US 19 Crystal River Stocks gain on optimism that a budget deal is near Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks climbed on Wall Street Tuesday, pushing the Standard and Poors 500 to its highest level in two months, on optimism that lawmakers are closing in on a budget deal that will stop the U.S. from going over the fiscal cliff at the beginning of next year. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 115.57 points to 13,350.96, its biggest one-day gain in almost a month. The Standard & Poors 500 rose 16.43 points to 1,446.79, its highest close since Oct. 18. The Nasdaq composite rose 43.93 points to 3,054.53. House Speaker John Boehner told reporters he remains hopeful that a fiscal cliff compromise can be reached, but says President Barack Obama has yet to offer a balanced deficit-cutting plan. Boehner said Obamas latest offer for $1.3 trillion in tax increases over the next decade with $850 billion in spending cuts is not enough. The White House says that President Obama has moved halfway to meet Boehner on a budget deal. People are cheering the prospect for some compromise in Washington right now, said Joe Costigan, director of equity research at Bryn Mawr Trust Co. At the moment there is some pretty good news and the market is reacting favorably to it, but the deal isnt done yet. Stocks slumped after the presidential election Nov. 6 on concern that a divided government would struggle to reach an agreement before Jan. 1, when a series of tax increases and government spending cuts are scheduled to take effect if no deal is reached. Those measures could push the U.S. back into recession. The S&P 500 has since recouped all of those losses. Some investors say stocks are already pricing in too much optimism. Any deal, while ensuring that the economy avoids the full impact of the fiscal cliff, will still involve higher taxes and less government spending. That will be a drag on economic growth, said David Wright, a managing director and co-founder at Sierra Investment Management in Santa Monica, Calif. There are just too many naive people thinking that the agreement itself is a significant event it isnt, Wright said. The implementation is going to be negative for the economy. Stocks added to their gains after the Standard & Poors rating agency said at midday that it had raised Greeces credit grade by six notches to B-, lifting the country out of default. The threat of a Greek default had roiled markets in the first half of this year. Investors worried that the heavily indebted nation would leave the euro, opening the way for a break-up of the currency block.

PREPPING THE WORKFORCE Editors note:The Chronicle is temporarily lifting its restriction of national issues in Sound Off to allow comments about the Sandy Hook tragedy. Could happen anywhereIn reference to the Connecticut shooting of the children: Im sure no matter what religion we all are, we all pray for those children. And I have just a couple words to the fools who keep writing in or calling in about the sheriffs so-called tank its an armored vehicle and his helicopter. What happened up there could happen anywhere. Thank God we have a sheriff who is knowledgeable (of) what goes on in this whole world. This could happen anywhere. It has happened before. We need a good sheriff like we have now who knows what goes on. As a retired professional firefighter in Washington, D.C., I seen what these armored vehicles can do with the police department.Guns designed to kill On Friday (Dec. 14), a man in China stabbed 22 children at a primary school. All survived. On the same day at a primary school in Newtown, Conn., a man shot 20 children. All died. Guns are designed to kill. No matter how one feels about guns, every responsible citizen should contact legislators and urge them to find ways to prevent violence against our most precious resource, our children.Blame rests with momThis is in response to gun control. The incident that happened in Connecticut is definitely a terrible thing to have happened poor young, little children being killed by a crazy gunman with (a) mental disorder. But once again, the anti-gun people, they cannot jump on this one. The blame rests solely on the mother, who had numerous firearms in the house, easy access to her son who had a known mental problem. Video games to blameIm calling about the terrible shooting in Connecticut. This is a terrible thing to happen, especially at Christmastime. People blame the guns for all this stuff thats happening in the world today. Guns have something to do with it, but more than anything else, I think all of these video games the children are allowed to buy and play that make shooting people, other people, other things, OK. Take some of these video games away from the children and maybe they wont get all these bright ideas.Shame on Citrus CountyOn the day of the tragic shooting in Connecticut, the front-page Chronicle stick-on said, Gun show this weekend. All along (U.S.) 19 that day, there were signs advertising the gun show. Shame on Citrus County.Long speech cruelThat speech the president gave Sunday night about sympathy for the children was a good speech, but it was very cruel to give such a long speech at this time. That speech should be given a month from now when people can really listen to it without their heart being so broken.Violence to blameMr. President, if you want to change something due to this tragedy, for heavens sake get after the entertainment industry that promotes violence, the video games that promote violence. Some of them just think this is great. They dont realize this is forever. So you need to do something about that part of it. Forget the gun bit. Most people who have guns use them wisely. Their mental attitude isnt always right. The video violence on TV, in the movies, in the entertainment viewed that has to stop if youre going to stop anything.Get rid of assault rifles Daily, the assault rifles are killing off our children, our adults, and our country is going down the drain, because when are you and when are the people, when are the mothers and when are the fathers going to say throw off this NRA that doesnt care about the citizens? They dont care as long as they have their guns. Ive got more guns than a lot of them, but Im smart enough to know different and most of them dont know any different. And youre going to have to do something or were going to all be gone. The country wont be anything like we know it now.Tragic happeningsIve been in four wars and Im used to death, but I cant get used to somebody gunning down children. This is so tragic and so unnecessary and I just think about it. Stop glorifying the jerks Im calling the Sound Off in reference to the tragedy in Connecticut. Here in the New York Post in Sundays paper, on the front page is the picture of the jerk (who) killed those little children. The media stops needing to put these peoples pictures on the TV and in the paper and glorifying them and giving them what they want. Leave them off. Put the victims, not the person or idiot jerk that did it. Cancel gun show A gun show held the same weekend as one of the worst tragedies in the United States? Maybe out of respect, that gun show could have been canceled. Whats it going to take 40 children to get killed, maybe 60 children to get killed? Enough is enough. Its time to take action. I ts hard to believe in this economy, but 49 percent of U.S. employers report they have difficulty filling jobs. Lots of folks are looking for work, but they dont offer what employers need. Its called the skills gap. What does this skills gap look like locally? Thats what Citrus/ Marion/Levy Workforce Connection set out to discover six months ago. Starting in June, employers were invited to industry-specific forums to discuss hardest-to-fill jobs, skills needed, the extent to which applicants had those skills and future needs. Individual employers were interviewed and asked to fill out a survey, offered in hard copy and online. The Addressing the Skills Gap report for our tricounty area is finally available. While this report addresses only what employers in our region said, it echoes similar national studies. Locally, more than half the responding businesses rated applicants skill levels as fair or poor. Many applicants simply are not coming to employers with the necessary skills. Workforce Connection and the county economic development groups have identified five targeted industries critical to our regions economic future: manufacturing; health care; information technology; transportation, distribution and logistics; and business and financial services. The report examines each and identifies the specific occupations and hard skills employers say they need in employees. The report also identifies crosssector skill gaps, common issues among all businesses. Unfortunately, these problem areas include basic reading, writing and math skills. Then there are the so-called soft skills, which include spoken and written communication, critical thinking, ability to work in small groups, customer service skills and having basic professionalism and life skills. For example, attendance and punctuality are important, as are appropriate dress and etiquette, having a positive attitude and work ethic and showing respect and initiative. Unless we can close these skills gaps, Citrus County has no chance of fostering and sustaining a vibrant, diverse economic development. What should our next steps be? Theres no magic bullet. It will take collaboration among community organizations that might not otherwise see themselves as partners. Businesses of all types and sizes must be engaged in the process alongside education and training providers, economic development groups, chambers of commerce, local elected officials, community leaders, and even families and community-based organizations. Business engagement is critical. The Skills Gap report noted a disappointingly low employer turnout during the datagathering sessions. It is in employers best interests to partner with education providers on targeted, innovative approaches to workforce readiness. The report suggested Workforce Connection coordinate a regional Skills Gap Task Force to determine priorities and engage the community partners in implementing solutions. The task force is a good idea, but closing the skills gap in Citrus County must be an immediate action item. As a start, the Citrus County Economic Development Council is already planning a local working group to focus on the skills gap for some 600 job openings here. We will watch closely for new options and pathways to close the skills gap, so businesses as well as employees can get on the path to prosperity. Theres a saying if you expect the best, youll probably get it and thats a good attitude to have for economic development in Citrus County.

