C12 VILLAGE TOYOTA SAVE $ 6,000 TOYOTA TUNDRA Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama won reelection Tuesday night despite a fierce challenge from Republican Mitt Romney, prevailing in the face of a weak economy and high unemployment that encumbered his first term and crimped the middleclass dreams of millions. This happened because of you. Thank you Obama tweeted to supporters as he secured four more years in the White House. The president sealed his victory in Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire and Colorado, four of the nine battleground states where the two rivals and their allies spent nearly $1 billion on dueling television commercials. Ultimately, the result of the brawl of an election campaign appeared likely to be the political status quo. Democrats won two more years of control of the Senate, and Republicans were on track to do likewise in the House. Romney was in Massachusetts, his long and Barack Obama Verdict: Barack Obama Smith prevails over Argenziano Incumbent beats back challenger M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS It was a race that saw the Republican Party of Florida pour hundreds of thousands of dollars into state Rep. Jimmie T. Smiths campaign. Smith won Tuesday by a comfortable margin over former state legislator Nancy Argenziano in a race he said was not decided by the party support but by his own reputation in Citrus County. The people who know me in the community saw me out working hard, he said. People just saw: This is Jimmie, who weve always known. Smith also said he and his supporters visited more than 23,000 homes in Citrus and northwest Hernando counties that comprise House District 34. He discounted the dozens of mail pieces sent by the state Republican Party or an independent committee headed by a consultant who helped Smith in his campaign. The mail pieces were highly critical of Argenziano, including one piece that said she violated the law by attempting to switch to the Democratic Party for a run for Congress. Argenziano is suing the Republican Party for that mail piece. Smith said he would have defeated Argenziano without the partys help. He said the mail pieces probably expanded his margin of victory. I think the debates had more impact than anything because word of mouth got out about the two different views, he said. Dawsy defeats Webb, wins fifth term A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterDuring the campaign for the top public safety office in the county, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy would always ask, who the people of Citrus County would trust with their safety during an emergency: Him, or his opponent Winn Webb? On Tuesday, voters resoundingly answered that question by re-electing Dawsy to a fifth term. Dawsy beat Webb 60.09 percent or 43,798 votes to 39.73 percent, or 28,960, according to preliminary results. Webb, who will leave the county commission after four years in office, said voters decided to stick with Dawsy. The people only got what they wanted, he said.Thats why you have an election. They werent ready for a change. Webb said he had no indication on the campaign trail that Dawsy was getting the upper hand. I think things were going my way pretty much the whole way, he said. An old politician told me you can only believe the person who looks you in the eye and says, Theres no way Im going to vote for you. Webb said voters favored the incumbent. Apparently they think Dawsys doing a good job, he said. The issues spoke for themselves. Dawsy said Tuesday night he was humbled and honored by his victory. Its a recognition of these men and women and the work they do, Dawsy said at his victory party at Rock Crusher Canyon. There was a lot of what I call political noise, but we stayed above it and kept doing See DAWSY / Page A5 See SMITH / Page A5 M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS In a year when a school board incumbent lost during the primary and voters were asked to renew a school tax, Sandra Sam Himmel kept talking up the positives. Voters returned Himmel to office as Citrus County superintendent of schools with 53 percent over teacher Sandy Balfour. Himmels victory comes the same day voters rejected a .25-mill tax that the district is now collecting. Because the revenue would be shifted from capital to operational, it read as a tax increase and the referendum was placed at the bottom of the ballot underneath 11 constitutional amendments. Himmel said the ballot placement hurt the school tax, which was defeated with 43 percent of voters supporting the referendum. As for her own victory, however, Himmel said voters said they support the job shes done over eight years in office. Were pleased with the results, she said. Now we get back to work for our citizens. Balfour, a teacher at the Academy of Environmental Sciences in Crystal River, was pleased with her 47 percent effort. Im thrilled to death, she said. Ive never been in politics. Im very thankful for the support I received. Himmel, a graduate of Citrus High School who served 10 years on the school board, repeatedly touted the districts outstanding success on standardized testing. Citrus County has been an A graded school district for seven straight years and declared a highperforming district for six straight years. Himmel said the public understood that and appreciates it. We worked hard and talked about our record, she said. I think people are pleased with the results. Balfour, a member of the College of Central Floridas Board of Trustees, acknowledged the high test scores during her campaign, but said they occur in a poor-performing state. Balfour said the district could do better. She also criticized Himmels hiring practices, saying principal positions are filled without seeking applications from outside the school district. Balfour said Tuesday she isnt thinking of politics beyond Tuesdays election. Im exploring a pizza, she said, and thats about it.

Chief deputy clerk steps into larger role after five years of service A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Robert Holmes handily defeated his opponent Tuesday for Seat 5 on the Crystal River City Council. According to preliminary results, Holmes defeated challenger Keith Shewbart 69 to 31 percent. Holmes had 959 votes compared to Shewbarts 432 votes. I am scared to death, but Im ready to go to work, Holmes said. He said the city has a very good city manager and council already, but will look at challenging the folks in Tallahassee about anything he thinks is not in the best interest of the city. Holmes has served two other times on the City Council and his father was also a council member. He said Tuesday night he believes name recognition helped his effort. Shewbart agreed. Name recognition may have played a role as to why I didnt do too well, Shewbart said. He (Holmes) is a local guy, but I believe in Crystal River. I am going continue being involved in the community, he continued. I am not going anywhere. There are plenty of good things about Crystal River that I would continue to work on. Shewbart, who has previously run for mayor of the city, said it is too early to say if he will run for another political office. But he will continue his passionate involvement with the citys Waterfronts Advisory Board and other civic activities, including his work with the Civil Air Patrol. Shewbart is a pilot with Delta Airlines. Holmes works for Progress Energy and thanked Shewbart for a nice campaign devoid of some of the name-calling he saw in other races. The term for the Crystal River Council seat is for four years. It covers incorporated Crystal River and pays $6,328. I am scared to death, but Im ready to go to work.

Clarification The editorial on Page C2 of Sundays edition, Residents must demand smarter water policies, warrants clarification. According to the Southwest Florida Water Management District, a quote by water district spokeswoman Robin Felix in the editorial and in a preceding news story should have stated, We have looked at the plant life in the Homosassa River and it is correct that they are declining, but we dont know why. Also, the water districts core roles include both water quantity and quality. While the minimum flows and levels (MFLs) issue is a quantity issue, the district does deal with quality issues as well. Associated PressORLANDO Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson won a third term Tuesday as his moderate image and folksy style easily withstood a challenge from Republican Rep. Connie Mack IV, who claimed the incumbent was nothing but a liberal in disguise. Nelson vowed to continue working to break through Washingtons partisan divide. What I will try to continue to do as I have through my entire elected public life is to try reach across the aisle and bring people together and reach consensus so we can govern this country, Nelson said in his victory speech. Mack, the great-grandson of the Hall of Fame baseball manager who was trying to claim the seat his father held before retiring in 2001, said he is sure Nelson will live up to the high standards set for him. But he added he will not stop fighting for the conservative values he campaigned on. I am very proud of the campaign that we ran, he said. We did the right things. We talked about patriotism, we talked about dreams, we talked about freedom, we talked about the future of America. While Florida voters were nearly evenly split on President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney, Nelson was a clear favorite despite a campaign relatively less active. Part of Macks challenge was trying to break through the focus on the presidential race. He struggled for an audience that would listen and wasnt able to successfully make the case Romney needed a Senate to support his agenda. With nearly 7.7 million votes counted, Nelson had more than 55 percent of the vote compared with Macks 42 percent. Independent voter Milly Herrera was one of those who supported Romney and still cast a ballot for Nelson. There are some issues where I support the Democrats and then there are some issues, like small business and the economy, where I would support the Republicans, she said. High turnout was expected in Florida, where more than 4.5 million people about 38 percent of the electorate had already voted before Election Day. Mack, 45, represents southwest Florida in Congress but for now, his political career is on hold. Mack consistently beat the theme Nelson supported Obama with nearly every vote, including the presidents health care overhaul and the $787 billion federal stimulus. Meanwhile, Nelson quietly raised more than $16 million compared with Macks $6 million, and spent some of it trying to tear down Macks reputation through television ads. Democrat defeats Republican Connie Mack Bill Nelson won a third term as a U.S. senator. V ICKISV ICTORIOUS N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS As it neared 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Angela Vick breathed. Standing with her husband, Alan, in the crowded Supervisor of Elections Office waiting for the results of her campaign for clerk of courts, the Republican candidate realized she was about to win by 70 percent of the votes cast. And she wasnt sure how to react. Earlier that evening, she said she had never run for public office before and wasnt sure about election-night protocol. As people began congratulating her, it finally sank in. Now I can breathe, she said. On Jan. 8, Vick, chief deputy clerk for the past five years, steps in to take the position of clerk, which is being vacated by Betty Strifler, who is retiring after 24 years as clerk. Vick has worked in the clerks office for the past 22 years and ran on the platform of her experience and thorough knowledge of the office. Her opponent, Phillip Mulrain, Democrat, was unavailable for comment Tuesday. The clerks office has an amazing reputation for customer service, and my No. 1 goal is to keep that reputation and get it even better, Vick said. Right now, Im ready to turn the corner. Ive been focused on doing my job every day, because the clerks office has to stay running, and it was only a few days ago that I started to feel (anxious) about tonight. She added ever since Strifler announced her intentions to retire, the clerks office has been working on making a smooth transition. Theres been a lot of succession planning, she said. Right now, all this, its a lot to take in.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927. DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle Angela Vick watches as results show her winning easily for the Citrus County Clerk of Court seat vacated by Betty Strifler. E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff WriterAfter months of campaigning, U.S. Rep. Richard Nugent, R-Brooksville, celebrated his win for the District 11 congressional seat against Spring Hill resident David Werder on Tuesday night. Nugent spent Election Day shaking hands with voters, working through the final hours to convince them he was the man to represent them in Congress. While enjoying the victory, Nugent said theres much work ahead. Job No. 1 for me is to make sure that we get it together so that we can get out of the way so that small businesses can actually create jobs that fuel this economy, Nugent said. When we get people back to work they spend money. They buy products and do things. Nugent, a retired Hernando County sheriff, spent his election evening at the home of recently elected Hernando County Supervisor of Elections Shirley Anderson. Before the win was formally announced, the vote count showed Nugent was ahead of Werder by a 2to-1 margin. Voters in District 11 which covers Citrus County and all or parts of Hernando, Lake, Sumter and Marion counties cast 217,893 ballots for Nugent to 119,957 for Werder, his Democratic opponent. In Citrus County, Nugent took 47,642 votes to Werders 23,119, or 67.32 to 32.67 percent respectively. Election night vote totals are unofficial. Nugent thanked voters for their support. I am honored that people are willing to send me back up to Washington, D.C., to do the peoples business, Nugent said. To me it is really a great honor. I love it when we hear from people, Nugent continued. We want to help veterans, people on Social Security, folks with Medicare issues and help them with the federal government. He pointed to his plans to expand his offices into Citrus County, The Villages and Marion County. We want to make it more convenient for people to come and see us, he said. Efforts to reach David Werder for comment were unsuccessful. Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington can be reached at eworthington@chronicleonline. com or 352-563-5660.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE More tuition flexibility linked to stronger accountability measures for Floridas state universities are among the final recommendations approved Tuesday by Gov. Rick Scotts higher education task force. The panel also called for strengthening the Board of Governors, which oversees the 12 universities, by giving it more authority over budgeting and the hiring of the schools presidents. Theres about four or five really strong recommendations in here that can transform the system, said University of North Florida President John Delaney. I think that is what the governor was after. Delaney is among seven members of the Blue Ribbon Task Force on State Higher Education Reform who unanimously approved the recommendations. The panel had decided earlier that it would not advance any proposals that didnt have agreement from all seven. The key proposals include allowing universities to charge different tuition rates according to the type of degree a student is seeking. The idea is to use lower tuition rates at least until the states economy improves and unemployment drops below 7 percent to encourage students to enroll in programs that lead to high-wage, high-skill and high-demand jobs. The panel also recommended that preeminent universities be allowed to charge higher rates. Members agreed that a school can be deemed preeminent regardless of its mission not just if it has a heavy focus on research. Both types of differential tuition could be triggered if state funding is insufficient to achieve goals set according to accountability metrics for the system as well as individual schools. The task force is not recommending that tuition go up, Delaney said. The task force is recommending that the universities be funded at a level necessary to succeed. Period. Floridas tuition rates currently rank among the nations lowest, and the state has cut university funding in recent years, including $300 million this year, but Scott has vigorously opposed tuition increases. Earlier this year the governor vetoed a bill that would have permitted the states top two research schools, the University of Florida and Florida State University, to exceed a current 15 percent cap on annual increases. The panel says its recommendations are intertwined.

