M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerLECANTO The business of fighting back against Progress Energy Florida over its 2012 tax payment began Monday with the Citrus County Commission and school board agreeing to fund start-up costs for what could be a lengthy legal battle. Before a sparse crowd of fewer than 50 people at the College of Central Florida in Lecanto, both boards agreed to pay up to $175,000 each in the next six months to contest a lawsuit Progress has brought against Property Appraiser Geoff Greene over the assessment of its energy complex north of Crystal River. The funds also will go toward Greene creating a baseline appraisal of real and tangible property at the nuclear and coal plants. Officials said the appraisal, which could cost an additional $320,000, is necessary to give the county a true value of the companys taxable assets. Both boards also formally approved adding the county commission and school board as defendants, along with Greene, the tax collector and Florida Department of Revenue. Greenes attorney in the Duke case, Thomas Cloud of Orlando, said it could be one of the largest tax cases in the states history. We havent seen a challenge of this magnitude ever, Cloud said.

County commission, school board agree to fund lengthy battle against Duke CR moves Riverwalk project alongThe Riverwalk project along Kings Bay will receive further study now that all five property owners affected by the boardwalk support it. Members of the Crystal River City Council, sitting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, approved City Manager Andy Houstons request Monday night to continue studying the project another 60 days. Riverwalk is a boardwalk connecting Crackers restaurant with Charlies Fish House. City business leaders said Riverwalk would be a significant tourist attraction. Chronicle Publisher Gerry Mulligan, who heads the chamber of commerces Crystal River area council, said Riverwalk would showcase the bay. We have one of the most beautiful assets in the whole world, Mulligan said. We have kept that view from people for many, many years. Houston said the estimated cost is $1 million. See TAX / Page A2 Truce called in firehouse war EDC addressing skills gap P AT F AHERTY Staff writerHaving the right workers available to meet the needs of existing and emerging employers has been an ongoing concern of the Citrus County Economic Development Council. The issue of a skills gap in the local workforce mirrors the employment situation at the national, state and regional levels. In 2013, the EDC will have a subcommittee focusing on that issue, according to EDC Executive Director John Siefert. It will consist of EDC board members and include representatives from Withlacoochee Technical Institute, College of Central Florida, the Citrus County School District and Citrus Memorial hospital. We have a skills gap in Citrus County, Seifert said. Its bigger than this region. Florida and the U.S. suffer from having jobs available that they are unable to fill with skilled workers.

The proposed agreement, which has yet to be finalized, was revealed last week at the end of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners meeting, when Commissioner John JJ Kenney asked Cathy Pearson, assistant county administrator and director of Community Services, to give an update. This has been a project that Commissioner Kenney, Ken Frink and myself have been working on for months, Pearson said. Diane Toto with We Care and the Homosassa Civic Club were both vying for that building. After many months of working it out, Diane has graciously come up with the idea to move to the outreach center on Atlas Drive in Homosassa. The conflict began in April, when the civic clubs lease on the fire station at 10950 W. Yulee Drive expired and the county declared it surplus property that could be turned over to a nonprofit group to advance its work in the community. The civic club had an arrangement with the We Care Food Pantry to use the fire station twice a month to distribute food to the needy. The civic club applied to own the fire station at the same time that Toto, food pantry president, made a claim to continue using the property for food distribution. Jim Bitter with the civic club said the club needed the property to convert the old firehouse into a learning center for children and adults. The battle between the two nonprofits has been waged since April. Plan could affect 940,000 owners Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas plan to increase taxes on top earners would have only a small impact on the nations economy, according to congressional budget experts. But dont tell that to small-business owners facing a tax hike. Obamas proposal would hit about 940,000 people who report business income on their individual or household returns, said the Joint Committee on Taxation, the official scorekeeper for Congress. Thats only 3.5 percent of the people who report business income, but those business owners are projected to earn 53 percent of the $1.3 trillion in business income that will be reported on individual returns next year. That, Republicans in Congress argue, makes those business owners an important engine for economic growth and job creation. They recite it as gospel: Paying higher taxes will reduce the amount of profits business owners would otherwise re-invest in their companies, making them less likely to expand and hire more workers. Many economists agree tax increases in general limit economic growth. But there are big disagreements about magnitude how much relatively small changes in the top two income tax rates would affect the economy Obama tax plan no small deal to small businesses From staff reports See BUSINESS / Page A5 See BUILDING / Page A5 Its going to be like one-stop shopping for all our needy clients.

company, Duke Energy, paid $19.3 million for its 2012 taxes. County officials say the actual tax bill, based on Greenes assessment of the property, is about $36 million. The difference plunged both the commission and school board into a financial crisis, with each now missing $7.5 million and $8.1 million, respectively, from their current budgets. Progress lawsuit challenges the methodology Greene used to create his assessment, particularly on pollution-control equipment added in 2009. Greene pegged the value of that equipment at more than $1 billion; the company says it should be considered salvage and taxed at a much lower rate. The company is basing its argument on a state law that creates a special classification for pollution-control equipment that practically exempts it from taxation. Greene said a Citrus County circuit court judge in 1998 ruled that law unconstitutional. Officials said if Progress sticks with its decision to pay $19 million in taxes in 2012 and in the coming years, it would reduce the companys taxes $340 million over 30 years. Greene bases his decision to tax pollution-control equipment on the 1998 case involving former Property Appraiser Ron Schultz. Since then, however, the Supreme Court ruled in a separate case that the property appraiser cannot challenge the constitutionality of a state law. Cloud said that that high court ruling requires the county commission and school board to participate along with Greene in the Progress case. While each boards vote was unanimous to join the lawsuit and pay toward expenses, Commissioner Scott Adams suggested settling with Progress to avoid costly litigation. He said the company has uncertainty with its broken nuclear power plant, offline since 2009, and the future of two of its coal burning plants. We have to be realistic, he said. He noted that Progress representatives met with county and school board officials two weeks ago and offered to pay $30 million in taxes this year. Those officials, including County Administrator Brad Thorpe and County Attorney Richard Wesch, told the Progress representatives that they could not negotiate a tax payment and that Progress should be negotiating assessments with the property appraiser. Adams suggested taking the companys offer and then participating in a lawsuit regarding the assessments. Do we really think a court, after paying lawyers for three years, will get us a more generous offer? Adams said. Adams, as he did during the boards emergency meeting on Nov. 30 to discuss the Duke issue, railed against prior commission spending and for use of reserve funds to help balance the county budget. We got caught with our pants down to our ankles with this Duke thing, he said. The reason you have reserves is for a rainy day like this. The rainy day came and guess what? We werent prepared. Commission Chairman Joe Meek and Commissioner Rebecca Bays noted the county has one of the lowest tax rates and spending per person in the state. Some of the comments here have been insulting to this board, Meek said. He said the issue is the Progress tax situation, not the countys budget process. On the school board side, board members agreed that the Duke tax issue has placed them in a difficult situation. However, according to Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel, the circumstances are different. District officials have appealed to the state for more funding, and Himmel said the state may supplement all but $2.5 million of the loss from the Progress tax payment. The state oversees nearly all the school districts millage, and bases state funding on the local tax base. A drop in the tax base would increase state funding. With the potential of having its net Duke tax loss reduced from $8.1 million to about $2.6 million, school board member Pat Deutschman suggested the district pay less for litigation than the county. Board members agreed to the $175,000 for six months and then to address the equalization issue later. School board member Thomas Kennedy said he understood Deutschmans logic. However, Kennedy said, students utilize many county programs that could be impacted by the Duke tax shortfall. I feel an obligation to them, Kennedy said. Board member Linda Powers agreed. We are in a partnership, she said. Both boards agreed to look at the funding amounts again in six months. Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. Special to the ChronicleMore than 60,000 volunteers across the country will be counting birds from Dec. 14, 2012, to Jan. 5, 2013. Locally, on Jan. 4, 2013, birders from the Citrus County Audubon Society and volunteer citizen scientists will be part of the regional Binocular Brigade, many rising before dawn to participate in the worlds longest-running wildlife census, begun in 1900. The 113th CBC is expected to be larger than ever, expanding its geographical coverage and accumulating information about the winter distributions of various birds. Today, volunteers from all 50 states, every Canadian province, parts of Central and South America, Bermuda, the West Indies, and Pacific Islands count and record every individual bird and bird species seen in a specified area. This is not just about counting birds, said Gary Langham, Audubons chief scientist. Data from the Audubon Christmas bird count are at the heart of hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies and inform decisions by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Department of the Interior, and the EPA. Because birds are early indicators of environmental threats to habitats we share, this is a vital survey of North America and, increasingly, the Western Hemisphere. CBC revealed the dramatic impact climate change is already having on birds, and a disturbing decline in common birds, including the northern bobwhite quail. The many decades of data not only help identify birds in need of conservation action it also reveals success stories. CBC helped document the comeback of the Bald Eagle and significant increases in waterfowl populations, both the result of conservation efforts. Last years count shattered records. A total of 2,248 counts and 63,227 people tallied over 60 million birds. The journal Nature wrote an editorial citing CBC as a model for citizen science. The count began in 1900 when Dr. Frank Chapman, founder of Bird-Lore (which evolved into Audubon magazine) suggested an alternative to the holiday side hunt, in which teams competed to see who could shoot the most small game, including birds. Chapman proposed that people count birds instead. For more information, go to CitrusCountyAudubon. com.

A Pasco County Sheriffs Office statement identified the woman as 76-year-old Vickie Petrakis. Her husband found her body Monday morning. Authorities said there were no signs of foul play. A preliminary investigation showed a friend called the husband, telling him their car was parked in the area. Authorities say that when the husband arrived, he searched the area and found his wife floating in the canal.

Associated PressTAMPA Manuel Pardo was a decorated Florida police officer before he was fired for lying and turned to life as a vigilante, slaying nine people during a three-month crime spree. Almost 27 years later, Pardo, 56, is scheduled to be executed Tuesday night. U.S. Judge Timothy Corrigan denied Pardos request for a stay on Monday. Most of Pardos victims were involved with drugs, officials said, and Pardo contended that he was doing the world a favor by killing them. I am a soldier, I accomplished my mission and I humbly ask you to give me the glory of ending my life and not send me to spend the rest of my days in state prison, the then31-year-old Pardo told jurors at his 1988 trial. Pardos attorneys are trying to block his execution, arguing in federal appeals that he is mentally ill, something his trial attorney believed more than two decades ago. I think that anyone who would get up and ask a jury sentence him to death is insane, lawyer Ronald Guralnick said recently. Regino Musa, the brother of one of Pardos victims, said its difficult to grasp that the execution will finally happen. He and his elderly mother plan to attend. Its about time. Its been so long, you just want to get it over with, said Musa, whose sister, Sara Musa, was killed by Pardo. I still have nightmares and I dont have words to describe it. I cant believe that its happening. Pardo, a former Boy Scout and Navy veteran, began his law enforcement career in the 1970s with the Florida Highway Patrol, graduating at the top of his class at the academy. But he was fired from that agency in 1979 for falsifying traffic tickets. He was soon hired by the police department in Sweetwater, a small city in Miami-Dade County. In 1981, Pardo was one of four Sweetwater officers charged with brutality, but the cases were dismissed. In 1982, The Miami Herald reported Pardo saved a 2-month-old boys life by reviving him with CPR. Another story, written by famed South Florida columnist and novelist Carl Hiassen, noted that Pardo arrested a man for stealing valuable parrots and cockatoos to use as live sacrifices for a Santeria ritual. Former policeman set to die Ex-officer Pardo killed nine people P AT F AHERTY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER There are no points for good form in Last Man Standing. Instead, contestants use whatever means they conjure up within the rules to stay awake and avoid disqualification. And after 50 hours, some of the contestants were starting to stink; others stumbled a little or spoke with a slow slur. By noon Monday, 11 remained 10 men and a woman with sunburned faces and droopy eyes. They were encouraged by a small crowd of family members, friends, former contestants and passersby. It started at 10 a.m. Saturday, on a taped-off patch of asphalt in the rear parking lot of the Crystal River Mall. Forty-seven standers had started, including 14 women. Others had entered and didnt show. There is a $5,000 winnertake-all purse for the last person standing. Contestants get a five-minute bathroom break every eight hours and can be supplied with food by supporters. They can also smoke and have their cell phones charged. Within the rules they can squat, hop, jog in place, pace or exercise as long as only their feet rest on the ground. They cannot leave the confined area and bathroom breaks in the portable toilets are strictly timed. Debbie Miller is the monitor, a perfect role for a woman who spent 21 years with the state prison system. Nothing escapes her eyes. This is our core group, she said. Quite a few of them packed it in, the rest of them got disqualified. The majority just said I cant handle it. She recalled one man who dropped out due to swollen legs, another who had been on dialysis. Then there was the 61-year-old woman who stayed chipper but did not have the stamina and dropped out late Sunday evening. Miller thought the Citrus Kia-sponsored event could end Monday evening, but several of the remaining contestants were not so sure and warned supporters to expect another day. Im holding up all right, Inverness resident Heath Hounshell said. I pretty well know who the competition is. The 33-year-old estimated the event would run through Wednesday and had support from confident friends. I give everyone who came here credit, Miller said. The ones left are in high spirits. She said the next event is planned for January in Ocala. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com. PAT FAHERTY /Chronicle Last Man Standing contestant Heath Hounshell of Inverness was one of the final 11 still standing Monday afternoon. The winner-take-all event has a prize of $5,000. Contestants dwindle in Last Man Standing Associated PressMIAMI A state welfare worker testified Monday that the caretaker of missing foster child Rilya Wilson claimed false family ties to the girl and a younger sibling in order to qualify for state aid, which continued to flow for over a year after authorities believe Rilya was killed. Diana Ramirez Romero, a Department of Children and Families employee who handles economic assistance, testified that 66-year-old Geralyn Graham said she was the grandmother of Rilya and a younger sister, Rodericka, and both girls lived with her. Ramirez Romero said that enabled Graham who used the name Geralyn Smith in their meetings to get cash assistance and food stamps. Graham is not related to the girls and was not even their legal custodian. Her live-in companion, Pamela Graham, was their official caretaker at the time. Geralyn Graham faces life in prison if convicted of killing Rilya. The girl disappeared in late 2000 and her body has never been found. Graham insists she is innocent and has claimed an unknown DCF worker took the girl for a mental evaluation and never returned her. The case shook up Floridas child welfare system, spurring development of a new child tracking system and other key changes in state laws. An older sister of Rilyas, Brandy Sims, attended trial for the first time Monday. Now 18, Sims said she didnt know Rilya but felt compelled to come to court on her behalf. I just wanted to be here for justice for my sister, said Sims, who was accompanied by her adoptive parents and U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla. The congresswoman is not related to Rilya but has been deeply involved in the case and sponsored child welfare reform laws while in the state Legislature. On the witness stand, Ramirez Romero said Graham first applied for state benefits in February 2001 for Rilya and her younger sister. She periodically visited the welfare office several additional times until March 2002, a month before DCF officials finally realized that Rilya was missing. Ramirez Romero said Graham always brought the younger sister with her to those meetings, and on one occasion she asked Graham why Rilya was never there. She told me it was too hard to handle two babies in the interview, Ramirez Romero testified. Did she ever say, DCF took Rilya? asked prosecutor Sally Weintraub. No, Ramirez Romero replied. Earlier Monday, former DCF administrator Barbara Toledo said she and her co-workers began to believe something terrible had happened when they were unable to verify Grahams story about what happened to Rilya.

C10 Surplus Property . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . C10 address issues and recommendations in a regional skills gap assessment delivered last week to its board of directors. That assessment targeted manufacturing, health care, information technology, business and financial services and transportation, distribution and logistics. Seifert said the EDC effort is compatible with what Workforce is doing. And he said the Tampa Bay Regional Partnership, which includes Citrus County, is also addressing the problem. The issue is that weve got 6,000 people unemployed and between 500 and 600 job openings and in some cases these skills dont exist, he said, citing electronics and software as two of the affected local industries. Workforce Connection CEO Rusty Skinner said the assessment quantifies what regional leaders in workforce development, economic development and education had already suspected that a skills gap exists but could not adequately address without specifics. According to the report, employers in key industries believe applicants lack basic academic and soft skills as well as experience and that those applying for manufacturing and healthcare jobs lack critical industry skills. When we say there is a skills gap, were not saying that applicants are unskilled, Skinner said. The issue is, do their skills match whats needed to compete in our current and emerging job market? The answer, at least in some targeted industry sectors, is no. Now we have to focus on the specific skills and skill areas that are needed.

Only now has an agreement been approached. If the deal goes through, both nonprofits and all the clients they serve should benefit. Pearson said Toto would move her food distribution work to the Catholic Charities Outreach Center at 9020 W. Atlas Drive, which is in an industrial park west of U.S. 19 on the north side of Homosassa. But Toto will need to build a shed for food storage and a forklift truck. The shed will cost about $13,000. The Homosassa Civic Club has agreed to finance $8,000, Pearson said. We have a private donor whos going to finance $3,000. And Commissioner Kenney, because he has great relationships out in the community, was able to get a donation from Village Toyota Cadillac of $2,000 and I think we have this almost settled. We just need Ken Frink to make sure the permits go through. I think its going to work out real well. Pearson said civic club leaders would be pleased when the recommendation to offer it the firehouse goes before the board at a future meeting, if an agreement is reached. They will be able to turn that firehouse into an activity center for children and Diane Toto has a much better place to do her food drive. If you havent been out to Atlas Drive, its awesome, nobodys around there. Shes going to be able to serve a lot of people. So, mission accomplished, Commissioner Kenney. Thank you. Kenney said he appreciated everyones effort. Commission Chairman Joe Meek said: This was a big job. A few months ago, it was dividing the community down there. You made it work. Good job. Kenney joked: I got the $2,000 but it cost me $35,000 because I had to buy another vehicle. Commissioner Rebecca Bays responded, A small price to pay. The outreach center came into being just over a year ago when the Knights of Columbus 6954 disbanded and donated its building reported to be worth more than $300,000 to Catholic Charities. We partnered with Catholic Charities, Toto said. Although the civic club has allowed us to use their office for all this time, we really need our own facilities. Toto said at least 15 agencies would be housed at the outreach center, including a free dental agency that was an exciting new service. Toto said dental equipment has been donated by a county dentist who retired and 21 of the countys 54 dentists have agreed to treat patients. Also, since the county put the (expanded) bus route together, all our clients without transportation can now reach us, Toto said. Since the beginning of this month, Citrus County Transit started expanded routes all over the county with places to transfer so that residents as far away as Dunnellon and Floral City could ride the bus to the outreach center in Atlas Drive, where they soon will be offered a number of services, including a medical clinic in addition to dental care, according to Toto. Its going to be like onestop shopping for all our needy clients, Toto said. This has been something we have been dreaming about for quite some time because there is nothing on this side of the county. Toto said she wished the civic club good luck with its learning center. Bitter said the civic club would be thrilled with the proposed agreement. It will consolidate that entire area under the civic club, Bitter said. We have folks who are already lined up to help us with remodeling and design. Were going to have a town meeting. We first hope to help the kids at the school to catch up in mainly their reading skills and math skills. And then wed like to do something with adults, particularly on the computer. We have a lot of senior citizens who have come into the area and have no way of keeping in touch with the grandkids except by letter and phone. We expect that we will get a good reception from the community. We wish everybody well in this whole thing.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated last month that Obamas plan to increase taxes only on top earners would reduce economic growth by 0.1 percent of Gross Domestic Product next year, or about $16 billion. That translates into about 200,000 fewer jobs. By comparison, letting all the tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 expire would reduce economic growth by 1.4 percent of GDP resulting in about 1.8 million fewer jobs, the CBO said. Its a very tiny portion of the cliff impact and it very much raises revenues and it does so in a fair way, Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan, senior Democrat on the taxwriting House Ways and Means Committee, said of Obamas proposal. It will not stifle economic growth in any significant way. Most of the expiring tax cuts were first enacted under former President George W. Bush and extended by Obama in 2010. This time around, Obama says he is determined to let the tax cuts expire on income above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for married couples. He wants to extend the Bush tax cuts for people making less. House Speaker John Boehner and other Republicans have said they are open to more tax revenue through reducing or eliminating tax breaks. But Boehner opposes Obamas proposal to increase tax rates on high earners. Raising taxes on small businesses instead of taking a balanced approach that also cuts spending is wrong, Boehner, said recently. Its only going to make it harder for our economy to grow. And if our economy doesnt grow, Americans dont get new jobs and the debt problem that we have will continue to threaten our childrens future. Republicans often relate the tax increases to small businesses because 94 percent of Americas businesses are structured so that profits go directly to partners or shareholders who report the income on their individual tax returns. Its a way for business owners to avoid paying taxes twice on the same income once at the corporate level and again when profits are distributed as dividends. Under Obamas plan, the 33 percent tax rate would rise to 36 percent on taxable income above $231,000 for a married couple filing jointly. The top tax rate would increase from 35 percent to 39.6 percent on taxable income above $397,000. Obamas plan also would phase out the personal exemption and gradually reduce itemized deductions for individuals making more than $200,000 and married couples making more than $250,000. The top capital gains tax rate would rise from 15 percent to 20 percent. Qualified dividends, which are now taxed at a top rate of 15 percent, would be taxed as ordinary income for top earners, or at a top rate of 39.6 percent. That, some business owners complain, would leave them with less money to hire new workers or keep the ones they have.

the start of a new presidential administration and is aimed at helping U.S. policymakers plan for the future. The report also predicted the U.S. will be energyindependent. Violent acts of terrorism will also be less frequent as the U.S. drawdown in troops from Iraq and Afghanistan robs extremist ideologies of a rallying cry to spur attacks. But that will likely be replaced by acts like cyberterrorism, the studys authors say. In countries where there are declining birth rates and an aging population like the U.S., economic growth may slow. Aging countries will face an uphill battle in maintaining living standards, Kojm said. So too will China, because its median age will be higher than the U.S. by 2030. The rising populations of disenfranchised youth in places like Nigeria and Pakistan may lead to conflict over water and food, with nearly half of the worlds population ... experiencing severe water stress, the report said. That instability could lead to conflict and contribute to global economic collapse, especially if combined with rapid climate change, the authors warn. Thats the grimmest among the Potential Worlds the report sketches for 2030. Under the heading Stalled Engines, in the most plausible worst-case scenario, the risks of interstate conflict increase, the report said. The U.S. draws inward and globalization stalls. Associated PressWASHINGTON The United States could see its standing as a superpower eroded and Asian economies will outstrip those of North America and Europe combined by 2030, according to the best guess of the U.S. intelligence community in its latest forecast. The spectacular rise of Asian economies is dramatically altering ... U.S. influence, said Christopher Kojm, chairman of the National Intelligence Council, as it released the report Global Trends 2030 on Monday. The report is the intelligence communitys analysis of where current trends will take the world in the next 15 to 20 years.

The ruling affects a federal-state program that covers nearly 60 million low-income and severely disabled people, caught in a tug-of-war between Republican governors and the Democratic administration. President Barack Obamas health care law expanded Medicaid to cover people up to 138 percent of the federal poverty line, or about $15,400 for an individual. The change mainly affects low-income adults without children at home, as well as low-income parents who cant get coverage under current Medicaid rules. Under the law, the federal government will cover 100 percent of the cost of the first three years of the expansion, gradually phasing down to a 90 percent share still a far more generous match than states have traditionally received. The expansion, scheduled for 2014, is expected to provide coverage to about half the 30 million people uninsured people who will benefit from the law. But some governors said Medicaid was already straining their state budgets to a breaking point, and the Supreme Court in June gave states the right to opt out of the expansion. Since the court decision, Republican governors have been asking if they can do a partial expansion. The administrations ruling puts the ball back in the states court. Administration officials said states can expand Medicaid part way, but wouldnt get the three years of full federal funding provided under the law. The law contemplated that every Americanwould have a way to get health insurance coverage, Medicaid administrator Cindy Mann said. Its very significant federal support, unlike any other federal support provided to any other coverage initiative. We are going to remain true to that intent of Congress and not waive that provision, she added. Most states are still pondering their decision. Twelve have said theyll turn down the expansion, although legislators are still debating the issue in some cases. Another 14 states have said theyll accept it. Theres no deadline for states to decide, and they can try the expansion and later cancel it if it doesnt work out. Two nonpartisan groups, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Urban Institute, said in a recent report that states can expect to receive $9 in federal funds for every $1 they spend on the expansion. Also on Monday, the Obama administration granted conditional approval to six states to set up new insurance markets called exchanges. Under the law, the exchanges will serve as a one-stop shop for consumers, steering middle-class people to subsidized private coverage and low-income people to Medicaid. Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Oregon, and Washington received approval. Feds rule on health care laws Medicaid expansion Report: Asian economies will surpass United States, Europe

Apopka Ave., Inverness 726-4327 Since 1983 Professional Hearing Centers 000DDBK www.InvernessHearing.com Associated PressTAMPA A woman was convicted Monday of firstdegree murder in the slaying of a lottery winner in central Florida and was sentenced to mandatory life without parole by a judge who called her cold, calculating and cruel. Dorice Dee Dee Moore showed no emotion as a jury foreman read the verdict. Judge Emmett Battles sentenced her to an additional minimum mandatory 25 years for using a gun in the commission of a felony. Moore has 30 days to appeal. I can sleep good at night because I know I had done the very best job, said Defense attorney Byron Hileman. I feel sad for the victim. I feel sad for their families. I feel sad for the defendant because these types of cases are no-win situations. Jurors deliberated for more than three hours before finding Moore guilty of the first-degree murder charge prosecutors had lodged against her in the death of Abraham Shakespeare, who won millions in 2006. Shakespeares mother was in the courtroom, but showed no emotion. She got every bit of his money, said Assistant State Attorney Jay Pruner in closing arguments. He found out about it and threatened to kill her. She killed him first. Hileman argued that there were other potential suspects whom prosecutors refused to consider. There were a lot of people who owed Mr. Shakespeare a lot of money. One guy owed him a million dollars, he said during his closing arguments. The police focused on Dee Dee Moore and they didnt even consider other people. Pruner could not be reached for comment immediately. Battles instructed the jury that it could convict the 40-year-old Moore of a lesser charge. Following the verdict, he called Moore the most manipulative person he had ever seen, describing her as cold, calculating and cruel. Prosecutors built much of their case from confidential informants statements and financial records. Moore was briefly banned from the Tampa courtroom Monday over concerns that she may have threatened jurors. She was back a short time later for closing arguments, but said she did not want to take the stand in order to protect her family. At times, the defendant closed her eyes and averted her face from the jury as prosecutors played audio recordings made by an undercover officer posing as a criminal who would take the fall for Shakespeares murder. Prosecutors said Moore befriended Shakespeare in late 2008, claiming she was writing a book about how people were taking advantage of him. They claimed Moore later became his financial adviser, eventually controlling every asset he had left, including an expensive home, the debt owed to him and a $1.5 million annuity. She ultimately swindled Shakespeare out of his dwindling fortune, then shot him and buried his body under a concrete slab in her backyard, Pruner said. In opening statements, Moores attorney told the jury that his client was trying to help protect Shakespeares assets from a pending child-support case when he was killed by drug dealers who havent been caught. Former inmate Rose Condora, who was locked up with Moore, said she visits her friend every night at the jail. Shes not what people think she is. She did not kill that man, Condora told reporters during a break in the trial. Woman found guilty of murder in lottery death Dorice Moore sentenced to life in prison. Gas drilling can be made cleaner Associated PressPITTSBURGH In the Colorado mountains, a spike in air pollution has been linked to a boom in oil and gas drilling. A thousand miles away on the plains of north Texas, theres a drilling boom, too, but some air pollution levels have declined. Opponents of drilling point to Colorado and say its dangerous. Companies point to Texas and say drilling is safe. The answer appears to be that drilling can be safe or it can be dangerous. Industry practices, enforcement, geography and even snow cover can minimize or magnify air pollution problems. Its like a vehicle. Some cars drip oil, said Russell Schnell, deputy director of the federal Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo. You have wells that are absolutely tight. And you have other places where a valve gives out, and you have huge leaks. The good news, nearly all sides agree, is that the technology exists to control methane gas leaks and other air pollution associated with drilling. The bad news is that the industry is booming so rapidly that some companies and some regulators cant seem to get ahead of the problems, which could ultimately cost billions of dollars to remedy. The worries about what drilling does to the air are both global and local, with scientists concerned about the effects on climate change as well as the possible health consequences from breathing smog, soot and other pollutants. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has made it possible to tap into deep reserves of oil and gas but has also raised concerns about pollution. The industry and many federal and state officials say the practice is safe when done properly, but environmental groups and some scientists say there hasnt been enough research. Some environmentalists say if leaks and pollution can be minimized, the boom has benefits, since gas burns much cleaner than coal, emitting half the carbon dioxide. Al Gore told The Associated Press that its not irresponsible to look at gas as a short-term substitute for coal-fired electricity. But Gore added that the main component of gas, methane, is a more potent heat-trapping greenhouse gas than CO2. That means that if large quantities leak, the advantage over coal disappears, the former vice president said. Associated Press A combine cuts durum near an oil well on Aug. 19, 2008, in Tioga, N.D. The worries about what drilling does to the air are both global and local, with scientists concerned about the effects on climate change as well as the possible health consequences from breathing smog, soot and other pollutants.

