SIDIBE Staff writerThe town of Inglis in Levy County is having elections today. Voters will be electing a mayor and filling three town commission seats. Voters also will cast ballots on several charter amendment issues, including disbanding the towns police force and fire services and handing them to the Levy County Sheriffs Office. If necessary, a runoff will be conducted March 26. Glenda Kirkland is running against incumbent Mayor James Williams. The winner wil serve a two-year term. Three incumbent commissioners are running to fill two two-year commission positions. The incumbents are Tom Brennan, Sally Price and Bob Webb. Two others are in the crowed field: Ann Morin and Stephen Smalldridge. In the race for the one-year commission seat, Charles Pickett and Michael Andrew White will be vying for the post. Besides the effort to shift emergency services to the sheriffs office, voters will be asked to weigh in on the following amendments: Deletion of the towns mandatory garbage collection ordinance and water ordinance. Forbidding the commission from removing or modifing existing elected terms of office. Requiring a vacancy on the commission be filled by the second highest votegetter in the previous election instead of the current system, in which vacancies are filled by a vote of the commission. Requiring a fiveday work week for all municipal offices. Removal of existing assessments and voter approval of future assessments. Last year, a similar effort to disband police and fire services was rejected by voters. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe @chronicleonline.com. Progress partners with EDC P AT F AHERTY Staff writerProgress Energy Florida has partnered with the Citrus County Economic Development Council to bring an economic development expert to Citrus County this week. According to Progress Energy, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, Jeannette Goldsmith, president of J. Goldsmith and Co., will meet with EDC officials to provide strategic input on economic development opportunities in the county. Progress Energy Florida is excited to bring Jeannette Goldsmith to Citrus County, said Alex Glenn, state president for Progress Energy Florida. Jeannettes economic development expertise will be valuable as we work with the EDC to market Citrus County in the future. This is very exciting, I think it Landfill open after Sunday fire MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle The lining along the sloped side of a cell at the Citrus County Central Landfill was damaged by fire early Sunday. Officials s aid there was no foul play and they will be able to repair the damaged portion of the lining. Officials determine blaze not suspicious, though origin unknown C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerMondays sunrise exposed a burned stretch on the western slope of the county landfill and newly graded dirt across its basin as the aftermath of a huge blaze in the early hours of Sunday. Investigators from the state Fire Marshals Office and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) were at the scene. So far, the fire has raised no suspicion, although the cause remains unknown. The state fire marshal was out there today, and we agreed: There was no way you could determine what caused the fire, Citrus County Fire Chief Larry Morabito said on Monday. Just by the nature of whats there. Its a landfill. It generates heat. The idea is for things to decompose and when they decompose, Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A Florida Senate committee voted Monday against expanding Medicaid to roughly 1 million of the states poorest under the federal health overhaul and instead proposed a voucher plan that would require patients to pay premiums and co-pays. This will be the beginning of a transformation of the entire Medicaid system, committee chair Sen. Joe Negron said. My goal is that we will get out of the federal Medicaid system as we know it. Now we cant do that all at once, but we have an opportunity to begin that process.

We dont know what was in that particular area where we presume the fire started. Its buried low and burned high, which is normal. Fire burns up and out. Thats a general rule of nature. After speaking with Morabito and the fire marshal, Assistant County Administrator and Public Works Director Ken Frink concurred the fire occurred naturally. Its their conclusion that there is no wrongdoing, Frink said. The fire started through some sort of spontaneous combustion or some hot coals that were disposed of down there that were smoldering over time. Fire broke out before 1 a.m. at the countys Central Landfill garbage cell at 230 W. Gulf-to-Lake Highway, Lecanto. A number of units were dispatched at 12:21 a.m. and cleared the scene at 4:26 a.m. No injuries were reported. While at least 10 fire crew members sprayed the liner with water, landfill staff spread dirt across the bottom of the cell. Initially, when I talked to the battalion chief, he thought we could be out there for a couple of days, but most of what was burning was the liner for the landfill, Morabito said. There was a small area inside the landfill where the trash was that was burning, and that was controlled by the use of dirt to cover it over. This type of fire posed an unusual risk to firefighters. The slope of the pit is at a 45-degree angle, so there is a challenge there, Morabito said. Although it didnt happen here, one of the safety concerns depending on how long the fire had been burning is that there could have been cavities in the trash where somebody could have stepped on it and it could have fallen in. We didnt have that here because the fire never got that large. But that is a safety concern. By the landfills very nature, no one can know what combustible material was down below. It could have been oily rags that combusted, Morabito said. It could have been anything. Its a landfill. We dont know what goes in there. The state fire marshal deployed a hydrocarbonsniffing dog, but it did not alert to an accelerant. Could somebody have started that fire? Morabito was asked. Its a possibility, but not a probability. Landfill fires are not uncommon, Morabito said. They just dont happen every day. But they are widespread across the United States. According to statistics from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), each year, an average of 8,300 landfill fires cause up to $8 million in property loss, but few casualties result from these fires. This is the first one Im aware of out there, Morabito said. And talking to Casey Stephens (Solid Waste Management director), this is the first one he remembers down in the pit. The fire at the landfill seemed to have occurred through natural combustion, according to observers. There is nothing suspicious that we saw in it, Morabito said. Based on wind conditions, the wind was out of the east. This was on the west bank of the pit. When we arrived, the fire hadnt made it to the top yet. For somebody to stand at the top and light it we dont believe that happened. Frink said the county was working with FDEP to determine the type of repair necessary and to establish a better cost estimate than the ballpark sum of $500,000 given in the fire report. The county landfill is open for business as usual. Were working a different part of the landfill right now, Frink said. The fire occurred in a 1acre area called Phase 3 of the landfill. Its probably 100 feet wide by the length of the landfill along that slope, said Frink, describing the burned area. Id say 100 by 300. The county has filed paperwork for its insurance claim and is planning the repair work. We will remove the part that was burned and replace it, Frink said. Basically, you weld it to the existing liner. We have procedures in place on how to do that, although its not usually such a big patch. The leachate the fluid that drains from the trash is under control. The liner that was burned was above where the trash is, Frink explained. A second liner is still collecting the leachate below the trash. The control panel for the pumps was part of what was burned up. Thats going to be one of our first fixes, to get the pumps up and running. But there is absolutely no cause for alarm for accidental discharge. Landfill workers seal the landfill cell at the end of every working day by covering it with a layer of dirt topped with a sprayed layer of diluted latex paint to prevent oxygen from feeding potential underground combustion areas. Also for safety, the landfill liner is several layers thick, with different types of materials in the layers.

LANDFILL Continued from Page A1 MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle A fire Sunday at the county landfill was determined not to be suspicious, but the cause is unknown, said officials. is a great opportunity to work together on economic development initiatives, a very good thing for our county, said Joe Meek, EDC president and county commissioner. Goldsmith will come because of Duke. We are going to take inventory of the available commercial sites we have and other assets, identify our target industries, induce businesses to our open sites and diversify the economy. The EDC has been working with Dukes economic development team since the merger with Progress Energy. We have met numerous times on different initiatives they are funding, Meek said. They will work to recruit industry into our community using data by Goldsmith. Goldsmiths background is concentrated in sitelocation consulting and site evaluation/certification efforts. Her experience in site-location consulting includes projects in both the manufacturing (specifically aerospace, advanced materials, and energy sectors) and office sectors. Her responsibilities have included project alignment, site and community evaluations and incentive negotiations. She is to meet with economic development officials today and Wednesday and make a presentation following the EDC meeting Thursday morning. This is going to help a lot, said Don Taylor, the incoming executive director of EDC. In addition to the utilitys commitment with the EDC, the new Citrus County Community Working Group will provide the company and community leaders a forum to share information and discuss challenges and opportunities in the community. At its first two meetings in February and March, the group began to consider issues and priorities for Citrus County and the surrounding communities. According to Progress Energy, the Community Working Group will meet for the next eight to 12 months to develop specific strategies and recommendations the company and area stakeholders can initiate to improve the quality of life in the region. The company said more information will be shared as the initiatives are developed. It pledged to continue to support the county through traditional grants, its employee volunteer program and other initiatives. EDC Continued from Page A1 is resigning at the end of the school year to return to teaching, a move he said is necessary to maintain his health. I need to do this for my family and my daughter, he said in an interview. For my own health reasons, I need to take a step back. McCoy, 47, worked as a physical education teacher at Rock Crusher Elementary for 10 years, starting when the school doors were first opened. He was promoted to assistant principal, and then moved to principal positions at CRPS and then CRMS. McCoy became principal at Crystal River High in 2009. Since his time at the helm, the school underwent a $35 million renovation that gave the campus an entirely different look. It serves about 1,270 students. This is probably the hardest decision Ive ever made, he said. Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel said the demands on a high school principal are significant. Its long hours, very stressful. Everything is massive at the high school level, she said. You have to really want to be a high school principal. You have to have a passion. McCoy acknowledged the job takes its toll. This place never sleeps, he said. Himmel said she doesnt know what school McCoy will land at next fall. She said openings for the fall routinely open up in the spring as teachers resign or retire. Himmel said she has no one in mind for McCoys replacement and will probably post the position both internally and outside the school district. Theres never a huge line, she said, to be a high school principal. McCOY Continued from Page A1 Jeannette Goldsmith

TallahasseePanel considering death-penalty change Legislation is being debated in the Senate that would require a jury to be unanimous to recommend the death penalty. The Senates Criminal Justice committee discussed the bill (SB 148) but ran out of time to vote. Thirty-three states impose the death penalty. Only Florida and Alabama do not require a unanimous vote of the jury. From staff and wire reports Page A3 TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Suspected robber shot by elderly man OCALA Authorities said a suspected robber was critically wounded when he confronted an armed elderly man. The 81-year-old told deputies his attacker, 28-year-old Lonnie L. Hollingsworth Jr., had been following him for about 20 minutes Sunday night. When the old man parked his truck in a residential neighborhood, Hollingsworth told the man, Give me everything you got. Authorities said the old man shot Hollingsworth in the abdomen with a .38-caliber revolver. Hollingsworth was hospitalized in critical condition. From wire reports Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A bill that would increase penalties for lying to law enforcement was passed by a Florida Senate panel on Monday in a law closely resembling Caylees Law. The Criminal Justice committee passed the measure (SB 400) 6-0. The legislation was sponsored by Sen. Charlie Dean. It increases the penalty for the second and all subsequent offenses of giving false information to law enforcement about a crime. The bill raises the penalty to a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years. First offenses remain first-degree misdemeanors. Additional offenses should deserve increased penalties, said Sen. Thad Altman, a Viera Republican on the committee. When you have repeat offenders, you have to ratchet up the consequences. The bills standards of evidence include: The false information is in an audio recording; Another person was present and heard the information; or The accused person wrote down the information. Caylees Law addresses false information in a missing person investigation with intent to mislead or impede. The changes were inspired by 2-year-old Caylee Anthonys death. Caylees mother Casey Anthony was acquitted of murdering the girl, who wasnt reported missing until 31 days after she vanished in 2008. After she disappeared, Anthony told investigators that a babysitter had kidnapped her daughter. She also said she worked at Universal Studios, that she had told co-workers about Caylees disappearance and that she had recently received a telephone call from her daughter. All of those statements were lies and were used to convict her on misdemeanor charges. An appellate court later reversed two of the four convictions, saying they constituted double jeopardy. Charles Dean sponsored legislation. Dean bill gets thumbs-up in committee Measure would further penalize lying to law enforcement in certain circumstances P AT F AHERTY Staff writerC over those tattoos, have a firm handshake and target your rsum were among many tips job-seekers heard at a workshop last week. The Land That Job forum March 8 was a combined effort by the United Way of Citrus County, Chamber of Commerce, Workforce Connection, College of Central Florida and the Economic Development Council. This is an opportunity to get real-world feedback from people who hire in Citrus County, said Amy Meek, United Way CEO. The forum included Workforce professionals and volunteers from businesses and government. Experts in a variety of fields shared job-search advice and provided participants a chance to hone interview skills. Participants skewed female, but were a variety of ages with various reasons for unemployment. Jerry Flanders with Workforce Connection emphasized that old ways of getting a job are not as useful in todays economy. He encouraged targeting resumes for specific job openings. Develop strategies for being able to market yourself in ways that increase the likelihood of getting noticed, he said. Flanders also discussed overcoming the challenge of being out of work for a while and stressed the importance of being work-ready. John Siefert, EDC director emeritus, talked about preparing for an interview, making an impression and being knowledgeable about a potential employer. Youre trying to make an impression, he said. Always overdress for the occasion think before you speak. Handle logistics early; dress, get directions, be ready ahead of time, urged Marie M. Straight, SunTrust Bank retail manager. Be aware of body language, anticipate likely questions. She suggested they develop a compelling story and avoid appearing desperate. You need to be cool, calm and confident, she said. Where are the Jobs Hiding? was the topic of discussion for Patricia Tennant Sokol of Workforce Connection. She told participants to enlarge the radius of their job search and cited the importance of networking and referrals. She told attendees to consider electronic job searches, placement specialists, staffing firms and job fair events. Sokol reiterated the importance of a targeted rsum and concluded, Never lie on your rsum; there are no little lies.

