williams in single coverage down the middle for a 40-yard gain. Martin followed with a 7-yard run, then another for 5, then Freeman found Dallas Clark for an 11-yard touchdown and a 10-7 lead. But when they came out after halftime, Denver was a different team.

With the popularity of both programs, the second-to-last BCS title game is expected to be the highest rated ever. In two years, college football switches to a four-team playoff to determine its champion. No doubt fans of Florida (11-1), Oregon (11-1), Stanford (11-2) and Kansas State (11-1) wish they could push the start date up on that. Notre Dame is the only undefeated team that is eligible thanks to Ohio States NCAA sanctions and Alabama is the champion of the league that has produced the last half-dozen national champs. Roll Tide or return to glory? To be determined in South Florida.

But I understand the administrations decision and wish them nothing but success in the future. Holtz inherited a program that Jim Leavitt built from scratch, signing a $9.1 million, five-year contract in January 2010 after Leavitt was fired for mistreating a player who had accused the former coach of grabbing him by the throat and slapping him in the face during halftime of a game. The 48-year-old Holtz came to USF from East Carolina, where he had guided the Pirates to a pair of Conference USA championships. He welcomed the challenge of stepping into the Big East and trying to transform the Bulls, ranked as high as No. 2 in the country in 2007, into an elite program. But it did not happen. The Bulls went 8-5 and appeared in a bowl game for the sixth consecutive season two years ago, but in 2011 USF won four straight to climb into the Top 25 only to drop seven of eight down the stretch and tumble to the bottom of the conference. USF has lost 14 of its past 16 against Big East opponents and was 5-16 overall in league play under Holtz, who stated boldly after taking the job: We can win conference championships here. We can win national championships here. The dismissal came the day after the Bulls concluded with a 27-3 loss to Pittsburgh. Holtz said afterward that he hoped to retain his job, reiterating that the program had made strides under his direction, including academics, that werent necessarily reflected in the win-loss record. Woolard acknowledged as much, lauding the fired coach for setting a new USF standard for team GPA and working tirelessly to mold our football players into outstanding young men. However my responsibility ... is clear, Woolard added. We must strive to put a more successful football program on the field. Injuries hurt this years team, particularly on offense, where the Bulls lost quarterback B.J. Daniels, No. 3 on the Big Easts career total yardage list, and red-shirt freshman Matt Floyd started the last two games. By the end of Saturdays loss, tight end/emergency backup QB Evan Landi was playing. Pitt limited the Bulls to a USF record-low 117 yards, including 8 rushing. The offense scored one touchdown in the final 15 quarters of the season and USF was outscored 94-22 in the final three games of the season. Holtz is 88-71 overall in 13 seasons at Connecticut, East Carolina and USF. Bernhard earned second place with a gross score of 221. Travis Carroll won the net title with a combined net score of 212 four strokes better than Cory Gibbs, who scored 216. In the Womens Open, Sonja Dixon took home the club title with a one-stroke win over Cindy Shelton in the closest finish of the tournament. Dixon combined for a two-day gross score of 167 (85, 82), while Shelton penciled a 168 (85, 83). Linda Hertig was the net total champion with a twoday total of 136, followed by Pat Whipple in second place with a 142. The Mens Senior White Tee gross champion was Dave Pollard, who notched a two-day total of 156 four strokes better than secondplace finisher David Colson (160). The net champion was Jim Olmstead (137), while second place fell to William Dixon (143). Gary Bennett came through as Mens Senior Gold Tee gross champion with a combined two-day score of 171. David Wells (137) claimed the net total title. Bev Black entered the second day firmly in the lead and finished that way as the Womens Silver Tee champion. Black combined for a two-day score of 181, followed by Frances Lawless, who shot a two-round total of 196. Jean Neil shot a two-round net total of 136, good enough for first place, while four strokes back Fran Hayes came in second with a 140. Portions of the proceeds from the tournament, in the amount of several hundred dollars, are to be donated by the Inverness Golf and Country Club to the Citrus County Blessings in a Backpack program, a nonprofit initiative that provides food for less fortunate school children to take home this holiday season.

