Editors note: In an economic climate where jobs are at a premium, the Chronicle is publishing an occasional series, Citrus County Works, profiling local people and the jobs they perform. Today Librarian Susan Mutschler. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerLibrarians read books. Rylee Kirkpatrick, 8.Librarians read stories and sing songs. Rory Lewis, 4.What do I think librarians do? Among other things, librarians assist people in finding books, do administrative things, check books in and out, advise patrons, keep a nice, safe, comfortable place for people to enjoy the library. Theyre friendly and nice and keep the library in order so you can find your books. Janice Clapp, Homosassa winter resident. HOMOSASSA If you think librarians just sit at a desk reading encyclopedias, direct people to the biography section and shush people making too much noise, then you dont know librarians. Were so much more, said Susan Mutschler, public services manager for the Citrus County Library System. Mutschler works at both the Homosassa Public Library and the Coastal Region Library in Crystal River. Today librarians are educators, marketers, we bring cultural activities to the community, Mutschler said. I do planning and budgeting, grant writing, public speaking and fundraising. Were expected to know everything and be in the know constantly, especially when it comes to technology. She said much of knowing everything is knowing where to find answers to peoples questions. From students needing help finding information for term papers or science projects to people wanting to find out how to set up a new business or research a patent, librarians know where to go. Theres so much information out there that librarians know how to hone in on, she said. Theres something called the invisible or deep web specialty search techniques that they teach you when you go to library school. To be a librarian, a person needs a masters degree. And librarians always quote their sources when they give an answer. We had a call from a man who asked what a cuckold was, she said. He said, My wife just called me a cuckold and I want to know what that means. We looked it up and read him the definition According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a cuckold is a man whose wife is unfaithful. You could hear a pin drop, she said. Sometimes were not always the bearer of good news.

Canines, felines the stars at event E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerINVERNESS It was a paw-fect day for four-legged best friends Saturday. They appeared to be smiling as they strutted their clean coats up and down the aisles of the Citrus County Auditorium at the second annual Best Friend Fest. Pet owners and animal lovers alike appeared for the pet adoption extravaganza. We want to promote all of the organizations involved here, said Kelly Gill, volunteer outreach coordinator. It is not just about our shelter. A lot of the rescue groups in the community have pets for adoption too. The fair-like event also included food vendors, face painting, a silent auction and a bloodmobile to benefit Animal Services Special Needs Fund, which pays for animal medical care. People who donated pet food for needy owners were entered into a drawing for a prize. We are also looking for foster homes for a lot of animals, Gill said. We need people who are willing to open up their homes for needy animals while they wait for their forever home. Twenty-eight organizations including groomers, trainers, veterinarians, rescue groups, photographers and the county shelter promoted adoption and care for the furry friends at the event, which was sponsored by Citrus County Animal Services and the Citrus County Chronicle Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-5635660, ext. 1334, or eworthington @chronicleonline.com.

Fast friends made at adoption expo N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writer INVERNESS A fter being renters for nearly four years, theres nothing like having your own home. Thats what the members of American Legion Post 77 in Inverness celebrated Saturday at the dedication of their permanent meeting place, the former Inverness Highlands Civic Association building on Little Al Point in the Inverness Highlands. We had our eye on this to purchase and were blessed when they gave it to us as a gift back in November, said Norm Brumett, Post 77 commander. The post had been renting the facility for the previous four years. Prior to that, they met at the Key Training Center building in Inverness. As the dedication ceremony began, Lee Cloward, Highlands Civic Association president, passed the deed to Brumett, saying, The Highlands civic organization began in 1976 ... and when we built this building, it was just a barn structure. What you see here is the evolution of what we started with. The Legion now has taken the building and they have improved it further with the hope of it being a centerpiece for the entire community. American Legion Post 77 has 329 members, and Brumett said they are always looking for more, especially younger members, which include both male and female veterans. Were in the process of starting a Sons of the American Legion squadron, he said, for sons of American Legion members. He added that the post is thrilled to be the recipients of both the civic associations buildingand the property, as well. Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted said he was honored to represent the city at the dedication and commended the post for its participation in city events, especially the annual Flag Day ceremony.

John Kerry, D-Mass., as the 68th U.S. Secretary of State. He took office on Feb. 1. GOP Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas and James Inhofe of Oklahoma cast the negative votes. A yes vote was to confirm Kerry. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, Yes. Debt-Limit Waiver: Senators voted, 64-34, to waive the statutory debt limit until May 19, allowing the Treasury to borrow above the current $16.4 trillion limit until then. A yes vote was to send President Obama a bill that also denies pay to lawmakers if they fail to pass a fiscal 2014 budget by April 15. (HR 325) Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Egypt Aid Cutoff: Voting 79-19, senators tabled a bid to end F-16 aircraft deliveries and other U.S. military aid to Egypt and its shaky Muslim Brotherhood-led government. A yes vote was to kill the amendment to HR 325 (above) on grounds it would upend U.S.-Egypt relations, hurt Israel and worsen chaos in the Middle East. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Dollar-for-Dollar Debt Hike: Voting 54-44, senators tabled (killed) an amendment to require one dollar in future spending cuts for every dollar increase in the national-debt limit. That limit deals with the past as it applies to money already appropriated by Congress. A yes vote was to kill the amendment to HR 325. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Hurricane Sandy Aid: Voting 62-36, senators sent President Obama a bill to appropriate $50.5 billion in disaster aid, most of which would provide immediate and long-term help for areas of Connecticut, New Jersey and New York struck three months ago by Hurricane Sandy. This is emergency aid and thus deficit spending. A yes vote was to pass HR 152. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Disaster-Aid Offset: Senators rejected, 35-62, an amendment to pay the $50.5 billion cost of HR 152 (above) by cutting the same amount from discretionary spending programs both military and non-military over the next nine years. A yes vote was to cut non-entitlement spending to keep Hurricane Sandy aid from adding to the national debt. Nelson, No; Rubio, Yes.

The decision is long overdue; they're as capable of being warriors as men. 13 percent (55 votes) Call me a sexist, but I feel direct combat should be left to men. 39 percent (169 votes) It's a move for equality, but my objection is based on fear for women soldiers taken as prisoners of war. 20 percent (87 votes) Our military should utilize every willing and able soldier at its disposal; so, yes, women should be in combat roles. 28 percent (118 votes) Total votes: 429.

Mutschler, 45, has worked at a library ever since she was 15 and answered a want ad at her local public library in New Jersey. Although at first they said she was too young, she was persistent, insisting that working in a library was her dream job. Persistence paid off and she worked at the library all through high school, gluing pockets onto books, stamping and filing library cards and shelving books. Later, she worked in college libraries, public school libraries and five public libraries. Public libraries are the most challenging and the most rewarding, she said. Every day is different. She added that libraries have changed drastically. Theyre no longer simply places to read and check out books, but theyre social and cultural community centers and librarians run the show. Pre-GED and citizenship classes, computer classes, youth programs, lectures and craft demonstrations as Mutschler said, This is not your grandmothers library anymore.

Duke Energy to close two of NCs oldest power plants Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Duke Energy is closing some of the oldest power plants in North Carolina. The Charlotte Observerreported the Riverbend plant west of Charlotte and Buck plant in Rowan County will close in April. The plants opened in the 1920s and were some of the first to bring electricity to the state. Both plants had been set to be shut down in 2015, but Duke Energy officials said access to newer Progress Energy plants after the utilities merged and a shift to gas power plants because of falling natural gas prices led to the earlier closings. Environmentalists are happy to see the coal plants close, but said they will monitor what the company does with the leftover coal ash to make sure it doesnt seep into drinking water. Were glad to see that the air in this community will be cleaner after April. Well also try to make sure Duke properly retires its ash ponds, which are seepable into our drinking water. We dont see this as an end to our mission by any means, said Sara Behnke, founder of We Love Mountain Island Lake, a community group created last spring in response to the Riverbend plant. The closing of the two plants goes along with Duke Energys plans to shut down more than 3,800 megawatts of older coaland oil-fired generation by the end of 2013. The utility has a longterm plan to retire older, less efficient plants that make up to 6,800 megawatts of electricity. Buck was Duke Energys first large-scale plant. It began operating in 1926. Its first two units retired in 1979, and two more units shut down in 2011. Units 5 and 6 will retire in April. Three gas units were shut down last October. Riverbend was opened in 1929. Three units were shut down in the 1970s, and the remaining four units will be retired in April. Four smaller gas-fired units retired last October. These stations played pivotal roles in the 1920s and 1930s in helping to electrify the industries and homes of the Carolinas, and we honor all those employees who contributed their time and talents over the years to ensure safe, reliable operations, Keith Trent, chief operating officer of Duke Energys regulated utilities, said in a statement. The utility said it would try to find new positions within the company for the 65 people who work at the plants that will be shut down. Feds dont like SC nuke plants fire system delays Associated PressSENECA, S.C. Federal nuclear regulators say Duke Energy could face civil penalties for failing to upgrade its methods on how to fight a fire at the Oconee Nuclear Station. The Greenville News reported federal officials have allowed the nuclear power plant to operate for several years under temporary practices to fight blazes. In exchange, Duke Energy agreed to create a pilot program to change how the countrys nuclear reactors protect against fire. Duke Energy told the Nuclear Regulatory Commission it underestimated the complexity of the project. But the commission refused the utilitys request for more time. Duke Energy will request a hearing to further explain the situation. Federal officials said it will likely happen in the next month.

Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan The Afghan peace effort is floundering, fraught with mistrust and confusion among key players even though the hard-line Taliban militants show signs of softening and their reclusive, one-eyed leader made a surprise offer to share power in a post-war Afghanistan. The U.S. and its allies hope the peace process, which began nearly two years ago, will gain traction before most international forces withdraw from the country in fewer than 23 months. But although the Taliban appear more ready to talk than ever before, peace talks remain elusive because of infighting among a rising number of interlocutors all trying to get some kind of negotiations started. Members of the Taliban are in contact with representatives from 30 to 40 different countries, according to senior U.S., Afghan and other officials The Associated Press interviewed in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Moreover, the relationship among the key players the U.S., Afghanistan and Pakistan is marked by distrust that keeps tugging momentum away from the peace process. Many of the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the sensitive contacts with the Taliban. Finding a path to the negotiating table will be a topic when Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistan President Asif Zardari hold a series of meetings beginning Monday with British Prime Minister David Cameron. The meetings in London come amid fresh tensions between Kabul and its western allies. Karzai recently warned the West not to use peace talks as a lever against his government. As well, both Kabul and Washington are frustrated that Pakistan is not monitoring the whereabouts and activities of Taliban prisoners it released in recent months. Miffed by the criticism, Pakistan says it freed the prisoners at the request of the Afghan government and doesnt have the resources to keep tabs on them. No one in either Pakistan or Afghanistan seems to know where the dozens of released prisoners have gone. Last week, the Taliban issued a statement by freed former Taliban Justice Minister Mullah Nooruddin Turabi on behalf of all the prisoners an indication that at least some might have rejoined the ranks of the insurgency. There were no preconditions to their release and we are getting criticism from our own people inside Afghanistan about that and it is valid criticism, said Ismail Qasemyar, a senior member of the Afghan High Peace Council. The peace council, which Karzai set up to carry out peace negotiations, handed Pakistan the list of prisoners, including Turabi, that it wanted freed. They have also asked for the release of the Talibans former second in command, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar. N EDRA P ICKLER Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama said Sunday that gays should be allowed in the Boy Scouts and women should be allowed in military combat roles, weighing in on two storied American institutions facing proposals to end long-held exclusions. The presidents comments in a pre-Super Bowl interview on CBS come ahead of this weeks meeting of the Boy Scouts national executive board. A proposal to open up the Scouts membership to gays is expected to be discussed and possibly voted on at the gathering in Texas. The Boy Scouts emphatically reaffirmed the nogays policy just seven months ago, but announced last week they were considering changing the stance. Instead of mandatory exclusion of gays, the different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units would be able to decide for themselves how to address the issue either maintaining the exclusion or opening up their membership. The White House said in a statement last August that Obama opposed the gay ban. Obama, like presidents for the last century, serves as honorary president of the group. The presidents comment Sunday was his first since the group announced it was considering a policy change. My attitude is that gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does in every institution and walk of life, Obama said. The Scouts are a great institution that are promoting young people and exposing them to opportunities and leadership that will serve people for the rest of their lives. And I think nobody should be barred from that. Obama also had previously issued a statement supporting the Pentagons decision last month to open up front-line combat jobs to women, but the interview with CBS Scott Pelley included his first publicly spoken comments on the matter since the announcement. He said women are already serving in combat as a practical matter. When theyre in theater in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, they are vulnerable, he said. They are wounded, and theyve been killed. And they have carried out their jobs with extraordinary patriotism and distinction. The policy change overturns a 1994 rule prohibiting women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units, and is expected to open up more than 230,000 combat positions that have been off limits to women. Obama said he meets extraordinary women in uniform who can do everything that a man can and more. He gave the example of one of his military aides, who he estimated is only about 5 feet tall and 100 pounds. You put a 50-pound pack on her, and she can do things that you or me would keel over doing. And so the truth is that women are serving. They are taking great risks. What we should not do is somehow prevent them from advancing in an institution that we all revere. On the economy, Obama said although more revenue has to be raised to reduce the deficit, it can be done without raising income tax rates again. He said the answer is smart spending cuts, reducing waste in the health care system and closing loopholes and deductions like offshore tax havens that benefit a few high income earners but not most Americans. Theres no doubt we need additional revenue coupled with smart spending reductions in order to bring down our deficit, he said. We can do it in a gradual way so it doesnt have a huge impact. Coming before the Super Bowl, Obama had to expect hed be asked about his recent comment that if he had a son, he would have to think long and hard about letting him play football because of safety concerns. Obama said he feel differently about the NFL, where the players are well-compensated adults who know the risks, but the threat of concussions has to give parents pause about letting youth and children play. I want to make sure we are doing everything we can to make the sport safer, and that means the games probably going to evolve a little bit, Obama said. For those of us who like to see a big hit and enjoy the rock em, sock em elements of the game, were probably going to be occasionally frustrated. But I do think we want to make sure that after people have played the game, that theyre going to be OK, he said. The Obamas were hosting their own Super Bowl party for friends and family at the White House. In honor of the two teams, the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, they were serving Chesapeake crabcakes and San Francisco cioppino stew with sourdough toast. Also on the menu are Clipper City and Anchor Steam beers from the competing cities.

Lurking threat in Sandy-hit homes: Mold Associated PressNEW YORK Esther Tauscher stood outside her Staten Island home, leafing through boxes of family photos that had been steeped in storm water. She paused to point out life events her honeymoon, holding her baby boy in a hospital bed. The photos are just about all she has left. Behind her, the home where she and her family lived for 14 years was being dismantled by a masked volunteer crew that tossed out her possessions and ripped out floorboards and walls. It was Tauschers only option. Her house and nearly everything in it was consumed by mold. If the water didnt get it, the mold got it, she said. Three months after Superstorm Sandy, mold lurks in once-waterlogged buildings, hiding below subflooring, under foundations, and in door and window frames. Sometimes it mottles walls in plain sight. And it can make dwellers sick, another blow to people still recovering from the October storm that sent the Atlantic surging into homes in New Jersey and New York. Mold is flourishing in homes that never completely dried out, where the owners may have waited to make repairs or could not access the house for weeks because of safety concerns. Other flooded homes remain vacant and unheated. But even some who quickly chucked saturated belongings, ripped out soggy wallboards and carpets and scrubbed walls with cleaners and bleach are still finding mold, because the home didnt fully dry, treatment did not work or unscrupulous contractors didnt actually kill it. Mold needs two things. It needs food and it needs moisture, said Paul Lioy, a professor of environmental medicine at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, N.J. So if you have places that arent completely dried out, youre going to have conditions that are ripe for mold growth. Mold can spur coughing, wheezing and other reactions in people who are allergic or sensitive to it or have asthma, and can cause infections in people with chronic lung conditions. In 2004, the Institute of Medicine found sufficient evidence of a link between damp, moldy indoor environments and upper respiratory tract symptoms, coughing and wheezing in healthy people, and asthma symptoms in asthmatics. If mold is treated safely, there should be few longterm health effects, said Dr. Kevin ChathamStephens, a pediatrician and environmental health fellow at Mount Sinai Medical Center. But doing it yourself could make things worse. Chatham-Stephens said bleach and other chemicals used to clean mold can also cause respiratory irritation. Mold remediation can cost as much as $15,000 and require people to leave their homes for days. It is not directly covered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency or New York Citys Rapid Repair program, which provides emergency repairs to residents affected by the storm. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Thursday announced a $15 million public-private partnership to remove mold in about 2,000 city homes. The money was raised privately, and the program will be run by a community development nonprofit. It will find homeowners through referrals, with the neediest families receiving priority. The city is also holding training sessions on how to deal with mold in the home. The program was launched by the Mayors Fund to Advance New York City, the Red Cross and the Robin Hood Foundation. Joseph McKellar, executive director of Queens Congregations United for Action, said that the citys program is a good first step, but that 2,000 homes is really only a start. McKellar and other labor, faith and community leaders formed Back Home, Back to Work, an organization that wants to use union members to clean out mold-infested homes in New York. The group is calling for part of the $50.5 billion emergency aid package passed by Congress to be used for mold remediation. Sen. Charles Schumer said he would like to see federal money allocated to fight mold. New Jersey is looking at opportunities for a similar program, said Donna Leusner, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Department of Health. The state is waiting to see if grants from the aid package can be used to help residents fight mold. The Robin Hood Foundation also made grants to programs in New Jersey that provide free mold remediation to Sandy victims. Lioy worries the mold problem will only get worse in the spring and summer, when consistently warm temperatures will allow mold to flourish. Even warm days like Wednesday and Thursday, when temperatures reached into the 50s and 60s, can accelerate mold growth. Richard Schielke scrubbed the salt and mud off his hardwood floors after the storm but discovered weeks later that mold lurked under the floor. He hired a crew from Flag Enterprises, a Lindenhurst, N.Y., restoration services company. Workers scoured his moldy floor and walls and set up large air filters that hummed throughout his home. There was no playbook saying, If this happens, this is what you should do, Schielke, of Massapequa, N.Y., said. Alyssa Durnien, of Keansburg, N.J., came back to her damaged house about 15 days after the storm and sprayed a mildew product on the wood and underbelly of her home, which had mold damage. Months later, the mold is back. Durnien set up dehumidifiers throughout the house and plans to hire a professional. I can tell you, she said, theres still mold there. Associated PressWhen red knots descend on the beaches of Delaware Bay this spring famished from their marathon flight toward the Canadian Arctic from the tip of South America, the rosy-breasted shorebirds may find slim pickings instead of the feast of horseshoe crab eggs they count on to fuel the rest of their migration. Superstorm Sandy scrubbed away almost all the sand the crabs need to spawn upon. Restoring it in time is a top priority of wildlife groups beginning to repair Sandys massive damage to dunes, beaches and salt marshes along the Eastern Seaboard that support a diverse population of birds, fish, marine organisms and other wildlife. A recent report by the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation predicts that the storm which across the region washed away sand and vegetation that many species spawn in or call home, or polluted habitats with oil, sewage and other contaminants is almost certain to have lasting effects on the recovery of the red knot. The Delaware Bay could be called the Serengeti of the mid-Atlantic for the staggering numbers of birds there, said Eric Stiles, executive director of New Jersey Audubon. In addition to providing a wintering area for waterfowl that breed in the Great Plains of the United States and Canada, the estuary also provides a winter range for large numbers of raptors, including bald eagles. When I visited as a kid in the s, the beaches were green with horseshoe crab eggs, Stiles said. When the birds took to flight, it looked like the whole beach was rising up en masse. Just a beautiful spectacle. But at a popular New Jersey Audubon winter workshop on raptors of the bay, a time when participants usually see dozens of eagles and other birds of prey, this year they only saw one eagle, one northern harrier, and one red-tailed hawk in the day outing, Stiles said. The prey base has disappeared. The rodents the raptors feed on will rebound quickly. But eelgrass beds that provide the primary food source for Atlantic brant and other waterfowl, as well as spawning areas for fish, will need restoration work where Sandy has buried the eelgrass under a foot of sand and sediment. Other species identified in the Manomet Center report as priority candidates for habitat restoration include the roseate tern, piping plover, tricolored heron and least bittern. It found more than 70 sites from Massachusetts to Virginia that need restoration work, including beach replenishment, rebuilding of nesting islands and water control structures in managed wetlands. Beach replenishment involves replacing land lost to storm erosion with sand pumped from offshore. The projects, with an estimated price tag of $48.7 million, would not only repair late Octobers damage from Sandy, but also help coastal areas withstand major storms in the future. Some of the funding will come from the $50.5 billion emergency relief package signed by President Barack Obama on Tuesday; other money will come from state budgets or nonprofit organizations. The report by the Manomet Center, based in Plymouth, Mass., recommends a $10 million project by the Army Corps of Engineers and other partners to repair the beaches of Delaware Bay, where the red knots population has dropped from about 100,000 in the 1980s to about 30,000 now because of overharvesting of horseshoe crabs for fertilizer and fishing bait. These birds fly nonstop for thousands of miles from the tip of South America, Stiles said. They land on Delaware Bay exhausted and emaciated, and then they double their body weight in 7 to 10 days foraging on horseshoe crab eggs before flying nonstop to the Arctic. But the storms sculpting work also created new habitat for species such as the threatened piping plover, a compact, pale shorebird with coloring that makes it all but vanish against the open sand flats where it nests. The American Littoral Societys postSandy surveys found 67 percent of MidAtlantic beach areas had moderate to high damage to bird and marine life habitats, including vital marshes. These marshes are protein factories, providing rodents, crabs and other species in the food chain, said Tim Dillingham, the societys executive director. The storm also washed raw sewage, oil and other pollutants into marshes, bays and estuaries, but the long-term impact isnt yet known, Dillingham said. Scott Johnston, of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services division of migratory birds, said that damage occurred from North Carolina to Cape Cod, but that the bulk of it was in New Jersey, Delaware Bay and Long Island Sound. As the rebuilding begins, he said, the focus should be to aim for the natural resiliency provided by natural dune systems and marshes. Dillingham and other biologists said it would be more beneficial to create natural dune systems than to build bulkheads and seawalls to protect against future storm surges. An extensive dune system has the effect of protecting the homes and businesses while providing real and meaningful habitat, Dillingham said. If the taxpayers are paying for this, they deserve more than a massive Berlin Wall. A8 M ONDAY, F EBRUARY4, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE N ATION Get Published Win Prizes Receive Awards!

