A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESSLast summer, soon after Detective Jon Seffern was transferred to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Major Crimes Unit, he got introduced to the illusionary and color-filled world of counterfeiting. And, Seffern said, things began to multiply rather quickly. There was just an influx of reports. I would say it took up about 30 percent of my work, Seffern said. Fake $20 bills are a favorite for counterfeiters. They use ones, fives, twenties and fifties, but the twenties are the most popular, Seffern said. Seffern and fellow unit detective Jose Carreras recently conducted a series of classes with other agency employees about multilayered and textured ways of telling fake or real currency. Seffern and Carreras told theChronicleseveral of the seemingly little things the government has done to the currency to help merchants and others spot fakes. Among them, said Seffern, is the color-shifting ink used in the amount numerals of the currency. A slight tilt under a light can show the color change.

Landfill fire damage at $500K CHRISVANORMER Staff writerA fire that broke out before 1 a.m. Sunday at the countys central landfill garbage cell caused about $500,000 in damage, according to a county fire marshal. Four engines, one squad and one tower were dispatched at 12:21 a.m. to what was at first thought to be a brush fire at the facility at 230 W. Gulf-to-Lake Highway, Lecanto. However, the fire was found to be in the garbage cell. Because of costly repairs to the landfills special, heavy-duty lining and other equipment, the damage was estimated at $500,000, said Kenneth R. Clamer, battalion chief/fire marshal, Citrus Sheriff Fire Rescue. The first fire units from South Kensington Avenue were on scene within six minutes. They quickly established a water supply from a fire hydrant near the landfill entrance. The fire was moving rapidly up the plastic cell liner. Fire crews were successful in preventing the fire from escaping the garbage cell. Grant sought for county Water line to serve residents with arsenic in wellsCHRISVANORMER Staff writerNearly 200 households with private wells within Citrus County have levels of arsenic in the drinking water that exceed the federal standard, according to a county document. At Tuesdays meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), the board will be asked to apply for grant funding to extend the current water utility system to serve residents and future businesses of the Northwest Quadrant of the county. That area comprises the part of the WHAT: Citrus County Boar d of County Commissioners meeting. WHEN: 1 p .m. Tuesday; public comments and questions will be taken at 1:30 p.m. WHERE: Room 100, Citrus County Courthouse, 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness. AGENDA: A vailable on the countys website, www.bocc. citrus.fl.us, at the Lecanto Government Building or in the commissioners suite on the second floor of the courthouse in Inverness. WATCH: The meeting will be televised live on cable TV on Channel 622 on Bright House and Channel 9 on Comcast. The meeting also can be viewed live online in a small digital format. See GRANT/ Page A9 City manager: Inverness in good financial shape NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS While cities across the country are going bankrupt, the city of Inverness is fiscally solvent and sound, as City Manager Frank DiGiovanni told members of city council earlier this week. A proposed bond debt retirement will put the city in an even better financial situation. As we look at what is the highest and best use of available resources, last year we started looking at debt service, he said. The debt service of the citys general fund is not large, but we think we can put available funds to better use than just applying them to meet the satisfaction of the bonds that are out there. Currently, the city has an outstanding Florida League of Cities bond issue balance of $4.6 million. In the next month or two, city council will vote on using money from existing reserves to pay off the bond MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus County Sheriffs Detective Jon Seffern, left, explains how to identify authentic money versus counterfeit bills Friday morning at the Citrus County Operations Center in Inverness. Along with Detective Jose Carreras, right, Seffern recently conducted classes for others in the sheriffs office on ways to combat counterfeiting in the county.

From staff and wire reports Around theSTATE OrlandoMan arrested after dog attacks swanA man has been charged with cruelty to animals after his dog attacked a swan.

Nola Collier and her husband were arguing at their home in Middleburg, about 30 miles south of Jacksonville, the Clay County Sheriffs Office said. Brook Collier left the home and got into his car. Nola Collier then ran out of the house and approached the drivers side door, deputies said. She was trying to stop him from leaving, public affairs officer Mary Justino said. Its unclear exactly how the 58-year-old woman was run over, but investigators believe she may have gotten caught between the front and back tires, Justino said. Nola Collier was transported to Orange Park Medical Center, where she died. Justino said the crash is being classified as an accident, but Brook Collier has been charged with leaving the scene of crash involving a death. He was arrested about a half mile away. Justino added that they will be doing a blood analysis for any signs that Brook Collier, 52, might have been impaired. He was being held Sunday at the Clay County Jail. The husband is the only eyewitness to the crash, Justino said.Punta GordaThree sustain injuries in plane crashThree people sustained minor injuries after a singleengine plane crash in Punta Gorda.

The plane nosedived and rolled over. The pilot and two passengers were taken to Charlotte Regional Hospital. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.From wire reports Page A3MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff writerAHernando woman has become part of a group whose name is a mouthful: Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority Citizens Advisory Committee. In short, its TBARTA-CAC, one of the groups that offer input to the agency created in 2007 by the Florida Legislature to put together a regional transportation master plan for seven counties, from Citrus to Sarasota. Theodora Teddi Rusnak has been appointed to represent the citizens of Citrus County, replacing Ron Lieberman, who was appointed first vice president/ treasurer of the Florida Home Builders Association. A former Chicago resident, Rusnak admits her interest in Floridas environment led up to her active role in policy advisement. I was looking forward to being much more in tune with a nature-oriented community, Rusnak said about her initial goal when she moved to Citrus County. I expected I would be joining the Audubon Society, the Native Plant Society and I was a member of Sierra Club these nature kinds of things and gardening 12 months out of the year. But then Rusnak got involved in civic matters, specifically changes to the countys comprehensive plan and land uses. If I was going to enjoy the nature aspect of the Nature Coast, Id better get pretty savvy with what was going on with the land-use stuff, Rusnak said. Transportation fell into that education. For several years, Rusnak has been the president of the Citrus County Council (CCC), a not-forprofit, nonpartisan consortium of homeowner associations, civic groups and environmental groups. In that role, Rusnak has followed county road issues, such as long-range transportation plans. The idea of how we are laying out communities is going to need to be changed, not only for the benefit of the environment, but also for the people living there, Rusnak said. When the vacancy opened on TBARTA-CAC, Rusnak applied. I was pleasantly surprise and encouraged by the idea that someone coming from a citizens and an environmentalist viewpoint would be chosen, Rusnak said. She said she hoped her appointment meant the CCC and the people it represents were being validated. I take that as one more step forward where government is listening to the people, Rusnak said. The CAC to Rusnak seems to be a point of reality-testing for the TBARTA board members. Having attended a recent board meeting, Rusnak said she was impressed with its reception of public input, because the public is the people who will live with the consequences of board decisions. That is my mission, Rusnak said. To bring that level of litmus testing to the table, not as a member of a special-interest group who would be having immediate benefit from this. Decisions will be made from a perspective of benefit to all than benefit to a few and detriment to all. This lofty mission does not lose sight of peoples self-interest in protecting their investments. There is going to be a lot of self-interest, Rusnak said. For example, homeowners who have seen their property value decline dramatically would like to see development that would lift the value of their homes. We have to try to balance the future of the county while trying to see what will be good for the county as a whole, Rusnak said. The thing about TBARTA that is so different from some of the other kinds of government activities in that this is a very longrange planning group. When you are talking about transportation planning, youre really talking 20, 40, 50 years out. Theres the difference. Balance works its way into planning so far into the future. Making our decisions, we cant afford to be scared, but we shouldnt also have this pollyanna expectation that something like the Suncoast Parkway 2 is going to start being built next week and that its suddenly going to create all this immense wealth in the county, Rusnak said. She accepts the inevitability of the project. But now, Rusnak said, is the time to consider all the issues for interconnectedness. Thats really what transportation routes are all about, Rusnak said.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicleonline. com. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleStrong on environmental issues, Theodora Rusnak known as Teddi looks forward to working with the Citizens Advisory Committee of TBARTA, the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority. Rusnak sees the CAC as a point of reality-testing for policymakers. For Rusnak, 2063 isnt far off its todays business We shouldnt ... have this pollyanna expectation that something like the Suncoast Parkway 2 is going to start being built next week and that its suddenly going to create all this immense wealth in the county. Teddi Rusnakon the need to be realistic when planning the future of Citrus County. CHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe number of board seats on a merged transportation planning group seemed to be a greater issue to representatives of the cities rather than the county. I would think that in a 6-6 or 5-5 situation, we would find out real quick as to whether or not this is going to work, said Crystal River City Council Member Paula Wheeler at Thursdays workshop of the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), which met to discuss a merger of the TPO with Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The merged group would provide project recommendations to the Florida Department of Transportation. FDOT has encouraged the TPO to merge with an existing MPO rather than form a new separate organization, since 2010 U.S. Census data determined the countys population increase raises it to MPO status having a greater role in regional planning. However, the first stumbling block is the number of board seats. Being the larger county, Hernando would have six seats to Citrus having five. The current TPO has seven seats: three for county commissioners and two for the city council members for each city. In the merger, the cities would each lose one seat. It is overwhelming, said Inverness City Council MemberJacqui Hepfer. We were just starting to come into our own as a TPO. We were starting to muddle through the bureaucratic maze. Now, were back to square one. Hepfer said when she looked at Hernando and Citrus, The two low men on the totem pole are Crystal River and Inverness. She was afraid the merger would destroy any progress the TPO had made. Commissioner John JJ Kenney, however, said that although Hernando appeared to have the upper hand through larger population, the TPO should move ahead because it has no option to form its own MPO. Not to be part of an MPO would mean the county would have no voice in regional transportation planning, he said. I think it just might work, Kenney said about the merger. The county with the larger population having more representatives was a point of law, said Lee Royal, FDOT District 7 community liaison administrator. If its the desire of this board that they want to move forward and have board-to-board discussion with Hernando and talk about the apportionment, wed be happy to facilitate that, Royal said. The second issue was which countys staff would administer the merged MPO. Wheeler was concerned Citrus Countys administration could be taken over by Hernando County staff. Kenney said he could see a composite staff representing both counties. The workshop ended with board members requesting more details through meetings with Hernando. At this point, the TPO was moving forward without a commitment to a merger. WHAT: Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization board meeting. WHEN: 5:15 p.m. Thursday. WHERE: Inverness Government Center, 212 W. Main St., Inverness. CALL: 813-282-8200. TPO balks at notion of one less seat

debt in the general fund, which will save the city $109,550 annually in interest and $341,913 annually toward the principle. That saves the city $2.4 million just in interest through 2035, DiGiovanni said. Councilman Ken Hinkle said the move would put the city in a good position when it comes to applying for grants. Weve put the city in the position where were financially great, he said. When we go for grants, theyll see we know what to do with our money. The $109,000 a year that we save in interest alone we can use for other things. On Friday, DiGiovanni said the money could very well go toward the cost of operating Whispering Pines Park, as well as other costs of maintaining services the city provides its citizens. This puts us in a stable, solid status, DiGiovanni said. We are in an enviable position. Councilwoman Marti Consuegra commented that the guiding principle of the council is to leave Inverness better than when we came, and that this is one way of doing this. Councilwoman Linda Bega added that paying off the bond debt is the right thing to do. The matter will come up for official council vote in April or May.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com. And, if you hold up the bill toward a light source, you a can see a watermark image of the president toward the side of the bill. Its like a hologram. A fake bill would not have that, Seffern said. Another way to spot a good bill, said Carreras, is to feel the label or collar of the image on the bill, it will have texture. Its usually not as smooth as the counterfeit ones. The detectives also demonstrated how the pens used by clerks to check for fakes will leave a mark on a counterfeit, usually because of the quality of paper used. However, according to Seffern, to stay ahead of changing technologies, the criminals have resorted to washing good $1 bills repeatedly to cleanse them of color. Then they would use those dollar bills to make 10and 20-dollar bills. The pen doesnt work on those counterfeits, and all the security features that are in them will still be there, Seffern added. Both Seffern and Carreras believe the counterfeit dollars circulating in the county are primarily from a local source. Seffern said there are several investigations under way, with some promising leads. Meanwhile, the agency is pushing to hand deputies the detection pens so whenever they come in contact with currency, they can check for authenticity. Seffern said the same would be done at the jail when inmates are being processed to track how many counterfeits are entering the facility. Seffern said agency officers also try to educate clerks whenever they receive calls about counterfeits. All counterfeit currency is turned in to the U.S. Secret Service.

Once the fire was contained to the cell, the firefighters elicited the help of landfill staff to operate their heavy equipment and cover the burning garbage with sand and soil while fire crews protected the operators and their equipment. Nature Coast EMS provided a standby medical unit to ensure the safety of the firefighters and Central Landfill operators. Other firefighters from Station No. 31 (Homosassa), Station No. 71 (Connell Heights), Station No. 21 (Lecanto) and Station No. 20 (Pine Ridge) also assisted with the blaze. Thanks to the cooperative efforts of the Central Landfill staff and the Citrus Sheriff Fire Rescue, the fire was contained to a small portion of the garbage cell. The scene at was cleared at 4:26 a.m. No injuries were reported.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicleonline.com.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HI LO PR 80 51 0.00 HI LO PR 81 52 0.00 HI LO PR 81 52 0.00 HI LO PR 79 52 0.00 HI LO PR NA NA NA HI LO PR 76 49 0.00 YESTERDAYS WEATHER Warm with increasing cloudsTHREE DAY OUTLOOK A.M. rain showers pass through Partly cloudy and coolerHigh: 81 Low: 65 High: 73 Low: 45 High: 70 Low: 36TODAY & TOMORROW MORNING TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY MORNING WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY MORNING Exclusive daily forecast by: TEMPERATURE* Sunday 81/52 Record 88/29 Normal 77/49 Mean temp. 67 Departure from mean +4 PRECIPITATION* Sunday 0.00 in.

According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, backache and more. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient roll-on applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-800-339-3301.

Fat cat adopted DALLAS An obese stray cat found wandering six months ago near Dallas has slimmed down to 34 pounds and been adopted by the veterinarian overseeing his care. Dr. Brittney Barton said Friday the orange tabby dubbed Skinny is doing well on a special diet to help lose weight and increase his metabolism. Barton said she became attached to the onetime 41pound cat she was treating at an animal orphanage and last month he became part of her family. Skinny joins Bartons husband, three children, a dog and another cat at her home. Barton said Skinny gets along great with the other animals, can jump up on a couch and runs to his food bag at feeding time. She said the house has long hallways that provide good exercise for Skinny.Hit-and-run fakedBERWICK, Pa. Police in central Pennsylvania allege a man fabricated a story about being the victim of a hit-andrun last month because he wanted a ride home. The (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise reported the 18year-old Beach Haven resident was walking along Route 11 in Salem Township at about 1 a.m. Feb. 8 when he called for help. Police said he told officers and Berwick Ambulance personnel he had been struck in the left leg by a pickup truck, but they could find no evidence of an injury. Authorities said he eventually acknowledged having made up the story so he could get a ride. They said the suspect will now face charges of causing a false alarm, filing a false report and disorderly conduct.Ban on booing RIVERHEAD, N.Y. Cheers? Yes. Jeers? Not so much. Officials in the New York town of Riverhead, in eastern Long Island, have adopted a code of public behavior for town hall meetings that bans booing. Newsday reported the Riverhead Town Board voted 4-1 to approve the proposal earlier this week. Councilman James Wooten was the lone dissenter. The town council deleted a measure that also would have banned applause. There are no penalties for violators. Supervisor Sean Walter said the town copied guidelines in other towns. He said the rules are designed to let meetings run more smoothly.Tree tradePORTLAND, Ore. Was it remorse or a tiny tree fairy? Portland parks officials say a Douglas fir sapling resembling one stolen from a tiny Portland park has appeared at the 2-foot-diameter oasis. Last weeks theft captured the citys attention. On Wednesday, park staffers planted a replacement sapling to fill the hole left in the center of the park. Parks officials said a passing driver posted a comment online Friday, noting that a young tree, roots and all, was lying on its side beside the replacement tree. The unidentified driver speculated that perhaps the arborious criminal was feeling remorse. Parks Director Mike Abbate said if the latest tree is healthy, it will be planted in another city park. Even if the thief returned the tree, Sgt. Pete Simpson said police will continue their investigation. In his words, Remorse does not mean case closed. The tiny park lies in a median strip in downtown Portland near the Willamette River. It was established by newspaper columnist Dick Fagan in the 1940s and became an official city park in 1976.Play ball!MUSKEGON, Mich. A community college baseball team in West Michigan took to the field with snow shovels in attempt to clear the way for their home opener. Under the direction of head coach Cap Pohlman, the 30member Muskegon Community College team spent nearly two hours shoveling the infield Thursday. They took turns piling snow into the bed of a trailer pulled by Pohlman using a lawn tractor. Team member Stephan Chandonnet told The Muskegon Chronicle, This is what we get for playing baseball in Michigan. The game is scheduled for Tuesday against Owens Community College, but the coach said it will take a miracle for the game to go forward because of all the snow. The team was expected back out on the field Friday and possibly during the weekend.A8MONDAY, MARCH11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000DXKT YOU COULD RECEIVE A REWARD UP TO $ 1,000 TEXT CITRUS + Your Tip to 274637 (CRIMES) CLICK www.CrimeStoppersCitrus.com CALL 1-888-ANY -TIPS (1-888-269-8477) Funded by the Office of the Attorney General, Crime Stoppers Trust Fund of Citrus County, Inc. 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS The Savings Are Yours Because The Factory Is Ours!

Associated PressWASHINGTON Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Sunday likened political reporters to crack addicts and heroin addicts during a tour of morning talk shows that drew repeated questions about the still-distant 2016 presidential election. Bush, capping a media-heavy week that sparked chatter about a presidential campaign for a third member of his family, tried to keep the conversation focused on his book Immigration Wars. But as Bush wrapped up a conversation with NBCs David Gregory, he likened journalists and their questions about the 2016 campaign to drug addicts. Whos the hottest Florida politician right now? Is it you or Marco Rubio? Gregory asked, referring to Rubio, a senator who is also a potential GOP contender. Who are we more likely to see in the White House? Man, you guys are crack addicts. You really are obsessed with all this politics, Bush replied. The Meet the Press host interrupted, saying hed been called a lot of things, but never a crack addict. OK, heroin addict. Is that better? shot back Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush and brother of former President George W. Bush. Weve got big challenges, and Marco Rubio, to his credit, is working on those. And he deserves a lot of credit for it, and Im very proud of him, Jeb Bush said of his potential rival. After Bush left the Florida governors office in 2007, some urged him to jump into the 2012 race against President Barack Obama. But his brothers low approval ratings could have dragged him down, and there seemed little interest in a national campaign. But with Republicans looking for a new message and messenger, Jeb Bush is signaling hes open to the possibility. Im not saying yes. Im just not saying no, Bush told NBC News last week. Speaking Sunday on CNNs State of the Union, Bush said, When you asked me before 2012 Was I going to run in 2012? and I said no, I went through the process and decided it wasnt appropriate. Now, Ive decided to defer any consideration of it until the proper time to make those kind of considerations, which is out, you know, more than a year from now, for sure, he said. county that is north of Crystal River and portions west of County Road 495 (North Citrus Avenue) to the county line.

