Associated PressWASHINGTON A Capitol Hill deal to avert the fiscal cliff was proving elusive Sunday as a deadline to avert tax hikes on virtually every American worker and block sweeping spending cuts set to strike the Pentagon and other federal agencies grew perilously near. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell remained at odds on such key issues as the income threshold for higher tax rates and how to deal with inheritance taxes, among other issues. McConnell complained that Reid had yet to respond to a GOP offer made INSIDE DECEMBER 31, 2012 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 118 ISSUE 146 50 CITRUS COUNTY Dive in: Chronicle swimmer of year candidates /B1 www.chronicleonline.com INDEX Comics....................B6 Crossword................B5 Editorial....................A6 Entertainment..........B4 Horoscope................B4 Lottery Numbers......B3 Lottery Payouts........B4 Movies......................B6 Obituaries................A5 TV Listings................B5 Classifieds................B7 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Where do yo stand on fracking?

The city council backed the management plan, including adding a boardwalk that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service constructed during the year to give manatee watchers a place to stand without trampling on the banks. The plan was tweaked to drop a planned kayak launch to address concerns of congestion in the area. Instead, officials plan a nature discovery area. And officials with the city and wildlife service must still decide whether to build the visitor center on site or at a nearby shopping center. Officials say moving the visitor center offsite solves a parking dilemma at the property, but creates a funding obstacle for the welcome center. A coalition of agencies combined to buy the 54-acre property, home to the springs that attract dozens of manatees each winter, for $10.5 million in 2010. The city of Crystal River owns 70 percent and Southwest Florida Water Management District owns 30 percent. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service manages the property on the citys behalf. Other than regular open houses the next one is Jan. 19 to 20, weekend of the Manatee Festival the property is closed to the public. Eventually, it will be open and officials believe it will become a huge tourist attraction. City Manager Andy Houston and Michael Lusk, manager of the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, said little will be done on site until after the water management district completes the stormwater filtering system it is building on the property to capture water from nearby shopping center parking lots before it rolls Chronicle file Visitors at an open house at the Three Sisters Springs property were kept away from viewing manatees in an area where they coul d see residents across the canal.

The sassy cartoon lamb had an awful encounter with the family dog, which resulted in his deformity missing eyes. Some might say Lamby lost the battle. But did he? Wearing his blue-cuffed pants, Lambys owner discovered a plastic water bottle cap would conceal his missing eyes. Through the blue bottle cap, magic and wondrous powers evolved in Lambys life, creating a heartwarming story of hope, love and courage for children of all ages. Co-founders Byron and Tina Patterson established Love & Fleece LLC in Tarpon Springs in hopes of fueling positive inspirations for children in need. Our toys subliminally show kids that boldly accepting your imperfections can be liberating, that having a physical flaw can be like wearing a badge of courage, Patterson said. Lambys missing his eyes and he wears a goofy prosthetic, but his spirits whole and his confidence is strong. In fact, having a physical impairment is the very thing that makes his ego, as well as his heart, larger than life. Through original songs, drawings, poems, short stories and parodies, Patterson creates a message: spread the happy, not the Aquifer recharge concepts for North Florida controversial M ARK S COHIER Chiefland Citizen The North Florida Aquifer suffered during 2012. Groundwater levels throughout the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) saw record lows earlier in the year, due to drought and groundwater withdrawal. Springs quit flowing. Residential wells dried up. Coastal communities, such as Cedar Key, saw their municipal wells flooded with saltwater as the bubble of fresh groundwater that keeps it at bay became smaller and smaller. Levels came back up with the onset of two tropical storms, though, as some predicted, levels are beginning to fall again, dropping by an average of 1 foot for the Upper Floridan Aquifer, according to a recent report from SRWMD. Thats why the SRWMD, partnering with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, hired Atkins North America Inc. in July to undertake a study to determine the potential success of recharging the aquifer with reclaimed water and surface water. The study, still in its early phases, is a portion of a joint effort between the three agencies known as the North Florida Aquifer Replenishment Initiative which, according to the study thus far, would benefit lakes, springs, rivers and wetlands, and contribute to developing a sustainable water supply for the region. The agencies would like to recharge the aquifer and use it as a large storage tank. Four conceptual approaches were outlined in the latest Atkins report on the See AQUIFER / Page A7 See MAGICAL / Page A2 The study ... would benefit lakes, springs, rivers and wetlands, and contribute to developing a sustainable water supply for the region.

For every Lamby sold, the Pattersons donate an additional plush toy to a sick or needy child. Forty-two Lamby Lambpants, the first character in their planned line of plush toys, were given to Jessies Place a Citrus County child advocacy center in Beverly Hills. We wanted the kids to understand that just like this doll and his magical story that they dont have to be perfect just like he isnt perfect, said Joanne Peters, CEO and founder of Courtroom Dogs for Kids Inc. But he is special and loved like they are. Its really important for them to know to not believe everything they have been told since they were born, Peters said. Everything is going to be OK and you are not a loser, or this or that. Peters said Courtroom Dogs for Kids is an organization that has registered and trained therapy dogs that serve as calming companions to children who have been traumatized and who must testify to these circumstances. These dog companions visit Jessies Place and have noticed a difference in the children since they have received Lamby. Carol, a therapist at Jessies Place, tells me that they just love Lamby, said Lorraine Clark, vice president of Courtroom Dogs for Kids Inc. They just hold him and know that he is theirs and their protector. Its a reminder to them that there are people out there that love them and will take care of them and keep them safe. Thats exactly what Lamby was created for. No matter what your deficit is there is always someone there that loves you. The lamb is like a shield and friend to them when they are not feeling good. They have the lamb to bring with them wherever they are. Peters feels that Lamby is a constant reminder and companion. I dont care how old they are, I think they think that the unknown is scary, Peters said. When they have been taken out their home, no matter how bad it is its the known. As bad as it might be, its a lot better than the unknown. They are trying to find their way through this unknown and they dont know which way to go or what to do. They have Guardian ad Litems, therapists, Courtroom Dogs and all that, but at the end of the day they are by themselves. Now they are not they have Lamby. We all need something to hang onto at points in our lives. Saturday evening and reached out to Vice President Joe Biden, a longtime friend, in hopes of breaking the impasse. Biden assumed the lead role for Democrats, and a McConnell spokesman said the Kentucky Republican and the vice president were expected to negotiate by telephone into the night. Rank-and-file lawmakers left the Capitol on Sunday night with hopes their leaders would give them something to vote on when they returned Monday morning. One sign of progress came as Republicans withdrew a long-discussed proposal to slow future cost-of-living increases for Social Security recipients as part of a compromise to avoid the cliff. Democrats said earlier Sunday that proposal had put a damper on the talks, and Republican senators emerging from a closed-door GOP meeting said it is no longer part of the equation. I was really gratified to hear that Republicans have taken their demand for Social Security benefit cuts off the table. The truth is they should never have been on the table to begin with, Reid said late Sunday afternoon. There is still significant distance between the two sides, but negotiations continue. At stake are sweeping tax hikes and across-the-board spending cuts set to take effect at the turn of the year. Taken together, theyve been dubbed the fiscal cliff, and economists warn the one-two punch which leaders in both parties have said they want to avoid could send the still-fragile economy back into recession. Tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 expire at midnight Monday, and $109 billion in acrossthe-board cuts in federal spending this year would also begin this week. Workers could see more taxes withheld from their paychecks and federal agencies are likely to soon receive warning of possible furloughs if lawmakers fail to reach a deal to avert the cliff. The new Congress will be sworn in Thursday and would inherit the problem if the current crop of lameduck lawmakers cant find an answer before then. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said the two sides remained at odds over the income threshold for higher tax rates and tax levels on large estates. Republicans said that Democratic demands for new money to prevent a cut in Medicare payments to doctors and renew jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed should be financed with cuts elsewhere in the budget. Republicans also balked at a Democratic proposal to use new tax revenues to shut off the acrossthe-board spending cuts, known as a sequester in Washington-speak. President Barack Obama, in a televised interview, blamed Republicans for putting the nations shaky economy at risk. We have been talking to the Republicans ever since the election was over, Obama said in the interview that was taped Saturday and aired Sunday on NBCs Meet the Press. They have had trouble saying yes to a number of repeated offers. The mood is discouraged, said Sen. Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut inde pendent who caucuses with Democrats. The parties are much further apart than I hoped theyd be by now. The pessimistic turn came as the House and Senate returned to the Capitol for a rare Sunday session.

However, county planning staff will recommend that the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC) deny the request. Johannes and Christina Mar tens son, owners of four lots at the end of North Seneca Point, off West Fort Island Trail, have made an application to request the removal of a portion of the roadway that lies between these lots. The roadway is paved and serves as an L-shaped turnaround area within the Montezuma Waters Mobile Home Estates subdivision. It is the only turnaround on North Seneca Point. A similar application in 2007 was denied by the PDC. Government agencies have reviewed the new request and have expressed willingness to work with the applicant, with the exception of the Land Development Division/Engineering Section. It responded that vacating the roadway would not allow for the safe turnaround of long wheel-base vehicles, such as garbage trucks and buses. The request also was not justifiable under state standards. The Land Development Division staff also noted that approval of this application would result in land-locking several of the petitioners lots. The applicant would need to submit an application to replat the lots and receive staff approval before placement of this application on the agenda of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Therefore, staff recommended denial as the request would be inconsistent with the countys Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code. The PDC reviews development applications and makes recommendations to the BOCC on changes to the Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code. The PDC has final action on variance and conditional use applications. The PDC also provides direction to staff regarding land use amendments, as well as test amendments on development issues. If any person decides to appeal any decision made by the board with respect to any matter considered at this meeting or hearing, he or she will need a record of the proceedings and, for such purpose, he or she may need to insure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, including testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.

Sarasota New Years Eve pineapple drop returns A glowing pineapple is coming back to ring in the new year in southwest Florida. Sarasotas traditional pineapple drop was scrubbed last year as organizers and sponsors fought over funding, security and other issues. This year, local businesses formed a group to work with the events longtime organizer. Ernie Ritz has organized the event since 2000. He told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune the New Years Eve pineapple drop festivities will begin this afternoon and will include carnival rides and live music. The pineapple will drop over downtown Sarasotas Main Street at midnight tonight. From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS In August 2007, Jared Mann, then 19 years old, woke up from a nine-day coma with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). He had been driving back from registering for classes at Florida State University when he fell asleep at the wheel and crossed onto the grass median. He awoke and turned back onto U.S. 19, just south of Tallahassee, lost control of his car and hit a pole. He was admitted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and later transferred to Orlando Regional Medical Center. Besides the brain injury, Jared also broke his pelvis in two places and his left arm was badly bruised. That he woke up at all was a surprise to his doctors and a welcome relief after an emotionally agonizing nine days for his parents, Jerry and June Mann. Now, five and a half years later, 24-year-old Jared is a graduate student at FSU, nearing completion of a masters program in social work, with a potential focus on working with U.S. military personnel returning from the battlefield with brain injuries. He said his neurologist is urging him to use his firsthand experience with TBI and choose an internship with the VA. I have to pick out an internship in February at the university, Jared said from his family home in Inverness during his holiday break from classes. He said, based on his skill set and personal experience, an internship could lead to a career with the VA in that area. His doctor has told him theres nothing more authentic than someone whos been where you are, Mrs. Mann said. He had to learn how to walk, talk and eat and do everything all over again. For the most part, Jared has fully recovered from his injuries. His major residual disability is his eyesight. Because his occipital lobe was damaged, he has double-vision problems with depth perception. Ive had one corrective eye surgery, but my eyesight will never be the same, he said. Ive adjusted and adapted. To drive, he wears prism glasses, which help put the double images together. I cant play any contact sports anymore or sports where you have to track a ball, like baseball or basketball, he said. Jared competed as a weightlifter and was on the baseball team at Citrus High School, so that has been an adjustment for him, as well. I still lift weights in the gym, he said, adding that when he starts to think about his challenges, he reminds himself others have much worse things to deal with. Actually, there are some positives to my experience, he said. Because of nerve damage to his left side, part of the therapy for the lefthander was to learn to use his right hand. Im now ambidextrous, he said. In many ways, my experience makes me more marketable. His parents said this whole experience has affected them all profoundly. As a parent, in times of crisis youre surprised at what you can do, Jerry Mann said. After he woke up from the coma, when Jared told me he was going back to Florida State, I said to myself, Thats never going to happen, but I dont have the gall to tell him. But it did happen. He was determined and went to the weight room three times a week and rehab three times a week. Im proud of him, Mann said. The brain surgeon wrote him off, but hes doing things they said hed never do. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927.

College student with traumatic brain injury makes inspiring recovery From coma to comeback Soldier surprises mom with Christmas visit Lecanto man faces fraud charge C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerA Lecanto man was alleged to have used his employers credit card to offer strangers a gasoline price discount, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Deputies arrested Darryl Wayne Jarvis, 50, of West Woodland Ridge Drive, Lecanto, at 11:49 a.m. Friday on a felony charge of scheme to defraud for less than $20,000. According to a deputys report, Jarvis employer, a Homosassabased concrete contractor, contacted the CCSO after learning that someone wearing company-issued clothing had been seen Nov. 30 at a gas station at the intersection of County Road 491 and State Road 44 soliciting motorists to use the credit card to fill their tanks in exchange for half the value in cash for payment. The employer checked his fleet fuel account for the credit card and found about 29 unauthorized fuel purchases had been transacted between Nov. 27 and Nov. 30. The card had been assigned to a diesel-engine vehicle, but all the unauthorized purchases were for gasoline. According to the employers information to deputies, the credit card had been assigned to Jarvis, who had been employed by the company for eight months and had sole use of the vehicle to which the credit card was assigned. The employer also stated Jarvis had last reported for work on Nov. 21, at which time Jarvis said he had to leave for a family members funeral services out of state. However, when the employer reviewed company video surveillance tapes, he observed Jarvis on Nov. 24 entering the businesss locked compound and removing a concrete saw. Jarvis had been charged with theft of the saw, but denied using the credit card, according to the report. Deputies stated they contacted a witness to the unauthorized credit card use on Dec. 12. The witness positively identified Jarvis from a photo array as the person who attempted to use the credit card for a sale of gasoline on Nov. 30. According to the report, a deputy contacted Jarvis on Dec. 28 at the Citrus County Detention Facility, where he was incarcerated on other charges. A deputy said Jarvis was read the Miranda warning and Jarvis admitted taking the saw, but denied using the credit card even after being advised he had been identified using the card by a witness. His bond was set at $2,000. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline. com or 352-564-2916. M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Lisa Mangelsen served in the military, so she knows all about spending time away from families during the holidays. Her two adult children, Lacey and Derek, are both in the Army, stationed at separate bases in Texas. She didnt plan to see either one this Christmas. So it seemed a little odd on Christmas Eve when her youngest daughter, Desir, casually wondered how her mom would react if Derek just, you know, showed up. I said Id be happy, Mangelsen said she told her daughter, then asked her: Is there something youre not telling me? And then there he was, surprising his mom in the kitchen as she opened a can of fruit. I turned around and he was standing behind me, Mangelsen said. My mouth just dropped. I had that deerin-the-headlights look. I just started bawling. He had tears in his eyes too. Derek, 19, is a private first class at Fort Bliss, Texas. He left in June and the last time Mangelsen saw him was September, when he was home for 10 days. His sister is a combat medic at Fort Hood, Texas, and she served three months in Afghanistan. Derek, who left Friday for Tampa and then Saturday back to Texas, said his unit is headed to Louisiana for a month to help train soldiers being deployed to Afghanistan. He said his future may include ranger school and he is not scheduled for deployment until 2014. His father, Dennis Loving of Williamsburg, Va., and mother are both Navy veterans. Derek said he knew that wasnt his calling. I dont like being out on the water, he said. I like being on the ground. Darryl Jarvis faces felony charges.

into Kings Bay. That project is expected to occur in 2013. Meanwhile, the city is expected to move ahead in January with a $2.4 million upgrade of Cutler Spur Boulevard. Work should begin in March and be completed before the years end, Houston said. Government officials agreed the entrance to the Three Sisters property will be off Cutler Spur, so the entrance will not be built until after the road project is completed. Lusk said officials do not want access at the current entrance off Kings Bay Drive because its in a residential neighborhood. The biggest issue concerning the Three Sisters project in 2012 came from residents who live across from the property along canals who wanted to close off manatee-viewing access because of the potential for tourists gawking at them in their yards. Lusk said in an interview he was surprised with the opposition, considering that before the property was purchased a developer had approved plans for homes and townhouses. With what were proposing, 80 to 85 percent of it will be left untouched, he said. Its going to become more wild, not less. In 15 years when people see how well Three Sisters turned out, theyll be glad they moved next to it. The management plan, approved by the city council in June, includes two manatee viewing areas construction to somewhat limit the field of vision to allow for an element of privacy for residents across the canal.

