C12 000DY3O Resignation sends troubled church scrambling Associated PressVATICAN CITY With a few words in Latin, Pope Benedict XVI did Monday what no pope has done in more than half a millennium, announcing his resignation and sending the already troubled Catholic Church scrambling to replace the leader of its 1 billion followers by Easter. Not even his closest associates had advance word of the news, a bombshell that he dropped during a routine morning meeting of Vatican cardinals. And with no clear favorites to succeed him, another surprise likely awaits when the cardinals elect Benedicts successor next month. Without doubt this is a historic moment, said Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, a protege and former theology student of Benedicts who is considered a papal contender. Right now, 1.2 billion Catholics the world over are holding their breath. The move allows for a fasttrack conclave to elect a new pope, since the traditional nine days of mourning that would follow a popes death doesnt have to be observed. It also gives Benedict great Pope stuns the world Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation Monday, saying his strength of mind and body had diminished. Associated Press See RESIGN / Page A4 N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerThe one word on local Catholics lips Monday: Surprised. Early Monday morning, Pope Benedict XVI announced he will resign as Bishop of Rome, effective Feb. 28, stunning the world with his news. Its definitely unexpected a pope hasnt resigned since the 13th century, said the Rev. James Johnson, pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Inverness. The last pope to resign voluntarily was Gregory XII in 1415. Bishop Robert Lynch, bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, said in a statement released Monday, I have had the unique privilege in my own priestly life to come to know Josef Ratzinger well, and when he said shortly after his election as our Pope that he would resign if his health ever would not permit him to fulfill his responsibilities as he saw fit, I believed him. Lynch added, I repeat what I often said at the time of his election the church was given a leader with an incredible intellect, a pastors heart, and a very patient listener I am happy for him, that he is going to spend the rest of his days on earth at peace in prayer and study. And I shall always thank him for his love of the church. Lou Whittaker, principal of Pope John Paul II Catholic School in Lecanto, said the news was shocking, but also exciting because it gives the students the opportunity to witness the upcoming process of electing the next pope, which they did just eight years ago when Pope Benedict was elected April 19, 2005. I remember when Pope Benedict was chosen. We had the children sitting right in front of the television sets, and we were taking pictures of the expressions on their faces, she said. Then we were doing research right away who is this person and where does he come from? So, this will be a big focus for us, especially with the older kids. Its exciting because this doesnt happen very often.

M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The curtain may drop on plans for new seating at Curtis Peterson Auditorium, thanks to a budget crisis created in large part by Progress Energy Floridas smaller-than-expected 2012 tax payment. Citrus County School District officials are recommending the school board approve a bid worth $175,875 to replace the 1,054 seats at Curtis Peterson, which have been in place since the former Central Florida Community College built the auditorium in the late 1970s. Assistant superintendent of schools Kenny Blocker said many of the seats are worn and in poor shape.

Thats been on the radar to be done, Blocker said, referring to the seatreplacement project. Board members Pat Deutschman and Thomas Kennedy, however, wonder if this is the best time to be replacing auditorium seats. The district is facing a budget shortfall due to an unexpected drop in enrollment and the decision by Progress Energy and its parent company, Duke Energy, to pay $19 million in 2012 property taxes. County officials had expected a $35.1 million payment. Dukes decision to retire the nuclear plant could lead to an additional $6 million to $9 million cut from the companys tax payment this year, Progress Energy Florida President Alex Glenn said in a letter to county officials. School board members said they are looking at cuts this year and next year that do not impact the classroom. Deutschman said Monday each expense including new auditorium seats should be scrutinized. We need to question every single expense that we have coming out of capital outlay funds, she said. In todays economic reality, is it still the best use of our money? commented: I think it shows a humble man with good character. His statement talked about his health decline, and I admire a person who can step aside when they can no longer give to the job to the best of their abilities. As for the popes successor, Don Irwin, an active member of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Beverly Hills, said he would like to see Cardinal Timothy Dolan, from New York, as the next pope. Dolan has been called a rock star of the Catholic faith. Hes fresh and exciting; he smiles and laughs, gets involved and takes positions on things much more than Ive seen some of the others do, he said.

Fire crews from Homosassa arrived at the scene, 9795 W. Arms Drive, at 9:23 p.m. and found the 3,000-square-foot duplex apartment with flames showing in a kitchen window. According to Battalion Commander Keith Longs report, the blaze was brought under control quickly. The report stated the fire was contained in the kitchen area and its ceiling. The residents of the apartment escaped without injury. The fire was ruled accidental. Murray seeks school board seatFormer Citrus County School Board member Bill Murray is hoping Gov. Rick Scott appoints him to the position he lost in the August primary. Murray is one of eight applicants so far to replace Susan Hale, who resigned just two months after being sworn in to office. Hale defeated Murray, a two-term incumbent. One applicant, Michael Joey White, is no longer on the list of applicants, according to the governors press office. Applications are still being taken and there is no word when Scott may make the appointment. POPE Continued from Page A1 From staff reports

Income eligibility limits are established by federal income guidelines that must be at or below 150 percent of poverty level, as follows: Maximum annual income for a household of 1 is $16,755; 2 is $22,695; 3 is $28,635; and 4 is $34,575. (Add $5,940 for each additional person in the household.) P AT F AHERTY Staff writerLECANTO Inspired by the dire state of county finances, the Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County will spearhead an effort to develop positive solutions. It is a response to a budget presentation by County Administrator Brad Thorpe. Thorpe updated the alliance on the situation Monday in light of the property tax dispute with Duke Energy and its decision to retire the nuclear plant. We are about $15 million short on our current budget with Duke not paying what we expected, Thorpe said. It represents about $5.5 million to the board (county commission) and a little more to the schools. He cited its severe impact on the library system. Thorpe said of a $231 million budget, only $20 million is from property taxes and discretionary funds. Take $5 million out and you can see what the issue is, Thorpe said, repeating what he told the chamber. You could lay off every county employee and not balance the budget. He said it will be worse next year. Having the nuclear plant out of the tax system will mean the loss of another $4 million, raising the shortage to $11 million. Examples of discretionary spending that can be cut are parks and recreation and extension service programs. To balance the budget this year, the county borrowed from the vehicle trust fund, froze hiring and took some profits from utilities. Saying weve got to be positive, he stressed the impact this process was having on both county employees with 103 layoffs over the past four years or so and on county commissioners, who are being worn down by naysayers. Were all part of a family, he said, asking for the alliance to be supportive. Do we want to be the generation to shut the lights out in Citrus County? More taxes may be what it takes. He said they knew it was coming and have been trying to diversify through Port Citrus, the enterprise zone and the County Road 491 medical corridor. We cant give up hope, said Roy Carr. There are a lot of great things going on in this community. Dale McClellan suggested having the ag alliance get with the chamber and Economic Development Council to do something to show appreciation and offset the naysayers. Thorpe suggested those entities form a subcommittee and make recommendations or suggestions to the county. Mike Bays and Jimmy Brooks were selected to head up the effort. Dr. Philip Geist reported on farmers/citizens using the county canning center for surplus products and found it was too regulatory to consider commercial canning. He said it was an asset the alliance can help raise public awareness about and could be tied into home gardening education. Dudley Calfee urged people to be aware of where their produce comes from. Certain crops are in a battle with Mexico, he said. Tomatoes are going to lose, strawberries are fighting it out.

Ag Alliance hears about budget woes Brad Thorpe county administrator made presentation Monday to Agricultural Alliance. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerCHASSAHOWITZKA For the past 40 years, the First Baptist Church of Chassahowitzka on Miss Maggie Drive has been the little church that could. With an average of 40 members, theyve gone through their share of hard times. In 2005, the churchs pastor, Sunday school director and six Sunday school teachers all moved away and two members died. In 2010, their pastor, the late Rev. John Mattingly, had cancer in his jaw and tongue and preached on Sunday while taking chemotherapy during the week. The churchs leaky roof needed replacing there was a huge leaky spot right over where the choir sits on Sundays, among other places. So, the 40 or so members set out to raise the money needed for a new roof. Our goal was $12,000, said church member Mary Pelt. Since last April we raised $28,000. Church members sold their old jewelry to raise money; several non-members, people from the community, made surprisingly large donations, and they received memorial donations, Pelt said. Also, every third Sunday at the end of every service When the Saints Go Marching In would play and members marched toward the front of the church to make donations in a special offering box. On Saturday, with the brand new red Galvalume steel roof in place, church members met for an all-church cleanup day, getting ready for the churchs 40th anniversary homecoming day Sunday, Feb. 24. The public is invited. A special service begins at 11 a.m. As church members worked on the grounds and inside the church, the Rev. Tim Pauley, in his brown overalls, trimmed hedges. Its kind of a makeover for the church building, which shows the makeover of the peoples hearts, he said. It was done through the generosity of a lot of people of meager means who were willing to sacrificially give in order to see something greater come from it. Were all in this together, he said. Were all willing to work and to sacrifice. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com.

Associated PressORLANDO The criminal trial of former Republican Party of Florida chair Jim Greer had promised to be embarrassing for party leaders, rising Republican star Marco Rubio and former Gov. Charlie Crist, who is contemplating a new political future as a Democrat. But Greers guilty pleas on Monday to four counts of theft and a single count of money laundering ended the trial before it even started and ensured that some state GOP secrets will remain confidential, at least for the time being. There were a number of people who did not want this trial to go forward, and the trial isnt going forward, Damon Chase, Greers attorney, said after the former chair entered his pleas in court. Once again, Jim Greer is falling on his sword for a lot of other folks. Greer, 50, could face a prison sentence of 3 1/2 to 35 years when he is sentenced March 27. Assistant statewide prosecutor Michael Williams wouldnt say how many years prosecutors would seek. The trial had threatened to expose the underbelly of Floridas dominant political party and its formerly high-spending ways. Party officials took heat three years ago from revelations of excessive spending at restaurants and luxury hotels on partyissued American Express cards by Republican leaders, including Rubio. Testimony about those expenditures had been expected at the trial. Topics also covered in pretrial depositions included allegations of prostitutes at a state GOP fundraiser in the Bahamas, the drinking habits of Crist and intraparty strife. Some of Floridas most powerful politicians were scheduled as witnesses, including Crist, former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux, former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and several state House and state Senate leaders. Greers acknowledgment of guilt was what the party wanted all along, party attorney Stephen Dobson said, and they werent worried about potentially embarrassing testimony at trial. There was absolutely no concern. In fact, a lot of people were looking forward to clearing a lot of these allegations that had been made up, Dobson said outside the courtroom. Today the truth came out. Greer was vice mayor of the small central Florida town of Oviedo when Crist surprisingly picked him to be the state party chairman after he led local efforts to help Crist get elected governor in 2006. He previously was the president and CEO of a company that provides training to the hospitality industry on how to comply with alcohol laws. Former state GOP chief pleads guilty Greer corruption trial could have proved embarrassing for state leaders Corrections The date for the Berries, Brew and Barbecue event was incorrect on Page D3 of Sundays edition. The event, in conjunction with the Floral City Strawberry Festival, is Friday, March 1. In the Jan. 15 edition of the Chronicle statements attributed to Martyn Johnson regarding the water districts use of historical data information and the need for a restoration regime for the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa rivers were made by another person. The Chronicle regrets the errors. Readers can alert The Citrus County Chronicle to any errors in news articles by emailing newsdesk@ chronicleonline.com or by calling 352-563-5660.

sway over the choice of his successor. Though he will not himself vote, he has hand-picked the bulk of the College of Cardinals the princes of the church who will elect his successor to guarantee his conservative legacy and ensure an orthodox future for the church. The resignation may mean age will become less of a factor when electing a new pope, since candidates may no longer feel compelled to stay for life. For the century to come, I think that none of Benedicts successors will feel morally obliged to remain until their death, said Paris Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois. Benedict had said as recently as 2010 that a pontiff should resign if he got too old or infirm to do the job, but it was a tremendous surprise when he said in Latin that his strength of mind and body had diminished and that he couldnt carry on. He said he would resign effective 8 p.m. local time on Feb. 28. All the cardinals remained shocked and were looking at each other, said Monsignor Oscar Sanchez of Mexico, who was in the room at the time of the announcement. As a top aide, Benedict watched from up close as Pope John Paul II suffered publicly from the Parkinsons disease that enfeebled him in the final years of his papacy. Clearly Benedict wanted to avoid the same fate as his advancing age took its toll, though the Vatican insisted the announcement was not prompted by any specific malady. The Vatican said Benedict would live in a congregation for cloistered nuns inside the Vatican, although he will be free to go in and out. Much of this is unchartered territory. The Vaticans chief spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said he isnt even sure of Benedicts title perhaps pope emeritus. Since becoming pope in 2005, Benedict has charted a very conservative course for the church, trying to reawaken Christianity in Europe where it had fallen by the wayside and return the church to its traditional roots, which he felt had been betrayed by a botched interpretation of the modernizing reforms of the Second Vatican Council. His efforts though, were overshadowed by a worldwide clerical sex abuse scandal, communication gaffes that outraged Jews and Muslims alike and, more recently, a scandal over leaked documents by his own butler. Many of his stated priorities as pope also fell short: he failed to establish relations with China, heal the schism and reunite with the Orthodox Church, or reconcile with a group of breakaway, traditionalist Catholics. There are several papal contenders in the wings, but no obvious frontrunner the same situation as when Benedict was elected after the death of John Paul. As in recent elections, some push is expected for the election of a Third World pope, with several names emerging from Asia, Africa and Latin America, home to half the worlds Catholics. The Vatican stressed that no specific medical condition prompted Benedicts decision, saying he remains fully lucid and took his decision independently. Any interference or intervention is alien to his style, Lombardi said. The pope has clearly slowed down significantly in recent years, cutting back his foreign travel and limiting his audiences. He now goes to and from the altar in St. Peters Basilica on a moving platform to spare him the long walk down the aisle. Occasionally he uses a cane. As early as 2010, Benedict began to look worn out: He had lost weight and didnt seem fully engaged when visiting bishops briefed him on their dioceses. But as tired as he often seemed, he would also bounce back, enduring searing heat in Benin to caress a child and gamely hanging on when a freak storm forced him to cut short a speech during a youth festival in Madrid in 2011. His 89-year-old brother, Georg Ratzinger, said doctors recently advised the pope not to take any more trans-Atlantic trips. His age is weighing on him, Ratzinger told the dpa news agency in Germany. At this age, my brother wants more rest. Benedict emphasized that to carry out the duties of being pope, both strength of mind and body are necessary strengths which in the last few months, have deteriorated in me.

to $250. By harnessing free horsepower from a renewable energy source, Waldron said her bills are down to $60 or $70 a month. I started with the solar tube skylights in 2005, Waldron said. Then I had the solar attic fan and then I had the solar water heater and then I got the roof. They had to take the solar water heater off, put the roof on and reinstall the water heater. In addition to solar power installations, Waldron has improved her house with better energyefficient features such as a metal roof, ceramic floor tiles and new windows. Each year, Waldron completes another improvement project. She admitted it would have been better to have installed the roof before the water heater. Ive rebuilt the house, Waldron joked. There was a draft. So I had all new windows, and man, they made a difference. And the tile keeps your house cold. You dont like that in the winter, but I have a fireplace. Tile is great in the summertime. The metal roof deflects heat rather than absorbing it. Ive got the other shingle roof underneath it. Its a double layer, Waldron said. It totally keeps the house insulated and super dry. Waldron said she runs her air conditioning less in the summer because of the tiled floor, the insulated roof and the new windows. In addition, the solarpowered attic fan cuts the air conditioning need. It removes the heat from your attic, which makes your air conditioner work less, Waldron explained about the attic fan. You have so much lower electric bills. The five solar skylights in the house cost $600 total and are expected to last at least 15 years. Natural light beams down through the ceiling in rooms with small windows, such as bathrooms. It was a cave, Waldron said. These are lenses. I like them because you can see the sky. With the solar system for heating water, Waldron had an electric water heater that was relatively new, so had it adapted to solar use. She chose not to use a system with glycol as antifreeze, so she drains the water heater if the outside temperature gets down to freezing level. She said the solar water heater knocked her electricity bill down by a third. A large solar panel on Waldrons garage roof powers the water heater to heat water to at least 200 degrees. When I drain it, I can hang a shirt over it and get steam. So I can even steam a shirt, Waldron said. For her next installation, Waldron is planning for a solar tracking system in her backyard, but first she will have to move her fire pit since it is an area not shaded by trees. This system would cut her electricity bill to next to nothing. I want to get a rotator, Waldron said. Theyre called GPS trackers. Ill put 20 or 24 solar panels on it. Then it will track the sun and youll get 40 or 45 percent more power from the solar panels when you have a tracker. And its automatic. Its got like ballast in it. It doesnt work on power. When the sun goes down, it automatically goes back because the ballast cools. The solar panels are mounted on poles in the ground and move with a GPS tracking system that aligns the panels with the movement of the sun. The choice to power up with solar sources reflects Waldrons character. While she would not go off the grid completely, she wants to eliminate her electric bill except for the service charge. Ive always been independent and self-sufficient, she said. In addition, she admits to some amount of resentment of utility companies. I dont like paying them all that money, Waldron said. I will gladly not pay someone $200 a month. Waldron alluded to the 2006 law that allows a utility company to recover socalled advanced nuclear costs from its customers when explaining why the initial investment in solar power was worth the longterm benefits. Right now, I am paying forward, which I think is a very important point, she said. We are paying forward for nothing. But with this, you get immediate results. The new Westinghouse panels Im going to install, they have a 25-year warranty on them. And they pay you back. Its the only appliance that pays you back. The equipment and installation may not now be as prohibitively expensive as it once was. Solar has really gone down, Waldron said. People think $40,000 or $50,000, but you dont have to go that high. The panels have come down a lot. Her words are substantiated by a November 2012 report produced by the Department of Energys Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Solar photovoltaic power systems have been falling precipitously since 2008. As costs vary, a good way to start getting into solar power is to ask for estimates from solar contractors.

Dell looks to calm shareholder concernNEW YORK Dell is trying to reassure shareholders about its proposed $24.4 billion acquisition by a group led by its founder, saying it considered a number of strategic options before agreeing to the deal. Dell Inc. laid out the advantages of the transaction in a regulatory filing Monday, three days after a major shareholder ridiculed the buyout as a rotten deal that undervalues the business. On Friday, Southeastern Asset Management Inc. sent a letter to Dells board of directors. Southeastern CEO O. Mason Hawkins threatened to lead a shareholder mutiny unless Dell came up with an alternative acquisition offer. Hawkins vowed to wield Southeasterns 8.5 percent stake to thwart the deal currently on the table. Only Michael Dell, the computer companys founder and CEO, owns more stock with a roughly 14 percent stake. Round Rock, Texas-based Dell said in its filing that it determined with independent advisers that the cash bid by a group led by Michael Dell was in the best interests of stockholders. HCA says KKR and Bain will sell 50M sharesNASHVILLE, Tenn. Hospital operator HCA Holdings Inc. said Monday a group of investors plan to sell up to 50 million shares of its stock. HCA said most of the shares will be sold by the private equity funds Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and Bain Capital Partners. HCA wont get any proceeds from the sale, which is expected to close Friday. As of December, Bain and KKR each owned 74.2 million shares of HCA. That gave them 16.8 percent stakes in the company, according to FactSet. Bain and KKR were among the firms that took HCA private in 2006. They were joined by Merrill Lynch and the Frist family, which cofounded the company. HCA went public again in March 2011 with an initial public offering valued at $3.79 billion, which made for the largest private equity-backed IPO in history.Report: AMR, US Airways boards to meet this weekDALLAS Directors of American Airlines and US Airways reportedly plan to meet Wednesday to consider a merger. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday negotiators were still considering the makeup of the combined companys board and an exact role for the CEO of American parent AMR Corp. US Airways declined to comment and AMR did not return messages. The companies are trying to finish a deal before Friday, when a confidentiality agreement covering some AMR bondholders expires. That could result in public disclosure about negotiation details. If the two carriers were to strike a deal, it would create the worlds biggest airline by passenger traffic, although United Continental Holdings Inc. would still be bigger if regional affiliates are counted.Study: 1 in 4 consumers had error in credit reportWASHINGTON One in four consumers found an error in a credit report issued by a major agency, according to a government study released Monday. The Federal Trade Commission study also said that 5 percent of the consumers identified errors in their reports that could lead to them paying more for mortgages, auto loans or other financial products. The study looked at reports for 1,001 consumers issued by the three major agencies Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. The FTC hired researchers to help consumers identify potential errors. The study closely matches the results of a yearlong investigation by The Columbus Dispatch. The Ohio newspapers report last year said that thousands of consumers were denied loans because of errors on their credit reports. The FTC says the findings underline the importance of consumers checking their credit reports. Consumers are entitled to a free copy of their credit report each year from each of the three reporting agencies. The FTC study also found that 20 percent of consumers had an error that was corrected by a reporting agency after the consumer disputed it. About 10 percent of consumers had their credit score changed after a reporting agency corrected errors in their reports. The Consumer Data Industry Association, which represents the credit reporting agencies and other data companies, said the FTC study showed that the proportion of credit reports with errors that could increase the rates consumers would pay was small. The study confirmed that credit reports are highly accurate, and play a critical role in facilitating access to fair and affordable consumer credit, the association said in a statement. Experian, a British company with international operations, also said in a statement the study confirms that consumer credit reports are predominantly accurate. At the same time Experian said it is not satisfied with this result and we continue to work toward ensuring credit reports are 100 percent accurate. The new U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has the authority to write and enforce rules for the credit reporting industry. In September the agency began ongoing monitoring of the credit agencies compliance. Its the first time they have faced such close federal oversight. The CFPB hasnt yet taken any public action against the agencies.

