Bush remains in stable condition in his third week of hospitalization in Houston for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough. Methodist Hospital spokesman George Kovacik said Sunday there was no change in the 88-year-old Bushs condition. Doctors have said over the past several days that the 41st president continues to improve but theyre in no hurry to release him. Bush was admitted to the hospital the day after Thanksgiving. Bush and his wife, Barbara, divide their time, spending winters in Houston and summers in Kennebunkport, Maine. From wire reports M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS All along theyve said the right thing. Even before Duke Energy became Progress Energys parent company on July 2, Citrus Countys economic leaders embraced the new corporation, hoping to continue a friendly partnership that thrived with Progress and its predecessor, Florida Power Corporation. Commissioner Joe Meek, who heads the county Economic Development Council, reached out to Duke President Jim Rogers with a phone call welcoming Duke to the community. Economic leaders from the company and the county met to discuss the countys strengths and potentials. With the uncertainty of Duke repairing or abandoning the nuclear power plant north of Crystal River, Meek wanted to build a relationship with the new company. He probably didnt envision a day when fellow Commissioner John JJ Kenney would refer to Duke as a bunch of thugs. County officials are reeling from Progress Energy Floridas decision to pay $19.3 million for its 2012 taxes. County officials say the amount owed is closer to $36 million, leaving the school board and county government millions of dollars in the hole well after the fiscal year began. Meek made a direct public plea last week to Rogers to pay the full tax bill, even while the company filed suit against Property Appraiser Geoff Greene over WHAT: County commission/school board joint meeting. WHEN: 10 a.m. today. WHERE: College of Central Florida, Lecanto. PURPOSE: Discuss the Progress Energy tax legal issue. Officials still hopeful for amicable relationship with Duke, but not at a cost to Citrus Ponce Perone swiftly makes his way through the kitchen with a tray of hot biscuits fresh from the oven. A tip from Perone: When it comes to biscuit dough, Lumps are good, he says. You dont want to mix biscuits or pie crust too much. MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Ponce Perone, baker at Joes Family Restaurant, pours chocolate chips into his batter in the restaurants kitchen. Perone has b een a baker in Citrus County since 1988. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writer INVERNESS W hile most of the world sleeps, bakers are up to their elbows in flour. For Ponce Peron, baking is more than just a job its a talent and a calling Ponce Peron rises hours before dawn to start work by 2 a.m. First things first, however. First, he puts a pot of coffee on. Then comes the flour lots of flour. I think its in my blood, he said.

Spokesmen for both Obama and Boehner said they agreed to not release details of the conversation, but emphasized that the lines of communication remain open. The meeting comes as the White House and Congress try to break an impasse over finding a way to stop a combination of automatic tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to kick in at the beginning of next year. Obama met in November with Boehner, as well as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. The president spoke by telephone with Reid and in person with Pelosi on Friday. Obama has been pushing higher tax rates on the wealthiest Americans as one way to reduce the deficit a position Boehner and other House Republicans have been steadfastly against. Republicans are demanding steeper cuts in costly government entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security.

An estimated 300 people attended the event. The purpose of the open houses at Three Sisters is to allow the public to enjoy the boardwalk and land around it, which is not yet open to the public. Usually, the springs can only be accessed by boat. Leavers said this was the first time he saw the springs from land, although he and his wife have paddled to Three Sisters before. Its nice to see it from a different perspective, he said. At right, A snorkeler swims near two manatees resting outside Three Sisters Springs on Saturday during a Three Sisters Springs open house.

E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerTables around the room were filled with individuals and papers mounted about. Attendees were deep in conversation as they listened to advice from their budget coaches. Sixty registered attendees were present for one main goal financial literacy. Earn It, Keep It, Save It, a free financial literacy forum, was held Friday at the College of Central Florida. Residents needing financial direction were invited to gain information about budgeting, credit and lending, county housing resources, building banking relationships and home efficiency with weatherization. Patty Silvey, Heidi Blanchette, Connie Lobel and Brenda Mobely were among those who conducted these impact segments in classrooms. Through five segments, participants learned how to manage their personal finances and impacting their lives. This is such a great opportunity for folks to learn more about resources that are available in the community, United Way CEO Amy Meek said. There are a lot of great resources here today that attendees can utilize along with budgeting information. United Way partnered with University of Florida/IFAS Extension Master Money Mentors, SunTrust, Center State Bank, Bank of America, Capital City Bank, Weatherization Works (who partners with Progress Energy) and Citrus County Board of County Commissioners in providing the five financial courses. United Way is trying to support the agencies that provide immediate assistance, said United Way member and budget coach Ned Barry. Also, we want to provide a way for people to move out of an immediate emergency and build their lives. We call that impact. We have an education impact, health impact and income impact. I am heading up the income impact committee, which is trying to put together resource providers with those who need those resources. We want to solve problems instead of just fixing them on an emergency basis. Attendees also received a money management calendar from the Master Money Mentors program. Every month in the calendar gives participants resources for managing their monthly finances. Fourteen trained budget coaches were available for one-on-one budget counseling in helping individuals create savings each month for an impact on their financial life. We are taking a full half-hour to go through the financial management calendar that we have provided for them, said Brandon Peterson, coordinator of Florida Master Money Mentors HUD Education and Counseling Services with the University of Florida. They are documenting their due dates for their fixed expenses. We are also encouraging them to set up a pay-yourself-first savings plan. Participants today make a commitment to save each month through our Florida Saves 2020 program, which is a program off of the America Saves national campaign program. They are committing to $1 or $2 a day. If they can do that, it can be as much as $10 a month to as much as reaching a specific goal that they are looking to do. In response to surveys, attendees reported creating avenues of future savings of $100 per month one participant reported $152.09. YMCA, Early Learning Coalition, Withlacoochee Technical Institution, CF, Master Money Mentors and Workforce Connection had tables available for guidance in other areas of personal need. One of the focusways for United Way is education, said CF Citrus campus vice president Vernon Lawter. That is our main mission. Where we share a mission, two partners are better than one. We just want to be a part of serving the community. If helping to educate them on better ways to budget their finances is one way we can do it, we want to do it. Furthermore, Publix and Walmart joined the financial literacy forum in providing the attendees with free breakfast and lunch. In addition, two 18-pound bags of food were donated by the Community Food Bank of Citrus County for each person to take home. Spaghetti, cereal, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, a variety of soups, spaghetti sauce and much more was included in each bag. Also, during December, the countys bus, the Orange Line, will be offering free fixed-route bus rides. A followup to the communityimpact event will be held on January 11. After a month of utilizing the financial advice and calendar, partners with United Way and Master Money Mentors want to reconnect with individuals to offer any further information that is needed in continuing to make a bigger impact on personal finances. This means a lot to the community that United Way is putting forth an effort in the impact areas that we have gone to, said United Way board president Marie Straight. We are focusing on education, income and health. People are really excited about it. The presenters come from all walks and professions in our community. This is an activity that we are doing so that people get a hand up instead of a handout. For more information, call United Way at 352-795-LIVE (5483).

Workshop aims to teach prudent fiscal practices C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterWithin about three hours of setting paw in Pasco County, Aspen had a loving new home. Not that every homeless Siberian husky should head south for a better life: Aspens assignment came about as the result of the continuing work of the Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS). Through its members constant networking, the countys abandoned pets get placed where they are wanted all over the country. Aspen happens to be the groups 500th success story, from one rescue nonprofit working with another. When they took Aspen, this particular rescue had two or three families lined up, said Michael DeRose, FOCCAS president and rescue volunteer with animal services. They were confident she would go home pretty quick. DeRose drove Aspen part of the way to Pasco County, where he met the man from the other rescue group. He said goodbye to Aspen as he handed her over. He called me about 4 oclock and said, Shes on her way to her new home, DeRose said. They already had these preapproved adopters and theyd already done all the home checks. The first family that came and saw her just absolutely fell in love with her. That family already owned another young husky, which they brought along to see how the two dogs played together. It was a perfect match, as Aspen found a new best friend. Originally, Aspen came in as a stray (to county animal services), DeRose said. She got adopted locally here, but although the people seemed to be genuine, I thought she was going to be too much dog for them. Huskies are very active dogs, especially when they are young. Aspen had a constant need to run around, sometimes escaping from her yard. They finally called me and said, Could you just come and get her? DeRose said. Having worked before with the husky rescue group in Pasco County, DeRose was certain he could get them to find Aspen a good home. Nothing bad was going to happen to her, DeRose said. As the owner of huskies himself since he was 7 years old, DeRose knows the breed to have sweet personalities and an adventurous spirit that makes them bolt out of an open door or gate when they see the chance. In his work with FOCCAS, DeRose specializes in huskies and other big breeds. You may think you have an escape-proof yard, but huskies are very creative and can find a way out, DeRose said. For their sweetness and good looks athletic with beautiful blue eyes huskies have a lot of appeal to dog owners, but they are high-maintenance with their exercise needs. DeRose said he has seen the breed adopted and then surrendered back to animal services for that reason. That is where a breedspecific rescue group can help find homes for dogs with such known characteristics. Since its inception more than two years ago, FOCCAS has built strong relationships with many breedspecific rescue groups to place dogs where they are wanted. They have connections all over Florida and in many other states. DeRose said dogs have been taken to new homes as far north as New England. Some breeds are more popular in other states than in Florida the Treeing Walker coonhound, for example. Although hard to place here, Treeing Walkers are highly popular in Tennessee. Other FOCCAS volunteers specialize in specific breeds to build a network of rescue groups to contact when a home is needed. We let people pick whatever breeds they want to work with, DeRose said. The breed-specific rescue groups sometimes take a dog that has no hope of going home with a family just to be sure it will get the care it needs. Aspen is the 500th dog FOCCAS actually has taken and transported to another rescue. The group has placed untold numbers of animals within the county. In addition, FOCCAS raises funds to pay for medical treatment for animals that arrive at the shelter injured, so that the county does not have to pay. FOCCAS members constantly reach out to rescue groups to tell them about the dogs at the shelter, rather than waiting for the rescue groups to ask. We are proactively contacting rescues and doing evaluations, DeRose said. Its a whole team effort. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

His younger brother, who lives north of Orlando, retired as a baker for Publix. Ive been baking for probably 30 years and I never get tired of it; I love doing it, he said. Currently, Peron, 51, bakes for Joes Family Restaurant in Inverness. Before that he owned a bakery in Inverness, first where SunTrust Bank is on U.S. 41 South and then in Citrus Commons Plaza, a few doors down from B&W Rexall, where he stayed for more than six years. It was very successful, Peron said. Restaurants kept asking me for bread and that got to be so much that I closed the retail and did just wholesale bread out of a warehouse on North Apopka. I did that for nine years, baking and delivering bread to restaurants to all of Citrus and all of Marion counties. Its 7:30 on a Friday morning. As the cooks in Joes Restaurants kitchen prepare for the day ahead, Peron has already baked batches of pastries and maybe a cheesecake or a pie or two for the pastry case at the front of the restaurant. On this day hes rolling out dough for biscuits, using the opening of a plastic drinking glass as his biscuit cutter. He works fast and rhythmically as he talks, stopping only to check the oven when a timer goes off. Youve got to have a passion for it, he says. I hope this doesnt sound arrogant, but its like a gift; you have to have a knack for it. People can follow recipes and they still dont come out right. Some people can grow plants when others cant, and some people can bake. He points out the lumps in the biscuit dough. Lumps are good, he says. You dont want to mix biscuits or pie crust too much. When he comes in at 2 a.m., right after making coffee, Peron checks the restaurants pastry case to see what he needs to bake. He has his standards Danishes, cinnamon rolls, muffins, pies. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, he worked 15 hours just baking pies. I like doing different varieties of cheesecakes, he says. Here Ive made 12 to 15 different kinds. In the restaurant kitchen his work space is limited, not like when he had his own bakery. He doesnt have room to make bread, which he misses. He lacks space for the big dough mixers and shelf space for ingredients. He works until everything comes out of the oven and is ready for the days sales. Then he goes home for a nap. Bedtime is about 9 p.m., then up at 1:45 a.m. Bakers never get enough sleep, he says. Bakers dont bake at home, either. But I do cook, he says. I love anything to do with food. His specialty is pizza really, really, really good pizza. Peron says he has never wanted to do anything else, ever since he watched his dad bake, ever since he learned to punch down rising bread dough and turn flour, sugar and butter into something wonderful. Its not easy work, he says. Its early mornings and a lot of hard work. If you dont love it, find something else to do. But if you love it, all that doesnt matter.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline. com or 352-564-2927.

The Citrus County Sheriffs Office Division of Fire Rescue responded at 9:54 p.m. to a residential structure at 5296 W. Oaklawn St. Engine 31 from Homosassa arrived on scene at 10:01 p.m. to find fire spreading in about one-quarter of a 1,500-square-foot single-family dwelling. Firefighters started an aggressive interior attack, as they did not know whether anyone was inside the house owned by Ralph Valez. The fire was brought under control at 10:25 p.m. Five engines, one tanker, one squad and a battalion chief were assigned to this incident. The state fire marshal responded to investigate. The house and the contents were estimated at $52,000 with loss of property and contents estimated at $13,125. Shooting during ATV sale kills one, injures anotherLAKE MARY Central Florida authorities said an attempted robbery during the sale of an all-terrain vehicle led to a shooting that left one man dead and another injured. Seminole County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Heather Smith told the Orlando Sentinel two men trying to sell the ATV through a Craigslist ad were confronted by two armed men Saturday afternoon at a Lake Mary apartment complex. Smith said one of the men selling the ATV was armed as well and exchanged gunfire with the attackers. One attacker was killed. Smith said the other was shot several times but fled the scene on foot. Deputies later found the man hiding in a nearby home. Man pleads guilty to smuggling birds in pantsMIAMI Federal authorities said a Miami man faces up to 20 years in prison for trying to smuggle birds from Cuba into the United States in his pants. Alberto Diaz Gonzalez pleaded guilty Thursday to attempting to import undeclared wildlife from the Caribbean island. The U.S. Attorneys office said Diaz will be sentenced in February. A message left Sunday for Diazs federal public defender was not immediately returned. Diaz returned Oct. 20 to Miami from Havana. According to court documents, he told U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at Miamis airport he was not carrying any wildlife. Authorities said when officers searched Diaz, they found 16 Cuban bullfinches hidden in his pants. Diaz told the officers he got the birds in Cuba and planned to sell them here.

duces other live shows such as Disney on Ice, also plans to relocate its global headquarters from Vienna, Va., to Manatee County over the next five years. Costumes, sets, lights and sound equipment that Feld currently keeps on a 4-acre campus in Palmetto also will move to Ellenton. After the first of the year, we are going to start migrating from Palmetto, Payne said. Were hoping to have it up and running on a much larger scale by next summer. The Ellenton campus also will be available to outside touring companies, Payne said. Feld, a privately held family company, bought the circus in 1967. Company officials told The Associated Press earlier this year that its business remains steady, with the circus drawing more than 10 million people a year to its shows in the U.S. Feld will keep its 148 existing employees and is expected to add 235 new jobs over the next five years, according to the Manatee Economic Development Corp. We are already moving certain people down to Florida from Virginia, Payne said. After the move is completed, we will continue to add jobs locally from Manatee and surrounding counties. We want to become part of the community and one of the large employers in the county. the assessed valuation of the companys energy complex north of Crystal River. Meek and other county officials involved in the Progress tax dispute say the company, led by Rogers, purposely waited until after the tax year began to make its payment, knowing it would place local governments at a financial disadvantage to fight the company in court. While Meek said he is disappointed with Duke, he hopes the company can restore its name by, as Meek calls it, doing the right thing. We seek to have a great relationship with Duke, he said. Unfortunately, this issue is causing an extreme amount of friction. Meek noted that Duke recently donated $7,000 to the EDC to help find suitable property for industries looking to relocate. He said thats a good sign, but Meek acknowledged the breakdown that now exists wont go away until the two sides settle the tax dispute. What kind of relationship do we have when they put us in this kind of situation? Meek said. We need to call it what it is. They can save this. We can come to a resolution and move forward. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said he now realizes Dukes decisions are solely based on the bottom line. The countys relationship with Duke should be more formal, he said. If it makes business sense for them to make decisions that benefit the community, then they will, Thorpe said. Meek said he still wants a relationship with Duke, the countys largest taxpayer and employer. We obviously want them in our community, he said, and then added: But not (to) take advantage of us.

Associated PressNEW YORK Emerald is no longer green with envy. The rich, vibrant shade is Pantone LLCs Color of the Year for 2013, beating out all the other shades of the rainbow. The company, which creates and matches colors for the fashion, home and beauty industries, among others, picks its top hue based on both how its already being used and a prediction of sustained popularity. Greens time had come, says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantones research arm known as the Pantone Color Institute. The entire green family has been so strong, upcoming through the s as were paying attention to nature, so the family isnt new, but what we needed to look at and revisit was the psychological background: Emerald is such a balanced color, and balance is something to pick up on and listen to, she explains. Eiseman adds, Its a color of growth, renewal, healing, unity and regeneration words were all so in need of at this point of history. On the runways, emerald green was spotted for 2013 at Michael Kors, Nanette Lepore and Vivienne Tam. Tracy Reese took her bow wearing green. In the home category, green is almost like a neutral, complementing almost everything else, Eiseman says: Pair it with tan, black, blue or even yellow. She has seen it used for an espresso maker, kitchen stool and a mixer. Sephora is very happy with the recognition of this color, says Margarita Arriagada, the companys senior vice president of merchandising. She envisions it as an instant hit as an eye shadow, liner, mascara and nail polish. Its a passionate color, and it gives our client a lot of wearability. The orange shade called Tangerine Tango that Pantone made its top color for 2012 worked for makeup, even though one might not think it would, Arriagada says. I can tell you, with conviction, that what happened with Tangerine Tango was transformative. It was like our customer had permission to venture out there with something new and experienced color in a new way. A reddish-pink shade called Honeysuckle and turquoise blue are other recent Pantone picks. Colors rise and fall in popularity just like other style-centric trends, says Eiseman, but she thinks green has staying power like few others. It has taken on meaning as a noun and a verb as well as an adjective. It might have been a trend, but it has become a social cause so its just part of our world. ... Kermit said its not easy being green, but it became easier once it became a good thing to be green.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Just six blocks from the White House, the FBIs hulking headquarters overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue has long been the government building everyone loves to hate. The verdict: Its an ugly, crumbling concrete behemoth, an architectural mishap all 2.4 million square feet of it. But in this time of tight budgets, massive deficits and the fiscal cliff, the 38year-old FBI headquarters building has one big thing in its favor. It sits atop very valuable real estate, an entire city block on Americas Main Street, midway between the U.S. Capitol and the White House. Just how valuable? The General Services Administration intends to find out. This past week, the agency that oversees all federal buildings issued an invitation to developers: How would you like to build a new headquarters for the FBI in a different location? In exchange, well consider throwing in the J. Edgar Hoover building and the underlying land as part of the transaction. Were testing the marketplace, the GSAs acting administrator, Dan Tangherlini, said in an interview. We think we have very valuable property. How much is it worth? Tangherlini wants to see if it could be traded for a property that better meets current needs. The finish line is still a long way off. But in perhaps seven years, according to an estimate last year by the Government Accountability Office, the FBI could be in a new home at a fresh location in Washington or one of its surrounding counties. The J. Edgar Hoover building may not be praised as architecture, but the current building has become part of American culture. Half a million visitors a year took the FBI tour. The bureau even met with Walt Disney executives to see how Disneys operation handled big crowds. People on the tour sometimes recognized faces on the FBIs Ten Most Wanted exhibit and tipped off agents. The tours ended when the bureau moved its laboratory, a highlight of the tour, to its training center in Quantico, Va. Over the years, the building cropped up in news broadcasts, novels, television dramas and movies. Arlington Road, a fictional 1999 movie about domestic terrorists, ended with a shot, produced by Hollywoods imaging magic, of the structure being blown to bits by a truck bomb. What will really happen to the Hoover building? If last years report from the GAO, Congress investigative arm, is any indication, a developer might want to knock it down and start over. That report displayed photographs of concrete facing that came loose and had to be removed from the buildings exterior. Another problem: Rainwater runoff infiltrated the basement. Solution: The FBI juryrigged a plastic chute that directed the rainwater into a recycling bin. On the outside, its ugly; on the inside, its not hideous. Its just that horrifying world of modern sheet rock corridors, says Hank Griffith, a museum exhibitions coordinator who spent 15 years as an FBI clerical worker. In 1974, agents started moving into the new building from cramped quarters in the Justice Department across the street. The FBI building, which cost $126.1 million to build back then, occupies a 6.66-acre square block in the central business district. Heres what planners have in mind. We envision that if and when the FBI relocates that the site be reconsidered for mixed use as office space with retail, restaurants, cultural and residential components, said Elizabeth Miller of the National Capital Planning Commission, an independent federal agency. That goal could be achieved by either starting over or reusing the building there now, a planning commission document says. Miller cites the Newseum, which was built along Pennsylvania Avenue, as one example of what the planning commission envisions. The commissions vision would dramatically transform the current state of affairs. The FBI building is an example of Brutalist architecture derived from the French beton brut meaning raw concrete, a popular style in the 1960s and 1970s. The building wasnt originally intended to be quite so cold and forbidding. City planners envisioned shops and buildings with open courtyards along a redeveloped Pennsylvania Avenue. Initially, the FBI agreed, but the bureaus final design modified that for security reasons. FBI officials explained that the first floor along Pennsylvania Avenue was closed with marble facing rather than leased to shops for fear foreign agents might find a way to use the shops as a base to eavesdrop on the bureau. The public was blocked off from the buildings center courtyard, also for security. The current FBI building was designed to be a giant filing cabinet for investigative records, a purpose now made largely superfluous with the advent of the digital age, the GSAs Tangherlini said. As the FBI has shifted priorities to fight terrorism, the headquarters workforce has increased steadily for more than a decade, from 10,000 to over 17,000. But many of the headquarters employees arent working at headquarters. Overcrowding has pushed them into annexes scattered around Washington. There are serious security issues at those locations where the FBI must share space with multiple tenants. Consolidation is urgently needed and we view this as one of our highest priorities for the foreseeable future, the FBI told the GAO in a letter a year and a half ago. End may be near for unloved Hoover building Associated Press The Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters are pictured Feb. 3 in Washington, D.C. Just six blocks from the White House, the FBIs hulking headquarters overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue has long been the government building everyone loves to hate. The verdict: its an ugly, crumbling concrete behemoth.

valorem taxes dwindled through declining property values during a prolonged national economic recovery. That slowdown alone had taken county staff and the board through a major budget-paring exercise this year. On Nov. 6, the BOCC heard a presentation by Heather Encinosa, an attorney with Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson, a firm that specializes in local government finance. The board has commissioned the firm to prepare the report. Encinosa told the board that in spite of the countys efforts to cut spending, its budget projections still showed multimillion-dollar shortfalls. Encinosa offered several options aside from increasing the millage rate for ad valorem taxes for the county to continue funding its programs, maintenance and services. These included MSBUs (Municipal Service Benefits Units), MSTUs (Municipal Services Taxing Units), utility franchises, a local-option sales tax, surtaxes, a utility availability fee and charging more for user fees, as diversified revenue sources. In pursuing these sources, at 2 p.m. the board will open a public hearing affecting three neighborhoods Flying Dutchman Estates, Country Oaks and Hernando City Heights that would be subject to an MSBU. With an MSBU, a special assessment is imposed to cover the cost of providing a service or improvement to a particular area. After hearing public comment, the board will decide whether to create a resolution to use the uniform method of the levy, collection and enforcement of non-ad valorem special assessments, established in Florida statutes, for those road expenses. After a second public hearing at 2:30 p.m., the BOCC will deliberate a similar concept regarding special assessments throughout the unincorporated and all incorporated areas of the county for the cost of providing fire protection services and facilities, storm water services and facilities and roadway maintenance, improvements and associated services and facilities. In addition to the use of MSBUs, some of these services could be sourced through MSTUs. An MSTU is a straight millage rate used to fund programs not paid for by regular millage. Another public hearing at 3:15 p.m. will concern the application to the state for a proposed enterprise zone in a northwest area of the county along U.S. 19 at the site of the proposed Port Citrus project. The boards action would establish the enterprise zone area, create an enterprise zone development authority and pass a resolution to adopt an enterprise zone strategic plan. Last week, the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission unanimously recommended approval of the strategic plan to the BOCC. The county must make the application to the state by Dec. 31. County Administrator Brad Thorpe also will ask the board to approve submission of a new RESTORE Act funding application for the Sugarmill Woods Wastewater Treatment Facility Expansion and Reclaimed Water Upgrades Project. Thorpe also will ask the board to approve the revised project ranking: Cross Florida Barge Canal Boat Ramp, Crystal River Kings Bay Sediment Removal, Sugarmill Woods Wastewater Treatment Facility Expansion and Reclaimed Water Upgrades, Homosassa Southfork Water Quality Improvement Project Phase IV and Homosassa Wastewater Collection System Phase V. From 1:30 p.m., the board will present certificates and proclamations. A proclamation will acknowledge Dale McClellan as Sunbelt Expo Southeastern Farmer of the Year. Diane Reichard, president-elect of the Florida Government Finance Officers Association, will present to Betty Strifler, clerk of the court, the award for Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.

