C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerCounty commissioners feared it might happen, and then it did. But they feel prepared to face the closure of the Crystal River nuclear power plant (CR3) announced Tuesday. While this is a major issue and there is no doubt this will have severe negative impacts on our county, the future of Citrus County is bright, said Commission Chairman Joe Meek. We are working with ProgressDuke Energy because they are still a large employer in our county and they still have a substantial amount of investment in Citrus County, and we will continue to partner with them and work with them in the future. Meek said the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) for many months has talked with Duke Energy about its plan to build a natural gasfueled power plant in Florida. The BOCC has urged the gas plant to be built in Citrus County, Meek said.

Its a mighty tough day for Citrus County, but I know were going to turn our eyes now to the future to see what is possible. If youre being realistic, its a big hit. It impacts a lot of good jobs in a county that doesnt have that many good jobs. Its going to be a huge fiscal impact on the county insofar as taxes. When you already have bad things going on, its demoralizing. No nuke plant: Now what? P AT F AHERTY Staff writerFacing costly lengthy repairs, Duke Energy parent company of Progress Energy Florida has announced it will retire the Crystal River nuclear plant. Retirement raises issues of job loss, reduced tax revenue, customer electricity bills, storing spent nuclear fuel, replacement power, the fate of related facilities, environmental and regulatory issues. The nuclear unit began operation in 1977. The plant known as CR3 has been shut down since 2009, predating the ProgressDuke merger. It currently has approximately 600 full-time employees, 200 long-term contract workers and another 400 short-term contract workers associated with the plant. The companys four coal plants, which employ about 300, will continue to operate Crystal River merchants concerned about plant closures impact on business. With the decision to close the Crystal River nuclear power plant customers will not see any return on their forced $1.3 billion investment, according to state Rep. Mike Fasano. The CR3 plant has been a key economic engine in this community for 30 years and all of Citrus County will be affected in a very real way, U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent said. Citrus Countys state lawmakers, Sen. Charles Dean and Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, say they are optimistic the community will adjust to life without a nuclear power plant. Page A3 Property Appraiser Geoff Greene said its too soon to learn the tax impact of Dukes announcement. A national hold on licensing nuclear reactors is not expected to affect the proposed power plant in Levy County. Timeline: From the 1968 ground-breaking to Tuesdays announcement that the nuclear plant will not be reopened, it has impacted Citrus County.

M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Gaston Hall took a simplistic view of Citrus County losing a nuclear plant. Were going to be like surrounding counties that never had one, the Beverly Hills contractor and active member of the Citrus County Builders Association said. While Tuesdays announcement from Duke Energy that it is retiring the broken nuclear plant north of Crystal River was not a surprise, it still registered as a disappointment to Citrus County economic leaders. If youre being realistic its a big hit, Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston said. It impacts a lot of good jobs in a county that doesnt have that many good jobs. The fact that the plant has been off line since 2009 eased the sting.

City to auction property onlineINVERNESS Amid the talk of upgrades to the intersection of Seminole Avenue and U.S. 41, extending the lease agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for themunicipal parking lot on North Pine Avenueand welcoming SCORE to the Inverness Government Center,members of Inverness City Council voted at their regular meeting Tuesday todispose of surplus city property through an online auction rather than accepting bids for it. Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said many governments are using online auctions for this purpose. It puts the city in a better position to receive capital dollars, he said. It improves the return on property we no longer need. Lawmakers push for online tax TALLAHASSEE Theres a new twist this year in the annual push to make online retailers collect sales tax from Florida buyers. Supporters of the move are linking the prospect of new online taxes to other tax cuts for businesses and consumers in order to win over a skeptical Legislature. The first step came Tuesday when a Senate panel approved a sweeping tax measure aimed at getting online sellers to collect the states 6 percent sales tax from Florida residents. The world has changed and we need to recognize the change, said Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, one of the sponsors of the legislation. Floridians are supposed to pay taxes for online purchases but theres really no way to enforce the law. Under current laws, the state cant force out-of-state retailers such as Seattle-based Amazon.com to collect the tax unless it has a physical presence such as a warehouse or store. Detert has long favored forcing online retailers to collect the same tax now collected by brick and mortar stores, but the effort hasnt gotten very far in the Capitol. No trial delay in Martin caseSANFORD The murder trial for the Florida man charged in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin remains set for a June start after a judge Tuesday denied a defense request for a postponement. George Zimmermans lead attorney Mark OMara presented a motion to have the trial pushed back to November. He argued that prosecutors had been slow to turn over needed evidence. State attorney Bernie de la Rionda denied the accusation the prosecution had been dragging its feet and said it was rather a case of the defense using inefficient means to secure the information it wanted. With roughly four months left before the scheduled June 10 trial, Judge Debra Nelson said she felt the defense still has time to work out the outstanding issues. I dont see any of your issues to be insurmountable, Nelson said. The 29-year-old Zimmerman is claiming he acted in self-defense in shooting the 17-year-old last year after the two got into a fight and has pleaded not guilty to a second-degree murder charge. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS During World War II, 378,000 German soldiers were taken as prisoners of war by American troops and sent to the United States about 10,000 sent to Florida, including several hundred to nearby Leesburg. As part of the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum Coffee and Conversation Speakers Series, Dr. Robert Billinger will present a free program based his book, Humanity Beyond the Barbed Wire: Hitlers Soldiers in the Sunshine State, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in Inverness. Billinger is a professor of history at Wingate University in North Carolina, where he has taught since 1979. He has also written the book, Nazi POWs in the Tar Heel State. He traveled to Germany and Austria when he was younger and met up with some German POWs and was interested in their stories, said Kathy Turner Thompson, Citrus Countys historical resources officer. This program introduces the current museum exhibit, Humanity Beyond the Barbed Wire. The exhibit, on loan from the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg, will be on display until March 1. Since weve had the exhibit up, weve had visitors say they recall (the POWs) being in other parts of the country, not just the southern states, Thompson said. Of the ones who were here in Florida, 1,000 were at Camp Blanding, some at MacDill Air Force Base and some at Eglin in the Panhandle. The one place they liked the least was Clewiston because of all the snakes. She added that Billinger will tell stories about how the German prisoners were treated by the Americans, their first-hand stories of how they were treated by their own government and about their contribution to the U.S. labor force during their time here.

Page A3 WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Special to the Chronicle WASHINGTON, D.C. Following the announcement by Duke Energy that it will permanently close the Crystal River nuclear plant, U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent, RBrooksville, issued the following statement: For the six hundred families who are directly affected by Duke Energys decision, this is going to be a devastating blow. But the economic impact of the decision goes far beyond just the workers employed at the plant. The plant has been a key economic engine in this community for 30 years and all of Citrus County will be affected in a very real way. Community leaders all over the county have been pushing Progress and then Duke Energy to repair the plant for years now, including myself. I know all parties involved have worked as hard as possible to find a solution for Citrus County and the focus will now shift to making sure that Citrus will be home to future investments by the company. In particular, the natural gas-fueled plant being considered by Duke would be a tremendous asset for the state and for the community for years to come and I plan on working with both the leaders in this community and Duke Energy in the coming months to find a viable way forward. Its energy and its jobs and Central Florida desperately needs both. I know were all going to do everything we can. ... Its a mighty tough day for Citrus County, but I know were all going to turn our eyes now to the future to see what is possible. Special to the ChronicleState Rep. Mike Fasano has been a longtime critic of Duke/Progress Energys collection of $1.3 billion to fix a broken nuclear reactor at the Crystal River power plant. With Duke/Progress Energys decision to close the plant, customers will not see any return on their forced investment, Fasanos office said in a statement issued Tuesday. This utility has collected over $1.3 billion from its customers for the repair of its broken power plant that apparently will now never be fixed, Fasano said. The poor choices made by Duke/Progress Energys present and former executives leave customers with nothing to show for the huge bills they have been forced to pay. The Crystal River plant has been plagued by problems. An attempt to fix a cracked reactor (containment building) by the company, rather than turning to outside experts, only exacerbated the problem, rendering the plant all but inoperable. Additionally, permitting issues and related difficulties held up the construction of a new plant elsewhere in Florida. All told, customers bank accounts are emptier, and their wallets are lighter, while the utility will pocket huge sums of money that doubtfully will ever be returned to the people who paid it, Fasano said. The lack of transparency during this ordeal, the promises not kept and the false hopes all are dashed with todays announcement. Mike Fasano Rich Nugent Nugent pledges dedication; Fasano blasts decision M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Citrus Countys state lawmakers say they are optimistic the community will adjust to life without a nuclear power plant. State Sen. Charlie Dean said the county commission should absorb the loss of taxes brought about with the closing of the Progress Energy Florida power plant. And state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith said the county should be prepared to help about 600 nuclear plant employees who face potential job loss. If anybody is going to be laid off or transitioned to another career field, we want to make sure were ahead of that, Smith, RInverness, said. Dean, R-Inverness, said he was not surprised by the Duke Energy announcement that it was retiring the nuclear power plant rather than repairing it. They got a good return on their investment, Dean said, referring to the fact that the power plant came on line in 1977. Theres a lifetime and a lifeline on nuclear plants. Theyre not going to last forever. Prior to his 2010 election to the state House, Smith worked for a company that had a security contract for the nuclear plant. Smith said Tuesday he doesnt expect much change in the number of security officers because the plant must still be protected. I dont see any quick, dramatic layoff of security personnel, he said. If theres any kind of nuclear entity there, it would need security. Both Dean and Smith urged county leaders to absorb the tax hit without resorting to higher property taxes. Theyve got to cut back, live within their means, Dean said. Smith said he hopes the nuclear shutdown is offset by a wider economic base. Its going to be a huge fiscal impact on the county insofar as taxes, he said. When you already have bad things going on its demoralizing. He added: We need to diversify the economy and provide incentives to grow businesses. We should make sure we put out to various businesses in Florida that Citrus County is the place to come.

SIDIBEANDN ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writersCRYSTAL RIVER Hilda Fialko, the owner of the selfdescribed shop where eclectic funk meets simple elegance to eyewear in the citys Heritage Village, is grappling with Duke Energys announcement. Fialkos shop, Mez Mer Eyes, off North Citrus Avenue, is a supplier of safety glasses to the plant. Duke announced Tuesday it is retiring the nuclear portion of the power complex. The nuclear plant employs 600 people but has not been operational since 2009. It will be a big hit for us. Actually, we just got a check from them for 22 glasses we did for them, Fialko said. On South Citrus Avenue, at The Wine Shop and Wine Bar, Dan Sullivan was surprised and dismayed by the decision. Its going to be devastating to the economy, he said. Sullivan, who works parttime at the store, said Duke Energy workers have been a constant for the business. That is really bad news, Sullivan added. At the Shell station, across U.S. 19 North from Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, clerk Greg Dristiliaris said business has been ebbing since the 2009 stoppage of nuclear operations. It used to be we would have long lines in here and we even created this sandwich shop. The workers would stop on their way to work or during lunch breaks, Dristiliaris said. Though we stopped the sandwich shop, we still rely on them a lot for business and so many others in the area rely on them. We kind of expected it, but this is not good. Oysters Restaurant has been in business in Crystal River since 1954, owned by William Bunch since 1995. Bunch had just heard the news about Duke Energys plans to close the Crystal River area nuclear plant Tuesday morning and said he had no idea how the closing would affect his business. At one time he ran the Progress Energy cafeteria and had catered events for the company, including one very big event in 2011. Its hard to tell what percentage of my customers comes from there, Bunch said. Regardless, Im going to stay here. We have a lot of local people who support us. Mike Kazemfar, owner of Quiznos in the Shoppes of Crystal River plaza on State Road 44, said the Duke decision affects every business in the area. Their employees are our customers, he said. We have no way of knowing who works out there, but sometimes they come in wearing their badges. Theyre good customers of ours, and Id hate to lose them. Also in the same plaza, Liberty Tax has been in Crystal River at that location for seven years. Owner Mike Gearhart said, Any decisions for businesses that move out of the area or dont employ people here or employ fewer people directly impacts our business because there are fewer people who need to file tax returns. Laura Lou Tolle Fitzpatrick, lifelong county resident and longtime business owner, said all of the downtown Crystal River businesses will be negatively impacted. As the owner of Heritage House and event coordinator for Heritage Village, Fitzpatrick said she knows employees of the nuclear plant as well as all of Progress Energy account for a good percentage of business in the area, especially at restaurants. The plant brings a lot of people, she said. Were a shopping destination and we definitely depend on their employees supporting us. Its going to affect us all. MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Laura Lou Tolle Fitzpatrick, owner of Heritage House in Crystal River, is pictured recently with her grandchild. The plant bri ngs a lot of people, Fitzpatrick told the Chronicle when asked about the effect Duke Energys decision will have on area businesses. That is really bad news. ...

A: Citrus County officials say its too soon to think about that. However, Progress which is in court with the property appraiser over its 2012 assessment has put the county on notice that retiring the plant could decrease the companys 2013 tax payment by $6 million to $9 million, meaning an immediate shortfall of some amount to the county.Q: What happened to the nuclear plant? A: Workers cut a hole in the reactor containment wall in 2009 to install a new steam generator. When the hole was closed, it created a crack in the containment wall. While the crack was repaired, other cracks materialized. Q: How does Duke intend to make up that loss of electrical power? A: The company plans to build a naturalgas power plant. It says it hasnt chosen a site, though Citrus County is being considered. Q: What happens to the spent nuclear fuel at the Crystal River site? A: Basically, it stays right where it is. The company is planning to retire the plant by effectively placing the facility in storage. It wont actually dismantle the plant for another 40 to 60 years.

Associated PressNEW YORK Too much drama, boredom and scads of irrelevant information are just some of the reasons Facebook users give for taking a break from the worlds biggest social networking site for weeks at a time, according to a new study. A report from the Pew Research Centers Internet and American Life Project found that some 61 percent of Facebook users had taken a hiatus of at least several weeks for myriad reasons, whether they were weary from an onslaught of gossip, or for the more pious, the arrival of Lent. Yet the use of Facebook, whether constant or not, is pervasive in America. Of the American adults who use the Internet, 67 percent are on Facebook, Pew found. That compares with 20 percent who use LinkedIn and 16 percent who are on Twitter. But users do come and go, some temporarily, and some for good. Seven percent of Internet users said they used Facebook at one point but no longer do. By its own count, Facebook Inc. has 1.06 billion users worldwide who check in at least once a month. This includes millions of duplicate and fake accounts. More than 150 million users are in the U.S. The largest slice of users, 20 percent, said that they were simply too busy with their own lives to follow the constant stream of status updates, George Takei quotes and baby photos. Privacy and security concerns, which have received plenty of media coverage, were low on the list. Only 4 percent of people gave these reasons, combined with concerns about ads and spam, as their Facebook vacation motivation. Lee Rainie, director of the Internet and American Life Project, said privacy is more of a big policy question that people do not concern themselves with day-byday. Rather, people are contemplating how they spend their time and allocate their attention. People are making interesting calibrations and recalibrations about how they spend their time and about the worth of constantly staying connected to friends, family and others online, Rainie said. And while people do take Facebook breaks, Internet users are logging in more frequently than ever, the study found. Among other interesting tidbits: 59 percent of Facebook users said the site is about as important to them as it was a year ago. 12 percent said Facebook is more important to them than it was a year ago and 28 percent said it has become less important. 8 percent said they took a break from Facebook because they were spending too much time using it. 69 percent said they plan to spend the same amount of time on Facebook in the coming year. Twenty-seven percent plan to spend less time on the site and 3 percent, more time. The Pew study of 1,006 U.S. adults was done in December. It has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points. Pew: More than 60 percent of Facebook users take a break Busy lives, others drama top reasons why Associated PressLONDON The structure is simple, the guitar riffs basic, the lyrics at best inane, but the Troggs Wild Thing remains a garage rock classic more than 45 years after its release made The Troggs and lead singer Reg Presley international stars. Presley, whose raunchy, suggestive voice powers this paean to teenage lust, died Monday after a year-long struggle with lung cancer that forced him and the band into reluctant retirement, his agent Keith Altham announced on Facebook late Monday night. He was 71. My dear old pal Reg Presley of The Troggs died today, he said, calling Presley one very real person in a sometimes very unreal world. Wild Thing singer Presley dies at 71

uncertainty thats obviously been on our minds and everybodys minds, said John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council. Now we have a clear picture. Kevin Cunningham, a past president of the Realtors Association of Citrus County, said the economic impact began long before Dukes announcement. The damage has already been done, he said. Chris Ensing, a contractor who also rents 24 apartment units in Crystal River, said he started noticing nearly two years ago the impact of Progress Energy Floridas decision to let the nuclear plant sit idle. Once they stalled on that repair, it slowed down, he said. Ensing and other landlords and hotel owners thrived when Progress would close the plant for annual repairs and scheduled outages. Progress brought hundreds of workers into the county and they would stay several months. Now Ensing expects to see the opposite: Progress workers leaving Citrus County in search of other opportunities. Theyre used to a pretty high standard of pay, he said. Were going to see a lot of homes for sale and property values decrease as people are leaving. Siefert, however, found room for optimism. He noted that Duke kept the door open to building a naturalgas power plant in Citrus County. He also said that Dukes economic development team is working with Citrus County to identify property to attract industry. I still think its a major employer here, he said. They understand the negative impact to Citrus County and theyre trying to offset that by helping us. They have a record of helping economic development in the areas they serve. Cunningham said he believes real estate business along U.S. 19 will pick up now that the company has finalized its decision. Crystal River cant get any worse than it is today, he said. All I see is it improving. I see it every day. Im starting to see people make up their minds and not put it off any longer. Theres a built-up demand sitting out there. Houston said the Duke decision should be kept in perspective. There was a Crystal River before the nuclear plant, he said, and there will be a Crystal River after the nuclear plant.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. Brad Thorpe has conducted regular budget workshops toward setting the next budget. The workshops will continue at the BOCCs next meeting on Tuesday, when Thorpe will present proposals about such alternative revenueraising options as Municipal Services Taxing Units (MSTUs) to levy millage on existing services and Municipal Services Benefits Units (MSBUs) for funding other services and constructing and maintaining capital facilities. Meek said the BOCC had been preparing for Dukes decision through the workshops and by making a top priority of diversifying the countys economy. Now, in addition to previous budget cuts and future alternative revenue sources, property tax increases through raising the millage rate appear to be a stronger possibility. We knew the bubble was going to burst sometime, said Commissioner John Kenney. I knew from the beginning that CR3 was going down the tubes. Its going to cause us to get creative. We are starting now to look at the MSBUs and MSTUs. We may have to look into a millage increase. Commissioner Scott Adams, however, said he wont favor a millage increase. How can we raise taxes if the whole county is out of work? Adams asked in response to the question of a millage rate increase. Adams said he expected CR3 to be shut down. Its a community problem, Adams said. Weve got to deal with it like a community. The answer is not an increase in taxes right now because nobody can afford it. Theyre laying off 600 people at Duke and were increasing their taxes? Adams said the county is in trouble. Until government starts wising up about how they are managing and spending their money, were not going to fix it, Adams said. Rather than conduct the budget workshops, Adams said the BOCC should start cutting its current budget now. We know that this is already here, Adams said. This isnt something were preparing for. We should have done this three years ago when we knew the nuke plant was shutting down. When we spent our reserves, knowing this was coming to us, I can assure you Duke Energy will say we were aware of it. For us to blame them for our problems when we knew it was coming is wrong. Commissioner Dennis Damato said he believed Progress Enegy-Dukes refusal to pay its full tax bill signaled closure of CR3. We will deal with that, Damato said. Ive got some good ideas and that will start to unfold at the next (BOCC) meeting. Now that we know it is definite, it gives us something to work toward. Damato said county staff is up to the task of making a workable budget in the coming year. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said the BOCC had anticipated CR3s closure for a long time. Back in July, the board voted to start looking at alternative revenue analysis for the county as a way to stabilize our budget and other avenues to balance our budget with other options, Bays said. I think it works in our favor to lessen our dependence on Duke. Sometimes an opportunity comes out of a crisis. Thorpe said county staff would put together a plan to address the issues casued by CR3s closure. I assured the board that we will get through this and we will come up with a way to support central government services, Thorpe said. Were probably going to do a combination of everything. The plan would include cutting expenses where possible and using revenue options. Thorpe said three new revenue options will be presented at Tuesdays BOCC meeting to reduce the countys reliance on ad valorem taxes. For the future, Thorpe said he felt Duke was looking at building a gaspowered plant at the Crystal River site. We are looking at getting through the interim spell until the complex is rebuilt, Thorpe said. This is a period we have to bridge while they are reassessing the complex out there. If Duke were to rebuild, it would provide new jobs and a new tax base, Thorpe said. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Associated PressNEW ORLEANS Concerned the Superdome might not be able to handle the energy needed for its first Super Bowl since Hurricane Katrina, officials spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on upgrades to decayed utility lines, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The improvements apparently werent enough, however, to prevent an embarrassing and puzzling 34-minute power outage during the third quarter of the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Two days later, officials still had not pinpointed the cause of the outage. The Superdomes management company, SMG, and the utility that supplies the stadium, Entergy New Orleans, announced Tuesday they would hire outside experts to investigate. We wanted to leave no stone unturned, Entergy spokesman Chanel Lagarde told the AP He said the two companies had not been able to reach a conclusion on the cause and wanted a third-party analysis. We thought it was important to get another party looking at this to make sure we were looking at everything that we need to examine, Lagarde said. SMG Vice President Doug Thornton told a news conference at City Hall later Tuesday that the hiring of a third party does not signify a disagreement between SMG and Entergy. Its important for us to have total transparency and we have agreed among ourselves that we will exchange records, Thornton said. We were metering the power. They were doing the same on their side. We need to figure out what the root cause of this is and fix it. Documents obtained Monday through a records request by The Associated Press show Superdome officials worried months ago about losing power during the NFL championship. Tests on the electrical feeders that connect incoming power from utility lines to the stadium showed decay and a chance of failure, state officials warned in a memo dated Oct. 15. The documents, obtained by the AP through a records request, also show Entergy expressed concern about the reliability of the service before the Super Bowl. Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Flunked, retained, held back. Whatever you call it, increasing numbers of states are not promoting students who are struggling to read at the end of third grade. Thirty-two states have passed legislation designed to improve third-grade literacy, according to the Education Commission of the States. Retention is part of the policies in 14 states, with some offering more leeway than others. Passing children up the grade ladder when we know they cant read is irresponsible and cruel, said Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback in announcing in his recent State of the State address that thirdgraders should demonstrate an ability to read before being promoted. He also proposed a $12 million program for improving third-graders reading skills. Backers say retention policies put pressure on teachers and parents to make sure children succeed. But opponents say students fare better if theyre promoted and offered extra help. They say holding students back does nothing to address the underlying problems that caused them to struggle and is the single biggest school drop-out predictor. Students whove been retained have a two-fold increased risk of dropping out compared to students with similar academic struggles who werent retained, said Arthur Reynolds, a professor at the University of Minnesotas Human Capital Research Collaborative, citing studies of students in Chicago and Baltimore. Retention policies were tried out in large city districts, but in recent years have been scaled back or dropped in places like Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Ending so-called social promotion was one of Jeb Bushs education reforms when he was governor of Florida, and his nonprofit Foundation for Excellence in Education began touting the reform package after it started in 2008.A8 W EDNESDAY, F EBRUARY6, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE N ATION 000DXSP www.createmorespace.com 1251 Commercial Way, Spring Hill 1-352-684-1400 1-877-590-4948 Closet Organizers World Famous Murphy Beds Wall Beds Home Office Solutions Entertainment Units Garage Systems Largest Selection in Florida.