Govt investigating phone app makers The government is investigating whether software companies that make cellphone apps have violated the privacy rights of children by quietly collecting personal information from phones and sharing it with advertisers and data brokers, the Federal Trade Commission said Monday. Such apps can capture a childs physical location, phone numbers of their friends and more. The FTC described the marketplace for mobile applications dominated by online stores operated by Apple and Google as a digital danger zone with inadequate oversight. In a report by the FTCs own experts, it said the industry has grown rapidly but failed to ensure that the privacy of young consumers is adequately protected. The FTC did not say which or how many companies it was investigating. Fannie, Freddie execs earned $200KA government report finds median pay for nearly 2,000 senior managers at government-controlled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac exceeded $200,000 last year. The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees the two mortgage giants, also did an inadequate job monitoring pay, according to the report released Monday from the inspector general for the FHFA. Those managers represent nearly 17 percent of the roughly 11,900 total employees at the two bailed-out companies. Compensation for senior managers at the companies cost about $455 million in 2011, according to the report. Taxpayers so far have paid roughly $170 billion to rescue Fannie and Freddie, which suffered huge losses from risky mortgages during the 2008 financial crisis. SKorea volunteers fight pornographyMoon Tae-Hwa stared at his computer, dizzy and nauseous from the hours of porn hes viewed online while his wife and children slept. He feels no shame only a righteous sense of mission. Moon is among the most successful members of the Nuri Cops (roughly net cops), a squad of nearly 800 volunteers who help government censors by patrolling the Internet for pornography in their spare time. Unlike most developed nations, pornography is illegal in South Korea, though it remains easy for its tech-savvy population to find. More than 90 percent of South Koreas homes have high-speed Internet access, and more than 30 million of its 50 million people own smartphones.

Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks edged higher Monday on Wall Street after a strong sales report from McDonalds offset concerns about the surprise resignation of Italys prime minister. Investors also waited for developments in crucial U.S. budget talks. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 14.75 points to 13,169.88. The index traded within a narrow range of just 56 points throughout the day. The Standard and Poors 500 finished 0.48 point higher at 1,418.55. The Nasdaq composite ended up 8.92 points at 2,986.96. McDonalds rose 93 cents to $89.41. A key sales figure rose in November as U.S. customers bought more breakfast offerings and limited-time Cheddar Bacon Onion sandwiches. Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Palm Beach, Fla.-based Banyan Partners, said the companys strength was encouraging. McDonalds, one of the 30 stocks in the Dow, was trading as high as $100 at the beginning of 2012. The pickup in McDonalds sales, he said, gave investors something positive to focus on as Italys sudden political turmoil sent a jolt through European markets. Hewlett-Packard rose 36 cents to $14.16 and also helped push the Dow higher. The companys stock has been battered the past two months following a weak earnings forecast and a public spat with the founder of Autonomy, a company it acquired for $10 billion last year. Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, who has been credited with restoring confidence in the nations economy, announced that he would step down after former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconis party dropped its support for his government. Italian government bond yields, a critical measure of how much the country has to pay to borrow, jumped. Concern that the European debt crisis was enveloping Italy, one of the euro regions largest economies, helped stymie markets around the world earlier in the year. Investors were also following developments in budget talks in Washington. Tax increases and federal spending cuts start Jan. 1 unless a deal is reached to reduce the U.S. budget deficit. Economists say the measures, if implemented, could eventually push the economy back into recession.

The Treasury Department auctioned $32 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.09 percent, unchanged from last week. Another $28 billion in sixmonth bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.135 percent, down from 0.14 percent last week. The six-month rate was the lowest since these bills averaged 0.13 percent on Sept. 17. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the three-month price was $9,997.73 while a six-month bill sold for $9,993.18. That would equal an annualized rate of 0.091 percent for the three-month bills and 0.137 percent for the six-month bills. Separately, the Federal Reserve said Monday that the average yield for oneyear Treasury bills, a popular index for making changes in adjustable-rate mortgages, was unchanged at 0.18 percent last week, the same as the previous week.

O PINION Page A10 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2012 Costas wrong So now Bob Costas is an expert on the Second Amendment and gun control? Like any other knee-jerk liberal dancing on the strings of his puppet master, Costas expresses outrage at the Constitution and says we need more gun laws, all because of the tragedy of the NFL football player who killed his girlfriend, then himself. This was a tragedy, no question about that, but would we have seen the grimfaced Costas chiding the American public if Joe Sixpack had committed these terrible crimes? No, like any other sleazy headline-hunting liberal, Costas is springboarding off this tragedy for his own popularity. Sorry Bob, anyone Ive talked with on this thinks you are a real jerk shame on you for using this tragedy to make yourself look good on air. Sagging popularity is a lame excuse for what you are trying to do. Costas said we need more gun laws huh? It is already against a whole bunch of laws to shoot someone and kill them, but Costas said we need more. How about enforcing the existing gun laws? It would have made no difference in this case. The NFL player would still have shot his girlfriend and himself. What new gun laws would have prevented this? Ah yes here is the hidden agenda total confiscation of all firearms in the USA. That is where the antiAmerican gun grabbers are going with this and we decent Americans cannot allow ourselves to be swayed by the emotional response we feel over the senseless loss of two lives. We cannot for a second believe that confiscation will prevent anything except our freedom. Once we are disarmed, we are no longer free. Bob Costas should stick to sports reporting, which he does passably well, and leave the welfare of the United States alone. If he and his tree-hugging liberal friends dont want guns, thats their decision but dont tell me I have to give up my guns because you need more face time on TV.Harry Cooper Hernando Treated wellI recently had a total knee replacement, spending three days in the hospital, which wasnt a good experience although my doctor and the surgical team were excellent. I decided to go to a rehab facility for my recovery and chose Diamond Ridge in Lecanto. I cant say enough from the time I arrived until discharge. The nursing and therapy staff were incredible they went above and beyond in the care they provided me. It was pretty close to having one-on-one care; their response time was blemish-free. Donna Carl Beverly Hills A re you old enough to remember those brilliant old Tareyton cigarette ads that ran in the 1960s and 1970s (or cigarette commercials at all)? For those readers who are not, the actor in this commercial would appear with a black eye, saying, Us Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch, implying that they would fight, or even take a punch, for a cause or to make a principled decision they believed in, like smoking Tareytons. Those commercials were popular in a turbulent political era, when not only popular politicians but the average American took principled and sometimes unpopular stands on either side of issues, like the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement. That commercial came back to me last Friday when I read that former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist had announced on Twitter that he had switched his registration to the Democratic Party. Suntanned Charlie switched parties, choosing to avoid the fight for moderation in the GOP and take that black eye on his perfect Adonis face. People had been expecting Crist to jump ship for quite a while. Yet his decision marked not only a new phase of a political career along a path of populist expedience in building his peculiar brand of conservative liberalism, a somewhat middle ground politically. It also illustrated a lack of that s fortitude to fight rather than switch. Some GOP moderates, including former Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter who switched parties after 30-plus years as a Republican to avoid a bloody primary fight, lost anyway in 2010. For a tuned-in politician, Crist has made some really bad decisions in the last few years. First, he didnt appoint himself to the U.S. Senate seat Mel Martinez vacated. Then, he decided he wanted to be a Senator after all instead of staying in the governors mansion. Finally, he wasnt up to the fight and decided not to take on Tea Party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio as a Republican. Crist is a truly gifted politician yet somewhat a political enigma. Hes polished and enormously attractive when in front of a lens but also likable to the common man and woman. No one works a room better than Charlie Crist when campaigning, whether for himself or for another candidate. Yet his detractors say he has no true principles, that he will take a stand on an issue only after consulting his pollster first. And now, worse, he is a traitor, a dubious politician who has proven in his abandonment of the Republican Party that he is entirely out for himself, a 21st century Benedict Arnold. And as governor, he ran the state well, his term, in fact, marked by a number of righteous decisions that ran against his partys wishes and his political future including keeping early voting polls open later during the 2008 election and vetoing a bill eliminating tenure for Florida teachers. Crists biggest mistake as a Republican leader was embracing too enthusiastically both the Obama Stimulus package and the president himself when the Wall Street meltdown occurred. His actions at the time were basically no different than what New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did recently in working together with President Obama as storms battered his state. Both governors, as moderate Republicans, correctly recognized that in times of crisis, they must cast politics aside and take the appropriate action to protect the interests of citizens. The difference is that Christie, while taking the black eye from GOP loyalists for his Obama embrace, did not continue a love affair with the president. He turned around and quickly vetoed legislation establishing a state-run health insurance exchange, blaming the Obama administration for not providing the answers he said he needed to make a fiscally sound decision on the presidents health care law. Christie is the same moderate Republican he was before Hurricane Sandy and is looking pretty both for re-election and as a possible presidential candidate in 2016. Crist, on the other hand, chose to continue to embrace Obama, ditch the moderate wing of the GOP and abandon moderate Republican principles. And he did all this in 2010, just when the socialconservative and Tea-Party surge led to initial, but not sustainable, voter support. Now, what remains to be seen is if Crists tortured political journey will continue if he decides to run for Governor as a Democrat and make a Specter of himself.

While the program is relatively new, initial results indicate it is successful. The previous fee for cat adoptions was $35, which basically covers the cost the shelter incurs in checking the animal for disease, neutering, vaccinating and microchipping. On Sept. 15, the county shelter began a six-month trial of free cat adoption where the only cost to the adoptee is a $5 license fee. The initial results show that for the period from Sept. 15 to Nov. 20, cat adoptions increased by 9 percent. The adoption program is an extension of the compromise between the commission and animal advocates who had promoted a no-kill animal shelter that the commission determined was an unrealistic goal. As part of the compromise, the commission approved a Strive for Life program that commits the county to a number of steps intended to reduce the number of animals that are euthanized. These steps include working with individuals and groups who want to see more pet adoptions, working with the feral cat trap, neuter and release program and continuing public education about the importance of spaying and neutering. However, some of these steps, such as spay/neuter programs will only produce results over the long run. The free cat adoption is an effort to immediately increase the number of adoptions, and it seems to be working. If the program continues to be successful, it should definitely be part of a long-term program. We commend Commissioner J.J. Kenney for recommending the free cat program, and employees and volunteers at the shelter for implementing it. While the results are positive, the free adoption program has costs. With a tight county budget, it is questionable if the county can afford to continue the free adoptions past the initial trial phase. This is where volunteers can step in to help make the program a continuing part of the animal shelter programs. We encourage individuals and organizations who want to limit the number of cats euthanized to donate time and money to support the program, and to work with the animal shelter to help secure the longterm funding and volunteer support needed to keep the program operating over the long term. THE ISSUE: Free cat adoption program shows results.OUR OPINION: Program deserves public support.

So lets talk to the garbage people and have them empty those back ends before they ever hit the roadways. Look how they voted For those of you who think things are going to be different the next four years: Look in Mondays paper (Dec. 3) on How your lawmakers voted.

Questions abound Why is it such a shock that Duke Energy did what they did to Citrus County? Anyone paying attention to Dukes history of paying their tax bills should have expected this and prepared for it. What surprises me is the hysteria that is being expressed by some county leaders. Why didnt Geoff Greene know that this was coming? Did he have his head buried in the sand with his fingers crossed when he sent them that bill? If he had no idea that this was coming, or if he did know this was a possibility but did not tell the various county departments prior to their budget requests, he should resign immediately. Dukes tax bill history has been well publicized. It should have been setting off alarms at our tax appraisers office the second the deal to buy Progress Energy was finalized. I believe Geoff Greene failed in his duty to look out for the best interest of Citrus County and should resign. He will not of course, but hopefully at the next election well remember this fiasco. He allowed this money to be allocated on the assumption that it was a done deal. If he was a CFO instead of an elected official, Im sure he would be fired. Why should Duke feel any empathy for Citrus County? Why should they care? Duke isnt going to do whats right for us. They couldnt care less because they worship the bottomline. We arent people to them, we represent numbers only. They know they have us by the Adams apple and can drag this through the courts until we are on the verge of bankruptcy. Citrus County is the only county that has taxed the pollution control equipment at beyond their salvage value. The other nine counties in Florida where they have this equipment do not. In May of this year, Duke let it be known that they had a real problem with the tax assessment. Mr. Greene should have let it be known then that we might have a budget shortfall. This is a direct result of the monopolistic power that the utilities have enjoyed for decades. What can we do as customers to fight this? Take our business elsewhere? I have some thoughts on the PSC and the oversight they enjoy at our expense by the corporate-owned state Legislature. That is for another time. Sheriff Dawsy has implied that we are not safe because of this. School Superintendant Himmel has said cuts are coming. County commissioners say jobs and services will be cut. Is it because Duke isnt paying their bill, or because Geoff Greene didnt anticipate this possibility? Both? It is unfathomable that he did not see this coming. Folks, we are at a crossroads here and it is up to our elected officials to choose which road we will take. We cannot afford a long, protracted court fight because we most assuredly will go broke if it comes to that. Even if we were to win in court, the legal costs in the meantime would financially handcuff the county for years. This isnt a fight between the two biggest kids on the block. Its a fight between a multi-billion dollar corporation and a small rural county that realistically could be on the brink of financial Armageddon. We need to settle this ASAP and get on with county business. This will test the fortitude and intelligence of our elected officials. We are at their mercy and we have no recourse until the next elections. Scary isnt it?Mark Stoltz Inverness Great pig roast Heritage Days in Floral City was an outstanding event again this year. Great weather and great food and fellowship at the TOO FAR Pig Roast! Thanks to everyone for their help, including County Commissioner Scott Adams and his wife Pam.Pat Brady Inverness Follow ADA rulesWith regards to the controversy over dogs in public: The ADA is quite specific about what is and what is not a service animal. I personally have asked our local Walmart to be more aggressive when it comes to screening service dogs in their store. The manager told me it is store policy to only ask does this dog offer you comfort? That is why people are sliding past the federal mandate that service dogs only are allowed into stores, restaurants, etc. I think I speak for most of the doggie people out there when I say that we are good with these laws but not when stores so blatantly disregard it. Now, let me say this there are a lot of disreputable people purporting themselves to be service dog trainers when in actuality all they do is send off information to be laminated and voila you have a service dog ... not! These dogs are highly trained for specific jobs for their partners with disabilities please, lets all work together to make this law work for those who really need it and those of you who carry your little dogs into stores illegally, please stop you are hurting the very people who need these dogs the most.Joanne Peters, CEO Courtroom Dogs For Kids Inc. Homosassa Obstacles too high I have been pondering Scott Adams proposal at the Dec. 4 BOCC meeting to allow four-wheelers into state parks. I applaud his initiative, but I see this plan as full of problems. First is the liability issue; everybody would have to sign a waiver of liability. Children under a certain age would have to ride in a seat with a safety belt. There would have to be a driving age limit say anybody that has a valid state issued drivers license. There would be no booze, an enforced speed limit, no guns, no horseplay, no driving sideby-side and drivers must stay on established trails. The list goes on; not to mention the need for a full-time law enforcement officer on duty at all times there are riders in the park. Sorry Scott, this one doesnt pass the smell test.Lynn & Sandy Dostal Homosassa O PINION C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, D ECEMBER 11, 2012 A11 LETTERS to the Editor Time to recycleIm calling the Chronicle in reference to Recycle. You know, if Citrus County recycles, theres a lot of money to be made in recycling. They could really put that toward the budget. But in order to recycle, to get the people to recycle, they got to give them some type of kickback. So even if you take a couple of dollars off their taxes or off their water bill or something for recycling because they make lots of money in recycling. Its time to give a little bit back and youll get more back.Nutcracker fantastic The performance of The Nutcracker at (Curtis) Peterson Auditorium Saturday was absolutely fantastic.

First you say its cheap, then you reference the money they will spend on hotels and lunches. Which is it? Just one four-wheeler costs thousands of dollars. Besides, it appears forestry doesnt have the manpower to do anything about the mud trucks that tear up the forest roads and dig holes so deep, family users cant get through or around them if they dont have a mud truck of their own. Who is going to police the trails so they dont race? Do you have money in your budget for that? Oh yeah, and when Im hiking in the forest, I just cant wait to hear these four-wheelers tearing up and down the trails. You and I both know that the vast majority wont be family groups on a quiet outing. Im sure the hikers, birders, geocache enthusiasts, native plant societies and the horse people will have plenty to say about this lame-brained proposal. Neighborhood patrolsInteresting to read that the deputies are patrolling Sugarmill Woods for the past six months. I wish theyd come up and patrol Pine Ridge. And also, since when do detectives have time to do patrols around neighborhoods and keep the neighborhoods safe? I thought the deputies were responsible for that activity.Keep Citrus cleanHelping to keep Citrus County beautiful, why doesnt code enforcement and highway workers pick up all the illegal signs all over the county while driving around in their pickup trucks? Call the violators, penalize them. How about Keep Citrus County Beautiful and litter patrol violators picking up the signs for disposal? Illegal signs are not a beautiful sight in our county. Im a litter patrol volunteer and I do pick up the signs when I can. If we all pull together, we can clean this county up and stop these illegal signs.Great Christmas showWent to see The Nutcracker Suite the other day put on by the School of Arts and Dance here in Inverness.

Protest Associated Press Linda Erspamer, a veteran nurse of more than 30 years at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Mich., stands Monday with a dozen other members of the Michigan Nurses Association on the state Capitol steps in Lansing, Mich., protesting rightto-work legislation. Organ izers said the gathering was meant to symbolize the silencing of unions that nurses said will happen should the legislation become law. Ex-LA official gets prison for child pornLOS ANGELES A former Los Angeles official who once blamed a spinal tumor for his obsession with child pornography was sentenced to seven years in federal prison Monday to be followed by a lifetime of supervision. Sixty-four-year-old Albert Abrams, white-haired and balding, addressed a judge at a hearing attended by his family and friends. He admitted he collected child pornography and distributed sexually explicit images. His lawyer said materials seized from his home covered almost 20 years during which he hid his activities from family members, including his wife of 38 years. Man shot dead near Central Park NEW YORK A man walking down a street outside a school near Central Park was shot in the back of the head on Monday and lay mortally wounded in a pool of blood as his killer escaped with a getaway driver, police said. The shooting occurred around 2 p.m. outside the Saint Thomas Choir School, a small boarding school for young boys on a fairly quiet street between busy avenues teeming with tourists and shoppers. The gunman, wearing a dark coat with a dark hood and khaki pants, came up behind 31-year-old Brandon Lincoln Woodard of Los Angeles and fired what appeared to be a silver semi-automatic pistol, striking him once, police spokes man Paul Browne said. No motive had been revealed. Arm wrestler convicted in death WORCESTER, Mass. A champion arm wrestler from Massachusetts has been convicted in the death of his wife, who jumped out of a window to escape him. Forty-one-year-old Allen Stilkey of Worcester was convicted Monday of manslaughter. His wife, Lisa, jumped from a second-floor window of their home in February during what authorities said was a violent argument. Prosecutors said Stilkey threatened to kill his wife first. They said he had recently taken out a $250,000 life insurance policy on her.

Once on the defensive, Syrias rebels have gained momentum in recent weeks with a number of tactical advances, seizing airbases near Damascus and Aleppo and putting President Bashar Assads forces on their heels. In an interview with Dubai TV, Syrias top military defector said Assads regime is over and advised the president to leave office and let the countrys people decide their own fate. Cuban dissidents denounce arrestsHAVANA Cuban dissidents accused authorities Monday of a wave of arrests to prevent them from gathering to mark International Human Rights Day. More than 100 government opponents were briefly detained and promptly sent back to their homes, human rights monitor Elizardo Sanchez said. The saving grace is that (the arrests) are of short duration, said Sanchez, who heads the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation. A leader of the group known as the Ladies in White said they were rounded up Sunday when they held their weekly protest march outside a Havana church. Israel PM attacks double standardsJERUSALEM Israels prime minister on Monday accused the international community of deafening silence in response to recent vows by the head of the Hamas militant group to fight on until the Jewish state is destroyed, and appeared unmoved by the gathering storm of global condemnation of his governments plans to continue settling the West Bank. Speaking to foreign reporters, Netanyahu accused the international community of having double standards, condemning not-yet-built settlements in the West Bank while standing quiet during a historic visit to the Gaza Strip by Hamas exiled leader, Khaled Mashaal. Making his first trip to the Hamas-ruled territory over the weekend, Mashaal delivered a series of speeches to throngs of supporters vowing to wipe Israel off the map.NKorea readies rocket launchSEOUL, South Korea North Korea is pressing ahead with preparation for a longrange rocket launch after extending its liftoff window by another week until Dec. 29 because of technical problems. Its North Koreas second attempt this year, and the fifth since 1998, to launch a rocket that the United Nations, Washington, Seoul and others call a cover meant to test technology for missiles that could be used to strike the United States. They have warned North Korea to cancel the launch or face more sanctions. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON Your medical plan is facing an unexpected expense, so you probably are, too. Its a new, $63-per-head fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions under President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. The charge, buried in a recent regulation, works out to tens of millions of dollars for the largest companies, employers said. Most of that is likely to be passed on to workers. Employee benefits lawyer Chantel Sheaks calls it a sleeper issue with significant financial consequences, particularly for large employers. Especially at a time when we are facing economic uncertainty, (companies will) be hit with a multimilliondollar assessment without getting anything back for it, said Sheaks, a principal at Buck Consultants, a Xerox subsidiary. Based on figures provided in the regulation, employer and individual health plans covering an estimated 190 million Americans could owe the per-person fee. The Obama administration said it is a temporary assessment levied for three years starting in 2014, designed to raise $25 billion. It starts at $63 and then declines. Most of the money will go into a fund administered by the Health and Human Services Department. It will be used to cushion health insurance companies from the initial hard-to-predict costs of covering uninsured people with medical problems. Under the law, insurers will be forbidden from turning away the sick as of Jan. 1, 2014. The program is intended to help millions of Americans purchase affordable health insurance, reduce unreimbursed usage of hospital and other medical facilities by the uninsured and thereby lower medical expenses and premiums for all, the Obama administration says in the regulation. An accompanying media fact sheet issued Nov. 30 referred to contributions without detailing the total cost and scope of the program. Of the total pot, $5 billion will go directly to the U.S. Treasury, apparently to offset the cost of shoring up employer-sponsored coverage for early retirees. The $25 billion fee is part of a bigger package of taxes and fees to finance Obamas expansion of coverage to the uninsured. It all comes to about $700 billion over 10 years, and includes higher Medicare taxes effective this Jan. 1 on individuals making more than $200,000 per year or couples making more than $250,000. People above those threshold amounts also face an additional 3.8 percent tax on their investment income. Health law brings new fee Ready for its cargo Associated PressDORDRECHT, Netherlands Just as the first storms of winter roll in, Dutchman Johan Huibers has finished his 20-year quest to build a full-scale, functioning model of Noahs Ark an undertaking of, well, biblical proportions. Huibers, a Christian, used books 6-9 of Genesis as his inspiration, following the instructions God gives Noah down to the last cubit. Translating to modern measurements, Huibers came up with a vessel that works out to a whopping 427 feet long, 95 feet across and 75 feet high. Perhaps not big enough to fit every species on Earth, two by two, as described in the Bible, but plenty of space, for instance, for a pair elephants to dance a tango. Johans Ark towers across the flat Dutch landscape and is easily visible from a nearby highway where it lies moored in the city of Dordrecht, just south of Rotterdam. Gazing across the arks main hold, a huge space of stalls supported by a forest of pine trees, visitors gaze upon an array of stuffed and plastic animals, such as buffalo, zebra, gorillas, lions, tigers, bears, you name it. Elsewhere on the ark is a petting zoo with actual live animals that are less dangerous or easier to care for such as ponies, dogs, sheep, and rabbits and an impressive aviary of exotic birds. This boat its amazing, said Alfred Jongile, visiting from South Africa with his Dutch wife. For Huibers, a builder by trade, it all began with a nightmare he had in 1992, when the low-lying Netherlands was flooded, as it has been many times throughout its history. Huibers thinks new floods are possible, not least due to global warming. He cites a New Testament passage prophesying the cities of the coast shall tremble near the end of times. But hes not worried the whole Earth will ever be flooded again. In the Bible, the rainbow is Gods promise it wont be. I had a call from American television, he said, laughing. This has nothing to do with the end of the Mayan calendar, he said. He said his motivation is ultimately religious, though. He wants to make people think about what their purpose is on Earth. I want to make people question that so that they go looking for answers, and ultimately find salvation through God and eternal life, he said. Johans Ark also contains a restaurant on the topmost level and a movie theater capable of seating 50 people. Around the edges of each level of the craft are displays on ancient Middle Eastern history and dress, scenes from the life of Noah, and games for kids, including water pumps and a system of levers to lift bales of hay. Down below there is a honeycomb system of hatches, each opening into an area where food could be sealed in for long-term storage. There is an outdoor space near the stern with a dizzying series of stairwells. Walking around, Johan points out features such as the curvature of the upper deck, which he said would have been used to collect rainwater for drinking, as well as for letting animals such as horses out to exercise where they could run around.