Senate Republicans would probably agree to higher tax rates on the wealthiest Americans if it meant getting a chance to overhaul entitlement programs. The comments by Bob Corker of Tennessee a fiscal conservative who has been gaining stature in the Senate as a pragmatic deal broker puts new pressure on Boehner and other Republican leaders to rethink their long-held assertion that even the very rich shouldnt see their rates go up next year. GOP leaders have argued that the revenue gained by hiking the top two tax rates would be trivial to the deficit, and that any tax hike hurts job creation. But Corker said insisting on that red line especially since Obama won reelection after campaigning on raising tax rates on the wealthy may not be wise. There is a growing group of folks looking at this and realizing that we dont have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end, Corker told Fox News Sunday. If Republicans agree to Obamas plan to increase rates on the top 2 percent of Americans, Corker added, the focus then shifts to entitlements and maybe it puts us in a place where we actually can do something that really saves the nation. Besides getting tax hikes through the Republicandominated House, Corkers proposal faces another hurdle: Democrats havent been receptive to GOP proposals on the entitlement programs. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin, DIll., on Sunday was skeptical about proposals to increase the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 67. He said he doesnt see Congress addressing the complicated issue of Medicare overhaul in the three weeks remaining before the end of the year. I just dont think we can do it in a matter of days here before the end of the year, Durbin said. We need to address that in a thoughtful way through the committee structure after the first of the year. And hard-line fiscal conservatives in the House are holding fast to their position. No Republican wants to vote for a rate tax increase, said Rep. Jeb Hensarling, RTexas, chairman of the House Republican Conference. Added Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.: Im not sure there is support for the rate hikes. There is support for revenue by cleaning up the code. Still, at least one House Republican has said there is another way. Rep. Tom Cole, of Oklahoma, has said Obama and Boehner should agree not to raise tax rates on the majority of Americans and negotiate the rates for top earners later. Cole said Sunday that most House Republicans would vote for that approach because it doesnt include a rate hike. You know, its not waving a white flag to recognize political reality, Cole said. Sen. Tom Coburn, ROkla., already has said he could support higher tax rates on upper incomes as part of a comprehensive plan to cut the federal deficit. When asked Sunday what it would take to sign on to a tax rate increase, Coburn echoed Corkers comments by responding, Significant entitlement reform. He quickly added, however, that he has estimated that such a tax rate increase would only affect about 7 percent of the deficit. Will I accept a tax increase as a part of a deal to actually solve our problems? Yes, Coburn said. But the presidents negotiating with the wrong people. He needs to be negotiating with our bondholders in China, because if we dont put a credible plan on the discussion, ultimately, we all lose. Obamas plan would raise $1.6 trillion in revenue over 10 years, partly by letting decade-old tax cuts on the countrys highest earners expire at the end of the year. He would continue those Bush-era tax cuts for everyone except individuals earning more than $200,000 and couples making above $250,000. The highest rates on top-paid Americans would rise from 33 percent and 35 percent to 36 percent and 39.6 percent. Boehner has offered $800 billion in new revenues to be raised by reducing or eliminating unspecified tax breaks on upper-income people. The Republican plan would cut spending by $1.4 trillion, including by trimming annual increases in Social Security payments and raising the eligibility age for Medicare.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys comments about 47 percent of the population dependent on the government and binders full of women topped this years best quotes, according to a Yale University librarian. Fred Shapiro, associate librarian at Yale Law School, released his seventh annual list of the most notable quotations of the year. Debate remarks and gaffes actually seemed to play an important role in the ups and downs of the election campaign and may even have affected the ultimate outcome of the election, Shapiro said. Heres the list: 1. There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what ... who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. ... These are people who pay no income tax. ... and so my job is not to worry about those people. Ill never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. Mitt Romney, remarks at private fundraiser, Boca Raton, Fla., May 17 2. We took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet (in Massachusetts). I went to a number of womens groups and said, Can you help us find folks? and they brought us whole binders full of women. Mitt Romney, second presidential debate, Hempstead, N.Y., Oct. 16 3. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If youve got a business you didnt build that. Barack Obama, remarks at campaign appearance, Roanoke, Va., July 13 4. Please proceed, Governor. Obama, second presidential debate, Hempstead, N.Y., Oct. 16. 5. You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military has changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines. Obama, third presidential debate, Boca Raton, Fla., Oct. 22 6.

Associated PressCompensation for private college presidents has continued to drift upward, while the number crossing the $1 million barrier a signal of prestige, and a magnet for criticism held steady at 36, according to a new survey. The latest annual compilation by The Chronicle of Higher Education covers data from 2010, due to lag time in the release of federal tax information. That year, median compensation for the 494 presidents in the survey leaders of institutions with budgets of at least $50 million was $396,649, or 2.8 percent higher than in last years survey. But median base salary fell slightly, by less than 1 percent. The highest paid was Bob Kerrey, who was president of The New School in New York until December 2010 before returning to Nebraska, where he made an unsuccessful run to return to the U.S Senate. Kerreys total compensation was valued at just over $3 million. His base salary was just over $600,000, but he received the remainder in the form of a retention bonus, deferred compensation and other benefits. It is common for such payments to inflate compensation for presidents in their final year in a position. Three presidents in 2010s top 10 are no longer at those institutions: Kerrey, David Pollick of Birmingham-Southern College, and Steven Sample of the University of Southern California. The highest-paid in 2010 who remains on the job is Shirley Ann Jackson of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, who was No. 2 at $2.34 million, followed by Pollick, at $2.31 million. The highest base salary belonged to John Sexton of New York University and totaled $1.24 million out of $1.48 million total compensation. The Chronicle has previously compiled salary data for the presidents of public institutions, which was available for 2011. Associated PressNEW YORK Bankrupt battery maker A123 Systems Inc. on Sunday said it will sell most of its assets to the U.S. arm of Chinese auto parts conglomerate Wanxiang Group Corp. for $256.6 million. Wanxiang America Corp. won an auction conducted under the supervision of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. A123s government business will be sold separately, for $2.25 million, to Navitas Systems, of Woodridge, Ill. A hearing seeking the necessary court approval of the sale is scheduled for Tuesday. The deal must also be OKd by the Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States, a federal inter-agency committee that reviews sales of U.S. companies to foreign owners. The company has about 2,000 employees. Waltham, Mass.-based A123, which makes lithium ion batteries for electric cars, grid storage and commercial and military applications, was awarded a $249 million grant from the Department of Energy in August 2009 to help it build U.S. factories. About $130 million of that grant was delivered before the company fell victim to the lackluster market for electric cars. In September 2009, it also held a successful initial public offering, raising $380 million as its stock gained more than 50 percent, to close over $20. Shares closed at 13 cents the session before it filed for bankruptcy protection. Despite opening several plants, developing highlytouted new technology, including a battery that could operate in extreme heat or cold, and signing deals with top automakers like General Motors, Chrysler and Indias Tata Motors, the company never posted a profit. In August, it reported an $83 million loss for the second quarter. At the same time, A123 said it reached a financing deal with Wanxiang Group for up to $450 million to help it stay afloat. But still short of cash, the company sought bankruptcy protection in October, and said it would sell its automotive unit to Milwaukee-based auto parts marker Johnson Controls Inc. for $125 million. Wanxiang challenged Johnson Controls role as the primary bidder, and stepped in to provide bankruptcy financing to when the U.S. company declined to do so. In a statement Sunday, Johnson Controls said it officially withdrew from the auction when it declined to match Wanxiangs bid, because the price was higher than the value of the assets to its operations. The Justice Department has said A123 needs the governments consent to sell its assets, maintaining in Bankruptcy Court that any sale must protect the governments interests because of the 2009 grant. DOJ maintained that its assets included the roughly $120 million that wasnt handed over yet under the grant, A123s cost-sharing obligations under federal assistance programs, and property and equipment purchased with government funds. Associated PressLINEVILLE, Ala. Clay County has almost 14,000 residents, around 100 churches and not a single place where you can buy a beer legally. Theres no Bud Light in the cooler at the corner convenience store and no fine wine for sale at the Piggly Wiggly supermarket. But bootleggers a few streets away will sell you a can of beer for $1.25. This scenic but poor county in the hills about 50 miles east of Birmingham harks back to the 1920s, when Prohibition was the law of the land. After a neighboring county recently voted wet, Clay County became the last bone-dry county in Alabama and one of a dwindling number across the nation. Nestled at the southern tip of the Appalachians and lacking so much as a federal highway to bring in visitors, people here pride themselves on scraping by. To some, prohibiting legal alcohol sales is both a moral issue and part of being off the beaten path. Clay County is more of a rural setting. Family values are held more dearly to the heart, said the Rev. Bruce Willis, a staunch alcohol opponent and missions director of the Carey Baptist Association. With 33 churches that have 5,371 members on their rolls, the association accounts for about 39 percent of the countys entire population. Its not that no one drinks in Clay County; possession of limited amounts of alcohol is legal, and plenty of residents buy beer and liquor across county lines and take it home. Its an open secret that bootleggers buy beer or liquor legally elsewhere and sell it in the county, said County Commission Chairman Wayne Watts, a former police chief of Lineville. Its pretty wet to be dry, said Watts, driving through a part of town where empty beer cans litter the ground marking bootleggers homes. But even supporters of legalizing alcohol sales see little chance things will change in a county thats best known for winning high school football teams and its most famous native, the late Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black. Theres just hasnt been an appetite for it, said Matt Hooten, a businessman who splits his time between Clay County and Montgomery and favors the legalization of alcohol sales. The issue last came up for a vote in 1986, when overwhelming opposition from churches helped defeat the proposal 2,716-2,223. Local papers were filled with advertisements and letters from alcohol opponents leading up to the vote. Is placing my approval upon liquor morally right or wrong? Gods word says it is wrong! said one ad, placed by a pro-dry group whose chairman is the namesake for the local National Guard armory. A petition for another referendum died about four years ago, and no one has tried again since then. Jimmy Barton, who remembers buying alcohol from bootleggers years ago and now owns an auto parts store, favors going wet. He still has one of the old petitions with only a few signatures and lots of empty lines where no one signed. Staging a vote requires signatures from 25 percent of the people who voted in the last countywide election, and Barton said hes not sure when that will happen again. Its hard to read. You have closet drinkers who will vote it dry every time, he said. Some business owners and residents say allowing alcohol sales would help bring in new restaurants and promote new development. Stan Gaither, director of the Ashland Housing Authority and a former business owner, envisions restaurants in downtown Lineville or nearby Ashland serving evening meals and wine to out-of-towners who come to hike or ride bikes in Clay Countys endless forests and craggy mountains. Yet the county chamber of commerce hasnt taken an official position on legalization, and executive director Mary Patchunka-Smith said shed never serve alcohol at a chamber event. The topic is too touchy, she said. Its rare to see alcohol at wedding receptions or public events, residents say, yet many people drink at home. Even the Rev. Zenus Windsor, who publicly opposes legalizing alcohol sales in the county, says he buys wine in a neighboring county and drinks a glass at home each night to help keep his high cholesterol in check. I told my church about it, said Windsor, 77. My Lord drank wine. He turned water into wine.

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2012 Keeping church and state separate Reference is made to Meimans (Dec. 3 letter) being very upset by the Nature Coast Chapter meeting at the public library in Inverness. The Nature Coast chapter is a chapter of Americans for Separation of Church and State, which is a non-partisan educational organization dedicated to preserving the constitutional principal of church-state separation as the only way to ensure religious freedom for all Americans. What I find upsetting is there are people who do not know the law of the land is the U.S. Constitution. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution starts by stating Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or the prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Every U.S. president takes an oath to protect and defend our Constitution. Is it not also our patriotic duty to be vigilant against those who would violate it? Our Florida State Constitution 1868, Article 1, Section 3; Religious freedom There shall be no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting or penalizing the free exercise thereof. .... No revenue of the state or any political subdivision or agency thereof shall ever be taken from the public treasury directly or indirectly in aid of any church, sect, or religious denomination or in aid of any sectarian institution. In November, we Floridians refused Amendment 8, which would have changed our Constitution. Thank God for our countrys Constitution, since it prevents outrageous punishments and edicts meted out based upon Shariah Law (Muslim) as well as laws found in Bible scriptures. We are fortunate to live in a country whose people are free to have diverse beliefs (or none). Imagine if it were mandatory to pay for and support a religion not of your choosing. It had been prior to 1786, Colonial-era Virginia had a system of stateestablished religion and mandatory support, through church taxes, for the Anglican faith. Was Meimen also upset when the Cornerstone Baptist Church held Sunday services at the Citrus Public High School in April 2007? Our chapter is open to the public at the Inverness public library, which provides access to many other secular groups. Augie Nero Inverness Gosh! said Franklin Roosevelt on the death of Yamamoto The New York Times May 22, 1943 WASHINGTONP resident Franklin Roosevelt was truly astonished when told by a reporter Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, architect of the Pearl Harbor attack, had been shot down by U.S. planes over a Pacific island after Americans decrypted Yamamotos flight plans. FDR had encouraged this targeted killing destroying a particular person of military importance a phrase that has become familiar since Israel began doing this in 2000 in combating the second Palestinian intifada. But was the downing of Yamamotos plane an assassination? If British commandos had succeeded in the plan to kill German Gen. Erwin Rommel in Libya in 1941, would that have been an assassination? If President Reagans 1986 attack on military and intelligence targets in Libya, including one Moammar Gaddafi sometimes used as a residence, had killed him, would that have been an assassination? What about the November 2001 CIA drone attack on a Kabul meeting of high-level al-Qaeda leaders that missed Osama bin Laden but killed his military chief? An old executive order and a new technology give these questions urgent pertinence. Executive Order 12333, issued by Reagan in 1981, extended one promulgated by Gerald Ford in 1976 in response to revelations about CIA attempts to assassinate Fidel Castro and affirmed by Jimmy Carter. Order 12333 said: No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination. What, then, of the Navy SEALs who killed bin Laden? The new technology is the armed drone, which can loiter over the suspected location of an important enemy person and, in conjunction with satellite imagery, deliver precisionguided munitions in a matter of minutes. Fortunately, John Yoo of the Berkeley School of Law has written a lucid guide to the legal and moral calculus of combating terrorism by targeting significant enemy individuals. In Assassination or Targeted Killings After 9/11 (New York Law School Law Review, 2011/12) Yoo correctly notes precise attacks against individuals have many precedents and further the goals of the laws of war by eliminating the enemy and reducing harm to innocent civilians. And he clarifies the compelling logic of using drones for targeted killings attacking a specific person rather than a military unit or asset in todays undefined war with a limitless battlefield. To be proper, any use of military force should be necessary, as discriminating as is practical, and proportional to the threat. Waging war, Yoo said, is unlike administering criminal justice in one decisive particular. The criminal justice system is retrospective: it acts after a crime. A nation attacked, as America was on 9/11, goes to war to prevent future injuries, which inevitably involves probabilities and guesses. Todays war is additionally complicated by the fact that, as Yoo said, Americas enemy resembles a network, not a nation. Its commanders and fighters do not wear uniforms; they hide among civilian populations and are not parts of a transparent command and control apparatus. Drones enable the U.S. military which, regarding drones, includes the CIA; an important distinction has been blurred to wield a technology especially potent against al-Qaedas organization and tactics. All its leaders are, effectively, military, not civilian. Killing them serves the military purposes of demoralizing the enemy, preventing planning, sowing confusion and draining the reservoir of experience. Most U.S. wars have been fought with military mass sustained by economic might. But as Yoo said, todays war is against a diffuse enemy who has no territory to invade and no massed forces to crush. So the war cannot be won by producing more tanks, army divisions or naval forces. The United States can win only by destroying al-Qaedas ability to function by selectively killing or capturing its key members. After the terrorist bombings of two U.S. embassies in East Africa in 1998, the Bill Clinton administration launched cruise missiles against suspected terrorist camps in Afghanistan, hoping bin Laden was there. If the missiles had killed him, would this have been improper? In March 2003, in the hours before the invasion of Iraq, the George W. Bush administration, thinking it knew where Saddam Hussein was, launched a cruise missile strike against one of his compounds. Was it wrong to try to economize violence by decapitating his regime? Would it have been morally preferable to attempt this by targeting, with heavy bombing, not a person but his neighborhood? Surely not. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost.com. He that has gone so far as to cut the claws of the lion, will not feel himself quite secure until he has also drawn his teeth.

Its waiting for that care that has patients and hospital administrators so rankled. CMH CEO Ryan Beaty, speaking to the Chronicle in May about the hospitals efforts to reduce not just ER wait times, but overall time spent in the hospital, accurately portrayed the problem: Its a very difficult and complicated situation. While true, there are some simple steps both patients and CMH could take to make the countys public hospital a more efficient provider of emergency care and improve patient experience. The most recent readily available survey of ER wait times in the United States comes from the 2010 Press Ganey Pulse report, which found that in 2009 patients waited an average of four hours and seven minutes thats a quarter of most waking days spent aching, anxious and wondering when relief will come. But another Pulse Report, this one from 2011, sounds a hopeful note: Data have long shown that keeping patients informed about delays and setting expectations appropriately can have a strong mitigating effect. A curious wrinkle, then, is CMHs page on TheDocClock.com, a site that allows users to report their own wait times. While the reports are certainly not comprehensive or representative, all of the reported wait times are under the national average yet those reporting the times are almost uniformly furious. And when it comes to managing expectations, CMH is facing stiff competition from nearby private provider Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. Patients wanting to know what the wait time is at Seven Rivers need only log on to its website, where the current wait eight minutes, as of the time of this writing is prominently displayed on its home page. Seven Rivers also offers an application for iPhone users, and those without smartphones can send a text message to a phone number and receive an automated response with the current wait time. Thats when effective communication begins before the patient even arrives. Setting expectations for people who are distressed and in pain means much more than telling them a doctor will be with them as soon as possible. But patients have a part to play, too. While undoubtedly miserable, the flu or a broken toe are, in most instances, not emergencies. As a source of primary care, the emergency room is inefficient and terribly expensive, and patients seeking emergency treatment for such conditions are doing themselves and emergency care providers a great disservice. Its unreasonable to expect laymen to be expert diagnosticians, but the responsibility for ones well-being is ultimately ones own. Patients should have an understanding of what requires emergency care and what does not, and be proactive in matters of their health. If you can afford insurance, purchase it: Regular checkups may not give the same satisfaction as dining out or going to the movies, but they can prevent an underlying condition from flaring into a serious problem that requires immediate attention. Keep a first-aid kit handy youll pay far less for a bottle of ibuprofen or antibiotic ointment at the pharmacy than you will at the hospital, and you wont have to wait hours to get it. To this end, the county can also help: Moving the health department nearer the hospital would create a diversion stream for patients who wrongly assume they need emergency care, and ease the burden on a hospital heavily reliant on fluctuating public funds and encumbered by a larger patient load than its nearest competitor. At the Chronicle we hear two common refrains about CMH: The quality of care is outstanding, and the wait times are unbearable. Wed like to hear less of the latter. THE ISSUE: Wait times at Citrus Memorial hospital. OUR OPINION: Patients, hospital, county all have parts to play in reducing times.

The thought of selling never crossed his mind until a Chinese company came to town. Shenhua Watermark Coal offered to buy farms at unheard-of prices. The decision wasnt easy, Clift says. His pioneer ancestors settled the land in 1832. But farming is a business nowadays, and selling his 6,500 acres made business sense. If someone offers you a whole heap of money, youve got to take it, says the 50year-old father of two, sitting at the kitchen table of the palatial hilltop home he built with the windfall. A sea of yellow stretches out below, canola fields planted on less fertile land he bought 25 miles to the north. Soaring coal prices fueled by Chinas economic growth have made mining parts of the Australian landscape far more lucrative than farming it. Its one example of how Chinas emergence as a global trading power may transform countries in ways never contemplated and not yet fully understood. The Associated Press analyzed Chinas trade with other countries as a percentage of their gross domestic product, using an International Monetary Fund database. It found that, on average, trade with China had climbed to 12.4 percent of GDP by 2011. By comparison, the peak reached with the U.S. in the past 30 years was 10 percent in 2001. In Australia, where trade with China hit 7.7 percent of GDP last year, exports of coal and iron ore have helped Australia fend off recession for 21 years and deliver the largest trade surpluses in 140 years of record-keeping. Chinas rapid rise has given Australia its strongest terms of trade since a global wool boom in the 1950s, says economist Peter Robertson at the University of Western Australia. That boom was fairly short-lived, he wrote in an email response to questions. This ones length is unknown. It may turn out much bigger depending on Chinas future growth. The former British colonys relationship with China is deepening in other ways: More than 29,000 Chinese became permanent residents in the year ending June 30, 2011, for the first time eclipsing the United Kingdom, the traditional source of migrants. While India topped China in the next 12-month period, that appears to have been a blip. China accounted for nearly two-thirds of the 10,407 business visas in the most recent year investors and entrepreneurs either given residency or put on a likely path to it. Here we have China not only being out biggest trading partner, it is now the major source of migrants and the major source of international students studying here, says Peter Drysdale, an emeritus professor of economics at Australian National University. The study leads to migration leads to investment, leads to the deepening of the economic relationship and the interaction between the communities, he adds. The scale of it is ... now starting to cover a space that historically the relationship with the United Kingdom covered. In eastern Australia, the China boom is reawakening the sleepy town of Gunnedah. Construction workers and surveyors in high-visibility, fluorescent green shirts are a common sight, a constant reminder that the plans to mine are the cause of the economic resurgence. Not everyone is happy. The prospect of mining has divided the town of 12,000, including members of the extended Clift clan. There are fears that coal dust, endless coal trains and damage to the aquifers could forever alter a pastoral way of life, perhaps even make it untenable. Shenhua spokeswoman Melanie Layton says the land will return to farming after the 30-year life of the mines. Gunnedah, whose previous heyday came during the 1950s wool boom, may be undergoing one of its biggest transformations since it was settled in 1856, says Adam Marshall, who stepped down as mayor in September. We did have a mini coal boom in the early 1980s, but nothing on the scale which were seeing now. Coal mining has a long history in Australia, but never before has it encroached on such prime farmland as the Liverpool Plains, a 4,800-square-mile flatland bordered by mountain ridges and dotted with volcanic hills about 275 miles north of Sydney. Shenhua Watermark, a subsidiary of state-owned China Shenhua Energy, the worlds biggest coal mining company, spent more than $170 million to buy 43 farms covering 36,300 acres. Exmayor Marshall says sellers told him Shenhua paid several times market value. George Clift, 83, who refused to sell, is upset that his cousin Tony did. Youre supposed to hand it down to the next generation, so if youre not going to do that, you shouldnt have been handed the land in the first place, he says. Im very, very sad to see how everythings turning out for the next generation; weve seen the best of Australia and I think its only going to deteriorate from here on. Tony Clift says he believes the state would have forced him to allow mining anyway and probably for less compensation than Shenhua paid for the land. Mining companies can take landowners to court if the two sides cant agree on access to the land. Yeah, it causes some problems in the family. Thats life, Tony Clift says. Id rather take the money and run now than watch my whole block get dug up. Japans heady growth powered a boom in the 1980s, but trade with China, which dethroned Japan as Australias top trading partner in 2009, appears headed even higher. The 7.7 percent of GDP it reached in 2011 eclipsed Japans average of 6.4 percent in the 1980s and even its peak of 7.4 percent in 1985. One quarter of Australian exports are now shipped to China. Mark Beeson, a political scientist at the University of Western Australia, injects a note of caution: Resource booms are often followed by busts. Commodity prices have already come off highs as global mine production catches up with Chinese demand and the global economy has slowed. Some companies have shelved mine expansion plans. But the outlook for investment remains strong, the Australian government says, with about $524 billion in projects still in the pipeline. Therere lots of things that could go wrong, of course, but if it carries on, its going to get more and more important, Beeson says. In some ways, it already is: Turf wars between farmers and miners have triggered a national debate over agricultural land use, a rarity for such a sparsely populated country. Though Great Britain and the United States remain far more pervasive influences, China is becoming part of the political and social fabric in Australia, says Chen Jie, a lecturer on international relations at the University of Western Australia. He notes that lawmakers now visit China at the invitation of business interests there, influencing Australian politics. Its a new phenomenon. Its challenging some of the old assumptions in Australia, he said. Chinas money changes Australian outback Valuable coal fuels boom, sparks clashes over different visions

Snow Associated Press Motorists and pedestrians make their way along snowcovered St. Germain Street Sunday in St. Cloud, Minn. Three dead, three injured in shootingsPORTERVILLE, Calif. A man suspected of fatally shooting three people and wounding three children, including his two daughters, died Sunday from his injuries in a police shootout, authorities said. Hector Celaya, 31, died several hours after he was wounded during gunfire with Tulare County sheriffs deputies as he tried to flee in a vehicle. His death was confirmed by sheriffs Sgt. Chris Douglass, who did not release details. Authorities apprehended him early Sunday, about six hours after deputies were called to a trailer on the Tule Indian Reservation on Saturday night. Inside, they found the bodies of a man and a woman; the body of another man was nearby. Deputies also discovered a wounded young boy, whose condition and age were not known. Officials said Celaya shot his two daughters, ages 5 and 8, who were found with him in the vehicle when he was apprehended. One girl suffered life-threatening injuries, while the other girl was less seriously hurt. A motive for the attacks was not immediately known. The boy who was wounded is believed to be about 7, said Shelby Charley Jr., an engineer and supervisor with the Tule River Reservation Fire Department. This is a once in a lifetime kind of deal, Charley said of the call. Its one of those calls you could go your whole career and not walk into. This is one of those calls that will stick with you for the rest of your life. The winding roads out of the reservation delayed medical help for the boy, Charley said. Thick fog in the area prevented a medical helicopter from responding, Charley said. At the scene of the shooting, police tape stretched out across the driveway to three modular homes built on a hillside that appeared to be a family compound. The homes are in a remote area scattered with oak trees and rock outcroppings. Airport officer killed in Ohio CLEVELAND Authorities in Cleveland said a man fatally shot his airport-security-officer wife, fired at a second person, and then killed himself at an off-site airport employee parking lot. Police spokesman Sgt. Sammy Morris said the shooting late Sunday morning on the employee parking lot of the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport was an apparent homicide and suicide. The police spokesman said the man fired at another Transportation Security Administration employee who was commuting to work with the mans estranged wife but missed. The shooting occurred at the Riveredge airport employee parking lot north of the airport in an industrial area along Interstate 480. No names were immediately released. Police were not sure of a motive for the shooting.