Today's active pollen: juniper, maple, oak Todays count: 7.6/12 Tuesdays count: 9.7 Wednesdays count: 9.8 For the RECORD HOW YOUR LAWMAKERS VOTEDKey votes for the week ending: Dec. 28 By Voterama in Congress Government Spy Powers: Senators voted, 73-23, to renew the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act through 2017. This law authorizes government spying without specific warrants on foreigners' electronic messages passing through telecommunications switching points in the U.S., among other provisions. A yes vote was send HR 5949 to President Obama. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, Yes. Fourth Amendment Protections: Senators refused, 12-79, to require search warrants for government inspections of customer records held by firms such as Internet service providers, credit cards and banks. The Supreme Court has held that warrantless "third party" searches do not violate the Fourth Amendment's privacy protections. A yes vote backed the amendment to HR 5949 (above). Nelson, No; Rubio, No. Spying on Americans: Senators refused, 43-52, to require minimal public disclosure of the extent to which U.S. citizens' communications are inadvertently collected in spying authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (HR 5949, above). The law requires such intercepts to be expunged or disregarded, but there is no public oversight to see if that occurs. A yes vote backed the requirement. Nelson, No; Rubio, No. FISA Court Rulings: Senators refused, 37-54, to require the secretive federal courts that oversee the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to eventually release their opinions fully or in summaries with redactions to protect national security. A yes vote backed the amendment to HR 5949 (above). Nelson, No; Rubio, No. Hurricane Sandy Aid: Senators approved, 61-33, $60.4 billion in disaster aid to fund recovery from Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast and benefit other parts of the country as well. At least $13 billion would be spent on construction of measures such as flood controls to prevent similar damages in the future. A yes vote was to send HR 1 to the House. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. GOP disaster aid: Senators defeated, 41-54, a Republican bid to reduce HR 1 (above) from $60.4 billion to $23.8 billion and bar aid that is not intended for communities and individuals directly harmed by Hurricane Sandy. The aid would be released over the next three months with the possibility of increments starting in April. A yes vote was to send the GOP plan to the House. Nelson, No; Rubio, Yes. Key votes ahead: There is a possibility, however remote, that the 112th Congress will take up a bill to avert the so-called fiscal cliff before it gives way to the 113th Congress on Jan. 3. 2012 Thomas Reports Inc. Call: 202-667-9760. QUESTION: Do you favor gun-law reforms? No. Just enforce the laws already on the books. 65 percent (51 votes) Yes. Semi-automatic weapons that can shoot multiple rounds of ammo should not be sold to the general public. 24 percent (19 votes) No. I wouldnt be opposed to reforms but with all the weapons already out there, more laws wouldnt have an impact. 4 percent (3 votes) Yes. Without doing so, we can expect more tragic mass-slayings. 8 percent (6 votes) Total votes: 79.

O PINION Page A6 MONDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2012 Stop the violence Violence is engrained in the American psyche; Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin or better known as H. Rap Brown, said it correctly when he stated Violence is as American as cherry pie. Sandy Hook is not a gun issue as much as it is a violence issue. There will be a lot of crying, praying and investigating all necessary for our national mental health, but all of it is after the fact. A gunman blasted his way into an elementary school, bypassing the door buzzer and entrance security. It doesnt matter how many laws you have against guns, guys like this who are intent on doing violence will always be able to get what they want one way or another. I fear we are going to waste a lot of time arguing about new gun laws. They never seem to get anywhere in this country. What we must do and do now is keep the crazies and the weapons out of the schools by any means possible. Right now, our school board should rethink school entry policy and hire additional security that is armed. I dont mean little, old retired police officers who havent fired a gun in years, or teachers who are serving collateral duties, or even the School Resource Officers who are not looking for the serious bad guys they would probably be the first ones shot by any committed killer. I mean men and women similar to the security force surrounding the nuclear power plant in Crystal River. Even if it means we have to reconstruct the schools with an eye toward security, bulletproof glass, security designed entrance ways, state-of-the-art surveillance, etc. If it means creating a new taxing district for our school board, and Im sure it would, then so be it. President Obama said it, This must stop. I didnt support our president in his recent run for the White House nor in his first run, but I do now. God bless him, God bless us and God bless the Sandy Hook 26. Richard Dick Callahan Crystal River W elcome to 2013! How are you doing with your resolutions? Did you fall into the trap of making a commitment to yourself to finally, once and for all, ditch your vices and be the person you always wanted to be? The University of Scrantons Journal of Clinical Psychology estimates approximately 45 percent of Americans will make a New Years Resolution in 2013. Here is a list of the top 10: lose weight; get organized; spend less, save more; enjoy life to the fullest; staying fit and healthy; learn something exciting; quit smoking; help others in their dreams; fall in love; and spend more time with family. Isnt it interesting most of these are centered on ourselves? We live in a very me-centric world, so this is not really surprising. Only 1.5 of these 10 goals focuses on other people. I say 1.5 because the one about family does really include me, right? What would happen if the 45 percent of us who commit to some sort of resolution instead committed to the resolve to improve our community? In Citrus County, that would mean 63,450 people walking around town with a better outlook, a smile rather than a frown, listening instead of talking. Imagine if we committed to a revolution versus a resolution! From where I sit, the sight of the result is so beautiful I can hardly stand it! I visited Citrus United Basket just a few days before Christmas. They opened their doors to invite needy folks from the community in to shop for their children and pick up some food for their holiday celebrations. The line was nearly wrapped around the building. Sitting there watching the line grow, I was wondering how we could shorten it. Obviously, the folks in the line are unemployed or under-employed. The money coming in cant keep up with the money going out. Yet, we know there are more than 600 open jobs in our county. How can we move the folks in that line into those jobs? Workforce Connection recently released its Jobs Skills Gap Study findings, and overwhelmingly, our workforce is not qualified to fill the empty jobs. So employers continue to fill our Citrus County jobs with folks from out of the county. If that doesnt just stop you in your tracks, I dont know what will. Our community steps up like no other. But we continue to step up with temporary fixes. We have to make a resolution to make a revolution. We have a fantastic technical school as well as a four-year college right here in our county. The unemployed or under-employed in our county will need further education to get the qualifications and credentials to obtain the open jobs. Not only will that fill open jobs in our community, but if our collective workforce is more accomplished, we will more easily attract new employers to our county. All of this sounds logical, but it wont happen overnight. Our United Way is committed to the three building blocks of successful lives: education, income and health. As has already been illustrated, education and income truly work in tandem. Health is just as easily tethered to these two, as folks with more income can afford healthier lifestyles. Daily, we work on identifying ways to reach across the sectors of our community to bring folks in need to the place where they can achieve family-sustaining income. On Jan. 7, a group of handpicked individuals will begin the work to complete their GED. United Way has successfully forged a relationship with WTI and Workforce Connection to facilitate the educational piece of this goal. Furthermore, we are bringing in resources to break down the barriers that exist in the lives of this group of people. Whether its transportation, child care or some other roadblock, we are ready to meet those challenges so this group can take the steps necessary to achieve. I recently read When Helping Hurts, by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert. It really underlines Band-aids are not enough. We must dig deeper to see impactful change. Financial resources are not the only thing a needy family is lacking. We cant just pay the rent and walk away. Food for a week isnt enough either. Handing large sums of money to someone who cant balance a checkbook hurts the situation more than it helps. We must radically change the way we look at charitable efforts. Otherwise, we must resolve now to be prepared to support an everincreasing dependent society. Rather than offering financial resources, could we give more? Maybe a person in need really needs advice, guidance or someone to just listen. But lets be honest, writing a check is easier than exposing ourselves to the vulnerable place of creating a relationship with someone who is living outside of our circle. Thats why I am challenging you to consider a revolution in 2013 as your resolution. Consider ways you can make our community better. Here are my top 10: Volunteer some time to a GED student at WTI. Write a letter of encouragement to a struggling single parent. Give your expertise or advice to someone who needs it. Smile. Withhold your negative comments from a conversation. Give thanks. Let your words offer praise, not cause hurt. Listen, dont talk. Suppress your skepticism and make a contribution. Take time to see life through someone elses situation. Your work can strengthen my work and we can see a brighter tomorrow. If we all join hands, we can improve our community. Imagine the moms and dads who had to stand in line for toys in 2012, obtaining a better job in 2013 and buying toys for their kids and possibly dropping toys in the Toys for Tots bin. Can you see it? I can. Join me in the revolution. Thats my resolution. Amy Meek is CEO of United Way of Citrus County. Call 353-795-5483 or visit www. citrusunitedway.org. Resolve to perform what your ought.

Earlier this month, a nursing assistant driving to work saw a hand waving from a field in Homosassa Springs. She turned her car and drove through a field to come to the aid of an elderly woman who had fallen and could not get back home. The woman had been in the field in cold, rainy weather for two days. Her rescuer deserves credit for making the effort to see what the waving hand meant, and for getting aid to the woman on the ground. She went out of her way to help another person in need. This tale of human kindness is also a cautionary tale for many residents of our community who live without family nearby. When a person lives with a spouse or other family members, an unexpected absence, like not returning from a walk or coming home after work, is quickly noticed. However, for someone living alone, the situation is different. For these people, the risk of something happening and no one knowing for some time is very real. For those who live alone, this event underscores the importance of establishing some method through which a responsible person can be notified if the individual is missing. This can be as simple as friends or neighbors routinely checking with the person, or as complex as belonging to a group whose goal is to make routine contact with its members. Regardless of the method, the goal is to ensure if a person suffers some problem in his or her home or outside, he or she does not end up in the cold rain or worse because no one knew he or she were missing. In a community where many people live alone, this is a matter of real personal safety. THE ISSUE: Elderly woman rescued after two days in a field.OUR OPINION: A good deed and a cautionary tale.

Marc Knighton Court, Key No. 4, Lecanto, FL 34461. matter, though each will need to be studied further for their likelihood of success. The first involves using wastewater from the SJRWMD area using direct and indirect methods of recharge for portions of the aquifer in that district. Direct recharge involves injecting the water deep into wells. Indirect uses ponds, wetlands, sinkholes, mine pits and other such features to recharge the upper levels of the aquifer. The second plan involves capturing and storing water from the Upper Suwannee River for treatment and direct recharge into the aquifer. The third considers capturing floodwater from floodplains on the Upper Suwannee for storage and indirect recharge, and the last calls for capture and storage of surface water in the SJRWMD area into the aquifer. But some of these techniques have proven controversial. Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, president of Our Santa Fe River, has followed issues associated with aquifer recharge for years. I have been telling them that I have a concern about the chemicals that they cannot remove, MalwitzJipson said in a recent phone interview with regard to treated wastewater sent into the aquifer. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and FDEP have standards about the removal of solids and biodegradable organic compounds, but most treatment processes are not designed to remove things such as pharmaceuticals, detergents or chemicals from plastics, all of which, according to Malwitz-Jipson, act as endocrine disruptors. The endocrine system in animals, including humans, acts as the bodys means for communication in regulating glands, hormones and cellular receptors. A 2007 study by the U.S. Geological Survey determined wastewater caused endocrine disruption in certain fish, causing the males to begin producing a female egg-yolk protein. Wastewater also often contains known carcinogens and drug-resistant bacteria and viruses. But in areas where wastewater is not being considered, such as on the Upper Suwannee River, MalwitzJipson said there are also concerns with dissolved oxygen put into the aquifer from direct recharge methods that have been shown to release naturally occurring radioactive material in the rock and poisonous metals such as arsenic. An early study by USGS showed an appreciable amount of uranium (25 parts per million) occurs in the limestone in the Floridan Aquifer and that more than 30 percent of the uranium can be leached from the rock under oxidizing conditions in the laboratory. The report went on to state the data was especially significant to aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) in Florida because ASR areas contain more dissolved oxygen than what would naturally occur within the aquifer. Arsenic is also released, the study showed, though levels of both arsenic and uranium appear to decline as dissolved oxygen-rich water is injected and then removed over several cycles. Still, this is no comfort to some. It makes sense that once the exposed pyritic deposits have reacted with the oxygen and mixing occurs that levels would drop. The trick is that it is unpredictable. In our part of the world it might poison a season of a crop or a herd of cattle before any realized there was a problem, said Annette Long, of Save Our Suwannee. An alternative to ASR is shallow injection through the use of wetlands, she said. We wrecked them all by draining them, but if we take treated effluent and allow it to recharge from the surface, like its supposed to, it solves a lot of problems, Long said. Cutting down on the number of millions-of-gallonsper-day consumptive use permits would be a cheaper option, she said, instead, the water management districts are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on studies to determine if artificial groundwater recharge using wastewater, floodwater, deep aquifer water from mine wells and plain old river water will solve the problem. They are doing this because pumping ground water is the way we have always done it in Florida, Long said. What they arent doing is mandatory conservation. Another thing that doesnt seem to be on the table is complete re-use of wastewater. Clean it up to drinking water standards and use it again, instead of pumping new groundwater. Capturing floodwaters from floodplains on the Suwannee River isnt an answer, either, she said. Floodwaters are important, too. The water flowing down the Suwannee River, even during floods, is not extra water, she said. Its important for fisheries, clams, oyster beds and sea life where the river meets the Gulf. Who decides that the existing sport and commercial fishing, shellfish and tourism industry is less important than issuing new water permits for housing developments, new industrial developments and new farmland? Long said. Its got to stop, she said. All you have to do is look at the lakes, look at the springs and rivers to see there is a terrible problem. The science is clear and settled record low flows and rising salinity. For the water management district to be spending millions of taxpayer dollars to fix our water crisis with Band aid projects while continuing to hand out new water use permits is illegal and wrong. We need our leaders to follow the rules and to open their eyes and see the facts.

