In his first public speech in six months, Assad laid out terms for a peace plan that keeps himself in power, ignoring international demands to step down and pledging to continue the battle as long as there is one terrorist left in Syria.

The signatures are from citizens opposed to reducing the flow of the Chass ahowitzka River. Determining minimum flows and levels for rivers a hot topic in 2012 A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerFor the uninitiated, MFLs or minimum flows and levels is beginning to hold water. In the past year, some county residents have been embroiled in a point-andcounterpoint debate with officials with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) over water flow levels at two of the countys seven rivers. It culminated in a compromise of sorts by SWFWMDs governing board. The water district board rejected the staffs recommended levels of flow, reducing the proposed minimum flow for the Chassahowitzka River from an initial recommendation. The board voted to set the MFLs for each river at 3 percent. The SWFWMD staff recommendation was initially for 3 and 9 percent respectively for the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka rivers. The board also instructed SWFWMD staff to develop the framework for a water use cautionary area for Hernando and Citrus counties and present it to the board in June 2013. Cautionary areas require more stringent water withdrawal permit rules. The compromise also requires MFLs be reviewed every six years rather than the usual 10 years. Many locals and environmental advocates are not pleased. Brad Rimbey, who is with SOS NOW, an umbrella group of disparate environmental MFL debate continues Syrian President Bashar Assad gestures while he speaks Sunday at the Opera House in central Damascus, Syria. Associated Press See SYRIA / Page A8 PUBLIC HEARING The Southwest Florida Water Management District has scheduled a public hearing to give affected persons an opportunity to present evidence and argument on the rules proposed by the district to establish minimum flows for the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka River Systems. District staff will be available to respond to questions or comments regarding the proposed rules. The public hearing will be 10 a.m. until noon Tuesday, Jan. 15, in the districts governing board room, at 2379 Broad St., Brooksville.

No relief is in sight, since you have no dental insurance. Your only option of temporary liberation is the emergency room. However, you know in the back of your head they will only provide a figurative Band-Aid to your pain; once the pain medication wears off, the toothache will be back. You sigh in confusion, not knowing what to do to fix the problem. Nature Coast Ministries and Catholic Charities recognized the predicament faced by many and have a resolution a free, permanent dental clinic. The Knights of Columbus donated its building at 9020 W.

Around the COUNTY Take part in TPO teleconference The results of the 2010 U.S. Census indicated sufficient population growth to merit Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) merging with another countys Metropolitan Planning Organization. Based upon the expected growth and development of the region, the department believes the most effective regional transportation planning process would be accomplished by combining the Homosassa Springs-Beverly Hills-Citrus Springs urbanized area with one of the adjacent MPOs, Ananth Prasad, secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation, said in a letter sent in November to the TPO. The TPOs Technical Advisory Committee and Citizens Advisory Committee will host a joint meeting by teleconference at 2 p.m. Wednesday to discuss merging with Hernando Countys MPO. To take part in the teleconference, call 800-9987433. Housing committee to meet Jan. 15 The Citrus County Affordable Housing Advisory Committee will meet at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15, in room 166 in the Lecanto Government Building.

From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Port board set to sign study deal C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerExecuting an agreement with TranSystems Corporation to prepare a feasibility study for Port Citrus will account for most of the business at Tuesdays meeting of the Citrus County Port Authority board. It has taken nearly two years for county government to get to this stage in its quest to determine if a commercial seaport could be developed along the former Cross Florida Barge Canal site in the northwest section of the county. After a legal challenge to its first selection process for a consultant to conduct the feasibility study, the board met in October to repeat the process. It chose TranSystems Corporation for the task and its negotiating team has met with TranSystems representatives to draw up a mutually agreeable scope of services document. TranSystems will charge $100,000 for the study. Half the funding will come from the Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development (FSTED) Council. The other half will be met by CLM Workforce Connection $15,000, Citrus County business license fees $15,000, Citrus County Economic Development Council $12,000 and port authority $8,000. TranSystems intends to approach the assignment as a three-phased project with costs budgeted at each phase. The first phase would determine if the establishment of Port Citrus would be economically viable. If the first phase found Port Citrus not to be feasible, TranSystems proposed to suspend the study. This phase would be completed within 140 days and cost $20,000. The second phase would identify funding sources and make preliminary applications for funding. This phase would be completed within 120 days and cost $30,000. The third phase would refine market analysis to identify potential market opportunities and port customers. This phase would be completed within 270 to 360 days of the start of the project and cost $50,000. The completed feasibility study would be used as a marketing tool to attract commercial interest in developing Port Citrus. The study is expected to be completed within one year. Under a 2011 state law that added Citrus as the 18th member of FSTED Council, the port authority has until July 1, 2014, to conduct a feasibility study.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

This weekend marks the 107th annual Epiphany celebration for the Greek Orthodox community. Events include the blessing of the waters, a traditional litany procession and a cross dive. Forty-seven male teens dove into 65-degree water Sunday to grab the cross. Sixteen year-old Vassilios Harding was the first to retrieve it and was blessed by the pope and carried off on the shoulders of fellow divers as he hoisted the cross in the air. The winner is said to be blessed with one years good luck.Semi full of bulls crashes on Interstate GAINESVILLE A crash on I-75 in central Florida snarled traffic after a semitrailer hauling 32 bulls blew a tire and slammed into a tree. Florida Highway Patrol officials said three of the bulls got loose after Saturdays accident and one had to be shot because it was too aggressive. The Gainesville Sun reported a crew of people including cowboys, veterinarians and state troopers, set up chutes with portable metal fences to offload the bulls from the semi into trailers that would transport them to South Florida. Bryan Martin said he and driver Travis Carr were hauling the bulls from Texas to Indiantown. The truck driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Bald eagles, hatchlings viewed on webcam FORT MYERS Millions are descending on southwest Florida to spy on some of their most famous citizens American bald eagles Ozzie and Harriet. The world watched via webcam as the eagles recently added two hatchlings to their nest. One came on New Years Day and a sibling came three days later. The News-Press reported more than 2.7 million streams have been recorded on the eagle cam installed above the nest. The babies will likely stay in the nest until late March. Dick Pritchett owns the property where the nest resides. He said the family installed the camera after hearing about other eagle cameras around the country, saying they wanted to share the experience with the world. Mans body found floating in Hudson canal HUDSON BEACH Authorities are investigating after a mans body was found floating in a canal near Hudson Beach. Pasco County Sheriffs officials found the body floating in the canal Saturday afternoon and said there are no obvious signs of foul play. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death and identify the body. A citizen first called the Coast Guard to report the body. Reporter making lasting memories J AN T UCKWOOD The Palm Beach Post WEST PALM BEACH Susan Spencer-Wendel made a career covering courts and criminals, so shes used to asking tough questions. Now that shes the subject of national media attention herself, she appreciates journalists who tackle the hard stuff head-on like the question shes been asked several times recently: Do you think this is your last Christmas? Her answer is direct: Yes. So by jove were gonna enjoy it! Creating lasting memories from last holidays and celebrating joy in every moment has been Susans quest since summer 2011, when she learned she had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) Lou Gehrigs disease. As the incurable disease began to wither her muscles, Susan took control like the resourceful reporter she is: She decided that if her time would be limited, she would squeeze every bit of fun out of it. She planned bucket-list trips with her dearest loved ones, then wrote about two of them in ThePalm Beach Post, where she had been courts reporter for 11 years. Stories of her amazing trips one to see the Northern Lights with her best friend, Nancy, and one to Budapest to celebrate her 20th wedding anniversary with her husband, John got the attention of book publishers. HarperCollins paid approximately $2 million for Susans life story, and Universal paid $2 million more for movie rights. Susan typed her memoir, Until I Say Goodbye, in three months on an iPhone with the one finger that has not forsaken her: Her right thumb. The book will be published in March and translated into 25 languages. It is now available for preorder and has its own website susanspencer wendel.com and Facebook page. HarperCollins calls Susans story a powerfully emotional, inspirational and irrepressibly joyous look at the things that matter most. Until I Say Goodbye is the fulfillment of her final wish: To make people laugh and cry and hug their children and joke with their friends and dwell in how wonderful it is to be alive. Susan wrote an email update on her life which has recently been full of interviews with reporters from People, the Today show, NPR and The Associated Press and more to share with Postreaders: I so enjoy meeting the journalists. Seeing what they create and how talented they are. People shared their stories with me for so many years, I consider it a privilege to share mine with them. We taped a lot of media these past weeks as my voice becomes more slurred everyday. All the content is due to be aired around March 12 the books release date. By then, my voice will be unintelligible. My decline is speeding up: each day I lose more steps and words. I now choke at most every meal, episodes which leave people around me screaming Should we call 911? Ergo, I dont eat much anymore. I knew it would be this way. So for Thanksgiving we had our major holiday event. Our entire families 40 in all came. Was wonderful. Hectic, but wonderful. Thus, Christmas is a time just for John and me and our children. The family enjoyed the day at their home in Lake Clarke Shores, where Susans favorite writing spot is the big chickee hut in the backyard. From wire reports

going to come to the board and start talking about the budget. Thorpe said the county budget would feature at every meeting this year of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). This action is in response to a $17 million shortfall that arose in late November when the county learned that its biggest taxpayer, Progress Energy Florida, would refuse to pay its full 2012 tax bill. Thorpe said he planned to take time at each BOCC meeting to break down the countys $231 million budget for commissioners and residents to understand how the county is funded and what its services cost. Were going to break it down; were going to boil it out, Thorpe said. Were going to talk about what the general fund is all about. Thorpe will introduce this discussion at 2:30 p.m. as his first budget forecast review detailing the budget for the upcoming fiscal year 2013-14. From these talks, taxpayers can advise the BOCC whether taxes should increase, services should decrease or a combination of both. Thorpe also will lead a discussion about the interlocal agreement with the Citrus County School Board on concurrency and impact fees. The school board has advised that it does not want concurrency provisions to be removed from the interlocal agreement and it wants to continue collection of school impact fees. If the BOCC decides to suspend impact fees for schools, an analysis will need to be conducted to consider the effect it will place on the school boards capital facilities program. Commissioners are expected to decide and instruct staff. The BOCC also will be asked to proceed with the agreement between Citrus County Port Authority and TranSystems for the consultant firm to prepare a feasibility study for Port Citrus. At 1:15 p.m., the BOCC will present certificates, proclamations and employee service awards. Recognition will be given to Lowes Inverness store, Beverly Hills Surveillance Unit and the Craftsmans Guild Inc. for co-sponsoring and supporting the AdoptA-Tree event Dec. 14 at the Central Ridge Community Center at Beverly Hills. Public Hearings will begin at 2 p.m. The first will consider a street vacation application regarding roadways in the Crystal River Airport area. At 2:10 p.m., a public hearing will consider the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) rental development strategy 2013.

What we want is for them (SWFWMD) to follow the law, Rimbey said. He said his group would like to see the law as called for by the rules of the Outstanding Florida Waters designation. An Outstanding Florida Water (OFW) is a water designated worthy of special protection because of its natural attributes. This special designation is applied to certain waters, and is intended to protect existing good water quality. We feel like they are failing to follow what that law says. What we need is restoration, certainly not further degradation, Rimbey said. Rimbey applauded the boards decision to broach the issue of designating the river systems as possible cautionary areas. SWFWMD officials have insisted the OFW rules do not apply in this case and that agency staff members have worked fastidiously since 2005 to fashion the best recommendations for the rivers. While officials acknowledge degradation at the rivers, they blame it on other factors, such as poor rainfall amounts a 20 percent to 30 percent drop rising sea levels and nutrient levels. They insist the agency came up with the most protective regime for these rivers stronger than for all other rivers except one. This year SWFWMD is expected to begin work on setting MFLs for the Crystal River and Kings Bay. Setting MFLs is mandated by state law.

medical personnel are volunteering their time and have received sovereign immunity through the Florida Volunteer Health Services Department to provide dental services free to needy Citrus County elderly, veterans, homeless and low-income adults. The health department offers dental care for children; however, there is no place for adults, said Tom Slagle, director of Nature Coast Ministries. All of our dentists are licensed by the state of Florida. Currently, they will focus only on extractions and fillings, as those are the typical dental emergency. Further down the line, organizers may consider expanding services. Also, times of operations are to be determined by dentist availability. The free dental program meets a glaring need in the community. One hospital was spending $750,000 a year on emergency care for people with dental emergencies, said Bonnie McMullin, public relations for Nature Coast Ministries. They were giving them medication and painkillers, but eight weeks later they were back because they ran out of medicine and the tooth wasnt fixed. It is a cycle. Recognizing the need in Citrus County, a retiring dentist in Sarasota donated his dental office equipment. A hospital donated money to purchase the rest of needed equipment. These dentists are going to come in and be working with the best equipment available, Slagle said. This is a huge thing for Citrus County. The need is tremendous. The dental clinic is ready to open; however, there is one thing standing in the way money for supplies and utilities. It costs $25 per person for supplies for dental work to be done. Work is performed for free; however, supplies and utilities need to be covered. If it cost $25 a person times 25 patients, that is $625 a week or $32,500 a year, McMullin said. We dont charge anyone for services, but if we dont have the supplies we cant help them. Slagle said Black Diamond in Lecanto donated $6,200 to buy the basic supplies. However, their struggle is to outline how to continue to compensate for supplies and utilities after the donation has been used. I tell individuals that if every household in Citrus County gave us a dollar a week, that would equal $52 a year, Slagle said. Thats two clients that could be treated. Citrus County transit will make six daily stops at the clinic. Say you live in Floral City, Slagle said, you can ride the bus from Floral City to our location and back for only $2. Slagle and McMullin feel a permanent dental clinic in Citrus County is life changing. It is such a blessing because these people couldnt afford to have this care, McMullin said. Some people in this community have never been to a dentist adults. This will be such a boon for peoples self esteem. Maybe for the first time in their life they will be able to get the tooth fixed that has been hurting them for months or years.

Rescue crews spent their fourth straight day looking for a skydiver who vanished during a jump above Washingtons Cascade foothills, but found no sign of the Florida man by dusk. King County sheriffs Sgt. Cindi West says 100 searchers were out near 4,200-foot Mount Si east of Seattle early Sunday to find 29-year-old Kurt Ruppert of Lake City. Ruppert hasnt been seen since he jumped out of a helicopter at 6,500 feet Thursday afternoon, wearing a special wing suit with fabric under the arms to allow him to glide like a flying squirrel. Crews narrowed their search area Saturday, based on data from Rupperts cellphone and the helicopters flight path. The search might continue Monday.

Opera House in central Damascus a sign by the besieged leader that he sees no need to hide or compromise even with the violent civil war closing in on his seat of power in the capital. The theater was packed with his supporters who interrupted the speech with applause, cheers and occasional fist-waving chants, including God, Bashar and Syria! The overtures that Assad offered a national reconciliation conference, elections and a new constitution were reminiscent of symbolic changes and concessions offered previously in the uprising that began in March 2011. Those were rejected at the time as too little, too late. The government last year adopted a constitution that theoretically allows political parties to compete with Assads ruling Baath Party. It carried out parliamentary elections that were boycotted by his opponents. Assad demanded that regional and Western countries must stop funding and arming the rebels trying to overthrow him. We never rejected a political solution ... but with whom should we talk? With those who have an extremist ideology, who only understand the language of terrorism? Or should we with negotiate puppets whom the West brought? he asked. We negotiate with the master, not with the slave, he answered. As in previous speeches and interviews, he clung to the view that the crisis was a foreign-backed plot and not an uprising against him and his familys decades-long rule. Is this a revolution and are these revolutionaries? By God, I say they are a bunch of criminals, he said. He stressed the presence of religious extremists among those fighting in Syria, calling them terrorists who carry the ideology of al-Qaida and servants who know nothing but the language of slaughter. He said the fighters sought to transform the country into a jihad land. Although he put up a defiant front, Assad laid out the grim reality of the violence, and he spoke in front of a collage of photos of what appeared to be Syrians killed in the fighting. We are now in a state of war in every sense of the word, Assad said, a war that targets Syria using a handful of Syrians and many foreigners. It is a war to defend the nation. He said Syria will take advice but not dictates from anyone a reference to outside powers calling on him to step down. The speech, which was denounced by the West, including the U.S. and Britain, came amid stepped-up international efforts for a peaceful way out of the Syrian conflict. Previous efforts have failed to stem the bloodshed. U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi met Assad last month to push for a peace plan for Syria based on a plan 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 until new elections can be held and a new constitution drafted. The opposition swiftly rejected Assads proposals. Those fighting to topple the regime have repeatedly said they will accept nothing less than his departure, dismissing any kind of settlement that leaves him in the picture. It is an excellent initiative that is only missing one crucial thing: His resignation, said Kamal Labwani, a veteran dissident and member of the oppositions Syrian National Coalition umbrella group. All what he is proposing will happen automatically, but only after he steps down, Labwani told The Associated Press by telephone from Sweden. Haitham Maleh, an opposition figure in Turkey, said Assad was offering the initiative because he feels increasingly besieged by advancing rebels. How could he expect us to converse with a criminal, a killer, a man who does not abide by the law? he asked. Assad has spoken only on rare occasions since the uprising began, and Sundays speech was his first since June. His last public comments came in an interview in November to Russian TV in which he vowed to live and die in Syria. On Sunday, he seemed equally confident in the ability of his troops to crush the rebellion despite the recent fighting in Damascus. He did not come across as a leader under siege, nor as a leader whose regime is on the verge of collapse, said Fawaz A. Gerges, head of the Middle East Center at the London School of Economics. He seemed determined that any political settlement must come on his terms, linking those terms with the Syrian national interest as if they are inseparable, he said. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement that Assads speech was yet another attempt by the regime to cling to power and does nothing to advance the Syrian peoples goal of a political transition. British Foreign Secretary William Hague called Assads speech beyond hypocritical. In a message posted on his official Twitter feed, Hague said empty promises of reform fool no one. European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashtons office said in a statement that the bloc will look carefully if there is anything new in the speech, but we maintain our position that Assad has to step aside and allow for a political transition. Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu of Turkey said the speech was filled with empty promises and repetitive pledges of reform by a leader out of touch with the Syrian people. It seems (Assad) has shut himself in his room, and for months has read intelligence reports that are presented to him by those trying to win his favor, Davutoglu told reporters in the Aegean port city of Izmir on Sunday. Turkey is a former ally of Damascus, and while Ankara first backed Assad after the uprising erupted, it turned against the regime after its violent crackdown on dissent. Observers said the speech signaled the violence would continue indefinitely as long as both sides lacked the ability to score a victory on the battlefield.

