Associated PressNEW YORK Oil dropped below $90 a barrel for the first time this year Monday, and pump prices dropped 3 cents over the weekend as drivers catch a break after two months of steep increases. Benchmark oil for April delivery fell 56 cents to finish at $90.12 a barrel in trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier, the price fell as low as $89.33 a barrel. The national average for a gallon of gas fell to $3.75 a gallon Monday from $3.78 Friday. At one point this winter the price rose for 36 straight days. The 49-cent increase for January and February set a record for that two-month period. The price of oil declined as markets continued to digest the introduction in the U.S. of automatic government spending cuts, which could hurt the worlds leading economy. Spending cuts of roughly $85 billion automatically kicked in on Friday after President Barack Obama and Congress failed to meet a deadline for striking a deal to avert or soften the reductions.

County officials said they honored Randy Messers request he be laid off even through he planned to resign anyway so that Messer could file for unemployment. Assistant County Administrator Ken Frink said officials decided paying unemployment was better than paying Messers $52,710 salary if he chose to forgo resignation. It was a business decision, Frink said. Messer, former government affairs manager for FDS Disposal, was hired in January 2012 as the countys programs manager for the division of solid waste.

Children shout out the colors of the M&Ms that teachers had just handed out. Whitaker has two simple questions of the children: How did you know that? Where does that information come from? She already has the answer: Its the brain. When you learn something, your brain actually lights up, she said. Its like a fireworks show. The brain is more than a passing fancy for Whitaker.

Frink said Messer approached his bosses late last year and said he wanted to resign in order to access his retirement fund. Frink said with Messer leaving, officials decided to eliminate the job. Messer, however, said he would leave only if he was terminated so that he could receive unemployment benefits. Messer was unavailable for comment. Human resources director Sherry Anderson sent Messer a letter Jan. 18 saying his position was being eliminated because it was no longer necessary, according to records. The letter said Messer was placed on administrative leave until Feb. 1, when his employment with the county would be terminated. However, on an employment separation questionnaire, which was not dated, Messer stated a different reason for leaving county employment. He wrote he wanted to access the Florida Retirement System account and needed threemonths separation from county employ to do that. Messers unemployment could cost the county $275 a week up to 26 weeks $7,150, county spokeswoman Lindsay Ubinas said. At the end of the day it cost the county much less than salary and benefits, Frink said. Along with his background at FDS, Messer was the countys hazardous materials coordinator for nine years in the 1990s. He left in 2000 to become president of ACMS Inc., parent company of several Sumter County solid-waste businesses coowned by Citrus County Commissioner Scott Adams. According to Messers personnel file, he left ACMS in 2006 because of a change in company ownership. Adams, who could not be reached for comment, is highly critical of the solid waste division. He said he believes the landfill is mismanaged and its budget is bloated. He questioned last week whether Messers hiring was done as a favor to FDS president William Ray. FDS is the countys largest hauler and biggest landfill customer. Frink said his there was no connection. He also said Messers leaving the county is not connected with Adams criticism of the solid waste division. Absolutely not, Frink said.A2TUESDAY, MARCH5, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS The Savings Are Yours Because The Factory Is Ours!

Whitaker, principal at Pope John Paul II Catholic School, has a brain-based curriculum that starts with the wee little ones and goes through eighth grade. A few years back, Whitaker came across a program called BrainWare Safari. The program uses video games to stimulate brain activity, teaching children of all ages and all skills to learn at a rapid pace. Last year, third-grade students were tested in cognitive skills before and after using the BrainWare program. Test scores grew in each category. Whitaker is convinced the key to student learning is less to do with specific lessons in reading or writing and more with brain development. Parents of Pope John Paul students notice the difference as well. Krista Josephs daughter, Ali, started PJP II at 4 years old and now is the second grade. My daughter came home with all this knowledge about the brain and it was shocking, Joseph said. I feel were in the future here. The kids at Pope John Paul are getting something very special here. Its not how Whitaker saw it when she took the job 12 years ago. In fact, taking the job itself was not in her plans. Whitaker had been an associate superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in Wisconsin when she and her husband moved to Florida. She had planned to conduct consulting workshops for teachers and parents and was doing that in Miami when someone from PJP was in the audience. The Rev. Richard Jankowski, then pastor at St. Scholastica Catholic Church, convinced Whitaker to take the principals job in Lecanto. God works in mysterious ways, she said. It was such an opportunity to impact teachers. After two years, Whitaker resigned to seek her doctorate, but came back after only a few months. I missed the kids so much. I came back that same year, she said. This is such a wonderful community. Whitaker, who received her doctorate while working full time, oversees a school of 185 students in early childhood through eighth grade. BrainWare started out as a pilot program with 13 children, who showed improvement in their homework and testing. Word got out and more parents wanted to be part of it, Whitaker said. Its now part of the thirdgrade curriculum. Whitaker is such a believer in brain-based learning that BrainWare Safari and the Learning Enhancement Corp. named her outstanding educator of the year in the field of Neuroscience in the classroom and that PJP II will receive the neuroscience-based Teaching and Learning Award from BrainWare next week during brain awareness week. Understanding how the brain works is critical in education, she said. As students become more technologically savvy, educators are learning the changes in their brain activity. Children who once spent their afternoons playing outside now sit behind computers or engage in video games. Kids have more difficulty being creative and using their imagination, she said. That part of the brain is not being activated. Its very difficult for kids to express themselves. Whitaker said the key is focusing thinking in ways that stimulate brains in a positive way. The formative years its much more critical than we even realize, she said. Im concerned what kids are being exposed to.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is embarking on one of the first steps to developing a comprehensive conservation plan for Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge Complex, with a public input meeting March 19, according to Refuge Manager Michael Lusk. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. in the Magnolia Ballroom at the Plantation on Crystal River. It is a public forum to hear the publics concerns and what they would like to see from us, Lusk said. Lusk said the meeting, which is being called a scoping, is the first step in the year-long process to develop a 15-year management plan for the refuge. It is something that is mandated by Congress and every refuge has to do it, Lusk said. According USFWS, the first public scoping meeting for the Crystal River refuge happened in February 2008. Officials said much has changed since that scoping in 2008, including assumption of responsibility for the management of Three Sisters Springs by USFWS. A public workshop was held in January, 2011 to specifically address waterway management of Three Sisters Springs. Now, in 2013, additional scoping aims to re-engage the public and to revive development of the future management plan for Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. The agency said the issues of importance to the public it has identified include: Impacts from increasing and changing ecotourism activities. Jurisdictional issues. Regulatory issues. The need for strong and effective existing and new partnerships. The need for effective outreach and environmental education programs to minimize negative impacts from human activities. The need for management of access to Three Sisters Springs when manatees are present. The need for development of the Three Sisters Springs property in accord with the management plan. Threats to refuge habitats, including impacts on water quality and quantity and severe erosion at Three Sisters Springs. Threats to manatees.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Meeting to mull issues with refuge PATFAHERTY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER While Crystal River High School starts Citrus Countys prom season this weekend, the business side of the annual dance has been going on and will extend through April. With four schools hosting proms and spillover customers from Marion and Hernando counties, prom season can bring a flurry of commerce to certain businesses. Crystal Rivers prom is March 9, Lecanto High School is April 6 and Citrus High School is April 13; all will be at Black Diamond. Seven Rivers Christian High School is April 27 at Glen Lakes. Prom spending got national attention when Visa published survey results showing it had surged from an average of $807 in 2011 to $1,078 in 2012. It can involve gowns, undergarments, shoes, handbags, rental attire, tickets, dinner, flowers, hair, nails, makeup, pictures, limo and post-prom activities. The list can also include tanning, teeth whitening, jewelry, pocket squares, hats, gloves and plenty of hairspray. Whether their tuxedo choice is classic black or camouflage, Stephany Mueller does not let guys leave until they look just right. Mueller manages Karat Gallery Jewelry and Gifts at Crystal River Mall. While the business offers a variety of goods and services, it is prom central for many local students. The store is set up for onsite alterations, and with a large selection in stock, it can get a guy into a tux, vest, formal shirt, tie and shoes pretty quickly, often under the watchful eye of a mother or girlfriend. Its been very busy, Mueller said. Almost any color they can think of we can get it in. And that includes camouflage, a choice for some guys at both Crystal River and Lecanto. Most of the guys that come dont really dress up all the time, she said. We have a folder they can follow and books to look through. Guys can get out the door in the $100 range, a little more if they add shoes, hat or a pocket square. Well dress them from head to toe, she said. The process for girls starts a lot earlier, with fashion shows leading to gown selection, fittings and accessorizing. Mueller said they carry a large selection of gowns. They also have shoes and jewelry. A prom gown at Karats averages about $300 and some go as high as $600, Mueller makes sure only one gown of a style goes to any high school. This will be a busy Saturday for many hair salons as girls come in for their prom day look. Next to a dress, its number two, explained Sharon Malm at New Concepts International Hair Salon in Crystal River. Were pretty well booked; its not a normal Saturday. Most come in to have their hair put up, which can take 30 minutes to an hour and a lot of hair spray, Malm said. The salon uses an iPad and photos to work with the girls and get the right look for their face and gown. Its not a normal Saturday, she said. Well be busy for the next three proms. Girls will spend $40 on the low side, averaging $50 to $70. The prom look also involves makeup. Belk manager Katrina Spires said they are booked solid Saturday, only taking walk-ins if possible.

For some local merchants, annual school dances mean big business CHRISVANORMER Staff writerAs the county considers joining forces with its neighbor to the south for a greater voice in future transportation projects, issues and conflicts will need to be resolved. Taking a step toward an amicable agreement will be the goal of a specially called workshop on Thursday for the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), as it seeks a merger with the Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The workshop will review and discuss the draft planning area boundary and apportionment plan. The new boundary for the merged MPO would include all of Citrus and Hernando counties as the area where transportation planning functions would be performed. Apportionment county representation on the merged MPO would need to be agreed by both counties. Currently, the Citrus TPO has seven board members: two from each city council Inverness and Crystal River and three from the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). The Hernando MPO, however, seats six board members: all five Hernando County commissioners and the may or of Brooksville. The draft apportionment would limit Citrus County to five instead of seven board members, while Hernando County would retain its current six. Citrus would have three members from the BOCC and one each from each city council, for a total merged MPO membership of 11. Hernando County would hold the majority on the board by one seat as it would account for 55 percent of the combined population of the two counties that compose the new boundary. The workshop will include discussion on the merits of a larger or smaller board, the economic importance of transportation to both Citrus and Hernando counties, and the importance of a partnership and the desire for fairness and equity. The TPOs Technical Advisory Council will meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Lecanto Government Building, 3600 W. Sovereign Path, Lecanto. The Citizens Advisory Council will meet at 3 p.m. The next regular meeting of the TPO board is scheduled at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, March 14, in the Inverness Government Center, 212 W.

House panel rejects Medicaid expansion Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A key legislative panel voted on Monday against expanding Medicaid coverage to roughly 1 million more residents under the federal health overhaul, expressing fears that the federal government would ultimately back out of paying its share and leave the state on the hook for billions. The vote was strictly partisan with House Republicans contending that the states current safety net program which costs about $21 billion a year to cover more than 3 million Floridians is already broken and that adding more patients would only exacerbate problems while increasing the federal deficit. The federal government has offered to pay the full cost of Medicaid expansion for the first three years and 90 percent thereafter. House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston of Plantation called it morally reprehensible that the House was rejecting Medicaid expansion. We are talking about peoples lives, Thurston said. House Speaker Will Weatherford said that the contentious debate in Washington, D.C., over automatic budget cuts and taxes over the past few months proves it would be risky to rely on federal aid. I think theres a lot of uncertainty that is coming from the federal government and to rely on them to expand the Medicaid program with that uncertainty is a very dangerous path, said Weatherford, a Republican from Wesley Chapel. The decision sets up a clash with Gov. Rick Scott, who called Medicaid expansion a compassionate and common sense step to take to help Floridas large uninsured population. He proposed expanding the program for three years or as long as the federal government foots the entire bill. Scott could have an ally with the Florida Senate, which has not yet taken a final stance. A Senate committee scheduled to vote on the issue Monday was postponed, with chairman Sen. Joe Negron asking for more information and saying hed rather get it right than make a hasty decision. He also dismissed the idea of doctor shortages in the current Medicaid program, a common concern among Republicans, as a reason for not expanding the program, saying state lawmakers should be able to find workers if they want a service badly enough. But like the governor, Negron has repeatedly expressed concerns about costs.

Several to Choose From DANIELLE 2013 Newest Model be filled or whether the property could be built on again. But some experts say the fact that the sinkhole claimed a life that of Jeff Bush, 37 and that his body is expected to remain below the surface make rebuilding less likely. Its kind of a bad omen, said Dave Arnold, a hydrogeologist who has surveyed sinkholes for the Southwest Florida Water Management District. This is an even worse omen with someone buried under there. Arnold and other experts expect that once the house is destroyed, crews will work to fill in the hole and the lot will likely remain empty. Depending on the circumstances, past Florida sinkholes have been handled in varied ways. In Maitland, Fla., a sinkhole 325 feet across was discovered in the 1960s as Interstate 4 was built. The highway was diverted around the area, but in 2008 workers began a $9 million project to fill and stabilize the sinkhole in preparation for a planned expansion of the roadway. Engineers say a road can be put over it now without any problems. In Winter Park, Fla., a sinkhole in 1981 swallowed several sports cars, parts of two businesses, the deep end of an Olympic-size swimming pool and a three-bedroom house. It stretched about 350 feet across and caused $2 million in damages. The area became a temporary tourist attraction, but most of it was ultimately deserted, filled with water and became a lake. And in 2002, a sinkhole about 150 feet across and 60 feet deep swallowed oak trees, sidewalk and park benches near an apartment complex in western Orange County, Fla. Two buildings with more than 100 residents were evacuated, but the structures were ultimately saved. Metal sheet piling was placed around the hole to stop the soil from sliding, and it was filled. Often, homeowners find clues to a pending problem by cracks in the foundation or a shifting floor. When that happens, and a sinkhole threat has been established, crews can pump a thick grout a mixture of sand and cement into the ground to fill the holes. It is a costly process, though it is typically paid by insurance companies, and can save a home from being destroyed. You inject the grout under pressure and attempt to fill all the cavities you can find, said Anthony Randazzo, a former University of Florida geology professor who started the consulting firm Geohazards, which handles about 1,000 cases a year of sinkholes and other settlement issues. Though the specifics of what will happen to the Seffner property remain unknown, Randazzo said the hole would have to be filled to keep people from falling in it and to remove a potential neighborhood eyesore. If the family decides to try to sell the property, they would be required to notify prospective buyers of the sinkhole issue. Currently, various county agencies are at the sinkhole site to supervise, but officials havent given a tally of the costs or said who is absorbing them. For now, the focus in Seffner remains on a family mourning a loved one and trying to move on. Two large backhoes scraped and pulled at the house Monday afternoon, with one gently removing possessions including a flag, a jacket, family photographs, a bicycle and a china cabinet. The other machine loaded shattered pieces of furniture and construction material into a huge waste container. The days most solemn moment came at 4 p.m., when demolition stopped and workers joined family members for a brief ceremony. The many flowers and notes that had been left in front of the house were loaded into a tractors bucket, which swung slowly toward the sinkhole and dropped the materials into the hole. There was applause from across the street. Though the houses demolition was completed Monday, crews had not yet finished removing its foundation. impasse, and what happens next is anyones guess. The International Monetary Fund has predicted that the spending cuts could reduce U.S. growth by some 0.5 percentage points in 2013. Traders also said that a report showing weakness in Chinas service sector contributed to the drop in oil. While a month ago oil was close to exceeding $100 a barrel, analysts said prices could continue to slide. A report from JBC Energy in Vienna noted that refineries are undergoing a higher than normal rate of maintenance. That reduces demand for oil, hurting the price. And Jim Ritterbusch of Ritterbusch and Associates in Illinois says recent strength in the dollar is a major reason that oil is down 7 percent a little more than 2 weeks. The increase in the dollar makes crude more expensive and a less attractive investment for traders using other currencies. While the euro was worth over $1.36 on Feb. 4, on Monday it was trading just under $1.30. In the U.S., refinery maintenance contributed to the early-year spike in gasoline prices. Refineries are switching from winter blends of gasoline to summer varieties, which are formulated to reduce pollution. That switch requires some downtime for a refinery, cutting supplies and boosting the cost of gas. The transition is still going on, and could somewhat mitigate the impact of cheaper oil in gas station prices. Brent crude, used to price many kinds of oil imported by U.S. refineries, fell 31 cents to $110.09 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London. In other energy futures trading on the Nymex: Wholesale gasoline fell 3 cents to $3.10 a gallon. Heating oil slipped 1 cent to $2.92 a gallon. Natural gas gained 7 cents to $3.53 per 1,000 cubic feet.

Legislature facing many familiar fights Associated PressTALLAHASSEE New leadership now controls Floridas Republican-led Legislature, where the loquacious Don Gaetz presides in the Senate and 33-year-old Will Weatherford steps into the biggest test of his political career as speaker of the 120-member House of Representatives. With the nine-week session opening Tuesday, the pair agree lawmakers need to focus on important issues like the budget, education, health care, the proposed expansion of Medicaid, property insurance and election reform and not waste time on the inconsequential, which can burden the process. Everybodys making sacrifices to be here, said Weatherford, the second-youngest speaker in state history. Were not up there to mess around. Were here to make a difference. Republican and Democratic leaders are already questioning some of Gov. Rick Scotts priorities in his $74.2 billion budget proposal, including his push to offer a $2,500 acrossthe-board pay raise to school teachers and a one-time bonus for state employees. Gaetz and Weatherford have comfortable Republican majorities to help with their goals. The GOP has a 26-14 advantage in the Senate and 76-44 in the House, although Democratic gains in November have eliminated the two-thirds majority the GOP had in both houses. Scott has reversed his stance in recent weeks on expanding voting opportunities, the expansion of Medicaid and on pay increases for teachers and state workers. His change of heart on the Medicaid issue received a chilly reception by legislative leaders. Gaetz, who said he supports Scotts candidacy for re-election next year, differs with the governor on Medicaid expansion and some spending priorities. I think its way too early to start talking about extra money, Gaetz said, again referring to the budget battle in Washington. Politics, naturally, are always center-stage here, although the main characters are new on the legislative front for the next two sessions. Scott has already begun that midterm pivot on several issues with an eye on boosting his lagging poll numbers with his 2014 reelection bid looming.