Page A10MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 Adopt pets when ableWhen you lose a dog or cat to death and one who lived with you for many years, your grief says none will ever replace it. There will never be an exact replica, but filling that empty spot in your heart can be accomplished by adopting another animal. A dog requires walking several times a day. But you will benefit greatly from the exercise, lose weight, lower your blood pressure, increase your circulation, etc. No matter how bad your day is, your pet will show, I am overjoyed to see you. You never fail me or disappoint me. You are always a success in my eyes. All I want is your love. Go to the Citrus County animal shelter (352-746-8400), or any number of private shelters. See the phone book for their phone number or address. Also, look in the neighborhood section of the Chronicle. There are individual pictures of adorable animals in private shelters that will melt your heart.Margo Blum HomosassaAdvantage enoughQuestions: Whats wrong with removing federal tax loopholes that were emplaced solely for the affluent, and whats right about the federal government subsidizing oil companies and corporate jets? Observation: Compare like mutual funds that take a $2,500 buy-in to those who take a buy-in of $1 million-or-more, and you will see that simply being wealthy is advantage enough, and requires no additional financial support from wage-earning families.James McIntosh LecantoRelationships save jobsRe: Letter to the Editor; Revenue shortfallIn the ChroniclesFeb. 25 article, Exploring options, these words appear: Revenue shortfall, storm water management and utility fees, franchise fees, additional sales tax, vehicle fleet management, new medical corridor development, roadway bypass plan, water and wastewater authority, impact fee transfers, land development codes, etc. Missing in this agenda is any word about cost-cutting. If a business or family loses half its income, contingent planning should start with reconsideration of all purchases, expenses, hiring and bare essentials. Also missing is how we save Duke as a unique treasure in the survival of Citrus County. Keep in mind that to lure Duke elsewhere, other states would donate land, issue bonds to finance half a new plant and forego any tax revenue for years. What are 600 jobs worth, plus 1,000 more for years of construction? It may take some time to repair the perception of a stick it to em attitude toward industry and business. Duke may be waiting for a kind and friendly invitation to stay put, with an assurance of cooperation.John P. Brebner Crystal River Its not just a womens issue. Granted, thats how many of us are framing last months decision by Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo! Inc., to end telecommuting and require all employees to report to the office. It ignited a firestorm of controversy over whether Mayer, a working mother herself, has backstabbed the sisterhood. Columnist Kathleen Parker called it the latest iteration of the mommy war. But theres another reason we should be debating Mayers policy: some people simply work better alone. My colleagues are rolling their eyes now, so let me rush to provide full disclosure. Ive worked mainly from home for more than 20 years, going into the office just enough that they dont give my desk away. I dont do it because its more convenient. I dont do it because I hate the commute. I do it because Im an introvert. The word is not a synonym for shy, though as a boy, I was that, too. But where shyness is an outsized fear of other peoples disapproval or of social embarrassment, to be an introvert is to be inward turning, more at home in small, intimate groups than large, boisterous ones. It is to prefer the quiet to the loud, reflection to exhortation, solitude to socializing. For years, I struggled with that, wondered why I prefer the rainy afternoon spent watching old movies or reading a book to the sunny afternoon at a backyard barbecue watching people do the electric slide. Then, last year, I chanced upon a book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Cant Stop Talking by Susan Cain. It was the first time anyone had ever explained me to me. Turns out Im not the only one. Turns out introversion is perfectly normal. Except that our culture is biased toward extroverts. Its a bias reflected both in Mayers decision and in the attagirls she has received from the likes of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He argues, as she did, that collaboration synergy is the buzzword produces the best results. This is conventional wisdom in American business. Indeed, Cain notes that per person square footage in offices has shrunk by over half since the s in the belief that open space floor plans that force people together facilitate teamwork and, thus, productivity. For some of us, it probably does. But not for all. The savvy CEO will understand this, will realize that the alone space is where introverts find the stuff that powers their best work and will wherever practical accommodate that. And, as Cain points out, quiet people, left to their own devices, have produced rather significant moments in culture, science and politics. Her list of their contributions includes: the theory of relativity; Schindlers List, Charlie Brown, Google and the Montgomery bus boycott. All that said, I have a sinking fear that after this column, Ill never be invited to another backyard barbecue again. Good friends, please invite me; Ill even bring the banana pudding. But at the same time, please forgive me if I leave early. As Cain notes, it is not that the introvert doesnt enjoy the company of others. Rather, its that after a certain point, it leaves him feeling physically drained. Thats who I am less Bill Clinton than Al Gore and Ive given myself permission to stop fighting it. Marissa Mayer may or may not be a traitor to modern mommyhood. But she has bought into the one-size-fits-all mentality that says productivity and creativity are found only when colleagues meet at the water cooler. She is wrong. I am proof. This week, Ill go into the office to make sure my desk is still there. Ill kibitz with my friends. But when its time to get down to work Ill slip on the noise-canceling headphones, block out the world and seek what people like me always, instinctively seek: a quiet and alone inner space where it is possible to simply, finally...

Its longand short-term planning is fashioned around that vision, and the city is moving closer to it with each new project. An important piece of Invernesss capital improvement plan is about to take shape: North Apopka Boulevard from Dampier Street to beyond the Withlacoochee State Trail will be transformed into whats being called Bicycle Boulevard, with completion timed for the July 3 Patriotic Evening event that takes place in Liberty and Wallace Brooks parks on the lake. Bicycle Boulevard, part of the citys Bicycle Master Plan, will connect downtown Inverness with the Withlacoochee State Trail. It also will incorporate traffic-calming features and landscaping, plus improve drainage as well as car parking at Liberty Park. This connector will make pedestrian and bike travel between the lake and downtown safer and more convenient. This linkage with downtown is good for Trail users and good for the city. Plenty of evidence from locations in Florida and elsewhere shows that bicycle facilities encourage tourism and boost the local economy. Trail-users enjoy convenient access to stores, restaurants, attractions and activities in town and, as a local bike shop owner once said, cyclists like to spend money. An added plus is that that trails are the No. 1 mostdesired community amenity sought by prospective homebuyers nationwide. Local contractors Daly & Zilch will be working under tight deadlines for this project, which will be cranking up just as the annual Clean Air Bike Ride brings hundreds of visitors to the Trail in late March. It will be important for Bicycle Boulevard to incorporate wide bike and pedestrian lanes for safe, easy foot and bike travel. Good signage will help draw people between the Trail and downtown, and convenient bike-parking spots in town will accommodate those who want to stop for refreshment or other purchases. As City Manager Frank DiGiovanni notes, reinvigorating the city is an evolution: Youre never finished, he said. But this is another solid step toward fulfilling the citys vision.

Controlling the political classShould we discuss gun control in these United States, or should we discuss the control of insane people by the people of these United States. As difficult as it is for us to imagine, let us pretend that one day, the following may come to pass: There will be many government taxing authorities in this country and they will compete with each other so as to collect more taxes and further waste, fraud and abuse. Some unscrupulous politicians may begin racing to accumulate as much money as they can before the economy collapses. An example of this might be the unnecessary building of sidewalks alongside miles of interstate highways across these United States. Another example might be the forcing the millions of homeowners in one or more of these United States to replace or upgrade their septic systems (at the homeowners expense) through collusion by politicians and lobbyists under the guise of environmental protection. (This could be an example of the corrupt tax.) Another type of tax could be instituted as impact fees, for adding a porch onto ones home, improving a driveway, etc. (This could be called a stealth tax.) Through possible neglect by our politicians, the United States of America becomes a Third World country. The politicians become corrupt, selfserving and apparently incompetent. These same politicians may also decide that they are too important to have to live by many of the laws they made for the people and exempt themselves from their own laws. They may even pass laws to give themselves and their supporters multiple lifetime pensions that cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Some unscrupulous politicians may supply weapons and/or support to certain foreign and domestic groups so as to support a hidden agenda. Things like this have happened in the history of the world and as farfetched as it may seem; could happen in America today. Perhaps the discussion of gun control should be changed to a discussion of insanity control. I personally feel embarrassed when some of my European friends remind me of the tragedy of the many hundreds of people killed by individuals with guns in these United States. Perhaps because of their indoctrination, they neglect an inconvenient truth, and it is that multiple millions of men, women and children have been slaughtered by various governments in what they (Europeans) consider modern history. Perhaps we, as Americans, should remember that for the past 150 years, insane governments around the world (not individual people in these United States) have been responsible for the slaughter (starvation, bombings, firing squads, concentration camps, torture, etc.) of multiple millions of innocents (not counting abortions). Many veterans might be inclined to agree with some of the above.Matt Canning InvernessConsider the total pictureGov. Scott has done it again. When he first took office, he tried to solve our governing problems as he saw them. For the most part he was right, but many people who believed government was the answer to everything got upset. However, his austerity measures appear to have served the state well, as we are slowly recovering. Even with all the obstacles our president places against us, Florida seems to be seeing some slight ray of sunshine. He was criticized by many for his proper decision to reject that train. Some say he passed up an opportunity for some federal funds that went to other areas. Those areas will suffer the unexpected fallout from their folly. All of us may have some additional share in that added cost. Now he has decided to let the federal government come in and pay for an ill-advised Medicaid program. The fact is, as he described it, that regardless of his acceptance or rejection it was going to happen. Florida voters joined much of the rest of the nation in approval of President Obamas destructive policies during last Novembers election. As a result, Gov. Scott felt he must make the best of a bad situation. At least, for three years, Floridas budget will not have to cover this cost. Instead our federal government, which is broke, will pay with some of Obamas stash. The appearance is that Gov. Scott has caved. The reality is that he is accepting something that is going to happen anyway. Also, he would like to serve a second term in an effort to prove he knows how to make Florida shine again. We all must take a serious look at the total picture to see what is happening in our state. If you have some concern as we all should, look at the total picture before you decide yes or no on our governor.Robert E. Hagaman HomosassaOngoing struggle for equalityMrs. Gregory has her favorite Amendments, she writes. But she has left out one of the most important amendment for women. Supporters of the Equal Rights Amendment between 1972 and 1982 lobbied, marched, rallied, petitioned, etc. Yes, it was difficult. Long ago, in 1776 Abigail Adams wrote to her husband, John, In a new code of laws, remember the ladies and do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. John Adams did not listen to his wife. And so, women could not vote, own property, keep their own wages or even have custody of their children. There has been a struggle ever since. The Equal Rights Amendment passed the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. On March 22, 1972, the proposed 27th Amendment was sent to the states for ratification.

Harvard University administrators secretly searched the emails of 16 deans last fall, looking for a leak to reporters about a case of cheating, two newspapers reported. The email accounts belonged to deans on the Administrative Board, a committee addressing the cheating, The Boston Globe and The New York Times reported, citing school officials. The deans were not warned about the email access and only one was told of the search afterward. Harvard University said last month that it issued academic sanctions against about 60 students who were forced to withdraw from school for a period of time in a cheating scandal that involved the final exam in a class on Congress. The school implicated as many as 125 students in the scandal.Congressman King survives boutWANTAGH, N.Y. U.S. Rep.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressCardinal Marc Ouellet, top center, prays next to Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco on March 6 during a vespers celebration in St. Peters Basilica at the Vatican. Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan A series of security problems and fractured relations with Afghan leaders plagued Defense Secretary Chuck Hagels first trip here as Pentagon chief, including the Afghan presidents accusations that the U.S. and the Taliban are working in concert to show that violence in the country will worsen if most coalition troops leave. The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Joseph Dunford, quickly rejected the charges President Hamid Karzai made Sunday as categorically false. But the accusations were just the latest in a series of disputes that have frayed relations between the two nations as the U.S. works to wind down the war and turn the countrys security over to the Afghans. Speaking to reporters shortly after Karzai made the comments, Dunford said the Afghan leader has never expressed such views to him but said it was understandable tensions would arise as the coalition balances the need to complete its mission with the Afghans move to exercise more sovereignty. Dunfords comments came, however, soon after U.S. officials cancelled a news conference with Hagel and Karzai because of a security threat just a day after a suicide bomber on a bicycle struck outside the Afghan Defense Ministry, killing nine civilians and wounding 14 others. Hagel heard the explosion from the location where he was meeting with Afghan officials but was never in danger. Hagel met with Karzai Sunday night and said that he discussed all the key issues with the president. He also rejected any suggestions that the U.S. is in collusion with the Taliban. Speaking to reporters traveling with him, Hagel declined to detail his conversation with Karzai but said, I think he understands where we are and where weve been, and hopefully where were going together. Hagel said hes known Karzai since shortly after the invasion in late 2001. The U.S. and Afghan leaders are in the midst of negotiations over the longterm presence of American forces in Afghanistan beyond the end of 2014, when all combat troops are scheduled to leave. U.S. officials would not provide details on the security concerns that led to cancelling the news conference.

Hagel rebuffed in first trip to Afghanistan Karzai accuses United States of working with Taliban to keep forces in country Associated PressVATICAN CITY The Vatican insists that the cardinals participating in the upcoming conclave will vote their conscience, each influenced only by silent prayers and reflection. Everybody knows, however, that power plays, vested interests and Machiavellian maneuvering are all part of the game, and that the horse-trading is already under way. Can the fractious Italians rally behind a single candidate? Can the Americans live up to their surprise billing as a power broker? Will all 115 cardinals from around the world be able to reach a meeting of minds on whether the church needs a people-friendly pope or a hard-edged manager able to tame Vatican bureaucrats? This time there are no star cardinals and no big favorites, making the election wide open and allowing the possibility of a compromise candidate should there be deadlock. While deliberations have been secret, there appear to be two big camps forming that have been at loggerheads in the run-up to the conclave. One, dominated by the powerful Vatican bureaucracy called the Curia, is believed to be seeking a pope who will let it continue calling the shots as usual. The speculation is that the Curia is pushing the candidacy of Brazilian Odilo Scherer, who has close ties to the Curia and would be expected to name an Italian insider as Secretary of State the Vatican No. 2 who runs dayto-day affairs at the Holy See. Another camp, apparently spearheaded by American cardinals, is said to be pushing for a reform-minded pope with the strength to shake up the Curia. These cardinals reportedly want archbishop Angelo Scola as pope. The other key question to resolve is whether the pope should be a pastoral one somebody with the charisma and communication skills to attract new members to a dwindling flock or a managerial one capable coralling sex-abuse scandals and bureaucratic disarray. There is one more camp, which presumably commands enough votes to influence the election. It is the Benedict faction, the 67 voting cardinals who owe their red hat and presence in the conclave to the most recent pope. They make up more than half of the voters. Their loyalty to Benedict could damage the ambitions of any cardinal thought to have damaged his papacy and been part of the divisions that Benedict lamented in his final addresses. Who might that be? Their names are presumably listed in a secret report prepared for Benedict about the Vatileaks scandal. Only a few people have seen that report. None of the cardinals who will be voting are among them. As conclave convenes, power plays under way While deliberations have been secret, there appear to be two big camps forming. One, dominated by the powerful Vatican bureaucracy called the Curia, is believed to be seeking a pope who will let it continue calling the shots. Another is said to be pushing for a reform-minded pope with the strength to shake up the Curia. Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration has embarked on an aggressive trade agenda that could lower barriers and increase U.S. exports to Asia and Europe. To make that a reality, though, it may first have to negotiate future trade policy a little closer to home with Congress. The administration hopes to complete talks by October on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which would reduce duties on a wide range of goods and services in the worlds most vibrant trading area. Eleven countries, including Australia, Peru, Malaysia, Vietnam, Mexico and Canada, are participating, and Japan has expressed interest in joining. In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama announced plans for a second deal, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, which would link the United States and the European Union, the worlds two largest economies. Departing U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk added to the agenda in January when he notified Congress of plans to start negotiations for a new trade agreement on international trade in services. The talks will include a group of 20 trading partners representing nearly two-thirds of global trade in services. Obama has set a goal of doubling exports by the end of next year, after drawing criticism from free-trade advocates during his first term for moving too slowly on trade issues. First, Obama must nominate a successor to Kirk. Then, he has to work with lawmakers to restore a procedure called trade promotion authority that is regarded as key to getting trade treaties finalized and approved by Congress.

