C15 Associated Press Cars drive across the nearly empty Zakim Bridge in Boston on Friday prior to a mandatory statewide driving ban. Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick declared a state of emergency Friday and banned travel on roads as of 4 p.m. as a blizzard that could bring nearly 3 feet of snow to the region began to intensify. As the storm gains strength, it will bring extremely dangerous conditions with bands of snow dropping up to 2 to 3 inches per hour at the height of the blizzard, Patrick said. Associated PressBOSTON A storm that forecasters warned could be a blizzard for the history books began clobbering the New York-toBoston corridor Friday, grounding flights, closing workplaces and sending people rushing to get home ahead of a possible 1 to 3 feet of snow. From New Jersey to Maine, shoppers crowded into supermarkets and hardware stores to buy food, snow shovels, flashlights and generators precious commodities after superstorm Sandy in October. Others gassed up their cars, another lesson learned after Sandy. Across much of New England, schools closed ahead of the first snowflakes. This is a storm of major proportions. Stay off the roads. Stay home, said Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. The snowstorm mercifully arrived at the start of a weekend, which means fewer cars on the road and extra time for sanitation crews to clear the mess before commuters in the New York-to-Boston corridor of roughly 25 million people have to go back to work. But it could also mean a weekend cooped up indoors. Rainy Neves, a mother of two in Cambridge, Mass., did some last-minute shopping at a grocery store, filing her cart to the brim. One to 3 feet of snow expected from New Jersey to Maine See BLIZZARD / Page A2 MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle World Guy Erik Bendl makes his way south along U.S. 19 Friday morning with his dog Nice. Bendl is walking to raise awareness of the dangers of diabetes. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerE rik Bendl or World Guy is on a roll. Friday, the Kentuckian with his dog, Nice, in tow, hugged the side of U.S. 19 as he entered Citrus County from Levy County rolling an 80-pound, 6-foot-tall blue-and-green ball, or globe. I am the World Guy. I am walking the world to bring awareness to diabetes and to help cure one diabetic at a time, Bendl said. Everyone knows someone dealing with this disease. By walking, I can show people a healthy way to fight the disease. Im a health evangelist of sorts and I get to lose some weight, too, he said with a chuckle. Bendl began his latest walk in the Milton/Pensacola area Jan. 2 and is heading to Tampa with the giant globe tethered to a stick. Laden with a backpack and a brimmed hat, Bendl says he gets a lot of time for introspection and enjoying natures bounty as he walks. His goal is usually between 10 and 15 miles per day, come snow, rain or brilliant Kentuckian rolls the globe to spread awareness about diabetes If I can get just one person to change their way of life, just by going for a walk or eating healthy because of what I am doing, well, that would be great. Erik Bendl World Guy, on his mission. Erik Bendl has a blog where he chronicles his daily journey at http://www.worldguy.org/ Bendl also is on Facebook as the World Guy and he can be reached at 502-408-5772 or http://main.diabetes.org/goto/ worldguy N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER At 88, Civil Air Patrol Col. Mary Feik looks like a typical grandma, with short, cropped gray hair and big, round eyeglasses. However, how many grandmas can say they had a jet fighter airplane named after them? How many grandmas trained pilots and aircraft mechanics and flew training missions during World War II and were named as one of the 100 most influential women in aviation and aerospace of the 20th century? How many grandmas are aviation legends, grouped with notables like the Wright Brothers and Neil Armstrong? Shes a living legend, said Maj. Keith Shewbart, squadron commander of West Citrus Civil Air Patrol Cadet Squadron 445 as he introduced Feik at the squadrons annual awards ceremony Thursday. The cadets, ages 14 to 18, sat spellbound as Feik, herself an honorary lifetime Civil Air Patrol member, spoke for more than an hour, telling stories about the planes she flew and knew personally and her experiences of challenging the gender barrier in aviation and Mary Feik At 88, still flies her own plane a 1962 Comanche.

Honestly, a lot of junk a lot of quick things you can make just in case lights go out, a lot of snacks to keep the kids busy while theyd be inside during the storm, things to sip with my friends, things for movies, she said. Just a whole bunch of things to keep us entertained. In heavily Catholic Boston, the Archdiocese urged parishioners to be prudent about attending Sunday Mass and reminded them that, under church law, the obligation does not apply when there is grave difficulty in fulfilling this obligation. Halfway through what had been a mild winter across the Northeast, blizzard warnings were posted from parts of New Jersey to Maine. The National Weather Service said Boston could get close to 3 feet of snow by Saturday evening, while most of Rhode Island could receive more than 2 feet. Connecticut was bracing for 2 feet, and New York City was expecting as much as 14 inches. By Friday evening, the New York-to-Boston corridor was getting swirling snow and freezing rain. Early snowfall was blamed for a 19-car pileup in Cumberland, Maine, that caused minor injuries. The snow was expected to be at its heaviest Friday night and into Saturday. Forecasters said wind gusts up to 75 mph could cause widespread power outages and whip the snow into fearsome drifts. Floodingwas expected along coastal areas still recovering from superstorm Sandy. Meteorologist Jeff Masters of Weather Underground said the storm was actually a collision of two storms, and may end up among the Boston areas Top 5 most intense ever. When you add two respectable storms together, youre going to get a knockout punch with this one, he said. It could break Bostons all-time snowstorm record of 27.6 inches, set in 2003, forecasters said. The storm also comes almost 35 years to the day after the Blizzard of a ferocious storm that dropped 27 inches of snow, packed hurricane-force winds and claimed dozens of lives. Masters said the region could get a break from warmer air trailing behind expected to push temperature up to the 40s by Monday. Its going to be not that difficult to dig out, compared to maybe some other noreasters in the past, where it stayed cold after the storm went through, he said. Drivers were urged to stay off the streets lest their cars get stuck, preventing snowplows and emergency vehicles from getting through. New York City ran extra commuter trains in the afternoon to help people get home before the brunt of the storm hit. Amtrak stopped running trains in cities around the Northeast on Friday afternoon. Airlines canceled more than 4,200 flights through Saturday, and New York Citys three major airports and Bostons Logan Airport began shutting down in the afternoon. Interstate 95 in Rhode Island was closed to all but essential traffic. In Massachusetts, Gov. Deval P atrick enacted a statewide driving ban for the first time since the Blizzard of Hours before the ban went into effect at 4 p.m., long lines formed at gas stations, some almost out of fuel. James Stone said he was saving the remaining regular gas at his station in Abington, Mass., south of Boston, for snowplow drivers. It hasnt snowed like this in two years, Stone said. Most people are caught way off-guard. For Joe DeMartino of Fairfield, Conn., being overprepared was impossible: His wife was expecting their first baby Sunday. He stocked up on gas and food, got firewood ready and was installing a baby seat in the car. The couple also packed for the hospital. At Rosies Liquors in Abington, Mass., customers were lined up eight to 10 deep Friday, snapping up rum, wine and 30-packs of beer. Weve been absolutely slammed. Its almost been like Christmas here, manager Kristen Brown said. A lot of people are saying, Im going to be stuck with my family all weekend. I need something to do. sunshine, as the weather was Friday. Bendls target Friday was Crystal River by nightfall. He estimates he has walked more than 6,000 miles since 2007 and has been to 39 states. Motorists often stop to offer water, food and to make donations to the American Diabetes Association whose T-shirt he dons. I lost my mother (Gerta Bendl) to the disease when she was 54 years old and my uncle has it and is still hanging in there. I dont have the disease, but with my family history, I figured I better do something, Bendl said. He said there were times he tipped the scale at 280 pounds, but since he has been walking and eating properly, his weight has more or less hovered around 220 to 230. Bendl said the idea about walking with the ball began with his sons seventh birthday. He said he got the ball from a childrens summer camp where he volunteered in the 1980s. However, the ball sat in his basement for years until his sons birthday party, when he inflated it, but it was too big for his backyard. So he decided to roll it to a nearby park to play with his son, and people kept asking where he was going and what his cause was. Bendl said his first hike in the name of diabetes was in 1999, from Louisville his home to Lexington, Ky. In part to honor his mothers battle with diabetes and her subsequent death, and his uncles struggles with the disease, in 2007 decided to begin walking full time. If I can get just one person to change their way of life, just by going for a walk or eating healthy because of what I am doing, well, that would be great, Bendl said.

E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Wearing his U.S. Army dress jacket, Donald Robertson stood proudly as the long-awaited medal was pinned to his coat. He had dreamed of this day for almost 69 years and waited eagerly for the proud moment. French counsel general Gael de Maisonneuve distributed Frances Legion of Honor Medal to 24 World War II veterans at a ceremony Jan. 29 at the International Motorsports Center in Daytona. It is the most prestigious honor France gives for outstanding merit. The medal is being given nationwide to American veterans who fought for freedom of France during 1944 and 1945. At that time, Robertson was a 19-year-old Merchant Marine combat engineer, who also served in the infantry. He was a .30-caliber water-cooled machine gunman who patrolled Omaha Beach in Normandy. Robertson still remembers what occurred that day. The 116th Infantry Regiment, which was the 29th Infantry Division, was the initial troops that hit the beach, Robertson said. The 147th Combat Engineers were a part of the 6th Engineer Special Brigade. That was the outfit that handled and ran the beach area. Robertson explained the D1 exit was the only outlet accessible for departure off the beach for miles. However, a concrete wall blocked bumper-tobumper traffic lining the beach. The blockage resulted in thousands dying. The beach was being shelled by mortars, Robertson said. Airplanes were bombing and there were dead people all over the place. It was like sand on a beach but instead dead bodies everywhere. His infantry had racks welded on top of their bulldozers to hold hundreds of pounds of explosives. They took the explosives and blew up the wall until it disintegrated, which allowed vehicles to depart the beach. Robertson said the 121st engineers were given the credit, though. They were given the credit for blowing the wall at D1 exit, he said angrily. They did not have the explosives to blow down the wall. When I saw that they were given credit, I blew my cork. After his recognition in Daytona, Robertson sat in his chair at Cedar Creek Assisted Living Residence, content and proud of the acknowledgment of the truth. About 800 medals have been awarded in Florida. World War II veterans who served in France after the invasion on June 6, 1944, are being sought. They must apply and are screened for the medal.

OF HONOR TO AN AMERICAN MERCHANT MARINE P AT F AHERTY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Citrus County Administrator Brad Thorpe on Friday gave a grim budget assessment, but provided options to ameliorate the anticipated $12 million shortfall. We are in a crisis, Thorpe said at the Citrus County Chamber of Commerces monthly lunch meeting. We are going to find a solution. He explained the reduction of Progress Energy tax dollars cost the county about $11 million at a time when the county is also facing lower property values. We have eliminated 103 positions, he said, attacking some misconceptions about county finances. We could lay off every employee in Citrus County and still not balance the budget. He showed how the money available for discretionary spending about $20 million is a small, declining portion of the overall $231 million budget; and, how relatively little is being spent on economic development in relation to other counties. Contrary to popular belief, we anticipated this, Thorpe said. Were going to make it work. He outlined some possible new revenue sources to augment ad valorem taxes. Steps being considered include creating Municipal Service Taxing Units and Municipal Service Benefit Units, which create revenue for specific services and franchise fees for the use of county right of way. Another option is a sales tax, he said. We could do a lot with a sales tax. Twenty-six percent of our taxes are potentially going away; weve got to look at a new way of doing business. It may cost more to live here, he said. But that may be what it takes to live the way we want to live. Thorpe cited the past criticisms for paving the Rails to Trails project and building Holder Park, which turned out to be among the best things the county has done, he said.

SIDIBE Staff writerMelvin Lamar Mathers, 43, was arrested Thursday on a sexual assault charge in the alleged rape of a 55-year-old woman, according to a report by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Mathers is facing one count of sexual battery without force or violence. According to the report, the incident began as a consensual sexual encounter until the woman demanded to halt the activity because of a medical ailment. The woman told investigators she repeatedly told Mathers to stop, which reportedly infuriated him and he escalated the battery with another sexual assault, causing injury. When investigators asked Mathers about the incident, he reportedly told them he hadnt had sex with the woman in weeks and that everything was a setup. He further reportedly noted that when he went to the womans house he was accompanied by a female companion. However, the referenced female companion told investigators she was not with Mathers during the visit. The report also pointed inconsistencies in Mathers statements to authorities before he decided he needed an attorney. Mathers was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. No bond was allowed. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicle online.com.

Word got back to Rolls Royce in England that there was a girl who was going to do unspeakable things to their (airplane) engine and potentially damage the company image, the petite aviator told the cadets. Well, Mr. Walters from Rolls Royce came, and when I went to shake his hand I could tell he was afraid hed hurt me, but he didnt know that Im a wrench bender and I have a good, solid handshake. As she showed a PowerPoint photo of a P-80 Captivair, she said, Someone from the newspaper came out and saw me on the wing and found out who I was, she said. Her photo ran in the paper with the headline Marys Little Lamb. Ever since, no matter where in the country, whenever there was a P-80 on the field it was called Marys Little Lamb, she said. Can you have anything better than that? Feik, who lives in Maryland, told the cadets about growing up near Buffalo, N.Y., helping her dad by welding in his auto repair shop. After graduating high school, she wanted to pursue a career in engineering, but was told by a University of Buffalo registrar they didnt take women that women cant handle the work. I went home and told my father, she said. At 7, I was taking care of all his tools. At 11, I did all his welding. At 13, I overhauled my first V-8 engine, and at 15 I did all the initial road tests on all the cars we repaired. In those days, women didnt drive and they certainly didnt own cars, so my father went to the police department to make sure that if they saw some 15-year-old girl out driving they wouldnt arrest me. Her father found her a civilian job teaching aircraft maintenance in North Carolina for the Army Air Corps. She learned to fly, and at 18 she flew her first P-51. For my job, I had to fly every new airplane that the Air Corps bought, and then I had to write all the flight training manuals, she said. Feik ended her talk by challenging the cadets to learn all they can, dream big and do great things. At 88, she still flies her own 1962 Comanche and believes the sky is limitless. Its up to you young people to keep this country going, technologically and every other way, she said. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa Once largely united in resisting the Obama administrations new health care overhaul, a growing number of Republican governors are now buying into parts of the system as the financial realities of their states medical costs begin to counterbalance election politics. This week, Michigans Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his states health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administrations strong recommendation. Eleven Republican governors have rejected the idea while a dozen, who have been mostly critical, have not announced a decision. Politically, the dynamic may be shifting, said Matt Benson, a senior aide to Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, who proposed expanding Medicaid last month. There may be some folks looking at this anew. In each state, the proposal must still be approved by the legislature, where there is still Republican opposition. In explaining their decisions, many have said rejecting an expansion would mean their taxpayers would subsidize care for those in other states, while receiving no benefits themselves. In Ohio, that would be an estimated $2.4 billion over two years, Gov. John Kasich said Monday. Twenty-four states have agreed to participate in another optional part of the federal health plan setting up an online marketplace where residents can shop for subsidized insurance coverage. GOP governors soften stances on Medicaid expansion

Associated PressNEW YORK The worst of the flu season appears to be over. The number of states reporting intense or widespread flu dropped again last week, U.S. health officials said Friday. The season started earlier than normal, spiking first in the Southeast and then spreading. But now, bysome measures, flu activity has been ebbing for at leastfour weeks in much of the country. Flu and pneumonia deaths have been dropping for two weeks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. Its likely that the worst of the current flu season is over, CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said in an email. Its been nine years since a conventional flu season started like this one. That was the winter of 2003-04 one of the deadliest in the past 35 years, with more than 48,000 deaths. Like this year, that season had the same dominant flu strain, one that tends to make people sicker. But back then, the flu vaccine didnt protect against that bug, and fewer people got flu shots. The vaccine is reformulated each year, and the CDC has said this years vaccine is a good match to the types that are circulating. A preliminary CDC study showed this years version is about 60 percent effective. So far, the season has been labeled moderately severe. On average, about 24,000 Americans die each flu season, according to the CDC. Flu vaccinations are recommended for everyone 6 months or older. Kathleen Kathie Galati, 72 HOMOSASSA Kathleen A.

Associated Press The mythical jester figure who reigns over Carnival, King Momo, is represented by the the crowned and costumed Milton Rodrigues Junior, who arrives for the official kickoff ceremony Friday flashing a thumbs-up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. An estimated half million visitors to the city of 6 million people are expected to attend the festivities. Health officials: Worst of flu season may be past Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO As samba queens get final touch-ups on their sequins and feathers and hundreds of thousands of revelers take command of Rios streets for Carnivals opening on Friday, Leo Name is hunkering down. The self-avowed Carnival Scrooge has stocked up on frozen TV dinners and hopes he wont have to set foot outside his apartment during the five days of festivities. Appalled by the monumental proportions street parties have taken on in recent years with the influx of an estimated half million visitors to the city of 6 million people, many locals flee Rio or lock themselves away for the duration. Fans of Carnival dismiss them as blasphemous curmudgeons. But Name and others insist theirs is a rational response to an event that shutters businesses, snarls traffic and sees public spaces overrun by beer-guzzling revelers who think any place is a good space to urinate. Over the past years, the crowds have gotten so thick that I couldnt even make it to the metro and wasnt able to buy bread at the supermarket, which is literally downstairs from my place, said Name, a geography professor at Rios Pontific Catholic University. I felt like I was under siege. It wasnt always like that. For decades, Rio was fairly calm during Carnival. Residents who could afford it took advantage of the public holiday to go on vacation, and the citys pace slowed. Carnival celebrations were mostly restricted to the well-regimented parades at the Sambadrome, where spectators now pay from $78 to $1,032 a person to marvel at the over-the-top floats, the musicians unflagging enthusiasm and the fancy footwork of dancers decked out in not much more than a sprinkling of rhinestones and a puff of ostrich feathers. When I was a kid, I used to go to three, four or even five movies a day during Carnival because the cinemas had these special discounts to try to drum up an audience, said the 35-year-old Name.It was great. The city was empty, the metro was empty, the streets were empty,and there were no lines anywhere. But Carnival has spilled into Rios streets with the resurgence of blocos raucous, heavy-drinking street parties that regularly draw tens or hundreds of thousands of people. This year, organizers are hoping Rios biggest bloco, Bola Preta, or Black Ball, which in 2012 attracted an estimated 2 million people to the historic city center, will enter the Guinness Book of World Records as the worlds biggest street As Carnival seizes Rio, some locals seek refuge Organizers are hoping Rios biggest bloco, Bola Preta, will enter the Guinness Book of World Records as the worlds biggest street party.

Mon.-Fri. 10am-5:00pm Sat. 11am-3pm Thru 2/14/13 2012 2012 2012 2012 Associated PressNEW YORK The Standard and Poors 500 edged up to a five-year high Friday, extending a rally that started in January. The S&P 500 rose 8.54 points to 1,517.93, closing 0.3 percent up for the week. The index is at its highest since November 2007 and has advanced for six weeks, the longest streak of gains since August. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 48.92 points, or 0.4 percent, to 13,992.97. The Nasdaq composite climbed 28.74 points, or 0.9 percent, to finish the week at 3,193.87. The Dow had its best January in almost two decades, and closed above 14,000 on Feb. 1 for the first time since 2007. The index is up 6.8 percent so far this year; the S&P 500 is up 6.4 percent. A last-minute budget deal in Washington to avoid the fiscal cliff of tax hikes and spending cuts helped powered the rally, as did as optimism about the housing sector and improvements in the jobs market. The S&P 500 finished the week higher despite logging its biggest daily decline in almost three months Monday following worrying news from Europe. The index fell 1.2 percent that day as bond yields in Spain and Italy rose on concern that the regions politicians will drag Europe back into crisis. European Central Bank President Mario Draghis cautious comments about the regions economy also weighed on markets Thursday. Everybody seems to be saying this market needs to correct, said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Banyan Partners. Nobody wants to be in it, but nobody wants to be out of it. Largely positive corporate earnings reports and a report that showed that the U.S. trade deficit narrowed sharply in December provided more fuel for the markets advance Friday. The trade deficit fell nearly 21 percent in December from November to $38.6 billion, the smallest in nearly three years, as exports rose while oil imports plummeted. The smaller trade gap means the economy likely performed better in the final three months of last year than first reported last week. The trade balance was surprisingly very good, said Phil Orlando, chief market strategist at Federated Investors. The government estimated that the U.S. economy contracted at an annual rate of 0.1 percent in the last three months of 2012. Orlando estimates that may now be revised to growth of 0.5 percent. Currently, analysts are expecting earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 to rise 6.5 percent for S&P 500 companies, according to data from S&P Capital I&Q. Stocks have benefited as investors poured a net $4.1 billion into stock mutual funds since the start of the year, according to data provided by Lipper. Im very encouraged by the fact, that finally, for the first time in many years, individual investors seem to be participating in this, said David Kelly, chief S&P 500 hits five-year high, extends rally Currently, analysts are expecting earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 to rise 6.5 percent for S&P 500 companies. Business HIGHLIGHTS Watsons medical expertise offered commerciallyWHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Dr. Watson is accepting new patients. The Watson supercomputer is graduating from its medical residency and is being offered commercially to doctors and health insurance companies, IBM said Friday. IBM Corp., the health insurer WellPoint Inc. and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center announced two Watson-based applications one to help diagnose and treat lung cancer and one to help manage health insurance decisions and claims. McDonalds sales fall again amid weakness in Asia NEW YORK McDonalds says a key sales figure dropped again in January as the worlds biggest hamburger chain faced ongoing weakness in Japan and sales in China were hurt by a food scare and the timing of a holiday. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company said global sales at restaurants open at least 13 months dropped 1.9 percent for the month. The figure is a key metric because it strips out the volatility of newly opened and closed locations. After years of outperforming rivals, McDonalds has been struggling amid intensifying competition and challenging economic conditions around the world. Coal sales investigated by feds; no violations yet BILLINGS, Mont. The U.S. Department of Interior is investigating whether mining companies are skirting royalty rules as they increase exports of coal to Asia, but no violations have yet been issued, federal officials disclosed Friday. The investigation is focused on companies that use affiliates or brokers to sell coal from mines in the Western U.S. to customers in Asia. Thats when the parent company pays government royalties based on the mine price, then the affiliate ships the fuel overseas where its sold for many times the original price. From wire reports Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Dell Inc.s decision to sell itself for $24.4 billion to a group led by its founder and CEO is being ridiculed as a rotten deal by a major shareholder who estimates the slumping personal computer maker is really worth $42 billion. The missive launched Friday by Southeastern Asset Management Inc. threatens to complicate Dell Inc.s efforts to end its 25-year history as a public company. In a letter to Dells board of directors, Southeastern CEO O. Mason Hawkins threatened to lead a shareholder mutiny unless the company came up with an alternative to the deal announced earlier this week. Hawkins vowed to wield Southeasterns 8.5 percent stake to thwart the deal currently on the table. Only Michael Dell, the companys eponymous founder and CEO, owns more stock with a roughly 14 percent stake. Under Dells proposal, Southeastern and other stockholders will be paid $13.65 per share to leave the company in control of Michael Dell, who founded the business in his University of Texas dorm room in 1984. Michael Dell is contributing about $4.5 billion in stock and cash to help pay for the deal. The rest of the money would be supplied by the investment firm Silver Lake, loans from Microsoft Corp. and a litany of banks. The loans will burden Dell with debts that could leave the company with less money to invest in innovation and acquisitions. Hawkins derided the price of the proposed sale as woefully inadequate and laid out a scenario that values Dell at $23.72 per share, or about $42 billion. The per-share amount mirrors Dells stock price six years ago, when Michael Dell returned for a second go-round as the companys CEO. In statement late Friday, Dell said it stands behind the merits of the deal. The company emphasized that it worked with financial advisers to explore a wide range of alternatives before agreeing to sell the company for $24.4 billion a price 80 percent below Dells top market value of more than $150 billion at the peak of the dot-com boom.

Page A8 SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2013 There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval. George Santayana, Soliloquies in England, 1922 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Use power of vote to make change The announcement by Duke Energy to close the nuclear plant at Crystal River generates some observation by me. Apparently the plant is in need of repairs because former owner Progress Energy damaged the facility trying to do repairs it was not equipped to do. The plant has not produced any electricity for the past three years. Our bought-and-paid-for state Legislature allowed Progress to bill customers for the anticipated repair costs to fix the problem it created. During the debate as to how or if to repair the nuclear plant, Progress and now Duke initiated a plan to building another nuclear plant in Levy County. That same bought-andpaid-for Legislature passed legislation that allows the power companies to bill, in advance, for new facilities at customers expense. In the real world of business, expansion is a cost of doing business and that cost is recovered by the future customers that the expansion is hopefully creating. Unless, that is, you have the power to entice the state Legislature to dump the cost on the citizens. So now you have a defunct nuclear plant setting on prime costal property that cannot even start to be disassembled for 60 years. In addition, highly radioactive nuclear waste will remain stored there for who knows how long. The company, rather than fix the existing facility, will just go and create another unusable piece of land for a new plant there does not appear to be a need for. To sum up my observations, we the consumer paid a private company to make repairs to its plant that it damaged but choose not to repair. It kept our money to pay for a new plant that will destroy another piece of Florida, it will store nuclear waste on the already useless land of the closed plant for many years to come, all with the blessing of our bought-and-paid-for Florida Legislature. Yet the citizens of Citrus County continue to elect the same people. One can only assume that the voting robots of this county enjoy having their pockets fleeced. Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills Change form of government It changes everything. Were in a new era, County Administrator Brad Thorpe said. Its a wake-up call in this county for everyone who wants quality of life. I do not agree with this statement by the county administrator. The fact is, many people in Citrus County wanted a sleepy little town, no real business and lets depend on Progress to support us. Other than Progress, the county has depended upon retirees and snowbirds to survive. County costs are going to have to be cut. Lets start at the top this time and change the form of government we have so we can lower the commissioners salaries from nearly $60,000 to, say, $20,000 each, and do away with some of the cars the sheriffs department has. Get the EDC out really looking for jobs that will pay more than $10 per hour. Create some Tax Increment Finance zones and lower impact fees so companies will locate here. Sell the quality of life; however, sell that Citrus County is looking to grow and is business-friendly, not restrictive. Stop paying school board members; this should be a job you do because you care, not for the money. The superintendent of schools should be appointed by the school board, not elected. Citrus County is going to have to look at the way it does business and change many, many things if it is to go on and progress into the future. Ray Speerly Inverness CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M. Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARD Gerry Mulligan .................................... publisherMike Arnold .............................................. editor Charlie Brennan .......................... editor at largeCurt Ebitz .................................. citizen member Mac Harris ................................ citizen member Rebecca Martin .......................... guest member Brad Bautista .................................... copy chief Its your history; celebrate it H istory is often thought of as simply a recording of dates and events, but history is and should be more: as David McCullough once wrote, history is who we are and why we are the way we are. This is the idea behind the designation of February as Black History Month. By examining events in this one aspect of the American experience, we learn more about others and about ourselves, for the history of Americans of African descent is inextricably tied to the fabric of the history of America. It is ultimately the story of how one group of immigrants often brought to the country against their will became part of and helped to influence the culture of the country we call home. The idea of a time focused on black history goes back to 1915, when Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by black Americans and other peoples of African descent. In 1926, the group sponsored a Black History Week, and they chose to have the event in February because it is the birth month of Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist Frederick Douglass. This event grew over time until 1976, when President Gerald Ford designated February as Black History Month. Every president since Ford has repeated this designation and has endorsed a specific theme. The theme for 2013 is At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality, and focuses on the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation signed by Abraham Lincoln and the 1963 March on Washington, during which Martin Luther King gave his historic I Have a Dream speech. For more information on this years theme, visit the Library of Congress website at http://www.africanamerican historymonth.gov/ One of the major local events during this month will be the sixth annual African American Read-In held Sunday afternoon, Feb. 24, at the Learning and Conference Center on the campus of the College of Central Florida. This project began as a cooperative effort of several local groups and is an opportunity to learn more through ideas and images conveyed by the written word. The program is free and open to the public. Whether through quiet study or by attending educational events, there is much to learn about the American experience, for the past is a reminder of human truths, containing both mistakes and moments of nobility and greatness. We learn from each of these, and what we learn helps us understand ourselves and our neighbors, and what we all share as citizens of this great country.