US sues S&P over mortgage ratingsWASHINGTON The U.S. government says Standard & Poors knowingly inflated its ratings on risky mortgage investments that helped trigger the 2008 financial crisis. The credit rating agency gave high marks to mortgagebacked securities because it wanted to earn more business from the banks that issued the investments, the Justice Department alleges in civil charges filed in federal court in Los Angeles. The government is demanding S&P pay at least $5 billion in penalties. Gun background checks decline WASHINGTON The number of federal background checks for firearms sales declined in the U.S. last month, as retailers continue to run out of guns to sell during a buying spree driven by Washingtons new focus on gun control. Background checks decreased 10 percent nationally between December and January, with large declines in the Southern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia as well as Texas, according to an Associated Press analysis of new FBI data published Tuesday. Firearms sales surged around the country after the December shooting spree in Newtown, Conn. Report: Family leave law working WASHINGTON The Labor Department says 16 percent of eligible workers took time off last year under the Family and Medical Leave Act to recover from an illness, care for a new child or tend to a sick relative. The data comes from a government survey issued on the laws 20th anniversary. Labor officials say it shows the law is helping millions of workers cope with family hardships with little disruption to employers. The law allows eligible workers up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave without fear of losing their jobs. Since it took effect, workers have taken leave more than 100 million times. Last year, about 57 percent went on leave for an illness. Another 22 percent took leave for child care and 19 percent cared for a sick relative. EPA sees decline in carbon pollution WASHINGTON The Environmental Protection Agency says heat-trapping gases from U.S. power plants fell 4.6 percent in 2011 from the previous year as plants burned less coal, the biggest source of greenhouse gas pollution. The report, released Tuesday, said power plants remain the largest stationary source of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that trigger global warming. Power plants were responsible for 2,221 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2011. The reduction from 2010 reflects a relative decline in the use of coal, the dominant U.S. energy source, and an increase in natural gas and renewable sources that produce lower amounts of greenhouse gases. Power plants produced roughly one-third of total U.S. emissions, followed by petroleum and natural gas systems, with refineries the third-largest pollution source. Disneys earnings beat forecastsBURBANK, Calif. Disney won over more fans on Wall Street with its latest quarterly performance, despite a slight drop in its earnings. The downturn announced Tuesday was less pronounced than the modest dip analysts anticipated as Walt Disney Co. digested higher programming costs at its ESPN television network and dealt with a less appealing line-up of theatrical and home video releases in its movie studio. The company offset some of those problems with an advertising upturn at its ABC network and higher spending at its theme parks. It was good enough to set the stage for Disneys stock to hit a new high in Wednesdays trading. The shares gained 96 cents, or nearly 2 percent, cents to $55.25 in Tuesdays extended trading after the release of the financial results. If the stock reaches that level Wednesday, it would top its previous peak of $54.87, which the shares touched just last week. Disney earned $1.38 billion, or 77 cents per share, during its fiscal first quarter, a threemonth stretch that ended Dec. 29. That compared with net income of $1.46 billion, or 80 cents per share, in the same period in 2011.Dell to go private in $24.4B deal SAN FRANCISCO Slumping personal computer maker Dell is bowing out of the stock market in a $24.4 billion buyout that represents the largest deal of its kind since the Great Recession dried up the financing for such risky maneuvers. The complex agreement announced Tuesday will allow Dell Inc.s management, including eponymous founder Michael Dell, to attempt a company turnaround away from the glare and financial pressures of Wall Street. Dell stockholders will be paid $13.65 per share to leave the company on its own. Thats 25 percent more than the stocks price of $10.88 before word of the buyout talks trickled out three weeks ago. But its a steep markdown from the shares price of $24 six years ago when Michael Dell returned for a second goround as CEO. US home prices rose last yearWASHINGTON U.S. home prices jumped by the most in 6 1/2 years in December, spurred by a low supply of available homes and rising demand. Home prices rose 8.3 percent in December compared with a year earlier, according to data Tuesday from CoreLogic, a real estate data provider. That is the biggest annual gain since May 2006. Prices rose last year in 46 of 50 states. Home prices also rose 0.4 percent in December from the previous month. Thats a healthy increase given that sales usually slow over the winter months. Feds: 18 charged in credit card fraudNEWARK, N.J. Eighteen people were charged in what may be one of the nations largest credit card fraud rings, a sprawling international scam that duped credit-rating agencies and used thousands of fake identities to steal at least $200 million, federal authorities said Tuesday. The elaborate scheme involved improving fake cardholders credit scores, allowing the scammers to borrow more money they never repaid, investigators said. Paul Fishman, the U.S. attorney in Newark, described an intricate Jersey City-based con that began in 2007, operated in at least 28 states and wired money to Pakistan, India, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Romania, China and Japan.

US 19 352-795-7223 Stocks rebound Dow up 99 points Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market bounced back Tuesday following a surge in U.S. home prices and signs of recovery in Europes economy. Strong earnings reports also helped power the gains. The Dow Jones industrial average ended the day 99.22 points higher at 13,979.30, erasing a large part of its loss from Monday. The index traded above 14,000 during the day before falling back in the last hour. The Standard & Poors 500 gained 15.59 points to 1,511.29. The Nasdaq composite was up 40.41 points to 3,171.58. The rise follows two days of whiplash. On Monday, the Dow dropped 129 points, its worst sell-off of the year so far, as fears about Europes finances resurfaced. That drop came after the index gained 149 points Friday, closing above 14,000 for the first time since 2007. After strong gains for stocks this year, investors are wondering whether they should sell now, or wait and see if the rally still has legs, said Brad Reynolds, chief investment officer at LJPR, Inc. The market is extremely skittish right now, thats why were seeing such big moves, said Reynolds. Tuesdays advance was driven by new data showing that U.S. home prices rose in December at the fastest pace in more than six years. CoreLogic, a real estate data provider, reported that home prices rose 8.3 percent. In Europe, a measure of manufacturing and service businesses rose to a 10-month high January. Estee Lauder rose $3.66, or 6 percent, to $64.71 after reporting earnings that beat analysts expectations. Profits surged 13 percent at the beauty products company as sales in the U.S. and emerging markets rose. Computer Sciences Corp., an information technology services company, was the biggest gainer in the S&P 500. CSC rose $3.84, or 9.2 percent, to $45.75 after the company said it was raising its earnings outlook for the year because its cost-cutting efforts were yielding better results than it had expected.

O PINION Page A10 WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 Confusing numbers on health care In Tuesdays edition of theChronicle there was an AP article on the new health care market. Some of the dollar figures seem somewhat misleading. The article references Gov. Rick Scott being wary of the increased cost a Medicare expansion could bring to Florida taxpayers and has been accused of playing politics with numbers after he referenced figures showing costs could be as high as $26 billion over a decade. The state health agency later revised that figure to $3 billion. In the next column, it is stated that the current Medicaid program costs more than $21 billion a year with the federal government picking up roughly half the tab. This figure covers about 3 million people. Maybe Im mistaken, but it seems that that would leave the state with a $10.5 billion bill for the current 3 million people. Thats about $3.5 billion per million people. With the new expanded Medicaid coverage adding 900,000 people, my calculator tells me that would be an addition of close to $3.1 billion per year, or about $30 billion for the next decade. Please explain to me where the state health agency came up with their revised figure of a $3 billion cost for the decade. Butch Adams Homosassa Editors note: Therein lies the debate. Scott estimates the expansion would cost $26 billion over the next 10 years, while the states health agency says it will cost $3 billion. The truth is both figures are guesses. The state health care agency is calculating that a lot of the existing costs are contained in the Medicaid programs overhead and system infrastructure and the actual yearly assistance meted out to those served is nowhere near the estimates Scott is presenting. Only time will tell. G ov. Rick Scotts announcement of a record $74.2 billion state budget plan had the unmistakeable air of a re-election campaign rally last week. Thats not his fault. Governors always make a big splash with their budgets, both to make a public statement of their priorities and to generate a little momentum going into the legislative session. Even a highly popular governor cant wait until an election year to start running, and when polls show your personal popularity ranking somewhere between sinkholes and citrus canker, everything you do gets examined for its political implications. Had Scott proposed another year of belt-tightening, his critics would have accused him of solidifying his conservative base rather than reaching out to voters who might be persuadable. By proposing $4 billion in new spending, Scott is suspected of trying to broaden that base by appealing to Florida Families First, the slogan printed on his lectern at the budget news conference. The man who announced his first state budget at a tea party rally in Eustis two years ago then signed the pared-down spending plan a few months later at another big gathering of applauding supporters and school children at The Villages stayed in the Florida Capitol to roll out his new budget blueprint. This time, Scott invited about three dozen educators, ranging from university presidents to classroom teachers to applaud appreciatively. He explained the proposed budget increases two ways. First, he said, the state needs it teachers deserve a $2,500 raise because student achievement has risen. Schools deserve $1.2 billion in added funding if for no reason other than that the workforce Florida needs tomorrow is in the public schools today. Businesses should get a sales-tax exemption on manufacturing equipment, and the corporate income-tax exemption should rise from $50,000 to $75,000 because money employers save will mean more employees who will send it ripping through the economy. Besides, the catchall answer to every question is: Its the right thing to do. Second, Scott spins these budget decisions not as reversals but results. Its not that hes changed his past belief that theres always more to be cut from state spending; its that painful reductions made in 2011 and 2012 coupled with a generally improving economy have produced the first revenue surplus projection in several years. Come to think of it, the Scott story goes, we have that surplus and the improving economy partly because of the austerity budgets he laid out in his first two sessions. So he contends that those arent spending increases, those are targeted investments that will pay dividends for fiscal years to come. Democrats grumbled that Scott was trying to buy his way back into the good graces of working families, even school teachers, by sprinkling the states new revenues among target audiences. But there are plenty of plums in there for conservatives, too. Like 3,647 fewer state job positions, a 3 percent reduction in the government workforce. Like no general pay raises, except for teachers, oh, and $1,200 one-time bonuses for state employees and renewed emphasis on performance-based incentive pay. Like no money for expansion of Medicaid under the new national health care system because Scott wants a lot more information about its ultimate costs. Like making top executives pay the same for health insurance as regular state workers. Like no new taxes or college tuition increases. Then there are the expenditures that you cant really call conservative or liberal but go down well with the voters. Like $75 million for the Florida Forever conservation land-buying program and $60 million for Everglades restoration. Like $75 million for school safety. These things fit well on bumper stickers or into 30second advertisements, which live only in the present. When touting a $1.25 billion increase for schools, theres no need to mention that Scotts first budget cut $1.3 billion from education or that the $398 million more for universities in the next budget makes up for $300 million cut from this fiscal year. Apart from the budget, Scott has cajoled state colleges into offering $10,000 degrees. He abandoned his 2010 campaign promise of an Arizona-style immigration crackdown but continues to press for drug-testing of welfare recipients and state employees, ideas that go down very well with voters who are not federal judges. Scotts 2010 campaign slogan was Lets Get To Work, which is now the name of his reelection finance fund. Florida Families First, the theme of his new budget recommendations, looks like a marketable brand name for 2014.

Signs of the plants uncertain future had been multiplying through the past year, but the official decision still had the impact of a doctors quiet message to a family that nothing more can be done for their loved one. While halfexpected, the finality of the statement was still something of a shock. Although the four coalfired units will continue operating, the nuclear plant accounts for about half of the workers employed at the Crystal River energy complex. Some workers will still be required to monitor and protect the fuel stored at the nuclear plant, but the majority of those at CR3 will lose jobs once considered among the best in the county. The human impact is devastating, as plant workers who once had a secure job now face the prospect of searching for employment in a slow economy, and many plant employees will have to sell homes as they take employment outside the county and the state. Aside from the human impact, the decision will have a significant financial impact on the county. In addition to the effect of lost paychecks on local businesses and the loss of tax revenue from the plant, our schools will lose students, our nonprofits will lose volunteers, many local businesses will lose employees as plant worker spouses pull up stakes and leave, and there will be more homes for sale in an already soft market. For many years, nuclear plant workers have been involved in the community, contributing time and money to activities as varied as youth sports and cleanup days to food pantries and leadership in United Way, the Chamber of Commerce and nonprofits across the county. But almost four years ago, well-intentioned decisions put into motion a series of events that have played out like a Greek tragedy, with an inexorable tragic conclusion that became more and more obvious as the months passed. The beginning of the end for the plant was the decision to cut out part of the 3 1/2foot-thick concrete containment wall to remove large pieces of plant equipment being replaced as part of a major plant upgrade. This was done as an alternative to removing the equipment through a hatchway already built into the building. The decision seemed reasonable, since it reduced cost and worker radiation exposure. Then the company elected to reduce the project cost by managing the concrete removal rather than contracting it to a company experienced in the process. While it is impossible to know if the concrete containment wall would have cracked during the process regardless of who managed it, with Progress managing the project, the company completely owned the results. Since then, the power company has spent millions on engineering and analysis, but the plant has sat idle. When Duke bought Progress Energy last summer, it cited problems at Crystal River as a reason for booting former Progress CEO Bill Johnson. Since then, Duke has demurred when asked about whether it would repair or retire the plant, but the signals have been ever stronger that it wanted to simply close the plant and get past the problem. As a result, when the decision was announced, it was no real surprise, but the finality had the feel of a death in the family. Closing the plant is a devastating blow to the county a blow delivered by members of the board of an out-of-state company who neither know the employees who will lose jobs nor feel the impact their decision will have on the county. We have advocated and hoped for a different decision. It is now clear this will not happen. As painful as this is for plant workers and local businesses, as a county, it is now time for us to look to the future without the nuclear plant and to deal with this new reality. THE ISSUE: Duke Energy to close nuclear plant. OUR OPINION: A devastating blow to the county, but we must move forward.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Eager to buy time and avoid economic pain, President Barack Obama urged Congress on Tuesday to pass targeted short-term spending cuts and higher taxes as a way to put off sweeping, automatic cuts that would slice deeply into military and domestic programs starting March 1. Obamas appeal came as Congress budget office projected a yearly federal deficit under $1 trillion for the first time in his presidency and as Republicans applied political pressure on the president to submit balanced budgets, pushing fiscal issues back to the forefront in Washington after weeks devoted to immigration and guns. A short-term deficittrimming measure would once again delay the broad and onerous spending cuts that are unpopular with both political parties, underscoring the governments difficulty adopting long-term budget policies. Obama conceded the problem, even though he has previously scoffed at temporary budget reprieves. Lets keep on chipping away at this problem together, as Democrats and Republicans, to give our workers and our businesses the support that they need to thrive in the weeks and months ahead, Obama said in a short statement in the White House briefing room. Illustrating the challenge for the government, the Congressional Budget Office said the government will run a $845 billion deficit this year. Thats down from last years $1.1 trillion but still high enough to require the government to borrow 24 cents of every dollar it spends. The report predicted the deficit would decline to $430 billion by 2015, the lowest since President George W. Bushs last year in office. However, as more baby boomers retire and claim Medicare and Social Security, deficits would move higher and again reach near $1 trillion in the latter portion of the 10-year window. Egypts top cleric worries about IranCAIRO Egypts most prominent Muslim cleric, the sheik of al-Azhar, has warned Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad against interfering in Arab Gulf countries or trying to spread Shiite influence. Ahmadinejad, on a landmark visit to Egypt on Tuesday, received an uneasy reception from Ahmed elTayeb at al-Azhar, the Sunni Muslim worlds foremost Islamic institution. El-Tayeb particularly warned mainly Shiite Iran against interference in Bahrain and said Egypt rejects any spread of Shiism in the Sunni world. Islam split into the two sects after the death of the Prophet Muham med in the 7th century.French may leave Mali in MarchTIMBUKTU, Mali French troops may start pulling out of their antiextremist operation in Mali as early as next month, handing over to a still-developing African force, the French foreign minister said. The potential pending withdrawal, floated by Laurent Fabius in a newspaper interview published Tuesday night, came as forces from France and Chad secured a key bastion in northern Mali, the city of Kidal. France has some 4,000 troops in Mali as of Tuesday, a French military official said. Horseburger firm blames Polish meat DUBLIN The Irish meat company at the center of Europes horseburger scandal Tuesday blamed the contamination of its hamburger patties on the purchase last year of 170 tons of meat imported from Poland. As Ireland struggled to contain the damage to its reputation as Europes top beef exporter, the ABP Food Group shed new light on how burgers made partly of horse ended up on British and Irish supermarket shelves. Irelands biggest beef company said it purchased the Polish meat last year marked as beef from an Irish meat trader, McAdam Food Products.

The issue has traditionally divided labor and business. Labor groups have looked askance on bringing in numerous low-wage workers, while thats an outcome businesses have favored. The Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO have been tasked by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York with reaching a deal, within weeks, that Schumer and a bipartisan Senate group on immigration could incorporate into legislation now taking shape, officials say. Both sides appear hopeful, although Schumer and others say the issue scuttled the last attempt at a comprehensive overhaul of immigration law in 2007. The guest worker issue has emerged as a split between the Senate negotiating group and President Barack Obama, who omitted any such program from his immigration proposals, drawing criticism from Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a key negotiator on the Republican side. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama wants to ensure any such program protects workers and is actually based on data-driven workforce demands, rather than political whim. Labor and business leaders met with Obama at the White House on Tuesday in separate sessions to discuss immigration reform and how it fits into the broader economic picture. Officials on both sides of the guest worker negotiations are hopeful of a positive result, partly because all involved agree on the necessity of addressing whats called future flow the influx of migrants to the U.S. thats sure to come whether or not Congress passes an immigration bill. If Congress does act to provide a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country, its just as important to deal with future immigration, advocates say. Otherwise, some time from now the country will once again find itself home to many more illegal immigrants.

at the energy complex. Two of those plants, however, are scheduled to be phased out in the near future. Fixing CR3 could have cost $1.49 billion to $3.43 billion with a timeframe of 31 to 96 months. The project was described as technically feasible, but with significant risks. Plus, it would have had to have been relicensed in 2016 not a certainty, according to Jim Rogers, Duke chairman, president and CEO. We believe the decision to retire the nuclear plant is in the best overall interests of our customers, investors, the state of Florida and our company, Rogers said in a news release. This has been an arduous process of modeling, engineering, analysis and evaluation over many months. The decision was very difficult, but it is the right choice. The Crystal River nuclear plant has been an important part of our generation fleet for three decades, said Alex Glenn, state president of Progress Energy Florida. We are very sensitive to the impact on our employees at the plant and on the Citrus County economy. We are working to place as many employees affected by todays announcement in other positions within the company, and we are committed to working with Citrus County to lessen the effects as much as possible. Progress spokeswoman Suzanne Grant said the company is committed to doing all it can to assist employees. We will work diligently to help redeploy employees to other positions within the company or offer transition benefits, such as severance packages, and career placement services, she said. Grant said the company is working to fill a number of nuclear plant vacancies in the Carolinas. Ultimately, some employees could choose to retire or leave the company; others will be placed in new positions within the utility or the company, she said. In addition to job loss, retiring the plant will affect county tax revenues. In a recent letter to Citrus County political leaders, Glenn stated, If the company were to retire CR3, however, this could result in a further reduction to the taxable value of our assets in Citrus County, and a possible reduction of tax payments by an additional $6 million to $9 million. Electric bills impact uncertainProgress customers will be directly affected, though not immediately with the total future impact on monthly electric bills uncertain. Duke and Nuclear Electric Insurance Limited (NEIL) have resolved the companys claims through mediation. NEIL will pay an additional $530 million along with $305 million it has already paid. Progress customers will eventually benefit from $835 million in insurance proceeds. This will be the largest claim payout in the history of NEIL. The monies we receive will go directly to customers to reduce their electric bills, Rogers said. However, according to a Feb. 5 filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Duke listed the recovery of $1.645 billion it has invested in the plant as one of the financial implications of its decision to retire it. Putting it perspective, Grant explained, There is no impact on todays customers bills. Customers will receive the $835 million in total insurance proceeds, as well as approximately $388 million through 2016 from the 2012 settlement, she said. These benefits will help lower customers future bills. She said the settlement agreement (in the event of a retirement decision) also states the companys investment in the nuclear plant will not go into customer base rates until 2017. Ultimately the allocation of all costs for customers and the company/shareholders will be determined in the future by Florida regulators. CR3 has been part of the monthly nuclear cost recovery charges. An average household pays about $4.73 a month. It covers costs associated with the proposed Levy County nuclear plant and the CR3 uprate project. Recovery costs associated with CR3 are not connected with the plants repairs, instead they relate to costs incurred planning for increased capacity through major plant modifications. That charge will continue. Alternatives include gas plant Duke announced it is reviewing alternatives to replace the power produced by CR3, including the potential construction of a new, natural gas-fueled plant. The company is evaluating a number of potential sites for new plant capacity that may be needed in the future to meet Florida customer needs, including sites in Citrus County. We have not made a final decision on new plants or potential sites, Grant said. We are also continuing to keep nuclear generation viable for the future by pursuing the license for the Levy County nuclear project. Citrus County Commission Chairman Joe Meek hoped Citrus will be the site for the natural gas plant. While we are disappointed in the decision to retire the Crystal River nuclear plant, we are committed to continuing to work with Progress Energy and Duke Energy as we go forward, particularly as they explore their options for finding alternatives and building a gas plant, Meek said. We want that plant to be built in Citrus County. We have discussed that and talked about that with them now for numerous months. We will continue to work with them and advocate for that. We have met with them numerous times and we have been in discussions. Decommissioning well into futureAs for the future of the nuclear plant site, we are working to develop a comprehensive decommissioning plan, Grant said. The plan will determine our resource needs, as well as the scope, schedule and other elements of the decommissioning. We intend to use the SAFSTOR option for decommissioning. Generally, this involves placing the facility into a safe storage configuration, requiring limited staffing to monitor plant conditions, until the eventual dismantling and decontamination activities occur, usually in 40 to 60 years. Additional specifics about the decommissioning plan are being developed and will be provided in the future. Utilities with nuclear plants are required to put aside money for eventual decommissioning. Duke currently has approximately $621 million in this fund, which it expects to be sufficient to cover its costs. However, in 2011 Progress Energy estimated it would cost approximately $1.078 billion to decommission the plant in a process that could take up to 60 years. Duke Energy is also pursuing a licensed independent spentfuel storage installation (ISFSI) for that site. This would facilitate dry-cask storage of spent nuclear fuel once removed from the cooling pools. We have to first build the facility, and the NRC has to witness successful dry runs of moving the fuel before we would apply for what is called a general license, Progress Energy Florida spokesman Sterling Ivy said. The containment repair project team is located in temporary buildings where ISFSI would be built. The facility is being planned to store spent nuclear fuel from CR3 only. We do not have plans to move fuel from our other nuclear plants, Duke spokeswoman Rita Sipe said. These plants all have used fuel storage facilities. The company has not announced specifics on the future of site itself or the nuclear plant training facility near the airport in Crystal River. We are working on detailed plans for the nuclear plant and related facilities and will share that information as it becomes available, Grant said.

