County works to find homes for shelter cats C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterM ost people like cats. Euthanizing them causes guilt. Trying not to put to sleep many of the hundreds of cats taken into the Citrus County Animal Services shelter has been a challenge for county staff and commissioners. Cats have not been adopted at the same rate as dogs, who have been favored almost 2 to 1. Gradually, by working on new approaches, more cats are finding homes. Weve seen a 9 percent increase in cat adoptions since Sept. 15, said Pattie Amon, animal services operations manager. Thats the result of the free cats program, introduced by Commissioner JJ Kenney, which waives the adoption fees of $35 for cats for a six-month period from Sept. 15 to March 15 to improve the shelters adoption rates. The original adoption price for a cat was $35, which included the spaying or neutering surgery, vaccinations and microchip, Amon said. Considering the costs, the original fee was a bargain. According to Dr. Julie Rosenberger, director and staff veterinarian, vaccinations cost the county $7.75, with an additional $2.60 for boosters. Flea treatment and deworming costs are $7.90. A microchip costs $5.95. The leukemia test costs $9. Ear mite treatment, if necessary, is $5.50. In addition, surgical supplies can cost $10. Total costs can range from $30 to $36 per cat for the county. Now the cost is $5, just to cover the license. At any given time, the shelter houses 85 to 100 INSIDE NOVEMBER 26, 2012 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 118 ISSUE 111 50 CITRUS COUNTY Last-second loss: Bucs drop close one at home /B1 LOCAL NEWS: Habitat Habitat for Humanity includes mandatory classes./ Page A3www.chronicleonline.com WEIRD WIRE: Belated A postcard sent in 1943 finally arrives./ Page A9 INDEX Comics....................B8 Crossword................B7 Editorial..................A10 Entertainment..........B6 Horoscope................B6 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B6 Movies......................B8 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B7 Classifieds................B9 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Have you completed all your holiday shoping?

But the issue could be back in front of the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) on Dec. 4. For the past two years, SBDC has received annual county funding enabling it to provide a local fullservice office. The money $32,500 a year came from the business tax receipts (formerly known as occupational license fees) paid by county businesses and earmarked for economic development services to local businesses. The local share allowed SBDC to attract and leverage approximately $70,000 of federal and state funding to invest in the full-time office in Citrus County.The Citrus County Chamber of Commerce provided office space. Renewal of the countys funds was due in May and supported by the Citrus County Economic Development Council and the chamber.However, in a surprise County office staffed three days a month In touch with inner felines DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Cat adoption rates have increased 9 percent at the Citrus County Animal Services shelter since the county waived the adoption fee Sept. 15.

DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Rivard Reding helps Ashley Gibson use a level at her Habitat for Humanity house being constructed in Homosassa Springs. Reding is a paid worker for Habitat for Humanity. S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterA Lecanto man faces felony charges after a Homosassa man called emergency services on Sunday from a gas station to report hed been stabbed and punched. Justin Adam Bernstein, 25, of West Cinnamon Ridge Drive, Lecanto, was arrested at 1:55 p.m. Sunday on South Gaynor Drive, Lecanto, on charges of aggravated battery intentionally causing great bodily harm, permanent disability or disfigurement and robbery with a firearm or other dangerous weapon. His bond is $55,000. According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Offices arrest report, a 23-year-old Homosassa man contacted dispatch shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday to report he had been stabbed near the intersection of Creed Avenue and Cyrus Street in Crystal River. Although none of the mans injuries appeared to be lifethreatening, he was taken to Citrus Memorial hospital for treatment. While in the hospital, the man told how he met with Bernstein in the parking lot of the Brannen Bank at the intersection of State Road 44 and Creed Avenue to buy some cannabis. The man told officers he and Bernstein drove in his vehicle to a residence on Creed Avenue. Bernstein entered the residence, but when he came out, the man said the transaction was no good. According to the report, the man said Bernstein pressed a knife to his head and neck and demanded money. An officer observed minor lacerations to the mans neck. The victim said Bernstein also struck him in the face with his left hand while holding the knife in his right hand. The man said as he tried to push Bernstein away with his foot, Bernstein grabbed his ankle and sliced his lower left calf with the knife. An officer observed the man had defensive stab wounds to his left arm, cuts to his right hand and swelling to his forehead and under his right eye, which also was bleeding. The man showed officers how his clothing was ripped as personal property was taken from him. He said he kicked Bernstein in the face, allowing him to lock his vehicle door and drive to the Sunoco gas station. Officers contacted Bernstein, who arranged to turn himself in. According to the report, Bernstein said he suspected the man was trying to cheat him, because he increased the amount of cannabis he wanted to a quarter pound and said he had to go somewhere else to get the money. Bernstein said the man attacked him and pulled a knife. He said he did not recall stabbing the man or taking his property. As he had no explanation as to how the man sustained his injuries, Bernstein was arrested. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvan ormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Police: Drug dispute leads to stabbing Lecanto man faces assault charges Justin Bernstein is accused of stabbing a Homosassa man. Editors note: For nearly 20 years in Citrus County, Habitat for Humanity has been making peoples dreams of owning their own home come true. The Chronicle often presents stories and photos of wall raisings and home dedications. On Sept. 18, we began a series covering the entire Habitat process, from the first orientation class to a new homeowner family getting the key to the front door. Todays story: Mandatory Tuesday homeownership training classes. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Its more like a family meeting than a training class, as Citrus County Habitat for Humanity executive director Terry Steele sits at the head of a conference table. Every Tuesday night for five weeks, potential Habitat homeowners some having worked on their houses, others still working to get their down payment and required sweat equity volunteer hours in before they can start to build meet with Steele for five mandatory classes. Class one: Introduction to Habitat for Humanity history, requirements for being accepted into the program, budgeting. Class two: Credit card lending too good to be true offers, check cashing stores, pawn shops. Class three: Mortgages and insurance monthly payments, foreclosures, insurance, escrow. Class four: Being a good neighbor zoning laws, pets, neighbors. Class five: Home care and repair home maintenance tips, important safety devices, yard care. On a recent Tuesday night, Terry Steele started the training class with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. He looked around the table and said, When youre part of Habitat, youre part of the family. He commended some of the people about their diligence in getting in their sweat equity volunteer hours and chided others to pick up the pace. If you have any questions, come talk to me, he said. Steele probably repeats that sentence no less than 20 times a day. He wants everyone who wants and qualifies for a Habitat home to succeed in getting one. This particular class was about mortgages and insurance. Other classes deal with topics ranging from financial budgeting and credit traps to being a good neighbor and being responsible for home repairs. One of the homework assignments is to keep a record of every single purchase for a set period of time, which is a huge eye-opener. For Ashley and Lance Gibson, it was shocking to see how much money they spent on Lances lunch breaks. As a tire and lube express technician at Walmart in Inverness, he had been used to eating at the McDonalds inside the store or going to nearby Wendys because it was convenient. We didnt have a budget until our class with Terry, Ashley said. Since then, weve adjusted a lot of things, like getting a different car insurance company, not going out to eat and now (Lance) gets his lunch from the deli counter, which saves a lot. Classes are designed to get people who have never owned a home before to stop thinking like a renter and start thinking like a homeowner. Steele continually stresses, Its yourhouse. When it comes to something needing repair after a homeowner moves in, its not uncommon for the person to call Steele for help, just as renters are used to calling a landlord. We tell them, When something goes wrong, you have to look in the mirror to see whos going to fix it, he said, adding when people do call, often he can talk them through some things to do before they call a repair service and save them $75 for a service call. These classes open your eyes to things you normally wouldnt consider as a renter, said Jamil Namey, who has not started building his house yet. They give us helpful, useful information so youre informed going into your home rather than getting into your home and finding out what you should know. Next up: Almost home the finishing touches.

Change in thinking From renter to owner, Habitat class teaches homeowners to think differently Search for suffocation found on Anthony computer Associated PressORLANDO The Florida sheriffs office that investigated the disappearance of Casey Anthonys 2-year-old daughter overlooked evidence that someone in their home conducted a Google search for fool-proof suffocation methods on the day the girl was last seen alive. Orange County sheriffs Capt. Angelo Nieves said Sunday the offices computer investigator missed the June 16, 2008, search. The agencys admission was first reported by Orlando television station WKMG. Its not known who performed the search. The station reported it was done on a browser primarily used by the 2-year-olds mother, Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of the girls murder in 2011. Anthonys attorneys argued during trial Casey Anthony helped her father, George Anthony, cover up the girls drowning in the family pool. WKMG reported sheriffs investigators pulled 17 vague entries only from the computers Internet Explorer browser, not the Mozilla Firefox browser commonly used by Casey Anthony. More than 1,200 Firefox entries, including the suffocation search, were overlooked. Whoever conducted the Google search looked for the term fool-proof suffication, misspelling suffocation, and then clicked on an article about suicide that discussed taking poison and putting a bag over ones head. The browser then recorded activity on the social networking site MySpace, which was used by Casey Anthony but not her father. A computer expert for Anthonys defense team found the search before the trial. Her lead attorney, Jose Baez, first mentioned the search in his book about the case but suggested it was George Anthony who conducted the search after Caylee drowned because he wanted to kill himself. Not knowing about the computer search, prosecutors had argued Caylee was poisoned with chloroform and then suffocated by duct tape placed over her mouth and nose. The girls body was found six months after she disappeared in a field near the family home and was too decomposed for an exact cause of death to be determined. Casey Anthony Around THE COUNTY Applicants sought for planning boardThe Citrus County Commission is accepting applications for the Planning and Development Commission, which meets the first and third Thursdays of the month.

Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE The state of Florida is asking thousands of young women some intimate questions about their sex lives and is giving them a $10 gift card in return but some who received the survey are offended.The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Sunday the Department of Health sent surveys to 4,100 women between 18 and 24, giving participants a CVS gift card. Officials say the survey will help them understand womens need for and approach to family-planning services. The state spent $45,000 on the 46question survey, which was sent out in September and October, and 782 have been returned. Participants were asked how many men they had sex with in the past year, whether a man ever poked holes in a condom to get them pregnant and how they felt emotionally the last time they had unprotected sex. A November batch werent mailed after it was found that some of the surveys were sent to girls under 18. We obviously offered an apology sent back in writing and will work to ensure that moving forward, this never happens again, state Surgeon General Dr. John Armstrong told the paper. He added participation is voluntary. If somebody sees something they dont like, they can rip it up and throw it in the garbage can, he said. The state says the names of those surveyed will be kept private, but some who received it questioned whether that would be true and how their answers would be used. David Brown, a Broward County political consultant, said he was given the survey by a woman who was offended when she received it. Some of the questions are incredibly offensive and invasive, Brown told the Sun-Sentinel She thought that it was an unconscionable invasion of her privacy. There wasnt enough information to tell her who really did this and where the budget was for it, whether the information was going to be kept private, and really, what are they talking about in terms of how does this information in any way help? The paper reported several questions from the survey: How did you feel emotionally when you had unprotected sex were you trying to get pregnant, were you in the heat of the moment and just went with the flow, or did you find the man attractive and thought it would be nice to have a baby with him? Did you feel powerless? Or was it that you felt emotionally connected with your partner during sex? How old were you when you first had sex? The last time you had sex with a man did you do anything to keep from getting pregnant? If not, why not? Has a sexual partner ever told you he would have a baby with someone else if you didnt get pregnant? Physically forced you to have sex? Hurt you physically because you did not agree to get pregnant? Are you depressed? Have you ever been physically abused? Whats your religion? Do you smoke? How much do you weigh? Armstrong said the survey was created using questions that have appeared in other surveys used nationally and it was vetted by review boards at the state health department and Florida A&M University. The state says Florida has one of the lowest rates of contraceptive use among women of child-bearing age. The results will be used to design the states service offerings, including pamphlets and counseling. Women can receive contraceptives at the health department for a fee thats based on income.

Highland Boulevard, Inverness. move, the county commission voted to eliminate SBDC funding from the budget. Unable to attract federal and state dollars without receiving county matching dollars, the SBDC was forced to begin the process of reducing its operation in Citrus County. Several commissioners had expressed an interest in bringing the issue back for another vote; so, in good faith, the SBDC drew on reserve funds to continue its full-time operation for more than six months. At its Nov. 13 meeting, the BOCC again postponed a decision to provide the funds. According to an SBDC news release, with the reserve exhausted, the agency has been forced to reduce its services to Citrus County until matching funds can be restored. SBDC has been the arm of the EDC, John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council, said at that meeting. Its another person on the street dealing with companies that are here and want to survive and grow. They are making that happen. They give us $70,000 in a federal grant, you spend $32,500 and are receiving a $100,000 worth of effort. Commissioner J.J. Kenney put forth a motion to reinstate the funding, but Commissioner Dennis Damato said he wanted to see more transparency and accountability. He expressed concern about the value of the organization and duplication of services. Kenney rescinded his motion and asked the issue be referred until Dec. 4. This will provide an opportunity for additional information on the request and the new commissioner will be on board. For now, the SBDC office in Homosassa will be staffed three days a month. New, current and past clients can call 866-998-8332 for an appointment on one of these days as availability allows. Should county funding be restored, SBDC will resume full-time consulting, training and information services from offices in Homosassa, Inverness and Crystal River.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

cats. During the summer, the cat population increased to the point where the shelter started half-price cat adoptions to place more of the pets into homes. Rosenberger told commissioners the half-price program increased adoptions significantly when compared to previous months. Now, the free adoptions program, which requires adopters to buy a $5 county cat license, has been compared to the same time span as last year. According to Amon, from Sept. 15, 2012, to Nov. 20, 2012, a 10-week period, 549 cats were brought into the shelter. Of that total, 433 cats were adopted and 65 were transferred to animal rescue groups. By the numbers, 498 of the 549 cats made their way out of the shelter. That is a 9 percent increase in adoptions compared to the same period for 2011: 384 cats were adopted and 65 were transferred. Commissioner Kenney brought this idea forward just to see what it would do for the cat adoptions, Amon said. So far, the cat count looks healthier than before, which bodes favorably for the sixmonth trial. Volunteers help county shelter staff on a focused mission to make the free adoption program successful. Much work goes into taking in the cats and preparing them for adoption. Cats that come in, whether they are strays or surrendered or seized, they all are tested for leukemia before they are put into the shelter, Amon said. We dont know what they have been exposed to when they come in here. It would help the shelter, Amon said, if people who surrender their pets would take their vaccination records to the shelter with the animal to avoid unnecessary medicating. An impounded cat starts in the shelters garage, where animal control officers can leave them after business hours. After testing, medicating and having its health confirmed, a cat goes into one of two rooms in the shelter where it can be seen and adopted. One room has several enclosures, each holding one or more cats. The other room is one large enclosure provided by a volunteer for about six to 10 cats. But its not just a kitty jail. The volunteers are huge in the adoption effort, Amon said. We have people who basically just come in and sit in this room and one after the other they play with the cats to keep them socialized and friendly. The free adoption for cats program is part of the commissions Strive for Life resolution passed Nov. 15. By compromise with animal advocate groups, the commission unanimously passed the resolution after having found a proposal for a nokill shelter unrealistic as a goal. The Strive for Life program commits the county to five procedures the shelter is conducting: Working with nonprofit organizations to promote adoptions. Hiring a volunteer outreach coordinator to increase the level of volunteerism at the shelter and coordinate outreach activities in the community. Obtaining a mobile adoption unit to increase public awareness and raise adoption rates. Coordinating with local partners for the implementation of the feral cat trap, neuter and release program. Continuing to provide public education about the importance spaying and neutering. On the latter point, Amon said anyone with a pet could reduce the necessity of euthanizing animals by spaying or neutering that pet. Citing statistics from the ASPCA, she said one unspayed female cat that produces three litters of four to five kittens per year potentially could create more than 91 million cats within seven years if all offspring survived and produced exponentially. Every year, as many as four million dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States. According to the ASPCA, these high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.

according to the annual Christmas Price Index compiled by PNC Wealth Management. That comes to $107,300. The rise is larger than expected considering the modest economic growth weve had, said Jim Dunigan, managing executive of investments for PNC. He noted the governments Consumer Price Index has risen 2 percent in the 12 months before September. Thrifty shoppers may find some reasons for cheer. Six items mentioned in the song havent gone up in price: maids-a-milking, ladies dancing, lords-aleaping, calling birds, turtle doves and the partridge. The eight maids-a-milking still cost just $58 because the minimum wage hasnt risen. Twelve drummers drumming ($2,775.50) and eleven pipers piping ($2,562) might also be considered relative bargains compared to seven swans, which will set you back $7,000. Nine ladies dancing will cost you $6,294.03. Dunigan said the 2011 drought caused the prices of some birds to soar, partly because of corn and other feed costs. The geese were up 29.6 percent, and swans were up 11 percent, Dunigan said, adding none of the gifts in the song went down in price this year. The price of a pear tree is $189.99, an 11.8 percent jump from last years $169.99. Five gold rings jumped 16.3 percent this year, to $750, and three French hens are now $165, instead of $150. The $15 partridge is the cheapest item, and swans the most expensive, at $1,000 each. Last-minute shoppers who turn to the Internet will pay a bit more for the gifts. Buying one set of the core items in each verse costs $24,431 in traditional stores this year, but $40,440 online. Part of that difference is the extra expense of shipping live birds, Dunigan said, adding Internet costs rose 1.5 percent compared to last year. PNC Financial Services Group Inc. checks jewelry stores, dance companies, pet stores and other sources to compile the list. Some of its sources this year include the National Aviary in Pittsburgh and the Philadelphia-based Pennsylvania Ballet Company. Annie Johnson Senior & Familys Food Pantry 1991 W.

Associated PressThink Sandy was just a 100-year storm that devastated New York City? Imagine one just as bad, or worse, every three years. Prominent planners and builders said now is the time to think big to shield the citys core: a 5-mile barrier blocking the entryway to New York Harbor, an archipelago of man-made islets guarding the tip of Manhattan, or something like CDM Smith engineer Larry Murphys 1,700-foot barrier complete with locks for passing boats and a walkway for pedestrians at the mouth of the Arthur Kill waterway between the borough of Staten Island and New Jersey. Act now, before the next deluge, and they said it could even save money in the long run.Strategies These strategies arent just pipe dreams. Not only do these technologies already exist, some of the concepts have been around for decades and have been deployed successfully in other countries and U.S. cities. So if the science and engineering are sound, the longterm cost would actually be a savings, and the frequency and severity of more killer floods is inevitable, whats the holdup? Political will.Roadblocks Like the argument in towns across America when citizens want a traffic signal installed at a dangerous intersection, Sandys 43 deaths and estimated $26 billion in damages citywide might not be enough to galvanize the public and the politicians into action. Unfortunately, they probably wont do anything until something bad happens, said CDM Smiths Murphy. And I dont know if this will be considered bad enough. Weather forecastsSandy and her 14-foot surge not bad enough? By centurys end, researchers forecast up to four feet higher seas, producing storm flooding akin to Sandys as often as several times each decade. Even at current sea levels, Sandys floodwaters filled subways, other tunnels and streets in parts of Manhattan. Without other measures, rebuilding will simply augment the future destruction. Yet thats what political leaders are emphasizing. President Barack Obama himself has promised to stand with the city until the rebuilding is complete. So it might take a worse superstorm or two to really get the problem fixed.Wrong focusThe focus on rebuilding irks people such as Robert Trentlyon, a retired weekly newspaper publisher in lower Manhattan who is campaigning for sea barriers to protect the city: The public is at the woe-is-me stage, rather than how-dowe-prevent-this-in-thefuture stage. He belongs to a coterie of professionals and ordinary New Yorkers who want to take stronger action. Though pushing for a regional plan, they are especially intent on keeping Manhattan dry. The 13-mile-long island serves as the countrys financial and entertainment nerve center. Within a 3mile-long horseshoe-shaped flood zone around its southernmost quadrant are almost 500,000 residents and 300,000 jobs. Major storms swamp places such as Wall Street and the site of the World Trade Center.PreventionProven technology already exists to blunt or virtually block wind-whipped seas from overtaking lower Manhattan and much of the rest of New York City, according to a series of Associated Press interviews with engineers, architects and scientists and a review of research on flooding issues in the New York metropolitan area and around the globe. These strategies range from hard structures such as mammoth barriers equipped with ship gates and embedded at entrances to the harbor, to softer and greener shoreline restraints like man-made marshes and barrier islands. Additional landfill, the old standby once used to extend Manhattan into the harbor, could further lift vulnerable highways and other sites beyond the reach of the seas. Even more simply, the rock and concrete seawalls and bulkheads already in lower Manhattan could be built up, but perhaps with high-tech wave-absorbing or wave-reflecting materials. Two conceptsSeizing the initiative from government, business and academic circles have fleshed out several dramatic concepts to hold back water before it tops the shoreline. Two of the most elaborate proposals are: A rock causeway, with 80-foot-high swinging ship gates, would sweep five miles across the entryway to inner New York Harbor from Sandy Hook, N.J., to Breezy Point, N.Y. To protect Manhattan, another shorter barrier is needed to the north, where the East River meets Long Island Sound, and another small blockage would go up near Sandy Hook. An extensive green makeover of lower Manhattan would install an elaborate drainage system beneath the streets, build up the very tip by 6 feet, pile 30-foot earthen mounds along the eastern edge, and create perimeter wetlands and a phalanx of artificial barrier islets all to absorb the brunt of a huge storm surge. Plantings along the streets would help soak up runoff that floods the city sewers during heavy rains.

