A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterFLORAL CITY Inverness resident Grant Doyle remembers feeling a sense of disquiet when he saw a sheriffs patrol vehicle parked in the driveway of a home that has given him and his family a resplendent bit of Christmas cheer in the past. And, his alarm was confirmed later that evening when he and his wife drove by 1308 Old Floral City Road: the Christmas lights and decorations that had lit up that slice of the neighborhood werent there. A sign with a spotlight on it read something like the family had to discontinue their display due to vandalism. We both just hung our heads, Doyle said. Our children, who live in Volusia County, also love driving by that house whenever they come to visit, he said. News of the vandalism made Doyle write a letter to the editor of the Chronicle, which helped rally the community around the family behind the display Paul and Melissa Dickinson. The Dickinsons said they have taken a lot of pride throughout the years sometimes beginning in October adorning their yard with generations of colorful fixtures. I have four generations of decorations. My grandmother used to love doing this, Mrs. Dickinson said. But early Dec. 15, the family was informed by a neighbor something was amiss in the yard. Upon examination, the family found a mess. Vandals had uprooted many of the displays and those they couldnt remove they kicked and stomped. Among the items damaged include a prized train fixture Mrs. Dickinson inherited from her grandmother. We have a Christmas tree made out of rod and LED lights, which they tried to remove, but they couldnt. My husband had it in such a way it was difficult to remove. The whole thing was quiet disheartening, Dickinson said. She said it was then the family decided to put a sign in the yard saying they were discontinuing the display. But within 24 hours, the community responded, Dickinson said. People began dropping off decorations and money telling us they want us to keep the display going, Dickinson said. So, we went out there and flipped the sign around and wrote a thank you on it and began putting up the decorations again.

At Christmas 2010, Rick and Amanda Williams and their four young children were at the lowest point of their lives. They had moved to Florida from Maryland in 2008 with dreams of a better life. Rick Williams, who did flooring work, had heard jobs were plentiful. They moved to Polk County and were living the Florida dream in a fully-furnished home with a pool and then a series of unimaginable events happened that basically left them destitute, living in storefronts and campers, with Rick working at whatever job he could to feed his family. At one point, they lived in the Ocala National Forest and Williams traveled at 4 a.m. every morning to Homosassa to clean the WinnDixie, earning $40 a day, which cost him $20 a day for gas. But $20 was $20, and they needed every penny. Through it all, they never lost hope, never lost faith. They prayed God would lead them and keep them together. Just before Christmas 2010, Amanda Williams told the Chronicle Its difficult to keep your faith when one thing after another happens and youre always worried about how youre going to survive. But something has always come along just when weve needed it. Rick Williams had said, As a dad, Im trying to support my family ... I just want my family to have everything they wish for. For the Williams family, their biggest wish has always been for Rick to be a cop. This past Thursday, the 35-yearold Williams completed his final class at the law enforcement program at Withlacoochee Technical Institute and is eagerly waiting to take the state officers certification exam. Then he can start applying for a job. His dream: to be a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy. Two years ago, we were coming through the hardest time of our lives, Williams said recently from the Homosassa mobile home they are presently buying. After the story came out (in 2010), help poured in money and food cards and gifts for the kids. It was awesome, Mrs. Williams said. MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Amanda Williams holds her 9-year-old daughter Shyanne last week. The two, along with the rest of their family, are on the upswing after a series of unfortunate happenings. See FAMILY / Page A4 Holiday un-Grinched MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Melissa and Paul Dickinson work in their Inverness yard last week to replace Christmas decorations following a weekend incident in which vandals ransacked their yard and destroyed many of their decorations. Vandals fail to foil Christmas spirit for one neighborhood in Floral City Airports aim for terminal bliss Associated PressCHICAGO Getting stranded at an airport once meant enduring hours of boredom in a kind of travel purgatory with nothing to eat but fast food. These days, it can seem more like passing through the gates of Shangri-la to find spas, yoga studios, luxury shopping and restaurant menus crafted by celebrity chefs in terminals with calming, sleek design. Stung by airline bankruptcies and mergers, more U.S. airports are hunting for alternative revenue streams by hiring top design firms to transform once chaotic and dreary way stations into places of Zen-like tranquility and luxury where people actually want to get stuck and spend money. As the holiday travel season is in full gear, airports are putting what one designer calls terminal bliss on display in hopes of drawing in higher passenger numbers and revenue. Its classy, its very classy. ... It makes you feel good about the layover, said Marty Rapp, 70, who was getting rosy cheeked last week with the help of a large glass of merlot under ice-crystal chandeliers at Chicago-OHares Ice Bar, whose white and softly reflective decor gives the feeling of being secluded in an igloo where everyone is drinking and merry. See AIRPORTS / Page A5 See HOLIDAY / Page A2 Bill McBride dies at 67 MIAMI Bill McBride, the Florida Democrat who defeated Janet Reno for the partys gubernatorial nomination in 2002 but lost to Republican Gov. Jeb Bush, has died at the age of 67. His wife Alex Sink said Sunday that McBride suffered a fatal heart attack Saturday while visiting with family in Mount Airy, N.C. Sink was the Democratic nominee for governor in 2010, losing to now-Gov. Rick Scott. The couple lived outside of Tampa. Sink said McBride, an attorney, had long suffered from heart problems. McBride defeated Reno, who was U.S. attorney general under President Bill Clinton, in the Democratic primary to run against Bush. Before entering politics, he was managing partner at the prestigious Holland & Knight law firm. From wire reports 000DJKN

She thanked those who showed concern, saying they truly inspired us to continue on with Christmas and put the Christmas spirit in all of our hearts after the decorations disaster. Area resident Morgan Googe said her parents, Lynn Burkhalter and Brad Wasson, were some of the first donors to the Dickinsons after getting wind of the news. It was so sad to see the sign that said they were not going to do the decorations, but just as quickly, it was great to see the community come together for the family, Googe said. Frequent driver-by Doyle said he knew it took a lot of dedication for Mr. Dickinson, who is wheelchairbound, to go out in October and begin the painstaking work. I realized that Christmas is what he looks forward to each year. It took him several days to get everything set up and I watched his yard every time I passed, Doyle wrote to the Chronicle Doyle continued by expressing his glee at seeing the new decorations up and concluded by writing: I tip my hat to that man in the wheelchair. He not only does not let his physical situation get in the way, he wont let the vandals take away his spirit Merry Christmas, dude! Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Christmas is for seniors, too. Just in time to help replenish the pantry shelves of Citrus United Basket (CUB), last week Phyllis Rimes, the director of business development for SunCrest/OMNI Home Health in Homosassa, presented Deborah Rossfeld, CUB executive director, with 284 pounds of non-perishable food from the agencys Soup for Seniors campaign. In the past weve contributed toys for Toys for Tots, which benefits CUB, but we wanted to do something for seniors this time, Rimes said. With the economy the way it is, we thought collecting soup for seniors would fit right in with what CUB is doing and also because much of what we do is geared toward serving seniors. Part of what SunCrest/OMNI Home Health does includes providing skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical social worker and home health aide care. Rossfeld said increasingly, CUB helps more seniors with food and was visibly appreciative of the Soup for Seniors donation, which included much more than soup. Rimes said the donation was a gift not just from SunCrest/OMNI Home Health, but from their many partnering referral sources local physicians, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities and others. Its our way to give back to the community and benefit the people we serve, the seniors, Rimes said. ChronicleHomeowners who have gone all-out to decorate the exterior of their homes for the holidays and arent opposed to motorists taking a spin by their homes to see their handiwork include: A winter wonderland is on North DeLeon Avenue in Beverly Hills five blocks west of Forest Ridge Boulevard (Beverly Hills Library is the landmark) and Roosevelt Avenue. Multiple houses in a row are decorated and look like one big house. A single residence decorated beautifully is at 7776 E. Fort Cooper Road. Take Old Floral City Road to Fort Cooper to the end on the right. A house and yard decorated with Christmas lights and figures is at 8154 W. Pine Bluff St., Crystal River, in the Citronelle area. Pine Bluff Street is off Citrus Avenue (C.R. 495), about 6 miles north of U.S. 19; or a half-mile south of Dunklin Street. The street is on the west side of Citrus Avenue and it is the first house on the left. A familys Christmas light display has a computer-controlled tree with thousands of lights blinking to music; all kinds of lighted, animated reindeer on a teeter totter; a slide; a merry-go-round; a Santa train with spinning wheels and moving grid of lights on the ground; a full nativity scene; and an inflated Santa, Frosty the Snowman, and penguins. The address is 8483 W. Highland St., Homosassa. The house is off U.S. 19 south of the airport and The Home Depot. It is the road next to the Nissan dealership on U.S. 19 across the street from the Key Training Thrift Store. It is the fifth house on the left before the hill. The Christmas light display comes on every evening from 7 to 11 p.m. A house dressed up for Christmas is at 8039 N. Golfview Drive, Citrus Springs. Golfview is the road that turns off the main road (Elkcam), which is the road the golf and country club is on. A home in Connell Heights subdivision at 904 N. Lyle Ave., Crystal River, is decorated. Coming from Crystal River, go past Rock Crusher Canyon Road. Turn right before Key Training Center on State Road 44. Coming from Inverness, turn left past Key Training Center on S.R. 44. A home in Hunters Ridge in Crystal Oaks is adorned for Christmas. Access to the gated community is off Crystal Oaks Drive. Visitors need to enter #44 on the access pad. The homeowners phone rings, who can open the gate. Enter, turn left and left again into the culde-sac at the bottom of the hill. The light show lasts about 10 minutes and can be heard on the car radio at the FM station shown in front of the home.

On Wednesday, Inverness city clerk Debbie Davis and assistant to the city clerk Susan Jackson visited Key Center group homes in Inverness and on Thursday they spread holiday cheer in Lecanto 19 homes in all. Dressed in festive holiday attire, Davis and Jackson jingled sleigh bells as they approached each home and were greeted warmly. At Franklin Cottage at the Lecanto campus, Michael Giogi donned a Santa hat, opened the front door and raised his hands in excitement. Jason Isaacs, also at Franklin Cottage, hugged Jackson and Davis. It was much of the same at each home on the stop. A lot of the clients go to my church, First Baptist of Inverness, so I recognize some of their faces, Jackson said. Davis said funding for the Santa Stocking Squad project came from several organizations, including the Inverness Rotary Club, Inverness Kiwanis Club, Altrusa, Inverness Olde Towne Association, a local Bunco club and city employee donations. Walgreens donated toothpaste and local dentists provided toothbrushes. Walmart donated the stockings and Ferris Groves donated oranges. Each stocking was filled with toiletries and candies, plus a stuffed toy. It was just a fun thing that we at the city of Inverness did, Davis said.

E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerHERNANDO It was coolbrisk afternoon as Keith Roberts picked up a warm blanket off the table. With only a flannel coat and book bag on his back, he held his new blanket under one arm before being directed toward a collection of bicycles. Would you like a bicycle? asked New Church Without Walls Pastor Doug Alexander. He grinned in reply. Getting a bike means a lot to me, Roberts said. I will be using it for transportation. Roberts has been sleeping in his friends car. As the temperature plummets, he becomes quite cold at night. Receiving a blanket is valuable. Roberts was among an estimated 100 homeless needy men, women and children assembled Saturday on the grounds of Hernando Park for a Christmas dinner and giveaway. Many attended for various reasons such as food, clothing, toys, fellowship and much-needed supplies. We have toys for homeless and families in need, Alexander said. The community has come together to give to those in need. Overseeing the distribution of farm-fresh food from his organization, DuWayne Sipper said the vegetables were picked from the 10-acre field the morning of the event. The guys staying at the shelter want to give back, said Sipper, executive director of The Path. Its kind of weird, but that is how its working. They are here helping, but at the same time, they will probably take some bread back with them. The biggest thing about Christmas is not the presents, its the people gathering. Interaction with people is more important than the gifts. Inverness Walmart Supercenter store manager Larry Gamble had a permanent smile as he buzzed around the crowd. His company donated various camping items along with bicycles. Every year, we give out bikes to some people, Gamble said. To them, it is like winning a house key on Oprah. You know how excited they are. That is the same thing for these people. They cant get a job without some form of transportation. For them to walk a mile or two is hard. With a bike, they can do it easily and get out and get a job. Gamble brings his family every year so his children can gain a deeper appreciation for what they have. He recognizes a simple item can mean a lot to a person who needs it. A Ziploc bag to them is something that will keep their socks, hat or shirt dry when it is raining, Gamble said. Last year, we gave away five-gallon buckets, which are like dressers to them to put their belongings in. Gamble pointed out the word homeless is not solely for people who live in the woods. It means that you dont have your own roof over your head, or you live with your grandma, friend, mom or you live in someones garage, he said. So many different people need help. However, some Citrus County homeless do live in the woods. Alexander explained some will go to shelters to avoid the freezing temperatures, while others sleep outdoors. Some of people volunteering here today will take some homeless home, he said. There are a few tough guys in the woods (who) are not going to go with nobody. They have been through the cold before and they feel that they have everything they need with them. New Church Without Walls partnered with The Path of Citrus County and Walmart Supercenter in Inverness to host this years Christmas feeding at the park. In addition, Little Italy, Chef Anthonys Pizza Caf, Heidis Italian Restaurant, Toys for Tots, Pepperidge Farm, Ace Hardware and Taylor Rental joined together to help support the community. Along with providing hot meals, they gave away clothing, camping gear, blankets, Ziploc bags, bicycles, vegetables and food.

We were so behind, the money we got we gave to pay our back rent, but it was still really hard for a while. He was out of work until February. They had to move several times and they sold their gas-guzzling Suburban and bought a smaller car, which they call their clown car. Williams was approved for a Pell grant and accepted into the law enforcement program in April. He attended classes from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., then worked as a janitor at Citrus Memorial Health System from 5 to 11 p.m. Then he drove home to Homosassa to study and catch a few hours of sleep. They were managing and then Williams injured his knee while running and was on crutches and couldnt work. So, we got behind again, Mrs. Williams said. Then we met this wonderful man, Ken Koo, who were buying this house from. Hes an angel from heaven. Hes owner-financing for us, and in nine years or sooner we will own it. While still attending the law enforcement academy, Williams left his job at the hospital and was hired at the Key Training Center, where he helped establish the all-male behavioral home and worked there as residential manager. My training with the academy allowed me to utilize what I learned about anger management skills, he said. After a while, his schedule and workload got too demanding and he left the Key Center for a job at Sugarmill Manor assisted living facility as the maintenance director, a job he said he loves. He still works there now as he awaits the next steps in his quest to become a lawman. In Citrus County, more than anywhere else, the deputies are celebrities to kids, he said. They look up to them, and my kids are already telling their friends, My dads a cop. Hes going to drive me to school in a cop car. Mrs. Williams said her husband has wanted to be an officer for as long as she can remember. I think its in his blood, she said. He likes to get involved; he likes to help people, and seeing his dreams and goals come true is so awesome. My ideal goal for him is to become a detective. Toward that end, Williams is planning to start working on his associates degree this spring. Its been a struggle everyone struggles, he said as he reflected on the past two years. But we always knew we would be all right as long as were together. At times we werent sure why we were going through the things that happened to us and weve been disappointed, but we firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. So, whatever we go through, its going to be OK. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com or 352564-2927.

Airport redesign has been accelerating in the U.S. during the past 10 years, fueled by a combination of things like an airline industry beset by bankruptcies and consolidation that is less able to shoulder as much of the operating costs for cityowned airports through landing fees and gate rental. More revenue from better retail and dining helps make up the shortfall. At the same time, travelers are becoming savvier and want more than just to get from point A to point B. The airport has become almost a destination in its own right, a place worthy of stopping off for a while for a little shopping or pampering. Theres the ability to go swimming at some airports, theres the ability to actually perfect your golf swing at some airports, there is the ability to its not just getting a quick massage on your shoulders its almost really going to a spa in some cases, said Bill Hooper, an architect at global design firm Gensler, which has transformed airport terminals, including San Franciscos Terminal 2, whose abundant natural light, art installations and cool club feel set a new benchmark for contemporary airport design. The United States and Canada still lag behind Europe and Asia when it comes to the number of airports that are architectural gems and the array of unique offerings. Stockholms Arlanda Airport has a wedding package where couples can tie the knot in the control tower balcony. And Seouls Incheon International Airport is building a six-level terminal that will include a soaring glass-paneled ceiling giving passengers the feeling they are passing through a terrarium-like wonderland, complete with babbling brook, tropical plants and butterflies. But American airports are catching up. Space-agelooking redevelopment at Denver International Airport slated to be finished by 2015 includes a Westin hotel and conference center with a rooftop pool and views of the Rockies. With an outdoor plaza for events and a fast new rail line, the airport hopes to be seen as an extension of downtown, about 23 miles away. Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport opened a nearly mile-long walking path over mosaic floor art inside Terminal D in April. There are two optional cardio step courses leading up 55-foot high staircases, and the path ends up at a free yoga studio, where barefoot travelers with a view of taxiing aircraft can stretch behind light-diffusing screens. In a sense, airports have taken some of the membersonly airline club lounge experience and opened it up for all. Theyre actually trying to create the same sort of sanctuary concept for the more casual traveler, Hooper said. Business travelers in particular are catching on and actually choosing which airport they want to spend their layover in based on the offerings. Montreal (airport) has a smoked meat place ... that if Im booking travel and I need to go back on the East Coast, sometimes Ill say, Can you get me to Montreal for an hour layover so I can have a smoked beef sandwich? said Wil Marchant, 40, who works for a financial services firm in Winnipeg. The transformation is paying off. Concessions revenue from food, beverage, retail and services at U.S. airports hit $1.5 billion in 2011, up 12 percent from the year before, according to Airports Council International-North America, which represents the vast majority of governing bodies that own and operate commercial airports.