David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus Founded by Albert M. WilliamsonCITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE In violence, we forget who we are, just as we forget who we are when we are engaged in sheer perception. Mary McCarthy, On the Contrary 1961 I recently taped a radio show with Bud Hedinger on WFLA-AM 540. The only issue discussed during the show was the tragedy in Connecticut. It was one of the toughest shows I have ever done. Like most Americans, I am having trouble trying to understand how anyone could massacre young innocent children. In terms of shock to the system, this can be compared to Sept. 11. Where do these people come from? Why dont we know more about them so they can be stopped? What can we do about evil in the world that seems to have no limits on the damage it can impose on innocent people, including 6-year-olds? The best we can do now is pray for these young people, their families, neighbors and friends. We cant give in to the terrorist. We have to continue our lives and remember every day to hug our children and be especially thankful each day for our families. This incident is political. We had debates on gun control in the House. In 1994, AR-15s were one of the semiautomatic weapons banned under a 1994 law that expired in 2004. The bill had broad public support but was not supported in the Congress. In 2004 an election year Democrats were running uphill. Congressman Tom DeLay (R-Texas) who led the fight to keep the bill from being reinstated called the ban feel-good legislation. The House did not bring the bill to the floor for debate or a vote. My guess is some legislation will pass, probably involving assault weapons again. However, this is not just a guncontrol issue. It is an issue involving the violence in our country. I have never been much for national commissions, but I think Liebermans idea of a national commission on violence could be an effective way to look at what we can do and what we can learn from the various attacks on the United States. I think an overall approach is needed and Lieberman has the credentials to chair such a group. For me, when President Barack Obama cried making a speech, I thought he was the kind of person we elected four years ago. He was clearly upset and cared about the young people who unfortunately had been gunned down. It may be this terrible tragedy will give Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner a chance to bring this country together. It seems quibbling over the fiscal cliff is a lot easier to deal with than violence in the United States, which has taken many forms. I believe getting our fiscal house together is worthwhile, and our country is looking for some positive action on behalf of those who we have elected to serve us. I wish I had some answers to the question of terrorism. I wish I could suggest a way to make a difference and we would never again face such a loss. Like Sept. 11, those who are gone will always be remembered. We will keep them in our prayers. God Bless America. Lou Frey was a junior member of Congress from Florida from 1969 to 1979.

Tired of Duke issueWell, Im getting tired of this Duke tax thing. I think it would be great if Duke withheld that money. But what really cracks me up is, instead of being $16 million short, the county could have been only $5 million short when Duke offered $30 million and the county refused it. That $5 million less would have been a lot better than $16 million. The problem with this county is the people running it have been spending money like its nothing all the time and constantly spending it on stupid things such as the port and all these other studies they have done that they dont use and everything. But anyhow, they got what they deserved and so did the people of the county, because they vote the same people in time after time and then they complain about the way they spend money, like Dawsy and these other county commissioners. Some of them are in there two or three terms already, but they dont get rid of them. Get rid of these people. If you keep getting rid of them every election, somebody will get in there (who) will really run the county the right way. Think about it. Cold hands Am I the only one (who) sees pictures of businessmen with white shirts and ties and suits with their hands in their pockets? To be tactful, Im going to suggest maybe their hands are cold.Great musical showWhat a wonderful performance we saw today, Saturday (Dec. 8), as the Citrus Community Band played at Cornerstone Baptist Church. That was an outstanding, beautiful performance. The music was excellent. It was flawless and we all enjoyed it so much. What a wonderful band. Please try to see them when they play, give concerts.Respect for flag This is in regards to Respect for flag. He said youre only supposed to take it down at night. When I was on safety patrol and in fifth grade and stuff, they made me go outside and take the flag down if it starts to rain. So you take it down in the rain and at night. So respect your flag.Citrus safeTo the person (who) said there is no crime in Citrus County: Does he ever read the newspaper, the sheriffs report? And why should the sheriff get rid of the tank? Why do you think we dont have so much crime? Dont you think Sheriff Dawsys the cause of that? He keeps a lot of people safe.Get informedOn Dec. 9, there was another Sound Off about an uninformed person who refers to the armored vehicle the county sheriff has as a tank. He also stated hes against the sheriffs deputies taking their private vehicles home. I have been to 45 other states traveling. I am a retired professional firefighter. Theres jurisdictions that have smaller populations than Citrus County that have armored vehicles. It is not a tank; it is an armored vehicle. I have also seen firsthand what these armored vehicles can do in a hostage situation when youve got some crazy person with a gun inside a home holding hostages or shooting at innocent people. So get your facts straight. Get out, see the country and you will learn firsthand that Citrus County is only doing what the vast majority of police departments do. Campground lease disappointment It was a sad day for Citrus County residents when at Tuesdays BOCC meeting (the commissioners) voted to basically to privatize the Chassahowitzka boat ramp. The BOCC leases the surrounding SWFWMD property, aka Chassahowitzka campgrounds, to Moore & Moore Co. for a miniscule $100 a month. The BOCC gave its final approval to M&M to charge $7.50 parking fee or $350 yearly pass. No discounted rate for Citrus County residents, even though every Florida county that charges a fee at a park or boat ramp gives the residences of that county a steep discount on the fee. One example is Hernando County. They sell residents a yearly pass for $50. So much for fairness to the residents of Citrus County from the BOCC. Our taxes paid for many very expensive improvements to the campgrounds. Our taxes also paid for an unnecessary new double boat ramp and canoe launch. Now the BOCC is allowing Moore & Moore to profit from the hard spent taxes of the residents of Citrus County. Where is the justice in this? To our BOCC, I say, just because you can, doesnt make it right. To our District 2 Commissioner Kenney: Thanks for nothing. Bill Watkins Chassahowitzka Become enlightened! To all those people offended by the Florida Department of Healths survey on young womens sex lives, you should pray contraceptives will always be free for any person (who) cannot afford it. Teenage pregnancy is higher than ever today, even with free birth control. Whats your choice: 1. Pay for a womans birth control? Or, 2. Pay for the womens medical expenses during and after pregnancy; then continue paying for not only her, but now her childs upkeep for the following 18 years; paying for their food, medical expenses, clothing, discounts on housing, phones, etc? Wake up. Concerned property taxpayer.Margie Buset Floral City Drugs killing society Exodus 20, verse 13 says, Thou shalt not kill. Those selling and manufacturing illicit drugs are killing our young people. They are destroying lives slowly, year by year, and creating misery for family members. The victims come from every stratum of life. Some people say no one forces a person to take drugs, but most people believe they can quit at any time, not realizing how easy it is to get hooked. The monetary cost to self and family is enormous. Loss of job, home; some resort to crime to support their habit. Rehab is expensive, but about the only effective cure. Many need repeat rehab. Murder can be indirect, which is what illicit drug selling and manufacturing are. The Bible is not archaic, but can be translated to modern life. Margo Blum Homosassa Wake up, AmericaOur Congress is great at creating slogans, but even greater at accomplishing nothing. Will these solve our problems? Throw grandma under the bus. Go off the fiscal cliff. Be transparent. Kick the can up the road. Wow dynamic! My slogan to Congress is, Get busy and accomplish something for our country before it is too late. John J. Bressan Homosassa Who really is to blame? I, for one, am tired of the ongoing railing against Progress Energy/Duke. This mornings headlines (Dec. 9) were over the top. Dont you have anything better to print? When are our politicians going to stop whining and threatening and begin addressing the issue at hand? All we have seen from your publication are comments on how bad a citizen Progress/Duke is along with a series of threats and name-calling from our politicians. So you politicians are faced with problems; so what. Grow up, do your job and deal with it. It is difficult for me to believe Progress/Duke is totally at fault for the current tax problem and no responsibility for its creation properly falls on our politicians. I know politicians are never responsible for anything and anything that goes wrong is always someone elses fault, but still. As I understand it, tax assessments for the controversial equipment is handled one way in the other nine counties Progress/Duke operates in and a different way in Citrus. Could it be Progress/ Duke is right and our Citrus politicians have it wrong? Lets find out who is right and who is wrong before we start allocating blame for this mess. David B. Cavanaugh Hernando Wonderful, caring community In the hustle and bustle that accompanies this holiday season, it is sometimes not so easy to be jolly. I certainly was not Saturday (Dec. 8) when I discovered I had lost my credit card. I had only been to one store, Bealls Department Store. So in a state of panic, I returned to the store to see if my card had been found. There were a lot of weary shoppers in long lines at the store, but when I asked to cut in line to ask about my card, everyone in line could not have been nicer. Many expressed empathy with my situation since I guess I must have looked as frantic as I was. When I got to the service center at Bealls Department Store, the clerks were busy wrapping presents and the lines were long but, again, people willingly stepped aside and let me inquire. What I found out was that, indeed, someone had found my card in the parking lot and brought it into the store. The woman at the service counter had already taken the time to look up my telephone number and leave a message for me to contact the store. I am truly overwhelmed by the stores cooperation and everyones honesty and sympathetic attitude. Thank you to all who helped. I am grateful to live in such a caring community.Judith Rystar Pine Ridge Port not right industry for Citrus I believe Port Citrus is a bad idea. What would be our export? Surely we need no more imports! I dont see this as a sound investment or beneficial to a population of mostly retirees. Citrus needs factories such as a company that specializes in making solar panels for solar electricity, so retired individuals can become independent from greedy corporations such as Progress Energy. This would create jobs and profit, enduring to Citrus County. There is also windmill electricity, where a company can take the sea breezes and make something out of it that is profitable to the creation of jobs and supportive of local businesses as well. This was a beginning letter, I sent to the Chronicle in March 2011, unfortunately it never made the commentary page. I knew then as I do now, grants are not a free ticket and we need to go green. Greed from Progress Energy and Citrus career politicians will eventually trouble our community and federal grants never bring order if it doesnt support independence. Order has purpose and its not to follow the federal exchange. Grants are subsidies, which are of public interest, not politically driven. Historically, grants represent state needs. Does Florida really need a port, nestled in a retirement location? Our egomania political staff/career politicians of Florida cant depend on taxpayers to bail out nuclear plants, who already obtained building costs from electrical users, which is a misappropriation of funds or support Port Citrus, another political cash flow debt disaster. Retirees cant continue being mommies and daddies to governmental playground babies who want everything they see, resulting in moaning, stamping, threatening to turn debt red if they dont get their way and taking no accountability for a balanced checkbook. If we continue along the path of liability, our financial obligations will not only be losses in a court case, but sacrifices toward funding independent energy sources. We say we are free, then why all this animosity? Go green!

