SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS A young mother is facing first-degree murder charges in the death of her 6-monthold infant son, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Brittany Nichole Arnett, 20, of Robin Hood Road who was arrested Monday was reportedly upset that her boyfriend had left her at home with the baby when she turned her fury on the infant, according to the arrest affidavit. At around noon on Jan. 27, Arnett reportedly placed the baby in his swing and in the following two hours slammed the face of the infant into the swing tray. She admitted to investigators she also grabbed the infant by the rib cage and yanked him from the swing with such force it caused the babys head to snap back and forth without resistance. Arnett also told investigators she recalled when she pulled the baby out of the swing, the infants head hit the swing. According to the affidavit, Arnett said she knew the baby was injured by the time her boyfriend got home, but was afraid to tell him or seek medical help. When the boyfriend got home, the baby appeared to be acting normal, but was sensitive to touch and had Brittany Arnett arrested Monday. TDC hopes to attract more business C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerGetting sportier would attract more events and more business. Its something the tourism board has looked at, and were just trying to diversify our economic base here to promote our county, said County Commissioner Rebecca Bays, chairman of the Tourist Development Council. Its one of those avenues we can take to help promote Citrus County and bring families in the type of people wed like to have here. Tourism is joining forces with the Parks and Recreation Department to offer sports facilities and to advance a plan of sports marketing to bring national tournaments. The goal also is to revitalize events residents already enjoy. About a year ago, tourism was put under the Community Services Department, said Cathy Pearson, assistant County makes pitch for bigger sporting events A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerHOMOSASSA It was a Free Willy moment Monday near the spring head of the Homosassa River. But unlike the famous movie about the release of a whale into the wild, the mammals here were manatees, and they took their languid time to slowly slide through the gate into the warm spring area of the river. The release of sea cows Wooten, Laroc and Charlie, after periods of rehabilitation at various locations, was the first of its kind since the 1990s, according to Art Yerian, manager of the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. They are what we call nave animals, which means they are used to humans and are about to get out for the first time on their own, Yerian said as Laroc was getting ready to be unloaded from a truck into a holding tank the precursor to release into the area known as the Fish Bowl. Temperatures in the spring area remain a relatively balmy 72 degrees yearround, which is why manatees are drawn there during the winter months. Laroc, Charlie and Wooten were transported in moving trucks and, once on site, tagged with a radio monitor that hangs like a belt around the mammals flap area. More than a dozen people assembled around Laroc as he was slid down the trucks plank onto layers of foam and lowered into the holding tank. Laroc flapped a huge splash as spectators applauded. Laroc joined Wooten and Charlie and, after a moment, the gate to the holding area was lifted. It took the manatees a while to eventually transition into the river, however.

Kathy Pearson director of Community Services. See SPORTS / Page A2 Board taking whack at paddling rule No longer belongs in school, says Himmel M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Rumps rejoice! The board of education is headed for retirement. Citrus County School District officials said theyre ready to remove paddling as a form of punishment from their student code of conduct. Paddling has been on the books in Citrus County for decades. But it hasnt been used for several years, and when school board members reviewed recommended code changes last week, board member Thomas Kennedy suggested getting rid of corporal punishment altogether. Others agreed. I dont think theres anything we should condone about paddling, board member Pat Deutschman said. Paddling was once considered an effective form of punishment. Ginger Bryant occasionally used paddle.

The 700-pound animal was orphaned after a boat struck its mother. It was cared for in Miamis Seaquarium before being moved to the Homosassa wildlife park. MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle See BABY / Page A2

county administrator and director of Community Services. One of the things that we were seeing was that a lot of the other counties have what they call sports marketing sports tourism. We dont have that here and we felt we were missing the boat on that. Sports marketing became part of the Tourist Development Councils strategic plan in October, with a goal of bringing sports tourism into the community. We have Parks and Recreation with the county it made a perfect fit to have Parks and Rec and Tourism work together to make this happen, Pearson said. Already, the plan is underway. Weve booked some baseball tournaments, Pearson said. Weve had some softball tournaments booked. Weve got some basketball that were working on right now. Weve just had somebody approach us about soccer. In addition to being fun and entertaining, Bays and Pearson both emphasized the economic benefit of sports tourism. It draws people to our county. It puts people in our hotel rooms. It helps support our restaurants, Pearson said. Bays said sports tourism would be a good field to test in the county. Were trying to start small and look at it, Bays said. Through tourism, well go out and get information about companies that eventually could do a feasibility study. We want to put our foot in the water and check it out and see how far down the road we want to go with it. The range of sports for national tournaments could include lacrosse, soccer, softball, fishing and baseball. In addition, cheerleading, BMX and 4H Drill team competitions also may figure in the future. To open this avenue took some work. Weve really reorganized our Parks and Recreation Department, Pearson said. We want to bring in a new field. In focusing its effort to attract sports tourism, Parks and Recreation staff also reviewed its current programs to determine if any are being duplicated within the community. According to Pearson, during the past few years, the Parks and Recreation Department summer camp program has competed with those offered by the YMCA, the Boys & Girls Clubs and other organizations. Staff met with Joanna Castle, YMCA executive director, who agreed to take over the Parks and Recreation program called Camp Fusion beginning in May 2013. This will allow county staff more time to work on sports tourism and attract tournaments into the county. She wanted to let us concentrate on adult sports, Pearson said about Castles agreement. A lot of staff time goes into that and we thought we could use our staff time to take us into this new direction to work with tourism to help expand the tourism market with the sports market. For many years, the parks department has hosted Camp Fusion, a 10-week daily summer camp for children aged 6 to 10 that offered many field trips and activities. In addition to the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs, summer camps have been offered by churches, educational groups, sports groups and music groups. County staff also plans to host several sports clinics and camps throughout the summer. For more information, go to www.citrus countyparks.com. Summer camp registration for the YMCA will begin in March. To find information about YMCA programs, call 352-6370132.

School board member Ginger Bryant, who taught 28 years at Crystal River Middle School, said she occasionally used the paddle on unruly students. In some cases it was all we could do to keep a child in line, Bryant said Monday. Student Services coordinator Cherise Cernich, who spent about 15 years as an assistant principal at Lecanto Middle School, said paddling occurred only when parents requested it instead of sending children to inschool suspension. It was never initiated by the school, she said. Always by parent request. And it was very seldom. Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel, who grew up in Citrus County, said she recalled being paddled in kindergarten. There was a fire drill and I was finger painting, Himmel said. I went to wash my hands while everyone left. They paddled me for not leaving for the fire drill. Himmel said paddling no longer has a place in schools. A lot of things that were popular back in the day are not so popular now, she said. For a lot of parents this is not their choice of discipline. That should be a parents choice. Deutschman, the boards senior member, agreed. Times have changed in the ways we discipline children, she said. This is just a bygone era.

The baby also had blood in his mouth, which was removed by a suction ball, the report stated. Arnett reportedly put the baby to bed, but at 6:25 the next morning, she and the boyfriend took the unresponsive baby to Citrus Memorial hospital. Medical staff tried for more than an hour to revive the baby, according to the report. After closely examining the baby, hospital staff noticed numerous marks including bruising of the rib cage and what appeared to be a bite mark on his left thigh. An autopsy conducted the following day on the baby revealed, among other injuries, brain hemorrhaging, a separated spine, broken ribs and lacerations inside the babys mouth. Arnett was arrested Monday and transported to the Citrus County Detention Center.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

Hopefully, they understand its warm here (in the river) and its cold out there (in the Gulf), she said. Ross said the monitors tethered to the sea cows, which are like small floating buckets with an antenna sticking out, aid her organization to keep tabs on their movements and how well they are adjusting. The monitors come off after about a year and when staff is satisfied with the progress of the manatees. Marilyn Margold, who is with the South Florida Museum in Bradenton, was on hand to see Charlie released. Margold said Charlies mother was struck by a boat in early 2011 and in August of 2011 Charlie was brought to the museum for rehabilitation. She said the MRP chose the Homosassa River for the release of the manatees based on criteria of optimal chances for transition into the wild. Yerian said Wooten, who came from the Columbus Zoo, was initially going to be released in the Orange River, but things changed because of bacteria in that river. Wooten had been in the holding tank for three weeks prior to Mondays release. I hope they do great, Yerian said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

From staff reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE L AURENS AGER EINLIE Northwest Florida Daily News HURLBURT FIELD On Sunday, 15 airmen lined up along the sidewalk in the morning sun. They read the names of their five fallen comrades, hoisted their 40-pound rucksacks onto their backs and took their first brisk steps. More than 450 miles of winding road lay before them. The men are marching day and night to Tampa in remembrance of the five special operations airmen from Hurlburt Field who were killed in action last year. They expect to arrive Friday. Were honoring our heroes step by step, said Sgt. Deon McGowen, who organized the rucksack march. The men are scheduled to pass through Crystal River and Homosassa Thursday, Feb. 7, traveling south on U.S. 19. According to information from their Facebook page, the airmen should be in Crystal River around 10 a.m. and passing Sugarmill Woods around 1:30 p.m. The men who were killed were the marchers friends, roommates and brothers-in-arms. Mitch Sherman is marching for his best friend, Capt. Ryan Hall, who was killed at age 30 when his U-28A plane went down near Djibouti, Africa, on Feb. 18, 2012. Three other special operations airmen, Capt. Nicholas Whitlock, 29, 1st Lt. Justin Wilkens, 26, and Senior Airman Julian Scholten, 26, were also killed in the crash. They were returning from a mission when the plane went down. About a week later, on Feb. 28, 2012, another Hurlburt airman, Lt. Col. John Loftis, 44, was shot to death at his desk during an attack on the Interior Ministry in Kabul, Afghanistan. The marchers are also raising money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides scholarships for the children of Special Ops servicemen who are killed in action. Two Hurlburt airmen are en route to Tanzania to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro as part of the effort. By Sunday afternoon, they had raised more than $8,000. They hope to reach $50,000 by the end of the march, McGowen said. The men will march in a relay to Tampa; at least two will be on the road at all times. Each will likely cover at least 100 miles over the next five days. WANT TO HELP?

DEVON RAVINE /Northwest Florida Daily News A group airmen march through Hurlburt Field, an Air Force installation in Fort Walton Beach, on Sunday en route to the U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa. Walking in teams, the 15 special operations airmen will march with their rucksacks 24 hours a day to make the 450-mile journey in memory of five fellow Hurlburt Field airmen who were killed last year and to raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Airmen walk to honor fallen comrades N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writer INVERNESS F irst, you have to know how to play a band instrument. Next, you have to be able to carry it outdoors on a football field for 20, 30, 60 minutes without setting it down. In heat or cold. While playing it. And moving. In formation. Think its easy? Think again. But its something that gets into your blood, said Benny Pisani, vice president of the Sun Devils Drum and Bugle Corps and Citrus High Schools drumline instructor for the past 10 years. As an umbrella organization, the Citrus County-based Sun Devils includes RPT Percussion Theater, a mostly indoor group of drum and percussion performers, Sun Devils Drum and Bugle Corps and Impact, mostly comprised of older adults. Impact is based in Orlando. The definition of a drum and bugle corps is a brass and percussion ensemble that competes on a football field, said Sun Devils president Lou Labetti. Think of it as a mega marching band, added Robb Van Eck, Sun Devils brass caption head. We have four major components to the corps all the brass players, the drummers that march on the field, the drummers that stay stationary on the sidelines and the color guard. Recently, Labetti, Pisani, Van Eck and other Sun Devils adult leaders coached and drilled more than 50 teens and young adult percussion and horn players during a rehearsal weekend at Citrus High School. While many were from Citrus County, others came from as far away as Jacksonville, Daytona and the Panhandle. Scattered across the campus, small groups practiced, practiced, practiced semicircles of contrabass (small tuba) players on the lawn by the football field, color guards practicing their precision flag drills in the empty parking lot, a half-dozen xylophone players plinking out their rhythms in the cafetorium, a drumline perfecting their choreography while beating their drums. Weve wanted to bring this to Citrus (County) so the kids dont have to travel all over the place to do something like this, Pisani said. At one time, band was not cool, but today kids are lining up to join. Ever since the movie Drumline came out, the one about a college show band, ever since, everyone wants to be a drummer, Pisani said. Were overrun with drummers. Try to find horn players, thats another matter. Pisani said the Sun Devils have won two national championships so far. This August they will be hosting an event at Citrus High School with drum and bugle corps coming from all over, even from out of state. Ive been a part of this activity since I was a kid in New Jersey, off and on for 40 years, Pisani said. You get a passion for it. The Sun Devils, a not-forprofit organization, is open to anyone age 14 and older. Members do not need to supply their own instruments. Membership does not require an audition, but skills will be evaluated and members placed accordingly. For more information, visit online at www.sundevilsdrum corps.org or email Benny Pisani at bpisani@tampa bay.rr.com.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline. com or 352-564-2927. Catching the rhythm Sun Devils Drum and Bugle Corps brings band style to Citrus County NANCY KENNEDY /Chronicle Members of RPT Percussion Theater, one of three groups that belong to the Sun Devils Drum and Bugle Corps, practice for an upco ming show. The Sun Devils recently made Citrus County home base. Austin Petrich, from Jacksonville, plays a xylophone as part of RPT Percussion Theater, which is made up of teens and young adults from around the state. They recently met at Citrus High School to practice for an upcoming show. C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerLECANTO A Homosassa property owners association may have found an alternative to building its community facility on greenbelt land. Sugarmill Woods Oak Village Association will make a conditional use request on Thursday before the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC) to use an existing structure at 8827 S. Suncoast Blvd., Homosassa. The structure is a 2,548 square foot model house constructed in 2001 on a lot of more than 1.21 acres. It fronts U.S. 19 and is just south of a commercial node, according to information in the application. The area is both residential and commercial with some undeveloped lots. In April 2012, the association upset about a dozen of its members when it requested the PDC change the designation of almost 5 acres of land within Sugarmill Woods from nature belt to community facility to make a site for a 4,000-square-foot office building. However, the nature belt designation did not originate with the county or the state, but from the property owners deed restrictions. Thus, the county could not enforce the designation change. The PDC, by a 5-to-2 vote with modified conditions, recommended the previous application for an atlas amendment to the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. However, it currently is on hold at the applicants request. County staff will recommend approval of the current conditional use application with the condition that development will be consistent with a specific site plan. The PDC is empowered to grant the conditional use request as a final action. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Emails raise questions about Fla. redistricting Associated PressTALLAHASSEE New documents are raising questions about whether Florida legislators ignored rules intended to prevent political parties and incumbents from influencing the once-a-decade process of redistricting. Emails show top Republican Party of Florida officials met in late 2010 to brainstorm redistricting with political consultants and legislative employees involved in drawing new districts for Congress and the Legislature. That was just a few weeks after voters overwhelmingly adopted the Fair Districts constitutional amendments that set new standards for redistricting and were intended to remove partisanship from the politically charged job of creating new maps. The Associated Press requested the documents after they were presented in a court hearing last week. Several groups have filed lawsuits seeking to have a court throw out the maps eventually adopted for both Congress and the Florida Senate. That court battle has sparked a tug-of-war over who should be required to testify and what documents should be presented in court. A bid to force legislators and legislative staff to turn over information is currently before an appeals court. But what has emerged is a batch of documents that consist mainly of emails between Florida political consultants including some who were getting paid by the Republican Party. The emails show how the consultants routinely traded redistricting information, and how it would potentially affect Republican incumbents. But some emails show legislative employees exchanging information with these same consultants. In one example, a top aide to thenHouse Speaker Dean Cannon used a personal email account to send a consultant a link to a congressional district map. The aide Kirk Pepper did not respond to a phone call or email. Another email shows a Republican Party official telling one political consultant that the latest proposed redistricting map for Congress could entice U.S. Rep. John Mica to run against U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams. Mica did run against Adam, defeating her in the GOP primary. Every 10 years, lawmakers redraw legislative and congressional districts based on new population figures. But two years ago voters approved the Fair Districts constitutional amendments, which state that legislators cant draw districts intended to protect incumbents or members of a certain political party.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Legislature should allow more time and more places for early voting and limit the length of the summaries for proposed state constitutional amendments that lawmakers put on the ballot, Floridas elections chief recommended Monday. Secretary of State Ken Detzner presented his proposals to Gov. Rick Scott and later to a legislative panel. His ideas drew a mixed and sometimes partisan response from lawmakers. Detzner told the House Ethics and Elections Subcommittee that Floridas 2012 elections were fair even though thousands of voters waited in line for hours on Election Day, as well as during early voting, and though it took days to finish counting ballots. I just dont think it was fair that we had these long lines and people who would have otherwise voted didnt because of them, said Rep. Mike Clelland. The Lake Mary Democrat then asked Detzner, an appointee of the Republican governor, how sure he was that his proposals would be the answer. I am 100 percent confident that my report and our recommendations will solve the problem, and I am 100 percent sure that these recommendations were without party influence, were unbiased and were the best representation of the best people that I could find in Florida to make recommendations, Detzner. His proposals, made after touring the state and meeting with local election officials, would undo a couple key elements of an election law passed by the Republican-majority Legislature in 2011. The GOP-sponsored law reduced early voting days, which has wide support among minorities who tend to favor Democrats, to no more than eight days from a previous requirement of 12 to 14 days. It also eliminated early voting on the Sunday before Election Day, when blacks often vote after church in a tradition known as souls to the polls. Detzner proposed making eight days the minimum while giving the 67 county supervisors of elections the option of extending early voting to as many as 14 days, including the Sunday before Election Day. The 2011 law made no change in a previous limit on early voting sites to election supervisors main and branch offices, city halls and public libraries. Detzner proposed expanding the list to include other government facilities such as stadiums, fairgrounds, civic centers, convention centers and courthouses. The Florida Association of Supervisors of Election is in agreement with Detzners recommendation on voting days but says its members should be able to pick voting sites through the same process they use for securing Election Day polling places, which often include churches and other non-governmental buildings. Rep. Ritch Workman, RMelbourne, questioned the need for such changes. He said he didnt notice long lines during the 2008 election, which also had a high turnout. Workman, instead, blamed the Legislature for putting 11 proposed amendments on the ballot. Voters rejected all but three of those proposals, including measures that would have advanced the GOP agenda on such issues as abortion, health care, taxes and private school vouchers. The one problem we had is 4,000 words worth of amendments that caused these long lines, Workman said. I think were trying to fix too much. Detzer agreed that ballot length was the biggest issue. Supervisors advised me to the person, whether you had long lines or not, that the administration of an election with so many constitutional amendments was a serious, serious problem, he said.

She said she was honored to have her current team members have the opportunity to meet the members of this inaugural team. In the days before the OConnell Center, the inaugural team played in the Florida gym which was fondly known as Alligator Alley. The Florida gymnasium is used today for intramurals and classrooms. Lawmakers look for partners in state exchange Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE Florida lawmakers heard Monday from two organizations that could serve as partners in running an insurance exchange under the federal health overhaul. Florida has missed the deadline to run its own online marketplace where people can shop for health coverage, but lawmakers are considering whether they want to run their own in the future or partner with federal health officials. During a meeting in Tallahassee on Monday, lawmakers explored options from organizations already running programs similar to federal exchanges that they could partner with instead of building something new. Florida Healthy Kids Corporation coordinates coverage for roughly 300,000 children and is responsible for selecting plans, collecting about $31 million a month in premiums and determining eligibility. Those are some of the main functions of the online exchanges. The organization deals with individual coverage, while the exchange will also have to offer insurance plans to small businesses, but Executive Director Rich Robleto said they are essentially running the main operations required by the exchange now. Florida has about 475,000 uninsured children. Its difficult to estimate how many would qualify if the state expanded its Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act. A third of those children are already eligible for Medicaid, but are not enrolled, said Robleto. He estimated between 75,000 and 100,000 children would come into the CHIP program and about that same number would be eligible for commercial coverage. Lawmakers also questioned whether there was a role for Florida Health Choices in the federal health overhaul. The program is essentially an online marketplace where small businesses can browse different health plans. Individuals should be able to shop the site this summer. But the federally mandated exchanges will also tell shoppers whether they are eligible for federal health subsidies to pay for the insurance. Are you concerned youre going to get preempted by the federal exchange because you dont offer the subsidy? asked Republican Sen. Joe Negron. It does make no sense for us to compete against a subsidized offering, said Rose Naff, CEO of Florida Health Choices. She said the organization will likely need to shift its presence in the market. South Florida Democratic Sen. Elaine Schwartz also complained that Florida Health Choices was started in 2008 and still isnt operational five years later. Naff said the website is slated to be up and running at the end of the month. Lawmakers questioned whether the two organizations could work together with the state on some type of exchange going forward.

the credibility of sports in general, following cyclist Lance Armstrongs admission that he used performance-enhancing drugs in all seven of his Tour de France wins. This is a sad day for European football (soccer), Europol Director Rob Wainwright told reporters. He said criminals were cashing in on soccer corruption on a scale and in a way that threatens the very fabric of the game. Europol said 425 match officials, club officials, players and criminals from at least 15 countries were involved in fixing European soccer games dating back to 2008. Ralf Mutschke, director of security at FIFA, the world soccer body, said the report highlighted the need for soccer authorities and police to tackle corruption together. The support of law enforcement bodies, legal investigations, and ultimately tougher sanctions are required, as currently there is low risk and high gain potential for the fixers, he said. Mutschke said while FIFA can ban players, referees and club officials, it is powerless to sanction people not directly involved in the sport. For people outside of football, currently the custodial sentences imposed are too weak and offer little to deter someone from getting involved in matchfixing, he said. Europol is not a police force, but provides expertise and helps coordinate national police across the 27-nation European Union. Its probe uncovered $10.9 million in betting profits and $2.7 million in bribes to players and officials and has already led to several prosecutions. Associated PressTHE HAGUE, Netherlands Organized crime gangs have fixed or tried to fix hundreds of soccer matches around the world in recent years, including World Cup and European Championship qualifiers and two Champions League games, Europol announced Monday. The European Unions police agency said an 18month review found 380 suspicious matches in Europe and another 300 questionable games outside the continent, mainly in Africa, Asia and South and Central America. It also found evidence that a Singapore-based crime syndicate was involved in some of the match-fixing. Europol refused to name any suspected matches, players, officials or match-fixers, saying that would compromise ongoing national investigations, so it remained unclear how much of the information divulged Monday was new or had already been revealed in trials across the continent. Even so, the picture painted by Europol was the latest body blow for Jessica Bond, 22 DUNNELLON Jessica Ann Michelle Bond, 22, of Dunnellon, died Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, at Tampa General Hospital.

Arrangements are by McGan Cremation Service LLC, Hernando. Dennis Delmain, 68 LECANTODennis Duane Delmain, 68, of Lecanto, (aka Pops, Papa, Uncle Denny) went to join his parents; his oldest son, John; his nephews, Ivan Jr. and Sean; and sisterin-law Judy on Jan. 25, 2013. This is a summary of the life of one of the funniest, most honorable, talented, best-looking (he paid me to write that) men we have ever had the privilege of knowing. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, son, uncle and grandfather. He taught us you have to have a sense of humor about the good times and the bad, the importance of hard work and family. He was born Feb. 8, 1944, joining his parents, Ivan Dan and Mary Delmain and big brother, Ivan, in St. Louis, Mo. At age 18 a happy, hard-working young man faced the first of many challenges in his life. An accident in gym class during senior year left him with a broken neck. During his recovery he still managed to keep his sense of humor. He graduated Dunedin High School and became a firefighter with the Safety Harbor Fire Department and also was a master brick mason like his father and brother. The best day of his life was the day he met Joyce Annette. She gave him what he craved the most, a wonderful family, a solid marriage, friendship, partnership and a life that few people will ever witness. He always wanted to try new things. With his wife by his side, they were successful business owners, and owned Fireside Fireplaces and Dan-D Radiator in Homosassa and J&D Surplus in Carrabelle.

Jessica Bond Dennis Delmain Mildred Gergovich Obituaries Womens baseball star, movie inspirer Davis dies Associated PressLOS ANGELES Lavonne Pepper PaireDavis, a star of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s and an inspiration for the central character in the movie A League of Their Own, has died, her son said Sunday. Paire-Davis died of natural causes in the Van Nuys section of Los Angeles on Saturday, her son, William Davis, told The Associated Press. She was 88. Paire-Davis was a model for the character played by Geena Davis in the 1992 hit A League of Their Own, which also starred Rosie ODonnell, Madonna and Tom Hanks as the crusty manager who shouted the famous line, Theres no crying in baseball! In 1944, Paire-Davis joined the league, created out of fear that World War II would interrupt Major League Baseball, and played for 10 seasons. She was a catcher and shortstop, and helped her teams win five championships. She chronicled her adventures in the 2009 book Dirt in the Skirt. I know what its like for your dream to come true; mine did, PaireDavis said in an AP story in 1995, when she was 70. Baseball was the thing I had the most fun doing. It was like breathing. The All American Girls Baseball League was founded in 1943 by Chicago Cubs owner Philip K. Wrigley. Most of the leagues talent came from greater Chicago, but PaireDavis was one of a halfdozen players scouted and chosen from California. The players wore skirts and the teams had cutesy names, but the players kept a genuine big-league schedule, playing 120 games over four months. We played every night of the week, Paire-Davis said, doubleheaders on Sundays and holidays. Match-fixing probe finds 680 suspicious games worldwide Associated Press Lavonne Pepper Paire-Davis is seen June 11, 2010, at Yankee Stadium in New York. Davis, a star of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s and an inspiration for the movie A League of Their Own, has died in Southern California. She was 88. The probe uncovered $10.9 million in profits and $2.7 millionin bribes to players and officials.