O PINION Page A6 MONDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2012 Take Stock gives thanks On behalf of our entire Take Stock in Children family, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to the WOW Water Aerobics Classes from the Dynabody Fitness Club. Many individuals, businesses, organizations and groups in our community helped make the Holiday Variety Show a huge success. Many thanks to those individuals who performed at the show: Citrus High Schools Category 5, Louie and Anna Oliveria, Take Stocks Rachel Wilkins and Rielly Smith, Judah Burton, Felicia and Phyllis Smith, Debbie Sosnicki, Ron Smith, Josh Ulloa, Bill Alston, John Graham, Bubba and Kat Russ. In addition, special thanks to the professionals who gave of their time, Crystal Wilson and the fabulous Lola and the Saints. This fundraising event would not have been possible without the support of many members of our incredible community: Dynabody Fitness Club, Cornerstone Baptist Church, Publix Supermarkets, McDonalds Inverness, 7th Heaven Salon, Via Viente, Shear Delight Hair & Nail Salon, Wendys Inverness, Suzi Mire and Shelby, Al and Emily Merbeth, Tracy Kramer and Allison, Tami Reneer and Cheyann, Sally and Ron Diericx, Ariana Gonzalez, Bonnie Easter and Riah, The Frugal Frog, Ink4Less, Goodfellows Barbershop, Susan Gill, Jamaica Jubilee and the Citrus County Chronicle Take Stock in Children was honored to be the recipient of the proceeds from this wonderful event. All proceeds donated through this event will be used to purchase scholarships for qualified youth in Citrus County Schools. To Ms. Ruby Burton and her water aerobics classes and to all those who attended the fundraiser and helped our scholars Reach for Success, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We feel so fortunate to live in such caring community! Pat Lancaster, program coordinator Take Stock in Children O n the day after the recent massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., police in Newport Beach, Calif., took a man into custody for allegedly firing more than 50 rounds from a semiautomatic handgun in the parking lot of a shopping mall. He aimed into the air and no one was hit, though one person was hurt slightly while running away. Police said 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola was destitute and frustrated with his circumstances. Firing dozens of rounds at the sky was his way of venting. If there is a more apt metaphor for where this nation now finds itself than some fool standing befuddled as bullets rain down about him, one finds it hard to imagine. Come, then. Let us weep for the 20 children shot to pieces by the young man who invaded their elementary school wielding semiautomatic weapons. Let us mourn for the six adults who could not save the children, could not save themselves, who died as the children died, shot multiple times at close range. Let us whisper our sorrows and shed our tears. Let us stagger against one another in our mountainous grief. Let us light our candles and leave them at makeshift shrines to be cared for by the uncaring sun and rain. But let us also understand these acts have no chance of producing anything of lasting consequence. Let us not pretend our sorrow in this moment means a thing changes, because it doesnt and wont. Not until or unless the American nation is finally willing to confront its unholy gun love. The parameters of this argument have not changed for generations. On the one side are people who enjoy hunting for sport or sustenance and people who, when bad guys come through the door, want to have more in their hands than just hands. They are, by and large, decent and responsible individuals who know and respect guns and resent any suggestion they are not trustworthy to own them. On the other side are equally decent and responsible people who think we ought to take reasonable steps to ensure children, emotionally disturbed individuals and violent felons have no access to guns, people who believe no hunter requires 30 rounds to bag a deer and no homeowner not expecting to be attacked by a band of ninjas has need of an AK47 to protect his or her property. There is, you will notice, nothing about one side of the argument that precludes the other. Reasonable people who had their countrys best interests at heart could have bridged the distance between the two many dead bodies ago. Such people are, unfortunately, in woefully short supply. What are rather more plentiful are lawmakers in thrall to the gun lobby and to an ideology that finds more to fear in a paranoid fantasy (jackbooted government thugs coming to seize your guns) than in an objective reality (innocent people repeatedly, senselessly, unnecessarily dying). Is this where that changes? Maybe. Certainly the magnitude of what happened in Newtown seems to have imposed a rare lucidity upon the debate. One sees Sen. Joe Manchin, conservative Democrat from West Virginia and a staunch ally of the NRA, calling for gun control, and it is cause for hope. Then one hears Sen. Joe Lieberman suggest video games may have played a role in the shooting. And Mike Huckabee said maybe it happened because the government no longer mandates prayer in schools. And Bob McDonnell, Virginias Republican governor, suggests the teachers should have been armed (as if the problem is there were too few guns in that school). And hope chokes. We have paid and continue to pay an obscene price for this lesson some of us obstinately refuse to learn. We paid it in Tucson, Ariz., and we paid it on the campus of Virginia Tech. We paid it at Columbine High and at a midnight showing of a Batman movie in Aurora, Colo. Weve paid it in Compton, Calif., Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Norcross, Ga. Weve paid it in Gilbert, Ariz., Bechtelsville, Pa., Prince Georges County, Md., Bay City, Texas, Copley, Ohio, Lauderdale Lakes and North Miami, Fla. Now we pay it in Newtown, in the blood of teachers and young children. We have paid more than enough. And our choice could not be more clear. We can harrumph and pontificate about how the problem is video games or the problem is a lack of prayer or the problem is too few guns. Or we can finally agree the problem is obvious: too many people who should not have guns do. Unless we achieve the simple courage to reach that consensus, nothing else we do will change anything. Let us weep, let us mourn. Let us whisper sorrow and shed tears. Meanwhile, frightened children return to school in Newtown. And bullets keep raining down.

Its a different way to look at things, and it seems to be working. One recent Friday morning, 56 community members interested in getting a better grip on their finances participated in a first-ever UWCC financial workshop at the College of Central Florida in Lecanto. The program featured a partnership of community resources, with information booths, short seminars on such topics as credit, lending and housing, plus one-on-one sessions with volunteer budget coaches. United Way CEO Amy Meek reported participants evaluations were uniformly positive. She said Citrus County residents lives were changed, because they attended, representing progress toward United Ways goal of real, lasting change. Participants worked with budget coaches on creating plans to identify all income and expenses and save at least $1 a day toward emergency funds, paying off bills and creating savings. The average planned savings for attendees was $93 monthly, Meek reported, and collectively they pledged to save $42,000 during 2013. About 30 participants also said they will return for a followup session in January to discuss how they did during the first month of their plan and identify what further resources or assistance they need. Happily, success stories are already emerging. One attendee secured extra parttime employment, which will help grow the household emergency fund more quickly. Someone else reported finding more than $50 in unnecessary expenditures monthly, which will add $600 to the savings fund next year. The University of Florida IFAS/County Extension program was a key player, providing training and materials from its Master Money Mentors program. Attendees have the opportunity to sign up to work with a trained mentor throughout the year. More mentors are needed: if youd like to volunteer, call program supervisor Monica Payne at the County Extension office, 352-527-5713. Financial literacy is not something we all just naturally understand; this program helped willing citizens take a major step toward financial independence. We applaud the effort and look forward to more United Way programs that offer a hand-up, not a hand-out. THE ISSUE: United Way works on root causes of financial instability.OUR OPINION: Great leadership to help citizens achieve financial independence.

There isnt hardly a day goes by that something isnt depressing in the newspapers child abuse, the robberies, the young kids getting in trouble in bars and the speeding on the highways. All they do is get negative attitudes in this country and its been going on for the past 10, 15 years. And then the parents are complaining; the parents arent home. Just time that we start having some happy days in life and start talking about happy things in our homes instead of everything being negative. Lets stop this. This is getting just ridiculous. Ive never in my life thought that Id be living in an era of this life here where everybody is putting down everybody and destroying what was good in our country 50, 60 years ago. We had some good times back 50 years ago. Go play soccer Hey, soccer mom and dad: Citrus County has a great soccer program and fields. Turn off your cellphones and iPhones while your kids are playing and watch them. Root for your kids, like me and others around you who dont care to hear cute ringtones and YouTube videos. Leave that for your friends at the mall. Your kids are right in front of you and theyre more important than your social life.Great boat paradeThank you to the sponsors and boat owners who took the time and the expense to decorate their boats for the people of Homosassa to enjoy. This was by far the best boat parade and very colorful. I have attended many since 2001. Thank you again for putting on this wonderful boat parade.Port productRegarding Port Citrus: The only boat product that I can think of that has a market in Citrus County and the surrounding area is gasoline and other oil products. That would involve bringing barging in, tank farms, etc. That would really be a nice addition to the Nature Coast, of course. But if you remember, when the barge canal was stopped, one of the major opposition groups was battling the barge canal about the possibility of oil spills, that along with the pollution. Great giveawaysI just wanted to say thank you to the Citrus County Chronicle for all the contests and giveaways they do throughout the year. Thank you very much.

Vandals rain on Christmas spirit I truly believe there exists within our society a very sinister element that lacks the necessary social graces afforded by responsible parenting and an educated childhood. Every year, just after Halloween, a couple who live on Old Floral City Road begins decorating their yard for Christmas. Some may think thats early; but as one who passes the house on a daily basis, I appreciate their effort and expense to spread holiday cheer. The yard display has grown each year with the addition of lighted figurines, inflatables, signs and lights. It is a wonderful display for all to enjoy while the homeowners incur the expense a very generous effort on their part. This past weekend they were paid a visit by vandals. Needless to say, the yard decorations, displays and lights were destroyed. The yard display now consists of damaged items they were able to salvage. Among the items displayed is a prominently posted apology advising vandals destroyed the display. These fine people, who did nothing more than try to spread holiday cheer, were put in the position of apologizing for the criminal acts of the vandals. These are humble people of true character. The apology, however, needs to come from the miscreants, the social misfits, the individuals lacking a proper upbringing (who) took it upon themselves to destroy a part of Christmas for all the rest of us. Unfortunately, as recent events in this country continue to demonstrate, we are experiencing the end result of misguided individuals who were not provided with social standards and who think of nothing more than illicit gain and total destruction of societal standards. Ignorance and intolerance seem to be their watchword and anything that gets in the way of their own sensory gratification becomes fair game and an easy target. The Christmas display is a fair example. I am one of the passersby who appreciated the display and will miss it. I appreciate the time, energy and personal sacrifice that went into preparation and assembly of the display. As I passed the home this afternoon, the man and his wife were attempting to repair and rebuild the display that is the true spirit of Christmas. As for the miscreants responsible for the damages, I would be more than happy to enlighten you as to acceptable behavior in civilized society, look me up.Thomas Burns Inverness History bears out truth An often-printed lefty letter writer appeared again regarding a couple letters she took issue with. Both letters were printed on the same day and discussed similar concerns as to the left now constantly dismissing views by conservatives through the use of namecalling rather than logically rebutting well-articulated views. This liberal in particular has accused conservatives of being no more than angry, ranting people who ruined what would have been an otherwise beautiful Saturday, because she had to read others opinions. Joanie Welch, I thought, courteously and respectfully explained, with more restraint than I have, that her issues were not so much anger based, but more out of concern for the financial standing of our country. No counterpoints were made to this view. Instead, the liberal letter writer went on to prove the points suggested by the conservatives the arrogance of this presidential administration has trickled down to individuals more worried about their own agendas, un-interested in compromise and emboldened by the narrowest of margins. If this letter writer is offended by others views, I would suggest she stop reading the Letters column and perhaps she might be better served reading about history and economics. The left has thumbed their nose at the greedy corporations and were dancing like a ballplayer hitting his first homerun until Duke pulled the dance floor out from under. Now they ask Duke to consider the best interests of we the people over their own interests. No one complained about the power plant contributing millions to tax revenue, payroll and charities while lightening our individual tax burdens and causing our county to grow from 20,000 to 140,000. Everyone cries oh please dont scrap the nuke. Some have been holding out one hand wanting money while they hold the other hand up with the middle finger pointing as they voted against the greedy 1 percent. Our president promised Cap and Trade legislation, which he explained would necessarily cause energy prices to skyrocket and he was elected anyway. No informed person could have believed we could, in a short time, eliminate fossil fuels in favor of windmills, solar panels or energy fairies. Im not a fan of Duke, monopolies or the PSC, but I understand reality. I used my vote to do the most I could to lessen the most potential and immediate evils challenging my children and grandchildren. Suspicious, speculated and unproven man-made global warming concerns fell far behind the economy and national security. Conservatives and economists have been heckled and called racist, paranoid, overreacting McCarthys when they warned of the consequences of stifling jobs and capital providers and enough people were willing to disregard these warnings so now our little Citrus County may have the distinction of realizing prophecy third in the nation only behind 9,000 Boeing and 18,000 Hostess employees. Detroit is next. Union members are fighting in the streets, shocked they could be betrayed less than a month after they voted for the great deceiver. Did these people somehow forget what happened to the air traffic controllers in the early 1980s? They werent working in sweat shops. In the words of Kenny Rogers: You gotta know when to hold em and know when to fold em. When I wrote we were the next Europe, people sarcastically asked if I had a crystal ball. One doesnt need a crystal ball to see history, or whats happening before he is even sworn in for the next four years. Mitch Simmons Crystal River Banning guns not a solution The recent school shooting has stimulated thoughts of gun control. Why not ban the movies and TV shows that promote killing people. Our small group of Respect for Life citizens is trying to fulfill a mission of loving your neighbor. That shooter was obviously unable to show compassion for other human beings. Where do we begin to correct this lack of compassion? Not by advertising killing in movies and on TV. The gun is only the end product. Banning the gun will not solve the situation when people believe they have the right to take another persons life.

What in the world have they been using for the last several years to determine the tax amount? And where are they going to get the $385,000 in addition to the $350,000 starting point for the lawsuit? What in the world is wrong with these commissioners? Is Scott Adams the only one who knows how to add 2 and 2 and come up with 4? We dont have the money for these things.Wake upThis article in the paper today about our Commissioner Damato and his little project over at Crystal River. Its no wonder our county commission is so screwed up. And to have Thorpe buy into this? Come on, you two, wake up. Snippy remarksWow, I was just at the board of county commission meeting today (Dec. 11). I saw someone question the county attorneys opinion and Mr. Meek called him on it and the county attorney got snippy with Mr. Meek. Thats just too much power in the hands of one man.Charges filedThe county property appraiser and the board of county commissioners should all be indicted and charged with malfeasance of office. It is time for the citizens of Citrus County to shake the diseased tree of local county government. Budgeting As a retired couple, we exist on $2,600 a month. With it we pay our mortgage, insurance, medical, utilities, prescriptions, transportation costs, etc. We have about $98 a week, some weeks, for basic necessities. We get by with a budget. Why cant the BOCC do the same? Cut out the frills and port ideas. Joe Taxpayer, not you, the BOCC, is footing the bills. Look up the port area and zone. Its a group of individuals who want Joe Taxpayer to develop their land and make a profit on marinas, stores, restaurants, etc. Cant go to a restaurant now; sure wont go there later.Spending moreSo the board of county commissioners has spent all our reserves and now I hear words in the paper like special assessments. I hope everyone will join me in getting rid of these county commissioners. They tend to be like our federal government spend more than they take in. Not status quo I just want to say hooray for our newly elected Commissioner Scott Adams. At least he has the common decency to try and help all the people of our good-olboy county, not just go with the status quo as all the rest of BOCC does. We need this breath of fresh air. Keep up the good work and I am so proud of you standing up for us. Thank you again, Scott Adams.Reductions Downsize government. Its about time Citrus County commissioners take steps to reduce (the) workforce and live within their means. My household budget cant continually go up and up and up like the county has. I cant afford to buy expensive goodies like the county does. Its about time the county cuts back on the number of employees it has and the things it buys and learn to live within your means.County coffersI totally disagree with the county commissioners decision to create MSBUs and raise taxes on the people of Citrus County. Once again, Scott Adams seems to be the voice of reason on that commission. And while theyre at it, perhaps they need to look at their $100,000 port study and put that money back in the county coffers, OK? Hot Corner: SCOTT ADAMS Adams stands up I appreciate Scott Adams speaking the truth. Thats why I voted for him. The commission has, the previous commission has been fiscally irresponsible for many years and the rest of us know it. The rest of us have had to tighten our belts and weve watched our elected officials spend like we were still in boom times. They have built things schools and libraries and all kinds of bureaucracies they couldnt sustain. They could not fund them on a long-term basis. They should have taken the monies and planned ahead for a rainy day like the rest of us had to do. Im appreciative of Adams honesty and courage to stand up.A keeper I just wanted to say thank you to Scott Adams. And if some of the things he said to the county commissioners is insulting, so be it. Just like any government entity, they spent and they spent and they spent until they were broke. And now were between a rock and a hard spot with no rainy-day money. We need a new county commission, as far as Im concerned, except for Scott Adams.New approachAs the pictures in the Chronicle on the Dec. 11 front page show, several of our county commissioners continue to act in their pompous way of thinking they are smarter than everybody else. I want to thank Scott Adams for bringing to a very inept commission, intelligence and the positive way of approaching how to run this county. We need to think more about that in the future as we continue to try and put people into the position who will do the job. Doing right thing So let me get this straight: Were going to be taking money from our taxes to fight Duke Energy to which we pay them for our electric bill and fund their legal teams. So basically, were going to get it from both ends. Let me tell you what, guys. Scott Adams is a nice light in the dark and the first time Ive seen a commissioner do the right thing. Lets quit spending money on the port and throwing it away and lets get serious, folks. Geez.Agree with AdamsI have to agree with Scott Adams on the previous county administrations being fiscally irresponsible. I didnt vote for Scott Adams, but after watching how hes starting to work already, I think maybe I should have. Anyway, kudos to you, Scott. Keep these county commissioners in check.Fight later The Duke people theres no use arguing with them. Go ahead and take the money, as Scott Adams said. Then fight them from there on. Otherwise, theyre going to drag you through court after court after court. Ive been there before and these corporations have their lawyers and they can do it. So get what you can and then fight them. ATV trail great ideaI was calling to say how Mr. Adams ATV trail system idea is a great idea to generate income for the county and local businesses. Look how successful (the) Ocala trail system is. Thousands and thousands of people go from all over the country to drive that trail system. Also, the hikers, birdwatchers, plant enthusiasts, they do not pay any type of registration fees to use any of the land. ATV-ers do have to buy off-road permits just to be able to drive their vehicles, and I think it is a very good idea. Letters to THE EDITOR SUBMISSIONS SEND LETTERS TO: The Editor, 1624 N.

