Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion on demand. Tuesdays event, sponsored by Citrus County Right to Life, was both a time for participants to mourn the more than 55 million abortions performed since 1973 and a time to uphold their view on the sanctity of life. Every prayer, song and speech proclaimed the message that life is precious and abortion is tragic. We come today with hope and with broken hearts, prayed the Rev. Kevin Brian in his invocation. We have hope that hearts will be changed, that laws will be changed and the lives of the unborn will be protected. Cindy Devine, director of the Pregnancy & Family Life Center in Inverness, said her ministry has been quietly supporting families in Citrus County for 30 years, encouraging people to choose life, giving them resources and life skills training as they raise children even great-grandparents who are raising their greatgrandchildren. I bring a message of hope and encouragement, she said, citing a Jan. 14 Time magazine cover story that announced, years ago abortion rights activists won an epic battle with Roe vs. Wade and theyve been losing ever since. To the applause of those in attendance, Pro-lifers mark anniversary Roe v. Wade decision turns 40 MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Cookie Plaisted holds her 7-month-old grandson, Nathaniel Gibson of Homosassa, Tuesday afternoon as the Roe v. Wade memorial ob servance starts on Courthouse Square in Inverness. Citrus County Right to Life held the memorial that marks the Supreme Courts decision 40 years ago to legalize abortion. Mrs. Plaisted said it was important for her to bring her grandchild to the memorial, because she and her husband, Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted, adopted the babys mother many years ago. She could have been aborted, she said of her daughter. But she was put up for adoption and now we have our daughter and a beautiful grandson. See LIFE / Page A2 A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerVideo of a 2009 traffic stop involving a purported concealed weapon permit holder and a sheriffs deputy is creating quite a buzz online and has the deputy facing an agency inquiry. In the 6-minute 41-second video on YouTube, veteran Citrus County Sheriffs Deputy Andy Cox is seen stopping a motorist for an expired tag. When the driver who had stepped out of his van and accessed his wallet was asked for his registration and proof of insurance, he turned and reached back into the vehicle. Thats when Cox noticed a holstered handgun sticking out from around the mans waist. Cox, in a quickly changed tone, ordered the man to put his hands on the van, then reasserted: Put your hands right there or Ill shoot you in the (expletive) back. Cox then promptly ordered the man to the ground with profanity-laced commands. The man also could be heard telling the deputy he had a concealed/carry permit. Coxs answer was he didnt care. In audio, Cox later could be heard telling the man he would be charged with brandishing a firearm, and said the man never told him he had a permit for the pistol. While both the man and a female companion advised he had a permit, the comments came after the man had exited the van and his firearm was seen by Cox. Cox and the man disagreed on the deputys assertion he brandished a firearm, which showed under his shirttail when he reached into the van. According to CCSO spokeswoman Heather Yates, Cox has been placed on administrative duty and an internal affairs Traffic stop video triggers inquiry Deputy investigated in concealed weapons incident See INQUIRY / Page A4 M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Citrus County officials are not happy with Progress Energy Floridas latest salvo on property taxes, but at least they know where the company stands. That was the sentiment expressed Tuesday when county commission Chairman Joe Meek noted last weeks letter from Progress Florida President Alex Glenn said the company would pay no more than $19 million and potentially much less in property taxes next year regardless of the property appraisers assessments. Glenn sent the letter to Meek, Superintendent of Schools Sandra Himmel, Property Appraiser Geoff Greene and Sheriff Jeff Dawsy. All four are preparing a joint response; Meek said early Tuesday evening he expects the response to be sent today to Glenn. Progress and its parent company, Duke Energy, are embroiled in a dispute over 2012 property taxes. Progress paid $19 million about 60 percent of what the county said it owes. The company filed suit against Greene over his assessment of pollution-control equipment installed in 2009 at the companys coal-burning plants north of Crystal River.

At the second session to analyze the county budget,County Administrator Brad Thorpe was scheduled to present the forecast regarding human services, economic environment and culture and recreation.But first, he dealt with an issue raised at the previous meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) by Commissioner Scott Adams. The subject was general fund spending per capita. As part of our rule, when a commissioner brought up a question, we would try to answer that question at the next board meeting, Thorpe began. Cathy Taylor, director of the Management and Budget Department, said the county participates in an annual survey with other Florida counties and can show how it compares to other counties. We participate in an annual survey and Leon County is the leading agency in that, Taylor said. Leon Countys survey shows the net budget per capita and the staff per thousand for each of Floridas 67 counties. With $870 allocated for spending on each resident and 7.62 county employees per 1,000 residents, Citrus County ranked the 17th lowest-spending county in the state. They use a net budget, Taylor explained about how Leon County calculated its data. Thats all the personnel costs, plus all the operating costs in the county. They subtract out the capital and the reserves. Taylor said Leon County Commissioners debate spending per resident Adams takes issue with calculation method Scott Adams See DEBATE / Page A2 NATIONAL NEWS: Shootings A 15-year-old charged with shooting his family planned to do more, but did not./ Page A12 LOCAL NEWS: CourtroomsCanines calm kids in stressful settings such as court./ Page A3

was looking at day-to-day operating as a cost to run. Adams questioned why the figure for Citrus County was not higher as the current total county budget is $231,773,880, which comes out to be $1,655 per person. Thats sheriffs department, clerk of court, BOCC. Its not just ad valorem taxes, Taylor said. Our total budget includes all the enterprise funds, the reserves, bond proceeds. What were spending to operate each day this gives us that picture. Adams came back to the expenditure-per-resident question again, saying it appeared to him that the county had higher expenses than shown in the study. Let me take a stab at it, said Commission Chairman Joe Meek. What we are doing there is we are looking at the per capita for general fund. The $1,600 figure that you are referencing is taking the total budget that includes enterprise funds and everything and dividing it by the number of people in the county to give you a per capita cost. The problem with that and why I believe that is not correct is what we are doing now is we are mixing apples and oranges. For example, when the county purchased a utility system in 2008, Meek said, for about $50 million, it was a revenue generator that not everyone in the county pays for, only residents who are county water and sewer customers. But it was lumped into the total budget cost. When you add that in and divide it by the number of people, that gives you a false per capita cost of local government, Meek said. That utility is a revenue generator and an enterprise fund. The cost isnt borne by every one of the taxpayers; it is borne by the users of that system. Meek said a better way to determine the cost per capita figure would be to take the general ad valorem property tax portion of the budget and divide that by the number of people in the county. The cost of the utility could be divided by the number of its users for cost per capita determination. If we combine all of the costs together and simply divide it by the number of people in the county, thats giving us a false reading on the per capita cost of local government, Meek said. Adams disagreed. You can say that, but its sitting on the books, Adams said. Its either a liability or an asset. If we want to pull it out and put it by itself, thats fine. But at the way it is calculated in the budget, it has to be figured that way. Meek replied that he disagreed with Adams. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said that although the Leon County survey was considered a standard, counties could not always be compared to other counties because they operate differently. Commissioner Dennis Damato said many of the counties that ranked lower than Citrus are considered financially disadvantaged by the state and receive additional funding from the state for support of general services. That puts Citrus County very, very well positioned in net budget per capita, staff per thousand, Damato said. Based on the four counties that surround us, it costs more to live there and I think we have way more to offer.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer @chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Special to the ChronicleCRYSTAL RIVER Rakes are ready for One Rake at a Time lyngbya cleanup from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at Hunter Springs Park in Crystal River. This will be the One Rake at a Time projects first big public lyngbya cleanup for 2013. Sponsored by the Kings Bay Rotary, local volunteers will be joined by 41 college students and staff from Darton State College in Albany, Ga. The students will be here for the weekend, learning about manatees. Everyone is invited to join in the effort to rake lyngbya algae from Kings Bay. High school students can earn community hours. People are needed on both the land and in the water as tons of noxious lyngbya algae are removed. Lyngbya robs oxygen from the water and, in turn, destroys fish, manatee and human habitat as it smothers spring vents and beneficial plants that provide food for the fish and manatees, according to Art Jones, project leader. Lyngbya likes dirty water, and it hordes nutrients, according to Jones. It can be prevented in the future as people learn to use less fertilizer, or not fertilize at all, and as they move to non-spray irrigation so water is not lost to evaporation. Dilution is a solution to pollution, Jones said. A healthy, full aquifer is the best line of defense against salt water incursion and pollution. People can also help by having septic tanks inspected every five years and by hooking up to municipal sewer systems where available, according to Jones. Landscaping should use native or drought-tolerant trees, shrubs and ground cover and drip irrigation methods. Golf courses and farmers should use best practices, he added. Participants should bring water shoes or old sneakers that can get wet, sit-on-top kayaks, and pitchforks or spring-steel leaf rakes.

Project targets invasive algae Devine went on to say that in 1992 the Supreme Courts ruling in Planned Parenthood vs. Casey gave states the right to regulate restrictions on abortions. Since then, even though Planned Parenthood is the single largest abortion provider in the U.S., most abortions are performed in independent clinics. As a result of the ruling, states continue to pass legislation making it increasingly burdensome for these clinics to operate, forcing many to close, she said. Between 1982 and 2008 there was a 39 percent decrease in abortion providers, Devine said. From 1982 to 2008, there was a 33 percent decrease in the abortion rate. Also, from 1982 to 2008 there was a decrease in doctors willing to perform abortions. According to information from The Associated Press, since 2010, GOPdominated state legislatures have passed more than 130 bills intended to reduce access to abortion, including mandatory counseling and ultrasound for women seeking abortions, bans on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, curbs on how insurers cover abortions and regulations for abortion clinics. For 40 years since Roe v. Wade weve been making a difference, she said. The news Tuesday was not all positive, however. Keynote speaker Donna Davis, a member of Citrus County Right to Life, said the cumulative effect of 55 million abortions has been devastating to the entire nation. Fifty-five million are dead, but hundreds of millions are wounded, she said. Its the profound violation of women, body and soul; the grief of grandparents and family members who will never know the joy these babies would have brought. Add to that the absence of prayer in the public forum, she said. Im convinced that this monumental removal of joy, infusion of sorrow and restriction of prayer as an antidote has resulted in the severe imbalance in the mental health of America We are witnessing a time in America when our collective pain is so great and theres an ever-escalating eruption of violence throughout society. Davis said the battle is far from over, and the greatest weapon in the fight is personal and corporate prayer and being prepared to answer the pro-choice arguments with knowledge and a soft reply. No one was ever won over to the pro-life movement by a shouting match, she said. Peter Reguin, grand knight from the Knights of Columbus Council 6391, said the Knights of Columbus organization is committed to raising money to buy ultrasound machines for pregnancy centers. When they see its a baby, they change their minds, he said. So, when you see the Knights of Columbus out raising money, thats what its for.

SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS The trial of the man accused of killing his father in an August 2010 crime spree is set to begin today in Circuit Judge Ric Howards courtroom. John William Campbell, 39, is facing first-degree murder charges in the death of his father, John Henry Campbell, 68, strongarm robbery, burglary, theft and dealing in stolen property. The prosecution is seeking the death penalty. A 12-person jury with two alternates was selected Tuesday from a juror pool of 50 candidates. Prosecutors in the case are Pete Magrino and Rich Buxman. Campbell is represented by public defenders Michael Lamberti and Devon Sharkey. The trial is set to begin at 8:30 a.m. Campbell is facing additional charges in Hernando County for allegedly crashing his vehicle into a Citrus County sheriffs deputys vehicle during a high-speed chase near the Hernando-Citrus line. The deputy was not in the squad car at the time and suffered minor injuries, but Campbell is said to have intentionally crashed his vehicle into the parked car. Officials believe between Aug. 5 and 11, Campbell committed several crimes before it all ended in the high-speed chase Aug. 11 on U.S. 19, in which he was hurt and transported to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment. Campbells fathers body was discovered Aug. 10 in a doublewide home they reportedly shared at 3707 E. Nugget Lane in Inverness. Authorities suspect Campbell was involved in an attempted robbery at the Lowes store near Inverness, also on Aug. 10. Campbell is believed to have robbed the Walgreens on State Road 44 on Aug. 5 and a Family Dollar store on U.S. 41 on Aug. 7, both in Inverness. According to investigators, Campbells fathers death was caused by a sharp, hatchet-like instrument they found in the home. The medical examiners report said the elder Campbell died from multiple chop and blunt-force head injuries. In September 2010, a grand jury indicted Campbell of first-degree murder in his fathers death. In November 2010, Magrino told the court he was seeking to terminate Campbells life by asking for a death penalty prosecution. Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925. John Campbell trial begins today. Group uses dogs in courtroom to calm stressed kids E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerA fter children endure traumatic events, testifying in court to the circumstances can be terrifying. They endure strangers in suits and ties inquiring about experiences that range from unpleasant to horrific. To counteract stress for the children, there is Courtroom Dogs for Kids Inc., a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that provides registered and trained therapy dogs that serve as calming companions to youths who have been traumatized and have been ordered to testify in court. The Guardian ad Litems really like the effect the dogs have on the kids, said Joanne Peters, CEO and founder of Courtroom Dogs for Kids. The kids are more relaxed and it helps bring their stress level down. When you ask them a question they are more relaxed and are able to more clearly disclose what they need to disclose. Once the children testify in court, they are escorted out and given the opportunity to bond with a dog. A lot of times the children do not need to hear whats going on, Peters said. They do not need to know what their parent or caregiver has done. So we will take the children out into the hallway and let the children spend time with the dogs. That way the adults can get their adult business taken care of and the kids can be with the dog. Established in November 2010, Courtroom Dogs for Kids has been working with children advocacy centers, such as Jessies Place, and the Guardian ad Litem program in addition to the Citrus County Courthouse. When the children are brought to the advocacy center, they are traumatized already, said Lorraine Clark, vice president of Courtroom Dogs for Kids Inc. Then they have to go through the examinations, forensics and questioning. Both therapists have said What a difference the dogs make, Peters added. The kids dont come in all crazy. By the time they get into the therapy, they have had time to walk the dogs, patted the dogs, read to them. Currently, Courtroom Dogs for Kids has 14 diverse teams handler and dog(s) that assist daily at the courthouse or advocacy centers. Dogs and handlers are required to have an extensive criminal background check, FBI fingerprint test and rigorous training for the dogs. Peters said not every dog is a therapy dog and not every therapy dog is a courtroom dog. We are always observing the dogs to make sure that they are comfortable with kids pulling on them, Clark said. The handlers are also trained that they are an advocate for their dog. You need to watch your dog. If your dog looks uncomfortable or is having a bad day, then they need to be taken away. You dont want your dog to be stressed or uncomfortable. A negative experience in a childs life can become positive. When we feel comfortable with the children with the dogs, we might hand them the leash to walk the dogs in the building, Peters said. It is such an unusual thing for them for someone to be positive. Volunteers and donations are needed. For information, call 352-503-7175 or visit www. courtroomdogsforkidsinc.com.

Greenes assessment and the companys view of the equipments value is about $1 billion. Progress is the countys largest taxpayer, accounting for about 26 percent of the tax base. Glenn said he wanted to put county officials on notice that the company would pay no more than $19 million for its 2013 property taxes, and up to $9 million less than that if Progress decides this summer to permanently retire its nuclear plant at the power complex. Meek said he disagreed with Glenns position to state the companys property tax payment long before Greene completes an assessment of the energy complex. It shows a disregard for a tax system and a tax structure, Meek said. That is disturbing and unusual. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said the silver lining in Glenns letter is the county commission and citizens know what to expect as they prepare the 2013-14 budget. The days of relying on Progress Energy to pay 26 percent of the taxes are over, he said. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said the Progress issue gives county officials fuel to find revenue sources other than traditional property taxes. We dont have a spending problem, she said. We have a revenue problem. Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com.

C10 Tax Deed Notices . . . . . . . . . C10 investigation is under way. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office is aware of the video involving Deputy Andy Cox making a traffic stop and subsequent arrest, according to a statement from the agency. We have opened an internal affairs investigation and Deputy Cox has been placed in an administrative position while the investigation is conducted. According to CCSO, the internal affairs investigation was opened on Jan. 15, 2013. Cox was hired as a CCSO deputy in October 2006. The video, which had generated 24,157 hits by Tuesday afternoon, was uploaded Jan. 9. Comments on YouTube about the video have kindled passions about everything from issues regarding the Second Amendment to overexuberance by law enforcement personnel. Meanwhile, some faulted the man for not telling Cox from the outset that he had a gun on him. At this time, since the investigation is ongoing, we cant go into specifics, CCSO officials said. Officials say investigations typically take about 45 days to complete. While arrests are public record, the agency would only acknowledge that the man was arrested and refused to provide the arrest report, claiming it is an open and active Internal Affairs investigation.

on its power and was in the process of charging when the fire ignited, a source familiar with the investigation of the 787 fire in Boston told The Associated Press. The plane had landed a short time earlier and was empty of passengers, although a cleaning crew was working in the plane. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasnt authorized to speak publicly. The Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order Wednesday temporarily grounding the six 787s belonging to United Airlines, the lone U.S. carrier operating Boeings newest and most technologically advanced airliner. The Japanese carriers already had grounded their 787s, and airlines and civil aviation authorities in other countries followed suit, shutting down all 50 Dreamliners that Boeing has delivered so far. Boeing said Friday it will stop delivering new 787s to customers until the electrical system is fixed. However, production is not stopping. The plane is assembled in Everett, Wash., and North Charleston, S.C. The aircraft maker has booked orders for more than 800 of the planes from airlines around the world attracted by its increased fuel efficiency. Associated PressWASHINGTON Its likely that burning lithium ion batteries on two Boeing 787 Dreamliners were caused by overcharging, aviation safety and battery experts said Friday, pointing to developments in the investigation of the Boeing incidents as well as a battery fire in a business jet more than a year ago. An investigator in Japan, where a 787 made an emergency landing earlier this week, said the charred insides of the planes lithium ion battery show the battery received voltage in excess of its design limits. The similarity of the burned battery from the All Nippon Airways flight to the burned battery in a Japan Airlines 787 that caught fire Jan. 7 while the jet was parked at Bostons Logan International Airport suggests a common cause, Japan transport ministry investigator Hideyo Kosugi said. If we compare data from the latest case here and that in the U.S., we can pretty much figure out what happened, Kosugi said. In the case of the 787 in Boston, the battery in the planes auxiliary power unit had recently received a large demand John Fredlund, 60BEVERLY HILLSMr. John Erik Fredlund, age 60 of Beverly Hills, Florida, died Sunday, January 20, 2013 at Seven Rivers Medical Center in Crystal River, FL.

Overcharging batteries eyed in 787 mishaps Associated PressWASHINGTON As 21st century technology strains to become ever faster, cleaner and cheaper, an invention from more than 200 years ago keeps holding it back. Its why electric cars arent clogging the roads and why Boeings new ultra-efficient 787 Dreamliners arent flying high. And chances are you have this little invention next to you right now and probably have cursed it recently: the infernal battery. Boeing is the first company to make extensive use in an airliner of technologys most advanced battery lithium ion. But a Jan. 7 battery fire aboard a Dreamliner in Boston, followed by a similar meltdown in Japan, led authorities around the world to ground the fleet this month, highlighting a longstanding safety problem engineers have struggled with. In 2006 and 2007, more than 46 million cellphone batteries and 10 million laptop batteries all lithium ion were recalled because of the risk of overheating, short-circuiting and exploding. Additional safety features have been installed since then on lithium ion batteries used in consumer electronics. As for the electric car industry, lithium ion batteries have proved to have two major drawbacks: They are costly, and they do not allow automobiles to go far enough between charges. Lithium ion batteries, which store more energy at a higher voltage and a lighter weight than earlier types, represent the most recent big jump in battery technology. And that took place nearly a quarter of a century ago. We need to leapfrog the engineering of making of batteries, said Lawrence Berkeley National Lab battery scientist Vince Battaglia. Weve got to find the next big thing. One reason the battery is the slowpoke of the high-tech highway is its conflicting functions. Its primary job is to store energy. But its also supposed to discharge power, lots of it, quickly. Those two jobs are at odds with each other. If you want high storage, you cant get high power, said M. Stanley Whittingham, director of the Northeast Center for Chemical Energy Storage. People are expecting more than whats possible. On the commercial market, lithium ion batteries are generally ones small enough to fit into cellphones. But to power bigger items from a Prius to a 787 they get grouped together, increasing the juice they store and provide. That also increases the safety risk, experts say. The lithium ion battery that caught fire in a Boeing 787 weighed 63 pounds and was 19 inches long. You cant get around the fundamental thing is that lithium ion batteries are stuffed full of flammable liquid, Whitacre said. Even one-in-a-million problems with lithium ion batteries can result in many fires because there are billions of them in use now. Lithium ion batteries are more dangerous because their electrolyte, the liquid that allows ions to move between electrodes in the battery, is more flammable than the substance in older type batteries. Those older types include the lead-acid batteries in most cars and the nickel cadmium batteries often in video equipment and power tools. What holds back energy tech? The infernal battery

Associated PressDAVOS, Switzerland As high-powered CEOs flock to the snowy Swiss resort of Davos, they are loaded down with baggage not just skis and iPads but concerns about the global economy, public mistrust, disappearing jobs and a heap of other challenges. New survey results Tuesday showed a steady drop in the number of CEOs worldwide who are very confident that their companies will grow this year. The number fell from 48 percent in 2011 to 36 percent this year. Amid this pessimism, most of them are carefully sticking to a few investments in tried-and-true markets, according to the survey by accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Most are saying that the global economy will stay about the same for the next 12 months. So, not encouraging, maybe not discouraging, but clearly thats affecting their outlook for their own companies growth prospects, PwC chairman Dennis Nally told The Associated Press in an interview. The degree of confidence across the board is really down, regardless of whether youre in a developing market or a developed market, he said. It is down even in highflying economies like China and Brazil. The most upbeat country was Russia, where 66 percent of CEOs are very confident of revenue growth in 2013, Nally said. He called the survey results a strong message to governments that they must fix economic problems, including disputed regulations, government deficits and tax issues. All of those are impacting CEOs levels of confidence to really deal with their businesses on a goforward basis, he said in the PwC Lounge, an ultrachic Davos party room with white sofas and chairs and orange and red flowers. Uncertainty about tax and spending policies is at the root of the gloom, said John Veihmeyer, CEO of accounting firm KPMGs U.S. operations. I think we have an opportunity for the U.S. to lead the world onto a path of stronger economic footing and very robust economic recovery over the next five years, Veihmeyer told AP Its not going to be easy. Theres going to be pain and sacrifice. Nearly a quarter of the CEOs surveyed plan further job cuts yet more than half of them say they have trouble finding people with the right job skills. Neely worries about a lost generation of job seekers and encourages young people to focus on gaining skills that are in demand. Heading Tuesday into the glitzy World Economic Forum, where over 2,500 members of the political and corporate elite will debate the worlds top economic issues this week, many participants said their top worries are prospects for social unrest, a U.S. recession, cyberattacks, natural disasters and a breakup of the 17-nation eurozone. Business leaders also recognize that public trust in corporations including CEOs is waning. The survey questioned 1,330 corporate leaders in 68 nations between September and December, and more than half said they plan to do more to build an ethical culture at their firms this year. Weve got to start to rebuild that trust, Nally said. I think it starts with your own organization, quite frankly, and I think it starts with the CEO, the tone at the top. What does an organization stand for? What is its purpose? he said. Is it just to deliver short-term profitable results to the shareholder group? he asked. Or is there a greater purpose in terms of the role of business in society today? Associated PressNEWARK, N.J. The U.S. Department of Justice filed notice Tuesday that it is joining a lawsuit by sports leagues and the NCAA to stop the state from allowing sports gambling, setting the stage for a fight next month over the constitutionality of a 21year-old federal statute. Tuesdays filing was expected after a federal judge last month declined New Jerseys motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the NFL, the NHL, the NBA, Major League Baseball and the NCAA. The state had argued the leagues and the NCAA, college sports governing body, couldnt prove they would be harmed if it allowed sports gambling since all enjoy unprecedented success despite the existence of legal wagering in Nevada and more widespread illegal sports gambling. Now, the focus will turn to the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, a 1992 statute that prohibited sports gambling in all but four states: Nevada, where bettors can gamble on games individually; and Oregon, Montana and Delaware, which were allowed to offer multi-game parlay betting. Attorneys for New Jersey claim the law usurps the authority of state legislatures and treats the states unequally by grandfathering in some states where sports betting already was allowed. The leagues attorneys have termed the constitutional challenge specious and have argued that the Constitutions commerce clause doesnt require uniformity in its application to different states. They referred in one court filing to Republican Gov. Chris Christies signing of a sports betting bill last year as a blatant violation of federal law. In Tuesdays filing, lawyers for the Department of Justice asked U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp to give them until the end of next week to file responses to the states constitutional challenges. Oral arguments in the case are scheduled for Feb. 14 in Trenton. The leagues and the NCAA sued last summer after Christie signed a law that would allow sports wagering at Atlantic City casinos and the states horse racing tracks. Games involving New Jersey colleges or college games played in New Jersey would be exempted.A8 W EDNESDAY, J ANUARY23, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Eighth Annual Purple Heart Ceremony Florida National Guard Armory, Crystal River Saturday, February 9, 2013, 11:00 a.m. Commemorating the proud legacy of the Purple Heart & Honoring Floridas fallen heroes of the Global War on Terror and Americas wounded warriors All Gave Some, Some Gave All Hosted by The combat wounded Patriots of Aaron A.