World BRIEFS Nation BRIEFS Boy brings gun to school, cites fears SALT LAKE CITY Authorities said a Utah sixthgrader caught with a gun at school told administrators he brought the weapon to defend himself in case of an attack similar to the mass shooting last week in Newtown, Conn. School officials said the 11year-old has been arrested on suspicion of possessing a dangerous weapon and aggravated assault after other students told police he pointed the handgun at them on a field at a suburban Salt Lake City elementary school. Petraeus mistress wont face chargeWASHINGTON The Justice Department has decided not to charge David Petraeus mistress, Paula Broadwell, with cyberstalking as part of its investigation into an email scandal that led to the resignation of the CIA director and storied general. Broadwells lawyer, Robert Muse, gave The Associated Press a letter from U.S. Attorney Robert ONeill that said no federal charges will be brought in Florida related to alleged acts of cyberstalking. Petraeus resigned as CIA director in November after acknowledging the affair. New phone-app rules cause worryWASHINGTON Developers of smartphone software are bracing for regulations they said will stifle creativity and saddle small businesses with legal and technical costs. The changes, which the Federal Trade Commission expects to approve this week, would update a 14-year-old law prohibiting the collection of personal information from preteens. Businesses said they fear under the FTC proposal, routine transfers of data that pose no threat to a childs safety will be treated the same as the improper gathering of information. Storm moves through RockiesSALT LAKE CITY A winter snowstorm moved through the Rocky Mountain region Tuesday as many people prepared for the start of their holiday travels. The storm could cause travel delays on major highways such as Interstate 40 in Arizona, Interstate 15 in Utah, Interstate 70 in Utah and Colorado and Interstate 25 in Colorado. The National Weather Service was forecasting 3 to 8 inches of snow in southern Utah and northern Arizona on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 6 to 8 inches of snow in some parts of Colorado. The Utah Avalanche Center has issued a warning for dangerous backcountry snowslides in northern Utahs mountains. By Thursday, the snow is expected to subside in Utah and Arizona. By then, storms will begin in the Pacific Northwest. 9/11 cancer study wont settle debate CHICAGO The most comprehensive study of potential World Trade Center-related cancers raises more questions than it answers and wont end a debate over whether the attacks were really a cause. The study suggests possible links with prostate, thyroid and a type of blood cancer among rescue and recovery workers exposed to toxic debris from the terrorist attacks. But there were few total cancers and even the study leaders say the results should be interpreted with caution. Wal-Mart: Bribery probe continuesMEXICO CITY Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said it continues an internal investigation into allegations its Mexico subsidiary paid bribes to get stores built and will cooperate with any investigations by authorities. The company is responding to a new report by The New York Times saying 19 store sites across Mexico were the target of Wal-Mart bribes. Among them is a store near Teotihuacan, the site of the famous pyramids outside Mexico City. TheTimes said Wal-Mart de Mexico paid more than $200,000 to circumvent zoning and other laws preserving archaeological sites to get the store built in 2004. A Wal-Mart statement Tuesday said the Teotihuacan store is part of the company investigation that began about a year ago. TheTimes first reported on allegations of Wal-Mart bribery last April.American gets house arrest in BoliviaLA PAZ, Bolivia A Bolivian judge Tuesday released a New York businessman and granted him house arrest after he was jailed for 18 months without a charge despite strong evidence he was fleeced and extorted by corrupt prosecutors. Jacob Ostreicher hugged his wife and his lawyers after hearing the judges ruling. The 54-year-old American will now be under house arrest while the authorities finish investigating his money laundering case. Ostreicher was never charged with any crime. The people who led his prosecution, including the No. 1 legal adviser in the Interior Ministry, are now themselves in jail, accused of belonging to a shakedown ring that authorities said preyed on people deemed to have deep pockets. Youths detained in Instagram unrestSTOCKHOLM Dozens of angry youths in southwestern Sweden pelted police with rocks and bottles in unrest apparently triggered by derogatory material published on the Internet. No injuries were reported Tuesday, but police detained 27 youths in the clashes at the Plus High School in Goteborg, Swedens secondlargest city. Swedish public television said students were upset over photos and sexually explicit texts about local teenagers that someone posted on photo-sharing site Instagram. Separately, Instagram faced a storm of outrage after a change in its user agreement hinted it might use shared photos in ads. Volcano blasts lava high above crater QUITO, Ecuador Volcano monitors said Ecuadors Tungurahua volcano shot lava a half-mile above its crater overnight and blasted hot rock and gas nearly two miles down its flank. The regional director for the governments emergency agency is Lourdes Mayorga and she said officials have prepared shelters and are working to evacuate any people in danger Tuesday. The countrys National Geophysics Institute said the volcano blasted lava well above its crater overnight and sent out a plume of ash and gas about a mile high. The renewed eruption in central Ecuador began last week and plumes on Sunday rose as high as three miles above the 16,479-foot crater. Page A10 WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2012 N ATION & W ORLD From wire reports C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE From wire reports Investors bail on gunmakers Associated PressThe company that makes one of the weapons used to kill elementary school children in Connecticut is being put up for sale by its owner, which called Fridays tragedy a watershed event in the debate over gun control. The private-equity group Cerberus Capital Management said Tuesday it will sell its controlling stake in Freedom Group International, the maker of Bushmaster rifles. Investors also continued to bail out of other gunmakers while the retailer Dicks Sporting Goods said it would stop selling military-style rifles. The activity comes as the political winds appear to be shifting. Some Republicans now say theyre willing to discuss the issue of gun control along with mental health issues and violent video games. Cerberus cobbled Freedom Group together by buying Bushmaster, Remington, and other well-known gun brands starting in 2006. On Friday, a gunman using what is believed to have been a Bushmaster military-style rifle killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history. It is apparent that the Sandy Hook tragedy was a watershed event that has raised the national debate on gun control to an unprecedented level, Cerberus wrote in announcing the planned sale. Cerberus owned 95 percent of Freedom Group, according to a year-end 2011 filing for the gunmaker on its website. Freedom Group said its the largest firearms manufacturer in the U.S. It sold 1.1 million rifles and shotguns last year, along with 2 billion rounds of ammunition. Polio vaccination workers killed Associated Press Rukhsana Bibi, center, on Tuesday mourns for her daughter, polio worker Madiha Bibi, killed by unknown gunmen, at a local hospital in Karachi, Pakistan. Gunmen killed several people working on a government polio vaccination campaign in two different Pakistani cities on Tuesday, officials said. The attacks were likely an attempt by the Taliban to counter an initiative the militant group has long opposed. Fiscal cliff efforts ongoing Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner pushed ahead on negotiating a broad deal to avert the fiscal cliff, even as the GOP leader readied a backup plan Tuesday to pressure the White House with little time left to avoid a double hit on the economy. With exactly two weeks until automatic tax hikes and spending cuts, Boehner offered a measure, dubbed plan B, that would cancel tax increases due to take effect Jan. 1 on everyone earning $1 million or less, while allowing tax increases on those earning more than that amount. Boehner insisted his plan would address the burgeoning deficits and that the president has failed to produce a balance plan in weeks of post-election negotiations. But the speakers alternative was a non-starter with the White House and Democrats, and perhaps more damaging to its prospects, got a frosty reception from rank-and-file House Republicans in a morning closeddoor meeting. GOP aides said the leadership strategy is to pass the alternative plan in the House and send it to the Senate. NBCs Engel, crew escape abduction Associated PressBEIRUT NBCs chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel said Tuesday he and members of his network crew escaped unharmed after five days of captivity in Syria, where more than a dozen proregime gunmen dragged them from their car, killed one of their rebel escorts and subjected them to mock executions. Appearing on NBCs Today show, an unshaven Engel said he and his team escaped during a firefight Monday night between their captors and rebels at a checkpoint. They crossed into Turkey on Tuesday. NBC did not say how many people were kidnapped with Engel, although two other men, producer Ghazi Balkiz and photographer John Kooistra, appeared with him on the Today show. It was not confirmed whether everyone was accounted for. A closer look at Freedom GroupData is based on a filing that covered 2011: Headquarters: Madison, N.C. Brands: Bushmaster, Remington and DPMS. Guns sold: 1.1 million long guns. Annual revenue: $775 million, including firearms revenue of almost $426 million. 2011 results: Net loss of $6.7 million. It has lost money in each of the past five years except for a $54 million profit in 2009. Ownership: 95 percent of Freedom Groups shares are controlled by Cerberus, the rest by its directors. From wire reports Company that makes weapon used in school shooting to be sold Associated PressIncome taxes House Speaker John Boehner would allow income tax rates to rise for people making more than $1 million per year and would hold rates where they are for everyone making less. The top rate on income exceeding $1 million would go from 35 percent to 39.6 percent. President Barack Obama would freeze income tax rates for taxpayers making $400,000 or less and raise them for people making more. Payroll taxObama has dropped his proposal to extend a temporary cut in Social Security payroll taxes paid by 163 million workers. Republicans want that tax to go back up. Social security Obama is offering to reduce cost-of-living increases for Social Security recipients. Republicans have been seeking this as a key to long-term deficit reduction. But many congressional Democrats oppose it. Government pensions and veterans benefits would also get smaller costof-living increases. In addition, taxpayers, especially lowand middleincome families, would pay more because of changes in the way that tax brackets are adjusted for inflation. MedicareObama continues to reject Republicans plan to raise the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 67. Boehner now says raising the eligibility age is not essential to a deal. Obama wants to limit cuts in Medicare and other health care programs to about $400 billion over 10 years; Republicans want to overhaul Medicare to save even more money.Debt limit Obama wants a deal that would raise the amount the government is allowed to borrow to cover the next two years, to avoid another debt showdown with Congress until after the 2014 midterm elections. Other taxes Obama and Boehner propose raising taxes on dividends and capital gains from 15 percent to 20 percent. Both sides would reduce the number of deductions and exemptions wealthy taxpayers can claim. Obama would also let estate taxes revert to a 45 percent rate, after the first $3.5 million of an estate is exempted. Richard Engel spent five days in captivity. House speaker offers plan Whats on the table now Paula Broadwell mistress of former CIA director.

