And after just two months on the job, Hale walked away. Hale abruptly resigned Monday from the Citrus County School Board, saying she wanted to spend more time with ailing family members, including her mother and husband. This is where my focus needs to be, she said in an interview. Hale, who defeated Bill Murray in the August primary, attended just three board meetings and participated very little in the discussions. She said the problem wasnt learning the complexities of the school district, state funding or property tax issues involving Progress Energy Florida. Rather, she said, health issues involving her family escalated since taking office in midNovember. A lot can happen quickly, she said. Hale, a former technology teacher at Lecanto High School, declined to discuss her familys Family first: Hale resigns school board New member leaving after just two months to tend to ailing relatives See HALE / Page A5 Susan Hale Supply and demand P AT F AHERTY Staff writerT he gun business is good in Citrus County. In fact, it has been on an upswing since Nov. 7, when President Obama was re-elected. And the sales of guns and ammunition got another boost by the fear of possible government restrictions in response to the school shootings in Newtown, Conn. Patriotic Sporting Goods in Citrus Hills is about to mark its first anniversary. Leaning heavily to the firearm and shooters supply side of the business, the store is a nonprofit that employs and assists disabled veterans. And owner Jamey Clovis, an expert on firearms, is just as willing to extol the virtues of life in Citrus County as he is to share knowledge of guns and ammunition. He has built a following of loyal local customers and attracts out-of-area shoppers looking for hard-to-find firearms. The volume that we MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Patriot Sporting Goods owner Jamey Clovis displays a .22 Long Rifle GSG AK-47 in his store in Citrus Springs. The 25-round magazine can be replaced with a five-round clip, making it legal for hunting in many states, according to Clovis. He said he believes the weapon will be targeted for a ban by lawmakers because of its resemblance to the AK-47 assault rifle and its large capacity magazine. Jamey Clovis unpacks a box of large-capacity magazines in his Patriot Sporting Goods store. Recently, he said, the price for the magazines that hold extra rounds of ammunition has doubled and they now retail for about $40. Rising prices hitting county shooters in pocketbook See GUNS / Page A5 Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama endorsed controversial bans on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines on Monday, as well as stricter background checks for gun buyers but conceded he may not win approval of all in a Congress reluctant to tighten restrictions. Will all of them get through this Congress? I dont know, said Obama. He said lawmakers would have to examine their own conscience as they tackle gun control legislation after the horrifying Connecticut school shootings but in the face of opposition from the National Rifle Association and other pro-gun rights groups. Obama spoke at a midday White House news conference one month after the Newtown elementary school rampage, which ignited a national discussion on preventing mass shootings. The president said he would unveil a comprehensive roadmap for curbing gun violence within days. His plan will be based on recommendations from Vice President Joe Bidens gun task force and is expected to include both legislative proposals and steps Obama can implement by himself using his presidential powers. But the most sweeping and contentious elements including an assault weapons ban Obama backs gun control proposals President acknowledges he faces tough fight in Congress See OBAMA / Page A5 M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerAn AMBER Alert is designed to get the publics attention and thats exactly what happened early Monday morning. Many Citrus County residents were jolted awake around 1:40 a.m. by what sounded like an Armageddon warning from their cellphones. An AMBER Alert has been issued in your area, please check local media, a text message read. No location, no website, no phone number. As it turned out, the AMBER Alert came from Immokalee, about 200 miles south of Inverness, involving the disappearance of a 2-year-old girl. The child was found, unharmed, a few hours later in a nearby wooded area. The alert was the first in a new program beginning in 2013 that sends automatic emergency AMBER Alerts to millions of cell company customers who have smartphones. Prior to this year, cell customers had to sign up for the Wireless AMBER Alert program. The wireless industry then joined the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Emergency Management Agency to create the Wireless Emergency Alerts program. Now all AMBER Alerts plus alerts issued by the president or alerts of imminent threats, such as tornadoes or attacks are automatically sent to wireless customers with smartphones in areas targeted by the alert. Florida Department of Law Enforcement Special Agent Carol Frederick said Mondays alert shows kinks exist in the process. Frederick, who said coworkers in Tallahassee also received the same alert, said FDLE issues email AMBER Alerts to anyone who signs up to receive them. Our hotline was very active with people asking what the alert was, Frederick said. They thought it was issued by FDLE. We only issue email alerts. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children receives AMBER Alert notifications from local law enforcement and state or federal agents on the scene of a childs disappearance. Authorities in Immokalee sought a statewide alert because the girl disappeared in the middle of the night See ALERT / Page A5 New AMBER Alert a wakeup call

Improvements hit bump in road N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Motorists who travel on Forest Drive in Inverness know it seems to attract drivers who like to speed, which makes it dangerous to the hundreds of city residents who live in the housing areas along that street, said Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni at a recent city council meeting. Weve discussed this for years, he told council members. Traffic-calming and aesthetic improvements have been planned and the city has already secured a Florida Department of Transportation grant of $35,000 for the design portion of the project. As for funding for the actual construction, theyve hit a small bump in the road. The (FDOT) construction rules have changed and the actual construction may or may not qualify with the new rules, DiGiovanni said. If we utilize the $35,000 for the design, DOT mandates that you will construct within 10 years. Knowing how important the improvements are this is not a project we want to walk away from. The council voted to accept the $35,000 grant, with the understanding that the project would be scaled down, consolidating trafficcalming elements at specific, strategic locations and reducing construction costs. If DOT construction (funding) never materializes, by shrinking the scope of the project the city can budget funds over the next eight to 10 years in our CIP (City Improvement Plan), DiGiovanni said. Road improvement projects involving Highland Boulevard and Zephyr Street are on the agenda for tonights city council meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Inverness Government Building, 212 W. Main St., Inverness. The public is welcome to attend. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927. P AT F AHERTY Staff writerThe Agricultural Alliance wants to get people talking about the fate of the Citrus County Canning Center. The center is deeply rooted in the countys past, but has been on shaky ground since county budget cuts in 2009. Located in a former school house in Lecanto, it is operated by Citrus County Parks and Recreation. Concerned about the facilitys future in the current budget climate, the Alliance took up the issue at its Monday meeting. The Agricultural Alliance does not speak for the canning center, member Dale McClellan said. If there is a need, the agriculture community would like get a conversation started. The center has very nice equipment located in an old historic building. We want to help the canning center, but we are not in charge. I see the canning center as an asset, said Dr. Philip Geist, area director, Small Business Development Center. We need to see if there is an interest and feasibility in using it as an asset to create jobs and help farmers move products. Diane Toto, of We Care Food Pantry, outlined a plan for the facility that would convert the canning center to utilizing metal cans. The plan is a compete concept that would eliminate wasted crops, combat hunger and encourage home gardens. We can change lives and have a real impact on self-sufficiency, she said. We have to encourage the county not to sell it until we can jump on it. We need to find out from the county what they plan to do with it, said member Dixie Hollins, or if there are other organizations in the county that dont want it to go. Discussion led to formation of a task force of members interested in exploring the issue. Subsequently, the alliance approved a donation of $300 to make a video to put online to raise public awareness by showing what the canning center is and some of its history. In other business, State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness, explained his recently filed state lands bill, which would allow small ranchers and farmers to use adjacent state lands to expand. This is what a small community needs, he said and asked for input from the agriculture community. The alliance will have a booth at the Manatee Festival and at the AGRItunity 2013 Conference and Trade Show on Jan. 26 in Bushnell. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com. Alliance hopes to raise canning center awareness E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerHOMOSASSA Sitting on the top step in front of his shop, Greg Downing Jr. is young, full of life and continuously has his black Labrador Jasmine by his side. He is 17 years old and completing his senior year in a home-school program. Waking up early in the morning, Downing Jr. completes his studies and then goes to work. However, employment is different for him. He is his own employer. Owner of Outcast Tackle Shop, 10330 W. Yulee Dr., Homosassa, Downing Jr. recognizes the hard work required to be an entrepreneur and business owner. Balancing school and the business has been my hardest task, Downing said. However, I have learned how to run a business, business plans, finances and so much more. This is the best college education he could get hands-on and real business, said his father, Greg Downing Sr. How much does it cost to turn the key to open up the door? How much do you have to sell everyday to make a living and survive? Those are concepts he is learning how to do. Since Downing Jr. was 11 years old, his father taught his son how to invest in real estate. We own several corporations together where one corporation owns eight different properties, Downing Sr. said. At 16 he started a commercial fishing business where he got a products fishing license to buy and sell fish. Instead of just fishing for fun, he made a profit. Downing Jr. used the earnings from his commercial fishing business and the knowledge he learned from his father to open the tackle shop on his own. Local guides provide him with information on the current water conditions, tackle and products to buy. There is a lot of current knowledge when you come in here, Downing Jr. said. Fishing is what I love to do. I am working with local guides for my clients. You ask a question and it gets answered. I just went to a show in Raleigh, N.C., and bought a lot of affordable tackle like Star Rods, Greg said. I want to appeal to a casual angler all the way up to professionals. Currently, he does not carry live bait; however, Downing Jr. said he plans to offer it by the summer. The shop opens at 9 a.m., however he promised that will change in the summer, as fishing picks up. Peoples responses and traffic is great, but it is a slow time of year for the fishing industry, Downing Jr. said. People know we are going to be here every day. Doors are open now with a grand opening set for March 2. Inverness council accepts design grant, but scales back street construction project His own boss MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Seventeen-year-old Greg Downing sits in front of his Outcast Tackle Shop in Homosassa and discusses his thoughts on owning a bu siness at such a young age. In addition to owning the shop, Downing hopes to work as a full-time fishing guide in the future.

SIDIBE Staff writerThe Florida Highway Patrol made its presence felt during the just-ended holiday season by issuing more than 39,000 traffic citations and making 548 drivingunder-the-influence arrests across the state. Citrus County accounted for 193 of the 39,202 citations issued and five of the DUI arrests. Twenty safety belt violations and 86 speeding tickets also were handed out in Citrus, according to FHP data. Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol, announced late last week his agencys preliminary enforcement results in the nationwide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign from Dec. 12 to Jan. 2. He said FHP beefed up its force by having troopers postpone administrative duties in favor of road patrols and adding reservists and auxiliary troopers to patrol duty. Our troopers were out on the roadways to help Florida residents and visitors have a safe and enjoyable holiday period, Brierton said. Every year the members of the patrol do their part to identify unsafe drivers and remove them from the roadways, as well as taking the appropriate steps to deter unsafe driving behaviors. According to the FHP more than 2,500 motorists were cited for failure to buckle up during the campaign. Nearly 11,000 motorists received assistance from the agency, while there were 10,876 crashes statewide. Law enforcement agencies across the state reported 58 fatalities during that period. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA 66-year-old man arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious conduct involving a 6-yearold boy last July has been re-arrested and now charged with rape in the same case, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Gerald Stefan Edwards, East Wacker Street, Hernando, is facing charges of sexual battery of a child younger than age 12. No bond was allowed. Edwards was nabbed this past Friday after more evidence surfaced related to his alleged conduct before his arrest for lewd sexual behavior with a child. According to the CCSO report in July, a witness opened the closed door of a bedroom and found Edwards standing in front of the child, who was on a bed. Edwards was trying to pull up his pants, the report said. Subsequent interviews with the child, who is now 7, indicate Edwards sexually violated the boy during that incident, according to the report. In July, Edwards had an explanation for why a witness reportedly found him in a room with a boy, with the door closed and his pants down to his knees: his pants were too big and would often fall off him whenever he stands, the report stated. Edwards, who is currently in custody at the Citrus County Detention Center, did not give a statement this time since he has an attorney.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE L OCAL HI LO PR NA NA NA HI LO PR 83 58 0.00 HI LO PR 82 60 0.00 HI LO PR 80 58 0.00 HI LO PR 84 61 0.00 HI LO PR 78 58 0.00 YESTERDAYS WEATHER Partly to mostly sunny.THREE DAY OUTLOOK Partly cloudy.

do here is absolutely unbelievable, Clovis said. Nov. 7 was when it started. The customers have been a mix of longtime shooters and firsttime buyers. To accommodate the latter, he also offers and recommends eight-hour gun courses from entry level to expert. His best-selling gun has been the Ruger 10/22 Takedown, a target shooter favorite that can be taken apart for easy transport. While semi-automatic assault type rifles have dominated the news, theyre not for most of his Citrus County customers. But they have been hit by rapidly rising ammunition prices based largely on the fear of future restrictions. Theyre not putting a gun in every window of their house, theyre going target shooting, he said. Its a hobby, its definitely recreational shooting, he said. People are upset because a part of their life theyve built into retirement going out and target shooting is pretty much being taken away from them as prices double and triple. He gets a lot of first-time buyers where a retired guy buys a gun for some target shooting and is back in the store shortly thereafter because his wife wants her own gun. Another aspect of serving a senior clientele is matching the firearm to a shooters physical capabilities such as a person lacking hand strength due to arthritis. He said this is a growing part of his business. Clovis also takes pride in locating what customers want, which has brought in many buyers as demand and the threat of being outlawed has made some of the more exotic semiautomatic firearms and accessories very hard to find and very expensive. In general my costs have doubled, he said. Seventeen major gun manufactures in this country raised their prices as of Jan. 1. Prices have increased between 5 and 40 percent, and this is only January. As a result, people are stocking up so they will be able to continue their shooting hobby. He said first-time gun buyers can expect a lot of questions and a lot of advice whether they a want a gun for selfdefense, a gun to carry, one for target shooting or just think theyd better get one now. As for cost, they can expect to spend $350 to $550 for a handgun for personal protection. We want them to get the right gun, he said. It may not that Glock they heard about, but something more suitable. The store also attracts collectors, and Clovis has some unique historic pieces traded in by local residents. People are buying up ammunition real quick, there are some shortages, said Jud Garvin, owner of Garvins Guns in Homosassa. Prices are going way up for guns and ammo, were dealing with supply and demand. Obama is the best gun salesman America ever had, he said. He has found a similar trend with customer shooting habits. Theyre not for hunting or self-defense, people are plinking, he said. Just plinking (shooting for fun). Garvin thinks the smart money would be to just ride out the trend, but instead people are paying the high prices. He thinks we are likely to see some ban on certain imported firearms and high-capacity magazines. You dont need a 30-round clip to hunt, he said. But they are more convenient for people on the range. As a longtime gun dealer, Garvin is adamant about not losing any Second Amendment rights. Theyve got a right to do something to protect children in the classrooms, he said, but you are not going to stop crazy people. Marc Solgan has a different take on the gun business. He owns American Trading Post Pawn in Crystal River. Being primarily a pawn shop, which handles guns, he said his business has not been affected as much and gun sales have always been steady.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com.

Asked if her own health contributed to the decision to resign, Hale said, a little bit, but declined to elaborate. Hale gave a brief resignation letter to board Chairwoman Ginger Bryant that offered no explanation for her decision. This letter is to serve as my official resignation from my current position of Citrus County District IV School Board Member, Citrus County, Florida. This resignation is to take effect immediately, the letter reads. Thank you for your cooperation and kind consideration of this matter. Her resignation left board members shocked. Im bewildered. I dont know what happened, Bryant said. Ive never seen that happen before. Board members Pat Deutschman and Thomas Kennedy said it seemed Hale was having trouble fitting in. She seemed to be very uncomfortable in the role, very unprepared, Deutschman said. I think people underestimate the difficulty and responsibility of being a school board member. Kennedy said Hale didnt show enthusiasm on the board. Im not sure she really knew why she wanted the job, and sometimes that seemed apparent, he said. I dont know what motivated her to be a board member. Hale said the issue was family health and nothing more. My hearts still there, no doubt about it, she said. Hale praised board members and the administration. Its been a great two months, she said. I have nothing but positives. Hales resignation leaves the school board with four members until Gov. Rick Scott appoints a replacement. Murray declined to comment on Hales resignation and said he hadnt thought about whether he would seek appointment to fill the vacancy.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. will require approval from a Congress that has been loath to tackle gun control legislation for more than a decade. The politically powerful NRA has vowed to fight any measure that would limit access to guns and ammunition, a hardline position that could sway some Republicans and conservative Democrats. Despite the opposition, Obama said he would vigorously pursue measures to tighten gun laws. My starting point is not to worry about the politics, he said. The presidents new resolve follows a lack of movement in tackling gun violence throughout much of his first term, despite several high-profile shootings. He called the Dec. 14 massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School the worst day of his presidency and vowed to take action. Parents of the slain Connecticut children added their voices to the national dialogue Monday. Members of the newly formed group Sandy Hook Promise called for an open-minded discussion about a range of issues, including guns, mental health and safety in schools and other public places. And lawmakers in New York state pressed ahead with what would be the nations first gun control measure approved since the school shootings. Among the items in a tentative agreement in the state Legislature are further restrictions on the states ban on assault weapons, limits on the size of magazines to seven bullets, down from the current 10, and more stringent background checks for sales. and there were no witnesses. The center then sent the AMBER Alert to its secondary carriers companies that can quickly disseminate the information to their customers, said Bob Hoever, director of special programs. Hoever, whose office is in Washington, D.C., said AMBER Alerts have the ability to quickly mobilize citizens into helping to find missing or abducted children. The text message is limited to 90 characters and the FCC will not allow a link to the AMBER Alert website as part of the message, Hoever said. Still, he acknowledged that Mondays message could leave residents of Citrus County convinced that the alert was for their own community. I feel really bad for anybody it did wake up, he said. Were going to have to really take a look at the program. Though cell customers can opt out of the AMBER Alert program, Hoever hopes they do not. We dont want to anger the public, he said. We want to embrace the public to help find these children. GUNS Continued from Page A1 HALE Continued from Page A1 ALERTContinued from Page A1 OBAMA Continued from Page A1

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Long voting lines in November that again put Florida under national scrutiny could be eased in future elections if lawmakers restore the early voting days they cut and stop putting so many long constitutional amendment proposals on the ballot, a Senate committee heard Monday. A panel of nine election supervisors representing counties around the state told the committee that they should have the flexibility to hold at least eight and up to 14 days of early voting, and to be allowed more flexibility in choosing early voting sites. They also said the 11 long questions the Republican-dominated Legislature jammed onto the ballot increased voting time and required more time to scan the multipaged ballots. A shorter ballot reduces voting times and election costs. We must not just look at the number of words, but the number of amendments, said Duval County elections supervisor Jerry Holland. The Legislature loaded up the ballot with antiabortion, pro-church, tax cut and anti-Obamacare questions designed to bring out conservative voters. And they took advantage of an exemption that allows the questions to exceed the 75-word limit imposed on citizens groups that petition to have questions placed on the ballot. Counties that had never previously had multi-page ballots used them in the last election, while the ballot in Miami-Dade county was 12 pages long. Joseph Body, 82HERNANDO Joseph Michael Body, 82, Hernando, died Jan. 11, 2013, in Citrus Memorial hospital. Mr. Body was born in Manville, N.J., Oct. 31, 1930, to the late Daniel and Helen Body. He moved to Citrus County in 1988, from East Meadow, N.Y., where he retired after 35 years from Pan American Airways as an aircraft maintenance supervisor. Mr. Body served in the USAF and is a veteran of the Korean Conflict. His love and growing knowledge of aviation ignited his long career with Pan Am, where his influence expanded to key management roles before his retirement. A skilled swimmer and a man with a passion for self-learning in many areas, Mr. Body lived a full, active life in his new community. Since his earliest years, he was dedicated to learning new skills and engaging them. He was an accomplished woodcraftsman and the consumate fix-it man. He built a woodworking shop for himself and spent countless hours in it doing what he loved creating. He was also a self-taught financial planner, building a deep understanding of economics over the years. Staying busy and involved were important values to Mr. Body. He worked at Whispering Pines Park as a park aide and also worked as a pool maintenance specialist. He and his wife traveled extensively, including a trip around the world. The birth of his granddaughter Tasha, in 1987, brought great joy to his life and he is remembered fondly for his care and dedication to her. Left to mourn his passing is his wife of 60 years, Anne (Osyczka) Body, Hernando; two daughters, Joanne Osenenko and husband Derek, of Woodstock, N.Y., Susan Madden and husband Kevin, of East Meadow, N.Y.; his brother, William, of St. Louis, Mo.; and one grandchild, Tasha.

Toyota retakes global auto sales crown from GM Associated PressDETROIT Toyota has once again dethroned General Motors as the worlds top-selling automaker. The Japanese company sold 9.7 million cars and trucks worldwide in 2012, although its still counting. GM sold 9.29 million. Both companies saw higher sales, but Toyotas growth was far larger as it rolled out new versions of popular models like the Camry. GM executives promised sales growth this year, especially in the U.S. Both companies say publicly that they dont care about who wins, but concede that the crown is an important morale booster for employees. GM was the top-selling carmaker for more than seven decades before losing the title to Toyota in 2008. But GM retook the sales crown in 2011 when Toyotas factories were slowed by an earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The disaster left Toyota dealers with few cars to sell. The company has since recovered. Toyotas comeback from the earthquake, and flooding in Thailand, is only part of the story, said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting for LMC Automotive, a Detroit-area industry forecasting firm. The company also has freshened up its stale midsize sedan, the Camry, the top-selling car in the United States. GMs global sales rose 2.9 percent last year, it announced Monday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Toyota sales rose 22 percent. Schuster expects Toyota to keep the lead over GM this year as it launches a new Corolla. I think thats going to be enough to keep them in their position, he said. Toyota builds 70 percent of the cars it sells in the U.S. in North America, including the Corolla. GM is also contending with a stronger Volkswagen. It narrowly edged out the fast-growing German company for second place in 2012. VW sold a record 9.1 million vehicles. Volkswagen, with big sellers like the Passat midsize sedan and Jetta compact, closed in on GM with an 11 percent sales increase across the globe. The United States, where VW Group sales rose 34 percent, led the way. Schuster expects GM to hold off Volkswagen in 2013. Thats because VW has more of a presence in Europe, where sales are falling as the region struggles with high unemployment and weak economies. Associated Press Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda shows a remodeled Crown sedan last month in Tokyo. Toyota sold a record 9.7 million vehicles last year, bouncing back by 22 percent from a disaster-struck 2011. It has set an even higher target of 9.91 million vehicles for 2013. The numbers underline Toyotas solid turnaround from supply disruptions caused by the earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan in 2011 that had hurt global production and sales. Company offers coupons in cars Associated PressST. PETERSBURG The company that sends you blue envelopes stuffed with coupons also wants you to save money while youre driving. Valpak has partnered with Roximity, a Denverbased app developer, to bring coupons and deals to drivers of newer-model Fords and Lincolns who use the voice-controlled Sync AppLink connected to their mobile phone. The app allows people to hear about personalized deals from stores, restaurants and other businesses as they drive. The coupon appears on the drivers smartphone and can be redeemed once the car is stopped. Valpak, which is based in St. Petersburg, is trying to branch out from the traditional print offers and capture the digital coupon market. There are plenty of apps that use GPSbased location services to determine a phone users location and nearby deals but Roximitys app taps into the vast number of deals from Valpak. This partnership took us to the next level, said Nancy Cook, the vice president of digital business development at Valpak. Were delivering offers anywhere, any time. About one million Fords and Lincolns are set up for the new app and technology, Cook said. Heres how it works: People who drive selected vehicles with the Sync AppLink can download the Roximity app on their phone. Once in the car, they plug the phone into the USB port and launch the Roximity app. As they are driving, they can push the hands-free sync button on their steering wheel and instruct the Sync program to access Roximity. Then the driver can search for deals. On a recent day not long after the partnership was announced, Gigi Swanson, the digital alliances and partnerships strategist at Valpak, demonstrated the device on a new Ford Focus. Find nearby deals, she said to her dashboard. Roximity found 10 deals nearby, the computerized womans voice replied. One of the deals was for a large pizza at a nearby restaurant. Swanson showed how to call the restaurant or read details of the offer, all without touching the phone. Had Swanson wanted to buy that pizza, she would have showed the cashier the coupon once inside the restaurant; the virtual coupon was on the Roximity app on Swansons phone. In the coming months as the app and technology mature, Swanson said, the app and Sync devices will remember a drivers preference-based behavior and send alerts based on prior redemptions similar to Amazons or iTunes recommendations. Valpak already targets homeowners who receive their coupons based on ZIP code; the coupons are sent out in batches of 10,000 in the U.S. and Canada and are based on geographical locations, income levels and postal carrier routes. All of the mailed offers are printed in St. Petersburg; some 40 million coupons are printed and sent each month. Many of those offers will be featured on the Roximity app. Fla. officials want shorter ballot, more early voting

The electronics and appliance retailer posted disappointing forecasts for its fiscal third quarter and for the full year. A Wedbush analyst said that a check at the luxury bag makers stores found strong sell-throughs of some of its bags and clutches. Weaker sales at the clothing companys Juicy Couture brand hurt its fourth-quarter performance, but its 2012 revenue beat expectations. Bankrupt snack maker Hostess Brands said that it selected bids by the rival bakery to buy six of its bread brands for $390 million. Swatch Group, the Swiss watch maker, said that it will pay about $1 billion to acquire the Canadian watch and jewelry brand. Stock indexes were mixed on Monday, as drops in telecommunications and technology stocks offset gains by companies that sell consumer goods. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell to a modest loss for the second consecutive day. 13 14 15 $16 OJ ND Harry WinstonHWD Close: $15.08 0.62 or 4.3% $10.32$16.14 Vol.: Mkt.