All my love, Barbara Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio The lawyer for one of two high school football players charged with raping a 16-year-old girl wants to delay the trial and also have it moved out of an eastern Ohio city that has received international attention. Attorney Brian Duncan filed the motion Friday on behalf of Trent Mays, who is scheduled for trial next month in juvenile court in Steubenville. Duncan expects to file another motion this week to move the trial. An attorney for the other defendant, MaLik Richmond, filed similar motions earlier this month, as well as a request to close the trial to the public. The case has gained global attention through the work of bloggers and hacker-activists who allege other football players should be charged but are being protected by a cover-up. A video and photo posted online also have drawn attention to the case. In a statement earlier this month, Duncan acknowledged the role of social media in in the case but again urged people not to draw conclusions. We certainly recognize that the video, photograph, alleged facts, and surrounding circumstances set forth on the Internet and portrayed in the media would cause even the most optimistic of man to call into question the defendants presumption of innocence, Duncan said in the Jan. 9 statement. We must be careful in this age of social media to ensure that the words set forth do in fact portray the actual story, he said. The 12-minute video shows a student who was not involved in the attack but apparently aware of it joking about it while others in the background chime in. In a photograph, the two defendants are apparently seen carrying the girl by her arms and legs, according to the transcript of an October hearing where a judge heard testimony before deciding whether the teens should be charged. At that hearing, three other high school students testified to seeing the attack on the girl from nearby Weirton, W.Va. Two of those students also recorded a video and photograph of the attacks on their phones, but deleted the images shortly afterward. Those students were told at the hearing that they would have been charged had investigators found the images. In letters to attorneys for each of the three students last fall, prosecutors said while each student may not have conducted himself in a responsible or appropriate manner, his behavior did not rise to the level of criminal conduct, according to copies of the letters obtained by The Associated Press through a records request. Prosecutors added in each case that, we will not prosecute your client for his actions on the weekend of the alleged attack in August, the letters said.

Interest rates Associated PressStrong earnings reports from big U.S. companies helped push the Dow Jones industrial average to its eighth gain in nine sessions Tuesday. DuPont, Verizon and Travelers Cos., three of the 30 stocks that make up the Dow, closed higher after reporting their financial results for the final quarter of 2012. The Dow closed up 62.51 points, or 0.5 percent, at 13,712.21. The Standard & Poors 500 index gained 6.53, or 0.4 percent, to 1,492.51. The Nasdaq composite average rose 8.47, or 0.3 percent, to 3,143.18. The indexes spent the morning edging between small gains and losses. Around noon, the Dow rose decisively and stayed higher for the rest of the day. Earnings have been strong enough this season to drive a five-day winning streak for the S&P 500 and put the Dow on track for its biggest monthly percentage gain since October 2011. Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago, said traders have been encouraged by the number of companies beating analysts profit expectations. Granted, we have diminished expectations, but companies are doing a decent job beating on the profit side, he said. The revenue side of the equation has been weaker, Ablin said, preventing a stronger updraft for stocks. Traders might gain more confidence if companies reported stronger demand from emerging markets and Europe, he said. The U.S. has been pulling this wagon by itself for the last couple years, and now were facing some austerity measures. We could certainly use a hand, he said. Among the Dow components that reported early Tuesday, chemical and bioscience company DuPont reported a sharp drop in net income, but the results still beatanalysts forecasts. DuPonts stock closed up 83 cents, or 1.8 percent, at $47.82. Johnson & Johnson said higher sales helped boost its profit from a year ago, when results were weighed down by a slew of one-time charges. However, the companys 2013 profit forecast fell short of analysts estimates. J&J dropped 54 cents, or 0.7 percent, to $72.69. Verizon Communications Inc. rose after the countrys biggest wireless carrier said it activated a record number of new devices on contract-based plans in the fourth quarter. Verizons net loss widened on restructuring and pension costs and expenses related to the cleanup from superstorm Sandy. Its stock rose 40 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $42.94. A fourth member of the Dow 30, property and casualty insurer Travelers Cos., rose strongly after it said core income categories like investments and premiums written rose. Net income fell because of claims filed in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. The stock shot up $1.64, or 2.2 percent, to $77.95, an alltime closing high. Travelers has risen nearly 27 percent over the past 12 months. Tech behemoths Google and IBM reported solid earnings gains after the marketclosed. Tech companies results are being watched closely because many of them have warned about a weak fourth quarter. Google soared after saying its fourthquarter earnings rose 7 percent as online advertisers spent more money in pursuit of holiday shoppers. The stock gained $29.13, or 4.1 percent, to $732 in after-hours trading. IBM said its net income rose 6 percent. The stock rose $6.82, or 3.5 percent, to $202.90 in late trading. Freight rail companies are another key category at this stage in the economic recovery. Two big railroads reported after the closing bell. CSX gained 74 cents, or 3.6 percent, to $21.55 in afterhours trading. Norfolk Southern rose $1.05, or 1.6 percent, to $67.99. Stocks rise as tech, industrial earnings roll in Google soared after saying its fourth-quarter earnings rose 7 percent as online advertisers spent more money in pursuit of holiday shoppers. The stock gained $29.13. Business HIGHLIGHTS Apple to announce Q4 earnings todayNEW YORK For many investors, Apples best days are behind it. Competitors are catching up, they believe. The companys doubters have backed their conviction with billions of dollars. Last week, the stock fell below $500 for the first time in 11 months. Since Apples stock peaked at $705.07 on Sept. 21 the day of the iPhone 5s release it has fallen nearly 30 percent, cutting Apples market capitalization by nearly $200 billion. On Wednesday, Apple still the worlds most valuable public company gets a chance to rebut the skeptics as it reports financial results for the holiday quarter. But the report could also end up confirming beliefs that the company is losing its edge as an arbiter of innovation and a pacesetter in sales growth. Walmart warns suppliers of stricter measuresBENTONVILLE, Ark. Walmart Stores Inc. has alerted its global suppliers that it will immediately drop them if they subcontract their work to factories that havent been authorized by the discounter. Walmarts stricter contracting rule, along with other changes to its policy, comes amid increasing calls for better safety oversight after a deadly fire at a Bangladesh factory that supplied clothing to Walmart and other retailers. The fire in late November killed 112 workers at a factory owned by Tazreen Fashions Ltd. Walmart has said the factory wasnt authorized to make its clothes. In a letter sent Tuesday to suppliers of its Walmart stores as well as Sams Clubs in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom, the company says it will adopt a zero tolerance policy on subcontracting without the companys knowledge, effective March. 1. Previously, suppliers had three chances to rectify mistakes. Home sales dip in December, but 2012 best in five years WASHINGTON U.S. sales of previously occupied homes dipped in December from November, in part because of a limited supply of available homes. But for all of 2012, sales rose to their highest level in five years. The National Association of Realtors said Tuesday that sales declined in December to an annual rate of 4.94 million. Thats down from a rate of 4.99 million in November, which was revised lower but was still the highest in three years. Total sales last year increased to 4.65 million. Thats 9.2 percent higher than 2011 and the most since 2007. Sales finished below the roughly 5.5 million that are consistent with a healthy market. Still, most economists say home sales are improving steadily.Delta Air Lines clings to $7 million profit in Q4MINNEAPOLIS Delta Air Lines Inc. said Tuesday that its fourth-quarter profit was nearly wiped out by superstorm Sandy and special charges. The storm forced airlines to cancel more than 20,000 flights. The impact was bigger at Delta because Sandy also slowed down operations at its new oil refinery near Philadelphia. Deltas goal in restarting the refinery was to maximize jet fuel production and reduce its fuel bill. But Sandy slowed the refinerys restart. The refinery lost $63 million for the quarter and added 7 cents per gallon to the price of Deltas jet fuel. Delta said it expects the refinery to be profitable in the current quarter.Its cowboys v. showgirls in Cokes Super Bowl ad NEW YORK Most people will be cheering for the San Francisco 49ers or Baltimore Ravens during Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3. But Coca-Cola is asking viewers to cheer for three very different groups in an interactive marketing blitz during the big game: a troupe of showgirls, a band of cowboys and a biker-style gang of badlanders all on a quest for a thirst-quenching Coke in a desert. The campaign is the worlds largest beverage makers latest attempt to capture interest of people who watch the Big Game with a tablet or smartphone nearby. Time Warner Cable wins Dodgers TV deal LOS ANGELES Time Warner Cable Inc. has won a contract to carry Los Angeles Dodgers games for at least the next two decades starting in 2014, snatching the games away from Fox Sports after this years baseball season ends, according to a person familiar with the matter. The deal has not yet been finalized, although it is to be announced within days, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity. The Los Angeles Times earlier reported the nations second-largest cable operator will pay around $7 billion to carry the games. From wire reports Associated PressMOORESVILLE, N.C. Home-improvement retailer Lowes Cos. said Tuesday that it plans to hire 45,000 seasonal workers ahead of its busy spring season, a sign that the nascent housing recovery is creating jobs. Lowes, based in Mooresville, N.C., also plans to add 9,000 parttime employees on a permanent basis. On average, seasonal employees will work 20 to 25 hours per week and the length of seasonal employment will vary. Most jobs will start in February. Some could last until September. The prolonged housing slump hurt homeimprovement stores. But now, most economists say, the housing market is recovering and the gains should continue this year. Home prices rose 7.4 percent annually in November, real estate data provider CoreLogic said last week. Thats the biggest annual increase since 2006. On Tuesday, The National Association of Realtors reported U.S. sales of previously occupied homes dipped in December from November. Lowes shares rose 45 cents on Tuesday to close at $37.44.

O PINION Page A10 WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 Port remains a loser In response to the papers editorial of Jan. 14, I would like to make some interjections to what was stated. The paper addresses what could be logical reasons to continue with the port feasibility study. But in rebuttal I would like to make some statements. That being, perhaps Mr. Thorpe may well be trying to build his rsum for future employment at the taxpayers expense. Therefore if the study shows the viability of a port, then Mr. Thorpes cost should be reimbursed. But I also like to challenge the statement of an assured viability of any paid evaluations by consultants. I contracted many of these for a large federal agency, knowing all along that whoever paid for the evaluation would usually get the answer they sought, be it a yes or no. The other point of contention is the statement the county has no one qualified to deal with the port. The statement is somewhat true but not the whole truth, as the county had a very qualified, schooltrained and experienced staffer, the only person on their staff with port experience, and they laid him off. Now to think that were going to expend more than $5,000 to train someone else to understand the workings of a port seems a bit contradictory from previous directions taken. I think most people of this county feel the port endeavor is a total waste of time and money. The undertaking of a viable channel would expend many millions of dollars long before you actually got around to constructing any port assets. And the environmental impact issues with the state and federal authorities would no doubt be tied up endlessly for years. Based upon these facts, I feel any further expenditures of money to train a port director should be at the expense of the person gaining that training. Seldom do I agree with the votes of the county commissioners, but in this case I surely do. As to the viability study itself, what has changed for a positive consideration factor since the feasibility study of the 1960s? They said it was a loser then and it is a loser now.John Cassell Homosassa A s of this writing, conspiracy flake James Tracy still has a job teaching at Florida Atlantic University, despite having stated the following: While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nations news media have described. Written on his personal blog, Tracys theory ignited international outrage, more anguish in Newtown, Conn., and uncountable demands that he be fired. But instead of canning Professor Tracy, FAU should put him on display as a lab specimen of paranoia in full bloom. Let him continue teaching his Culture of Conspiracy classes and video-stream his lectures, so that students far and wide can study this bizarre psychological phenomenon. The most disturbing of historic events from Pearl Harbor to the Holocaust, from the Kennedy assassinations to the 9/11 attacks have spawned rabid cults of doubters. The Internet has given these agitated souls what they never had before: a gathering place, where they can fantasize endlessly among their own kind. Soon after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, Tracy declared that the media coverage was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends. He called the tragedy a meticulously crafted facade and hinted that the facts were being manipulated by gun-control advocates in government! Several hundred journalists were apparently duped, or secretly in league with the antigun plotters. Included by implication in the dark cabal were the eyewitnesses, survivors, first responders, coroners, Connecticut State Police and families of the victims (if there really were any victims). What made Tracy stand out from other ranting online troglodytes was his tenured position at FAU in Boca Raton. The university administration was duly embarrassed and apologetic, but also compelled to note that Tracy had posted the rubbish on his own blog, on his own time. Within days, a queasy reality took hold of the professor himself, and he began to backpedal. In an interview with West Palm Beachs WPTV, he said: In terms of saying that Sandy Hook, the Newtown massacre, did not take place is really a simplification an oversimplification of what I said. Oh, how he must have wished that were true. Then, lurching onward: I said there may very well be elements of that event that are synthetic to some degree, that are somewhat contrived. I think that, overall, the media really did drop the ball. If youre waiting to hear Tracys version of what really happened in Newtown, dont hold your breath. He hasnt specified which aspects of the press coverage were synthetic or contrived, though he has tepidly conceded that 20 first-graders probably did die from gunfire that day in the school. Well, at least those darn reporters got something right. On-scene bedlam is part of any mass murder. Conflicting and even wrong information always gets passed along in the first frantic minutes. That happened in Newtown, just as it did in lower Manhattan in 2001. It wasnt a conspiracy at Sandy Hook Elementary; it was honest human error. Lawenforcement sources told journalists things that turned out to be inaccurate (misidentifying the shooter as his brother, for example, and stating that their mother was a teacher at the school). The mistakes were corrected within hours. In the end, the facts of the crime remain hideously simple. Twenty-six people, most of them first-graders, were shot dead by a single, heavily armed man named Adam Lanza. The blood on the walls was real, the bodies were real, and so is the lifelong heartbreak. Many believe that the pain caused to the families by Tracys blogging justifies his firing by FAU. Others, including some who are mortified by his postings, say his views should be tolerated because campuses ought to be havens of intellectual freedom. Incompetence is a separate issue. That a professor of communications is so ignorant of basic news-gathering practices is pathetic, but at this point Tracys value in the classroom is not as an instructor but rather as a case study. Hes not just another academic blowhard with scant real-world experience. Hes a bona fide conspiracy kook who appears disarmingly normal. For that reason alone hes worth observing, though it remains to be seen how many students will be flocking to his lectures. If FAU dumps him, Tracy will be a hero in the sweaty universe of anti-government paranoids, who already blame sinister forces for the professors misfortunes. These days hes keeping a low profile, ducking Anderson Cooper and hunkering in the shadows of the Internet, where no idea is too repugnant to find a fan base.

Not everyone can be a rocket scientist I n 2010, Senate Bill (SB) 4 was passed by the Florida Legislature with bipartisan support and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Crist. Hailed by many as an important step for raising education standards in Floridas Race to the Top, it added geometry, algebra II, biology, chemistry and physics to the list of required high school courses. While exempting students attending private schools, private charter schools and some virtual schools, the bill further mandates that every public high school student must prove they are college ready by demonstrating mastery of the required courses with the successful passing of a standardized end-of-course exam in order to receive an accredited high school diploma. As noted by critics, including Citrus County School Board member Thomas Kennedy, SB 4s good intentions may have negative consequences that could make it a recipe for disaster. In decreeing that all Florida public high school students must demonstrate they are college ready, SB 4 fails to consider the different talents, interests and aspirations of each student. Accordingly, the bills one size fits all edict brushes aside the reality that not every student has the motivation or ability to pursue a college path. This has raised concern among SB 4s critics that linking mastery of the bills rigorous requirements to a students capability to pass a standardized end-of-course exam to receive an accredited high school diploma carries the potential for discouraging those students not college-bound to drop out of school. With SB 4s focus entirely on preparing every high school student to be college ready, it also restrains the ability of school districts to offer those students interested in a technical or trade the careerready skills development to pursue their interests. Additionally, limited career-ready development opportunities promise to exacerbate the skills gap existing in Citrus County, as well as in other locales. Given that SB 4 exempts the private education sector from its rigorous requirements and an end-of-course exam thats the sole determinant as to whether or not a student receives an accredited high school diploma, there is a very real possibility that some students may choose private over public high schools. Such a student flight would certainly undermine public education in Florida. Society is comprised of individuals with different talents and aspirations. For society to prosper, it must have an educated citizenry capable of performing a vast array of skills to sustain and advance human organization. Accordingly, state lawmakers are urged to consider that in Floridas Race to the Top, not everyone should be required to become a rocket scientist.

Myth and fact I was appalled at the so-called cartoon on your editorial page equating assault rifle owners with Assad in Syria; a cartoon of a newspaper editor pouring gas on an orphanage fire to boost circulation would be more appropriate. In 2011, there were 323 murders involving rifles in the entire United States. This does not refer to assault rifles, but all rifles. In 2006, it was 438; in 2010, the number was 358 notice a trend here? Every year, the number of murders using rifles is decreasing, and not only that, but the total number where rifles are used compared to total murders (12,664 in 2011) is only about 2 percent. Im not saying firearms arent used in a large percentage of the murders, but those are usually handguns. More people were killed with hammers than any kind of rifle, not to mention the misnamed assault weapons. To the people wanting to register and confiscate rifles, their aim is clearly not stopping murders, or they would be after hammers, instead of rifles. Other myths promulgated by these either uninformed or intentionally misleading people are: 1. The right to bear arms should only apply to muskets. Would you argue that freedom of speech and of the press should only apply to words written on parchment with a quill pen? Of course not, the concept of God-given rights this country was founded upon was meant to be independent of technology. 2. Gun crime is lower in countries that ban firearms. Of course it is by definition there is a very low rate of shark attacks in North Dakota, but it doesnt necessarily mean its safer there than in Florida it just means there are less sharks. When you look at statistics on violent crime, the numbers are much closer, especially if you factor out the big-city gang-related homicides (where, incidentally, guns are banned). 3. Assault weapons were designed to kill as many people as possible. Actually, weapons such as the M-16 and the AK-47 were specifically designed to wound, not kill more able-bodied men are removed from the battle arena caring for wounded comrades. Thats why these rifles arent popular for hunting it usually takes repeated hits to kill a human-sized animal, unless you just happen to hit a vital area. 4. The Second Amendment was meant to apply only to the state militias, or National Guard (Which, by the way, wasnt created until 1917). In the Constitution, these phrases: right of the people peaceably to assemble, right of the people to be secure in their homes, refer to individuals, but the right of the people to keep and bear arms refers to the state does that make any sense at all? The right of Internet pornographers to exist cannot be questioned because it is Constitutionally protected by the Bill of Rights, but somehow the use of guns for self-defense is not really protected by the Bill of Rights. 5. The NRA is an extremist organization. The ACLU is good because it uncompromisingly defends certain parts of the Constitution, and the NRA is bad, because it uncompromisingly defends other parts of the Constitution. 6. We should ban highcapacity magazines for all but the police. Police usually operate in groups with backup, which is why they need larger-capacity magazines than do civilians who must face criminals alone and therefore need less ammunition whats wrong here? 7. Gun control means keeping weapons out of the wrong hands. Guess what? You have the wrong hands. Earnest J. Gallion Crystal River Coming together Gentlemen, our nation must come together soon lest we find ourselves in such a hole that the true meaning of Americanism will disappear. The following could be the beginning of this return. I was very happy this morning reading about Walmarts plan to help America and her people. As a veteran of WWII, I recall quite vividly how our people came together to defeat Japan and rebuild our country. This mornings article regarding Walmart to hire vets and buy American could be the beginning of America first, last and always. Walmart is in the middle of our economy and their profound proposal might very well be the start of bringing our country together. Walmart might also consider having our American flag flying over each store entrance and marking all Americanmade merchandise. Our nation is in serious trouble and we desperately need to come together, whether it be in our political environment or as true Americans.Glen Gunderson Homosassa O PINION C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE W EDNESDAY, J ANUARY23, 2013 A11 Prices Good Wednesday Jan. 23 through Monday, Jan. 28, 2013 *Floor Prep & Trims at Additional Cost.

Associated PressWASHINGTON More than 6 in 10 Americans now favor allowing illegal immigrants to eventually become U.S. citizens, a major increase in support driven by a turnaround in Republicans opinions after the 2012 elections. The finding, in a new Associated Press-GfK poll, comes as the Republican Party seeks to increase its meager support among Latino voters, who turned out in large numbers to help reelect President Barack Obama in November. Emboldened by the overwhelming Hispanic backing and by shifting attitudes on immigration, Obama has made overhauling laws about who can legally live in the U.S. a centerpiece of his second-term agenda. In the coming weeks, hes expected to aggressively push for ways to create an eventual pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country. The poll results suggest that the public overall, not just Hispanics, will back his efforts. Sixty-two percent of Americans now favor providing a way for illegal immigrants in the U.S. to become citizens, an increase from just 50 percent in the summer of 2010, the last time the AP polled on the question. Much of the increase in support for a path to eventual citizenship has come among Republicans. A majority in the GOP 53 percent now favor the change. Thats up a striking 22 percentage points from 2010. Associated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. The New Mexico teenager accused of gunning down five family members over the weekend ambushed his father as he returned home from an overnight shift at a rescue mission, then reloaded his rifles and planned to go to a Walmart and randomly shoot people, authorities said Tuesday. Instead, 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego texted a picture of his dead mother to his 12-year-old girlfriend, then spent much of Saturday with the girl and her family, authorities said. That evening, he went to the church where Griegos father had been a pastor, and Griego eventually confessed to killing his parents and three younger siblings. The motive, as articulated by the suspect, was purely that he was frustrated with his mother, Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston said. He did not give any further explanation. Houston said Griego had planned the shootings for at least a week, but its unclear if he ever actually went to a Walmart or why he changed his mind about continuing the attack, which occurred the same day thousands of gun advocates gathered peacefully at state capitals around the country to rally against stricter limits on firearms. The Guns Across America events were being held just after President Barack Obama unveiled a sweeping package of federal gun-control proposals. Griego told detectives he also contemplated killing his girlfriends parents, Houston said. The sheriff said he didnt know if Griegos contact with his girlfriend avoided further bloodshed. But he said she apparently knew what had happened, and officials are investigating whether she should be charged with failing to report the crime.

The officials said Tuesday the Defense Departments inspector general found the concerns about Allens 20,000 to 30,000 pages of emails and other documents from communications with Jill Kelley between 2010 and 2012 to be unsubstantiated. Allen had maintained he did nothing wrong. Cold Associated Press A thermometer shows the temperature Tuesday as a man walks to a parking garage in Buffalo, N.Y.

