Aside from her role as wife to her high school sweetheart, Chris, and mother to just-turned4 daughter Blair, the 2002 Crystal River High School graduate is up to her beautifully-arched eyebrows in intrigue, romance, danger and magic. Now living in Virginia Beach, Grillo, who uses her maiden name Robinson as her pen name, is eagerly waiting to receive an advanced copy of her first paranormal romance novel, Escaped. Why paranormal? In a recent telephone interview, Grillo, 28, laughed and then explained. Ive tried to write normal books before, but if it doesnt have the element of something a little bit off, it just doesnt work, she said. The Samantha Scott novels are about witches, but its understated. Cadiza is a real place in the human world, but its concealed by magic. Everything that goes on is hidden from human eyes. Escaped is the first of four Samantha Scott novels to be published by Eternal Press. Even though Escaped isnt due out until Feb. 1, Grillo has already finished writing the second book, and the remaining two are planned out. But she hasnt yet received her advanced writers copy. Its not real until the overnight delivery truck pulls up to your door and hands you a package. Im so excited, she said. She said recently shes been inundated with promotional marketing work. The publisher filmed a trailer interview (watch it online at RachelJRobinson. com) and shes been answering hundreds of interview questions. Writers first book a paranormal romance See BOOK / Page A2 Study finds 600 openings in county E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerAre you looking for employment and unable to locate it? Workforce Connection recently released its Jobs Skills Gap Study findings. Approximately 600 jobs are vacant in Citrus County; however, the workforce is not qualified. Organizers of Land that Job deem these statistics transformable. Land that Job is a free employment preparation forum from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. March. 8, at the College of Central Florida, 3800 S. Lecanto Highway, Lecanto. The purpose of the event is to prepare people, encourage them and point them in the right direction, said United Way CEO Amy Meek. We do know there are 600 jobs available in Citrus County. We want to point people in the right direction to find those jobs. Citizens wanting to surpass their competition are encouraged to attend five segments that coach them on how to prepare for an interview, dos and donts of an interview, overcoming barriers and where the jobs are hiding. This gives everyone the opportunity to have a mental checklist before an interview, of everything I was told to do to increase my chances of landing the job, Meek said. The fifth segment is an opportunity for potential employees to engage in a mock interview with a local senior-level executive in the community. These diverse executives will give feedback to the interviewee. I know as a manager, we would interview several different people, Meek said. You hire a person and then send out Aplace exists like your hometown or like mine that can never be seen or visited unless it lets you. Cadiza is set deep in the Iberian Plateau of Portugal, far away from any civilization and inhabited by residents that are unable and unwilling to leave. Unfortunately, Cadiza is still close enough to large cities to prompt temptation in the young, willful hearts of teenagers. Or at least one, Samantha Scott. She is unlike a normal human as are all the residents there. They are Bruxas witches. Powerful ones. With her talisman now granted, a golden wrist tattoo giving her the ability to cast and spell at will, Samantha decides its time to bust out of Cadiza to fight for a life of her own in the human world. from Escaped, a Samantha Scott novel.

We must act Associated PressWASHINGTON Turning the page on years of war and recession, President Barack Obama summoned a divided nation Monday to act with passion and dedication to broaden equality and prosperity at home, nurture democracy around the world and combat global warming as he embarked on a second term before a vast and cheering crowd that spilled down the historic National Mall. Americas possibilities are limitless, for we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands, the 44th president declared in a second inaugural address that broke new ground by assigning gay rights a prominent place in the wider struggle for equality for all. In a unity plea to politicians and the nation at large, he called for collective action to confront challenges and said, Progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time but it does require us to act in our time. Elected four years ago as Americas first black president, Obama spoke from specially constructed flagbedecked stands outside the Capitol after reciting the oath of office that all presidents have uttered since the nations founding. The events highlighted a day replete with all the fanfare that a security-minded capital could muster from white-gloved Marine trumpeters who heralded the arrival of dignitaries on the inaugural stands to the midwinter orange flowers that graced the tables at a traditional lunch with lawmakers inside the Capitol. The weather was relatively warm, in the mid-40s, and while the crowd was not as large as on Inauguration Day four years ago, it was estimated at up to 1 million. Big enough that Obama turned around as he was leaving the inaugural stands to savor the view one final time. Im not going to see this again, said the man whose political career has been meteoric from the Illinois Legislature to the U.S. Senate and the White House before marking his 48th birthday. On a day of renewal for democracy, everyone seemed to have an opinion, and many seemed eager to share it. Im just thankful that weve got another four years of democracy that everyone can grow in, said Wilbur Cole, 52, a postman from suburban Memphis, Tenn., who spent part of the day visiting the civil rights museum there at the site where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968. The inauguration this year shared the day with Kings birthday holiday, and the president used a Bible that had Obama sworn in for second term, calls for passion and dedication Associated Press President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama walk in the Inaugural Parade Monday during the 57th Presidential Inauguration in Washington. N ANCY B ENAC Associated PressWASHINGTON Lets hear it for the do-over. Inaugurations are always moments of great ceremony and pageantry. But, hey, everybody can rel-a-a-a-ax a little the second time around. After the electric moment of President Barack Obamas first swearing-in, the second inaugural was just so much more ... comfortable. (Really, Monday was a doover of the do-over. The actual swearing-in took place a day earlier in a private ceremony at the White House.) Yup, that was the president chomping on gum Nicorette, perhaps as he watched the inaugural parade, while his wife and daughters rocked out in their seats in the reviewing stands. And, yup, there were Sasha and Malia casually chatting with their cousins on the inaugural platform earlier in the day, completely uncowed by the millions watching their every move via Jumbotron and television. Obama seemed so at eeeeeease. See OBAMA / Page A2 See SCENE / Page A5 Inaugural do-over: savoring the view Associated Press President Barack Obama takes the oath of office Monday.

belonged to the civil rights leader for the swearing-in, along with a second one that been Abraham Lincolns. The president also paused inside the Capitol Rotunda to gaze at a dark bronze statue of King. Others watching at a distance were less upbeat than Cole. Frank Pinto, 62, and an unemployed construction contractor, took in the inaugural events on television at a bar in Hartford, Conn. He said because of the presidents policies, My grandkids will be in debt and their kids will be in debt. The tone was less overtly political in the nations capital, where bipartisanship was on the menu in the speechmaking and at the congressional lunch. Congratulations and Godspeed, House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, said to Obama and Vice President Joe Biden as he presented them with flags that had flown atop the Capitol. Outside, the Inaugural Parade took shape, a reflection of American musicality and diversity that featured military units, bands, floats, the Chinese American Community Center Folk Dance Troupe from Hockessin, Del., and the Isiserettes Drill & Drum Corps from Des Moines, Iowa. The crowds were several rows deep along parts of the route, and security was intense. More than a dozen vehicles flanked the presidents limousine as it rolled down Pennsylvania Avenue, and several agents walked alongside on foot. As recent predecessors have, the president emerged from his car and walked several blocks on foot. His wife, Michelle, was with him, and the two held hands while acknowledging the cheers from well-wishers during two separate strolls along the route. A short time later, accompanied by their children and the vice president and his family, the first couple settled in to view the parade from a reviewing stand built in front of the White House. A pair of nighttime inaugural balls completed the official proceedings, with a guest line running into the tens of thousands. In his brief, 18-minute speech, Obama did not dwell on the most pressing challenges of the past four years. He barely mentioned the struggle to reduce the federal deficit, a fight that has occupied much of his and Congress time and promises the same in months to come. He spoke up for the poor Our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it and for those on the next-higher rung We believe that Americas prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. The second reference echoed his calls from the presidential campaign that catapulted him to re-election A decade of war is now ending. An economic recovery has begun, said the president who presided over the end to the U.S. combat role in Iraq, set a timetable for doing the same in Afghanistan and took office when the worst recession in decades was still deepening. We will support democracy from Asia to Africa, from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom, he said in a relatively brief reference to foreign policy.

Not between humans but I do believe it happens while shoe shopping. What do you like most about being a writer? Its basically a free pass to be crazy The creative freedom is a rush. What would you do with 1 million ping pong balls? Im thinking a lot of spray paint. Which do you find more embarrassing to write, violence or sex? Grillo said thats been a huge topic for conversation in her family what will Grandma think? This is a romance novel, and theres romance involved, she said. But its tame. On a scale of one to five, with one being nothing (graphic) and five being Fifty Shades of Grey, my books a two, so I think Grandma will be OK. Grillo said she has thoroughly enjoyed the writing process and calls herself a burst writer. She walks around with ideas simmering and when the muse hits she writes like a crazy person until she gets it all out. Ive always been a writer, she said. As a child I was the introverted, quiet one. Id create these little books and do the illustrations and staple them together. In fact, my mom just sent me some of them that she saved. But I really love writing. Its solitary, youre alone with your thoughts, she said. The hardest part has been letting other people see my work, because then its not just mine any more.

But no one ever calls to give them feedback on why they didnt get the job. The mock interviews will give people a critique of how they can do it better so that when they go into that next interview, they are more confident, Meek said. They will have pointers to encourage them in the right direction and give them a better chance at landing the job. Organizers are also arranging for thrift stores to exhibit examples of lowcost business attire. They can show people that there are really nice outfits for $25, Meek said. That helps people to know that they dont have to spend $300 on a suit for an interview. There are options at the thrift stores. Attendees will receive a free breakfast and lunch.

The Naples Daily News reported Alvaro Francisco was arrested Sunday after the repeated calls to 911. He faces a misdemeanor charge of misusing the 911 system. The Collier County Sheriffs Office said Francisco began making calls at 8:16 p.m. Saturday and continued until 12:45 a.m. Sunday. Each time he asked for either a ride to Mexico or the homes of his boss and friends. Dispatchers told Francisco his calls were not an emergency and he should not call 911 for such requests. From wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerThe citizens panel that hears land-use requests decided by a 43 vote last week that a Homosassabased fraternal organization should not develop a recreational vehicle campsite for its members. After its decision on Thursday, the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC), whose appointed members are Citrus County residents, will recommend the request be denied when it goes before the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Paul Furman, of Furman & Hilpert Engineering in Inverness, represented the applicant, the Crystal River Eagles Aerie 4272. He said the lodge would like to add RV camping to its facility at 5340 W. Grover Cleveland Blvd. Many fraternal organizations, such as the Eagles, Moose and Elks, offer low-cost RV camping for members, Furman said. The 9.8-acre site would need a land-use change from medium density residential district to recreational vehicle park district to build the campsite. County planning staff also brought up three issues with code standards that Furman addressed. Two of the three posed little difficulty. The 9.8-acres site was acceptable even though code standards call for 10 acres. Building a bathroom, as called for by code, could be unnecessary if all RVs that would use the site had their own bathrooms. However, the plan called for constructing more buildings that would exceed total maximum square footage, a situation questioned by Commissioner Dwight Hooper. Were they planning on expanding regardless of the RV site? Hooper asked. Is this two projects in one? The new building would come first and the RV sites later, Furman answered. Steve McColgan, Eagles president, said the fraternal organization needed more space for seating its members. He said the club currently has 471 members and almost 300 in the auxiliary. The current capacity in the meeting room is 44 people and 60 in the bar-social area. The RV park will be open only to members and not to the public, McColgan said. However, two neighbors, Richard and Patricia Cummings, told the commission the club was loud at night when its members left to go home. Motorcycles are revving up at nighttime and going in and out, Patricia Cummings said. She said she would be disturbed by an RV park where people could go in and out all night long. Commissioner Joe Chrietzberg asked if the Cummingses lived there before the Eagles club was started. Patricia Cummings replied they did. Richard Cummings said club members cut through his property with four-wheelers. He said he did not want to encourage more people roaming around with the RV park. Commissioner Ronald Lundberg asked staff if fencing and sound barriers could be required. Commissioner William Garvin said the area was supposed to be rural residential. Having gained a conditional use for the fraternal organization, the applicant was trying to move to a new designation, Garvin said. I dont think an RV park is a good fit for medium-density and rural residential areas, Garvin said. Im not going to be in favor of it myself. After the decision, McColgan told the Chronicle the Eagles is a social club, not a motorcycle club, and that no one has ever complained about noise to the sheriffs office. The request will be presented at a future BOCC meeting. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Panel: Thumbs down to RV park Issue now heads to county commission Special to the ChronicleCitrus County does not have a League of Women Voters, and has not had a chapter for many years. Nature Coast Unitarian Universalists have invited Allie Gore, of the Marion County League of Women Voters, to advise how a Citrus County contingent might join up with it, or form a local branch. The event is at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 7633 N. Florida Ave, (U.S. 41), Citrus Springs. Gore is a longtime educator who was instrumental in reactivating the Marion County league and she is willing to help Citrus County to do the same. She will show a short video on the history of the struggle for equal suffrage, which will be followed by a PowerPoint presentation and discussion of the league today. As a strictly nonpartisan organization, the league does not support or oppose candidates. It does, however,take stands on issues after coming to a consensus and works to increase public understanding of policy issues through education. The League of Women Voters a grassroots organization with chapters in all 50 states was founded 92 years ago and has been open to men for 40 years. All interested persons are invited. For information, call 352-465-4225 or visit nature coastuu.org. Unitarians invite League of Women Voters speaker Special to the ChronicleThe Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County has received a Department of Juvenile Justice grant that will directly help members grow into responsible, productive adults. The Department of Juvenile Justice grant, Street Smart, is for $22,970.05. Street Smart is a new grant funded by the Allstate Foundation through Boys & Girls Clubs of America. It focuses on adolescents, concerning the destructive lifestyles of gangs, avoiding conflict and developing resistance skills, and recognizing and valuing the differences in others. The grant addresses the statistic that youths ages 12 to 17 years are almost three times more likely to be victims of violent crimes. The grant curriculum involves awareness and prevention of gangs, conflict resolution, peer leadership training, and learning to accept and value of differences in people. The clubs also received a grant from the Florida Department of Education to help members grow into good students and lifelong learners. The Department of Education grant, Project Learn, is $24,706.97. Project Learn is a continuing grant and promotes good school habits for completion of school assignments, making good grades and regular school attendance, thereby encouraging graduation. The clubs document Project Learn goals by reviewing club members grades, attendance records and test scores. Members are expected to maintain passing grades or to improve grades and to achieve grade-level percentages or higher on the FCAT. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County are funded by grants such as this one, by Kids Central Inc., by the United Way of Citrus County and by donations and fundraising events. Local Boys & Girls Clubs receive grants Funds will go to youth education projects C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerThe dream of a Baptist minister who was assassinated 44 years ago was unfolded by Citrus Countys two cities Inverness and Crystal River on Monday to commemorate his role in advancing civil rights. Both cities hosted events with good responses to commemorate the life and work of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a leader and visionary in changing the national conscience. After a prayer from Pastor Kennie Berger of Northridge Church, Inverness, about 40 people set off at 8:30 a.m. for the Unity Walk along Martin Luther King Drive in Inverness to Liberty Park, where several people spoke before the 9/11 memorial to an additional 20 people who joined the event. Today, we honor Martin Luther King because of how he handled it, what he accomplished, how he has brought us as far as we are today, with today the second inauguration of the President of the United States being an African American, said Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted. Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said segregation was a hard subject to comprehend. I want everyone here today to look at this city, DiGiovanni said. Look at Inverness. We, right now, are dealing with a building called the Valerie Theater. Its a challenge. We didnt buy an asset. In that theater is whats called the balcony. That balcony wasnt built for more seating. That was built to promote segregation here in this community. Look how far weve come. Although his children do not see peoples color as it used to be stigmatized, DiGiovanni said, Were not finished. Laurie Dunston spoke about Kings accomplishments. You can call him by his initials, and people know of whom you are speaking, Dunston said. How great is a mans accomplishments that he would be the only person to be honored with a memorial in our nations capital who did not serve as president of the United States? Randolph Bellamy, a retired Inverness Middle School teacher and the son of the late Rev. Leroy Bellamy, who led Grace Temple Church of the Living God for more than 50 years, urged parents, ministers and officials to get behind the younger generation to make the world a better place. Bruce Bellamy, also the Rev. Bellamys son, gave a spirited recitation of Kings I Have a Dream speech that commanded rapt attention. He then drove across the county to recite the speech again at the 2013 Crystal River Martin Luther King Jr. Parade and picnic. Crystal Rivers parade started at about 10 a.m. on Seventh Avenue and turned east along State Road 44 before circling back through 12th Avenue to Copeland Park. It was presented by the MLK Jr. Commemoration Parade Committee and the George Washington Carver Community Center. This year, the parade was bigger and had more spectators coming out to see it. Fire trucks, police cars, churches, schools, military and civic groups, and convertibles filled with pageant winners celebrated Kings legacy. The parade stopped at Copeland Park for a daylong picnic and community outreach event. Honoring the dream Events in Inverness, Crystal River mark legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. CHRIS VAN ORMER /Chronicle Bernice Knight and Deborah McKinnon Johnson lead the 2013 Crystal River Martin Luther King Jr. Parade on Monday.

Parading for Martin Luther King Jr. Nations first gay mayor featured in documentary The Miami Herald KEY WEST Almost 30 years ago, Ohio transplant and art gallery owner Richard Heyman won a bitter race against a native son to become mayor of Key West, then a crumbling Navy town trying to reinvent itself as an island paradise for tourists. Heymans victory made international news. He was Americas first openly gay mayor. Now, its so what? said writer June Keith, who was Heymans secretary. But believe me, back then it was huge. Emmy-award winning director John Mikytuck tackles the story of Heyman the fascinating, complex and forgotten gay icon who died of AIDS-related pneumonia in his documentary, The Newcomer. It premieres on broadcast TV at 9 p.m. Monday on WPBT2. Its a timeless tale, Mikytuck said during a phone interview from his home in Lambertville, N.J. And AIDS is still an issue, too. The project was quite the undertaking for Mikytuck, a self-taught cameraman and video editor who went to graduate journalism school at Columbia University to hone his story-telling skills. Mikytuck, who won an Emmy in 2008 for his web TV show Reporting AIDS, did not set out to do a documentary on Heyman. He had planned to tell the story of how the deadly disease affected Key West through his own experience of working for the nonprofit organization AIDS Help while living on the island from 2001-2006. But while researching, Mikytuck said, he found Heymans life more compelling and representative of the 1980s, a decade when the gay community was making political progress following the national Anita Bryant-led anti-homosexual crusade only to be slammed again with a mysterious, scary disease that was disproportionately killing gay men at an alarming rate. A first version of the documentary was shown three years ago at gay film festivals in Alabama and Miami. It also ran for a week at the Tropic Cinema in Key West and was shown once at Cornell University, Mikytucks alma mater. He reworked the film for its broadcast premiere. The documentary portrays the six-foot-four Heyman as a charming, savvy, well-dressed and successful businessman who had been valedictorian of his high school class, went to Ohio State University on basketball and scholastic scholarships, served in the U.S. Army and opened a chain of hair salons named Sir Richards. After moving to Key West in 1973, he opened Gingerbread Square Gallery on Duval Street. The gay communitys businessmen were revitalizing Key West, and members of its Business Guild saw Heyman as the gregarious person who could lead their efforts in mainstream politics. Heyman was talked into running for public office during a party with cute, thongwearing servers and plenty of alcohol, his campaign manager Peter Ilchuk said in the documentary. In 1979, Heyman was elected city commissioner. In 1983, he made history with his mayoral triumph.

I miss this place, the onetime senator said with a big smile as he greeted congressional leaders upon arriving at the Capitol. The inaugural crowds down considerably from four years ago knew there was no repeating the raw emotion of 2009, and most people didnt demand it. I just feel so proud, said Sharon Davis, of Suitland, Md., who attended both. But the different vibe was palpable. Before, it was just so exciting you could be walking for miles and miles and it didnt even feel like an effort, said Katasha Smart of Randallstown, Md. The sentiment was the same from afar for many. Weve been there, done that in terms of electing the first African-American president, said Beniam Fantu, 34, speaking from Dallas. With the smaller crowds came smaller headaches. Sure, there were still snags at security checkpoints and Metro stops and the like. There was a smattering of protesters, and some glitches with the sound system. But there was no repeat of 2009s Purple Tunnel of Doom, the underpass where throngs of purple ticket-holders famously were stranded for hours. Even the weather cooperated 40 degrees at high noon, up from 28 four years ago. And for all that was notso-new, it was still a moment to savor. And Obama did. As he headed back into the Capitol after the swearing-in, the president pivoted and planted himself to look back at the scene. I want to take a look, one more time, he said. Im not going to see this again. Obama, who wont ever face re-election, felt free to ramp up the inaugural programs celebrity quotient this time. Beyonce sang the national anthem, Kelly Clarkson did My Country, Tis of Thee, James Taylor offered America the Beautiful. Contrast that to four years ago, when the inaugural ceremony included Aretha Franklin but also classical musicians such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Itzhak Perlman and others, and the Hollywood types were largely saved for the evenings balls. Even Michelle Obama seemed more liberated this time, sporting a new haircut with bangs! thats a little less firstlady-ish. Lots of lessons learned were deployed. Chief Justice John Roberts, who administered the oath of office to Obama on both occasions, read from notes this time. In 2009, hed worked from memory and flubbed the wording, requiring a private do-over the next day. This time, the only snag in the oath-taking was a little catch in Obamas voice as he uttered the word states in the phrase president of the United States. Even the parade planners learned a thing or two. They made this years floats shorter, to improve their turning radius and allow them to move along Pennsylvania Avenue at a faster clip. (Even so, Mrs. Obama and the girls had bailed out long before the parade reached its end well after sunset; the president hung in there through the finish.) And about those portable toilets: organizers arranged them in clusters this year rather than long lines, to make it easier to get around them. Some glitches were inevitable. Malfunctioning speakers made it nearly impossible for the flag-waving fans stuck in the overflow section near the Washington Monument to hear what the president was saying. Youre in the IT capital of the world: How can this be so hard? a frustrated Smart demanded. But even there, good will was in evidence. It does take away from the experience, but its so minute, compared to being able to raise the flag for Obama, said Anna Johnson, who came from Decatur, Ga. The party scene for this years inauguration was more muted: Fewer big names. No concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Two official inaugural balls instead of 10. But 40,000 people were ready to cram into the Washington Convention Center for those two balls. And for many, being a part of it all was still hugely important. The fact that the inaugural festivities coincided with the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday sweetened the deal for some. Julie Davis, 69, of suburban Dayton, Ohio, said attending the event reduced her pangs of guilt for not joining Kings 1963 March on Washington, back when she was working in the city as a black, 19-year-old intern. Shes always regretted that she didnt skip an outof-town meeting to attend the march. Every year since that time, whenever I heard of the March on Washington or thought about it or somebody made reference to it, it was almost like a knife cutting me, Davis said. I am very, very, very happy to be here. C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, J ANUARY22, 2013 A5 000DO72 Ocala 11:00 am Wednesday, January 23, 2013 Quality Inn 3434 SW College Rd.