Associated PressMIAMI Three Florida Supreme Court justices easily won a retention bid Tuesday despite an unprecedented push by the Republican Party of Florida to oust them after several rulings the party disliked. Justices R. Fred Lewis, Barbara Pariente and Peggy Quince each led about 67 percent to 33 percent with about 80 percent of the precincts reporting. The Republican Partys executive committee had unanimously voted to oppose the three, warning they are liberal and too extreme. It marks the first time a Florida political party has taken a position in a retention race. The very foundation of Floridas independent judicial system was threatened in this election. I am grateful that Florida voters once again demonstrated their faith in our fair and impartial judicial system, Lewis said in a statement Tuesday. The justices supporters, including some prominent Republicans, say the GOP is endangering judicial independence and that the three have done nothing that deserves removal. Floridians care deeply about ensuring that we have a fair and impartial judiciary untainted by partisan politics, Quince said in a statement. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who has been critical of the high court, would have appointed replacements from candidates recommended by a nominating panel, also appointed by the governor. Brian Burgess, a spokesman for the Republican Party of Florida, said in an email they knew it was an uphill battle especially after the justices raised millions of dollars. Several high-profile court decisions by the justices have angered Republicans, including one blocking a constitutional amendment from the 2010 ballot that was aimed at blunting the impact of the federal health care overhaul. Lawmakers reworded the amendment and put it on this years ballot. The GOP also accused the justices of activism after they overturned Republican Gov. Jeb Bushs private school voucher program in 2006 and ordered a new trial for a convicted killer. That ruling was reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court. The justices backers said Republicans were trying to highjack the independence of the court by politicizing the retention elections. They fear a repeat of what happened in Iowa two years ago when a late infusion of out-of-state money helped defeat three justices over a 2009 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in that state. The Florida chapter of the Washington, D.C.-based group Americans for Prosperity, a group formed by the conservative billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, ran ads criticizing a pair of Supreme Court rulings dealing with the states opposition to the national health care overhaul and property rights. It also urged voters to sign a petition asking the justices to stop legislating from the bench. The justices also drew opposition from Restore Justice 2012, which grew out of a similar tea party-related organization that unsuccessfully campaigned against two justices in 2010. our work, he said. Webb and Dawsy were locked in a heated race, often trading barbs about issues ranging from qualifications to budgets. Webb accused Dawsy of presiding over an ever-expanding spending juggernaut and compelling agency personnel to support his campaign or face the hidden threat of retribution. Webb went further to allege Dawsy and some of his senior staff stunted Webbs own rise within the agency because he supported another candidate in Dawsys initial election in 1996. Dawsy countered the accusations as absurd and said Webb was not qualified to be a sergeant in his agency and certainly was not qualified to be sheriff because he lacked formal education. Webb had been with the agency for 17 years until his retirement in 2006. He was elected to the Citrus County Commission in 2008.Webb highlighted his financial acumen during the campaign saying he knows how to balance budgets and would trim all the financial excesses of the Dawsy era. He also promised to use some of those savings to bolster crime-fighting efforts. Dawsy has been in office since January of 1997 and has insisted throughout the campaign he has made the county safer. He positioned himself as a doer and someone people can rely on in case of an emergency. He would often use the refrain you are safer today in Citrus County than you were in 1998.

Smith took the race with 58 percent of the vote in Citrus and the section of Hernando County west of the Suncoast Parkway and north of State Road 50. Argenziano, who ran as an Independent, had a far different view of the outcome. Argenziano, who served Citrus County in the state House and state Senate before an appointment to the Public Service Commission, repeatedly criticized Smith for being in lockstep with Republican leadership. I didnt lose to Jimmie Smith, she said. I lost to what I think is over a million dollars of special interests. They have their obedient tool, because thats what he is. I just cant understand how people can forget so quickly. Argenziano said she will continue with the lawsuit against the Republican Party over the mail piece. She said it cost her votes. I got emails from people who believed it, she said. They did it just in time for the absentee ballots, so that prevailed. Argenziano said she didnt plan to congratulate Smith. I dont congratulate a liar, she said. I cant congratulate somebody who won on special interest money and no substance. I think he should be ashamed at himself for the lies that he told. Smith is entering his second term. He defeated incumbent Ron Schultz, a former Citrus County property appraiser, in 2010 on a platform that promised high visibility in the community. Smith said when Argenziano first joined the race in the spring he didnt know how it would turn out. This representative position is an honor to be in, he said.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Measures that would have offered expansive property tax relief, set new limits on abortion rights and repealed Floridas ban on public funding for churches and other religious organizations were among eight of 11 proposed state constitutional amendments that fell short of the required 60 percent approval Tuesday. Other high-profile proposals that would have capped the growth of state revenue and given the Legislature greater control over Floridas court system also missed the mark. So did another proposal that would have prohibited the state from requiring people to obtain health insurance. It wouldnt affect a similar federal mandate thats part of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul, which has been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, but Amendment 1s Republican supporters said it gave voters a chance to express their opposition to Obamas plan. The proposal, though, was favored by less than 49 percent of voters, with most ballots counted. The only amendments topping 60 percent with 6 percent of the precincts yet to report targeted property tax relief to lowincome seniors, disabled veterans and spouses of military deceased military personnel and first responders. Each was barely above the 60-percent level. One of the most hotly contested measures was Amendment 4, which had 43 percent in favor. It offered property tax reductions for businesses, out-of-state snowbirds and others who own second homes in Florida and first-time home buyers. Amendment 4 was backed by the Florida Association of Realtors and other business interests as a way to boost the states sagging economy. It was opposed by local government officials and liberal-leaning groups that argued it would further cut cashstrapped public services and raise taxes for primary homeowners to make up for benefits going to other taxpayers. The vote was 44 percent for Amendment 8, which would have repealed the public funding ban for religious organizations, including parochial schools. Courts, though, have permitted such spending for programs that are free of proselytizing. Also trailing with a 45 percent favorable vote was Amendment 6, which would have prohibited public funding of abortions something the state doesnt do anyway. The vote for the state revenue limit, Amendment 3, was 42 percent in favor. Amendment 5, which would have let the Senate confirm Supreme Court justices appointed by the governor and make it easier for the Legislature to veto court rules, had only 37 percent in favor. Also well below 60 percent were Amendment 12, which would have made a procedural change in the selection of the student member of the Board of Governors from among student body presidents at Floridas 12 public universities, and Amendment 10, which would have cut taxes that businesses pay on furniture, equipment and other tangible personal property.

grueling bid for the presidency at an unsuccessful end. The two rivals were close in the popular vote. Romney had 45.2 million votes, or 49 percent. Obama had 45 million, also 49 percent, with 65 percent of precincts tallied. But Obamas laser-like focus on battleground states gave him the majority in the electoral vote, where it mattered most. He had 284, or 14 more than needed for victory. Romney had 200. Yet to be settled were battlegrounds in Florida, Virginia and Nevada. The election emerged as a choice between two very different visions of government whether it occupies a major, front-row place in American lives or is in the background as a lessobtrusive facilitator for private enterprise and entrepreneurship. The economy was rated the top issue by 60 percent of voters surveyed as they left their polling places. But more said former President George W. Bush bore responsibility for current circumstances than Obama did after nearly four years in office. About 4 in 10 said the economy is on the mend, but more said it was stagnant or getting worse more than four years after the near-collapse of 2008. The survey was conducted for The Associated Press and a group of television networks. Democrats got off to a quick start in their bid to renew their Senate majority, capturing seats in Indiana and Massachusetts now in Republican hands. In Maine, independent former Gov. Angus King was elected to succeed retiring GOP Sen. Olympia Snowe. He has not yet said which party he will side with, but Republicans attacked him in television advertising during the race, and Democrats rushed to his cause. Polls were still open in much of the country as the two rivals began claiming the spoils of a brawl of an election in a year in which the struggling economy put a crimp in the middle-class dreams of millions. The president was in Chicago as he awaited the voters verdict on his four years in office. He told reporters he had a concession speech as well as victory remarks prepared. He congratulated Romney on a spirited campaign. I know his supporters are just as engaged, just as enthusiastic and working just as hard today as Obamas own, he added. Romney reciprocated, congratulating the man who he had campaigned against for more than a year. Earlier, he raced to Ohio and Pennsylvania for Election Day campaigning and projected confidence as he flew home to Massachusetts. We fought to the very end, and I think thats why well be successful, he said, adding that he had finished writing a speech anticipating victory but nothing if the election went to his rival. But the mood soured among the Republican high command as the votes came in and Obama ground out a lead in critical states. Like Obama, Vice President Joe Biden was in Chicago as he waited to find out if he was in line for a second term. Republican running mate Paul Ryan was with Romney in Boston, although he kept one eye on his re-election campaign for a House seat in Wisconsin, just in case. Voters also chose a new Congress to serve alongside the man who will be inaugurated president in January, Democrats defending their majority in the Senate, and Republicans in the House. The long campaigns cost soared into the billions, much of it spent on negative ads, some harshly so. In a monthslong general election ad war that cost nearly $1 billion, Romney and Republican groups spent more than $550 million and Obama and his allies $381 million, according to organizations that track advertising. Associated PressWASHINGTON Democrats closed in on keeping their majority in the Senate, swiping Republican-held Senate seats in Indiana and Massachusetts on Tuesday and keeping a once vulnerable seat in Missouri. Republican candidates clumsy comments on rape and abortion proved to be the partys undoing in two of the races. The Democratic gains meant the GOP had to run the table in remaining open Senate seats in Wisconsin, North Dakota, Nebraska and New Mexico, but they trailed in three. Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly edged out tea party-backed Indiana state treasurer Richard Mourdock in a race rocked by the Republican candidates awkward remark that pregnancy resulting from rape is something God intended. Mourdock also upset some Indiana voters for his decision to sue to stop the federal auto bailout of Chrysler, which means jobs building transmissions to thousands in Kokomo. And he alienated some in his own party with his divisive win over six-term Sen. Richard Lugar in the May GOP primary. Lugar refused to campaign for him. In Massachusetts, Democrat Elizabeth Warren knocked out Republican Sen. Scott Brown, who had stunned the political world in January 2010 when he won the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedys seat. The strong Democratic tilt in the state and President Barack Obamas easy win over former Gov. Mitt Romney in Massachusetts helped the consumer advocate in her bid. The race was one of the most expensive in the country $68 million even though both candidates agreed to bar outside spending. In Missouri, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill was considered the most vulnerable incumbent, but Republican Rep. Todd Akin severely damaged his candidacy in August when he said womens bodies have ways of avoiding pregnancy in instances of legitimate rape. GOP leaders, including Romney, called on him to abandon the race. Akin stayed in. In Virginia, Democrat Tim Kaine edged out Republican George Allen in a battle of former governors. The contest attracted millions of dollars in outside spending. Democrats hold a 53-47 edge in the Senate, including the two independents who caucus with them. Republicans needed a net of four seats to grab the majority. The caustic campaign for control of the Senate in a divided Congress was marked by endless negative ads and more than $1 billion in spending by outside groups on races from Virginia to Montana, Florida to New Mexico. The outcome in Ohio and Virginia was closely linked to the presidential race. Republicans and Democrats in Massachusetts, North Dakota and Montana hoped that energetic campaigns and personality would lead to ticket-splitting by voters. In Maine, independent Angus King prevailed over Republican Charlie Summers and Democrat Cynthia Dill in the race to replace Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe.