Associated PressLONDON The suburban stillness of the comfortable, two-story homes in west Londons Mortlake neighborhood is broken only by the roar of jets thundering overhead on the final approach to Heathrow Airport. Its a pleasant place, with easy connections into central London, generally free of crime and congestion. That changed early on a sunny Sunday morning in September when a man from Africa literally fell from the sky and landed with a loud thud onto the sidewalk of Portman Avenue, half a block from a convenience store, an upscale lingerie boutique and a shop selling Chinese herbal remedies. In the hours after the crumpled body was found, as early risers were getting up to walk their dogs, get the papers, or go to church, police thought the man was a murder victim. But it was soon determined he had been a stowaway who fell from a passenger plane when it lowered its landing gear directly above Portman Avenue. It was scary, there was a body on the street, and nobody knew at first that he had fallen from a plane, neighbor Stephanie Prudhomme said. There were police everywhere. The identity of the man remains a mystery three months later. He carried no identification, but police believe he may have been from Angola. They are asking the public to help identify the man, whose death has traumatized the neighborhood. Falling man leaves behind questions in London Unidentified man apparently fell from plane

The league wiped out all games through Dec. 30 in its latest round of cancellations. The cancellation of just two more weeks of the season, however, could perhaps signal hope of a deal to begin play in early January. Negotiations between the league and the players association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday the sides are trying to restart talks this week. Daly wrote in an email to The Associated Press on Monday that nothing had been completed regarding a meeting with the union. Source: Bounty ruling TuesdayA person familiar with the decision said former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue will rule Tuesday afternoon on the latest round of player appeals in the NFLs bounty probe, and that any potential punishment will be delayed by a week. The person said the delay is designed to give a federal judge in New Orleans the opportunity to rule on pending motions to throw out the suspensions and remove Tagliabue as the appointed arbitrator for these player appeals to the league. The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because no rulings have been announced. Gatti, Virgil Hill enter boxing hall SYRACUSE, N.Y. Arturo Thunder Gatti didnt live to see his finest day. Gatti, who won world championships in two different weight classes, heads the class of 2013 to be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. The honor, announced Monday, comes three years after his untimely death. A native of Calabria, Italy who was raised in Montreal, Gatti retired in 2007 with a record of 40-9 with 31 knockouts and was selected in his first year of eligibility. Gatti died three years ago in Brazil at age 37 under mysterious circumstances. Also selected for induction were: Virgil Quicksilver Hill, a five-time world champion who won a silver medal at the 1984 Olympics and defended his light heavyweight title 20 times over his two reigns; two-time light flyweight champion Myung-Woo Yuh of South Korea; lightweight Wesley Ramey and middleweight Jeff Smith in the old-timer (posthumous) category; 19th century Irish boxer Joe Coburn in the pioneer category; referee Mills Lane; ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr.; manager Arturo Cuyo Hernandez; cartoonist Ted Carroll; and journalist Colin Hart.

Cameron ran the teams offense since the start of the 2008 season, when current coach Jim Harbaugh replaced Brian Billick. From wire reports Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. When James Shields broke into the big leagues with Tampa Bay, the Rays were no better than the Kansas City Royals. They lost more than 100 games his first season, and fared little better the following year. But by his third season as a starter, the Rays had finally turned the corner, many of their prized prospects forming the nucleus of a team that upstaged AL East stalwarts Boston and the Yankees and advanced all the way to the World Series. Now, after a blockbuster deal that sent Shields and fellow righthander Wade Davis to the Royals late Sunday, the former All-Star pitcher believes everything is in place for Kansas City to replicate the Rays success. The Royals are definitely on the right track, Shields said Monday. They definitely remind me of our season going into our season in the Rays organization, and I think theres a good possibility we can step in that direction. Ive been there when weve lost 100 games before. Ive also won 96, 97 games before, and I think me and Wade bring a little of that to the table, knowing how to win and what it takes to win. The Royals havent known what thats like in years. Despite the matriculation of their best prospects to the big league club, the Royals still struggled to a 72-90 record and a third-place finish in the weak AL Central last season. It was their ninth consecutive losing season, and extended to 27 the number of years its been since the franchise last played in the postseason. The biggest reason for the lousy finish was a dearth of starting pitching, and thats something that general manager Dayton Moore has been aggressively trying to resolve this offseason. Along with acquiring Shields and Davis in arguably the biggest move his tenure, Moore also resigned Jeremy Guthrie to a $25 million, three-year deal and acquired Ervin Santana and his $12 million salary from the Los Angeles Angels. That means Kansas Citys top four starters next season werent on their opening day roster this past year. Our goal is to add as much pitching depth as we can as every organization tends to do, especially this time of year, said Moore. It looks like a good mix of people, I think, with Shield and Santana, Davis said. Associated Press Wil Myers is pictured in 2012.

Referee Kenny Bayless tends to Pacquiao at right. After this, whats next for Manny Pacquiao? Associated PressMANILA, Philippines Manny Pacquiao has already achieved what most of his countrymen can only dream of: lifting himself out of wrenching poverty, securing a future for his children and becoming a hero to Filipinos the world over. Not content with just winning in the ring, Pacquiao also set about making his mark in politics. But after his stunning loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas on Saturday, the 34-year-old is facing some of the toughest questions of his remarkable 17-year career: does his future lay in boxing, politics, show business, religion, or perhaps theres even a new challenge on the horizon? Being the king of boxing, being the highest paid athlete in boxing ... it goes with the territory, boxing analyst Ed Tolentino said. For Pacquiao, the fame was too much to handle. There was just too many things on his plate other than boxing. The distraction was costly for Pacquiao, who trained for two months, compared to 4 1/2 for Marquez. During that time the Mexican bulked up and became more muscular to withstand the blows from Pacquiao that proved so damaging in their three previous encounters.

The Texans (11-1) entered with the NFL s best record. The Patriots (9-3) had the AFCs third-best mark. But New England, with plenty of big-game experience with five Super Bowl appearances and three championships in the past 11 seasons, confused and dominated the Texans, who reached the playoffs last season for the first time since joining the NFL in 2002.

He is certain Chicago is the place for him, though.

I really like that city, he said on a conference call. I thought it would be a good fit for me. Keppinger is set to earn $3.5 million next season, $4 million in 2014 and $4.5 million in 2015 after hitting a career-high .325 in 115 games with Tampa Bay last season. He made 41 starts at third base, 23 at second, 21 at first and 19 as the designated hitter. The White Sox have an opening at third and theres a good chance hell wind up there even though he never discussed that with them. Kevin Youkilis finished last season at the position for Chicago and is now a free agent.

From staff and wire reports work as a baker and a construction worker to earn money for his mother and siblings after his father left them. As a scrawny teenager, he was a stowaway on a ship that took him from his southern hometown of General Santos City to the capital, Manila, where he took up boxing while working as a laborer. After finding success in local bouts, Pacquiao began his international career in the late 1990s. In the next decade, he became a household name by clinching eight world titles in eight weight categories. At home, he was declared a hero, the peoples champ an inspiration to the legions of the poor, and the man the rich and powerful wanted to rub shoulders with. As the titles, honors and money started pouring in, so did distractions. Politicians, minor actors and an assortment of hangers-on formed his huge entourage. You only need a Ferris wheel and his training camp would have been a circus, Tolentino said. In a nation where celebrities, money and politics equal a winning formula, Pacquiao played his card by running for Congress in 2007, but lost. The most popular face in town, he turned to crooning his own songs. His picture endorsed countless products. Hes a regular on TV, and hosts his own show. Hes made a movie. Another passion is cock fighting, a traditional past time in the Philippines. He was Pacquiao Inc. Showbiz takes a lot of time, a lot of energy. You have to prepare for these shows, said boxing commentator Ronnie Nathanielsz. (Pacquiao) loses focus because he has so many things to worry about and attend to. Pacquiao was elected to Congress from his southern Sarangani province in 2010, and has announced he will run for re-election next year. Taking a cue from his political allies, he appears to be building a political organization, with his wife, Jinkee, running for vice governor, and younger brother, Rogelio, for congress in neighboring South Cotabato province. In the meantime, he promised to clean up his act: no more gambling, drinking and womanizing, and took up preaching the Bible. Some called it a public relations stunt for a budding politician, but Pacquiao insisted it was for real. To those who think that way, let us leave them be. I will pray for them. Even Jesus Christ, even after he performed miracles, no one believed him, what more for a sinner like me, he said, adding he did not want to be a pastor but share how the Lord changed my life. Then came the first blow: a controversial decision awarding his June fight to Timothy Bradley. Questions arose if Pacquiao was showing the wear of 17 years in the ring, and whether the distractions catching up with him. Saturdays loss to Marquez, whom he had beaten twice and drawn once, only made the question more urgent, although Pacquiao made no mention of a possible retirement. Among boxers, they dont have the word retirement in their dictionary. Its so hard to admit that all of sudden its over, especially for Pacquiao, Tolentino said. His demotion was from the penthouse to the doghouse, he added. I think really there has to be a lot of soul searching. ... He has to consult his family, his real entourage.

Chris Bosh had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Norris Cole scored 10 for the Heat. Josh Smith scored 22 points and Al Horford finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds for Atlanta, which briefly held the lead midway through the third quarter before the Heat got rolling and moved 1 1/2 games ahead of the Hawks in the Southeast Division. Atlanta is 0-2 against Miami this season and 1-7 since March 2011. A 17-4 run was the difference maker, turning a two-point deficit into an 11-point lead with 1:24 remaining in the third.

Miami stymies Atlanta once more, expanding division lead Associated PressTAMPA, Fla. The fading Tampa Bay Buccaneers talk about needing to make more plays. Coach Greg Schiano just wants his players to concentrate on doing their jobs at all times. The coach rejected the notion Monday that the Bucs (6-7) failed to protect a fourth-quarter lead for the fourth time this season because they did not make enough plays down the stretch of a last-second 23-21 loss to rookie quarterback Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles. Yes, Tampa Bay failed to make a potential game-saving interception, and Foles extended the winning drive with a pair of fourth-down conversions. But Schiano said there were also other factors that contributed to a defeat that dealt a blow to Tampa Bays chances of making the playoffs. Youll never hear that from me. ... I dont think thats the case, Schiano said of the recurring theme of players explanations for squandering an 11-point lead in the final four minutes. I think you have to do your job, and you have to get 11 guys doing their job consistently. ... I think when you focus on making plays, thats exactly when you dont make plays, Schiano added. Focus on doing your job and plays come to you, the game comes to you. Thats what we believe around here. The Bucs were left wondering how Philadelphia was able to end an eightgame losing streak that was the Eagles longest skid since 1970. We did a lot of things that you normally would look at and say that you win the game, but we didnt win the game, Schiano said. The Buccaneers outrushed the Eagles 136 yards to 29, forced the games only turnover and sacked Foles six times. Josh Freeman overcame a slow start to lead three scoring drives that turned a 10point halftime deficit into a 21-10 lead that Schiano felt his defense would be able to protect. It didnt happen, in part, because of what Schiano described as self-inflicted mistakes on both offense and defense. We committed too many penalties, some in crucial situations. Some could be argued, but that doesnt matter. If theyre called, they are, Schiano added. At the end of the game, we have some opportunities to makes the game be over, and we dont do it. Tampa Bay, which fell two games behind Seattle and one behind Washington, Dallas and Minnesota for the final NFC wild-card spot, also surrendered fourth-quarter leads in losses to the Redskins, New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons. Schiano: Do your job Bucs playoff hopes dim after wins squandered

Up 36-32, Reynolds took a steal the length of the court, drawing a foul and hitting a pair of free throws. Another steal from the junior guard led to a jumper by Hunter Roessier, then Reynolds drove the lane and converted on a nice doublepump score. After a free throw by the Buffalos Lane Munz (11 points, five rebounds), Reynolds found Robert Speakman down court as the Pirates easily broke the Villages full-court press, making it 44-33. The fourth quarter saw Crystal River continue to widen the gap, embarking on an 11-3 run from the start to open up a 20-point lead midway through the period. The Pirates had 19 fourthquarter points while clamping down on defense to limit the Villages to just 18 points for the entire second half. Reynolds took over the game in all aspects after the half, finishing with 25 points, 15 rebounds, five assists and four steals. And Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman has seen this before. It was like a repeat of the other night. He wanted the ball, and when he wants the ball, hes very tough to cover, said Feldman. He was drawing double teams, getting to the line, and he can create his own shot better than anyone else on the team. Reynolds went 11 for 20 from the line on the night. Feldman also noted how contagious of an offensive spark he was, as Damien Westfall (16 points, six rebounds) and other Pirate teammates came to life offensively in the second half. Were a second-half team. We come out, get (a) good (offensive) run, and play good defense, said Reynolds. And I just came out looking to score, and get the W. The Villages looked poised in the opening half to pose a challenge, running out to an 11-6 lead following a Lunz 3-pointer and driving score by Henry Liu. The teams were tied at 16 at the end of the first quarter, and the Pirates held a 30-29 halftime edge. In addition to the offensive outburst, the second half saw the Pirates clamp down defensively and on the boards, forcing 19 Buffalo turnovers and outrebounding the Villages 41-19 on the night. Matt Taylor contributed 12 points and six rebounds for Crystal River, while Roessier finished with eight points and six rebounds. The Pirates will visit Hernando tonight for a 7:30 start. Monday in a nondistrict matchup. Seven Rivers trailed for all but 2 minutes in the first half, but a 3-pointer by junior Adam Gage, whose 20 points and 14 rebounds led the game in both categories, lifted the Warriors to a 26-25 advantage with 35 seconds to go in the second period. The teams combined to score just five points in the first 6:20 of the third period before Gage and sophomore Cory Weiand (13 points, 10 rebounds) each dropped in 3-pointers to help their squad build a 10-point edge by the end of the quarter The lead proved crucial in helping the Warriors survive a creeping fourth-quarter rally by Masters (1-5) that included a pair of buckets by three different Eagle shooters. Masters guard Matt Richards made it a tough start for Seven Rivers (3-2) as he connected on three from beyond the arc in the first 4 minutes of play to help Masters to a 14-7 lead. But Warriors senior John Iwaniec (four steals) harassed Richards, who paced his Eagles with 17 points, limiting him to just two more field goals the rest of the game. We made an adjustment after the first timeout because Richards is a great shooter, Seven Rivers head coach Jim Ervin said. Instead of switching defenders on the screen, we left John Iwaniec on him and he did a great job. Cory (Weiand) and Adam (Gage) have stepped up all season for us, Ervin added. I had said in the preseason I hoped our team would be coming together around January after losing four starters from last season, but Im happy with how far weve already progressed since then. The Warriors went 20 for 32 on foul shots. Gage, who made four straight free throws in the waning minutes and had four steals in the game, noted his teammates success at the foul line while lamenting his own foul-shooting struggles early in the game. I need to work on that, Gage said of his free throws. We aim to be around 70 percent as a team, so I need to be right up there. Seven Rivers plays at home again tonight against Academy at the Lakes. Were getting much more solid as a team, and we need to come out (tonight) and play well, Gage said. PIRATESContinued from Page B1 WARRIORSContinued from Page B1 The Royals certainly mortgaged their future to put it together. Tampa Bays biggest prize in the six-player swap is undoubtedly outfielder Wil Myers, widely regarded as the top prospect in the minors. The 22-year-old hit .314 with 37 homers and 109 RBIs last season, and he starred during the All-Star Futures Game hosted by Kansas City, putting together a pair of hits and driving in three runs. Moore said he tried to keep Myers out of the deal, but he also understood that you have to give up something to get something, so he parted with one of the games top prospects. He also sent along righthander Jake Odorizzi, the Royals top pitching prospect, left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard to Tampa Bay. Kansas City also will receive another player or cash. When you get a chance to upgrade and get a pitcher the caliber of James Shields and Wade Davis, we felt it was the right thing for us to do for our team today and going forward, Moore said. The Royals have made a significant financial commitment to winning this season. Along with taking on Santanas hefty contract, the Royals will pay Shields $10.5 million this season while holding a club option of $12 million with a $1 million buyout for next season. Davis is due to make $2.8 million this season and $4.8 million in 2014, with the Royals holding options on the next three years. Shields said he relishes the opportunity to return to the role of franchise ace. It was the same role he had his first few years in Tampa Bay, before David Price and others blossomed, and a role in which he feels comfortable. Hes logged at least 200 innings six consecutive seasons, has 14 complete games over the past two years, and his 3.89 ERA for his career makes him the most effective starter in the Royals new-look rotation. Kansas City starters combined for a 5.01 ERA last season, fifth-worst in the big leagues. Starting pitching, I think thats where it starts, Shields said. What the Rays did the last couple years, its been about starting pitching and defense. Thats the key to success. Hopefully me and Wade can get the job done. TRADE Continued from Page B1 Associated PressWASHINGTON Longwood had this kind of night against No. 15 Georgetown: seven Lancers had multiple turnovers; seven Hoyas scored at least six points. It all meant an 89-53 victory for Georgetown Monday. Its a team effort in the wrong direction, Longwood coach Mike Gillian said. Otto Porter scored a career-high 22 points, added seven assists and four steals and returned after taking an apparent hit to the head during the second half. The point total for Georgetown (8-1) against Longwood (2-8) was much bigger than the Hoyas managed in two of their last three wins. They beat Tennessee 37-36 and Towson 46-40 around a 64-41 win over Texas. Jeylani Dublin led Longwood with 10 points. No. 15 Hoyas cruise onward

Birthday There are strong indications that you could become involved in two or more very serious enterprises in the year ahead. Even if the returns are small at first, dont give up. With time, they could become impressive. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Its important for you to establish your own agenda instead of letting associates set the agenda. Youll know better than they what is best for you. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If youre smart enough to recognize it, some information you possess could give you an edge in a competitive career development. However, nothing will happen unless you make a move. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Get out and mingle, because social gatherings should prove to be enjoyable, provided the group is small and the topics arent of a serious nature. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Certain goals can be much easier to attain if you first visualize successfully achieving them and the ways you go about doing so. Aries (March 21-April 19) Because your words are likely to carry more weight, listeners will prick up their ears to hear what youre saying. Be careful you dont reveal anything unintended. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Chances are youll be more adept than usual at gauging the course of events. Wisely use this gift to anticipate changes that may not be evident to others. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Before signing any type of agreement, you should scrutinize the fine print. Chances are itll be the little details that turn out to be of real significance, and they could make trouble. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you are on your toes and are smarter than competitors, youll fare quite well, especially with commercial involvements. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) It behooves you to be an attentive listener when engaged in a conversation with someone who is young at heart. Tips from this person could brighten your life considerably. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When there is something important you need to accomplish today, theres no need to broadcast it to the entire world. If you want to moan and groan about it, do so only after youve done the job. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you feel you have some good ideas that could benefit co-workers, try to do something about it, even if those who work at your side arent too supportive. Even setting a good example could help. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if you think in small monetary terms, thats OK, because modest profits could quickly add up to a tidy sum. A good attitude could help you find bargains that others overlook.

Associated Press This undated image released by TLC shows Alana Thompson from the reality series "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." The program follows a child beauty pageant participant and her family. Singer Jenni Rivera killed in air crash Associated PressLOS ANGELES Jenni Rivera launched her career hawking cassette recordings of her songs at flea markets, but a powerful voice, soulful singing style and frank discussion of personal troubles powered her to the heights of an industry, transforming her into the one of the biggest stars of the genre known as grupero. Her life was cut short at its peak on Sunday by an airplane crash in northern Mexico that also killed six friends and co-workers. The 43-year-old mother of five and grandmother of two became a symbol of resilience for millions of fans on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. Her fame grew as she branched out into acting, appearing in independent film, reality TV and the televised singing competition La Voz Mexico. Rivera sold more than 15 million copies of her 12 major-label albums and won a string of Latin music awards. Her shows filled both the Staples Center in Los Angeles and Mexicos National Auditorium, a feat few male singers in her industry achieved. Many of her songs dealt with themes of dignity in the face of heartbreak, and her shows were known for their festive atmosphere and her intimate interactions with her fans. She would fill song requests from fans who had suffered heartbreak and setbacks, and would often pull women and girls onto stage to personally tell them to keep moving forward. The plane, being flown by two pilots, was taking her and her publicist, Arturo Rivera, her makeup artist, Jacob Yebale, and two friends, one named Mario Macias and another who was identified as Gerardo, to the central Mexican city of Toluca after a Saturday night concert before thousands in the northern city of Monterrey. All were killed. She was nominated for Latin Grammys in 2008 and 2011. F RAZIER M OORE AP television writer NEW YORK W hat was TV like in 2012? As with every year, it was a mix of the ridiculous and the sublime, the sacred and the profane. A TV-centric political season provided many memorable moments (President Barack Obamas missing-in-action debate performance; Clint Eastwoods empty-chair duet). Excellence persevered with series such as HBOs Boardwalk Empire and Treme, AMCs Mad Men, Historys surprisingly splendid Hatfields & McCoys, ABCs promising new Nashville, CBS The Good Wife and, of course, AMCs The Walking Dead with its icky charm. Then there were stinkers like the best-forgotten ABC sitcom Work It, which, focusing on two guys who dress as women to get jobs, was mercifully axed after just two airings. ABCs Good Morning America finally managed to outfluff NBCs Today and stole the ratings crown. The Tonight Show with Jay Leno wore on. Bottom line: Its not easy to narrow down a Top 10 anything for TV. Still, once this years thousands of hours are assessed, 10 notable achievements emerge, for better or worse. Breaking Bad (AMC). Its notable not only for how twisted, funny and shocking it is, but also for how it keeps on upping the ante. This summers satisfying miniseason ended in a most unlikely fashion, hinting that Walter White (series star Bryan Cranston) might actually break free from his life of spiraling disaster and resurrect his happy home. But then, in the last scene, Walters drug-enforcementagent brother-in-law made the connection that had always eluded him: the drug lord hes been chasing all this time is Walter! Once again, the series never-broken promise was upheld. Next summers final eight episodes arent going to be pretty! Fox & Friends (Fox News Channel). We could easily salute shows that keep us laughing like The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, Saturday Night Live and Real Time with Bill Maher. But maybe we could more appropriately single out one obvious wellspring for those shows humor. Im referring, of course, to Fox & Friends. With their three-part harmony, co-hosts Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade offer up a unique brand of jovially partisan delivery. Theirs is a seamless, finish-oneanothers-sentence knack for issuing the network-designated messages as news. Girls (HBO) Lena Dunham this, Lena Dunham that. Blah, blah, blah. She, in her mid-20s, created, wrote, directed, produced and starred in a half-hour comedy series about 20-something adulthood, femininity and sexuality. She sparked adulation, conversation, arguments and green-eyed envy of her talent. Girls was a series that couldnt be ignored at least, by pop-culture cognoscenti. It will surely be welcomed back in January with even more attention, if possible (with always the threat of a backlash), as viewers resume arguing: Does the series measure up to all the hype? Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (TLC) and Killer Karaoke (truTV). Two new reality shows blazed new trails of idiocy. One capitalized on redneck stereotypes and a 6-year-old beauty pageant veteran. The other invited contestants to sing their hearts out while being zapped with electricity or dunked in a vat of snakes. In a TV universe swamped with reality shows, these two stood apart as groundbreaking, inspired and dismaying if for no other reason than they served as a reminder that each is merely a way station en route to the next extreme in outrageous crassness. Homeland (Showtime). In its second season, this series remained suspenseful, disturbing and riddled with surprises. It mined drama from possibly the most damaged pair of protagonists, opponents and star-crossed lovers in TV history. Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) was a prisoner of war in Afghanistan who had returned home a national hero and soon-to-be-elected U.S. Congressman and, covertly, a terrorist turncoat. Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) was a former CIA agent suffering from a bipolar disorder as well as emotional ties to the man she was obsessed with bringing down. Luck (HBO). This drama set at a California racetrack boasted the rich density of David Milchs writing and a kings ransom of a cast: Dustin Hoffman, Nick Nolte, Dennis Farina, Jill Hennessy and Richard Kind for starters. It explored a strange and fascinating world while capturing the horse races with breathtaking footage. But three horses died during production of the series. That sad fact, and another the show wasnt exactly a ratings blockbuster led to HBO canceling Luck after its first season. Smash (NBC). This NBC musical drama put a bright, sexy sheen on one of filmdoms most timeless tropes: Hey, kids, lets put on a show! Which Smash did, embedding songs and dance into the story of how a Broadway musical comes to life. Sure, Smash took knocks for unbelievable plotlines, cardboard characters and trite show tunes. It gave new life to the term hate-watch (that act of watching something solely to delight in its awfulness). So what? With a show-must-go-on defiance emblematic of Broadway, Smash never flagged in its unique charm and meticulous artistry. Sons of Anarchy (FX). Tough guys on motorcycles selling guns and drugs. Tough women keeping them in line, or trying. Rival gangs, corrupt cops and a club membership in turmoil. Jax (Charlie Hunnam), his mother, Gemma (Katey Sagal), and her husband, Clay (Ron Perlman), were the core of a series that, in its fifth season, raged wilder than ever. A family drama set in a hard-hitting workplace, Sons was bloodthirsty and brilliant like nothing else on TV. Donald Trump (all over the place). Never before has this list bestowed a personal commendation. But then, The Donald is an exceptional TV presence. Whether a game-show host (NBCs The Apprentice), a commentator-at-large (Fox News Channel and elsewhere), a beauty contest impresario (his Miss USA pageant, which is broadcast on NBC), a former almost-candidate for president, or a free-floating billionaire attention junkie, Trump leverages the media with enviable shrewdness. Exactly the nature of Trumps TV appeal has yet to be identified. Equally unexplained is why he always gets a pass from his media gatekeepers, no matter what he says or does. But why sweat the vagaries of stardom? Trump rules. Or if he doesnt, he will surely be the last to know it. Girls, Homeland, Smash among 2012s best

H EALTH & L IFE A s many of my readers know, over the past several days I have had many questions thrown at me regarding a drug called tamoxifen. Tamoxifen is one of the most successful cancer drugs ever used in this country. For women with estrogen receptor-positive (ER-positive) breast cancer, it was the first drug widely used to help slow the progression of cancer, and in some cases lower the risk of getting breast cancer. For decades, we have recommended that women take the drug for five years, thinking that the benefit of the drug lasted five years but not beyond, and also concerned about a few possible long-term side effects that can occur with Tamoxifen for 10 years?