The citys densest neighborhoods, its favelas, blanket entire hillsides, providing most of the citys affordable housing. Now, those communities are being charted after decades of informality. Favelas find place on maps RIO DE JANEIRO Look at most maps of Rio de Janeiro. The beaches are easy to spot, as are the iconic oceanfront neighborhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema. In the middle is a vast forest. Whats less identifiable are the blank swaths with no streets, landmarks or other signs of human habitation. Those spots are, in fact, some of the citys densest neighborhoods, its favelas, or shantytowns, that blanket entire hillsides. Though theyve long provided most of the citys affordable housing, government officials have traditionally considered them eyesores and literally left them off the map, condemning millions to legal invisibility. Now, those communities are being charted after decades of informality, each route and alley outlined and their names researched. A nonprofit group run by current and former favela residents called Redes da Mare kick-started the first mapping program in the grouping of communities known as Mare with a simple but powerful goal: putting their homes on the map, with named streets, ZIP codes and official addresses. Netanyahu wins Israel vote JERUSALEM In a stunning setback, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus hard-line bloc fared worse than expected in a parliamentary election Tuesday, exit polls showed, possibly forcing the incumbent Israeli leader to invite surprisingly strong moderate rivals into his government and soften his line toward the Palestinians.

The town of Douentza had been held by Islamist rebels for four months, 120 miles northeast of Mopti, the previous line of control held by the Malian military in Malis narrow central belt. The Islamist fighters have controlled the vast desert stretches of northern Mali, with the weak government clinging to the south, since a military coup in the capital in March last year unleashed chaos.

Authorities: NM teen planned more shootings Debt-ceiling showdown Associated PressWASHINGTON Seeking to regain their budget footing versus President Barack Obama, Republicans controlling the House are moving quickly to try to defuse a potential debt crisis with legislation to prevent a first-ever U.S. default for at least three months. The Republicans are giving up for now on trying to extract spending cuts from Democrats in return for an increase in the governments borrowing cap. But the respite promises to be only temporary, with the stage still set for major battles between the GOP and Obama over taxes, spending and deficits. The first step comes Wednesday with a House vote on GOP-sponsored legislation that would give the government enough borrowing leeway to meet three months worth of obligations, delaying a showdown next month that Republicans fear they would lose. While its commonly assumed that the Treasury Department wouldnt allow a disastrous default on U.S. Treasury notes, the prospect of failing to meet other U.S. obligations such as payments to contractors, unemployment benefits and Social Security checks would also be reputationshattering. House Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders have made it plain they dont have the stomach for it. The legislation is disliked by many Democrats, but the White House weighed in Tuesday with a statement that the administration would not oppose the measure. It also appears that Senate Democrats will grudgingly accept the bill, which Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., called a big step in the right direction since the three-month GOP debt measure isnt conditioned on a dollar cut in spending for every dollar of new borrowing authority as Boehner has long demanded. The Boehner rule of 1for-1, its gone, said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. So its a good step forward and well see what happens.

C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO First, Lecanto High Schools girls basketball team tried to pressure Seven Rivers Christian School full court. It didnt work. The Panthers then tried to play half court against the Warriors. That didnt work either. It wasnt until the fourth quarter Lecanto managed to make up ground against Seven Rivers, but by then the game was decided, thanks to a third-quarter defensive stand by the Warriors that limited Lecanto to three free throws. The final score in the in-county rivalry favored Seven Rivers 57-37 and required a 14-7 fourth-quarter burst by the Panthers to make it even that close. Seven Rivers, which defeated Crystal River 58-45 last Friday, improved to 136 overall. Lecanto fell to 11-12. The girls are playing very well, Warriors coach Gary Dreyer said. Theyre working very hard on defense. Our philosophy has been to play good hard defense and it will keep you in the game. It did just that, but Seven Rivers ability to break Lecantos press to start the game proved pivotal. Aimed at disrupting Seven Rivers offense and forcing turnovers, Lecantos pressure instead resulted in easy layups and a 22-9 Warrior lead after one quarter. In the first eight minutes, Lecanto committed 11 turnovers while forcing three by Seven Rivers. Thats been the main focus of a lot of our practices, Warriors Alexis Zachar said of her teams handling opponents pressure. It got a bit better for the Panthers in the second quarter. After Seven Rivers scored the first six of the period for a 289 lead, Lecanto responded with an 11-2 run to trim it to 30-20 with 2:12 left in the half. Paige Richards hit a pair of threepointers in that run. Lady Warriors foil press from Panthers Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Novak Djokovic is really starting to get the hang of how to handle himself at the Australian Open. An expression often used Down Under Keep your shirt on is designed to discourage anyone from becoming unnecessarily overexcited. Djokovic took it literally after his 6-1, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 win Tuesday night over fifthseeded Tomas Berdych, advancing to the semifinals at an 11th consecutive Grand Slam tournament. The 2-hour, 31-minute victory took exactly half the time of his five-set, fourthround win two nights previously against Stanislas Wawrinka. In the early hours of Monday morning, Djokovic ripped his sweat-drenched shirt off and flexed his muscles, mimicking his victory celebration after the 5:53 victory over Rafael Nadal in the 2012 Australian Open final. That was acceptable at the time to the Rod Laver Arena crowd, which was still abuzz at 1:40 a.m. following five sets of high-level tennis. After the Berdych match, however, he realized there was no need to raise the roof. Djokovic calmly pumped his fist once and walked to the net; he later joked about the ice baths hed taken in between matches on the advice of local hero Lleyton Hewitt.

Hes also familiar with winning. Crystal River High School principal Mark McCoy and activities director Tony Stukes announced Tuesday the hiring of Palmetto High School defensive coordinator Nathan Varnadore as head coach. Varnadore, 28, will become the programs third head coach in four years. Varnadore will meet with coaches, players and parents Thursday and begin working at the school in the social studies department Monday. He also will take over as the boys weightlifting coach this spring. Despite his relative youth, Varnadore already possesses a variety of coaching experience, which includes trips to the postseason in five of his past six years as an assistant and defensive coach at Palmetto. His Tigers advanced to the 5A regional semifinals last season, finishing with a 9-4 record and making it to the state semifinals behind a 12-2 record in 2011. Varnadores defense was ranked No. 1 in 5A for the 2011 season while the team climbed to No. 2 in the state poll. Hes been very successful at Palmetto, where hes worked in a good program, Crystal River activities director Tony Stukes said Tuesday. He interviewed very well and was very excited about our program. I think hes going to bring some energy and great ideas. Stukes said the school received more than 50 applicants for the job and interviewed six candidates. Varnadore compared Crystal River to the Palmetto he grew up in and said the area was already on his radar as a possible future destination. Some of my best friends frequent Crystal River to fish and scallop, and hearing how great an area it is, its always intrigued me, said Varnadore, who is married with a 4-yearold son and 5-month-old daughter. I had said that if it came open, Id like to put my hat in. Crystal River went 6-4 overall last season and 4-3 under second-year head coach Greg Fowler before he was suspended and eventually relieved of his coaching duties for using inappropriate language. Interim head coach Randy Owens, a former Pirate standout in football and track, led Crystal River to a 2-1 record after Fowlers departure. The Pirates lost on a last-second field goal to District 5A-5 champion Gainesville Eastside the Friday before Fowlers suspension and were undone by a fourth-quarter comeback by 5A5 rival Dunnellon a week later on Oct. 26.

Beagan rounded out the Citrus tally in the 70th minute with the seventh goal of the game. Austin Killeen followed Beagan with two goals of his own.

Each participant will receive a goody bag with information about Alzheimers plus a subscription to a select Cond Nast magazine such as Golf Digest, Cond Nast Traveler and Bon Apptit. For information, call Lori Beiswenger at 352-726-3113. From staff reports I did the math and figured I have played golf for more than 44 years. The equipment has changed drastically since that first day when I picked out my first set of clubs in the sporting goods department of my local department store. My father and I stood in front of three sets of right-handed clubs. A set of Patty Bergs made by Wilson became my first starter set, complete with putter and red plaid bag. There was never a question about rightor lefthanded, as every set was right-handed. It did not matter I was a left-handed 8 year old. Times have changed. Golf balls also have advanced since those days. Gone are the days of surlyn and balata covers and compressions of 90 and 100. I remember how my mother had to use a certain type and specific numbered golf ball a Maxfli number 8. She believed she played her best with this ball and only this type of ball. She would be amazed at the choices of today. And maybe her handicap could have been lower if she had as many choices as we do today. Our choices now include urethane and ionomer covers. The compressions of golf balls are lower than they were 20 years ago. In those days, if you used a lower compression ball with a higher swing speed, the ball would balloon too high in the air because of the high spin rate. There are golf balls with compressions as low as 45 and as high as 90. Which one of these is right for you? Choose a golf ball that is best for your swing speed. Not sure what your swing speed is? If you drive the ball less than 200 yards, your swing speed is on the slower side. Try a golf ball with a lower compression. A lower compression golf ball will help the ball go farther. For example, the Bridgestone B330 RX has a compression of 60 to 65. This ball gives you less spin off the tee to hit straighter, yet gives you the control around the greens with your irons. This ball is a popular choice for performance similar to the Pro V1 but is geared toward the lower swing speed. The Titleist DT Solo is also a lower compression ball. A Titleist ProV1 and Pro V1x is a perfect golf ball for higher swing speeds along with the Bridgestone B330S. Check with your local golf professional to choose the right ball for you. The right golf ball is important for all levels of golfers, but it is especially important for higher handicapped golfers. Marion Walker is the general manager at Seven Rivers Golf and Country Club in Crystal River. She can be reached at marion7rivers@tampa bay.rr.com. Marion Walker MOVE WITH MARION Special to the Chronicle Marion Walker advises selecting a ball, above, to match your swing speed for the best benefits. Match swing with best ball D OUG F ERGUSON AP golf writer SAN DIEGO Based on his record alone, there could be cause for alarm the way Tiger Woods started his season. Woods never finished out of the top 10 in his season opener until his 13th season, when he was coming off reconstructive surgery on his left knee and was eliminated in the second round of the Match Play Championship. He was eliminated on the second day of the Abu Dhabi Championship in memorable fashion a late rally to seemingly make the cut with one shot to spare, only to be informed he was not supposed to get relief from an imbedded lie in sandy soil on the fifth hole. Two shots were added to his score, and Woods was on his way back with only the 10th missed cut of his career, his first outside the PGA Tour and a bad start to the year. The more important measure, however, is this week at Torrey Pines. Woods has won seven times as a pro on this track along the Pacific bluffs. Its a public course, but it feels as if he owns it. Such is his dominance at Torrey Pines that after the first round of the 2008 Buick Invitational, when Woods opened with a 67 on the South Course, a caddie standing behind the 18th green said, He just won two tournaments with one round. Sure enough, Woods won that week by eight shots, and then won the U.S. Open that summer on a mangled knee in a playoff. That was his 14th and at the moment, his last major championship. That also was his last win at Torrey Pines. He didnt play in 2009 because he was still recovering from knee surgery. He didnt play in 2010 because he was recovering from the humiliating collapse in his personal life. The last time he played Torrey Pines was in 2011, which turned out to be the worst season of his career. He was embarking on a brand-new swing, his game was a wreck and it showed. Woods went 74-75 on the weekend and tied for 44th. Where is he now? Its nice to be healthy, to be able to train and practice and do all of the things that I know I can do, Woods said Tuesday after playing the back nine on the South Course. Its definitely a very different feeling, so its nice to be back. Its nice to get out there and play a course that I know. When it comes to horses for courses, Woods is a thoroughbred at Torrey Pines. The only course comparable to his success level at Torrey would be Firestone, where he has won seven times and never finished out of the top 10 until 2010 and 2011, both times when his game was a mess. He has won seven times at Bay Hill, but thats different from the other two because Woods has seven finishes out of the top 10. Bay Hill always has been feast or famine. This has always been a pretty good benchmark, hasnt it? Geoff Ogilvy said. If he doesnt win this week, it certainly wouldnt be a disaster. Woods is getting older, and the competition is getting deeper every year. Winning is not as easy as it was. But how he plays this week could be a fair measure of his game going into a pivotal year when the balance of power has shifted to 23year-old Rory McIlroy. Woods talks a lot about the courses where he feels most comfortable, with Torrey Pines and Firestone at the top of his list. He also includes Augusta National and St. Andrews. Most telling was his last win at Torrey Pines. He was runner-up at the Masters that year, and then had arthroscopic surgery to repair some cartilage damage in his left knee that caused him to miss Quail Hollow and The Players Championship. He was getting ready for the U.S. Open when doctors found two stress fractures of the left tibia and recommended six weeks off, which he ignored. So when he showed up at Torrey Pines, the opening round was the first time he had walked 18 holes since the final at the Masters. Of his 14 majors, this was among the most remarkable, foremost because of the injury. Test at Torrey Pines Golf course is good gauge for Woods Associated Press The better measure for Tiger Woods is Torrey Pines since it is one of five golf courses accounting for more than 40 percent of his PGA Tour wins.

J AMES B LEVINS CorrespondentAfter local girls varsity soccer teams played some tough matches in their respective district playoffs last week, the real competition is only just beginning as FHSAA regional soccer quarterfinals begin today for the Crystal River Pirates, Citrus Hurricanes and Lecanto Panthers. The Lady Pirates travel to Gainesville for a 7 p.m. start against District 2A-5 champs Keystone Heights for the Class 2A Region 2 quarterfinal. Head coach Bill Reyes helped lead his team to only its third regional berth in school history last week. Im truly proud of my girls for getting to regionals for the third time in four years, Reyes said. This years senior class broke into regionals for the first time in school history four years ago and closes their careers in fitting fashion by getting to regionals again (this year). Senior Aubrie Menster made a splash in the district tournament for the Pirates by scoring the tying goal to put the Pirates in overtime against South Sumter in the semifinals. Then three minutes into OT, she scored the gamewinning goal, punching the Pirates ticket to the championship game. Seeded No. 2 in their District 2A-6 tournament, the Lady Pirates took home the consolation prize against No. 1 Trinity Catholic, which shut out and mercy-ruled Crystal River in the second half of the finals. Crystal River is one of the few teams to force a second half against Trinity Catholic, which has really turned some heads as a heavy state-title favorite in its respective class by regularly mercy-ruling its opponents in the first 40 minutes of play. If the Pirates defeat Keystone Heights today, they will face the soccer juggernaut Trinity Catholic in the semifinals. The Citrus Lady Canes meet Palatka in Putnam County at 7 p.m. for their Class 3A Region 2 quarterfinal match. Its been awhile since Citrus has been on the regional stage, and we are looking forward to making the most of it, Citrus head coach Ian Feldt said. Our upperclassmen have been waiting a long time to get here, and I expect them to be ready. A player to watch in regionals is senior Deycasha Miller, whose lone goal in the semifinals against Eustis propelled her team into the finals. Citrus, seeded No. 3 in the district, comes out of its 3A-6 district tournament as the runner-up to champ Nature Coast, which shut out the Lady Canes 3-0 in the final. The Canes went through Hernando and Eustis to get there, but couldnt muster enough shots on goal against the Sharks during the championship to take the title and earn homefield advantage for regional play. Lecanto is the only team to earn such an advantage, having come out of its district tournament as repeating 4A-4 champions. The Lady Panthers will host their Class 4A Region 1 quarterfinal today at 7 p.m. against the visiting Rideview Panthers. The Lady Panthers defeated district rival Springstead 1-0 in a nailbiter of a final. Lecanto hopes to erase the bitter aftertaste of last years regional quarterfinal loss to the Orange Park Raiders. We are excited to host another regional quarterfinal, Lecanto head coach Roselle Lattin said. Last year was a disappointment, losing in double overtime (2-1 to Orange Park). We hope to extend our season by winning the first round. Freshman Laura Hamilton answered the call for the Panthers during the district tournament last week. Hamilton scored all three goals in Lecantos two wins of the tournament (2-0 over Gainesville and 1-0 over Springstead) while teammate and fellow freshman goalkeeper Meagan Houpt produced some of her best saves of the season to ensure her team would retain its second district crown. D uring each tournament, maybe even each tennis match, things happen concerning the rules for which we players do not have a direct answer. A lot of times, it will result in calling a let, thinking that it is the right thing to do. It seems like some players still have not heard of the new rule concerning reversing out calls. We all are used to playing a let (depending on who hit what where) after correcting an out call to an in call. That has changed with the new rule the who and what are gone. No more gray area. You correct the call, you lose the point. What stays the same as always is being honest; after all, it is just a game. You can find the change in Friend at Court in part 2 of The Code, section Making Calls, paragraph 12. Out calls reversed. A player who calls a ball out shall reverse the call if the player becomes uncertain or realizes the ball was good. The point goes to the opponent and is not replayed. However, when a receiver reverses a fault call on a serve that hit the net, the server is entitled to two serves. Another question was: Who wins the point when a player hits a ball around the net post into the opponents court and opponent does not return shot? The player hitting the shot wins the point. If the opponent returns shot, the ball is in play and the point continues. It is always a good idea to carry Friend at Court in your tennis bag.

I made one under big pressure already, but I knew this was the game I had to make it; there was no other choice. The Hurricanes won the first 10-minute overtime session in terms of controlling the game while the second session was a draw. Lecantos sophomore goalkeeper, Ryan Stevens, set the tone in the penaltykick session. After giving up the first goal to Gainesvilles Grant Phillips, Stevens made back-to-back saves on Ryan Turner and Bryce Nesbit. Lecanto had a 3-1 lead thanks to Michael Summa, Jimmy Carr and Chad Howard making their goals. The drama though was just starting. Gainesvilles Zak Woodward beat Stevens while Lecanto sophomore Evan Chapman was stonewalled by Moseley. With the score 3-2 in favor of Lecanto, Ciao De Silva knotted it 3-3 beating Stevens. It was then left on the shoulders of Rice and he delivered. Rice and the four other Lecanto seniors Summa, Scott Stearns, John Swander and Luis Lieva were appreciative of the sophomores effort in the net. That is really an exciting thing, Stevens said. My saves gave the seniors another day to play and a shot at a district championship. What more can you ask for? asked Rice (Stevens) saved a penalty kick that really secured the win for us and had a shutout for 100 minutes. You couldnt ask for a better keeper. Stevens has been a goalie for seven years and Tuesday night was his first-ever appearance in a penalty-kick finish. He admitted he was a little nervous, but then settled down. After that first and second save, it gave me some confidence, Stevens said. Then it was just praying that my teammates would pull through for me. The Panthers (11-7-3) will practice this afternoon and return to Ocala on Thursday for the 7 p.m. District 4A-4 semifinal contest against the undefeated host school Forest (18-0-2). During the regular season, Forest defeated Lecanto both times 1-0. Im ready to get back and play them again, Rice said. The rest of the team is ready. We want it. We get another shot. That is all we can ask for, Lecanto head coach Doug Warren said. To be the best you have to bet the best. But Seven Rivers scored the final four of the half to lead 34-20 at the break. Then the Warriors put it away with a 16-3 third-quarter onslaught. The Zachar sisters, Alexis and Andrea, sparked the run by scoring six and four points apiece. Alexis Zachar, who scored 11 points in the first quarter, finished with a game-high 24. Andrea Zachar scored 13. Richards paced Lecanto with 19 points. We had spurts of (success with the press), but not everyone is on the same page, Lecanto coach Brittany Szunko said. Were working on getting all minds clicking at the same time. We were very spotty tonight. Were looking for a core group we can count on. Were trying to get a little more fight, a little more pride. Defender Justin Carnivale brought Citrus into halftime up by four goals with his 17th minute penalty kick goal. Citrus completely owned a very chippy Leopard team, whose one major accomplishment of the game was to disrupt the Canes from a mercy-rule victory in the first half which Citrus seemed poised to do. With strong showings in the backfield by Beagan, Carnivale and Noah MacGinnis, Hernando struggled to muster any form of an offensive threat. Citrus outshot Hernando 14-3 in the game. Goals from Citrus Jake Thatcher (48th minute), Rudy Salazar (56th minute) and Beagan in the second half put the game handily out of reach. In fact, the Canes seemed to lay back and milk their impressive lead for the last 40 minutes. Citrus head coach Phil Journey wasnt impressed with some aspects of his teams play despite the clean sheet win, but was pleased to move forward to the next challenge. We had some good passing, Journey said. We didnt play spectacular. We had some great headers lead by Tyler Beagan. Overall, it was a very mediocre game. It got us on to the next one, he added. Citrus next opponent will be the winner of the No. 4 Weeki Wachee vs. No. 5 Tavares quarterfinal game.

BOWLERS OF THE WEEK: Cheryl Shafer, 142 pins over her average, and Eddie Corbitt, 204 pins over his average. L ARRYB UGG CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER It was Ty Reynolds night and he did what he usually does on the basketball court. The 6-foot-1 Crystal River High School junior point guard scored 17 points and grabbed five rebounds, leading the Pirates to a 51-36 victory against Dunnellon. Reynolds was honored before the game after scoring his 1,000th career point in a recent game against Hernando High School. He was given the game ball. It feels magnificent, Reynolds said of scoring his 1,000th point. We played good. The first time we played, they beat us by five. I guess we showed them whos boss. Seventeen (points) is good. I try to score more to get more exposure from colleges. But I had Sam Franklin and he did well tonight. Im not going to try to force them. The Pirates coach is happy to leave the ball in Reynolds hands. He is a scoring point guard, Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman said. We want him to be a volume shooter, because Ty can create his own shots. He can take his shots off the dribble. He gets to the line. He averages getting to the line 10 times a game. He averages 22 points, seven rebounds and four assists. He is starting to get some looks from some northern schools. Hes good student, levelheaded kid. Hes a joy to coach. Reynolds had some help as 6-foot-5 post player Sam Franklin scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the non-district game. Crystal River (9-10 overall) took an 11-4 first-quarter lead as Reynolds hit six points. The Pirates went on to outscore the Tigers 15-13 in the second quarter for a 26-17 lead at halftime. Dunnellon threatened to make it a game by sinking 11 point compared to Crystal Rivers 10 points in the third quarter. Desmond Frazier and Andre Hairston hit five points apiece for the Tigers. They really play a flat man-toman, the Crystal River coach said. We struggled for awhile against the 1-2-2 defense they used in the third quarter. But the Pirates restored order in the fourth quarter, outscoring their foes 15-8. Damien Westfall led the Pirates with six points. The Pirates played somewhat cleanly, only turning the ball over six and committing nine personal fouls. The Pirates head coach loved his teams defensive play. Any time you give up just 36 points you have to be real happy, Feldman said. I told them that at halftime. They didnt get a ton of clean looks. I thought they never got into any kind of flow. We challenged shots. I thought we also limited them. Defensively, I was very happy. This team can be explosive at times. Reynolds leads Pirates past Tigers on home court J OE K ORNECKI III CorrespondentINVERNESS The Citrus Hurricanes boys basketball team defeated district opponent Brooksville Central 78-76 on Tuesday night when Kyle Presnicks basket ripped the net as time expired in the second overtime to lift the Canes to a thrilling victory. We spent a lot of the game trailing, Citrus head coach Tom Densmore said. We had to score at the end of regulation to get to overtime. It was a low-scoring game that became a high-scoring game ... and we finally put them away. We needed that district win badly. Daniel Robinson hit two free throws to give the Bears (4-14 overall, 1-6 district) a 55-53 lead with 14.3 seconds remaining in the game; however, Citrus refused to lose. Devin Pryor (35 points, 8 steals) was fouled on the arm with 0.2 seconds remaining, and he had to hit two clutch free throws under pressure to send the game into overtime. He did it, sending the game into overtime tied at 55 apiece. In the first overtime, Centrals Joey Stokes (25 points, including six 3pointers) hit a basket to give Central a 57-55 lead. He followed it with a 3pointer for a six-point lead with 2:23 remaining. From this point, the Bears appeared in control. But Citrus refused to throw in the towel. Mitchell Ellis (11 points) hit a trifecta to bring the Canes(13-7, 5-2) within three at 61-58. Robinson (27 points) put the Bears back up with a bucket to increase their lead to five. However, the Canes battled back. Pryor scored the next six points, giving the Canes the lead 64-63 with 15.7 seconds remaining. A bad Citrus foul behind the arc put Stokes at the stripe, and he knocked down all three free throws for a 66-64 Bears advantage. But Citrus struck again. When Ellis was fouled intentionally with 1.6 seconds left, he knocked down both free throws, sending the game into a second overtime tied at 66-66 all. In the second overtime, with Citrus leading 73-72, Jemarcus Hayes assisted to Robinson for the basket underneath to give the Bears a one-point lead. But Pryor struck followed with a bucket for a 75-74 lead. With the Canes leading 76-74 after an Ellis free throw, it was the Bears turn to hit clutch free throws. Robinson sunk both to knot the game at 76 apiece, setting up Presnicks dramatic gamewinning basket from the top of the key. The gym erupted in cheers, as Citrus walked off with a 78-76 victory. Presnick hit three 3-pointers in all for an 11-point total. Randy Lynn was in double figures with 11 points. Ben Janicki had six points off the bench in the first half. I just made the shot, Presnick said. I missed half the season ... and I was happy to be out there and win a game for my team. Canes hit shot to best Bears in 2OT Presnick sinks shot for Citrus to win CHS girls basketball team continues winning Citrus High School girls added another win to its overall record by beating Nature Coast 74-48 on Tuesday night in a non-district game.