Cigna to pay Buffetts firm $2.2BOMAHA, Neb. Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has agreed to cover up to $4 billion in insurance losses for Cigna Corp. in exchange for a $2.2 billion premium. Cigna, which is based in Bloomfield, Conn., announced the reinsurance deal with Berkshire on Monday. Buffetts Omaha-based company, which includes General Reinsurance, and Geico, will cover liabilities related to Cignas minimumdeath and minimum-income benefits businesses. Cigna says its unlikely claims will exceed $4 billion. Cigna said it expects to record a $500 million after-tax charge in the first quarter, but the transaction will allow Cigna to exit these businesses. Argentina orders price freezeBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Argentina announced a two-month price freeze on supermarket products Monday in an effort to stop spiraling inflation. The price freeze applies to every product in all of the nations largest supermarkets a group including Walmart, Carrefour, Coto, Jumbo, Disco and other large chains. The companies trade group, representing 70 percent of the Argentine supermarket sector, reached the accord with Commerce Secretary Guillermo Moreno, the governments news agency Telam reported. The commerce ministry wants consumers to keep receipts and complain to a hotline about any price hikes they see before April 1. Polls show Argentines worry most about inflation, which private economists estimate could reach 30 percent this year. The government says its trying to hold the next union wage hikes to 20 percent, a figure that suggests how little anyone believes the official index that pegs annual inflation at just 10 percent. Economist Soledad Perez Duhalde of the abeceb.com consulting firm predicted on Monday that the price freeze will have only a very shortterm effect, and noted that similar moves in Argentina had failed to control inflation. Consumers shouldnt be surprised if the supermarkets are slow to restock their shelves and offer fewer products for sale, she added. A more effective way to contain inflation would be to reduce government spending, which is financing an expansion of the money supply, and to have a credible price index. The government announced the price freeze on the first business day after the International Monetary Fund formally censured Argentina for putting out inaccurate economic data. S&P expects US lawsuit over ratings WASHINGTON The U.S. government is expected to file civil charges against Standard & Poors Ratings Services, alleging that it improperly gave high ratings to mortgage debt that later plunged in value and helped fuel the 2008 financial crisis. The charges would mark the first enforcement action the government has taken against a major rating agency involving the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. S&P said Monday that the Justice Department had informed the rating agency that it intends to file a civil lawsuit focusing on S&Ps ratings of mortgage debt in 2007. The action does not involve any criminal allegations. Critics have long complained about the governments failure to bring criminal charges against any major Wall Street players involved in the financial crisis. Criminal charges would require a higher burden of proof and carry the threat of jail time. Oracle to buy Acme Packet REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. Oracle will buy Acme Packet Inc., which makes equipment for telecommunications companies, for about $2.1 billion. Acmes gear is used by more than 1,900 service providers and enterprises around the world. Its technology will complement Oracles offerings for telecoms providers, said Citigroup analyst Walter Pritchard. Oracle, a database software maker based in Redwood City, Calif., will pay $29.25 per share for Acme. That represents a 22 percent premium over the Bedford, Mass., companys Friday closing stock price. The companies valued the deal at $1.7 billion, net of Acmes cash.B USINESS C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, F EBRUARY5, 2013 A7 Money & MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,350 1,400 1,450 1,500 1,550 ASONDJ 1,480 1,500 1,520 S&P 500 Close: 1,495.71 Change: -17.46 (-1.2%) 10 DAYS 12,400 12,800 13,200 13,600 14,000 14,400 ASONDJ 13,560 13,820 14,080 Dow Jones industrials Close: 13,880.08 Change: -129.71 (-0.9%) 10 DAYSAdvanced660 Declined2406 New Highs127 New Lows14 Vol. (in mil.)3,298 Pvs. Volume3,813 1,819 1,962 575 1914 129 13 NYSE NASD DOW14009.7913866.8313880.08-129.71-0.93%+5.92% DOW Trans.5868.195800.305820.31-36.92-0.63%+9.68% DOW Util.474.53471.00471.36-3.17-0.67%+4.03% NYSE Comp.8910.008848.108852.82-112.30-1.25%+4.85% NASDAQ3169.633130.573131.17-47.93-1.51%+3.70% S&P5001513.171495.021495.71-17.46-1.15%+4.87% S&P4001101.591089.121091.27-10.32-0.94%+6.94% Wilshire 500015979.1615786.1915794.41-184.75-1.16%+5.33% Russell 2000911.18898.36899.28-11.92-1.31%+5.88% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

The food distributors fiscal secondquarter net income fell 11.6 percent due to higher costs related to turning around the company.

They followed a surge Friday that pushed the Dow over 14,000 for the first time since 2007, before the financial meltdown that routed world markets. Friday was only the tenth time in its history that the Dow closed above 14,000. The first was in July 2007; the rest were in October of that year. The index closed Friday just 155 points shy of its record high, set that October. The rally was powered by solid economic data, including a January jobs report that showed the labor market is strengthening gradually. A broad measure of manufacturing also rose sharply. The Dow is up nearly 6 percent this year. Yet Wall Streets celebratory mood was a distant memory Monday, as U.S. stocks followed European markets lower. Frances CAC-40 closed down 3 percent, Germanys DAX 2.5 percent. It started to look like things in the market are maybe getting a little ahead of themselves, compared to some of the data weve seen, said Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Asset Management Group. He said problems in Europe are also beginning to affect U.S. markets after several quiet months. Borrowing costs for Italy and Spain rose Monday, Stone noted, reflecting concerns among bond investors that those countries may be unable to meet their financial obligations. It kind of restarts some of the old worries that weve been able to ignore for quite some time, Stone said. In New York, Merck & Co. was among the Dows biggest losers, dropping 98 cents, or 2.3 percent, to $40.85. The pharmaceutical company said Friday that its earnings declined in the fourth quarter and 2013 might be weaker than analysts had hoped. Dow hits milestone, then takes plunge Associated PressWASHINGTON Interest rates on short-term Treasury bills were mixed in Mondays auction, with rates on three-month bills falling to the lowest level in four weeks while rates on six-month bills were unchanged. The Treasury Department auctioned $32 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.07 percent, down from 0.075 percent last week. Another $28 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.110 percent, unchanged from last week. The three-month rate was the lowest since three-month bills averaged 0.065 percent on Jan. 7. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the threemonth price was $9,998.23 while a six-month bill sold for $9,994.44. That would equal an annualized rate of 0.071 percent for the three-month bills and 0.112 percent for the sixmonth bills. Separately, the Federal Reserve said Monday that the average yield for oneyear Treasury bills, a popular index for making changes in adjustable rate mortgages, was unchanged at 0.15 percent last week, the same as the previous week.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 Support our country Have you noticed that there are people who write about matters that deal with unjust judges? Unfortunately they usually involve people in the government who have a job where they need to keep their mouths shut. When they dont, they wonder why they are vulnerable and end up in prison. Its no shock to me that they end up in trouble with the law. We have laws and secret and very high clearances on the books, and they must be adhered to. When we are at war, we particularly must learn to keep our mouths shut; otherwise, we could involve others who are in the military and they could end up dead or wounded. Its happened before. This is our country and we need to support it at all cost. Ruth J. Anderson Homosassa Blame courts We are fast to put the blame on guns for crimes. Lets put the blame where it belongs: the court system. A convicted felon gets caught doing a crime, not (the) first time. Hes in possession of guns he knows hes not supposed to have. He says they belong to another person. I think the law says hes not supposed to have any in his home. We all know if hes dealing in drugs, hes protecting his living. Lets get the courts to do their job and get the felons off the street instead of just slapping their hands and putting them back on the streets. Leave the honest gun owners alone. Harold DeLosh Crystal River A nd so it came, the coup de grace. The final barrier to opportunities for women in combat is no more. With a stroke of their pens, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin E. Dempsey decreed that no battlefield mission or military role is off-limits to females. The defense secretary and the general thus liberated mothers, daughters, sisters and wives to kill and be killed in the infantry, commando raids, even in Obama administration overseas contingency operations. In so doing, they also slashed away at that last institutional protection for the space that separates men and women, where civilization once grew. It (civilization) has been struggling there for decades, as social engineers and radical feminists all heirs to Marx have been cutting away at elemental human instinct, social grace, language and thought itself. This overhaul of manners and mores, the family structure and marriage even private aspects of the relationship between men and women has been successful to a point where the cultural argument against women in combat (women in the military being a lost cause) is rarely voiced, not even on the right. (I watched Fox News on women-incombat announcement day, listening in vain for just one culture warrior.) We are left to make only the utilitarian arguments body strength and speed, unit cohesion, even urinary tract infections and other hazards that front-line deployment pose to females. These are compellingly logical points, but they are unlikely to reverse an ideological juggernaut. When the secretary of defense says putting women in combat is about making our military ... and America stronger and no one says hes lying to further a Marxian ideal via social engineering, the cultural argument is lost, and the culture it comes from is bound and gagged, hostage to what we know as political correctness. I still see threads of the cultural argument in emails and some blog responses to the Pentagons latest whack at creating gender neutrality. It erupts like a reflex against the conditioning to deny differences defined, at their essence, by muscle mass and womb. Such conditioning erodes the male protective instinct which, surely, is what war is supposed to arise from and the female nurturing instinct, which surely is what a civilization depends on. No more. Women with wombs and without manly muscle mass now count as Pentagon-approved warriors, modern-day knights in Kevlar, soon to be humping 80-pound packs over mountain and desert. Or maybe not. Didnt Gen. Dempsey indicate dropping some of those old-fashioned strength and speed requirements might be in order? If we do decide that a particular standard is so high that a woman couldnt make it, Dempsey said last week, the burden is now on the service to come back and explain to the secretary, why is it that high? Does it really have to be that high? Of course not! Why train Navy SEALs when Navy OTTERs will do as well? And what about their children, when these front-line warriors bear them? And their pregnancies, when they decide its better for their mission, for their country, to terminate them? Dont think Daddy Government, once again, wont be a steady provider to his womenfolk. And why not? It is women who pass on the culture, my daughters pediatrician a font of human wisdom after six of his own kids and endless patients used to tell me, his voice rising over baby girls screaming. But what kind of gender-neutral culture will they pass on? Rather, what kind of genderneutral culture have women already passed on? After all, this penultimate shift at the Pentagon (will the NFL be next?) is just the tail end of something, not the beginning the rewiring of the human spirit. In other words, the whole movement in the name of equal rights has no more to do with women being legally able to apply for a credit card and other aspects of equality before the law than ordering women into combat is about making the military and America stronger. No, its about behavioral manipulation and transformation the Equal Rights Amendment by executive fiat. These changes have been a long time coming. In my lifetime, I have watched even post-1960s standards of femininity, for example, plunge to a point where female tendencies toward privacy, intimacy and modesty have given way to norms of clinical-style revelation and numbing brazenness and Im talking about todays nice girls, the ones who soon will be considered eligible for Selective Service. Yes, I know, only 15 percent of our all-volunteer military is female even after decades of active government courtship to woo women into the ranks and make a force that looks like America (not Obamas Cabinet), as Bill Clinton has put it. But dont think this opportunity for the few comes without strings to the many. As Army Col. Ellen Haring pointed out on PBS NewsHour last week, With full rights come full responsibilities. And then what? Will genderneutral raw recruits soon be brawling outside the bar (with the man beating the snot out of the woman, as one Iraq veteran recently suggested to me in an email)? Will gender-neutral male soldiers be trained out of their protective instinct toward women? Do we want to live with the results? One senior officer with multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan wrote this to me: I would never want my mother, sisters, wife or daughter to have to experience the ravages of combat or, worse, become a prisoner of war. It goes against every fiber of my being. Yesterdays man. For a better tomorrow, we need more like him.

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 G.I. JANE Proceed prudently with combat role expansion D uring the past decade, women have regularly been exposed to combat in Iraq and Afghanistan while serving in support roles. Acquitting themselves with courage and distinction, more than 150 women made the ultimate sacrifice, with more than 800 wounded. Given their proven performance in combat support roles, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, at the urging of the militarys Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently lifted the 1994 ban on women serving in close combat roles. The controversial issue raised by the lifting of the ban is not the exposure of women to enemy action, but whether they should participate in close combat with Army and Marine infantry units. Charged with the mission of closing with the enemy in order to kill or destroy them, infantry units, in aggressively taking the fight to the enemy, are often deployed in prolonged operations for weeks and months in a physically punishing environment, compounded by the most primitive living, personal hygiene and individual privacy conditions one could envisage. With the demands of the infantry battlefield far greater than the combat support arena, the lifting of the close combat ban raises two central concerns: the ability of women to sustain performance to the same physical standards required of infantrymen, and the creation of a sexually charged climate that could pose a risk to female service members, as well as good order and discipline on the battlefield. Recognizing women have about half the upper-body strength of men, Army and Marine basic physical fitness tests have different upperbody standards for men and women. Also, as affirmed by basic training statistics, women are more prone to stress fractures than males. Accordingly, the ability of women to hoist and methodically carry a 65-pound or heavier load on their backs, for long distances required of infantrymen, is questionable. With women comprising 14 percent of the armed forces, sexual assault is a major discipline problem. During the very week that Secretary Panetta lifted the close combat ban, the Pentagon reported 2,900 sexual assaults last year, an increase of nearly 9 percent, with close to two-thirds involving rape or aggravated assault. The Pentagon further estimated that 23 to 28 percent of female service members will be sexually assaulted at least once during the course of their service. With the odds of female service members being sexually assaulted by their fellow servicemen greater than their chances of being injured in combat, combining lifethreatening danger with underlying sexual tensions in a primeval environment particularly poses a risk to both the women assigned to infantry units and the good order and discipline essential for survival on the battlefield. Despite the lifting of the ban, numerous surveys of female service members indicate very few will seek the rigors of close combat. Nevertheless, for the few who do, the militarys uniformed and civilian leaders must prudently consider the physical differences between the sexes and the power of their attractions. Survival and victory on the battlefield cannot allow otherwise. THE ISSUE: Women in close combat.OUR OPINION: Good intentions may have battlefield consequences.

Oh my goodness, I cant believe that at least four people were so outraged at such an obviously tongue-incheek question about toasting manatees that they had to call in to complain. It just goes to show you that there are a lot of people around here that have no sense of humor. Calling others stupid and that you should be ashamed of yourself? One even said people should not take things literally. Whos the one who shouldnt be taking things literally? Personally, I enjoyed both the headline and the Sound Off in regard to the headline. So heres an answer to the question: I hear they taste like toasted chicken. Ha, ha. Have a good day.Port still confusingIn todays paper, Jan. 30, the editors note said the reason they want a port is to create jobs. OK, so the port is built, nothing shipped in, nothing shipped out. What becomes of the jobs? What uses it, really?Stop fretting You printed a lot of letters for and against the port. We do not need, want or cant accommodate a port, i.e., the barge canal. Useless money spent. For the ruling force of Citrus County, we are forced to do what they say. How much should we stand for? Even voting the port out does not stop them. The Citrus County boys do what they want, when they want. We have nothing to do about it. So quit worrying.

I assume he was indicating the $20,000 variety. I think that Mr. Art Jones and his volunteers and the publicity they got, I think it would just make us a shoo-in for that money, that Horizon oil spill money The sanitary system constructions meet every requirement for that moneyOne inexcusable fact due to the Progress Energy tax deal, were going to be hit with a another tax here in the county. The inspections and mainly the large costs of repairing a failed system of septic tanks is just going to be a whole lot to bear. Now in talking to folks, they would support some additional revenue for a sanitary system, and, to borrow a phrase from Congress, to just keep kicking the can on down the road. Now Ive always believed a pound of wisdom, theres 11 ounces out of a pound of wisdom thats nothing but common sense. I hope we can use it in this case.Pediatrician articlesI certainly enjoy reading the weekly articles by the physicians in the county. Im wondering if there is a pediatrician that would like to volunteer to write articles weekly about children and their general health.Gluten-free bread availableThis message is for the person needing gluten-free bread. I was able to find it for my family in Sweetbay in Crystal River. They have a section of it there. Also, the new Walmart in Lecanto has a section of gluten-free and in the freezer section of Crystal River Publix, they have gluten-free bread. Hope this helps.Dont trash it up I am a 71-year-old woman. I took up walking for my health. The first day I walked, I could hardly stand looking at the trash on the sides of the street. The second day, I brought a garbage bag and a glove. I picked up one side of the street. And on day three, I picked up the other side of the street. It really looked so nice and green and clean. I was so proud. On day four, the garbage had already started to accumulate here and there. I want to make a suggestion: Every automobile driver should carry a grocery bag under the seat. When they have the urge to discard the cans, bottles, McDonalds bags, clothes, cigarette boxes and any other trash, put it in the bag and take it out at your own home and discard it. Put a new bag in your car. We live in America. It is such a beautiful place to live. Why would anyone want to ruin it? I hope and pray that everyone reads this. Thank God we live in the United States of America, the most beautiful place in the world. Helmet law puzzler If there are any Florida legislators out there reading this column, please help me understand why the driver of an automobile surrounded by two tons of steel and many, many airbags must wear a seatbelt, whereas a motorcycle driver can cruise down the highway, protected by nothing, and is not required to wear a helmet.

Thanks Mr. KriegerI would like to make a comment about the letter from Mr. Krieger in Mondays paper (Feb. 4). He is right on. Thank you. Sound OFF Letters to the EDITOR Congress wants your guns What a great point and counterpoint in the Sunday, Jan. 27, Chronicle You will never see a better contrast between the workings of the liberal and the conservative mind. John McFadden starts us off with some hard facts on guns and murders in his column Testing amendment. John Read cant get past the first 50 words in his column, Its the guns, stupid, before he starts losing ground. His description of the .223 round as especially lethal shows a lack of knowledge and research on the subject. I would ask John, lethal compared to what? Its never good to be shot by anything, and any round has the potential to be fatal, but to call the .223 especially lethal is liberal distortion at its best. If he had said it has twice the energy of a .22 Hornet and half the energy of a .308 Winchester, we could have a conversation. The point is, it is one of the least lethal of the center fire rounds. John Read goes on to say that some groups to the right of the NRA think automatic weapons should be legal again. They are legal. You can own and shoot them. Its all legal. John McFadden gets right to the point when he points out the Obama administration means to test the Second Amendment. Their goal is the complete confiscation of all weapons from all private citizens. If you dont believe that, let me repeat this quote from Sen. Diane Feinstein, the author of the 1994 assault weapons ban and the author of a new one proposed for 2013. If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them. Mr. and Mrs. American turn em all in. I would have done it. John Read distorts the issue by saying The paranoid fear of tyrannical government is a huge motivator for many thousands of people to stockpile weapons. The Second Amendment is our protection. Do you remember when Obama said We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set. Weve got to have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. Unapproved by Congress and unreported by the liberal media, it has started. Following controversy over its purchase of around 1.2 billion bullets in the last six months alone, the Department of Homeland Security has put out a new solicitation for more than 200 million more rounds of ammunition, some of which are designated to be used by snipers. People wake up.Harley LawrenceHomosassa Hello, our water future is bleak For 25 years I have watched the bureaucrats and politicians dance around the reality of Floridas natural water supply depletion and degradation. I have spent hundreds of hours on the Ocklawaha and Silver Rivers and the Harris Chain of Lakes, where agricultural nutrient loading and arbitrary water flow controls did one thing increased the poor quality of the ninelake system to the point that Lake Apopka could only support two things: a 90 percent biomass of shad and an algae bloom cycle that seldom allowed more visibility than 1 foot and obliterated sunshine penetration at 2 feet below the surface. As a child, I remember vividly the astounding numbers of fish, including two to three saltwater varieties that Silver Springs and its outflow hosted. I remember the small pond behind our Alachua area farm house that was fed by an artesian well roiling persistently and offgassing sulphur fumes that made me gag. However, my grandfather thought this place was the Fountain of Youth. Last Saturday, we attended a meeting of the Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc., in Yankeetown, to hear a presentation by Dr. Bob Knight, founder and director of the Florida Springs Institute. Armed with facts, logical examination of historic data and common sense, Bob Knight presents an irrefutable analysis of the Floridan Aquifers status and the states water supply. There are approximately 10,000 springs and/or natural wells across the state. There are 27 springs of 1st magnitude. Two of these are classic examples of overuse of the aquifer ground water resource. Silver Springs at one time was the leader in water flow and Rainbow Springs outflow, though less in gallons per day, paralleled that of Silver Springs; i.e. when flows increased in Silver they did likewise with Rainbow Springs. Decreased flows mirrored the same pattern. Today, outflow for Silver Springs has fallen to such a point that Rainbow Springs daily outflow actually exceeds Silver Springs. Water consumption surrounding the Ocala area has reached a point where as water extraction from the aquifer exceeds recharge, natural outflow at the surface continues to fall. In Jacksonville/Duval, water consumption has lowered the aquifer enough that the greater pressure from the surrounding aquifer system of South Georgia and to the west in the Suwannee River watershed are now flowing east to the Jacksonville area and causing interdicted spring flows and historic low water levels in the Suwannee River and surrounding area. Ask people in the Big Bend if the quality of their oysters has degraded recently. If you recall, its only been in recent years that Tampa Bay began searching desperately for a replacement source for their water supply. Theyve even come to our back yard proposing to pipe our water south from the Withlacoochee! Dr. Knight also revealed the awful fact that Consumptive Use Permits for Agriculture, Business and Residential appear to represent a solid mass on the topographical map of the area from Ocala to our part of the west coast. These permits issued by our water management districts cost the applicants very little in fees; and the millions of dollars in our public water supply that they pump out cost them nothing into perpetuity. We are ignoring the obvious. We are inviting a natural disaster that knows no scope of limits. If we allow the Water Management Districts and the Florida legislature to continue with present water policy we only have ourselves to blame. Steve Kesterson Sr. Inglis Contradiction on crime Bob Wardrop has a whole list of list complaints, which he blames on the nations social ills (which) have contributed to explosions in its financial ills. (Citrus CountyChronicle Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013). Marriage between homosexuals in several states and the percent to 50 percent of teens (who) are sexually active are apparently part and parcel of our national debt, according to Waldrop; but, for the sake of me, I dont how. He is likely right when he points out that ,000 15-to-19-year-old (single) females (who) become pregnant add somewhat to the debt. But he contradicts himself, when he says, the estimated (750,000 to 1 million fetuses) from abortion also add to the debt. About those abortions, the writer said while nearly 3,000 people died in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, almost the same number of unborn children are murdered in America every day. Au contraire! Murder in the United States of America is a crime; abortion is not. I mean, will someone next be calling Floridas sales taxation thievery?James McIntosh Lecanto

Judge knocks school funding AUSTIN, Texas The system Texas uses to fund public schools violates the states constitution by not providing enough money to school districts and failing to distribute it fairly, a judge ruled Monday in a landmark decision that could force the Legislature to overhaul the way it pays for education. Moments after closing arguments in his packed courtroom, state District Judge John Dietz ruled the funding mechanism does not meet the Texas Constitutions requirements for a fair and efficient system that provides a general diffusion of knowledge. He declared that funding was inadequate and that there were wide discrepancies in state support received by school districts in wealthy parts of Texas versus those in poorer areas. He also said the system is tantamount to an income tax, which is forbidden by the state constitution. It was the second time in less than a decade the state has been ordered to remake its school finance system. Scout leaders mull policy change IRVING, Texas The Boy Scouts of Americas national executive board began three days of closed meetings Monday that are expected to include a discussion of its policy excluding gay members and leaders, and Scouts on both sides of the debate are publically weighing in.

Jodi Arias testimony was a surprise move by defense attorneys in a sensational murder trial in Phoenix that has become a daily fixture on cable news with its lurid stories of sex, lies, religion, betrayal and violence. Arias, 32, could become just the fourth woman on Arizonas death row if convicted. Arias testimony aimed to portray her as a childhood abuse victim and naive teenager who stayed with boyfriends even after they cheated on her and became violent at times.

Canada begins phasing out penny TORONTO Canada started phasing out its penny, the nuisance coins that clutter dressers and cost more than their onecent value to produce. The Royal Canadian Mint on Monday officially ended its distribution of pennies to financial institutions.

Check stirs anger in VenezuelaCARACAS, Venezuela Venezuelas opposition is demanding that the government explain how a former Iranian official ended up with a check in Venezuelan currency worth about $70 million. Venezuelas opposition coalition said in a statement on Monday that the government should clear up why the Iranian had a check for 300 million Venezuelan bolivars that was found by German customs authorities. The German newspaper Bild am Sonntag reported in its Sunday edition that the man who was trying to enter Germany with the check was Tahmasb Mazaheri, Irans former central bank chief. The weekly reported customs officials at Duesseldorf airport found the check in his luggage on Jan. 21 upon his arrival from Turkey, and that Mazaheri told authorities the money was to be used for the construction of 10,000 apartments funded by the Venezuelan government. President Hugo Chavezs government has built close ties with Irans government in recent years.