Lets talk videogamesStunned and stressed and reeling, were now immersed in the whats and whys of factors that triggered this massacre. Much of it includes postmortems by police gathering evidence and psychologists attributing motives, some plausible while others speculating widely. But it doesnt matter how gruesome the detail we still want to know. And now we attempt to deal with the aftermath, attempting to comprehend Sandy Hooks horror, an event relegated to history as a watershed moment in American atrocities. An act even more despicable than that of a savage, by a psychotic individual whose derangement went unnoticed or unheeded, and resulted in a plot to metaphorically play the ultimate video game, the slaughter of innocents. However, the lessons learned of this massacre need not go without positing some urgent common sense measures to mitigate similar occurrences in the future. We must begin by admitting that we share the guilt because of having been passively silent about the proliferation of pernicious elements rife in our society at large. For one, video games, which are designed for visceral gratification, yet the thematic of which is senseless destruction and unrepentant violence. Unsupervised youngsters tend to gravitate to ultra video games in earnest, unknowing that what they view is mentally toxic. And in other electronic media responsible adults tend to overlook obscenity, profanity, sexual abandon and gratuitous brutality as if those crude elements were acceptable prisms of entertainment for any age group. These are major factors in the context that imminent dangers lurk among the already mentally unstable, just waiting to burst. We would hope that this event will shake us from our slumber by engaging in serious dialogue to expose and underscore the infestations of ills increasingly prevalent in our society. For one, on all levels of government, citizen groups, academics, parents, teachers and clergy all forging an objective with one voice in common to be legislated and vigorously enforced. And two, a sobering awareness that we ought not be clothed in fear at what lurks around every corner, nor in our schools and here-and-about daily lives. Irrational fears breed irrational protections. Further fortressing and armoring can severely stunt much of everything that is constructively liberating. Rather overall, we are to foster a more wholesome, holistic and compassionate environment by suppressing perverse influences on clear and present danger grounds without sacrificing First Amendment rights. For like chickens are what chickens eat, youngsters are what they mentally ingest. May the dialogue ensue and immediately! Sam Raffa Citrus Springs Dont disarm usRecently some lunatic attacked school kids in a little town, killing some of them. Nobody really heard about it and the world didnt seem to care. There was no outpouring of grief and definitely no left wing liberals screaming to outlaw weapons. This little town was Cheng Ping, China, where 23 kids were stabbed by a lunatic. The previous year, 18 school kids were killed by murderers with knives. So why is there such an ongoing uproar about the terrible massacre in Newtown? The liberals love this kind of media coverage because the gun grabbers come out of the woodwork to find some way, any way to circumvent the Second Amendment of the Constitution. We dont see the gun grabbers saddened over the deaths of the kids in China because they cant use their massacre to attempt to take our weapons away. We see letters in the Chronicle from the perhaps well-meaning, but sadly misinformed liberals with their idea what part of the Second Amendment we should shave, cutting and cutting away until there is nothing left. They have the effrontery to think they can tell us what we need and dont need in the way of firearms. Who are they to tell the rest of us what we really need? If they dont want guns, if they dont want high-capacity magazines then they shouldnt buy them, but dont tell the rest of us what we need or dont need. Even my No. 1 fan, Mr. Chuck Weiler, says the gun grabbers are going too far and he is absolutely correct. Amazing! We agree on something. It is up to the individual gun owner to determine what he or she wants and needs, not the overbearing government. I only needed a two-shot Derringer to shoot the armed burglar that burst into my house many years ago but I only used that gun because it was closer than my others. So you gun grabbers, find another cause to babble about. How about outlawing knives? Would that have saved those Chinese school kids? Of course not, but they would have been known around the world if their killer had used a gun. Do the gun grabbers think the Chinese parents grieve less for their murdered children any less because they were stabbed rather than shot? I can tell you for a fact that the loss of a child is a pain that cannot be imagined by anyone except a parent who has seen their child killed. It has been nearly three decades since my son was killed but it really was only yesterday. The pain and the emptiness are always there, sitting in a huge hole in my heart. To grab all the guns is not the answer ... but it sure helps the liberals to disarm decent Americans. Harry Cooper Hernando No more gun laws A short time ago, I received an email, advising me our president is trying to make more gun laws trying to take our guns away from good citizens. It seems to me that our president, Congress and the House members dont know what theyre doing. They just think they can do whatever they want, even though its in our Constitution we have the right to keep and bear arms. Connecticut, a few days ago had a terrible, terrible incident in the killing of children in their classrooms by a boy that was not in his right mind. Our so-called leaders, some of which can hardly walk or do anything but sit in their offices, are so absent-minded they go along with whatever is brought up. Guns dont kill people, people kill people. They just cant understand that. Now, if a schools students take a test and use pencils, they make mistakes, why not do away with pencils, the kids are making too many mistakes with those pencils. On my next birthday, Ill be 67 years old. I retired 12 years ago after spending 30 years as a police officer. I joined the Navy when I was younger and spent time in Vietnam. I will be very angry if our president tells me to give up my guns. I am very careful with my guns. If Im not at or going to the shooting range, they are locked in a fireproof gun safe. Jake Little Homosassa Arming our schools Weapons of mass destruction is a government that has taken/confiscated all guns from its law abiding citizens, as in Germany with rise of Hitler and other countries, and we know how that ended. After Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, the emperor wanted to invade America, but the head of the military said, There is a gun behind every blade of grass, meaning America has hunters, gun owners and housewives owning guns for recreation and protection. Knowing this has saved America more than once from being invaded. The protection of children is a top priority in all civilized countries and we see it in Israel schools as most if not all teachers are well trained and have some type of gun to protect the children, and in a small town in Texas some teachers and staff have been trained and carry guns in school for protection and the parents have stated they feel their children are more protected. We see on the school doors signs (gun-free zone/no guns allowed). Does this stop anyone or even put in their minds they will be stopped? No. But if the sign states there is trained, armed personnel, do you really think even a mentally ill person would attempt do harm and/or be able to carry out such atrocities? If the young teacher when confronted by the shooter in her classroom had been trained and had a gun she could have ended the killings right then and there. Guns do not make us unsafe, but ignorance and being unarmed does. The police do a good job, but cannot always be there to protect us, and when called how long to respond. Seconds count when a life is at risk. We should be armed and when the bad guy just thinks we are, he will stop and think first prior to robbing, breaking into our homes, businesses or schools to do harm. It will never stop all gun violence, but it will give us an advantage and the bad guy to stop and contemplate his fate and known outcome. Don B. Powell Hernando Blood on their hands The weapon used in the Newtown murders was an AR-15 assault rifle that shoots four bullets per second, or 100 bullets per minute. It literally shoots like a machine gun. Its the same weapon used at the last three mass shootings. It was designed for the Armed Forces and needs to stay that way. This gun needs to be banned right now. It needs to be illegal at all secondary markets and private gun sales right now. The NRAs answer to end gun violence was a joke and insulting. Armed officers at our schools doesnt protect us at movie theaters, malls, anywhere the public gathers and where is the money going to come from to pay for the schools protection? When someone shoots an AR-15 at you, youre going down, its that simple. We are all sitting ducks waiting for the next mass shooting! Meanwhile, all the NRA really cares about is money lets not overlook how much money the NRA receives from gun manufacturers. ... Its so greedy its sick. The NRA really does have blood on their hands and its shameful. The fight is on for gun control and as a mother who doesnt want her children to face a crazy person with an assault weapon I say enough is enough. Our politicians need to do something and do it now! E.G. Yerian Homosassa Help the disaffected Following the horrific massacre of children at Sandy Hook Elementary, we hear and read earnestly held beliefs that the solution to school violence is the resuscitation of mandatory prayer in our public schools. But, in our pluralistic society, whose prayers and religious traditions do we bring into our schools and classrooms? How do we keep everyones right to pursue their relationship with their deity free from imposition of beliefs and dogma of the majority? And, how do we assure that parents rights to share with their children their religious culture are not trampled upon? I suspect there is no one simple solution that will cure whatever ills in our culture lead to such tragic, unthinkable events. But we can, and we must, fashion an array of efforts to deal with the disaffected and troubled in our society and to inculcate a reverence for the miracle of life to counter the culture of violence. In the end, Americans of all faiths share one common goal to never again see innocent children slaughtered. Elwood R. Harding Jr. Beverly Hills Learn from the loss According to the national institute of health statistics and the CDC, obesity has caused approximately 300,000 deaths per year in the USA, heart disease 599,413, cancer 567,628 and suicide 36,909. All preventable if we outlawed tobacco in all forms, sugar, fat and instituted mandatory exercise programs. Harsh? Maybe. However, add that to deaths by DUI and deaths by overdose on legal narcotics and the number of deaths caused by guns seem small in comparison. Yet, we are so quick to blame the guns! The shooter in the Newtown tragedy was by any account, mentally ill. His mother, who knew this, left guns easily accessible to him. She failed to protect him from himself and us from the horror he caused. As a nation, we fail to protect and treat the mentally ill. Onefourth of America is diagnosed with some form of mental illness. Many of these are children. National child abuse statistics report 3.3 million child abuse reports every year. Five children in this country die every day related to child abuse. How sad is that? Where is the public outcry for this? Yes, there are loopholes that can be closed to prevent unfortunate and senseless killings by the mentally ill, paroled convicted felons and the just plain mean. Licensed firearm dealers require background checks and mandatory waiting periods. Private gun sales must be stopped. Guns can be sold by them to anyone. We do not seem to be interested in treating the root causes of the evils that society suffers from the hand that rocks the cradle, steers the car, performs the tasks and yes, holds the gunsits us. The people. Go to church. Get back to god. Love each other. Protect the children. Respect life. Newtowns loss is our loss. Lets learn from it.

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 Second Amendment Kudos to C. R. McDermott, who wrote of the proliferation of guns in our country and in our county. On the day of the Newtown tragedy, the sticker on the front page of the Chronicle said Gun Show. Like McDermott, I observed the signs along U.S. 19 advertising the gun show. That evening, commentator Mark Shields said his time in the Marines instilled in him the knowledge that the purpose of a gun was to kill, nothing else. Shields remark resonated with me. When I was young, I was drawn to the shooting galleries at carnivals, probably impressed by the eye/hand coordination factor. But, like with Shields, the Army gave me a different perspective. Qualifying on a carbine or a rifle might have been just more eye/hand coordination, but there was something sinister about the 45. The weapon was unwieldy and unpleasant and the cardboard target left nothing to the imagination. Like McDermott, I dont own a gun, havent touched one since the Army 60 years ago; my children have never touched a weapon. The NRA is complaining the president wants to take away our Second Amendment rights. Its not so. No mortal would ever dare oppose the Second Amendment, which enjoys a special magic. It states, A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Our founding fathers are considered prescient. The structure of the government they crafted still works a couple of centuries later. But the Second Amendment was about muskets. The Founding Fathers werent sufficiently prescient to envision assault weapons. A well regulated militia is of course a good idea. Switzerland gave young men guns but the government kept the ammunition, to be used only during training. The NRA holds us to the words of the Constitution but maybe we can play that game. The Constitution states the people have the right to keep and bear arms, but it doesnt spell out the right to ammunition. It may be an approach we could take without trampling on the sacred Second Amendment. Mary B. Gregory Homosassa Dont abuse privilege I served my country to protect our freedom, not our failure. I strongly urge you to never vote to raise our nations debt limit without enacting fundamental spending cuts and management of Constitutional demands of essential spending needs. I, a plain old but accountable American citizen, am compelled to manage my fixed income and budget needs before wants. I suggest my executive and legislative leaders adhere to the same principles. I, and many, many, military servants since our nations inception, have provided you with the privilege of freedom. I suggest you use it wisely in your service as legislators to ensure that freedom is preserved and provided to our next generation. May God bless you, and the future of our America. Robert David Hummel Inverness E verything everyone loathes about Washington was present in the fiscal cliff bill just passed by Congress. It is 153 pages long; most members probably hadnt read all of it before voting on it; it was delivered in the middle of the night; it was loaded with pork the mothers milk (to mix a metaphor) of politicians and while the country is already swamped with massive debt, it contains massive giveaways to satisfy interest groups and campaign contributors. Did I mention the bill raises taxes on top of the coming Obamacare taxes, but does nothing nothing to address the debt problem? As with previous congresses, this one (again) delayed the debt issue for two months and will have to face it again, along with what to do about the debt ceiling. Only expletives that cant be printed in a family newspaper accurately characterize this bunch, so Ill have to settle for pathetic, unprincipled and irresponsible. This fiscal cliff was a construct created by Congress. The additional revenue from productive businesses and individuals earning more than $400,000 and couples making $450,000 wont put more than the tiniest dent in the deficit and do nothing about the $16 trillion debt. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the ratio of new taxes to spending cuts is 41 to 1. This assumes the cuts actually materialize, which is unlikely. If they do, they will merely be window dressing. Weve seen it all before. Democrats play this game more effectively than a nimble-handed magician. According to Americans for Tax Reform, in 1982, congressional Democrats promised President Reagan $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax hikes. Reagan agreed. He got the tax hikes immediately, but had his political pocket picked when Democrats never came through with the spending cuts. It was the same with President George H.W. read my lips, no new taxes Bush. In 1990, ... Bush agreed to $2 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax hikes. The tax hikes went through ... Not a single penny of the promised spending cuts actually happened. Democrats run this play so often you would think by now Republicans might have devised a better defense. But just like the smear that Republicans are antiwoman because they oppose spending tax dollars on free contraceptives and abortion, or lack compassion for the poor because they oppose increasing federal programs that dont actually help the poor become less so, Republicans get trapped into voting to increase taxes in exchange for more empty promises to cut spending ... eventually. And the country is the one that loses. Conservatives sent a large number of tea party members to the House in the 2010 election, hoping to fix government. It hasnt worked because the political culture there has been contaminated by an untreatable virus and even those with the best intentions soon acquire the infection. Eighty-five Republicans voted for the monstrous bill (151 stood on principle and voted against it) because their leaders said that if they didnt it would hurt the partys chances in the next election. Think of how the media would treat them. One didnt have to be in the room to hear what was said because its always the same. Give up your principles because the next election is paramount. And after the next election and the one after it, nothing changes. The country should make up its mind. Do we want a government that lives within the boundaries of the Constitution limited, financially stable and spending only on what the Constitution says it should or, do we want a nation whose initials should be changed to ATM, dispensing goodies to any and all without regard to the financial health and welfare of this and future generations? Passage of this bill seems to indicate the choice has been made and ATM has won. It is a sorry affair for which we, and future generations, will be sorry, indeed.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com.

You may disapprove of the easily available technology that lets people chat to distant friends from the table behind you at the restaurant, or allows drivers to text when theyre supposed to be paying attention to the road. But technology also has made it possible for the sun to shine on much of what elected officials and others transacting the publics business are up to, often in real time. Regularly scheduled meetings of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners and the Citrus County School Board are streamed live on the Internet and archived for later viewing, as are a selection of other public body meetings. On a larger scale, statewide task forces often open up free phone conference lines for members of the public to listen to meetings, and both houses of the Florida Legislature post and archive meeting and hearing videos online. Right around the corner, theres another public meeting available through free teleconferencing. Citrus Countys Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) focuses on long-range transportation and transportation capital improvement plans. On Wednesday, Jan. 9, the TPO will hear from its management consultant about the benefits of merging with another county to create a regional body with greater clout in attracting federal dollars for local transportation projects. The meeting will be a precursor to the in-person TPO meeting scheduled for the following day at the Inverness Government Center. If you cant get to the meetings of those doing the publics business, at least check to see if you can watch or listen while they are occurring. If that doesnt work with your schedule, access the archived audio or video recordings. The technology exists, so take advantage of it. As responsible citizens, we need to pay attention to those doing the publics business. Its part of holding our public officials accountable. THE ISSUE: Listen to the TPO conference call.OUR OPINION: Technology opens up citizen engagement in public business.

The same old rhetoric, with the same result more people buying more guns. A suggestion: Treat gun ownership like car ownership. 1. All guns must be registered (exclude antiques, black-powder reproductions, and those manufactured over 75 years ago). Register them by going to a police station or gun shop. There should be simple form and no fee. 2. If a gun is sold in Florida, the form must be updated; if out-of state, it must go through a transfer agent. 3. If you take a gun outside your home and its loaded, you must have a carry permit. Itll cost you $100 if you are caught (say in a traffic stop), $500 if it happens twice, and confiscation thereafter. 4. If you want a carry permit, you must demonstrate your ability to shoot a gun. You must competently load/unload the firearm, be familiar with the laws of Florida, and be able to shoot. Say, a minimum of 20 shots fired at a 2-foot circle at 15 feet for a pistol and 50 feet for a rifle attaining a score of 15 (15 shots within the circle with the other 5 must be within a 3-foot circle). A test (like a drivers written test) will be available if you dont want to take a course. Guns kept in the home must be registered, but their owners need not be if they never take them out of the home. Guns must be locked up at all times when not in the possession of their owner or a licensed person when outside of the home. A trigger lock or gun safe is what Im referring to. And, most important, a carry permit should be valid in all 50 states, just like drivers licenses. This will not end our nationwide problem; just get us a little closer to a reasonable solution. Drunks still drive cars. David Weiser Hernando Taxing gun ownersNational Rifle Association executive vicepresident Wayne La Pierre called on Congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. His outpouring was in response to the hue and cry following the Newtown, Conn. schoolhouse murder of 26 individuals, including 20 first-grade students. La Pierre is upset because, as a result of the terrorist using an assault rifle, many influential people across the country are calling for a ban of such weapons. However, in all likelihood a bill banning any kind gun will be hard to pass; maybe impossible, given that the NRA has lots and lots of money, which has been used for decades to elect a bunch of sitting congressmen. Bolstering security in every single school in this nation is costly, to say the least, and so are the cleanups post-massacre, not to mention the lawsuits that follow. So, instead of a ban on such as AR-15s, Congress could pass a law allowing the collection of perennial taxes and fees on each privately-owned gun, like states do with property taxes and vehicle license fees. Moreover, like with automobiles, Congress could mandate that gun owners carry insurance enough to cover the costs of future mass shootings, whether they occur within schools or without. Now, why do I think the above would reduce our nations private gun load? Because if I was an owner of an assortment of guns, the cost of keeping them would stick in my craw, and Id likely get rid of all but one of them, starting with the assault rifle. James McIntosh Lecanto Significant Judi Siegals article Jewish influences and Christmas was interesting and well researched. However, she, like most of the people in the world, missed the significance of Christmas. It is not the shopping at department stores, eating candy or ice cream, singing about a White Christmas, or watching a nice little movie about people developing a better relationship at Christmas. Christmas is significant because a loving God used His chosen people, the Jews, to send a Savior, His Son, into a lost and dying world. Yes, Jesus was a Jew but His sinless life, His death, burial, resurrection, ascension into Heaven, and His promised return for His church is the reason for Christmas. All these other items are nice but would be nothing but a wintertime festival without the fact that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah), promised by all the Old Testament (Jewish) prophets. W. Ray Kelley, Ed.D pastor, First Christian Church Inverness The numbers speak In 2012, this many kids died from 1. Starvation 15,000,000. 2. Car accidents 830,000. 3. Drowning 175,000. 4. Home accidents 2,800. 5. Cancer 2,300. 6. Abuse/neglect 1,500. 7. Gun accidents 500. 8. School shootings 23. Want to save children? Feed them. There is no need for stricter gun control, or more spending on school police security.Tom Restivo Inverness Stop complaining Solution for Citrus County; I wish everybody would just stop complaining about Sheriff Dawsy, the school board, the county commissioners. Ive lived in this county since 1996 and I have not seen anybody do their job as professional as the superintendent of schools, Sheriff Dawsy, the county commissioners. The problem is, all you people that moved down here have nothing better to do than complain. You sit home and thats all you do is complain, complain, complain. If you dont like the situation in Citrus County, I have the best solution for you: Pack your bags and move to where you came from. Leave our county alone.Working as a teamWhy do people assume when two or three sheriffs cars are parked with officers talking, that theyre goofing off? That is like an office boss who thinks employees are just gabbing in the hallway. It could be official business conversation. Perhaps the deputies are planning an operation. They could be talking over what they have seen that is important for enforcement or crime prevention. Even some socializing is good for the officers to get to know one another and work as a team. Some break time is reasonable for productive and happy employees. And incidentally, I think the helicopters one of the best tools the sheriffs office has for observation.Coal not radioactive This is (in) reference (to) the Sunday, Dec. 23, Sound Off labeled Radioactive. The person who called that in needs to remember that the cooling towers at the power plant are for the coal plants, not for the nuclear plant. There is no radioactivity in the steam coming out of the cooling towers for the coal plant. Sound OFF

Ice climb Associated Press Jason Chapman, left, Corey Hetrick and Eric Henderson, climb an ice-covered silo on a farm west of Cedar Falls, Iowa. Climbers have been scaling the silo, an idea started by University of Northern Iowa physical education instructor Don Briggs, each winter since 2001. Lone gray wolf still on the prowlFRESNO, Calif. After tracking him for a year, California wildlife officials said the lone gray wolf who migrated from Oregon likes to travel more than most. Since he took off from his pack in northeast Oregon the wolf has traveled more than 3,000 miles. Scientists call him OR-7 because he was the seventh wolf in Oregon to be outfitted with a GPS tracking collar. Its why wildlife officials have been able to keep up with him as he follows migrating deer around the northeastern corner of the California. Scientists said he might be looking for a new pack or a mate. Karen Kovacs, a state wildlife program manager, said the chances of him finding either are slim. Most gray wolves stay within 100 miles of where they were born. Town said pigs in home must go ESSEX, Vt. A Vermont woman considers her pigs to be pets, but town officials said theyre farm animals and have no business living in a residential neighborhood. The zoning board in Essex has given Florence Gruber and Alan Tsefrekas until Jan. 22 to remove an estimated 30 to 40 miniature potbellied pigs from their home. Gruber told the board Thursday that her pigs use litter boxes and that the adult animals weigh 50 to 100 pounds. Shes given them names like Larry, Nadia, Olive and Snow White Sleepy Girl. The Burlington Free Press reported neighbors told the board the pigs must go. Gruber said the pigs are up for adoption. Condo fire kills two, injures fourCHELMSFORD, Mass. A fast-moving fire tore through a northeastern Massachusetts condominium building, killing a couple in their late 60s or early 70s and injuring four of their relatives, including a 7-year-old boy who suffered serious burns, state Fire Marshal Stephen Coan said Sunday. The fire in Chelmsford began at about 11 p.m. Saturday. Coan said he believes the fire started accidentally in the couples home on the top floor of the four-story building, one of several in the complex. The victims names havent been released. Coan said the man who died used a wheelchair, which impeded efforts to get him out of the condo. Fire officials said two adults and two children related to the couple were visiting them when the fire began. The boy was flown by helicopter to a Boston hospital to be treated for serious burns, while the others were taken to local hospitals. The boys condition wasnt available Sunday. Coan said firefighters rescued several other residents of the top floor from their balconies.

Disease kills five babies in Mexico YAJALON, Mexico Authorities in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas said a bacterial disease has killed five babies and sickened 41 others in a remote indigenous community that is experiencing a wave of intense cold and rains. Chiapas health department said Sunday in a statement that residents of Emiliano Zapata in the municipality of Yajalon have been urged to stay in their homes and avoid contact with others to prevent the spread of the bacteria that is causing the infection, which is characterized by coughing and fever. Authorities are looking into whether it is whooping cough. Local officials said residents lack access to health care because of the remoteness and marginalization of their mountain community, and poor weather conditions have facilitated the spread of the disease. The statement said health officials have confirmed the death of five babies and the sickening of 41 infants younger than 1 year old. Cameron wants to stay PM until 2020 LONDON David Cameron said he wants to stay on as British prime minister until 2020, calling his agenda of reforms enough to keep him busy through another term. The prime ministers remarks to the Sunday Telegraph newspaper come a day before he and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg publish a midterm review of how their coalition government, formed in 2010, has fared. Relations between Camerons Conservative Party and Cleggs Liberal Democrats have become strained over disagreements on austerity measures, political reforms and other matters. Calling his enormous reform agenda enough to keep us all busy, Cameron said he wants to fight the next election, win the next election and serve. Britains next general election is scheduled for 2015. Twitter insult brings 2-year sentence KUWAIT CITY Kuwaiti media said a social media activist has been sentenced to two years in prison for a Twitter post deemed insulting to the Gulf nations ruler. Authorities across the Western-allied Gulf Arab states have sharply increased crackdowns on perceived dissent among bloggers and others using social media. The sentence passed Sunday in Kuwait is not the harshest in region, but is likely to bring further denunciations from international rights groups. Several websites, including the pro-government Al-Watan newspaper, reported the sentence against 26-year-old Rashed al-Enezi, who was accused of insulting Kuwaits emir in a Twitter post. World BRIEFS From wire reports President Obamas second inauguration not as exciting as first Associated PressWASHINGTON Four years and one re-election after Barack Obama became Americas first black president, some of the thrill is gone. Yes, the inauguration of a U.S. president is still a big deal. But the ceremony Washington will stage in a few weeks wont be the heady, historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the National Mall to see Obama take the oath of office. This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obamas public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, Jan. 21. There certainly will not be the sort of exultation you saw four years ago, said Mike Cornfield, a George Washington University political science professor. One reason why, Cornfield said, is it simply lacks the dramatic transfer of power from one president to the next. This is not a change that commands peoples interest automatically, Cornfield said. Its a confirmation of power. Even Obama acknowledges hes already, shall we say, a little washed-up the second time around. I think that a lot of folks feel that, Well, hes now president. Hes a little grayer. Hes a little older. Its not quite as new as it was, the president often told supporters while campaigning for re-election. His inaugural committee has scaled back to three days of festivities, instead of four. Some changes are on account of the slowly recovering economy and a desire by planners to ease the security burden on law enforcement. But they also reflect a realization that the thrill for Obamas second inauguration burns a little weaker. There are only two official inaugural balls this year, both at the Washington Convention Center, rather than 10 official balls at multiple locations around town. There will be a parade, but its expected to be smaller, too; about 130 groups and 15,000 people marched down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House in 2009. Associated PressCAIRO Egypts minority Christians were celebrating their first Christmas after the election of an Islamist president and a new pope and following adoption of a constitution many argue has an Islamist slant. Christians gathered in Cairos main cathedral Sunday for Midnight Mass on the eve of Orthodox Christmas led by their new pope. Pope Tawadros II was elected in November to replace longtime Pope Shenouda III, who died in March after 40 years as the leader of the church. Islamist President Mohammed Morsi called Tawadros with Christmas greetings and sent one of his aides to the Christmas Mass. Concerned for their future and their ancient heritage in Egypt, some Copts are reportedly considering leaving the country. As Egypt struggles with the role of religion in society, many Copts are aligning themselves with moderate Muslims and secular Egyptians who also fear the rise of Islamic power. Amir Ramzy, a Coptic Christian and a judge in Cairos court of appeals, said Christmas is a chance to retreat and pray for a better Egypt. Christians are approaching Christmas with disappointment, grief and complaints, fearing not only their problems but Egypts situation in general, Ramzy said. During the reign of (ousted President Hosni) Mubarak and the (military rulers), mainly Christians were facing problems, but now with the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, each and every moderate Egyptian is facing problems. In one of his first public messages after his enthronement, Tawadros said the ouster of Mubarak opened the way for a larger Coptic public role, encouraging them to participate in the nations evolving democracy. Egypts Coptic Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Egypts 85 million people, have long complained of discrimination by the state and the countrys Muslim majority. Clashes with Muslims have occasionally broken out, sparked by church construction, land disputes or Muslim-Christian love affairs. Following the ouster of Mubarak in 2011, sectarian violence rose, and attacks on churches sent thousands of Coptic protesters into the streets. A protest in October 2011 was violently quelled by the countrys military rulers, leaving 26 people dead and sparking further outrage. Ereny Rizk, 34, whose brother George died in that incident, said it was the second Christmas without him, but that the election of a new pope has raised her spirits. Associated Press Pope Tawadros II, the 118th pope of the Coptic Church of Egypt, leads a midnight Mass late Sunday on the eve of Orthodox Christmas at St. Marks Cathedral in Cairo, Egypt. Egyptian Copts celebrate Christmas Fearing future, many align with moderate Muslims Associated PressMIDDLETOWN, N.J. While superstorm Sandy did highly visible damage to homes, boardwalks and roads, it also walloped the Northeastern fishing industry, whose workers are hoping for a small piece of any future disaster assistance that Congress might approve. The storm did millions of dollars worth of damage to docks, fish processing plants and restaurants. But it also caused millions more in lost wages to boat employees who couldnt work for two to three weeks, to truck drivers who had nothing to transport, and to other assorted industries that service commercial fishing. The $9.7 billion measure to fund the National Flood Insurance program, passed by Congress on Friday, did not include anything for the fishing industry; a bill the Senate passed in December would have allocated $150 million for that purpose. Some of the worst damage to fisheries in the region occurred at the Belford Seafood Cooperative on the Raritan Bay shoreline in Middletown, where the pounding waves destroyed a 75-foot-long dock, gutted a popular restaurant, and ripped away all five garage doors and parts of the exterior of office and storage buildings. The co-ops manager, Joe Branin, estimates the damage at close to $1 million. We went three weeks before we were able to pack a fish, said Branin, whose business was still without electricity in mid-December. We lost almost all our equipment. It was three weeks before anybody could do anything. Fishermen hope for help with storm losses The thrill is gone Associated Press The Belford fishing port, in Middletown, N.J., sustained nearly $1 million in damages dfrom superstorm Sandy, some of which its owners hope to recoup through federal storm aid.