It would also take it out of the cartels hands.Collecting from the poorPhase V sewer systems further encroachment of county government going into private business and making money off of the poor populace. Why on Earth would they charge over $3,000 to have people hook on to the sewers as a fee to them? And from then on every month, theyll be collecting money from the poor populace. If they really want sewers, they should provide sewerage for free, then charge the people to use them. Thats the way most cities work. This county commission is all about collecting money.

S OUND OFF CALL 563-0579 O n the morning of the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Courts Roe v. Wade ruling, I felt a chill, and it wasnt the bitter cold. After Mass at St. Patricks Cathedral, some 500 or so New Yorkers walked through the streets of Midtown Manhattan, in front of God, man and Grand Central Station, praying for life, love and mercy. Our prayers were not in judgment of others but that humanity may do better: that women and men may see better options than abortion and that God may forgive us for letting anyone think that she is alone and has no other choice than the death of her child. The chill was the knowledge that some of the people nearby know the pain of abortion all too well. It was the certainty that someone, on her morning commute, was thinking that was her only option. It was the sharing in a communitys pain, guilt and sorrow. We tend to live our lives masked in a veil of the self, pretending we live alone. But as solitary as we might sometimes feel, our actions affect others. Now is the time to take a few steps back not to turn back the clock, but to reflect. Our problems wont be solved through legislative actions. And legislative solutions, to the extent that they are effective, cant be maximized without a fuller context. We cant simply hold a vote to defund Planned Parenthood in order to send a political message and assume that the culture will change, that people will suddenly see the poisonous eugenics upon which the organization was founded and see adoption as the brilliant and generous option that it is. A congressional vote is not a magic trick. There are so many more steps involved. In a new book, Fill These Hearts, author Christopher West asks us to Consider the idea that our bodies tell a story that reveals, as we learn how to read it, the very meaning of existence and the path to the ultimate satisfaction of our deepest desire. West makes the point that our bodies and souls are not separate things, and that our very physical design speaks to our creation and destination. In the biblical understanding, there exists a profound unity between that which is physical and that which is spiritual, he writes. This means that our bodies are not mere shells in which our true spiritual selves live. We are a profound unity of body and soul, matter and spirit. In a very real way, we are our bodies. The general acceptance of the notion that our bodies are more than a conglomeration of biological functions is no longer something we can take for granted. Not when our federal health care policy treats womens fertility as a disease, as a roadblock to a confused misunderstanding of freedom and equality. Not when we are sending women into combat. The world-famous former mayor of New York City, Ed Koch, just died. He was good friends with the late Cardinal John OConnor. They collaborated on a book, His Eminence and Hizzoner, in 1989 in which Koch wrote: The future of our nation depends on our ability to inculcate a strong sense of morality in our young people. That moral sense should be based on philosophical, ethical and religious teachings, which are the underpinnings of conscience. The way to oppose abortion is by challenging the conscience of those who advocate it. If the battle cannot be won at the level of conscience, it cannot be won. But what is conscience? What constitutes right or wrong? If we do not agree there are answers to these questions, well never have a constructive policy or cultural debate about abortion. That is the basic work we need to address. No election is ever going to be better without it. No culture is ever going to be renewed without it. No lives are going to be truly saved and redeemed without it. We wont start making sense again without it. The dark bitter cold of winter will be warmed by the renewal that comes with embracing life, living life lovingly, supporting life, letting someone know they are not alone.

Compassion for the unborn After weeks of media coverage and countless expressions of condolences, there should be little doubt that our nation is extremely compassionate. Or so it seems. The slaughter of 26 innocent people, including 20 defenseless youngsters babies really is a devastating remembrance. How any rational person can escape the patent injustice and cruelty of such an act is beyond reason. Or so it seems. There have been many other similar events, some receiving highprofile exposure, like Columbine, the Colorado theater and now Newtown. Others, like the Jan. 21 AP report of five family members being gunned down by a 15-year old in Albuquerque, deserved only a back page single column sterile report. Do the media just file away compassion because of column space or subject overexposure? I am not suggesting more coverage of every tragedy. I am perhaps testing the medias motives. Do the victims or family members or community benefit from the media hype? I know when one of my six children died, the last thing I wanted was any form of public spotlight. So then, is it the media that benefits? Is the story more fodder than compassion; more than factual news reporting? Is this perhaps media competition for the attention of the public? Do I come not to praise Caesar but to bury him. No, just to open a wound. Is compassion magnified by media attention? What does it take to bring a tearful president from our capital to the site of the tragedy to pledge a new protection plan for our children ... only to have that plan morph into a very incendiary and polarizing gun control issue? If I did not know better I would wonder if Rahm Emanuels Never let a good crisis go to waste was resurrected from the administrations back room. The thought then occurs to me that compassion is, or should be, an innate part of an individuals moral being. Yet, I have witnessed in my lifetime a growing erosion of compassion for, as example, the unborn babies that are killed every year, every day in our country; many of them healthy living human beings. Do we feel compassion knowing that, as those 20 poor defenseless toddlers at Sandy Hook lost their lives, there were, that day, also 25 children-in-waiting aborted? Each of the aborted children was every bit as defenseless as those 20 children at Newtown that were slaughtered by a crazed gunman. But still many accept the argument that a womans right to administer to her own body includes the right to remove a living human being that is growing within, her not as a threatening medical oddity, but as a natural and sacred process of procreation. No small matter, creation. The taking of a life is murder in almost every society on Earth. A hundred years ago, life was almost universally considered as beginning at birth that first breath, that first cry. Medical science has since proven that concept erroneous. A fetus is now able to live outside the womb two or three months prior to the normal nine months. Science can now detect and measure a heart beat in a fetus less than a month old! I know there are conflicting circumstances that can sway opinions, so a line in the sand is not the answer. But, with 34 years having elapsed since Roe V. Wade, coupled with advanced medical knowledge, there is substantial reason to revisit our countrys position on abortion. This issue is our moral appraisal. Ted LaPorte Hernando Discriminating across borders The Jay Treaty is an agreement signed by the United States and Great Britain in 1794 to allow Canadian born Native Americans to travel freely across the U.S./Canadian border. (http://www.ptla. org/wabanaki/crossborder-issues-jay-treaty). Since 1928, United States law has specifically recognized the right of American Indians born in Canada to pass the borders of the United States, but has limited that right to persons who possess at least 50 per centum of blood of the American Indian race. So, if you are a Native American born in Canada, you have specific rights and benefits, including the right to cross the U.S./Canada border freely and live and work in the United States. Canadian Native Americans do not have to have a green card, register as an alien or obtain work authorization. Moreover, the U.S. cannot deport Canadian Native Americans nor deny them services. Geographically, Canada, the U.S., and Mexico are inclusive of the North American continent; therefore, each and every indigenous person within the three countries are North American natives. According to the CIAs World Fact Book, Amerindians (native North Americans) with 50 percent or more Indian blood make up 30 percent of Mexicos population. All the above being true, I suppose one could argue that morally if not legally Mexicos 35 million Native North Americans are being discriminated against.

His son, who comes down from New York for one week, applied for a concealed weapons permit and he obtained it. Is this legal? I thought you had to be a resident all year-round in Florida to obtain a concealed weapons permit. Anyone out there know the answer?

I would guess that 90 percent of the time or better, they vote on things such as Ottawa, the sewer, the port, public services at Meadowcrest, the vote is always 5-0. These guys are lockstep at 5-0; its always 5-0. To be fair, Commissioner Meek voted no one time, I think that was maybe, but its not on one of these major issues. We can do better.

Bushes hacked Associated Press President George H.W. Bush, and his wife, Barbara, are seen June 12 in Kennebunkport, Maine. A criminal investigation is under way after a hacker accessed private photos and emails sent between members of the Bush family, including both former presidents. Hacker accesses Bush family emails HOUSTON A mysterious email hacker apparently accessed private photos and messages sent between members of the Bush family, including both retired commanders in chief. The Secret Service is investigating the breach, which appeared to yield little more than a few snapshots and some family discussions. But the incident illustrated how easily hackers can pry into private lives, even those of one of the nations most prominent and closely guarded political clans. The Smoking Gun website displayed photos it said came from the hacker, including one that purported to show the elder Bush during his recent stay in a Houston hospital, where the 88-year-old spent almost two months undergoing treatment for complications from a bronchial infection. Power company takes outage blame NEW ORLEANS The company that supplied electricity to the Super Bowl took the blame Friday for the power outage that brought the big game to a halt, explaining a device designed specifically to prevent a blackout failed and plunged the game into darkness for more than half an hour. The device, called a relay, had been installed to protect the Superdome from problems in the cable that links the companys incoming power line with the lines that run into the stadium. Amish ringleader gets 15 years CLEVELAND The ringleader in hairand beard-cutting attacks on fellow Amish in Ohio was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison and 15 family members received sentences of one year to seven years. The victims were terrorized and traumatized, U.S. District Court Judge Dan Aaron Polster said in sentencing leader Sam Mullet Sr., 67, who sat without emotion. The judge said the defendants had violated the constitutional rights protecting religious practice that had benefited them as Amish such as an exemption from jury service and allowing Amish children to leave school at age 14. The 10 men and six women were convicted last year in five attacks in Amish communities in 2011. The government said the attacks were retaliation against Amish who had defied or denounced Mullets authoritarian style.

Venezuela set to devalue currency CARACAS, Venezuela Venezuelas government announced Friday that it is devaluing the countrys currency, a longanticipated change expected to push up prices in the heavily import-reliant economy. Officials said the fixed exchange rate is changing from 4.30 bolivars to 6.30 bolivars to the dollar. The devaluation had been widely expected by analysts in recent months, though experts had been unsure about whether the government would act while President Hugo Chavez remained out of sight in Cuba recovering from surgery. It was the first devaluation to be announced by Chavezs government since 2010, and it brought down the official value of the bolivar by 46.5 percent against the dollar.Gunmen kill polio workers KANO, Nigeria Gunmen suspected of belonging to a radical Islamic sect shot and killed at least nine women who were taking part in a polio vaccination drive in northern Nigeria on Friday, highlighting the religious tensions surrounding the inoculation of children in one of the few nations where the disease still remains endemic. The attack shocked residents of Kano, the largest city in Nigerias predominantly Muslim north, where women often go from house to house to carry out the vaccination drives as Muslim families feel more comfortable allowing them inside their homes than men. It also signaled a new wave of anger targeting immunization drives in Nigeria, where clerics once claimed the vaccines were part of a Western plot to sterilize young girls. Definitive death tolls for such attacks in Nigeria are difficult to obtain. Police and military forces in Nigeria routinely downplay such casualties, and families quickly bury the dead before the next sunset per local Muslim tradition. Horsemeat scandal reaches SwedenLONDON Sweden on Friday became the newest European country to be hit by a widening meat products scandal, as frozenfood company Findus said it was recalling beef lasagna meals there after tests confirmed the products contained horsemeat. Already, Britain, Ireland, Poland and France have been drawn into the growing saga over the use of horsemeat and the apparent mislabeling of products along the supply chain. Millions of burgers have been recalled in recent days. Eating horsemeat is not generally a health risk, but the cases have spurred disgust in places where such meat is far from a staple. World BRIEFS From wire reports Sam Mullet Sr. sentenced to 15 years in prison. Associated PressWASHINGTON A cornerstone of President Barack Obamas drive to check gun violence is gathering bipartisan steam as four senators, including two of the National Rifle Associations congressional champions, privately seek compromise on requiring far more firearms purchasers to undergo background checks. The talks are being held even as Obamas call to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, the two other major pillars of his plan, are hitting rough waters on Capitol Hill. An agreement among the four senators to expand background checks would add significant impetus to that highprofile proposal by getting the endorsement of a group that ranges from one of the Senates most liberal Democrats to one of its most conservative Republicans. Well get something, I hope. Im praying for it, said Sen. Joe Manchin, DW.Va., one of the participants. Manchin, a moderate Democrat, is an NRA member who aired a 2010 campaign ad in which he literally shot a hole through Democratic environmental legislation that he pledged to oppose. Also involved is Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., another NRA member with a strong conservative record but occasional maverick impulses; No. 3 Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer of New York, a liberal; and moderate GOP Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois. Background checks are required only for sales by the nations 55,000 federally licensed gun dealers, but not for private purchases like those at gun shows, online or in person. There are few indisputable, up-to-date statistics on how many guns change hands without background checks, but a respected study using 1990s data estimated that 30 percent to 40 percent of gun transactions fit into that category. The senators talks have included discussions about how to encourage states to make more mental health data available to the federal system for checking gun buyers records, according to people who spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to describe the private negotiations. They are also considering potential exemptions to expanded background check requirements, including transactions involving relatives or people with licenses to carry concealed weapons. Associated Press Ken Haiterman, of Pioneer Market, holds a CMMG 5.56mm AR 15 on Jan. 6 during the 2013 Rocky Mountain Gun Show in Sandy, Utah. A bipartisan quartet of senators, including two National Rifle Association members and two with F ratings from the potent firearms lobby, are quietly trying to reach compromise on expanding the requirement for gun-sale background checks. Obama finding unlikely allies in push for background checks Associated Press U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement vehicles are covered in snow Friday near the command post in Big Bear Lake, Calif. Law enforcement officers working in falling snow searched a Southern California mountain Friday for Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer accused of carrying out a killing spree because he felt he was unfairly fired from his job. Associated Press BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. A ll that was left were footprints leading away from Christopher Dorners burned-out pickup truck, and enormous, snow-covered mountains where he could be hiding among hundreds of cabins, deep canyons and dense woods. More than 100 officers, including SWAT teams, were driven Friday in glass-enclosed snow machines and armored personnel carriers to hunt for the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of going on a deadly rampage to get back at those he blamed for ending his police career. With bloodhounds in tow, officers went door to door as snow fell, aware of the reality they could be walking into a trap set by the well-trained former Navy reservist who knows their tactics and strategies as well as they do. The bad guy is out there, he has a certain time on you, and a distance. How do you close that? asked T. Gregory Hall, a retired tactical supervisor for a special emergency response team for the Pennsylvania State Police. The bottom line is, when he decides that he is going to make a stand, the operators are in great jeopardy, Hall said. As authorities weathered heavy snow and freezing temperatures in the mountains, thousands of heavily armed police remained on the lookout throughout California, Nevada, Arizona and northern Mexico. Police said officers still were guarding more than 40 people mentioned as targets in a rant they said Dorner posted on Facebook. He vowed to use every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordinance and survival training Ive been given to bring warfare to the LAPD and its families. At noon, police and U.S. marshals accompanied by computer forensics specialists used a search warrant to remove about 10 paper grocery bags of evidence from his mothers single-story house in the Orange County city of La Palma. Dorners mother and sister cooperated with the search, and a police spokesman said. The manhunt had Southern California residents on edge. Unconfirmed sightings were reported near Barstow, about 60 miles north of the mountain search, and in downtown Los Angeles. Some law enforcement officials said he appeared to be everywhere and nowhere, and speculated that he was trying to spread out their resources. For the time being, their focus was on the mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles a snowy wilderness, filled with thick forests and jagged peaks, that creates peril as much for Dorner as the officers hunting him. Bad weather grounded helicopters with heat-sensing technology. After the discovery of his truck Thursday afternoon, SWAT teams started scouring the mountains. As officers worked through the night, a storm blew in, possibly covering tracks that had led them away from his truck but offering the possibility of a fresh trail to follow. In his online rant, Dorner baited authorities. Any threat assessments you generate will be useless, it read. I have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving. Dorner served in the Navy, earning a rifle marksman ribbon and pistol expert medal. He was assigned to a naval undersea warfare unit and various aviation training units, according to military records. He took leave from the LAPD for a six-month deployment to Bahrain in 2006 and 2007. Last Friday was his last day with the Navy and also the day CNNs Anderson Cooper received a package that contained a note on it that read, in part, I never lied. A coin riddled with bullet holes that former Chief William Bratton gave out as a souvenir was also in the package. Police said it was a sign of planning by Dorner before the killing began. On Sunday, police say, Dorner shot and killed a couple in a parking garage at their condominium in Irvine. The woman was the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing. Dorner wrote in his manifesto that he believed the retired captain had represented the interests of the department over his. Hours after authorities identified Dorner as a suspect in the double murder, police believe Dorner shot and grazed an LAPD officer in Corona and then used a rifle to ambush two Riverside police officers early Thursday, killing one and seriously wounding the other.

Citrus needs overtime for first postseason crown since 2005 S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentBROOKSVILLE An alley-oop dunk by junior Devin Pryor off a feed by sophomore Desmond Franklin with 15 seconds remaining in overtime punctuated a 9-0 Citrus run that helped the Hurricanes to their first district title since 2005 and transformed the Central High School gym into a mass frenzy of ecstatic Citrus fans and players Friday. The second-seeded Canes battled backand-forth with No. 1 seed West Port all game, with the teams exchanging leads 14 times before going to overtime tied at 60 following a missed Wolf Pack layup at the buzzer in the District 6A-6 boys basketball title game. Citrus then went 6-of-8 at the foul line and outrebounded the Wolf Pack 7-1 in the extra period to prevail 73-68. With the victory, the Canes (16-10) earn a home regional playoff game against Gainesville at 7 p.m. Thursday, while West Port (17-7) plays at Leesburg, which defeated Gainesville 91-59 in the 6A-5 championship Friday. The rebounding edge down the stretch weve been in so many close games that its been preached over and over to our players that in that situation we need to get every rebound, make our free throws and not turn the ball over, so its almost automatic now, Citrus head coach Tom Densmore said, while embracing his teams trophy. When your guys step to the line and knock them down, everything works out. It just shows their heart and character and how bad they wanted to win this game. The Wolf Pack drained nine 3-pointers in the game while Citrus, faced with a pesky West Port perimeter defense led by West Port senior Alex Jewell (team-high 18 points) and sophomore Drhyromi Maxwell (12 points), found success inside with layins off drives, soft runners near the hoop and even a pair of hook shots off the glass. Pryor and Citrus junior Mitchell Ellis each scored a game-high 19 points, while senior Randy Lynn (seven boards, eight points) and junior Jay Clark (eight points) were solid in the paint. I guess we werent knocking as many shots down from the perimeter, and we got to double-bonus on fouls, so I thought if we take it to the rim a lot more it would help us win and it did, Ellis said on his teams offensive attack. Pryor added 10 rebounds to help his team to a 14-rebound advantage. I havent been rebounding as well in other games, but I knew I really needed to help out with West Port being a big team that can jump, Pryor said.

RISAK CorrespondentWhen all but two key players return from a team that reached the final 16 in last years state tournament, prospects for the upcoming season seem pretty good. Thats what Lecanto softball coach Robert Dupler has, but he takes nothing for granted. First, theres the matter of replacing those two key losses, first baseman Mariah Hines and third baseman Andrea Coutu. Coutu set school records for hits in a season and batting average (.622). Still, with some promising newcomers and a lot of veterans, the outlook for a Panthers team that won 18 games last year seems promising. Citrus, which like Lecanto is part of District 6A-6, has a lot to replace from a year ago. Coach Larry Bishop lost seven to graduation and has only two seniors on this years squad. But the incoming talent has Bishop looking forward to the upcoming campaign, although he figures it may take a while for the sorting out process to take effect. The goal for the Hurricanes: Be ready by 6A-6 tournament time. Returning is a key term in describing Crystal Rivers softball team. Nine players, including five seniors, are back from a 2012 squad that posted a 15-10 overall record. Also returning for another go-round at coaching is Lana Wentworth, who last served as head coach in 2010. Like the countys other schools, the Pirates want to win now to build momentum come district tournament time.

Citrus (1-1 overall) singles players are still looking to find a rhythm this season as both No.1 and 2 seeds Kyle Everett and Grey Pospiech lost their respective singles matches for the second meet in a row. Everett was dropped 8-4 by Weeki Wachees Chris Rosser. Pospiech was similarly defeated by Mark Mulleavey 8-3 in the No. 2 matchup.

B2 S ATURDAY, F EBRUARY9, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS two up the ladder would be gratifying after last season. The Warriors were just 2-16 and lost in the opening round of the 2A-4 tournament. Heres a look at each teams prospects for 2013: Lecanto Last season: 18-10 overall, District 6A-6 runner-up, lost in Class 6A regional semifinal. Key returnees: Amber Atkinson, C; Danielle Yant, P; Jordan Martin, 2B; Amber Russo, SS; Lilly Parrish, OF; Breanna Martin, OF/P; Paige Richards, OF, Kelsey Lilley, DH. Key newcomers: Sidney Holstein; Amber Hopkins. Key losses: Andrea Coutu, 3B; Mariah Hines, 1B. Outlook: Theres a single schools name that eats at the Panthers Springstead. After last season, it should. The Eagles beat Lecanto four times, including in the district finals and regional semifinals. One name that wont haunt the Panthers this year, however, is Alexis Adams, the Springstead pitcher who blanked Lecanto in those final two meetings. Adams and several other players are gone from that team, but dont count the Eagles out of the 6A-6 race. Still, the Panthers are powerful. Yant did the bulk of the pitching a year ago She hits her spots real well, said Robert Dupler, Lecantos coach and she has an all-star catcher in Atkinson, the Chronicles 2012 Softball Player of the Year. Atkinson hit .488 last season with six home runs and 34 runs batted in. Dupler plans to use the regular season to try and put them in where they fit best. The girls all hit the ball real well and they committed something like 56 errors. The goal for this year: We want to be ready for the district tournament, Dupler said. Our objective game in and game out is to get better. Now weve 25 practice games to get ready for the district tournament. CitrusLast season: 12-13 overall, lost in District 6A-6 semifinals. Key returnees: Aaron McIntyre, SS/CF; Jessica Liptrap, 3B; Amy Abramowich, 1B/OF; Kelly Abramowich, P/OF; Chelby Lawler, OF/P. Melissa Michaud, C; Rachel Martin, P/OF; Kayla Quesenberry, P/1B. Key newcomers: Jordan Josey, P/SS; April DeSomma, 2B/SS; Erica Corlew, SS/C; Emily Ferreira, SS/2B; Sarah Marchant, 3B; Decaysha Miller, OF. Key losses: Kelly Ellis, Devon Perrine, Danielle Garcia, Molly Price, Morgan Metzger, Emily Parker, Chelsea Tafelski. Outlook: This Hurricane team will certainly have a new look, but theres a lot of promise. Were going to be young, Citrus coach Larry Bishop said. But weve got some good talent. Well play the first half of the season and find out who will play what. Hopefully, by the end of the season well be at our best. The return of Kelly Abramowich on the mound brightens Citrus picture considerably. The key for Citrus will lie in how fast the newcomers to the team become veterans. They must make an impact if the Hurricanes are to have a successful campaign. Crystal RiverLast season: 15-10 overall, losing to Dunnellon in the 5A-7 semifinals. Key returnees: Rachel Roe, P; Emily Laga, OF; Chloe Lane, OF. Marissa Pool, SS; Laynee Nadal, OF; McCale Wilson, P; Danielle Gomez, C; Bridget Whitley, Utility; Samantha Jenkins, 1B. Key newcomers: Kathryn DeSomma, 2B; Maegan McMichen, P/OF. Tiffany MacDonald, P. Key losses: Megan Unverdorben, Tabitha Augsburger, Brooke Levins. Outlook: Although Wentworth didnt coach Crystal River last year, shes been in this position before twice in fact, coaching the 2010 team before Dennis Jenkins took over in 2011. She certainly didnt return to a bare cupboard when it comes to experience and talent. Roe, McMichen and Wilson have all pitched for the Pirates, and Wentworth believes Pool to be a standout at shortstop. Laga and Nadal will anchor the outfield. We need solid offense, we need our defense to come together, and we need our pitchers to throw strikes, Wentworth said. Were trying to figure out what we do best, and were trying to figure out what will work for us. I think were strong enough to win the district. Crystal River opened its season with a 16-1 mercy-rule win over Ocala Trinity Catholic on Monday. Wilson was the winning pitcher, allowing one run in four innings. Seven Rivers Christian Last season: 2-16 overall, lost in District 2A-4 opening round. Key returnees: Katie Fenton, Jasmine Fisher, Allison Green, Milena Kacer, Sofia Leon, Melissa Manning, Kim Strong, Rebecca Wright, Maijah Franklin, Kim Iwaniec, Katie Dreyer, Alexis King, Gabby Wright Key newcomers: Alyssa Gage, Andrea Golliher, Shannon Hoey. Key losses: Catherine Strong. Outlook: The good news for the Warriors is that all the starters from last years team return. The bad news is last years team posted a 2-16 record. But to Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer, theres more good news than bad. Our record was not reflective of how good a team we were, he said. A lot of strange things happened last year, including injuries. Ill be very surprised if we dont have a winning record. The question is, was last season an aberration or the norm? In 2011, Seven Rivers was 9-7, so perhaps a winning record isnt so far fetched. Returning starters include Green, a catcher and twice the teams most valuable player, and Kacer, a pitcher, as well as Fenton, Leon, Dreyer and Gabby Wright. Also returning after missing all of last season is Rebecca Wright. Combined with the level of experience on the rest of the team, Gary Dreyers optimism seems logical. The softball season starts Monday for the Warriors with a game at Ocala Christian Academy.