Authorities stormed an underground bunker Monday in Alabama, freeing a 5year-old boy who had been held hostage for nearly a week in the tiny backyard shelter and leaving the boys abductor dead. After days of fruitless negotiations, talks had deteriorated with an increasingly agitated Jimmy Lee Dykes, who had kidnapped the child from a school bus after fatally shooting the driver. Dykes had been seen with a gun, and officers concluded the boy was in imminent danger, said Steve Richardson of the FBIs office in Mobile. Officials refused to say how the 65-year-old died. Ever since this started, theres never been a moment that (the boy) wasnt on my mind, said Michael Senn, pastor of a church near where reporters had been camped out since the standoff began. So when I heard that he was OK, it was just like a thousand pounds lifted off of me. The rescue capped a long drama that drew national attention to this town of 2,400 people nestled amid peanut farms and cotton fields that has long relied on a strong Christian faith, a policy of love thy neighbor and the power of group prayer. The childs plight prompted nightly candlelight vigils. Throughout the ordeal, authorities had been speaking with Dykes though a plastic pipe that went into the shelter. They also sent food, medicine and other items into the bunker, which apparently had running water, heat and cable television but no toilet. It was about 4 feet underground, with about 50 square feet of floor space. Authorities said the kindergartner appeared unharmed. He was taken to a hospital in nearby Dothan. Officials have said he has Aspergers syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Eddie Ray Routh, 25, is charged with one count of capital murder and two counts of murder in the shooting deaths of ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, author of the best-selling book American Sniper, and his friend Chad Littlefield at a shooting range Saturday. Authorities said the three men arrived at the sprawling Rough Creek Lodge in Glen Rose on Saturday afternoon, and a hunting guide discovered the bodies of Kyle and Littlefield about two hours later and called 911. They were shot multiple times, and numerous guns were at the scene, according to an Erath County arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA-TV. Routh then drove Kyles pickup to his sisters house in Midlothian and told her that he killed two people, and she called police, the affidavit says. Routh also said he wanted to drive to Oklahoma to avoid Texas authorities, the affidavit says. Routh was arrested after a short police pursuit in Lancaster, where he lives. Police records from Lancaster show Routh was taken to mental hospital on Sept. 2 after threatening to kill his family and then commit suicide. Authorities found Routh walking nearby with no shirt and no shoes, and smelling of alcohol. Routh told authorities he was a Marine veteran who was suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder. Eddie stated he was hurting and that his family does not understand what he has been through, the report said. Rouths mother told police that her son had been drinking and became upset when his father said he was going to sell his gun. She said Routh began arguing with them and said he was going to blow his brains out. Police took Routh to Green Oaks Hospital for psychiatric care. Dallas police records show Routh was taken back to the same mental hospital Jan. 19 after a woman called police and said she feared for Rouths safety. Routh is on suicide watch in the Erath County Jail, where hes being held on $3 million bond, Sheriff Tommy Bryant said. Vet who shot sniper was troubled Affidavit: Accused killer said he traded his soul for truck Associated PressLEICESTER, England He was king of England, but for centuries he lay without shroud or coffin in an unknown grave, and his name became a byword for villainy. On Monday, scientists announced they had rescued the remains of Richard III from anonymity and the monarchs fans hope a revival of his reputation will soon follow. In a dramatically orchestrated news conference, a team of archaeologists, geneticists, genealogists and other scientists from the University of Leicester announced that tests had proven what they scarcely dared to hope a scarred and broken skeleton unearthed under a drab municipal parking lot was that of the 15th-century king, the last English monarch to die in battle. Lead archaeologist Richard Butler said that a battery of tests proved beyond reasonable doubt that the remains were the kings. Lin Foxhall, head of the universitys school of archaeology, said the discovery could end up rewriting a little bit of history in a big way. Few monarchs have seen their reputations decline as much after death as Richard III. He ruled England between 1483 and 1485, during the decades-long battle over the throne known as the Wars of the Roses, which pitted two wings of the ruling Plantagenet dynasty York and Lancaster against one another. After his death, historians writing under the victorious Tudors comprehensively trashed Richards reputation, accusing him of myriad crimes most famously, the murder of his two nephews, the Princes in the Tower. William Shakespeare indelibly depicted Richard as a hunchbacked usurper who left a trail of bodies on his way to the throne before dying in battle, shouting My kingdom for a horse. That view was repeated by many historians, and Richard remains a villain in the popular imagination. But others say Richards reputation was unjustly smeared by his Tudor successors. Philippa Langley of the Richard III Society which seeks to restore the late kings reputation and backed the search for his grave said that for centuries Richards story has been told by others, many of them hostile. She hopes a new surge of interest, along with evidence from the skeleton about how the king lived and died and how he was mistreated after death will help restore his reputation. A wind of change is blowing, one that will seek out the truth about the real Richard III, she said. Langley, who helped launch the search for the king, said she could scarcely believe her quest had paid off. Remains of Richard III found Reviled king made famous by Shakespeare

The Miami New Times reported last week that Rodriguez bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America LLC, a nowclosed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, near Rodriguezs offseason home. The new public relations firm for the three-time AL MVP issued a statement denying the allegations. I dont comment on anyone until they speak first, Jeter said Monday. Let him address his situation before I comment on it. Let him speak first and then well talk about that. Rodriguez admitted four years ago that he used PEDs from 2001-03. He had hip surgery last month and is expected to be sidelined until after the All-Star break.Indiana moves back into No. 1 in AP poll For the fifth straight week there is a new No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll. This time its Indiana. The Hoosiers, the preseason No. 1 who held the top spot for the first five weeks of the regular season, moved up two spots Monday, following their weekend win over No. 1 Michigan and No. 2 Kansas loss to Oklahoma State. Duke started the current streak of new No. 1s and was followed by Louisville, Duke again, Michigan and Indiana. The last time there were five straight new No. 1s was the last five polls of 2008-09 when it was Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Connecticut again, North Carolina and Louisville. The Hoosiers received 58 first-place votes from the 65member national media panel while Florida, which jumped two spots to second, got the other seven. See page B3 for the full list.

Judges selected to hear Bonds appeal SAN FRANCISCO Barry Bonds felony obstruction of justice conviction is in the hands of three federal appeals court judges who were each appointed by a different Democratic president. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday unveiled its February schedule, which showed publicly for the first time the three judges assigned to Bonds case. Senior judges Mary Schroeder and Michael Daly Hawkins, along with Judge Mary Murguia, will hear oral arguments Feb. 13. Jimmy Carter appointed Schroeder in 1979. She wrote an opinion in 2010 barring the testimony of a former Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative executive from Bonds trial. Bonds was still convicted of giving misleading testimony about his steroid use to a grand jury. He appealed. Bill Clinton appointed Hawkins in 1994. President Barack Obama appointed Murguia in 2010. From wire reports Panthers, Canes: Only one will remain S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentTheres a certainty entering boys basketball district play: At least one county school will advance into the regional playoffs. No. 2-seeded Citrus and third-seeded Lecanto face off Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the semifinal round of the 6A-6 tournament at Central, with the victor getting a regional berth and moving on to play the winner between top-seeded West Port and either No. 4 seed Central (7-16) or No. 5 Springstead (416) for the district title at 7 p.m. Friday. The Hurricanes (14-10 overall) and Panthers (17-6) each claimed a home meeting with one another to split their regular-season series. Lecanto is seeking a second consecutive district title, and has won four straight games since falling to the Wolf Pack for the second time this season. Panthers head coach Frank Vilardi was most concerned about his teams health heading into the tournament, with standout senior Richie Rizzolo out with a back injury for much of the season and senior center Geoffrey Ruiz dealing with a broken thumb, as well as the flu hitting a couple of players. Its going to be tough. Citrus is a great team, and weve had some great battles with them, Vilardi said last week. Were looking forward to getting into the districts and seeing what we can do. Weve got to get healthy. Citrus lost three of its past four contests, but with big offensive production from junior Devin Pryor and sophomore Desmond Franklin recently handed West Port its second district loss of the season to clinch the second seed. We get to wear our white jerseys, Citrus coach Tom Densmore said with a laugh after the victory, noting his squads hometeam status in the opening round.

Left in the dark Lady Pirates issue 17-1 broadside Game called after four innings S TEVE M C G UNNIGLE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER If the first game of the regular season is any indication of what she can expect from her team, firstyear head coach Lanna Wentworth doesnt have much to worry about. The Crystal River Lady Pirates softball team opened up 2013 with a 17-1 rout of visiting Trinity Catholic on Monday night in a mercy-ruleshortened four innings. Contributions came from every spot in the order as Crystal River (1-0) batted around in the second inning, with every hitter reaching base and scoring before Trinity Catholic (0-1) could record the first out. The Lady Pirates jumped out to a 12-1 lead by the time the inning was over. Two innings later, RBI singles from Laynee Nadal and pinch hitter Samantha Jenkins sealed the quickened victory over Trinity Catholic starting pitcher Cassandra Lawler (four innings, 11 earned runs, 16 hits, two walks, three strikeouts). The Celtics grabbed an early 1-0 lead on a Lawler single up the middle, scoring Holly Hagans, who led off the game with a base hit. But in the bottom half, Marissa Pool blasted a two-out triple down the left-field line to the fence. Danielle Gomez followed with a single to left, scoring Pool, and an outfield error allowed Gomez to come all the way to the plate, making it 2-1 Crystal River. Then the floodgates opened. Base hits by Bridget Whitley and McCale Wilson were followed by Catherine Desomma reaching on an error to load the bases with none out. Whitley and Wilson both scored on passed balls, and Chloe Lane came up with an infield single to reload the bases. Pool promptly unloaded them, roping a two-run single to left to make it 6-1. Gomez drove in Pool on an infield single, two more runs came around on wild pitches and Whitley came through for a second time in the inning with a two-run line drive down the left-field line, making Still unclear why abnormality occurred Associated PressNEW ORLEANS As the Superdomes energy provider and stadium management try to determine what caused a 34-minute power outage at Sundays Super Bowl, local officials are hoping the incident wont leave a black eye on the city or prevent the leagues big game from coming back to town. Larry Roedel, a lawyer for the state board that oversees the Superdome, said Monday that the outage did not appear to be related to work done on the stadiums electrical system in December. The work, approved by the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District last fall, replaced feeder equipment connecting the stadium to power provider Entergy New Orleans. Entergy and the company that manages the Superdome, SMG, said Sunday that an abnormality occurred where stadium equipment intersects with an Entergy electric feed, causing a breaker to create the outage. It remained unclear Monday exactly what the abnormality was or why it occurred. But Doug Thornton, manager of the Superdome, called the outage an equipment error, not a human one. He said that when the power outage hit, meters indicated the stadium was drawing less power than it does during a typical New Orleans Saints game. The air conditioning system was running, he said, but on less power than it does in September. Thornton said millions of dollars have been spent upgrading electrical equipment in the building since Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, and none of it failed. He said it was working properly when power was restored. He also said there is no evidence that the halftime show had anything to do with the outage, which struck early in the third quarter. He said the show used its own dedicated generator and wasnt using the Superdomes power supply. Mayor Mitch Landrieu told WWL-AM on Monday that the city still wants to make a bid Associated PressNEW ORLEANS The NFL says there was a plan B to finish the Super Bowl on Sunday night. The Superdome had a backup power system that was about to be used during the NFL championships electrical outage, but it wasnt needed because power started coming back at that time, Commissioner Roger Goodell said. The NFL has contingency plans for game interruptions, regardless of the cause. The 34-minute Super Bowl delay occurred when a piece of monitoring equipment sensed an abnormality in the electrical load feeding the dome, officials have said. But the game wasnt in danger of being postponed because of the backup system. That was not a consideration last night, NFL vice president of business operations Eric Grubman said at a news NFL says it was ready with backup system Citrus is a great team, and weve had some great battles with them.

You can do that, right? Maybe did do that, in high school, and havent felt your spikes scraping the track on the homestretch, under the stadium lights, in far too long. Heres your chance. Lecanto High School invites all to the inaugural Nature Coast Legends of the Spring track and field meet on Saturday, Feb. 16, at Lecanto Stadium. Lecanto girls track team head coach Robbie Thompson is organizing the event and hosting after longtime Citrus County track coaches Freddie Bullock and Dan Epstein approached him with the idea. Thompson is eager to encourage all comers to join in on the festivities, spreading the love of track and field throughout the area and to people of all ages. Our goal with this is to make a meet that we do every year and that people want to come to, Thompson said. Weve had a lot of success with the younger kids at the All Comers meet that weve done here at Lecanto, and we want to keep that going. In other words, Thompson said, this is promoting track and field. (And) for the sake of the kids, like me, who did track (in high school) and never did it again, its kind of a way for those people who love track to come out and relive that experience. And hopefully we can share that experience with others.

Associated Press Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade goes up for a shot Monday against Charlotte Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson during the first half in Miami. Associated Press Members of the Mediapolis High School girls basketball team pose for a photo Feb. 1 in Mediapolis, Iowa. The dynamic of one of Iowas best high school basketball teams is defined by an extraordinary coincidence of five sets of sisters. Front row: Allison Hedges, Darby Massner, Heidi Hillyard, Rachel Holsteen, Aubrey Siegle. Back row: Ashley Hedges, Allie Massner, Haley Hillyard, Jessica Holsteen, Chloe Siegle. Associated PressMEDIAPOLIS, Iowa You could say the girls on the Mediapolis High School basketball team are like sisters to each other. And theres a good chance youd be right. The Bullettes feature four sets of sisters on a team that is 20-1 and ranked seventh in Iowa for its class. That doesnt even count Aubrey Siegle and her sibling, Chloe, the team manager. The girls recently won their conference and could become the first Mediapolis squad since 1987 to earn a berth in the eight-team state tournament finals. Youve played with them growing up, so you can guess what theyre going to do. You know what kind of player they are, said senior Allison Hedges, whose sister Ashley is a freshman on the team. You know what move theyre going to make. In fact, sibling intuition is often the best play in the Mediapolis playbook. Post player Haley Hillyard recalled getting stuck in the corner with a pass thrown by her little sister, Heidi, during a recent practice. Haley figured Heidis next move was a sharp cut to the basket, even though Haley seemed boxed in. Without a word and barely a glance, Haley chucked it through traffic and to Heidi for a layup. Those moments happen quite a lot. Mediapolis is a rural farming town of about 1,500 tucked in the southeast corner of the state, just west of the Mississippi River, with a quiet Main Street anchored by diners, a post office and the local paper. Despite its size, the town has always been something of a hotbed for girls basketball. The school qualified for the state tournament in 6-on-6 basketball 21 times between 1962 and 1987 under coach Vernon McLearn, an Iowa legend. The atrium of the school, within sight of a pair of cornfields, is decorated with dozens of plaques and trophies celebrating the teams storied past, and the girls pass by that shrine every day on the way to the gym. It doesnt stop at hoops, either. Four sets of these sisters play on the volleyball team, which made it all the way to the state semifinals. Three of the pairs are also cousins. Were each others biggest criticizers. Like, if youre doing something wrong (wed say), Well, you should have drove, you should have not done that. Well tell each other because were sisters. Nobody else is going to say anything about it, Haley Hillyard said. According to Rachel Holsteen, living under the same roof also helps. They can get mad at you, but they have to get over it sometime, she said.

The Heat improved to 19-3 on their home floor. Ramon Sessions scored 18 points for Charlotte, which lost its fourth in a row and 12th in the last 14. Ben Gordon had 16 points as six Bobcats players scored in double digits. Neither team shot well on 3pointers as Miami was 1 for 12 and Charlotte 8 of 25.

Following a timeout, Kemba Walker missed a 3-pointer and James grabbed a rebound, then drove for a layup to give Miami a six-point lead with 37 seconds left. Charlotte got no closer than five points the rest of the way. James had 21 points on 9-of10 shooting through three quarters to help Miami take a 66-63 lead. Knicks 99, Pistons 85 NEW YORK Tyson Chandler tied a franchise record with his third straight 20-rebound game, Carmelo Anthony scored 27 points, and the New York Knicks beat the Detroit Pistons 99-85 on Monday night for their fifth consecutive victory. In a game that was decided early, Chandler played long enough to grab his 20th rebound midway through the fourth quarter. After grabbing 20 in victories on Friday and Saturday night, he became the first Knicks player since Hall of Famer Willis Reed in December 1969 to have 20 in three straight games.

S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE conference Monday. That is not what was at play. Goodell was sitting with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie during the game. The Meadowlands will host next years Super Bowl. We already had the conversation, Goodell said about avoiding a repeat of the blackout. This is clearly something that can be fixed, and its clearly something that we can prepare for. And we will. Grubman said Goodell has the sole authority to enforce any contingency plans, and was in perfect position to do so Sunday night. He was there and he had the full reports, Grubman said. We were quickly able to determine we did not have a situation that would cause a permanent interruption in the game. There were no safety issues, we had multiple equipment and sources of power. And if they didnt? While declining to be specific, Grubman said the league has backup plans for continuing the game. Those plans all focus on playing the full 60 minutes, regardless of whether it is the same day or on another day. So its unlikely that the Ravens, ahead 28-6 at the time of the partial blackout, would have simply been declared the winners and awarded the Lombardi Trophy. In the end, Baltimore still won, beating San Francisco 34-31. it 11-1. Everybody contributed, everybody did what they needed to do, said Wentworth. I think we will see a lot of offense from our team. Pool went 3 for 4 with a double, triple, two RBI and four runs scored. Nadal (2 for 4, double, two RBI, two runs), Gomez (2 for 4, RBI, steal, two runs) and Whitley (2 for 2, two RBI, two runs, walk) were just some of the biggest bats. Wilson was 2 for 3 with one RBI while hurling four innings for the win, holding Trinity Catholic hitless over the final three innings. On the night, the Celtics managed two hits and one earned run while compiling four strikeouts. Wentworth said of Wilsons performance, It was a little shaky of a start, but she settled down and got the job done. Crystal River will host Citrus at 7 p.m. Friday. to host the NFL s championship game again in 2018 and that the outage wont hurt its chances. Landrieu said league owners were impressed with the citys performance as host and even joked that the game got better after the blackout. People were leaving and the game was getting boring, so we had to do a little something to spice it up, he said. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said New Orleans was a terrific Super Bowl host and that the outage wont affect future bids. I fully expect that we will be back here for Super Bowls, Goodell said. And I hope we will be back. We want to be back. Goodell also said the Superdome had a backup power system ready to go, and it was about to be used when the power started coming back on. The Superdome sits on a 52-acre former railroad yard in the business district. Though only a block from City Hall, the 76,000-seat stadium and the adjacent New Orleans Arena are owned by the state, and the sevenmember commission that oversees them is appointed by Gov. Bobby Jindal. The Superdome was built at a cost of $134 million and opened in 1975. It has been the home to the NFL s New Orleans Saints since then. The first Super Bowl was played there in 1978. Sundays game was the seventh Super Bowl at the stadium, and the 10th overall for New Orleans. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina ripped off the Superdome roof as an estimated 30,000 people huddled inside. defeat the Wolf Pack and has a couple of 2-point losses, including one in overtime, to the Canes, suggesting the Bears are capable of making waves as a fourth seed at home. Crystal River (11-12 overall) had its best regular season in years behind the versatility and scoring of junior Ty Reynolds and the development of sophomore power forward Sam Franklin. But it still faces a stiff path through the 5A-7 tournament, hosted by Eustis, with Nature Coast Technical (21-3), Eustis (16-9), Hernando (17-7) and Tavares (5-15) holding the top four seeds, respectively. The Pirates finished tied with Dunnellon (5-20) to force a coin flip for the fifth and sixth seeds. The Tigers won the flip, but Crystal River prefers its No. 6 spot, which earns it a meeting with Hernando in the opening round at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, and a game with the No. 2-seeded Panthers on Wednesday if they advance. Crystal River lost by two to Eustis and by five to Hernando in January. We think we match up much better with Hernando than Tavares, Pirates coach Steve Feldman said last week on his clubs seeding preference. If Crystal River gets to the 5A-7 title game, which is 7 p.m. Friday, it will spend more than nine hours traveling in four days. As host of the 2A-4 tournament, No. 3 seed Seven Rivers Christian (11-10 overall) gets to avoid the Pirates travel burden. The Warriors play second-seeded St. John Lutheran at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the semifinals. A victory over the Saints would guarantee Seven Rivers a spot in the regional playoffs and put the Warriors into Fridays 7 p.m. championship game against the winner between No. 1 seed First Academy, a team the Warriors have defeated this season, and either No. 4-seededMeadowbrook Academy or fifth-seeded Cornerstone Academy. With three players over 6-foot-4, St. John presents a size challenge for Seven Rivers, which lost by four in both its games with the Saints this season. But the Warriors, led by junior Adam Gages 30 points, showed they can compete well with the Saints when the two played to a tie through the first 29 minutes of their December meeting at Seven Rivers before the Warriors fell.

Joiner joins Bengals after prison termCINCINNATI Rookie linebacker Brandon Joiner has been activated by the Cincinnati Bengals after completing a prison term. The Bengals signed Joiner out of Arkansas State as an undrafted free agent last year, knowing he would be going to prison in Texas over a robbery that led to his indictment in 2008. He was placed on a reserve list and missed all of last season while completing his sentence. Joiner is out of prison and was reinstated on Monday. He can work out with the team.

Shakira shares first baby photo MADRID Shakira is sharing the first public photograph of her recently born baby, with father Gerard Piqu planting a kiss on his infant sons cheek. The 36-year-old Colombian singer announced Monday on Twitter that the photo of my two angels could be seen on the website of UNICEF. She has urged people to donate to a baby shower on behalf of needy children helped by the U.N. childrens agency. The photo shows Milan who was born Jan. 22 in Barcelona, apparently sleeping in the arms of his father. The 25-year-old Piqu is an FC Barcelona soccer star.NFL: Beyonce didnt cause blackoutNEW YORK Dont blame Beyonce for blowing the lights out at the Super Bowl. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Monday the halftime show was absolutely not the cause of the power outage that darkened the Superdome for half an hour. Beyonce was the halftime performer at the game and used plenty of power to light up the stage. Some joked her electrifying performance was to blame for the outage. Ballet chief: I know who attackers were MOSCOW The artistic director of the Bolshoi ballet said he knows who ordered an acid attack that left him with severe burns to his eyes and face but wont say. Sergei Filin checked out of a Moscow hospital Monday and headed to Germany for further rehabilitation. Filin, 42, wore shades and a bandage on his head. But he spoke energetically and seemed to be in good spirits. Filin earlier told Russian state television he knew who ordered the attack but wouldnt give names. He said investigators would visit him in Germany as part of the continuing probe. An attacker threw sulphuric acid in Filins face in Moscow on Jan. 17, as he was returning home from work. His colleagues said the attack on Filin could be in retaliation for his selection of certain dancers over others for the prized roles. Filin told reporters Monday he will have to undergo further eye surgery in Germany. I dont care about my face, my hair, my looks, he said in the television interview. Im ready to be completely bald, look like a Frankenstein. It will have no impact on my heart, on my soul. Birthday You could be very lucky in the year ahead where personal relationships are concerned. You will have more friends than ever. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Involvements with authority figures will work out in your favor, whether they were deliberately orchestrated or occur by happenstance. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Establish some definite objectives for the day, but keep them private. Youll find you will perform far more effectively. Aries (March 21-April 19) Certain knowledge you recently acquired can be used constructively on a current project. You can not only better your own lot in life, but improve things for associates as well. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Take the reins, because your leadership abilities can be a critical factor in revitalizing a joint endeavor that has been going downhill. Your new direction can produce success. Gemini (May 21-June 20) It looks like balance and harmony can be restored in a situation that has become increasingly unsettling. Your efforts, coupled with anothers, will be mostly responsible. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Certain things that have been impossible to handle on your own can be achieved with the help of surrogates if you motivate them properly. Make sure they can benefit as well, and youll all do quite well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) A partnership arrangement can become far more productive if you provide the initiative and let the other person serve as a backup. It could be totally up to you to rev the engines. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A number of important assignments youve been unable to conclude satisfactorily can be finalized by prioritizing them and then knocking them off one at a time. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your popularity is peaking right now, and the impression youre making in your social encounters is favorable and lasting. Youll not find a better time to circulate and make new friends. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Financial trends are far more favorable than they might be tomorrow. If youre involved in something that could spell profit, make every minute count. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Youll not only be a fast thinker, but you should also be able to express yourself in an eloquent and effective manner. All your comments will receive serious consideration. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A venture in which youre presently involved looks like it could be turned into a financial winner, even though you might have to use a slightly different approach than you normally would.