A Sterne Agee analyst started coverage of the handbag company with an Underperform rating, saying it may face inventory issues. The mattress maker warned that sales were weak in February, and it will likely fall short of its own goals for the current quarter. The high-end denim and clothing company disclosed that it would not be renewing its CEOs employment contract, which ends June 30. The chemical maker rejected a $563 million cash-and-stock buyout offer from A. Schulman, a supplier of plastic compounds. The oil and gas company said that it will exit the retail business to focus more on its exploration and production business. Stock indexes rose Monday, and the Dow Jones industrial average climbed to within half a percent of its all-time closing high.

Metabolic Research Center Client DEATHSContinued from Page A6 Associated PressNEW YORK Investors brushed off early jitters about a potential slowdown in China and pushed the Dow to its highest close of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 38.16 points, or 0.3 percent, to 14,127.82. The index is a fraction of a percentage point away from its record close of 14,164, reached on Oct. 9, 2007. Stocks dropped at the opening bell and stayed lower most of the morning amid concern that new steps introduced by the Chinese government to cool the booming housing market in the worlds second-largest economy. Chinese markets were dragged down by housing stocks, which fell sharply after the countrys cabinet ordered new measures to rein in home prices. China will raise minimum down payments in areas where prices are deemed to be rising too fast and crack down on efforts to evade limits on how many properties each buyer can acquire. The U.S. market continues to digest the negative news and hang tough, said Ryan Detrick, a senior strategist at Schaeffers Investment Research. The stock market has rallied this year on optimism that the U.S. housing market is recovering and signs that companies are hiring more. Strong corporate earnings and continuing economic stimulus from the Federal Reserve have also boosted stock prices. Despite having already logged strong gains this year, stocks may still be able to maintain their momentum as investors move money out of bonds, Rob Lutts, chief investment officer at Cabot Money Management, said. Its all about where the money is going, Lutts said. If the money that is sitting on the sideline, or in bonds, is moving into equities that alone is enough to create that shift. Investors put $2.8 billion into U.S. stock mutual funds in the week ending Feb. 27, according to Lipper. Thats the eighth straight week investors have put more money into stocks, the longest streak of inflows in almost two years. The Dow has risen 7.8 percent so far this year and the S&P 500 index is 6.9 percent higher, while the yield on the 10-year Treasury note remains below 2 percent. The yield, which moves inversely to its price, rose 3 basis points to 1.87 percent Monday. Surging stocks in record territory BusinessBRIEFS Heinz CEO entitled to $56 million golden parachuteNEW YORK Heinz CEO William Johnson is entitled to a golden parachute worth $56 million if hes fired by the companys new owners. Warren Buffets Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital announced last month they were buying the ketchup maker for $23.3 billion. Pittsburgh-based Heinz disclosed Johnsons deal in a regulatory filing Monday. The deal lets Johnson walk away with $40 million at any time if he chooses. He would be entitled to another $16 million if the new owners were to let him go.White House: cellphone unlocking should be legalNEW YORK An Obama administration adviser said the White House believes smartphone and tablet users should be allowed to unlock their phones and use the devices on the network of their choosing. In a blog post entitled Its time to legalize cellphone unlocking, R. David Edelman, White House adviser on Internet, innovation and privacy, responded to a petition about the issue by saying the administration feels consumers should be allowed to unlock their phones without civil or criminal penalties, especially if the phones were purchased secondhand or as gifts. Edelman said the administrations opinion on the matter also goes for tablets, since they are becoming similar to smartphones.Boeing ready to move on 787 fix, if FAA approvesBoeing said Monday that it is set to move quickly to get its 787s back in the air if it gets federal approval for a fix for the batteries that have grounded the planes. The Federal Aviation Administration is considering a plan that Boeing submitted on Feb. 22 for fixing the batteries. The FAA has said it expects its experts to recommend this week whether to accept the plan.Hess, under pressure, to exit retail businessNEW YORK Hess is getting out of the gas station business and ridding itself of its energy trading and marketing businesses, as it shifts its focus further into exploration and production. The company will also nominate a slate of six independent directors to its board, replacing six that already hold seats. The announcement arrives about a month after the hedge fund Elliott Management, one of the companys largest shareholders, accused the board of poor oversight, and said that the companys management was responsible for more than a decade of failures. Elliott, which holds a 4 percent stake in Hess Corp., is pushing to seat five outsiders on the board. From wire reports

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 2013 Short sightedThe Chronicleeditorial about the loss of the Citrus County Veterans Service officer is yet another example of the local politicians not being able to recognize the forest because of the trees. Years ago in my search for a peaceful environment in which to retire, I happened upon Inverness. The first sign I saw was Inverness, Veteran Friendly Community. Next I came upon a beautiful Veterans of Foreign Wars post, overlooking the lake. Fishing, golf, Elks, Eagles, entertainment, parks on and on the positives hit me. Inverness is now my home. By some accounts, Citrus County has the highest number of veterans per capita in Florida. Therein lies the value of not just the county veterans service officer but, to my way of thinking, a perfect match to help offset the revenue loss of the Duke Power fiasco. As more and more veterans seek the peace of retirement, what is Citrus County doing to invite them for a look? TheChroniclereports total veterans compensation not retirement/social Security to local veterans at $63 million. The VSO helps daily to bring revenue into the county. Every county position should be as important as the VSO is to the life blood and continuation of peace in our beautiful county. I may be wrong but I think some folks who talk a lot and like to have their picture in the paper have taken this important segment of our society for granted. The low pay of a talented, experienced, military retiree Veteran Service Officer is one indication. Perhaps some advertising of Citrus County at military bases in the cold north and Midwest would be repaid with new citizens who bring money. The VFW, Vietnam Veterans of America, American Legion, etc have magazines and other publication that reach millions across the country. KISS keep it short and simple can go a long way. You dont need to hire Madison Avenue types. The county has an untapped reservoir of good citizens with talent and experience that would help us to spread the word. The county just needs to see the veterans the forest full of trees.Bob Barry Vietnam Veterans of America National Board of Directors InvernessJobs scarce in USI have young family members who graduated from college and are unable to find jobs. I dont mind the United States granting people citizenship as long as we need extra workers. But to grant some sort of amnesty when unemployment is so high just does not make sense.Claude Strass Homosassa s Rick Scott really our next education governor? In his proposed 2013-14 budget, Scott suggests that Florida classroom teachers receive an across-the-board $2,500 raise. He sent a letter to the chairman of the state Board of Education for presentation at the boards Feb. 25 meeting outlining the plan, which would cost a hefty $480 million. The governor also recommended spending an additional $14 million for teachers classroom supplies. Its easy to be cynical about such announcements. Scott proved to be a virtual nemesis of rank-and-file teachers over the past two years, cutting the states education budget and supporting the elimination of teacher tenure. Political realities have set in, and he seems amazed people dont love him for the job hes doing. In the wake of fellow Republicans drubbing in the last election, Scott suddenly faces the prospect of a very tough reelection, likely against nowDemocrat Charlie Crist. So Scotts about-face could be his attempt to woo voters, especially teachers, with a kinder, gentler side. In his letter to the education board proposing pay increases, he said they would be a way to strategically invest in statewide priorities that will encourage job creation for generations to come. In other words, hes justifying the raises on the same grounds that got him elected an appeal to job creation. He also said in the letter that the states teachers earned the raise because of Floridas improvement in one national review and rises in test scores and graduation rates. Even assuming those results are sound, they owe no thanks to Scotts policies, but never mind. I offer another reason for raising pay for all teachers: simple economics. Does anybody in our owned-by-theChamber-of-Commerce, freeenterprise-forever state legislature believe teachers are exempt from one of economics basic rules that talented workers will follow higher pay? If we want to know why our public education system fares poorly compared with other states, could it be our best teachers run to other states that pay more? Heres another reason to support higher pay for teachers. In its zeal to ferret out whom they believe to be lazy, indifferent or incompetent teachers, our legislators put the blame for poorly performing schools on the wrong side of the equation. It is students who ought to be held accountable, as they were in the past. When I attended public school, the common assumption was if a kid brought home a bad grade, it was because he was lazy, indifferent or incompetent. The onus was on students to take personal responsibility theres a Republican phrase for you for their educations. It was not the teacher at fault when a student brought home straight Ds. When did we start assuming the blame lay with a bad teacher? But of course that is not the political mantra these days. Reports are that legislators are cool to Gov. Scotts proposal for across-the-board pay increases because they favor instead wait for it merit increases. Never mind teacher and school evaluations based on test scores are increasingly proving to be failed policy. Scott in his letter touts teachers as the cornerstone of educational success. Hes right, of course, but who is listening? Not the tea party nor even the legislative leadership. Not teachers themselves, after the way he treated them in the past. The same political fear that drove Scott might actually get through to enough legislators to give Floridas teachers boosts in pay and morale. But Rick Scott shouldnt expect anyone who supports public education to tumble over themselves rushing to thank him.Cary McMullen is a journalist and editor who lives in Lakeland.

In his bid for a seat on the Citrus County Commission, Scott Adams positioned himself as a staunch foe of government. It worked. Claiming 40 percent of a four-way race for the District 5 seat, Adams was swept into office by voters fed up with a county government they perceive as wasteful and unresponsive. The bombastic commissioner has wasted little time and fewer words assailing the offices and officers of Citrus County. Hes called out county staff as being overpaid and indolent. At successive commission meetings, he made motions to fire the county administrator and the county attorney. Hes even called for a grand jury investigation into the workings of county government, convinced theres an undercurrent of corruption and impropriety that needs rooting out if the citizens hes sworn to represent are to be justly represented. His demeanor toward his colleagues is at times condescending and his disposition unwaveringly adversarial. Its exactly what his supporters want to see. In letters to the editor, in calls to theChronicle, in posts on his Facebook page and in response to coverage of his endeavors, theyve heaped praise on the boards newest member, urging him to press harder, to dig deeper, to disrupt and unsettle the local establishment. Hes obliged. In those same venues, Adams has kept up his campaign, firing salvos at the very people he has to sit next to in order to do the business of county government. Heres the hitch: Adams is no longer on the campaign trail. Hes now part of the problem and if he truly wants to fix it, he needs to work within the bureaucratic apparatus to give his constituents their due. As a case in point, Adams levied a bevy of cost-cutting suggestions at the Feb. 26 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners. Among them: Put the brakes on Port Citrus; cut commissioners pay by $5,000; consolidate the countys human resource departments; consolidate the countys satellite offices; analyze purchasing procedures and the retention of consultants and lobbyists; and reevaluate replacement criteria for the countys vehicle fleet. All are worthwhile suggestions, met by resistance not because of their merit, but because of Adams methods. Clearly unsatisfied with the boards reaction to his ideas, he lashed out at a fellow commissioner, patronizingly apologizing for his colleagues implied lack of understanding and saying, I gave you a solution, but you dont want it. We all want solutions, but we want to arrive at them collegially. We must give the commissioner the benefit of the doubt and assume his intentions are pure. He wants change, and he wants it now. But he might not get it ever if he continues to butt heads with the very people he must work with to effect that change. For the sake of a county facing exceptional challenges in unfavorable conditions, we urge Commissioner Adams to temper his rhetoric. This is not a call for complacency; disagreement among commissioners is inevitable and necessary, but discord does not lend itself to effective representation. Adams has made his presence known; now the onus is on the commissioner to prove to his colleagues and his constituents that his posture has purpose.

Scott Adams may feel passionately about making changes, but he obviously has no strategic plan to make those changes.

Mr. Simmons Super Bowl family time was virtually uprooted by a halftime Victorias Secret commercial that embarrassed everyone. Pervert jokes were lobbed at those who didnt turn away from the screen, and kids left the room. Simmons himself prayed, asking God to condemn the producers, but readers were left wondering: condemned to what? I was a bit surprised Mr. Simmons family even stayed on that station during halftime. Apparently, they neither saw nor heard of Janet Jacksons unfortunate costume malfunction during Super Bowl XXXVIIs halftime. What a shocker that was! Mr. Simmons noted the stadiums crowd loved halftime, but he left it to readers to decide whether or not the euphoria was an indication of a breakdown of our society. He points out, One thing you cant deny is that kids werent murderers then. I dont know which or what then Mr. Simmons was talking about, and I couldnt find statistics on murder rates by kids, but he will be glad to hear that last years homicide rate (4.8 murders/100,000 population) was a 50-year low.

The tragedy of Sandy Hooks 26 deaths, 20 of which were children, is dwarfed when compared to the 50 million babies killed by so-called legal abortions since Roe vs. Wade in 1973. We have sentenced ourselves to more disasters whether by storms or other means because we have turned away from God.

NC plan called discriminatoryRALEIGH, N.C. North Carolina Democratic lawmakers, clergy and Hispanic young adults said a state plan to issue specially marked licenses to qualifying illegal immigrants later this month is discriminatory and reinforces the idea they are second-class residents.

The specially marked state licenses will have bright pink stripes and the words NO LAWFUL STATUS on them.Boy dies after school altercationGLENOLDEN, Pa. A sixth-grader who was injured in an altercation with another boy at school two months ago was taken off life support and died, and his suburban school district on Monday made extra counselors available to fellow students.

He had suffered a concussion, a broken nose and other injuries during the encounter with the boy at Darby Township School, in suburban Philadelphia, on Jan. 10.Teens job search inspires othersINDIANAPOLIS Donations have been pouring in since a story went viral online about an Indianapolis teenager who was walking 10 miles to a job interview during an ice storm when he was picked up by a restaurant owner who offered him a job. Now, the pair is starting a foundation to help other job hunters. Jhaqueil Reagan, 18, was walking to a job interview at a thrift store two weeks ago when he cut through the parking lot of Cajun restaurant Papa Roux. He asked the restaurants owner, Art Bouvier, how much farther he had to go. Bouvier told him the store was about 6 or 7 miles down the road. I assumed he was going to get on the bus or something, Bouvier recalled. But Reagan couldnt afford bus fare, so he kept walking. Bouvier and his wife encountered the teenager about 20 minutes later while they were driving to run an errand. Bouvier offered Reagan a ride and found out hed planned on walking the whole way. I decided Id hire him, Bouvier said.

US: UN diplomats drink too muchUNITED NATIONS The United States thinks the United Nations has a drinking problem. Ambassador Joseph M. Torsella, who represents the U.S. on the U.N.s budget committee, said Monday the tense process of negotiating the world bodys annual budget is made more complicated by the number of diplomats who turn up drunk. The U.N. budget is finalized in December, when holiday parties apparently lead to some revelry spilling over into budget negotiations. The U.S. is making the modest proposal that the negotiating rooms should in future be an inebriation-free zone, Torsella said during a private meeting of the budget committee.Unrest in Egypt draws in militaryCAIRO Clashes between protesters and the police in the restive Egyptian city of Port Said that entered their second day Monday have dragged in the military to a dramatic extent into the nations turmoil. At times in the violence, frictions have arisen between the police that were battling protesters and army forces that tried to break up the fighting. Troops in between the two sides were overwhelmed by police tear gas, one army colonel was wounded by live fire, and troops even opened fire over the heads of police, bringing cheers from protesters. Three policemen and three civilians were killed in the fighting, and troops stood by as protesters torched a government complex Monday that contains the citys main police building.China to stress social wellbeingBEIJING Chinas government promised its people Tuesday deficit-fueled spending to fight corruption, improve the despoiled environment and address other quality-of-life issues a growing number of Chinese are demanding.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressVATICAN CITY Cardinals said Monday they want to talk to Vatican managers about allegations of corruption and cronyism within the top levels of the Catholic Church before they elect the next pope, evidence that a scandal over leaked papal documents is casting a shadow over the conclave and setting up one of the most unpredictable papal elections in recent times. The Vatican said 107 of the 115 voting-age cardinals attended the first day of pre-conclave meetings, at which cardinals organize the election, discuss the problems of the church and get to know one another before voting. The red-capped princes of the church took an oath of secrecy and decided to pen a letter of greeting and gratitude to Benedict XVI, whose resignation has thrown the church into turmoil amid a torrent of scandals inside and out of the Vatican. I would imagine that as we move along there will be questioning of cardinals involved in the governing of the Curia to see what they think has to be changed, and in that context anything can come up, said U.S. Cardinal Francis George. The Holy Sees administrative shortcomings were thrust into stark relief last year with the publication of documents stolen from Benedicts desk that exposed the petty infighting, turf battles and allegations of corruption, nepotism and cronyism in the highest echelons of the Catholic Church. The popes butler was convicted of stealing the papers and leaking them to a journalist; he eventually received a papal pardon. The emeritus pope, meanwhile, remained holed up at the papal residence at Castel Gandolfo, his temporary retirement home while the discussions on picking his successor kick into gear in Rome. No date has been set yet for the conclave and one may not be decided on officially for a few more days; the dean of the College of Cardinals has said a date wont be finalized until all the cardinals have arrived. Cardinals probe Vatican turmoil US leaders seeking information on corruption scandals Associated PressBAKERSFIELD, Calif. A nurses refusal to give CPR to a dying 87-year-old woman at a California independent living home despite desperate pleas from a 911 dispatcher has prompted outrage and spawned a criminal investigation. The harrowing 7-minute, 16-second call also raised concerns that policies at senior living facilities could prevent staff from intervening in medical emergencies. It prompted calls for legislation Monday to prevent a repeat of what happened Feb. 26 at the Glenwood Gardens in Bakersfield. Loraine Bayless collapsed in the dining room of the retirement home that offers many levels of care. She lived in the independent living building, which state officials said is like a senior apartment complex and doesnt operate under licensing oversight. Independent living facilities should not have a policy that says you can stand there and watch somebody die, said Pat McGinnis, founder of California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform, a consumer advocacy group. How a nurse can do that is beyond comprehension. In all her years of advocating for the elderly, McGinnis said: This was so horrifying. Ive never seen this happen before. State officials did not know Monday whether the woman who talked to the 911 dispatcher actually was a nurse, or just identified herself as one during the call. She said one of the homes policies prevented her from doing CPR, according to an audio recording of the call. The executive director of Glenwood Gardens, Jeffrey Toomer, defended the nurse in a written statement, saying she followed the facilitys policy. During the call, an unidentified woman called from her cellphone, and asked for paramedics to be sent to help the woman. Later, a woman who identified herself as the nurse got on the phone and told dispatcher Tracey Halvorson she was not permitted to do CPR on the woman. Halvorson urged the nurse to start CPR, warning the consequences could be dire if no one tried to revive the woman, who had been laid out on the floor on her instructions. I understand if your boss is telling you, you cant do it, the dispatcher said. But ... as a human being ... you know, is there anybody thats willing to help this lady and not let her die? Not at this time, the nurse answered. Halvorson assured the nurse that Glenwood couldnt be sued if anything went wrong in attempts to resuscitate the resident, saying the local emergency medical system takes the liability for this call. Later in the call, Halvorson asked, Is there a gardener? Any staff, anyone who doesnt work for you? Anywhere? Can we flag someone down in the street and get them to help this lady? Can we flag a stranger down? I bet a stranger would help her. I understand if your facility is not willing to do that. Give the phone to a passer-by. This woman is not breathing enough. She is going to die if we dont get this started, do you understand? The woman had no pulse and wasnt breathing when fire crews reached her, Galagaza said.