If the trash truck or bus rolling down your street seems a little quieter these days, youre not imagining things. Its probably running on natural gas. Surging gas production has led the drilling industry to seek out new markets for its product, and energy companies, increasingly, are setting their sights on the transportation sector. Touting natural gas as a cheaper, cleaner-burning alternative to gasoline and diesel, drillers, public utilities and government officials are trying to boost demand for natural gas buses, taxis, shuttles, delivery trucks and heavy-duty work vehicles of all sorts, while simultaneously encouraging development of the fueling infrastructure that will be needed to keep them running. The economics are compelling. Natural gas costs about $1.50 to $2 per gallon equivalent less than gasoline and diesel. That can add up to tens of thousands of dollars in savings for vehicles that guzzle fuel. Fleet managers are taking notice. Companies as diverse as AT&T, Waste Management and UPS are converting all or parts of their fleets to natural gas, as are transit agencies, municipalities and state governments. Now that you can save a dollar or two dollars a gallon, theres huge interest in the market, especially in those fleets that use a lot of fuel, said Richard Kolodziej, president of the trade group Natural Gas Vehicles for America. Waste Management, the nations largest trash hauler, has committed to replacing 80 percent of its fleet with trucks powered by natural gas. Rich Mogan, the companys district manager in southwestern Pennsylvania, said about half of his fleet of 100 trucks run on the cheaper fuel. They are quieter and less expensive to maintain, he said, and we are looking at a 50 percent reduction in our (fuel) cost. Driller EQT Corp. opened its own natural gas filling station outside Pittsburgh in summer 2011, using it to refuel its trucks while also making it available to the public. Its now doing about 1,000 fill-ups a month and only half involve EQT vehicles. Other users include City of Pittsburgh trash trucks, shuttles run by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, a taxi service and a handful of consumers. Natural gas drillers target trucks, buses Problem prevention Will NYC act to block future storm surges?

deals at midnight Monday, is offering as much as 60 percent off a Panasonic VIERA 55-inch TV thats usually priced higher than $1,000. Sears is offering $430 off a Maytag washer and dryer, each on sale for $399. And Kmart is offering 75 percent off diamond earrings and $60 off a 12-in-1 multigame table on sale for $89.99. Retailers are hoping the deals will appeal to shoppers such as Matt Sexton, 39, who for the first time plans to complete all his holiday shopping online this year on his iPad tablet computer. Sexton, who plans to spend up to $4,000 this season, already shopped online on the day after Thanksgiving known as Black Friday and found a laptop from Best Buy for $399, a $200 savings, among other deals. The descriptions and reviews are so much better online so you can compare and price shop and for the most part get free shipping, said Sexton, who lives in Queens, N.Y., and is a manager at a utility company. Sexton also said its easy to return an online purchase to a physical store than it had been in previous years. That helps with gifts, he said. How well retailers do on Cyber Monday will offer insight into Americans evolving shopping habits. With the growth in high speed Internet access and the wide and increasing use of smartphones and tablet computers, people are relying less on their work computers to shop than they did when Shop.org, the digital division of trade group The National Retail Federation, coined the term Cyber Monday. As a result, the period between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday has have become busy for online shopping as well. Indeed, IBM Benchmark, which tracks online sales, said on Thanksgiving, a day that historically had not been big for online shopping, online sales this year rose 17.4 percent over 2011. Of that, mobile shopping, or shopping on smartphones and tablets, rose 18.3 percent. Meanwhile, online sales on Black Friday were up 20.7 percent. For the overall holiday season, comScore predicts online sales will be up 17 percent to $43.4 billion. And the research firm expects online sales to surpass 10 percent of total retail spending this holiday season. The National Retail Federation estimates that overall retail sales in November and December will be up 4.1 percent this year to $586.1 billion People years ago didnt have the kind of connectivity to shop online at their homes. So when they went back to work after Thanksgiving theyd shop on the Monday after, said Vicki Cantrell, executive director of Shop.org. Now they dont need the work computer to be able to do that. But as other days become popular for online shopping, Cyber Monday may lose some of its cache. To be sure, Cyber Monday hasnt always been the biggest online shopping day. In fact, up until three years ago, that title was historically held on the last day shoppers can order items with standard shipping rates and get them delivered before Christmas. That day usually falls in late December. Even though Cyber Monday is expected to be the biggest shopping day this year, industry watchers say it could just be a matter of time before other days take that ranking. Of all the benchmark spending days, Thanksgiving is growing at the fastest rate, up 128 percent over the last five years, said Andrew Lipsman, a spokesman with comScore.

Weird WIRE Card mailed during WWII arrives at NY homeELMIRA, N.Y. A postcard mailed nearly 70 years ago has finally arrived at the former upstate New York home of the couple who sent it. The postcard was sent July 4, 1943, from Rockford, Ill., to sisters Pauline and Theresa Leisenring in Elmira. Their brother, George Leisenring, was stationed at Rockfords Medical Center Barracks at Camp Grant, an Army post during World War II. Their parents were visiting him when they mailed the postcard home. The postcard reads in part, Dear Pauline and Theresa, We arrived safe, had a good trip, but we were good and tired. Elmiras Star-Gazette newspaper reported the postcard arrived last week at the familys former home, where a different family now lives. A postal official said the postcard may have been found by someone outside the postal service and placed in the mail. Two tons of pigeon droppings in churchSTOCKHOLM A hatch on a Swedish church tower inadvertently left open for some three decades resulted in 2 tons of pigeon droppings amassing in the tower. The churchs property manager said the layer of droppings was 12 inches deep when it was discovered during a May inspection of the Heliga Trefaldighets Kyrka in Gavle, 105 miles north of Stockholm. Lennart Helzenius said Thursday church staff had been shocked by the sheer number of bags of excrement cleaners were removing from the tower. He said the droppings filled 80 bags in the first round of cleaning, and then just as many in the second round. Helzenius said the hatch had probably been left open since the 1980s. Real estate agent stole for-sale signs BRIDGEPORT, Conn. A Connecticut real estate agent has been charged with stealing a competitors for sale signs from the front lawns of area homes. Police said 54-year-old Robert Toth, of Shelton, was charged Wednesday with third-degree larceny and firstdegree criminal trespass. Toth owns American Home Realty in Trumbull. Police said U.S. Asset Realty owner Jihad Shaheer complained in September that his signs had been stolen from more than a half-dozen sites in Bridgeport and from the front of two homes in Stratford. Police told the Connecticut Post they later determined Toth had been taking the signs. Toth had worked for Shaheer before opening his own real estate company. Toth declined to comment.Christmas tree shipment dumped in gardenVIENNA An early seasonal delivery went wrong in Austria when a truck was involved in a crash and dumped 14 tons of Christmas trees in a residents garden Friday.

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 Pitts column misses mark Leonard Pitts lecture to Republicans went far beyond his usual pompous audacity (GOPs biggest problem? Itself, Nov. 15). One wonders if Mr. Pitts would have been kindly disposed to a similar chastisement of Democrats by a Republican following Ronald Reagans landslide victory. Pitts cannot fail to mention racial prejudice in his columns. What he neglects to mention in this column are the numerous advertisements immediately after Romney was nominated. You remember Romney is a rich guy who cannot possibly have compassion for the rest of us! This should be named for what it is: Prejudice toward a minority. The message played well and may have garnered significant votes for Mr. Obama. Regarding race, one should remember, as the current Lincoln film illustrates, it was Republicans over and against the vast majority of Democrats who passed the 13th Amendment giving slaves all the rights and privileges of American citizenry. Doubtless, much soul searching is underway by the Republican Party and new approaches will be made in 2016. Meanwhile, America has lost a man of incredible skill who could have turned around a nation struggling economically. One can only pray Mr. Obama will be a wiser president in his second term. If not, thousands of our neighbors will continue to suffer and our nation will fall into even greater decline. Earle W. Pratt Lecanto Time to do what you were told If it wasnt so sad, it would be a great TV reality show. Congress that bastion of morality is pretending to be outraged at the behavior of two generals. The fact that by continuing to perpetuate this phony outrage they are humiliating the spouses and families of these two men doesnt seem to bother them at all. Do we need to investigate the Benghazi disaster? Of course we do. Do we need to give it priority over keeping America from going over the financial cliff into another recession or worse? I dont think so. Some continue to say the president is the one who wont work with Congress. The fact is, every time he tried to work with them, they said no. Someone once said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. I dont know how long you expect someone to beat their head against a brick wall before they realize it is futile, but I think the president gave it his best shot. Politicians always start their party talking points with the phrase, The American people want then go on to prove they havent a clue to what the people want. In this election, the American people told you what we want. Now we expect you to do it! Evlyn Skurow Crystal River I n the film Groundhog Day, Bill Murray wakes up each morning and relives the previous day. A similar scenario is playing out in the Middle East between Israel and her enemies. The deadly movie always goes like this: Israel is shelled or attacked by terrorists groups, often called militants by the media, each one with the same goal: Israels elimination. After demonstrating considerable restraint of the kind that would never be tolerated by any other nation, Israel fires back. Suddenly, the world awakens from its indifference. World leaders, who said little when Israeli civilians were wounded and killed, now urge restraint by both sides, as if a moral equivalency exists between victim and predator. In the run-up to confrontation, it has been reported Hamas placed weaponry among civilians, hoping when Israeli airstrikes started they could show photos of dead children, bringing condemnation on Israel. Whats more, according to Breitbart.com, Hamas has a well-established pattern of faking civilian deaths in Gaza, even as it seeks civilian deaths in Israel. American and foreign TV networks particularly CNN and BBC are then brought in to channel the Palestinian line, portraying Israel as the aggressor. Next comes the hand-wringing and suggestions Israel must do more to, as George W. Bush said in his 2002 Road Map for Peace speech, satisfy the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people. In the past when Israel has done more, such as releasing terrorists, or giving up land taken in war to buttress its security, Israels do more has brought it less: less security, less peace and less approval from a world that largely wishes it would disappear. The spineless United Nations urged all concerned to exercise maximum restraint, ignoring Israels considerable restraint while facing intolerable provocations. And so the process replays. Bernard Lewis, the renowned scholar and expert on the history of Islam, was recently aboard a post-election cruise sponsored by National Review magazine, as was I. Lewis noted the Cold War featured mutual assured destruction (MAD), which served as a deterrent for the United States and Soviet Union from using their nuclear weapons against each other. Lewis said for Islamic nations such as Iran (which sponsors Hamas in Gaza), MAD is not a deterrent, but an inducement. Thats because, he said, the Iranian regime believes in the apocalyptic end of days in which the 12th Imam the Islamic messiah will emerge in the midst of a nuclear war with Israel and save humanity with Islam the surviving religion. Lewis argues for regime change in Iran, but urges the West to be cautious in the way it goes about promoting it. Iran, he said, is a nation with a long and proud history. He believes the West must not give Iran a patriotic excuse it could use to ignite nationalist passions. Young Iranians hate their rulers, Lewis said, and the message from the West, which should be conveyed to them via social media, should affirm Irans ancient history and Persian roots. That history, he believes, can be used to overcome the religious fanatics now running the country. Lewis, who has seen a lot in his nearly 100 years, believes the Middle East will become less important over time. The decline of Arab and Islamic nations, he thinks, will continue as the world discovers new sources for fossil fuels and alternatives to oil, the primary product these countries supply to the world. As income from oil declines, Lewis believes increased migration, mostly to Europe, but also to the United States, risks changing Western cultures. That could mean that Islamic domination could be achieved through immigration, not war. In the meantime, Israel is faced with an existential threat, partially of its own making. I argued against the unilateral ceding of Gaza to the Palestinians. It didnt take a prophet to foresee terrorist groups using Gaza to launch attacks against Israeli civilians. If Israel invades Gaza again, there will be more pictures of dead civilians. But even if a ground effort is successful and Hamas is partially or entirely neutralized, that wont solve the problem. New terrorists will arrive. The cycle of war will repeat. Its a real-life Groundhog Day. Readers may email Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com.

The county commission finally agreed last Monday to award a contract to TransSystems to complete and produce a study on the feasibility of operating a port in northwest Citrus County. The study will cost $100,000, with half of the expense being covered by a grant from the state port authority. This could be the most hotly debated $50,000 expenditure in the history of county government. In fact, only $8,000 of actual local tax dollars are being used. The other funds came from the EDC, Workforce Development and the occupational license tax paid by businesses. For more than two years, the concept of creating a port in the northwest part of the county has been proposed and dissected. The port was proposed as a job-creation industrial effort in a county that saw its unemployment rate skyrocket to more than 14 percent during the current economic downturn. The theory behind the proposal is businesses interested in moving or receiving products in this part of the state would locate in the area around the Barge Canal or Progress Energy and create jobs. The feasibility study would be used to determine whether the proposal makes financial sense and whether the county should proceed. The barge canal was constructed by the federal government to create a cross-Florida transportation route, but was stopped for environmental concerns in the 1970s. Progress Energy also has a barge canal in the region that operates to deliver coal to the power plants. The feasibility study would look at the option of using and expanding the current facilities to serve other business interests. The idea of operating a port in Citrus County has generated a huge amount of criticism from residents who think the idea is dumb. They might be right. In our view, it is prudent to at least study the idea. Citrus County has a desperate need to broaden its economic base. Our decades of dependence on the homebuilding industry has led us to be one of the last counties in the United States to begin any signs of an economic recovery. The feasibility study will tell Citrus County if this is a place where new jobs can be created. As we understand it, local tax dollars are not going to be used to build and operate a port for the benefit of business. Instead, a port would be created through private investment and then funded through a standard tax on the goods that come and go from the facility. One private business has already purchased property in the region for the purpose of using a byproduct from the coal plants to build wall board. If there is not enough interest from private investors, and there are not enough goods that could be moved in and out of the port, the idea will sink like a constitutional amendment on Election Day. Government does have a role to play in job creation. In our view, that is what Citrus County is doing in studying this idea. While $50,000 is a lot of money by anyones standards, it is a good investment to answer the question about the possibility of creating a facility that would bring more jobs to our community. Improving our economy is the most important item on the public agenda. That does not happen unless leaders in government actually do something.

Thank you from Rosie (Red Dog) Joshuas House for Golden Retriever Rescue would like to thank everyone who contributed to the care of Rosie. Rosie was hit by a car in Crystal River, picked up by Animal Control and taken to Midway Animal Hospital for evaluation. Our president, Ellen Pavlik, who works at Midway, looked into Rosies eyes and decided she was not a golden, but deserved a chance. Ellen contacted the Board of Joshuas House and all agreed we needed to help this little girl and contribute to her care. Rosies injuries were greater than first determined, and we were struggling with the bills. Ellen and John Pavlik and many board members contributed privately, but we were rapidly falling behind. Thanks to the Chronicle and an article by Eryn Worthington, you, the public, became involved. With your help and contributions, we were able to pay all of Rosies bills. Rosie is doing well; she attended our Golden Retriever Rescue Reunion in October and became the star of the day. We are all so grateful for your assistance. We read about so much anger and so many hurtful things going on in the world today; it is wonderful to know we are living in a community that has so much heart. You have given an injured stray dog a second chance at life. That is what rescue is all about. Kay Krieger recording secretary for Joshuas House for Golden Retriever Rescue Beverly Hills Pet idol contest a success Friends of Citrus County Animal Services would like to thank everyone who participated in our second annual Pet Idol Contest this year to decide the 12 pets that will be highlighted in our 2013 Year of Saved Lives FOCCAS Calendar. We are delighted by the growth in submissions this year, and the outcome will be a beautiful calendar of beloved cats and dogs! The pet with the highest number of votes will also grace the front cover. Calendars will be on sale on Saturday, Dec. 1, at the fourth annual K-9 Karnival in Liberty Park, Inverness sponsored by the Greater Inverness Olde Towne Association. The price of the calendar will be $10. Calendars can be preordered by visiting our website at www. FriendsofCCAS.org or calling us at 352-201-8664. Proceeds from the calendar sales will go toward helping animals in need of homes at our shelter in a multitude of ways. We fund extraordinary medical expenses for animals that would otherwise be virtually impossible to find homes for due to their medical condition (what adopter expects to outlay more than the cost of the adoption fee when coming to our shelter?). The 2013 calendar has pictures of just some of the lives your contributions from last years calendar have assisted. We fund transport and adoption expenses associated with transferring dogs to qualified rescue programs. We assist the shelter in funding projects and essentials that may be outside the realm of their allocated budget. We would like to thank the following sponsors, many of whom support our mission every day of the year: The Citrus County Chronicle Countryside Animal Hospital, TLC Animal Hospital, Midway Animal Hospital, The Ice Cream Dr., Bow Wow Boutique, Skoors Natural Market, Inverness Yoga & Wellness, Ritzy Rags & Glitzy Jewels, Deco Caf, Nature Coast Tees/ Graphic Elite Printing, Bark Central Dog Park, Lorraine Clark Pet Portraits, ValuePet Supplies.com/Casita Big Dog Rescue and Jackie Devine Designs.

Letter to THE EDITOR Lets work toward solutionsMr. (Robert) Hagamans column (of Nov. 18) was obviously well constructed, but it comes across as just another lament of a sore loser. Mitt also has whined and made excuses since then as well. I suggest we get over it and start being a part of the solution instead of perpetuating the divisiveness. As a lifelong Republican myself, I am embarrassed the best the party could come up with was Mitt Romney, but that is irrelevant now. And yes, I do blame Bush for two unwinnable wars costing trillions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives. You call it sad? I call it one of the worst decisions in American history. I blame myself as well, because I voted for him. I see many references to Republicans and Democrats. I saw no reference to the American people. This type of political partisanship is part of the problem we have, perhaps the biggest. Its a very short walk across the aisle, sir. I know of no moats between them. Arent we all Americans first and foremost? The major problem isnt a reluctance to push harder for our conservative values, Mr. Hagaman. But one of the problems is some cant get over the fact that America chose its leader and not your leader. You go on to say we shouldnt believe anything the president says because he demeans the wealthy while he is one of them. Didnt Mitt demean the 47 percent he said he wasnt worried about? He gets away with it because hes not one of them? His arrogance is demeaning to all Americans. What about those who collect Social Security? And how about those (who) collect a government pension, be it military or otherwise? If so, they are part of the 47 percent. Every American is or will be in some way part of the 47 percent. You also say he let Middle East governments be replaced by Americanhating governments. That, sir, is a ridiculous statement. What could anyone have done to stop it? Get into five or six new wars? Mr. Hagaman, Ive read your letters for years and agreed with you for the most part in the past. But your column does nothing but ambiguously blame the president for everything from grocery prices to the beliefs of the evangelicals. It is time to stop the blame and become part of the solution. The last thing America needs is half the country pointing at someone and blaming them for our problems. We need to come together as a nation to solve this. We know what the problems are. We need answers and we need solutions. Not just 1 percent or 2 percent of us, or even 47 percent of us. All of us. Mark Stoltz Inverness

Associated Press Bangladeshi firefighters, above and below, battle a fire Saturday night at a garment factory in the Savar neighborhood in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Associated PressSEATTLE Travelers heading home after the long Thanksgiving weekend had yet another reason to be thankful Sunday: favorable weather and few airport delays reported on what is traditionally the busiest travel day of the year. Although there was little elbow room on packed buses, trains and airplanes, travel appeared to be running smoothly as millions of people trekked home after feasting with family and friends. Experts predicted a slight rise in the number of people traveling this Thanksgiving weekend compared to last year. According to AAAs yearly analysis, some 43.6 million Americans were expected to journey 50 miles or more between Wednesday and Sunday, and more of them were likely to be driving while fewer were flying. Mauro Scappa and his wife, Chris, and their two children were among those who chose not to take to the skies. They braced themselves for delays as they waited at New Yorks Penn Station for a train back to Washington, near their home in Falls Church, Va. But their train was expected on time Sunday morning. We definitely wanted to avoid the airport on Thanksgiving weekend, for sure, Scappa said. Renee Kerns, her husband Mike and their two children left about 30 minutes earlier than usual to catch a flight to home to California. They anticipated longer lines at the Washington-area Dulles International Airport, but sailed through security in 10 minutes and were at their gate for their 8:30 a.m. flight to Oakland, Calif., more than an hour before their flight. It was fine, Renee Kerns said of getting through security. Added her husband: Easy, but were early. Associated Press Travelers rest Thursday in a waiting area in the domestic terminal of San Francisco International Airport in California. Battle Syrian rebels capture air baseBEIRUT Syrian rebels captured a helicopter base just outside Damascus Sunday in what an activist called a blow to the morale of the regime near President Bashar Assads seat of power. The takeover claim showed how rebels are advancing in the area of the capital, though they are badly outgunned, making inroads where Assads power was once unchallenged. Rebels have also been able to fire mortar rounds into Damascus recently. The director of the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami AbdulRahman, said rebels seized control of the Marj al-Sultan base on the outskirts of Damascus on Sunday morning. He said at least 15 rebels and eight soldiers were killed in the fighting that started a day earlier. The rebels later withdrew from the base. Suicide blasts at Nigeria base kill 11 KADUNA, Nigeria Twin suicide car bombs exploded Sunday at a church inside one of Nigerias top military bases, killing at least 11 people and wounding another 30 in an embarrassing attack, showing the continued insecurity that haunts Africas most populous nation. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, but suspicion immediately fell on the radical Islamist sect known as Boko Haram, whose suicide bombers target Sunday worship services in what has become a weekly macabre routine in Nigeria. This attack in Jaji on Sunday, however, happened inside a barracks home to the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, one of the countrys most important military colleges. It also showed a new dangerous sophistication as the second explosion appeared timed to target responders rushing to aid the wounded 10 minutes after the first blast, officials said.Congo and M23 rebels negotiateKAMPALA, Uganda Congolese officials are in talks Sunday with representatives of M23, the rebel group that last week took control of the eastern Congo city of Goma, according to Ugandan officials. Ugandan Defence Minister Crispus Kiyonga said he is mediating discussions to help both sides reach a settlement that would end a violent rebellion that has sucked in Uganda and Rwanda.

The standoff poses one of the hardest tests for the nations liberal and secular opposition since Hosni Mubaraks ouster nearly two years ago. Failure to sustain protests and eventually force Mohammed Morsi to loosen control could consign it to longterm irrelevance. Clashes between the two sides spilled onto the streets for a third day since the president issued edicts making him immune to oversight of any kind, including from the courts. A teenager was killed and at least 40 people were wounded when a group of anti-Morsi protesters tried to storm the local offices of the political arm of the presidents Muslim Brotherhood in the Nile Delta city of Damanhoor, according to security officials. It was the first reported death from the street battles that erupted across much of the nation Friday, the day after Morsis decrees were announced. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media, identified the boy as 15-year-old Islam Hamdi Abdel-Maqsood. Tensions also dealt a fresh blow to the economy, which has suffered due to the problems plaguing the Arab worlds most populous nation since Mubaraks ouster. Egypts benchmark EGX30 stock index dropped 9.59 percentage points Sunday in the first trading session since Morsi issued his decrees. The losses were among the biggest since the turbulent days and weeks immediately after Mubaraks ouster in a popular uprising last year. The loss in the value of shares was estimated at close to $5 billion. The judiciary, the main target of the edicts, has pushed back, calling the decrees a power grab and an assault on the branchs independence. Judges and prosecutors stayed away from many courts in Cairo and other cities Sunday. Associated PressDHAKA, Bangladesh Fire raced through a garment factory that supplies major retailers in the West, killing at least 112 people, many of whom were trapped by the flames because the eight-story building lacked emergency exits, an official said Sunday. The blaze broke out late Saturday at a factory operated outside Bangladeshs capital of Dhaka by Tazreen Fashions Ltd., a subsidiary of the Tuba Group, which makes products for Walmart and other companies in the U.S. and Europe. Firefighters recovered at least 100 bodies from the factory, Maj. Mohammad Mahbub, fire department operations director, told The Associated Press. He said 12 other people who were injured after they jumped from the building to escape died at hospitals. Local media reported up to 124 people were killed. The cause of the blaze was not immediately clear, and authorities ordered an investigation. Army soldiers and border guards were sent to help police keep order as thousands of onlookers and anxious relatives of the factory workers gathered, Mahbub said. Tazreen was given a high risk safety rating after a May 16, 2011, audit conducted by an ethical sourcing assessor for Walmart, according to a document posted on the Tuba Groups website. It did not specify what led to the rating. Walmart spokesman Kevin Gardner said online documents indicating an orange or high risk assessment after the May 2011 inspection and a yellow or medium risk report after an inspection in August 2011 appeared to pertain to the factory where the fire broke out. The August 2011 letter said Walmart would conduct another inspection within one year. Gardner said it was not clear if the inspection had been conducted or whether the factory was still making products for Walmart. If a factory is rated orange three times in a two-year period, Walmart wont place any orders for one year. The May 2011 report was the first orange rating for the factory. Neither Tazreens owner nor Tuba Group officials could be reached for comment. The Tuba Group is a major Bangladeshi garment exporter whose clients also include Carrefour and IKEA, according to its website. Its factories export garments to the U.S., Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands, among other countries.