Unions made life better for people This letter is a reply to a letter written by Michael Pitts titled Unions hurt America. Mr. Pitts said the unions are a protection and extortion racket. He gives no explanation or details of how this is so. He goes on to say unions have become the ruination of America within the work-and-wage system. He then talks about entitlements. Mr. Pitts being a union employee never had to apply for entitlements, because he enjoyed union wages and benefits, especially as a senior shop steward. One of the largest corporations in the world, which is non-union and has three locations in Citrus County, hires their employees part-time and below poverty level wages. This is where entitlements come in. Because these employees are non-union and working below poverty level wages, many of them can receive food stamps, lowincome housing and Medicaid. I am sure as a union member and senior shop steward, Mr. Pitts never had to worry about those entitlements. While we are on entitlements, lets talk about some large entitlements. Exxon Mobile made $19 billion in 2009, paid no federal tax and received $156 million in rebate from IRS. Bank of America received $1.9 billion from the IRS last year, although it made $4.4 billion in profits and received a bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department of nearly $1 trillion. There are many more on that list who receive large entitlements. Now, I want to list briefly a few things unions have done for America. Unions gave us weekends off; this was in the fair labor standards in 1937 after massive strikes so a worker would have some leisure time. Unions gave workers fair wages and income equality. When the worker gets a low wage, he or she is dependent on the taxpayers for entitlements such as food stamps, Medicaid and in some cases lowincome housing. Unions also were a big help in ending child labor in the early 19th century and lets not forget the unions won widespread employer-based health coverage. Chuck Weiler Crystal River Serve constituents, not own interests In a recent Sound Off someone was concerned U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent did not vote for the Sandy Storm aid. I decided to check and see what our Florida senators did. As expected Sen. Nelson voted for the bill while Sen. Rubio voted against it. It is interesting this was not an issue when the federal government was rebuilding a city below sea level, towns destroyed by tornados, spent millions of dollars fighting forest fires or the fortunes Florida received for its many hurricanes including Andrew. These two Florida congressmen are members of the hijacked Tea Party. That is the party that started out seeking efficient and honest government only to be taken over by radicals (who) in essence believe in no government unless it benefits the special interests that supports their agenda. Sen. Rubio has voted no on just about everything regardless of a legitimate need or not. Rep. Nugents voting record indicates his brain was replaced by a robot that only responds to his backers demands. One can only wonder how the northeast Congress members will respond when Florida comes knocking for help after the next hurricane. Sadly, I doubt either of these bought and paid for politicians will even try to help their state unless they are directed to do so by their handlers. This country is already too divided. Special interests have turned voters into hate groups that refuse to see or attempt to see both sides of an issue. Now, we have our congressional representatives creating another issue which is not based on party line but rather a regional challenge. Rubio and Nugent have sworn oaths to a millionaire and a fringe political group, which they clearly prize over the oath to our Constitution. It is time for the voters to elect people (who) represent all of the citizens of this country and take direction from our constitution and its citizens not millionaires, special interests or extremist organizations. Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills Dont use reservesJust what is going on? When the problem with Duke Energy was realized, the county said they were going to pursue a hiring freeze. In the past three weeks, five I repeat five jobs have been posted on its website. Today, I read the freeze on vehicles has melted and now Geoff Greene has hired an expert to the tune of $36,000 so far. If he and his staff dont have the expertise to do the job, maybe it should be outsourced. Lastly, use of reserves to cover your expenses is not a balanced budget. Stop raiding the reserves, do your job within the monetary means you have and serve the people, not your egos.No Parkway 2 I read the article on Stay the course on Keep working on Suncoast Parkway 2. I wanted to say I agree its a worthwhile project. I do hope, however, they dont plan on extending the walking/biking trail. Every time I go to Tampa on that road, I notice theres literally nobody between here and Spring Hill using the trail, which makes me think they could drive the cost of the project down if indeed they are considering extending that. We dont need it up here.Epidemic problemIve noticed lately the litter problem in Citrus County seems to be becoming epidemic. Why is it we never see anybodys name in the paper for being fined for littering? Are we catching any of these people? It seems like theres a bunch of new signs $500 for littering and so on, but nobodys paying attention to them, obviously.Free books This is for the person who wrote in to the Sound Off about getting books at yard sales for a decent price. If youd like some books and want to take a look at them, please give me a call at 352-3445675. I have several in my garage and they wont cost you that much. As a matter of fact, I can give them to you for free if youre interested. So please give me a call. Dont spend them at yard sales. Whats in a name? This is to inform tourists and anyone else who might not know, in spite of the Chronicles insistence on calling the hippopotamus at the Homosassa attraction Lu, its true name is Lucifer, not Lu. Editors note: Yes, Lus given name is Lucifer; however, park employees prefer the more affectionate Lu for their much-celebrated resident. Respect the law I saw where the guy wrote a letter to the editor on the airboat muffler laws. Not only the muffler laws, but what about when a dozen of them go by a guy trying to fish within 50 feet, 25 feet, full blast, and wont even look at you because theyre afraid you might give the one-finger hello or a shrug or whats up? How about some respect out there? You guys might not be so hated if you were a little more respectful around people. Call for gridlock I just read in the paper Jan. 26 about the traffic light needed on (State Road) 44 and Meadowcrest Boulevard. My thought is to put up four stop signs in each direction, two warning the traffic theyre coming on to stop signs, to stop ahead. And four in each direction, thats eight total. And the other direction you have one thats been up there for a while. Then you can have the cars stop in 60 to 90 days worth and then take the two stop signs down.

Well, for one thing, let the readers know and understand Floridas permit is a concealed weapons permit. Its not a concealed gun permit. What it means is, you can carry any weapon as long as it is concealed on your person. It can be a gun, a knife, a billy, a blackjack or any other item considered a weapon under Floridas statutes. So please clarify it to your readers. Its not a gun permit, as some of your people have written in the newspaper over the last week.Found purse Sound Off is such a good way to say thank you when an unknown person has helped someone else with a good and honest act. Id like to thank the individual who found my little change purse in the parking lot of Walgreens on Forest Ridge Drive. It was a very small zipped-up purse that had my drivers license and other valuables in it. I evidently dropped it while getting into the car. The manager at Walgreens called me and I retrieved it right away, giving the manager a big hug and thank you. But I didnt know who the honest person was who turned it in. This happened a month or so ago, but its never too late to say thank you. Unions, sheeple The letter by Michael Pitts in todays Chronicle (Jan. 28) really hits the nail on the head. Hes responding to a letter from Mr. Dostal and Mr. Cooper. Mr. Pitts is absolutely correct in how the unions have destroyed this country and the people who follow the union dogma are nothing more than sheeple.Some nerveWhere does the Southwest Water Management have the audacity to tell us to conserve water when they turned around and gave a whole bunch of water away to be bottled and sold?

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2013 Thank you for caring To the citizens of Citrus County, Here it is January, and I look back on the last two months and realize again how much the people of this county care about children. More than 1,900 children and teens received blankets or jackets or school supplies and clothing and books and some toys to make their lives much better. Caseworkers expressed their thanks for your seeing to it that their charges had the things they needed. Children in foster care and children in shelters and children living with grandparents were all given gifts. Parents expressed their thanks in letters about the circumstances of this year that left the family struggling. Teachers tell me they see the children return to school excited to have a new outfit and toys; now certain Santa is real. Those teachers express relief to know the children now have a warm coat on cold days and blankets to keep away the cold of poorly heated homes. It is with a grateful heart I thank all of you individual citizens; the Marines from Toys for Tots; the large corporate sponsors like Progress Energy; and small businesses with only a few employees; churches, homeowners associations, civic clubs and business associations. I also thank the many workers who wrapped, sorted and delivered the gifts. It is a team effort we accomplish this project together Ginger West Family Resource Center Hernando T he usual soul searching that comes with an election loss has the Republican Party contemplating, yet again, how to reach out to minorities. Heres a suggestion: Stop with the insults that form a structural part of the Statement of Faith for todays GOP A recent Washington Postpoll asked Republicans why African-Americans reliably vote Democratic. Three in five said the reason is welfare and the desire to get something for nothing. Lump this with Mitt Romneys insulting comments on the percent who will never take personal responsibility and care for their own lives and those minorities who want free gifts from government, and you have a problem. Indeed, listen any day to the likes of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh and the narrative is minorities vote Democratic because they are lazy and reliant on government. This smacks of bigotry. The good news for Republicans is the staggering loss among minorities in 2012 can be easily fixed, so long as Republicans stop the rhetorical march toward making the national party not unlike the Mississippi Republican party. And for inspiration, the Republicans need look no further than a figure they pretty much place in a corner with a dunce hat these days: George W. Bush. Though most would agree the Bush presidency was mediocre, there is no denying he reached out to minorities, in particular Latinos. He got more than 40 percent of the Latino vote in 2004. At this point, getting 40 percent of the Latino vote is pretty much all Republicans need to become a viable national party again. And it is not difficult to do. Though many Latinos favor government action on issues such as health care, education, a living wage and retirement security (which lead them to Democrats), Latinos are usually culturally conservative. Most are Roman Catholic and more conservative than their Anglo American Catholic brethren on social issues. And growing numbers of Latinos in particular Puerto Ricans are now Pentecostal. Latinos are by and large the classic immigrants who should make us all proud to be Americans: They arrive here to work hard, play by the rules and become good Americans. That is what my family did in 1960, when they arrived as Cuban exiles fleeing Castros regime. The story of the Mexican immigrant looking for economic opportunity, the Venezuelan immigrant fleeing the shackles of Hugo Chavez or the Cuban exile arriving on a raft is no less American. Bush appealed to Latinos on three fronts. First, he appealed to their sense of compassion and community by supporting sensible immigration reform and talking about armies of compassion through his charitable choice programs. Second, he was conservative on social issues. Third, and most important and missing from todays Republican vision, he respected Latinos not as some predictable voting bloc, but as Americans whose stories are American stories. By giving in to those who peddle ridiculous fantasies about Latino immigrants jumping the border and buying a Rolls Royce and mansion in the Hamptons on food stamps and welfare, Republicans alienate a potential constituency. And not only do they alienate Latinos, they insult them. One of the many reasons, for example, African-Americans were fired up and ready to go on Election Day was because of the numerous, almost humiliating, insults Republicans aimed at Barack Obama. Good faith debate and dialogue degenerated into insults about the president wanting to destroy and enslave our country, shred the Bill of Rights and crush our liberties. When the sophomoric Congressman Joseph Wilson yelled you lie! to the president during the State of the Union, when mainstream Republicans entertained the idea Obama is an illegal alien from Kenya, when the first lady is called a racist and when racial ambulance chasers like Donald Trump are given comfort in todays GOP Republicans inflame black voters. Soon, non-racial issues such as health care reform (which Limbaugh called reparations for African-Americans) became colored in race. Indeed, many Republicans have refused to acknowledge what Obama means not only to African-Americans, but to all Americans. Like his politics or not, there is no denying the emotional power of someone who marched in Selma voting for him, or a young AfricanAmerican whose greatgrandparents were slaves voting for him. For many AfricanAmericans, Election Day 2008 was a homecoming. Refusal to recognize this has nothing to do with good-faith disagreements over tax or health care policy. Its blind stubbornness. There is no mandate to support or even like Obama, but Republicans should at least acknowledge what he means to many Americans. Therefore, Republicans do not have too long of a journey to becoming viable again. However, to do this, they must, first and foremost, stop with the insults.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARD Gerry Mulligan .................................... publisherMike Arnold .............................................. editor Charlie Brennan .......................... editor at largeCurt Ebitz .................................. citizen member Mac Harris ................................ citizen member Rebecca Martin .......................... guest member Brad Bautista .................................... copy chief STUDENTS FIRST School board facing tough fiscal choices F orce school children to walk up to two miles to school or cut educational programs. Those are just two of the predicaments facing Citrus County School Board members as they plan for the 2013-14 budget. The school board is facing a $3.7 million deficit, based on a drop in student enrollment, impacts of the reduced Progress Energy Florida tax payment and an expected increase in property insurance. Board members expect to make up $1.7 million of the deficit from the districts reserve funds. They hope to make up the rest by implementing cuts that have the least impact on students. Dipping into reserves is not a favorable, nor a sustainable solution. Cutting programs, while an easy way out, is abhorrent and goes against the entire philosophy of educating our young. Many students in our school system do not have the advantages students from wealthy or middle-class families do. Students whose parents are professionals such as doctors, lawyers, administrators, teachers or business owners receive exposure to the myriad professional possibilities available to them. Programs such as the Marine Science Station, Business Academy, International Baccalaureate, Art Academy and Health Academy provide exposure to students who might not otherwise explore these opportunities. The school board has rejected cutting programs like the Marine Science Station in the past and we would encourage them to do so in the future. We would much rather have students walking a mile or two to school than be told you cannot be a marine biologist. Programs such as these and other extracurricular activities like sports are oftentimes the only thing keeping students engaged and attending schools. They open avenues to the underprivileged and allow others to opportunities to realize their dreams. We urge school board members to maintain their focus on cuts with the least impact on students. THE ISSUE: School board looks to cut $2 million from 2013-14 budget.OUR OPINION: Look at cuts with minimal student impact.

C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Luis Viera FLORIDA VOICES GOP, stop insulting minorities Credit or cashThis is in response to the business owners question about paying exorbitant charges for taking credit cards. Well, theyve been taking credit cards and debit cards for years and Im sure its built into the cost of doing business somewhere. The first business that says to me, You will pay a surcharge, I walk out the door and they keep their product. I can go online and buy it and pay no state tax also. I dont need them. Theyre going to have to compete. If everyone did this, we wouldnt see this. What grumpy people doWhen I saw the article on Toasting manatees, I admit I did a double-take but quickly realized what they were talking about. The caller in the Sound Off was trying to inject some humor, and grumpy people did what grumpy people do they called in unnecessary, caustic remarks about the person instead of just smiling. Thanks for the smile.Years of miseryI think the countys making a big mistake going through with this lawsuit against Progress Energy. Remember all the millions wasted over Citrus Memorial and how the lawyers tied it up for three years or whatever it was. Progress Energy will tie you up for 10 years and it will cost you a fortune. And if you cant see that coming, youre blind.Show consideration It is difficult for people using a walker to get in and out of stores where there are manual doors. Even someone pushing an individual in a wheelchair finds it a real chore pushing the wheelchair and at the same time opening or closing a door. You would be amazed at the lack of consideration on the part of those nearby at offering their help.Watering awayI will not skip watering my lawn until they decide not to give away 28 million gallons of water a year.Observe traffic lawsI know this has been repeated many times, but it bears repeating again. When making a righthand turn when theres a red light, the law reads that you have your right turn signal on, come to a full and complete stop, and proceed with caution after you look both ways. To do anything else causes accidents, is against the law, and even if you see police not following the law, does not mean you should not do it. Everybody should follow the law. Please do that. Theres been close accidents, close calls and a lot of accidents in Citrus County because you dont follow the law. A red light means you have to stop, even if youre turning right. You have to follow the law. S OUND OFF CALL 563-0579

Thanks for helping This is a very special thank you for the nursing assistant (who) gave me a ride home. I took a walk in the woods the other day and I thought if I stayed on a straight trail, it would be no problem to turn around and go back. Well, I was wrong. I veered off in many different directions and did several circles and finally ended up about three miles from my house. I ran into a nice lady (who) offered me and my giant yellow dog a ride home and it was much appreciated. I got home in time to get in my car and get my daughter from work all the way in Crystal River. Thank you again and God bless you. I will keep you in my prayers. Thank you much.Favors Suncoast 2 Congratulations, Citrus County. Finally you realize the Parkway 2 will bring you more people to reside here, to buy land, to build homes, vote and pay taxes. Some will even use Parkway 2 to go back and forth to their places of employment, thus using Citrus County as their permanent address. There will also be those who use Parkway 2 as a means of traveling north and south, who have no intentions of stopping here, which will relieve the traffic on U.S. 19. Therefore, state funds will be saved in purchasing rights of way in the widening of U.S. 19 all the way through all the counties from Tampa to Dunnellon. Yes, the future of Citrus County will be much brighter when this highway is completed. I hope to see it built during my lifetime and not allowed to slip through the cracks as it has in the past.