Certainly, No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama would have to play nothing less than a classic to live up to all the hype for Monday nights BCS championship. Before either team stepped on the field in balmy South Florida, this was shaping up as one of the most anticipated games in years, a throwback to the era when Keith Jackson & Co. called one game a week, when it was a big deal for teams from different parts of the country to meet in a bowl game, when everyone took sides based on where they happened to live. North vs. South. Rockne vs. Bear. Rudy vs. Forrest Gump. The Fighting Irish vs. the Crimson Tide. College footballs two most storied programs, glorified in movie and song, facing off for the biggest prize. Its definitely not any other game, said Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley. For the Crimson Tide (12-1), this is a chance to be remembered as a full-fledged dynasty. Alabama will be trying to claim its third national championship in four years and become the first school to win back-toback BCS titles, a remarkable achievement given the ever-increasing parity of the college game and having to replace five players from last years title team who were picked in the first two rounds of the NFL draft. To be honest, I think this team has kind of exceeded expectations, coach Nick Saban said Sunday. If you look at all the players we lost last year, the leadership that we lost ...

After 16 hours of tense talks, the NHL and its players finally achieved their elusive deal early Sunday morning, finding a way to restart a sport desperate to regain momentum and boost its prominence. Ending a bitter dispute that wiped out a large part of the hockey season for the third time in less than two decades, the league and its union agreed to the framework of a 10-year labor contract that will allow a delayed schedule to start later this month. On the 113th day of a management lockout and five days before the leagues deadline for a deal, the bleary-eyed sides held a 6 a.m. news conference to announce there will be a season, after all. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and union head Donald Fehr both appeared drained, wearing sweaters and not neckties, when they stood side by side at the hotel and announced labor peace.

They are also 4-1 in District 6A-6, the only loss a 56-46 setback at West Port Dec. 11. West Port remains unbeaten at 4-0 in district play, with Brooksville Central in third at 2-2. Bottom line: The winner of Fridays game will be the top seed in the 6A-6 tournament. One of Citrus greatest strengths is its ability to create offense with its pressure defense. The Wolf Pack, however, have proven adept at handling pressure, so expect the Canes to change up and use it sparingly.

B2 M ONDAY, J ANUARY7, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE B ASKETBALL lane and dishing passes to Shenelle Toxen, Treleasha Simmons, Micah Jenkins and Lindsay Connors. Citrus which beat Lecanto Dec. 18, making it 5-0 against county foes versus West Port is the premiere girls game this week, but there are others that may be equally important. Crystal River has stumbled into the seasons second half. The Pirates were in a position to take command of 5A-7 when it hosted Dunnellon last Friday, a team they had beaten 52-49 on Nov. 27 at Dunnellon. It seemed Crystal River would prevail, leading by 15 with just over a minute left in the third quarter and by a dozen going into the fourth. But the Pirates were embarrassed, allowing the resilient Tigers whose offense was supplied almost solely by Tanika Jacksons 43 points to finish with a 26-6 fourth-quarter run that gave them a 59-51 triumph. That left a three-way tie for first in 5A-7, with the Pirates, Dunnellon and Tavares all 4-2 and Brooksville Nature Coast one game back at 3-3. Crystal Rivers failure to assert itself in a major conference game revealed a weakness in the Pirates play. The 3point shooting by Katelyn Hannigan and Megan Wells, a major part in getting good looks near the basket for Jasmyne Eason, was ineffective, and the defensive efforts aimed at just stopping Jackson failed miserably. These issues must be addressed, and quickly. Crystal River hosts Lecanto in a nonconference match Monday, then goes on the road for a game at 5A-7 rival Eustis on Tuesday. The latter could be dangerous; remember, the Pirates were ambushed in a district road game at Nature Coast 44-33 Dec. 4. Crystal River also hosts Nature Coast on Friday, which means this could be a definitive week for the Pirates. The nondistrict game between a stumbling Crystal River and Lecanto, which seems to have recovered from a midseason crisis with two big victories in the Holiday Tournament over North Marion and Gibbs, will be interesting. The Panthers raised their overall record to 6-11. Playing without two senior starters who have left the team, Lecanto is adjusting and it showed, particularly against Gibbs, which entered the Holiday Tournament with a 9-5 record. The Panthers trailed by 11 entering the fourth quarter, but outscored the Gladiators 20-6 for a 46-43 triumph. The only senior starter remaining for Lecanto is Marie Buckley, which means coach Brittany Szunko must get her young team to produce for four quarters the way it did in the final quarter against Gibbs. The Panthers are out of the regular-season title race in 6A-6 with a 1-4 mark, but that doesnt leave them out of district tournament contention. There is potential, if it can be harvested. Seven Rivers Christian has a busy week with four games, but the most important is the first, at 2A-3 foe Gainesville Cornerstone Academy Tuesday. It shouldnt be that difficult for the Warriors; Cornerstone lost to Leesburg First Academy a team Seven Rivers beat 49-3. Then again, Seven Rivers has lost three of its last four, suffering a 68-42 defeat against Ocala St. John, the top contender for the title in 2A-3. Should Warriors coach Gary Dreyer get his team functioning to take advantage of their greatest attributes (read inside game with the Zachar sisters), they could be, and should be, dangerous.

A person familiar with Clevelands coaching search said the team is no longer considering Kelly for its coaching vacancy after the offensive mastermind nearly reached an agreement with the Browns on Friday. The 49-year-old Kelly was indecisive about making the leap to the NFL and the team decided to move on to other candidates, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because of the sensitivity of the search. Eagles interview McCoy in Denver PHILADELPHIA The Philadelphia Eagles took their coaching search to Denver to interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Sunday after a lengthy meeting with Oregon coach Chip Kelly a night earlier in Arizona. The Eagles only confirmed their meeting with Kelly after it ended. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, general manager Howie Roseman and team president Don Smolenski left Arizona for Denver on Sunday to continue the search to replace Andy Reid, who was fired after 14 seasons. They met with McCoy for a few hours and then headed back to Philadelphia. The Eagles plan to interview Indianapolis offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley this week. Sources: Marrone to take over Bills ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Doug Marrone is set to try to turn around an NFL team after improving a college program down the road. Marrone reached an agreement to become the Buffalo Bills new coach Sunday, three people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. One person said the sides were still putting the finishing touches on the contract for Marrone to sign. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because there has not been an official announcement. Marrone will replace Chan Gailey, who was fired Dec. 31, a day after the Bills closed their second consecutive season with a 6-10 record and extended the NFLs longest active playoff drought to 13 seasons. The 48-year-old Marrone, who is from the Bronx, went 25-25 in four seasons at Syracuse.

S PORTSC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ANUARY7, 2013 B3 Associated Press PGA tour photographer Stan Badz shoots the flag on the 11th green Sunday as it tilts in the wind before the first round at the Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii. a lot of work to be done, but the basic framework of the deal has been agreed upon. Lawyers will spend the next few days drafting a memorandum of agreement. The stoppage led to the cancellation of at least 480 games the exact length of the curtailed schedule hasnt been determined bringing the total of lost regular-season games to a minimum 2,178 during three lockouts under Bettman. The agreement, which replaces the deal that expired Sept. 15, must be ratified by the 30 team owners and approximately 740 players. Hopefully, within just a very few days, the fans can get back to watching people who are skating, and not the two of us, Fehr said. Fehr became executive director of the NHL Players Association in December 2010 after leading baseball players through two strikes and a lockout. Players conceded early on in talks, which began in June, that they would accept a smaller percentage of revenue, and the negotiations were about how much lower. It was a battle, said Winnipeg Jets defenseman Ron Hainsey, a key member of the unions bargaining team. Players obviously would rather not have been here, but our focus now is to give the fans whatever it is 48 games, 50 games the most exciting season we can. With much of the money from its $2 billion, 10-year contract with NBC back loaded toward the Stanley Cup playoffs in the spring and now perhaps early summer the league preferred to time the dispute for the start of the season in the fall. Management made its decision knowing regularseason attendance rose from 16,534 in 2003-04 to 16,954 in 2005-06 and only seven teams experienced substantial drops. The lockout could wipe out perhaps $1 billion in revenue this season, given about 40 percent of the regular-season schedule wont be played. And while the stoppage was major news in Canada, it was an afterthought for many American sports fans. At downtown Detroits Rub BBQ Pub, manager Chris Eid said he was ecstatic when he heard the news. He said the settlement was a big topic of conversation among his afternoon customers. Everyone misses hockey, Eid said. Hockeys first labor dispute was an 11-day strike in 1992 that led to 30 games being postponed. Bettman, a former NBA executive under David Stern, became the NHL commissioner in February 1993. He presided over a 103-day lockout in 1994-95 that ended with a deal on Jan. 11, then a 301day lockout in 2004-05 that made the NHL the first major North American professional sports league to lose an entire season. The NHL obtained a salary cap in the agreement that followed that dispute and now wanted more gains. It was concessionary bargaining right from the beginning, Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan said. As the players, you kind of understand that and you accepted that. As much as you didnt want to, we understand that the nature of professional sports has kind of changed with the last couple CBAs starting with football and basketball. This deal was reached with the assistance of Scot Beckenbaugh of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, a veteran of the 2004-05 NHL talks, then Major League Soccers negotiations in 2010 and NFL and NBA talks the following year. Beckenbaugh spent Friday walking back and forth between the leagues office and the hotel where players were staying, meeting with each side to set up the final talks. The NHLs revenue of $3.3 billion last season lagged well behind the NFL ($9 billion), Major League Baseball ($7.5 billion) and the NBA ($5 billion), and the deal will lower the hockey players percentage from 57 to 50 owners originally had proposed 46 percent. This was the third lockout among the major U.S. sports in a period of just over a year. A four-month NFL lockout ended in July 2011 with the loss of only one exhibition game, and an NBA lockout caused each teams schedule to be cut from 82 games to 66 last season. As part of the deal: Players will receive $300 million in transition payments over three years to account for existing contracts, pushing their revenue share over 50 percent at the start of the deal. Players gained a defined benefit pension plan for the first time. The salary cap for this season will be $70.2 million before prorating to adjust for the shortened season, and the cap will drop to $64.3 million in 2013-14 the same amount as 2011-12. There will be a salary floor of $44 million in those years. Free agents will be limited to contracts of seven years (eight for those re-signed with their former club). Salaries within a contract may not vary by more than 35 percent year to year, and the lowest year must be at least 50 percent of the highest year. There were no changes to eligibility for free agency and salary arbitration. The threshold for teams to release players in salary arbitration will increase from $1.75 million to $3 million. Each team may use two buyouts to terminate contracts before the 2013-14 or 2014-15 seasons for twothirds of the remaining guaranteed income. The buyout will be included in the players revenue share but not the salary cap. The minimum salary will remain at $525,000 this season and will rise to $750,000 by 2021-12. Either side may terminate the deal after the 201920 season. Revenue sharing will increase to $200 million annually and rise with revenue. An industry growth fund of $60 million will be funded by the sides over three years and replenished as need. Participation of NHL and its players in the 2014 Sochi Olympics will be determined later in discussions also involving the International Olympic Committee and the International Ice Hockey Federation. Associated PressKAPALUA, Hawaii On the third attempt at starting the PGA Tour season, Matt Kuchar stepped to the 10th tee at Kapalua and could barely hear his name through the wind. When he finally steadied himself, a gust blew his golf ball off the tee. And then it happened again. We had a powwow and took us five or six minutes to laugh it off and say, Were really going to go through with this? Kuchar said. Made the best of it. But not for long. Just more than one hour after the Tournament of Champions finally got under way, it was scrapped again with all the scores erased. Most golf tournaments end on Sunday. This one couldnt even get started Sunday. The wind came roaring down the Plantation Course at Kapalua again, and it left officials no choice but to stop play and try to start again. With more manageable wind in the forecast, the plan was to play 36 holes Monday and finish with 18 holes Tuesday. That was good news for Ben Curtis. He had birdie putts on the first two holes and was 5-over par. Its crazy. Thats the only way to describe it, Curtis said. Ive never hit two greens in regulation at the start and walked away at 5 over. But hey. At least we had to try. And they will try again. Rickie Fowler will hit the opening tee shot of the 2013 season on Monday for the third time this week. For those wondering why this tournament keeps getting postponed, an hour of television Sunday was all the evidence they needed. Ian Poulter posed over his 4-iron shot to the 13th green and was so stunned to see it come up short that he looked at his small gallery for the longest time, repeating loud enough for them to hear that he was only 138 yards from the front of the green. Off to his right, Charlie Beljan had a search party stomping through high grass to the right of the 10th fairway looking for both his tee shots. He had a 15-foot putt for triple bogey when play was stopped. Moments later, a call came over the radio for a ruling on the 12th green. Scott Stallings was trying to tap in a 2-foot putt when a gust blew his ball 8 feet away. We need to try to put the show on, Poulter said. Hyundai spent a lot of money. We want to play. Fans want to see us play. TV wants to see us play. Were backed into a corner. I dont think they understand how windy it really is. Now theyve seen it. It was comical from the start, with Kuchar having to tee it up three times before he could hit, and removing his cap the rest of the way. Jonas Blixt had a 1-foot par putt on the 10th hole and took about two minutes. He had to wait as a cup and someones hat blew across the green. Blixt has played 10 holes over two days in these conditions in 1-under par. None of it counts, but the Swede learned one thing. Theres no instruction book for this, Blixt said. You just go by instincts. The Tournament of Champions was supposed to finish on Monday, the day it now hopes to start. The tour insists on a 54-hole tournament, no matter how complicated that will be with the next tournament, the Sony Open, starting on Thursday in Honolulu. Andy Pazder, the tours chief of operations, said television and operational equipment can only be transported to Oahu on a barge that takes 16 hours on a good day. Defending champion Steve Stricker lounged on a sofa in the dining room watching the NFL playoffs with Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker. Along with Bubba Watson, they have yet to tee off all week. Fowler made it through eight holes Friday and five holes Sunday. But what a wild hour of golf that turned out to be. It seems like the first day was a cake walk compared to today, Webb Simpson said. But you know, theyre trying to get us to play some golf. Matt and I were hanging in there, and it was fun. But you dont want to see stupid things happen. I think that was what they were starting to see. Carl Pettersson began his round by hitting his tee shot into the native grass for a lost ball and a triple bogey. Kyle Stanley had 88 yards to the 10th green and went with a punch 9-iron that sailed over the green. Curtis felt hopeless from the start. After a four-putt double bogey, he hit the green on the par-3 11th. Were walking halfway down and my caddie said, Hey, your ball is moving. And it rolled about another 5 feet, Curtis said. Before he had a chance to putt, a gust blew the ball to the left some more and went down a slope. He chipped up to about 15 feet and fourputted again. Poulter had to back off six times on a 10-foot birdie putt at the 11th hole. Two holes later, he had hit a beauty of a 4-iron, starting out to the right as the wind brought back toward the flag and it landed short. Thats not golf, Poulter said. I dont know what that is. You saw it. You cant pull a trigger. Youre taking 20 practice swings because you cant stand up. I guess what weve done is shown everyone its unplayable. In some respect, at least we hit a couple of shots. Three days of sitting in the hotel is not good. At least Ive warmed up for something. Im just not sure what Ive warmed up for.

NHL Continued from Page B1 Associated Press Andy Murray of Britain holds the winners trophy Sunday after winning the mens final match against Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6, 6-4 during the Brisbane International tennis tournament in Brisbane, Australia. Associated PressBRISBANE, Australia Andy Murray kicked off 2013 with a successful defense of his Brisbane International title, holding off Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov 7-6 (0), 6-4 on Sunday. The 21-year-old Dimitrov raced to a 4-1 lead in his first ATP World Tour final, but lost his nerve and was broken when serving for the set at 5-3. After getting back on serve, No. 3-ranked Murray saved a set point with an ace and forced a tiebreaker, which he dominated. In the second, Murray drilled a backhand into the net to give up a service break and a 4-3 lead to Dimitrov. He raised his game immediately to break back in a three-game roll, getting quick points from a backhand passing shot and a stunning return to set up a break point and a tying backhand winner down the line. Murray held at love for a 5-4 lead in a service game that lasted 56 seconds and then broke Dimitrov again to finish it off in 1 1/2 hours. Tipsarevic beats BautistaAgut to win Chennai Open CHENNAI, India Second-seeded Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia won the Chennai Open title Sunday by beating Roberto BautistaAgut of Spain 3-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the final. The ninth-ranked Tipsarevic won his fourth ATP title against an opponent who was playing in his first tour final. It was the Spaniard, though, who had the better start, winning the first three games. Tipsarevic, who lost to Milos Raonic in last years final, dominated the second set and then broke early in the third. Bautista-Agut seemed to struggle with a leg injury and needed on-court treatment during the second set. Stephens beats Robson at Hobart InternationalHOBART, Australia American Sloane Stephens broke Laura Robsons service in the opening game and went on to beat the British player 6-4, 7-6 (4) in the first round of the Hobart International on Sunday. Stephens, seeded eighth, was coming off a quarterfinal loss to eventual champion Serena Williams in the Brisbane International. In the only other first-round match Sunday at the Domain Tennis Centre, Olga Govortsova of Belarus beat fifth-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 6-2, 6-1. Wozniacki easy winner to open Sydney InternationalSYDNEY Caroline Wozniacki beat Polands Urszula Radwanska 6-1, 6-2 in hot conditions Sunday in the first round of the Sydney International. The seventh-seeded Wozniacki needed just 26 minutes to win the first set with boyfriend and top-ranked golfer Rory McIlroy watching at Sydney Olympic Park. Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia beat 2011 Wimbledon champion and fifthseeded Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic 6-1, 6-1. Maria Kirilenko beat Australian wild-card entry Olivia Rogowska 7-5, 6-2.

The win delays star linebacker Lewis retirement for at least another week as Baltimore (11-6) heads to top-seeded Denver (13-3) next Saturday. The Broncos beat the Ravens 34-17 three weeks ago. I wanted Denver, Boldin said, because they beat us. Well make it different. And he wanted the Broncos because it prolongs the Ravens pursuit of their first NFL title since the 2000 season, when Lewis won the first of two Defensive Player of the Year awards. I came to Baltimore to win a championship, Boldin added. We all did. Lewis, who made 13 tackles Sunday, ended his last home game in Baltimore at fullback, of all things, for the final kneel-down. He then went into a short version of his trademark dance before being mobbed by teammates. He followed with a victory lap, his right arm, covered by a brace, held high in salute to the fans after playing for the first time since tearing his right triceps on Oct. 14 against Dallas. My only focus was to come in and get my team a win. Nothing else was planned, the 37-year-old Lewis said. Its one of those things, when you recap it all and try to say what is one of your greatest moments. I knew how it started, but I never knew how it would end here in Baltimore. To go the way it did today, I wouldnt change nothing. He would like nothing more than to change past results against Manning, who was 2-0 in the postseason against Baltimore while with the Colts. The loss ended the Colts turnaround season in which they went from 2-14 to the playoffs in coach Chuck Paganos first year in Indianapolis (11-6). Pagano missed 12 weeks while undergoing treatment for leukemia and returned last week. He was upbeat following the defeat to the team he served as an assistant coach for four years. The foundation is set, and we said we were going to build one on rock and not on sand, Pagano said. You weather storms like this and you learn from times like this. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who went 9-3 as interim coach, was absent Sunday after being hospitalized with an undisclosed illness. Pagano said Arians is fine and would stay overnight for observation before rejoining the Colts on Monday. Quarterback coach Clyde Christensen called the plays, but Baltimores suddenly revitalized defense inspired by Lewis pending retirement, no doubt never let standout rookie QB Luck get comfortable. Its great making the playoffs, but you cant make mistakes and expect to beat a playoff team like we did, said Luck, who was sacked three times, Paul Kruger getting 2 1/2 of those. Well have to look back at those and hopefully fix them. Sundays victory enhanced the Ravens success rate in opening playoff games. Flacco now has won at least one postseason game in all five of his pro seasons, the only quarterback to do it in the Super Bowl era. His main target Sunday was Boldin, who had receptions of 50 and 46 yards, plus his 18-yard TD on a floater from Flacco in the corner of the end zone with 9:14 to go. I told (Flacco) before the game I was going to get 200 yards, Boldin said with a chuckle. Baltimore overcame the first two lost fumbles of the season by Ray Rice, too, as John Harbaugh became the only head coach in the Super Bowl era with wins in his first five playoff campaigns. Backup halfback Bernard Pierce rescued Rice with a 43-yard burst that led to Boldins touchdown, and ran for 103 yards. Flacco also connected with Dennis Pitta for a 20-yard TD and rookie Justin Tucker made a 23-yard field goal. Indys only points came on three field goals by Adam Vinatieri, from 47, 52 and 26 yards. Luck completed 28 of 54 passes for 288 yards. It was the most attempts by a rookie in a playoff game. (12-5) the lead. On Washingtons next series, Griffin reinjured the right knee he sprained about a month ago while trying to field a bad shotgun snap. The knee buckled badly, and the Seahawks recovered the fumble and kicked an insurance field goal. Kirk Cousins replaced Griffin, but Washington (107) was unable to come back. RG3 threw two 4-yard touchdown passes in his first career playoff game to give the Redskins a 14-0 lead before the Seahawks closed to 14-13 through three quarters. Griffin capped the Redskins only two drives of the first quarter against the NFL s top-rated scoring defense with short tosses to running back Evan Royster and tight end Logan Paulsen. The Seahawks allowed 15.3 points per game this season and the 14-point deficit was their largest of the season. The second quarter belonged to Seattle, with Wilson throwing a 4-yard TD pass to running back Michael Robinson and Steve Hauschka kicking a pair of field goals. Hauschkas 32-yard field goal 2:55 into the second quarter made in 14-3 and his second kick, a 29-yarder as the half expired, pulled the Seahawks with a point. The right-footed Hauschska was playing with a left ankle injury and limped off the field to the locker room. Seattle maintained its offensive efficiency starting the third quarter, driving 69 yards to the Redskins 1, but Lynch fumbled and Washingtons Jarvis Jenkins recovered. After forcing a Redskins punt, Wilson moved the Seahawks to the Washington 28, but overthrew Doug Baldwin in the end zone. Wilson was sacked on the next play, moving the ball back to the 37. With Hauschka limited, Seattle punted. Griffin was 10 of 17 for 84 yards, but after the first quarter he threw for only 16 yards plus an interception. He also ran three times for 12 yards. On the Redskins second drive of the game, the Redskins sensational rookie fell awkwardly while backpedalingon a pass and came up limping. But he stayed in the game. He sprained his right knee in Week 14 and sported a brace for the third straight game. Lynch rushed 14 times for 79 yards in the first half, including 41 on the drive which ended with his fumble. In the second quarter, he scooped up a Wilson fumble and raced for 19 yards, leading to the Seahawks touchdown. Rookie Alfred Morris, the leagues second-leading rusher, had 72 yards 34 of them on four carries during Washingtons opening drive that resulted in the TD pass to Royster. Paulsens touchdown catch finished off an 11-play, 54-yard drive in 5:58. Washingtons offense slowed in the second quarter, with two drives resulting in a punt and an interception by Seattle Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas. Seattle was moving the ball in the first quarter, but a promising drive ended when the Redskins Stephen Bowen and London Fletcher combined to sack Wilson on third-and-2. It was one of two sacks for the Redskins in the quarter. The playoff meeting between the two teams was the third, but first outside Seattle. The Seahawks won 20-10 in January 2006, and 35-14 in January 2008. Those were the last two postseason games played by the Redskins, who entered the playoffs on an NFC-best seven-game winning streak. Seattle came into the playoffs with a five-game winning streak, outscoring opponents 193-60. But they were 3-5 on the road and had lost eight straight road playoff games. Their only road playoff win came in their first postseason road game, Dec. 31, 1983, at Miami. Now they have another. RAVENSContinued from Page B1 SEAHAWKSContinued from Page B1