During a news conference, Yow said she met with OBrien Friday to discuss the future of the program, then notified him of her decision Sunday. I told them its really fairly simple, Yow said. Coach OBrien and I agree on the goal of becoming a top-25 program. We just dont agree on what it takes to do that, how to get there. OBrien went 40-35 in Raleigh. He took the Wolfpack to three bowl games, but wont coach in a fourth when N.C. State receives its bid next week. Yow said OBriens buyout would be $1.2 million over four years. N.C.

The day was supposed to be a duel between McIlroy and Donald, who were tied for the lead after the third round. The Englishman grabbed an early two-shot lead when McIlroy bogeyed the first and Donald birdied the second. With help from Donald, McIlroy claims Dubai B RENT K ALLESTAD Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A year after calling his team soft following an embarrassing home loss to Florida State, Florida coach Will Muschamp watched many of those same players rip the Seminoles 37-26 Saturday. They clinched one of the best regular seasons in school history with a win more convincing than the final 11-point victory margin. Our guys just continued to press forward, Muschamp said. We dont do excuses. We did enough of that last year. And there was no talk of being soft. Were a physical football team, Muschamp said. Thats what we pride ourselves on. The Gators impressed Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner, who was one of the few Seminoles to give Florida trouble. The way they were double-teaming Ive never seen it before, said Werner, who had 3 1/2 sacks in the game. Give credit to them. Florida (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) moved up a notch to No. 5 in The Associated Press poll with its win in Tallahassee and now awaits its bowl invitation a bit wistfully. The Gators know that only a 17-9 loss to Georgia a month ago prevents them from playing Alabama in this Saturdays SEC title game, where the winner will likely be Notre Dames opponent in the BCS national championship game Jan. 7. Muschamp and the Gators could be headed to New Orleans for a Sugar Bowl date. Meanwhile, No. 13 Florida State (10-2, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) must get ready to play Gators complete turnaround with romp at FSU Ryan teamed with Julio Jones on an 80-yard TD midway through the third quarter, but the NFC South leaders found themselves trailing 23-17 after the Bucs marched for a touchdown, then forced a fumble by Ryan to set up a field goal that put the Falcons in catchup mode with 10 minutes to go. Michael Turners 3yard TD run put Atlanta ahead for good with 7:55 left. Connor Barth missed a 56-yard goal for Tampa Bay (6-5) in the closing minutes, and the Bucs four-game winning streak ended when Josh Freemans desperation pass fell Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy dives on a fumble by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan during the fourth quarter.

Manning hit tight end Jacob Tamme late in the first half and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in the third quarter, and that was more than enough to overcome three field goals by the Chiefs Ryan Succop as Kansas City lost its eighth straight game. Knowshon Moreno added 85 yards rushing for the AFC West-leading Broncos (8-3). Moreno got the start in place of the injured Willis McGahee. Jamaal Charles ran for 107 yards for the Chiefs (1-10), who failed again to punch the ball into the end zone. They still havent scored a touchdown since the first quarter against Pittsburgh on Nov. 12.Bears 28, Vikings 10CHICAGO Jay Cutler threw for 188 yards and a touchdown as Chicago ended a two-game losing streak. Tied with Green Bay for the NFC North lead and just a game ahead of Minnesota (6-5) coming in, the Bears (8-3) grabbed a 25-3 halftime lead thanks to Cutlers pinpoint passing. The defense held Adrian Peterson in check early on, although he finished with 108 yards rushing. The win could prove costly. The Bears lost wide receiver Devin Hester (concussion), running back Matt Forte (ankle), cornerback Charles Tillman (ankle) and both starting guards to injuries. Colts 20, Bills 13 INDIANAPOLIS T.Y. Hilton scored on a 75-yard punt return and caught an 8yard TD pass from Andrew Luck. Hilton is the first player in franchise history to score by punt return and pass reception in the same game. Indy improved to 7-4. Luck was 20 of 37 for 240 yards with a TD and an interception. Jaguars 24, Titans 19JACKSONVILLE Chad Henne threw two touchdown passes, sparking the NFLs worst offense for the second consecutive week. The Jaguars (2-9) snapped a sevengame losing streak. Henne, making his first start in more than 13 months, found Cecil Shorts III on a 59-yard touchdown play in the third quarter and hooked up with rookie Justin Blackmon for a 7-yard score in the fourth. The Titans (4-7) cut the lead to 21-19 on Jake Lockers 6-yard pass to Kenny Britt with 4:52 remaining and had the ball with a chance to take the lead. But Russell Allen tipped Lockers pass over the middle, and Dwight Lowery back on the field after a five-week absence had his first interception of the season. Dolphins 24, Seahawks 21 MIAMI Dan Carpenter kicked a 43yard field goal on the final, and Miami scored 17 points in the last 8:08. Rookie Ryan Tannehill drove Miami 65 yards in the final 92 seconds to set up the winning kick. He finished 18 for 26 for 253 yards and a score. Miami (5-6) broke a three-game losing streak. The Seahawks (6-5), who are unbeaten at home this year, lost for the fifth time in six road games. Bengals 34, Raiders 10 CINCINNATI Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes and Cincinnati showed its former quarterback it has moved on. BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 129 yards and a touchdown. Palmer had a tough time all-around in his return to Cincinnati, going 19 of 34 for 146 yards with four sacks and an interception. With their third straight win, the Bengals (6-5) moved back into the playoff chase. Oakland (3-8) lost its fourth in a row.49ers 31, Saints 21 NEW ORLEANS Ahmad Brooks and Donte Whitner returned interceptions for touchdowns, the 49ers sacked Drew Brees five times, and San Francisco ended the New Orleans Saints threegame winning streak. Colin Kaepernick was solid in his second career start. Kaepernick passed for 231 yards, including a touchdown. He also ran for a 7-yard score. New Orleans (5-6) managed only 59 yards rushing against the 49ers (8-2-1). Rams 31, Cardinals 17GLENDALE, Ariz. Janoris Jenkins became the first player in Rams history and the first NFL rookie since 1960 to return two interceptions for touchdowns in the same game and St. Louis dominated the second half to hand the Arizona Cardinals their seventh loss in a row. Sam Bradford had a pair of 37-yard touchdown passes for the Rams (4-6-1), who snapped a five-game winless streak. Ravens 16, Chargers 13 (OT)SAN DIEGO Justin Tucker kicked a 38-yard field with 1:07 left in overtime to complete a stunning comeback for the Baltimore Ravens, who beat the staggering San Diego Chargers. San Diego (4-7) led 13-3 with 7:51 to go in regulation and seemed headed for a win, but the Ravens converted on fourthand-29 when Ray Rice caught a short pass from Joe Flacco and weaved through the defense with 1:37 to play. Six plays later, Tucker kicked a 38-yard field goal to tie the game as regulation expired. The Ravens (9-2) won their fourth straight and for the eighth time in nine games. The Chargers (4-7) were pushed closer to being eliminated from the playoff picture. Asssociated Press Cleveland Browns linebacker DQwell Jackson (52) and cornerback Joe Haden break up a pass to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace on Sunday in the fourth quarter in Cleveland. The tipped ball was recovered by Browns defensive tackle Billy Winn. Associated PressCLEVELAND They didnt look like themselves at all. Not with the turnovers, penalties and blown chances. These werent the Pittsburgh Steelers of old. And it had little to do with their 37-year-old quarterback. That was an ugly performance, coach Mike Tomlin said. With their playoff lives in peril, the Steelers committed eight turnovers and third-string QB Charlie Batch didnt do enough to overcome the miscues as Pittsburgh lost 20-14 to Cleveland on Sunday, giving the Browns a rare win over their hated rivals. When you turn the ball over the way we did, youre not going to beat anybody, Tomlin said. We were highly penalized. When you do those things, youre going to lose I dont care who is playing quarterback. Batch, forced to start because of injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, threw three interceptions and the Steelers (6-5) lost five fumbles, the last on a desperation final-play lateral as they fell to the Browns (3-8) for just the second time in 18 games. Batch finished 20 of 34 for 199 yards, but couldnt rally the stumbling Steelersthe way Big Ben can. I have to put it on my shoulders, Batch said. We had a chance to win, actually two, and I turned it over. Cant do that. I made some bad throws. We had all the fumbles, and yet we still had a chance to win, thats the crazy part. Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden sustained a concussion in the final minutes, allowing backup Colt McCoy to come in and finish off a victory Cleveland fans will savor long after this season ends. Coach Pat Shurmur said the 29-year-old Weeden was being treated for the head injury, which happened when he hit his head while throwing an incompletion. Browns rookie Trent Richardson rushed for 85 yards, scoring the goahead TD on a 15-yard run in the third. For one of the few times in recent years, Cleveland finally won a close game. And this one pleased new owner Jimmy Haslam, who had a minority share of the Steelers before buying the Browns for $1.05 billion in August. Haslam enjoyed not seeing Terrible Towels waving after the game. Ive seen it the other way around, Haslam said. Its good to see their fans leaving and our fans staying and cheering. It was a great win for us. Its nice for me, but its bigger for our coaches and our players. It also sent president Mike Holmgren out on a winning note. After the game, the Browns announced that it was the final game for Holmgren, who has been replaced by new CEO Joe Banner. NFL CAPSULES Browns beat sloppy Steelers, but lose QB Weeden to concussion incomplete in the end zone with no time remaining. The win enabled the Falcons (10-1) to keep pace with Houston for the NFL s best record. Doug Martin scored on a pair of 1-yard run for the Bucs, however the rookie who began the day leading the NFL in total yards from scrimmage was limited to 50 yards rushing on 21 carries. Barth kicked field goals of 22, 42, and 48 yards, the latter giving the Bucs their six-point lead after cornerback E.J. Biggers sacked Ryan to force a fumble. Ryan threw a second-quarter interception his sixth pick in two weeks that led to Barths field goal that made it 10-10 at the half. Ryan completed 26 of 32 passes, including four straight on the drive that Turner finished with his TD run. Jacquizz Rodgers had a 5-yard TD run in the first quarter, and Jones finished with six receptions for 147 yards despite playing on a sore right ankle that limited him in practice. Ryan started the game with 10 straight completions before Ronde Barbers interception and 28-yard return to the Atlanta 31 led to Barths first field goal. The Falcons drove to the Tampa Bay 4 in the closing seconds of the half, but wasted an opportunity to regain the lead when Matt Bryant hooked a 22-yard field-goal attempt wide left as time expired. The Atlanta kicker missed a 48-yarder with 8 seconds left, giving the Bucs one more chance to pull out what would have been their first signature victory under firstyear coach Greg Schiano. Atlanta struck quickly after Barths second field goal put Tampa Bay up 13-10. Ryan found Jones racing up the right sideline, and the receiver broke free from cornerback Leonard Johnson to continue into the end zone. The Bucs regained the lead when Martin scored his second TD on the first play of the fourth quarter. Freeman finished 19 of 30 for 256 yards. Vincent Jackson had five catches for 96 yards. Atlanta converted six of eight first downs and outgained the Bucs 239 yards to 105 in the opening half, yet it was 10-10 at the break because the Falcons settled for a field goal after holding the ball for more than seven minutes of its first scoring drive.

San Jose St.28118.041027105.071221.1800.0974NR Associated PressNEW YORK Two years before the playoffs start in college football, the Southeastern Conference is staging a semifinal to determine who plays Notre Dame in the BCS title game. Alabama (.9236) was second and Georgia (.8911) third in the BCS standings released Sunday. The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs play Saturday in Atlanta for the SEC championship. The winner will advance to the national championship game in Miami on Jan. 7 against the Fighting Irish (.9979), who locked up their spot Saturday with a 22-13 victory against Southern California. If you think about what the game means, this that and the other, it doesnt really help you win the game, Georgia coach Mark Richt said. The only thing that helps you win the game is preparation and getting your mind ready to go to battle. Thats what youve got to do. Florida (.8882) is fourth in the standings, but with no games left, looks stuck behind their SEC rivals. The Bowl Championship Series is in its second-to-last season. It will be replaced by a four-team playoff in 2014. While the race for the BCS title game is now fairly straightforward heading into championship weekend in college football, theres some intrigue to watch for involving potential BCS busters. Kent State is 17th in the standings and Northern Illinois is 21st. Theyll meet in the Mid-American Conference championship game on Friday night in Detroit. Because it is almost a certainty that the Big East champion Louisville and Rutgers will determine who that is on Thursday night in New Jersey will be ranked behind the MAC champion in the final BCS standings, if either Kent State or NIU can get into the top 16, they would receive an automatic BCS bid. The MAC has never sent a team to the BCS. Neither Louisville nor Rutgers is in the BCS top 25 this week. Boise State from the Mountain West is 20th in the standings and also still in the mix for that BCS buster bid if it can jump ahead of the MAC teams and into the first 16. The Broncos play Nevada on Saturday to earn a share of the MW title. Oregon is fifth in the latest standings, and like Florida, done with its regular season and in good shape to receive an at-large BCS bid. SEC set to play host to BCS semifinal Associated PressNotre Dame is No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 with nothing left to do but wait to find out its opponent for the national championship game. Toward the bottom of the rankings, there was plenty of movement. Ten Top 25 teams lost this weekend, the most since Oct. 11, 2003, but for the most part the national championship race was unchanged. No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia, both easy winners in rivalry games Saturday, held their spots in the rankings. They will play for the SEC title in Atlanta next weekend. The winner is pretty much a lock to move on to Miami for the BCS championship game on Jan. 7, trying to extend the Southeastern Conferences string of six straight titles. But will the right SEC team be getting a shot? Florida coach Will Muschamp doesnt think so. We should be playing for the national championship, he said after the Gators beat Florida State 37-26 in Tallahassee, Fla., on Saturday. Hes got a point. The Gators (11-1) checked in at No. 4 in the AP poll this week, up one spot. Their lone loss was to Georgia and it was enough to settle the SEC East in the Bulldogs favor. But playing in the same division doesnt mean playing the same competition. Not even close in these days of expanding conferences. The Gators have clearly played a tougher schedule than the Bulldogs. The Sagarin computer ratings have Floridas strength of schedule at 13th in the nation. Georgias is 42nd. Alabamas is 39th, by the way, but lets keep the focus on Florida and Georgia because they played each other. Florida also played No. 9 LSU and No. 10 Texas A&M as its two SEC West opponents, combined record 204. Georgia played Auburn and Mississippi from the west, combined record 9-15. On Saturday, both Florida and Georgia played their toughest nonconference games. The Gators beat Florida State (10-2). The Bulldogs routed Georgia Tech (6-6). Both teams played No. 11 South Carolina, the Easts other beast. Florida beat the Gamecocks 44-11. South Carolina beat Georgia 35-7. Remember it was Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier who suggested in the preseason that only division records determine division winners after South Carolina was in similar position to Florida last year. Of course, the Bulldogs can point to the scoreboard, the one that read Georgia 17, Florida 9 in Jacksonville, Fla., back on Oct. 27. But its a strange situation and one that will repeat itself around the country as conferences grow and college football implements a four-team playoff in a couple of years. Georgia and Florida had a race. The Bulldogs won, but the Gators had to cover more ground.

Giants at Washington, 8:30 p.m. Against Eagles, Panthers look good Associated PressPHILADELPHIA With a rookie quarterback and a running back making his first start since high school, the Philadelphia Eagles will try for their first win in two months. No wonder even the Carolina Panthers (2-8) are favored on the road. The struggling Eagles (37) have lost six straight games entering Monday nights matchup against Cam Newton and the Panthers. They wont have Michael Vick or LeSean McCoy because of concussions, increasing the chances they can go 0 for October and November for the first time in coach Andy Reids 14-year tenure. Oddsmakers have listed the Panthers as 3-point favorites, a rare occurrence for a team with the worst record in the conference. Perhaps the underdog role will get the Eagles going. Nothing else has worked in a season that began with Super Bowl expectations. Obviously nobody wants to play the way weve been playing, nobody wants to coach the way weve been coaching, Reid said. We dont want that. We owe it to each other, we owe it to this city to play better. As long as guys own up to that, coaches and players, thats the way you get better and then you work on the things that youre not doing well. Get yourself right. Nick Foles will be under center, making his second start in a row for Vick. Bryce Brown, a seventhround pick who had just 104 carries in college, takes over for McCoy. I expect the other guys to step up and play, Reid said. Its a great opportunity for them. Thats the way you approach it and you cut it loose and you play. Foles, a third-round pick, has a chance to show whether he can be Philadelphias quarterback of the future. Vick could be part of a massive offseason overhaul and fans have been calling for Foles to start since his impressive preseason. Foles has been so-so in the past two games, compiling a passer rating of just 58.9. Like Vick, hes had the misfortune of playing behind a banged-up offensive line. I have to play within myself and understand whats coming at me, and make the best decision, Foles said. This is my second start and the third game Ive played in. Hopefully as things go on, it starts slowing down. Ive felt more comfortable this week at practice, so its just trusting myself in the game and getting into a rhythm. The Panthers prepared all week for Vick and Foles. They learned that Vick would be out after their final practice but before their Sunday walkthrough. I think Nick Foles is athletic enough to give you some problems, Carolina coach Ron Rivera said. While the Eagles are banged-up, the Panthers are close to full strength. They have no significant injuries, but are switching things up on the offensive line. Gary Williams, signed on Nov. 14, will start at right guard over Jeff Byers. Carolina also has a new kicker, Graham Gano. If this game comes down to a kick at the end, Gano thrives in those situations. He tied an NFL record with three overtime field goals for the Washington Redskins in 2010. Thats what every kicker dreams of. If you dont want that pressure, something is wrong with you, Gano said. I love those situations. I hope every game comes down to that. This will be a coaching reunion of sorts for Reid, Rivera and Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. Rivera was Philadelphias linebackers coach under Reid from 1999-2003. McDermott spent 10 seasons with the Eagles, including his final two as the defensive coordinator in 2009-10. Smart. Good person. Good people skills. Good football coach, Reid said of Rivera. At that time, he knew the linebacker position well and did a good job for us here. McDermott had big shoes to fill in Philadelphia. He replaced Jim Johnson, a defensive guru who passed away in July 2009. The transition didnt go too smoothly and McDermott was fired after two seasons. It was great for him to get another opportunity, and hes doing a nice job, Reid said. Associated Press Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles walks across the field during the second half Nov. 18 in Landover, Md. Associated PressATLANTA Jimbo Fisher said Sunday the team that wins the ACC championship may be the one that does the best job of moving past a crushing loss to its top in-state rival. Florida State dropped three spots to No. 13 in Sundays Associated Press Top 25 following a 37-26 loss to Florida. Fishers Seminoles (10-2) play Georgia Tech, which must regroup following a lopsided 42-10 loss to Georgia, in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship on Saturday. The winner will play in the Orange Bowl. Even with so much on the line, its not easy to quickly recover from a loss in a state rivalry game. I dont think theres any doubt, Fisher said. They had a great rivalry game and we did too. Youve got to be able to put it behind you quickly and go on. I think that is going to be a big factor, I dont think theres any doubt. Its an unlikely matchup. Georgia Tech is only 6-6 overall but won the Coastal Division with a 5-3 ACC record as Miami self-imposed a bowl ban for the second straight year as it hopes to lessen possible penalties from an ongoing NCAA investigation. Miami, also 5-3 in the ACC, would have won a tiebreaker with Georgia Tech for the Coastal Division title if not for the self-imposed ban. Fisher said the Seminoles will be without one of their top defensive players, senior defensive end Cornellius Tank Carradine, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against Florida. Hes sad. Hes down, Fisher said. He cant be with his teammates. Fisher said he hasnt decided on a new starter. Options include freshmen Giorgio Newberry and Mario Edwards. Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson has lost four straight games to Georgia after beating the Bulldogs in his first season. The Yellow Jackets, who have struggled on defense all season, have had to bounce back from other ugly losses this season, including a 49-28 loss to Middle Tennessee State which cost defensive coordinator Al Groh his job. Johnson said his defense may have hit a new low against Georgia. You never know. You hope that well bounce back, Johnson said Sunday. Weve got another great opportunity. Im sure Florida State is fighting some of the same thing today following their game against Florida. Its unfortunate it happened like that, but well do the best we can to move on. In ACC title game, a battle of bested rivals