P AT F AHERTY Staff writerThe Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County will consider reaching out to include other businesses and organizations with similar interests. At Mondays meeting, Citrus County Extension Service Director Joan Bradshaw brought up the idea of adding to the organization and getting more information out to others. This will be a good opportunity for us take a look at meetings and what people might like to add, she said. Maybe exchange some information about the businesses we have. She will put together a draft needs assessment for the April 8 meeting. Her idea was reinforced by the next topic: the decline of bees and the need to get beekeepers involved. When we started, we wanted to be all agriculture-inclusive, Larry Rooks said. It is one of the industries in our county we can pull in. We really want to be all-inclusive. He also cited the seafood industry as a potential participant and mentioned the possibility of returning to hosting quarterly events. He said there was a significant loss last year by the bee industry, a vital part of agriculture. Theres a combination of things affecting bee decline, blueberry grower Bill Scheiterle said. The bees just dont make it back to the hive. Eighty percent of your food has to be pollinated by bees, he said. Blueberries, for example, have a 10-day window for the flowers to be pollinated. He explained bumblebees, which are native, do most of the work. Crops are also pollinated by wasps and wind. Bradshaw will seek to connect with beekeepers. The alliance will team up with the Citrus County Cattlemens Association to host a booth at the upcoming Citrus County Fair. The fair runs March 25 to 30, though heifers will be shown on Sunday, March 24. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

Comet posing for photo op near crescent moon Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL Nows your chance to see the comet that passed within 100 million miles of Earth last week. Twilight on Tuesday will provide the best photo op for the comet called PanSTARRS. It will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere just above the western horizon right next to a crescent moon. California astronomer Tony Phillips said the glare of the setting sun may make it difficult to see the comet with the naked eye. But he encourages casual skygazers to give it a shot. The moon will provide an easy point of reference. All by itself, the slender moon will be superbeautiful. If you can see a comet right beside it ... what a bonus! he wrote in an email from his home and observatory in the Sierra Nevada. Remember your binoculars, but be certain not to point them at the setting sun, he warned. ON THE NET For the Record reports are archived online at www. chronicleonline.com. Man accused of elder abuse A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerAn Inverness man is in custody, accused of attacking an 83-year-old woman and dragging her by the hair, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Harold Leland Haggard, 60, is facing one count of aggravated battery on a person more than 65 years of age or older. No bond was allowed. A witness told investigators the woman came knocking on his door and scratching on windows Sunday night and told him she had been assaulted by Haggard. According to Haggards arrest report, he grabbed the woman by the hair and dragged her on her back and knees, causing abrasions on her knees and lower back. Investigators found the woman battered, bruised and disheveled. Haggard initially feigned ignorance, telling investigators nothing happened, but then offered that the woman was questioning him. When quizzed about the excessive amount of fresh blood on his shirt, Haggard reportedly claimed he reinjured an old cut on his arm. He was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. The woman was transported Citrus Memorial hospital.

Negron wants the state to create a basic health insurance plan for the expanded Medicaid population and require recipients to pay a sliding scale premium based on their income. He suggested using Florida Healthy Kids, a managed care program that provides health insurance to low-income children, as the vehicle for delivering the new system. Some lawmakers, including Republican Sen. Aaron Bean of Fernandina Beach, also suggested using state funds to help patients pay those premiums. Could we ante up our own money to expand coverage, but under our terms, without creating the entitlement program that we cant or at least weve shown that we can never turn away or scale back? Bean asked. The Senate committees rejection comes a week after a House panel also voted against Medicaid expansion, putting the GOP-controlled Legislature at odds with Gov. Rick Scott. Scott wants to expand Medicaid for three years or as long as the federal government pays 100 percent of the bill, calling it a compassionate and common sense choice. The feds are slated to pay 90 percent after the three years. In a prepared statement shortly after the Senate vote, Scott appeared willing to consider alternatives proposed by lawmakers: I am confident that the Legislature will do the right thing and find a way to protect taxpayers and the uninsured in our state while the new health care law provides 100 percent federal funding. Negrons proposal could save about $127 million a year compared to expansion of traditional Medicaid. He said Florida Healthy Kids is a respected program statewide that lives within its budgets, has plenty of doctor participation and is required to spend a certain amount of money on patient care to prevent administrative costs from ballooning. Its not clear whether Negrons plan would win federal approval. States can charge co-pays and still get 100 percent reimbursement from the feds, but premiums are more complicated. Lawmakers in both chambers have repeatedly expressed concerns that Medicaid is a broken system. Many fear the federal government will back out of its promise to pay, leaving the state on the hook for billions. The straight party line vote angered some Democrats who felt they werent given time to consider alternative plans, including Negrons, which was presented at the last minute after weeks of hearings. We shouldnt force the Floridians who dont have adequate access health care to bear the brunt of our procrastination, said Sen. Chris Smith, DOakland Park. If Florida expands Medicaid, state economists project the state would draw down more than $51 billion over the next decade and have to spend much less: about $5.2 billion. The federal government has agreed to pay for Medicaid expansion in its entirety for the first three years and cover 90 percent after that. Thats much more generous than the 50 percent match the state receives now to cover its current Medicaid population. Despite Mondays Senate vote against traditional Medicaid expansion, several Democrats said the new proposal will still allow the state to receive billions of federal dollars and extend coverage to 1 million Floridians. A rose, by any other name, is still a rose, said Sen. Audrey Gibson of Jacksonville. This move is long overdue and one the House would be wise to emulate. The Medicaid expansion debate comes a month after Scott won a huge victory when federal health officials signaled they would likely grant permission for the state to move its entire Medicaid population into managed care as long as it fixed issues involving oversight and transparency. The state spends about $21 billion a year on Medicaid to cover roughly 3 million residents about half of them children. Glenn Barber, 82INVERNESS Glenn E.

A tree fungus known as laurel wilt is spreading rapidly across parts of central Florida, killing hundreds of redbay trees in its wake. The fungus carried by ambrosia beetles attacks very quickly, killing the trees almost overnight, according to the Daytona Beach NewsJournal Leaves then hang on the dead trees for weeks or months. Trees are dying everywhere, said Don Spence, a certified arborist who owns Native Florida Landscapes in Ormond Beach. The infestation has spread across Volusia and Flagler counties and has been spotted in the Ocala National Forest and up and down the St. Johns River. The beetles drill into redbay trees and the female beetles inoculate the tree with rapidly multiplying fungi, according to Farley Palmer, who owns Palmer Biological Services in New Smyrna Beach. He said the bugs feed on fungus, which block the trees capillaries and prevent water from getting into the limbs, branches and leaves. The leaves quickly change from green to brown. Specialists said the only hope is for trees to be treated early enough with a fungicide that protects the roots and keeps the fungus from taking hold. Palmer said that can cost between $100 and $300 per tree. Federal officials believe the fungus and beetles came from Georgia in 2002, probably from importing shipping materials. It first appeared in Duval County in 2005 and spread to Volusia County in 2008. Florida Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Denise Feiber said the fungus is in 41 Florida counties. She said 98 percent of the native redbay trees were destroyed in some north Florida counties within two years of the beetles arrival. Officials said the beetles also attack other trees, including swamp bay, sassafras and avocado. Palmer and other experts say its key for people to understand what kinds of trees they have in their yards. Many people mistake redbay trees for oak trees, he said. Making that connection between the species they have and the disease is the real key to saving these trees, Palmer said. Redbays fall prey to fatal fungus Specialists said the only hope is for trees to be treated early enough with a fungicide that protects the roots and keeps the fungus from taking hold. That can cost between $100 and $300 per tree. MEDICAID Continued from Page A1 Sen. Joe Negron voted against expanding Medicaid. Gov. Rick Scott willing to consider alternatives.

Interest rates Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market crept higher Monday, pushing the Dow Jones industrial average to its seventh straight day of gains. Boeing was the Dows top stock, surging 2 percent. A Boeing executive reportedly said hes confident the aircraft maker has figured out a fix for the battery problems that have grounded the 787 Dreamliner. The last time the Dow rose for seven consecutive days was March 2012. The latest streak began last Tuesday, when the bluechip index blew past its all-time high, then kept climbing to end the week up 2 percent. On Monday, the Dow rose 50.22 points to end the day at 14,447.29, an increase of 0.3 percent. The Standard & Poors 500 index edged up 5.04 points, also 0.3 percent, to close at 1,556.22. The index, the most popular market measure for investment funds, is nine points shy of its all-time closing high reached in October 2007. The Nasdaq composite added 8.51 points to 3,252.87. The S&P 500 gains were broad, though slight. Nine of the 10 industry groups in the S&P 500 rose, led by financial companies. Thats a sign many investors believe the market and economy are on solid footing, said Quincy Krosby, market strategist at Prudential Financial. When the economy picks up, financial firms and companies in other cyclical industries tend to benefit more than others. For the year, the Dow is up 10 percent and the S&P 500 up 9 percent. The stock markets fast start has prompted some analysts to worry that the rally could quickly fizzle out. Although recent economic reports have painted a better picture, the U.S. economy is still growing slowly. It expanded at an annual rate of 0.1 percent in the final three months of 2012. And Europe remains in a recession. There were no major economic reports to drive trading on Monday. Later in the week, the government will release figures for the federal budget in February, as well as reports on consumer prices and industrial production On Friday, the Labor Department said that U.S. employers added 236,000 workers to their payrolls in February, pushing the unemployment rate down to 7.7 percent, the lowest since December 2008. Dow posts seventh solid day of gains Business BRIEFS Recovery slow as Japan marks 2 years since tsunami TOKYO Amid growing dissatisfaction with the slow pace of recovery, Japan marked the second anniversary Monday of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that left nearly 19,000 people dead or missing and has displaced more than 300,000. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that the government intends to make visible reconstruction progress and accelerate resettlement of those left homeless by streamlining legal and administrative procedures many blame for the delays. At observances in Tokyo and in still-barren towns along the northeastern coast, those gathered bowed their heads in a moment of silence marking the moment, at 2:46 p.m. on March 11, 2011, when the magnitude-9.0 earthquake the strongest recorded in Japans history struck off the coast.EU bans cosmetics with animal-tested ingredientsBRUSSELS The European Union banned the sale of new cosmetic products containing ingredients tested on animals Monday. Animal rights groups were quick to cheer the measure, but Cosmetics Europe, a trade body representing the EUs $93 billion industry, said the ban acts as a brake on innovation. While the industrys rabbits, mice or guinea pigs used in testing will now be spared, consumers are unlikely to notice immediate changes because products containing ingredients that were tested on animals before the ban can remain on the shelves. Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba names new CEO BEIJING Alibaba Group, one of the worlds biggest e-commerce companies, said Monday its executive vice president will succeed founder Jack Ma as chief executive. Ma, 48, announced in January he was stepping down as CEO to make way for younger leaders. He stayed on as chairman. Jonathan Lu Zhaoxi, a 13-year veteran of the company, will take over in May as CEO, said the company, based in the eastern city of Hangzhou. Icahn signs confidentiality agreement with DellBillionaire investor Carl Icahn, who is fighting Dell Inc. founder Michael Dells plan to take the struggling company private, has entered a confidentiality agreement that would give him access to the computer makers financial records. Michael Dell, who is also Dells CEO, is planning a $24.4 billion buyout that would make the Round Rock, Texas, company a privately-owned business. But Icahn and other investors say the price of $13.65 per share is too low. Icahns company, Icahn Enterprises, has said it holds a substantial stake in the company. Icahn wants the company to pay a special dividend of $9 per share, financed with existing cash and new debt, if shareholders reject the buyout offer.New BlackBerry coming to the US public on March 22TORONTO BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion will begin selling its new touchscreen smartphone to U.S. consumers with AT&T on March 22. The release will come several weeks after RIM launched the muchdelayed devices elsewhere. AT&T said Monday that the Z10 will be available for $199.99 with a two-year contract. Sales of the device began in the U.K. and Canada shortly after RIM unveiled the phone in late January. Rival U.S. carrier T-Mobile said it expects to deliver the new BlackBerry for some corporate customers as soon as the end of this week, though it did not provide details on the availability for non-business customers. Halliburton exec testifies at Gulf spill trial NEW ORLEANS An executive from the company that was BPs cement contractor on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig testified Monday that he learned of some irregularities in tests that the contractors employees performed after the massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Timothy Probert, a Halliburton president who served as the companys chief safety officer at the time of the spill, didnt specify the nature of those irregularities during his testimony at a trial designed to assign fault to the companies involved in the deadly disaster. However, an attorney for rig owner Transocean Ltd. asked Probert if he was angry when he learned in 2012 that evidence had been destroyed. Yes, Probert said. Obviously, it doesnt make you feel happy.IBM pays CEO $15.4M in her first year on the job ARMONK, N.Y. IBM awarded CEO Virginia Rometty a compensation package valued at $15.4 million during her first year running one of the worlds biggest technology companies. APs calculation counts salary, bonuses, perks and stock and options awarded to the executive during the year. It doesnt include changes in the present value of pension benefits, and sometimes differs from the totals that companies list in their proxy statements filed with regulators. As with most CEOs, most of Romettys 2012 pay consisted of long-term stock awards that could wind up being worth more or less than the $9.3 million listed in the initial disclosures. Kodak loss up 80 percent in 2012 as sales fall ROCHESTER, N.Y. Eastman Kodak Co., the photography pioneer thats under bankruptcy protection, on Monday said its loss nearly doubled last year due to the cost of converting itself into a slimmer company. The Rochester, N.Y., company said it lost $1.38 billion in 2012, 80 percent more than the loss of $764 million the year before. Excluding reorganization costs, the latest loss would have been $308 million, Kodak said. Revenue was $4.11 billion, a 20 percent decline from the previous year. Kodak, once the dominant supplier of photographic materials in the U.S., failed to transition gracefully to the world of digital imaging. Shrinking sales pushed it into bankruptcy in January 2012. It hopes to emerge from court protection this summer.Yums China sales drop less than expected in 1Q NEW YORK Yum Brands Inc. said Monday that its sales in China slid 20 percent in January and February following a food scare over its chicken suppliers. But the drop wasnt as bad as feared. The owner of KFC and Taco Bell had forecast a 25 percent decline for the two months for sales at restaurants open at least a year. It also warned at the time that its overall profit for 2013 would drop as a result of the controversy, snapping an 11-year streak of doubledigit profit growth. With 5,300 restaurants in the country, Louisville, Ky.-based Yum is the biggest Western fast-food operator in China. KFC accounts for most the locations. Yums sales figure ticked up 2 percent in February, helped by the timing of Chinese New Year.