After an initial workup, a CT scan of his abdomen was ordered and it showed a large 18cm (7-inch) mass. This was and enlarged lymph node. The normal size of a lymph node is usually 1 cm. He also lost his appetite and so did not eat much. He also felt very weak. He was on a large dose of narcotics and still he was in significant pain. I saw him on an emergency basis and started a workup. He had a CT-guided biopsy of the mass at the hospital as outpatient. I also did a PET/CT scan, which showed enlarged lymphadenopathy.

Decreased birth rates and increasing life spans are the factors. It is commonly accepted that our older patients see certain doctors with more frequency, i.e. orthopedists, urologists and cardiologists, to name a few. As ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors, we, too, will see an increase in our senior adult patient population. In the next 10 to 20 years, baby boomers on whom we have done multiple tonsillectomies, adnoidectomies and ear surgeries will enter this age group. However, in the future, we will need to change our way of thinking and become more proficient in the diagnosis and treatment of head and neck problems, such as hearing loss, ringing of the ears, skin cancers and growths in the head and neck area. Since the 1960s, the number of people 65 and older has doubled to 33 million people. A century ago, seniors accounted for 4 percent of the U.S. population.

T he holiday season is a joyful time, but stress from increased social pressures and demands on your time can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Holiday activities leave you less time for sleep, relaxation and regular exercise. Disruption of your normal routines can result in anxiety, sleep disturbances, headaches, loss of appetite and poor concentration. Several weeks of this pressure weaken your immune system, leaving you more susceptible to colds and flu. Your own expectations and the expectations of family members can also cause stress that affects your mental well-being. This year, aim for a happier, healthier holiday season. The best gift you can give your friends and family is genuine enjoyment of the time you spend together. Here are some tips for managing holiday stress: Plan ahead. Schedule specific times for activities such as baking, decorating and giftwrapping. Make a shopping list and plan your shopping so you make as few trips as possible. Shop early to avoid the crowds.

Joseph Bennett NAVIGATING CANCER USDA to allow more meat, grains in school lunches Associated Press WASHINGTON T he Agriculture Department is responding to criticism over new school lunch rules by allowing more grains and meat in kids meals. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told members of Congress in a recent letter the department will do away with daily and weekly maximums of meats and grains. Several lawmakers wrote the department after the new rules went into effect in September saying kids arent getting enough to eat. School administrators also complained, saying set maximums on grains and meats are too limiting as they try to plan daily meals. This flexibility is being provided to allow more time for the development of products that fit within the new standards while granting schools additional weekly menu planning options to help ensure that children receive a wholesome, nutritious meal every day of the week, Vilsack said in a letter to Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D. The new guidelines were intended to address increasing childhood obesity levels. They set limits on calories and salt and phase in whole grains. Schools must offer at least one vegetable or fruit per meal. The department also dictated how much of certain food groups could be served. While nutritionists and some parents have praised the new school lunch standards, others, including many conservative lawmakers, refer to them as government overreach. Yet many of those same lawmakers also have complained about hearing from constituents who say their kids are hungry at school. Though broader calorie limits are still in place, the rules tweak will allow school lunch planners to use as many grains and as much meat as they want. In comments to USDA, many had said grains shouldnt be limited because they are a part of so many meals, and that it was difficult to always find the right size of meat. The new tweak doesnt upset nutritionists who fought for the school lunch overhaul. Margo Wootan, a nutrition lobbyist for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, says the change is minor and the new guidance shows that USDA will work with school nutrition officials and others who have concerns. It takes time to work out the kinks, Wootan said. This should show Congress that they dont need to interfere legislatively. Congress has already interfered with the rules. Last year, after USDA first proposed the new guidelines, Congress prohibited USDA from limiting potatoes and French fries and allowed school lunchrooms to continue countingtomato paste on pizza as a vegetable. The school lunch rules apply to federally subsidized lunches served to low-income children. Those meals have always been subject to nutritional guidelines because they are partially paid for by the federal government, but the new rules put broader restrictions on what could be served as childhood obesity rates have skyrocketed. School kids can still buy additional foods in other parts of the lunchroom and the school. Congress two years ago directed USDA to regulate those foods as well, but the department has yet to issue those rules. Montana Sen. Jon Tester, a Democratic among the lawmakers who wrote to USDA about the rules, praised the move. Schools need flexibility to make sure kids get the nutrition they need to focus on their studies, he said. Associated Press Side salads await the students of Eastside Elementary School on Sept. 12 in Clinton, Miss. The Agriculture Department is respon ding to criticism over new school lunch rules by allowing kids to eat more grains and meat in the lunchroom. Dr. Carlene Wilson WELLNESS CORNER 000DE18

C2 T UESDAY, D ECEMBER 11, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE H EALTH& L IFE H ello again and happy holidays! The weather is changing, the spirit of love is in the air, the decorations are in place and the aroma is spicy. I love the holiday season! I wish that we could bottle it up and release it throughout the year. All seems so wonderful; however, we tend to battle with the stress of deadlines, busy schedules and a lack of time. How do we embrace this season by accomplishing our lists while looking and feeling great? Here are some tips to express style! Shhh! No one will know that you just threw it together. What to wear: Its time to pull out the bling, accessories, hats, scarves and all of the fun things that are just waiting to complement your outfit. You can dress up a simple black dress with tights and boots to make a great ensemble. Accessorize that plain black with artsy or rare pieces. Accessories will set off any old outfit! Add a suit blazer to jeans, a sexy cameo with an overcoat, dresses with high belts or skinny jeans with boots all are very simple to create. When you are in a rush, convert business attire to eveningwear with a simple change of accessories, shoes and a flashy sweater. Remember that comfort is important, so look for the support pads that you insert into your shoes for added cushion. Hair: If you have fine hair and it is difficult to style, simply skip a day of shampooing so the natural oils and leftover product will make your hair feel thicker. Use a large-barrel curing iron, flatiron or round brush and blower with a light mist of hairspray to style it into place. Do not overspray to finish; allow it to be free! If your hair is super-thick, getting rid of some of it by pulling it back will save time. Sloppy tousled hair is in and very sexy. Yes, mature women who wear modern style are sexy! Simply twist and tuck the hair back and secure with crisscrossed bobby pins. Finish with a light back comb to hide the pins. Another cool look is the modernized topsy tail on top. It adds height and volume. Remember that hair is an accessory and should complement your outfit. Sleek lines require sleek hair. Do not wear full hair if you have a lot of poof around your neckline or sleeves. It is always a good idea to sneak a peek in the mirror from a distance to see if your outfit and hair appear balanced. Going too heavy on accessories can look tacky; too much hair can, as well. Add a splash of sparkle, but not as much as the tree has. Makeup: Mineral is the best, as some lines have a stronger dye load and last all day. Choose matte finish for mature skin and shimmers for highlighting. Choose colors that will complement your wardrobe. Also remember to bring your compact along with you to touch up prior to photos. Mineral makeup will outlast you for sure! Etiquette: Remember to always bring the party hostess a gift! If it is your party, give yourself a break by hiring a few helpers to prepare and serve. This will alleviate much stress and allow you to be the hostess. Make sure that you mingle with all of your guests, introducing them to each other. Sometimes nametags are fun, as people can converse easier knowing names. Entertain with great food, drinks, friendship and radiate with your hospitality! Remember to enjoy the reason for the season! Try not to get wrapped up in too many details that really do not matter. Enjoy your blessings with Thanksgiving and praise. May God bless your holiday season and all of those in need!

Tips to look and feel great this holiday season Yai Yai LIFE N STYLE holidays mean to you, and set priorities for yourself and your family. Do not compare yourself to your friends and neighbors celebrate in your own way. Simplify. Do not try to do everything. Ask each family member to choose one activity or tradition that he or she particularly enjoys, and concentrate on those. Keep your holiday meals simple and use some store-bought items to lighten the workload. Get enough sleep. You can deal with stress better when you are not overtired. Make a regular bedtime one of your priorities. Make a budget and stick to it. Piles of expensive gifts do not create happiness. The stress and anxiety of dealing with debt can endure for months after the holidays. Your family and friends would much rather receive a simple token of your affection than cause you a financial burden. Ask them! Take time to relax and exercise. Schedule some quiet time to take a walk, sit down and watch a favorite TV show, or enjoy a cup of coffee with a friend. Eat healthy foods. Have a healthy snack before you go to a party to diminish the temptation to overindulge. Fill your plate with fruits and vegetables. Serve yourself small portions of rich foods and eat them slowly. Compensate for calorierich meals by eating lightly the rest of the day. Avoid fatty sauces and dressings, or substitute low-calorie ingredients in your holiday recipes. You can find many ideas on the Internet. Set aside time for your children. Children enjoy your attention more than anything else. Simplify your holiday activities so that you can devote time to playing with them, going for walks or outings, or doing craft projects together. Help your children to manage stress. The intense materialism of Christmas can bewilder and confuse children. Establish family traditions that emphasize spiritual values and family relationships. Make sure children get enough rest. Plan some activities or games to keep them entertained during family gatherings. Older teens may not want to spend all their time with family, but arrange for them to participate in specific activities. Family is important for them too. Your adult children may have other holiday obligations. Be understanding if they cannot come to your traditional holiday celebration. Arrange other ways to communicate, such as phone calls or Skype, an alternative celebration on another day, or a shared video. Avoid family conflicts. Stress and alcohol bring out the worst in people. Sidestep confrontations with difficult family members, and put aside hurt or angry feelings until you can discuss them later with someone who sympathizes. Reach out to others. If you are alone during the holiday, consider volunteering your services at a church, shelter, hospital or nursing home. Organize a shared meal with neighbors or friends. Talk to your doctor or seek professional counseling if you feel extremely depressed, overwhelmed, or anxious during the holidays. Keep your family safe. Follow safety precautions to prevent accidents when putting up lights and decorations. Keep glass ornaments and small objects, as well as nuts and alcoholic drinks, where toddlers cannot reach them. Be careful when using candles, and turn off lights when you are away from home. Designate a driver if alcohol is being consumed. If your teenagers are going to a party, make arrangements to pick them up (no questions asked) rather than have them ride with someone who has been drinking. Have a healthy, happy holiday!

WILSON Continued from Page C1 figure has tripled, and by estimates will reach more than 20 percent by 2030. In 1996, one-quarter of the senior population assessed their health as fair or poor, compared to 10 percent for all persons. Most older people have at least one chronic condition, and most have multiple conditions. Of the most frequently occurring ENT problems, hearing loss and sinusitis were in the top 5 percent of the complaints. In an effort to better communicate and meet the needs our senior population, the ENT must focus on the more common complaints that affect patients 65 years of age and older. This will include ear problems such as hearing loss, balance disorders, noises in the ear and wax obstruction. Nasal problems include allergies and sinusitis as the most common and can be as involved as severe nose bleeds, secondary to high blood pressure and blood thinners. Other nasal problems can affect airway and quality of sleep, which is often a common problem in the elderly. Diminished smell and taste disorders are widespread, but fortunately benign. Head and neck cancer is very common because many people from this generation were unaware, early on, of the dangers of alcohol and tobacco consumption. It is important that the ENT understands a senior adults need for quality of life, not just the issue of longevity at any price. There are many factors that enter into this equation. Families tend to play a greater role in the decision-making process for elderly patients. Surrogate decision-makers need to be evaluated closely. Achieving consensus may require more time and effort. On the other hand, an individual who is the sole caregiver for an ailing spouse may have special needs. An example of this type of situation is an elderly gentleman with throat cancer and a wife who has Alzheimers. The husband may not be able to undergo a complicated surgery with a lengthy recovery time in the hospital, and may need to opt for outpatient radiation therapy, which will allow him to continue to care for his wife. A future ENT will have to take these factors into account, or he will not be able to properly address the problems of the senior patient. Currently, there are efforts by the Academy of Otolaryngologists to address this concern in the training of new doctors.

When I was 21 years old, I had all my teeth pulled. New ones were not put in immediately. I still have the same dentures. That makes them 65 years old. This was done in Rhode Island. Ive never used any kind of stuff to hold them in. They are thin in the roof part and bottom teeth are worn down some. I eat anything. My question is: Have you ever met anyone else who has had dentures that long, still in fine working condition? A: Thanks for your email. This is a good question, and it brings up some interesting points. First off, congratulations on having a set of teeth that have been so useful for such a long period of time. You are not alone in this category. There are many people from your era who have experienced much the same situation. This reminds me of a professor at dental school who I was very fond of. His name was Dr. Remy. Dr. Remy was the kind of guy who made a set of teeth similar to what you have described. Simply stated, he made them the old fashioned way with great success. He had much to offer as an instructor, but he was longwinded and very picky in approving the student to move on to the next step. As you might suspect, this meant he was always available and had lots of time to spend with you if you had the patience for him. Thankfully, my Dad taught me to seek out those who could help bring you to the next level and stick with them. As you probably suspected, I did all of my removable denture cases with Dr. Remy and loved every minute of it. He had so many tricks to offer that lead to a successful denture, even in tough situations. I never had to wait to have my work checked because no one else wanted to work with him. I always think of him and silently thank him for all the knowledge he gave me. Once again, Thanks Dr. Remy! Back to you: One of the reasons you have had such success is the fact that you did not have the dentures placed immediately after the extractions. You might recall from previous columns that immediate dentures are what we do most of the time because people of our time do not want to go without teeth for any period of time. There are many tricks available to make them successful, but there is nothing like waiting for healing to take place and then making the dentures. It leads to a better-fitting set of teeth that have the potential to last longer. That being said, please know that you are the exception rather than the rule when it comes to denture longevity. Also know that, though a denture can fit as well as you have described, over the years there are likely changes to ones appearance that might be evident. Through the process of creating a new set of teeth, many of those changes can be addressed if it is important to the patient. If this were not the case, one would probably continue using the teeth they are comfortable with. Another potential concern is the wear that occurs over time. You made mention of this. When the material gets thinner, it is also weakened. If enough pressure were put on the denture through either normal chewing or a fall to the floor, the denture is more apt to break. Though things like this can normally be repaired quickly, one might prefer to have a new set of dentures made, as either a backup set or their primary ones. I hope that I have answered your question adequately. I want to thank you for reminding me once again of Dr. Remy. The story I told here always puts a smile on my face. He was a great man. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S. Suncoast Blvd., Homosassa, FL 34446 or email them to him atinfo@Masterpiece DentalStudio.com.

Health NOTES showed he had diffuse large cell Non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL).This is a cancer of the lymph nodes. Groups of tiny, beanshaped organs called lymph nodes are located throughout the body at different sites in the lymphatic system. The largest concentrations of lymph nodes are found in the abdomen, groin, pelvis, underarms, and neck. Because lymph tissue is found in so many parts of the body, NHL can start almost anywhere and can spread to almost any organ in the body. It most often begins in the lymph nodes, liver, spleen, or bone marrow. NHL has many different types and subtypes, and the exact diagnosis is very important. It can be either lowgrade or intermediate or high-grade, depending on what pathologists find under the microscope. My patients NHL was intermediate grade or an aggressive one. These types of lymphoma usually need more intensive chemotherapy. Treatment is usually started immediately. These lymphomas are often curable. He was in agony from his pain when I started the treatment with chemotherapy. He was on RCHOP chemotherapy, which is a combination of five different drugs. This is very aggressive treatment. One week after I started his treatment, his pain was markedly better and he needed very little narcotics. Two weeks later, he was completely pain-free, his appetite markedly improved and he felt a lot better. He lost his hair from chemotherapy, but he overall felt much better because the cancer responded to treatment. After two months, I checked his PET/CT scan again. His cancer which was 18 cm in size before treatment, now shrunk to only 1 cm. He is finishing remaining chemotherapy of a total course of 18 weeks. I am very optimistic that his cancer is in complete remission and he has an excellent chance of cure. Remember, there are many new remarkable treatments for cancer.

But that may all change, because patients with earlystage ER-positive breast cancer seem to show evidence of an improvement in the risk of recurrence and the risk of death if they continue tamoxifen for 10 years instead of just five years. The data from this study, recently presented, was published online Dec. 5 in The Lancetto coincide with a presentation at the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. Researchers from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom assessed the effect of continuing therapy with tamoxifen for 10 years instead of stopping at five years. A group of 12,894 women from the worldwide Adjuvant Tamoxifen: Longer against Shorter trial who had early breast cancer and had completed five years of treatment were randomly allocated to continue treatment to 10 years or stop treatment. The effects on outcome were reported for the 6,846 women with ER-positive disease. The researchers found that continuation of tamoxifen correlated with significant reductions in the risk of breast cancer recurrence, breast cancer deaths, and the overall risk of death. During years five to 14, the cumulative risk of recurrence was 21.4 percent for women allocated to continue tamoxifen and 25.1 percent for controls, and the breast cancer death rate was 12.2 and 15 percent, respectively. Long-term follow-up is ongoing. So, as you can see, there is a small but real benefit noted with continuing treatment. These results, taken together with results from previous trials of five years of tamoxifen treatment versus none, suggest that 10 years of tamoxifen treatment can approximately halve breast cancer mortality during the second decade after diagnosis. So, if you are on tamoxifen, talk to your physician, look at all factors regarding this medication, including the side effects and longterm risks, and determine individually whether taking tamoxifen for 10 years is the right thing for you.

I t was a most delightful Citrus Christmas Present from the allvolunteer Citrus Community Choir last Sunday at St. Timothys Lutheran Church in Crystal River, directed by Jacki Scott with accompaniment by Sally Smith. With a nostalgic noting of the groups debut at St. Timothys in 2003 with 22 members, the group has grown to include 42 and is able to offer annual scholarships. It was a mix of popular and traditional holiday favorites, like Theres No Place Like Home for the Holidays evoking memories of family gatherings of the past. The concert opened with a rousing rendition of Lets Have a Christmas Celebration, written by David T. Clydesdale, followed by the deeply moving What a Wonderful Child, featuring soloist Natalie Brown. Cellos and violins added to the magic of the musical selections. We were favored with a traditional Catalonian carol, The Icy December, written by Mark Hays, followed by Some Folks Christmas by Suwannee River composer Stephen Foster and Greg Gilpin. The gifts of the choir continued to delight us with Theres No Place Like Home For the Holidays with soloists Carolyn Crawford and Steve Johnson, a piece written by Al Stilman, Robert Allen and Mark Hays. The first half of the festive concert was concluded with Everywhere Christmas Tonight composed by Phillip Brokks, J. Paul Williams and Joseph Martin. The second part of the concert was the Citrus County debut of A Christmas Cantata written by Archangelo Corelli and only the second performance in Florida. It was a resounding Christmas proclamation with soloists Jim Houle, Shirley Perregaux and Ashlyn Gibbs. The third part of the concert featured Jesus Child composed by John Ritter, the story of Jesus, the shepherds, the angels, Joseph and Mary, and the shining star over His head. The familiar Lord of the Dance, by Sydney Carter and David Willcocks, Wonder as I Wander by John Ritter, and the classic favorite Silent Night, by Franz Gruber and David Willcocks, concluded the Citrus Christmas Present to a most appreciative audience of Citrus Community Concert Choir fans. A festive We Wish You a Merry Christmas was the closing signature on the choirs lovely Christmas card to all of us who enjoy their annual presentations. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo to the choirs violinists, Liesa Miller, Jean Beck, Anna Lane and the cello soloists, Virginia Lane and Stephen Lane. The adaptation of Archangelos Christmas Cantata was a stupendous effort on the part of each member of the choir and its director and accompanist. Bravo! Bravo! Sincere appreciation is extended to the dedicated officers: President Jim Houle, Vice President Sally Mackler, Treasurer Muriel Chess, Secretary Barbara Benson and the choir representatives, Karen Briskie and Robert Morris.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, D ECEMBER 11, 2012 C5 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. In todays deal, the necessity is winning nine tricks in three no-trump. How should South try to do that after West leads his fourth-highest heart and East puts up the 10? In the old days, responder bid four-card suits up the line at the one-level. But nowadays, players often skip over diamonds to show a major. That is especially valid when the diamonds are weak and the major is strong. Souths rebid of two no-trump shows a balanced hand too strong for a one-no-trump opening and too weak for a two-no-trump opening usually 18 or 19 high-card points. It is in principle game-forcing, unless responder miscounted his points on the first round, bidding with fewer than the normally expected six points. South starts with eight top tricks: two spades, two hearts and four diamonds. He does not have time to establish the clubs. The play would go heart, club, heart, club, run the hearts for down one. Instead, declarer must try for a third spade trick. It looks normal to play low to dummys jack, but that is not the best line. That requires Wests having the queen (or the 10 and nine being doubleton or third). There is a second chance: that West has the 10 and nine of spades. First, South should play a spade to dummys eight. Here, it brings out the queen and the contract is home. But if East could win the trick more cheaply, South would finesse dummys jack on the second round, having lost nothing when compared to a first-round finesse of the jack.

Its a part-time job at minimum wage, but the kids are great, and I am grateful to be employed. My problem is with the supervisor of the program. Jane constantly changes our group assignments, putting us with a different age group almost every day. This makes it difficult for the kids to bond with us as their caregivers and settle into a routine. Since the kids have various activities outside of our program, keeping up with the everchanging schedules to make sure they get where they need to be is a nightmare. Even worse, Jane sometimes subs if one of the regular caretakers is absent, and she is terrible with the kids. She frequently loses her temper and yells at them, and I overheard her tell one little boy that he was bad when he misbehaved. And several of us were present when she used racial slurs about some of the children. One of my coworkers, Sara, finally decided she had to speak up, but when she went to Janes supervisor, it turned out Jane had already lodged a complaint about Sara, and instead of listening to what Sara had to say, they fired her. Sara was a dependable, dedicated worker who was loved by the kids. We think Jane sensed Saras growing dissatisfaction and struck first. Saras dismissal has made the rest of us afraid to say anything to upper management for fear of getting the same treatment. What should we do? Worried for the Kids Dear Worried: You need to register a complaint about Jane in a large enough group that no ones job is threatened. First, document instances of mistreatment or inappropriate behavior with the children. Then several of you should speak to Janes superior, together, and present your record of evidence. Dont make it personal. Surely the school would not want to leave itself open to a lawsuit from a parent. Dear Annie : I am a 60-year-old divorced female and have been seeing Harrison for three years. Despite the fact that Harrison is a wonderful man honest, funny, handsome, loyal and hardworking there is one thing I cant get past: He is terribly under-endowed, if you get my drift. Im embarrassed to even think of complaining about this, but it affects the whole lovemaking thing. Ive always had a strong sex drive, and the lack of, um, size is unsatisfying. How do I get past this? I truly care about Harrison and hate to think that Im so shallow that his size would matter so much. Its as petty as a man saying his girlfriend is great, but shes flat-chested, so shes out. But obviously its bothering me enough to write. What do you think? Another Little Thing in the Way Dear Little Thing : We wont get into the size doesnt matter discussion, because it obviously matters to you. First, try Kegel exercises (talk to your gynecologist for information). It is also possible to find greater satisfaction through different positions and techniques and the use of sex toys. But only you can determine how important this is to your relationship. If you truly love Harrison, this is something manageable. Otherwise, its simply a source of frustration. Dear Annie: This is in response to N.Y., N.Y., who didnt want to visit her aging grandmothers. Guess what? Its not all about you. Those old people are still in there in that failing mind and body. Life gives us all kinds of opportunities to set aside our comforts and be of service to someone in need. Stopping by to say hello, even if we just hold their hand while they sleep or listen to their babblings, allows them to know at some deep level that we care about them.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerLECANTO The business of fighting back against Progress Energy Florida over its 2012 tax payment began Monday with the Citrus County Commission and school board agreeing to fund start-up costs for what could be a lengthy legal battle. Before a sparse crowd of fewer than 50 people at the College of Central Florida in Lecanto, both boards agreed to pay up to $175,000 each in the next six months to contest a lawsuit Progress has brought against Property Appraiser Geoff Greene over the assessment of its energy complex north of Crystal River. The funds also will go toward Greene creating a baseline appraisal of real and tangible property at the nuclear and coal plants. Officials said the appraisal, which could cost an additional $320,000, is necessary to give the county a true value of the companys taxable assets. Both boards also formally approved adding the county commission and school board as defendants, along with Greene, the tax collector and Florida Department of Revenue. Greenes attorney in the Duke case, Thomas Cloud of Orlando, said it could be one of the largest tax cases in the states history. We havent seen a challenge of this magnitude ever, Cloud said.