We have to put this (Florida loss) behind us, said Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, who lost to a Florida school for the first time as a head coach. Fisher is 3-0 against Miami, 1-0 against South Florida and now 2-1 in the Florida rivalry. They controlled the line of scrimmage. ... They made more plays than us, Fisher said. We have to move on and get better. And whereas it had been Florida State with much of the preseason attention after wins over Florida and Notre Dame to finish the 2011 season, Florida stealthily climbed the polls with road wins at Texas A&M, Tennessee and Vanderbilt along with home victories over LSU and South Carolina. While the Gators were pulling out close victories against a difficult schedule, Florida State was putting up big numbers on both sides of the ball against the likes of Savannah State, Murray State and a group of mediocre ACC opponents. The Seminoles went into Saturdays game with just one victory over a ranked team, Clemson, and only two over schools with winning records. And Florida made them pay. GATORSContinued from Page B1 But then Donald threeputted the third to end a streak of 102 holes on the Earth Course without a bogey to give McIlroy a chance. He then had another bogey on No. 12 to fall three back and never challenged after that, missing the green on the 17th to end his chances. In the meantime, Rose was climbing up the leaderboard. The Englishman pulled within one of McIlroy with a birdie and then moved ahead with an eagle on No. 14 after his approach shot rolled to within 10 feet. He sank it for his first lead of the tournament and doubled his advantage when McIlroy three-putted on the 13th. Rose had another birdie before his 60-foot eagle putt came within inches of the cup on No. 18, and he settled for birdie. Then, he had to wait. I thought it was going to be good, to be honest, Rose said. I caught a glimpse of the board walking to the 18th tee. I saw Rory had gone birdie, birdie, and hes putting the squeeze on. But I knew that is what Rory does. At No. 17, McIlroy hit what was probably the shot of his tournament, landing a 5-iron within a few feet of the pin. You could easily be a lot right into the bunker and leave yourself a tricky upand-down, he said. I committed to it and hit a great shot and followed it with a great putt for birdie to give myself that cushion going into the last. GOLF Continued from Page B1 Associated PressSAO PAULO Sebastian Vettel overcame a first-lap crash to capture his third straight Formula One championship title Sunday, finishing sixth in a Brazilian Grand Prix filled with crashes and won by Jenson Button under pouring rain. Vettel became the youngest three-time champion in Formula One at age 25. Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, F1s most successful driver, finished seventh in his final race after 19 seasons. Vettel appeared in big trouble after he was bumped into shortly after the first lap and spun. The German dropped to last place before he could turn his car around and start a difficult pursuit. But he steadily worked his way up the field and did what he had to holding off Ferraris Fernando Alonso, the only other driver contending for the title. Alonso had a superb start on a hectic first lap at Interlagos and finished second, but that wasnt enough to erase Vettels 13-point lead in the standings. Alonsos Ferrari teammate Felipe Massa was third in front of his home crowd, and cried on the podium after finishing a difficult season on a high note. Lewis Hamilton was leading in his final race with McLaren when Nico Hulkenberg crashed into him while trying to pass on a slippery track with 17 laps to go. The race was dramatic from the start but had an anticlimactic finish behind the safety car after Paul Di Resta crashed just before the final lap. Vettel wins third straight F1 title Associated Pres New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks attempts to catch a pass in the end zone Sunday during the second half in East Rutherford, N.J. Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes in the game and The Giants beat the Packers 38-10. Giants clobber Packers Sports BRIEFS Amateur Jake Higginbottom wins New Zealand Open CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand Australian teenager Jake Higginbottom became the first amateur to win the New Zealand Open since Harry Berwick in 1956, closing with a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory Sunday. The 19-year-old Higginbottom also become the second amateur winner in the last three Australasian Tour events. Fellow Australian teen Oliver Goss won the Western Australia Open on Oct. 28 at Royal Perth, beating Brady Watt also an amateur on the fifth hole of a playoff. Higginbottom finished at 7-under 281 on the Clearwater course. Australias Jason Norris and Peter Wilson tied for second. Norris shot a 66, and Wilson had a 68. After making four birdies in a five-hole stretch to take the lead, Higginbottom bogeyed the par-3 16th to fall in a tie with Wilson and Norris. The amateur birdied the par-4 17th to reclaim the lead and closed with a two-putt par on the difficult par-4 18th. Argonauts beat Stampeders 35-22 to win Grey CupTORONTO Chad Owens, Pacino Horne and Dontrelle Inman scored in the first half and the Toronto Argonauts beat the Calgary Stampeders 35-22 on Sunday in the 100th Grey Cup. Andre Durie added a touchdown in the second half for the Argonauts, who built a 24-6 halftime lead and never trailed while playing in front of a loud home crowd of 53,208 at Rogers Centre. Toronto earned its 16th Grey Cup title and first since 2004. The Argonauts got off to a fast start behind Owens, who had a 5-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. The score came after Jon Cornish fumbled an exchange with quarterback Kevin Glenn to give Toronto the ball on the Stampeders 45. Toronto put the game away a 7-yard TD pass by Ricky Ray to Durie with 5:22 left in the game. Ray, obtained last December in a blockbuster trade with Edmonton, was 18 for 30 for 231 yards.

B ASKETBALLC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, N OVEMBER26, 2012 B5 Nelson scored on a driving layup to trim it to three and the Magic got the ball back after Rondo came up with air on a 21-footer as the shot clock wound down. But Nelson fired up an off balance 3 on Orlandos ensuing touch, and following a foul, Garnett connected 1 of 2 free throws on the other end to make it 114-110 to lock up the victory. It was a disappointing finish for what was a masterful second half by Nelson in which he carried the Magic nearly singlehandedly with 17 points in the final two quarters and overtime. Nelson scored the Magics final eight points of the third quarter, including a fade away jumper to end the period to give the Magic a two-point edge entering the fourth. The lead grew as big as seven on a 3-pointer by Arron Afflalo with just over eight minutes remaining. The Celtics werent deterred, though, and immediately went in a 10-2 run to take the lead back at 98-97. Redick tied it again at 100 with a 3-pointer, but couldnt connect on a lob to Afflalo after chasing down a loose ball. The Celtics returned the favor with a turnover of their own, leading to a driving layup by Glen Davis. Boston quickly tied it again, and collected a rebound on its next possession after a missed jumper by Nelson with 30.4 left. After a Celtics timeout, Garnett missed an open jumper just inside the free throw line, but the ball caromed off a Magic player giving them another chance. But Pierce missed a leaning jumper at the buzzer to send it to overtime. The Celtics scored 13 points off nine Magic turnovers in the first half and led by as many as 12. When Orlando wasnt giving Boston easy baskets in transition, Rondo was a facilitating for his teammates in the half court. He dished out nine assists to go along with 10 points in the half, missing only two of his seven shots from the field. For the half, the Celtics also had a 30-16 scoring advantage in the paint. NOTES: Rondo has now had at least 10 assists in 37 consecutive games. ... The Magic lost for the first time this season when they score 100 or more points. ...Celtics coach Doc Rivers said there are some similarities in years rebuilding Magic team and the Heart and Hustle team he coached his first season in Orlando in 1999-00. Rivers took over that season following a major roster upheaval and led the Magic to a 41-41 mark, just missing the playoffs. I think it was (Pat) Riley that said the hardest thing about playing us, was you couldnt practice effort, Rivers said. I tell my team that now, that you cant practice it, you have to mentally prepare for it. And to me when you watch them, thats why they win games. MAGIC Continued from Page B1 Associated PressBLOOMINGTON, Ind. Will Sheehey scored 19 points to help No. 1 Indiana defeat Ball State 101-53 on Sunday. Jordan Hulls scored 17 points, Cody Zeller scored 15 and Christian Watford had 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Hoosiers (6-0). It was Indianas largest victory margin in a 21-game series that began in 1934. The Hoosiers previous largest victory margin against the Cardinals was 43 points in 1946 and 1983. It was Indianas first game since winning the Progressive Legends Classic with victories over Georgia and Georgetown in Brooklyn, N.Y. The Hoosiers already had been averaging 86 points per game before shooting 61 percent from the field against the Cardinals. Majok Majok scored 18 points and Jauwan Scaife added 11 for Ball State. The Cardinals (2-2) were coming off a 20-point loss to Indiana State. The Cardinals were outrebounded 42-29 and shot just 31 percent from the field. No. 6 Syracuse 87, Colgate 51 SYRACUSE, N.Y. James Southerland scored 18 points, Michael Carter-Williams had eight points and a career-high 13 assists, and No. 6 Syracuse beat Colgate 87-51 on Sunday. It was the 165th meeting between the upstate New York foes, and the Orange (4-0) won their 46th straight against Colgate (3-4). Carter-Williams, who had six rebounds and just one turnover, missed the only shot he attempted in the first half. But he assisted on nine of the Oranges first 10 baskets, giving him a real shot at challenging the school record for assists in a game. Sherman Douglas had 22 against Providence in January 1989. Pearl Washington had 18 against St. Johns during the 1983-84 season, and Douglas was among five players to notch 14 in a game. Brandon Triche finished with 15 points, freshman Dajuan Coleman had a career-high 12 points, and Rakeem Christmas had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Orange. No. 15 Michigan St 63, Louisiana-Lafayette 60 EAST LANSING, Mich. Keith Appling scored 19 points to help sluggish Michigan State survive a scare and beat Louisiana-Lafayette 63-60. Appling, who has scored at least 17 points in every game except one this season, was 4 for 11 from the field. But he made other plays at key times, hitting 10 free throws and adding six rebounds and five assists for the No. 15 Spartans (5-1). He also had help from several teammates. Branden Dawson scored 11 points and Brandan Kearney 10 off the bench. Elfrid Payton had 20 points for the Ragin Cajuns (2-4). Shawn Long added 16 points, and Kevin Brown had 14. But Louisiana-Lafayette shot just 11 of 21 from the line, which may have cost it a major upset. No. 17 Gonzaga 81, Davidson 67 LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. Elias Harris scored 24 points, Kevin Pangos added 23 and No. 17 Gonzaga beat Davidson 81-67 Sunday night in the Old Spice Classic championship game. Kelly Olynyk added 14 points for Gonzaga (6-0), which also won the 2008 Old Spice Classic. The Bulldogs are undefeated in six overall games at the tourney. Davidson (3-3) got 17 points from Nik Cochran. Jake Cohen had 13 and DeMon Brooks finished with 12. No. 20 Oklahoma St. 81, Portland St. 58STILLWATER, Okla.

Today is Monday, Nov. 26, the 331st day of 2012. There are 35 days left in the year. Todays Highlights: On Nov. 26, 1942, the motion picture Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, had its world premiere at the Hollywood Theater in New York. On this date: In 1789, Nov. 26 was a day of thanksgiving set aside by President George Washington to observe the adoption of the Constitution of the United States. In 1842, the founders of the University of Notre Dame arrived at the schools present-day site near South Bend, Ind. In 1933, a judge in New York decided the James Joyce book Ulysses was not obscene and could be published in the United States. In 1973, President Richard Nixons personal secretary, Rose Mary Woods, told a federal court shed accidentally caused part of the 18 1/2-minute gap in a key Watergate tape. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan appointed a commission headed by former Sen. John Tower to investigate his National Security Council staff in the wake of the IranContra affair.

Thought for Today: The difference between the men and the boys in politics is, and always has been, that the boys want to be something, while the men want to do something. Eric Sevareid (1912-1992). D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Bella Swan, James Bond and Abe Lincoln have combined to lift Hollywood to record Thanksgiving revenue at the box office. Kristen Stewarts finale as Bella in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was No. 1 again with $64 million during the five-day holiday stretch that began Wednesday, according to studio estimates Sunday. Daniel Craigs Bond adventure Skyfall came in at No. 2 with $51 million, while Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielbergs Civil War saga Lincoln finished third with $34.1 million. According to box-office tracker Hollywood.com, the three films paced Hollywood to an all-time Thanksgiving week best of about $290 million from Wednesday to Sunday. That tops the previous record of $273 million over Thanksgiving in 2009, when The Twilight Saga: New Moon led the weekend. This Thanksgiving also was a huge 25 percent jump from a year ago, when domestic revenues were a weak $232 million as some big holiday releases fizzled. With a strong December lineup ahead, Hollywood has resumed its record revenue pace for the year after a brief boxoffice lull in late summer and early fall. Domestic revenues for 2012 are at $9.75 billion, putting Hollywood potentially on track for its first $11 billion year, which would beat the 2009 record of $10.6 billion, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Were barreling toward a record-breaking box-office year, Dergarabedian said. Its built on the back of just a lot of really strong movies that have come out over the past few weekends. It bodes very well for the rest of the holidays. The Twilight finale, Skyfall and Lincoln finished in the same top-three rankings for the second-straight weekend as new releases were unable to dislodge the holdovers. Released by Lionsgates Summit Entertainment banner, Breaking Dawn Part 2, pulled in $43.1 million from Friday to Sunday, raising its domestic total to $227 million. The movie added $97.4 million overseas to bring its international total to $350.8 million and its worldwide take to $577.7 million. Sonys Skyfall also topped $200 million domestically, ringing up $36 million for the threeday weekend to put its U.S. total at $221.7 million. With $41.3 million more overseas, Skyfall raised its international revenues to $568.4 million and its worldwide sales to $790.1 million. Lincoln, a DreamWorks film distributed by Disney, took in $25 million over the weekend to lift its domestic revenue to $62.2 million. Leading the newcomers was Paramount and DreamWorks Animations tale Rise of the Guardians at No. 4 with $24 million for the weekend and $32.6 million since opening Wednesday. Based on William Joyces Guardians of Childhood books, Rise of the Guardians gathers Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and other mythical beings as a team of heroes battling an evil overlord. Close behind at No. 5 was director Ang Lees shipwreck saga Life of Pi at No. 5 with $22 million over the weekend. The 20th Century Fox release has taken in $30.2 million domestically since its Wednesday debut and added $17.5 million in four Asian markets. Life of Pi was adapted from Yann Martels best-selling novel about an Indian youth adrift on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger. Many fans considered the introspective novel impossible to film, but Lee has charmed audiences and critics with an inspiring survival story told through dazzling 3-D images. The weekends other new wide release, a remake of the 1980s U.S.-invasion tale Red Dawn, opened at No. 7 with $14.6 million, raising its total to $22 million since debuting Wednesday. Red Dawn sat on the shelf for three years while studio backer MGM went through bankruptcy, with distributor FilmDistrict eventually picking it up for domestic release. The movies cast includes Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) in a story of young guerrillas battling North Korean invaders. In limited release, Fox Searchlights Hitchcock opened solidly with about $300,000 in 17 theaters. The movie stars Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock in a behindthe-scenes story of the making of Psycho. The weekends overall strength came from a broad range of films that clicked with various audiences, from action and family fare to thoughtful drama. This is a marketplace that has something for everyone, said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox. You have something deeper like Life of Pi, yet you have a very successful sequel in Twilight at the same time. Adult biodrama, if you will, in Lincoln, and you have Bond. Thats the secret to a very successful and balanced marketplace. Bella, Bond and Abe Birthday Much-needed improvements in your financial affairs could be in the offing during coming months. Although the upswing might be a bit slow to start, once you get it on track, itll gain the desired momentum. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Establish an agenda and do your best to adhere to it. Unless you put some kind of plan together, you could get into trouble when trying to cut corners. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) While in your presence, a couple of friends might put down an absent friend. Under no circumstances should you contribute to the bash-fest. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Details could be of unusual importance when it comes to your big objectives. A failure to read the fine print and double-check everything could deprive you of the success you usually enjoy. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) There are very few things that would invite as many complications as being a copycat. Methods that worked well for another might cause you big trouble, and damage your reputation to boot. Aries (March 21-April 19) Guard against temptation to spend money on something previously proven to be wasteful. Dont be misled twice you cant afford it. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Although you might feel impelled to make a difficult decision, dont do so impulsively. Take plenty of time to study the matter first, weighing all of your alternatives. Gemini (May 21-June 20) A poor attitude will work to your detriment if youre not careful. You could easily make a problematical assignment even more difficult than it already is. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Be extremely careful not to come on too strong in your business and personal matters. Even if your input is well intended, your associates might feel youre trying to dominate them. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your respect for authority figures could appear to be nonexistent if youre not careful. Be as diplomatic as possible when dealing with persons who have a lot of clout. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If someone should ask you to deliver a message, take precautions and write it down. Your memory might not be up to its usual strength, and you may lose something in translation. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont trust important instructions to your memory. Your recall might not be as flawless as you think, and if not, you could land in a lot of trouble. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Cooperativeness is always important, but its especially essential in your current oneon-one relationships. If you lack the ability to work well with others, it could cause needless problems.

Florida LOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 E NTERTAINMENT Page B6 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 Associated PressLONDON The Rolling Stones made a triumphant return to the London stage Sunday night in the first of five concerts to mark the 50th anniversary of their debut as an American-oriented blues band. They showed no signs of wear and tear except on their aging, heavily lined faces as frontman Mick Jagger swaggered and strutted through a stellar 2 1/2 hour show. He looked remarkably trim and fit and was in top vocal form. The Stones passed the halfcentury mark in style at the sometimes emotional gig that saw former bassist Bill Wyman and guitar master Mick Taylor join their old mates in front of a packed crowd at Londons 02 Arena. It was the first of five mega-shows to mark the passage of 50 years since the band first appeared in a small London pub determined to pay homage to the masters of American blues. Jagger, in skin-tight black pants, a black shirt and a sparkly tie, took time out from singing to thank the crowd for its loyalty. Its amazing that were still doing this, and its amazing that youre still buying our records and coming to our shows, he said. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Lead guitarist Keith Richards, whose survival has surprised many who thought he would succumb to drugs and drink, was blunter: We made it, he said. Im happy to see you. Im happy to see anybody. But the bands fiery music was no joke, fuelled by an incandescent guest appearance by Taylor, who played lead guitar on a stunning extended version of the ominous Midnight Rambler, and Mary J. Blige, who shook the house in a duet with Jagger on Gimme Shelter. The 50th anniversary show, which will be followed by one more in London, then three in the New York area, lacked some of the bands customary bravado the worlds greatest rock n roll band intro was shelved and there were some rare nostalgic touches. Even the famously taciturn Wyman briefly cracked a smile when trading quips with Richards and Ronnie Wood. The concert started with a brief video tribute from luminaries like Elton John, Iggy Pop and Johnny Depp, who praised the Stones for their audacity and staying power.Rolling Stones mark 50th year with London show C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Todays HOROSCOPE Associated Press Mick Jagger, center, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, left, and Charlie Watts, back, of The Rolling Stones perform at the O2 arena Sunday in east London.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, N OVEMBER26, 2012 B7 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. For the next two-plus weeks, lets look at some of the best bridge books published in the last year. First, we have The Contested Auction by Roy Hughes (Master Point Press), the International Bridge Press Associations book of the year. In more than 300 pages, Hughes gives a comprehensive analysis of competitive bidding. However, be aware that it is not intended for inexperienced players. This deal from the book occurred during the 2011 Bermuda Bowl in the Netherlands. If Lorenzo Lauria from Italy (West) had doubled two hearts, it would have been negative, not penalty. After he passed, Alfredo Versace (East) reopened with a double, showing short hearts. West was happy to pass. Two hearts doubled can be taken down six! North, though, redoubled for rescue. When South bid three clubs, West passed to see if his partner wanted to double for penalty, which East was very happy to do. The defense was excellent, although declarer could have done better. West led the club ace, then shifted to his diamond. East won with his jack and played three more rounds of clubs, West discarding hearts. Now South would have done best to lead a low spade from the dummy. But he played the spade king. East took his ace and returned a spade to the nine and queen. The next spade went to the six and West cashed two more winners in the suit. South got dummys last trump and his heart ace for down five, minus 1,400. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Drugs, Inc.

Thomas left after graduation to live in another state. I know he has schizophrenia, and Im willing to take the risk. Even though Im 18 and still in high school, I plan to become a doctor. Ive done research and know what Im up against. Thomas says he hears voices and sees dark figures, and he snaps sometimes, but it seems like he can refocus once I get him to concentrate on me. Last Thursday, Thomas broke up with me. He apologized for breaking my heart, but he says his schizophrenia is getting worse, and he fears hes going to hurt me. Annie, Thomas knows I love him and would do anything for him. I gave up sleep and time to make sure he knows Im always here. I listen to him and hold him close when he gets upset. I never get mad at him. We have never fought. I dont want to lose him again. That happened once, and we didnt speak for three whole years! I dont want to go through that emotional turmoil again. I know people say Im too young to understand what love is, but I believe I have a good idea. I need advice. Terri Dear Terri: Thomas is telling you his schizophrenia is not under control, and he justifiably worries that he could hurt you or himself. Is he taking antipsychotic medication? He will need to do this for the rest of his life, and there are side effects. Schizophrenics also have an increased risk of drug and alcohol abuse. This is a lot of responsibility for anyone to take on. We dont doubt that you care deeply for Thomas, but you may be romanticizing your ability to save him. And your determination to have a relationship creates pressure that he apparently cant handle. Please put his welfare first and simply be his friend with no other expectation, and encourage him to stick with appropriate medical treatment. Dear Annie : Our son is marrying a beautiful woman from Mexico. The cost of the flights are more than his siblings can afford, not to mention the hotel, dresses, tuxes, showers, parties, etc. But we will help our kids because we know our son would be hurt if they didnt attend. The brides family may put us up at the hotel, which would be nice, but I dont want us to look like moochers. Do we still offer to pay for the rehearsal dinner? We have told our son how much money we can give them for a wedding gift, and all of this will deplete nearly all of our savings. Any advice? Need a Money Tree Dear Need: Please dont spend more than you can afford. Tell your son you have a budget that will have to cover all costs, including the rehearsal dinner. If it costs more, he will need to pay for it himself. Its OK to accept the offer from the brides family to put you up at a hotel. And it is not unreasonable to suggest to your son that he and his new bride have a reception later in your hometown for his siblings and other friends. We hope he can be reasonable instead of being hurt. Dear Annie: This is in response to Frustrated Dad, whose son plays video games all night and sleeps all day. Our son was the same.

Unfortunately, Trixie has a mammary cancer and has been deemed inoperable, although the vets have said she may have another year to live. We are seeking a very kind, compassionate individual or family who would be willing to foster Trixie until her time comes. She still is lively and affectionate, interacts well with other dogs, loves people, and shows that she still wants life. She would be provided free of charge with medication and food. When her time comes, she would be euthanized at the shelter free of charge. Once again, I say that she is a very sweet dog, who does not seem to know her condition, and we truly want her to live her last months in a home, not in a shelter. Is there someone out there who would be willing to provide this sweet girl with comfort for her last months of life? Please call Joanne @352-795-1288 or Donna @ 352-249-7801.