Associated PressJERUSALEM Israels decision to launch a pair of Palestinian-only bus lines in the West Bank on Monday presented by the government as a goodwill gesture, assailed by critics as racism and welcomed by Palestinian riders is shining a light on the messy situation created by 45 years of military occupation and Jewish settlements in the area. While full and formal peace remains distant, the Jewish and Palestinian populations of the West Bank are so intertwined that daily routines are often shaped in mind-boggling ways. Military checkpoints, special permits and different sets of laws are all part of everyday life, and even steps that are well-intentioned, such as the new bus lines, can backfire and spark controversy. Israeli peace activists condemned the bus lines as racist, while Palestinian riders seemed to like the arrangement. Israeli officials insisted Palestinians could still ride regular buses if they choose despite Palestinian claims they are hardly welcomed there by Jewish settlers. Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Mideast war and has built a network of settlements throughout the territory that are now home to more than 300,000 Israelis. Yet another 200,000 live in adjacent east Jerusalem occupied, annexed and expanded to include land that was once in the West Bank. Israel said it decided to launch the new bus lines to help make life easier for Palestinians permitted to work in Israel, where jobs are more abundant and better paying than in the West Bank. After several years of relative quiet, nearly 40,000 Palestinians are allowed to enter Israel to work each day, the highest level since the Palestinian uprising a decade ago. Officials said the buses would ease the burden on Palestinian laborers, who must often take grueling, circuitous routes on Israeli public transportation or rely on pricey taxis to enter Israel. Israeli officials stressed no one was forced to use the new lines and Palestinians were still permitted to ride on Israeli buses if they desired.

RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Three runs pushed across in the top half of the first inning by Wildwood not a good start for Lecantos softball team. The bottom half of the inning, however, provided quite a tonic. So did the rest of this abbreviated contest, with the Panthers rolling to an 18-3 victory Monday in a game called after three innings by the 15-run mercy rule. Amber Atkinson was again the sparkplug for Lecanto, clobbering her third grand slam of the season in only seven games (the Panthers are 3-4) in the opening inning, to go with a single. She had four runs batted in and four runs scored. Against The Villages in the season opener, Atkinson had two grand slams. The round-tripper against the Wildcats was also her fifth homer of the season (she hit two last week against Zephyr Hills). Ive got a good feeling about this season, Atkinson said. Ive just got to be patient and let my hands do the work. Atkinson was quick to give additional credit to her teammates for her success thus far and against Wildwood the praise was definitely earned. Paige Richards collected two hits and drove in three runs while scoring a pair, Lilly Parrish scored three runs while hitting a double and getting hit by a pitch, Emily Havarnack had one hit, two RBI and a run scored and Amber Hopkins collected a pinch-hit single and an RBI. Amber Myers got the pitching win for Lecanto. I thought Wildwood did a great job, Gonzaga No. 1 in AP Top 25 for first time Associated PressSPOKANE, Wash.The to-do list for the Gonzaga basketball team got shorter Monday: For the first time, the Zags were ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 poll. Sweet, but it may get bumpier from there. Next: Avoiding the potholes that have stopped every other No. 1 this season, then finding a way to the Final Four. We dont believe there is any jinx, assistant coach Tommy Lloyd said, subbing for coach Mark Few, who was said to be fly fishing and unavailable for comment. Obviously, its a dream for us, the ultimate accomplishment. Staying No. 1 has been tough this season, with Gonzaga the fifth school to hold the spot after replacing Indiana this week. The others were Duke, Louisville and Michigan. Gonzaga, a small Jesuit school in Spokane, is where crooner Bing Crosby went and where John Stockton threaded pinpoint passes. It has the best record in Division I at 29-2 following weekend wins against BYU and Portland. The Hoosiers, beaten by Minnesota last week, dropped to No. 2. Were not necessarily in pursuit of a ranking, Lloyd said. Were trying to get to the NCAA tournament. When thats over, as coaches we can look back and realize what an accomplishment it is and how difficult it is. The Zags are the 57th school to be ranked No. 1 since the AP poll began in January 1949. The school is considered a mid-major and reached No. 2 for the first time last week. Now it will play for the first time at No. 1 on Saturday night in the West Coast Conference semifinals. The school received 51 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel, 44 more than Indiana. Duke, winners over Miami after a loss to Virginia, remained third with five first-place votes. Kansas and Georgetown both jumped two spots to fourth and fifth. The Hoyas received the other two first-place votes. Miami, Michigan, Louisville, Kansas State and Michigan State rounded out the top 10. Virginia Commonwealth and UCLA, both ranked earlier in the season, returned to the poll at 21st and 23rd, respectively. Gonzagas rise to the top comes 14 years after the school burst onto the national scene with a surprise run to the final eight of the NCAA tournament. Since then, Few has guided the Zags to 12 conference titles, 13 trips to the tournament and four trips to the round of 16. Along the way, Gonzaga has produced a slew of NBA players, including Dan Dickau, Adam Morrison, Ronny Turiaf, Austin Daye, Robert Sacre and Jeremy Pargo. The team features players from Canada, France, Germany and Poland along with Stocktons son, David. Kelly Olynyk, the 7-foot Canadian center, leads the team in scoring at nearly 18 points a game and averages seven rebounds. He calls the No. 1 ranking a great milestone. We have a special team this year, he said. It shows that college basketball in the rest of the country has a lot of respect for us. Spokane is a city of 200,000 near the Idaho and Canadian borders. Its a bluecollar town, far from the high-tech wealth of the Seattle area. But basketball is one place where the states second-largest city outshines Seattle. Gonzaga, in fact, is the first team from the state of Washington to be ranked No. 1. At the time of Gonzagas run to the final eight, the school had fewer than 5,000 students and was struggling with enrollment and budget issues. Today, enrollment is at 7,800 and new buildings are popping up on campus all the time. The 6,000-seat McCarthey Athletic Center, which opened in 2004, has been sold out for all but one game. The Zags have rewarded their fans with a 120-8 home record there. It hasnt been easy. Every year, the Zags seem to take on a tougher nonconference schedule to make up for their WCC schedule. This year they own wins over No. 9 Kansas State, No. 13 Oklahoma State, plus Clemson, Oklahoma, Baylor, Washington State and West Virginia. Their only losses are to Illinois and Butler. Weve had our struggles and battles, but weve made the right adjustments and calls, Lloyd said. We must be doing something right. For now, the Zags, newly anointed No. 1, head to the league tournament in Las Vegas. Lloyd knows such honors go only so far. I dont think those teams are going to care where we are ranked, he said. Malkin fuels rally, Pens top Lightning Associated PressPITTSBURGH Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin scored less than 2 minutes apart in the third period and the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied past the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Monday night. Chris Kunitz added his 12th of the season for Pittsburgh and James Neal scored an empty-net goal in the final minute as the Penguins sent the struggling Lightning to their fifth straight loss. Malkin, making his return after missing four games due to a concussion, tied it 5:38 into the third period on a pretty breakaway. Crosby put Pittsburgh in front moments later with a slap shot from the slot that zipped past Anders Lindback and into the net. Tampa Bays Steven Stamkos scored twice to push his leagueleading total to 17, but it wasnt enough to stop the Lightnings slide. Gonzaga head coach Mark Few shouts to his team during a recent game. Few has led the Zags to the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press poll for the first time in school history. Gonzagas Kelly Olynyk, the teams leading scorer at nearly 18 points a game, called the No. 1 ranking a great milestone.Associated Press All-time AP mens basketball Top 25 No. 1sGonzaga became the 57th school to hold the No. 1 spot in The Associated Press college basketball poll (in alphabetical order): Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Bradley, Cincinnati, UConn, DePaul, Duquesne, Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Gonzaga, Holy Cross, Houston, Illinois, Indiana, Indiana State, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, La Salle, Louisville, Loyola of Chicago, Marquette, UMass, Memphis, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, North Carolina, N.C.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Lecanto coach Robert Dupler said. They really did, scoring those three runs in the first inning. Theyve got a young team and they played hard. We can hit the ball. Just hit the ball hard and good things will happen. Hitting hasnt plagued the Panthers, its been mistakes in the field or on the bases. Dupler estimated his team has committed more than 50 errors already this season. Its been a problem all year, he said of his teams fielding. Were trying to cut down on our errors. Were trying to cut down on our mistakes. Weve got Citrus coming in (tonight), and theyre the best team in the district. Theyre the top dog, and it will be a big test for us. It will be more of a test than Wildwood could provide. For example, Lecanto scored six runs in the third inning on just one hit, Hopkins RBI single. Wildwood seventh-grade pitchers Passion Mills and Jacy Green combined to walk four batters and hit another. Three errors in the field didnt help, either. Tonights 6 p.m. game between Citrus and Lecanto could indeed be a preview of this seasons District 6A-6 title game, although Spring Hill Springstead and Brooksville Central may have a say in the matter.

Marc-Andre Fleury helped shore up a leaky Pittsburgh defense by making 24 saves as the NHLs two highest-scoring teams kept things in check until the third period. Tampa Bay starting goaltender Mathieu Garon left early in the second period with a lower-body injury, pressing Lindback into action. Lindback stopped 16 shots, but was overmatched when two of the leagues best players put on a show early in the third period. Pittsburgh allowed the Lightning one power play and kept Tampa Bay in check for long portions save for a brief breakdown in the second period. Stamkos scored from the front of the net when the Penguins decided to leave him by himself on the doorstep. The Lightning, who blew an early two-goal lead in a loss to Boston on Saturday, again faltered in the third while Pittsburgh continued its mastery of Tampa Bay at least during the regular season.Maple Leafs 4, Devils 2TORONTO Nazem Kadri continued his points streak with a goal and an assist in the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 victory over the struggling New Jersey Devils.

ENTERTAINMENT Page B4TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Birthday A temptation to make some new changes in your basic lifestyle could be prevalent in the year ahead. As long as your plans arent unrealistic or impractical, all should work out quite well. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Nothing worth bragging about is likely to be accomplished if you are too wishywashy. In fact, your inability to make up your mind could drive everyone crazy. Aries (March 21-April 19) Dont get so carried away by how well others are doing you forget to concentrate on furthering your own abilities. Try to focus only on your own efforts. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Just because a certain tactic works well for a friend doesnt necessarily mean it will for you. Experiment to find your own game plan and then stick to it. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Steer clear of any involvement in which you have no say in the decisionmaking. Plans made entirely by others might not be best for your interests. Cancer (June 21-July 22) It wont take you long to lose points with others if you dont hold yourself accountable for your mistakes. This will be especially true if you put the blame everywhere but on yourself. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Wasted time will become a critical factor in hampering your productivity. The chances for accomplishing your aims will be in direct proportion to the time you spend dilly-dallying. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If you and your mate are facing a difficult decision, try to work it out yourselves instead of discussing it with outsiders, especially in-laws. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) In order to spare the feelings of another, you might rework the facts. Sadly, when the truth comes out, it will only anger the person whom you wanted to help. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) When it comes to people who helped you acquire something you badly wanted, of course you should share the rewards. Just dont feel obligated to make a payoff to those who did nothing. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) There is a chance one of your well-intentioned gestures might produce some unintended and unpleasant effects, causing others to have difficulty in discerning your motives. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Under most conditions you are a rather determined person. However, friends could talk you into doing things you know you shouldnt, causing you much guilt later. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A lot of disappointment is possible if you base your expectations on unrealistic premises. Make it a point to try to see things for what they are and not as you wish them to be.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who writes for Glee, penned the four-issue story arc Archie Meets Glee that sees Riverdale and McKinley cross dimensions, blending the snark of the television show and the long-standing wholesomeness of Archie, Jughead and Betty, among others. Associated PressLOS ANGELES It wasnt exactly a mighty victory, but Jack the Giant Slayer won the weekend at the box office. The Warner Bros. 3-D action extravaganza, based on the Jack and the Beanstalk legend, made just $28 million to debut at No. 1, according to Sunday studio estimates. It had a reported budget of just under $200 million. Jack comes from Bryan Singer, director of The Usual Suspects and the first two XMen movies. It stars Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor, Ian McShane and Stanley Tucci. Among other new releases, the college romp & Over from Relativity Media made only $9 million this weekend to open in third place. And the horror sequel The Last Exorcism Part II from CBS Films debuted in fourth place with just over $8 million. Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. executive vice president of theatrical distribution, said Jack the Giant Slayer opened lower than the studio had hoped, but hes encouraged by its CinemaScore, which was a B-plus overall and an A among viewers under 18. One bit of good news for Jack is that it had a 56-percent uptick from Friday to Saturday, suggesting strong word-of-mouth and more family audiences for the PG-13 adventure. That tells us that the audiences that are seeing it really do like it, Goldstein said. The international opening in Asia has been very strong the 3-D component of the special effects works in a big way outside the domestic marketplace. This is the sixth weekend in a row that movie ticket sales are down, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. He pointed out that many of the action pictures aimed at men this year including Snitch, The Last Stand, Bullet to the Head and Parker have been disappointments at the box office. Other films have done OK but we need to do better than OK to keep up with last years pace, he said. Where is the audience? I dont want to overstate this, but where are the guys? Among the few bright spots, the Jason Bateman-Melissa McCarthy comedy Identity Thief has become the first film to cross the $100 million mark this year. Now in its fourth week in theaters, the Universal movie has made $107.4 million. This is a tough marketplace right now. Everything is underperforming, Dergarabedian said. There hasnt been a huge breakout hit yet. For every Identity Thief there have probably been 10 other films that have underperformed. Meanwhile, winners at last weekends Academy Awards, including Argo, Silver Linings Playbook and Life of Pi, are still sticking around in the top 20 after several months in theaters, further underscoring the weakness of recent new releases. But Dergarabedian was optimistic that things will turn around with the opening next week of Disneys Oz the Great and Powerful, a muchanticipated prequel to The Wizard of Oz starring James Franco and directed by Sam Raimi. Its expected to open in the $75-100 million range. We need the cavalry to arrive and we need them soon, he said. Maybe James Franco is the cavalry.Box office weekend numbers 1.

Ho-hum debut Associated PressLOS ANGELES From week to week, fans simply never know which characters will survive the relentless zombie attacks on AMCs hit series The Walking Dead. That unpredictability keeps viewers on the edge of their seats and the shows stars in a constant state of alertness. You see series and they last a long time and sometimes the writing gets lazy or the acting gets lazy. Because were in a zombie apocalypse and anyone can go at any time, it sort of keeps us fresh and on our toes, Norman Reedus told The Associated Press on Friday. Fans lined up around the block to watch a panel discussion with Reedus and his co-stars at Paleyfest, the annual Southern California TV celebration. Many in the crowd showed their support for Reedus crossbow-wielding character, Daryl Dixon, with their If Daryl dies we riot! T-shirts. The 44-year-old actor says his vocal fan base is responsible for his characters impressive longevity in a series that seems to have no qualms in axing its most popular characters. Hell yes. Oh my god, yes, he said. (Theyre) keeping me on the show. The Walking Dead focuses on a rag-tag band of surviving refugees, including unruly brothers Daryl and Merle Dixon, who were not part of the series comic book origins. When asked about his breakout star status, Reedus becomes humble and turns the spotlight on his Golden Globe-nominated cast. Fans keep love alive for Walking Dead star Glee and Archie crossover Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Blaine Anderson and Kevin Keller? Betty Cooper and Noah Puckerman? Things are not as they usually are in the halls of William McKinley and Riverdale high schools. And thats just the way it should be, said Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who writes for Glee and penned the fourissue story arc, Archie Meets Glee, that sees Riverdale and McKinleys famous and vocally talented students come together in a crossover crash that blends the snark of the television show and the longstanding wholesomeness of Archie, Jughead and Betty, among others. The two worlds combine this week in the pages of Archie Comics No. 641, a story drawn by artist Dan Parent that extends through issue 644. Show creator Ryan Murphy said the story honors and celebrates the two worlds. Not just their similarities, but their differences, which Ive think weve done. So what prompted it? A friendship between AguirreSacasa and Archie Comics coCEO Jon Goldwater, who met at New York Comic Con in 2011. The Archie brand is very versatile and were continuing to explore our limits every day, Goldwater said of the latest crossover. How perfectly these worlds mesh and how funny the comparisons are between the characters, said Aguirre-Sacasa, who was given free rein to tell the story that uses the conventions of wormholes and time warps to place the characters in the different universes. The idea was that rather than just have them meet at a competition to do something that was a little bit more comic bookish, he said, adding that hes long been a lover of comic books, science fiction and alternate realities. The kids from both sides will have to figure out how to get home but, in the meantime, why not have some fun? Once you got that big story up and running you could tell a lot more little stories, Aguirre-Sacasa said.

