Crystal River relay begins Friday E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerLECANTO Citrus County has supported the fight against cancer by raising thousands of dollars yearly during the Relay for Life events in Crystal River, Inverness and Lecanto. Determined to amplify their revenue and attendance, Lecanto Relay for Life organizers are eager for the county to see the events anti-cancer-style decades theme. I invite everyone to come out to Lecanto and give it a shot to see what it is all about, said Lecanto Relay for Life operation coordinator Holli Herndon. Lecanto has a different culture there because it is a mix of the whole county. There are a lot of people coming that are adding their own style and flair. American Cancer Societys Relay for Life at Lecanto High A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerIt is a case of many tentacles and recesses. It also is a case of dogged police work and the tale of a grainy video chronicling the activities of three alleged burglars in the still of a mid-December night at a local concrete business. Gardners Concrete is set back a little ways off West Homosassa Trail with a small sign by the side of the road with the businesss name on it. Around the back is a fenced-in area that leads to the back and side of the office building where Wes Gardner kept tools of the trade generators, expensive saws with enough mettle to cut through concrete, and drills and bits and power washers. He also parked his trucks there. However, the trio of burglars wearing gloves the night of Dec. 10 were unaware of several small cameras recording their moves. Gardner said the security system captured the burglars cutting through the fence and loading a bunch of his equipment on one of his trucks. They damaged the gate and drove off. The stolen truck was found torched a few miles away.

Communications dispatchers received a call at 3:49 a.m. in reference to a shooting that occurred at 10495 E. Rabbit Lane in Floral City, it was reported by Heather Yates, CCSO public information officer. The woman killed was identified as Deseray Lynn Bowles, 24, of Inverness. Deputies responded to Sleepy Hollow, a restaurant on nearby East Gobbler Drive, where witnesses had taken Bowles. The victim was transported to Citrus Memorial hospital, where she died from her injuries. CCSO detectives are looking for 29-year-old Gregory Scott Holub, of 5236 26th St. W., Bradenton, in connection with the shooting that resulted in Bowless death.

Everybody, including the legislators, the manufacturers and the homeowners (are) facing the same problem, said Edward Green, president of the Citrus County Citizens Coalition, a manufactured homes residents association. Senate Bill 1168 that Sen. (Charlie) Dean has proposed offers a solution. Its a win-win-win for everyone. At a town hall meeting in October in the Walden Woods club house Dean, RInverness, said he would introduce a bill to regulate the rates and frequency of lot rent increases in manufactured home parks throughout Florida. More than 1,000 people from across the state had signed a petition asking for the creation of legislation designed to control, govern and regulate proposed market rent upon the resale of a leased lot rental property. Dean received the petition and heard the issue from manufactured home residents from Citrus and neighboring counties.

Around the STATE Citrus County Meadowcrest project to impact traffic This week, traffic will be slow through the intersection of Meadowcrest Boulevard and State Road 44 near Crystal River as workers install poles for a new traffic signal. There will be temporary lane closures and traffic shifts through the work area starting on Tuesday through Wednesday.

Animal Services staff said dog food is in especially short supply. For information on how to help, call 352-7468400. Monetary donations may be mailed to Citrus County Animal Services, 4030 S. Airport Road, Inverness, FL 34450. The shelter is at the end of Airport Road, off U.S. 41 between the Inverness Airport and the county auditorium/fairgrounds, just south of Inverness.

Rahquel Carr was shot in the upper body with a handgun believed to have been fired from inside the vehicle, Miami-Dade Police Detective Roy Rutland said. The owner of the weapon and the car was not present. At least two other children were in the vehicle at the time, all believed to have been younger than 10, Rutland said. From staff and wire reports Page A3 MONDAY, APRIL 1, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerFour applications will go before the planning panel on Thursday, including requests to build a guest cottage, to amend a subdivisions recreation site, to help a business impacted by roadwork and to improve a mobile home park. Brian Kowalski of Custom Family Homes for David Huffman and Ursula Schwuttke will make a conditional-use request to the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC) to convert a 900-square-foot detached garage into a 1,260square-foot guest cottage that is exceeding the 750square-foot maximum at 16219 E. River Road, Inglis. As the cottage would not adversely affect public interest and is generally compatible with adjacent properties, staff recommends approval on condition that the guest cottage shall not be sold separately. Timothy C. Pitts for Crystal Glen Properties Inc. has asked that a tract of land dedicated to the Crystal Club be vacated because the Crystal Club was dissolved three years ago. Staff recommends approval as the request has been determined as consistent with the comprehensive plan. The action would allow other development on the property. DPD for Citrus Equipment and Victor Nadal has requested a land-use change regarding two lots of about 1.13 acres on West Rich Street in Crystal River. Two adjacent lots lost some frontage because of a project to widen County Road 486. The land-use change is recommended for approval, as it is consistent with the comprehensive plan and serves as a cure to road project issues. Denise A. Dymond Lyn for Kathryn Trabert and Marilyn Ann Lee has requested land-use changes for about 3.48 acres in Chassahowitzka known as Golden Knight Mobile Home Park for improvements to the park: open space, recreation and placement of R.V. pads. Staff recommends approval with conditions. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com.

Sovereign Path, Lecanto. CALL: 352-527-5239. AGENDA: http://www.bocc.citrus.fl.us/ commissioners/advboards/pdc/pdc.htm. P AT F AHERTY Staff writerAddressing a state House subcommittee last week, Progress Energy Florida President Alex Glenn emphasized the role of nuclear power in Floridas energy mix. He and other speakers addressed advanced nuclear cost recovery, Floridas dependence on natural gas and the status of the proposed Levy County nuclear plant. Florida is about 61 percent on natural gas and we will be the third most natural-gas-dependent state by 2020, he said. This is the most volatile fuel source (cost-wise) we have. He noted gas prices are at an all-time low right now, but that Progress/ Duke Energy are planning for growth and are concerned with the reliability and cost-effectiveness of natural gas, as well as its role in energy security and its impact on the environment. He said prices on solar have come down, but there are still issues. A game-changer would be solar storage; its one option we are looking at, he said. But generally, Florida is not a great solar state, and wind energy is basically nonexistent in Florida. Peninsular Florida is essentially an island with two big transmission lines and two natural gas lines leaving nuclear as one of the options. Glenn said they expect full approval of the Levy plant by December 2014. Were taking steps to maintain nuclear for the long-term of the state, he said. We need an all-ofthe-above approach. He denied advanced cost recovery equated to giving utilities a blank check. Steven Scroggs of Florida Power and Light said advanced cost recovery only paid about 10 percent of a projects cost, but enabled utilities to borrow the necessary money to build plants. The Levy project got a boost last week when the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board rejected a challenge by two environmental groups to the plants final environmental impact statement. On March 1, Progress Energy Florida filed petitions with the Public Service Commission to recover approximately $65 million for the Levy plant and $18.4 million for costs associated with the now-defunct Crystal River area nuclear plant. Those were the adjusted costs incurred in 2012 to be considered for recovery by advanced-cost refunding through a charge on customer electric bills. Glenn: Nuclear power in Floridas future N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER T he first time Ralph Shafer went to an opera, he cried. Its the beauty of the music, he said. Its in a foreign language, but you get the message because of the emotion. I got tears in my eyes and thought, I want to do this! Earlier this year, the tenor baritone got the opportunity, performing as part of the chorus in two operas, A Masked Ball and La Bohme. Before that, despite studying music in college, Shafers varied career never allowed him the time to pursue his love of singing. He worked at a number of social services and teaching jobs that were mostly at night, which meant he wasnt available to attend rehearsals. By the time he retired and moved to Citrus County in 2005, he was ready to pursue his passion with all he had. They say when you retire you should do that thing you always wanted to do but couldnt, he said. For me, thats singing. Currently, Shafer sings with Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, a group of about 170 voices. It was as part of this group that he wound up on an opera stage. I was a season ticketholder to the Florida Orchestra, which performs at the Straz, the Mahaffey in St. Pete and Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, and the Master Chorale performs with them at least twice a year, he said. So, Id go and hear them sing, and I said Id love to be in that group. He realized he finally had the time to pursue what he loved, auditioned for the chorale and was accepted. Then the chorale was invited to perform with the Cleveland Orchestra in Miami. That was my first performance with the Tampa Bay (chorale), and I have to tell you that it was something special, he said. At the last note of the piece, the conductor put his hands down and the audience jumped up and roared to a standing ovation. After that, the chorale was invited to perform with the opera company. The rest, as they say, is history. Shafer said opera goes beyond singing choral music because it involves acting out the part as well as singing the music. Its costumes and movement, affectation and expression and memorizing lyrics in a foreign language. All which, he discovered, he loves. He added that opera soloists have great respect for the chorus, which was a pleasant surprise. He experienced a genuine camaraderie among the cast. He said hed love to do more. I love to sing and I love to make music, and to make music with people who have a very high level of perfection and dedication, he said. When youre with that kind of group, its really inspiring and uplifting. Im a better singer because Im singing with people who are better than I am.

School will commence with the survivors dinner at 5 p.m. and the opening ceremonies at 6 p.m. April 12 and will continue until about noon Saturday, April 13. Currently, 21 teams will seize the field attempting to raise at least $40,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society. We began the Lecanto Relay for Life to pick up that middle part of the county, Herndon said. Our county feels divided sometimes. Lecanto has felt like the pass-through area to get to one side of the county to the other. Revenue raised stays in Citrus County. Programs such as Hope Lodge, Road to Recovery, Look Good ... Feel Better, and Reach to Recovery benefit from funds as well as research, education and treatment. Furthermore, the word relay may be in the title; however, it is anything but a race or marathon. Herndon described it as an 18hour party with survivors, family and community members striving to put an end to cancer. The organized family-friendly, overnight walk consists of participants camping out around the track with each team member taking turns walking. As with all the relays, the public is invited to come out and walk the track or visit the various teams booths and play games or purchase food or other items, with proceeds going to support the American Cancer Society. New this year, a relay pageant for the whole county will begin at 7:30 p.m. and the ever-popular Mr. Relay Contest will take place at 10:30 p.m. Entertainment at the Lecanto event includes Zumba, karaoke, beauty treatments, survivors dinner and a brick-by-brick competition, to name a few. Herndon wants everyone to remember Relay for Lifes purpose: to celebrate, to remember and to fight back. For more information, call Holli Herndon at 352637-3918 or 561-699-4752; visit the Lecanto Relay for Life Facebook page, visit www.relayforlife.org; or email Lecanto Relay for Life at s_tacey99 @yahoo.com. Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at eworthington@ chronicleonline.com or 352-563-5660, ext. 1334. Residents described how they felt trapped with the homes they own because the owner of the land beneath their homes would raise the rent to a new tenant, which scared off homebuyers. They asked Dean for legislation linking lot rent increases to the Consumer Price Index to stabilize a potential owners expectation of future rent expenses. It allows people that have a need to leave death, illness or be closer to family and friends it allows for that to happen, though it still allows for an increase to the park owners as far as an increase in rent, Green said. It may be a little bit restricted; it may be a little bit regulated. But its fair and reasonable. And its also a giant win-win-win for the state of Florida and all of the entrepreneur businesspeople for the trickledown effect of allowing all the changes to happen. Some manufacturedhome owners have faced the prospect of walking away from a home that has no buyer, leaving it to the owners of the park, because a lot rent increase stops sales. The main intent of the bill is to allow people to sell their homes and not have to involuntarily give them away, Green said. This bill S.B. 1168 will allow residents of Florida to sell their homes and generate sales tax and allow them to relocate and allow new people to come in, and when they pay sales tax on coming in, they buy other things. Florida has more mobile homes than any other state 762,227 or 10 percent of the national total, according to the U.S. Census. According to 2011 data, Florida has 9,026,965 housing units. Mobile homes make up 8.5 percent of Floridas housing stock. One out of 12 Florida residences is a manufactured home. S.B. 1168 addresses two types of rental agreements. One is a regular lease that can be renewed and raised after it expires by linking it to the Consumer Price Index. The other is a lifetime agreement. In the early days, to entice people to move to Florida, park owners would offer them a guaranteed lifetime rate never to exceed a certain amount, Green explained. As long as that person lived there, he would pay that low flat rate. After that tenant left, the Consumer Price Index increase would be too low in comparison. It would not be fair and reasonable to the park owners. S.B. 1168 would allow the park owner to offer the next tenant of a lifetime agreement lot site a rate not to exceed the lowest rent being charged in the park, which would be higher than a CPI-linked rate. Coming in at the bottom end of the rent range is fairer to the park owners, Green said. Since the bill was introduced earlier this month, Green has been touring the state explaining it and promoting it to park residents. Im also encouraging them to contact the chairpeople of the three committees that are scheduled to hear the bill, Green said. The bill will be referred to three Senate committees: Regulated Industries, Community Affairs and Judiciary. Green said the bill will help the state recover its standing as a retirement destination. He said Florida slipped below North Carolina, South Carolina and Arizona. Rent stability would entice more people to retire in Florida and increase revenue. If S.B. 1168 passes, the law would settle some longtime disputes in retirement communities. Were not trying to be unfair, Green said. Were not trying to be controlling to the park owners. Were looking at this from every possible aspect.

vehicle to Gardners, where the owner shared a list of missing items and the video. The video and subsequent stills from the video revealed three faces authorities were not familiar with. Thats all investigators had: a grainy video and a list of missing items. Enter Deputy Brian Coleman, community resource officer in the Crystal River substation, inherited the case because one of the detectives was off. He got rolling, logging 80 hours on the case in addition to his regular duties. Luck and tenacity took over rather quickly. Pictures of the suspects were distributed among agency personnel, businesses and other sources. Three days later, we get a call from a business and they said one of the guys was in the store, Coleman said. He rushed over there, but the man had left. However, workers at the business were able to snap a clearer picture of the suspect and wrote down his vehicle tag. After running the information through normal law enforcement investigative tools, it was found that a car bearing that South Carolina license plate was stopped in Tampa recently. Two names came out of that stop: Sean Martin Osborne, 45, of Tampa, and Hector Luis Martinez, 25, of Brandon. With the names, license numbers and pictures plus a vehicle, Coleman was able to issue a nationwide be-on-the-lookout (BOLO) notice. He also found out Osborne was wearing an ankle monitor for a Citrus County violation, and the monitor was able to place him at the Gardner property at the same time as the video was recorded. Three days after Christmas, Osborne was nabbed in Chattanooga, Tenn., and charged with arson, grand theft auto and burglary. He has yet to be extradited to Citrus County. Coleman continued his painstaking investigation of Martinez and the third suspect seen in the video, poring over pawn shop records. He eventually got a hit linking Martinez to pawn transactions in Hillsborough County, for which he was arrested by authorities there. One of the items was a generator belonging to Gardner that Martinez reportedly pawned a day after the burglary. Martinez was arrested Feb, 23 and transferred to the county jail. The third suspects case remains under investigation. It is really gratifying, but it took a lot of time, Coleman said. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

DILIGENT Continued from Page A1 The third suspects case remains under investigation. Forgotten US airship crash recalled 80 years later Associated PressLAKEHURST, N.J. History buffs will gather this week near the New Jersey coast to commemorate a major airship disaster. No, not that one. Newsreel footage and radio announcer Herbert Morrisons plaintive cry, Oh, the humanity! made the 1937 explosion of the Hindenburg at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station probably the best-known crash of an airship. But just four years earlier, a U.S. Navy airship seemingly jinxed from the start and later celebrated in song crashed only about 40 miles away, claiming more than twice as many lives. The USS Akron, a 785foot dirigible, was in its third year of flight when a violent storm sent it plunging tail-first into the Atlantic Ocean shortly after midnight April 4, 1933. No broadcasters, no photographers, no big balls of fire, so who knew? said Nick Rakoncza, a member of the Navy Lakehurst Historical Society. Everybody thinks that the Hindenburg was the worlds greatest (airship) disaster. It was not. A ceremony to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the crash, the deadliest airship disaster on record, is being conducted Thursday at a veterans park where there is a tiny plaque dedicated to the victims. Below it is a small piece of metal from the airship. Few in the area seemed to know about the disaster, let alone the memorial plaque; even a Navy officer sent on an underwater mission to explore the wreckage many years later had not heard of the Akron. Its almost a forgotten accident, said Rick Zitarosa, historian for the Navy Lakehurst Historical Society. The Akron deserves to be remembered. The Akron crashed off the community of Barnegat Light just a few hours after taking off from Lakehurst, killing 73 of the 76 men aboard, largely because the ship had no life vests and only one rubber raft, according to Navy records and the Navy Lakehurst Historical Society. They had been moved to another airship and were never replaced. Lt. Cmdr. Herbert Wiley, Moody Erwin and Richard Deal were pulled from the frigid waters by a German tanker that had been nearby. Erwin and Deal had been hanging on a fuel tank. Wiley was clinging to a board, according to an account he gave to a newspaper the next day. In a newsreel interview, Wiley, standing next to the other survivors, said he was in the control car just before the crash. He said crew members could not see the ocean until they were about 300 feet above the water. The order was given to stand by for a crash, Wiley said. The ship hit the water within 30 seconds of that order and most of us, I believe, we catapulted into the water. Among the casualties was Rear Adm. William Moffett, the first chief of the Bureau of Navy Aeronautics. When the wreckage was found, Zitarosa said, the airship had collapsed to about 25 feet in height. It had originally stood at about 150 feet. It was a catastrophic disintegration of the ship once it hit the water, Zitarosa said. Part of the wreckage was lifted from the sea a few weeks after the accident. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. in Akron, Ohio, had been awarded a Navy contract in 1928 to build the Akron and a second rigid airship, the Macon. Construction of the Akron by the Goodyear-Zeppelin Corp. was completed in 1931. It was plagued by problems from the start. It was involved in three accidents before its final flight, including one in which its tail slammed into the ground several times. Another accident killed two sailors. Some men who died in the Akron had survived the airship crash of the USS Shenandoah less than a year before. A day after the Akron disaster, a blimp sent out to look for bodies malfunctioned and crashed in Barnegat Light, killing two more crew members. A year later, Wiley was the commanding officer on the USS Macon when it was lost in a storm off of Port Sur, Calif., also killing two crew members. Wiley survived, but that was it for him and airships. A plaque and a piece of the USS Akron airship are seen March 21 at a small veterans memorial park in a neighborhood in Manchester Township, N.J. Associated Press The USS Navy Air Cruiser Akron flies over lower Manhattans financial district Nov. 2, 1931, in New York City. The Akron went down in a violent storm off the New Jersey coast. The disaster claimed 73 lives, more than twice as many as the crash of the Hindenburg four years later. The USS Akron, a 785-foot dirigible, was in its third year of flight when a violent storm sent it crashing tail-first into the Atlantic Ocean shortly after midnight April 4, 1933.