The Dow Jones industrial average edged higher. The Dow rose 18.89 points to 13,507.32 Monday, having fallen as much as 29 points at the start of the day. The S&P 500 fell 1.37 point to 1,470.68. The Nasdaq composite index fell 8.13 points to 3,117.50 The S&P 500 closed at a five-year high of 1,472 on Thursday, following a solid start to the fourthquarter earnings reporting period and amid optimism that the outlook for global growth is brightening. Apples stock, which isnt included in the Dow but accounts for 10.3 percent of the Nasdaq index and 3.7 percent of the S&P slid $18.55 to $501.75 after TheWall Street Journal reported the company has reduced its orders for iPhone 5 components due to weak demand. Apple slipped below $500 a share for the first time in nearly a year, in early trading. The stock has slumped 28 percent since closing at a record $702.10 in September. Computer maker Dell surged $1.41, or 13 percent, to $12.29 following a report its in talks with buyout firms. The company is considering going private with at least two firms, Bloomberg news reported, citing unidentified sources. Earnings reporting will pick up this week with many big U.S. banks, including JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Bank of America releasing results. The market is definitely in wait and see mode, said Brian Gendreau, a market strategist at Cetera Financial Group. Investors will be scrutinizing revenues to assess whether the drawn-out debate over the fiscal cliff had an impact on consumer spending. A series of tax hikes and spending cuts due to come into effect Jan. 1 were only averted by a last-minute deal. Earnings growth has likely peaked for now because companies have been relying on cost cutting, rather than growth, to boost profitability, says Ron Sloan, a senior portfolio manager at Invesco. Analysts currently forecast that fourth-quarter 2012 earnings for S&P 500 companies will increase 3.3 percent, according to S&P Capital IQ. That compares with 8.4 percent from the same period a year earlier.

The Treasury Department auctioned $28 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.075 percent, up from 0.065 percent last week. Another $32 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.105 percent, the same as last week. The three-month rate was the highest since those bills averaged 0.085 percent on Dec. 26. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the threemonth price was $9,994.69, while a sixmonth bill sold for $9,998.10. Dells stock soars on report of possible buyoutROUND ROCK, Texas Dells stock soared 13 percent Monday on a report that the struggling personal computer maker is in talks to take the company private. Citing unidentified people familiar with the situation, Bloomberg News said Dell has discussed a potential sale with at least two firms that specialize in buying companies that have fallen out of favor with investors. The report didnt name the interested firms. Dell Inc., based in Round Rock, Texas, declined to comment. Swatch in $1 billion deal for Harry Winston brandGENEVA Switzerlands biggest watch maker, Swatch Group AG, will pay about $1 billion to buy Canadas Harry Winston watch and jewelry brand, officials from both companies said Monday. The Biel, Switzerland-based company agreed to pay $750 million to acquire the brand from Toronto-based Harry Winston Diamond Corp. and will also assume as much as $250 million in debt, a joint statement said. The acquisition includes the Harry Winston production company in Geneva and more than 500 employees globally.E-book reading on the rise among young people NEW YORK E-books may finally be catching on with the toughest of customers: young people. A report commissioned by childrens publisher Scholastic Inc. finds that 46 percent of respondents aged 9-17 had read an e-book as of last year, compared to just 25 percent in 2010. And around half of those who have not read an e-book say they want to do so. But the appeal of paper remains. Around 80 percent of kids who read an e-book still read print books, according to Mondays report. While e-books are believed to comprise around 25 to 30 percent of total book sales, the number has been much lower among children. The rise of iPads and other tablets has helped vastly expand the availability of picture books and other childrens books in electronic format. UPS abandons $6.9 billion deal for TNT ExpressUPS scrapped plans to grow in Europe through the acquisition of Dutch delivery company TNT Express because European regulators were getting ready to reject the $6.9 billion deal. It would have been the largest acquisition in UPS history. UPS offered in March to buy TNT, Europes second-largest delivery company, to better compete with Europes largest, Deutsche Posts DHL. Regulators objected, saying the deal would reduce competition in the market for express delivery of small packages. UPS said Monday that it had proposed tangible remedies, but after meeting with regulators on Friday, the Atlanta company told TNT it saw no prospect of the deal being approved. Investors exit stock funds for sixth year in a rowBOSTON Investors pulled money from stock mutual funds in 2012 for the sixth year in a row, despite the stock markets strong performance. Bond funds attracted the most cash since 2009, another illustration of how conservative investors have become with their money since the financial crisis. A net $90 billion was withdrawn from U.S. stock mutual funds last year, industry consultant Strategic Insight said on Monday. The total included $26 billion pulled out in December, the tenth month in a row that withdrawals have exceeded deposits. JPMorgan told to fix oversight tied to $6B loss WASHINGTON JPMorgan Chase & Co. has been ordered to take steps to correct poor risk management that led to a surprise trading loss last year of more than $6 billion. Federal regulators also on Monday cited the bank for lapses in oversight that allowed the bank to be used for money laundering. JPMorgan, the nations largest bank by assets, will not pay a fine under the agreements with the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Comptroller of the Currency, a Treasury Department agency. The bank promised to strengthen its policies and procedures to control risk and to screen customers to prevent money laundering. From wire reports Business HIGHLIGHTS

O PINION Page A10 TUESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2013 Gun debate no debate The debate about gun control (a misnomer) really is about confiscation and suppression. When Mary B. Gregory alleges that no one would dare oppose the Second Amendment rights but suggests one approach is to disarm the people by prohibiting ammunition, she plays a cat and mouse game. There are some sensible suggestion on both sides of the debate, but name-calling is not one of them. The NRA is being verbally attacked and blamed by some who know little about the organization. Since 1871, a major objective of the NRA has been the training of people of good repute in the safe handling and proper use of firearms. Over 90,000 training instructors teach gun safety. Those so critical of the NRA should read its training materials before making unfounded judgements. The tens of thousands of people who have successfully completed safety courses and the many programs for youth, adults and law enforcement personnel are a matter of record. E.G. Yerians letter calling the NRA greedy, sick, and having blood on its hands seems to me to fall in the category of hate mail. I dont see any facts backing up her allegations. Her letter is irresponsible and pap. Gordon B. Boucher Inverness Do your research There is an old saying: it is often better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. I believe this holds true for some of the people who send letters to the editor. Maybe you should just call in and you wont have to give your name. By the way, the preceding statement was just an opinion, as I dont have any factual data to back it up. Facts are established truths, backed up by empirical data, and not just something youve made up in your own mind. Due to advances in technology, all the information in the world is now available at your fingertips either on the Internet or at your public library. The library even has computers and will show you how to use them if you dont already know. When you quote fantasies or hearsay, you are proving yourself to be both uneducated and uninformed and also not a worthy participant in any conversation or discussion. If you think you can persuade or intimidate people into accepting your point of view by making outrageous statements, then I think you are fooling at least one person. Besides that, if you can persuade or intimidate people with nonfactual data, are they really the type of people that you choose to associate with? Maybe some of you just need to edit your own letters before you let them fly. The last time I checked, there were 60 seconds in a minute. At a rate of fire of four per second, that would equal 240 rpm, and not 100 rpm as suggested by one writer. If you really want to know the difference between a semi-auto and an automatic weapon, look it up. If you want to know how many rounds per minute an AR-15 will fire, look it up. Kudos to those of you who do your research before sending in letters. I would be glad to discuss any topic with you even if Im not familiar with that topic. I can always look it up on my cell phone. Captain W. J. (Jack) Fowler Homosassa T he periodical Education Week recently published its annual Quality Counts State Report Card. Florida received a Band ranked sixth nationally, so immediately the usual suspects engaged in the typical self-adulation. The Republican Party of Florida and Gov. Scott rushed to tweet out their congratulations to each other for these successes. I dont relish being the guy constantly throwing cold water on the party, but a closer read of the Education Week report reflects what most parents of schools kids already know. All is definitely not well in Floridas schools. The report grades the 50 states on a variety of education components, and where Florida did well is not nearly as important as where we tanked. Florida received top grades for its accountability and assessments. In other words, we got an A for the amount and quality of testing we conduct in our schools. This should come as no surprise to Florida teachers, who feel forced to spend more time giving tests than actually teaching coursework. But testing is not teaching, and, in fact, in the category of achievement Florida was clearly subpar. We earned a Cfrom Education Week because, according to its report, too many kids are not proficient in math or reading. Plus, our states graduation rate was ranked 44th in the nation. The report didnt event take into account that graduating seniors ACT and SAT scores were among the worst in the country or that 50 percent of those who graduate need remedial work if they get to college. Of course you get what you pay for, and, indeed, our poor achievement score was very close to the D+ we received in the education funding category. According to Education Week, Florida ranks near the bottom in every relevant education spending metric. So before they uncork champagne bottles, Floridians should know that the failure of Gov. Scott and the legislature to support public schools adequately has created a palpable achievement deficit in our state. Getting straight As for having lots of tests is not the same as getting As on the tests. Weighing a malnourished dog every day doesnt make him any better. We shouldnt be celebrating how sophisticated our testing regimen is when we perform so poorly, and too many young people dont graduate or graduate lacking skills to reach their full potential in the job market. Dont misunderstand. I believe there have been achievement gains in the few subjects tested and strongly believe accountability instruments are important. We do need to know what is working and how institutions are performing as well as how well students are learning. But Floridas problem is that we have a system that measures competence in only a few subjects. So rather than accounting for all the things that matter in schools, we make all that matters only the things we account for. And compounding the problem is a funding shortfall. Florida schools, with such limited budgets, cant afford to emphasize anything but what is tested and what is part of the school grading system. The result is a terrible kind of triage in public education, where electives, higher-level coursework, extra-curricular activities are all neglected or, worse, eliminated because they dont improve a schools grades. A strong accountability system needs to broaden, not narrow the curriculum. That cannot happen if you only have accountability without adequate school funding. Until Tallahassee understands the need to raise the bar as well as the financial investment, Florida will continue to celebrate mediocrity at the expense of true achievement. Thats because testing is not teaching. Dan Gelber was a state senator and former House Democratic leader from Miami. He can be contacted at dan@dangelber.com.

During the 10 a.m. meeting at the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) headquarters in Brooksville, water officials will likely politely listen to opponents of the recently established minimum flows and levels (MFLs). Theyll correctly be able to point to action to cut the MFL for the Chassahowitzka from the staff-recommended 9 percent to 3 percent, which is the same as the Homosassas MFL. If, loosely, history proves correct, the citizens will criticize the science behind MFLs and question why any level of degradation could be allowed, and water officials will stress that their job, as related to MFLs, relates exclusively to water flow, not other degradation issues such as septic tanks, fertilizers and saltwater intrusion. While the MFLs for the two rivers are now law, the citizen activists are applauded for pushing the issue. River flow is inextricably linked to water quality and until state officials connect those dots, Floridians should seriously worry about the health of our riverine environments. Citrus Countians, specifically, should be vocal about the state-mandated MFL policy that smacks in the face of the Outstanding Florida Water (OFW) law. Included on the OFL list are both the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka rivers, as well as the Withlacoochee and Crystal rivers, which have yet to have MFLs set. While SWFWMD has acknowledged river degradation evidenced by such things has habitat loss and signs of saltwater intrusion it seeks to establish a wedge of distinction between water flow and pollution factors. While working at the direction of the governor and state lawmakers, water district officials would be heralded if they said, Yes, allowing a reduction in flow without taking all polluting variables present and future into account is ludicrous. Were obligated under the OFW law to ensure that we dont allow any degradation and our expertise would best be used by allowing us to have sway on factors that can improve water quality. Theyd be heralded by lovers of Floridas environment but theyd probably want to get there resumes in order. If nothing comes from this mornings meeting, we hope the citizens can inspire acknowledgment by those with power that the multiple factors that determine a rivers health are intertwined and no singular one can be separated out. Key retired water officials have been vocal about the backward movement in water management. We need those presently in office to do the same.

Real help for vets I recently received an email from Citrus County Veterans Coalition Chairman Richard Floyd bringing my attention to a letter to the editor that appeared in the Citrus County Chronicles Dec. 27 edition, written by Patricia Dukeman of Homosassa. The letter told an all-too-common story of delays in the release of funds by the military to its families. These delays create hardships and in this particular case, it was affecting not just the payment of household utilities, but it was also making the difference of whether the familys children would have gifts to open on Christmas morning. As I read Ms. Dukemans letter, I was appalled that she had not been advised to contact the Citrus County Veterans Coalition (CCVC), or the Citrus County Veterans Foundation for assistance. Although the CCVC is a fairly new organization (established in 2004), we are a very proactive community organization, and receive many referrals from the Veterans Administration, businesses and churches throughout Citrus County. The CCVC also has an aggressive promotion department. Besides listing our events in the Coffee News, Peddlers Post and other publications, our community relations representative, Barbara L. Corcoran, appears every month on WYKEs Every Day is a Gift show, hosted by HPH Hospices Anne Black. Mrs. Corcoran also writes a column for the Citrus County Chronicle The column, Veterans Views, appears on the second Sunday of the month and discusses issues that affect veterans and their families. Our CCVC food bank is open to Citrus Countys qualified veterans on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is kept stocked with dry goods, canned goods and more through cash and food donations as well as money earned through our monthly yard sales. We provide a multitude of services for the more than 23,000 military veterans living in the Citrus County area. Although our membership is still small, were a very proactive group of veterans. Part of our strength is via partnering with the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 70, their Auxiliary, the Korean War Veterans Association, and several other military oriented organizations. We are a volunteer, non-paid, group of veterans whose mission is to make a difference in the lives of those veterans that are in need. Our motto is Veterans helping Veterans. Our newsletter, The Coalition Crusader, can be obtained free of charge at many Citrus County businesses. It is also available in .pdf form via our website at www.ccvcfl. org. It contains valuable information as well as resources. The situation Ms. Dukeman wrote about had a happy ending thanks to the Harley Davidson business in our area, and we are happy to hear about that. However, it never should have become so much of a challenge. We cannot help but feel a bit disappointed that, with so many who knew of us and our mission, the case still failed to find its way to us. Hopefully, with the publication of this letter, we can help even more veterans and their families by connecting them with businesses willing to donate time and/or materials, or at the very least, pointing those in need in the right direction to get the help they seek. So, step up to the plate, veterans of Citrus County, and join our group. We have some interesting and fun project positions open now. Just a few hours of your time will make a world of difference! Daniel P Corcoran Citrus Springs Change for PSC The Jan. 6 edition of the Citrus County Chroniclehas a letter from Alfred Mason, PSC keeps Progress in line. I would suggest he read the editorial by Randy Schultz in The Palm Beach Postdated Dec. 14, 2012. The PSC is in the pockets of the utilities. That is obvious to anyone willing to take the time to see through the rhetoric. The subject of the editorial is just one instance of their lack of ethics and total disregard for the average consumer. The name Public Service Commission implies they are there for us. But the name is an oxymoron. They enjoy too many perks at the expense of the consumer. The various junkets and parties for them are paid for by the utility companies. The money that is spent for these, of course, comes from the consumer. The original concept in the formation of the PSC was to oversee the utilities to make sure we were not gouged. That is a very simple and succinct way of describing their mission. When lavish parties, trips and other amenities are allowed to be given to PSC members by the very industry they are to keep an eye on, then something is wrong. Again, that is a very simple description, but it is an undisputable fact. Who oversees the PSC? Our esteemed state Legislature. The proverbial fox watching the henhouse. The same group that receives God knows how many millions of dollars in donations from the utilities. You see the conundrum here? The politicians and PSC share the gold while the consumer is getting the shaft. I wrote State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith and Sen. Charlie Dean in the hope of getting their input on the feasibility of getting this changed. It was a waste of time. Rep. Smith owes his re-election to special interests. He certainly wasnt re-elected on his abysmal job performance. Not they, nor any other politician are willing to dam up the flow of money. There is a small but growing movement under way that is going to try to change this system before the next election. I am proud and honored to be a part of it. If the consumer continues to perpetuate the same apathetic attitude toward the status quo, then things will continue to get worse. Instead of complaining and always referring to how they must fix things, get involved and become one of the they. If people continue to groan and moan but dont get involved, then at least learn the facts before you espouse their virtues. The PSC is out of control. Their arrogance and pious attitude must be reined in before they become unmanageable. Our legislature should not be their watchdog. They both have become shameful tools of special interests. If you choose not to get involved, then please dont obstruct those who are willing to try to do something constructive to put the PSC back on the track that was originally intended. We the People is the beginning of the preamble of our Constitution. It is time to take that phrase seriously and do something! When the PSC was formed, the intention was that it would be a tool for the consumer. Well, that tool has morphed into a screwdriver. And I am tired of being one of the screws. Mark Stoltz Inverness We are brokeSomeone please tell me what is wrong with the people who run this country, whether Democrat or Republican. Were broke and cant help our own seniors, veterans, orphans or homeless. In the past few years we have provided direct cash aid to: 1. Hamas $351 million 2. Libya $1.45 million 3.

Tanzania $554 million Even with these billions of dollars of financial aid, they all hate us! Our retired seniors on fixed incomes receive no aid, nor any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of millions of dollars and tons of aid to foreign countries! We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans. America: A country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medications and mentally ill without treatment, etc. Yet I remember a few years ago 12 TV stations running telethons to raise money for the people of Haiti for earthquake aid. Ships and planes loaded with tents, clothes, bedding and medical aid! Imagine if our government gave this same type of support to our own needy back here at home. Sad isnt it? Yet, our government continues to spend money we dont have and need to borrow to help foreign countries!

Shoveling Associated Press Bruce Thackery shovels snow Monday at his workplace in the Business Depot in Ogden, Utah. Report released on Wood deathLOS ANGELES A new report shows coroners officials amended Natalie Woods death certificate based on unanswered questions about bruises on her upper body. Los Angeles coroners officials state in an addendum to Woods autopsy report that some of the bruises may have occurred before she went into the water and drowned, but that could not be definitively determined. Authorities renewed their inquiry into Woods 1981 death in late 2011. Mondays report lays out the reasons for altering her cause of death from drowning to drowning and other undetermined factors. Wood was on a yacht off Catalina Island with husband Robert Wagner and co-star Christopher Walken before somehow ending up in the water. Sheriffs spokesman Steve Whitmore said Woods death is an open investigation, but reiterated that Wagner is not considered a suspect. Shooting suspect charged as adultFRESNO, Calif. A 16year-old student who was teased by his California high school classmates for his red hair, social awkwardness and bookish appearance will be tried as an adult for allegedly wounding a classmate with a shotgun and trying to target another. Bryan Oliver pleaded not guilty Monday in Kern County Superior Court to two counts of premeditated attempted murder and three counts of assault with a firearm in the attack Thursday at Taft Union High School that left a 16-yearold wounded. Defense attorney David Torres said in court that Oliver did not waive his right to change his plea in the future. The potential penalty for just one count of premeditated attempted murder with a firearm is 32 years to life. Students who know the teens said Oliver had been bullied. Divers assess hull of drill rig ANCHORAGE, Alaska Divers and remotely operated underwater vehicles have completed a review of the hull of a Royal Dutch Shell PLC drill barge that ran aground two weeks ago on a remote Alaska island. A spokeswoman for the joint information center on the Kulluk grounding, Amber Bassen, said information gathered by divers and the ROVs is being analyzed. The Kulluk is a circular barge 266 feet in diameter with a 160-foot derrick. The Kulluk drilled last year in the Beaufort Sea. It was being towed to Seattle on Dec. 27 when it lost its tow line. Reattached lines also broke and the vessel ran aground New Years Eve. The drill vessel was refloated Jan. 6 and towed to Kiliuda Bay, a sheltered bay on Kodiak Island.

Millions of Hindu pilgrims are expected to take part in the large religious congregation that lasts more than 50 days on the banks of Sangam 13 killed in Syrian airstrike BEIRUT Syrian activists said at least 13 people including eight children have been killed in a regime airstrike on a Damascus suburb. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Syrian warplanes hit the residential neighborhood of Maadamiyeh south of Damascus on Monday morning. The Observatory said at least seven more people are trapped under the rubble. The group relies on reports from activists on the ground. Mondays attack comes a day after heavy bombardments of strategic areas around the capital from which the government is trying to dislodge rebels. At least 45 people were reported killed. Robbers dig tunnel to bank BERLIN German police say robbers dug a 100foot tunnel into the safe deposit room of a Berlin bank and escaped with their haul, setting a fire as they left to cover their tracks. Berlin police spokesman Thomas Neuendorf said the tunnel led from an underground garage into the banks safe deposit room. Neuendorf told The Associated Press on Monday the tunnel was very professional and must have taken weeks or even months to complete. It was elaborately constructed and even had ceiling supports. Police were alerted to the break-in early Monday when a security guard noticed smoke coming from the deposit room. Neuendorf said police are still trying to determine what valuables were stolen from the deposit boxes. Rape hearing to be fast-tracked NEW DELHI Defense lawyers said the cases of five men charged in the fatal gang rape of a young woman on a moving New Delhi bus are expected to be shifted to a fast track court. A hearing on whether to move the cases was to be held Monday. It had been set for last week but was rescheduled when it turned out that the official list of charges was not completely legible. Five men have been charged with the Dec. 16 attack on the young woman, who died later in a Singapore hospital. They could face the death penalty if convicted. A sixth suspect, who said he is 17 years old, is likely to be tried in a juvenile court if medical tests confirm he is a minor. World BRIEFS From wire reports Obama in showdown with GOP Associated PressWASHINGTON Reiterating a threat he first issued in the summer of 2011, President Barack Obama on Monday warned Republicans that older Americans might not get their Social Security checks and veterans wont get timely benefits if Congress fails to increase the governments borrowing authority. Republicans are insisting on spending cuts in exchange for raising the current $16.4 trillion debt ceiling. Obama vowed Monday not to use the debt ceiling to negotiate deficit reduction. We are not a deadbeat nation, he declared, creating an inevitable showdown with congressional Republicans. The government could run out of cash to pay all its bills in full as early as Feb. 15, according to one authoritative estimate. That means Washington could once again plunge into political brinkmanship like it did in 2011 when Congress ultimately raised the debt ceiling, but only after Obama agreed to broad spending cuts. On Monday, Obama said Congress should act. The full faith and credit of the United States of America is not a bargaining chip, he said. Republicans in Congress have two choices here, Obama said. They can act responsibly, and pay Americas bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put America through another economic crisis. But they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the American economy. Without an agreement, every option facing his administration would be unprecedented. It would require a degree of financial creativity that could test the law, perhaps even the Constitution. It could shortchange Social Security recipients and other people, including veterans and the poor, who rely on government programs. It could force the Treasury to contemplate selling government assets, a step considered but rejected in 2011. In short, the Treasury would have to create its own form of triage, creating a priority list of its most crucial obligations, from interest payments to debtors to benefits to vulnerable Americans. Vows not to use debt ceiling to negotiate deficit reduction Barack Obama wants GOP to act responsibly. Associated Press A public transport minibus is stopped by Malian soldiers Monday at a checkpoint at the entrance to Markala in central Mali. Despite intensive aerial bombardments by French warplanes, Islamist insurgents grabbed more territory in Mali on Monday and got much closer to the capital, French and Malian authorities said. Mali rebels make gains, vow to avenge bombings Associated PressBAMAKO, Mali Despite a punishing bombardment by French warplanes, al-Qaidalinked insurgents grabbed more territory in Mali on Monday, seizing a strategic military camp that brought them far closer to the governments seat of power. Declaring France had opened the gates of hell with its assault, the rebels threatened retribution. France ... has fallen into a trap much more dangerous than Iraq, Afghanistan or Somalia, said Omar Ould Hamaha, a leader of the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa, one of the rebel groups controlling the north, speaking on radio Europe 1. French fighter jets have been pummeling the insurgents desert stronghold in the north since Friday, determined to shatter the Islamist domination of a region many fear could become a launch pad for terrorist attacks on the West and a base for coordination with al-Qaida in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. The Islamist fighters responded with a counter-offensive Monday, overrunning the garrison town of Diabaly, about 100 miles north of Segou, the administrative capital of central Mali, said French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. The French Embassy in Bamako immediately ordered the evacuation of the roughly 60 French nationals in the Segou region, said a French citizen who insisted on anonymity out of fear for her safety. France expanded its aerial bombing campaign, launching airstrikes for the first time in central Mali to combat the new threat. But the intense assault, including raids by gunship helicopters and Mirage fighter jets, failed to halt the advance of the rebels, who were only 250 miles from the capital, Bamako, in the far south. The rebels took Diabaly after fierce fighting and resistance from the Malian army, that couldnt hold them back, said Le Drian, the French defense minister. Malis military is in disarray and has let many towns fall with barely a shot fired since the insurgency in the West African nation began almost a year ago. While the al-Qaida-linked extremists control the north, they had been blocked in the narrow central part of the landlocked nation. They appear to have now done a flanking move, opening a second front in the broad southern section of the country, knifing in from the west on government forces. Deaths surpass US combat fatalities Associated PressWASHINGTON Suicides in the U.S. military surged to a record 349 last year, far exceeding American combat deaths in Afghanistan, and some private experts are predicting the dark trend will grow worse this year. The Pentagon has struggled to deal with the suicides, which Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and others have called an epidemic. The problem reflects severe strains on military personnel burdened with more than a decade of combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, complicated by anxiety over the prospect of being forced out of a shrinking force. Pentagon figures obtained Monday by The Associated Press show the 349 suicides among activeduty troops last year were up from 301 the year before and exceeded the Pentagons own internal projection of 325. Statistics alone do not explain why troops take their own lives, and the Pentagons military and civilian leaders have acknowledged that more needs to be done to understand the causes. Last years total is the highest since the Pentagon began closely tracking suicides in 2001. It exceeds the 295 Americans who died in Afghanistan last year, by the APs count. This is an epidemic that cannot be ignored, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., said Monday. As our newest generation of service members and veterans face unprecedented challenges, todays news shows we must be doing more to ensure they are not slipping through the cracks. Military suicides began rising in 2006 and soared to a then-record 310 in 2009 before leveling off for two years. It came as a surprise to many that the numbers resumed an upward climb this year, given that U.S. military involvement in Iraq is over and the Obama administration is taking steps to wind down the war in Afghanistan. Now that were decreasing our troops and theyre coming back home, thats when theyre really in the danger zone, when theyre transitioning back to their families, back to their communities and really finding a sense of purpose for themselves, said Kim Ruocco, whose husband, Marine Maj. John Ruocco, killed himself between Iraq deployments in 2005. She directs a suicide prevention program for a support group, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, or TAPS. The Army, by far the largest of the military services, had the highest number of suicides among active-duty troops last year at 182, but the Marine Corps, whose suicide numbers had declined for two years, had the largest percentage increase a 50 percent jump to 48.