M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 3, 2012 B5 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS Associated PressNEW YORK Baseballs all-time home run king and its most decorated pitcher likely will be shut out of the Hall of Fame in January. A survey by The Associated Press shows that Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, as well as slugger Sammy Sosa, dont have enough votes to get into Cooperstown. With steroid scandals still very much on the minds of longtime members of the Baseball Writers Association of America as they cast their ballots, the trio failed to muster even 50 percent support among the 112 voters contacted by the AP nearly one-fifth of those eligible to choose. Candidates need 75 percent for election. So Bonds, the only seventime MVP and Clemens, the only seven-time Cy Young Award winner, are likely to remain outside the Hall along with career hits leader Pete Rose, who was banned for betting on baseball as manager of the Cincinnati Reds. Im not going to vote for anybody who has been tainted or associated with steroids, said MLB.coms Hal Bodley, the former baseball columnist for USA Today. Im just not going to do it. I might change down the road, but I just love the game too much. I have too much passion for the game and for what these people did to it. The current ballot was announced this week and Bonds, Clemens and Sosa were on it for the first time. Votes will be cast throughout the month and results will be released Jan. 9. Among voters who expressed an opinion, Bonds received 45 percent support, Clemens 43 percent and Sosa 18 percent. To gain election, Bonds and Clemens would need more than 80 percent support among the voters not surveyed and Sosa would need to get more than 85 percent. No one would dare say that Bonds, a seven-time National League MVP with 762 home runs, isnt a Hall of Famer, Thom Loverro, a columnist for The Washington Examiner wrote in a column that explained his decision. Nor would anyone say that Clemens, with 354 career victories, 4,672 strikeouts and seven Cy Young Awards, shouldnt be enshrined in Cooperstown. The same goes for Sosa, who finished with 609 career home runs, including 243 of them from 1998 through 2001. Except they cheated all of them. And this Hall of Fame is not just about numbers. Three of the six criteria for election to Cooperstown are sportsmanship, integrity and character. Bonds, Sosa and Clemens fail on all three counts. The Denver PostsTroy Renck doesnt plan to vote for them, either. I understand that everyone has their opinion on this issue and I respect those, he said in a telephone interview. For me personally, having coached kids for the last decade and talked to them about doing things a certain way, I would feel very uncomfortable voting for anyone that is a known cheater.San Francisco Chroniclecolumnist Bruce Jenkins took the opposite view. The Hall of Fames character clause should be stricken immediately, because its far too late to turn Cooperstown into a church, he wrote in an email. Whether it was gambling (rampant in the early 20th century), scuffing the baseballs, corking bats, amphetamines or steroids, players have been cheating like crazy forever. Its an integral, if unsavory, part of the culture. Ive always had the same criteria: which players were the best performers of their particular era so absolutely, Ill vote for Bonds, Clemens and Sosa. Hall voters are BBWAA members who have been with the organization for 10 consecutive years at any point. The BBWAA does not release the full list. About 8-10 percent of the approximately 600 Hall of Fame voters are employees of the AP or freelance writers who work for the AP the BBWAA said. Players who have appeared in 10 seasons and have been retired for five years are eligible for consideration by a six-member BBWAA screening committee, and a player goes on the ballot if he is supported by at least two screening committee members. A player remains on the ballot for up to 15 elections as long as he gets 5 percent of the votes every year.