Members of the Crystal River City Council, sitting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, approved City Manager Andy Houstons request Monday night to continue studying the project another 60 days. Riverwalk is a boardwalk connecting Crackers restaurant with Charlies Fish House. City business leaders said Riverwalk would be a significant tourist attraction. Chronicle Publisher Gerry Mulligan, who heads the chamber of commerces Crystal River area council, said Riverwalk would showcase the bay. We have one of the most beautiful assets in the whole world, Mulligan said. We have kept that view from people for many, many years. Houston said the estimated cost is $1 million. See TAX / Page A2 Truce called in firehouse war EDC addressing skills gap PATFAHERTY Staff writerHaving the right workers available to meet the needs of existing and emerging employers has been an ongoing concern of the Citrus County Economic Development Council. The issue of a skills gap in the local workforce mirrors the employment situation at the national, state and regional levels. In 2013, the EDC will have a subcommittee focusing on that issue, according to EDC Executive Director John Siefert. It will consist of EDC board members and include representatives from Withlacoochee Technical Institute, College of Central Florida, the Citrus County School District and Citrus Memorial hospital. We have a skills gap in Citrus County, Seifert said. Its bigger than this region. Florida and the U.S. suffer from having jobs available that they are unable to fill with skilled workers.

The proposed agreement, which has yet to be finalized, was revealed last week at the end of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners meeting, when Commissioner John JJ Kenney asked Cathy Pearson, assistant county administrator and director of Community Services, to give an update. This has been a project that Commissioner Kenney, Ken Frink and myself have been working on for months, Pearson said. Diane Toto with We Care and the Homosassa Civic Club were both vying for that building. After many months of working it out, Diane has graciously come up with the idea to move to the outreach center on Atlas Drive in Homosassa. The conflict began in April, when the civic clubs lease on the fire station at 10950 W. Yulee Drive expired and the county declared it surplus property that could be turned over to a nonprofit group to advance its work in the community. The civic club had an arrangement with the We Care Food Pantry to use the fire station twice a month to distribute food to the needy. The civic club applied to own the fire station at the same time that Toto, food pantry president, made a claim to continue using the property for food distribution. Jim Bitter with the civic club said the club needed the property to convert the old firehouse into a learning center for children and adults. The battle between the two nonprofits has been waged since April. Plan could affect 940,000 owners Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas plan to increase taxes on top earners would have only a small impact on the nations economy, according to congressional budget experts. But dont tell that to small-business owners facing a tax hike. Obamas proposal would hit about 940,000 people who report business income on their individual or household returns, said the Joint Committee on Taxation, the official scorekeeper for Congress. Thats only 3.5 percent of the people who report business income, but those business owners are projected to earn 53 percent of the $1.3 trillion in business income that will be reported on individual returns next year. That, Republicans in Congress argue, makes those business owners an important engine for economic growth and job creation. They recite it as gospel: Paying higher taxes will reduce the amount of profits business owners would otherwise re-invest in their companies, making them less likely to expand and hire more workers. Many economists agree tax increases in general limit economic growth. But there are big disagreements about magnitude how much relatively small changes in the top two income tax rates would affect the economy Obama tax plan no small deal to small businesses From staff reports See BUSINESS/ Page A5 See BUILDING/ Page A5 Its going to be like one-stop shopping for all our needy clients.Diane Totowith We Care Food Pantry.

company, Duke Energy, paid $19.3 million for its 2012 taxes. County officials say the actual tax bill, based on Greenes assessment of the property, is about $36 million. The difference plunged both the commission and school board into a financial crisis, with each now missing $7.5 million and $8.1 million, respectively, from their current budgets. Progress lawsuit challenges the methodology Greene used to create his assessment, particularly on pollution-control equipment added in 2009. Greene pegged the value of that equipment at more than $1 billion; the company says it should be considered salvage and taxed at a much lower rate. The company is basing its argument on a state law that creates a special classification for pollution-control equipment that practically exempts it from taxation. Greene said a Citrus County circuit court judge in 1998 ruled that law unconstitutional. Officials said if Progress sticks with its decision to pay $19 million in taxes in 2012 and in the coming years, it would reduce the companys taxes $340 million over 30 years. Greene bases his decision to tax pollution-control equipment on the 1998 case involving former Property Appraiser Ron Schultz. Since then, however, the Supreme Court ruled in a separate case that the property appraiser cannot challenge the constitutionality of a state law. Cloud said that that high court ruling requires the county commission and school board to participate along with Greene in the Progress case. While each boards vote was unanimous to join the lawsuit and pay toward expenses, Commissioner Scott Adams suggested settling with Progress to avoid costly litigation. He said the company has uncertainty with its broken nuclear power plant, offline since 2009, and the future of two of its coal burning plants. We have to be realistic, he said. He noted that Progress representatives met with county and school board officials two weeks ago and offered to pay $30 million in taxes this year. Those officials, including County Administrator Brad Thorpe and County Attorney Richard Wesch, told the Progress representatives that they could not negotiate a tax payment and that Progress should be negotiating assessments with the property appraiser. Adams suggested taking the companys offer and then participating in a lawsuit regarding the assessments. Do we really think a court, after paying lawyers for three years, will get us a more generous offer? Adams said. Adams, as he did during the boards emergency meeting on Nov. 30 to discuss the Duke issue, railed against prior commission spending and for use of reserve funds to help balance the county budget. We got caught with our pants down to our ankles with this Duke thing, he said. The reason you have reserves is for a rainy day like this. The rainy day came and guess what? We werent prepared. Commission Chairman Joe Meek and Commissioner Rebecca Bays noted the county has one of the lowest tax rates and spending per person in the state. Some of the comments here have been insulting to this board, Meek said. He said the issue is the Progress tax situation, not the countys budget process. On the school board side, board members agreed that the Duke tax issue has placed them in a difficult situation. However, according to Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel, the circumstances are different. District officials have appealed to the state for more funding, and Himmel said the state may supplement all but $2.5 million of the loss from the Progress tax payment. The state oversees nearly all the school districts millage, and bases state funding on the local tax base. A drop in the tax base would increase state funding. With the potential of having its net Duke tax loss reduced from $8.1 million to about $2.6 million, school board member Pat Deutschman suggested the district pay less for litigation than the county. Board members agreed to the $175,000 for six months and then to address the equalization issue later. School board member Thomas Kennedy said he understood Deutschmans logic. However, Kennedy said, students utilize many county programs that could be impacted by the Duke tax shortfall. I feel an obligation to them, Kennedy said. Board member Linda Powers agreed. We are in a partnership, she said. Both boards agreed to look at the funding amounts again in six months.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. Special to the ChronicleMore than 60,000 volunteers across the country will be counting birds from Dec. 14, 2012, to Jan. 5, 2013. Locally, on Jan. 4, 2013, birders from the Citrus County Audubon Society and volunteer citizen scientists will be part of the regional Binocular Brigade, many rising before dawn to participate in the worlds longest-running wildlife census, begun in 1900. The 113th CBC is expected to be larger than ever, expanding its geographical coverage and accumulating information about the winter distributions of various birds. Today, volunteers from all 50 states, every Canadian province, parts of Central and South America, Bermuda, the West Indies, and Pacific Islands count and record every individual bird and bird species seen in a specified area. This is not just about counting birds, said Gary Langham, Audubons chief scientist. Data from the Audubon Christmas bird count are at the heart of hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies and inform decisions by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Department of the Interior, and the EPA. Because birds are early indicators of environmental threats to habitats we share, this is a vital survey of North America and, increasingly, the Western Hemisphere. CBC revealed the dramatic impact climate change is already having on birds, and a disturbing decline in common birds, including the northern bobwhite quail. The many decades of data not only help identify birds in need of conservation action it also reveals success stories. CBC helped document the comeback of the Bald Eagle and significant increases in waterfowl populations, both the result of conservation efforts. Last years count shattered records. A total of 2,248 counts and 63,227 people tallied over 60 million birds. The journal Nature wrote an editorial citing CBC as a model for citizen science. The count began in 1900 when Dr. Frank Chapman, founder of Bird-Lore (which evolved into Audubon magazine) suggested an alternative to the holiday side hunt, in which teams competed to see who could shoot the most small game, including birds. Chapman proposed that people count birds instead.

Associated PressTAMPA Manuel Pardo was a decorated Florida police officer before he was fired for lying and turned to life as a vigilante, slaying nine people during a three-month crime spree. Almost 27 years later, Pardo, 56, is scheduled to be executed Tuesday night. U.S. Judge Timothy Corrigan denied Pardos request for a stay on Monday. Most of Pardos victims were involved with drugs, officials said, and Pardo contended that he was doing the world a favor by killing them. I am a soldier, I accomplished my mission and I humbly ask you to give me the glory of ending my life and not send me to spend the rest of my days in state prison, the then31-year-old Pardo told jurors at his 1988 trial. Pardos attorneys are trying to block his execution, arguing in federal appeals that he is mentally ill, something his trial attorney believed more than two decades ago. I think that anyone who would get up and ask a jury sentence him to death is insane, lawyer Ronald Guralnick said recently. Regino Musa, the brother of one of Pardos victims, said its difficult to grasp that the execution will finally happen. He and his elderly mother plan to attend. Its about time. Its been so long, you just want to get it over with, said Musa, whose sister, Sara Musa, was killed by Pardo. I still have nightmares and I dont have words to describe it. I cant believe that its happening. Pardo, a former Boy Scout and Navy veteran, began his law enforcement career in the 1970s with the Florida Highway Patrol, graduating at the top of his class at the academy. But he was fired from that agency in 1979 for falsifying traffic tickets. He was soon hired by the police department in Sweetwater, a small city in Miami-Dade County. In 1981, Pardo was one of four Sweetwater officers charged with brutality, but the cases were dismissed. In 1982, The Miami Heraldreported Pardo saved a 2-month-old boys life by reviving him with CPR. Another story, written by famed South Florida columnist and novelist Carl Hiassen, noted that Pardo arrested a man for stealing valuable parrots and cockatoos to use as live sacrifices for a Santeria ritual. Former policeman set to die Ex-officer Pardo killed nine people PATFAHERTY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER There are no points for good form in Last Man Standing. Instead, contestants use whatever means they conjure up within the rules to stay awake and avoid disqualification. And after 50 hours, some of the contestants were starting to stink; others stumbled a little or spoke with a slow slur. By noon Monday, 11 remained 10 men and a woman with sunburned faces and droopy eyes. They were encouraged by a small crowd of family members, friends, former contestants and passersby. It started at 10 a.m. Saturday, on a taped-off patch of asphalt in the rear parking lot of the Crystal River Mall. Forty-seven standers had started, including 14 women. Others had entered and didnt show. There is a $5,000 winnertake-all purse for the last person standing. Contestants get a five-minute bathroom break every eight hours and can be supplied with food by supporters. They can also smoke and have their cell phones charged. Within the rules they can squat, hop, jog in place, pace or exercise as long as only their feet rest on the ground. They cannot leave the confined area and bathroom breaks in the portable toilets are strictly timed. Debbie Miller is the monitor, a perfect role for a woman who spent 21 years with the state prison system. Nothing escapes her eyes. This is our core group, she said. Quite a few of them packed it in, the rest of them got disqualified. The majority just said I cant handle it. She recalled one man who dropped out due to swollen legs, another who had been on dialysis. Then there was the 61-year-old woman who stayed chipper but did not have the stamina and dropped out late Sunday evening. Miller thought the Citrus Kia-sponsored event could end Monday evening, but several of the remaining contestants were not so sure and warned supporters to expect another day. Im holding up all right, Inverness resident Heath Hounshell said. I pretty well know who the competition is. The 33-year-old estimated the event would run through Wednesday and had support from confident friends. I give everyone who came here credit, Miller said. The ones left are in high spirits. She said the next event is planned for January in Ocala.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com. PAT FAHERTY/ChronicleLast Man Standing contestant Heath Hounshell of Inverness was one of the final 11 still standing Monday afternoon. The winner-take-all event has a prize of $5,000. Contestants dwindle in Last Man Standing Associated PressMIAMI A state welfare worker testified Monday that the caretaker of missing foster child Rilya Wilson claimed false family ties to the girl and a younger sibling in order to qualify for state aid, which continued to flow for over a year after authorities believe Rilya was killed. Diana Ramirez Romero, a Department of Children and Families employee who handles economic assistance, testified that 66-year-old Geralyn Graham said she was the grandmother of Rilya and a younger sister, Rodericka, and both girls lived with her. Ramirez Romero said that enabled Graham who used the name Geralyn Smith in their meetings to get cash assistance and food stamps. Graham is not related to the girls and was not even their legal custodian. Her live-in companion, Pamela Graham, was their official caretaker at the time. Geralyn Graham faces life in prison if convicted of killing Rilya. The girl disappeared in late 2000 and her body has never been found. Graham insists she is innocent and has claimed an unknown DCF worker took the girl for a mental evaluation and never returned her. The case shook up Floridas child welfare system, spurring development of a new child tracking system and other key changes in state laws. An older sister of Rilyas, Brandy Sims, attended trial for the first time Monday. Now 18, Sims said she didnt know Rilya but felt compelled to come to court on her behalf. I just wanted to be here for justice for my sister, said Sims, who was accompanied by her adoptive parents and U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla. The congresswoman is not related to Rilya but has been deeply involved in the case and sponsored child welfare reform laws while in the state Legislature. On the witness stand, Ramirez Romero said Graham first applied for state benefits in February 2001 for Rilya and her younger sister. She periodically visited the welfare office several additional times until March 2002, a month before DCF officials finally realized that Rilya was missing. Ramirez Romero said Graham always brought the younger sister with her to those meetings, and on one occasion she asked Graham why Rilya was never there. She told me it was too hard to handle two babies in the interview, Ramirez Romero testified. Did she ever say, DCF took Rilya? asked prosecutor Sally Weintraub. No, Ramirez Romero replied. Earlier Monday, former DCF administrator Barbara Toledo said she and her co-workers began to believe something terrible had happened when they were unable to verify Grahams story about what happened to Rilya.

C10 Surplus Property . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . C10 address issues and recommendations in a regional skills gap assessment delivered last week to its board of directors. That assessment targeted manufacturing, health care, information technology, business and financial services and transportation, distribution and logistics. Seifert said the EDC effort is compatible with what Workforce is doing. And he said the Tampa Bay Regional Partnership, which includes Citrus County, is also addressing the problem. The issue is that weve got 6,000 people unemployed and between 500 and 600 job openings and in some cases these skills dont exist, he said, citing electronics and software as two of the affected local industries. Workforce Connection CEO Rusty Skinner said the assessment quantifies what regional leaders in workforce development, economic development and education had already suspected that a skills gap exists but could not adequately address without specifics. According to the report, employers in key industries believe applicants lack basic academic and soft skills as well as experience and that those applying for manufacturing and healthcare jobs lack critical industry skills. When we say there is a skills gap, were not saying that applicants are unskilled, Skinner said. The issue is, do their skills match whats needed to compete in our current and emerging job market? The answer, at least in some targeted industry sectors, is no. Now we have to focus on the specific skills and skill areas that are needed. Levy sheriffs office investigating homicide Special to the ChronicleThe Levy County Sheriffs Office is investigating a homicide after George Hamilton Pierce, 51, was found dead inside his residence on Friday.

Only now has an agreement been approached. If the deal goes through, both nonprofits and all the clients they serve should benefit. Pearson said Toto would move her food distribution work to the Catholic Charities Outreach Center at 9020 W. Atlas Drive, which is in an industrial park west of U.S. 19 on the north side of Homosassa. But Toto will need to build a shed for food storage and a forklift truck. The shed will cost about $13,000. The Homosassa Civic Club has agreed to finance $8,000, Pearson said. We have a private donor whos going to finance $3,000. And Commissioner Kenney, because he has great relationships out in the community, was able to get a donation from Village Toyota Cadillac of $2,000 and I think we have this almost settled. We just need Ken Frink to make sure the permits go through. I think its going to work out real well. Pearson said civic club leaders would be pleased when the recommendation to offer it the firehouse goes before the board at a future meeting, if an agreement is reached. They will be able to turn that firehouse into an activity center for children and Diane Toto has a much better place to do her food drive. If you havent been out to Atlas Drive, its awesome, nobodys around there. Shes going to be able to serve a lot of people. So, mission accomplished, Commissioner Kenney. Thank you. Kenney said he appreciated everyones effort. Commission Chairman Joe Meek said: This was a big job. A few months ago, it was dividing the community down there. You made it work. Good job. Kenney joked: I got the $2,000 but it cost me $35,000 because I had to buy another vehicle. Commissioner Rebecca Bays responded, A small price to pay. The outreach center came into being just over a year ago when the Knights of Columbus 6954 disbanded and donated its building reported to be worth more than $300,000 to Catholic Charities. We partnered with Catholic Charities, Toto said. Although the civic club has allowed us to use their office for all this time, we really need our own facilities. Toto said at least 15 agencies would be housed at the outreach center, including a free dental agency that was an exciting new service. Toto said dental equipment has been donated by a county dentist who retired and 21 of the countys 54 dentists have agreed to treat patients. Also, since the county put the (expanded) bus route together, all our clients without transportation can now reach us, Toto said. Since the beginning of this month, Citrus County Transit started expanded routes all over the county with places to transfer so that residents as far away as Dunnellon and Floral City could ride the bus to the outreach center in Atlas Drive, where they soon will be offered a number of services, including a medical clinic in addition to dental care, according to Toto. Its going to be like onestop shopping for all our needy clients, Toto said. This has been something we have been dreaming about for quite some time because there is nothing on this side of the county. Toto said she wished the civic club good luck with its learning center. Bitter said the civic club would be thrilled with the proposed agreement. It will consolidate that entire area under the civic club, Bitter said. We have folks who are already lined up to help us with remodeling and design. Were going to have a town meeting.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated last month that Obamas plan to increase taxes only on top earners would reduce economic growth by 0.1 percent of Gross Domestic Product next year, or about $16 billion. That translates into about 200,000 fewer jobs. By comparison, letting all the tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 expire would reduce economic growth by 1.4 percent of GDP, resulting in about 1.8 million fewer jobs, the CBO said. Its a very tiny portion of the cliff impact and it very much raises revenues and it does so in a fair way, Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan, senior Democrat on the taxwriting House Ways and Means Committee, said of Obamas proposal. It will not stifle economic growth in any significant way. Most of the expiring tax cuts were first enacted under former President George W. Bush and extended by Obama in 2010. This time around, Obama says he is determined to let the tax cuts expire on income above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for married couples. He wants to extend the Bush tax cuts for people making less. House Speaker John Boehner and other Republicans have said they are open to more tax revenue through reducing or eliminating tax breaks. But Boehner opposes Obamas proposal to increase tax rates on high earners. Raising taxes on small businesses instead of taking a balanced approach that also cuts spending is wrong, Boehner, said recently. Its only going to make it harder for our economy to grow. And if our economy doesnt grow, Americans dont get new jobs and the debt problem that we have will continue to threaten our childrens future. Republicans often relate the tax increases to small businesses because 94 percent of Americas businesses are structured so that profits go directly to partners or shareholders who report the income on their individual tax returns. Its a way for business owners to avoid paying taxes twice on the same income once at the corporate level and again when profits are distributed as dividends. Under Obamas plan, the 33 percent tax rate would rise to 36 percent on taxable income above $231,000 for a married couple filing jointly. The top tax rate would increase from 35 percent to 39.6 percent on taxable income above $397,000. Obamas plan also would phase out the personal exemption and gradually reduce itemized deductions for individuals making more than $200,000 and married couples making more than $250,000. The top capital gains tax rate would rise from 15 percent to 20 percent. Qualified dividends, which are now taxed at a top rate of 15 percent, would be taxed as ordinary income for top earners, or at a top rate of 39.6 percent. That, some business owners complain, would leave them with less money to hire new workers or keep the ones they have.

Violent acts of terrorism will also be less frequent as the U.S. drawdown in troops from Iraq and Afghanistan robs extremist ideologies of a rallying cry to spur attacks. But that will likely be replaced by acts like cyberterrorism, the studys authors say. In countries where there are declining birth rates and an aging population like the U.S., economic growth may slow. Aging countries will face an uphill battle in maintaining living standards, Kojm said. So too will China, because its median age will be higher than the U.S. by 2030. The rising populations of disenfranchised youth in places like Nigeria and Pakistan may lead to conflict over water and food, with nearly half of the worlds population ... experiencing severe water stress, the report said. That instability could lead to conflict and contribute to global economic collapse, especially if combined with rapid climate change, the authors warn.

The ruling affects a federal-state program that covers nearly 60 million low-income and severely disabled people, caught in a tug-of-war between Republican governors and the Democratic administration. President Barack Obamas health care law expanded Medicaid to cover people up to 138 percent of the federal poverty line, or about $15,400 for an individual. The change mainly affects low-income adults without children at home, as well as low-income parents who cant get coverage under current Medicaid rules. Under the law, the federal government will cover 100 percent of the cost of the first three years of the expansion, gradually phasing down to a 90 percent share still a far more generous match than states have traditionally received. The expansion, scheduled for 2014, is expected to provide coverage to about half the 30 million people uninsured people who will benefit from the law. But some governors said Medicaid was already straining their state budgets to a breaking point, and the Supreme Court in June gave states the right to opt out of the expansion. Since the court decision, Republican governors have been asking if they can do a partial expansion. The administrations ruling puts the ball back in the states court. Administration officials said states can expand Medicaid part way, but wouldnt get the three years of full federal funding provided under the law. The law contemplated that every Americanwould have a way to get health insurance coverage, Medicaid administrator Cindy Mann said. Its very significant federal support, unlike any other federal support provided to any other coverage initiative. We are going to remain true to that intent of Congress and not waive that provision, she added. Most states are still pondering their decision. Twelve have said theyll turn down the expansion, although legislators are still debating the issue in some cases. Another 14 states have said theyll accept it. Theres no deadline for states to decide, and they can try the expansion and later cancel it if it doesnt work out. Two nonpartisan groups, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Urban Institute, said in a recent report that states can expect to receive $9 in federal funds for every $1 they spend on the expansion. Also on Monday, the Obama administration granted conditional approval to six states to set up new insurance markets called exchanges. Under the law, the exchanges will serve as a one-stop shop for consumers, steering middle-class people to subsidized private coverage and low-income people to Medicaid. Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Oregon, and Washington received approval. Feds rule on health care laws Medicaid expansion Report: Asian economies will surpass United States, Europe

Dorice Dee Dee Moore showed no emotion as a jury foreman read the verdict. Judge Emmett Battles sentenced her to an additional minimum mandatory 25 years for using a gun in the commission of a felony. Moore has 30 days to appeal. I can sleep good at night because I know I had done the very best job, said Defense attorney Byron Hileman. I feel sad for the victim. I feel sad for their families. I feel sad for the defendant because these types of cases are no-win situations. Jurors deliberated for more than three hours before finding Moore guilty of the first-degree murder charge prosecutors had lodged against her in the death of Abraham Shakespeare, who won millions in 2006. Shakespeares mother was in the courtroom, but showed no emotion. She got every bit of his money, said Assistant State Attorney Jay Pruner in closing arguments. He found out about it and threatened to kill her. She killed him first. Hileman argued that there were other potential suspects whom prosecutors refused to consider. There were a lot of people who owed Mr. Shakespeare a lot of money. One guy owed him a million dollars, he said during his closing arguments. The police focused on Dee Dee Moore and they didnt even consider other people. Pruner could not be reached for comment immediately. Battles instructed the jury that it could convict the 40-year-old Moore of a lesser charge. Following the verdict, he called Moore the most manipulative person he had ever seen, describing her as cold, calculating and cruel. Prosecutors built much of their case from confidential informants statements and financial records. Moore was briefly banned from the Tampa courtroom Monday over concerns that she may have threatened jurors. She was back a short time later for closing arguments, but said she did not want to take the stand in order to protect her family. At times, the defendant closed her eyes and averted her face from the jury as prosecutors played audio recordings made by an undercover officer posing as a criminal who would take the fall for Shakespeares murder. Prosecutors said Moore befriended Shakespeare in late 2008, claiming she was writing a book about how people were taking advantage of him. They claimed Moore later became his financial adviser, eventually controlling every asset he had left, including an expensive home, the debt owed to him and a $1.5 million annuity. She ultimately swindled Shakespeare out of his dwindling fortune, then shot him and buried his body under a concrete slab in her backyard, Pruner said. In opening statements, Moores attorney told the jury that his client was trying to help protect Shakespeares assets from a pending child-support case when he was killed by drug dealers who havent been caught. Former inmate Rose Condora, who was locked up with Moore, said she visits her friend every night at the jail. Shes not what people think she is. She did not kill that man, Condora told reporters during a break in the trial. Woman found guilty of murder in lottery death Dorice Mooresentenced to life in prison. Gas drilling can be made cleaner Associated PressPITTSBURGH In the Colorado mountains, a spike in air pollution has been linked to a boom in oil and gas drilling. A thousand miles away on the plains of north Texas, theres a drilling boom, too, but some air pollution levels have declined. Opponents of drilling point to Colorado and say its dangerous. Companies point to Texas and say drilling is safe. The answer appears to be that drilling can be safe or it can be dangerous. Industry practices, enforcement, geography and even snow cover can minimize or magnify air pollution problems. Its like a vehicle. Some cars drip oil, said Russell Schnell, deputy director of the federal Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo. You have wells that are absolutely tight. And you have other places where a valve gives out, and you have huge leaks. The good news, nearly all sides agree, is that the technology exists to control methane gas leaks and other air pollution associated with drilling. The bad news is that the industry is booming so rapidly that some companies and some regulators cant seem to get ahead of the problems, which could ultimately cost billions of dollars to remedy. The worries about what drilling does to the air are both global and local, with scientists concerned about the effects on climate change as well as the possible health consequences from breathing smog, soot and other pollutants. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has made it possible to tap into deep reserves of oil and gas but has also raised concerns about pollution. The industry and many federal and state officials say the practice is safe when done properly, but environmental groups and some scientists say there hasnt been enough research. Some environmentalists say if leaks and pollution can be minimized, the boom has benefits, since gas burns much cleaner than coal, emitting half the carbon dioxide. Al Gore told The Associated Press that its not irresponsible to look at gas as a short-term substitute for coal-fired electricity. But Gore added that the main component of gas, methane, is a more potent heat-trapping greenhouse gas than CO2. That means that if large quantities leak, the advantage over coal disappears, the former vice president said. Associated PressA combine cuts durum near an oil well on Aug. 19, 2008, in Tioga, N.D. The worries about what drilling does to the air are both global and local, with scientists concerned about the effects on climate change as well as the possible health consequences from breathing smog, soot and other pollutants.