J OHN R OGERS Associated PressCLAREMONT, Calif. As he rolls through the front door of the sprawling Claremont Club fitness center and shouts a friendly hello here and there, for just a moment its as if nothing has changed since Hal Hargrave Jr. was the big, friendly teenage gym rat who haunted this place. The burly Hargraves head was filled with dreams of playing college baseball as he strode into the gym, stretched out on a bench and pressed 300 pounds above his body. Again and again. Hes still big and burly, his arms still muscular and he still works out nearly every day. Only these days Hargrave uses that strength to move his wheelchair in and out of the gym, where he still works out 20 hours a week and knows just about everybody in the place. These days, though, Hargraves goal is to get walking again, something he lost the ability to do on July 26, 2007, when he swerved his truck to avoid debris in the road. It flipped four times, the cab collapsing on him and snapping his spine. It left him paralyzed from the neck down. The irony is never lost on Hargrave that he was delivering handicappedaccessible bathroom doors as part of a summer job. If it was a sign to a strapping 17-year-old athlete that his life was headed in the wrong direction, it would seem to have been a particularly harsh one, but Hargrave doesnt see it that way. Some people call me crazy for putting it this way, but I have been given a gift, the talkative, friendly 23-year-old says with a smile over lunch at the gyms small cafe. They see this as an ailment. I dont. He sees it instead as something that gave him a chance to help others, to have his life truly make a difference. It inspired him to create the Be Perfect Foundation, a nonprofit charity that has raised $1.2 million to provide wheelchairs, make homes more accessible and, most importantly, keep more than 100 people in rehabilitation programs they otherwise couldnt afford. All of which would have been pretty impressive if Hargrave had just stopped there. But he didnt. He persuaded the Claremont Club president to turn a racquetball court and a basketball court into a wing for people with paralyzing injuries. Then he got Project Walk, a spinal rehabilitation center where hed been treated, to open its first franchise in this bucolic college town 35 miles east of Los Angeles for those who couldnt make the commute to its San Diego area headquarters. Heres a 17-year-old boy who had a debilitating, life-changing accident, said Mike Alpert, who runs the Claremont Club and whose daughter has known Hargrave since the two were in kindergarten. So many people that go through that would give up. Would be depressed. Would blame everybody else. Heres a young man who just said, I have a calling to change the world and to help people through whats happening to me. And then he goes out and does it! How special is that? Hes an amazing young man, echoes Devorah Lieberman, president of University of La Verne, where Hargrave is a fulltime student. Although he hasnt regained full use of his fingers (he fist bumps rather than shakes hands), hes gotten back enough to take notes on his iPad. He maintains a near-perfect 3.8 grade point average. Lieberman will never forget the first time they met two years ago at a basketball rally. Hargrave, never known to be shy, rolled up and introduced himself. He told her how hed been hurt and she expressed her condolences. And he said to me, DO NOT be sorry! It was a blessing. Then he gave her a Be Perfect bracelet that she wears to this day. Not that the road back from the accident was easy. It was very touch and go the first two weeks, recalled his father, Hal Hargrave Sr., who still chokes up when he talks about what his son has overcome and accomplished. They had him on breathing machines. He got pneumonia. ... We didnt know if he was going to stay with us or not. Hargrave himself thought he would die as he lay trapped in the truck. Those stories about your life passing before you, he says, are true. Although hes big and strong again, nerve damage keeps his body in a near perpetual state of motion, giving the impression hes fidgeting uncomfortably in his chair although he really feels little. Given only a 1 percent to 3 percent chance of walking again, he threw himself into rehabilitation with the same fervor that once made him a high school sports star. Gradually, movement returned to his shoulders, then his arms and hands. Lately, hes started to get some in his legs, as well. Its nothing thats too controlled movement yet, but its coming back and Im doing things that doctors are in disbelief about, he says happily. It was after one of his arduous rehabilitation sessions, where limbs are yanked and twisted and bodies are placed in expensive machinery to simulate walking, that an epiphany led to his foundation. Brian ONeil, an electrician who had suffered a similar injury in a dirtbike crash, told Hargrave he wouldnt see him again. Hed lost his job, was about to lose his house, didnt have insurance and couldnt afford any more rehabilitation. Before he left the center, Hargrave persuaded his father to pick up the cost of ONeils rehabilitation. Then, on the ride home, he decided why not help others as well? He was told that running a foundation wouldnt be easy, especially for a guy going through his own grueling rehabilitation. But he was adamant. He didnt like the word no. And he didnt like the word cant, Hargrave Sr. says, chuckling at the memory of raising the oldest of his four children. ONeil was blown away and still is. For such a young man hes very I cant even find the words to mention the kind of guy Little Hal is, ONeil, using the nickname close friends call Hargrave by, says emotionally. Hes just a great kid. Hargrave scheduled the first of what would become annual fundraisers at the height of the Great Recession and he hoped he might get lucky and raise maybe $30,000. After $250,000 poured in, he thought: Maybe we can do this forever. So he soldiers on, getting up each day, working out, running the foundation, hanging out with friends, going to school. Still a sports fanatic, hes earning a degree in communications with the hope of someday becoming a sports broadcaster. But the foundation will always come first. I had dreams of going off and going to school and becoming a baseball player and doing this and that, he says as he finishes lunch. But when I think back on it, it was so selfish. And now my dreams are much different. My dreams are to keep people in therapy and my dreams are to help other people. Thats what my life is about at this point.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Even with one of the largest hurdles to an immigration overhaul overcome, optimistic lawmakers on Sunday cautioned they had not finished work on a bill that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. The AFL-CIO and the pro-business U.S. Chamber of Commerce reached a deal late Friday that would allow tens of thousands of low-skill workers into the country to fill jobs in construction, restaurants and hotels. Yet despite the unusual agreement between the two powerful lobbying groups, lawmakers from both parties conceded the negotiations were not finished. With the agreement between business and labor, every major policy issue has been resolved, said Sen. Chuck Schumer, the New York Democrat who brokered the laborbusiness deal. But it hasnt taken the form of a bill, and the eight senators searching for a compromise havent met about the potential breakthrough. We havent signed off, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. There are a few details yet. But conceptually, we have an agreement between business and labor, between ourselves that has to be drafted, he added. Yet just before lawmakers began appearing on Sunday shows, Sen. Marco Rubio warned he was not ready to lend his name and political clout to such a deal without hashing out the details. Reports that the bipartisan group of eight senators have agreed on a legislative proposal are premature, said Rubio, a Florida Republican who is among the lawmakers working on legislation. Rubio, a CubanAmerican who is weighing a presidential bid in 2016, is a leading figure inside his party. Lawmakers will be closely watching any deal for his approval and his skepticism about the process did little to encourage optimism. Rubio, who is the groups emissary to conservatives, called the agreement a starting point, but said 92 senators from 43 states havent yet been involved in the process. The detente between the nations leading labor federation and the powerful business lobbying group still needs senators approval, including a nod from Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican whose previous efforts came up short. I think were on track. ... But as Sen. Rubio correctly says, we have said we will not come to final agreement til we look at all of the legislative language, and hes correctly pointing out that that language hasnt been fully drafted, Schumer said. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., also noted the significance of the truce between labor and business but added this wasnt yet complete. That doesnt mean weve crossed every i or dotted every t, or vice versa, said Flake, who is among the eight lawmakers working on the deal. Schumer negotiated the deal between AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka and Chamber of Commerce head Tom Donohue during a late-Friday phone call. Under the compromise, the government would create a new W visa for low-skill workers who would earn wages paid to Americans or the prevailing wages for the industry theyre working in, whichever is higher. The Labor Department would determine prevailing wage based on customary rates in specific localities, so that it would vary from city to city. The proposed measure would secure the border, crack down on employers, improve legal immigration and create a 13-year pathway to citizenship for the millions of illegal immigrants already here. Its a major second-term priority of President Barack Obamas and would usher in the most dramatic changes to the faltering U.S. immigration system in more than two decades. This is a legacy item for him. There is no doubt in my mind that he wants to pass comprehensive immigration reform, said David Axelrod, a longtime political confidant of Obama. The new program would fill needs employers say they have that are not currently met by U.S. immigration programs. Most industries dont have a good way to hire a steady supply of foreign workers because theres one temporary visa program for low-wage nonagricultural workers, but its capped at 66,000 visas per year and is only supposed to be used for seasonal or temporary jobs. Associated PressRENO, Nev. Two Nevada youth football coaches are facing criminal charges in connection with a bloody fist fight in front of dozens of players and parents after a game in northeastern Nevada. The coaches are accused of chestbumping, punching and yelling obscenities at each other during the Oct. 16 midfield fight in the casino town of West Wendover along the Utah line. Prosecutors filed misdemeanor battery and disturbing the peace charges last week against Luis Perez, 53, and Frank Sanchez, 38, in West Wendover Justice Court. The fight stemmed from the final play of a game that involved 10to 13-year-old boys and was won by Perezs team, police said. Perez told investigators he asked his quarterback to kneel down with the ball to end the game, but Sanchez tried to get his bigger players to hurt the quarterback. Sanchez denied the allegation and maintained he acted in self-defense during the fight. Theres no association or league, youth or adult, that will accept that kind of behavior, Robert Loncar, head of the Great Basin Youth Football League, told The Associated Press. The game was over and there was no reason for that. They let their tempers get the best of them. Its just a very poor example. The kids watch everything and we adults need to be role models, he added. Both coaches have unlisted phone numbers and could not be reached for comment. It was not immediately clear whether they had attorneys. While witnesses disagree over who threw the first punch, they say the fight began after Perez and Sanchez got in a heated argument over the final play. The two exchanged punches until the fight was broken up, according to witnesses. Both coaches refused medical attention at the time. Perez suffered a bloody nose and swollen eye, while Sanchez had no immediate visible injuries, police said. The coaches, who have been permanently banned from the league, are scheduled to be arraigned May 8 in justice court. Sanchez, in a statement to police, acknowledged he regretted the fight. I feel really bad for my action that (night), he wrote. I thought we were going to exchange words and that was all. We both made mistakes that night. We both hurt the sport and kids that we love. For that I will willfully (accept) any action against me ... I believe that both of us made a huge mistake and hopefully we are forgiven by the kids and parents and community someday.A8 M ONDAY, A PRIL 1, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE N ATION 000EIKH Visit one of our participating Battle of the Burgers restaurants TODAY!

Page A10 MONDAY, APRIL 1, 2013 Wealthy few leads to anemic economy The Living paycheck to paycheck letter from Mr. Lawrence has me wondering if he really understands basic economics. Consider: 1. Research on human motivation indicates people would prefer to work than to do nothing (Think about all the volunteer workers in this county!); 2. There are more people than there are paid jobs, so there are going to be people who cant find work and must do nothing; 3. When money is distributed through unemployment checks, food stamps, Social Security, etc., to those who have very little of it, all of that money is spent which is a good thing, because it continues to circulate throughout the economy and helps the economy to grow; 4. When money is distributed through tax breaks to the wealthy (who already have a lot of it), some of that money is invested in foreign countries, some goes to foreign banks, or is just taken out of circulation and squirreled away. The point is: It is taken out of circulation, which hurts our economy; 5. Anyone who is smart enough to be wealthy will not invest in job creation if they cant sell a product because the masses of people do not have money to purchase the product. No amount of tax breaks for the wealthy will change that. A high percentage of people in Citrus County are middleclass. They have seen their salaries cut (teachers), pensions reduced or eliminated (government workers), or they have seen their jobs disappear completely. That does not help private businesses to flourish. Businesses are hurt when people have less money to spend. The more we shift our countrys resources into the hands of a few, the more slowly our economy will grow. If we cut one segment of the economy (government spending), we need to cut the other segment as well by increasing taxes on large corporations and the wealthy to ensure a healthy economy. Nancy Nehring, Ph.D., ASID interior designer Crystal River Thanks for attending dance The Inverness Lions held a dance Feb. 9, at Dudleys Auction House to raise money for applicants in the community who are in need of eye exams, glasses or eye surgery. We had a very nice turnout and everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks to club members who worked to set up and clean afterwards, baked brownies for sale or participated in other ways to make this event successful; to all who donated gifts for the Chinese auction; to Chris and Robert Dudley for the use of their establishment and their time; to Catfish Johnny and the Roaring Fever Band from Lake Panasoffkee and their many friends. We could not have done it without the help of all of you who made this event so successful. We thank you very much for all you did. Madeline Gendron chairwoman Robert Emerson president, Inverness Lions Club D ear Whomever is in Charge of Customer Service for DirecTV: All I wanted was to watch the game. I was back in my hotel room after a long day and I figured, what better way to unwind? Now, the game wasnt available on the hotel channels, but Ive got that League Pass service you offer and one of its perks supposedly is that you can watch the game right on the ol iPad. So I got out the ol iPad and I fired up the app and I retrieved the password and I tried to sign in and nothing happened, so I called you guys and the robot lady answered and told me to OPRIMA NUMERO DOS if I wanted to conduct my business in Spanish, which I didnt, so I didnt and I said yes when the robot lady asked if I was a subscriber and I gave her my phone number when she asked for it and then she asked me to tell her what I wanted, and I tried to explain twice but she didnt get it, so I told her I had a question about League Pass and she gave me this long spiel about how I could buy League Pass, which I didnt need to do, since I already had it, so I asked the robot lady to connect me with technical support and she said she would and thats about when she hung up on me, so I called again and I went through the whole thing again and this time I got to a human being who listened to my problem and what I had done to solve it, expressed remorse, then told me to do the same things I had done, which had not worked the first time, and when I did and it didnt work again, this person transferred me to another person who also expressed remorse and then, reading from a manual, told me to do the thing I had done, which hadnt worked the first two times, and when I explained this, transferred me to a third person who dutifully expressed remorse and quickly concluded he could not help me and told me to contact the NBA. By this point, the game was at halftime. I gave up. So anyway, Mr. or Ms. Whomever is in Charge, heres the thing: Can I talk to a human being next time? Ill pay extra if you simply have the phone answered by someone with a pulse. Not just you. I make the same offer to my cellphone company, my Internet provider, the electric company and the bank. I am willing to pay more if it means that when I call your company, my call will be answered by an actual, knowledgeable human being who will listen to my problem and solve it. That doesnt seem much to ask. Once upon a time, it wasnt. But that was before technology made our lives simpler and more convenient. It was before the age turned distant and impersonal and human beings became cost inefficient. It was before someone got the bright idea to let robots answer the phone. Meaning not just machines that use voice recognition software to misunderstand what youre asking for and route your call to the wrong department, but also those human robots who, once they do get your call, read mechanically from a script that requires them to express remorse for your problem, explain why they cant fix your problem, try to upsell you on some new service that does not address your problem, then ask if you are satisfied with how they have resolved your problem. Those old movies that told us how machines would take over the world had it wrong. One does not see human skulls crushed beneath robot feet. No, one just sees human spirit crushed beneath robot customer service. One misses the days when companies employed actual people to serve actual people and if they were occasionally surly, clueless or unhelpful, they were at least real capable of acknowledging your presence. How much to get that back? Seriously. You could market it as a premium package. DirecTV Pulse Now With Real Humans! Give me a call and lets discuss.

The statistics are sobering. Automobile accidents are the No. 1 cause of death among teenagers. In 2010, the last year for which there are full statistics, about 3,115 people in the United States age 13 to 19 were killed and about 282,000 were treated in emergency rooms for injuries from auto crashes. Per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are three times more likely than all other ages combined to be involved in a fatal automobile accident, and in six out of 10 fatal accidents involving teenagers, the driver of the car was a teen. In Citrus County, a cooperative agreement between the school system and the sheriffs office, which was worked out following a crash that took the lives of two teens, allows high school juniors and seniors to take at no cost a Florida Sheriffs Association driver training program called the Teen Driver Challenge. In addition to learning defensive driving skills and how to respond to driving emergencies, there is an added incentive. Taking the course is required to get a parking permit at county high schools, and students can take the day off from school to attend the course. While this is a benefit, it is also the only leverage the school system has to encourage students to take the course, because it is not required to get a license. Since the program began in Citrus County in 2007, nearly 2,500 teens have taken the course, and no student who took the course has been killed in an automobile accident. The program seems to have a positive impact on driving safety of those who participate. While planning for the program was under way when the two young women died in a terrible accident, the pain of two families who lost daughters in an accident that could have been avoided helped drive the program from planning into reality. Today, young drivers are learning the skills to help them avoid becoming another grim statistic. The program is now established, and it is saving lives. It is a tribute to the families of these two young women, the school system and the sheriffs office that this personal tragedy helped promote a program that saves lives year after year.

Make changes to political system For most of my adult life, I have considered myself a Republican (no more); however, I do not understand where they plan to lead this country. I have several ideas to share: They are promoting increasing the minimum age for Social Security. Do theyreally think people of age can continue to fulfill jobs where they do hard labor like climbing utility poles, standing on your feet over 12 hours a day, or carrying heavy loads? I feel they could contain the high costs of Medicare in two ways: (1) Have a single-payer system for all people who have the authority to limit excessive costs for equipment, medication, laboratory and imaging fees to name a few. Consider the cost of a power scooter. It was estimated they cost about $700 to build; however, these companies bill Medicare for $4,000 to $7,000 each. I think reasonable profit margins would save a lot of money. I know a lot of people question Medicaid costs. I also think we could lessen this burden by covering all citizens with a basic health care policy and applying copays for misuse of urgent care or emergency room care. All people need to have a primary-care physician; they can take care of most needs at a lower fee than specialists and lessen the need for more expensive interventions. Also, when considering elected officials, I thought our political system says they are elected to represent we the people why do they bow to unelected people like Karl Rove and Grover Norquist over the people? We as citizens and consumers also have the responsibility to see what our elected officials are promoting and if, indeed, they are not representing us, vote them out of office while we can. Far too many public servants have priorities set by (1) the political party leaders, (2) constant fundraising for re-election, and (3) answering to lobbyist or other monetary influences. This is not representational government of the people for the people in my book. And as consumers, promote American jobs by supporting products made in the United States. Sandy Engelman Inverness Takers vs. makersUnlike Barack Obama, I will admit it when I misspeak. I misspoke when I said there were 11 states with more people on welfare than working. What I should have said is there are 11 states with more takers than makers. The quote came from William Baldwins article Do You Live in A Death Spiral State? published in Forbes magazine. I could just blow it off like Obama and say Its the same thing, but that wouldnt be fair. Another way to say it is there are 11 states where the number of citizens in the government sector outnumber the number of citizens in the private sector, and that would be very accurate even if there is some overlap. The point is that big overreaching government is doomed to failure. Baldwin defines takers as government workers, government retirees and welfare recipients, and throws in one person for every $100,000 in unfunded state pension fund obligations. When you look at a state like California that has $167 billion dollars of unfunded pension obligations, that does skew the comparison. Since it is a financial article, his point is dont buy a house there or invest in their bonds. Lets take California and look at it closely. It is one of the states that Baldwin labels a fiscal hellhole, a state in a death spiral. I like California; Ive lived there three times in my life and enjoyed it every time. I couldnt afford it today. Money has no meaning there. I recently looked at a cute little 1,400-square-foot house in Half Moon Bay on a 4,500square-foot lot that listed for $750,000. It was a half a block from the ocean but it had no view of it. California has a population of 38,041,430 people. About 1 of every 8 Americans live in California. They have an average per capita income of $29,634, and a median household income of $61,632.With a GDP of just under $2 trillion, California would rank No. 9 in the world in GDP if it was a country. Thats down from a No. 5 ranking 10 years ago. California has the highest average salary for state employees in the country at $70,777. I have seen it listed as just over $60,000. But Ill use the higher number. When you compare either one to the average salary of $29,634, you begin to see the problem: State government is big business and pays very well. An article in the National Review calls California the nations welfare queen: The state accounts for one-third of Americas welfare recipients, though it only contains one-eighth of the population. It has more welfare recipients than the next eight states combined. Its very hard to find information on how much California spends on welfare. There are hundreds of websites telling you how to apply for it, but nearly none actually totaling up the numbers. They like to list the numbers for individual programs and there are many, but it falls to you to add them up, I came up with $11.59 billion a year. Of interest is $69 million of that appears to have been spent on vacations as tracked by ATM withdrawals on the state-issued debit cards. Las Vegas led with $12 million, followed by Hawaii and cruise ships. Of that, $11 million went to ATM charges for not using the correct ATM machines. Harley Lawrence Homosassa Embrace God, Constitution, guns Respectfully written to Mr. Cary McMullen: I hope your statement that Christians who cling to God might actually require them to throw away their guns and turn their backs on the Constitution is your way of joking or some type of light detestation for Mrs. Palin. If we turn our backs on what made and is this country, we have nothing and deserve nothing. I, as many, believe in God, America, our Constitution, all of the Amendments and the freedoms they bring. Some of us will and have fought and died to protect the very fiber and being of the great U.S. Constitution. I believe this country is in trouble, and if the people in America do not get more involved to educate themselves of politics, the laws, Constitution, what is happening around the world and actually read and know our founding history, stand up, speak out and replace most of the useless people in power and put forth less government involvement we will end up enslaved by government, and the controlling politicians who think it is a lifetime job to rule instead of working for the people, by the people, will rule as autocrats. Not everyone has to agree, but I believe the majority will: Embrace your God, the Constitution and your right to keep and bear arms. To protect this nation and cling to its Constitution is not a rant and those who believe so need to be more open-minded, tolerant and educated on the founding of this country no matter your faith, politics and beliefs. Don B. Powell Hernando Doctors responded when needed I would like to send my sincere thank you and appreciation to our affiliated physicians Dr. William Gelinas, Dr. John Royalty and Dr. Shaun Saint for their willingness on Feb. 25 to personally respond to the multiple vehicle accidents that occurred on U.S. 19 in front of Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. I cannot recall experiencing numerous different motor vehicle accidents on the same morning in front of our hospital due to four different causes. Your presence and guidance was calming to the hospital associates who responded as well as to the law enforcement/fire/emergency medical crew members that worked each scene. I also commend our hospital team for its efforts in responding quickly and compassionately to those in need. To our law enforcement/fire/ emergency medical crews, I thank you for efficiently and effectively managing the scene. I appreciate everything that you do each and every day for our community. We will be sharing for some time the story of how traffic was closed in both directions so that the trauma helicopter could land on the highway and rapidly transport one of the victims. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the injured and their family members, yet our appreciation for your dedication is heartfelt and I wanted to express those feelings with each of you.

Mayflower Police Chief Robert Satkowski said an ExxonMobil pipeline sprung a leak Friday in the small city about 20 miles northwest of Little Rock. Suspect sought in abduction of girl, 10 LOS ANGELES A transient with a long criminal record is being sought in the kidnapping of a 10-yearold girl who was snatched from her San Fernando Valley home before dawn last week and abandoned hours later in front of a hospital. Police identified Tobias Dustin Summers, 30, as a suspect Saturday, but they couldnt elaborate on the motiveor what led them to him. About 40 detectives have been investigating since the girl was abducted from her home at around 3 a.m. Wednesday. As of right now, there are no new developments on the case, Officer Norma Eisenman, a police spokeswoman, said Sunday. The girl was found about 12 hours after she was abducted, wandering near a Starbucks several miles away. She was barefoot, had bruises and scratches, and wasnt wearing the same clothes she had on when she vanished. Four hurt in crash, attack at WalmartSAN JOSE, Calif. Authorities said four people were hurt when a driver crashed his vehicle into a Walmart in California and assaulted people in the store. San Jose police said after the crash on Sunday, the driver got out his vehicle and used a blunt object to attack people. Its not known how badly those attacked were hurt, but one person suffered what police described as serious injuries. The driver of the vehicle was arrested when officers arrived. His name has not yet been released. WILLIAM BOTTOMLEY /WXII Three people were killed Sunday in a 75-vehicle pileup on Interstate 77 near the Virginia-North Carolina border. Three killed in 75-vehicle pileup GALAX, Va. About 75 vehicles crashed Sunday along a mountainous, foggy stretch of interstate near the Virginia-North Carolina border, killing three people and injuring more than 20 others, police said. Traffic backed up for about 8 miles in the southbound lanes of I-77 in southwest Virginia. Authorities closed the northbound lanes so fire trucks, ambulances and police could get to the wreck. Several vehicles caught fire in the wreck, but the blaze was put out, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said.

Michael Faber, who organizes the fair, told The Associated Press that an insect expert at a nearby university was able to train 50 fleas in time for the first show Sunday. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressKAUFMAN, Texas Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland took no chances after one of his assistant prosecutors was gunned down two months ago. McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere he went and was extra careful when answering the door at his home. Im ahead of everybody else because, basically, Im a soldier, the 23-year Army veteran said in an interview less than two weeks ago. On Saturday, he and his wife were found shot to death in their home just outside the town of Forney, about 20 miles from Dallas. While investigators gave no motive for the killings, Forney Mayor Darren Rozell said: It appears this was not a random act. Everybodys a little on edge and a little shocked, he said. The slayings came less than two weeks after Colorados prison chief was shot to death at his front door, apparently by an exconvict, and a couple of months after Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was killed in a parking lot a block from his courthouse office. No arrests have been made in Hasses slaying Jan. 31. McLelland, 63, is the 13th prosecutor killed in the U.S. since the National Association of District Attorneys began keeping count in the 1960s. Sheriff David Byrnes would not give details of how the killings unfolded and said there was nothing to indicate the slayings were connected to Hasses. The people in my line of work are going to have to get better at it, McLelland said of dealing with the danger, because theyre going to need it more in the future. The number of attacks on prosecutors, judges and senior law enforcement officers in the U.S. has spiked in the past three years, according to Glenn McGovern, an investigator with the Santa Clara County, Calif., district attorneys office who tracks such cases. McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, 65, were the parents of two daughters and three sons. One son is a police officer in Dallas.