RISAK CorrespondentINVERNESS Its no real secret, how to beat the Citrus girls basketball team. Defeat the defense. Thats all. But knowing and doing can reside in different dimensions. Lecanto found that out for the second time this season when it visited the Hurricanes for a District 6A-6 matchup Tuesday. A viable game plan was in place, and it seemed to work, at least for a little while. Then Citrus vaunted defensive pressure took control of the game, allowing the Hurricanes to construct a 17-point second-quarter run that turned a close contest into a rout, one with an eventual final score of 65-28. Its like weve said before, said Citrus coach Brian Lattin, his team now 10-4 overall, 4-1 in 6A-6. Our basketball starts with defense. Good defense leads to good offense. Theres more to it than that, however. It seems this Hurricane squad has just one operating gear, and thats high. You cant teach effort, Lattin added. Thats within yourself. They work hard at practice and it translates into our games. The effect of Citrus pressure was, at least at the start, inconclusive. The Canes lead was just 17-12 after one quarter, with each side committing four turnovers. And a Paige Richards basket early in the second period narrowed the deficit to three for the Broncos ranked first in AP Pro32 poll Associated PressNEW YORK A nine-game winning streak has Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on top of the AP Pro32 NFL power rankings for the first time. The latest win came on the road, 34-17 at Baltimore, and was impressive enough to lift the Broncos to No. 1 by three points over the San Francisco 49ers. AFC West champion Denver (113) and playoff-bound San Francisco each received six first-place votes Tuesday in balloting by The Associated Press panel of 12 media members who regularly cover the league. The Broncos outpointed the 49ers for first, 375-372, in the closest voting of the season. The Broncos havent lost since early October and wont lose the next two weeks, said CBSSports.coms Clark Judge, referring to Denvers closing games against Cleveland and Kansas City. Theyre hot, theyre complete and they have Peyton. Whats not to like? Half the voters preferred the 49ers, who stormed to a 28-point lead over the Patriots on the road, then hung on for a 41-34 win to clinch a playoff berth. The 49ers can win the NFC West with a victory at Seattle on Sunday. Maybe the biggest regular-season win in the Jim Harbaugh era, said Bob Glauber of Newsday Not only a dominating early showing against the Pats on the road, but a terrific recovery after New Englands furious comeback. New England dropped from the top spot to third, followed by Atlanta and Houston. The Falcons and Texans bounced back with big wins after losses the previous week. Bradys still incredible, but dont know if I trust that defense, said Rich Gannon of CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio. Noted Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News : QB Tom Brady has now lost more home games this season (two) than in his previous three seasons combined (one).

The Eagles struck first this season, defeating the Panthers 4-0 on Nov. 20, but Lecanto wanted Tuesday night more and converted a 5-1 victory over Springstead, clinching the top spot in the district in the process. It definitely was the best game we have played (so far), Lecanto head coach Roselle Lattin said. I think we played a solid 80 minutes and Ive been waiting for the girls to do that (all year). They really wanted this.

Citrus High School rallied from two goals down to earn a 3-3 draw Tuesday against Crystal River High School in boys soccer. It was the second meeting in four days between the teams, with the Hurricanes beating the Pirates 2-1 on Friday at Crystal River. For Crystal River (6-6-4 overall), the tie was part of a string of frustrating games where the Pirates werent able to keep a lead, including a 2-1 loss Monday to Lecanto. With his team up 3-1 with 10 minutes to go in the game, Crystal River coach Bobby Verlato substituted out most of his starters, and goalkeeper Kyle Kidd. The Canes (6-3-2 overall) responded with two goals in a span of six minutes, and CR pins Lecanto J OE K ORNECKI III CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER The Crystal River wrestling team defeated county rival Lecanto 42-35 on Tuesday night in a hard-fought match in front of an excited crowd. We had some kids wrestle really well, Pirates head coach Craig Frederick said. Theyre still not where they should be ... we got some more work to do. Lecanto battled well. Crystal River grappler David Beccia (132-pound class) sparked the Pirates, as he pinned Lecantos Michael Bryant in the first period to give his team an 18-17 lead. Beccias pin gave Crystal River an advantage it would never relinquish despite Lecantos best efforts. In the 138-pound class, the Pirates Nick Hooper followed suit with a second-period pin of Lecantos Justin Sobol for a 2417 Pirates advantage. Jose Aday (145-pound class) outlasted the Panthers Matthew Wheat 12-8 in three full periods to give the Pirates a 10-point lead in the match.

The network and NCAA made the joint announcement Monday. The Golf Channel will broadcast three days of the 2014 mens championship from Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kan. It then will carry the mens and womens championships the following year when South Florida plays host to both at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla. It marks the first time since 1997 that the womens championship will be televised live. Network president Mike McCarley said the partnership will be the centerpiece of our broader commitment to covering the collegiate game. Mark Lewis, the NCAAs executive vice president of championships and alliances, called the deal the culmination of a collaborative effort between a lot of individuals over a long period of time. We are excited for our mens and womens golf student-athletes to gain additional exposure and for the fans of the sport to be able to see up close what makes these championships so special, Lewis said. Retiring once again Pepper leaving NBC Sports after eight years Associated PressDottie Pepper learned the art of retirement at an early age. In a practice round during her rookie season on the LPGA Tour, she wound up behind someone Pepper would describe as an aging veteran who had no business being out there. Pepper turned to her sister, who caddied for her that summer, and told her, Dont ever let me get to that point. Two years after her first shoulder surgery, when those blue eyes didnt blaze with quite as much intensity and Pepper began to realize there was more to life than chasing around a little white golf ball, she announced her retirement at the 2004 U.S. Womens Open when she was 38. Her retirement Sunday after eight years with NBC Sports was not much different. I would have to say this is similar to when Barry Sanders retired because shes going out on top of her game, said Tommy Roy, NBCs executive producer of golf who gave Pepper a chance, coached and critiqued her, and was sorry to see her go. Her work this year on the FedEx Cup and the Ryder Cup was impeccable. You could take her work and make a how-to tape for future broadcasters. Her last day at work was Sunday at the Father-Son Challenge in Orlando, Fla., the end of a ride that Pepper, 47, could not have imagined. It was former NBC staffer John Goldstein who persuaded Roy to give her a shot at the Womens Open, and Pepper took it from there. She started work in 2005 during the Florida swing on the PGA Tour, and then got her big break at her first U.S. Open that summer. She was assigned the next-to-last group, and walked the final round at Pinehurst No. 2 with the champion, Michael Campbell. You cant dream up an assignment like that, Pepper said. My very first Open and I walk in the winner. Just like her retirement from playing, however, Pepper caught herself pulled in another direction. She was tired of the travel, for one thing, and she found her passion shifting to junior golf. The PGA of America called on her again, and this time, Pepper listened. She decided at the Ryder Cup to leave her role as the most prominent female golf analyst and join the PGA of Americas board of directors, where she can work on developing junior golf programs. Roy was effusive with praise. The great thing about Dottie is not many players could come over from the LPGA and analyze in a critical way how the PGA Tour players (play) and still be respected by those players, he said. She garnered so much respect from the players. She came over and fit right in. Thats all Pepper really wanted. Roy said he would like to have another LPGA Tour player work the U.S. Womens Open next summer on Long Island, though it is not imperative for the NBC team to find another woman to fill Peppers role. It was never about gender, and Pepper never saw it that way. Its been the greatest thing because I was treated as a reporter and an analyst, not because I was a woman, she said. I was expected to toe the line. No matter how bad the weather was, how tough the walk was, I was to do everything the guys did. And thats how I wanted it. She was never lacking in intensity and honesty, sometimes to a fault. She once was criticized for shouting, Yes! when her opponent missed a putt in the Solheim Cup. Roy laughed when recalling her early years with NBC. Everyone on the NBC golf team was scared to death of her from when she was a player, he said. That intensity, however, led to her lowest moment in broadcasting. Pepper was working the Solheim Cup for Golf Channel in 2007 when the Americans kept missing one pivotal putt after another. They had gone to a commercial break, but someone forgot to hit the switch. Thinking they were off the air, Pepper said, Choking, freakin dogs! Only they werent off the air, and her commentary got back to the Americans. Pepper didnt remember saying it and she didnt even find out about it until six hours later, when the telecast was over and a producer closed the door behind him and said, Weve got a problem. An enormously sick feeling, Pepper said. The thing that still stings about that is that there were people at Golf Channel who had already packed my bags. They had issued my resignation. And (senior programming director) Don McGuire said, No, that wont be the case. That was our fault. Ill always be appreciative of him for that. Her sin wasnt being honest, rather it was being a cheerleader. Thats what hurt the most, she said. I was bleeding with them, and as a broadcaster, you cant do that. You call your sport. Pepper wasnt sure she would recover from that, and there are still a few American players who wont speak to her. Once a shoo-in as a Solheim Cup captain, Pepper quickly became an afterthought except in the booth. That changed this year when Meg Mallon chose Pepper as one of her assistant captains for the 2013 matches in Colorado. Will she be a captain someday? Only if Im wanted, she said. People have to want you to be a captain. But she says her decision to leave broadcasting was in no way related to her future in the Solheim Cup. It was simply time to move on to something else, which in this case is developing young American players at an early age. She has created a mascot called Bogey, a big range ball who is tired of his dead-end job and wants to be a player. Pepper is bringing Bogey to the PGA show next month. She describes him as a bridge so that golf isnt so scary to kids. Associated Press Dottie Pepper learned the art of retirement at an early age. She announced her retirement at the 2004 U.S. Womens Open when she was 38. Her retirement Sunday after eight years with NBC Sports was not much different.