Islamists destroy Timbuktu buildingsBAMAKO, Mali A tourism official said Islamist extremists destroyed four mausoleums in Timbuktu Sunday. The director of Malis Timbuktu tourism office, Sane Chirfi, said that Ansar Dine rebels linked to al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb tore down the mausoleums, which were historic but not included on the United Nations list of World Heritage sites. The mausoleums housed the remains of Muslim scholars and teachers who are revered by the Timbuktu population. World BRIEFS Associated PressBEIRUT With Christmas just days away, 40-yearold Mira begged her parents to flee their hometown of Aleppo, which has become a major battleground in Syrias civil war. Her parents refused to join her in Lebanon, but they are taking one simple precaution inside their besieged city. For the first time, Mira said, her parents will not put up a Christmas tree this year for fear their religion might make them a target. They want to stay to guard the property so nobody takes it, said Mira, who spoke to The Associated Press in Lebanon on the condition only her first name be published, out of concern for her family. They cannot celebrate Christmas properly. Its not safe. They are in a Christian area, but they dont feel secure to put a tree, even inside their apartment, Mira said. Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Syrias population of more than 22 million, said they are particularly vulnerable to the violence sweeping the country since March 2011. They are fearful Syria will become another Iraq, with Christians caught in the crossfire between rival Islamic groups. Hundreds of thousands of Christians fled Iraq after their community and others were targeted by militants in the chaotic years after dictator Saddam Hussein was ousted in 2003. During the Syria conflict, Christians have largely stuck by President Bashar Assad, in large part because they fear the rising power of Muslim hard-liners and groups with al-Qaida-style ideologies within the uprising against his rule. Many Christians worry they will be marginalized or even targeted if the countrys Sunni Muslim majority, which forms the majority of the opposition, takes over. The rebel leadership has sought to portray itself as inclusive, promising no reprisals if Assad falls. But some actions by fighters on the ground have been less reassuring. Syrian Christians fear bleak future Religious group worries country will turn into Iraq Syria jets kill 60-plus people as international envoy visits Associated PressBEIRUT A government airstrike on a bakery in a rebel-held town in central Syria killed more than 60 people on Sunday, activists said, casting a pall over a visit by the international envoy charged with negotiating an end to the countrys civil war. The strike on the town of Halfaya left scattered bodies and debris up and down a street, and more than a dozen dead and wounded were trapped in tangled heap of dirt and rubble. The attack appeared to be the government response to a newly announced rebel offensive seeking to drive the Syrian army from a constellation of towns and village north of the central city of Hama. Halfaya was the first of the areas towns to be liberated by rebel fighters, and activists saw Sundays attack as payback. Halfaya was the first and biggest victory in the Hama countryside, said Hama activist Mousab Alhamadee via Skype. Thats why the regime is punishing them in this way. The total death toll remained unclear, but the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said more than 60 people were killed. That number is expected to rise, it said, because some 50 of those wounded in the strike are in critical condition. Associated Press Egyptian journalists tape their mouths and raise their pens during a demonstration against the draft constitution Sunday in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt opposition alleges voting fraud Associated PressCAIRO Egypts opposition said Sunday it will keep fighting the Islamist-backed constitution after the Muslim Brotherhood, the main group backing the charter, claimed it passed with a 64 percent yes vote in a referendum. The opposition alleged vote fraud and demanded an investigation a sign the referendum will not end the turmoil that has roiled this country for nearly two years since the uprising that ousted authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak. Many Egyptians, especially the tens of millions who live in extreme poverty, had hoped the new constitution might usher in a period of more stability. A heated political debate over the past month leading up to the referendum at times erupted into deadly street battles. There were no mass opposition demonstrations on Sunday after the unofficial results came out. Renewed violence and political tensions have further imperiled Egypts already precarious economy, reeling from dwindling resources and a cash-strapped government whose plans to borrow from the International Monetary Fund had to be pushed back because of the turmoil. The finance ministry said Sunday the budget deficit reached $13 billion in the five months from July-November, about 4.5 percent higher compared to the same period last year. Associated PressNEW YORK Shoes are coming out of the closet and landing under the Christmas tree. Theyre a top seller this holiday season a big feat considering most years they dont even make gift lists. Laranda Williams, 39, used to buy clothing, tools and electronics as presents for her family. This year, though, she looked at their feet and got inspired. She bought some Vans sneakers for one of her sons, two pairs of stilettos for a girlfriend of another son, and Nike running shoes for her husband. Electronics and clothing get redundant, said Williams, who lives in Clarksville, Tenn. Shoes are just the wow. I know theyre going to use it, and I know theyre going to love it. The shoe-gifting fetish is part of a larger trend of shoppers buying loved ones gifts they not only like, but also can use. Its this habit of practicality Americans have been clinging to throughout the economic downturn. This holiday season, its meant mom might not buy Molly an extravagant evening gown shell maybe wear once. But mom may splurge on $600 Jimmy Choo pumps if Molly needs work shoes or $150 Nike sneakers if her daughters an avid runner. Its about practicality and splurging at the same time, said Marshal Cohen, chief research analyst at NPD Inc., a market research firm. Theres a sense of, I know what you need but you havent gotten it for yourself. As a result, footwear was the fifth most popular gift on shoppers lists on the day after Thanksgiving known as Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, according to NPD. A year ago, shoes didnt even make it into the top 10 gifts for the season. Overall, sales of cross training shoes rose 16 percent to $197.8 million, and sales of basketball shoes rose 18.7 percent to $353.5 million for the three months ending in November. During that same period, sales of womens fashion footwear grew 3.2 percent to $6.12 billion. Chelsey Gates, manager of Chuckies New York, a designer shoe store on the Manhattan borough of New York City, said shes seen more men buying shoes for the women in his life. One of the most popular gifts: Chelsea Paris gold trim ankle-high boots for $695. Men come in with cards with perfect instructions: style numbers, sizes and prices, she said. The trend comes as stores have been trying to find ways to boost sales of shoes, which can carry profit margins of up to 50 percent. As part of Macys overhaul of its New York flagship store, the department store combined three different shoe departments and expanded their overall size by 10 percent. The new department has 250,000 pairs of shoes, including everything from $99 Nine West leopard print platform pumps to $400 Donald Pliner multi-colored pumps. Women love shoes. This is a category that they care about, said Muriel Gonzalez, an executive vice president at Macys. Practical presents More shoes showing up under Christmas tree this year Mood muted during last holiday shopping weekend ATLANTA Last-minute shoppers crowded into malls and stores during the last weekend before Christmas, but many didnt seem to be in the spending spirit. This holiday season, Americans have a lot on their minds on top of the now familiar job worries. Consumers in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, which account for 24 percent of retail sales nationwide, were tripped by superstorm Sandy. The storm hit in late October and disrupted businesses and households for several weeks. Shoppers are also increasingly worried about the fast approaching fiscal cliff deadline the possibility a stalemate between Congress and the White House over the U.S. budget could trigger a series of tax increases and spending cuts starting Jan. 1. Confidence among U.S. consumers dropped to its lowest point in December since July because of growing concerns about the economy, according to a monthly index released Friday. And the recent Newtown, Conn., school shooting also dampened shoppers spirits, analysts said. This confluence of factors has led to a muted approach to holiday shopping bad news for retailers, which can make up to 40 percent of annual sales during November and December and were counting on the last weekend before Christmas to make up for lost dollars earlier in the season. The Saturday before Christmas was expected to be the second biggest sales day behind the Friday after Thanksgiving. Its so hard to put yourself in the mood, said Linda Fitzgerald, a 51year-old nurse from Yonkers who was with her 17-month-old granddaughter at The Garden State Plaza in Paramus, N.J., on Saturday. She was out Christmas shopping for the first time this year. She planned to spend $1,500 on gifts such as clothes for her boyfriend, down dramatically from $4,000 last year. She had expected to start shopping last weekend, but simply didnt feel like it, facing a sisters cancer diagnosis and worry about the economy and the Connecticut shooting.

Two people familiar with the negotiations said Swisher has agreed to a $56 million, four-year contract with the Indians, who used the free agent outfielders deep Ohio connections to convince him to join the club. The people spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because Swisher must take a physical before the deal can be finalized. Swishers deal includes a $14 million option for 2017 that could become guaranteed based on plate appearances the previous year. The 32-year-old Swisher spent the last four seasons with the New York Yankees. A switch-hitter, Swisher hit .272 this season with 24 homers and 93 RBIs. Swisher will fill an outfield hole for the Indians, who traded ShinSoo Choo to Cincinnati. Swisher will play right, with recently acquired Drew Stubbs likely taking over in center with Michael Brantley shifting from center to left field. Swisher was born in Columbus and played at Ohio State. He spent four seasons with Oakland and one with the Chicago White Sox before joining the Yankees.Ross, Dbacks agree to three-year, $26M dealPHOENIX Cody Ross and the Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to a $26 million, three-year contract Saturday that includes a club option for 2016. Ross, who turns 32 on Sunday and lives in nearby Scottsdale, adds to the abundance of outfielders on the Arizona roster, leading to speculation a trade might be coming. Ross batted .267 with 22 home runs and 81 RBIs last season for the Boston Red Sox. Hes a .267 career hitter in nine seasons with six teams. The addition gives the Diamondbacks four veteran outfielders Ross, Justin Upton, Gerardo Parra and Jason Kubel along with two youngsters the organization has deemed ready for the majors: Adam Eaton and A.J. Pollock.Source: Ibanez, Mariners agree to $2.75M dealNEW YORK Raul Ibanez and the Seattle Mariners have agreed to a $2.75 million, oneyear contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Saturday night. The deal allows Ibanez to earn an additional $1.25 million in performance bonuses, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been announced. Ibanez returns to the team he began his big-league career with from 1996-00, then rejoined from 2004-08. Now 40, Ibanez spent the past season with the New York Yankees and became popular with fans for his late-game home runs. He had hoped to remain with New York, but the Yankees have moved slowly during the offseason.UK paper sues Lance Armstrong over libel caseLONDON Lance Armstrong is being sued for more than $1.5 million by a British newspaper over the settlement of a libel action, which followed doping allegations against the cyclist that it published. The Sunday Times paid Armstrong 300,000 pounds (now about $485,000) in 2006 to settle a case after it reprinted claims from a book in 2004 that he took performance-enhancing drugs. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency concluded this year that Armstrong led a massive doping program on his teams. The Sunday Times announced it has issued legal papers against Armstrong. It is clear that the proceedings were baseless and fraudulent, the paper stated in a letter to Armstrongs lawyers. Your representations that you had never taken performance enhancing drugs were deliberately false. The paper, owned by Rupert Murdochs News Corp., saidits total claim against Armstrong is likely to exceed $1.6 million. The Sunday Times is now demanding a return of the settlement payment plus interest, as well as its costs in defending the case, the paper said. From wire reports T here was a bevy of good golfers on the Citrus County high school boys golf landscape in 2012. But as the season concluded, three players separated themselves from their peers. Crystal River senior Michael Kidd, Lecanto senior Drew Cooke and Crystal River sophomore Kyle Kidd submitted full campaigns that could be the envy of golfers playing for decades. Look to the right for their list of accomplishments, which are the basis for the trios selection as finalists for Chronicle Boys Golfer of the Year. The finalists have standing invitations to the Chronicle sports banquet at the conclusion of the 2012-13 school year, where the winner of the award will be announced. The determining factor in picking these three and the AllChronicle team was consistency.

Jon-Michael Soracchi ON POINT Photos by MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle St. Louis Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson breaks up a pass intended for Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams on Sunday during the fourth quarter in Tampa. Associated Press Associated PressTAMPA, Fla. Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano is worried about more than struggling quarterback Josh Freeman. As a coach, when you dont win and turn the ball over, youre concerned about everything, Schiano said after the Bucs lost their fifth straight game, 28-13 to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Im paid to win games, and weve lost five straight, Schiano added. So yeah, Im concerned. But its just not about Josh Freeman. It starts with Greg Schiano and goes all the way through the organization. Im concerned because we havent been able to get it done and Im the head coach. So Ive got to keep going back and looking at it. Freeman followed one of the worst performances of his career with another clunker. He has thrown eight interceptions in the past two weeks after only having three passes picked off over the previous eight games. Not depressing ... definitely frustrating, Freeman said. You want to win for your whole team. Ive got to take the blame as the quarterback. Tampa Bay (6-9) turned the ball over five times and was stopped on downs twice inside the Rams 10. The Bucs also had five turnovers the previous week in a 41-0 loss at New Orleans.

Nothing today, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Associated Press in an email Sunday night. Dont know whether we will speak before the holiday. Daly and players association special counsel Steve Fehr spoke to each other Saturday, but nothing of note came out of those discussions. The union declined to comment Sunday, the 99th day of the NHL lockout. The sides havent met face to face since Dec. 13. All games through Jan. 14 have already been called off, and if a new collective bargaining agreement isnt reached by then, the remainder of the schedule could be canceled, too. Earlier this week, union members overwhelmingly agreed to give the players association's executive board the power to file a disclaimer of interest until Jan. 2. If the executive board files the disclaimer, the union would dissolve and become a trade association. That would allow players to file antitrust lawsuits against the NHL. Twas the day before Christmas, and all through the rinks... Associated PressAndrew Luck broke the NFL rookie record for yards passing, and rookie kicker Blair Walsh broke the league mark for 50-yard plus field goals in a season. On a Sunday featuring a slew of records, Luck topped Cam Newtons year-old mark for yards passing in the first half of Indianapolis game at Kansas City. Newtons record was 4,051 yards. Luck entered the game needing 74 yards to break the mark, and had 123 at halftime. Minnesotas Walsh kicked a 56-yard field goal in the second quarter against Houston, giving him a record ninth field goal of 50 yards or more. Also, Redskins kicker Kai Forbath set the NFL record for consecutive field goals to begin a career with 17 straight. He had field goals of 45 and 42 yards in the first half against the Eagles. New Orleans Garrett Hartley had 16 straight. On Saturday, Detroits Calvin Johnson broke Jerry Rices single-season yards receiving record.

Redskins 27, Eagles 20 PHILADELPHIA Counted out by their own coach six weeks ago, the Washington Redskins and Robert Griffin III are on the brink of their first division title in 13 years. Griffin threw a pair of touchdown passes in his first game back from a knee injury, Kai Forbath set the NFL record for consecutive field goals to begin a career, and the Redskins held on to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 for their sixth straight win. Nick Foles drove the Eagles to the Washington 5 before his intentional grounding penalty ended the game. The Redskins (9-6) can clinch the NFC East with a victory over Dallas at home next Sunday. They havent won it since 1999 and last reached the playoffs in 2007. A loss and they still have a chance at a wild-card playoff spot. Trying to play spoiler, the Eagles (4-11) fell short in what couldve been Andy Reids last game coaching the team at home. Reid is unlikely to return to Philadelphia for his 15th season next year.Saints 34, Cowboys 31 (OT) ARLINGTON, Texas Garrett Hartley kicked a 20-yard field goal in overtime, and New Orleans damaged Dallas playoff hopes. Drew Brees threw for 446 yards and three touchdowns and led a drive to the winning kick. The Saints lucked out before the winning kick when a fumble by Marques Colston rolled forward about 20 yards to the Dallas 2. Jimmy Graham recovered. The Cowboys lost despite rallying for two touchdowns in the final 3:35 of regulation. Tony Romo, who threw for 416 yards and four scores, hit Miles Austin for the tying touchdown with 15 seconds left in regulation. The playoff hopes for the Saints (7-8) ended with Minnesotas win against Houston. The Cowboys (8-7) play the Redskins next Sunday for the NFC East title, but only Washington has a chance for a wildcard spot if it loses. Colts 20, Chiefs 13 KANSAS CITY, Mo. Andrew Luck threw for 205 yards to break the singleseason rookie record, and his touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne late in the fourth quarter put Indianapolis in the playoffs. Luck surpassed Cam Newtons yearold record of 4,051 yards passing by a rookie in the second quarter, and then came through in the closing minutes. He marched Indy to the Chiefs 7, then found Wayne in the back of the end zone on third-and-goal for the go-ahead score. It was the seventh time Luck has rallied his team to victory in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs are 2-13. Bengals 13, Steelers 10 PITTSBURGH Josh Brown kicked a 43-yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining to put Cincinnati in the playoffs and eliminate Pittsburgh from postseason contention. Brown missed a 56-yarder earlier in the quarter, but earned a second chance when Reggie Nelson picked off Ben Roethlisberger and returned it to the Pittsburgh 46 with 14 seconds remaining. Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green for 21 yards on the next play, setting up Browns game-winner to put the Bengals in the playoffs for consecutive years for the first times since 1981-82. Vikings 23, Texans 6HOUSTON Adrian Peterson rushed for 86 yards, falling far short of the 2,000yard mark, yet helping Minnesota keep its playoff hopes alive. Christian Ponder threw a touchdown pass, Toby Gerhart added a score and Blair Walsh kicked three field goals. The loss kept the Texans (12-3) from clinching home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Peterson had his lowest rushing total since getting 79 yards on Oct. 14 in a loss at Washington. He has 1,898 this season and needs 208 yards to break the NFL single-season rushing record held by Eric Dickerson. The Texans failed to score a touchdown for the first time since 2006. Ravens 33, Giants 14 BALTIMORE Joe Flacco threw for 309 yards and two touchdowns as Baltimore won the AFC North. The Ravens (10-5) led 24-7 at halftime and cruised to the finish behind a shorthanded defense that harassed quarterback Eli Manning and limited New York (8-7) to 186 yards. Baltimore scored touchdowns on its first two possessions and amassed a season-high 533 yards including 289 in the first half alone. The victory ended a three-game skid for the Ravens and assured them of a home playoff game in the first weekend of January. The defending Super Bowl champion Giants (8-7) cant win the NFC East, but still have a chance to make the playoffs as a wild card. Broncos 34, Browns 12DENVER Denver won its 10th straight game as Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes for the 72nd time of his career. Denver (12-3) pulled into a tie for first place in the AFC with Houston. Manning finished with 339 yards on 30for-43 passing. Von Miller was in on two sacks for the Broncos, the second of which knocked Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden out of the game with a right shoulder injury. If Denver defeats Kansas City at home next week and Houston loses at Indianapolis, the Broncos would be the AFCs top seed.Bears 28, Cardinals 13GLENDALE, Ariz. Chicagos defense scored two touchdowns to keep the Bears playoff hopes alive. Charles Tillman returned an interception 10 yards for a score, the third pick hes brought back for a touchdown this season and the eighth overall by Chicago. Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 68 yards and a TD, breaking the Bears franchise record for yards receiving in a season in the process. Chicago (9-6) snapped a three-game losing streak and won for just the second time in seven tries. The Cardinals (5-10) lost for the 10th time in 11 games.Packers 55, Titans 7GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, Ryan Grant scored twice and Randall Cobb set a single-season franchise record for net yardage. The victory ensured the Packers (11-4) will at least be the NFCs No. 3 seed. They still have a shot at the No. 2 and the first-round bye that goes with it if Seattle beats San Francisco. Jake Locker was sacked seven times and picked off twice, and Tennessee (5-10) scored with 1:39 left to avoid the shutout. Patrtiots 23, Jaguars 16JACKSONVILLE Tom Brady overcame a rough start by throwing two touchdown passes for playoff-bound New England. Brady threw two interceptions in the first quarter, the second helping the Jaguars (2-13) build a 10-0 lead. But the Jaguars faded in the third quarter for the fourth consecutive week, lost for the 11th time in the last 12 games and set a franchise record for losses in a season. Brady hooked up with Wes Welker for a 2-yard score on the second play of the fourth quarter, putting the Patriots (11-4) ahead 23-13. Chargers 27, Jets 17EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. San Diego sacked Greg McElroy 11 times, ruining the quarterbacks first NFL start, and Philip Rivers threw two touchdown passes. McElroy, the third-stringer who was starting for the benched Mark Sanchez, moved the offense for the Jets (6-9) early but faced pressure all game. With a chance to get New York back into it with less than 5 minutes remaining, McElroy was sacked by Shaun Phillips and lost the ball. Phillips recovered and San Diego (6-9) sealed the win. Panthers 17, Raiders 6 CHARLOTTE, N.C. Cam Newton threw for 171 yards and a touchdown and ran for 60 yards and another score as Carolina won for the fourth time in its last five games. The Panthers (6-9) held the Raiders to 189 total yards and 12 first downs in a game featuring several shoving matches, plenty of heated exchanges and six unnecessary roughness penalties including one that sidelined Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer for the day.Dolphins 24, Bills 10 MIAMI Reggie Bush caught two touchdown passes and scored on a short run for Miami. Six minutes after they won, the Dolphins (7-8) were eliminated from playoff contention when Cincinnati beat Pittsburgh. The Bills (5-10) came into the game assured of missing the playoffs for the 13th consecutive year. Bushs first TD catches of the season covered 17 and 12 yards. Falcons 31, Lions 18 DETROIT Matt Ryan got what he wanted, helping the Atlanta Falcons win a game they needed to earn home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Calvin Johnson had to settle for having a record-breaking night in yet another loss. Ryan matched a career high with four touchdown passes, two to Roddy White, and Atlanta led from start to finish in a 3118 victory over the Lions on Saturday. Johnson broke Jerry Rices NFL singleseason yards receiving mark of 1,848. Johnson also became the only player with 100 yards receiving in eight straight games and the first with 10 receptions in four games in a row in league history. He had 11 receptions for 225 yards, giving him 1,892 this season. Associated Press Cincinnati Bengals' Josh Brown (3) celebrates hitting a 43-yard field goal with 4 seconds left in an NFL football game, as Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis (23) walks by on Sunday, Dec. 23, 2012, in Pittsburgh. Holder Kevin Huber is at right. The Bengals won 13-10. Associated PressOne year after putting together the NFL s worst record, the Indianapolis Colts are headed to the playoffs. Joining them on Sunday were the Cincinnati Bengals, finishing out the field in the AFC. The Colts (10-5) equaled the 2008 Miami Dolphins as the only teams to win at least 10 games after losing 14 or more the previous season. Top overall draft pick Andrew Luck completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne late in the fourth quarter for a 20-13 victory at Kansas City. Cincinnati qualified for a second straight postseason berth for only the second time in franchise history, edging archrival Pittsburgh 1310. The Bengals have never gone to the playoffs in successive years that did not involve a strike-shortened season. Mission accomplished. Thats all I can say, Colts interim coach Bruce Arians said. Without getting emotional again, knowing that (coach Chuck Pagano) is going to be back Monday, the work week shouldnt be as stressful. For the Bengals (9-6), Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green with a 21-yard pass in the final moments, setting up Josh Browns 43yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining. The loss eliminated the Steelersfrom contention. Minnesotas 23-6 win at Houston prevented the Texans from earning home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. AFC South champion Houston (123) still can get that by winning at Indianapolis in the season finale. New England has won the AFC East, Denver the West. Baltimore clinched the North by beating the New York Giants 33-14, sending the defending Super Bowl champions to the brink of elimination. Washingtons 27-20 win at Philadelphia, combined with New Orleans beating Dallas 34-31 in overtime means the Redskins will win the NFC East by beating the Cowboys next week. But Dallas takes the division by winning that game at Washington. Green Bay clinched at least the third seed in the NFC when it routed Tennessee 55-7. The NFC North champs (11-4) still could wind up second overall and get a bye. Saturday night, NFC South winner Atlanta won 31-18 at Detroit to clinch home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs. NFL CAPSULES Playoff landscape comes together