Barrington Place celebrates National Nutrition Month Special to the ChronicleLECANTO According the American Academy of Family Physicians, nearly one in 10 seniors in America suffers from poor nutrition. This can exacerbate problems already common among seniors, including depression, improper healing, and a depressed immune system. Emeritus at Barrington Place, part of Emeritus Senior Living, the nations largest assisted living and memory care provider, is joining hands with all Emeritus communities across the country to help combat this problem by delivering 10,000 meals to seniors in 60 days and visiting with them to ensure they are able to get the nutrition they need every day. Seniors may not get the nutrition they need for a variety of reasons, said John Stathos, dining services director. For some, its due to a lack of financial resources; for others, a lack of reliable transportation. And in many cases, isolation and depression have caused seniors to lose interest in cooking and eating healthfully. Emeritus at Barrington Place provides outreach to seniors who live at home through its Home Visits program, where dedicated senior living professionals visit people in their homes to identify where they could use help and connect them with the services they need. We are committed to making sure that every senior in need in this area finds the combination of programs and services that serves them best, even if they do not live with us, said Jackie Merz, executive director. The 10,000 Meals initiative also supports our Safely Somewhere program, ensuring that no matter where a senior lives, they are safe and living a purposeful life. To help meet their goal, Emeritus is asking for the help. If you know of a local senior who could use a nutritious meal, call Emeritus at Barrington Place at 352746-2273. Well deliver the meal along with a friendly face and some good conversation, Merz said. Emeritus Senior Living, headquartered in Seattle, Wash., is the nations largest memory care and assisted living provider, with the ability to serve nearly 50,000 residents. More than 30,000 employees support some 480 communities throughout 45 states coast to coast. Visit www.Emeritus.com. 10,000 meals in 60 days HEALTH& LIFE For years, I have written often about the importance of cancer screening. I have mentioned the fact that through aggressive screening programs, early detection, and better treatments, the number of cancer survivors in this country continues to grow. We often speak about screening for colon, breast, prostate, cervical and skin cancer, because these screening programs work. But you really never hear about screening for lung cancer, and there are many reasons you do not. However, the lack of discussion regarding this topic may be coming Low-dose CT screens See BENNETT/ Page C3 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Do not ignore anemia Recently, I saw a 75-year-old patient. She was found to be anemic. She asked her primary care doctor to refer her to me. When she came to see me, she had moderate anemia and she was feeling very weak and tired. Anemia can be due to multiple different reasons. Many times, patients tell me, I have been anemic all my life, in other words, do not worry about it. This is not a good idea. This can be very serious mistake. In the past, I have done several articles on the differences between a pediatric patient, an adult patient, and an older more senior adult patient. There are some major differences in treatment and strategies for care, and it is important we be aware of these different points. In this particular article I am addressing the needs of the senior, or the geriatric patient. As I have written about in the past, senior patients are much more complex, and sometimes have several things going on that can affect their quality of life. As medicine improves and becomes more sophisticated, we are able to address these issues, and geriatric care and specialties are starting to become more common as the baby boomers age. Just like pediatric specialties and pediatric hospitals have come to be, this might very well be the case for the geriatric patient. Besides recognizing the need for specialized care for these patients, doctors, nurses, and family members need to coordinate and collaborate for the most effective way to treat and heal these patients. Simple things make a big difference. The vast majority of younger patients are literate, and some of our older patients came through a period of time in the United States when they quit school and went into the workforce to help Health care differences between younger and older patients Good morning! Where has the time gone? We just celebrated the holidays and now its March. March has its ups and downs with beware the Ides of March, as said to Julius Caesar prior to his demise, then there is St. Patricks Day celebrated with green beer and the luck o the Irish. People have their ups and downs too and Nature Coast EMS field team members see them every day. The average age of our patients is about 72. Those of us at the back end of the baby boomers generation now qualify for AARP, but we still focus on our immediate surroundings and may not, or choose not, to see changes in our aging parents. Mine are 73 and 76, live about seven hours away, and are not in the best of health. When was the last time you saw your parents? I have been thinking about my last visit and how some things have changed. I dont like to think of my parents getting older, because that means I am as well. Its a reality I dont really want to face. Have you noticed anything unusual about your elderly neighbor or your parents? Unusual; meaning unopened mail or newspapers piling up. Maybe their appearance has changed; they once cared about how they looked, but now theyre wearing dirty, wrinkled clothing. You were told that everything was fine, but it could be a sign something is going on.

the family through difficult periods in our country, including the Great Depression and World War II. We need to make sure the patient is able to read, because prescription bottles have very small print and can be confusing. Medicine taken the wrong way can be a problem, just to name one of many possible scenarios. Older patients have problems, including agerelated vision issues as well as cataracts that cloud vision, and glaucoma, which can affect the eyesight, so you want to make sure a patient is able to read published materials such as postoperative instructions. The use of illustrations, or pictures, and diagrams will help when the patient may not be so literate. Hearing loss is another problem that can interfere with care, as well as treatment of medical problems, and even understanding the need of post-operative care. At least one-fourth of our senior patients, if not more, have problems with hearing. We know from history that hearing loss can cause some social isolationism and depression, and even seem to interfere with cognitive impairment, and make the patient seem like he may have a touch of dementia. Make sure the hearing is OK, and if not, address that problem. Depression is a big issue with older patients. There may be situations where the patient is retired, inactive, has lost a spouse, and does not get out socially. Depression is not a lifethreatening issue per se, but it definitely affects how the patient responds, performs tasks of daily living and willingness to take care of him or herself. Depression can complicate medical and surgical issues. Further physical injuries after a surgery, especially if the patient is having some dizziness or balance problems, is very common with the older patient. Make sure their living environment is safe. Reducing the risk of fall and injury is very important. I frequently tell my balance patients that dizziness can be an annoyance, but a fall secondary to dizziness, which could cause a hip fracture, is a life-changing situation. There are fall prevention measures available in the literature and online that can be implemented. Medications can cause problems including sedation, confusion, agitation, a change in the patients personality, and sometimes, in extreme cases, auditory or visual hallucinations. This type of situation can occur from a hospitalization for an acute exacerbation of congestive heart failure, or pneumonia, or could occur from a hospitalization for a fall and hip fracture in which the patients medications may change. So when they are back home, things are not as they were before the event, and this can be very disconcerting for the patient, and attention to these matters is very important. Family members, health care givers including visiting nurses, are very helpful in this situation. Phone contact is also very helpful in managing the geriatric patients care. Sometimes patients are hesitant to contact the doctor or the nurse. They dont want to bother them, or they might think their question is too simple or foolish. A simple followup phone call, even from a family member who can break the ice so to speak, to make sure the patient is understanding their instructions, is helpful in a speedy and full recovery. Nowadays we have the availability of visiting nurses, but for patients who do not have that benefit, a phone call might work very well. Family members and friends who participate in the patients care are very helpful. The doctors and nurses do their best, but cannot be everywhere for everybody, so having a good support system is helpful. Teamwork between all of these parties will likely result in a more successful outcome for the older patient, who, as we know, has a greater chance of having medical, surgical, and general health problems.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

GRILLOContinued from Page C1C2TUESDAY, MARCH5, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Reader asks about X-rays, leaky dental caps Q:How often should fullmouth X-rays be taken? What do they uncover that conventional X-rays dont? How often do dental caps leak? What causes this? What must be done to correct it? A: As a general rule a full series of X-rays is done every five years. A full set of X-rays typically includes the bite-wing X-rays taken at a patients hygiene appointment. Their primary purpose is to screen for decay in between the teeth in the area that is not visible by the clinical exam. In addition to the bite-wings a fullmouth series, or FMX, includes periapical X-rays. Peri-apical X-rays look primarily at the root portion of the tooth. They are used to screen for infections in the bone and conditions involving the root of the tooth. When these two types of X-rays are done in conjunction with each other the dentist has the opportunity to be thorough in his or her radiographic examination. The bite-wing portion of this set of X-rays can be expected to be retaken every year or two depending on the propensity of the individual patient to get decay. The peri-apical X-rays can also be expected to be taken whenever the patient returns to the dentist with a problem in a specific area. It is important to know that the visual examination your dentist does on a regular basis is just that visual. The use of X-rays periodically is important in order for the dentist to do a complete and thorough exam. That being said, it is important to not overuse X-rays throughout the doctor-patient relationship. It is my experience that patients want to minimize the use of Xrays. This is where the level of communication between the patient, doctor and hygienist becomes important. As you may recall from previous columns communication is of the utmost importance in any relationship. Caps can leak for any number of reasons. Perhaps the cap never fit properly. Temporary cement may have been used instead of permanent cement. Decay may have started at the interface between the cap and the tooth. There could even be a fracture in the cap that caused the leakage. Depending on the reason for the leak the repair can be as simple as a patch filling, or as involved as needing to remove the cap and place a new one. The only way to really make the call on what is best for a particular situation is through a thorough examination. This examination should include the clinical, or visual exam, as well as the radiographic exam. I hope this has answered your questions.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

NOTESContinued from Page C1HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, MARCH5, 2013 C3 New tampons contain pH-balancing ingredients Q:What can you tell me about RepHresh Brilliant pH tampons? A: RepHresh Brilliant pH tampons are different from traditional tampons because they contain two ingredients (Llactide and citric acid) that help to reduce the usual increase in vaginal pH that occurs during a womans menstrual period. In chemistry, the acidity or alkalinity of a substance is expressed in pH values with a pH value of 7 being neutral, a pH value less than 7 being acidic, and a pH value greater than 7 being basic or alkaline. For example, stomach acid has a pH of about 1 to 5 while lye (sodium hydroxide) may have a pH of 11 to 14. In the vagina, a normal pH of about 4.5 (acidic) is important for maintaining good vaginal health. In women, anything that reduces the acidity (increases the pH) of the vagina can increase the likelihood of vaginal infections, bacterial vaginosis or other problems. The acidity of the vagina may be reduced by hormonal changes shortly before and during menstrual periods or during pregnancy. Frequent douching, use of spermicides, and semen can also reduce vaginal acidity. In addition, aging and sexual activity can affect vaginal pH. In a normal vagina, the acidity of vaginal secretions is maintained by lactic acid, which is produced by bacteria called lactobacilli. When one or more types of vaginal bacteria overgrow and displace the number of protective lactobacilli, the pH of the vagina increases and problem infections or bacterial vaginosis can occur. During a womans period, the high pH of blood (7.4) causes vaginal pH to increase beyond the normal range, and tampons retain the fluids that cause pH to increase. When tampons were first invented in 1929, they were designed for leak protection, comfort and convenience. The RepHresh Brilliant pH tampons may also help to reduce the risk of vaginosis and perhaps other types of vaginitis. Tampon use basics: Use tampons only during menstruation. Change your tampon at least every four to eight hours. You can wear a tampon overnight for up to eight hours. Before going to bed, insert a new tampon and replace it immediately upon waking. Always remove your used tampon before inserting a new one. Be sure to remove the last tampon you use at the end of your period. Richard P. Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years. Send questions to him at 2960 E. Coventry Court, Hernando, FL 34442. Richard HoffmannASK THE PHARMACIST to an end. Adoption of lowdose computed tomography (LDCT) screening regimens (CAT scans as most of you know this test by), as outlined in the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), could potentially prevent more than 12,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States each year. This data was recently published online in Cancer. Researchers from the American Cancer Society estimated the annual number of lung cancer deaths that could be averted by LDCT screening, assuming implementation of the screening regimens adopted in the NLST. Estimates were based on the screening effect, the U.S. population size, screening eligibility, and the lung-cancer death rate among the population eligible for screening. Note that one important aspect, the cost of the screening, is not mentioned, and I will discuss that later. The researchers found that, in 2010, some 8.6 million Americans 5.2 million men and 3.4 million women were eligible for lung cancer screening. Full implementation of the screening regimen adopted in the NLST would potentially avert 12,250 lung cancer deaths each year, 8,990 in men and 3,260 in women. But the process to avert these 12,250 deaths from lung cancer would require that 8.6 million CT scans be performed on a regular basis. So, as a basic matter of financial restraints, many question if the cost of screening is worth the savings in lives. During the past few years, we have heard calls for the discontinuation of screening for breast cancer and prostate cancer due to the fact it costs a lot, and the question of the cost versus the benefit. Trust me, the cost of mammograms and the PSA blood test is much less that a CT scan, so the economic impact of a screening program for lung cancer will be difficult for our health care system to swallow. So, while we can estimate that approximately 12,000 lung cancer deaths could potentially be prevented per year through the full implementation of LDCT screening among eligible heavy smokers in the United States, based on our current knowledge of screening, further studies are needed to estimate the number of preventable lung cancer deaths and the cost-effectiveness of LDCT screening under different scenarios of risk, various screening frequencies, and other various screening factors.

It is usually measured by hemoglobin and hematocrit in a routine blood test called a CBC (Complete Blood Count). Hemoglobin is the oxygen-carrying protein inside red blood cells. It gives red blood cells their red color. People with anemia do not have enough hemoglobin. Red blood cells provide oxygen to body tissues. Obviously, when patients have anemia, some parts of the body do not get enough oxygen. This causes weakness. It may also make the heart pump more blood, causing strain on the heart. You may have no symptoms if the anemia is mild. If the problem develops slowly, symptoms that may occur first include: Feeling grumpy. Feeling weak or tired more often than usual, or with exercise. Headaches. Problems concentrating or thinking. The body needs certain vitamins, minerals and nutrients to make enough red blood cells. Iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid are three of the most important ones. My patient was feeling weak and tired, and workup showed she had a lack of iron. The most common cause of iron deficiency is internal bleeding, usually from the stomach or colon. This can be due to a stomach ulcer, bleeding from diverticulosis or as bad as cancer in the colon or stomach. She was given intravenous iron, which improved her anemia and corrected her weakness. My patient had a colonoscopy four months ago, and it was incomplete due to tortuous colon. She had a PET/CT scan, and it showed possible colon cancer so she had another colonoscopy under anesthesia. This time, she could have a complete colonoscopy and it showed colon cancer. She already had surgery to remove the cancer. Very likely, she will get cured of her cancer. This case clearly teaches us not to ignore anemia. Remember, anemia can be due to various different reasons and it is very important to find out the correct cause of it and then treat it appropriately.

GANDHIContinued from Page C1 as personal hygiene, appropriate clothing, feeding or tending appropriately to any medical conditions, it is known as self-neglect. People can fall victim to self-neglect for a number of reasons, including dementia, illness, malnutrition, overmedication, substance abuse, depression and isolation. Self-neglect is a blanket term used to describe situations in which older people, in the judgment of others, are thought to be neglecting their needs and putting themselves at high risk of additional and serious deterioration. State Adult Protective Services statutes typically define neglect as occurring (1) when basic needs of an elderly or disabled adult are not being served by a person who has been assigned or has assumed responsibility for meeting those needs; and (2) when adults are unable to meet basic needs by themselves. Admitting they need help would mean they cant take care of themselves anymore, and accepting aid is not easy because it appears as a loss of independence. Denying anything is wrong, gives them a false sense of security that nothing bad will happen. They might not even realize their living conditions are a danger because its been that way for so long. Elder self-neglect makes people vulnerable to increasing health problems. It wont happen overnight, but Nature Coast EMS has a finger on the pulse of health and wellness in Citrus County to work on this problem. Our team members respond to citizens, young and old alike, living in deplorable conditions that really need help.

News NOTE News NOTES Special to the ChronicleMidway Animal Hospital in Homosassa has joined with Precious Paws Rescue to support the rescues low-cost spay and neuter program. With a goal of reducing the number of homeless and unwanted cats and dogs in Citrus County community, Precious Paws Rescue launched the program in March 2012 with the help of Floral City Veterinary Hospital. To date, more than 250 surgical procedures have been completed. Now there will be two fullservice veterinary facilities providing the surgeries, and Precious Paws hopes to double that figure within the next year. The procedure for the pet owner is basically unchanged; they purchase a Precious Paws voucher and select either Midway Animal Hospital or Floral City Veterinary Hospital to have their pet sterilized. They make their appointment directly with the veterinary office and bring the pet and the voucher on the day of the surgery. Voucher fees for cats at both Midway and Floral City remain the same. To spay a female cat is $20 and to neuter a male cat is $10. Fees for dogs are based on weight and range from $25 to $75. Vouchers at both veterinary facilities cover the full cost of the surgery. Any extra services requested are the responsibility of the client and must be paid for at the time of the surgery. Vouchers may be purchased from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday at the Precious Paws Adoption Center in the Crystal River Mall. Gretas Touch Grooming and Doggie Day Care on South Florida Avenue in Floral City also sell PPR vouchers Monday through Friday during regular store hours. The program is funded by discounted surgical rates from both Midway Animal Hospital and Floral City Veterinary Hospital, voucher purchase by the pet owner with the remainder of the charges paid by Precious Paws Rescue with donated funds.

TUESDAY, MARCH5, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Virginia Gildersleeve was the only American woman at the 1945 San Francisco conference that created the United Nations. She said, The ability to think straight, some knowledge of the past, some vision of the future, some skill to do useful service, some urge to fit that service into the well-being of the community these are the most vital things education must try to produce. At the bridge table, it is important to think straight, to remember the past bids and plays, and to have some idea of what you plan to do. In this deal, how should South play in two spades? West leads the club ace, cashes the club king, and plays another club. South, with five top losers (two hearts, one diamond and two clubs), needs to find the spade queen to get home. Declarer must remember that neither opponent could open the bidding. And South has already seen seven points from West. However, before guessing how to play the trump suit, declarer should explore for more data. He should play on the red suits to learn who holds those honors. Then he will be sure to know who has the spade queen. At trick four, South leads a heart. Lets assume East takes that trick and shifts to a low diamond. Declarer wins with his king and plays another heart. East wins and cashes his diamond ace. Who has the spade queen? Since East has produced 11 points, it must be West. Remember the passes as well as the bids, and count those high-card points.

I thought everything would happen this year the great friends, the boyfriend, etc. On all of the TV shows, the juniors are having boys over, getting drunk, going on dates, having sex and so much more. I know my life isnt a TV show, but Im no different than last year. I want a boy friend. I want to party. I want to have my first kiss. I want to be a teenager. But I feel as distant from my friends as ever. And there is a boy I really like who is sweet, kind, smart and nonjudgmental, but Im not allowed to date. I know that being a teenager means disobeying my parents, and though that seems like the worst thing I could ever do, Im slipping. I dont know what to do. My grades and alcohol and this boy and drugs are all lurking in my mind. Im tired of being this perfect little angel. I know Im only 16, but what do I do? Troubled in High School Dear Troubled: Dont believe everything you see on TV. Those programs are an enhanced version of what the producers and writers think is exciting to watch. Seeing kids fall apart is interesting like watching a train wreck. Most high school juniors are not out partying, drinking, having sex and doing drugs. They are going to school, studying and working at parttime jobs. And the smart ones are also listening to their parents because they recognize that they have a future to consider. Talk to your parents about dating most kids are allowed to do so at 16. You also can discuss these issues with your school counselor, favorite teachers and other adults you respect and trust. We totally understand that you hoped your life would suddenly become amazing, but please dont be foolish enough to mess up the good things you have by letting your hormones run away with your common sense. Dear Annie: I am a 70-year-old widow who parted ways with my first love 50 years ago. Our only contact since then was five years ago, when I mailed some old pictures of him I had discovered. His thank-you note included an invitation to call them if I was ever in his area. I will be traveling to the city where he lives in April. While I am eager to suggest meeting for lunch, I am not sure this would be proper. I believe he is married, but my intentions are only to catch up with someone for whom I once cared greatly. Should I invite him with his wife? Should I simply shelve the entire idea? Perplexed in Phoenix Dear Phoenix: You are overthinking this. By all means, suggest meeting for lunch, and please include his wife. If you only want to reminisce and catch up, there should be no hint of ulterior motives. You might even make a new friend. Dear Annie: Conflicted Adoptee from Kansas wanted her birth mother to tell her other children that they have a sibling. I gave up a son 30 years ago. When he was 18, we got together to discuss why I gave him up. I had to tell my girls that they have a half-brother. Although that part went well, answering questions from my son was a lot harder. It opened up all kinds of wounds. I was worried about his opinion of me, but he was so mature. He said, I know you are not the same person you were back then. It is difficult to open your heart to someone, even if you feel they have the right to the information. Conflicted should let her birth mother know she isnt judging her, and that she respects her wishes about telling her children. Giving up a child was probably the hardest thing she has ever done.