I wonder if you would print anything positive. For a long time this county has flourished. Most people who tried prospered. Taxes seemed excessive, but people had the money. Well, times have changed. Most people are struggling and cant make ends meet. But no one in government wants to cut back like we, the people, have had to do. The people voted Scott Adams in because they knew he wasnt afraid to point the finger at the problems. You cant clean the pot without stirring it. So more power to Scott Adams.Stepping on toes Theres nothing wrong with Scott Adams stepping on the toes of some people (who) just have been in there doing what they want to do, never asking any citizen what they want done. Just like the way they put the 6-cent gas tax on ... they didnt take it off. Keep on, Scott. No solutions offered This is to the guy calling in about Scott Adams. I have watched Mr. Adams on TV and he has yet to bring up a solution. He wants to cut money to education, yet has no answers about how to make it better.Working for peopleIt is quite obvious the Chronicle does not like Scott Adams. Im just calling in to say I am proud to have voted for this man and it is a pleasure to see someone standing up to the self-serving commissioners with whom he serves. If you dont like what hes doing, just, Im sorry, stand back and watch him work. He may get something done in the peoples best interests. Hot Corner: DUKE ENERGY Greedy CitrusThis is a comment about the taxes not being paid by Duke. Wonder what all the greedy people in Citrus County is going to do when they build a new plant in Levy County and move the whole electrical service to Levy County. Im sure Levy County will be glad to have Duke as a new customer. Theyre not quite as greedy as Citrus County. So good luck to Duke. Im sure theyre going to be moving in the future not tomorrow, but it will happen. Lien for Duke Seems to me the tax collector could put a lien on Dukes property just as they do on us when we dont pay our taxes.Fuzzy math I see where (Duke) Progress Energy is trying to stiff the county school board out of $35 million. The ladies of the schools PTAs are going to need to run a lot of baked good sales, flea markets and spaghetti dinners to make up that shortfall. Sound OFF

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressSTEPHENVILLE, Texas A 25-year-old Iraq war veteran charged with murdering former Navy SEAL and American Sniper author Chris Kyle and his friend turned a gun onto the pair while they were at a Texas shooting range, authorities said Sunday. Eddie Ray Routh of Lancaster was arraigned early Sunday in the deaths of Kyle, 38, and Chad Littlefield, 35, at a shooting range at Rough Creek Lodge, about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth. He was being held on a charge of capital murder and two charges of murder. Capt. Jason Upshaw with the Erath County Sheriffs Office said Routh used a semi-automatic handgun, which authorities later found at his home. Upshaw said ballistics tests werent complete Sunday, but authorities believe it was the gun used in the shootings. Upshaw declined to give any more details about the gun. Routh has not made any comments indicating what his motive may have been, Upshaw said. Sheriff Tommy Bryant said Routh was unemployed and may have been suffering from some type of mental illness from being in the military himself. The U.S. military confirmed Sunday that Routh was a corporal in the Marines, serving in active duty from 2006 to 2010. He was deployed to Iraq in 2007 and Haiti in 2010. His current duty status is listed as reserve. Travis Cox, the director of a nonprofit Kyle helped found, told the Associated Press on Sunday that Kyle and Littlefield had taken Routh to the range. Littlefield was Kyles neighbor and workout buddy, Cox said. What I know is Chris and a gentleman great guy, I knew him well, Chad Littlefield took a veteran out shooting who was struggling with PTSD to try to assist him, try to help him, try to, you know, give him a helping hand and he turned the gun on both of them, killing them, Cox said.

Authorities said they still have an open line of communication with an Alabama man accused of abducting a 5-year-old child and holding him hostage in a bunker since Tuesday, Jan. 29. Associated PressMIDLAND CITY, Ala. A s an Alabama standoff and hostage drama marked a sixth day Sunday, more details emerged about the suspect at the center, with neighbors and officials painting a picture of an isolated man estranged from his family. Authorities say Jim Lee Dykes, 65 a decorated Vietnam-era veteran known as Jimmy to neighbors gunned down a school bus driver and abducted a 5-year-old boy from the bus, taking him to an underground bunker on his rural property. The driver, 66-year-old Charles Albert Poland Jr., was buried Sunday. Dykes, described as a loner who railed against the government, lives up a dirt road outside this tiny hamlet north of Dothan in the southeastern corner of the state. His home is just off the main road north to the state capital of Montgomery, about 80 miles away. The FBI said in a statement Sunday that authorities continue to have an open line of communication with Dykes. The little boy requested Cheez-Its and a red Hot Wheels car, both of which were delivered to the bunker, a separate statement said. Authorities had said they also were delivering medicine and other comfort items, and that Dykes was making the child as comfortable as possible. In the nearby community of Ozark on Sunday, more than 500 people filed into the Civic Center to pay a final tribute to Poland, who was being hailed as a hero for protecting the other children on the school bus before he was shot Tuesday. Poland is now an angel who is watching over the little boy, said Dale County School Superintendent Donny Bynum, who read letters w ritten by three students who had ridden on Polands bus. You didntdeserve to die but you died knowing you kept everyone safe, one child wrote. Dykes grew up in the Dothan area. Mel Adams, a Midland City Council member who owns the lot where reporters are gathered, said he has known Dykes since they were ages 3 and 4. He said Dykes has a sister and a brother, but that he is estranged from his family. Adams said he didnt know what caused the falling-out, but said he knew Dykes had told part of his family to go to hell. Midland City Mayor Virgil Skipper said Dykes sister is in a nursing home. Adams said law enforcement officers have talked to Dykes family members and advised them not to speak with reporters. Government records and interviews with neighbors indicate Dykes joined the Navy in Midland City, serving on active duty from 1964 to 1969. His record shows several awards, including the Vietnam Service Medal and the Good Conduct Medal. Dykes was trained in aviation maintenance and at one point was based in Japan. It was unclear if he saw combat in Vietnam. At some point after his time in the Navy, Dykes lived in Florida, where he worked as a surveyor and a long-haul truck driver. Its unclear how long he stayed there. He had some scrapes with the law in Florida, including a 1995 arrest for improper exhibition of a weapon. The misdemeanor was dismissed. He also was arrested for marijuana possession in 2000. He returned to Alabama about two years ago. Neighbors described Dykes as a man who once beat a dog to death with a lead pipe, threatened to shoot children for setting foot on his property, and patrolled his yard at night with a flashlight and a firearm. Michael Creel said Dykes had an adult daughter, but the two lost touch years ago.

Now the situation is reversed. Dreamliners worldwide were grounded nearly three weeks ago after lithium ion batteries that are part of the planes led to a fire in one plane and smoke in a second. But new rules exempt aircraft batteries from the ban on large lithium ion batteries as cargo on flights by passenger planes. In effect, that means the Dreamliners batteries are now allowed to fly only if theyre not attached to a Dreamliner. Dreamliner defect makes for odd regulatory quirk

An official looks on during a power outage in the Superdome during Super Bowl XLVII. RAVENS RUN AWAY EARLY IN BATTLE BETWEEN BROTHERS BEFORE A BLACKOUT FLIPS THE 49ERS FORTUNES Associated Press NEW ORLEANS R ay Lewis will ride into retirement a champion. Baltimores standout middle linebacker began his final night on the football field with a motivational speech to his teammates. He ended it looking upward into a shower of silver streamers and purple confetti after the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 Sunday night to win the Super Bowl. Standing tall in the middle of a defense that survived a frenzied comeback by Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers, Lewis put a lovely bow on his 17th NFL season by earning his second Super Bowl ring 12 years after the first. When Lewis first led Baltimore to Super Bowl glory, he was a 25-year-old at the height of his game. A terror in the middle of the best defense in the league, Lewis was voted MVP after the Ravens beat the New York Giants 34-7 to earn their first title. On Sunday night, Lewis and his defense played a supporting role to Joe Flacco and the offense. The 37-year-old Lewis had only two solo tackles through the first three quarters and sometimes struggled to cover receivers venturing into his area. Wide receiver RAYS LAST RIDE: LEWIS CAPS STORIED CAREER WITH A CROWN San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree scores on a 31-yard touchdown reception during the second half. Associated Press NEW ORLEANS A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nations biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions. Flacco, voted the MVP, threw three first-half touchdown passes to cap an 11-TD, zero-interception postseason. Jacoby Jones returned the second-half kickoff 108 yards, a Super Bowl record, to give Baltimore a 28-6 lead. Moments later, lights lining the indoor arena faded, making it difficult to see. When action resumed, Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers scored 17 consecutive points, getting as close as 31-29.

Toarlyn Fitzpatrick scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for South Florida (10-11, 1-8), which dropped its fourth straight. South Florida held the Huskies to just five first-half field goals and led 27-15 at the half. But the Huskies matched their first-half output 3 1/2 minutes into the second half, going on a 15-2 run after intermission to take the lead. Napier missed a long 3-pointer that would have won the game in regulation, but responded with two straight to open the extra period. No. 12 Louisville 70, No. 25 Marquette 51LOUISVILLE, Ky. Russ Smith scored 18 points, Peyton Siva added 14 and No. 12 Louisville shot 52 percent to run away from No. 25 Marquette 70-51. The lopsided outcome was somewhat surprising considering what was at stake for both teams in the Big East. Marquette had an opportunity to take a one-game lead on Syracuse, but the Golden Eagles were left settling for a firstplace tie with the Orange. The Cardinals (18-4, 6-3), meanwhile, moved a half-game closer to both schools with their second straight win, remaining in a four-way tie for third. The Cardinals finished 27 of 52 from the field after an 0-for8 start while holding the Golden Eagles (15-5, 6-2) to 36 percent shooting (19 of 53). They also outrebounded Marquette 38-26.

Hollins finished with 17 points to help the Gophers (17-5, 54 Big Ten) survive a rough second half and escape the scrappy Hawkeyes (14-8, 3-6). With Minnesota trailing 59-57, the 6-foot-4 Hollins came off a screen to get open in the corner on an inbounds play and made the shot over 6-foot-1 Mike Gesell. Hollins then hounded Gesell in the corner on the other end to force the ball out of bounds. Andre Hollins, who had 15 points, made two free throws to stretch the lead to three, and Gesells tying attempt rolled off the front rim. Gesell finished with 11 points, and Aaron White and Zach McCabe each had 10 for the Hawkeyes.

Pau Gasol had 23 points and 10 rebounds and was the last line of defense for Los Angeles, contesting Detroits last-second alley-oop attempt and helping the Lakers hold on for a 98-97 victory over the Pistons. Los Angeles blew an 18-point third-quarter lead but went back ahead for good on Kobe Bryants driving three-point play with 1:09 remaining. That gave the Lakers a 9895 lead, and they held on despite missing four free throws in the final 16.8 seconds. The normally reliable Steve Nash missed two with 2.7 seconds left, giving Detroit one more chance. Inbounding from midcourt with 1.2 seconds to play, the Pistons tried a lob to rookie big man Andre Drummond, but with Gasol contesting the play, Drummond couldnt convert his one-handed dunk attempt. Celtics 106, Clippers 104 BOSTON Paul Pierce scored 22 points and the Boston Celtics held off a late comeback to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 106-104 and improve to 4-0 since losing Rajon Rondo for the season. The Clippers had cut a five-point deficit to 103-101 on a 3-pointer by Eric Bledsoe with 56 seconds remaining. But Avery Bradley drew an offensive foul on Los Angeles Jamal Crawford with 26 seconds to go, and Pierce held on to the ball before making a 3-pointer with 2.5 second left to clinch the win.

Its an important one for me, because its been a while since I won, been a while since Ive been in contention, Mickelson said. I was certainly nervous heading into today. I think the thing Im most excited about was the way I was able to regain control of my thoughts after a few shots early on that I didnt care for. Mickelson missed a chance for a 59 in the first round when his 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole caught the right edge of the cup, curled 180 degrees and stayed out. He settled for a 60 and followed with rounds of 65 and 64 to take a six-stroke lead into the final round. Mickelson won after struggling the last two weeks in his season-opening events tying for 37th at La Quinta and 51st at Torrey Pines and creating some headlines by talking about tax increases. He now heads to Pebble Beach for his title defense. I think that sets up the tone for the rest of the year, because I really started to play well, Mickelson said. But for me, the rest of the year took a turn on Tuesday when I got my new driver. It just changed my whole deal. Brandt Snedeker finished second, four strokes back after a 65. Sometimes you have to tip your hat and say, Phil played unbelievable and deserved to win, Snedeker said. Thats kind of what this week was all about. Mickelson took a three-stroke lead to the 17th tee, and nearly drove into the left-side water on the drivable par 4, his ball stopping a yard short of the hazard. He hit his 25-yard second shot 15 feet past the hole and made the birdie putt. Mickelson parred the par-4 18th after another drive to the left, one that easily cleared the water he hit into Friday en route to a double bogey, and Snedeker closed with a bogey. Mickelson had his third wire-to-wire victory and first since the 2006 BellSouth Classic a 13-stroke blowout the week before the second of his three Masters victories. He pushed his victory total to 41, winning for the first time since 51 weeks ago at Pebble Beach. Making his 24th appearance in the event that he also won in 1996 and 2005, Mickelson tied the tournament scoring record set by Mark Calcavecchia in 2001, and joined Calcavecchia, Arnold Palmer and Gene Littler as the only three-time winners. With six victories in Arizona, Mickelson also matched Johnny Millers tour record. Mickelson bogeyed the par-4 second and birdied the two frontnine par 3s, pulling off his best shot of the day on No. 7. After Snedeker, four strokes back after a birdie on No. 6, hit within 10 feet of the back-left pin to set up a birdie, Mickelsons tee shot leaked right and stopped an inch from the back fringe, leaving him 55 feet with a 20-foot swath of fringe between his ball and the hole. Mickelson decided to putt through the fringe rather than chip over it and had caddie Jim Mackay remove the flagstick. The 42-year-old former Arizona State star hit it perfectly, with the ball avoiding the rough, rolling back onto the green and racing into the cup. Dubai Desert ClassicDUBAI, United Arab Emirates Stephen Gallacher made an eagle on the 16th hole to win the Dubai Desert Classic, overcoming early jitters to beat playing partner Richard Sterne by three shots. Gallacher finished with a 22-under total of 266. Looking for his first European Tour win since 2004, Gallacher (71) had a nervous start. The 111th-ranked Scotsman had a three-shot lead over Sterne but bogeyed the first two holes while Sterne birdied the second. Wire-to-wire Associated Press Phil Mickelson shouts as he celebrates a long birdie putt on the seventh hole Sunday during the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Ariz. Querrey lifts US to victory in Davis Cup Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Sam Querrey beat Thiago Alves 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (3) on Sunday to give the United States a dramatic 3-2 victory over Brazil and a spot in the Davis Cup quarterfinals. The U.S. will host Serbia in the next round in Boise, Idaho, from April 5-7. Querrey stepped up after teammate John Isner lost 2-6, 6-4, 6-7 (7), 6-4, 6-3 to Thomaz Bellucci earlier Sunday, forcing a deciding fifth match. It was the first time since 2000 that a U.S. team needed to win the fifth match to advance. The 25-year-old Querrey started fast, breaking Alves in the second game of the match. But Alves, ranked No. 141, responded with breaks of his own in the third and ninth games to take the opening set. Querrey responded with a consistent array of cross-court winners to control play the rest of the way. While Isner, the highest-ranked singles player in the tie at No. 16, bemoaned his play, Querrey expressed satisfaction with a straight-set win over Bellucci on Friday and the four-setter against Alves on Sunday. I was very happy with the way I battled through (the match), Querrey said. I fought through the tough points and got breaks in the second, third and fourth sets. I was just happy to get through it. Querrey was especially effective with his serve. He finished with 26 aces, compared to one for Alves, often clocking 120 mph or faster. When Alves was able to return a serve, it often was with little pace, enabling Querrey to eventually hit winners. Spectators flock to sleepy event for Nadal VINA DEL MAR, Chile They were giving the tickets away a year ago and still had a difficult time attracting fans. Its a different story this year at the VTR Open, a small ATP clay-court tournament in this resort city on Chiles Pacific coast. This is where Rafael Nadal has decided to make his comeback after sitting out for more than seven months with an injured left knee. Nadal had never been to Chile, much less played an event here. Now hes being treated like a native son, with local newspapers digging up his connections to distant family members in the country. Chilean President Sebastian Pinera was one of the first to greet him when he arrived. Call it the Nadal Effect. This country wants success and wants to be seen as successful, said tournament press officer Rafael Walker. For a long time the country was like a little island, isolated from the world by the sea and mountains. So when you get a big star here like Nadal hes treated like a rock star. Associated Press USAs John Isner argues a call Sunday during his match with Brazils Thomaz Bellucci in the first match of the day during the 2013 World Group First Round of the Davis Cup at Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville. Isner lost in five sets, but the USA team won 3-2. Brandt Snedeker