Michael Winner, 77FILMMAKER LONDON Death Wish director Michael Winner, a British filmmaker, restaurant critic and bon vivant, died Monday. He was 77. Winners wife, Geraldine, said he died at his London home after an illness. Winners 30 movies included three Death Wish films starring the late Charles Bronson. Many of his features sit at the schlockier end of the spectrum, but he also worked with Hollywood icons including Marlon Brando, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum and Faye Dunaway. One of his earliest films was the 1962 nudist feature Some Like It Cool; later, he specialized in thrillers and action movies, including The Mechanic, Scorpio and the violent Death Wish series. Winner never took criticism of his films too seriously. If you want art, dont mess about with movies, he once said. Buy a Picasso. Born in London in 1935, Winner was writing a showbiz column for a local newspaper by the time he was 14, and as a student edited the Cambridge University newspaper, Varsity. In later years he was famous for a series of insurance ads with the catchphrase Calm down, dear! He also founded and helped fund a campaign to erect a London memorial to police officers killed in the line of duty. Winner had experienced health problems since 2007.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2013 Regulate gun magazine capacity In his letter to the editor, In defense of the NRA (Citrus County Chronicle Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013), Wayne Sessa is concerned that upcoming federal anti-gun legislation will transgress the Second Amendment. Its what we hear from many impassioned Second Amendment enthusiasts. The Second Amendment states, A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. There it is! We the people have a right to own, bear and shoot guns. The Second Amendment says so, and Sessa and I and the United States Supreme Court stand by it. But heres a curiosity: All 50 states regulate the maximum number of rounds (three to five) that can loaded into shotguns while hunting ducks. Why? To save ducks. Could not our well regulated militia adopt a wee regulation limiting the capacity of assault-gun magazines? You know, to keep us up with the mallards. James McIntosh Lecanto Headed down slippery slope I feel like I have a ring in my nose and I am being led to a place that I really dont want to go to, the poor house. I am not rich and I am retired, so a lot of the new rulings dont affect me, but I am incensed at the growth and escalating cost of government. Every year, it is more and more of the same. More government, more employees, more rules, laws, more spending, just a whole lot more of the same and I am sick and tired of it. I have worked every day since I graduated from high school until I retired and there has not been one year that I havent paid income taxes. The rich, the top 3 percent of income people, pay 50 percent of the income the IRS receives, is that fair? The bottom 47 percent dont pay anything, is this right? The government has raised the amount of tax that the top 2 percent are going to pay in order to protect the middle class, or the 50 percent between the top 3 and bottom 47 percent. Just who do they think they are kidding? The top 3 percent are going to pay more to support the middle class and the non-payers. But if the middle class thinks that our taxes are not going to go up they are dreaming. And the bottom 47 percent better watch out because their cost of living is going to go up also. It is rather easy to establish an entitlement program or add to it. Just borrow more money. But it is very hard to reduce it or cut it out. We pay our taxes and we also have to pay for the dept so we pay for both sides and the government sits in the middle and just keeps spending more and more and borrows more and more. What a shame it is that we are going down this slippery slope and no one seems to be able to fix the problem. Alfred E Mason Crystal River Reduce debt through lottery Republicans say we have a spending problem. Democrats say we have a revenue problem. So heres an idea. In the future when Congress wants to enact any legislation that has a cost attached, they should also be required to recommend which departmental budget to cut to provide the funds. If they dont want to cut any budgets, then they must agree to borrowing money to pay for the legislation and accept the fact they are willing to increase the debt to pass it. That way we can stop blaming one party or the other for the financial mess were in and also provide transparency in the whole funding process. Another idea whose time has come might just be a monthly national lottery. The winner(s) would split 1/3 of the proceeds while the government would keep 2/3 for the sole purpose of reducing the debt. Evlyn Skurow Crystal River I recently went to see the movie version of Les Misrables. I was familiar with Victor Hugos classic story but not with the musical, and frankly I didnt care for it. Way too overwrought for my tastes. However, there was a line among the many (many) musical numbers that piqued my interest. It was the anthem of the revolutionaries, and it begins, Do you hear the people sing? Singing a song of angry men? I thought to myself, Now there is a song that captures the spirit of our age. Everywhere I look I seem to be surrounded by angry men and women. You cant turn on the TV or radio or log on to the Internet without getting blasted by the heat of people angry about Barack Obama, John Boehner, the Congress, the economy, taxes, corporate greed, global warming, crime, sexual abuse, animal abuse, underfunded schools, food shortages in Africa, water shortages in Florida and whew. We amuse ourselves with Angry Birds, and even our fast food has a hot emotion Burger King has introduced the Angry Whopper. We have road rage, the rage of mass murderers and just the unfocused anger so famously voiced by unhinged TV newscaster Howard Beale in the 1976 movie Network: Im as mad as hell and Im not going to take this anymore! Beales rant could be the moment when we began the transition from the 20thcentury period that poet W.H. Auden dubbed the Age of Anxiety to what we might call the Age of Anger. (I thought about calling it the Age of Rage, which has a poetic quality, but rage has the connotation of anger that is out of control, and our society hasnt reached that point yet, thank God.) Anger has traditionally been looked down on as an emotion that needs to be controlled. In fact, it was once considered one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Displays of anger were seen as immature, an exercise in self-indulgence. Rather than exercising restraint and selfcontrol, someone who lost his temper was seen as weak and selfish. The writer Frederick Buechner commented about anger that of the Seven Deadly Sins it is possibly the most fun: (T)o smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back in many ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you. We didnt arrive at the Age of Anger overnight. Two or three self-indulgent generations now have been perfectly willing to consume themselves with anger and dont mind taking others along with them. To be sure, there are injustices that make us angry. The poor people and the revolutionaries of mid-19th century France had plenty to be genuinely angry about. But by comparison, the anger of early 21st-century America is one of frustrated expectations and imagined grievances. Indeed, the white middle class that seems to be the source of so much disaffection these days would be the legitimate target of the anger of those upon the barricades of Paris. We need a healthy dose of stoicism these days to give us balance and perspective. Putting a check on anger can not only lead us to see that it is unwarranted, it can save a friendship or a marriage or who knows prevent a war. Something to remember next time youre tempted to sing the song of angry men.Cary McMullen is a journalist and editor who lives in Lakeland. He can be reached at cmcmullen@floridavoices.com.

It began when Commissioner Adams, with obvious irritation, gave a fingerwagging lecture to staff about what he perceived as their lack of compassion for builders and others who have suffered in the current economy. County Manager Brad Thorpe responded by saying he had sat for the past two months and heard himself and his staff repeatedly criticized by Adams, and asked for the conversation to be on more professional grounds. This then led Adams to suggest if Thorpe didnt like the comments being made, maybe he was in the wrong job. At this point, Commission Chair Joe Meek intervened and said the conversation had gone too far and they needed to get back to the issue. Meek was right. This kind of public spectacle does nothing to advance resolution of issues facing the commission and its staff. Commissioner Adams came to the commission promising to make changes, and as an elected official he should try to effect changes he believes will benefit county residents. At the same time, he needs to recognize he is one of five commissioners, and to make policy changes, he must convince at least two other commissioners of the value of the ideas he brings to the table. He also needs to recognize staff works for the commission as a whole, not for individual commissioners, and that professional courtesy goes a long way in smoothing relationships and convincing others to follow his lead. The county commission is facing numerous challenges challenges made more difficult by the Progress Energy tax situation. Working through these will require cooperation and a willingness to explore different options. As a businessman, Adams can and should offer his insight and suggest solutions, but he should also recognize his are not the only ideas, and as a member of a board, he must work with others to make changes he advocates. Otherwise, he will be only a lone voice of dissent with no real impact on how county government functions.

When he went to church this morning, the minister was giving a sermon and a cellphone started ringing somewhere. He looked and quickly responded, Is that the Lord, is that the Lord? Actually, there was laughter following.Move CR plan I think the renewal plan for Crystal River looked good. The city should accept Commissioner (Dennis) Damatos and the countys offer to help to revitalize the city. Who cares whose idea it is? The taxpayers want action. Nice sidewalks I just wanted to say that this is Jan. 14 and nice job to the sidewalk maintenance in north Crystal River. They look awesome. Thank you.Get rid of PSC The PSC is a rip-off for the people. It doesnt do nothing for the people that work for the electrical industry. I retired from the electrical industry and I know. A lot of past governors put in who they want in the PSC and actually they own lots of shares of stock in the old Progress Energy and stuff. Anyhow, its the worst thing out there for the consumer. It doesnt work for the consumer; it works for the big industry. The only group PSC people ever turned down a raise for the electrical industry. They all got kicked out of their job. So that goes to show you when youre in the PSC, youre a yes man or yes woman, and thats all there is to it. Theres nothing for the public. It needs to be done away with by the electric officials.Ignorance in county Theres a new young man greeting people down in Habitat in Crystal River and he uses a machine to talk to you.

Its a shame that people have to be so ignorant in this county.Up North, we In essence, the downtown development of Crystal River has merit. For people approaching it from the south, this must be some perplexity. The median on (U.S.) 19 into the city from Publix going north is ugly. The amount of rubbish in the median is great. What could be done to eliminate this is to do what we do up North. The court uses persons found guilty of certain offenses assigned to community service. These people may be used for the project like these median cleanups. Citrus County should implement a policy like this.

LETTERS to the Editor More taxes A recent letter to the Chronicle requests support for President Obama while he asks the wealthy to pay a bit more in taxes, but the wealthy persons responsibility to balance the deficit is falsely assumed. I have been hearing the fair share story for four years now and have yet to be told what is fair. Have the liberal zealots not heard the CBO said the entire income of the wealthiest would only pay for our debt interest for a few weeks at best? And who are these rich folks? Are they not the people who give us jobs, create and support our economy by spending disposable income and pay most of the federal taxes already? Dont get me wrong, the wealthy should pay more, and they do in dollars (cant spend percentages). Does everyone assume fair share is money? Does a not-wealthy, nontaxpaying teacher pay a fair share, adding to the intellect of our nation? Do not our frontline troops pay their fair share by defending us? Make no mistake, most of middle class pays a form of fair share. And ironically, Mr. Obamas supporters will suffer most, with more and higher taxes despite his campaign promises. Every working person (overwhelmingly middle class) will have on Jan. 1, 2013, seen their payroll taxes rise by 2 percent. Consider too, there are more than 100 other taxes to consider, some still hidden in Obamacare legalese. Rich and poor alike pay sales tax, gas tax, utility tax, etc., etc., total add-up close to 50 percent. Mr. Obama did not promise any restriction on new taxes. They are coming too. Under consideration is 17 percent VAT tax, a real estate buyers tax, bank transaction tax, an 18 percent gasoline tax and many others. Increasing federal taxes on the rich will not cut it. Obama will get a lot more money from the middle class. He has to, its where the money is. The House of Representatives wants the president to outline spending cuts to reduce the need for economy-damaging tax hikes. Heres the log jam. Democrat legislators cannot cut spending without losing their base supporters, thereby losing their next election and thereby losing their opulent lifestyle. Theres more. Because the Fed has been printing money for the past four years, inflation is inevitably arriving soon and with a vengeance. The wealthy will be able to handle it, they have strong income. We, in the middle class, will suffer a crippling rise in all prices without any rise in income. Unfortunately, the current administration wasted four years doing nothing to head off the multiple impending crises. Blaming the current Congress misses the mark. It was the last two years of the Bush administration and the first two years of the Obama administration when both Democrat houses of Congress spent most of their time enacting an unpopular Obamacare while kicking the debt can down the road. The current Democratic Senate has not passed a budget in what, three-plus years? Why would they disavow our Constitution that way? A clue: entitlements and votes. The swing Obama supporters voted for their free lunch. Its a selfish world we live in. Remember, there is smart-selfish, there is dumb-selfish, but theres no unselfish. What will it take to save our Republic? Ted LaPorte Hernando Keeping my guns Ive just finished reading an article telling of the children who wrote letters to, and met with the president. In response to that I would say ... Oh yes, I just cant count the number of times my 8and 10-year-old came in and said, Mom, I need to write a letter to the president. Now, I am not attacking children here. But you parents need to get real, and not use your children as pawns in a political game. We all know the only opinion of any 8or 10-year-old, on any given subject, is merely a reflection of what they have heard their parents espouse. I am 62 years old and was raised in a rural/military-friendly environment, and as such, am very comfortable with guns. This does not make me dangerous. Nor does it make me a hater. I must say, I dont know if I could shoot another human being in my defense, but I can assure you I would kill a person without a second thought in defense of one of my children or grandchildren. I am very grateful to the Founding Fathers for securing my right to bear arms so that I could defend my family if necessary. No government will ever take my guns. I am positive I am not alone in this belief. Now is the time for citizens to make contact with their respective representatives and make your feelings and your voters right known to them.

The Interstate 275 crash was one of at least four pileups that snared dozens of vehicles in the state on Monday. Parts of the state saw scattered snow showers, with isolated pockets of heavier snowfall. The girl died in the I-275 pileup near the Cincinnati suburb of Colerain Township. At least 20 injured people were taken to hospitals. The State Highway Patrol says an estimated 50 vehicles were in a pileup on I75, between Middletown and Monroe. Minor injuries were reported. McDonalds settles halal suit DEARBORN, Mich.

Files show LA diocese coverupLOS ANGELES Retired Cardinal Roger Mahony and other top Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles officials maneuvered behind the scenes to shield molester priests, provide damage control for the church and keep parishioners in the dark, according to church personnel files. The confidential records filed in a lawsuit against the archdiocese disclose how the church handled abuse allegations for decades and also reveal dissent from a top Mahony aide who criticized his superiors for covering up allegations of abuse rather than protecting children. Notes inked by Mahony demonstrate he was disturbed about abuse and sent problem priests for treatment, but there also were lengthy delays or oversights in some cases. Mahony received psychological reports on some priests that mentioned the possibility of many other victims, for example, but there is no indication that he or other church leaders investigated further.

The airstrike was the third to target al-Qaida militants in the area since Saturday and indicated an uptick in the U.S. military battle against the terror organization in Yemen. On Saturday, two U.S. drone strikes killed eight people, including two known alQaida militants, in Marib province. The security officials said the five targeted Monday were traveling in a pickup truck when it was hit in Marib. Netanyahu has momentum JERUSALEM Benjamin Netanyahu seems poised for re-election as Israels prime minister in Tuesdays voting, the result of the failure of his opponents to unite behind a viable candidate against him and the fact that most Israelis no longer seem to believe its possible to reach a peace settlement with the Palestinians. The widely held assumption of a victory by Netanyahu comes despite his grim record: there is no peace process, there is growing diplomatic isolation and a slowing economy, and his main ally has been forced to step down as foreign minister because of corruption allegations. Even so, Netanyahu has managed to convince many Israelis that he offers a respectable choice by projecting experience, toughness and great powers of communication in both native Hebrew and flawless American English. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressBEIRUT Russia said Monday it is sending two planes to Lebanon to start evacuating its citizens from Syria, the strongest sign yet that President Bashar Assads most important international ally has serious doubts about his ability to cling to power. The Russian announcement came as anti-government activists reported violence around the country, including air raids on the town of Beit Sahm near Damascus International Airport, just south of the capital. Russian officials said about 100 of the tens of thousands of Russian nationals in the country will be taken out overland to Lebanon and flown home from there, presumably because renewed fighting near the airport in Damascus has made it too dangerous for the foreigners to use that route out of the Syrian capital. Assad has dismissed calls that he step down. He has proposed a national reconciliation conference, elections and a new constitution, but the opposition insists he play no role in a resolution to the conflict. The U.N. says more than 60,000 people have died in the civil war since March 2011. Russia has been Assads main ally since the conflict began, using its veto power in the U.N. Security Council to shield Damascus from international sanctions. Russia recently started to distance itself from the Syrian ruler, signaling that it is resigned to him losing power. Russian President Vladimir Putin said last month that he understands Syria needs change and that he was not protecting Assad. Russian officials say the evacuation of thousands of its citizens from Syria many of them Russian women married to Syrians could be by both air and sea. A squadron of Russian Navy ships currently is in the Mediterranean for a planned exercise near Syrian shores later this month. Military officials earlier said that the exercise will simulate marines landing and taking people on board from the shore. Earlier this month, Lakhdar Brahimi, who is the joint U.N.-Arab League envoy for Syria, said that Russia seemed as determined as the United States to end Syrias civil war, but that he didnt expect a political solution to emerge anytime soon. Russia pulling out of Syria Allys actions raise doubts about Assad regimes stability Associated PressDIABALY, Mali French troops in armored personnel carriers rolled through the streets of Diabaly on Monday, winning praise from residents of this besieged town after Malian forces retook control of it with French help a week after radical Islamists invaded. The Islamists also have deserted the town of Douentza, which they had held since September, according to a local official who said French and Malian forces arrived there on Monday as well. The militants occupation of Diabaly marked their deepest encroachment into governmentheld territory, and Mondays retaking of the town is a significant victory for the French-led intervention. Diabaly, about 320 miles north of Bamako, the capital, fell into rebel hands Jan. 14. Residents said those who fled in the aftermath were forced to escape on foot through rice fields. We are truly really grateful to the French who came in the nick of time, said Gaoussou Kone, 34, the head of a local youth association. Without the French, not only would there no longer be a Diabaly, there would soon no longer be a Mali. These people wanted to go all the way to Bamako. On Monday, all that remained of the Islamists were the charred shells of their vehicles destroyed by the French air strikes. Three of them were clustered in one location, the machine gun cannon of one still pointing skyward. The cluster of rebel vehicles was directly in front of the home of an elderly man, Adama Nantoume, who said the French bombs started falling at around 11 p.m. the same day that the Islamists occupied Diabaly. I was at home, sitting like this against the wall, he said, showing how he had hugged his knees to his chest in a fetal position. The plane came and the bombs started to fall. After that, I saw that the cars had caught on fire. And the explosions were so loud that for a while I thought I had gone deaf. I was suffocated by the smoke and the light burned my eyes. The gas made me cry. Islamists had seized Diabaly just days after the French began their military operation on Jan. 11. The offensive is aimed at stopping the radical Islamists from encroaching toward the capital in Malis south from their strongholds in the vast, desert north where they have been amputating the hands of thieves and forcing women to wear veils for the last nine months. Meanwhile, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi who hails from his countrys oldest Islamist group, the Muslim Brotherhood opposed Frances military intervention in Mali.

Associated PressALGIERS, Algeria The hostage-taking at a remote Algerian gas plant was carried out by 30 militants from across the northern swath of Africa and two from Canada, authorities said. The militants, who wore military uniforms and knew the layout, included explosives experts who rigged it with bombs and a leader whose final order was to kill all the captives. The operation also had help with inside knowledge a former driver at the plant, Algerias prime minister said Monday. In all, 38 workers and 29 militants died, the Algerian prime minister said Monday, offering the governments first detailed account of four days of chaos that ended with a bloody military raid he defended as the only way possible to end the standoff. Five foreigners are still missing. You may have heard the last words of the terrorist chief, Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal told reporters. He gave the order for all the foreigners to be killed, so there was a mass execution, many hostages were killed by a bullet to the head. Mondays account offered the first Algerian government narrative of the standoff, from the moment of the attempted bus hijacking on Wednesday to the moment when the attackers prepared Saturday to detonate bombs across the sprawling complex. Thats when Algerian special forces moved in for the second and final time. All but one of the dead victims an Algerian security guard were foreigners. The dead hostages included seven Japanese workers, six Filipinos, three energy workers each from the U.S. and Britain, two from Romania and one worker from France. The prime minister said three attackers were captured but did not specify their nationalities or their conditions or say where they were being held. He said the Islamists included a former driver at the complex from Niger and that the militants knew the facilitys layout by heart. The vast complex is deep in the Sahara, 1,300 miles south of Algiers, with a network of roads and walkways for the hundreds of workers who keep it running. The militants had said during the standoff that their band included people from Canada, and hostages who had escaped recalled hearing at least one of the militants speaking English with a North American accent.

And the Kings are on the edge of leaving Sacramento. All that appears to stand in the way now is approval by NBA owners. The Maloof family has agreed to sell the Kings to a Seattle group led by investor Chris Hansen, the league confirmed in a statement Monday morning. The deal is still pending a vote by the NBA Board of Governors. A person familiar with the decision said that Hansens group will buy 65 percent of the franchise, which is valued at a total price of $525 million, and move the team to Seattle and restore the SuperSonics name. The deal will cost the Hansen group a little more than $340 million. The Maloofs will have no stake in the team. The Maloofs will get a $30 million non-refundable down payment by Feb. 1, according to the deal, the person said. They will still be allowed to receive other offers until the league approves the sale.

In a match featuring 10 breaks of serve six by Li the sixth-seeded Chinese player broke Radwanskas service in the sixth game of the second set without allowing her opponent a point. Serving for the match, Li fended off two break points before prevailing in 1 hour, 42 minutes. Li, a losing finalist here to Kim Clijsters in 2011 just before she clinched her only Grand Slam title at the French Open, will play the winner of Tuesdays later quarterfinal between Maria Sharapova and Ekaterina Makarova. Radwanska won tournaments in Auckland and Sydney ahead of the Australian Open. Sloane Stephens has heard a lot of advice from Serena Williams. Pointers on her groundstrokes, and even on her grunts. Its been mostly gentle encouragement, occasionally spiced with headline-making comments from Williams, who has predicted the 19-year-old American will one day top the womens rankings. As Stephens learned earlier this month, though, its one thing to play with Williams, another to play against the 15-time Grand Slam champion. When they meet Wednesday at the Australian Open, Williams will have the experience of 34 previous Grand Slam quarterfinals behind her. With a comeback 6-1, 3-6, 7-5 win over UFs tenacious D Wilbekin wreaks defensive havoc for No. 8 Gators Associated PressGAINESVILLE Scottie Wilbekin is one of Billy Donovans best defenders. Now and ever. Floridas junior point guard showed his defensive prowess last week by shutting down Texas A&Ms Elston Turner and Missouris Phil Pressey in lopsided victories that extended the teams winning streak to six games. Turner, coming off a 40-point game at Kentucky, managed four points on 1-of-10 shooting. Pressey, one of the more dynamic point guards in the country, finished with two points on 1-of-7 shooting and had a career-high 10 turnovers. Wilbekin wreaked havoc on both of them. Its unbelievable, teammate Erik Murphy said Monday. The guy just comes out and guards. I dont think Ive ever played with a guy who can guard on the ball like that on any level high school, AAU or college. The eighth-ranked Gators (14-2, 4-0 Southeastern Conference), who play at Georgia on Wednesday night, lead the league in just about every defensive category. Wilbekin has been the key to the whole thing. Hes always hung his hat on being a great defender, Donovan said. Thats always been important to him. Our defense has gotten better and hes got a lot to do with that. As a point guard, its probably somewhat changed our teams mentality a little bit going out there and defending the way we have. And it certainly starts with your point guard because hes picking the ball up from the press, hes out there at the top and he can set the stage. ... I dont need to motivate him to play defense. Its important to him. Donovan had high praise for Wilbekin on Monday, putting him in the same defensive class as former players Justin Hamilton (1999-2003) and Corey Brewer (2004-07).