BCS NATIONALC HAMPIONSHIP C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ANUARY7, 2013 B5 That said, its not a huge surprise to find Alabama playing for another title. Thats not the case when it comes to Notre Dame. Despite their impressive legacy, the Fighting Irish (12-0) werent even ranked at the start of the season. But overtime wins against Stanford and Pittsburgh, combined with three other victories by a touchdown or less, gave Notre Dame a shot at its first national title since 1988. After so many lost years, the golden dome has reclaimed its luster in coach Brian Kellys third season. It starts with setting a clear goal for the program, Kelly said. Really, what is it? Are we here to get to a bowl game, or are we here to win national championships? So the charge immediately was to play for championships and win a national championship. Both Notre Dame and Alabama have won eight Associated Press national titles, more than any other school. They are the bluest of the blue bloods, the programs that have long set the bar for everyone else even while enduring some droughts along the way. ESPN executives were hopeful of getting the highest ratings of the BCS era. Tickets were certainly at a premium, with a seat in one of the executive suites going for a staggering $60,000 on StubHub the day before the game, and even a less-thanprime spot in the corner of the upper deck requiring a payout of more than $900. This is, to me, the ultimate match-up in college football, said Brent Musberger, the lead announcer for ESPN. Kelly molded Notre Dame using largely the same formula that has worked so well for Saban in Tuscaloosa: a bruising running game and a stout defense, led by Heisman Trophy finalist Manti Teo. Its a little bit old fashioned in the sense that this is about the big fellows up front, Kelly said. Its not about the crazy receiving numbers or passing yards or rushing yards. This is about the big fellas, and this game will unquestionably be decided up front. While points figure to be at a premium given the quality of both defenses, Alabama appears to have a clear edge on offense. The Tide has the nations highest-rated passer (AJ McCarron), two 1,000-yard rushers (Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon), a dynamic freshman receiver (Amari Cooper), and three linemen who made the AP All-America team (first-teamers Barrett Jones and Chance Warmack, plus second-teamer D.J. Fluker). Thats football at its finest, said Teo, who heads a defense that has given up just two rushing touchdowns. Its going to be a great challenge, and a challenge that we look forward to. The Crimson Tide had gone 15 years without a national title when Saban arrived in 2007, the schools fifth coach in less than a decade (including one, Mike Price, who didnt even made it to his first game in Tuscaloosa). Finally, Alabama got it right. In 2008, Saban landed one of the greatest recruiting classes in school history, a group that has already produced eight NFL draft picks and likely will send at least three more players to the pros (including Jones). The following year, the coach guided Alabama to a perfect season, beating Texas in the title game at Pasadena. Last season, the Tide fortuitously got a shot at another BCS crown despite losing to LSU during the regular season and failing to even win its division in the Southeastern Conference. In a rematch against the Tigers, Alabama romped to a 21-0 victory at the Superdome. The all-SEC matchup gave the league an unprecedented six straight national champions, hastening the end of the BCS. It will last one more season before giving way to a four-team playoff in 2014, an arrangement that was undoubtedly pushed along by one conference hoarding all the titles under the current system. Lets be honest, people are probably getting tired of us, Jones said. We dont really mind. We enjoy being the top dog and enjoy kind of having that target on our back, and we love our conference. Obviously, wed rather not be a part of any other conference. This title game certainly has a different feel than last years. That was really kind of a weird national championship because it was a team we already played, Jones remembered. It was kind of another SEC game. It was in the South, and it just had a very SEC feel to it obviously. This year is much more like the 2009 game (against Texas) for me. Were playing an opponent that not only we have not played them, but no one we have played has played them. So you dont really have an exact measuring stick. In fact, these schools have played only six times, and not since 1987, but the first of their meetings is still remembered as one of the landmark games in college football history. Bear Bryant had one of his best teams at the 1973 Sugar Bowl, but Ara Parseghian and the Fighting Irish claimed the national title by knocking off top-ranked Alabama 24-23. If youre a long-time Notre Dame fan, you still remember Parseghians gutty call to throw the ball out of the end zone for a gameclinching first down. If you were rooting for the Tide, you havent forgotten a missed extra point that turned out to be the losing margin. Of course, these Alabama players arent concerned about what happened nearly four decades ago. For the most part, all they know is winning. Theres a lot of tradition that goes into Alabama football, Mosley said, and our plan is to keep that tradition alive. BCS Continued from Page B1 Associated PressMIAMI After decades when paying college athletes was thought to violate the spirit of amateurism, the enormous television revenue generated by sports football and basketball in particular and the long hours of work by the players have changed the debate. The head of the NCAA now supports a stipend for athletes to cover costs beyond tuition, books and fees, and both coaches in Mondays BCS championship between No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama spoke in support of the idea in the days before the game. The question is no longer whether to cut athletes a check, its how best to do that. I still think the overriding factor here is that these young men put in so much time with being a student and then their responsibilities playing the sport, that they dont have an opportunity to make any money at all, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said Sunday. I want them to be college kids, and a stipend will continue to allow them to be college kids. This seasons Irish will get scholarships worth about $52,000 per year and the school will receive $6.2 million for playing in the title game to go with the $15 million NBC reportedly pays just to televise the schools regular-season home games. NCAA President Mark Emmert believes it is time for a change. While Emmert draws a clear distinction between the $2,000 stipend he has proposed and play-forpay athletics, he unapologetically advocates for giving student-athletes a larger cut of a huge pie that is about to get even bigger. The NCAAs current mens basketball tournament agreement with CBS and Turner is worth an average of more than $770 million per year, and the current Bowl Championship Series television deal is worth $180 million per year. In October 2011, the NCAAs Division I Board of Directors approved a rule change that would give colleges the option of providing athletes with a $2,000 stipend for expenses not covered by scholarships. But many schools objected to the policy, and last January, the board delayed its implementation. Colleges worried about how the stipends would affect Title IX compliance and whether theyd be able to afford them. To help build more support, Emmerts latest proposal would make the funds need-based. In other words, lower-income students would get more money than wealthy ones. However it works out, Kelly sees stipends as inevitable. This is going to happen, Kelly said. Its just when is it going to happen? I think like minds need to get together and figure it out. Pay-for-play NCAA: Not if, but how J IM L ITKE AP sports columnistThe final whistle of the national championship game also signals a new beginning. Its time to start saying goodbye to the Bowl Championship Series as we know it. The cartel hijacked the postseason in 1998 and despite a tweak here and a tuck there, kept it roughly the same during that run, despite facing more criticism than the replacement refs. Mercifully, though, the 201314 season, ending at the Rose Bowl next January, is guaranteed to be the last gasp. The most obvious change the season after that without going full Jim Mora on you will be PLAYOFFS??? Or to be more exact, a four-team mini-playoff in January 2015. The site is still to be chosen from among a half-dozen bids, and after that, the process will be open to all comers, the way the NFL chooses its Super Bowl cities. For plenty of us, that cant happen soon enough. I wont kid you, this system has been plenty good to us, Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood said as the second-ranked Crimson Tide wrapped up preparations in search of their third BCS title in the last four years. But I got a lot of calls and texts from friends on other teams who dont think its fair, Norwood added, with a quick glance over his shoulder to see if anyone else was listening in. Me, too. When I was in high school at DIberville (Miss.), the chance to play for a state title was everything. You could lose a game here and there, and not feel like your season was done. Its a lot fairer for everyone. College football wont be that democratic for a while. How fast and far bracket creep begins remains anyones guess. The current TV deal extends out a dozen years and most of the same guys who ran the last version of the BCS remain in charge. As noted above, they do not like to be bullied. Theres also nothing in the contract that even hints at expanding the format. But if the mini-playoff proves successful enough, and especially if theres some turnover at the top of the conferences, adding four more teams to the mix could come as early as a halfdozen years down the road. Anything beyond that, especially the 16-team playoff that would do college football justice, is no more than a pipe dream at the moment. Remember: It took a century or so of wrangling just to reach the threshold of a playoff. So for the moment, lets limit the discussion to the mini-playoff. The toughest adjustment could be the bowl committees themselves. The Rose, Sugar and Orange bowls have already been assured of spots in the national semifinal rotation, expected to be joined by the Fiesta Bowl and two other sites maybe Atlanta and Dallas. Weve got a semi every three years and eight other significant games, Orange Bowl CEO Eric Poms said. Were pretty happy with the road map. Few of the bowl committees further down the food chain are feeling that comfortable. There were 35 bowls this season and while TV ratings have generally held steady, a slight drop in attendance for the second straight year has some in the industry wondering whether theyve reached the saturation point. Im getting that question a lot, said Wright Waters, who heads the Football Bowl Association. My initial reaction is that as long as the bowls continue to market themselves as events, and not just games, and focus on gettingstrong regional matchups and competitive, compelling games, well be fine. Playoffs? Not yet, but finally on the way Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Alabama coach Nick Saban says hes not much for comedies. He prefers his movies to have a message, and part of his routine for getting his players ready to play in a big game has been to have them watch an inspirational film. Saban thought long and hard Sunday during his last news conference before the BCS championship game against No. 1 Notre Dame, but couldnt be sure what movie his LSU team watched before it beat Oklahoma to win the 2003 title. Maybe it was The Last Samurai, he said. The 2009 Alabama championship team that beat Texas in the Rose Bowl watched Remember the Titans, the Denzel Washington football flick. Last year, before the Crimson Tide beat LSU in New Orleans, Saban and his players watched Red Tails about the Tuskegee airmen. But I think the movie, regardless of whether it was The Last Samurai or whatever movie it was, really it was about the honor of the message was the honor of being all that you can be, that maybe that might be more important than winning or losing, and that your focus should be on that instead of the outcome, he said. Before Alabama played Notre Dame, the Crimson Tide were scheduled to watch Zero Dark Thirty, which chronicles the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. What, no Rudy? THE LINK: Frank Thomas had brushes with greatness at two of college footballs powerhouses, and achieved plenty of it himself. Thomas was a quarterback for Notre Dames Knute Rockne and started a 15year run as Alabamas coach in 1931, a year before a big country boy named Paul Bear Bryant came to play in Tuscaloosa. Bryant eventually returned to Tuscaloosa for a 25-year run as head coach, but didnt forget his coach. Coach Bryant had a feel for Notre Dame and I think a level of respect because of his coach, Frank Thomas, who he absolutely loved and thought was a great, great coach and referred back to him so many times, said Alabama athletic director Mal Moore, who played and coached under Bryant. Thomas, who died in 1954, won 81.2 percent of his games, four Southeastern Conference titles and a couple of national championships. His winning percentage isnt all that far behind Bryants (82.4 percent) or current coach Nick Saban (83.7, counting wins later vacated). SEVENTH HEAVEN: The Southeastern Conference has won the last six BCS titles, and Alabama is looking to make it No. 7. Crimson Tide center Barrett Jones said its hardly automatic, however, that an SEC team wins it all. That notion that SEC teams are head-and-shoulders above everyone else in the nation is even farfetched to him. There are some people that may be a little too-SECbiased. Dont quote me on that, but you probably will, Jones said. Certainly, dont get me wrong, I think the SEC is probably by a good margin the best conference. But that doesnt mean there arent other good teams out there. The SEC had another good postseason, going 5-3 in the bowls so far. Though losses by Florida and LSU were unexpected and two Big Ten-SEC matchups (South Carolina-Michigan and Georgia-Nebraska) werent as decisive as many expected. BK LIKE NICK: Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly is happy to be compared to Nick Saban. But, no, he hasnt spent much time buddying around with the Alabama coach. Well, Nick obviously has the reputation of being a great program builder, Kelly said Sunday. Hes defined himself, as only a few coaches ... have won the championships that he has. So I take that as a great personal compliment, as it relates to constructing football programs and putting winning football teams on the field. I would take that moniker any time. Asked if he had ever crossed paths with Saban, maybe at public appearances, during the time Kelly was at Division II Grand Valley State in Michigan and Saban was head coach for Michigan State, Kelly laughed. Public appearances for Nick? he said. Nick Saban, I got a chance to know him when he was at Toledo, a very short stint at Toledo, but I got a chance to know him through a couple of camps that I worked at, and got to know him better when he was at Michigan State. And I have a great deal of respect for him and followed his career, his path, and certainly when we see each other today, were reminded about where we started. We both started in the Mid-American Conference, so a lot of the times that we talk, we talk about the times back in Ohio and Michigan. Saban started his coaching career at Kent State, his alma mater, and Kellys first Division I job was at Central Michigan. WEST COAST TOUCH: Pac-12 officials will handle the BCS championship game. Alabama was tied third in the country in fewest penalties per game at 3.8 for 32.8 yards. Notre Dame was middle of the pack nationally. The Irish were tied for 51st at 5.7 penalties per game for 42.9 yards. Pac-12 officials have a reputation for being aggressive with the flags. Six of the 25 most penalized teams in major college football are from the Pac-12. Associated Press Alabama head coach Nick Saban makes his way to a microphone Saturday as workers paint the field at Sun Life Stadium during Media Day for the BCS National Championship game in Miami.

Associated PressPALM SPRINGS, Calif. The Award Season Express made its first stop of the new year in the middle of the desert a couple of hours east of Hollywood at the annual Palm Springs International Film Festival gala. A blast of Golden Globe nominees and Oscar hopefuls walked the press gauntlet Saturday night, including Naomi Watts (The Impossible), Helen Hunt and John Hawkes (The Sessions), Ben Affleck (Argo) and Arbitrage star Richard Gere, who received the nights so-called Chairmans Award. Great, Gere noted with more than a touch of sarcasm. Thats better than the Governors Award? he inquired, with a chuckle. Whats the pecking order of these awards? I want to know. Am I getting the best award? Im not going in unless Im getting the best award! Though the 63-year-old Gere has never received an Oscar nomination, there were previous Academy Award winners aplenty at the Palm Springs gala. Among them was Sally Field, the nights honoree for career achievement, including her hard-won role of Mary Todd in director Steven Spielbergs Lincoln. I still cant believe I got the role, Field replied, cracking a smile. Did I get it? Turning serious, she told the black-tie audience she was proud to be part of the film and happy to still be working. Im very lucky ... Next year itll be 50 years that Ive been in the business as a professional. Its been a wild ride, she said. This upcoming week, the Awards Season Express has a bit of a wild ride itself, with the Peoples Choice show, two critics awards ceremonies and Thursday mornings Oscar nominations. So how does the phrase Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper sound to the Silver Linings Playbook actor? That would be incredible, Cooper answered, explaining that he just may sleep through the predawn nomination announcements. Yeah, Im sure Ill get up, but maybe Ill be asleep. I dont know. And just three days after the Oscar nominations, its the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards a much, much friendlier show, exclaimed Hitchcock nominee Helen Mirren. And it has to do with those tables in still quite a small room, she explained. They havent allowed it to get enormous. ... Everybody table jumps and chats. Its always slightly naughty. The hosts are always naughty. I cant wait to have Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing it. Thats going to be such fun.

Bieber meets girl in hospital SALT LAKE CITY Millie Flamm was too sick to attend Justin Biebers concert in Salt Lake City, but she got the next best thing: a visit from the pop star in her hospital room. Bieber showed up in the 7-year-old leukemia patients room at Primary Childrens Medical Center before his concert Saturday night. Her mother, Amanda Flamm told the Deseret News Millies mood brightened when Bieber walked into the room and gave her a hug. He sang a song while holding her hand and gave her his guitar pick. Bieber gave Millie a kiss on the cheek before leaving, prompting the girl to tell her mother, You are never going to wash my face again. Brolin arrested on New Years DaySANTA MONICA, Calif. Josh Brolin spent some of New Years Day and the following morning in a Southern California jail cell after getting arrested for misdemeanor public intoxication. Santa Monica Police Lt. Darrell Lowe said the actor was not given a citation for the Tuesday arrest, which means he likely wont have to appear in court. Lowe said Brolin was arrested just before midnight Jan.1, when officers found him heavily intoxicated on a Santa Monica sidewalk. He was booked into jail and released about six hours later after he had sobered up. Brolin is starring in the crime film Gangster Squad, which opens this week. Rare Beatles pics up for auction LONDON Unpublished early color photographs of The Beatles first U.S. tour will be sold at a U.K. auction. The photos were taken during the rock bands 1964 visit to the U.S., when color film was expensive and most images of the group were in black and white. The collection of 65 slides contains many stage shots, including George Harrison with his legendary red Rickenbacker guitar and closeup portraits from a Las Vegas Sahara Hotel press conference and Las Vegas Convention Centre gig. The images were taken by Dr. Robert Beck who died in 2002 and left them in an archive of photographs and slides in his Hollywood home. Omega Auctions said Sunday the images will be sold March 22. Justin Bieber Josh Brolin Spotlight on PEOPLE E NTERTAINMENT Page B6 MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 Award-season hopefuls stop in Palm Springs Associated PressPASADENA, Calif. On his upcoming NBC comedy, Michael J. Fox will play a newscaster who had quit his job due to Parkinsons Disease but returns to work in the shows first episode because a new medical regimen has helped him control many of the diseases symptoms. It mirrors the life of the former Family Ties and Spin City star, who said last year that drugs have helped minimize the physical tics of Parkinsons and have enabled him to take on more acting jobs. The yet-to-be-named sitcom is a key piece of NBCs strategy to build upon a revival that has brought the network back from many years in the ratings wilderness. Show like The Voice and Revolution have made NBC the only one of the four biggest networks to gain in viewership over last season. Though its not definite, NBC is penciling Foxs comedy in for September on its low-rated Thursday schedule. The long-running Thursday comedy Rock ends its run on Jan. 31, and The Office will exit after a special one-hour episode this spring. In the family comedy, Foxs character will be the father of two teenage children and a younger boy, Jennifer Salke, the networks entertainment president, said Sunday. It will be set in New York City, and filmed there, too, she said. The real-life disease has left Fox an object of pityfueled admiration, yet Fox approaches his life and his work with a lot of irreverence, Salke said. Its a family show that has him dealing with work and office relationships as well as dealing with kind of his public persona, which is very real, she said. You see, he gets a standing ovation everywhere he shows up, and the idea that hes sort of been put up on this pedestal by the country and the world, really. Hes just a regular guy, who gets frustrated, who gets mad at having to sit at home. Fox is meeting this week with actresses who may be cast as his wife on the show. Fox has appeared in limited roles over the past few years, most notably as a lawyer in CBS The Good Wife. But its his track record as the star of two previous sitcoms that has NBC executives eagerly looking forward to the new show. He left ABCs Spin City in 2000 after four seasons, saying he hoped to help find a cure for Parkinsons. NBC focused this season on improving its standing earlier in the week, building from the popular Sunday night football franchise and a new fall edition of The Voice on Mondays and Tuesdays. The strategy worked better than executives envisioned, said Robert Greenblatt, NBC entertainment chairman. In the must-see days of Friends and Seinfeld, NBC was the king of Thursday nights. But its ratings are a fraction of what they were, as its current comedies havent matched critical acclaim with a large audience. Michael J.

One year ago: Three days before the New Hampshire primary, Mitt Romney brushed aside rivals criticism in the opening round of a weekend debate doubleheader that left his Republican presidential campaign challengers squabbling among themselves and unable to knock the front-runner off stride. Todays Birthdays: Author William Peter Blatty is 85. Pop musician Paul Revere is 75. Magazine publisher Jann Wenner is 67. Singer Kenny Loggins is 65. Actor David Caruso is 57. Talk show host Katie Couric is 56. Actor Nicolas Cage is 49. Thought for Today: I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable. Anne Morrow Lindbergh, American author (1906-2001).

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ANUARY7, 2013 B7 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Sebastian Vettel, who last November became the youngest ever Formula One Grand Prix driver to win three world championships, said, As a driver, your target is always to be with the most competitive team possible. As a bridge player, your target is always the number of tricks needed to make or to break a contract. When on defense, always ask yourself where your side might take those tricks what I call the defensive target. In this deal, how should East defend against three no-trump after West leads the club queen? West might have made a takeout double on the first round, which would have shown four spades and four or more clubs. His point-count was low, but if he could have found a fit with his partner, maybe his side could have done well. North was a trick too strong for his three-diamond rebid, but nothing else was better. And South went for the nine-trick game. It is common in no-trump to return your partners suit. (In a trump contract, this happens much less often.) Here, though, if East wins with his club ace and leads back the club nine, how many tricks will declarer take? Even if South is void in diamonds, he must have at least 10 winners: two hearts, seven diamonds and one club not good. The only chance for the defense is to cash four spade tricks immediately. East should take his club ace and shift to the spade queen. Here, East and West take the checkered flag. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Locked Up Abroad Drugs, Inc. The Cannabis industry. Drugs, Inc.