Citrus drivers prevailed in four of the five classes featuring county drivers, while five more finished in the top three of their respective divisions. County competitors ruled the top of the Pure Stocks, with winner Karlin Ray of Floral City, second-place Jason Waller of Inverness and returning champion Happy Florian of Lecanto completing the top of the field while Inverness Mike Autenrieth finished fifth in the 20-lapper. Driving the No. 32 car his brother Jeremy won the Mini Stock points championship with a season ago, Floral Citys Travis Sharrone was perfect on his first try. The 17-year-old captured a 20-lap victory in his first-ever race after pulling aheadaround lap 6 in the Minis. I was getting beat in the No. 1 and 2 turns, which was nerve-racking, and I held it down on the 3 and 4s, Sharrone said about maintaining a lead against second-place finisher Dr. Shannon Kennedy of Floral City Animal Clinic. Fellow Floral City resident Dora Thorne, the 2012 Street Stock champion who was driving a Mini Stock owned by Kennedy, climbed from the back of the pack to finish third in her first Minis race while awaiting next Saturdays Street Stock season opener. Hernandos Richie Smith was dominant in a 40-lap Open Wheel Modified race that had little movement among the top spots as heat-winners Smith and Wesley Chapels Troy Robinson were wire-to-wire as No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. Devin McLeod, of Zephyrhills, grabbed the third position relatively early and held on for the remainder, while Inverness drivers Herb Neumann Jr. and Steven Hise finished sixth and eighth, respectively. Reigning points champion Jay Witfoth of Beverly Hills ensured a dramatic 25-lap Sportsman division race by making several moves on the field before falling short at second behind Sarasotas Mark Peterson. Cautions on laps 24 and 25 hurt Whitfoths chances of converting a final push for the win. Once the tires cool off a little bit, its hard to jump out there on the outside, said Whitfoth on contending with a late caution from behind. We just waited a little too long to go after Peterson. Hes was good, as he normally is. Well take a second-place. Mark Landis, of Delray Beach, kicked off the Southern Regions Pro Challenge Series with a victory, and husband-and-wife duo Ron (first place) and Jennifer Dillon, of Inverness Dillons Irish Pub, took the top spots in the three-car Hornet division race. The Citrus County Speedway point season continues next Saturday with heat races beginning at 5:30 p.m. Countys drivers have strong showing at Speedway points opener Michael Crabtree caught a 19-yarder on San Franciscos second series, and tight end Vernon Davis eluded Lewis twice before making second-quarter catches. Lewis did, however, make two tackles during the 49ers final drive. San Francisco had a fourth-and-goal from 5 when Lewis charged in on a blitz. He didnt get to Kaepernick, but the quarterbacks pass sailed out of the end zone. After amassing a team-high 44 tackles in Baltimores first three playoff wins, Lewis was anything but exceptional against the 49ers. But the Ravens played like champions around him, and now Lewis can saunter into the sunset after putting his fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy a second time. While working his way back from a torn right triceps that had kept him sidelined since Oct. 14, Lewis told high-ranking team officials that he was going to retire after this season. He shared the news with his teammates and the media on Jan. 2, saying Baltimores postseason run would be his last ride. And what a journey it was. After defeating Indianapolis at home to open the playoffs, the Ravens beat top-seeded Denver on the road and knocked off second-seeded New England. Then, underdogs again in the Super Bowl, Baltimore blew most of a 22-point lead in the second half before mounting one final defensive stand. Lewis old buddy, 34-year-old Ed Reed, contributed a first-half interception. Jacoby Jones scored two touchdowns, and after the second a 108-yard kickoff return to open the third quarter he saluted his retiring teammate with a rendition of the squirrel dance Lewis made famous. Days earlier, Lewis was confronted about his use of deer antler spray in his effort to return from the triceps injury. He vehemently denied trying the banned substance, and that sideshow fizzled out quickly enough so it was not a distraction on Sunday. Lewis was the second draft pick in Ravens history, following Jonathan Ogden in 1996. Ogden, who was elected into the NFL Hall of Fame on Saturday, waved to his former teammate during the pregame coin flip Sunday. Perhaps one day, Ogden will extend the greeting to Lewis in Canton, Ohio. LEWIS Continued from Page B1 But Baltimore stopped San Francisco on fourth-and-goal from the 5 with under 2 minutes left when Kaepernicks pass sailed beyond Michael Crabtree in the end zone. The biggest deficit a team has ever overcome to win a Super Bowl is 10 points, and there were moments were it appeared San Francisco had a chance to better that mark. Instead, the 49ers lost for the first time in six trips to the Super Bowl. The AFC champion Ravens (14-6), a franchise that moved from Cleveland to Baltimore 17 years ago, improved to 2-0 in the big game. They also won the championship in 2001, when linebacker Ray Lewis was voted the games MVP Lewis was not a major factor this time, but he was a center of attention, playing in the final game of his 17-year career before retiring. The 49ers struggled early in the first Super Bowl coaching matchup between brothers: Baltimores John Harbaugh is 15 months older than San Franciscos Jim Harbaugh. Baltimore led 28-6 after Jones opened the second half with the longest kickoff return in a Super Bowl, his eyes glancing up at the videoboard, presumably to watch himself sprint to the end zone. The 49ers showed they were capable of a comeback in their previous game: They trailed by 17 against the Atlanta Falcons before winning the NFC championship game. Shortly following Jones return, the sudden, odd power outage arrived. Escalators werent working. Officials stopped play about 1 1/2 minutes into the third quarter, and the bizarre delay lasted 34 minutes in real time before action resumed. Some players sat. Others stretched. Some fans chanted, Lets go, Ravens! Others passed time by doing the wave. This was the 10th time New Orleans hosted the big game tying Miami for most in a city and first since Hurricane Katrina devastated the Big Easy in August 2005. When play resumed, NFC champion San Francisco (13-5-1) began making things more interesting, scoring 17 points in less than 4 1/2 minutes. First, Kaepernick threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Crabtree, pulling them within 15 points midway through the third quarter. Ravens defensive backs Cary Williams and Bernard Pollard missed tackles on the play. Then, with 5 minutes left in the third quarter, Frank Gore swept around right end for a 6-yard TD run, making it 28-20, before Ravens running back Ray Rices fumble gave the ball right back to the 49ers. San Francisco tacked on David Akers 34-yard field goal to get within 28-23 after he missed from a longer distance but the Ravens were whistled for running into the kicker. It was his third successful kick of the game after hitting from 36 and 27 yards in the first half. How close was it heading into the fourth quarter? Each team had exactly 17 first downs. Total yardage was nearly the same, with the 49ers slightly ahead, 317-315. Time of possession was nearly split down the middle, too. About 2 minutes into the fourth quarter, rookie kicker Justin Tucker made a 19-yard field goal to stretch the Ravens lead to 31-23. Not long later, Kaepernicks 15-yard run around the left side the longest TD run by a quarterback in Super Bowl history made it 31-29. His 2-point conversion pass intended for Randy Moss was incomplete. A 38-yarder by Tucker made it 34-29 with 4:19 left in regulation. Baltimore purposely gave up a safety in the closing seconds to run time off the clock, setting the final score. Kaepernick was making only his 10th start in the NFL, having taken over the job after Alex Smith got a concussion during a game. After his touchdown run, Kaepernick kissed his tattooed right biceps, his celebration move. The first half was all about Flacco. He went 13 for 20 for 192 yards and the three scores over the opening two quarters, becoming only the sixth QB in 47 Super Bowls to throw for that many TDs by halftime. Flacco finished 22 of 33 for 287 yards. LIGHTS Continued from Page B1

Associated PressNEW ORLEANS Quarterback Joe Flacco put off contract talks with the Baltimore Ravens until after the season was done. Seems like a pretty good decision at the moment, huh? Capping a perfect postseason, the unassuming and unheralded Flacco completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three first-half touchdowns Sunday, earning Super Bowl MVP honors for leading the Ravens to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Setting aside any questions about just how good he is and where he belongs in the conversation about the leagues best quarterbacks, Flacco became only the sixth in 47 Super Bowls to throw for three scores in a first half, connecting with Anquan Boldin for 13 yards, Dennis Pitta for 1, and Jacoby Jones for 56. And the admittedly mildmannered guy, who played his college football far from the spotlight at Delaware, wrapped up Baltimores four-game run to the title with 11 TD passes and zero interceptions. It was an impressive streak that included road victories against two of the games best QBs, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Flaccos job in the second half Sunday was more about being safe than spectacular. He had helped Baltimore take a 21-6 halftime lead, and it grew to 28-6 when Jones returned the second-half kickoff a Super Bowl-record 108 yards. That, though, is when things got strange. First, a power outage knocked out many lights inside the Superdome, delaying action for more than a half-hour. And when play resumed, San Francisco quickly scored 17 consecutive points to make things interesting. The Ravens held on down the stretch though, with two short field goals by rookie Justin Tucker padding the lead, and the Ray Lewis-led defense stopping the 49ers on a fourth-and-goal at the 5. I was sitting there thinking, Theres no way. Theres no way we stop them here, Flacco said. But we did. Neither Flacco nor his team appeared to be ready to take on all comers as the regular season concluded. After all, the Ravens lost four of their final games to stumble into the playoffs. And Flacco, a fifth-year pro, finished only 12th in the 32-team NFL in passer rating at a passable 87.7 way behind league leader Aaron Rodgers 108.0 while compiling 22 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. Middle-of-the-pack, to say the least. But he and his team sure did shine when the results mattered most. I tell you what: We dont make it easy, Flacco said. But thats the way the city of Baltimore is. Thats the way we are. He certainly becomes a different player in the playoffs. He set an NFL record for quarterbacks by leading his team to playoff wins in each of his first five seasons. He is 9-4 overall in the postseason. His contract is up now. And he could wind up with one of the biggest deals in NFL history, perhaps commanding somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 million a year. There would have been an opportunity to sign something last offseason, but Flaccos agent and the Ravens could not agree on how much he was worth. The rest of the world wasnt really sure, either. Flacco gave quite an answer Sunday.S UPER B OWL C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, F EBRUARY4, 2013 B5 San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick throws under pressure from Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs during the second half of the Super Bowl.

Associated PressNEW YORK The lovestruck zombies of Warm Bodies swarmed the box office on Super Bowl weekend with a $20 million opening. On a weekend that Hollywood largely punts to football, the PG-13 film from Lionsgates Summit Entertainment easily led the box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Super Bowl always means a significant slide in movie-going on Sunday studios predict a decrease of as much as 70 percent from Saturday to Sunday but Warm Bodies still lured many teenage fans. The film is about a zombie whose love for a human redeems him. Lionsgate, which also released the Twilight saga, is calling it a rom-zomcom for its mix of humor, romance and the supernatural. The film appealed particularly to females, who made up 60 percent of the audience. Younger female audiences have some history of turning out on Super Bowl weekends. The most successful film released the weekend of the big game was in 2008, when Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert opened with $31.1 million. Action films continued to fare poorly in 2013, as Sylvester Stallones Bullet to the Head opened with just $4.5 million for Warner Bros. But both openings were poor. Along with the weak performance of Jason Stathams Parker, which has taken in $12.4 million in two weeks for FilmDistrict, moviegoers arent turning out for traditional Rrated action movies, though that trend may reverse itself when Bruce Willis A Good Day to Die Hard opens Feb. 14. Last weeks top film, Paramounts Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, dropped to second with $9.2 million on the weekend. The other debut of note was Lionsgates Stand Up Guys, which stars Al Pacino and Christopher Walken as veteran gangsters on a last hurrah romp. Though it opened in limited release in 659 theaters, it took in just $1.5 million. The most Super Bowl-appropriate film in theaters, the Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook, continued to add to its stretched-out run for the Weinstein Co. The film, which centers on a family of diehard Philadelphia Eagles fans, came in third place, adding $8.1 million for a cumulative total of $80.4 million. Birthday Your financial prospects look to be quite good in the year ahead, and there is a strong possibility that you could make even more profits by engaging in joint endeavors. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Wishing wont make problematic matters disappear. Serious issues must not be treated with indifference, especially if they involve others. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) No matter how strong the urge, dont attempt to impose on any clique where experience tells you that you wont be welcome. Turn to true friends only. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Dont despair if you face tribulation, because even weighty matters can be worked out. If you remember to think positively, youll be able to take your challenges in stride. Aries (March 21-April 19) Before opening your mouth, stop and count to 10 if you find yourself in a conflict of opinion with another party. Only when youre calm should you venture to talk things out. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Although it might not live up to your fullest hopes, something profitable could develop from a situation engineered by a friend. Be happy with what you get. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Dont think you have to stick to a particular procedure because of tradition when an associate has what could prove to be a better idea. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you happen to make a few mistakes at the start of a project, instead of panicking, you should stop and catch your breath.

Surprising twists could occur, enabling you to snatch success from the jaws of defeat. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Trying too hard to get the approval of your peers can work against you. However, if you relax and just be yourself, you will easily gain the endorsement youre seeking. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Be smart and downplay some advice given to you by a well-intentioned friend. Youre better equipped to evaluate certain personal matters than he or she is. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Some periodic, extravagant inclinations could be stirring within you, and need to be checked as soon as possible. Enjoy yourself, but do so as inexpensively as possible. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Provided you treat all of your friends equally, this could be a rather pleasant day. If you show any partiality, however, it might not be so hot.

Florida LOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Page B6 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2013 Warm Bodies heats up box office Associated Press A member of the Niner Noise Drumline entertains fans Sunday before Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. Associated Press NEW YORK W ith storylines ranging from head injuries to deer antler extract, CBS had a spicy gumbo of issues for its daylong pregame coverage of the Super Bowl in New Orleans. Party background noise for most viewers, the oftderided Super Bowl pregame programming can also be revealing of the broadcasting network. Often, networks bend over backward to awkwardly promote unrelated shows. Fox (one shudders to recall) once put a red carpet in a parking lot with Ryan Seacrest. CBSs coverage of its 18th Super Bowl didnt lack in cross-promotion (including one shameless tie-in with Pizza Hut), but it had a more professional feel than the gluttonous pregame affairs often do. The network centered its Super Bowl lead-up on teary human interest stories and football-centric programming. But there was plenty of softballing. The controversial Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis was interviewed not by a journalist, but by his former teammate and current CBS Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe. The interview, disappointingly, was taped before the story broke alleging his use of deer antler extract, which includes a banned substance. No need to worry, though, Sharpe quickly explained that issue was old news. He also let Lewis completely sidestep addressing the double murder case in which Lewis testified against two men and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice. The biggest issue in the NFL today head injuries was frequently discussed by the CBS crew, including a story by NFL Today host James Brown that delved into some of the effects of the NFL s hard hitting, and the efforts under way to protect players. But the bent of the story, as Dan Marino insisted on the set, was that the NFL is way out in front of the issue. Coming to a Super Bowl pregame show for an indepth, frank discussion of a subject like concussions, though, is perhaps foolhardy. As the two-tiered panel of analysts each weighed in, it was difficult to hear over the boozy, whooping fans bordering the Jackson Square set outside the Super Dome. In an interview with CBS News Scott Pelley, President Barack Obama again said that if he had a son interested in football, he would think before letting him play football, given whats now known about head injuries. Whether head trauma would get much airtime during the game broadcast by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms was to be one of the broadcasts big questions. Three years running, the NFL s championship game has set a viewership record, topped last year by NBCs broadcast to an average audience of 111.3 million people. But ratings were a mere point of pride for CBS heading into kickoff. The ads had already been sold (some at more than $4 million a pop), so the network could only hope to put forth its best broadcast and deflect as much of the Super Bowl glow to its other programs and its cable sports network. The game was also streamed live on both CBSSports.com and NFL.com, but CBS expected the broadcast to be the overwhelmingly more popular viewing choice. For CBS, softballs ahead of football Associated Press So-called rom-zom-com Warm Bodies topped the box office this week, with Hansel and Gretel and Silver Linings Playbook trailing. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Ben Affleck has won the top film honor from the Directors Guild of America for his CIA thriller Argo, further sealing its status as best-picture front-runner at the Academy Awards. Saturdays prize also normally would make Affleck a near shoo-in to win best-director at the Feb. 24 Oscars, since the Directors Guild recipient nearly always goes on to claim the same prize at Hollywoods biggest night. But Affleck surprisingly missed out on an Oscar directing nomination, along with several other key favorites, including fellow Directors Guild contenders Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty and Tom Hooper for Les Miserables. Afflecks Oscar snub has not hurt Argo and may even have earned it some favor among awards voters as an underdog favorite. Argo has dominated other awards since the Oscar nominations. I dont think that this makes me a real director, but I think it means Im on my way, said Affleck, who won for just his third film behind the camera. The Directors Guild honors continued Hollywoods strange awards season, which could culminate with a big Oscar win for Afflecks Argo. The guilds prize for best director typically is a final blessing for the film that goes on to win bestpicture and director at the Oscars. Affleck can go only onefor-two at the Oscars, though. While Argo is up for best picture, the directors branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences overlooked him for a directing slot. Backstage at the Directors Guild honors, Affleck said he had nothing but respect for the academy and that youre not entitled to anything. Im thrilled and honored that the academy nominated me as a producer of the movie, Affleck said. I know our movie, were a little bit underdog and a little bit the little engine that could, and you take me out of it maybe helps ... its just about that picture. I feel like its OK, Im really lucky, Im in a good place. With 12 Oscar nominations, Steven Spielbergs Civil War saga Lincoln initially looked like the Oscar favorite over such other potential favorites as Argo, Les Miserables and Zero Dark Thirty, since films generally have little chance of winning best picture if they are not nominated for best director. Only three films have done it in 84 years, most recently 1989s best-picture champ Driving Miss Daisy, which failed to earn a directing nomination for Bruce Beresford. But Afflecks Argo, in which he also stars as a CIA operative who hatches a bold plan to rescue six Americans during the hostage crisis in Iran, has swept up all the major awards since the Oscar nominations. Argo won best drama and director at the Golden Globes and top film honors from the Screen Actors Guild and the Producers Guild of America. Many of the same film professionals who vote in guild awards also cast ballots for the Oscars, so all the wins for Argo are a strong sign that the film has the inside track for best picture. Milos Forman, a twotime Directors Guild and Oscar winner for One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest and Amadeus, received the groups lifetime-achievement award. Guild President Taylor Hackford let the crowd in a toast to Forman, who was ill and unable to attend. Malik Bendjelloul won the guilds documentary award for Searching for Sugar Man, his study of the fate of critically acclaimed but obscure 1970s singer-songwriter Rodriquez. The film also is nominated for best documentary at the Oscars. Jay Roach won the guild trophy for TV movies and miniseries for Game Change, his drama starring Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in her 2008 vice-presidential run.

M ONDAY, F EBRUARY4, 2013 B7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Ingrid Bergman said, A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous. At the bridge table, if you find a lovely, extra, contract-fulfilling trick, especially in a grand slam, your partner will give you a metaphorical kiss. In this deal, South barrels into seven spades. After West leads the heart queen, how should declarer continue? If South had used a second dose of Blackwood and learned that two kings were missing, he would have stopped in six spades and ruined a good story. (If you use Roman Key Card Blackwood, it is a good idea to treat an immediate response of four no-trump as regular Blackwood, not RKCB. To use RKCB in openers suit, make a forcing raise, then bid four no-trump on the second round.) When in a grand slam, count winners. Here, South has only 12: six spades, two hearts, one diamond and three clubs. Where might a 13th trick come from? There is only one sensible chance: hearts. That requires a 4-3 heart break and three dummy entries: two for the heart ruffs in the closed hand and one to return to the dummy to cash the established heart. What are those entries? They must be one heart and two clubs. So, after winning the first trick on the board, declarer must not touch trumps. He must immediately cash the second heart winner (discarding a diamond from hand) and ruff a heart. Then he draws trumps, plays a club to dummys queen, ruffs another heart, leads a club to the ace, and pitches his second low diamond on the last heart.

We have children together. I have reached the point in my life that I wish to be married. I never wanted to be a girlfriend forever, and he knew this from the beginning. John says stupid things like, If you did such-and-such, then Id marry you. I dont believe marriage is about how much I can do for him. Its about loving each other enough to commit. I love John, but he is unwilling to take that step, so I have told him if we are not married by next summer, he has to move out and let me get on with my life. Im not trying to force him to the altar. Its simply that if a legal commitment isnt in the cards, I need to plan my future without him. The problem is, John tells me he will not leave. I dont want things to get nasty by involving the authorities, but I want more out of my life than he does. Over the past few months, I have made myself completely miserable just thinking about all of this. Am I being unreasonable? Am I putting myself and my needs first by demanding he make a choice? Dazed and Confused Dear Dazed: No. Johns needs have come first for the past 10 years. But aside from that, you already may have a legal commitment in place. When a couple lives together as long as you have, it is recognized in many states as a common-law marriage. So, although you havent had a ceremony, you may, in fact, be legally tied. You also have children, and a separation will entail custody, visitation and child support arrangements, so you might consider counseling before disentangling yourself. Even something as simple as tossing him out of the house becomes a legal matter. Check the laws in your state regarding commonlaw marriage, and if necessary, get the assistance of an attorney. Dear Annie: We have a home in another state and allow family members and friends to vacation there. Recently, when we went to the house, we found several framed family photographs of our guests throughout the family room and bedroom. I think this is in poor taste and that our guests have overstepped their privileges. Should I say thank you and simply put the photos away? Or should I allow others to decorate my home? Concerned Dear Concerned: Well, this is certainly nervy. You are obviously such an accommodating host that your guests feel a little too much at home. We suggest returning the photographs to the owners, saying, You must have left these at our house when you last stayed there. I know you would want them back so you can appreciate them in your own home. Dear Annie: I am S.W. from California, the 88-year-old who had a falling out with his daughter. She and her husband cut off contact, so I cut them out of my will. After the letter appeared, I got a call from my son-in-law, who referred me to some online comments about your column. I was surprised by the negative response. It seems there is a generation gap. I was a Depression kid, and there was no help from the government. If you couldnt pay for food, you starved. Having gone through such rough times, we wanted to make things easy for our kids, and we gave them everything. It only resulted in spoiling them, and they, in turn, spoiled the next generation. These kids expect everything to be given to them and show no respect for their parents. My generation always showed respect. Fortunately, as a result of your publishing my letter, my daughter contacted me, and we are now speaking again. She doesnt see things my way, and I dont see things her way, but we have agreed to disagree.

Editors note: In an economic climate where jobs are at a premium, the Chronicle is publishing an occasional series, Citrus County Works, profiling local people and the jobs they perform. Today Librarian Susan Mutschler.NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerLibrarians read books. Rylee Kirkpatrick, 8.Librarians read stories and sing songs. Rory Lewis, 4.What do I think librarians do? Among other things, librarians assist people in finding books, do administrative things, check books in and out, advise patrons, keep a nice, safe, comfortable place for people to enjoy the library. Theyre friendly and nice and keep the library in order so you can find your books. Janice Clapp, Homosassa winter resident. HOMOSASSA If you think librarians just sit at a desk reading encyclopedias, direct people to the biography section and shush people making too much noise, then you dont know librarians. Were so much more, said Susan Mutschler, public services manager for the Citrus County Library System. Mutschler works at both the Homosassa Public Library and the Coastal Region Library in Crystal River. Today librarians are educators, marketers, we bring cultural activities to the community, Mutschler said. I do planning and budgeting, grant writing, public speaking and fundraising. Were expected to know everything and be in the know constantly, especially when it comes to technology. She said much of knowing everything is knowing where to find answers to peoples questions. From students needing help finding information for term papers or science projects to people wanting to find out how to set up a new business or research a patent, librarians know where to go. Theres so much information out there that librarians know how to hone in on, she said. Theres something called the invisible or deep web specialty search techniques that they teach you when you go to library school. To be a librarian, a person needs a masters degree. And librarians always quote their sources when they give an answer. We had a call from a man who asked what a cuckold was, she said. He said, My wife just called me a cuckold and I want to know what that means. We looked it up and read him the definition According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a cuckold is a man whose wife is unfaithful. You could hear a pin drop, she said. Sometimes were not always the bearer of good news.