Chavezs announcement on Saturday night unleashed new uncertainty about the countrys future, and his supporters poured into city plazas across the nation to pray for his recovery from what appears to be an aggressive type of cancer. Some wiped tears, while others held photos of him and chanted in unison: Ooh-Ah! Chavez isnt going away! Chavez acknowledged the seriousness of his health situation in a televised address, saying for the first time that if he suffers complications Vice President Nicolas Maduro should be elected as Venezuelas leader to continue his socialist movement. The 58-year-old president is still scheduled to be sworn in for a new six-year term Jan. 10. He has been in office for nearly 14 years, since 1999. Hundreds missing in Philippines stormNEW BATAAN, Philippines The number of people missing after a typhoon devastated the Philippines jumped to nearly 900 after families and fishing companies reported losing contact with more than 300 fishermen at sea, officials said. The fishermen from southern General Santos city and nearby Sarangani province left a few days before Typhoon Bopha hit the main southern island of Mindanao on Tuesday, Civil Defense chief Benito Ramos said. The death toll has already surpassed 600, mostly from flash floods that wiped away precarious communities in the southern region unaccustomed to typhoons. Ramos said the fishermen were headed to the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea and to the Pacific Ocean.

The government had initially said an announcement would be made over the weekend. The government has said it will spend about $13 billion in European funds on the buyback. World BRIEFS From wire reports Protests continue in Egypt Associated PressCAIRO Egypts opposition said Sunday it will keep up protests against a referendum on a disputed draft constitution but stopped short of advocating either a boycott or a no vote less than a week before the ballot. The opposition was still pushing for Islamist President Mohammed Morsi to cancel the Dec. 15 referendum, saying they reject the process entirely and refuse to call it legitimate. The referendum over a disputed draft constitution has deeply polarized Egypt and sparked some of the bloodiest clashes between Morsi supporters and opponents since he came to power in June. In a sign of how jittery the government is about holding the referendum, Morsi has ordered the military to maintain security and protect state institutions until the results of the referendum are announced. The new presidential decree, published in the official gazette, would be effective starting Monday. The military is asked to coordinate with the police on maintaining security and would also be entitled to arrest civilians. Morsi insists on holding the referendum on schedule. Instead, as a concession to his opponents, he rescinded decrees he issued last month granting him almost unrestricted powers, giving himself and the panel that drafted the constitution immunity from judicial oversight. The decrees sparked the protests. Opponents said they were issued initially to protect the disputed constitution from numerous court challenges. Rushing the approval of the constitution in a latenight session in the panel further inflamed those who claim Morsi and his Islamist allies, including the Muslim Brotherhood, are monopolizing power and trying to force their agenda into practice. The opposition sent hundreds of thousands of protesters into the streets, in unprecedented mass rallies for the largely secular groups since they led the popular uprising last year that toppled President Hosni Mubarak. This prompted protests by Morsi supporters and sparked bouts of street battles that left at least six people dead and hundreds wounded. Several offices of the Muslim Brotherhood also have been ransacked or torched in the unrest. Opposition calls on president to cancel referendum on constitution Courting hope, fear Associated PressWASHINGTON Gay marriage supporters see 41 reasons to fret over the Supreme Courts decision to take up the case of Californias ban on same-sex unions. While nine states allow same-sex partners to marry, or will soon, 41 states do not. Of those, 30 have written gay marriage bans into their state constitutions. That fact is worrisome to those who firmly believe there is a constitutional right to marry, regardless of sexual orientation, but who also know that the Supreme Court does not often get too far ahead of the country on hot-button social issues. Mindful of history, I cant help but be concerned, said Mary Bonauto, director of the Civil Rights Project at Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders and a leader in the state-bystate push for marriage equality. Bonauto was speaking before the court decided on Friday to take up cases on Californias constitutional ban on gay marriage and a federal law that denies to gay Americans who are legally married the favorable tax treatment and a range of health and pension benefits otherwise available to married couples. In 2008, California voters approved the ban, Proposition 8, after the state Supreme Court ruled that gay Californians could marry. Since then, a federal appeals court struck down the constitutional provision, but did not authorize the resumption of same-sex marriages pending appeal. Bonauto identified three earlier seminal rulings that once and for all outlawed state-backed discrimination, and observed that in each case the number of states that still had the discrimination on the books was far smaller. Thirteen states still had laws against sodomy when the court said in 2003 that states have no right to intrude on the private, personal conduct of people, regardless of sexual orientation. Interracial marriage still was illegal in 16 states in 1967 before the high court outlawed race-based state marriage bans. In 1954, when the court issued its landmark decision in Brown v. Board of Education, 17 states had formally segregated school systems. The fear among gay marriage proponents is that the court will refuse to declare that states can no longer define marriage as the union of a man and a woman, because to do so might provoke a backlash in public opinion and undermine acceptance of its authority. Gay marriage advocates nervous about Supreme Court Associated Press Corianton Hale, left, exchanges a ring with partner Keith Bacon as Judge Karli Kristine Jorgensen, center, officiates their wedding Sunday at Seattle City Hall, becoming among the first gay couples to legally wed in the state. Gov. Chris Gregoire signed a voter-approved law legalizing gay marriage Dec. 5 and weddings for gay and lesbian couples began in Washington on Sunday, following the three-day waiting period after marriage licenses were issued earlier in the week. Associated PressLANSING, Mich. With defeat in the Michigan Legislature virtually certain, Democrats and organized labor intend to make enactment of right-to-work laws as uncomfortable as possible for Gov. Rick Snyder and his Republican allies while laying the groundwork to seek payback at the polls. Shell-shocked opponents of the laws spent the weekend mapping strategy for protests and acts of civil disobedience, while acknowledging the cold reality that Republican majorities in both the House and Senate cannot be stopped or even delayed for long by parliamentary maneuvers. Leaders vowed to resist to the end, and then set their sights on winning control of the Legislature and defeating Snyder when he seeks reelection in 2014. Theyve awakened a sleeping giant, United Auto Workers President Bob King told The Associated Press on Saturday at a Detroit-area union hall, where about 200 activists were attending a planning session. Right-to-work laws prohibit requiring employees to join a union or pay fees similar to union dues as a condition of employment. Supporters say its about freedom of association for workers and a better business climate. Critics contend the real intent is to bleed unions of money and bargaining power. Hundreds of chanting, whistle-blowing demonstrators thronged the state Capitol last week as bills were introduced and approved hours later. Even more protesters are expected Tuesday, when the two chambers may reconcile wording differences and send final versions to Snyder, who now pledges to sign them after saying repeatedly since his 2010 election the issue wasnt on my agenda. Republicans are betting any political damage will be short-lived. During a news conference with GOP leaders last week announcing their intent to press ahead with right-to-work measures, Snyder urged labor to accept the inevitable and focus on showing workers why union representation is in their best interest.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Saturday night because there was no completed contract. Greinke is the top freeagent pitcher on the market, and has attracted interest from the Dodgers, Texas and the Los Angeles Angels. The 29-year-old righty started last season with Milwaukee and was later traded to the Angels, going a combined 15-5 with a 3.48 ERA. Phillies confirm trade for YoungPHILADELPHIA The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired seven-time AllStar infielder Michael Young from the Texas Rangers for two relief pitchers. The deal was announced Sunday, a day after Young agreed to waive his no-trade clause. The Phillies are sending right-hander Josh Lindblom and minor league righty Lisalverto Bonilla to the Rangers to get Young, who fills a void at third base. The Rangers also will pay a significant portion of Youngs salary for 2013. Young is due to earn $16 million. Reports say the Phillies will pay him about $6 million. Young batted .277 with eight homers and 67 RBIs in 2012, a down year for him. In the nine previous seasons, Young hit at least .300 seven times and averaged 17 homers and 90 RBIs. A former AL Gold Glove winner at shortstop, Young hasnt play third base regularly since 2010. Dodgers sign S.

From staff reports Warriors St. Martin plays in FACA game C.J. RISAK CorrespondentThere are single words or phrases that can define a player and his or her abilities. But what defines Daniette St. Martin and her skills on a volleyball court is a phrase that includes just about everything: All-around. St. Martin, the senior outside hitter at Seven Rivers Christian, was selected as the Florida Athletic Coaches Associations 2A-8 player of the year, and was also chosen to play in the FACA Volleyball All-Star Game at St. Leo University on Dec. 2. St. Martin, whose talent was unquestioned, improved as the season progressed, in all aspects. She provided a team that seemed to be centered around the Zachar sisters, both more than 6-foot-3, with an outside hitting threat. When St. Martins kills hit their target consistently, the team started winning, beating Crystal River the 5A-7 champion in two of their three meetings and taking bigger-school teams like Lecanto to four sets and Belleview to five. But again, trying to define St. Martin with one aspect of the game is an incomplete image. She finished with 129 kills, second best for the Warriors behind Alexis Zachar, but she also led the team with 209 digs. She was our best defender, said her Seven Rivers coach, Wanda Grey. At the beginning of the season, she was working on very specific things, and she was getting much better. She had the most digs on the team. She hit from the back row as well. She was very powerful, a great hitter and defender. And still, that wasnt all St. Martin did for Seven Rivers. She had an amazing jump serve that was SRCS outside hitter named District 2A-8 player of the year See FACA / Page B4 Bucs drop late 11-point lead, fall on games last play Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wild-card playoff hopes took a big hit on the games final play. Nick Foles threw a pair of touchdown passes in the final four minutes, including a 1-yarder to Jeremy Maclin with no time remaining to give the Philadelphia Eagles a 23-21 victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday. Right now were playing for a lot, Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said. We just didnt do it well enough. So, thats why we lost. At the end of the day, we just didnt play well enough, we didnt coach well enough to win. We need to play better to win and it didnt happen. Thats what it boils down to. The Bucs (6-7), who honored the franchises Super Bowl championship team at halftime, lost for the third straight week since their four-game winning streak helped them climb into playoff contention. I dont think we were tense, Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman said. Whatever it was, we were just a hair off. With time running out on the Eagles, Foles had all the answers for ending the teams longest losing streak in 42 years, an eightgame skid that may have placed coach Andy Reids job in jeopardy. The rookie completed 32 of 51 passes for 381 yards in his fourth start in place of the injured Michael Vick. He threw an 11yard TD pass to Clay Harbor with 3:55 remaining, then led the Eagles on a 64-yard game-winning drive after the Philadelphia defense forced a punt by Tampa Bay. Its not easy to keep your poise when youre getting hit all day, Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said of Foles. He did. He could have got nervous and he didnt. Sat in the pocket and made plays. Foles set up the winning touchdown with a 22-yard completion to Jason Avant on fourthand-5 to the Bucs 1. The Eagles scrambled up to the line and Foles spiked the ball, stopping the clock with 2 seconds left and giving Foles a chance for one more play. The 6-foot-6, third-round draft pick rolled to his right and found Maclin open in the end zone, and the receiver made the catch going to his knees. Officials reviewed the play and upheld the call. Rookie Doug Martin rushed for 128 yards and Freeman shrugged off a slow start to throw for two second-half touchdowns to help Tampa Bay overcome a 10-0 halftime deficit to take a 21-10 lead on Martins 4-yard TD run midway through the fourth quarter. We started off slow, Freeman said. We needed to get something going early on, and we werent able to do that. Thats when Foles, who also scored on a 10-yard run in the first half, took over. The Eagles drove 72 yards in eight plays to cut into their deficit on Harbors TD to make it 21-16.

Beltway belting Redskins cap rally with win over Ravens in overtime Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. With Robert Griffin III sidelined with a sprained right knee, the Washington Redskins rallied behind backup Kirk Cousins to tie the game in the final minute of regulation, then Kai Forbath kicked a 34-yard field goal in overtime Sunday for a 31-28 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Griffin was hurt at the end of a 13yard scramble while attempting to lead the game-tying drive with the Redskins trailing 28-20. He left for one play, returned for four, then was no longer able to continue. Cousins stepped in and hit Pierre Garcon for an 11-yard touchdown pass, then ran in the 2-point conversion with 29 seconds to play. The Redskins have won four straight to improve to 7-6. The Ravens lost back-to-back games for the first time since 2009 and fell to 9-4. Cowboys 20, Bengals 19 CINCINNATI The grieving Cowboys rallied for a significant win on Dan Baileys 40-yard field goal as time ran out. Dallas overcame a nine-point deficit in the closing minutes behind Tony Romo, who held his hand over his heart during a moment of silence to honor teammate Jerry Brown before the kickoff. Brown died in an auto accident early Saturday. Defensive lineman Josh Brent, who was driving, remained in jail in Irving, Texas, charged with intoxication manslaughter. The Cowboys (7-6) learned about Browns death on their flight to Cincinnati on Saturday. Coach Jason Garrett told his team that the best way to honor him was to play well in a game with playoff implications for both teams. A late comeback was just enough to beat the Bengals (7-6). Romo threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant, then led the drive to Baileys kick.Panthers 30, Falcons 20 CHARLOTTE, N.C. Cam Newton threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns and scored on a 72-yard run. Newton piled up a career-high 116 yards on the ground as the Panthers racked up 475 total yards to avenge an early-season loss with a dominating performance against the NFC South champion Falcons. Carolina (4-9) came in with little to play for except to gain a measure of revenge on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, whom they felt disrespected them after Atlantas 30-28 come-from-behind win earlier this season at the Georgia Dome. Ryan threw for 342 yards and two scores and had a costly fourth-quarter interception. The Panthers opened a 23-0 lead en route to snapping a five-game losing streak against the Falcons. Vikings 21, Bears 14MINNEAPOLIS Adrian Peterson rushed for 154 yards and two touchdowns and Harrison Smith returned an interception for a score. Peterson topped 100 yards before the first quarter was over, helping the Vikings (7-6) overcome another lackluster day from quarterback Christian Ponder to get a win that will keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Jay Cutler threw for 260 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions and couldnt finish the game for the Bears (85), who have lost four of their last five. He took a wicked hit to the head from Everson Griffen in the fourth quarter, remained in the game for the rest of that drive, but was replaced by Jason Campbell with 3 minutes to play.Browns 30, Chiefs 7CLEVELAND Rookie Travis Benjamins electrifying 93-yard punt return touchdown gave Cleveland momentum and the Browns won their third straight game. Benjamins game-changing runback helped the Browns (5-8) continue their resurgence under second-year coach Pat Shurmur, whose future in Cleveland remains uncertain. The Browns have one more win than last season, and their longest winning streak since 2009. Trent Richardson had a pair of 1-yard TD runs for Cleveland. Jamaal Charles ran for 165 yards, breaking off an 80-yard TD run on the games first play for Kansas City. It was the first road game for the Chiefs (2-11) following linebacker Jovan Belchers suicide. The 25-year-old killed his girlfriend at their home before driving to the teams practice facility on Dec. 1 and shooting himself. Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Rookie David Wilson returned a kickoff 97 yards for one touchdown, ran for two more scores and piled up 327 all-purpose yards and Eli Manning threw four touchdown passes to lead the New York Giants to a 52-27 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The win allowed the Giants (8-5) to maintain their one-game lead in the NFC East over Washington and Dallas. The loss all but ended the playoff hopes of Drew Brees and the Saints (5-8). The win also ended the Giants three-game losing streak against the Saints, who turned the ball over four times in losing their third straight. Manning had TD passes of 6 yards to Martellus Bennett, 5 yards to Domenik Hixon, 25 yards to Hakeem Nicks and 10 yards to Victor Cruz. Wilson scored on runs of 6 and 52 yards and finished with 100 yards on 13 carries on the biggest day of his career.Chargers 34, Steelers 24 PITTSBURGH Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Danario Alexander, and San Diego won for the first time in 15 regular-season visits to Pittsburgh. The Chargers (5-8), who snapped a four-game losing streak, dominated from the outset. They never let Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger get comfortable in his first game in nearly a month. Roethlisberger completed 22 of 42 passes for 285 yards and three second-half touchdowns. But he also threw an interception and had a botched screen pass turn into an easy San Diego score as Pittsburgh (7-6) hardly played like a team readying for a postseason run. Colts 27, Titans 23INDIANAPOLIS Andrew Luck led Indianapolis back from a 13-point second-half deficit and Adam Vinatieri made two fourth-quarter field goals. Luck has now engineered six fourth-quarter comebacks for Indy (9-4). It wasnt all Luck. Delone Carter cut the deficit to 20-14 with a 1-yard TD run on Indys opening possession of the second half. And after Pat McAfees 52-yard punt went out of bounds at the Titans 1-yard line, Cassius Vaughn jumped in front of Nate Washington, picked off Jake Lockers pass and scored on a 3-yard interception return to make it 21-20. Rob Bironas gave the Titans (4-9) a 23-21 lead with a 25yard field goal, but VInatieri hit from 53 yards to retake the lead and from 40 to seal it. Jets 17, Jaguars 10 JACKSONVILLE Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell ran for short touchdowns and the New York Jets kept their postseason hopes alive. The Jets (6-7) were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didnt need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time. Instead, they just pounded the Jaguars (2-11) up the middle. Mark Sanchez, benched last week in a 7-6 win against Arizona, was hardly a factor. Neither was backup Tim Tebow, who spent his homecoming on the sideline. Greene scored on a 1-yard plunge in the third quarter, and Powell added a 4-yarder early in the fourth. Greene finished with 77 yards rushing. Powell added 78 yards on the ground. Rams 15, Bills 12 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Sam Bradford threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson with 48 seconds left. Bradford was 5 of 8 for 68 yards to cap a 14-play, 84yard drive. St. Louis (6-6-1) continued its late-season resurgence by winning its third straight for the first time since closing the 2006 season with three victories. The Bills (5-8) blew a lead in the final minute of the fourth quarter for the second time this season. They squandered a six-point lead in a 35-34 loss to Tennessee on Oct. 21.Seahawks 58, Cardinals 0SEATTLE Marshawn Lynch had three touchdown runs and Seattle set a franchise record for points in a 580 win over the Cardinals. The Seahawks forced eight turnovers. Richard Sherman and Bobby Wagner each had two interceptions. Seattle (8-5) kept firm grasp on the final NFC wild-card spot and kept alive slim chances of catching San Francisco in the NFC West race. The Seahawks also picked up their first division victory and assured coach Pete Carroll of his first eight-win season in three years with them. The 58-0 victory was the biggest shutout in Seattles history. Leon Washingtons 3yard TD run with 2:32 left set a franchise record for points. Arizona (4-9) was shut out for the first time since 2003 against Seattle. The effortless performance will only raise questions about Ken Whisenhunts future as head coach. Arizona lost its ninth straight overall. 49ers 27, Dolphins 13 SAN FRANCISCO Frank Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown, reached 1,000 yards rushing for the sixth time in his career, and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Miami Dolphins 27-13. Gore finished with 63 yards, Anthony Dixon also had a 1yard scoring run and Colin Kaepernick ran for a late 50yard touchdown and threw for 185 yards in his fourth straight start since being promoted over Alex Smith. NFL sacks leader Aldon Smith added two to his total for 19 1/2, passing Fred Deans franchise-best singleseason mark of 17 1/2 set in 1983. Smith also moved within three sacks of Michael Strahans seasonal NFL record set in 2001 with the New York Giants. Michael Crabtree had nine catches for 93 yards and rookie LaMichael James ran for 30 yards in a solid NFL debut for the 49ers (9-3-1). Associated Press Washington Redskins punter Sav Rocca, right, hugs Kai Forbath after Forbaths winning 34-yard field goal in overtime Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens in Landover, Md. N.Y. Giants destroy Saints 52-27 Chargers surprise Steelers; Dolphins, Jaguars both fall Eli Manning threw 4 TD passes for Giants.