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterFaced with declining reservesand increasing deficits, commissioners Tuesday were presented with several new ways to raise revenues for maintainingservices, facilities and programs. We are still operatingat a deficit, County Administrator Brad Thorpe said to the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Right now, as this report states, we are about $6.5 million short. We engaged this firm to give you a snapshot of what budget diversification could mean. County Attorney Richard Wesch introduced Heather Encinosa, an attorney with the firm of Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson, which Wesch said was the state expert in local government finance. Encinosa said in spite of the countys efforts to cut spending, its budget projections still show multimillion-dollar shortfalls. The purpose of the study was notjustto identify potential legal sources of additional revenue, Encinosa said, but also to provide you with options for diversifying your existing revenue system so that you dont have all your eggs in the ad valorem basket. In addition to current strains on the county budget, Encinosa said otherpotential pressures could come fromDuke Energys decisions about repairs to the Crystal River power plantand the voting outcomefor five of the 11 constitutional amendments on Tuesdays ballot. Federal and state mandates also tugged at the budget. Options available include creating a Municipal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU) to levy millage on existing services, such as fire protection, law enforcement, beach erosion control, recreation service and facilities. Utility franchises could be applied to electricity, natural gas, water and wastewater and solid waste haulers, but not to telecommunications as the communications tax already amounts to a franchise fee. Also, Municipal Service Benefits Units could be used for funding certain services and constructing and maintaining capital facilities. Another source would be a local-option sales tax:Of the 67 Florida counties, 51 have levied some form of localoption sales tax. A 1-percent sales tax would generate about $11.285 million annually for Citrus County. In addition, the county could consider surtaxes, a utility availability feeand implementing more user fees. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said the county could not continue to dip into reserve funds. Considering the use of potential alternative sources was not a plan to expand government, she said. This is not to add unnecessary luxuries, Bays said. This is a way to continue to provide the services our community needs and to some extent wants without doing so on the backs of property owners. Commissioners unanimously agreed to set a public hearing at 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 11 to take public comments about implementing these sources of revenue. Although Commissioner Winn Webb will serve on the board for one more meeting, commissioners and county staff presented him a plaque at Tuesdays meeting because Thorpe will not be present at Webbs final meeting. Webb said he enjoyed serving. I cant speak for the other commissioners, but Im sure they enjoy a lot of the calls they get, too, he said. Somebody is not getting satisfaction someplace. They are not calling me because they are having a good day. We have the opportunity to turn it around for them. As long as we keep that in our mind that thats what we are here for, everybodys going to be happier.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer @chronicleonline.com or 352-5642916.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Less than two weeks before the formal start of the winter manatee season, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) officials met with waterborne tour operators to offer the latest about Kings Bay. Ivan Vicente, visitor services specialist at Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge Complex, and the Refuge Manager Michael Lusk implored operators to aid them in being better stewards of the areas sea cow residents. He talked about the role operators can play in ensuring the optimal experience for visitors and manatees. He said the key thing is making sure visitors understand initiating contact with manatees is not what USFWS desires. Passive observation, Vicente said, is what is good for the welfare of the manatees. Sea cows are sometimes known to play with visitors, inviting contact. But it should be left to the manatees to be the initiator, Vicente said. He also talked about the importance of self-regulation by operators, especially during the crowded periods around Three Sisters Springs. Vicente also touched on permitting fees, new captains, tagged manatees in the refuge for rehabilitation, and the expected crush of new visitors after Three Sisters Springs manatees are featured in a television program expected to air next year. Last year, tour operators reported more than 93,000 visitors to Kings Bay. Lusk updated operators about the new rules pertaining to Three Sisters Springs, including the one dealing with commercial flash photography. Flash photography is restricted to one hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset. Other prohibitions include: No weapons. No alcoholic beverages. No disposable containers. No motorized vessels or propulsion devices. Pets must remain in vessel. No fishing, gigging or spearing. Commercial photography requires a USFWS special-use permit. No anchoring of vessels. No exiting or entering vessels. The issue ofnon-commercial personal flash has yet to be resolved by the city of Crystal River, which co-owns Three Sisters Springs with Southwest Florida Water Management District. Changes are coming, Lusk told the operators, and you are keys to setting the tone of what happens in this bay. Laura Ruettiman, owner of Sea Education Adventures, said after 13 years of operating in the area, she has found that everybody is trying to (do) the right thing, and all businesses are on the same page with USFWS. Ruettiman, however, suggested selling the entire bay as a destination to view and interact with manatees to reduce overcrowding at Three Sisters Springs. Besides Three Sisters Springs, the main spring or open bay and Hunter Springs are also great locations from which to view manatees, she said. Lusk said that was an excellent idea and he would endeavor to enter it in USFWS literature in the future, but people love Three Sisters Springs because of its crystal clear waters and its prettier.Chronicle reporter A.B.

Suncoast Blvd. Crystal River, FL 34429 Associated PressNEW YORK Superstorm Sandy knocked off nearly $4 billion of retail sales last week in the hard-hit Mid-Atlantic and Northeast region, nearly 20 percent of the usual total, according to figures released Tuesday by a retail data service. MasterCard Advisors SpendingPulse said Tuesday the region, which accounts for 24 percent of retail sales nationwide, typically generates $18.7 billion in sales for the week ended Saturday. But revenue came in at $15 billion. The figures exclude auto sales. This was a significant negative event for the region, said Michael McNamara, vice president of research and analysis for SpendingPulse, which monitors all types of spending, including cash. That dragged down the nationwide sales total for the week ended Saturday. Nationwide, retailers typically generate $78 billion in sales for that particular week, but McNamara estimates the total ended up being about $74 billion. New York, New Jersey and Connecticut were among the states that operated below normal retail capacity. For example, New York operated about 79 percent of retail capacity. Typically, New York accounts for anywhere from 7.5 percent to 8 percent of U.S. sales, but last week the state accounted for about 6.3 percent. Superstorm Sandy slammed into the Northeast on Oct. 29, disrupting business activity up and down the Eastern Seaboard and causing stores to close due to power outages, flooding and other problems. Meanwhile, many shoppers stayed close to home because of the weather and gas shortages.

The store is clearing out its inventory damaged by superstorm Sandy. P AT F AHERTY Staff WriterLooking for a part-time holiday job? Walk in and ask. The holiday shopping season means more job opportunities for part-time workers. Nationally and statewide, the outlook for seasonal retail employment is better than last year. But the picture could be similar at the county level, where jobhunters may find shoe leather more useful than the Internet. The National Retail Federation has forecast between 585,000 and 625,000 seasonal workers will be hired this holiday season, which is comparable to the 607,500 seasonal employees last year. Nationally, Walmart was expecting to hire an estimated 50,000 seasonal workers, up 5,000 from 2011. Toys R Us and Kohls also anticipated increased holiday hiring. Locally, the Walmart in Inverness is hiring. Job-seekers are advised to come in and fill out an application. The personnel director said some of the jobs could become permanent as workers will be needed at the new store in Lecanto. Nationally, the numbers are up, said Laura Byrnes, communications manager for CLM Workforce Connection. Definitely the big chains are hiring and so are small mom-and-pop stores. Byrnes said typically retailers do not go to the trouble posting seasonal jobs. Word of mouth and signs in windows are used instead. You have to walk in and ask, she said. That is more effective than visiting the online job services. Kmart is an exception. Job information and applications for local Kmart stores are available at searsholdings.com. Byrnes said Workforce has 121 seasonal positions posted in the region (Citrus, Levy and Marion counties) with 22 in Citrus County. She added consumer confidence is up and data suggests the number of temporary jobs turning permanent will reach pre-recession levels. Tis the holiday season for part-time employees

Were on pins and needles, said Phil Orlando, chief equity strategist at Federated Investors, a money management firm. Orlando, who backs Republican Mitt Romney, said he thought the stock markets gains reflected optimism Romney could win. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 133.24 points to close at 13,245.68. Companies that investors believe would benefit under a potential Romney administration surged ahead. They included United Technologies and Boeing, which do substantial business with the Defense Department. Four financial companies Travelers, American Express, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America ranked among the 10 biggest gainers in the 30-stock Dow average. Other investors said they simply want the election behind them. That will allow Wall Street and Congress to shift their attention to the socalled fiscal cliff, a package of tax increases and government spending cuts scheduled to take effect Jan. 1. In other trading Tuesday, the Standard & Poors 500 index rose 11.13 points to 1,428.39, while the Nasdaq composite index gained 12.27 points to 3,011.93. The price of crude oil jumped $3 to $88.71 in New York as reports suggested superstorm Sandy caused a drop in gasoline supplies. That also helped lift stocks in petroleum refiners. Tesoro Corp and Phillips 66 each rose 5 percent. In the market for government bonds, the yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note rose to 1.75 percent. Thats up from 1.68 percent late Monday. Even with the surge Tuesday, it remained a quieter Election Day for the stock market than last time. During the financial meltdown four years ago, big swings in the market became commonplace. On Nov. 4, 2008, the Dow shot up 305 points, easily the biggest Election Day rally of all time. Investors expected a victory for Barack Obama. On Election Day 2004, the prospect of a close election led to a late sell-off, and the Dow finished down 18 points, snapping a five-day winning streak. John Kerry didnt concede to George W. Bush until the following day.

Page A14 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2012 Work like the rest of usIn the Friday, Oct. 19 Chronicle a letter was published in which a woman states that as a human being, she feels she is entitled to certain things. That is entitled as in To furnish with a right or claim to something. She claims the right to health care, food, and housing in the first sentence of her letter. She doesnt make it clear who she expects to furnish her with these entitlements, but Im left with the impression its you and me. She goes on to state the Constitution guarantees the pursuit of happiness. She doesnt seem to know it but she claims those rights under the promote the general welfare statement found in the preamble of the Constitution of the United States. However I would argue that providing her health care, food, and shelter in no way promotes the general welfare of the United States, only her specific welfare at my expense. I say let her work for those things like the rest of us do. She has no right to them at my expense just because she exists. If she is afflicted, then yes, we have a moral obligation to assist her, and we will. As everyone knows, the phrase the pursuit of happiness comes from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. She would be shocked to learn that if she would do the research it deserves that it refers to property rights. It means that my wealth, my property, and the fruits of my labor are not to be seized and redistributed to her. Our God given rights are life, liberty, and the right of property. She says Most people in this country who have pulled themselves up by their bootstraps have done so through government programs that gave them a boost. We have examples of that in the land grant university system, and the GI bill after World War II. Hundreds of thousands took advantage of those programs. Thats what promote the general welfare looks like, not us providing her health care, food and housing. Harley Lawrence Homosassa Thanks, strangers My sister-in-law and I want to thank the nice couple who paid for our lunch on Friday, Oct. 26, at Riverside Resort. We were totally surprised when we started to pay the tab and our waitress Nikki said that it had been taken care of already by the nice couple. That was the greatest thing that has happen and it shows there are really nice people in this country. They said good bye and left on their boat Skipper we believe was the name of the boat and she waved as they were pulling away. We thank you both very much and God Bless you always. Pat Thomas Homosassa Barb Thomas Crystal River T he Florida Democratic Party got what it needed late last week, by not getting what it wanted. State chairman Rod Smith asked Republican Gov. Rick Scott to extend the eight-day early voting period through Sunday because voters were having to wait in extremely long lines at polling places. A political pro, Smith knew that was like the Detroit Tigers asking the San Francisco Giants to make the World Series best out of nine, rather than seven games. Why would Scott want to extend a voting method that favors Democrats? He and the Republicans who run the Legislature specifically excluded the Sunday before Election Day when they overhauled the election code last year. Acceding to Smiths request would have given back what the Democrats lost in the Legislature. Scott knew he would be accused of suppressing the vote by not changing the rules in the bottom of the eighth inning, just because the other team felt it was needed. You dont have to be overly cynical to suspect that Democrats made their request just so they could remind us how sinister Republicans are, ever eager to make it hard for minority, elderly and college-aged Floridians to vote. And its true that Republicans have lacked subtlety in rigging the rules, as the Democrats did for about 126 years and will again, when they run the Florida Capitol some day. Under the guise of combatting vote fraud, which isnt really that big a problem, Scott ran a hamfisted purge of voting rolls, supposedly rooting out felons and non-citizens. Eliminating Sunday voting deprived black churches of their Souls to the Polls after-church tradition, which always favors the Democrats. But Florida has 11.9 million registered voters, of whom 4,421,453 voted by mailed ballot what we used to call absentee or in person during early voting. Thats only about 91,000 fewer total ballots than were collected before election day in 2008, when there were 13 days of early voting. It should be noted that both presidential election years had 96 hours of early voting. They were just crammed into eight days this year. Aside from their hunch that this sounds like the sort of thing the GOP would do, the Democrats claim of voter suppression relates to trends in early and mailed balloting. The Democrats always do better at early voting, while Republicans romp in mailed ballots. It was no different this year, as 1,108,882 Democrats and 861,952 Republicans had voted in person at early polling places, through the weekend. But so did 439,901 other voters, mainly the No Party Affiliates. So, by refusing to extend early voting into Sunday, Scott suppressed the votes of millions of independents and minor-party members, as well as those of maybe 2.5 million Republicans who hadnt voted yet. Assuming most of those folks would have gone for Romney, if they voted at all, Scott was excluding guys on his team. Ex-Gov. Charlie Crist, who extended early voting hours in 2008, denounced Scotts refusal to do so this time. Crist, nominally an independent, has endorsed President Obama for re-election. Never mind that weve known the new voting rules for 17 months, since Scott signed the new law. Never mind that voters have had more than a month to get mailed ballots, or that they still could go to supervisors offices on election eve and cast live absentee ballots. Never mind that clueless voters contributed to the long lines because they knew so little about the issues on the exceptionally large ballot. Never mind that 37 percent of us managed, somehow, to fight our way through all this suppression and get votes in to the elections supervisors offices by Sunday, Nov. 4 Scott stood by the law, as he and Republican legislators wrote it. Smith played to Democrats not-wholly-groundless belief that the GOP is always up to something. Imagine that politicians doing political things in an election year.