Special to the ChronicleOfficial results for the Citrus County Open Bowling Tournament have been announced for the Greater Citrus USBC Association, which is the governing body for sanctioned bowling in Citrus County. Thanks to the support of the tournaments many commercial sponsors, this years prize fund was the largest in many years with $4,366 paid to the winners. Tournament entrants were separated into three divisions based upon their bowling averages and into three events team, doubles and singles. Bowlers who bowled in all three events were also eligible to enter the handicap or scratch all events competition, which added their scores in all of the events together for the opportunity to win additional prize money. Winners in the Team event were the Parkview Pinups in Division A (140 and below). On the team were Alice Clini, Mona Rosado, Dianna Kirk, and Marilyn Seymour. The Division B (141) winner was the team Darned if I Know consisting of Mavis Markopoulos, Susan Fabbre, Nancy Duncan and Marvin. Division C (190 and above) winner was Space Us with team members John Konte, Rick Barker, Steve Ratcliff and Bob Wood. With seven of the 12 first-place team members, the women bowlers dominated the winners circle of this years Open Tournament. Females also dominated in the Doubles Event with four of the six first-place winners. First place in Division A was won by Mavis Markopoulos and Susan Fabbre, Division B was won by Shane Schillings and Kim Mullis and Division C winners were Dorine Fugere and Dalton Gruzdas. In the Singles competition, Susan Fabbre took top honors in Division A, Justin Mullis was the Division B winner and Dominic Thompson captured the first place prize for Division C. In the All Events competition, bowlers competed as individuals and added all of their scores in the other three events together for a combined total. In Handicap Division A, the winner was Susan Fabbre, Division B was won by Shane Schillings and the Division C winner was Dalton Gruzdas. In the Scratch All Events, there are no divisions. First place was won by Tim Lawrence. Complete results scores and all winners are posted on the Association bulletin boards which can be found in every Citrus County bowling center and will be posted on the associations webpage at www. greatercitrususbca.com. Youth/ Adult tournament Looking for one more opportunity to do something special with your son or daughter before they return to school after the Christmas vacation? Why not enter the Youth/Adult Bowling Tournament at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 29 at the Beverly Hills Bowling Center located on State Road 491 in Beverly Hills. Entry forms are available at any county bowling center. Your child can win scholarship money, which will be added to their Smart Fund account with the US Bowling Congress. The Smart Fund is a scholarship program which enables sanctioned youth bowlers to earn money towards post-high school education programs such as college or vocational schools. This tournament is open to current sanctioned bowlers only; however, if you are interested in getting your child involved in Youth Bowling programs, you can contact the Youth Bowling representative at the Manatee Bowling Center in Crystal River or at Beverly Hills Bowl in Beverly Hills. Design a Logo contest for youths Youth bowlers are being sought with their ideas for a new logo for the Greater Citrus Bowling Association. A contest is being held to pick the best idea for a logo, which represents the unique character of Citrus County bowlers. Entry forms will be distributed to youth bowlers in their leagues over the next couple of weeks. If you are a youth bowler with a great idea, enter to win $100 for your Smart Fund and a custom jacket with your logo prominently displayed on it. You dont have to be an artist to win, just have a great concept which a professional artist will turn into the Associations new logo.Sponsors sought by Bowling Association 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of sanctioned bowling in Citrus County. In 1960, Bob and Bea Simon opened Sportsmans Bowling Center, the countys first bowling center in Inverness. Two years later, the Citrus County Mens Bowling Association was organized under the auspices of the American Bowling Congress. The Womens and the Youth Association quickly followed and for more than 40 years, the three associations supported and sponsored bowling in Citrus County. In 2005, the United States Bowling Congress merged the separate Mens, Womens and Youth Associations into a single national organization, representing all amateur bowlers in the United States. One of the many contributions to the sport of bowling in Citrus County over the last 50 years has been the support of local businesses for events and tournaments sponsored by the county associations. To commemorate the 50th anniversary, the Greater Citrus Association will publish a souvenir yearbook which will include stories and photographs telling the history of bowling in Citrus County. Local businesses interested in sponsoring this yearbook or bowlers with anecdotes or interesting stories to tell can contact Robert Hacker, the Association Manager at 352-422-6393 or roberthacker18@yahoo.com.

Maybe this will help you for this Christmas season. How about tickets for the Sony Open on March 18-31 in Miami (Key Biscayne)? This tournament is also called the fifth Grand Slam because all the top men and women participate and all play at the same time. For us Floridians, it is easy to get to and affordable as well. It is in the perfect time of the year not too cold or hot, like during the real Grand Slam tournaments. Obviously, tickets for the early rounds in the tournament are cheaper than toward the end, but an added bonus is the fact that all players are still in it. If you are not able to catch your favorite in a match, you might see him or her on a practice court. The first day tickets are only $9 for qualifying matches; day two is $15, like day one plus first-round women singles. With these tickets, you can go to all matches except in the grandstand. After that first day, prices go up each day, and night matches require separate tickets.

Eric van den Hoogen ON TENNIS Manziel named AP college football player of year Associated PressJohnny Manziel ran for almost 1,700 yards and 30 touchdowns as a dual-threat quarterback his senior year of high school at Kerrville Tivy. Who would have thought hed be even more impressive at Texas A&M when pitted against the defenses of the Southeastern Conference? On Tuesday, Manziel picked up another major award for his spectacular debut season. He was voted The Associated Press Player of the Year. As with the Heisman Trophy and Davey OBrien Award that Manziel already won, the QB nicknamed Johnny Football is the first freshman to collect the AP award. Manziels 31 votes were more than twice that of second place finisher Manti Teo, Notre Dames start linebacker. He is the third straight Heisman-winning quarterback to receive the honor, following Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton. Manziel erased initial doubts about his ability when he ran for 60 yards and a score in his first game against Florida. I knew I could run the ball, I did it a lot in high school, Manziel said in an interview with the AP It is just something that you dont get a chance to see in the spring. Quarterbacks arent live in the spring. You dont get to tackle. You dont get to evade some of the sacks that you would in normal game situations. So I feel like when I was able to avoid getting tackled, it opened some peoples eyes a little bit more. The 6-foot-1 Manziel threw for 3,419 yards and 24 touchdowns and ran for 1,181 yards and 19 more scores to help the Aggies win 10 games for the first time since 1998 and in their inaugural SEC year, too. Ryan Tannehill, Manziels predecessor now with the Dolphins after being drafted eighth overall this season, saw promise from the young quarterback last year when he was redshirted. But even he is surprised at how quickly things came together for Manziel. Its pretty wild. I always thought he had that playmaking ability, that something special where if somebody came free, he can make something exciting happen, Tannehill said. I wasnt really sure if, I dont think anyone was sure if he was going to be able to carry that throughout an SEC season, and hes shocked the world and he did it. After Manziel sat out as a redshirt in 2011, Texas A&Ms scheduled season-opener against Louisiana Tech this year was postponed because of Hurricane Isaac. That left him to get his first taste of live defense in almost two years against Florida. He responded well, helping the Aggies race to a 17-7 lead early using both his arm and his feet. The Gators shut down Manziel and A&Ms offense in the second half and Texas A&M lost 20-17. But Manziels performance was enough for Texas A&Ms coaching staff to realize that his scrambling ability was going to be a big part of what the Aggies could do this season. The first half really showed that I was a little bit more mobile than we had seen throughout the spring, Manziel said. Me and (then-offensive coordinator) Kliff Kingsbury sat down and really said: Hey we can do some things with my feet as well as throwing the ball. And it added a little bit of a new dimension. Manziel knew that the biggest adjustment from playing in high school to college would be the speed of the game. Exactly how quick players in the SEC were was still a jolt to the quarterback. The whole first drive I was just seeing how fast they really flew to the ball and I felt like they just moved a whole lot faster, he said of the Florida game. It was different than what I was used to, different than what I was used to in high school. So it was just having to learn quick and adjust on the fly. He did just that and started piling up highlight reel material by deftly avoiding would-be tacklers to help the Aggies run off five consecutive wins after that. His storybook ride hit a roadblock when he threw a seasonhigh three interceptions in a 24-19 loss to LSU. But Manziel used it as a learning experience, taking to heart some advice he received from Kingsbury. He just told me to have a plan every time, before every snap, Manziel said. Make sure you have a plan on what you want to do and where you want to go with the ball. I feel like as the year went on, I just learned the offense more and knew exactly where I wanted to go, instead of maybe evading the blitz and just taking off running for the first down instead of hitting a hot route or throwing it underneath to an open guy and doing things a lot simpler and cleaner. The Aggies and Manziel rebounded from the loss to LSU by winning their last five games, highlighted by their stunning 2924 upset of top-ranked Alabama on Nov. 10. By the time Manziel wrapped up a 253-yard passing and 92-yard rushing performance to lead Texas A&M to the victory in Tuscaloosa, you could hardly call him a freshman anymore. Associated Press Texas A&M redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel added another award to his list of accomplishments Tuesday after being named The Associated Press Player of the Year.