Mexico moves against TV, telephone tycoonsMEXICO CITY President Enrique Pena Nieto on Monday proposed an overhaul of the weak and chaotic regulations that have allowed the worlds richest man and the largest Spanish-language media empire to exert near-total control of Mexicos lucrative telephone and television markets. The reforms, if approved, would give Mexico the tools to take on two of the two most influential men in Mexico, multibillionaire telephone tycoon Carlos Slim and Televisa CEO Emilio Azcarraga, independent observers said. The two rivals holds on their respective markets have become widely seen as emblems of regulatory dysfunction. From wire reports

Page A8 TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 No need for new bans I am deeply concerned about attempts to pass new laws aimed at limiting my Second Amendment rights. Focusing on 100 million law-abiding citizens like me who use firearms including modern sporting rifles (MSRs) every day for hunting, recreational shooting and home defense, is unproductive and unconstitutional. Lets prosecute those who abuse existing laws instead. MSRs (so-called assault weapons) continue to be vilified in the press. While they may look like military rifles, they function no differently from any other civilian semiautomatic firearm. Semiautomatic technology has been available for decades and is the operating system for most of the firearms in existence today. They fire only one round with each trigger pull. The design for MSRs, developed in 1957, is the ArmaLite Rifle; the term A/R is its abbreviation it does not stand for assault rifle. A comprehensive 2003 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) examined 51 gun-control studies, including the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB). It was unable to show any crime reduction associated with gun control. Another study, commissioned by Congress, found bans were not effective in reducing crime because the banned weapons and magazines were never used in more than a modest fraction of all gun murders. As your constituent, I urge you to make me safer while protecting my constitutional rights. Focus on real crimecontrol measures such as: Ensure that all states submit appropriate court data for individuals adjudicated unfit to possess firearms into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) database. These are not private medical records, but official court documents; therefore they do not infringe on privacy rights, a popular but incorrect argument. Enforce the laws already at our disposal, such as: Use the existing 10 year/ $250,000 perjury penalty associated with Straw Purchasing. Even better, lets make straw purchasing its own offense. Use existing federal laws to prosecute gun-related crimes, ensuring that criminals dont plead down to lesser offenses. Armed robbery should never become robbery because a busy court docket necessitated a plea deal. When Richmond, Va., did this under a program called Project Exile, crime dropped 65 percent. Criminals respond to risk. Promote education to ensure firearms are safely stored away from unauthorized users. These are simple, noncontroversial, concrete steps we can take today that will not infringe on anyones privacy or constitutional rights. Lets focus on smart, datadriven solutions to get to the root of our crime problems. Wayne Charles Sessa Beverly Hills S tate Sen. Joe Negron is on his third attempt to get a key change added to Floridas landmark Sunshine Law the right of the public to speak before a public board or commission takes official action. If the general public thinks it has that right already, thats because people have been lulled into the comfort zone by decisionmaking boards and commissions through their own local rulemaking. There is no state law or constitutional guarantee of the publics right to speak before a public board or commission votes on a specific matter. Negrons bill, SB 50, and similar legislation in the state House filed by Rep. Ray Rodrigues, HB 23, would add the right into Floridas Sunshine Law, Chapter 286, Florida Statutes, to speak out. Exemptions would prevail for specific meetings as they do now executive sessions where boards meet in the shade and make decisions on pending litigation, for example. And the publics comments, the bill specifies, could be taken at a meeting on the matter other than where the official vote takes place. The bill would authorize a board or commission to adopt reasonable rules to ensure orderly conduct of the meeting. But, a board or commission could not just announce, We arent taking public comment. That lack of the force of law came to a head in the past three years in two state appellate court rulings. In 2010, The First District Court of Appeal upheld the right of the Community Maritime Park Associates Inc., acting on behalf of the city of Pensacola, to deny the public the right to speak at a public meeting regarding a waterfront development. The plaintiffs alleged the Sunshine Laws phrase open to the public gave them that right. The First DCA said no and that the remedy would be a change in law. In 2011, the Fifth District Court of Appeal in Kennedy v. St. Johns River Water Management District affirmed a lower court on the question of a public speaking right. Plaintiffs alleged a violation of the Sunshine Law because the water district board denied them the right to speak before the vote. The appeals court said no, too, because there was no right in the law. Negron filed his first bill for the 2011 session. But that year, his bill and a House companion bill didnt even make it out of their respective committees. In 2012, Negron tried again and got Senate approval of the bill. But, the then-House leadership refused to bring it to the floor for a vote. Negron and Rodrigues are confident of passage this time around. Both bills passed separate committees in their respective chambers last week with unanimous support in each committee. Barbara Petersen, president of the First Amendment Foundation in Tallahassee, is confident, too. House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz are good friends of open government. Former Speaker Dean Cannon was not. That surprised me because his first degree was from the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications where the Sunshine Law had its genesis in 1958 in the Society of Professional Journalists Chapter. That year, then-State Rep. J. Emory Red Cross was a speaker and raised the idea of a sunshine law. Negrons persistence reminds me of Cross. The law finally took effect on July 1, 1967. It was Cross fifth attempt. He filed the first bill in the House in 1959. He was laughed out of the House, said Horance G. Davis Jr., legendary journalism professor and Pulitzer Prize winner. After election to the Senate in 1961, Cross tried again and again in 1963, 1965 and 1967. I interviewed Cross for The St. Augustine Records1998 series on the Sunshine Law. I asked him what he did to change the minds of lawmakers. A federal court order that reapportioned the Legislature made the difference, he said. Before then, the Legislature had equal numbers of lawmakers from rural and urban counties. The pine trees and the cows had been voting for years, Cross said. When they started letting the people vote, the law passed. While confidence abounds in passage, the public needs to voice its support to legislators and Gov. Rick Scott. The ultimate prize, the right in law, rests with Scott. Petersen said, I cant imagine that Gov. Scott would veto a bill that restores a fundamental constitutional right to the people of Florida the right to speak to their elected representatives at a public meeting. I cant either.Margo C.

The apparent callousness of the employee sparked nationwide outrage. However, as the facts and circumstance surrounding the incident have become known, it became clear the situation was not as blackand-white as originally portrayed. Resuscitation for the very old is often futile, and positive outcomes problematic. With brain damage an ever-present risk, one in five resuscitated never resume life as before. Given this risk, the article in the March 2012 Journal of the American Medical Association suggested that CPR for imminently dying patients is likely to harm them without compensatory benefit. Supporting the facilitys handling of the situation, the family of the deceased 87year-old-resident stated she fully understood the facility did not have a trained medical staff and that her wish was to die naturally and without any kind of prolonged intervention. Expressing regret that the media sensationalized the incident, the family said it would not sue or try to profit from the death, calling it a lesson we can learn from. The incident is certainly a lesson we can all learn from. For the residential-care industry, especially independent living facilities that are not regulated by the government, the incident is a wakeup call to clearly define emergency resuscitation policies within the context of legal and moral responsibilities. Furthermore, the policies must be communicated to residents, family members of residents and staff in an understandable manner to ensure end-oflife wishes are compassionately filled. As for end-oflife wishes, every person, particularly the elderly, should determine their wishes and discuss them with loved ones. This not only makes ones wishes known, but eases uncertainty and grief for loved ones. In determining end-of-life wishes, Five Wishes is a proven tool for guiding individual decisions and family discussions. Written in everyday language and easy to use, it has become Americas most popular living will since introduced in 1997. Online since 2011, it is now readily accessible. While triggering our emotions and sparking a firestorm of outrage, the medias coverage of the incident also spurred a useful national discussion that hopefully will serve as a catalyst for introspection about end-of-life decisions by the residential care industry, as well as the families they serve.

Stop the pumping madness With regard to the recent SWFMD approvals and applications for ground water extraction for industrial users in Citrus County, there needs to be a time when enough is enough. Industrial users are able to incorporate alternative water supplies into their operating budget with minimal effect to finished product pricing. I suspect that the industrial corporations would easily pass the added cost onto the consumers to maintain their precious profits. In a recent publication from WateReuse Association Seawater Desalination Costs, Revised January 2012 it states facts about the Tampa Bay water system. Three areas I would like to quote are: In the U.S., for example, Tampa Bay, Fla., has implemented seawater desalination as a droughtproof measure. In particular, and under constant order by the State of Florida and the Southwest Florida Water Management District, this measure was determined to be necessary in order to alleviate well field over-pumping and devastation of wetlands (Southwest Florida Water Management District (www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/) wetland recovery strategy). By some arguable accounts, thousands of acres of wetlands that had virtually dried up over many years began to fill with water, One of the most sensitive and critical aspects of any water project is cost. Membrane desalination has experienced an overall downturn trend in overall costs, and technological advances will continue to bring costs down even further. Additionally, when investigating the costs associated with desalination compared to other supplies, comparable cost estimating practices will tend to level the playing field when all of the costs associated with delivering water are considered. For example, in Tampa, a comprehensive environmental study beginning in 2002 (study commissioned by Tampa Bay Water and administered by PBS&J) revealed that to date there is no indication that the sea water reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination facility concentrate has had an adverse impact on Tampa Bay. Therefore, the costs associated with co-locating with a nearby power plant and the associated mixing and dilution can be reliable when applied to other similar co-located projects. Industrial users need to be required to install desalination systems for their water supply. This will lessen the over pumping of our Citrus County aquifer as the county develops. Leave the ground water for the residents who use it to live, not to profit from. With proper engineering and planning, the cost of water can be expected to be around $3/1000 gallons or $0.003 per gallon or less. Being a resident and property owner in Citrus County, with multiple dried up wetlands, I feel that a possible miniscule increase in price for industrial goods is a small price to pay for the preservation of our waterways, aquifer, and wetlands. Scott Baggerly LifeSource Engineering Crystal River Line up facts first, then make case Harley Lawrence has really outdone himself with the Socialism does not work letter in Sundays paper. His paranoia with socialism has completely removed his ability to think objectively on the subject. You have to wonder if he is retired and on Social Security and Medicare? Does he realize that is a form of socialism? Does he send his Social Security check back each month to protest socialism? Id bet he doesnt. I just dont understand how he could write so many letters if he is still working. Maybe thats it he is selfemployed, making more than $113,700 per year and paying nearly $15,000 per year in Social Security tax. And Medicare tax for the self-employed at 2.9 percent, or $3,297. Harley reported the dreaded CPC has deep and long-standing ties with the socialist movement and (are you ready?) a Marxist agenda. Wikipedia, on the other hand, reported the CPC was founded in 1995 by the Democratic Party in response to Newt Gingrichs Contract with America. To top it off, there has been no socialist party to speak of in Congress in the past 38 years, per an independent fact checker called Thats My Congress. Only one member of Congress today claims to be a Democratic Socialist, and that is Bernie Sanders. Check Wikipedia if you would like an honest history of the Socialist Party in America. You will find it fragmented into small groups totaling less than 9,000 members in the s. Harley makes a point to criticize the social democracies in Europe, saying they are being crushed under the weight of social programs and jump from one financial crisis to the next every month. Has he picked up a paper to see what the U.S. is doing lately? Take a look at how well plain old capitalism is doing in America. As much as I liked President George Bush, I would like to see Harleys itemized list of actions Bush attempted that were blocked by the progressives (sounds fishy). There appear to have been a handful of people in power who honestly wanted to help lowincome Americans buy their own home. I believe George Bush was one of them. The motive of the remainder of the politicians, bankers, mortgage brokers, and lenders was simple greed and a prime example of capitalism without regulation. I have read several books that provide a much better perspective on the whole fiasco. Try Too Big to Fail, All the Devils are Here or Bull by the Horns. I promise youll be much better informed. To help your understanding, look up Angelo Mozilo (CEO of Countrywide Financial) on Wikipedia. You will find a long list of politicians he gave mortgages to at a super-discounted rate (Democrats and Republicans alike). He was cozy with both and thanks, in part, to their legislative largesse, made around $470 million between 2001 and 2006. One more blatant error I found in that letter was there are no success stories from a socialist/Marxist society. Granted, Mao was not a Marxist, but he was certainly a socialist. The Chinese government has brought a nation of 1.3 billion people from near Stone Age to iPads in about 40 years. They are currently out-producing the U.S., and are holding $1.1 trillion in U.S. T-bills, notes and bonds. Why do you think they are so much more successful than the Europeans? They dont allow unions to drive wages and benefits beyond the point of economic viability (my opinion). For that matter, they dont allow unions.R.M. Sprott Crystal River High-paying jobs needed What have our county planners come up with to revitalize this area? Boat ramps, restaurants and gas pumps on the lake. More minimum wage and seasonal jobs. Really? Is this a responsible plan? What we need are real jobs jobs that support people raising families and buying homes. Real jobs that bring in real taxes. Sumter County got the UPS depot. Were getting gas pumps on the lake? Nostalgia? Is nostalgia going to get people off food stamps? Raise them out of poverty or just getting by? Pay for better schools? Do these planners know what the poverty rate is in the county? Or the unemployment, underemployment rate? Guess not. A while back I read that the county commissioners wanted to keep this a bucolic area for retirees. Well, fellas, look around and find a Plan B, your plan aint working for most residents. Gas pumps on the lake, gimme a break. Martha Bowman Floral City Congress should work with Obama Two years ago, Congress and the Obama administration signed on to work together to reach a compromise to avoid drastic cuts in various government programs. Now Congress once again is creating a nonemergency emergency. They have had two years to work on a plan that would be good for the country and have come up empty. Now the posturing in front of TV cameras and the blame game is once again being played out. I guess the members of Congress have forgotten the story of the little boy who cried wolf. The November reelection of President Obama should have been a wake-up call for those who dedicated the past five years to working against everything the president has tried to do. Well, we the people spoke up in November and said we wanted Congress to work with the president for the good of the country...not for the good of their own party affiliations and/or re-election campaign supporters. Members of Congress (regardless of party affiliation) who do not do whats best for the country at this critical time will be signing their own political death warrant. We the people have had enough. We dont believe your emergencies anymore. To us it is just your unwillingness to do the job we sent you to D.C. to accomplish. That job was not to keep fighting with each other but to work together to restore the greatness of our nation. If you are unwilling to do so, come election time we the people will find someone who will.