Citrus (18-5 overall, 7-1 district) will play South Sumter at 7 p.m. Thursday at home. From staff reports S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO A combination of woeful shooting by Seven Rivers Christian and superior second-half rebounding and foul-shooting by Lecanto helped lift the Panthers boys basketball squad to a 53-33 victory at the Warrior gym Tuesday. Consecutive baskets by Seven Rivers freshman Zac Saxer narrowed the Lecanto (14-6) lead to 33-29 with 4:20 to play in the game, but the Warriors (9-8) who were 12-for-50 from the field and 5-of-13 at the foul line were forced to foul down the stretch and never mustered enough offense from that point on to rally its way back into the game. Meanwhile, Lecanto got seven fourth-quarter points apiece from sophomore Darius Sawyer and junior guard Thomas Vilardi (two steals) to deliver the knockout. The Warriors scored seven of the games first 10 points in the third period before a dunk by Sawyer late in the quarter kickstarted 11 unanswered points by the Panthers. We didnt do a very good job of boxing out and positioning in the second half, Seven Rivers coach Jim Ervin said. Its tough to win any game going 12-of-50 from the floor. I dont think Lecanto did anything special. It was just one of those nights where we didnt knock down open looks. We played well early and we should of had a lead at halftime, but didnt. If anyone watched the game, it was closer than a 20-point game. Sawyer, who connected on a 3, was hot from all points on the court to lead the game with 17 points. With (senior) Richie Rizollo being out, we have to rely on Darius, Lecanto coach Frank Vilardi said. Hes the next guy up for us and he did exactly what we needed him to do. Senior point guard Matt Michelet was Lecantos other double-digit scorer with 11 points, and Warriors junior Adam Gage had an off night while managing a team-high 11 points. Youve got to give (junior guard) Connor Dupler a lot of credit for how he covered Gage in the second half, Vilardi said. I thought our entire team played great defense and ended each possession with good rebounding. Seven Rivers won the battle at the boards in the first quarter and held an 11-3 advantage with a minute remaining in the opening period. But bolstered by a strong second-quarter performance by senior forward Robert Vega (10 rebounds), who had six rebounds and five points in the quarter, the Panthers bounced back in outscoring the Warriors 15-3 in the period to lead 2016 at halftime. Robert Vega played phenomenal tonight, rebounding and defending, Vilardi said. (Senior center) Geoffrey Ruiz (seven rebounds, three steals) and (sophomore forward) Brandon Burich did as well. Thats what they do rebound the ball and they did a great job. Lecanto celebrates senior night Thursday against Dunnellon at 7:30 p.m., while Seven Rivers plays at South Sumter that night. Lecanto routs Seven Rivers, 53-33

Associated Press Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Mathieu Garon eyes the puck as teammate Eric Brewer, center, takes the Carolina Hurricanes Jeff Skinner, right, out of the play during the third period of Tuesdays game in Raleigh, N.C. Garon had 36 saves in the Lightnings 4-1 win. Crystal River last made the playoffs in 2008 as a district runner-up under former head coach George Arscott, whose record was 20-12 at the school, and won a district title under Anthony Paradiso in 2007 with a 9-3 overall record. Varnadore described the Pirates as a sleeping giant. I think Crystal River has a lot of potential to go to the next level, he said. I feel well definitely contend for district titles, and my goal is for us to not just make the playoffs, but to be competitive at that level when we get there. Varnadore expects his defenses to swarm to the ball with an attacking, aggressive style. He explained his offenses will have multiple looks, citing the need to shape systems around the ability and strengths of the players. My core belief, offensively, is that you need to get the ball to your playmakers, no matter what, said Varnadore, who mentioned 6-foot-4 Pirates sophomore receiver Sam Franklin and junior standout Ty Reynolds. That helps provide excitement for the fans and it gets the most exposure for the kids and will allow us to play to our strengths. Varnadore got his start as a junior coach for Carson-Newman College, a Division II Baptist liberal arts college in Jefferson City, Tenn., where he worked under head coach Ken Sparks, a winner of more than 300 games and five national championships. At Palmetto, Varnadore operated as a recruiting coordinator with a focus on helping student athletes find a place at Division II and III colleges, which bodes well for Crystal River football players seeking to play at the next level. Im a believer that if a player has goals and works hard and does the things we ask, (he) can play in college somewhere, Varnadore said. Kids want to know how they can benefit, so you dont want to waste their time. If youre realistic from day one, theyll play hard for you.

Lighting-quick shift Tampa Bay tops Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 COACH Continued from Page B1 It was a great performance. I was hoping to have a shorter match ... just not to go over 5 hours, Djokovic said, in a comparatively subdued mood after a considerably more routine victory. Its always going to be tough against Tomas; hes an established player. He has a big game, big serve. He can compete against anyone on any surface. In the semifinals, Djokovic will meet No. 4-seeded David Ferrer. Ferrer survived a quarterfinal battle with fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro. Almagro had three chances to serve for the match, but Ferrer broke each time. A usually mild-mannered pro, Ferrer showed his aggression at times when he threatened to spike his racket and even smashed his water bottle in the changeover after hed dropped serve in a frustrating fourth set that featured eight breaks of serve. Hed never lost to Almagro in 12 previous meetings and, as the No. 1 Spaniard in the draw in the absence of 11-time major winner Rafael Nadal, felt a responsibility to reach the semis. It was (a) miracle I won this match, Ferrer said of his comeback 4-6, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4), 6-2 win. I tried to fight every point; thats my game. I always fight. Ferrer survived once in the third set and twice in the fourth when Almagro was serving for the match, but held his nerve and finally advanced to his third semifinal in the last four Grand Slam events. In the important moments, I played more consistent in my game, Ferrer said. DJOKOVIC Continued from Page B1

The father of Karate Kid actor Ralph Macchio wants to build a 3,500-foot-long zip line ride from an Adirondack mountaintop to his tourist ranch in upstate New York. The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reported that Wild West Ranch owner Ralph Macchio Sr. is proposing a $1.5 million project that includes a launch platform and tower in Lake George, N.Y., near the top of French Mountain, which Macchio owns. A swath of trees would have to be cleared along the route to carry riders down a vertical drop of 700 feet to his ranch. Riders would be driven to the top on an existing road. Some nearby landowners are concerned about visual and noise impacts. State and local agencies are reviewing the project. Macchio is hoping the attraction could open this summer.Marsalis headlines jazz festival PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Saxophone legend Branford Marsalis is headlining a jazz festival in Haiti.

SAMANTHA CRITCHELL AP fashion writer WASHINGTON Michelle Obama made it a fashion tradition Monday night, wearing a custom-made Jason Wu gown to the inauguration balls. The ruby-colored dress was a follow-up to the white gown Wu made for her four years ago when she was new to Washington, the pomp and circumstance, and the fashion press. She now emerged in velvet and chiffon as a bona fide trendsetter. I cant believe it. Its crazy, said Wu, reached at his Manhattan studio. To have done it once was already the experience of my life. To have a second time is tremendous. President Barack Obama also struck a similar style chord to his first-term inaugural balls: He wore a white tie with his tuxedo. The red halter dress was the only one Wu, who went from fashion insider to household name on this night in 2009, submitted for Mrs. Obamas consideration. He collaborated with jeweler Kimberly McDonald on the jeweled neckline. For this occasion, it had to be real diamonds, Wu said. He said he felt the dress showed how he has grown up as a designer and how Mrs. Obamas style has evolved to be even more confident. The first family headed out to inaugural festivities earlier on Monday with Mrs. Obama leading a very coordinated fashion parade in a navy-silk, checkered-patterned coat and dress by Thom Browne that were inspired by a menswear necktie. The outfit was specifically designed for Mrs. Obama, but Browne said he wasnt 100 percent sure she was going to wear it until she came out with it on at Inauguration. I am proud and humbled, he said. The rest of Mrs. Obamas Inauguration Day outfit included a belt from J. Crew, necklace by Cathy Waterman and a cardigan by Reed Krakoff, whose ensemble she also wore to yesterdays intimate, indoor swearing-in ceremony. Obama wore a blue tie with his white shirt, dark suit and overcoat. Malia Obama had on a plum-colored J. Crew coat with the hemline of an electric-blue dress peeking out and a burgundy-colored scarf, and her younger sister Sasha had on a Kate Spade coat and dress in a similar purple shade. It is an honor that Sasha Obama chose to wear Kate Spade New York, said the companys creative director, Deborah Lloyd, in an email to the Associated Press. She epitomizes the youthful optimism and colorful spirit of the brand. We are so proud to have been a part of this historic moment. Jenna Lyons, creative director of J. Crew, said it was a huge point of pride for all of us to be a part of the day as the brand was back in 2009 when the girls wore outfits by CrewCuts, its childrens label. The vice presidents wife, Jill Biden, wore a gray coat and dress by American designer Lela Rose. Mrs. Obama has worn Brownes designs for other occasions, including a gray dress with black lace overlay to one of the presidential debates last fall, and she honored him last summer at the Smithsonians Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards for his contribution to fashion. Browne made his name in modern very modern menswear, but he launched womenswear in 2011. He was in Paris on Monday, just finishing previews for his next menswear collection. The idea to use the tie fabric came to him because he was indeed designing these mens clothes at the same time, he explained. I wanted tailored for her. For me, she stands for strength and confidence, and thats what I wanted to design for her, he said. Simon Collins, dean of the school of fashion at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, said the Obamas dressed in their typical fashion: one that shows pride in their appearance. They are a stylish couple and their children look fabulous. Too many people get dressed in the dark, he said. They show its good to dress up, take pride in how you look. ... Its a wonderful example for America and the rest of the world. He also noted that the Obamas seem to understand that the fashion industry is a driving force in the U.S. economy and that its lobby is a powerful one. They dont treat fashion frivolously, he observed. The first lady is so supportive of so many American designers, Browne noted. But Collins said he was a bit surprised the public doesnt pay much attention to the presidents wardrobe. He joked that Obama should perhaps try one of Brownes signature shrunken suits the ones that show a mans ankles. At the end of the Inaugural festivities, Mrs. Obamas outfit and accompanying accessories will go to the National Archives. Fashion tradition Birthday If you want more out of life, its extremely important to elevate your sights in the year ahead. Additionally, no one should have to tell you that it takes hard work to make things happen. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You wont have to be told that duties that require your immediate attention should be given top priority. Sweeping them under the rug wouldnt give you any peace. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) A convivial atmosphere will help immensely if there is some kind of business matter that needs to be discussed with others. Find a pleasant, social setting in which to talk things out. Aries (March 21-April 19) Because youre usually such an upbeat person, merely going along with things could make you look as if youre down in the dumps. You wont be youll just be in a quiet mood. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Listen attentively to someone who always has something new to share. If you retain what you hear, chances are youll later find some effective ways to put it to use. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Itll pay to focus on endeavors that could enhance your material security. There are likely to be several constructive steps you can take if youre willing to take action. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Its OK to spend some time on the advancement of one of your primary interests, even if you have to break plans with another. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) The best way to achieve a critical objective is to keep a low profile. You need to pursue your intentions as unobtrusively as possible. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Because friends will sense your concern for them is genuine, theyll appreciate your efforts on their behalf. Sincerity is the key to a harmonious relationship. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) An objective that you couldnt achieve in the past looks like it can be attained, mostly because this time youre likely to be more flexible and tenacious in your efforts. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Youre likely to find out that some knowledge you recently acquired can benefit a close friend as much as it does you. Be sure to share it openly and honestly. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Your instincts regarding a commercial matter are likely to be a shade sharper than usual. Follow your impulses, but be sure to use plenty of logic as well. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Try to avoid an acquaintance who always takes it upon him or herself to make decisions for everybody. Youre not likely to have too much patience for this kind of behavior.

I]Z\025B^c^\025EV\\000Z\234 dd`\025d[\025HiViZh The Supreme CourtWhat Does a Justice Do? When President Barack Obama is inaugurated on Jan. 21, the person who will be giving the oath or promise, is the chief justice (or judge in charge) of the United States. This year, as at President Obamas first inauguration, that will be Chief Justice John Roberts. Justice Sonia Sotomayor will swear in Vice President Joe Biden. This week, The Mini Page learns more about the Supreme Court and what a justice does. The Supreme Court The Supreme Court is the United States highest court. The justices must decide how laws are followed and whether our laws agree with the U.S. Constitution. This is called judicial (joo-DISH-uhl) review In the United States, the Supreme Court is an appellate court. This means that the court decides cases that are being appealed after making their way through the lower courts. For example, in the mid-1960s, two high school students in Des Moines, Iowa, wore black armbands to school to protest against the Vietnam War. School officials suspended them. The students and their families sued or took legal action against the school district. They believed the First Amendment, which promises the right to free speech, protected their protest. The case was presented in the U.S. District Court, where the verdict or decision, agreed with the school. The case eventually went to the Supreme Court, which overturned or changed, the verdict. Our highest court The justices work at the Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C. The building was finished in 1935. Before moving to this building, the Supreme Court met in the Capitol. The building has one large courtroom, offices for each of the justices, a court library and offices for other workers. It also has a dining room and a gym. The seated figures on either side of the steps are titled The Contemplation of Justice and The Authority of Law. Chief Justice John Roberts (on the far right) swears in President Barack Obama at his first inauguration on Jan. 20, 2009.

They can also resign, retire or be impeached or removed from office. When a seat on the court opens, the president nominates someone to be a new justice.

There are two types of cases: \000\000s\000 criminal in which someone has committed a crime. \000\000s\000 civil or cases in which people or organizations are arguing about something. A trial verdict may be appealed to a state or federal appeals court. Someone who loses at this level may ask the Supreme Court to review the lower courts decision. The Supreme Court usually hears cases that will decide important legal principles. Out of thousands of REQUESTS\000RECEIVED\000EACH\000YEAR\f\000THE\000COURT\000 may choose about 150 of them.The first woman justice Sandra Day OConnor was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1981 by President Ronald Reagan. She was the first woman to serve on the court. Justice OConnor grew up on a cattle ranch in Arizona. She went to Stanford University and received a law degree, but many law firms did not hire women lawyers in 1952, when she graduated. Finally, in 1965, she was hired as assistant attorney general for the state of Arizona. Deciding a case On the first Monday in October of each year, the Supreme Court begins its new term. Once the Supreme Court has accepted a case for review, the two sides present their arguments to THE\000JUSTICES\016\000%ACH\000JUSTICE\000WORKS\000WITH\000 young law school graduates who study cases and discuss them with the justice. They may also examine all the records from the case and ask QUESTIONS\000OF\000THE\000PEOPLE\000INVOLVED\016 The justices meet with each other to talk about the case. Sometimes this takes months. Then they offer their opinion. At least five votes are needed to make a decision. One of the justices writes a summary of the opinion. A justice who dissented or disagreed, may write an opposing argument. Sandra Day OConnor was the first woman associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. She retired in 2006. How do they decide? The decisions of the Supreme Court can have important impacts on Americans daily lives. Supreme Court justices use the Constitution and previous court decisions to help them make judgments about current cases. In fact, they may disagree about the outcome of an earlier case and write a decision that goes against one from years before. For example, some of the Supreme Courts early decisions supported the IDEA\000OF\000hSEPARATE\000BUT\000EQUALv\000FACILITIES\000 for blacks and whites. (We call this segregation .) But in 1954, in the CASE\000OF\000"ROWN\000V\016\000"OARD\000OF\000%DUCATION\000 of Topeka, the court ruled that the doctrine (or belief) of separate but EQUAL\007\000HAS\000NO\000PLACE\016v\000HIS\000WAS\000THE\000 ruling that declared that public schools must be desegregated a decision that affected almost every family in the United States. Later, Justice OConnor served as a state senator in Arizona and as a trial judge. Next week, The Mini Page explores science with an issue about matter.

W EDNESDAY, J ANUARY23, 2013 C5 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. In Star Trek: The Next Generation, Commander Deanna Troi said, Higher emotions are what separate us from the lower orders of life. Higher emotions ... and table manners. This week we are looking at defenders leading high or low cards from various holdings. The general principle is to lead low from length when you have at least one honor in that suit. With no honor, you lead an unnecessarily high card. But, as I mentioned yesterday, the most common exception occurs when you lead partners suit. Then, if you have not supported that suit, giving length information is more important than strength information. In this example, what should West lead against two spades when he has or has not raised hearts? Should West bid two hearts? It is a borderline decision. The pluses are showing support and some values, and perhaps making Norths rebid more awkward. The minuses are the scant values and the lack of a heart honor; if North becomes the declarer, East might make a losing heart lead. If West has not supported hearts, he should lead the three: low from length. But if he has raised, he should start with the nine: top of nothing. Moving on, how can East-West defeat two spades? The defenders must take two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. And this requires getting the diamond tricks established before South can discard a diamond from the dummy on his heart jack. East should win the first trick and shift to the diamond queen, which is easier to find when West has raised hearts and led the nine to deny an honor.

I head back to America in a few weeks. I can honestly say I havent missed being home. Ive absolutely loved my stay in Europe. I feel safe and happy. The one thing Im dreading is reverse culture shock. Im afraid Ill resent my small-town college or that Ill become depressed when I get home. All of my friends will have left for their own study-abroad adventures. No one will be able to speak the Italian Ive learned and help me maintain my fluency. The foods and pastimes that Ive become fond of are nonexistent in America. My European friends say I should just enjoy the little time I have left abroad and keep positive thoughts when Im back in America, but I dont expect my reimmersion process to be that easy. How can I learn to stop living like a dead man walking and not fall into a pit of despair once I board the plane home? Pining for Rome Dear Rome : Please recognize how fortunate you are to have had the opportunity to spend time in Europe and the fact that youve enjoyed it so much. You will miss your Italian friends and Italian pasta, but try not to over-romanticize the experience. Accept it for the short-term fun it was, and know that you can certainly return whenever you can afford to do so. How well you adjust depends entirely on your attitude. Be determined to make it as positive as possible. Dear Annie: I have a problem with my parents decorating habits. They insist on putting up artwork that I did when I was a child. The dining room, living room and bedrooms all have pictures that I drew or painted from the time I was 6 until I was 17. I have repeatedly asked that they remove them, but they say they cant bear to take them down. Mind you, they have no such pictures from my sisters childhood. In fact, they dont even display pictures their grandchildren have drawn. I know its their house, but Im a 35-year-old man, and I dont want people to see this stuff and think I still do such childish collages. It also feels creepy. Its like my parents arent allowing me to grow up. My father insists on telling people I am an artist. At one time, I wanted to be, but now I am a high school teacher and proud of it. How can people take me seriously after talking to my parents? My father says being an artist is special and interesting, and he becomes unhappy if I ask him to describe me differently. Ive gotten so fed up that I dread visiting their home, especially when they have guests. What do I do? Not an Artist Dear Artist : So your parents think being an artist is ever so much more glamorous than other professions, and they prefer to fantasize about your job. Your attempts to force them to change will only make all of you miserable. Who cares what their friends think? As long as you conduct yourself appropriately and correct any misimpressions, no one will mistake you for a 9-year-old with fingerpaints. We know its annoying, but please try to ignore this. Dear Annie : I read the letter from Dreading Christmas, whose husbands two siblings take turns hosting Christmas Eve dinners in their homes, but they wont let her reciprocate because she doesnt want to have it in her house. I have two sisters who love hosting Thanksgiving dinner and alternate each year. They have lovely china and beautiful homes. I have always lived in a small house, but we have a beautiful yard and garden. We reciprocate by hosting a barbecue on Labor Day weekend. Maybe Dreading Christmas could do something like this.

Celebrate Reading is a session consisting of two programs geared toward helping preschool and elementary school-age children develop literacy skills, improve their reading and gain a love of books. The first program, PAWS to Read, gives children the opportunity to build confidence in their reading ability by reading aloud to a certified therapist. The second program, Reading Pals, pairs teens and younger children together. Teens read storybooks aloud to one or two younger children at a time. Children may wish to draw or write about a story they like. Listening to stories, talking about stories and reading aloud are great ways to improve literacy skills while having a good time. For information, call the youth librarian at 352-628-5626. Citrus County Parks & Recreation is offering baton classes at the Citrus Springs Community Center. Classes are open to all girls and boys ages 4 to college age. No experience is necessary. For information, call Diane Sorvillo at 352-5276540. All classes are taught by Sorvillo, a former Majorette Queen of America and twotime national champion. Classes and times are: 4:45 to 5:30 p.m. New Beginners (ages 4 to 7). 5:30 to 6:15 Competitive team class. 6:15 to 7 p.m. Solo competitive class. 7 to 7:45 p.m. New Beginners (ages 8 and older). Class fees are $32 per month, or two different classes for $45. Free tutoring is available from state-approved providers to students who scored a Level 1 or Level 2 on the Reading or Math FCAT last spring at all Citrus County Elementary Schools and the Renaissance Center (Title I schools). Enrollment forms will be mailed to all qualifying families. Tutoring is available after school, at day care sites or community centers, in home or online. Spaces are limited, so if requests for free tutoring exceed the amount of funding available, the school district will prioritize services. Neither the Florida Department of Education nor the school district promotes or endorses any particular Supplemental Educational Services provider. For information, call Maribeth Smith at 352-7261931, ext. 2321. Miscellaneous The Citrus County YMCA is currently seeking to connect community volunteers through their Y Community Champions program. The Y Community Champions program embraces volunteers to help in a variety of areas with the YMCA organization. The benefits of volunteering include personal development, health and wellness, building relationships and having a community connection. Volunteers are currently needed in the areas of coaching, program assistants, special events and office administration. All volunteers must undergo a background screening. To volunteer at the YMCA, call 352-637-0132, or stop by the office at 3909 N. Lecanto Highway in Beverly Hills. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County are now registering children for the beforeand afterschool programs at each club. Clubs open as early as 6 a.m. for before-school programming, with children remaining until the school bus transports them to their respective schools. Buses also transport children in the afternoon when school is out to the clubs for the afterschool program, with parents picking up children by 6 p.m. To register a child or to learn more about the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County programs, call the Central Ridge Boys & Girls Club at 352-270-8841, the Robert Halleen Boys & Girls Club at 352-795-8624, or the Evelyn Waters Boys & Girls Clubs at 352-341-2507, or the administrative office at 352-621-9225. Hernando Elementary School is looking for donations of working Kindles Nooks, iPod Touches, iPads, Internet tablets, digital cameras and digital recording devices to be used by students in the classroom. If you have any used but working electronic devices from the list above or would like to donate a new electronic device, contact Heather Bone or Laura Manos at 352-726-1833 Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. To contact someone outside of these hours, call Heather Bone at 352-4624768. Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County Central Ridge and Robert Halleen clubs seek mentors to work with their members. The two clubs have received federal grants through Boys & Girls Clubs of America, allowing mentors to come into the clubs to serve as tutors and special friends of members. All mentors will undergo complete background security checks with fingerprinting. Cost of background checks will be covered in most cases through grant funding by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County. Mentors may be assigned more than one child. A training session will be done prior to mentoring. All mentoring will take place at the club sites. Those who are interested, may call Amy Stonestreet at 352-270-8841 or Lane Vick at 352-621-9225. Take Stock in Children is a mentoring program that offers a college scholarship and the promise of hope to deserving youths in Citrus County. Take Stock scholars join the program in the sixth, seventh or eighth grades and are assigned a mentor who meets with their student once a week, during regular school hours, and helps the student achieve their goal of a graduating from high school and going to college. The mentor commitment involves working with scholars each week during regular school hours, believing in the student, and helping the student believe in themselves. The program is actively seeking male and female role models to help support active student scholars, as well as new students who will soon be entering the program. Call Pat Lancaster, program coordinator, at 352-4222348 or 352-344-0855 for information and to sign up for the next mentor training.

Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion on demand.Tuesdays event, sponsored by Citrus County Right to Life, was both a time for participants to mourn the more than 55 million abortions performed since 1973 and a time to uphold their view on the sanctity of life.Every prayer, song and speech proclaimed the message that life is precious and abortion is tragic. We come today with hope and with broken hearts, prayed the Rev. Kevin Brian in his invocation. We have hope that hearts will be changed, that laws will be changed and the lives of the unborn will be protected. Cindy Devine, director of the Pregnancy & Family Life Center in Inverness, said her ministry has been quietly supporting families in Citrus County for 30 years, encouraging people to choose life, giving them resources and life skills training as they raise children even great-grandparents who are raising their greatgrandchildren. I bring a message of hope and encouragement, she said, citing a Jan. 14 Time magazine cover story that announced, years ago abortion rights activists won an epic battle with Roe vs. Wade and theyve been losing ever since. To the applause of those in attendance, Pro-lifers mark anniversary Roe v. Wade decision turns 40 MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCookie Plaisted holds her 7-month-old grandson, Nathaniel Gibson of Homosassa, Tuesday afternoon as the Roe v. Wade memorial ob servance starts on Courthouse Square in Inverness. Citrus County Right to Life held the memorial that marks the Supreme Courts decision 40 years ago to legalize abortion. Mrs. Plaisted said it was important for her to bring her grandchild to the memorial, because she and her husband, Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted, adopted the babys mother many years ago. She could have been aborted, she said of her daughter. But she was put up for adoption and now we have our daughter and a beautiful grandson. See LIFE/ Page A2 A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerVideo of a 2009 traffic stop involving a purported concealed weapon permit holder and a sheriffs deputy is creating quite a buzz online and has the deputy facing an agency inquiry. In the 6-minute 41-second video on YouTube, veteran Citrus County Sheriffs Deputy Andy Cox is seen stopping a motorist for an expired tag. When the driver who had stepped out of his van and accessed his wallet was asked for his registration and proof of insurance, he turned and reached back into the vehicle. Thats when Cox noticed a holstered handgun sticking out from around the mans waist. Cox, in a quickly changed tone, ordered the man to put his hands on the van, then reasserted: Put your hands right there or Ill shoot you in the (expletive) back. Cox then promptly ordered the man to the ground with profanity-laced commands. The man also could be heard telling the deputy he had a concealed/carry permit. Coxs answer was he didnt care. In audio, Cox later could be heard telling the man he would be charged with brandishing a firearm, and said the man never told him he had a permit for the pistol. While both the man and a female companion advised he had a permit, the comments came after the man had exited the van and his firearm was seen by Cox. Cox and the man disagreed on the deputys assertion he brandished a firearm, which showed under his shirttail when he reached into the van. According to CCSO spokeswoman Heather Yates, Cox has been placed on administrative duty and an internal affairs Traffic stop video triggers inquiry Deputy investigated in concealed weapons incident See INQUIRY/ Page A4 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Citrus County officials are not happy with Progress Energy Floridas latest salvo on property taxes, but at least they know where the company stands. That was the sentiment expressed Tuesday when county commission Chairman Joe Meek noted last weeks letter from Progress Florida President Alex Glenn said the company would pay no more than $19 million and potentially much less in property taxes next year regardless of the property appraisers assessments. Glenn sent the letter to Meek, Superintendent of Schools Sandra Himmel, Property Appraiser Geoff Greene and Sheriff Jeff Dawsy. All four are preparing a joint response; Meek said early Tuesday evening he expects the response to be sent today to Glenn. Progress and its parent company, Duke Energy, are embroiled in a dispute over 2012 property taxes. Progress paid $19 million about 60 percent of what the county said it owes. The company filed suit against Greene over his assessment of pollution-control equipment installed in 2009 at the companys coal-burning plants north of Crystal River. The difference in taxable value between County: At least we know Progress tax plans Company plans to pay only $19M or less next year Joe Meek See TAX / Page A4 CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCitrus Countys spending record looks good in comparison to other counties, according to data prepared by Leon County, commissioners heard Tuesday. At the second session to analyze the county budget,County Administrator Brad Thorpe was scheduled to present the forecast regarding human services, economic environment and culture and recreation.But first, he dealt with an issue raised at the previous meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) by Commissioner Scott Adams. The subject was general fund spending per capita. As part of our rule, when a commissioner brought up a question, we would try to answer that question at the next board meeting, Thorpe began. Cathy Taylor, director of the Management and Budget Department, said the county participates in an annual survey with other Florida counties and can show how it compares to other counties. We participate in an annual survey and Leon County is the leading agency in that, Taylor said. Leon Countys survey shows the net budget per capita and the staff per thousand for each of Floridas 67 counties. With $870 allocated for spending on each resident and 7.62 county employees per 1,000 residents, Citrus County ranked the 17th lowest-spending county in the state. They use a net budget, Taylor explained about how Leon County calculated its data. Thats all the personnel costs, plus all the operating costs in the county. They subtract out the capital and the reserves. Taylor said Leon County Commissioners debate spending per resident Adams takes issue with calculation method Scott Adams See DEBATE/ Page A2 NATIONAL NEWS:ShootingsA 15-year-old charged with shooting his family planned to do more, but did not./Page A12 LOCAL NEWS:CourtroomsCanines calm kids in stressful settings such as court./ Page A3

was looking at day-to-day operating as a cost to run. Adams questioned why the figure for Citrus County was not higher as the current total county budget is $231,773,880, which comes out to be $1,655 per person. Thats sheriffs department, clerk of court, BOCC. Its not just ad valorem taxes, Taylor said. Our total budget includes all the enterprise funds, the reserves, bond proceeds. What were spending to operate each day this gives us that picture. Adams came back to the expenditure-per-resident question again, saying it appeared to him that the county had higher expenses than shown in the study. Let me take a stab at it, said Commission Chairman Joe Meek. What we are doing there is we are looking at the per capita for general fund. The $1,600 figure that you are referencing is taking the total budget that includes enterprise funds and everything and dividing it by the number of people in the county to give you a per capita cost. The problem with that and why I believe that is not correct is what we are doing now is we are mixing apples and oranges. For example, when the county purchased a utility system in 2008, Meek said, for about $50 million, it was a revenue generator that not everyone in the county pays for, only residents who are county water and sewer customers. But it was lumped into the total budget cost. When you add that in and divide it by the number of people, that gives you a false per capita cost of local government, Meek said. That utility is a revenue generator and an enterprise fund. The cost isnt borne by every one of the taxpayers; it is borne by the users of that system. Meek said a better way to determine the cost per capita figure would be to take the general ad valorem property tax portion of the budget and divide that by the number of people in the county. The cost of the utility could be divided by the number of its users for cost per capita determination. If we combine all of the costs together and simply divide it by the number of people in the county, thats giving us a false reading on the per capita cost of local government, Meek said. Adams disagreed. You can say that, but its sitting on the books, Adams said. Its either a liability or an asset. If we want to pull it out and put it by itself, thats fine. But at the way it is calculated in the budget, it has to be figured that way. Meek replied that he disagreed with Adams. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said that although the Leon County survey was considered a standard, counties could not always be compared to other counties because they operate differently. Commissioner Dennis Damato said many of the counties that ranked lower than Citrus are considered financially disadvantaged by the state and receive additional funding from the state for support of general services. That puts Citrus County very, very well positioned in net budget per capita, staff per thousand, Damato said. Based on the four counties that surround us, it costs more to live there and I think we have way more to offer.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer @chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2916. Special to the ChronicleCRYSTAL RIVER Rakes are ready for One Rake at a Time lyngbya cleanup from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at Hunter Springs Park in Crystal River. This will be the One Rake at a Time projects first big public lyngbya cleanup for 2013. Sponsored by the Kings Bay Rotary, local volunteers will be joined by 41 college students and staff from Darton State College in Albany, Ga. The students will be here for the weekend, learning about manatees. Everyone is invited to join in the effort to rake lyngbya algae from Kings Bay. High school students can earn community hours. People are needed on both the land and in the water as tons of noxious lyngbya algae are removed. Lyngbya robs oxygen from the water and, in turn, destroys fish, manatee and human habitat as it smothers spring vents and beneficial plants that provide food for the fish and manatees, according to Art Jones, project leader. Lyngbya likes dirty water, and it hordes nutrients, according to Jones. It can be prevented in the future as people learn to use less fertilizer, or not fertilize at all, and as they move to non-spray irrigation so water is not lost to evaporation. Dilution is a solution to pollution, Jones said. A healthy, full aquifer is the best line of defense against salt water incursion and pollution. People can also help by having septic tanks inspected every five years and by hooking up to municipal sewer systems where available, according to Jones. Landscaping should use native or drought-tolerant trees, shrubs and ground cover and drip irrigation methods. Golf courses and farmers should use best practices, he added. Participants should bring water shoes or old sneakers that can get wet, sit-on-top kayaks, and pitchforks or spring-steel leaf rakes.

Project targets invasive algae Devine went on to say that in 1992 the Supreme Courts ruling in Planned Parenthood vs. Casey gave states the right to regulate restrictions on abortions. Since then, even though Planned Parenthood is the single largest abortion provider in the U.S., most abortions are performed in independent clinics. As a result of the ruling, states continue to pass legislation making it increasingly burdensome for these clinics to operate, forcing many to close, she said. Between 1982 and 2008 there was a 39 percent decrease in abortion providers, Devine said. From 1982 to 2008, there was a 33 percent decrease in the abortion rate. Also, from 1982 to 2008 there was a decrease in doctors willing to perform abortions. According to information from The Associated Press, since 2010, GOPdominated state legislatures have passed more than 130 bills intended to reduce access to abortion, including mandatory counseling and ultrasound for women seeking abortions, bans on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, curbs on how insurers cover abortions and regulations for abortion clinics. For 40 years since Roe v. Wade weve been making a difference, she said. The news Tuesday was not all positive, however. Keynote speaker Donna Davis, a member of Citrus County Right to Life, said the cumulative effect of 55 million abortions has been devastating to the entire nation. Fifty-five million are dead, but hundreds of millions are wounded, she said. Its the profound violation of women, body and soul; the grief of grandparents and family members who will never know the joy these babies would have brought. Add to that the absence of prayer in the public forum, she said. Im convinced that this monumental removal of joy, infusion of sorrow and restriction of prayer as an antidote has resulted in the severe imbalance in the mental health of America We are witnessing a time in America when our collective pain is so great and theres an ever-escalating eruption of violence throughout society. Davis said the battle is far from over, and the greatest weapon in the fight is personal and corporate prayer and being prepared to answer the pro-choice arguments with knowledge and a soft reply. No one was ever won over to the pro-life movement by a shouting match, she said. Peter Reguin, grand knight from the Knights of Columbus Council 6391, said the Knights of Columbus organization is committed to raising money to buy ultrasound machines for pregnancy centers. When they see its a baby, they change their minds, he said. So, when you see the Knights of Columbus out raising money, thats what its for.

Campbell is represented by public defenders Michael Lamberti and Devon Sharkey. The trial is set to begin at 8:30 a.m. Campbell is facing additional charges in Hernando County for allegedly crashing his vehicle into a Citrus County sheriffs deputys vehicle during a high-speed chase near the Hernando-Citrus line. The deputy was not in the squad car at the time and suffered minor injuries, but Campbell is said to have intentionally crashed his vehicle into the parked car. Officials believe between Aug. 5 and 11, Campbell committed several crimes before it all ended in the high-speed chase Aug. 11 on U.S. 19, in which he was hurt and transported to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment. Campbells fathers body was discovered Aug. 10 in a doublewide home they reportedly shared at 3707 E. Nugget Lane in Inverness. Authorities suspect Campbell was involved in an attempted robbery at the Lowes store near Inverness, also on Aug. 10. Campbell is believed to have robbed the Walgreens on State Road 44 on Aug. 5 and a Family Dollar store on U.S. 41 on Aug. 7, both in Inverness. According to investigators, Campbells fathers death was caused by a sharp, hatchet-like instrument they found in the home. The medical examiners report said the elder Campbell died from multiple chop and blunt-force head injuries. In September 2010, a grand jury indicted Campbell of first-degree murder in his fathers death. In November 2010, Magrino told the court he was seeking to terminate Campbells life by asking for a death penalty prosecution.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925.

Group uses dogs in courtroom to calm stressed kidsERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerAfter children endure traumatic events, testifying in court to the circumstances can be terrifying. They endure strangers in suits and ties inquiring about experiences that range from unpleasant to horrific. To counteract stress for the children, there is Courtroom Dogs for Kids Inc., a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that provides registered and trained therapy dogs that serve as calming companions to youths who have been traumatized and have been ordered to testify in court. The Guardian ad Litems really like the effect the dogs have on the kids, said Joanne Peters, CEO and founder of Courtroom Dogs for Kids. The kids are more relaxed and it helps bring their stress level down. When you ask them a question they are more relaxed and are able to more clearly disclose what they need to disclose. Once the children testify in court, they are escorted out and given the opportunity to bond with a dog. A lot of times the children do not need to hear whats going on, Peters said. They do not need to know what their parent or caregiver has done. So we will take the children out into the hallway and let the children spend time with the dogs. That way the adults can get their adult business taken care of and the kids can be with the dog. Established in November 2010, Courtroom Dogs for Kids has been working with children advocacy centers, such as Jessies Place, and the Guardian ad Litem program in addition to the Citrus County Courthouse. When the children are brought to the advocacy center, they are traumatized already, said Lorraine Clark, vice president of Courtroom Dogs for Kids Inc. Then they have to go through the examinations, forensics and questioning. Both therapists have said What a difference the dogs make, Peters added. The kids dont come in all crazy. By the time they get into the therapy, they have had time to walk the dogs, patted the dogs, read to them. Currently, Courtroom Dogs for Kids has 14 diverse teams handler and dog(s) that assist daily at the courthouse or advocacy centers. Dogs and handlers are required to have an extensive criminal background check, FBI fingerprint test and rigorous training for the dogs. Peters said not every dog is a therapy dog and not every therapy dog is a courtroom dog. We are always observing the dogs to make sure that they are comfortable with kids pulling on them, Clark said. The handlers are also trained that they are an advocate for their dog. You need to watch your dog. If your dog looks uncomfortable or is having a bad day, then they need to be taken away. You dont want your dog to be stressed or uncomfortable. A negative experience in a childs life can become positive. When we feel comfortable with the children with the dogs, we might hand them the leash to walk the dogs in the building, Peters said. It is such an unusual thing for them for someone to be positive. Volunteers and donations are needed.

Greenes assessment and the companys view of the equipments value is about $1 billion. Progress is the countys largest taxpayer, accounting for about 26 percent of the tax base. Glenn said he wanted to put county officials on notice that the company would pay no more than $19 million for its 2013 property taxes, and up to $9 million less than that if Progress decides this summer to permanently retire its nuclear plant at the power complex. Meek said he disagreed with Glenns position to state the companys property tax payment long before Greene completes an assessment of the energy complex. It shows a disregard for a tax system and a tax structure, Meek said. That is disturbing and unusual. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said the silver lining in Glenns letter is the county commission and citizens know what to expect as they prepare the 2013-14 budget. The days of relying on Progress Energy to pay 26 percent of the taxes are over, he said. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said the Progress issue gives county officials fuel to find revenue sources other than traditional property taxes. We dont have a spending problem, she said. We have a revenue problem.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com.

The Citrus County Sheriffs Office is aware of the video involving Deputy Andy Cox making a traffic stop and subsequent arrest, according to a statement from the agency. We have opened an internal affairs investigation and Deputy Cox has been placed in an administrative position while the investigation is conducted. According to CCSO, the internal affairs investigation was opened on Jan. 15, 2013. Cox was hired as a CCSO deputy in October 2006. The video, which had generated 24,157 hits by Tuesday afternoon, was uploaded Jan. 9. Comments on YouTube about the video have kindled passions about everything from issues regarding the Second Amendment to overexuberance by law enforcement personnel. Meanwhile, some faulted the man for not telling Cox from the outset that he had a gun on him. At this time, since the investigation is ongoing, we cant go into specifics, CCSO officials said. Officials say investigations typically take about 45 days to complete. While arrests are public record, the agency would only acknowledge that the man was arrested and refused to provide the arrest report, claiming it is an open and active Internal Affairs investigation.Chronicle reporter A.B.

on its power and was in the process of charging when the fire ignited, a source familiar with the investigation of the 787 fire in Boston told The Associated Press. The plane had landed a short time earlier and was empty of passengers, although a cleaning crew was working in the plane. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasnt authorized to speak publicly. The Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order Wednesday temporarily grounding the six 787s belonging to United Airlines, the lone U.S. carrier operating Boeings newest and most technologically advanced airliner. The Japanese carriers already had grounded their 787s, and airlines and civil aviation authorities in other countries followed suit, shutting down all 50 Dreamliners that Boeing has delivered so far. Boeing said Friday it will stop delivering new 787s to customers until the electrical system is fixed. However, production is not stopping. The plane is assembled in Everett, Wash., and North Charleston, S.C. The aircraft maker has booked orders for more than 800 of the planes from airlines around the world attracted by its increased fuel efficiency. Associated PressWASHINGTON Its likely that burning lithium ion batteries on two Boeing 787 Dreamliners were caused by overcharging, aviation safety and battery experts said Friday, pointing to developments in the investigation of the Boeing incidents as well as a battery fire in a business jet more than a year ago. An investigator in Japan, where a 787 made an emergency landing earlier this week, said the charred insides of the planes lithium ion battery show the battery received voltage in excess of its design limits. The similarity of the burned battery from the All Nippon Airways flight to the burned battery in a Japan Airlines 787 that caught fire Jan. 7 while the jet was parked at Bostons Logan International Airport suggests a common cause, Japan transport ministry investigator Hideyo Kosugi said. If we compare data from the latest case here and that in the U.S., we can pretty much figure out what happened, Kosugi said. In the case of the 787 in Boston, the battery in the planes auxiliary power unit had recently received a large demand John Fredlund, 60BEVERLY HILLSMr. John Erik Fredlund, age 60 of Beverly Hills, Florida, died Sunday, January 20, 2013 at Seven Rivers Medical Center in Crystal River, FL.

Overcharging batteries eyed in 787 mishaps Associated PressWASHINGTON As 21st century technology strains to become ever faster, cleaner and cheaper, an invention from more than 200 years ago keeps holding it back. Its why electric cars arent clogging the roads and why Boeings new ultra-efficient 787 Dreamliners arent flying high. And chances are you have this little invention next to you right now and probably have cursed it recently: the infernal battery. Boeing is the first company to make extensive use in an airliner of technologys most advanced battery lithium ion. But a Jan. 7 battery fire aboard a Dreamliner in Boston, followed by a similar meltdown in Japan, led authorities around the world to ground the fleet this month, highlighting a longstanding safety problem engineers have struggled with. In 2006 and 2007, more than 46 million cellphone batteries and 10 million laptop batteries all lithium ion were recalled because of the risk of overheating, short-circuiting and exploding. Additional safety features have been installed since then on lithium ion batteries used in consumer electronics. As for the electric car industry, lithium ion batteries have proved to have two major drawbacks: They are costly, and they do not allow automobiles to go far enough between charges. Lithium ion batteries, which store more energy at a higher voltage and a lighter weight than earlier types, represent the most recent big jump in battery technology. And that took place nearly a quarter of a century ago. We need to leapfrog the engineering of making of batteries, said Lawrence Berkeley National Lab battery scientist Vince Battaglia. Weve got to find the next big thing. One reason the battery is the slowpoke of the high-tech highway is its conflicting functions. Its primary job is to store energy. But its also supposed to discharge power, lots of it, quickly. Those two jobs are at odds with each other. If you want high storage, you cant get high power, said M. Stanley Whittingham, director of the Northeast Center for Chemical Energy Storage. People are expecting more than whats possible. On the commercial market, lithium ion batteries are generally ones small enough to fit into cellphones. But to power bigger items from a Prius to a 787 they get grouped together, increasing the juice they store and provide. That also increases the safety risk, experts say. The lithium ion battery that caught fire in a Boeing 787 weighed 63 pounds and was 19 inches long. You cant get around the fundamental thing is that lithium ion batteries are stuffed full of flammable liquid, Whitacre said. Even one-in-a-million problems with lithium ion batteries can result in many fires because there are billions of them in use now. Lithium ion batteries are more dangerous because their electrolyte, the liquid that allows ions to move between electrodes in the battery, is more flammable than the substance in older type batteries. Those older types include the lead-acid batteries in most cars and the nickel cadmium batteries often in video equipment and power tools. What holds back energy tech? The infernal battery

Associated PressDAVOS, Switzerland As high-powered CEOs flock to the snowy Swiss resort of Davos, they are loaded down with baggage not just skis and iPads but concerns about the global economy, public mistrust, disappearing jobs and a heap of other challenges. New survey results Tuesday showed a steady drop in the number of CEOs worldwide who are very confident that their companies will grow this year. The number fell from 48 percent in 2011 to 36 percent this year. Amid this pessimism, most of them are carefully sticking to a few investments in tried-and-true markets, according to the survey by accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Most are saying that the global economy will stay about the same for the next 12 months. So, not encouraging, maybe not discouraging, but clearly thats affecting their outlook for their own companies growth prospects, PwC chairman Dennis Nally told The Associated Press in an interview. The degree of confidence across the board is really down, regardless of whether youre in a developing market or a developed market, he said. It is down even in highflying economies like China and Brazil. The most upbeat country was Russia, where 66 percent of CEOs are very confident of revenue growth in 2013, Nally said. He called the survey results a strong message to governments that they must fix economic problems, including disputed regulations, government deficits and tax issues. All of those are impacting CEOs levels of confidence to really deal with their businesses on a goforward basis, he said in the PwC Lounge, an ultrachic Davos party room with white sofas and chairs and orange and red flowers. Uncertainty about tax and spending policies is at the root of the gloom, said John Veihmeyer, CEO of accounting firm KPMGs U.S. operations. I think we have an opportunity for the U.S. to lead the world onto a path of stronger economic footing and very robust economic recovery over the next five years, Veihmeyer told AP Its not going to be easy. Theres going to be pain and sacrifice. Nearly a quarter of the CEOs surveyed plan further job cuts yet more than half of them say they have trouble finding people with the right job skills. Neely worries about a lost generation of job seekers and encourages young people to focus on gaining skills that are in demand. Heading Tuesday into the glitzy World Economic Forum, where over 2,500 members of the political and corporate elite will debate the worlds top economic issues this week, many participants said their top worries are prospects for social unrest, a U.S. recession, cyberattacks, natural disasters and a breakup of the 17-nation eurozone. Business leaders also recognize that public trust in corporations including CEOs is waning. The survey questioned 1,330 corporate leaders in 68 nations between September and December, and more than half said they plan to do more to build an ethical culture at their firms this year. Weve got to start to rebuild that trust, Nally said. I think it starts with your own organization, quite frankly, and I think it starts with the CEO, the tone at the top. What does an organization stand for? What is its purpose? he said. Is it just to deliver short-term profitable results to the shareholder group? he asked. Or is there a greater purpose in terms of the role of business in society today? Associated PressNEWARK, N.J. The U.S. Department of Justice filed notice Tuesday that it is joining a lawsuit by sports leagues and the NCAA to stop the state from allowing sports gambling, setting the stage for a fight next month over the constitutionality of a 21year-old federal statute. Tuesdays filing was expected after a federal judge last month declined New Jerseys motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the NFL, the NHL, the NBA, Major League Baseball and the NCAA. The state had argued the leagues and the NCAA, college sports governing body, couldnt prove they would be harmed if it allowed sports gambling since all enjoy unprecedented success despite the existence of legal wagering in Nevada and more widespread illegal sports gambling. Now, the focus will turn to the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, a 1992 statute that prohibited sports gambling in all but four states: Nevada, where bettors can gamble on games individually; and Oregon, Montana and Delaware, which were allowed to offer multi-game parlay betting. Attorneys for New Jersey claim the law usurps the authority of state legislatures and treats the states unequally by grandfathering in some states where sports betting already was allowed. The leagues attorneys have termed the constitutional challenge specious and have argued that the Constitutions commerce clause doesnt require uniformity in its application to different states. They referred in one court filing to Republican Gov. Chris Christies signing of a sports betting bill last year as a blatant violation of federal law. In Tuesdays filing, lawyers for the Department of Justice asked U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp to give them until the end of next week to file responses to the states constitutional challenges. Oral arguments in the case are scheduled for Feb. 14 in Trenton. The leagues and the NCAA sued last summer after Christie signed a law that would allow sports wagering at Atlantic City casinos and the states horse racing tracks. Games involving New Jersey colleges or college games played in New Jersey would be exempted.A8WEDNESDAY, JANUARY23, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Eighth Annual Purple Heart Ceremony Florida National Guard Armory, Crystal River Saturday, February 9, 2013, 11:00 a.m. Commemorating the proud legacy of the Purple Heart & Honoring Floridas fallen heroes of the Global War on Terror and Americas wounded warriors All Gave Some, Some Gave All Hosted by The combat wounded Patriots of Aaron A.