With little in the way of market-moving news Monday, the S&P 500 slipped 0.92 of a point to close at 1,517.01. Seven of the 10 industry groups within the S&P 500 dropped. Now, with major indexes near record highs, many think the stock markets six-week rally is ready for a pause. The consensus seems to be that were due for a correction, said Brian Gendreau, market strategist at Cetera Financial Group. If you compound the increase weve had so far, this year would be the best year ever for stocks. And nobody thinks that thats going to happen. The best year ever for stocks? For the S&P 500 index it was 1933, when the index rebounded 46 percent in the middle of the Great Depression. In other trading Monday, the Dow Jones industrial average dropped 21.73 points to 13,971.24. UnitedHealth Group led the Dow lower, losing 62 cents to $57.12. The Nasdaq composite fell 1.87 points to 3,192.00. Trading volume was light, with 2.6 billion shares trading on the New York Stock Exchange. That compares with a twomonth moving average of 3.4 billion. Solid earnings reports have helped feed the rally in recent weeks. Of the 342 companies in the S&P index that reported results through last week, two out of every three have beat Wall Streets earnings estimates, according to research from Goldman Sachs. Gendreau pointed to three reasons he believes that stocks still have room to run. Even after the markets recent surge, the typical stock looks fairly priced when compared to underlying earnings. Corporations keep finding ways to boost profits, which helps lure stock prices higher. And Americans looking for places to put their savings have few attractive alternatives. Ill go out on a limb and say that I think earnings growth, attractive valuations and pent-up demand will add up to a fairly strong year for equities, Gendreau said. Apples stock gained following reports over the weekend that the tech giant is developing a wristwatch-like gadget, a smart watch. The device would reportedly run the same operating system used for iPhones and iPads. Apple rose $4.95 to $479.93. The stock market raced to a stunning start this year. A last-minute deal in Washington to avoid tax hikes and spending cuts known as the fiscal cliff eased fears that the budget cuts could lead the U.S. into a recession. Markets soared in relief.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2013 Keep safety in mind This letter is in reference to your editorial printed on Feb. 4 regarding our school board and tough fiscal choices. In particular I would like to address the paragraph where you say: The school board has rejected cutting programs like the Marine Science Station in the past and we would encourage them to do so in the future. We would much rather have students walking a mile or two to school than be told you cannot be a marine biologist. I believe that children walking to and from school for two miles in the dark presents a clear and present danger and is an unacceptable risk to the school children of Citrus County. For the public record, please tell us how many students have attended the Marine Science program and exactly how many of those students have be come graduate marine biologists? It would be sad if the school board chose fish camp over students safety.Donald H. Schultz Homosassa Thanks for support Donna Danback and family would like to thank all the businesses and individuals who helped make the benefit for Donna Danback at Cities Bar on Jan. 11, a huge success. Thank you to Citrus 95 and the Citrus County Chroniclefor advertising this event. Thank you to all who donated items for auction and food, and to all the businesses that showed their support by hanging flyers! Thank you to Will Wilson at Citrus Sports for donating our Support Donna Tshirts. We would like to thank Cities Bar for hosting the event, and a special thanks to all of you who opened your hearts and dedicated your time and effort to make this benefit possible. Thank you to all who came out that night to show support for Donna in her fight with cancer. Our community is filled with great people and we are proud to call Citrus County our home! Donna Danback and family L ast year the Florida Legislature passed a bill that allowed returning outright prayer to public schools. Not a moment of silence, not the gathering around the flagpole on the National Day of Prayer, but the bona fide right of students to lead other students in prayer at any student assembly, even mandatory ones. School officials are prohibited from interfering or even judging whether the prayer in question is appropriate. Theoretically, a prayer could invoke the Holy Trinity in every line, making it explicitly Christian. It could also invoke Wiccan paganism, though given Floridas more Christian-theocratic mania these days, we know very well what sort of hosannas would tend to prevail. One caveat: the law does require local school boards to pass resolutions enacting the allowance before students can take advantage of it. Its a constitutionally problematic law in many regards. Beside the outright violation of the First Amendment public schools, as government entities, would be endorsing religion whether a prayer is student-led or not, since students are acting under authority of their school prayer of any sort at student assemblies would be a coercive end-run around at least some students right to be left alone. Its an even bigger problem if school boards must enact a resolution to enable student prayer, because it certifies prayer is made possible at the will of the board. Not surprisingly, not a single one of Floridas 67 school boards enacted such a resolution. Theyve followed the state School Board Associations advice: Leave well enough alone. Its not worth the legal muck that could be triggered by one extremist invocation too many. That enlightened streak may be about to end. For the last two straight meetings of the Flagler County School Board, one of its members, John Fischer, has implored his colleagues to seize on the state law and return prayer to schools. Both times he laced his impassioned proposal in a doublebladed call to unity while attacking political correctness and special interests for keeping prayer out of schools. You know, theres just hate, Fischer said, without providing a single example of the hate he spoke of, even though he said he had seen it in the school boards own meeting chambers. Why cant we get along? Dont be afraid of the political correctness. Dont be afraid of all the activist groups. Dont be afraid of all these peoples hate, and spread hate. Wheres our rights? It was a strange question, coming from an even stranger perspective. Even as the school board member was calling for all to get along, he was doing so by creating an us-versus-them divide he did not define beyond those who pray to a Christian god and those who dont. The criticism of special interests and political correctness is also ironic, considering what that correctness has enabled in public schools, including racial integration, equality for girls in school athletics, equality for students with special needs, respect for students of all creeds and lifestyles whether atheist, Catholic, gay, Wiccan or undefined. One of the great and enduring successes of the American public school, all academic hand-wringing aside, is its admirable reflection of principles of equal opportunity, fairness and respect for all. Few other institutions, including private and charter schools, can make that claim. Schools balancing of public and private religious rights is among those successes. Why jeopardize it? Even before last years resurrection of school prayer, Florida wasnt quite the atheistgodless-communist redoubt its mullahs would make you believe it was. Public schools could and still may provide up to two minutes of silence at the beginning of every day for prayer or meditation. (Schools are loath to do that only because their hours have been slashed as it is, to save money, so further reducing instructional time wouldnt be wise.) Students can pray at any time of their choosing, anywhere they please, even in groups, as long as it doesnt interfere with school activities. Florida law also requires the Department of Education to distribute explicit guidelines on Religious Expression in Public Schools to every school board member, superintendent, principal and teacher in every school, making students rights to pray very clear. Then came last years curveball of a prayer law. School boards have sensibly held their bats. Let us pray they continue to do so, Flagler Countys veiled nostalgia for a more unequal past notwithstanding.

Thomas Huxley expressed it well: Do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not. That may be the feeling among residents around the Blue Waters area of Homosassa, after a recent public meeting at which county water resource officer Ken Cheek discussed a planned sewer line extension. The project, Phase V of the countys overall water quality project, is intended to get septic tanks away from the Homosassa River. More than half the residents at the meeting indicated they favored the project. Is it the right thing to do? Absolutely. Cheek cited the University of South Florida study of neighboring Chassahowitzka septic tanks that showed dye put into residential toilets coming out in the main springs just three days later. The Homosassa River and the Chassahowitzka are Outstanding Florida Waters. More than that, the Homosassa is among Floridas 41 water bodies carrying the designation of Special Waters. These are, according to the state, waters of exceptional recreational or ecological significance, providing environmental, social and economic benefits (that) outweigh environmental, social and economic costs of preservation. Some who have lived for years with septic tanks dont see a pressing need for change, but now definitely is the time to do it, for ecology as well as for economy. The Homosassa Rivers springs areas adjacent to the properties within the Phase V footprint already are impaired from increased nutrient levels. It is the right time financially, too. Grant monies available now to help lower land owners costs will disappear if the project isnt started within a few months. Cheek is continuing to search for additional funding, including from the Southwest Florida Water Management District. His recent presentation to its grants committee, in which he pitched the sewer project as a solution for a critical water quality issue, was received well. The application will be included in the FY 2014 project ranking list, a good first step in the process. Hes also looking for other sources. Construction will be a hassle and there will be expenses (with option to pay over 10 years), but this sewer project is the right thing to do, and now is the right time to do it. THE ISSUE: Phase V water quality program for sewers in Homosassa. OUR OPINION: Its the right thing to do.

Protect water as resource U.S. Gypsum applied for a water permit from SWFWMD recently. They want almost a half-amillion gallons per day from a Crystal River well for commercial and industrial purposes. U.S. Gypsums permit doesnt say what they want the water for or what they are doing with it. Are they going to add dangerous chemicals to it? How much will be returned to the sewage system? Will U.S. Gypsum pay sewage fees? What are the dangers associated with this industrial process with chemicals that will find its way into the aquifer? How will U.S. Gypsum impact the ecology of the Nature Coast? How much water will be withdrawn from their region before SWFWMD says no to more permits? Will they ever say no? Will overpumping continue until our freshwater turns to saltwater? The aquifer level has been steadily trending downward and the salt content is trending upward. Do we just go along blissful in our ignorance until the policies of SWFWMD destroy our water with salt water intrusion like Cedar Key or other southern Florida areas? Why arent water meters required for industrial users? Every gallon of water represents profit to this company, and is there nothing to make them quit pumping when their allotted amount is reached? How would anyone even know when that point occurs? Our water is not a commodity to be wasted. With SWFWMDs current policy of over allocating permits, everyones right to good drinking water is being sacrificed. We need to protect our water and not waste it. Policy needs to change! Where do you think Cedar Key gets its water now? SWFWMD needs to reject these large water consumptive permits and start requiring water meters. Commercial users need to pay dearly for water. What happens if our water goes salty? It can happen very quickly like Cedar Key. What do you think our property would be worth then? We are seriously endangered with salt water intrusion that is happening now. Overpumping fresh water reduces the pressure we need to keep out the salt water surrounding Florida. Ever try to live without water? You cant!Roger Dobronyi Inverness Failure of leadership In a letter to the editor on Feb. 4, 2013, Serve constituents not own interests by Roger B. Krieger, he criticizes Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugent for voting against H.R. 152. He called it Sandy Storm aid. Sen. Nelson did vote for the bill. H.R. 152 titled, Disaster Relief Appropriations Act 2013, is supposed to be for emergency repairs caused by Hurricane Sandy. This relief act with an amendment added, will cost the taxpayers $60.2 billion. Almost half of this money goes for earmarks that were added to the bill for non Sandy related items. It is all deficit spending and will be added to our national debt. Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugent voted against this bill because of these added earmarks which are not covered by spending cuts in other areas. Prior to this bill, they both voter for a proposed bill that didnt contain any earmarks or amendments but it was defeated. I applaud both Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugent for trying to control our tax dollars and the national debt. Sen. Nelson, who like many in our government, seems to think we have an unlimited supply of money. We dont and we need to cut spending and reduce our national debt. Back on March 16, 2006, then Sen. Obama made a speech to Congress concerning a request to raise the national debt ceiling. He said, and I quote in part, The fact that we are here today to debate raising Americas debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our governments reckless fiscal policies. Increasing Americas debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. When he made this speech our national debt was approximately $8.4 trillion, today seven years later our national debt is about to pass $16.4 trillion and rising. President Obama, in four years, is responsible for $6 trillion of this debt. When is this going to end? He says he is not responsible for this increase. He says we are obligated to pay our bills that were created in Congress. He seems to forget that the bills passed by Congress dont become laws until signed by the president. He has signed these bills into law, thus he is responsible for this $6 trillion increase to our national debt. As far as Mr. Kriegers statement that Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugent have sworn oaths to a millionaire and a fringe political group, which they clearly prize over the oath to our constitution. Mr. Krieger, you need to check out the list of major donors to the Democratic Party. Its very interesting. Then also check to see if any of these people and groups have benefited from stimulus money or other government funds that have added to our national debt. While you are doing all this checking, also check who has been ignoring our Constitution for the last four yours. I agree with what Sen. Obama said in 2006. Today we have a failure of leadership and Americans deserve better.Bob Balogh Homosassa This is not recovery I keep hearing over and over on the news media and from the politicians that the recession caused by the forced building boom and the collapse of those that caused the problem (the major banks and Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac) is over and we have recovery again. True, those that caused the problem of the building bubble have recovered and are doing well thanks to the handout by the federal government. However, it seems to me at that time, fall of 2008, we already had close to 20 million unemployed, factories were moving out of the country or forcing the labor force in the private sector to take reduced wages and less in benefits such as retirements, health care and working conditions. Those that brought about free trade or favored nation status have done quite well; while our national debt has skyrocketed and foreign nations are holding trillions of American dollars used to buy our treasury bills, our factories, our land, our communities and even our roads. Why, look at how finance elections and they who controls our government. At the same time there are still 16 to 18 million either unemployed or underemployed as the middle class Americans worked, their share of the national wealth and income continually fall. This is not recovery, but response for the American people by the very wealthy through the federal and state governments (like whats happening here in Florida).

Medal Associated Press Retired Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha receives the Medal of Honor Monday in the East Room of the White House in Washington. Romeshas leadership during a daylong attack by hundreds of fighters on Combat Outpost Keating in Afghanistan led to the award. Ex-cop charged with murderRIVERSIDE, Calif. A fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer was charged Monday with murdering a Riverside officer in a potential death penalty case, but hundreds of tips triggered by a $1 million reward failed to end the manhunt. Christopher Dorner was also charged with the attempted murder of another Riverside officer and two Los Angeles Police Department officers, Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach said. The LAPD officers and the Riverside officers were fired on in two separate shootings early Thursday after Dorner, 33, became the target of a manhunt following the killing in Irvine of a former LAPD captains daughter and her fiance the previous weekend. Two charged in student shooting CHICAGO Two men were charged with murder Monday in the death of a 15-year-old Chicago honor student who was shot just days after returning from Washington, where she performed during President Barack Obamas inauguration festivities. The two young men, ages 18 and 20, were described by police as persons of interest when they were taken into custody early Sunday, a day after first lady Michelle Obama and other dignitaries attended the funeral of Hadiya Pendleton. Chicago police spokeswoman Melissa Stratton said late Monday that both young men are now charged with one count of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm. Their names havent been released. Pendleton, a popular high school majorette, was with a group of friends who took cover during a rainstorm under a canopy in a park about a mile from the Obama home on the citys South Side. Police said a man hopped a fence, ran toward them and opened fire with a handgun. Pendleton was struck in the back and died later that day. Two others were injured.

France said Romanian butchers and Dutch and Cypriot traders were part of a supply chain that resulted in horsemeat being labeled as beef before it was included in frozen dinners including lasagna, moussaka and the French equivalent of Shepherds Pie.Taliban warns about ViagraPESHAWAR, Pakistan The head of a trade association for a large market in northwestern Pakistan said the Taliban have warned shopkeepers not to sell sex-related drugs like Viagra, or obscene films.

The Pentagon for the first time is considering scaling back the massive buildup of drones it has overseen in the past few years, both to save money and to adapt to changing security threats and an increased focus on Asia as the Afghanistan war winds down. Air Force leaders are saying the military may already have enough unmanned aircraft systems to wage the wars of the future. And the Pentagons shift to Asia will require a new mix of drones and other aircraft because countries in that region are better able to detect unmanned versions and shoot them down. If the Pentagon does slow the huge building and deployment program, which was ordered several years ago by then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates, it wont affect the CIA drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere against terror suspects. Those strikes were brought center stage last week during the confirmation hearing for White House counterterror chief John Brennan, President Barack Obamas pick to lead the CIA. Gen. Mike Hostage, commander of Air Combat Command, said senior leaders are analyzing the militarys drone needs and discussions are beginning. But he said the current number patrolling the skies overseas may already be more than the service can afford to maintain. Overall, Pentagon spending on unmanned aircraft has jumped from $284 million in 2000 to nearly $4 billion in the past fiscal year, while the number of drones owned by the Pentagon has rocketed from less than 200 in 2002 to at least 7,500 now. The bulk of those drones are small, shoulder-launched Ravens owned by the Army. The discussions may trigger heated debate because drones have become so important to the military. They can provide 24hour patrols over hotspots, gather intelligence by pulling in millions of terabytes of data and hours of video feeds, and they can also launch precisely targeted airstrikes without putting a U.S. pilot at risk. Military weighs drone cuts Strategic focus shifts to areas where UAVs are more vulnerable Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. The workweek opened with a whiteknuckle ride Monday in the snowclobbered Northeast as drivers encountered unplowed streets, two-lane roads reduced to a single channel and snowbanks so high it was impossible see around corners. Schools remained closed across much of New England and New York, and more than 80,000 homes and businesses were still waiting for the electricity to come back on after the epic storm swept through on Friday and Saturday with 1 to 3 feet of snow that entombed cars and sealed up driveways. The storm was blamed for at least 18 deaths in the U.S. and Canada, and officials warned of a new danger as rain and higher temperatures set in: roof collapses. In hard-hit Connecticut, where some places were buried in more than 3 feet of snow, the National Guard used heavy equipment to clear roads in the states three biggest cities. This is awful, said Fernando Colon, of South Windsor, Conn., who was driving to work at Bradley International Airport near Hartford on a two-lane highway that was down to one lane because of high snowbanks. Most major highways were cleared by Monday, but the volume of snow was just too much to handle on many secondary roads. A mix of sleet and rain also created new headaches. A 10-mile stretch of Interstate 91 just north of Hartford to Massachusetts was closed briefly because of ice and accidents. In New York, where hundreds of cars became stuck on the Long Island Expressway on Friday night and early Saturday morning, some motorists vented their anger at Gov. Andrew Cuomo for not acting more quickly to shut down major roads, as other governors did, and for not plowing more aggressively. There were cars scattered all over the place. They should have just told people in the morning, Dont bother going in because were going to close the roads by 3 oclock. I think Boston and Connecticut had the right idea telling everybody to stay off the roads and we got a better chance of clearing it up, said George Kiriakos, an investment consultant from Bohemia, N.Y. On Monday morning, he said, conditions were still miserable: Its just as slick as can be. Youve got cars stuck all over like its an obstacle course. Cuomo has defended his handling of the crisis and said that more than one-third of all the states snow-removal equipment had been sent to the area. He said he also wanted to allow people the chance to get home from work. People need to act responsibly in these situations, the governor said. The number of homes and businesses without power was down from a peak at 650,000. More than 70,000 of those still waiting were in Massachusetts. Battling the snow Associated Press Matt Church enjoys his breakfast Monday at a coffee shop in downtown Haverhill, Mass. Beleaguered Massachusetts residents returned to work on Monday for the first time since the weekend blizzard, crawling along narrow snow-covered secondary roads and being greeted by a new wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain. After storm, Northeast commuters head out to face elements Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian rebels scored one of their biggest strategic victories Monday since the countrys crisis began two years ago, capturing the nations largest dam and iconic industrial symbol of the Assad familys four-decade rule. Rebels led by the alQaida-linked militant group Jabhat al-Nusra now control much of the water flow in the countrys north and east, eliciting warnings from experts that any mistake in managing the dam may drown wide areas in Syria and Iraq. A Syrian government official denied that the rebels captured the dam, saying heavy clashes are taking place around it. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. But amateur video released by activists showed gunmen walking around the facilitys operations rooms and employees apparently carrying on with their work as usual. In the capital, Damascus, the rebels kept the battle going mostly in northeastern and southern neighborhoods as the fighting gets closer to the heart of President Bashar Assads seat of power. The capture of the alFurat dam came after rebels seized two smaller dams on the Euphrates river, which flows from Turkey through Syria and into Iraq. Behind al-Furat dam lies Lake Assad, which at 247 square miles is the countrys largest water reservoir. The dam produces 880 megawatts of electricity, a small amount of the countrys production. Still, the capture handed the rebels control over water and electricity supplies for both government-held areas and large swaths of land the opposition has captured over the past 22 months of fighting. This is the most important dam in Syria. It is a strategic dam, and Lake Assad is one of the largest artificial lakes in the region, said Rami AbdulRahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Associated PressGAINESVILLE No. 7 Florida has mostly dominated the Southeastern Conference this season, winning nine of 10 games by double figures and most of those by lopsided margins. All that success would mean little if the Gators dont beat No. 25 Kentucky tonight. Florida has dropped five in a row, including all three meetings last season, against the Wildcats. So all that talk about being the class of the conference in 2013 would be moot if the Gators dont reverse the trend against the defending national champions. Its always going to be in the back of our minds that they beat us three times last year, but its a new year and we have things that were focused on this year and thats winning an SEC championship, Florida guard Scottie Wilbekin said Monday. And in order to do that, we need to beat them, so its an important game. The Gators (19-3, 9-1 SEC) have won 11 of their past 12 games and are 11-0 at home this season. They handled Wisconsin, routed Missouri and cruised by Mississippi the toughest games to date in the OConnell Center.

The Hoosiers (21-3) lost to Illinois on a last-second basket Thursday but rebounded with a win at Ohio State on Sunday. In a week when four of the top five teams and six of the top 10 lost, it was enough to keep the No. 1 ranking. It ends a stretch of five consecutive weeks with a new No. 1, two weeks short of the longest such stretch in 1993-94. Duke started the run followed by Louisville, Duke again, Michigan and Indiana.

IOC to drop a sport; modern pentathlon on hot seat LONDON Removing a sport from the Olympics is one of the IOCs most sensitive tasks. After months of evaluation, a decision will come next week and the century-old competition of modern pentathlon appears the most at risk. The IOC executive board will meet in Lausanne, Switzerland, and announce Tuesday which of the current 26 sports on the Olympic program will be dropped for the 2020 Games. The IOC will decide later this year which sport to bring in as a replacement. The last sports axed from the Olympics were baseball and softball, off the program since the 2008 Beijing Games.

Dick Thornburgh that was commissioned by the Paterno family.From wire reports Associated Press A palm tree is reflected on the sunglasses of St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny on Monday before the start of spring training baseball in Jupiter. Brand new ballgame for county squads Citrus teams rebuilding after losing many of last years starters S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentThere are more questions than answers for this years crop of prep baseball teams. A 2012 class has departed that featured four former Chronicle Players of the Year, as well as the cores of three talented teams, among them a Citrus group that advanced to the 6A regional final game. The Hurricanes are looking to replace at least seven starters this season while returning just six of last years 200 innings of pitching experience. Third-year Citrus coach Brady Bogart expects juniors Chad Dawson and Ben Wright, both former JV standouts, to help bolster this years inexperienced club, while the offense will rely on the more experienced bats of sophomore Brooks Brasher, junior Cody Bogart and senior Kyle Tobin, all key contributors for last years Elite 8 team. He says his Canes may play as many as seven sophomores and a freshman in games, and are putting players in up to three positions a night to find the best fits. We feel pretty comfortable with Dawson and Wright, and we think our sophomores can step up and throw strikes on the mound and make contact at the plate, Bogart said. Brasher and Bogart all bring back a lot of quality at-bats, and were looking to Tobin to be one of our sparks in the top of the order. The rest of our guys have come from the JV program, which has been successful. The last four years were good to see for our county. We told our sophomores that they can be that next special group if they do the work every day. Were preparing ourselves to play two good games at the end of April, not matter what our record is, Bogart said of the teams goals for the district, which includes Lecanto, Springstead, Central and West Port. Crystal River is replacing six senior starters from a season ago, including most of its pitching staff outside of sophomore Jordan Humphreys. Despite the uncertainties and inexperience, fifth-year head coach Bobby Stack is enjoying working with the new faces. Its a building year, but its fun, Stack said. The kids are real attentive; they pay attention and make adjustments. I got excited about this team from the preseason tournament. Pitching is an obvious concern for Stack, whose Pirates defeated Springstead and Lecanto in a pair of preseason contests. Ever since mid-January, its been a big stress for me, he said. Ive been spending a lot of time in the bullpen with them, trying to get them more consistent at hitting spots, but we Canes breeze by Bears Spring is here Pitchers and catchers report to spring training Associated PressNew Marlins manager Mike Redmond arrived at his office at 5 a.m. Monday ready to go long before the Florida sun was shining, his thoughts already on a date 254 days from now: Game 1 of the World Series. Ah, spring training. When all 30 teams are still contenders. Everybodys excited, Redmond said in Jupiter. Obviously, weve got a tremendous opportunity for guys in this camp and I think everybody realizes that. Its a fresh start. From a chilly and damp Phoenix, Ariz., to balmy Kissimmee, Fla., pitchers and catchers for 10 teams reported to training camp Monday, taking physicals, meeting new teammates and, in some cases, managers and coaches. The pop of fastballs in mitts, they could be heard, too. Many eager players have been working out informally for weeks on minor league fields position players dont report for several more days, and all teams will be in full swing by the weekend. In Tampa, Fla., Yankees captain Derek Jeter ran on a treadmill for the first time since breaking his ankle on Oct. 13, a big step toward reaching his goal of being in New Yorks opening day lineup on April 1 against Boston in the Bronx. In his third week of baseball activities, Jeter was on the infield grass fielding groundballs and in a batting cage taking swings all while dozens of autograph-seeking fans lined up outside the Yankees minor league complex down the road from the big league facility. I feel fine, Jeter said. I was able to do everything else. I just had to be careful with my ankle, but now Ive gotten the green light with that. Ive gotten all the green lights I need. In Fort Myers, Fla., Red Sox principal owner John Henry put to rest reports that he was considering selling the franchise. You just dont get an opportunity to own something like the Boston Red Sox. As long as we can do it, the three of us are committed to being here, Henry told reporters, while acknowledging team president Larry Lucchino and chairman Tom Werner. These thoughts that were somehow selling, those are just not true. With a new manager, John Farrell, replacing Bobby Valentine after one disastrous 69-93 season, Henry likes Bostons chances. I would say, especially in comparison to last year, I should be optimistic, Henry said. In Kissimmee, the Houston Astros began their first day in the bruising AL West. One of the most inexperienced teams in baseball will wear fiery orange practice hats and jerseys that evoke the orange rainbow stripes of a better time for an organization that lost more than 100 games each of the past two seasons.