Bush was hospitalized Nov. 23 in Houston for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough and moved to intensive care on Dec. 23 after he developed a fever. On Saturday, spokesman Jim McGrath said Bush was moved out of intensive care into a regular hospital room again after his condition improved. The unfinished obituary appeared on Der Spiegels website for only a few minutes Sunday before it was spotted by Internet users and removed. Chavez suffers new complications CARACAS, Venezuela Hugo Chavez has suffered new complications following his cancer surgery in Cuba, his vice president said Sunday, describing the Venezuelan leaders condition as delicate. Vice President Nicolas Maduro did not give details about the complications, which he said came amid a respiratory infection. Maduro spoke in a televised address from Cuba. Men shoot 12, kill one at quinceanera MEXICO CITY A Mexican official said armed men stormed into a quinceanera party in the northern Mexico city of Monterrey and killed a man and injured 11 guests. The Nuevo Leon state official said the gunmen arrived near midnight on Saturday at the party for a girls 15th birthday, a traditional Latin American celebration much like a Sweet 16. The official spoke to The Associated Press on Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release information. The aggressors were looking for a man and once they found Julio Cesar Cruz inside the dance hall they killed him, the official said. Family members who tried to protect him before he died were also wounded. French troops go to Central Africa BANGUI, Central African Republic As rebels advance in Central African Republic, France has deployed an additional 180 troops to protect its interests. Col. Thierry Burkhard told The Associated Press on Sunday the reinforcements arrived Sunday from nearby Gabon, bringing the total French military force in the capital, Bangui, to nearly 600. The troops are to protect French residents in the capital, which many fear will be attacked by the rebels. In another security measure, President Francois Bozize imposed a curfew from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m. Bozize earlier appealed to France for help against the rebels, but Paris said it would only protect French interests. World BRIEFS From wire reports GOP govs. walk balance beam on health care law Associated PressATLANTA Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who made a fortune as a health care executive, long opposed President Barack Obamas remake of the health insurance market. After the Democratic president won reelection, the Republican governor softened his tone. He said he wanted to have a conversation with the administration about implementing the 2010 law. With a federal deadline approaching, he also said while Florida wont set up the exchange for individuals to buy private insurance policies, the feds can do it. In New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie held his cards before saying he wont set up his own exchange, but hes avoided absolute language and said he could change his mind. Hes also leaving his options open to accept federal money to expand Medicaid insurance for people who arent covered. The caveat, Christie said, is whether Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius can answer my questions about its operations and expense. Both Republican governors face reelection in states Obama won twice, Christie in 2013 and Scott in 2014. And both will encounter wellfinanced Democrats. Their apparent struggles on the issue, along with other postures by their GOP colleagues elsewhere, suggest political uncertainty for Republicans as the Affordable Care Act starts to go into effect two years after clearing Congress without a single Republican vote. The risks also are acute for governors in Democratic-leaning or swing-voting states or who know their records will be parsed should they seek the presidency in 2016 or beyond. Its a tough call for many Republican governors who want to do the best thing for their state but dont want to be seen as advancing an overhaul that many Republicans continue to detest, said Whit Ayers, a consultant in Virginia whose clients include Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee, a Republican who didnt announce his rejection of a state exchange until days before Sebeliuss Dec. 14 deadline. Indeed, cracks keep growing in the near-unanimous Republican rejection of Obamas health care law that characterized the GOPs political messaging for the last two years. Five GOP-led states Idaho, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah are pressing ahead with state insurance exchanges. Ongoing monitoring by The Associated Press showed another five Republican-led states are pursuing or seriously a partnership with Washington to help run the new markets. Democrats, meanwhile, hope to use the law and Republican inflexibility to their advantage, betting that more Americans will embrace the law once it expands coverage. The calculus for voters, Democrats assume, will become more about the policy and less about a polarizing president.

Honoring the fallen Envoy warns of failed state in Syria Predicts many deaths in coming year Associated PressBEIRUT The international envoy seeking to end Syrias civil war warned Sunday the failure of the government and the rebels to pursue a political solution could lead to the full collapse of the Syrian state and threaten the worlds security. Lakhdar Brahimi, who represents the United Nations and the Arab League, said as many as 100,000 people could be killed in the next year as Syria moves toward Somalization and rule by warlords. Brahimi has reported little progress in his mission to push forward a peace plan for Syria first presented in June at an international conference in Geneva. The proposal calls for an open-ended cease-fire and the formation of a transitional government to run the country until new elections can be held and a new constitution drafted. But so far, neither the regime of President Bashar Assad nor the scores of rebels groups fighting his forces across the country have shown any interest in negotiations. The rebels political leadership has called Assads departure a prerequisite for any political solution, and it is unlikely that the oppositions National Coalition could even stop rebels on the ground from continuing to fight. Likewise, it is doubtful that top members of Assads regime will voluntarily give up power. The Syrian government has remained officially mum on Brahimis plan, which he has pushed in the past week in meetings with Assad in Damascus, with top Russian officials in Moscow and on Sunday with the head of the Arab League in Cairo. Speaking alongside Nabil Elaraby on Sunday, he estimated that 100,000 people could be killed if the 21month conflict continues for another year. Since meeting Assad early last week, Brahimi has given no indication how his plan was received. When asked Sunday if there is any willingness among the opposition to enter a political process, Brahimi said, No, there isnt. This is the problem. Syrias crisis began in March 2011 with political protests against Assad. The conflict has since evolved into a civil war. Anti-regime activists said more than 45,000 people have been killed. Associated PressWASHINGTON Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was admitted to a New York hospital Sunday after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month. Clintons doctors discovered the clot Sunday while performing a follow-up exam, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said. He would not elaborate on the location of the clot but said Clinton is being treated with anticoagulants and would remain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor the medication. Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion, Reines said in a statement. They will determine if any further action is required. Clinton, 65, fell and suffered a concussion while at home alone in mid-December as she recovered from a stomach virus that left her severely dehydrated. The concussion was diagnosed Dec. 13 and Clinton was forced to cancel a trip to North Africa and the Middle East that had been planned for the next week. Clinton was also forced to cancel Dec. 20 testimony before Congress about a scathing report into the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The report found that serious failures of leadership and management in two State Department bureaus were to blame for insufficient security at the facility. Clinton took responsibility for the incident before the report was released, but she was not blamed. Some conservative commentators suggested Clinton was faking the seriousness of her illness and concussion to avoid testifying, although State Department officials vehemently denied that was the case. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hospitalized Hillary Clinton admitted to N.Y. hospital.

Peterson rushed into history in the third quarter with a 20-yard run, giving him 2,009 on the season. The Minnesota Vikings running back entered the game against the rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday needing 102 yards to join O.J. Simpson, Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Terrell Davis, Jamal Lewis and Chris Johnson in the 2,000-yard club. Brees eclipses 5,000 yards for third timeNEW ORLEANS Drew Brees has passed for more than 5,000 yards, making him the only player to do so in a season three times. The Saints quarterback surpassed the coveted yardage mark with a touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham in the third quarter of Sundays game against the Carolina Panthers. That was also the 41st scoring pass for the season for Brees, the only quarterback to pass for 40 TDs in consecutive seasons. Brees is one of four quarterbacks in NFL history to pass for 5,000 yards in a season. Dan Marino was the first in 1984. Brees was the second in 2008. In 2011, Brees, New Englands Tom Brady and Detroits Matt Stafford all hit that mark. Brees 5,476 yards passing in 2011 is an NFL record.Spanish golfer Miguel Jimenez breaks shinMADRID Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez has broken his right shinbone and will be sidelined for up to five months. Jimenez said in a statement Sunday that he had surgery on his leg after injuring it while skiing. Jimenez was a vice captain on Europes Ryder Cup-winning team in September. In November, the 48-year-old Jimenez became the oldest European Tour winner by capturing his third Hong Kong Open title. He has 19 career European Tour titles.Serena opens season with comfortable winBRISBANE, Australia Serena Williams opened her season with a 6-2, 6-1 win over fellow American Varvara Lepchenko in the first round of the Brisbane International on Sunday, showing glimpses of the game that made her the most dominant player on the womens tennis tour in 2012. After saving five break points as she adjusted to a strong breeze in the first game, Williams raced to a 4-0 lead and was rarely troubled by the 21st-ranked Lepchenko.

Associated PressNEW YORK After two days of questions and answers, the NHL and the players association now need to figure out if they are ready to bargain again in what could be a last chance to save the hockey season. The sides had a series of informational discussions by conference call and in face-to-face meetings with staff members that lasted much of Saturday and concluded Sunday. Those talks were spurred by the nearly 300page contract proposal the NHL presented to the union Thursday. It isnt yet clear if this offer will swiftly lead to new bargaining, perhaps as early as Sunday or Monday. There have been no negotiations since the sides met with a federal mediator Dec. 13 The union said it was having internal discussions Sunday afternoon. All games through Jan. 14 have been canceled, claiming more than 50 percent of the schedule. The NHL wants to reach a deal by Jan. 11 and open the season Jan. 19, with a 48-game schedule. Bargaining sessions with only the NHL and union havent been held since Dec. 6, when talks abruptly ended after the players association made a counterproposal to the leagues previous offer. The league said that offer was contingent on the union accepting three elements unconditionally and without further bargaining. The NHL then pulled all existing offers off the table. Two days of sessions with mediators the following week ended without progress. A person familiar with key points of the offer told The Associated Press that the league proposed raising the limit of individual free-agent contracts to six years from five seven years if a team re-signs its own player; raising the salary variance from one year to another to 10 percent, up from 5 percent; and one compliance buyout for the 2013-14 season that wouldnt count toward a teams salary cap but would be included in the overall players share of income. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the new offer werent being discussed publicly. The NHL maintained the deferred payment amount of $300 million it offered in its previous proposal, an increase from an earlier offer of $211 million. The initial $300 million offer was pulled after negotiations broke off this month. The latest proposal is for 10 years, running through the 2021-22 season, with both sides having the right to opt out after eight years. It is still possible this dispute could eventually be settled in the courts if the sides cant reach a deal on their own. The NHL filed a classaction suit this month in U.S. District Court in New York in an effort to show its lockout is legal. In a separate move, the league filed an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board, contending bad-faith bargaining by the union. Time running out as NHL, union end latest talks Bucs end tough season on a high note Associated Press Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Leonard Johnson breaks up a pass for Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White on Sunday during the second half in Atlanta. The Buccaneers won 22-17. Associated PressATLANTA Compared to the last five miserable weeks, Tampa Bay rookie running back Doug Martin sensed something different this time. Martin got all the proof he needed when the Buccaneers, though out of the playoffs for the fifth straight year, needed just 2 minutes to respond to a fourth-quarter touchdown by Atlanta. I could see it in everybodys eyes out there, Martin said. They werent going to let that happen. Everybody just started to show up. Martin rushed for 142 yards, Josh Freeman and Mike Williams connected on a short touchdown pass and Tampa Bay snapped a five-game losing streak to end the season with a 2217 victory Sunday. Despite falling short of their postseason goals again, the Bucs at least were able to leave the Georgia Dome feeling some self-respect. That was hardly the case last season, when they suffered a 10th straight loss in a Falcons rout and learned the next day that Raheem Morris had been fired as head coach. Atlanta, just like this year, was on its way to the playoffs. We were on a losing streak last year, obviously, and it did not feel good walking out of this locker room, regardless of the situation, safety Top Falcons 22-17 to snap five-game skid See BUCS / Page B3

Colts 28, Texans 16INDIANAPOLIS The Indianapolis Colts made Chuck Pagano a winner in his return to the sideline. Andrew Luck threw for two touchdowns and Deji Karim swung the game with a 101-yard kickoff return in the third quarter, giving the Colts a 28-16 victory over Houston. It was Paganos first game back as coach since starting treatment for leukemia Sept. 26. Indianapolis (11-5) heads into the playoffs as the No. 5 seed and on a roll. The Colts will open the postseason next weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. Bengals 23, Ravens 17 CINCINNATI Carlos Dunlap returned an interception 14 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Ravens (10-6) had already clinched their second straight AFC North title, and they will open the playoffs at home against Indianapolis, which defeated Houston on Sunday. The Ravens let quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice play only two series. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and receiver A.J. Green sat out the second half. Bears 26, Lions 24 DETROIT Jay Cutler threw for 257 yards and a touchdown and helped seal the game with a late scramble. Chicago (10-6) needed a Minnesota loss to Green Bay to reach the postseason. The Lions (4-12) lost their last eight games and turned the ball over four times in the finale. Calvin Johnson fell short in his attempt to become the first player with 2,000 yards receiving in a season. Cutlers 19-yard run on third down helped Chicago run out the clock late in the fourth quarter.Giants 42, Eagles 7 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. There will be no Super Bowl repeat for the Giants. Not even a playoff berth despite Eli Mannings career-high five touchdown passes. The Giants (9-7) playoff hopes ended minutes after routing the Eagles in what may have been coach Andy Reids final game for Philadelphia. Chicagos win over Detroit ended New Yorks long-shot playoff chances. The loss means that it will be seven straight seasons that the Super Bowl champion has failed to win a playoff game the following year. Philadelphia closed the season 4-12. Steelers 24, Browns 10PITTSBURGH Ben Roethlisberger threw three short touchdown passes, and Pittsburgh avoided its first losing season in nearly a decade. Antonio Brown, Leonard Pope and Plaxico Burress scored for the Steelers (8-8). Pittsburghs top-ranked defense forced four turnovers as the Steelers won for just the second time in the last six weeks, a slide that knocked them out of the playoffs for the first time since 2009. Clevelands third-string quarterback, Thaddeus Lewis, passed for 204 yards with a touchdown and an interception in his first NFL start. But the Browns (5-11) dropped their third straight in what is likely coach Pat Shurmurs final game.Bills 28, Jets 9 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. C.J. Spiller scored on a 66-yard catch and run in helping underachieving Buffalo, while Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez had two more turnovers. Safety Bryan Scott also returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown for the Bills (6-10), who snapped a threegame skid. The Bills finished last in the AFC East for a fifth straight season amid speculation about coach Chan Gaileys job security. Sanchez may have started his final game for the Jets (6-10), who closed the season with three consecutive losses amid all sorts of turmoil. Titans 38, Jaguars 20NASHVILLE, Tenn. Tennessee became the first NFL team with two players scoring twice on returns in closing out the season with two wins in its final three games. Darius Reynaud scored on two punt returns and rookie linebacker Zach Brown returned two interceptions for touchdowns. The Titans finished 6-10 and await owner Bud Adams decision on whether to keep coach Mike Munchak, who has two years left on his contract. The Jaguars (2-14) wrapped up their worst season with their 12th loss in 13 games, and now owner Shad Khan has to decide on the futures of general manager Gene Smith and first-year coach Mike Mularkey.Panthers 44, Saints 38 NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees made more NFL history, but so did the Saints porous defense in a loss to Carolina. DeAngelo Williams rushed for 210 yards, including touchdown runs of 54 and 12 yards, for Carolina (7-9), which closed the season with four straight wins. His 65-yard gain set up the first of three 1-yard scoring runs by Mike Tolbert. Brees passed for 396 yards, giving him 5,177 this season. The Saints (7-9) also gave up 530 yards, raising their season total to 7,042 to break the record of 6,793 allowed by the 1981 Baltimore Colts. Chargers 24, Raiders 21SAN DIEGO Micheal Spurlock returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown and San Diego beat the Oakland Raiders 24-21 on a wet, gloomy Sunday in whats expected to be Norv Turners final game as Chargers coach. Turner and general manager A.J. Smith are expected to be fired because the Chargers (7-9) missed the playoffs for the third straight season. The Raiders finished 4-12. Spurlock became the first Chargers player to have a kickoff and punt return for touchdowns in consecutive weeks. He returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown a week earlier in a victory against the New York Jets.49ers 27, Cardinals 13SAN FRANCISCO Michael Crabtree caught touchdown passes of 49 and 7 yards and finished with a career-high 172 yards, leading the San Francisco 49ers to a second straight NFC West title with a 27-13 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Colin Kaepernick overcame a slow start to throw for a career-best 276 yards and two TDs as the Niners (11-4-1) did their part to control the postseason picture but were still waiting on Green Bays result at Minnesota to know whether they would earn the NFCs No. 2 seed. Frank Gore ran for a 2-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter for his franchise-best 51st touchdown rushing. Seahawks 20, Rams 13 SEATTLE Russell Wilson tied Peyton Mannings record for most touchdown passes by a rookie with 26, and his 1-yard TD run with 1:39 left gave Seattle a 20-13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday and an 8-0 home mark for the Seahawks. Seattle (11-5) entered the day with hopes of still winning the NFC West and getting a home playoff game, but those dreams were dashed when San Francisco beat Arizona 27-13 to clinch the division. Seattle finished as the only unbeaten team at home in the NFL. Broncos 38, Chiefs 3DENVER Peyton Manning threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns Sunday to lift Denver to a 38-3 win over Kansas City that sealed the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs for the Broncos. Manning finished the season with 4,659 yards, only 41 short of his career high. He finished with 37 touchdown passes, and none will be more memorable than the last two circus catches by Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas that turned the game into a blowout. Denver (13-3) won its 11th straight and leaped past Houston for the top seed after the Texans lost to Indianapolis 28-16 earlier in the day. The Chiefs gained only 119 yards all day and finished their season 2-14. They will get the top pick in Aprils draft.Vikings 37, Packers 34MINNEAPOLIS Adrian Peterson came within 9 yards of Eric Dickersons rushing record on Sunday, finishing with 199 yards and powering the Minnesota Vikings into the playoffs, 37-34 over Green Bay. That forced a rematch with the Packers next weekend in a wild-card game. Peterson rushed for 36 yards on the last drive, plenty for rookie Blair Walshs 29-yard field goal as time expired to put the Vikings (10-6) in the postseason. The Packers (11-5) fell to the NFCs No. 3 seed. Aaron Rodgers completed 28 of 40 passes for 365 yards and four touchdowns and no turnovers, connecting with Jordy Nelson from 2 yards to tie the game with 2:54 remaining. But Christian Ponder threw for three scores, including one to Peterson. Patriots 28, Dolphins 0 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes and the New England Patriots regained their dominance after a rare slump, earning a playoff bye with a 28-0 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Stevan Ridley ran for two touchdowns as the Patriots used a ball-control offense and a defense that racked up a seasonhigh seven sacks. Now, seeded second in the AFC, they have an extra week to savor the win and prepare for their postseason opener. The Dolphins (7-9) finished with a losing record for the fourth straight season. CARLOS AVILA GONZALEZ /San Francisco Chronicle San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree scores on a 49-yard touchdown reception Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals during the second quarter in San Francisco. Associated PressThanks to Houstons late-season slump, Denver and New England will have byes when the AFC playoffs begin next week. The Texans fell from first to third in the conference Sunday when they lost 28-16 at Indianapolis, which welcomed back coach Chuck Pagano after nearly three months of treatments for leukemia. AFC West champion Denver won its 11th straight game, 38-3 over Kansas City to secure the top seed. New England blanked Miami 28-0 for the second spot. Minnesota edged Green Bay 37-34 to grab the final NFC wild card, sinking the Packers to the third seed. Those teams will meet again next week at Lambeau Field. The other NFC matchup will have Seattle (11-5), which beat St. Louis 20-13, at either Washington or Dallas. Those teams met Sunday night for the NFC East crown. Cincinnati (10-6) will be at Houston and Indianapolis (11-5) at Baltimore (10-6) in the AFC wild-card rounds. Peyton Manning threw for three touchdowns as Denver (13-3) routed the Chiefs. New England (12-4) got the second seed despite having the same record as Houston because it beat the Texans, who lost three of their final four games. Baltimore Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed is looking forward to a reunion with Pagano. He wishes it would come a little later in the postseason. Chucks like a dad to me, Reed said He means a lot to me. I would have much rather seen them in the AFC championship game than the first game. But Reed will see him next week at Baltimore. The Ravens had a chance to move up to the AFCs third seed with a win and a New England loss. But Baltimore lost at Cincinnati as both teams played backups for much of the game. The defending Super Bowl champion Giants are out of contention. When Chicago beat Detroit 2624, the Giants (9-7) were eliminated, even though they routed Philadelphia 42-7. Minnesotas win eliminated Chicago, which the Vikings swept this season. NFL CAPSULES Broncos snag bye, Vikes sneak by