Clearly out of the playoff picture. Sam Bradford tossed a pair of touchdown passes and rookie cornerback Janoris Jenkins scored his fourth TD of the season, helping the Rams keep their hopes for a winning record alive. Bradford connected with Lance Kendricks on an 80yard scoring play on the first play of the third quarter. The Rams (7-7-1) intercepted Freeman four times, turning three of the turnovers into TDs, including Jenkins interception and 41-yard return early in the second quarter. Steven Jackson rushed for 81 yards and one TD, moving within 10 yards of reaching 1,000 for the eighth consecutive season. The Rams can finish with a winning record for the first time since 2003 by beating Seattle next week. Bradford completed 13 of 27 passes for 196 yards and one interception. Kendricks finished with four receptions for 119 yards, while Jackson closed in on extending the NFLs longest current streak of 1,000-yard seasons rushing on 19 carries. Tampa Bay outgained the Rams 429 yards to 285, with Freeman going 30 of 54 for 372 yards and one TD. Mike Williams scored on a 61-yard reception and had seven catches for 132 yards. Vincent Jackson also had a big day with seven receptions for 108 yards, while the Rams limited rookie Doug Martin to 62 yards rushing on 18 attempts. St. Louis took advantage of their opportunities, and we had a lot of missed opportunities, Schiano said. We had plenty of chances to win the game. Williams slipped to the ground on Jenkins interception, but Freeman tried to force the ball into a crowd in the middle of the field when he was picked off by James Laurinaitis. Jenkins has scored on three of his four interceptions and has also returned a fumble for a touchdown. Jacksons 5-yard TD run in the closing seconds of the first half finished a 65-yard drive Bradford led after Laurinaitis interception, and the Rams broke it open with two more TDs in the first five minutes of the third quarter. Kendricks scored on the first play of the second half, grabbing a pass over the middle at his own 40 and rumbled to the end zone untouched with help from receiver Danny Amendola. Amendola shielded safety Mark Barron from making the tackle just before making just enough contact with another converging defender, Ahmad Black, to allow the tight end to cover the final 20 yards to give St. Louis a 21-6 lead. Three plays later, Freeman was intercepted for the third time, with Trumaine Johnsons pick at the Tampa Bay 30 leading to Bradfords 5-yard TD pass to Austin Pettis that made it 28-6 with 10:47 remaining in the third quarter. But unlike a week ago when the Bucs didnt seriously threaten to score until the closing seconds, Freeman managed to make this one more interesting. His TD throw to Williams pulled Tampa Bay within 15 midway through the third quarter. The Bucs continued to move the ball effectively, however the Rams stopped one drive at their 5 and another at the 3 to remain in control. We will get it straightened out, Schiano said. Notes: Tampa Bay went 0 for 3 in the red zone. ... The Bucs didnt have a sack, but allowed five to the Rams. ... Tampa Bay had the ball for 35:59, compared to the Rams 24:01. BUCS Continued from Page B1 Associated PressHONOLULU Jamaal Franklin had a double-double with 19 points and 15 rebounds and No. 18 San Diego State held off Indiana State 62-55 on Sunday in the Diamond Head Classic tournament in Honolulu. Chase Tapley scored 13 points and the Aztecs (11-1) won despite poor free-throw and 3-point shooting. San Diego State pulled ahead for good during a seven-point run that included five straight points from Tapley. With less than five minutes to play, Tapley drove to the basket and was stopped by Jake Odum, who was called for an excessive foul. Tapley made two free throws and a quick 3-pointer on the ensuing possession, giving the Aztecs a 51-44 lead. The Sycamores (6-4) got no closer than three points behind after that. Neither team established a clear advantage beyond a few key runs until San Diego State control late. The Aztecs went on a 9-1 run midway through the first half to take a 20-13 lead with just under eight minutes left, capped by a three-pointer from Tapley. But the Sycamores pulled to within three points at halftime, 28-25. San Diego State shot less than 24 percent (4 of 17) from 3-point range, and 64 percent (18 of 28) from the free throw line. Womens college basketballNo. 11 Penn State 82, NJIT 37 STATE COLLEGE, Pa.

The Lady Lions (10-2), in their final game before starting Big Ten Conference play, raced to a 44-9 halftime lead against the Highlanders (6-7) of the Great West Conference. Bentley had six steals in the first half, when NJIT turned the ball over 15 times and shot 17.4 percent (4 of 23). The Lady Lions, who won their 12th straight home game, closed the half with a 24-2 run. Lucas scored 13 first-half points and was 5for-8 from 3-point range overall. She is shooting 52.6 percent behind the arc for the season. Melanie Griffin led the Highlanders with 10 points.

Associated Press This image released by Warner Bros. shows Clint Eastwood in a scene from the movie Dirty Harry. It has been selected to be in the National Film Registry. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Tiny hobbit Bilbo Baggins is running circles around some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Peter Jacksons The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey took in $36.7 million to remain No. 1 at the box office for the secondstraight weekend, easily beating a rush of topname holiday newcomers. Part one of Jacksons prelude to his The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Warner Bros. release raised its domestic total to $149.9 million after 10 days. The Hobbit took a steep 57 percent drop from its domestic $84.6 million opening weekend, but business was soft in general as many people skipped movies in favor of last-minute Christmas preparations. The real winner this weekend might be holiday shopping, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Tom Cruises action thriller Jack Reacher debuted in second place with a modest $15.6 million debut, according to studio estimates Sunday. Based on the Lee Child best-seller One Shot, the Paramount Pictures release stars Cruise as a lone-wolf exmilitary investigator tracking a sniper conspiracy. Opening at No. 3 with $12 million was Judd Apatows marital comedy This Is 40, a Universal Pictures film featuring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprising their roles from the directors 2007 hit Knocked Up. Paramounts road-trip romp The Guilt Trip, featuring Knocked Up star Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand, debuted weakly at No. 6 with $5.4 million over the weekend and $7.4 million since it opened Wednesday. Playing in narrower release, Paramounts acrobatic fantasy Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away debuted at No. 11 with $2.1 million. A 3-D version of Disneys 2001 animated blockbuster Monsters, Inc. also had a modest start at No. 7 with $5 million over the weekend and $6.5 million since opening Wednesday. Domestic business was off for the first time in two months. Overall revenues totaled $112 million, down 12.6 percent from the same weekend last year, when Cruises Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol debuted with $29.6 million, according to Hollywood.com. Cruises Jack Reacher opened at barely half the level as Ghost Protocol, but with a $60 million budget, the new flick cost $100 million less to make. Starting on Christmas, Hollywood expects a big week of movie-going with schools out through New Years Day and many adults taking time off. So Paramount and other studios are counting on strong business for films that started slowly this weekend. Associated PressWASHINGTON Breakfast at Tiffanys, Dirty Harry and A League of Their Own will be preserved for their enduring significance in American culture by the Library of Congress, along with A Christmas Story and some pioneering sports movies. They are among 25 selections the library inducted Dec. 19 into the National Film Registry. Congress created the program in 1989 to preserve films for their cultural or historical significance. The latest additions bring the registry to 600 films that include Hollywood features, documentaries, independent films and early experimental flicks. The newest movie chosen for preservation is 1999s The Matrix, noted for its state-of-the-art special effects and computer-generated animation with a style that drew on Hong Kong action films and Japanese anime to change science fiction filmmaking, curators noted. The oldest film being preserved, The Corbett-Fitzsimmons Title Fight, dates back 115 years to 1897. Film curators said the boxing movie helped establish the film industry as a successful business, drawing on the sports popularity and controversy to generate $750,000 in income. Boxing was illegal in many states at the time but was made legal in Nevada, which hosted the fight. The film, with a running time of 100 minutes, became the longest movie ever produced at the time, showing the full course of the fight. Another pioneering sports film, They Call It Pro Football from 1967, was chosen for how it changed the way football was portrayed on screen. Before then, football films were mostly highlight reels. National Football League commissioner Pete Rozelle decided the success of the NFL depended on its television image, to capture the struggle of football and not just the end result on the scoreboard. The Librarian of Congress makes the selections each year after conferring with members of the National Film Preservation Board and receiving public nominations. To be considered, the films must be at least 10 years old. These films are not selected as the best American films of all time, but rather as works of enduring importance to American culture, said Librarian of Congress James Billington in announcing the selections. They reflect who we are as a people and as a nation. They also include some unforgettable characters. Audrey Hepburn landed the lead in 1961s Breakfast at Tiffanys even though writer Truman Capote wanted Marilyn Monroe for the part. Film critics and the audience decided Capote was wrong and hailed Hepburns portrayal. A League of Their Own from 1992 received many public nominations for the film registry over the years. With a cast that included Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Madonna and Rosie ODonnell, it told the story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Numerous public nominations also were received for Born Yesterday from 1950 and A Christmas Story from 1983. Both were chosen this year. Other Hollywood features on the list include Anatomy of a Murder from 1959 and :10 to Yuma from 1957. Each title named to the registry will be preserved in the librarys Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation, built partially in a bunker in Culpeper, Va., or through collaborations with other archives or studios. Documentaries chosen this year include The Times of Harvey Milk, made in 1984 about San Franciscos first openly gay elected official who was assassinated in 1978, and Samsara: Death and Rebirth in Cambodia from 1990 about the struggle to rebuild after Pol Pots rule. This years selections include some firsts in film history. The 1914 film Uncle Toms Cabin, based on the anti-slavery novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe, had been adapted earlier for movies with white actors in the lead roles. But this version was the first feature-length U.S. film to star a black actor when Sam Lucas was chosen for the part. The library will also preserve the first Kodachrome Color Motion Picture Tests from 1922. The twocolor film features leading actresses posing and miming for the camera to demonstrate the new color film. Before then, to show film in color, black and white images either had to be hand-painted or colored with a stenciling process. Inventors, including scientists at Kodak, began experimenting with ways to create true color film. E NTERTAINMENT Page B4 MONDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2012 Preservation C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday There are some strong indications that in the year ahead you might get a chance play a small but rewarding role in an enterprise. The worth of this opportunity will be determined by the intensity of your participation. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Even though it might not enhance your popularity, its still best not to do things that go against your better judgment. Dont wrongly yield to pressure. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Strive for continuity of purpose, so that you finish whatever you begin. Letting loose ends linger could leave a long-lasting bad effect. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) You might find yourself tempted to do something nasty to even an old score. If you do, youll find out the hard way that spite does not make right. Aries (March 21-April 19) Something youre planning has promising potential, but it will have to be nurtured every step of the way. The important thing is not to become impatient. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Appearances are more important than usual, so if you want others to follow your lead, put on a happy face. To be a leader, youll first have to behave like one. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Your intuitive perception is likely to be an enormously valuable asset. Sometimes it pays to ignore your common sense and depend on your hunches to lead the way. Cancer (June 21-July 22) When in a discussion with a friend, you shouldnt treat lightly anything that he or she takes seriously. If you do, your pal might not only stop coming to you for advice, but for friendship as well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Youll function quite well if you dont attempt to do too many things simultaneously. It would be better to do one thing at a time, seeing it through to its conclusion before you begin another. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Avoid trying to instruct another on how to do something youve never actually done yourself. If you turn out to be wrong, you could ruin some important plans. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your researching, probing and detecting skills are especially keen. There is a good chance you will have already effectively used them in helping you select gifts for friends and family. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You dont have to be told that there are always two sides to a story, so dont think differently now. If you should rush to judgment, you could offend the wrong person. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) The possibilities for fulfilling your ambitious expectations look to be exceptionally good today, mostly because youll do things in stages instead of in one fell swoop.

There are seven days left in the year. This is Christmas Eve. Todays Highlight: On Dec. 24, 1955, the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., fielded a series of phone calls from children wanting to know the whereabouts of Santa Claus after an ad in a local newspaper mistakenly gave the Centers number; thus began a tradition continued by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) of tracking Santas location the night before Christmas. On this date: In 1851, fire devastated the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., destroying about 35,000 volumes. In 1865, several veterans of the Confederate Army formed a private social club in Pulaski, Tenn., called the Ku Klux Klan. In 1906, Canadian physicist Reginald A. Fessenden became the first person to transmit the human voice (his own) as well as music over radio, from Brant Rock, Mass. In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower supreme commander of Allied forces in Europe as part of Operation Overlord. In 1968, the Apollo 8 astronauts, orbiting the moon, read passages from the Old Testament Book of Genesis during a Christmas Eve telecast. Ten years ago: Saddam Hussein said in an address read on television that Iraqis were ready to fight a holy war against the United States. Five years ago: President George W. Bush made Christmas Eve calls to 10 U.S. troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and other spots around the world, thanking them for their sacrifice and wishing them a happy holiday. One year ago: Pope Benedict XVI decried the increasing commercialization of Christmas as he celebrated Christmas Eve Mass. Todays Birthdays: Author Mary Higgins Clark is 85.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, D ECEMBER 24, 2012 B5 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Tom Bodett, an author, voice actor and radio host, said, In school, youre taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, youre given a test that teaches you a lesson. In bridge, you are given tests that you might pass by remembering previous lessons; but if you fail a test, hopefully you will remember the lesson for next time. This deal occurred during one of my playing lessons. East opened two diamonds, a textbook weak two. South overcalled three clubs, thinking that to pass with 13 points was wimpish. Then, though, when North advanced with three spades, that was forcing and painted South into a worse corner. (It is antipercentage to be able to land on a pinhead in these crowded auctions. Advancer must be allowed to investigate the right game without having to leap around.) South had no good bid. Eventually, he gambled on three no-trump despite his inflexible, weak diamond stopper. North also took his time, but finally passed. (Note that four spades should go down, declarer losing two diamonds and two spades.) The defense to three no-trump is also textbook. West leads the diamond jack (higher of a doubleton) and East ducks the trick, signaling encouragement with his eight. Then South has no chance. But note that if East takes the first trick, the contract can be made. The curious may work it out. In no-trump, whether you are declarer or a defender, if you are trying to establish a suit in which the opponents have one winner, make them take that winner as quickly as possible.

I love watching TV: sitcoms, news, dramas, reality shows, all of it. Being hearing impaired, I rely on closed captioning so I dont miss the story and commercials. But if the station doesnt provide closed captioning, I will change channels to find a program that does.In the newsroom, if the producers insist on playing music while the news anchor or onsite reporter is speaking, I cant hear the story and will change channels. (Speaking of news anchors, enunciation would be appreciated. Actually, that goes for everyone on TV.)And you advertisers? I recommend you view your commercials on mute and see how they come across. Im still laughing at the credit card commercial that somehow ties dogs and chocolate bars together. It looks suspiciously like dog droppings. I have no idea what youre selling. Hearing aids are wonderful, but they pick up every piece of noise, and background music becomes as loud as the dialogue. Its impossible to hear what is going on. As our population ages, there will be more hearing impaired persons. And young people arent far behind in experiencing hearing loss.So, TV stations and advertisers, if you want your message to get across to another 40 million customers and fans, please ensure that your audio programming can be clearly heard. Thanks. Frustrated Viewer in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada Dear Canada : We cannot tell you how many readers (even those without hearing problems) have complained that they cant hear dialogue over the background music, and that actors and news anchors dont articulate sufficiently to be understood. If programmers and advertisers realize that viewers change the channel when listening becomes difficult, perhaps they will pay more attention. Dear Annie: Looking for a Relationship, Too wants to know where the men are. Ill tell you where we are. We are in hiding. We left the dating pool because there are too many sharks. We are tired of sorting out the gold diggers, scheming manipulators, entitlement princesses, Toxic Thelmas and serial divorcees from the good women who are fewer and farther between.It is now a dangerous occupation to be a husband and father, so we no longer want long-term intimate relationships with women. A Good Man Gone Celibate Dear Celibate: You sound like someone whos had a bitter experience, and it soured you on all relationships. And while you probably speak for many men, we also wonder whether you are subconsciously attracted to women who come with trouble attached. It is often easier to blame the other party than examine your own issues too closely. Dear Annie: This is for all the young people looking to go overseas and the parents who would prefer they didnt. Our daughter was obsessed with everything Japanese: the people, culture, land, language, food. We knew she would find her way there, with or without our help, so we chose to indulge her obsession. We paid for three trips to Japan, Japanese language classes and a masters degree that allowed her to get a job there.She now lives and works in Japan, but we have never seen her happier. Her being so far away gives a whole new meaning to empty nest syndrome for us, but it is worth it. Bittersweet in S.C. Dear Bittersweet: Your daughter has been blessed with understanding parents who could afford to help her reach her dreams. You are all fortunate indeed.

Associated PressORLANDO Paul Millsap scored 18 points, Gordon Hayward added 17 and Utah survived a fourth-quarter rally to slip past Orlando. Orlando cut the lead to one in the waning seconds, but came up empty at the foul line. Utah snapped a two-game losing streak with its fifth consecutive regular-season victory over Orlando. Arron Afflalo had 20 points, and Nik Vucevic added 16 points and 16 rebounds to lead Orlando. Nets 95, 76ers 92 NEW YORK Joe Johnson scored 22 points, and Gerald Wallace had 14 points, nine rebounds and six assists to lead Brooklyn to a win over Philadelphia. Deron Williams added 16 points to help the Nets end a six-game skid at home against the 76ers. Jrue Holiday led Philadelphia with 21 points, nine assists and six rebounds, Thadeus Young added 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Evan Turner had 15 points and seven rebounds. Knicks 94, Twolves 91 NEW YORK Carmelo Anthony scored 19 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, rallying the New York Knicks to a 94-91 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. New York trailed from the opening minutes until Anthony scored eight straight points down the stretch. He had scored just nine points on 3-of-11 shooting in the first half, but had the final 12 for the Knicks to give them a 4-2 finish on their six-game homestand. J.R. Smith added 19 points and Tyson Chandler had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks, who will fly to Los Angeles later Sunday for their Christmas Day game against the Lakers. Spurs 129, Mavericks 91 SAN ANTONIO Danny Green scored a career-high 25 points and the San Antonio Spurs spoiled former league MVP Dirk Nowitzkis season debut with a 129-91 rout of the Dallas Mavericks. Tony Parker had 18 points, Kawhi Leonard added 17, Tim Duncan 15 and Stephen Jackson 14 for the Spurs (21-8). After missing the Mavericks first 27 regular-season games, Nowitzki entered with 6:28 left in the first quarter to a hearty mix of cheers and boos. Nowitzki, who underwent surgery on his right knee Oct. 19, quickly picked up a rebound for Dallas and finished with eight points 3 for 4 from the field and six rebounds in 20 minutes. Trail Blazers 96, Suns 93PORTLAND, Ore. J.J. Hickson had 19 points and 15 rebounds for his seventh straight double-double, and the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Phoenix Suns for their fifth straight win. Rookie Damian Lillard had 25 points, including 18 in the second half. Sasha Pavolic and Lillard made consecutive 3-pointers as Portland pulled in front 92-85 with 4:02 left. The Suns got to within 94-91 on Marcin Gortats layup with 1:24 to go. After Lillards 19-foot, step-back jumper, Jared Dudley had a layup for the Suns to make it 96-93. Phoenix furiously tried to get a shot off, but Goran Dragic missed a 3-pointer, and Shannon Brown missed a short jumper.