Bresnahan came off a fourth-place finish in the season-opening Florida United Promoters Late Model Series Icebreaker 100 on March 2 the highest finish among county drivers to cruise to a 50-lap feature triumph on Saturday. Despite the success, he says his No. 69 machine is still far from its potential. Weve still got a long time to go, Bresnahan said. The lap times are terrible. I built this car brand new back in 2004 and just got it back a few weeks ago. I cant complain about winning, but if we wouldve started further back I dont think wed have done it. Points leader Steve Dorer, of Lakeland, made his way up from toward the back of the field to place second for the second time in as many features this season, while Inverness Herb Neumann Jr. a feature winner in Open Wheeled Modifieds on Feb. 16 and a heat winner Saturday surged from the middle of the pack for his second thirdplace showing of the season. Lake Panasoffkees Todd Brown won the other Late Model heat of the night. In the Modified Mini Stock division, Bushnells Chris Allen won his first feature and second heat of the season to move within three points of point leader Michael Lawhorn, of Clermont. The car was good, Allen said. It drives real well, but if it had new tires itd be a heck of a lot better. Allen went low on second-place finisher Johnny Siner, of Homosassa, on lap 14 and stayed in front the remaining six laps. Siner, who was celebrating a birthday, moved ahead of fellow Homosassa driver Wayne Heater for the lead on lap 2, and Heater fell to the third spot on lap 7 en route to a third-place finish in the 10-car event. Brooksvilles James Ellis, a second-place finisher on Feb. 23, won the divisions other heat race. Dunnellon Modified Minis fixture Clint Foley, who was a feature winner two weeks ago and stood one point behind Allen to begin the night, did not race. Flanagan won his third feature in four races to build on his commanding point lead after culminating his charge to the front from the fifth position by the end of lap 4. He was trailed by Inverness John Chance (second place), who had his third top 3 finish of the season, and Floral Citys Dora Thorne, who remains in second place in the point standings. I cant complain about winning, but if we wouldve started further back I dont think wed have done it.Mike BresnahanSuper Late Model feature winner Saturday at Citrus County Speedway. See SPEEDWAY/ Page B4 Associated PressMatt Kenseth (20) leads Kasey Kahne Sunday during the final laps of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Las Vegas. Kenseth won the race. Kenseth celebrates birthday with Vegas victory Associated PressLAS VEGAS Matt Kenseth won on his 41st birthday for his new Joe Gibbs Racing team, barely holding off Kasey Kahne for his third victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday. Kenseth earned his 25th career victory in just his third start in the JGR Toyota after leaving Roush Fenway Racing in the offseason. He took the lead away from Kahne out of a late restart and fended off Kahnes Chevrolet over the final laps, adding another trophy to his Las Vegas victories in 2003 and 2004. I was real nervous all day, Kenseth said. (Kahne) had the best car. I told (crew chief) Jason (Ratcliff) with about 12 to go that I was sorry we were going to lose. We were just too tight. We didnt have the fastest car there, but we had it where we needed it to be. Pole sitter Brad Keselowski finished third, with hometown driver Kyle Busch in fourth and Carl Edwards fifth. Jimmie Johnson, the overall points leader, was sixth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. seventh. Defending Vegas champion Tony Stewart finished 11th, while Denny Hamlin was 15th. Kenseth is just the third NASCAR driver to win on his birthday, joining Cale Yarborough who did it twice and Busch. His win was the 50th for Toyota in Sprint Cup Series competition. Kenseth has won at least one race in 11 of his 14 full seasons in the Sprint Cup series, but the first 13 were all in Fords with Roush Fenway, the team Pro teams seek help from state Associated PressTALLAHASSEE For the past two decades, Florida taxpayers have paid millions to turn the state into a sports mecca. The money has paid for repairs, renovations and construction of stadiums and arenas that are home to professional football, hockey, baseball and basketball teams. The state also has shelled out money to spruce up ballparks used by Major League Baseball teams for spring training. The total so far: close to $300 million since 1994. The list of those getting help and the amount spent by the state could get even larger this year if state legislators and Gov. Rick Scott agree. Bills moving in this years session could help the Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars renovate their stadiums. One bill would help build a soccer stadium, probably in Orlando, and other legislation would pay for improvements to Daytona International Speedway. I think its exciting that the economy is starting to swing back such that we are seeing the opportunities to have new facilities constructed or renovated, said Sen. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs and sponsor of the bill to bring Major League Soccer back to the state. The Tampa Bay Mutiny and Miami Fusion, which played in Fort Lauderdale, both folded after the 2001 season. But already, pressure is building against some of the bills, especially a push for the state to pay $3 million a year for the next 30 years for improvements to Sun Life Stadium, home to the Dolphins and the University of Miami Hurricanes. That measure, which also calls for the use of local hotel bed taxes for the project, has the full backing of the Dolphins and business groups from MiamiDade County. Proponents say a renovated stadium will help Florida secure the Super Bowl in 2016, when the NFL will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the game. And a common argument in favor of all the sports incentives is that they will create spur job creation and help existing hotels and restaurants. But critics, including legislators from Miami-Dade County, who say Dolphins owner Stephen Ross should use his own Tiger Woods cruises to 76th career PGA Tour championship Associated PressDORAL Tiger Woods is hitting his stride on a march to the Masters. Woods had full control of his game Sunday and never let anyone get closer than three shots until he had locked up his 17th World Golf Championship title. With a conservative bogey that didnt matter on the final hole, he closed with a 1-under 71 to win the Cadillac Championship. For the first time in five years, Woods has two wins before the Masters. It was one year ago at Doral that Woods withdrew after 11 holes in the final round because of tightness in his left Achilles tendon, creating uncertainty about his health and whether he could ever get his game back. False alarm. Woods has won five times in the past year, the most of anyone in the world, and he can return to No. 1 with a win at Bay Hill in two weeks. He won by two shots over Steve Stricker, who might want to claim a share of this trophy. Stricker spent 45 minutes on the putting green with Woods on the eve of the tournament, helping him with his posture over putts. Woods made 27 birdies this week, one short of his personal best on the PGA Tour. Thank you to Steve for the putting lesson, Woods said at the trophy presentation. It was one of those weeks where I felt pretty good about how I was playing, made a few putts and got it rolling. Stricker, playing a part-time schedule, picked up his second runner-up finish in just three starts. He closed with a 68, and had no regrets about offering Woods some help. At times you kick yourself, Stricker said with a laugh. Hes a good friend. We talk a lot about putting. Its good to see him playing well. The Masters is a month away, and Woods is sure to be the favorite. Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 player in the world, showed signs of recovering from his rough start to the season. He had a 65 and tied for eighth. Woods won in January at Torrey Pines by four shots. He won for the fourth time at Doral, making this the seventh golf course where he has won at least four times. Graeme McDowell, who started the final round four shots behind, made a birdie on the opening hole, but never got any closer. McDowell had third place to himself until he went for the green on the 18th hole and found the water. He made double bogey, shot 72 and fell into a fourway tie for third that cost him $172,500. Phil Mickelson (71), Sergio Garcia (69) and Adam Scott (64) also tied for third. Woods improved to 40-2 on the PGA Tour when he had the outright lead going into the final round, the last two wins with McDowell at his side. Woods last won while ahead at Bay Hill a year ago. The way Tiger was playing, I was always in chase mode, McDowell said. He was always going to be a tough guy to catch. Fair play to him. He played fantastic golf the last couple of days. Woods finished minus 19 at 269 and earned $1.5 million in winning this World Golf Championship for the seventh time. McIlroys week ended on a happy note. Not only did he finish the tournament, he might have turned the corner with a bogey-free 65. McIlroy opened with a 7iron into 18 feet for eagle, which he called one of the best shots he hit. He shot a 32 on the back nine for a round that surprised him considering how far away he felt when he arrived at Doral. Just goes to show, its not as far away as you think, McIlroy said. Thats been one of my problems. I always think when Im playing bad that its further away than it is. Thats just where I have to stay patient ... and know that if I put in the hard work, that the results will bear fruit. Whether thats sooner or later, it doesnt really matter. McIlroy said he wont add a tournament the next two weeks, returning at the Houston Open before going to the Masters. He is signed up for the member-guest a week from Monday at The Medalist Club, presumably as the guest of former NBA great Michael Jordan. Hes asked me, so depending on what my schedule is and where I have to be ... well see, he said. Scott had the low round of the tournament with eight birdies in his round of 64. Thats what McDowell, Mickelson and Stricker would have needed to have any chance of catching Woods. As he did early in third round, McDowell gave it his best shot, only to have Woods answer on every occasion. McDowell two-putted for birdie on the par-5 opening hole as Woods blasted a shot from a buried lie at the back of the Associated PressTiger Woods holds the Gene Sarazen Cup on Sunday for winning the Cadillac Championship in Doral.

Star guard Kyrie Irving was knocked out by an apparent shoulder injury late in the third quarter as Cleveland lost for the fourth time in five games. Irving was hurt when he collided with Toronto rookie Jonas Valanciunas on a baseline drive with 2:04 left in the third. He shot the resulting free throws one-handed. Irving made the first but missed the second before walking off and heading to the locker room. He finished with 12 points. Irving missed 11 games between Nov. 21 and Dec. 8 with a broken finger. He also sat out three games between Feb. 26 and March 1 with a sore right knee.Mavericks 100, Timberwolves 77MINNEAPOLIS Vince Carter had 22 points and nine rebounds and Dirk Nowitzki scored 16 to help the Dallas Mavericks to a 100-77 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

They had beaten 22 straight conference opponents, including last seasons tournament title run, since a Feb. 11, 2012, loss to St. Bonaventure. The fourth-seeded Hawks (22-8), who lost 73-66 at Dayton on March 3, will face thirdseeded Fordham in Saturday nights final in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Shenneika Smith scored 19 points to lead St. Johns (1812) which hopes its done enough to earn an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.No. 24 Syracuse 61, Villanova 56HARTFORD, Conn. Kayla Alexander matched her career high with 34 points and No. 24 Syracuse withstood a rally to beat Villanova 61-56 in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament. The Orange (24-6) led by as many as 15 in the second half, before Villanova came storming back, cutting the lead to two with 2 minutes left. The Wildcats had won five of the last six meetings between the two schools. But they had to play this one without leading scorer Laura Sweeney, who suffered a concussion in the Wildcats second-round win over Georgetown. Rachel Roberts and Taylor Holeman each had 14 points for Villanova (21-10). Alexander pulled down 15 rebounds for the Orange, who will take on Connecticut in the semifinals tonight.

Cody Zeller made a goahead layup with 13 seconds left and altered Trey Burkes shot at the other end, lifting No. 2 Indiana to a 72-71 victory over No. 7 Michigan on Sunday that gave the Hoosiers their first outright Big Ten title in two decades. The Hoosiers (26-5, 14-4) trailed by five points in the last minute but took advantage when the Wolverines (25-6, 12-6) were unable to seal it at the foul line. A couple of Michigans rivals surely wish the Wolverines had won. Ohio State, which beat Illinois on Sunday, needed an Indiana loss to earn a share of the conference championship. Michigan State was in the same position before hosting Northwestern later in the day.No. 10 MSU 71, Northwestern 61EAST LANSING, Mich. Keith Appling scored 16 points and Gary Harris added 12 to lift No. 10 Michigan State to a 71-61 win over Northwestern. The Spartans (24-7, 13-5) were eliminated from Big Ten title contention early in their game when Indiana beat Michigan, and Michigan State struggled to put away the undermanned Wildcats. Northwestern (13-18, 4-14) rallied from a 13-point firsthalf deficit, tying the game at 51 before the Spartans recovered. Kale Abrahamson scored 16 points for Northwestern, which has lost eight straight. Michigan State senior Derrick Nix scored 10 points in his final home game. The Spartans shot 66 percent from the field and 6 of 10 from 3-point range.No. 14 OSU 68, Illinois 55COLUMBUS, Ohio Deshaun Thomas, playing perhaps his final home game for No. 14 Ohio State, scored 19 points to lead the Buckeyes to a 68-55 victory over Illinois.

The Rams (24-7, 12-4) lost their chance to clinch a tie with Saint Louis for the A-10 title. VCU is the No. 2 seed. Juvonte Reddic led the Rams with 20 points and Treveon Graham had 17. The Owls played their final regular-season game in the Atlantic 10. Theyre joining the football-playing members of the Big East.No. 22 Wisc. 63, Penn State 60STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Traevon Jackson made a contested 3-pointer at the buzzer and finished with 15 points, and No. 22 Wisconsin survived an upset scare from Penn State with a 6360 win in its regular-season finale. The Badgers (21-10, 12-6 Big Ten) went the length of the court with less than 4 seconds left. Jackson pulled up at the wing and made the 3 over the outstretched arm of Kevin Montminy. Officials upheld the basket on the review, and anxious fans at the Jordan Center let out a collective sigh of disappointment. D.J. Newbill had tied the game with 5 seconds left with a jumper. Wisconsin nearly threw the ball away on the ensuing inbounds, but managed to hold on in the scrape on the floor and called timeout to set up Jacksons basket. Jermaine Marshall finished with 23 points for Penn State (10-20, 2-16).

Manager John Farrell received the MRI results during the game. He expects Ortiz to be out for five to seven days because of inflammation. Ortiz had MRI tests done on both heels Saturday for comparative purposes. The eight-time All-Star is still making his way back from a strained right Achilles tendon that limited him to 90 games last season. David Ross hit a threerun homer for Boston and John Lackey allowed two runs and four hits in 3 2/3 innings.Marlins 10, Braves 2KISSIMMEE Chone Figgins was 4 for 4, Wade LeBlanc pitched four scoreless innings and the Miami Marlins defeated the Atlanta Braves 10-2. LeBlanc gave up five hits and walked none as he ran his spring training scoreless streak to nine innings. The left-hander, who threw 28 of his 42 pitches for strikes, is competing with John Maine and Kevin Slowey for the final spot in the Miami rotation. Braves starter Tim Hudson labored through five innings, throwing 97 pitches and allowing six runs, nine hits, two hit batters and one walk. Marcell Ozuna hit a threerun homer in the first inning and fellow outfield prospect Christian Yelich had a two-run drive in the seventh. B.J. Upton was 3 for 3 for the Braves and is hitting .382 (13 for 34).Yankees 3, Blue Jays 0DUNEDIN David Phelps kept up his strong spring training, allowing three hits over five innings in the New York Yankees 3-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ allowed four hits in 3 1/3 scoreless innings. Yankees ace CC Sabathia, the expected opening day starter, threw 52 pitches during a simulated game at George M.

Making his third start of the spring, Marcum allowed only one hit and didnt walk anyone in 3 2/3 innings. St. Louis starter Jamie Garcia was equally baffling to New York hitters. The left-hander threw five shutout innings, surrendering four hits and a walk. The Mets scored in the eighth when Travis dArnaud drew a walk from Edward Mujica, moved up on a wild pitch and later came home on Jordany Valdespins single. Jamie Hoffman hit a tworun double in the ninth.Tigers 2, Nationals 1LAKELAND Rick Porcello pitched five shutout innings and the Detroit Tigers beat the Washington Nationals 2-1. Porcello gave up three hits and struck out four. He has fanned 14 without a walk this spring, and has a 2.08 ERA. Porcello is competing with Drew Smyly for the final opening in the Tigers rotation.

Andy Dirks had two hits for the Tigers, improving his spring average to .308. He is in competition with Brennan Boesch and Quintin Berry for the left field slot, and all three played against Washington.Pirates (ss) 5, Orioles 2SARASOTA Miguel Gonzalez allowed four runs in two innings to a split squad of Pittsburgh Pirates in the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 loss. Gonzalez, the Orioles second-leading winner in 2012, started for the second time this spring and allowed a fourrun second that was made worse by left fielder Nate McLouths error. With one out in the second, Brad Hawpe hit a ball to leftcenter that McLouth had a hard time handling on a windy day. McLouth was charged with an error, and quickly four runs scored on four hits. Three of the runs were unearned. Gerrit Cole, the first pick in the 2011 draft, allowed a tworun homer to Ryan Flaherty in the third inning. Cole was charged with two runs and four hits in four innings.Phillies 7, Astros 1KISSIMMEE Cole Hamels gave up one hit in five innings and Laynce Nix homered for the Philadelphia Phillies in a 7-1 victory over the Houston Astros. Hamels retired 14 straight batters after giving up a leadoff double to Tyler Greene in the first inning. Brandon Laird was the only other batter to reach against Hamels, drawing a two-out walk in the fifth. Greene scored Houstons run on a groundball. Hamels struck out one in his fourth spring start. Freddy Galvis had three straight hits for the Phillies and Erik Kratz hit a two-run triple off Jarred Cosart. Astros starter Brad Peacock worked three shutout innings.

Chris Getz added three hits and two RBIs as the Royals won for the 13th time in 14 games this spring. Pujols homered off lefthander Bruce Chen in the fifth. The slugger also singled and walked, but Matt Young was used as a courtesy runner for Pujols, who had offseason knee surgery. Max Ramirez also homered for the Royals. Vernon Wells and Hank Conger went deep off Kansas City starter Luke Hochevar, who got the win despite giving up four runs and five hits in 3 1/3 innings.Rangers 7, Indians 6GOODYEAR, Ariz. Craig Gentry hit a two-run homer off Brett Myers to pace the Texas Rangers to a 7-6 win over the Cleveland Indians. Gentry added a single and scored another run. Jeff Baker, a non-roster invitee for Texas, hit an RBI double and single in his first two at-bats, making it eight straight plate appearances in which hed reached base. Myers, who pitched 70 times in relief last season, threw three scoreless innings before the Rangers got to him in the fourth for five runs. Myers will be the Indians No. 3 starter this season.

Heath Bell pitched a scoreless seventh to get the victory. Jimmy Henderson took the loss.From wire report money to pay for stadium upgrades. Sun Life Stadium is still getting $2 million a year from the state that was used to convert it for baseball use even though the Miami Marlins have since moved out. This is corporate welfare for a billionaire, auto dealer Norman Braman said when he testified against the Dolphins stadium bill last week. The push by professional sports teams comes as legislators question some of the states existing economic development incentives. Some of the deals have gone bust. Sen. Joe Negron, RStuart and the Senate budget chief, says he wont support any new incentives for sports teams unless the state finds a way to pay for them. A Senate panel, for example, this week approved the elimination of a 30-year-old tax break for banks in order to pay for the Dolphins stadium bill. If you want to have new tax incentive program, go find some tax incentive programs that arent working or arent as important, Negron said. Lets not stack one on the other year after year. Its unclear, however, what will happen if any of the bills reach Gov. Rick Scott. Scott has drawn up a list of five principles for local communities and pro sports teams seeking money from Tallahassee. They include a requirement that local governments and team owners provide matching money for any stadium upgrades. The governor also would like each sports deal reevaluated every five years and to put in a payback provision if the deal does not generate as much money as initially promised. And the governor would like a requirement that a team remains in place during the time that any statebacked bonds are being paid off. If an owner moves the team, Scott would like them to pay back the money they had received. Im responsible for the taxpayers of the state, Scott said this week when asked about the Dolphins. Is it a good use of taxpayer money and can we get a return? But the Scott administration has been quick to point out that that it is not mandating that every bill meet all five principles in order to avoid his veto. And the governor wants legislators to commit to $5 million a year from now on to help cities improve ballparks that are used by Major League Baseball teams for spring training. In recent years, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers and Chicago White Sox have moved their camps to Arizona. Fears that more will move persist. Currently, 15 teams train in each state. The state already has spent more than $40 million in the past decade, but the state put a cap on the amount of money and number of cities that could qualify for the funding.

B4MONDAY, MARCH11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESCOREBOARD green well past the pin and off the green. He had to chip close just to save par. McDowell hit his approach on the second hole to 7 feet and looked as if he might pick up another shot. In what might have been the most significant putt Woods made, he buried an 18-footer for birdie. Thats how it went all weekend. Woods never gave anyone a chance, and he didnt give anyone much hope. His lead was back to four shots, he hit an 8iron to 4 feet on the par-3 fourth hole, and no one seriously challenged him the rest of the way. Mickelson hit a 200-yard shot into the breeze and over the water to a foot for a tap-in birdie on the par-5 eighth to get within four shots with 10 holes to play. He missed far too many short putts, however, making bogey on the ninth and 11th holes to fall too far back to matter. That allowed another easy walk up the 18th hole for Woods to collect another WGC title, another seven-figure check, and offer another reminder that he is closer than ever to getting back to the top of golf. Woods now has won over $24 million in the WGCs alone since the series began in 1999, winning 43 percent of the tournaments. This was his 76th career win on tour, leaving him six short of the record 82 wins by Sam Snead.Brown earns 1st PGA winRIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico Scott Brown made birdie on the 18th hole to go from a one-shot deficit to a one-shot victory in the Puerto Rico Open for his first PGA Tour title. Brown closed with a 2-under 70. He earned a two-year exemption on tour and a spot in the PGA Championship this summer. Fabian Gomez of Argentina had a oneshot lead until he went over the green and into a bunker on his third shot, blasted out to 15 feet and missed the par putt. He closed with a 71 and tied for second with Jordan Spieth. The 19-year-old from Texas had a 67. Brown finished at 20-under 268.Kisner wins Chile ClassicSANTIAGO, Chile Kevin Kisner closed with a 4-under 68 to win the Chile Classic and earn his second career title on the Web.com Tour.