Ronde Barber said. I think everybody doesnt feel great about the season, of course, but well definitely be proud of the way we played this last game. Tampa Bay (7-9) relieved some frustration against an NFC South rival that had ended its four-game winning on Nov. 25. The Bucs had not won since, but on Sunday they answered appropriately each time the Falcons (13-3) threatened to take the lead. Martins 40-yard touchdown late in the third quarter was significant because Atlanta had cut the lead to six after Asante Samuel picked off Freeman and Michael Turner scored on a 17-yard run. Erik Lorig, our fullback, did a good job of staying on his guy, and also Donald Penn, our left tackle, stayed on his guy, Martin said. I just pressed it and bounced it out and then broke two tackles, and it was off to the races. The score was important, too, because it helped restore Freemans confidence. The fourth-year quarterback had thrown four interceptions in each of the last two weeks as New Orleans and St. Louis outscored the Bucs by a combined 69-13. That wasnt the case this time. Any time you have a turnover, you have to respond, Freeman said. Its happened a number of times this year. A lot of times we responded. Sometimes we didnt respond, but especially when youre on the road and the team is as good as the Falcons are or really any team, its crucial to respond. Tampa Bays defense began the game ranked first against the run and last against the pass, but the Bucs were stout in both facets. They played lots of zone coverage and let their linemen and occasional blitz packages keep pressure on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. The Falcons 275 total offensive yards were their second-fewest this season as defensive ends Daniel TeoNesheim and Michael Bennett combined with defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and linebacker Lavonte David with two sacks for minus-25 yards and six quarterback hits. Middle linebacker Mason Foster finished with 12 tackles, 11 of them solo stops, and safety Mark Barron made arguably the Bucs defensive play of the game when he knocked down a fourth-down pass to tight end Tony Gonzalez with 2:02 remaining. The few pressures we did bring really were runstoppers, Barber said. We did a good job of first and second down to what we thought were manageable third downs to get off the field. Its been a problem for us all year, but its how you win football games in this league. Offensively, Freeman surpassed 4,000 yards passing for the first time in his career. Martin, who began the game ranked third in NFL yards from scrimmage, averaged 5.1 yards on 28 attempts, and Williams beat Samuel in the back of the end zone for an 8-yard score that gave Tampa Bay a seven-point lead midway through the second quarter. Dekoda Watson sparked the special teams by blocking a second-quarter punt that led to the second of Connor Barths three field goals. The Bucs played their best against Atlantas starters for four quarters. Despite having the NFCs No. 1 seed and homefield advantage in the playoffs clinched last week, Falcons coach Mike Smith kept his first-string players on the field for the entire game. This team, I think, never really takes it for granted that they get to do this (for a living), first-year Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said. Its a good thing to be able to use all of your cumulative experiences and make up who you are and what you do. Freeman said he would take some satisfaction in the victory even though it came too late to save the season. If you end the year without winning the Super Bowl, your season cant be considered a success, Freeman said. But certainly Im optimistic. Weve got a lot of pieces and a number of guys well get back on the team this offseason. Looking forward, Im really excited. NOTES: Martin was the only Tampa Bay running back with a carry. WR Tiquan Underwood and Freeman each had one carry for 1 yard. ... Bryants first-quarter field goal was his 33rd of the season, setting a Falcons record. Jay Feely had 32 field goals in 2002. ... Tony Gonzalez reached 90 catches to become the first NFL tight end with five seasons of 90 or more receptions. ... Ryans TD pass gave him a team-record 32 for the season. Steve Bartkowski threw 31 TD passes in 1980. ... Jacquizz Rodgers had a game-high eight catches for 50 yards and led Atlanta with 28 yards rushing on five carries.

Associated Press Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III scores a touchdown Sunday in front of Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins during the second half in Landover, Md. Skins win 28-18, punch ticket to postseason Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. RG3 and the Washington Redskins are NFC East champions. Robert Griffin III ran for a touchdown, and fellow rookie Alfred Morris rushed for 200 yards and three scores Sunday night as the Redskins won their first division title in 13 years by beating the Dallas Cowboys 28-18. The Redskins are 10-6 and will host the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday, having won seven straight since their bye week. Washington is the first NFL team to rally from 3-6 to make the postseason since the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1996. The Redskins would have been out of the postseason with a loss. Instead, the Cowboys will miss the playoffs for the third straight year. Dallas finished 8-8, stumbling in a do-or-die end-of-regular-season game for the third time in five years.

Police Officer Norma Eisenman said Williams was taken into custody Friday after the LA County Department of Children and Family Services did a welfare check at his home. Authorities found more than one firearm, one of which had been reported stolen. Eisenman said the DCFS did not specify how many children lived at the home or whether they were removed. The 41-year-old was arrested this month on a felony warrant related to a police chase. In November, he was accused of hitting a man on the head with a bottle during a fight. Katt Williams Spotlight on PEOPLE Final goodbye Birthday Not only are improvements in your financial situation indicated in the year ahead, but it looks like your social life will also be picking up considerably. You wont have anything to complain about. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Someone who is deeply interested in you but isnt demonstrative might once again quietly do something nice for you. Be more alert. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Youre likely to make an extremely good impression on someone you meet. This could be the start of a close bond and a special relationship. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) A certain endeavor will give you a real sense of achievement. Youll like the way you handle things, and youll gain the admiration of others. Aries (March 21-April 19) Perhaps more than you may realize, youve become extremely popular with your peers lately. Something really nice might happen to make you recognize this fact. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Instead of waiting and hoping something good will happen, take control of your destiny, and work hard to make important changes occur. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Dont be reluctant to make a rather difficult decision, especially if you have the necessary vital facts at your disposal. Just do what you believe is best for everybody. Cancer (June 21-July 22) The new year indicates a great deal of improvement concerning your financial interests, but, of course, you must be alert in order to take advantage of these winds of change. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Even if your desires are of a material nature, you must first focus on the human relationships involved. This might entail taking a circuitous route to get what you want. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There are still plenty of opportunities to break through certain avenues that you have either missed or ignored. Check out every possibility that comes your way. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Because your chart indicates that you will be quite popular with members of the opposite gender, this could turn out to be a rather extraordinary day for you. Make the most of it. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you are in need of a special favor, your chances of getting it are pretty good, but you must first ask for help. People cant read minds, so dont expect them to automatically know your needs. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) News youve been anxiously awaiting is on its way, and its likely to be good. If you have to go out, check all your sources of incoming info as often as you can.

The oldest Mardi Gras parade group in Jefferson Parish says its 2013 parade will be double the size of the one in 2011. The Krewe of Grela sat out the last Carnival season after the city of Gretna said its budget could not handle the cost of police and public works services for parades. It said Grela would have to pay $69,000 to $81,000 to parade on Mardi Gras. Other West Bank parade groups changed their routes to stay out of Gretna, which had no parades in 2012. This year, council members provided $60,000 from their discretionary funds for the parade. This is going to be something that the West Bank has not seen since the West Bank was booming, krewe captain Russell Lloyd, who also is a captain in the Gretna Police Department, told The Advocate People are going to want to be a part of this. He said Grela plans more than 700 riders on 22 floats and 10 truck floats, and has commitments from more than a dozen bands. The honorary marshal is Sal Divincenti, a 100year-old former Gretna business owner. Page B4 MONDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE

However, this was the funniest reportable deal of this year and what comes is the unedited truth. First, though, how should South play in seven hearts after West leads the club king? I had anticipated Souths using Blackwood twice, learning that partner had one ace and no king, and settling for six hearts or six no-trump. Bidding the grand slam was a gamble. One actual auction is given, North not holding any prisoners with her leap to five diamonds. Then South, unable to use Blackwood, jumped majestically to seven hearts. In seven hearts, South has one club loser and only 12 winners. But declarer can eliminate his club loser and get a 13th winner with a two-step process. After winning the first trick, he cashes dummys diamond ace and his three top spades, discarding dummys remaining club, ruffs his club seven on the board, and claims the rest of the tricks with his eight high trumps. It was lucky that West didnt lead a trump. What was so funny? At one table, South opened one heart. This was passed out. Then South said to me, I think Ill make it!

His children from a prior marriage were encouraged by their mother to tell falsehoods about our home life. She was planning to leave the state and needed full custody in order to take them, and she ultimately accomplished this. We went to counseling and considered legal action, but realized that even if we won, we no longer agreed on how to parent these kids. The constant discord did some damage to our marriage. My husband put up with a lot of nastiness as long as the kids would see him. I tried to help, but couldnt tolerate their continuing dishonesty and disrespect. The kids eventually developed problems in their personal lives, school and jobs. Slowly, my husband rebuilt a relationship with them, but in doing so, he allowed me to be viewed as the enemy. I stopped being included in family plans. Now his ex-wife and grown children treat my husband as if he is single. The holidays are fine, since the grown children spend them with their mother, and my husband spends his with our little family. However, he attends his childrens graduations, weddings and birthdays without me. I love my husband. He is happy with us and lets us know. Most of all, he thanks us for allowing him to be a normal parent. He has his adult children in his life and sees them once or twice a year, but the situation is becoming increasingly untenable to me. I no longer know what line to draw. Where do we go from here? The Second Wife Dear Second: Actually, the line was drawn some time ago: Your husband attends his grown childrens functions without you. This is not ideal, but it also doesnt have to be cause for constant misery. It would show tremendous grace for you to tell your husband to go and spend time with his adult children, without any residual bitterness on your part. Its only once or twice a year, and we suspect Hubby would be enormously grateful. Dear Annie: My husband, whom I love, has sleep apnea, snores loudly and refuses to wear a CPAP He also wont see his doctor about alternatives. How am I supposed to get any sleep? I need my rest. Tired in Nebraska Dear Tired: We trust your husband is aware of the severe health risks of having untreated sleep apnea. However, you cannot force him to do anything about it, so we recommend that you invest in earplugs or that one of you sleep in another room. Dear Annie: Im responding to Want My Husband Back, whose married life turned to hell when her husband retired. When I married my wife, I was very sports minded and adventurous with several hobbies. My wife was not interested in those things. I managed to teach her cribbage, but that was about it. Now, we are both retired and work part time a couple of days a week. I started to explore some on the edge sports, and I forgot about her. After she called me on the carpet about it, I realized she had a point. All of my activities were directed toward me, and she was on the outside. We decided on a course adjustment, and now Im enjoying the opera while she is learning about extreme sports. She has even expressed some interest in trying one. The best part is, were together so much more often that its like we went back in time 45 years. And our private time together has really improved. We have an agenda every day, even when we work. So my advice for retired couples is to call a timeout, make some adjustments and have fun.