She is housebroken, Heartworm-negative, and spayed. She is a very calm, gentle, affectionate older girl. However, she has just been diagnosed with mammary cancer. Her prognosis is unknown at this time, although she does not appear to be in any pain and is fairly active for her age. With good care she could still have a relatively good life. We volunteers at the shelter are hoping with all our hearts to find a compassionate, caring individual or family who would be willing to share their home with Peaches, which would most likely be her last home. When her time comes she would be euthanized at the shelter free of charge. She is a very gentle girl who causes no trouble whatsoever. She gets along with other dogs and with children, and is completely not interested in cats. She would fit into just about any home situation and be very happy there. We truly dont want the shelter to be the last home she knows. Is there any who would be able to open their heart and their home for this sweet older dog? Please call Joanne at 352-795-1288.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterFLORAL CITY Inverness resident Grant Doyle remembers feeling a sense of disquiet when he saw a sheriffs patrol vehicle parked in the driveway of a home that has given him and his family a resplendent bit of Christmas cheer in the past. And, his alarm was confirmed later that evening when he and his wife drove by 1308 Old Floral City Road: the Christmas lights and decorations that had lit up that slice of the neighborhood werent there. A sign with a spotlight on it read something like the family had to discontinue their display due to vandalism. We both just hung our heads, Doyle said. Our children, who live in Volusia County, also love driving by that house whenever they come to visit, he said. News of the vandalism made Doyle write a letter to the editor of the Chronicle,which helped rally the community around the family behind the display Paul and Melissa Dickinson. The Dickinsons said they have taken a lot of pride throughout the years sometimes beginning in October adorning their yard with generations of colorful fixtures. I have four generations of decorations. My grandmother used to love doing this, Mrs. Dickinson said. But early Dec. 15, the family was informed by a neighbor something was amiss in the yard. Upon examination, the family found a mess. Vandals had uprooted many of the displays and those they couldnt remove they kicked and stomped. Among the items damaged include a prized train fixture Mrs. Dickinson inherited from her grandmother. We have a Christmas tree made out of rod and LED lights, which they tried to remove, but they couldnt. My husband had it in such a way it was difficult to remove. The whole thing was quiet disheartening, Dickinson said. She said it was then the family decided to put a sign in the yard saying they were discontinuing the display. But within 24 hours, the community responded, Dickinson said. People began dropping off decorations and money telling us they want us to keep the display going, Dickinson said. So, we went out there and flipped the sign around and wrote a thank you on it and began putting up the decorations again.

At Christmas 2010, Rick and Amanda Williams and their four young children were at the lowest point of their lives. They had moved to Florida from Maryland in 2008 with dreams of a better life. Rick Williams, who did flooring work, had heard jobs were plentiful. They moved to Polk County and were living the Florida dream in a fully-furnished home with a pool and then a series of unimaginable events happened that basically left them destitute, living in storefronts and campers, with Rick working at whatever job he could to feed his family. At one point, they lived in the Ocala National Forest and Williams traveled at 4 a.m. every morning to Homosassa to clean the WinnDixie, earning $40 a day, which cost him $20 a day for gas. But $20 was $20, and they needed every penny. Through it all, they never lost hope, never lost faith. They prayed God would lead them and keep them together. Just before Christmas 2010, Amanda Williams told the Chronicle, Its difficult to keep your faith when one thing after another happens and youre always worried about how youre going to survive. But something has always come along just when weve needed it. Rick Williams had said, As a dad, Im trying to support my family ... I just want my family to have everything they wish for. For the Williams family, their biggest wish has always been for Rick to be a cop. This past Thursday, the 35-yearold Williams completed his final class at the law enforcement program at Withlacoochee Technical Institute and is eagerly waiting to take the state officers certification exam. Then he can start applying for a job. His dream: to be a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy. Two years ago, we were coming through the hardest time of our lives, Williams said recently from the Homosassa mobile home they are presently buying. After the story came out (in 2010), help poured in money and food cards and gifts for the kids. It was awesome, Mrs. Williams said. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleAmanda Williams holds her 9-year-old daughter Shyanne last week. The two, along with the rest of their family, are on the upswing after a series of unfortunate happenings. See FAMILY/ Page A4 Holiday un-Grinched MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleMelissa and Paul Dickinson work in their Inverness yard last week to replace Christmas decorations following a weekend incident in which vandals ransacked their yard and destroyed many of their decorations. Vandals fail to foil Christmas spirit for one neighborhood in Floral City Airports aim for terminal bliss Associated PressCHICAGO Getting stranded at an airport once meant enduring hours of boredom in a kind of travel purgatory with nothing to eat but fast food. These days, it can seem more like passing through the gates of Shangri-la to find spas, yoga studios, luxury shopping and restaurant menus crafted by celebrity chefs in terminals with calming, sleek design. Stung by airline bankruptcies and mergers, more U.S. airports are hunting for alternative revenue streams by hiring top design firms to transform once chaotic and dreary way stations into places of Zen-like tranquility and luxury where people actually want to get stuck and spend money. As the holiday travel season is in full gear, airports are putting what one designer calls terminal bliss on display in hopes of drawing in higher passenger numbers and revenue. Its classy, its very classy. ... It makes you feel good about the layover, said Marty Rapp, 70, who was getting rosy cheeked last week with the help of a large glass of merlot under ice-crystal chandeliers at Chicago-OHares Ice Bar, whose white and softly reflective decor gives the feeling of being secluded in an igloo where everyone is drinking and merry. See AIRPORTS/ Page A5 See HOLIDAY/ Page A2 Bill McBride dies at 67MIAMI Bill McBride, the Florida Democrat who defeated Janet Reno for the partys gubernatorial nomination in 2002 but lost to Republican Gov. Jeb Bush, has died at the age of 67. His wife Alex Sink said Sunday that McBride suffered a fatal heart attack Saturday while visiting with family in Mount Airy, N.C. Sink was the Democratic nominee for governor in 2010, losing to now-Gov. Rick Scott. The couple lived outside of Tampa. Sink said McBride, an attorney, had long suffered from heart problems. McBride defeated Reno, who was U.S. attorney general under President Bill Clinton, in the Democratic primary to run against Bush. Before entering politics, he was managing partner at the prestigious Holland & Knight law firm. From wire reports 000DJKN

She thanked those who showed concern, saying they truly inspired us to continue on with Christmas and put the Christmas spirit in all of our hearts after the decorations disaster. Area resident Morgan Googe said her parents, Lynn Burkhalter and Brad Wasson, were some of the first donors to the Dickinsons after getting wind of the news. It was so sad to see the sign that said they were not going to do the decorations, but just as quickly, it was great to see the community come together for the family, Googe said. Frequent driver-by Doyle said he knew it took a lot of dedication for Mr. Dickinson, who is wheelchairbound, to go out in October and begin the painstaking work. I realized that Christmas is what he looks forward to each year. It took him several days to get everything set up and I watched his yard every time I passed, Doyle wrote to the Chronicle. Doyle continued by expressing his glee at seeing the new decorations up and concluded by writing: I tip my hat to that man in the wheelchair. He not only does not let his physical situation get in the way, he wont let the vandals take away his spirit Merry Christmas, dude!Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Christmas is for seniors, too. Just in time to help replenish the pantry shelves of Citrus United Basket (CUB), last week Phyllis Rimes, the director of business development for SunCrest/OMNI Home Health in Homosassa, presented Deborah Rossfeld, CUB executive director, with 284 pounds of non-perishable food from the agencys Soup for Seniors campaign. In the past weve contributed toys for Toys for Tots, which benefits CUB, but we wanted to do something for seniors this time, Rimes said. With the economy the way it is, we thought collecting soup for seniors would fit right in with what CUB is doing and also because much of what we do is geared toward serving seniors. Part of what SunCrest/OMNI Home Health does includes providing skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical social worker and home health aide care. Rossfeld said increasingly, CUB helps more seniors with food and was visibly appreciative of the Soup for Seniors donation, which included much more than soup. Rimes said the donation was a gift not just from SunCrest/OMNI Home Health, but from their many partnering referral sources local physicians, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities and others. Its our way to give back to the community and benefit the people we serve, the seniors, Rimes said. ChronicleHomeowners who have gone all-out to decorate the exterior of their homes for the holidays and arent opposed to motorists taking a spin by their homes to see their handiwork include: A winter wonderland is on North DeLeon Avenue in Beverly Hills five blocks west of Forest Ridge Boulevard (Beverly Hills Library is the landmark) and Roosevelt Avenue. Multiple houses in a row are decorated and look like one big house. A single residence decorated beautifully is at 7776 E. Fort Cooper Road. Take Old Floral City Road to Fort Cooper to the end on the right. A house and yard decorated with Christmas lights and figures is at 8154 W. Pine Bluff St., Crystal River, in the Citronelle area. Pine Bluff Street is off Citrus Avenue (C.R. 495), about 6 miles north of U.S. 19; or a half-mile south of Dunklin Street. The street is on the west side of Citrus Avenue and it is the first house on the left. A familys Christmas light display has a computer-controlled tree with thousands of lights blinking to music; all kinds of lighted, animated reindeer on a teeter totter; a slide; a merry-go-round; a Santa train with spinning wheels and moving grid of lights on the ground; a full nativity scene; and an inflated Santa, Frosty the Snowman, and penguins. The address is 8483 W. Highland St., Homosassa. The house is off U.S. 19 south of the airport and The Home Depot. It is the road next to the Nissan dealership on U.S. 19 across the street from the Key Training Thrift Store. It is the fifth house on the left before the hill. The Christmas light display comes on every evening from 7 to 11 p.m. A house dressed up for Christmas is at 8039 N. Golfview Drive, Citrus Springs. Golfview is the road that turns off the main road (Elkcam), which is the road the golf and country club is on. A home in Connell Heights subdivision at 904 N. Lyle Ave., Crystal River, is decorated. Coming from Crystal River, go past Rock Crusher Canyon Road. Turn right before Key Training Center on State Road 44. Coming from Inverness, turn left past Key Training Center on S.R. 44. A home in Hunters Ridge in Crystal Oaks is adorned for Christmas. Access to the gated community is off Crystal Oaks Drive. Visitors need to enter #44 on the access pad. The homeowners phone rings, who can open the gate. Enter, turn left and left again into the culde-sac at the bottom of the hill. The light show lasts about 10 minutes and can be heard on the car radio at the FM station shown in front of the home.

On Wednesday, Inverness city clerk Debbie Davis and assistant to the city clerk Susan Jackson visited Key Center group homes in Inverness and on Thursday they spread holiday cheer in Lecanto 19 homes in all. Dressed in festive holiday attire, Davis and Jackson jingled sleigh bells as they approached each home and were greeted warmly. At Franklin Cottage at the Lecanto campus, Michael Giogi donned a Santa hat, opened the front door and raised his hands in excitement. Jason Isaacs, also at Franklin Cottage, hugged Jackson and Davis. It was much of the same at each home on the stop. A lot of the clients go to my church, First Baptist of Inverness, so I recognize some of their faces, Jackson said. Davis said funding for the Santa Stocking Squad project came from several organizations, including the Inverness Rotary Club, Inverness Kiwanis Club, Altrusa, Inverness Olde Towne Association, a local Bunco club and city employee donations. Walgreens donated toothpaste and local dentists provided toothbrushes. Walmart donated the stockings and Ferris Groves donated oranges. Each stocking was filled with toiletries and candies, plus a stuffed toy. It was just a fun thing that we at the city of Inverness did, Davis said.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHERNANDO It was coolbrisk afternoon as Keith Roberts picked up a warm blanket off the table. With only a flannel coat and book bag on his back, he held his new blanket under one arm before being directed toward a collection of bicycles. Would you like a bicycle? asked New Church Without Walls Pastor Doug Alexander. He grinned in reply. Getting a bike means a lot to me, Roberts said. I will be using it for transportation. Roberts has been sleeping in his friends car. As the temperature plummets, he becomes quite cold at night. Receiving a blanket is valuable. Roberts was among an estimated 100 homeless needy men, women and children assembled Saturday on the grounds of Hernando Park for a Christmas dinner and giveaway. Many attended for various reasons such as food, clothing, toys, fellowship and much-needed supplies. We have toys for homeless and families in need, Alexander said. The community has come together to give to those in need. Overseeing the distribution of farm-fresh food from his organization, DuWayne Sipper said the vegetables were picked from the 10-acre field the morning of the event. The guys staying at the shelter want to give back, said Sipper, executive director of The Path. Its kind of weird, but that is how its working. They are here helping, but at the same time, they will probably take some bread back with them. The biggest thing about Christmas is not the presents, its the people gathering. Interaction with people is more important than the gifts. Inverness Walmart Supercenter store manager Larry Gamble had a permanent smile as he buzzed around the crowd. His company donated various camping items along with bicycles. Every year, we give out bikes to some people, Gamble said. To them, it is like winning a house key on Oprah. You know how excited they are. That is the same thing for these people. They cant get a job without some form of transportation. For them to walk a mile or two is hard. With a bike, they can do it easily and get out and get a job. Gamble brings his family every year so his children can gain a deeper appreciation for what they have. He recognizes a simple item can mean a lot to a person who needs it. A Ziploc bag to them is something that will keep their socks, hat or shirt dry when it is raining, Gamble said. Last year, we gave away five-gallon buckets, which are like dressers to them to put their belongings in. Gamble pointed out the word homeless is not solely for people who live in the woods. It means that you dont have your own roof over your head, or you live with your grandma, friend, mom or you live in someones garage, he said. So many different people need help. However, some Citrus County homeless do live in the woods. Alexander explained some will go to shelters to avoid the freezing temperatures, while others sleep outdoors. Some of people volunteering here today will take some homeless home, he said. There are a few tough guys in the woods (who) are not going to go with nobody. They have been through the cold before and they feel that they have everything they need with them.

We were so behind, the money we got we gave to pay our back rent, but it was still really hard for a while. He was out of work until February. They had to move several times and they sold their gas-guzzling Suburban and bought a smaller car, which they call their clown car. Williams was approved for a Pell grant and accepted into the law enforcement program in April. He attended classes from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., then worked as a janitor at Citrus Memorial Health System from 5 to 11 p.m. Then he drove home to Homosassa to study and catch a few hours of sleep. They were managing and then Williams injured his knee while running and was on crutches and couldnt work. So, we got behind again, Mrs. Williams said. Then we met this wonderful man, Ken Koo, who were buying this house from. Hes an angel from heaven. Hes owner-financing for us, and in nine years or sooner we will own it. While still attending the law enforcement academy, Williams left his job at the hospital and was hired at the Key Training Center, where he helped establish the all-male behavioral home and worked there as residential manager. My training with the academy allowed me to utilize what I learned about anger management skills, he said. After a while, his schedule and workload got too demanding and he left the Key Center for a job at Sugarmill Manor assisted living facility as the maintenance director, a job he said he loves. He still works there now as he awaits the next steps in his quest to become a lawman. In Citrus County, more than anywhere else, the deputies are celebrities to kids, he said. They look up to them, and my kids are already telling their friends, My dads a cop. Hes going to drive me to school in a cop car. Mrs. Williams said her husband has wanted to be an officer for as long as she can remember. I think its in his blood, she said. He likes to get involved; he likes to help people, and seeing his dreams and goals come true is so awesome. My ideal goal for him is to become a detective. Toward that end, Williams is planning to start working on his associates degree this spring. Its been a struggle everyone struggles, he said as he reflected on the past two years. But we always knew we would be all right as long as were together. At times we werent sure why we were going through the things that happened to us and weve been disappointed, but we firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. So, whatever we go through, its going to be OK.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com or 352564-2927.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HI LO PR NA NA NA HI LO PR 66 27 0.00 HI LO PR 66 32 0.00 HI LO PR 62 31 0.00 HI LO PR 33 36 0.00 HI LO PR 60 28 0.00 YESTERDAYS WEATHER High cloudsTHREE DAY OUTLOOK High clouds Scattered showers, possible storm, rain chance 40%High: 72 Low: 48 High: 75 Low: 55 High: 70 Low: 40TODAY & TOMORROW MORNING TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY MORNING WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY MORNING Exclusive daily forecast by: TEMPERATURE* Sunday 66/32 Record 84/26 Normal 71/43 Mean temp. 49 Departure from mean -8 PRECIPITATION* Sunday 0.00 in.

Airport redesign has been accelerating in the U.S. during the past 10 years, fueled by a combination of things like an airline industry beset by bankruptcies and consolidation that is less able to shoulder as much of the operating costs for cityowned airports through landing fees and gate rental. More revenue from better retail and dining helps make up the shortfall. At the same time, travelers are becoming savvier and want more than just to get from point A to point B. The airport has become almost a destination in its own right, a place worthy of stopping off for a while for a little shopping or pampering. Theres the ability to go swimming at some airports, theres the ability to actually perfect your golf swing at some airports, there is the ability to its not just getting a quick massage on your shoulders its almost really going to a spa in some cases, said Bill Hooper, an architect at global design firm Gensler, which has transformed airport terminals, including San Franciscos Terminal 2, whose abundant natural light, art installations and cool club feel set a new benchmark for contemporary airport design. The United States and Canada still lag behind Europe and Asia when it comes to the number of airports that are architectural gems and the array of unique offerings. Stockholms Arlanda Airport has a wedding package where couples can tie the knot in the control tower balcony. And Seouls Incheon International Airport is building a six-level terminal that will include a soaring glass-paneled ceiling giving passengers the feeling they are passing through a terrarium-like wonderland, complete with babbling brook, tropical plants and butterflies. But American airports are catching up. Space-agelooking redevelopment at Denver International Airport slated to be finished by 2015 includes a Westin hotel and conference center with a rooftop pool and views of the Rockies. With an outdoor plaza for events and a fast new rail line, the airport hopes to be seen as an extension of downtown, about 23 miles away. Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport opened a nearly mile-long walking path over mosaic floor art inside Terminal D in April. There are two optional cardio step courses leading up 55-foot high staircases, and the path ends up at a free yoga studio, where barefoot travelers with a view of taxiing aircraft can stretch behind light-diffusing screens. In a sense, airports have taken some of the membersonly airline club lounge experience and opened it up for all. Theyre actually trying to create the same sort of sanctuary concept for the more casual traveler, Hooper said. Business travelers in particular are catching on and actually choosing which airport they want to spend their layover in based on the offerings. Montreal (airport) has a smoked meat place ... that if Im booking travel and I need to go back on the East Coast, sometimes Ill say, Can you get me to Montreal for an hour layover so I can have a smoked beef sandwich? said Wil Marchant, 40, who works for a financial services firm in Winnipeg. The transformation is paying off. Concessions revenue from food, beverage, retail and services at U.S. airports hit $1.5 billion in 2011, up 12 percent from the year before, according to Airports Council International-North America, which represents the vast majority of governing bodies that own and operate commercial airports.