Associated Press Author Maurice Sendak speaks Sept. 6, 2011, during an interview at his home in Ridgefield, Conn. Sendak died in May at age 83, but had managed to finish My Brothers Book, published this week. Associated Press NEW YORK T he last completed book we are likely to get from Maurice Sendak remembers a man he often insisted was the real genius of the family, his brother Jack. Sendak died last May at age 83 after years of health problems, but had managed to finish My Brothers Book, published this week. Admirers of Where the Wild Things Are and other Sendak stories will recognize its themes of danger, flight and fantasy, captured in a dreamy-scary swirl that demonstrates Sendaks debt to William Blake. Brothers Guy and Jack are blasted apart by a fiery star, Jack to continents of ice and Guy into the lair of a bear who attempts to choke Guy and devour him. Guy enrages the bear by asking him a riddle and is flung upon a couch of flowers/in an iceribbed underworld. Inside a greenish curtain of blossoms, he spies the nose of Jack and bites it to make sure he has found him. And Jack slept safe/Enfolded in his brothers arms/And Guy whispered Good night/And you will dream of me. Tony Kushner, a close friend, says that Sendak spoke often of his brother, who died in 1995, and longed to see him again. My Brothers Book is based on Shakespeares A Winters Tale, a bittersweet story of loss and reunion so personal to Sendak that the author sobbed throughout a production Kushner took him to years ago, the playwright says. According to Kushner, Sendak wrote the text in the late 1990s and kept it in a drawer with other possible projects. As his health declined, Sendak began thinking more about his legacy. He was well aware of the story of Verdi, whose masterpiece Falstaff premiered when the composer was 80. And that became an intimidating factor for him (Sendak). He was putting a lot of pressure on himself to make a masterpiece at the end, Kushner says. Kushner noted the illustrations for My Brothers Book were a window into Sendaks health and frame of mind. He had developed cataracts and the work seemed to reflect, almost literally, the world as Sendak saw it. You see his vision worsening, the hand getting shakier, Kushner says of the illustrations in Sendaks book. On days he felt too bad to work, he was absolutely miserable. Right after he had cataract surgery, he was lamenting he couldnt draw and he was getting depressed and angry about it. I remember one day I came into the house (in Ridgefield, Conn.) and he didnt hear me. I went into his work room and there he was at the drawing table, his nose up to the paper, hand over one eye. And he was drawing. J EFF A YERS Associated PressLisa Gardner, the master of the psychological thriller, has delivered another tour de force with Touch & Go, which exposes the raw nerves of a family imploding, and an investigator trying to escape her past. Justin Denbe and his wife, Libby, return from a night out to discover intruders in their home. They witness their 15-year-old daughter, Ashlyn, being attacked with a stun gun before they are attacked as well. Abducted, the family is taken to an abandoned penitentiary. As they wait to learn their captors motive, they struggle to be civil to one other. (Justin had an affair, Libbyis addicted to painkillers, and Ashlyn has a secret boyfriend.) Private investigator Tessa Leoni still lives with the aftermath of the horrible events that changed her life, as told in Gardners earlier novel, Love You More. She is hired by Denbe Construction to investigate the familys kidnapping. Gardner does an amazing job of creating realistic situations and characters with emotional resonance. The constant surprises will shock even the most jaded reader. A character says in the beginning of the novel, Pain has a flavor. The question is, what does it taste like to you? Touch & Go is the opposite of pain; its a total pleasure. Review: Gardners Touch & Go a winner Associated PressNEW YORK With a partial power outage, an overly excited quarterback and a game that suddenly turned from snoozer to sizzler, CBS had its hands full at the Super Bowl. The game fell short of setting a viewership record, but it stands as the third most-watched program in U.S. television history. The Nielsen Co. said an estimated 108.4 million people watched the Baltimore Ravens 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The most-watched events in U.S. TV history were last years game, seen by 111.3 million, and the 2010 game, with 111 million viewers. Baltimore had the highest rating of any individual city, Nielsen said. San Francisco was not among the top 10 cities in ratings.

Tarini is the author of a study that suggests that Mary Ingal ls, sister of Laura Ingalls Wilder, went blind from a meningitis-like disease and not scarlet fever. How did Little House sister really become blind? Not scarlet fever L INDSEY T ANNER AP medical writer CHICAGOA ny fan of Laura Ingalls Wilders beloved Little House books knows how the authors sister Mary went blind: scarlet fever. But turns out that probably wasnt the cause, medical experts say, upending one of the more dramatic elements in the classic stories. An analysis of historical documents, biographical records and other material suggests another disease that causes swelling in the brain and upper spinal cord was the most likely culprit. It was known as brain fever in the late 1800s, the setting for the mostly true stories about Wilders pioneer family. Scarlet fever was rampant and feared at the time, and it was likely often misdiagnosed for other illnesses that cause fever, the researchers said. Wilders letters and unpublished memoir, on which the books are based, suggest she was uncertain about her sisters illness, referring to it as some sort of spinal sickness. And a registry at an Iowa college for blind students that Mary attended says brain fever caused her to lose her eyesight, the researchers said. They found no mention that Mary Ingalls had a red rash that is a hallmark sign of scarlet fever. Its caused by the same germ that causes strep throat. It is easily treated with antibiotics that didnt exist in the 1800s and is no longer considered a serious illness. Doctors used to think blindness was among the complications, but thats probably because they misdiagnosed scarlet fever in children who had other diseases, said study author Dr. Beth Tarini, a pediatrician and researcher at the University of Michigan. Her study appeared online Monday in Pediatrics. Its the latest study offering a modern diagnosis for a historical figure. Others subjected to revisionists microscope include Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin, composer Wolfgang Mozart and Abraham Lincoln. Tarini said as a girl she was a fan of the Little House books and wanted to research Mary Ingalls blindness ever since scarlet fever came up during a medical school discussion. I raised my hand and said, Scarlet fever can make you go blind, right? The instructor hesitated and responded, I dont think so. The disease that Mary Ingalls probably had is called meningoencephalitis (pronounced muh-NING-go-en-sef-ah-LY-tis). It can be caused by bacteria and treated with antibiotics, but Tarini said its likely she had the viral kind, which can be spread by mosquitoes and ticks. H EALTH & L IFE D ecades ago, when a woman was diagnosed with breast cancer, her only chance of survival included a surgical procedure called a radical mastectomy. Over time, this procedure evolved to what is called a modified radical mastectomy, with equal results. Then research studies carefully explored the possibility of a lesser surgical procedure, simply removing the tumor and preserving the rest of the breast, called a lumpectomy. This lumpectomy, when Therapy in early breast cancer See BENNETT / Page C4 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Winning the war W e know we are fighting a war. This is a very important war and we must win. No, I am not talking about the war in Afghanistan or Iraq. I am talking about the war against cancer! Many times, people feel we are losing this war and there is no hope. This is not true. The overall death rate from cancer is declining in the United States. Data just released by the American Cancer Society (ACS) shows that overall cancer deaths have declined by 20 percent since their peak in 1991. The decreases are even greater in lung, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers. C oughing is a reflex characterized by a deep inspiration and buildup of pressure in our throat, followed by a forceful expulsion of that built-up air. The pressure is so great in the chest that the velocity of the air coming out can reach 500 miles per hour. The purpose of the cough is multifaceted. It is a protective reflex. It is a first-line body defense mechanism, and, it helps rid the body of unwanted secretions, foreign matter, viruses and bacteria that are entering the respiratory tract, and can prevent these bacteria and viruses from invading the lungs. Coughing is a wonderful thing. However, when it is persistent, it can really affect a patients quality of life. And, if it is persistent, and becomes impaired in some way, such as fluid in the windpipe or fluid in the lungs, it can become a health problem, and can cause infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia. U.S. Department of Health surveys suggest a cough is probably Chronic cough management G ood morning! Just a reminder: Valentines Day is next week, so if youre having flowers delivered, you should call today! (Ill take a nice cabernet and some dark chocolate, please. Both are good for the heart in moderation.) February is Womens Heart Health Month, so its a wonderful time to review possible symptoms of a heart attack for men and women. Most dont realize womens signs of a heart attack are very different from those of men, who usually suffer pressing chest pain, sweating and nausea. Signs of a heart attack for a woman can be disguised as other illnesses such as a sore throat or the flu, which is an additional issue, because women rarely seek medical attention for themselves, prefer to wait it out, or diagnose and treat themselves with over the counter medication. Women are less likely than men to have the typical Hollywood heart attack, said Sharonne Hayes, M.D., cardiologist and Womens Heart Health Month See LUCAS / Page C5 See GRILLO / Page C5 Dr. Denis Grillo EAR, NOSE & THROAT Section C TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE INSIDE Dr. Frank Vascimini / Page C5 Dr. David B.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, F EBRUARY5, 2013 C3 Drug helps treat clots from atrial fibrillation Q : I heard about a new drug to reduce strokes and blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation. What can you tell me about it? A: In late December 2012, the FDA approved the anticlotting drug Eliquis (apixaban), an oral tablet used to reduce the risk of stroke and dangerous blood clots (systemic embolism) in patients with atrial fibrillation (A-Fib or AF) not caused by a heart valve problem. Atrial fibrillation, one of the most common types of abnormal heart rhythm, is an abnormal, irregular and rapid beating of the heart in which the hearts two upper chambers (atria) do not contract properly, allowing blood clots to form in them. These clots can break off and travel to the brain or other parts of the body. The safety and efficacy of Eliquis in treating patients with atrial fibrillation not caused by cardiac valve disease were studied in a clinical trial of more than 18,000 patients that compared Eliquis with the anti-clotting drug Coumadin (warfarin). In the trial, patients taking Eliquis had fewer strokes than those who took Coumadin (warfarin). Patients with prosthetic heart valves should not take Eliquis nor should patients with atrial fibrillation that is caused by a heart valve problem. These patients were not studied in clinical trials. As with other FDA-approved anti-clotting drugs, bleeding, including life-threatening and fatal bleeding, is the most serious risk with Eliquis. Eliquis is the third oral anticoagulant to be approved in the United States for this use, with the other two being Pradaxa (dabigatran) and Xarelto (rivaroxaban). Unlike Coumadin (warfarin), all three of these new drugs do not require regular coagulation laboratory monitoring and they also have a less likelihood of drug interactions. However, there is no agent that can reverse the anticoagulant effect of these three new drugs if bleeding should occur. Eliquis is dosed orally twice daily and will be dispensed with a patient Medication Guide that provides instructions on its use and drug safety information.

followed by radiation therapy, led to equivalent cure and survival rates for women with breast cancer, and opened the door for a woman to keep her breast if she chose to. For the past 20 years, when I have seen a woman newly diagnosed with breast cancer, I have always discussed both surgical options and explained the cure and survival rates of the two are the same; it really is a personal choice. Now, I may have to rethink that philosophy. In a new study released only a few weeks ago, women with early stage breast cancer who undergo a lumpectomy followed by radiation therapy such as we deliver at RBOI, were found to have a better survival rate than women who underwent the more surgically aggressive mastectomy. The details of this study were published online in Cancer. Researchers from the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C. analyzed survival data from 112,154 women who had been diagnosed with stage I or stage II breast cancer in California between 1990 and 2004. They carefully compared those women who had received either a mastectomy or breastconserving therapy (BCT, also known as a lumpectomy) along with a course of radiation therapy. During this study, there were 31,416 deaths as of 2009, with breast cancer directly being the underlying cause in 39 percent of cases. During an average follow-up of 110.6 months, researchers found that women who received BCT followed by radiation therapy had significantly improved overall survival, meaning that fewer women in the BCT and radiation arm of the study had died from all causes combined, not just cancer. BCT followed by radiation therapy was also associated with significantly improved disease-specific survival yes, fewer women dying from breast cancer when compared to the mastectomy, with a greater benefit for women age 50 years or older with hormone receptor-positive cancer than among women aged younger than 50 with hormone receptornegative disease. However, in all subgroups of patients analyzed, older or younger than 50, hormone receptor positive or negative, this finding of a better survival rate among women who underwent BCT followed by radiation therapy was observed. So, this adds even more data to the success of the lumpectomy when followed by radiation therapy when looking at patients with early stage breast cancer. This study clearly shows BCT followed by radiation therapy was associated with improved disease-specific survival. Overall, this data should provide confidence and a sense of comfort to women that BCT followed by radiation therapy is an effective alternative to mastectomy for early stage disease regardless of age or hormone receptor status, and will allow more and more women to keep their breast, cure their cancer and actually improve their chances of survival when compared to a mastectomy.

Break and fracture are just different words used and accepted to describe and mean the same thing as they apply to bone injury. However, there are certainly different degrees of fracture or break. Fractures or anything that disrupts the covering of bone (the periosteum) cause pain. I tell patients that depending on the individual, a small insult to a small bone can hurt as much as a compound fracture. The level of pain varies from individual to individual. I never tell a patient with a small toe fracture it shouldnt hurt that much. Pain is pain, and tolerance varies from person to person. A stress fracture is a fracture in the bone where the bone is still in alignment and is almost completely functional, but it hurts and is still broken. I tell patients a stress fracture is usually an overuse injury whereby the stress of daily activity, exercise or a new activity outpaces the healing ability of a bone, and so the bone fatigues and eventually fails over a period of time rather then in one fell swoop. I tell patients the fatigue is similar to bending a piece of metal many times and it will eventually fail and break. A stress fracture is also similar to a crack in a windshield. You can see the crack so you know the windshield is broken. The cracked windshield still works in most cases, as it does its job. You can see through it and it keeps debris and weather from affecting you, but it is still broken as evidenced by the visible crack. A stress fracture is very similar in the foot, but it can be very painful. Stress fractures can be difficult to see on radiographs, however. Many times, I will tell a patient I believe they have a stress fracture, but none shows on radiographs. Their history and exam may be consistent with stress fracture, but the break may not be evident on radiographs. This often gives patients worry. A negative radiograph does not rule out a stress fracture as they often take some time before changes show up on radiographs. In my opinion, stress fractures should be treated when the suspicion is high, regardless of the lack of radiographic evidence. Repeating the radiographs in two weeks after initiating treatment is often enough time to see the fracture which reassures the patient. More time, bone scan or MRI can be considered to see the fracture if the fracture is still invisible on radiographs as long as the patient is being treated for fracture and is feeling more comfortable with that treatment. Stress fractures are painful and they can be difficult to observe on radiographs. Repeating radiographs over time with treatment or more definitive testing are acceptable alternatives for diagnosis if radiographic evidence is unobtainable. If you have pain in your foot or ankle that does not resolve, you should consult with your podiatrist or family physician. David B.

director of the Mayo Clinics Womens Heart Clinic in Rochester, Minn. This issue is very disconcerting because women dont call 9-1-1 for themselves. Bottom line, patients could very well die on the couch at home, which many women do because they were unaware they were having a heart attack. If youre older than 50, have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, are a smoker or have a family history of heart disease, you should pay attention to the following signs. Chest pain may feel like heavy pressure, but sometimes it comes as interspersing squeezes that come and go, or you may just have an uncomfortable feeling. If the chest pain lasts more than five minutes, call 9-1-1. Shortness of breath may occur before the chest pain and feels as though you cant catch your breath even while resting. Dizziness or lightheadedness make you feel as though you will pass out and cold sweats are when you are cold but youre sweating. Symptoms more likely in women are as follows: pain in the arm (especially left arm), back, neck, abdomen or shoulder blades; the pain is often described as an uncomfortable pressure, tightness or ache. If you can put a finger on it and say, It hurts right here, thats much less likely to be a heart attack, said Pamela Ouyang, a cardiologist with the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Jaw pain: The feeling starts in the chest and moves to the throat, as though youre being choked, then on to the jaw. But again, its not always obvious. Sometimes people go to the dentist, thinking its a toothache, when they actually had a heart attack. Nausea and vomiting: Women are more likely than men to have this symptom, and they may think they have the stomach flu rather than a heart attack. Overwhelming and unusual fatigue: Fatigue is often disregarded as a heart attack sign, so take heed if youre unusually exhausted. No one will experience the same exact symptoms of a heart attack, so its best to have an annual check-up and talk to your doctor about any discomfort. Be informed and take care of yourself. Cardiologist Gordon Tomaselli, and presidentelect of the American Heart Association, said, often after people have a heart attack, they realize in retrospect they had symptoms days or weeks earlier that they didnt recognize such as extreme fatigue or throat pain.

LUCAS Continued from Page C1H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, F EBRUARY5, 2013 C5 Dentist bristles at quality of toothbrushes I thought I would share something that happened to me over the past few weeks in this weeks column. It brings home the point I mentioned in a column years ago. A good friend of mine, the owner of AMH Aluminum in Homosassa, always says, Bottom line ... youll get what you pay for. Right after the holidays, I got hit by the flu. I was out of commission for about two weeks and for the record, I will forever take the flu shot from now on. After I recovered, I did as I ask patients to do and threw away my toothbrushes. I use a Sonicare brush at night and a standard brush in the morning. Even though my Sonicare has a UV sterilization light, I felt it was best to discard it. As many of us do, I made myself a note to bring home a brush from the office. Unfortunately, I kept forgetting. Even when I did remember to get it, I put it in my office and accidentally left it on the counter. Lucky for me, I have a box of brushes at home that I give to my sons friends when they end up sleeping over. The only problem with this is I bought a box of the less-expensive, generic brushes for this purpose, since I knew they were going to be used for one time use. Well, this is where the real story begins. When I used one of those brushes for the first time, I couldnt believe how hard the bristles were, how square the edges were, and how cheap the plastic they were made of was. Despite this, I cant believe it was at least a few days until I remembered to bring one of the real brushes home. When I finally brought one of the brushes home that we dispense to patients, I realized once again what friend Kevin meant when he said, Bottom line ... youll get what you pay for. A second scenario that rings this bell happened this week when my lab replaced a set of impression trays they misplaced over the holidays. I did a favor for a patient over the holidays and repaired a denture she broke. As a result, I sent the trays along with the impressions to the lab. Since it was a little different than usual (we normally just send the model and not the trays) the lab accidentally sent the trays to someone else and I never got them back. In doing the right thing, they sent me a set of trays from a gen eric company and not the same company my trays were man ufactured from. When I looked at the replacement trays, I immediately noticed the differences. After a phone call, they agreed to get me the same exact trays I sent to them. Once again, the principle of Bottom line ... youll get what you pay for. Over they years, I have tried to instill this idea in my kids because in so many instances this quote rings true. I have also tried to explain that, in some rare instances, it may not necessarily be the case. Ive explained to them that these cases are the toughest to figure out, so always be aware.

Dr. Frank Vascimini SOUND BITES The viral disease is fairly common today, particularly in summer months and can cause fever, headaches and sometimes seizures, said Dr. Buddy Creech, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University. Affected children typically require hospitalization but lasting effects are uncommon, Creech said. Still, blindness can occur if the disease affects the optic nerve, and its entirely possible that Mary Ingalls had the condition, he said. Historian William Anderson, author of Laura Ingalls Wilder biography, said various theories about Mary Ingalls blindness have been floating around for years. The new analysis provides credible evidence that it was caused by something other than scarlet fever, but it does nothing to discredit the books, Anderson said. From a literary standpoint, scarlet fever just seemed to be the most convenient way to describe Marys illness, he said. FEVER Continued from Page C1 In its annual statistical review of cancer incidence and mortality, ACS estimated more than 1 million Americans were saved from cancer deaths since 1991 the difference between the actual cancer mortality and a projection of continued increases in cancer deaths at the 197591 average. Of course, we have not won this war; this is just a beginning. This war requires longterm commitment. The ACS researchers also estimated the U.S. would see 1.6 million new cancer cases diagnosed in 2013 and almost 580,000 cancer deaths. This is the second time in a few weeks that a major report has highlighted falling cancer mortality rates in the United States. Earlier this month, the Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer reported that cancer deaths continue to fall. At the time, Dr. Seffrin noted the continuing drop in cancer mortality over the past 2 decades is reason to cheer, although he and others emphasized there is still much work to be done. That report highlighted the growing incidence of cancers related to human papillomavirus (HPV) and the potential for prevention with HPV vaccines. I have written about this vaccine and cancers due to HPV in past. Starting in 1990, lung cancer death rates in men dropped about 30 percent, from 91 per 100,000 to 62 in 2009. Deaths from prostate cancer per 100,000, which had also peaked in the early 1990s, also plummeted from 40 to 22. The largest decrease in cancer death rates for women has been for breast cancer, down 33 percent since 1990. Decreases in death rates were seen for most other cancer types. The major exception is liver cancer in men, for which mortality has been edging upward since 1980. Researchers also found that five-year survival rates have been trending upward, even for notoriously poor-prognosis cancers such as lung, pancreatic and esophageal malignancies. This is a lot of statistics, but the underlying theme is we are winning the war on cancer. With new research in genetics and other biochemical advances, I think the pace of this victory will be even faster in the future. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHI Continued from Page C1 one of the most common reasons for a doctor visit, and may account for up to 20 million office visits a year. Taking into account the average cost for an office visit, the tally comes up to about $1 billion a year spent in the United States alone treating coughs. This includes prescription and nonprescription treatments. The way a cough works is there are stretch receptors in the airway that become stimulated when irritated, and as a result, produce the cough reflex. There are even cough receptors located outside of the airway (which consists of the nose all the way down to the very bottom of the lung). These two extra sites are the ear canal and the stomach. As a matter of fact, there are many times when I am examining a patients ear, or cleaning the ear of wax, that we can elicit a cough-reflex, simply from doing that activity. About three conditions, including postnasal drip, asthma and reflux disease, account for about 86 percent of patients presenting with a cough to their doctor. If you have emphysema and/or take certain blood pressure medications in the category of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, the percentage jumps up to about the mid-90 percentile. There is also a long list of unusual causes for coughing that I will not bother to get into at this point in time, because they are so unusual and rare. Management of cough can be quite challenging and difficult. If you know, for example, that it is either postnasal drip, asthma or reflux disease, you can target the treatment towards the underlying problem. But sometimes effective cough therapy cannot be done, and sometimes you need to treat the symptoms of cough. Case in point might be a virus, and also, what we call post-viral coughing. When you have a virus, of course, everybody knows that you do not need antibiotics, because viruses are going to run their course and get better, in most instances, within a few days. The coughing tends to last a little bit longer, but it too will eventually clear up. In this situation, if the cough is preventing the patient from functioning normally, or resting properly, a cough medicine, either nonprescription or prescription, might be the treatment of choice, as opposed to targeting the underlying problem, as in the other causes of cough. This is a kind of nonspecific therapy, simply trying to suppress the coughing reflex so the patient can enjoy the better quality of life. Nonspecific cough therapy includes medications such as codeine or hydrocodone, which are in the opioid family, and require a prescription. Non-prescription cough medicine includes dextromethorphan, and it too can be an effective anticough medication if dosed properly. There is a third medication that is used in cough control: Guaifenesin. It is an expectorant and mucous-thinning agent that creates an effect of increasing mucous secretions, thus hydrating mucous membranes, and decreasing the irritation, which results in improved cough control. It seems to work well when cough receptor sensitivity is enhanced. Effective cough control must be targeted at the underlying cause of the cough to get the optimal result. As you can see, there are many aspects that must be considered and checked out thoroughly. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

T UESDAY, F EBRUARY5, 2013 C7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Victor Hugo wrote, He who every morning plans the transactions of the day, and follows that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through a labyrinth of the most busy life. A declarer who every first trick plans the transactions of the deal, and follows that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through a labyrinth of a most busy deal. That is true, but declarers must always be ready to change their plans if necessary. For example, look at todays club suit. If South has no other worries, what is his best play for four tricks? Then, South is in three no-trump. West leads the heart six: five, jack, king. How should declarer plan the transactions of the deal? South has seven top tricks: two spades, one heart (trick one), two diamonds and two clubs. He needs two not three more club tricks to get home. In isolation, the best plan is to cash dummys ace, then play low to dummys jack on the second round. But one of the main reasons bridge retains its popularity is that the right way to play a suit mathematically will not always be the correct approach in a given deal. Here, if East gets on play, he will lead a heart through Souths queen. That will not hurt if the hearts are 4-4, but if they are 5-3 or 6-2, the contract will fail. Declarer must work to keep East off play. South should lead a club to the king and cash the ace. Here, the queen drops and South gains an overtrick. But if the queen has not appeared (and the suit is 3-2), declarer plays a third round, hoping for the best.