The Citrus High School boys tennis team took on visiting Central High School on Monday in a lopsided non-district match that saw the Canes run away with a 6-1 rout. -1 at our place, you cant argue with that, Citrus coach James Martone said. We wanted the kids to come out and take care of business, and they did. Citrus was powered by big wins from Kyle Everett, Grey Pospich and Brady Hayes, who all took home 8-0 pro-set victories.

Oak Hall gave no quarter to the Pirates in its 7-0 shutout win. Were a young team, Crystal River head coach Bill Reyes said of the loss. Were only returning three players. Weve got a lot of room to grow. With nine total team members, the Pirates have six newcomers, all underclassmen, in the ranks. This (match) is one of 10, and weve set the bar (a little) low, but we can only go up from here, Reyes continued.

Associated Press Torontos Korbinian Holzer, right, and Philadelphias Mike Knuble battle for the puck Monday in Toronto. None of those victories had the same impact that beating Kentucky (17-6, 8-2) would have for Florida, which hasnt beaten the Wildcats in more than two years. Thats the past, Gators guard Kenny Boynton said. We lost five straight. Its time for us to start a new trend. Hopefully we go from here, win tomorrow, and we make it five straight. We just have to come out and play. Kentucky struggled earlier in the season, losing home games to Baylor and Texas A&M while coach John Caliparis four talented freshmen found their footing. The Wildcats have been much better recently, winning five in a row and seven of eight. UK is the only team in the country to score 70 or more points in eight of its past nine games. Still, Calipari is wary of facing Florida. Youve got a top 5 team on the road, they play well in their building, itll be a hard game for us to win, Calipari said. Lets put it this way: Last year, they were an Elite Eight team that shouldve been in the Final Four, one game short of that, and theyve got everybody back. And college basketball isnt what it was a year ago, so thats how good a challenge, how big a challenge and how good a team they are. And the Wildcats arent giving Florida much credit for winning SEC games by an average of 22.6 points. I couldnt care less about who they beat by 30 and 20 points, because were not the team that they beat by 30 and 20, guard Archie Goodwin said. Were another different team and if we let something like that intimidate us, then we wont be that confident in ourselves and be able to do the things we do. Kentucky should have an advantage in the paint, with 6-foot10 shot-blocker Nerlens Noel and 6-foot-7 forward Alex Poythress in the starting lineup and 7-foot Willie Cauley-Stein and 6-10 forward Kyle Wiltjer coming off the bench. The Gators, meanwhile, lost their best frontcourt defender last week when Will Yeguete had arthroscopic knee surgery. His absence left coach Billy Donovan using a four-guard lineup and counting on starting big men Pat Young and Erik Murphy to stay out of foul trouble. I think its something were gonna have to deal with, Donovan said. Theyve got really, really good length across the front line. Theyve got a lot of different lineups they can play. Getting Willie Cauley-Stein, then you add Wiltjer and Poythress and Noel, theres a lot of length up there. Our hand is what it is in terms of our frontcourt. We collectively have gotta do a good job as a group. Ive always been a big believer that its not one guys responsibility to take care of another guy, but weve got to do it as a team. We will need to continue to do a good job there as a team. Despite the disparity in the front court, both teams expect guard play to be the key. Florida has been at its best when Wilbekin and Boynton share the basketball and create open looks for their fellow 3point shooters. Kentucky, meanwhile, has been vulnerable when turning the ball over. We all know that and our guards know that, Calipari said. This is the challenge. You cant make excuses, you cant cop out, here it is and lets show what we are. Our teams getting better, our guards are getting better, our bigs are getting better, were getting better as a team, being more efficient.

S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE club and all the hires he has made, firstyear manager Bo Porter said. This year (the uniform change) kind of sets the tone because they visually see things have changed. And when you realize that things have changed, you first realize that theyre never going to be the same. Also hoping for a clean start, Bartolo Colon is back with the Oakland Athletics after serving a 50-game suspension for a positive testosterone test. He had little to say crossing a damp practice field in Phoenix after a 90-minute exam, but hes excited to be with a team that won the AL West in thrilling fashion last year, rallying over the final 10 games to grab the title from the Texas Rangers. Manager Bob Melvin isnt worried about Colon getting right back in the flow with his teammates. He fit in very well here before, and I see that being the same case, Melvin said. He knows most of these guys and they all liked him very much and got along with them all and actually was a nice little resource for our younger starters. So, I dont see any problems there. As his teammates reported to Cardinals camp in Jupiter, Fla., Chris Carpenter told media in St. Louis he hes not ruling out pitching again even this season. Last week, the Cardinals said the 37year-old former ace almost certainly wont pitch in 2013 and that his career is probably over after a recurrence of a nerve injury that cost him most of last season. Maybe I dont ever want it to end, said Carpenter, the 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner. I dont think Ill ever retire, to be honest with you. Ill never say that word. There might always be hope. Maybe like when Im 48 I can come back and pitch some more. In Scottsdale, Ariz., Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson greeted his team with a new determination one that could be mimicked all around the league. Im just determined, he said. I can just say that 81-81 (last season) does not sound good to me at all, and then I took it very personally, and I take responsibility for it. Added Gibson: In 2011, we overachieved. In 2012, we underachieved. We want to overachieve again. That is my expectation for this team. Little by little we may take some lumps this year, but its a young team with a bright future in the long run. Were building a program and, as my father would say, Rome wasnt built in a day, he said. Crystal Rivers No. 1 seed Matt Allen lost in two straight sets to Oak Hills Logan Blazer 6-0, 6-1. Allen took over the top spot from graduating Pirate Brandon Papp, who was a finalist for All-Chronicle Player of the Year. The Pirate team also suffered the loss of last years No. 2 seed, senior Travis Swanson, to a shoulder injury accrued during the soccer season. Swanson is not expected to recover in time to participate this season. Ryan Johnson fared similarly to Allen in the No. 2 singles match against Aman Kabeer, who took home the match 6-1, 6-0 for the Eagles. The No. 3 singles match went in favor of Oak Halls Nick Springer over Crystal Rivers Matt White in a straight 6-0, 6-0 shutout. The Nos.4 and 5 matches went to the Eagles Brandon Cooke (shutting out Crystal Rivers Devin Reed 6-0, 6-0) and Nash Dean (over Eddie Castelli 6-4, 6-3, who put up the best fight for the Pirates). The doubles matches were played as pro sets, and the visiting Eagles took both of them in decisive measures as well. Oak Hills Blazer and Kabeer blanked Crystal Rivers Allen and White 8-0 in the No. 1 doubles match, while Springer and Marcus Milani nearly shut out Crystal Rivers Johnson and Reed 8-1 in the Eagles No. 2 doubles match. to find some good chemistry. They found it with No. 4 Noah McGuiness, who took home an 8-3 win, sealing the deal for the Canes. In doubles, Citrus again found itself walking around with the broom, as No. 1 Everett and Pospich and No. 2 Hayes and McGuiness, walked away with 8-0 wins. Centrals lone win came in the No. 5 seed, in which Justin Battle defeated Citrus Nathan Meeks 8-3. Happy with the win, Martone hopes the momentum will carry on to bigger matches in the coming weeks, including Citrus next district matchup, against rival Lecanto. We knew coming into this one that Central was going to be a little bit down, he said. But well take it from here. We learned from our mistakes last Friday, and our seniors are starting to step up now, so hopefully well just carry on. understand were not dominant. Were looking for kids to compete and have a will to win. Sophomore pitcher Derrick Rogers really stepped it up against Springstead in the preseason tournament, and junior Kameron Pennington had a great outing against Lecanto. Junior pitcher Miller Henderson has really stepped up as well, and weve been trying to identify two more guys for the varsity pitching staff. Senior second baseman Michael Kidd and catcher Mason Pateracki are the most experienced returning varsity players, and are joined by a host of freshmen and former JV standouts, including junior pitcher and infielder Casey Purnell, freshman shortstop Zach Pattison and freshman right fielder Shaun Frasier. With perennial 5A-7 powers Hernando and Eustis and reigning champ Tavares looming, Stack expects another tough run in the district. Ours is one of the toughest 5A districts in the state, with those teams, he said. While Lecanto didnt lose as many players as the countys other programs, the loss of left-handed ace Sheldon Baxter, a 2011 Chronicle Player of the Year, is enough to knock any team off its footing. The Panthers also lost their starting catcher, shortstop and center fielder. Its hard when you lose pretty much everybody up the middle, which is what you build your team around, third-year Panthers coach Dave Logue said. I think we have a pretty solid group coming back. Theyre going to be really young, with really only two seniors starting in the field for us. Its the same every year at Lecanto; weve got to grind it out. We walked 12 guys in our two preseason games, and were still trying to figure the pitching out. Logue likes his defenses prospects up the middle and its experience at the corners, anchored by junior third baseman and pitcher Levi OSteen. Freshman Alex Delgado is slated to start at catcher. Hes going to have some growing pains, but hes been making some strides for us and hell be pretty seasoned by the end of the year, Logue said. Logue said his outfield and infield will include a lot of interchangeable parts. The kids will need to be flexible, but thats how it goes now. Every night therell be new faces in different spots. Offensively, Logue said his group is a work in progress. I think well move the ball around at the plate, but our guys need more confidence, he said. Well have some speed, but not as much as last year. These kids have shown flashes of potential, but its just how hard theyre going to work and handle themselves and respond to pressure. Seven Rivers joins the countys youth movement with a new coach as well, with head basketball coach Jim Ervin taking over the baseball team. Ervin counts his experience on the court with many of his players as an asset. The relationships with the kids as a coach (are) as important as anything, and I think thats probably going to be my biggest strength coming in, Ervin said. Were going to know what to expect out of each other. Ive got some great help from my assistant coaches as well, whove helped with the transition from basketball. Ervin especially likes his teams infield defense and speed, and is excited about three young newcomers, led by eightgrader Parker Pillsbury, who will join sophomore Cory Weiand and junior Adam Gage to comprise the core of what Ervin considers a strong pitching staff. He may be the best player on our team, hes that talented, Ervin said of Pillsbury, who also brings power to the Warrior order. Hes got four pitches and can put it where you tell him. Seven Rivers will roll out three lefthanded pitchers and four lefties at the plate. Ervin said his teams youth in the outfield is a potential weakness, and predicts it will take two to three weeks for basketball players such as Gage, Weiand, senior second baseman John Iwaniec and senior catcher Lance Mosher to get their arms in shape.

Ted Nugent invited to State of the Union WASHINGTON A Republican congressman says hes invited rocker Ted Nugent who has referred to President Barack Obama s administration as evil and America-hating, to the State of the Union address. Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas said Monday on his website that Nugent will be his guest for the presidents speech Tuesday night. Stockman has talked of impeaching Obama over his gun control proposals. In a speech to the National Rifle Association during the 2012 campaign, Nugent said that if Obama were reelected, the longtime guncontrol opponent would either be dead or in jail. Nugents remarks led to meetings with representatives of the Secret Service.Randy Travis performs at ex-SEALs memorialDALLAS Country music star Randy Travis has performed at the memorial service for slain ex-Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle Travis told the thousands gathered at Cowboys Stadium on Monday that he was glad to be there, adding that he never met Kyle, but wished he had. Travis then began playing his guitar and singing Whisper My Name, which he said Kyles wife had told him was a meaningful song for the couple. Travis also sang Amazing Grace. Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield were shot and killed Feb. 2 at a North Texas gun range. Travis has had a string of run-ins with the law over the past year. Last month, he pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in August 2012, when police found him naked after crashing his car.Buckwild cast member Amin arrestedCHARLESTON, W.Va. A cast member of the MTV reality show Buckwild is facing a drug charge in West Virginia. Twenty-four-year-old Salwa Amin was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Shes being held at the Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond. State police say a multiagency task force arrested Amin and two others late Sunday at a home in Summersville after receiving a tip from an informant. Officers say they found oxycodone pills and heroin. Jail Administrative Sgt. Rick Drake says Amin doesnt want to talk to the media. MTV spokeswoman Candice Ashton says the network doesnt have any comment. Buckwild shows wild young West Virginians. It has drawn criticism for what some see as a negative portrayal of the states youth.

On this date: In 1554, Lady Jane Grey, whod claimed the throne of England for nine days, and her husband, Guildford Dudley, were beheaded after being condemned for high treason. In 1818, Chile officially proclaimed its independence, more than seven years after initially renouncing Spanish rule. In 1909, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was founded. In 1912, Pu Yi, the last emperor of China, abdicated, marking the end of the Qing Dynasty. In 1915, the cornerstone for the Lincoln Memorial was laid in Washington D.C. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation with a reception at the White House. A Northwest Orient Airlines Boeing 720 broke up during severe turbulence and crashed into the Florida Everglades, killing all 43 people aboard. In 1973, Operation Homecoming began as the first release of American prisoners of war from the Vietnam conflict took place. In 1999, the Senate voted to acquit President Bill Clinton of perjury and obstruction of justice. Ten years ago: The U.N. nuclear agency declared North Korea in violation of international treaties, sending the dispute to the Security Council. Five years ago: General Motors reported losing $38.7 billion in 2007, a record annual loss in automotive history, and offered buyouts to 74,000 hourly workers.

Records) One thing you can say about the Foals is that they always mix it up. Their first album, Antidotes, was loaded with heavy drumbeats, while Total Life Forever was more melancholic with beautiful lyrical prowess. The British band sticks to their wild formula on the new album, Holy Fire. It opens with Prelude, a 4-minute long instrumental that blasts into Inhaler, showcasing a rockier side to the band. There are howling guitars and shouting vocals, courtesy of Yannis Philippakis. My Number is addictive and could have jumped straight from a Talking Heads record. It is funky, uplifting and playful, and the lyrics illustrate optimism: I feel the love, feel the love. Melancholia isnt far away though, as the record swings back down with Bad Habit, which is a soulful lament. Im a bad habit, one you cannot shake, sings Philippakis. J AKE OC ONNELL Associated PressVeronica Falls, Waiting for Something to Happen (Slumberland) The second full-length album from indie pops Veronica Falls is a tasteful guitar pop set, brighter in tone than their first. The London foursome takes a communal approach to singing their lovely melodies and there is nothing remotely discordant about the affair. The lyrics glorify the moments in between and aligned with the music play like anthems for the indecisive on Waiting for Something to Happen. These are songs about tiring of the people you hang out with, last conversations, the shortcomings of connectivity and the intersection of early adulthood. A few tracks take subtly winsome turns: the drizzle of classic British folk in the opener, the elliptical harmony on Shooting Star and the chorus on Falling Out blossoming into their catchiest moment to date. M IKE S ILVERMAN Associated PressVarious Artists, Wagner: Die Walkuere (Mariinsky) Theres no shortage of c lassic recordings of the second and most popular opera in Wagners four-part Ring cycle. This new version first installment of a projected complete Ring cycle from the historic Mariinsky Theatre in Russia is a worthy addition, thanks to the rapturous sweep that conductor Valery Gergiev achieves with the orchestra and to the deluxe cast, headed by todays reigning Bruennhilde, Swedish soprano Nina Stemme. She has the warmth as well as the steely strength to embody the warrior goddess who learns compassion at the cost of her immortality. Bass Rene Pape brings his trademark silken smoothness to the role of Wotan, and if one or two high notes sound effortful, he more than compensates with his deeply felt interpretation as an unusually brooding and introspective god.

Review: Autopsy a grimlook at Motor City Associated PressDetroit: An American Autopsy (Penguin Press) by Charlie LeDuff D etroit has long been the poster child for urban blight, a city that gives rise to images of crack houses, senseless killings, burnt-out buildings, civic corruption, high unemployment and flirtations with municipal bankruptcy. Charlie LeDuff, who grew up in Detroit and made his mark as a Pulitzer Prize winner for The New York Times, later returned home to immerse himself in his citys despair. His book, based in part on his reporting for The Detroit News captures the sights, sounds and smells of a crumbling, once-proud metropolis. The author rubs shoulders with the citys best and worst elements, arsonists who burn buildings for entertainment and firefighters struggling to protect innocent lives. Fire is cheaper than a movie, one firefighter explains, noting that a can of gas is $3.50 and a movie is $8, and there arent any movie theaters left in Detroit. To LeDuff, the Detroit firefighter is the man holding Neros fiddle. Tragedy strikes when a firefighter who befriends the author is killed when the roof collapses on an abandoned bungalow while he battles an arson fire. Woven into these episodes is a family memoir that traces LeDuffs background and recounts how the pathologies destroying Detroit have also taken a personal toll. The author and his family are not immune. It provides no road map toward redemption, but Detroit is a grim portrayal of the plight of one American city and sounds an alarm for others.

Rehospitalization No one fix can slow readmission epidemic L AURANN EERGAARD AP medical writer WASHINGTONM ore than 1 million Americans wind up back in the hospital only weeks after they left for reasons that could have been prevented a revolving door that for years has seemed impossible to slow. Now Medicare has begun punishing hospitals with hefty fines if they have too many readmissions, and a top official says signs of improvement are beginning to emerge. Were at a very promising moment, Medicare deputy administrator Jonathan Blum told The Associated Press. Nearly 1 in 5 Medicare patients is hospitalized again within a month of going home, and many of those return trips could have been avoided. But readmissions can happen at any age, not just with the over-65 crowd who are counted most closely. Where you live makes a difference, according to new research that shows how much room for improvement there really is. In parts of Utah, your chances of being rehospitalized are much lower than in areas of New York or New Jersey, says a report being released this week from the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care. The AP teamed with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to explore, through the eyes of patients, the myriad roadblocks to recovery that make it so difficult to trim unneeded readmissions. The hurdles start as patients walk out the door. Scared to go home, is what Eric Davis, 51, remembers most as he left a Washington hospital, newly diagnosed with a dangerous lung disease. His instructions: stop smoking. He didnt know how to use his inhale or if it was safe to exercise, until a second hospitalization weeks later. There is no single solution. But whats clear is that hospitals will have to reach well outside their own walls if theyre to make a dent in readmissions. Otherwise a slew of at-home difficulties confusion about what pills to take, no ride to the drugstore to fill prescriptions, not being able to get a posthospital check-up in time to spot complications will keep sending people back. This is a team sport, says readmissions expert Dr. Eric Coleman of the University of Colorado in Denver. It requires true community-wide engagement. Pushed by those Medicare penalties, hospitals are getting the message. Its made hospitals go, Oh my gosh, just because theyre outside my door doesnt mean Im done, said nurse practitioner Jayne Mitchell of Oregon Health & Science University, who heads a new program to reduce readmissions of patients with heart failure. In a pilot test, her hospital is sending special telemedicine monitors home with certain high-risk patients so that nurses can make a quick daily check of how these patients are faring in that first critical month. Patients dont have to be powerless, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation this week begins an effort called Care About Your Care, which offers consumers tips to guard against unnecessary readmissions. Everyone has to understand their role in improving the quality of care, including families, said Dr. Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, the foundations president. This could be a time when we turn the corner. Rehospitalizations are miserable for patients, and a huge cost more than $17 billion a year in avoidable Medicare bills alone for a nation struggling with the price of health care. Make no mistake, not all readmissions are preventable. But many are, if patients are given the right information and outpatient support. The new Dartmouth Atlas evaluated Medicare records for 2008 to 2010, the latest publicly available data, to check progress just before Medicare cracked down. In October, the government began fining more than 2,000 hospitals where too many patients with heart failure, pneumonia or a heart attack had to be readmitted in recent years. Change is hard and comes slowly, said Dartmouths Dr. David Goodman, who led the work. Of seniors hospitalized for nonsurgical reasons, 15.9 percent were readmitted within a month in 2010, barely budging from 16.2 percent in 2008. Surgery readmissions arent quite as frequent 12.4 percent in 2010, compared with 12.7 percent in 2008. Thats probably because the surgeon tends to provide some follow-up care. H EALTH & L IFE D espite evidence that earlier diagnosis and improved treatment increases survival, the rate of people seeking preventive cancer screening has fallen in the United States in the past 10 years. And a lot of the blame for this falls at the feet of major cancer organizations and our government agencies for failing to agree about screening guidelines. Another reason for the drop is the reductions in workers with insurance to cover the cost of screening. Researchers write about their NIH-funded study in a paper published Dec. 27 in the online open-access journal Cancer screening rates fall See BENNETT / Page C4 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Excess red blood cells hurt I saw Mr. Smith almost two years ago. He was admitted at Citrus Memorial hospital for a clot in his leg. He was 63 years old and fairly healthy at that time. I was consulted to do further workup. When he came for follow-up in my office, his RBC (red blood cell) count as measured in CBC by hemoglobin and hematocrit were mildly elevated. I ordered a blood test called the JAK-2 gene test. It was positive. He also had low erythropoietin level. This is diagnostic of a bone marrow problem Y ou have probably heard of general internist, general practice doctors and maybe even a gerontologist (one who specializes in the care of the older patient). Someday, there will be a full-fledged specialty called geriatric otolaryngology the specialty of caring for the ear, nose and throat problems of the older patient. At the time of this dictation, there are probably 7,000 general practices or internists who specialize in geriatric medicine, but probably only a handful of ear, nose and throat doctors who focus on this problem. This is certainly not enough to take care of the 80 million baby boomers who will be turning 65 or older through the next few years. Twenty or 30 years ago, there were a few ear, nose and throat doctors who decided this was an up-andcoming specialty. As a result of their pioneer work and interest in this field, young ENT residents are getting more training Geriatric otolaryngologist F ood manufacturers often present products in a way that makes them appear healthy and good for you, even when they are not. You can find the truth on the Nutrition and Facts label required by the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the packaging of all processed foods. Learning to read and interpret these labels will make you a smarter shopper and put you in control of your food choices. The top section of the label tells you the serving size and number of servings per container, followed by the number of calories per serving. The serving size is important, because it tells you how many calories you are consuming. For example, if a candy bar wrapper tells you the candy bar contains 240 calories per serving, and there are two servings in the package, you will be consuming 440 calories if you eat the whole candy bar.