Even though we live several hours from his mother, she controls many of our familys decisions. My mother-in-law is our only living parent. I have tried many times to please her, without success. I often have the family over to our home and invite them to our summer cottage. I plan outings and shop for gifts. She doesnt drive, so I take her to the grocery and wherever else she needs to go. But in her eyes, I cannot do anything right. Barry jumps when she asks him to do anything. If she needs a light bulb changed, he immediately goes to fix it. She has always been his boss in terms of what he does, how he does it and when he does it. And she is his confidante when it comes to our marriage, which does not help. For the past several years, Barry has been very uninterested in me. Hes angry all the time and blames me for everything that goes wrong in his life. Ive been to counseling, but Barry (and his mother) feels this is nonsense and says there must be something wrong with me. I have been an outsider in Barrys family for my entire marriage and see no hope of changing it. Where do I go from here? Is divorce my only answer? I truly love my husband, but I dont like our life with his family, and he is unwilling to make changes. Sad in the North Dear Sad: Your mother-in-law sounds difficult, but your real problem is Barry. If he would back you up, it would give you an opportunity to change the dynamics within the relationship. But his family doesnt show you respect because Barry doesnt demand it, and worse, he makes them believe they can treat you poorly. And while his family deserves his consideration, as well, it shouldnt come at your expense. Tell Barry that your marriage is in serious trouble, not only because of the way his family treats you, but because he is angry and uninterested. If he refuses to go for counseling, go back on your own and figure out whats best for you. Dear Annie : A year ago, I approached my aunt about something she did that hurt my family. I tried to do so with gentleness and respect. However, not only did she not apologize, but she also completely rationalized her behavior. Now she acts as if I did something wrong, and she is ignoring me. We used to be quite close and corresponded frequently. I still write to her, but get no response. She sends texts to everyone but me. She even writes my wife and kids, but its as if I no longer exist. How should I deal with this situation? The Silent Treatment Dear Silent: You caught your aunt behaving poorly. Instead of being mature about it, she became defensive. Now she is punishing you as a way to avoid taking responsibility for her actions. If you are willing to forgo the apology, you can simply tell her you miss her and the closeness you once had. Its also possible that in time she will begin including you again, as long as you dont mention the previous unpleasantness. We hope she will grow up soon. Dear Annie : Worried Papa said his teenage daughter wants to get her navel pierced. I got mine pierced in my 20s because everyone else was doing it, so of course I thought it was cool, too. In my 30s, I got pregnant and removed the ring. Now I have an ugly hole that was stretched during two pregnancies. Tattoos also stretch with aging and pregnancy, and some of them look like gross ink blobs as your skin loses its elasticity.

In his first public speech in six months, Assad laid out terms for a peace plan that keeps himself in power, ignoring international demands to step down and pledging to continue the battle as long as there is one terrorist left in Syria.

The signatures are from citizens opposed to reducing the flow of the Chassahowitzka River. Determining minimum flows and levels for rivers a hot topic in 2012 A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerFor the uninitiated, MFLs or minimum flows and levels is beginning to hold water. In the past year, some county residents have been embroiled in a point-andcounterpoint debate with officials with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) over water flow levels at two of the countys seven rivers. It culminated in a compromise of sorts by SWFWMDs governing board. The water district board rejected the staffs recommended levels of flow, reducing the proposed minimum flow for the Chassahowitzka River from an initial recommendation. The board voted to set the MFLs for each river at 3 percent. The SWFWMD staff recommendation was initially for 3 and 9 percent respectively for the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka rivers. The board also instructed SWFWMD staff to develop the framework for a water use cautionary area for Hernando and Citrus counties and present it to the board in June 2013. Cautionary areas require more stringent water withdrawal permit rules. The compromise also requires MFLs be reviewed every six years rather than the usual 10 years. Many locals and environmental advocates are not pleased. Brad Rimbey, who is with SOS NOW, an umbrella group of disparate environmental MFL debate continues Syrian President Bashar Assad gestures while he speaks Sunday at the Opera House in central Damascus, Syria. Associated Press See SYRIA/ Page A8 PUBLIC HEARING The Southwest Florida Water Mana gement District has scheduled a public hearing to give affected persons an opportunity to present evidence and argument on the rules proposed by the district to establish minimum flows for the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka River Systems.

Around theCOUNTY Take part in TPO teleconferenceThe results of the 2010 U.S. Census indicated sufficient population growth to merit Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) merging with another countys Metropolitan Planning Organization. Based upon the expected growth and development of the region, the department believes the most effective regional transportation planning process would be accomplished by combining the Homosassa Springs-Beverly Hills-Citrus Springs urbanized area with one of the adjacent MPOs, Ananth Prasad, secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation, said in a letter sent in November to the TPO. The TPOs Technical Advisory Committee and Citizens Advisory Committee will host a joint meeting by teleconference at 2 p.m. Wednesday to discuss merging with Hernando Countys MPO.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Port board set to sign study deal CHRISVANORMER Staff writerExecuting an agreement with TranSystems Corporation to prepare a feasibility study for Port Citrus will account for most of the business at Tuesdays meeting of the Citrus County Port Authority board. It has taken nearly two years for county government to get to this stage in its quest to determine if a commercial seaport could be developed along the former Cross Florida Barge Canal site in the northwest section of the county. After a legal challenge to its first selection process for a consultant to conduct the feasibility study, the board met in October to repeat the process. It chose TranSystems Corporation for the task and its negotiating team has met with TranSystems representatives to draw up a mutually agreeable scope of services document. TranSystems will charge $100,000 for the study. Half the funding will come from the Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development (FSTED) Council. The other half will be met by CLM Workforce Connection $15,000, Citrus County business license fees $15,000, Citrus County Economic Development Council $12,000 and port authority $8,000. TranSystems intends to approach the assignment as a three-phased project with costs budgeted at each phase. The first phase would determine if the establishment of Port Citrus would be economically viable. If the first phase found Port Citrus not to be feasible, TranSystems proposed to suspend the study. This phase would be completed within 140 days and cost $20,000. The second phase would identify funding sources and make preliminary applications for funding. This phase would be completed within 120 days and cost $30,000. The third phase would refine market analysis to identify potential market opportunities and port customers. This phase would be completed within 270 to 360 days of the start of the project and cost $50,000. The completed feasibility study would be used as a marketing tool to attract commercial interest in developing Port Citrus. The study is expected to be completed within one year. Under a 2011 state law that added Citrus as the 18th member of FSTED Council, the port authority has until July 1, 2014, to conduct a feasibility study.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

This weekend marks the 107th annual Epiphany celebration for the Greek Orthodox community. Events include the blessing of the waters, a traditional litany procession and a cross dive. Forty-seven male teens dove into 65-degree water Sunday to grab the cross.

The winner is said to be blessed with one years good luck.Semi full of bulls crashes on InterstateGAINESVILLE A crash on I-75 in central Florida snarled traffic after a semitrailer hauling 32 bulls blew a tire and slammed into a tree. Florida Highway Patrol officials said three of the bulls got loose after Saturdays accident and one had to be shot because it was too aggressive. The Gainesville Sun reported a crew of people including cowboys, veterinarians and state troopers, set up chutes with portable metal fences to offload the bulls from the semi into trailers that would transport them to South Florida. Bryan Martin said he and driver Travis Carr were hauling the bulls from Texas to Indiantown. The truck driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.Bald eagles, hatchlings viewed on webcamFORT MYERS Millions are descending on southwest Florida to spy on some of their most famous citizens American bald eagles Ozzie and Harriet. The world watched via webcam as the eagles recently added two hatchlings to their nest. One came on New Years Day and a sibling came three days later. The News-Press reported more than 2.7 million streams have been recorded on the eagle cam installed above the nest. The babies will likely stay in the nest until late March. Dick Pritchett owns the property where the nest resides. He said the family installed the camera after hearing about other eagle cameras around the country, saying they wanted to share the experience with the world.Mans body found floating in Hudson canalHUDSON BEACH Authorities are investigating after a mans body was found floating in a canal near Hudson Beach.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death and identify the body. A citizen first called the Coast Guard to report the body. Reporter making lasting memories JANTUCKWOOD The Palm Beach PostWEST PALM BEACH Susan Spencer-Wendel made a career covering courts and criminals, so shes used to asking tough questions. Now that shes the subject of national media attention herself, she appreciates journalists who tackle the hard stuff head-on like the question shes been asked several times recently: Do you think this is your last Christmas? Her answer is direct: Yes. So by jove were gonna enjoy it! Creating lasting memories from last holidays and celebrating joy in every moment has been Susans quest since summer 2011, when she learned she had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) Lou Gehrigs disease. As the incurable disease began to wither her muscles, Susan took control like the resourceful reporter she is: She decided that if her time would be limited, she would squeeze every bit of fun out of it. She planned bucket-list trips with her dearest loved ones, then wrote about two of them in ThePalm Beach Post, where she had been courts reporter for 11 years. Stories of her amazing trips one to see the Northern Lights with her best friend, Nancy, and one to Budapest to celebrate her 20th wedding anniversary with her husband, John got the attention of book publishers. HarperCollins paid approximately $2 million for Susans life story, and Universal paid $2 million more for movie rights. Susan typed her memoir, Until I Say Goodbye, in three months on an iPhone with the one finger that has not forsaken her: Her right thumb. The book will be published in March and translated into 25 languages. It is now available for preorder and has its own website susanspencer wendel.com and Facebook page. HarperCollins calls Susans story a powerfully emotional, inspirational and irrepressibly joyous look at the things that matter most. Until I Say Goodbye is the fulfillment of her final wish: To make people laugh and cry and hug their children and joke with their friends and dwell in how wonderful it is to be alive. Susan wrote an email update on her life which has recently been full of interviews with reporters from People, the Today show, NPR and The Associated Press and more to share with Postreaders: I so enjoy meeting the journalists. Seeing what they create and how talented they are. People shared their stories with me for so many years, I consider it a privilege to share mine with them. We taped a lot of media these past weeks as my voice becomes more slurred everyday. All the content is due to be aired around March 12 the books release date. By then, my voice will be unintelligible. My decline is speeding up: each day I lose more steps and words. I now choke at most every meal, episodes which leave people around me screaming Should we call 911? Ergo, I dont eat much anymore. I knew it would be this way. So for Thanksgiving we had our major holiday event. Our entire families 40 in all came. Was wonderful. Hectic, but wonderful. Thus, Christmas is a time just for John and me and our children. The family enjoyed the day at their home in Lake Clarke Shores, where Susans favorite writing spot is the big chickee hut in the backyard. From wire reports

going to come to the board and start talking about the budget. Thorpe said the county budget would feature at every meeting this year of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). This action is in response to a $17 million shortfall that arose in late November when the county learned that its biggest taxpayer, Progress Energy Florida, would refuse to pay its full 2012 tax bill. Thorpe said he planned to take time at each BOCC meeting to break down the countys $231 million budget for commissioners and residents to understand how the county is funded and what its services cost. Were going to break it down; were going to boil it out, Thorpe said. Were going to talk about what the general fund is all about. Thorpe will introduce this discussion at 2:30 p.m. as his first budget forecast review detailing the budget for the upcoming fiscal year 2013-14. From these talks, taxpayers can advise the BOCC whether taxes should increase, services should decrease or a combination of both. Thorpe also will lead a discussion about the interlocal agreement with the Citrus County School Board on concurrency and impact fees. The school board has advised that it does not want concurrency provisions to be removed from the interlocal agreement and it wants to continue collection of school impact fees. If the BOCC decides to suspend impact fees for schools, an analysis will need to be conducted to consider the effect it will place on the school boards capital facilities program. Commissioners are expected to decide and instruct staff. The BOCC also will be asked to proceed with the agreement between Citrus County Port Authority and TranSystems for the consultant firm to prepare a feasibility study for Port Citrus. At 1:15 p.m., the BOCC will present certificates, proclamations and employee service awards. Recognition will be given to Lowes Inverness store, Beverly Hills Surveillance Unit and the Craftsmans Guild Inc. for co-sponsoring and supporting the AdoptA-Tree event Dec. 14 at the Central Ridge Community Center at Beverly Hills. Public Hearings will begin at 2 p.m. The first will consider a street vacation application regarding roadways in the Crystal River Airport area. At 2:10 p.m., a public hearing will consider the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) rental development strategy 2013.

What we want is for them (SWFWMD) to follow the law, Rimbey said. He said his group would like to see the law as called for by the rules of the Outstanding Florida Waters designation. An Outstanding Florida Water (OFW) is a water designated worthy of special protection because of its natural attributes. This special designation is applied to certain waters, and is intended to protect existing good water quality. We feel like they are failing to follow what that law says. What we need is restoration, certainly not further degradation, Rimbey said. Rimbey applauded the boards decision to broach the issue of designating the river systems as possible cautionary areas. SWFWMD officials have insisted the OFW rules do not apply in this case and that agency staff members have worked fastidiously since 2005 to fashion the best recommendations for the rivers. While officials acknowledge degradation at the rivers, they blame it on other factors, such as poor rainfall amounts a 20 percent to 30 percent drop rising sea levels and nutrient levels. They insist the agency came up with the most protective regime for these rivers stronger than for all other rivers except one. This year SWFWMD is expected to begin work on setting MFLs for the Crystal River and Kings Bay. Setting MFLs is mandated by state law.

medical personnel are volunteering their time and have received sovereign immunity through the Florida Volunteer Health Services Department to provide dental services free to needy Citrus County elderly, veterans, homeless and low-income adults. The health department offers dental care for children; however, there is no place for adults, said Tom Slagle, director of Nature Coast Ministries. All of our dentists are licensed by the state of Florida. Currently, they will focus only on extractions and fillings, as those are the typical dental emergency. Further down the line, organizers may consider expanding services. Also, times of operations are to be determined by dentist availability. The free dental program meets a glaring need in the community. One hospital was spending $750,000 a year on emergency care for people with dental emergencies, said Bonnie McMullin, public relations for Nature Coast Ministries. They were giving them medication and painkillers, but eight weeks later they were back because they ran out of medicine and the tooth wasnt fixed. It is a cycle. Recognizing the need in Citrus County, a retiring dentist in Sarasota donated his dental office equipment. A hospital donated money to purchase the rest of needed equipment. These dentists are going to come in and be working with the best equipment available, Slagle said. This is a huge thing for Citrus County. The need is tremendous. The dental clinic is ready to open; however, there is one thing standing in the way money for supplies and utilities. It costs $25 per person for supplies for dental work to be done. Work is performed for free; however, supplies and utilities need to be covered. If it cost $25 a person times 25 patients, that is $625 a week or $32,500 a year, McMullin said. We dont charge anyone for services, but if we dont have the supplies we cant help them. Slagle said Black Diamond in Lecanto donated $6,200 to buy the basic supplies. However, their struggle is to outline how to continue to compensate for supplies and utilities after the donation has been used. I tell individuals that if every household in Citrus County gave us a dollar a week, that would equal $52 a year, Slagle said. Thats two clients that could be treated. Citrus County transit will make six daily stops at the clinic. Say you live in Floral City, Slagle said, you can ride the bus from Floral City to our location and back for only $2. Slagle and McMullin feel a permanent dental clinic in Citrus County is life changing. It is such a blessing because these people couldnt afford to have this care, McMullin said. Some people in this community have never been to a dentist adults. This will be such a boon for peoples self esteem. Maybe for the first time in their life they will be able to get the tooth fixed that has been hurting them for months or years.

Rescue crews spent their fourth straight day looking for a skydiver who vanished during a jump above Washingtons Cascade foothills, but found no sign of the Florida man by dusk. King County sheriffs Sgt. Cindi West says 100 searchers were out near 4,200-foot Mount Si east of Seattle early Sunday to find 29-year-old Kurt Ruppert of Lake City. Ruppert hasnt been seen since he jumped out of a helicopter at 6,500 feet Thursday afternoon, wearing a special wing suit with fabric under the arms to allow him to glide like a flying squirrel. Crews narrowed their search area Saturday, based on data from Rupperts cellphone and the helicopters flight path. The search might continue Monday.

Opera House in central Damascus a sign by the besieged leader that he sees no need to hide or compromise even with the violent civil war closing in on his seat of power in the capital. The theater was packed with his supporters who interrupted the speech with applause, cheers and occasional fist-waving chants, including God, Bashar and Syria! The overtures that Assad offered a national reconciliation conference, elections and a new constitution were reminiscent of symbolic changes and concessions offered previously in the uprising that began in March 2011. Those were rejected at the time as too little, too late. The government last year adopted a constitution that theoretically allows political parties to compete with Assads ruling Baath Party. It carried out parliamentary elections that were boycotted by his opponents. Assad demanded that regional and Western countries must stop funding and arming the rebels trying to overthrow him. We never rejected a political solution ... but with whom should we talk? With those who have an extremist ideology, who only understand the language of terrorism? Or should we with negotiate puppets whom the West brought? he asked. We negotiate with the master, not with the slave, he answered. As in previous speeches and interviews, he clung to the view that the crisis was a foreign-backed plot and not an uprising against him and his familys decades-long rule. Is this a revolution and are these revolutionaries? By God, I say they are a bunch of criminals, he said. He stressed the presence of religious extremists among those fighting in Syria, calling them terrorists who carry the ideology of al-Qaida and servants who know nothing but the language of slaughter. He said the fighters sought to transform the country into a jihad land. Although he put up a defiant front, Assad laid out the grim reality of the violence, and he spoke in front of a collage of photos of what appeared to be Syrians killed in the fighting. We are now in a state of war in every sense of the word, Assad said, a war that targets Syria using a handful of Syrians and many foreigners. It is a war to defend the nation. He said Syria will take advice but not dictates from anyone a reference to outside powers calling on him to step down. The speech, which was denounced by the West, including the U.S. and Britain, came amid stepped-up international efforts for a peaceful way out of the Syrian conflict. Previous efforts have failed to stem the bloodshed. U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi met Assad last month to push for a peace plan for Syria based on a plan 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 until new elections can be held and a new constitution drafted. The opposition swiftly rejected Assads proposals. Those fighting to topple the regime have repeatedly said they will accept nothing less than his departure, dismissing any kind of settlement that leaves him in the picture. It is an excellent initiative that is only missing one crucial thing: His resignation, said Kamal Labwani, a veteran dissident and member of the oppositions Syrian National Coalition umbrella group. All what he is proposing will happen automatically, but only after he steps down, Labwani told The Associated Press by telephone from Sweden. Haitham Maleh, an opposition figure in Turkey, said Assad was offering the initiative because he feels increasingly besieged by advancing rebels. How could he expect us to converse with a criminal, a killer, a man who does not abide by the law? he asked. Assad has spoken only on rare occasions since the uprising began, and Sundays speech was his first since June. His last public comments came in an interview in November to Russian TV in which he vowed to live and die in Syria. On Sunday, he seemed equally confident in the ability of his troops to crush the rebellion despite the recent fighting in Damascus. He did not come across as a leader under siege, nor as a leader whose regime is on the verge of collapse, said Fawaz A. Gerges, head of the Middle East Center at the London School of Economics. He seemed determined that any political settlement must come on his terms, linking those terms with the Syrian national interest as if they are inseparable, he said. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement that Assads speech was yet another attempt by the regime to cling to power and does nothing to advance the Syrian peoples goal of a political transition. British Foreign Secretary William Hague called Assads speech beyond hypocritical. In a message posted on his official Twitter feed, Hague said empty promises of reform fool no one. European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashtons office said in a statement that the bloc will look carefully if there is anything new in the speech, but we maintain our position that Assad has to step aside and allow for a political transition. Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu of Turkey said the speech was filled with empty promises and repetitive pledges of reform by a leader out of touch with the Syrian people. It seems (Assad) has shut himself in his room, and for months has read intelligence reports that are presented to him by those trying to win his favor, Davutoglu told reporters in the Aegean port city of Izmir on Sunday. Turkey is a former ally of Damascus, and while Ankara first backed Assad after the uprising erupted, it turned against the regime after its violent crackdown on dissent. Observers said the speech signaled the violence would continue indefinitely as long as both sides lacked the ability to score a victory on the battlefield.A8MONDAY, JANUARY7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000DPF2 000DM9T SYRIAContinued from Page A1 Associated PressSyrian men leave the old city of Aleppo, Syria, on Sunday.