Compiled by CJ Risak and Jon-Michael Soracchi Jon-Michael Soracchi ON POINT Chronicle file photos Michigan crushes Floridas Final Four hopes Gators start slow, never lead in 79-59 loss Associated PressARLINGTON, Texas Trey Burke and Michigan had the perfect response for everyone who said they were too young or not tough enough to make it all the way to Atlanta. The championship trophy for the South Region is headed back to Ann Arbor, while another fabulous group of young Wolverines is going to the Final Four. Led by Burke and sharp-shooting guard Nik Stauskas, one of three freshmen starters, Michigan controlled Florida from start to finish in a 79-59 win Sunday. It means the world 20 years has passed and we havent been on that stage yet, said Tim Hardaway Jr., the junior elder statesman in the starting lineup. The last time Michigan made it this far was the Fab Five era of the early 1990s, what until now had been considered the programs glory years. Might be time to start rethinking that. Once they got ahead Sunday, the Wolverines (30-7) maintained a double-digit lead against the experienced Gators (29-8), who won the regular-season title in the Southeastern Conference, but lost in a regional final for the third straight year. Weve almost become numb to it now. Been here before, Gators junior center Patric Young said. I just really wish we were out there cutting the nets down. Stauskas scored 22 points while making all six of his 3-pointers. Burke, the South Regions most outstanding player, scored 15 points, and 6-foot-10 freshman Mitch McGary had 11 points and nine rebounds. When the game ended, Burke and several of his teammates went to the opposite Points wins, makes Masters Associated PressHUMBLE, Texas D.A. Points came back from a long rain delay and made four pars, the last one giving him a one-shot victory in the Houston Open and a trip to the Masters. With a putter he once borrowed from his mother and never returned, Points rolled in a putt from just outside 12 feet on the final hole to polish off a 6under 66 and avoid a sudden-death playoff with Masters-bound Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel. It was quite a turnaround for Points, whose only other PGA Tour win was at Pebble Beach two years ago with actor Bill Murray along for the laughs. He started the year by missing the cut seven times in nine tournaments. He arrived at Redstone Golf Club having not broken 70 in last nine rounds. But he stayed in the hunt after opening with a 64, and he kept his calm when he returned to the golf course after a rain delay of nearly three hours. Thank you for staying, Points said to the sparse gallery in the bleachers as he walked off the green. Stenson birdied his last two holes for a 66 before the storms rolled across Houston, and while he came up one shot short, he moved up to No. 42 in the world ranking to earn an invitation to the Masters. Horschel was on the 18th tee when play was halted, and then had to wait some more for his turn to hit on the tough driving hole. He split the middle, found the green and two-putted for par to join Stenson in the clubhouse lead. They waited around for a playoff that wasnt necessary when Points saved par on his last two holes. Ive been having a really Openers feature Strasburg, rivalries, AL vs NL Associated PressThe Kansas City Royals have been absent from the playoffs since the day Billy Butler was born. Theyve barely had a winning season in the last two decades. Theyve often lost 100 games in a year. And yet, buoyed by the best record in spring training, hope abounds for the Royals, for most everybody putting on a big league uniform. Theres no reason we shouldnt be better, said Butler, the Royals All-Star slugger. How much better that is? Im not a mind reader. Im not a projector. Ah, opening day. The hot dogs taste better, the boxscores mean more and most every team thinks its just a break or two away from reaching the World Series. A dozen games were set for today across the majors. Star pitchers Justin Verlander, Stephen Strasburg and Adam Wainwright try to get off to great starts, old rivalries are renewed at Yankee Stadium and Dodger Stadium, and a quirky interleague schedule unfolds. No snow is in the forecast for any ballpark on April Fools Day, but freezing temperatures are expected at Target Field in Minnesota when Verlander and the AL champion Tigers take on the Twins. Its going to be cold, but Ive pitched in that kind of weather before, Verlander said. I dont think about it. Its always cold in Detroit on opening day. The season started Sunday night in Houston when the Astros, who shifted from the National League to the American League during the winter, hosted the Texas Rangers. Long the site of baseballs traditional opener, Cincinnati was going to have a new look today. Thats when Josh Hamilton and his new Los Angeles Angels teammates visit Cincinnati in the first interleague matchup this season. The Astros move left 15 teams in each league, meaning an AL vs. NL matchup most every day this season. It is very strange, Reds manager Dusty Baker said. On both coasts, there was a very familiar look Red Sox-Yankees and Giants-Dodgers. Mariano Rivera was set for his final opening day when the banged-up Yankees hosted Boston. The New York closer is among several big names who missed most or even all of last year Troy Tulowitzki, Victor Martinez and John Lackey are in that group. Injured stars Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira wont be in pinstripes for the first pitch. Its still the Yankees, its still going to be a good lineup, Boston starter Jon Lester said. Theyre missing a few of their big guys, but anybody that fills in for them, its like what I said, theyre going to put professional at-bats together and still its not going to be a walk in the park. No easy decisions, either, for Boston manager John Farrell, one of six new skippers in the majors this year. At Dodger Stadium, Matt Cain starts for the World Series champion San Francisco Giants when they play Los Angeles in the century-old rivalry. It will mark the 64th season at the microphone for Dodgers announcer Vin Scully.

B2 M ONDAY, A PRIL 1, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE B ASEBALL Hamilton, Angels set to take on Tigers Associated PressJosh Hamilton joined forces with Albert Pujols and Mike Trout in Los Angeles, primed to pry the American League pennant from Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and Victor Martinez in Detroit. Not so fast, big boys. The Toronto Blue Jays want in, too, and they brought a bevy of All-Stars, led by knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and shortstop Jose Reyes, north of the border for their shot. Tampa Bay locked up Evan Longoria for six more years. The White Sox signed young ace Chris Sale for five. The AL West champion Oakland Athletics are hoping Yoenis Cespedes can keep them on top in a loaded division. One thing is certain: A bunch of swaggering bats are ready to give the Houston Astros a rude welcome to the American League. A look at the AL in predicted order of finish: EAST TAMPA BAY RAYS The spendthrift Rays opened their checkbook to keep Longoria for six more seasons and $100 million. Now, he must stay healthy if light-hitting Tampa Bay is going to make a run in this hefty division. Longoria missed 74 games last season and the Rays went 41-44 without him. Led by AL Cy Young Award winner David Price and arrow-pointing closer Fernando Rodney, the Rays will be tough to beat no matter how many runs they score. Even with the departure of James Shields and Wade Davis, this staff is deep, and youngsters Jeremy Hellickson, Alex Cobb and Matt Moore are only improving. TORONTO BLUE JAYS The Blue Jays proved this winter how they think the 20th anniversary of Joe Carters World Series-clinching homer in 1993 should be celebrated with their first trip back to the playoffs since that dramatic win. GM Alex Anthopoulos went on a trading spree, unloading spare parts and prospects for Dickey, the NL Cy Young Award winner, Reyes, All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera and former aces Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle. The dynamic Reyes and Cabrera, returning from a 50-game suspension, should set the table for Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. NEW YORK YANKEES The aging Yankees came into camp in poor health and things quickly got worse. Theyll start the season with Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Phil Hughes on the disabled list. New York will count on spare parts such as Vernon Wells, Lyle Overbay and Brennan Boesch, oft-injured Travis Hafner and Kevin Youkilis to keep Brett Gardner and Ichiro Suzuki zipping around the bases until the big hitters return. But a pitching staff led by CC Sabathia, whos coming back from offseason elbow surgery, and closer Mariano Rivera, returning from a torn ACL, could help this club to their 18th trip to the postseason in 19 years. BOSTON RED SOX The one-year experiment with Bobby Valentine a bust, Boston turned to its old pitching coach John Farrell to guide the club out of last place (69-93). The Red Sox brought in Ryan Dempster. They need Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz to return to form, and John Lackey to be effective after missing last season because of elbow surgery. Boston was beset by injuries last year. A full season from Jacoby Ellsbury not to mention another MVP-caliber season like he had in 2011 would go a long way to helping an offense that could be without David Ortiz (heels) for a time at the start of the season. BALTIMORE ORIOLES The Orioles made a stunning turnaround last season, going from a team that lost 93 games to winning a wild-card spot with a 93-69 record Baltimores first winning season in 15 years. And they did it with exuberance, racking up wins in 16 straight extra-inning games and going 29-9 in one-run games, taking the Yankees to a fifth game in the division series. The luck could run out, though, in the rugged East. Jim Johnsons 51 saves were a big reason why the Orioles won so many close ones. Can he repeat the performance in his second year as a full-time closer? CENTRAL DETROIT TIGERS The Tigers feel they have some unfinished business to take care of after being so handily swept by the San Francisco Giants, and the only thing that could keep them from a return trip to the World Series is their bullpen. Improving a lineup anchored by Triple Crown winner Cabrera and Fielder sounds difficult, but Detroit did it. Martinez is back from the disabled list and Torii Hunter is here to provide a potent lineup with even more punch. Justin Verlander leads a solid rotation with Max Scherzer and late-season addition Anibal Sanchez. But who will close after Jose Valverdes meltdown in the playoffs? CHICAGO WHITE SOX The White Sox made a surprising run under first-year manager Robin Ventura, leading the division into September before fading. Theyve locked up Sale with a five-year, $32.5 million contract, re-signed a rejuvenated Jake Peavy and brought in Jeff Keppinger to help boost a league-worst .221 average in the No. 2 hole. KANSAS CITY ROYALS Trading away their top prospect, outfielder Wil Myers, for pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis was a big gamble for the Royals to make. But along with Ervin Santana, the three are being counted on to turn around the Royals biggest problem area: starting pitching. If Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer and Jeff Francoeur can rebound at the plate, then the Royals could surprise some people and end streak of nine straight losing seasons. CLEVELAND INDIANS The Indians spent money this winter, all right. Will it help? Hard to say. No matter how many runs Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn, Drew Stubbs and Mark Reynolds produce for new manager Terry Francona, the starting rotation is still a problem. MINNESOTA TWINS Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau appear to be at full health, but the Twins appear headed for a third straight last-place finish in the Central because their rotation is such a question mark with newcomer Mike Pelfrey coming off Tommy John surgery, Scott Diamond still rehabbing after minor arm surgery and Kevin Correia getting hit hard this spring. WEST TEXAS RANGERS After an embarrassing collapse in the final week of the season and a loss in the wild-card game, the Rangers irked some fans. They didnt open their wallet to keep Hamilton or Mike Napoli and traded the teams career hits leader, Michael Young, to the Phillies. Theres no panic in Texas, though, and rightly so. The Rangers lineup is still formidable, with MVP candidate Adrian Beltre, Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz. Texas might not be able to match the Angels run for run, but it will outpitch Los Angeles. Matt Harrison and Yu Darvish, with 16 wins as a major league rookie last year, lead a deep rotation. Joe Nathan returned to form as the closer. LOS ANGELES ANGELS Fans will be sticking to their seats when the hitters are taking their hacks, but when Jered Weavers not on the mound the concession lines could get a little long. Weavers an ace and C.J. Wilson can be a formidable No. 2, although he had an up-anddown first season in California. After that, who knows? OAKLAND ATHLETICS The As rode a young pitching staff five rookies at times after Bartolo Colon was suspended for 50 games for a drug violation and the surprising performances by players such as Brandon Moss and Josh Donaldson to the West title. For Oakland to pull off another stunner in this division, its going to need ace-in-the-making Brett Anderson to remain healthy and the veteran Colon to help bolster the young staff. SEATTLE MARINERS Step one in the Mariners long-term health is taken care of: they locked up 2010 Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez with a $175 million, seven-year contract. Now, they need everything else to follow. Seattle improved one of baseballs worst offenses by bringing in Kendrys Morales, Michael Morse, Jason Bay and Raul Ibanez. HOUSTON ASTROS The inexperienced, overmatched Astros are going to be fodder for the big bats at the top of the division. Still, GM Jeff Luhnow has the team headed in a better direction. This season, though, Houston could become the first team since the New York Mets from 1962-65 to lose at least 100 games for three straight years. 2013 MLB season outlook A MERICAN L EAGUEPREVIEW N ATIONALL EAGUEPREVIEW Associated PressOnce Sergio Romo struck out Miguel Cabrera to end the World Series, the chase was on. The Upton brothers were reunited in Atlanta. Zack Greinke signed a big freeagent deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Arizona remade its club with fiery manager Kirk Gibson in mind. Washington and Cincinnati each traded for a leadoff hitter, and Philadelphia added Michael Young to its already potent lineup. Romo and the San Francisco Giants begin the year on top, but there is no shortage of potential challengers in the leaner National League. A look at the NL in predicted order of finish: EAST WASHINGTON NATIONALS With Stephen Strasburg and NL Rookie of the Year Bryce Harper slated for a full season for the first time, theres a lot to love about the loaded Nationals. Strasburg went 15-6 with a 3.16 ERA in 2012 before he was shut down after 159 1/3 innings out of concern for his arm in his first season back from Tommy John surgery. Harper also gets a full year after he began last season in the minors. Dan Haren, who has won at least 12 games in each of the last eight seasons, joins the strong rotation. ATLANTA BRAVES Even with B.J. and Justin Upton in the fold, the key to Atlantas season could be the return of catcher Brian McCann following surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He wont be ready for the start of the season, making Gerald Laird the likely openingday starter, but Atlanta is hoping for a return to the form that made him one of the majors top catchers. The trade for Jordan Walden got lost in the shuffle during the Braves busy offseason, but the right-hander should make one of baseballs best bullpens even better. PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES There is plenty of talent in Philly. The question hanging over the Phillies key players is can they stay on the field enough to make a difference. Ace right-hander Roy Halladay was hampered by lower back and shoulder problems last year. New right fielder Delmon Young will begin the season on the DL, and key sluggers Ryan Howard and Chase Utley have dealt with major injuries in recent years. Michael Young should provide a steady presence at third base and speedy center fielder Ben Revere came over in a trade with Minnesota. Mike Adams will help the Phillies get the ball to Jonathan Papelbon, who saved 38 games in his first year with Philadelphia. NEW YORK METS All-Star third baseman David Wright committed to New York by agreeing to an eightyear, $138 million deal over the winter. He may have to wait a while to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. NL Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey was traded to Toronto in December, bringing back a group of prospects but making it all the more difficult for the Mets to contend this year. Jason Bay was cut loose, leaving behind an inexperienced outfield. MIAMI MARLINS There should be plenty of nice seats available for the second season at Marlins Park after Miami traded away many of its best players over the winter, angering the teams fan base in South Florida. Giancarlo Stanton is the biggest remaining star, but he likely wont see much to hit with no other major threats in the lineup. Top prospect Christian Yelich had a big spring and could make his major league debut this season. CENTRAL CINCINNATI REDS Joey Votto was still one tough out when he returned last season following left knee surgery. But his power was noticeably absent when the Reds were eliminated by the Giants in the first round of the playoffs. Fast forward to this spring, when the 2010 NL MVP felt so good that he played for Canada in the World Baseball Classic. Todd Frazier gets third base all to himself after hitting .273 with 19 homers, and shortstop Zack Cozart looks to improve on his .246 average from his rookie season. ST. LOUIS CARDINALS No more Chris Carpenter, who is sidelined by a careerthreatening arm injury. No Rafael Furcal, either. He went down with a season-ending elbow injury during spring training. And starting pitcher Kyle Lohse left in free agency. While St. Louis had a rough offseason, there are reasons for hope. Sluggers Matt Holliday, Allen Craig and Carlos Beltran remain a part of a dangerous lineup, and bright young arms Trevor Rosenthal, Shelby Miller and Joe Kelly could have an impact in the rotation and bullpen. PITTSBURGH PIRATES Andrew McCutchen is coming off a breakthrough performance, and the pressure is on to come up with an appropriate sequel in 2013. The All-Star center fielder hit .327 with 31 homers and 96 RBIs last year, helping Pittsburgh contend for much of the summer before another late fade sent the Pirates to their 20th straight losing season. The big offseason acquisition was All-Star catcher Russell Martin, who signed a $17 million, two-year deal as a free agent. Closer Joel Hanrahan was traded to Boston, leaving journeyman Jason Grilli to pick up the slack. MILWAUKEE BREWERS Milwaukee got off to a terrible start last year, then closed with a 27-13 push that nearly got the team back into the playoffs. The prolific lineup that produced an NL-best 776 runs returns largely intact, with speed in Carlos Gomez and Norichika Aoki and power in Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez. Then there is Ryan Braun, who can do it all. But the biggest problem for Milwaukee could be the rotation beyond Yovani Gallardo, which is largely unproven. It got a boost late in spring training when Lohse agreed to a $33 million, three-year contract. CHICAGO CUBS The Cubs are encouraged by the progress of prospects Albert Almora, Jorge Soler and Javier Baez. And thats going to have to be enough for now, because the rebuilding project under Theo Epstein is still at least a year away. Edwin Jackson signed with Chicago for a $52 million, four-year contract, providing a workhorse for the rotation. But right-hander Matt Garza will miss the start of the season with an injured muscle in his side. The rebuilding process could get a boost if Garza, closer Carlos Marmol and outfielder Alfonso Soriano play well, making them attractive targets for teams ready to win right now. WEST SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS Romo was one of the breakout stars in San Franciscos title run last year. The animated right-hander was 1-0 with a sparkling 0.84 ERA in 10 playoff games, collecting four saves in four opportunities. Now Romo begins the season as the closer, and it remains to be seen if he can handle the challenges of the role over the whole year. Steady second baseman Marco Scutaro and outfielder Hunter Pence each came over in trades during San Franciscos run to the division title, and theyre hoping for a repeat performance. LOS ANGELES DODGERS The Dodgers feel-good spring was stymied by a double dose of bad news. First, Greinke was diagnosed with inflammation in the back of his right elbow. Then Hanley Ramirez hurt his right thumb in the World Baseball Classic and was expected to be sidelined for eight weeks. Carl Crawford is on his way back following left elbow surgery, and Matt Kemp appears to be ready to go following October surgery on his left shoulder. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS One of the most uplifting scenes this spring was Brandon McCarthy back on the mound for the first time since he was struck by a liner up the middle last September. He joins a strong rotation fronted by 15game winner Ian Kennedy and right-hander Trevor Cahill. The focus with the Diamondbacks is on the lineup, which is missing Justin Uptons potent bat after the trade with Atlanta. COLORADO ROCKIES The Rockies are pinning their hopes on a pair of shortstops. Walt Weiss became the manager in November, replacing Jim Tracy. He inherits a club coming off a franchise-worst 64-98 season and a last-place finish in the NL West. The most important shortstop in Colorado is Troy Tulowitzki, who was limited to 47 games last year due to a groin injury. SAN DIEGO PADRES Chase Headley appears to be the latest star on the road out of San Diego. The third baseman had a career year last season, finishing with a .286 batting average, 31 homers and 115 RBIs. He avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to an $8,575,000, oneyear contract, but there is no indication that a long-term deal is coming. With ace pitcher Stephen Strasburg set to go an entire season, are the Washington Nationals the team to beat in the National League?

S PORTSC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, A PRIL 1, 2013 B3 Shorthanded Heat win at San Antonio Associated PressNEW YORK Carmelo Anthony had 24 points and 10 rebounds, and the New York Knicks extended their winning streak to eight games and moved closer to ending Bostons hold on the Atlantic Division title with a 108-89 victory over the Celtics on Sunday night. The Knicks beat the Celtics for the second time this week and won the season series for the first time since 2003-04, when they also went 3-1 against Boston. New York climbed back into a tie with Indiana in the race for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, which would currently mean a playoff meeting with the Celtics. Chris Copeland added 22 points and Raymond Felton had 18 for the Knicks, who last won eight in a row from Nov. 28 to Dec. 12, 2010. They will try to extend the streak Tuesday at Miami. Jeff Green scored 27 points, and Paul Pierce had 24 points and 15 rebounds as the Celtics had a two-game winning streak snapped. Heat 88, Spurs 86 SAN ANTONIO Chris Bosh scored 23 points, including a game-winning 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining, and the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 88-86 with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade sitting out due to injuries. Ray Allen had 14 points, Norris Cole added 13 and Mike Miller 12 for Miami (5815), which swept the season series with San Antonio (5518). By earning the head-tohead tiebreaker with San Antonio, the Heat essentially have a four-game cushion with nine remaining for the leagues best record and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Tim Duncan had 17 points and 12 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard added 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs.Bulls 95, Pistons 94 CHICAGO Luol Deng scored 28 points, Jimmy Butler and Nate Robinson each added 16, and the Chicago Bulls beat Detroit 95-94 to extend their winning streak to 18 straight against the Pistons. Rodney Stuckey scored 25 points and Greg Monroe added 18 points for the Pistons, who have not beaten Chicago since Dec. 23, 2008. The Bulls rallied from a 13-point deficit to tie the score 78-all with 9:27 remaining on Butlers dunk after a steal. Robinson then fed Deng for a layup for an 80-78 lead. Hornets 112, Cavaliers 92 NEW ORLEANS Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points and Ryan Anderson added 23 to lead the New Orleans Hornets to a 112-92 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Anthony Davis had 17 points and 10 rebounds, Brian Roberts scored 15 and Eric Gordon 14 for the Hornets, who snapped a two-game losing streak. Davis doubledouble was his 17th, tops among NBA rookies. Kryie Irving returned from a shoulder injury and led the Cavaliers with 31 points and six assists. Cleveland, which lost its eighth straight, was 1-7 in Irvings absence.Wizards 109, Raptors 92 WASHINGTON Bradley Beal scored 24 points in his return to the lineup, leading the Washington Wizards to a 109-92 victory over the Toronto Raptors. Emeka Okafor had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and John Wall added 18 points and 10 assists for Washington. The Wizards, who came in having lost two in a row on the road, won their seventh straight at home and moved into a tie with Toronto for 10th place in the Eastern Conference. Jonas Valanciunas had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Raptors, losers of six of their last seven. Toronto leading scorer Rudy Gay scored 11 points about seven below his average while being limited to 26 minutes due to foul trouble. Louisville stuns Baylor in regional semifinals Associated PressOKLAHOMA CITY Shoni Schimmel scored 22 points and Monique Reid hit two free throws with 2.6 seconds left to lift sixthseeded Louisville to a stunning 82-81 upset of top-ranked, defending national champion Baylor on Sunday night in the regional semifinals of the NCAA womens tournament. Odyssey Sims scored 29 points and hit a pair of free throws with 9.1 seconds left to give the Lady Bears (34-2) their only lead of the game. Reid caught an inbounds pass near the baseline after that and went coast to coast before getting fouled by All-American Brittney Griner on her way to the basket. Sims had one last chance to save Baylors season after Reids free throws but was off-target and late on a desperation heave. The Lady Bears had been practically invincible for the past four months, winning 32 straight games mostly by double digits. It was the end of a remarkable college career for Griner, a record-setting 6-foot-8 post player who ended up as the secondhighest scoring player in NCAA history. Griner, who had averaged 33 points in Baylor's first two games in the tournament, wound up with 14 points and 10 rebounds, making only four of her 10 shots. Louisville (27-8) tied an NCAA record with 16 3-pointers to pull off the upset. Oklahoma City regional No. 2 Tennessee 74, No. 6 Oklahoma 59 OKLAHOMA CITY Kamiko Williams scored 15 points, Cierre Burdick had 13 and second-seeded Tennessee routed Oklahoma 74-59 in the regional semifinals of the NCAA womens tournament. The Lady Vols (27-7) opened a 20-point lead in the first half and never let Oklahoma make a comeback, improving to 26-5 in regional semifinals. Tennessee will face No. 5 seed Louisville Tuesday night in the round of eight. The Lady Vols have lost in the regional finals the past two seasons and havent made it to the Final Four since winning the national title in 2008. Sharane Campbell scored 22 points and Joanna McFarland had 14 for No. 6 seed Oklahoma (24-11), which got an upset to make it to the round of 16, but couldnt capitalize on a friendly home environment in the Oklahoma City regional. McFarland also matched her career best with 16 rebounds. Norfolk regional No. 1 N. Dame 93, No. 12 Kansas 63 NORFOLK, Va. Skylar Diggins scored 22 of her 27 points by halftime and became the schools career scoring leader, helping the top-seeded Fighting Irish to a 93-63 victory against Kansas in the semifinals of the Norfolk Regional. And Diggins made it look easy, adding nine assists and three steals, and scoring nine straight during a 16-2 first-half run that put the Irish (34-1) ahead to stay. The victory was the 29th in a row for Notre Dame, and left the Irish one victory shy of a third consecutive trip to the Final Four. Carolyn Davis led the upstart Jayhawks (20-14) with 25 points on 11-for-17 shooting.No. 2 Duke 53, No. 6 Nebraska 45 NORFOLK, Va. Tricia Liston scored 17 points and Duke shook off a slow start to beat Nebraska 53-45 in the semifinals of the Norfolk Regional of the womens NCAA tournament. Alexis Jones added 14 points for the Blue Devils (33-2). They advanced to Tuesday nights game against top-seeded Notre Dame with a berth in the Final Four on the line. Lindsey Moore led the Cornhuskers (25-9) with 11 points. Saturday late game Spokane regional No. 2 California 73, No. 6 LSU 63 SPOKANE, Wash. Layshia Clarendon scored 19 points to lead California a 73-63 victory over LSU on Saturday, sending the Bears to the round of eight for the first time in program history. Gennifer Brandon had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and Brittany Boyd added 14 points for second-seeded Cal (31-3). Theresa Plaisance had 15 points and 12 rebounds for sixth-seeded LSU (22-12). Chicago crushes Detroit Associated PressDETROIT Brandon Saad had two goals and an assist and Dave Bolland scored twice in the Chicago Blackhawks 7-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. Jonathan Toews added a goal and two assists and Jeremy Morin and Nick Leddy, also scored for Chicago. Cory Crawford made 33 saves. Chicago led 3-0 at the end of the first period after scoring on its first three shots in a 1:39 span in the games first four-and-a-half minutes.Flyers 5, Capitals 4, OT PHILADELPHIA Ruslan Fedotenko scored 1:34 into overtime after Kimmo Timonen got the tying goal with 9.5 seconds left in regulation and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Washington Capitals 5-4. Maxime Talbot, Matt Read and Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers, who moved within two points of the idle New York Rangers and New York Islanders for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Capitals are a point ahead of Philadelphia in a jumbled East. Kings 3, Stars 2 DALLAS Brad Richardson and Justin Williams scored third-period goals just over a minute apart to help lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars Jeff Carter also scored his 20th goal of the season for Los Angeles, which has lost just once in regulation in Dallas in its last 14 visits (11-1-2) and outshot the Stars 40-15. Jonathan Bernier needed to make just 15 saves for the Kings. Jamie Benn and Ray Whitney scored for Dallas. Blue Jackets 2, Ducks 1, OT COLUMBUS, Ohio Mark Letestu set up the only goal in regulation and scored the game-winner in overtime, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 29 of 30 shots to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