The 30-year city employee has led the revitalization of the county seats downtown area and has helped community leaders create a vision of where the city should be going. His efforts have attracted many new businesses to the community, and his support for community events has made Inverness an entertainment destination. He has an obvious passion for the job. The city manager is officially set to retire in September 2013 as the result of his participation in the DROP program. DROP is the Florida Deferred Retirement Option Program, which permits public employees who have reached their maximum pension level to retire but to still work and earn a salary. While working through this retirement phase, the earned retirement pay is deposited in a trust account paid out to the employee at the time they stop working. There is a time requirement that stipulates that once a public employee enrolls in the DROP they must stop working after five years. September 2013 is the fiveyear anniversary date from the time DiGiovanni signed up for the program. City leaders recently agreed to hire a staff leasing company out of St. Augustine that might give Inverness a way around the planned retirement of DiGiovanni. If all the stars align, the city manager could officially retire and then be hired back by the council as a contract employee. City Councilman Cabot McBride voiced his support for the contract concept because it would give DiGiovanni time to finish projects on the drawing board and build a team of leaders to eventually take over at City Hall. DiGiovannis three key assistants at City Hall are all in his age group and are also participating in the DROP program. They are each scheduled to retire in the three years following the city manager. The city council needs to go into the leased staffing proposal with eyes wide open. DROP was originally created because qualified employees were hard to find and government did not want to lose its best and brightest. The economic crash of 2008 changed the employment scenario throughout the nation. There is no question DiGiovanni is a uniquely qualified leader. He has proven what he is capable of doing. City leaders should have an open conversation about the proposal to lease retired employees and examine the full costs and benefits of the plan. State leaders should also examine the purpose behind the DROP program and make sure the reasons behind the original implementation of the plan are still relevant. The nations employment situation has changed dramatically over the last decade. The DROP program does not appear to be in alignment with the new reality of high unemployment.

They go to a lot of rural areas and they have a lot of rural stops to pick people up. But as far as where they take you, they do get you to a lot of places. But I really wish they would incorporate more necessity places like the health department, the WIC office and maybe decide that they would like to go down (U.S.) 41 one day because it is in Citrus County and the DCF office is off that road, the bowling alleys off that road. I just think a lot of people would use it. The Orange Line is an awesome alternative to people with no transportation or people who just cant afford to pay $4 a gallon in gas.Yes to no-killI wholeheartedly agree with the article, No-kill shelter, in your Sound Off for Fridays (Oct. 26) paper. I continually get abandoned kittens dropped on my property and yearly I am either raising them or struggling to find homes for stray kittens. People need to take responsibility and northern visitors need to not drop their pets in our county. They need to take their pets with them. Also, I agree with the no-kill shelter. People need to volunteer. They need to be involved. They need to be knowledgeable. And I wish breeders would find something else to do.

Young under the heading Foreign Policy some two weeks ago, I wish to highlight the error in his letter the Germans were responsible for the sinking of the Titanic. It was, in fact, an iceberg that ripped a gash in the hull causing it to tragically sink. Perhaps it is the Cunard S.S. Lusitania he is making reference to which was torpedoed by a German submarine off the coast of Ireland in May 1915. Following a hit by one torpedo, a huge explosion was heard and the ship sank in minutes with the sad loss of many American souls. It was reported by the Germans the ship was carrying munitions to aid the British war machine and was therefore fair game. It was denied by the powers that be at the time. Years later, it was rumored by individuals employed at a large British arsenal that they had seen the cargo load listing and nondescript items were included that could only mean they were secret. Many years later, an exploration dive was made to try and explain the quick sinking and the suggestion it was carrying munitions. The outcome was there appeared to be a huge hole in the hulk larger than could be expected from one torpedo and a slight appearance of an internal explosion. The eventual conclusion was the non-descript cargo had to be munitions. Whilst it was considered a cowardly act by the Germans on a passenger ship loaded with American citizens, the USA still traded with the Germans until they entered the war in Europe; a war that was considered at the time as a war to end all wars. Fred Pescodd Homosassa Story selection I have noticed over the past several years since Ive lived in Citrus County, certain individuals seem to get special consideration for coverage in your newspaper. A good example is in todays paper (Oct 24) in which the lead headline is: Argenziano blasts attack mailings. One might suppose, even in a small paper that the lead might be, for example, .0 earthquake rocks downtown Inverness, or such. Not some lame, worked-to-death, political story that most of the folks around here already know more than enough about. More importantly, I think, is the fact that I, and most people I know, receive political attack ads in their mail daily. Do these political hopefuls get a chance for a headline? Im doubtful. Put the Down Syndrome twins on the first page and Argenziano on page 3. James W. Willis Sugarmill Woods Wake upMom brought me to this God blessed land from Puerto Rico in 1934. I have lived here all my life. Never in my life have I seen what I have seen in the past several years. I have seen folks holding signs, asking for help because they have lost their jobs, their homes, etc., etc. This is not a political statement, it goes far beyond that. I have seen several couples, whose appearance indicates they are not vagabonds, holding signs asking for handouts. In all my life and I am now one year shy of 80 years old, this is a first. In II Chronicles 7 verse 14 it says, If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. People need to wake up and smell the coffee. Rev. Braulio Esquilin Beverly Hills Bailouts burdenWhile campaigning in 2008, Barack Obama seemed like a breath of fresh air a good-looking young candidate full of great ideas. Promised to close Gitmo in a year; cut the deficit in half, slash the unemployment rate; instead he piddled away his first two years. With a Democratic House and Senate, he could have accomplished many of his goals; instead he frittered the time away with the Affordable Care Act. This was something a large majority of Americans did not want, yet he and the Congressional leaders rammed it through. He bailed out General Motors, too. Something that may come back to haunt him soon, since GM has expanded in China and has joined forces with SAIC (Shanghai Automotive & Industry Corp a Chinese state-owned company) and FAW (another state-owned company). GM now produces 70 percent of its vehicles outside the USA mostly in China. GM has 11 manufacturing plants and four power-train plants in China. Obama not only did an end run around the U.S. taxpayers, he did so around the automotive unions, too. So that GM product sitting at your local dealer may have well been made in China. Nothing wrong with being a multinational corporation, but the U.S. taxpayers need to know where their jobs and money went. D.W.

Bales faces hurdle in his defense JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. The medic saw Staff Sgt. Robert Bales covered in blood and knew from the pattern of the staining it wasnt his own. He asked where it came from and where hed been. Bales shrugged, the medic, Sgt. 1st Class James Stillwell, testified Tuesday. If I tell you, you guys will have to testify against me, Stillwell quoted him as saying. The statement was one of many attributed to Bales that suggest he knew what he was doing the night he surrendered after a two-village killing spree in southern Afghanistan, prosecutors say. The remarks, offered by fellow soldiers testifying for the government Tuesday, could pose a high hurdle for defense lawyers who have indicated Bales mental health will be a big part of their case.

Balance Russian defense chief firedMOSCOW Vladimir Putin fired his powerful defense chief over a corruption scandal Tuesday, but a heady mix of sex, power struggles and military vendettas dominated talk in Russia about what was really behind the downfall of the man who has overseen the nations most radical defense reform in decades. The dismissal of Anatoly Serdyukov was a surprise because the burly politician was widely regarded as having the presidents blessing for a military modernization that has won the enmity of generals and arms makers with connections to members of Putins inner circle. Adding intrigue was the fact that Serdyukov is married to the daughter of one of Putins close allies, a former prime minister who wields enormous influence as chairman of state-run natural gas giant Gazprom. Media reports suggest that Serdyukovs alleged philandering angered Viktor Zubkov and may have been a factor in the sacking.

Associated PressWASHINGTON A measure of U.S. home prices jumped 5 percent in September compared with a year ago, the largest yearover-year increase since July 2006. The gain reported by CoreLogic offered more evidence of a sustainable housing recovery. The real estate data provider also said Tuesday prices declined 0.3 percent in September from August, the first drop after six straight increases. The monthly figures are not seasonally adjusted. CoreLogic said the monthly decline reflects the end of the summer home-buying season and not a softening in the housing recovery. Steady price increases should give the housing market more momentum when home sales pick up in the spring. Rising prices encourage more homeowners to sell their homes and entice would-be buyers to purchase homes before prices rise further. Other measures have also shown healthy gains in home prices over the past year. The Standard & Poors/Case Shiller 20-city index rose 2 percent in August compared with a year ago, a faster pace than the previous month. The price gains in the past year reported by CoreLogic were widespread. Prices have risen in all but seven states. And they declined in 18 out of 100 large cities that are tracked by the index. Some of the biggest increases were in states that suffered the worst from the housing bust. Home prices in Arizona jumped 18.7 percent in the past year, the most of any state. Home prices in Idaho rose 13.1 percent, the second largest. Nevadas home values rose 11 percent. Home prices jumped 22.1 percent in Phoenix, the metro area with the biggest gain.

Associated PressNEW YORK Richard Chan prowled around his cold, dark Staten Island home with knives and a sword to protect it from thieves, standing his ground as another East Coast storm threatened and police went through neighborhoods with loudspeakers warning people to get out. I still have some valuables. I just cant leave it, he said Tuesday. I just dont want to lose my stuff to some dirtbag. While city officials strongly encouraged storm-ravaged communities to seek higher ground before Wednesdays noreaster, Chan was among a group who adamantly refused to leave, choosing to stick close to the belongings they have left. Since the superstorm made landfall more than a week ago, killing 40 people in the city, more than 100 in 10 states and leaving millions without power, police said overall crime has actually gone down, not up. There are few reports of looting stormdamaged homes. But Alex Ocasio wasnt convinced. The nursing home worker planned to ride out the latest storm in his first-floor Rockaway apartment even after seeing cars float by his front door during Sandy. As the water receded, men dressed in dark clothes broke down the door and were surprised to find him and other residents inside. They tried to say they were rescue workers, then took off, he said. He put up a handmade sign Have gun. Will shoot U outside his apartment and started using a bed frame to barricade the door. Staying or leaving? Fear of looting grips New York City as new storm threatens Associated PressBEIRUT The U.N.-Arab League envoy for Syria warned Tuesday the country could become another Somalia where al-Qaida-linked militants and warlords battled for decades after the ouster of a dictator if the civil war is not ended soon. Battles between regime forces and Syrian rebels left more than 140 people dead across Syria on Tuesday, while the brother of Syrias parliament speaker was gunned down in Damascus the latest victim of a wave of assassinations targeting high-ranking supporters of President Bashar Assads regime. The violence aroused new concern about the faltering diplomatic efforts to try to end the conflict, with the U.N. political chief warning Syria crisis risks exploding outward into Lebanon, Turkey and Israel. Britains prime minister offered the latest long shot that Assad could be allowed safe passage out of the country if that would guarantee an end to the fighting. But there has been no sign the embattled Syrian leader is willing to step down as part of a peaceful transition to save the country. Assad has vowed to militarily crush the nearly 20-month-old rebellion against his rule, and aides say a new president will only be chosen in elections scheduled for 2014. U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, who, like his predecessor Kofi Annan has been unable to put an end to the conflict, warned the civil war could spiral into new levels of chaos. Envoy warns Syria about civil war Associated PressNEW YORK Weather experts had good news for beleaguered northeast coastal residents Tuesday: A new storm that threatened to complicate Hurricane Sandy cleanup efforts Wednesday looks like it will be weaker than expected. As the storm moves up the Atlantic coast from Florida, it now is expected to veer farther offshore than earlier projections had indicated. Jeff Masters of the private weather service Weather Underground said that means less wind and rainfall. Even so, he said winds could still gust to 50 mph in New York and New Jersey Wednesday afternoon and evening. And Lauren Nash, a meteorologist from the National Weather Service, said wind gusts might blow down tree limbs weakened from Sandy and cause more power outages. On Wednesday night, gusts may occasionally reach 60 mph in coastal Connecticut and Long Island, she said. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie warned Tuesday high winds may mean some residents who regained power will lose it again, and the wind could also slow efforts to restore power. There is nothing we can do to stop the storms, he said. Storm surges along the coasts of New Jersey and New York are expected to reach perhaps 3 feet, only half to a third of what Hurricane Sandy caused last week, Masters said. While that should produce only minor flooding, he said it will still cause some erosion problems along the New Jersey coast and the shores of Long Island, where Sandy destroyed some protective dunes. Alex Ocasio, 37, stands next to the sign he posted on the door of his first-floor apartment Tuesday on Rockaway Beach Boulevard in the Queens borough of New York. Ocasio plans to ride out the noreaster at his first-floor apartment even after Sandy flooded his street with neck-high water and someone tried to break in afterward.