Both did some convincing Sunday when the Falcons shut out the Super Bowl champion New York Giants 34-0 and the Texans dominated the Indianapolis Colts 29-17. Quite a statement, first shutout registered vs. defending Super Bowl champ since 1981, Chris Berman of ESPN said of Atlanta. J.J. Watt is a wrecking crew, Sporting News Clifton Brown said of the Texans. Theyll be tough at home in January. Green Bay remained sixth after clinching the NFC North with a win over the rival Chicago Bears. The Packers are getting healthier and poised for a run, said John Lynch of Fox Sports. Greg Jennings and Clay Matthews are back, Charles Woodson and Jordy Nelson on the way? K Mason Crosby will need to put his so-far awful 2012 behind him for the Pack to get where they want to be. The Seahawks, after a second straight 50-point game, moved up a spot to seventh. Verlato put part of the blame for the outcome on him. My goal was to get everybody in, he said. Looking back, it might have interrupted the teams chemistry there. Citrus attacker Joshua Marsden had two goals in the game, including a rebound off his own shot with eight minutes left in the game to start the rally. He has 10 goals on the season. Im just proud of them, Marsden said of his teams effort. We could have easily let this game slip by us. The Pirates trailed early after Marsdens first goal of the game on a send from forward Rudy Salazar at the 37:50 mark of the first half. Keeping its composure, Crystal River responded five minutes later when John McAteer and Citrus goal keeper Alan Verone collided after McAteer fired a shot. McAteer quickly got up and put home the rebound to tie up the score; teammate Zach Brown had the assist. Travis Swanson netted his 22nd goal of the game on a free kick with 11:16 remaining in the half for the 2-1 lead. Pirates defender Andrew Dyakon scored on an indirect free kick with 23:57 left in the second half. Swanson laid the ball off to Dyakon, who blasted the shot past the Canes wall and Verone. Verone finished with 11 saves on 14 Pirate shots. With Crystal River seemingly in control late, things quickly turned with Marsdens goal from a deflection off a Pirates defender past backup goal keeper Aaron Molinero. Kidd was brought back in after the goal, but with 2:10 left in the game, forward Austin Wilcoxin found Salazar unmarked in front of the goal and he beat Kidd low left to make the score 3-3. With the sound of the final whistle, Crystal River players were visibly frustrated, with several remarking, We cant finish a game. With the district playoffs looming in another month, Verlato is concerned not closing out games will get into his players heads during the holiday break. Are they mentally going to be alright? Are they going to be mentally defeated before they take the field? Verlato asked. whistle blew in the opening half, Lecanto (12-4-1 overall, 7-2-1 district) maintained control of the ball and barraged Springstead goalkeeper Emma Betters (nine saves). Betters worked hard to stop many of the 14 shots Lecanto put on frame, but a noticeably swifter Panther front line made the job a tough one to continue. Scoring twice in the first half, the Panthers held the Eagles (6-2-1 overall, 4-2 district) scoreless at the break. Lecantos Kate Haberle scored a running one-timer off teammate Jessica Allens perfectly placed pass in the eighth minute to grab the lead for the Panthers. Brittney Putney followed with a goal (her ninth of the season) in the 20th minute Putney dribbled past two defenders on her way to blasting a shot out of reach of Betters in the top right corner. Chloe Benoist (two goals) scored her ninth goal of the season as well in the 45th minute. Proving why she takes the majority of her teams corner kicks, Benoist curved a 25-yard shot into the goalkeepers hands. The shot had so much spin on it, though, that Betters couldnt hold on to it and it popping free and into the net. Benoist nabbed her 10th goal in the 69th minute, putting the game out of Springsteads reach while teammate Taylor Christian (moving up from defense to the striker position) scored her fifth goal of the season just four minutes earlier in response to Springstead scoring its lone goal in the game. Lecanto goalkeeper Meagan Houpt (seven saves) nearly claimed a clean sheet in the game if not for Springsteads Samantha Betters goal off a penalty kick. Even when they got that PK on us, we didnt drop our heads, we continued playing, Lattin said of the penalty kicks impact. We took advantage of our opportunities. We didnt have a lot of shots but we were able to capitalize on what we got. Panther midfielder Breanna Martin performed well in the backfield and up front, forcing many strikes in Eagle territory. It was good to win against (Springstead) because they beat us 4-0 (last time) and we beat them 5-1 (this time), Martin said. Our team worked well together and everyone passed and nobody gave up. We all played defense as a team and offense (as well), Martin continued. That was probably our best game of the season. No (one) gave up on their game. Panthers. That, however, was the high point of the game for Lecanto. Five points from Lindsay Connors and four apiece by Shenelle Toxen and Treleasha Simmons, built around eight Lecanto turnovers, keyed a 17-0 run that buried the Panthers below a 34-14 avalanche. It never got any better for Lecanto, which trailed 39-18 at the half and scored a meager 10 points on just two baskets in the second half. It was an important game for us because its a district game, said Toxen, who finished with 11 points. And theyre a county rival, which just adds to it. We played very good as a team. Everyone played together. Asked if her team knew how to play at perhaps a slower, more deliberate pace, Toxen replied, No. We always give our best no matter who the opponent is. That attitude was evident even when the starters had all been pulled in the fourth quarter. With bench players from both sides prevalent on the floor, the final 11 points of the game went to Citrus helped, again, by four Lecanto turnovers. The Panthers would end the game with 30 turnovers. We have to get better, said Lecanto coach Brittany Szunko, her team slipping to 4-10 overall, 1-4 in district. We have to execute. Were altering our goals to fit what we can achieve. I still think we can be a force in the district. The Lecanto plan in place included an inside game that relied on isolating the smaller Hurricane players on the bigger Panthers. Lob passes inside during the second quarter, however, went awry, leading to turnovers. In the second half, Lecanto went back to its three-point shooting, which while often a powerful weapon, was not in this game: The Panthers did not convert a single threepointer. Shally Morales topped Citrus with 12 points, 10 in the fourth quarter. Toxen had 11, Connors netted 10, Micah Jenkins scored nine and Liz Lynch finished with eight. Richards 11 points was best for Lecanto. Miranda Barber was next highest with six. Citrus plays next at Crystal River on Friday. Lecanto is idle until its own Holiday Classic, when it hosts North Marion on Dec. 27. On Monday at Lecanto, the Panthers lost 48-46 to Brooksville Central. Richards and Straight paced Lecanto with 13 points apiece. the lead at 27-23, but Crystal River was victorious in the next three matches. The Pirates Dylan Ayala a previous state qualifier defeated Chris Ewing in three periods by a 12-6 score in the 160-pound class. Eddie Bennis (170-pound class) defeated Nicholas Noland by way of secondperiod pin at the 1:20 mark, and Andrew Bilby (182pound class) quickly pinned Derrick Steele to give Crystal River a comfortable 4223 cushion. Lecanto didnt throw in the towel though, as it won the final two matches. Jonah Nightengale (195-pound class) pinned Carlos Sanabria in the third period, and George Steele of the 220-pound class won quickly with a first-period pin against Mitch Foster just 13 seconds into the battle. Brandon Martin (heavyweight) began the match with a first-period pin of Hector Arroyo to give the Pirates a 6-0 lead, but the Panthers scored the next 17 points as Austin Hartman (106-pound class) defeated Tristan Corbett in a tough match to pull the Panthers within one. It was a great match, Martin said. The team performed well. The coaches help us ... and we have a lot of hours of work ahead. It was tough ... Im happy. Crystal River had a forfeit in the 113-pound class, and Jonathan Fillinger defeated Kris Caballo for a 17-6 lead. Michael Allen a Citrus transfer downed Ruben Gonzalez 15-4 (three periods) in the 126-pound class, as the Pirates went on to score the next 21 points of the match. We bumped some guys around to get competitive matches, Lecanto head coach Scot Roberts said. It was a good show for the crowd. We wrestle them again in January .... congrats to coach Frederick.