Greene said a team of experts conducting an appraisal of the companys energy complex will have its report by mid-May, about the same time Progress Energy Florida submits its tax return. Progress, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, has already placed local officials on notice that any decision to retire the nuclear plant would reduce its 2013 property tax payment $6 million to $9 million. The company is suing Greene over his 2012 assessment of the energy complex, particularly pollution-control equipment installed for the coal plants. The lawsuit also disputes Greenes $620 million taxable value on the nuclear portion of the complex. Last year, Greene told the Chronicle Editorial Board that retiring the nuclear plant would cost the county $12 million or $13 million in revenue. Greene said Tuesday he based those estimates on the companys 2012 value. Those numbers are likely to change this year, he said. Until we know the additions made, theres no way to come up with a value, he said. Its not that simple to pull a number out of a hat.

National hold on nuke licenses will not affect Levy plant P AT F AHERTY Staff writerA national hold on licensing nuclear reactors is not expected to affect the proposed power plant in Levy County. With no permanent place to store spent fuel, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has suspended decisions on issuing new or renewal licenses for nuclear reactors. The policy affects the Levy County nuclear plant, the Crystal River nuclear plant and 21 other licensing actions, according to the NRC. The action follows a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals against the practice of storing spent fuel at reactor sites for extended periods of time the practice of waste confidence in lieu of having a permanent nuclear waste facility. As a result NRC is developing a new waste confidence rule and environmental impact provisions. On Jan. 17, the agency announced no final licensing decisions for reactors, including license renewal, will be made by the commission until the waste confidence rule is completed. NRCs waste confidence environmental impact statement and rule are expected by September 2014. Levy will have to consider whatever environmental processes are adopted, NRC public affairs officer Roger Hannah said. He was not sure what it would mean for the Crystal River nuclear plant, which had been pursuing a general license to permit dry storage of its nuclear waste, but is now scheduled to be retired. While new or renewal licenses will not be issued until the spent fuel issue is resolved, the NRC is continuing to work on license review and applications. Progress Energy Florida spokesperson Sterling Ivy said this is not expected to alter the overall project timeline for commercial operation of Levy Unit 1 by 2024. The second unit is scheduled to follow 18 months later. The company anticipates a total estimated project cost of between $19 billion and $24 billion. We are moving forward with licensing work in parallel as the NRC completes the Waste Confidence and Seismic Analysis, Ivy said. As a matter of fact, the NRC has already said they plan to hold Levys mandatory hearing, which demonstrates the project moving forward before Waste Confidence is completed. Until we know the additions made, theres no way to come up with a value. Geoff Greene Citrus County property appraiser. The company is evaluating a number of potential sites for new plant capacity that may be needed in the future to meet Florida customer needs, including sites in Citrus County.

The No. 3-seeded Leopards built an insurmountable 23point halftime lead on the back of six 3-pointers and strong rebounding en route to advancing with a 77-40 victory against the sixth-seeded Pirates. For Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman, it was the culmination of a frustrating homestretch, which saw the Pirates (11-13 overall) drop three straight after boasting an 11-10 record following a road win against The Villages in late January. These last 10 days put a damper on what had really been a turnaround for us this season, said Feldman, whose team lost 70-65 to the Leopards in January after falling by 16 to them in December. We lost our ability to clamp down on teams, no matter who the opponent. Hernando shot the ball awfully good, but our defense was almost nonexistent. We didnt contest a lot of those shots like we should. Once they delivered a couple of punches to us early, we had no answer, and thats not the way you want to remember this past season. Pirates junior Ty Reynolds had 23 points. Sophomore Sam Franklin scored 13 while blocking four shots and collecting 10 boards and two steals for Crystal River. Knowing his team isnt built to compete in 70to 80-point contests, Feldman grew concerned when Hernando had a 22-14 lead late in the first quarter. He lamented the lack of production behind Reynolds and Franklin. Leopards end Pirates postseason with win Hernando hustles past Crystal River for 77-40 victory in district tourney C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO A ninepoint run to start the third quarter and a seven-point run to begin the fourth were more than enough to boost St. John Lutheran past host Seven Rivers Christian, 60-46, in the District 2A-4 boys basketball semifinal Tuesday. St. John pulled away from a 21-18 halftime lead to score 39 points in the final two quarters, outscoring Seven Rivers by 11. The difference? No single player was carrying the load for the Saints; four of them scored in double figures, while a fifth netted eight. Seven Rivers, in contrast, had two in double figures, with Adam Gage leading all scorers with 25 points. It goes back to the first half, St. John coach Tony Fisher said. Psychologically, when youre leading at the half, if you can maintain that momentum it will carry you through. I thought we played a little looser in the second half. It came down to who would execute best. And execute the Saints did. Although they had seven third-quarter turnovers and eight more in the fourth, they managed to force 13 secondhalf turnovers by the Warriors. What Seven Rivers (1111 overall) could not do as effectively was shoot the ball. St. John (15-9 overall record) converted on 6 of 8 shots from the floor in the third quarter and hit 4 of 7 in the fourth. Combined with 11-of-13 shooting from the free-throw line in the fourth, St. John was very difficult to catch. We just didnt execute offensively, Seven Rivers coach Jim Ervin said. We didnt do a very good job on the boards and we didnt take care of the ball. Warriors whipped St. John beats Seven Rivers 60-46 at tournament Unranked Arkansas deflates Florida Associated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Arkansas finally gave second-year coach Mike Anderson the signature win he had been looking for. BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as the Razorbacks opened quickly and never let up in a shocking 8069 victory over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night. The win improves the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps a 10-game winning streak for the Gators who had ascended to the No. 2 spot in The AP Top 25 one day earlier. Arkansas opened the game 15 of 20 from the field. Michael Qualls and Marshawn Powell added 11 points each and all 11 players scored for the Razorbacks in their first win over a top 10 team since early in 2008-09. Mike Rosario led Florida (18-3, 8-1) with 15 points, while Scottie Wilbekin had 14. After trailing by as many as 23 points in the first half, the Gators cut the lead to 43-26 at halftime. The Razorbacks didnt give Florida a chance to come up for air to open the second half, forcing turnovers on two straight possessions to open the second half and extending the lead 49-26 following a jumper by Qualls. Florida had one final run in it responding with an 11-2 stretch to cut the deficit to 51-37 after an inside basket by Michael Frazier. The Gators did close the lead to 11 points, but by then it was too late against an Arkansas team in desperate need of a signature win, one that hasnt reached the NCAA tournament since 2008. The Razorbacks were then coached by current Florida assistant coach John Pelphrey, who entered Bud Walton Arena to handshakes and hugs Tuesday night before walking off the court with a stunning loss in his second return to his former home.

From staff reports D OUG F ERGUSON AP golf writer PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. These should be happy times for golf. Tiger Woods won for the 75th time on the PGA Tour and set a record with his eighth win at Torrey Pines. It was a command performance, the kind that made people think more about where he is going than where he went. The next week, Phil Mickelson had a chance at 59 until his 25foot birdie putt on the last hole took a cruel spin around the cup. He thought he had golfs magic number and instead shot his tax rate in California. Lefty still sailed to a wire-to-wire win in the Phoenix Open. It was the first time since 2009 that golfs two biggest stars won in consecutive weeks. The trouble is, any discussion about golf these days goes beyond birdies and bogeys. Now it includes bifurcation. And the day after the buzz was about Tiger, the focus shifted to deer antlers. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem might have seen this coming when he said two weeks ago while he views the professional game as being the strongest it has ever been, I dont like to see distractions. There are too many of them right now. Vijay Singh was leaving the practice range at Pebble Beach on Tuesday when one of the few reporters who has a working relationship with the Fijian called out to him. Singh looked at him, said nothing, and kept walking. So that would be no comment? the reporter said. Yes, Singh replied. Sports Illustrated reported Singh paid $9,000 to Sports With Alternative to Steroids in November for products including deer-antler spray, which is said to have an insulin-like growth factor, which is on the PGA Tours list of prohibited substances. Singh told the magazine he uses the spray every couple of hours ... every day. Singh might have been better off keeping quiet, as he often does. But he issued a statement confirming he used the spray, but was unaware it had a banned substance. I am absolutely shocked that deer-antler spray may contain a banned substance and am angry that I have put myself in this position, he said. I have been in contact with the PGA Tour and am cooperating fully with their review of this matter. The tour will not comment except to say it is looking into the matter, though it is backed into a corner. Singhs admission alone constitutes an anti-doping violation. The first violation is up to a oneyear suspension. The tour has a minimum requirement to publish the name of the player, his antidoping violation and the sanction. As long as Singh is in the field, that means the tour has not suspended him. He is playing this week. For now. Thats not the kind of distraction Finchem was talking about, but its a big one. The only other player suspended under the antidoping policy was Doug Barron, the consummate journeyman. Singh is a three-time major champion who was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2006. He hasnt won in more than four years, and he had made it to the Tour Championship only once since 2008. The distraction to which Finchem referred was about the proposed rule that would ban anchored strokes the kind used with long putters and belly putters. It already was a mess because three of the last five major champions used a belly putter, and because the rule would not go into effect until 2016. But its the debate over this proposed rule that has given some corners reason to bring up bifurcation two sets of rules. PGA of America president Ted Bishop polled his 27,000 members on anchoring. More than 15 percent of them responded, and he said 63 percent opposed the ban. The USGA and Royal & Ancient write the Rules of Golf. Bishop noted the PGA Tour didnt exist when the USGA was founded in 1894, and the tour has a powerful impact on the game. He suggested golf was at a point where two sets of rules should be considered as a potential solution. The CEO of TaylorMade suggested the USGA was obsolete and the PGA of America, in conjunction with the PGA Tour, should set the rules. Maybe he forgot the PGA Tour broke away from the PGA of America in 1968 because of the disconnect between tour pros and club pros. Finchem said he thought there were certain parts of the rules that could be bifurcated and it wouldnt hurt anything, though maybe not in the case of anchoring. Where will it all lead? Finchem said the tours objective was to keep the rules together. Bishop said in an ideal world, golf would be played under one set of rules. Debate is healthy as long as its about golfs best interest and not financial interests. Dont get the idea golf isnt growing because the game is too hard. Thats one of its greatest appeals. The challenge was constant. And it never stopped being a challenge, Arnold Palmer once said. That was one of the things that really excited me as a kid. USGA president Glen Nager got to the heart of the bifurcation bluster during his speech at the USGAs annual meeting over the weekend in San Diego. There certainly are important issues for the golf industry to address, including economic issues, but revenue concerns arising during a broad economic slowdown should not lead us fundamentally to alter our approach to writing the rules and defining the game, Nager said. It is our obligation as a governing body to keep our eye on the long-term good of the game and to hold firm to what we know to be true about the essence of golf. In the meantime, Mickelson goes for his fifth win at Pebble Beach this week. All the stars get together for the first time in two weeks at the Match Play Championship. Buzz in golf not all good Game surrounded by distractions of Singh, bifurcation Associated Press Vijay Singh looks on before teeing off on the 10th hole of the north course at the Torrey Pines Golf Course during the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open on Jan. 24 in San Diego. I am absolutely shocked that deer-antler spray may contain a banned substance and am angry that I have put myself in this position. Vijay Singh

Despite the overall improvement, the 300 game remains an elusive goal for most bowlers. Citrus County has more than just a few families where a husband and wife, father and son or other combinations of family members have reached that goal. How about a family with five members across three generations who have thrown seven 300 games, two 11-in-a-row games and two 800 series? It must be in the genes! It all started when dad Aaron Fugere rolled the first 800 series at Parkview Lanes in January 1995 followed by a 300 game two months later. Next in the family was Grandma Judy Timmons with her 298 11in-a-row game in February 1998 and 300 game in September 1999 at Manatee Lanes. Judy has been a league secretary in Ohio and Florida for more than 20 years. In March 2011, Sean Fugere, Judys grandson, bowled the first of his three perfect games. Three months later, Judys daughter and Seans mother, Dorine Fugere bowled her own 300 game. Sean bowled his second perfect score in July 2012. Four months later, Seans sister Stephanie Flory, threw her 300 game with brother Sean rolling a triplicate 278 for a 834 series in December 2012 and another 300 game in January 2013. Bowling seems to come naturally to this family and the tradition starts early. Sean, for instance, began his bowling career at 5 years old when he had to use both hands to bowl. Though not unusual at that age, Sean continues to throw the ball with two hands and is one of a very small percentage of bowlers with the two-handed style made famous by the Australian professional bowler Jason Belmonte. It must be working for him, because he carries a 229 average. His mother, Dorine, started early in youth bowling leagues. Besides her 300 game, Dorine recalls her most memorable bowling moment at the age of 13; she bowled with Hall of Fame bowler Earl Anthony in a ProAm tournament in Toledo, Ohio. All in all, it is a pretty remarkable achievement for this Citrus County family.

Lecantos No. 1 doubles team of Rishi Gurnani and Dhrav Patel won the first set 6-2, but was unable to keep Hurricanes Kyle Everett and Grey Prospiech from coming back in the second set. Everett and Prospiech won the second match 6-3 before bringing it home for a 6-4 win in the third set. Prior to the finish of that match, Citrus No. 2 doubles team of Michael Hetland and Brady Hayes defeated Lecantos Lloyd Justo and Dale Eastmond in two sets 6-3, 6-3. They were (nearly) shut out in singles play, Citrus head coach James Martone said of his team. We were down a set and to come back and battle like that in the first match of the year is good for the seniors to know that they can come back from that. The No. 1-seed match between Lecantos Gurnani and Citrus Everett went to Gurnani, who took it 6-0, 6-1. Lecantos Justo won the No. 2-seed match in three sets 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 over Prospiech. Citrus came back in the No. 3-seed match as Hetland forced the action to three sets, winning 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 over Eastmond. The Panthers took the No. 4 match when Patel defeated Hayes in two sets 6-4, 6-4, while the Canes fired back in the No. 5 match as Joe Kelly decisively beat Michael King 6-0, 6-1. Both county teams were facing each other for the first time this season in each teams opener. It was a good opening match, but when we play Lecanto it is always a close match and its been that way for years, Martone said. I had no reason to expect any different. Lecanto head coach Jack Hall echoed those comments Great first match, he said. Tennis is alive and well (in Citrus County) and both teams are really solid top to bottom, and thats really good to see. part, we lack experience and will begin the learning curve on the fly as our first match is February 11 vs. Oak Hall. The graduation of last seasons No. 1 seed and All-Chronicle team member Brandon Papp leaves room at the top for some key returnees to fill the spot he left behind. But with last years No. 2 seed, senior Travis Swanson, unable to play because of a shoulder injury sustained during the soccer season, Reyes is leaning heavily on his new recruits and the depth of his returning players to start the season on the right foot. (With these) underclassmen, the future of Pirate tennis is bright, the coach said. Over the past two seasons, we have been a .500 (average) team. But in each of those seasons, we have made it to regionals and that is the goal again this year. Sophomore Matt Allen and junior Ryan Johnson return after spending much of past season seeded Nos. 3 and 5, respectively. Junior Devin Reed comes in ranked as the alternate No. 1 seed for the Pirates as Swanson recovers. Key newcomers for Crystal River include: Ben Epstein, freshman; Matt White, sophomore; Eddie Castelli, freshman; Allen Ivory, freshman; Dylan Palmer, freshman; and Justin Allen, sophomore. Citrus Hurricanes Citrus head coach James Martone takes over the program from last years head coach David Assumpcao. The Hurricanes return last years No. 1 seed, senior Kyle Everett. Everett will maintain his spot and looks to become a threat in doubles with Grey Prospiech. Citrus will need some veterans to step up and replace last years No. 4 seed Tyler McIntosh. Everett and McIntosh were members of the AllChronicle team last year, and McIntosh finished his District 3A post season as runner-up in the No. 4 seed competition the best individual place of any local boys tennis player. My top four is solid, Martone said. We have a lot of leadership with (our) four seniors. We had some key losses this year with the graduation of Guy Harris and McIntosh not being able to return. Two key returnees include seniors Prospiech and Michael Hetland, with newcomer senior Brady Hayes and Joe Kelly rounding out the top five contested scoring spots. Lecanto Panthers The Lecanto Panthers see the majority of last years core returning. Last years No. 1 seed junior Rishi Gurnani returns aimings to duplicate the results that earned him a Chronicle Player of the Year distinction last season. However, the team must deal with losing key player Zach Alford to graduation. We only lost Zach, so weve retained most of our lineup, which should keep us solid one through four, Lecanto head coach Jack Hall said. Gainesville will be the favorite to win districts this year. I believe theyve only lost their No. 5, which should make them the (odds-on) favorite. Key returning players for the Panthers include senior Lloyd Justo and Dale Eastmond in the No. 2 and 3 seed positions. Both players move up from the No. 4 and 5 seeds they held last season. Panther newcomers Dhrav Patel and Michael King round out the top five scoring spots for Lecanto at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively. We were playing against an extremely talented team, and obviously the size difference was hard to overcome. The Saints had three players measuring 6-foot-4 or better, while Seven Rivers had one. That size advantage didnt just help on the boards, it allowed St. John to penetrate the Warriors defense and get good shots inside. St. Johns 9-0 run to start the second half featured four players scoring. Five of the points in the 7-0 rally to begin the fourth were netted by Harrison Bucy, who finished with 13. Ill bet our starting five were all in or around double figures in scoring, Fisher said. Our goal is to share the basketball, and if we get to 55 (points) well win. Joining Bucy in double-figure scoring were Glen Owen with 15, eight of those coming in the third quarter. Jordan Bates knocked down 14 points and Cole Whitlock scored 10, with Jordan Smith just missing with eight. Gage once again had a phenomenal game for the Warriors, collecting nine rebounds and five assists to go with his 25 points. Corey Weiand totaled 14 points. Next up for St. John is the winner of Tuesdays Meadowbrook Academy/First Academy of Leesburg game. The 2A-4 final will be at 7 p.m. Friday.

B4 W EDNESDAY, F EBRUARY6, 2013 STEPHEN E. LASKO /For the Chronicle Seven Rivers junior Adam Gage comes in hard for two points with St. Johns players Jordan Bates, Cole Whitlock and Jordan Smith defending Tuesday in the district tournament at Seven Rivers Christian School. If you looked at our stat sheet, the only guys in any of the columns at all were basically Ty (Reynolds) and Sam (Franklin), Feldman said. We challenged the others at halftime to step up and be a player, even if you make mistakes. Hernando (18-7) enjoyed the return of sophomore guard Mark Wilson, who led the game with 24 points behind four nothingbut-net 3s in his first complete game since missing six weeks with a broken collarbone. Wilson is probably our best complete player, and he helps hold everything together, said head coach Mark Latsko, whose Leopards had their first winning season since 2004. We kind of limped through January without him, but we become a true three seed with him. Were a team thats not afraid to shoot 3s, and when theyre falling were pretty good. I thought we did a good job of (containing) Sam Franklin, and our post presence did a good job rebounding, Latsko continued. When we played Crystal River in January, Sam killed us on the boards. Senior guard Jeffrey Velasquez added 15 points for Hernando, and Leopards junior Dylan Bailey grabbed 10 rebounds. Hernando faces No. 2 seed and tournament host Eustis at 7:30 p.m. today. PIRATESContinued from Page B1 L ARRYB UGG CorrespondentINVERNESS It was 1-1 in the bottom of the second inning when the lights went out. Twenty-one minutes later, they came back on. After the break, Ocala Forest lit up the softball scoreboard Tuesday night at Vicki Overman Field. Forest ruined the Citrus Hurricanes opening game with eight runs in the fifth inning and five more in the sixth inning. They won 14-3 in six innings on a mercy rule. Forest freshman pitcher Morgan White struck out eight Canes batters, allowing just four hits to take the victory. Citrus starting pitcher Kelly Abramowich took the loss. She had two of Citruss hits.

Amy Abramowich reached when White hit her with a pitch. Abramowich scored on a throwing error. DeSomma reached on a fielders choice and scored on Kelly Abramowichs single. But Forest exploded for eight runs on six hits and three errors in the fifth inning. They added five runs on three hits and two errors in the sixth. This wasnt the debut Citrus hoped for. I think they just figured me out and started getting hits, Kelly Abramowich said. She (White) had a really good screwball. She was pretty good. We didnt start out the way we wanted to. We play Wildwood Thursday and we hope to bring it. The Citrus coach knew his team had to avoid defensive miscues. We played a solid four and a half innings, and all of a sudden, we made a mistake, Citrus coach Larry Bishop said. We made a bad throw from the outfield. The floodgates opened up. It seemed like once we made a mistake, others were making mistakes. Those things bother you. Its early in the season and we can minimize those. Thats a good-hitting ballclub. Being a freshman, she (White) threw the ball super hard and had a nasty screwball. We have problems with the screwball, Bishop said. We are aggressive. We had some mistakes in the field that we have to work on. Citrus will travel to Wildwood High School for a 6 p.m. first pitch Thursday.