From wire reports Floridas Ball values each moment after scare Gators linebacker back from serious brain ailment Associated PressGAINESVILLE It started as the worst headache ever. And before Florida linebacker Neiron Ball knew the diagnosis, the pain had gotten so severe that he couldnt look down and was begging for medication. I cant really explain it, Ball said. The closest thing I can think is somebody just smushing my brain. Doctors determined that blood vessels in his brain were tangled and ruptured, causing bleeding that had to be stopped by radiation surgery. Ball still remembers his prevailing thought as he waited in the hospital. Forget football. Im thinking about living, he said. Now, more than 20 months later, Ball is back on the field and playing a key role for the seventhranked Gators (8-1). He has nine tackles, two fumble recoveries and an interception numbers that mean little compared to all hes been through. I just want to go hard every moment in life because you never know when that moment can be taken away, Ball said. I value each moment. Ball, a third-year sophomore from Jackson, Ga., was one of the teams top special teams player in 2010. His tackling skills were evident and his upside was seemingly limitless. The following February, though, he started feeling pressure in his neck and then a dull ache in his head while working out. He went to trainers and ended up in the hospital. He was diagnosed with arteriovenous maliformation a serious condition that needed immediate attention. He called his sister and her husband, who rushed to Gainesville. Balls parents had both died before he was 10, his father a victim of cancer and his mother dying from a heart attack. His grandmother had raised him about 40 miles south of Atlanta, but she was too frail to make the trip. His sister took him home to rest for surgery, but the pain brought him back to the emergency room. Finally, doctors were ready for a non-invasive radiosurgery. They clamped his head into a brace with four screws and went to work. The procedure worked, but Balls recovery took time. He spent 10 days in the hospital, lost 30 pounds, felt weak and off-balance. And that was just the beginning. The scariest moment was when it was happening, the pain that I felt, he said. The happiest moment is when they said I was going to live. Before that, I was lost. I didnt know what was going on. I had no idea what was going on. Forget football. Im thinking about living. Neiron Ball Florida linebacker on dealing with tangled blood vessels in his brain.

I felt that we did not capitalize on our opportunities enough, but our defense pulled us through in this game, Hamilton said. We did have trouble finishing, but we did pull through with the one goal that matters. The Panthers played a strong defensive game with seven saves, but were held back by a lack of execution as they totaled 10 shots that couldnt find the back of the net. We had a lot of opportunities and shots for goals, but the important thing was we kept up the intensity, Lecanto coach Roselle Lattin said. We did maintain possession for the majority of the game, and when things got a little hairy, we maintained our composure which shows a lot about our team. With the victory, the Panthers go 2-0 in District 4A-4 play and 2-1 overall. The Panthers next game will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at home against Vanguard.

A few hundred yards away, another player cast his line into a pond filled with bass next to the 15th tee on the Magnolia Course. Disney is a vacation for some, a grind for so many others. Its easy to see who falls into which category. This is the final PGA Tour event of the year, and the stakes have never been higher. The top 125 on the money list keep full tour cards, meaning they can play whenever and wherever they want next year except for the majors, World Golf Championships and a few other invitational events that have smaller fields. That much hasnt changed. What makes a tour card so valuable now is that 2013 is a transition year on the PGA Tour, which translates into a shorter season with fewer opportunities. The regular season will last only about seven months leading into the FedEx Cup playoffs. After that, a new season (2013-14) will start in October. For the last six years, players who either didnt get into a lot of tournaments or got off to a slow start could always count on the Fall Series four tournaments at the back end of the season to make up ground and get into the top 125. But that opportunity is going away. The Fall Series events, along with two tournaments in Asia, will be the start of the new wraparound season. Players who finish out of the top 125 can still play, as long as there was room for them at tournaments. They had to get in line behind the fully exempt players, along with 50 others who earned cards through Q-school and the Web.com Tour. But with more players expected to sign up for more tournaments in the shorter season, playing opportunities for the others could be limited. Thats putting it nicely. Those guys are in deep, deep trouble, William McGirt said after a few attempts trying to find the right words for a family newspaper. McGirt was in that position last year, needing a big finish at Disney to keep his card. He didnt come particularly close, wound up at No. 141 and earned his card at Q-school. Knowing that status out of Q-school would be lower this year, imagine his relief when McGirt was runner-up at the Canadian Open to secure his card. He is at No. 70 with just over $1.2 million. The only roller coaster he will be on this week can be found across the street at the Magic Kingdom. Compared with last year, this is as relaxed as you can be, McGirt said Tuesday. Ive talked to a couple of guys about that situation. I told them the last thing you can do is Associated Press William McGirt wound up playing every tournament for which he was eligible from June to early November, 14 events in 17 weeks. Thanks to his runner-up finish at the Canadian Open, he is No. 70 on the money list. Overseeding 101 Special to the Chronicle While this golf hole doesnt appear to have seen Winter yet, once the colder weather creeps in, the course will need to be overseeded. Golfers will also have to deal with delayed tee times due to frost. F all signals a flurry of activity at local golf courses. Year-round residents who dont enjoy the summer heat begin to play more often, and their seasonal friends start to arrive from the chilly north. The Mens and Ladies Golf Associations schedule ramps up, as well as club social activities. It also signals the time of the year when the golf course superintendents overseed the golf course in preparation for cooler weather. Why do we overseed? Warm weather grasses such as Bermuda grass love hot weather and thrive in the warmth of summer. When the temperature drops below 50 degrees, Bermuda grass will go dormant and turn tan in color. Cool weather perennial rye grass seed is planted in the fall to give color to the golf course throughout the cooler months. Many agronomists argue the ideal playing surface for tees and fairways is dormant Bermuda. If you ask a local golfer, he or she may disagree. Dormant tan turf can be a big turn off and this is the reason most facilities overseed each year. Area courses are the busiest from January to April and rates to play golf are the highest during these months. Golf facilities cannot afford to alienate anyone during this busy time as they make approximately 70 percent of their annual revenue during these months. 7 Rivers Golf & Country Club has overseeded in preparation for winter play. Enjoy the green grass this winter! In just a few weeks, we will likely experience our first frost delay of the season. Have you ever shown up for your noon tee time on a beautiful warm winter afternoon only to find the tee times running late because of a frost delay earlier in the morning? A frost delay can be frustrating for everyone. Grass blades are 90 percent water and become brittle when they freeze. Footsteps on frosty grass or a golf cart or mower will cause the plant to rupture and lose its ability to function properly. In about 48 hours, the plant will turn black and die. Frost occurs when the night temperatures drop near or below freezing with clear conditions and no wind. Ice will form in the early morning hours sometimes just before sunrise. Superintendents will hold the crew from going out and mowing, cup cutting and other early morning routines. Once the temperature is above freezing, the sprinklers will be turned on to melt the ice faster. Once the ice has melted, the maintenance crew can begin its work. They will work quickly to get the necessary things done on the course and stay ahead of golfers so they can enjoy the round. On many occasions, the superintendent will water the range and practice areas first to give impatient golfers something to do while they wait for their delayed starting time. So next time you get held up by a frost delay be patient with the staff as they cannot control Mother Nature and her sometimes frosty wrath. Well see you this winter on the green fairways at 7 Rivers. Call us at 795-2100. Say hello to our newest staff members: golf shop manager Troy Suarez and teaching professional Mary Slinkard. Were proud to add these outstanding professionals to our 7 Rivers Golf & Country Club team.

From the U.S. Open last year, it was getting into FedEx Cup, and I went from that to keeping my job. I spent the better part of last year thinking about what would happen. I was mentally fried. McGirt wound up playing every tournament for which he was eligible from June to early November, 14 events in 17 weeks. Disney has been the final official event on the PGA Tour schedule for the last six years, and its always been fascinating to watch the disparity between the haves and the have-nots. Those who were safe inside the top 125 on the money list were mainly concerned about the lines at Mr. Toads Wild Ride. Those on the outside were concerned about keeping their jobs. There is tension over every shot, broken up by the long, low whistle from the train at Thunder Mountain. Jeff Maggert, who turns 49 in February, has been on the PGA Tour for 22 years. His first tour victory was at Disney in 1993, when the tournament had to set up floodlights on the final hole to beat darkness. He had to go to Q-school last year, made it with a few shots to spare, and is on the bubble at No. 122 on the money list. He feels reasonably good about his chances because he has a $51,533 lead over Billy Mayfair at No. 125. Its probably going to be difficult for tour school players to get in events early in the year, Maggert said, looking ahead to 2013. Guys will play a lot of tournaments because of the shorter season. Its good to be fully exempt. The top 125 on the money list is probably a bigger deal than in the past. The top 150 used to be significant. Even if a player wasnt fully exempt, he could count on playing about 15 to 18 tournaments a year. Not anymore. Its not like 125 is really good status and 126 to 150 is pretty good, David Mathis said after wrapping up his tour card a few weeks ago. Now its like 125 is awesome and 126 to 150 is terrible. Thats kind of how the players view it. Kevin Chappell began the Fall Series by getting engaged. Its going to be easier to plan a wedding knowing that hes fully exempt next year, but the Californian has work left. Chappell is at No. 123, and only $7,318 separates him from Gary Christian at No. 127. Even finishing last at Disney pays more than that, so it starts with making the cut. If you finish 126th and dont go to tour school, youre 50 people behind the guy thats 125th on the money list, Maggert said. Youve put 50 guys ahead of you fighting for spots to get into a tournament. And if you dont get any starts until two or three months into the season, with a short season youre pretty far behind. A year ago, Roland Thatcher missed the cut at Disney and lost his card by $1,695. Thatcher played out of the No. 126-150 category this year and got into 20 events, a number that figures to shrink next year. D.J. Trahan finished 125th on the money list and played 26 times. Disney bills itself as the happiest place on earth. There were plenty of long faces on the practice green, which was quiet even for a Tuesday.