My two daughters recently married, and the weddings were six weeks apart. My inlaws gave us a nice sum of money to help us with the weddings. We were very grateful and told them so. Right before the first wedding, my husband lost his job. In order to finish paying for the second wedding, we had to ask my father-in-law to lend us more money. He said, Sure. I want to give the girls what they want. We didnt tell our kids about my husbands job situation because we wanted them to soak in all the glory of being brides without any stress. Heres what happened: At Christmas, my father-in-law sent small amounts of money to me, my husband and our son with a note saying, We thought it would be OK to pass on the girls this year. The money is such a small amount that it didnt matter, but I cannot get over the fact that he took out our financial difficulties on them. The girls have no idea why their grandfather didnt give them holiday gifts, and so far, I havent told them. I am so mad, I could scream. I have to see my father-in-law at a family event this weekend and dont think I can be civil. This man showered his daughters children with cars for graduation that mine never got. I slept on this before writing and am angrier now than when I went to bed. At the moment, I dont want to ever see him again. Please advise. Washington Dear Washington: The fact that Dad is unfair in his gift giving is a legitimate issue, but that doesnt mean your children are entitled to receive gifts from him. You refer to the wedding money as loans, but Dad apparently considered them his wedding gifts to his granddaughters. If so, he was generous, and the girls should know. If they were actual loans and you are repaying the money, we agree that Dad should have treated your family equally at Christmas. Either way, it serves no purposes to stew in silence. Talk to your husband and then to Dad, together. Try to be nice. We doubt he intended to be unkind, and he probably doesnt realize that his behavior disturbed you. Dear Annie : My family recently planned a special, catered, expensive celebration. We gave much thought to our guest list. One couple told us they wanted their grown children invited. Then the grown children asked if they could bring their children. Some guests simply assumed their children were invited and brought them. Please tell them again, Annie: If the invitation is addressed to Mr. and Mrs., it is only for them. It does not include children, grandchildren or friends. What has happened to manners? I hope this will enlighten some folks. Roanoke, Va. Dear Roanoke : Some people believe all invitations are casual and open. They are not. Guest lists are limited by space as well as cost. It would be nice if your letter helps people understand this so they can be more gracious when responding. Dear Annie : I can relate to the letter from No, I Am Not Trying for a Boy, who had two girls and was still carrying baby weight. When I was carrying twins, a woman I knew only casually asked me whether I was having a baby elephant. After the girls were born, I overheard a friend saying, It looks like she still has one left in there. However, a true friend visited me in the hospital after my fifth girl and said, How many people can say they have five beautiful girls? Some people know what to say and some dont. That was 35 years ago, and all of our girls have been true blessings in our lives.

SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS A young mother is facing first-degree murder charges in the death of her 6-monthold infant son, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Brittany Nichole Arnett, 20, of Robin Hood Road who was arrested Monday was reportedly upset that her boyfriend had left her at home with the baby when she turned her fury on the infant, according to the arrest affidavit. At around noon on Jan. 27, Arnett reportedly placed the baby in his swing and in the following two hours slammed the face of the infant into the swing tray. She admitted to investigators she also grabbed the infant by the rib cage and yanked him from the swing with such force it caused the babys head to snap back and forth without resistance. Arnett also told investigators she recalled when she pulled the baby out of the swing, the infants head hit the swing. According to the affidavit, Arnett said she knew the baby was injured by the time her boyfriend got home, but was afraid to tell him or seek medical help. When the boyfriend got home, the baby appeared to be acting normal, but was sensitive to touch and had Brittany Arnettarrested Monday. TDC hopes to attract more businessCHRISVANORMER Staff writerGetting sportier would attract more events and more business. Its something the tourism board has looked at, and were just trying to diversify our economic base here to promote our county, said County Commissioner Rebecca Bays, chairman of the Tourist Development Council. Its one of those avenues we can take to help promote Citrus County and bring families in the type of people wed like to have here. Tourism is joining forces with the Parks and Recreation Department to offer sports facilities and to advance a plan of sports marketing to bring national tournaments. The goal also is to revitalize events residents already enjoy. About a year ago, tourism was put under the Community Services Department, said Cathy Pearson, assistant County makes pitch for bigger sporting events A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerHOMOSASSA It was a Free Willy moment Monday near the spring head of the Homosassa River. But unlike the famous movie about the release of a whale into the wild, the mammals here were manatees, and they took their languid time to slowly slide through the gate into the warm spring area of the river. The release of sea cows Wooten, Laroc and Charlie, after periods of rehabilitation at various locations, was the first of its kind since the 1990s, according to Art Yerian, manager of the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. They are what we call nave animals, which means they are used to humans and are about to get out for the first time on their own, Yerian said as Laroc was getting ready to be unloaded from a truck into a holding tank the precursor to release into the area known as the Fish Bowl. Temperatures in the spring area remain a relatively balmy 72 degrees yearround, which is why manatees are drawn there during the winter months. Laroc, Charlie and Wooten were transported in moving trucks and, once on site, tagged with a radio monitor that hangs like a belt around the mammals flap area. More than a dozen people assembled around Laroc as he was slid down the trucks plank onto layers of foam and lowered into the holding tank. Laroc flapped a huge splash as spectators applauded. Laroc joined Wooten and Charlie and, after a moment, the gate to the holding area was lifted. It took the manatees a while to eventually transition into the river, however.

The board of education is headed for retirement. Citrus County School District officials said theyre ready to remove paddling as a form of punishment from their student code of conduct. Paddling has been on the books in Citrus County for decades. But it hasnt been used for several years, and when school board members reviewed recommended code changes last week, board member Thomas Kennedy suggested getting rid of corporal punishment altogether. Others agreed. I dont think theres anything we should condone about paddling, board member Pat Deutschman said. Paddling was once considered an effective form of punishment. Ginger Bryantoccasionally used paddle.

county administrator and director of Community Services. One of the things that we were seeing was that a lot of the other counties have what they call sports marketing sports tourism. We dont have that here and we felt we were missing the boat on that. Sports marketing became part of the Tourist Development Councils strategic plan in October, with a goal of bringing sports tourism into the community. We have Parks and Recreation with the county it made a perfect fit to have Parks and Rec and Tourism work together to make this happen, Pearson said. Already, the plan is underway. Weve booked some baseball tournaments, Pearson said. Weve had some softball tournaments booked. Weve got some basketball that were working on right now. Weve just had somebody approach us about soccer. In addition to being fun and entertaining, Bays and Pearson both emphasized the economic benefit of sports tourism. It draws people to our county. It puts people in our hotel rooms. It helps support our restaurants, Pearson said. Bays said sports tourism would be a good field to test in the county. Were trying to start small and look at it, Bays said. Through tourism, well go out and get information about companies that eventually could do a feasibility study. We want to put our foot in the water and check it out and see how far down the road we want to go with it. The range of sports for national tournaments could include lacrosse, soccer, softball, fishing and baseball. In addition, cheerleading, BMX and 4H Drill team competitions also may figure in the future. To open this avenue took some work. Weve really reorganized our Parks and Recreation Department, Pearson said. We want to bring in a new field. In focusing its effort to attract sports tourism, Parks and Recreation staff also reviewed its current programs to determine if any are being duplicated within the community. According to Pearson, during the past few years, the Parks and Recreation Department summer camp program has competed with those offered by the YMCA, the Boys & Girls Clubs and other organizations. Staff met with Joanna Castle, YMCA executive director, who agreed to take over the Parks and Recreation program called Camp Fusion beginning in May 2013. This will allow county staff more time to work on sports tourism and attract tournaments into the county. She wanted to let us concentrate on adult sports, Pearson said about Castles agreement. A lot of staff time goes into that and we thought we could use our staff time to take us into this new direction to work with tourism to help expand the tourism market with the sports market. For many years, the parks department has hosted Camp Fusion, a 10-week daily summer camp for children aged 6 to 10 that offered many field trips and activities. In addition to the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs, summer camps have been offered by churches, educational groups, sports groups and music groups. County staff also plans to host several sports clinics and camps throughout the summer. For more information, go to www.citrus countyparks.com. Summer camp registration for the YMCA will begin in March. To find information about YMCA programs, call 352-6370132.

Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com. School board member Ginger Bryant, who taught 28 years at Crystal River Middle School, said she occasionally used the paddle on unruly students. In some cases it was all we could do to keep a child in line, Bryant said Monday. Student Services coordinator Cherise Cernich, who spent about 15 years as an assistant principal at Lecanto Middle School, said paddling occurred only when parents requested it instead of sending children to inschool suspension. It was never initiated by the school, she said. Always by parent request. And it was very seldom. Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel, who grew up in Citrus County, said she recalled being paddled in kindergarten. There was a fire drill and I was finger painting, Himmel said. I went to wash my hands while everyone left. They paddled me for not leaving for the fire drill. Himmel said paddling no longer has a place in schools. A lot of things that were popular back in the day are not so popular now, she said. For a lot of parents this is not their choice of discipline. That should be a parents choice. Deutschman, the boards senior member, agreed. Times have changed in the ways we discipline children, she said. This is just a bygone era.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. difficulty focusing. The baby also had blood in his mouth, which was removed by a suction ball, the report stated. Arnett reportedly put the baby to bed, but at 6:25 the next morning, she and the boyfriend took the unresponsive baby to Citrus Memorial hospital. Medical staff tried for more than an hour to revive the baby, according to the report. After closely examining the baby, hospital staff noticed numerous marks including bruising of the rib cage and what appeared to be a bite mark on his left thigh. An autopsy conducted the following day on the baby revealed, among other injuries, brain hemorrhaging, a separated spine, broken ribs and lacerations inside the babys mouth. Arnett was arrested Monday and transported to the Citrus County Detention Center.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

Hopefully, they understand its warm here (in the river) and its cold out there (in the Gulf), she said. Ross said the monitors tethered to the sea cows, which are like small floating buckets with an antenna sticking out, aid her organization to keep tabs on their movements and how well they are adjusting. The monitors come off after about a year and when staff is satisfied with the progress of the manatees. Marilyn Margold, who is with the South Florida Museum in Bradenton, was on hand to see Charlie released. Margold said Charlies mother was struck by a boat in early 2011 and in August of 2011 Charlie was brought to the museum for rehabilitation. She said the MRP chose the Homosassa River for the release of the manatees based on criteria of optimal chances for transition into the wild. Yerian said Wooten, who came from the Columbus Zoo, was initially going to be released in the Orange River, but things changed because of bacteria in that river. Wooten had been in the holding tank for three weeks prior to Mondays release. I hope they do great, Yerian said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE LAURENSAGEREINLIENorthwest Florida Daily NewsHURLBURT FIELD On Sunday, 15 airmen lined up along the sidewalk in the morning sun. They read the names of their five fallen comrades, hoisted their 40-pound rucksacks onto their backs and took their first brisk steps. More than 450 miles of winding road lay before them. The men are marching day and night to Tampa in remembrance of the five special operations airmen from Hurlburt Field who were killed in action last year. They expect to arrive Friday. Were honoring our heroes step by step, said Sgt. Deon McGowen, who organized the rucksack march. The men are scheduled to pass through Crystal River and Homosassa Thursday, Feb. 7, traveling south on U.S. 19. According to information from their Facebook page, the airmen should be in Crystal River around 10 a.m. and passing Sugarmill Woods around 1:30 p.m. The men who were killed were the marchers friends, roommates and brothers-in-arms. Mitch Sherman is marching for his best friend, Capt. Ryan Hall, who was killed at age 30 when his U-28A plane went down near Djibouti, Africa, on Feb. 18, 2012. Three other special operations airmen, Capt. Nicholas Whitlock, 29, 1st Lt. Justin Wilkens, 26, and Senior Airman Julian Scholten, 26, were also killed in the crash. They were returning from a mission when the plane went down. About a week later, on Feb. 28, 2012, another Hurlburt airman, Lt. Col. John Loftis, 44, was shot to death at his desk during an attack on the Interior Ministry in Kabul, Afghanistan. The marchers are also raising money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides scholarships for the children of Special Ops servicemen who are killed in action. Two Hurlburt airmen are en route to Tanzania to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro as part of the effort. By Sunday afternoon, they had raised more than $8,000. They hope to reach $50,000 by the end of the march, McGowen said. The men will march in a relay to Tampa; at least two will be on the road at all times. Each will likely cover at least 100 miles over the next five days. WANT TO HELP?

Next, you have to be able to carry it outdoors on a football field for 20, 30, 60 minutes without setting it down. In heat or cold. While playing it. And moving. In formation. Think its easy? Think again. But its something that gets into your blood, said Benny Pisani, vice president of the Sun Devils Drum and Bugle Corps and Citrus High Schools drumline instructor for the past 10 years. As an umbrella organization, the Citrus County-based Sun Devils includes RPT Percussion Theater, a mostly indoor group of drum and percussion performers, Sun Devils Drum and Bugle Corps and Impact, mostly comprised of older adults. Impact is based in Orlando. The definition of a drum and bugle corps is a brass and percussion ensemble that competes on a football field, said Sun Devils president Lou Labetti. Think of it as a mega marching band, added Robb Van Eck, Sun Devils brass caption head. We have four major components to the corps all the brass players, the drummers that march on the field, the drummers that stay stationary on the sidelines and the color guard. Recently, Labetti, Pisani, Van Eck and other Sun Devils adult leaders coached and drilled more than 50 teens and young adult percussion and horn players during a rehearsal weekend at Citrus High School. While many were from Citrus County, others came from as far away as Jacksonville, Daytona and the Panhandle. Scattered across the campus, small groups practiced, practiced, practiced semicircles of contrabass (small tuba) players on the lawn by the football field, color guards practicing their precision flag drills in the empty parking lot, a half-dozen xylophone players plinking out their rhythms in the cafetorium, a drumline perfecting their choreography while beating their drums. Weve wanted to bring this to Citrus (County) so the kids dont have to travel all over the place to do something like this, Pisani said. At one time, band was not cool, but today kids are lining up to join. Ever since the movie Drumline came out, the one about a college show band, ever since, everyone wants to be a drummer, Pisani said. Were overrun with drummers. Try to find horn players, thats another matter. Pisani said the Sun Devils have won two national championships so far. This August they will be hosting an event at Citrus High School with drum and bugle corps coming from all over, even from out of state. Ive been a part of this activity since I was a kid in New Jersey, off and on for 40 years, Pisani said. You get a passion for it. The Sun Devils, a not-forprofit organization, is open to anyone age 14 and older. Members do not need to supply their own instruments. Membership does not require an audition, but skills will be evaluated and members placed accordingly.

CHRISVANORMER Staff writerLECANTO A Homosassa property owners association may have found an alternative to building its community facility on greenbelt land. Sugarmill Woods Oak Village Association will make a conditional use request on Thursday before the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC) to use an existing structure at 8827 S. Suncoast Blvd., Homosassa. The structure is a 2,548 square foot model house constructed in 2001 on a lot of more than 1.21 acres. It fronts U.S. 19 and is just south of a commercial node, according to information in the application. The area is both residential and commercial with some undeveloped lots. In April 2012, the association upset about a dozen of its members when it requested the PDC change the designation of almost 5 acres of land within Sugarmill Woods from nature belt to community facility to make a site for a 4,000-square-foot office building. However, the nature belt designation did not originate with the county or the state, but from the property owners deed restrictions. Thus, the county could not enforce the designation change. The PDC, by a 5-to-2 vote with modified conditions, recommended the previous application for an atlas amendment to the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. However, it currently is on hold at the applicants request. County staff will recommend approval of the current conditional use application with the condition that development will be consistent with a specific site plan. The PDC is empowered to grant the conditional use request as a final action.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Emails raise questions about Fla. redistricting Associated PressTALLAHASSEE New documents are raising questions about whether Florida legislators ignored rules intended to prevent political parties and incumbents from influencing the once-a-decade process of redistricting. Emails show top Republican Party of Florida officials met in late 2010 to brainstorm redistricting with political consultants and legislative employees involved in drawing new districts for Congress and the Legislature. That was just a few weeks after voters overwhelmingly adopted the Fair Districts constitutional amendments that set new standards for redistricting and were intended to remove partisanship from the politically charged job of creating new maps. The Associated Press requested the documents after they were presented in a court hearing last week. Several groups have filed lawsuits seeking to have a court throw out the maps eventually adopted for both Congress and the Florida Senate. That court battle has sparked a tug-of-war over who should be required to testify and what documents should be presented in court. A bid to force legislators and legislative staff to turn over information is currently before an appeals court. But what has emerged is a batch of documents that consist mainly of emails between Florida political consultants including some who were getting paid by the Republican Party. The emails show how the consultants routinely traded redistricting information, and how it would potentially affect Republican incumbents. But some emails show legislative employees exchanging information with these same consultants. In one example, a top aide to thenHouse Speaker Dean Cannon used a personal email account to send a consultant a link to a congressional district map. The aide Kirk Pepper did not respond to a phone call or email. Another email shows a Republican Party official telling one political consultant that the latest proposed redistricting map for Congress could entice U.S. Rep. John Mica to run against U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams. Mica did run against Adam, defeating her in the GOP primary. Every 10 years, lawmakers redraw legislative and congressional districts based on new population figures. But two years ago voters approved the Fair Districts constitutional amendments, which state that legislators cant draw districts intended to protect incumbents or members of a certain political party.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Legislature should allow more time and more places for early voting and limit the length of the summaries for proposed state constitutional amendments that lawmakers put on the ballot, Floridas elections chief recommended Monday. Secretary of State Ken Detzner presented his proposals to Gov. Rick Scott and later to a legislative panel. His ideas drew a mixed and sometimes partisan response from lawmakers. Detzner told the House Ethics and Elections Subcommittee that Floridas 2012 elections were fair even though thousands of voters waited in line for hours on Election Day, as well as during early voting, and though it took days to finish counting ballots. I just dont think it was fair that we had these long lines and people who would have otherwise voted didnt because of them, said Rep. Mike Clelland. The Lake Mary Democrat then asked Detzner, an appointee of the Republican governor, how sure he was that his proposals would be the answer. I am 100 percent confident that my report and our recommendations will solve the problem, and I am 100 percent sure that these recommendations were without party influence, were unbiased and were the best representation of the best people that I could find in Florida to make recommendations, Detzner. His proposals, made after touring the state and meeting with local election officials, would undo a couple key elements of an election law passed by the Republican-majority Legislature in 2011. The GOP-sponsored law reduced early voting days, which has wide support among minorities who tend to favor Democrats, to no more than eight days from a previous requirement of 12 to 14 days. It also eliminated early voting on the Sunday before Election Day, when blacks often vote after church in a tradition known as souls to the polls. Detzner proposed making eight days the minimum while giving the 67 county supervisors of elections the option of extending early voting to as many as 14 days, including the Sunday before Election Day. The 2011 law made no change in a previous limit on early voting sites to election supervisors main and branch offices, city halls and public libraries. Detzner proposed expanding the list to include other government facilities such as stadiums, fairgrounds, civic centers, convention centers and courthouses. The Florida Association of Supervisors of Election is in agreement with Detzners recommendation on voting days but says its members should be able to pick voting sites through the same process they use for securing Election Day polling places, which often include churches and other non-governmental buildings. Rep. Ritch Workman, RMelbourne, questioned the need for such changes. He said he didnt notice long lines during the 2008 election, which also had a high turnout. Workman, instead, blamed the Legislature for putting 11 proposed amendments on the ballot. Voters rejected all but three of those proposals, including measures that would have advanced the GOP agenda on such issues as abortion, health care, taxes and private school vouchers. The one problem we had is 4,000 words worth of amendments that caused these long lines, Workman said. I think were trying to fix too much. Detzer agreed that ballot length was the biggest issue. Supervisors advised me to the person, whether you had long lines or not, that the administration of an election with so many constitutional amendments was a serious, serious problem, he said.STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, FEBRUARY5, 2013 A5 000DYO4 Hi, I am Brayden, today is my birthday I am one year old Mommy and Daddy Loves YOU Big Boy! 000DY8M DANIELLE 2013 Newest Model Visit www.21strepos.com to view more of our Repos.

She said she was honored to have her current team members have the opportunity to meet the members of this inaugural team. In the days before the OConnell Center, the inaugural team played in the Florida gym which was fondly known as Alligator Alley. The Florida gymnasium is used today for intramurals and classrooms. Lawmakers look for partners in state exchange Associated PressFORT LAUDERDALE Florida lawmakers heard Monday from two organizations that could serve as partners in running an insurance exchange under the federal health overhaul. Florida has missed the deadline to run its own online marketplace where people can shop for health coverage, but lawmakers are considering whether they want to run their own in the future or partner with federal health officials. During a meeting in Tallahassee on Monday, lawmakers explored options from organizations already running programs similar to federal exchanges that they could partner with instead of building something new. Florida Healthy Kids Corporation coordinates coverage for roughly 300,000 children and is responsible for selecting plans, collecting about $31 million a month in premiums and determining eligibility. Those are some of the main functions of the online exchanges. The organization deals with individual coverage, while the exchange will also have to offer insurance plans to small businesses, but Executive Director Rich Robleto said they are essentially running the main operations required by the exchange now. Florida has about 475,000 uninsured children. Its difficult to estimate how many would qualify if the state expanded its Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act. A third of those children are already eligible for Medicaid, but are not enrolled, said Robleto. He estimated between 75,000 and 100,000 children would come into the CHIP program and about that same number would be eligible for commercial coverage. Lawmakers also questioned whether there was a role for Florida Health Choices in the federal health overhaul. The program is essentially an online marketplace where small businesses can browse different health plans. Individuals should be able to shop the site this summer. But the federally mandated exchanges will also tell shoppers whether they are eligible for federal health subsidies to pay for the insurance. Are you concerned youre going to get preempted by the federal exchange because you dont offer the subsidy? asked Republican Sen. Joe Negron. It does make no sense for us to compete against a subsidized offering, said Rose Naff, CEO of Florida Health Choices. She said the organization will likely need to shift its presence in the market. South Florida Democratic Sen. Elaine Schwartz also complained that Florida Health Choices was started in 2008 and still isnt operational five years later. Naff said the website is slated to be up and running at the end of the month. Lawmakers questioned whether the two organizations could work together with the state on some type of exchange going forward.

the credibility of sports in general, following cyclist Lance Armstrongs admission that he used performance-enhancing drugs in all seven of his Tour de France wins. This is a sad day for European football (soccer), Europol Director Rob Wainwright told reporters. He said criminals were cashing in on soccer corruption on a scale and in a way that threatens the very fabric of the game. Europol said 425 match officials, club officials, players and criminals from at least 15 countries were involved in fixing European soccer games dating back to 2008. Ralf Mutschke, director of security at FIFA, the world soccer body, said the report highlighted the need for soccer authorities and police to tackle corruption together. The support of law enforcement bodies, legal investigations, and ultimately tougher sanctions are required, as currently there is low risk and high gain potential for the fixers, he said. Mutschke said while FIFA can ban players, referees and club officials, it is powerless to sanction people not directly involved in the sport. For people outside of football, currently the custodial sentences imposed are too weak and offer little to deter someone from getting involved in matchfixing, he said. Europol is not a police force, but provides expertise and helps coordinate national police across the 27-nation European Union. Its probe uncovered $10.9 million in betting profits and $2.7 million in bribes to players and officials and has already led to several prosecutions. Associated PressTHE HAGUE, Netherlands Organized crime gangs have fixed or tried to fix hundreds of soccer matches around the world in recent years, including World Cup and European Championship qualifiers and two Champions League games, Europol announced Monday. The European Unions police agency said an 18month review found 380 suspicious matches in Europe and another 300 questionable games outside the continent, mainly in Africa, Asia and South and Central America. It also found evidence that a Singapore-based crime syndicate was involved in some of the match-fixing. Europol refused to name any suspected matches, players, officials or match-fixers, saying that would compromise ongoing national investigations, so it remained unclear how much of the information divulged Monday was new or had already been revealed in trials across the continent. Even so, the picture painted by Europol was the latest body blow for Jessica Bond, 22DUNNELLONJessica Ann Michelle Bond, 22, of Dunnellon, died Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, at Tampa General Hospital.

Arrangements are by McGan Cremation Service LLC, Hernando. Dennis Delmain, 68LECANTODennis Duane Delmain, 68, of Lecanto, (aka Pops, Papa, Uncle Denny) went to join his parents; his oldest son, John; his nephews, Ivan Jr. and Sean; and sisterin-law Judy on Jan. 25, 2013. This is a summary of the life of one of the funniest, most honorable, talented, best-looking (he paid me to write that) men we have ever had the privilege of knowing. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, son, uncle and grandfather. He taught us you have to have a sense of humor about the good times and the bad, the importance of hard work and family. He was born Feb. 8, 1944, joining his parents, Ivan Dan and Mary Delmain and big brother, Ivan, in St. Louis, Mo. At age 18 a happy, hard-working young man faced the first of many challenges in his life. An accident in gym class during senior year left him with a broken neck. During his recovery he still managed to keep his sense of humor. He graduated Dunedin High School and became a firefighter with the Safety Harbor Fire Department and also was a master brick mason like his father and brother. The best day of his life was the day he met Joyce Annette. She gave him what he craved the most, a wonderful family, a solid marriage, friendship, partnership and a life that few people will ever witness. He always wanted to try new things. With his wife by his side, they were successful business owners, and owned Fireside Fireplaces and Dan-D Radiator in Homosassa and J&D Surplus in Carrabelle. An avid poker player, he won as much as he lost but always had fun. He was a knowledgeable and talented fisherman until his health failed him. He taught several generations of Delmains the finer points of card-playing and he schooled a few on some of the best fishing spots. He is survived by his extraordinary wife of 42 years and cornerstone of the family, Joyce Annette Delmain; sons Wayne (Cheryl) and Joe (Laura); grandchildren Blake (Stephanie), Samantha, John, Dennis (Shelly), Sean, Gianna and Niklas; great-grandchildren Michael, Travis, Oliver and Faith; brother Ivan; his special niece Marianne; nephew Duane (Donna); great-nephew Matthew; cousin Mike McCool; and second son James Conley. He will always be on the tips of our rods and in our hearts. Gloria Easton, 75INVERNESSGloria M. Easton, 75, of Inverness, died Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013, at Arbor Trail in Inverness.