Along with the recognition come copious career improvements. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It could be the fateful time when some of your past efforts will be coming home to roost. Youll quickly discover all that hard work youve done will not have been in vain. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Although you might have to once again deal with a matter that has given you much trouble, this time experience and wisdom are on your side. Youll come out ahead. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Resurrecting an old enterprise that you were once quite enthusiastic about might be a good idea. Youll be glad you didnt scrap it, because you now possess the missing pieces. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Youre likely to do much better working with some trusted and competent intermediaries than handling a ticklish problem all on your own. Its smart to use all of your resources. Aries (March 21-April 19) This might be the best day of the week to spend some time on one of your more meaningful objectives, so try to do so.

Be sure to think things out fully if you expect success. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Trying to quietly go about doing good deeds without drawing any attention to it is a laudable goal. However, once word gets out, and it will, everyone will know of your kindness. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Something youve wanted to accomplish isnt a lock, but its not as complex as youve led yourself to believe, either. Youll quickly find this out once you tackle it. The house is closed FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer NEW YORK Train wreck. Thats what I hear, again and again, when I ask people why they watch Jersey Shore. Its such a train wreck! they chortle. I nod blankly and change the subject. Am I missing the essential train-wreckiness that has made Jersey Shore such an audiencepleasing, buzz-generating hit? Or is my immunity to its charms explained simply by the fact that if I wanted to watch a train wreck, Id choose a swifter railroad? But this will all be moot soon. After three years and six seasons of boozy, rowdy wrecktitude, Jersey Shore concludes its MTV run Thursday at 10 p.m. EST. Can it really be just three years since Snooki and memes like smoosh and G.T.L. drilled their way into our consciousness? Since a group of millenial party animals challenged Speaker of the House John Boehner as the nations reigning orange public figure? Did Barbara Walters really include the Jersey Shore gang among her Most Fascinating People list in 2010? (Did she figure that the full cast of eight might add up to a single fascinating person?) These, and so many other questions, will be deferred for anyone who might be mulling them, after Thursday. For the moment, it suffices to just marvel at this phenomenon, which convened these housemates four brawny dudes, four bosomy gals at the Jersey Shore (and elsewhere as the series wore on), then, with cameras rolling, turned them loose to be themselves and get their dumb on. Theres been plenty of G.T.L. (gym, tanning, laundry) during the shows run. Plus drinking and messing around, of course, and random stabs at verbal self-expression. (Mike The Situation Sorrentino: I got the shirt, but I aint wearing the shirt when I go out. This is the shirt before the shirt.) I can guess why anthropologically inclined viewers might have taken to Jersey Shore. Here is an opportunity to study a primitive life form as it feeds, mates and struggles to communicate. (Ronnie Ortiz-Magro: Why do you even bother? Youre only gonna get it six times as worse!) Viewers must have found something infectious about the hiccupy shooting style, and the background music that telegraphs (if by telegraph you mean whacked in the head by a twoby-four) the tone of each scene comic, emotional, outrageous, dramatic so viewers never have to give the show more than a fraction of their attention. Whatever, Jersey Shore caught on big, attracting nearly 9 million viewers at its peak. At the same time, it undid decades of headway by Bruce Springsteen in ennobling his native state, forever cementing its status as a punch line. (Filming of the series wrapped before Hurricane Sandy, with its many victims and heroes, reminded everyone that New Jersey isnt defined by a handful of cameracrazy beachside interlopers.) The show didnt do a lot to burnish the image of ItalianAmericans, either, as the cast let it all hang out with time-worn stereotypes. (Deena Nicole Cortese: Its like fingerprints: How are you going to tell a guidette apart without her extensions?) And it made the cast members with skills barely advanced beyond strutting, scrapping, carousing and mangling the Kings English into stars. Thus were these high-wattage dim bulbs instantly deprived of their last shreds of authenticity as nobodies with nothing to lose, their status at the outset of the series. Now the housemates of Jersey Shore can look back proudly at their accomplishments. They have all done their part to lower the bar, even as they stumbled over it. And they have enjoyed a dream job. They got paid to party. And the bigger the spectacle they made of themselves, the greater their appeal and, presumably, the fatter their paychecks. (Paul DJ Pauly D DelVecchio: One minute you got three girls in the Jacuzzi, the next minute somebodys in jail.) But the time has come to say goodbye. Or not. The Season Two premiere of Snooki & JWoww (starring Jersey Shore alumnae Nicole Elizabeth Snooki Polizzi and Jenni JWoww Farley) is just around the corner. From the press release: Fans will see Nicole prepare to become a firsttime mom, from nesting to going into labor and ultimately, get to see the first footage of her new son, Lorenzo. Thats Jan. 8. Mark your calendar. And in the indeterminate future, MTV plans to launch The Show with Vinny, which MTV calls a hybrid talk/reality show that will shatter the typical talkshow format by taking the biggest celebrities out of the studio and into Vinny Guadagninos family home in Staten Island, N.Y. Alas, certain members of this cast could have the half-life of plutonium. Meanwhile, MTV is moving ahead with a new gang of wildand-crazy kids. Buckwild premieres Jan. 3 with a group of nine rebellious twenty-somethings living in West Virginia. Thats all ahead. But looking back as Jersey Shore exits, the question persists: Why? Maybe people watched Jersey Shore because it was a welcome, wacky liberation. A break from the confines of parents, kids, partner, boss. Within their world, the Jersey Shore housemates have been privileged to serve as your surrogate id, treating you to visions of irresponsibility while sparing you from its costs whether embarrassment, a hangover or an STD. Call Jersey Shore a train wreck, then, albeit with no casualties. But does that beat a show that really takes you somewhere? Cruise returning to Pittsburgh PITTSBURGH Tom Cruise is heading to Pittsburgh for a scaleddown screening of his new action movie, Jack Reacher, after it was postponed over the weekend because of the deadly school shooting in Connecticut. Fridays shooting in Newtown, Conn., left 20 children and six adults dead at the school, along with the gunman and his mother. Paramount Pictures then postponed the Saturday U.S. premiere of the movie, which was filmed in Pittsburgh and is set to open Dec. 21. The studio said Cruise will return to Pittsburgh on Wednesday to screen Jack Reacher for fans. It said there wont be a red carpet but Cruise will introduce the film. The showing will be for previously confirmed guests. Deschanel finalizes divorce LOS ANGELES A judge has finalized Zooey Deschanels divorce from her rocker husband of roughly three years. Court records show a judge finalized the actress divorce from Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Gibbard and Deschanel, who stars in Foxs New Girl, were married in September 2009. They had no children. The actress filed for divorce in December 2011 after separating two months earlier. Deschanel was nominated last week for a Golden Globe for her work on New Girl. Tatum and wife expecting baby NEW YORK The Sexiest Man Alive will soon be a sexy dad. Actor Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum are expecting their first child in 2013, their reps confirm. The news was first reported by People. com, which named Tatum the Sexiest Man Alive in November. The couple, who recently co-starred in the film Years, met on the 2006 dance film Step Up, and wed in 2009. Besides a baby, the new year will be a busy year for the parents-to-be. Tatum has at least four movies in the works while Dewan-Tatum appears in this season of American Horror Story: Asylum and has a TV movie called She Made Them Do It premiering Dec. 29 on Lifetime.

As Eric Visser began thinking a few summers back about how hed cover his personal expenses now that he was about to become a college student, he turned to an unlikely source his car. Visser, who lives in the Muskegon area, had already scraped together enough money to pay tuition by the time he headed to Western Michigan University in fall 2011. But knowing that covering the cost of gas would be another hurdle, Visser sold his Mitsubishi Eclipse, bought a 1998 diesel-powered Volkswagen Jetta and converted it to run on vegetable oil. Its come in especially handy since he transferred to Cornerstone University and now commutes from home to school five days a week. Im saving about $1,500 a year, so its a really good return on investment, said Visser, 19. Tuition and fees at Cornerstone this school year amount to $23,260. Visser, whos studying to be an accountant, got the idea from a friend who rigged his vehicle to run on the oil. He was fascinated by the process but it wasnt until he sensed how much college would pinch his finances that he decided to follow suit. I said My goodness, college is going to cost a fortune. Im doing so much to pay for college, but Im spending all this money on fuel for my car. Converting his car to run on vegetable oil cost around $1,500, a price that includes a fuel kit, a fuel tank located in his trunk and electronics. It took him two days to install the kit, which allows him to flip a switch to begin using the oil to power his See OIL / Page C4 Associated Press To reduce his fuel expenses, college student Eric Visser converted a diesel-powered Volkswagon Jetta to run on vegetable oil.

Students read poems and stories, sang songs and handed out Christmas cookies to about 25 residents of the facility.

Theyre giving back to the community and putting a smile on someones face, Bockiaro said. Plus, the children learn to speak in public and present themselves well.