Associated PressNEW YORK Oil dropped below $90 a barrel for the first time this year Monday, and pump prices dropped 3 cents over the weekend as drivers catch a break after two months of steep increases. Benchmark oil for April delivery fell 56 cents to finish at $90.12 a barrel in trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Earlier, the price fell as low as $89.33 a barrel. The national average for a gallon of gas fell to $3.75 a gallon Monday from $3.78 Friday. At one point this winter the price rose for 36 straight days. The 49-cent increase for January and February set a record for that two-month period. The price of oil declined as markets continued to digest the introduction in the U.S. of automatic government spending cuts, which could hurt the worlds leading economy. Spending cuts of roughly $85 billion automatically kicked in on Friday after President Barack Obama and Congress failed to meet a deadline for striking a deal to avert or soften the reductions.

County officials said they honored Randy Messers request he be laid off even through he planned to resign anyway so that Messer could file for unemployment. Assistant County Administrator Ken Frink said officials decided paying unemployment was better than paying Messers $52,710 salary if he chose to forgo resignation. It was a business decision, Frink said. Messer, former government affairs manager for FDS Disposal, was hired in January 2012 as the countys programs manager for the division of solid waste.

Frink said Messer approached his bosses late last year and said he wanted to resign in order to access his retirement fund. Frink said with Messer leaving, officials decided to eliminate the job. Messer, however, said he would leave only if he was terminated so that he could receive unemployment benefits. Messer was unavailable for comment. Human resources director Sherry Anderson sent Messer a letter Jan. 18 saying his position was being eliminated because it was no longer necessary, according to records. The letter said Messer was placed on administrative leave until Feb. 1, when his employment with the county would be terminated. However, on an employment separation questionnaire, which was not dated, Messer stated a different reason for leaving county employment. He wrote he wanted to access the Florida Retirement System account and needed threemonths separation from county employ to do that. Messers unemployment could cost the county $275 a week up to 26 weeks $7,150, county spokeswoman Lindsay Ubinas said. At the end of the day it cost the county much less than salary and benefits, Frink said. Along with his background at FDS, Messer was the countys hazardous materials coordinator for nine years in the 1990s. He left in 2000 to become president of ACMS Inc., parent company of several Sumter County solid-waste businesses coowned by Citrus County Commissioner Scott Adams. According to Messers personnel file, he left ACMS in 2006 because of a change in company ownership. Adams, who could not be reached for comment, is highly critical of the solid waste division. He said he believes the landfill is mismanaged and its budget is bloated. He questioned last week whether Messers hiring was done as a favor to FDS president William Ray. FDS is the countys largest hauler and biggest landfill customer. Frink said his there was no connection. He also said Messers leaving the county is not connected with Adams criticism of the solid waste division. Absolutely not, Frink said.

Whitaker, principal at Pope John Paul II Catholic School, has a brain-based curriculum that starts with the wee little ones and goes through eighth grade. A few years back, Whitaker came across a program called BrainWare Safari. The program uses video games to stimulate brain activity, teaching children of all ages and all skills to learn at a rapid pace. Last year, third-grade students were tested in cognitive skills before and after using the BrainWare program. Test scores grew in each category. Whitaker is convinced the key to student learning is less to do with specific lessons in reading or writing and more with brain development. Parents of Pope John Paul students notice the difference as well. Krista Josephs daughter, Ali, started PJP II at 4 years old and now is the second grade. My daughter came home with all this knowledge about the brain and it was shocking, Joseph said. I feel were in the future here. The kids at Pope John Paul are getting something very special here. Its not how Whitaker saw it when she took the job 12 years ago. In fact, taking the job itself was not in her plans. Whitaker had been an associate superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in Wisconsin when she and her husband moved to Florida. She had planned to conduct consulting workshops for teachers and parents and was doing that in Miami when someone from PJP was in the audience. The Rev. Richard Jankowski, then pastor at St. Scholastica Catholic Church, convinced Whitaker to take the principals job in Lecanto. God works in mysterious ways, she said. It was such an opportunity to impact teachers. After two years, Whitaker resigned to seek her doctorate, but came back after only a few months. I missed the kids so much. I came back that same year, she said. This is such a wonderful community. Whitaker, who received her doctorate while working full time, oversees a school of 185 students in early childhood through eighth grade. BrainWare started out as a pilot program with 13 children, who showed improvement in their homework and testing. Word got out and more parents wanted to be part of it, Whitaker said. Its now part of the thirdgrade curriculum. Whitaker is such a believer in brain-based learning that BrainWare Safari and the Learning Enhancement Corp. named her outstanding educator of the year in the field of Neuroscience in the classroom and that PJP II will receive the neuroscience-based Teaching and Learning Award from BrainWare next week during brain awareness week. Understanding how the brain works is critical in education, she said. As students become more technologically savvy, educators are learning the changes in their brain activity. Children who once spent their afternoons playing outside now sit behind computers or engage in video games. Kids have more difficulty being creative and using their imagination, she said. That part of the brain is not being activated. Its very difficult for kids to express themselves. Whitaker said the key is focusing thinking in ways that stimulate brains in a positive way. The formative years its much more critical than we even realize, she said. Im concerned what kids are being exposed to.

SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is embarking on one of the first steps to developing a comprehensive conservation plan for Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge Complex, with a public input meeting March 19, according to Refuge Manager Michael Lusk. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. in the Magnolia Ballroom at the Plantation on Crystal River. It is a public forum to hear the publics concerns and what they would like to see from us, Lusk said. Lusk said the meeting, which is being called a scoping, is the first step in the year-long process to develop a 15-year management plan for the refuge. It is something that is mandated by Congress and every refuge has to do it, Lusk said. According USFWS, the first public scoping meeting for the Crystal River refuge happened in February 2008. Officials said much has changed since that scoping in 2008, including assumption of responsibility for the management of Three Sisters Springs by USFWS. A public workshop was held in January, 2011 to specifically address waterway management of Three Sisters Springs. Now, in 2013, additional scoping aims to re-engage the public and to revive development of the future management plan for Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. The agency said the issues of importance to the public it has identified include: Impacts from increasing and changing ecotourism activities. Jurisdictional issues. Regulatory issues. The need for strong and effective existing and new partnerships. The need for effective outreach and environmental education programs to minimize negative impacts from human activities. The need for management of access to Three Sisters Springs when manatees are present. The need for development of the Three Sisters Springs property in accord with the management plan. Threats to refuge habitats, including impacts on water quality and quantity and severe erosion at Three Sisters Springs. Threats to manatees. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Meeting to mull issues with refuge P AT F AHERTY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER While Crystal River High School starts Citrus Countys prom season this weekend, the business side of the annual dance has been going on and will extend through April. With four schools hosting proms and spillover customers from Marion and Hernando counties, prom season can bring a flurry of commerce to certain businesses. Crystal Rivers prom is March 9, Lecanto High School is April 6 and Citrus High School is April 13; all will be at Black Diamond. Seven Rivers Christian High School is April 27 at Glen Lakes. Prom spending got national attention when Visa published survey results showing it had surged from an average of $807 in 2011 to $1,078 in 2012. It can involve gowns, undergarments, shoes, handbags, rental attire, tickets, dinner, flowers, hair, nails, makeup, pictures, limo and post-prom activities. The list can also include tanning, teeth whitening, jewelry, pocket squares, hats, gloves and plenty of hairspray. Whether their tuxedo choice is classic black or camouflage, Stephany Mueller does not let guys leave until they look just right. Mueller manages Karat Gallery Jewelry and Gifts at Crystal River Mall. While the business offers a variety of goods and services, it is prom central for many local students. The store is set up for onsite alterations, and with a large selection in stock, it can get a guy into a tux, vest, formal shirt, tie and shoes pretty quickly, often under the watchful eye of a mother or girlfriend. Its been very busy, Mueller said. Almost any color they can think of we can get it in. And that includes camouflage, a choice for some guys at both Crystal River and Lecanto. Most of the guys that come dont really dress up all the time, she said. We have a folder they can follow and books to look through. Guys can get out the door in the $100 range, a little more if they add shoes, hat or a pocket square. Well dress them from head to toe, she said. The process for girls starts a lot earlier, with fashion shows leading to gown selection, fittings and accessorizing. Mueller said they carry a large selection of gowns. They also have shoes and jewelry. A prom gown at Karats averages about $300 and some go as high as $600, Mueller makes sure only one gown of a style goes to any high school. This will be a busy Saturday for many hair salons as girls come in for their prom day look. Next to a dress, its number two, explained Sharon Malm at New Concepts International Hair Salon in Crystal River. Were pretty well booked; its not a normal Saturday. Most come in to have their hair put up, which can take 30 minutes to an hour and a lot of hair spray, Malm said. The salon uses an iPad and photos to work with the girls and get the right look for their face and gown. Its not a normal Saturday, she said. Well be busy for the next three proms. Girls will spend $40 on the low side, averaging $50 to $70. The prom look also involves makeup. Belk manager Katrina Spires said they are booked solid Saturday, only taking walk-ins if possible.

For some local merchants, annual school dances mean big business C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerAs the county considers joining forces with its neighbor to the south for a greater voice in future transportation projects, issues and conflicts will need to be resolved. Taking a step toward an amicable agreement will be the goal of a specially called workshop on Thursday for the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), as it seeks a merger with the Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The workshop will review and discuss the draft planning area boundary and apportionment plan. The new boundary for the merged MPO would include all of Citrus and Hernando counties as the area where transportation planning functions would be performed. Apportionment county representation on the merged MPO would need to be agreed by both counties. Currently, the Citrus TPO has seven board members: two from each city council Inverness and Crystal River and three from the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). The Hernando MPO, however, seats six board members: all five Hernando County commissioners and the may or of Brooksville. The draft apportionment would limit Citrus County to five instead of seven board members, while Hernando County would retain its current six. Citrus would have three members from the BOCC and one each from each city council, for a total merged MPO membership of 11. Hernando County would hold the majority on the board by one seat as it would account for 55 percent of the combined population of the two counties that compose the new boundary. The workshop will include discussion on the merits of a larger or smaller board, the economic importance of transportation to both Citrus and Hernando counties, and the importance of a partnership and the desire for fairness and equity. The TPOs Technical Advisory Council will meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Lecanto Government Building, 3600 W. Sovereign Path, Lecanto. The Citizens Advisory Council will meet at 3 p.m. The next regular meeting of the TPO board is scheduled at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, March 14, in the Inverness Government Center, 212 W.

House panel rejects Medicaid expansion Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A key legislative panel voted on Monday against expanding Medicaid coverage to roughly 1 million more residents under the federal health overhaul, expressing fears that the federal government would ultimately back out of paying its share and leave the state on the hook for billions. The vote was strictly partisan with House Republicans contending that the states current safety net program which costs about $21 billion a year to cover more than 3 million Floridians is already broken and that adding more patients would only exacerbate problems while increasing the federal deficit. The federal government has offered to pay the full cost of Medicaid expansion for the first three years and 90 percent thereafter. House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston of Plantation called it morally reprehensible that the House was rejecting Medicaid expansion. We are talking about peoples lives, Thurston said. House Speaker Will Weatherford said that the contentious debate in Washington, D.C., over automatic budget cuts and taxes over the past few months proves it would be risky to rely on federal aid. I think theres a lot of uncertainty that is coming from the federal government and to rely on them to expand the Medicaid program with that uncertainty is a very dangerous path, said Weatherford, a Republican from Wesley Chapel. The decision sets up a clash with Gov. Rick Scott, who called Medicaid expansion a compassionate and common sense step to take to help Floridas large uninsured population. He proposed expanding the program for three years or as long as the federal government foots the entire bill. Scott could have an ally with the Florida Senate, which has not yet taken a final stance. A Senate committee scheduled to vote on the issue Monday was postponed, with chairman Sen. Joe Negron asking for more information and saying hed rather get it right than make a hasty decision. He also dismissed the idea of doctor shortages in the current Medicaid program, a common concern among Republicans, as a reason for not expanding the program, saying state lawmakers should be able to find workers if they want a service badly enough. But like the governor, Negron has repeatedly expressed concerns about costs.

Several to Choose From DANIELLE 2013 Newest Model be filled or whether the property could be built on again. But some experts say the fact that the sinkhole claimed a life that of Jeff Bush, 37 and that his body is expected to remain below the surface make rebuilding less likely. Its kind of a bad omen, said Dave Arnold, a hydrogeologist who has surveyed sinkholes for the Southwest Florida Water Management District. This is an even worse omen with someone buried under there. Arnold and other experts expect that once the house is destroyed, crews will work to fill in the hole and the lot will likely remain empty. Depending on the circumstances, past Florida sinkholes have been handled in varied ways. In Maitland, Fla., a sinkhole 325 feet across was discovered in the 1960s as Interstate 4 was built. The highway was diverted around the area, but in 2008 workers began a $9 million project to fill and stabilize the sinkhole in preparation for a planned expansion of the roadway. Engineers say a road can be put over it now without any problems. In Winter Park, Fla., a sinkhole in 1981 swallowed several sports cars, parts of two businesses, the deep end of an Olympic-size swimming pool and a three-bedroom house. It stretched about 350 feet across and caused $2 million in damages. The area became a temporary tourist attraction, but most of it was ultimately deserted, filled with water and became a lake. And in 2002, a sinkhole about 150 feet across and 60 feet deep swallowed oak trees, sidewalk and park benches near an apartment complex in western Orange County, Fla. Two buildings with more than 100 residents were evacuated, but the structures were ultimately saved. Metal sheet piling was placed around the hole to stop the soil from sliding, and it was filled. Often, homeowners find clues to a pending problem by cracks in the foundation or a shifting floor. When that happens, and a sinkhole threat has been established, crews can pump a thick grout a mixture of sand and cement into the ground to fill the holes. It is a costly process, though it is typically paid by insurance companies, and can save a home from being destroyed. You inject the grout under pressure and attempt to fill all the cavities you can find, said Anthony Randazzo, a former University of Florida geology professor who started the consulting firm Geohazards, which handles about 1,000 cases a year of sinkholes and other settlement issues. Though the specifics of what will happen to the Seffner property remain unknown, Randazzo said the hole would have to be filled to keep people from falling in it and to remove a potential neighborhood eyesore. If the family decides to try to sell the property, they would be required to notify prospective buyers of the sinkhole issue. Currently, various county agencies are at the sinkhole site to supervise, but officials havent given a tally of the costs or said who is absorbing them. For now, the focus in Seffner remains on a family mourning a loved one and trying to move on. Two large backhoes scraped and pulled at the house Monday afternoon, with one gently removing possessions including a flag, a jacket, family photographs, a bicycle and a china cabinet. The other machine loaded shattered pieces of furniture and construction material into a huge waste container. The days most solemn moment came at 4 p.m., when demolition stopped and workers joined family members for a brief ceremony. The many flowers and notes that had been left in front of the house were loaded into a tractors bucket, which swung slowly toward the sinkhole and dropped the materials into the hole. There was applause from across the street. Though the houses demolition was completed Monday, crews had not yet finished removing its foundation. impasse, and what happens next is anyones guess. The International Monetary Fund has predicted that the spending cuts could reduce U.S. growth by some 0.5 percentage points in 2013. Traders also said that a report showing weakness in Chinas service sector contributed to the drop in oil. While a month ago oil was close to exceeding $100 a barrel, analysts said prices could continue to slide. A report from JBC Energy in Vienna noted that refineries are undergoing a higher than normal rate of maintenance. That reduces demand for oil, hurting the price. And Jim Ritterbusch of Ritterbusch and Associates in Illinois says recent strength in the dollar is a major reason that oil is down 7 percent a little more than 2 weeks. The increase in the dollar makes crude more expensive and a less attractive investment for traders using other currencies. While the euro was worth over $1.36 on Feb. 4, on Monday it was trading just under $1.30. In the U.S., refinery maintenance contributed to the early-year spike in gasoline prices. Refineries are switching from winter blends of gasoline to summer varieties, which are formulated to reduce pollution. That switch requires some downtime for a refinery, cutting supplies and boosting the cost of gas. The transition is still going on, and could somewhat mitigate the impact of cheaper oil in gas station prices. Brent crude, used to price many kinds of oil imported by U.S. refineries, fell 31 cents to $110.09 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London. In other energy futures trading on the Nymex: Wholesale gasoline fell 3 cents to $3.10 a gallon. Heating oil slipped 1 cent to $2.92 a gallon. Natural gas gained 7 cents to $3.53 per 1,000 cubic feet.

Legislature facing many familiar fights Associated PressTALLAHASSEE New leadership now controls Floridas Republican-led Legislature, where the loquacious Don Gaetz presides in the Senate and 33-year-old Will Weatherford steps into the biggest test of his political career as speaker of the 120-member House of Representatives. With the nine-week session opening Tuesday, the pair agree lawmakers need to focus on important issues like the budget, education, health care, the proposed expansion of Medicaid, property insurance and election reform and not waste time on the inconsequential, which can burden the process. Everybodys making sacrifices to be here, said Weatherford, the second-youngest speaker in state history. Were not up there to mess around. Were here to make a difference. Republican and Democratic leaders are already questioning some of Gov. Rick Scotts priorities in his $74.2 billion budget proposal, including his push to offer a $2,500 acrossthe-board pay raise to school teachers and a one-time bonus for state employees. Gaetz and Weatherford have comfortable Republican majorities to help with their goals. The GOP has a 26-14 advantage in the Senate and 76-44 in the House, although Democratic gains in November have eliminated the two-thirds majority the GOP had in both houses. Scott has reversed his stance in recent weeks on expanding voting opportunities, the expansion of Medicaid and on pay increases for teachers and state workers. His change of heart on the Medicaid issue received a chilly reception by legislative leaders. Gaetz, who said he supports Scotts candidacy for re-election next year, differs with the governor on Medicaid expansion and some spending priorities. I think its way too early to start talking about extra money, Gaetz said, again referring to the budget battle in Washington. Politics, naturally, are always center-stage here, although the main characters are new on the legislative front for the next two sessions. Scott has already begun that midterm pivot on several issues with an eye on boosting his lagging poll numbers with his 2014 reelection bid looming.