She wrote that the familys exhaustive response to former FBI director Louis Freehs report for the university on the Sandusky child sex abuse case will officially be released to the public at 9 a.m. Sunday on paterno.com. Freeh in July accused Joe Paterno and three university officials of covering up allegations against Sandusky, a retired defensive coordinator. Less than two weeks later, the NCAA levied unprecedented sanctions on the program that Joe Paterno built into one of the most wellknown in college football. When the Freeh report was released last July, I was as shocked as anyone by the findings and by Mr. Freehs extraordinary attack on Joes character and integrity. I did not recognize the man Mr. Freeh described, Sue Paterno wrote. I am here to tell you as definitively and forcefully as I know how that Mr. Freeh could not have been more wrong in his assessment of Joe. The family directed its attorney, Washington lawyer Wick Sollers, to assemble experts to review Freehs findings and Joe Paternos actions, Sue Paterno wrote. She did not offer details on findings in the letter, except to say that they unreservedly and forcefully confirm my beliefs about Joes conduct. In addition, they present a passionate and persuasive critique of the Freeh report as a total disservice to the victims of Sandusky and the cause of preventing child sex offenses, Sue Paterno wrote. Sue Paterno said neither Freehs report, nor the NCAAs actions, should close the book on the scandal. This cannot happen, she wrote. The Freeh report failed and if it is not challenged and corrected, nothing worthwhile will have come from these tragic events. The Associated Press left messages Friday for representatives for Freeh.

Snedeker in contention Associated PressPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. Brandt Snedeker goes into the weekend at Pebble Beach with another chance to win, this time without golfs biggest stars in his way. Snedeker played bogey-free at tough Spyglass Hill on Friday for a 4-under 68, giving him a share of the lead with Ted Potter Jr. in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Potter three-putted his final hole at Monterey Peninsula for a 67. Hunter Mahan was among those one shot behind. With one more round before everyone has played all three courses in the rotation, the leaderboard was a big traffic jam. Three dozen players were within five shots of the lead. Snedeker, who was at 8-under 134, felt he was at an advantage because he goes to Pebble Beach for the final two rounds. And theres one other edge for his psyche Tiger Woods isnt playing, and defending champion Phil Mickelson is six shots behind. Snedeker has played so well this year that he is leading the FedEx Cup standings without having won. He was runner-up the last two weeks four shots behind Woods at Torrey Pines, and then four shots behind Mickelson in the Phoenix Open. Keep running into guys who are or who are going to be in the Hall of Fame, Snedeker said at the start of the week. Mickelson, going after a record-tying fifth win in the event, was easing his way into contention until he made three bogeys in a four-hole stretch along the ocean at Spyglass Hill for a 71. Snedeker made it look easy at Spyglass, even though the day began in rugged conditions with a light rain and temperatures in the low 40s. He hit a towering 8-iron on the downhill, par-3 12th hole that plopped 3 feet next to the cup for his first birdie. He added a pair of simple up-and-down birdies on the par 5s and then closed out a solid day with an 8-iron to 5 feet on the eighth hole. Snedeker sees the upside of his two second-place finishes: At least hes giving himself a chance. Thats how you win out here, he said. You keep putting yourself in position, and the more times you do, the more success youre going to have. ... Im doing a better job this week of making my way around the golf courses and not putting myself in bad spots and getting out of tough situations very quickly. His goal for the last two days? Not do anything stupid, he said. Unfortunately, I dont do it very often. Potter remains somewhat of a mystery. He won last year in his rookie season at The Greenbrier Classic to claim a peculiar footnote in history the only player to win a PGA Tour event in which Woods and Mickelson missed the cut. Still, his performance has been spotty. Potter missed nine out of the 12 cuts going into The Greenbrier, and then missed four out of nine cuts after his win. Champions TourBOCA RATON Bernhard Langer and Tom Pernice Jr. each shot 6-under 66 to tie for the first-round lead at the Allianz Championship. Langer, who holed out a bunker shot to win here in a playoff in 2010, birdied three of the last four holes at Broken Sound. Pernice was even through eight holes, but played the next six holes in six-under, including an eagle at No. 5 when he holed a pitching wedge from 128 yards, to charge into contention. Defending champion Corey Pavin, Roger Chapman, Fred Funk, Scott Simpson and two players making their Champions Tour debuts Rocco Mediate and Bart Bryant were a shot back after 67s. European TourJOHANNESBURG Trevor Fisher Jr. shot a 9-under 62 and Richard Sterne had a 65 Friday to share the lead after the second round of the Joburg Open. Fisher had an eagle and seven birdies, including a run of three straight in his back nine on the West Course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club. Sterne went bogey-free for the second consecutive round on the East Course. The South Africans were 15 under at the European Tour event.

Associated PressCLEVELAND Kyrie Irving scored 24 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated Orlando 119-108, sending the Magic to their 12th straight loss. Marreese Speights scored 18 points and Tristan Thompson added 16 for Cleveland, which scored 13 straight points in a stretch that began late in the third period to take control of the game. The Cavaliers scored the last eight points of the third quarter to go ahead 85-80. A basket by Shaun Livingston and a 3-pointer by Wayne Ellington put Cleveland ahead 90-80 early in the fourth. The Cavaliers scored 34 points in the final period. Nikola Vucevic scored a career-high 25 points for Orlando, which has lost 23 of 25. Arron Afflalo added 23 points and rookie Andrew Nicholson scored 21, but it wasnt enough for the Magic, who havent won since Jan. 16. Speights, who was 12 for 12 at the foul line, scored 12 points in the stretch that helped Cleveland take over. The Cavaliers, who tied a season high with their third straight victory, have won six of eight. Heat 111, Clippers 89 MIAMI LeBron James scored 30 points in another efficient performance, Dwyane Wade scored 20 and the Miami Heat dominated the middle two quarters on the way to an easy 111-89 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. James shot 9 for 11, giving him 37 makes on his last 47 attempts, and sat out the fourth quarter. It was his fourth straight 30-point game, tying him with Wade as the only Heat player with such streaks in the franchises 25-year history. Mario Chalmers finished with 18 points and Shane Battier scored 12 for Miami, which improved to 21-3 at home. The Clippers got Chauncey Billups, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin back from injuries, but that trio of starters combined for only 23 points. Wizards 89, Nets 74 WASHINGTON The Washington Wizards held the Brooklyn Nets without a field goal for nearly nine minutes during the first half, survived a second-half slump and held on for an 89-74 victory in their latest win over a team near the top of the standings. Nene had 20 points and 11 rebounds, John Wall added 15 points and nine assists, and Martell Webster scored 16 points for the Wizards, who have one of the worst records in the NBA but have nevertheless taken eight of their last nine at home. Deron Williams scored 20 points for the Nets, who lost to a sub-.500 team for only the second time this season. Lakers 100, Bobcats 93 CHARLOTTE, N.C. Kobe Bryant shrugged off a scoreless first half to finish with 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds and the Los Angeles Lakers overcome a 20-point second-half deficit to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 100-93. The Lakers avoided a costly defeat to the NBAs worst team and pulled within three games of .500. Bryant attempted only two shots in the first half and didnt bother coming out for warmups to start the second half. But he provided the jolt the Lakers needed in the third quarter and scored 14 points in the final period, including a driving layup with 40 seconds left to push the lead to five. Hornets 111, Hawks 100 ATLANTA Greivis Vasquez had his first career triple-double and Eric Gordon scored 27 points, leading New Orleans to a 111-100 victory over the Atlanta Hawks and a rare winning streak for the last-place Hornets. Vasquez scored 21 points, dished out 12 assists and grabbed 11 rebounds for New Orleans, which rallied from a 14-point deficit in the first half and withstood a late charge by the stumbling Hawks. Al Horford drove for a slam that cut the Hornets lead to 98-94 with 3 1/2 minutes remaining. But Ryan Anderson sank a 3-pointer that caught the front of the rim, bounced high off the backboard and fell through. Josh Smith led Atlanta with 23 points. Pistons 119, Spurs 109 AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Greg Monroe had 26 points and 16 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons snapped San Antonios 11-game winning streak with a 119-109 victory over the short-handed Spurs. San Antonio played without Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, and the Pistons led by as many as 21 points in the second quarter. Tony Parker scored 31 points for San Antonio and Kawhi Leonard added 16. Raptors 100, Pacers 98, OT INDIANAPOLIS Rudy Gay scored 17 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, leading the Toronto Raptors to a 100-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers. The game went into overtime after Amir Johnsons buzzer-beating tip-in stood following a replay review. The Raptors won it when Gay hit a 17-foot jumper with 1.7 seconds left and Paul Georges 15-footer rimmed out as the horn sounded. David West scored 30 points and George had 26 as the Pacers 15-game home winning streak came to an end. DeMar DeRozan scored 22 to make Toronto (18-32) the first team to win twice at Indiana (31-20) this season. Thunder 127, Phoenix 96 OKLAHOMA CITY Kevin Durant scored 21 points, Thabo Sefolosha had a season-high 18 and the Oklahoma City Thunder rode a gigantic third-quarter run to a 127-96 victory over the Phoenix Suns. All five Thunder starters had at least one basket during a 21-0 run that put Oklahoma City in position to complete a perfect homestand with a third straight blowout. Russell Westbrook had a right-handed slam during the run before finishing it off with a banked-in runner to stretch the lead to 81-55 with 3:25 to go in the third quarter. Phoenix even came out of a timeout with six players on the floor at one point during the stretch, but all that did was result in another point after Durant made the resulting technical foul. Knicks 100, Timberwolves 94MINNEAPOLIS Carmelo Anthony had 36 points and nine rebounds, scoring 12 points down the stretch to rally the New York Knicks to a 100-94 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Anthony topped 30 points for the 17th time this season for the Knicks, who trailed by 11 with seven minutes to play. But Anthony did all of his fourth-quarter damage in those final minutes, hitting a 19-footer with 1:10 to play that put New York up for good. Derrick Williams had 19 points and Ricky Rubio had 18 points and 11 assists for the Timberwolves, who lost for the 14th time in 16 games. Nikola Pekovic added 16 points and 11 rebounds, but Minnesota had no answer for Anthony down the stretch. Rockets 118, Trail Blazers 103HOUSTON James Harden had 35 points and 11 assists, Chandler Parsons scored 20 and the Houston Rockets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 118-103. Harden went 13 for 16 from the field and 4 of 5 from 3point range, putting on an individual show in the last game at the Toyota Center before the NBAs All-Star weekend comes to town. Harden was chosen as a reserve for the West squad, making his first All-Star team. LaMarcus Aldridge, another All-Star reserve for the West, scored 31 points for Portland. The Blazers had won the previous two meetings this season in overtime, rallying from double-digit deficits in both. Not this time. Houston preserved a comfortable lead for most of the second half, and Harden finished off Portland with a fadeaway jumper from the wing. Grizzlies 99, Warriors 93MEMPHIS, Tenn. Marc Gasol scored six of his 20 points down the stretch to help the Memphis Grizzlies defeat the Golden State Warriors 99-93. Gasol, who also grabbed 11 rebounds, was 9 of 14 from the field to help Memphis end a two-game slide. Tony Allen had 17 points on 7 of 8 shooting, Zach Randolph had 16 points and 12 rebounds, while Jerryd Bayless finished with 14 points. Austin Daye had 12 points for Memphis, providing a spark in the first half. Stephen Curry had 32 points and eight assists for the Warriors, who lost their third straight. David Lee was the only other Golden State player in double figures with 26 points, connecting on 10 of 16 shots. Memphis took over with nine unanswered points after consecutive 3-pointers from Curry gave the Warriors their last lead of the game with about 8 minutes left. S PORTSC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S ATURDAY, F EBRUARY9, 2013 B3 Associated PressIndianas latest run as No. 1 didnt last long, abruptly halted by a loss to unranked Illinois. Duke was bumped from the top spot twice in three weeks. Michigan and Louisville went one and done when their turns came. Its not lonely at the top, its getting crowded. With the Hoosiers expected tumble in the next poll, thatll be six straight weeks with a new No. 1, the second-longest streak since the first Associated Press poll in 1949. The way things have gone this season, coaches might start lobbying voters to not put their teams atop the ballot. I do think there will be a revolving door or chairs that we will have a new No. 1 or new top fives moving forward because anyone can beat anyone, Kansas coach Bill Self said Friday. There is no dominant team, but there are a lot of really good ones. Oddly enough, this season of jumbling started with stability at the top. Indiana was the preseason No. 1 and held there for the first five weeks before a 5-foot-11 walk-on from Butler named Alex, not David knocked Goliath from the top spot with a floater in overtime. Duke got the bump to No. 1 after that and stayed in place for four polls until North Carolina States fans stormed the court after a Blue Devil dumping in Raleigh on Jan. 12. Since then, No. 1 teams have perched on a precarious pedestal. After Dukes first loss, Louisville moved to No. 1. The Cardinals responded to prosperity with not just one loss, but three in a row and tumbled out of the top 10 within two weeks. The Blue Devils reclaimed the top spot in the Jan. 21 poll and promptly made Louisvilles lapse forgettable with a 90-63 crushing by Miami, the third-worst loss by a No. 1 ever. Next up, Michigan. The Wolverines actually managed to win a game as No. 1, beating Northwestern. The downward pull of parity punched Michigan in its next game, a road loss to Indiana that sent the Hoosiers back to the top. Indiana followed by getting caught up in the top-ranked turmoil in Champaign, inexplicably leaving Tyler Griffey open for an uncontested layup at the buzzer that sent hundreds of Illini fans streaming onto the floor and the Hoosiers toward a likely tumble down the poll. Thats a hard question. Im not sure, Indiana coach Tom Crean said of No. 1 teams struggling to stay on top. We played at a high level most of the game. The current string of No. 1 swapping is the longest since 1994, when Arkansas, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA and Duke alternated at the top seven straight weeks the longest streak since Saint Louis debuted as No. 1 in the initial AP poll. Top-ranked teams have lost six times this season overall, which isnt quite as rare; No. 1s lost nine times in 2008-09 and at least six times in a season since 199697, according to STATS INC. The topranked team also has lost to an unranked team twice this season, which has happened 10 times in that span. But it isnt just the teams at the top that are having trouble. Top 25 teams all over the country are getting knocked off by unranked opponents. According to STATS, Top 25 teams lost to unranked teams 36 times from Jan. 17 to Feb. 6 this season, most in at least 17 years. And some were quite ugly. Indiana was firmly in control Thursday night before allowing Illinois, a team that had lost six of its previous seven games, to close with a 13-2 run to pull off the upset. Florida would have been poised to take over the top spot, but bumbled its way through a game against Arkansas a day after moving up to No. 2 in the poll, losing by 11 to the unranked Razorbacks. Selfs Jayhawks were No. 2 in the poll two weeks ago, then lost to Oklahoma State at Allen Fieldhouse for the first time since 1989. Kansas followed that up with a real stinker, scoring 13 points in the first half of a loss to TCU that had Self calling his team the worst Kansas had put on the floor since Dr. James Naismith invented the game of basketball. With the latest jumbling at the top, Michigan (20-2), could be the next team to move to No. 1. Or maybe Duke (19-2) gets another shot. Who knows, maybe someone new like Gonzaga (21-2) or Arizona (19-2) moves to the top. Whoever gets there, no need to get comfortable. Chances are it wont last.

So we bumped everybody up and we had Brady Hayes win (us) a big point. Noah McGinnis came out and played for us at No. 4. And he won a big point. McGinnis defeated Weeki Wachees Jason Morton 8-4. Citrus No. 5 seed Joe Kelly continues his undefeated streak at his position (2-0 for the season thus far), winning a tightly contested match over Sam Kartuzinski 9-8. The doubles matches did not go the same way they did Tuesday for Citrus when it swept Lecanto. The opposite occurred Friday evening as Weeki Wachee claimed both contests. The No. 1 Citrus doubles team consisting of Everett and Pospiech were no match for Weeki Wachees Rosser and Mulleavey as the Hornet twosome dominated the day 8-2 over the Canes. It wasnt so lopsided in the No. 2 doubles match as McGinnis and Hayes pushed the Hornet team of Jensen and Morton to a tiebreaker in the final game before Weeki Wachee pulled out an 8-7 victory. In doubles, we almost could have won the decisive point, Martone said. Im just proud of them. Citrus defense. For Hurricanes coach Larry Bishop, whose team is now 2-1 overall, it was a nice bookend to a busy opening week of the season. Thats exactly what we expect from Kelly every time she goes out there, Bishop said. We were trying to put together a complete game. We had no errors, Bishop added, ... its one of those ballgames that everyone enjoys being a part of. Amy Abramowich, Kellys twin sister, drove in the lone runs of the contest on a two-run single with one out and the bases loaded in the third inning. Kelly Abramowich, who walked, and April Desomma, who singled, each scored on the hit. Emily Ferreira also singled in the frame. For Crystal River (1-1 overall), Tiffany MacDonald was the hard-luck loser; the Pirate pitcher tossed four innings total, just facing trouble in the fateful third inning. McCale Wilson relieved MacDonald and tossed three scoreless innings of relief. This is our first real competition, Crystal River coach Lanna Wentworth said. Our girls have a long way to go. After this, were just focusing on the rest of the season. With Kelly Abramowich toeing the rubber for the Hurricanes, Crystal River had to be nearly perfect. Unfortunately, the Pirates couldnt get anything going with its bats. Their pitcher pretty much owned us all night long, Wentworth said. We had our opportunities but we couldnt get any runs across the plate. Crystal River plays 6:30 p.m. Monday at Trinity Catholic while Citrus travels to Lake Weir for a 7 p.m. start Tuesday. In addition to the alley-oop assist, Franklin (15 points, six boards) had two steals down the stretch to help the Canes dominate the final 1:30 of overtime before West Port hit a pair of meaningless 3s in the waning seconds. When I saw everyone behind me, I thought about dunking it myself, but I thought it would look better if I threw it to Devin (Pryor), Franklin said on the highlight play. We practice it every day. With the game tied 20-20 midway through the second quarter, Citrus gradually built up a 28-22 advantage for the half. The Wolf Pack were 4-of17 from the floor in the second period, but stayed alive with an aggressive defense that yielded nine steals and a couple of blocked shots. The early half of the third quarter belonged to West Port as it erased its deficit and climbed to a 37-32 lead on a 3 by Maxwell with 4:35 remaining in the period. But Citrus kept its poise and stemmed the Wolf Pack rally before it turned into something like the 23-2 West Port push that overwhelmed the Canes earlier in the season. We were able to regain our footing and keep West Ports runs down to a reasonable level, Densmore said. The Canes took back the lead on a layup by Lynn with 3:10 to play in the fourth, and the teams exchanged buckets in the ensuing two minutes before going scoreless in the final minute.

It was only fitting Cotton Owens was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame by David Pearson, the driver who won him a championship and was a devoted friend long after their racing careers ended. Pearson, a member of the second class for the Hall, inducted former driver and car owner Owens in Friday nights ceremony. Owens died at 88 in June, weeks after learning he had been voted into the Halls fourth class. His inclusion was pushed for by both Pearson and Bud Moore, a member of the inaugural class. The two were among Owens closest friends and the three were nearly inseparable around Spartanburg, S.C. He was a good guy, and my friend, and one of the best friends I had, Pearson said. Every Sunday after church Id go pick him up, been that way for years. Everybody thought when we were split up we were mad at each other. Pearson won 27 races driving for Owens, as well as the 1966 championship. Owens won nine races as a driver, then transitioned into ownership. He finished second in points in 1959 to Hall of Famer Lee Petty, and won more than 100 races in NASCARs modified division. He was named one of NASCARs 50 greatest drivers in 1998. In our family book, there was no better racer than Cotton Owens, grandson Kyle Davis said in accepting Owens induction. He took great pride in the fact he could build a car from the ground up. ... He was a wizard turning wenches and behind the wheel. Herb Thomas was remembered as a hard worker who never forgot his farming roots during his induction. Thomas was the first of the five inductees honored in a class that also included former champions Buck Baker, Rusty Wallace and innovative mechanic and crew chief Leonard Wood. Thomas induction was opened by current NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, and was accepted by Thomas son, Joel. Thomas, the first driver to win two NASCAR championships, died in 2000. A two-time champion at NASCARs top level, he also finished second in points twice and ended the year in the top two in four consecutive seasons from 1951-54. Thomas won 48 races and ranks 13th on the career wins list. Joel Thomas said his father returned to working on the family tobacco farm in Olivia after his retirement. He was always kind and fair to everyone, and wasnt afraid of hard work, Joel Thomas said. He operated his own saw mill and almost 50 years later was excited to teach me how to run it. When dad finally retired from racing in 1962, he worked on the farm with his family for many years. Those were wonderful years. Owens honored by friend Pearson at HOF Associated Press Former NASCAR driver Buddy Baker flashes a thumbs-up to the media Friday as he arrives for the induction of his father, Buck Baker, into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C.

KENS CALL: Trust me, if Junior had to sell newspapers or TV commercials, hed think it was the greatest thing since Harry met Sally.SPEED FREAKSA couple of questions we just had to ask ourselvesfacebook.com/ nascardaytona @nascardaytona news-journalonline. com/nascarONLINE EXTRAS FEUD OF THE WEEK Ashley behind the wall? Say it aint so Sorry, but yes, it appears that longtime open-wheel star Dario Franchitti has split with his wife, actress Ashley Judd. Therefore, for fans on the stock-car side of the tracks, one of the remaining reasons to watch IndyCar has apparently lawyered up and packed the hauler. The split isnt a rst among racers, but this probably is: News of the split was made of cial in a statement to People Magazine. Kinda glad Chris Economaki isnt around to hear that. Why does the name Tyler Walker sound familiar?He ran some NASCAR in Trucks and Nationwide before a drug suspension six years ago. He won big in open-wheel dirt-track stuff before that, including the World of Outlaws, where his post-victory back ips inspired Carl Edwards to begin the same practice (remember when Carl had reason to back ip?). Anyway, Walker was arrested last week after a high-speed chase that stretched from Nevada to Arizona and nally Utah. If hed done that 50 years ago, hed be a legendary renegade. Today, hes a defendant. Is Bill Romanowski in for the long haul?When it comes to NFL stars getting into NASCAR, there have been many more shorttimers (Dan Marino, Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, etc.) than keepers (Joe Gibbs). So dont look for Romos NASCAR tenure to rival his 16-year NFL career. But if sponsorship from his supplement company (Nutrition53) increases Swan Racings start-to-park ratio, itll be time well spent.Ken Willis has been covering NASCAR for The Daytona Beach News-Journal for 27 years.

AP/MATT SAYLES One of IndyCars biggest stars (and Dario Franchitti, of course).News-Journal le photoHe grew up in Daytona Beach and was known as Fireball Is it any wonder he was fast? WEEKLY DRIVER RANKINGS BASED ON BEHAVIOR AND PERFORMANCE Franchitti Judd Chip Ganassi is the only car owner to have entries in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, IZOD IndyCar Series and Grand-Am Rolex Series. Ganassi Racing has kicked carburetor in IndyCar and Grand-Am for the past decade. His sports-car team just won the Rolex 24 At Daytona. In the stock-car garage, Ganassi has struggled, particularly his team led by driver Juan Pablo Montoya. Ganassi said he wanted Montoya to drive the last stint in the 24 with the hopes it would kick-start Montoyas NASCAR fortunes in 2013. This was the exchange with the media following the Rolex 24: First, how did it work out that (Montoya) was going to be the last guy in the car? Was that just the rotation of it, or you speci cally wanted him? Second, you alluded to this, how does this help him going forward with the Sprint Cup season and with NASCAR stuff coming up? You know, we sit down at the beginning of the race and we have a driver rotation. But the good thing about Timmy Keene, he runs that team week in and week out, and he calls the shots on that car. You know, he changes it up for whatever reason, and then its not the rst time hes done that. Everybody contributed, and everybody was a part of the victory, and it just happened to work out that way that we wanted to be you know, its important at different times of the race when youre looking at other people and who theyre putting in their car, what the other team rotations are. Thats a part of it. Youre looking at other team rotations, youre looking at your own team and how your night is going, how youre going at dawn, you know, whos having a good race. You leave a guy in for an extra stint or two, and if hes having a good night, things are smooth, hes calm, hes feeling good these cars are not people friendly these cars are not easy to drive for long periods of time. The forces that get put on your body and what have you. Some of the guys I have are up there in years and they have back issues and things, so if things are good, we leave them in, and if theyre not, we take them out. Going forward, obviously when you start off with any kind of victory, I mean, I think the rst thing I said to him when he crossed the nish line, I said, Hey, man, welcome back to Victory Lane. Thats a big shot in the arm for any driver in any series to start off the season with a win, and obviously its a completely different car than hes driving on a full-time basis, but a win is a win, and it all adds up and it all means something. Theres not a driver out there thatll tell you its not a motivating factor to start the season off with a win.Ganassi hopes Rolex 24 win sparks Montoya ROLEX 24 REWIND Dario Franchitti vs. Ashley Judd: The celebrity race driver/actress couple announced they plan to divorce this year. Godwin Kelly gives his take: Franchitti made 10 Sprint Cup starts, and Judd was always around in her cotton dresses. Judd will be greatly missed. JIMMIE JOHNSON Considering a spring shave BRAD KESELOWSKI Has his own version of the Lombardi Trophy RUSTY WALLACE And another (his speech will last a week) MATT KENSETH Finding Joeys old Juicy Juice boxes everywhere HERB THOMAS A nod to a new Hall of Famer TONY STEWART Will White Castle supply last the winter? JUNIOR EARNHARDT Shares hometown with funk god George Clinton DENNY HAMLIN First name is actually James JEFF GORDON Thinks George Clinton was Bills brother BUCK BAKER And another SPRINT CUP SCHEDULE Mark Martin is a ve-time runner-up in the Sprint Cup Series points race. He has also never won the Daytona 500. His closest brush with 500 glory came in 2007, when he lost a drag race to the checkered ag against Kevin Harvick. Heading into the 2013 season, Martin can erase those two voids. Well, kinda. Obviously, Martin has a decent chance of winning the Feb. 24 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway, driving the No. 55 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota. But did you know that Martin, who shares the No. 55 with Brian Vickers and Waltrip, can run for championship honors? Not the drivers championship but the car owners championship. While the top 12 drivers after 26 races go into the Chase championship, the owners points formula doesnt change, which means Martins 24 starts in the No. 55 could spearhead a run for the title. Vickers has the wheel nine times, Waltrip three. It cant happen, you say? In the 2008 Nationwide Series, Clint Bowyer won the drivers title for Richard Childress while Jack Roush captured the car owners championip, using multiple drivers. Stewart using Pearsons pathSome believe David Pearson was NASCARs greatest stock-car driver based on his percentage of victories to starts and the fact that he ran for Cup Series championship honors four times and won three titles. Pearsons treasured 1976 Daytona 500 victory took two decades of trying. He won the Firecracker 250/400 (now Coke Zero 400) four times before earning his only 500 trophy. Fast-forward to 2013 and we nd 41-year-old Tony Stewart sitting on four 400 wins and running out of at-bats in the 500. This will be his 15th attempt. Stewart can take some comfort from Dale Earnhardts career playbook. The Intimidator won the 500 on his 20th attempt.Run on dirtIn an effort to pump new life into the Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR scheduled a race on the dirt July 24 at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. It appears to have worked. The track announced a grandstand sellout last week. For those venturing to Speedweeks in Daytona Beach for the Feb. 22 Truck race, you might want to also plan a trip to Volusia Speedway Park, about 20 miles from the big track. Apparently, a load of Truck regulars plan to play in the dirt a couple of nights to get a feel for the slip-andslide-style of racing.