NFL STATISTICS No. 4 Duke women down St. Johns Associated PressNEW YORK Elizabeth Williams had 16 points and five blocks to help No. 4 Duke beat St. Johns 60-42 in the seventh annual Maggie Dixon Classic. Haley Peters added 11 points for the Blue Devils (80), who are off for the next week for exams. The two teams met last season in the NCAA tournament regional semifinals and the Blue Devils routed the Red Storm 74-47. Nadirah McKenith had 19 points to lead St. Johns (4-3). Trailing 11-10 early on, Duke scored 15 of the next 17 points to take control. Williams three-point play made it 17-11 and Alexis Jones layup capped the burst. St. Johns cut its deficit to nine before Duke closed the half with an 8-2 run to go up 36-21.No. 7 Kentucky 68, Middle Tenn. St. 56LEXINGTON, Ky. DeNesha Stallworth had 16 points, and No. 7 Kentucky used a first-half surge to defeat Middle Tennessee State 68-46. The Wildcats (8-1) struggled in the first half and were being out-rebounded 19-6 at one point late in the first half. But Middle Tennessee States persistence on the boards meant little because of how poorly it was shooting; the Blue Raiders were 6 of 24 from the floor in the first half and 0 for 8 from 3-point range. The Blue Raiders (6-4) endured an 11-minute stretch in the first half over which it had no field goals and scored only two points. Over that time, Kentucky stretched its lead from two points to 16. No. 10 Penn St. 97, Georgetown 74STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Maggie Lucas scored a careerhigh 39 points and ignited No. 10 Penn States potent transition game in a 97-74 rout of sloppy Georgetown. Lucas, the Lady Lions prolific shooting guard, was 11 of 21 from the field including 7 of 13 from 3-point territory. She had 26 alone in a first half in which Penn State (7-2) led by as much as 34. Sugar Rodgers scored 22 for Georgetown (7-3), which had its three-game winning streak snapped. The Hoyas shot only 31 percent on the afternoon. It took just three minutes for Penn State to take control after Lucas hit an open 3 from the left corner to start a 10-0 run. The Lady Lions then converted steals on three straight Georgetown possessions, culminating in Alex Bentleys easy layup for an 18-9 lead with 14:47 left in the first half. No. 15 Purdue 68, Tenn.-Martin 60MARTIN, Tenn. Sam Ostarello scored 14 of her 16 points in the second half and Taylor Manuel also scored 16 as No. 15 Purdue overcame a challenge from Tennessee-Martin to win 68-60 after trailing at halftime. The Boilermakers (9-1) opened the second half with a 15-0 run, including nine points by Ostarello, to lead 40-29. Purdue shot 53.8 percent (14 of 26) in the second half to 26.7 percent (8 of 30) for the Skyhawks (4-7) and out-rebounded them 24-11. Consecutive 3-pointers by Katie Schubert and Heather Butler gave the Skyhawks a 1716 lead with 7:48 left in the first half. The lead reached seven points, 27-20, after 3-pointers by Jasmine Newsome and Schubert. No. 17 Kansas 97, Newman 64 LAWRENCE, Kan. Carolyn Davis scored 24 points and No. 17 Kansas never trailed in a 97-64 victory over Newman. Ten Jayhawks scored in the contest as Kansas (8-1) built a 51-31 lead at halftime. Davis was 11 of 16 from the field Kansas shot 55 percent and matched the team high with nine rebounds. Chelsea Gardner had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Jayhawks. Angel Goodrich added 11 points and Monica Engelman scored 10. No. 20 Ohio St. 81, Lafayette 41 COLUMBUS, Ohio Tayler Hill scored 19 points and No. 20 Ohio State never trailed in defeating Lafayette 81-41 for its 28th consecutive win at home. Hill, who has scored in double figures in 42 straight games, hit a 3-pointer 20 seconds into the contest and the Buckeyes (6-2) never looked back. They led 38-16 at halftime and by as many as 47 points, 78-31, with 4:11 left in the game. Rookie steps up Nicholsons 19 pushes Magic past Suns Associated PressPHOENIX Rookie Andrew Nicholson scored nine of his career-high 19 points in the fourth quarter and the Orlando Magic pulled away to hand the Phoenix Suns their seventh loss in a row, 98-90 on Sunday night. Nicholson made 9 of 11 shots and grabbed nine rebounds, also the best of his young career. J.J. Redick scored 17 of his 20 points in the first half for the Magic in the final stop of their five-game road trip. Shannon Brown scored 17 and Jared Dudley 15 for the Suns, who were without starting point guard Goran Dragic due to illness. Phoenixs losing streak is its longest since 2004. Knicks 112, Nuggets 106 NEW YORK Carmelo Anthony returned from a twogame absence with 34 points against his former team, and the New York Knicks beat the Denver Nuggets 112-106 to remain the NBAs lone unbeaten team at home. Back in the starting lineup after missing two games with a cut on the middle finger of his left hand that required stitches, Anthony twice made baskets in the final 2:08 after Denver had pulled within four points. Jason Kidd scored 17 points for the Knicks, who bounced back from their worst offensive performance of the season a night earlier in Chicago and improved to 8-0 at Madison Square Garden. Tyson Chandler and J.R. Smith each had 15 points. Ty Lawson had 23 points and Danilo Gallinari had 21 points and nine rebounds against the team that drafted him and later dealt him in the package for Anthony in February 2011.Thunder 104, Pacers 93 OKLAHOMA CITY Kevin Durant scored 27 points, Kevin Martin added 24 and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Indiana Pacers 104-93 for their eighth straight win. A meeting of the NBAs highest-scoring offense and the leagues stingiest defense went the way of the Thunder, who eclipsed 100 points for the 12th straight game. Of course, Oklahoma City boasts the NBAs second-best defense to go with all that offensive firepower. Russell Westbrook added 21 points and came up with a big block against 7-foot-2 center Roy Hibbert 11 inches taller than him during a late 8-0 burst by the Thunder that put it away after the Pacers had pulled within three. David West led the way with 21 points for Indiana, which had all five of its starters score in double figures. Bucks 97, Nets 88 NEW YORK Brandon Jennings scored 26 points, Monta Ellis had 24 points and the Milwaukee Bucks withstood Brooklyns fourth-quarter rally in a 97-88 victory over the Nets. The Bucks led by 29 points with 6:59 left in the third quarter but Brooklyn got within six after Deron Williams found Kris Humphries open for an uncontested dunk. Ellis layup then made it 8779 before the Nets called a timeout with 2:24 left in regulation. On the ensuing play, Gerald Wallace lost his balance and the ball and Milwaukees Larry Sanders made a reverse layup to extend the Bucks lead to 10 points. MarShon Brooks, who scored 14 points, then hit a 3-pointer to bring the Nets within seven but Marquis Daniels hit a 3-pointer to put the game out of reach. Williams had 18 points and eight assists and Wallace added 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Nets. Clippers 102, Raptors 83 LOS ANGELES Jamal Crawford led a fourth-quarter rally by the reserves with 16 points and the Los Angeles Clippers defeated Toronto 102-83 on Sunday to win their sixth in a row while handing the Raptors their 10th consecutive road loss. The backups gave the Clippers their first double-digit lead of the game after Toronto kept it close through the first three periods before dropping its fourth straight and 10th in its last 11. The Raptors have just four wins this season.

And she actually set for us for one station. Her statistics bear her serving ability out. St. Martin had a 92.9 percent service rate, with 148 points including 33 aces. This year, I thought I improved all-around, St. Martin said in reflecting on her season. For my AAU club, I had to focus on defense, but I also wanted to work on all my skills. Her chance to play in the FACA All-Star Game was insightful for St. Martin. I actually thought I was in college, she said, referring to all the talent surrounding her. Im thinking about playing in college. Just where shell play next has not yet been determined. But St. Martins allaround ability on the court should make her a much relished addition to any college team. within three points, meaning Philadelphia needed a TD when the offense got the ball back with less than three minutes to go. Foles kept the final drive alive with a 3-yard run on fourth-and-1 from the Tampa Bay 31. It looked as though the Bucs might hang on before the rookie moved around to buy some time and threw 22 yards to Avant cutting across the middle to keep the Eagles hopes live. Avant had seven receptions for 133 yards. This a special game ... its a big win for us, Foles said. We havent won in like two months. The emotions are going crazy right now. Martin put together the fourth 100-yard game of his career on 28 carries. Freeman threw TD passes of 1 yard to Mike Williams and 13 yards to Vincent Jackson, who finished with six receptions for 131 yards. The Eagles (4-10) won for the first time since beating the New York Giants 19-17 on Sept. 30. They led 10-0 at the half, but helped the Bucs get back in the game with their only turnover early in the third quarter. Punt returner Damaris Johnson fumbled a fair catch, and Tampa Bays Dekoda Watson recovered at the Eagles 5 to set up Freemans first touchdown pass. Most of the members of Tampa Bays 2002 championship team, including Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, John Lynch, Simeon Rice and Keyshawn Johnson, returned to town for a dinner Saturday night and were recognized during a halftime ceremony capped by the introduction of coach Jon Gruden, who trotted out of the tunnel carrying the Super Bowl trophy. The only player remaining from that roster whos still playing in the NFL is 16th-year pro, Ronde Barber, made his 212th consecutive start Sunday. It was his interception and 92-yard run that clinched Tampa Bays 27-10 victory over the Eagles in the NFC championship game. It was nice to see all those guys, but it had nothing to do with the product on the field (today), Barber said. So it doesnt hurt more or less. Its 2012, and that was 10 years ago. They celebrated, rightfully, but is has nothing to do with this 2012 team. Notes: Barber had nine tackles. ... Martin, with 1,234 yards, moved past Carnell Williams (1,178) for the most yards rushing in a season by a Tampa Bay rookie. ... Tampa Bay DT Roy Miller was inactive after not practicing most of the week because of a head injury. The fourth-year pro was replaced in the starting lineup by Gary Gibson. ... Tampa Bay limited the Eagles to 29 yards rushing. Foles had 27 of them. ... The Buccaneers had a season-high six sacks. not sputter in the big bad SEC. Texas A&M averaged 552 yards per game and 44 points. Manziel smashed Cam Newtons total offense record with 4,600 yards passing and rushing. You look what our offense did this year. People didnt really think that we were going to have mush success in the SEC. They said these smashmouth, hard-nose defenses and this gimmick offense ... wont work. For us to come into Alabama and some of the other games and really stress tempo, tempo, tempo. We want to move fast. We want to make people uncomfortable. That was our main goal this year. Our offense with coach Sumlin and what coach Kingsbury did, I love it. I love everything about it. Its definitely something that can work if you have the right people in place for it. Kingsbury said he and Sumlin didnt quite realize what they had in Manziel early on. All spring coach Sumlin would blow the whistle because the defense was close, and (Manziel would) come over ... spike the ball, God! They wouldnt have got me. Im like, OK, Johnny, sure they wouldnt have got you. Come to find out they wouldnt have got him. Potentially, Texas A&M will have many of its best pieces in place next season. Receiver Mike Evans is a freshman, too, and has future first-round draft pick written all over him. Texas A&M has an offensive line that rivals Alabamas with two stud tackles in Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews. Both of those big boys are juniors. The first-round of the NFL draft could await Joeckel is being projected as a top-10 pick. Getting them back to College Station for another year will be tough. But if Aggies fans are allowed to dream, theres no reason why A&Ms offense cant be even better next season. Even if Manziels numbers arent. Theres only so much defenses can do to hem in Manziel, who is a master of making something out of nothing. But football is a game of adjustments. Defenses will search for ways to rein in Johnny Football. Sumlins response might be to get his running backs more involved. The Aggies figure to have a stable of good ones next season. Manziel could be as good or better next season, but not be able to put up those same video-game numbers. Its a common tale in Heisman history. BYUs Ty Detmer won the award as a junior in 1990, but finished a distance third behind Desmond Howard in 1991. The hard parts winning it again because the expectation level goes up, Detmer said earlier this week. I felt like my senior year I was a much better player than my junior year. Smarter, less turnovers. Didnt have as good a stats, but I felt like I was a better player my senior year. But the expectations were different. Expectations will by sky high in College Station next season. The move to the SEC, hiring Sumlin and the second Heisman in the history of the program and first since John David Crow in 1957 have Aggies hopes soaring. The award for the program is huge, Sumlin said. Theres a lot of programs out there that dont have one. It took a long time for Texas A&M to get to two. Maybe Manziel can buck the trends again and A&M wont have to wait so long to add a third.

The Kansas City Royals have acquired starting pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis from the Tampa Bay Rays for outfielder Wil Myers and a package of minor league prospects. The blockbuster deal announced late Sunday night is the Royals most aggressive move yet under general manager Dayton Moore to shore up a starting rotation that has been abysmal for years. But doing so came at the cost of Myers, the minor leagues top player last season, and a couple more top prospects. The Rays also are getting right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who would have competed for a spot in the Royals rotation this season, along with left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard. Kansas City also will receive a player to be named or cash.

Mexican boxer stops Manny in sixth round Associated PressLAS VEGAS The idea of Manny Pacquiao being knocked out cold was shocking enough. The sight of him face down on the canvas, unresponsive even as bedlam broke out all around him, was positively frightening. Mitt Romney saw it up close from his ringside seat just a few feet away. So did Pacquiaos wife, who broke down in tears and tried to get in the ring to aid her downed husband. Juan Manuel Marquez didnt even bother to look. He was already busy celebrating the knockout of a lifetime. This was boxing at its brutal best, a toe-to-toe slugfest Saturday night that was destined from the opening bell to be decided by fists instead of judges. Both fighters had been down, and both fighters were hurting when Marquez threw a right hand off the ropes with a second left in the sixth round that could be felt all the way in the rafters of the MGM Grand arena. It will go down among the great fights of their era. But it was barely over when the cry arose for the two everso-willing warriors to do it again. When it comes to Pacquiao and Marquez, four fights may not be enough. If you give us a chance, well fight again, Pacquiao said. I was just starting to feel confident and then I got careless. Indeed, the case could be made that Pacquiao was on the verge of a big win himself when Marquez landed the punch that sent him falling face first on the canvas. He had come back from a third round knockdown to drop Marquez in the fifth and was landing big left hands that broke and bloodied the Mexicans nose. After three fights that all went the distance, both fighters had vowed to be more aggressive in their fourth meeting. Pacquiao ended up paying the price for it when he tried to close the sixth round with a flurry, a big mistake against a counterpuncher who drew him into his sights. I knew Manny could knock me out at any time, Marquez said. I threw the perfect punch. Pacquiao, who hadnt been stopped in a fight since 1999 in Thailand when he was a 112-pounder, took several minutes to come around on the canvas before being led to his ring stool. He blew his nose and stared vacantly ahead as the pro-Marquez crowd of 16,348 screamed in excitement. He was taken to the hospital for a precautionary brain scan, then went to his hotel suite, where he ate with wife Jinkee and his entourage and watched a replay of the fight to see what went wrong. Spoiler alert, Pacquiao said as the fight played on the TV. I dont think you are going to like how this ends. His countrymen in the Philippines certainly didnt. The country came to a standstill as it usually does when its hero fights, and for the second fight in a row they were bitterly disappointed. In the southern region where the boxer and congressman lives, some survivors of a powerful typhoon that killed more than 600 people this week watched on a big TV screen in a gym that serves as an emergency shelter in the town of New Bataan. People were really dismayed, town spokesman Marlon Esperanza said. It was like they were hit by another typhoon. What Marquez hit Pacquiao with might have seemed almost as powerful. Pacquiao had dropped Marquez four times in their first three fights, but Marquez had never put him down before he landed a big right hand in the third round for his first knockdown. The power was sure to raise questions about the new bulked-up physique Marquez has at the age of 39, which he said came from hard work under a strength conditioner who once provided steroids to Marion Jones and other track stars. Still, it was a career-defining moment for Marquez, who believes he was robbed by the judges in his first three fights with Pacquiao. The two fought to a draw eight years ago at 125 pounds and Pacquiao was awarded close decisions in the other two fights.

Associated Press LOS ANGELES J ames Bond is in a box-office photo finish with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny over what looks to be the last slow weekend of the holidays. According to studio estimates Sunday, Sonys Bond tale Skyfall took in $11 million to move back to No. 1 in its fifth weekend. That put it narrowly ahead of Paramounts Rise of the Guardians, the animated adventure of Santa, the Easter Bunny and other mythological heroes that pulled in $10.5 million. The two movies inched ahead of Summit Entertainments The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, which had been tops for threestraight weekends. The Twilight finale earned $9.2 million, slipping into a tight race for No. 3 with Disneys Lincoln, which was close behind with $9.1 million. The top movies were bunched up so closely that rankings could change once final weekend revenues are released Monday. The weekends only new wide release, Gerard Butlers romantic comedy Playing for Keeps, flopped with $6 million, coming in at No. 6. Skyfall raised its domestic total to $261.6 million and added $20.3 million overseas to bring its international income to $656.6 million. At $918 million worldwide, Skyfall has the best cash haul ever for the Bond franchise and surpassed Spider-Man 3 at $890 million to become Sonys topgrossing hit. The Twilight finale also is a franchise record-breaker, surpassing the $710 million worldwide haul of last years Breaking Dawn Part 1. The finales domestic total now stands at $268.7 million. It was another traditionally quiet post-Thanksgiving weekend, with big November releases continuing to dominate in the lull before a pre-Christmas onslaught of movies. The box office is expected to soar next weekend with the arrival of part one of The Hobbit, Peter Jacksons The Lord of the Rings prelude. After that comes a steady rush of action, comedy and drama through years end, including Tom Cruises Jack Reacher, Quentin Tarantino and Jamie Foxxs Django Unchained, Seth Rogens The Guilt Trip and Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowes Les Miserables. The last couple of weeks of the year are some of the strongest every year, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. We are on the cusp of some really huge box office. Theres a lot of money still left in the year despite this slow period right now. Hollywoods domestic revenues have topped $10 billion so far this year, with the industry expected to finish 2012 ahead of the alltime high of $10.6 billion set in 2009. Trashed savagely by critics, FilmDistricts Playing for Keeps stars Butler as a washed-up soccer star trying to reconnect with his ex-wife (Jessica Biel) and young son. The all-star cast includes Catherine Zeta-Jones and Uma Thurman as soccer moms with the hots for Butler. In limited release, Bill Murrays Franklin Roosevelt drama Hyde Park on Hudson opened solidly with $83,280 in four theaters, averaging a healthy $20,820 a cinema. By comparison, Playing for Keeps averaged $2,115 in 2,837 theaters. Released by Focus Features, Hyde Park on Hudson stars Murray as Roosevelt, whose intimate relations with a distant cousin (Laura Linney) become both a source of strength and distraction as the president plays host to the king and queen of England on the eve of World War II. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. PSY to serenade Obamas WASHINGTON An annual holiday concert attended by President Barack Obama and his family includes something nontradi tional this year: a performance by South Korean rapper and Internet sensation PSY The Gangnam Style rapper, born Park Jaesang apologized Friday for using what he says was inflammatory and inappropriate language during anti-U.S. protests at concerts in 2002 and 2004. Obama traditionally attends the Christmas in Washington concert of carols and songs to benefit Childrens National Medical Center. The 31st installment is scheduled for Sunday evening at the National Building Museum, and to be hosted for a second year by comedian Conan OBrien Other scheduled performers include Diana Ross, Demi Lovato, Scotty McCreery, Chris Mann of The Voice fame and Smash star Megan Hilty.Ichthus Festival ends ministry WILMORE, Ky. Organizers behind the Ichthus Music Festival based in central Kentucky, one of the oldest Christian music festivals, said they are ending its run after 42 years due to financial difficulties. The board of directors for Ichthus Ministries, Inc. posted a note on their website saying the 2013 festival would be canceled and further operations would be ceased. Aaron Ranson the chairman of the Ichthus Ministries board, told WKYT-TV that the economy has changed over the past decade and attendance has decreased. Organizers said that about 1,000 people bought tickets for the 2013 festival and they can request a refund at www.ichthus festival.org/refund. Katt Williams arrested in Calif. SACRAMENTO, Calif. Comedian Katt Williams has been arrested in northern California on a felony warrant related to a police chase. The Sacramento Bee reported that Williams was arrested Friday night in Dunnigan, about 25 miles north of Sacramento, by Yolo County deputies. The paper said he was released from the county jail Saturday after posting bail. The sheriffs department confirmed Williams arrest.

Associated PressNEW YORK It sure didnt feel like a farewell. The Rolling Stones average age 68-plus, if youre counting were in rollicking form as they rocked the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for 2 1/2 hours Saturday night, their first U.S. show on a mini-tour marking a mind-boggling 50 years as a rock band. And although every time the Stones tour, the inevitable questions arise, whether its The Last Time, to quote one of their songs there was no sign that anything is ending anytime soon. People say, why do you keep doing this? mused 69year-old Mick Jagger, the bands impossibly energetic frontman, before launching into Brown Sugar. Why do you keep touring, coming back? The answer is, youre the reason were doing this. Thank you for buying our records and coming to our shows for the last 50 years. Jagger was in fine form, with strong vocals and his usual swagger strutting, jogging, skipping and pumping his arms like a man half his age. And though he briefly donned a flamboyant feathered black cape for Sympathy for the Devil and later, some red-sequined tails, he was mostly content to prowl the stage in a tight black T-shirt and trousers. The bands guitarists, the brilliant Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, alternated searing solos and occasionally ventured onto a stage extension that brought them closer to the crowd. The now-gray Richards, wearing a red bandana, exuded the easy familiarity of a favorite uncle: While we wait for Ronnie, he said at one point, Ill wish you happy holidays. Watts, the dapper drummer in a simple black T-shirt, smiled frequently at his band mates. The grizzled quartet was joined on Gimme Shelter by Mary J. Blige, who traded vocals with Jagger and earned a huge cheer at the end. Also visiting: the Texas blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr. The sense of nostalgia was heightened by projections on a huge screen of footage of the early days, when the Stones looked like teenagers. At one point, Jagger reminisced about the first time the band played New York in 1964. A carton of milk cost only a quarter then, he said. And a ticket to the Rolling Stones? I dont want to go there, he quipped. It was a reference to the sky-high prices at the current and Counting shows, where even the cheap seats cost a few hundred dollars and a prime seat cost in the $700 range or higher.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 10, 2012 B7 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Augie Boehm has written a primer on the basics of declarer play and defense, Boehms Card Play Essentials (A.L. Ayers Printing). Aimed at a nearbeginner, each of the nine chapters discusses deals and includes highlighted Key Plays. The book ends with six quiz questions and a brief glossary. It is worth reading; I just wish the diagrams had contained suit symbols instead of letters. In this deal from the book, South is in four spades. West leads the diamond two. East takes dummys queen with his ace and shifts to the club two. How should declarer continue? There is no bidding given for any deal. To reach four spades is very aggressive; stopping in three spades would be normal. Here, if three spades is nonforcing (as North wishes), South should pass with his minimum opening. When in a suit contract, declarer should start by counting the losers in his hand. Here, given that East had the diamond ace, South must lose two hearts and one diamond. He might also concede as many as one spade and two clubs. To get home, both black-suit finesses must be winning and a club loser must be ruffed on the board. At trick two, South puts in his club queen. When it holds, he cashes the club ace, and ruffs the club four. Now that he is on the board, he runs the spade jack (assuming East does not cover, of course). When that wins, declarer continues with the spade 10 and (again assuming East does not cover) overtakes with his queen, cashes the spade ace, and concedes those three tricks.

He refused to go swimming with us at the pool, saying it would be too boring. He wouldnt wear a jacket and tie to dinner at the hotels fivestar restaurant, and when I told him he wouldnt be able to go in without them, he said, Fine, Ill get a sandwich somewhere else, and thats what he did. Whenever we went to the beach or shopping, he wouldnt come along and instead toured the city on his own. When I said I didnt care for his tone of voice, he gave me the silent treatment. For the plane ride home, we got him a seat near the aisle so he could stretch out his legs. I told him, You could at least say thank you. Instead, he gave me a dirty look. When I saw that the woman next to him had a toddler who didnt have his own seat, I made my son give up his, and the flight attendant gave him an empty seat near the bulkhead. I got another dirty look for that. I kept trying to ask whether he was OK, but he had the flight attendant tell me to leave him alone. Were planning to visit relatives this winter, and my son says he doesnt want to go. I dread the idea of putting up with this nasty teenager who cant appreciate any of the things we do for him. I want him to stay with his grandparents, but theyd rather not have him because hes moody and they dont like the way he dresses. Id ask my brother, but I dont want to have to reciprocate. Is it OK to let a 17-year-old stay home alone for 10 days? I have people who can check on him. N.Y. Dear N.Y.: Teenagers enjoy family vacations more than they let on, but not if the trips are geared entirely toward the parents preferences. Unless you are 100 percent certain that your son will be responsible for himself and the house, we dont recommend leaving him without ongoing supervision for 10 days. See if you can get a trusted adult to move in for the duration. But we also suggest that you back off a bit. Your son reacts poorly to being fussed over in public by Mommy and Daddy. It embarrasses him. Dear Annie : It seems like only yesterday that several people came by and offered to cut our grass, but no one ever actually cut it. Now the snow is here, and we are unable to shovel our walkway and make a path to the mailbox. We are getting up in age and cannot do these things on our own. Hiring a professional costs more than we can manage on our Social Security. What a great thing it would be for neighbors to teach their children to come across the road with their big riding mower or snowplow and make a couple of sweeps across our yard. We would so appreciate the assistance. No Name, No Location Dear No Name : Even kids expect to be paid, although a good-hearted neighbor may shovel your snow and mow your lawn as a kindness, especially if they own a riding mower or snow blower. But also please check with your local church, which may provide such a service. Dear Annie : Lonely in Nova Scotia says he has no luck with the ladies. I suggest he figure out what traits he really likes in a woman, find someone who has them and let her know how special she is to him. Then he should make sure hes clean and his clothing is up to date. And he should show genuine interest in what she has to say and not just talk and expect her to laugh at his jokes.