A Sterne Agee analyst started coverage of the handbag company with an Underperform rating, saying it may face inventory issues. The mattress maker warned that sales were weak in February, and it will likely fall short of its own goals for the current quarter. The high-end denim and clothing company disclosed that it would not be renewing its CEOs employment contract, which ends June 30. The chemical maker rejected a $563 million cash-and-stock buyout offer from A. Schulman, a supplier of plastic compounds. The oil and gas company said that it will exit the retail business to focus more on its exploration and production business. Stock indexes rose Monday, and the Dow Jones industrial average climbed to within half a percent of its all-time closing high. Utilities and stocks of companies that sell discretionary items to consumers had some of the biggest gains. 40 50 60 $70 DJF Hess HES Close: $68.84 2.30 or 3.5% $39.67$70.77 Vol.: Mkt.

Metabolic Research Center Client DEATHSContinued from Page A6 Associated PressNEW YORK Investors brushed off early jitters about a potential slowdown in China and pushed the Dow to its highest close of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 38.16 points, or 0.3 percent, to 14,127.82. The index is a fraction of a percentage point away from its record close of 14,164, reached on Oct. 9, 2007. Stocks dropped at the opening bell and stayed lower most of the morning amid concern that new steps introduced by the Chinese government to cool the booming housing market in the worlds second-largest economy. Chinese markets were dragged down by housing stocks, which fell sharply after the countrys cabinet ordered new measures to rein in home prices. China will raise minimum down payments in areas where prices are deemed to be rising too fast and crack down on efforts to evade limits on how many properties each buyer can acquire. The U.S. market continues to digest the negative news and hang tough, said Ryan Detrick, a senior strategist at Schaeffers Investment Research. The stock market has rallied this year on optimism that the U.S. housing market is recovering and signs that companies are hiring more. Strong corporate earnings and continuing economic stimulus from the Federal Reserve have also boosted stock prices. Despite having already logged strong gains this year, stocks may still be able to maintain their momentum as investors move money out of bonds, Rob Lutts, chief investment officer at Cabot Money Management, said. Its all about where the money is going, Lutts said. If the money that is sitting on the sideline, or in bonds, is moving into equities that alone is enough to create that shift. Investors put $2.8 billion into U.S. stock mutual funds in the week ending Feb. 27, according to Lipper. Thats the eighth straight week investors have put more money into stocks, the longest streak of inflows in almost two years. The Dow has risen 7.8 percent so far this year and the S&P 500 index is 6.9 percent higher, while the yield on the 10-year Treasury note remains below 2 percent. The yield, which moves inversely to its price, rose 3 basis points to 1.87 percent Monday. Surging stocks in record territory Business BRIEFS Heinz CEO entitled to $56 million golden parachute NEW YORK Heinz CEO William Johnson is entitled to a golden parachute worth $56 million if hes fired by the companys new owners. Warren Buffets Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital announced last month they were buying the ketchup maker for $23.3 billion. Pittsburgh-based Heinz disclosed Johnsons deal in a regulatory filing Monday. The deal lets Johnson walk away with $40 million at any time if he chooses. He would be entitled to another $16 million if the new owners were to let him go. White House: cellphone unlocking should be legal NEW YORK An Obama administration adviser said the White House believes smartphone and tablet users should be allowed to unlock their phones and use the devices on the network of their choosing. In a blog post entitled Its time to legalize cellphone unlocking, R. David Edelman, White House adviser on Internet, innovation and privacy, responded to a petition about the issue by saying the administration feels consumers should be allowed to unlock their phones without civil or criminal penalties, especially if the phones were purchased secondhand or as gifts. Edelman said the administrations opinion on the matter also goes for tablets, since they are becoming similar to smartphones. Boeing ready to move on 787 fix, if FAA approvesBoeing said Monday that it is set to move quickly to get its 787s back in the air if it gets federal approval for a fix for the batteries that have grounded the planes. The Federal Aviation Administration is considering a plan that Boeing submitted on Feb. 22 for fixing the batteries. The FAA has said it expects its experts to recommend this week whether to accept the plan. Hess, under pressure, to exit retail businessNEW YORK Hess is getting out of the gas station business and ridding itself of its energy trading and marketing businesses, as it shifts its focus further into exploration and production. The company will also nominate a slate of six independent directors to its board, replacing six that already hold seats. The announcement arrives about a month after the hedge fund Elliott Management, one of the companys largest shareholders, accused the board of poor oversight, and said that the companys management was responsible for more than a decade of failures.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 2013 Short sighted The Chronicle editorial about the loss of the Citrus County Veterans Service officer is yet another example of the local politicians not being able to recognize the forest because of the trees. Years ago in my search for a peaceful environment in which to retire, I happened upon Inverness. The first sign I saw was Inverness, Veteran Friendly Community. Next I came upon a beautiful Veterans of Foreign Wars post, overlooking the lake. Fishing, golf, Elks, Eagles, entertainment, parks on and on the positives hit me. Inverness is now my home. By some accounts, Citrus County has the highest number of veterans per capita in Florida. Therein lies the value of not just the county veterans service officer but, to my way of thinking, a perfect match to help offset the revenue loss of the Duke Power fiasco. As more and more veterans seek the peace of retirement, what is Citrus County doing to invite them for a look? The Chronicle reports total veterans compensation not retirement/social Security to local veterans at $63 million. The VSO helps daily to bring revenue into the county. Every county position should be as important as the VSO is to the life blood and continuation of peace in our beautiful county. I may be wrong but I think some folks who talk a lot and like to have their picture in the paper have taken this important segment of our society for granted. The low pay of a talented, experienced, military retiree Veteran Service Officer is one indication. Perhaps some advertising of Citrus County at military bases in the cold north and Midwest would be repaid with new citizens who bring money. The VFW, Vietnam Veterans of America, American Legion, etc have magazines and other publication that reach millions across the country. KISS keep it short and simple can go a long way. You dont need to hire Madison Avenue types. The county has an untapped reservoir of good citizens with talent and experience that would help us to spread the word. The county just needs to see the veterans the forest full of trees. Bob Barry Vietnam Veterans of America National Board of Directors Inverness Jobs scarce in US I have young family members who graduated from college and are unable to find jobs. I dont mind the United States granting people citizenship as long as we need extra workers. But to grant some sort of amnesty when unemployment is so high just does not make sense. Claude Strass Homosassa s Rick Scott really our next education governor? In his proposed 2013-14 budget, Scott suggests that Florida classroom teachers receive an across-the-board $2,500 raise. He sent a letter to the chairman of the state Board of Education for presentation at the boards Feb. 25 meeting outlining the plan, which would cost a hefty $480 million. The governor also recommended spending an additional $14 million for teachers classroom supplies. Its easy to be cynical about such announcements. Scott proved to be a virtual nemesis of rank-and-file teachers over the past two years, cutting the states education budget and supporting the elimination of teacher tenure. Political realities have set in, and he seems amazed people dont love him for the job hes doing. In the wake of fellow Republicans drubbing in the last election, Scott suddenly faces the prospect of a very tough reelection, likely against nowDemocrat Charlie Crist. So Scotts about-face could be his attempt to woo voters, especially teachers, with a kinder, gentler side. In his letter to the education board proposing pay increases, he said they would be a way to strategically invest in statewide priorities that will encourage job creation for generations to come. In other words, hes justifying the raises on the same grounds that got him elected an appeal to job creation. He also said in the letter that the states teachers earned the raise because of Floridas improvement in one national review and rises in test scores and graduation rates. Even assuming those results are sound, they owe no thanks to Scotts policies, but never mind. I offer another reason for raising pay for all teachers: simple economics. Does anybody in our owned-by-theChamber-of-Commerce, freeenterprise-forever state legislature believe teachers are exempt from one of economics basic rules that talented workers will follow higher pay? If we want to know why our public education system fares poorly compared with other states, could it be our best teachers run to other states that pay more? Heres another reason to support higher pay for teachers. In its zeal to ferret out whom they believe to be lazy, indifferent or incompetent teachers, our legislators put the blame for poorly performing schools on the wrong side of the equation. It is students who ought to be held accountable, as they were in the past. When I attended public school, the common assumption was if a kid brought home a bad grade, it was because he was lazy, indifferent or incompetent. The onus was on students to take personal responsibility theres a Republican phrase for you for their educations. It was not the teacher at fault when a student brought home straight Ds. When did we start assuming the blame lay with a bad teacher? But of course that is not the political mantra these days. Reports are that legislators are cool to Gov. Scotts proposal for across-the-board pay increases because they favor instead wait for it merit increases. Never mind teacher and school evaluations based on test scores are increasingly proving to be failed policy. Scott in his letter touts teachers as the cornerstone of educational success. Hes right, of course, but who is listening? Not the tea party nor even the legislative leadership. Not teachers themselves, after the way he treated them in the past. The same political fear that drove Scott might actually get through to enough legislators to give Floridas teachers boosts in pay and morale. But Rick Scott shouldnt expect anyone who supports public education to tumble over themselves rushing to thank him. Cary McMullen is a journalist and editor who lives in Lakeland.

In his bid for a seat on the Citrus County Commission, Scott Adams positioned himself as a staunch foe of government. It worked. Claiming 40 percent of a four-way race for the District 5 seat, Adams was swept into office by voters fed up with a county government they perceive as wasteful and unresponsive. The bombastic commissioner has wasted little time and fewer words assailing the offices and officers of Citrus County. Hes called out county staff as being overpaid and indolent. At successive commission meetings, he made motions to fire the county administrator and the county attorney. Hes even called for a grand jury investigation into the workings of county government, convinced theres an undercurrent of corruption and impropriety that needs rooting out if the citizens hes sworn to represent are to be justly represented. His demeanor toward his colleagues is at times condescending and his disposition unwaveringly adversarial. Its exactly what his supporters want to see. In letters to the editor, in calls to theChronicle in posts on his Facebook page and in response to coverage of his endeavors, theyve heaped praise on the boards newest member, urging him to press harder, to dig deeper, to disrupt and unsettle the local establishment. Hes obliged. In those same venues, Adams has kept up his campaign, firing salvos at the very people he has to sit next to in order to do the business of county government. Heres the hitch: Adams is no longer on the campaign trail. Hes now part of the problem and if he truly wants to fix it, he needs to work within the bureaucratic apparatus to give his constituents their due. As a case in point, Adams levied a bevy of cost-cutting suggestions at the Feb. 26 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners. Among them: Put the brakes on Port Citrus; cut commissioners pay by $5,000; consolidate the countys human resource departments; consolidate the countys satellite offices; analyze purchasing procedures and the retention of consultants and lobbyists; and reevaluate replacement criteria for the countys vehicle fleet. All are worthwhile suggestions, met by resistance not because of their merit, but because of Adams methods. Clearly unsatisfied with the boards reaction to his ideas, he lashed out at a fellow commissioner, patronizingly apologizing for his colleagues implied lack of understanding and saying, I gave you a solution, but you dont want it. We all want solutions, but we want to arrive at them collegially. We must give the commissioner the benefit of the doubt and assume his intentions are pure. He wants change, and he wants it now. But he might not get it ever if he continues to butt heads with the very people he must work with to effect that change. For the sake of a county facing exceptional challenges in unfavorable conditions, we urge Commissioner Adams to temper his rhetoric. This is not a call for complacency; disagreement among commissioners is inevitable and necessary, but discord does not lend itself to effective representation. Adams has made his presence known; now the onus is on the commissioner to prove to his colleagues and his constituents that his posture has purpose.

Mr. Simmons Super Bowl family time was virtually uprooted by a halftime Victorias Secret commercial that embarrassed everyone. Pervert jokes were lobbed at those who didnt turn away from the screen, and kids left the room. Simmons himself prayed, asking God to condemn the producers, but readers were left wondering: condemned to what? I was a bit surprised Mr. Simmons family even stayed on that station during halftime. Apparently, they neither saw nor heard of Janet Jacksons unfortunate costume malfunction during Super Bowl XXXVIIs halftime. What a shocker that was! Mr. Simmons noted the stadiums crowd loved halftime, but he left it to readers to decide whether or not the euphoria was an indication of a breakdown of our society. He points out, One thing you cant deny is that kids werent murderers then. I dont know which or what then Mr. Simmons was talking about, and I couldnt find statistics on murder rates by kids, but he will be glad to hear that last years homicide rate (4.8 murders/100,000 population) was a 50-year low.

He added, Please welcome Ted LaPorte from Citrus County, Florida. (Cheering) Ahem, I adjusted my iPad mini economy teleprompter containing my speech and began. The first thing tonight is for everyone to move to their new clearly marked seats. You will be sitting in alphabetical order tonight. This meeting is nonpartisan, so everyone will sit without prejudice to race, color, creed or party. Yes the military and judges, everyone get into alphabetical order Americans together. Shake hands. New rule: There will be no standing during speeches. That interferes with the view from behind and intimidates others to rise unnecessarily. Clap, yes, stand, no. Tomorrow our Congress will begin this same procedure alphabetical order. No aisle separation. No grouping by party or tenure or other commonality, other than Americanism. Shake hands, meet your new neighbors. On your desks tomorrow will be a sample ballot; as our citizens use to vote. This will be the new form required for our congress to vote on bills. Each eligible member of Congress with proper photo ID can pick up a ballot and proceed to a voting booth, mark their ballot and deposit it in the secure ballot box. Absentee voting is prohibited.

A sixth-grader who was injured in an altercation with another boy at school two months ago was taken off life support and died, and his suburban school district on Monday made extra counselors available to fellow students.

Teens job search inspires othersINDIANAPOLIS Donations have been pouring in since a story went viral online about an Indianapolis teenager who was walking 10 miles to a job interview during an ice storm when he was picked up by a restaurant owner who offered him a job. Now, the pair is starting a foundation to help other job hunters. Jhaqueil Reagan, 18, was walking to a job interview at a thrift store two weeks ago when he cut through the parking lot of Cajun restaurant Papa Roux. He asked the restaurants owner, Art Bouvier, how much farther he had to go. Bouvier told him the store was about 6 or 7 miles down the road. I assumed he was going to get on the bus or something, Bouvier recalled. But Reagan couldnt afford bus fare, so he kept walking. Bouvier and his wife encountered the teenager about 20 minutes later while they were driving to run an errand. Bouvier offered Reagan a ride and found out hed planned on walking the whole way. I decided Id hire him, Bouvier said.

US: UN diplomats drink too much UNITED NATIONS The United States thinks the United Nations has a drinking problem. Ambassador Joseph M. Torsella, who represents the U.S. on the U.N.s budget committee, said Monday the tense process of negotiating the world bodys annual budget is made more complicated by the number of diplomats who turn up drunk. The U.N. budget is finalized in December, when holiday parties apparently lead to some revelry spilling over into budget negotiations.

Troops in between the two sides were overwhelmed by police tear gas, one army colonel was wounded by live fire, and troops even opened fire over the heads of police, bringing cheers from protesters. Three policemen and three civilians were killed in the fighting, and troops stood by as protesters torched a government complex Monday that contains the citys main police building.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressVATICAN CITY Cardinals said Monday they want to talk to Vatican managers about allegations of corruption and cronyism within the top levels of the Catholic Church before they elect the next pope, evidence that a scandal over leaked papal documents is casting a shadow over the conclave and setting up one of the most unpredictable papal elections in recent times. The Vatican said 107 of the 115 voting-age cardinals attended the first day of pre-conclave meetings, at which cardinals organize the election, discuss the problems of the church and get to know one another before voting. The red-capped princes of the church took an oath of secrecy and decided to pen a letter of greeting and gratitude to Benedict XVI, whose resignation has thrown the church into turmoil amid a torrent of scandals inside and out of the Vatican. I would imagine that as we move along there will be questioning of cardinals involved in the governing of the Curia to see what they think has to be changed, and in that context anything can come up, said U.S. Cardinal Francis George. The Holy Sees administrative shortcomings were thrust into stark relief last year with the publication of documents stolen from Benedicts desk that exposed the petty infighting, turf battles and allegations of corruption, nepotism and cronyism in the highest echelons of the Catholic Church. The popes butler was convicted of stealing the papers and leaking them to a journalist; he eventually received a papal pardon. The emeritus pope, meanwhile, remained holed up at the papal residence at Castel Gandolfo, his temporary retirement home while the discussions on picking his successor kick into gear in Rome. No date has been set yet for the conclave and one may not be decided on officially for a few more days; the dean of the College of Cardinals has said a date wont be finalized until all the cardinals have arrived. Cardinals probe Vatican turmoil US leaders seeking information on corruption scandals Associated PressBAKERSFIELD, Calif. A nurses refusal to give CPR to a dying 87-year-old woman at a California independent living home despite desperate pleas from a 911 dispatcher has prompted outrage and spawned a criminal investigation. The harrowing 7-minute, 16-second call also raised concerns that policies at senior living facilities could prevent staff from intervening in medical emergencies. It prompted calls for legislation Monday to prevent a repeat of what happened Feb. 26 at the Glenwood Gardens in Bakersfield. Loraine Bayless collapsed in the dining room of the retirement home that offers many levels of care. She lived in the independent living building, which state officials said is like a senior apartment complex and doesnt operate under licensing oversight. Independent living facilities should not have a policy that says you can stand there and watch somebody die, said Pat McGinnis, founder of California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform, a consumer advocacy group. How a nurse can do that is beyond comprehension. In all her years of advocating for the elderly, McGinnis said: This was so horrifying. Ive never seen this happen before. State officials did not know Monday whether the woman who talked to the 911 dispatcher actually was a nurse, or just identified herself as one during the call. She said one of the homes policies prevented her from doing CPR, according to an audio recording of the call. The executive director of Glenwood Gardens, Jeffrey Toomer, defended the nurse in a written statement, saying she followed the facilitys policy. During the call, an unidentified woman called from her cellphone, and asked for paramedics to be sent to help the woman. Later, a woman who identified herself as the nurse got on the phone and told dispatcher Tracey Halvorson she was not permitted to do CPR on the woman. Halvorson urged the nurse to start CPR, warning the consequences could be dire if no one tried to revive the woman, who had been laid out on the floor on her instructions. I understand if your boss is telling you, you cant do it, the dispatcher said. But ... as a human being ... you know, is there anybody thats willing to help this lady and not let her die? Not at this time, the nurse answered. Halvorson assured the nurse that Glenwood couldnt be sued if anything went wrong in attempts to resuscitate the resident, saying the local emergency medical system takes the liability for this call. Later in the call, Halvorson asked, Is there a gardener? Any staff, anyone who doesnt work for you? Anywhere? Can we flag someone down in the street and get them to help this lady? Can we flag a stranger down? I bet a stranger would help her. I understand if your facility is not willing to do that. Give the phone to a passer-by. This woman is not breathing enough. She is going to die if we dont get this started, do you understand? The woman had no pulse and wasnt breathing when fire crews reached her, Galagaza said.