San Antonio won 111-86. Associated PressDALLAS Tony Parker had 21 points and nine assists, Manu Ginobili had several key baskets among his 20 points and the San Antonio Spurs handed the Dallas Mavericks their sixth straight loss, 111-86 on Sunday night. Dirk Nowitzki had eight points on 3-of-9 shooting a week after making a surprise return in a 38-point loss to the Spurs in San Antonio. The Spurs led all the way, with Tim Duncan helping a 20-6 start by hitting several jump shots. He finished with 18 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks. Darren Collison scored 18 points to lead the Mavericks, whose losing streak is their longest since January of their championship season in 2010-11. Dallas was within five in the third quarter when Ginobili hit a 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down, and he made an even longer 3 with the shot clock inside a second to put San Antonio ahead 80-70. He finished the third quarter the same way he did the second with a last-second shot that put the Spurs up by 12. O.J. Mayo, Dallas leading scorer, was held under 10 points for the fourth time in five games. He came in averaging 9 points on 33 percent shooting the previous four games and finished with eight on 4 of 14 shooting. Pistons 96, Bucks 94 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Tayshaun Prince made two free throws with 10.9 seconds left to give Detroit a 96-94 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks after the Pistons blew a 14-point lead. Prince scored 20 points, and Greg Monroe added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Detroit, which had five players in double figures. Charlie Villanueva and Brandon Knight added 11 points apiece, and Jason Maxiell scored 10 for the Pistons. Monta Ellis had 30 points and nine assists, and Erson Ilyasova scored 24 points for the Bucks. Ellis hit a fallaway baseline jumper with 1:06 left, after almost losing the ball out of bounds, to give the Bucks their first lead, 94-92. But Princes hook shot tied the score with 50.5 seconds remaining. Ellis missed a jumper with 31.9 seconds to go and Maxiell got the rebound. Following a timeout, Luc Mbah a Moute fouled Prince, who stepped to the line and made both free throws. Ilyasovas 3-pointer with 1:43 left tied it at 92 to complete the comeback from a 14-point deficit. Detroit led 78-71 going into the fourth quarter after leading 72-58 on Monroe's jumper with 4:14 left in the third. The Pistons jumped out to an early 13-0 lead, holding the Bucks scoreless until 8:07 remained in the first quarter when Ellis made a driving layup. Milwaukee battled back to 19-17 on Ellis two free throws with 4:03 left in the first and 21-19 with 3:02 remaining on a driving layup by Ellis. Spurs take early lead, send Mavs to sixth straight loss

Fiscal cliffhanger See FISCAL/ Page A2 Springs eternal hope MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Plans for developing the Three Sisters Springs property moved forward in 2012 despite some bumps from neighbors who didnt appreciate the idea of manatee watchers peering into their yards. The city council backed the management plan, including adding a boardwalk that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service constructed during the year to give manatee watchers a place to stand without trampling on the banks. The plan was tweaked to drop a planned kayak launch to address concerns of congestion in the area. Instead, officials plan a nature discovery area. And officials with the city and wildlife service must still decide whether to build the visitor center on site or at a nearby shopping center. Officials say moving the visitor center offsite solves a parking dilemma at the property, but creates a funding obstacle for the welcome center. A coalition of agencies combined to buy the 54-acre property, home to the springs that attract dozens of manatees each winter, for $10.5 million in 2010. The city of Crystal River owns 70 percent and Southwest Florida Water Management District owns 30 percent. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service manages the property on the citys behalf. Other than regular open houses the next one is Jan. 19 to 20, weekend of the Manatee Festival the property is closed to the public. Eventually, it will be open and officials believe it will become a huge tourist attraction. City Manager Andy Houston and Michael Lusk, manager of the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, said little will be done on site until after the water management district completes the stormwater filtering system it is building on the property to capture water from nearby shopping center parking lots before it rolls Chronicle fileVisitors at an open house at the Three Sisters Springs property were kept away from viewing manatees in an area where they could see residents across the canal.

The sassy cartoon lamb had an awful encounter with the family dog, which resulted in his deformity missing eyes. Some might say Lamby lost the battle. But did he? Wearing his blue-cuffed pants, Lambys owner discovered a plastic water bottle cap would conceal his missing eyes. Through the blue bottle cap, magic and wondrous powers evolved in Lambys life, creating a heartwarming story of hope, love and courage for children of all ages. Co-founders Byron and Tina Patterson established Love & Fleece LLC in Tarpon Springs in hopes of fueling positive inspirations for children in need. Our toys subliminally show kids that boldly accepting your imperfections can be liberating, that having a physical flaw can be like wearing a badge of courage, Patterson said. Lambys missing his eyes and he wears a goofy prosthetic, but his spirits whole and his confidence is strong. In fact, having a physical impairment is the very thing that makes his ego, as well as his heart, larger than life. Through original songs, drawings, poems, short stories and parodies, Patterson creates a message: spread the happy, not the Aquifer recharge concepts for North Florida controversial MARKSCOHIER Chiefland CitizenThe North Florida Aquifer suffered during 2012. Groundwater levels throughout the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) saw record lows earlier in the year, due to drought and groundwater withdrawal. Springs quit flowing. Residential wells dried up. Coastal communities, such as Cedar Key, saw their municipal wells flooded with saltwater as the bubble of fresh groundwater that keeps it at bay became smaller and smaller. Levels came back up with the onset of two tropical storms, though, as some predicted, levels are beginning to fall again, dropping by an average of 1 foot for the Upper Floridan Aquifer, according to a recent report from SRWMD. Thats why the SRWMD, partnering with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, hired Atkins North America Inc. in July to undertake a study to determine the potential success of recharging the aquifer with reclaimed water and surface water. The study, still in its early phases, is a portion of a joint effort between the three agencies known as the North Florida Aquifer Replenishment Initiative which, according to the study thus far, would benefit lakes, springs, rivers and wetlands, and contribute to developing a sustainable water supply for the region. The agencies would like to recharge the aquifer and use it as a large storage tank. Four conceptual approaches were outlined in the latest Atkins report on the See AQUIFER/ Page A7 See MAGICAL/ Page A2 The study ... would benefit lakes, springs, rivers and wetlands, and contribute to developing a sustainable water supply for the region.

For every Lamby sold, the Pattersons donate an additional plush toy to a sick or needy child. Forty-two Lamby Lambpants, the first character in their planned line of plush toys, were given to Jessies Place a Citrus County child advocacy center in Beverly Hills. We wanted the kids to understand that just like this doll and his magical story that they dont have to be perfect just like he isnt perfect, said Joanne Peters, CEO and founder of Courtroom Dogs for Kids Inc. But he is special and loved like they are. Its really important for them to know to not believe everything they have been told since they were born, Peters said. Everything is going to be OK and you are not a loser, or this or that. Peters said Courtroom Dogs for Kids is an organization that has registered and trained therapy dogs that serve as calming companions to children who have been traumatized and who must testify to these circumstances. These dog companions visit Jessies Place and have noticed a difference in the children since they have received Lamby. Carol, a therapist at Jessies Place, tells me that they just love Lamby, said Lorraine Clark, vice president of Courtroom Dogs for Kids Inc. They just hold him and know that he is theirs and their protector. Its a reminder to them that there are people out there that love them and will take care of them and keep them safe. Thats exactly what Lamby was created for. No matter what your deficit is there is always someone there that loves you. The lamb is like a shield and friend to them when they are not feeling good. They have the lamb to bring with them wherever they are. Peters feels that Lamby is a constant reminder and companion. I dont care how old they are, I think they think that the unknown is scary, Peters said. When they have been taken out their home, no matter how bad it is its the known. As bad as it might be, its a lot better than the unknown. They are trying to find their way through this unknown and they dont know which way to go or what to do. They have Guardian ad Litems, therapists, Courtroom Dogs and all that, but at the end of the day they are by themselves. Now they are not they have Lamby. We all need something to hang onto at points in our lives. Saturday evening and reached out to Vice President Joe Biden, a longtime friend, in hopes of breaking the impasse. Biden assumed the lead role for Democrats, and a McConnell spokesman said the Kentucky Republican and the vice president were expected to negotiate by telephone into the night. Rank-and-file lawmakers left the Capitol on Sunday night with hopes their leaders would give them something to vote on when they returned Monday morning. One sign of progress came as Republicans withdrew a long-discussed proposal to slow future cost-of-living increases for Social Security recipients as part of a compromise to avoid the cliff. Democrats said earlier Sunday that proposal had put a damper on the talks, and Republican senators emerging from a closed-door GOP meeting said it is no longer part of the equation. I was really gratified to hear that Republicans have taken their demand for Social Security benefit cuts off the table. The truth is they should never have been on the table to begin with, Reid said late Sunday afternoon. There is still significant distance between the two sides, but negotiations continue. At stake are sweeping tax hikes and across-the-board spending cuts set to take effect at the turn of the year. Taken together, theyve been dubbed the fiscal cliff, and economists warn the one-two punch which leaders in both parties have said they want to avoid could send the still-fragile economy back into recession. Tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 expire at midnight Monday, and $109 billion in acrossthe-board cuts in federal spending this year would also begin this week. Workers could see more taxes withheld from their paychecks and federal agencies are likely to soon receive warning of possible furloughs if lawmakers fail to reach a deal to avert the cliff. The new Congress will be sworn in Thursday and would inherit the problem if the current crop of lameduck lawmakers cant find an answer before then. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said the two sides remained at odds over the income threshold for higher tax rates and tax levels on large estates. Republicans said that Democratic demands for new money to prevent a cut in Medicare payments to doctors and renew jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed should be financed with cuts elsewhere in the budget. Republicans also balked at a Democratic proposal to use new tax revenues to shut off the acrossthe-board spending cuts, known as a sequester in Washington-speak. President Barack Obama, in a televised interview, blamed Republicans for putting the nations shaky economy at risk. We have been talking to the Republicans ever since the election was over, Obama said in the interview that was taped Saturday and aired Sunday on NBCs Meet the Press. They have had trouble saying yes to a number of repeated offers. The mood is discouraged, said Sen. Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut inde pendent who caucuses with Democrats. The parties are much further apart than I hoped theyd be by now. The pessimistic turn came as the House and Senate returned to the Capitol for a rare Sunday session.

However, county planning staff will recommend that the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC) deny the request. Johannes and Christina Mar tens son, owners of four lots at the end of North Seneca Point, off West Fort Island Trail, have made an application to request the removal of a portion of the roadway that lies between these lots. The roadway is paved and serves as an L-shaped turnaround area within the Montezuma Waters Mobile Home Estates subdivision. It is the only turnaround on North Seneca Point. A similar application in 2007 was denied by the PDC. Government agencies have reviewed the new request and have expressed willingness to work with the applicant, with the exception of the Land Development Division/Engineering Section. It responded that vacating the roadway would not allow for the safe turnaround of long wheel-base vehicles, such as garbage trucks and buses. The request also was not justifiable under state standards. The Land Development Division staff also noted that approval of this application would result in land-locking several of the petitioners lots. The applicant would need to submit an application to replat the lots and receive staff approval before placement of this application on the agenda of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Therefore, staff recommended denial as the request would be inconsistent with the countys Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code. The PDC reviews development applications and makes recommendations to the BOCC on changes to the Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code. The PDC has final action on variance and conditional use applications. The PDC also provides direction to staff regarding land use amendments, as well as test amendments on development issues. If any person decides to appeal any decision made by the board with respect to any matter considered at this meeting or hearing, he or she will need a record of the proceedings and, for such purpose, he or she may need to insure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, including testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.

SarasotaNew Years Eve pineapple drop returnsA glowing pineapple is coming back to ring in the new year in southwest Florida. Sarasotas traditional pineapple drop was scrubbed last year as organizers and sponsors fought over funding, security and other issues. This year, local businesses formed a group to work with the events longtime organizer. Ernie Ritz has organized the event since 2000. He told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune the New Years Eve pineapple drop festivities will begin this afternoon and will include carnival rides and live music. The pineapple will drop over downtown Sarasotas Main Street at midnight tonight. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3MONDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS In August 2007, Jared Mann, then 19 years old, woke up from a nine-day coma with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). He had been driving back from registering for classes at Florida State University when he fell asleep at the wheel and crossed onto the grass median. He awoke and turned back onto U.S. 19, just south of Tallahassee, lost control of his car and hit a pole. He was admitted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and later transferred to Orlando Regional Medical Center. Besides the brain injury, Jared also broke his pelvis in two places and his left arm was badly bruised. That he woke up at all was a surprise to his doctors and a welcome relief after an emotionally agonizing nine days for his parents, Jerry and June Mann. Now, five and a half years later, 24-year-old Jared is a graduate student at FSU, nearing completion of a masters program in social work, with a potential focus on working with U.S. military personnel returning from the battlefield with brain injuries. He said his neurologist is urging him to use his firsthand experience with TBI and choose an internship with the VA. I have to pick out an internship in February at the university, Jared said from his family home in Inverness during his holiday break from classes. He said, based on his skill set and personal experience, an internship could lead to a career with the VA in that area. His doctor has told him theres nothing more authentic than someone whos been where you are, Mrs. Mann said. He had to learn how to walk, talk and eat and do everything all over again. For the most part, Jared has fully recovered from his injuries. His major residual disability is his eyesight. Because his occipital lobe was damaged, he has double-vision problems with depth perception. Ive had one corrective eye surgery, but my eyesight will never be the same, he said. Ive adjusted and adapted. To drive, he wears prism glasses, which help put the double images together. I cant play any contact sports anymore or sports where you have to track a ball, like baseball or basketball, he said. Jared competed as a weightlifter and was on the baseball team at Citrus High School, so that has been an adjustment for him, as well. I still lift weights in the gym, he said, adding that when he starts to think about his challenges, he reminds himself others have much worse things to deal with. Actually, there are some positives to my experience, he said. Because of nerve damage to his left side, part of the therapy for the lefthander was to learn to use his right hand. Im now ambidextrous, he said. In many ways, my experience makes me more marketable. His parents said this whole experience has affected them all profoundly. As a parent, in times of crisis youre surprised at what you can do, Jerry Mann said. After he woke up from the coma, when Jared told me he was going back to Florida State, I said to myself, Thats never going to happen, but I dont have the gall to tell him. But it did happen. He was determined and went to the weight room three times a week and rehab three times a week. Im proud of him, Mann said. The brain surgeon wrote him off, but hes doing things they said hed never do.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927. NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleIn August 2007, then-19-year-old Jared Mann woke up from a nine-day coma with a traumatic brain injury after a car accident. Five and a half years later, the Florida State University grad student is doing things doctors never expected him to do. Hes pictured with his parents, Jerry and June Mann. College student with traumatic brain injury makes inspiring recovery From coma to comeback Soldier surprises mom with Christmas visit Lecanto man faces fraud charge CHRISVANORMER Staff writerA Lecanto man was alleged to have used his employers credit card to offer strangers a gasoline price discount, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Deputies arrested Darryl Wayne Jarvis, 50, of West Woodland Ridge Drive, Lecanto, at 11:49 a.m. Friday on a felony charge of scheme to defraud for less than $20,000. According to a deputys report, Jarvis employer, a Homosassabased concrete contractor, contacted the CCSO after learning that someone wearing company-issued clothing had been seen Nov. 30 at a gas station at the intersection of County Road 491 and State Road 44 soliciting motorists to use the credit card to fill their tanks in exchange for half the value in cash for payment. The employer checked his fleet fuel account for the credit card and found about 29 unauthorized fuel purchases had been transacted between Nov. 27 and Nov. 30. The card had been assigned to a diesel-engine vehicle, but all the unauthorized purchases were for gasoline. According to the employers information to deputies, the credit card had been assigned to Jarvis, who had been employed by the company for eight months and had sole use of the vehicle to which the credit card was assigned. The employer also stated Jarvis had last reported for work on Nov. 21, at which time Jarvis said he had to leave for a family members funeral services out of state. However, when the employer reviewed company video surveillance tapes, he observed Jarvis on Nov. 24 entering the businesss locked compound and removing a concrete saw. Jarvis had been charged with theft of the saw, but denied using the credit card, according to the report. Deputies stated they contacted a witness to the unauthorized credit card use on Dec. 12. The witness positively identified Jarvis from a photo array as the person who attempted to use the credit card for a sale of gasoline on Nov. 30. According to the report, a deputy contacted Jarvis on Dec. 28 at the Citrus County Detention Facility, where he was incarcerated on other charges. A deputy said Jarvis was read the Miranda warning and Jarvis admitted taking the saw, but denied using the credit card even after being advised he had been identified using the card by a witness. His bond was set at $2,000.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline. com or 352-564-2916. MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Lisa Mangelsen served in the military, so she knows all about spending time away from families during the holidays. Her two adult children, Lacey and Derek, are both in the Army, stationed at separate bases in Texas. She didnt plan to see either one this Christmas. So it seemed a little odd on Christmas Eve when her youngest daughter, Desir, casually wondered how her mom would react if Derek just, you know, showed up. I said Id be happy, Mangelsen said she told her daughter, then asked her: Is there something youre not telling me? And then there he was, surprising his mom in the kitchen as she opened a can of fruit. I turned around and he was standing behind me, Mangelsen said. My mouth just dropped. I had that deerin-the-headlights look. I just started bawling. He had tears in his eyes too. Derek, 19, is a private first class at Fort Bliss, Texas. He left in June and the last time Mangelsen saw him was September, when he was home for 10 days. His sister is a combat medic at Fort Hood, Texas, and she served three months in Afghanistan. Derek, who left Friday for Tampa and then Saturday back to Texas, said his unit is headed to Louisiana for a month to help train soldiers being deployed to Afghanistan. He said his future may include ranger school and he is not scheduled for deployment until 2014. His father, Dennis Loving of Williamsburg, Va., and mother are both Navy veterans. Derek said he knew that wasnt his calling. I dont like being out on the water, he said. I like being on the ground. Darryl Jarvisfaces felony charges.