B2 T UESDAY, J ANUARY22, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS A true champion W hile taking a great morning run with my wife through Whispering Pines Park in Inverness last week, we started discussing the issue of Lance Armstrong, who was a great American sports hero. My wife loves to talk on these long runs and I just try to breathe and get few words into the conversation. I marvel at how naturally and easily my wife a lifetime track and endurance athlete covered the distance. She has pure natural talent, as well as years of hard work and training. And that seemed to be the point. Are there still truly great athletes and what does it take to be a truly great athletic champion and not take drugs? Like so many current athletes who have fallen from grace such as Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Marion Jones, they all started with exceptional talent. Armstrong had provided and maintained the great non-performance enhancing drug deception for years. He started out as a kid with a bike, lots of talent and worked hard and rode his way to the top. At some point, the progression from one level of performance to a higher level resulted in turning to drugs, as was the case in all of the aforementioned athletes. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to be on the speakers platform with Greg LeMond, the three-time winner of the Tour de France and the first American to do so. He invited me to his bike racing camp in the foothills of the Sierras. At the time, I thought I was in superb shape and a hotshot road bike racer being able to go for miles. I showed up at training camp and sat down for lunch with the guys when Greg notified the group that we were going out on a short two-hour warm-up ride. I had minimal concern about keeping up with the group training with Greg that was headed to the Tour. Getting on my bike after lunch, on a great sunny day, I was in the middle of the pack; however I rapidly found myself not only behind, but also out of sight. I returned to camp well after sunset and was fortunate there was a full moon. During this short training ride/torture, Greg and Steve Bauer, Olympic bronze medal road racer, came back to check on me. On their bikes, they were so smooth and with such amazing power, I thought they were on motorcycles. The point of my story is that Greg LeMond one of the most vocal athletes and Tour de France riders has decried the use of performance enhancing drugs from the start. He knew what it took just to win the Tour de France once legally and to watch another win it seven times, really! It took hard work and sacrifice. What it takes to be a champion starts with talent but does not end with drug use, though there is no question it is rampant throughout sport ... every sport and starting at amazingly young ages and causing both physical and mental illness. The key quality athletes must have beyond talent is the psychology to move past other talented athletes. These attributes include coachability, the willingness to learn and being able to perform under pressure when all those learned skills and talents are needed. Attitude is at the top of the list. There are very small margins that separate the winner from the loser. A champion has to have the extra bit of drive, persistence and perseverance. Olympic decathlon champion Daley Thompson would train twice on Christmas day because he knew his competitors would only do it once. Figure skating champions I knew worked extra hours on their new triple rotation jumps, fell skidding across the ice, got up and did it again and again. What many top champions do is to work and work and work and then say a little prayer. What we have to do is teach our kids that drugs are not the option to be a champion.

The Hurricanes capitalized with goals in the second half, including a shot from forward Juan Rodriguez that Pirates defender Austin Porta tried to deflect away from goal. Goalkeeper Kyle Kidd got caught back in the goal when the deflection occurred and could not keep the ball from passing the goal line. Crystal River entered the playoffs with high hopes after last season, when they missed the playoffs and finished with a 7-12-1 record. Head coach Bobby Verlato restructured the lineup, including having Swanson who alternated between forward and midfielder last year set in the lineup as a striker. Swanson responded by having his best season, which he acknowledged Monday was unexpected. Personally, Swanson said, I had gone over what I had expected myself to do. The Pirates played a tough 21-game schedule, with several on back-toback nights. They showed improvement in many areas; however, the team struggled to overcome injuries, and couldnt find consistent scorers to back up Swansons breakout year. After the final whistle marked their seasons end, Verlato thanked his team and seniors for their hard work all year, telling them, I hate for it to end that way. With 15 seniors departing, Verlato considers next season a rebuilding one. Kidd who finished the season with a remarkable 212 saves will return in goal. Hell be supported by defender Raymond Dingler and forward AJ Bass, among others. Verlato said there will be good things to work with. Its going to be a totally different look a totally different mentality, Verlato said. years playing behind Erving Walker, getting a few minutes here and there while showing glimpses of potential. Walker left Florida ranked fourth on the programs all-time scoring list (1,777) and first in assists (547). No doubt, he was one of the more consistent players in Donovans 17 seasons in Gainesville. But the Gators might be better with Wilbekin running the show. They certainly are better defensively. Wilbekin is averaging 8.3 points, 4.9 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.9 steals. Hes never going to touch Walkers career marks, but consider this: Walker had one 10-assist game in four years, including three as a starter. Wilbekin has posted two double-digit-assist games this month. Hes been good in terms of getting in the lane and making good decisions, Donovan said. His offense continues to grow. He takes good shots. He takes open ones. Hes a good finisher at the basket, and when he gets down the lane it kind of opens things up for us. A lot of times, when Erving would get down the lane, he would bet swallowed up. He would leave his feet sometimes, would drive me nuts, whereas I think Scottie can get down the lane and he can finish at the rim a little bit better. Still, Wilbekins defense is getting most of the attention. The 6-foot-2 Wilbekin doesnt have the height or reach of Hamilton or Brewer. But his quick feet, fast hands, gritty style and instincts make him a tough defender. And hes contagious. Center Pat Young, guard Mike Rosario and others feed off Wilbekins defensive intensity. And guard Kenny Boynton, who has been the teams top defender in recent years, seems to be benefiting most from Wilbekins play. With Wilbekin taking on the toughest defensive assignment, Boynton is able to rest more than usual on that end. Hes impressive, Boynton said. Hes taken over that role, and it says a lot about how much hes matured in a year. Wilbekin was suspended to start the season, missing the first three games for an undisclosed violation of team rules. But hes rebounded as well as Donovan expected and really settled into his role as a defensive stopper. And with Wilbekin leading the way, Florida hasnt allowed any opponent to reach 70 points this season. And in four SEC games, the Gators are giving up just 48.7 points. Scotties playing amazing right now, Young said. In my book, hes the best point guard Ive ever played with.

There is work to be done to prepare for the Super Bowl, prepare for each other, prepare for a history-making day already being widely hyped as Harbowl or Superbaugh depending which nickname you prefer. It doesnt matter who the coach is, what relationship you have with the person on the other side, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said so matter-of-factly Monday. Their parents sure arent picking sides for the Feb. 3 matchup in New Orleans. These days, the Harbaughs longtime coaching father, Jack, stays away from game-planning chatter or strategy sessions with his Super Bowl-bound coaching sons. Baltimores John Harbaugh and little brother Jim have been doing this long enough now to no longer need dads input. Yet, they still regularly seek it. And, their father does offer one basic mantra: Get ahead, stay ahead. Probably the greatest advice that Ive ever been given and the only advice that Ive ever found to be true in all of coaching, I think we mentioned it to both John and Jim ... the coaching advice is, Get ahead, stay ahead, Jack Harbaugh said. If Im called upon, Ill repeat that same message. His boys still call home regularly to check in with the man who turned both on to the coaching profession years ago, and the mother who has handled everything behind the scenes for decades in a highly competitive, sports-crazed family with all the routine sports clichs to show for it. The Harbaugh brothers will become the first siblings to square off from opposite sidelines when their teams play for the NFL championship at the Superdome. Not that theyre too keen on playing up the storyline that has no chance of going away as hard as they try. Well, I think its a blessing and a curse, Jim Harbaugh said Monday. A blessing because that is my brothers team. And, also, personally I played for the Ravens. Great respect for their organization. ... The curse part would be the talk of two brothers playing in the Super Bowl and what that takes away from the players that are in the game. Every moment that youre talking about myself or John, thats less time that the players are going to be talked about. Bojana Jovanovski, Stephens qualified for her first quarterfinal at a major tournament. It will be tough, obviously. Its quarters of a Grand Slam, Stephens said. There wont be that, like, first time, Oh, my God, Im playing Serena. Thats kind of out of the window now. So thats good. Williams and defending champion Victoria Azarenka advanced Monday, losing just four games between them against Russian rivals. Williams beat No. 14 Maria Kirilenko 6-2, 6-0, and Azarenka defeated Elena Vesnina 6-1, 6-1. Next up for Azarenka is a quarterfinal against Svetlana Kuznetsova, who entered the seasons first major tournament ranked No. 75 but has won titles at the 2004 U.S. Open and 2009 French Open. On the mens side, No. 2 Roger Federer and U.S. Open champion Andy Murray stayed on course for a semifinal in their half of the draw. Federer won 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-2 over big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic, advancing to the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam for the 35th consecutive time, while Murray took advantage of Gilles Simons fatigue for a 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 victory. Federer will face 2008 Australian finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who beat friend and fellow Frenchman Richard Gasquet 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. Murray, who ended a 76year drought for British men in Grand Slam tournaments with a win at the U.S. Open, will next play unseeded Frenchman Jeremy Chardy. Chardy, who hit with Williams in a training camp at Mauritius at the end of 2012, followed up his upset win over 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro with a 5-7, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory over No. 21 Andreas Seppi. Top-ranked Novak Djokovic, who needed five hours to beat Stanislas Warwinka in the fourth round, is on the other side of the draw. Hell face No. 5 seed Tomas Berdych on Tuesday. Williams played Stephens at the Brisbane International earlier this month, winning their quarterfinal 6-4, 6-3 en route to the title. That night, Stephens said, she lost to the best player in the world. But there were times in the match when the American teenager was cranky, particularly when Williams unleashed some loud and long Come ons to celebrate vital points. Stephens, looking toward her coach at one point, said the celebrations were disrespectful. Later, she said she was just joking. Regardless, it was a lesson. The friendly Serena from the locker room is the ultimate competitor shes on a 20match winning roll and has lost only once since her firstround exit at the French Open. FORAYContinued from Page B1

Associated PressSYDNEY Indicted Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom launched a new filesharing website that promises users greater privacy and defies the U.S. prosecutors who accuse him of facilitating massive online piracy. The colorful entrepreneur unveiled the Mega site ahead of a lavish gala and news conference at his New Zealand mansion on Sunday night, the anniversary of his arrest on racketeering charges related to his now-shuttered Megaupload file-sharing site. The site Dotcom started in 2005 was one of the most popular sites on the Web until U.S. prosecutors shut it down and accused him and several company officials of facilitating millions of illegal downloads. In Dotcoms typical grandiose style, the launch party featured a tongue-incheek re-enactment of the dramatic raid on his home a year earlier, when New Zealand police swooped down in helicopters onto the mansion grounds and nabbed him in a safe room where he was hiding. Mega is going to be huge, and nothing will stop Mega whoo! a gleeful Dotcom bellowed from a giant stage set up in his yard, seconds before a helicopter roared overhead and faux police agents rappelled down the side of his mansion. Dotcom eventually ordered everyone to stop this madness! before breaking out into a dance alongside miniskirt-clad guards as music boomed. Bravado aside, interest in the site was certainly high. Dotcom said half a million users registered for Mega in its first 14 hours. U.S. authorities are trying to extradite the German-born Internet tycoon from New Zealand, where he is free on bail. Prosecutors say Dotcom made tens of millions of dollars while filmmakers and songwriters lost around $500 million in copyright revenue. U.S. prosecutors declined to comment on the new site, referring only to a court document that cites several promises Dotcom made while seeking bail that he would not and could not start a Megaupload-style business until the criminal case was resolved. I can assure the Court that I have no intention and there is no risk of my reactivating the Megaupload.com website or establishing a similar Internet-based business during the period until the resolution of the extradition proceedings, Dotcom said in a Feb. 15, 2012, affidavit. Dotcom argues that he cant be held responsible for copyright infringement committed by others and insists Mega upload complied with copyrights by removing links to pirated material when asked. N AHAL T OOSI Associated PressT he Big Truck That Went By: How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster (Palgrave Macmillan), by Jonathan M. Katz After two and onehalf years in Haiti, Jonathan Katz was preparing to leave the impoverished but endlessly intriguing nation in January 2010. His next reporting assignment: Afghanistan. Then, a massive earthquake ripped apart his house, his plans and the lives of Haitians all around him. So Katz, then an Associated Press reporter and the only full-time American correspondent in Haiti, wound up staying to chronicle the aftermath of the temblor. Life in Afghanistan may have been more uplifting. In The Big Truck That Went By: How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster, Katz eloquently blends personal anecdotes and Haitian history with in-depth reportage to show how one catastrophe led to so many more, and how, three years later, Haiti has barely moved forward. At the heart of the book lies the question, does foreign aid actually work? Or, to paraphrase Katz, whatever happened to that $20 you sent to help the people of Haiti? The answers are not inspiring, and they should make people seriously think twice about donating to an international aid organization. For people who live or work in conflict zones where non-governmental organizations and U.N.-linked aid groups operate, Katzs findings may not be that surprising, simply a reaffirmation of depressing truths. But the ordinary reader will likely be shocked to learn of some of the tricks of the aid trade. For one thing, pledging money isnt the same as giving money, but governments around the world were quick to ignore that distinction when issuing their news releases about how they would save Haiti. Instead, billions of dollars pledged to help the quake-struck nation have yet to materialize, and the U.S. is no saint in this regard. The billions promised to Haiti also included significant amounts in debt relief. But its strange to count this as aid, Katz argues. After all, for people living in rubble and scrounging for food, its meaningless to hear that their government doesnt have to pay back money it didnt have in the first place. When countries do give money, much of it goes to international aid organizations the Red Crosses, the Save the Whatevers whose spending habits are difficult to trace and often questionable. Such groups frequently spend extraordinary amounts on their own administrative costs, money that doesnt get anywhere near suffering Haitians. Huge chunks of aid funds are spent on everything from SUVs to personal security guards to luxury hotel suites, not to mention many, many plane tickets, because, after all, aid workers are a peripatetic bunch. Many spend only a few weeks in a disaster zone, and the constant change in personnel means tremendous time is wasted getting newcomers up to speed. An international aid worker who spends more than two years in a troubled country such as Haiti is what counts as exceptional. So much for institutional memory. Or getting to understand the people and what they need. Even more direct government spending yielded some gems, Katz found. Why did the earthquake prompt the U.S. Coast Guard to spend $4,462 on a deep-fat fryer, Katz asks, noting that figure is years of income for the average Haitian. Then there was the $18,000 contract the U.S. Navy signed for a jungle gym from a Georgia company which it could have bought for one-third the amount online. Many of the contracts signed post-quake were with non-Haitian companies, which is understandable to a degree considering the lack of capacity in the struggling country. But, Katz argues, its misleading to call such spending money for Haiti, especially when it gives the impression that any Haitian could have misappropriated or even profited from it. If anything, much of the money was a stimulus program for the donor countries themselves. But what to do with your $20? Give it to the Haitians themselves? Katz, in effect, argues yes. Do research, find groups that have longstanding experience in Haiti with people who speak the local languages and actually understand the situation on the ground. Katz also questions the conventional wisdom that the Haitian government is too corrupt to be entrusted with more of the money. He raises legitimate concerns about how people define corruption in Haiti and whether the definition is so broad that it is an impediment to strengthening the government in the long term. Katz argues that the Haitian government has been so left out of the loop, and received so little direct aid, that it has not had a chance to prove its worth. Its a vicious cycle: The fact that so much of the money goes to groups outside the government keeps it from ever gaining strength, ability or the confidence of its people. Sadly, this was the case long before the earthquake aid groups have long proliferated in Haiti while the government is barely functional. The situation begs the question: Is their longevity in Haiti something aid organizations should boast of? After all, if theyd done their job, would they even need to be there anymore? The Big Truck That Went By is hardly a statistical analysis or a mere policy book. It probably could have devoted a hundred more pages to the question of aid and remained riveting. Instead, Katz elegantly uses personal anecdotes and the stories of Haitians whose lives were turned upside down to paint a portrait of a struggling yet beguiling country. He also includes dollops of history for the novices among us, background that anyone with a rosy view of U.S. intervention should read carefully. In one of the most interesting sections, Katz describes investigating what led to the cholera outbreak in Haiti months after the earthquake, proving almost beyond any doubt that the illness was imported by U.N. troops something for which he says the world body has yet to be held accountable. One hopes that the policymakers involved in helping Haiti read this book and take it to heart. The people of Haiti certainly deserve better than what theyve been getting. Road to disaster Birthday Lucky you, because during tough times, two loyal friends might go out of their way to make your life easer in the year ahead. Be sure to show proper gratitude for their intervention. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) In an involvement with friends, dont depend upon any one person to get things organized. You should know if you want something done, do it yourself. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Youre likely to be far more successful in your commercial affairs if you use an indirect approach. Dont be too obvious about your intentions and tip your hand prematurely. Aries (March 21-April 19) If you feel you could do a better job of making arrangements for others than someone else, dont hesitate to ask to take over. That person might be pleased to get rid of the job. Taurus (April 20-May 20) An important objective is reachable, but you might have to alter your tactics to achieve it. You wont mind being flexible. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Because you always do quite well with situations that challenge your imagination and creativity, you wont dodge assignments that appear complex or difficult to others. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Much to your surprise, youll perform ably and even reap substantial benefits from an arrangement that you thought offered little or no possibilities whatsoever. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Teaming up with others could turn out to be a fortunate move for you, especially if your allies are as bold as you are. This is not a day for shrinking violets. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You are now in a cycle where you could receive a lot of deserving acknowledgement and rewards for past work. Instead of easing up, push harder. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Instead of attempting to manipulate developments, let nature run its course. Youre in a fortunate cycle, but Lady Luck needs lots of room and freedom to operate. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Remain both hopeful and expectant today, because, just when you think an important matter cant be finalized to your satisfaction, events will take a turn for the better. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Try once again to get in touch with certain people who you believe are important to your immediate plans. They are likely to be more receptive to your ideas than they were previously. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be sure to manage your resources with extreme care, because your material trends look uncertain. Dont unrealistically raise your expectations.

H EATHERH OLLINGSWORTH Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. The case of a Kansas sperm donor being sued by the state for child support underscores a confusing patchwork of aging laws that govern assisted reproduction in the United States and often lead to litigation and frustration among would-be parents. Complex questions about parental responsibility resurfaced late last year, as Kansas officials went after a Topeka man who answered a Craigslist ad from a lesbian couple seeking a sperm donor. Because no doctor was involved in the artificial insemination, the state sought to hold William Marotta financially responsible for the child when the women split up and one of them sought public assistance. A hearing is set for April. Many states havent updated their laws to address the evolution of family structures such as same-sex families, single women conceiving with donated sperm or artificial inseminations performed without a doctors involvement. At-home insemination kits are inexpensive, and obtaining sperm from a friend, or even a donor met over the Internet, allows women to avoid medical costs that generally arent covered by insurance. But experts say that as case law changes, families put themselves at risk by failing to seek legal advice. The first wave of assisted reproduction laws were based on model legislation from 1973. These statutes typically call for, among other things, the involvement of a medical provider in order for a sperm donor to be freed of parental responsibility. They put a whole bunch of what they thought were reasonable restrictions on the process to encourage people to do it responsibly, said Steve Snyder, a Minnesota family law attorney and chairman of an assisted reproduction committee for the American Bar Association. But, he said, the problem is that if people dont fall under the strict terms of the law, then the law doesnt protect you. As a result, the doctor involvement requirement and other stipulations were Child support?H EALTH & L IFE F or many years, I have written about the dangers of smoking in relation to cancer, and not only cancer of the lung.

Now a new study not only shows a link between smoking and the risk of developing cancer, but also a strong link between continuing to smoke and the chance of dying from the cancer. In this study, smoking was found to not only cause bladder cancer, it also affects its course, in that people who smoke more have a greater likelihood of developing a more aggressive and deadly form of this cancer.

The practical definition is that it is anxiety and pain produced by just being in a normal environment. This phenomena is described as a situation where an individual hears sounds louder than they actually are, and as a result becomes very sensitized, and can even have so much discomfort it creates pain. Now, we are all familiar with loud noises such as jet engines, race cars and guns that will hurt our ears, but could you imagine getting pain from everyday noises such as your eyes moving in your head, or hearing yourself chewing, or simply walking on the ground hearing the repeated steps? How about the fact when you leave your house, you dont know where the next noise could be coming from, and that could certainly be anxiety producing if that noise would cause you to have some discomfort. Hyperacusis acute hearing Q : When I was a younger child, I chipped my front tooth at the base. I was told the root died and I had root canal on that tooth. Im currently 44 years old, and about 16 years ago, my dentist in Birmingham, Ala., replaced the crown I had on that tooth with a porcelain to metal (I believe) crown. The tooth itself is perfect and the color is perfect. My complaint over all these years is the gum tissue above my tooth is dark. It is not the top of the crown meeting the gum that makes it appear dark, as it is dark well above that area. Is it the metal post coming through giving that appearance, or is my gum tissue actually dark due to the deadening of the root? Do I have any other options to get rid of the appearance of the darker gum tissue?

C HRISTINE B ROUSSARD The Daily Sentinel of Nacogdoches NACOGDOCHES, TexasN o one would assume by looking at him that Scott Massey, 46-yearold Nacogdoches resident and Mental Health and Mental Retardation county employee, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder. Following recent shootings in Colorado and Connecticut, the debate over mental health options and awareness have increased. For Massey, the stigma that comes with having a mental disorder and its treatment can best be addressed through education. Educating is very important. Educating and insight, he said. The more education you have, the more insight you have. The more insight, the quicker people will get well. As long as people know whats going on, its not a mystery. Like most mental illnesses, Masseys PTSD is controlled through a series of medications, self-relaxation therapy and monthly checkups. Although stabilized, his fight is constant and required a very long, bleak period of adjustment. Masseys childhood was simple, but unique. The son of a Chickasaw Indian, Massey lived with his biological father in Oklahoma as a member of the Chickasaw Nation. After his mother remarried, she and her husband moved with Massey to a ranch near Canton, Texas. I grew up on a ranch and was a pretty normal kid. I never had drug or alcohol issues. After trying college, and it didnt work out for me, I joined the service. Serving 12 years of active duty, nine of those in the Marines, Massey experienced a world he never had been introduced. I had several significant combat incidents while I was in (the service). A few years ago, when I was in an operation in North Africa, I had a flashback, Massey said. Its just a really nice, neat way to say psychotic break. I can nearly tell you the day and almost the time that my entire life changed. At that moment something broke in my head, and my brain chemistry changed and nothing has been the same. Although the incidents Massey encountered while serving in the military altered his state of mind, he noted the difficulty of pinpointing exactly what event altered his brains chemistry. It was probably the stress of things (in the Marines) and not even the combat. One of the incidents that troubles me the most was probably the least violent. People are hardwired differently. You never know whats going to affect one person over the other. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I never had any mental health problems before. I was just falling apart. Massey began seeing a psychologist who specialized in PTSD and would ultimately diagnose him. After returning to the United States, his condition showed no sign of improving. I got so profoundly depressed I was almost catatonic. They tried the traditional medications on me, and they didnt work. As a last-ditch effort, they put me through ECT (Electric Convulsive Therapy). Electric shock therapy is what it is. Its not at all what the movies portrayed. You dont twitch or flinch. Shortly after ECT, he began to respond to medications, allowing them to put him on mood stabilizers. It elevated my mood enough where I came up out of the depression long enough that I was able to respond to cognitive therapy, he said. That is where the long road started. Coming to terms with his altered state of mind was Masseys first fight. Even as sick as I was, I remember walking in the first time I had an appointment with the psychologist. There was a sign-in log, and I sat there and could not write my name, because the minute I put my name down and signed in to be seen, I was admitting I was crazy. The other big turning point for me was when they handed me pills, he said. The stigma itself will make you resistant to treatment, and its really difficult to get over that. Massey fought hard against the idea that he needed mental guidance, but his psychologist proved to be even more stubborn. I came in to see my psychologist, and was in a real bad mood. And she said, Im not going to waste your time, and youre not going to waste mine. So Im going to leave you with this. Life is all about choices. You are where you are today because of choices you made. If you dont like where youre at today, make different choices and youll be somewhere different tomorrow. At odds with his condition, and frustrated with the struggle, Massey walked out of her office in a huff. But her words slowly began to instill a sense of hope that Massey had lost long before. After a long night of suicidal thoughts, Massey made a decision in the early morning light to fight. I made up my mind that if she told me to go home and drink Kool-Aid and stand on my head and recite the pledge of the allegiance, I would be a standing-on-my-head, Kool-Aiddrinking, allegiance-reciting individual. I have a very profound thanks for the doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers everyone that does what they do. If it wasnt for them, I would have been dead a long time ago. Life had pitched Massey a severe curve ball, but he soon realized the only person who could help him was himself, so he got to work. Id always wanted to be a Marine. When all of this happened to me, it was humbling. I was going to be a career Marine, and literally in a moment it was all gone, Massey said. Because it was so humbling and life altering, it affected me profoundly. At first, it was just an attempt to get myself well. Next thing you know, Im taking a job (as a peer provider). The truth to getting well is youve got to be willing to put out the effort. If a person is not prepared to do the work, then theyre not ready to get well yet. Massey now has a passion for helping those in the position he found himself in years ago. His experience with psychotic breaks and the bipolar disorder that developed out of his PTSD gives him a strong presence in the treatment of patients. As a peer provider for the local MHMR, Massey helps patients understand what is happening to them and helps them work through their issues a kind of navigator through the process. I have a wide range of symptoms personally. So usually when people come in, I have some idea of what patients are dealing with, and that usually puts them at ease and builds a rapport, Massey said. A big thing was people saw me up and functioning and going to work every day, and a lot of them thought If this guy can do it, I can do it. A severe cut in mental health funds through the Texas Legislature a couple years ago affected mental health services statewide, and local agencies felt the shock waves, Massey said. Mental health needs to happen on a state and community level. If the feds want to funnel some funds, thats great, but no one knows how to take care of us better than we do. Some of these people are so profoundly ill they cant take care of themselves. If we had more people, more funding ... the case loads are incredible, he said. We need more people to go check on these people and make sure theyre on their medications. Incidents of hospitalization would go down. Massey now spends his days in the pursuit of sharing his own experiences and information with any and all who are willing to listen. Whenever I speak to a group I tell them, When you leave here, I really dont care if you remember my name, I just want you to hear the story. Fear oftentimes is just something we dont understand. The more you educate people and they understand what theyre dealing with, its not upsetting anymore. That is my mission, to try to educate.

