MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Its one thing to learn the facts, the figures, the history, the details. Nancy Smith wants her students to think. She wants them to reason, to debate, to offer an opinion and back it up. Whether those students are in her Advanced Placement literature class at Citrus High School or students who struggle to keep up, Smith encourages them to embrace education rather than dread it. CHS junior Taylor Harrison gets the point. PATFAHERTY Staff writerWith the Crystal River nuclear plant retired and two old coal burners being phased out, Duke Energy will soon be looking for more local juice. And its first choice is natural gas, which has become the power industrys choice for meeting new electricity needs. Were going to need power in 2018, said Alex Glenn, president of Duke Energys operations in Florida. Our option is natural gas. He said it would be a 1,200megawatt combined-cycle nat ural gas plant similar to the Paul L. Bartow Power Plant. The Bartow plant, near St. Petersburg, was originally the site of an oil-fired steam plant. The 1,260megawatt natural gas plant took about 2.5 years to build. It is fed by a pipeline from Alabama running through the Gulf of Mexico. Duke Energy was one of the original developers of the pipeline. In 2018, we need to have the plant online, Glenn said, speaking with the ChronicleEditorial Board last week. We need to start the RFP (request for proposals) this year. The company will also look at purchasing replacement power in the marketplace. Glenn said the Public Service Commission would need to make its determination in 2014, with a timetable to start construction in 2015. Progress Energy Florida previously informed the PSC it planned to build a new 875megawatt natural gas plant in 2016 on an undisclosed location. Glenn said the company is reviewing a number of potential plant locations in several counties, including Citrus, and is considering both existing power plant sites and new sites. We have an obligation to select the most cost-effective site for our customers, Glenn said. Were really focusing on the best site from an overall cost perspective and ability to build it in our INSIDE FEBRUARY 18, 2013Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOL. 118 ISSUE 195 50 CITRUS COUNTYNASCAR: Danica Patrick wins Daytona pole /B1 LOCAL NEWS:Red CarpetCommunity members turn out to support fundraiser./Page A9www.chronicleonline.com WORLD NEWS:Papal prayerPope Benedict XVI blesses the faithful. /Page A10 OPINION: EDITORIAL, PAGE A8 We applaud the courage of Lecanto High School officials.

SIDIBE Staff writerIt was a harrowing three days for Dr. Jeff Wallis and his staff at Advanced Gastroenterology in Meadowcrest. The week before last, one of his staff members became a target of relentless phone calls from scam artists (presumably from overseas India, perhaps), initially on her personal phone. However, the calls began at the Crystal River-area office and escalated quickly both in tenor and quantity. Wallis estimated one day there were more than 100 calls, and the calls became threats and tied up all of the businesss lines. An exasperated Wallis contacted the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, See SCAM/ Page A4 Natural gas is Dukes best plan See DUKE/ Page A7 See FINEST/ Page A9 MORE HONORS Jamie Lewis is the district s 2013 SchoolRelated Employee of the Year./Page A3 Want to contribute? Become our fan @ facebook.com/citruscounty chronicle and leave your comment on our Question of the Week post. Our newest county commissioner Scott Adams is sure making noise at commission meetings. What do you think? Question of the Week Karl La Follette Spending must grind to a screeching halt! Reduce all purchase caps to $250. All purchases above $250 dollars should need written approval. So refreshing to hear reality from a business point of view from Scott. This is a crisis facing this county for years to come. EVERY PENNY OF TAX payer money is so precious now.This is a wake up call to any County Employee with the power to make purchases. You are under the watch full of Mr. Scott Adams. I feel blindsided of the outright ignorance of people spending above their means! Buffoons in a governmental position is a great analogy. I feel there needs to be more open town meetings to get some ideas flowing. There seems to be a backup in the plumbing of the county government. CJ Dixon The fact is the momentum of spending in our government, at all levels, must come down to the constraints of the times. Citrus has had a huge reality check from Duke. It is time to make some very hard budget decisions at the county level. Scotts frustration is understandable. Further this kind of open discussion is not harmful to businesses that are looking at Citrus. This shows that we are trying to deal with this situation and not with new revenue sources. New revenue sources is not the answer that attracts new businesses. I support the open discussion. That money is OUR money. Every government employee should safeguard the limited assets. All spending needs to be addressed. All spending should always be emergency or only when absolutely needed, not a penny more. Should have been that way before the Duke crisis. Gary Wilton Keep the pressure on them Scott,hang tuf,you will have more help in the next election,the citizens of Citrus Co. are getting sick of the good ole boys and their spending. YOU GO MAN!!!!!!! Editors note: Today we launch a new weekly feature using reader comments on current topics that have been posted on our Facebook page. Each day at noon, Chroniclereporter Nancy Kennedy (or someone else when shes unavailable) posts a question on Facebook and our followers post their comments. We will choose our favorite conversation of the week and reprint it Mondays in the Chronicle.

CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCitrus County will find out on Tuesday how much value it has with Hernando County in future transportation planning. Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the group that represents its countys interests to the Florida Department of Transportation, will hear from FDOT District 7 officials about possible benefits by merging its MPO with Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). If it gives us a better voice, why not? MPO Chairman Wayne Dukes told a Hernando Todayreporter recently. Dukes indicated Hernando County shares an interest with Citrus County in promoting the proposed extension of the Suncoast Parkway through to Red Level as it would become a major north-south route. Dukes also observed that the FDOT likely foresees smaller counties having more influence when competing for state funds by grouping together and clarifying transportation project goals, also known as thinking regionally. The TPO reached out to Hernandos MPO after studying surrounding counties and finding Hernando to be the best fit. The TPO made this move because it received a letter in November from FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad that it needed MPO status, a greater voice in regional transportation planning, as 2010 U.S. Census data designated Homosassa Springs, Beverly Hills and Citrus Springs as an urbanized area by population growth. However, rather than step up from a TPO to an MPO, Citrus County was urged by the state to join with an adjacent existing MPO to streamline the state structure. If a newly urbanized area is identified, a MPO must be designated to represent it; it should be a neighboring MPO, according to the FDOT. A challenge will lie in the number of seats and who sits in them on the merged MPO. Currently, Hernando County MPO has six voting members: five representing the county and one representing Brooksville. The TPO has seven members: two representing Inverness, two representing Crystal River and three representing the county. By proposed apportionment, the merged MPO would have 11 members, but Hernando County would have six of the seats with the same representatives as before the merger. Citrus, however, would be reduced to five seats: three representing Citrus County, one representing Inverness and one representing Crystal River. This is because Hernando County represents 55 percent of the combined population, while Citrus share is 45 percent. Hernandos population is 172,778 and Citrus is 141,236. According to FDOTs schedule, apportionment should be adopted by Feb. 26. The transmittal of the plan with resolutions should take place by April 1 for the governor to reapportion the MPO, thereby approving the merger.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff writer LECANTO When Rock Crusher Elementary Schools doors first opened 22 years ago, Jamie Lewis was there to welcome students. At that time she was guidance secretary and had already been with the school district for 10 years at Lecanto Primary School. Lewis is one of those people who volunteers when the principal needs help, and thats how she found herself as data secretary this year while keeping her guidance duties. Shes a hard worker and will do whatever is necessary, Rock Crusher Principal John Weed said. Lewis is also a little shy. So she was stunned when chosen the Citrus County School Districts 2013 School-Related Employee of the Year. I was totally shocked, Lewis said. Lewis excelled as guidance secretary. When the data secretary retired and the district didnt post the job, Lewis found herself holding down both duties. That was very overwhelming to me, she said. I was not a data person at all. I was like a deer in the headlights. The district has helped me so much. Working in an elementary school means everyone, not just teachers, are involved with students. Lewis has participated in Halloween parties and the school talent show. And she helps out in other ways. Lewis has breakfast lunchroom duty and works with children in small reading groups. I do things that are little out of my comfort zone, she said. The kids called me Miss Jamie. We have so much fun around here.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com.

CHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe countys long-term goal in introducing alternate assessments is to drive the millage rate down, the commission chairman told a group of residents last week. The intent in the long term is to lower the ad valorem side, said Commission Chairman Joe Meek, speaking to members of the Citrus County Council (CCC), a not-for-profit, nonpartisan consortium of homeowner associations, civic groups and environmental groups. The issue that we have immediately is the shortfall that we are encountering, so it cannot be completely revenue neutral right now. Meek was responding to a question by Gail Jannarone of Crystal River about municipal services taxing and benefit units. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is going forward with MSTUs and MSBUs as property tax revenues decline because of the drop in home values. In addition, the BOCC faces another shortfall from Progress EnergyDuke, the countys largest taxpayer, which refused to pay its total tax bill, leaving the budget $16 million in the hole. Specifically, Jannarone asked about the county imposing MSTUs, an ad valorem tax levy to cover the cost of providing a service or improvement based on taxable value. At the last meeting of the BOCC, the board authorized a consultant to develop an MSTU for road patrol services, in addition to two MSBUs for road improvements and fire protection services. MSBUs are shared cost assessments, while MSTUs are property assessments. While the TUs and BUs ultimately should drive down the millage rate, Meek said, I dont think that can happen right away. It has to be a gradual slide. Meek said he did not want to give the misconception the TUs and BUs would be revenue neutral. What were going to try to do is cut costs where we can but also look at stabilizing long-term revenue, Meek said. But the ultimate goal is to drive the millage rate down. Meek gave Marion County, with a low millage rate, as an example. But they have TUs and BUs to supplement that. So right now were paying double duty, Jannarone observed. Ill push forward to lower the ad valorem side, Meek said. It just cant be revenue neutral right now. Meek addressed many other issues raised by CCC members. The CCC has invited a county commissioner to each monthly meeting to take questions. Theodora Rusnak, CCC president, said the CCC would like to host a public forum about the alternate sources of revenue.

Joe Meekchairman, Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. CHARLESLAWRENCE Special to the ChronicleIn January, fingerstyle guitar wizard and Citrus County resident Richard Gilewitz traveled to Tasmania (pop. 512,000) to bring his unique playing style to people living down under. This year was Gilewitzs third trip to the island state off the southern tip of Australia. The first year, local guitar hero Steve Gadd brought me there because of my connection to legendary fingerstyle guitarist John Fahey. ... John toured and recorded down there and put out a record, Live In Tasmania. These days, Steve Gadd heard through the grapevine that I was coming to New Zealand and invited me to Tasmania to revisit Johns recording, Gilewitz said. When touring Tasmania this year, Gilewitz performed at two music festivals, the Cygnet Folk Festival where he was a headliner and, the more avant-garde festival, Mona Foma. The trip to Tasmania wasnt without incident: my $8,000 guitar was destroyed on the trip. Qantas Airlines did the right thing by me and within a week of my getting the paperwork in, Qantas started paying for another guitar to be built for me and put me in first class on my way back. They were magnificent. Having some time off between festivals, Gilewitz traveled to the far reaches of Tasmania to do some sightseeing. When he and a friend got to a remote beach, they found a woman sitting on a beach chair and when they approached her she said, Hi Richard. I enjoyed your show at Cygnet. Thats Tasmania. Even though its 7 hours from end to end, everyone knows each other, Gilewitz said. For touring and private lesson information, Richard Gilewitz can be found at www.richard gilewitz.com.

but did not like the response he got he was told they couldnt really do anything about it. That is not an adequate response, Wallis said, noting his practice is an important business in the community and he urgently needed help. Enter sheriffs Detective Craig Fass, who had recently experienced similar harassment via calls from Jamaica. Fass three or four days of threats and harass ment happened in December. A call came to my cell phone and they said something about me expecting a package from UPS, Fass said. He was indeed expecting a package from UPS, but he told the caller to call him back. When the call came in later, this time the caller said Fass won the lottery. I knew it was a scam then, because Craig doesnt win anything, not the lottery, he said. Fass said he told the caller he was a law enforcement officer and the call was bogus. That was when things turned ugly. Fass said the man knew his address and threatened his familys well-being. Its a nuisance, but you have to ignore it, especially when they are calling from overseas, Fass said. He said this type of harassing scam is new to law enforcement in this county and therefore, realistically, difficult to pursue. He said even the international police agency Interpol is unlikely to commit a lot of its resources chasing ghost callers. Fass has a few tips for businesses and individuals faced with these sorts of calls: When you get a call about winning the lottery, dont believe it. If a caller leaves a message and number, never call them back, because it is an easy way to trace your number and maybe other information. Calls originating from overseas, even if they have U.S. area codes, will have a 1, 0 or a combination of numbers before the area code. Do a search of suspicious numbers online. You can usually find negative or positive information about the business affiliated with the number. Calls to Wallis office have stopped as of last Monday and he says he is happy the disruption of his business is over.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

SCAMContinued from Page A1 Lawmakers gift ban might get a few tweaks Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Sen. Tom Lee says hes heard all the complaints about the gift ban law passed seven years ago: Some say its made it more expensive for lawmakers to do their jobs. Others say it led to the abuse of political committees to skirt the ban. They say its awkward for lawmakers to even accept a cup of coffee. Its been held responsible for everything except 9/11, said Lee, whose push to end the influence of money in the legislative process led to the law that bans lawmakers and their staffs from accepting anything from lobbyists and the groups they represent. Lee was Senate president when the law took effect and left the chamber later that year. Now back in the Senate, he wants to tweak the law to address issues some lawmakers say stifle routine interaction with constituents. Were trying to do the best we can in an imperfect process, Lee said. Lee plans to submit an amendment to a Senate ethics bill (SB 2) to allow some exemptions to the gift ban, such as allowing lawmakers to attend functions by an organization and to accept food and beverages of nominal value. The gift ban passed by a wide margin in 2005, but there have been some regrets. Sen. Arthenia Joyner, who voted for the ban as a House member, believes it goes too far, often to the point of silliness. People really sometimes take umbrage and get offended and say, What? I cant give you a cup of coffee? said Joyner, D-Tampa. Legal notices in todays Citrus County Chronicle 000DM0L Meeting Notices . . . . . . . B12 Foreclosure Sale/Action Notices . . . .

time frame. The site should be around 100 acres. Factors in the selection will be transmission line access, access to water and proximity to a natural gas line. Glenn explained the low price of natural gas plus the lower operating and maintenance costs of a gas plant compared to a nuclear plant were factors in the decision to retire the nuclear plant north of Crystal River. Bartow would be the only plant similar in size to what we are looking at building, Progress Energy spokesman Sterling Ivy said.A natural gas plant will employ between 50 to 80 full-time people once completed.During construction, there could be 800 to 1,000 people working to build the plant, usually through contractors. He said a good cost estimate for the project is not available, since so much depends on location and whether a site has to be purchased. Duke CEO Jim Rogers As we retire Crystal River (nuclear plant) and look at the future, we see CR 1 and 2 will be retired in the 2015 to 2017 timeframe, Duke Energy Chairman, President and CEO Jim Rogers said. When you think about those retirements in a connective way, its clear we need additional capacity. In my judgment, gasfired combined-cycle plants are the best capacity. Rogers made the comments Wednesday during Dukes fourth-quarter earnings call. He thinks there will be an adequate supply of natural gas for a long time, with a decade or two of good prices. We believe that building gas in Florida, even though we are significantly dependant on gas, is still a good thing to do going forward, he said. Levy County We believe new nuclear in the long term is in the best interest of the state, Glenn said regarding the future of the planned Levy County nuclear plant. We are focused on getting the operational license from the government. We are focused on that because we believe it is a valuable asset to have. The plant would be a two-reactor complex with an estimated cost of $19 billion to $24 billion. He said it is scheduled to be operational in 2024-25.

DUKEContinued from Page A1 Submerged debris threatens tourism Associated PressMANTOLOKING, N.J. On the surface, things look calm and placid. Just beneath the waterline, however, its a different story. Cars and sunken boats. Patio furniture. Pieces of docks. Entire houses. A grandfather clock, deposited in a marsh a mile from solid land. Hot tubs. Tons of sand. All displaced by superstorm Sandy. We did a cleanup three weeks ago. Then when we went back the other day, you could still see junk coming up in the wash, said Paul Harris, president of the New Jersey Beach Buggy Association, which helps take care of beaches on which the group goes surf fishing. They go and clean it again, and two days later, you have the same thing again. Theres nothing you can do about it; you cant vacuum the ocean. Coastal areas of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut are racing to remove untold tons of debris from waters hardest hit by the Oct. 29 storm before the summer swimming and boating seasons begin two of the main reasons people flock there each year and the underpinning of the regions multibillion-dollar tourist industry. The sunken debris presents an urgent safety issue. Swimmers could cut themselves on submerged junk, step on one of thousands of boardwalk nails ripped loose, or suffer neck or spinal injuries diving into solid objects. Boats could hit debris, pitching their occupants overboard, or in severe cases, sinking. The cleanup wont be easy, fast or cheap. The amount of debris that needs to be removed is mind-boggling, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said, ticking off the statistics in his state: 1,400 vessels sunk, broken loose or destroyed during the storm. In just one shore town alone, Mantoloking, 58 buildings were washed into Barnegat Bay, along with eight vehicles, and a staggering amount of sand carried from the ocean beaches into the bay. Everything you can imagine is sitting in our waterways, he said. Barnegat Bay is likely to have some no-go zones in place for at least part of the spring and summer as cleanup work progresses. Big Al Wutkowski, a locally famous stripedbass fisherman who volunteers as the Barnegat Bay Guardian for the American Littoral Society environmental group, is worried about what still lurks beneath the waves. When people start putting their boats back in the water in April, I know theyre going to start hitting stuff, he said. Associated PressA home sits Feb. 5 in the middle of Barnegat Bay, washed into the Bay from Mantoloking N.J. during superstorm Sandy. States hit hard by Sandy are gearing up to remove tons of debris from waterways, including houses, vehicles, sunken boats, furniture, pieces of piers, decks and bulkheads all of which must be removed before the summer swimming and boating season.