Cooper skips trip to NY for Dyngus Day BUFFALO, N.Y. CNNs Anderson Cooper wont be in Buffalo, N.Y., to celebrate the citys heritage on Dyngus Day, a holiday that made his shows Ridiculist and left him giggling uncontrollably on the air last year. Dyngus Day is a PolishAmerican day-afterEaster tradition celebrating the end of Lent. It features people playfully sprinkling each other with water and swatting one another with pussy willows to show their amorous interest. Through a protracted fit of laughter last year, Cooper said, Its so stupid, really so stupid. He later said he was referring to his giggling, not the holiday. Organizers set up a website to try to persuade Cooper to attend and offered to name him the festivals first pussy willow prince. But Cooper tweeted Thursday hes really sad he wont be able to. He said it sounds like a lot of fun. Cromwell arrested at Wis. regents meeting MADISON, Wis. Actor James Cromwell has been arrested for allegedly disrupting a University of Wisconsin Board of Regents meeting where he was protesting animal testing. University police Sgt. Brent Gruber said the 73-year-old Cromwell was arrested and ticketed on a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Cromwell and an activist from an animal-rights group also arrested were released from jail by Thursday afternoon. They held two large signs showing a cat with metal implanted in its head at a UWMadison lab, while shouting about the treatment of cats Thursday morning. The director of the schools Research Animal Resources Center said federal agriculture officials have found their claims to be false. Cromwell was nominated for an Academy Award for the 1995 film Babe. Other credits include L.A. Confidential, The Green Mile and The Artist. Porn star Jeremy in hospital a while LOS ANGELES Porn star Ron Jeremys agent said the prolific actor will likely stay at a Los Angeles hospital a while to recover from an aneurysm near his heart. Agent Mike Esterman said Jeremy isnt allowed to receive visitors or deliveries following a procedure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last week. Esterman said he doesnt expect the 59-year-old to leave the hospital for some time. Jeremy had a heavy feeling in his chest and drove himself to the hospital last Wednesday. Associated PressNEW YORK Grammy nominee Ryan Truesdell felt like a jazz archaeologist as he sifted through thousands of pages of manuscripts in a safe in the apartment of renowned jazz arranger Gil Evans, best known for his collaborations with trumpeter Miles Davis. The 32-year-old Truesdells two-year odyssey would take him to university music archives and the personal collections of musicians who worked with Evans. He eventually discovered more than 50 previously unrecorded arrangements by Evans, who died in 1988. Truesdells mentor and Evans former assistant, arranger-composer Maria Schneider, likened his find to buying an old house only to discover a box of lost Beethoven manuscripts in the attic. Schneider encouraged him to bring the arrangements to life. He raised money through the fan-funding ArtistShare platform and self-produced his debut album as a leader, Centennial: Newly Discovered Works of Gil Evans, released May 13, 2012 Evans 100th birthday. Centennial includes 10 previously unrecorded Evans arrangements. Half of them date to Evans formative years with the Claude Thornhill Orchestra in the late s and s when he experimented with introducing classical influences to large ensemble jazz. The time span stretches to 1971 with a version of Kurt Weills Barbara Song and a 19-minute medley of three Evans tunes the arranger wrote for his 24-piece dream band including instruments not typically found in a jazz big band such as oboe, bassoon and English horn. Now, Centennial has been nominated for three Grammys at Sundays awards show in Los Angeles. Truesdell got a nod for best large jazz ensemble album. Evans was posthumously nominated for best instrumental arrangement for How About You, a 1947 chart for the Thornhill band, and instrumental arrangement accompanying vocalist(s) for Look to the Rainbow, performed by Brazilian singer Luciana Souza, originally written for Astrud Gilbertos 1965 album of the same name, but never used. Truesdell became infatuated with Evans music as a Madison, Wis., high school student when he came across Davis 1958 Porgy and Bess album while searching for recordings by saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. After receiving his masters degree in jazz composition at the New England Conservatory of Music, Truesdell began immersing himself in Evans music for selfish reasons to hone his composing and arranging skills. His search for original scores led him to Evans widow, Anita, and her sons, Miles and Noah. Miles Evans, who now leads the Gil Evans Orchestra, said Truesdells passion for the music led the family to make him the first person to receive full access to the archives stored in his fathers apartment in the Westbeth Artists Community in Greenwich Village. Truesdell, who coproduced Schneiders Grammy-winning 2007 album Sky Blue, used ArtistShare so he could retain artistic control and perform Evans music exactly as he intended it to be played. Many of the featured soloists such as saxophonists Steve Wilson and Donny McCaslin, clarinetist Scott Robinson and pianist Frank Kimbrough are musicians Truesdell worked with in Schneiders orchestra. Truesdell said at times he was ready to throw in the towel, but Evans spirit kept him going. I brought a picture of Gil conducting in the studio with Miles and taped it on my conductors podium, so I always had Gil right there, Truesdell said. You cant play this music live without having Gil present. Hidden treasures Birthday A number of impressive changes are likely to be made to your game plan in the year ahead.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Youre not going to find a better day to start the diet or exercise program youve been promising yourself youd begin. The odds are better than usual that youll reach your goal. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It appears youll get your chance to exercise greater management of something in which youve wanted to play a more active role. Dont hesitate to assert yourself. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A constructive adjustment that could have an effect on your entire family can be made. Even if not everybody is ready to participate, theyll hop on board later. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It would help you immensely to make your immediate plans more concise and orderly. Put your focus only on the things you intend to complete within the next two weeks. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be alert for financial trends that could be personally rewarding. However, dont expect an immediate harvest from what you plant now; give it some time to mature.

Spotlight on PEOPLE Florida LOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 E NTERTAINMENT Page B6 SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2013 C HRIS T ALBOTT AP music writer NASHVILLE, Tenn. Chances are you never heard of Al Walser before his surprise Grammy nomination for best dance recording. Even more surprising? Neither had most Grammy voters. For the second year in a row, the Grammys are facing criticism for allowing a nominee in a field where some said he lacks credibility. Walsers inclusion along with better-known artists Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, Calvin Harris and Skrillex set off complaints about The Recording Academys Grammy365 social media platform that allows members to lobby each other when it comes time to vote. Critics pointed out the problem when little-known singersongwriter Linda Chorney scored a nomination in the Americana category last year and took up the cry again this year when Walsers I Cant Live Without You popped up in the dance category. Bill Freimuth, The Recording Academys vice president of awards, said the social media program is working as intended, allowing independent and less well-known artists to raise their profile. But its likely the Grammy365 program will be continually tweaked over time and is being looked at by a subcommittee that could make recommendations for changes in the future. One change was made last year: Members were able to opt out of receiving the numerous pitches that come from The Recording Academys thousands of members during the balloting period. Walser has taken a lot of heat over the nomination, but feels like he used the system as it was designed and Grammy officials concur. He makes no apologies and notes artists at major labels use tools like publicists to promote their work. The Grammy365 site is simply another tool, and one that is becoming increasingly well known. Sunshine said the Grammys could suffer a real blow in the eyes of the EDM community if Walser were to win at the Feb. 10 awards show in Los Angeles. He said the short list of acts snubbed by Walsers inclusion starts and ends with French DJ and producer David Guetta, an international star with several hits to choose from during the nominating period. Not everyone agrees Walser derailed the process, however. Rich Bengloff, President of the American Association of Independent Music, said Walsers inclusion is a sign the Grammys has things right, not wrong.

Tips on tipping T he headline caught my eye Why are Christians such bad tippers? It was a story responding to something that recently went viral on the Internet when a restaurant server was fired after posting a copy of a customers credit card receipt online. Apparently, a pastor in St. Louis ate at an Applebees and when her bill came she scratched out the 18 percent gratuity that is often standard restaurant policy for large groups and wrote a big zero, adding, I give God 10 percent, why do you get 18? She signed it Pastor Alois Bell. I cant begin to tell you how insanely furious that made me when I first heard about it, for a number of reasons. My youngest daughter has been a restaurant server for more than a decade, and she says church people are some of the worst customers. She says many not all, but even one is too many are whiny and demanding. They ask rude questions such as, Why See GRACE / Page C4 Sex trumps doctrine, again B ack in 1969, the same year as Woodstock, Gallup Poll researchers asked Americans this moral question: Do you think it is wrong for a man and a woman to have sexual relations before marriage, or not? Yes, wrong, responded 68 percent of those polled, while 21 percent said, No, not wrong. By 1973, the traditionalist total affirming that premarital sex was wrong was down to 47 percent and the minority of those disagreeing rose to 43 percent. In 1991, only 40 percent considered premarital sex immoral, with 54 percent disagreeing. Anyone paying attention to the moral math could see the trend. By 2001 the number of Americans who took the conservative stance was leveling off at 38 percent, but the percentage of those embracing the liberal, progressive position was up to 60 percent. The numbers were relatively flat in 2011, See SEX / Page C5 Nancy Kennedy GRACE NOTES Terry Mattingly ON RELIGION P AULD UNN Times-News TWIN FALLS, IdahoT hey call themselves the Jew Crew. And now they have a Facebook page to prove it. Its a way to put something out there for people to contact us, said Robin Dober, who is known with her husband Tony Prater as the go-to person for all things Jewish in Twin Falls. Which, incidentally, isnt much, yet. Though the couple call the citys Jews a close-knit family, Prater estimates Twin Falls is home to only about 50 of the faith and so far, four Facebook friends. Prater, who designed and inaugurated the page on Jan. 14, isnt disappointed. I havent had a real vehicle yet to get it (Facebook page) out to the Jewish community, he said. We are an outreach for Jewish people in Boise and the Wood River Valley and people elsewhere who can connect with the Jewish community here if they want to. Prater designed another Facebook page in 2010 called Jews in Southern Idaho, but eventually discontinued it in favor of the current more clearly defined version. The first one was just too broad and drew people from a too-wide range of places, he said. The 54-year-old Twin Falls native and Dober, 48, are resolute in the face of a daunting reality: Twin Falls has no synagogue and no rabbi, and is unlikely to get either in the near future. But they and other active members of Beth Chaverim, the name Prater coined in December 2011 for Twin Falls Jewish congregation, stick together like matzo balls in chicken broth. The title in Hebrew means house of friends, and is reflected in the Facebook pages name: Beth Chaverim of Southern Idaho. I chose the name because we are a house of friends, and people feel a real warmth and welcoming in it, said Prater, who as the congregations lay leader presides over services and prayers when fellow Jews gather, usually about once a month. The latest gathering celebrated a local bar mitzvah a coming-of-age ceremony for Jewish boys though members also routinely celebrate Jewish holidays such as Passover, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Hanukkah and Sukkot.

Bennett and his wife, Luella, came to Crystal River in 1883, one of the first things they did was start a church. On their first Sunday as new residents, they started a Sunday school under a pine tree in their front yard, inviting the local saw mill workers to attend Sunday services, gospel singing and Bible reading under a tent. Fast-forward 130 years, First Presbyterian Church of Crystal River is still alive and well, serving God by serving the community. At 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, the public is invited to join the congregation at special anniversary worship service. The church is at 1501 SE U.S. 19, Crystal River. The original church, built in 1889, still stands, said Kristi Rosende, First Presbyterians clerk of session. Its now Calvary Baptist Church on Ninth Street over by the middle school. Rosende said Sundays anniversary service will feature music from various periods in the churchs history, as well as some people dressing in period outfits. Also, they will be using what remains of the antique furniture from the original church the original pulpit, two chairs, a communion table, candlesticks and a cross. Leading up to this weve been having what we call A Minute from the Minutes where we read things from the minutes from various years, she said. Thats how they learned that in the 1950s the church had Easter sunrise service at the beach and they would haul their organ all the way there and back. This year the church will use their recently built outdoor sanctuary area for Easter sunrise service. For more information about the church, visit online at www.fpcofcrystal river.com.

SERVICING THE COMMUNITIES OF CITRUS SPRINGS, BEVERLY HILLS, BROOKSVILLE, DUNNELLON, INVERNESS 000DJMO arent you in church? if shes working on a Sunday. (Um, so I can wait on you?) She said when she asked one customer if shed like a glass of wine with her meal the woman sat upright and said, Young lady, Im a Christian and I dont drink wine. My daughter said she bit her tongue to keep from saying, Jesus drank wine are you saying youre better than Jesus? She said she also wanted to say, Well, maybe if you did have some wine you wouldnt be so mean. Also, she said church people like to leave gospel tracts with their stingy tips sometimes tracts that look like real money. Id say unless youre leaving a generous tip, dont do that. What bothered me about the pastors comment on her bill where do I even start? How about thinking her tithe of 10 percent absolves her from her duty to give to others? Many restaurant servers earn well below minimum wage and depend on tips to pay their rent and feed their families. How about her arrogance by calling herself pastor but not acting with humility, mercy and kindness? It turned out that after the Internet backlash the pastor apologized for her lapse in my character and judgment, as she told The Smoking Gun. She said she realized her comment on the receipt brought embarrassment to her church and her ministry. Id add that it probably made God blush, except God knows that his people are sinful and hes not at all surprised when we act sinfully. Still, if we want to call ourselves Christians, and if we want others to be attracted to Christ, we have to stop being so arrogant and obnoxious in Jesus name. In the Why are Christians such bad tippers? story, the writer, Karen Prior, made an interesting point, that Christians are among the most sacrificially giving people and there must be something deeper than just stinginess going on when it comes to meager tipping. Prior suggested it has more to do with bad theology than bad manners. She said (and I agree) that many Christians divide the world into secular or worldy and sacred or spiritual, thus elevating what they consider to be spiritual and demonizing what they consider to be secular. Therefore, giving to Gods work is considered good because its spiritual and using money on secular activities, such as eating out, is less good. Also in this line of thinking, certain occupations are higher (pastors), which makes others lesser (restaurant servers). Im not a theologian, but I dont think God uses the same separations as we do. I dont think he considers giving our money to a Christian charity better than leaving a tip for a server who puts up with our bad manners. In fact, he might consider that even better. The Bible tells those who call themselves Christ followers: So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God (1 Corinthians 10:30-32). Maybe in Gods eyes everything we do is spiritual; everything we do, whether its in church or in a restaurant, reflects his name. Maybe if we remember that we wouldnt turn so many off to Jesus.

Things have been pretty steady recently among the Americans who are religiously active, noted Ed Stetzer, the president of LifeWay Research, which is linked to the 16 million-member Southern Baptist Convention. The real action has been on the other side of the spectrum, among the people who are atheists, or agnostics, or who have no affiliation with any particular religious group. Then you have the people that I call the mushy middle, who remain connected to some religious faith, sort of, but not active in any real sense of the word. ... Thats where were seeing people changing their minds on sexuality. The results of a recent LifeWay survey suggest that Americans who have, in recent decades, embraced premarital sex as a moral norm are continuing to edit their beliefs to go with the flow of the Sexual Revolution. The hot-button issue at the moment, of course, is same-sex marriage. This is a political and cultural puzzle that for believers in various world religions is closely connected to a number of ancient doctrines linked to sexual morality. According to a November 2012 survey by LifeWay, only 37 percent of adults in the United States affirmed traditional teachings that homosexual behavior is sinful. This finding was significant since 44 percent took that stance in another survey asking the same question only 14 months earlier. The number of respondents saying, I dont know also rose 4 percent, to 17 percent. What happened in between? The researchers were very aware, said Stetzer, that halfway between these two surveys President Barack Obama announced a longexpected change of heart and openly endorsed same-sex marriage. While the presidents words may have helped move some of the numbers, the change among African-Americans appeared to be minimal, with 36 percent saying homosexual acts were sinful in the first survey and 34 percent in the survey 14 months later. That shift was within the surveys margin of error. As would be expected, Americans identifying as born-again, evangelical or fundamentalist Christians were at 73 percent most likely to call homosexual behavior a sin. Only 33 percent of Catholics in this survey agreed. A clear pew gap also emerged, as usual, with 87 percent of those who said they attend worship services once a week or more affirming the traditional doctrinal stance. On the other side, only 17 percent of those who said they never attend worship services said that homosexual behavior is a sin. In light of these trends, its easy to see why the Rev. Louie Giglio, an evangelical leader in campaigns against human trafficking, was accused of anti-gay rhetoric and forced to withdraw from giving the benediction at the second Obama inauguration rite. In a sermon recorded 15 years earlier, Giglio had said: If you look at the counsel of the word of God Old Testament, New Testament you come quickly to the conclusion that homosexuality is not an alternate lifestyle. ... Homosexuality is sin. It is sin in the eyes of God, and it is sin according to the word of God. Clearly, these words are highly offensive to defenders of the Sexual Revolution. Indeed, times have changed. Giglios words, said Stetzer, were simply mainstream evangelical expressions of what traditional Christians have believed for 2,000 years. ... But what we are learning is that a growing majority of Americans no longer feel comfortable with words like sin.

Come on over to His house, your spirits will be lifted !!! 000DSZ4 gel in 2006 after a freak car accident left several traveling Israeli camp counselors stranded, and one hospitalized, in Twin Falls. Dober and Prater opened their home to the youngsters, and when they left after about a week, Dober had an epiphany. I realized that there was a reason I was here in Twin Falls, sort of like a stranger in a strange land, and that was to be the person who pulls the Jewish community together, Dober said. Dober moved to Twin Falls 14 years ago to be with Prater. She spent much of her childhood in Connecticut and had been in Boston for about 12 years prior to her move west. I missed the sense of Jewish community I had back East, and the Israeli kids rekindled that sense in me, she said. It did not occur to me that there would be no Jewish community here when I moved. Hansen resident Ann Alvarez, 69, another member of the Jew Crew, met Dober in 2003 and was soon in the fold of the fledgling Jewish community. Its interesting how it all came about, because all of us has a little piece of it and a story that revolves around Tony and Robin, Alvarez said. Traditionally, we have all gotten together through word of mouth. Twin Falls history, however, points to a far stronger Jewish presence and this not so long ago. There were a lot of Jewish businesses in town in the late s and early s, Prater said. I went to school with all of these Jewish kids whose families had these businesses. But it didnt last. As more and more Jewish students went off to college and never returned, the vibrant Jewish connection suffered. The Jewish community went from decent to nothing in no time, Prater said. Now, though, some other Jewish people are showing up in town that we havent seen before and didnt know existed. And once word of the congregations new Facebook page gets out, the couple hopes the Jew Crew will continue to expand. It would be nice if there were more people to share the outreach responsibilities so we could grow the community, Dober said. And all those kids who attended college 35 years ago and never returned to Twin Falls? The Jew Crew wants to avoid that this time. I think its important that our younger adults and children become part of our group so it will carry on, Prater concluded. And hes hoping the new Facebook page might just do the trick.

This class, the way I understand it, is a group of people who go through skills training, group skills and are informed of current issues, community resources and the future of Citrus County. My wife, Kathryn, who is now the development director of The Path, went through the course in 2010 and was thrilled with what she learned. Some of the stops of the tour during the several weeks of training included places like ours you might not be aware of, and the details of the operation. I was amazed at how good their questions were. They seemed to have a very good grasp about the food, how it helps the shelter and the importance of social enterprise for the future of The Path and for Citrus County. Most were not aware of the depth and the amount of food that was being grown on our 10 acres (soon to be 15). After showing them one of our homemade machines, we all went into the field to sample the fresh food right at our fingertips. This was an adventure for some; never to have experienced eating their food live. We can do this because we do not use any sprays like pesticides. This is when we believe most of the vitamins are present. This group had one question that kept popping up: What about vertical growing or what is being termed hydroponics? This is what I have boiled it down to in the years of farming. It is very difficult and even impossible for man to recreate what nature does. You may be somewhat successful in producing something similar, but in my experience, it is at a greater cost and you wont get the results you thought you would. Here it is simply; if you have the land, farm the old-fashioned way. It is the best way to get your nutrients. Otherwise, you are binding yourself to chemical inputs. Right now, we are turning down land because we do not have enough labor and we are looking for interns where we pay for the room and board in exchange for the labor for the farm as it is. Vertical farming or not! As for the leadership group, I hope I inspired them as much as they inspired me. What a great group of people and ideas coming up in our county. We should be proud. Four people in the group called my wife and signed up for the cooperative that night. There is still time to sign up for the spring crop and come to the March 1 meeting, and help support social enterprise in Citrus County. Call 352-527-6500, ext. 5.

S ATURDAY, F EBRUARY9, 2013 C7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Henry David Thoreau said, When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest. Many years ago, an expert married couple played together, and whenever the wife was the declarer, the husband turned on his portable CD player. As you might have guessed, they are not still married. But if running tunes through your mind helps you to relax and think more clearly, do it. In todays deal, what do you think of the bidding? After West leads his fourth-highest heart against three no-trump, what should South do? The South hand has only 19 high-card points, but it has a very good five-card suit, one 10 and two nines. It also has seven control points (ace 2; king 1), which is normal for a two-no-trump opening. So I agree with Souths bid. And North, with 4-3-3-3 distribution, was playing the percentages in not using Stayman. Declarer starts with seven top tricks: four spades, one heart, one diamond and one club. And there are at least three more winners available from the club suit. The original declarer, though, was tone-deaf. Thinking West had led away from the heart king, South played low from the board. However, East won with his king and shifted to the diamond king. Declarer ducked, took the next diamond, crossed to dummy with a heart, and ran the club jack. But when the finesse lost, the contract went down two. If South had been humming, he would have won the first trick with dummys heart ace and taken the club finesse. Then he would have won at least 10 tricks.

I told my kids if they didnt pick up their messes, I would hire a maid. One day, they came home to a clean, organized house. I said the maid had come. When I handed out my childrens allowance for the week, I took back the money it cost to hire the maid. I then told them that the maid was going to the mall to buy herself something really nice. I came home with a new top and thanked my kids for making the maid so happy. From then on, I just had to remind my kids that if they didnt pick up after themselves, I would hire the maid again. Honolulu Housewife Dear Honolulu: We love it. Heres more: From Louisiana: My psychologist said, You teach people how to treat you. This starts when your children are born. A parent has to tolerate poor behavior from the beginning, or their children would not expect to get away with such deplorable actions. Illinois: Nagging is not part of a parents job. Nagging is a contest of wills. At an early age, parents should instill in the child what is proper and correct. There are developmental tasks that a person learns throughout life, and if those tasks are not learned at the critical points, it becomes much more difficult. The parent is not a buddy, but a person who is due respect and obedience. Tired should count the days until the kids are 18, and if they dont shape up, invite them to move out. Georgia : We got our teens to help with chores by making sure their chores were done as a condition for getting to use the car on the weekend. Missouri: When our children reached the age of 10, they were told to pick up their clothes, make their beds, put their dishes in the dishwasher, help set the table and do other tasks. There was no nagging. If my son didnt put his dirty clothes in the hamper, I simply picked them up, folded them and put them back in his drawers. His breakfast was served on the same dishes he had not placed in the dishwasher the night before. If he didnt put his towels in the laundry, they were used until they could walk on their own. Wyoming: I agree that my kids bedrooms were their responsibility, but I would no longer allow them to trash the common areas. If they left dirty dishes in the living room, I assumed they still wanted them, so I would take the dishes to their rooms. If they left toys or clothes in the common areas, I assumed they didnt care about them and threw them out. I had some major backlash, but it worked. It was a joy to see them scrambling around in the morning cleaning up their stuff before they left for the day. Florida: You were right on when you said to close the kids bedroom doors and teach them how to do laundry. And enforce the rule that anything left in a common area when you go to bed will be confiscated. They can earn it back by doing chores. New York: Your advice to close the door to a teenagers messy room is totally wrong. I finally had to move out of my home because of my sloppy 22year-old stepdaughters disrespect and her dads lack of responsibility. He would ask her to please wash her dishes with hot soapy water, but she would use the stale water left in the basin from the night before, and I would have to rewash them. The only way I knew things were clean was if I washed them. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Coptic Christian pope discusses constitution AL-MUHARRAQ MONASTERY, Egypt Egypts Coptic Christian pope sharply criticized the countrys Islamist leadership in an interview with The Associated Press, saying the new constitution is discriminatory and Christians should not be treated as a minority. The comments by Pope Tawadros II reflected the unusually vocal political activist stance he has taken since being enthroned in November as the spiritual leader of the Copts, the main community of Egypts Christians. His papacy comes as Christians are increasingly worried over the power of Islamists in the country and the rule of President Mohammed Morsi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood. Tawadros dismissed a national dialogue that Morsi has been holding, ostensibly as a way to broaden decision-making amid criticism that his government concentrates power in the Brotherhood. Most opposition parties have refused to join the dialogue, as has the Coptic Church, calling it mere window dressing. Imams visit Holocaust site in France DRANCY, France Dozens of French imams have visited a Holocaust memorial in Drancy in an effort to show Islam is a tolerant religion. The Muslim leaders, who traveled from all over France, gathered Monday night at the site of the former detention camp where around 65,000 Jews were held before being deported to extermination camps, mainly to Auschwitz, during World War II. The event, the first of its kind since the Drancy memorial opened last September, was attended by Interior Minister Manuel Valls who said it shows that dialogue, tolerance and the understanding of other religions is indispensable in fighting against anti-Semitism and fanaticism. Some imams present traveled to Israel last year to pray at the tomb of the Jewish children gunned down in Toulouse last March by Mohamed Merah. New Notre Dame bells make history PARIS The cathedral of Notre Dame French for our lady has finally got the prima donna worthy of its name. Weighing in at six and a half tons or 6,000 kilograms of glistening bronze, this lady is no ordinary person: shes a bell named Mary. Mary is in fact the largest and loudest of nine new, gargantuan Notre Dame bells being blessed Saturday in the cathedrals nave by Archbishop Andre Armand Vingt-Trois. The nine casts were ordered for the cathedrals 850th birthday to replace the discordant ding dang of the previous four 19th century chimes. After the originals bells including the original Mary were destroyed in the French Revolution, the replacements were widely said to be Frances most out-of-tune church bells. Theres some irony that in Victor Hugos classic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the solitary bell-ringer Quasimodo was deaf. Jean-Marie, Maurice, BenoitJoseph, Steven, Marcel, Dennis, Anne-Genevieve and Gabriel will ring together with Mary to add a harmony to the French gothic landmark not heard since 1789. Travelers have come far and wide to catch a glimpse of the bronze giants on public display until Feb. 25. Minnesota governor orders flags half-staff ST. PAUL, Minn. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has ordered state flags be flown at half-staff in honor of Immortal Four Chaplains Day. Sunday is the 70th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the U.S. Army transport ship Dorchester off the coast of Greenland. In 1957, Congress established a national observance of the event that honors the four chaplains of difference faiths whose heroic acts saved the lives of many men. According to survivors, while the ship was sinking in 1943, the four chaplains went to each soldier to calm fears and hand out life jackets. When there were no more life jackets, the four chaplains removed their own life vests and gave them to soldiers. The chaplains went down with the ship.