Pesci settles dispute over mobster biopic LOS ANGELES Joe Pesci has settled a lawsuit filed against a company planning a biopic on the Gotti crime family. The Oscarwinner sued Fiore Films in July 2011 claiming the filmmakers reneged on a deal for a $3 million role in the film and were offering him a lesser part in the project and a lower payday.

While struggling professionally, he was also reshaping his life away from the spotlight where he and wife Faith Hill juggle two superstar careers while raising three daughters. He quit drinking and started putting things right. (Im) growing up a little bit, I guess, is what Im trying to say more than anything overall, McGraw said.

Ill take 16.

Meeting with reporters, two-time winner De Niro was asked how big a deal the Oscars are to him now. Notoriously terse, he lived up to his reputation with a five-word answer. Its still a big deal, he said. Birthday Exciting times could be in the making during coming months, involving new places, faces, sights and sounds.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Goodbye candy bars and sugary cookies. Hello baked chips and diet sodas. The government for the first time is proposing broad new standards to make sure all foods sold in schools are more healthful, a change that would ban the sale of almost all candy, high-calorie sports drinks and greasy foods on campus. Under new rules the Department of Agriculture proposed Friday, school vending machines would start selling water, lower-calorie sports drinks, diet sodas and baked chips instead. Lunchrooms selling fatty a la carte items like mozzarella sticks and nachos would have to switch to healthier pizzas, low-fat hamburgers, fruit cups and yogurt. The rules, required under a child nutrition law passed by Congress in 2010, are part of the governments effort to combat childhood obesity. While many schools already have made improvements in their lunch menus and vending machine choices, others still are selling high-fat, high-calorie foods.

Throughout the nation, students are bringing attention to the value CTE adds to the economic stability of a community. For many students, the programs have provided a new lease on life. Students who were dismissed from jobs because of the economic downturn and have enrolled in CTE programs, now have the skills to embark on new careers. Members of Congress are hearing these stories and others as students from across the country visit Capitol Hill. The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) has provided some interesting information regarding the value of CTE programs. For example, for many high school students, CTE has brought relevance to their academic studies. One only need look at the success of STEM academies to see how students are using high-level math skills to design and build robots. In a recent report to Congress on the value of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, it was stated more than 12 million students participated in secondary and postsecondary CTE programs during the 2010-11 school year. Research from the Southern Regional Education Board shows at schools where highly rigorous academic subjects were integrated with CTE programs, students have significantly higher achievement in reading, mathematics and science than students at schools with less integrated programs. CTE students are more likely to develop problem solving skills, timemanagement skills, critical-thinking skills and communication skills to a higher degree than non CTE students.

Fowler knew she wanted to work with animals. So she began volunteering at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and did so until four years ago, when she was hired as a park ranger. I knew I wanted to work with animals, but I had no idea how to get there, Fowler said. That wont be the case for CRMS eighth-graders, thanks to the work of consumer science teacher Sherri Albon. About 300 eighth-graders visited with representatives of 20 companies or organizations Friday during the schools third Career Day. Albon said Career Day is part of a comprehensive plan to place students in line for career opportunities even before they reach high school. Were trying to prepare them for 21st century global competition, Albon said. They dont know whats available out there. Careers participating Friday included the Navy, wildlife rescue, attorney, teacher, crime-scene detective and photojournalist. Students had in hand their top three career choices. Groups spent 10 or 15 minutes at each career table and then moved to the next choice. At the Navy table, Lt. Todd Dunn and Seaman Hunter Morrison told students the Navy offers a host of career opportunities. Every job you can think of, he said. Dunn said students look for the glamorous careers. A lot of guys say they want to be a SEAL, he said. I tell them that takes mental challenges as well as physical challenges. Jobs No. 1 at CRMS Career Day MIKE WRIGHT /Chronicle Retired Navy Lt.

Most people give directions with streets and numbers. Conrad Farnsworth gives GPS coordinates and satellite imaging maps. Hell greet you in his driveway in his white lab coat, offering you a pair of safety goggles. At least thats how he greeted me. On Jan. 17, Conrad wore an Angry Nerds T-shirt under his lab coat. Think Angry Birds, but with pocket protectors. We walked together to his dads metal shed, big enough to hold the truck his dad is restoring and Conrads machine, the one Ive driven to his house to see. Its the old next to the new a 1972 Chevy next to a nuclear fusion reactor. The reactor is a maze of steel, cable, tubes and boxes. Cords wrap around several shelves and stretch to a nearby table. When he plugs it in, it gurgles and groans. This is my Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Fusion Reactor. It works on the property of inertial electrostatic confine ment, Conrad said. Conrad, 18, talks fast faster when hes explaining this machine, a project he started at 16. Its plasma heart rises to a temperature of 600 million degrees. It glows bright blue and purple. It strips gas out of its outer electron shell. Dont worry if it makes no sense. Many science fair judges dont get it either.Science nerdConrad is the first person in Wyoming, and one of about 60 in the world, to achieve nuclear fusion. Only about 15 of those are in high school. Conrad is a selfprofessed nerd. Hes not shy, doesnt stutter and isnt prone to tripping over his feet. He doesnt act like hes smarter than you, though he likely is. He just really likes science. At 3, he took apart his moms sofa recliner. At 17, he started his own iPhone repair business. Hes not afraid to make mistakes, blow something up or start something on fire. I dont think Ive taught another student who individually made science seem as cool as Conrad has, said Sharla Dowding, his Newcastle High School science teacher. Friends tease him about his exploits. They expect the fire alarm to go off one day and discover Conrad is the source of the explosion. Classmates in his high school English class nominated him as one of the most interesting stories in Newcastle. Fires, explosionsWhen he was 3, Conrad found a screwdriver in a junk pile. He used it to disassemble his mothers sofa recliner in the time it took her to take a shower. He removed every screw, hinge and spring and spread them across the floor. He would always be on excursions, Jamie Farnsworth said. He was always making something or inventing something. Sometimes his inventions worked. Sometimes they didnt.

A person with a CTErelated post-secondary credential will earn an average of $4,000 more a year than a person with a humanities degree, and those students with postsecondary credentials in a high demand field such as health care, can earn as much as $20,000 more a year. There is another component to CTE programs that is not talked about enough. That is the student organizations that work hand-inhand with the CTE program. Organizations such as the FFA, Skills USA and the Future Business Leaders of America provide excellent opportunities for students to develop leadership skills that are necessary in todays workplace. These student organizations prepare young people to become productive citizens and leaders in their communities. These student organizations provide a motivation factor in student learning that pays great dividends in the workplace. In future articles I will present more information about the CTE student organizations. Denise Willis is the director of Withlacoochee Technical Institute. WILLIS Continued from Page C1 CAREERS Continued from Page C1 At 6, he started a fire at his grandparents house when he put a remote control wire antennae into a wall socket. The blaze blackened a wall. He blew up bottles and made root beer. Twice, he tried raising fish. A hose came loose on his first attempt and syphoned all 55 gallons of water onto the floor. On the second, a 45gallon trash can full of sea water tipped over. At 13, Conrad put a bomb made of hydrochloric acid and aluminum foil into a garbage can, to see how long it took to react. After several minutes, nothing happened. He lifted the lid and the bomb exploded. His parents used to understand his projects. Now, their eyes glaze over as he talks about alpha particles, boron tin tubes and decaying tritium. Teenage fusioneerConrads real coup is the fusion reactor. He stumbled onto the idea in seventh grade. Fusion sounded fascinating, and the father of fusion, Philo T. Farnsworth, shared his last name. But he didnt think nuclear fusion was for middle schoolers. At 13, he pigeonholed the project. Fusion is the smashing of nuclei. If harnessed, it has the potential for clean, incredible power. But, to date, no one has created fusion that produces more energy than it consumes. Fusion doesnt require uranium or produce radioactive byproducts like fission does, and its legal for a teenager to make in his dads garage. Members of the international amateur fusion community helped direct Conrad. They answered questions and lent him parts. In return, hes mailed parts to other budding amateurs. A YouTube video he filmed at 10:45 p.m. Dec. 1, 2011, documented the moment he became a teenage fusioneer. Hes in his bathrobe and sounds just a little delirious after several late nights. He explains his accomplishment and shows a machines reading proving it worked. Even if he hadnt shown the evidence, a commenter posted on the video, Conrads enthusiasm was proof enough.

Current standards already regulate the nutritional content of school breakfasts and lunches that are subsidized by the federal government, but most lunch rooms also have a la carte lines that sell other foods. And food sold through vending machines and in other ways outside the lunchroom has not been federally regulated. Parents and teachers work hard to instill healthy eating habits in our kids, and these efforts should be supported when kids walk through the schoolhouse door, said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. Most snacks sold in school would have to have less than 200 calories. Elementary and middle schools could sell only water, low-fat milk or 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice. High schools could sell some sports drinks, diet sodas and iced teas, but the calories would be limited. Drinks would be limited to 12ounce portions in middle schools, and 8-ounce portions in elementary schools. The standards will cover vending machines, the a la carte lunch lines, snack bars and any other foods regularly sold around school. They would not apply to in-school fundraisers or bake sales, though states have the power to regulate them. The new guidelines also would not apply to after-school concessions at school games or theater events, goodies brought from home for classroom celebrations, or anything students bring for their own personal consumption. The new rules are the latest in a long list of changes designed to make foods served in schools more healthful and accessible. Nutritional guidelines for the subsidized lunches were revised last year and put in place last fall. The 2010 child nutrition law also provided more money for schools to serve free and reduced-cost lunches and required more meals to be served to hungry kids. Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, a Democrat, has been working for two decades to take junk foods out of schools. He calls the availability of unhealthful foods around campus a loophole that undermines the taxpayer money that helps pay for the healthier subsidized lunches. USDAs proposed nutrition standards are a critical step in closing that loophole and in ensuring that our schools are places that nurture not just the minds of American children but their bodies as well, Harkin said. Last years rules faced criticism from some conservatives, including some Republicans in Congress, who said the government shouldnt be telling kids what to eat. Mindful of that backlash, the Agriculture Department exempted in-school fundraisers from federal regulation and proposed different options for some parts of the rule, including the calorie limits for drinks in high schools, which would be limited to either 60 calories or 75 calories in a 12ounce portion. The department also has shown a willingness to work with schools to resolve complaints that some new requirements are hard to meet. Last year, for example, the government relaxed some limits on meats and grains in subsidized lunches after school nutritionists said they werent working. Schools, the food industry, interest groups and other critics or supporters of the new proposal will have 60 days to comment and suggest changes. A final rule could be in place as soon as the 2014 school year. Margo Wootan, a nutrition lobbyist for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said surveys done by her organization show that most parents want changes in the lunchroom. Parents arent going to have to worry that kids are using their lunch money to buy candy bars and a Gatorade instead of a healthy school lunch, she said. The food industry has been onboard with many of the changes, and several companies worked with Congress on the child nutrition law two years ago. Major beverage companies have already agreed to take the most caloric sodas out of schools. But those same companies, including Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, also sell many of the non-soda options, like sports drinks, and have lobbied to keep them in vending machines. A spokeswoman for the American Beverage Association, which represents the soda companies, said they already have greatly reduced the number of calories kids are consuming at school by pulling out the highcalorie sodas. STANDARDSContinued from Page C1 Associated Press The government, for the first time, is proposing broad new standards to make school snacks healthier, a move that would ban the sale of almost all candy, high-calorie sports drinks and greasy foods on campus.

An author can relate a tale in a book. Actors can tell a story through a movie or play. This week, The Mini Page leaps into the world of ballet. When it first began, ballet, like many other types of dance, was another way to tell a story. Ballets beginnings The first ballet was believed to have taken place in 1581 more than 400 years ago! At that time, kings and queens kept huge courts of people to serve and entertain them. Court entertainers wore fancy costumes and performed speaking and singing roles, along with dancing and music. The first ballet, the Ballet Comique de la Reine, was performed in Paris during a three-day wedding celebration at the court of Catherine de Medici, the wife of King Henry II of France. The story it told was of the Greek goddess Circe. The ballet lasted more than five hours. Royal influences Ballet de cour or court dance, called for specific movements pointed feet and turned-out legs, for example. These positions would later become the basis for the five basic ballet positions. As ballet became more technical and specific as a dance form, costumes were changed. For example, the enormous wigs and skirts of the time made it difficult for dancers to turn quickly and jump. Skirts became shorter so that legs and feet could be seen by the audience.Ballerinas In the 1700s and 1800s, ballerinas began to dance on pointe up on their toes in special shoes called pointe shoes Famous ballerinas became known for their special talents jumps, turns or beautiful arms. Europe and Russia Ballet became popular in Italy, France and Russia. In the early 20th century, an arts promoter named Sergei Diaghilev started a ballet company in Paris called the Ballets Russes (roos), or Russian Ballet. Experts say his company changed the way people experienced ballet. During this time, the male dancer became more important to the dance. In addition, great composers began to create music for ballet, and artists such as Picasso began creating sets for the productions. The French King Louis XIV loved dance. In the mid-1600s, he started a dance academy in Paris and often danced in its ballets. Pointe shoes Words that remind us of ballet are hidden in the block below.

This is a Christmas story that includes many children in the company or cast. The music was written by a Russian composer, Peter Tchaikovsky \bCHI\r+/&&\r skee). The story was based on a tale by E.T.A. Hoffmann called The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. It features a little girl, Clara, who is given a nutcracker doll for Christmas. But her brother, Fritz, breaks the doll. \000\000,ATER\000THAT\000NIGHT\f\000#LARA\000SNEAKS\000 into the parlor to find her doll. She finds that some of the toys have come to life, and mice and gingerbread men are having a battle! Claras nutcracker defeats the Mouse King and turns into a prince, WHO\000TAKES\000#LARA\000TO\000THE\000,AND\000OF\000 Sweets. When Clara wakes up back in her own parlor, she wonders if her adventures were really just a dream. Classical ballets combine music and stories. Several of them have been performed for hundreds of years and are still popular with audiences today. Two examples of classical ballets are: Peter Tchaikovsky \000\000s\000 Swan Lake. Tchaikovsky also composed the music for this ballet, about a prince who falls in love with a maiden who is under the power of an evil spell. The spell turns her into a swan during the day.

Barry: Because they are wearing slippers! from The Mini Page 2013 Universal Uclick Ballet and YouThe Mini Page Staff Betty Debnam Founding Editor and Editor at Large Lisa Tarry Managing Editor Lucy Lien Associate Editor Wendy Daley A rtist Getting started How do kids start in ballet? Most children start between the ages of 3 and 5 in creative movement and tap dance classes. Around 8 to 10 years old, a ballet student may attend class twice a week. As a student gets to be 13 or 14 years old, he or she must make a more serious commitment to ballet instruction. Classes may be three to six times a week, and students may be expected to practice every day. Some older teenagers go to boarding programs, where they live and study at the ballet school. At 17 or 18 years old, they begin auditioning or trying out, with ballet companies. Ballet is hard work, but its fun! an expert says. Kids should experience ballet live. Ballet basics Beginning ballet students learn five basic positions. These moves are combined to make many different movements in ballet. But every step begins and ends with one of these positions. The Mini Page thanks Jo Matos, director of Children and Young Dancer Programs, Joffrey Ballet School, New York City, for help with this issue. Next week, The Mini Page is about the Westminster Dog Show. Ballet in the United States In 1934, the School of American "ALLET\000WAS\000FOUNDED\000IN\000.EW\000ORK\000 City by George Balanchine, a choreographer originally from Russia. (A choreographer is someone who designs a dance for performance.) This and other ballet companies changed this type of dance again, producing new versions of classic ballets and developing new ballets that were centered around a theme ( contemporary ballet) instead of a story ( narrative ballet). Music for ballet For narrative ballet, a choreographer and composer work together to create a ballet. For contemporary ballet, a choreographer takes a piece of music and designs a ballet to go along with it. In 1944, composer Aaron Copland wrote a piece of orchestral music called Appalachian Spring for a narrative ballet choreographed by Martha Graham.

Third position: Heel of one foot in front of middle of other foot. One arm curved above you, the other out to the side. Fourth position: One foot crossed in front of the other. Both feet turned out. One arm out in a gentle curve in front of you; the other arm curving above your head. Fifth position: Heel of front foot against toe of back foot. Both feet turned out. Both arms curve over your head. Fingers and shoulders relaxed. Kids might think ballet is boring, but a production such as this one by the Colorado Ballet of Where the Wild Things Are, with the beasts dancing on the stage, captures the imagination of even young children. photo by Tony Shapiro, courtesy Colorado Ballet from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickSupersport: Skylar DigginsHeight: 5-9 Birthdate: 8-2-90 Hometown: South Bend, Ind. Skylar Diggins wants to do more. Not that she hasnt done a ton already. The ambitious University of Notre Dame senior is a dazzling, three-time All-American point guard who does it all scores, runs the offense and plays bandit-like defense. Diggins, a hometown favorite, averaged 16.8 points, dished out 222 assists and made 102 steals last season. She can get past defenses on speedy drives to the basket or pop in 3-point shots. Diggins also shines in the classroom, making the Big East All-Academic team all three years while majoring in manager entrepreneurship. Sky, her nickname, always aims high. And this season she wants to lead the Irish to another lofty record. TM

C6 W EDNESDAY, F EBRUARY6, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Bridge is full of suit combinations that can be played in different ways, depending on the number of tricks needed or the circumstances in a particular deal. Taken in isolation, how should South handle todays heart suit for either five tricks or four? And in the full deal, how should South play in six hearts after West leads the diamond queen? In the auction, Norths three-heart rebid was game-forcing. Souths three spades was a control-bid (cue-bid) indicating a maximum, the spade ace and slam interest if North had a sufficiently strong hand. Four clubs and four diamonds were also control-bids, showing the aces of those suits. To play the heart suit without loss, declarer should cash dummys king before finessing his jack. If South can afford one loser, he should cash his ace, play low to dummys king, and lead back toward his jack. (This would be the right play in six hearts if West had led a spade, not a diamond.) In this deal, though, if South loses an early trump trick, the opponents will cash two diamond winners. The best line of play is to take the heart king and ace immediately. Here, the queen drops and declarer can claim an overtrick. But if the queen remains elusive, South plays on clubs, hoping to discard both of his diamond losers. If hearts are 3-2, declarer needs the defender with the queen to have at least three clubs. If hearts are 4-1 without giving South two unavoidable losers, the key defender must hold at least four clubs.

Dennis turned to drugs and has missed important moments in our lives, such as weddings and holidays. He only shows up at my mothers or grandmothers house to take a shower, and then he goes out again. My family and I are trying so hard to point him back in the right direction. Two months ago, I had to have Dennis arrested for assaulting me. We are all worried that something terrible is going to happen. There are times when he is completely out of it and doesnt know whats going on. What do we do? Worried Family in Illinois Dear Worried : It is a nightmare when a family member is on drugs, because there is little you can do. Your brother must want to stop and be willing to get appropriate treatment. Hes not there yet. It is important that your family members protect themselves while being open to any genuine efforts your brother makes to get clean. If he is in college, notify the counselors there, and contact Nar-Anon (nar-anon.org) for support. Dear Annie : My nephew is getting married soon. The wedding will take place in Canada. My husband and I do not own passports, nor would we ever buy them, because they are expensive and we would never use them again. We have traveled to other family weddings within the United States, but we dont feel we should be pressured to attend a wedding out of the country. We cant afford it. Do you think we are required to be there? Soon To Be Family Outcast Dear Soon: No. You are not obligated to attend any wedding, and certainly not one that is beyond your financial means. While we believe family members should make an effort to attend one anothers special events, it should not require overextending yourselves. Send your regrets and a nice gift to make up for your absence. Dear Annie : I read the letter from Need Your Input, the idiot who was critical of his girlfriends Southern drawl. He shouldnt wait until she moves north. She deserves to know now that he is a passiveaggressive loser. Who would presume to tell a grown woman that her accent is offensive? I could understand if it were a grammar issue or if her language were laced with profanities, but her speech pattern is who she is. And she will not lose it if she moves north. It may soften slightly, but it will never go away completely. Clearly, this guy has other issues. If he truly cared for her, this accent would not bother him. In fact, most folks find a Southern accent delightful. It is soothing, relaxing and way sexy. I surely hope this lady discovers who this jerk really is before she changes her life for him. A Yankee in North Carolina Dear Yankee: We agree that if he cannot tolerate her accent, he should not stay in the relationship. But it is not uncommon for people to find one particular trait annoying, no matter how much they otherwise care for a person. And its a highly individual degree of preference and tolerance. You love your boyfriend, but think the way he gestures with his hands is appalling. You adore your girlfriend, but she speaks too softly for your taste. These are neither negative nor positive traits to others. This particular guy finds this particular drawl to be grating. He needs to figure out how important it is to him in the grand scheme of his relationship. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

A major component of CFs Honors Institute, the Community of Scholars Honors Program offers incoming high school graduates two-year tuition scholarships, currently valued at $3,000 per academic year, while offering partial scholarships to those who are currently attending CF. Students in the honors program are free to pursue the degree option of their choosing at CF, with the scholarship requirement being successful participation in a limited number of honors-level classes that also serve to fulfill degree requirements.

Join the excitement as the Homosassa Public Library begins a new Celebrate Reading program from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays. Celebrate Reading is a session consisting of two programs geared toward helping preschool and elementary school-age children develop literacy skills, improve their reading and gain a love of books. The first program, PAWS to Read, gives children the opportunity to build confidence in their reading ability by reading aloud to a certified therapist. The second program, Reading Pals, pairs teens and younger children together. Teens read storybooks aloud to one or two younger children at a time. Children may wish to draw or write about a story they like. Listening to stories, talking about stories and reading aloud are great ways to improve literacy skills while having a good time. For information, call the youth librarian at 352-628-5626. Citrus County Parks & Recreation is offering baton classes at the Citrus Springs Community Center. Classes are open to all girls and boys ages 4 to college age. No experience is necessary. For information, call Diane Sorvillo at 352-5276540.

CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCounty commissioners feared it might happen, and then it did. But they feel prepared to face the closure of the Crystal River nuclear power plant (CR3) announced Tuesday. While this is a major issue and there is no doubt this will have severe negative impacts on our county, the future of Citrus County is bright, said Commission Chairman Joe Meek. We are working with ProgressDuke Energy because they are still a large employer in our county and they still have a substantial amount of investment in Citrus County, and we will continue to partner with them and work with them in the future. Meek said the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) for many months has talked with Duke Energy about its plan to build a natural gasfueled power plant in Florida. The BOCC has urged the gas plant to be built in Citrus County, Meek said.