Govt investigating phone app makersThe government is investigating whether software companies that make cellphone apps have violated the privacy rights of children by quietly collecting personal information from phones and sharing it with advertisers and data brokers, the Federal Trade Commission said Monday. Such apps can capture a childs physical location, phone numbers of their friends and more. The FTC described the marketplace for mobile applications dominated by online stores operated by Apple and Google as a digital danger zone with inadequate oversight. In a report by the FTCs own experts, it said the industry has grown rapidly but failed to ensure that the privacy of young consumers is adequately protected. The FTC did not say which or how many companies it was investigating.Fannie, Freddie execs earned $200KA government report finds median pay for nearly 2,000 senior managers at government-controlled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac exceeded $200,000 last year. The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees the two mortgage giants, also did an inadequate job monitoring pay, according to the report released Monday from the inspector general for the FHFA. Those managers represent nearly 17 percent of the roughly 11,900 total employees at the two bailed-out companies. Compensation for senior managers at the companies cost about $455 million in 2011, according to the report. Taxpayers so far have paid roughly $170 billion to rescue Fannie and Freddie, which suffered huge losses from risky mortgages during the 2008 financial crisis.SKorea volunteers fight pornographyMoon Tae-Hwa stared at his computer, dizzy and nauseous from the hours of porn hes viewed online while his wife and children slept. He feels no shame only a righteous sense of mission. Moon is among the most successful members of the Nuri Cops (roughly net cops), a squad of nearly 800 volunteers who help government censors by patrolling the Internet for pornography in their spare time. Unlike most developed nations, pornography is illegal in South Korea, though it remains easy for its tech-savvy population to find. More than 90 percent of South Koreas homes have high-speed Internet access, and more than 30 million of its 50 million people own smartphones.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2012 A9 Advance Capital I: Balanc p 17.07+.02 RetInc 9.01+.01 Alger Funds B: SmCapGr 6.96+.04 AllianceBern A: GblRisk p 17.78-.01 GlbThGrA p 64.48+.63 HighIncoA p 9.47+.01 SmCpGrA 38.11+.13 AllianceBern Adv: LgCpGrAd 30.36+.02 AllianceBern B: GlbThGrB t 55.17+.54 GrowthB t 27.26-.02 SCpGrB t 30.31+.10 AllianceBern C: SCpGrC t 30.49+.11 Allianz Fds Instl: NFJDvVl 12.72+.02 SmCpVl 31.85+.13 Allianz Funds C: AGICGrthC 26.64+.03 Amer Beacon Insti: LgCapInst 21.86+.04 Amer Beacon Inv: LgCap Inv 20.69+.03 Amer Century Adv: EqGroA p 24.56+.05 EqIncA p 7.85...

Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks edged higher Monday on Wall Street after a strong sales report from McDonalds offset concerns about the surprise resignation of Italys prime minister. Investors also waited for developments in crucial U.S. budget talks. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 14.75 points to 13,169.88. The index traded within a narrow range of just 56 points throughout the day. The Standard and Poors 500 finished 0.48 point higher at 1,418.55. The Nasdaq composite ended up 8.92 points at 2,986.96. McDonalds rose 93 cents to $89.41. A key sales figure rose in November as U.S. customers bought more breakfast offerings and limited-time Cheddar Bacon Onion sandwiches. Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Palm Beach, Fla.-based Banyan Partners, said the companys strength was encouraging. McDonalds, one of the 30 stocks in the Dow, was trading as high as $100 at the beginning of 2012. The pickup in McDonalds sales, he said, gave investors something positive to focus on as Italys sudden political turmoil sent a jolt through European markets. Hewlett-Packard rose 36 cents to $14.16 and also helped push the Dow higher. The companys stock has been battered the past two months following a weak earnings forecast and a public spat with the founder of Autonomy, a company it acquired for $10 billion last year. Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, who has been credited with restoring confidence in the nations economy, announced that he would step down after former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconis party dropped its support for his government. Italian government bond yields, a critical measure of how much the country has to pay to borrow, jumped. Concern that the European debt crisis was enveloping Italy, one of the euro regions largest economies, helped stymie markets around the world earlier in the year. Investors were also following developments in budget talks in Washington. Tax increases and federal spending cuts start Jan. 1 unless a deal is reached to reduce the U.S. budget deficit. Economists say the measures, if implemented, could eventually push the economy back into recession.

The Treasury Department auctioned $32 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.09 percent, unchanged from last week. Another $28 billion in sixmonth bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.135 percent, down from 0.14 percent last week. The six-month rate was the lowest since these bills averaged 0.13 percent on Sept. 17. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the three-month price was $9,997.73 while a six-month bill sold for $9,993.18. That would equal an annualized rate of 0.091 percent for the three-month bills and 0.137 percent for the six-month bills. Separately, the Federal Reserve said Monday that the average yield for oneyear Treasury bills, a popular index for making changes in adjustable-rate mortgages, was unchanged at 0.18 percent last week, the same as the previous week.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2012 Costas wrongSo now Bob Costas is an expert on the Second Amendment and gun control? Like any other knee-jerk liberal dancing on the strings of his puppet master, Costas expresses outrage at the Constitution and says we need more gun laws, all because of the tragedy of the NFL football player who killed his girlfriend, then himself. This was a tragedy, no question about that, but would we have seen the grimfaced Costas chiding the American public if Joe Sixpack had committed these terrible crimes? No, like any other sleazy headline-hunting liberal, Costas is springboarding off this tragedy for his own popularity. Sorry Bob, anyone Ive talked with on this thinks you are a real jerk shame on you for using this tragedy to make yourself look good on air. Sagging popularity is a lame excuse for what you are trying to do. Costas said we need more gun laws huh? It is already against a whole bunch of laws to shoot someone and kill them, but Costas said we need more. How about enforcing the existing gun laws? It would have made no difference in this case. The NFL player would still have shot his girlfriend and himself. What new gun laws would have prevented this? Ah yes here is the hidden agenda total confiscation of all firearms in the USA. That is where the antiAmerican gun grabbers are going with this and we decent Americans cannot allow ourselves to be swayed by the emotional response we feel over the senseless loss of two lives. We cannot for a second believe that confiscation will prevent anything except our freedom. Once we are disarmed, we are no longer free. Bob Costas should stick to sports reporting, which he does passably well, and leave the welfare of the United States alone. If he and his tree-hugging liberal friends dont want guns, thats their decision but dont tell me I have to give up my guns because you need more face time on TV.Harry Cooper HernandoTreated wellI recently had a total knee replacement, spending three days in the hospital, which wasnt a good experience although my doctor and the surgical team were excellent. I decided to go to a rehab facility for my recovery and chose Diamond Ridge in Lecanto. I cant say enough from the time I arrived until discharge. The nursing and therapy staff were incredible they went above and beyond in the care they provided me. It was pretty close to having one-on-one care; their response time was blemish-free. Donna Carl Beverly Hills Are you old enough to remember those brilliant old Tareyton cigarette ads that ran in the 1960s and 1970s (or cigarette commercials at all)? For those readers who are not, the actor in this commercial would appear with a black eye, saying, Us Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch, implying that they would fight, or even take a punch, for a cause or to make a principled decision they believed in, like smoking Tareytons. Those commercials were popular in a turbulent political era, when not only popular politicians but the average American took principled and sometimes unpopular stands on either side of issues, like the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement. That commercial came back to me last Friday when I read that former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist had announced on Twitter that he had switched his registration to the Democratic Party. Suntanned Charlie switched parties, choosing to avoid the fight for moderation in the GOP and take that black eye on his perfect Adonis face. People had been expecting Crist to jump ship for quite a while. Yet his decision marked not only a new phase of a political career along a path of populist expedience in building his peculiar brand of conservative liberalism, a somewhat middle ground politically. It also illustrated a lack of that s fortitude to fight rather than switch. Some GOP moderates, including former Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter who switched parties after 30-plus years as a Republican to avoid a bloody primary fight, lost anyway in 2010. For a tuned-in politician, Crist has made some really bad decisions in the last few years. First, he didnt appoint himself to the U.S. Senate seat Mel Martinez vacated. Then, he decided he wanted to be a Senator after all instead of staying in the governors mansion. Finally, he wasnt up to the fight and decided not to take on Tea Party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio as a Republican. Crist is a truly gifted politician yet somewhat a political enigma. Hes polished and enormously attractive when in front of a lens but also likable to the common man and woman. No one works a room better than Charlie Crist when campaigning, whether for himself or for another candidate. Yet his detractors say he has no true principles, that he will take a stand on an issue only after consulting his pollster first. And now, worse, he is a traitor, a dubious politician who has proven in his abandonment of the Republican Party that he is entirely out for himself, a 21st century Benedict Arnold. And as governor, he ran the state well, his term, in fact, marked by a number of righteous decisions that ran against his partys wishes and his political future including keeping early voting polls open later during the 2008 election and vetoing a bill eliminating tenure for Florida teachers. Crists biggest mistake as a Republican leader was embracing too enthusiastically both the Obama Stimulus package and the president himself when the Wall Street meltdown occurred. His actions at the time were basically no different than what New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did recently in working together with President Obama as storms battered his state. Both governors, as moderate Republicans, correctly recognized that in times of crisis, they must cast politics aside and take the appropriate action to protect the interests of citizens. The difference is that Christie, while taking the black eye from GOP loyalists for his Obama embrace, did not continue a love affair with the president. He turned around and quickly vetoed legislation establishing a state-run health insurance exchange, blaming the Obama administration for not providing the answers he said he needed to make a fiscally sound decision on the presidents health care law. Christie is the same moderate Republican he was before Hurricane Sandy and is looking pretty both for re-election and as a possible presidential candidate in 2016. Crist, on the other hand, chose to continue to embrace Obama, ditch the moderate wing of the GOP and abandon moderate Republican principles. And he did all this in 2010, just when the socialconservative and Tea-Party surge led to initial, but not sustainable, voter support. Now, what remains to be seen is if Crists tortured political journey will continue if he decides to run for Governor as a Democrat and make a Specter of himself.Steven Kurlander is an attorney, communications strategist/writer and columnist for the Sun Sentinel and Florida Voices, and a blogger for the Huffington Post.

While the program is relatively new, initial results indicate it is successful. The previous fee for cat adoptions was $35, which basically covers the cost the shelter incurs in checking the animal for disease, neutering, vaccinating and microchipping. On Sept. 15, the county shelter began a six-month trial of free cat adoption where the only cost to the adoptee is a $5 license fee. The initial results show that for the period from Sept. 15 to Nov. 20, cat adoptions increased by 9 percent. The adoption program is an extension of the compromise between the commission and animal advocates who had promoted a no-kill animal shelter that the commission determined was an unrealistic goal. As part of the compromise, the commission approved a Strive for Life program that commits the county to a number of steps intended to reduce the number of animals that are euthanized. These steps include working with individuals and groups who want to see more pet adoptions, working with the feral cat trap, neuter and release program and continuing public education about the importance of spaying and neutering. However, some of these steps, such as spay/neuter programs will only produce results over the long run. The free cat adoption is an effort to immediately increase the number of adoptions, and it seems to be working. If the program continues to be successful, it should definitely be part of a long-term program. We commend Commissioner J.J. Kenney for recommending the free cat program, and employees and volunteers at the shelter for implementing it. While the results are positive, the free adoption program has costs. With a tight county budget, it is questionable if the county can afford to continue the free adoptions past the initial trial phase. This is where volunteers can step in to help make the program a continuing part of the animal shelter programs. We encourage individuals and organizations who want to limit the number of cats euthanized to donate time and money to support the program, and to work with the animal shelter to help secure the longterm funding and volunteer support needed to keep the program operating over the long term. THE ISSUE:Free cat adoption program shows results.OUR OPINION:Program deserves public support.

Questions abound Why is it such a shock that Duke Energy did what they did to Citrus County? Anyone paying attention to Dukes history of paying their tax bills should have expected this and prepared for it. What surprises me is the hysteria that is being expressed by some county leaders. Why didnt Geoff Greene know that this was coming? Did he have his head buried in the sand with his fingers crossed when he sent them that bill? If he had no idea that this was coming, or if he did know this was a possibility but did not tell the various county departments prior to their budget requests, he should resign immediately. Dukes tax bill history has been well publicized. It should have been setting off alarms at our tax appraisers office the second the deal to buy Progress Energy was finalized. I believe Geoff Greene failed in his duty to look out for the best interest of Citrus County and should resign. He will not of course, but hopefully at the next election well remember this fiasco. He allowed this money to be allocated on the assumption that it was a done deal. If he was a CFO instead of an elected official, Im sure he would be fired. Why should Duke feel any empathy for Citrus County? Why should they care? Duke isnt going to do whats right for us. They couldnt care less because they worship the bottomline. We arent people to them, we represent numbers only. They know they have us by the Adams apple and can drag this through the courts until we are on the verge of bankruptcy. Citrus County is the only county that has taxed the pollution control equipment at beyond their salvage value. The other nine counties in Florida where they have this equipment do not. In May of this year, Duke let it be known that they had a real problem with the tax assessment. Mr. Greene should have let it be known then that we might have a budget shortfall. This is a direct result of the monopolistic power that the utilities have enjoyed for decades. What can we do as customers to fight this? Take our business elsewhere? I have some thoughts on the PSC and the oversight they enjoy at our expense by the corporate-owned state Legislature. That is for another time. Sheriff Dawsy has implied that we are not safe because of this. School Superintendant Himmel has said cuts are coming. County commissioners say jobs and services will be cut. Is it because Duke isnt paying their bill, or because Geoff Greene didnt anticipate this possibility? Both? It is unfathomable that he did not see this coming. Folks, we are at a crossroads here and it is up to our elected officials to choose which road we will take. We cannot afford a long, protracted court fight because we most assuredly will go broke if it comes to that. Even if we were to win in court, the legal costs in the meantime would financially handcuff the county for years. This isnt a fight between the two biggest kids on the block. Its a fight between a multi-billion dollar corporation and a small rural county that realistically could be on the brink of financial Armageddon. We need to settle this ASAP and get on with county business. This will test the fortitude and intelligence of our elected officials. We are at their mercy and we have no recourse until the next elections. Scary isnt it?Mark Stoltz InvernessGreat pig roast Heritage Days in Floral City was an outstanding event again this year. Great weather and great food and fellowship at the TOO FAR Pig Roast! Thanks to everyone for their help, including County Commissioner Scott Adams and his wife Pam.Pat Brady InvernessFollow ADA rulesWith regards to the controversy over dogs in public: The ADA is quite specific about what is and what is not a service animal. I personally have asked our local Walmart to be more aggressive when it comes to screening service dogs in their store. The manager told me it is store policy to only ask does this dog offer you comfort? That is why people are sliding past the federal mandate that service dogs only are allowed into stores, restaurants, etc. I think I speak for most of the doggie people out there when I say that we are good with these laws but not when stores so blatantly disregard it. Now, let me say this there are a lot of disreputable people purporting themselves to be service dog trainers when in actuality all they do is send off information to be laminated and voila you have a service dog ... not! These dogs are highly trained for specific jobs for their partners with disabilities please, lets all work together to make this law work for those who really need it and those of you who carry your little dogs into stores illegally, please stop you are hurting the very people who need these dogs the most.Joanne Peters, CEO Courtroom Dogs For Kids Inc. HomosassaObstacles too high I have been pondering Scott Adams proposal at the Dec. 4 BOCC meeting to allow four-wheelers into state parks. I applaud his initiative, but I see this plan as full of problems. First is the liability issue; everybody would have to sign a waiver of liability. Children under a certain age would have to ride in a seat with a safety belt. There would have to be a driving age limit say anybody that has a valid state issued drivers license. There would be no booze, an enforced speed limit, no guns, no horseplay, no driving sideby-side and drivers must stay on established trails. The list goes on; not to mention the need for a full-time law enforcement officer on duty at all times there are riders in the park. Sorry Scott, this one doesnt pass the smell test.Lynn & Sandy Dostal HomosassaOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2012 A11 LETTERSto the Editor Time to recycleIm calling the Chronicle in reference to Recycle. You know, if Citrus County recycles, theres a lot of money to be made in recycling. They could really put that toward the budget. But in order to recycle, to get the people to recycle, they got to give them some type of kickback. So even if you take a couple of dollars off their taxes or off their water bill or something for recycling because they make lots of money in recycling. Its time to give a little bit back and youll get more back.Nutcracker fantasticThe performance of The Nutcracker at (Curtis) Peterson Auditorium Saturday was absolutely fantastic. We can be so proud that we have such talented teachers and students at the School of Dance Arts here in Citrus County. Thank you very much. ATV idea a bad oneGet real, Mr. Adams, regarding your suggestion to have all-terrain trails in our forests. First you say its cheap, then you reference the money they will spend on hotels and lunches. Which is it? Just one four-wheeler costs thousands of dollars. Besides, it appears forestry doesnt have the manpower to do anything about the mud trucks that tear up the forest roads and dig holes so deep, family users cant get through or around them if they dont have a mud truck of their own. Who is going to police the trails so they dont race? Do you have money in your budget for that? Oh yeah, and when Im hiking in the forest, I just cant wait to hear these four-wheelers tearing up and down the trails. You and I both know that the vast majority wont be family groups on a quiet outing. Im sure the hikers, birders, geocache enthusiasts, native plant societies and the horse people will have plenty to say about this lame-brained proposal.Neighborhood patrolsInteresting to read that the deputies are patrolling Sugarmill Woods for the past six months. I wish theyd come up and patrol Pine Ridge. And also, since when do detectives have time to do patrols around neighborhoods and keep the neighborhoods safe? I thought the deputies were responsible for that activity.Keep Citrus cleanHelping to keep Citrus County beautiful, why doesnt code enforcement and highway workers pick up all the illegal signs all over the county while driving around in their pickup trucks? Call the violators, penalize them. How about Keep Citrus County Beautiful and litter patrol violators picking up the signs for disposal? Illegal signs are not a beautiful sight in our county. Im a litter patrol volunteer and I do pick up the signs when I can. If we all pull together, we can clean this county up and stop these illegal signs.Great Christmas showWent to see The Nutcracker Suite the other day put on by the School of Arts and Dance here in Inverness. Just got one word to say: Fan-freaking-tastic!Thanks for free mealThank you, thank you, thank you to Applebees Restaurant for serving the veterans a free meal on Veterans Day. Thank you.

Protest Associated PressLinda Erspamer, a veteran nurse of more than 30 years at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Mich., stands Monday with a dozen other members of the Michigan Nurses Association on the state Capitol steps in Lansing, Mich., protesting rightto-work legislation. Organ izers said the gathering was meant to symbolize the silencing of unions that nurses said will happen should the legislation become law. Ex-LA official gets prison for child pornLOS ANGELES A former Los Angeles official who once blamed a spinal tumor for his obsession with child pornography was sentenced to seven years in federal prison Monday to be followed by a lifetime of supervision. Sixty-four-year-old Albert Abrams, white-haired and balding, addressed a judge at a hearing attended by his family and friends. He admitted he collected child pornography and distributed sexually explicit images. His lawyer said materials seized from his home covered almost 20 years during which he hid his activities from family members, including his wife of 38 years.Man shot dead near Central ParkNEW YORK A man walking down a street outside a school near Central Park was shot in the back of the head on Monday and lay mortally wounded in a pool of blood as his killer escaped with a getaway driver, police said. The shooting occurred around 2 p.m. outside the Saint Thomas Choir School, a small boarding school for young boys on a fairly quiet street between busy avenues teeming with tourists and shoppers. The gunman, wearing a dark coat with a dark hood and khaki pants, came up behind 31-year-old Brandon Lincoln Woodard of Los Angeles and fired what appeared to be a silver semi-automatic pistol, striking him once, police spokes man Paul Browne said. No motive had been revealed.Arm wrestler convicted in deathWORCESTER, Mass. A champion arm wrestler from Massachusetts has been convicted in the death of his wife, who jumped out of a window to escape him. Forty-one-year-old Allen Stilkey of Worcester was convicted Monday of manslaughter. His wife, Lisa, jumped from a second-floor window of their home in February during what authorities said was a violent argument. Prosecutors said Stilkey threatened to kill his wife first. They said he had recently taken out a $250,000 life insurance policy on her.

Syrian rebels continue advanceBEIRUT Rebels captured part of a sprawling Syrian army base outside the embattled northern city of Aleppo, tightening the oppositions grip on areas close to the Turkish border, activists said Monday. Once on the defensive, Syrias rebels have gained momentum in recent weeks with a number of tactical advances, seizing airbases near Damascus and Aleppo and putting President Bashar Assads forces on their heels. In an interview with Dubai TV, Syrias top military defector said Assads regime is over and advised the president to leave office and let the countrys people decide their own fate.Cuban dissidents denounce arrestsHAVANA Cuban dissidents accused authorities Monday of a wave of arrests to prevent them from gathering to mark International Human Rights Day. More than 100 government opponents were briefly detained and promptly sent back to their homes, human rights monitor Elizardo Sanchez said. The saving grace is that (the arrests) are of short duration, said Sanchez, who heads the Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation. A leader of the group known as the Ladies in White said they were rounded up Sunday when they held their weekly protest march outside a Havana church.Israel PM attacks double standardsJERUSALEM Israels prime minister on Monday accused the international community of deafening silence in response to recent vows by the head of the Hamas militant group to fight on until the Jewish state is destroyed, and appeared unmoved by the gathering storm of global condemnation of his governments plans to continue settling the West Bank. Speaking to foreign reporters, Netanyahu accused the international community of having double standards, condemning not-yet-built settlements in the West Bank while standing quiet during a historic visit to the Gaza Strip by Hamas exiled leader, Khaled Mashaal. Making his first trip to the Hamas-ruled territory over the weekend, Mashaal delivered a series of speeches to throngs of supporters vowing to wipe Israel off the map.NKorea readies rocket launchSEOUL, South Korea North Korea is pressing ahead with preparation for a longrange rocket launch after extending its liftoff window by another week until Dec. 29 because of technical problems. Its North Koreas second attempt this year, and the fifth since 1998, to launch a rocket that the United Nations, Washington, Seoul and others call a cover meant to test technology for missiles that could be used to strike the United States. They have warned North Korea to cancel the launch or face more sanctions. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON Your medical plan is facing an unexpected expense, so you probably are, too. Its a new, $63-per-head fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions under President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. The charge, buried in a recent regulation, works out to tens of millions of dollars for the largest companies, employers said. Most of that is likely to be passed on to workers. Employee benefits lawyer Chantel Sheaks calls it a sleeper issue with significant financial consequences, particularly for large employers. Especially at a time when we are facing economic uncertainty, (companies will) be hit with a multimilliondollar assessment without getting anything back for it, said Sheaks, a principal at Buck Consultants, a Xerox subsidiary. Based on figures provided in the regulation, employer and individual health plans covering an estimated 190 million Americans could owe the per-person fee. The Obama administration said it is a temporary assessment levied for three years starting in 2014, designed to raise $25 billion. It starts at $63 and then declines. Most of the money will go into a fund administered by the Health and Human Services Department. It will be used to cushion health insurance companies from the initial hard-to-predict costs of covering uninsured people with medical problems. Under the law, insurers will be forbidden from turning away the sick as of Jan. 1, 2014. The program is intended to help millions of Americans purchase affordable health insurance, reduce unreimbursed usage of hospital and other medical facilities by the uninsured and thereby lower medical expenses and premiums for all, the Obama administration says in the regulation. An accompanying media fact sheet issued Nov. 30 referred to contributions without detailing the total cost and scope of the program. Of the total pot, $5 billion will go directly to the U.S. Treasury, apparently to offset the cost of shoring up employer-sponsored coverage for early retirees. The $25 billion fee is part of a bigger package of taxes and fees to finance Obamas expansion of coverage to the uninsured. It all comes to about $700 billion over 10 years, and includes higher Medicare taxes effective this Jan. 1 on individuals making more than $200,000 per year or couples making more than $250,000. People above those threshold amounts also face an additional 3.8 percent tax on their investment income. Health law brings new fee Ready for its cargo Associated PressDORDRECHT, Netherlands Just as the first storms of winter roll in, Dutchman Johan Huibers has finished his 20-year quest to build a full-scale, functioning model of Noahs Ark an undertaking of, well, biblical proportions. Huibers, a Christian, used books 6-9 of Genesis as his inspiration, following the instructions God gives Noah down to the last cubit. Translating to modern measurements, Huibers came up with a vessel that works out to a whopping 427 feet long, 95 feet across and 75 feet high. Perhaps not big enough to fit every species on Earth, two by two, as described in the Bible, but plenty of space, for instance, for a pair elephants to dance a tango. Johans Ark towers across the flat Dutch landscape and is easily visible from a nearby highway where it lies moored in the city of Dordrecht, just south of Rotterdam. Gazing across the arks main hold, a huge space of stalls supported by a forest of pine trees, visitors gaze upon an array of stuffed and plastic animals, such as buffalo, zebra, gorillas, lions, tigers, bears, you name it. Elsewhere on the ark is a petting zoo with actual live animals that are less dangerous or easier to care for such as ponies, dogs, sheep, and rabbits and an impressive aviary of exotic birds. This boat its amazing, said Alfred Jongile, visiting from South Africa with his Dutch wife. For Huibers, a builder by trade, it all began with a nightmare he had in 1992, when the low-lying Netherlands was flooded, as it has been many times throughout its history. Huibers thinks new floods are possible, not least due to global warming. He cites a New Testament passage prophesying the cities of the coast shall tremble near the end of times. But hes not worried the whole Earth will ever be flooded again. In the Bible, the rainbow is Gods promise it wont be. I had a call from American television, he said, laughing. This has nothing to do with the end of the Mayan calendar, he said. He said his motivation is ultimately religious, though. He wants to make people think about what their purpose is on Earth. I want to make people question that so that they go looking for answers, and ultimately find salvation through God and eternal life, he said. Johans Ark also contains a restaurant on the topmost level and a movie theater capable of seating 50 people. Around the edges of each level of the craft are displays on ancient Middle Eastern history and dress, scenes from the life of Noah, and games for kids, including water pumps and a system of levers to lift bales of hay. Down below there is a honeycomb system of hatches, each opening into an area where food could be sealed in for long-term storage. There is an outdoor space near the stern with a dizzying series of stairwells. Walking around, Johan points out features such as the curvature of the upper deck, which he said would have been used to collect rainwater for drinking, as well as for letting animals such as horses out to exercise where they could run around. Associated PressA full-scale replica of Noahs Ark in seen Monday in Dordrecht, Netherlands. The Ark opened its doors after receiving permission to receive up to 3,000 visitors per day.