One point from defeat in the last set, Murray skipped a forehand off the baseline to stay in the match. He then dominated the tiebreaker, while Ferrer appeared to cramp and collapsed to the court after one long exchange. The match was filled with grinding baseline rallies, including at least a dozen of more than 20 strokes and one lasting 34. Murray and Ferrer dueled for 2 hours, 45 minutes. Murray became the first Key Biscayne mens champion to save a championship point. Both of us fought as hard as we could, both struggling physically at the end, Murray said. I just managed to come through. Murray also won the title in 2009. His path to this years championship was made easier because Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal skipped the tournament and Novak Djokovic lost in the fourth round.

starting his 50th year in pro ball. All-Star shortstop Hanley Ramirez is sidelined for the Dodgers. Around the majors, third basemen Chase Headley of San Diego, David Freese of St. Louis and Brett Lawrie of Toronto will begin the season on the disabled list. Mets third baseman David Wright plans to be in the lineup at Citi Field to take on San Diego. He hurt his ribcage at the World Baseball Classic. I feel good physically, Wright said. It would have been nice to have maybe a few more at-bats toward the end, but I didnt have that luxury. On Tuesday, there are two more openers Baltimore at Tampa Bay, and Cleveland at revamped Toronto. Seven weeks after teams broke out the bats and balls, players seemed ready to get going. Im really prepared. Well, finally spring training is over, it was a long one, Seattle ace Felix Hernandez said Sunday, a day before his start in Oakland. Its another season. Were a different team. Its always special, opening day, not for me but for all the guys, he said. side of the court toward Michigan fans behind press row with fingers raised. Fans were chanting, Its great to be a Michigan Wolverine! And great to be young. Seeing it all come together, I dont what to say, sixth-year Wolverines coach John Beilein said. Im a little bit speechless. Michigan hadnt reached the Final Four since consecutive finals appearances in 1992 and 1993, the freshman and sophomore seasons of the Fab Five Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Ray Jackson and Jimmy King. With four wins in this NCAA tourney, the Wolverines already have more tournament victories than their total from the end of the Fab Five era to this season. They had one win in 1998, and then didnt even make the field again until 2009. Despite being the only team to make regional finals each of the last three seasons, the Gators havent been to the Final Four since winning consecutive national titles in 2006 and 2007 for coach Billy Donovan. Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy, the four-year seniors who came in not long after those titles, will leave without one of their own. They were part of the only Gators class to win consecutive outright SEC regular-season championships, but came up short in the biggest games. Florida is the first team to make it to three consecutive regional finals without winning at least one of them, according to STATS LLC. Wyoming lost in the round of eight from 1947-49, but that stretch ended two years before the NCAA tournament expanded to more than eight teams. I feel more upset for Boynton, (Mike) Rosario and Murphy, who dont get a chance and have come so close, Donovan said. This one, we didnt play well enough or deserve to win. Boynton and Will Yeguete had 13 points apiece for the Gators. The Gators were able to recover from an early deficit against Florida Gulf Coast for a 62-50 win Friday night on the raised stage at Cowboys Stadium. It was another story facing Big Blue. After McGary started the scoring with a layup, Stauskas made a behind-theback pass to McGary for a slam before making his first 3-pointer less than a half-minute after that. Burke passed to McGary for a layup before driving for one of his own. McGarys jumper made it 13-0 only 3:05 into the game. Stauskas, who was 2 of 12 from 3-point range the first three games of this NCAA tourney, was on target against the Gators. The 6-foot-6 guard from Canada put the Wolverines up by 24 with 4:08 left in the first half after two consecutive 3s from the left corner in 27 seconds. I cant even explain the feeling. I was having so much fun, Stauskas said. Ive been working and dreaming my whole life about something like this. To finally have it, I have a smile on my face and Im enjoying the moment. Florida missed its first seven shots before Yeguete made a layup more than 3 1/2 minutes into the game. It was a rough finale for Murphy, who twice thought he had easy baskets in front of him only to have the shots blocked. Murphy had eight rebounds, but finished 0-of-11 shooting and was scoreless for the first time this season. Murphy was clearly devastated, staring at the floor with slumped shoulder in the locker room after the game. Just missed shots, Murphy said, barely loud enough to be heard, and answering in short spurts. Our defense was bad. Even with an 11-2 run late in the first half punctuated by Boyntons 3-pointer, the Gators were still down by 15 with a minute to go in the first half. But the Wolverines were able to score even after it appeared that the half had ended; Burke was already heading off the court pumping his right arm toward the Michigan fans. Stauskas was fouled on a 3-point attempt with .4 seconds left and, after officials reviewed the play, hit two free throws to give Michigan a 47-30 lead. It was that kind of day for Michigan, and for Florida, as well. Midwest regional No. 1 Louisville 85, No. 2 Duke 63 INDIANAPOLIS With tears in their eyes and Kevin Ware in their hearts, there was no way Louisville was losing this game. Russ Smith scored 23 points, Gorgui Dieng had 14 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks and top-seeded Louisville put aside the shock from Wares gruesome leg injury to beat Duke 85-63 and earn a second straight trip to the Final Four. It will be some time before the Cardinals can celebrate this victory, however. Ware, whos played a key role in Louisvilles 14game winning streak, was hospitalized after appearing to snap his lower right leg with 6:33 left in the first half.

To have a putt to win, you want that starting out every week. I would have liked for it to have been closer. Points picked up his final birdie on the par-5 13th when the hole got in the way of his chip and kept the ball from running well past. It instead stopped 3 feet away. He finished at 16-under 272, and the win gives him another two-year exemption. His exemption from the Pebble Beach would have expired this year. More important, the win gets him back to Augusta National in two weeks. Phil Mickelson opened his final round with four straight birdies, and he was still in the picture until a three-putt double bogey on the 14th hole. He had a 68, and wound up six shots behind. Dustin Johnson had the lead at one point until he missed a short birdie putt on the 11th, and then hit his 5-wood into the water on the reachable par-4 12th hole, leading to bogey. He wound up with a 65 and finished two shots behind. Ben Crane, who played alongside Points, had birdie chances on the last two holes that would have dropped if he had hit them hard enough. Crane had a 68 and tied for fourth with Johnson. Rory McIlroy was long gone, on his way north to San Antonio, when all this was going on. The worlds No. 2 player closed out his week at the Houston Open by making a 25-foot birdie putt for a 70 and a tie for 45th. McIlroy will play the Texas Open next week before heading to the Masters. Siem of Germany wins by three shots in MoroccoAGADIR, Morocco Marcel Siem of Germany shot a 2-under 70 to win the Hassan II Trophy by three strokes. He earned his third European Tour title with a 17-under 217. Siem held off Finlands Mikko Ilonen and Englands David Horsey, who were tied for second. The French Open champion was four shots ahead overnight but had a slow start with a bogey on the first hole. Three birdies from Siem and a mid-round slump from Ilonen gave him a decisive lead.

Study portrays Bard as ruthless businessman LONDON New research depicts William Shakespeare as a grain hoarder, moneylender and tax dodger who became a wealthy businessman during a time of famine. Academics from Aberystwyth University in Wales combed through historical archives to uncover details of the playwrights parallel life as a merchant and property owner whose practices sometimes brought him into conflict with the law. He was pursued by authorities for tax evasion, and in 1598 he was prosecuted for hoarding grain during a time of shortage. The academics argue we cant fully understand Shakespeare unless we study his business-savvy side and the era of hunger in which he lived. Researcher Jayne Archer said Sunday that those aspects are overlooked because many people cannot countenance the idea of a creative genius also being motivated by self-interest.Malibu homeowners, celebs struggle with beach-saving plan MALIBU, Calif. Malibus celebrity haven of Broad Beach is struggling to survive as nature chews away at the shoreline and a $20 million effort to replace sand appears to be stuck in the mud. Homeowners have run up against opposition and complicated approval processes as they pursue a plan to dredge sand from elsewhere and dump it to restore the 1.1mile beachfront, the Los Angeles Times reported. In recent years, winter storms and rising high tides have reduced the formerly broad beach, where Steven Spielberg Dustin Hoffman and others have their beach houses. Waves sometimes lap up to an 8-foot-high 4,100-foot-long emergency rock wall that state regulators allowed homeowners to build about three years ago to protect dozens of multimillion-dollar homes. The (wall) is perilously close to certain homes, said Kenneth A. Ehrlich an attorney for the homeowners. The homes are certainly in danger. ...Theres no beach right now that anyone can enjoy. Steve Levitan co-creator of the TV series Modern Family, recalled taking family strolls on the beach but said he now plans walks to avoid high tide. With the reduced footage, surfers cant get out to the good surf spots, and the homeowners cant get there, either, he said. Residents are proposing a $20 million project to dredge tons of sand and transplant it to restore the dunes and shoreline, both public and private. Manhattan Beach blocked plans to use its sand, and residents now are considering using sea-bottom sand from Dockweiler Beach in Los Angeles. However, the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors has objected, saying the sand might be needed to restore other public beaches as sea levels rise. For years, Broad Beach was the subject of feuding between homeowners and the public over access. At one point, security guards were hired to patrol the beach, and sunbathers contended they were harassed. In 2005, 108 property owners took tons of sand from the public beach and packed it up into a berm on their property. The work was ordered halted by the California Coastal Commission.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) Intangible ideas could prove to be of greater value than things of a material nature. This will become very evident today. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Even if benefits are presently coming your way without too much exertion on your part, imagine how much more could happen if you put forth some effort. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) It could be to your benefit to try to help others realize their hopes and expectations. What would be beneficial for them could be of advantage to you as well. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Youre destined to accomplish something of significance that could produce more than a few benefits. However, it may not be apparent that a bonus is on its way it is. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) This is a good day to once again analyze a problem that youve been unable to resolve. A number of solutions that previously eluded you could now become quite obvious. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If an important enterprise in which youre involved has a dire need for something you possess, do your best to deliver. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Even if youre operating well on your own, you would be even more productive with a capable partner. Try to find one with all due haste. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It looks like the career opportunity that youve been looking for is about to come your way. Keep your plans flexible so you can take advantage of it. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Friends are likely to talk to you about all kinds of things, imparting information that they wouldnt reveal to others. What you learn will be useful and then some. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Your financial prospects look to be quite encouraging over the next few days. You could be unusually lucky in ways that could affect your public image.

There are 274 days left in the year. This is April Fools Day. Todays Highlight: On April 1, 1789, the U.S. House of Representatives held its first full meeting in New York; Frederick Muhlenberg of Pennsylvania was elected the first House speaker. On this date: In 1853, Cincinnati, Ohio, established a fire department made up of paid city employees. In 1933, Nazi Germany staged a daylong national boycott of Jewish-owned businesses. In 1939, the United States recognized the government of Gen. Francisco Franco in Spain, the same day Franco went on radio to declare victory in the Spanish Civil War. In 1945, American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II. In 1963, New York Citys daily newspapers resumed publishing after settlement was reached in a 114-day strike. The daytime drama General Hospital premiered on ABC-TV. In 1972, the first Major League Baseball players strike began; it lasted 12 days. In 1976, Apple Computer was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. In 1984, recording star Marvin Gaye was shot to death by his father, Marvin Gay Sr. in Los Angeles, the day before his 45th birthday. (The elder Gay pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, and received probation.) In 1992, the National Hockey League Players Association went on its first-ever strike, which lasted 10 days. Ten years ago: American troops entered a hospital in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, whod been held prisoner since her unit was ambushed on March 23. Five years ago: The Pentagon made public a legal memo dated March 14, 2003 that approved the use of harsh interrogation techniques against terror suspects, saying that President George W. Bushs wartime authority trumped any international ban on torture. (The memo was rescinded in December 2003.) Top executives of the countrys five biggest oil companies told a skeptical Congress they knew record fuel prices were hurting people, but argued it wasnt their fault and that their huge profits were in line with other industries. One year ago: A coalition of more than 70 partners, including the United States, pledged to send millions of dollars and communications equipment to Syrias opposition groups. Todays birthdays: Actress Jane Powell is 85. Actress Ali MacGraw is 75. Rhythm-and-blues singer Rudolph Isley is 74. Reggae singer Jimmy Cliff is 65. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is 63. Director Barry Sonnenfeld is 60. Thought for Today: A caval donato non si guarda in bocca. (Dont look a gift horse in the mouth.) Italian proverb.

Associated PressNEW YORKB eginning work a few years ago on her latest book, an anthology of poems for young people, Caroline Kennedy found herself looking through one of her mothers scrapbooks. She burst into laughter, she says, as she came across a poem that her brother John, as a youngster, had picked out and copied as a gift to their poetry-loving mom. Willie with a thirst for gore, Nailed his sister to the door, went the poem, by an unknown author. Mother said with humor quaint, Careful, Willie, dont scratch the paint! The poem brought back memories of our relationship, Kennedy told a bookstore audience this week. I laughed so hard. But for Kennedy, now 55 and a mother of three grown children, theres a deeper meaning to that irreverent ditty. Poetry was a central part of her home life growing up. She and John regularly copied out and illustrated poems for their mother, Jackie, upon birthdays and Mothers Days. Sometimes, theyd recite them too, if we were feeling competitive. And at family gatherings with their grandmother, there were frequent challenges to recite Henry Wadsworth Longfellows famous (and famously lengthy) Paul Reveres Ride. Only Uncle Ted, it seems, was able to recite it in its entirety. Now, with her 10th book, Kennedy wants to share with young readers the love for the written word that she feels her poetry-filled childhood helped instill in her (even though her own son, she quips, hates reading and only likes two poems.) Hence the title: Poems to Learn By Heart. It was a combination of remembering my own childhood and thinking about gifts Id been given, she said in an interview last week at her husbands downtown Manhattan design firm, explaining the genesis of the latest book. And working in schools and seeing the role that poetry can play in kids lives. Its also an effort to promote literacy, a cause Kennedy has supported in a number of ways. Fourteen percent of American adults cant read, Kennedy says. Its a slow-motion disaster. She believes poetry can help. Kids need a way in, she says, and reading needs to be fun. Poetry can give them that with the current emphasis on poetry slams, and these other open mic events. Thats actually why I think poetry has a chance. Another pet project: Libraries, which she says are still critical places for young people to learn analytical skills. Shes the honorary chair of National Library Week next month. Im into things that are dying out, she quips, then adds that actually theyre not: My son goes to the library all the time (at college.) Theres a lot more socializing at the library than you think. Kennedy asked each of her own three kids Rose and Tatiana, who have finished college, and Jack, who is still there to contribute a favorite poem to her new book. (Tatiana, the bookworm according to her mother, translated a poem from Ovids Metamorphoses, from the original Latin.) But she herself has trouble picking her favorite. Asked by an audience member at her book reading to do just that, though, she settled on Dont Worry if Your Job is Small. Dont worry if your job is small, and your rewards are few, it says. Remember that the mighty oak, was once a nut like you. Caroline Kennedys latest book a collection for kids Fourteen percent of American adults cant read. Its a slow-motion disaster. Kids need a way in, and reading needs to be fun. Caroline Kennedy on why she chose poetry for her latest book. Associated PressLOS ANGELES After a nine-month delay, G.I. Joe: Retaliation deployed to the top spot at the box office. The action film starring Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum as the gun-toting military toys brought to life marched into the No. 1 position at the weekend box office, earning $41.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Retaliation opened Wednesday at midnight, which helped bring its domestic total to $51.7 million. Paramount postponed the sequel to 2009s G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra last May from its original June opening date to convert the film to 3-D. The lastminute switcheroo came just weeks after Battleship, another movie based on a Hasbro toy, sank at the box office. At that time, Paramountalready began its advertising campaign for Retaliation. It certainly vindicates the decision, said Don Harris, the studios head of distribution. Any time you make those sorts of moves, people always assume the worst. The truth is Id seen this movie a long time ago in 2-D, and the movie worked in 2-D. Its not trying to be Schindlers List. This movie is intended to be enjoyed as a big, action spectacle. After debuting in the top spot last weekend, the 3-D animated prehistoric comedy The Croods from DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox slipped to the No. 2 spot with $26.5 million in its second weekend. G.I. Joe commands No. 1 at box office Associated Press Ray Park, left, and Dwayne Johnson are pictured in a scene from G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

B6 M ONDAY, A PRIL 1, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Bridge has survived all these decades for several reasons. For example, there are deals, like this one, that do not follow a normal course. What would a textbook advise West to lead against four spades? But what would he lead if he could see all 52 cards? When a defender has four trumps, it is usually best to try to make declarer ruff something. The defender hopes to reduce declarers trump length down to his own, or, even better, shorter than his. He wants declarer to lose trump control. Thinking along those lines, West led the heart ace. When East signaled enthusiastically with the nine, West led another heart. South tried dummys queen, but East covered with the king. After ruffing, South was tempted to play on trumps, but he mused about Wests lead. West surely had not started with ace-doubleton. And if not, it was a dangerous lead, suggesting that he had long trumps. Declarer cashed his diamond ace, ruffed a diamond on the board, led a club to his king, and ruffed his last diamond. Then he played a trump. West won and led another heart, but South ruffed, cashed his two top trumps, and played on clubs, still having one trump to retain control. Declarer lost only one heart and two spades. On this deal, West has to lead his singleton to defeat the contract. Then, if declarer attacks trumps, West wins and returns the suit. Or, if South exits with a heart before or after ruffing a diamond on the board, East wins and gives his partner a club ruff. Then West cashes the spade ace and plays another spade no fooling!

This year I have two 7-year-old students with major behavior issues. Both of them have threatened to bring a gun to school and shoot me and their classmates. As shocking as it is to hear this from such young children, the response from the people in charge is worse. I reported these threats multiple times, and nothing has been done. No one has even spoken to the boys about their behavior. I was told the kids are young and most likely dont have access to guns. Yet these kids have older siblings who can obtain guns for them. In light of current events, I take these threats seriously. Ive spoken to the principal, vice-principal, school social workers and the boys parents. They all tell me I need to focus on the positive things the kids do. Am I crazy, or are they? What should I do? Quitting my job is not an option. Worried Teacher Dear Teacher: While it is not uncommon for young children to make such threats, they normally do not follow through. However, there is a slim possibility that one of these boys will bring a weapon to school and attempt to use it, especially if he hears news reports about other school shootings. The bigger problem is the major behavior issues. We realize you are fearful, but an alarmed approach is not productive. Are these boys receiving any kind of ongoing counseling or assistance? Perhaps if you approach this as a way to help the children develop better coping skills, the school will address it more directly and effectively. Dear Annie : Please let your readers know of an easy way to support our troops. When buying a new cellphone, donate your old one to the nonprofit Cell Phones for Soldiers through the website cellphonesforsoldiers.com. Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded in 2004 by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist of Norwell, Mass., when they were 12 and 13 years old. The organization converts proceeds from used cellphones into prepaid phone cards for our troops overseas. They have donated more than 181 million minutes to our troops, many of whom could not otherwise afford to call home. Please support those individuals who support our country. Bay St. Louis Dear Bay St. Louis : Thank you for mentioning this very worthwhile organization. We hope our readers will keep it in mind when getting a new cellphone. Dear Annie: I was perplexed by the recent letter from Mr. Manners about bits of food that a diner drops on the plate. He expressed disgust that people pick up the bits with their fingertips, and you concurred that it was proper etiquette to use ones knife to retrieve the droppings. I can display more grace picking up such bits with my fingertips than anyone can with forks and knives. And what about the centuries-old practice of sopping ones bread in leftover juices? However, my real question is: In the grand scheme of things, what difference does it make if a person picks up food bits with the fingers? Durant, Okla. Dear Durant : You may have misunderstood the original letter. When eating peas and other small, hard-to-capture foods, it is best to get them onto ones fork by using a knife or a piece of bread, rather than pushing them with ones fingers. Its unappetizing to watch someone use their fingers. And yes, you can sop bread in leftover juices, as long as you dont make a slurpy mess of it.