Page A8MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2013 Pork is what you make of itRecently I wrote a letter critical of Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugents stand against the Sandy Storm Aid Bill. A recent letter from Jeff Bauman took me to task over it and praised our representatives for not wasting our hard-earned tax dollars on pork projects. My first question is, What is pork? Is a bridge to nowhere in Alaska pork? How about pallets of millions of hard-earned American tax dollars being sent to Iraq to hand out on the street to buy friends, as reported on Minutes? Mr. Bauman references some of what he called pork: Roof repairs on the Smithsonian Institution, dredging projects, repairs to Amtrak, etc. To one person they are pork projects; to many others they are critical public works projects. Should they be in an aid package? Maybe yes, maybe no, but that is the way our Congress has done in for many years. Speaking of pork, was it pork for the federal aid dollars for Katrina to go toward rebuilding the Louisiana Superdome? It is for the private use of a money-making sports team. I would venture to say to sports fans who just enjoyed the Super Bowl it was well-spent money. To those who are still waiting to get their homes rebuilt maybe not so much. How about we push for a constitutional amendment that no disaster aid bill can be passed unless all members of Congress agree that there is no pork? That way we will really be protecting our hardearned tax dollars. Of course, that means the bill will most likely never get passed, lives will be lost, people will be homeless, the economy will crash for the area, jobs will be lost but there will be no pork. Congress has taken care of its pet projects since it was created. I personally do not like it, but I am more than willing to see American tax dollars being spent in the United States to help Americans in need than wasted on our constant attempt to buy friends in foreign countries or line politicians pockets.Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills WASHINGTON In the 12 months we have to steel ourselves for the next State of the Union spectacle, let us count the ways that this spawn of democratic Caesarism presidency-worship has become grotesque. It would be the most embarrassing ceremony in the nations civic liturgy were the nation still capable of being embarrassed by its puerile faith in presidential magic. The Constitution laconically requires only that the president shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient. Nothing requires from time to time to be construed as every damn year. Informing and recommending need not involve todays tawdry ritual of wishful thinking by presidents unhinged from political reality, and histrionics by their audiences. And must we be annually reminded that all presidents think that everything they want is necessary and expedient? Some of the blame for this yearly night of nonsense goes to Ronald Reagan. Most, however, goes to Woodrow Wilson. Reagan, who loved entertainment, pioneered the regrettable practice of stocking the House gallery with (usually) admirable people. Wilson, who loved himself, had, as professors often do, a theory, which caused him to reverse Thomas Jeffersons wholesome reticence. When the Founding generation was developing customs and manners appropriate to a republic, George Washington and John Adams made the mistake of going to Congress to do their constitutional duty of informing and recommending. Jefferson, however, disliked the sound of his voice such an aversion is a vanishingly rare presidential virtue and considered it monarchical for the executive to lecture the legislature, the lofty instructing underlings. So he sent written thoughts to Capitol Hill, a practice good enough for subsequent presidents until Wilson in 1913 delivered his message orally, pursuant to the progressives belief in inspirational and tutelary presidents. It is beyond unseemly, it is anticonstitutional for senior military officers and, even worse, Supreme Court justices, to attend these political rallies where, with metronomic regularity, legislators of the presidents party leap to their feet to whinny approval of every bromide and vow. Members of the other party remain theatrically stolid, thereby provoking brow-furrowing punditry about why John Boehner did not rise (to genuflect? salute? swoon?) when Barack Obama mentioned this or that. Tuesday night, the justices, generals and admirals, looking as awkward as wallflowers at a prom, at least stayed seated. Except for Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito, who stayed away. They missed a clunker of a speech, although the tedium was not much worse than usual, and was redeemed by clarifying three things. First, Obamas declaration that nothing in his long list of proposed spending should should? increase our deficit by a single dime means there should be commensurate tax increases. Second, now that he has proclaimed that government must keep the promises weve already made, only the uneducable can still believe he will consider entitlement reforms. Third, by saying spending cuts under the sequester would be harsh and would devastate domestic programs, he made applesauce of those two words: The cuts would remove only $85 billion from this years almost $3.6 trillion budget, and over a decade they would cut just $1.2 trillion from projected spending of $46 trillion. And spending this year would still be well above the post-1945 norm as a percentage of gross domestic product. Although Obama is a self-proclaimed respecter of science, he does not stoop to empiricism. Understandably. Data are unkind to his assertion that climate change is causing storms to become more severe and drought to become more prevalent. Measured by accumulated cyclone energy, hurricane and other tropical cyclone activity is at a threedecade low, and Nature journal reports that globally there has been little change in drought over the past 60 years. Wilsons stroke prevented him from delivering the State of the Union orally in 1919 and 1920, but Warren Harding, not known for a strong sense of propriety, continued the deplorable practice in 1921 and 1922. Calvin Coolidge did so in 1923, four months after becoming president, but not a second time. Wilsons practice was, however, made the norm by the man who had first come to Washington as Wilsons assistant secretary of the Navy, Franklin Roosevelt. State of the Union addresses are now integral to the apotheosis of the presidency. If government is going to be omniprovident, modern presidents are going to be omnipresent, and politics is going to be infantile. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost.com.

The Panthers coach and athletic director recently faced the unenviable position of putting up with business as usual with the heavy handed politics of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) or doing what they think is best for their student athletes even though the decision might invite criticism. Last week, they chose to become independent in football, which means they cannot compete in the state playoffs. The dilemma for Lecanto began in January when the FHSAA granted two 7A schools (1,872 to 2,240 student population) their petitions to play down in 6A competition. Ocala Forest and Gainesville High were allowed to join Lecanto, Citrus, Lake Weir and Vanguards District 6A-5. Gainesville has a student population of 1,935 and Forest 2,080. Lecantos student population is 1,745, and because of local redistricting, will be dropping to a level equivalent to a 5A classification (1,049 to 1,573). Citrus student population is 1,582 and is also expected to drop. The problem with district classifications is two-fold: size and geography. The schools want to play other schools similar in enrollment and close enough to control travel costs and to build competitive rivalries. The FHSAA usually tries to place schools in districts within those classes by geographic location. Admittedly, placing Gainesville and Forest in 7A-2 with schools in Tallahassee was a ridiculous proposition, and its understandable they petitioned to move. The FHSAA could have easily avoided the situation by placing Forest, Gainesville, Gainesville Buchholz and West Port in their own district in 7A. Those four schools would have been less than an hours drive from one another and all are relatively the same size. Instead, (Ocala) West Port is placed in the 8A class and must travel to Jacksonville for all its district games, while Gainesville and Forest get to play schools much smaller in size. The FHSAA has a tough task, but it makes it tougher on itself when it allows hardship petitions that have holes in them while throwing logic out the window. If it is going to allow borderline schools to move up and down classifications, then it might as well design the districts with geography as its primary criterion. Then we might see a more logical district that includes Citrus, Lecanto, Dunnellon, Crystal River, Weeki Wachee, Nature Coast, Central and Hernando. These schools are all short drives from each other and the games would be highly competitive and create natural rivalries, as large contingents of fans could easily travel from contest to contest. Instead, we have perennial power Gainesville (ranked No. 1 most of last year) getting to play in a lower classification against schools it handpicks to beat up on. We applaud the courage Lecanto officials showed by saying weve had enough and are striking out on our own. If more schools would follow suit, it might force the FHSAA to be more fair and equitable in the decisions it makes when creating district classifications. THE ISSUE:Lecanto becomes independent in football.OUR OPINION:Best move available.

Sometimes shes a really hard teacher, Taylor said. We have to think. For Smith, a 33-year Florida educator with the past three years at Citrus High, those efforts were recognized the highest way when she was named the 2014 Citrus County Schools Teacher of the Year. I was stunned, she said. It was quite an honor. Her principal, Dale Johns, wrote to the teacher-of-the-year committee that Smith reaches out to all students. It was obvious in her first month at Citrus that she was a high energy professional dedicated to her students and her discipline, Johns wrote. Her students quickly recognized her knowledge and commitment to them and the program, and they responded positively. Test scores in Advanced Placement Literature and Composition have risen 21 percent since her arrival, Johns said. And he noted Smith does all she can to help students prepare for college. To this end, she devotes an enormous amount of time helping them with their college applications and essays, and trying to mold them into students who can write on a college level, Johns said. Smith said educators should set a high bar for students so they can succeed in college and a career beyond that. If you aim high and fall short, youre better off than aiming down low and achieving it, she said. Smith is a teacher who supports state-mandated college-readiness classes, even for students who say they have no plans for college. She said a 17-year-old may have different thinking at 20 years old, and its the schools responsibility to make sure that student is prepared. What if you change your mind? What if you decide later to go college? she said. Goals change. She added: We have to be wiser than they are. They have no idea what they want to do.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

Makers Mark wont lower markLOUISVILLE, Ky. After backlash from customers, the producer of Makers Mark bourbon is reversing a decision to cut the amount of alcohol in bottles of its famous whiskey. Rob Samuels, Makers Marks chief operating officer, said Sunday it is restoring the alcohol volume of its product to its historic level of 45 percent, or 90 proof.

Protesters told the Los Angeles Times they didnt support Dorners deadly methods, but objected to police corruption and brutality, and said they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorners death and injuries to innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him. Michael Nam, 30, said it was pretty obvious police had no intention of bringing Dorner in alive.

No, I dont believe hes qualified, said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. But I dont believe that we should hold up his nomination any further, because I think its (been) a reasonable amount to time to have questions answered. Critics contend Hagel isnt supportive enough of Israel and is unreasonably sympathetic to Iran. Republicans last week held up a confirmation vote but have indicated that they eventually would relent and permit a vote when they return from their break on Feb. 25. Sen. Lindsey Graham, whos led the opposition with McCain to Hagels nomination, said critics were doing our job to scrutinize ... one of the most unqualified, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. But at the end of the day, said Graham, R-S.C., this is the presidents decision. I give him great discretion. I cant believe one Democratic colleague is not upset by this choice enough to speak out. McCain: Hagel not qualified, but dont stall vote Associated PressWASHINGTON A sharply divided Congress isnt likely to jump at President Barack Obamas challenge for quick passage of a mortgage refinancing bill that supporters say could help millions of homeowners save big each year and boost the economy. The proposal is part of a push by Democrats and the White House to help homeowners take advantage of low interest rates as a way to help the housing market recover and to give the economy a shot in the arm. While the bill could gain traction in the Democratic-controlled Senate, it faces a rough road in the GOP-run House, where many Republicans favor scaling back the governments role in the housing market as a way of aiding the economy. Similar versions of the measure died in the House and Senates lame duck sessions last year. The American taxpayers have already sunk $190 billion dollars into the operations of Fannie and Freddie, said Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, a member of the House Financial Services Committee. Its time that we wind their operations down instead of using them as a piggy bank for failed programs that further delay the housing recovery. Many of the nearly 12 million homeowners who have loans through Fannie mae and Freddie mac cant refinance at a lower rate because of red tape and high fees. The bill also would reduce up-front fees that borrowers pay on refinances and eliminate appraisal costs for all borrowers. Twenty Senate Democrats are cosponsors of this years bill, but no Republicans have signed on. Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., filed a House version of the bill which died during the last Congress. He accused Republicans of not wanting to give Obama an election-year boost by passing the measure. The Republican leadership wanted Obama to fail, Welch said. Mortgage refi bill facing tough road in Congress Bombings kill dozens in Iraq Associated PressBAGHDAD Car bombs tore through shopping areas within minutes of each other in mainly Shiite neighborhoods of the Iraqi capital on Sunday, killing at least 37 people and wounding more than 100. The attacks come amid rising sectarian discord in Iraq and appear aimed at shaking Iraqis confidence in the Shiite-led government. The explosions struck at the start of the local work week and primarily targeted outdoor markets. It was the third time this month that attacks have claimed more than 20 lives in a single day. The attacks began with the detonation of a parked car loaded with explosives in the sprawling Shiite district of Sadr City. Two more parked cars later exploded elsewhere in the neighborhood. Simultaneous explosions also hit the southeastern Baghdad neighborhood of al-Amin, where the force of the blasts left behind little except the mangled chassis of two cars. An open-air market in Husseiniya, northeast ofthe capital, and the Kamaliya area in Baghdads eastern suburbs were also hit. Another car bomb exploded near street vendors and a police car in the central commercial district of Karradah. Police and hospital officials provided the death toll, and said more than 130 people were wounded. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they werent authorized to brief reporters.

Patrick wins Daytona 500 pole position Associated PressDAYTONA BEACH Danica Patrick has made history before as a woman and a racer, in Indianapolis and Japan. The spotlight is nothing new. But never has it been this bright before. Patrick won the Daytona 500 pole Sunday, becoming the first woman to secure the top spot for any race in NASCARs premier circuit. Its by far the biggest achievement of her stock-car career. I was brought up to be the fastest driver, not the fastest girl, she said. That was instilled in me from very young, from the beginning. Then I feel like thriving in those moments, where the pressures on, has also been a help for me. I also feel like Ive been lucky in my career to be with good teams and have good people around me. I dont think any of it would have been possible without that. For those reasons, Ive been lucky enough to make history, be the first woman to do many things. I really just hope that I dont stop doing that. We have a lot more history to make. We are excited to do it. Her latest stamp in the history books came with a lap at 196.434 mph around Daytona International Speedway. Patrick went out eighth in the qualifying session, then had to wait about two hours as 37 fellow drivers tried to take her spot. Only four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon even came close to knocking her off. Gordon was the only other driver who topped 196 mph in qualifying. He locked up the other guaranteed spot in next weeks season-opening Daytona 500. Its great to be a part of history with Danica being on the pole, said Gordon, who joked that at least he was the fastest guy. I think we all know how popular she is, what this will do for our sport. Congratulations to her. Proud to be on there with her. The rest of the field will be set in duel qualifying races Thursday. However the lineup unfolds, all drivers will line up behind Patricks No. 10 Chevrolet SS. And she knows her latest achievement will mean more public relations work. The routine is nothing new for Patrick, who was the first woman to lead laps in the Indianapolis 500. She finished third in 2009, the highest finish in that illustrious race for a woman. And she became the only woman to win an IndyCar race when she did it in Japan in 2008. Hardly anyone witnessed that victory.