Associated PressLONDON The suburban stillness of the comfortable, two-story homes in west Londons Mortlake neighborhood is broken only by the roar of jets thundering overhead on the final approach to Heathrow Airport. Its a pleasant place, with easy connections into central London, generally free of crime and congestion. That changed early on a sunny Sunday morning in September when a man from Africa literally fell from the sky and landed with a loud thud onto the sidewalk of Portman Avenue, half a block from a convenience store, an upscale lingerie boutique and a shop selling Chinese herbal remedies. In the hours after the crumpled body was found, as early risers were getting up to walk their dogs, get the papers, or go to church, police thought the man was a murder victim. But it was soon determined he had been a stowaway who fell from a passenger plane when it lowered its landing gear directly above Portman Avenue. It was scary, there was a body on the street, and nobody knew at first that he had fallen from a plane, neighbor Stephanie Prudhomme said. There were police everywhere. The identity of the man remains a mystery three months later. He carried no identification, but police believe he may have been from Angola. They are asking the public to help identify the man, whose death has traumatized the neighborhood. Falling man leaves behind questions in London Unidentified man apparently fell from plane

The league wiped out all games through Dec. 30 in its latest round of cancellations. The cancellation of just two more weeks of the season, however, could perhaps signal hope of a deal to begin play in early January. Negotiations between the league and the players association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday the sides are trying to restart talks this week. Daly wrote in an email to The Associated Press on Monday that nothing had been completed regarding a meeting with the union.Source: Bounty ruling TuesdayA person familiar with the decision said former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue will rule Tuesday afternoon on the latest round of player appeals in the NFLs bounty probe, and that any potential punishment will be delayed by a week. The person said the delay is designed to give a federal judge in New Orleans the opportunity to rule on pending motions to throw out the suspensions and remove Tagliabue as the appointed arbitrator for these player appeals to the league. The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because no rulings have been announced.Gatti, Virgil Hill enter boxing hallSYRACUSE, N.Y. Arturo Thunder Gatti didnt live to see his finest day. Gatti, who won world championships in two different weight classes, heads the class of 2013 to be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. The honor, announced Monday, comes three years after his untimely death. A native of Calabria, Italy who was raised in Montreal, Gatti retired in 2007 with a record of 40-9 with 31 knockouts and was selected in his first year of eligibility. Gatti died three years ago in Brazil at age 37 under mysterious circumstances. Also selected for induction were: Virgil Quicksilver Hill, a five-time world champion who won a silver medal at the 1984 Olympics and defended his light heavyweight title 20 times over his two reigns; two-time light flyweight champion Myung-Woo Yuh of South Korea; lightweight Wesley Ramey and middleweight Jeff Smith in the old-timer (posthumous) category; 19th century Irish boxer Joe Coburn in the pioneer category; referee Mills Lane; ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr.; manager Arturo Cuyo Hernandez; cartoonist Ted Carroll; and journalist Colin Hart.Ravens fire OC Cameron after lossOWINGS MILLS, Md.

Cameron ran the teams offense since the start of the 2008 season, when current coach Jim Harbaugh replaced Brian Billick. From wire reports Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. When James Shields broke into the big leagues with Tampa Bay, the Rays were no better than the Kansas City Royals. They lost more than 100 games his first season, and fared little better the following year. But by his third season as a starter, the Rays had finally turned the corner, many of their prized prospects forming the nucleus of a team that upstaged AL East stalwarts Boston and the Yankees and advanced all the way to the World Series. Now, after a blockbuster deal that sent Shields and fellow righthander Wade Davis to the Royals late Sunday, the former All-Star pitcher believes everything is in place for Kansas City to replicate the Rays success. The Royals are definitely on the right track, Shields said Monday. They definitely remind me of our season going into our season in the Rays organization, and I think theres a good possibility we can step in that direction. Ive been there when weve lost 100 games before. Ive also won 96, 97 games before, and I think me and Wade bring a little of that to the table, knowing how to win and what it takes to win. The Royals havent known what thats like in years. Despite the matriculation of their best prospects to the big league club, the Royals still struggled to a 72-90 record and a third-place finish in the weak AL Central last season. It was their ninth consecutive losing season, and extended to 27 the number of years its been since the franchise last played in the postseason. The biggest reason for the lousy finish was a dearth of starting pitching, and thats something that general manager Dayton Moore has been aggressively trying to resolve this offseason. Along with acquiring Shields and Davis in arguably the biggest move his tenure, Moore also resigned Jeremy Guthrie to a $25 million, three-year deal and acquired Ervin Santana and his $12 million salary from the Los Angeles Angels. That means Kansas Citys top four starters next season werent on their opening day roster this past year. Our goal is to add as much pitching depth as we can as every organization tends to do, especially this time of year, said Moore. It looks like a good mix of people, I think, with Shield and Santana, Davis said. Associated PressWil Myers is pictured in 2012.

Referee Kenny Bayless tends to Pacquiao at right. After this, whats next for Manny Pacquiao? Associated PressMANILA, Philippines Manny Pacquiao has already achieved what most of his countrymen can only dream of: lifting himself out of wrenching poverty, securing a future for his children and becoming a hero to Filipinos the world over. Not content with just winning in the ring, Pacquiao also set about making his mark in politics. But after his stunning loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas on Saturday, the 34-year-old is facing some of the toughest questions of his remarkable 17-year career: does his future lay in boxing, politics, show business, religion, or perhaps theres even a new challenge on the horizon? Being the king of boxing, being the highest paid athlete in boxing ... it goes with the territory, boxing analyst Ed Tolentino said. For Pacquiao, the fame was too much to handle. There was just too many things on his plate other than boxing. The distraction was costly for Pacquiao, who trained for two months, compared to 4 1/2 for Marquez. During that time the Mexican bulked up and became more muscular to withstand the blows from Pacquiao that proved so damaging in their three previous encounters. Pacquiao grew up a survivor and fighter, overcoming poverty and cut-throat competition in a country where half of the population lives on $2 a day and 3,000 leave for jobs overseas every day.

The Texans (11-1) entered with the NFLs best record. The Patriots (9-3) had the AFCs third-best mark. But New England, with plenty of big-game experience with five Super Bowl appearances and three championships in the past 11 seasons, confused and dominated the Texans, who reached the playoffs last season for the first time since joining the NFL in 2002. Taking advantage of disorganization and poor coverage by the Texans, Brady threw scoring passes on his first three possessions 7 yards to Aaron Hernandez, 37 yards to Brandon Lloyd and 4 yards to Hernandez, for a 21-0 lead 4 minutes into the second quarter.

Lecanto will host Vanguard at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.Keppinger, Sox ink three-year dealCHICAGO Jeff Keppinger isnt sure where hell play with the White Sox. He is certain Chicago is the place for him, though. The White Sox announced a three-year, $12 million contract with Keppinger on Monday after reaching an agreement last week, adding a versatile infielder who could fill a hole at third base. I really like that city, he said on a conference call. I thought it would be a good fit for me. Keppinger is set to earn $3.5 million next season, $4 million in 2014 and $4.5 million in 2015 after hitting a career-high .325 in 115 games with Tampa Bay last season. He made 41 starts at third base, 23 at second, 21 at first and 19 as the designated hitter. The White Sox have an opening at third and theres a good chance hell wind up there even though he never discussed that with them. Kevin Youkilis finished last season at the position for Chicago and is now a free agent.Tigers agree to deal with C PenaDETROIT The Detroit Tigers have agreed to a one-year contract with catcher Brayan Pena. Pena had a .236 batting average with two homers and 25 RBIs in 68 games last season for the Kansas City Royals. He hit .320 in 50 at-bats with runners in scoring position last season. He has hit .248 with 14 homers and 98 RBIs over eight seasons with the Royals and Atlanta Braves. The 30-year-old Pena will back up Alex Avila.Mientkiewicz to manage MiracleMINNEAPOLIS Former Minnesota first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz has been chosen by the Twins to manage their Class A affiliate in the Florida State League, the Fort Myers Miracle. The Twins announced their minor-league assignments for 2013 on Monday. Mientkiewicz played for the Twins from 1998 to 2004. He was the hitting coach last season for the Ogden Raptors in the Pioneer League, a rookie-level farm club of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Jake Mauer, who managed the Miracle from 2010 to 2012, has been moved to Class A Cedar Rapids.MLB, StubHub renew ticket dealCHICAGO Major League Baseball Advanced Media and StubHub.com announced a new five-year deal Monday that continues the websites role as the official secondary ticket market for the sport while eliminating the cheap listings that had become an eyesore for some clubs. The minimum price for baseball tickets on StubHub in 2013 will be $6, a more appealing number for the league after some seats were listed for pocket change during the five-year deal that expired after this past season. The $6 ticket includes commissions and the delivery fee for the website, which previously charged customers at least $10.40 after they selected their seats. Under StubHubs new pricing model, customers will pay a $2.25 delivery fee per ticket up to $10. Thats compared to a flat $5.40 delivery fee before.From staff and wire reports work as a baker and a construction worker to earn money for his mother and siblings after his father left them. As a scrawny teenager, he was a stowaway on a ship that took him from his southern hometown of General Santos City to the capital, Manila, where he took up boxing while working as a laborer. After finding success in local bouts, Pacquiao began his international career in the late 1990s. In the next decade, he became a household name by clinching eight world titles in eight weight categories. At home, he was declared a hero, the peoples champ an inspiration to the legions of the poor, and the man the rich and powerful wanted to rub shoulders with. As the titles, honors and money started pouring in, so did distractions. Politicians, minor actors and an assortment of hangers-on formed his huge entourage. You only need a Ferris wheel and his training camp would have been a circus, Tolentino said. In a nation where celebrities, money and politics equal a winning formula, Pacquiao played his card by running for Congress in 2007, but lost. The most popular face in town, he turned to crooning his own songs. His picture endorsed countless products. Hes a regular on TV, and hosts his own show. Hes made a movie. Another passion is cock fighting, a traditional past time in the Philippines. He was Pacquiao Inc. Showbiz takes a lot of time, a lot of energy. You have to prepare for these shows, said boxing commentator Ronnie Nathanielsz. (Pacquiao) loses focus because he has so many things to worry about and attend to. Pacquiao was elected to Congress from his southern Sarangani province in 2010, and has announced he will run for re-election next year. Taking a cue from his political allies, he appears to be building a political organization, with his wife, Jinkee, running for vice governor, and younger brother, Rogelio, for congress in neighboring South Cotabato province. In the meantime, he promised to clean up his act: no more gambling, drinking and womanizing, and took up preaching the Bible. Some called it a public relations stunt for a budding politician, but Pacquiao insisted it was for real. To those who think that way, let us leave them be. I will pray for them. Even Jesus Christ, even after he performed miracles, no one believed him, what more for a sinner like me, he said, adding he did not want to be a pastor but share how the Lord changed my life. Then came the first blow: a controversial decision awarding his June fight to Timothy Bradley. Questions arose if Pacquiao was showing the wear of 17 years in the ring, and whether the distractions catching up with him. Saturdays loss to Marquez, whom he had beaten twice and drawn once, only made the question more urgent, although Pacquiao made no mention of a possible retirement. Among boxers, they dont have the word retirement in their dictionary. Its so hard to admit that all of sudden its over, especially for Pacquiao, Tolentino said. His demotion was from the penthouse to the doghouse, he added. I think really there has to be a lot of soul searching. ... He has to consult his family, his real entourage. NEXTContinued from Page B1 Associated PressLeBron James prepares to shoot over the Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith during the first half Monday in Miami. Associated PressMIAMI LeBron James scored 27 points, Dwyane Wade had 26 and the Miami Heat pulled away in the second half to beat the Atlanta Hawks 101-92. James (10-16) and Wade (11-13) made 21 of 29 shots for Miami, which shot 58 percent overall to improve to 10-1 at home this season. Chris Bosh had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Norris Cole scored 10 for the Heat. Josh Smith scored 22 points and Al Horford finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds for Atlanta, which briefly held the lead midway through the third quarter before the Heat got rolling and moved 1 1/2 games ahead of the Hawks in the Southeast Division. Atlanta is 0-2 against Miami this season and 1-7 since March 2011. A 17-4 run was the difference maker, turning a two-point deficit into an 11-point lead with 1:24 remaining in the third.Warriors 104, Bobcats 96CHARLOTTE, N.C. Stephen Curry put on a show for his hometown fans, finishing with 27 points, seven assists and seven rebounds to lead Golden State over Charlotte. Curry, who grew up in Charlotte and made a name for himself leading nearby Davidson College to the brink of the Final Four in 2008, shot 10 of 22 from the field and hit four 3-pointers. It was his eighth straight 20-point game, a career best.76ers 104, Pistons 97PHILADELPHIA Evan Turner had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Jrue Holiday scored 25 points to lead Philadelphia past Detroit. Thaddeus Young added 20 points and Spencer Hawes 15 for the Sixers. Greg Monroe missed a tip with less than a minute left that came back to haunt Detroit. Holiday sank a 19-footer for a 100-95 lead and the Sixers stretched the lead from the free-throw line.Spurs 134, Rockets 126 (OT)HOUSTON Gary Neal scored 29 points and Tony Parker had a tripledouble to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 134-126 overtime win against the Houston Rockets on Monday night. Parker had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists to complement Neals 7-of-10 performance from 3-point range. Jeremy Lin had his best game since joining the Rockets, scoring a career high-tying 38 points.Mavericks 119, Kings 96DALLAS O.J. Mayo scored 19 points and the Dallas Mavericks took control with 31-3 run in the first half to win their 17th straight regular-season home game against Sacramento with a 119-96 victory over the Kings on Monday night. Chris Kaman, playing on a sprained left ankle he suffered last week, scored 16 of his 18 points in the first half for Dallas. Miami stymies Atlanta once more, expanding division lead Associated PressTAMPA, Fla. The fading Tampa Bay Buccaneers talk about needing to make more plays. Coach Greg Schiano just wants his players to concentrate on doing their jobs at all times. The coach rejected the notion Monday that the Bucs (6-7) failed to protect a fourth-quarter lead for the fourth time this season because they did not make enough plays down the stretch of a last-second 23-21 loss to rookie quarterback Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles. Yes, Tampa Bay failed to make a potential game-saving interception, and Foles extended the winning drive with a pair of fourth-down conversions. But Schiano said there were also other factors that contributed to a defeat that dealt a blow to Tampa Bays chances of making the playoffs. Youll never hear that from me. ... I dont think thats the case, Schiano said of the recurring theme of players explanations for squandering an 11-point lead in the final four minutes. I think you have to do your job, and you have to get 11 guys doing their job consistently. ... I think when you focus on making plays, thats exactly when you dont make plays, Schiano added. Focus on doing your job and plays come to you, the game comes to you. Thats what we believe around here. The Bucs were left wondering how Philadelphia was able to end an eightgame losing streak that was the Eagles longest skid since 1970. We did a lot of things that you normally would look at and say that you win the game, but we didnt win the game, Schiano said. The Buccaneers outrushed the Eagles 136 yards to 29, forced the games only turnover and sacked Foles six times. Josh Freeman overcame a slow start to lead three scoring drives that turned a 10point halftime deficit into a 21-10 lead that Schiano felt his defense would be able to protect. It didnt happen, in part, because of what Schiano described as self-inflicted mistakes on both offense and defense. We committed too many penalties, some in crucial situations. Some could be argued, but that doesnt matter. If theyre called, they are, Schiano added. At the end of the game, we have some opportunities to makes the game be over, and we dont do it. Tampa Bay, which fell two games behind Seattle and one behind Washington, Dallas and Minnesota for the final NFC wild-card spot, also surrendered fourth-quarter leads in losses to the Redskins, New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons. Schiano: Do your job Bucs playoff hopes dim after wins squandered

Up 36-32, Reynolds took a steal the length of the court, drawing a foul and hitting a pair of free throws. Another steal from the junior guard led to a jumper by Hunter Roessier, then Reynolds drove the lane and converted on a nice doublepump score. After a free throw by the Buffalos Lane Munz (11 points, five rebounds), Reynolds found Robert Speakman down court as the Pirates easily broke the Villages full-court press, making it 44-33. The fourth quarter saw Crystal River continue to widen the gap, embarking on an 11-3 run from the start to open up a 20-point lead midway through the period. The Pirates had 19 fourthquarter points while clamping down on defense to limit the Villages to just 18 points for the entire second half. Reynolds took over the game in all aspects after the half, finishing with 25 points, 15 rebounds, five assists and four steals. And Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman has seen this before. It was like a repeat of the other night. He wanted the ball, and when he wants the ball, hes very tough to cover, said Feldman. He was drawing double teams, getting to the line, and he can create his own shot better than anyone else on the team. Reynolds went 11 for 20 from the line on the night. Feldman also noted how contagious of an offensive spark he was, as Damien Westfall (16 points, six rebounds) and other Pirate teammates came to life offensively in the second half. Were a second-half team. We come out, get (a) good (offensive) run, and play good defense, said Reynolds. And I just came out looking to score, and get the W. The Villages looked poised in the opening half to pose a challenge, running out to an 11-6 lead following a Lunz 3-pointer and driving score by Henry Liu. The teams were tied at 16 at the end of the first quarter, and the Pirates held a 30-29 halftime edge. In addition to the offensive outburst, the second half saw the Pirates clamp down defensively and on the boards, forcing 19 Buffalo turnovers and outrebounding the Villages 41-19 on the night. Matt Taylor contributed 12 points and six rebounds for Crystal River, while Roessier finished with eight points and six rebounds. The Pirates will visit Hernando tonight for a 7:30 start. Monday in a nondistrict matchup. Seven Rivers trailed for all but 2 minutes in the first half, but a 3-pointer by junior Adam Gage, whose 20 points and 14 rebounds led the game in both categories, lifted the Warriors to a 26-25 advantage with 35 seconds to go in the second period. The teams combined to score just five points in the first 6:20 of the third period before Gage and sophomore Cory Weiand (13 points, 10 rebounds) each dropped in 3-pointers to help their squad build a 10-point edge by the end of the quarter The lead proved crucial in helping the Warriors survive a creeping fourth-quarter rally by Masters (1-5) that included a pair of buckets by three different Eagle shooters. Masters guard Matt Richards made it a tough start for Seven Rivers (3-2) as he connected on three from beyond the arc in the first 4 minutes of play to help Masters to a 14-7 lead. But Warriors senior John Iwaniec (four steals) harassed Richards, who paced his Eagles with 17 points, limiting him to just two more field goals the rest of the game. We made an adjustment after the first timeout because Richards is a great shooter, Seven Rivers head coach Jim Ervin said. Instead of switching defenders on the screen, we left John Iwaniec on him and he did a great job. Cory (Weiand) and Adam (Gage) have stepped up all season for us, Ervin added. I had said in the preseason I hoped our team would be coming together around January after losing four starters from last season, but Im happy with how far weve already progressed since then. The Warriors went 20 for 32 on foul shots. Gage, who made four straight free throws in the waning minutes and had four steals in the game, noted his teammates success at the foul line while lamenting his own foul-shooting struggles early in the game. I need to work on that, Gage said of his free throws. We aim to be around 70 percent as a team, so I need to be right up there. Seven Rivers plays at home again tonight against Academy at the Lakes. Were getting much more solid as a team, and we need to come out (tonight) and play well, Gage said. PIRATESContinued from Page B1 WARRIORSContinued from Page B1 The Royals certainly mortgaged their future to put it together. Tampa Bays biggest prize in the six-player swap is undoubtedly outfielder Wil Myers, widely regarded as the top prospect in the minors. The 22-year-old hit .314 with 37 homers and 109 RBIs last season, and he starred during the All-Star Futures Game hosted by Kansas City, putting together a pair of hits and driving in three runs. Moore said he tried to keep Myers out of the deal, but he also understood that you have to give up something to get something, so he parted with one of the games top prospects. He also sent along righthander Jake Odorizzi, the Royals top pitching prospect, left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard to Tampa Bay. Kansas City also will receive another player or cash. When you get a chance to upgrade and get a pitcher the caliber of James Shields and Wade Davis, we felt it was the right thing for us to do for our team today and going forward, Moore said. The Royals have made a significant financial commitment to winning this season. Along with taking on Santanas hefty contract, the Royals will pay Shields $10.5 million this season while holding a club option of $12 million with a $1 million buyout for next season. Davis is due to make $2.8 million this season and $4.8 million in 2014, with the Royals holding options on the next three years. Shields said he relishes the opportunity to return to the role of franchise ace. It was the same role he had his first few years in Tampa Bay, before David Price and others blossomed, and a role in which he feels comfortable. Hes logged at least 200 innings six consecutive seasons, has 14 complete games over the past two years, and his 3.89 ERA for his career makes him the most effective starter in the Royals new-look rotation. Kansas City starters combined for a 5.01 ERA last season, fifth-worst in the big leagues. Starting pitching, I think thats where it starts, Shields said. What the Rays did the last couple years, its been about starting pitching and defense. Thats the key to success. Hopefully me and Wade can get the job done. TRADEContinued from Page B1 Associated PressWASHINGTON Longwood had this kind of night against No. 15 Georgetown: seven Lancers had multiple turnovers; seven Hoyas scored at least six points. It all meant an 89-53 victory for Georgetown Monday. Its a team effort in the wrong direction, Longwood coach Mike Gillian said. Otto Porter scored a career-high 22 points, added seven assists and four steals and returned after taking an apparent hit to the head during the second half. The point total for Georgetown (8-1) against Longwood (2-8) was much bigger than the Hoyas managed in two of their last three wins. They beat Tennessee 37-36 and Towson 46-40 around a 64-41 win over Texas. Jeylani Dublin led Longwood with 10 points. No. 15 Hoyas cruise onward

With time, they could become impressive. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Its important for you to establish your own agenda instead of letting associates set the agenda.

Even setting a good example could help. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if you think in small monetary terms, thats OK, because modest profits could quickly add up to a tidy sum. A good attitude could help you find bargains that others overlook.

Associated PressThis undated image released by TLC shows Alana Thompson from the reality series "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." The program follows a child beauty pageant participant and her family. Singer Jenni Rivera killed in air crash Associated PressLOS ANGELES Jenni Rivera launched her career hawking cassette recordings of her songs at flea markets, but a powerful voice, soulful singing style and frank discussion of personal troubles powered her to the heights of an industry, transforming her into the one of the biggest stars of the genre known as grupero. Her life was cut short at its peak on Sunday by an airplane crash in northern Mexico that also killed six friends and co-workers. The 43-year-old mother of five and grandmother of two became a symbol of resilience for millions of fans on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. Her fame grew as she branched out into acting, appearing in independent film, reality TV and the televised singing competition La Voz Mexico. Rivera sold more than 15 million copies of her 12 major-label albums and won a string of Latin music awards. Her shows filled both the Staples Center in Los Angeles and Mexicos National Auditorium, a feat few male singers in her industry achieved. Many of her songs dealt with themes of dignity in the face of heartbreak, and her shows were known for their festive atmosphere and her intimate interactions with her fans. She would fill song requests from fans who had suffered heartbreak and setbacks, and would often pull women and girls onto stage to personally tell them to keep moving forward. The plane, being flown by two pilots, was taking her and her publicist, Arturo Rivera, her makeup artist, Jacob Yebale, and two friends, one named Mario Macias and another who was identified as Gerardo, to the central Mexican city of Toluca after a Saturday night concert before thousands in the northern city of Monterrey. All were killed. She was nominated for Latin Grammys in 2008 and 2011. FRAZIERMOORE AP television writer NEW YORK What was TV like in 2012? As with every year, it was a mix of the ridiculous and the sublime, the sacred and the profane. A TV-centric political season provided many memorable moments (President Barack Obamas missing-in-action debate performance; Clint Eastwoods empty-chair duet). Excellence persevered with series such as HBOs Boardwalk Empire and Treme, AMCs Mad Men, Historys surprisingly splendid Hatfields & McCoys, ABCs promising new Nashville, CBS The Good Wife and, of course, AMCs The Walking Dead with its icky charm. Then there were stinkers like the best-forgotten ABC sitcom Work It, which, focusing on two guys who dress as women to get jobs, was mercifully axed after just two airings. ABCs Good Morning America finally managed to outfluff NBCs Today and stole the ratings crown. The Tonight Show with Jay Leno wore on. Bottom line: Its not easy to narrow down a Top 10 anything for TV. Still, once this years thousands of hours are assessed, 10 notable achievements emerge, for better or worse.Breaking Bad (AMC). Its notable not only for how twisted, funny and shocking it is, but also for how it keeps on upping the ante. This summers satisfying miniseason ended in a most unlikely fashion, hinting that Walter White (series star Bryan Cranston) might actually break free from his life of spiraling disaster and resurrect his happy home. But then, in the last scene, Walters drug-enforcementagent brother-in-law made the connection that had always eluded him: the drug lord hes been chasing all this time is Walter! Once again, the series never-broken promise was upheld. Next summers final eight episodes arent going to be pretty!Fox & Friends (Fox News Channel). We could easily salute shows that keep us laughing like The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, Saturday Night Live and Real Time with Bill Maher. But maybe we could more appropriately single out one obvious wellspring for those shows humor. Im referring, of course, to Fox & Friends. With their three-part harmony, co-hosts Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade offer up a unique brand of jovially partisan delivery. Theirs is a seamless, finish-oneanothers-sentence knack for issuing the network-designated messages as news.Girls (HBO). Lena Dunham this, Lena Dunham that. Blah, blah, blah. She, in her mid-20s, created, wrote, directed, produced and starred in a half-hour comedy series about 20-something adulthood, femininity and sexuality. She sparked adulation, conversation, arguments and green-eyed envy of her talent. Girls was a series that couldnt be ignored at least, by pop-culture cognoscenti. It will surely be welcomed back in January with even more attention, if possible (with always the threat of a backlash), as viewers resume arguing: Does the series measure up to all the hype?Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (TLC) and Killer Karaoke (truTV). Two new reality shows blazed new trails of idiocy. One capitalized on redneck stereotypes and a 6-year-old beauty pageant veteran. The other invited contestants to sing their hearts out while being zapped with electricity or dunked in a vat of snakes. In a TV universe swamped with reality shows, these two stood apart as groundbreaking, inspired and dismaying if for no other reason than they served as a reminder that each is merely a way station en route to the next extreme in outrageous crassness.Homeland (Showtime). In its second season, this series remained suspenseful, disturbing and riddled with surprises. It mined drama from possibly the most damaged pair of protagonists, opponents and star-crossed lovers in TV history. Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) was a prisoner of war in Afghanistan who had returned home a national hero and soon-to-be-elected U.S. Congressman and, covertly, a terrorist turncoat. Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) was a former CIA agent suffering from a bipolar disorder as well as emotional ties to the man she was obsessed with bringing down.Luck (HBO). This drama set at a California racetrack boasted the rich density of David Milchs writing and a kings ransom of a cast: Dustin Hoffman, Nick Nolte, Dennis Farina, Jill Hennessy and Richard Kind for starters. It explored a strange and fascinating world while capturing the horse races with breathtaking footage. But three horses died during production of the series. That sad fact, and another the show wasnt exactly a ratings blockbuster led to HBO canceling Luck after its first season.Smash (NBC). This NBC musical drama put a bright, sexy sheen on one of filmdoms most timeless tropes: Hey, kids, lets put on a show! Which Smash did, embedding songs and dance into the story of how a Broadway musical comes to life. Sure, Smash took knocks for unbelievable plotlines, cardboard characters and trite show tunes. It gave new life to the term hate-watch (that act of watching something solely to delight in its awfulness). So what? With a show-must-go-on defiance emblematic of Broadway, Smash never flagged in its unique charm and meticulous artistry.Sons of Anarchy (FX). Tough guys on motorcycles selling guns and drugs. Tough women keeping them in line, or trying. Rival gangs, corrupt cops and a club membership in turmoil. Jax (Charlie Hunnam), his mother, Gemma (Katey Sagal), and her husband, Clay (Ron Perlman), were the core of a series that, in its fifth season, raged wilder than ever. A family drama set in a hard-hitting workplace, Sons was bloodthirsty and brilliant like nothing else on TV. Donald Trump (all over the place). Never before has this list bestowed a personal commendation. But then, The Donald is an exceptional TV presence. Whether a game-show host (NBCs The Apprentice), a commentator-at-large (Fox News Channel and elsewhere), a beauty contest impresario (his Miss USA pageant, which is broadcast on NBC), a former almost-candidate for president, or a free-floating billionaire attention junkie, Trump leverages the media with enviable shrewdness. Exactly the nature of Trumps TV appeal has yet to be identified. Equally unexplained is why he always gets a pass from his media gatekeepers, no matter what he says or does. But why sweat the vagaries of stardom? Trump rules. Or if he doesnt, he will surely be the last to know it. Girls, Homeland, Smash among 2012s best

HEALTH& LIFE As many of my readers know, over the past several days I have had many questions thrown at me regarding a drug called tamoxifen. Tamoxifen is one of the most successful cancer drugs ever used in this country. For women with estrogen receptor-positive (ER-positive) breast cancer, it was the first drug widely used to help slow the progression of cancer, and in some cases lower the risk of getting breast cancer. For decades, we have recommended that women take the drug for five years, thinking that the benefit of the drug lasted five years but not beyond, and also concerned about a few possible long-term side effects that can occur with Tamoxifen for 10 years?