Jessica Bond Dennis Delmain Mildred Gergovich Obituaries Womens baseball star, movie inspirer Davis dies Associated PressLOS ANGELES Lavonne Pepper PaireDavis, a star of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s and an inspiration for the central character in the movie A League of Their Own, has died, her son said Sunday. Paire-Davis died of natural causes in the Van Nuys section of Los Angeles on Saturday, her son, William Davis, told The Associated Press. She was 88. Paire-Davis was a model for the character played by Geena Davis in the 1992 hit A League of Their Own, which also starred Rosie ODonnell, Madonna and Tom Hanks as the crusty manager who shouted the famous line, Theres no crying in baseball! In 1944, Paire-Davis joined the league, created out of fear that World War II would interrupt Major League Baseball, and played for 10 seasons. She was a catcher and shortstop, and helped her teams win five championships. She chronicled her adventures in the 2009 book Dirt in the Skirt. I know what its like for your dream to come true; mine did, PaireDavis said in an AP story in 1995, when she was 70. Baseball was the thing I had the most fun doing. It was like breathing. The All American Girls Baseball League was founded in 1943 by Chicago Cubs owner Philip K. Wrigley. Most of the leagues talent came from greater Chicago, but PaireDavis was one of a halfdozen players scouted and chosen from California. The players wore skirts and the teams had cutesy names, but the players kept a genuine big-league schedule, playing 120 games over four months. We played every night of the week, Paire-Davis said, doubleheaders on Sundays and holidays. Match-fixing probe finds 680 suspicious games worldwide Associated PressLavonne Pepper Paire-Davis is seen June 11, 2010, at Yankee Stadium in New York. Davis, a star of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s and an inspiration for the movie A League of Their Own, has died in Southern California. She was 88. The probe uncovered $10.9 million in profits and $2.7 millionin bribes to players and officials.

Cigna to pay Buffetts firm $2.2BOMAHA, Neb. Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaway Inc. has agreed to cover up to $4 billion in insurance losses for Cigna Corp. in exchange for a $2.2 billion premium. Cigna, which is based in Bloomfield, Conn., announced the reinsurance deal with Berkshire on Monday. Buffetts Omaha-based company, which includes General Reinsurance, and Geico, will cover liabilities related to Cignas minimumdeath and minimum-income benefits businesses. Cigna says its unlikely claims will exceed $4 billion. Cigna said it expects to record a $500 million after-tax charge in the first quarter, but the transaction will allow Cigna to exit these businesses.Argentina orders price freezeBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Argentina announced a two-month price freeze on supermarket products Monday in an effort to stop spiraling inflation. The price freeze applies to every product in all of the nations largest supermarkets a group including Walmart, Carrefour, Coto, Jumbo, Disco and other large chains. The companies trade group, representing 70 percent of the Argentine supermarket sector, reached the accord with Commerce Secretary Guillermo Moreno, the governments news agency Telam reported. The commerce ministry wants consumers to keep receipts and complain to a hotline about any price hikes they see before April 1. Polls show Argentines worry most about inflation, which private economists estimate could reach 30 percent this year. The government says its trying to hold the next union wage hikes to 20 percent, a figure that suggests how little anyone believes the official index that pegs annual inflation at just 10 percent. Economist Soledad Perez Duhalde of the abeceb.com consulting firm predicted on Monday that the price freeze will have only a very shortterm effect, and noted that similar moves in Argentina had failed to control inflation. Consumers shouldnt be surprised if the supermarkets are slow to restock their shelves and offer fewer products for sale, she added. A more effective way to contain inflation would be to reduce government spending, which is financing an expansion of the money supply, and to have a credible price index. The government announced the price freeze on the first business day after the International Monetary Fund formally censured Argentina for putting out inaccurate economic data.S&P expects US lawsuit over ratingsWASHINGTON The U.S. government is expected to file civil charges against Standard & Poors Ratings Services, alleging that it improperly gave high ratings to mortgage debt that later plunged in value and helped fuel the 2008 financial crisis. The charges would mark the first enforcement action the government has taken against a major rating agency involving the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. S&P said Monday that the Justice Department had informed the rating agency that it intends to file a civil lawsuit focusing on S&Ps ratings of mortgage debt in 2007. The action does not involve any criminal allegations. Critics have long complained about the governments failure to bring criminal charges against any major Wall Street players involved in the financial crisis. Criminal charges would require a higher burden of proof and carry the threat of jail time.Oracle to buy Acme PacketREDWOOD SHORES, Calif. Oracle will buy Acme Packet Inc., which makes equipment for telecommunications companies, for about $2.1 billion. Acmes gear is used by more than 1,900 service providers and enterprises around the world. Its technology will complement Oracles offerings for telecoms providers, said Citigroup analyst Walter Pritchard. Oracle, a database software maker based in Redwood City, Calif., will pay $29.25 per share for Acme. That represents a 22 percent premium over the Bedford, Mass., companys Friday closing stock price.

Interestrates 000DXY1 Crystal River 305 S.E. US 19 352-795-7223 Associated PressStocks hit a big milestone, then promptly spun off the road. Major indexes dived the most this year Monday, the first trading day after the Dow broke 14,000 and closed at its highest level since the financial crisis. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped as much as 143 points in afternoon trading. It closed down 129.71, or 0.9 percent, at 13,880.08. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 17.46 points, or 1.2 percent, to 1,495.71. The Nasdaq composite index lost 47.93, or 1.5 percent, to 3,131.17. Mondays declines were the biggest drops this year for all three indexes. They followed a surge Friday that pushed the Dow over 14,000 for the first time since 2007, before the financial meltdown that routed world markets. Friday was only the tenth time in its history that the Dow closed above 14,000. The first was in July 2007; the rest were in October of that year. The index closed Friday just 155 points shy of its record high, set that October. The rally was powered by solid economic data, including a January jobs report that showed the labor market is strengthening gradually. A broad measure of manufacturing also rose sharply. The Dow is up nearly 6 percent this year. Yet Wall Streets celebratory mood was a distant memory Monday, as U.S. stocks followed European markets lower. Frances CAC-40 closed down 3 percent, Germanys DAX 2.5 percent. It started to look like things in the market are maybe getting a little ahead of themselves, compared to some of the data weve seen, said Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Asset Management Group. He said problems in Europe are also beginning to affect U.S. markets after several quiet months. Borrowing costs for Italy and Spain rose Monday, Stone noted, reflecting concerns among bond investors that those countries may be unable to meet their financial obligations. It kind of restarts some of the old worries that weve been able to ignore for quite some time, Stone said. In New York, Merck & Co. was among the Dows biggest losers, dropping 98 cents, or 2.3 percent, to $40.85. The pharmaceutical company said Friday that its earnings declined in the fourth quarter and 2013 might be weaker than analysts had hoped. Dow hits milestone, then takes plunge Associated PressWASHINGTON Interest rates on short-term Treasury bills were mixed in Mondays auction, with rates on three-month bills falling to the lowest level in four weeks while rates on six-month bills were unchanged. The Treasury Department auctioned $32 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.07 percent, down from 0.075 percent last week. Another $28 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.110 percent, unchanged from last week. The three-month rate was the lowest since three-month bills averaged 0.065 percent on Jan. 7. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the threemonth price was $9,998.23 while a six-month bill sold for $9,994.44. That would equal an annualized rate of 0.071 percent for the three-month bills and 0.112 percent for the sixmonth bills. Separately, the Federal Reserve said Monday that the average yield for oneyear Treasury bills, a popular index for making changes in adjustable rate mortgages, was unchanged at 0.15 percent last week, the same as the previous week.

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 Support our countryHave you noticed that there are people who write about matters that deal with unjust judges? Unfortunately they usually involve people in the government who have a job where they need to keep their mouths shut. When they dont, they wonder why they are vulnerable and end up in prison. Its no shock to me that they end up in trouble with the law. We have laws and secret and very high clearances on the books, and they must be adhered to. When we are at war, we particularly must learn to keep our mouths shut; otherwise, we could involve others who are in the military and they could end up dead or wounded. Its happened before. This is our country and we need to support it at all cost. Ruth J. Anderson HomosassaBlame courts We are fast to put the blame on guns for crimes. Lets put the blame where it belongs: the court system. A convicted felon gets caught doing a crime, not (the) first time. Hes in possession of guns he knows hes not supposed to have. He says they belong to another person. I think the law says hes not supposed to have any in his home. We all know if hes dealing in drugs, hes protecting his living. Lets get the courts to do their job and get the felons off the street instead of just slapping their hands and putting them back on the streets. Leave the honest gun owners alone.Harold DeLosh Crystal River And so it came, the coup de grace. The final barrier to opportunities for women in combat is no more. With a stroke of their pens, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin E. Dempsey decreed that no battlefield mission or military role is off-limits to females. The defense secretary and the general thus liberated mothers, daughters, sisters and wives to kill and be killed in the infantry, commando raids, even in Obama administration overseas contingency operations. In so doing, they also slashed away at that last institutional protection for the space that separates men and women, where civilization once grew. It (civilization) has been struggling there for decades, as social engineers and radical feminists all heirs to Marx have been cutting away at elemental human instinct, social grace, language and thought itself. This overhaul of manners and mores, the family structure and marriage even private aspects of the relationship between men and women has been successful to a point where the cultural argument against women in combat (women in the military being a lost cause) is rarely voiced, not even on the right. (I watched Fox News on women-incombat announcement day, listening in vain for just one culture warrior.) We are left to make only the utilitarian arguments body strength and speed, unit cohesion, even urinary tract infections and other hazards that front-line deployment pose to females. These are compellingly logical points, but they are unlikely to reverse an ideological juggernaut. When the secretary of defense says putting women in combat is about making our military ... and America stronger and no one says hes lying to further a Marxian ideal via social engineering, the cultural argument is lost, and the culture it comes from is bound and gagged, hostage to what we know as political correctness. I still see threads of the cultural argument in emails and some blog responses to the Pentagons latest whack at creating gender neutrality. It erupts like a reflex against the conditioning to deny differences defined, at their essence, by muscle mass and womb. Such conditioning erodes the male protective instinct which, surely, is what war is supposed to arise from and the female nurturing instinct, which surely is what a civilization depends on. No more. Women with wombs and without manly muscle mass now count as Pentagon-approved warriors, modern-day knights in Kevlar, soon to be humping 80-pound packs over mountain and desert. Or maybe not. Didnt Gen. Dempsey indicate dropping some of those old-fashioned strength and speed requirements might be in order? If we do decide that a particular standard is so high that a woman couldnt make it, Dempsey said last week, the burden is now on the service to come back and explain to the secretary, why is it that high? Does it really have to be that high? Of course not! Why train Navy SEALs when Navy OTTERs will do as well? And what about their children, when these front-line warriors bear them? And their pregnancies, when they decide its better for their mission, for their country, to terminate them? Dont think Daddy Government, once again, wont be a steady provider to his womenfolk. And why not? It is women who pass on the culture, my daughters pediatrician a font of human wisdom after six of his own kids and endless patients used to tell me, his voice rising over baby girls screaming. But what kind of gender-neutral culture will they pass on? Rather, what kind of genderneutral culture have women already passed on? After all, this penultimate shift at the Pentagon (will the NFL be next?) is just the tail end of something, not the beginning the rewiring of the human spirit. In other words, the whole movement in the name of equal rights has no more to do with women being legally able to apply for a credit card and other aspects of equality before the law than ordering women into combat is about making the military and America stronger. No, its about behavioral manipulation and transformation the Equal Rights Amendment by executive fiat. These changes have been a long time coming. In my lifetime, I have watched even post-1960s standards of femininity, for example, plunge to a point where female tendencies toward privacy, intimacy and modesty have given way to norms of clinical-style revelation and numbing brazenness and Im talking about todays nice girls, the ones who soon will be considered eligible for Selective Service. Yes, I know, only 15 percent of our all-volunteer military is female even after decades of active government courtship to woo women into the ranks and make a force that looks like America (not Obamas Cabinet), as Bill Clinton has put it. But dont think this opportunity for the few comes without strings to the many. As Army Col. Ellen Haring pointed out on PBS NewsHour last week, With full rights come full responsibilities. And then what? Will genderneutral raw recruits soon be brawling outside the bar (with the man beating the snot out of the woman, as one Iraq veteran recently suggested to me in an email)? Will gender-neutral male soldiers be trained out of their protective instinct toward women? Do we want to live with the results? One senior officer with multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan wrote this to me: I would never want my mother, sisters, wife or daughter to have to experience the ravages of combat or, worse, become a prisoner of war. It goes against every fiber of my being. Yesterdays man. For a better tomorrow, we need more like him.Diana West is the author of The Death of the Grown-up: How Americas Arrested Development Is Bringing Down Western Civilization, and blogs at dianawest.net.

JANE Proceed prudently with combat role expansion During the past decade, women have regularly been exposed to combat in Iraq and Afghanistan while serving in support roles. Acquitting themselves with courage and distinction, more than 150 women made the ultimate sacrifice, with more than 800 wounded. Given their proven performance in combat support roles, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, at the urging of the militarys Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently lifted the 1994 ban on women serving in close combat roles. The controversial issue raised by the lifting of the ban is not the exposure of women to enemy action, but whether they should participate in close combat with Army and Marine infantry units. Charged with the mission of closing with the enemy in order to kill or destroy them, infantry units, in aggressively taking the fight to the enemy, are often deployed in prolonged operations for weeks and months in a physically punishing environment, compounded by the most primitive living, personal hygiene and individual privacy conditions one could envisage. With the demands of the infantry battlefield far greater than the combat support arena, the lifting of the close combat ban raises two central concerns: the ability of women to sustain performance to the same physical standards required of infantrymen, and the creation of a sexually charged climate that could pose a risk to female service members, as well as good order and discipline on the battlefield. Recognizing women have about half the upper-body strength of men, Army and Marine basic physical fitness tests have different upperbody standards for men and women. Also, as affirmed by basic training statistics, women are more prone to stress fractures than males. Accordingly, the ability of women to hoist and methodically carry a 65-pound or heavier load on their backs, for long distances required of infantrymen, is questionable. With women comprising 14 percent of the armed forces, sexual assault is a major discipline problem. During the very week that Secretary Panetta lifted the close combat ban, the Pentagon reported 2,900 sexual assaults last year, an increase of nearly 9 percent, with close to two-thirds involving rape or aggravated assault. The Pentagon further estimated that 23 to 28 percent of female service members will be sexually assaulted at least once during the course of their service. With the odds of female service members being sexually assaulted by their fellow servicemen greater than their chances of being injured in combat, combining lifethreatening danger with underlying sexual tensions in a primeval environment particularly poses a risk to both the women assigned to infantry units and the good order and discipline essential for survival on the battlefield. Despite the lifting of the ban, numerous surveys of female service members indicate very few will seek the rigors of close combat. Nevertheless, for the few who do, the militarys uniformed and civilian leaders must prudently consider the physical differences between the sexes and the power of their attractions. Survival and victory on the battlefield cannot allow otherwise. THE ISSUE:Women in close combat.OUR OPINION:Good intentions may have battlefield consequences.

It just goes to show you that there are a lot of people around here that have no sense of humor. Calling others stupid and that you should be ashamed of yourself? One even said people should not take things literally. Whos the one who shouldnt be taking things literally? Personally, I enjoyed both the headline and the Sound Off in regard to the headline. So heres an answer to the question: I hear they taste like toasted chicken. Ha, ha. Have a good day.Port still confusingIn todays paper, Jan. 30, the editors note said the reason they want a port is to create jobs. OK, so the port is built, nothing shipped in, nothing shipped out. What becomes of the jobs? What uses it, really?Stop fretting You printed a lot of letters for and against the port. We do not need, want or cant accommodate a port, i.e., the barge canal. Useless money spent. For the ruling force of Citrus County, we are forced to do what they say. How much should we stand for? Even voting the port out does not stop them. The Citrus County boys do what they want, when they want. We have nothing to do about it. So quit worrying.

I assume he was indicating the $20,000 variety. I think that Mr. Art Jones and his volunteers and the publicity they got, I think it would just make us a shoo-in for that money, that Horizon oil spill money The sanitary system constructions meet every requirement for that moneyOne inexcusable fact due to the Progress Energy tax deal, were going to be hit with a another tax here in the county. The inspections and mainly the large costs of repairing a failed system of septic tanks is just going to be a whole lot to bear. Now in talking to folks, they would support some additional revenue for a sanitary system, and, to borrow a phrase from Congress, to just keep kicking the can on down the road. Now Ive always believed a pound of wisdom, theres 11 ounces out of a pound of wisdom thats nothing but common sense. I hope we can use it in this case.Pediatrician articlesI certainly enjoy reading the weekly articles by the physicians in the county. Im wondering if there is a pediatrician that would like to volunteer to write articles weekly about children and their general health.Gluten-free bread availableThis message is for the person needing gluten-free bread. I was able to find it for my family in Sweetbay in Crystal River. They have a section of it there. Also, the new Walmart in Lecanto has a section of gluten-free and in the freezer section of Crystal River Publix, they have gluten-free bread. Hope this helps.Dont trash it upI am a 71-year-old woman. I took up walking for my health. The first day I walked, I could hardly stand looking at the trash on the sides of the street. The second day, I brought a garbage bag and a glove. I picked up one side of the street. And on day three, I picked up the other side of the street. It really looked so nice and green and clean. I was so proud. On day four, the garbage had already started to accumulate here and there. I want to make a suggestion: Every automobile driver should carry a grocery bag under the seat. When they have the urge to discard the cans, bottles, McDonalds bags, clothes, cigarette boxes and any other trash, put it in the bag and take it out at your own home and discard it. Put a new bag in your car. We live in America. It is such a beautiful place to live. Why would anyone want to ruin it? I hope and pray that everyone reads this. Thank God we live in the United States of America, the most beautiful place in the world.Helmet law puzzlerIf there are any Florida legislators out there reading this column, please help me understand why the driver of an automobile surrounded by two tons of steel and many, many airbags must wear a seatbelt, whereas a motorcycle driver can cruise down the highway, protected by nothing, and is not required to wear a helmet.

Thanks Mr. KriegerI would like to make a comment about the letter from Mr. Krieger in Mondays paper (Feb. 4). He is right on. Thank you. Sound OFF Letters to the EDITOR Congress wants your gunsWhat a great point and counterpoint in the Sunday, Jan. 27, Chronicle. You will never see a better contrast between the workings of the liberal and the conservative mind. John McFadden starts us off with some hard facts on guns and murders in his column Testing amendment. John Read cant get past the first 50 words in his column, Its the guns, stupid, before he starts losing ground. His description of the .223 round as especially lethal shows a lack of knowledge and research on the subject. I would ask John, lethal compared to what? Its never good to be shot by anything, and any round has the potential to be fatal, but to call the .223 especially lethal is liberal distortion at its best. If he had said it has twice the energy of a .22 Hornet and half the energy of a .308 Winchester, we could have a conversation. The point is, it is one of the least lethal of the center fire rounds. John Read goes on to say that some groups to the right of the NRA think automatic weapons should be legal again. They are legal. You can own and shoot them. Its all legal. John McFadden gets right to the point when he points out the Obama administration means to test the Second Amendment. Their goal is the complete confiscation of all weapons from all private citizens. If you dont believe that, let me repeat this quote from Sen. Diane Feinstein, the author of the 1994 assault weapons ban and the author of a new one proposed for 2013. If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them. Mr. and Mrs. American turn em all in. I would have done it. John Read distorts the issue by saying The paranoid fear of tyrannical government is a huge motivator for many thousands of people to stockpile weapons. The Second Amendment is our protection. Do you remember when Obama said We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set. Weve got to have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. Unapproved by Congress and unreported by the liberal media, it has started. Following controversy over its purchase of around 1.2 billion bullets in the last six months alone, the Department of Homeland Security has put out a new solicitation for more than 200 million more rounds of ammunition, some of which are designated to be used by snipers. People wake up.Harley LawrenceHomosassa Hello, our water future is bleakFor 25 years I have watched the bureaucrats and politicians dance around the reality of Floridas natural water supply depletion and degradation. I have spent hundreds of hours on the Ocklawaha and Silver Rivers and the Harris Chain of Lakes, where agricultural nutrient loading and arbitrary water flow controls did one thing increased the poor quality of the ninelake system to the point that Lake Apopka could only support two things: a 90 percent biomass of shad and an algae bloom cycle that seldom allowed more visibility than 1 foot and obliterated sunshine penetration at 2 feet below the surface. As a child, I remember vividly the astounding numbers of fish, including two to three saltwater varieties that Silver Springs and its outflow hosted. I remember the small pond behind our Alachua area farm house that was fed by an artesian well roiling persistently and offgassing sulphur fumes that made me gag. However, my grandfather thought this place was the Fountain of Youth. Last Saturday, we attended a meeting of the Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc., in Yankeetown, to hear a presentation by Dr. Bob Knight, founder and director of the Florida Springs Institute. Armed with facts, logical examination of historic data and common sense, Bob Knight presents an irrefutable analysis of the Floridan Aquifers status and the states water supply. There are approximately 10,000 springs and/or natural wells across the state. There are 27 springs of 1st magnitude. Two of these are classic examples of overuse of the aquifer ground water resource. Silver Springs at one time was the leader in water flow and Rainbow Springs outflow, though less in gallons per day, paralleled that of Silver Springs; i.e. when flows increased in Silver they did likewise with Rainbow Springs. Decreased flows mirrored the same pattern. Today, outflow for Silver Springs has fallen to such a point that Rainbow Springs daily outflow actually exceeds Silver Springs. Water consumption surrounding the Ocala area has reached a point where as water extraction from the aquifer exceeds recharge, natural outflow at the surface continues to fall. In Jacksonville/Duval, water consumption has lowered the aquifer enough that the greater pressure from the surrounding aquifer system of South Georgia and to the west in the Suwannee River watershed are now flowing east to the Jacksonville area and causing interdicted spring flows and historic low water levels in the Suwannee River and surrounding area. Ask people in the Big Bend if the quality of their oysters has degraded recently. If you recall, its only been in recent years that Tampa Bay began searching desperately for a replacement source for their water supply. Theyve even come to our back yard proposing to pipe our water south from the Withlacoochee! Dr. Knight also revealed the awful fact that Consumptive Use Permits for Agriculture, Business and Residential appear to represent a solid mass on the topographical map of the area from Ocala to our part of the west coast. These permits issued by our water management districts cost the applicants very little in fees; and the millions of dollars in our public water supply that they pump out cost them nothing into perpetuity. We are ignoring the obvious. We are inviting a natural disaster that knows no scope of limits. If we allow the Water Management Districts and the Florida legislature to continue with present water policy we only have ourselves to blame.Steve Kesterson Sr. InglisContradiction on crimeBob Wardrop has a whole list of list complaints, which he blames on the nations social ills (which) have contributed to explosions in its financial ills. (Citrus CountyChronicle, Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013). Marriage between homosexuals in several states and the percent to 50 percent of teens (who) are sexually active are apparently part and parcel of our national debt, according to Waldrop; but, for the sake of me, I dont how. He is likely right when he points out that ,000 15-to-19-year-old (single) females (who) become pregnant add somewhat to the debt. But he contradicts himself, when he says, the estimated (750,000 to 1 million fetuses) from abortion also add to the debt. About those abortions, the writer said while nearly 3,000 people died in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, almost the same number of unborn children are murdered in America every day. Au contraire! Murder in the United States of America is a crime; abortion is not. I mean, will someone next be calling Floridas sales taxation thievery?James McIntosh Lecanto

The museum held a 12hour celebration of the 100th anniversary of Parks birth. Judge knocks school funding AUSTIN, Texas The system Texas uses to fund public schools violates the states constitution by not providing enough money to school districts and failing to distribute it fairly, a judge ruled Monday in a landmark decision that could force the Legislature to overhaul the way it pays for education. Moments after closing arguments in his packed courtroom, state District Judge John Dietz ruled the funding mechanism does not meet the Texas Constitutions requirements for a fair and efficient system that provides a general diffusion of knowledge. He declared that funding was inadequate and that there were wide discrepancies in state support received by school districts in wealthy parts of Texas versus those in poorer areas. He also said the system is tantamount to an income tax, which is forbidden by the state constitution. It was the second time in less than a decade the state has been ordered to remake its school finance system.Scout leaders mull policy changeIRVING, Texas The Boy Scouts of Americas national executive board began three days of closed meetings Monday that are expected to include a discussion of its policy excluding gay members and leaders, and Scouts on both sides of the debate are publically weighing in. Several current and former Scouts, leaders and their supporters rallied outside the organizations nearby national headquarters in Irving, Texas, armed with four boxes of what they said were 1.4 million signatures on a petition opposing the Scouts current policy.Woman charged in slaying testifiesPHOENIX A woman charged in the savage stabbing and shooting death of her lover told jurors Monday how she endured an abusive childhood at the hands of her parents and planned to commit suicide after she killed her on-again, offagain boyfriend. Jodi Arias testimony was a surprise move by defense attorneys in a sensational murder trial in Phoenix that has become a daily fixture on cable news with its lurid stories of sex, lies, religion, betrayal and violence. Arias, 32, could become just the fourth woman on Arizonas death row if convicted. Arias testimony aimed to portray her as a childhood abuse victim and naive teenager who stayed with boyfriends even after they cheated on her and became violent at times.