When the 508 Southern University students walk across the graduation stage Friday, ready to start new chapters in their lives, among them will be two young men hailed by the school as academic prodigies. Ronald Alexander started taking college-level courses at 15 years old before enrolling at Southern at age 16. His friend and fellow physics major, Polite Stewart Jr., began his university career at age 14. When they receive their diplomas during Southerns fall commencement, the pair will share the distinction of being two of the youngest graduates in Southerns history. Stewart, 18, entered Southern four years ago to much fanfare. He was under a microscope as his classmates learned of the student on campus who was too young to drive or see an R-rated movie alone. Stewart, who lived off campus during his four years at Southern, said he adjusted fairly easily. The attention I got died down pretty quickly, he said.

are sometimes cooler, his lab functions much as a regular library does. The library is a huge collection of books, some of them very expensive and rare, where you can walk in the door and get access to them and to the expertise needed to navigate and understand them, he said. Our collections are a bit different. We deal with hardware and software, and if someone comes in and says I have a 3-D model and I want to make a physical version of this, we have the expertise to help them. Six staff members and 12 students work together in the lab, which receives its primary operating funds from the library system. The centers budget is enhanced with grant money from collaborative projects with faculty and students, including a current $600,000 grant project programming a mobile game for people recovering from spinal cord injuries. A wide variety of people come to the lab, which offers a range of services that includes 3-D printing, 3-D imaging and mobile-app development. In order to print something in three dimensions, special machines take a digital model of the product and build it layer by layer. This molding process allows for printing parts within parts with no assembly required. This modeling is done for students and faculty for only the cost of materials. Prints cost 40 cents per cubic centimeter of material plus a $20 build fee. Maslowski said the lab printed about 6,000 prototypes and sculptures over the past year. One of my favorites that we made is a mold of a childs nose that surgeons use to practice removing peanuts from, he said. The only noses they could acquire were adult noses, so we took MRI data from a childs nose and made this model, now they can practice all they want. The lab also has the ability to move in the other direction, creating digital images of physical objects. Shawn OGrady, the labs digital fabrication guru, explained that a hand-held scanner can take anything from a golf ball to a fender and create a perfect 3-D digital rendering. The scanner was taken to South Africa to scan a dinosaur track site, Maslowski said. They used to go down with a lot of plaster making materials. but plaster has a high risk of cracking or being damaged. In this case, they went down with the scanner and walked away with all of the data on USB drives. With it in digital form they were able to send it to whoever wanted it and print out molds in different materials. The lab, founded in 2002 out of the imaging technology group, is using that same ability to create detailed 3-D renderings to digitally preserve artifacts owned by the university. Michigan has a very large collection of rare artifacts, and only about 10 percent are ever visible to the public at any one time, Maslowski said. If we can capture those and make digital models, they can much more easily be shared with people who want to use them for research or others to just see what they look like. Even with all of these impressive technologies, the crown jewel of the lab is clearly MIDEN. Stepping into the cube while wearing special 3-D glasses with motion markers and an X-Box controller allows you to float through the air in a perfect scale model of the new Yost Ice Arena, glide through a visualization of data connecting different defective genes to hereditary diseases, or even paint in three dimensions. Despite the incredible images and experiences that are already possible, Maslowski and Hall are not satisfied with their room. They say the next step is a more integrated experience. Soon youll be able to interact in a very real way with the virtual world we create around you without wearing any sort of motion markers, Maslowski said. We have a student who developed a system that uses the Microsoft Kinect, so youll be able to go in there and have objects bounce off any part of your body and really interact with the ecosystem around you. The lab holds an open house on the second Friday of every semester where it showcases all of its technologies and services, including the MIDEN, 3-D imaging and motion capturing. The next one will be in January 2013.

Eric Maslowski 3-D lab manager. He traces his love for academics to the dinosaur books his father bought him as a young child. Later, as a toddler, Stewart said he began watching scientific documentaries where his interest in herpetology, entomology and paleontology grew. I was pretty much interested in all the sciences, he said. Now, barely an adult, Stewart has set his sights on a career in biological and physical engineering. He spent last summer doing research at North Carolina State University, where he worked on developing self-cleaning, antiglare glass coated with anti-reflective material and designed to repel oils and water. After continuing his research in a post-grad program next summer, Stewart said he will start graduate school at one of a number of colleges that have shown interest. His mother, Ava Stewart, isnt surprised by her sons success. His father and I could tell early on that he wanted information. There was an intensity in his focus. He started reading when he was three, she said. Ava and Polite Stewart Sr. began homeschooling their son shortly after he left daycare, she said. The couple enrolled him in different programs over the years to advance his learning and to let him be around other kids, she added. He was doing ninthgrade work at 10 years old; he took college credits at 12, she said. I didnt have any reservations when he started college. We had to let him go, we wouldve been holding him back. Southern physics professor Diola Bagayoko has mentored Stewart since he was around 12 years old, watching him progress academically and socially over the last six years. He said Stewart is destined for great things. He is a very brilliant young man lucky to have had highly responsible parents, Bagayoko said. Because of his capability and his focus, I believe hes set to do great things in science, technology and engineering. Alexander, 20, took a different path on his road to graduation. He said he enjoyed math beginning at a young age, started school at age 4, skipped the 7th grade, taught himself calculus in the 10th grade and then left Southern Laboratory School two years before his classmates. I always thought I would be a math major. I arbitrarily picked physics because it was math-related, but now I really like it, he said. Its a hard subject and I feel accomplished. I like seeing how quantum mechanics applies to life. Two summers ago, Alexander studied prostate brachytherapy at The Johns Hopkins University, in Baltimore, where he worked to develop computer algorithms used to study how tumors react when they are implanted with tiny radioactive particles. Last summer, Alexander was at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Cambridge, Mass., where he worked on building the elusive quantum computer, a theoretical device scientists believe will be faster and more efficient than todays digital computers. After choosing to live with his mother in Baker rather than on campus, Alexander, said he took to the university atmosphere right away. Skipping 7th grade was a bigger adjustment for me; college life I was OK with, he said. His mother, Pamela Jones-Alexander said she had some concerns about enrolling him in college at such a young age, but trusted his maturity. She said hed been enrolled in different academic programs throughout his life and knew how to handle himself. Hes used to a lot of structure and being around professional people, she said. I knew that he would surround himself with the right people. YOUNG Continued from Page C1 Associated Press Polite Stewart Jr., 18, left, and Ronald Alexander, 20, are poised to become two of the youngest graduates in Southern Universitys history in Baton Rouge, La.

He collects the substance from restaurant kitchens, which hand over 5-gallon jugs after emptying their deep fryers. In the summer, when tourists flock to the Muskegon area, giving restaurants a steady stream of customers, the oil is plentiful. Employees give him a call or send a text to let him know theres a batch ready for pickup. But as business slows down in the fall and winter, so does Vissers ability to get his hands on the product he needs most. It really is a stressful time, he said. Its a time you look around and try to find a new place to collect oil. Luckily, Visser doesnt spend much time behind the wheel in the summer, allowing him to stockpile as much as 55 gallons of the fuel in preparation for the school year. All that free fuel makes Visser reluctant to give up his sources. Thats something you keep on the down low, he said. Other people might steal your sources. While always appealing to a small minority of consumers, the number of people buying kits to run their vehicle on vegetable oil has dwindled in recent years as the economy took a downturn, said Justin Carven, who owns Massachusettsbased Greasecar Vegetable Fuel Systems, which bills itself as one of the few businesses in the nation that specialize in selling fuel conversion kits. Its just one option thats going to have to be part of many options if were going to have any chance of fueling our economy 50 to 100 years from now, said Carven, who over the past dozen years estimates hes sold 7,000 conversion kits. For Visser, getting the oil is only half the battle. Before it can be used, it must be filtered, a process where gunk and food debris is separated from the substance. It takes about an hour to do five gallons. It sometimes smells bad and is a little nasty, he said. Still, he says its more than worth the effort. Associated Press Eric Visser, a student at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Mich., commutes from his home near Muskegon. To reduce his fuel expenses, he purchased a diesel powered Volkswagen Jetta and converted it to run on vegetable oil. OIL Continued from Page C1 Google launches Dead Sea Scrolls online library Associated PressJERUSALEM More than six decades since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls and thousands of years after they were written Israel on Tuesday put 5,000 images of the ancient biblical artifacts online in a partnership with Google. The digital library contains the Book of Deuteronomy, which includes the second listing of the Ten Commandments, and a portion of the first chapter of the Book of Genesis, dated to the first century B.C. Israeli officials said this is part of an attempt by the custodians of the celebrated manuscripts often criticized for allowing them to be monopolized by small circles of scholars to make them broadly available. Only five conservators worldwide are authorized to handle the Dead Sea Scrolls, said Shuka Dorfman, director of the Israel Antiquities Authority. Now, everyone can touch the scroll on screen around the globe. Last year, Google partnered with the Israel Museum to put five scrolls online. The scrolls, considered one of the most significant archaeological finds of the 20th century, are thought to have been written or collected by an ascetic Jewish sect that fled Jerusalem to the desert 2,000 years ago and settled at Qumran, near the shore of the Dead Sea. The hundreds of manuscripts found in caves near the site have shed light on the development of the Hebrew Bible and the origins of Christianity. Google says the new digital library took two years to assemble, using technology first developed by NASA. The multimedia website allows users to zoom in on various fragments, with translations and Google maps alongside. Google hopes to further expand its project. Two months ago, Google launched a Cultural Institute, a digital visual archive of historical events in cooperation with 17 museums and institutes around the world. Were working to bring important cultural and historical materials online and help preserve them for future generations, said Yossi Matias, head of Googles Research and Development Center in Israel. Our partnership with the Israel Antiquities Authority is another step toward enabling users to enjoy cultural material around the world. Associated Press A worker at the Dead Sea Scrolls conservation laboratory at the Israel Antiquities Authority holds a frame with small fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls Tuesday in a laboratory in Jerusalem. Israeli authorities have put 5,000 fragments of the ancient Dead Sea scrolls online in a partnership with Google.