A cold front moving through the Southeast is expected to further impact a blood shortage across the region. Galen Unold, director of donor recruitment and retention with LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, said the cold front and snow will mean blood drives in many affected communities could be canceled. This is coming at a time when supplies were already low because of reduced donations during the winter holidays, Unold said. Meanwhile, blood usage at many of our hospitals is far above normal, making the shortage even more serious. Unold said all blood types are needed, but blood types AB-positive and -negative and O-negative are in shortest supply. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. For information about donating, donors can call LifeSouth toll-free at 888-795-2707 or go to www.lifesouth.org. HPH Hospice, Healing Peoples Hearts in partnership with the Alzheimers Association of Florida, Gulf coast Chapter, is offering two free seminars for caregivers of Alzheimers and dementia patients. Both seminars will be provided by Jerry Fisher, MSW, program specialist for the Alzheimers Association On Feb. 12 from 2 to 3 p.m., the topic will be Changes in Communications. Alzheimers disease and related dementia can gradually diminish a persons ability to communicate. Not only do people with dementia have more difficulty expressing thoughts and emotions, they also have more trouble understanding others. Fisher will provide information on the best possible ways to improve communication. On Feb. 19 from 2 to 3 p.m., the topic will be Dealing with Difficult Behaviors. Fisher will discuss how Alzheimers and related dementia patients can become anxious or aggressive and sometimes misinterpret what they hear. He will share ways to identify those behaviors and explore possible solutions. Space is limited and reservations are required. The free seminars will be at HPHs Team office at 3545. N.

Call Jeff Haight, R.N., group facilitator, at 352688-7744. Q : I heard the FDA is warning people about using a drug to help them sleep. What can you tell me about this? A: On Jan. 10, the FDA notified the public of new information about zolpidem, a widely prescribed insomnia drug. FDA recommends the bedtime dose be lowered, because new data show blood levels in some patients may be high enough the morning after use to impair activities that require alertness, including driving. The announcement focuses on zolpidem products approved for bedtime use, which are marketed as generics and under the brand names Ambien, Ambien CR, Edluar and Zolpimist. The FDA is also reminding the public all drugs taken for insomnia can impair driving and activities that require alertness the morning after use. Drowsiness is already listed as a common side effect in the drug labels of all insomnia drugs, along with warnings that patients may still feel drowsy the day after taking these products. Patients who take insomnia drugs can experience impairment of mental alertness the morning after use, even if they feel fully awake. The FDA urges health care professionals to caution all patients (men and women) who use these zolpidem products about the risks of next-morning impairment for activities that require complete mental alertness, including driving. For zolpidem products, data show the risk for next-morning impairment is highest for patients taking the extended-release forms of these drugs (Ambien CR and generics). Women appear to be more susceptible to this risk, because they eliminate zolpidem from their bodies more slowly than men. Because use of lower doses of zolpidem will result in lower blood levels in the morning, the FDA is requiring the manufacturers of Ambien, Ambien CR, Edluar and Zolpimist to lower the recommended dose. The FDA has informed the manufacturers that the recommended dose of zolpidem for women should be lowered from 10 mg to 5 mg for immediate-release products (Ambien, Edluar and Zolpimist) and from 12.5 mg to 6.25 mg for extended-release products (Ambien CR). The FDA also informed the manufacturers that, for men, the labeling should recommend health care professionals consider prescribing the lower doses 5 mg for immediate-release products and 6.25 mg for extended-release products. The recommended doses of Intermezzo, a lower-dose zolpidem product approved for middle-ofthe-night awakenings, are not changing. The FDA is continuing to evaluate the risk of impaired mental alertness with other insomnia drugs, including over-thecounter (OTC) drugs available without a prescription. To decrease the potential risk of impairment with all insomnia drugs, health care professionals should prescribe, and patients should take, the lowest dose capable of treating the patients insomnia. Patients who drive or whose activities require full alertness the morning after use of an insomnia drug should discuss the appropriateness of their medicine with their health care professional. If you are currently taking the 10 mg or 12.5 mg dose of zolpidem-containing insomnia medicine, continue taking your prescribed dose as directed until you have contacted your health care professional to ask for instructions on how to safely continue to take your medicine. Each patient and situation is unique, and the appropriate dose should be discussed with your health care professional. Richard P Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Those medical privacy rules you run into at hospitals, pharmacies and in your own doctors office are getting an update. Regulations unveiled last week by the Obama administration create new information rights that should make life easier for consumers. They also tighten restrictions on medical service providers trying to use patient information for marketing, and they greatly expand the list of businesses that can be punished for unauthorized disclosures. The government has taken pretty dramatic steps to strengthen privacy protections that previously existed for consumers, said Dianne Bourque, a Boston lawyer specializing in medical regulation. The longawaited rules carry out a 2009 law promoting electronic medical records and updating federal privacy protections. On the privacy front, doctors will now have to get prior approval from patients to pitch new medications or medical devices if those pitches are being paid for by a drug company or manufacturer. For example, sometimes a pharmaceutical company will pay doctors to send all their heart patients a letter about a new medication. It may not be readily apparent to the patient that the drug company is compensating the doctor for sending the update. The rules also create new rights for consumers. For instance, you should find it much easier to get your medical records electronically instead of on paper. Up to now, some doctors and hospitals have been able to avoid providing records electronically by saying they dont have the capability. They wont be able to default to, Sorry, we cant send this to your home (computer) system; we have to give you a paper copy, said Susan McAndrew, a government lawyer who oversaw the regulations at the Health and Human Services Department. Another welcome change: with your permission, your doctor can share your childrens immunization records directly with a school. That simple tweak to existing rules will save parents from having to shuttle forms back and forth. And, if you pay cash for a medical service, you can tell the doctor not to share information with your insurer. The sensitivity sometimes arises with people paying out-of-pocket for mental health counseling, McAndrew said. The onus of complying with the new rules will fall mainly on the health care industry and contractors. One of the most notable changes is that companies that provide support services to doctors and hospitals will now face steep penalties for unauthorized disclosures of patient information. The compliance bar for folks who work with health care providers is much higher now, said Bourque. The rules take effect at the end of September, after a period for health care service providers to learn the new requirements. The original federal privacy law, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, known as HIPAA, dates back to 1996. or input you might have regarding this issue. A: This is a great question. The first thing that comes to mind when someone says discolored gums, localized to one area, is what is called an amalgam tattoo. Amalgam is commonly referred to as a silver filling. It is the most common filing material used in the mouth. On occasion, some of the amalgam fillings enter the area between the tooth and the gums and can cause this discoloration, or tattoo, over time. I have also seen it happen when a tooth is removed at the same appointment as a filling is placed. If the amalgam finds its way into the extraction socket, it can cause a discoloration, or tattoo, over time. I doubt this is the scenario with you because it is unusual to use a silver filling in one of the front teeth. You mentioned there was a post and it might be coming through the tooth. Was this ever mentioned to you? If so, it is a good possibility it is causing the discoloration. My only concern is if it were coming through the tooth, you would likely know about it through some sort of symptom. One way to figure this out is to take a series of Xrays at different angles. If this were inconclusive, you could have a 3-D scan of the area done that will alert you to this immediately. Another thought is how far below the gum did the tooth break before the crown was put on? If it was quite far, per a dentists judgment, your tissue might be having a response to the metal in the crown. If this were the case, removal of the crown would prevent any further staining, but the stain that is there will remain. Undoubtedly, you want to know what to do about the discoloration. Assuming the source of the stain is figured out and eliminated, I feel a gum graft done by a very competent periodontist would make the most sense. They should be able to remove the stained tissue and replace it with tissue from elsewhere in your mouth. The contour of this tissue is difficult to make perfect even in the best of hands. My suggestion to you would be to know that something can be done to make things look better, but be prepared to do some additional work for an ideal outcome. Things like remaking the existing crown can be expected. Recontouring of the graft tissue, as well as surrounding area, might be needed as well. Depending on the condition of the adjacent teeth some work might be needed on them as well. This is a tough situation; however, when approached properly from the start, I am certain you will experience an improvement. Start by talking to your dentist about it. If for any reason you do not have the confidence in him or her after the conversation, do yourself a big favor and search until you find someone who you can have 100 percent confidence in. Good luck and thanks for the question. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S. Suncoast Blvd., Homosassa, FL 34446 or email info@Masterpiece DentalStudio.com. VASCIMINIContinued from Page C1 Believe it or not, there are millions of people in the United States who have this affliction, and basically it is a problem with the inner ear, as well as the brain centers that process that information and allows us to hear without problems in normal situations. The mechanism of the disease is not well understood, but there is a feeling that there is a dampening device that normally works in the ear that will allow someone to ignore other noises and not be uncomfortable, and allow oneself to focus on the task at hand. When this disease occurs, the brain centers alter the sound processing signal, and make it much louder than it normally is, thus causing the problem. To make matters worse, people who have hyperacusis also have a hearing loss, which is a double whammy. In the past few years, another problem causing this type of sensitivity has been discovered, and is better understood, and it is called superior canal dehiscent syndrome. In sports news, there have been a couple of articles about a sports broadcaster who suffered with this problem, and it interfered with his daily work. Imagine being in a stadium with screaming fans, how uncomfortable it was for him. He had some surgery recently, and we will see in the next few months if that helps him. In the typical case of hyperacusis, a cure it is not really a goal, but treatment, and reducing anxiety and fears, as well as simply using some ear plugs to muffle sounds sometimes is adequate. The audiologist who is a specialist in hearing problems and works closely with ear, nose and throat doctors also can do retraining therapy to try to downplay the effects of this loud noise. Everything from meditation, use of herbs, and even medications used for seizure activity, anxiety and depression have been tried to conquer this problem. Much more research and understanding is needed to control this problem that we think affects somewhere between 15 million and 20 million Americans. If you are interested in any further information in regards to this particular problem, there are a couple of associations that might be helpful and are accessible online. This includes The American Hyperacusis Association and The American Tinnitus Association. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

She was referred to her surgeon, who removed the remaining left breast. She has almost a half an inch cancer in her breast, which fortunately has not spread to any lymph nodes. Recently, the first study of its kind was presented at the 35th annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS). The study was comprised of 162 patients who had local breast cancer recurrence many years after original diagnosis, just like in my patients. They randomized patients to either give chemotherapy or not. The treatment was given for three to six months. The choice of chemo therapy depended on what the patient received at the time of their original diagnosis and it was selected by the patients oncologist. My patient received Adriamycin chemotherapy 12 years ago, and so I would not like to give her the same chemotherapy again due to the risk of side effects on her heart. The study showed significant benefit for patients who received chemotherapy. There was an absolute difference of 12 percent in the five-year disease-free survival rate between the chemotherapy group and the no-chemotherapy group (69 percent vs. 57 percent). Disease-free survival means cancer did not come back at all. There was also an absolute difference of 12 percent in the five-year overall survival rate between the chemotherapy group and the no-chemotherapy group (88 percent vs. 76 percent). Overall survival means the patient is alive irrespective of cancer recurrence. This is always higher than disease-free survival because even if cancer recurs, many women can live with treatment for many more years. This is very significant benefit. Patients with an isolated local and/or regional recurrence of breast cancer have a poor prognosis and are at high risk for developing metastases in other areas of the body. Once cancer progresses to distant organs like the lung, liver, bone, etc., it becomes incurable. At that time, treatment is only palliative. Our goal in my patient is curative. I have recommended her chemotherapy and she is going to start it very soon. I am really optimistic that my patient will be cured from her cancer. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHI Continued from Page C1 This study was recently published online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society. As an oncologist, I have known for years that smoking is one of the most common causes of bladder cancer, and I have written about this in the past. But now, startling data is available regarding a link to smoking and how the disease progresses. In this study, researchers at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California analyzed bladder tumors and smoking history in 212 patients recruited through the Los Angeles County Cancer Surveillance Program between 1987 and 1996. Researchers found that the bladder cancers that developed in individuals who smoked intensely were more likely to be deadly than bladder cancers that developed in those who never smoked, or who smoked less. The study also revealed that changes in particular proteins are often present in bladder cancers that have become deadly. This finding of nine molecular markers that can predict bladder cancer prognosis may assist in designing treatment plans in the future. Patients with abnormalities in six to nine markers had a very poor outcome, raising the possibility that these individuals could have benefited from more aggressive treatments. Because the number of changes in these proteins was directly proportional to patients health outcomes, the findings confirm the theory that an accumulation of changes is more important than individual changes in determining the characteristics of a given cancer. The link between smoking intensity and prognosis found in this study points to the incrementally harmful effects of smoking. Yes, the more you smoke, the worse your cancer may be, even more reason for all smokers to quit. Dr. C.

The new language has been enacted in nine states, including Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas. But Kansas law, enacted in 1994, was based on the earlier model. Kansas isnt alone in grappling with assisted reproduction issues. In Indiana, an appeals court ruled last week that a man who divorced his wife must pay child support for their son and daughter, even though the children were conceived by artificial insemination using sperm donated by another man. Still another case in Indiana involved a man who was ordered in 2010 to pay child support for only one of the two children resulting from his sperm donations. The only way to avoid these situations is to change the law to catch up with the technology and what people are actually doing in assisted reproduction, Snyder said. Sperm donation and parental rights may sound like a relatively niche sector in the legal arena, but updating laws has been a challenge, and some like the rules just the way they are. Kansas state Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce, a conservative Republican, said he doubts legislators will or should consider making changes. It tells everybody dont do stupid things on Craigslist. Its kind of common sense, he said. If youre going to create another life, even if its a good intention, thats a heck of a responsibility, and its one that precedes any sort of state action. In the 2010 Indiana case, a woman who used a friends sperm to conceive two children sought public assistance after she and her lesbian partner separated. County officials wanted to collect child support from the donor. A state appeals court ultimately ruled that an agreement entered into before the first childs birth freed the donor from financial responsibility for that child. But the donor was found to be financially responsible for the second child, because the agreement didnt cover subsequent children. It is definitely evolving and these kinds of cases are really cutting-edge, said Sean Lemieux, an Indianapolis attorney who also represented the sperm donor. It is a risky thing and this is not the place to save your money upfront and get an office form off the Internet. A high-profile California case, meanwhile, shows the consequences of going without a contract. Texas bodybuilder Ronnie Coleman, who donated sperm for his ex-girlfriends artificial insemination, paid thousands of dollars in child support each month for nearly four years for two children until an appeals court ruled in March that he could stop. Peter A. Lauzon, the Los Angeles attorney who represented the eight-time Mr. Olympia, said the legal issues surrounding artificial insemination create a chilling effect. Who is going to want to donate sperm? he asked. No one. Mikki Morrissette, a mother of two who didnt use a doctor for her artificial inseminations, once found herself asked to identify her sperm donor while seeking statesubsidized health insurance in Minnesota after moving there from New York City. She refused and was denied. I know a lot of other women around the country who have used a known donor who have run into similar problems, said Morrissette, who was written five books, including Choosing Single Motherhood: The Thinking Womans Guide. She said the same request isnt made of adoptive parents or when an anonymous donor is used: Its not fair.H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, J ANUARY22, 2013 C5 000DPI3 4805 S.

The question is: Who had the most fun, the cast or the audience? With the plays premise that nuns just want to have fun, the answer is probably a toss up! Written by Dan Goggin, directed by Sharon Harris with musical direction by Brady Lay and the accompaniment of Vee Balemian, the choreography was by Shalyn Barker, owner of Victorias School of the Dance. Howling laughter permeated the theater throughout the play. Outrageous dialogue was delivered with spirited enthusiasm by the sisters, one and all. It was an astounding showcase of talent. Unrestrained frivolity reigned in scene after scene. The sisters entered the theater from the rear, prancing briskly down the aisles headed for the stage. From that point on, they proved, once more, that local talent is alive and well, orchestrated by the all-volunteer troupe of players who entertain us season after season. Sharon Vetter, as Sister Robert Anne, will be remembered for her roles in The Sound of Music, Mame and The King and I. Chris Venable, as the Rev. Mother Regina, was a standout performer in Move Over Mrs. Markham and as a convincing villain in Kind Lady. Her dynamic portrayal as the leader of the sisters pack rates four stars! Sandy Mosley played Sister Mary Hubert. A versatile volunteer at the Art Center, she is an accomplished musical director as well as a talented performer. Ashlyn Gibbs was Sister Mary Amnesia, and what a voice. Ever forgetful and shy until she began to sing, she wowed the audience with her considerable range. Her skill as a ventriloquist was a surprising revelation for her fans. A recent venture for Gibbs further enhanced her versatility, as director of Mark Twain, the youth play. This lead singer for So Divine, a local female group, also shines in the Citrus Community Concert Choir and the choir at Crystal River First Presbyterian. It was quite a windfall to have Shalyn Barker join the troupe of players for this most adventuresome musical of challenging proportions. Her contribution to the production was invaluable. As Sister Mary Leo, we heartily applaud her generous, creative involvement. Mary Ellen Craver, who played Sister Mary Thomas in her debut with the Art Center, also enjoys singing at adult-living facilities. An accomplished dancer as well, welcome aboard! Stacey Griffis portrayed Sister Mary Eugene. Ever the sunshine over any cast, Griffis, an accomplished costumer and performer, has starred in numerous plays, the most memorable being My Fair Lady, The Music Man and The King and I. Ashley Griffis, who played Sister Mary Cardelia, has thoroughly embraced the high adventure that awaits those who experience theater at its finest at the Art Center. Emily Mosley, who portrayed Sister Mary Richard, is a Lecanto High School student who is actively involved in theater, having appeared in Mame and The Wizard of Oz. She represented Citrus County on flute at the Festival of the Winds at Tampa USF. The Little Sisters of Hoboken took us out of the realm of convent prayer and solitude life into the reality of the human condition that evokes fun and laughter. They shared the humor. Some of the scenarios were unforgettable. They include: The Rockette-style precision high kicks. Insightful mentoring lines: Dont direct the spotlight. Let the spotlight come to you. The loudest drummer doesnt always lead the band. The Shuffle Off to Buffalo tapdancing nuns. The Rev. Mother donning a Carmen Miranda hat. The audience participation quiz for a prayer card prize: Why did the priest giggle? Answer: It was a case of Mass hysteria. What is a nun that walks in her sleep? Answer: A Roman Catholic. Four nuns exiting the stage penguin style. The hilarious baking scene from the nuns cookbook recipe of Mary Magdalene tarts. The I want to be a country music star scene and go to Nashville to sing like Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Brenda Lee. The cast formed a picture-perfect chorus line to close out a fabulous evenings entertainment with a parting thought to the audience: Everyone here tonight has the potential to be a saint.

Lao-tzu, a Chinese philosopher who died in 531 B.C., said, When the highest type of men hear Tao, they diligently practice it. When the average type of men hear Tao, they half believe in it. When the lowest type of men hear Tao, they laugh heartily at it. Without the laugh, there is no Tao. This week we are looking at the defensive principle that if you lead a low card from length, you guarantee at least one honor in that suit. With a weak suit, you lead an unnecessarily high card. This is no laughing matter, but there is one situation when the rule should be ignored when you are leading partners suit and you have not supported that suit. Then, giving length information is (usually) more important than strength information. This deal is a textbook example. North passes as dealer, East opens one heart, and South leaps majestically to four spades. If West leads the heart seven (top of nothing), East will think it is a singleton or high from a doubleton. He will win the first trick with the heart nine (low from touching cards when playing third hand high), take the heart ace, and try to cash the heart king. But South will ruff and run all of his trumps. There is no minor-suit squeeze, but declarer takes eight spades and two clubs. Instead, West should lead the heart two, low from length in partners unsupported suit. Then East, after taking two tricks in the suit, will know that West has the one extant heart. East will shift to the diamond two (low from an honor) and the defenders will take two tricks in that suit for down one.

On occasion, they have asked to bring their current boyfriend or girlfriend home for a visit to meet the family. The friend then stays in a separate room for a night or two. The problem is my husband. He gets extremely upset about these visits and accuses me of encouraging immoral behavior. He says that allowing these friends to stay at our house gives tacit approval for them to spend the night away from home. I say it is normal hospitality to open our home to our kids friends. Is he being irrational, or am I missing something? Conflicted Mother Dear Conflicted: There is absolutely nothing wrong with a child spending the night away from home, and certainly not a 20-something adult. Your husband apparently is convinced that the kids are sneaking around and getting into bed together when you are asleep. But that is ungenerous of him. These friends are guests in your home and should be treated as such. And your husband might keep in mind that should these friends turn out to be his future sonsin-law or daughters-in-law, reacting poorly to them now could set him up for future difficulties. Dear Annie : May I vent a little about the extended family of a caregiver? My relatives live out of state and rarely visit. This is for them: Please dont tell the primary caregiver what to do and how to do it. You dont have all the details, and you do not control every situation. Good caregivers are proactive and vigilant. You are loved, and your opinion matters. But unless you are a medical expert in these areas, please listen rather than resort to preconceived ideas. When you do visit, dont say, I guess you get the day off. There is never a day off, especially if the loved one is in the hospital or rehab and preparations need to be made for what happens after they are discharged. And while you may think its too early to discuss assisted living or nursing home care, some of those places have waiting lists. Its never too early. You may want to have a light, enjoyable visit, but some things still need to be handled, even unpleasant things. Life doesnt get put on hold simply because youre in town. If you want to take over the full-time care, you are more than welcome. Otherwise, please respect the primary caregivers role and responsibilities, and keep your interference with the medical providers to a minimum. You have no idea what it is like to have a family plus elderly parents to care for, with all the activities, medical appointments, medications and therapies to coordinate and facilitate. You purposely choose to live states away. Please dont fly in and out telling me what to do. Serving as a primary caregiver is an honor and a privilege. It carries with it a tremendous responsibility, as well as accountability and self-sacrifice. I do it out of love, and I want what is best for them. Walk a Mile in My Shoes Dear Walk : We have heard this plea many times and know you speak for thousands of devoted caregivers. But we also know that many relatives who live away need to feel as if they are contributing and often react by making demands and trying to take over. Sometimes, all they need is a task to perform that will make them feel they are needed in a concrete way. We hope that helps. Dear Annie : Like Heartbroken Mom in Connecticut, I, too, left a controlling husband, and it created conflicts at family gatherings. Our solution was to have two birthday parties. My ex could attend one with whomever he wished, and I attended the other. The grandchildren loved the idea of having two birthday parties. Over time, some of the conflicts lessened, but they never completely stopped. Sometimes they just cant let go.