Call Janet Croft at C2 T UESDAY, F EBRUARY12, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE H EALTH& L IFE Dating style tips for Valentines Day success W ell, you have a hot date for Valentines Day. You may be asking, How do I WOW them and feel comfortable, be beautiful and myself? Simple! First of all you should relax and understand that being you is beautiful. Sometimes we experience many social circles being wrapped up in who is wearing what and who has the best hair and blah, blah, blah. Life isnt about other people, it is about YOU and what makes you feel good. We all need a little jazzy makeover from time to time, so relax and enjoy these few tips for your jazzy new look. Always look inward instead of outward and enjoy yourself. Beauty comes from within so that is where we have to start. Soul-search, read, meditate and reach to your innermost being. We all need that time to ourselves to sort things out and get to know ourselves. In doing this, you will carry a contagious smile displaying your innermost beauty. Hair Your hairstyle is very important and can make or break your mood. Analyze your facial structure and see if your hair shape complements your bone structure. Feel your hair lengths and see if your hair was designed with the round of your head, if it has enough texture, if you have blobs of thick hair or if the lengths are even. Your design must complement your bone structure and the color must complement your skin tone. Remember that mature skin usually looks better with a little lighter color but not too light as it will wash you out. Keep some richness to complement your skin tone and eyes. Choose a different style for this date to give your date a double-take moment. If you always wear your hair back, go forward, change the part, and blow dry upside down for volume. If you go up with the hair, remember to complement it with hair accessories and bling. Skin care With the drier winter weather, you may be experiencing tight, dry skin. Search for shea butter, which is in many anti-aging skin care lines. Stick to the organic products, as the all-natural is better for your skin and feels great. Give yourself a facial the night before your date so that you skin will be polished and radiant. Attire Wear a color that makes your skin glow. For a romantic look, choose soft fabrics that flow or a silky sweater that feels cuddly. Dresses are nice if the weather permits. Know if you will be dancing so that you can wear appropriate shoes. Makeup Of course, mineral makeup is the best for coverage. Change your colors for this date. Apply a little more coverage with brighter, richer tones. If you normally wear nude lip color, wear a deep mauve or brighter wine color. This will give you a fresh new look. Remember to complement the colors in your garment. Choose two areas of the face to pop, like eyes and lips with minimal blush, or cheeks and eyes with pale lips. Gift Since it is Valentines Day, bring your date a gift. Choose a unique gift that you know they will enjoy. Make it personal and special. Enjoy your special date and your jazzy makeover. Life is what we make of it, so have fun and enjoy!

ToH EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, F EBRUARY12, 2013 C3 Skin patch approved to treat migraine headaches Q : I heard about a skin patch for treating migraine headaches. What can you tell me about it? A: The FDA recently (2013) approved Zecuity (sumatriptan iontophoretic transdermal system (TDS)) for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults. It is the first migraine patch approved for the acute treatment of migraine headache pain. The active ingredient in Zecuity is sumatriptan, which has been available for many years in oral tablets, injection, and as a nasal spray. Sumatriptan works by constricting (narrowing) specific arteries in the brain, which leads to relief of migraine headache. Zecuity is a single-use, battery-powered skin patch applied to the upper arm or thigh that delivers sumatriptan through the skin and provides relief of both migraine headache pain and migrainerelated nausea. The most common side effects of Zecuity are application site pain, tingling, itching, warmth, and discomfort. However, it also comes with several contraindications, warnings and precautions, which are outlined in its Patient Labeling Information. Approximately 31 million Americans have migraine headaches that can be debilitating or disabling. These headaches occur more frequently on one side of the head, are pulsating or throbbing and are accompanied by nausea or vomiting in most people. Migraines may also be associated with sensitivity to light or sound and can be aggravated by routine physical activity, such as climbing stairs. Certain foods and beverages may also bring on or trigger a migraine attack in certain people. Some of these dietary triggers are: Alcoholic drinks. Coffee, tea, cola. Aged cheese. Chocolate. Monosodium glutamate (MSG). Smoked fish. Nuts. Pickled foods. The exact cause of migraine headaches is not known, but research shows that a chemical known as serotonin is the main culprit. This chemical, which is found in the brain, can cause blood vessels to narrow or constrict and stimulate pain receptors. Levels of serotonin are unusually high just before a migraine and unusually low during the migraine attack. Many people who suffer from migraine have a family history of this problem and it is three times more common in women than in men. Migraine usually begins when a person is in their late teens or early adulthood and attacks can increase or decrease during menstruation, pregnancy and menopause. Some people can even feel when a migraine is coming (aura). If untreated, most migraine headaches can last at least four hours and up to 72 hours.

C4 T UESDAY, F EBRUARY12, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE H EALTH& L IFE Frontiers in Cancer Epidemiology. In the U.S., although the number of cancer survivors has gone up as a result of improved diagnosis and treatment, cancer is still one of the most prominent chronic diseases that in 2011 killed more than 570,000 people. Alongside a fall in rates of advanced cancer diagnoses in the U.S. in the past 10 years has been an increase in the number of cancer survivors returning to work. Research suggests that almost 12 million people are alive and well in this country who have survived cancer. And in these patients, continued surveillance is critical. We know that keeping to a cancer screening schedule could be an important factor as this helps detect secondary tumors early, and reduces potentially limiting side effects. However, research also reveals that although cancer survivors tend to show much higher rates of screening adherence, their numbers, too, have started falling off in the past three years, as well. There is a great need for increased cancer prevention efforts in the US, especially for screening, as it is considered one of the most important preventive behaviors, and helps decrease the burden of this disease on society in terms of quality of life, the number of lives lost, and insurance costs. Yet the major agencies in this country dont seem to be able to agree on anything. Despite the overwhelming proof that screening leads to early detection and increased cure rates, research has shown that adherence rates for cancer screenings have generally declined with severe implications for the health outlook of our society. In January 2012, a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) showed that the percentage of people screened for cancer in the U.S. remains below national targets for 2020, with rates lower among Asian and Hispanic Americans than other groups. In this study, researchers examined cancer screening adherence rates of the general public and cancer survivors, and compared them to government-recommended Healthy People screening goals. They looked at screening rates for colorectal, prostate, breast and cervical cancers. Not only did they compare rates between the general population and cancer survivors, but they also looked at rates among workers. The data on screening rates came from National Health Interview Surveys conducted between 1997 and 2010 that in total covered nearly 174,400 people age 18 and older. These annual surveys randomly sample the U.S. population by household, and collect demographic and health information, including cancer history and cancer-related health behaviors such as cancer screening. When the researchers analyzed the data, they found that the general population did not meet the governments Healthy People screening goals for any type of cancer apart from colorectal cancer. For this cancer, 54 percent of the general population underwent screening: the governments 2010 goal is 50 percent. But among cancer survivors, who have a higher risk for cancer, the pattern was quite different. Their screening rates, for all types of cancer except cervical (this fell to 78 percent over the past 10 years), exceeded the government goals. However, the researchers also noticed a decline in the number of cancer survivors who went for cancer screening in the last three years. Researchers also found that among survivors, white collar workers on the whole had higher cancer screening rates than blue collar workers. Researchers speculate that ongoing disputes over screening guidelines among bodies like the United States Preventive Services Task Force, American Cancer Society and others, plus reductions in rates of workers covered by insurance that have occurred in the past decade, may lie behind the trend. Nonetheless, I hope all of my readers appreciate the importance of screening, early detection, and successful treatment, a formula that will lead to fewer deaths and more cancer survivors in the years to come.

BENNETT Continued from Page C1 called polycythemia rubra vera. It is a disorder of the bone marrow. It mainly causes too much production of red blood cells, although the numbers of white blood cells and platelets are also increased. It is a rare disease that occurs more often in men than women, and is rare in patients younger than 40. In polycythemia vera, patients produce an excessive number of otherwise normal red blood cells, raising blood volume and viscosity which, in turn, creates a range of clinical problems. These include increased rates of major thrombotic events, such as a clot in the leg or DVT, as happened in my patient. It also increases the risk of stroke. The condition can also progress to leukemia or myelofibrosis (scar in bone marrow). The treatment includes periodic phlebotomy to bring down the hematocrit to less than 45. Some patients also need a medication called Hydroxyurea. An interesting research was reported at the American Society of Hematologys annual meeting. The findings were published simultaneously online in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study consists of 365 patients who were prospectively randomized to keep either hematocrit less than 45 in one group or between 45 and 50 in another group. At study entry, phlebotomy was employed in about two-thirds of patients in both treatment arms, and about half received hydroxyurea, also with no difference between groups. With median follow-up of 31 months, five patients in the low-hematocrit group and 18 in the high-hematocrit arm had death or major thrombotic (clotting) event. Researchers calculated incidence rates for the major clotting outcome of 1.1 per 100 patient-years for the low-hematocrit group versus 4.4 per 100 patient-years with the higher target. In other words, if we keep hematocrit below 45, it cuts down major clotting events by one fourth. Dr. Spivak, however, wished for more detailed analyses of possible gender differences. Women normally have a lower redcell mass and hematocrit than men, and women with polycythemia vera are at risk for intra-abdominal venous thrombosis (clot in major vein in the abdomen) with an apparently normal hematocrit, he wrote in the editorial. Therefore, the hematocrit target described by Marchioli et al. is adequate for men but inadequate for women, who on the basis of other studies should have a target hematocrit of less than 42%.

This is particularly true if ones practice is in a retirement area, like Florida. It would make sense that a specialist who is treating an 80or 90-year-old should be well versed on what goes wrong with 80or 90-year-old patients, ENT and otherwise. Just as there are problems and diseases that are common to pediatric patients, there are some that are very common to older folks, and the ENT doctor needs to incorporate this thinking. Geriatric-related problems that the ENT doctor will typically see include the most common issue of hearing and hearing loss issues, but also we see a great deal of balance disorders and dizziness. Impairment of sense of smell and taste is commonly seen as well as swallowing disorders that are related to many different causes, including stroke. Diseases and problems in the older patient are quite challenging for the primary care doctors and equally, if not more complicated for specialists who are trying to focus on a particular disease process such as cancer in the head and neck area while trying to balance the problems of what we call co-morbidities. Co-morbidities are problems that include obesity, blood pressure problems, diabetes, heart disease, dementia, just to name a few. They can complicate the medical and surgical treatment of the primary problem which the ear, nose and throat doctor is seeing the patient for. To treat the whole patient, the ENT doctor must understand the unique qualities and problems associated with the older ear, nose and throat patient, but also must work in partnership with the primary care physicians who are much more familiar with the patient and together come up with the best treatment course for the patient, taking in to account not only longevity but quality of life. I am thankful for the pioneers of 20 or 30 years ago who thought about the importance of geriatric otolaryngology. As a result of their efforts and continuing strides in training programs and medical schools, we are able to utilize the disseminated information and knowledge that will help us treat the older ENT patient.

snack makes up one-fifth to one-third of the 1,500 to 2,000 calories you need for the entire day 40 calories is low, 100 calories is moderate and 400 calories is high. The next section of the label tells you how many of those calories come from fat. Experts recommend a diet in which about 20 percent or less of the calories are from fat. In other words, for every 100 total calories you consume, only 20 should be calories from fat. Of course, some food items, like salad dressings, naturally have a high fat content. Be aware of how much you are consuming, and factor those calories into your total fat intake for the day. Next, the label tells you what type of fat you are consuming. Saturated fats are found in foods of animal origin and are converted to cholesterol by the liver. Polyunsaturated fats are generally from plant sources, and are healthier. Vegetable oils such as corn, soybean, safflower and sunflower oil, are high in polyunsaturated fats. Monounsaturated fats come from plants and include olive oil, canola oil and peanut oil. This section of the label also lists cholesterol content and sodium content. Hydrogen atoms are sometimes added to unsaturated fats through a process called hydrogenation to stabilize them and make them solid at room temperature. Transfat formed during the process of hydrogenation has been shown to increase the risk of heart disease. Transfats are often used in commercial baked goods. Since the FDA began requiring transfats to be listed on food labels in 2003, many manufacturers have removed them from their products. However, FDA guidelines allow manufacturers to list transfat if the product contains less than 0.5 grams of transfat. That means you could still consume a significant amount of transfat if you eat several servings. Look for the words partially hydrogenated oils in the ingredients list. The Percent Daily Value (%DV) down the right side of the label tells you what percentage of the recommended daily amount of fat, dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron are contained in a single portion. For any nutrient, 5 percent is considered low and 20 percent is high. Ingredients are listed in order according to the amount of that ingredient in the food. Be wary of foods that list added sugars (corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit juice concentrate, maltose, dextrose, sucrose, honey, maple syrup) among the first ingredients on the label. You can find these by looking at the list of ingredients of a food that advertises itself as Lite or No Sugar Added contains artificial sweeteners or is natural and unsweetened. In addition to the Nutrition Facts label, some foods include claims about nutritional content in their product levels. These terms are strictly defined by the FDA: fat free (less than 0.5 grams of fat), low fat (3 grams of fat or less), high fiber (5 grams or more of fiber), calorie free (less than 5 calories), sugar free (less than 0.5 grams of sugar) and so on. The meanings of other terms, such as organic, natural and energy, are not clearly regulated. Some products are marked with the logos of independent certifying agencies that verify the product meets certain standards. You can find nutritional information about fresh foods like meat, vegetables, and fruit in a calorie guide or on a health website. Always look at the ingredients on the package to see what you are actually consuming. There is a big difference between a sugary fruit drink and 100 percent fruit juice. A low-fat food can still contain large amounts of cholesterol. A whole-grain, highfiber breakfast cereal can be loaded with extra calories from fat and sugar.

Q : In yesterdays (Feb. 5) article, you mentioned that you use a standard toothbrush in the morning and a Sonicare toothbrush in the evening. My husband and I have used Sonicare toothbrushes for years (in fact, were each on our second one); however, we use this product both in the morning and at night. Could you please explain why you choose to use both types of toothbrushes on a regular basis? Thanks! A: This is a great question. What it really comes down to is tailoring a homecare regimen to each patient specifically. In this case, I am the patient and here is my reasoning. Like many people, I seem to have more time in the evening than in the morning to take care of my oral hygiene. Since this is the case and it is best to do your most thorough hygiene in the evening right before bed, I floss and brush with the Sonicare toothbrush at night. Incidentally, I do use the quadpacer that is incorporated in the brush. The quadpacer encourages 30 seconds be spent in each quadrant of the mouth, since it alerts you when each of the first three periods are complete and then turns off when the last, or forth, quadrant is done. I think this is a great tool for any age patient, because two minutes is a long time when doing something like brushing. I also happen to use prescription strength fluoride toothpaste with the Sonicare for two reasons. The prescription strength toothpaste has a significant ability to harden the tooth structure and decrease sensitivity. It also has no foaming agents that would cause me to gag. This is a super plus for me. There you have it. The nighttime should be the most thorough session: the Sonicare is a great brush to achieve an extremely clean mouth, the toothpaste I use has no foaming action ... no gagging! Flossing happens at night for the cleanest mouth to go to bed with, and it is all done when I have the extra time, at night. The morning regimen is simple. I brush to get the coating off of the teeth that can happen at night and for fresh breath. I use a toothpaste I like the flavor of in the morning since I put the fluoride on at night. As you remember from last week, I use an ultra-soft brush. In my opinion, this is the only brush to use. Anything stiffer can cause recession of the gums that I would prefer to not deal with. Please know this is the regimen that works best for me. My hygienists and I truly do recommend what we feel is the best for each patient, individually. It really can differ for each patient in a day. There are many rinses, toothpastes, medications and tools that can be of help to patients. I prefer to take the time to give each patient the least amount of work to get the best outcome. I have found through the years that keeping things simple is best. If too many things are recommended there is a higher likelihood that the patient will end up omitting one or two of them. If this were to happen it would hamper the goal of a thorough home care regimen. I hope this has answered your question. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

R ecently, the Crystal River Lions Club hosted a Puppy Raisers presentation at the Depot. Lion Ron Van Gelderon, vice president of the Orange Blossom Lions Club, and District Chairman Lion Ron Landbeck spoke passionately about the amazing skills of service dogs. Dogs are amazing animals. The many services they provide include guide dogs, companion dogs, drugand bomb-sniffing, rescuing, therapy dogs, service dogs and paws for patriots. An average of 3,000 dogs graduate from the Southeastern Guide Dogs School annually, where each dog receives 26 training days. On an average, at least 23 dogs are considered to determine a match for a person visually or hearing impaired. The personality of the individual is a significant determining factor. They make a great deal of difference in a persons life. When guide dogs complete their training and they are unable to meet the standard requirements, they are considered for further training as therapy dogs. Therapy dogs lessen the trauma for children who are required to undergo courtroom sessions with their Guardian ad Litem volunteers. There is a vast difference between wanting and needing a dog. The legally blind are given top priority for a guide dog. Rescue dogs search and find Alzheimers patients who wander away from home. Bomband drug-sniffing dogs are vastly important to our law enforcement officials. Volunteers make it all happen. More than 600,000 volunteer hours are given annually at Southeastern Guide Dogs, where dogs receive 18 hours of training per day. Dogs have multiple sounds and senses and they average six to eight years of service to an individual. Afterward, the owner has the option to keep the dog, then the puppy raiser and finally a list of people on an adoption list are considered. Black labs and golden retrievers are best suited for training. At Southeastern Guide Dogs, there are currently 353 dogs. Throughout the state, there are 239 volunteer puppy raisers. Their dog Gabby literally stole the show as the intricate skills of a guide dog were demonstrated. When determining a match for a dog, personality, lifestyle and gender are important considerations. Lion Ron Van Gelderon, blind since 2005, praised his dog Murray, describing their daily routine of either a 16-minute, one-mile walk or a lengthy four-mile walk. There are 12 regional schools for training, including one in Scotland. With 265 Florida Lions Clubs in Florida, volunteering to spread the word that they will always be in the forefront for the visually and hearing impaired with the training of dogs to serve them, there is hope and genuine compassion alive and well. Please consider membership in a Lions Club in your neighborhood. Long may their We Serve motto reign. Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

T UESDAY, F EBRUARY12, 2013 C7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Friedrich Schiller, a German poet, philosopher, historian and playwright who died in 1805, said, It is easy to give advice from a port of safety. That would also be easy for me to say. Some declarers, though, instead of working safely in port to make their contract, take risks on the high seas of bad distribution. In this example deal, South is in three notrump. West leads the heart eight (top of nothing), East wins with his king and shifts to the diamond queen. West correctly wins with his king and returns the 10, East overtaking with his jack. South ducks and wins the next diamond, West and dummy discarding hearts. How should South continue? Norths two-club rebid was New Minor Forcing, indicating at least game-invitational values and asking South to describe his hand further. Two no-trump denied three spades and four hearts. This auction kept dummys heart suit hidden momentarily, but resulted in the most damaging defense. Yesterday we saw that when North rebid a game-forcing three hearts, West led a club, the unbid suit. Then South took a safetyplay in spades (cash the ace, followed by low to dummys 10) to ensure his contract. Even now it looks as though dummys spades will provide the necessary tricks. However, a cautious declarer will cash his club winners first. Here he learns that West started with four hearts (presumably), two diamonds and two clubs. He seems marked with five spades. So declarer cashes his spade ace and plays a spade to dummys 10.

(WGN-A) 18 18 18 18 20ChrisChrisFunny Home VideosMotherMotherMotherMotherWGN News at NineFunny Home Videos D ear Annie: Twenty years ago, my wife had an affair with a coworker. It ended when he moved back to his home state 2,000 miles away. At the time, I asked my wife to go to counseling with me. We made it to one session before she pronounced our marriage healed. Sixteen months ago, out of the blue, this same guy contacted my wife via email, and they began communicating. I discovered they were planning to meet in Las Vegas. I begged her not to go, but she was convinced she loved him and had to know if they should be together. The month before her trip, I endured more pain than Ive ever experienced. I set up counseling sessions for us with separate therapists, arranged a meeting with our pastor and lost 20 pounds from the stress. In the end, this creep flaked out on their Vegas rendezvous, probably because he couldnt see himself leaving his children for her. She also was reluctant to leave our kids. However, the breakup crushed her, and she initially refused to work on our marriage. Finally, we went to a joint counseling session, but when the therapist made reference to her profound betrayal, that was that. My wife refuses to rehash what happened. Im worried that the only reason she is recommitting to our marriage is because the other man gave up on her. Things just dont feel the same. She insists shes done with this guy, but who really knows? Is it possible to move forward without dealing with the past? Torn Up in California Dear Torn: Maybe, but not if your wife is using your marriage as her rebound relationship in order to soothe her heartbreak. Thats a temporary com mit ment. Refusing to examine the reasons behind her vulnerability to the affair leaves open the possibility of repeating the betrayal and this is undoubtedly what most worries you. You cannot force your wife to work on this, so please get counseling for yourself, on your own. You need to learn what you can live with. Dear Annie: Nobody ever addresses how someones death affects the animals left behind. Dogs especially look forward to the return of their master each day with great anticipation. When my husband is away on vacation, our dogs wait at the door for hours and go through the same ritual each day until he returns. When a loved one dies, the pet has no comprehension that this person is not coming back. When one of our dogs has passed on, we always lovingly place them in an open box where the remaining animal can be alone with the deceased for at least a half-hour. That seems to help them understand and reach closure of some kind. Why cant we bring the animal to the funeral home or other appropriate setting and let the animal be with their friend one last time? Its the least we can do for our animal friends who give us unconditional love and companionship without asking for anything in return. Rocky Mount, Va. Dear Va.: Some funeral homes allow dogs as comfort animals for the bereaved. It is likely they would also permit an animal to attend a viewing before the service. It is certainly not an unreasonable request. Dear Annie: Dont Want a Contest feels his fiancees 13year-old son is jealous. Please tell him to back off. It is normal for a single mom and her son to have this sort of closeness, and the boy will grow out of it. My husband accepted my close relationship with my only child. My son would also sit in between us and want to snuggle in bed, but he came to accept my husband without resentment. My son died at age 15 from cancer. I never would have forgiven myself or my husband if I had missed out on one hug.

C12 000DY3O Resignation sends troubled church scrambling Associated PressVATICAN CITY With a few words in Latin, Pope Benedict XVI did Monday what no pope has done in more than half a millennium, announcing his resignation and sending the already troubled Catholic Church scrambling to replace the leader of its 1 billion followers by Easter. Not even his closest associates had advance word of the news, a bombshell that he dropped during a routine morning meeting of Vatican cardinals. And with no clear favorites to succeed him, another surprise likely awaits when the cardinals elect Benedicts successor next month. Without doubt this is a historic moment, said Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, a protege and former theology student of Benedicts who is considered a papal contender. Right now, 1.2 billion Catholics the world over are holding their breath. The move allows for a fasttrack conclave to elect a new pope, since the traditional nine days of mourning that would follow a popes death doesnt have to be observed. It also gives Benedict great Pope stuns the world Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation Monday, saying his strength of mind and body had diminished.Associated Press See RESIGN/ Page A4NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerThe one word on local Catholics lips Monday: Surprised. Early Monday morning, Pope Benedict XVI announced he will resign as Bishop of Rome, effective Feb. 28, stunning the world with his news. Its definitely unexpected a pope hasnt resigned since the 13th century, said the Rev. James Johnson, pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Inverness. The last pope to resign voluntarily was Gregory XII in 1415. Bishop Robert Lynch, bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, said in a statement released Monday, I have had the unique privilege in my own priestly life to come to know Josef Ratzinger well, and when he said shortly after his election as our Pope that he would resign if his health ever would not permit him to fulfill his responsibilities as he saw fit, I believed him. Lynch added, I repeat what I often said at the time of his election the church was given a leader with an incredible intellect, a pastors heart, and a very patient listener I am happy for him, that he is going to spend the rest of his days on earth at peace in prayer and study. And I shall always thank him for his love of the church. Lou Whittaker, principal of Pope John Paul II Catholic School in Lecanto, said the news was shocking, but also exciting because it gives the students the opportunity to witness the upcoming process of electing the next pope, which they did just eight years ago when Pope Benedict was elected April 19, 2005. I remember when Pope Benedict was chosen. We had the children sitting right in front of the television sets, and we were taking pictures of the expressions on their faces, she said. Then we were doing research right away who is this person and where does he come from? So, this will be a big focus for us, especially with the older kids. Its exciting because this doesnt happen very often.