Crystal River relay begins FridayERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerLECANTO Citrus County has supported the fight against cancer by raising thousands of dollars yearly during the Relay for Life events in Crystal River, Inverness and Lecanto. Determined to amplify their revenue and attendance, Lecanto Relay for Life organizers are eager for the county to see the events anti-cancer-style decades theme. I invite everyone to come out to Lecanto and give it a shot to see what it is all about, said Lecanto Relay for Life operation coordinator Holli Herndon. Lecanto has a different culture there because it is a mix of the whole county. There are a lot of people coming that are adding their own style and flair. American Cancer Societys Relay for Life at Lecanto High A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerIt is a case of many tentacles and recesses. It also is a case of dogged police work and the tale of a grainy video chronicling the activities of three alleged burglars in the still of a mid-December night at a local concrete business. Gardners Concrete is set back a little ways off West Homosassa Trail with a small sign by the side of the road with the businesss name on it. Around the back is a fenced-in area that leads to the back and side of the office building where Wes Gardner kept tools of the trade generators, expensive saws with enough mettle to cut through concrete, and drills and bits and power washers. He also parked his trucks there. However, the trio of burglars wearing gloves the night of Dec. 10 were unaware of several small cameras recording their moves. Gardner said the security system captured the burglars cutting through the fence and loading a bunch of his equipment on one of his trucks. They damaged the gate and drove off. The stolen truck was found torched a few miles away.

See SHOOTING/ Page A4 Park folk get bill Dean delivers on fair rent solutionCHRISVANORMER Staff writerA legislator has kept his promise to some county residents and introduced a bill designed to help them sell their manufactured homes. Everybody, including the legislators, the manufacturers and the homeowners (are) facing the same problem, said Edward Green, president of the Citrus County Citizens Coalition, a manufactured homes residents association. Senate Bill 1168 that Sen. (Charlie) Dean has proposed offers a solution. Its a win-win-win for everyone. At a town hall meeting in October in the Walden Woods club house Dean, RInverness, said he would introduce a bill to regulate the rates and frequency of lot rent increases in manufactured home parks throughout Florida. More than 1,000 people from across the state had signed a petition asking for the creation of legislation designed to control, govern and regulate proposed market rent upon the resale of a leased lot rental property. Dean received the petition and heard the issue from manufactured home residents from Citrus and neighboring counties.

From staff and wire reports Page A3MONDAY, APRIL 1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff writerFour applications will go before the planning panel on Thursday, including requests to build a guest cottage, to amend a subdivisions recreation site, to help a business impacted by roadwork and to improve a mobile home park.Brian Kowalski of Custom Family Homes for David Huffman and Ursula Schwuttke will make a conditional-use request to the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC) to convert a 900-square-foot detached garage into a 1,260square-foot guest cottage that is exceeding the 750square-foot maximum at 16219 E. River Road, Inglis. As the cottage would not adversely affect public interest and is generally compatible with adjacent properties, staff recommends approval on condition that the guest cottage shall not be sold separately.Timothy C. Pitts for Crystal Glen Properties Inc. has asked that a tract of land dedicated to the Crystal Club be vacated because the Crystal Club was dissolved three years ago. Staff recommends approval as the request has been determined as consistent with the comprehensive plan. The action would allow other development on the property.DPD for Citrus Equipment and Victor Nadal has requested a land-use change regarding two lots of about 1.13 acres on West Rich Street in Crystal River. Two adjacent lots lost some frontage because of a project to widen County Road 486. The land-use change is recommended for approval, as it is consistent with the comprehensive plan and serves as a cure to road project issues. Denise A. Dymond Lyn for Kathryn Trabert and Marilyn Ann Lee has requested land-use changes for about 3.48 acres in Chassahowitzka known as Golden Knight Mobile Home Park for improvements to the park: open space, recreation and placement of R.V. pads.

Sovereign Path, Lecanto. CALL: 352-527-5239. AGENDA: http://www.bocc.citrus.fl.us/ commissioners/advboards/pdc/pdc.htm. PATFAHERTY Staff writerAddressing a state House subcommittee last week, Progress Energy Florida President Alex Glenn emphasized the role of nuclear power in Floridas energy mix. He and other speakers addressed advanced nuclear cost recovery, Floridas dependence on natural gas and the status of the proposed Levy County nuclear plant. Florida is about 61 percent on natural gas and we will be the third most natural-gas-dependent state by 2020, he said. This is the most volatile fuel source (cost-wise) we have. He noted gas prices are at an all-time low right now, but that Progress/ Duke Energy are planning for growth and are concerned with the reliability and cost-effectiveness of natural gas, as well as its role in energy security and its impact on the environment. He said prices on solar have come down, but there are still issues. A game-changer would be solar storage; its one option we are looking at, he said. But generally, Florida is not a great solar state, and wind energy is basically nonexistent in Florida. Peninsular Florida is essentially an island with two big transmission lines and two natural gas lines leaving nuclear as one of the options. Glenn said they expect full approval of the Levy plant by December 2014. Were taking steps to maintain nuclear for the long-term of the state, he said. We need an all-ofthe-above approach. He denied advanced cost recovery equated to giving utilities a blank check. Steven Scroggs of Florida Power and Light said advanced cost recovery only paid about 10 percent of a projects cost, but enabled utilities to borrow the necessary money to build plants. The Levy project got a boost last week when the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board rejected a challenge by two environmental groups to the plants final environmental impact statement. On March 1, Progress Energy Florida filed petitions with the Public Service Commission to recover approximately $65 million for the Levy plant and $18.4 million for costs associated with the now-defunct Crystal River area nuclear plant. Those were the adjusted costs incurred in 2012 to be considered for recovery by advanced-cost refunding through a charge on customer electric bills. Glenn: Nuclear power in Floridas future NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The first time Ralph Shafer went to an opera, he cried. Its the beauty of the music, he said. Its in a foreign language, but you get the message because of the emotion. I got tears in my eyes and thought, I want to do this! Earlier this year, the tenor baritone got the opportunity, performing as part of the chorus in two operas, A Masked Ball and La Bohme. Before that, despite studying music in college, Shafers varied career never allowed him the time to pursue his love of singing. He worked at a number of social services and teaching jobs that were mostly at night, which meant he wasnt available to attend rehearsals. By the time he retired and moved to Citrus County in 2005, he was ready to pursue his passion with all he had. They say when you retire you should do that thing you always wanted to do but couldnt, he said. For me, thats singing. Currently, Shafer sings with Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, a group of about 170 voices. It was as part of this group that he wound up on an opera stage. I was a season ticketholder to the Florida Orchestra, which performs at the Straz, the Mahaffey in St. Pete and Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, and the Master Chorale performs with them at least twice a year, he said. So, Id go and hear them sing, and I said Id love to be in that group. He realized he finally had the time to pursue what he loved, auditioned for the chorale and was accepted. Then the chorale was invited to perform with the Cleveland Orchestra in Miami. That was my first performance with the Tampa Bay (chorale), and I have to tell you that it was something special, he said. At the last note of the piece, the conductor put his hands down and the audience jumped up and roared to a standing ovation. After that, the chorale was invited to perform with the opera company. The rest, as they say, is history. Shafer said opera goes beyond singing choral music because it involves acting out the part as well as singing the music. Its costumes and movement, affectation and expression and memorizing lyrics in a foreign language. All which, he discovered, he loves. He added that opera soloists have great respect for the chorus, which was a pleasant surprise. He experienced a genuine camaraderie among the cast. He said hed love to do more. I love to sing and I love to make music, and to make music with people who have a very high level of perfection and dedication, he said. When youre with that kind of group, its really inspiring and uplifting. Im a better singer because Im singing with people who are better than I am.

School will commence with the survivors dinner at 5 p.m. and the opening ceremonies at 6 p.m. April 12 and will continue until about noon Saturday, April 13. Currently, 21 teams will seize the field attempting to raise at least $40,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society. We began the Lecanto Relay for Life to pick up that middle part of the county, Herndon said. Our county feels divided sometimes. Lecanto has felt like the pass-through area to get to one side of the county to the other. Revenue raised stays in Citrus County. Programs such as Hope Lodge, Road to Recovery, Look Good ... Feel Better, and Reach to Recovery benefit from funds as well as research, education and treatment. Furthermore, the word relay may be in the title; however, it is anything but a race or marathon. Herndon described it as an 18hour party with survivors, family and community members striving to put an end to cancer. The organized family-friendly, overnight walk consists of participants camping out around the track with each team member taking turns walking. As with all the relays, the public is invited to come out and walk the track or visit the various teams booths and play games or purchase food or other items, with proceeds going to support the American Cancer Society. New this year, a relay pageant for the whole county will begin at 7:30 p.m. and the ever-popular Mr. Relay Contest will take place at 10:30 p.m. Entertainment at the Lecanto event includes Zumba, karaoke, beauty treatments, survivors dinner and a brick-by-brick competition, to name a few. Herndon wants everyone to remember Relay for Lifes purpose: to celebrate, to remember and to fight back. For more information, call Holli Herndon at 352637-3918 or 561-699-4752; visit the Lecanto Relay for Life Facebook page, visit www.relayforlife.org; or email Lecanto Relay for Life at s_tacey99 @yahoo.com.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at eworthington@ chronicleonline.com or 352-563-5660, ext. 1334. Residents described how they felt trapped with the homes they own because the owner of the land beneath their homes would raise the rent to a new tenant, which scared off homebuyers. They asked Dean for legislation linking lot rent increases to the Consumer Price Index to stabilize a potential owners expectation of future rent expenses. It allows people that have a need to leave death, illness or be closer to family and friends it allows for that to happen, though it still allows for an increase to the park owners as far as an increase in rent, Green said. It may be a little bit restricted; it may be a little bit regulated. But its fair and reasonable. And its also a giant win-win-win for the state of Florida and all of the entrepreneur businesspeople for the trickledown effect of allowing all the changes to happen. Some manufacturedhome owners have faced the prospect of walking away from a home that has no buyer, leaving it to the owners of the park, because a lot rent increase stops sales. The main intent of the bill is to allow people to sell their homes and not have to involuntarily give them away, Green said. This bill S.B. 1168 will allow residents of Florida to sell their homes and generate sales tax and allow them to relocate and allow new people to come in, and when they pay sales tax on coming in, they buy other things. Florida has more mobile homes than any other state 762,227 or 10 percent of the national total, according to the U.S. Census. According to 2011 data, Florida has 9,026,965 housing units. Mobile homes make up 8.5 percent of Floridas housing stock. One out of 12 Florida residences is a manufactured home. S.B. 1168 addresses two types of rental agreements. One is a regular lease that can be renewed and raised after it expires by linking it to the Consumer Price Index. The other is a lifetime agreement. In the early days, to entice people to move to Florida, park owners would offer them a guaranteed lifetime rate never to exceed a certain amount, Green explained. As long as that person lived there, he would pay that low flat rate. After that tenant left, the Consumer Price Index increase would be too low in comparison. It would not be fair and reasonable to the park owners. S.B. 1168 would allow the park owner to offer the next tenant of a lifetime agreement lot site a rate not to exceed the lowest rent being charged in the park, which would be higher than a CPI-linked rate. Coming in at the bottom end of the rent range is fairer to the park owners, Green said. Since the bill was introduced earlier this month, Green has been touring the state explaining it and promoting it to park residents. Im also encouraging them to contact the chairpeople of the three committees that are scheduled to hear the bill, Green said. The bill will be referred to three Senate committees: Regulated Industries, Community Affairs and Judiciary. Green said the bill will help the state recover its standing as a retirement destination. He said Florida slipped below North Carolina, South Carolina and Arizona. Rent stability would entice more people to retire in Florida and increase revenue. If S.B. 1168 passes, the law would settle some longtime disputes in retirement communities. Were not trying to be unfair, Green said. Were not trying to be controlling to the park owners. Were looking at this from every possible aspect.

vehicle to Gardners, where the owner shared a list of missing items and the video. The video and subsequent stills from the video revealed three faces authorities were not familiar with. Thats all investigators had: a grainy video and a list of missing items. Enter Deputy Brian Coleman, community resource officer in the Crystal River substation, inherited the case because one of the detectives was off. He got rolling, logging 80 hours on the case in addition to his regular duties. Luck and tenacity took over rather quickly. Pictures of the suspects were distributed among agency personnel, businesses and other sources. Three days later, we get a call from a business and they said one of the guys was in the store, Coleman said. He rushed over there, but the man had left. However, workers at the business were able to snap a clearer picture of the suspect and wrote down his vehicle tag. After running the information through normal law enforcement investigative tools, it was found that a car bearing that South Carolina license plate was stopped in Tampa recently. Two names came out of that stop: Sean Martin Osborne, 45, of Tampa, and Hector Luis Martinez, 25, of Brandon. With the names, license numbers and pictures plus a vehicle, Coleman was able to issue a nationwide be-on-the-lookout (BOLO) notice. He also found out Osborne was wearing an ankle monitor for a Citrus County violation, and the monitor was able to place him at the Gardner property at the same time as the video was recorded. Three days after Christmas, Osborne was nabbed in Chattanooga, Tenn., and charged with arson, grand theft auto and burglary. He has yet to be extradited to Citrus County. Coleman continued his painstaking investigation of Martinez and the third suspect seen in the video, poring over pawn shop records. He eventually got a hit linking Martinez to pawn transactions in Hillsborough County, for which he was arrested by authorities there. One of the items was a generator belonging to Gardner that Martinez reportedly pawned a day after the burglary. Martinez was arrested Feb, 23 and transferred to the county jail. The third suspects case remains under investigation. It is really gratifying, but it took a lot of time, Coleman said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

DILIGENTContinued from Page A1 The third suspects case remains under investigation. Forgotten US airship crash recalled 80 years later Associated PressLAKEHURST, N.J. History buffs will gather this week near the New Jersey coast to commemorate a major airship disaster. No, not that one. Newsreel footage and radio announcer Herbert Morrisons plaintive cry, Oh, the humanity! made the 1937 explosion of the Hindenburg at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station probably the best-known crash of an airship. But just four years earlier, a U.S. Navy airship seemingly jinxed from the start and later celebrated in song crashed only about 40 miles away, claiming more than twice as many lives. The USS Akron, a 785foot dirigible, was in its third year of flight when a violent storm sent it plunging tail-first into the Atlantic Ocean shortly after midnight April 4, 1933. No broadcasters, no photographers, no big balls of fire, so who knew? said Nick Rakoncza, a member of the Navy Lakehurst Historical Society. Everybody thinks that the Hindenburg was the worlds greatest (airship) disaster. It was not. A ceremony to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the crash, the deadliest airship disaster on record, is being conducted Thursday at a veterans park where there is a tiny plaque dedicated to the victims. Below it is a small piece of metal from the airship. Few in the area seemed to know about the disaster, let alone the memorial plaque; even a Navy officer sent on an underwater mission to explore the wreckage many years later had not heard of the Akron. Its almost a forgotten accident, said Rick Zitarosa, historian for the Navy Lakehurst Historical Society. The Akron deserves to be remembered. The Akron crashed off the community of Barnegat Light just a few hours after taking off from Lakehurst, killing 73 of the 76 men aboard, largely because the ship had no life vests and only one rubber raft, according to Navy records and the Navy Lakehurst Historical Society. They had been moved to another airship and were never replaced. Lt. Cmdr. Herbert Wiley, Moody Erwin and Richard Deal were pulled from the frigid waters by a German tanker that had been nearby. Erwin and Deal had been hanging on a fuel tank. Wiley was clinging to a board, according to an account he gave to a newspaper the next day. In a newsreel interview, Wiley, standing next to the other survivors, said he was in the control car just before the crash. He said crew members could not see the ocean until they were about 300 feet above the water. The order was given to stand by for a crash, Wiley said. The ship hit the water within 30 seconds of that order and most of us, I believe, we catapulted into the water. Among the casualties was Rear Adm. William Moffett, the first chief of the Bureau of Navy Aeronautics. When the wreckage was found, Zitarosa said, the airship had collapsed to about 25 feet in height. It had originally stood at about 150 feet. It was a catastrophic disintegration of the ship once it hit the water, Zitarosa said. Part of the wreckage was lifted from the sea a few weeks after the accident. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. in Akron, Ohio, had been awarded a Navy contract in 1928 to build the Akron and a second rigid airship, the Macon. Construction of the Akron by the Goodyear-Zeppelin Corp. was completed in 1931. It was plagued by problems from the start. It was involved in three accidents before its final flight, including one in which its tail slammed into the ground several times. Another accident killed two sailors. Some men who died in the Akron had survived the airship crash of the USS Shenandoah less than a year before. A day after the Akron disaster, a blimp sent out to look for bodies malfunctioned and crashed in Barnegat Light, killing two more crew members. A year later, Wiley was the commanding officer on the USS Macon when it was lost in a storm off of Port Sur, Calif., also killing two crew members. Wiley survived, but that was it for him and airships. A plaque and a piece of the USS Akron airship are seen March 21 at a small veterans memorial park in a neighborhood in Manchester Township, N.J. Associated PressThe USS Navy Air Cruiser Akron flies over lower Manhattans financial district Nov. 2, 1931, in New York City. The Akron went down in a violent storm off the New Jersey coast. The disaster claimed 73 lives, more than twice as many as the crash of the Hindenburg four years later. The USS Akron, a 785-foot dirigible, was in its third year of flight when a violent storm sent it crashing tail-first into the Atlantic Ocean shortly after midnight April 4, 1933.