Canines, felines the stars at eventERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerINVERNESS It was a paw-fect day for four-legged best friends Saturday. They appeared to be smiling as they strutted their clean coats up and down the aisles of the Citrus County Auditorium at the second annual Best Friend Fest. Pet owners and animal lovers alike appeared for the pet adoption extravaganza. We want to promote all of the organizations involved here, said Kelly Gill, volunteer outreach coordinator. It is not just about our shelter. A lot of the rescue groups in the community have pets for adoption too. The fair-like event also included food vendors, face painting, a silent auction and a bloodmobile to benefit Animal Services Special Needs Fund, which pays for animal medical care. People who donated pet food for needy owners were entered into a drawing for a prize. We are also looking for foster homes for a lot of animals, Gill said. We need people who are willing to open up their homes for needy animals while they wait for their forever home. Twenty-eight organizations including groomers, trainers, veterinarians, rescue groups, photographers and the county shelter promoted adoption and care for the furry friends at the event, which was sponsored by Citrus County Animal Services and the Citrus County Chronicle.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-5635660, ext. 1334, or eworthington @chronicleonline.com.

Fast friends made at adoption expo NANCYKENNEDY Staff writer INVERNESS After being renters for nearly four years, theres nothing like having your own home. Thats what the members of American Legion Post 77 in Inverness celebrated Saturday at the dedication of their permanent meeting place, the former Inverness Highlands Civic Association building on Little Al Point in the Inverness Highlands. We had our eye on this to purchase and were blessed when they gave it to us as a gift back in November, said Norm Brumett, Post 77 commander. The post had been renting the facility for the previous four years. Prior to that, they met at the Key Training Center building in Inverness. As the dedication ceremony began, Lee Cloward, Highlands Civic Association president, passed the deed to Brumett, saying, The Highlands civic organization began in 1976 ... and when we built this building, it was just a barn structure. What you see here is the evolution of what we started with. The Legion now has taken the building and they have improved it further with the hope of it being a centerpiece for the entire community. American Legion Post 77 has 329 members, and Brumett said they are always looking for more, especially younger members, which include both male and female veterans. Were in the process of starting a Sons of the American Legion squadron, he said, for sons of American Legion members. He added that the post is thrilled to be the recipients of both the civic associations buildingand the property, as well. Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted said he was honored to represent the city at the dedication and commended the post for its participation in city events, especially the annual Flag Day ceremony.

John Kerry, D-Mass., as the 68th U.S. Secretary of State. He took office on Feb. 1. GOP Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas and James Inhofe of Oklahoma cast the negative votes. A yes vote was to confirm Kerry. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, Yes. Debt-Limit Waiver: Senators voted, 64-34, to waive the statutory debt limit until May 19, allowing the Treasury to borrow above the current $16.4 trillion limit until then. A yes vote was to send President Obama a bill that also denies pay to lawmakers if they fail to pass a fiscal 2014 budget by April 15. (HR 325) Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Egypt Aid Cutoff: Voting 79-19, senators tabled a bid to end F-16 aircraft deliveries and other U.S. military aid to Egypt and its shaky Muslim Brotherhood-led government. A yes vote was to kill the amendment to HR 325 (above) on grounds it would upend U.S.-Egypt relations, hurt Israel and worsen chaos in the Middle East. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Dollar-for-Dollar Debt Hike: Voting 54-44, senators tabled (killed) an amendment to require one dollar in future spending cuts for every dollar increase in the national-debt limit. That limit deals with the past as it applies to money already appropriated by Congress. A yes vote was to kill the amendment to HR 325. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Hurricane Sandy Aid: Voting 62-36, senators sent President Obama a bill to appropriate $50.5 billion in disaster aid, most of which would provide immediate and long-term help for areas of Connecticut, New Jersey and New York struck three months ago by Hurricane Sandy. This is emergency aid and thus deficit spending. A yes vote was to pass HR 152. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Disaster-Aid Offset: Senators rejected, 35-62, an amendment to pay the $50.5 billion cost of HR 152 (above) by cutting the same amount from discretionary spending programs both military and non-military over the next nine years. A yes vote was to cut non-entitlement spending to keep Hurricane Sandy aid from adding to the national debt. Nelson, No; Rubio, Yes. Key votes ahead: The Senate will take up the Violence Against Women Act In the week of Feb. 4. The House schedule is to be announced. 2013 Thomas Reports Inc. Call: 202-667-9760. QUESTION: How do you feel about women soldiers taking combat assignments? The decision is long overdue; they're as capable of being warriors as men. 13 percent (55 votes) Call me a sexist, but I feel direct combat should be left to men. 39 percent (169 votes) It's a move for equality, but my objection is based on fear for women soldiers taken as prisoners of war. 20 percent (87 votes) Our military should utilize every willing and able soldier at its disposal; so, yes, women should be in combat roles. 28 percent (118 votes) Total votes: 429.

Mutschler, 45, has worked at a library ever since she was 15 and answered a want ad at her local public library in New Jersey. Although at first they said she was too young, she was persistent, insisting that working in a library was her dream job. Persistence paid off and she worked at the library all through high school, gluing pockets onto books, stamping and filing library cards and shelving books. Later, she worked in college libraries, public school libraries and five public libraries. Public libraries are the most challenging and the most rewarding, she said. Every day is different. She added that libraries have changed drastically. Theyre no longer simply places to read and check out books, but theyre social and cultural community centers and librarians run the show. Pre-GED and citizenship classes, computer classes, youth programs, lectures and craft demonstrations as Mutschler said, This is not your grandmothers library anymore.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, FEBRUARY4, 2013 A5 Visit Our New Location Inside Crystal River Mall OVER 60 YEARS SERVING YOUR HEARING NEEDS CHECK QUALIFICATION CALL 352-795-1484 FREE HEARING AIDS Miracle Ear Hearing Aid Center is NOW Offering HEARING AIDS AT NO COST TO FEDERAL WORKERS AND RETIREES!

Duke Energy to close two of NCs oldest power plants Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Duke Energy is closing some of the oldest power plants in North Carolina.The Charlotte Observerreported the Riverbend plant west of Charlotte and Buck plant in Rowan County will close in April. The plants opened in the 1920s and were some of the first to bring electricity to the state. Both plants had been set to be shut down in 2015, but Duke Energy officials said access to newer Progress Energy plants after the utilities merged and a shift to gas power plants because of falling natural gas prices led to the earlier closings. Environmentalists are happy to see the coal plants close, but said they will monitor what the company does with the leftover coal ash to make sure it doesnt seep into drinking water. Were glad to see that the air in this community will be cleaner after April. Well also try to make sure Duke properly retires its ash ponds, which are seepable into our drinking water. We dont see this as an end to our mission by any means, said Sara Behnke, founder of We Love Mountain Island Lake, a community group created last spring in response to the Riverbend plant. The closing of the two plants goes along with Duke Energys plans to shut down more than 3,800 megawatts of older coaland oil-fired generation by the end of 2013. The utility has a longterm plan to retire older, less efficient plants that make up to 6,800 megawatts of electricity. Buck was Duke Energys first large-scale plant. It began operating in 1926. Its first two units retired in 1979, and two more units shut down in 2011. Units 5 and 6 will retire in April. Three gas units were shut down last October. Riverbend was opened in 1929. Three units were shut down in the 1970s, and the remaining four units will be retired in April. Four smaller gas-fired units retired last October. These stations played pivotal roles in the 1920s and 1930s in helping to electrify the industries and homes of the Carolinas, and we honor all those employees who contributed their time and talents over the years to ensure safe, reliable operations, Keith Trent, chief operating officer of Duke Energys regulated utilities, said in a statement. The utility said it would try to find new positions within the company for the 65 people who work at the plants that will be shut down. Feds dont like SC nuke plants fire system delays Associated PressSENECA, S.C. Federal nuclear regulators say Duke Energy could face civil penalties for failing to upgrade its methods on how to fight a fire at the Oconee Nuclear Station.The Greenville Newsreported federal officials have allowed the nuclear power plant to operate for several years under temporary practices to fight blazes. In exchange, Duke Energy agreed to create a pilot program to change how the countrys nuclear reactors protect against fire. Duke Energy told the Nuclear Regulatory Commission it underestimated the complexity of the project. But the commission refused the utilitys request for more time. Duke Energy will request a hearing to further explain the situation. Federal officials said it will likely happen in the next month.

Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan The Afghan peace effort is floundering, fraught with mistrust and confusion among key players even though the hard-line Taliban militants show signs of softening and their reclusive, one-eyed leader made a surprise offer to share power in a post-war Afghanistan. The U.S. and its allies hope the peace process, which began nearly two years ago, will gain traction before most international forces withdraw from the country in fewer than 23 months. But although the Taliban appear more ready to talk than ever before, peace talks remain elusive because of infighting among a rising number of interlocutors all trying to get some kind of negotiations started. Members of the Taliban are in contact with representatives from 30 to 40 different countries, according to senior U.S., Afghan and other officials The Associated Press interviewed in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Moreover, the relationship among the key players the U.S., Afghanistan and Pakistan is marked by distrust that keeps tugging momentum away from the peace process. Many of the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the sensitive contacts with the Taliban. Finding a path to the negotiating table will be a topic when Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistan President Asif Zardari hold a series of meetings beginning Monday with British Prime Minister David Cameron. The meetings in London come amid fresh tensions between Kabul and its western allies. Karzai recently warned the West not to use peace talks as a lever against his government. As well, both Kabul and Washington are frustrated that Pakistan is not monitoring the whereabouts and activities of Taliban prisoners it released in recent months. Miffed by the criticism, Pakistan says it freed the prisoners at the request of the Afghan government and doesnt have the resources to keep tabs on them. No one in either Pakistan or Afghanistan seems to know where the dozens of released prisoners have gone. Last week, the Taliban issued a statement by freed former Taliban Justice Minister Mullah Nooruddin Turabi on behalf of all the prisoners an indication that at least some might have rejoined the ranks of the insurgency. There were no preconditions to their release and we are getting criticism from our own people inside Afghanistan about that and it is valid criticism, said Ismail Qasemyar, a senior member of the Afghan High Peace Council. The peace council, which Karzai set up to carry out peace negotiations, handed Pakistan the list of prisoners, including Turabi, that it wanted freed. They have also asked for the release of the Talibans former second in command, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar. NEDRAPICKLER Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama said Sunday that gays should be allowed in the Boy Scouts and women should be allowed in military combat roles, weighing in on two storied American institutions facing proposals to end long-held exclusions. The presidents comments in a pre-Super Bowl interview on CBS come ahead of this weeks meeting of the Boy Scouts national executive board. A proposal to open up the Scouts membership to gays is expected to be discussed and possibly voted on at the gathering in Texas. The Boy Scouts emphatically reaffirmed the nogays policy just seven months ago, but announced last week they were considering changing the stance. Instead of mandatory exclusion of gays, the different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units would be able to decide for themselves how to address the issue either maintaining the exclusion or opening up their membership. The White House said in a statement last August that Obama opposed the gay ban. Obama, like presidents for the last century, serves as honorary president of the group. The presidents comment Sunday was his first since the group announced it was considering a policy change. My attitude is that gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does in every institution and walk of life, Obama said. The Scouts are a great institution that are promoting young people and exposing them to opportunities and leadership that will serve people for the rest of their lives. And I think nobody should be barred from that. Obama also had previously issued a statement supporting the Pentagons decision last month to open up front-line combat jobs to women, but the interview with CBS Scott Pelley included his first publicly spoken comments on the matter since the announcement. He said women are already serving in combat as a practical matter. When theyre in theater in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, they are vulnerable, he said. They are wounded, and theyve been killed. And they have carried out their jobs with extraordinary patriotism and distinction. The policy change overturns a 1994 rule prohibiting women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units, and is expected to open up more than 230,000 combat positions that have been off limits to women. Obama said he meets extraordinary women in uniform who can do everything that a man can and more. He gave the example of one of his military aides, who he estimated is only about 5 feet tall and 100 pounds. You put a 50-pound pack on her, and she can do things that you or me would keel over doing. And so the truth is that women are serving. They are taking great risks. What we should not do is somehow prevent them from advancing in an institution that we all revere. On the economy, Obama said although more revenue has to be raised to reduce the deficit, it can be done without raising income tax rates again. He said the answer is smart spending cuts, reducing waste in the health care system and closing loopholes and deductions like offshore tax havens that benefit a few high income earners but not most Americans. Theres no doubt we need additional revenue coupled with smart spending reductions in order to bring down our deficit, he said. We can do it in a gradual way so it doesnt have a huge impact. Coming before the Super Bowl, Obama had to expect hed be asked about his recent comment that if he had a son, he would have to think long and hard about letting him play football because of safety concerns. Obama said he feel differently about the NFL, where the players are well-compensated adults who know the risks, but the threat of concussions has to give parents pause about letting youth and children play. I want to make sure we are doing everything we can to make the sport safer, and that means the games probably going to evolve a little bit, Obama said. For those of us who like to see a big hit and enjoy the rock em, sock em elements of the game, were probably going to be occasionally frustrated. But I do think we want to make sure that after people have played the game, that theyre going to be OK, he said. The Obamas were hosting their own Super Bowl party for friends and family at the White House. In honor of the two teams, the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, they were serving Chesapeake crabcakes and San Francisco cioppino stew with sourdough toast. Also on the menu are Clipper City and Anchor Steam beers from the competing cities.

Lurking threat in Sandy-hit homes: Mold Associated PressNEW YORK Esther Tauscher stood outside her Staten Island home, leafing through boxes of family photos that had been steeped in storm water. She paused to point out life events her honeymoon, holding her baby boy in a hospital bed. The photos are just about all she has left. Behind her, the home where she and her family lived for 14 years was being dismantled by a masked volunteer crew that tossed out her possessions and ripped out floorboards and walls. It was Tauschers only option. Her house and nearly everything in it was consumed by mold. If the water didnt get it, the mold got it, she said. Three months after Superstorm Sandy, mold lurks in once-waterlogged buildings, hiding below subflooring, under foundations, and in door and window frames. Sometimes it mottles walls in plain sight. And it can make dwellers sick, another blow to people still recovering from the October storm that sent the Atlantic surging into homes in New Jersey and New York. Mold is flourishing in homes that never completely dried out, where the owners may have waited to make repairs or could not access the house for weeks because of safety concerns. Other flooded homes remain vacant and unheated. But even some who quickly chucked saturated belongings, ripped out soggy wallboards and carpets and scrubbed walls with cleaners and bleach are still finding mold, because the home didnt fully dry, treatment did not work or unscrupulous contractors didnt actually kill it. Mold needs two things. It needs food and it needs moisture, said Paul Lioy, a professor of environmental medicine at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, N.J. So if you have places that arent completely dried out, youre going to have conditions that are ripe for mold growth. Mold can spur coughing, wheezing and other reactions in people who are allergic or sensitive to it or have asthma, and can cause infections in people with chronic lung conditions. In 2004, the Institute of Medicine found sufficient evidence of a link between damp, moldy indoor environments and upper respiratory tract symptoms, coughing and wheezing in healthy people, and asthma symptoms in asthmatics. If mold is treated safely, there should be few longterm health effects, said Dr. Kevin ChathamStephens, a pediatrician and environmental health fellow at Mount Sinai Medical Center. But doing it yourself could make things worse. Chatham-Stephens said bleach and other chemicals used to clean mold can also cause respiratory irritation. Mold remediation can cost as much as $15,000 and require people to leave their homes for days. It is not directly covered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency or New York Citys Rapid Repair program, which provides emergency repairs to residents affected by the storm. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Thursday announced a $15 million public-private partnership to remove mold in about 2,000 city homes. The money was raised privately, and the program will be run by a community development nonprofit. It will find homeowners through referrals, with the neediest families receiving priority. The city is also holding training sessions on how to deal with mold in the home. The program was launched by the Mayors Fund to Advance New York City, the Red Cross and the Robin Hood Foundation. Joseph McKellar, executive director of Queens Congregations United for Action, said that the citys program is a good first step, but that 2,000 homes is really only a start. McKellar and other labor, faith and community leaders formed Back Home, Back to Work, an organization that wants to use union members to clean out mold-infested homes in New York. The group is calling for part of the $50.5 billion emergency aid package passed by Congress to be used for mold remediation. Sen. Charles Schumer said he would like to see federal money allocated to fight mold. New Jersey is looking at opportunities for a similar program, said Donna Leusner, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Department of Health. The state is waiting to see if grants from the aid package can be used to help residents fight mold. The Robin Hood Foundation also made grants to programs in New Jersey that provide free mold remediation to Sandy victims. Lioy worries the mold problem will only get worse in the spring and summer, when consistently warm temperatures will allow mold to flourish. Even warm days like Wednesday and Thursday, when temperatures reached into the 50s and 60s, can accelerate mold growth. Richard Schielke scrubbed the salt and mud off his hardwood floors after the storm but discovered weeks later that mold lurked under the floor. He hired a crew from Flag Enterprises, a Lindenhurst, N.Y., restoration services company. Workers scoured his moldy floor and walls and set up large air filters that hummed throughout his home. There was no playbook saying, If this happens, this is what you should do, Schielke, of Massapequa, N.Y., said. Alyssa Durnien, of Keansburg, N.J., came back to her damaged house about 15 days after the storm and sprayed a mildew product on the wood and underbelly of her home, which had mold damage. Months later, the mold is back. Durnien set up dehumidifiers throughout the house and plans to hire a professional. I can tell you, she said, theres still mold there. Associated PressWhen red knots descend on the beaches of Delaware Bay this spring famished from their marathon flight toward the Canadian Arctic from the tip of South America, the rosy-breasted shorebirds may find slim pickings instead of the feast of horseshoe crab eggs they count on to fuel the rest of their migration. Superstorm Sandy scrubbed away almost all the sand the crabs need to spawn upon. Restoring it in time is a top priority of wildlife groups beginning to repair Sandys massive damage to dunes, beaches and salt marshes along the Eastern Seaboard that support a diverse population of birds, fish, marine organisms and other wildlife. A recent report by the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation predicts that the storm which across the region washed away sand and vegetation that many species spawn in or call home, or polluted habitats with oil, sewage and other contaminants is almost certain to have lasting effects on the recovery of the red knot. The Delaware Bay could be called the Serengeti of the mid-Atlantic for the staggering numbers of birds there, said Eric Stiles, executive director of New Jersey Audubon. In addition to providing a wintering area for waterfowl that breed in the Great Plains of the United States and Canada, the estuary also provides a winter range for large numbers of raptors, including bald eagles. When I visited as a kid in the s, the beaches were green with horseshoe crab eggs, Stiles said. When the birds took to flight, it looked like the whole beach was rising up en masse. Just a beautiful spectacle. But at a popular New Jersey Audubon winter workshop on raptors of the bay, a time when participants usually see dozens of eagles and other birds of prey, this year they only saw one eagle, one northern harrier, and one red-tailed hawk in the day outing, Stiles said. The prey base has disappeared. The rodents the raptors feed on will rebound quickly. But eelgrass beds that provide the primary food source for Atlantic brant and other waterfowl, as well as spawning areas for fish, will need restoration work where Sandy has buried the eelgrass under a foot of sand and sediment. Other species identified in the Manomet Center report as priority candidates for habitat restoration include the roseate tern, piping plover, tricolored heron and least bittern. It found more than 70 sites from Massachusetts to Virginia that need restoration work, including beach replenishment, rebuilding of nesting islands and water control structures in managed wetlands. Beach replenishment involves replacing land lost to storm erosion with sand pumped from offshore. The projects, with an estimated price tag of $48.7 million, would not only repair late Octobers damage from Sandy, but also help coastal areas withstand major storms in the future. Some of the funding will come from the $50.5 billion emergency relief package signed by President Barack Obama on Tuesday; other money will come from state budgets or nonprofit organizations. The report by the Manomet Center, based in Plymouth, Mass., recommends a $10 million project by the Army Corps of Engineers and other partners to repair the beaches of Delaware Bay, where the red knots population has dropped from about 100,000 in the 1980s to about 30,000 now because of overharvesting of horseshoe crabs for fertilizer and fishing bait. These birds fly nonstop for thousands of miles from the tip of South America, Stiles said. They land on Delaware Bay exhausted and emaciated, and then they double their body weight in 7 to 10 days foraging on horseshoe crab eggs before flying nonstop to the Arctic. But the storms sculpting work also created new habitat for species such as the threatened piping plover, a compact, pale shorebird with coloring that makes it all but vanish against the open sand flats where it nests. The American Littoral Societys postSandy surveys found 67 percent of MidAtlantic beach areas had moderate to high damage to bird and marine life habitats, including vital marshes. These marshes are protein factories, providing rodents, crabs and other species in the food chain, said Tim Dillingham, the societys executive director. The storm also washed raw sewage, oil and other pollutants into marshes, bays and estuaries, but the long-term impact isnt yet known, Dillingham said. Scott Johnston, of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services division of migratory birds, said that damage occurred from North Carolina to Cape Cod, but that the bulk of it was in New Jersey, Delaware Bay and Long Island Sound. As the rebuilding begins, he said, the focus should be to aim for the natural resiliency provided by natural dune systems and marshes. Dillingham and other biologists said it would be more beneficial to create natural dune systems than to build bulkheads and seawalls to protect against future storm surges. An extensive dune system has the effect of protecting the homes and businesses while providing real and meaningful habitat, Dillingham said. If the taxpayers are paying for this, they deserve more than a massive Berlin Wall. A8MONDAY, FEBRUARY4, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION Get Published! Win Prizes! Receive Awards!