Judge strikes down soda ban NEW YORK A judge struck down New York Citys pioneering ban on big sugary drinks Monday just hours before it was supposed to take effect, handing a defeat to health-minded Mayor Michael Bloomberg and creating confusion for restaurants that had already ordered smaller cups and changed their menus. State Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling said the 16-ounce limit on sodas and other sweet drinks arbitrarily applies to only some sugary beverages and some places that sell them. The loopholes in this rule effectively defeat the stated purpose of this rule, Tingling wrote.Colo. Senate OKs gun-control billsDENVER A gun control package pushed by Colorado Democrats has cleared the state Senate after a full day of emotional debate. The Senate gave final approval to five bills restricting gun rights, reacting to mass shootings in a Colorado movie theater and a Connecticut elementary school. The bills include a 15round limit on ammunition magazines, expanded background checks, and a ban on gun ownership for people accused of domestic violence crimes. Modest quake shakes CaliforniaINDIAN WELLS, Calif. A modest earthquake left Southern California with the jitters Monday but no serious damage as the temblor caused swaying and rolling from the desert to the coast, sending children scrambling under their desks and office workers running for the door. The 9:55 a.m. quake had an estimated magnitude of 4.7, said Nick Scheckel, seismic analyst at the California Institute of Technologys seismological laboratory in Pasadena. The epicenter was about a dozen miles from the Riverside County desert community of Anza, about 100 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Owner: SUV in crash was stolen WARREN, Ohio Investigators Monday tried to piece together what eight teenagers crammed into an allegedly stolen SUV were up to before the vehicle flipped over into a pond, killing six of them. Authorities gave few details on where the group of friends had been and why they were out around daybreak Sunday, speeding down a two-lane road. On Monday, the SUVs owner met with police and filed a stolen-car report; police said none of the teens were related to the owner or had asked to use the vehicle.

Last anti-Chavez TV station sold CARACAS, Venezuela The last remaining television station critical of Venezuelas government is being sold to an insurance company owner who is apparently friendly with the ruling socialists, its owners announced Monday, following an unrelenting official campaign to financially strangle the broadcaster through regulatory pressure. The announcement, which civil liberties advocates called a crushing blow to press freedom, comes a month ahead of crucial elections to replace Hugo Chavez as the opposition accuses the late presidents political heirs of employing multiple violations of the constitution to gain an unfair advantage. Report: UK police covered up abuseLONDON An independent report into how British police handled allegations against disgraced late BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile said Tuesday that police held records that connected him to sexual abuse as early as 1964, but failed to carry out an investigation. Once one of Britains most popular entertainers, Saviles reputation took a dive after his death in 2011 at age 84, when hundreds of witnesses and victims came forward accusing him of sexual abuse. Police have since described the television and radio presenter as a serial sexual predator who used his fame to target young victims across Britain. Dominican Republic eyes truth panelSANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic A new campaign seeks to establish a Truth Commission in the Dominican Republic to delve into the brutal years of dictator Rafael Trujillo.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressVATICAN CITY Cardinals enter the Sistine Chapel on Tuesday to elect the next pope amid more upheaval and uncertainty than the Catholic Church has seen in decades: Theres no front-runner, no indication how long voting will last and no sense that a single man has what it takes to fix the churchs many problems. On the eve of the vote, cardinals offered wildly different assessments of what theyre looking for in a pope and how close they are to a decision. It was evidence that Benedict XVIs surprise resignation has continued to destabilize the church leadership and his final appeal for unity may go unheeded, at least in the early rounds of voting. Still, the buzz in the papal stakes swirled around Cardinal Angelo Scola, an Italian seen as favored by cardinals hoping to shake up the powerful Vatican bureaucracy, and Brazilian Cardinal Odilo Scherer, a favorite of Vatican-based insiders intent on preserving the status quo. Cardinals held their final closed-door debate Monday over whether the church needs more of a manager to clean up the Vaticans bureaucratic mess or a pastor to inspire the 1.2 billion faithful in times of crisis. The fact that not everyone got a chance to speak was a clear indication that theres still unfinished business going into the first round of voting. This is a great historical moment, but we have got to do it properly, and I think thats why there isnt a real rush to get into things, Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier from South Africa said as he left the session Monday. None of that has prevented a storm of chatter over whos ahead in the race. Scola is affable and Italian, but not from the Italian-centric Vatican bureaucracy called the Curia. That gives him clout with those seeking to reform the nerve center of the Catholic Church that has been discredited by revelations of leaks and complaints from cardinals in the field that Rome is inefficient and unresponsive to their needs. Scherer seems to be favored by Latin Americans and the Curia. The Brazilian has a solid handle on the Vaticans finances, sitting on the governing commission of the Vatican bank, the Institute for Religious Works, as well as the Holy Sees main budget committee. Cardinals prepare to pick pope Officials will begin talks today; no hints of whats in store Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea A staterun newspaper in North Korea said Monday the communist country had carried out a threat to cancel the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War, following days of increased tensions over its latest nuclear test. A U.N. spokesman said later in the day, however, that North Korea cannot unilaterally dissolve the armistice. North Korea also followed through on another promise: It shut down a Red Cross hotline that the North and South Korea used for general communication and to discuss aid shipments and separated families reunions. Enraged over the Souths current joint military drills with the United States and last weeks U.N. sanctions imposed on Pyongyang for its Feb. 12 nuclear test, North Korea has piled threat on top of threat, including a vow to launch a nuclear strike on the United States. Seoul has responded with tough talk of its own and has placed its troops on high alert. Tensions on the divided peninsula have reached their highest level since North Korea rained artillery shells on a South Korean island in 2010. The North Korean government made no formal announcement on its repeated threats to scrap the 60-year-old armistice, but the countrys main newspaper,Rodong Sinmun, reported the armistice was nullified Monday as Pyongyang had said it would be. The North has threatened to nullify the armistice several times before, and in 1996 it sent hundreds of armed troops into a border village. The troops later withdrew. Despite the North Korean report, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said the armistice is still valid and still in force because the armistice agreement had been adopted by the U.N. General Assembly and neither North Korea nor South Korea could dissolve it unilaterally. The terms of the armistice agreement do not allow either side unilaterally to free themselves from it, said Nesirky, the spokesman for U.N. SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon. Ban urged North Korea to continue to respect the terms of the armistice agreement as it was approved by the General Assembly, Nesirky said, adding that officials at U.N. headquarters in New York were unaware of any operational changes on the ground on the Korean peninsula. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the U.S. was certainly concerned by North Koreas bellicose rhetoric. And the threats that they have been making follow a pattern designed to raise tension and intimidate others. He added that Pyongyang will achieve nothing by threats or provocation, which will only further isolate North Korea and undermine international efforts to ensure peace and stability in northeast Asia.

North Korea claims its canceling 1953 armistice Associated PressMAIDAN SHAHR, Afghanistan An Afghan policeman gunned down two U.S. special forces members on Monday in Wardak province, less than 24 hours after President Hamid Karzais deadline expired for them to leave the area where residents have grown increasingly hostile toward the Americans. Despite Karzais orders, the American special operations forces remain in the province where dozens of villagers accuse them and their Afghan partners of intimidation through unprovoked beatings, mass arrests and forced detentions. The shootout, which also killed two Afghan policemen, only deepens the distrust. The U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan said it has found no evidence to support the claims of abuse. But infuriated by the villagers allegations, Karzai two weeks ago ordered U.S. special operations forces to withdraw by midnight Sunday from Wardak province, 27 miles south of the capital, Kabul. Most international forces are scheduled to withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of 2014. Wardak, like the rest of the country, is slated to be eventually handed over to Afghan forces, but U.S. Gen. Joseph Dunford, the top commander of U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan, indicated on Sunday that the troops were not leaving Wardak province just yet. Wardak has a stubborn insurgency on the doorstep of the capital Kabul and its location has led some U.S. military officials to warn that a premature withdrawal of U.S. special operations forces would open a six-lane highway into Kabul for the Taliban. Friction rising in Afghanistan Associated Press Afghan villagers show a paper Sunday with pictures of relatives held in U.S. special forces custody in Maidan Shahr, Wardak province, Afghanistan.

Flooded free agent market, no superstars Associated PressT he secret meetings and late-night flights on private jets might still be a part of this years NFL marketplace. Ah, but for glam, glitz and pure megawattage, no one will come close to reprising the free-agency frenzy that caught the countrys attention last year when Peyton Manning was wooed and wowed from coast to coast before finally settling on Denver. Most of the big names in this years class of free agents arent even BIG names. Theyre not even BIG stars. Certainly not in Mannings class. Sure, Ed Reed is coming off helping a Super Bowl season with Baltimore, Wes Welker catches 100 passes every year, and Dashon Goldson is an All-Pro. But this crop is more about aging defensive players like Charles Woodson, Brian Urlacher and Ronde Barber. And then are some solid but hardly unforgettable receivers and running backs: Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace, Reggie Bush and Michael Turner. When full free agency begins today at 4 p.m., with all 32 teams under the $123 million salary cap, the bidding wars might be furious for a while. Or perhaps not, considering the dangers of signing players beyond their peak years to rich deals that can financially hamstring teams in the future. The stakes are high. We did this study to try to determine what the hit rate was, says Bill Polian, who built the Bills, Panthers and Colts into Super Bowl teams and now is analyst for ESPN and SiriusXM. It ends up in our study being about what it was for the draft, right around 50 percent, slightly above that. You then get into the qualitative judgment or subjective judgment of at what cost? So player A, who cost you $12 million a year, is he a success if he starts or is he a success if he helps you get to the playoffs? The number of free agents who helped their teams get to the playoffs last season is impressive. From the Super Bowl rosters alone are Baltimore safety Reed, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and LB-DE Paul Kruger; 49ers safety Goldson, DT Isaac Sopoaga, TE Delanie Walker and WR Randy Moss. And you can throw in Welker, Turner, Sam Baker, Dan Koppen, Andre Smith and Fred Davis. Both backfields are loaded with candidates without contracts. Joining Reed, Goldson, Woodson and Barber among defensive backs available are Aqib Talib, Brent Grimes, Kenny Phillips, LaRon Landry and brother Dawan Landry, Dominique RodgersCromartie, Keenan Lewis, and Quentin Jammer. Tailbacks and fullbacks include Bush, Turner, Steven Jackson, Ahmad Bradshaw, Jerome Felton, Shonn Greene and Rashard Mendenhall. Polian warns about one position being a risk in the draft: wide receiver. But he says in free agency, thats not necessarily the case. So spending big bucks on Welker, Wallace, Jennings, or taking a gamble on Moss, Deion Branch or Julian Edelman might pay off. Of high interest is how longtime stars with their current teams fare on the marketplace. Urlacher is 34, Reed is 35, Woodson is 36 and Barber is 37. Do owners and general managers take a chance that each of those perennial Pro Bowlers have enough left to bring more than experience and leadership to their teams? Beginning today, NFL fans interest surely will rise, even if no footballs are being thrown or kicked.