Aside from her role as wife to her high school sweetheart, Chris, and mother to just-turned4 daughter Blair, the 2002 Crystal River High School graduate is up to her beautifully-arched eyebrows in intrigue, romance, danger and magic. Now living in Virginia Beach, Grillo, who uses her maiden name Robinson as her pen name, is eagerly waiting to receive an advanced copy of her first paranormal romance novel, Escaped. Why paranormal? In a recent telephone interview, Grillo, 28, laughed and then explained. Ive tried to write normal books before, but if it doesnt have the element of something a little bit off, it just doesnt work, she said. The Samantha Scott novels are about witches, but its understated. Cadiza is a real place in the human world, but its concealed by magic. Everything that goes on is hidden from human eyes. Escaped is the first of four Samantha Scott novels to be published by Eternal Press. Even though Escaped isnt due out until Feb. 1, Grillo has already finished writing the second book, and the remaining two are planned out. But she hasnt yet received her advanced writers copy. Its not real until the overnight delivery truck pulls up to your door and hands you a package. Im so excited, she said. She said recently shes been inundated with promotional marketing work. The publisher filmed a trailer interview (watch it online at RachelJRobinson. com) and shes been answering hundreds of interview questions. Writers first book a paranormal romance See BOOK/ Page A2 Study finds 600 openings in countyERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerAre you looking for employment and unable to locate it? Workforce Connection recently released its Jobs Skills Gap Study findings. Approximately 600 jobs are vacant in Citrus County; however, the workforce is not qualified. Organizers of Land that Job deem these statistics transformable. Land that Job is a free employment preparation forum from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. March. 8, at the College of Central Florida, 3800 S. Lecanto Highway, Lecanto. The purpose of the event is to prepare people, encourage them and point them in the right direction, said United Way CEO Amy Meek. We do know there are 600 jobs available in Citrus County. We want to point people in the right direction to find those jobs. Citizens wanting to surpass their competition are encouraged to attend five segments that coach them on how to prepare for an interview, dos and donts of an interview, overcoming barriers and where the jobs are hiding. This gives everyone the opportunity to have a mental checklist before an interview, of everything I was told to do to increase my chances of landing the job, Meek said. The fifth segment is an opportunity for potential employees to engage in a mock interview with a local senior-level executive in the community. These diverse executives will give feedback to the interviewee. I know as a manager, we would interview several different people, Meek said. You hire a person and then send out Aplace exists like your hometown or like mine that can never be seen or visited unless it lets you. Cadiza is set deep in the Iberian Plateau of Portugal, far away from any civilization and inhabited by residents that are unable and unwilling to leave. Unfortunately, Cadiza is still close enough to large cities to prompt temptation in the young, willful hearts of teenagers. Or at least one, Samantha Scott. She is unlike a normal human as are all the residents there. They are Bruxas witches. Powerful ones.

We must act Associated PressWASHINGTON Turning the page on years of war and recession, President Barack Obama summoned a divided nation Monday to act with passion and dedication to broaden equality and prosperity at home, nurture democracy around the world and combat global warming as he embarked on a second term before a vast and cheering crowd that spilled down the historic National Mall. Americas possibilities are limitless, for we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands, the 44th president declared in a second inaugural address that broke new ground by assigning gay rights a prominent place in the wider struggle for equality for all. In a unity plea to politicians and the nation at large, he called for collective action to confront challenges and said, Progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time but it does require us to act in our time. Elected four years ago as Americas first black president, Obama spoke from specially constructed flagbedecked stands outside the Capitol after reciting the oath of office that all presidents have uttered since the nations founding. The events highlighted a day replete with all the fanfare that a security-minded capital could muster from white-gloved Marine trumpeters who heralded the arrival of dignitaries on the inaugural stands to the midwinter orange flowers that graced the tables at a traditional lunch with lawmakers inside the Capitol. The weather was relatively warm, in the mid-40s, and while the crowd was not as large as on Inauguration Day four years ago, it was estimated at up to 1 million. Big enough that Obama turned around as he was leaving the inaugural stands to savor the view one final time. Im not going to see this again, said the man whose political career has been meteoric from the Illinois Legislature to the U.S. Senate and the White House before marking his 48th birthday. On a day of renewal for democracy, everyone seemed to have an opinion, and many seemed eager to share it. Im just thankful that weve got another four years of democracy that everyone can grow in, said Wilbur Cole, 52, a postman from suburban Memphis, Tenn., who spent part of the day visiting the civil rights museum there at the site where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968. The inauguration this year shared the day with Kings birthday holiday, and the president used a Bible that had Obama sworn in for second term, calls for passion and dedication Associated PressPresident Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama walk in the Inaugural Parade Monday during the 57th Presidential Inauguration in Washington. NANCYBENAC Associated PressWASHINGTON Lets hear it for the do-over. Inaugurations are always moments of great ceremony and pageantry. But, hey, everybody can rel-a-a-a-ax a little the second time around. After the electric moment of President Barack Obamas first swearing-in, the second inaugural was just so much more ... comfortable. (Really, Monday was a doover of the do-over. The actual swearing-in took place a day earlier in a private ceremony at the White House.) Yup, that was the president chomping on gum Nicorette, perhaps as he watched the inaugural parade, while his wife and daughters rocked out in their seats in the reviewing stands. And, yup, there were Sasha and Malia casually chatting with their cousins on the inaugural platform earlier in the day, completely uncowed by the millions watching their every move via Jumbotron and television. Obama seemed so at eeeeeease. See OBAMA/ Page A2 See SCENE/ Page A5 Inaugural do-over: savoring the view Associated PressPresident Barack Obama takes the oath of office Monday.

belonged to the civil rights leader for the swearing-in, along with a second one that been Abraham Lincolns. The president also paused inside the Capitol Rotunda to gaze at a dark bronze statue of King. Others watching at a distance were less upbeat than Cole. Frank Pinto, 62, and an unemployed construction contractor, took in the inaugural events on television at a bar in Hartford, Conn. He said because of the presidents policies, My grandkids will be in debt and their kids will be in debt. The tone was less overtly political in the nations capital, where bipartisanship was on the menu in the speechmaking and at the congressional lunch. Congratulations and Godspeed, House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, said to Obama and Vice President Joe Biden as he presented them with flags that had flown atop the Capitol. Outside, the Inaugural Parade took shape, a reflection of American musicality and diversity that featured military units, bands, floats, the Chinese American Community Center Folk Dance Troupe from Hockessin, Del., and the Isiserettes Drill & Drum Corps from Des Moines, Iowa. The crowds were several rows deep along parts of the route, and security was intense. More than a dozen vehicles flanked the presidents limousine as it rolled down Pennsylvania Avenue, and several agents walked alongside on foot. As recent predecessors have, the president emerged from his car and walked several blocks on foot. His wife, Michelle, was with him, and the two held hands while acknowledging the cheers from well-wishers during two separate strolls along the route. A short time later, accompanied by their children and the vice president and his family, the first couple settled in to view the parade from a reviewing stand built in front of the White House. A pair of nighttime inaugural balls completed the official proceedings, with a guest line running into the tens of thousands. In his brief, 18-minute speech, Obama did not dwell on the most pressing challenges of the past four years. He barely mentioned the struggle to reduce the federal deficit, a fight that has occupied much of his and Congress time and promises the same in months to come. He spoke up for the poor Our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it and for those on the next-higher rung We believe that Americas prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. The second reference echoed his calls from the presidential campaign that catapulted him to re-election A decade of war is now ending. An economic recovery has begun, said the president who presided over the end to the U.S. combat role in Iraq, set a timetable for doing the same in Afghanistan and took office when the worst recession in decades was still deepening. We will support democracy from Asia to Africa, from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom, he said in a relatively brief reference to foreign policy.

What would you do with 1 million ping pong balls? Im thinking a lot of spray paint. Which do you find more embarrassing to write, violence or sex? Grillo said thats been a huge topic for conversation in her family what will Grandma think? This is a romance novel, and theres romance involved, she said. But its tame. On a scale of one to five, with one being nothing (graphic) and five being Fifty Shades of Grey, my books a two, so I think Grandma will be OK. Grillo said she has thoroughly enjoyed the writing process and calls herself a burst writer. She walks around with ideas simmering and when the muse hits she writes like a crazy person until she gets it all out. Ive always been a writer, she said. As a child I was the introverted, quiet one. Id create these little books and do the illustrations and staple them together. In fact, my mom just sent me some of them that she saved. But I really love writing. Its solitary, youre alone with your thoughts, she said. The hardest part has been letting other people see my work, because then its not just mine any more.

They will have pointers to encourage them in the right direction and give them a better chance at landing the job. Organizers are also arranging for thrift stores to exhibit examples of lowcost business attire. They can show people that there are really nice outfits for $25, Meek said.

The Naples Daily News reported Alvaro Francisco was arrested Sunday after the repeated calls to 911. He faces a misdemeanor charge of misusing the 911 system. The Collier County Sheriffs Office said Francisco began making calls at 8:16 p.m. Saturday and continued until 12:45 a.m. Sunday. Each time he asked for either a ride to Mexico or the homes of his boss and friends. Dispatchers told Francisco his calls were not an emergency and he should not call 911 for such requests. From wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe citizens panel that hears land-use requests decided by a 43 vote last week that a Homosassabased fraternal organization should not develop a recreational vehicle campsite for its members. After its decision on Thursday, the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC), whose appointed members are Citrus County residents, will recommend the request be denied when it goes before the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Paul Furman, of Furman & Hilpert Engineering in Inverness, represented the applicant, the Crystal River Eagles Aerie 4272. He said the lodge would like to add RV camping to its facility at 5340 W. Grover Cleveland Blvd. Many fraternal organizations, such as the Eagles, Moose and Elks, offer low-cost RV camping for members, Furman said. The 9.8-acre site would need a land-use change from medium density residential district to recreational vehicle park district to build the campsite. County planning staff also brought up three issues with code standards that Furman addressed. Two of the three posed little difficulty. The 9.8-acres site was acceptable even though code standards call for 10 acres. Building a bathroom, as called for by code, could be unnecessary if all RVs that would use the site had their own bathrooms. However, the plan called for constructing more buildings that would exceed total maximum square footage, a situation questioned by Commissioner Dwight Hooper. Were they planning on expanding regardless of the RV site? Hooper asked. Is this two projects in one? The new building would come first and the RV sites later, Furman answered. Steve McColgan, Eagles president, said the fraternal organization needed more space for seating its members. He said the club currently has 471 members and almost 300 in the auxiliary. The current capacity in the meeting room is 44 people and 60 in the bar-social area. The RV park will be open only to members and not to the public, McColgan said. However, two neighbors, Richard and Patricia Cummings, told the commission the club was loud at night when its members left to go home. Motorcycles are revving up at nighttime and going in and out, Patricia Cummings said. She said she would be disturbed by an RV park where people could go in and out all night long. Commissioner Joe Chrietzberg asked if the Cummingses lived there before the Eagles club was started. Patricia Cummings replied they did. Richard Cummings said club members cut through his property with four-wheelers. He said he did not want to encourage more people roaming around with the RV park. Commissioner Ronald Lundberg asked staff if fencing and sound barriers could be required. Commissioner William Garvin said the area was supposed to be rural residential. Having gained a conditional use for the fraternal organization, the applicant was trying to move to a new designation, Garvin said. I dont think an RV park is a good fit for medium-density and rural residential areas, Garvin said. Im not going to be in favor of it myself. After the decision, McColgan told the Chroniclethe Eagles is a social club, not a motorcycle club, and that no one has ever complained about noise to the sheriffs office. The request will be presented at a future BOCC meeting.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Panel: Thumbs down to RV park Issue now heads to county commission Special to the ChronicleCitrus County does not have a League of Women Voters, and has not had a chapter for many years. Nature Coast Unitarian Universalists have invited Allie Gore, of the Marion County League of Women Voters, to advise how a Citrus County contingent might join up with it, or form a local branch. The event is at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 7633 N. Florida Ave, (U.S. 41), Citrus Springs. Gore is a longtime educator who was instrumental in reactivating the Marion County league and she is willing to help Citrus County to do the same. She will show a short video on the history of the struggle for equal suffrage, which will be followed by a PowerPoint presentation and discussion of the league today. As a strictly nonpartisan organization, the league does not support or oppose candidates. It does, however,take stands on issues after coming to a consensus and works to increase public understanding of policy issues through education. The League of Women Voters a grassroots organization with chapters in all 50 states was founded 92 years ago and has been open to men for 40 years. All interested persons are invited. For information, call 352-465-4225 or visit nature coastuu.org. Unitarians invite League of Women Voters speaker Special to the ChronicleThe Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County has received a Department of Juvenile Justice grant that will directly help members grow into responsible, productive adults. The Department of Juvenile Justice grant, Street Smart, is for $22,970.05. Street Smart is a new grant funded by the Allstate Foundation through Boys & Girls Clubs of America. It focuses on adolescents, concerning the destructive lifestyles of gangs, avoiding conflict and developing resistance skills, and recognizing and valuing the differences in others. The grant addresses the statistic that youths ages 12 to 17 years are almost three times more likely to be victims of violent crimes. The grant curriculum involves awareness and prevention of gangs, conflict resolution, peer leadership training, and learning to accept and value of differences in people. The clubs also received a grant from the Florida Department of Education to help members grow into good students and lifelong learners. The Department of Education grant, Project Learn, is $24,706.97. Project Learn is a continuing grant and promotes good school habits for completion of school assignments, making good grades and regular school attendance, thereby encouraging graduation. The clubs document Project Learn goals by reviewing club members grades, attendance records and test scores. Members are expected to maintain passing grades or to improve grades and to achieve grade-level percentages or higher on the FCAT. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County are funded by grants such as this one, by Kids Central Inc., by the United Way of Citrus County and by donations and fundraising events. Local Boys & Girls Clubs receive grants Funds will go to youth education projects CHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe dream of a Baptist minister who was assassinated 44 years ago was unfolded by Citrus Countys two cities Inverness and Crystal River on Monday to commemorate his role in advancing civil rights. Both cities hosted events with good responses to commemorate the life and work of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., a leader and visionary in changing the national conscience. After a prayer from Pastor Kennie Berger of Northridge Church, Inverness, about 40 people set off at 8:30 a.m. for the Unity Walk along Martin Luther King Drive in Inverness to Liberty Park, where several people spoke before the 9/11 memorial to an additional 20 people who joined the event. Today, we honor Martin Luther King because of how he handled it, what he accomplished, how he has brought us as far as we are today, with today the second inauguration of the President of the United States being an African American, said Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted. Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said segregation was a hard subject to comprehend. I want everyone here today to look at this city, DiGiovanni said. Look at Inverness. We, right now, are dealing with a building called the Valerie Theater. Its a challenge. We didnt buy an asset. In that theater is whats called the balcony. That balcony wasnt built for more seating. That was built to promote segregation here in this community. Look how far weve come. Although his children do not see peoples color as it used to be stigmatized, DiGiovanni said, Were not finished. Laurie Dunston spoke about Kings accomplishments. You can call him by his initials, and people know of whom you are speaking, Dunston said. How great is a mans accomplishments that he would be the only person to be honored with a memorial in our nations capital who did not serve as president of the United States? Randolph Bellamy, a retired Inverness Middle School teacher and the son of the late Rev. Leroy Bellamy, who led Grace Temple Church of the Living God for more than 50 years, urged parents, ministers and officials to get behind the younger generation to make the world a better place. Bruce Bellamy, also the Rev. Bellamys son, gave a spirited recitation of Kings I Have a Dream speech that commanded rapt attention. He then drove across the county to recite the speech again at the 2013 Crystal River Martin Luther King Jr. Parade and picnic. Crystal Rivers parade started at about 10 a.m. on Seventh Avenue and turned east along State Road 44 before circling back through 12th Avenue to Copeland Park. It was presented by the MLK Jr. Commemoration Parade Committee and the George Washington Carver Community Center. This year, the parade was bigger and had more spectators coming out to see it. Fire trucks, police cars, churches, schools, military and civic groups, and convertibles filled with pageant winners celebrated Kings legacy. The parade stopped at Copeland Park for a daylong picnic and community outreach event. Honoring the dream Events in Inverness, Crystal River mark legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. CHRIS VAN ORMER/ChronicleBernice Knight and Deborah McKinnon Johnson lead the 2013 Crystal River Martin Luther King Jr. Parade on Monday.

Parading for Martin Luther King Jr. Nations first gay mayor featured in documentary The Miami HeraldKEY WEST Almost 30 years ago, Ohio transplant and art gallery owner Richard Heyman won a bitter race against a native son to become mayor of Key West, then a crumbling Navy town trying to reinvent itself as an island paradise for tourists. Heymans victory made international news. He was Americas first openly gay mayor. Now, its so what? said writer June Keith, who was Heymans secretary. But believe me, back then it was huge. Emmy-award winning director John Mikytuck tackles the story of Heyman the fascinating, complex and forgotten gay icon who died of AIDS-related pneumonia in his documentary, The Newcomer. It premieres on broadcast TV at 9 p.m. Monday on WPBT2. Its a timeless tale, Mikytuck said during a phone interview from his home in Lambertville, N.J. And AIDS is still an issue, too. The project was quite the undertaking for Mikytuck, a self-taught cameraman and video editor who went to graduate journalism school at Columbia University to hone his story-telling skills. Mikytuck, who won an Emmy in 2008 for his web TV show Reporting AIDS, did not set out to do a documentary on Heyman. He had planned to tell the story of how the deadly disease affected Key West through his own experience of working for the nonprofit organization AIDS Help while living on the island from 2001-2006. But while researching, Mikytuck said, he found Heymans life more compelling and representative of the 1980s, a decade when the gay community was making political progress following the national Anita Bryant-led anti-homosexual crusade only to be slammed again with a mysterious, scary disease that was disproportionately killing gay men at an alarming rate. A first version of the documentary was shown three years ago at gay film festivals in Alabama and Miami. It also ran for a week at the Tropic Cinema in Key West and was shown once at Cornell University, Mikytucks alma mater. He reworked the film for its broadcast premiere. The documentary portrays the six-foot-four Heyman as a charming, savvy, well-dressed and successful businessman who had been valedictorian of his high school class, went to Ohio State University on basketball and scholastic scholarships, served in the U.S. Army and opened a chain of hair salons named Sir Richards. After moving to Key West in 1973, he opened Gingerbread Square Gallery on Duval Street. The gay communitys businessmen were revitalizing Key West, and members of its Business Guild saw Heyman as the gregarious person who could lead their efforts in mainstream politics. Heyman was talked into running for public office during a party with cute, thongwearing servers and plenty of alcohol, his campaign manager Peter Ilchuk said in the documentary. In 1979, Heyman was elected city commissioner. In 1983, he made history with his mayoral triumph.

I miss this place, the onetime senator said with a big smile as he greeted congressional leaders upon arriving at the Capitol. The inaugural crowds down considerably from four years ago knew there was no repeating the raw emotion of 2009, and most people didnt demand it. I just feel so proud, said Sharon Davis, of Suitland, Md., who attended both. But the different vibe was palpable. Before, it was just so exciting you could be walking for miles and miles and it didnt even feel like an effort, said Katasha Smart of Randallstown, Md. The sentiment was the same from afar for many. Weve been there, done that in terms of electing the first African-American president, said Beniam Fantu, 34, speaking from Dallas. With the smaller crowds came smaller headaches. Sure, there were still snags at security checkpoints and Metro stops and the like. There was a smattering of protesters, and some glitches with the sound system. But there was no repeat of 2009s Purple Tunnel of Doom, the underpass where throngs of purple ticket-holders famously were stranded for hours. Even the weather cooperated 40 degrees at high noon, up from 28 four years ago. And for all that was notso-new, it was still a moment to savor. And Obama did. As he headed back into the Capitol after the swearing-in, the president pivoted and planted himself to look back at the scene. I want to take a look, one more time, he said. Im not going to see this again. Obama, who wont ever face re-election, felt free to ramp up the inaugural programs celebrity quotient this time. Beyonce sang the national anthem, Kelly Clarkson did My Country, Tis of Thee, James Taylor offered America the Beautiful. Contrast that to four years ago, when the inaugural ceremony included Aretha Franklin but also classical musicians such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Itzhak Perlman and others, and the Hollywood types were largely saved for the evenings balls. Even Michelle Obama seemed more liberated this time, sporting a new haircut with bangs! thats a little less firstlady-ish. Lots of lessons learned were deployed. Chief Justice John Roberts, who administered the oath of office to Obama on both occasions, read from notes this time. In 2009, hed worked from memory and flubbed the wording, requiring a private do-over the next day. This time, the only snag in the oath-taking was a little catch in Obamas voice as he uttered the word states in the phrase president of the United States. Even the parade planners learned a thing or two. They made this years floats shorter, to improve their turning radius and allow them to move along Pennsylvania Avenue at a faster clip. (Even so, Mrs. Obama and the girls had bailed out long before the parade reached its end well after sunset; the president hung in there through the finish.) And about those portable toilets: organizers arranged them in clusters this year rather than long lines, to make it easier to get around them. Some glitches were inevitable. Malfunctioning speakers made it nearly impossible for the flag-waving fans stuck in the overflow section near the Washington Monument to hear what the president was saying. Youre in the IT capital of the world: How can this be so hard? a frustrated Smart demanded. But even there, good will was in evidence. It does take away from the experience, but its so minute, compared to being able to raise the flag for Obama, said Anna Johnson, who came from Decatur, Ga. The party scene for this years inauguration was more muted: Fewer big names. No concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Two official inaugural balls instead of 10. But 40,000 people were ready to cram into the Washington Convention Center for those two balls. And for many, being a part of it all was still hugely important. The fact that the inaugural festivities coincided with the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday sweetened the deal for some. Julie Davis, 69, of suburban Dayton, Ohio, said attending the event reduced her pangs of guilt for not joining Kings 1963 March on Washington, back when she was working in the city as a black, 19-year-old intern. Shes always regretted that she didnt skip an outof-town meeting to attend the march. Every year since that time, whenever I heard of the March on Washington or thought about it or somebody made reference to it, it was almost like a knife cutting me, Davis said. I am very, very, very happy to be here.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JANUARY22, 2013 A5 000DO72 Ocala 11:00 am Wednesday, January 23, 2013 Quality Inn 3434 SW College Rd.