Eric van den Hoogen ON COURT Federer opens with win at ATP finalsLONDON Roger Federer opened his quest for a seventh season-ending tour title looking like the man to beat again. The 17-time Grand Slam champion won his record 40th match at the tournament, defeating Janko Tipsarevic 6-3, 6-1 Tuesday in his opening Group B match. Federer lost only eight points on his serve under the roof of the O2 Arena while converting four of his nine break points in the event that features the top eight players in the world. A day after Andy Murray made his return to Britain for the first time since winning the U.S. Open, the crowd got into Tuesdays match, complete with cowbells ringing and constant chanting for Federer. The Swiss star didnt disappoint them, looking like he was right at home from the start. He held at love to open the match, and immediately broke Tipsarevic for a 2-0 lead that held the rest of the way. In the second set, Tipsarevic held serve to start, but couldnt win another game as Federer dazzled the fans with a couple of behind-the-back shots off Tipsarevic serves that had nipped the net. Jaguars short week Jacksonville hosts Indianapolis on little rest Thursday night Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The resurgent Indianapolis Colts have a quick turnaround for a Thursday night game. The timing, though, could be just right. The Colts (5-3) go on the road to face division rival Jacksonville (1-7). The Jaguars are winless at home and are on a five-game skid since beating the Colts 22-17 in Week 3. Indy is riding yet another emotional win, beating the Miami Dolphins 23-20 on Sunday with their coach, Chuck Pagano, watching from the press box in his first appearance at Lucas Oil Stadium since being diagnosed with Leukemia in September. Pagano spoke to the team before the game and then delivered an inspirational speech after. As a veteran player, linebacker Dwight Freeney knows how tough a short turnaround can be. It comes real quick, he said. You get to celebrate that victory for about two hours and two hours after the game after that, we have to get focused on the next opponent and thats the toughest thing. This week will test the Colts. Can they overcome the injuries, the mental drain and the condensed week? Its a first this season for the young team to play a primetime game and to play a game that didnt have a 1 p.m. kickoff. Freeney and other veterans on the team can help by keeping the rookies focused. Theyre experiencing it for the first time and its up to the older guys to kind of keep them, all right look, its about this week, who cares what happened last week, who cares how many games weve won in a row, it doesnt matter, Freeney said. We have to get this victory coming up. Even wide receiver Reggie Wayne was visibly exhausted in the locker room Tuesday. The body knows that on Tuesdays youre normally in bed, he said. So its tough. Were going to have to be dialed in. I think the team that handles this turnaround the best is going to be the team that has the most success. The short week certainly doesnt do any favors to a team with so many injuries. Theres no doubt, Arians said. The recovery time from Sunday to Thursday is ridiculous, especially after playing a very physical game, and then to have to travel. When you add the travel in, you may get some swelling out of your body, but on that airplane, youre going to swell right back up. Arians said he would know more after Tuesdays practice about the status of players with injuries running back Donald Brown (knee), linebacker Robert Mathis (back), tackle Winston Justice (knee), center Samson Satele (back) and Jerraud Powers (toe). Although, Arians says Powers will be out against the Jaguars and is hopeful for the others. At the same time, Freeney is doing his part to get Mathis back on the field. Ive been giving him all types of advice, Freeney said. Ive been telling Rob, hang upside down for five minutes, rub that special oil, whatever it is, Im trying to get him back. I have to get my partner in crime back out there. Jacksonville isnt in any better position with injuries. Maurice JonesDrew will miss his third straight game, out with a left foot sprain. Jones-Drew rushed for 177 yards and touchdown in their first meeting this season. But just as important as dealing with injuries on a short week, veteran kicker Adam Vinatieri says, is being able to prepare mentally. Indianapolis Colts (5-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-7) Time: 8:20 p.m. Thursday TV: NFL Network Associated Press Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Micheal Spurlock catches a pass in front of Detroit Lions cornerback Chris Houston during the second half Sunday in Jacksonville. The Jags took a 31-14 defeat and have to rebound on short rest to host the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday.

The Magic led 70-65 when the Bulls started their decisive run late in the third quarter. Deng tied the game with a jumper with 10:58 to play. Later, Robinson capped the run with a layup in transition. Orlando trimmed the lead to four on Affalos 3 late in the final minute, but Chicago held on down the stretch. Taj Gibsons dunk and free throw with 39 seconds remaining iced it for the Bulls. The Magic pushed the lead to seven in the second quarter behind seven points from Moore before Richard Hamilton closed the lead to 48-45 with a pull-up jumper in transition to close the first half. Orlando went 4 for 6 from 3-point range in the opening half. Chicago closed the gap to two by the end of the third quarter, getting seven points from Deng in the period. Afflalo scored nine points to help Orlando maintain the lead, including three free throws after being foul by Kirk Hinrich behind the arc. Deng scored eight quick points to give the Bulls an early lead to start the game, but Orlando closed the first quarter with an 11-2 run and was up 24-23 at the end of the period. J.J. Redick continued his hot shooting early with a 3pointer and a midrange jumper during the spree. Redick hit 16 of 25 shots in Orlandos first two games. After making his first two shots, Redick hit just one of the next seven before hitting a 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. He handed out a game-high seven assists. NOTES: Orlando point guard Jameer Nelson missed his second straight game because of a strained right hamstring and groin. Hes day to day. While the game was announced as a sellout, there were many more empty seats than usual at the United Center. Beside the elections and the absence of Bulls star Derrick Rose, the weather was cold and drizzly in Chicago. Bulls Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen sat courtside with his wife during the game after playing basketball with President Obama earlier in the day. Despite the loss, Orlando was 8 for 19 from 3-point range. The Magic entered the game with a 53.8 percent mark behind the arc. from Earl Bramlett Stadium, as the Crystal River girls soccer team notched its first win of the year, blanking visiting Belleview 3-0. Pirates head coach Bill Reyes attested that his team has gradually improved with each game this young season, and that building momentum over the first four games finally earned the Pirates a win. Up 1-0 early in the second half, Aubrie Menster scored her second goal of the night for a 2-0 lead in the 45th minute. Cheyenna Lyons streaked up midfield and led Menster with a pass in toward the box. Menster raced behind defenders to the ball, Belleview keeper Cassidy Varnum came out too far and the Pirate slotted the ball into an empty net. It was huge, Reyes said. If they score, not only do they tie the game, but they take the momentum. A lot of times, the game gets easier once you have the momentum, and from there we played smarter, and we built confidence in ourselves. The Lady Pirates (1-3) were poised to grab the mental edge from the beginning, as Mensters feed to Brooke Levins on the wing required a diving save by Varnumfour minutes in. After the Lady Rattlers (01)mustered just one shot on goal over the first 20 minutes, Menster struck for the first score of the evening. From the left side in Belleview territory, Menster maintained possession through a tough one-on-one battle with a Belleview defender. Once able to shake free, she turnedand fired a blast from 10 yards out for the early lead. Crystal River outshot Belleview 16-11, becoming more active offensively as the game wore on and the Pirates seized control of the midfield. Belleview had good opportunities in the second half, but Pirates keeper Minnah Barajas (9 saves)was up to the task, notching her first shutout of the season. One such chance camein the 42nd minute, before Mensters second goal. Belleviews Hannah Jones had a good open look on net with space, but her boot was stepped up on and blocked by sweeper Kyla Dyakon. Id like to give a special mention to Kyla shes a ninth grader, and she anchored the defense really well tonight, Reyes said. Levins scored the third of the night for the Pirates inthe 45th minute, assisted by Melissa Cang Cuesta. Natalie Ezzell led the charge upfield andfound Cuesta out front, who led apass right toward Menster and Levins. Menster let in roll by to Levins, who found the back of the net easily up close. Every game has gotten better and this was our best performance of the season, Reyes said. Crystal River will host Trinity Catholic next Tuesday night. He had no idea about football, either. It wasnt until January that he was able to start working out. Even then, he didnt know if he would be cleared to play again. That came in June, after countless tests to make sure the vessels had not burst again. Hes been through an awful lot, not just with the injury last year, but hes had some tough things happen in his life, some setbacks, coach Will Muschamp said. Any time youre able to see something like that, it makes you feel good about where you are and what youre doing. Hes a really good player, too. Hes a guy that missed football for a year. Its a developmental game. When you miss that much time, it doesnt come back as easily as it does for others. Its come back very quickly for him. Ball started the season opener against Bowling Green as well as Floridas victory over LSU. He intercepted a pass against Georgia, which he called the highlight of his college career. Im happy as a friend, cornerback Jaylen Watkins said. All of us are. He went through a lot. The plays that are coming his way, hes making them and hes just excited to be out there. It means a lot and it shows you should cherish every moment on the field. Ball is a finalist for the Orange Bowl Courage Award, given annually to a player, coach or support person in college football who displays courage on or off the field. Ball, meanwhile, has shared his story with anyone who asks. And it always starts with the worst headache ever. It always reminds me, he said. The experiences Ive been through, I just feel like Ive seen a lot and I learned from it. Other people havent seen some of the things that I have seen. I just feel like because of those things I see things differently. CR Continued from Page B1 MAGIC Continued from Page B1 BALL Continued from Page B1 New owner brings youthful buzz to Memphis Grizzlies Associated PressMEMPHIS, Tenn. Mike Conley says the Grizzlies new owner doesnt look much older than he is. The Memphis guard is right. Robert J. Pera, the Grizzlies new chairman and majority owner, is only nine years older than his point guard. The 34-year-old California businessman is a fresh face from a much different generation than the Grizzlies previous owner 75-year-old billionaire Michael Heisley. I like it, Pera said of being called an NBA owner. It has a nice ring to it. He became one of the youngest owners ever of a major professional sports team when he paid $377 million for the team. Mark Cuban was 41 when he bought the Dallas Mavericks in 2000, and Eddie DeBartolo became the youngest NFL owner ever when he took over the San Francisco 49ers at 30, according to STATS LLC. Pera, looking relaxed wearing a suit jacket with his black shirt unbuttoned at the top, chatted with the more conservative, gray-haired Heisley in his suit and tie Monday night before the Grizzlies beat Utah 103-94. Pera may be young, but NBA commissioner David Stern said Monday night the leagues newest owner has the three things he looks for: passion, deep pockets and knowing how to delegate and hire top management. Stern called Pera passionate as a basketball junkie. Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph has heard Pera not only loves basketball but plays often and can even dunk. Im going to challenge him one-on-one, three dribbles, Randolph said. The Memphis big-man better not be fooled by the new owners youthful appearance; Peras shrewd and doesnt appear to lose much. He has the wherewithal, and he put together a great group. Ill throw into that wherewithal his intellectual wherewithal, Stern said of Pera. Hes a smart businessman, and hes a driven businessman and he understands the potential because of the business hes in, which is basically how to deliver content through the internet to communities that dont easily get it. And were nothing if were not content. Pera, who grew up in San Carlos, Calif., had his own computer services company by the time he was 16. He has degrees in Japanese and electrical engineering along with a masters degree in electrical engineering from the University of CaliforniaSan Diego and worked at Apple as an engineer. He started Ubiquiti Networks in March 2005 and went public in October 2011. The communications technology company taps into WiFi technology to extend Internet access into underserved and rural areas, and Pera wants to use some of the ideas with the Grizzlies. Pera wants more branding and marketing of the team. He talked of bringing more technology not just to the Grizzlies FedExForum arena but Memphis schools as well. And he plans to use the same management approach with the Grizzlies by not having a bunch of management and letting engineers make decisions. One of the things Id like to see moving forward in the culture is to really empower the players to have input on who they want to play with and make them accountable for creating their own team and their own culture, Pera said. I think when you empower people like that you bring out the best in them. The Grizzlies havent had much time to get to know Pera, whose purchase was finalized last week. He spoke to them before Monday nights home opener, and forward Rudy Gay liked what he heard.

Two teams heading in strikingly different directions. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints appear to be on the rise again. Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles are down, and nearly out. Brees threw two touchdown passes, extending his NFL record streak to 51 games in a row, while Vick was sacked seven times and took an awful beating as the Saints romped to a 28-13 victory over the Eagles on Monday night. Not that Philadelphia didnt have its chances. But four first-and-goals resulted in two measly field goals, a tipped pass led to Patrick Robinsons 99-yard interception return for a New Orleans touchdown, and the Eagles messed up a trick play when they had the home team totally fooled, costing them a score. As coaches and as players, we obviously have to do a better job, embattled coach Andy Reid said of the Eagles (3-5), who are mired in a four-game losing streak. That starts with me. The Saints (3-5) revolve around Brees, of course, and he played much better than he did the previous week in a 34-14 loss to Denver. But his performance was more efficient than spectacular, as New Orleans seemed intent on proving its not just a one-man team. The NFLs worst-ranked running game relied on a trio of backs Chris Ivory, Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas and finished with 140 yards, nearly double its season average. Ivory had a 22-yard touchdown run. The defense came up with two huge turnovers near its own end zone. There was Robinsons interception and return, which matched Darren Sharpers franchise record. Then, with just over 3 minutes left and the Eagles down to their last gasp, Brent Celek caught a pass at the New Orleans 8 but fumbled it away. The Saints recovered, and the Superdome celebration was on. There are defining moments throughout a season, Brees said. Big plays, big wins, that kind of bring you together and let you see a vision of what you can be, what you can accomplish. Here we are the midway point. Its gone by fast. This, he added, is the type of momentum we want going into the second half of the season. Another dismal performance by the Eagles keeps the heat on Vick and Reid. Vick threw a 77-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson in the third quarter, but that was about the only highlight for the visiting team. The elusive quarterback matched his career high for sacks; he also went down seven times when playing for the Atlanta Falcons against the New York Giants on Oct. 15, 2006. Its very frustrating, Vick said. These are games that we have the opportunity to win, or get back in the game. At this point, everything has to be dead on. You cant miss, and you almost have to be perfect on every drive. Saints 28, Eagles 13 Philadelphia0310013 New Orleans7147028 First Quarter NORobinson 99 interception return (Hartley kick), 2:36.