Lets talk videogamesStunned and stressed and reeling, were now immersed in the whats and whys of factors that triggered this massacre. Much of it includes postmortems by police gathering evidence and psychologists attributing motives, some plausible while others speculating widely. But it doesnt matter how gruesome the detail we still want to know. And now we attempt to deal with the aftermath, attempting to comprehend Sandy Hooks horror, an event relegated to history as a watershed moment in American atrocities. An act even more despicable than that of a savage, by a psychotic individual whose derangement went unnoticed or unheeded, and resulted in a plot to metaphorically play the ultimate video game, the slaughter of innocents. However, the lessons learned of this massacre need not go without positing some urgent common sense measures to mitigate similar occurrences in the future. We must begin by admitting that we share the guilt because of having been passively silent about the proliferation of pernicious elements rife in our society at large. For one, video games, which are designed for visceral gratification, yet the thematic of which is senseless destruction and unrepentant violence. Unsupervised youngsters tend to gravitate to ultra video games in earnest, unknowing that what they view is mentally toxic. And in other electronic media responsible adults tend to overlook obscenity, profanity, sexual abandon and gratuitous brutality as if those crude elements were acceptable prisms of entertainment for any age group. These are major factors in the context that imminent dangers lurk among the already mentally unstable, just waiting to burst. We would hope that this event will shake us from our slumber by engaging in serious dialogue to expose and underscore the infestations of ills increasingly prevalent in our society. For one, on all levels of government, citizen groups, academics, parents, teachers and clergy all forging an objective with one voice in common to be legislated and vigorously enforced. And two, a sobering awareness that we ought not be clothed in fear at what lurks around every corner, nor in our schools and here-and-about daily lives. Irrational fears breed irrational protections. Further fortressing and armoring can severely stunt much of everything that is constructively liberating. Rather overall, we are to foster a more wholesome, holistic and compassionate environment by suppressing perverse influences on clear and present danger grounds without sacrificing First Amendment rights. For like chickens are what chickens eat, youngsters are what they mentally ingest. May the dialogue ensue and immediately!Sam Raffa Citrus Springs Dont disarm usRecently some lunatic attacked school kids in a little town, killing some of them. Nobody really heard about it and the world didnt seem to care. There was no outpouring of grief and definitely no left wing liberals screaming to outlaw weapons. This little town was Cheng Ping, China, where 23 kids were stabbed by a lunatic. The previous year, 18 school kids were killed by murderers with knives. So why is there such an ongoing uproar about the terrible massacre in Newtown? The liberals love this kind of media coverage because the gun grabbers come out of the woodwork to find some way, any way to circumvent the Second Amendment of the Constitution. We dont see the gun grabbers saddened over the deaths of the kids in China because they cant use their massacre to attempt to take our weapons away. We see letters in the Chroniclefrom the perhaps well-meaning, but sadly misinformed liberals with their idea what part of the Second Amendment we should shave, cutting and cutting away until there is nothing left. They have the effrontery to think they can tell us what we need and dont need in the way of firearms. Who are they to tell the rest of us what we really need? If they dont want guns, if they dont want high-capacity magazines then they shouldnt buy them, but dont tell the rest of us what we need or dont need. Even my No. 1 fan, Mr. Chuck Weiler, says the gun grabbers are going too far and he is absolutely correct. Amazing! We agree on something. It is up to the individual gun owner to determine what he or she wants and needs, not the overbearing government. I only needed a two-shot Derringer to shoot the armed burglar that burst into my house many years ago but I only used that gun because it was closer than my others. So you gun grabbers, find another cause to babble about. How about outlawing knives? Would that have saved those Chinese school kids? Of course not, but they would have been known around the world if their killer had used a gun. Do the gun grabbers think the Chinese parents grieve less for their murdered children any less because they were stabbed rather than shot? I can tell you for a fact that the loss of a child is a pain that cannot be imagined by anyone except a parent who has seen their child killed. It has been nearly three decades since my son was killed but it really was only yesterday. The pain and the emptiness are always there, sitting in a huge hole in my heart. To grab all the guns is not the answer ... but it sure helps the liberals to disarm decent Americans.Harry Cooper HernandoNo more gun lawsA short time ago, I received an email, advising me our president is trying to make more gun laws trying to take our guns away from good citizens. It seems to me that our president, Congress and the House members dont know what theyre doing. They just think they can do whatever they want, even though its in our Constitution we have the right to keep and bear arms. Connecticut, a few days ago had a terrible, terrible incident in the killing of children in their classrooms by a boy that was not in his right mind. Our so-called leaders, some of which can hardly walk or do anything but sit in their offices, are so absent-minded they go along with whatever is brought up. Guns dont kill people, people kill people. They just cant understand that. Now, if a schools students take a test and use pencils, they make mistakes, why not do away with pencils, the kids are making too many mistakes with those pencils. On my next birthday, Ill be 67 years old. I retired 12 years ago after spending 30 years as a police officer. I joined the Navy when I was younger and spent time in Vietnam. I will be very angry if our president tells me to give up my guns. I am very careful with my guns. If Im not at or going to the shooting range, they are locked in a fireproof gun safe.Jake Little HomosassaArming our schoolsWeapons of mass destruction is a government that has taken/confiscated all guns from its law abiding citizens, as in Germany with rise of Hitler and other countries, and we know how that ended. After Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, the emperor wanted to invade America, but the head of the military said, There is a gun behind every blade of grass, meaning America has hunters, gun owners and housewives owning guns for recreation and protection. Knowing this has saved America more than once from being invaded. The protection of children is a top priority in all civilized countries and we see it in Israel schools as most if not all teachers are well trained and have some type of gun to protect the children, and in a small town in Texas some teachers and staff have been trained and carry guns in school for protection and the parents have stated they feel their children are more protected. We see on the school doors signs (gun-free zone/no guns allowed). Does this stop anyone or even put in their minds they will be stopped? No. But if the sign states there is trained, armed personnel, do you really think even a mentally ill person would attempt do harm and/or be able to carry out such atrocities? If the young teacher when confronted by the shooter in her classroom had been trained and had a gun she could have ended the killings right then and there. Guns do not make us unsafe, but ignorance and being unarmed does. The police do a good job, but cannot always be there to protect us, and when called how long to respond. Seconds count when a life is at risk. We should be armed and when the bad guy just thinks we are, he will stop and think first prior to robbing, breaking into our homes, businesses or schools to do harm. It will never stop all gun violence, but it will give us an advantage and the bad guy to stop and contemplate his fate and known outcome.Don B. Powell HernandoBlood on their handsThe weapon used in the Newtown murders was an AR-15 assault rifle that shoots four bullets per second, or 100 bullets per minute. It literally shoots like a machine gun. Its the same weapon used at the last three mass shootings. It was designed for the Armed Forces and needs to stay that way. This gun needs to be banned right now. It needs to be illegal at all secondary markets and private gun sales right now. The NRAs answer to end gun violence was a joke and insulting. Armed officers at our schools doesnt protect us at movie theaters, malls, anywhere the public gathers and where is the money going to come from to pay for the schools protection? When someone shoots an AR-15 at you, youre going down, its that simple. We are all sitting ducks waiting for the next mass shooting! Meanwhile, all the NRA really cares about is money lets not overlook how much money the NRA receives from gun manufacturers. ... Its so greedy its sick. The NRA really does have blood on their hands and its shameful. The fight is on for gun control and as a mother who doesnt want her children to face a crazy person with an assault weapon I say enough is enough. Our politicians need to do something and do it now!E.G. Yerian HomosassaHelp the disaffectedFollowing the horrific massacre of children at Sandy Hook Elementary, we hear and read earnestly held beliefs that the solution to school violence is the resuscitation of mandatory prayer in our public schools. But, in our pluralistic society, whose prayers and religious traditions do we bring into our schools and classrooms? How do we keep everyones right to pursue their relationship with their deity free from imposition of beliefs and dogma of the majority? And, how do we assure that parents rights to share with their children their religious culture are not trampled upon? I suspect there is no one simple solution that will cure whatever ills in our culture lead to such tragic, unthinkable events. But we can, and we must, fashion an array of efforts to deal with the disaffected and troubled in our society and to inculcate a reverence for the miracle of life to counter the culture of violence. In the end, Americans of all faiths share one common goal to never again see innocent children slaughtered.Elwood R. Harding Jr. Beverly HillsLearn from the lossAccording to the national institute of health statistics and the CDC, obesity has caused approximately 300,000 deaths per year in the USA, heart disease 599,413, cancer 567,628 and suicide 36,909. All preventable if we outlawed tobacco in all forms, sugar, fat and instituted mandatory exercise programs. Harsh? Maybe. However, add that to deaths by DUI and deaths by overdose on legal narcotics and the number of deaths caused by guns seem small in comparison. Yet, we are so quick to blame the guns! The shooter in the Newtown tragedy was by any account, mentally ill. His mother, who knew this, left guns easily accessible to him. She failed to protect him from himself and us from the horror he caused. As a nation, we fail to protect and treat the mentally ill. Onefourth of America is diagnosed with some form of mental illness. Many of these are children. National child abuse statistics report 3.3 million child abuse reports every year. Five children in this country die every day related to child abuse. How sad is that? Where is the public outcry for this? Yes, there are loopholes that can be closed to prevent unfortunate and senseless killings by the mentally ill, paroled convicted felons and the just plain mean. Licensed firearm dealers require background checks and mandatory waiting periods. Private gun sales must be stopped. Guns can be sold by them to anyone. We do not seem to be interested in treating the root causes of the evils that society suffers from the hand that rocks the cradle, steers the car, performs the tasks and yes, holds the gunsits us. The people. Go to church. Get back to god. Love each other. Protect the children. Respect life. Newtowns loss is our loss.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 Second AmendmentKudos to C. R. McDermott, who wrote of the proliferation of guns in our country and in our county. On the day of the Newtown tragedy, the sticker on the front page of the Chroniclesaid Gun Show. Like McDermott, I observed the signs along U.S. 19 advertising the gun show. That evening, commentator Mark Shields said his time in the Marines instilled in him the knowledge that the purpose of a gun was to kill, nothing else. Shields remark resonated with me. When I was young, I was drawn to the shooting galleries at carnivals, probably impressed by the eye/hand coordination factor. But, like with Shields, the Army gave me a different perspective. Qualifying on a carbine or a rifle might have been just more eye/hand coordination, but there was something sinister about the 45. The weapon was unwieldy and unpleasant and the cardboard target left nothing to the imagination. Like McDermott, I dont own a gun, havent touched one since the Army 60 years ago; my children have never touched a weapon. The NRA is complaining the president wants to take away our Second Amendment rights. Its not so. No mortal would ever dare oppose the Second Amendment, which enjoys a special magic. It states, A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Our founding fathers are considered prescient. The structure of the government they crafted still works a couple of centuries later. But the Second Amendment was about muskets. The Founding Fathers werent sufficiently prescient to envision assault weapons. A well regulated militia is of course a good idea. Switzerland gave young men guns but the government kept the ammunition, to be used only during training. The NRA holds us to the words of the Constitution but maybe we can play that game. The Constitution states the people have the right to keep and bear arms, but it doesnt spell out the right to ammunition. It may be an approach we could take without trampling on the sacred Second Amendment.Mary B. Gregory HomosassaDont abuse privilegeI served my country to protect our freedom, not our failure. I strongly urge you to never vote to raise our nations debt limit without enacting fundamental spending cuts and management of Constitutional demands of essential spending needs. I, a plain old but accountable American citizen, am compelled to manage my fixed income and budget needs before wants. I suggest my executive and legislative leaders adhere to the same principles. I, and many, many, military servants since our nations inception, have provided you with the privilege of freedom. I suggest you use it wisely in your service as legislators to ensure that freedom is preserved and provided to our next generation. May God bless you, and the future of our America.Robert David Hummel Inverness Everything everyone loathes about Washington was present in the fiscal cliff bill just passed by Congress. It is 153 pages long; most members probably hadnt read all of it before voting on it; it was delivered in the middle of the night; it was loaded with pork the mothers milk (to mix a metaphor) of politicians and while the country is already swamped with massive debt, it contains massive giveaways to satisfy interest groups and campaign contributors. Did I mention the bill raises taxes on top of the coming Obamacare taxes, but does nothing nothing to address the debt problem? As with previous congresses, this one (again) delayed the debt issue for two months and will have to face it again, along with what to do about the debt ceiling. Only expletives that cant be printed in a family newspaper accurately characterize this bunch, so Ill have to settle for pathetic, unprincipled and irresponsible. This fiscal cliff was a construct created by Congress. The additional revenue from productive businesses and individuals earning more than $400,000 and couples making $450,000 wont put more than the tiniest dent in the deficit and do nothing about the $16 trillion debt. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the ratio of new taxes to spending cuts is 41 to 1. This assumes the cuts actually materialize, which is unlikely. If they do, they will merely be window dressing. Weve seen it all before. Democrats play this game more effectively than a nimble-handed magician. According to Americans for Tax Reform, in 1982, congressional Democrats promised President Reagan $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax hikes. Reagan agreed. He got the tax hikes immediately, but had his political pocket picked when Democrats never came through with the spending cuts. It was the same with President George H.W. read my lips, no new taxes Bush. In 1990, ... Bush agreed to $2 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax hikes. The tax hikes went through ... Not a single penny of the promised spending cuts actually happened. Democrats run this play so often you would think by now Republicans might have devised a better defense. But just like the smear that Republicans are antiwoman because they oppose spending tax dollars on free contraceptives and abortion, or lack compassion for the poor because they oppose increasing federal programs that dont actually help the poor become less so, Republicans get trapped into voting to increase taxes in exchange for more empty promises to cut spending ... eventually. And the country is the one that loses. Conservatives sent a large number of tea party members to the House in the 2010 election, hoping to fix government. It hasnt worked because the political culture there has been contaminated by an untreatable virus and even those with the best intentions soon acquire the infection. Eighty-five Republicans voted for the monstrous bill (151 stood on principle and voted against it) because their leaders said that if they didnt it would hurt the partys chances in the next election. Think of how the media would treat them. One didnt have to be in the room to hear what was said because its always the same. Give up your principles because the next election is paramount. And after the next election and the one after it, nothing changes. The country should make up its mind. Do we want a government that lives within the boundaries of the Constitution limited, financially stable and spending only on what the Constitution says it should or, do we want a nation whose initials should be changed to ATM, dispensing goodies to any and all without regard to the financial health and welfare of this and future generations? Passage of this bill seems to indicate the choice has been made and ATM has won. It is a sorry affair for which we, and future generations, will be sorry, indeed.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com.

You may disapprove of the easily available technology that lets people chat to distant friends from the table behind you at the restaurant, or allows drivers to text when theyre supposed to be paying attention to the road. But technology also has made it possible for the sun to shine on much of what elected officials and others transacting the publics business are up to, often in real time. Regularly scheduled meetings of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners and the Citrus County School Board are streamed live on the Internet and archived for later viewing, as are a selection of other public body meetings. On a larger scale, statewide task forces often open up free phone conference lines for members of the public to listen to meetings, and both houses of the Florida Legislature post and archive meeting and hearing videos online. Right around the corner, theres another public meeting available through free teleconferencing. Citrus Countys Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) focuses on long-range transportation and transportation capital improvement plans. On Wednesday, Jan. 9, the TPO will hear from its management consultant about the benefits of merging with another county to create a regional body with greater clout in attracting federal dollars for local transportation projects. The meeting will be a precursor to the in-person TPO meeting scheduled for the following day at the Inverness Government Center. If you cant get to the meetings of those doing the publics business, at least check to see if you can watch or listen while they are occurring. If that doesnt work with your schedule, access the archived audio or video recordings. The technology exists, so take advantage of it. As responsible citizens, we need to pay attention to those doing the publics business. Its part of holding our public officials accountable.

The same old rhetoric, with the same result more people buying more guns. A suggestion: Treat gun ownership like car ownership. 1. All guns must be registered (exclude antiques, black-powder reproductions, and those manufactured over 75 years ago). Register them by going to a police station or gun shop. There should be simple form and no fee. 2. If a gun is sold in Florida, the form must be updated; if out-of state, it must go through a transfer agent. 3. If you take a gun outside your home and its loaded, you must have a carry permit. Itll cost you $100 if you are caught (say in a traffic stop), $500 if it happens twice, and confiscation thereafter. 4. If you want a carry permit, you must demonstrate your ability to shoot a gun. You must competently load/unload the firearm, be familiar with the laws of Florida, and be able to shoot. Say, a minimum of 20 shots fired at a 2-foot circle at 15 feet for a pistol and 50 feet for a rifle attaining a score of 15 (15 shots within the circle with the other 5 must be within a 3-foot circle). A test (like a drivers written test) will be available if you dont want to take a course. Guns kept in the home must be registered, but their owners need not be if they never take them out of the home. Guns must be locked up at all times when not in the possession of their owner or a licensed person when outside of the home. A trigger lock or gun safe is what Im referring to. And, most important, a carry permit should be valid in all 50 states, just like drivers licenses. This will not end our nationwide problem; just get us a little closer to a reasonable solution. Drunks still drive cars.David Weiser HernandoTaxing gun ownersNational Rifle Association executive vicepresident Wayne La Pierre called on Congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. His outpouring was in response to the hue and cry following the Newtown, Conn. schoolhouse murder of 26 individuals, including 20 first-grade students. La Pierre is upset because, as a result of the terrorist using an assault rifle, many influential people across the country are calling for a ban of such weapons. However, in all likelihood a bill banning any kind gun will be hard to pass; maybe impossible, given that the NRA has lots and lots of money, which has been used for decades to elect a bunch of sitting congressmen. Bolstering security in every single school in this nation is costly, to say the least, and so are the cleanups post-massacre, not to mention the lawsuits that follow. So, instead of a ban on such as AR-15s, Congress could pass a law allowing the collection of perennial taxes and fees on each privately-owned gun, like states do with property taxes and vehicle license fees. Moreover, like with automobiles, Congress could mandate that gun owners carry insurance enough to cover the costs of future mass shootings, whether they occur within schools or without. Now, why do I think the above would reduce our nations private gun load? Because if I was an owner of an assortment of guns, the cost of keeping them would stick in my craw, and Id likely get rid of all but one of them, starting with the assault rifle.James McIntosh LecantoSignificantJudi Siegals article Jewish influences and Christmas was interesting and well researched. However, she, like most of the people in the world, missed the significance of Christmas. It is not the shopping at department stores, eating candy or ice cream, singing about a White Christmas, or watching a nice little movie about people developing a better relationship at Christmas. Christmas is significant because a loving God used His chosen people, the Jews, to send a Savior, His Son, into a lost and dying world. Yes, Jesus was a Jew but His sinless life, His death, burial, resurrection, ascension into Heaven, and His promised return for His church is the reason for Christmas. All these other items are nice but would be nothing but a wintertime festival without the fact that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah), promised by all the Old Testament (Jewish) prophets.W. Ray Kelley, Ed.D pastor, First Christian Church InvernessThe numbers speakIn 2012, this many kids died from 1. Starvation 15,000,000. 2. Car accidents 830,000. 3. Drowning 175,000. 4. Home accidents 2,800. 5. Cancer 2,300. 6. Abuse/neglect 1,500. 7. Gun accidents 500. 8. School shootings 23. Want to save children? Feed them. There is no need for stricter gun control, or more spending on school police security.Tom Restivo Inverness Stop complainingSolution for Citrus County; I wish everybody would just stop complaining about Sheriff Dawsy, the school board, the county commissioners. Ive lived in this county since 1996 and I have not seen anybody do their job as professional as the superintendent of schools, Sheriff Dawsy, the county commissioners. The problem is, all you people that moved down here have nothing better to do than complain. You sit home and thats all you do is complain, complain, complain. If you dont like the situation in Citrus County, I have the best solution for you: Pack your bags and move to where you came from. Leave our county alone.Working as a teamWhy do people assume when two or three sheriffs cars are parked with officers talking, that theyre goofing off? That is like an office boss who thinks employees are just gabbing in the hallway. It could be official business conversation. Perhaps the deputies are planning an operation. They could be talking over what they have seen that is important for enforcement or crime prevention. Even some socializing is good for the officers to get to know one another and work as a team. Some break time is reasonable for productive and happy employees. And incidentally, I think the helicopters one of the best tools the sheriffs office has for observation.Coal not radioactiveThis is (in) reference (to) the Sunday, Dec. 23, Sound Off labeled Radioactive. The person who called that in needs to remember that the cooling towers at the power plant are for the coal plants, not for the nuclear plant.

Ice climb Associated PressJason Chapman, left, Corey Hetrick and Eric Henderson, climb an ice-covered silo on a farm west of Cedar Falls, Iowa. Climbers have been scaling the silo, an idea started by University of Northern Iowa physical education instructor Don Briggs, each winter since 2001. Lone gray wolf still on the prowlFRESNO, Calif. After tracking him for a year, California wildlife officials said the lone gray wolf who migrated from Oregon likes to travel more than most. Since he took off from his pack in northeast Oregon the wolf has traveled more than 3,000 miles. Scientists call him OR-7 because he was the seventh wolf in Oregon to be outfitted with a GPS tracking collar. Its why wildlife officials have been able to keep up with him as he follows migrating deer around the northeastern corner of the California. Scientists said he might be looking for a new pack or a mate. Karen Kovacs, a state wildlife program manager, said the chances of him finding either are slim. Most gray wolves stay within 100 miles of where they were born.Town said pigs in home must goESSEX, Vt. A Vermont woman considers her pigs to be pets, but town officials said theyre farm animals and have no business living in a residential neighborhood. The zoning board in Essex has given Florence Gruber and Alan Tsefrekas until Jan. 22 to remove an estimated 30 to 40 miniature potbellied pigs from their home. Gruber told the board Thursday that her pigs use litter boxes and that the adult animals weigh 50 to 100 pounds. Shes given them names like Larry, Nadia, Olive and Snow White Sleepy Girl. The Burlington Free Press reported neighbors told the board the pigs must go. Gruber said the pigs are up for adoption.Condo fire kills two, injures fourCHELMSFORD, Mass. A fast-moving fire tore through a northeastern Massachusetts condominium building, killing a couple in their late 60s or early 70s and injuring four of their relatives, including a 7-year-old boy who suffered serious burns, state Fire Marshal Stephen Coan said Sunday. The fire in Chelmsford began at about 11 p.m. Saturday. Coan said he believes the fire started accidentally in the couples home on the top floor of the four-story building, one of several in the complex. The victims names havent been released. Coan said the man who died used a wheelchair, which impeded efforts to get him out of the condo. Fire officials said two adults and two children related to the couple were visiting them when the fire began. The boy was flown by helicopter to a Boston hospital to be treated for serious burns, while the others were taken to local hospitals. The boys condition wasnt available Sunday. Coan said firefighters rescued several other residents of the top floor from their balconies.

Disease kills five babies in MexicoYAJALON, Mexico Authorities in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas said a bacterial disease has killed five babies and sickened 41 others in a remote indigenous community that is experiencing a wave of intense cold and rains. Chiapas health department said Sunday in a statement that residents of Emiliano Zapata in the municipality of Yajalon have been urged to stay in their homes and avoid contact with others to prevent the spread of the bacteria that is causing the infection, which is characterized by coughing and fever. Authorities are looking into whether it is whooping cough. Local officials said residents lack access to health care because of the remoteness and marginalization of their mountain community, and poor weather conditions have facilitated the spread of the disease. The statement said health officials have confirmed the death of five babies and the sickening of 41 infants younger than 1 year old. Cameron wants to stay PM until 2020LONDON David Cameron said he wants to stay on as British prime minister until 2020, calling his agenda of reforms enough to keep him busy through another term. The prime ministers remarks to the Sunday Telegraph newspaper come a day before he and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg publish a midterm review of how their coalition government, formed in 2010, has fared. Relations between Camerons Conservative Party and Cleggs Liberal Democrats have become strained over disagreements on austerity measures, political reforms and other matters. Calling his enormous reform agenda enough to keep us all busy, Cameron said he wants to fight the next election, win the next election and serve. Britains next general election is scheduled for 2015.Twitter insult brings 2-year sentenceKUWAIT CITY Kuwaiti media said a social media activist has been sentenced to two years in prison for a Twitter post deemed insulting to the Gulf nations ruler. Authorities across the Western-allied Gulf Arab states have sharply increased crackdowns on perceived dissent among bloggers and others using social media. The sentence passed Sunday in Kuwait is not the harshest in region, but is likely to bring further denunciations from international rights groups. Several websites, including the pro-government Al-Watan newspaper, reported the sentence against 26-year-old Rashed al-Enezi, who was accused of insulting Kuwaits emir in a Twitter post. World BRIEFS From wire reports President Obamas second inauguration not as exciting as first Associated PressWASHINGTON Four years and one re-election after Barack Obama became Americas first black president, some of the thrill is gone. Yes, the inauguration of a U.S. president is still a big deal. But the ceremony Washington will stage in a few weeks wont be the heady, historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly 2 million people flocked to the National Mall to see Obama take the oath of office. This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obamas public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, Jan. 21. There certainly will not be the sort of exultation you saw four years ago, said Mike Cornfield, a George Washington University political science professor. One reason why, Cornfield said, is it simply lacks the dramatic transfer of power from one president to the next. This is not a change that commands peoples interest automatically, Cornfield said. Its a confirmation of power. Even Obama acknowledges hes already, shall we say, a little washed-up the second time around. I think that a lot of folks feel that, Well, hes now president. Hes a little grayer. Hes a little older. Its not quite as new as it was, the president often told supporters while campaigning for re-election. His inaugural committee has scaled back to three days of festivities, instead of four. Some changes are on account of the slowly recovering economy and a desire by planners to ease the security burden on law enforcement. But they also reflect a realization that the thrill for Obamas second inauguration burns a little weaker. There are only two official inaugural balls this year, both at the Washington Convention Center, rather than 10 official balls at multiple locations around town. There will be a parade, but its expected to be smaller, too; about 130 groups and 15,000 people marched down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House in 2009. Associated PressCAIRO Egypts minority Christians were celebrating their first Christmas after the election of an Islamist president and a new pope and following adoption of a constitution many argue has an Islamist slant. Christians gathered in Cairos main cathedral Sunday for Midnight Mass on the eve of Orthodox Christmas led by their new pope. Pope Tawadros II was elected in November to replace longtime Pope Shenouda III, who died in March after 40 years as the leader of the church. Islamist President Mohammed Morsi called Tawadros with Christmas greetings and sent one of his aides to the Christmas Mass. Concerned for their future and their ancient heritage in Egypt, some Copts are reportedly considering leaving the country. As Egypt struggles with the role of religion in society, many Copts are aligning themselves with moderate Muslims and secular Egyptians who also fear the rise of Islamic power. Amir Ramzy, a Coptic Christian and a judge in Cairos court of appeals, said Christmas is a chance to retreat and pray for a better Egypt. Christians are approaching Christmas with disappointment, grief and complaints, fearing not only their problems but Egypts situation in general, Ramzy said. During the reign of (ousted President Hosni) Mubarak and the (military rulers), mainly Christians were facing problems, but now with the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, each and every moderate Egyptian is facing problems. In one of his first public messages after his enthronement, Tawadros said the ouster of Mubarak opened the way for a larger Coptic public role, encouraging them to participate in the nations evolving democracy. Egypts Coptic Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Egypts 85 million people, have long complained of discrimination by the state and the countrys Muslim majority. Clashes with Muslims have occasionally broken out, sparked by church construction, land disputes or Muslim-Christian love affairs. Following the ouster of Mubarak in 2011, sectarian violence rose, and attacks on churches sent thousands of Coptic protesters into the streets. A protest in October 2011 was violently quelled by the countrys military rulers, leaving 26 people dead and sparking further outrage. Ereny Rizk, 34, whose brother George died in that incident, said it was the second Christmas without him, but that the election of a new pope has raised her spirits.