It impacts a lot of good jobs in a county that doesnt have that many good jobs. Its going to be a huge fiscal impact on the county insofar as taxes. When you already have bad things going on, its demoralizing. No nuke plant: Now what? PATFAHERTY Staff writerFacing costly lengthy repairs, Duke Energy parent company of Progress Energy Florida has announced it will retire the Crystal River nuclear plant. Retirement raises issues of job loss, reduced tax revenue, customer electricity bills, storing spent nuclear fuel, replacement power, the fate of related facilities, environmental and regulatory issues. The nuclear unit began operation in 1977. The plant known as CR3 has been shut down since 2009, predating the ProgressDuke merger. It currently has approximately 600 full-time employees, 200 long-term contract workers and another 400 short-term contract workers associated with the plant. The companys four coal plants, which employ about 300, will continue to operate Crystal River merchants concer ned about plant closures impact on business. With the decision to close the Cr ystal River nuclear power plant customers will not see any return on their forced $1.3 billion investment, according to state Rep. Mike Fasano. The CR3 plant has been a k ey economic engine in this community for 30 years and all of Citrus County will be affected in a very real way, U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent said. Citrus Countys state la wmakers, Sen. Charles Dean and Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, say they are optimistic the community will adjust to life without a nuclear power plant.

Were going to be like surrounding counties that never had one, the Beverly Hills contractor and active member of the Citrus County Builders Association said.

City to auction property onlineINVERNESS Amid the talk of upgrades to the intersection of Seminole Avenue and U.S. 41, extending the lease agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for themunicipal parking lot on North Pine Avenueand welcoming SCORE to the Inverness Government Center,members of Inverness City Council voted at their regular meeting Tuesday todispose of surplus city property through an online auction rather than accepting bids for it. Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said many governments are using online auctions for this purpose. It puts the city in a better position to receive capital dollars, he said. It improves the return on property we no longer need.Lawmakers push for online taxTALLAHASSEE Theres a new twist this year in the annual push to make online retailers collect sales tax from Florida buyers. Supporters of the move are linking the prospect of new online taxes to other tax cuts for businesses and consumers in order to win over a skeptical Legislature. The first step came Tuesday when a Senate panel approved a sweeping tax measure aimed at getting online sellers to collect the states 6 percent sales tax from Florida residents. The world has changed and we need to recognize the change, said Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, one of the sponsors of the legislation. Floridians are supposed to pay taxes for online purchases but theres really no way to enforce the law. Under current laws, the state cant force out-of-state retailers such as Seattle-based Amazon.com to collect the tax unless it has a physical presence such as a warehouse or store. Detert has long favored forcing online retailers to collect the same tax now collected by brick and mortar stores, but the effort hasnt gotten very far in the Capitol.No trial delay in Martin caseSANFORD The murder trial for the Florida man charged in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin remains set for a June start after a judge Tuesday denied a defense request for a postponement. George Zimmermans lead attorney Mark OMara presented a motion to have the trial pushed back to November. He argued that prosecutors had been slow to turn over needed evidence. State attorney Bernie de la Rionda denied the accusation the prosecution had been dragging its feet and said it was rather a case of the defense using inefficient means to secure the information it wanted. With roughly four months left before the scheduled June 10 trial, Judge Debra Nelson said she felt the defense still has time to work out the outstanding issues. I dont see any of your issues to be insurmountable, Nelson said. The 29-year-old Zimmerman is claiming he acted in self-defense in shooting the 17-year-old last year after the two got into a fight and has pleaded not guilty to a second-degree murder charge. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS During World War II, 378,000 German soldiers were taken as prisoners of war by American troops and sent to the United States about 10,000 sent to Florida, including several hundred to nearby Leesburg. As part of the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum Coffee and Conversation Speakers Series, Dr. Robert Billinger will present a free program based his book, Humanity Beyond the Barbed Wire: Hitlers Soldiers in the Sunshine State, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in Inverness. Billinger is a professor of history at Wingate University in North Carolina, where he has taught since 1979. He has also written the book, Nazi POWs in the Tar Heel State. He traveled to Germany and Austria when he was younger and met up with some German POWs and was interested in their stories, said Kathy Turner Thompson, Citrus Countys historical resources officer. This program introduces the current museum exhibit, Humanity Beyond the Barbed Wire. The exhibit, on loan from the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg, will be on display until March 1. Since weve had the exhibit up, weve had visitors say they recall (the POWs) being in other parts of the country, not just the southern states, Thompson said. Of the ones who were here in Florida, 1,000 were at Camp Blanding, some at MacDill Air Force Base and some at Eglin in the Panhandle. The one place they liked the least was Clewiston because of all the snakes. She added that Billinger will tell stories about how the German prisoners were treated by the Americans, their first-hand stories of how they were treated by their own government and about their contribution to the U.S. labor force during their time here.

Page A3WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Special to the Chronicle WASHINGTON, D.C. Following the announcement by Duke Energy that it will permanently close the Crystal River nuclear plant, U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent, RBrooksville, issued the following statement: For the six hundred families who are directly affected by Duke Energys decision, this is going to be a devastating blow. But the economic impact of the decision goes far beyond just the workers employed at the plant. The plant has been a key economic engine in this community for 30 years and all of Citrus County will be affected in a very real way. Community leaders all over the county have been pushing Progress and then Duke Energy to repair the plant for years now, including myself. I know all parties involved have worked as hard as possible to find a solution for Citrus County and the focus will now shift to making sure that Citrus will be home to future investments by the company. In particular, the natural gas-fueled plant being considered by Duke would be a tremendous asset for the state and for the community for years to come and I plan on working with both the leaders in this community and Duke Energy in the coming months to find a viable way forward. Its energy and its jobs and Central Florida desperately needs both. I know were all going to do everything we can. ... Its a mighty tough day for Citrus County, but I know were all going to turn our eyes now to the future to see what is possible. Special to the ChronicleState Rep. Mike Fasano has been a longtime critic of Duke/Progress Energys collection of $1.3 billion to fix a broken nuclear reactor at the Crystal River power plant. With Duke/Progress Energys decision to close the plant, customers will not see any return on their forced investment, Fasanos office said in a statement issued Tuesday. This utility has collected over $1.3 billion from its customers for the repair of its broken power plant that apparently will now never be fixed, Fasano said. The poor choices made by Duke/Progress Energys present and former executives leave customers with nothing to show for the huge bills they have been forced to pay. The Crystal River plant has been plagued by problems. An attempt to fix a cracked reactor (containment building) by the company, rather than turning to outside experts, only exacerbated the problem, rendering the plant all but inoperable. Additionally, permitting issues and related difficulties held up the construction of a new plant elsewhere in Florida. All told, customers bank accounts are emptier, and their wallets are lighter, while the utility will pocket huge sums of money that doubtfully will ever be returned to the people who paid it, Fasano said. The lack of transparency during this ordeal, the promises not kept and the false hopes all are dashed with todays announcement. Mike Fasano Rich Nugent Nugent pledges dedication; Fasano blasts decision MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Citrus Countys state lawmakers say they are optimistic the community will adjust to life without a nuclear power plant. State Sen. Charlie Dean said the county commission should absorb the loss of taxes brought about with the closing of the Progress Energy Florida power plant. And state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith said the county should be prepared to help about 600 nuclear plant employees who face potential job loss. If anybody is going to be laid off or transitioned to another career field, we want to make sure were ahead of that, Smith, RInverness, said. Dean, R-Inverness, said he was not surprised by the Duke Energy announcement that it was retiring the nuclear power plant rather than repairing it. They got a good return on their investment, Dean said, referring to the fact that the power plant came on line in 1977. Theres a lifetime and a lifeline on nuclear plants. Theyre not going to last forever. Prior to his 2010 election to the state House, Smith worked for a company that had a security contract for the nuclear plant. Smith said Tuesday he doesnt expect much change in the number of security officers because the plant must still be protected. I dont see any quick, dramatic layoff of security personnel, he said. If theres any kind of nuclear entity there, it would need security. Both Dean and Smith urged county leaders to absorb the tax hit without resorting to higher property taxes. Theyve got to cut back, live within their means, Dean said. Smith said he hopes the nuclear shutdown is offset by a wider economic base. Its going to be a huge fiscal impact on the county insofar as taxes, he said. When you already have bad things going on its demoralizing. He added: We need to diversify the economy and provide incentives to grow businesses. We should make sure we put out to various businesses in Florida that Citrus County is the place to come.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com.

SIDIBEANDNANCYKENNEDY Staff writersCRYSTAL RIVER Hilda Fialko, the owner of the selfdescribed shop where eclectic funk meets simple elegance to eyewear in the citys Heritage Village, is grappling with Duke Energys announcement. Fialkos shop, Mez Mer Eyes, off North Citrus Avenue, is a supplier of safety glasses to the plant. Duke announced Tuesday it is retiring the nuclear portion of the power complex. The nuclear plant employs 600 people but has not been operational since 2009. It will be a big hit for us. Actually, we just got a check from them for 22 glasses we did for them, Fialko said. On South Citrus Avenue, at The Wine Shop and Wine Bar, Dan Sullivan was surprised and dismayed by the decision. Its going to be devastating to the economy, he said. Sullivan, who works parttime at the store, said Duke Energy workers have been a constant for the business. That is really bad news, Sullivan added. At the Shell station, across U.S. 19 North from Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, clerk Greg Dristiliaris said business has been ebbing since the 2009 stoppage of nuclear operations. It used to be we would have long lines in here and we even created this sandwich shop. The workers would stop on their way to work or during lunch breaks, Dristiliaris said. Though we stopped the sandwich shop, we still rely on them a lot for business and so many others in the area rely on them. We kind of expected it, but this is not good. Oysters Restaurant has been in business in Crystal River since 1954, owned by William Bunch since 1995. Bunch had just heard the news about Duke Energys plans to close the Crystal River area nuclear plant Tuesday morning and said he had no idea how the closing would affect his business. At one time he ran the Progress Energy cafeteria and had catered events for the company, including one very big event in 2011. Its hard to tell what percentage of my customers comes from there, Bunch said. Regardless, Im going to stay here. We have a lot of local people who support us. Mike Kazemfar, owner of Quiznos in the Shoppes of Crystal River plaza on State Road 44, said the Duke decision affects every business in the area. Their employees are our customers, he said. We have no way of knowing who works out there, but sometimes they come in wearing their badges. Theyre good customers of ours, and Id hate to lose them. Also in the same plaza, Liberty Tax has been in Crystal River at that location for seven years. Owner Mike Gearhart said, Any decisions for businesses that move out of the area or dont employ people here or employ fewer people directly impacts our business because there are fewer people who need to file tax returns. Laura Lou Tolle Fitzpatrick, lifelong county resident and longtime business owner, said all of the downtown Crystal River businesses will be negatively impacted. As the owner of Heritage House and event coordinator for Heritage Village, Fitzpatrick said she knows employees of the nuclear plant as well as all of Progress Energy account for a good percentage of business in the area, especially at restaurants. The plant brings a lot of people, she said. Were a shopping destination and we definitely depend on their employees supporting us. Its going to affect us all.

Part of the British invasion spurred by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, The Troggs perfected a hard-driving approach to the three-minute rock song miles away from the lyrical art-rock of the Beatles or the poetic songs of Bob Dylan. Presley, also a prolific songwriter, helped found the Troggs in the 1960s while he was working as a bricklayer. Born Reg Ball, he took the stage name Presley at his managers suggestion.

Associated PressNEW YORK Too much drama, boredom and scads of irrelevant information are just some of the reasons Facebook users give for taking a break from the worlds biggest social networking site for weeks at a time, according to a new study. A report from the Pew Research Centers Internet and American Life Project found that some 61 percent of Facebook users had taken a hiatus of at least several weeks for myriad reasons, whether they were weary from an onslaught of gossip, or for the more pious, the arrival of Lent. Yet the use of Facebook, whether constant or not, is pervasive in America. Of the American adults who use the Internet, 67 percent are on Facebook, Pew found. That compares with 20 percent who use LinkedIn and 16 percent who are on Twitter. But users do come and go, some temporarily, and some for good. Seven percent of Internet users said they used Facebook at one point but no longer do. By its own count, Facebook Inc. has 1.06 billion users worldwide who check in at least once a month. This includes millions of duplicate and fake accounts. More than 150 million users are in the U.S. The largest slice of users, 20 percent, said that they were simply too busy with their own lives to follow the constant stream of status updates, George Takei quotes and baby photos. Privacy and security concerns, which have received plenty of media coverage, were low on the list. Only 4 percent of people gave these reasons, combined with concerns about ads and spam, as their Facebook vacation motivation. Lee Rainie, director of the Internet and American Life Project, said privacy is more of a big policy question that people do not concern themselves with day-byday. Rather, people are contemplating how they spend their time and allocate their attention. People are making interesting calibrations and recalibrations about how they spend their time and about the worth of constantly staying connected to friends, family and others online, Rainie said. And while people do take Facebook breaks, Internet users are logging in more frequently than ever, the study found. Among other interesting tidbits:59 percent of Facebook users said the site is about as important to them as it was a year ago.12 percent said Facebook is more important to them than it was a year ago and 28 percent said it has become less important.8 percent said they took a break from Facebook because they were spending too much time using it.69 percent said they plan to spend the same amount of time on Facebook in the coming year. Twenty-seven percent plan to spend less time on the site and 3 percent, more time. The Pew study of 1,006 U.S. adults was done in December. It has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points.

uncertainty thats obviously been on our minds and everybodys minds, said John Siefert, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council. Now we have a clear picture. Kevin Cunningham, a past president of the Realtors Association of Citrus County, said the economic impact began long before Dukes announcement. The damage has already been done, he said. Chris Ensing, a contractor who also rents 24 apartment units in Crystal River, said he started noticing nearly two years ago the impact of Progress Energy Floridas decision to let the nuclear plant sit idle. Once they stalled on that repair, it slowed down, he said. Ensing and other landlords and hotel owners thrived when Progress would close the plant for annual repairs and scheduled outages. Progress brought hundreds of workers into the county and they would stay several months. Now Ensing expects to see the opposite: Progress workers leaving Citrus County in search of other opportunities. Theyre used to a pretty high standard of pay, he said. Were going to see a lot of homes for sale and property values decrease as people are leaving. Siefert, however, found room for optimism. He noted that Duke kept the door open to building a naturalgas power plant in Citrus County. He also said that Dukes economic development team is working with Citrus County to identify property to attract industry. I still think its a major employer here, he said. They understand the negative impact to Citrus County and theyre trying to offset that by helping us. They have a record of helping economic development in the areas they serve. Cunningham said he believes real estate business along U.S. 19 will pick up now that the company has finalized its decision. Crystal River cant get any worse than it is today, he said. All I see is it improving. I see it every day. Im starting to see people make up their minds and not put it off any longer. Theres a built-up demand sitting out there. Houston said the Duke decision should be kept in perspective. There was a Crystal River before the nuclear plant, he said, and there will be a Crystal River after the nuclear plant.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. Brad Thorpe has conducted regular budget workshops toward setting the next budget. The workshops will continue at the BOCCs next meeting on Tuesday, when Thorpe will present proposals about such alternative revenueraising options as Municipal Services Taxing Units (MSTUs) to levy millage on existing services and Municipal Services Benefits Units (MSBUs) for funding other services and constructing and maintaining capital facilities. Meek said the BOCC had been preparing for Dukes decision through the workshops and by making a top priority of diversifying the countys economy. Now, in addition to previous budget cuts and future alternative revenue sources, property tax increases through raising the millage rate appear to be a stronger possibility. We knew the bubble was going to burst sometime, said Commissioner John Kenney. I knew from the beginning that CR3 was going down the tubes. Its going to cause us to get creative. We are starting now to look at the MSBUs and MSTUs. We may have to look into a millage increase. Commissioner Scott Adams, however, said he wont favor a millage increase. How can we raise taxes if the whole county is out of work? Adams asked in response to the question of a millage rate increase. Adams said he expected CR3 to be shut down. Its a community problem, Adams said. Weve got to deal with it like a community. The answer is not an increase in taxes right now because nobody can afford it. Theyre laying off 600 people at Duke and were increasing their taxes? Adams said the county is in trouble. Until government starts wising up about how they are managing and spending their money, were not going to fix it, Adams said. Rather than conduct the budget workshops, Adams said the BOCC should start cutting its current budget now. We know that this is already here, Adams said. This isnt something were preparing for. We should have done this three years ago when we knew the nuke plant was shutting down. When we spent our reserves, knowing this was coming to us, I can assure you Duke Energy will say we were aware of it. For us to blame them for our problems when we knew it was coming is wrong. Commissioner Dennis Damato said he believed Progress Enegy-Dukes refusal to pay its full tax bill signaled closure of CR3. We will deal with that, Damato said. Ive got some good ideas and that will start to unfold at the next (BOCC) meeting. Now that we know it is definite, it gives us something to work toward. Damato said county staff is up to the task of making a workable budget in the coming year. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said the BOCC had anticipated CR3s closure for a long time. Back in July, the board voted to start looking at alternative revenue analysis for the county as a way to stabilize our budget and other avenues to balance our budget with other options, Bays said. I think it works in our favor to lessen our dependence on Duke. Sometimes an opportunity comes out of a crisis. Thorpe said county staff would put together a plan to address the issues casued by CR3s closure. I assured the board that we will get through this and we will come up with a way to support central government services, Thorpe said. Were probably going to do a combination of everything. The plan would include cutting expenses where possible and using revenue options. Thorpe said three new revenue options will be presented at Tuesdays BOCC meeting to reduce the countys reliance on ad valorem taxes. For the future, Thorpe said he felt Duke was looking at building a gaspowered plant at the Crystal River site. We are looking at getting through the interim spell until the complex is rebuilt, Thorpe said. This is a period we have to bridge while they are reassessing the complex out there. If Duke were to rebuild, it would provide new jobs and a new tax base, Thorpe said.

Associated PressNEW ORLEANS Concerned the Superdome might not be able to handle the energy needed for its first Super Bowl since Hurricane Katrina, officials spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on upgrades to decayed utility lines, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The improvements apparently werent enough, however, to prevent an embarrassing and puzzling 34-minute power outage during the third quarter of the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Two days later, officials still had not pinpointed the cause of the outage. The Superdomes management company, SMG, and the utility that supplies the stadium, Entergy New Orleans, announced Tuesday they would hire outside experts to investigate. We wanted to leave no stone unturned, Entergy spokesman Chanel Lagarde told the AP. He said the two companies had not been able to reach a conclusion on the cause and wanted a third-party analysis. We thought it was important to get another party looking at this to make sure we were looking at everything that we need to examine, Lagarde said. SMG Vice President Doug Thornton told a news conference at City Hall later Tuesday that the hiring of a third party does not signify a disagreement between SMG and Entergy. Its important for us to have total transparency and we have agreed among ourselves that we will exchange records, Thornton said. We were metering the power. They were doing the same on their side. We need to figure out what the root cause of this is and fix it. Documents obtained Monday through a records request by The Associated Press show Superdome officials worried months ago about losing power during the NFL championship. Tests on the electrical feeders that connect incoming power from utility lines to the stadium showed decay and a chance of failure, state officials warned in a memo dated Oct. 15. The documents, obtained by the AP through a records request, also show Entergy expressed concern about the reliability of the service before the Super Bowl. Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Flunked, retained, held back. Whatever you call it, increasing numbers of states are not promoting students who are struggling to read at the end of third grade. Thirty-two states have passed legislation designed to improve third-grade literacy, according to the Education Commission of the States. Retention is part of the policies in 14 states, with some offering more leeway than others. Passing children up the grade ladder when we know they cant read is irresponsible and cruel, said Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback in announcing in his recent State of the State address that thirdgraders should demonstrate an ability to read before being promoted. He also proposed a $12 million program for improving third-graders reading skills. Backers say retention policies put pressure on teachers and parents to make sure children succeed. But opponents say students fare better if theyre promoted and offered extra help. They say holding students back does nothing to address the underlying problems that caused them to struggle and is the single biggest school drop-out predictor. Students whove been retained have a two-fold increased risk of dropping out compared to students with similar academic struggles who werent retained, said Arthur Reynolds, a professor at the University of Minnesotas Human Capital Research Collaborative, citing studies of students in Chicago and Baltimore. Retention policies were tried out in large city districts, but in recent years have been scaled back or dropped in places like Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Ending so-called social promotion was one of Jeb Bushs education reforms when he was governor of Florida, and his nonprofit Foundation for Excellence in Education began touting the reform package after it started in 2008.A8WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY6, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000DXSP www.createmorespace.com 1251 Commercial Way, Spring Hill 1-352-684-1400 1-877-590-4948 Closet Organizers World Famous Murphy Beds Wall Beds Home Office Solutions Entertainment Units Garage Systems Largest Selection in Florida.