County works to find homes for shelter catsCHRISVANORMER Staff WriterMost people like cats. Euthanizing them causes guilt. Trying not to put to sleep many of the hundreds of cats taken into the Citrus County Animal Services shelter has been a challenge for county staff and commissioners. Cats have not been adopted at the same rate as dogs, who have been favored almost 2 to 1. Gradually, by working on new approaches, more cats are finding homes. Weve seen a 9 percent increase in cat adoptions since Sept. 15, said Pattie Amon, animal services operations manager. Thats the result of the free cats program, introduced by Commissioner JJ Kenney, which waives the adoption fees of $35 for cats for a six-month period from Sept. 15 to March 15 to improve the shelters adoption rates. The original adoption price for a cat was $35, which included the spaying or neutering surgery, vaccinations and microchip, Amon said. Considering the costs, the original fee was a bargain. According to Dr. Julie Rosenberger, director and staff veterinarian, vaccinations cost the county $7.75, with an additional $2.60 for boosters. Flea treatment and deworming costs are $7.90. A microchip costs $5.95. The leukemia test costs $9. Ear mite treatment, if necessary, is $5.50. In addition, surgical supplies can cost $10. Total costs can range from $30 to $36 per cat for the county. Now the cost is $5, just to cover the license.

But the issue could be back in front of the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) on Dec. 4. For the past two years, SBDC has received annual county funding enabling it to provide a local fullservice office. The money $32,500 a year came from the business tax receipts (formerly known as occupational license fees) paid by county businesses and earmarked for economic development services to local businesses. The local share allowed SBDC to attract and leverage approximately $70,000 of federal and state funding to invest in the full-time office in Citrus County.The Citrus County Chamber of Commerce provided office space. Renewal of the countys funds was due in May and supported by the Citrus County Economic Development Council and the chamber.However, in a surprise County office staffed three days a month In touch with inner felines DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleCat adoption rates have increased 9 percent at the Citrus County Animal Services shelter since the county waived the adoption fee Sept. 15.

Cyber Monday, coined in 2005 by a shopping trade group that noticed a spike in online sales the Monday after Thanksgiving when people returned to their work computers, is the next in a line of days that stores are counting on to jumpstart the holiday shopping season. This years Cyber Monday is expected to be the biggest online shopping day of the year for the third year in a row: According to research firm comScore, Americans are expected to spend $1.5 billion, up from $1.25 billion last year on Cyber Monday, as retailers ramp up deals to get shoppers to click on their websites.

DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleRivard Reding helps Ashley Gibson use a level at her Habitat for Humanity house being constructed in Homosassa Springs. Reding is a paid worker for Habitat for Humanity. STATE& LOCAL Page A3MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterA Lecanto man faces felony charges after a Homosassa man called emergency services on Sunday from a gas station to report hed been stabbed and punched. Justin Adam Bernstein, 25, of West Cinnamon Ridge Drive, Lecanto, was arrested at 1:55 p.m. Sunday on South Gaynor Drive, Lecanto, on charges of aggravated battery intentionally causing great bodily harm, permanent disability or disfigurement and robbery with a firearm or other dangerous weapon. His bond is $55,000. According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Offices arrest report, a 23-year-old Homosassa man contacted dispatch shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday to report he had been stabbed near the intersection of Creed Avenue and Cyrus Street in Crystal River. Although none of the mans injuries appeared to be lifethreatening, he was taken to Citrus Memorial hospital for treatment. While in the hospital, the man told how he met with Bernstein in the parking lot of the Brannen Bank at the intersection of State Road 44 and Creed Avenue to buy some cannabis. The man told officers he and Bernstein drove in his vehicle to a residence on Creed Avenue. Bernstein entered the residence, but when he came out, the man said the transaction was no good. According to the report, the man said Bernstein pressed a knife to his head and neck and demanded money. An officer observed minor lacerations to the mans neck. The victim said Bernstein also struck him in the face with his left hand while holding the knife in his right hand. The man said as he tried to push Bernstein away with his foot, Bernstein grabbed his ankle and sliced his lower left calf with the knife. An officer observed the man had defensive stab wounds to his left arm, cuts to his right hand and swelling to his forehead and under his right eye, which also was bleeding. The man showed officers how his clothing was ripped as personal property was taken from him. He said he kicked Bernstein in the face, allowing him to lock his vehicle door and drive to the Sunoco gas station. Officers contacted Bernstein, who arranged to turn himself in. According to the report, Bernstein said he suspected the man was trying to cheat him, because he increased the amount of cannabis he wanted to a quarter pound and said he had to go somewhere else to get the money. Bernstein said the man attacked him and pulled a knife. He said he did not recall stabbing the man or taking his property. As he had no explanation as to how the man sustained his injuries, Bernstein was arrested. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvan ormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Police: Drug dispute leads to stabbing Lecanto man faces assault charges Justin Bernsteinis accused of stabbing a Homosassa man. Editors note: For nearly 20 years in Citrus County, Habitat for Humanity has been making peoples dreams of owning their own home come true. The Chronicleoften presents stories and photos of wall raisings and home dedications. On Sept. 18, we began a series covering the entire Habitat process, from the first orientation class to a new homeowner family getting the key to the front door. Todays story: Mandatory Tuesday homeownership training classes. NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Its more like a family meeting than a training class, as Citrus County Habitat for Humanity executive director Terry Steele sits at the head of a conference table. Every Tuesday night for five weeks, potential Habitat homeowners some having worked on their houses, others still working to get their down payment and required sweat equity volunteer hours in before they can start to build meet with Steele for five mandatory classes. Class one: Introduction to Habitat for Humanity history, requirements for being accepted into the program, budgeting. Class two: Credit card lending too good to be true offers, check cashing stores, pawn shops. Class three: Mortgages and insurance monthly payments, foreclosures, insurance, escrow. Class four: Being a good neighbor zoning laws, pets, neighbors. Class five: Home care and repair home maintenance tips, important safety devices, yard care. On a recent Tuesday night, Terry Steele started the training class with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. He looked around the table and said, When youre part of Habitat, youre part of the family. He commended some of the people about their diligence in getting in their sweat equity volunteer hours and chided others to pick up the pace. If you have any questions, come talk to me, he said. Steele probably repeats that sentence no less than 20 times a day. He wants everyone who wants and qualifies for a Habitat home to succeed in getting one. This particular class was about mortgages and insurance. Other classes deal with topics ranging from financial budgeting and credit traps to being a good neighbor and being responsible for home repairs. One of the homework assignments is to keep a record of every single purchase for a set period of time, which is a huge eye-opener. For Ashley and Lance Gibson, it was shocking to see how much money they spent on Lances lunch breaks. As a tire and lube express technician at Walmart in Inverness, he had been used to eating at the McDonalds inside the store or going to nearby Wendys because it was convenient. We didnt have a budget until our class with Terry, Ashley said. Since then, weve adjusted a lot of things, like getting a different car insurance company, not going out to eat and now (Lance) gets his lunch from the deli counter, which saves a lot. Classes are designed to get people who have never owned a home before to stop thinking like a renter and start thinking like a homeowner. Steele continually stresses, Its yourhouse. When it comes to something needing repair after a homeowner moves in, its not uncommon for the person to call Steele for help, just as renters are used to calling a landlord. We tell them, When something goes wrong, you have to look in the mirror to see whos going to fix it, he said, adding when people do call, often he can talk them through some things to do before they call a repair service and save them $75 for a service call. These classes open your eyes to things you normally wouldnt consider as a renter, said Jamil Namey, who has not started building his house yet. They give us helpful, useful information so youre informed going into your home rather than getting into your home and finding out what you should know.Next up: Almost home the finishing touches.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927. Change in thinking From renter to owner, Habitat class teaches homeowners to think differently Search for suffocation found on Anthony computer Associated PressORLANDO The Florida sheriffs office that investigated the disappearance of Casey Anthonys 2-year-old daughter overlooked evidence that someone in their home conducted a Google search for fool-proof suffocation methods on the day the girl was last seen alive. Orange County sheriffs Capt. Angelo Nieves said Sunday the offices computer investigator missed the June 16, 2008, search. The agencys admission was first reported by Orlando television station WKMG. Its not known who performed the search. The station reported it was done on a browser primarily used by the 2-year-olds mother, Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of the girls murder in 2011. Anthonys attorneys argued during trial Casey Anthony helped her father, George Anthony, cover up the girls drowning in the family pool. WKMG reported sheriffs investigators pulled 17 vague entries only from the computers Internet Explorer browser, not the Mozilla Firefox browser commonly used by Casey Anthony. More than 1,200 Firefox entries, including the suffocation search, were overlooked. Whoever conducted the Google search looked for the term fool-proof suffication, misspelling suffocation, and then clicked on an article about suicide that discussed taking poison and putting a bag over ones head. The browser then recorded activity on the social networking site MySpace, which was used by Casey Anthony but not her father. A computer expert for Anthonys defense team found the search before the trial. Her lead attorney, Jose Baez, first mentioned the search in his book about the case but suggested it was George Anthony who conducted the search after Caylee drowned because he wanted to kill himself. Not knowing about the computer search, prosecutors had argued Caylee was poisoned with chloroform and then suffocated by duct tape placed over her mouth and nose. The girls body was found six months after she disappeared in a field near the family home and was too decomposed for an exact cause of death to be determined.

Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE The state of Florida is asking thousands of young women some intimate questions about their sex lives and is giving them a $10 gift card in return but some who received the survey are offended.The South Florida Sun Sentinelreported Sunday the Department of Health sent surveys to 4,100 women between 18 and 24, giving participants a CVS gift card. Officials say the survey will help them understand womens need for and approach to family-planning services. The state spent $45,000 on the 46question survey, which was sent out in September and October, and 782 have been returned. Participants were asked how many men they had sex with in the past year, whether a man ever poked holes in a condom to get them pregnant and how they felt emotionally the last time they had unprotected sex. A November batch werent mailed after it was found that some of the surveys were sent to girls under 18. We obviously offered an apology sent back in writing and will work to ensure that moving forward, this never happens again, state Surgeon General Dr. John Armstrong told the paper. He added participation is voluntary. If somebody sees something they dont like, they can rip it up and throw it in the garbage can, he said. The state says the names of those surveyed will be kept private, but some who received it questioned whether that would be true and how their answers would be used. David Brown, a Broward County political consultant, said he was given the survey by a woman who was offended when she received it. Some of the questions are incredibly offensive and invasive, Brown told the Sun-Sentinel. She thought that it was an unconscionable invasion of her privacy. There wasnt enough information to tell her who really did this and where the budget was for it, whether the information was going to be kept private, and really, what are they talking about in terms of how does this information in any way help? The paper reported several questions from the survey: How did you feel emotionally when you had unprotected sex were you trying to get pregnant, were you in the heat of the moment and just went with the flow, or did you find the man attractive and thought it would be nice to have a baby with him? Did you feel powerless? Or was it that you felt emotionally connected with your partner during sex? How old were you when you first had sex? The last time you had sex with a man did you do anything to keep from getting pregnant? If not, why not? Has a sexual partner ever told you he would have a baby with someone else if you didnt get pregnant? Physically forced you to have sex? Hurt you physically because you did not agree to get pregnant? Are you depressed? Have you ever been physically abused? Whats your religion? Do you smoke? How much do you weigh? Armstrong said the survey was created using questions that have appeared in other surveys used nationally and it was vetted by review boards at the state health department and Florida A&M University. The state says Florida has one of the lowest rates of contraceptive use among women of child-bearing age. The results will be used to design the states service offerings, including pamphlets and counseling. Women can receive contraceptives at the health department for a fee thats based on income.

Highland Boulevard, Inverness. move, the county commission voted to eliminate SBDC funding from the budget. Unable to attract federal and state dollars without receiving county matching dollars, the SBDC was forced to begin the process of reducing its operation in Citrus County. Several commissioners had expressed an interest in bringing the issue back for another vote; so, in good faith, the SBDC drew on reserve funds to continue its full-time operation for more than six months. At its Nov. 13 meeting, the BOCC again postponed a decision to provide the funds. According to an SBDC news release, with the reserve exhausted, the agency has been forced to reduce its services to Citrus County until matching funds can be restored. SBDC has been the arm of the EDC, John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council, said at that meeting. Its another person on the street dealing with companies that are here and want to survive and grow. They are making that happen. They give us $70,000 in a federal grant, you spend $32,500 and are receiving a $100,000 worth of effort. Commissioner J.J. Kenney put forth a motion to reinstate the funding, but Commissioner Dennis Damato said he wanted to see more transparency and accountability. He expressed concern about the value of the organization and duplication of services. Kenney rescinded his motion and asked the issue be referred until Dec. 4. This will provide an opportunity for additional information on the request and the new commissioner will be on board. For now, the SBDC office in Homosassa will be staffed three days a month. New, current and past clients can call 866-998-8332 for an appointment on one of these days as availability allows. Should county funding be restored, SBDC will resume full-time consulting, training and information services from offices in Homosassa, Inverness and Crystal River.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

cats. During the summer, the cat population increased to the point where the shelter started half-price cat adoptions to place more of the pets into homes. Rosenberger told commissioners the half-price program increased adoptions significantly when compared to previous months. Now, the free adoptions program, which requires adopters to buy a $5 county cat license, has been compared to the same time span as last year. According to Amon, from Sept. 15, 2012, to Nov. 20, 2012, a 10-week period, 549 cats were brought into the shelter. Of that total, 433 cats were adopted and 65 were transferred to animal rescue groups. By the numbers, 498 of the 549 cats made their way out of the shelter. That is a 9 percent increase in adoptions compared to the same period for 2011: 384 cats were adopted and 65 were transferred. Commissioner Kenney brought this idea forward just to see what it would do for the cat adoptions, Amon said. So far, the cat count looks healthier than before, which bodes favorably for the sixmonth trial. Volunteers help county shelter staff on a focused mission to make the free adoption program successful. Much work goes into taking in the cats and preparing them for adoption. Cats that come in, whether they are strays or surrendered or seized, they all are tested for leukemia before they are put into the shelter, Amon said. We dont know what they have been exposed to when they come in here. It would help the shelter, Amon said, if people who surrender their pets would take their vaccination records to the shelter with the animal to avoid unnecessary medicating. An impounded cat starts in the shelters garage, where animal control officers can leave them after business hours. After testing, medicating and having its health confirmed, a cat goes into one of two rooms in the shelter where it can be seen and adopted. One room has several enclosures, each holding one or more cats. The other room is one large enclosure provided by a volunteer for about six to 10 cats. But its not just a kitty jail. The volunteers are huge in the adoption effort, Amon said. We have people who basically just come in and sit in this room and one after the other they play with the cats to keep them socialized and friendly. The free adoption for cats program is part of the commissions Strive for Life resolution passed Nov. 15. By compromise with animal advocate groups, the commission unanimously passed the resolution after having found a proposal for a nokill shelter unrealistic as a goal. The Strive for Life program commits the county to five procedures the shelter is conducting: Working with nonprofit organizations to promote adoptions. Hiring a volunteer outreach coordinator to increase the level of volunteerism at the shelter and coordinate outreach activities in the community. Obtaining a mobile adoption unit to increase public awareness and raise adoption rates. Coordinating with local partners for the implementation of the feral cat trap, neuter and release program. Continuing to provide public education about the importance spaying and neutering. On the latter point, Amon said anyone with a pet could reduce the necessity of euthanizing animals by spaying or neutering that pet. Citing statistics from the ASPCA, she said one unspayed female cat that produces three litters of four to five kittens per year potentially could create more than 91 million cats within seven years if all offspring survived and produced exponentially. Every year, as many as four million dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States. According to the ASPCA, these high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2012 A5 000BO4M CARPET TILE WOOD VINYL LAMINATE SERVING CITRUS COUNTY SINCE 1975 527-1811 FREE ESTIMATES 44 W.

according to the annual Christmas Price Index compiled by PNC Wealth Management. That comes to $107,300. The rise is larger than expected considering the modest economic growth weve had, said Jim Dunigan, managing executive of investments for PNC. He noted the governments Consumer Price Index has risen 2 percent in the 12 months before September. Thrifty shoppers may find some reasons for cheer. Six items mentioned in the song havent gone up in price: maids-a-milking, ladies dancing, lords-aleaping, calling birds, turtle doves and the partridge. The eight maids-a-milking still cost just $58 because the minimum wage hasnt risen. Twelve drummers drumming ($2,775.50) and eleven pipers piping ($2,562) might also be considered relative bargains compared to seven swans, which will set you back $7,000. Nine ladies dancing will cost you $6,294.03. Dunigan said the 2011 drought caused the prices of some birds to soar, partly because of corn and other feed costs. The geese were up 29.6 percent, and swans were up 11 percent, Dunigan said, adding none of the gifts in the song went down in price this year. The price of a pear tree is $189.99, an 11.8 percent jump from last years $169.99. Five gold rings jumped 16.3 percent this year, to $750, and three French hens are now $165, instead of $150. The $15 partridge is the cheapest item, and swans the most expensive, at $1,000 each. Last-minute shoppers who turn to the Internet will pay a bit more for the gifts. Buying one set of the core items in each verse costs $24,431 in traditional stores this year, but $40,440 online. Part of that difference is the extra expense of shipping live birds, Dunigan said, adding Internet costs rose 1.5 percent compared to last year. PNC Financial Services Group Inc. checks jewelry stores, dance companies, pet stores and other sources to compile the list. Some of its sources this year include the National Aviary in Pittsburgh and the Philadelphia-based Pennsylvania Ballet Company. Annie Johnson Senior & Familys Food Pantry 1991 W.

Associated PressThink Sandy was just a 100-year storm that devastated New York City? Imagine one just as bad, or worse, every three years. Prominent planners and builders said now is the time to think big to shield the citys core: a 5-mile barrier blocking the entryway to New York Harbor, an archipelago of man-made islets guarding the tip of Manhattan, or something like CDM Smith engineer Larry Murphys 1,700-foot barrier complete with locks for passing boats and a walkway for pedestrians at the mouth of the Arthur Kill waterway between the borough of Staten Island and New Jersey. Act now, before the next deluge, and they said it could even save money in the long run.StrategiesThese strategies arent just pipe dreams. Not only do these technologies already exist, some of the concepts have been around for decades and have been deployed successfully in other countries and U.S. cities. So if the science and engineering are sound, the longterm cost would actually be a savings, and the frequency and severity of more killer floods is inevitable, whats the holdup? Political will.RoadblocksLike the argument in towns across America when citizens want a traffic signal installed at a dangerous intersection, Sandys 43 deaths and estimated $26 billion in damages citywide might not be enough to galvanize the public and the politicians into action. Unfortunately, they probably wont do anything until something bad happens, said CDM Smiths Murphy. And I dont know if this will be considered bad enough.Weather forecastsSandy and her 14-foot surge not bad enough? By centurys end, researchers forecast up to four feet higher seas, producing storm flooding akin to Sandys as often as several times each decade. Even at current sea levels, Sandys floodwaters filled subways, other tunnels and streets in parts of Manhattan. Without other measures, rebuilding will simply augment the future destruction. Yet thats what political leaders are emphasizing. President Barack Obama himself has promised to stand with the city until the rebuilding is complete. So it might take a worse superstorm or two to really get the problem fixed.Wrong focusThe focus on rebuilding irks people such as Robert Trentlyon, a retired weekly newspaper publisher in lower Manhattan who is campaigning for sea barriers to protect the city: The public is at the woe-is-me stage, rather than how-dowe-prevent-this-in-thefuture stage. He belongs to a coterie of professionals and ordinary New Yorkers who want to take stronger action. Though pushing for a regional plan, they are especially intent on keeping Manhattan dry. The 13-mile-long island serves as the countrys financial and entertainment nerve center. Within a 3mile-long horseshoe-shaped flood zone around its southernmost quadrant are almost 500,000 residents and 300,000 jobs. Major storms swamp places such as Wall Street and the site of the World Trade Center.PreventionProven technology already exists to blunt or virtually block wind-whipped seas from overtaking lower Manhattan and much of the rest of New York City, according to a series of Associated Press interviews with engineers, architects and scientists and a review of research on flooding issues in the New York metropolitan area and around the globe. These strategies range from hard structures such as mammoth barriers equipped with ship gates and embedded at entrances to the harbor, to softer and greener shoreline restraints like man-made marshes and barrier islands. Additional landfill, the old standby once used to extend Manhattan into the harbor, could further lift vulnerable highways and other sites beyond the reach of the seas. Even more simply, the rock and concrete seawalls and bulkheads already in lower Manhattan could be built up, but perhaps with high-tech wave-absorbing or wave-reflecting materials.Two conceptsSeizing the initiative from government, business and academic circles have fleshed out several dramatic concepts to hold back water before it tops the shoreline. Two of the most elaborate proposals are:A rock causeway, with 80-foot-high swinging ship gates, would sweep five miles across the entryway to inner New York Harbor from Sandy Hook, N.J., to Breezy Point, N.Y. To protect Manhattan, another shorter barrier is needed to the north, where the East River meets Long Island Sound, and another small blockage would go up near Sandy Hook. An extensive green makeover of lower Manhattan would install an elaborate drainage system beneath the streets, build up the very tip by 6 feet, pile 30-foot earthen mounds along the eastern edge, and create perimeter wetlands and a phalanx of artificial barrier islets all to absorb the brunt of a huge storm surge. Plantings along the streets would help soak up runoff that floods the city sewers during heavy rains.

If the trash truck or bus rolling down your street seems a little quieter these days, youre not imagining things. Its probably running on natural gas. Surging gas production has led the drilling industry to seek out new markets for its product, and energy companies, increasingly, are setting their sights on the transportation sector. Touting natural gas as a cheaper, cleaner-burning alternative to gasoline and diesel, drillers, public utilities and government officials are trying to boost demand for natural gas buses, taxis, shuttles, delivery trucks and heavy-duty work vehicles of all sorts, while simultaneously encouraging development of the fueling infrastructure that will be needed to keep them running. The economics are compelling. Natural gas costs about $1.50 to $2 per gallon equivalent less than gasoline and diesel. That can add up to tens of thousands of dollars in savings for vehicles that guzzle fuel. Fleet managers are taking notice. Companies as diverse as AT&T, Waste Management and UPS are converting all or parts of their fleets to natural gas, as are transit agencies, municipalities and state governments. Now that you can save a dollar or two dollars a gallon, theres huge interest in the market, especially in those fleets that use a lot of fuel, said Richard Kolodziej, president of the trade group Natural Gas Vehicles for America. Waste Management, the nations largest trash hauler, has committed to replacing 80 percent of its fleet with trucks powered by natural gas. Rich Mogan, the companys district manager in southwestern Pennsylvania, said about half of his fleet of 100 trucks run on the cheaper fuel. They are quieter and less expensive to maintain, he said, and we are looking at a 50 percent reduction in our (fuel) cost. Driller EQT Corp. opened its own natural gas filling station outside Pittsburgh in summer 2011, using it to refuel its trucks while also making it available to the public. Its now doing about 1,000 fill-ups a month and only half involve EQT vehicles. Other users include City of Pittsburgh trash trucks, shuttles run by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, a taxi service and a handful of consumers.