Thats been on the radar to be done, Blocker said, referring to the seatreplacement project. Board members Pat Deutschman and Thomas Kennedy, however, wonder if this is the best time to be replacing auditorium seats. The district is facing a budget shortfall due to an unexpected drop in enrollment and the decision by Progress Energy and its parent company, Duke Energy, to pay $19 million in 2012 property taxes. County officials had expected a $35.1 million payment. Dukes decision to retire the nuclear plant could lead to an additional $6 million to $9 million cut from the companys tax payment this year, Progress Energy Florida President Alex Glenn said in a letter to county officials. School board members said they are looking at cuts this year and next year that do not impact the classroom. Deutschman said Monday each expense including new auditorium seats should be scrutinized. We need to question every single expense that we have coming out of capital outlay funds, she said. In todays economic reality, is it still the best use of our money? commented: I think it shows a humble man with good character. His statement talked about his health decline, and I admire a person who can step aside when they can no longer give to the job to the best of their abilities.

Dolan has been called a rock star of the Catholic faith.

Income eligibility limits are established by federal income guidelines that must be at or below 150 percent of poverty level, as follows: Maximum annual income for a household of 1 is $16,755; 2 is $22,695; 3 is $28,635; and 4 is $34,575. (Add $5,940 for each additional person in the household.) PATFAHERTY Staff writerLECANTO Inspired by the dire state of county finances, the Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County will spearhead an effort to develop positive solutions. It is a response to a budget presentation by County Administrator Brad Thorpe. Thorpe updated the alliance on the situation Monday in light of the property tax dispute with Duke Energy and its decision to retire the nuclear plant. We are about $15 million short on our current budget with Duke not paying what we expected, Thorpe said. It represents about $5.5 million to the board (county commission) and a little more to the schools. He cited its severe impact on the library system. Thorpe said of a $231 million budget, only $20 million is from property taxes and discretionary funds. Take $5 million out and you can see what the issue is, Thorpe said, repeating what he told the chamber. You could lay off every county employee and not balance the budget. He said it will be worse next year. Having the nuclear plant out of the tax system will mean the loss of another $4 million, raising the shortage to $11 million. Examples of discretionary spending that can be cut are parks and recreation and extension service programs. To balance the budget this year, the county borrowed from the vehicle trust fund, froze hiring and took some profits from utilities. Saying weve got to be positive, he stressed the impact this process was having on both county employees with 103 layoffs over the past four years or so and on county commissioners, who are being worn down by naysayers. Were all part of a family, he said, asking for the alliance to be supportive. Do we want to be the generation to shut the lights out in Citrus County? More taxes may be what it takes. He said they knew it was coming and have been trying to diversify through Port Citrus, the enterprise zone and the County Road 491 medical corridor. We cant give up hope, said Roy Carr. There are a lot of great things going on in this community. Dale McClellan suggested having the ag alliance get with the chamber and Economic Development Council to do something to show appreciation and offset the naysayers. Thorpe suggested those entities form a subcommittee and make recommendations or suggestions to the county. Mike Bays and Jimmy Brooks were selected to head up the effort. Dr. Philip Geist reported on farmers/citizens using the county canning center for surplus products and found it was too regulatory to consider commercial canning. He said it was an asset the alliance can help raise public awareness about and could be tied into home gardening education. Dudley Calfee urged people to be aware of where their produce comes from. Certain crops are in a battle with Mexico, he said. Tomatoes are going to lose, strawberries are fighting it out.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com. Ag Alliance hears about budget woes Brad Thorpecounty administrator made presentation Monday to Agricultural Alliance. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCHASSAHOWITZKA For the past 40 years, the First Baptist Church of Chassahowitzka on Miss Maggie Drive has been the little church that could. With an average of 40 members, theyve gone through their share of hard times. In 2005, the churchs pastor, Sunday school director and six Sunday school teachers all moved away and two members died. In 2010, their pastor, the late Rev. John Mattingly, had cancer in his jaw and tongue and preached on Sunday while taking chemotherapy during the week. The churchs leaky roof needed replacing there was a huge leaky spot right over where the choir sits on Sundays, among other places. So, the 40 or so members set out to raise the money needed for a new roof. Our goal was $12,000, said church member Mary Pelt. Since last April we raised $28,000. Church members sold their old jewelry to raise money; several non-members, people from the community, made surprisingly large donations, and they received memorial donations, Pelt said. Also, every third Sunday at the end of every service When the Saints Go Marching In would play and members marched toward the front of the church to make donations in a special offering box. On Saturday, with the brand new red Galvalume steel roof in place, church members met for an all-church cleanup day, getting ready for the churchs 40th anniversary homecoming day Sunday, Feb. 24. The public is invited. A special service begins at 11 a.m. As church members worked on the grounds and inside the church, the Rev. Tim Pauley, in his brown overalls, trimmed hedges. Its kind of a makeover for the church building, which shows the makeover of the peoples hearts, he said. It was done through the generosity of a lot of people of meager means who were willing to sacrificially give in order to see something greater come from it. Were all in this together, he said. Were all willing to work and to sacrifice. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com.

Associated PressORLANDO The criminal trial of former Republican Party of Florida chair Jim Greer had promised to be embarrassing for party leaders, rising Republican star Marco Rubio and former Gov. Charlie Crist, who is contemplating a new political future as a Democrat. But Greers guilty pleas on Monday to four counts of theft and a single count of money laundering ended the trial before it even started and ensured that some state GOP secrets will remain confidential, at least for the time being. There were a number of people who did not want this trial to go forward, and the trial isnt going forward, Damon Chase, Greers attorney, said after the former chair entered his pleas in court. Once again, Jim Greer is falling on his sword for a lot of other folks. Greer, 50, could face a prison sentence of 3 1/2 to 35 years when he is sentenced March 27. Assistant statewide prosecutor Michael Williams wouldnt say how many years prosecutors would seek. The trial had threatened to expose the underbelly of Floridas dominant political party and its formerly high-spending ways. Party officials took heat three years ago from revelations of excessive spending at restaurants and luxury hotels on partyissued American Express cards by Republican leaders, including Rubio. Testimony about those expenditures had been expected at the trial. Topics also covered in pretrial depositions included allegations of prostitutes at a state GOP fundraiser in the Bahamas, the drinking habits of Crist and intraparty strife. Some of Floridas most powerful politicians were scheduled as witnesses, including Crist, former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux, former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and several state House and state Senate leaders. Greers acknowledgment of guilt was what the party wanted all along, party attorney Stephen Dobson said, and they werent worried about potentially embarrassing testimony at trial. There was absolutely no concern. In fact, a lot of people were looking forward to clearing a lot of these allegations that had been made up, Dobson said outside the courtroom. Today the truth came out. Greer was vice mayor of the small central Florida town of Oviedo when Crist surprisingly picked him to be the state party chairman after he led local efforts to help Crist get elected governor in 2006. He previously was the president and CEO of a company that provides training to the hospitality industry on how to comply with alcohol laws. Former state GOP chief pleads guilty Greer corruption trial could have proved embarrassing for state leaders Corrections The date for the Berries, Brew and Barbecue event was incorrect on Page D3 of Sundays edition.

sway over the choice of his successor. Though he will not himself vote, he has hand-picked the bulk of the College of Cardinals the princes of the church who will elect his successor to guarantee his conservative legacy and ensure an orthodox future for the church. The resignation may mean age will become less of a factor when electing a new pope, since candidates may no longer feel compelled to stay for life. For the century to come, I think that none of Benedicts successors will feel morally obliged to remain until their death, said Paris Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois. Benedict had said as recently as 2010 that a pontiff should resign if he got too old or infirm to do the job, but it was a tremendous surprise when he said in Latin that his strength of mind and body had diminished and that he couldnt carry on. He said he would resign effective 8 p.m. local time on Feb. 28. All the cardinals remained shocked and were looking at each other, said Monsignor Oscar Sanchez of Mexico, who was in the room at the time of the announcement. As a top aide, Benedict watched from up close as Pope John Paul II suffered publicly from the Parkinsons disease that enfeebled him in the final years of his papacy. Clearly Benedict wanted to avoid the same fate as his advancing age took its toll, though the Vatican insisted the announcement was not prompted by any specific malady. The Vatican said Benedict would live in a congregation for cloistered nuns inside the Vatican, although he will be free to go in and out. Much of this is unchartered territory. The Vaticans chief spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said he isnt even sure of Benedicts title perhaps pope emeritus. Since becoming pope in 2005, Benedict has charted a very conservative course for the church, trying to reawaken Christianity in Europe where it had fallen by the wayside and return the church to its traditional roots, which he felt had been betrayed by a botched interpretation of the modernizing reforms of the Second Vatican Council. His efforts though, were overshadowed by a worldwide clerical sex abuse scandal, communication gaffes that outraged Jews and Muslims alike and, more recently, a scandal over leaked documents by his own butler. Many of his stated priorities as pope also fell short: he failed to establish relations with China, heal the schism and reunite with the Orthodox Church, or reconcile with a group of breakaway, traditionalist Catholics. There are several papal contenders in the wings, but no obvious frontrunner the same situation as when Benedict was elected after the death of John Paul. As in recent elections, some push is expected for the election of a Third World pope, with several names emerging from Asia, Africa and Latin America, home to half the worlds Catholics. The Vatican stressed that no specific medical condition prompted Benedicts decision, saying he remains fully lucid and took his decision independently. Any interference or intervention is alien to his style, Lombardi said. The pope has clearly slowed down significantly in recent years, cutting back his foreign travel and limiting his audiences. He now goes to and from the altar in St. Peters Basilica on a moving platform to spare him the long walk down the aisle. Occasionally he uses a cane. As early as 2010, Benedict began to look worn out: He had lost weight and didnt seem fully engaged when visiting bishops briefed him on their dioceses. But as tired as he often seemed, he would also bounce back, enduring searing heat in Benin to caress a child and gamely hanging on when a freak storm forced him to cut short a speech during a youth festival in Madrid in 2011. His 89-year-old brother, Georg Ratzinger, said doctors recently advised the pope not to take any more trans-Atlantic trips. His age is weighing on him, Ratzinger told the dpa news agency in Germany. At this age, my brother wants more rest. Benedict emphasized that to carry out the duties of being pope, both strength of mind and body are necessary strengths which in the last few months, have deteriorated in me.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HI LO PR NA NA NA HI LO PR 83 58 NA HI LO PR 82 55 NA HI LO PR NA NA NA HI LO PR 88 57 NA HI LO PR 78 58 NA YESTERDAYS WEATHER Partly sunny, warm and breezy.THREE DAY OUTLOOK Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of rain.

to $250. By harnessing free horsepower from a renewable energy source, Waldron said her bills are down to $60 or $70 a month. I started with the solar tube skylights in 2005, Waldron said. Then I had the solar attic fan and then I had the solar water heater and then I got the roof. They had to take the solar water heater off, put the roof on and reinstall the water heater. In addition to solar power installations, Waldron has improved her house with better energyefficient features such as a metal roof, ceramic floor tiles and new windows. Each year, Waldron completes another improvement project. She admitted it would have been better to have installed the roof before the water heater. Ive rebuilt the house, Waldron joked. There was a draft. So I had all new windows, and man, they made a difference. And the tile keeps your house cold. You dont like that in the winter, but I have a fireplace. Tile is great in the summertime. The metal roof deflects heat rather than absorbing it. Ive got the other shingle roof underneath it. Its a double layer, Waldron said. It totally keeps the house insulated and super dry. Waldron said she runs her air conditioning less in the summer because of the tiled floor, the insulated roof and the new windows. In addition, the solarpowered attic fan cuts the air conditioning need. It removes the heat from your attic, which makes your air conditioner work less, Waldron explained about the attic fan. You have so much lower electric bills. The five solar skylights in the house cost $600 total and are expected to last at least 15 years. Natural light beams down through the ceiling in rooms with small windows, such as bathrooms. It was a cave, Waldron said. These are lenses. I like them because you can see the sky. With the solar system for heating water, Waldron had an electric water heater that was relatively new, so had it adapted to solar use. She chose not to use a system with glycol as antifreeze, so she drains the water heater if the outside temperature gets down to freezing level. She said the solar water heater knocked her electricity bill down by a third. A large solar panel on Waldrons garage roof powers the water heater to heat water to at least 200 degrees. When I drain it, I can hang a shirt over it and get steam. So I can even steam a shirt, Waldron said. For her next installation, Waldron is planning for a solar tracking system in her backyard, but first she will have to move her fire pit since it is an area not shaded by trees. This system would cut her electricity bill to next to nothing. I want to get a rotator, Waldron said. Theyre called GPS trackers. Ill put 20 or 24 solar panels on it. Then it will track the sun and youll get 40 or 45 percent more power from the solar panels when you have a tracker. And its automatic. Its got like ballast in it. It doesnt work on power. When the sun goes down, it automatically goes back because the ballast cools. The solar panels are mounted on poles in the ground and move with a GPS tracking system that aligns the panels with the movement of the sun. The choice to power up with solar sources reflects Waldrons character. While she would not go off the grid completely, she wants to eliminate her electric bill except for the service charge. Ive always been independent and self-sufficient, she said. In addition, she admits to some amount of resentment of utility companies. I dont like paying them all that money, Waldron said. I will gladly not pay someone $200 a month. Waldron alluded to the 2006 law that allows a utility company to recover socalled advanced nuclear costs from its customers when explaining why the initial investment in solar power was worth the longterm benefits. Right now, I am paying forward, which I think is a very important point, she said. We are paying forward for nothing. But with this, you get immediate results. The new Westinghouse panels Im going to install, they have a 25-year warranty on them. And they pay you back. Its the only appliance that pays you back. The equipment and installation may not now be as prohibitively expensive as it once was. Solar has really gone down, Waldron said. People think $40,000 or $50,000, but you dont have to go that high. The panels have come down a lot. Her words are substantiated by a November 2012 report produced by the Department of Energys Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Solar photovoltaic power systems have been falling precipitously since 2008. As costs vary, a good way to start getting into solar power is to ask for estimates from solar contractors.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, FEBRUARY12, 2013 A5 Homosassa 621-7700 Crystal River 795-8600 Inverness 860-1037 000D0QW Toll Free 1-877-345-BUSH www.bushhomeservices.com PEST CONTROL T ERMITE S PECIALISTS S INCE 1967 F REE I NSPECTIONS Valentines Day Special PRIME RIB OR FISH DINNER FOR 2 Served with two sides, two glasses of wine or champagne & dessert $ 35 (Reservations suggested, not required) 1470 S.

Dell looks to calm shareholder concernNEW YORK Dell is trying to reassure shareholders about its proposed $24.4 billion acquisition by a group led by its founder, saying it considered a number of strategic options before agreeing to the deal. Dell Inc. laid out the advantages of the transaction in a regulatory filing Monday, three days after a major shareholder ridiculed the buyout as a rotten deal that undervalues the business. On Friday, Southeastern Asset Management Inc. sent a letter to Dells board of directors. Southeastern CEO O. Mason Hawkins threatened to lead a shareholder mutiny unless Dell came up with an alternative acquisition offer. Hawkins vowed to wield Southeasterns 8.5 percent stake to thwart the deal currently on the table. Only Michael Dell, the computer companys founder and CEO, owns more stock with a roughly 14 percent stake. Round Rock, Texas-based Dell said in its filing that it determined with independent advisers that the cash bid by a group led by Michael Dell was in the best interests of stockholders.HCA says KKR and Bain will sell 50M sharesNASHVILLE, Tenn. Hospital operator HCA Holdings Inc. said Monday a group of investors plan to sell up to 50 million shares of its stock. HCA said most of the shares will be sold by the private equity funds Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and Bain Capital Partners. HCA wont get any proceeds from the sale, which is expected to close Friday. As of December, Bain and KKR each owned 74.2 million shares of HCA. That gave them 16.8 percent stakes in the company, according to FactSet. Bain and KKR were among the firms that took HCA private in 2006. They were joined by Merrill Lynch and the Frist family, which cofounded the company. HCA went public again in March 2011 with an initial public offering valued at $3.79 billion, which made for the largest private equity-backed IPO in history.Report: AMR, US Airways boards to meet this weekDALLAS Directors of American Airlines and US Airways reportedly plan to meet Wednesday to consider a merger. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday negotiators were still considering the makeup of the combined companys board and an exact role for the CEO of American parent AMR Corp. US Airways declined to comment and AMR did not return messages. The companies are trying to finish a deal before Friday, when a confidentiality agreement covering some AMR bondholders expires. That could result in public disclosure about negotiation details. If the two carriers were to strike a deal, it would create the worlds biggest airline by passenger traffic, although United Continental Holdings Inc. would still be bigger if regional affiliates are counted.Study: 1 in 4 consumers had error in credit reportWASHINGTON One in four consumers found an error in a credit report issued by a major agency, according to a government study released Monday. The Federal Trade Commission study also said that 5 percent of the consumers identified errors in their reports that could lead to them paying more for mortgages, auto loans or other financial products. The study looked at reports for 1,001 consumers issued by the three major agencies Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. The FTC hired researchers to help consumers identify potential errors. The study closely matches the results of a yearlong investigation by The Columbus Dispatch. The Ohio newspapers report last year said that thousands of consumers were denied loans because of errors on their credit reports. The FTC says the findings underline the importance of consumers checking their credit reports. Consumers are entitled to a free copy of their credit report each year from each of the three reporting agencies. The FTC study also found that 20 percent of consumers had an error that was corrected by a reporting agency after the consumer disputed it. About 10 percent of consumers had their credit score changed after a reporting agency corrected errors in their reports. The Consumer Data Industry Association, which represents the credit reporting agencies and other data companies, said the FTC study showed that the proportion of credit reports with errors that could increase the rates consumers would pay was small. The study confirmed that credit reports are highly accurate, and play a critical role in facilitating access to fair and affordable consumer credit, the association said in a statement. Experian, a British company with international operations, also said in a statement the study confirms that consumer credit reports are predominantly accurate. At the same time Experian said it is not satisfied with this result and we continue to work toward ensuring credit reports are 100 percent accurate. The new U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has the authority to write and enforce rules for the credit reporting industry. In September the agency began ongoing monitoring of the credit agencies compliance. Its the first time they have faced such close federal oversight. The CFPB hasnt yet taken any public action against the agencies.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, FEBRUARY12, 2013 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,350 1,400 1,450 1,500 1,550 AF SONDJ 1,480 1,500 1,520 S&P 500Close: 1,517.01 Change: -0.92 (-0.1%) 10 DAYS 12,400 12,800 13,200 13,600 14,000 14,400 AF SONDJ 13,800 13,940 14,080 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 13,971.24 Change: -21.73 (-0.2%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1347 Declined1673 New Highs209 New Lows15 Vol. (in mil.)2,637 Pvs. Volume2,907 1,505 1,775 1197 1252 152 19 NYSE NASD DOW 13992.9713940.4113971.24-21.73-0.16%+6.62% DOW Trans.5927.155892.245909.15-2.18-0.04%+11.35% DOW Util.475.00473.06474.83+0.37+0.08%+4.80% NYSE Comp.8925.968898.558919.02-16.22-0.18%+5.63% NASDAQ3194.013182.193192.00-1.87-0.06%+5.71% S&P5001518.311513.611517.01-0.92-0.06%+6.37% S&P4001109.181104.701107.05-2.04-0.18%+8.49% Wilshire 500016035.3615986.6216024.30-10.74-0.07%+6.86% Russell 2000913.56910.22913.03-0.64-0.07%+7.50% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates 305 S.E. US 19 Crystal River 000E189 The Associated PressNEW YORK U.S. stocks drifted lower in thin trading Monday, pulling the Standard & Poors 500 index back from a fiveyear high. The broad-market index edged up slightly last week, enough to put it at its highest level since November 2007. With little in the way of market-moving news Monday, the S&P 500 slipped 0.92 of a point to close at 1,517.01. Seven of the 10 industry groups within the S&P 500 dropped. Now, with major indexes near record highs, many think the stock markets six-week rally is ready for a pause. The consensus seems to be that were due for a correction, said Brian Gendreau, market strategist at Cetera Financial Group. If you compound the increase weve had so far, this year would be the best year ever for stocks. And nobody thinks that thats going to happen. The best year ever for stocks? For the S&P 500 index it was 1933, when the index rebounded 46 percent in the middle of the Great Depression. In other trading Monday, the Dow Jones industrial average dropped 21.73 points to 13,971.24. UnitedHealth Group led the Dow lower, losing 62 cents to $57.12. The Nasdaq composite fell 1.87 points to 3,192.00. Trading volume was light, with 2.6 billion shares trading on the New York Stock Exchange. That compares with a twomonth moving average of 3.4 billion. Solid earnings reports have helped feed the rally in recent weeks. Of the 342 companies in the S&P index that reported results through last week, two out of every three have beat Wall Streets earnings estimates, according to research from Goldman Sachs. Gendreau pointed to three reasons he believes that stocks still have room to run. Even after the markets recent surge, the typical stock looks fairly priced when compared to underlying earnings. Corporations keep finding ways to boost profits, which helps lure stock prices higher. And Americans looking for places to put their savings have few attractive alternatives. Ill go out on a limb and say that I think earnings growth, attractive valuations and pent-up demand will add up to a fairly strong year for equities, Gendreau said. Apples stock gained following reports over the weekend that the tech giant is developing a wristwatch-like gadget, a smart watch. The device would reportedly run the same operating system used for iPhones and iPads. Apple rose $4.95 to $479.93. The stock market raced to a stunning start this year. A last-minute deal in Washington to avoid tax hikes and spending cuts known as the fiscal cliff eased fears that the budget cuts could lead the U.S. into a recession. Markets soared in relief.