Jones is attending the Braves camp as a guest instructor. Chipper back in camp, but hes not coming back Associated PressKISSIMMEE Chipper Jones was lingering beyond the left-field wall, signing as many autographs as he could, when someone asked the obvious question. Do you miss it yet? Jones was quick with a reply. No, he said, not too much. Jones has reported to camp with the Atlanta Braves, but dont get too excited about seeing No. 10 in that familiar uniform. There are no plans for a comeback. If anything, hes surprised at just how little he misses the game that was such a big part of his life. Hes kept himself more than busy (just check out his Twitter account!), from starting up business ventures to running his ranch, from a new romantic relationship to spending time with his kids, from working the banquet circuit to enjoying the solitude of hunting. Im having fun, Jones said Sunday, while walking across the outfield at Champion Stadium, the spring training home of the Braves. Its kept my mind off things pretty much. I thought this week would probably be a little more difficult than it has been. But, you know, I really havent had the urge to put the uniform on again. That, he went on, lets me know I made the right decision. I had my time. Now, its their time. Jones will be suiting up until Wednesday, helping out the only major league team he ever played for as a special instructor. He still believes he has something to offer, but cringed at all the former teammates jokingly calling him coach. I wouldnt really say Im a coach, Jones said, even as someone else walked by and shouted it at him. Im more of a ... well, I dont know what you would call me. But I dont like being called a coach. I dont think Im quite to that extent yet. This is just kind of a carryover See CHIPPER/ Page B4 Jordan still a star at 50 Associated PressHOUSTON Michael Jordan turned 50 on Sunday, giving this years All-Stars a chance to reflect on his illustrious career and how much he still means to the sport. In a weekend filled with the NBAs greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about. Though he hasnt played since the 2002-03 season, Jordans influence still permeates the league and its players. Every kid that wanted to play basketball, that could play, that couldnt play, you tried to emulate Michael Jordan, Heat star Dwyane Wade said. Thats why there will never be another one of him. He the first of his kind. Everything he did was groundbreaking. He did it with so much flare and so much pizazz that even today people are still trying to be like Mike. Jordan won six titles and five MVP awards during a career spent mostly with the Bulls that began in 1984. Jordan was in Houston this weekend, and celebrated his birthday early with a private bash on Friday at the Museum of Fine Arts with guests including LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is so impressed with Jordan that he said hes like a real version of Superman. Be Like Mike was more than a marketing campaign. It was a dream for many of todays players. Hes amazing, Howard said. Hes one of the reasons why we played basketball. He inspired us to do great things. I hear his voice sometimes on commercials, it makes you want to get out there and try to do something. Jordan retired twice before finally leaving the game for good at age 39. Some people wondered this weekend if he could still play in the NBA, despite reaching the age where he qualifies for an AARP card. Wade believes this day will be a time for Jordan to reflect on his storied career and appreciate his family and health. Kind of look back at all the things he did, so many years ago in the NBA that still lives on today, Wade said. What hes been able to do to stay this relevant, in this role, the way he has, is phenomenal. SEANARNOLD CorrespondentINVERNESS Local standouts Herb Neumann Jr. and Richie Smith finished strong Saturday in the 40-lap Open Wheel Modified feature to take the top two spots, while 16-yearold Karlin Ray, of Floral City, paced the Pure Stocks for the second consecutive week. The night also featured the seasons first run of Pro Figure 8s at Inverness Citrus County Speedway. Neumann Jr., of Inverness, surged from the middle of a 17car field to grab the fifth position after a lap 9 caution, before riding parallel above fellow Inverness driver Steven Hise (fourth place) on lap 11. Neumann, winner of multiple Super Late Model championships and third-place finisher in the Feb. 9 SLM feature, secured the third position by lap 15 and later moved to second on lap 18, with heat winner Roger Blevins, of Largo, occupying the front. Hernandos Smith, meanwhile, started all the way at the back in the 17th position and methodically worked his way up to fourth by lap 20 as Blevins, Neumann, Hise and Smith buffered themselves from the rest of the field and remained in close proximity for the remainder. I was just being patient, knowing I had a long way to go and knowing we had a good car, said Smith, who leads the division in points by scoring a wire-to-wire victory in its Feb. 2 feature. Smith edged out Hise on lap 34 as Neumann continued to pursue Blevins from the inside before Neumann secured the lead and Smith moved to No. 2 ahead of third-place finisher Blevins for good on the penultimate lap.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES John Merrick was a young face in the crowd at Riviera for so many years, dreaming of one day playing the fabled course on the PGA Tour. On Sunday, he did better than that. He won on it. Merrick hit two clutch shots that led to two pars in a sudden-death playoff and won the Northern Trust Open on Sunday when Charlie Beljan missed a 5-foot par putt on the second extra hole. Merrick, who closed with a 2-under 69, became only the ninth player make this tournament his first PGA Tour victory. It could not have come at a better place. Merrick grew up in Long Beach, attended this event as a kid and went to school down the street at UCLA. I cant put this into words, he said off the 10th green, his eyes welling with tears. Growing up as a kid, coming out here, I just wanted to play this tournament. It was a tough finish for Beljan, famous for having an anxiety attack when he won at Disney late last year. He holed an 18-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole, similar to the theatrics provided last year by Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley, to close with a 4under 67 and wind up in a playoff. He had to make a tough 6foot putt for par on No. 18 on the first playoff hole. Going to the par-4 10th, 315 yards of sheer nerves, Beljan drove long and left, and his chip didnt reach the green. He putted his third shot just above the hole, and watched it slide by on the left for a bogey. Beljan also made bogey on the 10th hole in regulation. The key for Merrick might have been on the par-5 17th in regulation, when he pulled his second shot from a bunker toward the eucalyptus trees, only to find that he had just enough of a gap to go at the green and escape with par. More great recoveries followed in the playoffs. He was well to the right of the 18th fairway, and hit a hard punch shot that rolled just over the back of the green and allowed him to get up-and-down for par. On the second hole, the dangerous 10th, he laid up too far to the right nothing short of a perfectly struck wedge could stay on the green, and he pulled it off, the ball settling 18 feet away. A few inches longer and it would have tumbled into the back bunker. Merrick, who finished on 11under 273, moved to No. 4 in the FedEx Cup and is virtually assured of qualifying for his first World Golf Championship next month at Doral. Fredrik Jacobson missed a 4-foot par putt on the 18th hole that would have put the Swede in a playoff. He wound up with a 69 and tied for third with Charl Schwartzel (70) and Bill Haas (73), who also had chances to win at different stages in their rounds. The final round contained far more drama than anyone imagined at the start of the day, when Haas had a threeshot lead. Six players were separated by one shot going into the final hour at Riviera, and it easily could have been a repeat of that six-man playoff in 2001 in the cold rain.Match Play pairings announcedLOS ANGELES Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods will face some familiar players in the opening round of the Match Play Championship. McIlroy, the 23-year-old from Northern Ireland, is the No. 1 seed at Dove Mountain north of Tucson, Ariz. He will play Shane Lowry of Ireland, who got in when Phil Mickelson chose not to play. Woods is the No. 2 and will play Charles Howell III, the first time they have squared off in this format since Woods beat Howell in the quarterfinals of the 1996 U.S. Amateur. Luke Donald, who won the Match Play in 2011, is the No. 3 seed and opens against Marcel Siem of Germany. Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa is the No. 4 seed and will play Richie Ramsay of Scotland. The tournament begins Wednesday.Langer wins ACE Group ClassicNAPLES Bernhard Langer shot a final-round 72 and won his second ACE Group Classic title in three years by one stroke. Langer two-putted from 50 feet on the 18th for par to finish at 12-under 204, ahead of Jay Don Blake at TwinEagles Clubs Talon Course. Langer, who won this tournament in 2011 and was runner-up last year, survived three bogeys and a double bogey. It was his 17th victory on the Champions Tour, and the seventh year he has won at least one tournament.Jiyai Shin wins Australian OpenCANBERRA, Australia South Koreas Jiyai Shin won the Australian Womens Golf Open by two shots, finishing with a 1-under 72 to beat world No. 1 Yani Tseng after being tied for the overnight lead with teenage star Lydia Ko. Shin mixed three birdies with two bogeys in a final round battle with Ko and Tseng of Taiwan, and added the Australian title to her two British Opens among 37 professional victories. Kos share of the lead evaporated quickly when she began the final day with a double bogey and bogey. However, the 15-year-old who was born in South Korea and is based in New Zealand fought back to reclaim the joint lead after 13 holes before Shin dismissed the challenge.B2MONDAY, FEBRUARY18, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEGOLF 000E259 2431 Suncoast Blvd., US Hwy. 19, Homosassa, FL 34448 352-628-5100 Village Cadillac The Standard of the World *Ultra Low-Mileage Lease fo r Qualified Lessees. $299/ month 36 month lease. $2,899 due at signing (after all offers) Includes security deposit Tax, title, dealer fees and optional equipment extra.

Associated PressCHICAGO Brent Seabrook and Jonathan Toews each had a goal and an assist to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-2, extending their seasonopening points streak to 15 games. Patrick Sharp also scored for the Blackhawks (12-0-3), who matched the 1984-85 Edmonton Oilers for the second-longest season-opening points streak in NHL history. Chicago is one away from the league record, set by Anaheim in 2006-07. Mike Richards scored two power-play goals in the third period to pull the Kings within one after Chicago had built a 3-0 lead. Blackhawks backup goalie Ray Emery made 25 saves. Penguins 4, Sabres 3BUFFALO, N.Y. Defenseman Paul Martin scored with 2:04 left to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres. Pascal Dupuis had two goals and an assist and Sidney Crosby also scored and set up Martins goal. Pittsburgh (11-5-0) won its third straight and improved to 8-2 in its past 10 to move ahead of idle New Jersey atop the Eastern Conference standings. The Penguins were forced to rally from behind after squandering a 2-0 lead. Dupuis tied the game at 3 by one-timing in Kris Letangs cross-ice feed with 5:17 left. Martin then scored his second of the season when his 40footer deflected in off the stick of Sabres defenseman Christian Ehrhoff in front.Flames 4, Stars 3DALLAS Steve Begin, Matt Stajan and Roman Horak each scored their first goals of the season in the third period and the Calgary Flames overcame a two-goal deficit to defeat the Dallas Stars 4-3. Begin snapped a 3-3 tie with 9:30 remaining. Michael Cammalleri also scored for Calgary, while Joey MacDonald made 27 saves for his first win in his first start and second appearance overall for the Flames. Cody Eakin, Reilly Smith and Ryan Garbutt scored second-period goals for Dallas.Rangers 2, Capitals 1NEW YORK Derek Stepans power-play goal early in the third period snapped a tie and completed the New York Rangers rally to a 2-1 victory over the Washington Capitals. It was the only time New Yorks struggling power-play unit connected in the game, but it came at the perfect time and helped snap the Capitals season-high winning streak at three games. Washington, which lost to New York in the second round of last years playoffs, had been 11-5-2 in its last 18 regular-season games against the Rangers. New York improved to 5-1-1 in its past seven. Carl Hagelin tied it for the Rangers in the second period after defenseman John Carlson put Washington ahead in the first. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots for his seventh win. Braden Holtby was busier for Washington and made 38 saves.Wild 3, Red Wings 2ST. PAUL, Minn. Dany Heatley, Jason Zucker and Torrey Mitchell all scored in the second period to rally the Minnesota Wild over the Detroit Red Wings 3-2. It was Minnesotas first regulation win since Jan. 29 and just the second time it scored at least three goals in regulation over the last nine games. Damien Brunner and Pavel Datsyuk scored for Detroit, which has lost three straight for the first time since March 10-21 of last season. After Heatley snapped a nine-game scoring drought to make it 2-1, Zucker went coast-to-coast and scored his first NHL goal to tie it. Mitchell scored his first goal in a Wild uniform off a faceoff scrum to give Minnesota the lead 30 seconds later.Bruins 3, Jets 2WINNIPEG, Manitoba Brad Marchand scored 36 seconds into the third period to lift the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over Winnipeg. Tyler Seguin and Daniel Paille also scored, and Patrice Bergeron had two assists for the Bruins (9-9-2). Tuukka Rask stopped 22 for Boston to earn his seventh win of the season. Alexandre Burmistrov had a goal and an assist for Winnipeg (5-8-1), while Evander Kane recorded his fourth goal of the season and first in nine games. Ondrej Pavelec made 23 saves for the Jets, who lost their third straight.SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, FEBRUARY18, 2013 B3 Seabrook, Toews lead Blackhawks past Kings Associated PressLos Angles King Keaton Ellerby, left, puts a stick on Blackhawk Andrew Shaw Sunday in the second period in Chicago. The Blackhawks won 3-2. Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Theres a buzz about NASCAR and the seasonopening Daytona 500 that has nothing to do with an exploding jet dryer or a well-timed tweet from a driver. The new Gen-6 race car makes its long-awaited debut at Daytona International Speedway, and the success of the 2013 season could depend heavily on its performance. Already, things look good. After all, NASCARs most popular driver has given the Gen-6 a ringing endorsement. This sport is going to be revolutionized again with this car, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said after one of his first full test sessions in the car. Thats the shot in the arm NASCAR is looking for after a 2012 season that saw the quality of the racing criticized at times. Long green-flag runs and a lack of cautions frustrated fans, and that irritated drivers who openly wondered if fans were more interested in wrecking than they were in racing. Behind the scenes, NASCAR was working hard on a new car that would replace the Car of Tomorrow after six years, and hopefully improve the on-track product. It was welcome news to Earnhardt, who won 17 races in the old car but only two after the CoT was introduced during the 2007 season. I struggled with the old car, he said. I think the rest of the car is definitely a step back toward the old, original car we used to have. I think thats going to benefit me in certain areas. The car is really exciting. Im looking forward to it. So is NASCAR, which has worked with manufacturers and teams on both the look of the car and how it drives. The result is a car that resembles what the automakers sell in the showroom and a design that allows fans to tell if the car is a Chevrolet, Ford or Toyota. And just in case a fan wasnt that car savvy, the drivers names and the manufacturer logo will all be on the windshield this year as NASCAR attempts to make the car as big a star as the driver. The cars debut comes Saturday night at Daytona in the Sprint Unlimited exhibition race, where fans can vote on various elements of the race format. It has created interest in Speedweeks, which last year were remembered most for Juan Pablo crashing into a jet dryer loaded with fuel and Brad Keselowski tweeting about it during the lengthy delay to put out the fire and repair the charred track. The fireball put the Daytona 500 in the mainstream spotlight, but the racing that followed failed to entertain a wider audience. Keselowski was thrust onto the national stage with his well-timed tweets and he rode the wave all the way to his first Sprint Cup title. The win over five-time champion Jimmie Johnson was a breakthrough for Keselowski, who grabbed team owner Roger Penske his first title and proved the odd pairing of driver and owner had blossomed into an elite tandem. Now everyone gets to see what Keselowski will do for an encore. NASCAR has forbidden him from using his phone in his car, and hell be hard pressed to outdo his beer-chugging live television interview minutes after clinching the championship. Even harder will be defending his title as the Penske Racing organization left Dodge at the end of the year and goes into this season as a Ford team. Penske is no longer building its own engines, and will now get them from Roush Yates as a customer of Fords flagship team. Keselowski will have a new teammate in Joey Logano, who was replaced at Joe Gibbs Racing by Matt Kenseth in the biggest driver move of the year. Kenseth left Roush Fenway Racing, where hed spent his entire career, to join Gibbs and its volatile driver lineup of Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin. Hamlin was a title contender through the halfway point of the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup title, but he stumbled at Martinsville with a mechanical failure and never recovered. Busch missed the Chase and declared 2012 the absolute worst year of my career after winning just one race across NASCARs three national series. Kenseth was replaced at Roush by two-time Nationwide champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. If Stenhouse wasnt under enough pressure as the replacement for the 2003 Cup champion, hell be under tremendous scrutiny this season as the other half of NASCARs current it couple. Danica Patrick, who is moving to a full Cup schedule this year, told The Associated Press last month that shes dating Stenhouse after she and her husband got a divorce. The Roush organization will also receive attention as fans watch and to see if Carl Edwards can rebound from last years slump. After losing the championship to Tony Stewart on a tie-breaker, Edwards went through a winless 2012 season and failed to make the Chase. And, four-time champion Jeff Gordon will be starting fresh after his controversial close to 2012. He intentionally wrecked Clint Bowyer in Phoenix, triggering a garage-area melee between their crews. Associated PressThe new Chevrolet SS racing car is displayed Saturday at Daytona International Speedway, in Daytona Beach, Fla. Chevrolet might have pulled out of NASCAR had the sanctioning body not agreed to redesign race cars and make them more relevant to consumers. NASCAR President Mike Helton and Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick said they had talks with the American automaker that made it clear things needed to change to keep Chevrolet happy. But Mark Reuss, president of General Motors North America, said the auto giant never threatened to walk. NASCAR season arrives with a buzz This sport is going to be revolutionized again with this car. Dale Earnhardt Jr.talking about the new Gen-6 race car. Nadal wins 1st title since return from injury Associated PressSAO PAULO Rafael Nadal beat David Nalbandian 6-2, 6-3 in the Brazil Open final on Sunday, winning his first title since returning from a seven-month layoff to treat his left knee. Nadal thrust his arms into the air and pumped his fist after a long ball by Nalbandian made him the champion of the indoor clay-court tournament for the second time. The Spaniard also won the event in 2005. It was Nadals 51st singles title, and first since winning the French Open for the seventh time last June. Nadal struggled to find a rhythm in the beginning but was still able to break Nalbandians serve twice to take the first set. He then rallied from 3-0 down in the second to win six straight games and close out the match in 1 hour, 18 minutes at the Ibirapuera arena. Nadal, who was coming off two three-set matches, still looked far from his best and didnt seem to be moving well. The knee appeared to be bothering him again and he left many balls unchallenged throughout the match. The 26-year-old Nadal, currently No. 5 in the world, is recovering from a torn and inflamed tendon in his knee. He returned to action at the VTR Open in Chile last week, losing the singles and doubles finals. The 11-time Grand Slam champion admitted the level of the competition in Brazil was not as high as in other tournaments but said it wasnt bad either, giving him the perfect opportunity to test his knee.Azarenka beats Williams to win Qatar OpenDOHA, Qatar Defending champion Victoria Azarenka stunned Serena Williams 7-6 (6), 2-6, 6-3 to win the Qatar Open on Sunday, earning her 16th title and ending a 10-match losing streak against the American. Azarenka will give up the No. 1 ranking to the secondranked Williams on Monday but extended her current winning streak to 14 matches, including her second Australian Open title. More importantly, she may have turned around what has been a one-sided rivalry against Williams. Azarenka had not beaten Williams since 2009 in Miami, and had a 1-11 record against her going into Sundays final. Associated PressSpains Rafael Nadal returns the ball Sunday to Argentinas David Nalbandian during the Brazil Open ATP tournament final tennis match in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Nadal won 6-2, 6-3.

Leading the field to the green flag in NASCARs showcase event should be must-watch television. Thats a huge accomplishment, team owner and fellow driver Tony Stewart said. Its not like its been 15 or 20 years shes been trying to do this. Its her second trip to Daytona here in a Cup car. Shes made history in the sport. Thats stuff that were proud of being a part of with her. Its something she should have a huge amount of pride in. Its never been done. Theres only one person that can be the first to do anything. Doesnt matter how many do it after you do, accomplish that same goal. The first one that does always has that little bit more significance to it because you were the first. Even before her fast lap Sunday, Patrick was the talk of Speedweeks. Not only did she open up about her budding romance with fellow Sprint Cup rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr., but she was considered the front-runner for the pole after leading practice sessions Saturday. And she didnt disappoint. She kept her car at or near the bottom of the famed track and gained ground on the straightaways, showing lots of power from a Hendrick Motorsports engine. Its easy to come down here in your first or second year as a driver and clip the apron trying to run too tight a line or do something and scrub speed off, Stewart said. Thats something she did an awesome job. Watching her lap, she runs so smooth. ... She did her job behind the wheel, for sure. The result surely felt good for Patrick, especially considering the former IndyCar driver has mostly struggled in three NASCAR seasons. Her best finish in 10 Cup races is 17th, and she has one top-five in 58 starts in the second-tier Nationwide Series. She raced part-time in 2010 and 2011 while still driving a full IndyCar slate. She switched solely to stock cars last season and finished 10th in the Nationwide standings. She made the jump to Sprint Cup this season and will battle Stenhouse for Rookie of the Year honors. Starting out front in an unpredictable, 500-mile race doesnt guarantee any sort of result, but securing the pole will put her in the limelight for at least the rest of the week. She also won the pole at Daytona for last years Nationwide race. This is considerably bigger. The previous highest female qualifier in a Cup race was Janet Guthrie. She started ninth at Bristol and Talladega in 1977. Its obviously a history-making event that will last a long, long time, Guthrie said, praising Patricks feat. Its a different era, of course. Different times. I cant imagine what I would do with a spotter or somebody telling me how to drive. Its rather a different sport now. Back then, there was a much greater difference from the front of the field to the back. Guthrie received a lukewarm reception from fellow drivers back then. Patrick was much more welcomed, undoubtedly because of her background and popularity. Shes comfortable being in the spotlight, evidenced by her racing career, her television commercials and her sudden openness about her personal life. I think when pressures on and when the spotlights on, I feel like it ultimately ends up becoming some of my better moments and my better races and better results, Patrick said. I just understand that if you put the hard work in before you go out there that you can have a little peace and a little peace of mind knowing that youve done everything you can and just let it happen. got to earn it, Neumann said. It doesnt come as easy as the late models. Having Richie (Smith) back there really motivated me a lot, because hes a good driver with a good car and he was coming. Ray won the heat and feature in the Pure Stocks season-opener on Feb. 2, but Saturdays 20-lap, seven-car race found him traversing from the back to the front for the victory. He and Inverness Mike Autenrieth gained separation from the pack midway through the race, but car trouble on 14 left Autenrieth with a fourth-place showing behind Brooksvilles James Johnston (second) and Weirsdales James Holly (third). Pinellas Parks Joey Catarelli, the 2012 Pro Figure 8s champ, won the divisions first feature of the season in 15 laps. His yellow No. 6 trailed Homosassas Charles Herne, until Herne crashed on 8, allowing Caterelli to build a comfortable advantage down the stretch. Floral Citys Thomas Peet and Eric Sharrone finished second and third, respectively. In the Sportsman class, Lakelands Aaron Williamson followed up a lastplace finish from two weeks ago with a wire-to-wire win for his first victory. Brooksvilles Mike Bell, Orlandos Andy Nicholls and Beverly Hills Jay Witfoth followed in the 25-lap event. A flat tire on lap 19 of 20 for thenleader Shannon Kennedy of Summerfield, helped lift Dade Citys Kevin Stone to his first win of the season in the four-cylinder Mini Stocks. Stone passed five cars after the first lap to edge out Summerfields Jesse Mallory. Weirsdales Jerry Daniels and Belleviews Jason Terry rounded out the top placers. Modified Mini Stock, Street Stock, Pure Stock, Figure 8 and Hornet divisions race this Saturday, with heat races beginning at 5:30 p.m. from mentoring these guys when we were playing. And thats not going to stop just because Im not playing. He still fits right in. When Jason Heyward and Justin Upton walked into the batting cages, Jones shouted, All right, here come the big dogs! A short time later, the 40-year-old plopped down on a bench next to Heyward, chatting up the outfielder who is nearly two decades his junior. Theyve got to schedule a day to retire your jersey, Heyward said, breaking into a big smile. It better not be one of those getaway night games. Dont worry, Jones said. Were gonna keep it short and sweet. While the retired third baseman has no desire to get into full-time coaching at this point, he vowed to remain a handy resource should anyone on the Braves need him. Hes always welcome to come around, manager Fredi Gonzalez said, mindful of the leadership role Jones had as a player. I still want these guys to succeed, Jones said. If I can give them a little nugget here and there to help them, Im going to do it. But, tellingly, he now refers to the Braves as they instead of we. He really is retired, and its going to stay that way. He had not thrown a ball until he tossed out the ceremonial first pitch for a game at Stetson University on Saturday. While he carried around a fungo bat during Sundays workout, he hasnt actually taken a swing since his final game, a playoff loss to the Cardinals. Im sure these guys are going to egg me on at some point, Jones said. But I think my back would break if I took a somewhat competitive swing. Pitcher Kris Medlen is still getting used to the idea that Jones is no longer a teammate. Its weird, Medlen said, shaking his head. Coach Jones. Hmm. Coming off that all-too-brief appearance in the playoffs as a wildcard team with a throwing error by Jones contributing heavily to the loss the Braves made a couple of dramatic moves to replace the offensive production that No. 10 provided with such regularity over his 20-plus-year career. First, they signed B.J. Upton as a free agent for essentially the same money Jones was receiving. Then, they pulled off a blockbuster deal with Arizona to land B.J.s younger brother, Justin. Its early, but Jones likes what he sees. They certainly made some sexy moves, he said. When this team is going well, its going to be an exciting team to watch. Certainly, the three guys in the outfield (Upton, Upton and Heyward) are as dynamic as anybody elses threesome in baseball. When Jones headed out to the batting cages, the fans recognized him instantly even though he was bundled up in a jacket on the unseasonably cold day (temperatures were in the 40s) and his eyes were hidden behind a pair of white-framed sunglasses. He watched the guys who will try to replace him, then hung around to sign cards, bats and pictures, chatting with folks who still view him as the face of the franchise. Are you going to take a few swings, one of them asked. Im going to leave that to the hired help, Jones said, drawing plenty of chuckles. Someone else broached a subject thats closer to his heart these days. Hows the hunting going? a man asked. Goooood! Jones replied, his voice rising with excitement. I could turn pro in hunting.