Sears is offering $430 off a Maytag washer and dryer, each on sale for $399. And Kmart is offering 75 percent off diamond earrings and $60 off a 12-in-1 multigame table on sale for $89.99. Retailers are hoping the deals will appeal to shoppers such as Matt Sexton, 39, who for the first time plans to complete all his holiday shopping online this year on his iPad tablet computer. Sexton, who plans to spend up to $4,000 this season, already shopped online on the day after Thanksgiving known as Black Friday and found a laptop from Best Buy for $399, a $200 savings, among other deals. The descriptions and reviews are so much better online so you can compare and price shop and for the most part get free shipping, said Sexton, who lives in Queens, N.Y., and is a manager at a utility company. Sexton also said its easy to return an online purchase to a physical store than it had been in previous years. That helps with gifts, he said. How well retailers do on Cyber Monday will offer insight into Americans evolving shopping habits. With the growth in high speed Internet access and the wide and increasing use of smartphones and tablet computers, people are relying less on their work computers to shop than they did when Shop.org, the digital division of trade group The National Retail Federation, coined the term Cyber Monday. As a result, the period between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday has have become busy for online shopping as well. Indeed, IBM Benchmark, which tracks online sales, said on Thanksgiving, a day that historically had not been big for online shopping, online sales this year rose 17.4 percent over 2011. Of that, mobile shopping, or shopping on smartphones and tablets, rose 18.3 percent. Meanwhile, online sales on Black Friday were up 20.7 percent. For the overall holiday season, comScore predicts online sales will be up 17 percent to $43.4 billion. And the research firm expects online sales to surpass 10 percent of total retail spending this holiday season. The National Retail Federation estimates that overall retail sales in November and December will be up 4.1 percent this year to $586.1 billion People years ago didnt have the kind of connectivity to shop online at their homes. So when they went back to work after Thanksgiving theyd shop on the Monday after, said Vicki Cantrell, executive director of Shop.org. Now they dont need the work computer to be able to do that. But as other days become popular for online shopping, Cyber Monday may lose some of its cache. To be sure, Cyber Monday hasnt always been the biggest online shopping day. In fact, up until three years ago, that title was historically held on the last day shoppers can order items with standard shipping rates and get them delivered before Christmas. That day usually falls in late December. Even though Cyber Monday is expected to be the biggest shopping day this year, industry watchers say it could just be a matter of time before other days take that ranking. Of all the benchmark spending days, Thanksgiving is growing at the fastest rate, up 128 percent over the last five years, said Andrew Lipsman, a spokesman with comScore.

WeirdWIRE Card mailed during WWII arrives at NY homeELMIRA, N.Y. A postcard mailed nearly 70 years ago has finally arrived at the former upstate New York home of the couple who sent it. The postcard was sent July 4, 1943, from Rockford, Ill., to sisters Pauline and Theresa Leisenring in Elmira. Their brother, George Leisenring, was stationed at Rockfords Medical Center Barracks at Camp Grant, an Army post during World War II. Their parents were visiting him when they mailed the postcard home. The postcard reads in part, Dear Pauline and Theresa, We arrived safe, had a good trip, but we were good and tired. Elmiras Star-Gazette newspaper reported the postcard arrived last week at the familys former home, where a different family now lives. A postal official said the postcard may have been found by someone outside the postal service and placed in the mail.Two tons of pigeon droppings in churchSTOCKHOLM A hatch on a Swedish church tower inadvertently left open for some three decades resulted in 2 tons of pigeon droppings amassing in the tower. The churchs property manager said the layer of droppings was 12 inches deep when it was discovered during a May inspection of the Heliga Trefaldighets Kyrka in Gavle, 105 miles north of Stockholm. Lennart Helzenius said Thursday church staff had been shocked by the sheer number of bags of excrement cleaners were removing from the tower. He said the droppings filled 80 bags in the first round of cleaning, and then just as many in the second round. Helzenius said the hatch had probably been left open since the 1980s.Real estate agent stole for-sale signsBRIDGEPORT, Conn.

Police said 54-year-old Robert Toth, of Shelton, was charged Wednesday with third-degree larceny and firstdegree criminal trespass. Toth owns American Home Realty in Trumbull. Police said U.S. Asset Realty owner Jihad Shaheer complained in September that his signs had been stolen from more than a half-dozen sites in Bridgeport and from the front of two homes in Stratford. Police told the Connecticut Post they later determined Toth had been taking the signs. Toth had worked for Shaheer before opening his own real estate company.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 Pitts column misses markLeonard Pitts lecture to Republicans went far beyond his usual pompous audacity (GOPs biggest problem? Itself, Nov. 15). One wonders if Mr. Pitts would have been kindly disposed to a similar chastisement of Democrats by a Republican following Ronald Reagans landslide victory. Pitts cannot fail to mention racial prejudice in his columns. What he neglects to mention in this column are the numerous advertisements immediately after Romney was nominated. You remember Romney is a rich guy who cannot possibly have compassion for the rest of us! This should be named for what it is: Prejudice toward a minority. The message played well and may have garnered significant votes for Mr. Obama. Regarding race, one should remember, as the current Lincoln film illustrates, it was Republicans over and against the vast majority of Democrats who passed the 13th Amendment giving slaves all the rights and privileges of American citizenry. Doubtless, much soul searching is underway by the Republican Party and new approaches will be made in 2016. Meanwhile, America has lost a man of incredible skill who could have turned around a nation struggling economically. One can only pray Mr. Obama will be a wiser president in his second term. If not, thousands of our neighbors will continue to suffer and our nation will fall into even greater decline.Earle W. Pratt LecantoTime to do what you were toldIf it wasnt so sad, it would be a great TV reality show. Congress that bastion of morality is pretending to be outraged at the behavior of two generals. The fact that by continuing to perpetuate this phony outrage they are humiliating the spouses and families of these two men doesnt seem to bother them at all. Do we need to investigate the Benghazi disaster? Of course we do. Do we need to give it priority over keeping America from going over the financial cliff into another recession or worse? I dont think so. Some continue to say the president is the one who wont work with Congress. The fact is, every time he tried to work with them, they said no. Someone once said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. I dont know how long you expect someone to beat their head against a brick wall before they realize it is futile, but I think the president gave it his best shot. Politicians always start their party talking points with the phrase, The American people want then go on to prove they havent a clue to what the people want. In this election, the American people told you what we want. Now we expect you to do it!Evlyn Skurow Crystal River In the film Groundhog Day, Bill Murray wakes up each morning and relives the previous day. A similar scenario is playing out in the Middle East between Israel and her enemies. The deadly movie always goes like this: Israel is shelled or attacked by terrorists groups, often called militants by the media, each one with the same goal: Israels elimination. After demonstrating considerable restraint of the kind that would never be tolerated by any other nation, Israel fires back. Suddenly, the world awakens from its indifference. World leaders, who said little when Israeli civilians were wounded and killed, now urge restraint by both sides, as if a moral equivalency exists between victim and predator. In the run-up to confrontation, it has been reported Hamas placed weaponry among civilians, hoping when Israeli airstrikes started they could show photos of dead children, bringing condemnation on Israel. Whats more, according to Breitbart.com, Hamas has a well-established pattern of faking civilian deaths in Gaza, even as it seeks civilian deaths in Israel. American and foreign TV networks particularly CNN and BBC are then brought in to channel the Palestinian line, portraying Israel as the aggressor. Next comes the hand-wringing and suggestions Israel must do more to, as George W. Bush said in his 2002 Road Map for Peace speech, satisfy the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people. In the past when Israel has done more, such as releasing terrorists, or giving up land taken in war to buttress its security, Israels do more has brought it less: less security, less peace and less approval from a world that largely wishes it would disappear. The spineless United Nations urged all concerned to exercise maximum restraint, ignoring Israels considerable restraint while facing intolerable provocations. And so the process replays. Bernard Lewis, the renowned scholar and expert on the history of Islam, was recently aboard a post-election cruise sponsored by National Review magazine, as was I. Lewis noted the Cold War featured mutual assured destruction (MAD), which served as a deterrent for the United States and Soviet Union from using their nuclear weapons against each other. Lewis said for Islamic nations such as Iran (which sponsors Hamas in Gaza), MAD is not a deterrent, but an inducement. Thats because, he said, the Iranian regime believes in the apocalyptic end of days in which the 12th Imam the Islamic messiah will emerge in the midst of a nuclear war with Israel and save humanity with Islam the surviving religion. Lewis argues for regime change in Iran, but urges the West to be cautious in the way it goes about promoting it. Iran, he said, is a nation with a long and proud history. He believes the West must not give Iran a patriotic excuse it could use to ignite nationalist passions. Young Iranians hate their rulers, Lewis said, and the message from the West, which should be conveyed to them via social media, should affirm Irans ancient history and Persian roots. That history, he believes, can be used to overcome the religious fanatics now running the country. Lewis, who has seen a lot in his nearly 100 years, believes the Middle East will become less important over time. The decline of Arab and Islamic nations, he thinks, will continue as the world discovers new sources for fossil fuels and alternatives to oil, the primary product these countries supply to the world. As income from oil declines, Lewis believes increased migration, mostly to Europe, but also to the United States, risks changing Western cultures. That could mean that Islamic domination could be achieved through immigration, not war. In the meantime, Israel is faced with an existential threat, partially of its own making. I argued against the unilateral ceding of Gaza to the Palestinians. It didnt take a prophet to foresee terrorist groups using Gaza to launch attacks against Israeli civilians. If Israel invades Gaza again, there will be more pictures of dead civilians. But even if a ground effort is successful and Hamas is partially or entirely neutralized, that wont solve the problem. New terrorists will arrive. The cycle of war will repeat. Its a real-life Groundhog Day.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com.

The county commission finally agreed last Monday to award a contract to TransSystems to complete and produce a study on the feasibility of operating a port in northwest Citrus County. The study will cost $100,000, with half of the expense being covered by a grant from the state port authority. This could be the most hotly debated $50,000 expenditure in the history of county government. In fact, only $8,000 of actual local tax dollars are being used. The other funds came from the EDC, Workforce Development and the occupational license tax paid by businesses. For more than two years, the concept of creating a port in the northwest part of the county has been proposed and dissected. The port was proposed as a job-creation industrial effort in a county that saw its unemployment rate skyrocket to more than 14 percent during the current economic downturn. The theory behind the proposal is businesses interested in moving or receiving products in this part of the state would locate in the area around the Barge Canal or Progress Energy and create jobs. The feasibility study would be used to determine whether the proposal makes financial sense and whether the county should proceed. The barge canal was constructed by the federal government to create a cross-Florida transportation route, but was stopped for environmental concerns in the 1970s. Progress Energy also has a barge canal in the region that operates to deliver coal to the power plants. The feasibility study would look at the option of using and expanding the current facilities to serve other business interests. The idea of operating a port in Citrus County has generated a huge amount of criticism from residents who think the idea is dumb. They might be right. In our view, it is prudent to at least study the idea. Citrus County has a desperate need to broaden its economic base. Our decades of dependence on the homebuilding industry has led us to be one of the last counties in the United States to begin any signs of an economic recovery. The feasibility study will tell Citrus County if this is a place where new jobs can be created. As we understand it, local tax dollars are not going to be used to build and operate a port for the benefit of business. Instead, a port would be created through private investment and then funded through a standard tax on the goods that come and go from the facility. One private business has already purchased property in the region for the purpose of using a byproduct from the coal plants to build wall board. If there is not enough interest from private investors, and there are not enough goods that could be moved in and out of the port, the idea will sink like a constitutional amendment on Election Day. Government does have a role to play in job creation. In our view, that is what Citrus County is doing in studying this idea. While $50,000 is a lot of money by anyones standards, it is a good investment to answer the question about the possibility of creating a facility that would bring more jobs to our community. Improving our economy is the most important item on the public agenda. That does not happen unless leaders in government actually do something.

Thank you from Rosie (Red Dog)Joshuas House for Golden Retriever Rescue would like to thank everyone who contributed to the care of Rosie. Rosie was hit by a car in Crystal River, picked up by Animal Control and taken to Midway Animal Hospital for evaluation. Our president, Ellen Pavlik, who works at Midway, looked into Rosies eyes and decided she was not a golden, but deserved a chance. Ellen contacted the Board of Joshuas House and all agreed we needed to help this little girl and contribute to her care. Rosies injuries were greater than first determined, and we were struggling with the bills. Ellen and John Pavlik and many board members contributed privately, but we were rapidly falling behind. Thanks to the Chronicleand an article by Eryn Worthington, you, the public, became involved. With your help and contributions, we were able to pay all of Rosies bills. Rosie is doing well; she attended our Golden Retriever Rescue Reunion in October and became the star of the day. We are all so grateful for your assistance. We read about so much anger and so many hurtful things going on in the world today; it is wonderful to know we are living in a community that has so much heart. You have given an injured stray dog a second chance at life. That is what rescue is all about.Kay Krieger recording secretary for Joshuas House for Golden Retriever Rescue Beverly HillsPet idol contest a successFriends of Citrus County Animal Services would like to thank everyone who participated in our second annual Pet Idol Contest this year to decide the 12 pets that will be highlighted in our 2013 Year of Saved Lives FOCCAS Calendar. We are delighted by the growth in submissions this year, and the outcome will be a beautiful calendar of beloved cats and dogs! The pet with the highest number of votes will also grace the front cover. Calendars will be on sale on Saturday, Dec. 1, at the fourth annual K-9 Karnival in Liberty Park, Inverness sponsored by the Greater Inverness Olde Towne Association. The price of the calendar will be $10. Calendars can be preordered by visiting our website at www. FriendsofCCAS.org or calling us at 352-201-8664. Proceeds from the calendar sales will go toward helping animals in need of homes at our shelter in a multitude of ways. We fund extraordinary medical expenses for animals that would otherwise be virtually impossible to find homes for due to their medical condition (what adopter expects to outlay more than the cost of the adoption fee when coming to our shelter?). The 2013 calendar has pictures of just some of the lives your contributions from last years calendar have assisted. We fund transport and adoption expenses associated with transferring dogs to qualified rescue programs. We assist the shelter in funding projects and essentials that may be outside the realm of their allocated budget. We would like to thank the following sponsors, many of whom support our mission every day of the year: TheCitrus County Chronicle, Countryside Animal Hospital, TLC Animal Hospital, Midway Animal Hospital, The Ice Cream Dr., Bow Wow Boutique, Skoors Natural Market, Inverness Yoga & Wellness, Ritzy Rags & Glitzy Jewels, Deco Caf, Nature Coast Tees/ Graphic Elite Printing, Bark Central Dog Park, Lorraine Clark Pet Portraits, ValuePet Supplies.com/Casita Big Dog Rescue and Jackie Devine Designs. This years calendar is dedicated to our volunteers who have worked so hard these past three years to assist our shelter in their work and hope you will continue to find the inspiration to do what you do! Thank you also to Dr. Julie Rosenberger for your humane attitude to the practice of shelter medicine, which needs to be acknowledged with greater regularity. The pursuit of our mission would have been impossible without your leadership and talent. The Citrus County community is a generous one, even in the tough economic times we face.

Letter toTHE EDITOR Lets work toward solutionsMr. (Robert) Hagamans column (of Nov. 18) was obviously well constructed, but it comes across as just another lament of a sore loser. Mitt also has whined and made excuses since then as well. I suggest we get over it and start being a part of the solution instead of perpetuating the divisiveness. As a lifelong Republican myself, I am embarrassed the best the party could come up with was Mitt Romney, but that is irrelevant now. And yes, I do blame Bush for two unwinnable wars costing trillions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives. You call it sad? I call it one of the worst decisions in American history. I blame myself as well, because I voted for him. I see many references to Republicans and Democrats. I saw no reference to the American people. This type of political partisanship is part of the problem we have, perhaps the biggest. Its a very short walk across the aisle, sir. I know of no moats between them. Arent we all Americans first and foremost? The major problem isnt a reluctance to push harder for our conservative values, Mr. Hagaman. But one of the problems is some cant get over the fact that America chose its leader and not your leader. You go on to say we shouldnt believe anything the president says because he demeans the wealthy while he is one of them. Didnt Mitt demean the 47 percent he said he wasnt worried about? He gets away with it because hes not one of them? His arrogance is demeaning to all Americans. What about those who collect Social Security? And how about those (who) collect a government pension, be it military or otherwise? If so, they are part of the 47 percent. Every American is or will be in some way part of the 47 percent. You also say he let Middle East governments be replaced by Americanhating governments. That, sir, is a ridiculous statement. What could anyone have done to stop it? Get into five or six new wars? Mr. Hagaman, Ive read your letters for years and agreed with you for the most part in the past. But your column does nothing but ambiguously blame the president for everything from grocery prices to the beliefs of the evangelicals. It is time to stop the blame and become part of the solution. The last thing America needs is half the country pointing at someone and blaming them for our problems. We need to come together as a nation to solve this. We know what the problems are. We need answers and we need solutions. Not just 1 percent or 2 percent of us, or even 47 percent of us. All of us.Mark Stoltz Inverness

Associated PressShiite Muslims re-enact the seventh century battle of Karbala during the climax of the festival of Ashoura on Sunday in the Shiite neighborhood of Sadr City in Baghdad, Iraq The festival of Ashoura commemorates the martyrdom of Imam Hussein, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala, Iraq, in the year 680 A.D. Associated PressBangladeshi firefighters, above and below, battle a fire Saturday night at a garment factory in the Savar neighborhood in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Associated PressSEATTLE Travelers heading home after the long Thanksgiving weekend had yet another reason to be thankful Sunday: favorable weather and few airport delays reported on what is traditionally the busiest travel day of the year. Although there was little elbow room on packed buses, trains and airplanes, travel appeared to be running smoothly as millions of people trekked home after feasting with family and friends. Experts predicted a slight rise in the number of people traveling this Thanksgiving weekend compared to last year. According to AAAs yearly analysis, some 43.6 million Americans were expected to journey 50 miles or more between Wednesday and Sunday, and more of them were likely to be driving while fewer were flying. Mauro Scappa and his wife, Chris, and their two children were among those who chose not to take to the skies. They braced themselves for delays as they waited at New Yorks Penn Station for a train back to Washington, near their home in Falls Church, Va. But their train was expected on time Sunday morning. We definitely wanted to avoid the airport on Thanksgiving weekend, for sure, Scappa said. Renee Kerns, her husband Mike and their two children left about 30 minutes earlier than usual to catch a flight to home to California. They anticipated longer lines at the Washington-area Dulles International Airport, but sailed through security in 10 minutes and were at their gate for their 8:30 a.m. flight to Oakland, Calif., more than an hour before their flight. It was fine, Renee Kerns said of getting through security. Added her husband: Easy, but were early. Associated PressTravelers rest Thursday in a waiting area in the domestic terminal of San Francisco International Airport in California. Battle Syrian rebels capture air baseBEIRUT Syrian rebels captured a helicopter base just outside Damascus Sunday in what an activist called a blow to the morale of the regime near President Bashar Assads seat of power. The takeover claim showed how rebels are advancing in the area of the capital, though they are badly outgunned, making inroads where Assads power was once unchallenged. Rebels have also been able to fire mortar rounds into Damascus recently. The director of the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami AbdulRahman, said rebels seized control of the Marj al-Sultan base on the outskirts of Damascus on Sunday morning. He said at least 15 rebels and eight soldiers were killed in the fighting that started a day earlier. The rebels later withdrew from the base.Suicide blasts at Nigeria base kill 11KADUNA, Nigeria Twin suicide car bombs exploded Sunday at a church inside one of Nigerias top military bases, killing at least 11 people and wounding another 30 in an embarrassing attack, showing the continued insecurity that haunts Africas most populous nation. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, but suspicion immediately fell on the radical Islamist sect known as Boko Haram, whose suicide bombers target Sunday worship services in what has become a weekly macabre routine in Nigeria. This attack in Jaji on Sunday, however, happened inside a barracks home to the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, one of the countrys most important military colleges. It also showed a new dangerous sophistication as the second explosion appeared timed to target responders rushing to aid the wounded 10 minutes after the first blast, officials said.Congo and M23 rebels negotiateKAMPALA, Uganda Congolese officials are in talks Sunday with representatives of M23, the rebel group that last week took control of the eastern Congo city of Goma, according to Ugandan officials. Ugandan Defence Minister Crispus Kiyonga said he is mediating discussions to help both sides reach a settlement that would end a violent rebellion that has sucked in Uganda and Rwanda. From wire reports World BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Thanksgiving travelers heading home Favorable weather, few delays Sunday Egypts foes dig in heels One killed, 40 hurt in protest against Morsi Associated PressCAIRO Supporters and opponents of Egypts president Sunday grew more entrenched in their potentially destabilizing battle over the Islamist leaders move to assume near-absolute powers, with neither side appearing willing to back down as the stock market plunged amid the fresh turmoil. The standoff poses one of the hardest tests for the nations liberal and secular opposition since Hosni Mubaraks ouster nearly two years ago. Failure to sustain protests and eventually force Mohammed Morsi to loosen control could consign it to longterm irrelevance. Clashes between the two sides spilled onto the streets for a third day since the president issued edicts making him immune to oversight of any kind, including from the courts. A teenager was killed and at least 40 people were wounded when a group of anti-Morsi protesters tried to storm the local offices of the political arm of the presidents Muslim Brotherhood in the Nile Delta city of Damanhoor, according to security officials. It was the first reported death from the street battles that erupted across much of the nation Friday, the day after Morsis decrees were announced. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media, identified the boy as 15-year-old Islam Hamdi Abdel-Maqsood. Tensions also dealt a fresh blow to the economy, which has suffered due to the problems plaguing the Arab worlds most populous nation since Mubaraks ouster. Egypts benchmark EGX30 stock index dropped 9.59 percentage points Sunday in the first trading session since Morsi issued his decrees. The losses were among the biggest since the turbulent days and weeks immediately after Mubaraks ouster in a popular uprising last year. The loss in the value of shares was estimated at close to $5 billion. The judiciary, the main target of the edicts, has pushed back, calling the decrees a power grab and an assault on the branchs independence. Judges and prosecutors stayed away from many courts in Cairo and other cities Sunday. Associated PressDHAKA, Bangladesh Fire raced through a garment factory that supplies major retailers in the West, killing at least 112 people, many of whom were trapped by the flames because the eight-story building lacked emergency exits, an official said Sunday. The blaze broke out late Saturday at a factory operated outside Bangladeshs capital of Dhaka by Tazreen Fashions Ltd., a subsidiary of the Tuba Group, which makes products for Walmart and other companies in the U.S. and Europe. Firefighters recovered at least 100 bodies from the factory, Maj. Mohammad Mahbub, fire department operations director, told The Associated Press. He said 12 other people who were injured after they jumped from the building to escape died at hospitals. Local media reported up to 124 people were killed. The cause of the blaze was not immediately clear, and authorities ordered an investigation. Army soldiers and border guards were sent to help police keep order as thousands of onlookers and anxious relatives of the factory workers gathered, Mahbub said. Tazreen was given a high risk safety rating after a May 16, 2011, audit conducted by an ethical sourcing assessor for Walmart, according to a document posted on the Tuba Groups website. It did not specify what led to the rating. Walmart spokesman Kevin Gardner said online documents indicating an orange or high risk assessment after the May 2011 inspection and a yellow or medium risk report after an inspection in August 2011 appeared to pertain to the factory where the fire broke out. The August 2011 letter said Walmart would conduct another inspection within one year. Gardner said it was not clear if the inspection had been conducted or whether the factory was still making products for Walmart. If a factory is rated orange three times in a two-year period, Walmart wont place any orders for one year. The May 2011 report was the first orange rating for the factory. Neither Tazreens owner nor Tuba Group officials could be reached for comment. The Tuba Group is a major Bangladeshi garment exporter whose clients also include Carrefour and IKEA, according to its website. Its factories export garments to the U.S., Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands, among other countries.