The conferences made the announcement Tuesday. The game will still be called the Sugar Bowl and will be played in the Superdome. The agreement between the leagues and the bowl is for 12 years. The SEC has a long history with the Sugar Bowl. Seventy-one times an SEC team has played in the game, far more than any other league. The very first Sugar Bowl in 1935 matched Tulane, then of the SEC, against Temple. New Orleans and the Sugar Bowl are synonymous with post-season college football. For many years, fans have enjoyed the color and pageantry that New Orleans offers, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said in a statement. We look forward to competing against the Big 12 as a new championship tradition begins on New Years Day. The story was first reported by ESPN.com Several sites were vying to host the game, including Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Atlanta, Houston and San Antonio also submitted bids to host the game, but it came down to Arlington and New Orleans. From the moment this game was announced, there has been tremendous excitement associated with the collaboration between these two conferences. That excitement is reflected in the bids received to host this game. There were great cities, attractive destinations, and impressive venues to consider, Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said. Now Big 12 fans can look forward to a New Years tradition and coming to New Orleans to support their team. We are thrilled about our long-term association with our SEC colleagues and to be in partnership with the Allstate Sugar Bowl. The new college football playoff begins after the 2014 season and the first Sugar Bowl in the new format will be played Jan. 1, 2015. It will match the champions from the SEC and Big 12, unless those teams are selected to the national semifinals. In that case, two other highly rated teams from those conferences will be paired up. Were pleased to have been selected to host this great game, Sugar Bowl Chief Executive Officer Paul Hoolahan said. This gives us the chance to extend the Sugar Bowls long-standing relationship with the Southeastern Conference and to develop a new relationship with the Big 12 Conference. The game will be part of the semifinal rotation for the new playoff system, along with the Rose Bowl and the Orange Bowl. Associated Press The Georgia Bulldogs and the rest of the SEC will have the opportunity starting in 2015 to play in the Sugar Bowl and face one of the top teams from the Big 12. AP Pro32 has Falcons on top Texans sit 2nd, TB moves to 14th Associated PressNEW YORK A close call on the field for the Atlanta Falcons, a near unanimous choice to stay atop the AP Pro32 NFL power rankings. Atlanta (8-0) topped Dallas 19-13 over the weekend to remain the leagues only undefeated team. The Falcons received 11 first-place votes and 382 points Tuesday from The Associated Press 12person panel of media members who regularly cover the league. The Houston Texans moved into the second spot by one point ahead of the Chicago Bears. Rounding out the first five are the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers. The New York Giants, second the past three weeks, dropped into a tie for sixth with the New England Patriots after a loss to Pittsburgh. Houston totaled 363 points and Chicago had 362, with San Francisco receiving the other first-place vote and 348 points. The NFL s Bon Jovi, said ESPNs Chris Berman of the Falcons, theyre halfway there, but NOT living on a prayer. Despite the perfect record, not everyones a believer. Undefeated? Yes. Super Bowl threat? Yes. Best team in football? Still not convinced, said Sporting News Clifton Brown, who had the 49ers first and the Falcons third behind the Bears. The Texans moved up a spot after their 21-9 win over Buffalo, while the Giants dropped four places after their third loss of the season. The Bears advanced two places after their 51-20 rout of Tennessee, and are set to host the Texans on Sunday night in a matchup of oneloss teams. Foxsports.coms Alex Marvez said the game could be a preview of Super Bowl XLVII. Many voters singled out the Bears defense, which already has seven interception returns for touchdowns. Which offense would you rather have: Jacksonvilles or the Bears defense? asked CBSSports.coms Clark Judge. Houston, meanwhile, rarely gives up the ball. The Texans lead the lead with just six turnovers. The Texans havent had a turnover in five games this year, notes the Chicago Tribunes Dan Pompei. If they can avoid one Sunday, they can beat the Bears. San Diego and New Orleans made the biggest advances, moving up six spots each the Chargers to 16th, the Saints to 17th despite a 3-5 record. Also, surprising Indianapolis 23-20 winners over Miami improved four places to 12th after starting the season 32nd and last. The Colts are having a magical season, inspired by the fight of their head coach Chuck Pagano and a rookie QB who looks nothing like a rookie, said Fox Sports John Lynch. Andrew Luck already looks like Peyton Manning. Watch out for the Colts, said SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.coms Pat Kirwan. The Philadelphia Eagles, who started the season rated eighth, are now 20th, dropping three spots after Monday nights loss to the Saints. A sinking ship for Andy Reid and Michael Vick, said CBS Sports/Sirius XMs Rich Gannon. Also tumbling were Minnesota and Washington. The Vikings fell six places to 18th, the Redskins five slots to 23rd. Kansas City is 32nd. Romeo Crennel gives up his defensive coordinator duties and appoints Gary Gibbs. Next up: Ben Roethlisbergers Steelers on the road. Good luck with that, said Newsdays Bob Glauber. Associated Press The Atlanta Falcons, seen here playing the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 28, defeated the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and stay No. 1 in the AP Pro32 power rankings.


Rod Stewart can return to TucsonTUCSON, Ariz. The mayor of Tucson doesnt exactly know what Rod Stewart did that got him banned from a Tucson hotel 40 years ago. But Mayor Jonathan Rothschild wants the sexagenarian rocker to know he can return to the city. The Arizona Daily Star reports that Rothschild reached out to Stewart recently when the British television show Loose Women contacted the mayor about Stewarts standing in Tucson. Rothschild wrote, while I cannot speak to any legal obligations he may have, I can say that Mr. Stewart is welcome in our city, and we would be happy to have him visit. According to his biography, Stewart and his former bandmates in Faces trashed several rooms and a miniature train at an unidentified local hotel in retribution for the hotel bar being temporarily closed. ABC raises nearly $17M in storm relief NEW YORK ABC says its national Day of Giving raised nearly $17 million for Superstorm Sandy relief. Throughout its programming Monday, the network urged viewers to contribute to the American Red Cross to help victims of the storm, which affected several Northeastern states, but hit New Jersey and the New York metropolitan area particularly hard. In addition, the Walt Disney Co. made a $1 million contribution to local charities. NBC held a telethon Friday for storm victims that raised nearly $23 million. Brooke Shields mother dead at 79 Teri Shields raised eyebrows when she allowed her 11-year-old daughter, Brooke to be cast as a prostitute in 1978s Pretty Baby. A few years later, she permitted a teenage Brooke Shields to famously star in a series of commercials for Calvin Klein jeans, provocatively professing that nothing comes between me and my Calvins. Teri Shields died last week in New York City, according to Jill Fritzo a spokeswoman for Brooke Shields. She was 79. The New York Timesreported the elder Shields died following a long illness related to dementia. Brooke Shields parted ways professionally with her mother in 1995, describing the move as the hardest thing. C HRISTY L EMIRE Associated PressF or anyone who cringed just a little while watching the trailer for Lincoln and worried that it might be a nearparody of a Steven Spielberg film, with its heartfelt proclamations, sentimental tones and inspiring John Williams score, fret not. The movie itself is actually a lot more reserved than that more a wonky, nuts-and-bolts lesson about the way political machinery operates than a sweeping historical epic that tries to encapsulate the entirety of the revered 16th presidents life. That was a smart move on the part of Spielberg and screenwriter Tony Kushner, a Pulitzer prize-winner for the play Angels in America who also wrote the script for Spielbergs Munich. Talky and intimate but also surprisingly funny, Lincoln focuses on the final four months of Abraham Lincolns life as he fought for the passage of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery, and strove to unite a nation torn apart by the Civil War. (It is based partly on Doris Kearns Goodwins best-seller Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.) This tumultuous period provides a crucible to display everything Lincoln was made of, both his folksiness and fortitude. He tells long, winding anecdotes to enlighten and charm those around him, but also forcefully hammers home his points to get what he wants. Totally unsurprisingly, Daniel Day-Lewis inhabits the role fully. He disappears into it with small details and grand gestures, from his carriage to the cadence of his speech, and the Academy should probably just give him the bestactor Oscar now and get it over with. Although Lincoln itself often feels too conservative, stagey and safe, Day-Lewis performance is full of so many clever choices that he keeps it compelling. Of course, the film has all the top-notch technical hallmarks weve come to expect from Spielberg: Its handsomely staged and impeccable in its production design. But despite the dramatic streaks of misty white light streaming from the outdoors into these dark, solemn rooms of power a signature of his longtime collaboration with Oscarwinning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski Lincoln is much more muted from an aesthetic standpoint than last years equally old-fashioned War Horse. This is a movie thats easier to admire than love; its impressive but not exactly moving. But it is unexpectedly humorous. The process of cajoling and coercing members of Congress to vote for passage of the amendment provides several estimable character actors with wonderfully showy roles. Tommy Lee Jones does a spin on his cantankerous screen persona as the quick-witted, fiercely verbal Republican congressman from Pennsylvania, Thaddeus Stevens, a strong proponent of abolition. David Strathairn is the sharp-minded and condescending Secretary of State William Seward, who was Lincolns foe before becoming a member of his cabinet. There are almost too many great supporting players in juicy, tantalizingly small parts. Youd love to see more from all of them, including Lee Pace as a grandstanding Democrat railing against the amendment on the House of Representatives floor, Michael Stuhlbarg as a conflicted congressman, Hal Holbrook as the powerful Lincoln ally Preston Blair and Jackie Earle Haley as the vice president of the Confederacy. And then there are James Spader, John Hawkes and Tim Blake Nelson as the cynical, glad-handing trio hired to lobby the toughest Democrats and secure those final, crucial votes; their banter is a consistent source of laughs. It gets to the point where major figures in Lincolns life Sally Field as his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as his elder son whos eager to see combat dont register as powerfully as they should because the script is just so packed. And that effort to contain so much history in one feature film especially extends to the ending. This is no spoiler we all know what happened to Lincoln but theres a beautifully photographed moment that occurs before his assassination that would have left the film on the most perfectly lovely, poignant note. Instead, it keeps going and becomes the movie you might have feared Lincoln would be. Lincoln, from DreamWorks Pictures and 20th Century Fox, is rated PG-13 for an intense scene of war violence, some images of carnage and brief strong language. Running time: 150 minutes. Three stars out of four. Review: Day-Lewis positively presidential in safe Lincoln Birthday A number of interesting changes could be in the offing in the year ahead, and they will turn your life around for the better. Your social, business and leisure affairs will all be in for a transformation. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) When it comes to involvements in which money is being exchanged between friends, things must be handled with extreme care, or someone, perhaps you, will end up feeling cheated. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Even after youve achieved an objective, you must take steps to solidify what youve gained. If you dont, all could slip away. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Friends and companions will be more impressed by the example you set than by the philosophy you espouse. Engage in more doing and a lot less talking. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You shouldnt have to be told not to take any gambles on people or things that you know little about. Theres a chance youll be more gullible than usual, and you could easily be had. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Inconsistency substantially lessens your possibilities for success. Its quite likely that youll do things in ways thatll only confuse the people who want to help you. Aries (March 21-April 19) In order to stay in control when working on a critical task, you must maintain your patience throughout the job. If you try to rush your work, a mistake is likely. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Forget about trying for a huge gain by gambling on a big risk. If you cant pull it off, it might cost you far more than what you would have spent doing things the normal way. Gemini (May 21-June 20) By refusing to let others run certain things that youre ill-equipped to handle, complications are likely to arise. It behooves you to take your pride out of the picture. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Be very selective as to which of your friends you can poke and tease without eliciting rancor. A sensitive pal might misinterpret your playfulness and take things seriously. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If you dont handle your commercial matters prudently, any opportunities that do exist could slip through your fingers. Situations in which you would normally do well could end up a shambles. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When you lack focus, youll be unable to bring your forces to bear on important objectives. Its OK to do less, as long as everything is done to the very best of your ability. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Be a positive thinker and behave accordingly. If you start feeling sorry for yourself and making unreasonable demands of others, even those who planned to help you will reject you.