Smith, Wayne Blackshear and Kevin Ware did all the scoring for the Cardinals during a 22-3 run in the first half. Smith also had six rebounds and four assists for Louisville, which has won four of five. Blackshears 3-pointer pulled Louisville (21-5, 9-4) even at 11-all and launched the decisive rally. The Bulls (10-15, 1-12) cut the margin to six early in the second half with the help of a spectacular dunk by Victor Rudd and two free throws by Anthony Collins, but Louisville went back to its full-court pressure to produce another big run of 19-3 in the second half. Jawanza Poland scored 11 points for USF, which shot 24.5 percent and lost its eighth straight.No. 3 Miami 45, Clemson 43CLEMSON, S.C.

Still, Miami pulled it out on Kadjis wide-open 3. Clemson (13-12, 5-8) had three chances to answer back, but Rod Hall was called for an offensive foul on one trip and, after Trey McKinney Jones made a foul shot, Hall missed a layup and K.J.

The Wolverines (22-4, 9-4 Big Ten) had dropped three of their previous four games, including a 23-point loss Tuesday night on the road against No. 8 Michigan State, and needed a half to shake off their slump.

A 3-pointer by Dakarai Tucker pulled Utah within two with 4:46 left, but a putback by Kevin Parrom and a layup by Lyons helped seal it for the Wildcats (21-4, 9-4 Pac-12).

FSU tops Tar Heels Though he isnt seen often, Jordan is never far from the game. He is close to a group of players through his Jordan Brand apparel and as the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. He ignited one of the debates of the weekend when he told NBA TV he would chose Bryant over James based on the number of championships each has won. If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice, but five beats one every time I look at it, and not that (James) wont get five, he may get more than that, but five is bigger than one, Jordan said in the interview, which airs Monday night. Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks counts Jordan as one of the most influential in his decision to play basketball. He changed the game, transcended the game, Anthony said. He changed the way people coached the game from a mental aspect. From a training aspect, how you approach that, he changed that. So for me as a kid to see that and see somebody go through that and succeed, that was motivation. Jordan, who retired for the last time with more than 32,000 points, is perhaps known as much by the younger generation of stars for his namesake Nike shoe as for his basketball skills. The imprint hes had on the league, hes an immortal, Bryant said. Everything that hes done from the business aspect to his professionalism to his work ethic to the global appeal of the game has been something that carries on for generations and generations. Jordan didnt make himself available to the press during All-Star weekend. James said this week that he wasnt too concerned with the TV remarks. At the end of the day, rings dont always define someones career, James said. If thats the case, then I would sit up here and say that I would take (Bill) Russell over Jordan. I wouldnt. I wouldnt take Russell over Jordan, but Russell has 11 rings and Jordan has six. Or Id take, I dont know, Robert Horry over Jordan. I wouldnt do that. But its your own personal opinion. One of the most common sentiments echoed by players this week when talking about Jordan was disbelief that he was turning 50. Time actually flies, Bryant said. Him turning 50, this will be my 17th year, my 15th AllStar Game. Where did the time go?

Associated PressHEBER SPRINGS, Ark. Mindy McCready, who hit the top of the country charts before personal problems sidetracked her career, died Sunday. She was 37. Waren Olmstead, the coroner in Cleburne County, Ark., said McCready died Sunday in Heber Springs but couldnt immediately provide further details. He didnt have further information on who was taking care of her two sons. She arrived in Nashville in 1994 with tapes of her karaoke vocals and earned a recording contract with BNA Records. In 1996, her Guys Do It All the Time hit No. 1 and its dig at male chauvinism endeared her to females. Her other hits included Ten Thousand Angels, also in 1996, and her album by that title sold 2 million copies. However, personal problems plagued her beginning in 2004 and included a custody battle with her mother over one of her sons. McCready took her older son Zander from her mother and the boys legal guardian, Gayle Inge, in late 2011. She fled to Arkansas without permission over what she called child abuse fears. Authorities eventually found McCready hiding in a residence without permission and took the boy into custody. She and her boyfriend David Wilson had a son, Zayne, in April of 2012. The older son has a different father. In May 2010, she was hospitalized briefly after police responded to an overdose call at a home in North Fort Myers, Fla., owned by her mother. This followed a stint on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew. In 2004, she was charged with obtaining the painkiller OxyContin fraudulently at a pharmacy. She pleaded guilty and was placed on three years probation. She violated the probation with a drunken driving arrest in May 2005. Then she attempted suicide in July 2005, overdosed in September 2005 and slit her wrists again in December 2008. Also that year, McCready was charged in Arizona with hindering prosecution and unlawful use of transportation. Those charges stemmed from an alleged attempt in June 2005 to purchase two high performance boats, but she claimed she was trying to stop a con man. Growing up in Fort Myers, she took seven years of private vocal lessons and later sang in karaoke bars. After getting her recording contract, she did concert appearances with top country stars including George Strait, Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson. Birthday Youre the type of person who is gifted with an ability to make friends easily. This splendid quality is likely to be further enhanced in the year ahead. Your circle of intimates is likely to be enlarged. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A certain amount of risk may be required in a matter that you manage for others. If your approach is sane and logical, you can minimize the caprices of fortune. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) When working with someone close to you, both of you will have to watch your tempers. Unfortunately, neither one of you is likely to be sold on the others input. Aries (March 21-April 19) Although you might have plenty of reason to criticize a co-worker, youd be smart to keep your mouth shut. Seek out reasons to praise this person instead. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Your possibilities for gain look exceptionally encouraging, yet there is a strong chance youll negate these opportunities through unwise action. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Being overly anxious to gratify your ambitions could make you be a bit too pushy if youre not careful. Objectives can be reached easily if youre less aggressive. Cancer (June 21-July 22) In order to protect your interests, you might act in a manner that looks to be too self-serving. If you want to ensure your rights, watch out for everybody elses as well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Spending lots of money will not guarantee that youll have a good time. In fact, just the opposite could be true. Youre likely to have a better day if you budget your funds wisely. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although you can do rather well in competitive involvements, you must be extremely selective regarding the tactics you employ. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Its easy for someone to say something to you that could be misinterpreted. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Try not to become too demanding concerning an involvement with a chum. Be more concerned about your contribution. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Should a complication arise in an arrangement that requires teamwork, both you and your allies will have to try to accommodate one another through compromise. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Go slowly when making an adjustment to something that could affect your work or career. Taking small, safe steps is better than going for one huge, blind leap.

In 1983, 13 people were shot to death at a gambling club in Seattles Chinatown in what became known as the Wah Mee Massacre. (Two men were convicted of the killings and are serving life sentences; a third was found guilty of robbery and assault.) In 1988, Anthony M.

The film is based on the best-selling novel by Canadian author Yann Martel, a globe-trotting writer born in Spain. Country star Mindy McCready dead at 37 Associated PressMindy McCready performs Nov. 14, 2008, in Nashville, Tenn. McCready died Sunday. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Bruce Willis remains a die-hard at the box office. Willis action sequel A Good Day to Die Hard debuted as the weekends top draw with a $25 million debut from Friday to Sunday. The 20th Century Fox release raised its domestic total to $33.2 million since opening Thursday for Valentines Day to get a jump on the long Presidents Day weekend. The movie comes 25 years after the original Die Hard and six years after Live Free or Die Hard, the hit that resurrected the franchise centered on Willis relentless New York City cop John McClane. The previous weekends No. 1 movie, Universals comedy Identity Thief starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, was a close second with $23.4 million to lift its haul to $70.7 million. Debuting at No. 3 with $21.4 million was Relativity Medias romance Safe Haven, starring Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel in an adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel about a woman who flees her abusive husband and takes up with a sensitive widower. Since opening on Valentines Day, Safe Haven has taken in $30.3 million. The Weinstein Co. animated tale Escape from Planet Earth opened at No. 4 with $16.1 million. The movie follows the adventures of aliens captured by the U.S. military. Making a weak debut at No. 6 was the Warner Bros. teen fantasy Beautiful Creatures, which pulled in $7.5 million for the weekend and $10 million since opening Thursday. A Good Day to Die Hard did solid business despite bad reviews for the latest installment, which sends Willis McClane to Moscow in search of his estranged son, an undercover spy who winds up teaming with the old man against Russian bad guys. Overall Hollywood business remained slow, with revenues off for the fourth-straight weekend compared to the same period last year. Domestic business from Friday to Sunday totaled $141 million, down 9.4 percent from the same weekend a year ago, when Safe House and The Vow led the way with about $23 million each. Associated PressBruce Willis as John McClane, left, Jai Courtney as his son Jack, center and Sebastian Koch as Komarov are pictured in a scene from A Good Day to Die Hard. New Die Hard scores $25M TodaysHOROSCOPE Associated Press LOS ANGELES In mathematical terms, divide the circumference of the world by its diameter, and you have pi. In Hollywood terms, add a United Nations mix of ingredients and you have the blockbuster Life of Pi. With 11 Academy Awards nominations second only to Lincoln with 12 and the sort of global box-office receipts normally reserved for superheroes, Life of Pi is one of the most unusual megahits ever to hit the bigscreen. Approaching $600 million at the box office worldwide, the film is by far the top-grosser among the nine best-picture nominees. Life of Pi has action, suspense and spectacle, but its a thoughtful, contemplative, internalized film, a philosophical and even cryptic story that touched something in the worldwide psyche resulting in business in the realm of more traditional Hollywood hits such as The Hunger Games, Men in Black 3 and Brave. Though backed by 20th Century Fox, the film has an international sensibility that Life of Pi director Ang Lee hopes will gradually become part of everyday business in Hollywood, which has a long history of telling tales even overseas ones with an American perspective. Its a global movie culture. The mainstream cinematic language was largely set up by Hollywood, Americans, therefore its American. Some European directors, but it was an American spirit, Lee said. I think the film language thats established here, thats the biggest obstacle when you try to do something different. You know, the world views things differently. They have different life experiences. As does the talent behind Life of Pi. The film is based on the best-selling novel by Canadian author Yann Martel, a globe-trotting writer born in Spain. Lee grew up in Taiwan, went to film school at New York University and has become one of Hollywoods most eclectic filmmakers, turning his martial-arts epic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon into a critical and commercial smash and winning the best-director Oscar for Brokeback Mountain. Along with Lee, the films Oscar-nominated collaborators include American screenwriter David Magee, Canadian composer Mychael Danna, Chilean cinematographer Claudio Miranda and Indian lyricist Bombay Jayashri. The films largely Indian cast is led by newcomer Suraj Sharma as teenage Pi Patel and Irrfan Khan as adult Pi, with French superstar Gerard Depardieu and British actor Rafe Spall co-starring. Every big movie doesnt need to be American. This movie had virtually nothing American about it, said Gitesh Pandya, who runs the website Boxofficeguru.com. Life of Pi follows the spiritual journey of an Indian youth who creates his own multicultural, interdenominational world view by embracing Hindu, Islamic and Christian beliefs and practices. Pi Patels faith is terribly tested after hes shipwrecked on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY18, 2013 B7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Erma Bombeck said, My theory on housework is, if the item doesnt multiply, smell, catch fire or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you? At the bridge table, if someone makes a smelly play, even if the cards do not instantly catch fire, you should care. Try to work out what is happening and what you can do to stop your opponents score from multiplying. In this deal, South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade nine. How should East plan the defense? North was right to jump to three no-trump. With no singleton or void and insufficient points to think about a slam, just go for the nine-trick game. South starts with eight top tricks: three spades and five clubs. He needs to get a heart trick, but if the opponents take their heart ace and shift to diamonds, they might be able to take four tricks there for down one. Declarers best shot is to win the first trick with his spade king, cross to the dummy, and call for a heart. If East is napping and plays low, South gains his ninth winner and can claim. However, East should notice things are looking bad for his side. The spade-nine lead was top of nothing, marking declarer with the three high spades. Given dummys club winners, he is almost home. South is surely trying to sneak his ninth trick. East must dive in with his heart ace and shift to the diamond two. Here, that works perfectly for the defense.

She has been married for 10 years and has two school-age children. Due to her husbands work transfers, Mattie twice was left alone with the children for several months while she tried to sell the house and her husband moved to the new location. The first time it happened, things worked out OK, but the second time, Mattie started drinking quite heavily. We didnt find out until she had seizures, lost a lot of weight and ended up in the hospital close to death with severe liver damage. She pulled out of it, but now we worry she might be in the same situation. We visited her over the holidays and suspect she has started drinking again. She also seems very depressed. Her husband doesnt seem to recognize the problem. As parents, do we get involved? If so, do we confront Mattie or talk to her husband? Terrified for Our Daughter Dear Terrified: Please dont be afraid to speak to Mattie if you think she is drinking again. It is a serious matter, both physically and emotionally, and needs to be addressed. You also should speak to her husband. He may be doing more than you realize, or he may be in denial or completely oblivious. Contact Al-Anon (al-anon.alateen.org) for assistance and suggestions. Dear Annie: When my mother was dying of cancer, she chose to die at home and not at my pious sisters house. My sister resented this and made only brief visits during Moms final days. The day the hospice nurse said Mom would probably die within hours, my sister stopped by and then left for a weeks planned vacation. We postponed the funeral until she returned, and she showed up to the visitation in a souvenir T-shirt. After the funeral, Sis, as executor, didnt want my brother or me to go through Moms possessions. Instead, she had an auction, and we had to bid on closed boxes. Many of the things we know belonged to Mom did not show up, and somehow, my sisters name got on the deed to the family farm. There has been no accounting of the income from the auction, and when we asked, Sis became angry. The final straw was that my mother wrote a personal letter to me but did not get around to mailing it. Sis found it, made copies and passed it out to everyone but me. I would like the original, but Sis says, Finders, keepers. Sis now wants us to get together and pretend there are no problems. This is putting my Christian attitude to the test. Should I turn a very bruised cheek and pretend all is well for the sake of family unity? Confused in Missouri Dear Missouri: Your sister certainly has been less than forthcoming, and the business with the personal letter is rather nasty. Did your mother have an attorney? If so, there should be an accounting of where the money went and what your sister was entitled to as executor. But you may need to sue in order to get the information, so decide what its worth to you. It is likely to cause a permanent estrangement, and you still may not get what you are hoping for: your sisters remorse and an apology. Our condolences. Dear Annie: Want To Do the Right Thing wants to celebrate his parents 50th anniversary but cant afford the restaurant and wants guests to pay for their own meals. We all want things we cannot afford. Most parents would not enjoy knowing their children are depriving themselves for a big party. Instead, arrange for a nice family photo that would be treasured. Then take your parents out to a lovely lunch or dinner. R. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Its one thing to learn the facts, the figures, the history, the details. Nancy Smith wants her students to think. She wants them to reason, to debate, to offer an opinion and back it up. Whether those students are in her Advanced Placement literature class at Citrus High School or students who struggle to keep up, Smith encourages them to embrace education rather than dread it. CHS junior Taylor Harrison gets the point. P AT F AHERTY Staff writerWith the Crystal River nuclear plant retired and two old coal burners being phased out, Duke Energy will soon be looking for more local juice. And its first choice is natural gas, which has become the power industrys choice for meeting new electricity needs. Were going to need power in 2018, said Alex Glenn, president of Duke Energys operations in Florida. Our option is natural gas. He said it would be a 1,200megawatt combined-cycle nat ural gas plant similar to the Paul L. Bartow Power Plant. The Bartow plant, near St. Petersburg, was originally the site of an oil-fired steam plant. The 1,260megawatt natural gas plant took about 2.5 years to build. It is fed by a pipeline from Alabama running through the Gulf of Mexico. Duke Energy was one of the original developers of the pipeline. In 2018, we need to have the plant online, Glenn said, speaking with the Chronicle Editorial Board last week. We need to start the RFP (request for proposals) this year. The company will also look at purchasing replacement power in the marketplace. Glenn said the Public Service Commission would need to make its determination in 2014, with a timetable to start construction in 2015. Progress Energy Florida previously informed the PSC it planned to build a new 875megawatt natural gas plant in 2016 on an undisclosed location. Glenn said the company is reviewing a number of potential plant locations in several counties, including Citrus, and is considering both existing power plant sites and new sites. We have an obligation to select the most cost-effective site for our customers, Glenn said. Were really focusing on the best site from an overall cost perspective and ability to build it in our INSIDE FEBRUARY 18, 2013 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOL. 118 ISSUE 195 50 CITRUS COUNTY NASCAR: Danica Patrick wins Daytona pole /B1 LOCAL NEWS: Red Carpet Community members turn out to support fundraiser./ Page A9www.chronicleonline.com WORLD NEWS: Papal prayer Pope Benedict XVI blesses the faithful. / Page A10 OPINION: EDITORIAL, PAGE A8 We applaud the courage of Lecanto High School officials.