Kenseths decision to leave for a seat on Gibbs team was an open secret for much of last season, although the veteran star never really explained his move. The 400-mile race was the first real test for NASCARs new Gen-6 car on the intermediate tracks theyre built to race. Although Hamlin commanded the weeks headlines when his pessimism about the car drew a stiff $25,000 fine from NASCAR, most drivers were curious how the Gen-6 would work in its ideal 1.5-mile environment. Any drivers who still think its too tough to pass in the new car must not have been watching Busch, who made two lengthy charges up to early leads, doing it both before and after a pit-row speeding penalty dropped him back to 18th. Busch charged through the field with impressive ease and took the lead out of a restart with a daredevil move on the apron with 102 laps to go. He went three wide and got underneath Kahne while kicking up dust well below the white line. Kahne set the qualifying speed record on the Vegas track last year, but rain wiped out qualifying this week. He reclaimed the lead and held it until Kenseth nosed ahead out of another restart with 36 laps left when Kahne had trouble getting out of pit row, nearly hitting Stewart. I had an unbelievable car throughout the whole race, Kahne said. We just came out, I think, sixth (out of the pit). Tough to say we would have got by him anyway. I had a great day. I drove so hard every single lap today, and thats just the new Gen-6 car. It was a lot of fun. I love it. The Gen-6 is still a work in progress, however. Several drivers reported various problems with their cars early on, with Clint Bowyer and Stewart both dropping far back in the opening laps. After three days of chilly weather in the desert, warmer temperatures Sunday changed the tracks feel, and teams struggled to adjust to the slickness.Kobalt Tools 400 ResultsSunday At Las Vegas Motor Speedway Las Vegas, Nev.

Spring Hills Jeff Eberly picked up his second heat win of the year and went on to become the fifth feature winner of the season in the Mini Stock division despite choosing to start in the back row of the seven-car field on Saturday. Eberly slid into the top 3 on lap 8s turn 1 and passed second-place finisher Shannon Kennedy, of Summerfield, on the inside at turn 2 of lap 11. Kennedy, Weirsdales Jeff Daniels (third place) and points leader Kevin Stone (fourth), of Dade City, stayed close together for the final eight laps with each sustaining their spots. Bushnells Stan Butler took advantage of a strong start following a heat win and outlasted a hard-charging Darren Bass in 20 laps in the three-car Dwarf feature. Bass appeared to be the fastest on the track down the stretch while riding 2012 champion Bo Bass No. 14 vehicle. The Citrus County Speedway returns to action on April 6, with the Florida United Promoters Late Model Series, Modified Mini Stocks, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks and Hornets on the racing card.

Associated PressIn comics, the first issue is where the story starts and the legend begins. For readers, a print copy of issue one can be hard to find and expensive to buy. But those rules dont apply to tablets, laptops and smartphones both for comics fans and those curious about characters they may have seen in film or on television. Part of that fascination with superheroes and their growing cachet in popular culture is why Marvel Entertainment, home to the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and the Avengers, among others, made more than 700 first issues available to digital readers starting Sunday for free through the Marvel app and the companys website. After Tuesday, theyll be sold for $1.99 to $3.99 per issue. The titles go from the 1960s Silver Age to contemporary issues with characters including Wasp, Mr. Fantastic, Power Man and Iron Fist, said David Gabriel, senior vice president of sales. This is aimed at attracting fans from all walks of life those who know our characters from the big screen, those who were readers but fell out of the habit and our long-term fans too, he said. We believe that if we get those fans in the door, theyll stay and help grow this industry, with purchases both in comic stores and via digital comic outlets. The publisher went through its catalog of more than 13,000 titles that are already available digitally and plucked out the No. 1 issues with historic ones like Amazing SpiderMan by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko or the Fantastic Four by Lee and Jack Kirby as well as modern titles like Civil War, Joss Whedons Astonishing X-Men and characters and teams like the Uncanny Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, too. We never want fans to feel like they need to have read it all. Of course we want them to want to check out those stories, but the beauty of these No. 1 issues is that each is an entry point, he said. So with a character like Iron Man, you can choose if you want to start with the recent Iron Man series from Kieron Gillen or go back a few years to when Matt Fraction launched Invincible Iron Man or even before that. Birthday There are strong indications that you could establish three important relationships in the year ahead that could benefit you materially and socially. However, these new pals might not mix too well with your old friends. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Exercise your initiative instead of waiting for someone else to make the first move. Your chances for achievement are excellent, if you utilize your talents. Aries (March 21-April 19) If you want to accomplish as much as possible, dont be afraid to request assistance. Youll get no volunteers if nobody knows you need help. Taurus (April 20-May 20) It will take a positive frame of mind to realize any of your hopes and expectations. Dont allow any doubts, even a small one, to get a toehold. Gemini (May 21-June 20) The rate of your accomplishment can be enhanced if you clearly define your goals. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Try to avoid involvements that would inhibit your independence and mobility. Additionally, you need activities that are mentally challenging instead of physically routine. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Normally, youre not overjoyed by changes not of your making, yet youll be able to adapt quite advantageously to todays unexpected developments. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Dont discount your mates ideas about issues of mutual importance, even if they are very different from your own. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You wont be content frittering your time away. Tackling a weighty endeavor will be the only thing that brings you happiness. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Devote some time to an activity or a sport that you enjoy. Taking a break from your everyday routines could refurbish your psyche and attitude. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If at all possible, try to entertain some friends to whom you feel socially obligated. Contact them as early as possible to join you in an impromptu get-together. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can best gratify your restlessness by getting in touch with a friend whom you havent seen much lately. It wont matter where you meet, youll just enjoy each others company. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Your prospects for achieving success continue to look good, especially if you choose to work on an idea youve been contemplating that could make or save you some money.

There are 295 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On March 11, 1888, the Blizzard of also known as the Great White Hurricane, began inundating the northeastern United States, resulting in some 400 deaths. On this date: In 1513, Giovanni de Medici was proclaimed pope, succeeding Julius II; he took the name Leo X. In 1861, the Constitution of the Confederate States of America was adopted by the Confederate Congress in Montgomery, Ala. In 1862, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln removed Gen. George B. McClellan as general-in-chief of the Union armies, leaving him in command of the Army of the Potomac, a post McClellan also ended up losing. In 1942, as Japanese forces continued to advance in the Pacific during World War II, Gen. Douglas MacArthur left the Philippines for Australia. (MacArthur, who subsequently vowed, I shall return, fulfilled that promise more than 2 1/2 years later.) In 1965, the Rev. James J. Reeb, a white minister from Boston, died after being beaten by whites during civil rights disturbances in Selma, Ala. In 1977, more than 130 hostages held in Washington, D.C. by Hanafi Muslims were freed after ambassadors from three Islamic nations joined the negotiations. In 1985, Mikhail S. Gorbachev was chosen to succeed the late Soviet President Konstantin U. Chernenko. In 1993, Janet Reno was unanimously confirmed by the Senate to be attorney general. In 2004, 10 bombs exploded in quick succession across the commuter rail network in Madrid, Spain, killing 191 people and wounding more than 2,000 in an attack linked to al-Qaida-inspired militants. In 2011, a magnitude-9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami struck Japans northeastern coast, killing nearly 20,000 people and severely damaging the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power station. Ten years ago: A U.S. Army helicopter crashed near Fort Drum in upstate New York, killing eleven soldiers. Five years ago: The top U.S. military commander for the Middle East resigned amid speculation about a rift over U.S. policy in Iran. One year ago: Sixteen Afghan villagers mostly women and children were shot dead as they slept, allegedly by U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales. Todays birthdays: Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is 82.

Associated PressThis image provided by Marvel Entertainment shows the cover of the first issue of Uncanny Avengers. Marvel Entertainment made more than 700 first issues available to digital readers starting Sunday via its app and website. Marvel releasing No. 1s digitally Associated PressWEST PALM BEACH, Fla. All the time-stamped rigors of daily journalism are behind her, but the pace of Susan Spencer-Wendels life has only been hastened. She is dying. And dealt a diagnosis she knows she cant beat, the race is on to finish. Her greatest story. Her toughest assignment. Her final deadline. Spencer-Wendels job as a court reporter at The Palm Beach Postmade her a local fixture, reporting on everything from the 2000 recount to Rush Limbaughs legal woes. But what was once a constant rush to be first with her courthouse scoops has become a dash to live her remaining days joyfully, complete a long goodbye to those she loves, and record it all in a book that has drummed huge interest and multimillion-dollar book and movie deals. The clock ticks forward as her body is betrayed by Lou Gehrigs disease and yet so much is left to do. Her life has been full of happiness and she sees no reason her last days should be much different. Life is full of chapters, she says, knowing full well this is her last.Spencer-Wendel was on auto-pilot, locked in a time-worn routine of breaking news at the Postand navigating the daily dance of sibling warfare at home with her three children. That day in 2009 was just like every other, until she undressed for bed and noticed her left hand, scrawny and pale, starkly different from her right. You need to go to the doctor, her husband, John Wendel said. She went through a year of medical appointments and tests and a subsequent year of denial. She sunk into depression and contemplated suicide. When the verdict was finally delivered, there was no surprise. On the way back from the neurologist, she waited outside when her husband stopped in Burger King for a bite. And reflecting on the news she received, she was overcome with a strange feeling of gratitude, for the 44 years she had lived with nary a health problem to speak of, for the career, the family, the travels, for all shed been blessed with. Before long, a roadmap was in place for her remaining time. She would travel the places she wanted to go, surround herself with the people she loved, prepare her family for whats to come. She would live. Joyfully. She went to California to find her birth mother; to New York, where her teenage daughter tried on wedding dresses for a glimpse of a day theyll never share; to Budapest, where she and her husband retraced footsteps of an earlier life; to the Yukon, in a vain attempt to see the Northern Lights with her lifelong best friend; to the Caribbean, to Cyprus, and on and on. Along the way, she wrote stories about two of her trips for the Postthat were so heartbreakingly recorded they caught the eye of HarperCollins, which gave her a $2.3 million deal, and Universal Pictures, which followed with a seven-figure offer of its own. She sprinted to continue her travels and to put them in writing, tapping out the vast majority of her book, Until I Say Goodbye, on her iPhone using just her right thumb. She believes it is the best thing she has ever written, this narrative in which her travels are documented alongside her own decline. Now 46, the woman who rushed to hearings and banged out stories in a flash no longer can walk or swallow a pill. But she offers a manuscript as likely to tug at the funny bone as the tear ducts. I did not want to write a maudlin book, she says in an interview, I wanted people to laugh. It is tinted by her life in journalism, easy-to-digest chapters with simple language, each of them like standalone stories buttressed by engaging starts and even stronger finishes. It was a conscious effort on her part, and that of her coauthor Bret Witter, to focus so intently on each storys ending. And shes quick to see the parallels in her own life, her own search for a powerful ending. As that day draws closer, shes comforted by the way her son Aubrey notices the skys brushstrokes as the sun goes down, how Wesley talks of being a dolphin trainer and Marina dreams of living in New York. She thinks about her husband John and prays he finds love again, that he loses not a moment to guilt. She laughs and reads and writes. She lives the best she can, hoping to impart lessons with her parting choices. I am not gone, she writes. I have today. I have more to give. I know the end is coming but do not despair.Spencer-Wendels body has withered and weakened. She must rely on her husband to do nearly everything for her, from lifting a Parliament to her lips for a drag to folding her hands on her lap and fixing her hair. As the books March 12 release approached, though, her appearance was most notable for the wide smile she wore and the peace she radiates. She relaxes this average Tuesday afternoon, watching Law & Order in her den, enjoying a lick from her new French bulldog and laughing with glee when her sister pays a visit. The book is done, the travels are over, but Spencer-Wendel has found a measure of solace as her life draws to a close. Most ALS patients die within three to five years of diagnosis. She knows her days are few. Though there are new challenges each day, Spencer-Wendel has also found new joy. Eating and swallowing keep getting harder, but shes thrilled by the interest in her book, by the new articles and clippings that keep arriving in her mailbox. Her voice becomes more and more garbled, yet she relishes the time her and her husband share even though it is her illness that forced him to quit his job. She constantly looks on the bright side. I listen often to one of my favorite rock songs, guitarist Eric Johnsons Cliffs of Dover, she recalled by email. And I think Thank God I was not a guitarist! I watch ballet and think Thank God I wasnt a dancer. She tries not to wish for the things she knows she cant have. She tries not to wish for a cure. She is comforted by the windfall her book has brought, the financial freedom it will bring to those around her. But she must prepare her children for whats next, must say everything thats left to be said. Some of it, she hopes has been communicated through her writing and her philosophies and her outlook. To accept what comes. To relish the journey. To see fear as a waste of energy. More than anything else, she wants to leave her family so well situated that they will thrive as much after the day comes as before. That they will live. Joyfully. Florida reporter faces lifes toughest deadline

B6MONDAY, MARCH11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.P .G. Wodehouse, a prolific English author who spent a lot of his life on Long Island, had several unhappy experiences with aunts when he was young. He transferred this animosity to his books, including this passage from a Bertie Wooster and Jeeves novel: There came from without the hoof-beats of a galloping relative, and Aunt Dahlia whizzed in. Bridge players whether an aunt or an uncle or another relative need entries for various reasons, including to cash winners, to take finesses and to draw trumps. In this deal, what is the critical entry card that allows South to make four spades after West leads the heart queen? A simple Stayman sequence leads to four spades. (Note that a red-suit lead defeats three no-trump.) South starts with four losers: one in each suit. The careless declarer wins trick one and immediately plays a trump. But then West can win with his ace and lead another heart (East being careful to complete a high-low to show his doubleton). Suddenly South cannot avoid going down one. The more thoughtful declarer realizes that he must eliminate the heart loser before touching trumps. And once the diamond ace has been dislodged, he can discard two hearts from the board. But he must be careful to win the first trick with dummys king. South then calls for the diamond six. East wins and returns the heart five, but declarer takes that with his carefully conserved hand entry, the heart ace, and cashes his two diamond winners, discarding dummys remaining hearts. Finally, with only three losers, he plays on trumps. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53 I ns id e C om b a t R escue A re Y ou T oug h er th an a Boy Scout? A re Y ou T oug h er th an a Boy Scout?

Now he is lying about money, saying, Oh, this is set aside to fix the cars. But I know he is frittering it away and wasting his time. He always has excuses about why he cant fix the cars, but if thats the case, why hang on to them? We have more than 10 cars on our lot, and only one is really drivable. Another is a collectible that he doesnt like to get dirty. The rest are wrecks. He acts as if the drivable vehicle belongs to him, but he bought it for me when I graduated college as a replacement for one that was stolen. He drives it every day, and I have to beg to use it. I have lost my mobility and independence, and he doesnt care. I work full time and bring in a decent income. He is retired and watches videos and putters around on the computer. I am angry and tired of his lies. If he really wanted to fix the cars, he would. I am sick of all of the excuses and lies. Why doesnt he do something about these wrecks? Some have been sitting there for 20 years. Frustrated in Northern New York Dear Frustrated: Somewhere in the back of his head, your husband believes he will get around to fixing these cars. He is reluctant to part with them, because it means giving up that little fantasy. The wrecks may be annoying but are not critical to your marriage. Taking the only usable car, however, is a problem. Can you afford another car? If so, get one for yourself. If not, stop begging. Tell your husband the car belongs to you and you intend to use it to get to work and run errands. Maybe it will give him some incentive to deal with the wrecks. Dear Annie: My husband and I love our youngest daughter and have always been proud of her accomplishments. However, now in her late 40s, she has become involved with a religious group that does not celebrate birthdays or holidays. Over Christmas, I sent out some email greetings to my list of friends, and she was included. She called, outraged, and I was forced to admit that I do not believe as she does. Now, I dont hear from her anymore. What can I do? Blue Christmas Dear Blue: Not much. Your daughters lack of tolerance is not unusual for someone who has adopted new religious beliefs. Please try to stay in touch. Send her letters or emails letting her know you miss her and keeping her up to date on family news. Do not mention her religion or yours or the argument you had. We hope, over time, her stringent position will mellow a bit and she will contact you again. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Midwest Cook, who is appalled when other peoples children say they dont like what shes serving. She says her own children will happily eat anything besides sauerkraut and Brussels sprouts. It seems unfair to me to acknowledge her own childrens food biases, but assume that any other childs preferences are a result of being pampered. Manners, like saying no, thank you, can be taught, but some people simply cannot eat the way others do. If Midwest Cook will be regularly entertaining others children, she might ask in advance whether they have things they cant (or wont) eat. This would save her guests, even the children, the awkwardness of offending the hosts by declining food. No Fish, Please Dear No Fish: Unless there are serious allergies, it is unreasonable to expect hosts to cater to individual tastes. A good host will provide enough variety that no one goes hungry. A good guest will find something to nibble on without complaint. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