into Kings Bay. That project is expected to occur in 2013. Meanwhile, the city is expected to move ahead in January with a $2.4 million upgrade of Cutler Spur Boulevard. Work should begin in March and be completed before the years end, Houston said. Government officials agreed the entrance to the Three Sisters property will be off Cutler Spur, so the entrance will not be built until after the road project is completed. Lusk said officials do not want access at the current entrance off Kings Bay Drive because its in a residential neighborhood. The biggest issue concerning the Three Sisters project in 2012 came from residents who live across from the property along canals who wanted to close off manatee-viewing access because of the potential for tourists gawking at them in their yards. Lusk said in an interview he was surprised with the opposition, considering that before the property was purchased a developer had approved plans for homes and townhouses. With what were proposing, 80 to 85 percent of it will be left untouched, he said. Its going to become more wild, not less. In 15 years when people see how well Three Sisters turned out, theyll be glad they moved next to it. The management plan, approved by the city council in June, includes two manatee viewing areas construction to somewhat limit the field of vision to allow for an element of privacy for residents across the canal.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

Fourth Amendment Protections: Senators refused, 12-79, to require search warrants for government inspections of customer records held by firms such as Internet service providers, credit cards and banks. The Supreme Court has held that warrantless "third party" searches do not violate the Fourth Amendment's privacy protections. A yes vote backed the amendment to HR 5949 (above). Nelson, No; Rubio, No. Spying on Americans: Senators refused, 43-52, to require minimal public disclosure of the extent to which U.S. citizens' communications are inadvertently collected in spying authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (HR 5949, above). The law requires such intercepts to be expunged or disregarded, but there is no public oversight to see if that occurs. A yes vote backed the requirement. Nelson, No; Rubio, No. FISA Court Rulings: Senators refused, 37-54, to require the secretive federal courts that oversee the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to eventually release their opinions fully or in summaries with redactions to protect national security.

Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. GOP disaster aid: Senators defeated, 41-54, a Republican bid to reduce HR 1 (above) from $60.4 billion to $23.8 billion and bar aid that is not intended for communities and individuals directly harmed by Hurricane Sandy. The aid would be released over the next three months with the possibility of increments starting in April. A yes vote was to send the GOP plan to the House. Nelson, No; Rubio, Yes.

OPINION Page A6MONDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2012 Stop the violenceViolence is engrained in the American psyche; Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin or better known as H. Rap Brown, said it correctly when he stated Violence is as American as cherry pie. Sandy Hook is not a gun issue as much as it is a violence issue. There will be a lot of crying, praying and investigating all necessary for our national mental health, but all of it is after the fact. A gunman blasted his way into an elementary school, bypassing the door buzzer and entrance security. It doesnt matter how many laws you have against guns, guys like this who are intent on doing violence will always be able to get what they want one way or another. I fear we are going to waste a lot of time arguing about new gun laws. They never seem to get anywhere in this country. What we must do and do now is keep the crazies and the weapons out of the schools by any means possible. Right now, our school board should rethink school entry policy and hire additional security that is armed. I dont mean little, old retired police officers who havent fired a gun in years, or teachers who are serving collateral duties, or even the School Resource Officers who are not looking for the serious bad guys they would probably be the first ones shot by any committed killer. I mean men and women similar to the security force surrounding the nuclear power plant in Crystal River. Even if it means we have to reconstruct the schools with an eye toward security, bulletproof glass, security designed entrance ways, state-of-the-art surveillance, etc. If it means creating a new taxing district for our school board, and Im sure it would, then so be it. President Obama said it, This must stop. I didnt support our president in his recent run for the White House nor in his first run, but I do now. God bless him, God bless us and God bless the Sandy Hook 26.Richard Dick Callahan Crystal River Welcome to 2013! How are you doing with your resolutions? Did you fall into the trap of making a commitment to yourself to finally, once and for all, ditch your vices and be the person you always wanted to be? The University of Scrantons Journal of Clinical Psychology estimates approximately 45 percent of Americans will make a New Years Resolution in 2013. Here is a list of the top 10: lose weight; get organized; spend less, save more; enjoy life to the fullest; staying fit and healthy; learn something exciting; quit smoking; help others in their dreams; fall in love; and spend more time with family. Isnt it interesting most of these are centered on ourselves? We live in a very me-centric world, so this is not really surprising. Only 1.5 of these 10 goals focuses on other people. I say 1.5 because the one about family does really include me, right? What would happen if the 45 percent of us who commit to some sort of resolution instead committed to the resolve to improve our community? In Citrus County, that would mean 63,450 people walking around town with a better outlook, a smile rather than a frown, listening instead of talking. Imagine if we committed to a revolution versus a resolution! From where I sit, the sight of the result is so beautiful I can hardly stand it! I visited Citrus United Basket just a few days before Christmas. They opened their doors to invite needy folks from the community in to shop for their children and pick up some food for their holiday celebrations. The line was nearly wrapped around the building. Sitting there watching the line grow, I was wondering how we could shorten it. Obviously, the folks in the line are unemployed or under-employed. The money coming in cant keep up with the money going out. Yet, we know there are more than 600 open jobs in our county. How can we move the folks in that line into those jobs? Workforce Connection recently released its Jobs Skills Gap Study findings, and overwhelmingly, our workforce is not qualified to fill the empty jobs. So employers continue to fill our Citrus County jobs with folks from out of the county. If that doesnt just stop you in your tracks, I dont know what will. Our community steps up like no other. But we continue to step up with temporary fixes. We have to make a resolution to make a revolution. We have a fantastic technical school as well as a four-year college right here in our county. The unemployed or under-employed in our county will need further education to get the qualifications and credentials to obtain the open jobs. Not only will that fill open jobs in our community, but if our collective workforce is more accomplished, we will more easily attract new employers to our county. All of this sounds logical, but it wont happen overnight. Our United Way is committed to the three building blocks of successful lives: education, income and health. As has already been illustrated, education and income truly work in tandem. Health is just as easily tethered to these two, as folks with more income can afford healthier lifestyles. Daily, we work on identifying ways to reach across the sectors of our community to bring folks in need to the place where they can achieve family-sustaining income. On Jan. 7, a group of handpicked individuals will begin the work to complete their GED. United Way has successfully forged a relationship with WTI and Workforce Connection to facilitate the educational piece of this goal. Furthermore, we are bringing in resources to break down the barriers that exist in the lives of this group of people. Whether its transportation, child care or some other roadblock, we are ready to meet those challenges so this group can take the steps necessary to achieve. I recently read When Helping Hurts, by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert. It really underlines Band-aids are not enough. We must dig deeper to see impactful change. Financial resources are not the only thing a needy family is lacking. We cant just pay the rent and walk away. Food for a week isnt enough either. Handing large sums of money to someone who cant balance a checkbook hurts the situation more than it helps. We must radically change the way we look at charitable efforts. Otherwise, we must resolve now to be prepared to support an everincreasing dependent society. Rather than offering financial resources, could we give more? Maybe a person in need really needs advice, guidance or someone to just listen. But lets be honest, writing a check is easier than exposing ourselves to the vulnerable place of creating a relationship with someone who is living outside of our circle. Thats why I am challenging you to consider a revolution in 2013 as your resolution. Consider ways you can make our community better. Here are my top 10: Volunteer some time to a GED student at WTI. Write a letter of encouragement to a struggling single parent. Give your expertise or advice to someone who needs it. Smile. Withhold your negative comments from a conversation. Give thanks. Let your words offer praise, not cause hurt. Listen, dont talk. Suppress your skepticism and make a contribution. Take time to see life through someone elses situation. Your work can strengthen my work and we can see a brighter tomorrow. If we all join hands, we can improve our community. Imagine the moms and dads who had to stand in line for toys in 2012, obtaining a better job in 2013 and buying toys for their kids and possibly dropping toys in the Toys for Tots bin. Can you see it? I can. Join me in the revolution. Thats my resolution.Amy Meek is CEO of United Way of Citrus County. Call 353-795-5483 or visit www. citrusunitedway.org. Resolve to perform what your ought.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ..........................................publisherMike Arnold ..................................................editorCharlie Brennan ................................editor at largeCurt Ebitz ........................................citizen memberMac Harris ......................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ................................guest memberBrad Bautista ..........................................copy chief CAUSE AND EFFECT Important lesson learned The recent rescue of a woman who had spent two cold, wet nights outside is the story of a Good Samaritan and a caution for those who live alone in our community. Earlier this month, a nursing assistant driving to work saw a hand waving from a field in Homosassa Springs. She turned her car and drove through a field to come to the aid of an elderly woman who had fallen and could not get back home. The woman had been in the field in cold, rainy weather for two days. Her rescuer deserves credit for making the effort to see what the waving hand meant, and for getting aid to the woman on the ground. She went out of her way to help another person in need. This tale of human kindness is also a cautionary tale for many residents of our community who live without family nearby. When a person lives with a spouse or other family members, an unexpected absence, like not returning from a walk or coming home after work, is quickly noticed. However, for someone living alone, the situation is different. For these people, the risk of something happening and no one knowing for some time is very real. For those who live alone, this event underscores the importance of establishing some method through which a responsible person can be notified if the individual is missing. This can be as simple as friends or neighbors routinely checking with the person, or as complex as belonging to a group whose goal is to make routine contact with its members. Regardless of the method, the goal is to ensure if a person suffers some problem in his or her home or outside, he or she does not end up in the cold rain or worse because no one knew he or she were missing. In a community where many people live alone, this is a matter of real personal safety. THE ISSUE:Elderly woman rescued after two days in a field.OUR OPINION:A good deed and a cautionary tale.

The first involves using wastewater from the SJRWMD area using direct and indirect methods of recharge for portions of the aquifer in that district. Direct recharge involves injecting the water deep into wells. Indirect uses ponds, wetlands, sinkholes, mine pits and other such features to recharge the upper levels of the aquifer. The second plan involves capturing and storing water from the Upper Suwannee River for treatment and direct recharge into the aquifer. The third considers capturing floodwater from floodplains on the Upper Suwannee for storage and indirect recharge, and the last calls for capture and storage of surface water in the SJRWMD area into the aquifer. But some of these techniques have proven controversial. Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, president of Our Santa Fe River, has followed issues associated with aquifer recharge for years. I have been telling them that I have a concern about the chemicals that they cannot remove, MalwitzJipson said in a recent phone interview with regard to treated wastewater sent into the aquifer. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and FDEP have standards about the removal of solids and biodegradable organic compounds, but most treatment processes are not designed to remove things such as pharmaceuticals, detergents or chemicals from plastics, all of which, according to Malwitz-Jipson, act as endocrine disruptors. The endocrine system in animals, including humans, acts as the bodys means for communication in regulating glands, hormones and cellular receptors. A 2007 study by the U.S. Geological Survey determined wastewater caused endocrine disruption in certain fish, causing the males to begin producing a female egg-yolk protein. Wastewater also often contains known carcinogens and drug-resistant bacteria and viruses. But in areas where wastewater is not being considered, such as on the Upper Suwannee River, MalwitzJipson said there are also concerns with dissolved oxygen put into the aquifer from direct recharge methods that have been shown to release naturally occurring radioactive material in the rock and poisonous metals such as arsenic. An early study by USGS showed an appreciable amount of uranium (25 parts per million) occurs in the limestone in the Floridan Aquifer and that more than 30 percent of the uranium can be leached from the rock under oxidizing conditions in the laboratory. The report went on to state the data was especially significant to aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) in Florida because ASR areas contain more dissolved oxygen than what would naturally occur within the aquifer. Arsenic is also released, the study showed, though levels of both arsenic and uranium appear to decline as dissolved oxygen-rich water is injected and then removed over several cycles. Still, this is no comfort to some. It makes sense that once the exposed pyritic deposits have reacted with the oxygen and mixing occurs that levels would drop. The trick is that it is unpredictable. In our part of the world it might poison a season of a crop or a herd of cattle before any realized there was a problem, said Annette Long, of Save Our Suwannee. An alternative to ASR is shallow injection through the use of wetlands, she said. We wrecked them all by draining them, but if we take treated effluent and allow it to recharge from the surface, like its supposed to, it solves a lot of problems, Long said. Cutting down on the number of millions-of-gallonsper-day consumptive use permits would be a cheaper option, she said, instead, the water management districts are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on studies to determine if artificial groundwater recharge using wastewater, floodwater, deep aquifer water from mine wells and plain old river water will solve the problem. They are doing this because pumping ground water is the way we have always done it in Florida, Long said. What they arent doing is mandatory conservation. Another thing that doesnt seem to be on the table is complete re-use of wastewater. Clean it up to drinking water standards and use it again, instead of pumping new groundwater. Capturing floodwaters from floodplains on the Suwannee River isnt an answer, either, she said. Floodwaters are important, too. The water flowing down the Suwannee River, even during floods, is not extra water, she said. Its important for fisheries, clams, oyster beds and sea life where the river meets the Gulf. Who decides that the existing sport and commercial fishing, shellfish and tourism industry is less important than issuing new water permits for housing developments, new industrial developments and new farmland? Long said. Its got to stop, she said. All you have to do is look at the lakes, look at the springs and rivers to see there is a terrible problem. The science is clear and settled record low flows and rising salinity. For the water management district to be spending millions of taxpayer dollars to fix our water crisis with Band aid projects while continuing to hand out new water use permits is illegal and wrong. We need our leaders to follow the rules and to open their eyes and see the facts.

Magazine goofs; publishes Bush obitBERLIN Germanys respected news weekly Der Spiegel mistakenly published an obituary Sunday for former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, hours after a family spokesman said the 88-year-old was recovering from an illness. Bush was hospitalized Nov. 23 in Houston for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough and moved to intensive care on Dec. 23 after he developed a fever. On Saturday, spokesman Jim McGrath said Bush was moved out of intensive care into a regular hospital room again after his condition improved.

The Nuevo Leon state official said the gunmen arrived near midnight on Saturday at the party for a girls 15th birthday, a traditional Latin American celebration much like a Sweet 16. The official spoke to The Associated Press on Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release information. The aggressors were looking for a man and once they found Julio Cesar Cruz inside the dance hall they killed him, the official said. Family members who tried to protect him before he died were also wounded.French troops go to Central Africa BANGUI, Central African Republic As rebels advance in Central African Republic, France has deployed an additional 180 troops to protect its interests.