SIDIBE Staff writerIt was a harrowing three days for Dr. Jeff Wallis and his staff at Advanced Gastroenterology in Meadowcrest. The week before last, one of his staff members became a target of relentless phone calls from scam artists (presumably from overseas India, perhaps), initially on her personal phone. However, the calls began at the Crystal River-area office and escalated quickly both in tenor and quantity. Wallis estimated one day there were more than 100 calls, and the calls became threats and tied up all of the businesss lines.

Become our fan @ facebook.com/citruscounty chronicle and leave your comment on our Question of the Week post. Our newest county commissioner Scott Adams is sure making noise at commission meetings. What do you think? Question of the Week Karl La Follette Spending must grind to a screeching halt! Reduce all purchase caps to $250. All purchases above $250 dollars should need written approval. So refreshing to hear reality from a business point of view from Scott. This is a crisis facing this county for years to come. EVERY PENNY OF TAX payer money is so precious now.This is a wake up call to any County Employee with the power to make purchases. You are under the watch full of Mr. Scott Adams. I feel blindsided of the outright ignorance of people spending above their means! Buffoons in a governmental position is a great analogy. I feel there needs to be more open town meetings to get some ideas flowing. There seems to be a backup in the plumbing of the county government. CJ Dixon The fact is the momentum of spending in our government, at all levels, must come down to the constraints of the times. Citrus has had a huge reality check from Duke. It is time to make some very hard budget decisions at the county level. Scotts frustration is understandable. Further this kind of open discussion is not harmful to businesses that are looking at Citrus. This shows that we are trying to deal with this situation and not with new revenue sources. New revenue sources is not the answer that attracts new businesses. I support the open discussion. That money is OUR money. Every government employee should safeguard the limited assets. All spending needs to be addressed. All spending should always be emergency or only when absolutely needed, not a penny more. Should have been that way before the Duke crisis. Gary Wilton Keep the pressure on them Scott,hang tuf,you will have more help in the next election,the citizens of Citrus Co. are getting sick of the good ole boys and their spending.

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerCitrus County will find out on Tuesday how much value it has with Hernando County in future transportation planning. Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the group that represents its countys interests to the Florida Department of Transportation, will hear from FDOT District 7 officials about possible benefits by merging its MPO with Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). If it gives us a better voice, why not? MPO Chairman Wayne Dukes told a Hernando Todayreporter recently. Dukes indicated Hernando County shares an interest with Citrus County in promoting the proposed extension of the Suncoast Parkway through to Red Level as it would become a major north-south route. Dukes also observed that the FDOT likely foresees smaller counties having more influence when competing for state funds by grouping together and clarifying transportation project goals, also known as thinking regionally. The TPO reached out to Hernandos MPO after studying surrounding counties and finding Hernando to be the best fit. The TPO made this move because it received a letter in November from FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad that it needed MPO status, a greater voice in regional transportation planning, as 2010 U.S. Census data designated Homosassa Springs, Beverly Hills and Citrus Springs as an urbanized area by population growth. However, rather than step up from a TPO to an MPO, Citrus County was urged by the state to join with an adjacent existing MPO to streamline the state structure. If a newly urbanized area is identified, a MPO must be designated to represent it; it should be a neighboring MPO, according to the FDOT. A challenge will lie in the number of seats and who sits in them on the merged MPO. Currently, Hernando County MPO has six voting members: five representing the county and one representing Brooksville. The TPO has seven members: two representing Inverness, two representing Crystal River and three representing the county. By proposed apportionment, the merged MPO would have 11 members, but Hernando County would have six of the seats with the same representatives as before the merger. Citrus, however, would be reduced to five seats: three representing Citrus County, one representing Inverness and one representing Crystal River. This is because Hernando County represents 55 percent of the combined population, while Citrus share is 45 percent. Hernandos population is 172,778 and Citrus is 141,236. According to FDOTs schedule, apportionment should be adopted by Feb. 26. The transmittal of the plan with resolutions should take place by April 1 for the governor to reapportion the MPO, thereby approving the merger.

M IKE W RIGHT Staff writer LECANTO W hen Rock Crusher Elementary Schools doors first opened 22 years ago, Jamie Lewis was there to welcome students. At that time she was guidance secretary and had already been with the school district for 10 years at Lecanto Primary School. Lewis is one of those people who volunteers when the principal needs help, and thats how she found herself as data secretary this year while keeping her guidance duties. Shes a hard worker and will do whatever is necessary, Rock Crusher Principal John Weed said. Lewis is also a little shy. So she was stunned when chosen the Citrus County School Districts 2013 School-Related Employee of the Year. I was totally shocked, Lewis said. Lewis excelled as guidance secretary. When the data secretary retired and the district didnt post the job, Lewis found herself holding down both duties. That was very overwhelming to me, she said. I was not a data person at all. I was like a deer in the headlights. The district has helped me so much. Working in an elementary school means everyone, not just teachers, are involved with students. Lewis has participated in Halloween parties and the school talent show. And she helps out in other ways. Lewis has breakfast lunchroom duty and works with children in small reading groups. I do things that are little out of my comfort zone, she said. The kids called me Miss Jamie. We have so much fun around here. Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. Miss Jamie a favorite at Rock Crusher Elementary MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Rock Crusher Elementary Schools Jamie Lewis was recently named the 2014 Citrus County School District School Related Employee of the Year. C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerThe countys long-term goal in introducing alternate assessments is to drive the millage rate down, the commission chairman told a group of residents last week. The intent in the long term is to lower the ad valorem side, said Commission Chairman Joe Meek, speaking to members of the Citrus County Council (CCC), a not-for-profit, nonpartisan consortium of homeowner associations, civic groups and environmental groups. The issue that we have immediately is the shortfall that we are encountering, so it cannot be completely revenue neutral right now. Meek was responding to a question by Gail Jannarone of Crystal River about municipal services taxing and benefit units. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is going forward with MSTUs and MSBUs as property tax revenues decline because of the drop in home values. In addition, the BOCC faces another shortfall from Progress EnergyDuke, the countys largest taxpayer, which refused to pay its total tax bill, leaving the budget $16 million in the hole. Specifically, Jannarone asked about the county imposing MSTUs, an ad valorem tax levy to cover the cost of providing a service or improvement based on taxable value. At the last meeting of the BOCC, the board authorized a consultant to develop an MSTU for road patrol services, in addition to two MSBUs for road improvements and fire protection services. MSBUs are shared cost assessments, while MSTUs are property assessments. While the TUs and BUs ultimately should drive down the millage rate, Meek said, I dont think that can happen right away. It has to be a gradual slide. Meek said he did not want to give the misconception the TUs and BUs would be revenue neutral. What were going to try to do is cut costs where we can but also look at stabilizing long-term revenue, Meek said. But the ultimate goal is to drive the millage rate down. Meek gave Marion County, with a low millage rate, as an example. But they have TUs and BUs to supplement that. So right now were paying double duty, Jannarone observed. Ill push forward to lower the ad valorem side, Meek said. It just cant be revenue neutral right now. Meek addressed many other issues raised by CCC members. The CCC has invited a county commissioner to each monthly meeting to take questions. Theodora Rusnak, CCC president, said the CCC would like to host a public forum about the alternate sources of revenue.

Joe Meek chairman, Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. C HARLES L AWRENCE Special to the ChronicleIn January, fingerstyle guitar wizard and Citrus County resident Richard Gilewitz traveled to Tasmania (pop. 512,000) to bring his unique playing style to people living down under. This year was Gilewitzs third trip to the island state off the southern tip of Australia. The first year, local guitar hero Steve Gadd brought me there because of my connection to legendary fingerstyle guitarist John Fahey. ... John toured and recorded down there and put out a record, Live In Tasmania. These days, Steve Gadd heard through the grapevine that I was coming to New Zealand and invited me to Tasmania to revisit Johns recording, Gilewitz said. When touring Tasmania this year, Gilewitz performed at two music festivals, the Cygnet Folk Festival where he was a headliner and, the more avant-garde festival, Mona Foma. The trip to Tasmania wasnt without incident: my $8,000 guitar was destroyed on the trip. Qantas Airlines did the right thing by me and within a week of my getting the paperwork in, Qantas started paying for another guitar to be built for me and put me in first class on my way back. They were magnificent. Having some time off between festivals, Gilewitz traveled to the far reaches of Tasmania to do some sightseeing. When he and a friend got to a remote beach, they found a woman sitting on a beach chair and when they approached her she said, Hi Richard. I enjoyed your show at Cygnet. Thats Tasmania. Even though its 7 hours from end to end, everyone knows each other, Gilewitz said. For touring and private lesson information, Richard Gilewitz can be found at www.richard gilewitz.com. Guitarist Gilewitz brings his strings to Tasmania Special to the Chronicle Local resident and guitarist Richard Gilewitz recently toured Tasmania.

but did not like the response he got he was told they couldnt really do anything about it. That is not an adequate response, Wallis said, noting his practice is an important business in the community and he urgently needed help. Enter sheriffs Detective Craig Fass, who had recently experienced similar harassment via calls from Jamaica. Fass three or four days of threats and harass ment happened in December. A call came to my cell phone and they said something about me expecting a package from UPS, Fass said. He was indeed expecting a package from UPS, but he told the caller to call him back. When the call came in later, this time the caller said Fass won the lottery. I knew it was a scam then, because Craig doesnt win anything, not the lottery, he said. Fass said he told the caller he was a law enforcement officer and the call was bogus. That was when things turned ugly. Fass said the man knew his address and threatened his familys well-being. Its a nuisance, but you have to ignore it, especially when they are calling from overseas, Fass said. He said this type of harassing scam is new to law enforcement in this county and therefore, realistically, difficult to pursue. He said even the international police agency Interpol is unlikely to commit a lot of its resources chasing ghost callers. Fass has a few tips for businesses and individuals faced with these sorts of calls: When you get a call about winning the lottery, dont believe it. If a caller leaves a message and number, never call them back, because it is an easy way to trace your number and maybe other information. Calls originating from overseas, even if they have U.S. area codes, will have a 1, 0 or a combination of numbers before the area code. Do a search of suspicious numbers online. You can usually find negative or positive information about the business affiliated with the number. Calls to Wallis office have stopped as of last Monday and he says he is happy the disruption of his business is over.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

SCAM Continued from Page A1 Lawmakers gift ban might get a few tweaks Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Sen. Tom Lee says hes heard all the complaints about the gift ban law passed seven years ago: Some say its made it more expensive for lawmakers to do their jobs. Others say it led to the abuse of political committees to skirt the ban. They say its awkward for lawmakers to even accept a cup of coffee. Its been held responsible for everything except 9/11, said Lee, whose push to end the influence of money in the legislative process led to the law that bans lawmakers and their staffs from accepting anything from lobbyists and the groups they represent. Lee was Senate president when the law took effect and left the chamber later that year. Now back in the Senate, he wants to tweak the law to address issues some lawmakers say stifle routine interaction with constituents. Were trying to do the best we can in an imperfect process, Lee said. Lee plans to submit an amendment to a Senate ethics bill (SB 2) to allow some exemptions to the gift ban, such as allowing lawmakers to attend functions by an organization and to accept food and beverages of nominal value. The gift ban passed by a wide margin in 2005, but there have been some regrets. Sen. Arthenia Joyner, who voted for the ban as a House member, believes it goes too far, often to the point of silliness. People really sometimes take umbrage and get offended and say, What? I cant give you a cup of coffee? said Joyner, D-Tampa. Legal notices in todays Citrus County Chronicle 000DM0L Meeting Notices . . . . . . . B12 Foreclosure Sale/Action Notices . . . .

time frame. The site should be around 100 acres. Factors in the selection will be transmission line access, access to water and proximity to a natural gas line. Glenn explained the low price of natural gas plus the lower operating and maintenance costs of a gas plant compared to a nuclear plant were factors in the decision to retire the nuclear plant north of Crystal River. Bartow would be the only plant similar in size to what we are looking at building, Progress Energy spokesman Sterling Ivy said.A natural gas plant will employ between 50 to 80 full-time people once completed.During construction, there could be 800 to 1,000 people working to build the plant, usually through contractors. He said a good cost estimate for the project is not available, since so much depends on location and whether a site has to be purchased. Duke CEO Jim Rogers As we retire Crystal River (nuclear plant) and look at the future, we see CR 1 and 2 will be retired in the 2015 to 2017 timeframe, Duke Energy Chairman, President and CEO Jim Rogers said. When you think about those retirements in a connective way, its clear we need additional capacity. In my judgment, gasfired combined-cycle plants are the best capacity. Rogers made the comments Wednesday during Dukes fourth-quarter earnings call. He thinks there will be an adequate supply of natural gas for a long time, with a decade or two of good prices. We believe that building gas in Florida, even though we are significantly dependant on gas, is still a good thing to do going forward, he said. Levy County We believe new nuclear in the long term is in the best interest of the state, Glenn said regarding the future of the planned Levy County nuclear plant. We are focused on getting the operational license from the government. We are focused on that because we believe it is a valuable asset to have. The plant would be a two-reactor complex with an estimated cost of $19 billion to $24 billion. He said it is scheduled to be operational in 2024-25.

DUKE Continued from Page A1 Submerged debris threatens tourism Associated PressMANTOLOKING, N.J. On the surface, things look calm and placid. Just beneath the waterline, however, its a different story. Cars and sunken boats. Patio furniture. Pieces of docks. Entire houses. A grandfather clock, deposited in a marsh a mile from solid land. Hot tubs. Tons of sand. All displaced by superstorm Sandy. We did a cleanup three weeks ago. Then when we went back the other day, you could still see junk coming up in the wash, said Paul Harris, president of the New Jersey Beach Buggy Association, which helps take care of beaches on which the group goes surf fishing. They go and clean it again, and two days later, you have the same thing again. Theres nothing you can do about it; you cant vacuum the ocean. Coastal areas of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut are racing to remove untold tons of debris from waters hardest hit by the Oct. 29 storm before the summer swimming and boating seasons begin two of the main reasons people flock there each year and the underpinning of the regions multibillion-dollar tourist industry. The sunken debris presents an urgent safety issue. Swimmers could cut themselves on submerged junk, step on one of thousands of boardwalk nails ripped loose, or suffer neck or spinal injuries diving into solid objects. Boats could hit debris, pitching their occupants overboard, or in severe cases, sinking. The cleanup wont be easy, fast or cheap. The amount of debris that needs to be removed is mind-boggling, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said, ticking off the statistics in his state: 1,400 vessels sunk, broken loose or destroyed during the storm. In just one shore town alone, Mantoloking, 58 buildings were washed into Barnegat Bay, along with eight vehicles, and a staggering amount of sand carried from the ocean beaches into the bay. Everything you can imagine is sitting in our waterways, he said. Barnegat Bay is likely to have some no-go zones in place for at least part of the spring and summer as cleanup work progresses. Big Al Wutkowski, a locally famous stripedbass fisherman who volunteers as the Barnegat Bay Guardian for the American Littoral Society environmental group, is worried about what still lurks beneath the waves. When people start putting their boats back in the water in April, I know theyre going to start hitting stuff, he said. Associated Press A home sits Feb. 5 in the middle of Barnegat Bay, washed into the Bay from Mantoloking N.J. during superstorm Sandy. States hit hard by Sandy are gearing up to remove tons of debris from waterways, including houses, vehicles, sunken boats, furniture, pieces of piers, decks and bulkheads all of which must be removed before the summer swimming and boating season.