After an initial workup, a CT scan of his abdomen was ordered and it showed a large 18cm (7-inch) mass. This was and enlarged lymph node. The normal size of a lymph node is usually 1 cm. He also lost his appetite and so did not eat much. He also felt very weak. He was on a large dose of narcotics and still he was in significant pain. I saw him on an emergency basis and started a workup. He had a CT-guided biopsy of the mass at the hospital as outpatient. I also did a PET/CT scan, which showed enlarged lymphadenopathy. The biopsy See GANDHI/ Page C3 As we know, the fastest-growing portion of the United States population are those 65 years of age and older. Decreased birth rates and increasing life spans are the factors. It is commonly accepted that our older patients see certain doctors with more frequency, i.e. orthopedists, urologists and cardiologists, to name a few. As ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors, we, too, will see an increase in our senior adult patient population. In the next 10 to 20 years, baby boomers on whom we have done multiple tonsillectomies, adnoidectomies and ear surgeries will enter this age group. However, in the future, we will need to change our way of thinking and become more proficient in the diagnosis and treatment of head and neck problems, such as hearing loss, ringing of the ears, skin cancers and growths in the head and neck area. Since the 1960s, the number of people 65 and older has doubled to 33 million people. A century ago, seniors accounted for 4 percent of the U.S. population.

The holiday season is a joyful time, but stress from increased social pressures and demands on your time can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Holiday activities leave you less time for sleep, relaxation and regular exercise. Disruption of your normal routines can result in anxiety, sleep disturbances, headaches, loss of appetite and poor concentration. Several weeks of this pressure weaken your immune system, leaving you more susceptible to colds and flu. Your own expectations and the expectations of family members can also cause stress that affects your mental well-being. This year, aim for a happier, healthier holiday season. The best gift you can give your friends and family is genuine enjoyment of the time you spend together. Here are some tips for managing holiday stress: Plan ahead. Schedule specific times for activities such as baking, decorating and giftwrapping. Make a shopping list and plan your shopping so you make as few trips as possible. Shop early to avoid the crowds.

Joseph BennettNAVIGATING CANCER USDA to allow more meat, grains in school lunches Associated Press WASHINGTON The Agriculture Department is responding to criticism over new school lunch rules by allowing more grains and meat in kids meals. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told members of Congress in a recent letter the department will do away with daily and weekly maximums of meats and grains. Several lawmakers wrote the department after the new rules went into effect in September saying kids arent getting enough to eat. School administrators also complained, saying set maximums on grains and meats are too limiting as they try to plan daily meals. This flexibility is being provided to allow more time for the development of products that fit within the new standards while granting schools additional weekly menu planning options to help ensure that children receive a wholesome, nutritious meal every day of the week, Vilsack said in a letter to Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D. The new guidelines were intended to address increasing childhood obesity levels. They set limits on calories and salt and phase in whole grains. Schools must offer at least one vegetable or fruit per meal. The department also dictated how much of certain food groups could be served. While nutritionists and some parents have praised the new school lunch standards, others, including many conservative lawmakers, refer to them as government overreach. Yet many of those same lawmakers also have complained about hearing from constituents who say their kids are hungry at school. Though broader calorie limits are still in place, the rules tweak will allow school lunch planners to use as many grains and as much meat as they want. In comments to USDA, many had said grains shouldnt be limited because they are a part of so many meals, and that it was difficult to always find the right size of meat. The new tweak doesnt upset nutritionists who fought for the school lunch overhaul. Margo Wootan, a nutrition lobbyist for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, says the change is minor and the new guidance shows that USDA will work with school nutrition officials and others who have concerns. It takes time to work out the kinks, Wootan said. This should show Congress that they dont need to interfere legislatively. Congress has already interfered with the rules. Last year, after USDA first proposed the new guidelines, Congress prohibited USDA from limiting potatoes and French fries and allowed school lunchrooms to continue countingtomato paste on pizza as a vegetable. The school lunch rules apply to federally subsidized lunches served to low-income children. Those meals have always been subject to nutritional guidelines because they are partially paid for by the federal government, but the new rules put broader restrictions on what could be served as childhood obesity rates have skyrocketed. School kids can still buy additional foods in other parts of the lunchroom and the school. Congress two years ago directed USDA to regulate those foods as well, but the department has yet to issue those rules. Montana Sen. Jon Tester, a Democratic among the lawmakers who wrote to USDA about the rules, praised the move. Schools need flexibility to make sure kids get the nutrition they need to focus on their studies, he said.

C2TUESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Hello again and happy holidays! The weather is changing, the spirit of love is in the air, the decorations are in place and the aroma is spicy. I love the holiday season! I wish that we could bottle it up and release it throughout the year. All seems so wonderful; however, we tend to battle with the stress of deadlines, busy schedules and a lack of time. How do we embrace this season by accomplishing our lists while looking and feeling great? Here are some tips to express style! Shhh! No one will know that you just threw it together. What to wear: Its time to pull out the bling, accessories, hats, scarves and all of the fun things that are just waiting to complement your outfit. You can dress up a simple black dress with tights and boots to make a great ensemble. Accessorize that plain black with artsy or rare pieces. Accessories will set off any old outfit! Add a suit blazer to jeans, a sexy cameo with an overcoat, dresses with high belts or skinny jeans with boots all are very simple to create. When you are in a rush, convert business attire to eveningwear with a simple change of accessories, shoes and a flashy sweater. Remember that comfort is important, so look for the support pads that you insert into your shoes for added cushion. Hair: If you have fine hair and it is difficult to style, simply skip a day of shampooing so the natural oils and leftover product will make your hair feel thicker. Use a large-barrel curing iron, flatiron or round brush and blower with a light mist of hairspray to style it into place. Do not overspray to finish; allow it to be free! If your hair is super-thick, getting rid of some of it by pulling it back will save time. Sloppy tousled hair is in and very sexy. Yes, mature women who wear modern style are sexy! Simply twist and tuck the hair back and secure with crisscrossed bobby pins. Finish with a light back comb to hide the pins. Another cool look is the modernized topsy tail on top. It adds height and volume. Remember that hair is an accessory and should complement your outfit. Sleek lines require sleek hair. Do not wear full hair if you have a lot of poof around your neckline or sleeves. It is always a good idea to sneak a peek in the mirror from a distance to see if your outfit and hair appear balanced. Going too heavy on accessories can look tacky; too much hair can, as well. Add a splash of sparkle, but not as much as the tree has. Makeup: Mineral is the best, as some lines have a stronger dye load and last all day. Choose matte finish for mature skin and shimmers for highlighting. Choose colors that will complement your wardrobe. Also remember to bring your compact along with you to touch up prior to photos. Mineral makeup will outlast you for sure! Etiquette: Remember to always bring the party hostess a gift! If it is your party, give yourself a break by hiring a few helpers to prepare and serve. This will alleviate much stress and allow you to be the hostess. Make sure that you mingle with all of your guests, introducing them to each other. Sometimes nametags are fun, as people can converse easier knowing names. Entertain with great food, drinks, friendship and radiate with your hospitality! Remember to enjoy the reason for the season! Try not to get wrapped up in too many details that really do not matter. Enjoy your blessings with Thanksgiving and praise. May God bless your holiday season and all of those in need!

Tips to look and feel great this holiday season Yai YaiLIFE N STYLE holidays mean to you, and set priorities for yourself and your family. Do not compare yourself to your friends and neighbors celebrate in your own way. Simplify. Do not try to do everything. Ask each family member to choose one activity or tradition that he or she particularly enjoys, and concentrate on those. Keep your holiday meals simple and use some store-bought items to lighten the workload. Get enough sleep. You can deal with stress better when you are not overtired. Make a regular bedtime one of your priorities. Make a budget and stick to it. Piles of expensive gifts do not create happiness. The stress and anxiety of dealing with debt can endure for months after the holidays. Your family and friends would much rather receive a simple token of your affection than cause you a financial burden. Ask them! Take time to relax and exercise. Schedule some quiet time to take a walk, sit down and watch a favorite TV show, or enjoy a cup of coffee with a friend. Eat healthy foods. Have a healthy snack before you go to a party to diminish the temptation to overindulge. Fill your plate with fruits and vegetables. Serve yourself small portions of rich foods and eat them slowly. Compensate for calorierich meals by eating lightly the rest of the day. Avoid fatty sauces and dressings, or substitute low-calorie ingredients in your holiday recipes. You can find many ideas on the Internet. Set aside time for your children. Children enjoy your attention more than anything else. Simplify your holiday activities so that you can devote time to playing with them, going for walks or outings, or doing craft projects together. Help your children to manage stress. The intense materialism of Christmas can bewilder and confuse children. Establish family traditions that emphasize spiritual values and family relationships. Make sure children get enough rest. Plan some activities or games to keep them entertained during family gatherings. Older teens may not want to spend all their time with family, but arrange for them to participate in specific activities. Family is important for them too. Your adult children may have other holiday obligations. Be understanding if they cannot come to your traditional holiday celebration. Arrange other ways to communicate, such as phone calls or Skype, an alternative celebration on another day, or a shared video. Avoid family conflicts. Stress and alcohol bring out the worst in people. Sidestep confrontations with difficult family members, and put aside hurt or angry feelings until you can discuss them later with someone who sympathizes. Reach out to others. If you are alone during the holiday, consider volunteering your services at a church, shelter, hospital or nursing home. Organize a shared meal with neighbors or friends. Talk to your doctor or seek professional counseling if you feel extremely depressed, overwhelmed, or anxious during the holidays. Keep your family safe. Follow safety precautions to prevent accidents when putting up lights and decorations. Keep glass ornaments and small objects, as well as nuts and alcoholic drinks, where toddlers cannot reach them. Be careful when using candles, and turn off lights when you are away from home. Designate a driver if alcohol is being consumed. If your teenagers are going to a party, make arrangements to pick them up (no questions asked) rather than have them ride with someone who has been drinking. Have a healthy, happy holiday!

WILSONContinued from Page C1 figure has tripled, and by estimates will reach more than 20 percent by 2030. In 1996, one-quarter of the senior population assessed their health as fair or poor, compared to 10 percent for all persons. Most older people have at least one chronic condition, and most have multiple conditions. Of the most frequently occurring ENT problems, hearing loss and sinusitis were in the top 5 percent of the complaints. In an effort to better communicate and meet the needs our senior population, the ENT must focus on the more common complaints that affect patients 65 years of age and older. This will include ear problems such as hearing loss, balance disorders, noises in the ear and wax obstruction. Nasal problems include allergies and sinusitis as the most common and can be as involved as severe nose bleeds, secondary to high blood pressure and blood thinners. Other nasal problems can affect airway and quality of sleep, which is often a common problem in the elderly. Diminished smell and taste disorders are widespread, but fortunately benign. Head and neck cancer is very common because many people from this generation were unaware, early on, of the dangers of alcohol and tobacco consumption. It is important that the ENT understands a senior adults need for quality of life, not just the issue of longevity at any price. There are many factors that enter into this equation. Families tend to play a greater role in the decision-making process for elderly patients. Surrogate decision-makers need to be evaluated closely. Achieving consensus may require more time and effort. On the other hand, an individual who is the sole caregiver for an ailing spouse may have special needs. An example of this type of situation is an elderly gentleman with throat cancer and a wife who has Alzheimers. The husband may not be able to undergo a complicated surgery with a lengthy recovery time in the hospital, and may need to opt for outpatient radiation therapy, which will allow him to continue to care for his wife. A future ENT will have to take these factors into account, or he will not be able to properly address the problems of the senior patient. Currently, there are efforts by the Academy of Otolaryngologists to address this concern in the training of new doctors.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

When I was 21 years old, I had all my teeth pulled. New ones were not put in immediately. I still have the same dentures. That makes them 65 years old. This was done in Rhode Island. Ive never used any kind of stuff to hold them in. They are thin in the roof part and bottom teeth are worn down some. I eat anything. My question is: Have you ever met anyone else who has had dentures that long, still in fine working condition? A: Thanks for your email. This is a good question, and it brings up some interesting points. First off, congratulations on having a set of teeth that have been so useful for such a long period of time. You are not alone in this category. There are many people from your era who have experienced much the same situation. This reminds me of a professor at dental school who I was very fond of. His name was Dr. Remy. Dr. Remy was the kind of guy who made a set of teeth similar to what you have described. Simply stated, he made them the old fashioned way with great success. He had much to offer as an instructor, but he was longwinded and very picky in approving the student to move on to the next step. As you might suspect, this meant he was always available and had lots of time to spend with you if you had the patience for him. Thankfully, my Dad taught me to seek out those who could help bring you to the next level and stick with them. As you probably suspected, I did all of my removable denture cases with Dr. Remy and loved every minute of it. He had so many tricks to offer that lead to a successful denture, even in tough situations. I never had to wait to have my work checked because no one else wanted to work with him. I always think of him and silently thank him for all the knowledge he gave me. Once again, Thanks Dr. Remy! Back to you: One of the reasons you have had such success is the fact that you did not have the dentures placed immediately after the extractions. You might recall from previous columns that immediate dentures are what we do most of the time because people of our time do not want to go without teeth for any period of time. There are many tricks available to make them successful, but there is nothing like waiting for healing to take place and then making the dentures. It leads to a better-fitting set of teeth that have the potential to last longer. That being said, please know that you are the exception rather than the rule when it comes to denture longevity. Also know that, though a denture can fit as well as you have described, over the years there are likely changes to ones appearance that might be evident. Through the process of creating a new set of teeth, many of those changes can be addressed if it is important to the patient. If this were not the case, one would probably continue using the teeth they are comfortable with. Another potential concern is the wear that occurs over time. You made mention of this. When the material gets thinner, it is also weakened. If enough pressure were put on the denture through either normal chewing or a fall to the floor, the denture is more apt to break. Though things like this can normally be repaired quickly, one might prefer to have a new set of dentures made, as either a backup set or their primary ones. I hope that I have answered your question adequately. I want to thank you for reminding me once again of Dr. Remy. The story I told here always puts a smile on my face. He was a great man.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

HealthNOTES showed he had diffuse large cell Non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL).This is a cancer of the lymph nodes. Groups of tiny, beanshaped organs called lymph nodes are located throughout the body at different sites in the lymphatic system. The largest concentrations of lymph nodes are found in the abdomen, groin, pelvis, underarms, and neck. Because lymph tissue is found in so many parts of the body, NHL can start almost anywhere and can spread to almost any organ in the body. It most often begins in the lymph nodes, liver, spleen, or bone marrow. NHL has many different types and subtypes, and the exact diagnosis is very important. It can be either lowgrade or intermediate or high-grade, depending on what pathologists find under the microscope. My patients NHL was intermediate grade or an aggressive one. These types of lymphoma usually need more intensive chemotherapy. Treatment is usually started immediately. These lymphomas are often curable. He was in agony from his pain when I started the treatment with chemotherapy. He was on RCHOP chemotherapy, which is a combination of five different drugs. This is very aggressive treatment. One week after I started his treatment, his pain was markedly better and he needed very little narcotics. Two weeks later, he was completely pain-free, his appetite markedly improved and he felt a lot better. He lost his hair from chemotherapy, but he overall felt much better because the cancer responded to treatment. After two months, I checked his PET/CT scan again. His cancer which was 18 cm in size before treatment, now shrunk to only 1 cm. He is finishing remaining chemotherapy of a total course of 18 weeks. I am very optimistic that his cancer is in complete remission and he has an excellent chance of cure. Remember, there are many new remarkable treatments for cancer. In the modern era, do not get scared of cancer and do not lose hope.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society.

But that may all change, because patients with earlystage ER-positive breast cancer seem to show evidence of an improvement in the risk of recurrence and the risk of death if they continue tamoxifen for 10 years instead of just five years. The data from this study, recently presented, was published online Dec. 5 in The Lancetto coincide with a presentation at the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. Researchers from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom assessed the effect of continuing therapy with tamoxifen for 10 years instead of stopping at five years. A group of 12,894 women from the worldwide Adjuvant Tamoxifen: Longer against Shorter trial who had early breast cancer and had completed five years of treatment were randomly allocated to continue treatment to 10 years or stop treatment. The effects on outcome were reported for the 6,846 women with ER-positive disease. The researchers found that continuation of tamoxifen correlated with significant reductions in the risk of breast cancer recurrence, breast cancer deaths, and the overall risk of death. During years five to 14, the cumulative risk of recurrence was 21.4 percent for women allocated to continue tamoxifen and 25.1 percent for controls, and the breast cancer death rate was 12.2 and 15 percent, respectively. Long-term follow-up is ongoing. So, as you can see, there is a small but real benefit noted with continuing treatment. These results, taken together with results from previous trials of five years of tamoxifen treatment versus none, suggest that 10 years of tamoxifen treatment can approximately halve breast cancer mortality during the second decade after diagnosis. So, if you are on tamoxifen, talk to your physician, look at all factors regarding this medication, including the side effects and longterm risks, and determine individually whether taking tamoxifen for 10 years is the right thing for you.Dr. Bennett is a board certified radiation oncologist at the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute and a member of the Citrus County Unit of the American Cancer Society.

It was a most delightful Citrus Christmas Present from the allvolunteer Citrus Community Choir last Sunday at St. Timothys Lutheran Church in Crystal River, directed by Jacki Scott with accompaniment by Sally Smith. With a nostalgic noting of the groups debut at St. Timothys in 2003 with 22 members, the group has grown to include 42 and is able to offer annual scholarships. It was a mix of popular and traditional holiday favorites, like Theres No Place Like Home for the Holidays evoking memories of family gatherings of the past. The concert opened with a rousing rendition of Lets Have a Christmas Celebration, written by David T. Clydesdale, followed by the deeply moving What a Wonderful Child, featuring soloist Natalie Brown. Cellos and violins added to the magic of the musical selections. We were favored with a traditional Catalonian carol, The Icy December, written by Mark Hays, followed by Some Folks Christmas by Suwannee River composer Stephen Foster and Greg Gilpin. The gifts of the choir continued to delight us with Theres No Place Like Home For the Holidays with soloists Carolyn Crawford and Steve Johnson, a piece written by Al Stilman, Robert Allen and Mark Hays. The first half of the festive concert was concluded with Everywhere Christmas Tonight composed by Phillip Brokks, J. Paul Williams and Joseph Martin. The second part of the concert was the Citrus County debut of A Christmas Cantata written by Archangelo Corelli and only the second performance in Florida. It was a resounding Christmas proclamation with soloists Jim Houle, Shirley Perregaux and Ashlyn Gibbs. The third part of the concert featured Jesus Child composed by John Ritter, the story of Jesus, the shepherds, the angels, Joseph and Mary, and the shining star over His head. The familiar Lord of the Dance, by Sydney Carter and David Willcocks, Wonder as I Wander by John Ritter, and the classic favorite Silent Night, by Franz Gruber and David Willcocks, concluded the Citrus Christmas Present to a most appreciative audience of Citrus Community Concert Choir fans. A festive We Wish You a Merry Christmas was the closing signature on the choirs lovely Christmas card to all of us who enjoy their annual presentations. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo to the choirs violinists, Liesa Miller, Jean Beck, Anna Lane and the cello soloists, Virginia Lane and Stephen Lane. The adaptation of Archangelos Christmas Cantata was a stupendous effort on the part of each member of the choir and its director and accompanist. Bravo! Bravo!

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2012 C5 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.In todays deal, the necessity is winning nine tricks in three no-trump. How should South try to do that after West leads his fourth-highest heart and East puts up the 10? In the old days, responder bid four-card suits up the line at the one-level. But nowadays, players often skip over diamonds to show a major. That is especially valid when the diamonds are weak and the major is strong. Souths rebid of two no-trump shows a balanced hand too strong for a one-no-trump opening and too weak for a two-no-trump opening usually 18 or 19 high-card points. It is in principle game-forcing, unless responder miscounted his points on the first round, bidding with fewer than the normally expected six points. South starts with eight top tricks: two spades, two hearts and four diamonds. He does not have time to establish the clubs. The play would go heart, club, heart, club, run the hearts for down one. Instead, declarer must try for a third spade trick. It looks normal to play low to dummys jack, but that is not the best line. That requires Wests having the queen (or the 10 and nine being doubleton or third). There is a second chance: that West has the 10 and nine of spades. First, South should play a spade to dummys eight. Here, it brings out the queen and the contract is home. But if East could win the trick more cheaply, South would finesse dummys jack on the second round, having lost nothing when compared to a first-round finesse of the jack.

Its a part-time job at minimum wage, but the kids are great, and I am grateful to be employed. My problem is with the supervisor of the program. Jane constantly changes our group assignments, putting us with a different age group almost every day. This makes it difficult for the kids to bond with us as their caregivers and settle into a routine. Since the kids have various activities outside of our program, keeping up with the everchanging schedules to make sure they get where they need to be is a nightmare. Even worse, Jane sometimes subs if one of the regular caretakers is absent, and she is terrible with the kids. She frequently loses her temper and yells at them, and I overheard her tell one little boy that he was bad when he misbehaved. And several of us were present when she used racial slurs about some of the children. One of my coworkers, Sara, finally decided she had to speak up, but when she went to Janes supervisor, it turned out Jane had already lodged a complaint about Sara, and instead of listening to what Sara had to say, they fired her. Sara was a dependable, dedicated worker who was loved by the kids. We think Jane sensed Saras growing dissatisfaction and struck first. Saras dismissal has made the rest of us afraid to say anything to upper management for fear of getting the same treatment. What should we do? Worried for the Kids Dear Worried: You need to register a complaint about Jane in a large enough group that no ones job is threatened. First, document instances of mistreatment or inappropriate behavior with the children. Then several of you should speak to Janes superior, together, and present your record of evidence. Dont make it personal. Surely the school would not want to leave itself open to a lawsuit from a parent. Dear Annie: I am a 60-year-old divorced female and have been seeing Harrison for three years. Despite the fact that Harrison is a wonderful man honest, funny, handsome, loyal and hardworking there is one thing I cant get past: He is terribly under-endowed, if you get my drift. Im embarrassed to even think of complaining about this, but it affects the whole lovemaking thing. Ive always had a strong sex drive, and the lack of, um, size is unsatisfying. How do I get past this? I truly care about Harrison and hate to think that Im so shallow that his size would matter so much. Its as petty as a man saying his girlfriend is great, but shes flat-chested, so shes out. But obviously its bothering me enough to write. What do you think? Another Little Thing in the Way Dear Little Thing: We wont get into the size doesnt matter discussion, because it obviously matters to you. First, try Kegel exercises (talk to your gynecologist for information). It is also possible to find greater satisfaction through different positions and techniques and the use of sex toys. But only you can determine how important this is to your relationship. If you truly love Harrison, this is something manageable. Otherwise, its simply a source of frustration. Dear Annie: This is in response to N.Y., N.Y., who didnt want to visit her aging grandmothers. Guess what? Its not all about you. Those old people are still in there in that failing mind and body. Life gives us all kinds of opportunities to set aside our comforts and be of service to someone in need. Stopping by to say hello, even if we just hold their hand while they sleep or listen to their babblings, allows them to know at some deep level that we care about them.