In the end, Oak Hall prevailed 50-45 in a game whose outcome was in doubt until the final minute. The Warriors were led by Alexis Zachar with 20 points and Andrea Zachar with 10. The sisters combined for 21 rebounds and four blocked shots. Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer had nothing but praise for his team destire the loss. The girls played a good team and gave it everything they had, Dreyer said. Im very proud of their effort. Oak Hall used a full-court pressure defense that led to numerous Warrior turnovers and a lack of points being scored. Seven Rivers height advantage kept their opponent away from the basket and forced them to shoot from the outside. The Eagles hit only three of 10 shots but it was enough to take a 7-3 lead as the first quarter ended. At the start of the second quarter Seven Rivers was able to solve the pressure defense and its offense clicked into gear. The team started to find the open shooter and used quick passes for easy baskets. This forced the Eagles to abandon Gages 18 points leads Warriors past Eagles S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO Despite undergoing a pair of four-minute scoreless stretches in what was not near its sharpest game, the Seven Rivers Christian boys basketball squad cruised to a 50-31 victory over Oak Hall in the Warriors gym on Monday. It was a relatively tame affair between the former district rivals, with both teams featuring more of a half-court style of play that slowed the game down and kept shots at a minimum. I thought we gave a lot of effort, but I dont think we executed consistently on offense, Warriors head coach CR girls blast into semis Pirates soccer routs Taylor in District 2A-6 tourney C.J. RISAK CorrespondentOCALA Now is no time to relax. That was essentially the halftime message delivered by Crystal River girls soccer coach Bill Reyes to his team Monday during its District 2A-6 Tournament quarterfinal match against Pierson-Taylor at Ocala Trinity Catholic High School. The Pirates started quickly against the Wildcats, scoring twice in the first four minutes, then just as quickly faded for the remainder of the half. They bounced back in the second half, however, putting four balls into the Pierson-Taylor net to pull away to a 6-0 triumph. The victory allows secondseeded Crystal River, now 10-9-2, to advance to the district semifinals opposite third seed South Sumter. That match will be at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Trinity Catholic. Pierson-Taylor finishes at 5-16. We played a lot better in the second half than in the first, said senior midfielder Melissa Cang Cuesta, who scored one and assisted on another of the Pirates first three goals. I thought we passed real well in the second half and the score shows it. We had high expectations coming into this match and we scored real fast, then we diddle-daddled around a bit. Which is what led to Reyes halftime talk. That was typical of us in the first half, he said. We came out quickly, we got the lead and that gave us a cushion. Then we got off the cushion. If we dont come out hard and fast and keep it up, we leave the door open for our opponent. In the Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Playing his first Grand Slam match as a major winner, Andy Murray looked quite comfortable in his return to the Australian Open. Murray beat Robin Haase of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 in the opening round at Melbourne Park on Tuesday. Asked what it felt like to play after his triumph at the U.S. Open, where he became the first British man since 1936 to win a major title, the thirdranked Murray said: I can try and focus on the second part of my career now. The 25-year-old Murray seemed more at ease and relaxed than he has been in previous trips to the seasons first major. It was a good start, nice to win in straight sets, he said. It was the hottest day weve had for a while so the court was playing much quicker. After a record heat wave early last week, the last few days in Melbourne have been cool. The temperature was heading toward 84 degrees when Murray was on Rod Laver Arena. Its been 12 months since Murray started working with eight-time major winner Ivan Lendl, and he attributes much of the success in his breakthrough 2012 to his partnership with his new coach. Its relaxed in front of the cameras, yeah, Murray joked. Behind closed doors he works me very hard. Weve had a very good relationship so far. Hes very honest, very open. He doesnt lie to you, he tells you exactly how it is and thats exactly what I needed. Serena Williams overcame a right ankle injury to win her first match at the Australian Open, routing Edina Gallovits-Hall 6-0, 6-0 on Tuesday. With the match 19 minutes old and Williams leading 4-0, the 15-time major winner fell to the court awkwardly, clutching her right ankle. She was helped to her court-side chair and her ankle was heavily taped by a WTA trainer. The third-seeded Williams, attempting to win her third consecutive major title, returned to the court and won the next four points, then held service to take the opening set before again receiving treatment. She dominated the second set, allowing the Romanian player to win just six points.

B2 T UESDAY, J ANUARY15, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS SPORTS BRIEFS Dolphins planning $400M in stadium upgrades MIAMI GARDENS Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross unveiled a plan to modernize Sun Life Stadium on Monday, and promising to personally cover the majority of the $400 million estimated cost of the project. The rest would come from tax dollars, and that would likely need approval from both state and local lawmakers. However, Ross said that any public dollars for the project would not result in higher taxes for residents of Miami-Dade County. Instead, the Dolphins are looking for a slightly higher hotel tax in the county, as well as a larger state salestax rebate. And in return for the deal, the Dolphins say the deal would keep them in South Florida through at least 2034, though stopped short of saying that not getting public money would jeopardize the franchises future. They plan to add about 3,600 new seats closer to the field, improved amenities and a canopy roof that would shield fans from the elements of South Floridas often-harsh weather while preserving a natural-grass playing surface. Henderson, Linder, Porter return to MiamiCORAL GABLES Seantrel Henderson, Brandon Linder and Curtis Porter will return for their senior seasons at Miami. The trio made their announcements on Monday. Henderson started the final seven games of the 2012 season at right tackle for the Hurricanes, while Linder started all 12 at right guard and Porter was limited to only two starts at defensive tackle because of injury. With their decisions now final, Miami expects to have 20 of 22 offensive and defensive starters back next season. Irish RB Wood leaving for NFL SOUTH BEND, Ind. Notre Dame running back Cierre Wood wont be back for his final year of eligibility with the Fighting Irish. The 6-0, 215-pound senior from Oxnard, Calif., announced Monday he will enter the NFL draft, calling it a family decision. Wood was second on the team in 2012 in rushing with 742 yards on 114 carries, including rushing for 2 yards on four carries in a 42-14 loss to Alabama in the BCS title game. He rushed for 2,447 yards on 450 carries in three seasons with the Irish, finishing seventh on Notre Dames all-time list.No. 1 Louisvilles strong 2nd half downs UConn HARTFORD, Conn. Russ Smith scored 23 points and Gorgui Dieng had six points and 16 rebounds and Louisville, playing just hours after it moved to No. 1, used a strong second half to beat Connecticut 73-58 on Monday night. The Cardinals (16-1, 4-0 Big East) won their 11th straight game and like the others they relied on their star backcourt and pressure defense. Omar Calhoun led the Huskies (12-4, 2-2) with 20 points while Shabazz Napier added 12. No. 12 Purdue women win in three overtimesWEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Sam Ostarello had 22 points and 19 rebounds Monday night and No. 12 Purdue defeated Ohio State 82-75 in triple overtime. Courtney Moses led the Boilermakers (14-2, 3-0) with 24 points. Her layup late in the second extra period tied it at 68 after Ohio State had a 68-62 lead. All three of the Boilermakers Big 10 wins were in overtime. From wire reports CR scores 2-1 win on Senior Night 12-seeded Nadia Petrova of Russia 6-2, 6-0, and former No. 1ranked Caroline Wozniacki won the last six games to beat Sabine Lisicki of Germany 2-6, 6-3, 6-3. Former U.S. Open and French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova continued her comeback from a knee injury that kept her out of the U.S. Open, ending her run of 40 consecutive majors. Also, No. 14 Maria Kirilenko had a 6-4, 6-2 win over American Vania King, and Chinas Peng Shuai beat Canadas Rebecca Marino 6-3, 6-0. Novak Djokovic started his bid for a third consecutive Australian title on Monday, posting a 6-2, 6-4, 7-5 win over Paul-Henri Mathieu. Hello, everybody, its great to be back, he told the big crowd after his first match at Melbourne Park since his epic five-set win over Rafael Nadal in last years final. I have great memories. David Ferrer, who took the No. 4 seed when fellow Spaniard Nadal withdrew because of illness and injury, had only a couple of hundred people watching in cavernous Hisense Arena on Day 1. He opened with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Olivier Rochus of Belgium. Ferrer knows that without his compatriot in the draw, theres a semifinal spot up for grabs, but hes content to stay under the radar. Of course, Novak, Roger and Rafael and Murray theyve won Grand Slams, he said. Its very difficult for (another) player to win the first Grand Slam of his career. For me, I am trying to do my best. The majors in 2012 were shared by Djokovic, Nadal, Roger Federer and Murray, the dominant four men in recent years. Djokovic doesnt have another Grand Slam winner in his half of the draw after his Serbian Davis Cup teammate Janko Tipsarevic ousted Australian veteran Lleyton Hewitt, a former U.S. Open and Wimbledon winner. Murray is in the same half of the draw as Federer, who was opening against Benoit Paire of France on Rod Laver Arena immediately after womens champion Victoria Azarenka played Monica Niculescu of Romania. Congestion on center court means Serena Williams, the big favorite to win the womens title, will play her first-round match at Hisense Arena against Romanias Edina Gallovits-Hall, who is ranked No. 110. Thats the same court where her older sister, Venus, opened with a straight-set win Monday to move closer to a potential thirdround match against No. 2 Maria Sharapova, who won her first match 6-0, 6-0 in 55 minutes. Also advancing were No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 6 Li Na, No. 9 Samantha Stosur, No. 11 Marion Bartoli and No. 13 Ana Ivanovic and 17-year-old American Madison Keys. On the mens side, fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych, the 2010 Wimbledon finalist, beat American Michael Russell 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. Four American men also advanced Monday, led by No. 20 Sam Querrey, the highest-ranked U.S. man in the tournament after John Isner pulled out with an injury. Querrey beat Daniel Munozde la Nava of Spain 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. The others were Brian Baker, Tim Smyczek and Ryan Harrison, whose reward for beating Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 2-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 was a second-round match against Djokovic. AUSSIE Continued from Page B1 Pirates striker Swanson nets both goals S TEVE M C G UNNIGLE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER It wasnt the prettiest way to go out on Senior Night, but the Crystal River Pirates boys soccer team got what they ultimately wanted a 2-1 victory over visiting Leesburg on Monday night to send their seniors off the home pitch for one final time. Crystal River senior standout Travis Swanson scored both goals, the second on a penalty kick early in the second half. In the 46thminute, Swanson was knocked down by a Leesburg defender while in the box, setting up the winner. Swanson threw a subtle deke, then chipped the ball past the Yellow Jackets keeper to his right for the easy score. The Crystal River defense clamped down from there, and Pirate keeper Kyle Kidd notched 10 saves along the way. We never quit. Our goal this year was to finish games, Crystal River coach Bobby Verlato said. They got that goal, which put us on our heels. But then that PK really changed the momentum and from there we stepped up. Crystal River (7-7-6) withstood a late surge by Leesburg (6-6-3), while maintaining its cool as the game got chippy down the stretch. Each team had a yellow card in the second half, but with five minutes to go, Verlato watched his main concern unfold. Away from the ball during a Crystal River possession, Swanson was shoved hard to the ground unprovoked and seemingly intentionally by a Leesburg defender. The act went unseen by the referees, but Swanson would be forced to leave the game with a shoulder injury. After a timeout and plenty of jawing between the teams, the game was restarted with four minutes left and then immediately called over by the referee team, as unsportsmanlike play picked right back up where it left off, sealing the Pirate win. It was a complete game and we started playing like a team, Verlato said. There were individual good efforts in there Eric Hartwell, Adam Burns, and Travis got his 25thand 26thgoals tonight prior to the injury. We outshot them, Kyle Kidd played a great game, and the defense is strong. The lone Leesburg score came on a rare defensive miscue, as Tyler Ware stole the ball off the feet of the Crystal River defense inside the box, turning and firing for the score to knot it at at 1-1. Swnason opened the scoring off an assist from Andrew Dyakon in the eighth minute, taking the feed then following a deflected ball to just in front of the net, easily knocking it in past the extended keeper. Crystal River put 15 shots on goal to Leesburgs 11. The Pirates travel to West PortOcala for a 7:30 p.m. start tonight. AP source: Armstrong admits to doping Cyclist tells Oprah he used PEDs Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas After a decade of denial, Lance Armstrong has finally come clean: He used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France. The disgraced cyclist made the confession to Oprah Winfrey during an interview taped Monday, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfreys network. The admission Monday came hours after an emotional apology by Armstrong to the Livestrong charity that he founded and took global on the strength of his celebrity as a cancer survivor who came back to win one of sports most grueling events. The confession was a stunning reversal, after years of public statements, interviews and court battles in which he denied doping and zealously protected his reputation. Winfrey tweeted afterward, Just wrapped with (at)lancearmstrong More than 2 1/2 hours. He came READY! She was scheduled to appear on CBS This Morning on Tuesday to discuss the interview. Even before the taping session with Winfrey began around 2 p.m., EST, Armstrongs apology suggested he would carry through on promises over the weekend to answer her questions directly, honestly and candidly. The cyclist was stripped of his Tour de France titles, lost most of his endorsements and was forced to leave the foundation last year after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency issued a damning, 1,000-page report that accused him of masterminding a longrunning doping scheme. About 100 staff members of the charity Armstrong founded in 1997 gathered in a conference room as Armstrong arrived with a simple message: Im sorry. He choked up during a 20-minute talk, expressing regret for the long-running controversy tied to performance-enhancers had caused, but stopped short of admitting he used them. Magic blown out 120-91 on road Associated PressWASHINGTON Emeka Okafor had 19 points and 11 rebounds, leading six players in double figures for Washington in a 120-91 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday night for the Wizards third straight win. The Wizards were just 4-28 before their streak, but beat Oklahoma City, Atlanta and now Orlando all at home to nearly double their wins total. Washington leaves Tuesday on a five-game, eight-day road trip while the nations capital will be consumed by Inauguration ceremonies. John Wall had 12 points and six assists in 20 minutes in his second game of the season after missing the Wizards first 33 with a left knee injury. Washington shot a season-best 56.1 percent, scored its most points and had its largest winning margin of the season. A.J. Price and Kevin Seraphin had 18, Bradley Beal scored 17, and Jan Vesely matched his season high with 10. Jameer Nelson had 19 points and 12 assists to lead Orlando, and Nikola Vucevic added 13 points and 13 rebounds. Arron Afflalo, who had 30 points against the Clippers, missed 10 of 11 from the field and finished with two points. Orlando hoped it would be bolstered by the return of Glen Davis and ETwaun Moore, who were both hurt in games against Washington. Davis, who had 13 points, sprained his right shoulder in the Magics win over the Wizards on Dec. 19. Orlando then lost 10 straight before winning on Saturday at the Los Angeles Clippers. In the fourth loss in that stretch to Washington Moore sprained his right elbow. The Wizards led the entire game. They were ahead 28-22 after one and outscored the Magic 31-18 to take a 59-40 lead with 1:53 to play in the first half, but Orlando ended the period on a 13-0 tear with Nelson scoring eight straight points on two 3-pointers and a jumper. He passed to Josh McRoberts for a dunk to end the half, pulling the Magic to 59-53. Clippers 99, Grizzlies 73 MEMPHIS, Tenn. Reserves Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes each scored 16 points, and the Los Angeles Clippers easily routed the Memphis Grizzlies 99-73 with Chris Paul missing his first game this season because of a bruised right kneecap. The matchup between two of the best teams in the West wasnt close much of the way. While Paul watched from the bench, the Grizzlies were without their leading scorer as Rudy Gay was excused for his grandmothers funeral in Baltimore. This also was the Clippers first trip to Memphis since they won Game 7 of their opening-round playoff series last May, and they held the Grizzles to a season-low in points. Eric Bledsoe, starting for Paul, had 14 points, and Blake Griffin scored 10. Zach Randolph had 15 for Memphis. Wayne Ellington added 11, and Darrell Arthur had 10.Bulls 97, Hawks 58 CHICAGO Carlos Boozer scored 20 points, Luol Deng added 18 and the Chicago Bulls held Atlanta to a franchise-low 20 points in the first half of a 97-58 victory over the Hawks. Reserve forward Mike Scott scored nine points to lead Atlanta as none of the starters reached double figures. Josh Smith and Kyle Korver had nine points each. The Bulls held the Hawks to just five points in the second quarter and led 48-20 at the break. Ivan Johnson had a basket for the Hawks with 2:54 left in the first quarter, and Atlanta did not score again until Al Horfords tip with 5:15 left in the second. The Hawks missed 17 consecutive shots during the drought while getting outscored 14-0. Celtics 100, Bobcats 89 BOSTON Rajon Rondo scored 17 points with 12 assists and 10 rebounds to lead the Boston Celtics to a 100-89 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. It was Rondos third triple-double of the season and the 26th of his career, including playoffs. Paul Pierce scored 19 and Avery Bradley added 16 for Boston, which won for a season-high sixth consecutive game. Kevin Garnett, who needed 13 points to tie Patrick Ewing for 16th on the NBAs career scoring list, was 2 for 11 from the field and scored just seven points to go with his 10 rebounds. Hakim Warrick and Ramon Sessions had 16 points apiece for the Bobcats.

The second period was all Seven Rivers as the Warriors outscored their opponent 22-5 to take a 25-12 halftime lead. As the second half got underway, the Oak Hall girls returned to the pressure defense they started the game with, to great effect. The Eagles forced turnovers and turned them into points. The Eagles went on a 13-0 run to pull within two points before the Warriors were able to score their first basket of the second half. Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer called a timeout, which seemed to settle his team and cool the Eagles hot hand. The Warriors started using their height down low to score easy baskets and went on a six-point run to give them some breathing room. Oak Hall would not fold as they went on an 11-point run to regain the lead 36-33. The third quarter ended with the Eagles Madison OLeary making a three-point shot from way behind the arc as the buzzer sounded. The fourth quarter started with the Eagles holding a four point lead and that was the largest lead until the final seconds. Seven Rivers tied the score twice but were never able to pull ahead. As the clock ran down, the Warriors were forced to foul and the Eagles Taylor Tomlinson made all four of her foul shots to put the game away. Jim Ervin said. Defensively, we played pretty well for most of the stretch. But we didnt run our offensive sets from half-court and we didnt push the ball with the pass, which got us in trouble a couple of times. Seven Rivers (8-6 overall) opened to a 13-1 advantage before Eagles sophomore Trevor Pope, who paced 3A Oak Hall (3-9) with 14 points, made his clubs first field goal with 35 seconds remaining in the first period. After leading 15-7 with three minutes left in the half, junior Adam Gage (game-high 18 points, eight rebounds) and freshman guard Zac Saxer (five rebounds) each scored five points in the final two minutes of the half to help their Warriors to a 25-12 advantage at the break. Seven Rivers sophomore guard Cory Weiand tallied nine of his 14 points in the third period before senior guard John Iwaniec culminated the quarter with a 2 at the buzzer to secure a 40-16 lead for the Warriors. The Eagles played better in the fourth quarter behind five team steals and 3-pointers by three different players over a 2:30 span, narrowing the Warrior advantage to 42-29 midway through the period. But Oak Hall scored just once more in the final four minutes, leaving the Warriors to a comfortable 19-point triumph. Seven Rivers senior Jared Bogart, an undersized 5-foot-11 power forward who said he aims for 10 boards a night, led all rebounders with nine rebounds while also scoring nine points. Im kind of undersized to be playing down low sometimes, but I just try to use my strength and box out as much as I can, which coach is always telling us, Bogart said. And I think I can jump pretty high, so I try to use that and my quickness to my advantage against taller guys. I really enjoy the defensive side of the game. The Warriors, who are finished with district play and have secured a third seed for the tournament, travel to Ocala Christian Academy, tonight for a 7:30 p.m. game before returning home for a matchup with Crystal River on Thursday. Crystal Rivers good, Ervin said. (Pirates head coach Steve) Feldmans really turned them around, so were looking forward to playing them. perfect cross to me, Lammer continued. And then I had to kind of calm down because I was excited and just shoot. Lammers goal also punched the Lady Canes ticket to the semifinal match in Leesburg on Wednesday against No. 2 seed Eustis, an 8-0 winner Monday against No. 7 Tavares. The series of goals late in the second half, started by Miller who led her team with shots on frame as well marked the beginning of a more focused team who hadnt looked as in control of the ball for much of the first 60 minutes of play. Overall, Im happy that we won but I was disappointed in our play, Citrus head coach Ian Feldt said. We came in extremely over-confident. We played with no sense of urgency. No intensity. And credit Hernando, they played really tough and they had nothing to lose. The Hurricanes defeated the Leopards 4-0 in their one and only meeting Nov. 30 during the regular season. The lone Leopard goal came in the 48th minute off Erika Lewis corner kick, which managed to sail just over Elizabeth Rinaldis outstretched hands to find the back of the net. Rinaldi started the game in goal for the Hurricanes before taking over at midfield after Hernandos goal. Citrus easily outshot Hernando 19-4 in the game, but Feldt gave credit to a physical Leopards defense. They didnt give us anything easy, Feldt said of Hernando. It wasnt like they had breakdowns. Lammer credits Millers goal as the key moment in the game that changed Citrus fortune. The team was really nervous and tense (after Hernandos goal), Lammer said. (Millers goal) put us back in. Feldt hopes the struggles his team faced against Hernando serves as a wakeup call for the Lady Canes as it only gets tougher as they advance through districts. If we dont come out playing our best against Eustis, Feldt said. Its going to be real tough. second half, we were much better. It certainly didnt take long for the Pirates to assert themselves. The opening kickoff was played back to Cuesta, who sent a ball through the center of the defense to Brooke Levins for the finish. Crystal River had a 1-0 lead after 13 seconds. The Pirates doubled their advantage in just 3:36, with Aubrey Menster fielding a crossing pass into the middle and putting it into the net for a 2-0 lead. But thats what the score read at halftime, with Crystal River unable to add to its total despite numerous chances. It concerned Reyes; when these teams met in the regular season, the Pirates won 6-3, Pierson-Taylor scoring goals on a corner kick, a direct kick and a penalty kick. His concern proved misplaced. Cuesta penetrated down the left side of the defense to score with 32:35 left in the second half, and Cheyenna Tito Lyons made it 4-0 by lofting a shot over the keeper with 23:54 to play. Christina Bresson put a shot in out of a scrum after a corner kick and Natalie Ezzell fielded a pass from Delaney Owens on the left side and placed another ball over the keeper to round out Crystal Rivers scoring. Reyes knows the formula to advance to the district final. Weve got to minimize our lapses and play to the best of our ability, and not to our opponents ability, he said.

The taut political thriller Homeland, the coming of age comedy Girls and Game Change, the movie about Sarah Palins rocky campaign for the vice presidency in 2008, were the big television winners in the Golden Globes. The biggest losers? Commercial broadcast networks ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox none of which aired those shows. One award for PBS saved broadcast television from a complete shutout. Premium cable rivals HBO and Showtime battled for supremacy throughout Sunday nights telecast. In the end, HBO pulled out a 5-4 victory. Its the only place to have made a show like this, Lena Dunham said backstage after the series she created for HBO, Girls, won two Globes. Cable television is the only place where Im going to get the kinds of stories I want to tell funded. Girls was named best comedy and Dunham, who stars as Hannah Horvath in the series about young women in their 20s navigating young adulthood in New York City, was named best comic actress. With the exception of fellow HBO actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus (star of Veep), the other nominees in the best actress category worked for broadcast networks: Golden Globe co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and Zooey Deschanel, star of Foxs New Girl. Dunham thanked her fellow nominees for helping her get through middle school, mono, a ruptured eardrum and the acute anxiety that populates my entire life. This award is for everyone who felt like there wasnt a space for her, Dunham said. This show has made a space for me. Showtimes Homeland scored a sweep of the biggest drama awards, including best TV drama for the second year in a row. Co-stars Claire Danes, who plays CIA agent Carrie Mathison, and Damian Lewis, who stars as Sgt. Nicholas Brody, both won top acting awards. Lewis emotionally dedicated his award to his late mother, while Danes paid to tribute to her baby son. Alex Ganza, executive producer of Homeland, recalled an arduous night of filming where star Claire Danes, eight months pregnant, had to do multiple takes being chased in a drainage pipe. Lewis said the last 18 months working on Homeland have been an exciting, wonderful journey. He said that picking up a piece of hardware like this is a great perk, holding up his Globe. Danes said she was very proud to be working in this medium in this moment in this company. Showtimes fourth award went to Don Cheadle, named best comedy actor for his role as Marty Kaan, leader of a team of slippery management consultants in House of Lies. Game Change was named best TV movie or miniseries. Julianne Moore won as best actress in a miniseries or movie for her portrayal of Palin while Ed Harris although he portrayed the man on the top of the ticket, presidential candidate John McCain was the supporting actor winner. Jay Roach, executive producer of the show, said Moore was brave to take on the role of a political polarizing figure in the film, which balances her appeal as a sudden national figure and the chaos backstage in the campaign. Now with you and Tina Fey, we have three of the most incredible impersonations of Sarah Palin, Roach said, counting Sarah Palin. Makers of Game Change said they attempted to build a balanced portrait of Palin, and Moore said backstage Sunday that it was not a character assassination. Although Palin aides criticized the depiction, the former Alaska governor told ABC News the film did not matter to her. One of the things I found in my research is that shes an incredibly devoted parent and cares very much about what she does, Moore said. The conclusion I drew was she was simply unprepared for the vice presidency. Kevin Costner won the Globe for best acting in a TV miniseries or movie for Hatfields & McCoys. The History channel miniseries proved a big hit when it aired last spring. Costner, who won a Globe for directing Dances With Wolves in 1991, nostalgically recalled walking into the awards ceremony as a young actor. Veteran actress Maggie Smith, who plays Violet Crawley, the Countess of Grantham in the PBS period piece Downton Abbey, won as best supporting actress in a TV series.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if you have difficulties in managing certain jobs assigned to you, do the very best work that you can. Youll be better able to cope with things knowing that you tried your best. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It doesnt matter how busy you are or how many projects you start, what really counts is how much you complete. If youre smart, youll be mindful of your limitations.