US sues S&P over mortgage ratingsWASHINGTON The U.S. government says Standard & Poors knowingly inflated its ratings on risky mortgage investments that helped trigger the 2008 financial crisis. The credit rating agency gave high marks to mortgagebacked securities because it wanted to earn more business from the banks that issued the investments, the Justice Department alleges in civil charges filed in federal court in Los Angeles. The government is demanding S&P pay at least $5 billion in penalties.Gun background checks declineWASHINGTON The number of federal background checks for firearms sales declined in the U.S. last month, as retailers continue to run out of guns to sell during a buying spree driven by Washingtons new focus on gun control. Background checks decreased 10 percent nationally between December and January, with large declines in the Southern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia as well as Texas, according to an Associated Press analysis of new FBI data published Tuesday. Firearms sales surged around the country after the December shooting spree in Newtown, Conn.Report: Family leave law workingWASHINGTON The Labor Department says 16 percent of eligible workers took time off last year under the Family and Medical Leave Act to recover from an illness, care for a new child or tend to a sick relative. The data comes from a government survey issued on the laws 20th anniversary. Labor officials say it shows the law is helping millions of workers cope with family hardships with little disruption to employers. The law allows eligible workers up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave without fear of losing their jobs. Since it took effect, workers have taken leave more than 100 million times. Last year, about 57 percent went on leave for an illness. Another 22 percent took leave for child care and 19 percent cared for a sick relative.EPA sees decline in carbon pollutionWASHINGTON The Environmental Protection Agency says heat-trapping gases from U.S. power plants fell 4.6 percent in 2011 from the previous year as plants burned less coal, the biggest source of greenhouse gas pollution. The report, released Tuesday, said power plants remain the largest stationary source of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that trigger global warming. Power plants were responsible for 2,221 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2011. The reduction from 2010 reflects a relative decline in the use of coal, the dominant U.S. energy source, and an increase in natural gas and renewable sources that produce lower amounts of greenhouse gases. Power plants produced roughly one-third of total U.S. emissions, followed by petroleum and natural gas systems, with refineries the third-largest pollution source.Disneys earnings beat forecastsBURBANK, Calif. Disney won over more fans on Wall Street with its latest quarterly performance, despite a slight drop in its earnings. The downturn announced Tuesday was less pronounced than the modest dip analysts anticipated as Walt Disney Co. digested higher programming costs at its ESPN television network and dealt with a less appealing line-up of theatrical and home video releases in its movie studio. The company offset some of those problems with an advertising upturn at its ABC network and higher spending at its theme parks. It was good enough to set the stage for Disneys stock to hit a new high in Wednesdays trading. The shares gained 96 cents, or nearly 2 percent, cents to $55.25 in Tuesdays extended trading after the release of the financial results. If the stock reaches that level Wednesday, it would top its previous peak of $54.87, which the shares touched just last week. Disney earned $1.38 billion, or 77 cents per share, during its fiscal first quarter, a threemonth stretch that ended Dec. 29. That compared with net income of $1.46 billion, or 80 cents per share, in the same period in 2011.Dell to go private in $24.4B deal SAN FRANCISCO Slumping personal computer maker Dell is bowing out of the stock market in a $24.4 billion buyout that represents the largest deal of its kind since the Great Recession dried up the financing for such risky maneuvers. The complex agreement announced Tuesday will allow Dell Inc.s management, including eponymous founder Michael Dell, to attempt a company turnaround away from the glare and financial pressures of Wall Street. Dell stockholders will be paid $13.65 per share to leave the company on its own. Thats 25 percent more than the stocks price of $10.88 before word of the buyout talks trickled out three weeks ago. But its a steep markdown from the shares price of $24 six years ago when Michael Dell returned for a second goround as CEO.US home prices rose last yearWASHINGTON U.S. home prices jumped by the most in 6 1/2 years in December, spurred by a low supply of available homes and rising demand. Home prices rose 8.3 percent in December compared with a year earlier, according to data Tuesday from CoreLogic, a real estate data provider. That is the biggest annual gain since May 2006. Prices rose last year in 46 of 50 states. Home prices also rose 0.4 percent in December from the previous month. Thats a healthy increase given that sales usually slow over the winter months.Feds: 18 charged in credit card fraudNEWARK, N.J. Eighteen people were charged in what may be one of the nations largest credit card fraud rings, a sprawling international scam that duped credit-rating agencies and used thousands of fake identities to steal at least $200 million, federal authorities said Tuesday. The elaborate scheme involved improving fake cardholders credit scores, allowing the scammers to borrow more money they never repaid, investigators said. Paul Fishman, the U.S. attorney in Newark, described an intricate Jersey City-based con that began in 2007, operated in at least 28 states and wired money to Pakistan, India, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Romania, China and Japan.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY6, 2013 A9 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 500Close: 1,511.29 Change: 15.58 (1.0%) 10 DAYS 12,400 12,800 13,200 13,600 14,000 14,400 ASONDJ 13,640 13,860 14,080 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 13,979.30 Change: 99.22 (0.7%) 10 DAYSAdvanced2225 Declined837 New Highs257 New Lows13 Vol. (in mil.)3,528 Pvs. Volume3,298 2,082 1,819 1799 681 146 7 NYSE NASD DOW 14013.6013880.0813979.30+99.22+0.71%+6.68% DOW Trans.5895.115820.315884.39+64.08+1.10%+10.88% DOW Util.474.33471.36472.52+1.16+0.25%+4.29% NYSE Comp.8938.578883.898920.13+67.31+0.76%+5.64% NASDAQ3178.533136.833171.58+40.41+1.29%+5.04% S&P5001514.961495.711511.29+15.58+1.04%+5.97% S&P4001101.081091.271099.30+8.03+0.74%+7.73% Wilshire 500015986.5115794.4115953.65+159.24+1.01%+6.39% Russell 2000909.61902.38908.22+8.94+0.99%+6.93% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates 000DXY1 Crystal River 305 S.E. US 19 352-795-7223 Stocks rebound Dow up 99 points Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market bounced back Tuesday following a surge in U.S. home prices and signs of recovery in Europes economy. Strong earnings reports also helped power the gains. The Dow Jones industrial average ended the day 99.22 points higher at 13,979.30, erasing a large part of its loss from Monday. The index traded above 14,000 during the day before falling back in the last hour. The Standard & Poors 500 gained 15.59 points to 1,511.29. The Nasdaq composite was up 40.41 points to 3,171.58. The rise follows two days of whiplash. On Monday, the Dow dropped 129 points, its worst sell-off of the year so far, as fears about Europes finances resurfaced. That drop came after the index gained 149 points Friday, closing above 14,000 for the first time since 2007. After strong gains for stocks this year, investors are wondering whether they should sell now, or wait and see if the rally still has legs, said Brad Reynolds, chief investment officer at LJPR, Inc. The market is extremely skittish right now, thats why were seeing such big moves, said Reynolds. Tuesdays advance was driven by new data showing that U.S. home prices rose in December at the fastest pace in more than six years. CoreLogic, a real estate data provider, reported that home prices rose 8.3 percent. In Europe, a measure of manufacturing and service businesses rose to a 10-month high January. Estee Lauder rose $3.66, or 6 percent, to $64.71 after reporting earnings that beat analysts expectations. Profits surged 13 percent at the beauty products company as sales in the U.S. and emerging markets rose. Computer Sciences Corp., an information technology services company, was the biggest gainer in the S&P 500. CSC rose $3.84, or 9.2 percent, to $45.75 after the company said it was raising its earnings outlook for the year because its cost-cutting efforts were yielding better results than it had expected.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 Confusing numbers on health careIn Tuesdays edition of theChronicle, there was an AP article on the new health care market. Some of the dollar figures seem somewhat misleading. The article references Gov. Rick Scott being wary of the increased cost a Medicare expansion could bring to Florida taxpayers and has been accused of playing politics with numbers after he referenced figures showing costs could be as high as $26 billion over a decade. The state health agency later revised that figure to $3 billion. In the next column, it is stated that the current Medicaid program costs more than $21 billion a year with the federal government picking up roughly half the tab. This figure covers about 3 million people. Maybe Im mistaken, but it seems that that would leave the state with a $10.5 billion bill for the current 3 million people. Thats about $3.5 billion per million people. With the new expanded Medicaid coverage adding 900,000 people, my calculator tells me that would be an addition of close to $3.1 billion per year, or about $30 billion for the next decade. Please explain to me where the state health agency came up with their revised figure of a $3 billion cost for the decade.Butch Adams HomosassaEditors note: Therein lies the debate. Scott estimates the expansion would cost $26 billion over the next 10 years, while the states health agency says it will cost $3 billion. The truth is both figures are guesses. The state health care agency is calculating that a lot of the existing costs are contained in the Medicaid programs overhead and system infrastructure and the actual yearly assistance meted out to those served is nowhere near the estimates Scott is presenting. Only time will tell. Gov. Rick Scotts announcement of a record $74.2 billion state budget plan had the unmistakeable air of a re-election campaign rally last week. Thats not his fault. Governors always make a big splash with their budgets, both to make a public statement of their priorities and to generate a little momentum going into the legislative session. Even a highly popular governor cant wait until an election year to start running, and when polls show your personal popularity ranking somewhere between sinkholes and citrus canker, everything you do gets examined for its political implications. Had Scott proposed another year of belt-tightening, his critics would have accused him of solidifying his conservative base rather than reaching out to voters who might be persuadable. By proposing $4 billion in new spending, Scott is suspected of trying to broaden that base by appealing to Florida Families First, the slogan printed on his lectern at the budget news conference. The man who announced his first state budget at a tea party rally in Eustis two years ago then signed the pared-down spending plan a few months later at another big gathering of applauding supporters and school children at The Villages stayed in the Florida Capitol to roll out his new budget blueprint. This time, Scott invited about three dozen educators, ranging from university presidents to classroom teachers to applaud appreciatively. He explained the proposed budget increases two ways. First, he said, the state needs it teachers deserve a $2,500 raise because student achievement has risen. Schools deserve $1.2 billion in added funding if for no reason other than that the workforce Florida needs tomorrow is in the public schools today. Businesses should get a sales-tax exemption on manufacturing equipment, and the corporate income-tax exemption should rise from $50,000 to $75,000 because money employers save will mean more employees who will send it ripping through the economy. Besides, the catchall answer to every question is: Its the right thing to do. Second, Scott spins these budget decisions not as reversals but results. Its not that hes changed his past belief that theres always more to be cut from state spending; its that painful reductions made in 2011 and 2012 coupled with a generally improving economy have produced the first revenue surplus projection in several years. Come to think of it, the Scott story goes, we have that surplus and the improving economy partly because of the austerity budgets he laid out in his first two sessions. So he contends that those arent spending increases, those are targeted investments that will pay dividends for fiscal years to come. Democrats grumbled that Scott was trying to buy his way back into the good graces of working families, even school teachers, by sprinkling the states new revenues among target audiences. But there are plenty of plums in there for conservatives, too. Like 3,647 fewer state job positions, a 3 percent reduction in the government workforce. Like no general pay raises, except for teachers, oh, and $1,200 one-time bonuses for state employees and renewed emphasis on performance-based incentive pay. Like no money for expansion of Medicaid under the new national health care system because Scott wants a lot more information about its ultimate costs. Like making top executives pay the same for health insurance as regular state workers. Like no new taxes or college tuition increases. Then there are the expenditures that you cant really call conservative or liberal but go down well with the voters. Like $75 million for the Florida Forever conservation land-buying program and $60 million for Everglades restoration. Like $75 million for school safety. These things fit well on bumper stickers or into 30second advertisements, which live only in the present. When touting a $1.25 billion increase for schools, theres no need to mention that Scotts first budget cut $1.3 billion from education or that the $398 million more for universities in the next budget makes up for $300 million cut from this fiscal year. Apart from the budget, Scott has cajoled state colleges into offering $10,000 degrees. He abandoned his 2010 campaign promise of an Arizona-style immigration crackdown but continues to press for drug-testing of welfare recipients and state employees, ideas that go down very well with voters who are not federal judges. Scotts 2010 campaign slogan was Lets Get To Work, which is now the name of his reelection finance fund. Florida Families First, the theme of his new budget recommendations, looks like a marketable brand name for 2014.Bill Cotterell is a retired Capitol reporter who worked for United Press International and the Tallahassee Democrat.

Signs of the plants uncertain future had been multiplying through the past year, but the official decision still had the impact of a doctors quiet message to a family that nothing more can be done for their loved one. While halfexpected, the finality of the statement was still something of a shock. Although the four coalfired units will continue operating, the nuclear plant accounts for about half of the workers employed at the Crystal River energy complex. Some workers will still be required to monitor and protect the fuel stored at the nuclear plant, but the majority of those at CR3 will lose jobs once considered among the best in the county. The human impact is devastating, as plant workers who once had a secure job now face the prospect of searching for employment in a slow economy, and many plant employees will have to sell homes as they take employment outside the county and the state. Aside from the human impact, the decision will have a significant financial impact on the county. In addition to the effect of lost paychecks on local businesses and the loss of tax revenue from the plant, our schools will lose students, our nonprofits will lose volunteers, many local businesses will lose employees as plant worker spouses pull up stakes and leave, and there will be more homes for sale in an already soft market. For many years, nuclear plant workers have been involved in the community, contributing time and money to activities as varied as youth sports and cleanup days to food pantries and leadership in United Way, the Chamber of Commerce and nonprofits across the county. But almost four years ago, well-intentioned decisions put into motion a series of events that have played out like a Greek tragedy, with an inexorable tragic conclusion that became more and more obvious as the months passed. The beginning of the end for the plant was the decision to cut out part of the 3 1/2foot-thick concrete containment wall to remove large pieces of plant equipment being replaced as part of a major plant upgrade. This was done as an alternative to removing the equipment through a hatchway already built into the building. The decision seemed reasonable, since it reduced cost and worker radiation exposure. Then the company elected to reduce the project cost by managing the concrete removal rather than contracting it to a company experienced in the process. While it is impossible to know if the concrete containment wall would have cracked during the process regardless of who managed it, with Progress managing the project, the company completely owned the results. Since then, the power company has spent millions on engineering and analysis, but the plant has sat idle. When Duke bought Progress Energy last summer, it cited problems at Crystal River as a reason for booting former Progress CEO Bill Johnson. Since then, Duke has demurred when asked about whether it would repair or retire the plant, but the signals have been ever stronger that it wanted to simply close the plant and get past the problem. As a result, when the decision was announced, it was no real surprise, but the finality had the feel of a death in the family. Closing the plant is a devastating blow to the county a blow delivered by members of the board of an out-of-state company who neither know the employees who will lose jobs nor feel the impact their decision will have on the county. We have advocated and hoped for a different decision. It is now clear this will not happen. As painful as this is for plant workers and local businesses, as a county, it is now time for us to look to the future without the nuclear plant and to deal with this new reality.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Eager to buy time and avoid economic pain, President Barack Obama urged Congress on Tuesday to pass targeted short-term spending cuts and higher taxes as a way to put off sweeping, automatic cuts that would slice deeply into military and domestic programs starting March 1. Obamas appeal came as Congress budget office projected a yearly federal deficit under $1 trillion for the first time in his presidency and as Republicans applied political pressure on the president to submit balanced budgets, pushing fiscal issues back to the forefront in Washington after weeks devoted to immigration and guns. A short-term deficittrimming measure would once again delay the broad and onerous spending cuts that are unpopular with both political parties, underscoring the governments difficulty adopting long-term budget policies. Obama conceded the problem, even though he has previously scoffed at temporary budget reprieves. Lets keep on chipping away at this problem together, as Democrats and Republicans, to give our workers and our businesses the support that they need to thrive in the weeks and months ahead, Obama said in a short statement in the White House briefing room. Illustrating the challenge for the government, the Congressional Budget Office said the government will run a $845 billion deficit this year. Thats down from last years $1.1 trillion but still high enough to require the government to borrow 24 cents of every dollar it spends. The report predicted the deficit would decline to $430 billion by 2015, the lowest since President George W. Bushs last year in office. However, as more baby boomers retire and claim Medicare and Social Security, deficits would move higher and again reach near $1 trillion in the latter portion of the 10-year window. Egypts top cleric worries about IranCAIRO Egypts most prominent Muslim cleric, the sheik of al-Azhar, has warned Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad against interfering in Arab Gulf countries or trying to spread Shiite influence. Ahmadinejad, on a landmark visit to Egypt on Tuesday, received an uneasy reception from Ahmed elTayeb at al-Azhar, the Sunni Muslim worlds foremost Islamic institution. El-Tayeb particularly warned mainly Shiite Iran against interference in Bahrain and said Egypt rejects any spread of Shiism in the Sunni world. Islam split into the two sects after the death of the Prophet Muham med in the 7th century.French may leave Mali in MarchTIMBUKTU, Mali French troops may start pulling out of their antiextremist operation in Mali as early as next month, handing over to a still-developing African force, the French foreign minister said. The potential pending withdrawal, floated by Laurent Fabius in a newspaper interview published Tuesday night, came as forces from France and Chad secured a key bastion in northern Mali, the city of Kidal. France has some 4,000 troops in Mali as of Tuesday, a French military official said. Horseburger firm blames Polish meatDUBLIN The Irish meat company at the center of Europes horseburger scandal Tuesday blamed the contamination of its hamburger patties on the purchase last year of 170 tons of meat imported from Poland. As Ireland struggled to contain the damage to its reputation as Europes top beef exporter, the ABP Food Group shed new light on how burgers made partly of horse ended up on British and Irish supermarket shelves. Irelands biggest beef company said it purchased the Polish meat last year marked as beef from an Irish meat trader, McAdam Food Products.NATION/WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY6, 2013 A11 Board Certified American Osteopathic Board of Ophthalmology and Otorhinolaryngology Board Certified National Board of Examiners for Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons Ward Eye Center 8490 W.

The issue has traditionally divided labor and business. Labor groups have looked askance on bringing in numerous low-wage workers, while thats an outcome businesses have favored. The Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO have been tasked by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York with reaching a deal, within weeks, that Schumer and a bipartisan Senate group on immigration could incorporate into legislation now taking shape, officials say. Both sides appear hopeful, although Schumer and others say the issue scuttled the last attempt at a comprehensive overhaul of immigration law in 2007. The guest worker issue has emerged as a split between the Senate negotiating group and President Barack Obama, who omitted any such program from his immigration proposals, drawing criticism from Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a key negotiator on the Republican side. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama wants to ensure any such program protects workers and is actually based on data-driven workforce demands, rather than political whim. Labor and business leaders met with Obama at the White House on Tuesday in separate sessions to discuss immigration reform and how it fits into the broader economic picture. Officials on both sides of the guest worker negotiations are hopeful of a positive result, partly because all involved agree on the necessity of addressing whats called future flow the influx of migrants to the U.S. thats sure to come whether or not Congress passes an immigration bill. If Congress does act to provide a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country, its just as important to deal with future immigration, advocates say. Otherwise, some time from now the country will once again find itself home to many more illegal immigrants.

at the energy complex. Two of those plants, however, are scheduled to be phased out in the near future. Fixing CR3 could have cost $1.49 billion to $3.43 billion with a timeframe of 31 to 96 months. The project was described as technically feasible, but with significant risks. Plus, it would have had to have been relicensed in 2016 not a certainty, according to Jim Rogers, Duke chairman, president and CEO. We believe the decision to retire the nuclear plant is in the best overall interests of our customers, investors, the state of Florida and our company, Rogers said in a news release. This has been an arduous process of modeling, engineering, analysis and evaluation over many months. The decision was very difficult, but it is the right choice. The Crystal River nuclear plant has been an important part of our generation fleet for three decades, said Alex Glenn, state president of Progress Energy Florida. We are very sensitive to the impact on our employees at the plant and on the Citrus County economy. We are working to place as many employees affected by todays announcement in other positions within the company, and we are committed to working with Citrus County to lessen the effects as much as possible. Progress spokeswoman Suzanne Grant said the company is committed to doing all it can to assist employees. We will work diligently to help redeploy employees to other positions within the company or offer transition benefits, such as severance packages, and career placement services, she said. Grant said the company is working to fill a number of nuclear plant vacancies in the Carolinas. Ultimately, some employees could choose to retire or leave the company; others will be placed in new positions within the utility or the company, she said. In addition to job loss, retiring the plant will affect county tax revenues. In a recent letter to Citrus County political leaders, Glenn stated, If the company were to retire CR3, however, this could result in a further reduction to the taxable value of our assets in Citrus County, and a possible reduction of tax payments by an additional $6 million to $9 million.Electric bills impact uncertainProgress customers will be directly affected, though not immediately with the total future impact on monthly electric bills uncertain. Duke and Nuclear Electric Insurance Limited (NEIL) have resolved the companys claims through mediation. NEIL will pay an additional $530 million along with $305 million it has already paid. Progress customers will eventually benefit from $835 million in insurance proceeds. This will be the largest claim payout in the history of NEIL. The monies we receive will go directly to customers to reduce their electric bills, Rogers said. However, according to a Feb. 5 filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Duke listed the recovery of $1.645 billion it has invested in the plant as one of the financial implications of its decision to retire it. Putting it perspective, Grant explained, There is no impact on todays customers bills. Customers will receive the $835 million in total insurance proceeds, as well as approximately $388 million through 2016 from the 2012 settlement, she said. These benefits will help lower customers future bills. She said the settlement agreement (in the event of a retirement decision) also states the companys investment in the nuclear plant will not go into customer base rates until 2017. Ultimately the allocation of all costs for customers and the company/shareholders will be determined in the future by Florida regulators. CR3 has been part of the monthly nuclear cost recovery charges. An average household pays about $4.73 a month. It covers costs associated with the proposed Levy County nuclear plant and the CR3 uprate project. Recovery costs associated with CR3 are not connected with the plants repairs, instead they relate to costs incurred planning for increased capacity through major plant modifications. That charge will continue. Alternatives include gas plantDuke announced it is reviewing alternatives to replace the power produced by CR3, including the potential construction of a new, natural gas-fueled plant. The company is evaluating a number of potential sites for new plant capacity that may be needed in the future to meet Florida customer needs, including sites in Citrus County. We have not made a final decision on new plants or potential sites, Grant said. We are also continuing to keep nuclear generation viable for the future by pursuing the license for the Levy County nuclear project. Citrus County Commission Chairman Joe Meek hoped Citrus will be the site for the natural gas plant. While we are disappointed in the decision to retire the Crystal River nuclear plant, we are committed to continuing to work with Progress Energy and Duke Energy as we go forward, particularly as they explore their options for finding alternatives and building a gas plant, Meek said. We want that plant to be built in Citrus County. We have discussed that and talked about that with them now for numerous months. We will continue to work with them and advocate for that. We have met with them numerous times and we have been in discussions.Decommissioning well into futureAs for the future of the nuclear plant site, we are working to develop a comprehensive decommissioning plan, Grant said. The plan will determine our resource needs, as well as the scope, schedule and other elements of the decommissioning. We intend to use the SAFSTOR option for decommissioning. Generally, this involves placing the facility into a safe storage configuration, requiring limited staffing to monitor plant conditions, until the eventual dismantling and decontamination activities occur, usually in 40 to 60 years. Additional specifics about the decommissioning plan are being developed and will be provided in the future. Utilities with nuclear plants are required to put aside money for eventual decommissioning. Duke currently has approximately $621 million in this fund, which it expects to be sufficient to cover its costs. However, in 2011 Progress Energy estimated it would cost approximately $1.078 billion to decommission the plant in a process that could take up to 60 years. Duke Energy is also pursuing a licensed independent spentfuel storage installation (ISFSI) for that site. This would facilitate dry-cask storage of spent nuclear fuel once removed from the cooling pools. We have to first build the facility, and the NRC has to witness successful dry runs of moving the fuel before we would apply for what is called a general license, Progress Energy Florida spokesman Sterling Ivy said. The containment repair project team is located in temporary buildings where ISFSI would be built. The facility is being planned to store spent nuclear fuel from CR3 only. We do not have plans to move fuel from our other nuclear plants, Duke spokeswoman Rita Sipe said. These plants all have used fuel storage facilities. The company has not announced specifics on the future of site itself or the nuclear plant training facility near the airport in Crystal River. We are working on detailed plans for the nuclear plant and related facilities and will share that information as it becomes available, Grant said.