Unions made life better for peopleThis letter is a reply to a letter written by Michael Pitts titled Unions hurt America. Mr. Pitts said the unions are a protection and extortion racket. He gives no explanation or details of how this is so. He goes on to say unions have become the ruination of America within the work-and-wage system. He then talks about entitlements. Mr. Pitts being a union employee never had to apply for entitlements, because he enjoyed union wages and benefits, especially as a senior shop steward. One of the largest corporations in the world, which is non-union and has three locations in Citrus County, hires their employees part-time and below poverty level wages. This is where entitlements come in. Because these employees are non-union and working below poverty level wages, many of them can receive food stamps, lowincome housing and Medicaid. I am sure as a union member and senior shop steward, Mr. Pitts never had to worry about those entitlements. While we are on entitlements, lets talk about some large entitlements. Exxon Mobile made $19 billion in 2009, paid no federal tax and received $156 million in rebate from IRS. Bank of America received $1.9 billion from the IRS last year, although it made $4.4 billion in profits and received a bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department of nearly $1 trillion. There are many more on that list who receive large entitlements. Now, I want to list briefly a few things unions have done for America. Unions gave us weekends off; this was in the fair labor standards in 1937 after massive strikes so a worker would have some leisure time. Unions gave workers fair wages and income equality. When the worker gets a low wage, he or she is dependent on the taxpayers for entitlements such as food stamps, Medicaid and in some cases lowincome housing. Unions also were a big help in ending child labor in the early 19th century and lets not forget the unions won widespread employer-based health coverage.Chuck Weiler Crystal RiverServe constituents, not own interestsIn a recent Sound Off someone was concerned U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent did not vote for the Sandy Storm aid. I decided to check and see what our Florida senators did. As expected Sen. Nelson voted for the bill while Sen. Rubio voted against it. It is interesting this was not an issue when the federal government was rebuilding a city below sea level, towns destroyed by tornados, spent millions of dollars fighting forest fires or the fortunes Florida received for its many hurricanes including Andrew. These two Florida congressmen are members of the hijacked Tea Party. That is the party that started out seeking efficient and honest government only to be taken over by radicals (who) in essence believe in no government unless it benefits the special interests that supports their agenda. Sen. Rubio has voted no on just about everything regardless of a legitimate need or not. Rep. Nugents voting record indicates his brain was replaced by a robot that only responds to his backers demands. One can only wonder how the northeast Congress members will respond when Florida comes knocking for help after the next hurricane. Sadly, I doubt either of these bought and paid for politicians will even try to help their state unless they are directed to do so by their handlers. This country is already too divided. Special interests have turned voters into hate groups that refuse to see or attempt to see both sides of an issue. Now, we have our congressional representatives creating another issue which is not based on party line but rather a regional challenge. Rubio and Nugent have sworn oaths to a millionaire and a fringe political group, which they clearly prize over the oath to our Constitution. It is time for the voters to elect people (who) represent all of the citizens of this country and take direction from our constitution and its citizens not millionaires, special interests or extremist organizations.Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills Dont use reservesJust what is going on? When the problem with Duke Energy was realized, the county said they were going to pursue a hiring freeze. In the past three weeks, five I repeat five jobs have been posted on its website. Today, I read the freeze on vehicles has melted and now Geoff Greene has hired an expert to the tune of $36,000 so far. If he and his staff dont have the expertise to do the job, maybe it should be outsourced. Lastly, use of reserves to cover your expenses is not a balanced budget. Stop raiding the reserves, do your job within the monetary means you have and serve the people, not your egos.No Parkway 2I read the article on Stay the course on Keep working on Suncoast Parkway 2. I wanted to say I agree its a worthwhile project. I do hope, however, they dont plan on extending the walking/biking trail. Every time I go to Tampa on that road, I notice theres literally nobody between here and Spring Hill using the trail, which makes me think they could drive the cost of the project down if indeed they are considering extending that. We dont need it up here.Epidemic problemIve noticed lately the litter problem in Citrus County seems to be becoming epidemic. Why is it we never see anybodys name in the paper for being fined for littering? Are we catching any of these people? It seems like theres a bunch of new signs $500 for littering and so on, but nobodys paying attention to them, obviously.Free books This is for the person who wrote in to the Sound Off about getting books at yard sales for a decent price. If youd like some books and want to take a look at them, please give me a call at 352-3445675. I have several in my garage and they wont cost you that much. As a matter of fact, I can give them to you for free if youre interested. So please give me a call. Dont spend them at yard sales. Whats in a name?This is to inform tourists and anyone else who might not know, in spite of the Chronicles insistence on calling the hippopotamus at the Homosassa attraction Lu, its true name is Lucifer, not Lu.Editors note: Yes, Lus given name is Lucifer; however, park employees prefer the more affectionate Lu for their much-celebrated resident.Respect the lawI saw where the guy wrote a letter to the editor on the airboat muffler laws. Not only the muffler laws, but what about when a dozen of them go by a guy trying to fish within 50 feet, 25 feet, full blast, and wont even look at you because theyre afraid you might give the one-finger hello or a shrug or whats up? How about some respect out there? You guys might not be so hated if you were a little more respectful around people. Call for gridlockI just read in the paper Jan. 26 about the traffic light needed on (State Road) 44 and Meadowcrest Boulevard. My thought is to put up four stop signs in each direction, two warning the traffic theyre coming on to stop signs, to stop ahead. And four in each direction, thats eight total. And the other direction you have one thats been up there for a while. Then you can have the cars stop in 60 to 90 days worth and then take the two stop signs down. A solution to the problem.Medicare scamIf you get a phone call from someone claiming theyre calling you fromOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, FEBRUARY4, 2013 A9 or Bifocals $ 12 9 Eyecare Express 20/20 Same Day Service Even Bifocals & Safety Glasses *CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS APPLY.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2013 Thank you for caringTo the citizens of Citrus County, Here it is January, and I look back on the last two months and realize again how much the people of this county care about children. More than 1,900 children and teens received blankets or jackets or school supplies and clothing and books and some toys to make their lives much better. Caseworkers expressed their thanks for your seeing to it that their charges had the things they needed. Children in foster care and children in shelters and children living with grandparents were all given gifts. Parents expressed their thanks in letters about the circumstances of this year that left the family struggling. Teachers tell me they see the children return to school excited to have a new outfit and toys; now certain Santa is real. Those teachers express relief to know the children now have a warm coat on cold days and blankets to keep away the cold of poorly heated homes. It is with a grateful heart I thank all of you individual citizens; the Marines from Toys for Tots; the large corporate sponsors like Progress Energy; and small businesses with only a few employees; churches, homeowners associations, civic clubs and business associations. I also thank the many workers who wrapped, sorted and delivered the gifts. It is a team effort we accomplish this project togetherGinger West Family Resource Center Hernando The usual soul searching that comes with an election loss has the Republican Party contemplating, yet again, how to reach out to minorities. Heres a suggestion: Stop with the insults that form a structural part of the Statement of Faith for todays GOP A recent Washington Postpoll asked Republicans why African-Americans reliably vote Democratic. Three in five said the reason is welfare and the desire to get something for nothing. Lump this with Mitt Romneys insulting comments on the percent who will never take personal responsibility and care for their own lives and those minorities who want free gifts from government, and you have a problem. Indeed, listen any day to the likes of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh and the narrative is minorities vote Democratic because they are lazy and reliant on government. This smacks of bigotry. The good news for Republicans is the staggering loss among minorities in 2012 can be easily fixed, so long as Republicans stop the rhetorical march toward making the national party not unlike the Mississippi Republican party. And for inspiration, the Republicans need look no further than a figure they pretty much place in a corner with a dunce hat these days: George W. Bush. Though most would agree the Bush presidency was mediocre, there is no denying he reached out to minorities, in particular Latinos. He got more than 40 percent of the Latino vote in 2004. At this point, getting 40 percent of the Latino vote is pretty much all Republicans need to become a viable national party again. And it is not difficult to do. Though many Latinos favor government action on issues such as health care, education, a living wage and retirement security (which lead them to Democrats), Latinos are usually culturally conservative. Most are Roman Catholic and more conservative than their Anglo American Catholic brethren on social issues. And growing numbers of Latinos in particular Puerto Ricans are now Pentecostal. Latinos are by and large the classic immigrants who should make us all proud to be Americans: They arrive here to work hard, play by the rules and become good Americans. That is what my family did in 1960, when they arrived as Cuban exiles fleeing Castros regime. The story of the Mexican immigrant looking for economic opportunity, the Venezuelan immigrant fleeing the shackles of Hugo Chavez or the Cuban exile arriving on a raft is no less American. Bush appealed to Latinos on three fronts. First, he appealed to their sense of compassion and community by supporting sensible immigration reform and talking about armies of compassion through his charitable choice programs. Second, he was conservative on social issues. Third, and most important and missing from todays Republican vision, he respected Latinos not as some predictable voting bloc, but as Americans whose stories are American stories. By giving in to those who peddle ridiculous fantasies about Latino immigrants jumping the border and buying a Rolls Royce and mansion in the Hamptons on food stamps and welfare, Republicans alienate a potential constituency. And not only do they alienate Latinos, they insult them. One of the many reasons, for example, African-Americans were fired up and ready to go on Election Day was because of the numerous, almost humiliating, insults Republicans aimed at Barack Obama. Good faith debate and dialogue degenerated into insults about the president wanting to destroy and enslave our country, shred the Bill of Rights and crush our liberties. When the sophomoric Congressman Joseph Wilson yelled you lie! to the president during the State of the Union, when mainstream Republicans entertained the idea Obama is an illegal alien from Kenya, when the first lady is called a racist and when racial ambulance chasers like Donald Trump are given comfort in todays GOP, Republicans inflame black voters. Soon, non-racial issues such as health care reform (which Limbaugh called reparations for African-Americans) became colored in race. Indeed, many Republicans have refused to acknowledge what Obama means not only to African-Americans, but to all Americans. Like his politics or not, there is no denying the emotional power of someone who marched in Selma voting for him, or a young AfricanAmerican whose greatgrandparents were slaves voting for him. For many AfricanAmericans, Election Day 2008 was a homecoming. Refusal to recognize this has nothing to do with good-faith disagreements over tax or health care policy. Its blind stubbornness. There is no mandate to support or even like Obama, but Republicans should at least acknowledge what he means to many Americans. Therefore, Republicans do not have too long of a journey to becoming viable again. However, to do this, they must, first and foremost, stop with the insults.Luis Viera is an attorney who practices in the Tampa Bay area. He can be contacted at LViera@ogdensullivan.com.

Those are just two of the predicaments facing Citrus County School Board members as they plan for the 2013-14 budget. The school board is facing a $3.7 million deficit, based on a drop in student enrollment, impacts of the reduced Progress Energy Florida tax payment and an expected increase in property insurance. Board members expect to make up $1.7 million of the deficit from the districts reserve funds. They hope to make up the rest by implementing cuts that have the least impact on students. Dipping into reserves is not a favorable, nor a sustainable solution. Cutting programs, while an easy way out, is abhorrent and goes against the entire philosophy of educating our young. Many students in our school system do not have the advantages students from wealthy or middle-class families do. Students whose parents are professionals such as doctors, lawyers, administrators, teachers or business owners receive exposure to the myriad professional possibilities available to them. Programs such as the Marine Science Station, Business Academy, International Baccalaureate, Art Academy and Health Academy provide exposure to students who might not otherwise explore these opportunities. The school board has rejected cutting programs like the Marine Science Station in the past and we would encourage them to do so in the future. We would much rather have students walking a mile or two to school than be told you cannot be a marine biologist. Programs such as these and other extracurricular activities like sports are oftentimes the only thing keeping students engaged and attending schools. They open avenues to the underprivileged and allow others to opportunities to realize their dreams. We urge school board members to maintain their focus on cuts with the least impact on students. THE ISSUE:School board looks to cut $2 million from 2013-14 budget.OUR OPINION:Look at cuts with minimal student impact.

CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Luis VieraFLORIDA VOICES GOP, stop insulting minorities Credit or cashThis is in response to the business owners question about paying exorbitant charges for taking credit cards. Well, theyve been taking credit cards and debit cards for years and Im sure its built into the cost of doing business somewhere. The first business that says to me, You will pay a surcharge, I walk out the door and they keep their product. I can go online and buy it and pay no state tax also. I dont need them. Theyre going to have to compete. If everyone did this, we wouldnt see this. What grumpy people doWhen I saw the article on Toasting manatees, I admit I did a double-take but quickly realized what they were talking about. The caller in the Sound Off was trying to inject some humor, and grumpy people did what grumpy people do they called in unnecessary, caustic remarks about the person instead of just smiling. Thanks for the smile.Years of miseryI think the countys making a big mistake going through with this lawsuit against Progress Energy. Remember all the millions wasted over Citrus Memorial and how the lawyers tied it up for three years or whatever it was. Progress Energy will tie you up for 10 years and it will cost you a fortune. And if you cant see that coming, youre blind.Show considerationIt is difficult for people using a walker to get in and out of stores where there are manual doors. Even someone pushing an individual in a wheelchair finds it a real chore pushing the wheelchair and at the same time opening or closing a door. You would be amazed at the lack of consideration on the part of those nearby at offering their help.Watering awayI will not skip watering my lawn until they decide not to give away 28 million gallons of water a year.Observe traffic lawsI know this has been repeated many times, but it bears repeating again. When making a righthand turn when theres a red light, the law reads that you have your right turn signal on, come to a full and complete stop, and proceed with caution after you look both ways. To do anything else causes accidents, is against the law, and even if you see police not following the law, does not mean you should not do it. Everybody should follow the law. Please do that. Theres been close accidents, close calls and a lot of accidents in Citrus County because you dont follow the law. A red light means you have to stop, even if youre turning right. You have to follow the law. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579

Thanks for helping This is a very special thank you for the nursing assistant (who) gave me a ride home. I took a walk in the woods the other day and I thought if I stayed on a straight trail, it would be no problem to turn around and go back. Well, I was wrong. I veered off in many different directions and did several circles and finally ended up about three miles from my house. I ran into a nice lady (who) offered me and my giant yellow dog a ride home and it was much appreciated. I got home in time to get in my car and get my daughter from work all the way in Crystal River. Thank you again and God bless you. I will keep you in my prayers. Thank you much.Favors Suncoast 2Congratulations, Citrus County. Finally you realize the Parkway 2 will bring you more people to reside here, to buy land, to build homes, vote and pay taxes. Some will even use Parkway 2 to go back and forth to their places of employment, thus using Citrus County as their permanent address. There will also be those who use Parkway 2 as a means of traveling north and south, who have no intentions of stopping here, which will relieve the traffic on U.S. 19. Therefore, state funds will be saved in purchasing rights of way in the widening of U.S. 19 all the way through all the counties from Tampa to Dunnellon. Yes, the future of Citrus County will be much brighter when this highway is completed.

I wonder if you would print anything positive. For a long time this county has flourished. Most people who tried prospered. Taxes seemed excessive, but people had the money. Well, times have changed. Most people are struggling and cant make ends meet. But no one in government wants to cut back like we, the people, have had to do. The people voted Scott Adams in because they knew he wasnt afraid to point the finger at the problems. You cant clean the pot without stirring it. So more power to Scott Adams.Stepping on toesTheres nothing wrong with Scott Adams stepping on the toes of some people (who) just have been in there doing what they want to do, never asking any citizen what they want done. Just like the way they put the 6-cent gas tax on ... they didnt take it off. Keep on, Scott. No solutions offered This is to the guy calling in about Scott Adams. I have watched Mr. Adams on TV and he has yet to bring up a solution. He wants to cut money to education, yet has no answers about how to make it better.Working for peopleIt is quite obvious the Chronicle does not like Scott Adams. Im just calling in to say I am proud to have voted for this man and it is a pleasure to see someone standing up to the self-serving commissioners with whom he serves. If you dont like what hes doing, just, Im sorry, stand back and watch him work. He may get something done in the peoples best interests. Hot Corner:DUKE ENERGY Greedy CitrusThis is a comment about the taxes not being paid by Duke. Wonder what all the greedy people in Citrus County is going to do when they build a new plant in Levy County and move the whole electrical service to Levy County. Im sure Levy County will be glad to have Duke as a new customer. Theyre not quite as greedy as Citrus County. So good luck to Duke. Im sure theyre going to be moving in the future not tomorrow, but it will happen. Lien for DukeSeems to me the tax collector could put a lien on Dukes property just as they do on us when we dont pay our taxes.Fuzzy mathI see where (Duke) Progress Energy is trying to stiff the county school board out of $35 million. The ladies of the schools PTAs are going to need to run a lot of baked good sales, flea markets and spaghetti dinners to make up that shortfall. SoundOFF

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressSTEPHENVILLE, Texas A 25-year-old Iraq war veteran charged with murdering former Navy SEAL and American Sniper author Chris Kyle and his friend turned a gun onto the pair while they were at a Texas shooting range, authorities said Sunday. Eddie Ray Routh of Lancaster was arraigned early Sunday in the deaths of Kyle, 38, and Chad Littlefield, 35, at a shooting range at Rough Creek Lodge, about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth. He was being held on a charge of capital murder and two charges of murder. Capt. Jason Upshaw with the Erath County Sheriffs Office said Routh used a semi-automatic handgun, which authorities later found at his home. Upshaw said ballistics tests werent complete Sunday, but authorities believe it was the gun used in the shootings. Upshaw declined to give any more details about the gun. Routh has not made any comments indicating what his motive may have been, Upshaw said. Sheriff Tommy Bryant said Routh was unemployed and may have been suffering from some type of mental illness from being in the military himself. The U.S. military confirmed Sunday that Routh was a corporal in the Marines, serving in active duty from 2006 to 2010. He was deployed to Iraq in 2007 and Haiti in 2010. His current duty status is listed as reserve. Travis Cox, the director of a nonprofit Kyle helped found, told the Associated Press on Sunday that Kyle and Littlefield had taken Routh to the range. Littlefield was Kyles neighbor and workout buddy, Cox said. What I know is Chris and a gentleman great guy, I knew him well, Chad Littlefield took a veteran out shooting who was struggling with PTSD to try to assist him, try to help him, try to, you know, give him a helping hand and he turned the gun on both of them, killing them, Cox said.