OPINION Page A6MONDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2012 Take Stock gives thanksOn behalf of our entire Take Stock in Children family, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to the WOW Water Aerobics Classes from the Dynabody Fitness Club. Many individuals, businesses, organizations and groups in our community helped make the Holiday Variety Show a huge success. Many thanks to those individuals who performed at the show: Citrus High Schools Category 5, Louie and Anna Oliveria, Take Stocks Rachel Wilkins and Rielly Smith, Judah Burton, Felicia and Phyllis Smith, Debbie Sosnicki, Ron Smith, Josh Ulloa, Bill Alston, John Graham, Bubba and Kat Russ. In addition, special thanks to the professionals who gave of their time, Crystal Wilson and the fabulous Lola and the Saints. This fundraising event would not have been possible without the support of many members of our incredible community: Dynabody Fitness Club, Cornerstone Baptist Church, Publix Supermarkets, McDonalds Inverness, 7th Heaven Salon, Via Viente, Shear Delight Hair & Nail Salon, Wendys Inverness, Suzi Mire and Shelby, Al and Emily Merbeth, Tracy Kramer and Allison, Tami Reneer and Cheyann, Sally and Ron Diericx, Ariana Gonzalez, Bonnie Easter and Riah, The Frugal Frog, Ink4Less, Goodfellows Barbershop, Susan Gill, Jamaica Jubilee and the Citrus County Chronicle. Take Stock in Children was honored to be the recipient of the proceeds from this wonderful event. All proceeds donated through this event will be used to purchase scholarships for qualified youth in Citrus County Schools. To Ms. Ruby Burton and her water aerobics classes and to all those who attended the fundraiser and helped our scholars Reach for Success, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We feel so fortunate to live in such caring community!Pat Lancaster, program coordinator Take Stock in Children On the day after the recent massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., police in Newport Beach, Calif., took a man into custody for allegedly firing more than 50 rounds from a semiautomatic handgun in the parking lot of a shopping mall. He aimed into the air and no one was hit, though one person was hurt slightly while running away. Police said 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola was destitute and frustrated with his circumstances. Firing dozens of rounds at the sky was his way of venting. If there is a more apt metaphor for where this nation now finds itself than some fool standing befuddled as bullets rain down about him, one finds it hard to imagine. Come, then. Let us weep for the 20 children shot to pieces by the young man who invaded their elementary school wielding semiautomatic weapons. Let us mourn for the six adults who could not save the children, could not save themselves, who died as the children died, shot multiple times at close range. Let us whisper our sorrows and shed our tears. Let us stagger against one another in our mountainous grief. Let us light our candles and leave them at makeshift shrines to be cared for by the uncaring sun and rain. But let us also understand these acts have no chance of producing anything of lasting consequence. Let us not pretend our sorrow in this moment means a thing changes, because it doesnt and wont. Not until or unless the American nation is finally willing to confront its unholy gun love. The parameters of this argument have not changed for generations. On the one side are people who enjoy hunting for sport or sustenance and people who, when bad guys come through the door, want to have more in their hands than just hands. They are, by and large, decent and responsible individuals who know and respect guns and resent any suggestion they are not trustworthy to own them. On the other side are equally decent and responsible people who think we ought to take reasonable steps to ensure children, emotionally disturbed individuals and violent felons have no access to guns, people who believe no hunter requires 30 rounds to bag a deer and no homeowner not expecting to be attacked by a band of ninjas has need of an AK47 to protect his or her property. There is, you will notice, nothing about one side of the argument that precludes the other. Reasonable people who had their countrys best interests at heart could have bridged the distance between the two many dead bodies ago. Such people are, unfortunately, in woefully short supply. What are rather more plentiful are lawmakers in thrall to the gun lobby and to an ideology that finds more to fear in a paranoid fantasy (jackbooted government thugs coming to seize your guns) than in an objective reality (innocent people repeatedly, senselessly, unnecessarily dying). Is this where that changes? Maybe. Certainly the magnitude of what happened in Newtown seems to have imposed a rare lucidity upon the debate. One sees Sen. Joe Manchin, conservative Democrat from West Virginia and a staunch ally of the NRA, calling for gun control, and it is cause for hope. Then one hears Sen. Joe Lieberman suggest video games may have played a role in the shooting. And Mike Huckabee said maybe it happened because the government no longer mandates prayer in schools. And Bob McDonnell, Virginias Republican governor, suggests the teachers should have been armed (as if the problem is there were too few guns in that school). And hope chokes. We have paid and continue to pay an obscene price for this lesson some of us obstinately refuse to learn. We paid it in Tucson, Ariz., and we paid it on the campus of Virginia Tech. We paid it at Columbine High and at a midnight showing of a Batman movie in Aurora, Colo. Weve paid it in Compton, Calif., Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Norcross, Ga. Weve paid it in Gilbert, Ariz., Bechtelsville, Pa., Prince Georges County, Md., Bay City, Texas, Copley, Ohio, Lauderdale Lakes and North Miami, Fla. Now we pay it in Newtown, in the blood of teachers and young children. We have paid more than enough. And our choice could not be more clear. We can harrumph and pontificate about how the problem is video games or the problem is a lack of prayer or the problem is too few guns. Or we can finally agree the problem is obvious: too many people who should not have guns do. Unless we achieve the simple courage to reach that consensus, nothing else we do will change anything. Let us weep, let us mourn. Let us whisper sorrow and shed tears. Meanwhile, frightened children return to school in Newtown. And bullets keep raining down.Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. Readers may contact him via email at lpitts@miamiherald.com.

Its a different way to look at things, and it seems to be working. One recent Friday morning, 56 community members interested in getting a better grip on their finances participated in a first-ever UWCC financial workshop at the College of Central Florida in Lecanto. The program featured a partnership of community resources, with information booths, short seminars on such topics as credit, lending and housing, plus one-on-one sessions with volunteer budget coaches. United Way CEO Amy Meek reported participants evaluations were uniformly positive. She said Citrus County residents lives were changed, because they attended, representing progress toward United Ways goal of real, lasting change. Participants worked with budget coaches on creating plans to identify all income and expenses and save at least $1 a day toward emergency funds, paying off bills and creating savings. The average planned savings for attendees was $93 monthly, Meek reported, and collectively they pledged to save $42,000 during 2013. About 30 participants also said they will return for a followup session in January to discuss how they did during the first month of their plan and identify what further resources or assistance they need. Happily, success stories are already emerging. One attendee secured extra parttime employment, which will help grow the household emergency fund more quickly. Someone else reported finding more than $50 in unnecessary expenditures monthly, which will add $600 to the savings fund next year. The University of Florida IFAS/County Extension program was a key player, providing training and materials from its Master Money Mentors program. Attendees have the opportunity to sign up to work with a trained mentor throughout the year. More mentors are needed: if youd like to volunteer, call program supervisor Monica Payne at the County Extension office, 352-527-5713. Financial literacy is not something we all just naturally understand; this program helped willing citizens take a major step toward financial independence. We applaud the effort and look forward to more United Way programs that offer a hand-up, not a hand-out. THE ISSUE:United Way works on root causes of financial instability.OUR OPINION:Great leadership to help citizens achieve financial independence.

There isnt hardly a day goes by that something isnt depressing in the newspapers child abuse, the robberies, the young kids getting in trouble in bars and the speeding on the highways. All they do is get negative attitudes in this country and its been going on for the past 10, 15 years. And then the parents are complaining; the parents arent home. Just time that we start having some happy days in life and start talking about happy things in our homes instead of everything being negative. Lets stop this. This is getting just ridiculous. Ive never in my life thought that Id be living in an era of this life here where everybody is putting down everybody and destroying what was good in our country 50, 60 years ago. We had some good times back 50 years ago. Go play soccerHey, soccer mom and dad: Citrus County has a great soccer program and fields. Turn off your cellphones and iPhones while your kids are playing and watch them. Root for your kids, like me and others around you who dont care to hear cute ringtones and YouTube videos. Leave that for your friends at the mall. Your kids are right in front of you and theyre more important than your social life.Great boat paradeThank you to the sponsors and boat owners who took the time and the expense to decorate their boats for the people of Homosassa to enjoy. This was by far the best boat parade and very colorful. I have attended many since 2001. Thank you again for putting on this wonderful boat parade.Port productRegarding Port Citrus: The only boat product that I can think of that has a market in Citrus County and the surrounding area is gasoline and other oil products. That would involve bringing barging in, tank farms, etc. That would really be a nice addition to the Nature Coast, of course. But if you remember, when the barge canal was stopped, one of the major opposition groups was battling the barge canal about the possibility of oil spills, that along with the pollution. Great giveawaysI just wanted to say thank you to the Citrus County Chronicle for all the contests and giveaways they do throughout the year. Thank you very much.

Vandals rain on Christmas spiritI truly believe there exists within our society a very sinister element that lacks the necessary social graces afforded by responsible parenting and an educated childhood. Every year, just after Halloween, a couple who live on Old Floral City Road begins decorating their yard for Christmas. Some may think thats early; but as one who passes the house on a daily basis, I appreciate their effort and expense to spread holiday cheer. The yard display has grown each year with the addition of lighted figurines, inflatables, signs and lights. It is a wonderful display for all to enjoy while the homeowners incur the expense a very generous effort on their part. This past weekend they were paid a visit by vandals. Needless to say, the yard decorations, displays and lights were destroyed. The yard display now consists of damaged items they were able to salvage. Among the items displayed is a prominently posted apology advising vandals destroyed the display. These fine people, who did nothing more than try to spread holiday cheer, were put in the position of apologizing for the criminal acts of the vandals. These are humble people of true character. The apology, however, needs to come from the miscreants, the social misfits, the individuals lacking a proper upbringing (who) took it upon themselves to destroy a part of Christmas for all the rest of us. Unfortunately, as recent events in this country continue to demonstrate, we are experiencing the end result of misguided individuals who were not provided with social standards and who think of nothing more than illicit gain and total destruction of societal standards. Ignorance and intolerance seem to be their watchword and anything that gets in the way of their own sensory gratification becomes fair game and an easy target. The Christmas display is a fair example. I am one of the passersby who appreciated the display and will miss it. I appreciate the time, energy and personal sacrifice that went into preparation and assembly of the display. As I passed the home this afternoon, the man and his wife were attempting to repair and rebuild the display that is the true spirit of Christmas. As for the miscreants responsible for the damages, I would be more than happy to enlighten you as to acceptable behavior in civilized society, look me up.Thomas Burns InvernessHistory bears out truthAn often-printed lefty letter writer appeared again regarding a couple letters she took issue with. Both letters were printed on the same day and discussed similar concerns as to the left now constantly dismissing views by conservatives through the use of namecalling rather than logically rebutting well-articulated views. This liberal in particular has accused conservatives of being no more than angry, ranting people who ruined what would have been an otherwise beautiful Saturday, because she had to read others opinions. Joanie Welch, I thought, courteously and respectfully explained, with more restraint than I have, that her issues were not so much anger based, but more out of concern for the financial standing of our country. No counterpoints were made to this view. Instead, the liberal letter writer went on to prove the points suggested by the conservatives the arrogance of this presidential administration has trickled down to individuals more worried about their own agendas, un-interested in compromise and emboldened by the narrowest of margins. If this letter writer is offended by others views, I would suggest she stop reading the Letters column and perhaps she might be better served reading about history and economics. The left has thumbed their nose at the greedy corporations and were dancing like a ballplayer hitting his first homerun until Duke pulled the dance floor out from under. Now they ask Duke to consider the best interests of we the people over their own interests. No one complained about the power plant contributing millions to tax revenue, payroll and charities while lightening our individual tax burdens and causing our county to grow from 20,000 to 140,000. Everyone cries oh please dont scrap the nuke. Some have been holding out one hand wanting money while they hold the other hand up with the middle finger pointing as they voted against the greedy 1 percent. Our president promised Cap and Trade legislation, which he explained would necessarily cause energy prices to skyrocket and he was elected anyway. No informed person could have believed we could, in a short time, eliminate fossil fuels in favor of windmills, solar panels or energy fairies. Im not a fan of Duke, monopolies or the PSC, but I understand reality. I used my vote to do the most I could to lessen the most potential and immediate evils challenging my children and grandchildren. Suspicious, speculated and unproven man-made global warming concerns fell far behind the economy and national security. Conservatives and economists have been heckled and called racist, paranoid, overreacting McCarthys when they warned of the consequences of stifling jobs and capital providers and enough people were willing to disregard these warnings so now our little Citrus County may have the distinction of realizing prophecy third in the nation only behind 9,000 Boeing and 18,000 Hostess employees. Detroit is next. Union members are fighting in the streets, shocked they could be betrayed less than a month after they voted for the great deceiver. Did these people somehow forget what happened to the air traffic controllers in the early 1980s? They werent working in sweat shops. In the words of Kenny Rogers: You gotta know when to hold em and know when to fold em. When I wrote we were the next Europe, people sarcastically asked if I had a crystal ball. One doesnt need a crystal ball to see history, or whats happening before he is even sworn in for the next four years. Mitch Simmons Crystal RiverBanning guns not a solutionThe recent school shooting has stimulated thoughts of gun control. Why not ban the movies and TV shows that promote killing people. Our small group of Respect for Life citizens is trying to fulfill a mission of loving your neighbor. That shooter was obviously unable to show compassion for other human beings. Where do we begin to correct this lack of compassion? Not by advertising killing in movies and on TV. The gun is only the end product. Banning the gun will not solve the situation when people believe they have the right to take another persons life.

What in the world have they been using for the last several years to determine the tax amount? And where are they going to get the $385,000 in addition to the $350,000 starting point for the lawsuit? What in the world is wrong with these commissioners? Is Scott Adams the only one who knows how to add 2 and 2 and come up with 4? We dont have the money for these things.Wake upThis article in the paper today about our Commissioner Damato and his little project over at Crystal River. Its no wonder our county commission is so screwed up. And to have Thorpe buy into this? Come on, you two, wake up. Snippy remarksWow, I was just at the board of county commission meeting today (Dec. 11). I saw someone question the county attorneys opinion and Mr. Meek called him on it and the county attorney got snippy with Mr. Meek. Thats just too much power in the hands of one man.Charges filedThe county property appraiser and the board of county commissioners should all be indicted and charged with malfeasance of office. It is time for the citizens of Citrus County to shake the diseased tree of local county government. BudgetingAs a retired couple, we exist on $2,600 a month. With it we pay our mortgage, insurance, medical, utilities, prescriptions, transportation costs, etc. We have about $98 a week, some weeks, for basic necessities. We get by with a budget.

Its a group of individuals who want Joe Taxpayer to develop their land and make a profit on marinas, stores, restaurants, etc. Cant go to a restaurant now; sure wont go there later.Spending moreSo the board of county commissioners has spent all our reserves and now I hear words in the paper like special assessments. I hope everyone will join me in getting rid of these county commissioners. They tend to be like our federal government spend more than they take in.Not status quoI just want to say hooray for our newly elected Commissioner Scott Adams. At least he has the common decency to try and help all the people of our good-olboy county, not just go with the status quo as all the rest of BOCC does. We need this breath of fresh air. Keep up the good work and I am so proud of you standing up for us. Thank you again, Scott Adams.ReductionsDownsize government. Its about time Citrus County commissioners take steps to reduce (the) workforce and live within their means. My household budget cant continually go up and up and up like the county has. I cant afford to buy expensive goodies like the county does. Its about time the county cuts back on the number of employees it has and the things it buys and learn to live within your means.County coffersI totally disagree with the county commissioners decision to create MSBUs and raise taxes on the people of Citrus County. Once again, Scott Adams seems to be the voice of reason on that commission. And while theyre at it, perhaps they need to look at their $100,000 port study and put that money back in the county coffers, OK? Hot Corner:SCOTT ADAMS Adams stands upI appreciate Scott Adams speaking the truth. Thats why I voted for him. The commission has, the previous commission has been fiscally irresponsible for many years and the rest of us know it. The rest of us have had to tighten our belts and weve watched our elected officials spend like we were still in boom times. They have built things schools and libraries and all kinds of bureaucracies they couldnt sustain. They could not fund them on a long-term basis. They should have taken the monies and planned ahead for a rainy day like the rest of us had to do. Im appreciative of Adams honesty and courage to stand up.A keeperI just wanted to say thank you to Scott Adams. And if some of the things he said to the county commissioners is insulting, so be it. Just like any government entity, they spent and they spent and they spent until they were broke. And now were between a rock and a hard spot with no rainy-day money. We need a new county commission, as far as Im concerned, except for Scott Adams.New approachAs the pictures in the Chronicle on the Dec. 11 front page show, several of our county commissioners continue to act in their pompous way of thinking they are smarter than everybody else. I want to thank Scott Adams for bringing to a very inept commission, intelligence and the positive way of approaching how to run this county. We need to think more about that in the future as we continue to try and put people into the position who will do the job. Doing right thingSo let me get this straight: Were going to be taking money from our taxes to fight Duke Energy to which we pay them for our electric bill and fund their legal teams. So basically, were going to get it from both ends. Let me tell you what, guys. Scott Adams is a nice light in the dark and the first time Ive seen a commissioner do the right thing. Lets quit spending money on the port and throwing it away and lets get serious, folks. Geez.Agree with AdamsI have to agree with Scott Adams on the previous county administrations being fiscally irresponsible. I didnt vote for Scott Adams, but after watching how hes starting to work already, I think maybe I should have. Anyway, kudos to you, Scott. Keep these county commissioners in check.Fight laterThe Duke people theres no use arguing with them. Go ahead and take the money, as Scott Adams said. Then fight them from there on. Otherwise, theyre going to drag you through court after court after court. Ive been there before and these corporations have their lawyers and they can do it. So get what you can and then fight them.ATV trail great ideaI was calling to say how Mr. Adams ATV trail system idea is a great idea to generate income for the county and local businesses. Look how successful (the) Ocala trail system is. Thousands and thousands of people go from all over the country to drive that trail system. Also, the hikers, birdwatchers, plant enthusiasts, they do not pay any type of registration fees to use any of the land. ATV-ers do have to buy off-road permits just to be able to drive their vehicles, and I think it is a very good idea. Letters toTHE EDITOR SUBMISSIONSSEND LETTERS TO: The Editor, 1624 N.

Bush, who has been in a Houston hospital with a lingering cough since November, needs to build up his energy before he can be released, doctors said Sunday. Methodist Hospital spokesman George Kovacik said in an emailed statement doctors are still optimistic the 88-year-old Bush will make a full recovery, but are being extra cautious with his care. Bush is in stable condition, he said. Bush was hospitalized Nov. 23 for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough. Hospital officials have said Bush has been receiving physical therapy to increase his strength.

Presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said the physicians caring for Mandela had given no indication of an imminent discharge from a hospital in Pretoria, the capital, according to IOL, a South African news website. At this stage there is no update on his condition and his doctors have given no indication about when Mandela could be discharged, IOL quoted Maharaj as saying Saturday.

The director of Malis Timbuktu tourism office, Sane Chirfi, said that Ansar Dine rebels linked to al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb tore down the mausoleums, which were historic but not included on the United Nations list of World Heritage sites.