From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Associated PressTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Graeme McDowell kept trying to convince himself and everyone else that his game was improving, even though he had gone two years without a trophy to prove it. Thats what made Sunday at Sherwood so sweet. With a pair of superb short-game shots on the back nine, McDowell closed with a 4-under 68 to win the World Challenge by three shots over Keegan Bradley, allowing him to head home for a 10-week break with a shot of confidence. Its been too long. Its been a hell of a two years since I sat here as a winner, McDowell said. We all put winning up on a pedestal as the ultimate goal. We like to say that its all about the process and going through the motions and trying to get better. But lets be honest. We all measure ourselves by the win. I can say that now. The three-shot margin made it look easier than it was. Sherwood was playing longer than ever in a light rain, giving an advantage to a big hitter like Bradley, not to mention tournament host Tiger Woods. Even when McDowell built a four-shot lead through 11 holes, a careless three-putt bogey on the 13th brought Bradley within two shots with five holes to play. McDowell responded with a 75-foot putt that he lagged to tap-in range, a key moment for someone coming off a three-putt bogey. From a precarious spot behind the 17th green, he had to land his chip in the rough and hope it would hop onto the fringe and not run to far by the hole. He pulled it off perfectly. It was an inch away from sticking in the fringe, and about 1-16th of an inch away from going in the hole, he said. He made one last birdie he didnt need, extending his dominance at Sherwood. It was the 10th time in 12 rounds at Sherwood that McDowell has shot in the 60s, and he now has two wins and a runner-up finish in his three trips to the World Challenge. This really caps off my season, McDowell said. We try not to put winning on a pedestal, but this one feels very sweet because its been a grind all year. McDowell won for the first time since he beat Woods in a playoff at Sherwood to close out a dream season in 2010 that included his first major at the U.S. Open and the winning point for Europe at the Ryder Cup. This win followed a year of frustration. He played in the final group of the U.S. Open and British Open but came up short, and he lost some enthusiasm going into tournaments late in the year. He talked all week about a 10-week break, some of it in Northern Ireland and the rest in Orlando, Fla., where he just built a new house and hes opening a tavern outside the gates of Lake Nona. Bradley, who was within one shot after a birdie on the fifth hole, closed with a 69. Bo Van Pelt had a 70 to finish third. Woods, the tournament host and five-time champion, was never in the picture. He didnt make birdie until the 13th hole and shot 71 to tie for fourth. Graeme really likes this place, Bradley said. Just when I thought maybe Id have a good chance, hed hole a putt or hit a chip like he did on 17. Hes a champion. I dont expect anything less out of him. McDowell finished on 17-under 271 and earned $1 million against the 18man field. A light rain fell for much of the round, as it has all week, making Sherwood play so long that McDowell had to hit a 5-wood into the par-4 fourth hole, and a 4-iron for his third shot in the par-5 fifth. His only bogey over the final 47 holes of the tournament came on the 13th hole. Certainly I will draw some confidence from this one, McDowell said. Woods needed a fast start and was stuck in neutral. He failed to birdie the par 5s on the front nine and dropped a shot on the seventh hole when his flop shot below the green came out heavy. He didnt make his first birdie until the par-5 13th. I struggled with my game a little bit this week, said Woods, playing for the first time in five weeks. I just managed myself well to get around in these conditions. Van Pelt opened with two birdies and tried to hang around in contention on the back nine. But this was a duel from the start. McDowell started with a two-shot lead and kept his distance until Bradley holed an 18-foot birdie putt on the fifth. Bradley made back-toback bogeys at the turn to fall three shots behind, and McDowell stretched his lead to four shots by starting the back nine with two quick birdies. The par-5 13th then set the stage for a nervous final hour. McDowell laid up, hit a poor wedge and then three-putted for bogey, ending his streak of 41 consecutive holes at Sherwood at par or better. Bradley made a 6-foot birdie putt for a twoshot swing, and the game was on. Steven Bowditch leads PGA Tour Q-schoolLA QUINTA, Calif. Australias Steven Bowditch shot an 8-under 64 on Sunday on PGA Wests Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course to take a one-stroke lead after the fifth round of the PGA Tour qualifying tournament. Bowditch had a 23-under 337 total in the six-round event. The final top 25 and ties will receive 2013 PGA Tour cards and the next 50 and ties will earn Web.com Tour cards. Kris Blanks was second after a 66, and Derek Ernst (66), Steve LeBrun (67) and Edward Loar (68) followed at 21 under. They also played the Nicklaus course. Lee-Bentham, Jutanugarn top LPGA Tour Q-schoolDAYTONA BEACH Canadas Rebecca Lee-Bentham shot a 5-under 67 on Sunday to tie Thailands Moriya Jutanugarn for the top spot in the LPGA Tour qualifying tournament, leading the 20 players who earned full status. Lee-Bentham and Jutanugarn finished the five-round event at 13-under 347 at LPGA International. Jutanugarn