C ANDICE C HOI AP Food Industry WriterNEW YORK Coca-Cola became one of the worlds most powerful brands by equating its soft drinks with happiness. Now its taking to the airwaves for the first time to address a growing cloud over the industry: obesity. The Atlanta-based company on Monday will begin airing a two-minute spot during the highest-rated shows on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC in hopes of flexing its marketing muscle in the debate over sodas and their impact on public health. The ad lays out Coca-Colas record of providing drinks with fewer calories over the years and notes that weight gain is the result of consuming too many calories of any kind not just soda. The company declined to say how much it was spending on the commercials, which it started putting together last summer. For Coca-Cola, the worlds No. 1 beverage company, the ads reflect the mounting pressures on the broader industry. Later this year, New York City is set to put into effect a first-in-the-nation cap on the size of soft drinks sold at restaurants, movie theaters, sports arenas and other venues. The mayor of Cambridge, Mass., has already proposed a similar measure, saying she was inspired by New Yorks move. And when PepsiCo Inc., the No. 2 soda maker, recently signed a wide-ranging endorsement deal with pop singer Beyonce, critics called for her to drop the contract or donate the funds to groups that fund health initiatives. Recent studies have also suggested that sugary drinks cause people to pack on the pounds, independent of other behavior. A decades-long study involving more than 33,000 Americans, for example, suggested that drinking sugary beverages interacts with genes that affect weight and amplifies a persons risk of obesity beyond what it would be from heredity alone. Mike Jacobson, executive director for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, was skeptical about the intent behind Coca-Colas ads and said that if the company was serious about helping reduce obesity, it would stop fighting soda taxes. It looks like a page out of damage control 101, he said. Theyre trying to disarm the public. The Center for Science in the Public Interest has been critical of the soft drink industry and last year released a video parodying Cokes famous polar bears becoming plagued with diabetes and other health problems from drinking too much soda. Coca-Cola said its ads arent a reaction to negative public sentiment, however. Instead, the idea is to raise awareness about lower-calorie drinks and what it plans to do in coming months, said Stuart Kronauge, general manager of sparkling Marketing push H EALTH & L IFE A few weeks ago, I wrote about the potential benefit of a glass of wine a day. For those of you who dont drink wine, here is some other possibly good news. A new study has found a strong association between caffeinated coffee intake and death from cancers of the mouth and throat. The researchers found people who drank more than four cups of caffeinated coffee per day were at about half the risk of death of these often fatal cancers compared to those who only Coffee, caffeine and cancer See BENNETT / Page C5 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Revised screening guidelines C ervical cancer is an extremely preventable cancer. It is caused by infection by a virus called HPV, or Human Papilloma Virus. This virus is most commonly passed from person to person during sexual activity. There are different types, or strains, of HPV, and some strains are more strongly associated with certain types of cancers. HPV vaccines protect against certain strains of the virus. With more advanced understanding of this virus and its role in causing cervical cancer, recent guidelines for R ural areas have always had issues with being underserved as far as medical care goes, and there is not likely any relief in the future with the continuing economic problems and predicted shortage of health care providers. There are about 50 million Americans who lack access to quality primary care due to their rural settings and shortages of medical providers. Only about 10 percent of Americas doctors practice in rural America, but nearly one-fourth of Americas population resides in a rural area, making the delivery of care a challenge. Some estimates suggest that there is a need for about 50,000 to 60,000 health care providers needed to resolve this problem; this includes physicians, nurses, and medical assistants. Challenges to deliver rural medicine can include harsh weather as well as travel and transportation difficulties. Also, some of the difficulties in Rural medical care I m welcoming the New Year with a different view out of my office window. The end of the old year brought with it the end of a job. The normal nostalgia of December was coupled with a flood of memories as I departed the Health Department for a new position with The Centers in Lecanto. Transitions are always difficult, even under the best of circumstances, and I had the best circumstances at the Health Department. Ive left a great support system behind: laughter and tears with co-workers, unbelievable encouragement and trust from administration, and of course the clients with whom Ive been blessed to share a season of their lives.

C2 T UESDAY, J ANUARY15, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE H EALTH& L IFE Differential diagnoses look at alternate causes of a problem N ot knowing the diagnosis of a patients complaint after a history and examination is undesirable, but does happen. Physicians are able to evaluate patients, their complaints, test results and arrive at the correct diagnosis and help in rapid order much more often than not. This is not always the case. This occurs in any profession where diagnosis of a problem is necessary. It is important, however, to refer for testing, a specialist, or for a second opinion based on differential diagnosis when the cause of symptoms can not be ascertained. It is also important when attempts at treatment have provided no benefit or the condition is worsening. Differential diagnoses are what physicians are taught to come up with as possible causes for a patients problem or problems in addition to the primary diagnosis. The differential diagnoses are important as a fall-back diagnosis to look in other directions for the cause of pain or disease if the obvious or primary diagnosis is incorrect. Having differential diagnoses helps the doctor help the patient, as they serve as contingencies and time savers in getting to the root of the problem so the most appropriate treatment, test or referral can be made in a timely fashion. A patient with heel pain may tell me they are convinced they have a heel spur based on what other people have told them. Many times they are correct in diagnosing plantar fascitis, but there are also times they are not and treatment for plantar fascitis will not help. Stress fracture of the heel, fatpad atrophy, bone tumor or cyst, flexor tendonitis, lumbar radiculopathy, gout and bursitis are some of the other common causes of heel pain. These are differential diagnoses that must be considered if treatment for heel spur or plantar fascitis fails or does not coincide with a patients history or physical examination. Treatment for fascitis when the real problem is radiculopathy will always fail. A red, hot, painful and swollen toe could be an ingrown toenail. Gout, trauma or ill-fitting shoes in a patient with neuropathy, peripheral artery disease or microembolization, cellulitis, osteomyelitis and lumbar radiculopathy could also be etiologies of red, hot, painful and swollen toes. Antibiotics will not help a gout attack. Do not be afraid to ask what else could cause the symptoms you are experiencing. I find this often helps me as the discussion with a patient often brings more clues to light in finding the cause of the problem, or helps solidify the diagnosis that has been made. David B. Raynor.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, J ANUARY15, 2013 C3 Emergency preparedness extends to drug safety Q : What medication concerns should I have in case of a flood or other natural disaster? A: This is a good question, especially during hurricane season. The FDA recently (2012) issued a consumer bulletin for the safe use of drugs that have been potentially affected by fire, flooding or unsafe water, and lack of refrigeration after a natural disaster. Drugs Exposed to Excessive Heat, such as Fire: The effectiveness of drugs can be destroyed by high temperatures. You should consider replacing your medications if theres a possibility that your medication was exposed to excessive heat, such as in a fire. It is especially important to assure the effectiveness of lifesaving drugs and these should be replaced as soon as possible. However, if the lifesaving medication in its container looks normal to you, the medication can be used until a replacement is available. Drugs Exposed to Unsafe Water: Drugs (pills, oral liquids, drugs for injection, inhalers, skin medications) that are exposed to flood or unsafe municipal water may become contaminated and lead to diseases that can cause serious health effects. The FDA recommends that drug products even those in their original containers should be discarded if they have come into contact with flood or contaminated water. In the ideal setting, capsules, tablets and liquids in drug containers with screw-top caps, snap lids or droppers should be discarded if they are contaminated. In addition, medications that have been placed in any alternative storage containers should be discarded if they have come in contact with flood or contaminated water. In many situations, these drugs may be lifesaving and replacements may not be readily available. For these lifesaving drugs, if the container is contaminated but the contents appear unaffected (i.e., if the pills are dry) they may be used until replacements can be obtained. However, if a pill is wet, it is contaminated and should be discarded. Reconstituted Drugs: For childrens drugs that have to be made into a liquid using water (reconstituted), the drug should only be reconstituted with purified or bottled water. Liquids other than water should not be used to reconstitute these products. Drugs that Need Refrigeration: Some drugs require refrigeration (for example, insulin, somatropin and drugs that have been reconstituted). If electrical power has been off for a long time, the drug should be discarded. However, if the drug is absolutely necessary to sustain life (insulin, for example), it may be used until a new supply is available. Because temperature sensitive drugs lose potency if not refrigerated, they should be replaced with a new supply as soon as possible. For example, insulin that is not refrigerated has a shorter shelf life than the labeled expiration date. If a contaminated product is considered medically necessary and would be difficult to replace quickly, you should contact a health care provider (for example, Red Cross, poison control, health departments, etc.) for guidance. If you are concerned about the efficacy or safety of a particular product, contact your pharmacist, health care provider or the manufacturers customer service department.

GROUPS Continued from Page C3C4 T UESDAY, J ANUARY15, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE H EALTH& L IFE screening of cervical cancer are revised. Until now, a pap test was the only available test for screening for cervical cancer. Now a new test called HPV DNA testing is also available. Pap tests have been done yearly in the past, but we now know that annual screening is not needed and can lead to harm from treatment of cell changes that would never go on to cause cancer, according to Dr. Debbie Saslow, director of breast and gynecologic cancer for the American Cancer Society. New guidelines recommend for screening to start at age 21, regardless of when a woman becomes sexually active. The groups concluded most HPV infections, which are spread through sexual contact, and cervical changes that are detected before this age would likely resolve on their own and not become cancerous. The recommendations also extend the time interval between tests. Women ages 21 to 65 should be screened with the pap test every three years. Women ages 30 to 65 who have the HPV DNA test and the pap test (co-testing) can be screened every five years. When not to screen Women who have had a hysterectomy and no longer have a cervix should not be screened, according to the new guidelines. Likewise, women older than 65 should not be screened if they have had three consecutive negative pap tests or two consecutive negative co-tests within 10 years, and the last test was administered within five years. However, women with a history of cervical precancer or a cancer diagnosis should continue screening as recommended by their physician, according to the new guidelines, for at least 20 years, even if it means testing after age 65. In addition, the guidelines recommend against using the HPV DNA test alone in women of any age or using co-testing in women younger than 30 years of age, because HPV is common in young women, but the vast majority of HPV infections are transient. This new set of guidelines will reduce the number of pap smears. This also avoids unnecessary further testing if a pap test is questionable. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHI Continued from Page C1 implementing health care initiatives and reforms are easier to do in a more sophisticated, urban setting. Newer, younger doctors who are not from a rural setting will reluctantly practice in rural areas because of the fact they are used to being in a more dense doctor population. The training centers typically provide a lot of resources and abundant supplies, and the ability to bounce ideas off of other doctors. This is difficult to do in a rural setting, particularly if you are the only show in town. Access to technology is another reason. Doctors prefer to provide the best for their patients, and fear if they move to a rural area they may have to compromise that ideal. Technology, as we all know, is very expensive and much easier to implement in a larger center where there are multiple doctors using and utilizing the technology. Sometimes in these cases the more complicated medical problems are better suited to be done at a large hospital or teaching center, and that is also the importance of a rural doctor to understand what he can do well, and what more importantly he cannot do well and needs to refer out. The latest statistics suggest less than 5 percent of medical school graduates plan on living and practicing in a rural or small town. Some ideas have been hatched as a result of this problem, and they include starting medical schools in rural or small communities that have a percentage of seats devoted in each class to students who will commit to returning to smaller rural settings. Also, choosing candidates from small rural areas will make them more likely to return to those areas and serve the underserved patient population. This is probably more practical with primary care specialties such as family practice: pediatrics, internal medicine, OB/GYN and general surgery. As the subspecialties become more sophisticated and more technologically driven, they are likely to remain in larger centers. To bridge the gap problem, there may be the ability to utilize computers, as well as telemedicine, and maybe even import a subspecialist once in a while to address these difficult medical problems and difficult patients. The U.S. government has looked at several ideas, including seeking international medical school graduates who are accustomed to practicing in rural areas, recruiting them to the United States. The National Health Service Corps is also expanding its programs by providing scholarships and loans to assist medical students who are interested in practicing in underserved areas. As our population grows, the trend is still to remain around large metropolitan areas, so small towns and rural areas will still be difficult to serve. Years ago, when there were plenty of health care providers, it only took a few months to fill the shoes of a retiring health care provider. Now it seems like it takes years, and it is much more complicated and difficult to retain someone in these areas. As a doctor who has practiced in a rural area for more than 25 years, I understand the rigors of practicing in these circumstances, but the benefits are undeniable. You live in a community with nice people who you get to know and see on a regular basis, which cannot be done in a larger center. Hopefully, these advantages will hit home with some of the younger doctors starting out, and in the future we may not have this problem.

GRILLO Continued from Page C1 Those of us with dysfunctional family backgrounds tend to mishandle transitions. We are known to throw tantrums and create quite a bit of drama, leaving a trail of emotional wreckage heaped with the refuse of anger and shame in our wake. Or we can avoid the change altogether and never have any closure in our lives, just blindly hop from one open door to the next. Since I began my recovery, I have made a lot of progress in the leavings of my life moving them from rollercoaster traumas into choreographed exits, packaged highly programmed and unemotional. At this particular transition, Ive made it a personal mission to continue to bond and build on the relationships I was leaving while in the midst of the leaving process. For many years, I battled with the emotion called sad. Sadness was a pervasive theme in my early childhood and I spent years in recovery keeping relationships superficial so I could leave or be left without the accompanying sad feelings. I often left friendships just to show that I could walk away, their loss, not mine. This emotional game worked relatively well to keep me protected from sadness. Sad threw me back into those anxious times of my childhood when I was at the mercy of the state of my parents marital troubles. Sad defined a condition of being out of control, empty, and lost. Sad was to be avoided at all costs, because the wounds were severe and potentially life-threatening. What I found was a profound peace at my departure weird, right? I felt all the tough feelings. Sad was right up there, making tears that poured from my eyes, wistful memories threading through my mind in the weeks leading up to my leaving. But there were other emotions competing for air time, bringing calm and lightheartedness to those last days. Along with the old jokes revisited, there were new jokes hatched. Commitments were made and dates set for reconnecting in other venues. Messages of congratulations and well-wishes were received by my brain and cherished instead of dismissed or ignored. My exit complete, Im turning toward this next beginning. I am delighted and blessed to have been asked to become the Director of Citrus County Services for The Centers. I will oversee the programs and staff, build new partnerships and collaborations for our community, and will inspire our staff and community to successfully fulfill the mission of The Centers. This is a wonderful challenge, and Im very excited to embrace these opportunities. I need all of your prayers, thoughts and support as I move forward. Maintaining my column as I move into my new job is a special perk, and I relish the opportunity to continue my connection with my readers.

GROUPS Continued from Page C5 beverages for Coca-Cola North America. Theres an important conversation going on about obesity out there, and we want to be a part of the conversation, she said. In the ad, a narrator notes that obesity is an issue that concerns all of us but that people can make a difference when they come together. The spot was produced by Brighthouse and Citizen2 and is intended to reflect Coca-Colas corporate responsibility among cable news viewers. Another ad, which will run later this week during American Idol and before the Super Bowl, is much more reminiscent of catchy, upbeat advertising people have come to expect from Coca-Cola. It features a montage of activities that add up to burning off the happy calories in a can of Coke: walking a dog, dancing, sharing a laugh with friends and doing a victory dance after bowling a strike. The 30-second ad, a version of which ran in Brazil last month, is intended to address confusion about the number of calories in soda, said Diana Garza Ciarlante, a spokeswoman for Coca-Cola Co. She said the companys consumer research showed people thought there were as many as 900 calories in a can of soda. When talking about calories and weight gain, Garza Ciarlante noted that the company had to be careful with the ads to remain consistent with its brand voice and avoid sounding preachy. Coca-Cola declined to give details on what it plans for the year ahead. But among the options under consideration is putting the amount of activity needed to burn off the calories in a drink on cans and bottles. The company noted it has already made several moves to help customers make better choices, such as putting calorie counts on the front of its cans and bottles in the U.S. Last year, it also started posting calorie information on its vending machines ahead of a regulation that will require soda companies to do so by 2014. Public concern over the calories in soda is apparent in Coca-Colas changing business. In North America, all the growth in its soda business over the past 15 years has come from lowand no-calorie drinks, such as Coke Zero. Diet sodas now account for nearly a third of its sales in the U.S. and Canada. Other beverages such as sports drinks and bottled water are also fueling growth. Even with the growing popularity of diet sodas, however, overall soda consumption in the U.S. has declined steadily since 1998, according to the industry tracker Beverage Digest.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, J ANUARY15, 2013 C5 Dental staff help catch oral cancer early I wanted to share some important information about oral cancer and how it has come into my life on a personal level. For those of you who dont know me, my name is Lisa and I have been Dr. Vasciminis office manager since 1993. My uncle, who is very much like my father, was diagnosed with oral cancer a few days before Christmas. His hygienist and dentist have no doubt saved his life. At his last dental cleaning, his hygienist noticed a suspicious spot on his tongue. She alerted the dentist, and my uncle was sent for a biopsy. The oral surgeon did the biopsy and it came back inconclusive. Rather than wait and see what happens, the oral surgeon did another biopsy and it confirmed my uncle does have oral cancer. My uncle has never smoked a day in his life. On Christmas Eve morning, he had an appointment with the oncologist and they mapped out his course of treatment, which includes surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. With this type of surgery, and because of the location of the cancer on his tongue, he will have to have a feeding tube for a period of three to four weeks while his tongue heals. As bad as all this sounds, he is a very lucky man. His oncologist said if this was left undiagnosed, it would have spread into his lymph nodes and he would be looking at lymphoma, as well. I am happy to report his PET scan showed his cancer did not spread anywhere else. He does a have a rough road ahead; however, he is healthy, has a great team of doctors and is being treated at one of the countrys most prestigious hospitals. He is expected to recover from this and lead a normal life. One very important part of this story is how it all began and how his dental hygienist found this suspicious spot and so his story of cancer began. I cant emphasize enough the importance of including your dentist as a member of your health care team. Its also important to see the same dentist and hygienist, if possible; they really become very familiar with your mouth and can pick up on any changes quickly, just like my uncles hygienist did. The misconception has always been that dentistry is just cosmetics this is so far from the truth. Your dentist and hygienist are very important in caring for many aspects of your overall health. I have always known that, and now it has hit too close to home. If you have been putting off going to your dentist for whatever reason, please make an appointment it could save your life!

Dr. Frank Vascimini SOUND BITES PUSH Continued from Page C1 occasionally or who never drank coffee. The study is published online in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Previous research studies have suggested that coffee intake is associated with reduced risk of cancer of the mouth and throat. To explore the finding further, researchers examined associations of caffeinated coffee, decaffeinated coffee and tea intake with fatal mouth and throat cancer in the Cancer Prevention Study II, a prospective U.S. cohort study begun in 1982 by the American Cancer Society. Among 968,432 men and women who were cancerfree at enrollment, 868 deaths due to mouth and throat cancer occurred during 26 years of follow-up. The researchers found consuming more than four cups of caffeinated coffee per day was associated with a 49 percent lower risk of mouth and throat cancer death relative to no or occasional coffee intake. A dose-related decline in the relative risk was observed with each single cup per day consumed. The association was independent of sex, smoking status or alcohol use. There was a suggestion of a similar link among those who drank more than two cups per day of decaffeinated coffee, although that finding was only marginally significant. No association was found for tea drinking. The findings are unique in that they are based specifically upon fatal cases of mouth and throat cancer occurring over a 26year period in a population of individuals who were followed very carefully and who were cancerfree at enrollment in Cancer Prevention Study II. The impact of this research could be huge. Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, and contains a variety of antioxidants and other biologically active compounds that may help to protect against development or growth of cancers. Although it is less common in the United States, mouth and throat cancer is among the 10 most common cancers in the world. This study adds to the evidence of a possible protective effect of caffeinated coffee in the development and growth of cancers of the mouth and throat. It may be of considerable interest to investigate whether coffee consumption can lead to a better prognosis after cancers of the mouth and throat have been diagnosed. Makes me want that morning cup of coffee. Dr. C. Joseph Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist and a member of the Citrus County Unit of the American Cancer Society.

Pam Schreck practically brought down the house with an impromptu version of Ice Cream Joe after plucking Joe Plum from the audience to assist her. It was a song that she had performed as a junior high teenager. When Shier Sr. was performing Richie Valens La Bamba, Monica Tichaeur chimed in and gave a rousing rendition that garnered applause, applause, applause! Tailor made for Encores theatrical style, Win, Lose or Die was a spoof rendering of a lyrical pursuit show. With a skeleton script, it was an improvised, ad-lib, move-on musical game show. Whodunit pros were Tim Danowksi as Joe Vo, Ted Taylor as Les Parker, Michael Shier II as Furlong Shemp, Pam Schreck as Del Spiggens, Ashley Kisner as Judy Dawson, and Laura Radecki and Mike Shier Sr. as Daisy and Sparky. Brittany Malicorte served as the cue card girl. Jackie Shier was the costume assistant and kitchen manager with her staff, Stephanie Santiago and Cameron Puopolo. Audience contestants were Mark Beshears, Ted Taylor, Caroll Bowers, Lydia Valentine, and L.P Archer. During the progression of the plot, we heard Let It Be, TV theme songs from All in the Family, 1960s hits Downtown and California Dreamin and Beatles songs, including Yesterday and Cant Buy Me Love, dueling lyrics of Jailhouse Rock and Heartbreak Hotel, Elvis Presley standards, and after Suspicious Minds, Mike Shier Sr. uttered Presleys, Thank you, very much, indicative of the Kings Southern demeanor. Swinging along with the cast of talented musicians, we thrilled to their versions of The Girl From Ipanema and Walkin in Memphis. Pam Shrecks aggressive promotion of Fruit City Beverage was a riot. Mike Shier II joined her with the introduction of Mocha Coke. Ashley Shier and Mike Shier Sr. gave a stellar performance of Barry Manilows Copacabana. Uproarious laughter was evoked as Kisner as Judy attempts to administer CPR to Mike II as the questions begin to surface: Who did it? How? Why? Each character mingles through the audience trying to convince us they were innocent. In the end we learned that it was Mike Shier Sr. as Sparky. As the entire cast assembled on the stage and sang Money Cant Be Love and Goodnight Sweetheart, another entertainment treat came to an end and it was hugs all around for all of us as we exited the hall. Watch for Encore Ensembles next theatrical adventure coming soon. To join the players, you can call Mike Shier Sr., president, at 352-601-3506.

T UESDAY, J ANUARY15, 2013 C7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. William James, an eminent 18thand 19thcentury psychologist, said, To study the abnormal is the best way of understanding the normal. Todays deal seems to contain a normal play, but is it time for an abnormal one? South is in three no-trump. West leads the diamond king. What should declarer do? South had seven top tricks: one spade, one heart, one diamond and four clubs. He saw that at least two more tricks would come from spades. And since he knew a Bath Coup when he saw one, he played his low diamond at trick one. However, East had correctly played his diamond three. And West knew that his partner would have thrown out the jack or ace if he had held it, or played a high spot card. So West cleverly shifted to the heart jack. This time, East encouraged enthusiastically with his nine. Declarer ducked, but West continued with the heart 10, and East accurately overtook with his queen. Now South could not succeed. If he had taken this trick, crossed to the dummy with a club, and tried the spade finesse, West would have won with his king and led his last heart to give the defenders one spade, four hearts and one diamond. And if South had ducked the second heart, East would have reverted to diamonds, giving the defense one spade, two hearts and four diamonds (unless declarer cashed his seven top tricks). South should have won the first trick, crossed to the dummy, and run the spade queen. Yes, the finesse would have lost, but declarers diamond jack-four would have been a stopper with West on lead.

These trips included lunches and dinners with my co-workers, sometimes in groups, sometimes not. At no time did I ever have the faintest interest in having an affair. But my husband thinks otherwise. During the entire time I traveled, he constantly accused me of sleeping with somebody. I never once gave him a reason to think I was cheating. I recognized that this was just his way of dealing with his own insecurities and poor selfimage. I have not worked for a number of years, but on occasion, he stills insinuates that I had affairs. Instead of being supportive of my hard work then and now, he thinks its more important to keep suggesting that Im always looking for someone else to sleep with. How do I get him to stop? Not a Cheater Dear Not: Your husband sounds overly suspicious. We dont mean to add to the problem, but sometimes those who are having affairs accuse the spouse of the same offense. Tell your husband that his continuing accusations undermine your trust and make you wonder what is really going on. Counseling could help get to the bottom of it. If he is unwilling, you can choose to turn a deaf ear or get counseling on your own. However, if his accusations become more strident or more frequent, this could indicate mental health or medical issues, and he should see his doctor. Dear Annie : I recently made a new friend at work. We have known each other for three months, and we get along great. However, imagine my surprise last week when she told me she used my first name on an online dating site. At first I just thought it was a little weird, but now I feel really uncomfortable about it and dont know what to do. How can I get her to change her online profile without ruining our work relationship? Miffed Dear Miffed : This was presumptuous but not disastrous. If she used only your first name and the rest of her information is her own, its annoying but not compromising. However, the fact that she would do this without consulting you indicates that she could easily take other liberties down the road, so you are smart to nip this in the bud. Be nice but honest. Say, Dottie, remember when you said you used my first name on your dating profile? It really made me uncomfortable. And prospective dates dont like that sort of thing, either. Please change it immediately. If she is the type who would end a friendship over this, consider it a bullet dodged. Dear Annie: Hats off to you for printing the letter about World Suicide Prevention Day and bringing awareness to one of the most difficult events that happens in life. Only when you walk in these shoes do you understand what a person is going through when they become a survivor of a suicide. I lost my nephew to suicide in 2008. As difficult as it was, I sought the support of our local Survivors of Suicide support group. They understood exactly what our family was going through. Through their love, support and compassion, I was able to hold myself together. It has now been four years, and my life has gone on, but not without difficult days and sadness. Without the support group, it would have been much more difficult. I continue with the support group so that the incoming folks can see that life goes beyond their present grief. Please, if you find yourself in this situation, seek out S.O.S. through a national hotline, your local family services or on the Internet, for they understand your pain, and they give you hope when such darkness shadows your life.