While superstorm Sandy did highly visible damage to homes, boardwalks and roads, it also walloped the Northeastern fishing industry, whose workers are hoping for a small piece of any future disaster assistance that Congress might approve. The storm did millions of dollars worth of damage to docks, fish processing plants and restaurants. But it also caused millions more in lost wages to boat employees who couldnt work for two to three weeks, to truck drivers who had nothing to transport, and to other assorted industries that service commercial fishing. The $9.7 billion measure to fund the National Flood Insurance program, passed by Congress on Friday, did not include anything for the fishing industry; a bill the Senate passed in December would have allocated $150 million for that purpose. Some of the worst damage to fisheries in the region occurred at the Belford Seafood Cooperative on the Raritan Bay shoreline in Middletown, where the pounding waves destroyed a 75-foot-long dock, gutted a popular restaurant, and ripped away all five garage doors and parts of the exterior of office and storage buildings. The co-ops manager, Joe Branin, estimates the damage at close to $1 million. We went three weeks before we were able to pack a fish, said Branin, whose business was still without electricity in mid-December. We lost almost all our equipment. It was three weeks before anybody could do anything. Fishermen hope for help with storm losses The thrill is gone Associated PressThe Belford fishing port, in Middletown, N.J., sustained nearly $1 million in damages dfrom superstorm Sandy, some of which its owners hope to recoup through federal storm aid.

Certainly, No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama would have to play nothing less than a classic to live up to all the hype for Monday nights BCS championship. Before either team stepped on the field in balmy South Florida, this was shaping up as one of the most anticipated games in years, a throwback to the era when Keith Jackson & Co. called one game a week, when it was a big deal for teams from different parts of the country to meet in a bowl game, when everyone took sides based on where they happened to live. North vs. South. Rockne vs. Bear. Rudy vs. Forrest Gump. The Fighting Irish vs. the Crimson Tide. College footballs two most storied programs, glorified in movie and song, facing off for the biggest prize. Its definitely not any other game, said Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley. For the Crimson Tide (12-1), this is a chance to be remembered as a full-fledged dynasty. Alabama will be trying to claim its third national championship in four years and become the first school to win back-toback BCS titles, a remarkable achievement given the ever-increasing parity of the college game and having to replace five players from last years title team who were picked in the first two rounds of the NFL draft. To be honest, I think this team has kind of exceeded expectations, coach Nick Saban said Sunday. If you look at all the players we lost last year, the leadership that we lost ...

After 16 hours of tense talks, the NHL and its players finally achieved their elusive deal early Sunday morning, finding a way to restart a sport desperate to regain momentum and boost its prominence. Ending a bitter dispute that wiped out a large part of the hockey season for the third time in less than two decades, the league and its union agreed to the framework of a 10-year labor contract that will allow a delayed schedule to start later this month. On the 113th day of a management lockout and five days before the leagues deadline for a deal, the bleary-eyed sides held a 6 a.m. news conference to announce there will be a season, after all. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and union head Donald Fehr both appeared drained, wearing sweaters and not neckties, when they stood side by side at the hotel and announced labor peace.

They are also 4-1 in District 6A-6, the only loss a 56-46 setback at West Port Dec. 11. West Port remains unbeaten at 4-0 in district play, with Brooksville Central in third at 2-2. Bottom line: The winner of Fridays game will be the top seed in the 6A-6 tournament. One of Citrus greatest strengths is its ability to create offense with its pressure defense. The Wolf Pack, however, have proven adept at handling pressure, so expect the Canes to change up and use it sparingly.

B2MONDAY, JANUARY7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBASKETBALL lane and dishing passes to Shenelle Toxen, Treleasha Simmons, Micah Jenkins and Lindsay Connors. Citrus which beat Lecanto Dec. 18, making it 5-0 against county foes versus West Port is the premiere girls game this week, but there are others that may be equally important. Crystal River has stumbled into the seasons second half. The Pirates were in a position to take command of 5A-7 when it hosted Dunnellon last Friday, a team they had beaten 52-49 on Nov. 27 at Dunnellon. It seemed Crystal River would prevail, leading by 15 with just over a minute left in the third quarter and by a dozen going into the fourth. But the Pirates were embarrassed, allowing the resilient Tigers whose offense was supplied almost solely by Tanika Jacksons 43 points to finish with a 26-6 fourth-quarter run that gave them a 59-51 triumph. That left a three-way tie for first in 5A-7, with the Pirates, Dunnellon and Tavares all 4-2 and Brooksville Nature Coast one game back at 3-3. Crystal Rivers failure to assert itself in a major conference game revealed a weakness in the Pirates play. The 3point shooting by Katelyn Hannigan and Megan Wells, a major part in getting good looks near the basket for Jasmyne Eason, was ineffective, and the defensive efforts aimed at just stopping Jackson failed miserably. These issues must be addressed, and quickly. Crystal River hosts Lecanto in a nonconference match Monday, then goes on the road for a game at 5A-7 rival Eustis on Tuesday. The latter could be dangerous; remember, the Pirates were ambushed in a district road game at Nature Coast 44-33 Dec. 4. Crystal River also hosts Nature Coast on Friday, which means this could be a definitive week for the Pirates. The nondistrict game between a stumbling Crystal River and Lecanto, which seems to have recovered from a midseason crisis with two big victories in the Holiday Tournament over North Marion and Gibbs, will be interesting. The Panthers raised their overall record to 6-11. Playing without two senior starters who have left the team, Lecanto is adjusting and it showed, particularly against Gibbs, which entered the Holiday Tournament with a 9-5 record. The Panthers trailed by 11 entering the fourth quarter, but outscored the Gladiators 20-6 for a 46-43 triumph. The only senior starter remaining for Lecanto is Marie Buckley, which means coach Brittany Szunko must get her young team to produce for four quarters the way it did in the final quarter against Gibbs. The Panthers are out of the regular-season title race in 6A-6 with a 1-4 mark, but that doesnt leave them out of district tournament contention. There is potential, if it can be harvested. Seven Rivers Christian has a busy week with four games, but the most important is the first, at 2A-3 foe Gainesville Cornerstone Academy Tuesday. It shouldnt be that difficult for the Warriors; Cornerstone lost to Leesburg First Academy a team Seven Rivers beat 49-3. Then again, Seven Rivers has lost three of its last four, suffering a 68-42 defeat against Ocala St. John, the top contender for the title in 2A-3. Should Warriors coach Gary Dreyer get his team functioning to take advantage of their greatest attributes (read inside game with the Zachar sisters), they could be, and should be, dangerous.

One person said the sides were still putting the finishing touches on the contract for Marrone to sign. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because there has not been an official announcement. Marrone will replace Chan Gailey, who was fired Dec. 31, a day after the Bills closed their second consecutive season with a 6-10 record and extended the NFLs longest active playoff drought to 13 seasons.

SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, JANUARY7, 2013 B3 Associated PressPGA tour photographer Stan Badz shoots the flag on the 11th green Sunday as it tilts in the wind before the first round at the Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii. a lot of work to be done, but the basic framework of the deal has been agreed upon. Lawyers will spend the next few days drafting a memorandum of agreement. The stoppage led to the cancellation of at least 480 games the exact length of the curtailed schedule hasnt been determined bringing the total of lost regular-season games to a minimum 2,178 during three lockouts under Bettman. The agreement, which replaces the deal that expired Sept. 15, must be ratified by the 30 team owners and approximately 740 players. Hopefully, within just a very few days, the fans can get back to watching people who are skating, and not the two of us, Fehr said. Fehr became executive director of the NHL Players Association in December 2010 after leading baseball players through two strikes and a lockout. Players conceded early on in talks, which began in June, that they would accept a smaller percentage of revenue, and the negotiations were about how much lower. It was a battle, said Winnipeg Jets defenseman Ron Hainsey, a key member of the unions bargaining team. Players obviously would rather not have been here, but our focus now is to give the fans whatever it is 48 games, 50 games the most exciting season we can. With much of the money from its $2 billion, 10-year contract with NBC back loaded toward the Stanley Cup playoffs in the spring and now perhaps early summer the league preferred to time the dispute for the start of the season in the fall. Management made its decision knowing regularseason attendance rose from 16,534 in 2003-04 to 16,954 in 2005-06 and only seven teams experienced substantial drops. The lockout could wipe out perhaps $1 billion in revenue this season, given about 40 percent of the regular-season schedule wont be played. And while the stoppage was major news in Canada, it was an afterthought for many American sports fans. At downtown Detroits Rub BBQ Pub, manager Chris Eid said he was ecstatic when he heard the news. He said the settlement was a big topic of conversation among his afternoon customers. Everyone misses hockey, Eid said. Hockeys first labor dispute was an 11-day strike in 1992 that led to 30 games being postponed. Bettman, a former NBA executive under David Stern, became the NHL commissioner in February 1993. He presided over a 103-day lockout in 1994-95 that ended with a deal on Jan. 11, then a 301day lockout in 2004-05 that made the NHL the first major North American professional sports league to lose an entire season. The NHL obtained a salary cap in the agreement that followed that dispute and now wanted more gains. It was concessionary bargaining right from the beginning, Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan said. As the players, you kind of understand that and you accepted that. As much as you didnt want to, we understand that the nature of professional sports has kind of changed with the last couple CBAs starting with football and basketball. This deal was reached with the assistance of Scot Beckenbaugh of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, a veteran of the 2004-05 NHL talks, then Major League Soccers negotiations in 2010 and NFL and NBA talks the following year. Beckenbaugh spent Friday walking back and forth between the leagues office and the hotel where players were staying, meeting with each side to set up the final talks. The NHLs revenue of $3.3 billion last season lagged well behind the NFL ($9 billion), Major League Baseball ($7.5 billion) and the NBA ($5 billion), and the deal will lower the hockey players percentage from 57 to 50 owners originally had proposed 46 percent. This was the third lockout among the major U.S. sports in a period of just over a year. A four-month NFL lockout ended in July 2011 with the loss of only one exhibition game, and an NBA lockout caused each teams schedule to be cut from 82 games to 66 last season. As part of the deal:Players will receive $300 million in transition payments over three years to account for existing contracts, pushing their revenue share over 50 percent at the start of the deal.Players gained a defined benefit pension plan for the first time.The salary cap for this season will be $70.2 million before prorating to adjust for the shortened season, and the cap will drop to $64.3 million in 2013-14 the same amount as 2011-12. There will be a salary floor of $44 million in those years.Free agents will be limited to contracts of seven years (eight for those re-signed with their former club).Salaries within a contract may not vary by more than 35 percent year to year, and the lowest year must be at least 50 percent of the highest year.There were no changes to eligibility for free agency and salary arbitration.The threshold for teams to release players in salary arbitration will increase from $1.75 million to $3 million.Each team may use two buyouts to terminate contracts before the 2013-14 or 2014-15 seasons for twothirds of the remaining guaranteed income. The buyout will be included in the players revenue share but not the salary cap.The minimum salary will remain at $525,000 this season and will rise to $750,000 by 2021-12.Either side may terminate the deal after the 201920 season.Revenue sharing will increase to $200 million annually and rise with revenue.An industry growth fund of $60 million will be funded by the sides over three years and replenished as need.Participation of NHL and its players in the 2014 Sochi Olympics will be determined later in discussions also involving the International Olympic Committee and the International Ice Hockey Federation. Associated PressKAPALUA, Hawaii On the third attempt at starting the PGA Tour season, Matt Kuchar stepped to the 10th tee at Kapalua and could barely hear his name through the wind. When he finally steadied himself, a gust blew his golf ball off the tee. And then it happened again. We had a powwow and took us five or six minutes to laugh it off and say, Were really going to go through with this? Kuchar said. Made the best of it. But not for long. Just more than one hour after the Tournament of Champions finally got under way, it was scrapped again with all the scores erased. Most golf tournaments end on Sunday. This one couldnt even get started Sunday. The wind came roaring down the Plantation Course at Kapalua again, and it left officials no choice but to stop play and try to start again. With more manageable wind in the forecast, the plan was to play 36 holes Monday and finish with 18 holes Tuesday. That was good news for Ben Curtis. He had birdie putts on the first two holes and was 5-over par. Its crazy. Thats the only way to describe it, Curtis said. Ive never hit two greens in regulation at the start and walked away at 5 over. But hey. At least we had to try. And they will try again. Rickie Fowler will hit the opening tee shot of the 2013 season on Monday for the third time this week. For those wondering why this tournament keeps getting postponed, an hour of television Sunday was all the evidence they needed. Ian Poulter posed over his 4-iron shot to the 13th green and was so stunned to see it come up short that he looked at his small gallery for the longest time, repeating loud enough for them to hear that he was only 138 yards from the front of the green. Off to his right, Charlie Beljan had a search party stomping through high grass to the right of the 10th fairway looking for both his tee shots. He had a 15-foot putt for triple bogey when play was stopped. Moments later, a call came over the radio for a ruling on the 12th green. Scott Stallings was trying to tap in a 2-foot putt when a gust blew his ball 8 feet away. We need to try to put the show on, Poulter said. Hyundai spent a lot of money. We want to play. Fans want to see us play. TV wants to see us play. Were backed into a corner. I dont think they understand how windy it really is. Now theyve seen it. It was comical from the start, with Kuchar having to tee it up three times before he could hit, and removing his cap the rest of the way. Jonas Blixt had a 1-foot par putt on the 10th hole and took about two minutes. He had to wait as a cup and someones hat blew across the green. Blixt has played 10 holes over two days in these conditions in 1-under par. None of it counts, but the Swede learned one thing. Theres no instruction book for this, Blixt said. You just go by instincts. The Tournament of Champions was supposed to finish on Monday, the day it now hopes to start. The tour insists on a 54-hole tournament, no matter how complicated that will be with the next tournament, the Sony Open, starting on Thursday in Honolulu. Andy Pazder, the tours chief of operations, said television and operational equipment can only be transported to Oahu on a barge that takes 16 hours on a good day. Defending champion Steve Stricker lounged on a sofa in the dining room watching the NFL playoffs with Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker. Along with Bubba Watson, they have yet to tee off all week. Fowler made it through eight holes Friday and five holes Sunday. But what a wild hour of golf that turned out to be. It seems like the first day was a cake walk compared to today, Webb Simpson said. But you know, theyre trying to get us to play some golf. Matt and I were hanging in there, and it was fun. But you dont want to see stupid things happen. I think that was what they were starting to see. Carl Pettersson began his round by hitting his tee shot into the native grass for a lost ball and a triple bogey. Kyle Stanley had 88 yards to the 10th green and went with a punch 9-iron that sailed over the green. Curtis felt hopeless from the start. After a four-putt double bogey, he hit the green on the par-3 11th. Were walking halfway down and my caddie said, Hey, your ball is moving. And it rolled about another 5 feet, Curtis said. Before he had a chance to putt, a gust blew the ball to the left some more and went down a slope. He chipped up to about 15 feet and fourputted again. Poulter had to back off six times on a 10-foot birdie putt at the 11th hole. Two holes later, he had hit a beauty of a 4-iron, starting out to the right as the wind brought back toward the flag and it landed short. Thats not golf, Poulter said. I dont know what that is. You saw it. You cant pull a trigger. Youre taking 20 practice swings because you cant stand up. I guess what weve done is shown everyone its unplayable. In some respect, at least we hit a couple of shots. Three days of sitting in the hotel is not good. At least Ive warmed up for something. Im just not sure what Ive warmed up for.

NHLContinued from Page B1 Associated PressAndy Murray of Britain holds the winners trophy Sunday after winning the mens final match against Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6, 6-4 during the Brisbane International tennis tournament in Brisbane, Australia. Associated PressBRISBANE, Australia Andy Murray kicked off 2013 with a successful defense of his Brisbane International title, holding off Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov 7-6 (0), 6-4 on Sunday. The 21-year-old Dimitrov raced to a 4-1 lead in his first ATP World Tour final, but lost his nerve and was broken when serving for the set at 5-3. After getting back on serve, No. 3-ranked Murray saved a set point with an ace and forced a tiebreaker, which he dominated. In the second, Murray drilled a backhand into the net to give up a service break and a 4-3 lead to Dimitrov. He raised his game immediately to break back in a three-game roll, getting quick points from a backhand passing shot and a stunning return to set up a break point and a tying backhand winner down the line. Murray held at love for a 5-4 lead in a service game that lasted 56 seconds and then broke Dimitrov again to finish it off in 1 1/2 hours.Tipsarevic beats BautistaAgut to win Chennai OpenCHENNAI, India Second-seeded Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia won the Chennai Open title Sunday by beating Roberto BautistaAgut of Spain 3-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the final. The ninth-ranked Tipsarevic won his fourth ATP title against an opponent who was playing in his first tour final. It was the Spaniard, though, who had the better start, winning the first three games. Tipsarevic, who lost to Milos Raonic in last years final, dominated the second set and then broke early in the third. Bautista-Agut seemed to struggle with a leg injury and needed on-court treatment during the second set.Stephens beats Robson at Hobart InternationalHOBART, Australia American Sloane Stephens broke Laura Robsons service in the opening game and went on to beat the British player 6-4, 7-6 (4) in the first round of the Hobart International on Sunday.

The win delays star linebacker Lewis retirement for at least another week as Baltimore (11-6) heads to top-seeded Denver (13-3) next Saturday. The Broncos beat the Ravens 34-17 three weeks ago. I wanted Denver, Boldin said, because they beat us. Well make it different. And he wanted the Broncos because it prolongs the Ravens pursuit of their first NFL title since the 2000 season, when Lewis won the first of two Defensive Player of the Year awards. I came to Baltimore to win a championship, Boldin added. We all did. Lewis, who made 13 tackles Sunday, ended his last home game in Baltimore at fullback, of all things, for the final kneel-down. He then went into a short version of his trademark dance before being mobbed by teammates. He followed with a victory lap, his right arm, covered by a brace, held high in salute to the fans after playing for the first time since tearing his right triceps on Oct. 14 against Dallas. My only focus was to come in and get my team a win. Nothing else was planned, the 37-year-old Lewis said. Its one of those things, when you recap it all and try to say what is one of your greatest moments. I knew how it started, but I never knew how it would end here in Baltimore. To go the way it did today, I wouldnt change nothing. He would like nothing more than to change past results against Manning, who was 2-0 in the postseason against Baltimore while with the Colts. The loss ended the Colts turnaround season in which they went from 2-14 to the playoffs in coach Chuck Paganos first year in Indianapolis (11-6). Pagano missed 12 weeks while undergoing treatment for leukemia and returned last week. He was upbeat following the defeat to the team he served as an assistant coach for four years. The foundation is set, and we said we were going to build one on rock and not on sand, Pagano said. You weather storms like this and you learn from times like this. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who went 9-3 as interim coach, was absent Sunday after being hospitalized with an undisclosed illness. Pagano said Arians is fine and would stay overnight for observation before rejoining the Colts on Monday. Quarterback coach Clyde Christensen called the plays, but Baltimores suddenly revitalized defense inspired by Lewis pending retirement, no doubt never let standout rookie QB Luck get comfortable. Its great making the playoffs, but you cant make mistakes and expect to beat a playoff team like we did, said Luck, who was sacked three times, Paul Kruger getting 2 1/2 of those. Well have to look back at those and hopefully fix them. Sundays victory enhanced the Ravens success rate in opening playoff games. Flacco now has won at least one postseason game in all five of his pro seasons, the only quarterback to do it in the Super Bowl era. His main target Sunday was Boldin, who had receptions of 50 and 46 yards, plus his 18-yard TD on a floater from Flacco in the corner of the end zone with 9:14 to go. I told (Flacco) before the game I was going to get 200 yards, Boldin said with a chuckle. Baltimore overcame the first two lost fumbles of the season by Ray Rice, too, as John Harbaugh became the only head coach in the Super Bowl era with wins in his first five playoff campaigns. Backup halfback Bernard Pierce rescued Rice with a 43-yard burst that led to Boldins touchdown, and ran for 103 yards. Flacco also connected with Dennis Pitta for a 20-yard TD and rookie Justin Tucker made a 23-yard field goal. Indys only points came on three field goals by Adam Vinatieri, from 47, 52 and 26 yards. Luck completed 28 of 54 passes for 288 yards. It was the most attempts by a rookie in a playoff game. (12-5) the lead. On Washingtons next series, Griffin reinjured the right knee he sprained about a month ago while trying to field a bad shotgun snap. The knee buckled badly, and the Seahawks recovered the fumble and kicked an insurance field goal. Kirk Cousins replaced Griffin, but Washington (107) was unable to come back. RG3 threw two 4-yard touchdown passes in his first career playoff game to give the Redskins a 14-0 lead before the Seahawks closed to 14-13 through three quarters. Griffin capped the Redskins only two drives of the first quarter against the NFL s top-rated scoring defense with short tosses to running back Evan Royster and tight end Logan Paulsen. The Seahawks allowed 15.3 points per game this season and the 14-point deficit was their largest of the season. The second quarter belonged to Seattle, with Wilson throwing a 4-yard TD pass to running back Michael Robinson and Steve Hauschka kicking a pair of field goals. Hauschkas 32-yard field goal 2:55 into the second quarter made in 14-3 and his second kick, a 29-yarder as the half expired, pulled the Seahawks with a point. The right-footed Hauschska was playing with a left ankle injury and limped off the field to the locker room. Seattle maintained its offensive efficiency starting the third quarter, driving 69 yards to the Redskins 1, but Lynch fumbled and Washingtons Jarvis Jenkins recovered. After forcing a Redskins punt, Wilson moved the Seahawks to the Washington 28, but overthrew Doug Baldwin in the end zone. Wilson was sacked on the next play, moving the ball back to the 37. With Hauschka limited, Seattle punted. Griffin was 10 of 17 for 84 yards, but after the first quarter he threw for only 16 yards plus an interception. He also ran three times for 12 yards. On the Redskins second drive of the game, the Redskins sensational rookie fell awkwardly while backpedalingon a pass and came up limping. But he stayed in the game. He sprained his right knee in Week 14 and sported a brace for the third straight game. Lynch rushed 14 times for 79 yards in the first half, including 41 on the drive which ended with his fumble. In the second quarter, he scooped up a Wilson fumble and raced for 19 yards, leading to the Seahawks touchdown. Rookie Alfred Morris, the leagues second-leading rusher, had 72 yards 34 of them on four carries during Washingtons opening drive that resulted in the TD pass to Royster. Paulsens touchdown catch finished off an 11-play, 54-yard drive in 5:58. Washingtons offense slowed in the second quarter, with two drives resulting in a punt and an interception by Seattle Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas. Seattle was moving the ball in the first quarter, but a promising drive ended when the Redskins Stephen Bowen and London Fletcher combined to sack Wilson on third-and-2. It was one of two sacks for the Redskins in the quarter. The playoff meeting between the two teams was the third, but first outside Seattle. The Seahawks won 20-10 in January 2006, and 35-14 in January 2008. Those were the last two postseason games played by the Redskins, who entered the playoffs on an NFC-best seven-game winning streak. Seattle came into the playoffs with a five-game winning streak, outscoring opponents 193-60. But they were 3-5 on the road and had lost eight straight road playoff games. Their only road playoff win came in their first postseason road game, Dec. 31, 1983, at Miami. Now they have another. RAVENSContinued from Page B1 SEAHAWKSContinued from Page B1

BCS NATIONALCHAMPIONSHIPCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, JANUARY7, 2013 B5 That said, its not a huge surprise to find Alabama playing for another title. Thats not the case when it comes to Notre Dame. Despite their impressive legacy, the Fighting Irish (12-0) werent even ranked at the start of the season. But overtime wins against Stanford and Pittsburgh, combined with three other victories by a touchdown or less, gave Notre Dame a shot at its first national title since 1988. After so many lost years, the golden dome has reclaimed its luster in coach Brian Kellys third season. It starts with setting a clear goal for the program, Kelly said. Really, what is it? Are we here to get to a bowl game, or are we here to win national championships? So the charge immediately was to play for championships and win a national championship. Both Notre Dame and Alabama have won eight Associated Press national titles, more than any other school. They are the bluest of the blue bloods, the programs that have long set the bar for everyone else even while enduring some droughts along the way. ESPN executives were hopeful of getting the highest ratings of the BCS era. Tickets were certainly at a premium, with a seat in one of the executive suites going for a staggering $60,000 on StubHub the day before the game, and even a less-thanprime spot in the corner of the upper deck requiring a payout of more than $900. This is, to me, the ultimate match-up in college football, said Brent Musberger, the lead announcer for ESPN. Kelly molded Notre Dame using largely the same formula that has worked so well for Saban in Tuscaloosa: a bruising running game and a stout defense, led by Heisman Trophy finalist Manti Teo. Its a little bit old fashioned in the sense that this is about the big fellows up front, Kelly said. Its not about the crazy receiving numbers or passing yards or rushing yards. This is about the big fellas, and this game will unquestionably be decided up front. While points figure to be at a premium given the quality of both defenses, Alabama appears to have a clear edge on offense. The Tide has the nations highest-rated passer (AJ McCarron), two 1,000-yard rushers (Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon), a dynamic freshman receiver (Amari Cooper), and three linemen who made the AP All-America team (first-teamers Barrett Jones and Chance Warmack, plus second-teamer D.J. Fluker). Thats football at its finest, said Teo, who heads a defense that has given up just two rushing touchdowns. Its going to be a great challenge, and a challenge that we look forward to. The Crimson Tide had gone 15 years without a national title when Saban arrived in 2007, the schools fifth coach in less than a decade (including one, Mike Price, who didnt even made it to his first game in Tuscaloosa). Finally, Alabama got it right. In 2008, Saban landed one of the greatest recruiting classes in school history, a group that has already produced eight NFL draft picks and likely will send at least three more players to the pros (including Jones). The following year, the coach guided Alabama to a perfect season, beating Texas in the title game at Pasadena. Last season, the Tide fortuitously got a shot at another BCS crown despite losing to LSU during the regular season and failing to even win its division in the Southeastern Conference. In a rematch against the Tigers, Alabama romped to a 21-0 victory at the Superdome. The all-SEC matchup gave the league an unprecedented six straight national champions, hastening the end of the BCS. It will last one more season before giving way to a four-team playoff in 2014, an arrangement that was undoubtedly pushed along by one conference hoarding all the titles under the current system. Lets be honest, people are probably getting tired of us, Jones said. We dont really mind. We enjoy being the top dog and enjoy kind of having that target on our back, and we love our conference. Obviously, wed rather not be a part of any other conference. This title game certainly has a different feel than last years. That was really kind of a weird national championship because it was a team we already played, Jones remembered. It was kind of another SEC game. It was in the South, and it just had a very SEC feel to it obviously. This year is much more like the 2009 game (against Texas) for me. Were playing an opponent that not only we have not played them, but no one we have played has played them. So you dont really have an exact measuring stick. In fact, these schools have played only six times, and not since 1987, but the first of their meetings is still remembered as one of the landmark games in college football history. Bear Bryant had one of his best teams at the 1973 Sugar Bowl, but Ara Parseghian and the Fighting Irish claimed the national title by knocking off top-ranked Alabama 24-23. If youre a long-time Notre Dame fan, you still remember Parseghians gutty call to throw the ball out of the end zone for a gameclinching first down. If you were rooting for the Tide, you havent forgotten a missed extra point that turned out to be the losing margin. Of course, these Alabama players arent concerned about what happened nearly four decades ago. For the most part, all they know is winning. Theres a lot of tradition that goes into Alabama football, Mosley said, and our plan is to keep that tradition alive. BCSContinued from Page B1 Associated PressMIAMI After decades when paying college athletes was thought to violate the spirit of amateurism, the enormous television revenue generated by sports football and basketball in particular and the long hours of work by the players have changed the debate. The head of the NCAA now supports a stipend for athletes to cover costs beyond tuition, books and fees, and both coaches in Mondays BCS championship between No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama spoke in support of the idea in the days before the game. The question is no longer whether to cut athletes a check, its how best to do that. I still think the overriding factor here is that these young men put in so much time with being a student and then their responsibilities playing the sport, that they dont have an opportunity to make any money at all, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said Sunday. I want them to be college kids, and a stipend will continue to allow them to be college kids. This seasons Irish will get scholarships worth about $52,000 per year and the school will receive $6.2 million for playing in the title game to go with the $15 million NBC reportedly pays just to televise the schools regular-season home games. NCAA President Mark Emmert believes it is time for a change. While Emmert draws a clear distinction between the $2,000 stipend he has proposed and play-forpay athletics, he unapologetically advocates for giving student-athletes a larger cut of a huge pie that is about to get even bigger. The NCAAs current mens basketball tournament agreement with CBS and Turner is worth an average of more than $770 million per year, and the current Bowl Championship Series television deal is worth $180 million per year. In October 2011, the NCAAs Division I Board of Directors approved a rule change that would give colleges the option of providing athletes with a $2,000 stipend for expenses not covered by scholarships. But many schools objected to the policy, and last January, the board delayed its implementation. Colleges worried about how the stipends would affect Title IX compliance and whether theyd be able to afford them. To help build more support, Emmerts latest proposal would make the funds need-based. In other words, lower-income students would get more money than wealthy ones. However it works out, Kelly sees stipends as inevitable. This is going to happen, Kelly said. Its just when is it going to happen? I think like minds need to get together and figure it out. Pay-for-play NCAA: Not if, but how JIMLITKE AP sports columnistThe final whistle of the national championship game also signals a new beginning. Its time to start saying goodbye to the Bowl Championship Series as we know it. The cartel hijacked the postseason in 1998 and despite a tweak here and a tuck there, kept it roughly the same during that run, despite facing more criticism than the replacement refs. Mercifully, though, the 201314 season, ending at the Rose Bowl next January, is guaranteed to be the last gasp. The most obvious change the season after that without going full Jim Mora on you will be PLAYOFFS??? Or to be more exact, a four-team mini-playoff in January 2015. The site is still to be chosen from among a half-dozen bids, and after that, the process will be open to all comers, the way the NFL chooses its Super Bowl cities. For plenty of us, that cant happen soon enough. I wont kid you, this system has been plenty good to us, Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood said as the second-ranked Crimson Tide wrapped up preparations in search of their third BCS title in the last four years. But I got a lot of calls and texts from friends on other teams who dont think its fair, Norwood added, with a quick glance over his shoulder to see if anyone else was listening in. Me, too. When I was in high school at DIberville (Miss.), the chance to play for a state title was everything. You could lose a game here and there, and not feel like your season was done. Its a lot fairer for everyone. College football wont be that democratic for a while. How fast and far bracket creep begins remains anyones guess. The current TV deal extends out a dozen years and most of the same guys who ran the last version of the BCS remain in charge. As noted above, they do not like to be bullied. Theres also nothing in the contract that even hints at expanding the format. But if the mini-playoff proves successful enough, and especially if theres some turnover at the top of the conferences, adding four more teams to the mix could come as early as a halfdozen years down the road. Anything beyond that, especially the 16-team playoff that would do college football justice, is no more than a pipe dream at the moment. Remember: It took a century or so of wrangling just to reach the threshold of a playoff. So for the moment, lets limit the discussion to the mini-playoff. The toughest adjustment could be the bowl committees themselves. The Rose, Sugar and Orange bowls have already been assured of spots in the national semifinal rotation, expected to be joined by the Fiesta Bowl and two other sites maybe Atlanta and Dallas. Weve got a semi every three years and eight other significant games, Orange Bowl CEO Eric Poms said. Were pretty happy with the road map. Few of the bowl committees further down the food chain are feeling that comfortable. There were 35 bowls this season and while TV ratings have generally held steady, a slight drop in attendance for the second straight year has some in the industry wondering whether theyve reached the saturation point. Im getting that question a lot, said Wright Waters, who heads the Football Bowl Association. My initial reaction is that as long as the bowls continue to market themselves as events, and not just games, and focus on gettingstrong regional matchups and competitive, compelling games, well be fine. Playoffs? Not yet, but finally on the way Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Alabama coach Nick Saban says hes not much for comedies. He prefers his movies to have a message, and part of his routine for getting his players ready to play in a big game has been to have them watch an inspirational film. Saban thought long and hard Sunday during his last news conference before the BCS championship game against No. 1 Notre Dame, but couldnt be sure what movie his LSU team watched before it beat Oklahoma to win the 2003 title. Maybe it was The Last Samurai, he said. The 2009 Alabama championship team that beat Texas in the Rose Bowl watched Remember the Titans, the Denzel Washington football flick. Last year, before the Crimson Tide beat LSU in New Orleans, Saban and his players watched Red Tails about the Tuskegee airmen. But I think the movie, regardless of whether it was The Last Samurai or whatever movie it was, really it was about the honor of the message was the honor of being all that you can be, that maybe that might be more important than winning or losing, and that your focus should be on that instead of the outcome, he said. Before Alabama played Notre Dame, the Crimson Tide were scheduled to watch Zero Dark Thirty, which chronicles the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. What, no Rudy? THE LINK: Frank Thomas had brushes with greatness at two of college footballs powerhouses, and achieved plenty of it himself. Thomas was a quarterback for Notre Dames Knute Rockne and started a 15year run as Alabamas coach in 1931, a year before a big country boy named Paul Bear Bryant came to play in Tuscaloosa. Bryant eventually returned to Tuscaloosa for a 25-year run as head coach, but didnt forget his coach. Coach Bryant had a feel for Notre Dame and I think a level of respect because of his coach, Frank Thomas, who he absolutely loved and thought was a great, great coach and referred back to him so many times, said Alabama athletic director Mal Moore, who played and coached under Bryant. Thomas, who died in 1954, won 81.2 percent of his games, four Southeastern Conference titles and a couple of national championships. His winning percentage isnt all that far behind Bryants (82.4 percent) or current coach Nick Saban (83.7, counting wins later vacated). SEVENTH HEAVEN: The Southeastern Conference has won the last six BCS titles, and Alabama is looking to make it No. 7. Crimson Tide center Barrett Jones said its hardly automatic, however, that an SEC team wins it all. That notion that SEC teams are head-and-shoulders above everyone else in the nation is even farfetched to him. There are some people that may be a little too-SECbiased. Dont quote me on that, but you probably will, Jones said. Certainly, dont get me wrong, I think the SEC is probably by a good margin the best conference. But that doesnt mean there arent other good teams out there. The SEC had another good postseason, going 5-3 in the bowls so far. Though losses by Florida and LSU were unexpected and two Big Ten-SEC matchups (South Carolina-Michigan and Georgia-Nebraska) werent as decisive as many expected. BK LIKE NICK: Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly is happy to be compared to Nick Saban. But, no, he hasnt spent much time buddying around with the Alabama coach. Well, Nick obviously has the reputation of being a great program builder, Kelly said Sunday. Hes defined himself, as only a few coaches ... have won the championships that he has. So I take that as a great personal compliment, as it relates to constructing football programs and putting winning football teams on the field. I would take that moniker any time. Asked if he had ever crossed paths with Saban, maybe at public appearances, during the time Kelly was at Division II Grand Valley State in Michigan and Saban was head coach for Michigan State, Kelly laughed. Public appearances for Nick? he said. Nick Saban, I got a chance to know him when he was at Toledo, a very short stint at Toledo, but I got a chance to know him through a couple of camps that I worked at, and got to know him better when he was at Michigan State. And I have a great deal of respect for him and followed his career, his path, and certainly when we see each other today, were reminded about where we started. We both started in the Mid-American Conference, so a lot of the times that we talk, we talk about the times back in Ohio and Michigan. Saban started his coaching career at Kent State, his alma mater, and Kellys first Division I job was at Central Michigan. WEST COAST TOUCH: Pac-12 officials will handle the BCS championship game. Alabama was tied third in the country in fewest penalties per game at 3.8 for 32.8 yards. Notre Dame was middle of the pack nationally. The Irish were tied for 51st at 5.7 penalties per game for 42.9 yards. Pac-12 officials have a reputation for being aggressive with the flags. Six of the 25 most penalized teams in major college football are from the Pac-12.

Associated PressPALM SPRINGS, Calif. The Award Season Express made its first stop of the new year in the middle of the desert a couple of hours east of Hollywood at the annual Palm Springs International Film Festival gala. A blast of Golden Globe nominees and Oscar hopefuls walked the press gauntlet Saturday night, including Naomi Watts (The Impossible), Helen Hunt and John Hawkes (The Sessions), Ben Affleck (Argo) and Arbitrage star Richard Gere, who received the nights so-called Chairmans Award. Great, Gere noted with more than a touch of sarcasm. Thats better than the Governors Award? he inquired, with a chuckle. Whats the pecking order of these awards? I want to know. Am I getting the best award? Im not going in unless Im getting the best award! Though the 63-year-old Gere has never received an Oscar nomination, there were previous Academy Award winners aplenty at the Palm Springs gala. Among them was Sally Field, the nights honoree for career achievement, including her hard-won role of Mary Todd in director Steven Spielbergs Lincoln. I still cant believe I got the role, Field replied, cracking a smile. Did I get it? Turning serious, she told the black-tie audience she was proud to be part of the film and happy to still be working. Im very lucky ... Next year itll be 50 years that Ive been in the business as a professional. Its been a wild ride, she said. This upcoming week, the Awards Season Express has a bit of a wild ride itself, with the Peoples Choice show, two critics awards ceremonies and Thursday mornings Oscar nominations. So how does the phrase Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper sound to the Silver Linings Playbook actor? That would be incredible, Cooper answered, explaining that he just may sleep through the predawn nomination announcements. Yeah, Im sure Ill get up, but maybe Ill be asleep. I dont know. And just three days after the Oscar nominations, its the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards a much, much friendlier show, exclaimed Hitchcock nominee Helen Mirren. And it has to do with those tables in still quite a small room, she explained. They havent allowed it to get enormous. ... Everybody table jumps and chats. Its always slightly naughty. The hosts are always naughty. I cant wait to have Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing it. Thats going to be such fun. Complete list of 2013 Palm Springs International Film Festival honorees: Argos Ben Affleck, Alan Arkin and Bryan Cranston received the Ensemble Performance Award.

Josh Brolin spent some of New Years Day and the following morning in a Southern California jail cell after getting arrested for misdemeanor public intoxication. Santa Monica Police Lt. Darrell Lowe said the actor was not given a citation for the Tuesday arrest, which means he likely wont have to appear in court. Lowe said Brolin was arrested just before midnight Jan.1, when officers found him heavily intoxicated on a Santa Monica sidewalk. He was booked into jail and released about six hours later after he had sobered up. Brolin is starring in the crime film Gangster Squad, which opens this week.Rare Beatles pics up for auctionLONDON Unpublished early color photographs of The Beatles first U.S. tour will be sold at a U.K. auction. The photos were taken during the rock bands 1964 visit to the U.S., when color film was expensive and most images of the group were in black and white. The collection of 65 slides contains many stage shots, including George Harrison with his legendary red Rickenbacker guitar and closeup portraits from a Las Vegas Sahara Hotel press conference and Las Vegas Convention Centre gig. The images were taken by Dr. Robert Beck, who died in 2002 and left them in an archive of photographs and slides in his Hollywood home. Omega Auctions said Sunday the images will be sold March 22. Justin Bieber Josh Brolin Spotlight onPEOPLE ENTERTAINMENT Page B6MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013Award-season hopefuls stop in Palm Springs Associated PressPASADENA, Calif. On his upcoming NBC comedy, Michael J. Fox will play a newscaster who had quit his job due to Parkinsons Disease but returns to work in the shows first episode because a new medical regimen has helped him control many of the diseases symptoms. It mirrors the life of the former Family Ties and Spin City star, who said last year that drugs have helped minimize the physical tics of Parkinsons and have enabled him to take on more acting jobs. The yet-to-be-named sitcom is a key piece of NBCs strategy to build upon a revival that has brought the network back from many years in the ratings wilderness. Show like The Voice and Revolution have made NBC the only one of the four biggest networks to gain in viewership over last season. Though its not definite, NBC is penciling Foxs comedy in for September on its low-rated Thursday schedule. The long-running Thursday comedy Rock ends its run on Jan. 31, and The Office will exit after a special one-hour episode this spring. In the family comedy, Foxs character will be the father of two teenage children and a younger boy, Jennifer Salke, the networks entertainment president, said Sunday. It will be set in New York City, and filmed there, too, she said. The real-life disease has left Fox an object of pityfueled admiration, yet Fox approaches his life and his work with a lot of irreverence, Salke said. Its a family show that has him dealing with work and office relationships as well as dealing with kind of his public persona, which is very real, she said. You see, he gets a standing ovation everywhere he shows up, and the idea that hes sort of been put up on this pedestal by the country and the world, really. Hes just a regular guy, who gets frustrated, who gets mad at having to sit at home. Fox is meeting this week with actresses who may be cast as his wife on the show. Fox has appeared in limited roles over the past few years, most notably as a lawyer in CBS The Good Wife. But its his track record as the star of two previous sitcoms that has NBC executives eagerly looking forward to the new show. He left ABCs Spin City in 2000 after four seasons, saying he hoped to help find a cure for Parkinsons. NBC focused this season on improving its standing earlier in the week, building from the popular Sunday night football franchise and a new fall edition of The Voice on Mondays and Tuesdays. The strategy worked better than executives envisioned, said Robert Greenblatt, NBC entertainment chairman. In the must-see days of Friends and Seinfeld, NBC was the king of Thursday nights. But its ratings are a fraction of what they were, as its current comedies havent matched critical acclaim with a large audience. Michael J.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, JANUARY7, 2013 B7 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Sebastian Vettel, who last November became the youngest ever Formula One Grand Prix driver to win three world championships, said, As a driver, your target is always to be with the most competitive team possible. As a bridge player, your target is always the number of tricks needed to make or to break a contract. When on defense, always ask yourself where your side might take those tricks what I call the defensive target. In this deal, how should East defend against three no-trump after West leads the club queen? West might have made a takeout double on the first round, which would have shown four spades and four or more clubs. His point-count was low, but if he could have found a fit with his partner, maybe his side could have done well. North was a trick too strong for his three-diamond rebid, but nothing else was better. And South went for the nine-trick game. It is common in no-trump to return your partners suit. (In a trump contract, this happens much less often.) Here, though, if East wins with his club ace and leads back the club nine, how many tricks will declarer take? Even if South is void in diamonds, he must have at least 10 winners: two hearts, seven diamonds and one club not good. The only chance for the defense is to cash four spade tricks immediately. East should take his club ace and shift to the spade queen. Here, East and West take the checkered flag. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Locked Up Abroad Drugs, Inc. The Cannabis industry. Drugs, Inc.

Even though we live several hours from his mother, she controls many of our familys decisions. My mother-in-law is our only living parent. I have tried many times to please her, without success. I often have the family over to our home and invite them to our summer cottage. I plan outings and shop for gifts. She doesnt drive, so I take her to the grocery and wherever else she needs to go. But in her eyes, I cannot do anything right. Barry jumps when she asks him to do anything. If she needs a light bulb changed, he immediately goes to fix it. She has always been his boss in terms of what he does, how he does it and when he does it. And she is his confidante when it comes to our marriage, which does not help. For the past several years, Barry has been very uninterested in me. Hes angry all the time and blames me for everything that goes wrong in his life. Ive been to counseling, but Barry (and his mother) feels this is nonsense and says there must be something wrong with me. I have been an outsider in Barrys family for my entire marriage and see no hope of changing it. Where do I go from here? Is divorce my only answer? I truly love my husband, but I dont like our life with his family, and he is unwilling to make changes. Sad in the North Dear Sad: Your mother-in-law sounds difficult, but your real problem is Barry. If he would back you up, it would give you an opportunity to change the dynamics within the relationship. But his family doesnt show you respect because Barry doesnt demand it, and worse, he makes them believe they can treat you poorly. And while his family deserves his consideration, as well, it shouldnt come at your expense. Tell Barry that your marriage is in serious trouble, not only because of the way his family treats you, but because he is angry and uninterested. If he refuses to go for counseling, go back on your own and figure out whats best for you. Dear Annie: A year ago, I approached my aunt about something she did that hurt my family. I tried to do so with gentleness and respect. However, not only did she not apologize, but she also completely rationalized her behavior. Now she acts as if I did something wrong, and she is ignoring me. We used to be quite close and corresponded frequently. I still write to her, but get no response. She sends texts to everyone but me. She even writes my wife and kids, but its as if I no longer exist. How should I deal with this situation? The Silent Treatment Dear Silent: You caught your aunt behaving poorly. Instead of being mature about it, she became defensive. Now she is punishing you as a way to avoid taking responsibility for her actions. If you are willing to forgo the apology, you can simply tell her you miss her and the closeness you once had. Its also possible that in time she will begin including you again, as long as you dont mention the previous unpleasantness. We hope she will grow up soon. Dear Annie: Worried Papa said his teenage daughter wants to get her navel pierced. I got mine pierced in my 20s because everyone else was doing it, so of course I thought it was cool, too. In my 30s, I got pregnant and removed the ring. Now I have an ugly hole that was stretched during two pregnancies. Tattoos also stretch with aging and pregnancy, and some of them look like gross ink blobs as your skin loses its elasticity.