SHUTDOWNContinued from Page A1A12WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY6, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE CINDY CONNOLLY/Chronicle graphic Greene: Too soon to say value with no nuke plant MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Property Appraiser Geoff Greene said its too soon to learn the tax impact of Duke Energys announcement Tuesday that it is retiring the nuclear power plant north of Crystal River. Greene said a team of experts conducting an appraisal of the companys energy complex will have its report by mid-May, about the same time Progress Energy Florida submits its tax return. Progress, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, has already placed local officials on notice that any decision to retire the nuclear plant would reduce its 2013 property tax payment $6 million to $9 million. The company is suing Greene over his 2012 assessment of the energy complex, particularly pollution-control equipment installed for the coal plants. The lawsuit also disputes Greenes $620 million taxable value on the nuclear portion of the complex. Last year, Greene told the ChronicleEditorial Board that retiring the nuclear plant would cost the county $12 million or $13 million in revenue. Greene said Tuesday he based those estimates on the companys 2012 value. Those numbers are likely to change this year, he said. Until we know the additions made, theres no way to come up with a value, he said. Its not that simple to pull a number out of a hat.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. National hold on nuke licenses will not affect Levy plant PATFAHERTY Staff writerA national hold on licensing nuclear reactors is not expected to affect the proposed power plant in Levy County. With no permanent place to store spent fuel, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has suspended decisions on issuing new or renewal licenses for nuclear reactors. The policy affects the Levy County nuclear plant, the Crystal River nuclear plant and 21 other licensing actions, according to the NRC. The action follows a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals against the practice of storing spent fuel at reactor sites for extended periods of time the practice of waste confidence in lieu of having a permanent nuclear waste facility. As a result NRC is developing a new waste confidence rule and environmental impact provisions. On Jan. 17, the agency announced no final licensing decisions for reactors, including license renewal, will be made by the commission until the waste confidence rule is completed. NRCs waste confidence environmental impact statement and rule are expected by September 2014. Levy will have to consider whatever environmental processes are adopted, NRC public affairs officer Roger Hannah said. He was not sure what it would mean for the Crystal River nuclear plant, which had been pursuing a general license to permit dry storage of its nuclear waste, but is now scheduled to be retired. While new or renewal licenses will not be issued until the spent fuel issue is resolved, the NRC is continuing to work on license review and applications. Progress Energy Florida spokesperson Sterling Ivy said this is not expected to alter the overall project timeline for commercial operation of Levy Unit 1 by 2024. The second unit is scheduled to follow 18 months later. The company anticipates a total estimated project cost of between $19 billion and $24 billion. We are moving forward with licensing work in parallel as the NRC completes the Waste Confidence and Seismic Analysis, Ivy said. As a matter of fact, the NRC has already said they plan to hold Levys mandatory hearing, which demonstrates the project moving forward before Waste Confidence is completed. Until we know the additions made, theres no way to come up with a value.Geoff GreeneCitrus County property appraiser.

The No. 3-seeded Leopards built an insurmountable 23point halftime lead on the back of six 3-pointers and strong rebounding en route to advancing with a 77-40 victory against the sixth-seeded Pirates. For Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman, it was the culmination of a frustrating homestretch, which saw the Pirates (11-13 overall) drop three straight after boasting an 11-10 record following a road win against The Villages in late January. These last 10 days put a damper on what had really been a turnaround for us this season, said Feldman, whose team lost 70-65 to the Leopards in January after falling by 16 to them in December. We lost our ability to clamp down on teams, no matter who the opponent. Hernando shot the ball awfully good, but our defense was almost nonexistent. We didnt contest a lot of those shots like we should. Once they delivered a couple of punches to us early, we had no answer, and thats not the way you want to remember this past season. Pirates junior Ty Reynolds had 23 points. Sophomore Sam Franklin scored 13 while blocking four shots and collecting 10 boards and two steals for Crystal River. Knowing his team isnt built to compete in 70to 80-point contests, Feldman grew concerned when Hernando had a 22-14 lead late in the first quarter. He lamented the lack of production behind Reynolds and Franklin. Leopards end Pirates postseason with win Hernando hustles past Crystal River for 77-40 victory in district tourney C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO A ninepoint run to start the third quarter and a seven-point run to begin the fourth were more than enough to boost St. John Lutheran past host Seven Rivers Christian, 60-46, in the District 2A-4 boys basketball semifinal Tuesday. St. John pulled away from a 21-18 halftime lead to score 39 points in the final two quarters, outscoring Seven Rivers by 11. The difference? No single player was carrying the load for the Saints; four of them scored in double figures, while a fifth netted eight. Seven Rivers, in contrast, had two in double figures, with Adam Gage leading all scorers with 25 points. It goes back to the first half, St. John coach Tony Fisher said. Psychologically, when youre leading at the half, if you can maintain that momentum it will carry you through. I thought we played a little looser in the second half. It came down to who would execute best. And execute the Saints did. Although they had seven third-quarter turnovers and eight more in the fourth, they managed to force 13 secondhalf turnovers by the Warriors. What Seven Rivers (1111 overall) could not do as effectively was shoot the ball. St. John (15-9 overall record) converted on 6 of 8 shots from the floor in the third quarter and hit 4 of 7 in the fourth. Combined with 11-of-13 shooting from the free-throw line in the fourth, St. John was very difficult to catch. We just didnt execute offensively, Seven Rivers coach Jim Ervin said. We didnt do a very good job on the boards and we didnt take care of the ball. Warriors whipped St. John beats Seven Rivers 60-46 at tournament Unranked Arkansas deflates Florida Associated PressFAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Arkansas finally gave second-year coach Mike Anderson the signature win he had been looking for. BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as the Razorbacks opened quickly and never let up in a shocking 8069 victory over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night. The win improves the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps a 10-game winning streak for the Gators who had ascended to the No. 2 spot in The AP Top 25 one day earlier. Arkansas opened the game 15 of 20 from the field. Michael Qualls and Marshawn Powell added 11 points each and all 11 players scored for the Razorbacks in their first win over a top 10 team since early in 2008-09. Mike Rosario led Florida (18-3, 8-1) with 15 points, while Scottie Wilbekin had 14. After trailing by as many as 23 points in the first half, the Gators cut the lead to 43-26 at halftime. The Razorbacks didnt give Florida a chance to come up for air to open the second half, forcing turnovers on two straight possessions to open the second half and extending the lead 49-26 following a jumper by Qualls. Florida had one final run in it responding with an 11-2 stretch to cut the deficit to 51-37 after an inside basket by Michael Frazier. The Gators did close the lead to 11 points, but by then it was too late against an Arkansas team in desperate need of a signature win, one that hasnt reached the NCAA tournament since 2008. The Razorbacks were then coached by current Florida assistant coach John Pelphrey, who entered Bud Walton Arena to handshakes and hugs Tuesday night before walking off the court with a stunning loss in his second return to his former home.

From staff reports DOUGFERGUSON AP golf writerPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. These should be happy times for golf. Tiger Woods won for the 75th time on the PGA Tour and set a record with his eighth win at Torrey Pines. It was a command performance, the kind that made people think more about where he is going than where he went. The next week, Phil Mickelson had a chance at 59 until his 25foot birdie putt on the last hole took a cruel spin around the cup. He thought he had golfs magic number and instead shot his tax rate in California. Lefty still sailed to a wire-to-wire win in the Phoenix Open. It was the first time since 2009 that golfs two biggest stars won in consecutive weeks. The trouble is, any discussion about golf these days goes beyond birdies and bogeys. Now it includes bifurcation. And the day after the buzz was about Tiger, the focus shifted to deer antlers. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem might have seen this coming when he said two weeks ago while he views the professional game as being the strongest it has ever been, I dont like to see distractions. There are too many of them right now. Vijay Singh was leaving the practice range at Pebble Beach on Tuesday when one of the few reporters who has a working relationship with the Fijian called out to him. Singh looked at him, said nothing, and kept walking. So that would be no comment? the reporter said. Yes, Singh replied. Sports Illustrated reported Singh paid $9,000 to Sports With Alternative to Steroids in November for products including deer-antler spray, which is said to have an insulin-like growth factor, which is on the PGA Tours list of prohibited substances. Singh told the magazine he uses the spray every couple of hours ... every day. Singh might have been better off keeping quiet, as he often does. But he issued a statement confirming he used the spray, but was unaware it had a banned substance. I am absolutely shocked that deer-antler spray may contain a banned substance and am angry that I have put myself in this position, he said. I have been in contact with the PGA Tour and am cooperating fully with their review of this matter. The tour will not comment except to say it is looking into the matter, though it is backed into a corner. Singhs admission alone constitutes an anti-doping violation. The first violation is up to a oneyear suspension. The tour has a minimum requirement to publish the name of the player, his antidoping violation and the sanction. As long as Singh is in the field, that means the tour has not suspended him. He is playing this week. For now. Thats not the kind of distraction Finchem was talking about, but its a big one. The only other player suspended under the antidoping policy was Doug Barron, the consummate journeyman. Singh is a three-time major champion who was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2006. He hasnt won in more than four years, and he had made it to the Tour Championship only once since 2008. The distraction to which Finchem referred was about the proposed rule that would ban anchored strokes the kind used with long putters and belly putters. It already was a mess because three of the last five major champions used a belly putter, and because the rule would not go into effect until 2016. But its the debate over this proposed rule that has given some corners reason to bring up bifurcation two sets of rules. PGA of America president Ted Bishop polled his 27,000 members on anchoring. More than 15 percent of them responded, and he said 63 percent opposed the ban. The USGA and Royal & Ancient write the Rules of Golf. Bishop noted the PGA Tour didnt exist when the USGA was founded in 1894, and the tour has a powerful impact on the game. He suggested golf was at a point where two sets of rules should be considered as a potential solution. The CEO of TaylorMade suggested the USGA was obsolete and the PGA of America, in conjunction with the PGA Tour, should set the rules. Maybe he forgot the PGA Tour broke away from the PGA of America in 1968 because of the disconnect between tour pros and club pros. Finchem said he thought there were certain parts of the rules that could be bifurcated and it wouldnt hurt anything, though maybe not in the case of anchoring. Where will it all lead? Finchem said the tours objective was to keep the rules together. Bishop said in an ideal world, golf would be played under one set of rules. Debate is healthy as long as its about golfs best interest and not financial interests. Dont get the idea golf isnt growing because the game is too hard. Thats one of its greatest appeals. The challenge was constant. And it never stopped being a challenge, Arnold Palmer once said. That was one of the things that really excited me as a kid. USGA president Glen Nager got to the heart of the bifurcation bluster during his speech at the USGAs annual meeting over the weekend in San Diego. There certainly are important issues for the golf industry to address, including economic issues, but revenue concerns arising during a broad economic slowdown should not lead us fundamentally to alter our approach to writing the rules and defining the game, Nager said. It is our obligation as a governing body to keep our eye on the long-term good of the game and to hold firm to what we know to be true about the essence of golf. In the meantime, Mickelson goes for his fifth win at Pebble Beach this week. All the stars get together for the first time in two weeks at the Match Play Championship. Buzz in golf not all good Game surrounded by distractions of Singh, bifurcation Associated PressVijay Singh looks on before teeing off on the 10th hole of the north course at the Torrey Pines Golf Course during the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open on Jan. 24 in San Diego. I am absolutely shocked that deer-antler spray may contain a banned substance and am angry that I have put myself in this position.Vijay Singh

Despite the overall improvement, the 300 game remains an elusive goal for most bowlers. Citrus County has more than just a few families where a husband and wife, father and son or other combinations of family members have reached that goal. How about a family with five members across three generations who have thrown seven 300 games, two 11-in-a-row games and two 800 series? It must be in the genes! It all started when dad Aaron Fugere rolled the first 800 series at Parkview Lanes in January 1995 followed by a 300 game two months later. Next in the family was Grandma Judy Timmons with her 298 11in-a-row game in February 1998 and 300 game in September 1999 at Manatee Lanes. Judy has been a league secretary in Ohio and Florida for more than 20 years. In March 2011, Sean Fugere, Judys grandson, bowled the first of his three perfect games. Three months later, Judys daughter and Seans mother, Dorine Fugere bowled her own 300 game. Sean bowled his second perfect score in July 2012. Four months later, Seans sister Stephanie Flory, threw her 300 game with brother Sean rolling a triplicate 278 for a 834 series in December 2012 and another 300 game in January 2013. Bowling seems to come naturally to this family and the tradition starts early. Sean, for instance, began his bowling career at 5 years old when he had to use both hands to bowl. Though not unusual at that age, Sean continues to throw the ball with two hands and is one of a very small percentage of bowlers with the two-handed style made famous by the Australian professional bowler Jason Belmonte. It must be working for him, because he carries a 229 average. His mother, Dorine, started early in youth bowling leagues. Besides her 300 game, Dorine recalls her most memorable bowling moment at the age of 13; she bowled with Hall of Fame bowler Earl Anthony in a ProAm tournament in Toledo, Ohio. All in all, it is a pretty remarkable achievement for this Citrus County family.

Lecantos No. 1 doubles team of Rishi Gurnani and Dhrav Patel won the first set 6-2, but was unable to keep Hurricanes Kyle Everett and Grey Prospiech from coming back in the second set. Everett and Prospiech won the second match 6-3 before bringing it home for a 6-4 win in the third set. Prior to the finish of that match, Citrus No. 2 doubles team of Michael Hetland and Brady Hayes defeated Lecantos Lloyd Justo and Dale Eastmond in two sets 6-3, 6-3. They were (nearly) shut out in singles play, Citrus head coach James Martone said of his team. We were down a set and to come back and battle like that in the first match of the year is good for the seniors to know that they can come back from that. The No. 1-seed match between Lecantos Gurnani and Citrus Everett went to Gurnani, who took it 6-0, 6-1. Lecantos Justo won the No. 2-seed match in three sets 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 over Prospiech. Citrus came back in the No. 3-seed match as Hetland forced the action to three sets, winning 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 over Eastmond. The Panthers took the No. 4 match when Patel defeated Hayes in two sets 6-4, 6-4, while the Canes fired back in the No. 5 match as Joe Kelly decisively beat Michael King 6-0, 6-1. Both county teams were facing each other for the first time this season in each teams opener. It was a good opening match, but when we play Lecanto it is always a close match and its been that way for years, Martone said. I had no reason to expect any different. Lecanto head coach Jack Hall echoed those comments Great first match, he said. Tennis is alive and well (in Citrus County) and both teams are really solid top to bottom, and thats really good to see. part, we lack experience and will begin the learning curve on the fly as our first match is February 11 vs. Oak Hall. The graduation of last seasons No. 1 seed and All-Chronicleteam member Brandon Papp leaves room at the top for some key returnees to fill the spot he left behind. But with last years No. 2 seed, senior Travis Swanson, unable to play because of a shoulder injury sustained during the soccer season, Reyes is leaning heavily on his new recruits and the depth of his returning players to start the season on the right foot. (With these) underclassmen, the future of Pirate tennis is bright, the coach said. Over the past two seasons, we have been a .500 (average) team. But in each of those seasons, we have made it to regionals and that is the goal again this year. Sophomore Matt Allen and junior Ryan Johnson return after spending much of past season seeded Nos. 3 and 5, respectively. Junior Devin Reed comes in ranked as the alternate No. 1 seed for the Pirates as Swanson recovers. Key newcomers for Crystal River include: Ben Epstein, freshman; Matt White, sophomore; Eddie Castelli, freshman; Allen Ivory, freshman; Dylan Palmer, freshman; and Justin Allen, sophomore.Citrus Hurricanes Citrus head coach James Martone takes over the program from last years head coach David Assumpcao. The Hurricanes return last years No. 1 seed, senior Kyle Everett. Everett will maintain his spot and looks to become a threat in doubles with Grey Prospiech. Citrus will need some veterans to step up and replace last years No. 4 seed Tyler McIntosh. Everett and McIntosh were members of the All-Chronicleteam last year, and McIntosh finished his District 3A post season as runner-up in the No. 4 seed competition the best individual place of any local boys tennis player. My top four is solid, Martone said. We have a lot of leadership with (our) four seniors. We had some key losses this year with the graduation of Guy Harris and McIntosh not being able to return. Two key returnees include seniors Prospiech and Michael Hetland, with newcomer senior Brady Hayes and Joe Kelly rounding out the top five contested scoring spots. Lecanto PanthersThe Lecanto Panthers see the majority of last years core returning. Last years No. 1 seed junior Rishi Gurnani returns aimings to duplicate the results that earned him a ChroniclePlayer of the Year distinction last season. However, the team must deal with losing key player Zach Alford to graduation. We only lost Zach, so weve retained most of our lineup, which should keep us solid one through four, Lecanto head coach Jack Hall said. Gainesville will be the favorite to win districts this year. I believe theyve only lost their No. 5, which should make them the (odds-on) favorite. Key returning players for the Panthers include senior Lloyd Justo and Dale Eastmond in the No. 2 and 3 seed positions. Both players move up from the No. 4 and 5 seeds they held last season. Panther newcomers Dhrav Patel and Michael King round out the top five scoring spots for Lecanto at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively. We were playing against an extremely talented team, and obviously the size difference was hard to overcome. The Saints had three players measuring 6-foot-4 or better, while Seven Rivers had one. That size advantage didnt just help on the boards, it allowed St. John to penetrate the Warriors defense and get good shots inside. St. Johns 9-0 run to start the second half featured four players scoring. Five of the points in the 7-0 rally to begin the fourth were netted by Harrison Bucy, who finished with 13. Ill bet our starting five were all in or around double figures in scoring, Fisher said. Our goal is to share the basketball, and if we get to 55 (points) well win. Joining Bucy in double-figure scoring were Glen Owen with 15, eight of those coming in the third quarter. Jordan Bates knocked down 14 points and Cole Whitlock scored 10, with Jordan Smith just missing with eight. Gage once again had a phenomenal game for the Warriors, collecting nine rebounds and five assists to go with his 25 points. Corey Weiand totaled 14 points. Next up for St. John is the winner of Tuesdays Meadowbrook Academy/First Academy of Leesburg game. The 2A-4 final will be at 7 p.m. Friday.

B4WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY6, 2013 STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleSeven Rivers junior Adam Gage comes in hard for two points with St. Johns players Jordan Bates, Cole Whitlock and Jordan Smith defending Tuesday in the district tournament at Seven Rivers Christian School. If you looked at our stat sheet, the only guys in any of the columns at all were basically Ty (Reynolds) and Sam (Franklin), Feldman said. We challenged the others at halftime to step up and be a player, even if you make mistakes. Hernando (18-7) enjoyed the return of sophomore guard Mark Wilson, who led the game with 24 points behind four nothingbut-net 3s in his first complete game since missing six weeks with a broken collarbone. Wilson is probably our best complete player, and he helps hold everything together, said head coach Mark Latsko, whose Leopards had their first winning season since 2004. We kind of limped through January without him, but we become a true three seed with him. Were a team thats not afraid to shoot 3s, and when theyre falling were pretty good. I thought we did a good job of (containing) Sam Franklin, and our post presence did a good job rebounding, Latsko continued. When we played Crystal River in January, Sam killed us on the boards. Senior guard Jeffrey Velasquez added 15 points for Hernando, and Leopards junior Dylan Bailey grabbed 10 rebounds. Hernando faces No. 2 seed and tournament host Eustis at 7:30 p.m. today. PIRATESContinued from Page B1 LARRYBUGG CorrespondentINVERNESS It was 1-1 in the bottom of the second inning when the lights went out. Twenty-one minutes later, they came back on. After the break, Ocala Forest lit up the softball scoreboard Tuesday night at Vicki Overman Field. Forest ruined the Citrus Hurricanes opening game with eight runs in the fifth inning and five more in the sixth inning. They won 14-3 in six innings on a mercy rule. Forest freshman pitcher Morgan White struck out eight Canes batters, allowing just four hits to take the victory. Citrus starting pitcher Kelly Abramowich took the loss. She had two of Citruss hits. The game started out as a pitchers duel. Citruss April DeSomma reached after being pelted in the first inning and later scored on a wild pitch. DeSomma also scored another run in the fifth inning. Amy Abramowich reached when White hit her with a pitch. Abramowich scored on a throwing error. DeSomma reached on a fielders choice and scored on Kelly Abramowichs single. But Forest exploded for eight runs on six hits and three errors in the fifth inning. They added five runs on three hits and two errors in the sixth. This wasnt the debut Citrus hoped for. I think they just figured me out and started getting hits, Kelly Abramowich said. She (White) had a really good screwball. She was pretty good. We didnt start out the way we wanted to. We play Wildwood Thursday and we hope to bring it. The Citrus coach knew his team had to avoid defensive miscues. We played a solid four and a half innings, and all of a sudden, we made a mistake, Citrus coach Larry Bishop said. We made a bad throw from the outfield. The floodgates opened up. It seemed like once we made a mistake, others were making mistakes. Those things bother you. Its early in the season and we can minimize those. Thats a good-hitting ballclub. Being a freshman, she (White) threw the ball super hard and had a nasty screwball. We have problems with the screwball, Bishop said. We are aggressive. We had some mistakes in the field that we have to work on. Citrus will travel to Wildwood High School for a 6 p.m. first pitch Thursday. After blackout, a blowout for Canes Citrus softball loses to Ocala Forest 14-3

Pesci settles dispute over mobster biopicLOS ANGELES Joe Pesci has settled a lawsuit filed against a company planning a biopic on the Gotti crime family. The Oscarwinner sued Fiore Films in July 2011 claiming the filmmakers reneged on a deal for a $3 million role in the film and were offering him a lesser part in the project and a lower payday. Pescis attorney Jessica Trotter confirmed Monday a settlement had been reached in the case but said she could not provide any details. Michael Froch, an attorney for Fiore Films, said he could only confirm the case had been dismissed. The film, Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father, has not started filming.McGraw: Im growing up a little bit, I guessNASHVILLE, Tenn. Tim McGraw is free. The country star has moved on from a troubling label, quit drinking and grown up a bit, and all that has given McGraw a new energy he says you can hear on his latest album, Two Lanes of Freedom. The release of the record also neatly bookmarks a new period of growth for McGraw personally. While struggling professionally, he was also reshaping his life away from the spotlight where he and wife Faith Hill juggle two superstar careers while raising three daughters. He quit drinking and started putting things right. (Im) growing up a little bit, I guess, is what Im trying to say more than anything overall, McGraw said. He recalled a recent conversation with Hill in which he said something somewhat mature. She looked at me and said, Well, I think youve finally hit 16. So I think thats been good for our marriage. Ill take 16.Prosecutors: Revoke Browns probationLOS ANGELES Prosecutors have asked a judge to revoke Chris Browns probation, saying there is no credible evidence he completed his community service sentence for beating Rihanna, and citing several incidents they say point to anger management issues.