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2013 Keep safety in mindThis letter is in reference to your editorial printed on Feb. 4 regarding our school board and tough fiscal choices. In particular I would like to address the paragraph where you say: The school board has rejected cutting programs like the Marine Science Station in the past and we would encourage them to do so in the future. We would much rather have students walking a mile or two to school than be told you cannot be a marine biologist. I believe that children walking to and from school for two miles in the dark presents a clear and present danger and is an unacceptable risk to the school children of Citrus County. For the public record, please tell us how many students have attended the Marine Science program and exactly how many of those students have be come graduate marine biologists? It would be sad if the school board chose fish camp over students safety.Donald H. Schultz HomosassaThanks for supportDonna Danback and family would like to thank all the businesses and individuals who helped make the benefit for Donna Danback at Cities Bar on Jan. 11, a huge success. Thank you to Citrus 95 and the Citrus County Chroniclefor advertising this event. Thank you to all who donated items for auction and food, and to all the businesses that showed their support by hanging flyers! Thank you to Will Wilson at Citrus Sports for donating our Support Donna Tshirts. We would like to thank Cities Bar for hosting the event, and a special thanks to all of you who opened your hearts and dedicated your time and effort to make this benefit possible. Thank you to all who came out that night to show support for Donna in her fight with cancer. Our community is filled with great people and we are proud to call Citrus County our home!Donna Danback and family Last year the Florida Legislature passed a bill that allowed returning outright prayer to public schools. Not a moment of silence, not the gathering around the flagpole on the National Day of Prayer, but the bona fide right of students to lead other students in prayer at any student assembly, even mandatory ones. School officials are prohibited from interfering or even judging whether the prayer in question is appropriate. Theoretically, a prayer could invoke the Holy Trinity in every line, making it explicitly Christian. It could also invoke Wiccan paganism, though given Floridas more Christian-theocratic mania these days, we know very well what sort of hosannas would tend to prevail. One caveat: the law does require local school boards to pass resolutions enacting the allowance before students can take advantage of it. Its a constitutionally problematic law in many regards. Beside the outright violation of the First Amendment public schools, as government entities, would be endorsing religion whether a prayer is student-led or not, since students are acting under authority of their school prayer of any sort at student assemblies would be a coercive end-run around at least some students right to be left alone. Its an even bigger problem if school boards must enact a resolution to enable student prayer, because it certifies prayer is made possible at the will of the board. Not surprisingly, not a single one of Floridas 67 school boards enacted such a resolution. Theyve followed the state School Board Associations advice: Leave well enough alone. Its not worth the legal muck that could be triggered by one extremist invocation too many. That enlightened streak may be about to end. For the last two straight meetings of the Flagler County School Board, one of its members, John Fischer, has implored his colleagues to seize on the state law and return prayer to schools. Both times he laced his impassioned proposal in a doublebladed call to unity while attacking political correctness and special interests for keeping prayer out of schools. You know, theres just hate, Fischer said, without providing a single example of the hate he spoke of, even though he said he had seen it in the school boards own meeting chambers. Why cant we get along? Dont be afraid of the political correctness. Dont be afraid of all the activist groups. Dont be afraid of all these peoples hate, and spread hate. Wheres our rights? It was a strange question, coming from an even stranger perspective. Even as the school board member was calling for all to get along, he was doing so by creating an us-versus-them divide he did not define beyond those who pray to a Christian god and those who dont. The criticism of special interests and political correctness is also ironic, considering what that correctness has enabled in public schools, including racial integration, equality for girls in school athletics, equality for students with special needs, respect for students of all creeds and lifestyles whether atheist, Catholic, gay, Wiccan or undefined. One of the great and enduring successes of the American public school, all academic hand-wringing aside, is its admirable reflection of principles of equal opportunity, fairness and respect for all. Few other institutions, including private and charter schools, can make that claim. Schools balancing of public and private religious rights is among those successes. Why jeopardize it? Even before last years resurrection of school prayer, Florida wasnt quite the atheistgodless-communist redoubt its mullahs would make you believe it was. Public schools could and still may provide up to two minutes of silence at the beginning of every day for prayer or meditation. (Schools are loath to do that only because their hours have been slashed as it is, to save money, so further reducing instructional time wouldnt be wise.) Students can pray at any time of their choosing, anywhere they please, even in groups, as long as it doesnt interfere with school activities. Florida law also requires the Department of Education to distribute explicit guidelines on Religious Expression in Public Schools to every school board member, superintendent, principal and teacher in every school, making students rights to pray very clear. Then came last years curveball of a prayer law. School boards have sensibly held their bats. Let us pray they continue to do so, Flagler Countys veiled nostalgia for a more unequal past notwithstanding.Pierre Tristam is editor and publisher of FlaglerLive.com, a nonprofit news service based in Palm Coast.

Thomas Huxley expressed it well: Do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not. That may be the feeling among residents around the Blue Waters area of Homosassa, after a recent public meeting at which county water resource officer Ken Cheek discussed a planned sewer line extension. The project, Phase V of the countys overall water quality project, is intended to get septic tanks away from the Homosassa River. More than half the residents at the meeting indicated they favored the project. Is it the right thing to do? Absolutely. Cheek cited the University of South Florida study of neighboring Chassahowitzka septic tanks that showed dye put into residential toilets coming out in the main springs just three days later. The Homosassa River and the Chassahowitzka are Outstanding Florida Waters. More than that, the Homosassa is among Floridas 41 water bodies carrying the designation of Special Waters. These are, according to the state, waters of exceptional recreational or ecological significance, providing environmental, social and economic benefits (that) outweigh environmental, social and economic costs of preservation. Some who have lived for years with septic tanks dont see a pressing need for change, but now definitely is the time to do it, for ecology as well as for economy. The Homosassa Rivers springs areas adjacent to the properties within the Phase V footprint already are impaired from increased nutrient levels. It is the right time financially, too. Grant monies available now to help lower land owners costs will disappear if the project isnt started within a few months. Cheek is continuing to search for additional funding, including from the Southwest Florida Water Management District. His recent presentation to its grants committee, in which he pitched the sewer project as a solution for a critical water quality issue, was received well. The application will be included in the FY 2014 project ranking list, a good first step in the process. Hes also looking for other sources. Construction will be a hassle and there will be expenses (with option to pay over 10 years), but this sewer project is the right thing to do, and now is the right time to do it.

The Republicans always say they are against taxes, but they are right now involved in pushing through a bill to tax more of your money on the Internet. I guess they cant get the lobbyists on the Internet to pay for their vacations and things, so theyre going to tax the American public especially in Florida for this business. No taxes?

Thank you post office.

This has to stop.Get over itI was reading in the paper today, Feb. 7, someone wrote in about Handicapped hindrance.

Protect water as resourceU.S. Gypsum applied for a water permit from SWFWMD recently. They want almost a half-amillion gallons per day from a Crystal River well for commercial and industrial purposes. U.S. Gypsums permit doesnt say what they want the water for or what they are doing with it. Are they going to add dangerous chemicals to it? How much will be returned to the sewage system? Will U.S. Gypsum pay sewage fees? What are the dangers associated with this industrial process with chemicals that will find its way into the aquifer? How will U.S. Gypsum impact the ecology of the Nature Coast? How much water will be withdrawn from their region before SWFWMD says no to more permits? Will they ever say no? Will overpumping continue until our freshwater turns to saltwater? The aquifer level has been steadily trending downward and the salt content is trending upward. Do we just go along blissful in our ignorance until the policies of SWFWMD destroy our water with salt water intrusion like Cedar Key or other southern Florida areas? Why arent water meters required for industrial users? Every gallon of water represents profit to this company, and is there nothing to make them quit pumping when their allotted amount is reached? How would anyone even know when that point occurs? Our water is not a commodity to be wasted. With SWFWMDs current policy of over allocating permits, everyones right to good drinking water is being sacrificed. We need to protect our water and not waste it. Policy needs to change! Where do you think Cedar Key gets its water now? SWFWMD needs to reject these large water consumptive permits and start requiring water meters. Commercial users need to pay dearly for water. What happens if our water goes salty? It can happen very quickly like Cedar Key. What do you think our property would be worth then? We are seriously endangered with salt water intrusion that is happening now. Overpumping fresh water reduces the pressure we need to keep out the salt water surrounding Florida. Ever try to live without water? You cant!Roger Dobronyi InvernessFailure of leadershipIn a letter to the editor on Feb. 4, 2013, Serve constituents not own interests by Roger B. Krieger, he criticizes Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugent for voting against H.R. 152. He called it Sandy Storm aid. Sen. Nelson did vote for the bill. H.R. 152 titled, Disaster Relief Appropriations Act 2013, is supposed to be for emergency repairs caused by Hurricane Sandy. This relief act with an amendment added, will cost the taxpayers $60.2 billion. Almost half of this money goes for earmarks that were added to the bill for non Sandy related items. It is all deficit spending and will be added to our national debt. Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugent voted against this bill because of these added earmarks which are not covered by spending cuts in other areas. Prior to this bill, they both voter for a proposed bill that didnt contain any earmarks or amendments but it was defeated. I applaud both Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugent for trying to control our tax dollars and the national debt. Sen. Nelson, who like many in our government, seems to think we have an unlimited supply of money. We dont and we need to cut spending and reduce our national debt. Back on March 16, 2006, then Sen. Obama made a speech to Congress concerning a request to raise the national debt ceiling. He said, and I quote in part, The fact that we are here today to debate raising Americas debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our governments reckless fiscal policies. Increasing Americas debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. When he made this speech our national debt was approximately $8.4 trillion, today seven years later our national debt is about to pass $16.4 trillion and rising. President Obama, in four years, is responsible for $6 trillion of this debt. When is this going to end? He says he is not responsible for this increase. He says we are obligated to pay our bills that were created in Congress. He seems to forget that the bills passed by Congress dont become laws until signed by the president. He has signed these bills into law, thus he is responsible for this $6 trillion increase to our national debt. As far as Mr. Kriegers statement that Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugent have sworn oaths to a millionaire and a fringe political group, which they clearly prize over the oath to our constitution. Mr. Krieger, you need to check out the list of major donors to the Democratic Party. Its very interesting. Then also check to see if any of these people and groups have benefited from stimulus money or other government funds that have added to our national debt. While you are doing all this checking, also check who has been ignoring our Constitution for the last four yours. I agree with what Sen. Obama said in 2006. Today we have a failure of leadership and Americans deserve better.Bob Balogh HomosassaThis is not recoveryI keep hearing over and over on the news media and from the politicians that the recession caused by the forced building boom and the collapse of those that caused the problem (the major banks and Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac) is over and we have recovery again. True, those that caused the problem of the building bubble have recovered and are doing well thanks to the handout by the federal government. However, it seems to me at that time, fall of 2008, we already had close to 20 million unemployed, factories were moving out of the country or forcing the labor force in the private sector to take reduced wages and less in benefits such as retirements, health care and working conditions. Those that brought about free trade or favored nation status have done quite well; while our national debt has skyrocketed and foreign nations are holding trillions of American dollars used to buy our treasury bills, our factories, our land, our communities and even our roads. Why, look at how finance elections and they who controls our government. At the same time there are still 16 to 18 million either unemployed or underemployed as the middle class Americans worked, their share of the national wealth and income continually fall. This is not recovery, but response for the American people by the very wealthy through the federal and state governments (like whats happening here in Florida).Jack Mann Crystal RiverOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, FEBRUARY12, 2013 A9 Letters to the EDITOR *Deposit may be required. **$250 in Gift Cards Promotions Gift cards vary in shopping value of $25 or $50 each with available shopping credit to be to be used at eight (8) different eOutlet Store retailers.

Medal Associated PressRetired Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha receives the Medal of Honor Monday in the East Room of the White House in Washington. Romeshas leadership during a daylong attack by hundreds of fighters on Combat Outpost Keating in Afghanistan led to the award. Ex-cop charged with murderRIVERSIDE, Calif. A fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer was charged Monday with murdering a Riverside officer in a potential death penalty case, but hundreds of tips triggered by a $1 million reward failed to end the manhunt. Christopher Dorner was also charged with the attempted murder of another Riverside officer and two Los Angeles Police Department officers, Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach said. The LAPD officers and the Riverside officers were fired on in two separate shootings early Thursday after Dorner, 33, became the target of a manhunt following the killing in Irvine of a former LAPD captains daughter and her fiance the previous weekend.Two charged in student shootingCHICAGO Two men were charged with murder Monday in the death of a 15-year-old Chicago honor student who was shot just days after returning from Washington, where she performed during President Barack Obamas inauguration festivities. The two young men, ages 18 and 20, were described by police as persons of interest when they were taken into custody early Sunday, a day after first lady Michelle Obama and other dignitaries attended the funeral of Hadiya Pendleton. Chicago police spokeswoman Melissa Stratton said late Monday that both young men are now charged with one count of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm. Their names havent been released. Pendleton, a popular high school majorette, was with a group of friends who took cover during a rainstorm under a canopy in a park about a mile from the Obama home on the citys South Side. Police said a man hopped a fence, ran toward them and opened fire with a handgun. Pendleton was struck in the back and died later that day.

The alcohol volume is being lowered from its historic level of 45 percent to 42 percent or 90 proof to 84 proof. The brand known for its square bottles sealed in red wax has struggled to keep up with demand that more than doubled the past seven years.

Finger-pointing has grown by the day, involving more countries and more companies. On Monday, Romanian officials scrambled to defend two plants implicated in the scandal, saying the meat was properly declared and any fraud was committed elsewhere. France said Romanian butchers and Dutch and Cypriot traders were part of a supply chain that resulted in horsemeat being labeled as beef before it was included in frozen dinners including lasagna, moussaka and the French equivalent of Shepherds Pie.Taliban warns about ViagraPESHAWAR, Pakistan The head of a trade association for a large market in northwestern Pakistan said the Taliban have warned shopkeepers not to sell sex-related drugs like Viagra, or obscene films.

Afridi said Monday that he distributed a pamphlet to thousands of shopkeepers in the Karkhano market in Peshawar city asking them to comply with the order. Afridi said the Talibans message warned that selling sex-related drugs and obscene movies was against Islam. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressLANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. The Pentagon for the first time is considering scaling back the massive buildup of drones it has overseen in the past few years, both to save money and to adapt to changing security threats and an increased focus on Asia as the Afghanistan war winds down. Air Force leaders are saying the military may already have enough unmanned aircraft systems to wage the wars of the future. And the Pentagons shift to Asia will require a new mix of drones and other aircraft because countries in that region are better able to detect unmanned versions and shoot them down. If the Pentagon does slow the huge building and deployment program, which was ordered several years ago by then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates, it wont affect the CIA drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere against terror suspects. Those strikes were brought center stage last week during the confirmation hearing for White House counterterror chief John Brennan, President Barack Obamas pick to lead the CIA. Gen. Mike Hostage, commander of Air Combat Command, said senior leaders are analyzing the militarys drone needs and discussions are beginning. But he said the current number patrolling the skies overseas may already be more than the service can afford to maintain. Overall, Pentagon spending on unmanned aircraft has jumped from $284 million in 2000 to nearly $4 billion in the past fiscal year, while the number of drones owned by the Pentagon has rocketed from less than 200 in 2002 to at least 7,500 now. The bulk of those drones are small, shoulder-launched Ravens owned by the Army. The discussions may trigger heated debate because drones have become so important to the military. They can provide 24hour patrols over hotspots, gather intelligence by pulling in millions of terabytes of data and hours of video feeds, and they can also launch precisely targeted airstrikes without putting a U.S. pilot at risk. Military weighs drone cuts Strategic focus shifts to areas where UAVs are more vulnerable Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. The workweek opened with a whiteknuckle ride Monday in the snowclobbered Northeast as drivers encountered unplowed streets, two-lane roads reduced to a single channel and snowbanks so high it was impossible see around corners. Schools remained closed across much of New England and New York, and more than 80,000 homes and businesses were still waiting for the electricity to come back on after the epic storm swept through on Friday and Saturday with 1 to 3 feet of snow that entombed cars and sealed up driveways. The storm was blamed for at least 18 deaths in the U.S. and Canada, and officials warned of a new danger as rain and higher temperatures set in: roof collapses. In hard-hit Connecticut, where some places were buried in more than 3 feet of snow, the National Guard used heavy equipment to clear roads in the states three biggest cities. This is awful, said Fernando Colon, of South Windsor, Conn., who was driving to work at Bradley International Airport near Hartford on a two-lane highway that was down to one lane because of high snowbanks. Most major highways were cleared by Monday, but the volume of snow was just too much to handle on many secondary roads. A mix of sleet and rain also created new headaches. A 10-mile stretch of Interstate 91 just north of Hartford to Massachusetts was closed briefly because of ice and accidents. In New York, where hundreds of cars became stuck on the Long Island Expressway on Friday night and early Saturday morning, some motorists vented their anger at Gov. Andrew Cuomo for not acting more quickly to shut down major roads, as other governors did, and for not plowing more aggressively. There were cars scattered all over the place. They should have just told people in the morning, Dont bother going in because were going to close the roads by 3 oclock. I think Boston and Connecticut had the right idea telling everybody to stay off the roads and we got a better chance of clearing it up, said George Kiriakos, an investment consultant from Bohemia, N.Y. On Monday morning, he said, conditions were still miserable: Its just as slick as can be. Youve got cars stuck all over like its an obstacle course. Cuomo has defended his handling of the crisis and said that more than one-third of all the states snow-removal equipment had been sent to the area. He said he also wanted to allow people the chance to get home from work. People need to act responsibly in these situations, the governor said. The number of homes and businesses without power was down from a peak at 650,000. More than 70,000 of those still waiting were in Massachusetts.

After storm, Northeast commuters head out to face elements Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian rebels scored one of their biggest strategic victories Monday since the countrys crisis began two years ago, capturing the nations largest dam and iconic industrial symbol of the Assad familys four-decade rule. Rebels led by the alQaida-linked militant group Jabhat al-Nusra now control much of the water flow in the countrys north and east, eliciting warnings from experts that any mistake in managing the dam may drown wide areas in Syria and Iraq. A Syrian government official denied that the rebels captured the dam, saying heavy clashes are taking place around it. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. But amateur video released by activists showed gunmen walking around the facilitys operations rooms and employees apparently carrying on with their work as usual. In the capital, Damascus, the rebels kept the battle going mostly in northeastern and southern neighborhoods as the fighting gets closer to the heart of President Bashar Assads seat of power. The capture of the alFurat dam came after rebels seized two smaller dams on the Euphrates river, which flows from Turkey through Syria and into Iraq. Behind al-Furat dam lies Lake Assad, which at 247 square miles is the countrys largest water reservoir. The dam produces 880 megawatts of electricity, a small amount of the countrys production. Still, the capture handed the rebels control over water and electricity supplies for both government-held areas and large swaths of land the opposition has captured over the past 22 months of fighting. This is the most important dam in Syria. It is a strategic dam, and Lake Assad is one of the largest artificial lakes in the region, said Rami AbdulRahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Associated PressGAINESVILLE No. 7 Florida has mostly dominated the Southeastern Conference this season, winning nine of 10 games by double figures and most of those by lopsided margins. All that success would mean little if the Gators dont beat No. 25 Kentucky tonight. Florida has dropped five in a row, including all three meetings last season, against the Wildcats. So all that talk about being the class of the conference in 2013 would be moot if the Gators dont reverse the trend against the defending national champions. Its always going to be in the back of our minds that they beat us three times last year, but its a new year and we have things that were focused on this year and thats winning an SEC championship, Florida guard Scottie Wilbekin said Monday. And in order to do that, we need to beat them, so its an important game. The Gators (19-3, 9-1 SEC) have won 11 of their past 12 games and are 11-0 at home this season. They handled Wisconsin, routed Missouri and cruised by Mississippi the toughest games to date in the OConnell Center.

Brand new ballgame for county squads Citrus teams rebuilding after losing many of last years startersSEANARNOLD CorrespondentThere are more questions than answers for this years crop of prep baseball teams. A 2012 class has departed that featured four former Chronicle Players of the Year, as well as the cores of three talented teams, among them a Citrus group that advanced to the 6A regional final game. The Hurricanes are looking to replace at least seven starters this season while returning just six of last years 200 innings of pitching experience. Third-year Citrus coach Brady Bogart expects juniors Chad Dawson and Ben Wright, both former JV standouts, to help bolster this years inexperienced club, while the offense will rely on the more experienced bats of sophomore Brooks Brasher, junior Cody Bogart and senior Kyle Tobin, all key contributors for last years Elite 8 team. He says his Canes may play as many as seven sophomores and a freshman in games, and are putting players in up to three positions a night to find the best fits. We feel pretty comfortable with Dawson and Wright, and we think our sophomores can step up and throw strikes on the mound and make contact at the plate, Bogart said. Brasher and Bogart all bring back a lot of quality at-bats, and were looking to Tobin to be one of our sparks in the top of the order. The rest of our guys have come from the JV program, which has been successful. The last four years were good to see for our county. We told our sophomores that they can be that next special group if they do the work every day. Were preparing ourselves to play two good games at the end of April, not matter what our record is, Bogart said of the teams goals for the district, which includes Lecanto, Springstead, Central and West Port. Crystal River is replacing six senior starters from a season ago, including most of its pitching staff outside of sophomore Jordan Humphreys. Despite the uncertainties and inexperience, fifth-year head coach Bobby Stack is enjoying working with the new faces. Its a building year, but its fun, Stack said. The kids are real attentive; they pay attention and make adjustments. I got excited about this team from the preseason tournament. Pitching is an obvious concern for Stack, whose Pirates defeated Springstead and Lecanto in a pair of preseason contests. Ever since mid-January, its been a big stress for me, he said. Ive been spending a lot of time in the bullpen with them, trying to get them more consistent at hitting spots, but we Canes breeze by Bears Spring is here Pitchers and catchers report to spring training Associated PressNew Marlins manager Mike Redmond arrived at his office at 5 a.m. Monday ready to go long before the Florida sun was shining, his thoughts already on a date 254 days from now: Game 1 of the World Series. Ah, spring training. When all 30 teams are still contenders. Everybodys excited, Redmond said in Jupiter. Obviously, weve got a tremendous opportunity for guys in this camp and I think everybody realizes that. Its a fresh start. From a chilly and damp Phoenix, Ariz., to balmy Kissimmee, Fla., pitchers and catchers for 10 teams reported to training camp Monday, taking physicals, meeting new teammates and, in some cases, managers and coaches. The pop of fastballs in mitts, they could be heard, too. Many eager players have been working out informally for weeks on minor league fields position players dont report for several more days, and all teams will be in full swing by the weekend. In Tampa, Fla., Yankees captain Derek Jeter ran on a treadmill for the first time since breaking his ankle on Oct. 13, a big step toward reaching his goal of being in New Yorks opening day lineup on April 1 against Boston in the Bronx. In his third week of baseball activities, Jeter was on the infield grass fielding groundballs and in a batting cage taking swings all while dozens of autograph-seeking fans lined up outside the Yankees minor league complex down the road from the big league facility. I feel fine, Jeter said. I was able to do everything else. I just had to be careful with my ankle, but now Ive gotten the green light with that. Ive gotten all the green lights I need. In Fort Myers, Fla., Red Sox principal owner John Henry put to rest reports that he was considering selling the franchise. You just dont get an opportunity to own something like the Boston Red Sox. As long as we can do it, the three of us are committed to being here, Henry told reporters, while acknowledging team president Larry Lucchino and chairman Tom Werner. These thoughts that were somehow selling, those are just not true. With a new manager, John Farrell, replacing Bobby Valentine after one disastrous 69-93 season, Henry likes Bostons chances. I would say, especially in comparison to last year, I should be optimistic, Henry said. In Kissimmee, the Houston Astros began their first day in the bruising AL West. One of the most inexperienced teams in baseball will wear fiery orange practice hats and jerseys that evoke the orange rainbow stripes of a better time for an organization that lost more than 100 games each of the past two seasons.