David Desharnais, Brian Gionta, and Francis Bouillon also scored, and P .K. Subban had three assists. Ryder has seven assists and two goals in seven games since being acquired from Dallas on Feb. 26. Peter Budaj stopped 14 shots for the Canadiens, who won for the fourth time on their five-game trip and earned their ninth road victory of the season. The Canadiens swept the season series from the Panthers. Tomas Kopecky and Shawn Matthias scored for Florida, and Jacob Markstrom made 33 saves. The Panthers have lost six of seven and 13 of 16.Rangers 4, Capitals 1WASHINGTON About three hours after asking for more respect from NHL officials, Alex Ovechkin was called for two penalties within seconds of each other, leading to a pair of goals that put the New York Rangers ahead for good in a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Brian Boyle and Ryan Callahan took advantage of Ovechkins miscues to give New York a two-goal lead in the second period. Derek Stepan and Brad Richards also scored, and Martin Biron made 28 saves for the Rangers, who have won five of six.Blue Jackets 3, Red Wings 2, SODETROIT Ryan Johansen and Matt Calvert scored in the shootout and the streaking Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 to complete a home-and-home sweep. Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger had goals in regulation, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 20 saves through overtime for Columbus, which has won five straight. The Blue Jackets topped the Red Wings 3-0 in Columbus on Saturday. Jakub Kindl and Johan Franzen scored for Detroit in regulation, and Jimmy Howard stopped 19 shots. Pavel Datsyuk scored the Red Wings only goal in the shootout.Penguins 6, Islanders 1PITTSBURGH Sidney Crosby tied a career high with five assists, and Chris Kunitz posted his second hat trick of the season in the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-1 rout of the New York Islanders. Crosbys big night boosted his point total to an NHL-leading 45 and helped the Penguins win their fifth straight. James Neal had a goal and three assists, and Pascal Dupuis scored twice for Pittsburgh. Tomas Vokoun made 23 saves. Brian Boyes scored the lone goal for New York, which had a five-game point streak snapped. Evgeni Nabokov stopped just 12 of 17 shots in two periods before getting pulled for the final 20 minutes.Oilers 6, Blackhawks 5CHICAGO Sam Gagner scored two of Edmonton's four goals in the first period and the Oilers beat Chicago 6-5, sending the Blackhawks to their second consecutive loss after their record-breaking start. Ryan Whitney and Taylor Hall each had a goal and an assist for Edmonton, which snapped a five-game losing streak. Captain Shawn Horcoff also scored as the Oilers went 3 for 4 on the power play. Chicago set an NHL record by recording at least one point in the first 24 games of the season. The streak ended with a 6-2 loss at Colorado on Friday night, and coach Joel Quenneville said he was looking forward to seeing how his team responded. The Blackhawks then got off to their worst start of the season before putting together a spirited rally. Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Sheldon Brookbank and Brent Seabrook scored during a wild second period, and Kane added his team-best 14th of the season to get Chicago within one with 13 minutes left.Devils 3, Jets 2, SONEWARK, N.J. Patrik Elias scored the only goal of the shootout, and Johan Hedberg stopped all three Winnipeg attempts as the New Jersey Devils posted a 3-2 victory over the Jets. Ryan Carter and Stephen Gionta scored in regulation time for the Devils, who won for only the second time in nine games since top goalie Martin Brodeur was sidelined with a sore back. Hedberg, who was lifted in a 6-3 loss to Carolina on Saturday night, had 23 saves through overtime. He then turned away Blake Wheeler, Evander Kane and Andrew Ladd in the shootout. Elias netted the winner with a backhander on the Devils' last attempt that just got under goalie Ondrej Pavelec, who made 25 saves before the tiebreaker.Flyers 3, Sabres 2PHILADELPHIA Claude Giroux, Simon Gagne and Max Talbot all scored to help the Philadelphia Flyers snap a three-game losing streak and beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2. Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 18 shots for the Flyers (12-14-1), who are still on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff race. They are ahead of the Sabres, who are buried in last place in the Northeast Division and have lost four straight. Brian Flynn and Jochen Hecht scored for Buffalo. With both teams struggling, tempers were short. Buffalo's Mike Weber slugged it out with Wayne Simmonds, and Sabres center Steve Ott threw a punch at Kimmo Timonen.Ducks 4, Blues 2ANAHEIM, Calif. Corey Perry scored the go-ahead goal with 14:40 left in the third period before adding an empty-netter in the final minute, Jonas Hiller made 14 of his 29 saves in the second period, and the Anaheim Ducks tied a franchise record with their 11th consecutive home victory, 4-2 over the St. Louis Blues. Bobby Ryan tied it early in the third and Andrew Cogliano had a short-handed goal, helping the Ducks improve the NHL's second-best record to 18-3-3. Anaheim, 15-2-2 in its last 19 games, hasn't lost at home since the opener against Vancouver. Patrik Berglund had a power-play goal, Ryan Reaves also scored, and Jaroslav Halak made 17 saves for the Blues, who have lost six straight in Anaheim and 10 of 11 there.Wild 4, Canucks 2ST. PAUL, Minn. Zach Parise had two goals and an assist, Niklas Backstrom had 25 saves and the Minnesota Wild beat Vancouver 4-2 to move into a first-place tie with the Canucks. Jason Zucker and Jared Spurgeon also scored for the Wild, who won their fourth straight home game and beat their Northwest Division rivals for the first time this season. Cory Schneider made 28 saves, and Henrik Sedin and Chris Higgins scored for the Canucks, who fell to 1-3-2 in their past six games. The Wild have struggled with slow starts all season, but needed only 24 seconds to take the lead when Parise kicked off a contentious first period with his 10th goal.Avalanche 3, Sharks 2, OTDENVER Matt Duchene scored his second goal of the night just as time was about to expire in overtime, lifting the Colorado Avalanche over the San Jose Sharks 3-2 to stretch their home winning streak to a season-high five straight games. Duchene, who has three goals in his last two games, wristed a shot past Antti Niemi after taking a pass from P.A. Parenteau. Officials upheld the goal after a replay review showed Duchene got the shot off an instant before time would have run out in the extra period. Patrick Marleau scored San Jose's first goal, the 400th of his career. Logan Couture tied the score 2-all at 16:35 of the third when he followed a turnover by Colorado with a slap shot that got past goalie Semyon Varlamov. Associated PressWashington Capitals center Matt Hendricks, right, knocks over New York Rangers center Derek Stepan on Sunday during the second period in Washington.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS L ast summer, soon after Detective Jon Seffern was transferred to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Major Crimes Unit, he got introduced to the illusionary and color-filled world of counterfeiting. And, Seffern said, things began to multiply rather quickly. There was just an influx of reports. I would say it took up about 30 percent of my work, Seffern said. Fake $20 bills are a favorite for counterfeiters. They use ones, fives, twenties and fifties, but the twenties are the most popular, Seffern said. Seffern and fellow unit detective Jose Carreras recently conducted a series of classes with other agency employees about multilayered and textured ways of telling fake or real currency. Seffern and Carreras told the Chronicle several of the seemingly little things the government has done to the currency to help merchants and others spot fakes. Among them, said Seffern, is the color-shifting ink used in the amount numerals of the currency. A slight tilt under a light can show the color change.

Landfill fire damage at $500K C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerA fire that broke out before 1 a.m. Sunday at the countys central landfill garbage cell caused about $500,000 in damage, according to a county fire marshal. Four engines, one squad and one tower were dispatched at 12:21 a.m. to what was at first thought to be a brush fire at the facility at 230 W. Gulf-to-Lake Highway, Lecanto. However, the fire was found to be in the garbage cell. Because of costly repairs to the landfills special, heavy-duty lining and other equipment, the damage was estimated at $500,000, said Kenneth R. Clamer, battalion chief/fire marshal, Citrus Sheriff Fire Rescue. The first fire units from South Kensington Avenue were on scene within six minutes. They quickly established a water supply from a fire hydrant near the landfill entrance. The fire was moving rapidly up the plastic cell liner. Fire crews were successful in preventing the fire from escaping the garbage cell. Grant sought for county Water line to serve residents with arsenic in wells C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerNearly 200 households with private wells within Citrus County have levels of arsenic in the drinking water that exceed the federal standard, according to a county document. At Tuesdays meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), the board will be asked to apply for grant funding to extend the current water utility system to serve residents and future businesses of the Northwest Quadrant of the county. That area comprises the part of the WHAT: Citrus County Board of County Commissioners meeting. WHEN: 1 p.m. Tuesday; public comments and questions will be taken at 1:30 p.m. WHERE: Room 100, Citrus County Courthouse, 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness. AGENDA: Available on the countys website, www.bocc. citrus.fl.us, at the Lecanto Government Building or in the commissioners suite on the second floor of the courthouse in Inverness. WATCH: The meeting will be televised live on cable TV on Channel 622 on Bright House and Channel 9 on Comcast. The meeting also can be viewed live online in a small digital format. See GRANT / Page A9 City manager: Inverness in good financial shape N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS While cities across the country are going bankrupt, the city of Inverness is fiscally solvent and sound, as City Manager Frank DiGiovanni told members of city council earlier this week. A proposed bond debt retirement will put the city in an even better financial situation. As we look at what is the highest and best use of available resources, last year we started looking at debt service, he said. The debt service of the citys general fund is not large, but we think we can put available funds to better use than just applying them to meet the satisfaction of the bonds that are out there. Currently, the city has an outstanding Florida League of Cities bond issue balance of $4.6 million. In the next month or two, city council will vote on using money from existing reserves to pay off the bond MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Citrus County Sheriffs Detective Jon Seffern, left, explains how to identify authentic money versus counterfeit bills Friday morning at the Citrus County Operations Center in Inverness. Along with Detective Jose Carreras, right, Seffern recently conducted classes for others in the sheriffs office on ways to combat counterfeiting in the county.

Middleburg Sheriff: Husband ran over, killed wifeA woman is dead after being run over by her husband in the driveway of their home Saturday night after an argument, authorities said. Nola Collier and her husband were arguing at their home in Middleburg, about 30 miles south of Jacksonville, the Clay County Sheriffs Office said. Brook Collier left the home and got into his car. Nola Collier then ran out of the house and approached the drivers side door, deputies said. She was trying to stop him from leaving, public affairs officer Mary Justino said. Its unclear exactly how the 58-year-old woman was run over, but investigators believe she may have gotten caught between the front and back tires, Justino said. Nola Collier was transported to Orange Park Medical Center, where she died. Justino said the crash is being classified as an accident, but Brook Collier has been charged with leaving the scene of crash involving a death. He was arrested about a half mile away.

From wire reports Page A3 MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerA Hernando woman has become part of a group whose name is a mouthful: Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority Citizens Advisory Committee. In short, its TBARTA-CAC, one of the groups that offer input to the agency created in 2007 by the Florida Legislature to put together a regional transportation master plan for seven counties, from Citrus to Sarasota. Theodora Teddi Rusnak has been appointed to represent the citizens of Citrus County, replacing Ron Lieberman, who was appointed first vice president/ treasurer of the Florida Home Builders Association. A former Chicago resident, Rusnak admits her interest in Floridas environment led up to her active role in policy advisement. I was looking forward to being much more in tune with a nature-oriented community, Rusnak said about her initial goal when she moved to Citrus County. I expected I would be joining the Audubon Society, the Native Plant Society and I was a member of Sierra Club these nature kinds of things and gardening 12 months out of the year. But then Rusnak got involved in civic matters, specifically changes to the countys comprehensive plan and land uses. If I was going to enjoy the nature aspect of the Nature Coast, Id better get pretty savvy with what was going on with the land-use stuff, Rusnak said. Transportation fell into that education. For several years, Rusnak has been the president of the Citrus County Council (CCC), a not-forprofit, nonpartisan consortium of homeowner associations, civic groups and environmental groups. In that role, Rusnak has followed county road issues, such as long-range transportation plans. The idea of how we are laying out communities is going to need to be changed, not only for the benefit of the environment, but also for the people living there, Rusnak said. When the vacancy opened on TBARTA-CAC, Rusnak applied. I was pleasantly surprise and encouraged by the idea that someone coming from a citizens and an environmentalist viewpoint would be chosen, Rusnak said. She said she hoped her appointment meant the CCC and the people it represents were being validated. I take that as one more step forward where government is listening to the people, Rusnak said. The CAC to Rusnak seems to be a point of reality-testing for the TBARTA board members. Having attended a recent board meeting, Rusnak said she was impressed with its reception of public input, because the public is the people who will live with the consequences of board decisions. That is my mission, Rusnak said. To bring that level of litmus testing to the table, not as a member of a special-interest group who would be having immediate benefit from this. Decisions will be made from a perspective of benefit to all than benefit to a few and detriment to all. This lofty mission does not lose sight of peoples self-interest in protecting their investments. There is going to be a lot of self-interest, Rusnak said. For example, homeowners who have seen their property value decline dramatically would like to see development that would lift the value of their homes. We have to try to balance the future of the county while trying to see what will be good for the county as a whole, Rusnak said. The thing about TBARTA that is so different from some of the other kinds of government activities in that this is a very longrange planning group. When you are talking about transportation planning, youre really talking 20, 40, 50 years out. Theres the difference. Balance works its way into planning so far into the future. Making our decisions, we cant afford to be scared, but we shouldnt also have this pollyanna expectation that something like the Suncoast Parkway 2 is going to start being built next week and that its suddenly going to create all this immense wealth in the county, Rusnak said. She accepts the inevitability of the project. But now, Rusnak said, is the time to consider all the issues for interconnectedness. Thats really what transportation routes are all about, Rusnak said. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicleonline. com. MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Strong on environmental issues, Theodora Rusnak known as Teddi looks forward to working with the Citizens Advisory Committee of TBARTA, the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority. Rusnak sees the CAC as a point of reality-testing for policymakers. For Rusnak, 2063 isnt far off its todays business We shouldnt ... have this pollyanna expectation that something like the Suncoast Parkway 2 is going to start being built next week and that its suddenly going to create all this immense wealth in the county. Teddi Rusnak on the need to be realistic when planning the future of Citrus County. C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerThe number of board seats on a merged transportation planning group seemed to be a greater issue to representatives of the cities rather than the county. I would think that in a 6-6 or 5-5 situation, we would find out real quick as to whether or not this is going to work, said Crystal River City Council Member Paula Wheeler at Thursdays workshop of the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), which met to discuss a merger of the TPO with Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The merged group would provide project recommendations to the Florida Department of Transportation. FDOT has encouraged the TPO to merge with an existing MPO rather than form a new separate organization, since 2010 U.S. Census data determined the countys population increase raises it to MPO status having a greater role in regional planning. However, the first stumbling block is the number of board seats. Being the larger county, Hernando would have six seats to Citrus having five. The current TPO has seven seats: three for county commissioners and two for the city council members for each city. In the merger, the cities would each lose one seat. It is overwhelming, said Inverness City Council MemberJacqui Hepfer. We were just starting to come into our own as a TPO. We were starting to muddle through the bureaucratic maze. Now, were back to square one. Hepfer said when she looked at Hernando and Citrus, The two low men on the totem pole are Crystal River and Inverness. She was afraid the merger would destroy any progress the TPO had made. Commissioner John JJ Kenney, however, said that although Hernando appeared to have the upper hand through larger population, the TPO should move ahead because it has no option to form its own MPO. Not to be part of an MPO would mean the county would have no voice in regional transportation planning, he said. I think it just might work, Kenney said about the merger. The county with the larger population having more representatives was a point of law, said Lee Royal, FDOT District 7 community liaison administrator. If its the desire of this board that they want to move forward and have board-to-board discussion with Hernando and talk about the apportionment, wed be happy to facilitate that, Royal said. The second issue was which countys staff would administer the merged MPO. Wheeler was concerned Citrus Countys administration could be taken over by Hernando County staff. Kenney said he could see a composite staff representing both counties. The workshop ended with board members requesting more details through meetings with Hernando. At this point, the TPO was moving forward without a commitment to a merger. WHAT: Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization board meeting. WHEN: 5:15 p.m. Thursday. WHERE: Inverness Government Center, 212 W. Main St., Inverness. CALL: 813-282-8200. TPO balks at notion of one less seat

debt in the general fund, which will save the city $109,550 annually in interest and $341,913 annually toward the principle. That saves the city $2.4 million just in interest through 2035, DiGiovanni said. Councilman Ken Hinkle said the move would put the city in a good position when it comes to applying for grants. Weve put the city in the position where were financially great, he said. When we go for grants, theyll see we know what to do with our money. The $109,000 a year that we save in interest alone we can use for other things. On Friday, DiGiovanni said the money could very well go toward the cost of operating Whispering Pines Park, as well as other costs of maintaining services the city provides its citizens. This puts us in a stable, solid status, DiGiovanni said. We are in an enviable position. Councilwoman Marti Consuegra commented that the guiding principle of the council is to leave Inverness better than when we came, and that this is one way of doing this. Councilwoman Linda Bega added that paying off the bond debt is the right thing to do. The matter will come up for official council vote in April or May.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com. And, if you hold up the bill toward a light source, you a can see a watermark image of the president toward the side of the bill. Its like a hologram. A fake bill would not have that, Seffern said. Another way to spot a good bill, said Carreras, is to feel the label or collar of the image on the bill, it will have texture. Its usually not as smooth as the counterfeit ones. The detectives also demonstrated how the pens used by clerks to check for fakes will leave a mark on a counterfeit, usually because of the quality of paper used. However, according to Seffern, to stay ahead of changing technologies, the criminals have resorted to washing good $1 bills repeatedly to cleanse them of color. Then they would use those dollar bills to make 10and 20-dollar bills. The pen doesnt work on those counterfeits, and all the security features that are in them will still be there, Seffern added. Both Seffern and Carreras believe the counterfeit dollars circulating in the county are primarily from a local source. Seffern said there are several investigations under way, with some promising leads. Meanwhile, the agency is pushing to hand deputies the detection pens so whenever they come in contact with currency, they can check for authenticity. Seffern said the same would be done at the jail when inmates are being processed to track how many counterfeits are entering the facility. Seffern said agency officers also try to educate clerks whenever they receive calls about counterfeits. All counterfeit currency is turned in to the U.S. Secret Service. For more information about spotting counterfeit currency, go to the sheriff website at www. sheriffcitrus.org.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. Once the fire was contained to the cell, the firefighters elicited the help of landfill staff to operate their heavy equipment and cover the burning garbage with sand and soil while fire crews protected the operators and their equipment. Nature Coast EMS provided a standby medical unit to ensure the safety of the firefighters and Central Landfill operators. Other firefighters from Station No. 31 (Homosassa), Station No. 71 (Connell Heights), Station No. 21 (Lecanto) and Station No. 20 (Pine Ridge) also assisted with the blaze. Thanks to the cooperative efforts of the Central Landfill staff and the Citrus Sheriff Fire Rescue, the fire was contained to a small portion of the garbage cell. The scene at was cleared at 4:26 a.m. No injuries were reported. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicleonline.com.

According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, backache and more. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient roll-on applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-800-339-3301.