And after just two months on the job, Hale walked away. Hale abruptly resigned Monday from the Citrus County School Board, saying she wanted to spend more time with ailing family members, including her mother and husband. This is where my focus needs to be, she said in an interview. Hale, who defeated Bill Murray in the August primary, attended just three board meetings and participated very little in the discussions. She said the problem wasnt learning the complexities of the school district, state funding or property tax issues involving Progress Energy Florida. Rather, she said, health issues involving her family escalated since taking office in midNovember. A lot can happen quickly, she said.

In fact, it has been on an upswing since Nov. 7, when President Obama was re-elected. And the sales of guns and ammunition got another boost by the fear of possible government restrictions in response to the school shootings in Newtown, Conn. Patriotic Sporting Goods in Citrus Hills is about to mark its first anniversary. Leaning heavily to the firearm and shooters supply side of the business, the store is a nonprofit that employs and assists disabled veterans. And owner Jamey Clovis, an expert on firearms, is just as willing to extol the virtues of life in Citrus County as he is to share knowledge of guns and ammunition. He has built a following of loyal local customers and attracts out-of-area shoppers looking for hard-to-find firearms. The volume that we MATTHEW BECK/ChroniclePatriot Sporting Goods owner Jamey Clovis displays a .22 Long Rifle GSG AK-47 in his store in Citrus Springs. The 25-round magazine can be replaced with a five-round clip, making it legal for hunting in many states, according to Clovis. He said he believes the weapon will be targeted for a ban by lawmakers because of its resemblance to the AK-47 assault rifle and its large capacity magazine. Jamey Clovis unpacks a box of large-capacity magazines in his Patriot Sporting Goods store. Recently, he said, the price for the magazines that hold extra rounds of ammunition has doubled and they now retail for about $40. Rising prices hitting county shooters in pocketbook See GUNS/ Page A5 Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama endorsed controversial bans on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines on Monday, as well as stricter background checks for gun buyers but conceded he may not win approval of all in a Congress reluctant to tighten restrictions. Will all of them get through this Congress? I dont know, said Obama. He said lawmakers would have to examine their own conscience as they tackle gun control legislation after the horrifying Connecticut school shootings but in the face of opposition from the National Rifle Association and other pro-gun rights groups. Obama spoke at a midday White House news conference one month after the Newtown elementary school rampage, which ignited a national discussion on preventing mass shootings. The president said he would unveil a comprehensive roadmap for curbing gun violence within days. His plan will be based on recommendations from Vice President Joe Bidens gun task force and is expected to include both legislative proposals and steps Obama can implement by himself using his presidential powers. But the most sweeping and contentious elements including an assault weapons ban Obama backs gun control proposalsPresident acknowledges he faces tough fight in CongressSee OBAMA/ Page A5 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerAn AMBER Alert is designed to get the publics attention and thats exactly what happened early Monday morning. Many Citrus County residents were jolted awake around 1:40 a.m. by what sounded like an Armageddon warning from their cellphones. An AMBER Alert has been issued in your area, please check local media, a text message read. No location, no website, no phone number. As it turned out, the AMBER Alert came from Immokalee, about 200 miles south of Inverness, involving the disappearance of a 2-year-old girl. The child was found, unharmed, a few hours later in a nearby wooded area. The alert was the first in a new program beginning in 2013 that sends automatic emergency AMBER Alerts to millions of cell company customers who have smartphones. Prior to this year, cell customers had to sign up for the Wireless AMBER Alert program. The wireless industry then joined the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Emergency Management Agency to create the Wireless Emergency Alerts program. Now all AMBER Alerts plus alerts issued by the president or alerts of imminent threats, such as tornadoes or attacks are automatically sent to wireless customers with smartphones in areas targeted by the alert. Florida Department of Law Enforcement Special Agent Carol Frederick said Mondays alert shows kinks exist in the process. Frederick, who said coworkers in Tallahassee also received the same alert, said FDLE issues email AMBER Alerts to anyone who signs up to receive them. Our hotline was very active with people asking what the alert was, Frederick said. They thought it was issued by FDLE. We only issue email alerts. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children receives AMBER Alert notifications from local law enforcement and state or federal agents on the scene of a childs disappearance. Authorities in Immokalee sought a statewide alert because the girl disappeared in the middle of the night See ALERT/ Page A5 New AMBER Alert a wakeup call

Improvements hit bump in road NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Motorists who travel on Forest Drive in Inverness know it seems to attract drivers who like to speed, which makes it dangerous to the hundreds of city residents who live in the housing areas along that street, said Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni at a recent city council meeting. Weve discussed this for years, he told council members. Traffic-calming and aesthetic improvements have been planned and the city has already secured a Florida Department of Transportation grant of $35,000 for the design portion of the project. As for funding for the actual construction, theyve hit a small bump in the road. The (FDOT) construction rules have changed and the actual construction may or may not qualify with the new rules, DiGiovanni said. If we utilize the $35,000 for the design, DOT mandates that you will construct within 10 years. Knowing how important the improvements are this is not a project we want to walk away from. The council voted to accept the $35,000 grant, with the understanding that the project would be scaled down, consolidating trafficcalming elements at specific, strategic locations and reducing construction costs. If DOT construction (funding) never materializes, by shrinking the scope of the project the city can budget funds over the next eight to 10 years in our CIP (City Improvement Plan), DiGiovanni said. Road improvement projects involving Highland Boulevard and Zephyr Street are on the agenda for tonights city council meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Inverness Government Building, 212 W. Main St., Inverness. The public is welcome to attend. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927. PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe Agricultural Alliance wants to get people talking about the fate of the Citrus County Canning Center. The center is deeply rooted in the countys past, but has been on shaky ground since county budget cuts in 2009. Located in a former school house in Lecanto, it is operated by Citrus County Parks and Recreation. Concerned about the facilitys future in the current budget climate, the Alliance took up the issue at its Monday meeting. The Agricultural Alliance does not speak for the canning center, member Dale McClellan said. If there is a need, the agriculture community would like get a conversation started. The center has very nice equipment located in an old historic building. We want to help the canning center, but we are not in charge. I see the canning center as an asset, said Dr. Philip Geist, area director, Small Business Development Center. We need to see if there is an interest and feasibility in using it as an asset to create jobs and help farmers move products. Diane Toto, of We Care Food Pantry, outlined a plan for the facility that would convert the canning center to utilizing metal cans. The plan is a compete concept that would eliminate wasted crops, combat hunger and encourage home gardens. We can change lives and have a real impact on self-sufficiency, she said. We have to encourage the county not to sell it until we can jump on it. We need to find out from the county what they plan to do with it, said member Dixie Hollins, or if there are other organizations in the county that dont want it to go. Discussion led to formation of a task force of members interested in exploring the issue. Subsequently, the alliance approved a donation of $300 to make a video to put online to raise public awareness by showing what the canning center is and some of its history. In other business, State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness, explained his recently filed state lands bill, which would allow small ranchers and farmers to use adjacent state lands to expand. This is what a small community needs, he said and asked for input from the agriculture community. The alliance will have a booth at the Manatee Festival and at the AGRItunity 2013 Conference and Trade Show on Jan. 26 in Bushnell.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com. Alliance hopes to raise canning center awareness ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHOMOSASSA Sitting on the top step in front of his shop, Greg Downing Jr. is young, full of life and continuously has his black Labrador Jasmine by his side. He is 17 years old and completing his senior year in a home-school program. Waking up early in the morning, Downing Jr. completes his studies and then goes to work. However, employment is different for him. He is his own employer. Owner of Outcast Tackle Shop, 10330 W. Yulee Dr., Homosassa, Downing Jr. recognizes the hard work required to be an entrepreneur and business owner. Balancing school and the business has been my hardest task, Downing said. However, I have learned how to run a business, business plans, finances and so much more. This is the best college education he could get hands-on and real business, said his father, Greg Downing Sr. How much does it cost to turn the key to open up the door? How much do you have to sell everyday to make a living and survive? Those are concepts he is learning how to do. Since Downing Jr. was 11 years old, his father taught his son how to invest in real estate. We own several corporations together where one corporation owns eight different properties, Downing Sr. said. At 16 he started a commercial fishing business where he got a products fishing license to buy and sell fish. Instead of just fishing for fun, he made a profit. Downing Jr. used the earnings from his commercial fishing business and the knowledge he learned from his father to open the tackle shop on his own. Local guides provide him with information on the current water conditions, tackle and products to buy. There is a lot of current knowledge when you come in here, Downing Jr. said. Fishing is what I love to do. I am working with local guides for my clients. You ask a question and it gets answered. I just went to a show in Raleigh, N.C., and bought a lot of affordable tackle like Star Rods, Greg said. I want to appeal to a casual angler all the way up to professionals. Currently, he does not carry live bait; however, Downing Jr. said he plans to offer it by the summer. The shop opens at 9 a.m., however he promised that will change in the summer, as fishing picks up. Peoples responses and traffic is great, but it is a slow time of year for the fishing industry, Downing Jr. said. People know we are going to be here every day. Doors are open now with a grand opening set for March 2. Inverness council accepts design grant, but scales back street construction project His own boss MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleSeventeen-year-old Greg Downing sits in front of his Outcast Tackle Shop in Homosassa and discusses his thoughts on owning a business at such a young age. In addition to owning the shop, Downing hopes to work as a full-time fishing guide in the future.

Bond $7,500. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThe Florida Highway Patrol made its presence felt during the just-ended holiday season by issuing more than 39,000 traffic citations and making 548 drivingunder-the-influence arrests across the state. Citrus County accounted for 193 of the 39,202 citations issued and five of the DUI arrests. Twenty safety belt violations and 86 speeding tickets also were handed out in Citrus, according to FHP data. Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol, announced late last week his agencys preliminary enforcement results in the nationwide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Overcampaign from Dec. 12 to Jan. 2. He said FHP beefed up its force by having troopers postpone administrative duties in favor of road patrols and adding reservists and auxiliary troopers to patrol duty. Our troopers were out on the roadways to help Florida residents and visitors have a safe and enjoyable holiday period, Brierton said. Every year the members of the patrol do their part to identify unsafe drivers and remove them from the roadways, as well as taking the appropriate steps to deter unsafe driving behaviors. According to the FHP more than 2,500 motorists were cited for failure to buckle up during the campaign. Nearly 11,000 motorists received assistance from the agency, while there were 10,876 crashes statewide. Law enforcement agencies across the state reported 58 fatalities during that period. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA 66-year-old man arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious conduct involving a 6-yearold boy last July has been re-arrested and now charged with rape in the same case, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Gerald Stefan Edwards, East Wacker Street, Hernando, is facing charges of sexual battery of a child younger than age 12. No bond was allowed. Edwards was nabbed this past Friday after more evidence surfaced related to his alleged conduct before his arrest for lewd sexual behavior with a child. According to the CCSO report in July, a witness opened the closed door of a bedroom and found Edwards standing in front of the child, who was on a bed. Edwards was trying to pull up his pants, the report said. Subsequent interviews with the child, who is now 7, indicate Edwards sexually violated the boy during that incident, according to the report. In July, Edwards had an explanation for why a witness reportedly found him in a room with a boy, with the door closed and his pants down to his knees: his pants were too big and would often fall off him whenever he stands, the report stated. Edwards, who is currently in custody at the Citrus County Detention Center, did not give a statement this time since he has an attorney.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL HI LO PR NA NA NA HI LO PR 83 58 0.00 HI LO PR 82 60 0.00 HI LO PR 80 58 0.00 HI LO PR 84 61 0.00 HI LO PR 78 58 0.00 YESTERDAYS WEATHER Partly to mostly sunny.THREE DAY OUTLOOK Partly cloudy.

do here is absolutely unbelievable, Clovis said. Nov. 7 was when it started. The customers have been a mix of longtime shooters and firsttime buyers. To accommodate the latter, he also offers and recommends eight-hour gun courses from entry level to expert. His best-selling gun has been the Ruger 10/22 Takedown, a target shooter favorite that can be taken apart for easy transport. While semi-automatic assault type rifles have dominated the news, theyre not for most of his Citrus County customers. But they have been hit by rapidly rising ammunition prices based largely on the fear of future restrictions. Theyre not putting a gun in every window of their house, theyre going target shooting, he said. Its a hobby, its definitely recreational shooting, he said. People are upset because a part of their life theyve built into retirement going out and target shooting is pretty much being taken away from them as prices double and triple. He gets a lot of first-time buyers where a retired guy buys a gun for some target shooting and is back in the store shortly thereafter because his wife wants her own gun. Another aspect of serving a senior clientele is matching the firearm to a shooters physical capabilities such as a person lacking hand strength due to arthritis. He said this is a growing part of his business. Clovis also takes pride in locating what customers want, which has brought in many buyers as demand and the threat of being outlawed has made some of the more exotic semiautomatic firearms and accessories very hard to find and very expensive. In general my costs have doubled, he said. Seventeen major gun manufactures in this country raised their prices as of Jan. 1. Prices have increased between 5 and 40 percent, and this is only January. As a result, people are stocking up so they will be able to continue their shooting hobby. He said first-time gun buyers can expect a lot of questions and a lot of advice whether they a want a gun for selfdefense, a gun to carry, one for target shooting or just think theyd better get one now. As for cost, they can expect to spend $350 to $550 for a handgun for personal protection. We want them to get the right gun, he said. It may not that Glock they heard about, but something more suitable. The store also attracts collectors, and Clovis has some unique historic pieces traded in by local residents. People are buying up ammunition real quick, there are some shortages, said Jud Garvin, owner of Garvins Guns in Homosassa. Prices are going way up for guns and ammo, were dealing with supply and demand. Obama is the best gun salesman America ever had, he said. He has found a similar trend with customer shooting habits. Theyre not for hunting or self-defense, people are plinking, he said. Just plinking (shooting for fun). Garvin thinks the smart money would be to just ride out the trend, but instead people are paying the high prices. He thinks we are likely to see some ban on certain imported firearms and high-capacity magazines. You dont need a 30-round clip to hunt, he said. But they are more convenient for people on the range. As a longtime gun dealer, Garvin is adamant about not losing any Second Amendment rights. Theyve got a right to do something to protect children in the classrooms, he said, but you are not going to stop crazy people. Marc Solgan has a different take on the gun business. He owns American Trading Post Pawn in Crystal River. Being primarily a pawn shop, which handles guns, he said his business has not been affected as much and gun sales have always been steady.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JANUARY15, 2013 A5 000DH1R CARPET TILE WOOD VINYL LAMINATE SERVING CITRUS COUNTY SINCE 1975 527-1811 FREE ESTIMATES 44 W.

Asked if her own health contributed to the decision to resign, Hale said, a little bit, but declined to elaborate. Hale gave a brief resignation letter to board Chairwoman Ginger Bryant that offered no explanation for her decision. This letter is to serve as my official resignation from my current position of Citrus County District IV School Board Member, Citrus County, Florida. This resignation is to take effect immediately, the letter reads. Thank you for your cooperation and kind consideration of this matter. Her resignation left board members shocked. Im bewildered. I dont know what happened, Bryant said. Ive never seen that happen before. Board members Pat Deutschman and Thomas Kennedy said it seemed Hale was having trouble fitting in. She seemed to be very uncomfortable in the role, very unprepared, Deutschman said. I think people underestimate the difficulty and responsibility of being a school board member. Kennedy said Hale didnt show enthusiasm on the board. Im not sure she really knew why she wanted the job, and sometimes that seemed apparent, he said. I dont know what motivated her to be a board member. Hale said the issue was family health and nothing more. My hearts still there, no doubt about it, she said. Hale praised board members and the administration. Its been a great two months, she said. I have nothing but positives. Hales resignation leaves the school board with four members until Gov. Rick Scott appoints a replacement. Murray declined to comment on Hales resignation and said he hadnt thought about whether he would seek appointment to fill the vacancy.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. will require approval from a Congress that has been loath to tackle gun control legislation for more than a decade. The politically powerful NRA has vowed to fight any measure that would limit access to guns and ammunition, a hardline position that could sway some Republicans and conservative Democrats. Despite the opposition, Obama said he would vigorously pursue measures to tighten gun laws. My starting point is not to worry about the politics, he said. The presidents new resolve follows a lack of movement in tackling gun violence throughout much of his first term, despite several high-profile shootings. He called the Dec. 14 massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School the worst day of his presidency and vowed to take action. Parents of the slain Connecticut children added their voices to the national dialogue Monday. Members of the newly formed group Sandy Hook Promise called for an open-minded discussion about a range of issues, including guns, mental health and safety in schools and other public places. And lawmakers in New York state pressed ahead with what would be the nations first gun control measure approved since the school shootings. Among the items in a tentative agreement in the state Legislature are further restrictions on the states ban on assault weapons, limits on the size of magazines to seven bullets, down from the current 10, and more stringent background checks for sales. and there were no witnesses. The center then sent the AMBER Alert to its secondary carriers companies that can quickly disseminate the information to their customers, said Bob Hoever, director of special programs. Hoever, whose office is in Washington, D.C., said AMBER Alerts have the ability to quickly mobilize citizens into helping to find missing or abducted children. The text message is limited to 90 characters and the FCC will not allow a link to the AMBER Alert website as part of the message, Hoever said. Still, he acknowledged that Mondays message could leave residents of Citrus County convinced that the alert was for their own community. I feel really bad for anybody it did wake up, he said. Were going to have to really take a look at the program. Though cell customers can opt out of the AMBER Alert program, Hoever hopes they do not. We dont want to anger the public, he said. We want to embrace the public to help find these children. GUNSContinued from Page A1 HALEContinued from Page A1 ALERTContinued from Page A1 OBAMAContinued from Page A1

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Long voting lines in November that again put Florida under national scrutiny could be eased in future elections if lawmakers restore the early voting days they cut and stop putting so many long constitutional amendment proposals on the ballot, a Senate committee heard Monday. A panel of nine election supervisors representing counties around the state told the committee that they should have the flexibility to hold at least eight and up to 14 days of early voting, and to be allowed more flexibility in choosing early voting sites. They also said the 11 long questions the Republican-dominated Legislature jammed onto the ballot increased voting time and required more time to scan the multipaged ballots. A shorter ballot reduces voting times and election costs. We must not just look at the number of words, but the number of amendments, said Duval County elections supervisor Jerry Holland. The Legislature loaded up the ballot with antiabortion, pro-church, tax cut and anti-Obamacare questions designed to bring out conservative voters. And they took advantage of an exemption that allows the questions to exceed the 75-word limit imposed on citizens groups that petition to have questions placed on the ballot. Counties that had never previously had multi-page ballots used them in the last election, while the ballot in Miami-Dade county was 12 pages long. Joseph Body, 82HERNANDOJoseph Michael Body, 82, Hernando, died Jan. 11, 2013, in Citrus Memorial hospital. Mr. Body was born in Manville, N.J., Oct. 31, 1930, to the late Daniel and Helen Body. He moved to Citrus County in 1988, from East Meadow, N.Y., where he retired after 35 years from Pan American Airways as an aircraft maintenance supervisor. Mr. Body served in the USAF and is a veteran of the Korean Conflict. His love and growing knowledge of aviation ignited his long career with Pan Am, where his influence expanded to key management roles before his retirement. A skilled swimmer and a man with a passion for self-learning in many areas, Mr. Body lived a full, active life in his new community. Since his earliest years, he was dedicated to learning new skills and engaging them. He was an accomplished woodcraftsman and the consumate fix-it man. He built a woodworking shop for himself and spent countless hours in it doing what he loved creating. He was also a self-taught financial planner, building a deep understanding of economics over the years. Staying busy and involved were important values to Mr. Body. He worked at Whispering Pines Park as a park aide and also worked as a pool maintenance specialist. He and his wife traveled extensively, including a trip around the world. The birth of his granddaughter Tasha, in 1987, brought great joy to his life and he is remembered fondly for his care and dedication to her. Left to mourn his passing is his wife of 60 years, Anne (Osyczka) Body, Hernando; two daughters, Joanne Osenenko and husband Derek, of Woodstock, N.Y., Susan Madden and husband Kevin, of East Meadow, N.Y.; his brother, William, of St. Louis, Mo.; and one grandchild, Tasha.

Toyota retakes global auto sales crown from GM Associated PressDETROIT Toyota has once again dethroned General Motors as the worlds top-selling automaker. The Japanese company sold 9.7 million cars and trucks worldwide in 2012, although its still counting. GM sold 9.29 million. Both companies saw higher sales, but Toyotas growth was far larger as it rolled out new versions of popular models like the Camry. GM executives promised sales growth this year, especially in the U.S. Both companies say publicly that they dont care about who wins, but concede that the crown is an important morale booster for employees. GM was the top-selling carmaker for more than seven decades before losing the title to Toyota in 2008. But GM retook the sales crown in 2011 when Toyotas factories were slowed by an earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The disaster left Toyota dealers with few cars to sell. The company has since recovered. Toyotas comeback from the earthquake, and flooding in Thailand, is only part of the story, said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting for LMC Automotive, a Detroit-area industry forecasting firm. The company also has freshened up its stale midsize sedan, the Camry, the top-selling car in the United States. GMs global sales rose 2.9 percent last year, it announced Monday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Toyota sales rose 22 percent. Schuster expects Toyota to keep the lead over GM this year as it launches a new Corolla. I think thats going to be enough to keep them in their position, he said. Toyota builds 70 percent of the cars it sells in the U.S. in North America, including the Corolla. GM is also contending with a stronger Volkswagen. It narrowly edged out the fast-growing German company for second place in 2012. VW sold a record 9.1 million vehicles. Volkswagen, with big sellers like the Passat midsize sedan and Jetta compact, closed in on GM with an 11 percent sales increase across the globe. The United States, where VW Group sales rose 34 percent, led the way. Schuster expects GM to hold off Volkswagen in 2013. Thats because VW has more of a presence in Europe, where sales are falling as the region struggles with high unemployment and weak economies. Associated PressToyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda shows a remodeled Crown sedan last month in Tokyo. Toyota sold a record 9.7 million vehicles last year, bouncing back by 22 percent from a disaster-struck 2011. It has set an even higher target of 9.91 million vehicles for 2013. The numbers underline Toyotas solid turnaround from supply disruptions caused by the earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan in 2011 that had hurt global production and sales. Company offers coupons in cars Associated PressST. PETERSBURG The company that sends you blue envelopes stuffed with coupons also wants you to save money while youre driving. Valpak has partnered with Roximity, a Denverbased app developer, to bring coupons and deals to drivers of newer-model Fords and Lincolns who use the voice-controlled Sync AppLink connected to their mobile phone. The app allows people to hear about personalized deals from stores, restaurants and other businesses as they drive. The coupon appears on the drivers smartphone and can be redeemed once the car is stopped. Valpak, which is based in St. Petersburg, is trying to branch out from the traditional print offers and capture the digital coupon market. There are plenty of apps that use GPSbased location services to determine a phone users location and nearby deals but Roximitys app taps into the vast number of deals from Valpak. This partnership took us to the next level, said Nancy Cook, the vice president of digital business development at Valpak. Were delivering offers anywhere, any time. About one million Fords and Lincolns are set up for the new app and technology, Cook said. Heres how it works: People who drive selected vehicles with the Sync AppLink can download the Roximity app on their phone. Once in the car, they plug the phone into the USB port and launch the Roximity app. As they are driving, they can push the hands-free sync button on their steering wheel and instruct the Sync program to access Roximity. Then the driver can search for deals. On a recent day not long after the partnership was announced, Gigi Swanson, the digital alliances and partnerships strategist at Valpak, demonstrated the device on a new Ford Focus. Find nearby deals, she said to her dashboard. Roximity found 10 deals nearby, the computerized womans voice replied. One of the deals was for a large pizza at a nearby restaurant. Swanson showed how to call the restaurant or read details of the offer, all without touching the phone. Had Swanson wanted to buy that pizza, she would have showed the cashier the coupon once inside the restaurant; the virtual coupon was on the Roximity app on Swansons phone. In the coming months as the app and technology mature, Swanson said, the app and Sync devices will remember a drivers preference-based behavior and send alerts based on prior redemptions similar to Amazons or iTunes recommendations. Valpak already targets homeowners who receive their coupons based on ZIP code; the coupons are sent out in batches of 10,000 in the U.S. and Canada and are based on geographical locations, income levels and postal carrier routes. All of the mailed offers are printed in St. Petersburg; some 40 million coupons are printed and sent each month. Many of those offers will be featured on the Roximity app. Fla. officials want shorter ballot, more early voting

The electronics and appliance retailer posted disappointing forecasts for its fiscal third quarter and for the full year. A Wedbush analyst said that a check at the luxury bag makers stores found strong sell-throughs of some of its bags and clutches. Weaker sales at the clothing companys Juicy Couture brand hurt its fourth-quarter performance, but its 2012 revenue beat expectations. Bankrupt snack maker Hostess Brands said that it selected bids by the rival bakery to buy six of its bread brands for $390 million. Swatch Group, the Swiss watch maker, said that it will pay about $1 billion to acquire the Canadian watch and jewelry brand. Stock indexes were mixed on Monday, as drops in telecommunications and technology stocks offset gains by companies that sell consumer goods. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell to a modest loss for the second consecutive day. 13 14 15 $16 OJ ND Harry WinstonHWD Close: $15.08 0.62 or 4.3% $10.32 $16.14 Vol.: Mkt.