Bush remains in stable condition in his third week of hospitalization in Houston for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough. Methodist Hospital spokesman George Kovacik said Sunday there was no change in the 88-year-old Bushs condition. Doctors have said over the past several days that the 41st president continues to improve but theyre in no hurry to release him. Bush was admitted to the hospital the day after Thanksgiving. Bush and his wife, Barbara, divide their time, spending winters in Houston and summers in Kennebunkport, Maine.From wire reports MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS All along theyve said the right thing. Even before Duke Energy became Progress Energys parent company on July 2, Citrus Countys economic leaders embraced the new corporation, hoping to continue a friendly partnership that thrived with Progress and its predecessor, Florida Power Corporation. Commissioner Joe Meek, who heads the county Economic Development Council, reached out to Duke President Jim Rogers with a phone call welcoming Duke to the community. Economic leaders from the company and the county met to discuss the countys strengths and potentials. With the uncertainty of Duke repairing or abandoning the nuclear power plant north of Crystal River, Meek wanted to build a relationship with the new company. He probably didnt envision a day when fellow Commissioner John JJ Kenney would refer to Duke as a bunch of thugs. County officials are reeling from Progress Energy Floridas decision to pay $19.3 million for its 2012 taxes. County officials say the amount owed is closer to $36 million, leaving the school board and county government millions of dollars in the hole well after the fiscal year began. Meek made a direct public plea last week to Rogers to pay the full tax bill, even while the company filed suit against Property Appraiser Geoff Greene over WHAT: County commission/sc hool board joint meeting.

Spokesmen for both Obama and Boehner said they agreed to not release details of the conversation, but emphasized that the lines of communication remain open. The meeting comes as the White House and Congress try to break an impasse over finding a way to stop a combination of automatic tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to kick in at the beginning of next year. Obama met in November with Boehner, as well as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. The president spoke by telephone with Reid and in person with Pelosi on Friday. Obama has been pushing higher tax rates on the wealthiest Americans as one way to reduce the deficit a position Boehner and other House Republicans have been steadfastly against. Republicans are demanding steeper cuts in costly government entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerTables around the room were filled with individuals and papers mounted about. Attendees were deep in conversation as they listened to advice from their budget coaches. Sixty registered attendees were present for one main goal financial literacy. Earn It, Keep It, Save It, a free financial literacy forum, was held Friday at the College of Central Florida. Residents needing financial direction were invited to gain information about budgeting, credit and lending, county housing resources, building banking relationships and home efficiency with weatherization. Patty Silvey, Heidi Blanchette, Connie Lobel and Brenda Mobely were among those who conducted these impact segments in classrooms. Through five segments, participants learned how to manage their personal finances and impacting their lives. This is such a great opportunity for folks to learn more about resources that are available in the community, United Way CEO Amy Meek said. There are a lot of great resources here today that attendees can utilize along with budgeting information. United Way partnered with University of Florida/IFAS Extension Master Money Mentors, SunTrust, Center State Bank, Bank of America, Capital City Bank, Weatherization Works (who partners with Progress Energy) and Citrus County Board of County Commissioners in providing the five financial courses. United Way is trying to support the agencies that provide immediate assistance, said United Way member and budget coach Ned Barry. Also, we want to provide a way for people to move out of an immediate emergency and build their lives. We call that impact. We have an education impact, health impact and income impact. I am heading up the income impact committee, which is trying to put together resource providers with those who need those resources. We want to solve problems instead of just fixing them on an emergency basis. Attendees also received a money management calendar from the Master Money Mentors program. Every month in the calendar gives participants resources for managing their monthly finances. Fourteen trained budget coaches were available for one-on-one budget counseling in helping individuals create savings each month for an impact on their financial life. We are taking a full half-hour to go through the financial management calendar that we have provided for them, said Brandon Peterson, coordinator of Florida Master Money Mentors HUD Education and Counseling Services with the University of Florida. They are documenting their due dates for their fixed expenses. We are also encouraging them to set up a pay-yourself-first savings plan. Participants today make a commitment to save each month through our Florida Saves 2020 program, which is a program off of the America Saves national campaign program. They are committing to $1 or $2 a day. If they can do that, it can be as much as $10 a month to as much as reaching a specific goal that they are looking to do. In response to surveys, attendees reported creating avenues of future savings of $100 per month one participant reported $152.09. YMCA, Early Learning Coalition, Withlacoochee Technical Institution, CF, Master Money Mentors and Workforce Connection had tables available for guidance in other areas of personal need. One of the focusways for United Way is education, said CF Citrus campus vice president Vernon Lawter. That is our main mission. Where we share a mission, two partners are better than one. We just want to be a part of serving the community. If helping to educate them on better ways to budget their finances is one way we can do it, we want to do it. Furthermore, Publix and Walmart joined the financial literacy forum in providing the attendees with free breakfast and lunch. In addition, two 18-pound bags of food were donated by the Community Food Bank of Citrus County for each person to take home. Spaghetti, cereal, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, a variety of soups, spaghetti sauce and much more was included in each bag. Also, during December, the countys bus, the Orange Line, will be offering free fixed-route bus rides. A followup to the communityimpact event will be held on January 11. After a month of utilizing the financial advice and calendar, partners with United Way and Master Money Mentors want to reconnect with individuals to offer any further information that is needed in continuing to make a bigger impact on personal finances. This means a lot to the community that United Way is putting forth an effort in the impact areas that we have gone to, said United Way board president Marie Straight. We are focusing on education, income and health. People are really excited about it. The presenters come from all walks and professions in our community. This is an activity that we are doing so that people get a hand up instead of a handout.

Workshop aims to teach prudent fiscal practices CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterWithin about three hours of setting paw in Pasco County, Aspen had a loving new home. Not that every homeless Siberian husky should head south for a better life: Aspens assignment came about as the result of the continuing work of the Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS). Through its members constant networking, the countys abandoned pets get placed where they are wanted all over the country. Aspen happens to be the groups 500th success story, from one rescue nonprofit working with another. When they took Aspen, this particular rescue had two or three families lined up, said Michael DeRose, FOCCAS president and rescue volunteer with animal services. They were confident she would go home pretty quick. DeRose drove Aspen part of the way to Pasco County, where he met the man from the other rescue group. He said goodbye to Aspen as he handed her over. He called me about 4 oclock and said, Shes on her way to her new home, DeRose said. They already had these preapproved adopters and theyd already done all the home checks. The first family that came and saw her just absolutely fell in love with her. That family already owned another young husky, which they brought along to see how the two dogs played together. It was a perfect match, as Aspen found a new best friend. Originally, Aspen came in as a stray (to county animal services), DeRose said. She got adopted locally here, but although the people seemed to be genuine, I thought she was going to be too much dog for them. Huskies are very active dogs, especially when they are young. Aspen had a constant need to run around, sometimes escaping from her yard. They finally called me and said, Could you just come and get her? DeRose said. Having worked before with the husky rescue group in Pasco County, DeRose was certain he could get them to find Aspen a good home. Nothing bad was going to happen to her, DeRose said. As the owner of huskies himself since he was 7 years old, DeRose knows the breed to have sweet personalities and an adventurous spirit that makes them bolt out of an open door or gate when they see the chance. In his work with FOCCAS, DeRose specializes in huskies and other big breeds. You may think you have an escape-proof yard, but huskies are very creative and can find a way out, DeRose said. For their sweetness and good looks athletic with beautiful blue eyes huskies have a lot of appeal to dog owners, but they are high-maintenance with their exercise needs. DeRose said he has seen the breed adopted and then surrendered back to animal services for that reason. That is where a breedspecific rescue group can help find homes for dogs with such known characteristics. Since its inception more than two years ago, FOCCAS has built strong relationships with many breedspecific rescue groups to place dogs where they are wanted. They have connections all over Florida and in many other states. DeRose said dogs have been taken to new homes as far north as New England. Some breeds are more popular in other states than in Florida the Treeing Walker coonhound, for example. Although hard to place here, Treeing Walkers are highly popular in Tennessee. Other FOCCAS volunteers specialize in specific breeds to build a network of rescue groups to contact when a home is needed. We let people pick whatever breeds they want to work with, DeRose said. The breed-specific rescue groups sometimes take a dog that has no hope of going home with a family just to be sure it will get the care it needs. Aspen is the 500th dog FOCCAS actually has taken and transported to another rescue. The group has placed untold numbers of animals within the county. In addition, FOCCAS raises funds to pay for medical treatment for animals that arrive at the shelter injured, so that the county does not have to pay. FOCCAS members constantly reach out to rescue groups to tell them about the dogs at the shelter, rather than waiting for the rescue groups to ask. We are proactively contacting rescues and doing evaluations, DeRose said. Its a whole team effort. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

His younger brother, who lives north of Orlando, retired as a baker for Publix. Ive been baking for probably 30 years and I never get tired of it; I love doing it, he said. Currently, Peron, 51, bakes for Joes Family Restaurant in Inverness. Before that he owned a bakery in Inverness, first where SunTrust Bank is on U.S. 41 South and then in Citrus Commons Plaza, a few doors down from B&W Rexall, where he stayed for more than six years. It was very successful, Peron said. Restaurants kept asking me for bread and that got to be so much that I closed the retail and did just wholesale bread out of a warehouse on North Apopka. I did that for nine years, baking and delivering bread to restaurants to all of Citrus and all of Marion counties. Its 7:30 on a Friday morning. As the cooks in Joes Restaurants kitchen prepare for the day ahead, Peron has already baked batches of pastries and maybe a cheesecake or a pie or two for the pastry case at the front of the restaurant. On this day hes rolling out dough for biscuits, using the opening of a plastic drinking glass as his biscuit cutter. He works fast and rhythmically as he talks, stopping only to check the oven when a timer goes off. Youve got to have a passion for it, he says. I hope this doesnt sound arrogant, but its like a gift; you have to have a knack for it. People can follow recipes and they still dont come out right. Some people can grow plants when others cant, and some people can bake. He points out the lumps in the biscuit dough. Lumps are good, he says. You dont want to mix biscuits or pie crust too much. When he comes in at 2 a.m., right after making coffee, Peron checks the restaurants pastry case to see what he needs to bake. He has his standards Danishes, cinnamon rolls, muffins, pies. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, he worked 15 hours just baking pies. I like doing different varieties of cheesecakes, he says. Here Ive made 12 to 15 different kinds. In the restaurant kitchen his work space is limited, not like when he had his own bakery. He doesnt have room to make bread, which he misses. He lacks space for the big dough mixers and shelf space for ingredients. He works until everything comes out of the oven and is ready for the days sales. Then he goes home for a nap. Bedtime is about 9 p.m., then up at 1:45 a.m. Bakers never get enough sleep, he says. Bakers dont bake at home, either. But I do cook, he says. I love anything to do with food. His specialty is pizza really, really, really good pizza. Peron says he has never wanted to do anything else, ever since he watched his dad bake, ever since he learned to punch down rising bread dough and turn flour, sugar and butter into something wonderful. Its not easy work, he says. Its early mornings and a lot of hard work. If you dont love it, find something else to do. But if you love it, all that doesnt matter.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline. com or 352-564-2927.A4MONDAY, DECEMBER10, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/STATE To start your subscription:Call now for home delivery by our carriers:Citrus County: 352-563-5655 Marion County: 888-852-2340 13 weeks: $36.65* 6 months: $64.63* 1 year: $116.07**Subscription price includes a separate charge of .14 per day for transportation cost and applicable state and local sales tax.

Seminole County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Heather Smith told the Orlando Sentinel two men trying to sell the ATV through a Craigslist ad were confronted by two armed men Saturday afternoon at a Lake Mary apartment complex. Smith said one of the men selling the ATV was armed as well and exchanged gunfire with the attackers. One attacker was killed. Smith said the other was shot several times but fled the scene on foot. Deputies later found the man hiding in a nearby home.Man pleads guilty to smuggling birds in pantsMIAMI Federal authorities said a Miami man faces up to 20 years in prison for trying to smuggle birds from Cuba into the United States in his pants. Alberto Diaz Gonzalez pleaded guilty Thursday to attempting to import undeclared wildlife from the Caribbean island. The U.S. Attorneys office said Diaz will be sentenced in February. A message left Sunday for Diazs federal public defender was not immediately returned. Diaz returned Oct. 20 to Miami from Havana. According to court documents, he told U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at Miamis airport he was not carrying any wildlife. Authorities said when officers searched Diaz, they found 16 Cuban bullfinches hidden in his pants. Diaz told the officers he got the birds in Cuba and planned to sell them here.From wire reports Gulf water temperature2

duces other live shows such as Disney on Ice, also plans to relocate its global headquarters from Vienna, Va., to Manatee County over the next five years. Costumes, sets, lights and sound equipment that Feld currently keeps on a 4-acre campus in Palmetto also will move to Ellenton. After the first of the year, we are going to start migrating from Palmetto, Payne said. Were hoping to have it up and running on a much larger scale by next summer. The Ellenton campus also will be available to outside touring companies, Payne said. Feld, a privately held family company, bought the circus in 1967. Company officials told The Associated Press earlier this year that its business remains steady, with the circus drawing more than 10 million people a year to its shows in the U.S. Feld will keep its 148 existing employees and is expected to add 235 new jobs over the next five years, according to the Manatee Economic Development Corp. We are already moving certain people down to Florida from Virginia, Payne said. After the move is completed, we will continue to add jobs locally from Manatee and surrounding counties. We want to become part of the community and one of the large employers in the county. the assessed valuation of the companys energy complex north of Crystal River. Meek and other county officials involved in the Progress tax dispute say the company, led by Rogers, purposely waited until after the tax year began to make its payment, knowing it would place local governments at a financial disadvantage to fight the company in court. While Meek said he is disappointed with Duke, he hopes the company can restore its name by, as Meek calls it, doing the right thing. We seek to have a great relationship with Duke, he said. Unfortunately, this issue is causing an extreme amount of friction. Meek noted that Duke recently donated $7,000 to the EDC to help find suitable property for industries looking to relocate. He said thats a good sign, but Meek acknowledged the breakdown that now exists wont go away until the two sides settle the tax dispute. What kind of relationship do we have when they put us in this kind of situation? Meek said. We need to call it what it is. They can save this. We can come to a resolution and move forward. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said he now realizes Dukes decisions are solely based on the bottom line. The countys relationship with Duke should be more formal, he said. If it makes business sense for them to make decisions that benefit the community, then they will, Thorpe said. Meek said he still wants a relationship with Duke, the countys largest taxpayer and employer. We obviously want them in our community, he said, and then added: But not (to) take advantage of us.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicle online.com.

Associated PressNEW YORK Emerald is no longer green with envy. The rich, vibrant shade is Pantone LLCs Color of the Year for 2013, beating out all the other shades of the rainbow. The company, which creates and matches colors for the fashion, home and beauty industries, among others, picks its top hue based on both how its already being used and a prediction of sustained popularity. Greens time had come, says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantones research arm known as the Pantone Color Institute. The entire green family has been so strong, upcoming through the s as were paying attention to nature, so the family isnt new, but what we needed to look at and revisit was the psychological background: Emerald is such a balanced color, and balance is something to pick up on and listen to, she explains. Eiseman adds, Its a color of growth, renewal, healing, unity and regeneration words were all so in need of at this point of history. On the runways, emerald green was spotted for 2013 at Michael Kors, Nanette Lepore and Vivienne Tam. Tracy Reese took her bow wearing green. In the home category, green is almost like a neutral, complementing almost everything else, Eiseman says: Pair it with tan, black, blue or even yellow. She has seen it used for an espresso maker, kitchen stool and a mixer. Sephora is very happy with the recognition of this color, says Margarita Arriagada, the companys senior vice president of merchandising. She envisions it as an instant hit as an eye shadow, liner, mascara and nail polish. Its a passionate color, and it gives our client a lot of wearability. The orange shade called Tangerine Tango that Pantone made its top color for 2012 worked for makeup, even though one might not think it would, Arriagada says. I can tell you, with conviction, that what happened with Tangerine Tango was transformative. It was like our customer had permission to venture out there with something new and experienced color in a new way. A reddish-pink shade called Honeysuckle and turquoise blue are other recent Pantone picks. Colors rise and fall in popularity just like other style-centric trends, says Eiseman, but she thinks green has staying power like few others. It has taken on meaning as a noun and a verb as well as an adjective. It might have been a trend, but it has become a social cause so its just part of our world. ... Kermit said its not easy being green, but it became easier once it became a good thing to be green.A6MONDAY, DECEMBER10, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Office Locations: Crystal River & Inverness 352-795-5700 802924-01 000DGYH Over 2000 people have participated in Gardner Audiology Research Studies Gardner Audiology 2012 LEND US YOUR EARS Starkey, Americas largest manufacturer of hear ing instruments is partnering with Gardner Audiology for a field study of consumer satisfac tion with newly patented hearing aid technology.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Just six blocks from the White House, the FBIs hulking headquarters overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue has long been the government building everyone loves to hate. The verdict: Its an ugly, crumbling concrete behemoth, an architectural mishap all 2.4 million square feet of it. But in this time of tight budgets, massive deficits and the fiscal cliff, the 38year-old FBI headquarters building has one big thing in its favor. It sits atop very valuable real estate, an entire city block on Americas Main Street, midway between the U.S. Capitol and the White House. Just how valuable? The General Services Administration intends to find out. This past week, the agency that oversees all federal buildings issued an invitation to developers: How would you like to build a new headquarters for the FBI in a different location? In exchange, well consider throwing in the J. Edgar Hoover building and the underlying land as part of the transaction. Were testing the marketplace, the GSAs acting administrator, Dan Tangherlini, said in an interview. We think we have very valuable property. How much is it worth? Tangherlini wants to see if it could be traded for a property that better meets current needs. The finish line is still a long way off. But in perhaps seven years, according to an estimate last year by the Government Accountability Office, the FBI could be in a new home at a fresh location in Washington or one of its surrounding counties. The J. Edgar Hoover building may not be praised as architecture, but the current building has become part of American culture. Half a million visitors a year took the FBI tour. The bureau even met with Walt Disney executives to see how Disneys operation handled big crowds. People on the tour sometimes recognized faces on the FBIs Ten Most Wanted exhibit and tipped off agents. The tours ended when the bureau moved its laboratory, a highlight of the tour, to its training center in Quantico, Va. Over the years, the building cropped up in news broadcasts, novels, television dramas and movies. Arlington Road, a fictional 1999 movie about domestic terrorists, ended with a shot, produced by Hollywoods imaging magic, of the structure being blown to bits by a truck bomb. What will really happen to the Hoover building? If last years report from the GAO, Congress investigative arm, is any indication, a developer might want to knock it down and start over. That report displayed photographs of concrete facing that came loose and had to be removed from the buildings exterior. Another problem: Rainwater runoff infiltrated the basement. Solution: The FBI juryrigged a plastic chute that directed the rainwater into a recycling bin. On the outside, its ugly; on the inside, its not hideous. Its just that horrifying world of modern sheet rock corridors, says Hank Griffith, a museum exhibitions coordinator who spent 15 years as an FBI clerical worker. In 1974, agents started moving into the new building from cramped quarters in the Justice Department across the street. The FBI building, which cost $126.1 million to build back then, occupies a 6.66-acre square block in the central business district. Heres what planners have in mind. We envision that if and when the FBI relocates that the site be reconsidered for mixed use as office space with retail, restaurants, cultural and residential components, said Elizabeth Miller of the National Capital Planning Commission, an independent federal agency. That goal could be achieved by either starting over or reusing the building there now, a planning commission document says. Miller cites the Newseum, which was built along Pennsylvania Avenue, as one example of what the planning commission envisions. The commissions vision would dramatically transform the current state of affairs. The FBI building is an example of Brutalist architecture derived from the French beton brut meaning raw concrete, a popular style in the 1960s and 1970s. The building wasnt originally intended to be quite so cold and forbidding. City planners envisioned shops and buildings with open courtyards along a redeveloped Pennsylvania Avenue. Initially, the FBI agreed, but the bureaus final design modified that for security reasons. FBI officials explained that the first floor along Pennsylvania Avenue was closed with marble facing rather than leased to shops for fear foreign agents might find a way to use the shops as a base to eavesdrop on the bureau. The public was blocked off from the buildings center courtyard, also for security. The current FBI building was designed to be a giant filing cabinet for investigative records, a purpose now made largely superfluous with the advent of the digital age, the GSAs Tangherlini said. As the FBI has shifted priorities to fight terrorism, the headquarters workforce has increased steadily for more than a decade, from 10,000 to over 17,000. But many of the headquarters employees arent working at headquarters. Overcrowding has pushed them into annexes scattered around Washington. There are serious security issues at those locations where the FBI must share space with multiple tenants. Consolidation is urgently needed and we view this as one of our highest priorities for the foreseeable future, the FBI told the GAO in a letter a year and a half ago. End may be near for unloved Hoover building Associated PressThe Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters are pictured Feb. 3 in Washington, D.C. Just six blocks from the White House, the FBIs hulking headquarters overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue has long been the government building everyone loves to hate. The verdict: its an ugly, crumbling concrete behemoth.