Following Clevelands 20-14 win over the rival Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, a Browns spokesman said the game was Holmgrens last with the team. The 64-year-old former coach had hoped to stay until the end of the season in an advisory role, but left open the possibility of an earlier departure. He has been replaced by new owner Jimmy Haslam with CEO Joe Banner, who spent 19 years with Philadelphia. Holmgren spoke to several players and Haslam in the locker room. He will address the media on Monday. The Browns went 12-31 under Holmgren.Noles lose DE Carradine to injuryTALLAHASSEE Defensive end Tank Carradine will miss Florida States final two games of the 2012 season with a torn knee ligament. Coach Jimbo Fisher announced the injury Sunday. Florida State plays the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game Saturday against Georgia Tech, and will play in a bowl. Carradine led Florida State (10-2, 7-1) with 80 tackles and was second on the Seminoles with 11 sacks.Auburn fires Chizik after 3-9 campaignAUBURN, Ala. Auburn has fired coach Gene Chizik. Auburn announced Sunday that Chizik was dismissed two years after leading the Tigers to their first national title since 1957. The Tigers closed with a 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama that was the second-most lopsided Iron Bowl game ever and worst since 1948. The move came after a 3-9 season without any Southeastern Conference wins. It was the most losses by an Auburn team since an 0-10 season in 1950. Chizik had three years left on a contract worth $3.5 million annually. The Tigers were outscored 150-21 in their final three SEC games. He finished 33-19 and 15-17 in SEC games.NC States OBrien fired after six yearsRALEIGH, N.C. North Carolina State has fired football coach Tom OBrien after six seasons, four of which were good enough to get the Wolfpack into a bowl but none that could get them to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Athletic director Debbie Yow made the announcement Sunday, a day after the Wolfpack finished a 7-5 regular season with a win over Boston College. During a news conference, Yow said she met with OBrien Friday to discuss the future of the program, then notified him of her decision Sunday. I told them its really fairly simple, Yow said. Coach OBrien and I agree on the goal of becoming a top-25 program. We just dont agree on what it takes to do that, how to get there. OBrien went 40-35 in Raleigh. He took the Wolfpack to three bowl games, but wont coach in a fourth when N.C. State receives its bid next week. Yow said OBriens buyout would be $1.2 million over four years. N.C. State said offensive coordinator Dana Bible will coach the bowl game.From wire reports Associated PressAtlanta Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel (22) and William Moore (25) unsuccessfully try to intercept a gameending hail mary thrown by Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman on Sunday in Tampa.

Associated PressFlorida running back Mike Gillislee scores a touchdown Saturday as Florida State linebacker Vince Williams makes the tackle during the first half in Tallahassee. Associated PressDUBAI, United Arab Emirates Rory McIlroy made five straight birdies down the stretch to overtake Justin Rose and win the Dubai World Championship on Sunday, ending a historic year in which the 23-year-old Northern Irishman won the PGA Championship and the European and PGA tour money titles. The top-ranked McIlroy recovered from early putting woes to finish at 6under 66 for a total 23-under 265 at the seasonending tournament. Rose, who was tied for seventh after three rounds, surged down the stretch into contention after shooting a course-record 62 that included an eagle and eight birdies. I just wanted to finish the season the way I thought I deserved to finish the season, McIlroy said after holing a birdie on 18 and raising his arms in the air in celebration. You know, I played so well throughout the year and I didnt want to just let it tail off sort of timidly. I wanted to come here and finish in style. Second-ranked Luke Donald (71) was tied for third with Charl Schwartzel (68) of South Africa. Louis Oosthuizen (69) was another shot back in fifth. The day was supposed to be a duel between McIlroy and Donald, who were tied for the lead after the third round. The Englishman grabbed an early two-shot lead when McIlroy bogeyed the first and Donald birdied the second. With help from Donald, McIlroy claims Dubai BRENTKALLESTAD Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A year after calling his team soft following an embarrassing home loss to Florida State, Florida coach Will Muschamp watched many of those same players rip the Seminoles 37-26 Saturday. They clinched one of the best regular seasons in school history with a win more convincing than the final 11-point victory margin. Our guys just continued to press forward, Muschamp said. We dont do excuses. We did enough of that last year. And there was no talk of being soft. Were a physical football team, Muschamp said. Thats what we pride ourselves on. The Gators impressed Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner, who was one of the few Seminoles to give Florida trouble. The way they were double-teaming Ive never seen it before, said Werner, who had 3 1/2 sacks in the game. Give credit to them. Florida (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) moved up a notch to No. 5 in The Associated Press poll with its win in Tallahassee and now awaits its bowl invitation a bit wistfully. The Gators know that only a 17-9 loss to Georgia a month ago prevents them from playing Alabama in this Saturdays SEC title game, where the winner will likely be Notre Dames opponent in the BCS national championship game Jan. 7. Muschamp and the Gators could be headed to New Orleans for a Sugar Bowl date.

Broncos 17, Chiefs 9KANSAS CITY, Mo. Peyton Manning threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns, and Denver rallied for its sixth straight win. Manning hit tight end Jacob Tamme late in the first half and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in the third quarter, and that was more than enough to overcome three field goals by the Chiefs Ryan Succop as Kansas City lost its eighth straight game. Knowshon Moreno added 85 yards rushing for the AFC West-leading Broncos (8-3). Moreno got the start in place of the injured Willis McGahee. Jamaal Charles ran for 107 yards for the Chiefs (1-10), who failed again to punch the ball into the end zone. They still havent scored a touchdown since the first quarter against Pittsburgh on Nov. 12.Bears 28, Vikings 10CHICAGO Jay Cutler threw for 188 yards and a touchdown as Chicago ended a two-game losing streak. Tied with Green Bay for the NFC North lead and just a game ahead of Minnesota (6-5) coming in, the Bears (8-3) grabbed a 25-3 halftime lead thanks to Cutlers pinpoint passing. The defense held Adrian Peterson in check early on, although he finished with 108 yards rushing. The win could prove costly. The Bears lost wide receiver Devin Hester (concussion), running back Matt Forte (ankle), cornerback Charles Tillman (ankle) and both starting guards to injuries.Colts 20, Bills 13INDIANAPOLIS T.Y. Hilton scored on a 75-yard punt return and caught an 8yard TD pass from Andrew Luck. Hilton is the first player in franchise history to score by punt return and pass reception in the same game. Indy improved to 7-4. Luck was 20 of 37 for 240 yards with a TD and an interception.Jaguars 24, Titans 19JACKSONVILLE Chad Henne threw two touchdown passes, sparking the NFLs worst offense for the second consecutive week. The Jaguars (2-9) snapped a sevengame losing streak. Henne, making his first start in more than 13 months, found Cecil Shorts III on a 59-yard touchdown play in the third quarter and hooked up with rookie Justin Blackmon for a 7-yard score in the fourth. The Titans (4-7) cut the lead to 21-19 on Jake Lockers 6-yard pass to Kenny Britt with 4:52 remaining and had the ball with a chance to take the lead. But Russell Allen tipped Lockers pass over the middle, and Dwight Lowery back on the field after a five-week absence had his first interception of the season.Dolphins 24, Seahawks 21MIAMI Dan Carpenter kicked a 43yard field goal on the final, and Miami scored 17 points in the last 8:08. Rookie Ryan Tannehill drove Miami 65 yards in the final 92 seconds to set up the winning kick. He finished 18 for 26 for 253 yards and a score. Miami (5-6) broke a three-game losing streak. The Seahawks (6-5), who are unbeaten at home this year, lost for the fifth time in six road games.Bengals 34, Raiders 10CINCINNATI Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes and Cincinnati showed its former quarterback it has moved on. BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 129 yards and a touchdown. Palmer had a tough time all-around in his return to Cincinnati, going 19 of 34 for 146 yards with four sacks and an interception. With their third straight win, the Bengals (6-5) moved back into the playoff chase. Oakland (3-8) lost its fourth in a row.49ers 31, Saints 21NEW ORLEANS Ahmad Brooks and Donte Whitner returned interceptions for touchdowns, the 49ers sacked Drew Brees five times, and San Francisco ended the New Orleans Saints threegame winning streak. Colin Kaepernick was solid in his second career start. Kaepernick passed for 231 yards, including a touchdown. He also ran for a 7-yard score. New Orleans (5-6) managed only 59 yards rushing against the 49ers (8-2-1).Rams 31, Cardinals 17GLENDALE, Ariz. Janoris Jenkins became the first player in Rams history and the first NFL rookie since 1960 to return two interceptions for touchdowns in the same game and St. Louis dominated the second half to hand the Arizona Cardinals their seventh loss in a row. Sam Bradford had a pair of 37-yard touchdown passes for the Rams (4-6-1), who snapped a five-game winless streak.Ravens 16, Chargers 13 (OT)SAN DIEGO Justin Tucker kicked a 38-yard field with 1:07 left in overtime to complete a stunning comeback for the Baltimore Ravens, who beat the staggering San Diego Chargers. San Diego (4-7) led 13-3 with 7:51 to go in regulation and seemed headed for a win, but the Ravens converted on fourthand-29 when Ray Rice caught a short pass from Joe Flacco and weaved through the defense with 1:37 to play. Six plays later, Tucker kicked a 38-yard field goal to tie the game as regulation expired. The Ravens (9-2) won their fourth straight and for the eighth time in nine games. The Chargers (4-7) were pushed closer to being eliminated from the playoff picture. Asssociated PressCleveland Browns linebacker DQwell Jackson (52) and cornerback Joe Haden break up a pass to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace on Sunday in the fourth quarter in Cleveland. The tipped ball was recovered by Browns defensive tackle Billy Winn. Associated PressCLEVELAND They didnt look like themselves at all. Not with the turnovers, penalties and blown chances. These werent the Pittsburgh Steelers of old. And it had little to do with their 37-year-old quarterback. That was an ugly performance, coach Mike Tomlin said. With their playoff lives in peril, the Steelers committed eight turnovers and third-string QB Charlie Batch didnt do enough to overcome the miscues as Pittsburgh lost 20-14 to Cleveland on Sunday, giving the Browns a rare win over their hated rivals. When you turn the ball over the way we did, youre not going to beat anybody, Tomlin said. We were highly penalized. When you do those things, youre going to lose I dont care who is playing quarterback. Batch, forced to start because of injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, threw three interceptions and the Steelers (6-5) lost five fumbles, the last on a desperation final-play lateral as they fell to the Browns (3-8) for just the second time in 18 games. Batch finished 20 of 34 for 199 yards, but couldnt rally the stumbling Steelersthe way Big Ben can. I have to put it on my shoulders, Batch said. We had a chance to win, actually two, and I turned it over. Cant do that. I made some bad throws. We had all the fumbles, and yet we still had a chance to win, thats the crazy part. Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden sustained a concussion in the final minutes, allowing backup Colt McCoy to come in and finish off a victory Cleveland fans will savor long after this season ends. Coach Pat Shurmur said the 29-year-old Weeden was being treated for the head injury, which happened when he hit his head while throwing an incompletion. Browns rookie Trent Richardson rushed for 85 yards, scoring the goahead TD on a 15-yard run in the third. For one of the few times in recent years, Cleveland finally won a close game. And this one pleased new owner Jimmy Haslam, who had a minority share of the Steelers before buying the Browns for $1.05 billion in August. Haslam enjoyed not seeing Terrible Towels waving after the game. Ive seen it the other way around, Haslam said. Its good to see their fans leaving and our fans staying and cheering. It was a great win for us. Its nice for me, but its bigger for our coaches and our players. It also sent president Mike Holmgren out on a winning note. After the game, the Browns announced that it was the final game for Holmgren, who has been replaced by new CEO Joe Banner. NFL CAPSULES Browns beat sloppy Steelers, but lose QB Weeden to concussion incomplete in the end zone with no time remaining. The win enabled the Falcons (10-1) to keep pace with Houston for the NFL s best record. Doug Martin scored on a pair of 1-yard run for the Bucs, however the rookie who began the day leading the NFL in total yards from scrimmage was limited to 50 yards rushing on 21 carries. Barth kicked field goals of 22, 42, and 48 yards, the latter giving the Bucs their six-point lead after cornerback E.J. Biggers sacked Ryan to force a fumble. Ryan threw a second-quarter interception his sixth pick in two weeks that led to Barths field goal that made it 10-10 at the half. Ryan completed 26 of 32 passes, including four straight on the drive that Turner finished with his TD run. Jacquizz Rodgers had a 5-yard TD run in the first quarter, and Jones finished with six receptions for 147 yards despite playing on a sore right ankle that limited him in practice. Ryan started the game with 10 straight completions before Ronde Barbers interception and 28-yard return to the Atlanta 31 led to Barths first field goal. The Falcons drove to the Tampa Bay 4 in the closing seconds of the half, but wasted an opportunity to regain the lead when Matt Bryant hooked a 22-yard field-goal attempt wide left as time expired. The Atlanta kicker missed a 48-yarder with 8 seconds left, giving the Bucs one more chance to pull out what would have been their first signature victory under firstyear coach Greg Schiano. Atlanta struck quickly after Barths second field goal put Tampa Bay up 13-10. Ryan found Jones racing up the right sideline, and the receiver broke free from cornerback Leonard Johnson to continue into the end zone. The Bucs regained the lead when Martin scored his second TD on the first play of the fourth quarter. Freeman finished 19 of 30 for 256 yards. Vincent Jackson had five catches for 96 yards. Atlanta converted six of eight first downs and outgained the Bucs 239 yards to 105 in the opening half, yet it was 10-10 at the break because the Falcons settled for a field goal after holding the ball for more than seven minutes of its first scoring drive.

San Jose St.28118.041027105.071221.1800.0974NR Associated PressNEW YORK Two years before the playoffs start in college football, the Southeastern Conference is staging a semifinal to determine who plays Notre Dame in the BCS title game. Alabama (.9236) was second and Georgia (.8911) third in the BCS standings released Sunday. The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs play Saturday in Atlanta for the SEC championship. The winner will advance to the national championship game in Miami on Jan. 7 against the Fighting Irish (.9979), who locked up their spot Saturday with a 22-13 victory against Southern California. If you think about what the game means, this that and the other, it doesnt really help you win the game, Georgia coach Mark Richt said. The only thing that helps you win the game is preparation and getting your mind ready to go to battle. Thats what youve got to do. Florida (.8882) is fourth in the standings, but with no games left, looks stuck behind their SEC rivals. The Bowl Championship Series is in its second-to-last season. It will be replaced by a four-team playoff in 2014. While the race for the BCS title game is now fairly straightforward heading into championship weekend in college football, theres some intrigue to watch for involving potential BCS busters. Kent State is 17th in the standings and Northern Illinois is 21st. Theyll meet in the Mid-American Conference championship game on Friday night in Detroit. Because it is almost a certainty that the Big East champion Louisville and Rutgers will determine who that is on Thursday night in New Jersey will be ranked behind the MAC champion in the final BCS standings, if either Kent State or NIU can get into the top 16, they would receive an automatic BCS bid. The MAC has never sent a team to the BCS. Neither Louisville nor Rutgers is in the BCS top 25 this week. Boise State from the Mountain West is 20th in the standings and also still in the mix for that BCS buster bid if it can jump ahead of the MAC teams and into the first 16. The Broncos play Nevada on Saturday to earn a share of the MW title. Oregon is fifth in the latest standings, and like Florida, done with its regular season and in good shape to receive an at-large BCS bid. SEC set to play host to BCS semifinal Associated PressNotre Dame is No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 with nothing left to do but wait to find out its opponent for the national championship game. Toward the bottom of the rankings, there was plenty of movement. Ten Top 25 teams lost this weekend, the most since Oct. 11, 2003, but for the most part the national championship race was unchanged. No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia, both easy winners in rivalry games Saturday, held their spots in the rankings. They will play for the SEC title in Atlanta next weekend. The winner is pretty much a lock to move on to Miami for the BCS championship game on Jan. 7, trying to extend the Southeastern Conferences string of six straight titles. But will the right SEC team be getting a shot? Florida coach Will Muschamp doesnt think so. We should be playing for the national championship, he said after the Gators beat Florida State 37-26 in Tallahassee, Fla., on Saturday. Hes got a point. The Gators (11-1) checked in at No. 4 in the AP poll this week, up one spot. Their lone loss was to Georgia and it was enough to settle the SEC East in the Bulldogs favor. But playing in the same division doesnt mean playing the same competition. Not even close in these days of expanding conferences. The Gators have clearly played a tougher schedule than the Bulldogs. The Sagarin computer ratings have Floridas strength of schedule at 13th in the nation. Georgias is 42nd. Alabamas is 39th, by the way, but lets keep the focus on Florida and Georgia because they played each other. Florida also played No. 9 LSU and No. 10 Texas A&M as its two SEC West opponents, combined record 204. Georgia played Auburn and Mississippi from the west, combined record 9-15. On Saturday, both Florida and Georgia played their toughest nonconference games. The Gators beat Florida State (10-2). The Bulldogs routed Georgia Tech (6-6). Both teams played No. 11 South Carolina, the Easts other beast. Florida beat the Gamecocks 44-11. South Carolina beat Georgia 35-7. Remember it was Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier who suggested in the preseason that only division records determine division winners after South Carolina was in similar position to Florida last year. Of course, the Bulldogs can point to the scoreboard, the one that read Georgia 17, Florida 9 in Jacksonville, Fla., back on Oct. 27. But its a strange situation and one that will repeat itself around the country as conferences grow and college football implements a four-team playoff in a couple of years. Georgia and Florida had a race. The Bulldogs won, but the Gators had to cover more ground.

Giants at Washington, 8:30 p.m. Against Eagles, Panthers look good Associated PressPHILADELPHIA With a rookie quarterback and a running back making his first start since high school, the Philadelphia Eagles will try for their first win in two months. No wonder even the Carolina Panthers (2-8) are favored on the road. The struggling Eagles (37) have lost six straight games entering Monday nights matchup against Cam Newton and the Panthers. They wont have Michael Vick or LeSean McCoy because of concussions, increasing the chances they can go 0 for October and November for the first time in coach Andy Reids 14-year tenure. Oddsmakers have listed the Panthers as 3-point favorites, a rare occurrence for a team with the worst record in the conference. Perhaps the underdog role will get the Eagles going. Nothing else has worked in a season that began with Super Bowl expectations. Obviously nobody wants to play the way weve been playing, nobody wants to coach the way weve been coaching, Reid said. We dont want that. We owe it to each other, we owe it to this city to play better. As long as guys own up to that, coaches and players, thats the way you get better and then you work on the things that youre not doing well. Get yourself right. Nick Foles will be under center, making his second start in a row for Vick. Bryce Brown, a seventhround pick who had just 104 carries in college, takes over for McCoy. I expect the other guys to step up and play, Reid said. Its a great opportunity for them. Thats the way you approach it and you cut it loose and you play. Foles, a third-round pick, has a chance to show whether he can be Philadelphias quarterback of the future. Vick could be part of a massive offseason overhaul and fans have been calling for Foles to start since his impressive preseason. Foles has been so-so in the past two games, compiling a passer rating of just 58.9. Like Vick, hes had the misfortune of playing behind a banged-up offensive line. I have to play within myself and understand whats coming at me, and make the best decision, Foles said. This is my second start and the third game Ive played in. Hopefully as things go on, it starts slowing down. Ive felt more comfortable this week at practice, so its just trusting myself in the game and getting into a rhythm. The Panthers prepared all week for Vick and Foles. They learned that Vick would be out after their final practice but before their Sunday walkthrough. I think Nick Foles is athletic enough to give you some problems, Carolina coach Ron Rivera said. While the Eagles are banged-up, the Panthers are close to full strength. They have no significant injuries, but are switching things up on the offensive line. Gary Williams, signed on Nov. 14, will start at right guard over Jeff Byers. Carolina also has a new kicker, Graham Gano. If this game comes down to a kick at the end, Gano thrives in those situations. He tied an NFL record with three overtime field goals for the Washington Redskins in 2010. Thats what every kicker dreams of. If you dont want that pressure, something is wrong with you, Gano said. I love those situations. I hope every game comes down to that. This will be a coaching reunion of sorts for Reid, Rivera and Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. Rivera was Philadelphias linebackers coach under Reid from 1999-2003. McDermott spent 10 seasons with the Eagles, including his final two as the defensive coordinator in 2009-10. Smart. Good person. Good people skills. Good football coach, Reid said of Rivera. At that time, he knew the linebacker position well and did a good job for us here. McDermott had big shoes to fill in Philadelphia. He replaced Jim Johnson, a defensive guru who passed away in July 2009. The transition didnt go too smoothly and McDermott was fired after two seasons. It was great for him to get another opportunity, and hes doing a nice job, Reid said. Associated PressPhiladelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles walks across the field during the second half Nov. 18 in Landover, Md. Associated PressATLANTA Jimbo Fisher said Sunday the team that wins the ACC championship may be the one that does the best job of moving past a crushing loss to its top in-state rival. Florida State dropped three spots to No. 13 in Sundays Associated Press Top 25 following a 37-26 loss to Florida. Fishers Seminoles (10-2) play Georgia Tech, which must regroup following a lopsided 42-10 loss to Georgia, in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship on Saturday. The winner will play in the Orange Bowl. Even with so much on the line, its not easy to quickly recover from a loss in a state rivalry game. I dont think theres any doubt, Fisher said. They had a great rivalry game and we did too. Youve got to be able to put it behind you quickly and go on. I think that is going to be a big factor, I dont think theres any doubt. Its an unlikely matchup. Georgia Tech is only 6-6 overall but won the Coastal Division with a 5-3 ACC record as Miami self-imposed a bowl ban for the second straight year as it hopes to lessen possible penalties from an ongoing NCAA investigation. Miami, also 5-3 in the ACC, would have won a tiebreaker with Georgia Tech for the Coastal Division title if not for the self-imposed ban. Fisher said the Seminoles will be without one of their top defensive players, senior defensive end Cornellius Tank Carradine, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against Florida. Hes sad. Hes down, Fisher said. He cant be with his teammates. Fisher said he hasnt decided on a new starter. Options include freshmen Giorgio Newberry and Mario Edwards. Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson has lost four straight games to Georgia after beating the Bulldogs in his first season. The Yellow Jackets, who have struggled on defense all season, have had to bounce back from other ugly losses this season, including a 49-28 loss to Middle Tennessee State which cost defensive coordinator Al Groh his job. Johnson said his defense may have hit a new low against Georgia. You never know. You hope that well bounce back, Johnson said Sunday. Weve got another great opportunity. Im sure Florida State is fighting some of the same thing today following their game against Florida. Its unfortunate it happened like that, but well do the best we can to move on. In ACC title game, a battle of bested rivals