Indiana coach Tom Crean said he apologized to Michigan assistant Jeff Meyer for their heated exchange after Sundays game. Crean said Monday he apologized to Meyer over the phone on the way to the plane afterward. He said he wishes he had never addressed anything after the heat of battle in a game, but I did and we move on. The incident happened after the Hoosiers beat the Wolverines 72-71 for the Big Ten title. Indianapolis TV station WRTV showed Crean being restrained as he yelled at Meyer: You helped wreck the program. Crean was hired by Indiana in 2008 and inherited a program burdened by NCAA sanctions for violations under former coach Kelvin Sampson. Meyer served on Sampsons staff but was cleared of any major violations. Vikings trade Harvin to SeahawksMINNEAPOLIS Percy Harvin is on his way to Seattle to join the Seahawks. A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to trade the unhappy receiver to Seattle for a package that includes the Seahawks first-round draft pick in April. The person requested anonymity because the deal will not be official until Harvin passes a physical. Foxsports.com first reported the trade and also reported that Seattle included a seventhrounder this year and a midround draft pick in 2014. Harvin was unhappy with his contract and his role in the Vikings struggling passing offense. He missed the final six games last season with an ankle injury.49ers acquire Boldin from RavensBALTIMORE The San Francisco 49ers have acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens for a sixth-round draft pick. Boldin, a star in Baltimores run to the Super Bowl title last season, must pass a physical to complete the deal. Boldin had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers. The 32-year-old Boldin had said hed consider retirement rather than leave Baltimore. But going to the NFC champions might change his mind. From wire reports Citrus claims historic victory Canes edge Lecanto in first sanctioned flag football game in county J USTIN P LANTE CorrespondentINVERNESS It was a night of firsts in Inverness. It was the first time any county school has ever fielded a girls flag football team, and the first time any of them have ever been played under the FHSAA banner. And it was also Citrus High Schools first flag football win. In an inaugural classic, the Lady Canes took the first step in what they hope to be a lasting future in the young sport by defeating cross-county rival Lecanto High School in a 15-0 victory that, aside from a quick burst of offense in the waning minutes, looked more like a soccer match than a football game. You know, pregame jitters, Lecanto head coach Bob LeCours said following the game. We had a bad snap that gave them a safety, which I thought was the big turning point. But other than that, and the late score we gave up, I thought the girls played great. It was largely a game of field position, with both teams never really gaining any footing offensively until late in the second half. The biggest play of the game, before the final 30 seconds, was a bobbled snap by the Lady Panthers in their own end zone that led to a Citrus safety and a two-point lead with just over 10 minutes to play in the second half. The lack of offense for Citrus was due to Lecantos smart defensive play. Both defenses played great tonight, Signing day Associated Press Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Ronde Barber knocks the ball out of the grasp of Tennessee Titans running back Javon Ringer on Nov. 27, 2011. Most of the big names hitting NFL free agency in 2013 arent big stars anymore. While Ed Reed is coming off a Super Bowl season in Baltimore and Wes Welker catches 100 passes every year, this crop is more about aging defensive players such as Charles Woodson, Brian Urlacher and Barber. Canes rout Bulldogs Citrus scores 9-1 non district win S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentINVERNESS The Citrus baseball club tallied 12 hits while taking advantage of six Umatilla errors to prevail 9-1 in a non district contest at home on Monday. The Hurricanes sent 24 batters to the plate through the second, third and fourth innings and scored all nine of their runs during the stretch. Doing themselves no favors, the Bulldogs (3-7) combined to commit five errors over the second and third innings. Sophomore shortstop Robert Wilkinson went 4 for 4 and collected a pair of runs and two RBIs to pace Canes batters. Citrus junior catcher Cody Bogart, who pounded out a pair of home runs in last weeks onerun loss to Springstead, was 3 for 3 with three runs, and senior third baseman Tyler Beagan knocked in three runs on a 3-for-4 night for the Canes. Citrus made just one error on the night and improved to 5-4 on the season. It was a lot of offseason work, playing in travel ball and all, and right now all of my coaches are helping me become more consistent with my hands and put it all together, Bogart said of the effort behind his recent productivity. Sophomore starter Alex Atkinson held Umatilla scoreless for the first four innings before getting relief from sophomore Cy Yates in the fifth. Atkinson fanned four, walked two and yielded six hits for his second win of the season. Yates struck out three Bulldogs in 2 2/3 innings of work, surrendering just one baserunner. Alex is doing a good job bouncing around from JV and varsity, Citrus head coach Brady Bogart said. Hes going to get some quality innings on varsity we knew that going in this year. Cy also got some good innings, so we did what we wanted to do with the pitching staff. We took advantage of some errors and got us a good lead and got to move some guys around at positions, coach Bogart added. Overall, were Beloved coach and teacher remembered J AMES B LEVINS CorrespondentWhen Citrus High School biology teacher and track coach Doug Patton passed away on Jan. 26, 2011, of cancer at the age of 61, he left behind not just a wife of 25 years and two daughters, but untold thousands of students, athletes and contemporaries who were touched by his presence on the track or his guidance in the classroom.

Citrus boys track and field head coach Chop Alexander hopes the meet will continue to hold the lantern high in honor of the beloved former track coach who also worked in football, tennis, swimming and girls weightlifting. He was a very well-respected man in the classroom and on the field, Alexander said of Patton. He was a lot of the kids favorite teacher. He started the girls weightlifting program (at Citrus) as well as coaching track. He was a well-rounded coach, Alexander continued. He has a legacy and the kids who were coached by him will never forget him. He coached a lot of district champs and a lot of athletes who performed well in the county. The meet is an intracounty affair, with only Lecanto, Citrus, Crystal River and Seven Rivers Christian high schools participating.

B2 T UESDAY, M ARCH 12, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS Jilted Magic fans ready for Howards return Associated PressORLANDO The number 12 is no longer sacred in Orlando. The man who used to wear it, Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard, also once shouldered the Magics hopes of attaining an elusive first NBA championship. But after eight years of chasing it, and taking Orlando through one of the most turbulent seasons in its history last year, the man who called himself Superman is now the citys biggest villain. He returns for the first time today since his offseason trade to the Lakers to face the jilted fans, frontoffice members and handful of teammates that he left behind. Im not sure, Magic point guard Jameer Nelson said when asked about his expectations for Tuesday. Obviously the atmosphere is gonna be probably a little turned up, a littler crazier than weve had so far this year. Nelson, Hedo Turkoglu and Glen Davis are the only players on the Magics roster that have previously played with Howard. With Davis out with a broken foot and Turkoglu serving a suspension for violating the NBAs drug policy, only Nelson will play in the rematch. There will be a No. 12 on the Magics sideline, though. Only it will be worn by one of the Magics most recent acquisitions, secondyear forward Tobias Harris. Hes been wearing it since his senior year in high school. Fans once called Howard D-12, they now refer to Harris as T-12, a subtle dig to the star whose luster has faded in central Florida. If his contentious departure from Orlando didnt add enough heat, Howard tweaked many in Orlando last week when he referred to his former Magic team as full of people that nobody wanted during a television interview. He clarified later saying he only meant they were underrated. He went further Monday when he apologized for his part in last years drama during an interview withUSA Today, saying in part that he handled a lot of stuff the wrong way and got caught up in trying to please everyone. Howard acknowledges, though, that his reception will be icy. My dad said I might as well get earplugs, Howard said. I think itll be tough for everybody ... I heard they have chants ready, so it should be interesting. The Magic stunned the Lakers on the road back in December, 113-103, in easily their biggest win of the season. The Lakers were able to shake it off as early season chemistry issues, but this time around cant afford any slippage as they try to hang on to a West playoff spot. We gotta get this win, Howard said. Thats whats on our mind. We dont know if its going to be a hostile environment or a good environment, but it really doesnt matter. I know these guys are gonna be there for me. For a fan base that has previously trudged through similar sagas and departures of All-Stars like Shaquille ONeal, Tracy McGrady and Grant Hill, this latest bitter homecoming is one that no one in Orlando ever expected to have endure again. Now that its here, though, the city and its fans are preparing to make Howards return the most unwelcoming to date. Along with chatter on social media planning signs to taunt Howard with, a local radio station put up electronic billboards in three Florida counties mocking Howards visit. They feature a running countdown clock to Tuesdays game time with the tagline Til Dwight Leaves Us Again. And boos are almost certainly expected to echo inside the Amway Center which Howard once helped draw sellout crowds in. Longoria has pair of RBI doubles in Rays loss Associated PressPORT CHARLOTTE Evan Longoria had a pair of run-scoring doubles and a Luke Scott hit his first home run of the spring for the Tampa Bay Rays, who squandered a ninth-inning lead Monday night and lost to the Minnesota Twins 6-4 in 10 innings.

Right-hander Alex Colome and left-handers Mike Montgomery and Frank De Los Santos were optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday. Left-hander Enny Romero was optioned to Double-A Montgomery and lefty Felipe Rivero was optioned to Class-A Charlotte. Right-handers Marquis Fleming and Matt Buschmann, and left-hander Adam Liberatore were reassigned to minor league camp. Lady Canes avoid sting of defeat, 2-1 D AVIDP IEKLIK CorrespondentINVERNESS The Citrus Lady Hurricanes avoided getting stung Monday, winning 2-1 against the Weeki Wachee Lady Hornets in a girls softball pitching showdown. Kayla Quesenberry pitched a complete game for Citrus (8-2), recording six strikeouts and giving up a lone run on three hits. She also batted in the winning run. Lauren Brigham also pitched a complete game in the losing effort, allowing two runs on 11 hits for the Hornets (0-14-1). I thought we were aggressive on the base paths. I thought we came out aggressive at the plate, Citrus head coach Larry Bishop said. You want to obviously be able to pull out the close ones. The game was close throughout, as the teams traded runs in the first two innings. Weeki Wachees Noelle Neugath batted in shortstop Megan Sauters from third base in the top of the first to make the score 1-0. The Canes responded in their half of the second inning on a Erica Corlew sacrifice fly to left field to tie the score. Quesenberry started to settle into a rhythm right after, striking out leadoff batter Ashley Vera to start a 1-2-3 third inning, before throwing another three-up, three-down fourth inning. Though Citrus got a little too aggressive on the basepaths seeing baserunners twice get overzealous on sharply-hit line drives to the outfield that were caught, resulting in double plays they stayed composed and waited for good pitches at the plate. After Sara Marchant and Brooke Holmes reached base on infield singles in the bottom of the fifth inning, Quesenberry hit the first pitch she saw to third base, scoring April DeSomma, who had been brought into the game to run for Marchant. Quesenberry stuck out the first batter she faced in the sixth inning to start another 1-2-3 inning and ended the game in similar fashion after inducing three consecutive ground outs the following frame. After the game, Quesenberry complimented the entire team for stepping up and said the team is starting to gel with girls playing in different positions. Last year her freshman season she said the team laid a solid foundation. This year, its about building upon that foundation and building something great within the program, she said. Seven Rivers no match in district rematch C.J. RISAK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Just one week earlier, Seven Rivers Christian battled Academy at the Lakes softball team down to the final out before falling 6-5. The rematch, played on the Warriors home field Monday at Bicentennial Park in Crystal River, promised to be just as tight. It wasnt. The Wildcats built a 9-0 lead, then after surrendering two runs to Seven Rivers in the sixth, piled on six more in the seventh to post a 15-2 triumph. Academy played a good game and we didnt, Warriors coach Gary Dreyer said. One of his team captains, senior first baseman Rebecca Wright, was more succinct. We didnt come out ready to play, she said. We were not mentally into the game. Surprising, considering Academy is considered Seven Rivers main rival in District 2A-4. Dreyer talked the result over at length after the game, discussing it first with his entire team, then keeping his captains in a further discussion for another 15 minutes. Answers were not readily forthcoming. But as Dreyer noted in attempting to push this debacle into the past, We have another game tomorrow (at Hernando Christian). The win kept the Wildcats unbeaten in 2A-4; they are 6-1 overall, 3-0 in the district. Seven Rivers slipped to 4-3 overall, 02 in district play. Events started badly for the Warriors and got progressively worse. Academy got a run in the top half of the first on a run-scoring single by Sydney Boynton, Seven Rivers pitcher Tessa Kacers counterpart. The Wildcats tacked on an additional two runs in the second. Two errors and a hit batsman aided the rally, with Maria Aumaitre singling in one and Catherine Smith driving in another with a sacrifice bunt. Aumaitre singled and scored on Skyler Boyntons triple in the fourth and a walk, 76ers 106, Nets 97 PHILADELPHIA Spencer Hawes had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Jrue Holiday added 15 points and 11 assists and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Brooklyn Nets 106-97 on Monday night. Hawes set a season high for points and also had seven assists while helping the Sixers snap a five-game losing streak. Thaddeus Young had 16 points and 10 rebounds. 76ers coach Doug Collins won his 100th game with the team. Deron Williams had 27 points and 13 assists for the Nets.