valorem taxes dwindled through declining property values during a prolonged national economic recovery. That slowdown alone had taken county staff and the board through a major budget-paring exercise this year. On Nov. 6, the BOCC heard a presentation by Heather Encinosa, an attorney with Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson, a firm that specializes in local government finance. The board has commissioned the firm to prepare the report. Encinosa told the board that in spite of the countys efforts to cut spending, its budget projections still showed multimillion-dollar shortfalls. Encinosa offered several options aside from increasing the millage rate for ad valorem taxes for the county to continue funding its programs, maintenance and services. These included MSBUs (Municipal Service Benefits Units), MSTUs (Municipal Services Taxing Units), utility franchises, a local-option sales tax, surtaxes, a utility availability fee and charging more for user fees, as diversified revenue sources. In pursuing these sources, at 2 p.m. the board will open a public hearing affecting three neighborhoods Flying Dutchman Estates, Country Oaks and Hernando City Heights that would be subject to an MSBU. With an MSBU, a special assessment is imposed to cover the cost of providing a service or improvement to a particular area. After hearing public comment, the board will decide whether to create a resolution to use the uniform method of the levy, collection and enforcement of non-ad valorem special assessments, established in Florida statutes, for those road expenses. After a second public hearing at 2:30 p.m., the BOCC will deliberate a similar concept regarding special assessments throughout the unincorporated and all incorporated areas of the county for the cost of providing fire protection services and facilities, storm water services and facilities and roadway maintenance, improvements and associated services and facilities. In addition to the use of MSBUs, some of these services could be sourced through MSTUs. An MSTU is a straight millage rate used to fund programs not paid for by regular millage. Another public hearing at 3:15 p.m. will concern the application to the state for a proposed enterprise zone in a northwest area of the county along U.S. 19 at the site of the proposed Port Citrus project. The boards action would establish the enterprise zone area, create an enterprise zone development authority and pass a resolution to adopt an enterprise zone strategic plan. Last week, the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission unanimously recommended approval of the strategic plan to the BOCC. The county must make the application to the state by Dec. 31. County Administrator Brad Thorpe also will ask the board to approve submission of a new RESTORE Act funding application for the Sugarmill Woods Wastewater Treatment Facility Expansion and Reclaimed Water Upgrades Project. Thorpe also will ask the board to approve the revised project ranking: Cross Florida Barge Canal Boat Ramp, Crystal River Kings Bay Sediment Removal, Sugarmill Woods Wastewater Treatment Facility Expansion and Reclaimed Water Upgrades, Homosassa Southfork Water Quality Improvement Project Phase IV and Homosassa Wastewater Collection System Phase V. From 1:30 p.m., the board will present certificates and proclamations. A proclamation will acknowledge Dale McClellan as Sunbelt Expo Southeastern Farmer of the Year. Diane Reichard, president-elect of the Florida Government Finance Officers Association, will present to Betty Strifler, clerk of the court, the award for Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be contacted at cvanormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Senate Republicans would probably agree to higher tax rates on the wealthiest Americans if it meant getting a chance to overhaul entitlement programs. The comments by Bob Corker of Tennessee a fiscal conservative who has been gaining stature in the Senate as a pragmatic deal broker puts new pressure on Boehner and other Republican leaders to rethink their long-held assertion that even the very rich shouldnt see their rates go up next year. GOP leaders have argued that the revenue gained by hiking the top two tax rates would be trivial to the deficit, and that any tax hike hurts job creation. But Corker said insisting on that red line especially since Obama won reelection after campaigning on raising tax rates on the wealthy may not be wise. There is a growing group of folks looking at this and realizing that we dont have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end, Corker told Fox News Sunday. If Republicans agree to Obamas plan to increase rates on the top 2 percent of Americans, Corker added, the focus then shifts to entitlements and maybe it puts us in a place where we actually can do something that really saves the nation. Besides getting tax hikes through the Republicandominated House, Corkers proposal faces another hurdle: Democrats havent been receptive to GOP proposals on the entitlement programs. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin, DIll., on Sunday was skeptical about proposals to increase the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 67. He said he doesnt see Congress addressing the complicated issue of Medicare overhaul in the three weeks remaining before the end of the year. I just dont think we can do it in a matter of days here before the end of the year, Durbin said. We need to address that in a thoughtful way through the committee structure after the first of the year. And hard-line fiscal conservatives in the House are holding fast to their position. No Republican wants to vote for a rate tax increase, said Rep. Jeb Hensarling, RTexas, chairman of the House Republican Conference. Added Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.: Im not sure there is support for the rate hikes. There is support for revenue by cleaning up the code. Still, at least one House Republican has said there is another way. Rep. Tom Cole, of Oklahoma, has said Obama and Boehner should agree not to raise tax rates on the majority of Americans and negotiate the rates for top earners later. Cole said Sunday that most House Republicans would vote for that approach because it doesnt include a rate hike. You know, its not waving a white flag to recognize political reality, Cole said. Sen. Tom Coburn, ROkla., already has said he could support higher tax rates on upper incomes as part of a comprehensive plan to cut the federal deficit. When asked Sunday what it would take to sign on to a tax rate increase, Coburn echoed Corkers comments by responding, Significant entitlement reform. He quickly added, however, that he has estimated that such a tax rate increase would only affect about 7 percent of the deficit. Will I accept a tax increase as a part of a deal to actually solve our problems? Yes, Coburn said. But the presidents negotiating with the wrong people. He needs to be negotiating with our bondholders in China, because if we dont put a credible plan on the discussion, ultimately, we all lose. Obamas plan would raise $1.6 trillion in revenue over 10 years, partly by letting decade-old tax cuts on the countrys highest earners expire at the end of the year. He would continue those Bush-era tax cuts for everyone except individuals earning more than $200,000 and couples making above $250,000. The highest rates on top-paid Americans would rise from 33 percent and 35 percent to 36 percent and 39.6 percent. Boehner has offered $800 billion in new revenues to be raised by reducing or eliminating unspecified tax breaks on upper-income people.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys comments about 47 percent of the population dependent on the government and binders full of women topped this years best quotes, according to a Yale University librarian. Fred Shapiro, associate librarian at Yale Law School, released his seventh annual list of the most notable quotations of the year. Debate remarks and gaffes actually seemed to play an important role in the ups and downs of the election campaign and may even have affected the ultimate outcome of the election, Shapiro said. Heres the list: 1. There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what ... who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. ... These are people who pay no income tax. ... and so my job is not to worry about those people. Ill never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. Mitt Romney, remarks at private fundraiser, Boca Raton, Fla., May 17 2. We took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet (in Massachusetts). I went to a number of womens groups and said, Can you help us find folks? and they brought us whole binders full of women. Mitt Romney, second presidential debate, Hempstead, N.Y., Oct. 16 3. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If youve got a business you didnt build that. Barack Obama, remarks at campaign appearance, Roanoke, Va., July 13 4. Please proceed, Governor. Obama, second presidential debate, Hempstead, N.Y., Oct. 16. 5. You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military has changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines. Obama, third presidential debate, Boca Raton, Fla., Oct. 22 6.

Associated PressCompensation for private college presidents has continued to drift upward, while the number crossing the $1 million barrier a signal of prestige, and a magnet for criticism held steady at 36, according to a new survey. The latest annual compilation by The Chronicle of Higher Education covers data from 2010, due to lag time in the release of federal tax information. That year, median compensation for the 494 presidents in the survey leaders of institutions with budgets of at least $50 million was $396,649, or 2.8 percent higher than in last years survey. But median base salary fell slightly, by less than 1 percent. The highest paid was Bob Kerrey, who was president of The New School in New York until December 2010 before returning to Nebraska, where he made an unsuccessful run to return to the U.S Senate. Kerreys total compensation was valued at just over $3 million. His base salary was just over $600,000, but he received the remainder in the form of a retention bonus, deferred compensation and other benefits. It is common for such payments to inflate compensation for presidents in their final year in a position. Three presidents in 2010s top 10 are no longer at those institutions: Kerrey, David Pollick of Birmingham-Southern College, and Steven Sample of the University of Southern California. The highest-paid in 2010 who remains on the job is Shirley Ann Jackson of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, who was No. 2 at $2.34 million, followed by Pollick, at $2.31 million. The highest base salary belonged to John Sexton of New York University and totaled $1.24 million out of $1.48 million total compensation. The Chronicle has previously compiled salary data for the presidents of public institutions, which was available for 2011. Associated PressNEW YORK Bankrupt battery maker A123 Systems Inc. on Sunday said it will sell most of its assets to the U.S. arm of Chinese auto parts conglomerate Wanxiang Group Corp. for $256.6 million. Wanxiang America Corp. won an auction conducted under the supervision of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. A123s government business will be sold separately, for $2.25 million, to Navitas Systems, of Woodridge, Ill. A hearing seeking the necessary court approval of the sale is scheduled for Tuesday. The deal must also be OKd by the Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States, a federal inter-agency committee that reviews sales of U.S. companies to foreign owners. The company has about 2,000 employees. Waltham, Mass.-based A123, which makes lithium ion batteries for electric cars, grid storage and commercial and military applications, was awarded a $249 million grant from the Department of Energy in August 2009 to help it build U.S. factories. About $130 million of that grant was delivered before the company fell victim to the lackluster market for electric cars. In September 2009, it also held a successful initial public offering, raising $380 million as its stock gained more than 50 percent, to close over $20. Shares closed at 13 cents the session before it filed for bankruptcy protection. Despite opening several plants, developing highlytouted new technology, including a battery that could operate in extreme heat or cold, and signing deals with top automakers like General Motors, Chrysler and Indias Tata Motors, the company never posted a profit. In August, it reported an $83 million loss for the second quarter. At the same time, A123 said it reached a financing deal with Wanxiang Group for up to $450 million to help it stay afloat. But still short of cash, the company sought bankruptcy protection in October, and said it would sell its automotive unit to Milwaukee-based auto parts marker Johnson Controls Inc. for $125 million. Wanxiang challenged Johnson Controls role as the primary bidder, and stepped in to provide bankruptcy financing to when the U.S. company declined to do so. In a statement Sunday, Johnson Controls said it officially withdrew from the auction when it declined to match Wanxiangs bid, because the price was higher than the value of the assets to its operations. The Justice Department has said A123 needs the governments consent to sell its assets, maintaining in Bankruptcy Court that any sale must protect the governments interests because of the 2009 grant. DOJ maintained that its assets included the roughly $120 million that wasnt handed over yet under the grant, A123s cost-sharing obligations under federal assistance programs, and property and equipment purchased with government funds. Associated PressLINEVILLE, Ala. Clay County has almost 14,000 residents, around 100 churches and not a single place where you can buy a beer legally. Theres no Bud Light in the cooler at the corner convenience store and no fine wine for sale at the Piggly Wiggly supermarket. But bootleggers a few streets away will sell you a can of beer for $1.25. This scenic but poor county in the hills about 50 miles east of Birmingham harks back to the 1920s, when Prohibition was the law of the land. After a neighboring county recently voted wet, Clay County became the last bone-dry county in Alabama and one of a dwindling number across the nation. Nestled at the southern tip of the Appalachians and lacking so much as a federal highway to bring in visitors, people here pride themselves on scraping by. To some, prohibiting legal alcohol sales is both a moral issue and part of being off the beaten path. Clay County is more of a rural setting. Family values are held more dearly to the heart, said the Rev. Bruce Willis, a staunch alcohol opponent and missions director of the Carey Baptist Association. With 33 churches that have 5,371 members on their rolls, the association accounts for about 39 percent of the countys entire population. Its not that no one drinks in Clay County; possession of limited amounts of alcohol is legal, and plenty of residents buy beer and liquor across county lines and take it home. Its an open secret that bootleggers buy beer or liquor legally elsewhere and sell it in the county, said County Commission Chairman Wayne Watts, a former police chief of Lineville. Its pretty wet to be dry, said Watts, driving through a part of town where empty beer cans litter the ground marking bootleggers homes. But even supporters of legalizing alcohol sales see little chance things will change in a county thats best known for winning high school football teams and its most famous native, the late Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black. Theres just hasnt been an appetite for it, said Matt Hooten, a businessman who splits his time between Clay County and Montgomery and favors the legalization of alcohol sales. The issue last came up for a vote in 1986, when overwhelming opposition from churches helped defeat the proposal 2,716-2,223. Local papers were filled with advertisements and letters from alcohol opponents leading up to the vote. Is placing my approval upon liquor morally right or wrong? Gods word says it is wrong! said one ad, placed by a pro-dry group whose chairman is the namesake for the local National Guard armory. A petition for another referendum died about four years ago, and no one has tried again since then. Jimmy Barton, who remembers buying alcohol from bootleggers years ago and now owns an auto parts store, favors going wet. He still has one of the old petitions with only a few signatures and lots of empty lines where no one signed. Staging a vote requires signatures from 25 percent of the people who voted in the last countywide election, and Barton said hes not sure when that will happen again. Its hard to read. You have closet drinkers who will vote it dry every time, he said. Some business owners and residents say allowing alcohol sales would help bring in new restaurants and promote new development. Stan Gaither, director of the Ashland Housing Authority and a former business owner, envisions restaurants in downtown Lineville or nearby Ashland serving evening meals and wine to out-of-towners who come to hike or ride bikes in Clay Countys endless forests and craggy mountains. Yet the county chamber of commerce hasnt taken an official position on legalization, and executive director Mary Patchunka-Smith said shed never serve alcohol at a chamber event. The topic is too touchy, she said. Its rare to see alcohol at wedding receptions or public events, residents say, yet many people drink at home. Even the Rev. Zenus Windsor, who publicly opposes legalizing alcohol sales in the county, says he buys wine in a neighboring county and drinks a glass at home each night to help keep his high cholesterol in check. I told my church about it, said Windsor, 77. My Lord drank wine. He turned water into wine.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, DECEMBER10, 2012 A9 OUR LADY OF FATIMA CHURCH 550 U.S. HWY. 41 SOUTH, INVERNESS, FL TUESDAY AT NOON & THURSDAY AT 6:30PM $10 Package (Includes Jackpots) $5 Speed Package 000A6ES New: STINGER JACKPOT SPECIAL Progressive Bingo, increases weekly, with a maximum payout of $1199 8 speed games . . . . . . . $50 payout 18 regular games . . . . . $50 payout 2 Jackpots . . . . . . . . . . . $150 and $200 50/50 game Winner take all (If attendance is less than 100, prizes may be reduced) Blackshears II Aluminum 795-9722 Free Estimates www.blackshears.com Licensed & Insured RR 0042388 Years As Your Hometown Dealer RESCREEN SEAMLESS GUTTERS GARAGE SCREENS NEW SCREEN ROOM GLASS ROOM CONVERSIONS 000DDBO HWY. 44 CRYSTAL RIVER 2012 2012 2012 2012 KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS 352/746-6921 Located County Rd. 486 & Pine Cone Lecanto, FL (1/2 Mile East of County Rd. 491) 000DDQY WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY Doors Open 4:30 PM Games Start 6:00 PM PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT ALL PAPER BINGO PRIZES $ 50 TO $ 250 WINNER TAKES ALL POT-O-GOLD Smoke-Free Environment FREE Coffee & Tea TV Monitors for Your Convenience ~ Sandwiches & Snacks ~ 1 Regina Blvd., Beverly Hills (Across From Fire Station) 746-0330Beverly Hills DENTAL CENTER Dentures, Partials & Bridges Invisalign (Removable Braces)Children Welcome Veneers, Bonding, & Extractions One Visit Root Canals Gum Surgery Implants One Hour Whitening Open FridaysRaphael C.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2012 Keeping church and state separateReference is made to Meimans (Dec. 3 letter) being very upset by the Nature Coast Chapter meeting at the public library in Inverness. The Nature Coast chapter is a chapter of Americans for Separation of Church and State, which is a non-partisan educational organization dedicated to preserving the constitutional principal of church-state separation as the only way to ensure religious freedom for all Americans. What I find upsetting is there are people who do not know the law of the land is the U.S. Constitution. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution starts by stating Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or the prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Every U.S. president takes an oath to protect and defend our Constitution. Is it not also our patriotic duty to be vigilant against those who would violate it? Our Florida State Constitution 1868, Article 1, Section 3; Religious freedom There shall be no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting or penalizing the free exercise thereof. .... No revenue of the state or any political subdivision or agency thereof shall ever be taken from the public treasury directly or indirectly in aid of any church, sect, or religious denomination or in aid of any sectarian institution. In November, we Floridians refused Amendment 8, which would have changed our Constitution. Thank God for our countrys Constitution, since it prevents outrageous punishments and edicts meted out based upon Shariah Law (Muslim) as well as laws found in Bible scriptures. We are fortunate to live in a country whose people are free to have diverse beliefs (or none). Imagine if it were mandatory to pay for and support a religion not of your choosing. It had been prior to 1786, Colonial-era Virginia had a system of stateestablished religion and mandatory support, through church taxes, for the Anglican faith. Was Meimen also upset when the Cornerstone Baptist Church held Sunday services at the Citrus Public High School in April 2007? Our chapter is open to the public at the Inverness public library, which provides access to many other secular groups.Augie Nero Inverness Gosh! said Franklin Roosevelt on the death of Yamamoto The New York Times May 22, 1943 WASHINGTONPresident Franklin Roosevelt was truly astonished when told by a reporter Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, architect of the Pearl Harbor attack, had been shot down by U.S. planes over a Pacific island after Americans decrypted Yamamotos flight plans. FDR had encouraged this targeted killing destroying a particular person of military importance a phrase that has become familiar since Israel began doing this in 2000 in combating the second Palestinian intifada. But was the downing of Yamamotos plane an assassination? If British commandos had succeeded in the plan to kill German Gen. Erwin Rommel in Libya in 1941, would that have been an assassination? If President Reagans 1986 attack on military and intelligence targets in Libya, including one Moammar Gaddafi sometimes used as a residence, had killed him, would that have been an assassination? What about the November 2001 CIA drone attack on a Kabul meeting of high-level al-Qaeda leaders that missed Osama bin Laden but killed his military chief? An old executive order and a new technology give these questions urgent pertinence. Executive Order 12333, issued by Reagan in 1981, extended one promulgated by Gerald Ford in 1976 in response to revelations about CIA attempts to assassinate Fidel Castro and affirmed by Jimmy Carter. Order 12333 said: No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination. What, then, of the Navy SEALs who killed bin Laden? The new technology is the armed drone, which can loiter over the suspected location of an important enemy person and, in conjunction with satellite imagery, deliver precisionguided munitions in a matter of minutes. Fortunately, John Yoo of the Berkeley School of Law has written a lucid guide to the legal and moral calculus of combating terrorism by targeting significant enemy individuals. In Assassination or Targeted Killings After 9/11 (New York Law School Law Review, 2011/12) Yoo correctly notes precise attacks against individuals have many precedents and further the goals of the laws of war by eliminating the enemy and reducing harm to innocent civilians. And he clarifies the compelling logic of using drones for targeted killings attacking a specific person rather than a military unit or asset in todays undefined war with a limitless battlefield. To be proper, any use of military force should be necessary, as discriminating as is practical, and proportional to the threat. Waging war, Yoo said, is unlike administering criminal justice in one decisive particular. The criminal justice system is retrospective: it acts after a crime. A nation attacked, as America was on 9/11, goes to war to prevent future injuries, which inevitably involves probabilities and guesses. Todays war is additionally complicated by the fact that, as Yoo said, Americas enemy resembles a network, not a nation. Its commanders and fighters do not wear uniforms; they hide among civilian populations and are not parts of a transparent command and control apparatus. Drones enable the U.S. military which, regarding drones, includes the CIA; an important distinction has been blurred to wield a technology especially potent against al-Qaedas organization and tactics. All its leaders are, effectively, military, not civilian. Killing them serves the military purposes of demoralizing the enemy, preventing planning, sowing confusion and draining the reservoir of experience. Most U.S. wars have been fought with military mass sustained by economic might. But as Yoo said, todays war is against a diffuse enemy who has no territory to invade and no massed forces to crush. So the war cannot be won by producing more tanks, army divisions or naval forces. The United States can win only by destroying al-Qaedas ability to function by selectively killing or capturing its key members. After the terrorist bombings of two U.S. embassies in East Africa in 1998, the Bill Clinton administration launched cruise missiles against suspected terrorist camps in Afghanistan, hoping bin Laden was there. If the missiles had killed him, would this have been improper? In March 2003, in the hours before the invasion of Iraq, the George W. Bush administration, thinking it knew where Saddam Hussein was, launched a cruise missile strike against one of his compounds. Was it wrong to try to economize violence by decapitating his regime? Would it have been morally preferable to attempt this by targeting, with heavy bombing, not a person but his neighborhood? Surely not. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost.com. He that has gone so far as to cut the claws of the lion, will not feel himself quite secure until he has also drawn his teeth.Charles Caleb Colton, 1825 A case for targeted killings CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Its waiting for that care that has patients and hospital administrators so rankled. CMH CEO Ryan Beaty, speaking to the Chroniclein May about the hospitals efforts to reduce not just ER wait times, but overall time spent in the hospital, accurately portrayed the problem: Its a very difficult and complicated situation. While true, there are some simple steps both patients and CMH could take to make the countys public hospital a more efficient provider of emergency care and improve patient experience. The most recent readily available survey of ER wait times in the United States comes from the 2010 Press Ganey Pulse report, which found that in 2009 patients waited an average of four hours and seven minutes thats a quarter of most waking days spent aching, anxious and wondering when relief will come. But another Pulse Report, this one from 2011, sounds a hopeful note: Data have long shown that keeping patients informed about delays and setting expectations appropriately can have a strong mitigating effect. A curious wrinkle, then, is CMHs page on TheDocClock.com, a site that allows users to report their own wait times. While the reports are certainly not comprehensive or representative, all of the reported wait times are under the national average yet those reporting the times are almost uniformly furious. And when it comes to managing expectations, CMH is facing stiff competition from nearby private provider Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. Patients wanting to know what the wait time is at Seven Rivers need only log on to its website, where the current wait eight minutes, as of the time of this writing is prominently displayed on its home page. Seven Rivers also offers an application for iPhone users, and those without smartphones can send a text message to a phone number and receive an automated response with the current wait time. Thats when effective communication begins before the patient even arrives. Setting expectations for people who are distressed and in pain means much more than telling them a doctor will be with them as soon as possible. But patients have a part to play, too. While undoubtedly miserable, the flu or a broken toe are, in most instances, not emergencies. As a source of primary care, the emergency room is inefficient and terribly expensive, and patients seeking emergency treatment for such conditions are doing themselves and emergency care providers a great disservice. Its unreasonable to expect laymen to be expert diagnosticians, but the responsibility for ones well-being is ultimately ones own. Patients should have an understanding of what requires emergency care and what does not, and be proactive in matters of their health. If you can afford insurance, purchase it: Regular checkups may not give the same satisfaction as dining out or going to the movies, but they can prevent an underlying condition from flaring into a serious problem that requires immediate attention. Keep a first-aid kit handy youll pay far less for a bottle of ibuprofen or antibiotic ointment at the pharmacy than you will at the hospital, and you wont have to wait hours to get it. To this end, the county can also help: Moving the health department nearer the hospital would create a diversion stream for patients who wrongly assume they need emergency care, and ease the burden on a hospital heavily reliant on fluctuating public funds and encumbered by a larger patient load than its nearest competitor. At the Chronicle, we hear two common refrains about CMH: The quality of care is outstanding, and the wait times are unbearable. Wed like to hear less of the latter.

Soaring coal prices fueled by Chinas economic growth have made mining parts of the Australian landscape far more lucrative than farming it. Its one example of how Chinas emergence as a global trading power may transform countries in ways never contemplated and not yet fully understood. The Associated Press analyzed Chinas trade with other countries as a percentage of their gross domestic product, using an International Monetary Fund database. It found that, on average, trade with China had climbed to 12.4 percent of GDP by 2011. By comparison, the peak reached with the U.S. in the past 30 years was 10 percent in 2001. In Australia, where trade with China hit 7.7 percent of GDP last year, exports of coal and iron ore have helped Australia fend off recession for 21 years and deliver the largest trade surpluses in 140 years of record-keeping. Chinas rapid rise has given Australia its strongest terms of trade since a global wool boom in the 1950s, says economist Peter Robertson at the University of Western Australia. That boom was fairly short-lived, he wrote in an email response to questions. This ones length is unknown. It may turn out much bigger depending on Chinas future growth. The former British colonys relationship with China is deepening in other ways:More than 29,000 Chinese became permanent residents in the year ending June 30, 2011, for the first time eclipsing the United Kingdom, the traditional source of migrants. While India topped China in the next 12-month period, that appears to have been a blip.China accounted for nearly two-thirds of the 10,407 business visas in the most recent year investors and entrepreneurs either given residency or put on a likely path to it. Here we have China not only being out biggest trading partner, it is now the major source of migrants and the major source of international students studying here, says Peter Drysdale, an emeritus professor of economics at Australian National University. The study leads to migration leads to investment, leads to the deepening of the economic relationship and the interaction between the communities, he adds. The scale of it is ... now starting to cover a space that historically the relationship with the United Kingdom covered. In eastern Australia, the China boom is reawakening the sleepy town of Gunnedah. Construction workers and surveyors in high-visibility, fluorescent green shirts are a common sight, a constant reminder that the plans to mine are the cause of the economic resurgence. Not everyone is happy. The prospect of mining has divided the town of 12,000, including members of the extended Clift clan. There are fears that coal dust, endless coal trains and damage to the aquifers could forever alter a pastoral way of life, perhaps even make it untenable. Shenhua spokeswoman Melanie Layton says the land will return to farming after the 30-year life of the mines. Gunnedah, whose previous heyday came during the 1950s wool boom, may be undergoing one of its biggest transformations since it was settled in 1856, says Adam Marshall, who stepped down as mayor in September. We did have a mini coal boom in the early 1980s, but nothing on the scale which were seeing now. Coal mining has a long history in Australia, but never before has it encroached on such prime farmland as the Liverpool Plains, a 4,800-square-mile flatland bordered by mountain ridges and dotted with volcanic hills about 275 miles north of Sydney. Shenhua Watermark, a subsidiary of state-owned China Shenhua Energy, the worlds biggest coal mining company, spent more than $170 million to buy 43 farms covering 36,300 acres. Exmayor Marshall says sellers told him Shenhua paid several times market value. George Clift, 83, who refused to sell, is upset that his cousin Tony did. Youre supposed to hand it down to the next generation, so if youre not going to do that, you shouldnt have been handed the land in the first place, he says. Im very, very sad to see how everythings turning out for the next generation; weve seen the best of Australia and I think its only going to deteriorate from here on. Tony Clift says he believes the state would have forced him to allow mining anyway and probably for less compensation than Shenhua paid for the land. Mining companies can take landowners to court if the two sides cant agree on access to the land. Yeah, it causes some problems in the family. Thats life, Tony Clift says. Id rather take the money and run now than watch my whole block get dug up. Japans heady growth powered a boom in the 1980s, but trade with China, which dethroned Japan as Australias top trading partner in 2009, appears headed even higher. The 7.7 percent of GDP it reached in 2011 eclipsed Japans average of 6.4 percent in the 1980s and even its peak of 7.4 percent in 1985. One quarter of Australian exports are now shipped to China. Mark Beeson, a political scientist at the University of Western Australia, injects a note of caution: Resource booms are often followed by busts. Commodity prices have already come off highs as global mine production catches up with Chinese demand and the global economy has slowed. Some companies have shelved mine expansion plans. But the outlook for investment remains strong, the Australian government says, with about $524 billion in projects still in the pipeline. Therere lots of things that could go wrong, of course, but if it carries on, its going to get more and more important, Beeson says. In some ways, it already is: Turf wars between farmers and miners have triggered a national debate over agricultural land use, a rarity for such a sparsely populated country. Though Great Britain and the United States remain far more pervasive influences, China is becoming part of the political and social fabric in Australia, says Chen Jie, a lecturer on international relations at the University of Western Australia. He notes that lawmakers now visit China at the invitation of business interests there, influencing Australian politics. Its a new phenomenon. Its challenging some of the old assumptions in Australia, he said. Chinas money changes Australian outback Valuable coal fuels boom, sparks clashes over different visions

Snow Associated PressMotorists and pedestrians make their way along snowcovered St. Germain Street Sunday in St. Cloud, Minn. Three dead, three injured in shootingsPORTERVILLE, Calif. A man suspected of fatally shooting three people and wounding three children, including his two daughters, died Sunday from his injuries in a police shootout, authorities said. Hector Celaya, 31, died several hours after he was wounded during gunfire with Tulare County sheriffs deputies as he tried to flee in a vehicle. His death was confirmed by sheriffs Sgt. Chris Douglass, who did not release details. Authorities apprehended him early Sunday, about six hours after deputies were called to a trailer on the Tule Indian Reservation on Saturday night. Inside, they found the bodies of a man and a woman; the body of another man was nearby. Deputies also discovered a wounded young boy, whose condition and age were not known. Officials said Celaya shot his two daughters, ages 5 and 8, who were found with him in the vehicle when he was apprehended. One girl suffered life-threatening injuries, while the other girl was less seriously hurt. A motive for the attacks was not immediately known. The boy who was wounded is believed to be about 7, said Shelby Charley Jr., an engineer and supervisor with the Tule River Reservation Fire Department. This is a once in a lifetime kind of deal, Charley said of the call. Its one of those calls you could go your whole career and not walk into. This is one of those calls that will stick with you for the rest of your life. The winding roads out of the reservation delayed medical help for the boy, Charley said. Thick fog in the area prevented a medical helicopter from responding, Charley said. At the scene of the shooting, police tape stretched out across the driveway to three modular homes built on a hillside that appeared to be a family compound. The homes are in a remote area scattered with oak trees and rock outcroppings.Airport officer killed in OhioCLEVELAND Authorities in Cleveland said a man fatally shot his airport-security-officer wife, fired at a second person, and then killed himself at an off-site airport employee parking lot. Police spokesman Sgt. Sammy Morris said the shooting late Sunday morning on the employee parking lot of the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport was an apparent homicide and suicide. The police spokesman said the man fired at another Transportation Security Administration employee who was commuting to work with the mans estranged wife but missed. The shooting occurred at the Riveredge airport employee parking lot north of the airport in an industrial area along Interstate 480. No names were immediately released. Police were not sure of a motive for the shooting.