We have to put this (Florida loss) behind us, said Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, who lost to a Florida school for the first time as a head coach. Fisher is 3-0 against Miami, 1-0 against South Florida and now 2-1 in the Florida rivalry. They controlled the line of scrimmage. ... They made more plays than us, Fisher said. We have to move on and get better. And whereas it had been Florida State with much of the preseason attention after wins over Florida and Notre Dame to finish the 2011 season, Florida stealthily climbed the polls with road wins at Texas A&M, Tennessee and Vanderbilt along with home victories over LSU and South Carolina. While the Gators were pulling out close victories against a difficult schedule, Florida State was putting up big numbers on both sides of the ball against the likes of Savannah State, Murray State and a group of mediocre ACC opponents. The Seminoles went into Saturdays game with just one victory over a ranked team, Clemson, and only two over schools with winning records. And Florida made them pay. GATORSContinued from Page B1 But then Donald threeputted the third to end a streak of 102 holes on the Earth Course without a bogey to give McIlroy a chance. He then had another bogey on No. 12 to fall three back and never challenged after that, missing the green on the 17th to end his chances. In the meantime, Rose was climbing up the leaderboard. The Englishman pulled within one of McIlroy with a birdie and then moved ahead with an eagle on No. 14 after his approach shot rolled to within 10 feet. He sank it for his first lead of the tournament and doubled his advantage when McIlroy three-putted on the 13th. Rose had another birdie before his 60-foot eagle putt came within inches of the cup on No. 18, and he settled for birdie. Then, he had to wait. I thought it was going to be good, to be honest, Rose said. I caught a glimpse of the board walking to the 18th tee. I saw Rory had gone birdie, birdie, and hes putting the squeeze on. But I knew that is what Rory does. At No. 17, McIlroy hit what was probably the shot of his tournament, landing a 5-iron within a few feet of the pin. You could easily be a lot right into the bunker and leave yourself a tricky upand-down, he said. I committed to it and hit a great shot and followed it with a great putt for birdie to give myself that cushion going into the last. GOLFContinued from Page B1 Associated PressSAO PAULO Sebastian Vettel overcame a first-lap crash to capture his third straight Formula One championship title Sunday, finishing sixth in a Brazilian Grand Prix filled with crashes and won by Jenson Button under pouring rain. Vettel became the youngest three-time champion in Formula One at age 25. Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, F1s most successful driver, finished seventh in his final race after 19 seasons. Vettel appeared in big trouble after he was bumped into shortly after the first lap and spun. The German dropped to last place before he could turn his car around and start a difficult pursuit. But he steadily worked his way up the field and did what he had to holding off Ferraris Fernando Alonso, the only other driver contending for the title. Alonso had a superb start on a hectic first lap at Interlagos and finished second, but that wasnt enough to erase Vettels 13-point lead in the standings. Alonsos Ferrari teammate Felipe Massa was third in front of his home crowd, and cried on the podium after finishing a difficult season on a high note. Lewis Hamilton was leading in his final race with McLaren when Nico Hulkenberg crashed into him while trying to pass on a slippery track with 17 laps to go. The race was dramatic from the start but had an anticlimactic finish behind the safety car after Paul Di Resta crashed just before the final lap. Vettel wins third straight F1 title Associated PresNew York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks attempts to catch a pass in the end zone Sunday during the second half in East Rutherford, N.J. Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes in the game and The Giants beat the Packers 38-10. Giants clobber Packers Sports BRIEFS Amateur Jake Higginbottom wins New Zealand OpenCHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand Australian teenager Jake Higginbottom became the first amateur to win the New Zealand Open since Harry Berwick in 1956, closing with a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory Sunday. The 19-year-old Higginbottom also become the second amateur winner in the last three Australasian Tour events. Fellow Australian teen Oliver Goss won the Western Australia Open on Oct. 28 at Royal Perth, beating Brady Watt also an amateur on the fifth hole of a playoff. Higginbottom finished at 7-under 281 on the Clearwater course. Australias Jason Norris and Peter Wilson tied for second. Norris shot a 66, and Wilson had a 68. After making four birdies in a five-hole stretch to take the lead, Higginbottom bogeyed the par-3 16th to fall in a tie with Wilson and Norris. The amateur birdied the par-4 17th to reclaim the lead and closed with a two-putt par on the difficult par-4 18th.Argonauts beat Stampeders 35-22 to win Grey CupTORONTO Chad Owens, Pacino Horne and Dontrelle Inman scored in the first half and the Toronto Argonauts beat the Calgary Stampeders 35-22 on Sunday in the 100th Grey Cup. Andre Durie added a touchdown in the second half for the Argonauts, who built a 24-6 halftime lead and never trailed while playing in front of a loud home crowd of 53,208 at Rogers Centre. Toronto earned its 16th Grey Cup title and first since 2004. The Argonauts got off to a fast start behind Owens, who had a 5-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter. The score came after Jon Cornish fumbled an exchange with quarterback Kevin Glenn to give Toronto the ball on the Stampeders 45. Toronto put the game away a 7-yard TD pass by Ricky Ray to Durie with 5:22 left in the game. Ray, obtained last December in a blockbuster trade with Edmonton, was 18 for 30 for 231 yards.From wire reports

BASKETBALLCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2012 B5 Nelson scored on a driving layup to trim it to three and the Magic got the ball back after Rondo came up with air on a 21-footer as the shot clock wound down. But Nelson fired up an off balance 3 on Orlandos ensuing touch, and following a foul, Garnett connected 1 of 2 free throws on the other end to make it 114-110 to lock up the victory. It was a disappointing finish for what was a masterful second half by Nelson in which he carried the Magic nearly singlehandedly with 17 points in the final two quarters and overtime. Nelson scored the Magics final eight points of the third quarter, including a fade away jumper to end the period to give the Magic a two-point edge entering the fourth. The lead grew as big as seven on a 3-pointer by Arron Afflalo with just over eight minutes remaining. The Celtics werent deterred, though, and immediately went in a 10-2 run to take the lead back at 98-97. Redick tied it again at 100 with a 3-pointer, but couldnt connect on a lob to Afflalo after chasing down a loose ball. The Celtics returned the favor with a turnover of their own, leading to a driving layup by Glen Davis. Boston quickly tied it again, and collected a rebound on its next possession after a missed jumper by Nelson with 30.4 left. After a Celtics timeout, Garnett missed an open jumper just inside the free throw line, but the ball caromed off a Magic player giving them another chance. But Pierce missed a leaning jumper at the buzzer to send it to overtime. The Celtics scored 13 points off nine Magic turnovers in the first half and led by as many as 12. When Orlando wasnt giving Boston easy baskets in transition, Rondo was a facilitating for his teammates in the half court. He dished out nine assists to go along with 10 points in the half, missing only two of his seven shots from the field. For the half, the Celtics also had a 30-16 scoring advantage in the paint. NOTES: Rondo has now had at least 10 assists in 37 consecutive games. ... The Magic lost for the first time this season when they score 100 or more points. ...Celtics coach Doc Rivers said there are some similarities in years rebuilding Magic team and the Heart and Hustle team he coached his first season in Orlando in 1999-00. Rivers took over that season following a major roster upheaval and led the Magic to a 41-41 mark, just missing the playoffs. I think it was (Pat) Riley that said the hardest thing about playing us, was you couldnt practice effort, Rivers said. I tell my team that now, that you cant practice it, you have to mentally prepare for it. And to me when you watch them, thats why they win games. MAGICContinued from Page B1 Associated PressBLOOMINGTON, Ind. Will Sheehey scored 19 points to help No. 1 Indiana defeat Ball State 101-53 on Sunday.

Carter-Williams, who had six rebounds and just one turnover, missed the only shot he attempted in the first half. But he assisted on nine of the Oranges first 10 baskets, giving him a real shot at challenging the school record for assists in a game. Sherman Douglas had 22 against Providence in January 1989. Pearl Washington had 18 against St. Johns during the 1983-84 season, and Douglas was among five players to notch 14 in a game.

Today is Monday, Nov. 26, the 331st day of 2012. There are 35 days left in the year. Todays Highlights: On Nov. 26, 1942, the motion picture Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, had its world premiere at the Hollywood Theater in New York. On this date: In 1789, Nov. 26 was a day of thanksgiving set aside by President George Washington to observe the adoption of the Constitution of the United States. In 1842, the founders of the University of Notre Dame arrived at the schools present-day site near South Bend, Ind. In 1933, a judge in New York decided the James Joyce book Ulysses was not obscene and could be published in the United States. In 1973, President Richard Nixons personal secretary, Rose Mary Woods, told a federal court shed accidentally caused part of the 18 1/2-minute gap in a key Watergate tape. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan appointed a commission headed by former Sen. John Tower to investigate his National Security Council staff in the wake of the IranContra affair. In 1992, the British government announced Queen Elizabeth II had volunteered to start paying taxes on her personal income, and would take her children off the public payroll. Ten years ago: A United Nations report said for the first time in the 20-year history of the AIDS epidemic, about as many women as men were infected with HIV. Five years ago: President Bush greeted the 2007 Nobel Prize winners including former Vice President Al Gore in the Oval Office.

Singer Tina Turner is 73. Singer Jean Terrell is 68. Thought for Today: The difference between the men and the boys in politics is, and always has been, that the boys want to be something, while the men want to do something. Eric Sevareid (1912-1992). DAVIDGERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Bella Swan, James Bond and Abe Lincoln have combined to lift Hollywood to record Thanksgiving revenue at the box office. Kristen Stewarts finale as Bella in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was No. 1 again with $64 million during the five-day holiday stretch that began Wednesday, according to studio estimates Sunday. Daniel Craigs Bond adventure Skyfall came in at No. 2 with $51 million, while Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielbergs Civil War saga Lincoln finished third with $34.1 million. According to box-office tracker Hollywood.com, the three films paced Hollywood to an all-time Thanksgiving week best of about $290 million from Wednesday to Sunday. That tops the previous record of $273 million over Thanksgiving in 2009, when The Twilight Saga: New Moon led the weekend. This Thanksgiving also was a huge 25 percent jump from a year ago, when domestic revenues were a weak $232 million as some big holiday releases fizzled. With a strong December lineup ahead, Hollywood has resumed its record revenue pace for the year after a brief boxoffice lull in late summer and early fall. Domestic revenues for 2012 are at $9.75 billion, putting Hollywood potentially on track for its first $11 billion year, which would beat the 2009 record of $10.6 billion, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Were barreling toward a record-breaking box-office year, Dergarabedian said. Its built on the back of just a lot of really strong movies that have come out over the past few weekends. It bodes very well for the rest of the holidays. The Twilight finale, Skyfall and Lincoln finished in the same top-three rankings for the second-straight weekend as new releases were unable to dislodge the holdovers. Released by Lionsgates Summit Entertainment banner, Breaking Dawn Part 2, pulled in $43.1 million from Friday to Sunday, raising its domestic total to $227 million. The movie added $97.4 million overseas to bring its international total to $350.8 million and its worldwide take to $577.7 million. Sonys Skyfall also topped $200 million domestically, ringing up $36 million for the threeday weekend to put its U.S. total at $221.7 million. With $41.3 million more overseas, Skyfall raised its international revenues to $568.4 million and its worldwide sales to $790.1 million. Lincoln, a DreamWorks film distributed by Disney, took in $25 million over the weekend to lift its domestic revenue to $62.2 million. Leading the newcomers was Paramount and DreamWorks Animations tale Rise of the Guardians at No. 4 with $24 million for the weekend and $32.6 million since opening Wednesday. Based on William Joyces Guardians of Childhood books, Rise of the Guardians gathers Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and other mythical beings as a team of heroes battling an evil overlord. Close behind at No. 5 was director Ang Lees shipwreck saga Life of Pi at No. 5 with $22 million over the weekend. The 20th Century Fox release has taken in $30.2 million domestically since its Wednesday debut and added $17.5 million in four Asian markets. Life of Pi was adapted from Yann Martels best-selling novel about an Indian youth adrift on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger. Many fans considered the introspective novel impossible to film, but Lee has charmed audiences and critics with an inspiring survival story told through dazzling 3-D images. The weekends other new wide release, a remake of the 1980s U.S.-invasion tale Red Dawn, opened at No. 7 with $14.6 million, raising its total to $22 million since debuting Wednesday. Red Dawn sat on the shelf for three years while studio backer MGM went through bankruptcy, with distributor FilmDistrict eventually picking it up for domestic release. The movies cast includes Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) in a story of young guerrillas battling North Korean invaders. In limited release, Fox Searchlights Hitchcock opened solidly with about $300,000 in 17 theaters. The movie stars Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock in a behindthe-scenes story of the making of Psycho. The weekends overall strength came from a broad range of films that clicked with various audiences, from action and family fare to thoughtful drama. This is a marketplace that has something for everyone, said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox. You have something deeper like Life of Pi, yet you have a very successful sequel in Twilight at the same time. Adult biodrama, if you will, in Lincoln, and you have Bond. Thats the secret to a very successful and balanced marketplace.Bella, Bond and Abe Birthday Much-needed improvements in your financial affairs could be in the offing during coming months. Although the upswing might be a bit slow to start, once you get it on track, itll gain the desired momentum. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Establish an agenda and do your best to adhere to it. Unless you put some kind of plan together, you could get into trouble when trying to cut corners. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) While in your presence, a couple of friends might put down an absent friend. Under no circumstances should you contribute to the bash-fest. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Details could be of unusual importance when it comes to your big objectives. A failure to read the fine print and double-check everything could deprive you of the success you usually enjoy. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) There are very few things that would invite as many complications as being a copycat. Methods that worked well for another might cause you big trouble, and damage your reputation to boot. Aries (March 21-April 19) Guard against temptation to spend money on something previously proven to be wasteful. Dont be misled twice you cant afford it. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Although you might feel impelled to make a difficult decision, dont do so impulsively. Take plenty of time to study the matter first, weighing all of your alternatives. Gemini (May 21-June 20) A poor attitude will work to your detriment if youre not careful. You could easily make a problematical assignment even more difficult than it already is. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Be extremely careful not to come on too strong in your business and personal matters. Even if your input is well intended, your associates might feel youre trying to dominate them. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your respect for authority figures could appear to be nonexistent if youre not careful. Be as diplomatic as possible when dealing with persons who have a lot of clout. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If someone should ask you to deliver a message, take precautions and write it down. Your memory might not be up to its usual strength, and you may lose something in translation. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont trust important instructions to your memory. Your recall might not be as flawless as you think, and if not, you could land in a lot of trouble. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Cooperativeness is always important, but its especially essential in your current oneon-one relationships. If you lack the ability to work well with others, it could cause needless problems.

FloridaLOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning n umbers, Page B4 .ENTERTAINMENT Page B6MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 Associated PressLONDON The Rolling Stones made a triumphant return to the London stage Sunday night in the first of five concerts to mark the 50th anniversary of their debut as an American-oriented blues band. They showed no signs of wear and tear except on their aging, heavily lined faces as frontman Mick Jagger swaggered and strutted through a stellar 2 1/2 hour show. He looked remarkably trim and fit and was in top vocal form. The Stones passed the halfcentury mark in style at the sometimes emotional gig that saw former bassist Bill Wyman and guitar master Mick Taylor join their old mates in front of a packed crowd at Londons 02 Arena. It was the first of five mega-shows to mark the passage of 50 years since the band first appeared in a small London pub determined to pay homage to the masters of American blues. Jagger, in skin-tight black pants, a black shirt and a sparkly tie, took time out from singing to thank the crowd for its loyalty. Its amazing that were still doing this, and its amazing that youre still buying our records and coming to our shows, he said. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Lead guitarist Keith Richards, whose survival has surprised many who thought he would succumb to drugs and drink, was blunter: We made it, he said. Im happy to see you. Im happy to see anybody. But the bands fiery music was no joke, fuelled by an incandescent guest appearance by Taylor, who played lead guitar on a stunning extended version of the ominous Midnight Rambler, and Mary J. Blige, who shook the house in a duet with Jagger on Gimme Shelter. The 50th anniversary show, which will be followed by one more in London, then three in the New York area, lacked some of the bands customary bravado the worlds greatest rock n roll band intro was shelved and there were some rare nostalgic touches. Even the famously taciturn Wyman briefly cracked a smile when trading quips with Richards and Ronnie Wood. The concert started with a brief video tribute from luminaries like Elton John, Iggy Pop and Johnny Depp, who praised the Stones for their audacity and staying power.Rolling Stones mark 50th year with London show CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE TodaysHOROSCOPE Associated PressMick Jagger, center, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, left, and Charlie Watts, back, of The Rolling Stones perform at the O2 arena Sunday in east London.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2012 B7 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.For the next two-plus weeks, lets look at some of the best bridge books published in the last year. First, we have The Contested Auction by Roy Hughes (Master Point Press), the International Bridge Press Associations book of the year. In more than 300 pages, Hughes gives a comprehensive analysis of competitive bidding. However, be aware that it is not intended for inexperienced players. This deal from the book occurred during the 2011 Bermuda Bowl in the Netherlands. If Lorenzo Lauria from Italy (West) had doubled two hearts, it would have been negative, not penalty. After he passed, Alfredo Versace (East) reopened with a double, showing short hearts. West was happy to pass. Two hearts doubled can be taken down six! North, though, redoubled for rescue. When South bid three clubs, West passed to see if his partner wanted to double for penalty, which East was very happy to do. The defense was excellent, although declarer could have done better. West led the club ace, then shifted to his diamond. East won with his jack and played three more rounds of clubs, West discarding hearts. Now South would have done best to lead a low spade from the dummy. But he played the spade king. East took his ace and returned a spade to the nine and queen. The next spade went to the six and West cashed two more winners in the suit. South got dummys last trump and his heart ace for down five, minus 1,400. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Drugs, Inc.

Thomas left after graduation to live in another state. I know he has schizophrenia, and Im willing to take the risk. Even though Im 18 and still in high school, I plan to become a doctor. Ive done research and know what Im up against. Thomas says he hears voices and sees dark figures, and he snaps sometimes, but it seems like he can refocus once I get him to concentrate on me. Last Thursday, Thomas broke up with me. He apologized for breaking my heart, but he says his schizophrenia is getting worse, and he fears hes going to hurt me. Annie, Thomas knows I love him and would do anything for him. I gave up sleep and time to make sure he knows Im always here. I listen to him and hold him close when he gets upset. I never get mad at him. We have never fought. I dont want to lose him again. That happened once, and we didnt speak for three whole years! I dont want to go through that emotional turmoil again. I know people say Im too young to understand what love is, but I believe I have a good idea. I need advice. Terri Dear Terri: Thomas is telling you his schizophrenia is not under control, and he justifiably worries that he could hurt you or himself. Is he taking antipsychotic medication? He will need to do this for the rest of his life, and there are side effects. Schizophrenics also have an increased risk of drug and alcohol abuse. This is a lot of responsibility for anyone to take on. We dont doubt that you care deeply for Thomas, but you may be romanticizing your ability to save him. And your determination to have a relationship creates pressure that he apparently cant handle. Please put his welfare first and simply be his friend with no other expectation, and encourage him to stick with appropriate medical treatment. Dear Annie: Our son is marrying a beautiful woman from Mexico. The cost of the flights are more than his siblings can afford, not to mention the hotel, dresses, tuxes, showers, parties, etc. But we will help our kids because we know our son would be hurt if they didnt attend. The brides family may put us up at the hotel, which would be nice, but I dont want us to look like moochers. Do we still offer to pay for the rehearsal dinner? We have told our son how much money we can give them for a wedding gift, and all of this will deplete nearly all of our savings. Any advice? Need a Money Tree Dear Need: Please dont spend more than you can afford. Tell your son you have a budget that will have to cover all costs, including the rehearsal dinner. If it costs more, he will need to pay for it himself. Its OK to accept the offer from the brides family to put you up at a hotel. And it is not unreasonable to suggest to your son that he and his new bride have a reception later in your hometown for his siblings and other friends. We hope he can be reasonable instead of being hurt. Dear Annie: This is in response to Frustrated Dad, whose son plays video games all night and sleeps all day. Our son was the same. When things crashed, it turned out he was hiding vodka, drinking all night and sleeping all day. We had no idea our son was an alcoholic. Dad might want to check whether there is always a big bottle of mouthwash around Dad Whos Been Down that Path Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Unfortunately, Trixie has a mammary cancer and has been deemed inoperable, although the vets have said she may have another year to live. We are seeking a very kind, compassionate individual or family who would be willing to foster Trixie until her time comes. She still is lively and affectionate, interacts well with other dogs, loves people, and shows that she still wants life. She would be provided free of charge with medication and food. When her time comes, she would be euthanized at the shelter free of charge. Once again, I say that she is a very sweet dog, who does not seem to know her condition, and we truly want her to live her last months in a home, not in a shelter. Is there someone out there who would be willing to provide this sweet girl with comfort for her last months of life? Please call Joanne @352-795-1288 or Donna @ 352-249-7801.