Associated Press BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. The producers of the Academy Awards have good news for those watching at home: Theyre trying to cut out the boring parts. Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron say they watched 40 years of past ceremonies to finds ways to keep the show moving at a brisk pace. They say they are looking to nip and tuck unnecessary moments that can turn the show into a marathon. At an annual lunch honoring Oscar nominees, Zadan and Meron said they identified time-consuming segments that might run only 15 or 30 seconds but which collectively can bog down the show. In some years, the Oscars have run to a ponderous four hours or more. Zadan and Meron said they have moments planned that should appeal to all ages and interests, including performances by Adele, Norah Jones and Barbra Streisand and a tribute to the James Bond franchise. They also are working closely with Oscar host Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy and last summers comedy hit Ted who is known for edgy, pottymouthed humor. The producers said theyre not worried that they will need an emergency switch to censor MacFarlane. Theres no oversized red button to bleep the broadcast, Meron said. Seth is Seth, and we love him. Among those attending the Oscar lunch were Denzel Washington, Sally Field, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. About 160 nominees attended the lunch, an annual rite leading up to Hollywoods big night. The 85th annual Oscars air Feb. 24 on ABC. Hathaway, a supportingactress nominee for the musical Les Miserables, said she hasnt given any thought yet to what shell wear on Oscar night. Yeah, I need to get on that, dont I? Hathaway said. It was the Super Bowl. I couldnt think about dresses with all that delicious fried food around. If the Oscar producers really want to keep the show moving, they might seek advice from De Niro. Meeting with reporters, two-time winner De Niro was asked how big a deal the Oscars are to him now. Notoriously terse, he lived up to his reputation with a five-word answer. Its still a big deal, he said. Birthday Exciting times could be in the making during coming months, involving new places, faces, sights and sounds.

Corporate kittydom is happy with the higher profile for the cat meme, which actually goes back to the s, when swapping VHS tapes was big and the word meme was barely known. It means, by the way, all the crazy, viral themes that spread online faster than you can say nom, nom, nom (catvid speak for the sound of a cat eating.)

Cats are going to do what they want to do and thats one of the reasons that we love them, said David Kargas, a Fresh Step spokesman. The gravy train for cat vid makers is a long one not likely to deadend any time soon. Consider the ad revenue from YouTube and other websites. But while commercial ads are often included on the sites, so are fans looking to help cats in need.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Goodbye candy bars and sugary cookies. Hello baked chips and diet sodas. The government for the first time is proposing broad new standards to make sure all foods sold in schools are more healthful, a change that would ban the sale of almost all candy, high-calorie sports drinks and greasy foods on campus. Under new rules the Department of Agriculture proposed Friday, school vending machines would start selling water, lower-calorie sports drinks, diet sodas and baked chips instead. Lunchrooms selling fatty a la carte items like mozzarella sticks and nachos would have to switch to healthier pizzas, low-fat hamburgers, fruit cups and yogurt. The rules, required under a child nutrition law passed by Congress in 2010, are part of the governments effort to combat childhood obesity. While many schools already have made improvements in their lunch menus and vending machine choices, others still are selling high-fat, high-calorie foods. Under the proposal, the Agriculture Department would set fat, calorie, sugar and Looking For A New Friend?Shop our Pets column in the Classified Section.794601 Denise WillisGUEST COLUMN Technical education adds economic stability February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) month. Throughout the nation, students are bringing attention to the value CTE adds to the economic stability of a community. For many students, the programs have provided a new lease on life. Students who were dismissed from jobs because of the economic downturn and have enrolled in CTE programs, now have the skills to embark on new careers. Members of Congress are hearing these stories and others as students from across the country visit Capitol Hill. The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) has provided some interesting information regarding the value of CTE programs. For example, for many high school students, CTE has brought relevance to their academic studies. One only need look at the success of STEM academies to see how students are using high-level math skills to design and build robots. In a recent report to Congress on the value of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, it was stated more than 12 million students participated in secondary and postsecondary CTE programs during the 2010-11 school year. Research from the Southern Regional Education Board shows at schools where highly rigorous academic subjects were integrated with CTE programs, students have significantly higher achievement in reading, mathematics and science than students at schools with less integrated programs. CTE students are more likely to develop problem solving skills, timemanagement skills, critical-thinking skills and communication skills to a higher degree than non CTE students.

Fowler knew she wanted to work with animals. So she began volunteering at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and did so until four years ago, when she was hired as a park ranger. I knew I wanted to work with animals, but I had no idea how to get there, Fowler said. That wont be the case for CRMS eighth-graders, thanks to the work of consumer science teacher Sherri Albon. About 300 eighth-graders visited with representatives of 20 companies or organizations Friday during the schools third Career Day. Albon said Career Day is part of a comprehensive plan to place students in line for career opportunities even before they reach high school. Were trying to prepare them for 21st century global competition, Albon said. They dont know whats available out there. Careers participating Friday included the Navy, wildlife rescue, attorney, teacher, crime-scene detective and photojournalist. Students had in hand their top three career choices. Groups spent 10 or 15 minutes at each career table and then moved to the next choice. At the Navy table, Lt. Todd Dunn and Seaman Hunter Morrison told students the Navy offers a host of career opportunities. Every job you can think of, he said. Dunn said students look for the glamorous careers. A lot of guys say they want to be a SEAL, he said. I tell them that takes mental challenges as well as physical challenges. Jobs No. 1 at CRMS Career Day MIKE WRIGHT /ChronicleRetired Navy Lt.

Most people give directions with streets and numbers. Conrad Farnsworth gives GPS coordinates and satellite imaging maps. Hell greet you in his driveway in his white lab coat, offering you a pair of safety goggles. At least thats how he greeted me. On Jan. 17, Conrad wore an Angry Nerds T-shirt under his lab coat. Think Angry Birds, but with pocket protectors. We walked together to his dads metal shed, big enough to hold the truck his dad is restoring and Conrads machine, the one Ive driven to his house to see. Its the old next to the new a 1972 Chevy next to a nuclear fusion reactor. The reactor is a maze of steel, cable, tubes and boxes. Cords wrap around several shelves and stretch to a nearby table. When he plugs it in, it gurgles and groans. This is my Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Fusion Reactor. It works on the property of inertial electrostatic confinement, Conrad said. Conrad, 18, talks fast faster when hes explaining this machine, a project he started at 16. Its plasma heart rises to a temperature of 600 million degrees. It glows bright blue and purple. It strips gas out of its outer electron shell. Dont worry if it makes no sense. Many science fair judges dont get it either.Science nerdConrad is the first person in Wyoming, and one of about 60 in the world, to achieve nuclear fusion. Only about 15 of those are in high school. Conrad is a selfprofessed nerd. Hes not shy, doesnt stutter and isnt prone to tripping over his feet. He doesnt act like hes smarter than you, though he likely is. He just really likes science. At 3, he took apart his moms sofa recliner. At 17, he started his own iPhone repair business. Hes not afraid to make mistakes, blow something up or start something on fire. I dont think Ive taught another student who individually made science seem as cool as Conrad has, said Sharla Dowding, his Newcastle High School science teacher. Friends tease him about his exploits. They expect the fire alarm to go off one day and discover Conrad is the source of the explosion. Classmates in his high school English class nominated him as one of the most interesting stories in Newcastle.Fires, explosionsWhen he was 3, Conrad found a screwdriver in a junk pile. He used it to disassemble his mothers sofa recliner in the time it took her to take a shower. He removed every screw, hinge and spring and spread them across the floor. He would always be on excursions, Jamie Farnsworth said. He was always making something or inventing something. Sometimes his inventions worked. Sometimes they didnt.

A person with a CTErelated post-secondary credential will earn an average of $4,000 more a year than a person with a humanities degree, and those students with postsecondary credentials in a high demand field such as health care, can earn as much as $20,000 more a year. There is another component to CTE programs that is not talked about enough. That is the student organizations that work hand-inhand with the CTE program. Organizations such as the FFA, Skills USA and the Future Business Leaders of America provide excellent opportunities for students to develop leadership skills that are necessary in todays workplace. These student organizations prepare young people to become productive citizens and leaders in their communities. These student organizations provide a motivation factor in student learning that pays great dividends in the workplace. In future articles I will present more information about the CTE student organizations. Denise Willis is the director of Withlacoochee Technical Institute. WILLISContinued from Page C1 CAREERSContinued from Page C1 At 6, he started a fire at his grandparents house when he put a remote control wire antennae into a wall socket. The blaze blackened a wall. He blew up bottles and made root beer. Twice, he tried raising fish. A hose came loose on his first attempt and syphoned all 55 gallons of water onto the floor. On the second, a 45gallon trash can full of sea water tipped over. At 13, Conrad put a bomb made of hydrochloric acid and aluminum foil into a garbage can, to see how long it took to react. After several minutes, nothing happened. He lifted the lid and the bomb exploded. His parents used to understand his projects. Now, their eyes glaze over as he talks about alpha particles, boron tin tubes and decaying tritium.Teenage fusioneerConrads real coup is the fusion reactor. He stumbled onto the idea in seventh grade. Fusion sounded fascinating, and the father of fusion, Philo T. Farnsworth, shared his last name. But he didnt think nuclear fusion was for middle schoolers. At 13, he pigeonholed the project. Fusion is the smashing of nuclei. If harnessed, it has the potential for clean, incredible power. But, to date, no one has created fusion that produces more energy than it consumes. Fusion doesnt require uranium or produce radioactive byproducts like fission does, and its legal for a teenager to make in his dads garage. Members of the international amateur fusion community helped direct Conrad. They answered questions and lent him parts. In return, hes mailed parts to other budding amateurs. A YouTube video he filmed at 10:45 p.m. Dec. 1, 2011, documented the moment he became a teenage fusioneer. Hes in his bathrobe and sounds just a little delirious after several late nights. He explains his accomplishment and shows a machines reading proving it worked. Even if he hadnt shown the evidence, a commenter posted on the video, Conrads enthusiasm was proof enough.

Current standards already regulate the nutritional content of school breakfasts and lunches that are subsidized by the federal government, but most lunch rooms also have a la carte lines that sell other foods. And food sold through vending machines and in other ways outside the lunchroom has not been federally regulated. Parents and teachers work hard to instill healthy eating habits in our kids, and these efforts should be supported when kids walk through the schoolhouse door, said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. Most snacks sold in school would have to have less than 200 calories. Elementary and middle schools could sell only water, low-fat milk or 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice. High schools could sell some sports drinks, diet sodas and iced teas, but the calories would be limited. Drinks would be limited to 12ounce portions in middle schools, and 8-ounce portions in elementary schools. The standards will cover vending machines, the a la carte lunch lines, snack bars and any other foods regularly sold around school. They would not apply to in-school fundraisers or bake sales, though states have the power to regulate them. The new guidelines also would not apply to after-school concessions at school games or theater events, goodies brought from home for classroom celebrations, or anything students bring for their own personal consumption. The new rules are the latest in a long list of changes designed to make foods served in schools more healthful and accessible. Nutritional guidelines for the subsidized lunches were revised last year and put in place last fall. The 2010 child nutrition law also provided more money for schools to serve free and reduced-cost lunches and required more meals to be served to hungry kids. Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, a Democrat, has been working for two decades to take junk foods out of schools. He calls the availability of unhealthful foods around campus a loophole that undermines the taxpayer money that helps pay for the healthier subsidized lunches. USDAs proposed nutrition standards are a critical step in closing that loophole and in ensuring that our schools are places that nurture not just the minds of American children but their bodies as well, Harkin said. Last years rules faced criticism from some conservatives, including some Republicans in Congress, who said the government shouldnt be telling kids what to eat. Mindful of that backlash, the Agriculture Department exempted in-school fundraisers from federal regulation and proposed different options for some parts of the rule, including the calorie limits for drinks in high schools, which would be limited to either 60 calories or 75 calories in a 12ounce portion. The department also has shown a willingness to work with schools to resolve complaints that some new requirements are hard to meet. Last year, for example, the government relaxed some limits on meats and grains in subsidized lunches after school nutritionists said they werent working. Schools, the food industry, interest groups and other critics or supporters of the new proposal will have 60 days to comment and suggest changes. A final rule could be in place as soon as the 2014 school year. Margo Wootan, a nutrition lobbyist for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said surveys done by her organization show that most parents want changes in the lunchroom. Parents arent going to have to worry that kids are using their lunch money to buy candy bars and a Gatorade instead of a healthy school lunch, she said. The food industry has been onboard with many of the changes, and several companies worked with Congress on the child nutrition law two years ago. Major beverage companies have already agreed to take the most caloric sodas out of schools. But those same companies, including Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, also sell many of the non-soda options, like sports drinks, and have lobbied to keep them in vending machines. A spokeswoman for the American Beverage Association, which represents the soda companies, said they already have greatly reduced the number of calories kids are consuming at school by pulling out the highcalorie sodas. STANDARDSContinued from Page C1 Associated PressThe government, for the first time, is proposing broad new standards to make school snacks healthier, a move that would ban the sale of almost all candy, high-calorie sports drinks and greasy foods on campus. Side salads, apple sauce and plums await the students of Eastside Elementary School in Clinton, Miss. CHALKContinued from Page C2 See CHALK/ Page C8 subject to fat, calorie, sugar and sodium limits.

Stay on Your ToesBeautiful Ballet Think of all the different ways there are to tell a story. We can sing a song, such as Itsy Bitsy Spider. An author can relate a tale in a book. Actors can tell a story through a movie or play. This week, The Mini Page leaps into the world of ballet. When it first began, ballet, like many other types of dance, was another way to tell a story. Ballets beginnings The first ballet was believed to have taken place in 1581 more than 400 years ago! At that time, kings and queens kept huge courts of people to serve and entertain them. Court entertainers wore fancy costumes and performed speaking and singing roles, along with dancing and music. The first ballet, the Ballet Comique de la Reine, was performed in Paris during a three-day wedding celebration at the court of Catherine de Medici, the wife of King Henry II of France. The story it told was of the Greek goddess Circe. The ballet lasted more than five hours. Royal influences Ballet de cour or court dance, called for specific movements pointed feet and turned-out legs, for example. These positions would later become the basis for the five basic ballet positions. As ballet became more technical and specific as a dance form, costumes were changed. For example, the enormous wigs and skirts of the time made it difficult for dancers to turn quickly and jump. Skirts became shorter so that legs and feet could be seen by the audience.Ballerinas In the 1700s and 1800s, ballerinas began to dance on pointe up on their toes in special shoes called pointe shoes. Famous ballerinas became known for their special talents jumps, turns or beautiful arms. Europe and Russia Ballet became popular in Italy, France and Russia. In the early 20th century, an arts promoter named Sergei Diaghilev started a ballet company in Paris called the Ballets Russes (roos), or Russian Ballet. Experts say his company changed the way people experienced ballet. During this time, the male dancer became more important to the dance. In addition, great composers began to create music for ballet, and artists such as Picasso began creating sets for the productions. The French King Louis XIV loved dance. In the mid-1600s, he started a dance academy in Paris and often danced in its ballets. Pointe shoes Words that remind us of ballet are hidden in the block below.

The music was written by a Russian composer, Peter Tchaikovsky skee). The story was based on a tale by E.T.A. Hoffmann called The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. It features a little girl, Clara, who is given a nutcracker doll for Christmas. But her brother, Fritz, breaks the doll. into the parlor to find her doll. She finds that some of the toys have come to life, and mice and gingerbread men are having a battle! Claras nutcracker defeats the Mouse King and turns into a prince, Sweets. When Clara wakes up back in her own parlor, she wonders if her adventures were really just a dream. Classical ballets combine music and stories. Several of them have been performed for hundreds of years and are still popular with audiences today. Two examples of classical ballets are: Peter Tchaikovsky Swan Lake. Tchaikovsky also composed the music for this ballet, about a prince who falls in love with a maiden who is under the power of an evil spell. The spell turns her into a swan during the day. The Waltz of the Swans from Swan Lake.photo by Paata Vardanashvili Audiences love the holiday story of The Nutcracker.

Most children start between the ages of 3 and 5 in creative movement and tap dance classes. Around 8 to 10 years old, a ballet student may attend class twice a week. As a student gets to be 13 or 14 years old, he or she must make a more serious commitment to ballet instruction. Classes may be three to six times a week, and students may be expected to practice every day. Some older teenagers go to boarding programs, where they live and study at the ballet school. At 17 or 18 years old, they begin auditioning, or trying out, with ballet companies. Ballet is hard work, but its fun! an expert says. Kids should experience ballet live. Ballet basics Beginning ballet students learn five basic positions. These moves are combined to make many different movements in ballet. But every step begins and ends with one of these positions. The Mini Page thanks Jo Matos, director of Children and Young Dancer Programs, Joffrey Ballet School, New York City, for help with this issue. Next week, The Mini Page is about the Westminster Dog Show. Ballet in the United States In 1934, the School of American City by George Balanchine, a choreographer originally from Russia. (A choreographer is someone who designs a dance for performance.) This and other ballet companies changed this type of dance again, producing new versions of classic ballets and developing new ballets that were centered around a theme ( contemporary ballet) instead of a story (narrative ballet). Music for ballet For narrative ballet, a choreographer and composer work together to create a ballet. For contemporary ballet, a choreographer takes a piece of music and designs a ballet to go along with it. In 1944, composer Aaron Copland wrote a piece of orchestral music called Appalachian Spring for a narrative ballet choreographed by Martha Graham.

Third position: Heel of one foot in front of middle of other foot. One arm curved above you, the other out to the side. Fourth position: One foot crossed in front of the other. Both feet turned out. One arm out in a gentle curve in front of you; the other arm curving above your head. Fifth position: Heel of front foot against toe of back foot. Both feet turned out. Both arms curve over your head. Fingers and shoulders relaxed. Kids might think ballet is boring, but a production such as this one by the Colorado Ballet of Where the Wild Things Are, with the beasts dancing on the stage, captures the imagination of even young children. photo by Tony Shapiro, courtesy Colorado Ballet from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickSupersport: Skylar DigginsHeight: 5-9 Birthdate: 8-2-90 Hometown: South Bend, Ind.

C6WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY6, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Bridge is full of suit combinations that can be played in different ways, depending on the number of tricks needed or the circumstances in a particular deal. Taken in isolation, how should South handle todays heart suit for either five tricks or four? And in the full deal, how should South play in six hearts after West leads the diamond queen? In the auction, Norths three-heart rebid was game-forcing. Souths three spades was a control-bid (cue-bid) indicating a maximum, the spade ace and slam interest if North had a sufficiently strong hand. Four clubs and four diamonds were also control-bids, showing the aces of those suits. To play the heart suit without loss, declarer should cash dummys king before finessing his jack. If South can afford one loser, he should cash his ace, play low to dummys king, and lead back toward his jack. (This would be the right play in six hearts if West had led a spade, not a diamond.) In this deal, though, if South loses an early trump trick, the opponents will cash two diamond winners. The best line of play is to take the heart king and ace immediately. Here, the queen drops and declarer can claim an overtrick. But if the queen remains elusive, South plays on clubs, hoping to discard both of his diamond losers. If hearts are 3-2, declarer needs the defender with the queen to have at least three clubs. If hearts are 4-1 without giving South two unavoidable losers, the key defender must hold at least four clubs.

My brother, Dennis, is four years younger and the first to graduate high school. He went to college and had everything going for him. Now he is throwing it all away. Dennis turned to drugs and has missed important moments in our lives, such as weddings and holidays. He only shows up at my mothers or grandmothers house to take a shower, and then he goes out again. My family and I are trying so hard to point him back in the right direction. Two months ago, I had to have Dennis arrested for assaulting me. We are all worried that something terrible is going to happen. There are times when he is completely out of it and doesnt know whats going on. What do we do? Worried Family in Illinois Dear Worried: It is a nightmare when a family member is on drugs, because there is little you can do. Your brother must want to stop and be willing to get appropriate treatment. Hes not there yet. It is important that your family members protect themselves while being open to any genuine efforts your brother makes to get clean. If he is in college, notify the counselors there, and contact Nar-Anon (nar-anon.org) for support. Dear Annie: My nephew is getting married soon. The wedding will take place in Canada. My husband and I do not own passports, nor would we ever buy them, because they are expensive and we would never use them again. We have traveled to other family weddings within the United States, but we dont feel we should be pressured to attend a wedding out of the country. We cant afford it. Do you think we are required to be there? Soon To Be Family Outcast Dear Soon: No. You are not obligated to attend any wedding, and certainly not one that is beyond your financial means. While we believe family members should make an effort to attend one anothers special events, it should not require overextending yourselves. Send your regrets and a nice gift to make up for your absence. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Need Your Input, the idiot who was critical of his girlfriends Southern drawl. He shouldnt wait until she moves north. She deserves to know now that he is a passiveaggressive loser. Who would presume to tell a grown woman that her accent is offensive? I could understand if it were a grammar issue or if her language were laced with profanities, but her speech pattern is who she is. And she will not lose it if she moves north. It may soften slightly, but it will never go away completely. Clearly, this guy has other issues. If he truly cared for her, this accent would not bother him. In fact, most folks find a Southern accent delightful. It is soothing, relaxing and way sexy. I surely hope this lady discovers who this jerk really is before she changes her life for him. A Yankee in North Carolina Dear Yankee: We agree that if he cannot tolerate her accent, he should not stay in the relationship. But it is not uncommon for people to find one particular trait annoying, no matter how much they otherwise care for a person. And its a highly individual degree of preference and tolerance. You love your boyfriend, but think the way he gestures with his hands is appalling. You adore your girlfriend, but she speaks too softly for your taste. These are neither negative nor positive traits to others. This particular guy finds this particular drawl to be grating. He needs to figure out how important it is to him in the grand scheme of his relationship.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