World BRIEFS Associated PressBEIRUT With Christmas just days away, 40-yearold Mira begged her parents to flee their hometown of Aleppo, which has become a major battleground in Syrias civil war. Her parents refused to join her in Lebanon, but they are taking one simple precaution inside their besieged city. For the first time, Mira said, her parents will not put up a Christmas tree this year for fear their religion might make them a target. They want to stay to guard the property so nobody takes it, said Mira, who spoke to The Associated Press in Lebanon on the condition only her first name be published, out of concern for her family. They cannot celebrate Christmas properly. Its not safe. They are in a Christian area, but they dont feel secure to put a tree, even inside their apartment, Mira said. Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Syrias population of more than 22 million, said they are particularly vulnerable to the violence sweeping the country since March 2011. They are fearful Syria will become another Iraq, with Christians caught in the crossfire between rival Islamic groups. Hundreds of thousands of Christians fled Iraq after their community and others were targeted by militants in the chaotic years after dictator Saddam Hussein was ousted in 2003. During the Syria conflict, Christians have largely stuck by President Bashar Assad, in large part because they fear the rising power of Muslim hard-liners and groups with al-Qaida-style ideologies within the uprising against his rule. Many Christians worry they will be marginalized or even targeted if the countrys Sunni Muslim majority, which forms the majority of the opposition, takes over. The rebel leadership has sought to portray itself as inclusive, promising no reprisals if Assad falls. But some actions by fighters on the ground have been less reassuring. Syrian Christians fear bleak future Religious group worries country will turn into Iraq Syria jets kill 60-plus people as international envoy visits Associated PressBEIRUT A government airstrike on a bakery in a rebel-held town in central Syria killed more than 60 people on Sunday, activists said, casting a pall over a visit by the international envoy charged with negotiating an end to the countrys civil war. The strike on the town of Halfaya left scattered bodies and debris up and down a street, and more than a dozen dead and wounded were trapped in tangled heap of dirt and rubble. The attack appeared to be the government response to a newly announced rebel offensive seeking to drive the Syrian army from a constellation of towns and village north of the central city of Hama. Halfaya was the first of the areas towns to be liberated by rebel fighters, and activists saw Sundays attack as payback. Halfaya was the first and biggest victory in the Hama countryside, said Hama activist Mousab Alhamadee via Skype. Thats why the regime is punishing them in this way. The total death toll remained unclear, but the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said more than 60 people were killed. That number is expected to rise, it said, because some 50 of those wounded in the strike are in critical condition. Associated PressEgyptian journalists tape their mouths and raise their pens during a demonstration against the draft constitution Sunday in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt opposition alleges voting fraud Associated PressCAIRO Egypts opposition said Sunday it will keep fighting the Islamist-backed constitution after the Muslim Brotherhood, the main group backing the charter, claimed it passed with a 64 percent yes vote in a referendum. The opposition alleged vote fraud and demanded an investigation a sign the referendum will not end the turmoil that has roiled this country for nearly two years since the uprising that ousted authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak. Many Egyptians, especially the tens of millions who live in extreme poverty, had hoped the new constitution might usher in a period of more stability. A heated political debate over the past month leading up to the referendum at times erupted into deadly street battles. There were no mass opposition demonstrations on Sunday after the unofficial results came out. Renewed violence and political tensions have further imperiled Egypts already precarious economy, reeling from dwindling resources and a cash-strapped government whose plans to borrow from the International Monetary Fund had to be pushed back because of the turmoil. The finance ministry said Sunday the budget deficit reached $13 billion in the five months from July-November, about 4.5 percent higher compared to the same period last year. Associated PressNEW YORK Shoes are coming out of the closet and landing under the Christmas tree. Theyre a top seller this holiday season a big feat considering most years they dont even make gift lists. Laranda Williams, 39, used to buy clothing, tools and electronics as presents for her family. This year, though, she looked at their feet and got inspired. She bought some Vans sneakers for one of her sons, two pairs of stilettos for a girlfriend of another son, and Nike running shoes for her husband. Electronics and clothing get redundant, said Williams, who lives in Clarksville, Tenn. Shoes are just the wow. I know theyre going to use it, and I know theyre going to love it. The shoe-gifting fetish is part of a larger trend of shoppers buying loved ones gifts they not only like, but also can use. Its this habit of practicality Americans have been clinging to throughout the economic downturn. This holiday season, its meant mom might not buy Molly an extravagant evening gown shell maybe wear once. But mom may splurge on $600 Jimmy Choo pumps if Molly needs work shoes or $150 Nike sneakers if her daughters an avid runner. Its about practicality and splurging at the same time, said Marshal Cohen, chief research analyst at NPD Inc., a market research firm. Theres a sense of, I know what you need but you havent gotten it for yourself. As a result, footwear was the fifth most popular gift on shoppers lists on the day after Thanksgiving known as Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, according to NPD. A year ago, shoes didnt even make it into the top 10 gifts for the season. Overall, sales of cross training shoes rose 16 percent to $197.8 million, and sales of basketball shoes rose 18.7 percent to $353.5 million for the three months ending in November. During that same period, sales of womens fashion footwear grew 3.2 percent to $6.12 billion. Chelsey Gates, manager of Chuckies New York, a designer shoe store on the Manhattan borough of New York City, said shes seen more men buying shoes for the women in his life. One of the most popular gifts: Chelsea Paris gold trim ankle-high boots for $695. Men come in with cards with perfect instructions: style numbers, sizes and prices, she said. The trend comes as stores have been trying to find ways to boost sales of shoes, which can carry profit margins of up to 50 percent. As part of Macys overhaul of its New York flagship store, the department store combined three different shoe departments and expanded their overall size by 10 percent. The new department has 250,000 pairs of shoes, including everything from $99 Nine West leopard print platform pumps to $400 Donald Pliner multi-colored pumps. Women love shoes. This is a category that they care about, said Muriel Gonzalez, an executive vice president at Macys. Practical presents More shoes showing up under Christmas tree this year Mood muted during last holiday shopping weekendATLANTA Last-minute shoppers crowded into malls and stores during the last weekend before Christmas, but many didnt seem to be in the spending spirit. This holiday season, Americans have a lot on their minds on top of the now familiar job worries. Consumers in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, which account for 24 percent of retail sales nationwide, were tripped by superstorm Sandy. The storm hit in late October and disrupted businesses and households for several weeks. Shoppers are also increasingly worried about the fast approaching fiscal cliff deadline the possibility a stalemate between Congress and the White House over the U.S. budget could trigger a series of tax increases and spending cuts starting Jan. 1. Confidence among U.S. consumers dropped to its lowest point in December since July because of growing concerns about the economy, according to a monthly index released Friday. And the recent Newtown, Conn., school shooting also dampened shoppers spirits, analysts said. This confluence of factors has led to a muted approach to holiday shopping bad news for retailers, which can make up to 40 percent of annual sales during November and December and were counting on the last weekend before Christmas to make up for lost dollars earlier in the season. The Saturday before Christmas was expected to be the second biggest sales day behind the Friday after Thanksgiving. Its so hard to put yourself in the mood, said Linda Fitzgerald, a 51year-old nurse from Yonkers who was with her 17-month-old granddaughter at The Garden State Plaza in Paramus, N.J., on Saturday. She was out Christmas shopping for the first time this year. She planned to spend $1,500 on gifts such as clothes for her boyfriend, down dramatically from $4,000 last year. She had expected to start shopping last weekend, but simply didnt feel like it, facing a sisters cancer diagnosis and worry about the economy and the Connecticut shooting.

Two people familiar with the negotiations said Swisher has agreed to a $56 million, four-year contract with the Indians, who used the free agent outfielders deep Ohio connections to convince him to join the club. The people spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because Swisher must take a physical before the deal can be finalized. Swishers deal includes a $14 million option for 2017 that could become guaranteed based on plate appearances the previous year. The 32-year-old Swisher spent the last four seasons with the New York Yankees. A switch-hitter, Swisher hit .272 this season with 24 homers and 93 RBIs. Swisher will fill an outfield hole for the Indians, who traded ShinSoo Choo to Cincinnati. Swisher will play right, with recently acquired Drew Stubbs likely taking over in center with Michael Brantley shifting from center to left field. Swisher was born in Columbus and played at Ohio State. He spent four seasons with Oakland and one with the Chicago White Sox before joining the Yankees.Ross, Dbacks agree to three-year, $26M dealPHOENIX Cody Ross and the Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to a $26 million, three-year contract Saturday that includes a club option for 2016. Ross, who turns 32 on Sunday and lives in nearby Scottsdale, adds to the abundance of outfielders on the Arizona roster, leading to speculation a trade might be coming. Ross batted .267 with 22 home runs and 81 RBIs last season for the Boston Red Sox. Hes a .267 career hitter in nine seasons with six teams. The addition gives the Diamondbacks four veteran outfielders Ross, Justin Upton, Gerardo Parra and Jason Kubel along with two youngsters the organization has deemed ready for the majors: Adam Eaton and A.J. Pollock.Source: Ibanez, Mariners agree to $2.75M dealNEW YORK Raul Ibanez and the Seattle Mariners have agreed to a $2.75 million, oneyear contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Saturday night. The deal allows Ibanez to earn an additional $1.25 million in performance bonuses, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been announced. Ibanez returns to the team he began his big-league career with from 1996-00, then rejoined from 2004-08. Now 40, Ibanez spent the past season with the New York Yankees and became popular with fans for his late-game home runs. He had hoped to remain with New York, but the Yankees have moved slowly during the offseason.UK paper sues Lance Armstrong over libel caseLONDON Lance Armstrong is being sued for more than $1.5 million by a British newspaper over the settlement of a libel action, which followed doping allegations against the cyclist that it published. The Sunday Times paid Armstrong 300,000 pounds (now about $485,000) in 2006 to settle a case after it reprinted claims from a book in 2004 that he took performance-enhancing drugs. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency concluded this year that Armstrong led a massive doping program on his teams. The Sunday Times announced it has issued legal papers against Armstrong. It is clear that the proceedings were baseless and fraudulent, the paper stated in a letter to Armstrongs lawyers. Your representations that you had never taken performance enhancing drugs were deliberately false. The paper, owned by Rupert Murdochs News Corp., saidits total claim against Armstrong is likely to exceed $1.6 million. The Sunday Times is now demanding a return of the settlement payment plus interest, as well as its costs in defending the case, the paper said.From wire reports There was a bevy of good golfers on the Citrus County high school boys golf landscape in 2012.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano is worried about more than struggling quarterback Josh Freeman. As a coach, when you dont win and turn the ball over, youre concerned about everything, Schiano said after the Bucs lost their fifth straight game, 28-13 to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Im paid to win games, and weve lost five straight, Schiano added. So yeah, Im concerned. But its just not about Josh Freeman. It starts with Greg Schiano and goes all the way through the organization. Im concerned because we havent been able to get it done and Im the head coach. So Ive got to keep going back and looking at it. Freeman followed one of the worst performances of his career with another clunker. He has thrown eight interceptions in the past two weeks after only having three passes picked off over the previous eight games. Not depressing ... definitely frustrating, Freeman said. You want to win for your whole team. Ive got to take the blame as the quarterback. Tampa Bay (6-9) turned the ball over five times and was stopped on downs twice inside the Rams 10. The Bucs also had five turnovers the previous week in a 41-0 loss at New Orleans.

Nothing today, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Associated Press in an email Sunday night. Dont know whether we will speak before the holiday. Daly and players association special counsel Steve Fehr spoke to each other Saturday, but nothing of note came out of those discussions. The union declined to comment Sunday, the 99th day of the NHL lockout. The sides havent met face to face since Dec. 13. All games through Jan. 14 have already been called off, and if a new collective bargaining agreement isnt reached by then, the remainder of the schedule could be canceled, too. Earlier this week, union members overwhelmingly agreed to give the players association's executive board the power to file a disclaimer of interest until Jan. 2. If the executive board files the disclaimer, the union would dissolve and become a trade association. That would allow players to file antitrust lawsuits against the NHL.

Redskins 27, Eagles 20PHILADELPHIA Counted out by their own coach six weeks ago, the Washington Redskins and Robert Griffin III are on the brink of their first division title in 13 years. Griffin threw a pair of touchdown passes in his first game back from a knee injury, Kai Forbath set the NFL record for consecutive field goals to begin a career, and the Redskins held on to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 for their sixth straight win. Nick Foles drove the Eagles to the Washington 5 before his intentional grounding penalty ended the game. The Redskins (9-6) can clinch the NFC East with a victory over Dallas at home next Sunday. They havent won it since 1999 and last reached the playoffs in 2007. A loss and they still have a chance at a wild-card playoff spot. Trying to play spoiler, the Eagles (4-11) fell short in what couldve been Andy Reids last game coaching the team at home. Reid is unlikely to return to Philadelphia for his 15th season next year.Saints 34, Cowboys 31 (OT)ARLINGTON, Texas Garrett Hartley kicked a 20-yard field goal in overtime, and New Orleans damaged Dallas playoff hopes. Drew Brees threw for 446 yards and three touchdowns and led a drive to the winning kick. The Saints lucked out before the winning kick when a fumble by Marques Colston rolled forward about 20 yards to the Dallas 2. Jimmy Graham recovered. The Cowboys lost despite rallying for two touchdowns in the final 3:35 of regulation. Tony Romo, who threw for 416 yards and four scores, hit Miles Austin for the tying touchdown with 15 seconds left in regulation. The playoff hopes for the Saints (7-8) ended with Minnesotas win against Houston. The Cowboys (8-7) play the Redskins next Sunday for the NFC East title, but only Washington has a chance for a wildcard spot if it loses.Colts 20, Chiefs 13KANSAS CITY, Mo. Andrew Luck threw for 205 yards to break the singleseason rookie record, and his touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne late in the fourth quarter put Indianapolis in the playoffs. Luck surpassed Cam Newtons yearold record of 4,051 yards passing by a rookie in the second quarter, and then came through in the closing minutes. He marched Indy to the Chiefs 7, then found Wayne in the back of the end zone on third-and-goal for the go-ahead score. It was the seventh time Luck has rallied his team to victory in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs are 2-13.Bengals 13, Steelers 10PITTSBURGH Josh Brown kicked a 43-yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining to put Cincinnati in the playoffs and eliminate Pittsburgh from postseason contention. Brown missed a 56-yarder earlier in the quarter, but earned a second chance when Reggie Nelson picked off Ben Roethlisberger and returned it to the Pittsburgh 46 with 14 seconds remaining. Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green for 21 yards on the next play, setting up Browns game-winner to put the Bengals in the playoffs for consecutive years for the first times since 1981-82.Vikings 23, Texans 6HOUSTON Adrian Peterson rushed for 86 yards, falling far short of the 2,000yard mark, yet helping Minnesota keep its playoff hopes alive. Christian Ponder threw a touchdown pass, Toby Gerhart added a score and Blair Walsh kicked three field goals. The loss kept the Texans (12-3) from clinching home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Peterson had his lowest rushing total since getting 79 yards on Oct. 14 in a loss at Washington. He has 1,898 this season and needs 208 yards to break the NFL single-season rushing record held by Eric Dickerson. The Texans failed to score a touchdown for the first time since 2006.Ravens 33, Giants 14BALTIMORE Joe Flacco threw for 309 yards and two touchdowns as Baltimore won the AFC North. The Ravens (10-5) led 24-7 at halftime and cruised to the finish behind a shorthanded defense that harassed quarterback Eli Manning and limited New York (8-7) to 186 yards. Baltimore scored touchdowns on its first two possessions and amassed a season-high 533 yards including 289 in the first half alone. The victory ended a three-game skid for the Ravens and assured them of a home playoff game in the first weekend of January. The defending Super Bowl champion Giants (8-7) cant win the NFC East, but still have a chance to make the playoffs as a wild card.Broncos 34, Browns 12DENVER Denver won its 10th straight game as Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes for the 72nd time of his career. Denver (12-3) pulled into a tie for first place in the AFC with Houston. Manning finished with 339 yards on 30for-43 passing. Von Miller was in on two sacks for the Broncos, the second of which knocked Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden out of the game with a right shoulder injury. If Denver defeats Kansas City at home next week and Houston loses at Indianapolis, the Broncos would be the AFCs top seed.Bears 28, Cardinals 13GLENDALE, Ariz. Chicagos defense scored two touchdowns to keep the Bears playoff hopes alive. Charles Tillman returned an interception 10 yards for a score, the third pick hes brought back for a touchdown this season and the eighth overall by Chicago. Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 68 yards and a TD, breaking the Bears franchise record for yards receiving in a season in the process. Chicago (9-6) snapped a three-game losing streak and won for just the second time in seven tries. The Cardinals (5-10) lost for the 10th time in 11 games.Packers 55, Titans 7GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, Ryan Grant scored twice and Randall Cobb set a single-season franchise record for net yardage. The victory ensured the Packers (11-4) will at least be the NFCs No. 3 seed. They still have a shot at the No. 2 and the first-round bye that goes with it if Seattle beats San Francisco. Jake Locker was sacked seven times and picked off twice, and Tennessee (5-10) scored with 1:39 left to avoid the shutout.Patrtiots 23, Jaguars 16JACKSONVILLE Tom Brady overcame a rough start by throwing two touchdown passes for playoff-bound New England. Brady threw two interceptions in the first quarter, the second helping the Jaguars (2-13) build a 10-0 lead. But the Jaguars faded in the third quarter for the fourth consecutive week, lost for the 11th time in the last 12 games and set a franchise record for losses in a season. Brady hooked up with Wes Welker for a 2-yard score on the second play of the fourth quarter, putting the Patriots (11-4) ahead 23-13.Chargers 27, Jets 17EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. San Diego sacked Greg McElroy 11 times, ruining the quarterbacks first NFL start, and Philip Rivers threw two touchdown passes. McElroy, the third-stringer who was starting for the benched Mark Sanchez, moved the offense for the Jets (6-9) early but faced pressure all game. With a chance to get New York back into it with less than 5 minutes remaining, McElroy was sacked by Shaun Phillips and lost the ball. Phillips recovered and San Diego (6-9) sealed the win.Panthers 17, Raiders 6CHARLOTTE, N.C. Cam Newton threw for 171 yards and a touchdown and ran for 60 yards and another score as Carolina won for the fourth time in its last five games. The Panthers (6-9) held the Raiders to 189 total yards and 12 first downs in a game featuring several shoving matches, plenty of heated exchanges and six unnecessary roughness penalties including one that sidelined Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer for the day.Dolphins 24, Bills 10MIAMI Reggie Bush caught two touchdown passes and scored on a short run for Miami. Six minutes after they won, the Dolphins (7-8) were eliminated from playoff contention when Cincinnati beat Pittsburgh. The Bills (5-10) came into the game assured of missing the playoffs for the 13th consecutive year. Bushs first TD catches of the season covered 17 and 12 yards.Falcons 31, Lions 18DETROIT Matt Ryan got what he wanted, helping the Atlanta Falcons win a game they needed to earn home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Calvin Johnson had to settle for having a record-breaking night in yet another loss. Ryan matched a career high with four touchdown passes, two to Roddy White, and Atlanta led from start to finish in a 3118 victory over the Lions on Saturday. Johnson broke Jerry Rices NFL singleseason yards receiving mark of 1,848. Johnson also became the only player with 100 yards receiving in eight straight games and the first with 10 receptions in four games in a row in league history. He had 11 receptions for 225 yards, giving him 1,892 this season. Associated PressCincinnati Bengals' Josh Brown (3) celebrates hitting a 43-yard field goal with 4 seconds left in an NFL football game, as Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis (23) walks by on Sunday, Dec. 23, 2012, in Pittsburgh. Holder Kevin Huber is at right. The Bengals won 13-10. Associated PressOne year after putting together the NFLs worst record, the Indianapolis Colts are headed to the playoffs. Joining them on Sunday were the Cincinnati Bengals, finishing out the field in the AFC. The Colts (10-5) equaled the 2008 Miami Dolphins as the only teams to win at least 10 games after losing 14 or more the previous season. Top overall draft pick Andrew Luck completed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne late in the fourth quarter for a 20-13 victory at Kansas City. Cincinnati qualified for a second straight postseason berth for only the second time in franchise history, edging archrival Pittsburgh 1310. The Bengals have never gone to the playoffs in successive years that did not involve a strike-shortened season. Mission accomplished. Thats all I can say, Colts interim coach Bruce Arians said. Without getting emotional again, knowing that (coach Chuck Pagano) is going to be back Monday, the work week shouldnt be as stressful. For the Bengals (9-6), Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green with a 21-yard pass in the final moments, setting up Josh Browns 43yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining. The loss eliminated the Steelersfrom contention. Minnesotas 23-6 win at Houston prevented the Texans from earning home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. AFC South champion Houston (123) still can get that by winning at Indianapolis in the season finale. New England has won the AFC East, Denver the West. Baltimore clinched the North by beating the New York Giants 33-14, sending the defending Super Bowl champions to the brink of elimination. Washingtons 27-20 win at Philadelphia, combined with New Orleans beating Dallas 34-31 in overtime means the Redskins will win the NFC East by beating the Cowboys next week. But Dallas takes the division by winning that game at Washington. Green Bay clinched at least the third seed in the NFC when it routed Tennessee 55-7. The NFC North champs (11-4) still could wind up second overall and get a bye. Saturday night, NFC South winner Atlanta won 31-18 at Detroit to clinch home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs. NFL CAPSULES Playoff landscape comes together