Michael Winner, 77FILMMAKERLONDON Death Wish director Michael Winner, a British filmmaker, restaurant critic and bon vivant, died Monday. He was 77. Winners wife, Geraldine, said he died at his London home after an illness. Winners 30 movies included three Death Wish films starring the late Charles Bronson. Many of his features sit at the schlockier end of the spectrum, but he also worked with Hollywood icons including Marlon Brando, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum and Faye Dunaway. One of his earliest films was the 1962 nudist feature Some Like It Cool; later, he specialized in thrillers and action movies, including The Mechanic, Scorpio and the violent Death Wish series. Winner never took criticism of his films too seriously. If you want art, dont mess about with movies, he once said. Buy a Picasso. Born in London in 1935, Winner was writing a showbiz column for a local newspaper by the time he was 14, and as a student edited the Cambridge University newspaper, Varsity. In later years he was famous for a series of insurance ads with the catchphrase Calm down, dear! He also founded and helped fund a campaign to erect a London memorial to police officers killed in the line of duty. Winner had experienced health problems since 2007.

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2013 Regulate gun magazine capacityIn his letter to the editor, In defense of the NRA (Citrus County Chronicle, Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013), Wayne Sessa is concerned that upcoming federal anti-gun legislation will transgress the Second Amendment. Its what we hear from many impassioned Second Amendment enthusiasts. The Second Amendment states, A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. There it is! We the people have a right to own, bear and shoot guns. The Second Amendment says so, and Sessa and I and the United States Supreme Court stand by it. But heres a curiosity: All 50 states regulate the maximum number of rounds (three to five) that can loaded into shotguns while hunting ducks. Why? To save ducks. Could not our well regulated militia adopt a wee regulation limiting the capacity of assault-gun magazines? You know, to keep us up with the mallards.James McIntosh LecantoHeaded down slippery slopeI feel like I have a ring in my nose and I am being led to a place that I really dont want to go to, the poor house. I am not rich and I am retired, so a lot of the new rulings dont affect me, but I am incensed at the growth and escalating cost of government. Every year, it is more and more of the same. More government, more employees, more rules, laws, more spending, just a whole lot more of the same and I am sick and tired of it. I have worked every day since I graduated from high school until I retired and there has not been one year that I havent paid income taxes. The rich, the top 3 percent of income people, pay 50 percent of the income the IRS receives, is that fair? The bottom 47 percent dont pay anything, is this right? The government has raised the amount of tax that the top 2 percent are going to pay in order to protect the middle class, or the 50 percent between the top 3 and bottom 47 percent. Just who do they think they are kidding? The top 3 percent are going to pay more to support the middle class and the non-payers. But if the middle class thinks that our taxes are not going to go up they are dreaming. And the bottom 47 percent better watch out because their cost of living is going to go up also. It is rather easy to establish an entitlement program or add to it. Just borrow more money. But it is very hard to reduce it or cut it out. We pay our taxes and we also have to pay for the dept so we pay for both sides and the government sits in the middle and just keeps spending more and more and borrows more and more. What a shame it is that we are going down this slippery slope and no one seems to be able to fix the problem.Alfred E Mason Crystal RiverReduce debt through lotteryRepublicans say we have a spending problem. Democrats say we have a revenue problem. So heres an idea. In the future when Congress wants to enact any legislation that has a cost attached, they should also be required to recommend which departmental budget to cut to provide the funds. If they dont want to cut any budgets, then they must agree to borrowing money to pay for the legislation and accept the fact they are willing to increase the debt to pass it. That way we can stop blaming one party or the other for the financial mess were in and also provide transparency in the whole funding process. Another idea whose time has come might just be a monthly national lottery. The winner(s) would split 1/3 of the proceeds while the government would keep 2/3 for the sole purpose of reducing the debt.Evlyn Skurow Crystal River Irecently went to see the movie version of Les Misrables. I was familiar with Victor Hugos classic story but not with the musical, and frankly I didnt care for it. Way too overwrought for my tastes. However, there was a line among the many (many) musical numbers that piqued my interest. It was the anthem of the revolutionaries, and it begins, Do you hear the people sing? Singing a song of angry men? I thought to myself, Now there is a song that captures the spirit of our age. Everywhere I look I seem to be surrounded by angry men and women. You cant turn on the TV or radio or log on to the Internet without getting blasted by the heat of people angry about Barack Obama, John Boehner, the Congress, the economy, taxes, corporate greed, global warming, crime, sexual abuse, animal abuse, underfunded schools, food shortages in Africa, water shortages in Florida and whew. We amuse ourselves with Angry Birds, and even our fast food has a hot emotion Burger King has introduced the Angry Whopper. We have road rage, the rage of mass murderers and just the unfocused anger so famously voiced by unhinged TV newscaster Howard Beale in the 1976 movie Network: Im as mad as hell and Im not going to take this anymore! Beales rant could be the moment when we began the transition from the 20thcentury period that poet W.H. Auden dubbed the Age of Anxiety to what we might call the Age of Anger. (I thought about calling it the Age of Rage, which has a poetic quality, but rage has the connotation of anger that is out of control, and our society hasnt reached that point yet, thank God.) Anger has traditionally been looked down on as an emotion that needs to be controlled. In fact, it was once considered one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Displays of anger were seen as immature, an exercise in self-indulgence. Rather than exercising restraint and selfcontrol, someone who lost his temper was seen as weak and selfish. The writer Frederick Buechner commented about anger that of the Seven Deadly Sins it is possibly the most fun: (T)o smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back in many ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you. We didnt arrive at the Age of Anger overnight. Two or three self-indulgent generations now have been perfectly willing to consume themselves with anger and dont mind taking others along with them. To be sure, there are injustices that make us angry. The poor people and the revolutionaries of mid-19th century France had plenty to be genuinely angry about. But by comparison, the anger of early 21st-century America is one of frustrated expectations and imagined grievances. Indeed, the white middle class that seems to be the source of so much disaffection these days would be the legitimate target of the anger of those upon the barricades of Paris. We need a healthy dose of stoicism these days to give us balance and perspective. Putting a check on anger can not only lead us to see that it is unwarranted, it can save a friendship or a marriage or who knows prevent a war. Something to remember next time youre tempted to sing the song of angry men.Cary McMullen is a journalist and editor who lives in Lakeland. He can be reached at cmcmullen@floridavoices.com.

It began when Commissioner Adams, with obvious irritation, gave a fingerwagging lecture to staff about what he perceived as their lack of compassion for builders and others who have suffered in the current economy. County Manager Brad Thorpe responded by saying he had sat for the past two months and heard himself and his staff repeatedly criticized by Adams, and asked for the conversation to be on more professional grounds. This then led Adams to suggest if Thorpe didnt like the comments being made, maybe he was in the wrong job. At this point, Commission Chair Joe Meek intervened and said the conversation had gone too far and they needed to get back to the issue. Meek was right. This kind of public spectacle does nothing to advance resolution of issues facing the commission and its staff. Commissioner Adams came to the commission promising to make changes, and as an elected official he should try to effect changes he believes will benefit county residents. At the same time, he needs to recognize he is one of five commissioners, and to make policy changes, he must convince at least two other commissioners of the value of the ideas he brings to the table. He also needs to recognize staff works for the commission as a whole, not for individual commissioners, and that professional courtesy goes a long way in smoothing relationships and convincing others to follow his lead. The county commission is facing numerous challenges challenges made more difficult by the Progress Energy tax situation. Working through these will require cooperation and a willingness to explore different options. As a businessman, Adams can and should offer his insight and suggest solutions, but he should also recognize his are not the only ideas, and as a member of a board, he must work with others to make changes he advocates. Otherwise, he will be only a lone voice of dissent with no real impact on how county government functions.

When he went to church this morning, the minister was giving a sermon and a cellphone started ringing somewhere. He looked and quickly responded, Is that the Lord, is that the Lord? Actually, there was laughter following.Move CR planI think the renewal plan for Crystal River looked good. The city should accept Commissioner (Dennis) Damatos and the countys offer to help to revitalize the city. Who cares whose idea it is? The taxpayers want action. Nice sidewalksI just wanted to say that this is Jan. 14 and nice job to the sidewalk maintenance in north Crystal River. They look awesome. Thank you.Get rid of PSCThe PSC is a rip-off for the people. It doesnt do nothing for the people that work for the electrical industry. I retired from the electrical industry and I know. A lot of past governors put in who they want in the PSC and actually they own lots of shares of stock in the old Progress Energy and stuff. Anyhow, its the worst thing out there for the consumer. It doesnt work for the consumer; it works for the big industry. The only group PSC people ever turned down a raise for the electrical industry. They all got kicked out of their job. So that goes to show you when youre in the PSC, youre a yes man or yes woman, and thats all there is to it. Theres nothing for the public. It needs to be done away with by the electric officials.Ignorance in countyTheres a new young man greeting people down in Habitat in Crystal River and he uses a machine to talk to you. Ignorant people walk right past him and never say Hello, never listen to his machine. Its a shame that people have to be so ignorant in this county.Up North, we In essence, the downtown development of Crystal River has merit. For people approaching it from the south, this must be some perplexity. The median on (U.S.) 19 into the city from Publix going north is ugly. The amount of rubbish in the median is great. What could be done to eliminate this is to do what we do up North. The court uses persons found guilty of certain offenses assigned to community service. These people may be used for the project like these median cleanups. Citrus County should implement a policy like this.

LETTERSto the Editor More taxesA recent letter to theChronicle requests support for President Obama while he asks the wealthy to pay a bit more in taxes, but the wealthy persons responsibility to balance the deficit is falsely assumed. I have been hearing the fair share story for four years now and have yet to be told what is fair. Have the liberal zealots not heard the CBO said the entire income of the wealthiest would only pay for our debt interest for a few weeks at best? And who are these rich folks? Are they not the people who give us jobs, create and support our economy by spending disposable income and pay most of the federal taxes already? Dont get me wrong, the wealthy should pay more, and they do in dollars (cant spend percentages). Does everyone assume fair share is money? Does a not-wealthy, nontaxpaying teacher pay a fair share, adding to the intellect of our nation? Do not our frontline troops pay their fair share by defending us? Make no mistake, most of middle class pays a form of fair share. And ironically, Mr. Obamas supporters will suffer most, with more and higher taxes despite his campaign promises. Every working person (overwhelmingly middle class) will have on Jan. 1, 2013, seen their payroll taxes rise by 2 percent. Consider too, there are more than 100 other taxes to consider, some still hidden in Obamacare legalese. Rich and poor alike pay sales tax, gas tax, utility tax, etc., etc., total add-up close to 50 percent. Mr. Obama did not promise any restriction on new taxes. They are coming too. Under consideration is 17 percent VAT tax, a real estate buyers tax, bank transaction tax, an 18 percent gasoline tax and many others. Increasing federal taxes on the rich will not cut it. Obama will get a lot more money from the middle class. He has to, its where the money is. The House of Representatives wants the president to outline spending cuts to reduce the need for economy-damaging tax hikes. Heres the log jam. Democrat legislators cannot cut spending without losing their base supporters, thereby losing their next election and thereby losing their opulent lifestyle. Theres more. Because the Fed has been printing money for the past four years, inflation is inevitably arriving soon and with a vengeance. The wealthy will be able to handle it, they have strong income. We, in the middle class, will suffer a crippling rise in all prices without any rise in income. Unfortunately, the current administration wasted four years doing nothing to head off the multiple impending crises. Blaming the current Congress misses the mark. It was the last two years of the Bush administration and the first two years of the Obama administration when both Democrat houses of Congress spent most of their time enacting an unpopular Obamacare while kicking the debt can down the road. The current Democratic Senate has not passed a budget in what, three-plus years? Why would they disavow our Constitution that way? A clue: entitlements and votes. The swing Obama supporters voted for their free lunch. Its a selfish world we live in. Remember, there is smart-selfish, there is dumb-selfish, but theres no unselfish. What will it take to save our Republic?Ted LaPorte HernandoKeeping my gunsIve just finished reading an article telling of the children who wrote letters to, and met with the president. In response to that I would say ... Oh yes, I just cant count the number of times my 8and 10-year-old came in and said, Mom, I need to write a letter to the president. Now, I am not attacking children here. But you parents need to get real, and not use your children as pawns in a political game. We all know the only opinion of any 8or 10-year-old, on any given subject, is merely a reflection of what they have heard their parents espouse. I am 62 years old and was raised in a rural/military-friendly environment, and as such, am very comfortable with guns. This does not make me dangerous. Nor does it make me a hater. I must say, I dont know if I could shoot another human being in my defense, but I can assure you I would kill a person without a second thought in defense of one of my children or grandchildren. I am very grateful to the Founding Fathers for securing my right to bear arms so that I could defend my family if necessary. No government will ever take my guns. I am positive I am not alone in this belief.

The Interstate 275 crash was one of at least four pileups that snared dozens of vehicles in the state on Monday. Parts of the state saw scattered snow showers, with isolated pockets of heavier snowfall. The girl died in the I-275 pileup near the Cincinnati suburb of Colerain Township. At least 20 injured people were taken to hospitals. The State Highway Patrol says an estimated 50 vehicles were in a pileup on I75, between Middletown and Monroe.

The confidential records filed in a lawsuit against the archdiocese disclose how the church handled abuse allegations for decades and also reveal dissent from a top Mahony aide who criticized his superiors for covering up allegations of abuse rather than protecting children. Notes inked by Mahony demonstrate he was disturbed about abuse and sent problem priests for treatment, but there also were lengthy delays or oversights in some cases. Mahony received psychological reports on some priests that mentioned the possibility of many other victims, for example, but there is no indication that he or other church leaders investigated further.

The widely held assumption of a victory by Netanyahu comes despite his grim record: there is no peace process, there is growing diplomatic isolation and a slowing economy, and his main ally has been forced to step down as foreign minister because of corruption allegations. Even so, Netanyahu has managed to convince many Israelis that he offers a respectable choice by projecting experience, toughness and great powers of communication in both native Hebrew and flawless American English. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressBEIRUT Russia said Monday it is sending two planes to Lebanon to start evacuating its citizens from Syria, the strongest sign yet that President Bashar Assads most important international ally has serious doubts about his ability to cling to power. The Russian announcement came as anti-government activists reported violence around the country, including air raids on the town of Beit Sahm near Damascus International Airport, just south of the capital. Russian officials said about 100 of the tens of thousands of Russian nationals in the country will be taken out overland to Lebanon and flown home from there, presumably because renewed fighting near the airport in Damascus has made it too dangerous for the foreigners to use that route out of the Syrian capital. Assad has dismissed calls that he step down. He has proposed a national reconciliation conference, elections and a new constitution, but the opposition insists he play no role in a resolution to the conflict. The U.N. says more than 60,000 people have died in the civil war since March 2011. Russia has been Assads main ally since the conflict began, using its veto power in the U.N. Security Council to shield Damascus from international sanctions. Russia recently started to distance itself from the Syrian ruler, signaling that it is resigned to him losing power. Russian President Vladimir Putin said last month that he understands Syria needs change and that he was not protecting Assad. Russian officials say the evacuation of thousands of its citizens from Syria many of them Russian women married to Syrians could be by both air and sea. A squadron of Russian Navy ships currently is in the Mediterranean for a planned exercise near Syrian shores later this month. Military officials earlier said that the exercise will simulate marines landing and taking people on board from the shore. Earlier this month, Lakhdar Brahimi, who is the joint U.N.-Arab League envoy for Syria, said that Russia seemed as determined as the United States to end Syrias civil war, but that he didnt expect a political solution to emerge anytime soon. Russia pulling out of Syria Allys actions raise doubts about Assad regimes stability Associated PressDIABALY, Mali French troops in armored personnel carriers rolled through the streets of Diabaly on Monday, winning praise from residents of this besieged town after Malian forces retook control of it with French help a week after radical Islamists invaded. The Islamists also have deserted the town of Douentza, which they had held since September, according to a local official who said French and Malian forces arrived there on Monday as well. The militants occupation of Diabaly marked their deepest encroachment into governmentheld territory, and Mondays retaking of the town is a significant victory for the French-led intervention. Diabaly, about 320 miles north of Bamako, the capital, fell into rebel hands Jan. 14. Residents said those who fled in the aftermath were forced to escape on foot through rice fields. We are truly really grateful to the French who came in the nick of time, said Gaoussou Kone, 34, the head of a local youth association. Without the French, not only would there no longer be a Diabaly, there would soon no longer be a Mali. These people wanted to go all the way to Bamako. On Monday, all that remained of the Islamists were the charred shells of their vehicles destroyed by the French air strikes. Three of them were clustered in one location, the machine gun cannon of one still pointing skyward. The cluster of rebel vehicles was directly in front of the home of an elderly man, Adama Nantoume, who said the French bombs started falling at around 11 p.m. the same day that the Islamists occupied Diabaly. I was at home, sitting like this against the wall, he said, showing how he had hugged his knees to his chest in a fetal position. The plane came and the bombs started to fall. After that, I saw that the cars had caught on fire. And the explosions were so loud that for a while I thought I had gone deaf. I was suffocated by the smoke and the light burned my eyes. The gas made me cry. Islamists had seized Diabaly just days after the French began their military operation on Jan. 11. The offensive is aimed at stopping the radical Islamists from encroaching toward the capital in Malis south from their strongholds in the vast, desert north where they have been amputating the hands of thieves and forcing women to wear veils for the last nine months. Meanwhile, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi who hails from his countrys oldest Islamist group, the Muslim Brotherhood opposed Frances military intervention in Mali.

Associated PressALGIERS, Algeria The hostage-taking at a remote Algerian gas plant was carried out by 30 militants from across the northern swath of Africa and two from Canada, authorities said. The militants, who wore military uniforms and knew the layout, included explosives experts who rigged it with bombs and a leader whose final order was to kill all the captives. The operation also had help with inside knowledge a former driver at the plant, Algerias prime minister said Monday. In all, 38 workers and 29 militants died, the Algerian prime minister said Monday, offering the governments first detailed account of four days of chaos that ended with a bloody military raid he defended as the only way possible to end the standoff. Five foreigners are still missing. You may have heard the last words of the terrorist chief, Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal told reporters. He gave the order for all the foreigners to be killed, so there was a mass execution, many hostages were killed by a bullet to the head. Mondays account offered the first Algerian government narrative of the standoff, from the moment of the attempted bus hijacking on Wednesday to the moment when the attackers prepared Saturday to detonate bombs across the sprawling complex. Thats when Algerian special forces moved in for the second and final time. All but one of the dead victims an Algerian security guard were foreigners. The dead hostages included seven Japanese workers, six Filipinos, three energy workers each from the U.S. and Britain, two from Romania and one worker from France. The prime minister said three attackers were captured but did not specify their nationalities or their conditions or say where they were being held. He said the Islamists included a former driver at the complex from Niger and that the militants knew the facilitys layout by heart. The vast complex is deep in the Sahara, 1,300 miles south of Algiers, with a network of roads and walkways for the hundreds of workers who keep it running. The militants had said during the standoff that their band included people from Canada, and hostages who had escaped recalled hearing at least one of the militants speaking English with a North American accent.

And the Kings are on the edge of leaving Sacramento. All that appears to stand in the way now is approval by NBA owners. The Maloof family has agreed to sell the Kings to a Seattle group led by investor Chris Hansen, the league confirmed in a statement Monday morning. The deal is still pending a vote by the NBA Board of Governors. A person familiar with the decision said that Hansens group will buy 65 percent of the franchise, which is valued at a total price of $525 million, and move the team to Seattle and restore the SuperSonics name. The deal will cost the Hansen group a little more than $340 million. The Maloofs will have no stake in the team. The Maloofs will get a $30 million non-refundable down payment by Feb. 1, according to the deal, the person said.

B2TUESDAY, JANUARY22, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS A true champion While taking a great morning run with my wife through Whispering Pines Park in Inverness last week, we started discussing the issue of Lance Armstrong, who was a great American sports hero. My wife loves to talk on these long runs and I just try to breathe and get few words into the conversation. I marvel at how naturally and easily my wife a lifetime track and endurance athlete covered the distance. She has pure natural talent, as well as years of hard work and training. And that seemed to be the point. Are there still truly great athletes and what does it take to be a truly great athletic champion and not take drugs? Like so many current athletes who have fallen from grace such as Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Marion Jones, they all started with exceptional talent. Armstrong had provided and maintained the great non-performance enhancing drug deception for years. He started out as a kid with a bike, lots of talent and worked hard and rode his way to the top. At some point, the progression from one level of performance to a higher level resulted in turning to drugs, as was the case in all of the aforementioned athletes. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to be on the speakers platform with Greg LeMond, the three-time winner of the Tour de France and the first American to do so. He invited me to his bike racing camp in the foothills of the Sierras. At the time, I thought I was in superb shape and a hotshot road bike racer being able to go for miles. I showed up at training camp and sat down for lunch with the guys when Greg notified the group that we were going out on a short two-hour warm-up ride. I had minimal concern about keeping up with the group training with Greg that was headed to the Tour. Getting on my bike after lunch, on a great sunny day, I was in the middle of the pack; however I rapidly found myself not only behind, but also out of sight. I returned to camp well after sunset and was fortunate there was a full moon. During this short training ride/torture, Greg and Steve Bauer, Olympic bronze medal road racer, came back to check on me. On their bikes, they were so smooth and with such amazing power, I thought they were on motorcycles. The point of my story is that Greg LeMond one of the most vocal athletes and Tour de France riders has decried the use of performance enhancing drugs from the start. He knew what it took just to win the Tour de France once legally and to watch another win it seven times, really! It took hard work and sacrifice. What it takes to be a champion starts with talent but does not end with drug use, though there is no question it is rampant throughout sport ... every sport and starting at amazingly young ages and causing both physical and mental illness. The key quality athletes must have beyond talent is the psychology to move past other talented athletes. These attributes include coachability, the willingness to learn and being able to perform under pressure when all those learned skills and talents are needed. Attitude is at the top of the list. There are very small margins that separate the winner from the loser. A champion has to have the extra bit of drive, persistence and perseverance. Olympic decathlon champion Daley Thompson would train twice on Christmas day because he knew his competitors would only do it once. Figure skating champions I knew worked extra hours on their new triple rotation jumps, fell skidding across the ice, got up and did it again and again. What many top champions do is to work and work and work and then say a little prayer. What we have to do is teach our kids that drugs are not the option to be a champion.