Authorities said they still have an open line of communication with an Alabama man accused of abducting a 5-year-old child and holding him hostage in a bunker since Tuesday, Jan. 29. Associated PressMIDLAND CITY, Ala. As an Alabama standoff and hostage drama marked a sixth day Sunday, more details emerged about the suspect at the center, with neighbors and officials painting a picture of an isolated man estranged from his family. Authorities say Jim Lee Dykes, 65 a decorated Vietnam-era veteran known as Jimmy to neighbors gunned down a school bus driver and abducted a 5-year-old boy from the bus, taking him to an underground bunker on his rural property. The driver, 66-year-old Charles Albert Poland Jr., was buried Sunday. Dykes, described as a loner who railed against the government, lives up a dirt road outside this tiny hamlet north of Dothan in the southeastern corner of the state. His home is just off the main road north to the state capital of Montgomery, about 80 miles away. The FBI said in a statement Sunday that authorities continue to have an open line of communication with Dykes. The little boy requested Cheez-Its and a red Hot Wheels car, both of which were delivered to the bunker, a separate statement said. Authorities had said they also were delivering medicine and other comfort items, and that Dykes was making the child as comfortable as possible. In the nearby community of Ozark on Sunday, more than 500 people filed into the Civic Center to pay a final tribute to Poland, who was being hailed as a hero for protecting the other children on the school bus before he was shot Tuesday. Poland is now an angel who is watching over the little boy, said Dale County School Superintendent Donny Bynum, who read letters w ritten by three students who had ridden on Polands bus. You didntdeserve to die but you died knowing you kept everyone safe, one child wrote. Dykes grew up in the Dothan area. Mel Adams, a Midland City Council member who owns the lot where reporters are gathered, said he has known Dykes since they were ages 3 and 4. He said Dykes has a sister and a brother, but that he is estranged from his family. Adams said he didnt know what caused the falling-out, but said he knew Dykes had told part of his family to go to hell. Midland City Mayor Virgil Skipper said Dykes sister is in a nursing home. Adams said law enforcement officers have talked to Dykes family members and advised them not to speak with reporters. Government records and interviews with neighbors indicate Dykes joined the Navy in Midland City, serving on active duty from 1964 to 1969. His record shows several awards, including the Vietnam Service Medal and the Good Conduct Medal. Dykes was trained in aviation maintenance and at one point was based in Japan. It was unclear if he saw combat in Vietnam. At some point after his time in the Navy, Dykes lived in Florida, where he worked as a surveyor and a long-haul truck driver. Its unclear how long he stayed there. He had some scrapes with the law in Florida, including a 1995 arrest for improper exhibition of a weapon. The misdemeanor was dismissed. He also was arrested for marijuana possession in 2000. He returned to Alabama about two years ago. Neighbors described Dykes as a man who once beat a dog to death with a lead pipe, threatened to shoot children for setting foot on his property, and patrolled his yard at night with a flashlight and a firearm. Michael Creel said Dykes had an adult daughter, but the two lost touch years ago. Details emerge about man at center of standoff Vietnam veteran Jim Lee Dykes, 65, described as a loner Friends and family gather Sunday to pay respects for Charles Chuck Poland at the Ozark Civic Center in Ozark, Ala.

Baltimores standout middle linebacker began his final night on the football field with a motivational speech to his teammates. He ended it looking upward into a shower of silver streamers and purple confetti after the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 Sunday night to win the Super Bowl. Standing tall in the middle of a defense that survived a frenzied comeback by Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers, Lewis put a lovely bow on his 17th NFL season by earning his second Super Bowl ring 12 years after the first. When Lewis first led Baltimore to Super Bowl glory, he was a 25-year-old at the height of his game. A terror in the middle of the best defense in the league, Lewis was voted MVP after the Ravens beat the New York Giants 34-7 to earn their first title. On Sunday night, Lewis and his defense played a supporting role to Joe Flacco and the offense. The 37-year-old Lewis had only two solo tackles through the first three quarters and sometimes struggled to cover receivers venturing into his area.

Dukes Haley Peters watches the play. Duke won 84-63. Associated PressSouth Floridas Jawanza Poland scores Sunday during the first half against Connecticut in Storrs, Conn. Associated PressSTORRS, Conn. Shabazz Napier scored 24 points, and hit three 3-pointers in overtime, leading Connecticut to a 69-64 win over South Florida. Ryan Boatright added 17 points for the Huskies (15-5, 5-3 Big East) who overcame a 12-point halftime deficit to win their third consecutive game. Toarlyn Fitzpatrick scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for South Florida (10-11, 1-8), which dropped its fourth straight. South Florida held the Huskies to just five first-half field goals and led 27-15 at the half. But the Huskies matched their first-half output 3 1/2 minutes into the second half, going on a 15-2 run after intermission to take the lead. Napier missed a long 3-pointer that would have won the game in regulation, but responded with two straight to open the extra period.No. 12 Louisville 70, No. 25 Marquette 51LOUISVILLE, Ky. Russ Smith scored 18 points, Peyton Siva added 14 and No. 12 Louisville shot 52 percent to run away from No. 25 Marquette 70-51. The lopsided outcome was somewhat surprising considering what was at stake for both teams in the Big East. Marquette had an opportunity to take a one-game lead on Syracuse, but the Golden Eagles were left settling for a firstplace tie with the Orange. The Cardinals (18-4, 6-3), meanwhile, moved a half-game closer to both schools with their second straight win, remaining in a four-way tie for third. The Cardinals finished 27 of 52 from the field after an 0-for8 start while holding the Golden Eagles (15-5, 6-2) to 36 percent shooting (19 of 53). They also outrebounded Marquette 38-26. Gorgui Dieng added eight points and eight rebounds for Louisville.

Hollins finished with 17 points to help the Gophers (17-5, 54 Big Ten) survive a rough second half and escape the scrappy Hawkeyes (14-8, 3-6). With Minnesota trailing 59-57, the 6-foot-4 Hollins came off a screen to get open in the corner on an inbounds play and made the shot over 6-foot-1 Mike Gesell. Hollins then hounded Gesell in the corner on the other end to force the ball out of bounds. Andre Hollins, who had 15 points, made two free throws to stretch the lead to three, and Gesells tying attempt rolled off the front rim. Gesell finished with 11 points, and Aaron White and Zach McCabe each had 10 for the Hawkeyes.

Miamis Norris Cole scored a layup but DeRozan answered with a driving dunk, and Miami called time while up 86-83 with 4:09 left. Bosh made one of two from the line, then followed with a 3 as the Heat took a 90-83 lead with 2:34 to go.Lakers 98, Pistons 97AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Pau Gasol had 23 points and 10 rebounds and was the last line of defense for Los Angeles, contesting Detroits last-second alley-oop attempt and helping the Lakers hold on for a 98-97 victory over the Pistons. Los Angeles blew an 18-point third-quarter lead but went back ahead for good on Kobe Bryants driving three-point play with 1:09 remaining. That gave the Lakers a 9895 lead, and they held on despite missing four free throws in the final 16.8 seconds. The normally reliable Steve Nash missed two with 2.7 seconds left, giving Detroit one more chance. Inbounding from midcourt with 1.2 seconds to play, the Pistons tried a lob to rookie big man Andre Drummond, but with Gasol contesting the play, Drummond couldnt convert his one-handed dunk attempt.Celtics 106, Clippers 104BOSTON Paul Pierce scored 22 points and the Boston Celtics held off a late comeback to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 106-104 and improve to 4-0 since losing Rajon Rondo for the season. The Clippers had cut a five-point deficit to 103-101 on a 3-pointer by Eric Bledsoe with 56 seconds remaining. But Avery Bradley drew an offensive foul on Los Angeles Jamal Crawford with 26 seconds to go, and Pierce held on to the ball before making a 3-pointer with 2.5 second left to clinch the win. The teams played without the point guards voted starters in the All-Star game in Houston on Feb. 17 the Clippers Chris Paul and Rondo.

Panthers edge Sabres 4-3 Associated PressBUFFALO, N.Y. Defenseman Brian Campbell scored on the power play with 10:33 remaining to cap Floridas threegoal rally and the Panthers beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-3. Peter Mueller, George Parros and Shawn Matthias also scored for the Panthers, who won their first road game of the season and snapped a seven-game road winless drought (0-5-2) dating to last season. Florida rallied from a 3-1 deficit to win two straight since enduring a five-game skid. Thomas Vanek and Cody Hodgson had a goal and assist each, and Alexander Sulzer also scored for Buffalo, which dropped to 1-5-1 since opening the season with two wins. The Panthers are finally starting to find their offense, combining for 10 goals in two games after managing just five in their previous five.Devils 2, Islanders 0UNIONDALE, N.Y. Johan Hedberg made 22 saves for his 22nd career shutout and the New Jersey Devils beat the New York Islanders 2-0. Steve Bernier scored for New Jersey in the third period and David Clarkson added an empty-netter to help the Devils snap a fourgame winless streak (0-1-3). While neither the Islanders nor Devils was able to break through in the opening 55 minutes, both teams alternated periods in which they controlled play. New York outshot the Devils 10-7 in a high-tempo first period, while New Jersey implemented its trademark defensive system in the second. Hedbergs biggest save came 8:08 into the third period when he stoned New York right wing Michael Grabner on a short-handed breakaway with the game scoreless.Penguins 6, Capitals 3WASHINGTON Chris Kunitz scored a hat trick in the Pittsburgh Penguins Super Bowl Sunday visit to the nations capital, leading a 6-3 win over the Washington Capitals that reflected both teams fortunes so far in the lockout-shortened season. Kris Letang, Paul Martin and Matt Cooke also scored, Sidney Crosby had three assists, and Tomas Vokoun made 21 saves against his former team for the Penguins, who have won three straight and four of five to lead the Atlantic Division. Mike Green, John Carlson and Mike Ribeiro scored for the Capitals and Carlsons goal was an accident that took a weird carom off a stanchion along the glass.Canadiens 2, Senators 1MONTREAL David Desharnais and Erik Cole scored first-period goals and the Montreal Canadiens held on for a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators. The win completed a sweep of weekend matinees at home for Montreal (6-2-0) after a 6-1 win Saturday over the Buffalo Sabres. The Canadiens have won five straight at home after dropping their home opener to Toronto on Jan. 19. Jakob Silfverberg scored for Ottawa (5-3-1), which was coming off a 1-0 loss at Carolina on Friday night. Senators goalie Craig Anderson has not conceded a goal after the first period in eight games this season. Max Pacioretty was back on the ice only eight days after having his appendix removed and got an assist on his first shift. Mickelson claims Phoenix Open title Associated PressSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Phil Mickelson completed a wire-to-wire victory in the Phoenix Open, again flirting with history in a dominating run at TPC Scottsdale. Mickelson shot a 4-under 67 on Sunday to finish at 28-under 256, two strokes off the PGA Tour record of 254 set by Tommy Armour III in the 2003 Texas Open. Its an important one for me, because its been a while since I won, been a while since Ive been in contention, Mickelson said. I was certainly nervous heading into today. I think the thing Im most excited about was the way I was able to regain control of my thoughts after a few shots early on that I didnt care for. Mickelson missed a chance for a 59 in the first round when his 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole caught the right edge of the cup, curled 180 degrees and stayed out. He settled for a 60 and followed with rounds of 65 and 64 to take a six-stroke lead into the final round. Mickelson won after struggling the last two weeks in his season-opening events tying for 37th at La Quinta and 51st at Torrey Pines and creating some headlines by talking about tax increases. He now heads to Pebble Beach for his title defense. I think that sets up the tone for the rest of the year, because I really started to play well, Mickelson said. But for me, the rest of the year took a turn on Tuesday when I got my new driver. It just changed my whole deal. Brandt Snedeker finished second, four strokes back after a 65. Sometimes you have to tip your hat and say, Phil played unbelievable and deserved to win, Snedeker said. Thats kind of what this week was all about. Mickelson took a three-stroke lead to the 17th tee, and nearly drove into the left-side water on the drivable par 4, his ball stopping a yard short of the hazard. He hit his 25-yard second shot 15 feet past the hole and made the birdie putt. Mickelson parred the par-4 18th after another drive to the left, one that easily cleared the water he hit into Friday en route to a double bogey, and Snedeker closed with a bogey. Mickelson had his third wire-to-wire victory and first since the 2006 BellSouth Classic a 13-stroke blowout the week before the second of his three Masters victories. He pushed his victory total to 41, winning for the first time since 51 weeks ago at Pebble Beach. Making his 24th appearance in the event that he also won in 1996 and 2005, Mickelson tied the tournament scoring record set by Mark Calcavecchia in 2001, and joined Calcavecchia, Arnold Palmer and Gene Littler as the only three-time winners. With six victories in Arizona, Mickelson also matched Johnny Millers tour record. Mickelson bogeyed the par-4 second and birdied the two frontnine par 3s, pulling off his best shot of the day on No. 7. After Snedeker, four strokes back after a birdie on No. 6, hit within 10 feet of the back-left pin to set up a birdie, Mickelsons tee shot leaked right and stopped an inch from the back fringe, leaving him 55 feet with a 20-foot swath of fringe between his ball and the hole. Mickelson decided to putt through the fringe rather than chip over it and had caddie Jim Mackay remove the flagstick. The 42-year-old former Arizona State star hit it perfectly, with the ball avoiding the rough, rolling back onto the green and racing into the cup.Dubai Desert ClassicDUBAI, United Arab Emirates Stephen Gallacher made an eagle on the 16th hole to win the Dubai Desert Classic, overcoming early jitters to beat playing partner Richard Sterne by three shots. Gallacher finished with a 22-under total of 266. Looking for his first European Tour win since 2004, Gallacher (71) had a nervous start. The 111th-ranked Scotsman had a three-shot lead over Sterne but bogeyed the first two holes while Sterne birdied the second. Wire-to-wire Associated PressPhil Mickelson shouts as he celebrates a long birdie putt on the seventh hole Sunday during the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Ariz. Querrey lifts US to victory in Davis Cup Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Sam Querrey beat Thiago Alves 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (3) on Sunday to give the United States a dramatic 3-2 victory over Brazil and a spot in the Davis Cup quarterfinals. The U.S. will host Serbia in the next round in Boise, Idaho, from April 5-7. Querrey stepped up after teammate John Isner lost 2-6, 6-4, 6-7 (7), 6-4, 6-3 to Thomaz Bellucci earlier Sunday, forcing a deciding fifth match. It was the first time since 2000 that a U.S. team needed to win the fifth match to advance. The 25-year-old Querrey started fast, breaking Alves in the second game of the match. But Alves, ranked No. 141, responded with breaks of his own in the third and ninth games to take the opening set. Querrey responded with a consistent array of cross-court winners to control play the rest of the way. While Isner, the highest-ranked singles player in the tie at No. 16, bemoaned his play, Querrey expressed satisfaction with a straight-set win over Bellucci on Friday and the four-setter against Alves on Sunday. I was very happy with the way I battled through (the match), Querrey said. I fought through the tough points and got breaks in the second, third and fourth sets. I was just happy to get through it. Querrey was especially effective with his serve. He finished with 26 aces, compared to one for Alves, often clocking 120 mph or faster. When Alves was able to return a serve, it often was with little pace, enabling Querrey to eventually hit winners.Spectators flock to sleepy event for NadalVINA DEL MAR, Chile They were giving the tickets away a year ago and still had a difficult time attracting fans. Its a different story this year at the VTR Open, a small ATP clay-court tournament in this resort city on Chiles Pacific coast. This is where Rafael Nadal has decided to make his comeback after sitting out for more than seven months with an injured left knee. Nadal had never been to Chile, much less played an event here. Now hes being treated like a native son, with local newspapers digging up his connections to distant family members in the country. Chilean President Sebastian Pinera was one of the first to greet him when he arrived. Call it the Nadal Effect. This country wants success and wants to be seen as successful, said tournament press officer Rafael Walker. For a long time the country was like a little island, isolated from the world by the sea and mountains. So when you get a big star here like Nadal hes treated like a rock star. Associated PressUSAs John Isner argues a call Sunday during his match with Brazils Thomaz Bellucci in the first match of the day during the 2013 World Group First Round of the Davis Cup at Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville.