W ELLER The TelegraphALTON, Ill. An Alton parochial middle schools experiment to mostly segregate classes by sex last semester got high marks, and the practice continues this school year, its principal said. Were still doing it; weve gotten good feedback, and the faculty all likes it, said Judy Kulp, assistant principal at St. Marys Middle School, 1015 Milton Road in Alton. In some classes, it helps the young people, Kulp said. At that age, they can be too inhibited to ask questions, and in some classes, they may not be apt to ask questions, such as religion and biology. I think the girls are more open to it than the boys, she said. Boys and girls in all three grades, sixth through eighth, are separated in religion, social studies, science, literature, physical education and art classes, but are together in math and English, where they are grouped by academic level. Kulp said separating the students also has helped reduce distractions, thereby improving academics, which was the idea behind implementing the pilot program in the second semester of the previous school year. We are going to continue to do this as long as our numbers still work, Kulp said, meaning having a close balance between the numbers of boys and girls in the student population. She said there are about 115 students at the school, down from 130 last year, but attributes the dip more to the economy than the segregation. No one coming from fifth grade into sixth grade said it M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterLECANTO Dennis Nguyen is a little bit Mitt Romney. Nicholas Lahera is a little bit Barack Obama. Both said its not the candidate so much as the need to understand the issues and then vote. Dennis and Nicholas are Lecanto Middle School seventh-graders who urged student interest Tuesday in the schools mock election. The schools 700-plus students voted for president, and also chose from finalists for their favorite book cover from a book available for reading in the school library. Media specialist Kris Schirmer said the idea was to encourage participation in the voting process and to pay attention as Obama and Romney debated issues in the last weeks of the campaign. Throughout the whole process, we wanted to help them as young people to be informed, Schirmer said. One student told me yesterday he wasnt going to vote. But he voted today. Dennis and Nicholas presented what they call Democalypse 2012 during the morning show at LMS. With each taking the role of one of the leading presidential contenders, the pair discussed issues and the real differences between the candidates. We spread the word on voting, Dennis said. And they looked the part. Nicholas wore a white shirt and black tie, with a copy of the seal of the United States and an Obama button attached. Dennis wore a My name is Romney I.D. badge. Nicholas said he called Dennis on Monday night and suggested they dress up a bit for Election Day. Both have paid close attention to the presidential race. I think he has done a really good job with the second and third debates, Nicholas said, referring to Obama. Dennis, who admitted his real preference is for Obama, said Romney also has campaigned well. Some of his politics are showing through. He did well on all the debates, he said. Spreading the word on voting Mock election designed to inform students about politics See CLASSES / Page C2 Associated PressCOLUMBIA, Mo. Jewish students in the University of California system labeled terrorists for their support of Israel. Black high school students pelted by bananas on a Tennessee campus tour. A hostile student in Maryland challenging his professor to a fight after the teacher limited the use of cell phones and laptops during lectures. In a society where anonymous Internet commenters freely lob insults, and politicians spew partisan barbs, the decline of basic civility isnt limited to academia. But the push for more polite discourse often as an extension of more entrenched diversity efforts is firmly taking root on campus. From the University of Missouri to Penn State and Vanderbilt, colleges across the country are treating the erosion of common decency as a public health epidemic on par with measles outbreaks and sexually transmitted diseases. What were trying to do is remind me people of what they already know, to get back in touch with things they probably learned growing up, said Noel English, who heads a new Missouri civility campaign called Show Me Respect, a nod to the states nickname. The Missouri campaign comes after two white students pleaded guilty in April 2010 to misdemeanor littering charges for dumping cotton balls outside the schools black culture center during Black History Month; the students were sentenced to 80 hours of community service, two years of probation and had their driver licenses suspended for two months. A 2009 survey of more than 3,500 students found that nearly one in seven reported incidents of harassment on campus, from racial slurs to hostile emails. At a campus civility workshop earlier this week, Eric Waters, a junior from M ONICA R HOR Houston ChronicleHOUSTON In the morning, Donna Shanklin-Henderson settles her soul and girds her spirit with prayer and meditation. She banishes the tiniest pebbles of pessimism and fixes her mind on one abiding thought. All of my students will go home, she tells herself, inscribing the belief deep in her core. They will live happy, healthy lives. Then Shanklin-Henderson heads to Texas Childrens Hospital and boards an elevator to the 16th floor, rising past floors awash in shades of teal blue, mint green and sunshine yellow, past rooms where children battle cancer and brain tumors, leukemia and lupus, diabetes and other diseases with names too tongue-twisting to pronounce. Past doctors in white coats and nurses in surgical scrubs. Past teenagers in wheelchairs and toddlers tugging IV carts. Shanklin-Hendersons destination is tucked in the corner of a purple hallway, where a brightly colored sign beckons: Welcome to Room 286. HISD Schools. Inside the room, in a place where daily miracles coexist with unimaginable losses, she and two fellow Houston Independent School District teachers, Elisama Lerma and Natasha Mallone, offer hope in the guise of a lesson plan. They provide a link to normalcy for children whose lives have been upended, a soothing shoulder for parents whose strength is being strained. They craft schedules around bone marrow transplants and physical therapy sessions. They teach phonics to kindergartners recovering from brain surgery, and science to high school students enduring chemotherapy. And, using Civility efforts seek better behavior on campus Teachers bring school to ill children JAMES NIELSEN /Houston Chronicle Texas Childrens Hospital Child Life Department HISD teacher Donna Shanklin-Henderson, right, works on a lesson with student patient Nolan Naranjo, center, as RN Melisa Muse checks on Naranjo at the hospital in Houston.

laptops, iPads and a computer on wheels, they bring school to the bedsides of children unable to leave their rooms. But each day begins with a reminder that this is not a regular classroom, and that their pupils grapple with problems much bigger than passing a test. Thats when ShanklinHenderson reviews the hospital census to see which students are still enrolled. Some may have been released. Others may have changed rooms. A few may have been transferred to different floors as their condition worsens or improves. And, sometimes, on the bleakest of days, one of their kids may not have made it through the night. Miracles are happening all the time. We see kids improving, so my expectation is that all of my students will get better, Shanklin-Henderson says. But here every day, theres the possibility that their recovery might not happen the way you like. Indeed, during a twoweek span in October, the teachers in Room 286 hailed the achievements of children emerging from illness, bid happy good-byes to students ready to go home and were left staggered and grief-stricken by the sudden death of a young patient with gentle eyes and a lyrical laugh. Just after 9:30 a.m. on the second Thursday of October, Shanklin-Henderson bursts into Room 34 of the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit like a cheerful tornado. She is swathed in billowing blue blue latex gloves, blue plastic hospital gown, a face mask decorated with pastel pink and blue teddy bears. And she tows a COW, a computer on wheels stocked with crayons, stickers, reading primers and educational games. Nolan Naranjo sits on his hospital bed, wearing Super Mario Brothers pajamas and neon green socks adorned with black spiders. He is five fingers old, with huge brown eyes, and, as his mother puts it, the most beautiful bald head. Two weeks earlier, Nolan received a bone marrow transplant to fight myelodysplastic syndromes, also known as preleukemia. Without the transplant, said his mother, Jennifer Naranjo, he likely would have developed acute myelogenous leukemia, which is much harder to treat. Like other patients on the eighth floor, Nolan has a suppressed immune system, forcing him to remain in isolation. But that doesnt stop Shanklin-Henderson from making sure the kindergartner from Brownsville keeps up in school. I see you did your homework. Excellent! Good job! coos Shanklin-Henderson, who has a voice as smooth as molasses and the demeanor of everyones favorite kindergarten teacher. You ready to play a game? Nolan nods his head slowly, scooting closer to the tray table by his bed. He has a busy hour ahead of him. On todays agenda: an alphabet game, learning the A sound, Richard Scarrys Best Learning Songs Video Ever, and letter-writing practice. Shanklin-Henderson leads him through the lessons with a mixture of coddling, clapping and delicate nudging. She grasps Nolans tiny fingers in her blue-gloved hand and guides his pencil as he painstakingly traces a capital A. She sings along to the video, with Nolan softly crooning the lyrics to himself: Shapes, shapes, all around. As they review the days of the week, the month, and the year, Shanklin-Henderson exclaims, Youre so super smart. It is a routine straight out of any kindergarten classroom. Except that Nolan is tethered to a tangle of cords connected to IV drips and monitors. Except that, as he learns that A is for alligator, one of those monitors begins to beep furiously. Except that, when a nurse changes his IV bag, Nolan, inured to pokes and prods and pinches, doesnt even flinch. And neither does his teacher. The young girl with luminous eyes and a shorn head perches on the edge of her bed, in a room the color of lemon meringue pie. She wears sky blue pajamas, dangling earrings and a carved white Buddha pendant around her thin neck. If she had not gotten sick from a blood disorder, My Nguyen would be in ninth grade. Instead, like all school-age patients admitted for four weeks or longer, My qualified to enroll in the hospital school, which is run through HISDs Community Services department and Texas Childrens Child Life program. She takes online classes through Connections Academy, as do most of the high school students, and receives regular visits from Elisama Lerma, a teacher whose smile contains infinite tenderness. Lerma works with many of the older students and Spanish-speaking patients. Earlier that morning, she nodded approvingly while scanning Mys grades and showed off an email the 14year-old had written in flawless Spanish. Despite her illness, My carries a full load of classes and never misses an assignment. At Lermas urging, she has even pushed past her own reticence to take speech and debate. But it is Spanish she loves, Spanish she cant wait to practice, Spanish she dreams of speaking fluently someday. Hola, coma estas? Lerma greets her student. Muy bien, gracias, replies the soft-spoken My. Are you feeling better? asks Lerma, who is bundled in the protective blue gear required on the eighth floor. I really love your email in Spanish. You are doing excellent. My beams with shy pride. She eagerly demonstrates her math skills in Spanish, clicking numbers on the screen of Lermas laptop and counting from cero to veinte. She picks words on index cards to match the illustrations: muchacho for boy, seor for man, seorita for young woman. And she giggles. All the time. She giggles when prompted to call an imaginary character feo, or ugly, when Lerma commends her with a hearty muy bien, when a nurse stops by to draw blood for labs and jokes You are on it! But she giggles the most when Lerma promises to return with cumbia, salsa and merengue music and dancing lessons.

The scholarships, donated anonymously in honor of Olga and John Sloboda, are available to Citrus County high school freshmen. Kylie Philipps was one of the students who attended both programs. The two weeks I spent at UF in these programs were the two best experiences I have ever had at any camp, she said. During Science Quest the students looked through Windows into Science with UFs Center for Precollegiate Education and Training, engaging in experiments, fun activities, tours and lectures. Students interacted with graduate students in the fields of astronomy and zoology, as well as UF medical students and the MicroGraviGators, an undergraduate engineering team working with NASA. Christian Javiers group created a parody song called Cholera in Haiti (available on YouTube) and won the award for best group project. Future Animal Career Experiences for Students (FACES), administered by UFs College of Veterinary Medicine, worked closely with their faculty and staff to create a brand new summer program for the students. Through tours, lectures, hands-on experiences and shadowing clinicians, the students were exposed to a variety of clinical services, including radiology, oncology, dentistry and equine medicine. Other activities included site visits to Marineland, the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, Lubee Bat Conservatory and a visit from the Gainesville Police Canine Unit. Students also created and shared videos of their weeklong scavenger hunt with each other and their families in real time.

UF science camp enlightens local high school students Special to the Chronicle Jack Mueller learns to use a micropipette before performing a separation of DNA fragments via gel electrophoresis. was a deterring factor, she said. Because all but the new students already spent at least one semester in a segregated setting, the division now is normal for St. Marys, she said. Its what they expect; its normal, she said. As a first step, during the 2010-11 school year, the school had segregated sixthgraders before going schoolwide in the second semester of the 2011-12 year. Kulp said in February the faculty was involved in the decision to involve all three grades of the school in the sex segregation. Kulp and teachers from St. Marys had visited Chaminade College Preparatory School in West St. Louis County, Mo., to see firsthand a boys-only school, which has sixth grade through high school. CLASSES Continued from Page C1 SCHOOL Continued from Page C1 Mansfield, Texas, who is the football teams starting tight end, described how other students often label Mizzou football players as mean and disrespectful womanizers, sometimes to his face. Its not about the stereotypes people put on us, he said. We try to carry ourselves like true gentlemen. The University of Tennessee enacted its civility campaign in 2011. There had been a cotton ball incident at the Knoxville schools black cultural center after President Barack Obamas election and, in 2010, bananas were thrown at a group of more than 100 black high school students from Memphis during a campus visit. We want to be a campus thats welcoming to all, and hostile to none, said Chancellor Jimmy Cheek, who now outlines the schools 10 principles of civility and community at freshman orientation. The shared values range from inclusivity and collegiality to respect and integrity. In some cases, the campus civility campaigns are being challenged by First Amendment advocates who fear that such programs muzzle unpopular speech in the name of tolerance and diversity.