Canada begins phasing out pennyTORONTO Canada started phasing out its penny, the nuisance coins that clutter dressers and cost more than their onecent value to produce. The Royal Canadian Mint on Monday officially ended its distribution of pennies to financial institutions. Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced last year they were a nuisance and have outlived their purpose. While people may still use pennies, the government has issued guidelines urging store owners to start rounding prices to the nearest nickel for cash transactions. Electronic purchases will still be billed to the nearest cent.Check stirs anger in VenezuelaCARACAS, Venezuela Venezuelas opposition is demanding that the government explain how a former Iranian official ended up with a check in Venezuelan currency worth about $70 million. Venezuelas opposition coalition said in a statement on Monday that the government should clear up why the Iranian had a check for 300 million Venezuelan bolivars that was found by German customs authorities. The German newspaper Bild am Sonntag reported in its Sunday edition that the man who was trying to enter Germany with the check was Tahmasb Mazaheri, Irans former central bank chief. The weekly reported customs officials at Duesseldorf airport found the check in his luggage on Jan. 21 upon his arrival from Turkey, and that Mazaheri told authorities the money was to be used for the construction of 10,000 apartments funded by the Venezuelan government. President Hugo Chavezs government has built close ties with Irans government in recent years.Girl shot by Taliban resurfacesLONDON In her first video statement since she was nearly killed, a Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban remained defiant in arguing for girls education, saying Monday she would keep up the same campaign that led to her attack.

Authorities stormed an underground bunker Monday in Alabama, freeing a 5year-old boy who had been held hostage for nearly a week in the tiny backyard shelter and leaving the boys abductor dead. After days of fruitless negotiations, talks had deteriorated with an increasingly agitated Jimmy Lee Dykes, who had kidnapped the child from a school bus after fatally shooting the driver. Dykes had been seen with a gun, and officers concluded the boy was in imminent danger, said Steve Richardson of the FBIs office in Mobile. Officials refused to say how the 65-year-old died. Ever since this started, theres never been a moment that (the boy) wasnt on my mind, said Michael Senn, pastor of a church near where reporters had been camped out since the standoff began. So when I heard that he was OK, it was just like a thousand pounds lifted off of me. The rescue capped a long drama that drew national attention to this town of 2,400 people nestled amid peanut farms and cotton fields that has long relied on a strong Christian faith, a policy of love thy neighbor and the power of group prayer. The childs plight prompted nightly candlelight vigils. Throughout the ordeal, authorities had been speaking with Dykes though a plastic pipe that went into the shelter. They also sent food, medicine and other items into the bunker, which apparently had running water, heat and cable television but no toilet. It was about 4 feet underground, with about 50 square feet of floor space. Authorities said the kindergartner appeared unharmed. He was taken to a hospital in nearby Dothan. Officials have said he has Aspergers syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Associated PressFORT WORTH, Texas The Iraq War veteran charged with killing a former Navy SEAL sniper and his friend on a Texas shooting range told a relative that he traded his soul for a new truck, according to police documents. Eddie Ray Routh, 25, is charged with one count of capital murder and two counts of murder in the shooting deaths of ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, author of the best-selling book American Sniper, and his friend Chad Littlefield at a shooting range Saturday. Authorities said the three men arrived at the sprawling Rough Creek Lodge in Glen Rose on Saturday afternoon, and a hunting guide discovered the bodies of Kyle and Littlefield about two hours later and called 911. They were shot multiple times, and numerous guns were at the scene, according to an Erath County arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA-TV. Routh then drove Kyles pickup to his sisters house in Midlothian and told her that he killed two people, and she called police, the affidavit says. Routh also said he wanted to drive to Oklahoma to avoid Texas authorities, the affidavit says. Routh was arrested after a short police pursuit in Lancaster, where he lives. Police records from Lancaster show Routh was taken to mental hospital on Sept. 2 after threatening to kill his family and then commit suicide. Authorities found Routh walking nearby with no shirt and no shoes, and smelling of alcohol. Routh told authorities he was a Marine veteran who was suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder. Eddie stated he was hurting and that his family does not understand what he has been through, the report said. Rouths mother told police that her son had been drinking and became upset when his father said he was going to sell his gun. She said Routh began arguing with them and said he was going to blow his brains out. Police took Routh to Green Oaks Hospital for psychiatric care. Dallas police records show Routh was taken back to the same mental hospital Jan. 19 after a woman called police and said she feared for Rouths safety. Routh is on suicide watch in the Erath County Jail, where hes being held on $3 million bond, Sheriff Tommy Bryant said. Vet who shot sniper was troubled Affidavit: Accused killer said he traded his soul for truck Associated PressLEICESTER, England He was king of England, but for centuries he lay without shroud or coffin in an unknown grave, and his name became a byword for villainy. On Monday, scientists announced they had rescued the remains of Richard III from anonymity and the monarchs fans hope a revival of his reputation will soon follow. In a dramatically orchestrated news conference, a team of archaeologists, geneticists, genealogists and other scientists from the University of Leicester announced that tests had proven what they scarcely dared to hope a scarred and broken skeleton unearthed under a drab municipal parking lot was that of the 15th-century king, the last English monarch to die in battle. Lead archaeologist Richard Butler said that a battery of tests proved beyond reasonable doubt that the remains were the kings. Lin Foxhall, head of the universitys school of archaeology, said the discovery could end up rewriting a little bit of history in a big way. Few monarchs have seen their reputations decline as much after death as Richard III. He ruled England between 1483 and 1485, during the decades-long battle over the throne known as the Wars of the Roses, which pitted two wings of the ruling Plantagenet dynasty York and Lancaster against one another. After his death, historians writing under the victorious Tudors comprehensively trashed Richards reputation, accusing him of myriad crimes most famously, the murder of his two nephews, the Princes in the Tower. William Shakespeare indelibly depicted Richard as a hunchbacked usurper who left a trail of bodies on his way to the throne before dying in battle, shouting My kingdom for a horse. That view was repeated by many historians, and Richard remains a villain in the popular imagination. But others say Richards reputation was unjustly smeared by his Tudor successors. Philippa Langley of the Richard III Society which seeks to restore the late kings reputation and backed the search for his grave said that for centuries Richards story has been told by others, many of them hostile. She hopes a new surge of interest, along with evidence from the skeleton about how the king lived and died and how he was mistreated after death will help restore his reputation. A wind of change is blowing, one that will seek out the truth about the real Richard III, she said. Langley, who helped launch the search for the king, said she could scarcely believe her quest had paid off. Remains of Richard III found Reviled king made famous by Shakespeare

The Miami New Times reported last week that Rodriguez bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances during 2009-12 from Biogenesis of America LLC, a nowclosed anti-aging clinic in Coral Cables, near Rodriguezs offseason home. The new public relations firm for the three-time AL MVP issued a statement denying the allegations. I dont comment on anyone until they speak first, Jeter said Monday.

No. 2-seeded Citrus and third-seeded Lecanto face off Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the semifinal round of the 6A-6 tournament at Central, with the victor getting a regional berth and moving on to play the winner between top-seeded West Port and either No. 4 seed Central (7-16) or No. 5 Springstead (416) for the district title at 7 p.m. Friday. The Hurricanes (14-10 overall) and Panthers (17-6) each claimed a home meeting with one another to split their regular-season series. Lecanto is seeking a second consecutive district title, and has won four straight games since falling to the Wolf Pack for the second time this season. Panthers head coach Frank Vilardi was most concerned about his teams health heading into the tournament, with standout senior Richie Rizzolo out with a back injury for much of the season and senior center Geoffrey Ruiz dealing with a broken thumb, as well as the flu hitting a couple of players. Its going to be tough. Citrus is a great team, and weve had some great battles with them, Vilardi said last week. Were looking forward to getting into the districts and seeing what we can do. Weve got to get healthy. Citrus lost three of its past four contests, but with big offensive production from junior Devin Pryor and sophomore Desmond Franklin recently handed West Port its second district loss of the season to clinch the second seed.

The Crystal River Lady Pirates softball team opened up 2013 with a 17-1 rout of visiting Trinity Catholic on Monday night in a mercy-ruleshortened four innings. Contributions came from every spot in the order as Crystal River (1-0) batted around in the second inning, with every hitter reaching base and scoring before Trinity Catholic (0-1) could record the first out. The Lady Pirates jumped out to a 12-1 lead by the time the inning was over. Two innings later, RBI singles from Laynee Nadal and pinch hitter Samantha Jenkins sealed the quickened victory over Trinity Catholic starting pitcher Cassandra Lawler (four innings, 11 earned runs, 16 hits, two walks, three strikeouts). The Celtics grabbed an early 1-0 lead on a Lawler single up the middle, scoring Holly Hagans, who led off the game with a base hit. But in the bottom half, Marissa Pool blasted a two-out triple down the left-field line to the fence. Danielle Gomez followed with a single to left, scoring Pool, and an outfield error allowed Gomez to come all the way to the plate, making it 2-1 Crystal River. Then the floodgates opened. Base hits by Bridget Whitley and McCale Wilson were followed by Catherine Desomma reaching on an error to load the bases with none out. Whitley and Wilson both scored on passed balls, and Chloe Lane came up with an infield single to reload the bases. Pool promptly unloaded them, roping a two-run single to left to make it 6-1.

Larry Roedel, a lawyer for the state board that oversees the Superdome, said Monday that the outage did not appear to be related to work done on the stadiums electrical system in December. The work, approved by the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District last fall, replaced feeder equipment connecting the stadium to power provider Entergy New Orleans. Entergy and the company that manages the Superdome, SMG, said Sunday that an abnormality occurred where stadium equipment intersects with an Entergy electric feed, causing a breaker to create the outage. It remained unclear Monday exactly what the abnormality was or why it occurred. But Doug Thornton, manager of the Superdome, called the outage an equipment error, not a human one. He said that when the power outage hit, meters indicated the stadium was drawing less power than it does during a typical New Orleans Saints game. The air conditioning system was running, he said, but on less power than it does in September. Thornton said millions of dollars have been spent upgrading electrical equipment in the building since Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, and none of it failed. He said it was working properly when power was restored. He also said there is no evidence that the halftime show had anything to do with the outage, which struck early in the third quarter. He said the show used its own dedicated generator and wasnt using the Superdomes power supply. Mayor Mitch Landrieu told WWL-AM on Monday that the city still wants to make a bid Associated PressNEW ORLEANS The NFL says there was a plan B to finish the Super Bowl on Sunday night. The Superdome had a backup power system that was about to be used during the NFL championships electrical outage, but it wasnt needed because power started coming back at that time, Commissioner Roger Goodell said. The NFL has contingency plans for game interruptions, regardless of the cause. The 34-minute Super Bowl delay occurred when a piece of monitoring equipment sensed an abnormality in the electrical load feeding the dome, officials have said. But the game wasnt in danger of being postponed because of the backup system. That was not a consideration last night, NFL vice president of business operations Eric Grubman said at a news NFL says it was ready with backup system Citrus is a great team, and weve had some great battles with them.Frank Vilardihead coach of Lecanto boys basketball team.

Maybe did do that, in high school, and havent felt your spikes scraping the track on the homestretch, under the stadium lights, in far too long. Heres your chance. Lecanto High School invites all to the inaugural Nature Coast Legends of the Spring track and field meet on Saturday, Feb. 16, at Lecanto Stadium. Lecanto girls track team head coach Robbie Thompson is organizing the event and hosting after longtime Citrus County track coaches Freddie Bullock and Dan Epstein approached him with the idea. Thompson is eager to encourage all comers to join in on the festivities, spreading the love of track and field throughout the area and to people of all ages. Our goal with this is to make a meet that we do every year and that people want to come to, Thompson said. Weve had a lot of success with the younger kids at the All Comers meet that weve done here at Lecanto, and we want to keep that going. In other words, Thompson said, this is promoting track and field. (And) for the sake of the kids, like me, who did track (in high school) and never did it again, its kind of a way for those people who love track to come out and relive that experience. And hopefully we can share that experience with others. Three meets will be conducted during the daylong event: A Future Legends meet for students in grades 7 to 12; a Legends All-Comers meet for those in pre-K to those in sixth grade; and the Masters/Open for all others.

Associated PressMembers of the Mediapolis High School girls basketball team pose for a photo Feb. 1 in Mediapolis, Iowa. The dynamic of one of Iowas best high school basketball teams is defined by an extraordinary coincidence of five sets of sisters. Front row: Allison Hedges, Darby Massner, Heidi Hillyard, Rachel Holsteen, Aubrey Siegle. Back row: Ashley Hedges, Allie Massner, Haley Hillyard, Jessica Holsteen, Chloe Siegle. Associated PressMEDIAPOLIS, Iowa You could say the girls on the Mediapolis High School basketball team are like sisters to each other. And theres a good chance youd be right. The Bullettes feature four sets of sisters on a team that is 20-1 and ranked seventh in Iowa for its class. That doesnt even count Aubrey Siegle and her sibling, Chloe, the team manager. The girls recently won their conference and could become the first Mediapolis squad since 1987 to earn a berth in the eight-team state tournament finals. Youve played with them growing up, so you can guess what theyre going to do. You know what kind of player they are, said senior Allison Hedges, whose sister Ashley is a freshman on the team. You know what move theyre going to make. In fact, sibling intuition is often the best play in the Mediapolis playbook. Post player Haley Hillyard recalled getting stuck in the corner with a pass thrown by her little sister, Heidi, during a recent practice. Haley figured Heidis next move was a sharp cut to the basket, even though Haley seemed boxed in. Without a word and barely a glance, Haley chucked it through traffic and to Heidi for a layup. Those moments happen quite a lot. Mediapolis is a rural farming town of about 1,500 tucked in the southeast corner of the state, just west of the Mississippi River, with a quiet Main Street anchored by diners, a post office and the local paper. Despite its size, the town has always been something of a hotbed for girls basketball. The school qualified for the state tournament in 6-on-6 basketball 21 times between 1962 and 1987 under coach Vernon McLearn, an Iowa legend. The atrium of the school, within sight of a pair of cornfields, is decorated with dozens of plaques and trophies celebrating the teams storied past, and the girls pass by that shrine every day on the way to the gym. It doesnt stop at hoops, either. Four sets of these sisters play on the volleyball team, which made it all the way to the state semifinals. Three of the pairs are also cousins. Were each others biggest criticizers. Like, if youre doing something wrong (wed say), Well, you should have drove, you should have not done that. Well tell each other because were sisters. Nobody else is going to say anything about it, Haley Hillyard said. According to Rachel Holsteen, living under the same roof also helps. They can get mad at you, but they have to get over it sometime, she said.

The Heat improved to 19-3 on their home floor. Ramon Sessions scored 18 points for Charlotte, which lost its fourth in a row and 12th in the last 14. Ben Gordon had 16 points as six Bobcats players scored in double digits. Neither team shot well on 3pointers as Miami was 1 for 12 and Charlotte 8 of 25. The Bobcats scored nine straight points to take a 72-69 lead with 9:25 left. Miami countered with a 14-2 run with James scoring six points to go ahead 83-74 with 4:59 remaining. Sessions made two free throws to pull the Bobcats to 89-87 with 1:38 left, but James passed Bosh for a dunk to make it 91-87 with 1:13 on the clock. Following a timeout, Kemba Walker missed a 3-pointer and James grabbed a rebound, then drove for a layup to give Miami a six-point lead with 37 seconds left. Charlotte got no closer than five points the rest of the way.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE conference Monday. That is not what was at play. Goodell was sitting with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie during the game. The Meadowlands will host next years Super Bowl. We already had the conversation, Goodell said about avoiding a repeat of the blackout. This is clearly something that can be fixed, and its clearly something that we can prepare for. And we will. Grubman said Goodell has the sole authority to enforce any contingency plans, and was in perfect position to do so Sunday night. He was there and he had the full reports, Grubman said. We were quickly able to determine we did not have a situation that would cause a permanent interruption in the game. There were no safety issues, we had multiple equipment and sources of power. And if they didnt? While declining to be specific, Grubman said the league has backup plans for continuing the game. Those plans all focus on playing the full 60 minutes, regardless of whether it is the same day or on another day. So its unlikely that the Ravens, ahead 28-6 at the time of the partial blackout, would have simply been declared the winners and awarded the Lombardi Trophy. In the end, Baltimore still won, beating San Francisco 34-31. it 11-1. Everybody contributed, everybody did what they needed to do, said Wentworth. I think we will see a lot of offense from our team. Pool went 3 for 4 with a double, triple, two RBI and four runs scored. Nadal (2 for 4, double, two RBI, two runs), Gomez (2 for 4, RBI, steal, two runs) and Whitley (2 for 2, two RBI, two runs, walk) were just some of the biggest bats. Wilson was 2 for 3 with one RBI while hurling four innings for the win, holding Trinity Catholic hitless over the final three innings. On the night, the Celtics managed two hits and one earned run while compiling four strikeouts. Wentworth said of Wilsons performance, It was a little shaky of a start, but she settled down and got the job done. Crystal River will host Citrus at 7 p.m. Friday. to host the NFLs championship game again in 2018 and that the outage wont hurt its chances. Landrieu said league owners were impressed with the citys performance as host and even joked that the game got better after the blackout. People were leaving and the game was getting boring, so we had to do a little something to spice it up, he said. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said New Orleans was a terrific Super Bowl host and that the outage wont affect future bids. I fully expect that we will be back here for Super Bowls, Goodell said. And I hope we will be back. We want to be back. Goodell also said the Superdome had a backup power system ready to go, and it was about to be used when the power started coming back on. The Superdome sits on a 52-acre former railroad yard in the business district. Though only a block from City Hall, the 76,000-seat stadium and the adjacent New Orleans Arena are owned by the state, and the sevenmember commission that oversees them is appointed by Gov. Bobby Jindal. The Superdome was built at a cost of $134 million and opened in 1975. It has been the home to the NFLs New Orleans Saints since then. The first Super Bowl was played there in 1978. Sundays game was the seventh Super Bowl at the stadium, and the 10th overall for New Orleans. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina ripped off the Superdome roof as an estimated 30,000 people huddled inside. defeat the Wolf Pack and has a couple of 2-point losses, including one in overtime, to the Canes, suggesting the Bears are capable of making waves as a fourth seed at home. Crystal River (11-12 overall) had its best regular season in years behind the versatility and scoring of junior Ty Reynolds and the development of sophomore power forward Sam Franklin. But it still faces a stiff path through the 5A-7 tournament, hosted by Eustis, with Nature Coast Technical (21-3), Eustis (16-9), Hernando (17-7) and Tavares (5-15) holding the top four seeds, respectively. The Pirates finished tied with Dunnellon (5-20) to force a coin flip for the fifth and sixth seeds. The Tigers won the flip, but Crystal River prefers its No. 6 spot, which earns it a meeting with Hernando in the opening round at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, and a game with the No. 2-seeded Panthers on Wednesday if they advance. Crystal River lost by two to Eustis and by five to Hernando in January. We think we match up much better with Hernando than Tavares, Pirates coach Steve Feldman said last week on his clubs seeding preference. If Crystal River gets to the 5A-7 title game, which is 7 p.m. Friday, it will spend more than nine hours traveling in four days. As host of the 2A-4 tournament, No. 3 seed Seven Rivers Christian (11-10 overall) gets to avoid the Pirates travel burden. The Warriors play second-seeded St. John Lutheran at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the semifinals. A victory over the Saints would guarantee Seven Rivers a spot in the regional playoffs and put the Warriors into Fridays 7 p.m. championship game against the winner between No. 1 seed First Academy, a team the Warriors have defeated this season, and either No. 4-seededMeadowbrook Academy or fifth-seeded Cornerstone Academy. With three players over 6-foot-4, St. John presents a size challenge for Seven Rivers, which lost by four in both its games with the Saints this season. But the Warriors, led by junior Adam Gages 30 points, showed they can compete well with the Saints when the two played to a tie through the first 29 minutes of their December meeting at Seven Rivers before the Warriors fell.

Shakira shares first baby photoMADRID Shakira is sharing the first public photograph of her recently born baby, with father Gerard Piqu planting a kiss on his infant sons cheek. The 36-year-old Colombian singer announced Monday on Twitter that the photo of my two angels could be seen on the website of UNICEF. She has urged people to donate to a baby shower on behalf of needy children helped by the U.N. childrens agency. The photo shows Milan, who was born Jan. 22 in Barcelona, apparently sleeping in the arms of his father. The 25-year-old Piqu is an FC Barcelona soccer star.NFL: Beyonce didnt cause blackoutNEW YORK Dont blame Beyonce for blowing the lights out at the Super Bowl. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Monday the halftime show was absolutely not the cause of the power outage that darkened the Superdome for half an hour. Beyonce was the halftime performer at the game and used plenty of power to light up the stage. Some joked her electrifying performance was to blame for the outage.Ballet chief: I know who attackers wereMOSCOW The artistic director of the Bolshoi ballet said he knows who ordered an acid attack that left him with severe burns to his eyes and face but wont say. Sergei Filin checked out of a Moscow hospital Monday and headed to Germany for further rehabilitation. Filin, 42, wore shades and a bandage on his head. But he spoke energetically and seemed to be in good spirits. Filin earlier told Russian state television he knew who ordered the attack but wouldnt give names. He said investigators would visit him in Germany as part of the continuing probe. An attacker threw sulphuric acid in Filins face in Moscow on Jan. 17, as he was returning home from work. His colleagues said the attack on Filin could be in retaliation for his selection of certain dancers over others for the prized roles. Filin told reporters Monday he will have to undergo further eye surgery in Germany. I dont care about my face, my hair, my looks, he said in the television interview. Im ready to be completely bald, look like a Frankenstein. It will have no impact on my heart, on my soul. Birthday You could be very lucky in the year ahead where personal relationships are concerned. You will have more friends than ever. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Involvements with authority figures will work out in your favor, whether they were deliberately orchestrated or occur by happenstance. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Establish some definite objectives for the day, but keep them private. Youll find you will perform far more effectively. Aries (March 21-April 19) Certain knowledge you recently acquired can be used constructively on a current project. You can not only better your own lot in life, but improve things for associates as well. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Take the reins, because your leadership abilities can be a critical factor in revitalizing a joint endeavor that has been going downhill. Your new direction can produce success. Gemini (May 21-June 20) It looks like balance and harmony can be restored in a situation that has become increasingly unsettling. Your efforts, coupled with anothers, will be mostly responsible. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Certain things that have been impossible to handle on your own can be achieved with the help of surrogates if you motivate them properly. Make sure they can benefit as well, and youll all do quite well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) A partnership arrangement can become far more productive if you provide the initiative and let the other person serve as a backup. It could be totally up to you to rev the engines. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A number of important assignments youve been unable to conclude satisfactorily can be finalized by prioritizing them and then knocking them off one at a time. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your popularity is peaking right now, and the impression youre making in your social encounters is favorable and lasting. Youll not find a better time to circulate and make new friends. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Financial trends are far more favorable than they might be tomorrow. If youre involved in something that could spell profit, make every minute count. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Youll not only be a fast thinker, but you should also be able to express yourself in an eloquent and effective manner. All your comments will receive serious consideration. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A venture in which youre presently involved looks like it could be turned into a financial winner, even though you might have to use a slightly different approach than you normally would.