The troops are to protect French residents in the capital, which many fear will be attacked by the rebels. In another security measure, President Francois Bozize imposed a curfew from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m. Bozize earlier appealed to France for help against the rebels, but Paris said it would only protect French interests. World BRIEFS From wire reports GOP govs. walk balance beam on health care law Associated PressATLANTA Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who made a fortune as a health care executive, long opposed President Barack Obamas remake of the health insurance market. After the Democratic president won reelection, the Republican governor softened his tone. He said he wanted to have a conversation with the administration about implementing the 2010 law. With a federal deadline approaching, he also said while Florida wont set up the exchange for individuals to buy private insurance policies, the feds can do it. In New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie held his cards before saying he wont set up his own exchange, but hes avoided absolute language and said he could change his mind. Hes also leaving his options open to accept federal money to expand Medicaid insurance for people who arent covered. The caveat, Christie said, is whether Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius can answer my questions about its operations and expense. Both Republican governors face reelection in states Obama won twice, Christie in 2013 and Scott in 2014. And both will encounter wellfinanced Democrats. Their apparent struggles on the issue, along with other postures by their GOP colleagues elsewhere, suggest political uncertainty for Republicans as the Affordable Care Act starts to go into effect two years after clearing Congress without a single Republican vote. The risks also are acute for governors in Democratic-leaning or swing-voting states or who know their records will be parsed should they seek the presidency in 2016 or beyond. Its a tough call for many Republican governors who want to do the best thing for their state but dont want to be seen as advancing an overhaul that many Republicans continue to detest, said Whit Ayers, a consultant in Virginia whose clients include Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee, a Republican who didnt announce his rejection of a state exchange until days before Sebeliuss Dec. 14 deadline. Indeed, cracks keep growing in the near-unanimous Republican rejection of Obamas health care law that characterized the GOPs political messaging for the last two years. Five GOP-led states Idaho, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah are pressing ahead with state insurance exchanges. Ongoing monitoring by The Associated Press showed another five Republican-led states are pursuing or seriously a partnership with Washington to help run the new markets. Democrats, meanwhile, hope to use the law and Republican inflexibility to their advantage, betting that more Americans will embrace the law once it expands coverage. The calculus for voters, Democrats assume, will become more about the policy and less about a polarizing president.

Honoring the fallen Envoy warns of failed state in Syria Predicts many deaths in coming year Associated PressBEIRUT The international envoy seeking to end Syrias civil war warned Sunday the failure of the government and the rebels to pursue a political solution could lead to the full collapse of the Syrian state and threaten the worlds security. Lakhdar Brahimi, who represents the United Nations and the Arab League, said as many as 100,000 people could be killed in the next year as Syria moves toward Somalization and rule by warlords. Brahimi has reported little progress in his mission to push forward a peace plan for Syria first presented in June at an international conference in Geneva. The proposal calls for an open-ended cease-fire and the formation of a transitional government to run the country until new elections can be held and a new constitution drafted. But so far, neither the regime of President Bashar Assad nor the scores of rebels groups fighting his forces across the country have shown any interest in negotiations. The rebels political leadership has called Assads departure a prerequisite for any political solution, and it is unlikely that the oppositions National Coalition could even stop rebels on the ground from continuing to fight. Likewise, it is doubtful that top members of Assads regime will voluntarily give up power. The Syrian government has remained officially mum on Brahimis plan, which he has pushed in the past week in meetings with Assad in Damascus, with top Russian officials in Moscow and on Sunday with the head of the Arab League in Cairo. Speaking alongside Nabil Elaraby on Sunday, he estimated that 100,000 people could be killed if the 21month conflict continues for another year. Since meeting Assad early last week, Brahimi has given no indication how his plan was received. When asked Sunday if there is any willingness among the opposition to enter a political process, Brahimi said, No, there isnt. This is the problem. Syrias crisis began in March 2011 with political protests against Assad. The conflict has since evolved into a civil war. Anti-regime activists said more than 45,000 people have been killed. Associated PressWASHINGTON Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was admitted to a New York hospital Sunday after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month. Clintons doctors discovered the clot Sunday while performing a follow-up exam, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said. He would not elaborate on the location of the clot but said Clinton is being treated with anticoagulants and would remain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor the medication. Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion, Reines said in a statement. They will determine if any further action is required. Clinton, 65, fell and suffered a concussion while at home alone in mid-December as she recovered from a stomach virus that left her severely dehydrated. The concussion was diagnosed Dec. 13 and Clinton was forced to cancel a trip to North Africa and the Middle East that had been planned for the next week. Clinton was also forced to cancel Dec. 20 testimony before Congress about a scathing report into the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The report found that serious failures of leadership and management in two State Department bureaus were to blame for insufficient security at the facility. Clinton took responsibility for the incident before the report was released, but she was not blamed. Some conservative commentators suggested Clinton was faking the seriousness of her illness and concussion to avoid testifying, although State Department officials vehemently denied that was the case. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hospitalized Hillary Clintonadmitted to N.Y. hospital.

That was also the 41st scoring pass for the season for Brees, the only quarterback to pass for 40 TDs in consecutive seasons. Brees is one of four quarterbacks in NFL history to pass for 5,000 yards in a season. Dan Marino was the first in 1984. Brees was the second in 2008. In 2011, Brees, New Englands Tom Brady and Detroits Matt Stafford all hit that mark.

Associated PressNEW YORK After two days of questions and answers, the NHL and the players association now need to figure out if they are ready to bargain again in what could be a last chance to save the hockey season. The sides had a series of informational discussions by conference call and in face-to-face meetings with staff members that lasted much of Saturday and concluded Sunday. Those talks were spurred by the nearly 300page contract proposal the NHL presented to the union Thursday. It isnt yet clear if this offer will swiftly lead to new bargaining, perhaps as early as Sunday or Monday. There have been no negotiations since the sides met with a federal mediator Dec. 13 The union said it was having internal discussions Sunday afternoon. All games through Jan. 14 have been canceled, claiming more than 50 percent of the schedule. The NHL wants to reach a deal by Jan. 11 and open the season Jan. 19, with a 48-game schedule. Bargaining sessions with only the NHL and union havent been held since Dec. 6, when talks abruptly ended after the players association made a counterproposal to the leagues previous offer. The league said that offer was contingent on the union accepting three elements unconditionally and without further bargaining. The NHL then pulled all existing offers off the table. Two days of sessions with mediators the following week ended without progress. A person familiar with key points of the offer told The Associated Press that the league proposed raising the limit of individual free-agent contracts to six years from five seven years if a team re-signs its own player; raising the salary variance from one year to another to 10 percent, up from 5 percent; and one compliance buyout for the 2013-14 season that wouldnt count toward a teams salary cap but would be included in the overall players share of income. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the new offer werent being discussed publicly. The NHL maintained the deferred payment amount of $300 million it offered in its previous proposal, an increase from an earlier offer of $211 million. The initial $300 million offer was pulled after negotiations broke off this month. The latest proposal is for 10 years, running through the 2021-22 season, with both sides having the right to opt out after eight years. It is still possible this dispute could eventually be settled in the courts if the sides cant reach a deal on their own. The NHL filed a classaction suit this month in U.S. District Court in New York in an effort to show its lockout is legal. In a separate move, the league filed an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board, contending bad-faith bargaining by the union. Time running out as NHL, union end latest talks Bucs end tough season on a high note Associated PressTampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Leonard Johnson breaks up a pass for Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White on Sunday during the second half in Atlanta. The Buccaneers won 22-17. Associated PressATLANTA Compared to the last five miserable weeks, Tampa Bay rookie running back Doug Martin sensed something different this time. Martin got all the proof he needed when the Buccaneers, though out of the playoffs for the fifth straight year, needed just 2 minutes to respond to a fourth-quarter touchdown by Atlanta. I could see it in everybodys eyes out there, Martin said. They werent going to let that happen. Everybody just started to show up. Martin rushed for 142 yards, Josh Freeman and Mike Williams connected on a short touchdown pass and Tampa Bay snapped a five-game losing streak to end the season with a 2217 victory Sunday. Despite falling short of their postseason goals again, the Bucs at least were able to leave the Georgia Dome feeling some self-respect. That was hardly the case last season, when they suffered a 10th straight loss in a Falcons rout and learned the next day that Raheem Morris had been fired as head coach. Atlanta, just like this year, was on its way to the playoffs.

Colts 28, Texans 16INDIANAPOLIS The Indianapolis Colts made Chuck Pagano a winner in his return to the sideline. Andrew Luck threw for two touchdowns and Deji Karim swung the game with a 101-yard kickoff return in the third quarter, giving the Colts a 28-16 victory over Houston. It was Paganos first game back as coach since starting treatment for leukemia Sept. 26. Indianapolis (11-5) heads into the playoffs as the No. 5 seed and on a roll. The Colts will open the postseason next weekend against the Baltimore Ravens.Bengals 23, Ravens 17CINCINNATI Carlos Dunlap returned an interception 14 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Ravens (10-6) had already clinched their second straight AFC North title, and they will open the playoffs at home against Indianapolis, which defeated Houston on Sunday. The Ravens let quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice play only two series. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and receiver A.J. Green sat out the second half.Bears 26, Lions 24DETROIT Jay Cutler threw for 257 yards and a touchdown and helped seal the game with a late scramble. Chicago (10-6) needed a Minnesota loss to Green Bay to reach the postseason. The Lions (4-12) lost their last eight games and turned the ball over four times in the finale. Calvin Johnson fell short in his attempt to become the first player with 2,000 yards receiving in a season. Cutlers 19-yard run on third down helped Chicago run out the clock late in the fourth quarter.Giants 42, Eagles 7EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. There will be no Super Bowl repeat for the Giants. Not even a playoff berth despite Eli Mannings career-high five touchdown passes. The Giants (9-7) playoff hopes ended minutes after routing the Eagles in what may have been coach Andy Reids final game for Philadelphia. Chicagos win over Detroit ended New Yorks long-shot playoff chances. The loss means that it will be seven straight seasons that the Super Bowl champion has failed to win a playoff game the following year. Philadelphia closed the season 4-12.Steelers 24, Browns 10PITTSBURGH Ben Roethlisberger threw three short touchdown passes, and Pittsburgh avoided its first losing season in nearly a decade. Antonio Brown, Leonard Pope and Plaxico Burress scored for the Steelers (8-8). Pittsburghs top-ranked defense forced four turnovers as the Steelers won for just the second time in the last six weeks, a slide that knocked them out of the playoffs for the first time since 2009. Clevelands third-string quarterback, Thaddeus Lewis, passed for 204 yards with a touchdown and an interception in his first NFL start. But the Browns (5-11) dropped their third straight in what is likely coach Pat Shurmurs final game.Bills 28, Jets 9ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. C.J. Spiller scored on a 66-yard catch and run in helping underachieving Buffalo, while Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez had two more turnovers. Safety Bryan Scott also returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown for the Bills (6-10), who snapped a threegame skid. The Bills finished last in the AFC East for a fifth straight season amid speculation about coach Chan Gaileys job security. Sanchez may have started his final game for the Jets (6-10), who closed the season with three consecutive losses amid all sorts of turmoil.Titans 38, Jaguars 20NASHVILLE, Tenn. Tennessee became the first NFL team with two players scoring twice on returns in closing out the season with two wins in its final three games. Darius Reynaud scored on two punt returns and rookie linebacker Zach Brown returned two interceptions for touchdowns. The Titans finished 6-10 and await owner Bud Adams decision on whether to keep coach Mike Munchak, who has two years left on his contract. The Jaguars (2-14) wrapped up their worst season with their 12th loss in 13 games, and now owner Shad Khan has to decide on the futures of general manager Gene Smith and first-year coach Mike Mularkey.Panthers 44, Saints 38NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees made more NFL history, but so did the Saints porous defense in a loss to Carolina. DeAngelo Williams rushed for 210 yards, including touchdown runs of 54 and 12 yards, for Carolina (7-9), which closed the season with four straight wins. His 65-yard gain set up the first of three 1-yard scoring runs by Mike Tolbert. Brees passed for 396 yards, giving him 5,177 this season. The Saints (7-9) also gave up 530 yards, raising their season total to 7,042 to break the record of 6,793 allowed by the 1981 Baltimore Colts.Chargers 24, Raiders 21SAN DIEGO Micheal Spurlock returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown and San Diego beat the Oakland Raiders 24-21 on a wet, gloomy Sunday in whats expected to be Norv Turners final game as Chargers coach. Turner and general manager A.J. Smith are expected to be fired because the Chargers (7-9) missed the playoffs for the third straight season. The Raiders finished 4-12. Spurlock became the first Chargers player to have a kickoff and punt return for touchdowns in consecutive weeks. He returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown a week earlier in a victory against the New York Jets.49ers 27, Cardinals 13SAN FRANCISCO Michael Crabtree caught touchdown passes of 49 and 7 yards and finished with a career-high 172 yards, leading the San Francisco 49ers to a second straight NFC West title with a 27-13 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Colin Kaepernick overcame a slow start to throw for a career-best 276 yards and two TDs as the Niners (11-4-1) did their part to control the postseason picture but were still waiting on Green Bays result at Minnesota to know whether they would earn the NFCs No. 2 seed. Frank Gore ran for a 2-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter for his franchise-best 51st touchdown rushing.Seahawks 20, Rams 13SEATTLE Russell Wilson tied Peyton Mannings record for most touchdown passes by a rookie with 26, and his 1-yard TD run with 1:39 left gave Seattle a 20-13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday and an 8-0 home mark for the Seahawks. Seattle (11-5) entered the day with hopes of still winning the NFC West and getting a home playoff game, but those dreams were dashed when San Francisco beat Arizona 27-13 to clinch the division. Seattle finished as the only unbeaten team at home in the NFL.Broncos 38, Chiefs 3DENVER Peyton Manning threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns Sunday to lift Denver to a 38-3 win over Kansas City that sealed the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs for the Broncos. Manning finished the season with 4,659 yards, only 41 short of his career high. He finished with 37 touchdown passes, and none will be more memorable than the last two circus catches by Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas that turned the game into a blowout. Denver (13-3) won its 11th straight and leaped past Houston for the top seed after the Texans lost to Indianapolis 28-16 earlier in the day. The Chiefs gained only 119 yards all day and finished their season 2-14. They will get the top pick in Aprils draft.Vikings 37, Packers 34MINNEAPOLIS Adrian Peterson came within 9 yards of Eric Dickersons rushing record on Sunday, finishing with 199 yards and powering the Minnesota Vikings into the playoffs, 37-34 over Green Bay. That forced a rematch with the Packers next weekend in a wild-card game. Peterson rushed for 36 yards on the last drive, plenty for rookie Blair Walshs 29-yard field goal as time expired to put the Vikings (10-6) in the postseason. The Packers (11-5) fell to the NFCs No. 3 seed. Aaron Rodgers completed 28 of 40 passes for 365 yards and four touchdowns and no turnovers, connecting with Jordy Nelson from 2 yards to tie the game with 2:54 remaining. But Christian Ponder threw for three scores, including one to Peterson.Patriots 28, Dolphins 0FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes and the New England Patriots regained their dominance after a rare slump, earning a playoff bye with a 28-0 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Stevan Ridley ran for two touchdowns as the Patriots used a ball-control offense and a defense that racked up a seasonhigh seven sacks. Now, seeded second in the AFC, they have an extra week to savor the win and prepare for their postseason opener. The Dolphins (7-9) finished with a losing record for the fourth straight season. CARLOS AVILA GONZALEZ /San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree scores on a 49-yard touchdown reception Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals during the second quarter in San Francisco. Associated PressThanks to Houstons late-season slump, Denver and New England will have byes when the AFC playoffs begin next week. The Texans fell from first to third in the conference Sunday when they lost 28-16 at Indianapolis, which welcomed back coach Chuck Pagano after nearly three months of treatments for leukemia. AFC West champion Denver won its 11th straight game, 38-3 over Kansas City to secure the top seed. New England blanked Miami 28-0 for the second spot. Minnesota edged Green Bay 37-34 to grab the final NFC wild card, sinking the Packers to the third seed. Those teams will meet again next week at Lambeau Field. The other NFC matchup will have Seattle (11-5), which beat St. Louis 20-13, at either Washington or Dallas. Those teams met Sunday night for the NFC East crown. Cincinnati (10-6) will be at Houston and Indianapolis (11-5) at Baltimore (10-6) in the AFC wild-card rounds. Peyton Manning threw for three touchdowns as Denver (13-3) routed the Chiefs. New England (12-4) got the second seed despite having the same record as Houston because it beat the Texans, who lost three of their final four games. Baltimore Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed is looking forward to a reunion with Pagano. He wishes it would come a little later in the postseason. Chucks like a dad to me, Reed said He means a lot to me. I would have much rather seen them in the AFC championship game than the first game. But Reed will see him next week at Baltimore. The Ravens had a chance to move up to the AFCs third seed with a win and a New England loss. But Baltimore lost at Cincinnati as both teams played backups for much of the game. The defending Super Bowl champion Giants are out of contention. When Chicago beat Detroit 2624, the Giants (9-7) were eliminated, even though they routed Philadelphia 42-7. Minnesotas win eliminated Chicago, which the Vikings swept this season. NFL CAPSULES Broncos snag bye, Vikes sneak by