Chavez faces new cancer battleCARACAS, Venezuela Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was heading back to Cuba on Sunday for a third cancer surgery after naming his vice president as his choice to lead the country if the illness cuts short his presidency. Chavezs announcement on Saturday night unleashed new uncertainty about the countrys future, and his supporters poured into city plazas across the nation to pray for his recovery from what appears to be an aggressive type of cancer. Some wiped tears, while others held photos of him and chanted in unison: Ooh-Ah! Chavez isnt going away! Chavez acknowledged the seriousness of his health situation in a televised address, saying for the first time that if he suffers complications Vice President Nicolas Maduro should be elected as Venezuelas leader to continue his socialist movement. The 58-year-old president is still scheduled to be sworn in for a new six-year term Jan. 10. He has been in office for nearly 14 years, since 1999.Hundreds missing in Philippines stormNEW BATAAN, Philippines The number of people missing after a typhoon devastated the Philippines jumped to nearly 900 after families and fishing companies reported losing contact with more than 300 fishermen at sea, officials said. The fishermen from southern General Santos city and nearby Sarangani province left a few days before Typhoon Bopha hit the main southern island of Mindanao on Tuesday, Civil Defense chief Benito Ramos said. The death toll has already surpassed 600, mostly from flash floods that wiped away precarious communities in the southern region unaccustomed to typhoons. Ramos said the fishermen were headed to the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea and to the Pacific Ocean. Coast guard, navy and fishing vessels are searching for them, and some may have sought shelter on the many small islands in the area.Greek PM: bond buyback going wellATHENS, Greece Greeces prime minister said the bond buyback scheme aimed at lessening the crisishit countrys debt load is going very well and that he will have definite results Monday or Tuesday, according to state TV NET.

The government had initially said an announcement would be made over the weekend. The government has said it will spend about $13 billion in European funds on the buyback. World BRIEFS From wire reports Protests continue in Egypt Associated PressCAIRO Egypts opposition said Sunday it will keep up protests against a referendum on a disputed draft constitution but stopped short of advocating either a boycott or a no vote less than a week before the ballot. The opposition was still pushing for Islamist President Mohammed Morsi to cancel the Dec. 15 referendum, saying they reject the process entirely and refuse to call it legitimate. The referendum over a disputed draft constitution has deeply polarized Egypt and sparked some of the bloodiest clashes between Morsi supporters and opponents since he came to power in June. In a sign of how jittery the government is about holding the referendum, Morsi has ordered the military to maintain security and protect state institutions until the results of the referendum are announced. The new presidential decree, published in the official gazette, would be effective starting Monday. The military is asked to coordinate with the police on maintaining security and would also be entitled to arrest civilians. Morsi insists on holding the referendum on schedule. Instead, as a concession to his opponents, he rescinded decrees he issued last month granting him almost unrestricted powers, giving himself and the panel that drafted the constitution immunity from judicial oversight. The decrees sparked the protests. Opponents said they were issued initially to protect the disputed constitution from numerous court challenges. Rushing the approval of the constitution in a latenight session in the panel further inflamed those who claim Morsi and his Islamist allies, including the Muslim Brotherhood, are monopolizing power and trying to force their agenda into practice. The opposition sent hundreds of thousands of protesters into the streets, in unprecedented mass rallies for the largely secular groups since they led the popular uprising last year that toppled President Hosni Mubarak. This prompted protests by Morsi supporters and sparked bouts of street battles that left at least six people dead and hundreds wounded. Several offices of the Muslim Brotherhood also have been ransacked or torched in the unrest. Opposition calls on president to cancel referendum on constitution Courting hope, fear Associated PressWASHINGTON Gay marriage supporters see 41 reasons to fret over the Supreme Courts decision to take up the case of Californias ban on same-sex unions. While nine states allow same-sex partners to marry, or will soon, 41 states do not. Of those, 30 have written gay marriage bans into their state constitutions. That fact is worrisome to those who firmly believe there is a constitutional right to marry, regardless of sexual orientation, but who also know that the Supreme Court does not often get too far ahead of the country on hot-button social issues. Mindful of history, I cant help but be concerned, said Mary Bonauto, director of the Civil Rights Project at Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders and a leader in the state-bystate push for marriage equality. Bonauto was speaking before the court decided on Friday to take up cases on Californias constitutional ban on gay marriage and a federal law that denies to gay Americans who are legally married the favorable tax treatment and a range of health and pension benefits otherwise available to married couples. In 2008, California voters approved the ban, Proposition 8, after the state Supreme Court ruled that gay Californians could marry. Since then, a federal appeals court struck down the constitutional provision, but did not authorize the resumption of same-sex marriages pending appeal. Bonauto identified three earlier seminal rulings that once and for all outlawed state-backed discrimination, and observed that in each case the number of states that still had the discrimination on the books was far smaller. Thirteen states still had laws against sodomy when the court said in 2003 that states have no right to intrude on the private, personal conduct of people, regardless of sexual orientation. Interracial marriage still was illegal in 16 states in 1967 before the high court outlawed race-based state marriage bans. In 1954, when the court issued its landmark decision in Brown v. Board of Education, 17 states had formally segregated school systems. The fear among gay marriage proponents is that the court will refuse to declare that states can no longer define marriage as the union of a man and a woman, because to do so might provoke a backlash in public opinion and undermine acceptance of its authority.

Gov. Chris Gregoire signed a voter-approved law legalizing gay marriage Dec. 5 and weddings for gay and lesbian couples began in Washington on Sunday, following the three-day waiting period after marriage licenses were issued earlier in the week. Associated PressLANSING, Mich. With defeat in the Michigan Legislature virtually certain, Democrats and organized labor intend to make enactment of right-to-work laws as uncomfortable as possible for Gov. Rick Snyder and his Republican allies while laying the groundwork to seek payback at the polls. Shell-shocked opponents of the laws spent the weekend mapping strategy for protests and acts of civil disobedience, while acknowledging the cold reality that Republican majorities in both the House and Senate cannot be stopped or even delayed for long by parliamentary maneuvers. Leaders vowed to resist to the end, and then set their sights on winning control of the Legislature and defeating Snyder when he seeks reelection in 2014. Theyve awakened a sleeping giant, United Auto Workers President Bob King told The Associated Press on Saturday at a Detroit-area union hall, where about 200 activists were attending a planning session. Right-to-work laws prohibit requiring employees to join a union or pay fees similar to union dues as a condition of employment. Supporters say its about freedom of association for workers and a better business climate. Critics contend the real intent is to bleed unions of money and bargaining power. Hundreds of chanting, whistle-blowing demonstrators thronged the state Capitol last week as bills were introduced and approved hours later. Even more protesters are expected Tuesday, when the two chambers may reconcile wording differences and send final versions to Snyder, who now pledges to sign them after saying repeatedly since his 2010 election the issue wasnt on my agenda. Republicans are betting any political damage will be short-lived. During a news conference with GOP leaders last week announcing their intent to press ahead with right-to-work measures, Snyder urged labor to accept the inevitable and focus on showing workers why union representation is in their best interest.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Saturday night because there was no completed contract. Greinke is the top freeagent pitcher on the market, and has attracted interest from the Dodgers, Texas and the Los Angeles Angels. The 29-year-old righty started last season with Milwaukee and was later traded to the Angels, going a combined 15-5 with a 3.48 ERA.Phillies confirm trade for YoungPHILADELPHIA The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired seven-time AllStar infielder Michael Young from the Texas Rangers for two relief pitchers. The deal was announced Sunday, a day after Young agreed to waive his no-trade clause. The Phillies are sending right-hander Josh Lindblom and minor league righty Lisalverto Bonilla to the Rangers to get Young, who fills a void at third base. The Rangers also will pay a significant portion of Youngs salary for 2013. Young is due to earn $16 million. Reports say the Phillies will pay him about $6 million. Young batted .277 with eight homers and 67 RBIs in 2012, a down year for him. In the nine previous seasons, Young hit at least .300 seven times and averaged 17 homers and 90 RBIs. A former AL Gold Glove winner at shortstop, Young hasnt play third base regularly since 2010.Dodgers sign S. Koreas RyuLOS ANGELES A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Los Angeles Dodgers have signed South Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin to a $36 million, six-year deal. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement had been made. The team and Ryu had until 2 p.m. PST on Sunday to reach an agreement or else the left-hander would have returned home and the Dodgers would have been refunded the $25.7 million fee they paid for exclusive rights to negotiate with him. From staff reports Warriors St. Martin plays in FACA game C.J. RISAK CorrespondentThere are single words or phrases that can define a player and his or her abilities. But what defines Daniette St. Martin and her skills on a volleyball court is a phrase that includes just about everything: All-around. St. Martin, the senior outside hitter at Seven Rivers Christian, was selected as the Florida Athletic Coaches Associations 2A-8 player of the year, and was also chosen to play in the FACA Volleyball All-Star Game at St. Leo University on Dec. 2. St. Martin, whose talent was unquestioned, improved as the season progressed, in all aspects. She provided a team that seemed to be centered around the Zachar sisters, both more than 6-foot-3, with an outside hitting threat. When St. Martins kills hit their target consistently, the team started winning, beating Crystal River the 5A-7 champion in two of their three meetings and taking bigger-school teams like Lecanto to four sets and Belleview to five. But again, trying to define St. Martin with one aspect of the game is an incomplete image. She finished with 129 kills, second best for the Warriors behind Alexis Zachar, but she also led the team with 209 digs. She was our best defender, said her Seven Rivers coach, Wanda Grey. At the beginning of the season, she was working on very specific things, and she was getting much better. She had the most digs on the team. She hit from the back row as well. She was very powerful, a great hitter and defender. And still, that wasnt all St. Martin did for Seven Rivers. She had an amazing jump serve that was SRCS outside hitter named District 2A-8 player of the year See FACA/ Page B4 Bucs drop late 11-point lead, fall on games last play Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wild-card playoff hopes took a big hit on the games final play. Nick Foles threw a pair of touchdown passes in the final four minutes, including a 1-yarder to Jeremy Maclin with no time remaining to give the Philadelphia Eagles a 23-21 victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday. Right now were playing for a lot, Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said. We just didnt do it well enough. So, thats why we lost. At the end of the day, we just didnt play well enough, we didnt coach well enough to win. We need to play better to win and it didnt happen. Thats what it boils down to. The Bucs (6-7), who honored the franchises Super Bowl championship team at halftime, lost for the third straight week since their four-game winning streak helped them climb into playoff contention. I dont think we were tense, Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman said. Whatever it was, we were just a hair off. With time running out on the Eagles, Foles had all the answers for ending the teams longest losing streak in 42 years, an eightgame skid that may have placed coach Andy Reids job in jeopardy. The rookie completed 32 of 51 passes for 381 yards in his fourth start in place of the injured Michael Vick. He threw an 11yard TD pass to Clay Harbor with 3:55 remaining, then led the Eagles on a 64-yard game-winning drive after the Philadelphia defense forced a punt by Tampa Bay. Its not easy to keep your poise when youre getting hit all day, Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said of Foles. He did. He could have got nervous and he didnt. Sat in the pocket and made plays. Foles set up the winning touchdown with a 22-yard completion to Jason Avant on fourthand-5 to the Bucs 1. The Eagles scrambled up to the line and Foles spiked the ball, stopping the clock with 2 seconds left and giving Foles a chance for one more play. The 6-foot-6, third-round draft pick rolled to his right and found Maclin open in the end zone, and the receiver made the catch going to his knees. Officials reviewed the play and upheld the call. Rookie Doug Martin rushed for 128 yards and Freeman shrugged off a slow start to throw for two second-half touchdowns to help Tampa Bay overcome a 10-0 halftime deficit to take a 21-10 lead on Martins 4-yard TD run midway through the fourth quarter. We started off slow, Freeman said. We needed to get something going early on, and we werent able to do that. Thats when Foles, who also scored on a 10-yard run in the first half, took over. The Eagles drove 72 yards in eight plays to cut into their deficit on Harbors TD to make it 21-16.

In the 78-year history of the Heisman, only one player has one more than one: Ohio States Archie Griffin in 1974 and But even if another Heisman is not in Manziels future, theres still plenty left for Johnny Football and Texas A&M to achieve before hes done in College Station, Texas.

Beltway belting Redskins cap rally with win over Ravens in overtime Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. With Robert Griffin III sidelined with a sprained right knee, the Washington Redskins rallied behind backup Kirk Cousins to tie the game in the final minute of regulation, then Kai Forbath kicked a 34-yard field goal in overtime Sunday for a 31-28 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Griffin was hurt at the end of a 13yard scramble while attempting to lead the game-tying drive with the Redskins trailing 28-20. He left for one play, returned for four, then was no longer able to continue. Cousins stepped in and hit Pierre Garcon for an 11-yard touchdown pass, then ran in the 2-point conversion with 29 seconds to play. The Redskins have won four straight to improve to 7-6. The Ravens lost back-to-back games for the first time since 2009 and fell to 9-4.Cowboys 20, Bengals 19CINCINNATI The grieving Cowboys rallied for a significant win on Dan Baileys 40-yard field goal as time ran out. Dallas overcame a nine-point deficit in the closing minutes behind Tony Romo, who held his hand over his heart during a moment of silence to honor teammate Jerry Brown before the kickoff. Brown died in an auto accident early Saturday. Defensive lineman Josh Brent, who was driving, remained in jail in Irving, Texas, charged with intoxication manslaughter. The Cowboys (7-6) learned about Browns death on their flight to Cincinnati on Saturday. Coach Jason Garrett told his team that the best way to honor him was to play well in a game with playoff implications for both teams. A late comeback was just enough to beat the Bengals (7-6). Romo threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant, then led the drive to Baileys kick.Panthers 30, Falcons 20CHARLOTTE, N.C. Cam Newton threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns and scored on a 72-yard run. Newton piled up a career-high 116 yards on the ground as the Panthers racked up 475 total yards to avenge an early-season loss with a dominating performance against the NFC South champion Falcons. Carolina (4-9) came in with little to play for except to gain a measure of revenge on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, whom they felt disrespected them after Atlantas 30-28 come-from-behind win earlier this season at the Georgia Dome. Ryan threw for 342 yards and two scores and had a costly fourth-quarter interception. The Panthers opened a 23-0 lead en route to snapping a five-game losing streak against the Falcons.Vikings 21, Bears 14MINNEAPOLIS Adrian Peterson rushed for 154 yards and two touchdowns and Harrison Smith returned an interception for a score. Peterson topped 100 yards before the first quarter was over, helping the Vikings (7-6) overcome another lackluster day from quarterback Christian Ponder to get a win that will keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Jay Cutler threw for 260 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions and couldnt finish the game for the Bears (85), who have lost four of their last five. He took a wicked hit to the head from Everson Griffen in the fourth quarter, remained in the game for the rest of that drive, but was replaced by Jason Campbell with 3 minutes to play.Browns 30, Chiefs 7CLEVELAND Rookie Travis Benjamins electrifying 93-yard punt return touchdown gave Cleveland momentum and the Browns won their third straight game. Benjamins game-changing runback helped the Browns (5-8) continue their resurgence under second-year coach Pat Shurmur, whose future in Cleveland remains uncertain. The Browns have one more win than last season, and their longest winning streak since 2009. Trent Richardson had a pair of 1-yard TD runs for Cleveland. Jamaal Charles ran for 165 yards, breaking off an 80-yard TD run on the games first play for Kansas City. It was the first road game for the Chiefs (2-11) following linebacker Jovan Belchers suicide. The 25-year-old killed his girlfriend at their home before driving to the teams practice facility on Dec. 1 and shooting himself. Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Rookie David Wilson returned a kickoff 97 yards for one touchdown, ran for two more scores and piled up 327 all-purpose yards and Eli Manning threw four touchdown passes to lead the New York Giants to a 52-27 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The win allowed the Giants (8-5) to maintain their one-game lead in the NFC East over Washington and Dallas. The loss all but ended the playoff hopes of Drew Brees and the Saints (5-8). The win also ended the Giants three-game losing streak against the Saints, who turned the ball over four times in losing their third straight. Manning had TD passes of 6 yards to Martellus Bennett, 5 yards to Domenik Hixon, 25 yards to Hakeem Nicks and 10 yards to Victor Cruz. Wilson scored on runs of 6 and 52 yards and finished with 100 yards on 13 carries on the biggest day of his career.Chargers 34, Steelers 24PITTSBURGH Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, two to Danario Alexander, and San Diego won for the first time in 15 regular-season visits to Pittsburgh. The Chargers (5-8), who snapped a four-game losing streak, dominated from the outset. They never let Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger get comfortable in his first game in nearly a month. Roethlisberger completed 22 of 42 passes for 285 yards and three second-half touchdowns. But he also threw an interception and had a botched screen pass turn into an easy San Diego score as Pittsburgh (7-6) hardly played like a team readying for a postseason run.Colts 27, Titans 23INDIANAPOLIS Andrew Luck led Indianapolis back from a 13-point second-half deficit and Adam Vinatieri made two fourth-quarter field goals. Luck has now engineered six fourth-quarter comebacks for Indy (9-4). It wasnt all Luck. Delone Carter cut the deficit to 20-14 with a 1-yard TD run on Indys opening possession of the second half. And after Pat McAfees 52-yard punt went out of bounds at the Titans 1-yard line, Cassius Vaughn jumped in front of Nate Washington, picked off Jake Lockers pass and scored on a 3-yard interception return to make it 21-20. Rob Bironas gave the Titans (4-9) a 23-21 lead with a 25yard field goal, but VInatieri hit from 53 yards to retake the lead and from 40 to seal it.Jets 17, Jaguars 10JACKSONVILLE Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell ran for short touchdowns and the New York Jets kept their postseason hopes alive. The Jets (6-7) were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didnt need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time. Instead, they just pounded the Jaguars (2-11) up the middle. Mark Sanchez, benched last week in a 7-6 win against Arizona, was hardly a factor. Neither was backup Tim Tebow, who spent his homecoming on the sideline. Greene scored on a 1-yard plunge in the third quarter, and Powell added a 4-yarder early in the fourth. Greene finished with 77 yards rushing. Powell added 78 yards on the ground.Rams 15, Bills 12ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Sam Bradford threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson with 48 seconds left. Bradford was 5 of 8 for 68 yards to cap a 14-play, 84yard drive. St. Louis (6-6-1) continued its late-season resurgence by winning its third straight for the first time since closing the 2006 season with three victories. The Bills (5-8) blew a lead in the final minute of the fourth quarter for the second time this season. They squandered a six-point lead in a 35-34 loss to Tennessee on Oct. 21.Seahawks 58, Cardinals 0SEATTLE Marshawn Lynch had three touchdown runs and Seattle set a franchise record for points in a 580 win over the Cardinals. The Seahawks forced eight turnovers. Richard Sherman and Bobby Wagner each had two interceptions. Seattle (8-5) kept firm grasp on the final NFC wild-card spot and kept alive slim chances of catching San Francisco in the NFC West race. The Seahawks also picked up their first division victory and assured coach Pete Carroll of his first eight-win season in three years with them. The 58-0 victory was the biggest shutout in Seattles history. Leon Washingtons 3yard TD run with 2:32 left set a franchise record for points. Arizona (4-9) was shut out for the first time since 2003 against Seattle. The effortless performance will only raise questions about Ken Whisenhunts future as head coach. Arizona lost its ninth straight overall.49ers 27, Dolphins 13SAN FRANCISCO Frank Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown, reached 1,000 yards rushing for the sixth time in his career, and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Miami Dolphins 27-13. Gore finished with 63 yards, Anthony Dixon also had a 1yard scoring run and Colin Kaepernick ran for a late 50yard touchdown and threw for 185 yards in his fourth straight start since being promoted over Alex Smith. NFL sacks leader Aldon Smith added two to his total for 19 1/2, passing Fred Deans franchise-best singleseason mark of 17 1/2 set in 1983. Smith also moved within three sacks of Michael Strahans seasonal NFL record set in 2001 with the New York Giants. Michael Crabtree had nine catches for 93 yards and rookie LaMichael James ran for 30 yards in a solid NFL debut for the 49ers (9-3-1). Associated PressWashington Redskins punter Sav Rocca, right, hugs Kai Forbath after Forbaths winning 34-yard field goal in overtime Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens in Landover, Md. N.Y.