C15 Associated PressCars drive across the nearly empty Zakim Bridge in Boston on Friday prior to a mandatory statewide driving ban. Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick declared a state of emergency Friday and banned travel on roads as of 4 p.m. as a blizzard that could bring nearly 3 feet of snow to the region began to intensify. As the storm gains strength, it will bring extremely dangerous conditions with bands of snow dropping up to 2 to 3 inches per hour at the height of the blizzard, Patrick said. Associated PressBOSTON A storm that forecasters warned could be a blizzard for the history books began clobbering the New York-toBoston corridor Friday, grounding flights, closing workplaces and sending people rushing to get home ahead of a possible 1 to 3 feet of snow. From New Jersey to Maine, shoppers crowded into supermarkets and hardware stores to buy food, snow shovels, flashlights and generators precious commodities after superstorm Sandy in October. Others gassed up their cars, another lesson learned after Sandy. Across much of New England, schools closed ahead of the first snowflakes. This is a storm of major proportions. Stay off the roads. Stay home, said Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. The snowstorm mercifully arrived at the start of a weekend, which means fewer cars on the road and extra time for sanitation crews to clear the mess before commuters in the New York-to-Boston corridor of roughly 25 million people have to go back to work. But it could also mean a weekend cooped up indoors. Rainy Neves, a mother of two in Cambridge, Mass., did some last-minute shopping at a grocery store, filing her cart to the brim. One to 3 feet of snow expected from New Jersey to Maine See BLIZZARD/ Page A2 MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleWorld Guy Erik Bendl makes his way south along U.S. 19 Friday morning with his dog Nice. Bendl is walking to raise awareness of the dangers of diabetes. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerErik Bendl or World Guy is on a roll. Friday, the Kentuckian with his dog, Nice, in tow, hugged the side of U.S. 19 as he entered Citrus County from Levy County rolling an 80-pound, 6-foot-tall blue-and-green ball, or globe. I am the World Guy. I am walking the world to bring awareness to diabetes and to help cure one diabetic at a time, Bendl said. Everyone knows someone dealing with this disease. By walking, I can show people a healthy way to fight the disease. Im a health evangelist of sorts and I get to lose some weight, too, he said with a chuckle. Bendl began his latest walk in the Milton/Pensacola area Jan. 2 and is heading to Tampa with the giant globe tethered to a stick. Laden with a backpack and a brimmed hat, Bendl says he gets a lot of time for introspection and enjoying natures bounty as he walks. His goal is usually between 10 and 15 miles per day, come snow, rain or brilliant Kentuckian rolls the globe to spread awareness about diabetes If I can get just one person to change their way of life, just by going for a walk or eating healthy because of what I am doing, well, that would be great.Erik BendlWorld Guy, on his mission. Erik Bendl has a blog where he c hronicles his daily journey at http://www.worldguy.org/ Bendl also is on Facebook as the W orld Guy and he can be reached at 502-408-5772 or http://main.diabetes.org/goto/ worldguy NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER At 88, Civil Air Patrol Col. Mary Feik looks like a typical grandma, with short, cropped gray hair and big, round eyeglasses. However, how many grandmas can say they had a jet fighter airplane named after them? How many grandmas trained pilots and aircraft mechanics and flew training missions during World War II and were named as one of the 100 most influential women in aviation and aerospace of the 20th century? How many grandmas are aviation legends, grouped with notables like the Wright Brothers and Neil Armstrong? Shes a living legend, said Maj. Keith Shewbart, squadron commander of West Citrus Civil Air Patrol Cadet Squadron 445 as he introduced Feik at the squadrons annual awards ceremony Thursday. The cadets, ages 14 to 18, sat spellbound as Feik, herself an honorary lifetime Civil Air Patrol member, spoke for more than an hour, telling stories about the planes she flew and knew personally and her experiences of challenging the gender barrier in aviation and Mary FeikAt 88, still flies her own plane a 1962 Comanche.

Honestly, a lot of junk a lot of quick things you can make just in case lights go out, a lot of snacks to keep the kids busy while theyd be inside during the storm, things to sip with my friends, things for movies, she said. Just a whole bunch of things to keep us entertained. In heavily Catholic Boston, the Archdiocese urged parishioners to be prudent about attending Sunday Mass and reminded them that, under church law, the obligation does not apply when there is grave difficulty in fulfilling this obligation. Halfway through what had been a mild winter across the Northeast, blizzard warnings were posted from parts of New Jersey to Maine. The National Weather Service said Boston could get close to 3 feet of snow by Saturday evening, while most of Rhode Island could receive more than 2 feet. Connecticut was bracing for 2 feet, and New York City was expecting as much as 14 inches. By Friday evening, the New York-to-Boston corridor was getting swirling snow and freezing rain. Early snowfall was blamed for a 19-car pileup in Cumberland, Maine, that caused minor injuries. The snow was expected to be at its heaviest Friday night and into Saturday. Forecasters said wind gusts up to 75 mph could cause widespread power outages and whip the snow into fearsome drifts. Floodingwas expected along coastal areas still recovering from superstorm Sandy. Meteorologist Jeff Masters of Weather Underground said the storm was actually a collision of two storms, and may end up among the Boston areas Top 5 most intense ever. When you add two respectable storms together, youre going to get a knockout punch with this one, he said. It could break Bostons all-time snowstorm record of 27.6 inches, set in 2003, forecasters said. The storm also comes almost 35 years to the day after the Blizzard of a ferocious storm that dropped 27 inches of snow, packed hurricane-force winds and claimed dozens of lives. Masters said the region could get a break from warmer air trailing behind expected to push temperature up to the 40s by Monday. Its going to be not that difficult to dig out, compared to maybe some other noreasters in the past, where it stayed cold after the storm went through, he said. Drivers were urged to stay off the streets lest their cars get stuck, preventing snowplows and emergency vehicles from getting through. New York City ran extra commuter trains in the afternoon to help people get home before the brunt of the storm hit. Amtrak stopped running trains in cities around the Northeast on Friday afternoon. Airlines canceled more than 4,200 flights through Saturday, and New York Citys three major airports and Bostons Logan Airport began shutting down in the afternoon. Interstate 95 in Rhode Island was closed to all but essential traffic. In Massachusetts, Gov. Deval P atrick enacted a statewide driving ban for the first time since the Blizzard of Hours before the ban went into effect at 4 p.m., long lines formed at gas stations, some almost out of fuel. James Stone said he was saving the remaining regular gas at his station in Abington, Mass., south of Boston, for snowplow drivers. It hasnt snowed like this in two years, Stone said. Most people are caught way off-guard. For Joe DeMartino of Fairfield, Conn., being overprepared was impossible: His wife was expecting their first baby Sunday. He stocked up on gas and food, got firewood ready and was installing a baby seat in the car. The couple also packed for the hospital. At Rosies Liquors in Abington, Mass., customers were lined up eight to 10 deep Friday, snapping up rum, wine and 30-packs of beer. Weve been absolutely slammed. Its almost been like Christmas here, manager Kristen Brown said. A lot of people are saying, Im going to be stuck with my family all weekend. I need something to do. sunshine, as the weather was Friday. Bendls target Friday was Crystal River by nightfall. He estimates he has walked more than 6,000 miles since 2007 and has been to 39 states. Motorists often stop to offer water, food and to make donations to the American Diabetes Association whose T-shirt he dons. I lost my mother (Gerta Bendl) to the disease when she was 54 years old and my uncle has it and is still hanging in there. I dont have the disease, but with my family history, I figured I better do something, Bendl said. He said there were times he tipped the scale at 280 pounds, but since he has been walking and eating properly, his weight has more or less hovered around 220 to 230. Bendl said the idea about walking with the ball began with his sons seventh birthday. He said he got the ball from a childrens summer camp where he volunteered in the 1980s. However, the ball sat in his basement for years until his sons birthday party, when he inflated it, but it was too big for his backyard. So he decided to roll it to a nearby park to play with his son, and people kept asking where he was going and what his cause was. Bendl said his first hike in the name of diabetes was in 1999, from Louisville his home to Lexington, Ky. In part to honor his mothers battle with diabetes and her subsequent death, and his uncles struggles with the disease, in 2007 decided to begin walking full time. If I can get just one person to change their way of life, just by going for a walk or eating healthy because of what I am doing, well, that would be great, Bendl said.A2SATURDAY, FEBRUARY9, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS The Savings Are Yours Because The Factory Is Ours!

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Wearing his U.S. Army dress jacket, Donald Robertson stood proudly as the long-awaited medal was pinned to his coat. He had dreamed of this day for almost 69 years and waited eagerly for the proud moment. French counsel general Gael de Maisonneuve distributed Frances Legion of Honor Medal to 24 World War II veterans at a ceremony Jan. 29 at the International Motorsports Center in Daytona. It is the most prestigious honor France gives for outstanding merit. The medal is being given nationwide to American veterans who fought for freedom of France during 1944 and 1945. At that time, Robertson was a 19-year-old Merchant Marine combat engineer, who also served in the infantry. He was a .30-caliber water-cooled machine gunman who patrolled Omaha Beach in Normandy. Robertson still remembers what occurred that day. The 116th Infantry Regiment, which was the 29th Infantry Division, was the initial troops that hit the beach, Robertson said. The 147th Combat Engineers were a part of the 6th Engineer Special Brigade. That was the outfit that handled and ran the beach area. Robertson explained the D1 exit was the only outlet accessible for departure off the beach for miles. However, a concrete wall blocked bumper-tobumper traffic lining the beach. The blockage resulted in thousands dying. The beach was being shelled by mortars, Robertson said. Airplanes were bombing and there were dead people all over the place. It was like sand on a beach but instead dead bodies everywhere. His infantry had racks welded on top of their bulldozers to hold hundreds of pounds of explosives. They took the explosives and blew up the wall until it disintegrated, which allowed vehicles to depart the beach. Robertson said the 121st engineers were given the credit, though. They were given the credit for blowing the wall at D1 exit, he said angrily. They did not have the explosives to blow down the wall. When I saw that they were given credit, I blew my cork. After his recognition in Daytona, Robertson sat in his chair at Cedar Creek Assisted Living Residence, content and proud of the acknowledgment of the truth. About 800 medals have been awarded in Florida. World War II veterans who served in France after the invasion on June 6, 1944, are being sought. They must apply and are screened for the medal. For more information about applying for the medal, call 305403-4180 or email legionof honorflorida@yahoo.com.

We are in a crisis, Thorpe said at the Citrus County Chamber of Commerces monthly lunch meeting. We are going to find a solution. He explained the reduction of Progress Energy tax dollars cost the county about $11 million at a time when the county is also facing lower property values. We have eliminated 103 positions, he said, attacking some misconceptions about county finances. We could lay off every employee in Citrus County and still not balance the budget. He showed how the money available for discretionary spending about $20 million is a small, declining portion of the overall $231 million budget; and, how relatively little is being spent on economic development in relation to other counties. Contrary to popular belief, we anticipated this, Thorpe said. Were going to make it work. He outlined some possible new revenue sources to augment ad valorem taxes. Steps being considered include creating Municipal Service Taxing Units and Municipal Service Benefit Units, which create revenue for specific services and franchise fees for the use of county right of way. Another option is a sales tax, he said. We could do a lot with a sales tax. Twenty-six percent of our taxes are potentially going away; weve got to look at a new way of doing business. It may cost more to live here, he said. But that may be what it takes to live the way we want to live. Thorpe cited the past criticisms for paving the Rails to Trails project and building Holder Park, which turned out to be among the best things the county has done, he said.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com.

SIDIBE Staff writerMelvin Lamar Mathers, 43, was arrested Thursday on a sexual assault charge in the alleged rape of a 55-year-old woman, according to a report by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Mathers is facing one count of sexual battery without force or violence. According to the report, the incident began as a consensual sexual encounter until the woman demanded to halt the activity because of a medical ailment. The woman told investigators she repeatedly told Mathers to stop, which reportedly infuriated him and he escalated the battery with another sexual assault, causing injury. When investigators asked Mathers about the incident, he reportedly told them he hadnt had sex with the woman in weeks and that everything was a setup. He further reportedly noted that when he went to the womans house he was accompanied by a female companion. However, the referenced female companion told investigators she was not with Mathers during the visit. The report also pointed inconsistencies in Mathers statements to authorities before he decided he needed an attorney. Mathers was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. No bond was allowed.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicle online.com.

Word got back to Rolls Royce in England that there was a girl who was going to do unspeakable things to their (airplane) engine and potentially damage the company image, the petite aviator told the cadets. Well, Mr. Walters from Rolls Royce came, and when I went to shake his hand I could tell he was afraid hed hurt me, but he didnt know that Im a wrench bender and I have a good, solid handshake. As she showed a PowerPoint photo of a P-80 Captivair, she said, Someone from the newspaper came out and saw me on the wing and found out who I was, she said. Her photo ran in the paper with the headline Marys Little Lamb. Ever since, no matter where in the country, whenever there was a P-80 on the field it was called Marys Little Lamb, she said. Can you have anything better than that? Feik, who lives in Maryland, told the cadets about growing up near Buffalo, N.Y., helping her dad by welding in his auto repair shop. After graduating high school, she wanted to pursue a career in engineering, but was told by a University of Buffalo registrar they didnt take women that women cant handle the work. I went home and told my father, she said. At 7, I was taking care of all his tools. At 11, I did all his welding. At 13, I overhauled my first V-8 engine, and at 15 I did all the initial road tests on all the cars we repaired. In those days, women didnt drive and they certainly didnt own cars, so my father went to the police department to make sure that if they saw some 15-year-old girl out driving they wouldnt arrest me. Her father found her a civilian job teaching aircraft maintenance in North Carolina for the Army Air Corps. She learned to fly, and at 18 she flew her first P-51. For my job, I had to fly every new airplane that the Air Corps bought, and then I had to write all the flight training manuals, she said. Feik ended her talk by challenging the cadets to learn all they can, dream big and do great things. At 88, she still flies her own 1962 Comanche and believes the sky is limitless. Its up to you young people to keep this country going, technologically and every other way, she said. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa Once largely united in resisting the Obama administrations new health care overhaul, a growing number of Republican governors are now buying into parts of the system as the financial realities of their states medical costs begin to counterbalance election politics. This week, Michigans Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his states health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administrations strong recommendation. Eleven Republican governors have rejected the idea while a dozen, who have been mostly critical, have not announced a decision. Politically, the dynamic may be shifting, said Matt Benson, a senior aide to Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, who proposed expanding Medicaid last month. There may be some folks looking at this anew. In each state, the proposal must still be approved by the legislature, where there is still Republican opposition. In explaining their decisions, many have said rejecting an expansion would mean their taxpayers would subsidize care for those in other states, while receiving no benefits themselves. In Ohio, that would be an estimated $2.4 billion over two years, Gov. John Kasich said Monday. Twenty-four states have agreed to participate in another optional part of the federal health plan setting up an online marketplace where residents can shop for subsidized insurance coverage. GOP governors soften stances on Medicaid expansion

Associated PressNEW YORK The worst of the flu season appears to be over. The number of states reporting intense or widespread flu dropped again last week, U.S. health officials said Friday. The season started earlier than normal, spiking first in the Southeast and then spreading. But now, bysome measures, flu activity has been ebbing for at leastfour weeks in much of the country. Flu and pneumonia deaths have been dropping for two weeks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. Its likely that the worst of the current flu season is over, CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said in an email. Its been nine years since a conventional flu season started like this one. That was the winter of 2003-04 one of the deadliest in the past 35 years, with more than 48,000 deaths. Like this year, that season had the same dominant flu strain, one that tends to make people sicker. But back then, the flu vaccine didnt protect against that bug, and fewer people got flu shots. The vaccine is reformulated each year, and the CDC has said this years vaccine is a good match to the types that are circulating. A preliminary CDC study showed this years version is about 60 percent effective. So far, the season has been labeled moderately severe. On average, about 24,000 Americans die each flu season, according to the CDC. Flu vaccinations are recommended for everyone 6 months or older. Kathleen Kathie Galati, 72HOMOSASSAKathleen A.

Associated PressThe mythical jester figure who reigns over Carnival, King Momo, is represented by the the crowned and costumed Milton Rodrigues Junior, who arrives for the official kickoff ceremony Friday flashing a thumbs-up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. An estimated half million visitors to the city of 6 million people are expected to attend the festivities. Health officials: Worst of flu season may be past Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO As samba queens get final touch-ups on their sequins and feathers and hundreds of thousands of revelers take command of Rios streets for Carnivals opening on Friday, Leo Name is hunkering down. The self-avowed Carnival Scrooge has stocked up on frozen TV dinners and hopes he wont have to set foot outside his apartment during the five days of festivities. Appalled by the monumental proportions street parties have taken on in recent years with the influx of an estimated half million visitors to the city of 6 million people, many locals flee Rio or lock themselves away for the duration. Fans of Carnival dismiss them as blasphemous curmudgeons. But Name and others insist theirs is a rational response to an event that shutters businesses, snarls traffic and sees public spaces overrun by beer-guzzling revelers who think any place is a good space to urinate. Over the past years, the crowds have gotten so thick that I couldnt even make it to the metro and wasnt able to buy bread at the supermarket, which is literally downstairs from my place, said Name, a geography professor at Rios Pontific Catholic University. I felt like I was under siege. It wasnt always like that. For decades, Rio was fairly calm during Carnival. Residents who could afford it took advantage of the public holiday to go on vacation, and the citys pace slowed. Carnival celebrations were mostly restricted to the well-regimented parades at the Sambadrome, where spectators now pay from $78 to $1,032 a person to marvel at the over-the-top floats, the musicians unflagging enthusiasm and the fancy footwork of dancers decked out in not much more than a sprinkling of rhinestones and a puff of ostrich feathers. When I was a kid, I used to go to three, four or even five movies a day during Carnival because the cinemas had these special discounts to try to drum up an audience, said the 35-year-old Name.It was great. The city was empty, the metro was empty, the streets were empty,and there were no lines anywhere. But Carnival has spilled into Rios streets with the resurgence of blocos raucous, heavy-drinking street parties that regularly draw tens or hundreds of thousands of people. This year, organizers are hoping Rios biggest bloco, Bola Preta, or Black Ball, which in 2012 attracted an estimated 2 million people to the historic city center, will enter the Guinness Book of World Records as the worlds biggest street As Carnival seizes Rio, some locals seek refuge Organizers are hoping Rios biggest bloco, Bola Preta, will enter the Guinness Book of World Records as the worlds biggest street party.

The private equity firm said that it generated more profit during the fourth quarter as the value of its investments rose. The video game publisher posted sharply higher earnings and revenue in the fourth quarter, surpassing Wall Streets expectations. The ratings agencys fourth-quarter net income rose, but shares fell on expectations it will be the target of the Justice Department. The Internet company said its quarterly revenue grew for the first time in eight years, helped by strength in worldwide advertising. The online professional-networking service reported results for the fourth quarter that exceeded Wall Street analysts projections. The S&P 500 index climbed Friday to its highest level since November 2007. Stronger-than-expected earnings reports drove the gains, with technology stocks among the top performers.

Mon.-Fri. 10am-5:00pm Sat. 11am-3pm Thru 2/14/13 2012 2012 2012 2012 Associated PressNEW YORK The Standard and Poors 500 edged up to a five-year high Friday, extending a rally that started in January. The S&P 500 rose 8.54 points to 1,517.93, closing 0.3 percent up for the week. The index is at its highest since November 2007 and has advanced for six weeks, the longest streak of gains since August. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 48.92 points, or 0.4 percent, to 13,992.97. The Nasdaq composite climbed 28.74 points, or 0.9 percent, to finish the week at 3,193.87. The Dow had its best January in almost two decades, and closed above 14,000 on Feb. 1 for the first time since 2007. The index is up 6.8 percent so far this year; the S&P 500 is up 6.4 percent. A last-minute budget deal in Washington to avoid the fiscal cliff of tax hikes and spending cuts helped powered the rally, as did as optimism about the housing sector and improvements in the jobs market. The S&P 500 finished the week higher despite logging its biggest daily decline in almost three months Monday following worrying news from Europe. The index fell 1.2 percent that day as bond yields in Spain and Italy rose on concern that the regions politicians will drag Europe back into crisis. European Central Bank President Mario Draghis cautious comments about the regions economy also weighed on markets Thursday. Everybody seems to be saying this market needs to correct, said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Banyan Partners. Nobody wants to be in it, but nobody wants to be out of it. Largely positive corporate earnings reports and a report that showed that the U.S. trade deficit narrowed sharply in December provided more fuel for the markets advance Friday. The trade deficit fell nearly 21 percent in December from November to $38.6 billion, the smallest in nearly three years, as exports rose while oil imports plummeted. The smaller trade gap means the economy likely performed better in the final three months of last year than first reported last week. The trade balance was surprisingly very good, said Phil Orlando, chief market strategist at Federated Investors. The government estimated that the U.S. economy contracted at an annual rate of 0.1 percent in the last three months of 2012. Orlando estimates that may now be revised to growth of 0.5 percent. Currently, analysts are expecting earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 to rise 6.5 percent for S&P 500 companies, according to data from S&P Capital I&Q. Stocks have benefited as investors poured a net $4.1 billion into stock mutual funds since the start of the year, according to data provided by Lipper. Im very encouraged by the fact, that finally, for the first time in many years, individual investors seem to be participating in this, said David Kelly, chief S&P 500 hits five-year high, extends rally Currently, analysts are expecting earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 to rise 6.5 percent for S&P 500 companies.

The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company said global sales at restaurants open at least 13 months dropped 1.9 percent for the month. The figure is a key metric because it strips out the volatility of newly opened and closed locations. After years of outperforming rivals, McDonalds has been struggling amid intensifying competition and challenging economic conditions around the world.Coal sales investigated by feds; no violations yetBILLINGS, Mont. The U.S. Department of Interior is investigating whether mining companies are skirting royalty rules as they increase exports of coal to Asia, but no violations have yet been issued, federal officials disclosed Friday. The investigation is focused on companies that use affiliates or brokers to sell coal from mines in the Western U.S. to customers in Asia. Thats when the parent company pays government royalties based on the mine price, then the affiliate ships the fuel overseas where its sold for many times the original price.From wire reports Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Dell Inc.s decision to sell itself for $24.4 billion to a group led by its founder and CEO is being ridiculed as a rotten deal by a major shareholder who estimates the slumping personal computer maker is really worth $42 billion. The missive launched Friday by Southeastern Asset Management Inc. threatens to complicate Dell Inc.s efforts to end its 25-year history as a public company. In a letter to Dells board of directors, Southeastern CEO O. Mason Hawkins threatened to lead a shareholder mutiny unless the company came up with an alternative to the deal announced earlier this week. Hawkins vowed to wield Southeasterns 8.5 percent stake to thwart the deal currently on the table. Only Michael Dell, the companys eponymous founder and CEO, owns more stock with a roughly 14 percent stake. Under Dells proposal, Southeastern and other stockholders will be paid $13.65 per share to leave the company in control of Michael Dell, who founded the business in his University of Texas dorm room in 1984. Michael Dell is contributing about $4.5 billion in stock and cash to help pay for the deal. The rest of the money would be supplied by the investment firm Silver Lake, loans from Microsoft Corp. and a litany of banks. The loans will burden Dell with debts that could leave the company with less money to invest in innovation and acquisitions. Hawkins derided the price of the proposed sale as woefully inadequate and laid out a scenario that values Dell at $23.72 per share, or about $42 billion. The per-share amount mirrors Dells stock price six years ago, when Michael Dell returned for a second go-round as the companys CEO. In statement late Friday, Dell said it stands behind the merits of the deal. The company emphasized that it worked with financial advisers to explore a wide range of alternatives before agreeing to sell the company for $24.4 billion a price 80 percent below Dells top market value of more than $150 billion at the peak of the dot-com boom.

Page A8SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2013 There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval.George Santayana, Soliloquies in England, 1922 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Use power of vote to make changeThe announcement by Duke Energy to close the nuclear plant at Crystal River generates some observation by me. Apparently the plant is in need of repairs because former owner Progress Energy damaged the facility trying to do repairs it was not equipped to do. The plant has not produced any electricity for the past three years. Our bought-and-paid-for state Legislature allowed Progress to bill customers for the anticipated repair costs to fix the problem it created. During the debate as to how or if to repair the nuclear plant, Progress and now Duke initiated a plan to building another nuclear plant in Levy County. That same bought-andpaid-for Legislature passed legislation that allows the power companies to bill, in advance, for new facilities at customers expense. In the real world of business, expansion is a cost of doing business and that cost is recovered by the future customers that the expansion is hopefully creating. Unless, that is, you have the power to entice the state Legislature to dump the cost on the citizens. So now you have a defunct nuclear plant setting on prime costal property that cannot even start to be disassembled for 60 years. In addition, highly radioactive nuclear waste will remain stored there for who knows how long. The company, rather than fix the existing facility, will just go and create another unusable piece of land for a new plant there does not appear to be a need for. To sum up my observations, we the consumer paid a private company to make repairs to its plant that it damaged but choose not to repair. It kept our money to pay for a new plant that will destroy another piece of Florida, it will store nuclear waste on the already useless land of the closed plant for many years to come, all with the blessing of our bought-and-paid-for Florida Legislature. Yet the citizens of Citrus County continue to elect the same people. One can only assume that the voting robots of this county enjoy having their pockets fleeced. Roger B. Krieger Beverly HillsChange form of governmentIt changes everything. Were in a new era, County Administrator Brad Thorpe said. Its a wake-up call in this county for everyone who wants quality of life. I do not agree with this statement by the county administrator. The fact is, many people in Citrus County wanted a sleepy little town, no real business and lets depend on Progress to support us. Other than Progress, the county has depended upon retirees and snowbirds to survive. County costs are going to have to be cut. Lets start at the top this time and change the form of government we have so we can lower the commissioners salaries from nearly $60,000 to, say, $20,000 each, and do away with some of the cars the sheriffs department has. Get the EDC out really looking for jobs that will pay more than $10 per hour. Create some Tax Increment Finance zones and lower impact fees so companies will locate here. Sell the quality of life; however, sell that Citrus County is looking to grow and is business-friendly, not restrictive. Stop paying school board members; this should be a job you do because you care, not for the money. The superintendent of schools should be appointed by the school board, not elected. Citrus County is going to have to look at the way it does business and change many, many things if it is to go on and progress into the future.

This is the idea behind the designation of February as Black History Month. By examining events in this one aspect of the American experience, we learn more about others and about ourselves, for the history of Americans of African descent is inextricably tied to the fabric of the history of America. It is ultimately the story of how one group of immigrants often brought to the country against their will became part of and helped to influence the culture of the country we call home. The idea of a time focused on black history goes back to 1915, when Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by black Americans and other peoples of African descent. In 1926, the group sponsored a Black History Week, and they chose to have the event in February because it is the birth month of Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist Frederick Douglass. This event grew over time until 1976, when President Gerald Ford designated February as Black History Month. Every president since Ford has repeated this designation and has endorsed a specific theme. The theme for 2013 is At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality, and focuses on the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation signed by Abraham Lincoln and the 1963 March on Washington, during which Martin Luther King gave his historic I Have a Dream speech. For more information on this years theme, visit the Library of Congress website at http://www.africanamerican historymonth.gov/ One of the major local events during this month will be the sixth annual African American Read-In held Sunday afternoon, Feb. 24, at the Learning and Conference Center on the campus of the College of Central Florida. This project began as a cooperative effort of several local groups and is an opportunity to learn more through ideas and images conveyed by the written word. The program is free and open to the public. Whether through quiet study or by attending educational events, there is much to learn about the American experience, for the past is a reminder of human truths, containing both mistakes and moments of nobility and greatness. We learn from each of these, and what we learn helps us understand ourselves and our neighbors, and what we all share as citizens of this great country.