Ronde Barber said. I think everybody doesnt feel great about the season, of course, but well definitely be proud of the way we played this last game. Tampa Bay (7-9) relieved some frustration against an NFC South rival that had ended its four-game winning on Nov. 25. The Bucs had not won since, but on Sunday they answered appropriately each time the Falcons (13-3) threatened to take the lead. Martins 40-yard touchdown late in the third quarter was significant because Atlanta had cut the lead to six after Asante Samuel picked off Freeman and Michael Turner scored on a 17-yard run. Erik Lorig, our fullback, did a good job of staying on his guy, and also Donald Penn, our left tackle, stayed on his guy, Martin said. I just pressed it and bounced it out and then broke two tackles, and it was off to the races. The score was important, too, because it helped restore Freemans confidence. The fourth-year quarterback had thrown four interceptions in each of the last two weeks as New Orleans and St. Louis outscored the Bucs by a combined 69-13. That wasnt the case this time. Any time you have a turnover, you have to respond, Freeman said. Its happened a number of times this year. A lot of times we responded. Sometimes we didnt respond, but especially when youre on the road and the team is as good as the Falcons are or really any team, its crucial to respond. Tampa Bays defense began the game ranked first against the run and last against the pass, but the Bucs were stout in both facets. They played lots of zone coverage and let their linemen and occasional blitz packages keep pressure on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. The Falcons 275 total offensive yards were their second-fewest this season as defensive ends Daniel TeoNesheim and Michael Bennett combined with defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and linebacker Lavonte David with two sacks for minus-25 yards and six quarterback hits. Middle linebacker Mason Foster finished with 12 tackles, 11 of them solo stops, and safety Mark Barron made arguably the Bucs defensive play of the game when he knocked down a fourth-down pass to tight end Tony Gonzalez with 2:02 remaining. The few pressures we did bring really were runstoppers, Barber said. We did a good job of first and second down to what we thought were manageable third downs to get off the field. Its been a problem for us all year, but its how you win football games in this league. Offensively, Freeman surpassed 4,000 yards passing for the first time in his career. Martin, who began the game ranked third in NFL yards from scrimmage, averaged 5.1 yards on 28 attempts, and Williams beat Samuel in the back of the end zone for an 8-yard score that gave Tampa Bay a seven-point lead midway through the second quarter. Dekoda Watson sparked the special teams by blocking a second-quarter punt that led to the second of Connor Barths three field goals. The Bucs played their best against Atlantas starters for four quarters. Despite having the NFCs No. 1 seed and homefield advantage in the playoffs clinched last week, Falcons coach Mike Smith kept his first-string players on the field for the entire game. This team, I think, never really takes it for granted that they get to do this (for a living), first-year Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said. Its a good thing to be able to use all of your cumulative experiences and make up who you are and what you do. Freeman said he would take some satisfaction in the victory even though it came too late to save the season. If you end the year without winning the Super Bowl, your season cant be considered a success, Freeman said. But certainly Im optimistic. Weve got a lot of pieces and a number of guys well get back on the team this offseason. Looking forward, Im really excited. NOTES: Martin was the only Tampa Bay running back with a carry. WR Tiquan Underwood and Freeman each had one carry for 1 yard. ... Bryants first-quarter field goal was his 33rd of the season, setting a Falcons record. Jay Feely had 32 field goals in 2002. ... Tony Gonzalez reached 90 catches to become the first NFL tight end with five seasons of 90 or more receptions. ... Ryans TD pass gave him a team-record 32 for the season. Steve Bartkowski threw 31 TD passes in 1980. ... Jacquizz Rodgers had a game-high eight catches for 50 yards and led Atlanta with 28 yards rushing on five carries.SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE On the AIRWAVES TODAYS SPORTS COLLEGE BASKETBALL 12 p.m. (ESPN2) Cincinnati at Pittsburgh 2 p.m. (ESPN2) Michigan State at Minnesota 4 p.m. (ESPN2) Indiana at Iowa 6 p.m. (ESPN2) Gonzaga at Oklahoma State 8 p.m. (ESPN2) Harvard at St. Marys NBA BASKETBALL 3 p.m. (WGN-A) Charlotte Bobcats at Chicago Bulls 5 p.m. (FSNFL) (SUN) Miami Heat at Orlando Magic COLLEGE FOOTBALL 12 p.m. (ESPN) Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl: North Carolina State vs. Vanderbilt.

Associated PressWashington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III scores a touchdown Sunday in front of Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins during the second half in Landover, Md. Skins win 28-18, punch ticket to postseason Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. RG3 and the Washington Redskins are NFC East champions. Robert Griffin III ran for a touchdown, and fellow rookie Alfred Morris rushed for 200 yards and three scores Sunday night as the Redskins won their first division title in 13 years by beating the Dallas Cowboys 28-18. The Redskins are 10-6 and will host the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday, having won seven straight since their bye week. Washington is the first NFL team to rally from 3-6 to make the postseason since the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1996. The Redskins would have been out of the postseason with a loss. Instead, the Cowboys will miss the playoffs for the third straight year. Dallas finished 8-8, stumbling in a do-or-die end-of-regular-season game for the third time in five years.

Associated PressNeil Armstrong would always be taking that first step onto the moon, and Dick Clark was forever the worlds oldest teenager. Some of the notables who died in 2012 created images in our minds that remained unchanged over decades. Sadly, for others an established image was shattered by a fall from grace. Whitney Houston ruled as a queen of pop music, but years of hard living harmed her voice while erratic behavior and a troubled marriage took a toll on her image. The year saw the deaths of a number of TV stars including Larry Hagman, who played oil baron J.R. Ewing on Dallas, and Jack Klugman, often remembered as the messy one of the 1970s roommates in The Odd Couple. Here is a roll call of some of the people who died in 2012. JANUARY: Jimmy Castor, 71.

April 19. Levon Helm, 71. Key member of the rock group The Band. April 19. MAY: George Lindsey, 83. He made a TV career as a grinning service station attendant named Goober on The Andy Griffith Show and Hee Haw. May 6. Donna Summer, 63, disco queen. May 17. Robin Gibb, 62.

Police Officer Norma Eisenman said Williams was taken into custody Friday after the LA County Department of Children and Family Services did a welfare check at his home. Authorities found more than one firearm, one of which had been reported stolen. Eisenman said the DCFS did not specify how many children lived at the home or whether they were removed. The 41-year-old was arrested this month on a felony warrant related to a police chase. In November, he was accused of hitting a man on the head with a bottle during a fight. Katt Williams Spotlight onPEOPLE Final goodbye Birthday Not only are improvements in your financial situation indicated in the year ahead, but it looks like your social life will also be picking up considerably. You wont have anything to complain about. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Someone who is deeply interested in you but isnt demonstrative might once again quietly do something nice for you. Be more alert. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Youre likely to make an extremely good impression on someone you meet. This could be the start of a close bond and a special relationship. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) A certain endeavor will give you a real sense of achievement. Youll like the way you handle things, and youll gain the admiration of others. Aries (March 21-April 19) Perhaps more than you may realize, youve become extremely popular with your peers lately. Something really nice might happen to make you recognize this fact. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Instead of waiting and hoping something good will happen, take control of your destiny, and work hard to make important changes occur. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Dont be reluctant to make a rather difficult decision, especially if you have the necessary vital facts at your disposal. Just do what you believe is best for everybody. Cancer (June 21-July 22) The new year indicates a great deal of improvement concerning your financial interests, but, of course, you must be alert in order to take advantage of these winds of change. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Even if your desires are of a material nature, you must first focus on the human relationships involved. This might entail taking a circuitous route to get what you want. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There are still plenty of opportunities to break through certain avenues that you have either missed or ignored. Check out every possibility that comes your way. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Because your chart indicates that you will be quite popular with members of the opposite gender, this could turn out to be a rather extraordinary day for you. Make the most of it. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you are in need of a special favor, your chances of getting it are pretty good, but you must first ask for help. People cant read minds, so dont expect them to automatically know your needs. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) News youve been anxiously awaiting is on its way, and its likely to be good. If you have to go out, check all your sources of incoming info as often as you can.

The oldest Mardi Gras parade group in Jefferson Parish says its 2013 parade will be double the size of the one in 2011. The Krewe of Grela sat out the last Carnival season after the city of Gretna said its budget could not handle the cost of police and public works services for parades. It said Grela would have to pay $69,000 to $81,000 to parade on Mardi Gras. Other West Bank parade groups changed their routes to stay out of Gretna, which had no parades in 2012. This year, council members provided $60,000 from their discretionary funds for the parade. This is going to be something that the West Bank has not seen since the West Bank was booming, krewe captain Russell Lloyd, who also is a captain in the Gretna Police Department, told The Advocate. People are going to want to be a part of this. He said Grela plans more than 700 riders on 22 floats and 10 truck floats, and has commitments from more than a dozen bands. The honorary marshal is Sal Divincenti, a 100year-old former Gretna business owner. Page B4MONDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, DECEMBER31, 2012 B5 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.George Bernard Shaw said, My way of joking is to tell the truth. Its the funniest joke in the world. During the year, I must teach about 200 classes. There are some funny things that happen, but most of the time you had to be there. However, this was the funniest reportable deal of this year and what comes is the unedited truth. First, though, how should South play in seven hearts after West leads the club king? I had anticipated Souths using Blackwood twice, learning that partner had one ace and no king, and settling for six hearts or six no-trump. Bidding the grand slam was a gamble. One actual auction is given, North not holding any prisoners with her leap to five diamonds. Then South, unable to use Blackwood, jumped majestically to seven hearts. In seven hearts, South has one club loser and only 12 winners. But declarer can eliminate his club loser and get a 13th winner with a two-step process. After winning the first trick, he cashes dummys diamond ace and his three top spades, discarding dummys remaining club, ruffs his club seven on the board, and claims the rest of the tricks with his eight high trumps. It was lucky that West didnt lead a trump. What was so funny? At one table, South opened one heart. This was passed out. Then South said to me, I think Ill make it!

His children from a prior marriage were encouraged by their mother to tell falsehoods about our home life. She was planning to leave the state and needed full custody in order to take them, and she ultimately accomplished this. We went to counseling and considered legal action, but realized that even if we won, we no longer agreed on how to parent these kids. The constant discord did some damage to our marriage. My husband put up with a lot of nastiness as long as the kids would see him. I tried to help, but couldnt tolerate their continuing dishonesty and disrespect. The kids eventually developed problems in their personal lives, school and jobs. Slowly, my husband rebuilt a relationship with them, but in doing so, he allowed me to be viewed as the enemy. I stopped being included in family plans. Now his ex-wife and grown children treat my husband as if he is single. The holidays are fine, since the grown children spend them with their mother, and my husband spends his with our little family. However, he attends his childrens graduations, weddings and birthdays without me. I love my husband. He is happy with us and lets us know. Most of all, he thanks us for allowing him to be a normal parent. He has his adult children in his life and sees them once or twice a year, but the situation is becoming increasingly untenable to me. I no longer know what line to draw. Where do we go from here? The Second Wife Dear Second: Actually, the line was drawn some time ago: Your husband attends his grown childrens functions without you. This is not ideal, but it also doesnt have to be cause for constant misery. It would show tremendous grace for you to tell your husband to go and spend time with his adult children, without any residual bitterness on your part. Its only once or twice a year, and we suspect Hubby would be enormously grateful. Dear Annie: My husband, whom I love, has sleep apnea, snores loudly and refuses to wear a CPAP. He also wont see his doctor about alternatives. How am I supposed to get any sleep? I need my rest. Tired in Nebraska Dear Tired: We trust your husband is aware of the severe health risks of having untreated sleep apnea. However, you cannot force him to do anything about it, so we recommend that you invest in earplugs or that one of you sleep in another room. Dear Annie: Im responding to Want My Husband Back, whose married life turned to hell when her husband retired. When I married my wife, I was very sports minded and adventurous with several hobbies. My wife was not interested in those things. I managed to teach her cribbage, but that was about it. Now, we are both retired and work part time a couple of days a week. I started to explore some on the edge sports, and I forgot about her. After she called me on the carpet about it, I realized she had a point. All of my activities were directed toward me, and she was on the outside. We decided on a course adjustment, and now Im enjoying the opera while she is learning about extreme sports. She has even expressed some interest in trying one. The best part is, were together so much more often that its like we went back in time 45 years. And our private time together has really improved. We have an agenda every day, even when we work. So my advice for retired couples is to call a timeout, make some adjustments and have fun.

San Antonio won 111-86. Associated PressDALLAS Tony Parker had 21 points and nine assists, Manu Ginobili had several key baskets among his 20 points and the San Antonio Spurs handed the Dallas Mavericks their sixth straight loss, 111-86 on Sunday night. Dirk Nowitzki had eight points on 3-of-9 shooting a week after making a surprise return in a 38-point loss to the Spurs in San Antonio. The Spurs led all the way, with Tim Duncan helping a 20-6 start by hitting several jump shots. He finished with 18 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks. Darren Collison scored 18 points to lead the Mavericks, whose losing streak is their longest since January of their championship season in 2010-11. Dallas was within five in the third quarter when Ginobili hit a 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down, and he made an even longer 3 with the shot clock inside a second to put San Antonio ahead 80-70. He finished the third quarter the same way he did the second with a last-second shot that put the Spurs up by 12. O.J. Mayo, Dallas leading scorer, was held under 10 points for the fourth time in five games. He came in averaging 9 points on 33 percent shooting the previous four games and finished with eight on 4 of 14 shooting.Pistons 96, Bucks 94AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Tayshaun Prince made two free throws with 10.9 seconds left to give Detroit a 96-94 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks after the Pistons blew a 14-point lead. Prince scored 20 points, and Greg Monroe added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Detroit, which had five players in double figures. Charlie Villanueva and Brandon Knight added 11 points apiece, and Jason Maxiell scored 10 for the Pistons. Monta Ellis had 30 points and nine assists, and Erson Ilyasova scored 24 points for the Bucks. Ellis hit a fallaway baseline jumper with 1:06 left, after almost losing the ball out of bounds, to give the Bucks their first lead, 94-92. But Princes hook shot tied the score with 50.5 seconds remaining. Ellis missed a jumper with 31.9 seconds to go and Maxiell got the rebound. Following a timeout, Luc Mbah a Moute fouled Prince, who stepped to the line and made both free throws. Ilyasovas 3-pointer with 1:43 left tied it at 92 to complete the comeback from a 14-point deficit. Detroit led 78-71 going into the fourth quarter after leading 72-58 on Monroe's jumper with 4:14 left in the third. The Pistons jumped out to an early 13-0 lead, holding the Bucks scoreless until 8:07 remained in the first quarter when Ellis made a driving layup. Milwaukee battled back to 19-17 on Ellis two free throws with 4:03 left in the first and 21-19 with 3:02 remaining on a driving layup by Ellis. Spurs take early lead, send Mavs to sixth straight loss