All my love, Barbara Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio The lawyer for one of two high school football players charged with raping a 16-year-old girl wants to delay the trial and also have it moved out of an eastern Ohio city that has received international attention. Attorney Brian Duncan filed the motion Friday on behalf of Trent Mays, who is scheduled for trial next month in juvenile court in Steubenville. Duncan expects to file another motion this week to move the trial. An attorney for the other defendant, MaLik Richmond, filed similar motions earlier this month, as well as a request to close the trial to the public. The case has gained global attention through the work of bloggers and hacker-activists who allege other football players should be charged but are being protected by a cover-up. A video and photo posted online also have drawn attention to the case. In a statement earlier this month, Duncan acknowledged the role of social media in in the case but again urged people not to draw conclusions. We certainly recognize that the video, photograph, alleged facts, and surrounding circumstances set forth on the Internet and portrayed in the media would cause even the most optimistic of man to call into question the defendants presumption of innocence, Duncan said in the Jan. 9 statement. We must be careful in this age of social media to ensure that the words set forth do in fact portray the actual story, he said. The 12-minute video shows a student who was not involved in the attack but apparently aware of it joking about it while others in the background chime in. In a photograph, the two defendants are apparently seen carrying the girl by her arms and legs, according to the transcript of an October hearing where a judge heard testimony before deciding whether the teens should be charged. At that hearing, three other high school students testified to seeing the attack on the girl from nearby Weirton, W.Va. Two of those students also recorded a video and photograph of the attacks on their phones, but deleted the images shortly afterward. Those students were told at the hearing that they would have been charged had investigators found the images. In letters to attorneys for each of the three students last fall, prosecutors said while each student may not have conducted himself in a responsible or appropriate manner, his behavior did not rise to the level of criminal conduct, according to copies of the letters obtained by The Associated Press through a records request. Prosecutors added in each case that, we will not prosecute your client for his actions on the weekend of the alleged attack in August, the letters said. Lawyer: Delay, move Steubenville rape trial DOJ to join suit over N.J. sports betting law Associated PressDennis Nally, chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers, arrives Tuesday for an interview with the Associated Press on the eve of the opening of the 43rd annual meeting of the World Economic Forum, in Davos, Switzerland.

Interestrates Associated PressStrong earnings reports from big U.S. companies helped push the Dow Jones industrial average to its eighth gain in nine sessions Tuesday. DuPont, Verizon and Travelers Cos., three of the 30 stocks that make up the Dow, closed higher after reporting their financial results for the final quarter of 2012. The Dow closed up 62.51 points, or 0.5 percent, at 13,712.21. The Standard & Poors 500 index gained 6.53, or 0.4 percent, to 1,492.51. The Nasdaq composite average rose 8.47, or 0.3 percent, to 3,143.18. The indexes spent the morning edging between small gains and losses. Around noon, the Dow rose decisively and stayed higher for the rest of the day. Earnings have been strong enough this season to drive a five-day winning streak for the S&P 500 and put the Dow on track for its biggest monthly percentage gain since October 2011. Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago, said traders have been encouraged by the number of companies beating analysts profit expectations. Granted, we have diminished expectations, but companies are doing a decent job beating on the profit side, he said. The revenue side of the equation has been weaker, Ablin said, preventing a stronger updraft for stocks. Traders might gain more confidence if companies reported stronger demand from emerging markets and Europe, he said. The U.S. has been pulling this wagon by itself for the last couple years, and now were facing some austerity measures. We could certainly use a hand, he said. Among the Dow components that reported early Tuesday, chemical and bioscience company DuPont reported a sharp drop in net income, but the results still beatanalysts forecasts. DuPonts stock closed up 83 cents, or 1.8 percent, at $47.82. Johnson & Johnson said higher sales helped boost its profit from a year ago, when results were weighed down by a slew of one-time charges. However, the companys 2013 profit forecast fell short of analysts estimates. J&J dropped 54 cents, or 0.7 percent, to $72.69. Verizon Communications Inc. rose after the countrys biggest wireless carrier said it activated a record number of new devices on contract-based plans in the fourth quarter. Verizons net loss widened on restructuring and pension costs and expenses related to the cleanup from superstorm Sandy. Its stock rose 40 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $42.94. A fourth member of the Dow 30, property and casualty insurer Travelers Cos., rose strongly after it said core income categories like investments and premiums written rose. Net income fell because of claims filed in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. The stock shot up $1.64, or 2.2 percent, to $77.95, an alltime closing high. Travelers has risen nearly 27 percent over the past 12 months. Tech behemoths Google and IBM reported solid earnings gains after the marketclosed. Tech companies results are being watched closely because many of them have warned about a weak fourth quarter. Google soared after saying its fourthquarter earnings rose 7 percent as online advertisers spent more money in pursuit of holiday shoppers. The stock gained $29.13, or 4.1 percent, to $732 in after-hours trading. IBM said its net income rose 6 percent. The stock rose $6.82, or 3.5 percent, to $202.90 in late trading. Freight rail companies are another key category at this stage in the economic recovery. Two big railroads reported after the closing bell. CSX gained 74 cents, or 3.6 percent, to $21.55 in afterhours trading. Norfolk Southern rose $1.05, or 1.6 percent, to $67.99. Stocks rise as tech, industrial earnings roll in Google soared after saying its fourth-quarter earnings rose 7 percent as online advertisers spent more money in pursuit of holiday shoppers. The stock gained $29.13. BusinessHIGHLIGHTS Apple to announce Q4 earnings todayNEW YORK For many investors, Apples best days are behind it. Competitors are catching up, they believe. The companys doubters have backed their conviction with billions of dollars. Last week, the stock fell below $500 for the first time in 11 months. Since Apples stock peaked at $705.07 on Sept. 21 the day of the iPhone 5s release it has fallen nearly 30 percent, cutting Apples market capitalization by nearly $200 billion. On Wednesday, Apple still the worlds most valuable public company gets a chance to rebut the skeptics as it reports financial results for the holiday quarter. But the report could also end up confirming beliefs that the company is losing its edge as an arbiter of innovation and a pacesetter in sales growth.Walmart warns suppliers of stricter measuresBENTONVILLE, Ark. Walmart Stores Inc. has alerted its global suppliers that it will immediately drop them if they subcontract their work to factories that havent been authorized by the discounter. Walmarts stricter contracting rule, along with other changes to its policy, comes amid increasing calls for better safety oversight after a deadly fire at a Bangladesh factory that supplied clothing to Walmart and other retailers. The fire in late November killed 112 workers at a factory owned by Tazreen Fashions Ltd. Walmart has said the factory wasnt authorized to make its clothes. In a letter sent Tuesday to suppliers of its Walmart stores as well as Sams Clubs in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom, the company says it will adopt a zero tolerance policy on subcontracting without the companys knowledge, effective March. 1. Previously, suppliers had three chances to rectify mistakes.Home sales dip in December, but 2012 best in five yearsWASHINGTON U.S. sales of previously occupied homes dipped in December from November, in part because of a limited supply of available homes. But for all of 2012, sales rose to their highest level in five years. The National Association of Realtors said Tuesday that sales declined in December to an annual rate of 4.94 million. Thats down from a rate of 4.99 million in November, which was revised lower but was still the highest in three years. Total sales last year increased to 4.65 million. Thats 9.2 percent higher than 2011 and the most since 2007. Sales finished below the roughly 5.5 million that are consistent with a healthy market. Still, most economists say home sales are improving steadily.Delta Air Lines clings to $7 million profit in Q4MINNEAPOLIS Delta Air Lines Inc. said Tuesday that its fourth-quarter profit was nearly wiped out by superstorm Sandy and special charges. The storm forced airlines to cancel more than 20,000 flights. The impact was bigger at Delta because Sandy also slowed down operations at its new oil refinery near Philadelphia. Deltas goal in restarting the refinery was to maximize jet fuel production and reduce its fuel bill. But Sandy slowed the refinerys restart. The refinery lost $63 million for the quarter and added 7 cents per gallon to the price of Deltas jet fuel. Delta said it expects the refinery to be profitable in the current quarter.Its cowboys v. showgirls in Cokes Super Bowl adNEW YORK Most people will be cheering for the San Francisco 49ers or Baltimore Ravens during Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3. But Coca-Cola is asking viewers to cheer for three very different groups in an interactive marketing blitz during the big game: a troupe of showgirls, a band of cowboys and a biker-style gang of badlanders all on a quest for a thirst-quenching Coke in a desert. The campaign is the worlds largest beverage makers latest attempt to capture interest of people who watch the Big Game with a tablet or smartphone nearby. Time Warner Cable wins Dodgers TV dealLOS ANGELES Time Warner Cable Inc. has won a contract to carry Los Angeles Dodgers games for at least the next two decades starting in 2014, snatching the games away from Fox Sports after this years baseball season ends, according to a person familiar with the matter. The deal has not yet been finalized, although it is to be announced within days, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity. The Los Angeles Times earlier reported the nations second-largest cable operator will pay around $7 billion to carry the games.From wire reports Associated PressMOORESVILLE, N.C. Home-improvement retailer Lowes Cos. said Tuesday that it plans to hire 45,000 seasonal workers ahead of its busy spring season, a sign that the nascent housing recovery is creating jobs. Lowes, based in Mooresville, N.C., also plans to add 9,000 parttime employees on a permanent basis. On average, seasonal employees will work 20 to 25 hours per week and the length of seasonal employment will vary. Most jobs will start in February. Some could last until September. The prolonged housing slump hurt homeimprovement stores. But now, most economists say, the housing market is recovering and the gains should continue this year. Home prices rose 7.4 percent annually in November, real estate data provider CoreLogic said last week. Thats the biggest annual increase since 2006. On Tuesday, The National Association of Realtors reported U.S. sales of previously occupied homes dipped in December from November. Lowes shares rose 45 cents on Tuesday to close at $37.44.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 Port remains a loserIn response to the papers editorial of Jan. 14, I would like to make some interjections to what was stated. The paper addresses what could be logical reasons to continue with the port feasibility study. But in rebuttal I would like to make some statements. That being, perhaps Mr. Thorpe may well be trying to build his rsum for future employment at the taxpayers expense. Therefore if the study shows the viability of a port, then Mr. Thorpes cost should be reimbursed. But I also like to challenge the statement of an assured viability of any paid evaluations by consultants. I contracted many of these for a large federal agency, knowing all along that whoever paid for the evaluation would usually get the answer they sought, be it a yes or no. The other point of contention is the statement the county has no one qualified to deal with the port. The statement is somewhat true but not the whole truth, as the county had a very qualified, schooltrained and experienced staffer, the only person on their staff with port experience, and they laid him off. Now to think that were going to expend more than $5,000 to train someone else to understand the workings of a port seems a bit contradictory from previous directions taken. I think most people of this county feel the port endeavor is a total waste of time and money. The undertaking of a viable channel would expend many millions of dollars long before you actually got around to constructing any port assets. And the environmental impact issues with the state and federal authorities would no doubt be tied up endlessly for years. Based upon these facts, I feel any further expenditures of money to train a port director should be at the expense of the person gaining that training. Seldom do I agree with the votes of the county commissioners, but in this case I surely do. As to the viability study itself, what has changed for a positive consideration factor since the feasibility study of the 1960s? They said it was a loser then and it is a loser now.John Cassell Homosassa As of this writing, conspiracy flake James Tracy still has a job teaching at Florida Atlantic University, despite having stated the following: While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nations news media have described. Written on his personal blog, Tracys theory ignited international outrage, more anguish in Newtown, Conn., and uncountable demands that he be fired. But instead of canning Professor Tracy, FAU should put him on display as a lab specimen of paranoia in full bloom. Let him continue teaching his Culture of Conspiracy classes and video-stream his lectures, so that students far and wide can study this bizarre psychological phenomenon. The most disturbing of historic events from Pearl Harbor to the Holocaust, from the Kennedy assassinations to the 9/11 attacks have spawned rabid cults of doubters. The Internet has given these agitated souls what they never had before: a gathering place, where they can fantasize endlessly among their own kind. Soon after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, Tracy declared that the media coverage was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends. He called the tragedy a meticulously crafted facade and hinted that the facts were being manipulated by gun-control advocates in government! Several hundred journalists were apparently duped, or secretly in league with the antigun plotters. Included by implication in the dark cabal were the eyewitnesses, survivors, first responders, coroners, Connecticut State Police and families of the victims (if there really were any victims). What made Tracy stand out from other ranting online troglodytes was his tenured position at FAU in Boca Raton. The university administration was duly embarrassed and apologetic, but also compelled to note that Tracy had posted the rubbish on his own blog, on his own time. Within days, a queasy reality took hold of the professor himself, and he began to backpedal. In an interview with West Palm Beachs WPTV, he said: In terms of saying that Sandy Hook, the Newtown massacre, did not take place is really a simplification an oversimplification of what I said. Oh, how he must have wished that were true. Then, lurching onward: I said there may very well be elements of that event that are synthetic to some degree, that are somewhat contrived. I think that, overall, the media really did drop the ball. If youre waiting to hear Tracys version of what really happened in Newtown, dont hold your breath. He hasnt specified which aspects of the press coverage were synthetic or contrived, though he has tepidly conceded that 20 first-graders probably did die from gunfire that day in the school. Well, at least those darn reporters got something right. On-scene bedlam is part of any mass murder. Conflicting and even wrong information always gets passed along in the first frantic minutes. That happened in Newtown, just as it did in lower Manhattan in 2001. It wasnt a conspiracy at Sandy Hook Elementary; it was honest human error. Lawenforcement sources told journalists things that turned out to be inaccurate (misidentifying the shooter as his brother, for example, and stating that their mother was a teacher at the school). The mistakes were corrected within hours. In the end, the facts of the crime remain hideously simple. Twenty-six people, most of them first-graders, were shot dead by a single, heavily armed man named Adam Lanza. The blood on the walls was real, the bodies were real, and so is the lifelong heartbreak. Many believe that the pain caused to the families by Tracys blogging justifies his firing by FAU. Others, including some who are mortified by his postings, say his views should be tolerated because campuses ought to be havens of intellectual freedom. Incompetence is a separate issue. That a professor of communications is so ignorant of basic news-gathering practices is pathetic, but at this point Tracys value in the classroom is not as an instructor but rather as a case study. Hes not just another academic blowhard with scant real-world experience. Hes a bona fide conspiracy kook who appears disarmingly normal. For that reason alone hes worth observing, though it remains to be seen how many students will be flocking to his lectures. If FAU dumps him, Tracy will be a hero in the sweaty universe of anti-government paranoids, who already blame sinister forces for the professors misfortunes. These days hes keeping a low profile, ducking Anderson Cooper and hunkering in the shadows of the Internet, where no idea is too repugnant to find a fan base.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Not everyone can be a rocket scientist In 2010, Senate Bill (SB) 4 was passed by the Florida Legislature with bipartisan support and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Crist. Hailed by many as an important step for raising education standards in Floridas Race to the Top, it added geometry, algebra II, biology, chemistry and physics to the list of required high school courses. While exempting students attending private schools, private charter schools and some virtual schools, the bill further mandates that every public high school student must prove they are college ready by demonstrating mastery of the required courses with the successful passing of a standardized end-of-course exam in order to receive an accredited high school diploma. As noted by critics, including Citrus County School Board member Thomas Kennedy, SB 4s good intentions may have negative consequences that could make it a recipe for disaster. In decreeing that all Florida public high school students must demonstrate they are college ready, SB 4 fails to consider the different talents, interests and aspirations of each student. Accordingly, the bills one size fits all edict brushes aside the reality that not every student has the motivation or ability to pursue a college path. This has raised concern among SB 4s critics that linking mastery of the bills rigorous requirements to a students capability to pass a standardized end-of-course exam to receive an accredited high school diploma carries the potential for discouraging those students not college-bound to drop out of school. With SB 4s focus entirely on preparing every high school student to be college ready, it also restrains the ability of school districts to offer those students interested in a technical or trade the careerready skills development to pursue their interests. Additionally, limited career-ready development opportunities promise to exacerbate the skills gap existing in Citrus County, as well as in other locales. Given that SB 4 exempts the private education sector from its rigorous requirements and an end-of-course exam thats the sole determinant as to whether or not a student receives an accredited high school diploma, there is a very real possibility that some students may choose private over public high schools. Such a student flight would certainly undermine public education in Florida. Society is comprised of individuals with different talents and aspirations. For society to prosper, it must have an educated citizenry capable of performing a vast array of skills to sustain and advance human organization. Accordingly, state lawmakers are urged to consider that in Floridas Race to the Top, not everyone should be required to become a rocket scientist.

I see no reason for multi-round magazines. In all my hunting experience, I killed deer, I killed woodchucks, I killed rabbits, squirrels and pheasants and quail, probably over 1,000, and I always did it on one shot, except now maybe 10 percent of the time, two shots. I would think that a 30or a 100-round magazine is an absolutely insane thing to even have out for public use.Kudos to Tom RestivoI just wanted to say Kudos to a Mr. Tom Restivo on his letter to the editor on Jan. 15, We are broke. This is something my husband and I talk about constantly; how were always helping other countries and cannot help those here in our own. Very well-written letter by Mr. Restivo and I appreciate somebody else having the same opinion.Who paid for plans?I have a very interesting question and I would certainly hope someone would produce an answer for it. Im wondering who paid for the proposed drawing and plans and stuff that were submitted in the paper by our commissioner, (Dennis) Damato, for Crystal River. Did he fund this himself or is this county money who paid for this? Interesting.Thanks for helpI was at Save-a-Lot last week. I got up to pay for my food. I got up in the line to pay for my food and I had got some checks from the bank. I had ordered some but they hadnt come in yet. I didnt know they called them starter checks. The stores dont accept them. This lady behind me offered to pay for my groceries. I had money but it was a Christmas gift from my son, so I didnt want to spend it on food, but I used it to pay for the bill. But I just wanted to thank that lady.

Myth and factI was appalled at the so-called cartoon on your editorial page equating assault rifle owners with Assad in Syria; a cartoon of a newspaper editor pouring gas on an orphanage fire to boost circulation would be more appropriate. In 2011, there were 323 murders involving rifles in the entire United States. This does not refer to assault rifles, but all rifles. In 2006, it was 438; in 2010, the number was 358 notice a trend here? Every year, the number of murders using rifles is decreasing, and not only that, but the total number where rifles are used compared to total murders (12,664 in 2011) is only about 2 percent. Im not saying firearms arent used in a large percentage of the murders, but those are usually handguns. More people were killed with hammers than any kind of rifle, not to mention the misnamed assault weapons. To the people wanting to register and confiscate rifles, their aim is clearly not stopping murders, or they would be after hammers, instead of rifles. Other myths promulgated by these either uninformed or intentionally misleading people are: 1. The right to bear arms should only apply to muskets. Would you argue that freedom of speech and of the press should only apply to words written on parchment with a quill pen? Of course not, the concept of God-given rights this country was founded upon was meant to be independent of technology. 2. Gun crime is lower in countries that ban firearms. Of course it is by definition there is a very low rate of shark attacks in North Dakota, but it doesnt necessarily mean its safer there than in Florida it just means there are less sharks. When you look at statistics on violent crime, the numbers are much closer, especially if you factor out the big-city gang-related homicides (where, incidentally, guns are banned). 3. Assault weapons were designed to kill as many people as possible. Actually, weapons such as the M-16 and the AK-47 were specifically designed to wound, not kill more able-bodied men are removed from the battle arena caring for wounded comrades. Thats why these rifles arent popular for hunting it usually takes repeated hits to kill a human-sized animal, unless you just happen to hit a vital area. 4. The Second Amendment was meant to apply only to the state militias, or National Guard (Which, by the way, wasnt created until 1917). In the Constitution, these phrases: right of the people peaceably to assemble, right of the people to be secure in their homes, refer to individuals, but the right of the people to keep and bear arms refers to the state does that make any sense at all? The right of Internet pornographers to exist cannot be questioned because it is Constitutionally protected by the Bill of Rights, but somehow the use of guns for self-defense is not really protected by the Bill of Rights. 5. The NRA is an extremist organization. The ACLU is good because it uncompromisingly defends certain parts of the Constitution, and the NRA is bad, because it uncompromisingly defends other parts of the Constitution. 6. We should ban highcapacity magazines for all but the police. Police usually operate in groups with backup, which is why they need larger-capacity magazines than do civilians who must face criminals alone and therefore need less ammunition whats wrong here? 7. Gun control means keeping weapons out of the wrong hands. Guess what? You have the wrong hands.Earnest J. Gallion Crystal RiverComing togetherGentlemen, our nation must come together soon lest we find ourselves in such a hole that the true meaning of Americanism will disappear. The following could be the beginning of this return. I was very happy this morning reading about Walmarts plan to help America and her people. As a veteran of WWII, I recall quite vividly how our people came together to defeat Japan and rebuild our country. This mornings article regarding Walmart to hire vets and buy American could be the beginning of America first, last and always. Walmart is in the middle of our economy and their profound proposal might very well be the start of bringing our country together. Walmart might also consider having our American flag flying over each store entrance and marking all Americanmade merchandise. Our nation is in serious trouble and we desperately need to come together, whether it be in our political environment or as true Americans.Glen Gunderson HomosassaOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, JANUARY23, 2013 A11 Prices Good Wednesday Jan. 23 through Monday, Jan. 28, 2013 *Floor Prep & Trims at Additional Cost.