The Hurricanes capitalized with goals in the second half, including a shot from forward Juan Rodriguez that Pirates defender Austin Porta tried to deflect away from goal. Goalkeeper Kyle Kidd got caught back in the goal when the deflection occurred and could not keep the ball from passing the goal line. Crystal River entered the playoffs with high hopes after last season, when they missed the playoffs and finished with a 7-12-1 record. Head coach Bobby Verlato restructured the lineup, including having Swanson who alternated between forward and midfielder last year set in the lineup as a striker. Swanson responded by having his best season, which he acknowledged Monday was unexpected. Personally, Swanson said, I had gone over what I had expected myself to do. The Pirates played a tough 21-game schedule, with several on back-toback nights. They showed improvement in many areas; however, the team struggled to overcome injuries, and couldnt find consistent scorers to back up Swansons breakout year. After the final whistle marked their seasons end, Verlato thanked his team and seniors for their hard work all year, telling them, I hate for it to end that way. With 15 seniors departing, Verlato considers next season a rebuilding one. Kidd who finished the season with a remarkable 212 saves will return in goal. Hell be supported by defender Raymond Dingler and forward AJ Bass, among others. Verlato said there will be good things to work with. Its going to be a totally different look a totally different mentality, Verlato said. years playing behind Erving Walker, getting a few minutes here and there while showing glimpses of potential. Walker left Florida ranked fourth on the programs all-time scoring list (1,777) and first in assists (547). No doubt, he was one of the more consistent players in Donovans 17 seasons in Gainesville. But the Gators might be better with Wilbekin running the show. They certainly are better defensively. Wilbekin is averaging 8.3 points, 4.9 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.9 steals. Hes never going to touch Walkers career marks, but consider this: Walker had one 10-assist game in four years, including three as a starter. Wilbekin has posted two double-digit-assist games this month. Hes been good in terms of getting in the lane and making good decisions, Donovan said. His offense continues to grow. He takes good shots. He takes open ones. Hes a good finisher at the basket, and when he gets down the lane it kind of opens things up for us. A lot of times, when Erving would get down the lane, he would bet swallowed up. He would leave his feet sometimes, would drive me nuts, whereas I think Scottie can get down the lane and he can finish at the rim a little bit better. Still, Wilbekins defense is getting most of the attention. The 6-foot-2 Wilbekin doesnt have the height or reach of Hamilton or Brewer. But his quick feet, fast hands, gritty style and instincts make him a tough defender. And hes contagious. Center Pat Young, guard Mike Rosario and others feed off Wilbekins defensive intensity. And guard Kenny Boynton, who has been the teams top defender in recent years, seems to be benefiting most from Wilbekins play. With Wilbekin taking on the toughest defensive assignment, Boynton is able to rest more than usual on that end. Hes impressive, Boynton said. Hes taken over that role, and it says a lot about how much hes matured in a year. Wilbekin was suspended to start the season, missing the first three games for an undisclosed violation of team rules. But hes rebounded as well as Donovan expected and really settled into his role as a defensive stopper. And with Wilbekin leading the way, Florida hasnt allowed any opponent to reach 70 points this season. And in four SEC games, the Gators are giving up just 48.7 points. Scotties playing amazing right now, Young said. In my book, hes the best point guard Ive ever played with.

Fair tipped in the go-ahead basket with 19.4 seconds left and No. 3 Syracuse rallied past No. 21 Cincinnati 57-55 on Monday. Trailing by seven with just over 5 minutes left, Syracuse tied it at 55 on Michael Carter-Williams 3-pointer from the top of the key with 80 seconds left. Fairs tip came after Jerami Grant drove the lane and missed. Cincinnatis Cashmere Wright missed a 3 from straight on with 2.9 seconds left and the Orange had their 35th straight win at home, the longest active streak in Division I. The Orange outscored the Bearcats 13-4 in the final minutes.

Otto Porter scored 19 points to lead Georgetown to a 63-47 victory over No. 24 Notre Dame, the Fighting Irishs third loss in four games. It was a dismal night for Notre Dames offense, which recorded season lows in points scored, field goal percentage (35 percent) and assists (11). The Irish (15-4, 3-3 Big East) went on long stretches without scoring in both halves, while Georgetown (13-4, 3-3) shot 53 percent from the field. It was Notre Dames third Big East home loss over their past 24 conference home games. The game was reminiscent of last seasons 59-41 win by Georgetown over the Irish in Washington, when the Hoyas held Notre Dame to its lowest point total in nearly four years by limiting the Irish to 33 percent shooting. Jerian Grant led Notre Dame with 13 points. No. 3 Syracuse prevails Harbaugh brothers meet for Super Bowl Associated PressSANTA CLARA, Calif. Jim and John Harbaugh have exchanged a handful of text messages, and plan to leave it at that. No phone conversations necessary while the seasons still going. No time for pleasantries, even for the friendly siblings. There is work to be done to prepare for the Super Bowl, prepare for each other, prepare for a history-making day already being widely hyped as Harbowl or Superbaugh depending which nickname you prefer. It doesnt matter who the coach is, what relationship you have with the person on the other side, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said so matter-of-factly Monday. Their parents sure arent picking sides for the Feb. 3 matchup in New Orleans. These days, the Harbaughs longtime coaching father, Jack, stays away from game-planning chatter or strategy sessions with his Super Bowl-bound coaching sons. Baltimores John Harbaugh and little brother Jim have been doing this long enough now to no longer need dads input. Yet, they still regularly seek it. And, their father does offer one basic mantra: Get ahead, stay ahead. Probably the greatest advice that Ive ever been given and the only advice that Ive ever found to be true in all of coaching, I think we mentioned it to both John and Jim ... the coaching advice is, Get ahead, stay ahead, Jack Harbaugh said. If Im called upon, Ill repeat that same message. His boys still call home regularly to check in with the man who turned both on to the coaching profession years ago, and the mother who has handled everything behind the scenes for decades in a highly competitive, sports-crazed family with all the routine sports clichs to show for it. The Harbaugh brothers will become the first siblings to square off from opposite sidelines when their teams play for the NFL championship at the Superdome. Not that theyre too keen on playing up the storyline that has no chance of going away as hard as they try. Well, I think its a blessing and a curse, Jim Harbaugh said Monday. A blessing because that is my brothers team. And, also, personally I played for the Ravens. Great respect for their organization. ... The curse part would be the talk of two brothers playing in the Super Bowl and what that takes away from the players that are in the game. Every moment that youre talking about myself or John, thats less time that the players are going to be talked about. Bojana Jovanovski, Stephens qualified for her first quarterfinal at a major tournament. It will be tough, obviously. Its quarters of a Grand Slam, Stephens said. There wont be that, like, first time, Oh, my God, Im playing Serena. Thats kind of out of the window now. So thats good. Williams and defending champion Victoria Azarenka advanced Monday, losing just four games between them against Russian rivals. Williams beat No. 14 Maria Kirilenko 6-2, 6-0, and Azarenka defeated Elena Vesnina 6-1, 6-1. Next up for Azarenka is a quarterfinal against Svetlana Kuznetsova, who entered the seasons first major tournament ranked No. 75 but has won titles at the 2004 U.S. Open and 2009 French Open. On the mens side, No. 2 Roger Federer and U.S. Open champion Andy Murray stayed on course for a semifinal in their half of the draw. Federer won 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-2 over big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic, advancing to the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam for the 35th consecutive time, while Murray took advantage of Gilles Simons fatigue for a 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 victory. Federer will face 2008 Australian finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who beat friend and fellow Frenchman Richard Gasquet 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. Murray, who ended a 76year drought for British men in Grand Slam tournaments with a win at the U.S. Open, will next play unseeded Frenchman Jeremy Chardy. Chardy, who hit with Williams in a training camp at Mauritius at the end of 2012, followed up his upset win over 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro with a 5-7, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory over No. 21 Andreas Seppi. Top-ranked Novak Djokovic, who needed five hours to beat Stanislas Warwinka in the fourth round, is on the other side of the draw. Hell face No. 5 seed Tomas Berdych on Tuesday. Williams played Stephens at the Brisbane International earlier this month, winning their quarterfinal 6-4, 6-3 en route to the title. That night, Stephens said, she lost to the best player in the world. But there were times in the match when the American teenager was cranky, particularly when Williams unleashed some loud and long Come ons to celebrate vital points. Stephens, looking toward her coach at one point, said the celebrations were disrespectful. Later, she said she was just joking. Regardless, it was a lesson. The friendly Serena from the locker room is the ultimate competitor shes on a 20match winning roll and has lost only once since her firstround exit at the French Open. FORAYContinued from Page B1

Associated PressSYDNEY Indicted Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom launched a new filesharing website that promises users greater privacy and defies the U.S. prosecutors who accuse him of facilitating massive online piracy. The colorful entrepreneur unveiled the Mega site ahead of a lavish gala and news conference at his New Zealand mansion on Sunday night, the anniversary of his arrest on racketeering charges related to his now-shuttered Megaupload file-sharing site. The site Dotcom started in 2005 was one of the most popular sites on the Web until U.S. prosecutors shut it down and accused him and several company officials of facilitating millions of illegal downloads. In Dotcoms typical grandiose style, the launch party featured a tongue-incheek re-enactment of the dramatic raid on his home a year earlier, when New Zealand police swooped down in helicopters onto the mansion grounds and nabbed him in a safe room where he was hiding. Mega is going to be huge, and nothing will stop Mega whoo! a gleeful Dotcom bellowed from a giant stage set up in his yard, seconds before a helicopter roared overhead and faux police agents rappelled down the side of his mansion. Dotcom eventually ordered everyone to stop this madness! before breaking out into a dance alongside miniskirt-clad guards as music boomed. Bravado aside, interest in the site was certainly high. Dotcom said half a million users registered for Mega in its first 14 hours. U.S. authorities are trying to extradite the German-born Internet tycoon from New Zealand, where he is free on bail. Prosecutors say Dotcom made tens of millions of dollars while filmmakers and songwriters lost around $500 million in copyright revenue. U.S. prosecutors declined to comment on the new site, referring only to a court document that cites several promises Dotcom made while seeking bail that he would not and could not start a Megaupload-style business until the criminal case was resolved. I can assure the Court that I have no intention and there is no risk of my reactivating the Megaupload.com website or establishing a similar Internet-based business during the period until the resolution of the extradition proceedings, Dotcom said in a Feb. 15, 2012, affidavit. Dotcom argues that he cant be held responsible for copyright infringement committed by others and insists Mega upload complied with copyrights by removing links to pirated material when asked. NAHALTOOSI Associated PressThe Big Truck That Went By: How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster (Palgrave Macmillan), by Jonathan M. Katz After two and onehalf years in Haiti, Jonathan Katz was preparing to leave the impoverished but endlessly intriguing nation in January 2010. His next reporting assignment: Afghanistan. Then, a massive earthquake ripped apart his house, his plans and the lives of Haitians all around him. So Katz, then an Associated Press reporter and the only full-time American correspondent in Haiti, wound up staying to chronicle the aftermath of the temblor. Life in Afghanistan may have been more uplifting. In The Big Truck That Went By: How the World Came to Save Haiti and Left Behind a Disaster, Katz eloquently blends personal anecdotes and Haitian history with in-depth reportage to show how one catastrophe led to so many more, and how, three years later, Haiti has barely moved forward. At the heart of the book lies the question, does foreign aid actually work? Or, to paraphrase Katz, whatever happened to that $20 you sent to help the people of Haiti? The answers are not inspiring, and they should make people seriously think twice about donating to an international aid organization. For people who live or work in conflict zones where non-governmental organizations and U.N.-linked aid groups operate, Katzs findings may not be that surprising, simply a reaffirmation of depressing truths. But the ordinary reader will likely be shocked to learn of some of the tricks of the aid trade. For one thing, pledging money isnt the same as giving money, but governments around the world were quick to ignore that distinction when issuing their news releases about how they would save Haiti. Instead, billions of dollars pledged to help the quake-struck nation have yet to materialize, and the U.S. is no saint in this regard. The billions promised to Haiti also included significant amounts in debt relief. But its strange to count this as aid, Katz argues. After all, for people living in rubble and scrounging for food, its meaningless to hear that their government doesnt have to pay back money it didnt have in the first place. When countries do give money, much of it goes to international aid organizations the Red Crosses, the Save the Whatevers whose spending habits are difficult to trace and often questionable. Such groups frequently spend extraordinary amounts on their own administrative costs, money that doesnt get anywhere near suffering Haitians. Huge chunks of aid funds are spent on everything from SUVs to personal security guards to luxury hotel suites, not to mention many, many plane tickets, because, after all, aid workers are a peripatetic bunch. Many spend only a few weeks in a disaster zone, and the constant change in personnel means tremendous time is wasted getting newcomers up to speed. An international aid worker who spends more than two years in a troubled country such as Haiti is what counts as exceptional. So much for institutional memory. Or getting to understand the people and what they need. Even more direct government spending yielded some gems, Katz found. Why did the earthquake prompt the U.S. Coast Guard to spend $4,462 on a deep-fat fryer, Katz asks, noting that figure is years of income for the average Haitian. Then there was the $18,000 contract the U.S. Navy signed for a jungle gym from a Georgia company which it could have bought for one-third the amount online. Many of the contracts signed post-quake were with non-Haitian companies, which is understandable to a degree considering the lack of capacity in the struggling country. But, Katz argues, its misleading to call such spending money for Haiti, especially when it gives the impression that any Haitian could have misappropriated or even profited from it. If anything, much of the money was a stimulus program for the donor countries themselves. But what to do with your $20? Give it to the Haitians themselves? Katz, in effect, argues yes. Do research, find groups that have longstanding experience in Haiti with people who speak the local languages and actually understand the situation on the ground. Katz also questions the conventional wisdom that the Haitian government is too corrupt to be entrusted with more of the money. He raises legitimate concerns about how people define corruption in Haiti and whether the definition is so broad that it is an impediment to strengthening the government in the long term. Katz argues that the Haitian government has been so left out of the loop, and received so little direct aid, that it has not had a chance to prove its worth. Its a vicious cycle: The fact that so much of the money goes to groups outside the government keeps it from ever gaining strength, ability or the confidence of its people. Sadly, this was the case long before the earthquake aid groups have long proliferated in Haiti while the government is barely functional. The situation begs the question: Is their longevity in Haiti something aid organizations should boast of? After all, if theyd done their job, would they even need to be there anymore? The Big Truck That Went By is hardly a statistical analysis or a mere policy book. It probably could have devoted a hundred more pages to the question of aid and remained riveting. Instead, Katz elegantly uses personal anecdotes and the stories of Haitians whose lives were turned upside down to paint a portrait of a struggling yet beguiling country. He also includes dollops of history for the novices among us, background that anyone with a rosy view of U.S. intervention should read carefully. In one of the most interesting sections, Katz describes investigating what led to the cholera outbreak in Haiti months after the earthquake, proving almost beyond any doubt that the illness was imported by U.N. troops something for which he says the world body has yet to be held accountable. One hopes that the policymakers involved in helping Haiti read this book and take it to heart. The people of Haiti certainly deserve better than what theyve been getting.Road to disaster Birthday Lucky you, because during tough times, two loyal friends might go out of their way to make your life easer in the year ahead. Be sure to show proper gratitude for their intervention. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) In an involvement with friends, dont depend upon any one person to get things organized. You should know if you want something done, do it yourself. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Youre likely to be far more successful in your commercial affairs if you use an indirect approach. Dont be too obvious about your intentions and tip your hand prematurely. Aries (March 21-April 19) If you feel you could do a better job of making arrangements for others than someone else, dont hesitate to ask to take over. That person might be pleased to get rid of the job. Taurus (April 20-May 20) An important objective is reachable, but you might have to alter your tactics to achieve it. You wont mind being flexible. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Because you always do quite well with situations that challenge your imagination and creativity, you wont dodge assignments that appear complex or difficult to others. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Much to your surprise, youll perform ably and even reap substantial benefits from an arrangement that you thought offered little or no possibilities whatsoever. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Teaming up with others could turn out to be a fortunate move for you, especially if your allies are as bold as you are. This is not a day for shrinking violets. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You are now in a cycle where you could receive a lot of deserving acknowledgement and rewards for past work. Instead of easing up, push harder. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Instead of attempting to manipulate developments, let nature run its course. Youre in a fortunate cycle, but Lady Luck needs lots of room and freedom to operate. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Remain both hopeful and expectant today, because, just when you think an important matter cant be finalized to your satisfaction, events will take a turn for the better. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Try once again to get in touch with certain people who you believe are important to your immediate plans. They are likely to be more receptive to your ideas than they were previously. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be sure to manage your resources with extreme care, because your material trends look uncertain. Dont unrealistically raise your expectations.

HEATHERHOLLINGSWORTH Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. The case of a Kansas sperm donor being sued by the state for child support underscores a confusing patchwork of aging laws that govern assisted reproduction in the United States and often lead to litigation and frustration among would-be parents. Complex questions about parental responsibility resurfaced late last year, as Kansas officials went after a Topeka man who answered a Craigslist ad from a lesbian couple seeking a sperm donor. Because no doctor was involved in the artificial insemination, the state sought to hold William Marotta financially responsible for the child when the women split up and one of them sought public assistance. A hearing is set for April. Many states havent updated their laws to address the evolution of family structures such as same-sex families, single women conceiving with donated sperm or artificial inseminations performed without a doctors involvement. At-home insemination kits are inexpensive, and obtaining sperm from a friend, or even a donor met over the Internet, allows women to avoid medical costs that generally arent covered by insurance. But experts say that as case law changes, families put themselves at risk by failing to seek legal advice. The first wave of assisted reproduction laws were based on model legislation from 1973. These statutes typically call for, among other things, the involvement of a medical provider in order for a sperm donor to be freed of parental responsibility. They put a whole bunch of what they thought were reasonable restrictions on the process to encourage people to do it responsibly, said Steve Snyder, a Minnesota family law attorney and chairman of an assisted reproduction committee for the American Bar Association. But, he said, the problem is that if people dont fall under the strict terms of the law, then the law doesnt protect you. As a result, the doctor involvement requirement and other stipulations were Child support?HEALTH& LIFE For many years, I have written about the dangers of smoking in relation to cancer, and not only cancer of the lung. Many other cancers are associated with smoking, including bladder cancer. Now a new study not only shows a link between smoking and the risk of developing cancer, but also a strong link between continuing to smoke and the chance of dying from the cancer. In this study, smoking was found to not only cause bladder cancer, it also affects its course, in that people who smoke more have a greater likelihood of developing a more aggressive and deadly form of this cancer. Bladder cancers in smokers See BENNETT/ Page C5 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Advance in breast cancer Irecently saw Mrs. Smith. She is 70 years old. Almost 12 years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer in her left breast. She was treated with a lumpectomy (the removal of cancerous breast tissue but not the whole breast). She also had radiation therapy and then chemotherapy followed by hormone therapy with tamoxifen for five years. She was going for regular follow-up and mammogram. Now, she has new cancer in her remaining left breast. She was referred to me and so I did PET/CT scan and there is no radiological The technical medical definition of hyperacusis is abnormally acute or sensitive hearing that could lead to pain and irritability. The practical definition is that it is anxiety and pain produced by just being in a normal environment. This phenomena is described as a situation where an individual hears sounds louder than they actually are, and as a result becomes very sensitized, and can even have so much discomfort it creates pain. Now, we are all familiar with loud noises such as jet engines, race cars and guns that will hurt our ears, but could you imagine getting pain from everyday noises such as your eyes moving in your head, or hearing yourself chewing, or simply walking on the ground hearing the repeated steps? How about the fact when you leave your house, you dont know where the next noise could be coming from, and that could certainly be anxiety producing if that noise would cause you to have some discomfort. Hyperacusis acute hearing Q:When I was a younger child, I chipped my front tooth at the base. I was told the root died and I had root canal on that tooth. Im currently 44 years old, and about 16 years ago, my dentist in Birmingham, Ala., replaced the crown I had on that tooth with a porcelain to metal (I believe) crown. The tooth itself is perfect and the color is perfect. My complaint over all these years is the gum tissue above my tooth is dark. It is not the top of the crown meeting the gum that makes it appear dark, as it is dark well above that area. Is it the metal post coming through giving that appearance, or is my gum tissue actually dark due to the deadening of the root? Do I have any other options to get rid of the appearance of the darker gum tissue?

CHRISTINEBROUSSARDThe Daily Sentinel of Nacogdoches NACOGDOCHES, TexasNo one would assume by looking at him that Scott Massey, 46-yearold Nacogdoches resident and Mental Health and Mental Retardation county employee, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder. Following recent shootings in Colorado and Connecticut, the debate over mental health options and awareness have increased. For Massey, the stigma that comes with having a mental disorder and its treatment can best be addressed through education. Educating is very important. Educating and insight, he said. The more education you have, the more insight you have. The more insight, the quicker people will get well. As long as people know whats going on, its not a mystery. Like most mental illnesses, Masseys PTSD is controlled through a series of medications, self-relaxation therapy and monthly checkups. Although stabilized, his fight is constant and required a very long, bleak period of adjustment. Masseys childhood was simple, but unique. The son of a Chickasaw Indian, Massey lived with his biological father in Oklahoma as a member of the Chickasaw Nation. After his mother remarried, she and her husband moved with Massey to a ranch near Canton, Texas. I grew up on a ranch and was a pretty normal kid. I never had drug or alcohol issues. After trying college, and it didnt work out for me, I joined the service. Serving 12 years of active duty, nine of those in the Marines, Massey experienced a world he never had been introduced. I had several significant combat incidents while I was in (the service). A few years ago, when I was in an operation in North Africa, I had a flashback, Massey said. Its just a really nice, neat way to say psychotic break. I can nearly tell you the day and almost the time that my entire life changed. At that moment something broke in my head, and my brain chemistry changed and nothing has been the same. Although the incidents Massey encountered while serving in the military altered his state of mind, he noted the difficulty of pinpointing exactly what event altered his brains chemistry. It was probably the stress of things (in the Marines) and not even the combat. One of the incidents that troubles me the most was probably the least violent. People are hardwired differently. You never know whats going to affect one person over the other. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I never had any mental health problems before. I was just falling apart. Massey began seeing a psychologist who specialized in PTSD and would ultimately diagnose him. After returning to the United States, his condition showed no sign of improving. I got so profoundly depressed I was almost catatonic. They tried the traditional medications on me, and they didnt work. As a last-ditch effort, they put me through ECT (Electric Convulsive Therapy). Electric shock therapy is what it is. Its not at all what the movies portrayed. You dont twitch or flinch. Shortly after ECT, he began to respond to medications, allowing them to put him on mood stabilizers. It elevated my mood enough where I came up out of the depression long enough that I was able to respond to cognitive therapy, he said. That is where the long road started. Coming to terms with his altered state of mind was Masseys first fight. Even as sick as I was, I remember walking in the first time I had an appointment with the psychologist. There was a sign-in log, and I sat there and could not write my name, because the minute I put my name down and signed in to be seen, I was admitting I was crazy. The other big turning point for me was when they handed me pills, he said. The stigma itself will make you resistant to treatment, and its really difficult to get over that. Massey fought hard against the idea that he needed mental guidance, but his psychologist proved to be even more stubborn. I came in to see my psychologist, and was in a real bad mood. And she said, Im not going to waste your time, and youre not going to waste mine. So Im going to leave you with this. Life is all about choices. You are where you are today because of choices you made. If you dont like where youre at today, make different choices and youll be somewhere different tomorrow. At odds with his condition, and frustrated with the struggle, Massey walked out of her office in a huff. But her words slowly began to instill a sense of hope that Massey had lost long before. After a long night of suicidal thoughts, Massey made a decision in the early morning light to fight. I made up my mind that if she told me to go home and drink Kool-Aid and stand on my head and recite the pledge of the allegiance, I would be a standing-on-my-head, Kool-Aiddrinking, allegiance-reciting individual. I have a very profound thanks for the doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers everyone that does what they do. If it wasnt for them, I would have been dead a long time ago. Life had pitched Massey a severe curve ball, but he soon realized the only person who could help him was himself, so he got to work. Id always wanted to be a Marine. When all of this happened to me, it was humbling. I was going to be a career Marine, and literally in a moment it was all gone, Massey said. Because it was so humbling and life altering, it affected me profoundly. At first, it was just an attempt to get myself well. Next thing you know, Im taking a job (as a peer provider). The truth to getting well is youve got to be willing to put out the effort. If a person is not prepared to do the work, then theyre not ready to get well yet. Massey now has a passion for helping those in the position he found himself in years ago. His experience with psychotic breaks and the bipolar disorder that developed out of his PTSD gives him a strong presence in the treatment of patients. As a peer provider for the local MHMR, Massey helps patients understand what is happening to them and helps them work through their issues a kind of navigator through the process. I have a wide range of symptoms personally. So usually when people come in, I have some idea of what patients are dealing with, and that usually puts them at ease and builds a rapport, Massey said. A big thing was people saw me up and functioning and going to work every day, and a lot of them thought If this guy can do it, I can do it. A severe cut in mental health funds through the Texas Legislature a couple years ago affected mental health services statewide, and local agencies felt the shock waves, Massey said. Mental health needs to happen on a state and community level. If the feds want to funnel some funds, thats great, but no one knows how to take care of us better than we do. Some of these people are so profoundly ill they cant take care of themselves. If we had more people, more funding ... the case loads are incredible, he said. We need more people to go check on these people and make sure theyre on their medications. Incidents of hospitalization would go down. Massey now spends his days in the pursuit of sharing his own experiences and information with any and all who are willing to listen. Whenever I speak to a group I tell them, When you leave here, I really dont care if you remember my name, I just want you to hear the story. Fear oftentimes is just something we dont understand. The more you educate people and they understand what theyre dealing with, its not upsetting anymore. That is my mission, to try to educate.