S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE pleased. Some guys are getting into where theyre starting to drive the ball and others are rolling it over. Its still a work in progress. Its a big district game against Central (tonight) so hopefully the kids come out excited, ready to compete. Freshman starting pitcher Tanner Frabott tossed 3 1/3 innings for the Bulldogs. He struck out one Cane and yielded eight hits and a walk while getting little help from his defense. Junior shortstop Garrett Clark relieved Frabott for 3 2/3 innings and drove in Umatillas only run with a bloop single in the fifth that scored senior left-fielder Phillip Bowers, who reached on a double to the fence in left field. Clark fanned two and allowed four hits, no walks and no earned runs on the mound. Tonights game with the Bears starts at 6:30 p.m. at CHS. Central is 3-0 in the 6A-6 district, while Citrus sits at 2-1. Citrus head coach Mary Kalbaugh said after the game. We were a bit nervous, with this being our first game. But Lecantos defense played excellent. At the start of the second half, Citrus started to find some success in the run game that seemed to catch the Lady Panthers on their collective heels. But a quick interception and a big stop on a 10-play drive kept Lecanto in the game. It was the final 30 seconds of the game that made all the difference. Citrus success running the ball, due in part to the speed coming out of its backfield, led the Lady Canes down the field and, with 12 seconds left on the game clock, Citrus Decaysha Miller sped her way to the sideline and upfield to clinch the game and put her team up by eight. The final touchdown, a pick-six by Citrus Payton Wells, was just for decoration. Lecanto came out to play tonight, Citrus assistant coach Darrin Johnson said. They have talent and you can tell that. But our defense just played lights-out tonight. The great thing about this sport is that its wide open and its anyones game. Thats why its so fun. Now the first game is out of the way and the rest of the season looms. Lecantos Amanda Pitre, for one, is happy about the opening game and the direction the team is taking. Im just really proud of the commitment out of everyone, she said. A lot of our players have never played flag football, so for them to come in and learn a new sport from the beginning like they have and put it on the field like tonight, its really cool. Its only been three weeks, and weve already shown a lot of progress, so this years going to be fun.

Citrus returns to the courts Friday at home at 4 p.m. against Weeki Wachee.From staff report SPORTS BRIEFS a stolen base and a wild pitch with an error by Kacer brought home the first of three fifth-inning runs. A single by Brenna Walton delivered the second and an error scored the third, making it 7-0. Andrea Mauger singled in two more in the sixth, after an outfield error allowed the base runners to advance. Seven Rivers sliced into Academys lead in the bottom of the sixth when Wright followed singles by Allison Green and Kacer with a two-run triple to rightcenter field. It proved to be the highlight of the game for the Warriors. Dreyer switched pitchers to start the seventh, but the Wildcats jumped all over Milena Kacer. The first two batters singled with Walton, the lead runner, getting cut down at third on a throw from outfielder Gabby Wright. Milena Kacer then walked four straight batters to force home two runs and bring Tessa Kacer back into the game. Sydney Boyntons ensuing drive to center field was misplayed, with a pair of Seven Rivers errors on the play allowing three runs to score. Another error and an RBI single by Mauger completed the inning for Academy. Seven Rivers committed eight errors overall. We didnt really concentrate well in that first game, explained Academy coach Jerry English. And they came after us, they were very aggressive. In that first game we had three or four players who carried the load. Today we had everyone contributing. The Wildcats Sydney Boynton finished with three hits and a run batted in and worked all seven innings on the mound, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk, with seven strikeouts. Seven Rivers Tessa Kacer allowed 10 runs on nine hits and five walks with two hit batsmen, striking out two. Mauger, Aumaite and Walton each had two hits for Academy, with Mauger driving in three runs. Gabby Wright paced the Warriors attack with two hits. REMATCHContinued from Page B2

Hasselbeck staying put at The ViewNEW YORK No need to say goodbye to Elisabeth Hasselbeck Shes staying put as a co-host of The View despite reports insisting otherwise. Series cocreator Barbara Walters called that story particularly false on Mondays edition of the ABC daytime talk show. She says that we have no plans for Elisabeth to leave. She also denied reports that Hasselbeck has lost favor with The View for her conservative political stances, something Walters says we value and appreciate. Hasselbeck has been on The View for a decade.Harlem Shake brings lawsuits NEW YORK Two performers who said their songs have been used in Baauers No. 1 hit Harlem Shake are seeking compensation because their vocals have been used without permission. The New York Timesreported songs from Hector Delgado and Jayson Musson are used in Harlem Shake, which has become a viral hit thanks to YouTube videos of people dancing to the song. Delgados Maldades and Miller Time by Mussons former rap group, Plastic Little, are said to be sampled in Harlem Shake. The song is spending its third week on top of Billboards Hot 100 chart. Lawyer: Stephen Baldwin to avoid jail NEW CITY, N.Y. Stephen Baldwin will avoid jail and will have up to five years to pay $350,000 in back taxes and penalties, his lawyer said Monday. Attorney Russell Yankwitt said he and prosecutors tentatively agreed that Baldwin, youngest of the four acting Baldwin brothers, will admit in court this month that he repeatedly failed to file his New York state income tax returns. Baldwin, who starred in 1995s The Usual Suspects, is accused of skipping his 2008, 2009 and 2010 returns. When he was arrested in December, the district attorney said Baldwin could face up to four years in prison if convicted. But at Mondays closeddoor conference at the Rockland County Courthouse, The district attorneys office and the judge made it very clear that Mr. Baldwin will not be going to prison, Yankwitt said. If Mr. Baldwin cant work, he cant pay back his back taxes. Baldwin, 46, of Upper Grandview, was not at the conference. Prosecutor Anthony Dellicarri confirmed a tentative agreement had been reached on a plea deal but would not detail the specifics. Yankwitt said that if Baldwin pays back the money within a year, the case will be discharged on the condition he stay out of trouble. Associated PressAUSTIN, TexasI n the frenzy of South by Southwest, even standouts like The Flaming Lips feel the need to stand out. Now consider that problem while surveying the 2,200 mostly unknown bands packing Austin starting Tuesday for the marquee week of the trendy festival that blends the famous and nameless, headlined this year by Green Day, Dave Grohl, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Natalie Maines of The Dixie Chicks and Snoop Lion (perhaps still better known as Snoop Dogg). Squeezing into the intimate showcases for those big acts will be all but impossible. The Flaming Lips will take all comers at a free outdoor concert, yet the psychedelic rockers known for theatrical live spectacles are still pulling out the stops for attention, performing their yet-unreleased album The Terror in its entirety for the first time. Call it a lesson for all the lesser-knowns at SXSW: make your set memorable, or leave possibly forgotten. You have to do something beyond your normal show and normal existence, said The Flaming Lips multiinstrumentalist Steven Drozd, who believes SXSW can still make a band that shows up struggling to make a living. If youre playing SXSW and playing in the right spot, this might be the time a manager of another band might see you and you get your shot. Otherwise, you may not get your shot at all. That SXSW has skewed too commercial at the expense of up-and-comers is a gripe that sometimes feels as old as The Flaming Lips, whose dark new album set for release in April will be their 13th in their 30-year history. What ostensibly began in 1987 as an insider gathering for unsigned bands to catch the eye of a record executive or musical tastemaker has mushroomed into a weeklong party with a festival feel and A-list acts. Other notables at the SXSW this year include Vampire Weekend, Kendrick Lamar, Iggy and the Stooges, the Black Lips, Tegan and Sara, Haim and Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moores new side project, Chelsea Light Moving. Then there are the stars who will inevitably drop in for unannounced shows, such as when 50 Cent and Eminem collaborated for a set that was also streamed on YouTube. James Minor, the general manager of the music arm of SXSW, said the upside of SXSW for chart-topping artists is a fresh dose of relevance. But he describes the festival that runs through Saturday as a still-valuable showcase for emerging bands to get exposure and take crash courses on the business side of an evolving industry where its getting harder for artists to make a buck. I feel people are turning around a little bit, as maybe in the past they see SXSW as party time, Minor said. But I feel like theres a general sense that artists that are succeeding are more aware of the industry. Among those out for awareness this week are The Rubens, an Austrialian rock band who has yet to release an album in the U.S., let alone play here before. Frontman Sam Margin is grateful his band has it better than most theyre already signed to a major label in Warner Bros. but is expecting a competitive atmosphere that raises the stakes to standout. That doesnt mean any gimmicks for The Rubens theyre just hoping their performances finds buzz in a week thats so packed with bands that even Margin confesses to trouble navigating it. Its been really hard to find anything. Ive been Googling it and there is so much going on, Margin said. Of course, the big acts dont show up simply to upstage the rest of the lineup. Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, whose substance abuse problems last year forced the band to postpone the start of a 2013 arena tour, debuts the documentary Broadway Idiot that jumps from concerts to the punk bands Broadway musical.

In 1943, Aaron Coplands Fanfare for the Common Man had its world premiere with Eugene Goossens conducting the Cincinnati Symphomy. In 1951, Dennis the Menace, created by cartoonist Hank Ketcham, made its syndicated debut in 16 newspapers. In 1980, a Chicago jury found John Wayne Gacy Jr. guilty of the murders of 33 men and boys. (The next day, Gacy was sentenced to death; he was executed in May 1994.)

Spotlight on PEOPLE Florida LOTTERIES SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 E NTERTAINMENT Page B4 TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013 Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. Zombies seem to be everywhere these days. In the popular TV series The Walking Dead, humans struggle to escape from a pack of zombies hungry for flesh. Prank alerts have warned of a zombie apocalypse on radio stations in a handful of states. And across the country, zombie wannabes in tattered clothes occasionally fill local parks, gurgling moans of the undead. Are these just unhealthy obsessions with death and decay? To Clemson University professor Sarah Lauro, the phenomenon isnt harmful or a random fad, but part of a historical trend that mirrors a level of cultural dissatisfaction and economic upheaval. Lauro, who teaches English at Clemson, studied zombies while working on her doctoral degree at the University of California at Davis. Lauro said she keeps track of zombie movies, television shows and video games, but her research focuses primarily on the concept of the zombie walk, a mass gathering of people who, dressed in the clothes and makeup of the undead, stagger about and dance. Its a fascination that, for Lauro, a self-described chicken, seems unnatural. The zombie mob originated in 2003 in Toronto, Lauro said, and popularity escalated dramatically in the United States in 2005, alongside a rise in dissatisfaction with the war in Iraq. It was a way that the population was getting to exercise the fact that they felt like they hadnt been listened to by the Bush administration, Lauro said. Nobody really wanted that war, and yet we were going to war anyway. As of last year, Lauro said, zombie walks had been documented in 20 countries. The largest gathering drew more than 4,000 participants at the New Jersey Zombie Walk in Asbury Park, N.J., in October 2010, according to Guinness World Records. We are more interested in the zombie at times when as a culture we feel disempowered, Lauro said. And the facts are there that, when we are experiencing economic crises, the vast population is feeling disempowered. ...

Mummies for medicine Associated Press A group of cardiologists led by Saint Lukes Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City, showing the mummy Hatiay (New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty, 1550 to 1295 BCE) being scanned in Cairo, Egypt, where it was found to have evidence of extensive vascular diseas e by CT scanning. This scanning is part of a major survey to investigate some 137 mummies, which has revealed that people probabl y had clogged arteries and heart disease some 4,000 years ago. CT scans of 137 mummies showed evidence of atherosclerosis, or hardened arteries, in one third of those examined, including those from ancient people believed to have healthy lifestyles. Study of preserved bodies: Even ancient peoples had clogged arteries M ARIA C HENG AP medical writer LONDON E ven without modern-day temptations like fast food or cigarettes, people had clogged arteries some 4,000 years ago, according to the biggest-ever study of mummies searching for the condition. Researchers say that suggests heart disease may be more a natural part of human aging rather than being directly tied to contemporary risk factors like smoking, eating fatty foods and not exercising. CT scans of 137 mummies showed evidence of atherosclerosis, or hardened arteries, in one third of those examined, including those from ancient people believed to have healthy lifestyles. Atherosclerosis causes heart attacks and strokes. More than half of the mummies were from Egypt while the rest were from Peru, southwest America and the Aleutian islands in Alaska. The mummies were from about 3800 B.C. to 1900 A.D. Heart disease has been stalking mankind for over 4,000 years all over the globe, said Dr. Randall Thompson, a cardiologist at Saint Lukes Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City and the papers lead author. The mummies with clogged arteries were older at the time of their death, around 43 versus 32 for those without the condition. In most cases, scientists couldnt say whether the heart disease killed them. The study results were announced Sunday at a meeting of the American College of Cardiology in San Francisco and simultaneously published online in the journal Lancet. Thompson said he was surprised to see hardened arteries even in people like the ancient Aleutians who were presumed to have a healthy lifestyle as hunter-gatherers. I think its fair to say people should feel less guilty about getting heart disease in modern times, he said. We may have oversold the idea that a healthy lifestyle can completely eliminate your risk. Thompson said there could be unknown factors that contributed to the mummies narrowed arteries. He said the Ancestral Puebloans who lived in underground caves in modern-day Colorado and Utah, used fire for heat and cooking, producing a lot of smoke. They were breathing in a lot of smoke and that could have had the same effect as cigarettes, he said. H EALTH & L IFE D uring the past several years, screening for various cancers has come under fire, specifically, mammography for breast cancer and the PSA blood test for prostate cancer. However, I think anyone who truly looks at the benefits of screening will realize how important it is, and that many lives are saved each and every year due to early detection and treatment. Nowhere is this more pronounced than in screening for colon cancer. For average-risk Screen to reduce risks See BENNETT / Page C4 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Screen for lung cancer L ung cancer is the deadliest cancer in the United States. Lung cancer causes more deaths than the next three most common cancers combined (colon, breast and prostate). This is a major disaster. As a country, we must do something to improve this situation. As in many other cancers, early diagnosis is the key in improving odds for cure. The five-year survival rate for lung cancer is 52.6 percent for cases detected when the disease is still localized (within the lungs). However, only I recently read a very interesting article in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care, which had some very important information I would like to get out to the community. I am sure everyone is familiar with obstructive sleep apnea and stroke two disease entities that can cause severe problems, and affect quality of life. You can imagine the damage and problems that can occur if one is superimposed on the other. Oxygen and circulation levels that are affected and depleted by obstructive sleep apnea and stroke can place one at risk for an early demise. A study cited in the journal showed stroke patients who were offered CPAP equipment for their obstructive sleep apnea when diagnosed had much better outcomes than patients who were not identified, or refused to use a CPAP device. Once again, CPAP is a device Obstructive sleep apnea, CPAP and stroke risk A s the weather warms up and we begin to spend long hours being active outdoors, it is a good time to review prevention and first aid for common outdoor hazards. Many injuries can be avoided by taking standard safety precautions and being alert. Slather on the sunscreen before heading outside. In hot weather or during strenuous activity, make sure plenty of drinking water is available. Always supervise children around water. Move potential obstacles and hazards out of the way so that people wont trip over them. Teach children about the dangers of electricity. Handle hot foods and liquids carefully, and keep toddlers away from stoves, barbecue grills and campfires. Learn about ladder safety and keep your ladders where young children cannot easily access them. Mosquito bites Deet, an insect repellent often recommended for protection against mosquito-borne illnesses, should not be used on children because it is absorbed through the skin.