Fat cat adopted DALLAS An obese stray cat found wandering six months ago near Dallas has slimmed down to 34 pounds and been adopted by the veterinarian overseeing his care. Dr. Brittney Barton said Friday the orange tabby dubbed Skinny is doing well on a special diet to help lose weight and increase his metabolism. Barton said she became attached to the onetime 41pound cat she was treating at an animal orphanage and last month he became part of her family. Skinny joins Bartons husband, three children, a dog and another cat at her home. Barton said Skinny gets along great with the other animals, can jump up on a couch and runs to his food bag at feeding time. She said the house has long hallways that provide good exercise for Skinny.Hit-and-run fakedBERWICK, Pa. Police in central Pennsylvania allege a man fabricated a story about being the victim of a hit-andrun last month because he wanted a ride home. The (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise reported the 18year-old Beach Haven resident was walking along Route 11 in Salem Township at about 1 a.m. Feb. 8 when he called for help. Police said he told officers and Berwick Ambulance personnel he had been struck in the left leg by a pickup truck, but they could find no evidence of an injury. Authorities said he eventually acknowledged having made up the story so he could get a ride. They said the suspect will now face charges of causing a false alarm, filing a false report and disorderly conduct. Ban on booing RIVERHEAD, N.Y. Cheers? Yes. Jeers? Not so much. Officials in the New York town of Riverhead, in eastern Long Island, have adopted a code of public behavior for town hall meetings that bans booing. Newsday reported the Riverhead Town Board voted 4-1 to approve the proposal earlier this week. Councilman James Wooten was the lone dissenter. The town council deleted a measure that also would have banned applause. There are no penalties for violators. Supervisor Sean Walter said the town copied guidelines in other towns. He said the rules are designed to let meetings run more smoothly.Tree tradePORTLAND, Ore. Was it remorse or a tiny tree fairy? Portland parks officials say a Douglas fir sapling resembling one stolen from a tiny Portland park has appeared at the 2-foot-diameter oasis. Last weeks theft captured the citys attention. On Wednesday, park staffers planted a replacement sapling to fill the hole left in the center of the park. Parks officials said a passing driver posted a comment online Friday, noting that a young tree, roots and all, was lying on its side beside the replacement tree. The unidentified driver speculated that perhaps the arborious criminal was feeling remorse. Parks Director Mike Abbate said if the latest tree is healthy, it will be planted in another city park. Even if the thief returned the tree, Sgt. Pete Simpson said police will continue their investigation. In his words, Remorse does not mean case closed. The tiny park lies in a median strip in downtown Portland near the Willamette River. It was established by newspaper columnist Dick Fagan in the 1940s and became an official city park in 1976. Play ball! MUSKEGON, Mich. A community college baseball team in West Michigan took to the field with snow shovels in attempt to clear the way for their home opener. Under the direction of head coach Cap Pohlman, the 30member Muskegon Community College team spent nearly two hours shoveling the infield Thursday. They took turns piling snow into the bed of a trailer pulled by Pohlman using a lawn tractor. Team member Stephan Chandonnet told The Muskegon Chronicle, This is what we get for playing baseball in Michigan. The game is scheduled for Tuesday against Owens Community College, but the coach said it will take a miracle for the game to go forward because of all the snow. The team was expected back out on the field Friday and possibly during the weekend.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Sunday likened political reporters to crack addicts and heroin addicts during a tour of morning talk shows that drew repeated questions about the still-distant 2016 presidential election. Bush, capping a media-heavy week that sparked chatter about a presidential campaign for a third member of his family, tried to keep the conversation focused on his book Immigration Wars. But as Bush wrapped up a conversation with NBCs David Gregory, he likened journalists and their questions about the 2016 campaign to drug addicts. Whos the hottest Florida politician right now? Is it you or Marco Rubio? Gregory asked, referring to Rubio, a senator who is also a potential GOP contender. Who are we more likely to see in the White House? Man, you guys are crack addicts. You really are obsessed with all this politics, Bush replied. The Meet the Press host interrupted, saying hed been called a lot of things, but never a crack addict. OK, heroin addict. Is that better? shot back Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush and brother of former President George W. Bush. Weve got big challenges, and Marco Rubio, to his credit, is working on those. And he deserves a lot of credit for it, and Im very proud of him, Jeb Bush said of his potential rival. After Bush left the Florida governors office in 2007, some urged him to jump into the 2012 race against President Barack Obama. But his brothers low approval ratings could have dragged him down, and there seemed little interest in a national campaign. But with Republicans looking for a new message and messenger, Jeb Bush is signaling hes open to the possibility. Im not saying yes. Im just not saying no, Bush told NBC News last week. Speaking Sunday on CNNs State of the Union, Bush said, When you asked me before 2012 Was I going to run in 2012? and I said no, I went through the process and decided it wasnt appropriate. Now, Ive decided to defer any consideration of it until the proper time to make those kind of considerations, which is out, you know, more than a year from now, for sure, he said. county that is north of Crystal River and portions west of County Road 495 (North Citrus Avenue) to the county line.

Page A10 MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 Adopt pets when able When you lose a dog or cat to death and one who lived with you for many years, your grief says none will ever replace it. There will never be an exact replica, but filling that empty spot in your heart can be accomplished by adopting another animal. A dog requires walking several times a day. But you will benefit greatly from the exercise, lose weight, lower your blood pressure, increase your circulation, etc. No matter how bad your day is, your pet will show, I am overjoyed to see you. You never fail me or disappoint me. You are always a success in my eyes. All I want is your love. Go to the Citrus County animal shelter (352-746-8400), or any number of private shelters. See the phone book for their phone number or address. Also, look in the neighborhood section of the Chronicle. There are individual pictures of adorable animals in private shelters that will melt your heart. Margo Blum Homosassa Advantage enough Questions: Whats wrong with removing federal tax loopholes that were emplaced solely for the affluent, and whats right about the federal government subsidizing oil companies and corporate jets? Observation: Compare like mutual funds that take a $2,500 buy-in to those who take a buy-in of $1 million-or-more, and you will see that simply being wealthy is advantage enough, and requires no additional financial support from wage-earning families. James McIntosh Lecanto Relationships save jobs Re: Letter to the Editor; Revenue shortfallIn the Chronicles Feb. 25 article, Exploring options, these words appear: Revenue shortfall, storm water management and utility fees, franchise fees, additional sales tax, vehicle fleet management, new medical corridor development, roadway bypass plan, water and wastewater authority, impact fee transfers, land development codes, etc. Missing in this agenda is any word about cost-cutting. If a business or family loses half its income, contingent planning should start with reconsideration of all purchases, expenses, hiring and bare essentials. Also missing is how we save Duke as a unique treasure in the survival of Citrus County. Keep in mind that to lure Duke elsewhere, other states would donate land, issue bonds to finance half a new plant and forego any tax revenue for years. What are 600 jobs worth, plus 1,000 more for years of construction? It may take some time to repair the perception of a stick it to em attitude toward industry and business. Duke may be waiting for a kind and friendly invitation to stay put, with an assurance of cooperation. John P Brebner Crystal River I ts not just a womens issue. Granted, thats how many of us are framing last months decision by Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo! Inc., to end telecommuting and require all employees to report to the office. It ignited a firestorm of controversy over whether Mayer, a working mother herself, has backstabbed the sisterhood. Columnist Kathleen Parker called it the latest iteration of the mommy war. But theres another reason we should be debating Mayers policy: some people simply work better alone. My colleagues are rolling their eyes now, so let me rush to provide full disclosure. Ive worked mainly from home for more than 20 years, going into the office just enough that they dont give my desk away. I dont do it because its more convenient. I dont do it because I hate the commute. I do it because Im an introvert. The word is not a synonym for shy, though as a boy, I was that, too. But where shyness is an outsized fear of other peoples disapproval or of social embarrassment, to be an introvert is to be inward turning, more at home in small, intimate groups than large, boisterous ones. It is to prefer the quiet to the loud, reflection to exhortation, solitude to socializing. For years, I struggled with that, wondered why I prefer the rainy afternoon spent watching old movies or reading a book to the sunny afternoon at a backyard barbecue watching people do the electric slide. Then, last year, I chanced upon a book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Cant Stop Talking by Susan Cain. It was the first time anyone had ever explained me to me. Turns out Im not the only one. Turns out introversion is perfectly normal. Except that our culture is biased toward extroverts. Its a bias reflected both in Mayers decision and in the attagirls she has received from the likes of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He argues, as she did, that collaboration synergy is the buzzword produces the best results. This is conventional wisdom in American business. Indeed, Cain notes that per person square footage in offices has shrunk by over half since the s in the belief that open space floor plans that force people together facilitate teamwork and, thus, productivity. For some of us, it probably does. But not for all. The savvy CEO will understand this, will realize that the alone space is where introverts find the stuff that powers their best work and will wherever practical accommodate that. And, as Cain points out, quiet people, left to their own devices, have produced rather significant moments in culture, science and politics. Her list of their contributions includes: the theory of relativity; Schindlers List, Charlie Brown, Google and the Montgomery bus boycott. All that said, I have a sinking fear that after this column, Ill never be invited to another backyard barbecue again. Good friends, please invite me; Ill even bring the banana pudding. But at the same time, please forgive me if I leave early. As Cain notes, it is not that the introvert doesnt enjoy the company of others. Rather, its that after a certain point, it leaves him feeling physically drained. Thats who I am less Bill Clinton than Al Gore and Ive given myself permission to stop fighting it. Marissa Mayer may or may not be a traitor to modern mommyhood. But she has bought into the one-size-fits-all mentality that says productivity and creativity are found only when colleagues meet at the water cooler. She is wrong. I am proof. This week, Ill go into the office to make sure my desk is still there. Ill kibitz with my friends. But when its time to get down to work Ill slip on the noise-canceling headphones, block out the world and seek what people like me always, instinctively seek: a quiet and alone inner space where it is possible to simply, finally...

Its longand short-term planning is fashioned around that vision, and the city is moving closer to it with each new project. An important piece of Invernesss capital improvement plan is about to take shape: North Apopka Boulevard from Dampier Street to beyond the Withlacoochee State Trail will be transformed into whats being called Bicycle Boulevard, with completion timed for the July 3 Patriotic Evening event that takes place in Liberty and Wallace Brooks parks on the lake. Bicycle Boulevard, part of the citys Bicycle Master Plan, will connect downtown Inverness with the Withlacoochee State Trail. It also will incorporate traffic-calming features and landscaping, plus improve drainage as well as car parking at Liberty Park. This connector will make pedestrian and bike travel between the lake and downtown safer and more convenient. This linkage with downtown is good for Trail users and good for the city. Plenty of evidence from locations in Florida and elsewhere shows that bicycle facilities encourage tourism and boost the local economy. Trail-users enjoy convenient access to stores, restaurants, attractions and activities in town and, as a local bike shop owner once said, cyclists like to spend money. An added plus is that that trails are the No. 1 mostdesired community amenity sought by prospective homebuyers nationwide. Local contractors Daly & Zilch will be working under tight deadlines for this project, which will be cranking up just as the annual Clean Air Bike Ride brings hundreds of visitors to the Trail in late March. It will be important for Bicycle Boulevard to incorporate wide bike and pedestrian lanes for safe, easy foot and bike travel. Good signage will help draw people between the Trail and downtown, and convenient bike-parking spots in town will accommodate those who want to stop for refreshment or other purchases. As City Manager Frank DiGiovanni notes, reinvigorating the city is an evolution: Youre never finished, he said. But this is another solid step toward fulfilling the citys vision. THE ISSUE: Creating Bicycle Boulevard on North Apopka Avenue.OUR OPINION: Downtown connector and trailhead upgrades are highly desi rable.

Controlling the political class Should we discuss gun control in these United States, or should we discuss the control of insane people by the people of these United States. As difficult as it is for us to imagine, let us pretend that one day, the following may come to pass: There will be many government taxing authorities in this country and they will compete with each other so as to collect more taxes and further waste, fraud and abuse. Some unscrupulous politicians may begin racing to accumulate as much money as they can before the economy collapses. An example of this might be the unnecessary building of sidewalks alongside miles of interstate highways across these United States. Another example might be the forcing the millions of homeowners in one or more of these United States to replace or upgrade their septic systems (at the homeowners expense) through collusion by politicians and lobbyists under the guise of environmental protection. (This could be an example of the corrupt tax.) Another type of tax could be instituted as impact fees, for adding a porch onto ones home, improving a driveway, etc. (This could be called a stealth tax.) Through possible neglect by our politicians, the United States of America becomes a Third World country. The politicians become corrupt, selfserving and apparently incompetent. These same politicians may also decide that they are too important to have to live by many of the laws they made for the people and exempt themselves from their own laws. They may even pass laws to give themselves and their supporters multiple lifetime pensions that cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Some unscrupulous politicians may supply weapons and/or support to certain foreign and domestic groups so as to support a hidden agenda. Things like this have happened in the history of the world and as farfetched as it may seem; could happen in America today. Perhaps the discussion of gun control should be changed to a discussion of insanity control. I personally feel embarrassed when some of my European friends remind me of the tragedy of the many hundreds of people killed by individuals with guns in these United States. Perhaps because of their indoctrination, they neglect an inconvenient truth, and it is that multiple millions of men, women and children have been slaughtered by various governments in what they (Europeans) consider modern history. Perhaps we, as Americans, should remember that for the past 150 years, insane governments around the world (not individual people in these United States) have been responsible for the slaughter (starvation, bombings, firing squads, concentration camps, torture, etc.) of multiple millions of innocents (not counting abortions). Many veterans might be inclined to agree with some of the above. Matt Canning Inverness Consider the total picture Gov. Scott has done it again. When he first took office, he tried to solve our governing problems as he saw them. For the most part he was right, but many people who believed government was the answer to everything got upset. However, his austerity measures appear to have served the state well, as we are slowly recovering. Even with all the obstacles our president places against us, Florida seems to be seeing some slight ray of sunshine. He was criticized by many for his proper decision to reject that train. Some say he passed up an opportunity for some federal funds that went to other areas. Those areas will suffer the unexpected fallout from their folly. All of us may have some additional share in that added cost. Now he has decided to let the federal government come in and pay for an ill-advised Medicaid program. The fact is, as he described it, that regardless of his acceptance or rejection it was going to happen. Florida voters joined much of the rest of the nation in approval of President Obamas destructive policies during last Novembers election. As a result, Gov. Scott felt he must make the best of a bad situation. At least, for three years, Floridas budget will not have to cover this cost. Instead our federal government, which is broke, will pay with some of Obamas stash. The appearance is that Gov. Scott has caved. The reality is that he is accepting something that is going to happen anyway. Also, he would like to serve a second term in an effort to prove he knows how to make Florida shine again. We all must take a serious look at the total picture to see what is happening in our state. If you have some concern as we all should, look at the total picture before you decide yes or no on our governor.Robert E. Hagaman Homosassa Ongoing struggle for equality Mrs. Gregory has her favorite Amendments, she writes. But she has left out one of the most important amendment for women. Supporters of the Equal Rights Amendment between 1972 and 1982 lobbied, marched, rallied, petitioned, etc. Yes, it was difficult. Long ago, in 1776 Abigail Adams wrote to her husband, John, In a new code of laws, remember the ladies and do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. John Adams did not listen to his wife. And so, women could not vote, own property, keep their own wages or even have custody of their children. There has been a struggle ever since. The Equal Rights Amendment passed the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. On March 22, 1972, the proposed 27th Amendment was sent to the states for ratification. Some men didnt like it and so it didnt pass. I was involved in one of the marches while at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Many women engineers and other scientific types marched with me. And so the struggle continues. Ruth J.

Harvard University administrators secretly searched the emails of 16 deans last fall, looking for a leak to reporters about a case of cheating, two newspapers reported. The email accounts belonged to deans on the Administrative Board, a committee addressing the cheating, The Boston Globe and The New York Times reported, citing school officials. The deans were not warned about the email access and only one was told of the search afterward. Harvard University said last month that it issued academic sanctions against about 60 students who were forced to withdraw from school for a period of time in a cheating scandal that involved the final exam in a class on Congress. The school implicated as many as 125 students in the scandal. Congressman King survives boutWANTAGH, N.Y. U.S. Rep.

Cima said one body was of his adult nephew, and it appeared he had been headed to a room where five young children were sleeping. The other was of his nephews pregnant fiance. He says he then raced to the front of the house, but the childrens bodies were already lined up in the yard. Officials have not identified the victims.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated Press Cardinal Marc Ouellet, top center, prays next to Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco on March 6 during a vespers celebration in St. Peters Basilica at the Vatican. Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan A series of security problems and fractured relations with Afghan leaders plagued Defense Secretary Chuck Hagels first trip here as Pentagon chief, including the Afghan presidents accusations that the U.S. and the Taliban are working in concert to show that violence in the country will worsen if most coalition troops leave. The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Joseph Dunford, quickly rejected the charges President Hamid Karzai made Sunday as categorically false. But the accusations were just the latest in a series of disputes that have frayed relations between the two nations as the U.S. works to wind down the war and turn the countrys security over to the Afghans. Speaking to reporters shortly after Karzai made the comments, Dunford said the Afghan leader has never expressed such views to him but said it was understandable tensions would arise as the coalition balances the need to complete its mission with the Afghans move to exercise more sovereignty. Dunfords comments came, however, soon after U.S. officials cancelled a news conference with Hagel and Karzai because of a security threat just a day after a suicide bomber on a bicycle struck outside the Afghan Defense Ministry, killing nine civilians and wounding 14 others. Hagel heard the explosion from the location where he was meeting with Afghan officials but was never in danger. Hagel met with Karzai Sunday night and said that he discussed all the key issues with the president. He also rejected any suggestions that the U.S. is in collusion with the Taliban. Speaking to reporters traveling with him, Hagel declined to detail his conversation with Karzai but said, I think he understands where we are and where weve been, and hopefully where were going together. Hagel said hes known Karzai since shortly after the invasion in late 2001. The U.S. and Afghan leaders are in the midst of negotiations over the longterm presence of American forces in Afghanistan beyond the end of 2014, when all combat troops are scheduled to leave. U.S. officials would not provide details on the security concerns that led to cancelling the news conference. Associated Press U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel speaks to the press Sunday following his meeting with Afghanistans President Hamid Karzai in Kabul, Afghanistan. Hagel rebuffed in first trip to Afghanistan Karzai accuses United States of working with Taliban to keep forces in country Associated PressVATICAN CITY T he Vatican insists that the cardinals participating in the upcoming conclave will vote their conscience, each influenced only by silent prayers and reflection. Everybody knows, however, that power plays, vested interests and Machiavellian maneuvering are all part of the game, and that the horse-trading is already under way. Can the fractious Italians rally behind a single candidate? Can the Americans live up to their surprise billing as a power broker? Will all 115 cardinals from around the world be able to reach a meeting of minds on whether the church needs a people-friendly pope or a hard-edged manager able to tame Vatican bureaucrats? This time there are no star cardinals and no big favorites, making the election wide open and allowing the possibility of a compromise candidate should there be deadlock. While deliberations have been secret, there appear to be two big camps forming that have been at loggerheads in the run-up to the conclave. One, dominated by the powerful Vatican bureaucracy called the Curia, is believed to be seeking a pope who will let it continue calling the shots as usual. The speculation is that the Curia is pushing the candidacy of Brazilian Odilo Scherer, who has close ties to the Curia and would be expected to name an Italian insider as Secretary of State the Vatican No. 2 who runs dayto-day affairs at the Holy See. Another camp, apparently spearheaded by American cardinals, is said to be pushing for a reform-minded pope with the strength to shake up the Curia. These cardinals reportedly want archbishop Angelo Scola as pope. The other key question to resolve is whether the pope should be a pastoral one somebody with the charisma and communication skills to attract new members to a dwindling flock or a managerial one capable coralling sex-abuse scandals and bureaucratic disarray. There is one more camp, which presumably commands enough votes to influence the election. It is the Benedict faction, the 67 voting cardinals who owe their red hat and presence in the conclave to the most recent pope. They make up more than half of the voters. Their loyalty to Benedict could damage the ambitions of any cardinal thought to have damaged his papacy and been part of the divisions that Benedict lamented in his final addresses. Who might that be? Their names are presumably listed in a secret report prepared for Benedict about the Vatileaks scandal. Only a few people have seen that report. None of the cardinals who will be voting are among them. As conclave convenes, power plays under way While deliberations have been secret, there appear to be two big camps forming. One, dominated by the powerful Vatican bureaucracy called the Curia, is believed to be seeking a pope who will let it continue calling the shots. Another is said to be pushing for a reform-minded pope with the strength to shake up the Curia. Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration has embarked on an aggressive trade agenda that could lower barriers and increase U.S. exports to Asia and Europe. To make that a reality, though, it may first have to negotiate future trade policy a little closer to home with Congress. The administration hopes to complete talks by October on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which would reduce duties on a wide range of goods and services in the worlds most vibrant trading area. Eleven countries, including Australia, Peru, Malaysia, Vietnam, Mexico and Canada, are participating, and Japan has expressed interest in joining. In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama announced plans for a second deal, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, which would link the United States and the European Union, the worlds two largest economies. Departing U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk added to the agenda in January when he notified Congress of plans to start negotiations for a new trade agreement on international trade in services. The talks will include a group of 20 trading partners representing nearly two-thirds of global trade in services. Obama has set a goal of doubling exports by the end of next year, after drawing criticism from free-trade advocates during his first term for moving too slowly on trade issues. First, Obama must nominate a successor to Kirk. Then, he has to work with lawmakers to restore a procedure called trade promotion authority that is regarded as key to getting trade treaties finalized and approved by Congress. Congress wants role as Obama pushes trade agenda