Associated PressAuthor Maurice Sendak speaks Sept. 6, 2011, during an interview at his home in Ridgefield, Conn. Sendak died in May at age 83, but had managed to finish My Brothers Book, published this week. Associated Press NEW YORK The last completed book we are likely to get from Maurice Sendak remembers a man he often insisted was the real genius of the family, his brother Jack. Sendak died last May at age 83 after years of health problems, but had managed to finish My Brothers Book, published this week. Admirers of Where the Wild Things Are and other Sendak stories will recognize its themes of danger, flight and fantasy, captured in a dreamy-scary swirl that demonstrates Sendaks debt to William Blake. Brothers Guy and Jack are blasted apart by a fiery star, Jack to continents of ice and Guy into the lair of a bear who attempts to choke Guy and devour him. Guy enrages the bear by asking him a riddle and is flung upon a couch of flowers/in an iceribbed underworld. Inside a greenish curtain of blossoms, he spies the nose of Jack and bites it to make sure he has found him. And Jack slept safe/Enfolded in his brothers arms/And Guy whispered Good night/And you will dream of me. Tony Kushner, a close friend, says that Sendak spoke often of his brother, who died in 1995, and longed to see him again. My Brothers Book is based on Shakespeares A Winters Tale, a bittersweet story of loss and reunion so personal to Sendak that the author sobbed throughout a production Kushner took him to years ago, the playwright says. According to Kushner, Sendak wrote the text in the late 1990s and kept it in a drawer with other possible projects. As his health declined, Sendak began thinking more about his legacy. He was well aware of the story of Verdi, whose masterpiece Falstaff premiered when the composer was 80. And that became an intimidating factor for him (Sendak). He was putting a lot of pressure on himself to make a masterpiece at the end, Kushner says. Kushner noted the illustrations for My Brothers Book were a window into Sendaks health and frame of mind. He had developed cataracts and the work seemed to reflect, almost literally, the world as Sendak saw it. You see his vision worsening, the hand getting shakier, Kushner says of the illustrations in Sendaks book. On days he felt too bad to work, he was absolutely miserable. Right after he had cataract surgery, he was lamenting he couldnt draw and he was getting depressed and angry about it. I remember one day I came into the house (in Ridgefield, Conn.) and he didnt hear me. I went into his work room and there he was at the drawing table, his nose up to the paper, hand over one eye. And he was drawing. JEFFAYERS Associated PressLisa Gardner, the master of the psychological thriller, has delivered another tour de force with Touch & Go, which exposes the raw nerves of a family imploding, and an investigator trying to escape her past. Justin Denbe and his wife, Libby, return from a night out to discover intruders in their home. They witness their 15-year-old daughter, Ashlyn, being attacked with a stun gun before they are attacked as well. Abducted, the family is taken to an abandoned penitentiary. As they wait to learn their captors motive, they struggle to be civil to one other. (Justin had an affair, Libbyis addicted to painkillers, and Ashlyn has a secret boyfriend.) Private investigator Tessa Leoni still lives with the aftermath of the horrible events that changed her life, as told in Gardners earlier novel, Love You More. She is hired by Denbe Construction to investigate the familys kidnapping. Gardner does an amazing job of creating realistic situations and characters with emotional resonance. The constant surprises will shock even the most jaded reader. A character says in the beginning of the novel, Pain has a flavor. The question is, what does it taste like to you? Touch & Go is the opposite of pain; its a total pleasure. Review: Gardners Touch & Go a winner Associated PressNEW YORK With a partial power outage, an overly excited quarterback and a game that suddenly turned from snoozer to sizzler, CBS had its hands full at the Super Bowl. The game fell short of setting a viewership record, but it stands as the third most-watched program in U.S. television history. The Nielsen Co. said an estimated 108.4 million people watched the Baltimore Ravens 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The most-watched events in U.S. TV history were last years game, seen by 111.3 million, and the 2010 game, with 111 million viewers. Baltimore had the highest rating of any individual city, Nielsen said. San Francisco was not among the top 10 cities in ratings.

Brain fever unmasked Associated PressDr. Beth Tarini, a pediatrician and researcher at the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor, Mich., poses Jan. 30 with a selection of LittleHouse books written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Tarini is the author of a study that suggests that Mary Ingal ls, sister of Laura Ingalls Wilder, went blind from a meningitis-like disease and not scarlet fever. How did Little House sister really become blind? Not scarlet fever LINDSEYTANNER AP medical writer CHICAGOAny fan of Laura Ingalls Wilders beloved Little House books knows how the authors sister Mary went blind: scarlet fever. But turns out that probably wasnt the cause, medical experts say, upending one of the more dramatic elements in the classic stories. An analysis of historical documents, biographical records and other material suggests another disease that causes swelling in the brain and upper spinal cord was the most likely culprit. It was known as brain fever in the late 1800s, the setting for the mostly true stories about Wilders pioneer family. Scarlet fever was rampant and feared at the time, and it was likely often misdiagnosed for other illnesses that cause fever, the researchers said. Wilders letters and unpublished memoir, on which the books are based, suggest she was uncertain about her sisters illness, referring to it as some sort of spinal sickness. And a registry at an Iowa college for blind students that Mary attended says brain fever caused her to lose her eyesight, the researchers said. They found no mention that Mary Ingalls had a red rash that is a hallmark sign of scarlet fever. Its caused by the same germ that causes strep throat. It is easily treated with antibiotics that didnt exist in the 1800s and is no longer considered a serious illness. Doctors used to think blindness was among the complications, but thats probably because they misdiagnosed scarlet fever in children who had other diseases, said study author Dr. Beth Tarini, a pediatrician and researcher at the University of Michigan. Her study appeared online Monday in Pediatrics. Its the latest study offering a modern diagnosis for a historical figure. Others subjected to revisionists microscope include Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin, composer Wolfgang Mozart and Abraham Lincoln. Tarini said as a girl she was a fan of the Little House books and wanted to research Mary Ingalls blindness ever since scarlet fever came up during a medical school discussion. I raised my hand and said, Scarlet fever can make you go blind, right? The instructor hesitated and responded, I dont think so. The disease that Mary Ingalls probably had is called meningoencephalitis (pronounced muh-NING-go-en-sef-ah-LY-tis). It can be caused by bacteria and treated with antibiotics, but Tarini said its likely she had the viral kind, which can be spread by mosquitoes and ticks.HEALTH& LIFE Decades ago, when a woman was diagnosed with breast cancer, her only chance of survival included a surgical procedure called a radical mastectomy. Over time, this procedure evolved to what is called a modified radical mastectomy, with equal results. Then research studies carefully explored the possibility of a lesser surgical procedure, simply removing the tumor and preserving the rest of the breast, called a lumpectomy. This lumpectomy, when Therapy in early breast cancer See BENNETT/ Page C4 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Winning the war We know we are fighting a war. This is a very important war and we must win. No, I am not talking about the war in Afghanistan or Iraq. I am talking about the war against cancer! Many times, people feel we are losing this war and there is no hope. This is not true. The overall death rate from cancer is declining in the United States. Data just released by the American Cancer Society (ACS) shows that overall cancer deaths have declined by 20 percent since their peak in 1991. The decreases are even greater in lung, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers. Coughing is a reflex characterized by a deep inspiration and buildup of pressure in our throat, followed by a forceful expulsion of that built-up air. The pressure is so great in the chest that the velocity of the air coming out can reach 500 miles per hour. The purpose of the cough is multifaceted. It is a protective reflex. It is a first-line body defense mechanism, and, it helps rid the body of unwanted secretions, foreign matter, viruses and bacteria that are entering the respiratory tract, and can prevent these bacteria and viruses from invading the lungs. Coughing is a wonderful thing. However, when it is persistent, it can really affect a patients quality of life. And, if it is persistent, and becomes impaired in some way, such as fluid in the windpipe or fluid in the lungs, it can become a health problem, and can cause infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia. U.S. Department of Health surveys suggest a cough is probably Chronic cough management Good morning!

Both are good for the heart in moderation.) February is Womens Heart Health Month, so its a wonderful time to review possible symptoms of a heart attack for men and women. Most dont realize womens signs of a heart attack are very different from those of men, who usually suffer pressing chest pain, sweating and nausea. Signs of a heart attack for a woman can be disguised as other illnesses such as a sore throat or the flu, which is an additional issue, because women rarely seek medical attention for themselves, prefer to wait it out, or diagnose and treat themselves with over the counter medication. Women are less likely than men to have the typical Hollywood heart attack, said Sharonne Hayes, M.D., cardiologist and Womens Heart Health Month See LUCAS/ Page C5 See GRILLO/ Page C5 Dr. Denis GrilloEAR, NOSE & THROAT Section CTUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE INSIDE Dr. Frank Vascimini /Page C5Dr. David B.

What can you tell me about it? A: In late December 2012, the FDA approved the anticlotting drug Eliquis (apixaban), an oral tablet used to reduce the risk of stroke and dangerous blood clots (systemic embolism) in patients with atrial fibrillation (A-Fib or AF) not caused by a heart valve problem. Atrial fibrillation, one of the most common types of abnormal heart rhythm, is an abnormal, irregular and rapid beating of the heart in which the hearts two upper chambers (atria) do not contract properly, allowing blood clots to form in them. These clots can break off and travel to the brain or other parts of the body. The safety and efficacy of Eliquis in treating patients with atrial fibrillation not caused by cardiac valve disease were studied in a clinical trial of more than 18,000 patients that compared Eliquis with the anti-clotting drug Coumadin (warfarin). In the trial, patients taking Eliquis had fewer strokes than those who took Coumadin (warfarin). Patients with prosthetic heart valves should not take Eliquis nor should patients with atrial fibrillation that is caused by a heart valve problem. These patients were not studied in clinical trials. As with other FDA-approved anti-clotting drugs, bleeding, including life-threatening and fatal bleeding, is the most serious risk with Eliquis. Eliquis is the third oral anticoagulant to be approved in the United States for this use, with the other two being Pradaxa (dabigatran) and Xarelto (rivaroxaban). Unlike Coumadin (warfarin), all three of these new drugs do not require regular coagulation laboratory monitoring and they also have a less likelihood of drug interactions. However, there is no agent that can reverse the anticoagulant effect of these three new drugs if bleeding should occur. Eliquis is dosed orally twice daily and will be dispensed with a patient Medication Guide that provides instructions on its use and drug safety information. Richard P.

followed by radiation therapy, led to equivalent cure and survival rates for women with breast cancer, and opened the door for a woman to keep her breast if she chose to. For the past 20 years, when I have seen a woman newly diagnosed with breast cancer, I have always discussed both surgical options and explained the cure and survival rates of the two are the same; it really is a personal choice. Now, I may have to rethink that philosophy. In a new study released only a few weeks ago, women with early stage breast cancer who undergo a lumpectomy followed by radiation therapy such as we deliver at RBOI, were found to have a better survival rate than women who underwent the more surgically aggressive mastectomy. The details of this study were published online in Cancer. Researchers from the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C. analyzed survival data from 112,154 women who had been diagnosed with stage I or stage II breast cancer in California between 1990 and 2004. They carefully compared those women who had received either a mastectomy or breastconserving therapy (BCT, also known as a lumpectomy) along with a course of radiation therapy. During this study, there were 31,416 deaths as of 2009, with breast cancer directly being the underlying cause in 39 percent of cases. During an average follow-up of 110.6 months, researchers found that women who received BCT followed by radiation therapy had significantly improved overall survival, meaning that fewer women in the BCT and radiation arm of the study had died from all causes combined, not just cancer. BCT followed by radiation therapy was also associated with significantly improved disease-specific survival yes, fewer women dying from breast cancer when compared to the mastectomy, with a greater benefit for women age 50 years or older with hormone receptor-positive cancer than among women aged younger than 50 with hormone receptornegative disease. However, in all subgroups of patients analyzed, older or younger than 50, hormone receptor positive or negative, this finding of a better survival rate among women who underwent BCT followed by radiation therapy was observed. So, this adds even more data to the success of the lumpectomy when followed by radiation therapy when looking at patients with early stage breast cancer. This study clearly shows BCT followed by radiation therapy was associated with improved disease-specific survival. Overall, this data should provide confidence and a sense of comfort to women that BCT followed by radiation therapy is an effective alternative to mastectomy for early stage disease regardless of age or hormone receptor status, and will allow more and more women to keep their breast, cure their cancer and actually improve their chances of survival when compared to a mastectomy.

Break and fracture are just different words used and accepted to describe and mean the same thing as they apply to bone injury. However, there are certainly different degrees of fracture or break. Fractures or anything that disrupts the covering of bone (the periosteum) cause pain. I tell patients that depending on the individual, a small insult to a small bone can hurt as much as a compound fracture. The level of pain varies from individual to individual. I never tell a patient with a small toe fracture it shouldnt hurt that much. Pain is pain, and tolerance varies from person to person. A stress fracture is a fracture in the bone where the bone is still in alignment and is almost completely functional, but it hurts and is still broken. I tell patients a stress fracture is usually an overuse injury whereby the stress of daily activity, exercise or a new activity outpaces the healing ability of a bone, and so the bone fatigues and eventually fails over a period of time rather then in one fell swoop. I tell patients the fatigue is similar to bending a piece of metal many times and it will eventually fail and break. A stress fracture is also similar to a crack in a windshield. You can see the crack so you know the windshield is broken. The cracked windshield still works in most cases, as it does its job. You can see through it and it keeps debris and weather from affecting you, but it is still broken as evidenced by the visible crack. A stress fracture is very similar in the foot, but it can be very painful. Stress fractures can be difficult to see on radiographs, however. Many times, I will tell a patient I believe they have a stress fracture, but none shows on radiographs. Their history and exam may be consistent with stress fracture, but the break may not be evident on radiographs. This often gives patients worry. A negative radiograph does not rule out a stress fracture as they often take some time before changes show up on radiographs. In my opinion, stress fractures should be treated when the suspicion is high, regardless of the lack of radiographic evidence. Repeating the radiographs in two weeks after initiating treatment is often enough time to see the fracture which reassures the patient. More time, bone scan or MRI can be considered to see the fracture if the fracture is still invisible on radiographs as long as the patient is being treated for fracture and is feeling more comfortable with that treatment. Stress fractures are painful and they can be difficult to observe on radiographs. Repeating radiographs over time with treatment or more definitive testing are acceptable alternatives for diagnosis if radiographic evidence is unobtainable. If you have pain in your foot or ankle that does not resolve, you should consult with your podiatrist or family physician.David B.

director of the Mayo Clinics Womens Heart Clinic in Rochester, Minn. This issue is very disconcerting because women dont call 9-1-1 for themselves. Bottom line, patients could very well die on the couch at home, which many women do because they were unaware they were having a heart attack. If youre older than 50, have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, are a smoker or have a family history of heart disease, you should pay attention to the following signs. Chest pain may feel like heavy pressure, but sometimes it comes as interspersing squeezes that come and go, or you may just have an uncomfortable feeling. If the chest pain lasts more than five minutes, call 9-1-1. Shortness of breath may occur before the chest pain and feels as though you cant catch your breath even while resting. Dizziness or lightheadedness make you feel as though you will pass out and cold sweats are when you are cold but youre sweating. Symptoms more likely in women are as follows: pain in the arm (especially left arm), back, neck, abdomen or shoulder blades; the pain is often described as an uncomfortable pressure, tightness or ache. If you can put a finger on it and say, It hurts right here, thats much less likely to be a heart attack, said Pamela Ouyang, a cardiologist with the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Jaw pain: The feeling starts in the chest and moves to the throat, as though youre being choked, then on to the jaw. But again, its not always obvious. Sometimes people go to the dentist, thinking its a toothache, when they actually had a heart attack. Nausea and vomiting: Women are more likely than men to have this symptom, and they may think they have the stomach flu rather than a heart attack. Overwhelming and unusual fatigue: Fatigue is often disregarded as a heart attack sign, so take heed if youre unusually exhausted. No one will experience the same exact symptoms of a heart attack, so its best to have an annual check-up and talk to your doctor about any discomfort. Be informed and take care of yourself. Cardiologist Gordon Tomaselli, and presidentelect of the American Heart Association, said, often after people have a heart attack, they realize in retrospect they had symptoms days or weeks earlier that they didnt recognize such as extreme fatigue or throat pain.

LUCASContinued from Page C1HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, FEBRUARY5, 2013 C5 Dentist bristles at quality of toothbrushes Ithought I would share something that happened to me over the past few weeks in this weeks column. It brings home the point I mentioned in a column years ago. A good friend of mine, the owner of AMH Aluminum in Homosassa, always says, Bottom line ... youll get what you pay for. Right after the holidays, I got hit by the flu. I was out of commission for about two weeks and for the record, I will forever take the flu shot from now on. After I recovered, I did as I ask patients to do and threw away my toothbrushes. I use a Sonicare brush at night and a standard brush in the morning. Even though my Sonicare has a UV sterilization light, I felt it was best to discard it. As many of us do, I made myself a note to bring home a brush from the office. Unfortunately, I kept forgetting. Even when I did remember to get it, I put it in my office and accidentally left it on the counter. Lucky for me, I have a box of brushes at home that I give to my sons friends when they end up sleeping over. The only problem with this is I bought a box of the less-expensive, generic brushes for this purpose, since I knew they were going to be used for one time use. Well, this is where the real story begins. When I used one of those brushes for the first time, I couldnt believe how hard the bristles were, how square the edges were, and how cheap the plastic they were made of was. Despite this, I cant believe it was at least a few days until I remembered to bring one of the real brushes home. When I finally brought one of the brushes home that we dispense to patients, I realized once again what friend Kevin meant when he said, Bottom line ... youll get what you pay for. A second scenario that rings this bell happened this week when my lab replaced a set of impression trays they misplaced over the holidays. I did a favor for a patient over the holidays and repaired a denture she broke. As a result, I sent the trays along with the impressions to the lab. Since it was a little different than usual (we normally just send the model and not the trays) the lab accidentally sent the trays to someone else and I never got them back. In doing the right thing, they sent me a set of trays from a gen eric company and not the same company my trays were man ufactured from. When I looked at the replacement trays, I immediately noticed the differences. After a phone call, they agreed to get me the same exact trays I sent to them. Once again, the principle of Bottom line ... youll get what you pay for. Over they years, I have tried to instill this idea in my kids because in so many instances this quote rings true. I have also tried to explain that, in some rare instances, it may not necessarily be the case. Ive explained to them that these cases are the toughest to figure out, so always be aware.

Dr. Frank VasciminiSOUND BITES The viral disease is fairly common today, particularly in summer months and can cause fever, headaches and sometimes seizures, said Dr. Buddy Creech, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University. Affected children typically require hospitalization but lasting effects are uncommon, Creech said. Still, blindness can occur if the disease affects the optic nerve, and its entirely possible that Mary Ingalls had the condition, he said. Historian William Anderson, author of Laura Ingalls Wilder biography, said various theories about Mary Ingalls blindness have been floating around for years. The new analysis provides credible evidence that it was caused by something other than scarlet fever, but it does nothing to discredit the books, Anderson said. From a literary standpoint, scarlet fever just seemed to be the most convenient way to describe Marys illness, he said. FEVERContinued from Page C1 In its annual statistical review of cancer incidence and mortality, ACS estimated more than 1 million Americans were saved from cancer deaths since 1991 the difference between the actual cancer mortality and a projection of continued increases in cancer deaths at the 197591 average. Of course, we have not won this war; this is just a beginning. This war requires longterm commitment. The ACS researchers also estimated the U.S. would see 1.6 million new cancer cases diagnosed in 2013 and almost 580,000 cancer deaths. This is the second time in a few weeks that a major report has highlighted falling cancer mortality rates in the United States. Earlier this month, the Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer reported that cancer deaths continue to fall. At the time, Dr. Seffrin noted the continuing drop in cancer mortality over the past 2 decades is reason to cheer, although he and others emphasized there is still much work to be done. That report highlighted the growing incidence of cancers related to human papillomavirus (HPV) and the potential for prevention with HPV vaccines. I have written about this vaccine and cancers due to HPV in past. Starting in 1990, lung cancer death rates in men dropped about 30 percent, from 91 per 100,000 to 62 in 2009. Deaths from prostate cancer per 100,000, which had also peaked in the early 1990s, also plummeted from 40 to 22. The largest decrease in cancer death rates for women has been for breast cancer, down 33 percent since 1990. Decreases in death rates were seen for most other cancer types. The major exception is liver cancer in men, for which mortality has been edging upward since 1980. Researchers also found that five-year survival rates have been trending upward, even for notoriously poor-prognosis cancers such as lung, pancreatic and esophageal malignancies. This is a lot of statistics, but the underlying theme is we are winning the war on cancer. With new research in genetics and other biochemical advances, I think the pace of this victory will be even faster in the future.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHIContinued from Page C1 one of the most common reasons for a doctor visit, and may account for up to 20 million office visits a year. Taking into account the average cost for an office visit, the tally comes up to about $1 billion a year spent in the United States alone treating coughs. This includes prescription and nonprescription treatments. The way a cough works is there are stretch receptors in the airway that become stimulated when irritated, and as a result, produce the cough reflex. There are even cough receptors located outside of the airway (which consists of the nose all the way down to the very bottom of the lung). These two extra sites are the ear canal and the stomach. As a matter of fact, there are many times when I am examining a patients ear, or cleaning the ear of wax, that we can elicit a cough-reflex, simply from doing that activity. About three conditions, including postnasal drip, asthma and reflux disease, account for about 86 percent of patients presenting with a cough to their doctor. If you have emphysema and/or take certain blood pressure medications in the category of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, the percentage jumps up to about the mid-90 percentile. There is also a long list of unusual causes for coughing that I will not bother to get into at this point in time, because they are so unusual and rare. Management of cough can be quite challenging and difficult. If you know, for example, that it is either postnasal drip, asthma or reflux disease, you can target the treatment towards the underlying problem. But sometimes effective cough therapy cannot be done, and sometimes you need to treat the symptoms of cough. Case in point might be a virus, and also, what we call post-viral coughing. When you have a virus, of course, everybody knows that you do not need antibiotics, because viruses are going to run their course and get better, in most instances, within a few days. The coughing tends to last a little bit longer, but it too will eventually clear up. In this situation, if the cough is preventing the patient from functioning normally, or resting properly, a cough medicine, either nonprescription or prescription, might be the treatment of choice, as opposed to targeting the underlying problem, as in the other causes of cough. This is a kind of nonspecific therapy, simply trying to suppress the coughing reflex so the patient can enjoy the better quality of life. Nonspecific cough therapy includes medications such as codeine or hydrocodone, which are in the opioid family, and require a prescription. Non-prescription cough medicine includes dextromethorphan, and it too can be an effective anticough medication if dosed properly. There is a third medication that is used in cough control: Guaifenesin. It is an expectorant and mucous-thinning agent that creates an effect of increasing mucous secretions, thus hydrating mucous membranes, and decreasing the irritation, which results in improved cough control. It seems to work well when cough receptor sensitivity is enhanced. Effective cough control must be targeted at the underlying cause of the cough to get the optimal result. As you can see, there are many aspects that must be considered and checked out thoroughly.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY5, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Victor Hugo wrote, He who every morning plans the transactions of the day, and follows that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through a labyrinth of the most busy life. A declarer who every first trick plans the transactions of the deal, and follows that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through a labyrinth of a most busy deal. That is true, but declarers must always be ready to change their plans if necessary. For example, look at todays club suit. If South has no other worries, what is his best play for four tricks? Then, South is in three no-trump. West leads the heart six: five, jack, king. How should declarer plan the transactions of the deal? South has seven top tricks: two spades, one heart (trick one), two diamonds and two clubs. He needs two not three more club tricks to get home. In isolation, the best plan is to cash dummys ace, then play low to dummys jack on the second round. But one of the main reasons bridge retains its popularity is that the right way to play a suit mathematically will not always be the correct approach in a given deal. Here, if East gets on play, he will lead a heart through Souths queen. That will not hurt if the hearts are 4-4, but if they are 5-3 or 6-2, the contract will fail. Declarer must work to keep East off play. South should lead a club to the king and cash the ace. Here, the queen drops and South gains an overtrick. But if the queen has not appeared (and the suit is 3-2), declarer plays a third round, hoping for the best.

My two daughters recently married, and the weddings were six weeks apart. My inlaws gave us a nice sum of money to help us with the weddings. We were very grateful and told them so. Right before the first wedding, my husband lost his job. In order to finish paying for the second wedding, we had to ask my father-in-law to lend us more money. He said, Sure. I want to give the girls what they want. We didnt tell our kids about my husbands job situation because we wanted them to soak in all the glory of being brides without any stress. Heres what happened: At Christmas, my father-in-law sent small amounts of money to me, my husband and our son with a note saying, We thought it would be OK to pass on the girls this year. The money is such a small amount that it didnt matter, but I cannot get over the fact that he took out our financial difficulties on them. The girls have no idea why their grandfather didnt give them holiday gifts, and so far, I havent told them. I am so mad, I could scream. I have to see my father-in-law at a family event this weekend and dont think I can be civil. This man showered his daughters children with cars for graduation that mine never got. I slept on this before writing and am angrier now than when I went to bed. At the moment, I dont want to ever see him again. Please advise. Washington Dear Washington: The fact that Dad is unfair in his gift giving is a legitimate issue, but that doesnt mean your children are entitled to receive gifts from him. You refer to the wedding money as loans, but Dad apparently considered them his wedding gifts to his granddaughters. If so, he was generous, and the girls should know. If they were actual loans and you are repaying the money, we agree that Dad should have treated your family equally at Christmas. Either way, it serves no purposes to stew in silence. Talk to your husband and then to Dad, together. Try to be nice. We doubt he intended to be unkind, and he probably doesnt realize that his behavior disturbed you. Dear Annie: My family recently planned a special, catered, expensive celebration. We gave much thought to our guest list. One couple told us they wanted their grown children invited. Then the grown children asked if they could bring their children. Some guests simply assumed their children were invited and brought them. Please tell them again, Annie: If the invitation is addressed to Mr. and Mrs., it is only for them. It does not include children, grandchildren or friends. What has happened to manners? I hope this will enlighten some folks. Roanoke, Va. Dear Roanoke: Some people believe all invitations are casual and open. They are not. Guest lists are limited by space as well as cost. It would be nice if your letter helps people understand this so they can be more gracious when responding. Dear Annie: I can relate to the letter from No, I Am Not Trying for a Boy, who had two girls and was still carrying baby weight. When I was carrying twins, a woman I knew only casually asked me whether I was having a baby elephant. After the girls were born, I overheard a friend saying, It looks like she still has one left in there. However, a true friend visited me in the hospital after my fifth girl and said, How many people can say they have five beautiful girls? Some people know what to say and some dont. That was 35 years ago, and all of our girls have been true blessings in our lives.