Page A8 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2013 Pork is what you make of it Recently I wrote a letter critical of Sen. Rubio and Rep. Nugents stand against the Sandy Storm Aid Bill. A recent letter from Jeff Bauman took me to task over it and praised our representatives for not wasting our hard-earned tax dollars on pork projects. My first question is, What is pork? Is a bridge to nowhere in Alaska pork? How about pallets of millions of hard-earned American tax dollars being sent to Iraq to hand out on the street to buy friends, as reported on Minutes? Mr. Bauman references some of what he called pork: Roof repairs on the Smithsonian Institution, dredging projects, repairs to Amtrak, etc. To one person they are pork projects; to many others they are critical public works projects. Should they be in an aid package? Maybe yes, maybe no, but that is the way our Congress has done in for many years. Speaking of pork, was it pork for the federal aid dollars for Katrina to go toward rebuilding the Louisiana Superdome? It is for the private use of a money-making sports team. I would venture to say to sports fans who just enjoyed the Super Bowl it was well-spent money. To those who are still waiting to get their homes rebuilt maybe not so much. How about we push for a constitutional amendment that no disaster aid bill can be passed unless all members of Congress agree that there is no pork? That way we will really be protecting our hardearned tax dollars. Of course, that means the bill will most likely never get passed, lives will be lost, people will be homeless, the economy will crash for the area, jobs will be lost but there will be no pork. Congress has taken care of its pet projects since it was created. I personally do not like it, but I am more than willing to see American tax dollars being spent in the United States to help Americans in need than wasted on our constant attempt to buy friends in foreign countries or line politicians pockets. Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills WASHINGTON I n the 12 months we have to steel ourselves for the next State of the Union spectacle, let us count the ways that this spawn of democratic Caesarism presidency-worship has become grotesque. It would be the most embarrassing ceremony in the nations civic liturgy were the nation still capable of being embarrassed by its puerile faith in presidential magic. The Constitution laconically requires only that the president shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient. Nothing requires from time to time to be construed as every damn year. Informing and recommending need not involve todays tawdry ritual of wishful thinking by presidents unhinged from political reality, and histrionics by their audiences. And must we be annually reminded that all presidents think that everything they want is necessary and expedient? Some of the blame for this yearly night of nonsense goes to Ronald Reagan. Most, however, goes to Woodrow Wilson. Reagan, who loved entertainment, pioneered the regrettable practice of stocking the House gallery with (usually) admirable people. Wilson, who loved himself, had, as professors often do, a theory, which caused him to reverse Thomas Jeffersons wholesome reticence. When the Founding generation was developing customs and manners appropriate to a republic, George Washington and John Adams made the mistake of going to Congress to do their constitutional duty of informing and recommending. Jefferson, however, disliked the sound of his voice such an aversion is a vanishingly rare presidential virtue and considered it monarchical for the executive to lecture the legislature, the lofty instructing underlings. So he sent written thoughts to Capitol Hill, a practice good enough for subsequent presidents until Wilson in 1913 delivered his message orally, pursuant to the progressives belief in inspirational and tutelary presidents. It is beyond unseemly, it is anticonstitutional for senior military officers and, even worse, Supreme Court justices, to attend these political rallies where, with metronomic regularity, legislators of the presidents party leap to their feet to whinny approval of every bromide and vow. Members of the other party remain theatrically stolid, thereby provoking brow-furrowing punditry about why John Boehner did not rise (to genuflect? salute? swoon?) when Barack Obama mentioned this or that. Tuesday night, the justices, generals and admirals, looking as awkward as wallflowers at a prom, at least stayed seated. Except for Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito, who stayed away. They missed a clunker of a speech, although the tedium was not much worse than usual, and was redeemed by clarifying three things. First, Obamas declaration that nothing in his long list of proposed spending should should? increase our deficit by a single dime means there should be commensurate tax increases. Second, now that he has proclaimed that government must keep the promises weve already made, only the uneducable can still believe he will consider entitlement reforms. Third, by saying spending cuts under the sequester would be harsh and would devastate domestic programs, he made applesauce of those two words: The cuts would remove only $85 billion from this years almost $3.6 trillion budget, and over a decade they would cut just $1.2 trillion from projected spending of $46 trillion. And spending this year would still be well above the post-1945 norm as a percentage of gross domestic product. Although Obama is a self-proclaimed respecter of science, he does not stoop to empiricism. Understandably. Data are unkind to his assertion that climate change is causing storms to become more severe and drought to become more prevalent. Measured by accumulated cyclone energy, hurricane and other tropical cyclone activity is at a threedecade low, and Nature journal reports that globally there has been little change in drought over the past 60 years. Wilsons stroke prevented him from delivering the State of the Union orally in 1919 and 1920, but Warren Harding, not known for a strong sense of propriety, continued the deplorable practice in 1921 and 1922. Calvin Coolidge did so in 1923, four months after becoming president, but not a second time. Wilsons practice was, however, made the norm by the man who had first come to Washington as Wilsons assistant secretary of the Navy, Franklin Roosevelt. State of the Union addresses are now integral to the apotheosis of the presidency. If government is going to be omniprovident, modern presidents are going to be omnipresent, and politics is going to be infantile. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost.com.

The Panthers coach and athletic director recently faced the unenviable position of putting up with business as usual with the heavy handed politics of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) or doing what they think is best for their student athletes even though the decision might invite criticism. Last week, they chose to become independent in football, which means they cannot compete in the state playoffs. The dilemma for Lecanto began in January when the FHSAA granted two 7A schools (1,872 to 2,240 student population) their petitions to play down in 6A competition. Ocala Forest and Gainesville High were allowed to join Lecanto, Citrus, Lake Weir and Vanguards District 6A-5. Gainesville has a student population of 1,935 and Forest 2,080. Lecantos student population is 1,745, and because of local redistricting, will be dropping to a level equivalent to a 5A classification (1,049 to 1,573). Citrus student population is 1,582 and is also expected to drop. The problem with district classifications is two-fold: size and geography. The schools want to play other schools similar in enrollment and close enough to control travel costs and to build competitive rivalries. The FHSAA usually tries to place schools in districts within those classes by geographic location. Admittedly, placing Gainesville and Forest in 7A-2 with schools in Tallahassee was a ridiculous proposition, and its understandable they petitioned to move. The FHSAA could have easily avoided the situation by placing Forest, Gainesville, Gainesville Buchholz and West Port in their own district in 7A. Those four schools would have been less than an hours drive from one another and all are relatively the same size. Instead, (Ocala) West Port is placed in the 8A class and must travel to Jacksonville for all its district games, while Gainesville and Forest get to play schools much smaller in size. The FHSAA has a tough task, but it makes it tougher on itself when it allows hardship petitions that have holes in them while throwing logic out the window. If it is going to allow borderline schools to move up and down classifications, then it might as well design the districts with geography as its primary criterion. Then we might see a more logical district that includes Citrus, Lecanto, Dunnellon, Crystal River, Weeki Wachee, Nature Coast, Central and Hernando. These schools are all short drives from each other and the games would be highly competitive and create natural rivalries, as large contingents of fans could easily travel from contest to contest. Instead, we have perennial power Gainesville (ranked No. 1 most of last year) getting to play in a lower classification against schools it handpicks to beat up on. We applaud the courage Lecanto officials showed by saying weve had enough and are striking out on our own. If more schools would follow suit, it might force the FHSAA to be more fair and equitable in the decisions it makes when creating district classifications. THE ISSUE: Lecanto becomes independent in football.OUR OPINION: Best move available.

Sometimes shes a really hard teacher, Taylor said. We have to think. For Smith, a 33-year Florida educator with the past three years at Citrus High, those efforts were recognized the highest way when she was named the 2014 Citrus County Schools Teacher of the Year. I was stunned, she said. It was quite an honor. Her principal, Dale Johns, wrote to the teacher-of-the-year committee that Smith reaches out to all students. It was obvious in her first month at Citrus that she was a high energy professional dedicated to her students and her discipline, Johns wrote. Her students quickly recognized her knowledge and commitment to them and the program, and they responded positively. Test scores in Advanced Placement Literature and Composition have risen 21 percent since her arrival, Johns said. And he noted Smith does all she can to help students prepare for college. To this end, she devotes an enormous amount of time helping them with their college applications and essays, and trying to mold them into students who can write on a college level, Johns said. Smith said educators should set a high bar for students so they can succeed in college and a career beyond that. If you aim high and fall short, youre better off than aiming down low and achieving it, she said. Smith is a teacher who supports state-mandated college-readiness classes, even for students who say they have no plans for college. She said a 17-year-old may have different thinking at 20 years old, and its the schools responsibility to make sure that student is prepared. What if you change your mind? What if you decide later to go college? she said. Goals change. She added: We have to be wiser than they are. They have no idea what they want to do.

Makers Mark wont lower mark LOUISVILLE, Ky. After backlash from customers, the producer of Makers Mark bourbon is reversing a decision to cut the amount of alcohol in bottles of its famous whiskey. Rob Samuels, Makers Marks chief operating officer, said Sunday it is restoring the alcohol volume of its product to its historic level of 45 percent, or 90 proof. Last week, it said it was lowering the amount to 42 percent, or 84 proof, because of a supply shortage. Weve been tremendously humbled over the last week or so, Samuels, grandson of the brands founder, said of customers reactions.

Bryan Fire Chief Randy McGregor thanked everyone for their prayers for the families of the firefighters who died and for the men who were injured in the blaze that broke out Friday night at an unoccupied Knights of Columbus Hall. An investigation is ongoing into what caused the overnight fire that claimed the lives of Lt. Eric Wallace, 36, and Lt. Gregory Pickard, 54. Firefighters Ricky Mantey Jr., 30, and Mitchel Moran, 21, were in serious but stable condition Sunday at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

Protesters told the Los Angeles Times they didnt support Dorners deadly methods, but objected to police corruption and brutality, and said they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorners death and injuries to innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him. Michael Nam, 30, said it was pretty obvious police had no intention of bringing Dorner in alive.

Foreigners kidnapped in Nigeria BAUCHI, Nigeria Gunmen attacked a camp for a construction company in rural northern Nigeria, killing a guard and kidnapping seven foreign workers from Britain, Greece, Italy, Lebanon and the Philippines, authorities said Sunday, in the biggest kidnapping yet in the region. The attack Saturday night happened in Jamaare, a town in Bauchi state. There, the gunmen first attacked a local prison, burning two police trucks, a state police spokesman said. The gunmen then targeted a workers camp for Lebanese construction company Setraco. The gunmen shot dead a guard at the camp before kidnapping the foreign workers.

No, I dont believe hes qualified, said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. But I dont believe that we should hold up his nomination any further, because I think its (been) a reasonable amount to time to have questions answered. Critics contend Hagel isnt supportive enough of Israel and is unreasonably sympathetic to Iran. Republicans last week held up a confirmation vote but have indicated that they eventually would relent and permit a vote when they return from their break on Feb. 25. Sen. Lindsey Graham, whos led the opposition with McCain to Hagels nomination, said critics were doing our job to scrutinize ... one of the most unqualified, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. But at the end of the day, said Graham, R-S.C., this is the presidents decision. I give him great discretion. I cant believe one Democratic colleague is not upset by this choice enough to speak out. McCain: Hagel not qualified, but dont stall vote Associated PressWASHINGTON A sharply divided Congress isnt likely to jump at President Barack Obamas challenge for quick passage of a mortgage refinancing bill that supporters say could help millions of homeowners save big each year and boost the economy. The proposal is part of a push by Democrats and the White House to help homeowners take advantage of low interest rates as a way to help the housing market recover and to give the economy a shot in the arm. While the bill could gain traction in the Democratic-controlled Senate, it faces a rough road in the GOP-run House, where many Republicans favor scaling back the governments role in the housing market as a way of aiding the economy. Similar versions of the measure died in the House and Senates lame duck sessions last year. The American taxpayers have already sunk $190 billion dollars into the operations of Fannie and Freddie, said Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, a member of the House Financial Services Committee. Its time that we wind their operations down instead of using them as a piggy bank for failed programs that further delay the housing recovery. Many of the nearly 12 million homeowners who have loans through Fannie mae and Freddie mac cant refinance at a lower rate because of red tape and high fees. The bill also would reduce up-front fees that borrowers pay on refinances and eliminate appraisal costs for all borrowers. Twenty Senate Democrats are cosponsors of this years bill, but no Republicans have signed on. Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., filed a House version of the bill which died during the last Congress. He accused Republicans of not wanting to give Obama an election-year boost by passing the measure. The Republican leadership wanted Obama to fail, Welch said. Mortgage refi bill facing tough road in Congress Bombings kill dozens in Iraq Associated PressBAGHDAD Car bombs tore through shopping areas within minutes of each other in mainly Shiite neighborhoods of the Iraqi capital on Sunday, killing at least 37 people and wounding more than 100. The attacks come amid rising sectarian discord in Iraq and appear aimed at shaking Iraqis confidence in the Shiite-led government. The explosions struck at the start of the local work week and primarily targeted outdoor markets. It was the third time this month that attacks have claimed more than 20 lives in a single day. The attacks began with the detonation of a parked car loaded with explosives in the sprawling Shiite district of Sadr City. Two more parked cars later exploded elsewhere in the neighborhood. Simultaneous explosions also hit the southeastern Baghdad neighborhood of al-Amin, where the force of the blasts left behind little except the mangled chassis of two cars. An open-air market in Husseiniya, northeast ofthe capital, and the Kamaliya area in Baghdads eastern suburbs were also hit. Another car bomb exploded near street vendors and a police car in the central commercial district of Karradah. Police and hospital officials provided the death toll, and said more than 130 people were wounded. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they werent authorized to brief reporters.

Patrick wins Daytona 500 pole position Associated PressDAYTONA BEACH Danica Patrick has made history before as a woman and a racer, in Indianapolis and Japan. The spotlight is nothing new. But never has it been this bright before. Patrick won the Daytona 500 pole Sunday, becoming the first woman to secure the top spot for any race in NASCARs premier circuit. Its by far the biggest achievement of her stock-car career. I was brought up to be the fastest driver, not the fastest girl, she said. That was instilled in me from very young, from the beginning. Then I feel like thriving in those moments, where the pressures on, has also been a help for me. I also feel like Ive been lucky in my career to be with good teams and have good people around me. I dont think any of it would have been possible without that. For those reasons, Ive been lucky enough to make history, be the first woman to do many things. I really just hope that I dont stop doing that. We have a lot more history to make. We are excited to do it. Her latest stamp in the history books came with a lap at 196.434 mph around Daytona International Speedway. Patrick went out eighth in the qualifying session, then had to wait about two hours as 37 fellow drivers tried to take her spot. Only four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon even came close to knocking her off. Gordon was the only other driver who topped 196 mph in qualifying. He locked up the other guaranteed spot in next weeks season-opening Daytona 500. Its great to be a part of history with Danica being on the pole, said Gordon, who joked that at least he was the fastest guy. I think we all know how popular she is, what this will do for our sport. Congratulations to her. Proud to be on there with her. The rest of the field will be set in duel qualifying races Thursday. However the lineup unfolds, all drivers will line up behind Patricks No. 10 Chevrolet SS. And she knows her latest achievement will mean more public relations work. The routine is nothing new for Patrick, who was the first woman to lead laps in the Indianapolis 500. She finished third in 2009, the highest finish in that illustrious race for a woman. And she became the only woman to win an IndyCar race when she did it in Japan in 2008. Hardly anyone witnessed that victory.

Jones is attending the Braves camp as a guest instructor. Chipper back in camp, but hes not coming back Associated PressKISSIMMEE Chipper Jones was lingering beyond the left-field wall, signing as many autographs as he could, when someone asked the obvious question. Do you miss it yet? Jones was quick with a reply. No, he said, not too much. Jones has reported to camp with the Atlanta Braves, but dont get too excited about seeing No. 10 in that familiar uniform. There are no plans for a comeback. If anything, hes surprised at just how little he misses the game that was such a big part of his life. Hes kept himself more than busy (just check out his Twitter account!), from starting up business ventures to running his ranch, from a new romantic relationship to spending time with his kids, from working the banquet circuit to enjoying the solitude of hunting. Im having fun, Jones said Sunday, while walking across the outfield at Champion Stadium, the spring training home of the Braves. Its kept my mind off things pretty much. I thought this week would probably be a little more difficult than it has been. But, you know, I really havent had the urge to put the uniform on again. That, he went on, lets me know I made the right decision. I had my time. Now, its their time. Jones will be suiting up until Wednesday, helping out the only major league team he ever played for as a special instructor. He still believes he has something to offer, but cringed at all the former teammates jokingly calling him coach. I wouldnt really say Im a coach, Jones said, even as someone else walked by and shouted it at him. Im more of a ... well, I dont know what you would call me. But I dont like being called a coach. I dont think Im quite to that extent yet.

In a weekend filled with the NBAs greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about. Though he hasnt played since the 2002-03 season, Jordans influence still permeates the league and its players. Every kid that wanted to play basketball, that could play, that couldnt play, you tried to emulate Michael Jordan, Heat star Dwyane Wade said. Thats why there will never be another one of him. He the first of his kind. Everything he did was groundbreaking. He did it with so much flare and so much pizazz that even today people are still trying to be like Mike. Jordan won six titles and five MVP awards during a career spent mostly with the Bulls that began in 1984. Jordan was in Houston this weekend, and celebrated his birthday early with a private bash on Friday at the Museum of Fine Arts with guests including LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is so impressed with Jordan that he said hes like a real version of Superman. Be Like Mike was more than a marketing campaign. It was a dream for many of todays players. Hes amazing, Howard said. Hes one of the reasons why we played basketball. He inspired us to do great things. I hear his voice sometimes on commercials, it makes you want to get out there and try to do something. Jordan retired twice before finally leaving the game for good at age 39. Some people wondered this weekend if he could still play in the NBA, despite reaching the age where he qualifies for an AARP card. Wade believes this day will be a time for Jordan to reflect on his storied career and appreciate his family and health. Kind of look back at all the things he did, so many years ago in the NBA that still lives on today, Wade said. What hes been able to do to stay this relevant, in this role, the way he has, is phenomenal.

The night also featured the seasons first run of Pro Figure 8s at Inverness Citrus County Speedway. Neumann Jr., of Inverness, surged from the middle of a 17car field to grab the fifth position after a lap 9 caution, before riding parallel above fellow Inverness driver Steven Hise (fourth place) on lap 11. Neumann, winner of multiple Super Late Model championships and third-place finisher in the Feb. 9 SLM feature, secured the third position by lap 15 and later moved to second on lap 18, with heat winner Roger Blevins, of Largo, occupying the front. Hernandos Smith, meanwhile, started all the way at the back in the 17th position and methodically worked his way up to fourth by lap 20 as Blevins, Neumann, Hise and Smith buffered themselves from the rest of the field and remained in close proximity for the remainder. I was just being patient, knowing I had a long way to go and knowing we had a good car, said Smith, who leads the division in points by scoring a wire-to-wire victory in its Feb. 2 feature. Smith edged out Hise on lap 34 as Neumann continued to pursue Blevins from the inside before Neumann secured the lead and Smith moved to No. 2 ahead of third-place finisher Blevins for good on the penultimate lap.