JOHNROGERS Associated PressCLAREMONT, Calif. As he rolls through the front door of the sprawling Claremont Club fitness center and shouts a friendly hello here and there, for just a moment its as if nothing has changed since Hal Hargrave Jr. was the big, friendly teenage gym rat who haunted this place. The burly Hargraves head was filled with dreams of playing college baseball as he strode into the gym, stretched out on a bench and pressed 300 pounds above his body. Again and again. Hes still big and burly, his arms still muscular and he still works out nearly every day. Only these days Hargrave uses that strength to move his wheelchair in and out of the gym, where he still works out 20 hours a week and knows just about everybody in the place. These days, though, Hargraves goal is to get walking again, something he lost the ability to do on July 26, 2007, when he swerved his truck to avoid debris in the road. It flipped four times, the cab collapsing on him and snapping his spine. It left him paralyzed from the neck down. The irony is never lost on Hargrave that he was delivering handicappedaccessible bathroom doors as part of a summer job. If it was a sign to a strapping 17-year-old athlete that his life was headed in the wrong direction, it would seem to have been a particularly harsh one, but Hargrave doesnt see it that way. Some people call me crazy for putting it this way, but I have been given a gift, the talkative, friendly 23-year-old says with a smile over lunch at the gyms small cafe. They see this as an ailment. I dont. He sees it instead as something that gave him a chance to help others, to have his life truly make a difference. It inspired him to create the Be Perfect Foundation, a nonprofit charity that has raised $1.2 million to provide wheelchairs, make homes more accessible and, most importantly, keep more than 100 people in rehabilitation programs they otherwise couldnt afford. All of which would have been pretty impressive if Hargrave had just stopped there. But he didnt. He persuaded the Claremont Club president to turn a racquetball court and a basketball court into a wing for people with paralyzing injuries. Then he got Project Walk, a spinal rehabilitation center where hed been treated, to open its first franchise in this bucolic college town 35 miles east of Los Angeles for those who couldnt make the commute to its San Diego area headquarters. Heres a 17-year-old boy who had a debilitating, life-changing accident, said Mike Alpert, who runs the Claremont Club and whose daughter has known Hargrave since the two were in kindergarten. So many people that go through that would give up. Would be depressed. Would blame everybody else. Heres a young man who just said, I have a calling to change the world and to help people through whats happening to me. And then he goes out and does it! How special is that? Hes an amazing young man, echoes Devorah Lieberman, president of University of La Verne, where Hargrave is a fulltime student. Although he hasnt regained full use of his fingers (he fist bumps rather than shakes hands), hes gotten back enough to take notes on his iPad. He maintains a near-perfect 3.8 grade point average. Lieberman will never forget the first time they met two years ago at a basketball rally. Hargrave, never known to be shy, rolled up and introduced himself. He told her how hed been hurt and she expressed her condolences. And he said to me, DO NOT be sorry! It was a blessing. Then he gave her a Be Perfect bracelet that she wears to this day. Not that the road back from the accident was easy. It was very touch and go the first two weeks, recalled his father, Hal Hargrave Sr., who still chokes up when he talks about what his son has overcome and accomplished. They had him on breathing machines. He got pneumonia. ... We didnt know if he was going to stay with us or not. Hargrave himself thought he would die as he lay trapped in the truck. Those stories about your life passing before you, he says, are true. Although hes big and strong again, nerve damage keeps his body in a near perpetual state of motion, giving the impression hes fidgeting uncomfortably in his chair although he really feels little. Given only a 1 percent to 3 percent chance of walking again, he threw himself into rehabilitation with the same fervor that once made him a high school sports star. Gradually, movement returned to his shoulders, then his arms and hands. Lately, hes started to get some in his legs, as well. Its nothing thats too controlled movement yet, but its coming back and Im doing things that doctors are in disbelief about, he says happily. It was after one of his arduous rehabilitation sessions, where limbs are yanked and twisted and bodies are placed in expensive machinery to simulate walking, that an epiphany led to his foundation. Brian ONeil, an electrician who had suffered a similar injury in a dirtbike crash, told Hargrave he wouldnt see him again. Hed lost his job, was about to lose his house, didnt have insurance and couldnt afford any more rehabilitation. Before he left the center, Hargrave persuaded his father to pick up the cost of ONeils rehabilitation. Then, on the ride home, he decided why not help others as well? He was told that running a foundation wouldnt be easy, especially for a guy going through his own grueling rehabilitation. But he was adamant. He didnt like the word no. And he didnt like the word cant, Hargrave Sr. says, chuckling at the memory of raising the oldest of his four children. ONeil was blown away and still is. For such a young man hes very I cant even find the words to mention the kind of guy Little Hal is, ONeil, using the nickname close friends call Hargrave by, says emotionally. Hes just a great kid. Hargrave scheduled the first of what would become annual fundraisers at the height of the Great Recession and he hoped he might get lucky and raise maybe $30,000. After $250,000 poured in, he thought: Maybe we can do this forever. So he soldiers on, getting up each day, working out, running the foundation, hanging out with friends, going to school. Still a sports fanatic, hes earning a degree in communications with the hope of someday becoming a sports broadcaster. But the foundation will always come first. I had dreams of going off and going to school and becoming a baseball player and doing this and that, he says as he finishes lunch. But when I think back on it, it was so selfish. And now my dreams are much different. My dreams are to keep people in therapy and my dreams are to help other people. Thats what my life is about at this point.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Even with one of the largest hurdles to an immigration overhaul overcome, optimistic lawmakers on Sunday cautioned they had not finished work on a bill that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. The AFL-CIO and the pro-business U.S. Chamber of Commerce reached a deal late Friday that would allow tens of thousands of low-skill workers into the country to fill jobs in construction, restaurants and hotels. Yet despite the unusual agreement between the two powerful lobbying groups, lawmakers from both parties conceded the negotiations were not finished. With the agreement between business and labor, every major policy issue has been resolved, said Sen. Chuck Schumer, the New York Democrat who brokered the laborbusiness deal. But it hasnt taken the form of a bill, and the eight senators searching for a compromise havent met about the potential breakthrough. We havent signed off, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. There are a few details yet. But conceptually, we have an agreement between business and labor, between ourselves that has to be drafted, he added. Yet just before lawmakers began appearing on Sunday shows, Sen. Marco Rubio warned he was not ready to lend his name and political clout to such a deal without hashing out the details. Reports that the bipartisan group of eight senators have agreed on a legislative proposal are premature, said Rubio, a Florida Republican who is among the lawmakers working on legislation. Rubio, a CubanAmerican who is weighing a presidential bid in 2016, is a leading figure inside his party. Lawmakers will be closely watching any deal for his approval and his skepticism about the process did little to encourage optimism. Rubio, who is the groups emissary to conservatives, called the agreement a starting point, but said 92 senators from 43 states havent yet been involved in the process. The detente between the nations leading labor federation and the powerful business lobbying group still needs senators approval, including a nod from Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican whose previous efforts came up short. I think were on track. ... But as Sen. Rubio correctly says, we have said we will not come to final agreement til we look at all of the legislative language, and hes correctly pointing out that that language hasnt been fully drafted, Schumer said. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., also noted the significance of the truce between labor and business but added this wasnt yet complete. That doesnt mean weve crossed every i or dotted every t, or vice versa, said Flake, who is among the eight lawmakers working on the deal. Schumer negotiated the deal between AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka and Chamber of Commerce head Tom Donohue during a late-Friday phone call. Under the compromise, the government would create a new W visa for low-skill workers who would earn wages paid to Americans or the prevailing wages for the industry theyre working in, whichever is higher. The Labor Department would determine prevailing wage based on customary rates in specific localities, so that it would vary from city to city. The proposed measure would secure the border, crack down on employers, improve legal immigration and create a 13-year pathway to citizenship for the millions of illegal immigrants already here. Its a major second-term priority of President Barack Obamas and would usher in the most dramatic changes to the faltering U.S. immigration system in more than two decades. This is a legacy item for him. There is no doubt in my mind that he wants to pass comprehensive immigration reform, said David Axelrod, a longtime political confidant of Obama. The new program would fill needs employers say they have that are not currently met by U.S. immigration programs. Most industries dont have a good way to hire a steady supply of foreign workers because theres one temporary visa program for low-wage nonagricultural workers, but its capped at 66,000 visas per year and is only supposed to be used for seasonal or temporary jobs. Associated PressRENO, Nev. Two Nevada youth football coaches are facing criminal charges in connection with a bloody fist fight in front of dozens of players and parents after a game in northeastern Nevada. The coaches are accused of chestbumping, punching and yelling obscenities at each other during the Oct. 16 midfield fight in the casino town of West Wendover along the Utah line. Prosecutors filed misdemeanor battery and disturbing the peace charges last week against Luis Perez, 53, and Frank Sanchez, 38, in West Wendover Justice Court. The fight stemmed from the final play of a game that involved 10to 13-year-old boys and was won by Perezs team, police said. Perez told investigators he asked his quarterback to kneel down with the ball to end the game, but Sanchez tried to get his bigger players to hurt the quarterback. Sanchez denied the allegation and maintained he acted in self-defense during the fight. Theres no association or league, youth or adult, that will accept that kind of behavior, Robert Loncar, head of the Great Basin Youth Football League, told The Associated Press. The game was over and there was no reason for that. They let their tempers get the best of them. Its just a very poor example. The kids watch everything and we adults need to be role models, he added. Both coaches have unlisted phone numbers and could not be reached for comment. It was not immediately clear whether they had attorneys. While witnesses disagree over who threw the first punch, they say the fight began after Perez and Sanchez got in a heated argument over the final play. The two exchanged punches until the fight was broken up, according to witnesses. Both coaches refused medical attention at the time. Perez suffered a bloody nose and swollen eye, while Sanchez had no immediate visible injuries, police said. The coaches, who have been permanently banned from the league, are scheduled to be arraigned May 8 in justice court. Sanchez, in a statement to police, acknowledged he regretted the fight. I feel really bad for my action that (night), he wrote. I thought we were going to exchange words and that was all. We both made mistakes that night. We both hurt the sport and kids that we love. For that I will willfully (accept) any action against me ... I believe that both of us made a huge mistake and hopefully we are forgiven by the kids and parents and community someday.A8MONDAY, APRIL1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION 000EIKH Visit one of our participating Battle of the Burgers restaurants TODAY!

Page A10MONDAY, APRIL 1, 2013 Wealthy few leads to anemic economyThe Living paycheck to paycheck letter from Mr. Lawrence has me wondering if he really understands basic economics. Consider: 1. Research on human motivation indicates people would prefer to work than to do nothing (Think about all the volunteer workers in this county!); 2. There are more people than there are paid jobs, so there are going to be people who cant find work and must do nothing; 3. When money is distributed through unemployment checks, food stamps, Social Security, etc., to those who have very little of it, all of that money is spent which is a good thing, because it continues to circulate throughout the economy and helps the economy to grow; 4. When money is distributed through tax breaks to the wealthy (who already have a lot of it), some of that money is invested in foreign countries, some goes to foreign banks, or is just taken out of circulation and squirreled away. The point is: It is taken out of circulation, which hurts our economy; 5. Anyone who is smart enough to be wealthy will not invest in job creation if they cant sell a product because the masses of people do not have money to purchase the product. No amount of tax breaks for the wealthy will change that. A high percentage of people in Citrus County are middleclass. They have seen their salaries cut (teachers), pensions reduced or eliminated (government workers), or they have seen their jobs disappear completely. That does not help private businesses to flourish. Businesses are hurt when people have less money to spend. The more we shift our countrys resources into the hands of a few, the more slowly our economy will grow. If we cut one segment of the economy (government spending), we need to cut the other segment as well by increasing taxes on large corporations and the wealthy to ensure a healthy economy.

We had a very nice turnout and everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks to club members who worked to set up and clean afterwards, baked brownies for sale or participated in other ways to make this event successful; to all who donated gifts for the Chinese auction; to Chris and Robert Dudley for the use of their establishment and their time; to Catfish Johnny and the Roaring Fever Band from Lake Panasoffkee and their many friends. We could not have done it without the help of all of you who made this event so successful. We thank you very much for all you did.Madeline Gendron chairwoman Robert Emerson president, Inverness Lions Club Dear Whomever is in Charge of Customer Service for DirecTV: All I wanted was to watch the game. I was back in my hotel room after a long day and I figured, what better way to unwind? Now, the game wasnt available on the hotel channels, but Ive got that League Pass service you offer and one of its perks supposedly is that you can watch the game right on the ol iPad. So I got out the ol iPad and I fired up the app and I retrieved the password and I tried to sign in and nothing happened, so I called you guys and the robot lady answered and told me to OPRIMA NUMERO DOS if I wanted to conduct my business in Spanish, which I didnt, so I didnt and I said yes when the robot lady asked if I was a subscriber and I gave her my phone number when she asked for it and then she asked me to tell her what I wanted, and I tried to explain twice but she didnt get it, so I told her I had a question about League Pass and she gave me this long spiel about how I could buy League Pass, which I didnt need to do, since I already had it, so I asked the robot lady to connect me with technical support and she said she would and thats about when she hung up on me, so I called again and I went through the whole thing again and this time I got to a human being who listened to my problem and what I had done to solve it, expressed remorse, then told me to do the same things I had done, which had not worked the first time, and when I did and it didnt work again, this person transferred me to another person who also expressed remorse and then, reading from a manual, told me to do the thing I had done, which hadnt worked the first two times, and when I explained this, transferred me to a third person who dutifully expressed remorse and quickly concluded he could not help me and told me to contact the NBA. By this point, the game was at halftime. I gave up. So anyway, Mr. or Ms. Whomever is in Charge, heres the thing: Can I talk to a human being next time? Ill pay extra if you simply have the phone answered by someone with a pulse. Not just you. I make the same offer to my cellphone company, my Internet provider, the electric company and the bank. I am willing to pay more if it means that when I call your company, my call will be answered by an actual, knowledgeable human being who will listen to my problem and solve it. That doesnt seem much to ask. Once upon a time, it wasnt. But that was before technology made our lives simpler and more convenient. It was before the age turned distant and impersonal and human beings became cost inefficient. It was before someone got the bright idea to let robots answer the phone. Meaning not just machines that use voice recognition software to misunderstand what youre asking for and route your call to the wrong department, but also those human robots who, once they do get your call, read mechanically from a script that requires them to express remorse for your problem, explain why they cant fix your problem, try to upsell you on some new service that does not address your problem, then ask if you are satisfied with how they have resolved your problem. Those old movies that told us how machines would take over the world had it wrong. One does not see human skulls crushed beneath robot feet. No, one just sees human spirit crushed beneath robot customer service. One misses the days when companies employed actual people to serve actual people and if they were occasionally surly, clueless or unhelpful, they were at least real capable of acknowledging your presence. How much to get that back? Seriously. You could market it as a premium package. DirecTV Pulse Now With Real Humans! Give me a call and lets discuss.

The statistics are sobering. Automobile accidents are the No. 1 cause of death among teenagers. In 2010, the last year for which there are full statistics, about 3,115 people in the United States age 13 to 19 were killed and about 282,000 were treated in emergency rooms for injuries from auto crashes. Per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are three times more likely than all other ages combined to be involved in a fatal automobile accident, and in six out of 10 fatal accidents involving teenagers, the driver of the car was a teen. In Citrus County, a cooperative agreement between the school system and the sheriffs office, which was worked out following a crash that took the lives of two teens, allows high school juniors and seniors to take at no cost a Florida Sheriffs Association driver training program called the Teen Driver Challenge. In addition to learning defensive driving skills and how to respond to driving emergencies, there is an added incentive. Taking the course is required to get a parking permit at county high schools, and students can take the day off from school to attend the course. While this is a benefit, it is also the only leverage the school system has to encourage students to take the course, because it is not required to get a license. Since the program began in Citrus County in 2007, nearly 2,500 teens have taken the course, and no student who took the course has been killed in an automobile accident. The program seems to have a positive impact on driving safety of those who participate. While planning for the program was under way when the two young women died in a terrible accident, the pain of two families who lost daughters in an accident that could have been avoided helped drive the program from planning into reality. Today, young drivers are learning the skills to help them avoid becoming another grim statistic. The program is now established, and it is saving lives. It is a tribute to the families of these two young women, the school system and the sheriffs office that this personal tragedy helped promote a program that saves lives year after year.

Assuming the unification as presently proposed occurs, I would ask one final favor of the Chronicle: Please print, for the benefit of the citizens of Citrus County, the names, occupations and dates of service of the members of both of these quasigovernmental bodies in order that we may well remember them in the event they seek further service to our county in the future.Whos left to pay?I see where the developers want us to do away with the impact fees.

I was really surprised that there is no mention about using someone elses written work. Im prompted to call in by a letter that I read in the Chronicle just recently and it was signed by a resident of Citrus County. I located that same exact same composition on the Internet. The letter in the Chronicle was a truncated version, but nonetheless identical.

Make changes to political systemFor most of my adult life, I have considered myself a Republican (no more); however, I do not understand where they plan to lead this country. I have several ideas to share: They are promoting increasing the minimum age for Social Security. Do theyreally think people of age can continue to fulfill jobs where they do hard labor like climbing utility poles, standing on your feet over 12 hours a day, or carrying heavy loads? I feel they could contain the high costs of Medicare in two ways: (1) Have a single-payer system for all people who have the authority to limit excessive costs for equipment, medication, laboratory and imaging fees to name a few. Consider the cost of a power scooter. It was estimated they cost about $700 to build; however, these companies bill Medicare for $4,000 to $7,000 each. I think reasonable profit margins would save a lot of money. I know a lot of people question Medicaid costs. I also think we could lessen this burden by covering all citizens with a basic health care policy and applying copays for misuse of urgent care or emergency room care. All people need to have a primary-care physician; they can take care of most needs at a lower fee than specialists and lessen the need for more expensive interventions. Also, when considering elected officials, I thought our political system says they are elected to represent we the people why do they bow to unelected people like Karl Rove and Grover Norquist over the people? We as citizens and consumers also have the responsibility to see what our elected officials are promoting and if, indeed, they are not representing us, vote them out of office while we can. Far too many public servants have priorities set by (1) the political party leaders, (2) constant fundraising for re-election, and (3) answering to lobbyist or other monetary influences. This is not representational government of the people for the people in my book. And as consumers, promote American jobs by supporting products made in the United States.Sandy Engelman InvernessTakers vs. makersUnlike Barack Obama, I will admit it when I misspeak. I misspoke when I said there were 11 states with more people on welfare than working. What I should have said is there are 11 states with more takers than makers. The quote came from William Baldwins article Do You Live in A Death Spiral State? published in Forbes magazine. I could just blow it off like Obama and say Its the same thing, but that wouldnt be fair. Another way to say it is there are 11 states where the number of citizens in the government sector outnumber the number of citizens in the private sector, and that would be very accurate even if there is some overlap. The point is that big overreaching government is doomed to failure. Baldwin defines takers as government workers, government retirees and welfare recipients, and throws in one person for every $100,000 in unfunded state pension fund obligations. When you look at a state like California that has $167 billion dollars of unfunded pension obligations, that does skew the comparison. Since it is a financial article, his point is dont buy a house there or invest in their bonds. Lets take California and look at it closely. It is one of the states that Baldwin labels a fiscal hellhole, a state in a death spiral. I like California; Ive lived there three times in my life and enjoyed it every time. I couldnt afford it today. Money has no meaning there. I recently looked at a cute little 1,400-square-foot house in Half Moon Bay on a 4,500square-foot lot that listed for $750,000. It was a half a block from the ocean but it had no view of it. California has a population of 38,041,430 people. About 1 of every 8 Americans live in California. They have an average per capita income of $29,634, and a median household income of $61,632.With a GDP of just under $2 trillion, California would rank No. 9 in the world in GDP if it was a country. Thats down from a No. 5 ranking 10 years ago. California has the highest average salary for state employees in the country at $70,777. I have seen it listed as just over $60,000. But Ill use the higher number. When you compare either one to the average salary of $29,634, you begin to see the problem: State government is big business and pays very well. An article in the National Review calls California the nations welfare queen: The state accounts for one-third of Americas welfare recipients, though it only contains one-eighth of the population. It has more welfare recipients than the next eight states combined. Its very hard to find information on how much California spends on welfare. There are hundreds of websites telling you how to apply for it, but nearly none actually totaling up the numbers. They like to list the numbers for individual programs and there are many, but it falls to you to add them up, I came up with $11.59 billion a year. Of interest is $69 million of that appears to have been spent on vacations as tracked by ATM withdrawals on the state-issued debit cards. Las Vegas led with $12 million, followed by Hawaii and cruise ships. Of that, $11 million went to ATM charges for not using the correct ATM machines. Harley Lawrence HomosassaEmbrace God, Constitution, gunsRespectfully written to Mr. Cary McMullen: I hope your statement that Christians who cling to God might actually require them to throw away their guns and turn their backs on the Constitution is your way of joking or some type of light detestation for Mrs. Palin. If we turn our backs on what made and is this country, we have nothing and deserve nothing. I, as many, believe in God, America, our Constitution, all of the Amendments and the freedoms they bring. Some of us will and have fought and died to protect the very fiber and being of the great U.S. Constitution. I believe this country is in trouble, and if the people in America do not get more involved to educate themselves of politics, the laws, Constitution, what is happening around the world and actually read and know our founding history, stand up, speak out and replace most of the useless people in power and put forth less government involvement we will end up enslaved by government, and the controlling politicians who think it is a lifetime job to rule instead of working for the people, by the people, will rule as autocrats. Not everyone has to agree, but I believe the majority will: Embrace your God, the Constitution and your right to keep and bear arms. To protect this nation and cling to its Constitution is not a rant and those who believe so need to be more open-minded, tolerant and educated on the founding of this country no matter your faith, politics and beliefs.Don B. Powell HernandoDoctors responded when neededI would like to send my sincere thank you and appreciation to our affiliated physicians Dr. William Gelinas, Dr. John Royalty and Dr. Shaun Saint for their willingness on Feb. 25 to personally respond to the multiple vehicle accidents that occurred on U.S. 19 in front of Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. I cannot recall experiencing numerous different motor vehicle accidents on the same morning in front of our hospital due to four different causes. Your presence and guidance was calming to the hospital associates who responded as well as to the law enforcement/fire/emergency medical crew members that worked each scene. I also commend our hospital team for its efforts in responding quickly and compassionately to those in need. To our law enforcement/fire/ emergency medical crews, I thank you for efficiently and effectively managing the scene. I appreciate everything that you do each and every day for our community. We will be sharing for some time the story of how traffic was closed in both directions so that the trauma helicopter could land on the highway and rapidly transport one of the victims. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the injured and their family members, yet our appreciation for your dedication is heartfelt and I wanted to express those feelings with each of you. On behalf of Seven Rivers Regional, thank you for what you do every day, but especially on this day.Joyce Brancato CEO, Seven Rivers Regional Medical CenterOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, APRIL1, 2013 A11 000EHTI 000EI11 Complete Landscape, Design, Created & Maintained Complete Landscape, Design, Complete Landscape, Design, Created & Maintained Created & Maintained Outdoor Fireplaces Planting Beds Pavers Certified Brick Installers Certified Pond & Waterfall Installers ICPI Certified Paver Installers Financing Available 352-621-7700 Come visit our Outdoor Living Showroom at Hwy 19 & Fair Acres, Homosassa www.BushHomeServices.com FREE 15 gal.

Suspect sought in abduction of girl, 10LOS ANGELES A transient with a long criminal record is being sought in the kidnapping of a 10-yearold girl who was snatched from her San Fernando Valley home before dawn last week and abandoned hours later in front of a hospital. Police identified Tobias Dustin Summers, 30, as a suspect Saturday, but they couldnt elaborate on the motiveor what led them to him. About 40 detectives have been investigating since the girl was abducted from her home at around 3 a.m. Wednesday. As of right now, there are no new developments on the case, Officer Norma Eisenman, a police spokeswoman, said Sunday. The girl was found about 12 hours after she was abducted, wandering near a Starbucks several miles away. She was barefoot, had bruises and scratches, and wasnt wearing the same clothes she had on when she vanished.Four hurt in crash, attack at WalmartSAN JOSE, Calif. Authorities said four people were hurt when a driver crashed his vehicle into a Walmart in California and assaulted people in the store. San Jose police said after the crash on Sunday, the driver got out his vehicle and used a blunt object to attack people. Its not known how badly those attacked were hurt, but one person suffered what police described as serious injuries. The driver of the vehicle was arrested when officers arrived. His name has not yet been released. WILLIAM BOTTOMLEY /WXIIThree people were killed Sunday in a 75-vehicle pileup on Interstate 77 near the Virginia-North Carolina border. Three killed in 75-vehicle pileupGALAX, Va. About 75 vehicles crashed Sunday along a mountainous, foggy stretch of interstate near the Virginia-North Carolina border, killing three people and injuring more than 20 others, police said. Traffic backed up for about 8 miles in the southbound lanes of I-77 in southwest Virginia. Authorities closed the northbound lanes so fire trucks, ambulances and police could get to the wreck. Several vehicles caught fire in the wreck, but the blaze was put out, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said.

Flea circus director Robert Birk said he was shocked to find all of his 300 fleas dead inside their transport box Wednesday morning. The circus immediately scrambled to find a new batch so it could fulfill its engagements at an open-air fair. Michael Faber, who organizes the fair, told The Associated Press that an insect expert at a nearby university was able to train 50 fleas in time for the first show Sunday. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressKAUFMAN, Texas Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland took no chances after one of his assistant prosecutors was gunned down two months ago. McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere he went and was extra careful when answering the door at his home. Im ahead of everybody else because, basically, Im a soldier, the 23-year Army veteran said in an interview less than two weeks ago. On Saturday, he and his wife were found shot to death in their home just outside the town of Forney, about 20 miles from Dallas. While investigators gave no motive for the killings, Forney Mayor Darren Rozell said: It appears this was not a random act. Everybodys a little on edge and a little shocked, he said. The slayings came less than two weeks after Colorados prison chief was shot to death at his front door, apparently by an exconvict, and a couple of months after Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was killed in a parking lot a block from his courthouse office. No arrests have been made in Hasses slaying Jan. 31. McLelland, 63, is the 13th prosecutor killed in the U.S. since the National Association of District Attorneys began keeping count in the 1960s. Sheriff David Byrnes would not give details of how the killings unfolded and said there was nothing to indicate the slayings were connected to Hasses. The people in my line of work are going to have to get better at it, McLelland said of dealing with the danger, because theyre going to need it more in the future. The number of attacks on prosecutors, judges and senior law enforcement officers in the U.S. has spiked in the past three years, according to Glenn McGovern, an investigator with the Santa Clara County, Calif., district attorneys office who tracks such cases. McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, 65, were the parents of two daughters and three sons. One son is a police officer in Dallas.