The Dow Jones industrial average edged higher. The Dow rose 18.89 points to 13,507.32 Monday, having fallen as much as 29 points at the start of the day. The S&P 500 fell 1.37 point to 1,470.68. The Nasdaq composite index fell 8.13 points to 3,117.50 The S&P 500 closed at a five-year high of 1,472 on Thursday, following a solid start to the fourthquarter earnings reporting period and amid optimism that the outlook for global growth is brightening. Apples stock, which isnt included in the Dow but accounts for 10.3 percent of the Nasdaq index and 3.7 percent of the S&P, slid $18.55 to $501.75 after TheWall Street Journal reported the company has reduced its orders for iPhone 5 components due to weak demand. Apple slipped below $500 a share for the first time in nearly a year, in early trading. The stock has slumped 28 percent since closing at a record $702.10 in September. Computer maker Dell surged $1.41, or 13 percent, to $12.29 following a report its in talks with buyout firms. The company is considering going private with at least two firms, Bloomberg news reported, citing unidentified sources. Earnings reporting will pick up this week with many big U.S. banks, including JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Bank of America releasing results. The market is definitely in wait and see mode, said Brian Gendreau, a market strategist at Cetera Financial Group. Investors will be scrutinizing revenues to assess whether the drawn-out debate over the fiscal cliff had an impact on consumer spending. A series of tax hikes and spending cuts due to come into effect Jan. 1 were only averted by a last-minute deal. Earnings growth has likely peaked for now because companies have been relying on cost cutting, rather than growth, to boost profitability, says Ron Sloan, a senior portfolio manager at Invesco. Analysts currently forecast that fourth-quarter 2012 earnings for S&P 500 companies will increase 3.3 percent, according to S&P Capital IQ. That compares with 8.4 percent from the same period a year earlier.

The Treasury Department auctioned $28 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.075 percent, up from 0.065 percent last week. Another $32 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.105 percent, the same as last week. The three-month rate was the highest since those bills averaged 0.085 percent on Dec. 26. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the threemonth price was $9,994.69, while a sixmonth bill sold for $9,998.10. Dells stock soars on report of possible buyoutROUND ROCK, Texas Dells stock soared 13 percent Monday on a report that the struggling personal computer maker is in talks to take the company private. Citing unidentified people familiar with the situation, Bloomberg News said Dell has discussed a potential sale with at least two firms that specialize in buying companies that have fallen out of favor with investors. The report didnt name the interested firms. Dell Inc., based in Round Rock, Texas, declined to comment.Swatch in $1 billion deal for Harry Winston brandGENEVA Switzerlands biggest watch maker, Swatch Group AG, will pay about $1 billion to buy Canadas Harry Winston watch and jewelry brand, officials from both companies said Monday. The Biel, Switzerland-based company agreed to pay $750 million to acquire the brand from Toronto-based Harry Winston Diamond Corp. and will also assume as much as $250 million in debt, a joint statement said. The acquisition includes the Harry Winston production company in Geneva and more than 500 employees globally.E-book reading on the rise among young peopleNEW YORK E-books may finally be catching on with the toughest of customers: young people. A report commissioned by childrens publisher Scholastic Inc. finds that 46 percent of respondents aged 9-17 had read an e-book as of last year, compared to just 25 percent in 2010. And around half of those who have not read an e-book say they want to do so. But the appeal of paper remains. Around 80 percent of kids who read an e-book still read print books, according to Mondays report. While e-books are believed to comprise around 25 to 30 percent of total book sales, the number has been much lower among children. The rise of iPads and other tablets has helped vastly expand the availability of picture books and other childrens books in electronic format.UPS abandons $6.9 billion deal for TNT ExpressUPS scrapped plans to grow in Europe through the acquisition of Dutch delivery company TNT Express because European regulators were getting ready to reject the $6.9 billion deal. It would have been the largest acquisition in UPS history. UPS offered in March to buy TNT, Europes second-largest delivery company, to better compete with Europes largest, Deutsche Posts DHL. Regulators objected, saying the deal would reduce competition in the market for express delivery of small packages. UPS said Monday that it had proposed tangible remedies, but after meeting with regulators on Friday, the Atlanta company told TNT it saw no prospect of the deal being approved.Investors exit stock funds for sixth year in a rowBOSTON Investors pulled money from stock mutual funds in 2012 for the sixth year in a row, despite the stock markets strong performance. Bond funds attracted the most cash since 2009, another illustration of how conservative investors have become with their money since the financial crisis. A net $90 billion was withdrawn from U.S. stock mutual funds last year, industry consultant Strategic Insight said on Monday. The total included $26 billion pulled out in December, the tenth month in a row that withdrawals have exceeded deposits.JPMorgan told to fix oversight tied to $6B lossWASHINGTON JPMorgan Chase & Co. has been ordered to take steps to correct poor risk management that led to a surprise trading loss last year of more than $6 billion. Federal regulators also on Monday cited the bank for lapses in oversight that allowed the bank to be used for money laundering. JPMorgan, the nations largest bank by assets, will not pay a fine under the agreements with the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Comptroller of the Currency, a Treasury Department agency. The bank promised to strengthen its policies and procedures to control risk and to screen customers to prevent money laundering. From wire reports Business HIGHLIGHTS

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2013 Gun debate no debateThe debate about gun control (a misnomer) really is about confiscation and suppression. When Mary B. Gregory alleges that no one would dare oppose the Second Amendment rights but suggests one approach is to disarm the people by prohibiting ammunition, she plays a cat and mouse game. There are some sensible suggestion on both sides of the debate, but name-calling is not one of them. The NRA is being verbally attacked and blamed by some who know little about the organization. Since 1871, a major objective of the NRA has been the training of people of good repute in the safe handling and proper use of firearms. Over 90,000 training instructors teach gun safety. Those so critical of the NRA should read its training materials before making unfounded judgements. The tens of thousands of people who have successfully completed safety courses and the many programs for youth, adults and law enforcement personnel are a matter of record. E.G. Yerians letter calling the NRA greedy, sick, and having blood on its hands seems to me to fall in the category of hate mail. I dont see any facts backing up her allegations. Her letter is irresponsible and pap.Gordon B. Boucher InvernessDo your researchThere is an old saying: it is often better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. I believe this holds true for some of the people who send letters to the editor. Maybe you should just call in and you wont have to give your name. By the way, the preceding statement was just an opinion, as I dont have any factual data to back it up. Facts are established truths, backed up by empirical data, and not just something youve made up in your own mind. Due to advances in technology, all the information in the world is now available at your fingertips either on the Internet or at your public library. The library even has computers and will show you how to use them if you dont already know. When you quote fantasies or hearsay, you are proving yourself to be both uneducated and uninformed and also not a worthy participant in any conversation or discussion. If you think you can persuade or intimidate people into accepting your point of view by making outrageous statements, then I think you are fooling at least one person. Besides that, if you can persuade or intimidate people with nonfactual data, are they really the type of people that you choose to associate with? Maybe some of you just need to edit your own letters before you let them fly. The last time I checked, there were 60 seconds in a minute. At a rate of fire of four per second, that would equal 240 rpm, and not 100 rpm as suggested by one writer. If you really want to know the difference between a semi-auto and an automatic weapon, look it up. If you want to know how many rounds per minute an AR-15 will fire, look it up. Kudos to those of you who do your research before sending in letters. I would be glad to discuss any topic with you even if Im not familiar with that topic. I can always look it up on my cell phone.Captain W. J. (Jack) Fowler Homosassa The periodical Education Week recently published its annual Quality Counts State Report Card. Florida received a Band ranked sixth nationally, so immediately the usual suspects engaged in the typical self-adulation. The Republican Party of Florida and Gov. Scott rushed to tweet out their congratulations to each other for these successes. I dont relish being the guy constantly throwing cold water on the party, but a closer read of the Education Week report reflects what most parents of schools kids already know. All is definitely not well in Floridas schools. The report grades the 50 states on a variety of education components, and where Florida did well is not nearly as important as where we tanked. Florida received top grades for its accountability and assessments. In other words, we got an A for the amount and quality of testing we conduct in our schools. This should come as no surprise to Florida teachers, who feel forced to spend more time giving tests than actually teaching coursework. But testing is not teaching, and, in fact, in the category of achievement Florida was clearly subpar. We earned a Cfrom Education Week because, according to its report, too many kids are not proficient in math or reading. Plus, our states graduation rate was ranked 44th in the nation. The report didnt event take into account that graduating seniors ACT and SAT scores were among the worst in the country or that 50 percent of those who graduate need remedial work if they get to college. Of course you get what you pay for, and, indeed, our poor achievement score was very close to the D+ we received in the education funding category. According to Education Week, Florida ranks near the bottom in every relevant education spending metric. So before they uncork champagne bottles, Floridians should know that the failure of Gov. Scott and the legislature to support public schools adequately has created a palpable achievement deficit in our state. Getting straight As for having lots of tests is not the same as getting As on the tests. Weighing a malnourished dog every day doesnt make him any better. We shouldnt be celebrating how sophisticated our testing regimen is when we perform so poorly, and too many young people dont graduate or graduate lacking skills to reach their full potential in the job market. Dont misunderstand. I believe there have been achievement gains in the few subjects tested and strongly believe accountability instruments are important. We do need to know what is working and how institutions are performing as well as how well students are learning. But Floridas problem is that we have a system that measures competence in only a few subjects. So rather than accounting for all the things that matter in schools, we make all that matters only the things we account for. And compounding the problem is a funding shortfall. Florida schools, with such limited budgets, cant afford to emphasize anything but what is tested and what is part of the school grading system. The result is a terrible kind of triage in public education, where electives, higher-level coursework, extra-curricular activities are all neglected or, worse, eliminated because they dont improve a schools grades. A strong accountability system needs to broaden, not narrow the curriculum. That cannot happen if you only have accountability without adequate school funding. Until Tallahassee understands the need to raise the bar as well as the financial investment, Florida will continue to celebrate mediocrity at the expense of true achievement. Thats because testing is not teaching.Dan Gelber was a state senator and former House Democratic leader from Miami. He can be contacted at dan@dangelber.com.

During the 10 a.m. meeting at the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) headquarters in Brooksville, water officials will likely politely listen to opponents of the recently established minimum flows and levels (MFLs). Theyll correctly be able to point to action to cut the MFL for the Chassahowitzka from the staff-recommended 9 percent to 3 percent, which is the same as the Homosassas MFL. If, loosely, history proves correct, the citizens will criticize the science behind MFLs and question why any level of degradation could be allowed, and water officials will stress that their job, as related to MFLs, relates exclusively to water flow, not other degradation issues such as septic tanks, fertilizers and saltwater intrusion. While the MFLs for the two rivers are now law, the citizen activists are applauded for pushing the issue. River flow is inextricably linked to water quality and until state officials connect those dots, Floridians should seriously worry about the health of our riverine environments. Citrus Countians, specifically, should be vocal about the state-mandated MFL policy that smacks in the face of the Outstanding Florida Water (OFW) law. Included on the OFL list are both the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka rivers, as well as the Withlacoochee and Crystal rivers, which have yet to have MFLs set. While SWFWMD has acknowledged river degradation evidenced by such things has habitat loss and signs of saltwater intrusion it seeks to establish a wedge of distinction between water flow and pollution factors. While working at the direction of the governor and state lawmakers, water district officials would be heralded if they said, Yes, allowing a reduction in flow without taking all polluting variables present and future into account is ludicrous. Were obligated under the OFW law to ensure that we dont allow any degradation and our expertise would best be used by allowing us to have sway on factors that can improve water quality. Theyd be heralded by lovers of Floridas environment but theyd probably want to get there resumes in order. If nothing comes from this mornings meeting, we hope the citizens can inspire acknowledgment by those with power that the multiple factors that determine a rivers health are intertwined and no singular one can be separated out. Key retired water officials have been vocal about the backward movement in water management. We need those presently in office to do the same.

I never had a passport. Sixty years ago, I went to Korea, but the Marine Corps said I didnt need a passport. I have proof of my new address from the post office. I was told that was no good. I could buy a weapon easier than transferring my drivers license. I am 77, moved to a new address for three months, 6 miles from my previous address.

Real help for vetsI recently received an email from Citrus County Veterans Coalition Chairman Richard Floyd bringing my attention to a letter to the editor that appeared in the Citrus County ChroniclesDec. 27 edition, written by Patricia Dukeman of Homosassa. The letter told an all-too-common story of delays in the release of funds by the military to its families. These delays create hardships and in this particular case, it was affecting not just the payment of household utilities, but it was also making the difference of whether the familys children would have gifts to open on Christmas morning. As I read Ms. Dukemans letter, I was appalled that she had not been advised to contact the Citrus County Veterans Coalition (CCVC), or the Citrus County Veterans Foundation for assistance. Although the CCVC is a fairly new organization (established in 2004), we are a very proactive community organization, and receive many referrals from the Veterans Administration, businesses and churches throughout Citrus County. The CCVC also has an aggressive promotion department. Besides listing our events in the Coffee News, Peddlers Post and other publications, our community relations representative, Barbara L. Corcoran, appears every month on WYKEs Every Day is a Gift show, hosted by HPH Hospices Anne Black. Mrs. Corcoran also writes a column for the Citrus County Chronicle. The column, Veterans Views, appears on the second Sunday of the month and discusses issues that affect veterans and their families. Our CCVC food bank is open to Citrus Countys qualified veterans on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is kept stocked with dry goods, canned goods and more through cash and food donations as well as money earned through our monthly yard sales. We provide a multitude of services for the more than 23,000 military veterans living in the Citrus County area. Although our membership is still small, were a very proactive group of veterans. Part of our strength is via partnering with the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 70, their Auxiliary, the Korean War Veterans Association, and several other military oriented organizations. We are a volunteer, non-paid, group of veterans whose mission is to make a difference in the lives of those veterans that are in need. Our motto is Veterans helping Veterans. Our newsletter, The Coalition Crusader, can be obtained free of charge at many Citrus County businesses. It is also available in .pdf form via our website at www.ccvcfl. org. It contains valuable information as well as resources. The situation Ms. Dukeman wrote about had a happy ending thanks to the Harley Davidson business in our area, and we are happy to hear about that. However, it never should have become so much of a challenge. We cannot help but feel a bit disappointed that, with so many who knew of us and our mission, the case still failed to find its way to us. Hopefully, with the publication of this letter, we can help even more veterans and their families by connecting them with businesses willing to donate time and/or materials, or at the very least, pointing those in need in the right direction to get the help they seek. So, step up to the plate, veterans of Citrus County, and join our group. We have some interesting and fun project positions open now. Just a few hours of your time will make a world of difference!Daniel P. Corcoran Citrus SpringsChange for PSCThe Jan. 6 edition of theCitrus County Chroniclehas a letter from Alfred Mason, PSC keeps Progress in line. I would suggest he read the editorial by Randy Schultz inThe Palm Beach Postdated Dec. 14, 2012. The PSC is in the pockets of the utilities. That is obvious to anyone willing to take the time to see through the rhetoric. The subject of the editorial is just one instance of their lack of ethics and total disregard for the average consumer. The name Public Service Commission implies they are there for us. But the name is an oxymoron. They enjoy too many perks at the expense of the consumer. The various junkets and parties for them are paid for by the utility companies. The money that is spent for these, of course, comes from the consumer. The original concept in the formation of the PSC was to oversee the utilities to make sure we were not gouged. That is a very simple and succinct way of describing their mission. When lavish parties, trips and other amenities are allowed to be given to PSC members by the very industry they are to keep an eye on, then something is wrong. Again, that is a very simple description, but it is an undisputable fact. Who oversees the PSC? Our esteemed state Legislature. The proverbial fox watching the henhouse. The same group that receives God knows how many millions of dollars in donations from the utilities. You see the conundrum here? The politicians and PSC share the gold while the consumer is getting the shaft. I wrote State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith and Sen. Charlie Dean in the hope of getting their input on the feasibility of getting this changed. It was a waste of time. Rep. Smith owes his re-election to special interests. He certainly wasnt re-elected on his abysmal job performance. Not they, nor any other politician are willing to dam up the flow of money. There is a small but growing movement under way that is going to try to change this system before the next election. I am proud and honored to be a part of it. If the consumer continues to perpetuate the same apathetic attitude toward the status quo, then things will continue to get worse. Instead of complaining and always referring to how they must fix things, get involved and become one of the they. If people continue to groan and moan but dont get involved, then at least learn the facts before you espouse their virtues. The PSC is out of control. Their arrogance and pious attitude must be reined in before they become unmanageable. Our legislature should not be their watchdog. They both have become shameful tools of special interests. If you choose not to get involved, then please dont obstruct those who are willing to try to do something constructive to put the PSC back on the track that was originally intended. We the People is the beginning of the preamble of our Constitution. It is time to take that phrase seriously and do something! When the PSC was formed, the intention was that it would be a tool for the consumer. Well, that tool has morphed into a screwdriver. And I am tired of being one of the screws.Mark Stoltz InvernessWe are brokeSomeone please tell me what is wrong with the people who run this country, whether Democrat or Republican.

We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans. America: A country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medications and mentally ill without treatment, etc. Yet I remember a few years ago 12 TV stations running telethons to raise money for the people of Haiti for earthquake aid. Ships and planes loaded with tents, clothes, bedding and medical aid! Imagine if our government gave this same type of support to our own needy back here at home. Sad isnt it?

Shoveling Associated PressBruce Thackery shovels snow Monday at his workplace in the Business Depot in Ogden, Utah. Report released on Wood deathLOS ANGELES A new report shows coroners officials amended Natalie Woods death certificate based on unanswered questions about bruises on her upper body. Los Angeles coroners officials state in an addendum to Woods autopsy report that some of the bruises may have occurred before she went into the water and drowned, but that could not be definitively determined. Authorities renewed their inquiry into Woods 1981 death in late 2011. Mondays report lays out the reasons for altering her cause of death from drowning to drowning and other undetermined factors. Wood was on a yacht off Catalina Island with husband Robert Wagner and co-star Christopher Walken before somehow ending up in the water. Sheriffs spokesman Steve Whitmore said Woods death is an open investigation, but reiterated that Wagner is not considered a suspect.Shooting suspect charged as adultFRESNO, Calif. A 16year-old student who was teased by his California high school classmates for his red hair, social awkwardness and bookish appearance will be tried as an adult for allegedly wounding a classmate with a shotgun and trying to target another. Bryan Oliver pleaded not guilty Monday in Kern County Superior Court to two counts of premeditated attempted murder and three counts of assault with a firearm in the attack Thursday at Taft Union High School that left a 16-yearold wounded. Defense attorney David Torres said in court that Oliver did not waive his right to change his plea in the future. The potential penalty for just one count of premeditated attempted murder with a firearm is 32 years to life. Students who know the teens said Oliver had been bullied.Divers assess hull of drill rig ANCHORAGE, Alaska Divers and remotely operated underwater vehicles have completed a review of the hull of a Royal Dutch Shell PLC drill barge that ran aground two weeks ago on a remote Alaska island. A spokeswoman for the joint information center on the Kulluk grounding, Amber Bassen, said information gathered by divers and the ROVs is being analyzed. The Kulluk is a circular barge 266 feet in diameter with a 160-foot derrick. The Kulluk drilled last year in the Beaufort Sea. It was being towed to Seattle on Dec. 27 when it lost its tow line. Reattached lines also broke and the vessel ran aground New Years Eve. The drill vessel was refloated Jan. 6 and towed to Kiliuda Bay, a sheltered bay on Kodiak Island.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Syrian warplanes hit the residential neighborhood of Maadamiyeh south of Damascus on Monday morning. The Observatory said at least seven more people are trapped under the rubble. The group relies on reports from activists on the ground. Mondays attack comes a day after heavy bombardments of strategic areas around the capital from which the government is trying to dislodge rebels. At least 45 people were reported killed.Robbers dig tunnel to bankBERLIN German police say robbers dug a 100foot tunnel into the safe deposit room of a Berlin bank and escaped with their haul, setting a fire as they left to cover their tracks. Berlin police spokesman Thomas Neuendorf said the tunnel led from an underground garage into the banks safe deposit room. Neuendorf told The Associated Press on Monday the tunnel was very professional and must have taken weeks or even months to complete. It was elaborately constructed and even had ceiling supports. Police were alerted to the break-in early Monday when a security guard noticed smoke coming from the deposit room. Neuendorf said police are still trying to determine what valuables were stolen from the deposit boxes.Rape hearing to be fast-trackedNEW DELHI Defense lawyers said the cases of five men charged in the fatal gang rape of a young woman on a moving New Delhi bus are expected to be shifted to a fast track court. A hearing on whether to move the cases was to be held Monday. It had been set for last week but was rescheduled when it turned out that the official list of charges was not completely legible. Five men have been charged with the Dec. 16 attack on the young woman, who died later in a Singapore hospital. They could face the death penalty if convicted. A sixth suspect, who said he is 17 years old, is likely to be tried in a juvenile court if medical tests confirm he is a minor. World BRIEFS From wire reports Obama in showdown with GOP Associated PressWASHINGTON Reiterating a threat he first issued in the summer of 2011, President Barack Obama on Monday warned Republicans that older Americans might not get their Social Security checks and veterans wont get timely benefits if Congress fails to increase the governments borrowing authority. Republicans are insisting on spending cuts in exchange for raising the current $16.4 trillion debt ceiling. Obama vowed Monday not to use the debt ceiling to negotiate deficit reduction. We are not a deadbeat nation, he declared, creating an inevitable showdown with congressional Republicans. The government could run out of cash to pay all its bills in full as early as Feb. 15, according to one authoritative estimate. That means Washington could once again plunge into political brinkmanship like it did in 2011 when Congress ultimately raised the debt ceiling, but only after Obama agreed to broad spending cuts. On Monday, Obama said Congress should act. The full faith and credit of the United States of America is not a bargaining chip, he said. Republicans in Congress have two choices here, Obama said. They can act responsibly, and pay Americas bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put America through another economic crisis. But they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the American economy. Without an agreement, every option facing his administration would be unprecedented. It would require a degree of financial creativity that could test the law, perhaps even the Constitution. It could shortchange Social Security recipients and other people, including veterans and the poor, who rely on government programs. It could force the Treasury to contemplate selling government assets, a step considered but rejected in 2011. In short, the Treasury would have to create its own form of triage, creating a priority list of its most crucial obligations, from interest payments to debtors to benefits to vulnerable Americans. Vows not to use debt ceiling to negotiate deficit reduction Barack Obamawants GOP to act responsibly. Associated PressA public transport minibus is stopped by Malian soldiers Monday at a checkpoint at the entrance to Markala in central Mali. Despite intensive aerial bombardments by French warplanes, Islamist insurgents grabbed more territory in Mali on Monday and got much closer to the capital, French and Malian authorities said. Mali rebels make gains, vow to avenge bombings Associated PressBAMAKO, Mali Despite a punishing bombardment by French warplanes, al-Qaidalinked insurgents grabbed more territory in Mali on Monday, seizing a strategic military camp that brought them far closer to the governments seat of power. Declaring France had opened the gates of hell with its assault, the rebels threatened retribution. France ... has fallen into a trap much more dangerous than Iraq, Afghanistan or Somalia, said Omar Ould Hamaha, a leader of the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa, one of the rebel groups controlling the north, speaking on radio Europe 1. French fighter jets have been pummeling the insurgents desert stronghold in the north since Friday, determined to shatter the Islamist domination of a region many fear could become a launch pad for terrorist attacks on the West and a base for coordination with al-Qaida in Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. The Islamist fighters responded with a counter-offensive Monday, overrunning the garrison town of Diabaly, about 100 miles north of Segou, the administrative capital of central Mali, said French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. The French Embassy in Bamako immediately ordered the evacuation of the roughly 60 French nationals in the Segou region, said a French citizen who insisted on anonymity out of fear for her safety. France expanded its aerial bombing campaign, launching airstrikes for the first time in central Mali to combat the new threat. But the intense assault, including raids by gunship helicopters and Mirage fighter jets, failed to halt the advance of the rebels, who were only 250 miles from the capital, Bamako, in the far south. The rebels took Diabaly after fierce fighting and resistance from the Malian army, that couldnt hold them back, said Le Drian, the French defense minister. Malis military is in disarray and has let many towns fall with barely a shot fired since the insurgency in the West African nation began almost a year ago. While the al-Qaida-linked extremists control the north, they had been blocked in the narrow central part of the landlocked nation. They appear to have now done a flanking move, opening a second front in the broad southern section of the country, knifing in from the west on government forces. Deaths surpass US combat fatalities Associated PressWASHINGTON Suicides in the U.S. military surged to a record 349 last year, far exceeding American combat deaths in Afghanistan, and some private experts are predicting the dark trend will grow worse this year. The Pentagon has struggled to deal with the suicides, which Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and others have called an epidemic. The problem reflects severe strains on military personnel burdened with more than a decade of combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, complicated by anxiety over the prospect of being forced out of a shrinking force. Pentagon figures obtained Monday by The Associated Press show the 349 suicides among activeduty troops last year were up from 301 the year before and exceeded the Pentagons own internal projection of 325. Statistics alone do not explain why troops take their own lives, and the Pentagons military and civilian leaders have acknowledged that more needs to be done to understand the causes. Last years total is the highest since the Pentagon began closely tracking suicides in 2001. It exceeds the 295 Americans who died in Afghanistan last year, by the APs count. This is an epidemic that cannot be ignored, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., said Monday. As our newest generation of service members and veterans face unprecedented challenges, todays news shows we must be doing more to ensure they are not slipping through the cracks. Military suicides began rising in 2006 and soared to a then-record 310 in 2009 before leveling off for two years. It came as a surprise to many that the numbers resumed an upward climb this year, given that U.S. military involvement in Iraq is over and the Obama administration is taking steps to wind down the war in Afghanistan. Now that were decreasing our troops and theyre coming back home, thats when theyre really in the danger zone, when theyre transitioning back to their families, back to their communities and really finding a sense of purpose for themselves, said Kim Ruocco, whose husband, Marine Maj. John Ruocco, killed himself between Iraq deployments in 2005. She directs a suicide prevention program for a support group, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, or TAPS. The Army, by far the largest of the military services, had the highest number of suicides among active-duty troops last year at 182, but the Marine Corps, whose suicide numbers had declined for two years, had the largest percentage increase a 50 percent jump to 48. The Marines worst year was 2009s 52 suicides. Military suicides hit record high in 2012

In the end, Oak Hall prevailed 50-45 in a game whose outcome was in doubt until the final minute. The Warriors were led by Alexis Zachar with 20 points and Andrea Zachar with 10. The sisters combined for 21 rebounds and four blocked shots. Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer had nothing but praise for his team destire the loss. The girls played a good team and gave it everything they had, Dreyer said. Im very proud of their effort. Oak Hall used a full-court pressure defense that led to numerous Warrior turnovers and a lack of points being scored. Seven Rivers height advantage kept their opponent away from the basket and forced them to shoot from the outside. The Eagles hit only three of 10 shots but it was enough to take a 7-3 lead as the first quarter ended. At the start of the second quarter Seven Rivers was able to solve the pressure defense and its offense clicked into gear. The team started to find the open shooter and used quick passes for easy baskets. This forced the Eagles to abandon Gages 18 points leads Warriors past Eagles SEANARNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO Despite undergoing a pair of four-minute scoreless stretches in what was not near its sharpest game, the Seven Rivers Christian boys basketball squad cruised to a 50-31 victory over Oak Hall in the Warriors gym on Monday. It was a relatively tame affair between the former district rivals, with both teams featuring more of a half-court style of play that slowed the game down and kept shots at a minimum. I thought we gave a lot of effort, but I dont think we executed consistently on offense, Warriors head coach CR girls blast into semis Pirates soccer routs Taylor in District 2A-6 tourneyC.J. RISAK CorrespondentOCALA Now is no time to relax. That was essentially the halftime message delivered by Crystal River girls soccer coach Bill Reyes to his team Monday during its District 2A-6 Tournament quarterfinal match against Pierson-Taylor at Ocala Trinity Catholic High School. The Pirates started quickly against the Wildcats, scoring twice in the first four minutes, then just as quickly faded for the remainder of the half. They bounced back in the second half, however, putting four balls into the Pierson-Taylor net to pull away to a 6-0 triumph. The victory allows secondseeded Crystal River, now 10-9-2, to advance to the district semifinals opposite third seed South Sumter. That match will be at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Trinity Catholic. Pierson-Taylor finishes at 5-16. We played a lot better in the second half than in the first, said senior midfielder Melissa Cang Cuesta, who scored one and assisted on another of the Pirates first three goals. I thought we passed real well in the second half and the score shows it. We had high expectations coming into this match and we scored real fast, then we diddle-daddled around a bit. Which is what led to Reyes halftime talk. That was typical of us in the first half, he said. We came out quickly, we got the lead and that gave us a cushion. Then we got off the cushion. If we dont come out hard and fast and keep it up, we leave the door open for our opponent. In the Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Playing his first Grand Slam match as a major winner, Andy Murray looked quite comfortable in his return to the Australian Open. Murray beat Robin Haase of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 in the opening round at Melbourne Park on Tuesday. Asked what it felt like to play after his triumph at the U.S. Open, where he became the first British man since 1936 to win a major title, the thirdranked Murray said: I can try and focus on the second part of my career now. The 25-year-old Murray seemed more at ease and relaxed than he has been in previous trips to the seasons first major. It was a good start, nice to win in straight sets, he said. It was the hottest day weve had for a while so the court was playing much quicker. After a record heat wave early last week, the last few days in Melbourne have been cool. The temperature was heading toward 84 degrees when Murray was on Rod Laver Arena. Its been 12 months since Murray started working with eight-time major winner Ivan Lendl, and he attributes much of the success in his breakthrough 2012 to his partnership with his new coach. Its relaxed in front of the cameras, yeah, Murray joked. Behind closed doors he works me very hard. Weve had a very good relationship so far. Hes very honest, very open. He doesnt lie to you, he tells you exactly how it is and thats exactly what I needed. Serena Williams overcame a right ankle injury to win her first match at the Australian Open, routing Edina Gallovits-Hall 6-0, 6-0 on Tuesday. With the match 19 minutes old and Williams leading 4-0, the 15-time major winner fell to the court awkwardly, clutching her right ankle. She was helped to her court-side chair and her ankle was heavily taped by a WTA trainer. The third-seeded Williams, attempting to win her third consecutive major title, returned to the court and won the next four points, then held service to take the opening set before again receiving treatment. She dominated the second set, allowing the Romanian player to win just six points.