A cold front moving through the Southeast is expected to further impact a blood shortage across the region. Galen Unold, director of donor recruitment and retention with LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, said the cold front and snow will mean blood drives in many affected communities could be canceled. This is coming at a time when supplies were already low because of reduced donations during the winter holidays, Unold said. Meanwhile, blood usage at many of our hospitals is far above normal, making the shortage even more serious. Unold said all blood types are needed, but blood types AB-positive and -negative and O-negative are in shortest supply. Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also required. For information about donating, donors can call LifeSouth toll-free at 888-795-2707 or go to www.lifesouth.org. HPH Hospice, Healing Peoples Hearts in partnership with the Alzheimers Association of Florida, Gulf coast Chapter, is offering two free seminars for caregivers of Alzheimers and dementia patients. Both seminars will be provided by Jerry Fisher, MSW, program specialist for the Alzheimers Association On Feb. 12 from 2 to 3 p.m., the topic will be Changes in Communications. Alzheimers disease and related dementia can gradually diminish a persons ability to communicate. Not only do people with dementia have more difficulty expressing thoughts and emotions, they also have more trouble understanding others. Fisher will provide information on the best possible ways to improve communication. On Feb. 19 from 2 to 3 p.m., the topic will be Dealing with Difficult Behaviors. Fisher will discuss how Alzheimers and related dementia patients can become anxious or aggressive and sometimes misinterpret what they hear. He will share ways to identify those behaviors and explore possible solutions. Space is limited and reservations are required. The free seminars will be at HPHs Team office at 3545. N.

Call Jeff Haight, R.N., group facilitator, at 352688-7744. Q:I heard the FDA is warning people about using a drug to help them sleep. What can you tell me about this? A: On Jan. 10, the FDA notified the public of new information about zolpidem, a widely prescribed insomnia drug. FDA recommends the bedtime dose be lowered, because new data show blood levels in some patients may be high enough the morning after use to impair activities that require alertness, including driving. The announcement focuses on zolpidem products approved for bedtime use, which are marketed as generics and under the brand names Ambien, Ambien CR, Edluar and Zolpimist. The FDA is also reminding the public all drugs taken for insomnia can impair driving and activities that require alertness the morning after use. Drowsiness is already listed as a common side effect in the drug labels of all insomnia drugs, along with warnings that patients may still feel drowsy the day after taking these products. Patients who take insomnia drugs can experience impairment of mental alertness the morning after use, even if they feel fully awake. The FDA urges health care professionals to caution all patients (men and women) who use these zolpidem products about the risks of next-morning impairment for activities that require complete mental alertness, including driving. For zolpidem products, data show the risk for next-morning impairment is highest for patients taking the extended-release forms of these drugs (Ambien CR and generics). Women appear to be more susceptible to this risk, because they eliminate zolpidem from their bodies more slowly than men. Because use of lower doses of zolpidem will result in lower blood levels in the morning, the FDA is requiring the manufacturers of Ambien, Ambien CR, Edluar and Zolpimist to lower the recommended dose. The FDA has informed the manufacturers that the recommended dose of zolpidem for women should be lowered from 10 mg to 5 mg for immediate-release products (Ambien, Edluar and Zolpimist) and from 12.5 mg to 6.25 mg for extended-release products (Ambien CR). The FDA also informed the manufacturers that, for men, the labeling should recommend health care professionals consider prescribing the lower doses 5 mg for immediate-release products and 6.25 mg for extended-release products. The recommended doses of Intermezzo, a lower-dose zolpidem product approved for middle-ofthe-night awakenings, are not changing. The FDA is continuing to evaluate the risk of impaired mental alertness with other insomnia drugs, including over-thecounter (OTC) drugs available without a prescription. To decrease the potential risk of impairment with all insomnia drugs, health care professionals should prescribe, and patients should take, the lowest dose capable of treating the patients insomnia. Patients who drive or whose activities require full alertness the morning after use of an insomnia drug should discuss the appropriateness of their medicine with their health care professional. If you are currently taking the 10 mg or 12.5 mg dose of zolpidem-containing insomnia medicine, continue taking your prescribed dose as directed until you have contacted your health care professional to ask for instructions on how to safely continue to take your medicine. Each patient and situation is unique, and the appropriate dose should be discussed with your health care professional. Richard P. Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Those medical privacy rules you run into at hospitals, pharmacies and in your own doctors office are getting an update. Regulations unveiled last week by the Obama administration create new information rights that should make life easier for consumers. They also tighten restrictions on medical service providers trying to use patient information for marketing, and they greatly expand the list of businesses that can be punished for unauthorized disclosures. The government has taken pretty dramatic steps to strengthen privacy protections that previously existed for consumers, said Dianne Bourque, a Boston lawyer specializing in medical regulation. The longawaited rules carry out a 2009 law promoting electronic medical records and updating federal privacy protections. On the privacy front, doctors will now have to get prior approval from patients to pitch new medications or medical devices if those pitches are being paid for by a drug company or manufacturer. For example, sometimes a pharmaceutical company will pay doctors to send all their heart patients a letter about a new medication. It may not be readily apparent to the patient that the drug company is compensating the doctor for sending the update. The rules also create new rights for consumers. For instance, you should find it much easier to get your medical records electronically instead of on paper. Up to now, some doctors and hospitals have been able to avoid providing records electronically by saying they dont have the capability. They wont be able to default to, Sorry, we cant send this to your home (computer) system; we have to give you a paper copy, said Susan McAndrew, a government lawyer who oversaw the regulations at the Health and Human Services Department. Another welcome change: with your permission, your doctor can share your childrens immunization records directly with a school. That simple tweak to existing rules will save parents from having to shuttle forms back and forth. And, if you pay cash for a medical service, you can tell the doctor not to share information with your insurer. The sensitivity sometimes arises with people paying out-of-pocket for mental health counseling, McAndrew said. The onus of complying with the new rules will fall mainly on the health care industry and contractors. One of the most notable changes is that companies that provide support services to doctors and hospitals will now face steep penalties for unauthorized disclosures of patient information. The compliance bar for folks who work with health care providers is much higher now, said Bourque. The rules take effect at the end of September, after a period for health care service providers to learn the new requirements. The original federal privacy law, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, known as HIPAA, dates back to 1996. or input you might have regarding this issue. A: This is a great question. The first thing that comes to mind when someone says discolored gums, localized to one area, is what is called an amalgam tattoo. Amalgam is commonly referred to as a silver filling. It is the most common filing material used in the mouth. On occasion, some of the amalgam fillings enter the area between the tooth and the gums and can cause this discoloration, or tattoo, over time. I have also seen it happen when a tooth is removed at the same appointment as a filling is placed. If the amalgam finds its way into the extraction socket, it can cause a discoloration, or tattoo, over time. I doubt this is the scenario with you because it is unusual to use a silver filling in one of the front teeth. You mentioned there was a post and it might be coming through the tooth. Was this ever mentioned to you? If so, it is a good possibility it is causing the discoloration. My only concern is if it were coming through the tooth, you would likely know about it through some sort of symptom. One way to figure this out is to take a series of Xrays at different angles. If this were inconclusive, you could have a 3-D scan of the area done that will alert you to this immediately. Another thought is how far below the gum did the tooth break before the crown was put on? If it was quite far, per a dentists judgment, your tissue might be having a response to the metal in the crown. If this were the case, removal of the crown would prevent any further staining, but the stain that is there will remain. Undoubtedly, you want to know what to do about the discoloration. Assuming the source of the stain is figured out and eliminated, I feel a gum graft done by a very competent periodontist would make the most sense. They should be able to remove the stained tissue and replace it with tissue from elsewhere in your mouth. The contour of this tissue is difficult to make perfect even in the best of hands. My suggestion to you would be to know that something can be done to make things look better, but be prepared to do some additional work for an ideal outcome. Things like remaking the existing crown can be expected. Recontouring of the graft tissue, as well as surrounding area, might be needed as well. Depending on the condition of the adjacent teeth some work might be needed on them as well. This is a tough situation; however, when approached properly from the start, I am certain you will experience an improvement. Start by talking to your dentist about it. If for any reason you do not have the confidence in him or her after the conversation, do yourself a big favor and search until you find someone who you can have 100 percent confidence in.

VASCIMINIContinued from Page C1 Believe it or not, there are millions of people in the United States who have this affliction, and basically it is a problem with the inner ear, as well as the brain centers that process that information and allows us to hear without problems in normal situations. The mechanism of the disease is not well understood, but there is a feeling that there is a dampening device that normally works in the ear that will allow someone to ignore other noises and not be uncomfortable, and allow oneself to focus on the task at hand. When this disease occurs, the brain centers alter the sound processing signal, and make it much louder than it normally is, thus causing the problem. To make matters worse, people who have hyperacusis also have a hearing loss, which is a double whammy. In the past few years, another problem causing this type of sensitivity has been discovered, and is better understood, and it is called superior canal dehiscent syndrome. In sports news, there have been a couple of articles about a sports broadcaster who suffered with this problem, and it interfered with his daily work. Imagine being in a stadium with screaming fans, how uncomfortable it was for him. He had some surgery recently, and we will see in the next few months if that helps him. In the typical case of hyperacusis, a cure it is not really a goal, but treatment, and reducing anxiety and fears, as well as simply using some ear plugs to muffle sounds sometimes is adequate. The audiologist who is a specialist in hearing problems and works closely with ear, nose and throat doctors also can do retraining therapy to try to downplay the effects of this loud noise. Everything from meditation, use of herbs, and even medications used for seizure activity, anxiety and depression have been tried to conquer this problem. Much more research and understanding is needed to control this problem that we think affects somewhere between 15 million and 20 million Americans. If you are interested in any further information in regards to this particular problem, there are a couple of associations that might be helpful and are accessible online. This includes The American Hyperacusis Association and The American Tinnitus Association.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

She was referred to her surgeon, who removed the remaining left breast. She has almost a half an inch cancer in her breast, which fortunately has not spread to any lymph nodes. Recently, the first study of its kind was presented at the 35th annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS). The study was comprised of 162 patients who had local breast cancer recurrence many years after original diagnosis, just like in my patients. They randomized patients to either give chemotherapy or not. The treatment was given for three to six months. The choice of chemo therapy depended on what the patient received at the time of their original diagnosis and it was selected by the patients oncologist. My patient received Adriamycin chemotherapy 12 years ago, and so I would not like to give her the same chemotherapy again due to the risk of side effects on her heart. The study showed significant benefit for patients who received chemotherapy. There was an absolute difference of 12 percent in the five-year disease-free survival rate between the chemotherapy group and the no-chemotherapy group (69 percent vs. 57 percent). Disease-free survival means cancer did not come back at all. There was also an absolute difference of 12 percent in the five-year overall survival rate between the chemotherapy group and the no-chemotherapy group (88 percent vs. 76 percent). Overall survival means the patient is alive irrespective of cancer recurrence. This is always higher than disease-free survival because even if cancer recurs, many women can live with treatment for many more years. This is very significant benefit. Patients with an isolated local and/or regional recurrence of breast cancer have a poor prognosis and are at high risk for developing metastases in other areas of the body. Once cancer progresses to distant organs like the lung, liver, bone, etc., it becomes incurable. At that time, treatment is only palliative. Our goal in my patient is curative. I have recommended her chemotherapy and she is going to start it very soon. I am really optimistic that my patient will be cured from her cancer.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHIContinued from Page C1 This study was recently published online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society. As an oncologist, I have known for years that smoking is one of the most common causes of bladder cancer, and I have written about this in the past. But now, startling data is available regarding a link to smoking and how the disease progresses. In this study, researchers at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California analyzed bladder tumors and smoking history in 212 patients recruited through the Los Angeles County Cancer Surveillance Program between 1987 and 1996. Researchers found that the bladder cancers that developed in individuals who smoked intensely were more likely to be deadly than bladder cancers that developed in those who never smoked, or who smoked less. The study also revealed that changes in particular proteins are often present in bladder cancers that have become deadly. This finding of nine molecular markers that can predict bladder cancer prognosis may assist in designing treatment plans in the future. Patients with abnormalities in six to nine markers had a very poor outcome, raising the possibility that these individuals could have benefited from more aggressive treatments. Because the number of changes in these proteins was directly proportional to patients health outcomes, the findings confirm the theory that an accumulation of changes is more important than individual changes in determining the characteristics of a given cancer. The link between smoking intensity and prognosis found in this study points to the incrementally harmful effects of smoking. Yes, the more you smoke, the worse your cancer may be, even more reason for all smokers to quit.Dr. C.

The new language has been enacted in nine states, including Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas. But Kansas law, enacted in 1994, was based on the earlier model. Kansas isnt alone in grappling with assisted reproduction issues. In Indiana, an appeals court ruled last week that a man who divorced his wife must pay child support for their son and daughter, even though the children were conceived by artificial insemination using sperm donated by another man. Still another case in Indiana involved a man who was ordered in 2010 to pay child support for only one of the two children resulting from his sperm donations. The only way to avoid these situations is to change the law to catch up with the technology and what people are actually doing in assisted reproduction, Snyder said. Sperm donation and parental rights may sound like a relatively niche sector in the legal arena, but updating laws has been a challenge, and some like the rules just the way they are. Kansas state Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce, a conservative Republican, said he doubts legislators will or should consider making changes. It tells everybody dont do stupid things on Craigslist. Its kind of common sense, he said. If youre going to create another life, even if its a good intention, thats a heck of a responsibility, and its one that precedes any sort of state action. In the 2010 Indiana case, a woman who used a friends sperm to conceive two children sought public assistance after she and her lesbian partner separated. County officials wanted to collect child support from the donor. A state appeals court ultimately ruled that an agreement entered into before the first childs birth freed the donor from financial responsibility for that child. But the donor was found to be financially responsible for the second child, because the agreement didnt cover subsequent children. It is definitely evolving and these kinds of cases are really cutting-edge, said Sean Lemieux, an Indianapolis attorney who also represented the sperm donor. It is a risky thing and this is not the place to save your money upfront and get an office form off the Internet. A high-profile California case, meanwhile, shows the consequences of going without a contract. Texas bodybuilder Ronnie Coleman, who donated sperm for his ex-girlfriends artificial insemination, paid thousands of dollars in child support each month for nearly four years for two children until an appeals court ruled in March that he could stop. Peter A. Lauzon, the Los Angeles attorney who represented the eight-time Mr. Olympia, said the legal issues surrounding artificial insemination create a chilling effect. Who is going to want to donate sperm? he asked. No one. Mikki Morrissette, a mother of two who didnt use a doctor for her artificial inseminations, once found herself asked to identify her sperm donor while seeking statesubsidized health insurance in Minnesota after moving there from New York City. She refused and was denied. I know a lot of other women around the country who have used a known donor who have run into similar problems, said Morrissette, who was written five books, including Choosing Single Motherhood: The Thinking Womans Guide. She said the same request isnt made of adoptive parents or when an anonymous donor is used: Its not fair.HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JANUARY22, 2013 C5 000DPI3 4805 S.

The question is: Who had the most fun, the cast or the audience? With the plays premise that nuns just want to have fun, the answer is probably a toss up! Written by Dan Goggin, directed by Sharon Harris with musical direction by Brady Lay and the accompaniment of Vee Balemian, the choreography was by Shalyn Barker, owner of Victorias School of the Dance. Howling laughter permeated the theater throughout the play. Outrageous dialogue was delivered with spirited enthusiasm by the sisters, one and all. It was an astounding showcase of talent. Unrestrained frivolity reigned in scene after scene. The sisters entered the theater from the rear, prancing briskly down the aisles headed for the stage. From that point on, they proved, once more, that local talent is alive and well, orchestrated by the all-volunteer troupe of players who entertain us season after season. Sharon Vetter, as Sister Robert Anne, will be remembered for her roles in The Sound of Music, Mame and The King and I. Chris Venable, as the Rev. Mother Regina, was a standout performer in Move Over Mrs. Markham and as a convincing villain in Kind Lady. Her dynamic portrayal as the leader of the sisters pack rates four stars! Sandy Mosley played Sister Mary Hubert. A versatile volunteer at the Art Center, she is an accomplished musical director as well as a talented performer. Ashlyn Gibbs was Sister Mary Amnesia, and what a voice. Ever forgetful and shy until she began to sing, she wowed the audience with her considerable range. Her skill as a ventriloquist was a surprising revelation for her fans. A recent venture for Gibbs further enhanced her versatility, as director of Mark Twain, the youth play. This lead singer for So Divine, a local female group, also shines in the Citrus Community Concert Choir and the choir at Crystal River First Presbyterian. It was quite a windfall to have Shalyn Barker join the troupe of players for this most adventuresome musical of challenging proportions. Her contribution to the production was invaluable. As Sister Mary Leo, we heartily applaud her generous, creative involvement. Mary Ellen Craver, who played Sister Mary Thomas in her debut with the Art Center, also enjoys singing at adult-living facilities. An accomplished dancer as well, welcome aboard! Stacey Griffis portrayed Sister Mary Eugene. Ever the sunshine over any cast, Griffis, an accomplished costumer and performer, has starred in numerous plays, the most memorable being My Fair Lady, The Music Man and The King and I. Ashley Griffis, who played Sister Mary Cardelia, has thoroughly embraced the high adventure that awaits those who experience theater at its finest at the Art Center. Emily Mosley, who portrayed Sister Mary Richard, is a Lecanto High School student who is actively involved in theater, having appeared in Mame and The Wizard of Oz. She represented Citrus County on flute at the Festival of the Winds at Tampa USF. The Little Sisters of Hoboken took us out of the realm of convent prayer and solitude life into the reality of the human condition that evokes fun and laughter. They shared the humor. Some of the scenarios were unforgettable. They include: The Rockette-style precision high kicks. Insightful mentoring lines: Dont direct the spotlight. Let the spotlight come to you. The loudest drummer doesnt always lead the band. The Shuffle Off to Buffalo tapdancing nuns. The Rev. Mother donning a Carmen Miranda hat. The audience participation quiz for a prayer card prize: Why did the priest giggle? Answer: It was a case of Mass hysteria. What is a nun that walks in her sleep? Answer: A Roman Catholic. Four nuns exiting the stage penguin style. The hilarious baking scene from the nuns cookbook recipe of Mary Magdalene tarts. The I want to be a country music star scene and go to Nashville to sing like Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Brenda Lee. The cast formed a picture-perfect chorus line to close out a fabulous evenings entertainment with a parting thought to the audience: Everyone here tonight has the potential to be a saint.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

TUESDAY, JANUARY22, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Lao-tzu, a Chinese philosopher who died in 531 B.C., said, When the highest type of men hear Tao, they diligently practice it. When the average type of men hear Tao, they half believe in it. When the lowest type of men hear Tao, they laugh heartily at it. Without the laugh, there is no Tao. This week we are looking at the defensive principle that if you lead a low card from length, you guarantee at least one honor in that suit. With a weak suit, you lead an unnecessarily high card. This is no laughing matter, but there is one situation when the rule should be ignored when you are leading partners suit and you have not supported that suit. Then, giving length information is (usually) more important than strength information. This deal is a textbook example. North passes as dealer, East opens one heart, and South leaps majestically to four spades. If West leads the heart seven (top of nothing), East will think it is a singleton or high from a doubleton. He will win the first trick with the heart nine (low from touching cards when playing third hand high), take the heart ace, and try to cash the heart king. But South will ruff and run all of his trumps. There is no minor-suit squeeze, but declarer takes eight spades and two clubs. Instead, West should lead the heart two, low from length in partners unsupported suit. Then East, after taking two tricks in the suit, will know that West has the one extant heart. East will shift to the diamond two (low from an honor) and the defenders will take two tricks in that suit for down one.

On occasion, they have asked to bring their current boyfriend or girlfriend home for a visit to meet the family. The friend then stays in a separate room for a night or two. The problem is my husband. He gets extremely upset about these visits and accuses me of encouraging immoral behavior. He says that allowing these friends to stay at our house gives tacit approval for them to spend the night away from home. I say it is normal hospitality to open our home to our kids friends. Is he being irrational, or am I missing something? Conflicted Mother Dear Conflicted: There is absolutely nothing wrong with a child spending the night away from home, and certainly not a 20-something adult. Your husband apparently is convinced that the kids are sneaking around and getting into bed together when you are asleep. But that is ungenerous of him. These friends are guests in your home and should be treated as such. And your husband might keep in mind that should these friends turn out to be his future sonsin-law or daughters-in-law, reacting poorly to them now could set him up for future difficulties. Dear Annie: May I vent a little about the extended family of a caregiver? My relatives live out of state and rarely visit. This is for them: Please dont tell the primary caregiver what to do and how to do it. You dont have all the details, and you do not control every situation. Good caregivers are proactive and vigilant. You are loved, and your opinion matters. But unless you are a medical expert in these areas, please listen rather than resort to preconceived ideas. When you do visit, dont say, I guess you get the day off. There is never a day off, especially if the loved one is in the hospital or rehab and preparations need to be made for what happens after they are discharged. And while you may think its too early to discuss assisted living or nursing home care, some of those places have waiting lists. Its never too early. You may want to have a light, enjoyable visit, but some things still need to be handled, even unpleasant things. Life doesnt get put on hold simply because youre in town. If you want to take over the full-time care, you are more than welcome. Otherwise, please respect the primary caregivers role and responsibilities, and keep your interference with the medical providers to a minimum. You have no idea what it is like to have a family plus elderly parents to care for, with all the activities, medical appointments, medications and therapies to coordinate and facilitate. You purposely choose to live states away. Please dont fly in and out telling me what to do. Serving as a primary caregiver is an honor and a privilege. It carries with it a tremendous responsibility, as well as accountability and self-sacrifice. I do it out of love, and I want what is best for them. Walk a Mile in My Shoes Dear Walk: We have heard this plea many times and know you speak for thousands of devoted caregivers. But we also know that many relatives who live away need to feel as if they are contributing and often react by making demands and trying to take over. Sometimes, all they need is a task to perform that will make them feel they are needed in a concrete way. We hope that helps. Dear Annie: Like Heartbroken Mom in Connecticut, I, too, left a controlling husband, and it created conflicts at family gatherings. Our solution was to have two birthday parties. My ex could attend one with whomever he wished, and I attended the other. The grandchildren loved the idea of having two birthday parties. Over time, some of the conflicts lessened, but they never completely stopped. Sometimes they just cant let go.