shot a 74 after taking a six-stroke lead into the day. Japans Ayako Uehara was third at 12 under after a 69. Kathleen Ekey followed at 10 under after a 65, and Lisa McCloskey and Japans Chie Arimura were 8 under. McCloskey had a 71, and Arimura shot 70.Kaymer wins by two strokes in rain at Sun CitySUN CITY, South Africa Martin Kaymer of Germany shot a 3-under 69 to earn his first title of 2012, holding on for a two-shot victory Sunday in rainy conditions at the Nedbank Golf Challenge. Kaymer finished at 8-under 280, two ahead of Charl Schwartzel (69) of South Africa. Bill Haas of the United States was third after a 71. Kaymer was in trouble twice toward the end, pulling his tee shoot deep into the rough on the par-5 No. 14. He blasted out and made a brilliant birdie. He bogeyed No. 15 to allow Schwartzel to get within one shot, but recovered through the last three holes to close out his first win since November 20, 2011. Schwartzels bogey on No. 17 helped Kaymer. It was always tight. Charl played a great round of golf, Kaymer said, adding he only felt comfortable once his par putt on 18 dropped in. I was telling (my caddie) I need a win. I need a win in 2012. South African Louis Oosthuizen (74) was fourth. Two-time defending champion Lee Westwoods run at Sun City ended with a 73, seven shots behind the winner. McDowell ends drought by winning World Challenge Short game goes a long way Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend briefly lived apart before he killed her and then committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager, a friend of the woman said Sunday. But Brianne York, 21, said that Belcher and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Kasandra M. Perkins, had gotten back together by Thanksgiving. When she learned Saturday that Belcher had fatally shot Perkins at the couples home, York said, she thought someone must have been mistaken. Afterward, Belcher drove about five miles to Arrowhead Stadium, where he thanked general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel for all theyd done for him. Belcher then fatally shot himself in the practice facilitys parking lot, police said. Belcher and Perkins have a 3-month-old daughter. They just dont seem like theyre that kind of people, said York, who met Perkins while taking prerequisite classes at the Blue River campus of the Metropolitan Community College. The women bonded during their pregnancies. Yorks baby, a boy, was born about three months before Perkins daughter. York recalled that her friend was really happy about being a mom. It doesnt seem that that would be the end of their story, York said. It just seems like if things didnt work out, they would have gone their separate ways. I would never have thought that this would be how it ended. Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp reiterated Sunday that the couple had argued recently but he could provide no additional details. At the couples former home, people could be seen coming and going Sunday. Can you all respect grieving? said a man who answered the door at the couples home. A short time later, at the same time the Chiefs were playing the Carolina Panthers, two men loaded bags into a car, and two women drove away. Attempts to reach various members of Perkins family in Austin, Texas, were unsuccessful. Neighbors in the newly built Kansas City subdivision where the couple had lived since April were stunned by Saturdays violent events. Kristen VanMeter, 31, lives near the couple and said also she had taken community-college courses with Perkins. VanMeter said the couple threw a lot of parties but said she heard nothing unusual the morning of the killing. Friend: Chiefs LB, slain girlfriend seemed fine

SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 Kim Kardashian Associated PressLOS ANGELES The Twilight finale and Skyfall continued to dominate the box office on a typically slow post-Thanksgiving weekend that brought big business for holdover films but a poor start for Brad Pitts new crime story. Sunday studio estimates put The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 out front for the thirdstraight weekend with $17.4 million domestically. That raised the domestic total to $254.6 million for the vampire tale released by Lionsgate banner Summit Entertainment. The movie added $48.4 million overseas for an international haul of $447.8 million and a worldwide sum of $702.4 million, approaching the franchise record of $710 million for last years Breaking Dawn Part 2. Sonys James Bond adventure Skyfall was a fraction behind with $17 million domestically, raising revenue to $246 million after four weekends. Skyfall also brought in $34 million overseas to put the worldwide total at $869 million, the best cash haul ever for a Bond flick. Pitts Killing Them Softly, the weekends top new release, tanked with just $7 million domestically, coming in at No. 7 behind a big batch of holdovers. The Twilight finale and Skyfall were close enough that domestic rankings could flip-flop when final numbers are released Monday. Either way, the two movies have led a brisk start to the holiday season that could lift Hollywood to record domestic revenues for the year. With domestic business totaling $9.9 billion so far in 2012, receipts are running 6 percent ahead of last years and are on track to top the record of $10.6 billion set in 2009, according to Hollywood .com. A Weinstein Co. release, Killing Them Softly averaged just $2,888 in 2,424 theaters, meager results compared to the Twilight finales average of $4,344 in 4,008 cinemas over its third weekend.