Merrick hit two clutch shots that led to two pars in a sudden-death playoff and won the Northern Trust Open on Sunday when Charlie Beljan missed a 5-foot par putt on the second extra hole. Merrick, who closed with a 2-under 69, became only the ninth player make this tournament his first PGA Tour victory. It could not have come at a better place. Merrick grew up in Long Beach, attended this event as a kid and went to school down the street at UCLA. I cant put this into words, he said off the 10th green, his eyes welling with tears. Growing up as a kid, coming out here, I just wanted to play this tournament. It was a tough finish for Beljan, famous for having an anxiety attack when he won at Disney late last year. He holed an 18-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole, similar to the theatrics provided last year by Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley, to close with a 4under 67 and wind up in a playoff. He had to make a tough 6foot putt for par on No. 18 on the first playoff hole. Going to the par-4 10th, 315 yards of sheer nerves, Beljan drove long and left, and his chip didnt reach the green. He putted his third shot just above the hole, and watched it slide by on the left for a bogey. Beljan also made bogey on the 10th hole in regulation. The key for Merrick might have been on the par-5 17th in regulation, when he pulled his second shot from a bunker toward the eucalyptus trees, only to find that he had just enough of a gap to go at the green and escape with par. More great recoveries followed in the playoffs. He was well to the right of the 18th fairway, and hit a hard punch shot that rolled just over the back of the green and allowed him to get up-and-down for par. On the second hole, the dangerous 10th, he laid up too far to the right nothing short of a perfectly struck wedge could stay on the green, and he pulled it off, the ball settling 18 feet away. A few inches longer and it would have tumbled into the back bunker. Merrick, who finished on 11under 273, moved to No. 4 in the FedEx Cup and is virtually assured of qualifying for his first World Golf Championship next month at Doral. Fredrik Jacobson missed a 4-foot par putt on the 18th hole that would have put the Swede in a playoff. He wound up with a 69 and tied for third with Charl Schwartzel (70) and Bill Haas (73), who also had chances to win at different stages in their rounds. The final round contained far more drama than anyone imagined at the start of the day, when Haas had a threeshot lead. Six players were separated by one shot going into the final hour at Riviera, and it easily could have been a repeat of that six-man playoff in 2001 in the cold rain. Match Play pairings announced LOS ANGELES Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods will face some familiar players in the opening round of the Match Play Championship. McIlroy, the 23-year-old from Northern Ireland, is the No. 1 seed at Dove Mountain north of Tucson, Ariz. He will play Shane Lowry of Ireland, who got in when Phil Mickelson chose not to play. Woods is the No. 2 and will play Charles Howell III, the first time they have squared off in this format since Woods beat Howell in the quarterfinals of the 1996 U.S. Amateur. Luke Donald, who won the Match Play in 2011, is the No. 3 seed and opens against Marcel Siem of Germany. Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa is the No. 4 seed and will play Richie Ramsay of Scotland. The tournament begins Wednesday.Langer wins ACE Group ClassicNAPLES Bernhard Langer shot a final-round 72 and won his second ACE Group Classic title in three years by one stroke. Langer two-putted from 50 feet on the 18th for par to finish at 12-under 204, ahead of Jay Don Blake at TwinEagles Clubs Talon Course. Langer, who won this tournament in 2011 and was runner-up last year, survived three bogeys and a double bogey. It was his 17th victory on the Champions Tour, and the seventh year he has won at least one tournament. Jiyai Shin wins Australian Open CANBERRA, Australia South Koreas Jiyai Shin won the Australian Womens Golf Open by two shots, finishing with a 1-under 72 to beat world No. 1 Yani Tseng after being tied for the overnight lead with teenage star Lydia Ko. Shin mixed three birdies with two bogeys in a final round battle with Ko and Tseng of Taiwan, and added the Australian title to her two British Opens among 37 professional victories. Kos share of the lead evaporated quickly when she began the final day with a double bogey and bogey. However, the 15-year-old who was born in South Korea and is based in New Zealand fought back to reclaim the joint lead after 13 holes before Shin dismissed the challenge.

Associated PressCHICAGO Brent Seabrook and Jonathan Toews each had a goal and an assist to help the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-2, extending their seasonopening points streak to 15 games. Patrick Sharp also scored for the Blackhawks (12-0-3), who matched the 1984-85 Edmonton Oilers for the second-longest season-opening points streak in NHL history. Chicago is one away from the league record, set by Anaheim in 2006-07. Mike Richards scored two power-play goals in the third period to pull the Kings within one after Chicago had built a 3-0 lead. Blackhawks backup goalie Ray Emery made 25 saves. Penguins 4, Sabres 3BUFFALO, N.Y. Defenseman Paul Martin scored with 2:04 left to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres. Pascal Dupuis had two goals and an assist and Sidney Crosby also scored and set up Martins goal. Pittsburgh (11-5-0) won its third straight and improved to 8-2 in its past 10 to move ahead of idle New Jersey atop the Eastern Conference standings. The Penguins were forced to rally from behind after squandering a 2-0 lead. Dupuis tied the game at 3 by one-timing in Kris Letangs cross-ice feed with 5:17 left. Martin then scored his second of the season when his 40footer deflected in off the stick of Sabres defenseman Christian Ehrhoff in front.Flames 4, Stars 3 DALLAS Steve Begin, Matt Stajan and Roman Horak each scored their first goals of the season in the third period and the Calgary Flames overcame a two-goal deficit to defeat the Dallas Stars 4-3. Begin snapped a 3-3 tie with 9:30 remaining. Michael Cammalleri also scored for Calgary, while Joey MacDonald made 27 saves for his first win in his first start and second appearance overall for the Flames. Cody Eakin, Reilly Smith and Ryan Garbutt scored second-period goals for Dallas. Rangers 2, Capitals 1 NEW YORK Derek Stepans power-play goal early in the third period snapped a tie and completed the New York Rangers rally to a 2-1 victory over the Washington Capitals. It was the only time New Yorks struggling power-play unit connected in the game, but it came at the perfect time and helped snap the Capitals season-high winning streak at three games. Washington, which lost to New York in the second round of last years playoffs, had been 11-5-2 in its last 18 regular-season games against the Rangers. New York improved to 5-1-1 in its past seven. Carl Hagelin tied it for the Rangers in the second period after defenseman John Carlson put Washington ahead in the first. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 27 shots for his seventh win. Braden Holtby was busier for Washington and made 38 saves. Wild 3, Red Wings 2ST. PAUL, Minn. Dany Heatley, Jason Zucker and Torrey Mitchell all scored in the second period to rally the Minnesota Wild over the Detroit Red Wings 3-2. It was Minnesotas first regulation win since Jan. 29 and just the second time it scored at least three goals in regulation over the last nine games. Damien Brunner and Pavel Datsyuk scored for Detroit, which has lost three straight for the first time since March 10-21 of last season. After Heatley snapped a nine-game scoring drought to make it 2-1, Zucker went coast-to-coast and scored his first NHL goal to tie it. Mitchell scored his first goal in a Wild uniform off a faceoff scrum to give Minnesota the lead 30 seconds later.Bruins 3, Jets 2WINNIPEG, Manitoba Brad Marchand scored 36 seconds into the third period to lift the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over Winnipeg.

The Blackhawks won 3-2. Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Theres a buzz about NASCAR and the seasonopening Daytona 500 that has nothing to do with an exploding jet dryer or a well-timed tweet from a driver. The new Gen-6 race car makes its long-awaited debut at Daytona International Speedway, and the success of the 2013 season could depend heavily on its performance. Already, things look good. After all, NASCARs most popular driver has given the Gen-6 a ringing endorsement. This sport is going to be revolutionized again with this car, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said after one of his first full test sessions in the car. Thats the shot in the arm NASCAR is looking for after a 2012 season that saw the quality of the racing criticized at times. Long green-flag runs and a lack of cautions frustrated fans, and that irritated drivers who openly wondered if fans were more interested in wrecking than they were in racing. Behind the scenes, NASCAR was working hard on a new car that would replace the Car of Tomorrow after six years, and hopefully improve the on-track product. It was welcome news to Earnhardt, who won 17 races in the old car but only two after the CoT was introduced during the 2007 season. I struggled with the old car, he said. I think the rest of the car is definitely a step back toward the old, original car we used to have. I think thats going to benefit me in certain areas. The car is really exciting. Im looking forward to it. So is NASCAR, which has worked with manufacturers and teams on both the look of the car and how it drives. The result is a car that resembles what the automakers sell in the showroom and a design that allows fans to tell if the car is a Chevrolet, Ford or Toyota. And just in case a fan wasnt that car savvy, the drivers names and the manufacturer logo will all be on the windshield this year as NASCAR attempts to make the car as big a star as the driver. The cars debut comes Saturday night at Daytona in the Sprint Unlimited exhibition race, where fans can vote on various elements of the race format. It has created interest in Speedweeks, which last year were remembered most for Juan Pablo crashing into a jet dryer loaded with fuel and Brad Keselowski tweeting about it during the lengthy delay to put out the fire and repair the charred track. The fireball put the Daytona 500 in the mainstream spotlight, but the racing that followed failed to entertain a wider audience. Keselowski was thrust onto the national stage with his well-timed tweets and he rode the wave all the way to his first Sprint Cup title. The win over five-time champion Jimmie Johnson was a breakthrough for Keselowski, who grabbed team owner Roger Penske his first title and proved the odd pairing of driver and owner had blossomed into an elite tandem. Now everyone gets to see what Keselowski will do for an encore. NASCAR has forbidden him from using his phone in his car, and hell be hard pressed to outdo his beer-chugging live television interview minutes after clinching the championship. Even harder will be defending his title as the Penske Racing organization left Dodge at the end of the year and goes into this season as a Ford team. Penske is no longer building its own engines, and will now get them from Roush Yates as a customer of Fords flagship team. Keselowski will have a new teammate in Joey Logano, who was replaced at Joe Gibbs Racing by Matt Kenseth in the biggest driver move of the year. Kenseth left Roush Fenway Racing, where hed spent his entire career, to join Gibbs and its volatile driver lineup of Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin. Hamlin was a title contender through the halfway point of the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup title, but he stumbled at Martinsville with a mechanical failure and never recovered. Busch missed the Chase and declared 2012 the absolute worst year of my career after winning just one race across NASCARs three national series. Kenseth was replaced at Roush by two-time Nationwide champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. If Stenhouse wasnt under enough pressure as the replacement for the 2003 Cup champion, hell be under tremendous scrutiny this season as the other half of NASCARs current it couple. Danica Patrick, who is moving to a full Cup schedule this year, told The Associated Press last month that shes dating Stenhouse after she and her husband got a divorce. The Roush organization will also receive attention as fans watch and to see if Carl Edwards can rebound from last years slump. After losing the championship to Tony Stewart on a tie-breaker, Edwards went through a winless 2012 season and failed to make the Chase. And, four-time champion Jeff Gordon will be starting fresh after his controversial close to 2012. He intentionally wrecked Clint Bowyer in Phoenix, triggering a garage-area melee between their crews. Associated Press The new Chevrolet SS racing car is displayed Saturday at Daytona International Speedway, in Daytona Beach, Fla. Chevrolet might have pulled out of NASCAR had the sanctioning body not agreed to redesign race cars and make them more relevant to consumers. NASCAR President Mike Helton and Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick said they had talks with the American automaker that made it clear things needed to change to keep Chevrolet happy. But Mark Reuss, president of General Motors North America, said the auto giant never threatened to walk. NASCAR season arrives with a buzz This sport is going to be revolutionized again with this car. Dale Earnhardt Jr. talking about the new Gen-6 race car. Nadal wins 1st title since return from injury Associated PressSAO PAULO Rafael Nadal beat David Nalbandian 6-2, 6-3 in the Brazil Open final on Sunday, winning his first title since returning from a seven-month layoff to treat his left knee. Nadal thrust his arms into the air and pumped his fist after a long ball by Nalbandian made him the champion of the indoor clay-court tournament for the second time. The Spaniard also won the event in 2005. It was Nadals 51st singles title, and first since winning the French Open for the seventh time last June. Nadal struggled to find a rhythm in the beginning but was still able to break Nalbandians serve twice to take the first set. He then rallied from 3-0 down in the second to win six straight games and close out the match in 1 hour, 18 minutes at the Ibirapuera arena. Nadal, who was coming off two three-set matches, still looked far from his best and didnt seem to be moving well. The knee appeared to be bothering him again and he left many balls unchallenged throughout the match. The 26-year-old Nadal, currently No. 5 in the world, is recovering from a torn and inflamed tendon in his knee. He returned to action at the VTR Open in Chile last week, losing the singles and doubles finals. The 11-time Grand Slam champion admitted the level of the competition in Brazil was not as high as in other tournaments but said it wasnt bad either, giving him the perfect opportunity to test his knee.

Leading the field to the green flag in NASCARs showcase event should be must-watch television. Thats a huge accomplishment, team owner and fellow driver Tony Stewart said. Its not like its been 15 or 20 years shes been trying to do this. Its her second trip to Daytona here in a Cup car. Shes made history in the sport. Thats stuff that were proud of being a part of with her. Its something she should have a huge amount of pride in. Its never been done. Theres only one person that can be the first to do anything. Doesnt matter how many do it after you do, accomplish that same goal. The first one that does always has that little bit more significance to it because you were the first. Even before her fast lap Sunday, Patrick was the talk of Speedweeks. Not only did she open up about her budding romance with fellow Sprint Cup rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr., but she was considered the front-runner for the pole after leading practice sessions Saturday. And she didnt disappoint. She kept her car at or near the bottom of the famed track and gained ground on the straightaways, showing lots of power from a Hendrick Motorsports engine. Its easy to come down here in your first or second year as a driver and clip the apron trying to run too tight a line or do something and scrub speed off, Stewart said. Thats something she did an awesome job. Watching her lap, she runs so smooth. ... She did her job behind the wheel, for sure. The result surely felt good for Patrick, especially considering the former IndyCar driver has mostly struggled in three NASCAR seasons. Her best finish in 10 Cup races is 17th, and she has one top-five in 58 starts in the second-tier Nationwide Series. She raced part-time in 2010 and 2011 while still driving a full IndyCar slate. She switched solely to stock cars last season and finished 10th in the Nationwide standings. She made the jump to Sprint Cup this season and will battle Stenhouse for Rookie of the Year honors. Starting out front in an unpredictable, 500-mile race doesnt guarantee any sort of result, but securing the pole will put her in the limelight for at least the rest of the week. She also won the pole at Daytona for last years Nationwide race. This is considerably bigger. The previous highest female qualifier in a Cup race was Janet Guthrie. She started ninth at Bristol and Talladega in 1977. Its obviously a history-making event that will last a long, long time, Guthrie said, praising Patricks feat. Its a different era, of course. Different times. I cant imagine what I would do with a spotter or somebody telling me how to drive. Its rather a different sport now. Back then, there was a much greater difference from the front of the field to the back. Guthrie received a lukewarm reception from fellow drivers back then. Patrick was much more welcomed, undoubtedly because of her background and popularity. Shes comfortable being in the spotlight, evidenced by her racing career, her television commercials and her sudden openness about her personal life. I think when pressures on and when the spotlights on, I feel like it ultimately ends up becoming some of my better moments and my better races and better results, Patrick said. I just understand that if you put the hard work in before you go out there that you can have a little peace and a little peace of mind knowing that youve done everything you can and just let it happen. got to earn it, Neumann said. It doesnt come as easy as the late models. Having Richie (Smith) back there really motivated me a lot, because hes a good driver with a good car and he was coming. Ray won the heat and feature in the Pure Stocks season-opener on Feb. 2, but Saturdays 20-lap, seven-car race found him traversing from the back to the front for the victory. He and Inverness Mike Autenrieth gained separation from the pack midway through the race, but car trouble on 14 left Autenrieth with a fourth-place showing behind Brooksvilles James Johnston (second) and Weirsdales James Holly (third). Pinellas Parks Joey Catarelli, the 2012 Pro Figure 8s champ, won the divisions first feature of the season in 15 laps. His yellow No. 6 trailed Homosassas Charles Herne, until Herne crashed on 8, allowing Caterelli to build a comfortable advantage down the stretch. Floral Citys Thomas Peet and Eric Sharrone finished second and third, respectively. In the Sportsman class, Lakelands Aaron Williamson followed up a lastplace finish from two weeks ago with a wire-to-wire win for his first victory. Brooksvilles Mike Bell, Orlandos Andy Nicholls and Beverly Hills Jay Witfoth followed in the 25-lap event. A flat tire on lap 19 of 20 for thenleader Shannon Kennedy of Summerfield, helped lift Dade Citys Kevin Stone to his first win of the season in the four-cylinder Mini Stocks. Stone passed five cars after the first lap to edge out Summerfields Jesse Mallory. Weirsdales Jerry Daniels and Belleviews Jason Terry rounded out the top placers. Modified Mini Stock, Street Stock, Pure Stock, Figure 8 and Hornet divisions race this Saturday, with heat races beginning at 5:30 p.m. from mentoring these guys when we were playing. And thats not going to stop just because Im not playing. He still fits right in. When Jason Heyward and Justin Upton walked into the batting cages, Jones shouted, All right, here come the big dogs! A short time later, the 40-year-old plopped down on a bench next to Heyward, chatting up the outfielder who is nearly two decades his junior. Theyve got to schedule a day to retire your jersey, Heyward said, breaking into a big smile. It better not be one of those getaway night games. Dont worry, Jones said. Were gonna keep it short and sweet. While the retired third baseman has no desire to get into full-time coaching at this point, he vowed to remain a handy resource should anyone on the Braves need him. Hes always welcome to come around, manager Fredi Gonzalez said, mindful of the leadership role Jones had as a player. I still want these guys to succeed, Jones said. If I can give them a little nugget here and there to help them, Im going to do it. But, tellingly, he now refers to the Braves as they instead of we. He really is retired, and its going to stay that way. He had not thrown a ball until he tossed out the ceremonial first pitch for a game at Stetson University on Saturday. While he carried around a fungo bat during Sundays workout, he hasnt actually taken a swing since his final game, a playoff loss to the Cardinals. Im sure these guys are going to egg me on at some point, Jones said. But I think my back would break if I took a somewhat competitive swing. Pitcher Kris Medlen is still getting used to the idea that Jones is no longer a teammate. Its weird, Medlen said, shaking his head. Coach Jones. Hmm. Coming off that all-too-brief appearance in the playoffs as a wildcard team with a throwing error by Jones contributing heavily to the loss the Braves made a couple of dramatic moves to replace the offensive production that No. 10 provided with such regularity over his 20-plus-year career. First, they signed B.J. Upton as a free agent for essentially the same money Jones was receiving. Then, they pulled off a blockbuster deal with Arizona to land B.J.s younger brother, Justin. Its early, but Jones likes what he sees. They certainly made some sexy moves, he said. When this team is going well, its going to be an exciting team to watch. Certainly, the three guys in the outfield (Upton, Upton and Heyward) are as dynamic as anybody elses threesome in baseball. When Jones headed out to the batting cages, the fans recognized him instantly even though he was bundled up in a jacket on the unseasonably cold day (temperatures were in the 40s) and his eyes were hidden behind a pair of white-framed sunglasses. He watched the guys who will try to replace him, then hung around to sign cards, bats and pictures, chatting with folks who still view him as the face of the franchise. Are you going to take a few swings, one of them asked. Im going to leave that to the hired help, Jones said, drawing plenty of chuckles. Someone else broached a subject thats closer to his heart these days. Hows the hunting going? a man asked. Goooood! Jones replied, his voice rising with excitement. I could turn pro in hunting.