It would also take it out of the cartels hands.Collecting from the poorPhase V sewer systems further encroachment of county government going into private business and making money off of the poor populace. Why on Earth would they charge over $3,000 to have people hook on to the sewers as a fee to them? And from then on every month, theyll be collecting money from the poor populace. If they really want sewers, they should provide sewerage for free, then charge the people to use them. Thats the way most cities work. This county commission is all about collecting money.

SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 On the morning of the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Courts Roe v. Wade ruling, I felt a chill, and it wasnt the bitter cold. After Mass at St. Patricks Cathedral, some 500 or so New Yorkers walked through the streets of Midtown Manhattan, in front of God, man and Grand Central Station, praying for life, love and mercy. Our prayers were not in judgment of others but that humanity may do better: that women and men may see better options than abortion and that God may forgive us for letting anyone think that she is alone and has no other choice than the death of her child. The chill was the knowledge that some of the people nearby know the pain of abortion all too well. It was the certainty that someone, on her morning commute, was thinking that was her only option. It was the sharing in a communitys pain, guilt and sorrow. We tend to live our lives masked in a veil of the self, pretending we live alone. But as solitary as we might sometimes feel, our actions affect others. Now is the time to take a few steps back not to turn back the clock, but to reflect. Our problems wont be solved through legislative actions. And legislative solutions, to the extent that they are effective, cant be maximized without a fuller context. We cant simply hold a vote to defund Planned Parenthood in order to send a political message and assume that the culture will change, that people will suddenly see the poisonous eugenics upon which the organization was founded and see adoption as the brilliant and generous option that it is. A congressional vote is not a magic trick. There are so many more steps involved. In a new book, Fill These Hearts, author Christopher West asks us to Consider the idea that our bodies tell a story that reveals, as we learn how to read it, the very meaning of existence and the path to the ultimate satisfaction of our deepest desire. West makes the point that our bodies and souls are not separate things, and that our very physical design speaks to our creation and destination. In the biblical understanding, there exists a profound unity between that which is physical and that which is spiritual, he writes. This means that our bodies are not mere shells in which our true spiritual selves live. We are a profound unity of body and soul, matter and spirit. In a very real way, we are our bodies. The general acceptance of the notion that our bodies are more than a conglomeration of biological functions is no longer something we can take for granted. Not when our federal health care policy treats womens fertility as a disease, as a roadblock to a confused misunderstanding of freedom and equality. Not when we are sending women into combat. The world-famous former mayor of New York City, Ed Koch, just died. He was good friends with the late Cardinal John OConnor. They collaborated on a book, His Eminence and Hizzoner, in 1989 in which Koch wrote: The future of our nation depends on our ability to inculcate a strong sense of morality in our young people. That moral sense should be based on philosophical, ethical and religious teachings, which are the underpinnings of conscience. The way to oppose abortion is by challenging the conscience of those who advocate it. If the battle cannot be won at the level of conscience, it cannot be won. But what is conscience? What constitutes right or wrong? If we do not agree there are answers to these questions, well never have a constructive policy or cultural debate about abortion. That is the basic work we need to address. No election is ever going to be better without it. No culture is ever going to be renewed without it. No lives are going to be truly saved and redeemed without it. We wont start making sense again without it. The dark bitter cold of winter will be warmed by the renewal that comes with embracing life, living life lovingly, supporting life, letting someone know they are not alone.

Compassion for the unbornAfter weeks of media coverage and countless expressions of condolences, there should be little doubt that our nation is extremely compassionate. Or so it seems. The slaughter of 26 innocent people, including 20 defenseless youngsters babies really is a devastating remembrance. How any rational person can escape the patent injustice and cruelty of such an act is beyond reason. Or so it seems. There have been many other similar events, some receiving highprofile exposure, like Columbine, the Colorado theater and now Newtown. Others, like the Jan. 21 AP report of five family members being gunned down by a 15-year old in Albuquerque, deserved only a back page single column sterile report. Do the media just file away compassion because of column space or subject overexposure? I am not suggesting more coverage of every tragedy. I am perhaps testing the medias motives. Do the victims or family members or community benefit from the media hype? I know when one of my six children died, the last thing I wanted was any form of public spotlight. So then, is it the media that benefits? Is the story more fodder than compassion; more than factual news reporting? Is this perhaps media competition for the attention of the public? Do I come not to praise Caesar but to bury him. No, just to open a wound. Is compassion magnified by media attention? What does it take to bring a tearful president from our capital to the site of the tragedy to pledge a new protection plan for our children ... only to have that plan morph into a very incendiary and polarizing gun control issue? If I did not know better I would wonder if Rahm Emanuels Never let a good crisis go to waste was resurrected from the administrations back room. The thought then occurs to me that compassion is, or should be, an innate part of an individuals moral being. Yet, I have witnessed in my lifetime a growing erosion of compassion for, as example, the unborn babies that are killed every year, every day in our country; many of them healthy living human beings. Do we feel compassion knowing that, as those 20 poor defenseless toddlers at Sandy Hook lost their lives, there were, that day, also 25 children-in-waiting aborted? Each of the aborted children was every bit as defenseless as those 20 children at Newtown that were slaughtered by a crazed gunman. But still many accept the argument that a womans right to administer to her own body includes the right to remove a living human being that is growing within, her not as a threatening medical oddity, but as a natural and sacred process of procreation. No small matter, creation. The taking of a life is murder in almost every society on Earth. A hundred years ago, life was almost universally considered as beginning at birth that first breath, that first cry. Medical science has since proven that concept erroneous. A fetus is now able to live outside the womb two or three months prior to the normal nine months. Science can now detect and measure a heart beat in a fetus less than a month old! I know there are conflicting circumstances that can sway opinions, so a line in the sand is not the answer. But, with 34 years having elapsed since Roe V. Wade, coupled with advanced medical knowledge, there is substantial reason to revisit our countrys position on abortion. This issue is our moral appraisal.Ted LaPorte HernandoDiscriminating across bordersThe Jay Treaty is an agreement signed by the United States and Great Britain in 1794 to allow Canadian born Native Americans to travel freely across the U.S./Canadian border. (http://www.ptla. org/wabanaki/crossborder-issues-jay-treaty). Since 1928, United States law has specifically recognized the right of American Indians born in Canada to pass the borders of the United States, but has limited that right to persons who possess at least 50 per centum of blood of the American Indian race. So, if you are a Native American born in Canada, you have specific rights and benefits, including the right to cross the U.S./Canada border freely and live and work in the United States. Canadian Native Americans do not have to have a green card, register as an alien or obtain work authorization. Moreover, the U.S. cannot deport Canadian Native Americans nor deny them services. Geographically, Canada, the U.S., and Mexico are inclusive of the North American continent; therefore, each and every indigenous person within the three countries are North American natives. According to the CIAs World Fact Book, Amerindians (native North Americans) with 50 percent or more Indian blood make up 30 percent of Mexicos population. All the above being true, I suppose one could argue that morally if not legally Mexicos 35 million Native North Americans are being discriminated against.

Voting in concertThere have been several Sound Offs about the brash Scott Adams, that hes not a team player, etc. Thank goodness we have one county commissioner who is not joined at the hip to the other four commissioners. Look at the voting record on major issues. Id like to see the Chronicle run a survey on that. I would guess that 90 percent of the time or better, they vote on things such as Ottawa, the sewer, the port, public services at Meadowcrest, the vote is always 5-0. These guys are lockstep at 5-0; its always 5-0. To be fair, Commissioner Meek voted no one time, I think that was maybe, but its not on one of these major issues. We can do better. We actually only need three commissioners. Cut the budget. Save the money.Wasting money on roadsI would like to know how Citrus County can consider spending $9 million on a road that is unnecessary, such as County Road 491. I thought the county was in debt due to the Duke Energy tax situation, but were spending this kind of money. I dont know what gives this board the right to spend our tax dollars so foolishly.

Bushes hacked Associated PressPresident George H.W. Bush, and his wife, Barbara, are seen June 12 in Kennebunkport, Maine. A criminal investigation is under way after a hacker accessed private photos and emails sent between members of the Bush family, including both former presidents. Hacker accesses Bush family emailsHOUSTON A mysterious email hacker apparently accessed private photos and messages sent between members of the Bush family, including both retired commanders in chief. The Secret Service is investigating the breach, which appeared to yield little more than a few snapshots and some family discussions. But the incident illustrated how easily hackers can pry into private lives, even those of one of the nations most prominent and closely guarded political clans. The Smoking Gun website displayed photos it said came from the hacker, including one that purported to show the elder Bush during his recent stay in a Houston hospital, where the 88-year-old spent almost two months undergoing treatment for complications from a bronchial infection. Power company takes outage blameNEW ORLEANS The company that supplied electricity to the Super Bowl took the blame Friday for the power outage that brought the big game to a halt, explaining a device designed specifically to prevent a blackout failed and plunged the game into darkness for more than half an hour. The device, called a relay, had been installed to protect the Superdome from problems in the cable that links the companys incoming power line with the lines that run into the stadium.Amish ringleader gets 15 yearsCLEVELAND The ringleader in hairand beard-cutting attacks on fellow Amish in Ohio was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison and 15 family members received sentences of one year to seven years. The victims were terrorized and traumatized, U.S. District Court Judge Dan Aaron Polster said in sentencing leader Sam Mullet Sr., 67, who sat without emotion. The judge said the defendants had violated the constitutional rights protecting religious practice that had benefited them as Amish such as an exemption from jury service and allowing Amish children to leave school at age 14. The 10 men and six women were convicted last year in five attacks in Amish communities in 2011. The government said the attacks were retaliation against Amish who had defied or denounced Mullets authoritarian style.

Thousands took their demands to the streets in cities across the country on Friday, carrying Egyptian flags and pictures of slain protesters. Venezuela set to devalue currency CARACAS, Venezuela Venezuelas government announced Friday that it is devaluing the countrys currency, a longanticipated change expected to push up prices in the heavily import-reliant economy. Officials said the fixed exchange rate is changing from 4.30 bolivars to 6.30 bolivars to the dollar. The devaluation had been widely expected by analysts in recent months, though experts had been unsure about whether the government would act while President Hugo Chavez remained out of sight in Cuba recovering from surgery. It was the first devaluation to be announced by Chavezs government since 2010, and it brought down the official value of the bolivar by 46.5 percent against the dollar.Gunmen kill polio workersKANO, Nigeria Gunmen suspected of belonging to a radical Islamic sect shot and killed at least nine women who were taking part in a polio vaccination drive in northern Nigeria on Friday, highlighting the religious tensions surrounding the inoculation of children in one of the few nations where the disease still remains endemic. The attack shocked residents of Kano, the largest city in Nigerias predominantly Muslim north, where women often go from house to house to carry out the vaccination drives as Muslim families feel more comfortable allowing them inside their homes than men. It also signaled a new wave of anger targeting immunization drives in Nigeria, where clerics once claimed the vaccines were part of a Western plot to sterilize young girls. Definitive death tolls for such attacks in Nigeria are difficult to obtain. Police and military forces in Nigeria routinely downplay such casualties, and families quickly bury the dead before the next sunset per local Muslim tradition. Horsemeat scandal reaches SwedenLONDON Sweden on Friday became the newest European country to be hit by a widening meat products scandal, as frozenfood company Findus said it was recalling beef lasagna meals there after tests confirmed the products contained horsemeat. Already, Britain, Ireland, Poland and France have been drawn into the growing saga over the use of horsemeat and the apparent mislabeling of products along the supply chain. Millions of burgers have been recalled in recent days. Eating horsemeat is not generally a health risk, but the cases have spurred disgust in places where such meat is far from a staple. World BRIEFS From wire reports Sam Mullet Sr. sentenced to 15 years in prison. Associated PressWASHINGTON A cornerstone of President Barack Obamas drive to check gun violence is gathering bipartisan steam as four senators, including two of the National Rifle Associations congressional champions, privately seek compromise on requiring far more firearms purchasers to undergo background checks. The talks are being held even as Obamas call to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, the two other major pillars of his plan, are hitting rough waters on Capitol Hill. An agreement among the four senators to expand background checks would add significant impetus to that highprofile proposal by getting the endorsement of a group that ranges from one of the Senates most liberal Democrats to one of its most conservative Republicans. Well get something, I hope. Im praying for it, said Sen. Joe Manchin, DW.Va., one of the participants. Manchin, a moderate Democrat, is an NRA member who aired a 2010 campaign ad in which he literally shot a hole through Democratic environmental legislation that he pledged to oppose. Also involved is Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., another NRA member with a strong conservative record but occasional maverick impulses; No. 3 Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer of New York, a liberal; and moderate GOP Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois. Background checks are required only for sales by the nations 55,000 federally licensed gun dealers, but not for private purchases like those at gun shows, online or in person. There are few indisputable, up-to-date statistics on how many guns change hands without background checks, but a respected study using 1990s data estimated that 30 percent to 40 percent of gun transactions fit into that category. The senators talks have included discussions about how to encourage states to make more mental health data available to the federal system for checking gun buyers records, according to people who spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to describe the private negotiations. They are also considering potential exemptions to expanded background check requirements, including transactions involving relatives or people with licenses to carry concealed weapons.

Obama finding unlikely allies in push for background checks Associated PressU.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement vehicles are covered in snow Friday near the command post in Big Bear Lake, Calif. Law enforcement officers working in falling snow searched a Southern California mountain Friday for Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer accused of carrying out a killing spree because he felt he was unfairly fired from his job. Associated Press BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. All that was left were footprints leading away from Christopher Dorners burned-out pickup truck, and enormous, snow-covered mountains where he could be hiding among hundreds of cabins, deep canyons and dense woods. More than 100 officers, including SWAT teams, were driven Friday in glass-enclosed snow machines and armored personnel carriers to hunt for the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of going on a deadly rampage to get back at those he blamed for ending his police career. With bloodhounds in tow, officers went door to door as snow fell, aware of the reality they could be walking into a trap set by the well-trained former Navy reservist who knows their tactics and strategies as well as they do. The bad guy is out there, he has a certain time on you, and a distance. How do you close that? asked T. Gregory Hall, a retired tactical supervisor for a special emergency response team for the Pennsylvania State Police. The bottom line is, when he decides that he is going to make a stand, the operators are in great jeopardy, Hall said. As authorities weathered heavy snow and freezing temperatures in the mountains, thousands of heavily armed police remained on the lookout throughout California, Nevada, Arizona and northern Mexico. Police said officers still were guarding more than 40 people mentioned as targets in a rant they said Dorner posted on Facebook. He vowed to use every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordinance and survival training Ive been given to bring warfare to the LAPD and its families. At noon, police and U.S. marshals accompanied by computer forensics specialists used a search warrant to remove about 10 paper grocery bags of evidence from his mothers single-story house in the Orange County city of La Palma. Dorners mother and sister cooperated with the search, and a police spokesman said. The manhunt had Southern California residents on edge. Unconfirmed sightings were reported near Barstow, about 60 miles north of the mountain search, and in downtown Los Angeles. Some law enforcement officials said he appeared to be everywhere and nowhere, and speculated that he was trying to spread out their resources. For the time being, their focus was on the mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles a snowy wilderness, filled with thick forests and jagged peaks, that creates peril as much for Dorner as the officers hunting him. Bad weather grounded helicopters with heat-sensing technology. After the discovery of his truck Thursday afternoon, SWAT teams started scouring the mountains. As officers worked through the night, a storm blew in, possibly covering tracks that had led them away from his truck but offering the possibility of a fresh trail to follow. In his online rant, Dorner baited authorities. Any threat assessments you generate will be useless, it read. I have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving. Dorner served in the Navy, earning a rifle marksman ribbon and pistol expert medal. He was assigned to a naval undersea warfare unit and various aviation training units, according to military records. He took leave from the LAPD for a six-month deployment to Bahrain in 2006 and 2007. Last Friday was his last day with the Navy and also the day CNNs Anderson Cooper received a package that contained a note on it that read, in part, I never lied. A coin riddled with bullet holes that former Chief William Bratton gave out as a souvenir was also in the package. Police said it was a sign of planning by Dorner before the killing began. On Sunday, police say, Dorner shot and killed a couple in a parking garage at their condominium in Irvine. The woman was the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing. Dorner wrote in his manifesto that he believed the retired captain had represented the interests of the department over his. Hours after authorities identified Dorner as a suspect in the double murder, police believe Dorner shot and grazed an LAPD officer in Corona and then used a rifle to ambush two Riverside police officers early Thursday, killing one and seriously wounding the other.

Citrus needs overtime for first postseason crown since 2005SEANARNOLD CorrespondentBROOKSVILLE An alley-oop dunk by junior Devin Pryor off a feed by sophomore Desmond Franklin with 15 seconds remaining in overtime punctuated a 9-0 Citrus run that helped the Hurricanes to their first district title since 2005 and transformed the Central High School gym into a mass frenzy of ecstatic Citrus fans and players Friday. The second-seeded Canes battled backand-forth with No. 1 seed West Port all game, with the teams exchanging leads 14 times before going to overtime tied at 60 following a missed Wolf Pack layup at the buzzer in the District 6A-6 boys basketball title game. Citrus then went 6-of-8 at the foul line and outrebounded the Wolf Pack 7-1 in the extra period to prevail 73-68. With the victory, the Canes (16-10) earn a home regional playoff game against Gainesville at 7 p.m. Thursday, while West Port (17-7) plays at Leesburg, which defeated Gainesville 91-59 in the 6A-5 championship Friday. The rebounding edge down the stretch weve been in so many close games that its been preached over and over to our players that in that situation we need to get every rebound, make our free throws and not turn the ball over, so its almost automatic now, Citrus head coach Tom Densmore said, while embracing his teams trophy. When your guys step to the line and knock them down, everything works out. It just shows their heart and character and how bad they wanted to win this game. The Wolf Pack drained nine 3-pointers in the game while Citrus, faced with a pesky West Port perimeter defense led by West Port senior Alex Jewell (team-high 18 points) and sophomore Drhyromi Maxwell (12 points), found success inside with layins off drives, soft runners near the hoop and even a pair of hook shots off the glass. Pryor and Citrus junior Mitchell Ellis each scored a game-high 19 points, while senior Randy Lynn (seven boards, eight points) and junior Jay Clark (eight points) were solid in the paint. I guess we werent knocking as many shots down from the perimeter, and we got to double-bonus on fouls, so I thought if we take it to the rim a lot more it would help us win and it did, Ellis said on his teams offensive attack. Pryor added 10 rebounds to help his team to a 14-rebound advantage. I havent been rebounding as well in other games, but I knew I really needed to help out with West Port being a big team that can jump, Pryor said.

RISAK CorrespondentWhen all but two key players return from a team that reached the final 16 in last years state tournament, prospects for the upcoming season seem pretty good. Thats what Lecanto softball coach Robert Dupler has, but he takes nothing for granted. First, theres the matter of replacing those two key losses, first baseman Mariah Hines and third baseman Andrea Coutu. Coutu set school records for hits in a season and batting average (.622). Still, with some promising newcomers and a lot of veterans, the outlook for a Panthers team that won 18 games last year seems promising. Citrus, which like Lecanto is part of District 6A-6, has a lot to replace from a year ago. Coach Larry Bishop lost seven to graduation and has only two seniors on this years squad. But the incoming talent has Bishop looking forward to the upcoming campaign, although he figures it may take a while for the sorting out process to take effect. The goal for the Hurricanes: Be ready by 6A-6 tournament time. Returning is a key term in describing Crystal Rivers softball team. Nine players, including five seniors, are back from a 2012 squad that posted a 15-10 overall record. Also returning for another go-round at coaching is Lana Wentworth, who last served as head coach in 2010. Like the countys other schools, the Pirates want to win now to build momentum come district tournament time. A year ago they fell one step short of advancing to the regional round of competition; this year they want to take that additional step. At Seven Rivers Christian, a step or Citrus blanks Pirates Chronicle staffBehind pitcher Kelly Abramowichs complete-game shutout, the Citrus softball team knocked off Crystal River 2-0 at Citrus High School in Inverness on Friday night.

Weeki Wachee posed quite a challenge to the Canes as the visiting Hornets took the meet victory away from Citrus 4-3 on Friday night. All matches were conducted as pro-sets. Citrus (1-1 overall) singles players are still looking to find a rhythm this season as both No.1 and 2 seeds Kyle Everett and Grey Pospiech lost their respective singles matches for the second meet in a row. Everett was dropped 8-4 by Weeki Wachees Chris Rosser. Pospiech was similarly defeated by Mark Mulleavey 8-3 in the No. 2 matchup. Kyle and Grey in singles play are still warming up, Citrus head coach James Martone said. (I) give credit to Weeki Wachees (number) one and two; they were hitting the ball real well. Michael Hetland is Citrus usual No. 3 singles player but could not compete Friday due to an ankle injury. Sophomore Brady Hayes was asked to step up to Hetlands spot and nabbed the Canes first point of the match, winning 8-6 over Andrew Jensen.

B2SATURDAY, FEBRUARY9, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS two up the ladder would be gratifying after last season. The Warriors were just 2-16 and lost in the opening round of the 2A-4 tournament. Heres a look at each teams prospects for 2013:LecantoLast season: 18-10 overall, District 6A-6 runner-up, lost in Class 6A regional semifinal. Key returnees: Amber Atkinson, C; Danielle Yant, P; Jordan Martin, 2B; Amber Russo, SS; Lilly Parrish, OF; Breanna Martin, OF/P; Paige Richards, OF, Kelsey Lilley, DH. Key newcomers: Sidney Holstein; Amber Hopkins. Key losses: Andrea Coutu, 3B; Mariah Hines, 1B. Outlook: Theres a single schools name that eats at the Panthers Springstead. After last season, it should. The Eagles beat Lecanto four times, including in the district finals and regional semifinals. One name that wont haunt the Panthers this year, however, is Alexis Adams, the Springstead pitcher who blanked Lecanto in those final two meetings. Adams and several other players are gone from that team, but dont count the Eagles out of the 6A-6 race. Still, the Panthers are powerful. Yant did the bulk of the pitching a year ago She hits her spots real well, said Robert Dupler, Lecantos coach and she has an all-star catcher in Atkinson, the Chronicles 2012 Softball Player of the Year. Atkinson hit .488 last season with six home runs and 34 runs batted in. Dupler plans to use the regular season to try and put them in where they fit best. The girls all hit the ball real well and they committed something like 56 errors. The goal for this year: We want to be ready for the district tournament, Dupler said. Our objective game in and game out is to get better. Now weve 25 practice games to get ready for the district tournament.CitrusLast season: 12-13 overall, lost in District 6A-6 semifinals. Key returnees: Aaron McIntyre, SS/CF; Jessica Liptrap, 3B; Amy Abramowich, 1B/OF; Kelly Abramowich, P/OF; Chelby Lawler, OF/P. Melissa Michaud, C; Rachel Martin, P/OF; Kayla Quesenberry, P/1B. Key newcomers: Jordan Josey, P/SS; April DeSomma, 2B/SS; Erica Corlew, SS/C; Emily Ferreira, SS/2B; Sarah Marchant, 3B; Decaysha Miller, OF. Key losses: Kelly Ellis, Devon Perrine, Danielle Garcia, Molly Price, Morgan Metzger, Emily Parker, Chelsea Tafelski. Outlook: This Hurricane team will certainly have a new look, but theres a lot of promise. Were going to be young, Citrus coach Larry Bishop said. But weve got some good talent. Well play the first half of the season and find out who will play what. Hopefully, by the end of the season well be at our best. The return of Kelly Abramowich on the mound brightens Citrus picture considerably. The key for Citrus will lie in how fast the newcomers to the team become veterans. They must make an impact if the Hurricanes are to have a successful campaign.Crystal RiverLast season: 15-10 overall, losing to Dunnellon in the 5A-7 semifinals. Key returnees: Rachel Roe, P; Emily Laga, OF; Chloe Lane, OF. Marissa Pool, SS; Laynee Nadal, OF; McCale Wilson, P; Danielle Gomez, C; Bridget Whitley, Utility; Samantha Jenkins, 1B. Key newcomers: Kathryn DeSomma, 2B; Maegan McMichen, P/OF. Tiffany MacDonald, P. Key losses: Megan Unverdorben, Tabitha Augsburger, Brooke Levins. Outlook: Although Wentworth didnt coach Crystal River last year, shes been in this position before twice in fact, coaching the 2010 team before Dennis Jenkins took over in 2011. She certainly didnt return to a bare cupboard when it comes to experience and talent. Roe, McMichen and Wilson have all pitched for the Pirates, and Wentworth believes Pool to be a standout at shortstop. Laga and Nadal will anchor the outfield. We need solid offense, we need our defense to come together, and we need our pitchers to throw strikes, Wentworth said. Were trying to figure out what we do best, and were trying to figure out what will work for us. I think were strong enough to win the district. Crystal River opened its season with a 16-1 mercy-rule win over Ocala Trinity Catholic on Monday. Wilson was the winning pitcher, allowing one run in four innings.Seven Rivers ChristianLast season: 2-16 overall, lost in District 2A-4 opening round. Key returnees: Katie Fenton, Jasmine Fisher, Allison Green, Milena Kacer, Sofia Leon, Melissa Manning, Kim Strong, Rebecca Wright, Maijah Franklin, Kim Iwaniec, Katie Dreyer, Alexis King, Gabby Wright Key newcomers: Alyssa Gage, Andrea Golliher, Shannon Hoey. Key losses: Catherine Strong. Outlook: The good news for the Warriors is that all the starters from last years team return. The bad news is last years team posted a 2-16 record. But to Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer, theres more good news than bad. Our record was not reflective of how good a team we were, he said. A lot of strange things happened last year, including injuries. Ill be very surprised if we dont have a winning record. The question is, was last season an aberration or the norm? In 2011, Seven Rivers was 9-7, so perhaps a winning record isnt so far fetched. Returning starters include Green, a catcher and twice the teams most valuable player, and Kacer, a pitcher, as well as Fenton, Leon, Dreyer and Gabby Wright. Also returning after missing all of last season is Rebecca Wright. Combined with the level of experience on the rest of the team, Gary Dreyers optimism seems logical. The softball season starts Monday for the Warriors with a game at Ocala Christian Academy.