The honors are the nations highest award for those who influenced American culture through the arts. President Barack Obama will host the honorees at the White House before they are saluted by fellow performers in a show to be broadcast Dec. 26 on CBS. Meryl Streep introduced the honorees Saturday during a dinner at the U.S. State Department and noted Letterman had surpassed his mentor, Johnny Carson, in sustaining the longest late-night television career for more than 30 years. Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel joined in celebrating his influence on comedians. I knew Johnny, and I loved Johnny. Johnny was beyond reproach, Colbert said in a toast to Letterman. Dave was stupid. Dave was ours. Dave was like us. We wanted to throw things off of buildings. ... We would love to stick our heads out the window of 30 Rock and yell at passers-by, Im not wearing any pants! Colbert marveled at Letterman receiving such an award after he corrupted the minds of a generation. Paul Shaffer, Lettermans longtime band leader, said he knew his boss was uncomfortable hearing such accolades, but that he was also enjoying every second of it. Big names from the rock world dressed in black tie for the occasion to honor their heroes in Led Zeppelin as a string ensemble played Kashmir and other tunes at the State Department. Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl said he never took any music lessons when he was starting out because my teachers were Led Zeppelin. ... They were the most powerful thing in my life. Lenny Kravitz said their music was special and became a lasting part of the culture of rock and roll. Zeppelin front man Robert Plant said he was flattered and overwhelmed in receiving the American culture prize. He said he was glad to see his former band mates, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page, using good table manners. The trio is scheduled to appear Monday on CBS Late Show with David Letterman. Plant told The Associated Press he plans to continue traveling the world and wants to make new music. If anybody wants to write some new songs, Im game to write songs, he said. Hoffman was honored for charting his own path after taking a junior-college class in acting that nobody ever flunks. Streep said it became a pilgrimage with Hoffman waiting tables and typing for the yellow pages. Hed do anything if it meant at night he could find himself on the stage, she said. Glenn Close toasted him for defining the character actor as leading man and as an artist who insisted on the highest standards. President Bill Clinton saluted Guy, the Chicago bluesman who was born into a family of sharecroppers with no electricity or running water in Louisiana. He went on to pioneer the use of distortion and feedback with his electric guitar. Buddy Guys life is a miracle, Clinton said. Just imagine you want to be a guitar player and you get your first strings by tearing off the screen door. ... He came from that to this. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the ballerina Makarova risked everything to have the freedom to dance the way she wanted to dance when she defected from the Soviet Union in 1970. Makarova quickly made her debut with the American Ballet Theatre and later was the first exiled artist to return to the Soviet Union before its fall to dance with the Kirov Ballet. She has also won acclaim for her acting. Clinton also took special note of Letterman, saying he must be wondering what hes doing in a crowd of talented artists and musicians. Dave and I have a history, she said. I have been a guest on his show several times, and if you include references to my pant suits, Im on at least once a week. The crowd of artists and entertainers gave Clinton a standing ovation as she hosted her final salute to the nations artists as secretary of state. Kennedy Center Chairman David Rubenstein gave her a subtle nudge to run for president in 2016, saying theres another room at the State Department to name after a secretary who later becomes president. Led Zeppelin, Buddy Guy, David Letterman honored in D.C.