NFLSTATISTICS No. 4 Duke women down St. Johns Associated PressNEW YORK Elizabeth Williams had 16 points and five blocks to help No. 4 Duke beat St. Johns 60-42 in the seventh annual Maggie Dixon Classic. Haley Peters added 11 points for the Blue Devils (80), who are off for the next week for exams. The two teams met last season in the NCAA tournament regional semifinals and the Blue Devils routed the Red Storm 74-47. Nadirah McKenith had 19 points to lead St. Johns (4-3). Trailing 11-10 early on, Duke scored 15 of the next 17 points to take control. Williams three-point play made it 17-11 and Alexis Jones layup capped the burst. St. Johns cut its deficit to nine before Duke closed the half with an 8-2 run to go up 36-21.No. 7 Kentucky 68, Middle Tenn. St. 56LEXINGTON, Ky. DeNesha Stallworth had 16 points, and No. 7 Kentucky used a first-half surge to defeat Middle Tennessee State 68-46. The Wildcats (8-1) struggled in the first half and were being out-rebounded 19-6 at one point late in the first half. But Middle Tennessee States persistence on the boards meant little because of how poorly it was shooting; the Blue Raiders were 6 of 24 from the floor in the first half and 0 for 8 from 3-point range. The Blue Raiders (6-4) endured an 11-minute stretch in the first half over which it had no field goals and scored only two points. Over that time, Kentucky stretched its lead from two points to 16.No. 10 Penn St. 97, Georgetown 74STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Maggie Lucas scored a careerhigh 39 points and ignited No. 10 Penn States potent transition game in a 97-74 rout of sloppy Georgetown. Lucas, the Lady Lions prolific shooting guard, was 11 of 21 from the field including 7 of 13 from 3-point territory. She had 26 alone in a first half in which Penn State (7-2) led by as much as 34. Sugar Rodgers scored 22 for Georgetown (7-3), which had its three-game winning streak snapped. The Hoyas shot only 31 percent on the afternoon. It took just three minutes for Penn State to take control after Lucas hit an open 3 from the left corner to start a 10-0 run. The Lady Lions then converted steals on three straight Georgetown possessions, culminating in Alex Bentleys easy layup for an 18-9 lead with 14:47 left in the first half.No. 15 Purdue 68, Tenn.-Martin 60MARTIN, Tenn. Sam Ostarello scored 14 of her 16 points in the second half and Taylor Manuel also scored 16 as No. 15 Purdue overcame a challenge from Tennessee-Martin to win 68-60 after trailing at halftime. The Boilermakers (9-1) opened the second half with a 15-0 run, including nine points by Ostarello, to lead 40-29. Purdue shot 53.8 percent (14 of 26) in the second half to 26.7 percent (8 of 30) for the Skyhawks (4-7) and out-rebounded them 24-11. Consecutive 3-pointers by Katie Schubert and Heather Butler gave the Skyhawks a 1716 lead with 7:48 left in the first half. The lead reached seven points, 27-20, after 3-pointers by Jasmine Newsome and Schubert.No. 17 Kansas 97, Newman 64LAWRENCE, Kan. Carolyn Davis scored 24 points and No. 17 Kansas never trailed in a 97-64 victory over Newman. Ten Jayhawks scored in the contest as Kansas (8-1) built a 51-31 lead at halftime. Davis was 11 of 16 from the field Kansas shot 55 percent and matched the team high with nine rebounds. Chelsea Gardner had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Jayhawks. Angel Goodrich added 11 points and Monica Engelman scored 10.No. 20 Ohio St. 81, Lafayette 41COLUMBUS, Ohio Tayler Hill scored 19 points and No. 20 Ohio State never trailed in defeating Lafayette 81-41 for its 28th consecutive win at home. Hill, who has scored in double figures in 42 straight games, hit a 3-pointer 20 seconds into the contest and the Buckeyes (6-2) never looked back. They led 38-16 at halftime and by as many as 47 points, 78-31, with 4:11 left in the game. Rookie steps up Nicholsons 19 pushes Magic past Suns Associated PressPHOENIX Rookie Andrew Nicholson scored nine of his career-high 19 points in the fourth quarter and the Orlando Magic pulled away to hand the Phoenix Suns their seventh loss in a row, 98-90 on Sunday night. Nicholson made 9 of 11 shots and grabbed nine rebounds, also the best of his young career. J.J. Redick scored 17 of his 20 points in the first half for the Magic in the final stop of their five-game road trip. Shannon Brown scored 17 and Jared Dudley 15 for the Suns, who were without starting point guard Goran Dragic due to illness. Phoenixs losing streak is its longest since 2004.Knicks 112, Nuggets 106NEW YORK Carmelo Anthony returned from a twogame absence with 34 points against his former team, and the New York Knicks beat the Denver Nuggets 112-106 to remain the NBAs lone unbeaten team at home. Back in the starting lineup after missing two games with a cut on the middle finger of his left hand that required stitches, Anthony twice made baskets in the final 2:08 after Denver had pulled within four points. Jason Kidd scored 17 points for the Knicks, who bounced back from their worst offensive performance of the season a night earlier in Chicago and improved to 8-0 at Madison Square Garden. Tyson Chandler and J.R. Smith each had 15 points. Ty Lawson had 23 points and Danilo Gallinari had 21 points and nine rebounds against the team that drafted him and later dealt him in the package for Anthony in February 2011.Thunder 104, Pacers 93OKLAHOMA CITY Kevin Durant scored 27 points, Kevin Martin added 24 and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Indiana Pacers 104-93 for their eighth straight win. A meeting of the NBAs highest-scoring offense and the leagues stingiest defense went the way of the Thunder, who eclipsed 100 points for the 12th straight game. Of course, Oklahoma City boasts the NBAs second-best defense to go with all that offensive firepower. Russell Westbrook added 21 points and came up with a big block against 7-foot-2 center Roy Hibbert 11 inches taller than him during a late 8-0 burst by the Thunder that put it away after the Pacers had pulled within three. David West led the way with 21 points for Indiana, which had all five of its starters score in double figures.Bucks 97, Nets 88NEW YORK Brandon Jennings scored 26 points, Monta Ellis had 24 points and the Milwaukee Bucks withstood Brooklyns fourth-quarter rally in a 97-88 victory over the Nets. The Bucks led by 29 points with 6:59 left in the third quarter but Brooklyn got within six after Deron Williams found Kris Humphries open for an uncontested dunk. Ellis layup then made it 8779 before the Nets called a timeout with 2:24 left in regulation. On the ensuing play, Gerald Wallace lost his balance and the ball and Milwaukees Larry Sanders made a reverse layup to extend the Bucks lead to 10 points. MarShon Brooks, who scored 14 points, then hit a 3-pointer to bring the Nets within seven but Marquis Daniels hit a 3-pointer to put the game out of reach. Williams had 18 points and eight assists and Wallace added 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Nets.Clippers 102, Raptors 83LOS ANGELES Jamal Crawford led a fourth-quarter rally by the reserves with 16 points and the Los Angeles Clippers defeated Toronto 102-83 on Sunday to win their sixth in a row while handing the Raptors their 10th consecutive road loss. The backups gave the Clippers their first double-digit lead of the game after Toronto kept it close through the first three periods before dropping its fourth straight and 10th in its last 11. The Raptors have just four wins this season.

And she actually set for us for one station. Her statistics bear her serving ability out. St. Martin had a 92.9 percent service rate, with 148 points including 33 aces. This year, I thought I improved all-around, St. Martin said in reflecting on her season. For my AAU club, I had to focus on defense, but I also wanted to work on all my skills. Her chance to play in the FACA All-Star Game was insightful for St. Martin. I actually thought I was in college, she said, referring to all the talent surrounding her. Im thinking about playing in college. Just where shell play next has not yet been determined. But St. Martins allaround ability on the court should make her a much relished addition to any college team. within three points, meaning Philadelphia needed a TD when the offense got the ball back with less than three minutes to go. Foles kept the final drive alive with a 3-yard run on fourth-and-1 from the Tampa Bay 31. It looked as though the Bucs might hang on before the rookie moved around to buy some time and threw 22 yards to Avant cutting across the middle to keep the Eagles hopes live. Avant had seven receptions for 133 yards. This a special game ... its a big win for us, Foles said. We havent won in like two months. The emotions are going crazy right now. Martin put together the fourth 100-yard game of his career on 28 carries. Freeman threw TD passes of 1 yard to Mike Williams and 13 yards to Vincent Jackson, who finished with six receptions for 131 yards. The Eagles (4-10) won for the first time since beating the New York Giants 19-17 on Sept. 30. They led 10-0 at the half, but helped the Bucs get back in the game with their only turnover early in the third quarter. Punt returner Damaris Johnson fumbled a fair catch, and Tampa Bays Dekoda Watson recovered at the Eagles 5 to set up Freemans first touchdown pass. Most of the members of Tampa Bays 2002 championship team, including Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, John Lynch, Simeon Rice and Keyshawn Johnson, returned to town for a dinner Saturday night and were recognized during a halftime ceremony capped by the introduction of coach Jon Gruden, who trotted out of the tunnel carrying the Super Bowl trophy. The only player remaining from that roster whos still playing in the NFL is 16th-year pro, Ronde Barber, made his 212th consecutive start Sunday. It was his interception and 92-yard run that clinched Tampa Bays 27-10 victory over the Eagles in the NFC championship game. It was nice to see all those guys, but it had nothing to do with the product on the field (today), Barber said. So it doesnt hurt more or less. Its 2012, and that was 10 years ago. They celebrated, rightfully, but is has nothing to do with this 2012 team. Notes: Barber had nine tackles. ... Martin, with 1,234 yards, moved past Carnell Williams (1,178) for the most yards rushing in a season by a Tampa Bay rookie. ... Tampa Bay DT Roy Miller was inactive after not practicing most of the week because of a head injury. The fourth-year pro was replaced in the starting lineup by Gary Gibson. ... Tampa Bay limited the Eagles to 29 yards rushing. Foles had 27 of them. ... The Buccaneers had a season-high six sacks. not sputter in the big bad SEC. Texas A&M averaged 552 yards per game and 44 points. Manziel smashed Cam Newtons total offense record with 4,600 yards passing and rushing. You look what our offense did this year. People didnt really think that we were going to have mush success in the SEC. They said these smashmouth, hard-nose defenses and this gimmick offense ... wont work. For us to come into Alabama and some of the other games and really stress tempo, tempo, tempo. We want to move fast. We want to make people uncomfortable. That was our main goal this year. Our offense with coach Sumlin and what coach Kingsbury did, I love it. I love everything about it. Its definitely something that can work if you have the right people in place for it. Kingsbury said he and Sumlin didnt quite realize what they had in Manziel early on. All spring coach Sumlin would blow the whistle because the defense was close, and (Manziel would) come over ... spike the ball, God! They wouldnt have got me. Im like, OK, Johnny, sure they wouldnt have got you. Come to find out they wouldnt have got him. Potentially, Texas A&M will have many of its best pieces in place next season. Receiver Mike Evans is a freshman, too, and has future first-round draft pick written all over him. Texas A&M has an offensive line that rivals Alabamas with two stud tackles in Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews. Both of those big boys are juniors. The first-round of the NFL draft could await Joeckel is being projected as a top-10 pick. Getting them back to College Station for another year will be tough. But if Aggies fans are allowed to dream, theres no reason why A&Ms offense cant be even better next season. Even if Manziels numbers arent. Theres only so much defenses can do to hem in Manziel, who is a master of making something out of nothing. But football is a game of adjustments. Defenses will search for ways to rein in Johnny Football. Sumlins response might be to get his running backs more involved. The Aggies figure to have a stable of good ones next season. Manziel could be as good or better next season, but not be able to put up those same video-game numbers. Its a common tale in Heisman history. BYUs Ty Detmer won the award as a junior in 1990, but finished a distance third behind Desmond Howard in 1991. The hard parts winning it again because the expectation level goes up, Detmer said earlier this week. I felt like my senior year I was a much better player than my junior year. Smarter, less turnovers. Didnt have as good a stats, but I felt like I was a better player my senior year. But the expectations were different. Expectations will by sky high in College Station next season. The move to the SEC, hiring Sumlin and the second Heisman in the history of the program and first since John David Crow in 1957 have Aggies hopes soaring. The award for the program is huge, Sumlin said. Theres a lot of programs out there that dont have one. It took a long time for Texas A&M to get to two. Maybe Manziel can buck the trends again and A&M wont have to wait so long to add a third.

The blockbuster deal announced late Sunday night is the Royals most aggressive move yet under general manager Dayton Moore to shore up a starting rotation that has been abysmal for years. But doing so came at the cost of Myers, the minor leagues top player last season, and a couple more top prospects. The Rays also are getting right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who would have competed for a spot in the Royals rotation this season, along with left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard.

Mexican boxer stops Manny in sixth round Associated PressLAS VEGAS The idea of Manny Pacquiao being knocked out cold was shocking enough. The sight of him face down on the canvas, unresponsive even as bedlam broke out all around him, was positively frightening. Mitt Romney saw it up close from his ringside seat just a few feet away. So did Pacquiaos wife, who broke down in tears and tried to get in the ring to aid her downed husband. Juan Manuel Marquez didnt even bother to look. He was already busy celebrating the knockout of a lifetime. This was boxing at its brutal best, a toe-to-toe slugfest Saturday night that was destined from the opening bell to be decided by fists instead of judges. Both fighters had been down, and both fighters were hurting when Marquez threw a right hand off the ropes with a second left in the sixth round that could be felt all the way in the rafters of the MGM Grand arena. It will go down among the great fights of their era. But it was barely over when the cry arose for the two everso-willing warriors to do it again. When it comes to Pacquiao and Marquez, four fights may not be enough. If you give us a chance, well fight again, Pacquiao said. I was just starting to feel confident and then I got careless. Indeed, the case could be made that Pacquiao was on the verge of a big win himself when Marquez landed the punch that sent him falling face first on the canvas. He had come back from a third round knockdown to drop Marquez in the fifth and was landing big left hands that broke and bloodied the Mexicans nose. After three fights that all went the distance, both fighters had vowed to be more aggressive in their fourth meeting. Pacquiao ended up paying the price for it when he tried to close the sixth round with a flurry, a big mistake against a counterpuncher who drew him into his sights. I knew Manny could knock me out at any time, Marquez said. I threw the perfect punch. Pacquiao, who hadnt been stopped in a fight since 1999 in Thailand when he was a 112-pounder, took several minutes to come around on the canvas before being led to his ring stool. He blew his nose and stared vacantly ahead as the pro-Marquez crowd of 16,348 screamed in excitement. He was taken to the hospital for a precautionary brain scan, then went to his hotel suite, where he ate with wife Jinkee and his entourage and watched a replay of the fight to see what went wrong. Spoiler alert, Pacquiao said as the fight played on the TV. I dont think you are going to like how this ends. His countrymen in the Philippines certainly didnt. The country came to a standstill as it usually does when its hero fights, and for the second fight in a row they were bitterly disappointed. In the southern region where the boxer and congressman lives, some survivors of a powerful typhoon that killed more than 600 people this week watched on a big TV screen in a gym that serves as an emergency shelter in the town of New Bataan. People were really dismayed, town spokesman Marlon Esperanza said. It was like they were hit by another typhoon. What Marquez hit Pacquiao with might have seemed almost as powerful. Pacquiao had dropped Marquez four times in their first three fights, but Marquez had never put him down before he landed a big right hand in the third round for his first knockdown. The power was sure to raise questions about the new bulked-up physique Marquez has at the age of 39, which he said came from hard work under a strength conditioner who once provided steroids to Marion Jones and other track stars. Still, it was a career-defining moment for Marquez, who believes he was robbed by the judges in his first three fights with Pacquiao. The two fought to a draw eight years ago at 125 pounds and Pacquiao was awarded close decisions in the other two fights.SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, DECEMBER10, 2012 B5 000CYNZ From: Age: Child: Drop your letter by the Crystal River Mall or the Citrus County Chronicle between Friday, November 23 and Friday, December 14, 2012 All letters will be published for all to read and enjoy online at www.chronicleonline.com/letterstosanta2012!

Associated Press LOS ANGELESJames Bond is in a box-office photo finish with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny over what looks to be the last slow weekend of the holidays. According to studio estimates Sunday, Sonys Bond tale Skyfall took in $11 million to move back to No. 1 in its fifth weekend. That put it narrowly ahead of Paramounts Rise of the Guardians, the animated adventure of Santa, the Easter Bunny and other mythological heroes that pulled in $10.5 million. The two movies inched ahead of Summit Entertainments The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, which had been tops for threestraight weekends. The Twilight finale earned $9.2 million, slipping into a tight race for No. 3 with Disneys Lincoln, which was close behind with $9.1 million. The top movies were bunched up so closely that rankings could change once final weekend revenues are released Monday. The weekends only new wide release, Gerard Butlers romantic comedy Playing for Keeps, flopped with $6 million, coming in at No. 6. Skyfall raised its domestic total to $261.6 million and added $20.3 million overseas to bring its international income to $656.6 million. At $918 million worldwide, Skyfall has the best cash haul ever for the Bond franchise and surpassed Spider-Man 3 at $890 million to become Sonys topgrossing hit. The Twilight finale also is a franchise record-breaker, surpassing the $710 million worldwide haul of last years Breaking Dawn Part 1. The finales domestic total now stands at $268.7 million. It was another traditionally quiet post-Thanksgiving weekend, with big November releases continuing to dominate in the lull before a pre-Christmas onslaught of movies. The box office is expected to soar next weekend with the arrival of part one of The Hobbit, Peter Jacksons The Lord of the Rings prelude. After that comes a steady rush of action, comedy and drama through years end, including Tom Cruises Jack Reacher, Quentin Tarantino and Jamie Foxxs Django Unchained, Seth Rogens The Guilt Trip and Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowes Les Miserables. The last couple of weeks of the year are some of the strongest every year, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. We are on the cusp of some really huge box office. Theres a lot of money still left in the year despite this slow period right now. Hollywoods domestic revenues have topped $10 billion so far this year, with the industry expected to finish 2012 ahead of the alltime high of $10.6 billion set in 2009. Trashed savagely by critics, FilmDistricts Playing for Keeps stars Butler as a washed-up soccer star trying to reconnect with his ex-wife (Jessica Biel) and young son. The all-star cast includes Catherine Zeta-Jones and Uma Thurman as soccer moms with the hots for Butler. In limited release, Bill Murrays Franklin Roosevelt drama Hyde Park on Hudson opened solidly with $83,280 in four theaters, averaging a healthy $20,820 a cinema. By comparison, Playing for Keeps averaged $2,115 in 2,837 theaters. Released by Focus Features, Hyde Park on Hudson stars Murray as Roosevelt, whose intimate relations with a distant cousin (Laura Linney) become both a source of strength and distraction as the president plays host to the king and queen of England on the eve of World War II. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. PSY to serenade ObamasWASHINGTON An annual holiday concert attended by President Barack Obama and his family includes something nontradi tional this year: a performance by South Korean rapper and Internet sensation PSY. The Gangnam Style rapper, born Park Jaesang, apologized Friday for using what he says was inflammatory and inappropriate language during anti-U.S. protests at concerts in 2002 and 2004. Obama traditionally attends the Christmas in Washington concert of carols and songs to benefit Childrens National Medical Center. The 31st installment is scheduled for Sunday evening at the National Building Museum, and to be hosted for a second year by comedian Conan OBrien.

Associated PressNEW YORK It sure didnt feel like a farewell. The Rolling Stones average age 68-plus, if youre counting were in rollicking form as they rocked the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for 2 1/2 hours Saturday night, their first U.S. show on a mini-tour marking a mind-boggling 50 years as a rock band. And although every time the Stones tour, the inevitable questions arise, whether its The Last Time, to quote one of their songs there was no sign that anything is ending anytime soon. People say, why do you keep doing this? mused 69year-old Mick Jagger, the bands impossibly energetic frontman, before launching into Brown Sugar. Why do you keep touring, coming back? The answer is, youre the reason were doing this. Thank you for buying our records and coming to our shows for the last 50 years. Jagger was in fine form, with strong vocals and his usual swagger strutting, jogging, skipping and pumping his arms like a man half his age. And though he briefly donned a flamboyant feathered black cape for Sympathy for the Devil and later, some red-sequined tails, he was mostly content to prowl the stage in a tight black T-shirt and trousers. The bands guitarists, the brilliant Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood, alternated searing solos and occasionally ventured onto a stage extension that brought them closer to the crowd. The now-gray Richards, wearing a red bandana, exuded the easy familiarity of a favorite uncle: While we wait for Ronnie, he said at one point, Ill wish you happy holidays. Watts, the dapper drummer in a simple black T-shirt, smiled frequently at his band mates. The grizzled quartet was joined on Gimme Shelter by Mary J. Blige, who traded vocals with Jagger and earned a huge cheer at the end. Also visiting: the Texas blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr. The sense of nostalgia was heightened by projections on a huge screen of footage of the early days, when the Stones looked like teenagers. At one point, Jagger reminisced about the first time the band played New York in 1964. A carton of milk cost only a quarter then, he said. And a ticket to the Rolling Stones? I dont want to go there, he quipped. It was a reference to the sky-high prices at the current and Counting shows, where even the cheap seats cost a few hundred dollars and a prime seat cost in the $700 range or higher.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, DECEMBER10, 2012 B7 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Augie Boehm has written a primer on the basics of declarer play and defense, Boehms Card Play Essentials (A.L. Ayers Printing). Aimed at a nearbeginner, each of the nine chapters discusses deals and includes highlighted Key Plays. The book ends with six quiz questions and a brief glossary. It is worth reading; I just wish the diagrams had contained suit symbols instead of letters. In this deal from the book, South is in four spades. West leads the diamond two. East takes dummys queen with his ace and shifts to the club two. How should declarer continue? There is no bidding given for any deal. To reach four spades is very aggressive; stopping in three spades would be normal. Here, if three spades is nonforcing (as North wishes), South should pass with his minimum opening. When in a suit contract, declarer should start by counting the losers in his hand. Here, given that East had the diamond ace, South must lose two hearts and one diamond. He might also concede as many as one spade and two clubs. To get home, both black-suit finesses must be winning and a club loser must be ruffed on the board. At trick two, South puts in his club queen. When it holds, he cashes the club ace, and ruffs the club four. Now that he is on the board, he runs the spade jack (assuming East does not cover, of course). When that wins, declarer continues with the spade 10 and (again assuming East does not cover) overtakes with his queen, cashes the spade ace, and concedes those three tricks.

He refused to go swimming with us at the pool, saying it would be too boring. He wouldnt wear a jacket and tie to dinner at the hotels fivestar restaurant, and when I told him he wouldnt be able to go in without them, he said, Fine, Ill get a sandwich somewhere else, and thats what he did. Whenever we went to the beach or shopping, he wouldnt come along and instead toured the city on his own. When I said I didnt care for his tone of voice, he gave me the silent treatment. For the plane ride home, we got him a seat near the aisle so he could stretch out his legs. I told him, You could at least say thank you. Instead, he gave me a dirty look. When I saw that the woman next to him had a toddler who didnt have his own seat, I made my son give up his, and the flight attendant gave him an empty seat near the bulkhead. I got another dirty look for that. I kept trying to ask whether he was OK, but he had the flight attendant tell me to leave him alone. Were planning to visit relatives this winter, and my son says he doesnt want to go. I dread the idea of putting up with this nasty teenager who cant appreciate any of the things we do for him. I want him to stay with his grandparents, but theyd rather not have him because hes moody and they dont like the way he dresses. Id ask my brother, but I dont want to have to reciprocate. Is it OK to let a 17-year-old stay home alone for 10 days? I have people who can check on him. N.Y. Dear N.Y.: Teenagers enjoy family vacations more than they let on, but not if the trips are geared entirely toward the parents preferences. Unless you are 100 percent certain that your son will be responsible for himself and the house, we dont recommend leaving him without ongoing supervision for 10 days. See if you can get a trusted adult to move in for the duration. But we also suggest that you back off a bit. Your son reacts poorly to being fussed over in public by Mommy and Daddy. It embarrasses him. Dear Annie: It seems like only yesterday that several people came by and offered to cut our grass, but no one ever actually cut it. Now the snow is here, and we are unable to shovel our walkway and make a path to the mailbox. We are getting up in age and cannot do these things on our own. Hiring a professional costs more than we can manage on our Social Security. What a great thing it would be for neighbors to teach their children to come across the road with their big riding mower or snowplow and make a couple of sweeps across our yard. We would so appreciate the assistance. No Name, No Location Dear No Name: Even kids expect to be paid, although a good-hearted neighbor may shovel your snow and mow your lawn as a kindness, especially if they own a riding mower or snow blower. But also please check with your local church, which may provide such a service. Dear Annie: Lonely in Nova Scotia says he has no luck with the ladies. I suggest he figure out what traits he really likes in a woman, find someone who has them and let her know how special she is to him. Then he should make sure hes clean and his clothing is up to date. And he should show genuine interest in what she has to say and not just talk and expect her to laugh at his jokes.