Paterno is fighting back against the accusations against her husband that followed the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Her campaign started with a letter sent Friday to former Penn State players. She wrote that the familys exhaustive response to former FBI director Louis Freehs report for the university on the Sandusky child sex abuse case will officially be released to the public at 9 a.m. Sunday on paterno.com. The interview will air on Monday. Chronicle file photoLecanto senior catcher Amber Atkinson returns after a 2012 junior campaign that saw the Panther bat .488 with six home runs and 34 RBIs. Atkinson was the Chronicles Softball Player of the Year. Associated PressSTATE COLLEGE, Pa. Breaking more than a year of silence, Sue Paterno is defending her late husband as a moral, disciplined man who never twisted the truth to avoid bad publicity. The wife of the former Penn State coach is fighting back against the accusations against Joe Paterno that followed the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Her campaign started with a letter sent Friday to former Penn State players. She wrote that the familys exhaustive response to former FBI director Louis Freehs report for the university on the Sandusky child sex abuse case will officially be released to the public at 9 a.m. Sunday on paterno.com. Freeh in July accused Joe Paterno and three university officials of covering up allegations against Sandusky, a retired defensive coordinator. Less than two weeks later, the NCAA levied unprecedented sanctions on the program that Joe Paterno built into one of the most wellknown in college football. When the Freeh report was released last July, I was as shocked as anyone by the findings and by Mr. Freehs extraordinary attack on Joes character and integrity. I did not recognize the man Mr. Freeh described, Sue Paterno wrote. I am here to tell you as definitively and forcefully as I know how that Mr. Freeh could not have been more wrong in his assessment of Joe. The family directed its attorney, Washington lawyer Wick Sollers, to assemble experts to review Freehs findings and Joe Paternos actions, Sue Paterno wrote. She did not offer details on findings in the letter, except to say that they unreservedly and forcefully confirm my beliefs about Joes conduct. In addition, they present a passionate and persuasive critique of the Freeh report as a total disservice to the victims of Sandusky and the cause of preventing child sex offenses, Sue Paterno wrote. Sue Paterno said neither Freehs report, nor the NCAAs actions, should close the book on the scandal. This cannot happen, she wrote. The Freeh report failed and if it is not challenged and corrected, nothing worthwhile will have come from these tragic events. The Associated Press left messages Friday for representatives for Freeh.

Snedeker in contention Associated PressPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. Brandt Snedeker goes into the weekend at Pebble Beach with another chance to win, this time without golfs biggest stars in his way. Snedeker played bogey-free at tough Spyglass Hill on Friday for a 4-under 68, giving him a share of the lead with Ted Potter Jr. in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Potter three-putted his final hole at Monterey Peninsula for a 67. Hunter Mahan was among those one shot behind. With one more round before everyone has played all three courses in the rotation, the leaderboard was a big traffic jam. Three dozen players were within five shots of the lead. Snedeker, who was at 8-under 134, felt he was at an advantage because he goes to Pebble Beach for the final two rounds. And theres one other edge for his psyche Tiger Woods isnt playing, and defending champion Phil Mickelson is six shots behind. Snedeker has played so well this year that he is leading the FedEx Cup standings without having won. He was runner-up the last two weeks four shots behind Woods at Torrey Pines, and then four shots behind Mickelson in the Phoenix Open. Keep running into guys who are or who are going to be in the Hall of Fame, Snedeker said at the start of the week. Mickelson, going after a record-tying fifth win in the event, was easing his way into contention until he made three bogeys in a four-hole stretch along the ocean at Spyglass Hill for a 71. Snedeker made it look easy at Spyglass, even though the day began in rugged conditions with a light rain and temperatures in the low 40s. He hit a towering 8-iron on the downhill, par-3 12th hole that plopped 3 feet next to the cup for his first birdie. He added a pair of simple up-and-down birdies on the par 5s and then closed out a solid day with an 8-iron to 5 feet on the eighth hole. Snedeker sees the upside of his two second-place finishes: At least hes giving himself a chance. Thats how you win out here, he said. You keep putting yourself in position, and the more times you do, the more success youre going to have. ... Im doing a better job this week of making my way around the golf courses and not putting myself in bad spots and getting out of tough situations very quickly. His goal for the last two days? Not do anything stupid, he said. Unfortunately, I dont do it very often. Potter remains somewhat of a mystery. He won last year in his rookie season at The Greenbrier Classic to claim a peculiar footnote in history the only player to win a PGA Tour event in which Woods and Mickelson missed the cut. Still, his performance has been spotty. Potter missed nine out of the 12 cuts going into The Greenbrier, and then missed four out of nine cuts after his win. Champions TourBOCA RATON Bernhard Langer and Tom Pernice Jr. each shot 6-under 66 to tie for the first-round lead at the Allianz Championship. Langer, who holed out a bunker shot to win here in a playoff in 2010, birdied three of the last four holes at Broken Sound. Pernice was even through eight holes, but played the next six holes in six-under, including an eagle at No. 5 when he holed a pitching wedge from 128 yards, to charge into contention. Defending champion Corey Pavin, Roger Chapman, Fred Funk, Scott Simpson and two players making their Champions Tour debuts Rocco Mediate and Bart Bryant were a shot back after 67s.European TourJOHANNESBURG Trevor Fisher Jr. shot a 9-under 62 and Richard Sterne had a 65 Friday to share the lead after the second round of the Joburg Open. Fisher had an eagle and seven birdies, including a run of three straight in his back nine on the West Course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club. Sterne went bogey-free for the second consecutive round on the East Course. The South Africans were 15 under at the European Tour event.

Associated PressCLEVELAND Kyrie Irving scored 24 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated Orlando 119-108, sending the Magic to their 12th straight loss. Marreese Speights scored 18 points and Tristan Thompson added 16 for Cleveland, which scored 13 straight points in a stretch that began late in the third period to take control of the game. The Cavaliers scored the last eight points of the third quarter to go ahead 85-80. A basket by Shaun Livingston and a 3-pointer by Wayne Ellington put Cleveland ahead 90-80 early in the fourth. The Cavaliers scored 34 points in the final period. Nikola Vucevic scored a career-high 25 points for Orlando, which has lost 23 of 25. Arron Afflalo added 23 points and rookie Andrew Nicholson scored 21, but it wasnt enough for the Magic, who havent won since Jan. 16. Speights, who was 12 for 12 at the foul line, scored 12 points in the stretch that helped Cleveland take over. The Cavaliers, who tied a season high with their third straight victory, have won six of eight.Heat 111, Clippers 89MIAMI LeBron James scored 30 points in another efficient performance, Dwyane Wade scored 20 and the Miami Heat dominated the middle two quarters on the way to an easy 111-89 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. James shot 9 for 11, giving him 37 makes on his last 47 attempts, and sat out the fourth quarter. It was his fourth straight 30-point game, tying him with Wade as the only Heat player with such streaks in the franchises 25-year history. Mario Chalmers finished with 18 points and Shane Battier scored 12 for Miami, which improved to 21-3 at home. The Clippers got Chauncey Billups, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin back from injuries, but that trio of starters combined for only 23 points.Wizards 89, Nets 74WASHINGTON The Washington Wizards held the Brooklyn Nets without a field goal for nearly nine minutes during the first half, survived a second-half slump and held on for an 89-74 victory in their latest win over a team near the top of the standings. Nene had 20 points and 11 rebounds, John Wall added 15 points and nine assists, and Martell Webster scored 16 points for the Wizards, who have one of the worst records in the NBA but have nevertheless taken eight of their last nine at home. Deron Williams scored 20 points for the Nets, who lost to a sub-.500 team for only the second time this season. Lakers 100, Bobcats 93CHARLOTTE, N.C. Kobe Bryant shrugged off a scoreless first half to finish with 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds and the Los Angeles Lakers overcome a 20-point second-half deficit to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 100-93. The Lakers avoided a costly defeat to the NBAs worst team and pulled within three games of .500. Bryant attempted only two shots in the first half and didnt bother coming out for warmups to start the second half. But he provided the jolt the Lakers needed in the third quarter and scored 14 points in the final period, including a driving layup with 40 seconds left to push the lead to five.Hornets 111, Hawks 100ATLANTA Greivis Vasquez had his first career triple-double and Eric Gordon scored 27 points, leading New Orleans to a 111-100 victory over the Atlanta Hawks and a rare winning streak for the last-place Hornets. Vasquez scored 21 points, dished out 12 assists and grabbed 11 rebounds for New Orleans, which rallied from a 14-point deficit in the first half and withstood a late charge by the stumbling Hawks. Al Horford drove for a slam that cut the Hornets lead to 98-94 with 3 1/2 minutes remaining. But Ryan Anderson sank a 3-pointer that caught the front of the rim, bounced high off the backboard and fell through. Josh Smith led Atlanta with 23 points.Pistons 119, Spurs 109AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Greg Monroe had 26 points and 16 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons snapped San Antonios 11-game winning streak with a 119-109 victory over the short-handed Spurs. San Antonio played without Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, and the Pistons led by as many as 21 points in the second quarter. Tony Parker scored 31 points for San Antonio and Kawhi Leonard added 16. Raptors 100, Pacers 98, OTINDIANAPOLIS Rudy Gay scored 17 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, leading the Toronto Raptors to a 100-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers. The game went into overtime after Amir Johnsons buzzer-beating tip-in stood following a replay review. The Raptors won it when Gay hit a 17-foot jumper with 1.7 seconds left and Paul Georges 15-footer rimmed out as the horn sounded. David West scored 30 points and George had 26 as the Pacers 15-game home winning streak came to an end. DeMar DeRozan scored 22 to make Toronto (18-32) the first team to win twice at Indiana (31-20) this season.Thunder 127, Phoenix 96OKLAHOMA CITY Kevin Durant scored 21 points, Thabo Sefolosha had a season-high 18 and the Oklahoma City Thunder rode a gigantic third-quarter run to a 127-96 victory over the Phoenix Suns. All five Thunder starters had at least one basket during a 21-0 run that put Oklahoma City in position to complete a perfect homestand with a third straight blowout. Russell Westbrook had a right-handed slam during the run before finishing it off with a banked-in runner to stretch the lead to 81-55 with 3:25 to go in the third quarter. Phoenix even came out of a timeout with six players on the floor at one point during the stretch, but all that did was result in another point after Durant made the resulting technical foul.Knicks 100, Timberwolves 94MINNEAPOLIS Carmelo Anthony had 36 points and nine rebounds, scoring 12 points down the stretch to rally the New York Knicks to a 100-94 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Anthony topped 30 points for the 17th time this season for the Knicks, who trailed by 11 with seven minutes to play. But Anthony did all of his fourth-quarter damage in those final minutes, hitting a 19-footer with 1:10 to play that put New York up for good. Derrick Williams had 19 points and Ricky Rubio had 18 points and 11 assists for the Timberwolves, who lost for the 14th time in 16 games. Nikola Pekovic added 16 points and 11 rebounds, but Minnesota had no answer for Anthony down the stretch.Rockets 118, Trail Blazers 103HOUSTON James Harden had 35 points and 11 assists, Chandler Parsons scored 20 and the Houston Rockets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 118-103. Harden went 13 for 16 from the field and 4 of 5 from 3point range, putting on an individual show in the last game at the Toyota Center before the NBAs All-Star weekend comes to town. Harden was chosen as a reserve for the West squad, making his first All-Star team. LaMarcus Aldridge, another All-Star reserve for the West, scored 31 points for Portland. The Blazers had won the previous two meetings this season in overtime, rallying from double-digit deficits in both. Not this time. Houston preserved a comfortable lead for most of the second half, and Harden finished off Portland with a fadeaway jumper from the wing.Grizzlies 99, Warriors 93MEMPHIS, Tenn. Marc Gasol scored six of his 20 points down the stretch to help the Memphis Grizzlies defeat the Golden State Warriors 99-93. Gasol, who also grabbed 11 rebounds, was 9 of 14 from the field to help Memphis end a two-game slide. Tony Allen had 17 points on 7 of 8 shooting, Zach Randolph had 16 points and 12 rebounds, while Jerryd Bayless finished with 14 points. Austin Daye had 12 points for Memphis, providing a spark in the first half. Stephen Curry had 32 points and eight assists for the Warriors, who lost their third straight. David Lee was the only other Golden State player in double figures with 26 points, connecting on 10 of 16 shots. Memphis took over with nine unanswered points after consecutive 3-pointers from Curry gave the Warriors their last lead of the game with about 8 minutes left.SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, FEBRUARY9, 2013 B3 Associated PressIndianas latest run as No. 1 didnt last long, abruptly halted by a loss to unranked Illinois.

I do think there will be a revolving door or chairs that we will have a new No. 1 or new top fives moving forward because anyone can beat anyone, Kansas coach Bill Self said Friday. There is no dominant team, but there are a lot of really good ones. Oddly enough, this season of jumbling started with stability at the top. Indiana was the preseason No. 1 and held there for the first five weeks before a 5-foot-11 walk-on from Butler named Alex, not David knocked Goliath from the top spot with a floater in overtime. Duke got the bump to No. 1 after that and stayed in place for four polls until North Carolina States fans stormed the court after a Blue Devil dumping in Raleigh on Jan. 12. Since then, No. 1 teams have perched on a precarious pedestal. After Dukes first loss, Louisville moved to No. 1. The Cardinals responded to prosperity with not just one loss, but three in a row and tumbled out of the top 10 within two weeks. The Blue Devils reclaimed the top spot in the Jan. 21 poll and promptly made Louisvilles lapse forgettable with a 90-63 crushing by Miami, the third-worst loss by a No. 1 ever. Next up, Michigan. The Wolverines actually managed to win a game as No. 1, beating Northwestern. The downward pull of parity punched Michigan in its next game, a road loss to Indiana that sent the Hoosiers back to the top. Indiana followed by getting caught up in the top-ranked turmoil in Champaign, inexplicably leaving Tyler Griffey open for an uncontested layup at the buzzer that sent hundreds of Illini fans streaming onto the floor and the Hoosiers toward a likely tumble down the poll. Thats a hard question. Im not sure, Indiana coach Tom Crean said of No. 1 teams struggling to stay on top. We played at a high level most of the game. The current string of No. 1 swapping is the longest since 1994, when Arkansas, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA and Duke alternated at the top seven straight weeks the longest streak since Saint Louis debuted as No. 1 in the initial AP poll. Top-ranked teams have lost six times this season overall, which isnt quite as rare; No. 1s lost nine times in 2008-09 and at least six times in a season since 199697, according to STATS INC. The topranked team also has lost to an unranked team twice this season, which has happened 10 times in that span. But it isnt just the teams at the top that are having trouble. Top 25 teams all over the country are getting knocked off by unranked opponents. According to STATS, Top 25 teams lost to unranked teams 36 times from Jan. 17 to Feb. 6 this season, most in at least 17 years. And some were quite ugly. Indiana was firmly in control Thursday night before allowing Illinois, a team that had lost six of its previous seven games, to close with a 13-2 run to pull off the upset. Florida would have been poised to take over the top spot, but bumbled its way through a game against Arkansas a day after moving up to No. 2 in the poll, losing by 11 to the unranked Razorbacks. Selfs Jayhawks were No. 2 in the poll two weeks ago, then lost to Oklahoma State at Allen Fieldhouse for the first time since 1989. Kansas followed that up with a real stinker, scoring 13 points in the first half of a loss to TCU that had Self calling his team the worst Kansas had put on the floor since Dr. James Naismith invented the game of basketball. With the latest jumbling at the top, Michigan (20-2), could be the next team to move to No. 1. Or maybe Duke (19-2) gets another shot. Who knows, maybe someone new like Gonzaga (21-2) or Arizona (19-2) moves to the top. Whoever gets there, no need to get comfortable. Chances are it wont last.

PAGE 14

So we bumped everybody up and we had Brady Hayes win (us) a big point. Noah McGinnis came out and played for us at No. 4. And he won a big point. McGinnis defeated Weeki Wachees Jason Morton 8-4. Citrus No. 5 seed Joe Kelly continues his undefeated streak at his position (2-0 for the season thus far), winning a tightly contested match over Sam Kartuzinski 9-8. The doubles matches did not go the same way they did Tuesday for Citrus when it swept Lecanto. The opposite occurred Friday evening as Weeki Wachee claimed both contests. The No. 1 Citrus doubles team consisting of Everett and Pospiech were no match for Weeki Wachees Rosser and Mulleavey as the Hornet twosome dominated the day 8-2 over the Canes. It wasnt so lopsided in the No. 2 doubles match as McGinnis and Hayes pushed the Hornet team of Jensen and Morton to a tiebreaker in the final game before Weeki Wachee pulled out an 8-7 victory. In doubles, we almost could have won the decisive point, Martone said. Im just proud of them. Citrus defense. For Hurricanes coach Larry Bishop, whose team is now 2-1 overall, it was a nice bookend to a busy opening week of the season. Thats exactly what we expect from Kelly every time she goes out there, Bishop said. We were trying to put together a complete game. We had no errors, Bishop added, ... its one of those ballgames that everyone enjoys being a part of. Amy Abramowich, Kellys twin sister, drove in the lone runs of the contest on a two-run single with one out and the bases loaded in the third inning. Kelly Abramowich, who walked, and April Desomma, who singled, each scored on the hit. Emily Ferreira also singled in the frame. For Crystal River (1-1 overall), Tiffany MacDonald was the hard-luck loser; the Pirate pitcher tossed four innings total, just facing trouble in the fateful third inning. McCale Wilson relieved MacDonald and tossed three scoreless innings of relief. This is our first real competition, Crystal River coach Lanna Wentworth said. Our girls have a long way to go. After this, were just focusing on the rest of the season. With Kelly Abramowich toeing the rubber for the Hurricanes, Crystal River had to be nearly perfect. Unfortunately, the Pirates couldnt get anything going with its bats. Their pitcher pretty much owned us all night long, Wentworth said. We had our opportunities but we couldnt get any runs across the plate. Crystal River plays 6:30 p.m. Monday at Trinity Catholic while Citrus travels to Lake Weir for a 7 p.m. start Tuesday. In addition to the alley-oop assist, Franklin (15 points, six boards) had two steals down the stretch to help the Canes dominate the final 1:30 of overtime before West Port hit a pair of meaningless 3s in the waning seconds. When I saw everyone behind me, I thought about dunking it myself, but I thought it would look better if I threw it to Devin (Pryor), Franklin said on the highlight play. We practice it every day. With the game tied 20-20 midway through the second quarter, Citrus gradually built up a 28-22 advantage for the half. The Wolf Pack were 4-of17 from the floor in the second period, but stayed alive with an aggressive defense that yielded nine steals and a couple of blocked shots. The early half of the third quarter belonged to West Port as it erased its deficit and climbed to a 37-32 lead on a 3 by Maxwell with 4:35 remaining in the period. But Citrus kept its poise and stemmed the Wolf Pack rally before it turned into something like the 23-2 West Port push that overwhelmed the Canes earlier in the season. We were able to regain our footing and keep West Ports runs down to a reasonable level, Densmore said. The Canes took back the lead on a layup by Lynn with 3:10 to play in the fourth, and the teams exchanged buckets in the ensuing two minutes before going scoreless in the final minute. West Port junior Kordell Taylor had 12 points and senior Corey David added 11 points for the Wolf Pack. Citrus beat defending District 6A-6 champ Lecanto 56-42 in Wednesdays semifinal round. The Canes and West Port, winners over Central on Wednesday and 6A-6 runner-ups a season ago, split during the regular season with each enjoying double-digit home victories.

It was only fitting Cotton Owens was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame by David Pearson, the driver who won him a championship and was a devoted friend long after their racing careers ended. Pearson, a member of the second class for the Hall, inducted former driver and car owner Owens in Friday nights ceremony. Owens died at 88 in June, weeks after learning he had been voted into the Halls fourth class. His inclusion was pushed for by both Pearson and Bud Moore, a member of the inaugural class. The two were among Owens closest friends and the three were nearly inseparable around Spartanburg, S.C. He was a good guy, and my friend, and one of the best friends I had, Pearson said. Every Sunday after church Id go pick him up, been that way for years. Everybody thought when we were split up we were mad at each other. Pearson won 27 races driving for Owens, as well as the 1966 championship. Owens won nine races as a driver, then transitioned into ownership. He finished second in points in 1959 to Hall of Famer Lee Petty, and won more than 100 races in NASCARs modified division. He was named one of NASCARs 50 greatest drivers in 1998. In our family book, there was no better racer than Cotton Owens, grandson Kyle Davis said in accepting Owens induction. He took great pride in the fact he could build a car from the ground up. ... He was a wizard turning wenches and behind the wheel. Herb Thomas was remembered as a hard worker who never forgot his farming roots during his induction. Thomas was the first of the five inductees honored in a class that also included former champions Buck Baker, Rusty Wallace and innovative mechanic and crew chief Leonard Wood. Thomas induction was opened by current NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, and was accepted by Thomas son, Joel. Thomas, the first driver to win two NASCAR championships, died in 2000. A two-time champion at NASCARs top level, he also finished second in points twice and ended the year in the top two in four consecutive seasons from 1951-54. Thomas won 48 races and ranks 13th on the career wins list. Joel Thomas said his father returned to working on the family tobacco farm in Olivia after his retirement. He was always kind and fair to everyone, and wasnt afraid of hard work, Joel Thomas said. He operated his own saw mill and almost 50 years later was excited to teach me how to run it. When dad finally retired from racing in 1962, he worked on the farm with his family for many years. Those were wonderful years.

Say it aint so Sorry, but yes, it appears that longtime open-wheel star Dario Franchitti has split with his wife, actress Ashley Judd. Therefore, for fans on the stock-car side of the tracks, one of the remaining reasons to watch IndyCar has apparently lawyered up and packed the hauler. The split isnt a rst among racers, but this probably is: News of the split was made of cial in a statement to People Magazine. Kinda glad Chris Economaki isnt around to hear that. Why does the name Tyler Walker sound familiar?He ran some NASCAR in Trucks and Nationwide before a drug suspension six years ago. He won big in open-wheel dirt-track stuff before that, including the World of Outlaws, where his post-victory back ips inspired Carl Edwards to begin the same practice (remember when Carl had reason to back ip?). Anyway, Walker was arrested last week after a high-speed chase that stretched from Nevada to Arizona and nally Utah. If hed done that 50 years ago, hed be a legendary renegade. Today, hes a defendant. Is Bill Romanowski in for the long haul?When it comes to NFL stars getting into NASCAR, there have been many more shorttimers (Dan Marino, Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, etc.) than keepers (Joe Gibbs). So dont look for Romos NASCAR tenure to rival his 16-year NFL career.

AP/MATT SAYLES One of IndyCars biggest stars (and Dario Franchitti, of course).News-Journal le photoHe grew up in Daytona Beach and was known as Fireball Is it any wonder he was fast? WEEKLY DRIVER RANKINGS BASED ON BEHAVIOR AND PERFORMANCE Franchitti Judd Chip Ganassi is the only car owner to have entries in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, IZOD IndyCar Series and Grand-Am Rolex Series. Ganassi Racing has kicked carburetor in IndyCar and Grand-Am for the past decade. His sports-car team just won the Rolex 24 At Daytona. In the stock-car garage, Ganassi has struggled, particularly his team led by driver Juan Pablo Montoya. Ganassi said he wanted Montoya to drive the last stint in the 24 with the hopes it would kick-start Montoyas NASCAR fortunes in 2013. This was the exchange with the media following the Rolex 24: First, how did it work out that (Montoya) was going to be the last guy in the car? Was that just the rotation of it, or you speci cally wanted him? Second, you alluded to this, how does this help him going forward with the Sprint Cup season and with NASCAR stuff coming up? You know, we sit down at the beginning of the race and we have a driver rotation. But the good thing about Timmy Keene, he runs that team week in and week out, and he calls the shots on that car. You know, he changes it up for whatever reason, and then its not the rst time hes done that. Everybody contributed, and everybody was a part of the victory, and it just happened to work out that way that we wanted to be you know, its important at different times of the race when youre looking at other people and who theyre putting in their car, what the other team rotations are. Thats a part of it. Youre looking at other team rotations, youre looking at your own team and how your night is going, how youre going at dawn, you know, whos having a good race. You leave a guy in for an extra stint or two, and if hes having a good night, things are smooth, hes calm, hes feeling good these cars are not people friendly these cars are not easy to drive for long periods of time. The forces that get put on your body and what have you. Some of the guys I have are up there in years and they have back issues and things, so if things are good, we leave them in, and if theyre not, we take them out. Going forward, obviously when you start off with any kind of victory, I mean, I think the rst thing I said to him when he crossed the nish line, I said, Hey, man, welcome back to Victory Lane. Thats a big shot in the arm for any driver in any series to start off the season with a win, and obviously its a completely different car than hes driving on a full-time basis, but a win is a win, and it all adds up and it all means something. Theres not a driver out there thatll tell you its not a motivating factor to start the season off with a win.Ganassi hopes Rolex 24 win sparks Montoya ROLEX 24 REWIND Dario Franchitti vs. Ashley Judd: The celebrity race driver/actress couple announced they plan to divorce this year.

But did you know that Martin, who shares the No. 55 with Brian Vickers and Waltrip, can run for championship honors? Not the drivers championship but the car owners championship. While the top 12 drivers after 26 races go into the Chase championship, the owners points formula doesnt change, which means Martins 24 starts in the No. 55 could spearhead a run for the title. Vickers has the wheel nine times, Waltrip three. It cant happen, you say? In the 2008 Nationwide Series, Clint Bowyer won the drivers title for Richard Childress while Jack Roush captured the car owners championip, using multiple drivers. Stewart using Pearsons pathSome believe David Pearson was NASCARs greatest stock-car driver based on his percentage of victories to starts and the fact that he ran for Cup Series championship honors four times and won three titles. Pearsons treasured 1976 Daytona 500 victory took two decades of trying. He won the Firecracker 250/400 (now Coke Zero 400) four times before earning his only 500 trophy. Fast-forward to 2013 and we nd 41-year-old Tony Stewart sitting on four 400 wins and running out of at-bats in the 500. This will be his 15th attempt. Stewart can take some comfort from Dale Earnhardts career playbook. The Intimidator won the 500 on his 20th attempt.Run on dirtIn an effort to pump new life into the Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR scheduled a race on the dirt July 24 at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. It appears to have worked. The track announced a grandstand sellout last week. For those venturing to Speedweeks in Daytona Beach for the Feb. 22 Truck race, you might want to also plan a trip to Volusia Speedway Park, about 20 miles from the big track. Apparently, a load of Truck regulars plan to play in the dirt a couple of nights to get a feel for the slip-andslide-style of racing.