M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 3, 2012 B7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. The best writer of humorous bridge articles is David Bird from England. His stories about the monks of St. Titus blend interesting deals with entertaining text. In the 11th book in the series, The Abbot, the Witchdoctor and the Disastrous Double (Weidenfeld & Nicolson), we also travel to Africa, where missionaries have been trying to convert natives to the Acol bidding system. In this deal from the book, how can South make six hearts after a trump lead? The Abbot, sitting West, greatly overestimates his own bridge ability and underestimates his opponents. He is also usually stodgy in the bidding, but down in a match to a team he expected to beat easily (as always) and at favorable vulnerability, he opened with a subpar weak two-bid. Then North made a debatable takeout double, and South jumped to the slam. Given that the spade finesse was losing, there seemed to be only 11 tricks: one spade, five hearts, four diamonds and one club. But the declarer saw he could get home if West had precisely 6-2-2-3 distribution. After carefully taking the first trick in his hand (he needed dummys jack as a later entry), he ducked a club, playing a low club from both his hand and the dummy. East won and shifted to the spade jack, but South won with his ace and cashed the heart ace. Next, he played off his four diamond tricks, discarding a club from his hand. Then he took dummys club ace, ruffed a club in his hand, returned to dummy with a trump, cashed the last club (discarding his spade queen), and won the final trick with his remaining trump.

He is in his early 50s and has never married. Neither of us has children. Gary and I travel together, go camping and attend major sporting events. We make each other laugh and have fun in the bedroom. We truly are best friends. My problem is the lack of commitment. Although Im welcome at Garys home as an overnight guest, he refuses to take it to the next level. If I bring up moving in or getting married, I get silence in return. He doesnt give any explanation. He just refuses to discuss it. Gary recently started a new career and is gone for three days every week. There is an excellent chance that he will relocate. We still hook up on weekends, and things are great, but I long for a commitment and cannot seem to get it. When filling out his new life insurance policy, Gary listed his elderly mother as his beneficiary. She is quite well off and doesnt need the money. I would be willing to share everything I own with him, but I guess it isnt reciprocal. Maybe I already know the answer and just need to see it in black and white. Is it time to move on? Life Is Good Dear Life Is Good : Gary enjoys what he has right now. And to a large extent, so do you. Are you willing to give up the friendship and intimacy with Gary in order to pursue a committed relationship? Could you be content with what you have and not expect more? If Gary is ready to move away and hasnt suggested you come along, it means you will not get a commitment from him. Period. Only you can decide whether that means the relationship is a waste of time. Dear Annie: When my husband and I travel, we often spend a couple of days with friends or family. One night during our stay, we usually go out to dinner. There always seems to be a small verbal battle over who is going to pay the bill. My husband always insists on paying. He says we want to thank them for their hospitality. On the other hand, when friends or family come to our house and we go out to dinner, my husband still insists on paying, saying they are our guests. When I was growing up, my father was the same way. Is there a rule about who should pick up the tab: the host or the guest? Tired of Always Footing the Bill Dear Tired: When staying at someones home for a weekend or longer, it is good manners to treat your hosts to a meal to thank them for their hospitality. Your husband should allow your guests to do the same for him. However, if your guests are with you only for a night, it is equally proper for your husband to treat them. But really, since hes so stubborn about it, we suggest you let him do what he wants. Dear Annie: You were wrong to tell N.Y., N.Y. to visit her ailing grandmothers because it is the right thing to do. Having been through it with a grandmother and my own mother, I would have preferred to remember them as the loving people they once were instead of the nasty, angry human wreckage they became. When my grandchildren were younger, I spent lots of time making beautiful memories, and thats what I want them to remember. Ive already given written instructions that should I follow the same course, none of my family is to visit. Let me preserve some dignity by not having my loved ones witness my decline. Realistic Dear Realistic: We dont believe unpleasant memories must crowd out the earlier loving ones. But if these are your wishes, they should be honored.