Citrus drivers prevailed in four of the five classes featuring county drivers, while five more finished in the top three of their respective divisions. County competitors ruled the top of the Pure Stocks, with winner Karlin Ray of Floral City, second-place Jason Waller of Inverness and returning champion Happy Florian of Lecanto completing the top of the field while Inverness Mike Autenrieth finished fifth in the 20-lapper. Driving the No. 32 car his brother Jeremy won the Mini Stock points championship with a season ago, Floral Citys Travis Sharrone was perfect on his first try. The 17-year-old captured a 20-lap victory in his first-ever race after pulling aheadaround lap 6 in the Minis. I was getting beat in the No. 1 and 2 turns, which was nerve-racking, and I held it down on the 3 and 4s, Sharrone said about maintaining a lead against second-place finisher Dr. Shannon Kennedy of Floral City Animal Clinic. Fellow Floral City resident Dora Thorne, the 2012 Street Stock champion who was driving a Mini Stock owned by Kennedy, climbed from the back of the pack to finish third in her first Minis race while awaiting next Saturdays Street Stock season opener. Hernandos Richie Smith was dominant in a 40-lap Open Wheel Modified race that had little movement among the top spots as heat-winners Smith and Wesley Chapels Troy Robinson were wire-to-wire as No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. Devin McLeod, of Zephyrhills, grabbed the third position relatively early and held on for the remainder, while Inverness drivers Herb Neumann Jr. and Steven Hise finished sixth and eighth, respectively. Reigning points champion Jay Witfoth of Beverly Hills ensured a dramatic 25-lap Sportsman division race by making several moves on the field before falling short at second behind Sarasotas Mark Peterson. Cautions on laps 24 and 25 hurt Whitfoths chances of converting a final push for the win. Once the tires cool off a little bit, its hard to jump out there on the outside, said Whitfoth on contending with a late caution from behind. We just waited a little too long to go after Peterson. Hes was good, as he normally is. Well take a second-place. Mark Landis, of Delray Beach, kicked off the Southern Regions Pro Challenge Series with a victory, and husband-and-wife duo Ron (first place) and Jennifer Dillon, of Inverness Dillons Irish Pub, took the top spots in the three-car Hornet division race. The Citrus County Speedway point season continues next Saturday with heat races beginning at 5:30 p.m. Countys drivers have strong showing at Speedway points opener Michael Crabtree caught a 19-yarder on San Franciscos second series, and tight end Vernon Davis eluded Lewis twice before making second-quarter catches. Lewis did, however, make two tackles during the 49ers final drive. San Francisco had a fourth-and-goal from 5 when Lewis charged in on a blitz. He didnt get to Kaepernick, but the quarterbacks pass sailed out of the end zone. After amassing a team-high 44 tackles in Baltimores first three playoff wins, Lewis was anything but exceptional against the 49ers. But the Ravens played like champions around him, and now Lewis can saunter into the sunset after putting his fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy a second time. While working his way back from a torn right triceps that had kept him sidelined since Oct. 14, Lewis told high-ranking team officials that he was going to retire after this season. He shared the news with his teammates and the media on Jan. 2, saying Baltimores postseason run would be his last ride. And what a journey it was. After defeating Indianapolis at home to open the playoffs, the Ravens beat top-seeded Denver on the road and knocked off second-seeded New England. Then, underdogs again in the Super Bowl, Baltimore blew most of a 22-point lead in the second half before mounting one final defensive stand. Lewis old buddy, 34-year-old Ed Reed, contributed a first-half interception. Jacoby Jones scored two touchdowns, and after the second a 108-yard kickoff return to open the third quarter he saluted his retiring teammate with a rendition of the squirrel dance Lewis made famous. Days earlier, Lewis was confronted about his use of deer antler spray in his effort to return from the triceps injury. He vehemently denied trying the banned substance, and that sideshow fizzled out quickly enough so it was not a distraction on Sunday. Lewis was the second draft pick in Ravens history, following Jonathan Ogden in 1996. Ogden, who was elected into the NFL Hall of Fame on Saturday, waved to his former teammate during the pregame coin flip Sunday. Perhaps one day, Ogden will extend the greeting to Lewis in Canton, Ohio. LEWISContinued from Page B1 But Baltimore stopped San Francisco on fourth-and-goal from the 5 with under 2 minutes left when Kaepernicks pass sailed beyond Michael Crabtree in the end zone. The biggest deficit a team has ever overcome to win a Super Bowl is 10 points, and there were moments were it appeared San Francisco had a chance to better that mark. Instead, the 49ers lost for the first time in six trips to the Super Bowl. The AFC champion Ravens (14-6), a franchise that moved from Cleveland to Baltimore 17 years ago, improved to 2-0 in the big game. They also won the championship in 2001, when linebacker Ray Lewis was voted the games MVP. Lewis was not a major factor this time, but he was a center of attention, playing in the final game of his 17-year career before retiring. The 49ers struggled early in the first Super Bowl coaching matchup between brothers: Baltimores John Harbaugh is 15 months older than San Franciscos Jim Harbaugh. Baltimore led 28-6 after Jones opened the second half with the longest kickoff return in a Super Bowl, his eyes glancing up at the videoboard, presumably to watch himself sprint to the end zone. The 49ers showed they were capable of a comeback in their previous game: They trailed by 17 against the Atlanta Falcons before winning the NFC championship game. Shortly following Jones return, the sudden, odd power outage arrived. Escalators werent working. Officials stopped play about 1 1/2 minutes into the third quarter, and the bizarre delay lasted 34 minutes in real time before action resumed. Some players sat. Others stretched. Some fans chanted, Lets go, Ravens! Others passed time by doing the wave. This was the 10th time New Orleans hosted the big game tying Miami for most in a city and first since Hurricane Katrina devastated the Big Easy in August 2005. When play resumed, NFC champion San Francisco (13-5-1) began making things more interesting, scoring 17 points in less than 4 1/2 minutes. First, Kaepernick threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Crabtree, pulling them within 15 points midway through the third quarter. Ravens defensive backs Cary Williams and Bernard Pollard missed tackles on the play. Then, with 5 minutes left in the third quarter, Frank Gore swept around right end for a 6-yard TD run, making it 28-20, before Ravens running back Ray Rices fumble gave the ball right back to the 49ers. San Francisco tacked on David Akers 34-yard field goal to get within 28-23 after he missed from a longer distance but the Ravens were whistled for running into the kicker. It was his third successful kick of the game after hitting from 36 and 27 yards in the first half. How close was it heading into the fourth quarter? Each team had exactly 17 first downs. Total yardage was nearly the same, with the 49ers slightly ahead, 317-315. Time of possession was nearly split down the middle, too. About 2 minutes into the fourth quarter, rookie kicker Justin Tucker made a 19-yard field goal to stretch the Ravens lead to 31-23. Not long later, Kaepernicks 15-yard run around the left side the longest TD run by a quarterback in Super Bowl history made it 31-29. His 2-point conversion pass intended for Randy Moss was incomplete. A 38-yarder by Tucker made it 34-29 with 4:19 left in regulation. Baltimore purposely gave up a safety in the closing seconds to run time off the clock, setting the final score. Kaepernick was making only his 10th start in the NFL, having taken over the job after Alex Smith got a concussion during a game. After his touchdown run, Kaepernick kissed his tattooed right biceps, his celebration move. The first half was all about Flacco. He went 13 for 20 for 192 yards and the three scores over the opening two quarters, becoming only the sixth QB in 47 Super Bowls to throw for that many TDs by halftime. Flacco finished 22 of 33 for 287 yards. LIGHTSContinued from Page B1

Associated PressNEW ORLEANS Quarterback Joe Flacco put off contract talks with the Baltimore Ravens until after the season was done. Seems like a pretty good decision at the moment, huh? Capping a perfect postseason, the unassuming and unheralded Flacco completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three first-half touchdowns Sunday, earning Super Bowl MVP honors for leading the Ravens to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Setting aside any questions about just how good he is and where he belongs in the conversation about the leagues best quarterbacks, Flacco became only the sixth in 47 Super Bowls to throw for three scores in a first half, connecting with Anquan Boldin for 13 yards, Dennis Pitta for 1, and Jacoby Jones for 56. And the admittedly mildmannered guy, who played his college football far from the spotlight at Delaware, wrapped up Baltimores four-game run to the title with 11 TD passes and zero interceptions. It was an impressive streak that included road victories against two of the games best QBs, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Flaccos job in the second half Sunday was more about being safe than spectacular. He had helped Baltimore take a 21-6 halftime lead, and it grew to 28-6 when Jones returned the second-half kickoff a Super Bowl-record 108 yards. That, though, is when things got strange. First, a power outage knocked out many lights inside the Superdome, delaying action for more than a half-hour. And when play resumed, San Francisco quickly scored 17 consecutive points to make things interesting. The Ravens held on down the stretch though, with two short field goals by rookie Justin Tucker padding the lead, and the Ray Lewis-led defense stopping the 49ers on a fourth-and-goal at the 5. I was sitting there thinking, Theres no way. Theres no way we stop them here, Flacco said. But we did. Neither Flacco nor his team appeared to be ready to take on all comers as the regular season concluded. After all, the Ravens lost four of their final games to stumble into the playoffs. And Flacco, a fifth-year pro, finished only 12th in the 32-team NFL in passer rating at a passable 87.7 way behind league leader Aaron Rodgers 108.0 while compiling 22 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. Middle-of-the-pack, to say the least. But he and his team sure did shine when the results mattered most. I tell you what: We dont make it easy, Flacco said. But thats the way the city of Baltimore is. Thats the way we are. He certainly becomes a different player in the playoffs. He set an NFL record for quarterbacks by leading his team to playoff wins in each of his first five seasons. He is 9-4 overall in the postseason. His contract is up now. And he could wind up with one of the biggest deals in NFL history, perhaps commanding somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 million a year. There would have been an opportunity to sign something last offseason, but Flaccos agent and the Ravens could not agree on how much he was worth. The rest of the world wasnt really sure, either. Flacco gave quite an answer Sunday.SUPERBOWLCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, FEBRUARY4, 2013 B5 San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick throws under pressure from Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs during the second half of the Super Bowl.

Associated PressNEW YORK The lovestruck zombies of Warm Bodies swarmed the box office on Super Bowl weekend with a $20 million opening. On a weekend that Hollywood largely punts to football, the PG-13 film from Lionsgates Summit Entertainment easily led the box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Super Bowl always means a significant slide in movie-going on Sunday studios predict a decrease of as much as 70 percent from Saturday to Sunday but Warm Bodies still lured many teenage fans. The film is about a zombie whose love for a human redeems him. Lionsgate, which also released the Twilight saga, is calling it a rom-zomcom for its mix of humor, romance and the supernatural. The film appealed particularly to females, who made up 60 percent of the audience. Younger female audiences have some history of turning out on Super Bowl weekends. The most successful film released the weekend of the big game was in 2008, when Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert opened with $31.1 million. Action films continued to fare poorly in 2013, as Sylvester Stallones Bullet to the Head opened with just $4.5 million for Warner Bros. But both openings were poor. Along with the weak performance of Jason Stathams Parker, which has taken in $12.4 million in two weeks for FilmDistrict, moviegoers arent turning out for traditional Rrated action movies, though that trend may reverse itself when Bruce Willis A Good Day to Die Hard opens Feb. 14. Last weeks top film, Paramounts Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, dropped to second with $9.2 million on the weekend. The other debut of note was Lionsgates Stand Up Guys, which stars Al Pacino and Christopher Walken as veteran gangsters on a last hurrah romp. Though it opened in limited release in 659 theaters, it took in just $1.5 million. The most Super Bowl-appropriate film in theaters, the Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook, continued to add to its stretched-out run for the Weinstein Co. The film, which centers on a family of diehard Philadelphia Eagles fans, came in third place, adding $8.1 million for a cumulative total of $80.4 million.

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Dont despair if you face tribulation, because even weighty matters can be worked out. If you remember to think positively, youll be able to take your challenges in stride. Aries (March 21-April 19) Before opening your mouth, stop and count to 10 if you find yourself in a conflict of opinion with another party. Only when youre calm should you venture to talk things out. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Although it might not live up to your fullest hopes, something profitable could develop from a situation engineered by a friend. Be happy with what you get. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Dont think you have to stick to a particular procedure because of tradition when an associate has what could prove to be a better idea. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you happen to make a few mistakes at the start of a project, instead of panicking, you should stop and catch your breath. Most problems are more easily rectified than you realize. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Even if conditions initially look as if they are going against you, dont freak out. Surprising twists could occur, enabling you to snatch success from the jaws of defeat. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Trying too hard to get the approval of your peers can work against you. However, if you relax and just be yourself, you will easily gain the endorsement youre seeking. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Be smart and downplay some advice given to you by a well-intentioned friend. Youre better equipped to evaluate certain personal matters than he or she is. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Some periodic, extravagant inclinations could be stirring within you, and need to be checked as soon as possible. Enjoy yourself, but do so as inexpensively as possible. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Provided you treat all of your friends equally, this could be a rather pleasant day. If you show any partiality, however, it might not be so hot.

FloridaLOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning n umbers, Page B4 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Page B6MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2013 Warm Bodies heats up box office Associated PressA member of the Niner Noise Drumline entertains fans Sunday before Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. Associated Press NEW YORK With storylines ranging from head injuries to deer antler extract, CBS had a spicy gumbo of issues for its daylong pregame coverage of the Super Bowl in New Orleans. Party background noise for most viewers, the oftderided Super Bowl pregame programming can also be revealing of the broadcasting network. Often, networks bend over backward to awkwardly promote unrelated shows. Fox (one shudders to recall) once put a red carpet in a parking lot with Ryan Seacrest. CBSs coverage of its 18th Super Bowl didnt lack in cross-promotion (including one shameless tie-in with Pizza Hut), but it had a more professional feel than the gluttonous pregame affairs often do. The network centered its Super Bowl lead-up on teary human interest stories and football-centric programming. But there was plenty of softballing. The controversial Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis was interviewed not by a journalist, but by his former teammate and current CBS Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe. The interview, disappointingly, was taped before the story broke alleging his use of deer antler extract, which includes a banned substance. No need to worry, though, Sharpe quickly explained that issue was old news. He also let Lewis completely sidestep addressing the double murder case in which Lewis testified against two men and pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice. The biggest issue in the NFL today head injuries was frequently discussed by the CBS crew, including a story by NFL Today host James Brown that delved into some of the effects of the NFLs hard hitting, and the efforts under way to protect players. But the bent of the story, as Dan Marino insisted on the set, was that the NFL is way out in front of the issue. Coming to a Super Bowl pregame show for an indepth, frank discussion of a subject like concussions, though, is perhaps foolhardy. As the two-tiered panel of analysts each weighed in, it was difficult to hear over the boozy, whooping fans bordering the Jackson Square set outside the Super Dome. In an interview with CBS News Scott Pelley, President Barack Obama again said that if he had a son interested in football, he would think before letting him play football, given whats now known about head injuries. Whether head trauma would get much airtime during the game broadcast by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms was to be one of the broadcasts big questions. Three years running, the NFLs championship game has set a viewership record, topped last year by NBCs broadcast to an average audience of 111.3 million people. But ratings were a mere point of pride for CBS heading into kickoff. The ads had already been sold (some at more than $4 million a pop), so the network could only hope to put forth its best broadcast and deflect as much of the Super Bowl glow to its other programs and its cable sports network. The game was also streamed live on both CBSSports.com and NFL.com, but CBS expected the broadcast to be the overwhelmingly more popular viewing choice. For CBS, softballs ahead of football Associated PressSo-called rom-zom-com Warm Bodies topped the box office this week, with Hansel and Gretel and Silver Linings Playbook trailing. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Ben Affleck has won the top film honor from the Directors Guild of America for his CIA thriller Argo, further sealing its status as best-picture front-runner at the Academy Awards. Saturdays prize also normally would make Affleck a near shoo-in to win best-director at the Feb. 24 Oscars, since the Directors Guild recipient nearly always goes on to claim the same prize at Hollywoods biggest night. But Affleck surprisingly missed out on an Oscar directing nomination, along with several other key favorites, including fellow Directors Guild contenders Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty and Tom Hooper for Les Miserables. Afflecks Oscar snub has not hurt Argo and may even have earned it some favor among awards voters as an underdog favorite. Argo has dominated other awards since the Oscar nominations. I dont think that this makes me a real director, but I think it means Im on my way, said Affleck, who won for just his third film behind the camera. The Directors Guild honors continued Hollywoods strange awards season, which could culminate with a big Oscar win for Afflecks Argo. The guilds prize for best director typically is a final blessing for the film that goes on to win bestpicture and director at the Oscars. Affleck can go only onefor-two at the Oscars, though. While Argo is up for best picture, the directors branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences overlooked him for a directing slot. Backstage at the Directors Guild honors, Affleck said he had nothing but respect for the academy and that youre not entitled to anything. Im thrilled and honored that the academy nominated me as a producer of the movie, Affleck said. I know our movie, were a little bit underdog and a little bit the little engine that could, and you take me out of it maybe helps ... its just about that picture. I feel like its OK, Im really lucky, Im in a good place. With 12 Oscar nominations, Steven Spielbergs Civil War saga Lincoln initially looked like the Oscar favorite over such other potential favorites as Argo, Les Miserables and Zero Dark Thirty, since films generally have little chance of winning best picture if they are not nominated for best director. Only three films have done it in 84 years, most recently 1989s best-picture champ Driving Miss Daisy, which failed to earn a directing nomination for Bruce Beresford. But Afflecks Argo, in which he also stars as a CIA operative who hatches a bold plan to rescue six Americans during the hostage crisis in Iran, has swept up all the major awards since the Oscar nominations. Argo won best drama and director at the Golden Globes and top film honors from the Screen Actors Guild and the Producers Guild of America. Many of the same film professionals who vote in guild awards also cast ballots for the Oscars, so all the wins for Argo are a strong sign that the film has the inside track for best picture. Milos Forman, a twotime Directors Guild and Oscar winner for One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest and Amadeus, received the groups lifetime-achievement award. Guild President Taylor Hackford let the crowd in a toast to Forman, who was ill and unable to attend. Malik Bendjelloul won the guilds documentary award for Searching for Sugar Man, his study of the fate of critically acclaimed but obscure 1970s singer-songwriter Rodriquez. The film also is nominated for best documentary at the Oscars. Jay Roach won the guild trophy for TV movies and miniseries for Game Change, his drama starring Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in her 2008 vice-presidential run.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY4, 2013 B7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Ingrid Bergman said, A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous. At the bridge table, if you find a lovely, extra, contract-fulfilling trick, especially in a grand slam, your partner will give you a metaphorical kiss. In this deal, South barrels into seven spades. After West leads the heart queen, how should declarer continue? If South had used a second dose of Blackwood and learned that two kings were missing, he would have stopped in six spades and ruined a good story. (If you use Roman Key Card Blackwood, it is a good idea to treat an immediate response of four no-trump as regular Blackwood, not RKCB. To use RKCB in openers suit, make a forcing raise, then bid four no-trump on the second round.) When in a grand slam, count winners. Here, South has only 12: six spades, two hearts, one diamond and three clubs. Where might a 13th trick come from? There is only one sensible chance: hearts. That requires a 4-3 heart break and three dummy entries: two for the heart ruffs in the closed hand and one to return to the dummy to cash the established heart. What are those entries? They must be one heart and two clubs. So, after winning the first trick on the board, declarer must not touch trumps. He must immediately cash the second heart winner (discarding a diamond from hand) and ruff a heart. Then he draws trumps, plays a club to dummys queen, ruffs another heart, leads a club to the ace, and pitches his second low diamond on the last heart.

We have children together. I have reached the point in my life that I wish to be married. I never wanted to be a girlfriend forever, and he knew this from the beginning. John says stupid things like, If you did such-and-such, then Id marry you. I dont believe marriage is about how much I can do for him. Its about loving each other enough to commit. I love John, but he is unwilling to take that step, so I have told him if we are not married by next summer, he has to move out and let me get on with my life. Im not trying to force him to the altar. Its simply that if a legal commitment isnt in the cards, I need to plan my future without him. The problem is, John tells me he will not leave. I dont want things to get nasty by involving the authorities, but I want more out of my life than he does. Over the past few months, I have made myself completely miserable just thinking about all of this. Am I being unreasonable? Am I putting myself and my needs first by demanding he make a choice? Dazed and Confused Dear Dazed: No. Johns needs have come first for the past 10 years. But aside from that, you already may have a legal commitment in place. When a couple lives together as long as you have, it is recognized in many states as a common-law marriage. So, although you havent had a ceremony, you may, in fact, be legally tied. You also have children, and a separation will entail custody, visitation and child support arrangements, so you might consider counseling before disentangling yourself. Even something as simple as tossing him out of the house becomes a legal matter. Check the laws in your state regarding commonlaw marriage, and if necessary, get the assistance of an attorney. Dear Annie: We have a home in another state and allow family members and friends to vacation there. Recently, when we went to the house, we found several framed family photographs of our guests throughout the family room and bedroom. I think this is in poor taste and that our guests have overstepped their privileges. Should I say thank you and simply put the photos away? Or should I allow others to decorate my home? Concerned Dear Concerned: Well, this is certainly nervy. You are obviously such an accommodating host that your guests feel a little too much at home. We suggest returning the photographs to the owners, saying, You must have left these at our house when you last stayed there. I know you would want them back so you can appreciate them in your own home. Dear Annie: I am S.W. from California, the 88-year-old who had a falling out with his daughter. She and her husband cut off contact, so I cut them out of my will. After the letter appeared, I got a call from my son-in-law, who referred me to some online comments about your column. I was surprised by the negative response. It seems there is a generation gap. I was a Depression kid, and there was no help from the government. If you couldnt pay for food, you starved. Having gone through such rough times, we wanted to make things easy for our kids, and we gave them everything. It only resulted in spoiling them, and they, in turn, spoiled the next generation. These kids expect everything to be given to them and show no respect for their parents. My generation always showed respect. Fortunately, as a result of your publishing my letter, my daughter contacted me, and we are now speaking again. She doesnt see things my way, and I dont see things her way, but we have agreed to disagree. S.W. from California Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