Associated PressJERUSALEM Israels decision to launch a pair of Palestinian-only bus lines in the West Bank on Monday presented by the government as a goodwill gesture, assailed by critics as racism and welcomed by Palestinian riders is shining a light on the messy situation created by 45 years of military occupation and Jewish settlements in the area. While full and formal peace remains distant, the Jewish and Palestinian populations of the West Bank are so intertwined that daily routines are often shaped in mind-boggling ways. Military checkpoints, special permits and different sets of laws are all part of everyday life, and even steps that are well-intentioned, such as the new bus lines, can backfire and spark controversy. Israeli peace activists condemned the bus lines as racist, while Palestinian riders seemed to like the arrangement. Israeli officials insisted Palestinians could still ride regular buses if they choose despite Palestinian claims they are hardly welcomed there by Jewish settlers. Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Mideast war and has built a network of settlements throughout the territory that are now home to more than 300,000 Israelis. Yet another 200,000 live in adjacent east Jerusalem occupied, annexed and expanded to include land that was once in the West Bank. Israel said it decided to launch the new bus lines to help make life easier for Palestinians permitted to work in Israel, where jobs are more abundant and better paying than in the West Bank. After several years of relative quiet, nearly 40,000 Palestinians are allowed to enter Israel to work each day, the highest level since the Palestinian uprising a decade ago. Officials said the buses would ease the burden on Palestinian laborers, who must often take grueling, circuitous routes on Israeli public transportation or rely on pricey taxis to enter Israel. Israeli officials stressed no one was forced to use the new lines and Palestinians were still permitted to ride on Israeli buses if they desired.

RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Three runs pushed across in the top half of the first inning by Wildwood not a good start for Lecantos softball team. The bottom half of the inning, however, provided quite a tonic. So did the rest of this abbreviated contest, with the Panthers rolling to an 18-3 victory Monday in a game called after three innings by the 15-run mercy rule. Amber Atkinson was again the sparkplug for Lecanto, clobbering her third grand slam of the season in only seven games (the Panthers are 3-4) in the opening inning, to go with a single. She had four runs batted in and four runs scored. Against The Villages in the season opener, Atkinson had two grand slams. The round-tripper against the Wildcats was also her fifth homer of the season (she hit two last week against Zephyr Hills). Ive got a good feeling about this season, Atkinson said. Ive just got to be patient and let my hands do the work. Atkinson was quick to give additional credit to her teammates for her success thus far and against Wildwood the praise was definitely earned. Paige Richards collected two hits and drove in three runs while scoring a pair, Lilly Parrish scored three runs while hitting a double and getting hit by a pitch, Emily Havarnack had one hit, two RBI and a run scored and Amber Hopkins collected a pinch-hit single and an RBI. Amber Myers got the pitching win for Lecanto. I thought Wildwood did a great job, Gonzaga No. 1 in AP Top 25 for first time Associated PressSPOKANE, Wash.T he to-do list for the Gonzaga basketball team got shorter Monday: For the first time, the Zags were ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 poll. Sweet, but it may get bumpier from there. Next: Avoiding the potholes that have stopped every other No. 1 this season, then finding a way to the Final Four. We dont believe there is any jinx, assistant coach Tommy Lloyd said, subbing for coach Mark Few, who was said to be fly fishing and unavailable for comment. Obviously, its a dream for us, the ultimate accomplishment. Staying No. 1 has been tough this season, with Gonzaga the fifth school to hold the spot after replacing Indiana this week. The others were Duke, Louisville and Michigan. Gonzaga, a small Jesuit school in Spokane, is where crooner Bing Crosby went and where John Stockton threaded pinpoint passes. It has the best record in Division I at 29-2 following weekend wins against BYU and Portland. The Hoosiers, beaten by Minnesota last week, dropped to No. 2. Were not necessarily in pursuit of a ranking, Lloyd said. Were trying to get to the NCAA tournament. When thats over, as coaches we can look back and realize what an accomplishment it is and how difficult it is. The Zags are the 57th school to be ranked No. 1 since the AP poll began in January 1949. The school is considered a mid-major and reached No. 2 for the first time last week. Now it will play for the first time at No. 1 on Saturday night in the West Coast Conference semifinals. The school received 51 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel, 44 more than Indiana. Duke, winners over Miami after a loss to Virginia, remained third with five first-place votes. Kansas and Georgetown both jumped two spots to fourth and fifth. The Hoyas received the other two first-place votes. Miami, Michigan, Louisville, Kansas State and Michigan State rounded out the top 10. Virginia Commonwealth and UCLA, both ranked earlier in the season, returned to the poll at 21st and 23rd, respectively. Gonzagas rise to the top comes 14 years after the school burst onto the national scene with a surprise run to the final eight of the NCAA tournament. Since then, Few has guided the Zags to 12 conference titles, 13 trips to the tournament and four trips to the round of 16. Along the way, Gonzaga has produced a slew of NBA players, including Dan Dickau, Adam Morrison, Ronny Turiaf, Austin Daye, Robert Sacre and Jeremy Pargo. The team features players from Canada, France, Germany and Poland along with Stocktons son, David. Kelly Olynyk, the 7-foot Canadian center, leads the team in scoring at nearly 18 points a game and averages seven rebounds. He calls the No. 1 ranking a great milestone. We have a special team this year, he said. It shows that college basketball in the rest of the country has a lot of respect for us. Spokane is a city of 200,000 near the Idaho and Canadian borders. Its a bluecollar town, far from the high-tech wealth of the Seattle area. But basketball is one place where the states second-largest city outshines Seattle. Gonzaga, in fact, is the first team from the state of Washington to be ranked No. 1. At the time of Gonzagas run to the final eight, the school had fewer than 5,000 students and was struggling with enrollment and budget issues. Today, enrollment is at 7,800 and new buildings are popping up on campus all the time. The 6,000-seat McCarthey Athletic Center, which opened in 2004, has been sold out for all but one game. The Zags have rewarded their fans with a 120-8 home record there. It hasnt been easy. Every year, the Zags seem to take on a tougher nonconference schedule to make up for their WCC schedule. This year they own wins over No. 9 Kansas State, No. 13 Oklahoma State, plus Clemson, Oklahoma, Baylor, Washington State and West Virginia. Their only losses are to Illinois and Butler. Weve had our struggles and battles, but weve made the right adjustments and calls, Lloyd said. We must be doing something right. For now, the Zags, newly anointed No. 1, head to the league tournament in Las Vegas. Lloyd knows such honors go only so far. I dont think those teams are going to care where we are ranked, he said. Malkin fuels rally, Pens top Lightning Associated PressPITTSBURGH Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin scored less than 2 minutes apart in the third period and the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied past the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Monday night. Chris Kunitz added his 12th of the season for Pittsburgh and James Neal scored an empty-net goal in the final minute as the Penguins sent the struggling Lightning to their fifth straight loss. Malkin, making his return after missing four games due to a concussion, tied it 5:38 into the third period on a pretty breakaway. Crosby put Pittsburgh in front moments later with a slap shot from the slot that zipped past Anders Lindback and into the net. Tampa Bays Steven Stamkos scored twice to push his leagueleading total to 17, but it wasnt enough to stop the Lightnings slide. Gonzaga head coach Mark Few shouts to his team during a recent game. Few has led the Zags to the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press poll for the first time in school history.

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE Lecanto coach Robert Dupler said. They really did, scoring those three runs in the first inning. Theyve got a young team and they played hard. We can hit the ball. Just hit the ball hard and good things will happen. Hitting hasnt plagued the Panthers, its been mistakes in the field or on the bases. Dupler estimated his team has committed more than 50 errors already this season. Its been a problem all year, he said of his teams fielding. Were trying to cut down on our errors. Were trying to cut down on our mistakes. Weve got Citrus coming in (tonight), and theyre the best team in the district. Theyre the top dog, and it will be a big test for us. It will be more of a test than Wildwood could provide. For example, Lecanto scored six runs in the third inning on just one hit, Hopkins RBI single. Wildwood seventh-grade pitchers Passion Mills and Jacy Green combined to walk four batters and hit another. Three errors in the field didnt help, either.

PITTSBURGH STEELERSAgreed to terms with CB William Gay on a three-year contract. Marc-Andre Fleury helped shore up a leaky Pittsburgh defense by making 24 saves as the NHLs two highest-scoring teams kept things in check until the third period. Tampa Bay starting goaltender Mathieu Garon left early in the second period with a lower-body injury, pressing Lindback into action. Lindback stopped 16 shots, but was overmatched when two of the leagues best players put on a show early in the third period. Pittsburgh allowed the Lightning one power play and kept Tampa Bay in check for long portions save for a brief breakdown in the second period. Stamkos scored from the front of the net when the Penguins decided to leave him by himself on the doorstep. The Lightning, who blew an early two-goal lead in a loss to Boston on Saturday, again faltered in the third while Pittsburgh continued its mastery of Tampa Bay at least during the regular season.

Clarke MacArthur, Jay McClement and Phil Kessel with his first goal on home ice this season scored in the third period for Toronto. Kadri connected in the first period and assisted on MacArthurs goal to earn points in his fifth straight game. James Reimer made 28 saves for the win.

The other tagged players are Buffalo safety Jairus Byrd, Chicago defensive tackle Henry Melton, Cincinnati defensive end Michael Johnson, Denver offensive tackle Ryan Clady and Indianapolis punter Pat McAfee. All eight are non-exclusive franchise players. With the non-exclusive tag, his team has the right to match any offer sheet, or get two first-round draft picks in return for allowing him to leave.

E NTERTAINMENT Page B4 TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday A temptation to make some new changes in your basic lifestyle could be prevalent in the year ahead. As long as your plans arent unrealistic or impractical, all should work out quite well. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Nothing worth bragging about is likely to be accomplished if you are too wishywashy. In fact, your inability to make up your mind could drive everyone crazy. Aries (March 21-April 19) Dont get so carried away by how well others are doing you forget to concentrate on furthering your own abilities. Try to focus only on your own efforts. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Just because a certain tactic works well for a friend doesnt necessarily mean it will for you. Experiment to find your own game plan and then stick to it. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Steer clear of any involvement in which you have no say in the decisionmaking. Plans made entirely by others might not be best for your interests. Cancer (June 21-July 22) It wont take you long to lose points with others if you dont hold yourself accountable for your mistakes. This will be especially true if you put the blame everywhere but on yourself. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Wasted time will become a critical factor in hampering your productivity. The chances for accomplishing your aims will be in direct proportion to the time you spend dilly-dallying. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If you and your mate are facing a difficult decision, try to work it out yourselves instead of discussing it with outsiders, especially in-laws. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) In order to spare the feelings of another, you might rework the facts. Sadly, when the truth comes out, it will only anger the person whom you wanted to help. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) When it comes to people who helped you acquire something you badly wanted, of course you should share the rewards. Just dont feel obligated to make a payoff to those who did nothing. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) There is a chance one of your well-intentioned gestures might produce some unintended and unpleasant effects, causing others to have difficulty in discerning your motives. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Under most conditions you are a rather determined person. However, friends could talk you into doing things you know you shouldnt, causing you much guilt later. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A lot of disappointment is possible if you base your expectations on unrealistic premises. Make it a point to try to see things for what they are and not as you wish them to be.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who writes for Glee, penned the four-issue story arc Archie Meets Glee that sees Riverdale and McKinley cross dimensions, blending the snark of the television show and the long-standing wholesomeness of Archie, Jughead and Betty, among others. Associated PressLOS ANGELES It wasnt exactly a mighty victory, but Jack the Giant Slayer won the weekend at the box office. The Warner Bros. 3-D action extravaganza, based on the Jack and the Beanstalk legend, made just $28 million to debut at No. 1, according to Sunday studio estimates. It had a reported budget of just under $200 million. Jack comes from Bryan Singer, director of The Usual Suspects and the first two XMen movies. It stars Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor, Ian McShane and Stanley Tucci. Among other new releases, the college romp & Over from Relativity Media made only $9 million this weekend to open in third place. And the horror sequel The Last Exorcism Part II from CBS Films debuted in fourth place with just over $8 million. Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. executive vice president of theatrical distribution, said Jack the Giant Slayer opened lower than the studio had hoped, but hes encouraged by its CinemaScore, which was a B-plus overall and an A among viewers under 18. One bit of good news for Jack is that it had a 56-percent uptick from Friday to Saturday, suggesting strong word-of-mouth and more family audiences for the PG-13 adventure. That tells us that the audiences that are seeing it really do like it, Goldstein said. The international opening in Asia has been very strong the 3-D component of the special effects works in a big way outside the domestic marketplace. This is the sixth weekend in a row that movie ticket sales are down, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. He pointed out that many of the action pictures aimed at men this year including Snitch, The Last Stand, Bullet to the Head and Parker have been disappointments at the box office. Other films have done OK but we need to do better than OK to keep up with last years pace, he said. Where is the audience? I dont want to overstate this, but where are the guys? Among the few bright spots, the Jason Bateman-Melissa McCarthy comedy Identity Thief has become the first film to cross the $100 million mark this year. Now in its fourth week in theaters, the Universal movie has made $107.4 million. This is a tough marketplace right now. Everything is underperforming, Dergarabedian said. There hasnt been a huge breakout hit yet. For every Identity Thief there have probably been 10 other films that have underperformed. Meanwhile, winners at last weekends Academy Awards, including Argo, Silver Linings Playbook and Life of Pi, are still sticking around in the top 20 after several months in theaters, further underscoring the weakness of recent new releases. But Dergarabedian was optimistic that things will turn around with the opening next week of Disneys Oz the Great and Powerful, a muchanticipated prequel to The Wizard of Oz starring James Franco and directed by Sam Raimi. Its expected to open in the $75-100 million range. We need the cavalry to arrive and we need them soon, he said. Maybe James Franco is the cavalry.Box office weekend numbers 1.

Ho-hum debut Associated PressLOS ANGELES From week to week, fans simply never know which characters will survive the relentless zombie attacks on AMCs hit series The Walking Dead. That unpredictability keeps viewers on the edge of their seats and the shows stars in a constant state of alertness. You see series and they last a long time and sometimes the writing gets lazy or the acting gets lazy. Because were in a zombie apocalypse and anyone can go at any time, it sort of keeps us fresh and on our toes, Norman Reedus told The Associated Press on Friday. Fans lined up around the block to watch a panel discussion with Reedus and his co-stars at Paleyfest, the annual Southern California TV celebration. Many in the crowd showed their support for Reedus crossbow-wielding character, Daryl Dixon, with their If Daryl dies we riot! T-shirts. The 44-year-old actor says his vocal fan base is responsible for his characters impressive longevity in a series that seems to have no qualms in axing its most popular characters. Hell yes. Oh my god, yes, he said. (Theyre) keeping me on the show. The Walking Dead focuses on a rag-tag band of surviving refugees, including unruly brothers Daryl and Merle Dixon, who were not part of the series comic book origins. When asked about his breakout star status, Reedus becomes humble and turns the spotlight on his Golden Globe-nominated cast. Fans keep love alive for Walking Dead star Glee and Archie crossover Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Blaine Anderson and Kevin Keller? Betty Cooper and Noah Puckerman? Things are not as they usually are in the halls of William McKinley and Riverdale high schools. And thats just the way it should be, said Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who writes for Glee and penned the fourissue story arc, Archie Meets Glee, that sees Riverdale and McKinleys famous and vocally talented students come together in a crossover crash that blends the snark of the television show and the longstanding wholesomeness of Archie, Jughead and Betty, among others. The two worlds combine this week in the pages of Archie Comics No. 641, a story drawn by artist Dan Parent that extends through issue 644. Show creator Ryan Murphy said the story honors and celebrates the two worlds. Not just their similarities, but their differences, which Ive think weve done. So what prompted it? A friendship between AguirreSacasa and Archie Comics coCEO Jon Goldwater, who met at New York Comic Con in 2011. The Archie brand is very versatile and were continuing to explore our limits every day, Goldwater said of the latest crossover. How perfectly these worlds mesh and how funny the comparisons are between the characters, said Aguirre-Sacasa, who was given free rein to tell the story that uses the conventions of wormholes and time warps to place the characters in the different universes. The idea was that rather than just have them meet at a competition to do something that was a little bit more comic bookish, he said, adding that hes long been a lover of comic books, science fiction and alternate realities. The kids from both sides will have to figure out how to get home but, in the meantime, why not have some fun? Once you got that big story up and running you could tell a lot more little stories, Aguirre-Sacasa said.

Barrington Place celebrates National Nutrition Month Special to the ChronicleLECANTO A ccording the American Academy of Family Physicians, nearly one in 10 seniors in America suffers from poor nutrition. This can exacerbate problems already common among seniors, including depression, improper healing, and a depressed immune system. Emeritus at Barrington Place, part of Emeritus Senior Living, the nations largest assisted living and memory care provider, is joining hands with all Emeritus communities across the country to help combat this problem by delivering 10,000 meals to seniors in 60 days and visiting with them to ensure they are able to get the nutrition they need every day. Seniors may not get the nutrition they need for a variety of reasons, said John Stathos, dining services director. For some, its due to a lack of financial resources; for others, a lack of reliable transportation. And in many cases, isolation and depression have caused seniors to lose interest in cooking and eating healthfully. Emeritus at Barrington Place provides outreach to seniors who live at home through its Home Visits program, where dedicated senior living professionals visit people in their homes to identify where they could use help and connect them with the services they need. We are committed to making sure that every senior in need in this area finds the combination of programs and services that serves them best, even if they do not live with us, said Jackie Merz, executive director. The 10,000 Meals initiative also supports our Safely Somewhere program, ensuring that no matter where a senior lives, they are safe and living a purposeful life. To help meet their goal, Emeritus is asking for the help. If you know of a local senior who could use a nutritious meal, call Emeritus at Barrington Place at 352746-2273. Well deliver the meal along with a friendly face and some good conversation, Merz said. Emeritus Senior Living, headquartered in Seattle, Wash., is the nations largest memory care and assisted living provider, with the ability to serve nearly 50,000 residents. More than 30,000 employees support some 480 communities throughout 45 states coast to coast.