Bresnahan came off a fourth-place finish in the season-opening Florida United Promoters Late Model Series Icebreaker 100 on March 2 the highest finish among county drivers to cruise to a 50-lap feature triumph on Saturday. Despite the success, he says his No. 69 machine is still far from its potential. Weve still got a long time to go, Bresnahan said. The lap times are terrible. I built this car brand new back in 2004 and just got it back a few weeks ago. I cant complain about winning, but if we wouldve started further back I dont think wed have done it. Points leader Steve Dorer, of Lakeland, made his way up from toward the back of the field to place second for the second time in as many features this season, while Inverness Herb Neumann Jr. a feature winner in Open Wheeled Modifieds on Feb. 16 and a heat winner Saturday surged from the middle of the pack for his second thirdplace showing of the season. Lake Panasoffkees Todd Brown won the other Late Model heat of the night. In the Modified Mini Stock division, Bushnells Chris Allen won his first feature and second heat of the season to move within three points of point leader Michael Lawhorn, of Clermont. The car was good, Allen said. It drives real well, but if it had new tires itd be a heck of a lot better. Allen went low on second-place finisher Johnny Siner, of Homosassa, on lap 14 and stayed in front the remaining six laps. Siner, who was celebrating a birthday, moved ahead of fellow Homosassa driver Wayne Heater for the lead on lap 2, and Heater fell to the third spot on lap 7 en route to a third-place finish in the 10-car event. Brooksvilles James Ellis, a second-place finisher on Feb. 23, won the divisions other heat race. Dunnellon Modified Minis fixture Clint Foley, who was a feature winner two weeks ago and stood one point behind Allen to begin the night, did not race. Flanagan won his third feature in four races to build on his commanding point lead after culminating his charge to the front from the fifth position by the end of lap 4. He was trailed by Inverness John Chance (second place), who had his third top 3 finish of the season, and Floral Citys Dora Thorne, who remains in second place in the point standings. I cant complain about winning, but if we wouldve started further back I dont think wed have done it. Mike Bresnahan Super Late Model feature winner Saturday at Citrus County Speedway.

Kenseth celebrates birthday with Vegas victory Associated PressLAS VEGAS Matt Kenseth won on his 41st birthday for his new Joe Gibbs Racing team, barely holding off Kasey Kahne for his third victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday. Kenseth earned his 25th career victory in just his third start in the JGR Toyota after leaving Roush Fenway Racing in the offseason. He took the lead away from Kahne out of a late restart and fended off Kahnes Chevrolet over the final laps, adding another trophy to his Las Vegas victories in 2003 and 2004. I was real nervous all day, Kenseth said. (Kahne) had the best car. I told (crew chief) Jason (Ratcliff) with about 12 to go that I was sorry we were going to lose. We were just too tight. We didnt have the fastest car there, but we had it where we needed it to be. Pole sitter Brad Keselowski finished third, with hometown driver Kyle Busch in fourth and Carl Edwards fifth. Jimmie Johnson, the overall points leader, was sixth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. seventh. Defending Vegas champion Tony Stewart finished 11th, while Denny Hamlin was 15th. Kenseth is just the third NASCAR driver to win on his birthday, joining Cale Yarborough who did it twice and Busch. His win was the 50th for Toyota in Sprint Cup Series competition. Kenseth has won at least one race in 11 of his 14 full seasons in the Sprint Cup series, but the first 13 were all in Fords with Roush Fenway, the team Pro teams seek help from state Associated PressTALLAHASSEE For the past two decades, Florida taxpayers have paid millions to turn the state into a sports mecca. The money has paid for repairs, renovations and construction of stadiums and arenas that are home to professional football, hockey, baseball and basketball teams. The state also has shelled out money to spruce up ballparks used by Major League Baseball teams for spring training. The total so far: close to $300 million since 1994. The list of those getting help and the amount spent by the state could get even larger this year if state legislators and Gov. Rick Scott agree. Bills moving in this years session could help the Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars renovate their stadiums. One bill would help build a soccer stadium, probably in Orlando, and other legislation would pay for improvements to Daytona International Speedway. I think its exciting that the economy is starting to swing back such that we are seeing the opportunities to have new facilities constructed or renovated, said Sen. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs and sponsor of the bill to bring Major League Soccer back to the state. The Tampa Bay Mutiny and Miami Fusion, which played in Fort Lauderdale, both folded after the 2001 season. But already, pressure is building against some of the bills, especially a push for the state to pay $3 million a year for the next 30 years for improvements to Sun Life Stadium, home to the Dolphins and the University of Miami Hurricanes. That measure, which also calls for the use of local hotel bed taxes for the project, has the full backing of the Dolphins and business groups from MiamiDade County. Proponents say a renovated stadium will help Florida secure the Super Bowl in 2016, when the NFL will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the game. And a common argument in favor of all the sports incentives is that they will create spur job creation and help existing hotels and restaurants. But critics, including legislators from Miami-Dade County, who say Dolphins owner Stephen Ross should use his own Tiger Woods cruises to 76th career PGA Tour championship Associated PressDORAL Tiger Woods is hitting his stride on a march to the Masters. Woods had full control of his game Sunday and never let anyone get closer than three shots until he had locked up his 17th World Golf Championship title. With a conservative bogey that didnt matter on the final hole, he closed with a 1-under 71 to win the Cadillac Championship. For the first time in five years, Woods has two wins before the Masters. It was one year ago at Doral that Woods withdrew after 11 holes in the final round because of tightness in his left Achilles tendon, creating uncertainty about his health and whether he could ever get his game back. False alarm. Woods has won five times in the past year, the most of anyone in the world, and he can return to No. 1 with a win at Bay Hill in two weeks. He won by two shots over Steve Stricker, who might want to claim a share of this trophy. Stricker spent 45 minutes on the putting green with Woods on the eve of the tournament, helping him with his posture over putts. Woods made 27 birdies this week, one short of his personal best on the PGA Tour. Thank you to Steve for the putting lesson, Woods said at the trophy presentation. It was one of those weeks where I felt pretty good about how I was playing, made a few putts and got it rolling. Stricker, playing a part-time schedule, picked up his second runner-up finish in just three starts. He closed with a 68, and had no regrets about offering Woods some help. At times you kick yourself, Stricker said with a laugh. Hes a good friend. We talk a lot about putting. Its good to see him playing well. The Masters is a month away, and Woods is sure to be the favorite. Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 player in the world, showed signs of recovering from his rough start to the season. He had a 65 and tied for eighth. Woods won in January at Torrey Pines by four shots. He won for the fourth time at Doral, making this the seventh golf course where he has won at least four times. Graeme McDowell, who started the final round four shots behind, made a birdie on the opening hole, but never got any closer. McDowell had third place to himself until he went for the green on the 18th hole and found the water. He made double bogey, shot 72 and fell into a fourway tie for third that cost him $172,500. Phil Mickelson (71), Sergio Garcia (69) and Adam Scott (64) also tied for third. Woods improved to 40-2 on the PGA Tour when he had the outright lead going into the final round, the last two wins with McDowell at his side. Woods last won while ahead at Bay Hill a year ago. The way Tiger was playing, I was always in chase mode, McDowell said. He was always going to be a tough guy to catch. Fair play to him. He played fantastic golf the last couple of days. Woods finished minus 19 at 269 and earned $1.5 million in winning this World Golf Championship for the seventh time. McIlroys week ended on a happy note. Not only did he finish the tournament, he might have turned the corner with a bogey-free 65. McIlroy opened with a 7iron into 18 feet for eagle, which he called one of the best shots he hit. He shot a 32 on the back nine for a round that surprised him considering how far away he felt when he arrived at Doral. Just goes to show, its not as far away as you think, McIlroy said. Thats been one of my problems. I always think when Im playing bad that its further away than it is. Thats just where I have to stay patient ... and know that if I put in the hard work, that the results will bear fruit. Whether thats sooner or later, it doesnt really matter. McIlroy said he wont add a tournament the next two weeks, returning at the Houston Open before going to the Masters. He is signed up for the member-guest a week from Monday at The Medalist Club, presumably as the guest of former NBA great Michael Jordan. Hes asked me, so depending on what my schedule is and where I have to be ... well see, he said. Scott had the low round of the tournament with eight birdies in his round of 64. Thats what McDowell, Mickelson and Stricker would have needed to have any chance of catching Woods. As he did early in third round, McDowell gave it his best shot, only to have Woods answer on every occasion. McDowell two-putted for birdie on the par-5 opening hole as Woods blasted a shot from a buried lie at the back of the Associated Press Tiger Woods holds the Gene Sarazen Cup on Sunday for winning the Cadillac Championship in Doral.

Gonzalez, the Orioles second-leading winner in 2012, started for the second time this spring and allowed a fourrun second that was made worse by left fielder Nate McLouths error.

Heath Bell pitched a scoreless seventh to get the victory. Jimmy Henderson took the loss. From wire report money to pay for stadium upgrades. Sun Life Stadium is still getting $2 million a year from the state that was used to convert it for baseball use even though the Miami Marlins have since moved out. This is corporate welfare for a billionaire, auto dealer Norman Braman said when he testified against the Dolphins stadium bill last week. The push by professional sports teams comes as legislators question some of the states existing economic development incentives. Some of the deals have gone bust. Sen. Joe Negron, RStuart and the Senate budget chief, says he wont support any new incentives for sports teams unless the state finds a way to pay for them. A Senate panel, for example, this week approved the elimination of a 30-year-old tax break for banks in order to pay for the Dolphins stadium bill. If you want to have new tax incentive program, go find some tax incentive programs that arent working or arent as important, Negron said. Lets not stack one on the other year after year. Its unclear, however, what will happen if any of the bills reach Gov. Rick Scott. Scott has drawn up a list of five principles for local communities and pro sports teams seeking money from Tallahassee. They include a requirement that local governments and team owners provide matching money for any stadium upgrades. The governor also would like each sports deal reevaluated every five years and to put in a payback provision if the deal does not generate as much money as initially promised. And the governor would like a requirement that a team remains in place during the time that any statebacked bonds are being paid off. If an owner moves the team, Scott would like them to pay back the money they had received. Im responsible for the taxpayers of the state, Scott said this week when asked about the Dolphins. Is it a good use of taxpayer money and can we get a return? But the Scott administration has been quick to point out that that it is not mandating that every bill meet all five principles in order to avoid his veto. And the governor wants legislators to commit to $5 million a year from now on to help cities improve ballparks that are used by Major League Baseball teams for spring training. In recent years, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers and Chicago White Sox have moved their camps to Arizona. Fears that more will move persist. Currently, 15 teams train in each state. The state already has spent more than $40 million in the past decade, but the state put a cap on the amount of money and number of cities that could qualify for the funding.

B4 M ONDAY, M ARCH 11, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S COREBOARD green well past the pin and off the green. He had to chip close just to save par. McDowell hit his approach on the second hole to 7 feet and looked as if he might pick up another shot. In what might have been the most significant putt Woods made, he buried an 18-footer for birdie. Thats how it went all weekend. Woods never gave anyone a chance, and he didnt give anyone much hope. His lead was back to four shots, he hit an 8iron to 4 feet on the par-3 fourth hole, and no one seriously challenged him the rest of the way. Mickelson hit a 200-yard shot into the breeze and over the water to a foot for a tap-in birdie on the par-5 eighth to get within four shots with 10 holes to play. He missed far too many short putts, however, making bogey on the ninth and 11th holes to fall too far back to matter. That allowed another easy walk up the 18th hole for Woods to collect another WGC title, another seven-figure check, and offer another reminder that he is closer than ever to getting back to the top of golf. Woods now has won over $24 million in the WGCs alone since the series began in 1999, winning 43 percent of the tournaments. This was his 76th career win on tour, leaving him six short of the record 82 wins by Sam Snead. Brown earns 1st PGA winRIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico Scott Brown made birdie on the 18th hole to go from a one-shot deficit to a one-shot victory in the Puerto Rico Open for his first PGA Tour title. Brown closed with a 2-under 70. He earned a two-year exemption on tour and a spot in the PGA Championship this summer. Fabian Gomez of Argentina had a oneshot lead until he went over the green and into a bunker on his third shot, blasted out to 15 feet and missed the par putt. He closed with a 71 and tied for second with Jordan Spieth. The 19-year-old from Texas had a 67. Brown finished at 20-under 268. Kisner wins Chile Classic SANTIAGO, Chile Kevin Kisner closed with a 4-under 68 to win the Chile Classic and earn his second career title on the Web.com Tour. Kisners 21-under 267 was enough to edge Brice Garnett (68) and Edward Loar (69) by one for the victory.Cadillac Championship Sunday At Trump Doral Golf Club and Resort, Doral, Fla.

Kenseths decision to leave for a seat on Gibbs team was an open secret for much of last season, although the veteran star never really explained his move. The 400-mile race was the first real test for NASCARs new Gen-6 car on the intermediate tracks theyre built to race. Although Hamlin commanded the weeks headlines when his pessimism about the car drew a stiff $25,000 fine from NASCAR, most drivers were curious how the Gen-6 would work in its ideal 1.5-mile environment. Any drivers who still think its too tough to pass in the new car must not have been watching Busch, who made two lengthy charges up to early leads, doing it both before and after a pit-row speeding penalty dropped him back to 18th. Busch charged through the field with impressive ease and took the lead out of a restart with a daredevil move on the apron with 102 laps to go. He went three wide and got underneath Kahne while kicking up dust well below the white line. Kahne set the qualifying speed record on the Vegas track last year, but rain wiped out qualifying this week. He reclaimed the lead and held it until Kenseth nosed ahead out of another restart with 36 laps left when Kahne had trouble getting out of pit row, nearly hitting Stewart. I had an unbelievable car throughout the whole race, Kahne said. We just came out, I think, sixth (out of the pit). Tough to say we would have got by him anyway. I had a great day. I drove so hard every single lap today, and thats just the new Gen-6 car. It was a lot of fun. I love it. The Gen-6 is still a work in progress, however. Several drivers reported various problems with their cars early on, with Clint Bowyer and Stewart both dropping far back in the opening laps. After three days of chilly weather in the desert, warmer temperatures Sunday changed the tracks feel, and teams struggled to adjust to the slickness.Kobalt Tools 400 ResultsSunday At Las Vegas Motor Speedway Las Vegas, Nev.

Associated PressIn comics, the first issue is where the story starts and the legend begins. For readers, a print copy of issue one can be hard to find and expensive to buy. But those rules dont apply to tablets, laptops and smartphones both for comics fans and those curious about characters they may have seen in film or on television. Part of that fascination with superheroes and their growing cachet in popular culture is why Marvel Entertainment, home to the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and the Avengers, among others, made more than 700 first issues available to digital readers starting Sunday for free through the Marvel app and the companys website. After Tuesday, theyll be sold for $1.99 to $3.99 per issue. The titles go from the 1960s Silver Age to contemporary issues with characters including Wasp, Mr. Fantastic, Power Man and Iron Fist, said David Gabriel, senior vice president of sales. This is aimed at attracting fans from all walks of life those who know our characters from the big screen, those who were readers but fell out of the habit and our long-term fans too, he said. We believe that if we get those fans in the door, theyll stay and help grow this industry, with purchases both in comic stores and via digital comic outlets. The publisher went through its catalog of more than 13,000 titles that are already available digitally and plucked out the No. 1 issues with historic ones like Amazing SpiderMan by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko or the Fantastic Four by Lee and Jack Kirby as well as modern titles like Civil War, Joss Whedons Astonishing X-Men and characters and teams like the Uncanny Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, too. We never want fans to feel like they need to have read it all. Of course we want them to want to check out those stories, but the beauty of these No. 1 issues is that each is an entry point, he said. So with a character like Iron Man, you can choose if you want to start with the recent Iron Man series from Kieron Gillen or go back a few years to when Matt Fraction launched Invincible Iron Man or even before that. Birthday There are strong indications that you could establish three important relationships in the year ahead that could benefit you materially and socially. However, these new pals might not mix too well with your old friends. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Exercise your initiative instead of waiting for someone else to make the first move. Your chances for achievement are excellent, if you utilize your talents. Aries (March 21-April 19) If you want to accomplish as much as possible, dont be afraid to request assistance. Youll get no volunteers if nobody knows you need help. Taurus (April 20-May 20) It will take a positive frame of mind to realize any of your hopes and expectations. Dont allow any doubts, even a small one, to get a toehold. Gemini (May 21-June 20) The rate of your accomplishment can be enhanced if you clearly define your goals. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Try to avoid involvements that would inhibit your independence and mobility. Additionally, you need activities that are mentally challenging instead of physically routine. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Normally, youre not overjoyed by changes not of your making, yet youll be able to adapt quite advantageously to todays unexpected developments. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Dont discount your mates ideas about issues of mutual importance, even if they are very different from your own. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You wont be content frittering your time away. Tackling a weighty endeavor will be the only thing that brings you happiness. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Devote some time to an activity or a sport that you enjoy. Taking a break from your everyday routines could refurbish your psyche and attitude. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If at all possible, try to entertain some friends to whom you feel socially obligated. Contact them as early as possible to join you in an impromptu get-together. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can best gratify your restlessness by getting in touch with a friend whom you havent seen much lately. It wont matter where you meet, youll just enjoy each others company. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Your prospects for achieving success continue to look good, especially if you choose to work on an idea youve been contemplating that could make or save you some money.