No. 12 Louisville shuts down South Florida 59-41 Associated PressTAMPA Russ Smith scored 15 points and No. 12 Louisville stayed within a game of first place in the Big East with a 59-41 victory over South Florida. Smith, Wayne Blackshear and Kevin Ware did all the scoring for the Cardinals during a 22-3 run in the first half. Smith also had six rebounds and four assists for Louisville, which has won four of five. Blackshears 3-pointer pulled Louisville (21-5, 9-4) even at 11-all and launched the decisive rally. The Bulls (10-15, 1-12) cut the margin to six early in the second half with the help of a spectacular dunk by Victor Rudd and two free throws by Anthony Collins, but Louisville went back to its full-court pressure to produce another big run of 19-3 in the second half. Jawanza Poland scored 11 points for USF, which shot 24.5 percent and lost its eighth straight. No. 3 Miami 45, Clemson 43 CLEMSON, S.C. Kenny Kadji scored 12 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 36 seconds left to keep No. 3 Miami perfect in Atlantic Coast Conference play after a 45-43 victory at Clemson. The Hurricanes (21-3, 12-0) finished with their fewest points of the season, and their high-scoring guard duo of Durand Scott and Shane Larkin were a combined 3-of-16 shooting for 10 points. Still, Miami pulled it out on Kadjis wide-open 3. Clemson (13-12, 5-8) had three chances to answer back, but Rod Hall was called for an offensive foul on one trip and, after Trey McKinney Jones made a foul shot, Hall missed a layup and K.J. McDaniels failed on a tip. The Hurricanes continue the ACCs longest undefeated start since Duke went 16-0 in 1998-99. No. 4 Michigan 79, Penn State 71 ANN ARBOR, Mich. Trey Burke scored a season-high 29 points and freshman Glen Robinson III matched a career high with 21 to help No. 4 Michigan bounce back from an embarrassing loss with a 79-71 victory over Penn State. The Wolverines (22-4, 9-4 Big Ten) had dropped three of their previous four games, including a 23-point loss Tuesday night on the road against No. 8 Michigan State, and needed a half to shake off their slump. The Nittany Lions (8-17, 0-13) led by as many as eight points in the first half. No. 9 Arizona 68, Utah 64 SALT LAKE CITY Mark Lyons scored 18 points, freshman Brandon Ashley added 10 in a reserve role and No. 9 Arizona defeated Utah 68-64 to snap a two-game skid. Arizona led by as many as 13 early in the second half only to see Utah respond with a 14-3 run to tie it at 51 with 7:28 remaining on Jason Washburns tip-in. A 3-pointer by Dakarai Tucker pulled Utah within two with 4:46 left, but a putback by Kevin Parrom and a layup by Lyons helped seal it for the Wildcats (21-4, 9-4 Pac-12). Jarred DuBois had 16 points for the Utes (11-14, 3-10), who have yet to win back-to-back conference games since joining the Pac-12 two years ago. No. 20 Wisconsin 71, No. 13 Ohio State 49 MADISON, Wis. Ben Brust and Jared Berggren each scored 15 points as No. 20 Wisconsin routed No. 13 Ohio State 71-49. Sam Dekker came off the bench to score 13 for Wisconsin (18-8, 9-4 Big Ten), while Traevon Jackson added 10. DeShaun Thomas led the Buckeyes (18-7, 8-5) with 18 points. The win kept Wisconsin tied with Michigan for third in the conference, two games behind leaders Indiana and Michigan State. Ohio State fell to fifth. FSU tops Tar Heels Though he isnt seen often, Jordan is never far from the game. He is close to a group of players through his Jordan Brand apparel and as the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. He ignited one of the debates of the weekend when he told NBA TV he would chose Bryant over James based on the number of championships each has won. If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice, but five beats one every time I look at it, and not that (James) wont get five, he may get more than that, but five is bigger than one, Jordan said in the interview, which airs Monday night. Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks counts Jordan as one of the most influential in his decision to play basketball. He changed the game, transcended the game, Anthony said. He changed the way people coached the game from a mental aspect. From a training aspect, how you approach that, he changed that. So for me as a kid to see that and see somebody go through that and succeed, that was motivation. Jordan, who retired for the last time with more than 32,000 points, is perhaps known as much by the younger generation of stars for his namesake Nike shoe as for his basketball skills. The imprint hes had on the league, hes an immortal, Bryant said. Everything that hes done from the business aspect to his professionalism to his work ethic to the global appeal of the game has been something that carries on for generations and generations. Jordan didnt make himself available to the press during All-Star weekend. James said this week that he wasnt too concerned with the TV remarks. At the end of the day, rings dont always define someones career, James said. If thats the case, then I would sit up here and say that I would take (Bill) Russell over Jordan. I wouldnt. I wouldnt take Russell over Jordan, but Russell has 11 rings and Jordan has six. Or Id take, I dont know, Robert Horry over Jordan. I wouldnt do that. But its your own personal opinion. One of the most common sentiments echoed by players this week when talking about Jordan was disbelief that he was turning 50. Time actually flies, Bryant said. Him turning 50, this will be my 17th year, my 15th AllStar Game. Where did the time go?

Associated PressHEBER SPRINGS, Ark. Mindy McCready, who hit the top of the country charts before personal problems sidetracked her career, died Sunday. She was 37. Waren Olmstead, the coroner in Cleburne County, Ark., said McCready died Sunday in Heber Springs but couldnt immediately provide further details. He didnt have further information on who was taking care of her two sons. She arrived in Nashville in 1994 with tapes of her karaoke vocals and earned a recording contract with BNA Records. In 1996, her Guys Do It All the Time hit No. 1 and its dig at male chauvinism endeared her to females. Her other hits included Ten Thousand Angels, also in 1996, and her album by that title sold 2 million copies. However, personal problems plagued her beginning in 2004 and included a custody battle with her mother over one of her sons. McCready took her older son Zander from her mother and the boys legal guardian, Gayle Inge, in late 2011. She fled to Arkansas without permission over what she called child abuse fears. Authorities eventually found McCready hiding in a residence without permission and took the boy into custody. She and her boyfriend David Wilson had a son, Zayne, in April of 2012. The older son has a different father. In May 2010, she was hospitalized briefly after police responded to an overdose call at a home in North Fort Myers, Fla., owned by her mother. This followed a stint on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew. In 2004, she was charged with obtaining the painkiller OxyContin fraudulently at a pharmacy. She pleaded guilty and was placed on three years probation. She violated the probation with a drunken driving arrest in May 2005. Then she attempted suicide in July 2005, overdosed in September 2005 and slit her wrists again in December 2008. Also that year, McCready was charged in Arizona with hindering prosecution and unlawful use of transportation. Those charges stemmed from an alleged attempt in June 2005 to purchase two high performance boats, but she claimed she was trying to stop a con man. Growing up in Fort Myers, she took seven years of private vocal lessons and later sang in karaoke bars. After getting her recording contract, she did concert appearances with top country stars including George Strait, Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson. Birthday Youre the type of person who is gifted with an ability to make friends easily. This splendid quality is likely to be further enhanced in the year ahead. Your circle of intimates is likely to be enlarged. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A certain amount of risk may be required in a matter that you manage for others. If your approach is sane and logical, you can minimize the caprices of fortune. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) When working with someone close to you, both of you will have to watch your tempers. Unfortunately, neither one of you is likely to be sold on the others input. Aries (March 21-April 19) Although you might have plenty of reason to criticize a co-worker, youd be smart to keep your mouth shut. Seek out reasons to praise this person instead. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Your possibilities for gain look exceptionally encouraging, yet there is a strong chance youll negate these opportunities through unwise action. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Being overly anxious to gratify your ambitions could make you be a bit too pushy if youre not careful. Objectives can be reached easily if youre less aggressive. Cancer (June 21-July 22) In order to protect your interests, you might act in a manner that looks to be too self-serving. If you want to ensure your rights, watch out for everybody elses as well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Spending lots of money will not guarantee that youll have a good time. In fact, just the opposite could be true. Youre likely to have a better day if you budget your funds wisely. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although you can do rather well in competitive involvements, you must be extremely selective regarding the tactics you employ. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Its easy for someone to say something to you that could be misinterpreted. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Try not to become too demanding concerning an involvement with a chum. Be more concerned about your contribution. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Should a complication arise in an arrangement that requires teamwork, both you and your allies will have to try to accommodate one another through compromise. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Go slowly when making an adjustment to something that could affect your work or career. Taking small, safe steps is better than going for one huge, blind leap.

The film is based on the best-selling novel by Canadian author Yann Martel, a globe-trotting writer born in Spain. Country star Mindy McCready dead at 37 Associated Press Mindy McCready performs Nov. 14, 2008, in Nashville, Tenn. McCready died Sunday. Associated PressLOS ANGELES Bruce Willis remains a die-hard at the box office. Willis action sequel A Good Day to Die Hard debuted as the weekends top draw with a $25 million debut from Friday to Sunday. The 20th Century Fox release raised its domestic total to $33.2 million since opening Thursday for Valentines Day to get a jump on the long Presidents Day weekend. The movie comes 25 years after the original Die Hard and six years after Live Free or Die Hard, the hit that resurrected the franchise centered on Willis relentless New York City cop John McClane. The previous weekends No. 1 movie, Universals comedy Identity Thief starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, was a close second with $23.4 million to lift its haul to $70.7 million. Debuting at No. 3 with $21.4 million was Relativity Medias romance Safe Haven, starring Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel in an adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel about a woman who flees her abusive husband and takes up with a sensitive widower. Since opening on Valentines Day, Safe Haven has taken in $30.3 million. The Weinstein Co. animated tale Escape from Planet Earth opened at No. 4 with $16.1 million. The movie follows the adventures of aliens captured by the U.S. military. Making a weak debut at No. 6 was the Warner Bros. teen fantasy Beautiful Creatures, which pulled in $7.5 million for the weekend and $10 million since opening Thursday. A Good Day to Die Hard did solid business despite bad reviews for the latest installment, which sends Willis McClane to Moscow in search of his estranged son, an undercover spy who winds up teaming with the old man against Russian bad guys. Overall Hollywood business remained slow, with revenues off for the fourth-straight weekend compared to the same period last year. Domestic business from Friday to Sunday totaled $141 million, down 9.4 percent from the same weekend a year ago, when Safe House and The Vow led the way with about $23 million each. Associated Press Bruce Willis as John McClane, left, Jai Courtney as his son Jack, center and Sebastian Koch as Komarov are pictured in a scene from A Good Day to Die Hard. New Die Hard scores $25M Todays HOROSCOPE Associated Press LOS ANGELES I n mathematical terms, divide the circumference of the world by its diameter, and you have pi. In Hollywood terms, add a United Nations mix of ingredients and you have the blockbuster Life of Pi. With 11 Academy Awards nominations second only to Lincoln with 12 and the sort of global box-office receipts normally reserved for superheroes, Life of Pi is one of the most unusual megahits ever to hit the bigscreen. Approaching $600 million at the box office worldwide, the film is by far the top-grosser among the nine best-picture nominees. Life of Pi has action, suspense and spectacle, but its a thoughtful, contemplative, internalized film, a philosophical and even cryptic story that touched something in the worldwide psyche resulting in business in the realm of more traditional Hollywood hits such as The Hunger Games, Men in Black 3 and Brave. Though backed by 20th Century Fox, the film has an international sensibility that Life of Pi director Ang Lee hopes will gradually become part of everyday business in Hollywood, which has a long history of telling tales even overseas ones with an American perspective. Its a global movie culture. The mainstream cinematic language was largely set up by Hollywood, Americans, therefore its American. Some European directors, but it was an American spirit, Lee said. I think the film language thats established here, thats the biggest obstacle when you try to do something different. You know, the world views things differently. They have different life experiences. As does the talent behind Life of Pi. The film is based on the best-selling novel by Canadian author Yann Martel, a globe-trotting writer born in Spain. Lee grew up in Taiwan, went to film school at New York University and has become one of Hollywoods most eclectic filmmakers, turning his martial-arts epic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon into a critical and commercial smash and winning the best-director Oscar for Brokeback Mountain. Along with Lee, the films Oscar-nominated collaborators in clude American screenwriter David Magee, Canadian composer Mychael Danna, Chilean cinematographer Claudio Miranda and Indian lyricist Bombay Jayashri. The films largely Indian cast is led by newcomer Suraj Sharma as teenage Pi Patel and Irrfan Khan as adult Pi, with French superstar Gerard Depardieu and British actor Rafe Spall co-starring. Every big movie doesnt need to be American. This movie had virtually nothing American about it, said Gitesh Pandya, who runs the website Boxofficeguru.com. Life of Pi follows the spiritual journey of an Indian youth who creates his own multicultural, interdenominational world view by embracing Hindu, Islamic and Christian beliefs and practices. Pi Patels faith is terribly tested after hes shipwrecked on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.

M ONDAY, F EBRUARY18, 2013 B7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Erma Bombeck said, My theory on housework is, if the item doesnt multiply, smell, catch fire or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you? At the bridge table, if someone makes a smelly play, even if the cards do not instantly catch fire, you should care. Try to work out what is happening and what you can do to stop your opponents score from multiplying. In this deal, South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade nine. How should East plan the defense? North was right to jump to three no-trump. With no singleton or void and insufficient points to think about a slam, just go for the nine-trick game. South starts with eight top tricks: three spades and five clubs. He needs to get a heart trick, but if the opponents take their heart ace and shift to diamonds, they might be able to take four tricks there for down one. Declarers best shot is to win the first trick with his spade king, cross to the dummy, and call for a heart. If East is napping and plays low, South gains his ninth winner and can claim. However, East should notice things are looking bad for his side. The spade-nine lead was top of nothing, marking declarer with the three high spades. Given dummys club winners, he is almost home. South is surely trying to sneak his ninth trick. East must dive in with his heart ace and shift to the diamond two. Here, that works perfectly for the defense.

She has been married for 10 years and has two school-age children. Due to her husbands work transfers, Mattie twice was left alone with the children for several months while she tried to sell the house and her husband moved to the new location. The first time it happened, things worked out OK, but the second time, Mattie started drinking quite heavily. We didnt find out until she had seizures, lost a lot of weight and ended up in the hospital close to death with severe liver damage. She pulled out of it, but now we worry she might be in the same situation. We visited her over the holidays and suspect she has started drinking again. She also seems very depressed. Her husband doesnt seem to recognize the problem. As parents, do we get involved? If so, do we confront Mattie or talk to her husband? Terrified for Our Daughter Dear Terrified : Please dont be afraid to speak to Mattie if you think she is drinking again. It is a serious matter, both physically and emotionally, and needs to be addressed. You also should speak to her husband. He may be doing more than you realize, or he may be in denial or completely oblivious. Contact Al-Anon (al-anon.alateen.org) for assistance and suggestions. Dear Annie: When my mother was dying of cancer, she chose to die at home and not at my pious sisters house. My sister resented this and made only brief visits during Moms final days. The day the hospice nurse said Mom would probably die within hours, my sister stopped by and then left for a weeks planned vacation. We postponed the funeral until she returned, and she showed up to the visitation in a souvenir T-shirt. After the funeral, Sis, as executor, didnt want my brother or me to go through Moms possessions. Instead, she had an auction, and we had to bid on closed boxes. Many of the things we know belonged to Mom did not show up, and somehow, my sisters name got on the deed to the family farm. There has been no accounting of the income from the auction, and when we asked, Sis became angry. The final straw was that my mother wrote a personal letter to me but did not get around to mailing it. Sis found it, made copies and passed it out to everyone but me. I would like the original, but Sis says, Finders, keepers. Sis now wants us to get together and pretend there are no problems. This is putting my Christian attitude to the test. Should I turn a very bruised cheek and pretend all is well for the sake of family unity? Confused in Missouri Dear Missouri : Your sister certainly has been less than forthcoming, and the business with the personal letter is rather nasty. Did your mother have an attorney? If so, there should be an accounting of where the money went and what your sister was entitled to as executor. But you may need to sue in order to get the information, so decide what its worth to you. It is likely to cause a permanent estrangement, and you still may not get what you are hoping for: your sisters remorse and an apology. Our condolences. Dear Annie : Want To Do the Right Thing wants to celebrate his parents 50th anniversary but cant afford the restaurant and wants guests to pay for their own meals. We all want things we cannot afford. Most parents would not enjoy knowing their children are depriving themselves for a big party. Instead, arrange for a nice family photo that would be treasured. Then take your parents out to a lovely lunch or dinner. R. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