Associated PressTorontos Korbinian Holzer, right, and Philadelphias Mike Knuble battle for the puck Monday in Toronto. None of those victories had the same impact that beating Kentucky (17-6, 8-2) would have for Florida, which hasnt beaten the Wildcats in more than two years. Thats the past, Gators guard Kenny Boynton said. We lost five straight. Its time for us to start a new trend. Hopefully we go from here, win tomorrow, and we make it five straight. We just have to come out and play. Kentucky struggled earlier in the season, losing home games to Baylor and Texas A&M while coach John Caliparis four talented freshmen found their footing. The Wildcats have been much better recently, winning five in a row and seven of eight. UK is the only team in the country to score 70 or more points in eight of its past nine games. Still, Calipari is wary of facing Florida. Youve got a top 5 team on the road, they play well in their building, itll be a hard game for us to win, Calipari said. Lets put it this way: Last year, they were an Elite Eight team that shouldve been in the Final Four, one game short of that, and theyve got everybody back. And college basketball isnt what it was a year ago, so thats how good a challenge, how big a challenge and how good a team they are. And the Wildcats arent giving Florida much credit for winning SEC games by an average of 22.6 points. I couldnt care less about who they beat by 30 and 20 points, because were not the team that they beat by 30 and 20, guard Archie Goodwin said. Were another different team and if we let something like that intimidate us, then we wont be that confident in ourselves and be able to do the things we do. Kentucky should have an advantage in the paint, with 6-foot10 shot-blocker Nerlens Noel and 6-foot-7 forward Alex Poythress in the starting lineup and 7-foot Willie Cauley-Stein and 6-10 forward Kyle Wiltjer coming off the bench. The Gators, meanwhile, lost their best frontcourt defender last week when Will Yeguete had arthroscopic knee surgery. His absence left coach Billy Donovan using a four-guard lineup and counting on starting big men Pat Young and Erik Murphy to stay out of foul trouble. I think its something were gonna have to deal with, Donovan said. Theyve got really, really good length across the front line. Theyve got a lot of different lineups they can play. Getting Willie Cauley-Stein, then you add Wiltjer and Poythress and Noel, theres a lot of length up there. Our hand is what it is in terms of our frontcourt. We collectively have gotta do a good job as a group. Ive always been a big believer that its not one guys responsibility to take care of another guy, but weve got to do it as a team. We will need to continue to do a good job there as a team. Despite the disparity in the front court, both teams expect guard play to be the key. Florida has been at its best when Wilbekin and Boynton share the basketball and create open looks for their fellow 3point shooters. Kentucky, meanwhile, has been vulnerable when turning the ball over. We all know that and our guards know that, Calipari said. This is the challenge. You cant make excuses, you cant cop out, here it is and lets show what we are. Our teams getting better, our guards are getting better, our bigs are getting better, were getting better as a team, being more efficient.B2TUESDAY, FEBRUARY12, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Maple Leafs surge past Flyers 5-2 Associated PressTORONTO Colton Orr and Matt Frattin scored goals 28 seconds apart in the second period and the Toronto Maple Leafs earned a 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE club and all the hires he has made, firstyear manager Bo Porter said. This year (the uniform change) kind of sets the tone because they visually see things have changed. And when you realize that things have changed, you first realize that theyre never going to be the same. Also hoping for a clean start, Bartolo Colon is back with the Oakland Athletics after serving a 50-game suspension for a positive testosterone test. He had little to say crossing a damp practice field in Phoenix after a 90-minute exam, but hes excited to be with a team that won the AL West in thrilling fashion last year, rallying over the final 10 games to grab the title from the Texas Rangers. Manager Bob Melvin isnt worried about Colon getting right back in the flow with his teammates. He fit in very well here before, and I see that being the same case, Melvin said. He knows most of these guys and they all liked him very much and got along with them all and actually was a nice little resource for our younger starters. So, I dont see any problems there. As his teammates reported to Cardinals camp in Jupiter, Fla., Chris Carpenter told media in St. Louis he hes not ruling out pitching again even this season. Last week, the Cardinals said the 37year-old former ace almost certainly wont pitch in 2013 and that his career is probably over after a recurrence of a nerve injury that cost him most of last season. Maybe I dont ever want it to end, said Carpenter, the 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner. I dont think Ill ever retire, to be honest with you. Ill never say that word. There might always be hope. Maybe like when Im 48 I can come back and pitch some more. In Scottsdale, Ariz., Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson greeted his team with a new determination one that could be mimicked all around the league. Im just determined, he said. I can just say that 81-81 (last season) does not sound good to me at all, and then I took it very personally, and I take responsibility for it. Added Gibson: In 2011, we overachieved. In 2012, we underachieved. We want to overachieve again. That is my expectation for this team. Little by little we may take some lumps this year, but its a young team with a bright future in the long run. Were building a program and, as my father would say, Rome wasnt built in a day, he said. Crystal Rivers No. 1 seed Matt Allen lost in two straight sets to Oak Hills Logan Blazer 6-0, 6-1. Allen took over the top spot from graduating Pirate Brandon Papp, who was a finalist for All-Chronicle Player of the Year. The Pirate team also suffered the loss of last years No. 2 seed, senior Travis Swanson, to a shoulder injury accrued during the soccer season. Swanson is not expected to recover in time to participate this season. Ryan Johnson fared similarly to Allen in the No. 2 singles match against Aman Kabeer, who took home the match 6-1, 6-0 for the Eagles. The No. 3 singles match went in favor of Oak Halls Nick Springer over Crystal Rivers Matt White in a straight 6-0, 6-0 shutout. The Nos.4 and 5 matches went to the Eagles Brandon Cooke (shutting out Crystal Rivers Devin Reed 6-0, 6-0) and Nash Dean (over Eddie Castelli 6-4, 6-3, who put up the best fight for the Pirates). The doubles matches were played as pro sets, and the visiting Eagles took both of them in decisive measures as well. Oak Hills Blazer and Kabeer blanked Crystal Rivers Allen and White 8-0 in the No. 1 doubles match, while Springer and Marcus Milani nearly shut out Crystal Rivers Johnson and Reed 8-1 in the Eagles No. 2 doubles match. to find some good chemistry. They found it with No. 4 Noah McGuiness, who took home an 8-3 win, sealing the deal for the Canes. In doubles, Citrus again found itself walking around with the broom, as No. 1 Everett and Pospich and No. 2 Hayes and McGuiness, walked away with 8-0 wins. Centrals lone win came in the No. 5 seed, in which Justin Battle defeated Citrus Nathan Meeks 8-3. Happy with the win, Martone hopes the momentum will carry on to bigger matches in the coming weeks, including Citrus next district matchup, against rival Lecanto. We knew coming into this one that Central was going to be a little bit down, he said. But well take it from here. We learned from our mistakes last Friday, and our seniors are starting to step up now, so hopefully well just carry on. understand were not dominant. Were looking for kids to compete and have a will to win. Sophomore pitcher Derrick Rogers really stepped it up against Springstead in the preseason tournament, and junior Kameron Pennington had a great outing against Lecanto. Junior pitcher Miller Henderson has really stepped up as well, and weve been trying to identify two more guys for the varsity pitching staff. Senior second baseman Michael Kidd and catcher Mason Pateracki are the most experienced returning varsity players, and are joined by a host of freshmen and former JV standouts, including junior pitcher and infielder Casey Purnell, freshman shortstop Zach Pattison and freshman right fielder Shaun Frasier. With perennial 5A-7 powers Hernando and Eustis and reigning champ Tavares looming, Stack expects another tough run in the district. Ours is one of the toughest 5A districts in the state, with those teams, he said. While Lecanto didnt lose as many players as the countys other programs, the loss of left-handed ace Sheldon Baxter, a 2011 Chronicle Player of the Year, is enough to knock any team off its footing. The Panthers also lost their starting catcher, shortstop and center fielder. Its hard when you lose pretty much everybody up the middle, which is what you build your team around, third-year Panthers coach Dave Logue said. I think we have a pretty solid group coming back. Theyre going to be really young, with really only two seniors starting in the field for us. Its the same every year at Lecanto; weve got to grind it out. We walked 12 guys in our two preseason games, and were still trying to figure the pitching out. Logue likes his defenses prospects up the middle and its experience at the corners, anchored by junior third baseman and pitcher Levi OSteen. Freshman Alex Delgado is slated to start at catcher. Hes going to have some growing pains, but hes been making some strides for us and hell be pretty seasoned by the end of the year, Logue said. Logue said his outfield and infield will include a lot of interchangeable parts. The kids will need to be flexible, but thats how it goes now. Every night therell be new faces in different spots. Offensively, Logue said his group is a work in progress. I think well move the ball around at the plate, but our guys need more confidence, he said. Well have some speed, but not as much as last year. These kids have shown flashes of potential, but its just how hard theyre going to work and handle themselves and respond to pressure. Seven Rivers joins the countys youth movement with a new coach as well, with head basketball coach Jim Ervin taking over the baseball team. Ervin counts his experience on the court with many of his players as an asset. The relationships with the kids as a coach (are) as important as anything, and I think thats probably going to be my biggest strength coming in, Ervin said. Were going to know what to expect out of each other. Ive got some great help from my assistant coaches as well, whove helped with the transition from basketball. Ervin especially likes his teams infield defense and speed, and is excited about three young newcomers, led by eightgrader Parker Pillsbury, who will join sophomore Cory Weiand and junior Adam Gage to comprise the core of what Ervin considers a strong pitching staff. He may be the best player on our team, hes that talented, Ervin said of Pillsbury, who also brings power to the Warrior order. Hes got four pitches and can put it where you tell him. Seven Rivers will roll out three lefthanded pitchers and four lefties at the plate. Ervin said his teams youth in the outfield is a potential weakness, and predicts it will take two to three weeks for basketball players such as Gage, Weiand, senior second baseman John Iwaniec and senior catcher Lance Mosher to get their arms in shape.Citrus HurricanesCoach: Brady Bogart, third year Last years record: 19-11, District 6A-6 champions, lost in regional final Key returners: Kyle Tobin, senior, IF/OF; Cody Bogart, junior, C/UTL; Brooks Brasher, sophomore, OF/RHP; Tyler Beagan, senior, INF/RHP Key newcomers: Austin Bogart, freshman, OF/LHP; Chad Dawson, junior, 3B/OF/RHP; Ben Wright, junior, IF/RHP; Alex Atkinson, sophomore, IF/RHP; Wesley Bradshaw, sophomore, C/1B; Robert Wilkinson, sophomore, IF/RHP Key losses: Ryan Labrador, IF/P; John Smith, OF; Mark Pullen, P/OF; Hayden Kelly, 1B; Pat Martin P/IF; Cameron Copas, C; Eric Nelson, PCrystal River PiratesCoach: Bobby Stack, fifth year Last years record: 17-9, lost in District 5A-7 semifinal Key returners: Michael Kidd, senior, 2B; Mason Pateracki, junior, C/P; Garrett Lofley, junior, OF; Jordan Humphreys, sophomore, P; Austin Wiles, junior, OF/P Key newcomers: Derrick Rogers, sophomore, P/1B; Casey Purnell, junior, P/3B/C; Kameron Pennington, junior, P/3B; Shaun Frasier, freshman, RF; Zach Pattison, freshman, SS; Miller Henderson, junior, P Key losses: Tyler Humphreys, P/IF/OF; Donnie Dewees, OF/P; Weston Pope, SS/P; Josh Howell, IB/P; Aaron Bertine, DH; Brandon Brooks, OFLecanto PanthersCoach: Dave Logue, third year Last years record: 16-11, District 6A-6 runner-up, lost in regional quarterfinal Key returners: Levi OSteen, junior, P/3B/UTL; Jimmy Mooney, junior, OF; Nathan Hines, junior, IF; Joey Spell, senior, IF/P; Scott Stearns, senior, P/OF Key newcomers: Jacob Schenck, junior, IF/DH/UTL; Alex Delgado, freshman, C/P; Hunter Macaluso, sophomore, IF; Caleb Southey, sophomore, OF Key losses: Sheldon Baxter, P/OF; Skylar Summers, CF; Gary Levengood, C; Jacob Simms, SSSeven Rivers Christian WarriorsCoach: Jim Ervin, first year Last years record: 4-9, District 2A-4 runnerup, lost regional quarterfinal Key returners: Cory Weiand, sophomore, P/1B/OF; Lance Mosher, senior, C; Adam Gage, junior, P/3B; John Iwaniec, senior, 2B Key newcomers: Parker Pillsbury, eighth grade, P/1B; Garret Griggs, seventh grade, SS; Coy Phillips, seventh grade, CF/P Key losses: Josh Downey; Lucas Ebert; Sam Jones; Austin Johnson BASEBALLContinued from Page B1 CITRUSContinued from Page B1 TENNISContinued from Page B1 TRAININGContinued from Page B1 On the AIRWAVES TODAYS SPORTS MENS COLLEGE BASKETBALL 7 p.m. (ESPN) Kentucky at Florida 7 p.m. (ESPN2) Seton Hall at Rutgers 9 p.m. (ESPN) Michigan at Michigan State NBA BASKETBALL 7:30 p.m. (SUN) Portland Trail Blazers at Miami Heat DOG SHOW 8 p.m. (USA) Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show 137th Closing Night NHL HOCKEY 7:30 p.m. (SUN) Montreal Canadiens at Tampa Bay Lightning 7:30 p.m. (FSNFL) Washington Capitals at Florida Panthers 7:30 p.m. (NBCSPT) New York Rangers at Boston Bruins SOCCER 2:30 p.m. (FSNFL) UEFA Champions League Soccer Round of 16 Valencia CF vs Paris Saint-Germain TENNIS 10 a.m. (SUN) Tennis Champions Series: Atlanta.

Ted Nugent invited to State of the UnionWASHINGTON A Republican congressman says hes invited rocker Ted Nugent, who has referred to President Barack Obamas administration as evil and America-hating, to the State of the Union address. Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas said Monday on his website that Nugent will be his guest for the presidents speech Tuesday night. Stockman has talked of impeaching Obama over his gun control proposals. In a speech to the National Rifle Association during the 2012 campaign, Nugent said that if Obama were reelected, the longtime guncontrol opponent would either be dead or in jail. Nugents remarks led to meetings with representatives of the Secret Service.Randy Travis performs at ex-SEALs memorialDALLAS Country music star Randy Travis has performed at the memorial service for slain ex-Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. Travis told the thousands gathered at Cowboys Stadium on Monday that he was glad to be there, adding that he never met Kyle, but wished he had. Travis then began playing his guitar and singing Whisper My Name, which he said Kyles wife had told him was a meaningful song for the couple. Travis also sang Amazing Grace. Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield were shot and killed Feb. 2 at a North Texas gun range. Travis has had a string of run-ins with the law over the past year. Last month, he pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in August 2012, when police found him naked after crashing his car.Buckwild cast member Amin arrestedCHARLESTON, W.Va. A cast member of the MTV reality show Buckwild is facing a drug charge in West Virginia. Twenty-four-year-old Salwa Amin was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Shes being held at the Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond. State police say a multiagency task force arrested Amin and two others late Sunday at a home in Summersville after receiving a tip from an informant. Officers say they found oxycodone pills and heroin. Jail Administrative Sgt. Rick Drake says Amin doesnt want to talk to the media. MTV spokeswoman Candice Ashton says the network doesnt have any comment. Buckwild shows wild young West Virginians. It has drawn criticism for what some see as a negative portrayal of the states youth.

Records) One thing you can say about the Foals is that they always mix it up. Their first album, Antidotes, was loaded with heavy drumbeats, while Total Life Forever was more melancholic with beautiful lyrical prowess. The British band sticks to their wild formula on the new album, Holy Fire. It opens with Prelude, a 4-minute long instrumental that blasts into Inhaler, showcasing a rockier side to the band. There are howling guitars and shouting vocals, courtesy of Yannis Philippakis. My Number is addictive and could have jumped straight from a Talking Heads record. It is funky, uplifting and playful, and the lyrics illustrate optimism: I feel the love, feel the love. Melancholia isnt far away though, as the record swings back down with Bad Habit, which is a soulful lament. Im a bad habit, one you cannot shake, sings Philippakis. JAKEOCONNELL Associated PressVeronica Falls, Waiting for Something to Happen (Slumberland) The second full-length album from indie pops Veronica Falls is a tasteful guitar pop set, brighter in tone than their first. The London foursome takes a communal approach to singing their lovely melodies and there is nothing remotely discordant about the affair. The lyrics glorify the moments in between and aligned with the music play like anthems for the indecisive on Waiting for Something to Happen. These are songs about tiring of the people you hang out with, last conversations, the shortcomings of connectivity and the intersection of early adulthood. A few tracks take subtly winsome turns: the drizzle of classic British folk in the opener, the elliptical harmony on Shooting Star and the chorus on Falling Out blossoming into their catchiest moment to date. MIKESILVERMAN Associated PressVarious Artists, Wagner: Die Walkuere (Mariinsky) Theres no shortage of c lassic recordings of the second and most popular opera in Wagners four-part Ring cycle. This new version first installment of a projected complete Ring cycle from the historic Mariinsky Theatre in Russia is a worthy addition, thanks to the rapturous sweep that conductor Valery Gergiev achieves with the orchestra and to the deluxe cast, headed by todays reigning Bruennhilde, Swedish soprano Nina Stemme. She has the warmth as well as the steely strength to embody the warrior goddess who learns compassion at the cost of her immortality. Bass Rene Pape brings his trademark silken smoothness to the role of Wotan, and if one or two high notes sound effortful, he more than compensates with his deeply felt interpretation as an unusually brooding and introspective god.

The home was firebombed early Sunday morning, leaving one dead and several people injured. Review: Autopsy a grimlook at Motor City Associated PressDetroit: An American Autopsy (Penguin Press) by Charlie LeDuffDetroit has long been the poster child for urban blight, a city that gives rise to images of crack houses, senseless killings, burnt-out buildings, civic corruption, high unemployment and flirtations with municipal bankruptcy. Charlie LeDuff, who grew up in Detroit and made his mark as a Pulitzer Prize winner for The New York Times, later returned home to immerse himself in his citys despair. His book, based in part on his reporting for The Detroit News, captures the sights, sounds and smells of a crumbling, once-proud metropolis. The author rubs shoulders with the citys best and worst elements, arsonists who burn buildings for entertainment and firefighters struggling to protect innocent lives. Fire is cheaper than a movie, one firefighter explains, noting that a can of gas is $3.50 and a movie is $8, and there arent any movie theaters left in Detroit. To LeDuff, the Detroit firefighter is the man holding Neros fiddle. Tragedy strikes when a firefighter who befriends the author is killed when the roof collapses on an abandoned bungalow while he battles an arson fire. Woven into these episodes is a family memoir that traces LeDuffs background and recounts how the pathologies destroying Detroit have also taken a personal toll. The author and his family are not immune. It provides no road map toward redemption, but Detroit is a grim portrayal of the plight of one American city and sounds an alarm for others.

Rehospitalization No one fix can slow readmission epidemicLAURANNEERGAARD AP medical writer WASHINGTONMore than 1 million Americans wind up back in the hospital only weeks after they left for reasons that could have been prevented a revolving door that for years has seemed impossible to slow. Now Medicare has begun punishing hospitals with hefty fines if they have too many readmissions, and a top official says signs of improvement are beginning to emerge. Were at a very promising moment, Medicare deputy administrator Jonathan Blum told The Associated Press. Nearly 1 in 5 Medicare patients is hospitalized again within a month of going home, and many of those return trips could have been avoided. But readmissions can happen at any age, not just with the over-65 crowd who are counted most closely. Where you live makes a difference, according to new research that shows how much room for improvement there really is. In parts of Utah, your chances of being rehospitalized are much lower than in areas of New York or New Jersey, says a report being released this week from the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care. The AP teamed with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to explore, through the eyes of patients, the myriad roadblocks to recovery that make it so difficult to trim unneeded readmissions. The hurdles start as patients walk out the door. Scared to go home, is what Eric Davis, 51, remembers most as he left a Washington hospital, newly diagnosed with a dangerous lung disease. His instructions: stop smoking. He didnt know how to use his inhale or if it was safe to exercise, until a second hospitalization weeks later. There is no single solution. But whats clear is that hospitals will have to reach well outside their own walls if theyre to make a dent in readmissions. Otherwise a slew of at-home difficulties confusion about what pills to take, no ride to the drugstore to fill prescriptions, not being able to get a posthospital check-up in time to spot complications will keep sending people back. This is a team sport, says readmissions expert Dr. Eric Coleman of the University of Colorado in Denver. It requires true community-wide engagement. Pushed by those Medicare penalties, hospitals are getting the message. Its made hospitals go, Oh my gosh, just because theyre outside my door doesnt mean Im done, said nurse practitioner Jayne Mitchell of Oregon Health & Science University, who heads a new program to reduce readmissions of patients with heart failure. In a pilot test, her hospital is sending special telemedicine monitors home with certain high-risk patients so that nurses can make a quick daily check of how these patients are faring in that first critical month. Patients dont have to be powerless, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation this week begins an effort called Care About Your Care, which offers consumers tips to guard against unnecessary readmissions. Everyone has to understand their role in improving the quality of care, including families, said Dr. Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, the foundations president. This could be a time when we turn the corner. Rehospitalizations are miserable for patients, and a huge cost more than $17 billion a year in avoidable Medicare bills alone for a nation struggling with the price of health care. Make no mistake, not all readmissions are preventable. But many are, if patients are given the right information and outpatient support. The new Dartmouth Atlas evaluated Medicare records for 2008 to 2010, the latest publicly available data, to check progress just before Medicare cracked down. In October, the government began fining more than 2,000 hospitals where too many patients with heart failure, pneumonia or a heart attack had to be readmitted in recent years. Change is hard and comes slowly, said Dartmouths Dr. David Goodman, who led the work. Of seniors hospitalized for nonsurgical reasons, 15.9 percent were readmitted within a month in 2010, barely budging from 16.2 percent in 2008. Surgery readmissions arent quite as frequent 12.4 percent in 2010, compared with 12.7 percent in 2008. Thats probably because the surgeon tends to provide some follow-up care.HEALTH& LIFE Despite evidence that earlier diagnosis and improved treatment increases survival, the rate of people seeking preventive cancer screening has fallen in the United States in the past 10 years. And a lot of the blame for this falls at the feet of major cancer organizations and our government agencies for failing to agree about screening guidelines. Another reason for the drop is the reductions in workers with insurance to cover the cost of screening. Researchers write about their NIH-funded study in a paper published Dec. 27 in the online open-access journal Cancer screening rates fall See BENNETT/ Page C4 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Excess red blood cells hurt Isaw Mr. Smith almost two years ago. He was admitted at Citrus Memorial hospital for a clot in his leg. He was 63 years old and fairly healthy at that time. I was consulted to do further workup. When he came for follow-up in my office, his RBC (red blood cell) count as measured in CBC by hemoglobin and hematocrit were mildly elevated. I ordered a blood test called the JAK-2 gene test. It was positive. He also had low erythropoietin level. This is diagnostic of a bone marrow problem You have probably heard of general internist, general practice doctors and maybe even a gerontologist (one who specializes in the care of the older patient). Someday, there will be a full-fledged specialty called geriatric otolaryngology the specialty of caring for the ear, nose and throat problems of the older patient. At the time of this dictation, there are probably 7,000 general practices or internists who specialize in geriatric medicine, but probably only a handful of ear, nose and throat doctors who focus on this problem. This is certainly not enough to take care of the 80 million baby boomers who will be turning 65 or older through the next few years. Twenty or 30 years ago, there were a few ear, nose and throat doctors who decided this was an up-andcoming specialty. As a result of their pioneer work and interest in this field, young ENT residents are getting more training Geriatric otolaryngologist Food manufacturers often present products in a way that makes them appear healthy and good for you, even when they are not. You can find the truth on the Nutrition and Facts label required by the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the packaging of all processed foods. Learning to read and interpret these labels will make you a smarter shopper and put you in control of your food choices. The top section of the label tells you the serving size and number of servings per container, followed by the number of calories per serving. The serving size is important, because it tells you how many calories you are consuming. For example, if a candy bar wrapper tells you the candy bar contains 240 calories per serving, and there are two servings in the package, you will be consuming 440 calories if you eat the whole candy bar.