B2TUESDAY, JANUARY15, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS SPORTS BRIEFSDolphins planning $400M in stadium upgradesMIAMI GARDENS Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross unveiled a plan to modernize Sun Life Stadium on Monday, and promising to personally cover the majority of the $400 million estimated cost of the project. The rest would come from tax dollars, and that would likely need approval from both state and local lawmakers. However, Ross said that any public dollars for the project would not result in higher taxes for residents of Miami-Dade County. Instead, the Dolphins are looking for a slightly higher hotel tax in the county, as well as a larger state salestax rebate. And in return for the deal, the Dolphins say the deal would keep them in South Florida through at least 2034, though stopped short of saying that not getting public money would jeopardize the franchises future. They plan to add about 3,600 new seats closer to the field, improved amenities and a canopy roof that would shield fans from the elements of South Floridas often-harsh weather while preserving a natural-grass playing surface.Henderson, Linder, Porter return to MiamiCORAL GABLES Seantrel Henderson, Brandon Linder and Curtis Porter will return for their senior seasons at Miami. The trio made their announcements on Monday. Henderson started the final seven games of the 2012 season at right tackle for the Hurricanes, while Linder started all 12 at right guard and Porter was limited to only two starts at defensive tackle because of injury. With their decisions now final, Miami expects to have 20 of 22 offensive and defensive starters back next season.Irish RB Wood leaving for NFLSOUTH BEND, Ind. Notre Dame running back Cierre Wood wont be back for his final year of eligibility with the Fighting Irish. The 6-0, 215-pound senior from Oxnard, Calif., announced Monday he will enter the NFL draft, calling it a family decision. Wood was second on the team in 2012 in rushing with 742 yards on 114 carries, including rushing for 2 yards on four carries in a 42-14 loss to Alabama in the BCS title game. He rushed for 2,447 yards on 450 carries in three seasons with the Irish, finishing seventh on Notre Dames all-time list.No. 1 Louisvilles strong 2nd half downs UConnHARTFORD, Conn. Russ Smith scored 23 points and Gorgui Dieng had six points and 16 rebounds and Louisville, playing just hours after it moved to No. 1, used a strong second half to beat Connecticut 73-58 on Monday night. The Cardinals (16-1, 4-0 Big East) won their 11th straight game and like the others they relied on their star backcourt and pressure defense. Omar Calhoun led the Huskies (12-4, 2-2) with 20 points while Shabazz Napier added 12.No. 12 Purdue women win in three overtimesWEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Sam Ostarello had 22 points and 19 rebounds Monday night and No. 12 Purdue defeated Ohio State 82-75 in triple overtime. Courtney Moses led the Boilermakers (14-2, 3-0) with 24 points. Her layup late in the second extra period tied it at 68 after Ohio State had a 68-62 lead. All three of the Boilermakers Big 10 wins were in overtime. From wire reports CR scores 2-1 win on Senior Night 12-seeded Nadia Petrova of Russia 6-2, 6-0, and former No. 1ranked Caroline Wozniacki won the last six games to beat Sabine Lisicki of Germany 2-6, 6-3, 6-3. Former U.S. Open and French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova continued her comeback from a knee injury that kept her out of the U.S. Open, ending her run of 40 consecutive majors. Also, No. 14 Maria Kirilenko had a 6-4, 6-2 win over American Vania King, and Chinas Peng Shuai beat Canadas Rebecca Marino 6-3, 6-0. Novak Djokovic started his bid for a third consecutive Australian title on Monday, posting a 6-2, 6-4, 7-5 win over Paul-Henri Mathieu. Hello, everybody, its great to be back, he told the big crowd after his first match at Melbourne Park since his epic five-set win over Rafael Nadal in last years final. I have great memories. David Ferrer, who took the No. 4 seed when fellow Spaniard Nadal withdrew because of illness and injury, had only a couple of hundred people watching in cavernous Hisense Arena on Day 1. He opened with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Olivier Rochus of Belgium. Ferrer knows that without his compatriot in the draw, theres a semifinal spot up for grabs, but hes content to stay under the radar. Of course, Novak, Roger and Rafael and Murray theyve won Grand Slams, he said. Its very difficult for (another) player to win the first Grand Slam of his career. For me, I am trying to do my best. The majors in 2012 were shared by Djokovic, Nadal, Roger Federer and Murray, the dominant four men in recent years. Djokovic doesnt have another Grand Slam winner in his half of the draw after his Serbian Davis Cup teammate Janko Tipsarevic ousted Australian veteran Lleyton Hewitt, a former U.S. Open and Wimbledon winner. Murray is in the same half of the draw as Federer, who was opening against Benoit Paire of France on Rod Laver Arena immediately after womens champion Victoria Azarenka played Monica Niculescu of Romania. Congestion on center court means Serena Williams, the big favorite to win the womens title, will play her first-round match at Hisense Arena against Romanias Edina Gallovits-Hall, who is ranked No. 110. Thats the same court where her older sister, Venus, opened with a straight-set win Monday to move closer to a potential thirdround match against No. 2 Maria Sharapova, who won her first match 6-0, 6-0 in 55 minutes. Also advancing were No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 6 Li Na, No. 9 Samantha Stosur, No. 11 Marion Bartoli and No. 13 Ana Ivanovic and 17-year-old American Madison Keys. On the mens side, fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych, the 2010 Wimbledon finalist, beat American Michael Russell 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. Four American men also advanced Monday, led by No. 20 Sam Querrey, the highest-ranked U.S. man in the tournament after John Isner pulled out with an injury. Querrey beat Daniel Munozde la Nava of Spain 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-2, 6-4. The others were Brian Baker, Tim Smyczek and Ryan Harrison, whose reward for beating Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 2-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 was a second-round match against Djokovic. AUSSIEContinued from Page B1 Pirates striker Swanson nets both goalsSTEVEMCGUNNIGLE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER It wasnt the prettiest way to go out on Senior Night, but the Crystal River Pirates boys soccer team got what they ultimately wanted a 2-1 victory over visiting Leesburg on Monday night to send their seniors off the home pitch for one final time. Crystal River senior standout Travis Swanson scored both goals, the second on a penalty kick early in the second half. In the 46thminute, Swanson was knocked down by a Leesburg defender while in the box, setting up the winner. Swanson threw a subtle deke, then chipped the ball past the Yellow Jackets keeper to his right for the easy score. The Crystal River defense clamped down from there, and Pirate keeper Kyle Kidd notched 10 saves along the way. We never quit. Our goal this year was to finish games, Crystal River coach Bobby Verlato said. They got that goal, which put us on our heels. But then that PK really changed the momentum and from there we stepped up. Crystal River (7-7-6) withstood a late surge by Leesburg (6-6-3), while maintaining its cool as the game got chippy down the stretch. Each team had a yellow card in the second half, but with five minutes to go, Verlato watched his main concern unfold. Away from the ball during a Crystal River possession, Swanson was shoved hard to the ground unprovoked and seemingly intentionally by a Leesburg defender. The act went unseen by the referees, but Swanson would be forced to leave the game with a shoulder injury. After a timeout and plenty of jawing between the teams, the game was restarted with four minutes left and then immediately called over by the referee team, as unsportsmanlike play picked right back up where it left off, sealing the Pirate win. It was a complete game and we started playing like a team, Verlato said. There were individual good efforts in there Eric Hartwell, Adam Burns, and Travis got his 25thand 26thgoals tonight prior to the injury. We outshot them, Kyle Kidd played a great game, and the defense is strong. The lone Leesburg score came on a rare defensive miscue, as Tyler Ware stole the ball off the feet of the Crystal River defense inside the box, turning and firing for the score to knot it at at 1-1. Swnason opened the scoring off an assist from Andrew Dyakon in the eighth minute, taking the feed then following a deflected ball to just in front of the net, easily knocking it in past the extended keeper. Crystal River put 15 shots on goal to Leesburgs 11. The Pirates travel to West PortOcala for a 7:30 p.m. start tonight. AP source: Armstrong admits to doping Cyclist tells Oprah he used PEDs Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas After a decade of denial, Lance Armstrong has finally come clean: He used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France. The disgraced cyclist made the confession to Oprah Winfrey during an interview taped Monday, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfreys network. The admission Monday came hours after an emotional apology by Armstrong to the Livestrong charity that he founded and took global on the strength of his celebrity as a cancer survivor who came back to win one of sports most grueling events. The confession was a stunning reversal, after years of public statements, interviews and court battles in which he denied doping and zealously protected his reputation. Winfrey tweeted afterward, Just wrapped with (at)lancearmstrong More than 2 1/2 hours. He came READY! She was scheduled to appear on CBS This Morning on Tuesday to discuss the interview. Even before the taping session with Winfrey began around 2 p.m., EST, Armstrongs apology suggested he would carry through on promises over the weekend to answer her questions directly, honestly and candidly. The cyclist was stripped of his Tour de France titles, lost most of his endorsements and was forced to leave the foundation last year after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency issued a damning, 1,000-page report that accused him of masterminding a longrunning doping scheme. About 100 staff members of the charity Armstrong founded in 1997 gathered in a conference room as Armstrong arrived with a simple message: Im sorry. He choked up during a 20-minute talk, expressing regret for the long-running controversy tied to performance-enhancers had caused, but stopped short of admitting he used them. Magic blown out 120-91 on road Associated PressWASHINGTON Emeka Okafor had 19 points and 11 rebounds, leading six players in double figures for Washington in a 120-91 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday night for the Wizards third straight win. The Wizards were just 4-28 before their streak, but beat Oklahoma City, Atlanta and now Orlando all at home to nearly double their wins total. Washington leaves Tuesday on a five-game, eight-day road trip while the nations capital will be consumed by Inauguration ceremonies. John Wall had 12 points and six assists in 20 minutes in his second game of the season after missing the Wizards first 33 with a left knee injury. Washington shot a season-best 56.1 percent, scored its most points and had its largest winning margin of the season. A.J. Price and Kevin Seraphin had 18, Bradley Beal scored 17, and Jan Vesely matched his season high with 10. Jameer Nelson had 19 points and 12 assists to lead Orlando, and Nikola Vucevic added 13 points and 13 rebounds. Arron Afflalo, who had 30 points against the Clippers, missed 10 of 11 from the field and finished with two points. Orlando hoped it would be bolstered by the return of Glen Davis and ETwaun Moore, who were both hurt in games against Washington. Davis, who had 13 points, sprained his right shoulder in the Magics win over the Wizards on Dec. 19. Orlando then lost 10 straight before winning on Saturday at the Los Angeles Clippers. In the fourth loss in that stretch to Washington Moore sprained his right elbow. The Wizards led the entire game. They were ahead 28-22 after one and outscored the Magic 31-18 to take a 59-40 lead with 1:53 to play in the first half, but Orlando ended the period on a 13-0 tear with Nelson scoring eight straight points on two 3-pointers and a jumper. He passed to Josh McRoberts for a dunk to end the half, pulling the Magic to 59-53.Clippers 99, Grizzlies 73MEMPHIS, Tenn. Reserves Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes each scored 16 points, and the Los Angeles Clippers easily routed the Memphis Grizzlies 99-73 with Chris Paul missing his first game this season because of a bruised right kneecap. The matchup between two of the best teams in the West wasnt close much of the way. While Paul watched from the bench, the Grizzlies were without their leading scorer as Rudy Gay was excused for his grandmothers funeral in Baltimore. This also was the Clippers first trip to Memphis since they won Game 7 of their opening-round playoff series last May, and they held the Grizzles to a season-low in points. Eric Bledsoe, starting for Paul, had 14 points, and Blake Griffin scored 10. Zach Randolph had 15 for Memphis. Wayne Ellington added 11, and Darrell Arthur had 10.Bulls 97, Hawks 58CHICAGO Carlos Boozer scored 20 points, Luol Deng added 18 and the Chicago Bulls held Atlanta to a franchise-low 20 points in the first half of a 97-58 victory over the Hawks. Reserve forward Mike Scott scored nine points to lead Atlanta as none of the starters reached double figures. Josh Smith and Kyle Korver had nine points each. The Bulls held the Hawks to just five points in the second quarter and led 48-20 at the break. Ivan Johnson had a basket for the Hawks with 2:54 left in the first quarter, and Atlanta did not score again until Al Horfords tip with 5:15 left in the second. The Hawks missed 17 consecutive shots during the drought while getting outscored 14-0.Celtics 100, Bobcats 89BOSTON Rajon Rondo scored 17 points with 12 assists and 10 rebounds to lead the Boston Celtics to a 100-89 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. It was Rondos third triple-double of the season and the 26th of his career, including playoffs. Paul Pierce scored 19 and Avery Bradley added 16 for Boston, which won for a season-high sixth consecutive game. Kevin Garnett, who needed 13 points to tie Patrick Ewing for 16th on the NBAs career scoring list, was 2 for 11 from the field and scored just seven points to go with his 10 rebounds. Hakim Warrick and Ramon Sessions had 16 points apiece for the Bobcats. Associated PressOrlando Magic forward Glen Davis goes up for a shot as he guarded by Washington Wizards forward Kevin Seraphin in the first half Monday in Washington. Orlando lost 120-91 to the Wizards.

The second period was all Seven Rivers as the Warriors outscored their opponent 22-5 to take a 25-12 halftime lead. As the second half got underway, the Oak Hall girls returned to the pressure defense they started the game with, to great effect. The Eagles forced turnovers and turned them into points. The Eagles went on a 13-0 run to pull within two points before the Warriors were able to score their first basket of the second half. Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer called a timeout, which seemed to settle his team and cool the Eagles hot hand. The Warriors started using their height down low to score easy baskets and went on a six-point run to give them some breathing room. Oak Hall would not fold as they went on an 11-point run to regain the lead 36-33. The third quarter ended with the Eagles Madison OLeary making a three-point shot from way behind the arc as the buzzer sounded. The fourth quarter started with the Eagles holding a four point lead and that was the largest lead until the final seconds. Seven Rivers tied the score twice but were never able to pull ahead. As the clock ran down, the Warriors were forced to foul and the Eagles Taylor Tomlinson made all four of her foul shots to put the game away. Jim Ervin said. Defensively, we played pretty well for most of the stretch. But we didnt run our offensive sets from half-court and we didnt push the ball with the pass, which got us in trouble a couple of times. Seven Rivers (8-6 overall) opened to a 13-1 advantage before Eagles sophomore Trevor Pope, who paced 3A Oak Hall (3-9) with 14 points, made his clubs first field goal with 35 seconds remaining in the first period. After leading 15-7 with three minutes left in the half, junior Adam Gage (game-high 18 points, eight rebounds) and freshman guard Zac Saxer (five rebounds) each scored five points in the final two minutes of the half to help their Warriors to a 25-12 advantage at the break. Seven Rivers sophomore guard Cory Weiand tallied nine of his 14 points in the third period before senior guard John Iwaniec culminated the quarter with a 2 at the buzzer to secure a 40-16 lead for the Warriors. The Eagles played better in the fourth quarter behind five team steals and 3-pointers by three different players over a 2:30 span, narrowing the Warrior advantage to 42-29 midway through the period. But Oak Hall scored just once more in the final four minutes, leaving the Warriors to a comfortable 19-point triumph. Seven Rivers senior Jared Bogart, an undersized 5-foot-11 power forward who said he aims for 10 boards a night, led all rebounders with nine rebounds while also scoring nine points. Im kind of undersized to be playing down low sometimes, but I just try to use my strength and box out as much as I can, which coach is always telling us, Bogart said. And I think I can jump pretty high, so I try to use that and my quickness to my advantage against taller guys. I really enjoy the defensive side of the game. The Warriors, who are finished with district play and have secured a third seed for the tournament, travel to Ocala Christian Academy, tonight for a 7:30 p.m. game before returning home for a matchup with Crystal River on Thursday. Crystal Rivers good, Ervin said. (Pirates head coach Steve) Feldmans really turned them around, so were looking forward to playing them. perfect cross to me, Lammer continued. And then I had to kind of calm down because I was excited and just shoot. Lammers goal also punched the Lady Canes ticket to the semifinal match in Leesburg on Wednesday against No. 2 seed Eustis, an 8-0 winner Monday against No. 7 Tavares. The series of goals late in the second half, started by Miller who led her team with shots on frame as well marked the beginning of a more focused team who hadnt looked as in control of the ball for much of the first 60 minutes of play. Overall, Im happy that we won but I was disappointed in our play, Citrus head coach Ian Feldt said. We came in extremely over-confident. We played with no sense of urgency. No intensity. And credit Hernando, they played really tough and they had nothing to lose. The Hurricanes defeated the Leopards 4-0 in their one and only meeting Nov. 30 during the regular season. The lone Leopard goal came in the 48th minute off Erika Lewis corner kick, which managed to sail just over Elizabeth Rinaldis outstretched hands to find the back of the net. Rinaldi started the game in goal for the Hurricanes before taking over at midfield after Hernandos goal. Citrus easily outshot Hernando 19-4 in the game, but Feldt gave credit to a physical Leopards defense. They didnt give us anything easy, Feldt said of Hernando. It wasnt like they had breakdowns. Lammer credits Millers goal as the key moment in the game that changed Citrus fortune. The team was really nervous and tense (after Hernandos goal), Lammer said. (Millers goal) put us back in. Feldt hopes the struggles his team faced against Hernando serves as a wakeup call for the Lady Canes as it only gets tougher as they advance through districts. If we dont come out playing our best against Eustis, Feldt said. Its going to be real tough. second half, we were much better. It certainly didnt take long for the Pirates to assert themselves. The opening kickoff was played back to Cuesta, who sent a ball through the center of the defense to Brooke Levins for the finish. Crystal River had a 1-0 lead after 13 seconds. The Pirates doubled their advantage in just 3:36, with Aubrey Menster fielding a crossing pass into the middle and putting it into the net for a 2-0 lead. But thats what the score read at halftime, with Crystal River unable to add to its total despite numerous chances. It concerned Reyes; when these teams met in the regular season, the Pirates won 6-3, Pierson-Taylor scoring goals on a corner kick, a direct kick and a penalty kick. His concern proved misplaced. Cuesta penetrated down the left side of the defense to score with 32:35 left in the second half, and Cheyenna Tito Lyons made it 4-0 by lofting a shot over the keeper with 23:54 to play. Christina Bresson put a shot in out of a scrum after a corner kick and Natalie Ezzell fielded a pass from Delaney Owens on the left side and placed another ball over the keeper to round out Crystal Rivers scoring. Reyes knows the formula to advance to the district final. Weve got to minimize our lapses and play to the best of our ability, and not to our opponents ability, he said.

Gossett stressed the importance of education and being sensitive to other cultures during an address to a crowd of about 200. DAVID BAUDER AP Television WriterBEVERLY HILLS, Calif. The taut political thriller Homeland, the coming of age comedy Girls and Game Change, the movie about Sarah Palins rocky campaign for the vice presidency in 2008, were the big television winners in the Golden Globes. The biggest losers? Commercial broadcast networks ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox none of which aired those shows. One award for PBS saved broadcast television from a complete shutout. Premium cable rivals HBO and Showtime battled for supremacy throughout Sunday nights telecast. In the end, HBO pulled out a 5-4 victory. Its the only place to have made a show like this, Lena Dunham said backstage after the series she created for HBO, Girls, won two Globes. Cable television is the only place where Im going to get the kinds of stories I want to tell funded. Girls was named best comedy and Dunham, who stars as Hannah Horvath in the series about young women in their 20s navigating young adulthood in New York City, was named best comic actress. With the exception of fellow HBO actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus (star of Veep), the other nominees in the best actress category worked for broadcast networks: Golden Globe co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and Zooey Deschanel, star of Foxs New Girl. Dunham thanked her fellow nominees for helping her get through middle school, mono, a ruptured eardrum and the acute anxiety that populates my entire life. This award is for everyone who felt like there wasnt a space for her, Dunham said. This show has made a space for me. Showtimes Homeland scored a sweep of the biggest drama awards, including best TV drama for the second year in a row. Co-stars Claire Danes, who plays CIA agent Carrie Mathison, and Damian Lewis, who stars as Sgt. Nicholas Brody, both won top acting awards. Lewis emotionally dedicated his award to his late mother, while Danes paid to tribute to her baby son. Alex Ganza, executive producer of Homeland, recalled an arduous night of filming where star Claire Danes, eight months pregnant, had to do multiple takes being chased in a drainage pipe. Lewis said the last 18 months working on Homeland have been an exciting, wonderful journey. He said that picking up a piece of hardware like this is a great perk, holding up his Globe. Danes said she was very proud to be working in this medium in this moment in this company. Showtimes fourth award went to Don Cheadle, named best comedy actor for his role as Marty Kaan, leader of a team of slippery management consultants in House of Lies. Game Change was named best TV movie or miniseries. Julianne Moore won as best actress in a miniseries or movie for her portrayal of Palin while Ed Harris although he portrayed the man on the top of the ticket, presidential candidate John McCain was the supporting actor winner. Jay Roach, executive producer of the show, said Moore was brave to take on the role of a political polarizing figure in the film, which balances her appeal as a sudden national figure and the chaos backstage in the campaign. Now with you and Tina Fey, we have three of the most incredible impersonations of Sarah Palin, Roach said, counting Sarah Palin. Makers of Game Change said they attempted to build a balanced portrait of Palin, and Moore said backstage Sunday that it was not a character assassination. Although Palin aides criticized the depiction, the former Alaska governor told ABC News the film did not matter to her. One of the things I found in my research is that shes an incredibly devoted parent and cares very much about what she does, Moore said. The conclusion I drew was she was simply unprepared for the vice presidency. Kevin Costner won the Globe for best acting in a TV miniseries or movie for Hatfields & McCoys. The History channel miniseries proved a big hit when it aired last spring. Costner, who won a Globe for directing Dances With Wolves in 1991, nostalgically recalled walking into the awards ceremony as a young actor. Veteran actress Maggie Smith, who plays Violet Crawley, the Countess of Grantham in the PBS period piece Downton Abbey, won as best supporting actress in a TV series.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even if you have difficulties in managing certain jobs assigned to you, do the very best work that you can. Youll be better able to cope with things knowing that you tried your best. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It doesnt matter how busy you are or how many projects you start, what really counts is how much you complete. If youre smart, youll be mindful of your limitations.