What about bad reactions to cosmetics? A: Yes, if youve had a bad reaction to a beauty, personal hygiene or makeup product, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wants to hear from you. The federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act defines cosmetics as products that are intended to be applied to the body for cleansing, beautifying, promoting attractiveness, or altering the appearance. But the legal definition includes items that most people might not ordinarily think of as cosmetics, including: face and body cleansers deodorants moisturizers and other skin lotions and creams baby lotions and oils hair care products, dyes, conditioners, straighteners, perms makeup hair removal creams nail polishes shaving products perfumes and colognes face paints and temporary tattoos and permanent tattoos and permanent makeup. Consumers should contact the FDA if they experience a rash, hair loss, infection, or any other problem even if they didnt follow product directions. The FDA also wants to know if a product has a bad smell or unusual color which could signal contamination or if the items label is incomplete or inaccurate. If you have any concerns about a cosmetic contact MedWatch, the FDAs problem-reporting program, on the Web (www.fda.gov, click on MedWatch and Begin) or by calling 800-332-1088. When you contact the FDA, include the following information in your report: the name and contact information for the person who had the reaction; the age, gender and ethnicity of the products user; the name of the product and manufacturer; a description of the reaction and treatment, if any; the health care providers name and contact information, if medical attention was provided; and when and where the product was purchased. When a consumer report is received, the FDA enters the information into a database of negative reactions. Experts then look for reports related to the same product or similar ones. FDA scientists will use the information to determine if the product has a history of problems and represents a public health concern that needs to be addressed. If you file a consumer report, your identity will remain confidential. Richard P Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years. Send questions to him at 2960 E.

M ARILYNNM ARCHIONE AP chief medical writer SAN FRANCISCO Stress does bad things to the heart. New studies have found higher rates of cardiac problems in veterans with PTSD, New Orleans residents six years after Hurricane Katrina and Greeks struggling through that countrys financial turmoil. Disasters and prolonged stress can raise fight or flight hormones that affect blood pressure, blood sugar and other things in ways that make heart trouble more likely, doctors say. They also provoke anger and helplessness and spur heartharming behaviors like eating or drinking too much. Were starting to connect emotions with cardiovascular risk markers and the new research adds evidence of a link, said Dr. Nieca Goldberg, a cardiologist at NYU Langone Medical Center and an American Heart Association spokeswoman. She had no role in the studies, which were discussed Sunday at an American College of Cardiology conference in San Francisco. The largest, involving 207,954 veterans in California and Nevada ages 46 to 74, compared those with PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, to those without it. They were free of major heart disease and diabetes when researchers checked their Veterans Administration medical records from 2009 and 2010. Checked again about two years later, 35 percent of those with PTSD but only 19 percent of those without it had developed insulin resistance, which can lead to diabetes and hardening of the arteries. Doctors also saw higher rates of metabolic syndrome a collection of heart disease risk factors that include high body fat, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. About 53 percent of veterans with PTSD but only 37 percent of those without it had several of these symptoms. The numbers are estimates and are not as important as the trend more heart risk with more stress, said one study leader, Dr. Ramin Ebrahimi, a cardiologist at the Greater Los Angeles VA Medical Center and a professor at UCLA. It shows that PTSD can cause physical symptoms, not just the mental ones commonly associated with it. Twenty or 30 years ago PTSD was a term reserved for combat veterans. We have come to realize now that PTSD is actually a much more common disorder and it can happen in veterans who did not undergo combat but had a very traumatic experience such as losing a friend, he said. That goes for others who suffer trauma such as being raped, robbed at gunpoint or in a serious accident, he said. Nearly 8 million Americans have PTSD, the National Institute of Mental Health estimates. They include survivors of Hurricane Katrina. Tulane Medical Center doctors led a study of their hospitals patients that suggests heart attack incidence is three times higher in New Orleans than it was in the two years before the 2005 storm. Heart attacks made up 2.4 percent of admissions in the six years after the storm compared to just .7 percent before it. The post-storm patients were more likely to be unemployed or uninsured, to smoke, and to have depression, anxiety or high cholesterol, resarchers found. A third study found that heart attacks rose sharply in the Messinia area of southwestern Greece since January 2008, the start of that countrys financial crisis. Researchers compared medical records of more than 22,000 patients admitted to the General Hospital of Kalamata the only hospital with a cardiology department in the region. There were 1,084 heart attacks in the four years after the crisis began compared to 841 in the four years before it, even though the population and its demographics remained the same. Heart attack incidence rose 40 percent among women, who have higher unemployment rates than men and tend to be more responsible for child care a double burden of stress, said the lead researcher, Dr. Emmanouil Makaris.

GROUPS Continued from Page C3C4 T UESDAY, M ARCH 12, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE H EALTH& L IFE adults, a screening colon oscopy is associated with a significant decrease in the risk of any colorectal cancer, and specifically of a right colon cancer. And, as we enter into the age of using electronic health records (EHRs), we should see an increase in the screening rates, since the computer will remind us of all screening exams that should be done and when. This data is based upon two studies recently published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia examined the effectiveness of screening colonoscopy using data from 1,039 average-risk adults enrolled in four U.S. health plans. In analyses restricted to 471 eligible case patients and 509 matched controls, the researchers found that 2.8 percent of case patients and 9.0 percent of controls had undergone screening colonoscopy. The odds of developing a colorectal cancer on the left side of the colon were reduced with a sigmoidoscopy and a colonoscopy, but the sigmoidoscopy did not help in the detection of rightsided colon cancers, since the scope is shorter and cannot look at the right side. In the second study, researchers from the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle assessed whether interventions using EHRs, automated mailings and stepped-up increases in support improved adherence to colorectal screening over two years among 4,675 adults aged 50 to 73 years not current for colorectal screening. Interventions included usual care; EHR-linked mailings; EHR-linked mailings with telephone assistance; or EHR-linked mailings, telephone assistance and nurse navigation. The researchers found participants in intervention groups were significantly more likely to be current for colorectal screening for both years, compared with usual care. So, as you can see, compared with usual care, a centralized, EHR-linked, mailed colorectal screening program led to twice as many persons being current for screening over two years. While the adoption of HER is not an easy thing, one benefit will be the ability to automatically remind patients of important tests and screenings that may save their lives. Dr. C.

BENNETT Continued from Page C1 15 percent of lung cancer cases are diagnosed at an early stage. For distant tumors (spread to other organs) the five-year survival rate is only 3.5 percent. Obviously, if we want to improve the cure rate, we need to diagnose more patients when the cancer is localized. Unfortunately, at this stage either the patient has no symptoms or only vague symptoms. Many patients do not seek a doctors help until it has spread beyond the lung, which makes it practically incurable. What can we do to detect early lung cancer? The only proven way is screening. Lung cancer screening of all eligible heavy smokers has the potential to avert about 12,000 deaths from the disease each year in the United States. That reduction would represent 7.6 percent of total lung cancer deaths eliminated nationwide, via early detection with the low-dose CT regimen used in the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST). This was as per a study reported online in Cancer. The ACS, or American Cancer Society, supported this study. Patients who meet all of the following criteria may be candidates for lung cancer screening: 55 to 74 years old In fairly good health Have at least a 30 pack-year smoking history And are either still smoking or have quit smoking within the past 15 years. It is estimated 8.6 million Americans fit this criteria. Each CT scan costs several hundred dollars. This is costly. Also, many times, a spot seen on a CT scan looks like lung cancer and further investigation, which can amount to a biopsy or surgery, may find the lesion to be benign. This is called a false positive. This drives up the cost. The jury is still out on whether this should be fully implemented in the country. At this time, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, the American Lung Association, and some other groups now recommend annual CT scans for highrisk patients. While the ACS, or American Cancer Society, has not yet made the same recommendation, I personally feel it is a good idea in appropriate patients. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Whenever possible, use non-deet repellents or natural repellents such as citronella oil. If you must use an insect repellent containing deet, apply it on clothing rather than skin, and avoid rubbing it into cuts and open wounds. Do not apply it on the childs hands or around the eyes and mouth. Be careful not to inhale spray repellents and not to spray near food. Wash off the repellent with soap and water as soon as you come indoors. You can avoid diseasecarrying mosquitoes by coming indoors when at dusk. Reduce mosquitoes in areas where children play by removing standing water, and keep mosquitoes away from outdoor picnics with torches, citronella candles, or mosquito zappers. Spider bites Spider bites, which are common in Citrus County, are often confused with bug bites. Look for two tiny punctures instead of a single hole. A spider bite typically feels like a pinprick, followed several hours later by soreness, swelling, and sometimes a waterfilled blister. Wash the site of the bite with soap and water, and apply cool compresses. Aspirin and antihistamines can help relieve discomfort. Do not interfere with the blister. There are two types of venomous spiders in Florida, black widow (with a red hourglass on the back) and brown recluse (with a brown violinshaped marking on the back). With brown recluse bites, the blister sometimes sloughs off, leaving a lesion. A bite by a black widow should receive prompt medical attention. Tick bites When you spend time in the woods, inspect your body for ticks and shower soon after you come indoors to prevent tick bites. If the head of a tick breaks off and remains embedded in your skin, apply antibacterial cream and let your skin heal by itself. STARI (Southern TickAssociated Rash Illness), spread by the lonestar tick, can cause a red rash more than three inches across around the bite, accompanied by fatigue, fever and headaches. Bee and wasp stings Quickly apply household ammonia or a paste of baking soda and water to partially neutralize an ant, bee, or wasp sting. Use ice to minimize the swelling, and an itching cream to relieve the discomfort that follows. A person who experiences difficulty breathing after a sting may be having an allergic reaction that requires immediate medical attention. If someone in your household has a known allergy to bee stings, always keep an epinephrine pen on hand. Cut or wound To stop bleeding, apply steady direct pressure to a wound with a sterile gauze pad or a clean cloth. Once a cut has stopped bleeding, clean it, apply an antibiotic cream, and cover it with a bandage to keep it clean. A deep cut may require stitches. If a wound on an arm or leg is bleeding excessively, tie a scarf or necktie around the limb close to the armpit or groin, elevate the wound above the heart, and seek medical attention. Skinned knee A skinned knee or grazed elbow typically heals by itself if it is properly cleaned. Wash it gently with soap and running water to remove grit and sand. Then apply first aid cream and cover with a loose bandage. Seek medical attention if the wound shows signs of infection, interferes with the movement of a major joint, or covers a large area. Skin infection If the area around a bite or scratch becomes covered with small pimples, or if red areas appear on other parts of the body, see your doctor. Community-associated (CA) MRSA, a drugresistant skin infection spread by person-toperson contact, often starts as a reddened area or pimple that resembles a bug bite, but causes abnormal pain. It appears in other areas and does not respond to antibacterial ointments. Electrocution Do not let your children play outside after a storm until you know the area is safe. Downed power lines are very dangerous, and the electric current can be transmitted through puddles of water. Never touch someone who is in contact with electricity. Use an object made of wood, rubber or glass to push the person away from the power source before attempting first aid. Call for help and begin CPR. Sunburn At the beach or swimming pool, reapply sunscreen at regular intervals. You can get sunburned even in the shade. If you do become sunburned, take a cool shower or apply cool, moist towels to the area. Use an aloe vera or moisturizing lotion several times a day, and leave any blisters alone. If a blister pops by itself, use an antibacterial ointment to prevent infection. Stay out of the sun until you have recovered. Heat exhaustion Symptoms of heat exhaustion include headache; nausea; dizziness or faintness; rapid heartbeat; cool, moist, skin; heat cramps; and dark-colored urine. Have the victim lie down in the shade or in an air conditioned room with feet elevated. Loosen clothing and sponge or spray him with cool water. Have him drink cool water or another non-caffeinated beverage. Seek immediate medical attention if the persons temperature rises above 103 degrees or he seems disoriented. Take a few minutes to study first aid, and know how to access first aid information quickly in an emergency. The Red Cross first aid book is now available as a cellphone app, First Aid by the Red Cross. Several websites offer reliable information and instructions for medical emergencies, including Mayo Clinic First Aid (www.mayoclinic.com/ health/FirstAidIndex/First AidIndex) and BBC Health (www.bbc.co.uk/health).