Associated PressWASHINGTON More than 6 in 10 Americans now favor allowing illegal immigrants to eventually become U.S. citizens, a major increase in support driven by a turnaround in Republicans opinions after the 2012 elections. The finding, in a new Associated Press-GfK poll, comes as the Republican Party seeks to increase its meager support among Latino voters, who turned out in large numbers to help reelect President Barack Obama in November. Emboldened by the overwhelming Hispanic backing and by shifting attitudes on immigration, Obama has made overhauling laws about who can legally live in the U.S. a centerpiece of his second-term agenda. In the coming weeks, hes expected to aggressively push for ways to create an eventual pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country. The poll results suggest that the public overall, not just Hispanics, will back his efforts. Sixty-two percent of Americans now favor providing a way for illegal immigrants in the U.S. to become citizens, an increase from just 50 percent in the summer of 2010, the last time the AP polled on the question. Much of the increase in support for a path to eventual citizenship has come among Republicans. A majority in the GOP 53 percent now favor the change. Thats up a striking 22 percentage points from 2010. Associated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. The New Mexico teenager accused of gunning down five family members over the weekend ambushed his father as he returned home from an overnight shift at a rescue mission, then reloaded his rifles and planned to go to a Walmart and randomly shoot people, authorities said Tuesday. Instead, 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego texted a picture of his dead mother to his 12-year-old girlfriend, then spent much of Saturday with the girl and her family, authorities said. That evening, he went to the church where Griegos father had been a pastor, and Griego eventually confessed to killing his parents and three younger siblings. The motive, as articulated by the suspect, was purely that he was frustrated with his mother, Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston said. He did not give any further explanation. Houston said Griego had planned the shootings for at least a week, but its unclear if he ever actually went to a Walmart or why he changed his mind about continuing the attack, which occurred the same day thousands of gun advocates gathered peacefully at state capitals around the country to rally against stricter limits on firearms. The Guns Across America events were being held just after President Barack Obama unveiled a sweeping package of federal gun-control proposals. Griego told detectives he also contemplated killing his girlfriends parents, Houston said. The sheriff said he didnt know if Griegos contact with his girlfriend avoided further bloodshed. But he said she apparently knew what had happened, and officials are investigating whether she should be charged with failing to report the crime.

Harris County Sheriffs Maj. Armando Tello said both people involved in the altercation were wounded and hospitalized. He said a college maintenance man was injured in the crossfire and also taken to a hospital. Tello said a female who had a student ID also was hospitalized for a medical complication. The shooting happened before 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Lone Star College System campus about 20 miles north of downtown Houston. US commander cleared in scandalWASHINGTON U.S. defense officials said Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghan istan, has been cleared of allegations of sending potentially inappropriate emails to a civilian woman linked to the sex scandal that ousted David Petraeus as CIA director.

The citys densest neighborhoods, its favelas, blanket entire hillsides, providing most of the citys affordable housing. Now, those communities are being charted after decades of informality. Favelas find place on mapsRIO DE JANEIRO Look at most maps of Rio de Janeiro. The beaches are easy to spot, as are the iconic oceanfront neighborhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema. In the middle is a vast forest. Whats less identifiable are the blank swaths with no streets, landmarks or other signs of human habitation. Those spots are, in fact, some of the citys densest neighborhoods, its favelas, or shantytowns, that blanket entire hillsides. Though theyve long provided most of the citys affordable housing, government officials have traditionally considered them eyesores and literally left them off the map, condemning millions to legal invisibility. Now, those communities are being charted after decades of informality, each route and alley outlined and their names researched. A nonprofit group run by current and former favela residents called Redes da Mare kick-started the first mapping program in the grouping of communities known as Mare with a simple but powerful goal: putting their homes on the map, with named streets, ZIP codes and official addresses. Netanyahu wins Israel voteJERUSALEM In a stunning setback, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus hard-line bloc fared worse than expected in a parliamentary election Tuesday, exit polls showed, possibly forcing the incumbent Israeli leader to invite surprisingly strong moderate rivals into his government and soften his line toward the Palestinians.

Authorities: NM teen planned more shootings Debt-ceiling showdown Associated PressWASHINGTON Seeking to regain their budget footing versus President Barack Obama, Republicans controlling the House are moving quickly to try to defuse a potential debt crisis with legislation to prevent a first-ever U.S. default for at least three months. The Republicans are giving up for now on trying to extract spending cuts from Democrats in return for an increase in the governments borrowing cap. But the respite promises to be only temporary, with the stage still set for major battles between the GOP and Obama over taxes, spending and deficits. The first step comes Wednesday with a House vote on GOP-sponsored legislation that would give the government enough borrowing leeway to meet three months worth of obligations, delaying a showdown next month that Republicans fear they would lose. While its commonly assumed that the Treasury Department wouldnt allow a disastrous default on U.S. Treasury notes, the prospect of failing to meet other U.S. obligations such as payments to contractors, unemployment benefits and Social Security checks would also be reputationshattering. House Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders have made it plain they dont have the stomach for it. The legislation is disliked by many Democrats, but the White House weighed in Tuesday with a statement that the administration would not oppose the measure. It also appears that Senate Democrats will grudgingly accept the bill, which Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., called a big step in the right direction since the three-month GOP debt measure isnt conditioned on a dollar cut in spending for every dollar of new borrowing authority as Boehner has long demanded. The Boehner rule of 1for-1, its gone, said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. So its a good step forward and well see what happens.

C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO First, Lecanto High Schools girls basketball team tried to pressure Seven Rivers Christian School full court. It didnt work. The Panthers then tried to play half court against the Warriors. That didnt work either. It wasnt until the fourth quarter Lecanto managed to make up ground against Seven Rivers, but by then the game was decided, thanks to a third-quarter defensive stand by the Warriors that limited Lecanto to three free throws. The final score in the in-county rivalry favored Seven Rivers 57-37 and required a 14-7 fourth-quarter burst by the Panthers to make it even that close. Seven Rivers, which defeated Crystal River 58-45 last Friday, improved to 136 overall. Lecanto fell to 11-12. The girls are playing very well, Warriors coach Gary Dreyer said. Theyre working very hard on defense. Our philosophy has been to play good hard defense and it will keep you in the game. It did just that, but Seven Rivers ability to break Lecantos press to start the game proved pivotal. Aimed at disrupting Seven Rivers offense and forcing turnovers, Lecantos pressure instead resulted in easy layups and a 22-9 Warrior lead after one quarter. In the first eight minutes, Lecanto committed 11 turnovers while forcing three by Seven Rivers. Thats been the main focus of a lot of our practices, Warriors Alexis Zachar said of her teams handling opponents pressure. It got a bit better for the Panthers in the second quarter. After Seven Rivers scored the first six of the period for a 289 lead, Lecanto responded with an 11-2 run to trim it to 30-20 with 2:12 left in the half. Paige Richards hit a pair of threepointers in that run. Lady Warriors foil press from Panthers Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Novak Djokovic is really starting to get the hang of how to handle himself at the Australian Open. An expression often used Down Under Keep your shirt on is designed to discourage anyone from becoming unnecessarily overexcited. Djokovic took it literally after his 6-1, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 win Tuesday night over fifthseeded Tomas Berdych, advancing to the semifinals at an 11th consecutive Grand Slam tournament. The 2-hour, 31-minute victory took exactly half the time of his five-set, fourthround win two nights previously against Stanislas Wawrinka. In the early hours of Monday morning, Djokovic ripped his sweat-drenched shirt off and flexed his muscles, mimicking his victory celebration after the 5:53 victory over Rafael Nadal in the 2012 Australian Open final. That was acceptable at the time to the Rod Laver Arena crowd, which was still abuzz at 1:40 a.m. following five sets of high-level tennis. After the Berdych match, however, he realized there was no need to raise the roof. Djokovic calmly pumped his fist once and walked to the net; he later joked about the ice baths hed taken in between matches on the advice of local hero Lleyton Hewitt.

Hes also familiar with winning. Crystal River High School principal Mark McCoy and activities director Tony Stukes announced Tuesday the hiring of Palmetto High School defensive coordinator Nathan Varnadore as head coach. Varnadore, 28, will become the programs third head coach in four years. Varnadore will meet with coaches, players and parents Thursday and begin working at the school in the social studies department Monday. He also will take over as the boys weightlifting coach this spring. Despite his relative youth, Varnadore already possesses a variety of coaching experience, which includes trips to the postseason in five of his past six years as an assistant and defensive coach at Palmetto. His Tigers advanced to the 5A regional semifinals last season, finishing with a 9-4 record and making it to the state semifinals behind a 12-2 record in 2011. Varnadores defense was ranked No. 1 in 5A for the 2011 season while the team climbed to No. 2 in the state poll. Hes been very successful at Palmetto, where hes worked in a good program, Crystal River activities director Tony Stukes said Tuesday. He interviewed very well and was very excited about our program. I think hes going to bring some energy and great ideas. Stukes said the school received more than 50 applicants for the job and interviewed six candidates. Varnadore compared Crystal River to the Palmetto he grew up in and said the area was already on his radar as a possible future destination. Some of my best friends frequent Crystal River to fish and scallop, and hearing how great an area it is, its always intrigued me, said Varnadore, who is married with a 4-yearold son and 5-month-old daughter. I had said that if it came open, Id like to put my hat in. Crystal River went 6-4 overall last season and 4-3 under second-year head coach Greg Fowler before he was suspended and eventually relieved of his coaching duties for using inappropriate language. Interim head coach Randy Owens, a former Pirate standout in football and track, led Crystal River to a 2-1 record after Fowlers departure. The Pirates lost on a last-second field goal to District 5A-5 champion Gainesville Eastside the Friday before Fowlers suspension and were undone by a fourth-quarter comeback by 5A5 rival Dunnellon a week later on Oct. 26.

The No. 1 seed Hurricanes scored four first-half goals against No. 8 Hernando in only 17 minutes. They tapped in three more in the second half, which was more than the Canes needed to shutout the Leopards 7-0 for the win. Senior Tyler Beagan (two goals) started the Hurricane onslaught in the opening two minutes during Citrus first trip into Hernando territory, scoring a goal off a header. Beagan rounded out the Citrus tally in the 70th minute with the seventh goal of the game. Austin Killeen followed Beagan with two goals of his own. One was from a penalty kick and a second six minutes later off an accurate pass from teammate Joshua Marsden (two assists), giving Citrus the 3-0 advantage 10 minutes into the game.

For information, call Lori Beiswenger at 352-726-3113. From staff reports Idid the math and figured I have played golf for more than 44 years. The equipment has changed drastically since that first day when I picked out my first set of clubs in the sporting goods department of my local department store. My father and I stood in front of three sets of right-handed clubs. A set of Patty Bergs made by Wilson became my first starter set, complete with putter and red plaid bag. There was never a question about rightor lefthanded, as every set was right-handed. It did not matter I was a left-handed 8 year old. Times have changed. Golf balls also have advanced since those days. Gone are the days of surlyn and balata covers and compressions of 90 and 100. I remember how my mother had to use a certain type and specific numbered golf ball a Maxfli number 8. She believed she played her best with this ball and only this type of ball. She would be amazed at the choices of today. And maybe her handicap could have been lower if she had as many choices as we do today. Our choices now include urethane and ionomer covers. The compressions of golf balls are lower than they were 20 years ago. In those days, if you used a lower compression ball with a higher swing speed, the ball would balloon too high in the air because of the high spin rate. There are golf balls with compressions as low as 45 and as high as 90. Which one of these is right for you? Choose a golf ball that is best for your swing speed. Not sure what your swing speed is? If you drive the ball less than 200 yards, your swing speed is on the slower side. Try a golf ball with a lower compression. A lower compression golf ball will help the ball go farther. For example, the Bridgestone B330 RX has a compression of 60 to 65. This ball gives you less spin off the tee to hit straighter, yet gives you the control around the greens with your irons. This ball is a popular choice for performance similar to the Pro V1 but is geared toward the lower swing speed. The Titleist DT Solo is also a lower compression ball. A Titleist ProV1 and Pro V1x is a perfect golf ball for higher swing speeds along with the Bridgestone B330S. Check with your local golf professional to choose the right ball for you. The right golf ball is important for all levels of golfers, but it is especially important for higher handicapped golfers.Marion Walker is the general manager at Seven Rivers Golf and Country Club in Crystal River.

Marion WalkerMOVE WITH MARION Special to the ChronicleMarion Walker advises selecting a ball, above, to match your swing speed for the best benefits.Match swing with best ball DOUGFERGUSON AP golf writerSAN DIEGO Based on his record alone, there could be cause for alarm the way Tiger Woods started his season. Woods never finished out of the top 10 in his season opener until his 13th season, when he was coming off reconstructive surgery on his left knee and was eliminated in the second round of the Match Play Championship. He was eliminated on the second day of the Abu Dhabi Championship in memorable fashion a late rally to seemingly make the cut with one shot to spare, only to be informed he was not supposed to get relief from an imbedded lie in sandy soil on the fifth hole. Two shots were added to his score, and Woods was on his way back with only the 10th missed cut of his career, his first outside the PGA Tour and a bad start to the year. The more important measure, however, is this week at Torrey Pines. Woods has won seven times as a pro on this track along the Pacific bluffs. Its a public course, but it feels as if he owns it. Such is his dominance at Torrey Pines that after the first round of the 2008 Buick Invitational, when Woods opened with a 67 on the South Course, a caddie standing behind the 18th green said, He just won two tournaments with one round. Sure enough, Woods won that week by eight shots, and then won the U.S. Open that summer on a mangled knee in a playoff. That was his 14th and at the moment, his last major championship. That also was his last win at Torrey Pines. He didnt play in 2009 because he was still recovering from knee surgery. He didnt play in 2010 because he was recovering from the humiliating collapse in his personal life. The last time he played Torrey Pines was in 2011, which turned out to be the worst season of his career. He was embarking on a brand-new swing, his game was a wreck and it showed. Woods went 74-75 on the weekend and tied for 44th. Where is he now? Its nice to be healthy, to be able to train and practice and do all of the things that I know I can do, Woods said Tuesday after playing the back nine on the South Course. Its definitely a very different feeling, so its nice to be back. Its nice to get out there and play a course that I know. When it comes to horses for courses, Woods is a thoroughbred at Torrey Pines. The only course comparable to his success level at Torrey would be Firestone, where he has won seven times and never finished out of the top 10 until 2010 and 2011, both times when his game was a mess. He has won seven times at Bay Hill, but thats different from the other two because Woods has seven finishes out of the top 10. Bay Hill always has been feast or famine. This has always been a pretty good benchmark, hasnt it? Geoff Ogilvy said. If he doesnt win this week, it certainly wouldnt be a disaster. Woods is getting older, and the competition is getting deeper every year. Winning is not as easy as it was. But how he plays this week could be a fair measure of his game going into a pivotal year when the balance of power has shifted to 23year-old Rory McIlroy. Woods talks a lot about the courses where he feels most comfortable, with Torrey Pines and Firestone at the top of his list. He also includes Augusta National and St. Andrews. Most telling was his last win at Torrey Pines. He was runner-up at the Masters that year, and then had arthroscopic surgery to repair some cartilage damage in his left knee that caused him to miss Quail Hollow and The Players Championship. He was getting ready for the U.S. Open when doctors found two stress fractures of the left tibia and recommended six weeks off, which he ignored. So when he showed up at Torrey Pines, the opening round was the first time he had walked 18 holes since the final at the Masters. Of his 14 majors, this was among the most remarkable, foremost because of the injury. Test at Torrey Pines Golf course is good gauge for Woods Associated PressThe better measure for Tiger Woods is Torrey Pines since it is one of five golf courses accounting for more than 40 percent of his PGA Tour wins.

JAMESBLEVINS CorrespondentAfter local girls varsity soccer teams played some tough matches in their respective district playoffs last week, the real competition is only just beginning as FHSAA regional soccer quarterfinals begin today for the Crystal River Pirates, Citrus Hurricanes and Lecanto Panthers. The Lady Pirates travel to Gainesville for a 7 p.m. start against District 2A-5 champs Keystone Heights for the Class 2A Region 2 quarterfinal. Head coach Bill Reyes helped lead his team to only its third regional berth in school history last week. Im truly proud of my girls for getting to regionals for the third time in four years, Reyes said. This years senior class broke into regionals for the first time in school history four years ago and closes their careers in fitting fashion by getting to regionals again (this year). Senior Aubrie Menster made a splash in the district tournament for the Pirates by scoring the tying goal to put the Pirates in overtime against South Sumter in the semifinals. Then three minutes into OT, she scored the gamewinning goal, punching the Pirates ticket to the championship game. Seeded No. 2 in their District 2A-6 tournament, the Lady Pirates took home the consolation prize against No. 1 Trinity Catholic, which shut out and mercy-ruled Crystal River in the second half of the finals. Crystal River is one of the few teams to force a second half against Trinity Catholic, which has really turned some heads as a heavy state-title favorite in its respective class by regularly mercy-ruling its opponents in the first 40 minutes of play. If the Pirates defeat Keystone Heights today, they will face the soccer juggernaut Trinity Catholic in the semifinals. The Citrus Lady Canes meet Palatka in Putnam County at 7 p.m. for their Class 3A Region 2 quarterfinal match. Its been awhile since Citrus has been on the regional stage, and we are looking forward to making the most of it, Citrus head coach Ian Feldt said. Our upperclassmen have been waiting a long time to get here, and I expect them to be ready. A player to watch in regionals is senior Deycasha Miller, whose lone goal in the semifinals against Eustis propelled her team into the finals. Citrus, seeded No. 3 in the district, comes out of its 3A-6 district tournament as the runner-up to champ Nature Coast, which shut out the Lady Canes 3-0 in the final. The Canes went through Hernando and Eustis to get there, but couldnt muster enough shots on goal against the Sharks during the championship to take the title and earn homefield advantage for regional play. Lecanto is the only team to earn such an advantage, having come out of its district tournament as repeating 4A-4 champions. The Lady Panthers will host their Class 4A Region 1 quarterfinal today at 7 p.m. against the visiting Rideview Panthers. The Lady Panthers defeated district rival Springstead 1-0 in a nailbiter of a final. Lecanto hopes to erase the bitter aftertaste of last years regional quarterfinal loss to the Orange Park Raiders. We are excited to host another regional quarterfinal, Lecanto head coach Roselle Lattin said. Last year was a disappointment, losing in double overtime (2-1 to Orange Park). We hope to extend our season by winning the first round. Freshman Laura Hamilton answered the call for the Panthers during the district tournament last week. Hamilton scored all three goals in Lecantos two wins of the tournament (2-0 over Gainesville and 1-0 over Springstead) while teammate and fellow freshman goalkeeper Meagan Houpt produced some of her best saves of the season to ensure her team would retain its second district crown. During each tournament, maybe even each tennis match, things happen concerning the rules for which we players do not have a direct answer. A lot of times, it will result in calling a let, thinking that it is the right thing to do. It seems like some players still have not heard of the new rule concerning reversing out calls. We all are used to playing a let (depending on who hit what where) after correcting an out call to an in call. That has changed with the new rule the who and what are gone. No more gray area. You correct the call, you lose the point. What stays the same as always is being honest; after all, it is just a game. You can find the change in Friend at Court in part 2 of The Code, section Making Calls, paragraph 12. Out calls reversed. A player who calls a ball out shall reverse the call if the player becomes uncertain or realizes the ball was good. The point goes to the opponent and is not replayed. However, when a receiver reverses a fault call on a serve that hit the net, the server is entitled to two serves. Another question was: Who wins the point when a player hits a ball around the net post into the opponents court and opponent does not return shot? The player hitting the shot wins the point. If the opponent returns shot, the ball is in play and the point continues. It is always a good idea to carry Friend at Court in your tennis bag.

I made one under big pressure already, but I knew this was the game I had to make it; there was no other choice. The Hurricanes won the first 10-minute overtime session in terms of controlling the game while the second session was a draw. Lecantos sophomore goalkeeper, Ryan Stevens, set the tone in the penaltykick session. After giving up the first goal to Gainesvilles Grant Phillips, Stevens made back-to-back saves on Ryan Turner and Bryce Nesbit. Lecanto had a 3-1 lead thanks to Michael Summa, Jimmy Carr and Chad Howard making their goals. The drama though was just starting. Gainesvilles Zak Woodward beat Stevens while Lecanto sophomore Evan Chapman was stonewalled by Moseley. With the score 3-2 in favor of Lecanto, Ciao De Silva knotted it 3-3 beating Stevens. It was then left on the shoulders of Rice and he delivered. Rice and the four other Lecanto seniors Summa, Scott Stearns, John Swander and Luis Lieva were appreciative of the sophomores effort in the net. That is really an exciting thing, Stevens said. My saves gave the seniors another day to play and a shot at a district championship. What more can you ask for? asked Rice (Stevens) saved a penalty kick that really secured the win for us and had a shutout for 100 minutes. You couldnt ask for a better keeper. Stevens has been a goalie for seven years and Tuesday night was his first-ever appearance in a penalty-kick finish. He admitted he was a little nervous, but then settled down. After that first and second save, it gave me some confidence, Stevens said. Then it was just praying that my teammates would pull through for me. The Panthers (11-7-3) will practice this afternoon and return to Ocala on Thursday for the 7 p.m. District 4A-4 semifinal contest against the undefeated host school Forest (18-0-2). During the regular season, Forest defeated Lecanto both times 1-0. Im ready to get back and play them again, Rice said. The rest of the team is ready. We want it. We get another shot. That is all we can ask for, Lecanto head coach Doug Warren said. To be the best you have to bet the best. But Seven Rivers scored the final four of the half to lead 34-20 at the break. Then the Warriors put it away with a 16-3 third-quarter onslaught. The Zachar sisters, Alexis and Andrea, sparked the run by scoring six and four points apiece. Alexis Zachar, who scored 11 points in the first quarter, finished with a game-high 24. Andrea Zachar scored 13. Richards paced Lecanto with 19 points. We had spurts of (success with the press), but not everyone is on the same page, Lecanto coach Brittany Szunko said. Were working on getting all minds clicking at the same time. We were very spotty tonight. Were looking for a core group we can count on. Were trying to get a little more fight, a little more pride. Defender Justin Carnivale brought Citrus into halftime up by four goals with his 17th minute penalty kick goal. Citrus completely owned a very chippy Leopard team, whose one major accomplishment of the game was to disrupt the Canes from a mercy-rule victory in the first half which Citrus seemed poised to do. With strong showings in the backfield by Beagan, Carnivale and Noah MacGinnis, Hernando struggled to muster any form of an offensive threat. Citrus outshot Hernando 14-3 in the game. Goals from Citrus Jake Thatcher (48th minute), Rudy Salazar (56th minute) and Beagan in the second half put the game handily out of reach. In fact, the Canes seemed to lay back and milk their impressive lead for the last 40 minutes. Citrus head coach Phil Journey wasnt impressed with some aspects of his teams play despite the clean sheet win, but was pleased to move forward to the next challenge. We had some good passing, Journey said. We didnt play spectacular. We had some great headers lead by Tyler Beagan. Overall, it was a very mediocre game. It got us on to the next one, he added. Citrus next opponent will be the winner of the No. 4 Weeki Wachee vs. No. 5 Tavares quarterfinal game.