I have mentioned the fact that through aggressive screening programs, early detection, and better treatments, the number of cancer survivors in this country continues to grow. We often speak about screening for colon, breast, prostate, cervical and skin cancer, because these screening programs work. But you really never hear about screening for lung cancer, and there are many reasons you do not. However, the lack of discussion regarding this topic may be coming Low-dose CT screens See BENNETT / Page C3 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Do not ignore anemia R ecently, I saw a 75-year-old patient. She was found to be anemic. She asked her primary care doctor to refer her to me. When she came to see me, she had moderate anemia and she was feeling very weak and tired. Anemia can be due to multiple different reasons. Many times, patients tell me, I have been anemic all my life, in other words, do not worry about it. This is not a good idea. This can be very serious mistake. I n the past, I have done several articles on the differences between a pediatric patient, an adult patient, and an older more senior adult patient. There are some major differences in treatment and strategies for care, and it is important we be aware of these different points. In this particular article I am addressing the needs of the senior, or the geriatric patient. As I have written about in the past, senior patients are much more complex, and sometimes have several things going on that can affect their quality of life. As medicine improves and becomes more sophisticated, we are able to address these issues, and geriatric care and specialties are starting to become more common as the baby boomers age. Just like pediatric specialties and pediatric hospitals have come to be, this might very well be the case for the geriatric patient. Besides recognizing the need for specialized care for these patients, doctors, nurses, and family members need to coordinate and collaborate for the most effective way to treat and heal these patients. Simple things make a big difference. The vast majority of younger patients are literate, and some of our older patients came through a period of time in the United States when they quit school and went into the workforce to help Health care differences between younger and older patients G ood morning! Where has the time gone? We just celebrated the holidays and now its March. March has its ups and downs with beware the Ides of March, as said to Julius Caesar prior to his demise, then there is St. Patricks Day celebrated with green beer and the luck o the Irish. People have their ups and downs too and Nature Coast EMS field team members see them every day. The average age of our patients is about 72. Those of us at the back end of the baby boomers generation now qualify for AARP but we still focus on our immediate surroundings and may not, or choose not, to see changes in our aging parents. Mine are 73 and 76, live about seven hours away, and are not in the best of health. When was the last time you saw your parents? I have been thinking about my last visit and how some things have changed. I dont like to think of my parents getting older, because that means I am as well. Its a reality I dont really want to face. Have you noticed anything unusual about your elderly neighbor or your parents? Unusual; meaning unopened mail or newspapers piling up. Maybe their appearance has changed; they once cared about how they looked, but now theyre wearing dirty, wrinkled clothing. You were told that everything was fine, but it could be a sign something is going on.

the family through difficult periods in our country, including the Great Depression and World War II. We need to make sure the patient is able to read, because prescription bottles have very small print and can be confusing. Medicine taken the wrong way can be a problem, just to name one of many possible scenarios. Older patients have problems, including agerelated vision issues as well as cataracts that cloud vision, and glaucoma, which can affect the eyesight, so you want to make sure a patient is able to read published materials such as postoperative instructions. The use of illustrations, or pictures, and diagrams will help when the patient may not be so literate. Hearing loss is another problem that can interfere with care, as well as treatment of medical problems, and even understanding the need of post-operative care. At least one-fourth of our senior patients, if not more, have problems with hearing. We know from history that hearing loss can cause some social isolationism and depression, and even seem to interfere with cognitive impairment, and make the patient seem like he may have a touch of dementia. Make sure the hearing is OK, and if not, address that problem. Depression is a big issue with older patients. There may be situations where the patient is retired, inactive, has lost a spouse, and does not get out socially. Depression is not a lifethreatening issue per se, but it definitely affects how the patient responds, performs tasks of daily living and willingness to take care of him or herself. Depression can complicate medical and surgical issues. Further physical injuries after a surgery, especially if the patient is having some dizziness or balance problems, is very common with the older patient. Make sure their living environment is safe. Reducing the risk of fall and injury is very important. I frequently tell my balance patients that dizziness can be an annoyance, but a fall secondary to dizziness, which could cause a hip fracture, is a life-changing situation. There are fall prevention measures available in the literature and online that can be implemented. Medications can cause problems including sedation, confusion, agitation, a change in the patients personality, and sometimes, in extreme cases, auditory or visual hallucinations. This type of situation can occur from a hospitalization for an acute exacerbation of congestive heart failure, or pneumonia, or could occur from a hospitalization for a fall and hip fracture in which the patients medications may change. So when they are back home, things are not as they were before the event, and this can be very disconcerting for the patient, and attention to these matters is very important. Family members, health care givers including visiting nurses, are very helpful in this situation. Phone contact is also very helpful in managing the geriatric patients care. Sometimes patients are hesitant to contact the doctor or the nurse. They dont want to bother them, or they might think their question is too simple or foolish. A simple followup phone call, even from a family member who can break the ice so to speak, to make sure the patient is understanding their instructions, is helpful in a speedy and full recovery. Nowadays we have the availability of visiting nurses, but for patients who do not have that benefit, a phone call might work very well. Family members and friends who participate in the patients care are very helpful. The doctors and nurses do their best, but cannot be everywhere for everybody, so having a good support system is helpful. Teamwork between all of these parties will likely result in a more successful outcome for the older patient, who, as we know, has a greater chance of having medical, surgical, and general health problems.

GRILLO Continued from Page C1C2 T UESDAY, M ARCH 5, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE H EALTH& L IFE Reader asks about X-rays, leaky dental caps Q : How often should fullmouth X-rays be taken? What do they uncover that conventional X-rays dont? How often do dental caps leak? What causes this? What must be done to correct it? A: As a general rule a full series of X-rays is done every five years. A full set of X-rays typically includes the bite-wing X-rays taken at a patients hygiene appointment. Their primary purpose is to screen for decay in between the teeth in the area that is not visible by the clinical exam. In addition to the bite-wings a fullmouth series, or FMX, includes periapical X-rays. Peri-apical X-rays look primarily at the root portion of the tooth. They are used to screen for infections in the bone and conditions involving the root of the tooth. When these two types of X-rays are done in conjunction with each other the dentist has the opportunity to be thorough in his or her radiographic examination. The bite-wing portion of this set of X-rays can be expected to be retaken every year or two depending on the propensity of the individual patient to get decay. The peri-apical X-rays can also be expected to be taken whenever the patient returns to the dentist with a problem in a specific area. It is important to know that the visual examination your dentist does on a regular basis is just that visual. The use of X-rays periodically is important in order for the dentist to do a complete and thorough exam. That being said, it is important to not overuse X-rays throughout the doctor-patient relationship. It is my experience that patients want to minimize the use of Xrays. This is where the level of communication between the patient, doctor and hygienist becomes important. As you may recall from previous columns communication is of the utmost importance in any relationship. Caps can leak for any number of reasons. Perhaps the cap never fit properly. Temporary cement may have been used instead of permanent cement. Decay may have started at the interface between the cap and the tooth. There could even be a fracture in the cap that caused the leakage. Depending on the reason for the leak the repair can be as simple as a patch filling, or as involved as needing to remove the cap and place a new one. The only way to really make the call on what is best for a particular situation is through a thorough examination. This examination should include the clinical, or visual exam, as well as the radiographic exam. I hope this has answered your questions. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

NOTES Continued from Page C1H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, M ARCH 5, 2013 C3 New tampons contain pH-balancing ingredients Q : What can you tell me about RepHresh Brilliant pH tampons? A: RepHresh Brilliant pH tampons are different from traditional tampons because they contain two ingredients (Llactide and citric acid) that help to reduce the usual increase in vaginal pH that occurs during a womans menstrual period. In chemistry, the acidity or alkalinity of a substance is expressed in pH values with a pH value of 7 being neutral, a pH value less than 7 being acidic, and a pH value greater than 7 being basic or alkaline. For example, stomach acid has a pH of about 1 to 5 while lye (sodium hydroxide) may have a pH of 11 to 14. In the vagina, a normal pH of about 4.5 (acidic) is important for maintaining good vaginal health. In women, anything that reduces the acidity (increases the pH) of the vagina can increase the likelihood of vaginal infections, bacterial vaginosis or other problems. The acidity of the vagina may be reduced by hormonal changes shortly before and during menstrual periods or during pregnancy. Frequent douching, use of spermicides, and semen can also reduce vaginal acidity. In addition, aging and sexual activity can affect vaginal pH. In a normal vagina, the acidity of vaginal secretions is maintained by lactic acid, which is produced by bacteria called lactobacilli. When one or more types of vaginal bacteria overgrow and displace the number of protective lactobacilli, the pH of the vagina increases and problem infections or bacterial vaginosis can occur. During a womans period, the high pH of blood (7.4) causes vaginal pH to increase beyond the normal range, and tampons retain the fluids that cause pH to increase. When tampons were first invented in 1929, they were designed for leak protection, comfort and convenience. The RepHresh Brilliant pH tampons may also help to reduce the risk of vaginosis and perhaps other types of vaginitis. Tampon use basics: Use tampons only during menstruation. Change your tampon at least every four to eight hours. You can wear a tampon overnight for up to eight hours. Before going to bed, insert a new tampon and replace it immediately upon waking. Always remove your used tampon before inserting a new one. Be sure to remove the last tampon you use at the end of your period.

Adoption of lowdose computed tomography (LDCT) screening regimens (CAT scans as most of you know this test by), as outlined in the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), could potentially prevent more than 12,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States each year. This data was recently published online in Cancer. Researchers from the American Cancer Society estimated the annual number of lung cancer deaths that could be averted by LDCT screening, assuming implementation of the screening regimens adopted in the NLST. Estimates were based on the screening effect, the U.S. population size, screening eligibility, and the lung-cancer death rate among the population eligible for screening. Note that one important aspect, the cost of the screening, is not mentioned, and I will discuss that later. The researchers found that, in 2010, some 8.6 million Americans 5.2 million men and 3.4 million women were eligible for lung cancer screening. Full implementation of the screening regimen adopted in the NLST would potentially avert 12,250 lung cancer deaths each year, 8,990 in men and 3,260 in women. But the process to avert these 12,250 deaths from lung cancer would require that 8.6 million CT scans be performed on a regular basis. So, as a basic matter of financial restraints, many question if the cost of screening is worth the savings in lives. During the past few years, we have heard calls for the discontinuation of screening for breast cancer and prostate cancer due to the fact it costs a lot, and the question of the cost versus the benefit. Trust me, the cost of mammograms and the PSA blood test is much less that a CT scan, so the economic impact of a screening program for lung cancer will be difficult for our health care system to swallow. So, while we can estimate that approximately 12,000 lung cancer deaths could potentially be prevented per year through the full implementation of LDCT screening among eligible heavy smokers in the United States, based on our current knowledge of screening, further studies are needed to estimate the number of preventable lung cancer deaths and the cost-effectiveness of LDCT screening under different scenarios of risk, various screening frequencies, and other various screening factors. Some really tough questions will have to be asked and answered. Dr. C. Joseph Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist and a member of the Citrus County Unit of the American Cancer Society.

It is usually measured by hemoglobin and hematocrit in a routine blood test called a CBC (Complete Blood Count). Hemoglobin is the oxygen-carrying protein inside red blood cells. It gives red blood cells their red color. People with anemia do not have enough hemoglobin. Red blood cells provide oxygen to body tissues. Obviously, when patients have anemia, some parts of the body do not get enough oxygen. This causes weakness. It may also make the heart pump more blood, causing strain on the heart. You may have no symptoms if the anemia is mild. If the problem develops slowly, symptoms that may occur first include: Feeling grumpy. Feeling weak or tired more often than usual, or with exercise. Headaches. Problems concentrating or thinking. The body needs certain vitamins, minerals and nutrients to make enough red blood cells. Iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid are three of the most important ones. My patient was feeling weak and tired, and workup showed she had a lack of iron. The most common cause of iron deficiency is internal bleeding, usually from the stomach or colon. This can be due to a stomach ulcer, bleeding from diverticulosis or as bad as cancer in the colon or stomach. She was given intravenous iron, which improved her anemia and corrected her weakness. My patient had a colonoscopy four months ago, and it was incomplete due to tortuous colon. She had a PET/CT scan, and it showed possible colon cancer so she had another colonoscopy under anesthesia. This time, she could have a complete colonoscopy and it showed colon cancer. She already had surgery to remove the cancer. Very likely, she will get cured of her cancer. This case clearly teaches us not to ignore anemia. Remember, anemia can be due to various different reasons and it is very important to find out the correct cause of it and then treat it appropriately.

GANDHI Continued from Page C1 as personal hygiene, appropriate clothing, feeding or tending appropriately to any medical conditions, it is known as self-neglect. People can fall victim to self-neglect for a number of reasons, including dementia, illness, malnutrition, overmedication, substance abuse, depression and isolation. Self-neglect is a blanket term used to describe situations in which older people, in the judgment of others, are thought to be neglecting their needs and putting themselves at high risk of additional and serious deterioration. State Adult Protective Services statutes typically define neglect as occurring (1) when basic needs of an elderly or disabled adult are not being served by a person who has been assigned or has assumed responsibility for meeting those needs; and (2) when adults are unable to meet basic needs by themselves. Admitting they need help would mean they cant take care of themselves anymore, and accepting aid is not easy because it appears as a loss of independence. Denying anything is wrong, gives them a false sense of security that nothing bad will happen. They might not even realize their living conditions are a danger because its been that way for so long. Elder self-neglect makes people vulnerable to increasing health problems. It wont happen overnight, but Nature Coast EMS has a finger on the pulse of health and wellness in Citrus County to work on this problem.

News NOTE News NOTES Special to the ChronicleMidway Animal Hospital in Homosassa has joined with Precious Paws Rescue to support the rescues low-cost spay and neuter program. With a goal of reducing the number of homeless and unwanted cats and dogs in Citrus County community, Precious Paws Rescue launched the program in March 2012 with the help of Floral City Veterinary Hospital. To date, more than 250 surgical procedures have been completed. Now there will be two fullservice veterinary facilities providing the surgeries, and Precious Paws hopes to double that figure within the next year. The procedure for the pet owner is basically unchanged; they purchase a Precious Paws voucher and select either Midway Animal Hospital or Floral City Veterinary Hospital to have their pet sterilized. They make their appointment directly with the veterinary office and bring the pet and the voucher on the day of the surgery. Voucher fees for cats at both Midway and Floral City remain the same. To spay a female cat is $20 and to neuter a male cat is $10. Fees for dogs are based on weight and range from $25 to $75. Vouchers at both veterinary facilities cover the full cost of the surgery. Any extra services requested are the responsibility of the client and must be paid for at the time of the surgery. Vouchers may be purchased from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday at the Precious Paws Adoption Center in the Crystal River Mall. Gretas Touch Grooming and Doggie Day Care on South Florida Avenue in Floral City also sell PPR vouchers Monday through Friday during regular store hours. The program is funded by discounted surgical rates from both Midway Animal Hospital and Floral City Veterinary Hospital, voucher purchase by the pet owner with the remainder of the charges paid by Precious Paws Rescue with donated funds. PPR is an all-volunteer nonprofit charity organization. All donations are used to help animals in the community. For more information, call 352-726-4700 or visit preciouspaws florida.com.

T UESDAY, M ARCH 5, 2013 C5 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Virginia Gildersleeve was the only American woman at the 1945 San Francisco conference that created the United Nations. She said, The ability to think straight, some knowledge of the past, some vision of the future, some skill to do useful service, some urge to fit that service into the well-being of the community these are the most vital things education must try to produce. At the bridge table, it is important to think straight, to remember the past bids and plays, and to have some idea of what you plan to do. In this deal, how should South play in two spades? West leads the club ace, cashes the club king, and plays another club. South, with five top losers (two hearts, one diamond and two clubs), needs to find the spade queen to get home. Declarer must remember that neither opponent could open the bidding. And South has already seen seven points from West. However, before guessing how to play the trump suit, declarer should explore for more data. He should play on the red suits to learn who holds those honors. Then he will be sure to know who has the spade queen. At trick four, South leads a heart. Lets assume East takes that trick and shifts to a low diamond. Declarer wins with his king and plays another heart. East wins and cashes his diamond ace. Who has the spade queen? Since East has produced 11 points, it must be West. Remember the passes as well as the bids, and count those high-card points.

I thought everything would happen this year the great friends, the boyfriend, etc. On all of the TV shows, the juniors are having boys over, getting drunk, going on dates, having sex and so much more. I know my life isnt a TV show, but Im no different than last year. I want a boy friend. I want to party. I want to have my first kiss. I want to be a teenager. But I feel as distant from my friends as ever. And there is a boy I really like who is sweet, kind, smart and nonjudgmental, but Im not allowed to date. I know that being a teenager means disobeying my parents, and though that seems like the worst thing I could ever do, Im slipping. I dont know what to do. My grades and alcohol and this boy and drugs are all lurking in my mind. Im tired of being this perfect little angel. I know Im only 16, but what do I do? Troubled in High School Dear Troubled : Dont believe everything you see on TV. Those programs are an enhanced version of what the producers and writers think is exciting to watch. Seeing kids fall apart is interesting like watching a train wreck. Most high school juniors are not out partying, drinking, having sex and doing drugs. They are going to school, studying and working at parttime jobs. And the smart ones are also listening to their parents because they recognize that they have a future to consider. Talk to your parents about dating most kids are allowed to do so at 16. You also can discuss these issues with your school counselor, favorite teachers and other adults you respect and trust. We totally understand that you hoped your life would suddenly become amazing, but please dont be foolish enough to mess up the good things you have by letting your hormones run away with your common sense. Dear Annie : I am a 70-year-old widow who parted ways with my first love 50 years ago. Our only contact since then was five years ago, when I mailed some old pictures of him I had discovered. His thank-you note included an invitation to call them if I was ever in his area. I will be traveling to the city where he lives in April. While I am eager to suggest meeting for lunch, I am not sure this would be proper. I believe he is married, but my intentions are only to catch up with someone for whom I once cared greatly. Should I invite him with his wife? Should I simply shelve the entire idea? Perplexed in Phoenix Dear Phoenix : You are overthinking this. By all means, suggest meeting for lunch, and please include his wife. If you only want to reminisce and catch up, there should be no hint of ulterior motives. You might even make a new friend. Dear Annie : Conflicted Adoptee from Kansas wanted her birth mother to tell her other children that they have a sibling. I gave up a son 30 years ago. When he was 18, we got together to discuss why I gave him up. I had to tell my girls that they have a half-brother. Although that part went well, answering questions from my son was a lot harder. It opened up all kinds of wounds. I was worried about his opinion of me, but he was so mature. He said, I know you are not the same person you were back then. It is difficult to open your heart to someone, even if you feel they have the right to the information. Conflicted should let her birth mother know she isnt judging her, and that she respects her wishes about telling her children. Giving up a child was probably the hardest thing she has ever done.