WILSON Continued from Page C1H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, M ARCH 12, 2013 C5 Preparing for dentures brings questions Q : I am a 64-year-old, soon to be 65, in good health and in need of dentures. I have many questions for you. The first is having only 15 or 16 teeth left in this skull, how long will it take to extract these teeth? I have two of them broken off at the gum line. I agree with your idea that the gums need to heal before the patient is fitted for dentures. How long would you recommend? I do not have TMJ. Do you have the Wilcox device to measure the Yaw, Pitch, and roll of the jaw? My father was hemophiliac, and at my age, if I cut myself, I bleed for a time. I dont know if I have these traits, but it is something you should know. One of the most important questions is: Do you have terms for payment? I am semi-retired and have work as a handyman and am licensed to do so. During these economic times, people are reluctant to have work done. I realize that you will have to take full mouth X-rays and analyze them in order to give me a cost. I can afford this procedure. Are there levels of dentures? i.e. plastic (Volkswagen), porcelain (Mercedes), super dentures (Rolls Royce)??? Please respond when you are able or have the time. A: This is a great question, one I bet many people wonder about, as well. I am going to take each of your concerns one at a time. If you need further explanation on any issue, please let me know and I can go into more detail. Regarding the removal of your teeth you may recall from past columns that I usually remove the back teeth first and allow time for healing. Once healing is near complete, we start the process of making the denture. Once the denture is made, the rest of the teeth are removed and the denture goes in the same day. This process usually takes between two and three months. This is by far the nicest way to approach this, though there are times that we do it differently. You sound concerned with the teeth that are broken off at the gums. Please rest easy, there are predictable ways for us to remove teeth like this. It is hard to say just how long the extractions will take, but I would plan on one hour for the back teeth and one hour for the front teeth and the placement of the denture. You mentioned a Wilcox device. I am unfamiliar with this, though it is important that the proper jaw position is recorded and the relationship between the upper and lower jaws is correct. There are numerous ways to do this with each doctor preferring one of them. Your concern of a bleeding problem is important to address. I would suggest you have the necessary blood tests to rule out any bleeding disorders. Once we know the situation there are ways to deal with it. As you mentioned, a thorough examination and set of radiographs is imperative. Most dentists have a way for you to keep the costs within your budget. I would suggest you discuss this with the dentist you choose to do the treatment. You also mentioned different levels of denture quality. Many offices do offer this type of arrangement. I would be careful of this scenario, because it is typically a situation where they get you in on a low fee and then upsell you, as is done in many businesses. You would not typically expect this from your health care provider; however, it does happen. If you have read my column in the past, you know my father taught my brother and I to do things to the best of our ability and to do things right the first time. He taught us that cutting corners only ends up costing you more in the long run. He also said not to forget that your signature is on what you do be sure that you can be proud of it!

Dr. Frank Vascimini SOUND BITES you wear at night that keeps the airway open and unobstructed, so oxygen levels to the brain and the heart remain at normal levels. Researchers had learned that, when they followed a group for five years, nearly half of them had passed away at the conclusion of the study. But it seems noncompliance with their CPAP device was the causative factor, thus suggesting CPAP is an excellent device to prevent further stroke damage. There also are other variables, including the patients age and gender, and whether he or she smokes and lives a healthy lifestyle. But it was clear in the study that obstructive sleep apnea patients had nearly two times the risk of death compared to the ones who were compliant and wore their CPAP device at night. Admittedly, it is difficult to take into account all the possible factors that can influence whether an individual has another stroke or not such as diet and lifestyle measures, and whether they are taking their medications on a regular basis but this study did point out that obstructive sleep apnea, and previous history of stroke, if not addressed, can be a very lethal combination. Obviously, patient education for those who are unaware of the risk factors of obstructive sleep apnea is important to get out there, as well as improvements on equipment, so the patients who do decide to undergo CPAP treatment will remain compliant and stay on the medication for their entire life, thus reducing their risk for early death and extending their life and quality of life. As we all know, sometimes strokes do not kill you quickly they injure you, and leave you with a long period of poor quality of life.

Dr. Frank Ruehli of the University of Zurich, who runs the Swiss Mummy Project, said it was clear atherosclerosis was notably present in antiquity and agreed there might be a genetic predisposition. Humans seem to have a particular vulnerability (to heart disease) and it will be interesting to see what genes are involved, he said. Ruehli was not connected to the study. This is a piece in the puzzle that may tell us something important about the evolution of disease. Other experts warned against reading too much into the mummy data. Dr. Mike Knapton, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation, said calcified arteries could also be caused by other ailments, including endocrine disorders, and that it was impossible tell from the CT scans if the types of calcium deposits in the mummies were the kind that would have sparked a heart attack or stroke.

M ike and Judy Awe are providing means for transformation of those whom society has sometimes given up on. With inspiring innovations at the Sanctuary Grace House, it is a shelter by Gods grace in a complex society. Located on West Grover Cleveland Boulevard in Homosassa, it is a nonprofit and incorporated organization committed to the needs of the homeless of Citrus County, including released prisoners, recovering addicts, the homeless, single parents and others in need of shelter, redirection and purpose. Judy Awe enthusiastically spoke positively and with frankness about the sanctuary at a luncheon meeting of the Crystal River Womans Club. Their stated vision is to provide the highest-quality atmosphere for men and women to be set free from the deceptions of the world that have crippled them, with a mission to provide temporary, safe housing in their transitional phases of their lives. Education in life-management skills using biblical precepts and principles is implemented in order for them to become independent members of society. While at the sanctuary, the clients are trained to provide professional lawn care, tree removal, home painting, pressure washing and housecleaning services. All work is guaranteed. The sanctuary is licensed and insured. References are available upon request. For their services, you can contact Mike Awe, sanctuary director, at 352-6971373, or 352-601-8025 for Judy Awe, directors of the shelter. Recently, the sanctuary has opened a thrift store at the shelter and donations are greatly appreciated, including gently used furniture, grocery bags, shoes, clothing, house-wares, school supplies, printer paper, board games and toys, potting soil, planters and tools. The woemn are at work on their flower and veggie garden in hopes of establishing a nursery behind the thrift store. One of the things they will be doing is propagating houseplants and a variety of native Florida plants. The public is invited to donate clippings of their favorite plants and save their little pots spring plants come in to donate. A sanctuary tradition has been established: On the third Saturday of the month is Jam and Jelly Day! Customers receive a pint of the Grace House Sanctuary ladies homemade jam or jelly with a $20 purchase. We applaud the dedicated, committed efforts of Mike and Judy Awe at the Sanctuary Grace House in Homosassa. I continue to be amazed at the caring community of our beloved Citrus County where the old adage, Where there is a will, there is a way, is unanimously embodied. A fundraising banquet will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 4, at First United Methodist Church of Homosassa, 8831 W. Bradshaw St. Special music will be provided by Angela Vick and Karen Johnson. The featured speaker is Paul Cooper, who, though spending time in prison six times, was set free by the power of God. For tickets, call Mike Awe at 352-697-1373 or Judy Awe at 352-601-8025.

T UESDAY, M ARCH 12, 2013 C7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Who wrote this about whom? In this matter of shimmering into rooms, the chappie is rummy to a degree. This week we are going to look at the important topic of entries. It is no good having winners in your hand or on the board if you cannot get to them. In this example, how should South plan the play in three no-trump after West leads his fourth-highest heart? The North hand is too strong for one no-trump and too weak for two no-trump; hence, one spade. South is too weak for a two-level response; hence, one no-trump. When the opening-lead choice is between a major and a minor, it is usually right to pick the major because opponents will look for majorsuit fits, but rarely worry about the minors. South should establish and run his club suit. But as long as the opponent with the club ace learned the game before breakfast this morning, he will know not to take the first club trick; he will win the second club. Then South will have three winning clubs in his hand and will need an entry. What is his only entry? The heart queen. So South must take the first trick with dummys heart king (or ace), not run it around to his hand. Then he immediately attacks clubs. South will collect at least one spade, three hearts, one diamond and four clubs. Todays opening quotation was written by P .G. Wodehouse about Jeeves. If you have never read any of Wodehouses books, enter your local library or bookstore (concrete or electronic) and buy one.

We both have Facebook accounts. A year ago, Clark became friends with Toni, an ex-girlfriend from his late-teen years. I am my husbands third wife. Toni has been married at least twice, maybe three times. Ive lost track. The problem is, Clark and Toni were chatting and poking each other regularly until his sister told him it was not fair to me. Clark claimed he stopped chatting. However, the poking has continued. A few months ago, I sent Toni a friend request. All of Clarks friends from his hometown have friended me right off, but Toni didnt respond. Clark then asked her to do it as a favor to him. She then sent me a friend request, with no mention of being sorry for ignoring my previous one. I agreed so as not to be rude. When Tonis birthday came, I wished her a happy birthday. Our birthdays are in the same month. She ignored mine. Last week, I taught Clark how to delete a poke, and he did. But this week, they are doing it again. Since he was the one who did the delete, he must have been the one to start back up. When I asked him, his response was that nothing is going on and Facebook chatting and poking is no big deal. Clark has even commented that he would like to meet Toni, with me, just to see what she looks like now. Toni is not the only female who regularly pokes Clark on Facebook. I have told him that liking and sharing posts is less personal than pokes, chatting and messages. Now he is talking about creating a Twitter account. Am I overreacting, or should Clark be more considerate of my feelings? Torn Dear Torn: This boils down to trust. Something about Toni is ringing a lot of bells in your head, and Clark should respect this by limiting contact. However, he doesnt seem to have done anything untoward, so he objects to your reaction. Try calmly explaining why Toni bothers you and why it is important that his behavior reassure, rather than alarm, you. He needs to know this is moving into risky territory. Dear Annie : Im 19 years old and work at least 60 hours a week. I recently found out I am pregnant. The father does not have a job and lives far away. I want him involved with our child, but not if he cant help support the baby. Am I being too harsh? Hard Worker Dear Hard : Yes. A parents importance should not be based on his income. Support is more than money. It can include taking care of the child and being emotionally supportive of the mother. Unless the father is a drug addict, alcoholic or abuser, your childs relationship with him is necessary and beneficial. But the father should be actively looking for work so he can pay child support, and you should hold him responsible for it. In the meantime, please dont deny either of them the positive aspects of this relationship. Dear Annie : I read the letter from Walk a Mile in My Shoes, who complained about out-of-state relatives who try to take over caregiving duties. Heres our family wisdom when visiting or offering to help a primary caregiver: Think of yourself as the assistant caregiver, and simply ask the primary caregiver what, when, where and how. Do your best to do what they would do. Dont make suggestions or change routines. Just give them the peace of mind of knowing that they can leave for a while and everything will be done exactly as they would have done it. This attitude is helpful and comforting to the primary caregiver, who certainly doesnt need any additional stress.

Bypass surgery is one of the most common operations in the world. There is great debate about the best way to do it, and patients often are given a choice. Usually doctors stop the heart to make it easier to connect new blood vessels to make detours around blocked ones. But some patients later complain of pumphead mental decline thought to be from the heartlung machines used to pump their blood while their hearts could not. So surgeons started doing offpump bypasses on beating hearts. Nearly one quarter of bypasses are done this way now. But that brought a new complaint: Results on the blood vessels seemed not as good. The new studies were aimed at testing all these factors in a rigorous way to see which method was best. Dr. Andre Lamy of Canadas McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, led a study of 4,752 people in 19 countries. They were randomly assigned to have bypasses with or without the use of heart pumps. After one year, there were no big differences in the rates of death, heart attack, stroke or kidney failure in the two groups. Slightly more people who had bypasses without a heart-lung machine needed a follow-up procedure to open clogged arteries but the difference was so small it could have occurred by chance alone. Mental sharpness and quality of life also was similar in the two groups. That suggests that whatever decline occurred was temporary, or a result of anesthesia or something other than the way the operations were done, said Dr. Timothy Gardner, a surgeon at Christiana Care Health System in Newark, Del., and an American Heart Association spokesman. Im actually somewhat surprised the methods proved equally good because the operation is so much harder to do on beating hearts, he said. It seems pretty conclusive that either way is fine. That was true even in people 75 or older, a group most worried about going on a heart-lung machine. The second study tested the two bypass methods in 2,539 of these elderly patients in Germany. Again, the methods proved equally safe and effective a year later. The studies were discussed Monday at an American College of Cardiology conference in San Francisco and published online by the New England Journal of Medicine. Marilynn Marchione can be followed on Twitter at (at)MMarchioneAP After one year, there were no big differences in the rates of death, heart attack, stroke or kidney failure in the two groups.