BOWLERS OF THE WEEK: Cheryl Shafer, 142 pins over her average, and Eddie Corbitt, 204 pins over his average. LARRYBUGG CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER It was Ty Reynolds night and he did what he usually does on the basketball court. The 6-foot-1 Crystal River High School junior point guard scored 17 points and grabbed five rebounds, leading the Pirates to a 51-36 victory against Dunnellon. Reynolds was honored before the game after scoring his 1,000th career point in a recent game against Hernando High School. He was given the game ball. It feels magnificent, Reynolds said of scoring his 1,000th point. We played good. The first time we played, they beat us by five. I guess we showed them whos boss. Seventeen (points) is good. I try to score more to get more exposure from colleges. But I had Sam Franklin and he did well tonight. Im not going to try to force them. The Pirates coach is happy to leave the ball in Reynolds hands. He is a scoring point guard, Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman said. We want him to be a volume shooter, because Ty can create his own shots. He can take his shots off the dribble. He gets to the line. He averages getting to the line 10 times a game. He averages 22 points, seven rebounds and four assists. He is starting to get some looks from some northern schools. Hes good student, levelheaded kid. Hes a joy to coach. Reynolds had some help as 6-foot-5 post player Sam Franklin scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the non-district game. Crystal River (9-10 overall) took an 11-4 first-quarter lead as Reynolds hit six points. The Pirates went on to outscore the Tigers 15-13 in the second quarter for a 26-17 lead at halftime. Dunnellon threatened to make it a game by sinking 11 point compared to Crystal Rivers 10 points in the third quarter. Desmond Frazier and Andre Hairston hit five points apiece for the Tigers. They really play a flat man-toman, the Crystal River coach said. We struggled for awhile against the 1-2-2 defense they used in the third quarter. But the Pirates restored order in the fourth quarter, outscoring their foes 15-8. Damien Westfall led the Pirates with six points. The Pirates played somewhat cleanly, only turning the ball over six and committing nine personal fouls. The Pirates head coach loved his teams defensive play. Any time you give up just 36 points you have to be real happy, Feldman said. I told them that at halftime. They didnt get a ton of clean looks. I thought they never got into any kind of flow. We challenged shots. I thought we also limited them. Defensively, I was very happy. This team can be explosive at times. Reynolds leads Pirates past Tigers on home court JOEKORNECKIIII CorrespondentINVERNESS The Citrus Hurricanes boys basketball team defeated district opponent Brooksville Central 78-76 on Tuesday night when Kyle Presnicks basket ripped the net as time expired in the second overtime to lift the Canes to a thrilling victory. We spent a lot of the game trailing, Citrus head coach Tom Densmore said. We had to score at the end of regulation to get to overtime. It was a low-scoring game that became a high-scoring game ... and we finally put them away. We needed that district win badly. Daniel Robinson hit two free throws to give the Bears (4-14 overall, 1-6 district) a 55-53 lead with 14.3 seconds remaining in the game; however, Citrus refused to lose. Devin Pryor (35 points, 8 steals) was fouled on the arm with 0.2 seconds remaining, and he had to hit two clutch free throws under pressure to send the game into overtime. He did it, sending the game into overtime tied at 55 apiece. In the first overtime, Centrals Joey Stokes (25 points, including six 3pointers) hit a basket to give Central a 57-55 lead. He followed it with a 3pointer for a six-point lead with 2:23 remaining. From this point, the Bears appeared in control. But Citrus refused to throw in the towel. Mitchell Ellis (11 points) hit a trifecta to bring the Canes(13-7, 5-2) within three at 61-58. Robinson (27 points) put the Bears back up with a bucket to increase their lead to five. However, the Canes battled back. Pryor scored the next six points, giving the Canes the lead 64-63 with 15.7 seconds remaining. A bad Citrus foul behind the arc put Stokes at the stripe, and he knocked down all three free throws for a 66-64 Bears advantage. But Citrus struck again. When Ellis was fouled intentionally with 1.6 seconds left, he knocked down both free throws, sending the game into a second overtime tied at 66-66 all. In the second overtime, with Citrus leading 73-72, Jemarcus Hayes assisted to Robinson for the basket underneath to give the Bears a one-point lead. But Pryor struck followed with a bucket for a 75-74 lead. With the Canes leading 76-74 after an Ellis free throw, it was the Bears turn to hit clutch free throws. Robinson sunk both to knot the game at 76 apiece, setting up Presnicks dramatic gamewinning basket from the top of the key. The gym erupted in cheers, as Citrus walked off with a 78-76 victory. Presnick hit three 3-pointers in all for an 11-point total. Randy Lynn was in double figures with 11 points. Ben Janicki had six points off the bench in the first half. I just made the shot, Presnick said. I missed half the season ... and I was happy to be out there and win a game for my team.

From staff reports SEANARNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO A combination of woeful shooting by Seven Rivers Christian and superior second-half rebounding and foul-shooting by Lecanto helped lift the Panthers boys basketball squad to a 53-33 victory at the Warrior gym Tuesday. Consecutive baskets by Seven Rivers freshman Zac Saxer narrowed the Lecanto (14-6) lead to 33-29 with 4:20 to play in the game, but the Warriors (9-8) who were 12-for-50 from the field and 5-of-13 at the foul line were forced to foul down the stretch and never mustered enough offense from that point on to rally its way back into the game. Meanwhile, Lecanto got seven fourth-quarter points apiece from sophomore Darius Sawyer and junior guard Thomas Vilardi (two steals) to deliver the knockout. The Warriors scored seven of the games first 10 points in the third period before a dunk by Sawyer late in the quarter kickstarted 11 unanswered points by the Panthers. We didnt do a very good job of boxing out and positioning in the second half, Seven Rivers coach Jim Ervin said. Its tough to win any game going 12-of-50 from the floor. I dont think Lecanto did anything special. It was just one of those nights where we didnt knock down open looks. We played well early and we should of had a lead at halftime, but didnt. If anyone watched the game, it was closer than a 20-point game. Sawyer, who connected on a 3, was hot from all points on the court to lead the game with 17 points. With (senior) Richie Rizollo being out, we have to rely on Darius, Lecanto coach Frank Vilardi said. Hes the next guy up for us and he did exactly what we needed him to do. Senior point guard Matt Michelet was Lecantos other double-digit scorer with 11 points, and Warriors junior Adam Gage had an off night while managing a team-high 11 points. Youve got to give (junior guard) Connor Dupler a lot of credit for how he covered Gage in the second half, Vilardi said. I thought our entire team played great defense and ended each possession with good rebounding. Seven Rivers won the battle at the boards in the first quarter and held an 11-3 advantage with a minute remaining in the opening period. But bolstered by a strong second-quarter performance by senior forward Robert Vega (10 rebounds), who had six rebounds and five points in the quarter, the Panthers bounced back in outscoring the Warriors 15-3 in the period to lead 2016 at halftime. Robert Vega played phenomenal tonight, rebounding and defending, Vilardi said. (Senior center) Geoffrey Ruiz (seven rebounds, three steals) and (sophomore forward) Brandon Burich did as well. Thats what they do rebound the ball and they did a great job. Lecanto celebrates senior night Thursday against Dunnellon at 7:30 p.m., while Seven Rivers plays at South Sumter that night. Lecanto routs Seven Rivers, 53-33

Associated PressTampa Bay Lightning goalie Mathieu Garon eyes the puck as teammate Eric Brewer, center, takes the Carolina Hurricanes Jeff Skinner, right, out of the play during the third period of Tuesdays game in Raleigh, N.C. Garon had 36 saves in the Lightnings 4-1 win. Crystal River last made the playoffs in 2008 as a district runner-up under former head coach George Arscott, whose record was 20-12 at the school, and won a district title under Anthony Paradiso in 2007 with a 9-3 overall record. Varnadore described the Pirates as a sleeping giant. I think Crystal River has a lot of potential to go to the next level, he said. I feel well definitely contend for district titles, and my goal is for us to not just make the playoffs, but to be competitive at that level when we get there. Varnadore expects his defenses to swarm to the ball with an attacking, aggressive style. He explained his offenses will have multiple looks, citing the need to shape systems around the ability and strengths of the players. My core belief, offensively, is that you need to get the ball to your playmakers, no matter what, said Varnadore, who mentioned 6-foot-4 Pirates sophomore receiver Sam Franklin and junior standout Ty Reynolds. That helps provide excitement for the fans and it gets the most exposure for the kids and will allow us to play to our strengths. Varnadore got his start as a junior coach for Carson-Newman College, a Division II Baptist liberal arts college in Jefferson City, Tenn., where he worked under head coach Ken Sparks, a winner of more than 300 games and five national championships. At Palmetto, Varnadore operated as a recruiting coordinator with a focus on helping student athletes find a place at Division II and III colleges, which bodes well for Crystal River football players seeking to play at the next level. Im a believer that if a player has goals and works hard and does the things we ask, (he) can play in college somewhere, Varnadore said. Kids want to know how they can benefit, so you dont want to waste their time. If youre realistic from day one, theyll play hard for you.SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, JANUARY23, 2013 B5 NBA standingsEASTERN CONFERENCE Atlantic Division WLPctGB New York2514.641 Brooklyn2516.6101 Boston2021.4886 Philadelphia1725.4059 Toronto1526.36611 Southeast Division WLPctGB Miami2612.684 Atlanta2318.5614 Orlando1427.34113 Charlotte1031.24417 Washington930.23117 Central Division WLPctGB Indiana2616.619 Chicago2416.6001 Milwaukee2218.5503 Detroit1625.3909 Cleveland1132.25615 WESTERN CONFERENCE Southwest Division WLPctGB San Antonio3311.750 Memphis2614.6505 Houston2221.51210 Dallas1824.42914 New Orleans1427.34117 Northwest Division WLPctGB Oklahoma City329.780 Denver2518.5818 Utah2219.53710 Portland2021.48812 Minnesota1721.44713 Pacific Division WLPctGB L.A.

Lighting-quick shift Tampa Bay tops Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 COACHContinued from Page B1 It was a great performance. I was hoping to have a shorter match ... just not to go over 5 hours, Djokovic said, in a comparatively subdued mood after a considerably more routine victory. Its always going to be tough against Tomas; hes an established player. He has a big game, big serve. He can compete against anyone on any surface. In the semifinals, Djokovic will meet No. 4-seeded David Ferrer. Ferrer survived a quarterfinal battle with fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro. Almagro had three chances to serve for the match, but Ferrer broke each time. A usually mild-mannered pro, Ferrer showed his aggression at times when he threatened to spike his racket and even smashed his water bottle in the changeover after hed dropped serve in a frustrating fourth set that featured eight breaks of serve. Hed never lost to Almagro in 12 previous meetings and, as the No. 1 Spaniard in the draw in the absence of 11-time major winner Rafael Nadal, felt a responsibility to reach the semis. It was (a) miracle I won this match, Ferrer said of his comeback 4-6, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4), 6-2 win. I tried to fight every point; thats my game. I always fight. Ferrer survived once in the third set and twice in the fourth when Almagro was serving for the match, but held his nerve and finally advanced to his third semifinal in the last four Grand Slam events. In the important moments, I played more consistent in my game, Ferrer said. DJOKOVICContinued from Page B1

SAMANTHA CRITCHELL AP fashion writerWASHINGTON Michelle Obama made it a fashion tradition Monday night, wearing a custom-made Jason Wu gown to the inauguration balls. The ruby-colored dress was a follow-up to the white gown Wu made for her four years ago when she was new to Washington, the pomp and circumstance, and the fashion press. She now emerged in velvet and chiffon as a bona fide trendsetter. I cant believe it. Its crazy, said Wu, reached at his Manhattan studio. To have done it once was already the experience of my life. To have a second time is tremendous. President Barack Obama also struck a similar style chord to his first-term inaugural balls: He wore a white tie with his tuxedo. The red halter dress was the only one Wu, who went from fashion insider to household name on this night in 2009, submitted for Mrs. Obamas consideration. He collaborated with jeweler Kimberly McDonald on the jeweled neckline. For this occasion, it had to be real diamonds, Wu said. He said he felt the dress showed how he has grown up as a designer and how Mrs. Obamas style has evolved to be even more confident. The first family headed out to inaugural festivities earlier on Monday with Mrs. Obama leading a very coordinated fashion parade in a navy-silk, checkered-patterned coat and dress by Thom Browne that were inspired by a menswear necktie. The outfit was specifically designed for Mrs. Obama, but Browne said he wasnt 100 percent sure she was going to wear it until she came out with it on at Inauguration. I am proud and humbled, he said. The rest of Mrs. Obamas Inauguration Day outfit included a belt from J. Crew, necklace by Cathy Waterman and a cardigan by Reed Krakoff, whose ensemble she also wore to yesterdays intimate, indoor swearing-in ceremony. Obama wore a blue tie with his white shirt, dark suit and overcoat. Malia Obama had on a plum-colored J. Crew coat with the hemline of an electric-blue dress peeking out and a burgundy-colored scarf, and her younger sister Sasha had on a Kate Spade coat and dress in a similar purple shade. It is an honor that Sasha Obama chose to wear Kate Spade New York, said the companys creative director, Deborah Lloyd, in an email to the Associated Press. She epitomizes the youthful optimism and colorful spirit of the brand. We are so proud to have been a part of this historic moment. Jenna Lyons, creative director of J. Crew, said it was a huge point of pride for all of us to be a part of the day as the brand was back in 2009 when the girls wore outfits by CrewCuts, its childrens label. The vice presidents wife, Jill Biden, wore a gray coat and dress by American designer Lela Rose. Mrs. Obama has worn Brownes designs for other occasions, including a gray dress with black lace overlay to one of the presidential debates last fall, and she honored him last summer at the Smithsonians Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards for his contribution to fashion. Browne made his name in modern very modern menswear, but he launched womenswear in 2011. He was in Paris on Monday, just finishing previews for his next menswear collection. The idea to use the tie fabric came to him because he was indeed designing these mens clothes at the same time, he explained. I wanted tailored for her. For me, she stands for strength and confidence, and thats what I wanted to design for her, he said. Simon Collins, dean of the school of fashion at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, said the Obamas dressed in their typical fashion: one that shows pride in their appearance. They are a stylish couple and their children look fabulous. Too many people get dressed in the dark, he said. They show its good to dress up, take pride in how you look. ... Its a wonderful example for America and the rest of the world. He also noted that the Obamas seem to understand that the fashion industry is a driving force in the U.S. economy and that its lobby is a powerful one. They dont treat fashion frivolously, he observed. The first lady is so supportive of so many American designers, Browne noted. But Collins said he was a bit surprised the public doesnt pay much attention to the presidents wardrobe. He joked that Obama should perhaps try one of Brownes signature shrunken suits the ones that show a mans ankles. At the end of the Inaugural festivities, Mrs. Obamas outfit and accompanying accessories will go to the National Archives.Fashion tradition Birthday If you want more out of life, its extremely important to elevate your sights in the year ahead.

The Supreme CourtWhat Does a Justice Do? When President Barack Obama is inaugurated on Jan. 21, the person who will be giving the oath, or promise, is the chief justice (or judge in charge) of the United States. This year, as at President Obamas first inauguration, that will be Chief Justice John Roberts. Justice Sonia Sotomayor will swear in Vice President Joe Biden. This week, The Mini Page learns more about the Supreme Court and what a justice does. The Supreme Court The Supreme Court is the United States highest court. The justices must decide how laws are followed and whether our laws agree with the U.S. Constitution. This is called judicial (joo-DISH-uhl) review. In the United States, the Supreme Court is an appellate court. This means that the court decides cases that are being appealed after making their way through the lower courts. For example, in the mid-1960s, two high school students in Des Moines, Iowa, wore black armbands to school to protest against the Vietnam War. School officials suspended them. The students and their families sued, or took legal action against the school district. They believed the First Amendment, which promises the right to free speech, protected their protest. The case was presented in the U.S. District Court, where the verdict, or decision, agreed with the school. The case eventually went to the Supreme Court, which overturned or changed, the verdict.Our highest court The justices work at the Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C. The building was finished in 1935. Before moving to this building, the Supreme Court met in the Capitol. The building has one large courtroom, offices for each of the justices, a court library and offices for other workers. It also has a dining room and a gym. The seated figures on either side of the steps are titled The Contemplation of Justice and The Authority of Law. Chief Justice John Roberts (on the far right) swears in President Barack Obama at his first inauguration on Jan. 20, 2009.

They can also resign, retire or be impeached, or removed from office. When a seat on the court opens, the president nominates someone to be a new justice.

There are two types of cases: criminal, in which someone has committed a crime. civil, or cases in which people or organizations are arguing about something. A trial verdict may be appealed to a state or federal appeals court. Someone who loses at this level may ask the Supreme Court to review the lower courts decision. The Supreme Court usually hears cases that will decide important legal principles. Out of thousands of may choose about 150 of them.The first woman justice Sandra Day OConnor was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1981 by President Ronald Reagan. She was the first woman to serve on the court. Justice OConnor grew up on a cattle ranch in Arizona. She went to Stanford University and received a law degree, but many law firms did not hire women lawyers in 1952, when she graduated. Finally, in 1965, she was hired as assistant attorney general for the state of Arizona. Deciding a case On the first Monday in October of each year, the Supreme Court begins its new term. Once the Supreme Court has accepted a case for review, the two sides present their arguments to young law school graduates who study cases and discuss them with the justice. They may also examine all the records from the case and ask The justices meet with each other to talk about the case. Sometimes this takes months. Then they offer their opinion. At least five votes are needed to make a decision. One of the justices writes a summary of the opinion. A justice who dissented, or disagreed, may write an opposing argument. Sandra Day OConnor was the first woman associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. She retired in 2006.How do they decide? The decisions of the Supreme Court can have important impacts on Americans daily lives. Supreme Court justices use the Constitution and previous court decisions to help them make judgments about current cases. In fact, they may disagree about the outcome of an earlier case and write a decision that goes against one from years before. For example, some of the Supreme Courts early decisions supported the for blacks and whites. (We call this segregation.)

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY23, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.In Star Trek: The Next Generation, Commander Deanna Troi said, Higher emotions are what separate us from the lower orders of life. Higher emotions ... and table manners. This week we are looking at defenders leading high or low cards from various holdings. The general principle is to lead low from length when you have at least one honor in that suit. With no honor, you lead an unnecessarily high card. But, as I mentioned yesterday, the most common exception occurs when you lead partners suit. Then, if you have not supported that suit, giving length information is more important than strength information. In this example, what should West lead against two spades when he has or has not raised hearts? Should West bid two hearts? It is a borderline decision. The pluses are showing support and some values, and perhaps making Norths rebid more awkward. The minuses are the scant values and the lack of a heart honor; if North becomes the declarer, East might make a losing heart lead. If West has not supported hearts, he should lead the three: low from length. But if he has raised, he should start with the nine: top of nothing. Moving on, how can East-West defeat two spades? The defenders must take two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. And this requires getting the diamond tricks established before South can discard a diamond from the dummy on his heart jack. East should win the first trick and shift to the diamond queen, which is easier to find when West has raised hearts and led the nine to deny an honor.

I head back to America in a few weeks. I can honestly say I havent missed being home. Ive absolutely loved my stay in Europe. I feel safe and happy. The one thing Im dreading is reverse culture shock. Im afraid Ill resent my small-town college or that Ill become depressed when I get home. All of my friends will have left for their own study-abroad adventures. No one will be able to speak the Italian Ive learned and help me maintain my fluency. The foods and pastimes that Ive become fond of are nonexistent in America. My European friends say I should just enjoy the little time I have left abroad and keep positive thoughts when Im back in America, but I dont expect my reimmersion process to be that easy. How can I learn to stop living like a dead man walking and not fall into a pit of despair once I board the plane home? Pining for Rome Dear Rome: Please recognize how fortunate you are to have had the opportunity to spend time in Europe and the fact that youve enjoyed it so much. You will miss your Italian friends and Italian pasta, but try not to over-romanticize the experience. Accept it for the short-term fun it was, and know that you can certainly return whenever you can afford to do so. How well you adjust depends entirely on your attitude. Be determined to make it as positive as possible. Dear Annie: I have a problem with my parents decorating habits. They insist on putting up artwork that I did when I was a child. The dining room, living room and bedrooms all have pictures that I drew or painted from the time I was 6 until I was 17. I have repeatedly asked that they remove them, but they say they cant bear to take them down. Mind you, they have no such pictures from my sisters childhood. In fact, they dont even display pictures their grandchildren have drawn. I know its their house, but Im a 35-year-old man, and I dont want people to see this stuff and think I still do such childish collages. It also feels creepy. Its like my parents arent allowing me to grow up. My father insists on telling people I am an artist. At one time, I wanted to be, but now I am a high school teacher and proud of it. How can people take me seriously after talking to my parents? My father says being an artist is special and interesting, and he becomes unhappy if I ask him to describe me differently. Ive gotten so fed up that I dread visiting their home, especially when they have guests. What do I do? Not an Artist Dear Artist: So your parents think being an artist is ever so much more glamorous than other professions, and they prefer to fantasize about your job. Your attempts to force them to change will only make all of you miserable. Who cares what their friends think? As long as you conduct yourself appropriately and correct any misimpressions, no one will mistake you for a 9-year-old with fingerpaints. We know its annoying, but please try to ignore this. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Dreading Christmas, whose husbands two siblings take turns hosting Christmas Eve dinners in their homes, but they wont let her reciprocate because she doesnt want to have it in her house. I have two sisters who love hosting Thanksgiving dinner and alternate each year. They have lovely china and beautiful homes. I have always lived in a small house, but we have a beautiful yard and garden. We reciprocate by hosting a barbecue on Labor Day weekend. Maybe Dreading Christmas could do something like this.

Celebrate Reading is a session consisting of two programs geared toward helping preschool and elementary school-age children develop literacy skills, improve their reading and gain a love of books. The first program, PAWS to Read, gives children the opportunity to build confidence in their reading ability by reading aloud to a certified therapist. The second program, Reading Pals, pairs teens and younger children together. Teens read storybooks aloud to one or two younger children at a time. Children may wish to draw or write about a story they like. Listening to stories, talking about stories and reading aloud are great ways to improve literacy skills while having a good time. For information, call the youth librarian at 352-628-5626. Citrus County Parks & Recreation is offering baton classes at the Citrus Springs Community Center. Classes are open to all girls and boys ages 4 to college age. No experience is necessary. For information, call Diane Sorvillo at 352-5276540. All classes are taught by Sorvillo, a former Majorette Queen of America and twotime national champion. Classes and times are: 4:45 to 5:30 p.m. New Beginners (ages 4 to 7). 5:30 to 6:15 Competitive team class. 6:15 to 7 p.m. Solo competitive class. 7 to 7:45 p.m. New Beginners (ages 8 and older). Class fees are $32 per month, or two different classes for $45. Free tutoring is available from state-approved providers to students who scored a Level 1 or Level 2 on the Reading or Math FCAT last spring at all Citrus County Elementary Schools and the Renaissance Center (Title I schools). Enrollment forms will be mailed to all qualifying families. Tutoring is available after school, at day care sites or community centers, in home or online. Spaces are limited, so if requests for free tutoring exceed the amount of funding available, the school district will prioritize services. Neither the Florida Department of Education nor the school district promotes or endorses any particular Supplemental Educational Services provider. For information, call Maribeth Smith at 352-7261931, ext. 2321. Miscellaneous The Citrus County YMCA is currently seeking to connect community volunteers through their Y Community Champions program. The Y Community Champions program embraces volunteers to help in a variety of areas with the YMCA organization. The benefits of volunteering include personal development, health and wellness, building relationships and having a community connection. Volunteers are currently needed in the areas of coaching, program assistants, special events and office administration. All volunteers must undergo a background screening. To volunteer at the YMCA, call 352-637-0132, or stop by the office at 3909 N. Lecanto Highway in Beverly Hills. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County are now registering children for the beforeand afterschool programs at each club. Clubs open as early as 6 a.m. for before-school programming, with children remaining until the school bus transports them to their respective schools. Buses also transport children in the afternoon when school is out to the clubs for the afterschool program, with parents picking up children by 6 p.m. To register a child or to learn more about the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County programs, call the Central Ridge Boys & Girls Club at 352-270-8841, the Robert Halleen Boys & Girls Club at 352-795-8624, or the Evelyn Waters Boys & Girls Clubs at 352-341-2507, or the administrative office at 352-621-9225. Hernando Elementary School is looking for donations of working Kindles Nooks, iPod Touches, iPads, Internet tablets, digital cameras and digital recording devices to be used by students in the classroom. If you have any used but working electronic devices from the list above or would like to donate a new electronic device, contact Heather Bone or Laura Manos at 352-726-1833 Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. To contact someone outside of these hours, call Heather Bone at 352-4624768. Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County Central Ridge and Robert Halleen clubs seek mentors to work with their members. The two clubs have received federal grants through Boys & Girls Clubs of America, allowing mentors to come into the clubs to serve as tutors and special friends of members. All mentors will undergo complete background security checks with fingerprinting. Cost of background checks will be covered in most cases through grant funding by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County. Mentors may be assigned more than one child. A training session will be done prior to mentoring. All mentoring will take place at the club sites. Those who are interested, may call Amy Stonestreet at 352-270-8841 or Lane Vick at 352-621-9225. Take Stock in Children is a mentoring program that offers a college scholarship and the promise of hope to deserving youths in Citrus County. Take Stock scholars join the program in the sixth, seventh or eighth grades and are assigned a mentor who meets with their student once a week, during regular school hours, and helps the student achieve their goal of a graduating from high school and going to college. The mentor commitment involves working with scholars each week during regular school hours, believing in the student, and helping the student believe in themselves. The program is actively seeking male and female role models to help support active student scholars, as well as new students who will soon be entering the program. Call Pat Lancaster, program coordinator, at 352-4222348 or 352-344-0855 for information and to sign up for the next mentor training.