There are 295 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On March 11, 1888, the Blizzard of also known as the Great White Hurricane, began inundating the northeastern United States, resulting in some 400 deaths. On this date: In 1513, Giovanni de Medici was proclaimed pope, succeeding Julius II; he took the name Leo X. In 1861, the Constitution of the Confederate States of America was adopted by the Confederate Congress in Montgomery, Ala. In 1862, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln removed Gen. George B. McClellan as general-in-chief of the Union armies, leaving him in command of the Army of the Potomac, a post McClellan also ended up losing. In 1942, as Japanese forces continued to advance in the Pacific during World War II, Gen. Douglas MacArthur left the Philippines for Australia. (MacArthur, who subsequently vowed, I shall return, fulfilled that promise more than 2 1/2 years later.) In 1965, the Rev. James J. Reeb, a white minister from Boston, died after being beaten by whites during civil rights disturbances in Selma, Ala. In 1977, more than 130 hostages held in Washington, D.C. by Hanafi Muslims were freed after ambassadors from three Islamic nations joined the negotiations. In 1985, Mikhail S. Gorbachev was chosen to succeed the late Soviet President Konstantin U. Chernenko. In 1993, Janet Reno was unanimously confirmed by the Senate to be attorney general. In 2004, 10 bombs exploded in quick succession across the commuter rail network in Madrid, Spain, killing 191 people and wounding more than 2,000 in an attack linked to al-Qaida-inspired militants. In 2011, a magnitude-9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami struck Japans northeastern coast, killing nearly 20,000 people and severely damaging the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power station. Ten years ago: A U.S. Army helicopter crashed near Fort Drum in upstate New York, killing eleven soldiers. Five years ago: The top U.S. military commander for the Middle East resigned amid speculation about a rift over U.S. policy in Iran. One year ago: Sixteen Afghan villagers mostly women and children were shot dead as they slept, allegedly by U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales. Todays birthdays: Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is 82. ABC News correspondent Sam Donaldson is 79. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is 77. Singer Bobby McFerrin is 63. Singer Nina Hagen is 58. Actor Johnny Knoxville is 42.

Associated Press This image provided by Marvel Entertainment shows the cover of the first issue of Uncanny Avengers. Marvel Entertainment made more than 700 first issues available to digital readers starting Sunday via its app and website. Marvel releasing No. 1s digitally Associated PressWEST PALM BEACH, Fla. A ll the time-stamped rigors of daily journalism are behind her, but the pace of Susan Spencer-Wendels life has only been hastened. She is dying. And dealt a diagnosis she knows she cant beat, the race is on to finish. Her greatest story. Her toughest assignment. Her final deadline. Spencer-Wendels job as a court reporter at The Palm Beach Postmade her a local fixture, reporting on everything from the 2000 recount to Rush Limbaughs legal woes. But what was once a constant rush to be first with her courthouse scoops has become a dash to live her remaining days joyfully, complete a long goodbye to those she loves, and record it all in a book that has drummed huge interest and multimillion-dollar book and movie deals. The clock ticks forward as her body is betrayed by Lou Gehrigs disease and yet so much is left to do. Her life has been full of happiness and she sees no reason her last days should be much different. Life is full of chapters, she says, knowing full well this is her last. S pencer-Wendel was on auto-pilot, locked in a time-worn routine of breaking news at the Postand navigating the daily dance of sibling warfare at home with her three children. That day in 2009 was just like every other, until she undressed for bed and noticed her left hand, scrawny and pale, starkly different from her right. You need to go to the doctor, her husband, John Wendel said. She went through a year of medical appointments and tests and a subsequent year of denial. She sunk into depression and contemplated suicide. When the verdict was finally delivered, there was no surprise. On the way back from the neurologist, she waited outside when her husband stopped in Burger King for a bite. And reflecting on the news she received, she was overcome with a strange feeling of gratitude, for the 44 years she had lived with nary a health problem to speak of, for the career, the family, the travels, for all shed been blessed with. Before long, a roadmap was in place for her remaining time. She would travel the places she wanted to go, surround herself with the people she loved, prepare her family for whats to come. She would live. Joyfully. She went to California to find her birth mother; to New York, where her teenage daughter tried on wedding dresses for a glimpse of a day theyll never share; to Budapest, where she and her husband retraced footsteps of an earlier life; to the Yukon, in a vain attempt to see the Northern Lights with her lifelong best friend; to the Caribbean, to Cyprus, and on and on. Along the way, she wrote stories about two of her trips for the Postthat were so heartbreakingly recorded they caught the eye of HarperCollins, which gave her a $2.3 million deal, and Universal Pictures, which followed with a seven-figure offer of its own. She sprinted to continue her travels and to put them in writing, tapping out the vast majority of her book, Until I Say Goodbye, on her iPhone using just her right thumb. She believes it is the best thing she has ever written, this narrative in which her travels are documented alongside her own decline. Now 46, the woman who rushed to hearings and banged out stories in a flash no longer can walk or swallow a pill. But she offers a manuscript as likely to tug at the funny bone as the tear ducts. I did not want to write a maudlin book, she says in an interview, I wanted people to laugh. It is tinted by her life in journalism, easy-to-digest chapters with simple language, each of them like standalone stories buttressed by engaging starts and even stronger finishes. It was a conscious effort on her part, and that of her coauthor Bret Witter, to focus so intently on each storys ending. And shes quick to see the parallels in her own life, her own search for a powerful ending. As that day draws closer, shes comforted by the way her son Aubrey notices the skys brushstrokes as the sun goes down, how Wesley talks of being a dolphin trainer and Marina dreams of living in New York. She thinks about her husband John and prays he finds love again, that he loses not a moment to guilt. She laughs and reads and writes. She lives the best she can, hoping to impart lessons with her parting choices. I am not gone, she writes. I have today. I have more to give. I know the end is coming but do not despair.S pencer-Wendels body has withered and weakened. She must rely on her husband to do nearly everything for her, from lifting a Parliament to her lips for a drag to folding her hands on her lap and fixing her hair. As the books March 12 release approached, though, her appearance was most notable for the wide smile she wore and the peace she radiates. She relaxes this average Tuesday afternoon, watching Law & Order in her den, enjoying a lick from her new French bulldog and laughing with glee when her sister pays a visit. The book is done, the travels are over, but Spencer-Wendel has found a measure of solace as her life draws to a close. Most ALS patients die within three to five years of diagnosis. She knows her days are few. Though there are new challenges each day, Spencer-Wendel has also found new joy. Eating and swallowing keep getting harder, but shes thrilled by the interest in her book, by the new articles and clippings that keep arriving in her mailbox. Her voice becomes more and more garbled, yet she relishes the time her and her husband share even though it is her illness that forced him to quit his job. She constantly looks on the bright side. I listen often to one of my favorite rock songs, guitarist Eric Johnsons Cliffs of Dover, she recalled by email. And I think Thank God I was not a guitarist! I watch ballet and think Thank God I wasnt a dancer. She tries not to wish for the things she knows she cant have. She tries not to wish for a cure. She is comforted by the windfall her book has brought, the financial freedom it will bring to those around her. But she must prepare her children for whats next, must say everything thats left to be said. Some of it, she hopes has been communicated through her writing and her philosophies and her outlook. To accept what comes. To relish the journey. To see fear as a waste of energy. More than anything else, she wants to leave her family so well situated that they will thrive as much after the day comes as before. That they will live. Joyfully. Florida reporter faces lifes toughest deadline

B6 M ONDAY, M ARCH 11, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. P .G. Wodehouse, a prolific English author who spent a lot of his life on Long Island, had several unhappy experiences with aunts when he was young. He transferred this animosity to his books, including this passage from a Bertie Wooster and Jeeves novel: There came from without the hoof-beats of a galloping relative, and Aunt Dahlia whizzed in. Bridge players whether an aunt or an uncle or another relative need entries for various reasons, including to cash winners, to take finesses and to draw trumps. In this deal, what is the critical entry card that allows South to make four spades after West leads the heart queen? A simple Stayman sequence leads to four spades. (Note that a red-suit lead defeats three no-trump.) South starts with four losers: one in each suit. The careless declarer wins trick one and immediately plays a trump. But then West can win with his ace and lead another heart (East being careful to complete a high-low to show his doubleton). Suddenly South cannot avoid going down one. The more thoughtful declarer realizes that he must eliminate the heart loser before touching trumps. And once the diamond ace has been dislodged, he can discard two hearts from the board. But he must be careful to win the first trick with dummys king. South then calls for the diamond six. East wins and returns the heart five, but declarer takes that with his carefully conserved hand entry, the heart ace, and cashes his two diamond winners, discarding dummys remaining hearts.

Now he is lying about money, saying, Oh, this is set aside to fix the cars. But I know he is frittering it away and wasting his time. He always has excuses about why he cant fix the cars, but if thats the case, why hang on to them? We have more than 10 cars on our lot, and only one is really drivable. Another is a collectible that he doesnt like to get dirty. The rest are wrecks. He acts as if the drivable vehicle belongs to him, but he bought it for me when I graduated college as a replacement for one that was stolen. He drives it every day, and I have to beg to use it. I have lost my mobility and independence, and he doesnt care. I work full time and bring in a decent income. He is retired and watches videos and putters around on the computer. I am angry and tired of his lies. If he really wanted to fix the cars, he would. I am sick of all of the excuses and lies. Why doesnt he do something about these wrecks? Some have been sitting there for 20 years. Frustrated in Northern New York Dear Frustrated: Somewhere in the back of his head, your husband believes he will get around to fixing these cars. He is reluctant to part with them, because it means giving up that little fantasy. The wrecks may be annoying but are not critical to your marriage. Taking the only usable car, however, is a problem. Can you afford another car? If so, get one for yourself. If not, stop begging. Tell your husband the car belongs to you and you intend to use it to get to work and run errands. Maybe it will give him some incentive to deal with the wrecks. Dear Annie : My husband and I love our youngest daughter and have always been proud of her accomplishments. However, now in her late 40s, she has become involved with a religious group that does not celebrate birthdays or holidays. Over Christmas, I sent out some email greetings to my list of friends, and she was included. She called, outraged, and I was forced to admit that I do not believe as she does. Now, I dont hear from her anymore. What can I do? Blue Christmas Dear Blue: Not much. Your daughters lack of tolerance is not unusual for someone who has adopted new religious beliefs. Please try to stay in touch. Send her letters or emails letting her know you miss her and keeping her up to date on family news. Do not mention her religion or yours or the argument you had. We hope, over time, her stringent position will mellow a bit and she will contact you again. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Midwest Cook, who is appalled when other peoples children say they dont like what shes serving. She says her own children will happily eat anything besides sauerkraut and Brussels sprouts. It seems unfair to me to acknowledge her own childrens food biases, but assume that any other childs preferences are a result of being pampered. Manners, like saying no, thank you, can be taught, but some people simply cannot eat the way others do. If Midwest Cook will be regularly entertaining others children, she might ask in advance whether they have things they cant (or wont) eat. This would save her guests, even the children, the awkwardness of offending the hosts by declining food. No Fish, Please Dear No Fish : Unless there are serious allergies, it is unreasonable to expect hosts to cater to individual tastes. A good host will provide enough variety that no one goes hungry. A good guest will find something to nibble on without complaint. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

David Desharnais, Brian Gionta, and Francis Bouillon also scored, and P .K. Subban had three assists. Ryder has seven assists and two goals in seven games since being acquired from Dallas on Feb. 26. Peter Budaj stopped 14 shots for the Canadiens, who won for the fourth time on their five-game trip and earned their ninth road victory of the season. The Canadiens swept the season series from the Panthers. Tomas Kopecky and Shawn Matthias scored for Florida, and Jacob Markstrom made 33 saves. The Panthers have lost six of seven and 13 of 16. Rangers 4, Capitals 1 WASHINGTON About three hours after asking for more respect from NHL officials, Alex Ovechkin was called for two penalties within seconds of each other, leading to a pair of goals that put the New York Rangers ahead for good in a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Brian Boyle and Ryan Callahan took advantage of Ovechkins miscues to give New York a two-goal lead in the second period. Derek Stepan and Brad Richards also scored, and Martin Biron made 28 saves for the Rangers, who have won five of six. Blue Jackets 3, Red Wings 2, SODETROIT Ryan Johansen and Matt Calvert scored in the shootout and the streaking Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 to complete a home-and-home sweep. Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger had goals in regulation, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 20 saves through overtime for Columbus, which has won five straight. The Blue Jackets topped the Red Wings 3-0 in Columbus on Saturday. Jakub Kindl and Johan Franzen scored for Detroit in regulation, and Jimmy Howard stopped 19 shots. Pavel Datsyuk scored the Red Wings only goal in the shootout.Penguins 6, Islanders 1 PITTSBURGH Sidney Crosby tied a career high with five assists, and Chris Kunitz posted his second hat trick of the season in the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-1 rout of the New York Islanders. Crosbys big night boosted his point total to an NHL-leading 45 and helped the Penguins win their fifth straight. James Neal had a goal and three assists, and Pascal Dupuis scored twice for Pittsburgh. Tomas Vokoun made 23 saves. Brian Boyes scored the lone goal for New York, which had a five-game point streak snapped. Evgeni Nabokov stopped just 12 of 17 shots in two periods before getting pulled for the final 20 minutes. Oilers 6, Blackhawks 5 CHICAGO Sam Gagner scored two of Edmonton's four goals in the first period and the Oilers beat Chicago 6-5, sending the Blackhawks to their second consecutive loss after their record-breaking start. Ryan Whitney and Taylor Hall each had a goal and an assist for Edmonton, which snapped a five-game losing streak. Captain Shawn Horcoff also scored as the Oilers went 3 for 4 on the power play. Chicago set an NHL record by recording at least one point in the first 24 games of the season. The streak ended with a 6-2 loss at Colorado on Friday night, and coach Joel Quenneville said he was looking forward to seeing how his team responded. The Blackhawks then got off to their worst start of the season before putting together a spirited rally. Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Sheldon Brookbank and Brent Seabrook scored during a wild second period, and Kane added his team-best 14th of the season to get Chicago within one with 13 minutes left. Devils 3, Jets 2, SO NEWARK, N.J. Patrik Elias scored the only goal of the shootout, and Johan Hedberg stopped all three Winnipeg attempts as the New Jersey Devils posted a 3-2 victory over the Jets. Ryan Carter and Stephen Gionta scored in regulation time for the Devils, who won for only the second time in nine games since top goalie Martin Brodeur was sidelined with a sore back. Hedberg, who was lifted in a 6-3 loss to Carolina on Saturday night, had 23 saves through overtime. He then turned away Blake Wheeler, Evander Kane and Andrew Ladd in the shootout. Elias netted the winner with a backhander on the Devils' last attempt that just got under goalie Ondrej Pavelec, who made 25 saves before the tiebreaker.Flyers 3, Sabres 2PHILADELPHIA Claude Giroux, Simon Gagne and Max Talbot all scored to help the Philadelphia Flyers snap a three-game losing streak and beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2. Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 18 shots for the Flyers (12-14-1), who are still on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff race. They are ahead of the Sabres, who are buried in last place in the Northeast Division and have lost four straight. Brian Flynn and Jochen Hecht scored for Buffalo. With both teams struggling, tempers were short. Buffalo's Mike Weber slugged it out with Wayne Simmonds, and Sabres center Steve Ott threw a punch at Kimmo Timonen.Ducks 4, Blues 2 ANAHEIM, Calif. Corey Perry scored the go-ahead goal with 14:40 left in the third period before adding an empty-netter in the final minute, Jonas Hiller made 14 of his 29 saves in the second period, and the Anaheim Ducks tied a franchise record with their 11th consecutive home victory, 4-2 over the St. Louis Blues. Bobby Ryan tied it early in the third and Andrew Cogliano had a short-handed goal, helping the Ducks improve the NHL's second-best record to 18-3-3. Anaheim, 15-2-2 in its last 19 games, hasn't lost at home since the opener against Vancouver. Patrik Berglund had a power-play goal, Ryan Reaves also scored, and Jaroslav Halak made 17 saves for the Blues, who have lost six straight in Anaheim and 10 of 11 there.Wild 4, Canucks 2ST. PAUL, Minn. Zach Parise had two goals and an assist, Niklas Backstrom had 25 saves and the Minnesota Wild beat Vancouver 4-2 to move into a first-place tie with the Canucks. Jason Zucker and Jared Spurgeon also scored for the Wild, who won their fourth straight home game and beat their Northwest Division rivals for the first time this season. Cory Schneider made 28 saves, and Henrik Sedin and Chris Higgins scored for the Canucks, who fell to 1-3-2 in their past six games. The Wild have struggled with slow starts all season, but needed only 24 seconds to take the lead when Parise kicked off a contentious first period with his 10th goal. Avalanche 3, Sharks 2, OTDENVER Matt Duchene scored his second goal of the night just as time was about to expire in overtime, lifting the Colorado Avalanche over the San Jose Sharks 3-2 to stretch their home winning streak to a season-high five straight games. Duchene, who has three goals in his last two games, wristed a shot past Antti Niemi after taking a pass from P.A. Parenteau. Officials upheld the goal after a replay review showed Duchene got the shot off an instant before time would have run out in the extra period. Patrick Marleau scored San Jose's first goal, the 400th of his career. Logan Couture tied the score 2-all at 16:35 of the third when he followed a turnover by Colorado with a slap shot that got past goalie Semyon Varlamov. Associated Press Washington Capitals center Matt Hendricks, right, knocks over New York Rangers center Derek Stepan on Sunday during the second period in Washington.