Clearly out of the playoff picture. Sam Bradford tossed a pair of touchdown passes and rookie cornerback Janoris Jenkins scored his fourth TD of the season, helping the Rams keep their hopes for a winning record alive. Bradford connected with Lance Kendricks on an 80yard scoring play on the first play of the third quarter. The Rams (7-7-1) intercepted Freeman four times, turning three of the turnovers into TDs, including Jenkins interception and 41-yard return early in the second quarter. Steven Jackson rushed for 81 yards and one TD, moving within 10 yards of reaching 1,000 for the eighth consecutive season. The Rams can finish with a winning record for the first time since 2003 by beating Seattle next week. Bradford completed 13 of 27 passes for 196 yards and one interception. Kendricks finished with four receptions for 119 yards, while Jackson closed in on extending the NFLs longest current streak of 1,000-yard seasons rushing on 19 carries. Tampa Bay outgained the Rams 429 yards to 285, with Freeman going 30 of 54 for 372 yards and one TD. Mike Williams scored on a 61-yard reception and had seven catches for 132 yards. Vincent Jackson also had a big day with seven receptions for 108 yards, while the Rams limited rookie Doug Martin to 62 yards rushing on 18 attempts. St. Louis took advantage of their opportunities, and we had a lot of missed opportunities, Schiano said. We had plenty of chances to win the game. Williams slipped to the ground on Jenkins interception, but Freeman tried to force the ball into a crowd in the middle of the field when he was picked off by James Laurinaitis. Jenkins has scored on three of his four interceptions and has also returned a fumble for a touchdown. Jacksons 5-yard TD run in the closing seconds of the first half finished a 65-yard drive Bradford led after Laurinaitis interception, and the Rams broke it open with two more TDs in the first five minutes of the third quarter. Kendricks scored on the first play of the second half, grabbing a pass over the middle at his own 40 and rumbled to the end zone untouched with help from receiver Danny Amendola. Amendola shielded safety Mark Barron from making the tackle just before making just enough contact with another converging defender, Ahmad Black, to allow the tight end to cover the final 20 yards to give St. Louis a 21-6 lead. Three plays later, Freeman was intercepted for the third time, with Trumaine Johnsons pick at the Tampa Bay 30 leading to Bradfords 5-yard TD pass to Austin Pettis that made it 28-6 with 10:47 remaining in the third quarter. But unlike a week ago when the Bucs didnt seriously threaten to score until the closing seconds, Freeman managed to make this one more interesting. His TD throw to Williams pulled Tampa Bay within 15 midway through the third quarter. The Bucs continued to move the ball effectively, however the Rams stopped one drive at their 5 and another at the 3 to remain in control. We will get it straightened out, Schiano said. Notes: Tampa Bay went 0 for 3 in the red zone. ... The Bucs didnt have a sack, but allowed five to the Rams. ... Tampa Bay had the ball for 35:59, compared to the Rams 24:01. BUCSContinued from Page B1 Associated PressHONOLULU Jamaal Franklin had a double-double with 19 points and 15 rebounds and No. 18 San Diego State held off Indiana State 62-55 on Sunday in the Diamond Head Classic tournament in Honolulu. Chase Tapley scored 13 points and the Aztecs (11-1) won despite poor free-throw and 3-point shooting. San Diego State pulled ahead for good during a seven-point run that included five straight points from Tapley. With less than five minutes to play, Tapley drove to the basket and was stopped by Jake Odum, who was called for an excessive foul. Tapley made two free throws and a quick 3-pointer on the ensuing possession, giving the Aztecs a 51-44 lead. The Sycamores (6-4) got no closer than three points behind after that. Neither team established a clear advantage beyond a few key runs until San Diego State control late. The Aztecs went on a 9-1 run midway through the first half to take a 20-13 lead with just under eight minutes left, capped by a three-pointer from Tapley. But the Sycamores pulled to within three points at halftime, 28-25. San Diego State shot less than 24 percent (4 of 17) from 3-point range, and 64 percent (18 of 28) from the free throw line.Womens college basketballNo. 11 Penn State 82, NJIT 37STATE COLLEGE, Pa.

The Lady Lions (10-2), in their final game before starting Big Ten Conference play, raced to a 44-9 halftime lead against the Highlanders (6-7) of the Great West Conference. Bentley had six steals in the first half, when NJIT turned the ball over 15 times and shot 17.4 percent (4 of 23). The Lady Lions, who won their 12th straight home game, closed the half with a 24-2 run. Lucas scored 13 first-half points and was 5for-8 from 3-point range overall. She is shooting 52.6 percent behind the arc for the season. Melanie Griffin led the Highlanders with 10 points.

Associated PressThis image released by Warner Bros. shows Clint Eastwood in a scene from the movie Dirty Harry. It has been selected to be in the National Film Registry. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Tiny hobbit Bilbo Baggins is running circles around some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Peter Jacksons The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey took in $36.7 million to remain No. 1 at the box office for the secondstraight weekend, easily beating a rush of topname holiday newcomers. Part one of Jacksons prelude to his The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Warner Bros. release raised its domestic total to $149.9 million after 10 days. The Hobbit took a steep 57 percent drop from its domestic $84.6 million opening weekend, but business was soft in general as many people skipped movies in favor of last-minute Christmas preparations. The real winner this weekend might be holiday shopping, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Tom Cruises action thriller Jack Reacher debuted in second place with a modest $15.6 million debut, according to studio estimates Sunday. Based on the Lee Child best-seller One Shot, the Paramount Pictures release stars Cruise as a lone-wolf exmilitary investigator tracking a sniper conspiracy. Opening at No. 3 with $12 million was Judd Apatows marital comedy This Is 40, a Universal Pictures film featuring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprising their roles from the directors 2007 hit Knocked Up. Paramounts road-trip romp The Guilt Trip, featuring Knocked Up star Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand, debuted weakly at No. 6 with $5.4 million over the weekend and $7.4 million since it opened Wednesday. Playing in narrower release, Paramounts acrobatic fantasy Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away debuted at No. 11 with $2.1 million. A 3-D version of Disneys 2001 animated blockbuster Monsters, Inc. also had a modest start at No. 7 with $5 million over the weekend and $6.5 million since opening Wednesday. Domestic business was off for the first time in two months. Overall revenues totaled $112 million, down 12.6 percent from the same weekend last year, when Cruises Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol debuted with $29.6 million, according to Hollywood.com. Cruises Jack Reacher opened at barely half the level as Ghost Protocol, but with a $60 million budget, the new flick cost $100 million less to make. Starting on Christmas, Hollywood expects a big week of movie-going with schools out through New Years Day and many adults taking time off. So Paramount and other studios are counting on strong business for films that started slowly this weekend. Associated PressWASHINGTON Breakfast at Tiffanys, Dirty Harry and A League of Their Own will be preserved for their enduring significance in American culture by the Library of Congress, along with A Christmas Story and some pioneering sports movies. They are among 25 selections the library inducted Dec. 19 into the National Film Registry. Congress created the program in 1989 to preserve films for their cultural or historical significance. The latest additions bring the registry to 600 films that include Hollywood features, documentaries, independent films and early experimental flicks. The newest movie chosen for preservation is 1999s The Matrix, noted for its state-of-the-art special effects and computer-generated animation with a style that drew on Hong Kong action films and Japanese anime to change science fiction filmmaking, curators noted. The oldest film being preserved, The Corbett-Fitzsimmons Title Fight, dates back 115 years to 1897. Film curators said the boxing movie helped establish the film industry as a successful business, drawing on the sports popularity and controversy to generate $750,000 in income. Boxing was illegal in many states at the time but was made legal in Nevada, which hosted the fight. The film, with a running time of 100 minutes, became the longest movie ever produced at the time, showing the full course of the fight. Another pioneering sports film, They Call It Pro Football from 1967, was chosen for how it changed the way football was portrayed on screen. Before then, football films were mostly highlight reels. National Football League commissioner Pete Rozelle decided the success of the NFL depended on its television image, to capture the struggle of football and not just the end result on the scoreboard. The Librarian of Congress makes the selections each year after conferring with members of the National Film Preservation Board and receiving public nominations. To be considered, the films must be at least 10 years old. These films are not selected as the best American films of all time, but rather as works of enduring importance to American culture, said Librarian of Congress James Billington in announcing the selections. They reflect who we are as a people and as a nation. They also include some unforgettable characters. Audrey Hepburn landed the lead in 1961s Breakfast at Tiffanys even though writer Truman Capote wanted Marilyn Monroe for the part. Film critics and the audience decided Capote was wrong and hailed Hepburns portrayal. A League of Their Own from 1992 received many public nominations for the film registry over the years. With a cast that included Geena Davis, Tom Hanks, Madonna and Rosie ODonnell, it told the story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Numerous public nominations also were received for Born Yesterday from 1950 and A Christmas Story from 1983. Both were chosen this year. Other Hollywood features on the list include Anatomy of a Murder from 1959 and :10 to Yuma from 1957. Each title named to the registry will be preserved in the librarys Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation, built partially in a bunker in Culpeper, Va., or through collaborations with other archives or studios. Documentaries chosen this year include The Times of Harvey Milk, made in 1984 about San Franciscos first openly gay elected official who was assassinated in 1978, and Samsara: Death and Rebirth in Cambodia from 1990 about the struggle to rebuild after Pol Pots rule. This years selections include some firsts in film history. The 1914 film Uncle Toms Cabin, based on the anti-slavery novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe, had been adapted earlier for movies with white actors in the lead roles. But this version was the first feature-length U.S. film to star a black actor when Sam Lucas was chosen for the part. The library will also preserve the first Kodachrome Color Motion Picture Tests from 1922. The twocolor film features leading actresses posing and miming for the camera to demonstrate the new color film. Before then, to show film in color, black and white images either had to be hand-painted or colored with a stenciling process. Inventors, including scientists at Kodak, began experimenting with ways to create true color film. ENTERTAINMENT Page B4MONDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2012Preservation CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Birthday There are some strong indications that in the year ahead you might get a chance play a small but rewarding role in an enterprise. The worth of this opportunity will be determined by the intensity of your participation. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Even though it might not enhance your popularity, its still best not to do things that go against your better judgment. Dont wrongly yield to pressure. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Strive for continuity of purpose, so that you finish whatever you begin. Letting loose ends linger could leave a long-lasting bad effect. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) You might find yourself tempted to do something nasty to even an old score. If you do, youll find out the hard way that spite does not make right. Aries (March 21-April 19) Something youre planning has promising potential, but it will have to be nurtured every step of the way. The important thing is not to become impatient. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Appearances are more important than usual, so if you want others to follow your lead, put on a happy face. To be a leader, youll first have to behave like one. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Your intuitive perception is likely to be an enormously valuable asset. Sometimes it pays to ignore your common sense and depend on your hunches to lead the way. Cancer (June 21-July 22) When in a discussion with a friend, you shouldnt treat lightly anything that he or she takes seriously. If you do, your pal might not only stop coming to you for advice, but for friendship as well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Youll function quite well if you dont attempt to do too many things simultaneously. It would be better to do one thing at a time, seeing it through to its conclusion before you begin another. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Avoid trying to instruct another on how to do something youve never actually done yourself. If you turn out to be wrong, you could ruin some important plans. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your researching, probing and detecting skills are especially keen. There is a good chance you will have already effectively used them in helping you select gifts for friends and family. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You dont have to be told that there are always two sides to a story, so dont think differently now. If you should rush to judgment, you could offend the wrong person. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) The possibilities for fulfilling your ambitious expectations look to be exceptionally good today, mostly because youll do things in stages instead of in one fell swoop.

There are seven days left in the year. This is Christmas Eve. Todays Highlight: On Dec. 24, 1955, the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., fielded a series of phone calls from children wanting to know the whereabouts of Santa Claus after an ad in a local newspaper mistakenly gave the Centers number; thus began a tradition continued by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) of tracking Santas location the night before Christmas. On this date: In 1851, fire devastated the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., destroying about 35,000 volumes. In 1865, several veterans of the Confederate Army formed a private social club in Pulaski, Tenn., called the Ku Klux Klan. In 1906, Canadian physicist Reginald A. Fessenden became the first person to transmit the human voice (his own) as well as music over radio, from Brant Rock, Mass. In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower supreme commander of Allied forces in Europe as part of Operation Overlord. In 1968, the Apollo 8 astronauts, orbiting the moon, read passages from the Old Testament Book of Genesis during a Christmas Eve telecast. Ten years ago: Saddam Hussein said in an address read on television that Iraqis were ready to fight a holy war against the United States. Five years ago: President George W. Bush made Christmas Eve calls to 10 U.S. troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and other spots around the world, thanking them for their sacrifice and wishing them a happy holiday. One year ago: Pope Benedict XVI decried the increasing commercialization of Christmas as he celebrated Christmas Eve Mass. Todays Birthdays: Author Mary Higgins Clark is 85. Designer Kate Spade is 50. Singer Ricky Martin is 41. Author Stephenie Meyer (Twilight) is 39. Thought for Today: Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. The Rev. Norman Vincent Peale (born 1898, died this day in 1993).

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, DECEMBER24, 2012 B5 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Tom Bodett, an author, voice actor and radio host, said, In school, youre taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, youre given a test that teaches you a lesson. In bridge, you are given tests that you might pass by remembering previous lessons; but if you fail a test, hopefully you will remember the lesson for next time. This deal occurred during one of my playing lessons. East opened two diamonds, a textbook weak two. South overcalled three clubs, thinking that to pass with 13 points was wimpish. Then, though, when North advanced with three spades, that was forcing and painted South into a worse corner. (It is antipercentage to be able to land on a pinhead in these crowded auctions. Advancer must be allowed to investigate the right game without having to leap around.) South had no good bid. Eventually, he gambled on three no-trump despite his inflexible, weak diamond stopper. North also took his time, but finally passed. (Note that four spades should go down, declarer losing two diamonds and two spades.) The defense to three no-trump is also textbook. West leads the diamond jack (higher of a doubleton) and East ducks the trick, signaling encouragement with his eight. Then South has no chance. But note that if East takes the first trick, the contract can be made. The curious may work it out. In no-trump, whether you are declarer or a defender, if you are trying to establish a suit in which the opponents have one winner, make them take that winner as quickly as possible.

I love watching TV: sitcoms, news, dramas, reality shows, all of it. Being hearing impaired, I rely on closed captioning so I dont miss the story and commercials. But if the station doesnt provide closed captioning, I will change channels to find a program that does.In the newsroom, if the producers insist on playing music while the news anchor or onsite reporter is speaking, I cant hear the story and will change channels. (Speaking of news anchors, enunciation would be appreciated. Actually, that goes for everyone on TV.)And you advertisers? I recommend you view your commercials on mute and see how they come across. Im still laughing at the credit card commercial that somehow ties dogs and chocolate bars together. It looks suspiciously like dog droppings. I have no idea what youre selling. Hearing aids are wonderful, but they pick up every piece of noise, and background music becomes as loud as the dialogue. Its impossible to hear what is going on. As our population ages, there will be more hearing impaired persons. And young people arent far behind in experiencing hearing loss.So, TV stations and advertisers, if you want your message to get across to another 40 million customers and fans, please ensure that your audio programming can be clearly heard. Thanks. Frustrated Viewer in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada Dear Canada: We cannot tell you how many readers (even those without hearing problems) have complained that they cant hear dialogue over the background music, and that actors and news anchors dont articulate sufficiently to be understood. If programmers and advertisers realize that viewers change the channel when listening becomes difficult, perhaps they will pay more attention. Dear Annie: Looking for a Relationship, Too wants to know where the men are. Ill tell you where we are. We are in hiding. We left the dating pool because there are too many sharks. We are tired of sorting out the gold diggers, scheming manipulators, entitlement princesses, Toxic Thelmas and serial divorcees from the good women who are fewer and farther between.It is now a dangerous occupation to be a husband and father, so we no longer want long-term intimate relationships with women. A Good Man Gone Celibate Dear Celibate: You sound like someone whos had a bitter experience, and it soured you on all relationships. And while you probably speak for many men, we also wonder whether you are subconsciously attracted to women who come with trouble attached. It is often easier to blame the other party than examine your own issues too closely. Dear Annie: This is for all the young people looking to go overseas and the parents who would prefer they didnt. Our daughter was obsessed with everything Japanese: the people, culture, land, language, food. We knew she would find her way there, with or without our help, so we chose to indulge her obsession. We paid for three trips to Japan, Japanese language classes and a masters degree that allowed her to get a job there.She now lives and works in Japan, but we have never seen her happier. Her being so far away gives a whole new meaning to empty nest syndrome for us, but it is worth it. Bittersweet in S.C. Dear Bittersweet: Your daughter has been blessed with understanding parents who could afford to help her reach her dreams. You are all fortunate indeed.

Associated PressORLANDO Paul Millsap scored 18 points, Gordon Hayward added 17 and Utah survived a fourth-quarter rally to slip past Orlando. Orlando cut the lead to one in the waning seconds, but came up empty at the foul line. Utah snapped a two-game losing streak with its fifth consecutive regular-season victory over Orlando. Arron Afflalo had 20 points, and Nik Vucevic added 16 points and 16 rebounds to lead Orlando. Nets 95, 76ers 92NEW YORK Joe Johnson scored 22 points, and Gerald Wallace had 14 points, nine rebounds and six assists to lead Brooklyn to a win over Philadelphia. Deron Williams added 16 points to help the Nets end a six-game skid at home against the 76ers. Jrue Holiday led Philadelphia with 21 points, nine assists and six rebounds, Thadeus Young added 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Evan Turner had 15 points and seven rebounds.Knicks 94, Twolves 91NEW YORK Carmelo Anthony scored 19 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, rallying the New York Knicks to a 94-91 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. New York trailed from the opening minutes until Anthony scored eight straight points down the stretch. He had scored just nine points on 3-of-11 shooting in the first half, but had the final 12 for the Knicks to give them a 4-2 finish on their six-game homestand. J.R. Smith added 19 points and Tyson Chandler had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks, who will fly to Los Angeles later Sunday for their Christmas Day game against the Lakers.Spurs 129, Mavericks 91SAN ANTONIO Danny Green scored a career-high 25 points and the San Antonio Spurs spoiled former league MVP Dirk Nowitzkis season debut with a 129-91 rout of the Dallas Mavericks. Tony Parker had 18 points, Kawhi Leonard added 17, Tim Duncan 15 and Stephen Jackson 14 for the Spurs (21-8). After missing the Mavericks first 27 regular-season games, Nowitzki entered with 6:28 left in the first quarter to a hearty mix of cheers and boos. Nowitzki, who underwent surgery on his right knee Oct. 19, quickly picked up a rebound for Dallas and finished with eight points 3 for 4 from the field and six rebounds in 20 minutes.Trail Blazers 96, Suns 93PORTLAND, Ore. J.J. Hickson had 19 points and 15 rebounds for his seventh straight double-double, and the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Phoenix Suns for their fifth straight win. Rookie Damian Lillard had 25 points, including 18 in the second half. Sasha Pavolic and Lillard made consecutive 3-pointers as Portland pulled in front 92-85 with 4:02 left. The Suns got to within 94-91 on Marcin Gortats layup with 1:24 to go. After Lillards 19-foot, step-back jumper, Jared Dudley had a layup for the Suns to make it 96-93. Phoenix furiously tried to get a shot off, but Goran Dragic missed a 3-pointer, and Shannon Brown missed a short jumper.

She is housebroken, Heartworm-negative, and spayed. She is a very calm, gentle, affectionate older girl. However, she has just been diagnosed with mammary cancer. Her prognosis is unknown at this time, although she does not appear to be in any pain and is fairly active for her age. With good care she could still have a relatively good life. We volunteers at the shelter are hoping with all our hearts to find a compassionate, caring individual or family who would be willing to share their home with Peaches, which would most likely be her last home. When her time comes she would be euthanized at the shelter free of charge. She is a very gentle girl who causes no trouble whatsoever. She gets along with other dogs and with children, and is completely not interested in cats. She would fit into just about any home situation and be very happy there. We truly dont want the shelter to be the last home she knows. Is there any who would be able to open their heart and their home for this sweet older dog? Please call Joanne at 352-795-1288.