You may be asking, How do I WOW them and feel comfortable, be beautiful and myself? Simple! First of all you should relax and understand that being you is beautiful. Sometimes we experience many social circles being wrapped up in who is wearing what and who has the best hair and blah, blah, blah. Life isnt about other people, it is about YOU and what makes you feel good. We all need a little jazzy makeover from time to time, so relax and enjoy these few tips for your jazzy new look. Always look inward instead of outward and enjoy yourself. Beauty comes from within so that is where we have to start. Soul-search, read, meditate and reach to your innermost being. We all need that time to ourselves to sort things out and get to know ourselves. In doing this, you will carry a contagious smile displaying your innermost beauty. Hair Your hairstyle is very important and can make or break your mood. Analyze your facial structure and see if your hair shape complements your bone structure. Feel your hair lengths and see if your hair was designed with the round of your head, if it has enough texture, if you have blobs of thick hair or if the lengths are even. Your design must complement your bone structure and the color must complement your skin tone. Remember that mature skin usually looks better with a little lighter color but not too light as it will wash you out. Keep some richness to complement your skin tone and eyes. Choose a different style for this date to give your date a double-take moment. If you always wear your hair back, go forward, change the part, and blow dry upside down for volume. If you go up with the hair, remember to complement it with hair accessories and bling. Skin care With the drier winter weather, you may be experiencing tight, dry skin. Search for shea butter, which is in many anti-aging skin care lines. Stick to the organic products, as the all-natural is better for your skin and feels great. Give yourself a facial the night before your date so that you skin will be polished and radiant. Attire Wear a color that makes your skin glow. For a romantic look, choose soft fabrics that flow or a silky sweater that feels cuddly. Dresses are nice if the weather permits. Know if you will be dancing so that you can wear appropriate shoes. Makeup Of course, mineral makeup is the best for coverage. Change your colors for this date. Apply a little more coverage with brighter, richer tones. If you normally wear nude lip color, wear a deep mauve or brighter wine color. This will give you a fresh new look. Remember to complement the colors in your garment. Choose two areas of the face to pop, like eyes and lips with minimal blush, or cheeks and eyes with pale lips. Gift Since it is Valentines Day, bring your date a gift. Choose a unique gift that you know they will enjoy. Make it personal and special. Enjoy your special date and your jazzy makeover. Life is what we make of it, so have fun and enjoy!Yai Yai has 20 years of international hairdressing experience and has been a Citrus County business owner since 1996.

ToHEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, FEBRUARY12, 2013 C3 Skin patch approved to treat migraine headaches Q:I heard about a skin patch for treating migraine headaches. What can you tell me about it? A: The FDA recently (2013) approved Zecuity (sumatriptan iontophoretic transdermal system (TDS)) for the acute treatment of migraine with or without aura in adults. It is the first migraine patch approved for the acute treatment of migraine headache pain. The active ingredient in Zecuity is sumatriptan, which has been available for many years in oral tablets, injection, and as a nasal spray. Sumatriptan works by constricting (narrowing) specific arteries in the brain, which leads to relief of migraine headache. Zecuity is a single-use, battery-powered skin patch applied to the upper arm or thigh that delivers sumatriptan through the skin and provides relief of both migraine headache pain and migrainerelated nausea. The most common side effects of Zecuity are application site pain, tingling, itching, warmth, and discomfort. However, it also comes with several contraindications, warnings and precautions, which are outlined in its Patient Labeling Information. Approximately 31 million Americans have migraine headaches that can be debilitating or disabling. These headaches occur more frequently on one side of the head, are pulsating or throbbing and are accompanied by nausea or vomiting in most people. Migraines may also be associated with sensitivity to light or sound and can be aggravated by routine physical activity, such as climbing stairs. Certain foods and beverages may also bring on or trigger a migraine attack in certain people. Some of these dietary triggers are: Alcoholic drinks. Coffee, tea, cola. Aged cheese. Chocolate. Monosodium glutamate (MSG). Smoked fish. Nuts. Pickled foods. The exact cause of migraine headaches is not known, but research shows that a chemical known as serotonin is the main culprit. This chemical, which is found in the brain, can cause blood vessels to narrow or constrict and stimulate pain receptors. Levels of serotonin are unusually high just before a migraine and unusually low during the migraine attack. Many people who suffer from migraine have a family history of this problem and it is three times more common in women than in men. Migraine usually begins when a person is in their late teens or early adulthood and attacks can increase or decrease during menstruation, pregnancy and menopause. Some people can even feel when a migraine is coming (aura). If untreated, most migraine headaches can last at least four hours and up to 72 hours. Richard P.

In the U.S., although the number of cancer survivors has gone up as a result of improved diagnosis and treatment, cancer is still one of the most prominent chronic diseases that in 2011 killed more than 570,000 people. Alongside a fall in rates of advanced cancer diagnoses in the U.S. in the past 10 years has been an increase in the number of cancer survivors returning to work. Research suggests that almost 12 million people are alive and well in this country who have survived cancer. And in these patients, continued surveillance is critical. We know that keeping to a cancer screening schedule could be an important factor as this helps detect secondary tumors early, and reduces potentially limiting side effects. However, research also reveals that although cancer survivors tend to show much higher rates of screening adherence, their numbers, too, have started falling off in the past three years, as well. There is a great need for increased cancer prevention efforts in the US, especially for screening, as it is considered one of the most important preventive behaviors, and helps decrease the burden of this disease on society in terms of quality of life, the number of lives lost, and insurance costs. Yet the major agencies in this country dont seem to be able to agree on anything. Despite the overwhelming proof that screening leads to early detection and increased cure rates, research has shown that adherence rates for cancer screenings have generally declined with severe implications for the health outlook of our society. In January 2012, a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) showed that the percentage of people screened for cancer in the U.S. remains below national targets for 2020, with rates lower among Asian and Hispanic Americans than other groups. In this study, researchers examined cancer screening adherence rates of the general public and cancer survivors, and compared them to government-recommended Healthy People screening goals. They looked at screening rates for colorectal, prostate, breast and cervical cancers. Not only did they compare rates between the general population and cancer survivors, but they also looked at rates among workers. The data on screening rates came from National Health Interview Surveys conducted between 1997 and 2010 that in total covered nearly 174,400 people age 18 and older. These annual surveys randomly sample the U.S. population by household, and collect demographic and health information, including cancer history and cancer-related health behaviors such as cancer screening. When the researchers analyzed the data, they found that the general population did not meet the governments Healthy People screening goals for any type of cancer apart from colorectal cancer. For this cancer, 54 percent of the general population underwent screening: the governments 2010 goal is 50 percent. But among cancer survivors, who have a higher risk for cancer, the pattern was quite different. Their screening rates, for all types of cancer except cervical (this fell to 78 percent over the past 10 years), exceeded the government goals. However, the researchers also noticed a decline in the number of cancer survivors who went for cancer screening in the last three years. Researchers also found that among survivors, white collar workers on the whole had higher cancer screening rates than blue collar workers. Researchers speculate that ongoing disputes over screening guidelines among bodies like the United States Preventive Services Task Force, American Cancer Society and others, plus reductions in rates of workers covered by insurance that have occurred in the past decade, may lie behind the trend. Nonetheless, I hope all of my readers appreciate the importance of screening, early detection, and successful treatment, a formula that will lead to fewer deaths and more cancer survivors in the years to come.Dr. C.

BENNETTContinued from Page C1 called polycythemia rubra vera. It is a disorder of the bone marrow. It mainly causes too much production of red blood cells, although the numbers of white blood cells and platelets are also increased. It is a rare disease that occurs more often in men than women, and is rare in patients younger than 40. In polycythemia vera, patients produce an excessive number of otherwise normal red blood cells, raising blood volume and viscosity which, in turn, creates a range of clinical problems. These include increased rates of major thrombotic events, such as a clot in the leg or DVT, as happened in my patient. It also increases the risk of stroke. The condition can also progress to leukemia or myelofibrosis (scar in bone marrow). The treatment includes periodic phlebotomy to bring down the hematocrit to less than 45. Some patients also need a medication called Hydroxyurea. An interesting research was reported at the American Society of Hematologys annual meeting. The findings were published simultaneously online in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study consists of 365 patients who were prospectively randomized to keep either hematocrit less than 45 in one group or between 45 and 50 in another group. At study entry, phlebotomy was employed in about two-thirds of patients in both treatment arms, and about half received hydroxyurea, also with no difference between groups. With median follow-up of 31 months, five patients in the low-hematocrit group and 18 in the high-hematocrit arm had death or major thrombotic (clotting) event. Researchers calculated incidence rates for the major clotting outcome of 1.1 per 100 patient-years for the low-hematocrit group versus 4.4 per 100 patient-years with the higher target. In other words, if we keep hematocrit below 45, it cuts down major clotting events by one fourth. Dr. Spivak, however, wished for more detailed analyses of possible gender differences. Women normally have a lower redcell mass and hematocrit than men, and women with polycythemia vera are at risk for intra-abdominal venous thrombosis (clot in major vein in the abdomen) with an apparently normal hematocrit, he wrote in the editorial. Therefore, the hematocrit target described by Marchioli et al. is adequate for men but inadequate for women, who on the basis of other studies should have a target hematocrit of less than 42%. My patient is on periodic phlebotomy and is doing well.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society.

This is particularly true if ones practice is in a retirement area, like Florida. It would make sense that a specialist who is treating an 80or 90-year-old should be well versed on what goes wrong with 80or 90-year-old patients, ENT and otherwise. Just as there are problems and diseases that are common to pediatric patients, there are some that are very common to older folks, and the ENT doctor needs to incorporate this thinking. Geriatric-related problems that the ENT doctor will typically see include the most common issue of hearing and hearing loss issues, but also we see a great deal of balance disorders and dizziness. Impairment of sense of smell and taste is commonly seen as well as swallowing disorders that are related to many different causes, including stroke. Diseases and problems in the older patient are quite challenging for the primary care doctors and equally, if not more complicated for specialists who are trying to focus on a particular disease process such as cancer in the head and neck area while trying to balance the problems of what we call co-morbidities. Co-morbidities are problems that include obesity, blood pressure problems, diabetes, heart disease, dementia, just to name a few. They can complicate the medical and surgical treatment of the primary problem which the ear, nose and throat doctor is seeing the patient for. To treat the whole patient, the ENT doctor must understand the unique qualities and problems associated with the older ear, nose and throat patient, but also must work in partnership with the primary care physicians who are much more familiar with the patient and together come up with the best treatment course for the patient, taking in to account not only longevity but quality of life. I am thankful for the pioneers of 20 or 30 years ago who thought about the importance of geriatric otolaryngology. As a result of their efforts and continuing strides in training programs and medical schools, we are able to utilize the disseminated information and knowledge that will help us treat the older ENT patient.

snack makes up one-fifth to one-third of the 1,500 to 2,000 calories you need for the entire day 40 calories is low, 100 calories is moderate and 400 calories is high. The next section of the label tells you how many of those calories come from fat. Experts recommend a diet in which about 20 percent or less of the calories are from fat. In other words, for every 100 total calories you consume, only 20 should be calories from fat. Of course, some food items, like salad dressings, naturally have a high fat content. Be aware of how much you are consuming, and factor those calories into your total fat intake for the day. Next, the label tells you what type of fat you are consuming. Saturated fats are found in foods of animal origin and are converted to cholesterol by the liver. Polyunsaturated fats are generally from plant sources, and are healthier. Vegetable oils such as corn, soybean, safflower and sunflower oil, are high in polyunsaturated fats. Monounsaturated fats come from plants and include olive oil, canola oil and peanut oil. This section of the label also lists cholesterol content and sodium content. Hydrogen atoms are sometimes added to unsaturated fats through a process called hydrogenation to stabilize them and make them solid at room temperature. Transfat formed during the process of hydrogenation has been shown to increase the risk of heart disease. Transfats are often used in commercial baked goods. Since the FDA began requiring transfats to be listed on food labels in 2003, many manufacturers have removed them from their products. However, FDA guidelines allow manufacturers to list transfat if the product contains less than 0.5 grams of transfat. That means you could still consume a significant amount of transfat if you eat several servings. Look for the words partially hydrogenated oils in the ingredients list. The Percent Daily Value (%DV) down the right side of the label tells you what percentage of the recommended daily amount of fat, dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron are contained in a single portion. For any nutrient, 5 percent is considered low and 20 percent is high. Ingredients are listed in order according to the amount of that ingredient in the food. Be wary of foods that list added sugars (corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit juice concentrate, maltose, dextrose, sucrose, honey, maple syrup) among the first ingredients on the label. You can find these by looking at the list of ingredients of a food that advertises itself as Lite or No Sugar Added contains artificial sweeteners or is natural and unsweetened. In addition to the Nutrition Facts label, some foods include claims about nutritional content in their product levels. These terms are strictly defined by the FDA: fat free (less than 0.5 grams of fat), low fat (3 grams of fat or less), high fiber (5 grams or more of fiber), calorie free (less than 5 calories), sugar free (less than 0.5 grams of sugar) and so on. The meanings of other terms, such as organic, natural and energy, are not clearly regulated. Some products are marked with the logos of independent certifying agencies that verify the product meets certain standards. You can find nutritional information about fresh foods like meat, vegetables, and fruit in a calorie guide or on a health website. Always look at the ingredients on the package to see what you are actually consuming. There is a big difference between a sugary fruit drink and 100 percent fruit juice. A low-fat food can still contain large amounts of cholesterol. A whole-grain, highfiber breakfast cereal can be loaded with extra calories from fat and sugar.

Q:In yesterdays (Feb. 5) article, you mentioned that you use a standard toothbrush in the morning and a Sonicare toothbrush in the evening. My husband and I have used Sonicare toothbrushes for years (in fact, were each on our second one); however, we use this product both in the morning and at night. Could you please explain why you choose to use both types of toothbrushes on a regular basis? Thanks! A: This is a great question. What it really comes down to is tailoring a homecare regimen to each patient specifically. In this case, I am the patient and here is my reasoning. Like many people, I seem to have more time in the evening than in the morning to take care of my oral hygiene. Since this is the case and it is best to do your most thorough hygiene in the evening right before bed, I floss and brush with the Sonicare toothbrush at night. Incidentally, I do use the quadpacer that is incorporated in the brush. The quadpacer encourages 30 seconds be spent in each quadrant of the mouth, since it alerts you when each of the first three periods are complete and then turns off when the last, or forth, quadrant is done. I think this is a great tool for any age patient, because two minutes is a long time when doing something like brushing. I also happen to use prescription strength fluoride toothpaste with the Sonicare for two reasons. The prescription strength toothpaste has a significant ability to harden the tooth structure and decrease sensitivity. It also has no foaming agents that would cause me to gag. This is a super plus for me. There you have it. The nighttime should be the most thorough session: the Sonicare is a great brush to achieve an extremely clean mouth, the toothpaste I use has no foaming action ... no gagging! Flossing happens at night for the cleanest mouth to go to bed with, and it is all done when I have the extra time, at night. The morning regimen is simple. I brush to get the coating off of the teeth that can happen at night and for fresh breath. I use a toothpaste I like the flavor of in the morning since I put the fluoride on at night. As you remember from last week, I use an ultra-soft brush. In my opinion, this is the only brush to use. Anything stiffer can cause recession of the gums that I would prefer to not deal with. Please know this is the regimen that works best for me. My hygienists and I truly do recommend what we feel is the best for each patient, individually. It really can differ for each patient in a day. There are many rinses, toothpastes, medications and tools that can be of help to patients. I prefer to take the time to give each patient the least amount of work to get the best outcome. I have found through the years that keeping things simple is best. If too many things are recommended there is a higher likelihood that the patient will end up omitting one or two of them. If this were to happen it would hamper the goal of a thorough home care regimen. I hope this has answered your question. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

Recently, the Crystal River Lions Club hosted a Puppy Raisers presentation at the Depot. Lion Ron Van Gelderon, vice president of the Orange Blossom Lions Club, and District Chairman Lion Ron Landbeck spoke passionately about the amazing skills of service dogs. Dogs are amazing animals. The many services they provide include guide dogs, companion dogs, drugand bomb-sniffing, rescuing, therapy dogs, service dogs and paws for patriots. An average of 3,000 dogs graduate from the Southeastern Guide Dogs School annually, where each dog receives 26 training days. On an average, at least 23 dogs are considered to determine a match for a person visually or hearing impaired. The personality of the individual is a significant determining factor. They make a great deal of difference in a persons life. When guide dogs complete their training and they are unable to meet the standard requirements, they are considered for further training as therapy dogs. Therapy dogs lessen the trauma for children who are required to undergo courtroom sessions with their Guardian ad Litem volunteers. There is a vast difference between wanting and needing a dog. The legally blind are given top priority for a guide dog. Rescue dogs search and find Alzheimers patients who wander away from home. Bomband drug-sniffing dogs are vastly important to our law enforcement officials. Volunteers make it all happen. More than 600,000 volunteer hours are given annually at Southeastern Guide Dogs, where dogs receive 18 hours of training per day. Dogs have multiple sounds and senses and they average six to eight years of service to an individual. Afterward, the owner has the option to keep the dog, then the puppy raiser and finally a list of people on an adoption list are considered. Black labs and golden retrievers are best suited for training. At Southeastern Guide Dogs, there are currently 353 dogs. Throughout the state, there are 239 volunteer puppy raisers. Their dog Gabby literally stole the show as the intricate skills of a guide dog were demonstrated. When determining a match for a dog, personality, lifestyle and gender are important considerations. Lion Ron Van Gelderon, blind since 2005, praised his dog Murray, describing their daily routine of either a 16-minute, one-mile walk or a lengthy four-mile walk. There are 12 regional schools for training, including one in Scotland. With 265 Florida Lions Clubs in Florida, volunteering to spread the word that they will always be in the forefront for the visually and hearing impaired with the training of dogs to serve them, there is hope and genuine compassion alive and well. Please consider membership in a Lions Club in your neighborhood. Long may their We Serve motto reign.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community. Let her know about your groups upcoming activities by writing to P.O. Box 803, Crystal River, FL 34423.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY12, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Friedrich Schiller, a German poet, philosopher, historian and playwright who died in 1805, said, It is easy to give advice from a port of safety. That would also be easy for me to say. Some declarers, though, instead of working safely in port to make their contract, take risks on the high seas of bad distribution. In this example deal, South is in three notrump. West leads the heart eight (top of nothing), East wins with his king and shifts to the diamond queen. West correctly wins with his king and returns the 10, East overtaking with his jack. South ducks and wins the next diamond, West and dummy discarding hearts. How should South continue? Norths two-club rebid was New Minor Forcing, indicating at least game-invitational values and asking South to describe his hand further. Two no-trump denied three spades and four hearts. This auction kept dummys heart suit hidden momentarily, but resulted in the most damaging defense. Yesterday we saw that when North rebid a game-forcing three hearts, West led a club, the unbid suit. Then South took a safetyplay in spades (cash the ace, followed by low to dummys 10) to ensure his contract. Even now it looks as though dummys spades will provide the necessary tricks. However, a cautious declarer will cash his club winners first. Here he learns that West started with four hearts (presumably), two diamonds and two clubs. He seems marked with five spades. So declarer cashes his spade ace and plays a spade to dummys 10.

(WGN-A) 18 18 18 18 20ChrisChrisFunny Home VideosMotherMotherMotherMotherWGN News at NineFunny Home Videos Dear Annie: Twenty years ago, my wife had an affair with a coworker. It ended when he moved back to his home state 2,000 miles away. At the time, I asked my wife to go to counseling with me. We made it to one session before she pronounced our marriage healed. Sixteen months ago, out of the blue, this same guy contacted my wife via email, and they began communicating. I discovered they were planning to meet in Las Vegas. I begged her not to go, but she was convinced she loved him and had to know if they should be together. The month before her trip, I endured more pain than Ive ever experienced. I set up counseling sessions for us with separate therapists, arranged a meeting with our pastor and lost 20 pounds from the stress. In the end, this creep flaked out on their Vegas rendezvous, probably because he couldnt see himself leaving his children for her. She also was reluctant to leave our kids. However, the breakup crushed her, and she initially refused to work on our marriage. Finally, we went to a joint counseling session, but when the therapist made reference to her profound betrayal, that was that. My wife refuses to rehash what happened. Im worried that the only reason she is recommitting to our marriage is because the other man gave up on her. Things just dont feel the same. She insists shes done with this guy, but who really knows? Is it possible to move forward without dealing with the past? Torn Up in California Dear Torn: Maybe, but not if your wife is using your marriage as her rebound relationship in order to soothe her heartbreak. Thats a temporary com mit ment. Refusing to examine the reasons behind her vulnerability to the affair leaves open the possibility of repeating the betrayal and this is undoubtedly what most worries you. You cannot force your wife to work on this, so please get counseling for yourself, on your own. You need to learn what you can live with. Dear Annie: Nobody ever addresses how someones death affects the animals left behind. Dogs especially look forward to the return of their master each day with great anticipation. When my husband is away on vacation, our dogs wait at the door for hours and go through the same ritual each day until he returns. When a loved one dies, the pet has no comprehension that this person is not coming back. When one of our dogs has passed on, we always lovingly place them in an open box where the remaining animal can be alone with the deceased for at least a half-hour. That seems to help them understand and reach closure of some kind. Why cant we bring the animal to the funeral home or other appropriate setting and let the animal be with their friend one last time? Its the least we can do for our animal friends who give us unconditional love and companionship without asking for anything in return. Rocky Mount, Va. Dear Va.: Some funeral homes allow dogs as comfort animals for the bereaved. It is likely they would also permit an animal to attend a viewing before the service. It is certainly not an unreasonable request. Dear Annie: Dont Want a Contest feels his fiancees 13year-old son is jealous. Please tell him to back off. It is normal for a single mom and her son to have this sort of closeness, and the boy will grow out of it. My husband accepted my close relationship with my only child. My son would also sit in between us and want to snuggle in bed, but he came to accept my husband without resentment. My son died at age 15 from cancer. I never would have forgiven myself or my husband if I had missed out on one hug.