Cooper skips trip to NY for Dyngus Day BUFFALO, N.Y. CNNs Anderson Cooper wont be in Buffalo, N.Y., to celebrate the citys heritage on Dyngus Day, a holiday that made his shows Ridiculist and left him giggling uncontrollably on the air last year. Dyngus Day is a PolishAmerican day-afterEaster tradition celebrating the end of Lent. It features people playfully sprinkling each other with water and swatting one another with pussy willows to show their amorous interest. Through a protracted fit of laughter last year, Cooper said, Its so stupid, really so stupid. He later said he was referring to his giggling, not the holiday. Organizers set up a website to try to persuade Cooper to attend and offered to name him the festivals first pussy willow prince. But Cooper tweeted Thursday hes really sad he wont be able to. He said it sounds like a lot of fun.Cromwell arrested at Wis. regents meeting MADISON, Wis. Actor James Cromwell has been arrested for allegedly disrupting a University of Wisconsin Board of Regents meeting where he was protesting animal testing. University police Sgt. Brent Gruber said the 73-year-old Cromwell was arrested and ticketed on a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Cromwell and an activist from an animal-rights group also arrested were released from jail by Thursday afternoon. They held two large signs showing a cat with metal implanted in its head at a UWMadison lab, while shouting about the treatment of cats Thursday morning. The director of the schools Research Animal Resources Center said federal agriculture officials have found their claims to be false. Cromwell was nominated for an Academy Award for the 1995 film Babe. Other credits include L.A. Confidential, The Green Mile and The Artist. Porn star Jeremy in hospital a while LOS ANGELES Porn star Ron Jeremys agent said the prolific actor will likely stay at a Los Angeles hospital a while to recover from an aneurysm near his heart. Agent Mike Esterman said Jeremy isnt allowed to receive visitors or deliveries following a procedure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last week. Esterman said he doesnt expect the 59-year-old to leave the hospital for some time. Jeremy had a heavy feeling in his chest and drove himself to the hospital last Wednesday. Associated PressNEW YORK Grammy nominee Ryan Truesdell felt like a jazz archaeologist as he sifted through thousands of pages of manuscripts in a safe in the apartment of renowned jazz arranger Gil Evans, best known for his collaborations with trumpeter Miles Davis. The 32-year-old Truesdells two-year odyssey would take him to university music archives and the personal collections of musicians who worked with Evans. He eventually discovered more than 50 previously unrecorded arrangements by Evans, who died in 1988. Truesdells mentor and Evans former assistant, arranger-composer Maria Schneider, likened his find to buying an old house only to discover a box of lost Beethoven manuscripts in the attic. Schneider encouraged him to bring the arrangements to life. He raised money through the fan-funding ArtistShare platform and self-produced his debut album as a leader, Centennial: Newly Discovered Works of Gil Evans, released May 13, 2012 Evans 100th birthday. Centennial includes 10 previously unrecorded Evans arrangements. Half of them date to Evans formative years with the Claude Thornhill Orchestra in the late s and s when he experimented with introducing classical influences to large ensemble jazz. The time span stretches to 1971 with a version of Kurt Weills Barbara Song and a 19-minute medley of three Evans tunes the arranger wrote for his 24-piece dream band including instruments not typically found in a jazz big band such as oboe, bassoon and English horn. Now, Centennial has been nominated for three Grammys at Sundays awards show in Los Angeles. Truesdell got a nod for best large jazz ensemble album. Evans was posthumously nominated for best instrumental arrangement for How About You, a 1947 chart for the Thornhill band, and instrumental arrangement accompanying vocalist(s) for Look to the Rainbow, performed by Brazilian singer Luciana Souza, originally written for Astrud Gilbertos 1965 album of the same name, but never used. Truesdell became infatuated with Evans music as a Madison, Wis., high school student when he came across Davis 1958 Porgy and Bess album while searching for recordings by saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. After receiving his masters degree in jazz composition at the New England Conservatory of Music, Truesdell began immersing himself in Evans music for selfish reasons to hone his composing and arranging skills. His search for original scores led him to Evans widow, Anita, and her sons, Miles and Noah. Miles Evans, who now leads the Gil Evans Orchestra, said Truesdells passion for the music led the family to make him the first person to receive full access to the archives stored in his fathers apartment in the Westbeth Artists Community in Greenwich Village. Truesdell, who coproduced Schneiders Grammy-winning 2007 album Sky Blue, used ArtistShare so he could retain artistic control and perform Evans music exactly as he intended it to be played. Many of the featured soloists such as saxophonists Steve Wilson and Donny McCaslin, clarinetist Scott Robinson and pianist Frank Kimbrough are musicians Truesdell worked with in Schneiders orchestra. Truesdell said at times he was ready to throw in the towel, but Evans spirit kept him going. I brought a picture of Gil conducting in the studio with Miles and taped it on my conductors podium, so I always had Gil right there, Truesdell said. You cant play this music live without having Gil present.Hidden treasures Birthday A number of impressive changes are likely to be made to your game plan in the year ahead. Youve learned a lot from many past experiences, and now you should be ready to select some more fruitful targets.

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Better insight can be acquired about something youve been viewing from a purely intellectual level. Two important factors you need to consider are your feelings and emotions. Aries (March 21-April 19) If there is a project youd like to launch but havent done so for one reason or another, you might get the perfect opportunity to let er rip. It would be a mistake to put it off any longer. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Begin to establish some loftier goals than those to which youve been accustomed. Even if you fall short of your mark, youre still likely to exceed any of your old targets. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Dont neglect any opportunity to acquire some interesting information that could be pertinent to your present affairs. Youll find more than a few ways to use it to your advantage. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Listen attentively to any ideas brought to you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Youre not going to find a better day to start the diet or exercise program youve been promising yourself youd begin. The odds are better than usual that youll reach your goal. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It appears youll get your chance to exercise greater management of something in which youve wanted to play a more active role. Dont hesitate to assert yourself. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A constructive adjustment that could have an effect on your entire family can be made. Even if not everybody is ready to participate, theyll hop on board later. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It would help you immensely to make your immediate plans more concise and orderly. Put your focus only on the things you intend to complete within the next two weeks. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be alert for financial trends that could be personally rewarding. However, dont expect an immediate harvest from what you plant now; give it some time to mature.

Spotlight onPEOPLE FloridaLOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning n umbers, Page B4 .ENTERTAINMENT Page B6SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2013 CHRISTALBOTT AP music writerNASHVILLE, Tenn. Chances are you never heard of Al Walser before his surprise Grammy nomination for best dance recording. Even more surprising? Neither had most Grammy voters. For the second year in a row, the Grammys are facing criticism for allowing a nominee in a field where some said he lacks credibility. Walsers inclusion along with better-known artists Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, Calvin Harris and Skrillex set off complaints about The Recording Academys Grammy365 social media platform that allows members to lobby each other when it comes time to vote. Critics pointed out the problem when little-known singersongwriter Linda Chorney scored a nomination in the Americana category last year and took up the cry again this year when Walsers I Cant Live Without You popped up in the dance category. Bill Freimuth, The Recording Academys vice president of awards, said the social media program is working as intended, allowing independent and less well-known artists to raise their profile. But its likely the Grammy365 program will be continually tweaked over time and is being looked at by a subcommittee that could make recommendations for changes in the future. One change was made last year: Members were able to opt out of receiving the numerous pitches that come from The Recording Academys thousands of members during the balloting period. Walser has taken a lot of heat over the nomination, but feels like he used the system as it was designed and Grammy officials concur. He makes no apologies and notes artists at major labels use tools like publicists to promote their work. The Grammy365 site is simply another tool, and one that is becoming increasingly well known. Sunshine said the Grammys could suffer a real blow in the eyes of the EDM community if Walser were to win at the Feb. 10 awards show in Los Angeles. He said the short list of acts snubbed by Walsers inclusion starts and ends with French DJ and producer David Guetta, an international star with several hits to choose from during the nominating period. Not everyone agrees Walser derailed the process, however. Rich Bengloff, President of the American Association of Independent Music, said Walsers inclusion is a sign the Grammys has things right, not wrong.Grammys face more criticism CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE TodaysHOROSCOPE Associated PressComposer and arranger Ryan Truesdell is nominated for three Grammy Awards for his album, Centennial Newly Discovered Works of Gil Evans.

Tips on tipping The headline caught my eye Why are Christians such bad tippers? It was a story responding to something that recently went viral on the Internet when a restaurant server was fired after posting a copy of a customers credit card receipt online. Apparently, a pastor in St. Louis ate at an Applebees and when her bill came she scratched out the 18 percent gratuity that is often standard restaurant policy for large groups and wrote a big zero, adding, I give God 10 percent, why do you get 18? She signed it Pastor Alois Bell. I cant begin to tell you how insanely furious that made me when I first heard about it, for a number of reasons. My youngest daughter has been a restaurant server for more than a decade, and she says church people are some of the worst customers. She says many not all, but even one is too many are whiny and demanding. They ask rude questions such as, Why See GRACE/ Page C4 Sex trumps doctrine, again Back in 1969, the same year as Woodstock, Gallup Poll researchers asked Americans this moral question: Do you think it is wrong for a man and a woman to have sexual relations before marriage, or not? Yes, wrong, responded 68 percent of those polled, while 21 percent said, No, not wrong. By 1973, the traditionalist total affirming that premarital sex was wrong was down to 47 percent and the minority of those disagreeing rose to 43 percent. In 1991, only 40 percent considered premarital sex immoral, with 54 percent disagreeing. Anyone paying attention to the moral math could see the trend. By 2001 the number of Americans who took the conservative stance was leveling off at 38 percent, but the percentage of those embracing the liberal, progressive position was up to 60 percent.

And now they have a Facebook page to prove it. Its a way to put something out there for people to contact us, said Robin Dober, who is known with her husband Tony Prater as the go-to person for all things Jewish in Twin Falls. Which, incidentally, isnt much, yet. Though the couple call the citys Jews a close-knit family, Prater estimates Twin Falls is home to only about 50 of the faith and so far, four Facebook friends. Prater, who designed and inaugurated the page on Jan. 14, isnt disappointed. I havent had a real vehicle yet to get it (Facebook page) out to the Jewish community, he said. We are an outreach for Jewish people in Boise and the Wood River Valley and people elsewhere who can connect with the Jewish community here if they want to. Prater designed another Facebook page in 2010 called Jews in Southern Idaho, but eventually discontinued it in favor of the current more clearly defined version. The first one was just too broad and drew people from a too-wide range of places, he said. The 54-year-old Twin Falls native and Dober, 48, are resolute in the face of a daunting reality: Twin Falls has no synagogue and no rabbi, and is unlikely to get either in the near future. But they and other active members of Beth Chaverim, the name Prater coined in December 2011 for Twin Falls Jewish congregation, stick together like matzo balls in chicken broth. The title in Hebrew means house of friends, and is reflected in the Facebook pages name: Beth Chaverim of Southern Idaho. I chose the name because we are a house of friends, and people feel a real warmth and welcoming in it, said Prater, who as the congregations lay leader presides over services and prayers when fellow Jews gather, usually about once a month. The latest gathering celebrated a local bar mitzvah a coming-of-age ceremony for Jewish boys though members also routinely celebrate Jewish holidays such as Passover, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Hanukkah and Sukkot.

Bennett and his wife, Luella, came to Crystal River in 1883, one of the first things they did was start a church. On their first Sunday as new residents, they started a Sunday school under a pine tree in their front yard, inviting the local saw mill workers to attend Sunday services, gospel singing and Bible reading under a tent. Fast-forward 130 years, First Presbyterian Church of Crystal River is still alive and well, serving God by serving the community. At 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, the public is invited to join the congregation at special anniversary worship service. The church is at 1501 SE U.S. 19, Crystal River. The original church, built in 1889, still stands, said Kristi Rosende, First Presbyterians clerk of session. Its now Calvary Baptist Church on Ninth Street over by the middle school. Rosende said Sundays anniversary service will feature music from various periods in the churchs history, as well as some people dressing in period outfits. Also, they will be using what remains of the antique furniture from the original church the original pulpit, two chairs, a communion table, candlesticks and a cross. Leading up to this weve been having what we call A Minute from the Minutes where we read things from the minutes from various years, she said. Thats how they learned that in the 1950s the church had Easter sunrise service at the beach and they would haul their organ all the way there and back.

Come on over to His house, your spirits will be lifted !!! SERVICING THE COMMUNITIES OF CITRUS SPRINGS, BEVERLY HILLS, BROOKSVILLE, DUNNELLON, INVERNESS 000DJMO arent you in church? if shes working on a Sunday. (Um, so I can wait on you?) She said when she asked one customer if shed like a glass of wine with her meal the woman sat upright and said, Young lady, Im a Christian and I dont drink wine. My daughter said she bit her tongue to keep from saying, Jesus drank wine are you saying youre better than Jesus? She said she also wanted to say, Well, maybe if you did have some wine you wouldnt be so mean. Also, she said church people like to leave gospel tracts with their stingy tips sometimes tracts that look like real money. Id say unless youre leaving a generous tip, dont do that. What bothered me about the pastors comment on her bill where do I even start? How about thinking her tithe of 10 percent absolves her from her duty to give to others? Many restaurant servers earn well below minimum wage and depend on tips to pay their rent and feed their families. How about her arrogance by calling herself pastor but not acting with humility, mercy and kindness? It turned out that after the Internet backlash the pastor apologized for her lapse in my character and judgment, as she told The Smoking Gun. She said she realized her comment on the receipt brought embarrassment to her church and her ministry. Id add that it probably made God blush, except God knows that his people are sinful and hes not at all surprised when we act sinfully. Still, if we want to call ourselves Christians, and if we want others to be attracted to Christ, we have to stop being so arrogant and obnoxious in Jesus name. In the Why are Christians such bad tippers? story, the writer, Karen Prior, made an interesting point, that Christians are among the most sacrificially giving people and there must be something deeper than just stinginess going on when it comes to meager tipping. Prior suggested it has more to do with bad theology than bad manners. She said (and I agree) that many Christians divide the world into secular or worldy and sacred or spiritual, thus elevating what they consider to be spiritual and demonizing what they consider to be secular. Therefore, giving to Gods work is considered good because its spiritual and using money on secular activities, such as eating out, is less good. Also in this line of thinking, certain occupations are higher (pastors), which makes others lesser (restaurant servers). Im not a theologian, but I dont think God uses the same separations as we do. I dont think he considers giving our money to a Christian charity better than leaving a tip for a server who puts up with our bad manners. In fact, he might consider that even better. The Bible tells those who call themselves Christ followers: So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God (1 Corinthians 10:30-32). Maybe in Gods eyes everything we do is spiritual; everything we do, whether its in church or in a restaurant, reflects his name. Maybe if we remember that we wouldnt turn so many off to Jesus.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Things have been pretty steady recently among the Americans who are religiously active, noted Ed Stetzer, the president of LifeWay Research, which is linked to the 16 million-member Southern Baptist Convention. The real action has been on the other side of the spectrum, among the people who are atheists, or agnostics, or who have no affiliation with any particular religious group. Then you have the people that I call the mushy middle, who remain connected to some religious faith, sort of, but not active in any real sense of the word. ... Thats where were seeing people changing their minds on sexuality. The results of a recent LifeWay survey suggest that Americans who have, in recent decades, embraced premarital sex as a moral norm are continuing to edit their beliefs to go with the flow of the Sexual Revolution. The hot-button issue at the moment, of course, is same-sex marriage. This is a political and cultural puzzle that for believers in various world religions is closely connected to a number of ancient doctrines linked to sexual morality. According to a November 2012 survey by LifeWay, only 37 percent of adults in the United States affirmed traditional teachings that homosexual behavior is sinful. This finding was significant since 44 percent took that stance in another survey asking the same question only 14 months earlier. The number of respondents saying, I dont know also rose 4 percent, to 17 percent. What happened in between? The researchers were very aware, said Stetzer, that halfway between these two surveys President Barack Obama announced a longexpected change of heart and openly endorsed same-sex marriage. While the presidents words may have helped move some of the numbers, the change among African-Americans appeared to be minimal, with 36 percent saying homosexual acts were sinful in the first survey and 34 percent in the survey 14 months later. That shift was within the surveys margin of error. As would be expected, Americans identifying as born-again, evangelical or fundamentalist Christians were at 73 percent most likely to call homosexual behavior a sin. Only 33 percent of Catholics in this survey agreed. A clear pew gap also emerged, as usual, with 87 percent of those who said they attend worship services once a week or more affirming the traditional doctrinal stance. On the other side, only 17 percent of those who said they never attend worship services said that homosexual behavior is a sin. In light of these trends, its easy to see why the Rev. Louie Giglio, an evangelical leader in campaigns against human trafficking, was accused of anti-gay rhetoric and forced to withdraw from giving the benediction at the second Obama inauguration rite. In a sermon recorded 15 years earlier, Giglio had said: If you look at the counsel of the word of God Old Testament, New Testament you come quickly to the conclusion that homosexuality is not an alternate lifestyle. ... Homosexuality is sin. It is sin in the eyes of God, and it is sin according to the word of God. Clearly, these words are highly offensive to defenders of the Sexual Revolution. Indeed, times have changed. Giglios words, said Stetzer, were simply mainstream evangelical expressions of what traditional Christians have believed for 2,000 years. ... But what we are learning is that a growing majority of Americans no longer feel comfortable with words like sin.Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news.RELIGIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, FEBRUARY9, 2013 C5 Special Event or Weekly Services Please Call Beverly at 564-2912 For Advertising Information Pastor Terry Roberts Ph: 726-0201 Independent Fundamental Cross road Bap tist Chu rch 000DIWC Youre invited to our Services Sunday School 10:00 AM Sunday 10:45 AM & 6:00 PM Wednesday 7:00 PM 5335 E.

Come on over to His house, your spirits will be lifted !!! 000DSZ4 gel in 2006 after a freak car accident left several traveling Israeli camp counselors stranded, and one hospitalized, in Twin Falls. Dober and Prater opened their home to the youngsters, and when they left after about a week, Dober had an epiphany. I realized that there was a reason I was here in Twin Falls, sort of like a stranger in a strange land, and that was to be the person who pulls the Jewish community together, Dober said. Dober moved to Twin Falls 14 years ago to be with Prater. She spent much of her childhood in Connecticut and had been in Boston for about 12 years prior to her move west. I missed the sense of Jewish community I had back East, and the Israeli kids rekindled that sense in me, she said. It did not occur to me that there would be no Jewish community here when I moved. Hansen resident Ann Alvarez, 69, another member of the Jew Crew, met Dober in 2003 and was soon in the fold of the fledgling Jewish community. Its interesting how it all came about, because all of us has a little piece of it and a story that revolves around Tony and Robin, Alvarez said. Traditionally, we have all gotten together through word of mouth. Twin Falls history, however, points to a far stronger Jewish presence and this not so long ago. There were a lot of Jewish businesses in town in the late s and early s, Prater said. I went to school with all of these Jewish kids whose families had these businesses. But it didnt last. As more and more Jewish students went off to college and never returned, the vibrant Jewish connection suffered. The Jewish community went from decent to nothing in no time, Prater said. Now, though, some other Jewish people are showing up in town that we havent seen before and didnt know existed. And once word of the congregations new Facebook page gets out, the couple hopes the Jew Crew will continue to expand. It would be nice if there were more people to share the outreach responsibilities so we could grow the community, Dober said. And all those kids who attended college 35 years ago and never returned to Twin Falls? The Jew Crew wants to avoid that this time. I think its important that our younger adults and children become part of our group so it will carry on, Prater concluded. And hes hoping the new Facebook page might just do the trick.

This class, the way I understand it, is a group of people who go through skills training, group skills and are informed of current issues, community resources and the future of Citrus County. My wife, Kathryn, who is now the development director of The Path, went through the course in 2010 and was thrilled with what she learned. Some of the stops of the tour during the several weeks of training included places like ours you might not be aware of, and the details of the operation. I was amazed at how good their questions were. They seemed to have a very good grasp about the food, how it helps the shelter and the importance of social enterprise for the future of The Path and for Citrus County. Most were not aware of the depth and the amount of food that was being grown on our 10 acres (soon to be 15). After showing them one of our homemade machines, we all went into the field to sample the fresh food right at our fingertips. This was an adventure for some; never to have experienced eating their food live. We can do this because we do not use any sprays like pesticides. This is when we believe most of the vitamins are present. This group had one question that kept popping up: What about vertical growing or what is being termed hydroponics? This is what I have boiled it down to in the years of farming. It is very difficult and even impossible for man to recreate what nature does. You may be somewhat successful in producing something similar, but in my experience, it is at a greater cost and you wont get the results you thought you would. Here it is simply; if you have the land, farm the old-fashioned way. It is the best way to get your nutrients. Otherwise, you are binding yourself to chemical inputs. Right now, we are turning down land because we do not have enough labor and we are looking for interns where we pay for the room and board in exchange for the labor for the farm as it is. Vertical farming or not! As for the leadership group, I hope I inspired them as much as they inspired me. What a great group of people and ideas coming up in our county. We should be proud. Four people in the group called my wife and signed up for the cooperative that night. There is still time to sign up for the spring crop and come to the March 1 meeting, and help support social enterprise in Citrus County.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY9, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Henry David Thoreau said, When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest. Many years ago, an expert married couple played together, and whenever the wife was the declarer, the husband turned on his portable CD player. As you might have guessed, they are not still married. But if running tunes through your mind helps you to relax and think more clearly, do it. In todays deal, what do you think of the bidding? After West leads his fourth-highest heart against three no-trump, what should South do? The South hand has only 19 high-card points, but it has a very good five-card suit, one 10 and two nines. It also has seven control points (ace 2; king 1), which is normal for a two-no-trump opening. So I agree with Souths bid. And North, with 4-3-3-3 distribution, was playing the percentages in not using Stayman. Declarer starts with seven top tricks: four spades, one heart, one diamond and one club. And there are at least three more winners available from the club suit. The original declarer, though, was tone-deaf. Thinking West had led away from the heart king, South played low from the board. However, East won with his king and shifted to the diamond king. Declarer ducked, took the next diamond, crossed to dummy with a heart, and ran the club jack. But when the finesse lost, the contract went down two. If South had been humming, he would have won the first trick with dummys heart ace and taken the club finesse. Then he would have won at least 10 tricks.

I told my kids if they didnt pick up their messes, I would hire a maid. One day, they came home to a clean, organized house. I said the maid had come. When I handed out my childrens allowance for the week, I took back the money it cost to hire the maid. I then told them that the maid was going to the mall to buy herself something really nice. I came home with a new top and thanked my kids for making the maid so happy. From then on, I just had to remind my kids that if they didnt pick up after themselves, I would hire the maid again. Honolulu Housewife Dear Honolulu: We love it. Heres more: From Louisiana: My psychologist said, You teach people how to treat you. This starts when your children are born. A parent has to tolerate poor behavior from the beginning, or their children would not expect to get away with such deplorable actions. Illinois: Nagging is not part of a parents job. Nagging is a contest of wills. At an early age, parents should instill in the child what is proper and correct. There are developmental tasks that a person learns throughout life, and if those tasks are not learned at the critical points, it becomes much more difficult. The parent is not a buddy, but a person who is due respect and obedience. Tired should count the days until the kids are 18, and if they dont shape up, invite them to move out. Georgia: We got our teens to help with chores by making sure their chores were done as a condition for getting to use the car on the weekend. Missouri: When our children reached the age of 10, they were told to pick up their clothes, make their beds, put their dishes in the dishwasher, help set the table and do other tasks. There was no nagging. If my son didnt put his dirty clothes in the hamper, I simply picked them up, folded them and put them back in his drawers. His breakfast was served on the same dishes he had not placed in the dishwasher the night before. If he didnt put his towels in the laundry, they were used until they could walk on their own. Wyoming: I agree that my kids bedrooms were their responsibility, but I would no longer allow them to trash the common areas. If they left dirty dishes in the living room, I assumed they still wanted them, so I would take the dishes to their rooms. If they left toys or clothes in the common areas, I assumed they didnt care about them and threw them out. I had some major backlash, but it worked. It was a joy to see them scrambling around in the morning cleaning up their stuff before they left for the day. Florida: You were right on when you said to close the kids bedroom doors and teach them how to do laundry. And enforce the rule that anything left in a common area when you go to bed will be confiscated. They can earn it back by doing chores. New York: Your advice to close the door to a teenagers messy room is totally wrong. I finally had to move out of my home because of my sloppy 22year-old stepdaughters disrespect and her dads lack of responsibility. He would ask her to please wash her dishes with hot soapy water, but she would use the stale water left in the basin from the night before, and I would have to rewash them. The only way I knew things were clean was if I washed them. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Coptic Christian pope discusses constitution AL-MUHARRAQ MONASTERY, Egypt Egypts Coptic Christian pope sharply criticized the countrys Islamist leadership in an interview with The Associated Press, saying the new constitution is discriminatory and Christians should not be treated as a minority. The comments by Pope Tawadros II reflected the unusually vocal political activist stance he has taken since being enthroned in November as the spiritual leader of the Copts, the main community of Egypts Christians. His papacy comes as Christians are increasingly worried over the power of Islamists in the country and the rule of President Mohammed Morsi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood. Tawadros dismissed a national dialogue that Morsi has been holding, ostensibly as a way to broaden decision-making amid criticism that his government concentrates power in the Brotherhood. Most opposition parties have refused to join the dialogue, as has the Coptic Church, calling it mere window dressing.Imams visit Holocaust site in France DRANCY, France Dozens of French imams have visited a Holocaust memorial in Drancy in an effort to show Islam is a tolerant religion. The Muslim leaders, who traveled from all over France, gathered Monday night at the site of the former detention camp where around 65,000 Jews were held before being deported to extermination camps, mainly to Auschwitz, during World War II. The event, the first of its kind since the Drancy memorial opened last September, was attended by Interior Minister Manuel Valls who said it shows that dialogue, tolerance and the understanding of other religions is indispensable in fighting against anti-Semitism and fanaticism. Some imams present traveled to Israel last year to pray at the tomb of the Jewish children gunned down in Toulouse last March by Mohamed Merah.New Notre Dame bells make history PARIS The cathedral of Notre Dame French for our lady has finally got the prima donna worthy of its name. Weighing in at six and a half tons or 6,000 kilograms of glistening bronze, this lady is no ordinary person: shes a bell named Mary. Mary is in fact the largest and loudest of nine new, gargantuan Notre Dame bells being blessed Saturday in the cathedrals nave by Archbishop Andre Armand Vingt-Trois. The nine casts were ordered for the cathedrals 850th birthday to replace the discordant ding dang of the previous four 19th century chimes. After the originals bells including the original Mary were destroyed in the French Revolution, the replacements were widely said to be Frances most out-of-tune church bells. Theres some irony that in Victor Hugos classic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the solitary bell-ringer Quasimodo was deaf. Jean-Marie, Maurice, BenoitJoseph, Steven, Marcel, Dennis, Anne-Genevieve and Gabriel will ring together with Mary to add a harmony to the French gothic landmark not heard since 1789. Travelers have come far and wide to catch a glimpse of the bronze giants on public display until Feb. 25.Minnesota governor orders flags half-staff ST. PAUL, Minn. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has ordered state flags be flown at half-staff in honor of Immortal Four Chaplains Day. Sunday is the 70th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the U.S. Army transport ship Dorchester off the coast of Greenland. In 1957, Congress established a national observance of the event that honors the four chaplains of difference faiths whose heroic acts saved the lives of many men. According to survivors, while the ship was sinking in 1943, the four chaplains went to each soldier to calm fears and hand out life jackets. When there were no more life jackets, the four chaplains removed their own life vests and gave them to soldiers. The chaplains went down with the ship.