Compiled by CJ Risak and Jon-Michael Soracchi Jon-Michael SoracchiON POINT Chronicle file photos Michigan crushes Floridas Final Four hopes Gators start slow, never lead in 79-59 loss Associated PressARLINGTON, Texas Trey Burke and Michigan had the perfect response for everyone who said they were too young or not tough enough to make it all the way to Atlanta. The championship trophy for the South Region is headed back to Ann Arbor, while another fabulous group of young Wolverines is going to the Final Four. Led by Burke and sharp-shooting guard Nik Stauskas, one of three freshmen starters, Michigan controlled Florida from start to finish in a 79-59 win Sunday. It means the world 20 years has passed and we havent been on that stage yet, said Tim Hardaway Jr., the junior elder statesman in the starting lineup. The last time Michigan made it this far was the Fab Five era of the early 1990s, what until now had been considered the programs glory years. Might be time to start rethinking that. Once they got ahead Sunday, the Wolverines (30-7) maintained a double-digit lead against the experienced Gators (29-8), who won the regular-season title in the Southeastern Conference, but lost in a regional final for the third straight year. Weve almost become numb to it now. Been here before, Gators junior center Patric Young said. I just really wish we were out there cutting the nets down. Stauskas scored 22 points while making all six of his 3-pointers. Burke, the South Regions most outstanding player, scored 15 points, and 6-foot-10 freshman Mitch McGary had 11 points and nine rebounds. When the game ended, Burke and several of his teammates went to the opposite Points wins, makes Masters Associated PressHUMBLE, Texas D.A. Points came back from a long rain delay and made four pars, the last one giving him a one-shot victory in the Houston Open and a trip to the Masters. With a putter he once borrowed from his mother and never returned, Points rolled in a putt from just outside 12 feet on the final hole to polish off a 6under 66 and avoid a sudden-death playoff with Masters-bound Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel. It was quite a turnaround for Points, whose only other PGA Tour win was at Pebble Beach two years ago with actor Bill Murray along for the laughs. He started the year by missing the cut seven times in nine tournaments. He arrived at Redstone Golf Club having not broken 70 in last nine rounds. But he stayed in the hunt after opening with a 64, and he kept his calm when he returned to the golf course after a rain delay of nearly three hours. Thank you for staying, Points said to the sparse gallery in the bleachers as he walked off the green. Stenson birdied his last two holes for a 66 before the storms rolled across Houston, and while he came up one shot short, he moved up to No. 42 in the world ranking to earn an invitation to the Masters. Horschel was on the 18th tee when play was halted, and then had to wait some more for his turn to hit on the tough driving hole. He split the middle, found the green and two-putted for par to join Stenson in the clubhouse lead. They waited around for a playoff that wasnt necessary when Points saved par on his last two holes. Ive been having a really Openers feature Strasburg, rivalries, AL vs NL Associated PressThe Kansas City Royals have been absent from the playoffs since the day Billy Butler was born. Theyve barely had a winning season in the last two decades. Theyve often lost 100 games in a year. And yet, buoyed by the best record in spring training, hope abounds for the Royals, for most everybody putting on a big league uniform. Theres no reason we shouldnt be better, said Butler, the Royals All-Star slugger. How much better that is? Im not a mind reader. Im not a projector. Ah, opening day. The hot dogs taste better, the boxscores mean more and most every team thinks its just a break or two away from reaching the World Series. A dozen games were set for today across the majors. Star pitchers Justin Verlander, Stephen Strasburg and Adam Wainwright try to get off to great starts, old rivalries are renewed at Yankee Stadium and Dodger Stadium, and a quirky interleague schedule unfolds. No snow is in the forecast for any ballpark on April Fools Day, but freezing temperatures are expected at Target Field in Minnesota when Verlander and the AL champion Tigers take on the Twins. Its going to be cold, but Ive pitched in that kind of weather before, Verlander said. I dont think about it. Its always cold in Detroit on opening day. The season started Sunday night in Houston when the Astros, who shifted from the National League to the American League during the winter, hosted the Texas Rangers. Long the site of baseballs traditional opener, Cincinnati was going to have a new look today. Thats when Josh Hamilton and his new Los Angeles Angels teammates visit Cincinnati in the first interleague matchup this season. The Astros move left 15 teams in each league, meaning an AL vs. NL matchup most every day this season. It is very strange, Reds manager Dusty Baker said. On both coasts, there was a very familiar look Red Sox-Yankees and Giants-Dodgers. Mariano Rivera was set for his final opening day when the banged-up Yankees hosted Boston. The New York closer is among several big names who missed most or even all of last year Troy Tulowitzki, Victor Martinez and John Lackey are in that group. Injured stars Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira wont be in pinstripes for the first pitch. Its still the Yankees, its still going to be a good lineup, Boston starter Jon Lester said. Theyre missing a few of their big guys, but anybody that fills in for them, its like what I said, theyre going to put professional at-bats together and still its not going to be a walk in the park. No easy decisions, either, for Boston manager John Farrell, one of six new skippers in the majors this year. At Dodger Stadium, Matt Cain starts for the World Series champion San Francisco Giants when they play Los Angeles in the century-old rivalry.

B2MONDAY, APRIL1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBASEBALL Hamilton, Angels set to take on Tigers Associated PressJosh Hamilton joined forces with Albert Pujols and Mike Trout in Los Angeles, primed to pry the American League pennant from Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and Victor Martinez in Detroit. Not so fast, big boys. The Toronto Blue Jays want in, too, and they brought a bevy of All-Stars, led by knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and shortstop Jose Reyes, north of the border for their shot. Tampa Bay locked up Evan Longoria for six more years. The White Sox signed young ace Chris Sale for five. The AL West champion Oakland Athletics are hoping Yoenis Cespedes can keep them on top in a loaded division. One thing is certain: A bunch of swaggering bats are ready to give the Houston Astros a rude welcome to the American League. A look at the AL in predicted order of finish:EASTTAMPA BAY RAYS The spendthrift Rays opened their checkbook to keep Longoria for six more seasons and $100 million. Now, he must stay healthy if light-hitting Tampa Bay is going to make a run in this hefty division. Longoria missed 74 games last season and the Rays went 41-44 without him. Led by AL Cy Young Award winner David Price and arrow-pointing closer Fernando Rodney, the Rays will be tough to beat no matter how many runs they score. Even with the departure of James Shields and Wade Davis, this staff is deep, and youngsters Jeremy Hellickson, Alex Cobb and Matt Moore are only improving. TORONTO BLUE JAYS The Blue Jays proved this winter how they think the 20th anniversary of Joe Carters World Series-clinching homer in 1993 should be celebrated with their first trip back to the playoffs since that dramatic win. GM Alex Anthopoulos went on a trading spree, unloading spare parts and prospects for Dickey, the NL Cy Young Award winner, Reyes, All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera and former aces Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle. The dynamic Reyes and Cabrera, returning from a 50-game suspension, should set the table for Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. NEW YORK YANKEES The aging Yankees came into camp in poor health and things quickly got worse. Theyll start the season with Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Phil Hughes on the disabled list. New York will count on spare parts such as Vernon Wells, Lyle Overbay and Brennan Boesch, oft-injured Travis Hafner and Kevin Youkilis to keep Brett Gardner and Ichiro Suzuki zipping around the bases until the big hitters return. But a pitching staff led by CC Sabathia, whos coming back from offseason elbow surgery, and closer Mariano Rivera, returning from a torn ACL, could help this club to their 18th trip to the postseason in 19 years. BOSTON RED SOX The one-year experiment with Bobby Valentine a bust, Boston turned to its old pitching coach John Farrell to guide the club out of last place (69-93). The Red Sox brought in Ryan Dempster. They need Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz to return to form, and John Lackey to be effective after missing last season because of elbow surgery. Boston was beset by injuries last year. A full season from Jacoby Ellsbury not to mention another MVP-caliber season like he had in 2011 would go a long way to helping an offense that could be without David Ortiz (heels) for a time at the start of the season. BALTIMORE ORIOLES The Orioles made a stunning turnaround last season, going from a team that lost 93 games to winning a wild-card spot with a 93-69 record Baltimores first winning season in 15 years. And they did it with exuberance, racking up wins in 16 straight extra-inning games and going 29-9 in one-run games, taking the Yankees to a fifth game in the division series. The luck could run out, though, in the rugged East. Jim Johnsons 51 saves were a big reason why the Orioles won so many close ones. Can he repeat the performance in his second year as a full-time closer? CENTRAL DETROIT TIGERS The Tigers feel they have some unfinished business to take care of after being so handily swept by the San Francisco Giants, and the only thing that could keep them from a return trip to the World Series is their bullpen. Improving a lineup anchored by Triple Crown winner Cabrera and Fielder sounds difficult, but Detroit did it. Martinez is back from the disabled list and Torii Hunter is here to provide a potent lineup with even more punch. Justin Verlander leads a solid rotation with Max Scherzer and late-season addition Anibal Sanchez. But who will close after Jose Valverdes meltdown in the playoffs? CHICAGO WHITE SOX The White Sox made a surprising run under first-year manager Robin Ventura, leading the division into September before fading. Theyve locked up Sale with a five-year, $32.5 million contract, re-signed a rejuvenated Jake Peavy and brought in Jeff Keppinger to help boost a league-worst .221 average in the No. 2 hole. KANSAS CITY ROYALS Trading away their top prospect, outfielder Wil Myers, for pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis was a big gamble for the Royals to make. But along with Ervin Santana, the three are being counted on to turn around the Royals biggest problem area: starting pitching. If Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer and Jeff Francoeur can rebound at the plate, then the Royals could surprise some people and end streak of nine straight losing seasons. CLEVELAND INDIANS The Indians spent money this winter, all right. Will it help? Hard to say. No matter how many runs Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn, Drew Stubbs and Mark Reynolds produce for new manager Terry Francona, the starting rotation is still a problem. MINNESOTA TWINS Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau appear to be at full health, but the Twins appear headed for a third straight last-place finish in the Central because their rotation is such a question mark with newcomer Mike Pelfrey coming off Tommy John surgery, Scott Diamond still rehabbing after minor arm surgery and Kevin Correia getting hit hard this spring.WESTTEXAS RANGERS After an embarrassing collapse in the final week of the season and a loss in the wild-card game, the Rangers irked some fans. They didnt open their wallet to keep Hamilton or Mike Napoli and traded the teams career hits leader, Michael Young, to the Phillies. Theres no panic in Texas, though, and rightly so. The Rangers lineup is still formidable, with MVP candidate Adrian Beltre, Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz. Texas might not be able to match the Angels run for run, but it will outpitch Los Angeles. Matt Harrison and Yu Darvish, with 16 wins as a major league rookie last year, lead a deep rotation. Joe Nathan returned to form as the closer. LOS ANGELES ANGELS Fans will be sticking to their seats when the hitters are taking their hacks, but when Jered Weavers not on the mound the concession lines could get a little long. Weavers an ace and C.J. Wilson can be a formidable No. 2, although he had an up-anddown first season in California. After that, who knows? OAKLAND ATHLETICS The As rode a young pitching staff five rookies at times after Bartolo Colon was suspended for 50 games for a drug violation and the surprising performances by players such as Brandon Moss and Josh Donaldson to the West title. For Oakland to pull off another stunner in this division, its going to need ace-in-the-making Brett Anderson to remain healthy and the veteran Colon to help bolster the young staff. SEATTLE MARINERS Step one in the Mariners long-term health is taken care of: they locked up 2010 Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez with a $175 million, seven-year contract. Now, they need everything else to follow. Seattle improved one of baseballs worst offenses by bringing in Kendrys Morales, Michael Morse, Jason Bay and Raul Ibanez. HOUSTON ASTROS The inexperienced, overmatched Astros are going to be fodder for the big bats at the top of the division. Still, GM Jeff Luhnow has the team headed in a better direction. This season, though, Houston could become the first team since the New York Mets from 1962-65 to lose at least 100 games for three straight years. 2013 MLB season outlook AMERICANLEAGUEPREVIEW NATIONALLEAGUEPREVIEW Associated PressOnce Sergio Romo struck out Miguel Cabrera to end the World Series, the chase was on. The Upton brothers were reunited in Atlanta. Zack Greinke signed a big freeagent deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Arizona remade its club with fiery manager Kirk Gibson in mind. Washington and Cincinnati each traded for a leadoff hitter, and Philadelphia added Michael Young to its already potent lineup. Romo and the San Francisco Giants begin the year on top, but there is no shortage of potential challengers in the leaner National League. A look at the NL in predicted order of finish:EASTWASHINGTON NATIONALS With Stephen Strasburg and NL Rookie of the Year Bryce Harper slated for a full season for the first time, theres a lot to love about the loaded Nationals. Strasburg went 15-6 with a 3.16 ERA in 2012 before he was shut down after 159 1/3 innings out of concern for his arm in his first season back from Tommy John surgery. Harper also gets a full year after he began last season in the minors. Dan Haren, who has won at least 12 games in each of the last eight seasons, joins the strong rotation. ATLANTA BRAVES Even with B.J. and Justin Upton in the fold, the key to Atlantas season could be the return of catcher Brian McCann following surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He wont be ready for the start of the season, making Gerald Laird the likely openingday starter, but Atlanta is hoping for a return to the form that made him one of the majors top catchers. The trade for Jordan Walden got lost in the shuffle during the Braves busy offseason, but the right-hander should make one of baseballs best bullpens even better. PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES There is plenty of talent in Philly. The question hanging over the Phillies key players is can they stay on the field enough to make a difference. Ace right-hander Roy Halladay was hampered by lower back and shoulder problems last year. New right fielder Delmon Young will begin the season on the DL, and key sluggers Ryan Howard and Chase Utley have dealt with major injuries in recent years. Michael Young should provide a steady presence at third base and speedy center fielder Ben Revere came over in a trade with Minnesota. Mike Adams will help the Phillies get the ball to Jonathan Papelbon, who saved 38 games in his first year with Philadelphia. NEW YORK METS All-Star third baseman David Wright committed to New York by agreeing to an eightyear, $138 million deal over the winter. He may have to wait a while to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. NL Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey was traded to Toronto in December, bringing back a group of prospects but making it all the more difficult for the Mets to contend this year. Jason Bay was cut loose, leaving behind an inexperienced outfield. MIAMI MARLINS There should be plenty of nice seats available for the second season at Marlins Park after Miami traded away many of its best players over the winter, angering the teams fan base in South Florida. Giancarlo Stanton is the biggest remaining star, but he likely wont see much to hit with no other major threats in the lineup. Top prospect Christian Yelich had a big spring and could make his major league debut this season.CENTRALCINCINNATI REDS Joey Votto was still one tough out when he returned last season following left knee surgery. But his power was noticeably absent when the Reds were eliminated by the Giants in the first round of the playoffs. Fast forward to this spring, when the 2010 NL MVP felt so good that he played for Canada in the World Baseball Classic. Todd Frazier gets third base all to himself after hitting .273 with 19 homers, and shortstop Zack Cozart looks to improve on his .246 average from his rookie season. ST. LOUIS CARDINALS No more Chris Carpenter, who is sidelined by a careerthreatening arm injury. No Rafael Furcal, either. He went down with a season-ending elbow injury during spring training. And starting pitcher Kyle Lohse left in free agency. While St. Louis had a rough offseason, there are reasons for hope. Sluggers Matt Holliday, Allen Craig and Carlos Beltran remain a part of a dangerous lineup, and bright young arms Trevor Rosenthal, Shelby Miller and Joe Kelly could have an impact in the rotation and bullpen. PITTSBURGH PIRATES Andrew McCutchen is coming off a breakthrough performance, and the pressure is on to come up with an appropriate sequel in 2013. The All-Star center fielder hit .327 with 31 homers and 96 RBIs last year, helping Pittsburgh contend for much of the summer before another late fade sent the Pirates to their 20th straight losing season. The big offseason acquisition was All-Star catcher Russell Martin, who signed a $17 million, two-year deal as a free agent. Closer Joel Hanrahan was traded to Boston, leaving journeyman Jason Grilli to pick up the slack. MILWAUKEE BREWERS Milwaukee got off to a terrible start last year, then closed with a 27-13 push that nearly got the team back into the playoffs. The prolific lineup that produced an NL-best 776 runs returns largely intact, with speed in Carlos Gomez and Norichika Aoki and power in Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez. Then there is Ryan Braun, who can do it all. But the biggest problem for Milwaukee could be the rotation beyond Yovani Gallardo, which is largely unproven. It got a boost late in spring training when Lohse agreed to a $33 million, three-year contract. CHICAGO CUBS The Cubs are encouraged by the progress of prospects Albert Almora, Jorge Soler and Javier Baez. And thats going to have to be enough for now, because the rebuilding project under Theo Epstein is still at least a year away. Edwin Jackson signed with Chicago for a $52 million, four-year contract, providing a workhorse for the rotation. But right-hander Matt Garza will miss the start of the season with an injured muscle in his side. The rebuilding process could get a boost if Garza, closer Carlos Marmol and outfielder Alfonso Soriano play well, making them attractive targets for teams ready to win right now.WESTSAN FRANCISCO GIANTS Romo was one of the breakout stars in San Franciscos title run last year. The animated right-hander was 1-0 with a sparkling 0.84 ERA in 10 playoff games, collecting four saves in four opportunities. Now Romo begins the season as the closer, and it remains to be seen if he can handle the challenges of the role over the whole year. Steady second baseman Marco Scutaro and outfielder Hunter Pence each came over in trades during San Franciscos run to the division title, and theyre hoping for a repeat performance. LOS ANGELES DODGERS The Dodgers feel-good spring was stymied by a double dose of bad news. First, Greinke was diagnosed with inflammation in the back of his right elbow. Then Hanley Ramirez hurt his right thumb in the World Baseball Classic and was expected to be sidelined for eight weeks. Carl Crawford is on his way back following left elbow surgery, and Matt Kemp appears to be ready to go following October surgery on his left shoulder. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS One of the most uplifting scenes this spring was Brandon McCarthy back on the mound for the first time since he was struck by a liner up the middle last September. He joins a strong rotation fronted by 15game winner Ian Kennedy and right-hander Trevor Cahill. The focus with the Diamondbacks is on the lineup, which is missing Justin Uptons potent bat after the trade with Atlanta. COLORADO ROCKIES The Rockies are pinning their hopes on a pair of shortstops. Walt Weiss became the manager in November, replacing Jim Tracy. He inherits a club coming off a franchise-worst 64-98 season and a last-place finish in the NL West. The most important shortstop in Colorado is Troy Tulowitzki, who was limited to 47 games last year due to a groin injury. SAN DIEGO PADRES Chase Headley appears to be the latest star on the road out of San Diego. The third baseman had a career year last season, finishing with a .286 batting average, 31 homers and 115 RBIs. He avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to an $8,575,000, oneyear contract, but there is no indication that a long-term deal is coming. With ace pitcher Stephen Strasburg set to go an entire season, are the Washington Nationals the team to beat in the National League?Associated Press Challengers gear up to take down Giants Associated PressWith slugger Josh Hamilton, left, joining Albert Pujols and the Angels, Los Angeles has its sights set on the World Series.

The Knicks beat the Celtics for the second time this week and won the season series for the first time since 2003-04, when they also went 3-1 against Boston. New York climbed back into a tie with Indiana in the race for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, which would currently mean a playoff meeting with the Celtics. Chris Copeland added 22 points and Raymond Felton had 18 for the Knicks, who last won eight in a row from Nov. 28 to Dec. 12, 2010. They will try to extend the streak Tuesday at Miami. Jeff Green scored 27 points, and Paul Pierce had 24 points and 15 rebounds as the Celtics had a two-game winning streak snapped.Heat 88, Spurs 86SAN ANTONIO Chris Bosh scored 23 points, including a game-winning 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining, and the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 88-86 with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade sitting out due to injuries. Ray Allen had 14 points, Norris Cole added 13 and Mike Miller 12 for Miami (5815), which swept the season series with San Antonio (5518). By earning the head-tohead tiebreaker with San Antonio, the Heat essentially have a four-game cushion with nine remaining for the leagues best record and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Tim Duncan had 17 points and 12 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard added 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs.Bulls 95, Pistons 94CHICAGO Luol Deng scored 28 points, Jimmy Butler and Nate Robinson each added 16, and the Chicago Bulls beat Detroit 95-94 to extend their winning streak to 18 straight against the Pistons. Rodney Stuckey scored 25 points and Greg Monroe added 18 points for the Pistons, who have not beaten Chicago since Dec. 23, 2008. The Bulls rallied from a 13-point deficit to tie the score 78-all with 9:27 remaining on Butlers dunk after a steal. Robinson then fed Deng for a layup for an 80-78 lead.Hornets 112, Cavaliers 92NEW ORLEANS Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points and Ryan Anderson added 23 to lead the New Orleans Hornets to a 112-92 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Anthony Davis had 17 points and 10 rebounds, Brian Roberts scored 15 and Eric Gordon 14 for the Hornets, who snapped a two-game losing streak. Davis doubledouble was his 17th, tops among NBA rookies. Kryie Irving returned from a shoulder injury and led the Cavaliers with 31 points and six assists. Cleveland, which lost its eighth straight, was 1-7 in Irvings absence.Wizards 109, Raptors 92WASHINGTON Bradley Beal scored 24 points in his return to the lineup, leading the Washington Wizards to a 109-92 victory over the Toronto Raptors. Emeka Okafor had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and John Wall added 18 points and 10 assists for Washington. The Wizards, who came in having lost two in a row on the road, won their seventh straight at home and moved into a tie with Toronto for 10th place in the Eastern Conference. Jonas Valanciunas had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Raptors, losers of six of their last seven. Toronto leading scorer Rudy Gay scored 11 points about seven below his average while being limited to 26 minutes due to foul trouble. Louisville stuns Baylor in regional semifinals Associated PressOKLAHOMA CITY Shoni Schimmel scored 22 points and Monique Reid hit two free throws with 2.6 seconds left to lift sixthseeded Louisville to a stunning 82-81 upset of top-ranked, defending national champion Baylor on Sunday night in the regional semifinals of the NCAA womens tournament. Odyssey Sims scored 29 points and hit a pair of free throws with 9.1 seconds left to give the Lady Bears (34-2) their only lead of the game. Reid caught an inbounds pass near the baseline after that and went coast to coast before getting fouled by All-American Brittney Griner on her way to the basket. Sims had one last chance to save Baylors season after Reids free throws but was off-target and late on a desperation heave. The Lady Bears had been practically invincible for the past four months, winning 32 straight games mostly by double digits. It was the end of a remarkable college career for Griner, a record-setting 6-foot-8 post player who ended up as the secondhighest scoring player in NCAA history. Griner, who had averaged 33 points in Baylor's first two games in the tournament, wound up with 14 points and 10 rebounds, making only four of her 10 shots. Louisville (27-8) tied an NCAA record with 16 3-pointers to pull off the upset.Oklahoma City regional No. 2 Tennessee 74, No. 6 Oklahoma 59OKLAHOMA CITY Kamiko Williams scored 15 points, Cierre Burdick had 13 and second-seeded Tennessee routed Oklahoma 74-59 in the regional semifinals of the NCAA womens tournament. The Lady Vols (27-7) opened a 20-point lead in the first half and never let Oklahoma make a comeback, improving to 26-5 in regional semifinals. Tennessee will face No. 5 seed Louisville Tuesday night in the round of eight. The Lady Vols have lost in the regional finals the past two seasons and havent made it to the Final Four since winning the national title in 2008. Sharane Campbell scored 22 points and Joanna McFarland had 14 for No. 6 seed Oklahoma (24-11), which got an upset to make it to the round of 16, but couldnt capitalize on a friendly home environment in the Oklahoma City regional. McFarland also matched her career best with 16 rebounds.Norfolk regional No. 1 N. Dame 93, No. 12 Kansas 63NORFOLK, Va. Skylar Diggins scored 22 of her 27 points by halftime and became the schools career scoring leader, helping the top-seeded Fighting Irish to a 93-63 victory against Kansas in the semifinals of the Norfolk Regional. And Diggins made it look easy, adding nine assists and three steals, and scoring nine straight during a 16-2 first-half run that put the Irish (34-1) ahead to stay. The victory was the 29th in a row for Notre Dame, and left the Irish one victory shy of a third consecutive trip to the Final Four. Carolyn Davis led the upstart Jayhawks (20-14) with 25 points on 11-for-17 shooting.No. 2 Duke 53, No. 6 Nebraska 45NORFOLK, Va. Tricia Liston scored 17 points and Duke shook off a slow start to beat Nebraska 53-45 in the semifinals of the Norfolk Regional of the womens NCAA tournament.