CANDICECHOI AP Food Industry WriterNEW YORK Coca-Cola became one of the worlds most powerful brands by equating its soft drinks with happiness. Now its taking to the airwaves for the first time to address a growing cloud over the industry: obesity. The Atlanta-based company on Monday will begin airing a two-minute spot during the highest-rated shows on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC in hopes of flexing its marketing muscle in the debate over sodas and their impact on public health. The ad lays out Coca-Colas record of providing drinks with fewer calories over the years and notes that weight gain is the result of consuming too many calories of any kind not just soda. The company declined to say how much it was spending on the commercials, which it started putting together last summer. For Coca-Cola, the worlds No. 1 beverage company, the ads reflect the mounting pressures on the broader industry. Later this year, New York City is set to put into effect a first-in-the-nation cap on the size of soft drinks sold at restaurants, movie theaters, sports arenas and other venues. The mayor of Cambridge, Mass., has already proposed a similar measure, saying she was inspired by New Yorks move. And when PepsiCo Inc., the No. 2 soda maker, recently signed a wide-ranging endorsement deal with pop singer Beyonce, critics called for her to drop the contract or donate the funds to groups that fund health initiatives. Recent studies have also suggested that sugary drinks cause people to pack on the pounds, independent of other behavior. A decades-long study involving more than 33,000 Americans, for example, suggested that drinking sugary beverages interacts with genes that affect weight and amplifies a persons risk of obesity beyond what it would be from heredity alone. Mike Jacobson, executive director for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, was skeptical about the intent behind Coca-Colas ads and said that if the company was serious about helping reduce obesity, it would stop fighting soda taxes. It looks like a page out of damage control 101, he said. Theyre trying to disarm the public. The Center for Science in the Public Interest has been critical of the soft drink industry and last year released a video parodying Cokes famous polar bears becoming plagued with diabetes and other health problems from drinking too much soda. Coca-Cola said its ads arent a reaction to negative public sentiment, however. Instead, the idea is to raise awareness about lower-calorie drinks and what it plans to do in coming months, said Stuart Kronauge, general manager of sparkling Marketing pushHEALTH& LIFE Afew weeks ago, I wrote about the potential benefit of a glass of wine a day. For those of you who dont drink wine, here is some other possibly good news.

The researchers found people who drank more than four cups of caffeinated coffee per day were at about half the risk of death of these often fatal cancers compared to those who only Coffee, caffeine and cancer See BENNETT/ Page C5 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Revised screening guidelines Cervical cancer is an extremely preventable cancer. It is caused by infection by a virus called HPV, or Human Papilloma Virus. This virus is most commonly passed from person to person during sexual activity. There are different types, or strains, of HPV, and some strains are more strongly associated with certain types of cancers. HPV vaccines protect against certain strains of the virus. With more advanced understanding of this virus and its role in causing cervical cancer, recent guidelines for Rural areas have always had issues with being underserved as far as medical care goes, and there is not likely any relief in the future with the continuing economic problems and predicted shortage of health care providers. There are about 50 million Americans who lack access to quality primary care due to their rural settings and shortages of medical providers. Only about 10 percent of Americas doctors practice in rural America, but nearly one-fourth of Americas population resides in a rural area, making the delivery of care a challenge. Some estimates suggest that there is a need for about 50,000 to 60,000 health care providers needed to resolve this problem; this includes physicians, nurses, and medical assistants. Challenges to deliver rural medicine can include harsh weather as well as travel and transportation difficulties. Also, some of the difficulties in Rural medical care Im welcoming the New Year with a different view out of my office window. The end of the old year brought with it the end of a job. The normal nostalgia of December was coupled with a flood of memories as I departed the Health Department for a new position with The Centers in Lecanto. Transitions are always difficult, even under the best of circumstances, and I had the best circumstances at the Health Department. Ive left a great support system behind: laughter and tears with co-workers, unbelievable encouragement and trust from administration, and of course the clients with whom Ive been blessed to share a season of their lives.

Physicians are able to evaluate patients, their complaints, test results and arrive at the correct diagnosis and help in rapid order much more often than not. This is not always the case. This occurs in any profession where diagnosis of a problem is necessary. It is important, however, to refer for testing, a specialist, or for a second opinion based on differential diagnosis when the cause of symptoms can not be ascertained. It is also important when attempts at treatment have provided no benefit or the condition is worsening. Differential diagnoses are what physicians are taught to come up with as possible causes for a patients problem or problems in addition to the primary diagnosis. The differential diagnoses are important as a fall-back diagnosis to look in other directions for the cause of pain or disease if the obvious or primary diagnosis is incorrect. Having differential diagnoses helps the doctor help the patient, as they serve as contingencies and time savers in getting to the root of the problem so the most appropriate treatment, test or referral can be made in a timely fashion. A patient with heel pain may tell me they are convinced they have a heel spur based on what other people have told them. Many times they are correct in diagnosing plantar fascitis, but there are also times they are not and treatment for plantar fascitis will not help. Stress fracture of the heel, fatpad atrophy, bone tumor or cyst, flexor tendonitis, lumbar radiculopathy, gout and bursitis are some of the other common causes of heel pain. These are differential diagnoses that must be considered if treatment for heel spur or plantar fascitis fails or does not coincide with a patients history or physical examination. Treatment for fascitis when the real problem is radiculopathy will always fail. A red, hot, painful and swollen toe could be an ingrown toenail. Gout, trauma or ill-fitting shoes in a patient with neuropathy, peripheral artery disease or microembolization, cellulitis, osteomyelitis and lumbar radiculopathy could also be etiologies of red, hot, painful and swollen toes. Antibiotics will not help a gout attack. Do not be afraid to ask what else could cause the symptoms you are experiencing. I find this often helps me as the discussion with a patient often brings more clues to light in finding the cause of the problem, or helps solidify the diagnosis that has been made.David B. Raynor.

A: This is a good question, especially during hurricane season. The FDA recently (2012) issued a consumer bulletin for the safe use of drugs that have been potentially affected by fire, flooding or unsafe water, and lack of refrigeration after a natural disaster. Drugs Exposed to Excessive Heat, such as Fire: The effectiveness of drugs can be destroyed by high temperatures. You should consider replacing your medications if theres a possibility that your medication was exposed to excessive heat, such as in a fire. It is especially important to assure the effectiveness of lifesaving drugs and these should be replaced as soon as possible. However, if the lifesaving medication in its container looks normal to you, the medication can be used until a replacement is available. Drugs Exposed to Unsafe Water: Drugs (pills, oral liquids, drugs for injection, inhalers, skin medications) that are exposed to flood or unsafe municipal water may become contaminated and lead to diseases that can cause serious health effects. The FDA recommends that drug products even those in their original containers should be discarded if they have come into contact with flood or contaminated water. In the ideal setting, capsules, tablets and liquids in drug containers with screw-top caps, snap lids or droppers should be discarded if they are contaminated. In addition, medications that have been placed in any alternative storage containers should be discarded if they have come in contact with flood or contaminated water. In many situations, these drugs may be lifesaving and replacements may not be readily available. For these lifesaving drugs, if the container is contaminated but the contents appear unaffected (i.e., if the pills are dry) they may be used until replacements can be obtained. However, if a pill is wet, it is contaminated and should be discarded. Reconstituted Drugs: For childrens drugs that have to be made into a liquid using water (reconstituted), the drug should only be reconstituted with purified or bottled water. Liquids other than water should not be used to reconstitute these products. Drugs that Need Refrigeration: Some drugs require refrigeration (for example, insulin, somatropin and drugs that have been reconstituted). If electrical power has been off for a long time, the drug should be discarded. However, if the drug is absolutely necessary to sustain life (insulin, for example), it may be used until a new supply is available. Because temperature sensitive drugs lose potency if not refrigerated, they should be replaced with a new supply as soon as possible. For example, insulin that is not refrigerated has a shorter shelf life than the labeled expiration date. If a contaminated product is considered medically necessary and would be difficult to replace quickly, you should contact a health care provider (for example, Red Cross, poison control, health departments, etc.) for guidance. If you are concerned about the efficacy or safety of a particular product, contact your pharmacist, health care provider or the manufacturers customer service department. Richard P.

GROUPSContinued from Page C3C4TUESDAY, JANUARY15, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTH& LIFE screening of cervical cancer are revised. Until now, a pap test was the only available test for screening for cervical cancer. Now a new test called HPV DNA testing is also available. Pap tests have been done yearly in the past, but we now know that annual screening is not needed and can lead to harm from treatment of cell changes that would never go on to cause cancer, according to Dr. Debbie Saslow, director of breast and gynecologic cancer for the American Cancer Society. New guidelines recommend for screening to start at age 21, regardless of when a woman becomes sexually active. The groups concluded most HPV infections, which are spread through sexual contact, and cervical changes that are detected before this age would likely resolve on their own and not become cancerous. The recommendations also extend the time interval between tests. Women ages 21 to 65 should be screened with the pap test every three years. Women ages 30 to 65 who have the HPV DNA test and the pap test (co-testing) can be screened every five years. When not to screen Women who have had a hysterectomy and no longer have a cervix should not be screened, according to the new guidelines. Likewise, women older than 65 should not be screened if they have had three consecutive negative pap tests or two consecutive negative co-tests within 10 years, and the last test was administered within five years. However, women with a history of cervical precancer or a cancer diagnosis should continue screening as recommended by their physician, according to the new guidelines, for at least 20 years, even if it means testing after age 65. In addition, the guidelines recommend against using the HPV DNA test alone in women of any age or using co-testing in women younger than 30 years of age, because HPV is common in young women, but the vast majority of HPV infections are transient. This new set of guidelines will reduce the number of pap smears. This also avoids unnecessary further testing if a pap test is questionable. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHIContinued from Page C1 implementing health care initiatives and reforms are easier to do in a more sophisticated, urban setting. Newer, younger doctors who are not from a rural setting will reluctantly practice in rural areas because of the fact they are used to being in a more dense doctor population. The training centers typically provide a lot of resources and abundant supplies, and the ability to bounce ideas off of other doctors. This is difficult to do in a rural setting, particularly if you are the only show in town. Access to technology is another reason. Doctors prefer to provide the best for their patients, and fear if they move to a rural area they may have to compromise that ideal. Technology, as we all know, is very expensive and much easier to implement in a larger center where there are multiple doctors using and utilizing the technology. Sometimes in these cases the more complicated medical problems are better suited to be done at a large hospital or teaching center, and that is also the importance of a rural doctor to understand what he can do well, and what more importantly he cannot do well and needs to refer out. The latest statistics suggest less than 5 percent of medical school graduates plan on living and practicing in a rural or small town. Some ideas have been hatched as a result of this problem, and they include starting medical schools in rural or small communities that have a percentage of seats devoted in each class to students who will commit to returning to smaller rural settings. Also, choosing candidates from small rural areas will make them more likely to return to those areas and serve the underserved patient population. This is probably more practical with primary care specialties such as family practice: pediatrics, internal medicine, OB/GYN and general surgery. As the subspecialties become more sophisticated and more technologically driven, they are likely to remain in larger centers. To bridge the gap problem, there may be the ability to utilize computers, as well as telemedicine, and maybe even import a subspecialist once in a while to address these difficult medical problems and difficult patients. The U.S. government has looked at several ideas, including seeking international medical school graduates who are accustomed to practicing in rural areas, recruiting them to the United States. The National Health Service Corps is also expanding its programs by providing scholarships and loans to assist medical students who are interested in practicing in underserved areas. As our population grows, the trend is still to remain around large metropolitan areas, so small towns and rural areas will still be difficult to serve. Years ago, when there were plenty of health care providers, it only took a few months to fill the shoes of a retiring health care provider. Now it seems like it takes years, and it is much more complicated and difficult to retain someone in these areas. As a doctor who has practiced in a rural area for more than 25 years, I understand the rigors of practicing in these circumstances, but the benefits are undeniable. You live in a community with nice people who you get to know and see on a regular basis, which cannot be done in a larger center. Hopefully, these advantages will hit home with some of the younger doctors starting out, and in the future we may not have this problem.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

We are known to throw tantrums and create quite a bit of drama, leaving a trail of emotional wreckage heaped with the refuse of anger and shame in our wake. Or we can avoid the change altogether and never have any closure in our lives, just blindly hop from one open door to the next. Since I began my recovery, I have made a lot of progress in the leavings of my life moving them from rollercoaster traumas into choreographed exits, packaged highly programmed and unemotional. At this particular transition, Ive made it a personal mission to continue to bond and build on the relationships I was leaving while in the midst of the leaving process. For many years, I battled with the emotion called sad. Sadness was a pervasive theme in my early childhood and I spent years in recovery keeping relationships superficial so I could leave or be left without the accompanying sad feelings. I often left friendships just to show that I could walk away, their loss, not mine. This emotional game worked relatively well to keep me protected from sadness. Sad threw me back into those anxious times of my childhood when I was at the mercy of the state of my parents marital troubles. Sad defined a condition of being out of control, empty, and lost. Sad was to be avoided at all costs, because the wounds were severe and potentially life-threatening. What I found was a profound peace at my departure weird, right? I felt all the tough feelings. Sad was right up there, making tears that poured from my eyes, wistful memories threading through my mind in the weeks leading up to my leaving. But there were other emotions competing for air time, bringing calm and lightheartedness to those last days. Along with the old jokes revisited, there were new jokes hatched. Commitments were made and dates set for reconnecting in other venues. Messages of congratulations and well-wishes were received by my brain and cherished instead of dismissed or ignored. My exit complete, Im turning toward this next beginning. I am delighted and blessed to have been asked to become the Director of Citrus County Services for The Centers. I will oversee the programs and staff, build new partnerships and collaborations for our community, and will inspire our staff and community to successfully fulfill the mission of The Centers. This is a wonderful challenge, and Im very excited to embrace these opportunities. I need all of your prayers, thoughts and support as I move forward. Maintaining my column as I move into my new job is a special perk, and I relish the opportunity to continue my connection with my readers.

GROUPSContinued from Page C5 beverages for Coca-Cola North America. Theres an important conversation going on about obesity out there, and we want to be a part of the conversation, she said. In the ad, a narrator notes that obesity is an issue that concerns all of us but that people can make a difference when they come together. The spot was produced by Brighthouse and Citizen2 and is intended to reflect Coca-Colas corporate responsibility among cable news viewers. Another ad, which will run later this week during American Idol and before the Super Bowl, is much more reminiscent of catchy, upbeat advertising people have come to expect from Coca-Cola. It features a montage of activities that add up to burning off the happy calories in a can of Coke: walking a dog, dancing, sharing a laugh with friends and doing a victory dance after bowling a strike. The 30-second ad, a version of which ran in Brazil last month, is intended to address confusion about the number of calories in soda, said Diana Garza Ciarlante, a spokeswoman for Coca-Cola Co. She said the companys consumer research showed people thought there were as many as 900 calories in a can of soda. When talking about calories and weight gain, Garza Ciarlante noted that the company had to be careful with the ads to remain consistent with its brand voice and avoid sounding preachy. Coca-Cola declined to give details on what it plans for the year ahead. But among the options under consideration is putting the amount of activity needed to burn off the calories in a drink on cans and bottles. The company noted it has already made several moves to help customers make better choices, such as putting calorie counts on the front of its cans and bottles in the U.S. Last year, it also started posting calorie information on its vending machines ahead of a regulation that will require soda companies to do so by 2014. Public concern over the calories in soda is apparent in Coca-Colas changing business. In North America, all the growth in its soda business over the past 15 years has come from lowand no-calorie drinks, such as Coke Zero. Diet sodas now account for nearly a third of its sales in the U.S. and Canada. Other beverages such as sports drinks and bottled water are also fueling growth. Even with the growing popularity of diet sodas, however, overall soda consumption in the U.S. has declined steadily since 1998, according to the industry tracker Beverage Digest.Follow Candice Choi at www.twitter.com/candice choi.HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JANUARY15, 2013 C5 Dental staff help catch oral cancer early Iwanted to share some important information about oral cancer and how it has come into my life on a personal level. For those of you who dont know me, my name is Lisa and I have been Dr. Vasciminis office manager since 1993. My uncle, who is very much like my father, was diagnosed with oral cancer a few days before Christmas. His hygienist and dentist have no doubt saved his life. At his last dental cleaning, his hygienist noticed a suspicious spot on his tongue. She alerted the dentist, and my uncle was sent for a biopsy. The oral surgeon did the biopsy and it came back inconclusive. Rather than wait and see what happens, the oral surgeon did another biopsy and it confirmed my uncle does have oral cancer. My uncle has never smoked a day in his life. On Christmas Eve morning, he had an appointment with the oncologist and they mapped out his course of treatment, which includes surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. With this type of surgery, and because of the location of the cancer on his tongue, he will have to have a feeding tube for a period of three to four weeks while his tongue heals. As bad as all this sounds, he is a very lucky man. His oncologist said if this was left undiagnosed, it would have spread into his lymph nodes and he would be looking at lymphoma, as well. I am happy to report his PET scan showed his cancer did not spread anywhere else. He does a have a rough road ahead; however, he is healthy, has a great team of doctors and is being treated at one of the countrys most prestigious hospitals. He is expected to recover from this and lead a normal life. One very important part of this story is how it all began and how his dental hygienist found this suspicious spot and so his story of cancer began. I cant emphasize enough the importance of including your dentist as a member of your health care team. Its also important to see the same dentist and hygienist, if possible; they really become very familiar with your mouth and can pick up on any changes quickly, just like my uncles hygienist did. The misconception has always been that dentistry is just cosmetics this is so far from the truth. Your dentist and hygienist are very important in caring for many aspects of your overall health. I have always known that, and now it has hit too close to home. If you have been putting off going to your dentist for whatever reason, please make an appointment it could save your life!Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

Dr. Frank VasciminiSOUND BITES PUSHContinued from Page C1 occasionally or who never drank coffee. The study is published online in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Previous research studies have suggested that coffee intake is associated with reduced risk of cancer of the mouth and throat. To explore the finding further, researchers examined associations of caffeinated coffee, decaffeinated coffee and tea intake with fatal mouth and throat cancer in the Cancer Prevention Study II, a prospective U.S. cohort study begun in 1982 by the American Cancer Society. Among 968,432 men and women who were cancerfree at enrollment, 868 deaths due to mouth and throat cancer occurred during 26 years of follow-up. The researchers found consuming more than four cups of caffeinated coffee per day was associated with a 49 percent lower risk of mouth and throat cancer death relative to no or occasional coffee intake. A dose-related decline in the relative risk was observed with each single cup per day consumed. The association was independent of sex, smoking status or alcohol use. There was a suggestion of a similar link among those who drank more than two cups per day of decaffeinated coffee, although that finding was only marginally significant. No association was found for tea drinking. The findings are unique in that they are based specifically upon fatal cases of mouth and throat cancer occurring over a 26year period in a population of individuals who were followed very carefully and who were cancerfree at enrollment in Cancer Prevention Study II. The impact of this research could be huge. Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, and contains a variety of antioxidants and other biologically active compounds that may help to protect against development or growth of cancers. Although it is less common in the United States, mouth and throat cancer is among the 10 most common cancers in the world. This study adds to the evidence of a possible protective effect of caffeinated coffee in the development and growth of cancers of the mouth and throat. It may be of considerable interest to investigate whether coffee consumption can lead to a better prognosis after cancers of the mouth and throat have been diagnosed. Makes me want that morning cup of coffee.Dr. C. Joseph Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist and a member of the Citrus County Unit of the American Cancer Society.

It was a nostalgic gathering of former Playhouse 19 volunteers out at the Beverly Hills Lions Club for Encore Ensembles Dinner Theater production of Win, Lose or Die, a zany, madcap whodunit audience-participation afternoon. Recalling the magic that was Playhouse 19 were Beverly Dildine, Jeri Augustine, Lynne Parley, Monica Tichaeur, Pat Cram, Marsha Griffin and Jeannie Scotty. Memories of The King and I, Annie, and To Kill A Mockingbird flowed. Encore filled the hall with their special magic that memorable night with my favorite dinner theater extra-added attraction: vocals by the Shiers (Mike Sr. and Mike II) and the cast. We were invited to sing along and call out favorites. Amazingly, spontaneity reigned as we thoroughly enjoyed Give My Regards to Broadway, Tony Orlandos Tie A Yellow Ribbon, Bing Crosbys White Christmas, Neil Diamonds Sweet Caroline, Charley Richs Behind Closed Doors, B.J. Thomas Raindrops Are Falling on my Head, The Drifters Up on the Roof, and Under the Boardwalk, Johnny Mathis Chances Are, Knock Three Times and Youll Never Walk Alone. Pam Schreck practically brought down the house with an impromptu version of Ice Cream Joe after plucking Joe Plum from the audience to assist her. It was a song that she had performed as a junior high teenager. When Shier Sr. was performing Richie Valens La Bamba, Monica Tichaeur chimed in and gave a rousing rendition that garnered applause, applause, applause! Tailor made for Encores theatrical style, Win, Lose or Die was a spoof rendering of a lyrical pursuit show. With a skeleton script, it was an improvised, ad-lib, move-on musical game show. Whodunit pros were Tim Danowksi as Joe Vo, Ted Taylor as Les Parker, Michael Shier II as Furlong Shemp, Pam Schreck as Del Spiggens, Ashley Kisner as Judy Dawson, and Laura Radecki and Mike Shier Sr. as Daisy and Sparky. Brittany Malicorte served as the cue card girl. Jackie Shier was the costume assistant and kitchen manager with her staff, Stephanie Santiago and Cameron Puopolo. Audience contestants were Mark Beshears, Ted Taylor, Caroll Bowers, Lydia Valentine, and L.P. Archer. During the progression of the plot, we heard Let It Be, TV theme songs from All in the Family, 1960s hits Downtown and California Dreamin and Beatles songs, including Yesterday and Cant Buy Me Love, dueling lyrics of Jailhouse Rock and Heartbreak Hotel, Elvis Presley standards, and after Suspicious Minds, Mike Shier Sr. uttered Presleys, Thank you, very much, indicative of the Kings Southern demeanor. Swinging along with the cast of talented musicians, we thrilled to their versions of The Girl From Ipanema and Walkin in Memphis. Pam Shrecks aggressive promotion of Fruit City Beverage was a riot. Mike Shier II joined her with the introduction of Mocha Coke. Ashley Shier and Mike Shier Sr. gave a stellar performance of Barry Manilows Copacabana. Uproarious laughter was evoked as Kisner as Judy attempts to administer CPR to Mike II as the questions begin to surface: Who did it? How? Why?

TUESDAY, JANUARY15, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.William James, an eminent 18thand 19thcentury psychologist, said, To study the abnormal is the best way of understanding the normal. Todays deal seems to contain a normal play, but is it time for an abnormal one? South is in three no-trump. West leads the diamond king. What should declarer do? South had seven top tricks: one spade, one heart, one diamond and four clubs. He saw that at least two more tricks would come from spades. And since he knew a Bath Coup when he saw one, he played his low diamond at trick one. However, East had correctly played his diamond three. And West knew that his partner would have thrown out the jack or ace if he had held it, or played a high spot card. So West cleverly shifted to the heart jack. This time, East encouraged enthusiastically with his nine. Declarer ducked, but West continued with the heart 10, and East accurately overtook with his queen. Now South could not succeed. If he had taken this trick, crossed to the dummy with a club, and tried the spade finesse, West would have won with his king and led his last heart to give the defenders one spade, four hearts and one diamond. And if South had ducked the second heart, East would have reverted to diamonds, giving the defense one spade, two hearts and four diamonds (unless declarer cashed his seven top tricks). South should have won the first trick, crossed to the dummy, and run the spade queen. Yes, the finesse would have lost, but declarers diamond jack-four would have been a stopper with West on lead.

These trips included lunches and dinners with my co-workers, sometimes in groups, sometimes not. At no time did I ever have the faintest interest in having an affair. But my husband thinks otherwise. During the entire time I traveled, he constantly accused me of sleeping with somebody. I never once gave him a reason to think I was cheating. I recognized that this was just his way of dealing with his own insecurities and poor selfimage. I have not worked for a number of years, but on occasion, he stills insinuates that I had affairs. Instead of being supportive of my hard work then and now, he thinks its more important to keep suggesting that Im always looking for someone else to sleep with. How do I get him to stop? Not a Cheater Dear Not: Your husband sounds overly suspicious. We dont mean to add to the problem, but sometimes those who are having affairs accuse the spouse of the same offense. Tell your husband that his continuing accusations undermine your trust and make you wonder what is really going on. Counseling could help get to the bottom of it. If he is unwilling, you can choose to turn a deaf ear or get counseling on your own. However, if his accusations become more strident or more frequent, this could indicate mental health or medical issues, and he should see his doctor. Dear Annie: I recently made a new friend at work. We have known each other for three months, and we get along great. However, imagine my surprise last week when she told me she used my first name on an online dating site. At first I just thought it was a little weird, but now I feel really uncomfortable about it and dont know what to do. How can I get her to change her online profile without ruining our work relationship? Miffed Dear Miffed: This was presumptuous but not disastrous. If she used only your first name and the rest of her information is her own, its annoying but not compromising. However, the fact that she would do this without consulting you indicates that she could easily take other liberties down the road, so you are smart to nip this in the bud. Be nice but honest. Say, Dottie, remember when you said you used my first name on your dating profile? It really made me uncomfortable. And prospective dates dont like that sort of thing, either. Please change it immediately. If she is the type who would end a friendship over this, consider it a bullet dodged. Dear Annie: Hats off to you for printing the letter about World Suicide Prevention Day and bringing awareness to one of the most difficult events that happens in life. Only when you walk in these shoes do you understand what a person is going through when they become a survivor of a suicide. I lost my nephew to suicide in 2008. As difficult as it was, I sought the support of our local Survivors of Suicide support group. They understood exactly what our family was going through. Through their love, support and compassion, I was able to hold myself together. It has now been four years, and my life has gone on, but not without difficult days and sadness. Without the support group, it would have been much more difficult. I continue with the support group so that the incoming folks can see that life goes beyond their present grief. Please, if you find yourself in this situation, seek out S.O.S. through a national hotline, your local family services or on the Internet, for they understand your pain, and they give you hope when such darkness shadows your life.