Chicago led 3-0 at the end of the first period after scoring on its first three shots in a 1:39 span in the games first four-and-a-half minutes.Flyers 5, Capitals 4, OTPHILADELPHIA Ruslan Fedotenko scored 1:34 into overtime after Kimmo Timonen got the tying goal with 9.5 seconds left in regulation and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Washington Capitals 5-4. Maxime Talbot, Matt Read and Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers, who moved within two points of the idle New York Rangers and New York Islanders for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Capitals are a point ahead of Philadelphia in a jumbled East.Kings 3, Stars 2DALLAS Brad Richardson and Justin Williams scored third-period goals just over a minute apart to help lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars Jeff Carter also scored his 20th goal of the season for Los Angeles, which has lost just once in regulation in Dallas in its last 14 visits (11-1-2) and outshot the Stars 40-15. Jonathan Bernier needed to make just 15 saves for the Kings. Jamie Benn and Ray Whitney scored for Dallas.Blue Jackets 2, Ducks 1, OTCOLUMBUS, Ohio Mark Letestu set up the only goal in regulation and scored the game-winner in overtime, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 29 of 30 shots to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

Associated PressKEY BISCAYNE Andy Murray erased a championship point Sunday and rallied past David Ferrer 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (1) in a grueling, dramatic final at the Sony Open. One point from defeat in the last set, Murray skipped a forehand off the baseline to stay in the match. He then dominated the tiebreaker, while Ferrer appeared to cramp and collapsed to the court after one long exchange. The match was filled with grinding baseline rallies, including at least a dozen of more than 20 strokes and one lasting 34. Murray and Ferrer dueled for 2 hours, 45 minutes. Murray became the first Key Biscayne mens champion to save a championship point. Both of us fought as hard as we could, both struggling physically at the end, Murray said. I just managed to come through. Murray also won the title in 2009. His path to this years championship was made easier because Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal skipped the tournament and Novak Djokovic lost in the fourth round. Murray will now move ahead of Federer to No. 2 in the rankings behind Djokovic. The No. 3-seeded Ferrer, who was seeking the biggest title of his career, fell to 0-13 against top-five players in finals.

starting his 50th year in pro ball. All-Star shortstop Hanley Ramirez is sidelined for the Dodgers. Around the majors, third basemen Chase Headley of San Diego, David Freese of St. Louis and Brett Lawrie of Toronto will begin the season on the disabled list. Mets third baseman David Wright plans to be in the lineup at Citi Field to take on San Diego. He hurt his ribcage at the World Baseball Classic. I feel good physically, Wright said. It would have been nice to have maybe a few more at-bats toward the end, but I didnt have that luxury. On Tuesday, there are two more openers Baltimore at Tampa Bay, and Cleveland at revamped Toronto. Seven weeks after teams broke out the bats and balls, players seemed ready to get going. Im really prepared. Well, finally spring training is over, it was a long one, Seattle ace Felix Hernandez said Sunday, a day before his start in Oakland. Its another season. Were a different team. Its always special, opening day, not for me but for all the guys, he said. side of the court toward Michigan fans behind press row with fingers raised. Fans were chanting, Its great to be a Michigan Wolverine! And great to be young. Seeing it all come together, I dont what to say, sixth-year Wolverines coach John Beilein said. Im a little bit speechless. Michigan hadnt reached the Final Four since consecutive finals appearances in 1992 and 1993, the freshman and sophomore seasons of the Fab Five Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Ray Jackson and Jimmy King. With four wins in this NCAA tourney, the Wolverines already have more tournament victories than their total from the end of the Fab Five era to this season. They had one win in 1998, and then didnt even make the field again until 2009. Despite being the only team to make regional finals each of the last three seasons, the Gators havent been to the Final Four since winning consecutive national titles in 2006 and 2007 for coach Billy Donovan. Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy, the four-year seniors who came in not long after those titles, will leave without one of their own. They were part of the only Gators class to win consecutive outright SEC regular-season championships, but came up short in the biggest games. Florida is the first team to make it to three consecutive regional finals without winning at least one of them, according to STATS LLC. Wyoming lost in the round of eight from 1947-49, but that stretch ended two years before the NCAA tournament expanded to more than eight teams. I feel more upset for Boynton, (Mike) Rosario and Murphy, who dont get a chance and have come so close, Donovan said. This one, we didnt play well enough or deserve to win. Boynton and Will Yeguete had 13 points apiece for the Gators. The Gators were able to recover from an early deficit against Florida Gulf Coast for a 62-50 win Friday night on the raised stage at Cowboys Stadium. It was another story facing Big Blue. After McGary started the scoring with a layup, Stauskas made a behind-theback pass to McGary for a slam before making his first 3-pointer less than a half-minute after that. Burke passed to McGary for a layup before driving for one of his own. McGarys jumper made it 13-0 only 3:05 into the game. Stauskas, who was 2 of 12 from 3-point range the first three games of this NCAA tourney, was on target against the Gators. The 6-foot-6 guard from Canada put the Wolverines up by 24 with 4:08 left in the first half after two consecutive 3s from the left corner in 27 seconds. I cant even explain the feeling. I was having so much fun, Stauskas said. Ive been working and dreaming my whole life about something like this. To finally have it, I have a smile on my face and Im enjoying the moment. Florida missed its first seven shots before Yeguete made a layup more than 3 1/2 minutes into the game. It was a rough finale for Murphy, who twice thought he had easy baskets in front of him only to have the shots blocked. Murphy had eight rebounds, but finished 0-of-11 shooting and was scoreless for the first time this season. Murphy was clearly devastated, staring at the floor with slumped shoulder in the locker room after the game. Just missed shots, Murphy said, barely loud enough to be heard, and answering in short spurts. Our defense was bad. Even with an 11-2 run late in the first half punctuated by Boyntons 3-pointer, the Gators were still down by 15 with a minute to go in the first half. But the Wolverines were able to score even after it appeared that the half had ended; Burke was already heading off the court pumping his right arm toward the Michigan fans. Stauskas was fouled on a 3-point attempt with .4 seconds left and, after officials reviewed the play, hit two free throws to give Michigan a 47-30 lead. It was that kind of day for Michigan, and for Florida, as well.Midwest regional No. 1 Louisville 85, No. 2 Duke 63INDIANAPOLIS With tears in their eyes and Kevin Ware in their hearts, there was no way Louisville was losing this game. Russ Smith scored 23 points, Gorgui Dieng had 14 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks and top-seeded Louisville put aside the shock from Wares gruesome leg injury to beat Duke 85-63 and earn a second straight trip to the Final Four. It will be some time before the Cardinals can celebrate this victory, however. Ware, whos played a key role in Louisvilles 14game winning streak, was hospitalized after appearing to snap his lower right leg with 6:33 left in the first half.

To have a putt to win, you want that starting out every week. I would have liked for it to have been closer. Points picked up his final birdie on the par-5 13th when the hole got in the way of his chip and kept the ball from running well past. It instead stopped 3 feet away. He finished at 16-under 272, and the win gives him another two-year exemption. His exemption from the Pebble Beach would have expired this year. More important, the win gets him back to Augusta National in two weeks. Phil Mickelson opened his final round with four straight birdies, and he was still in the picture until a three-putt double bogey on the 14th hole. He had a 68, and wound up six shots behind. Dustin Johnson had the lead at one point until he missed a short birdie putt on the 11th, and then hit his 5-wood into the water on the reachable par-4 12th hole, leading to bogey. He wound up with a 65 and finished two shots behind. Ben Crane, who played alongside Points, had birdie chances on the last two holes that would have dropped if he had hit them hard enough. Crane had a 68 and tied for fourth with Johnson. Rory McIlroy was long gone, on his way north to San Antonio, when all this was going on. The worlds No. 2 player closed out his week at the Houston Open by making a 25-foot birdie putt for a 70 and a tie for 45th. McIlroy will play the Texas Open next week before heading to the Masters.Siem of Germany wins by three shots in MoroccoAGADIR, Morocco Marcel Siem of Germany shot a 2-under 70 to win the Hassan II Trophy by three strokes. He earned his third European Tour title with a 17-under 217. Siem held off Finlands Mikko Ilonen and Englands David Horsey, who were tied for second. The French Open champion was four shots ahead overnight but had a slow start with a bogey on the first hole. Three birdies from Siem and a mid-round slump from Ilonen gave him a decisive lead.

Study portrays Bard as ruthless businessmanLONDON New research depicts William Shakespeare as a grain hoarder, moneylender and tax dodger who became a wealthy businessman during a time of famine. Academics from Aberystwyth University in Wales combed through historical archives to uncover details of the playwrights parallel life as a merchant and property owner whose practices sometimes brought him into conflict with the law. He was pursued by authorities for tax evasion, and in 1598 he was prosecuted for hoarding grain during a time of shortage. The academics argue we cant fully understand Shakespeare unless we study his business-savvy side and the era of hunger in which he lived. Researcher Jayne Archer said Sunday that those aspects are overlooked because many people cannot countenance the idea of a creative genius also being motivated by self-interest.Malibu homeowners, celebs struggle with beach-saving planMALIBU, Calif. Malibus celebrity haven of Broad Beach is struggling to survive as nature chews away at the shoreline and a $20 million effort to replace sand appears to be stuck in the mud. Homeowners have run up against opposition and complicated approval processes as they pursue a plan to dredge sand from elsewhere and dump it to restore the 1.1mile beachfront, the Los Angeles Timesreported. In recent years, winter storms and rising high tides have reduced the formerly broad beach, where Steven Spielberg, Dustin Hoffman and others have their beach houses. Waves sometimes lap up to an 8-foot-high 4,100-foot-long emergency rock wall that state regulators allowed homeowners to build about three years ago to protect dozens of multimillion-dollar homes. The (wall) is perilously close to certain homes, said Kenneth A. Ehrlich, an attorney for the homeowners. The homes are certainly in danger. ...Theres no beach right now that anyone can enjoy. Steve Levitan, co-creator of the TV series Modern Family, recalled taking family strolls on the beach but said he now plans walks to avoid high tide. With the reduced footage, surfers cant get out to the good surf spots, and the homeowners cant get there, either, he said. Residents are proposing a $20 million project to dredge tons of sand and transplant it to restore the dunes and shoreline, both public and private. Manhattan Beach blocked plans to use its sand, and residents now are considering using sea-bottom sand from Dockweiler Beach in Los Angeles. However, the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors has objected, saying the sand might be needed to restore other public beaches as sea levels rise. For years, Broad Beach was the subject of feuding between homeowners and the public over access. At one point, security guards were hired to patrol the beach, and sunbathers contended they were harassed. In 2005, 108 property owners took tons of sand from the public beach and packed it up into a berm on their property. The work was ordered halted by the California Coastal Commission. Birthday A number of benefits could come your way in the year ahead, through contacts in large organizations, groups or clubs. Circulate in places where you have a chance to cultivate new friends. Aries (March 21-April 19) Your creativity is skyrocketing, so take advantage of it. Your ideas will be successful, as long as you follow through on them. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Dont despair if your recent schemes have yet to pan out. Check to make sure that youve done everything possible. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Intangible ideas could prove to be of greater value than things of a material nature. This will become very evident today. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Even if benefits are presently coming your way without too much exertion on your part, imagine how much more could happen if you put forth some effort. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) It could be to your benefit to try to help others realize their hopes and expectations. What would be beneficial for them could be of advantage to you as well. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Youre destined to accomplish something of significance that could produce more than a few benefits. However, it may not be apparent that a bonus is on its way it is. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) This is a good day to once again analyze a problem that youve been unable to resolve. A number of solutions that previously eluded you could now become quite obvious. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If an important enterprise in which youre involved has a dire need for something you possess, do your best to deliver. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Even if youre operating well on your own, you would be even more productive with a capable partner. Try to find one with all due haste. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It looks like the career opportunity that youve been looking for is about to come your way. Keep your plans flexible so you can take advantage of it. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Friends are likely to talk to you about all kinds of things, imparting information that they wouldnt reveal to others. What you learn will be useful and then some. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Your financial prospects look to be quite encouraging over the next few days. You could be unusually lucky in ways that could affect your public image.

There are 274 days left in the year. This is April Fools Day. Todays Highlight: On April 1, 1789, the U.S. House of Representatives held its first full meeting in New York; Frederick Muhlenberg of Pennsylvania was elected the first House speaker. On this date: In 1853, Cincinnati, Ohio, established a fire department made up of paid city employees. In 1933, Nazi Germany staged a daylong national boycott of Jewish-owned businesses. In 1939, the United States recognized the government of Gen. Francisco Franco in Spain, the same day Franco went on radio to declare victory in the Spanish Civil War. In 1945, American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II. In 1963, New York Citys daily newspapers resumed publishing after settlement was reached in a 114-day strike. The daytime drama General Hospital premiered on ABC-TV. In 1972, the first Major League Baseball players strike began; it lasted 12 days. In 1976, Apple Computer was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. In 1984, recording star Marvin Gaye was shot to death by his father, Marvin Gay Sr. in Los Angeles, the day before his 45th birthday. (The elder Gay pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, and received probation.) In 1992, the National Hockey League Players Association went on its first-ever strike, which lasted 10 days. Ten years ago: American troops entered a hospital in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, whod been held prisoner since her unit was ambushed on March 23. Five years ago: The Pentagon made public a legal memo dated March 14, 2003 that approved the use of harsh interrogation techniques against terror suspects, saying that President George W. Bushs wartime authority trumped any international ban on torture. (The memo was rescinded in December 2003.)Top executives of the countrys five biggest oil companies told a skeptical Congress they knew record fuel prices were hurting people, but argued it wasnt their fault and that their huge profits were in line with other industries. One year ago: A coalition of more than 70 partners, including the United States, pledged to send millions of dollars and communications equipment to Syrias opposition groups. Todays birthdays: Actress Jane Powell is 85. Actress Ali MacGraw is 75. Rhythm-and-blues singer Rudolph Isley is 74. Reggae singer Jimmy Cliff is 65. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is 63. Director Barry Sonnenfeld is 60. Thought for Today: A caval donato non si guarda in bocca. (Dont look a gift horse in the mouth.) Italian proverb.

Associated PressNEW YORKBeginning work a few years ago on her latest book, an anthology of poems for young people, Caroline Kennedy found herself looking through one of her mothers scrapbooks. She burst into laughter, she says, as she came across a poem that her brother John, as a youngster, had picked out and copied as a gift to their poetry-loving mom. Willie with a thirst for gore, Nailed his sister to the door, went the poem, by an unknown author. Mother said with humor quaint, Careful, Willie, dont scratch the paint! The poem brought back memories of our relationship, Kennedy told a bookstore audience this week. I laughed so hard. But for Kennedy, now 55 and a mother of three grown children, theres a deeper meaning to that irreverent ditty. Poetry was a central part of her home life growing up. She and John regularly copied out and illustrated poems for their mother, Jackie, upon birthdays and Mothers Days. Sometimes, theyd recite them too, if we were feeling competitive. And at family gatherings with their grandmother, there were frequent challenges to recite Henry Wadsworth Longfellows famous (and famously lengthy) Paul Reveres Ride. Only Uncle Ted, it seems, was able to recite it in its entirety. Now, with her 10th book, Kennedy wants to share with young readers the love for the written word that she feels her poetry-filled childhood helped instill in her (even though her own son, she quips, hates reading and only likes two poems.) Hence the title: Poems to Learn By Heart. It was a combination of remembering my own childhood and thinking about gifts Id been given, she said in an interview last week at her husbands downtown Manhattan design firm, explaining the genesis of the latest book. And working in schools and seeing the role that poetry can play in kids lives. Its also an effort to promote literacy, a cause Kennedy has supported in a number of ways. Fourteen percent of American adults cant read, Kennedy says. Its a slow-motion disaster. She believes poetry can help. Kids need a way in, she says, and reading needs to be fun. Poetry can give them that with the current emphasis on poetry slams, and these other open mic events. Thats actually why I think poetry has a chance. Another pet project: Libraries, which she says are still critical places for young people to learn analytical skills. Shes the honorary chair of National Library Week next month. Im into things that are dying out, she quips, then adds that actually theyre not: My son goes to the library all the time (at college.) Theres a lot more socializing at the library than you think. Kennedy asked each of her own three kids Rose and Tatiana, who have finished college, and Jack, who is still there to contribute a favorite poem to her new book. (Tatiana, the bookworm according to her mother, translated a poem from Ovids Metamorphoses, from the original Latin.) But she herself has trouble picking her favorite. Asked by an audience member at her book reading to do just that, though, she settled on Dont Worry if Your Job is Small. Dont worry if your job is small, and your rewards are few, it says. Remember that the mighty oak, was once a nut like you. Caroline Kennedys latest book a collection for kids Fourteen percent of American adults cant read. Its a slow-motion disaster. Kids need a way in, and reading needs to be fun. Caroline Kennedyon why she chose poetry for her latest book. Associated PressLOS ANGELES After a nine-month delay, G.I. Joe: Retaliation deployed to the top spot at the box office. The action film starring Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum as the gun-toting military toys brought to life marched into the No. 1 position at the weekend box office, earning $41.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Retaliation opened Wednesday at midnight, which helped bring its domestic total to $51.7 million. Paramount postponed the sequel to 2009s G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra last May from its original June opening date to convert the film to 3-D. The lastminute switcheroo came just weeks after Battleship, another movie based on a Hasbro toy, sank at the box office. At that time, Paramountalready began its advertising campaign for Retaliation. It certainly vindicates the decision, said Don Harris, the studios head of distribution. Any time you make those sorts of moves, people always assume the worst. The truth is Id seen this movie a long time ago in 2-D, and the movie worked in 2-D. Its not trying to be Schindlers List. This movie is intended to be enjoyed as a big, action spectacle. After debuting in the top spot last weekend, the 3-D animated prehistoric comedy The Croods from DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox slipped to the No. 2 spot with $26.5 million in its second weekend. G.I. Joe commands No. 1 at box office Associated PressRay Park, left, and Dwayne Johnson are pictured in a scene from G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

B6MONDAY, APRIL1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Bridge has survived all these decades for several reasons. For example, there are deals, like this one, that do not follow a normal course. What would a textbook advise West to lead against four spades? But what would he lead if he could see all 52 cards? When a defender has four trumps, it is usually best to try to make declarer ruff something. The defender hopes to reduce declarers trump length down to his own, or, even better, shorter than his. He wants declarer to lose trump control. Thinking along those lines, West led the heart ace. When East signaled enthusiastically with the nine, West led another heart. South tried dummys queen, but East covered with the king. After ruffing, South was tempted to play on trumps, but he mused about Wests lead. West surely had not started with ace-doubleton. And if not, it was a dangerous lead, suggesting that he had long trumps. Declarer cashed his diamond ace, ruffed a diamond on the board, led a club to his king, and ruffed his last diamond. Then he played a trump. West won and led another heart, but South ruffed, cashed his two top trumps, and played on clubs, still having one trump to retain control. Declarer lost only one heart and two spades. On this deal, West has to lead his singleton to defeat the contract. Then, if declarer attacks trumps, West wins and returns the suit. Or, if South exits with a heart before or after ruffing a diamond on the board, East wins and gives his partner a club ruff. Then West cashes the spade ace and plays another spade no fooling!

This year I have two 7-year-old students with major behavior issues. Both of them have threatened to bring a gun to school and shoot me and their classmates. As shocking as it is to hear this from such young children, the response from the people in charge is worse. I reported these threats multiple times, and nothing has been done. No one has even spoken to the boys about their behavior. I was told the kids are young and most likely dont have access to guns. Yet these kids have older siblings who can obtain guns for them. In light of current events, I take these threats seriously. Ive spoken to the principal, vice-principal, school social workers and the boys parents. They all tell me I need to focus on the positive things the kids do. Am I crazy, or are they? What should I do? Quitting my job is not an option. Worried Teacher Dear Teacher: While it is not uncommon for young children to make such threats, they normally do not follow through. However, there is a slim possibility that one of these boys will bring a weapon to school and attempt to use it, especially if he hears news reports about other school shootings. The bigger problem is the major behavior issues. We realize you are fearful, but an alarmed approach is not productive. Are these boys receiving any kind of ongoing counseling or assistance? Perhaps if you approach this as a way to help the children develop better coping skills, the school will address it more directly and effectively. Dear Annie: Please let your readers know of an easy way to support our troops. When buying a new cellphone, donate your old one to the nonprofit Cell Phones for Soldiers through the website cellphonesforsoldiers.com. Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded in 2004 by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist of Norwell, Mass., when they were 12 and 13 years old. The organization converts proceeds from used cellphones into prepaid phone cards for our troops overseas. They have donated more than 181 million minutes to our troops, many of whom could not otherwise afford to call home. Please support those individuals who support our country. Bay St. Louis Dear Bay St. Louis : Thank you for mentioning this very worthwhile organization. We hope our readers will keep it in mind when getting a new cellphone. Dear Annie: I was perplexed by the recent letter from Mr. Manners about bits of food that a diner drops on the plate. He expressed disgust that people pick up the bits with their fingertips, and you concurred that it was proper etiquette to use ones knife to retrieve the droppings. I can display more grace picking up such bits with my fingertips than anyone can with forks and knives. And what about the centuries-old practice of sopping ones bread in leftover juices? However, my real question is: In the grand scheme of things, what difference does it make if a person picks up food bits with the fingers? Durant, Okla. Dear Durant: You may have misunderstood the original letter. When eating peas and other small, hard-to-capture foods, it is best to get them onto ones fork by using a knife or a piece of bread, rather than pushing them with ones fingers. Its unappetizing to watch someone use their fingers. And yes, you can sop bread in leftover juices, as long as you dont make a slurpy mess of it.
