SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS Less than 24 hours after the shooting death of a Floral City woman, the man believed responsible was apprehended in Ocala, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. After his arrest overnight, Gregory Scott Holub, 29, of Bradenton, is facing seconddegree murder charges in the death of Deseray Lynn Bowles, 24, of Inverness. Holub is also charged with aggravated assault, according to CCSO spokeswoman Heather Yates. She said the sheriffs office received a tip that Holub was hiding in Ocala, and with the aid of the Ocala Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office, CCSO agents raided the hideout. In the area that Holub was arrested, our K-9 was able to track to a firearm, Yates said. It is unclear what kind of firearm it was or if it was the gun used to shoot Bowles. Gregory Holubapprended in Ocala. Fine day for fun and flying MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleLongtime Citrus County educator Paul Heinze helps his 4-year-old niece Charlotte DeClerk lift off her kite Monday afternoon at Wallace Brooks Park in Inverness. Temperatures approaching 80 degrees and moderate breezes made for a picture-perfect afternoon for man y outdoor activities.

The crash also left his passenger in critical condition. Gary Lynn McAllister, 60, of Grand Ledge, Mich., and his passenger Janice Kay Bayha, 65, of Eustis, were traveling eastbound on State Road 44 on a 2006 Yamaha Roadstar when a 2004 Lexus struck them, causing the motorcycle to collide with a stopped car. The driver of the Lexus, Leonard J. Decisneros, 96, of Lecanto, was traveling westbound on S.R. 44 and tried to make a left turn onto Crystal Oaks Drive. The stopped vehicle was at the intersection of Crystal Oaks Drive and S.R. 44. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Decisneros failed to observe McAllister and Bayha and drove into the eastbound lane, striking the right side of the motorcycle and launching the riders into the stopped vehicle. McAllister was pronounced dead at the scene and Bayha was transported to Ocala Regional Medical Center. The crash remains under investigation.

Marco Rubio of Florida is serving notice it has to go through him. The tea party favorite made it clear over the weekend he has a make-or-break role for the most sweeping immigration changes in decades. Its a high-risk strategy that also puts his presidential ambitions on the line. Four Republican senators are involved with Democrats in crafting a bipartisan bill to secure the nations borders, improve legal immigration and offer eventual citizenship to millions now in the U.S. illegally. But only Rubio has the conservative bona fides plus life-story credibility to help steer the bill through the Senate with strong support from the GOP and give it a chance in the House, where conservative Republicans hold more sway. More than anyone else, Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, could have the clout to hold off rebellion from conservative talk show hosts and a Republican base whose opposition helped kill immigration changes last time around, in 2007. And perhaps only Rubio could sink the entire effort just by walking away. Drones on the horizon Feds seek public input on programNANCYKENNEDY Staff writerLast year, some innovative engineers in San Francisco had an idea for a Tacocopter, an unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) that could deliver tacos to your house and you wouldnt have to tip a delivery person. That might sound farfetched, but drones are coming. Congress recently approved legislation to allow expanded drone flights over the U.S., and has asked the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) todevelop safety regulationssounmanned aircraft systems can share U.S. skies with manned aircraft by 2015. The FAA predicts as many as 10,000 commercial drones or more could flyby 2020. The March 2013 issue of National Geographic magazine From noon to 2 p.m. W ednesday, April 3, the FAA will hold an online public engagement session. The public will have an opportunity to comment on the agencys proposed privacy policy for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The FAA will provide a brief overview of the UAS test site program and proposed privacy policy and then take comments from participants. Each participant will have three minutes for comments. The FAA encourages the public to provide comments to the docket. The FAA will listen and record all comments, but will not answer any questions during the session.

Looking for a local farm cooperative? Consider membership with The Path Farm Co-op. Sign up now while memberships are still available for the summer season, April 1 through Sept. 30. Call 352-527-6500, ext. 8, for membership price, payment options, questions or to sign up. The Path Farm Co-op offers families the opportunity to enjoy a variety of healthy vegetables. This seasons crop includes varieties of okra, eggplant, peppers (hot varieties and bell), zucchini, yellow squash, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and more. Most vegetables are harvested within 24 hours of the time they are received. That means they have less time to lose their flavor and nutritional value. The Path Farm grows naturally using environment-friendly resources like worm castings, river muck and other nutrient-rich resources. Supporting The Paths Farm Co-op means helping the men and women at The Path shelter improve their lifestyles. The Path grows, harvests and prepares each co-op basket all co-op members have to do is pick it up. The vegetables participants receive vary in size and appearance and are those that grow best in the area during the spring and summer growing seasons. Participants who make a financial commitment by purchasing a six-month membership take the same risk as the farmer in terms of weather conditions, and receive a basket of locally grown vegetables on a weekly basis. The Path has also been able to offer U Pick It days, an opportunity for co-op members to pick their own produce. The Path leads to good health Support better lifestyle with naturally grown vegetables, no pesticides ChronicleThis seasons crop at The Path Farm Co-op includes okra, eggplant, peppers and zucchini. Bowles was shot and killed during the early hours of Easter Sunday. Investigators believe she was in a vehicle with another person on Rabbit Lane in Floral City when the shooting occurred. The person she was with drove her to Sleepy Hollow restaurant on nearby Gobbler Drive, where deputies responded. Bowles was subsequently transported to Citrus Memorial hospital where she died from her injuries. Deputies went on a massive manhunt following the shooting, looking for a man 6 feet tall, about 180 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. Communications dispatchers received the initial call at 3:49 a.m. Sunday. Yates said investigators later received a tip Holub was holed up in Ocala. Yates said Holub is not related to Bowles, but it is unclear if they knew each other. ARRESTContinued from Page A1 reported more than 1,000 companies are currently in the drone business. Predator drones spot smugglers and illegal immigrants, and Global Hawks help NASA record atmospheric data and investigate hurricanes. About a dozen police departments, including Miami and Seattle, have applied to the FAA for permits to fly drones and as many as 18,000 other U.S. law enforcement agencies are potential customers. Recently in Hernando County, the Hernando County Aviation Authority applied to have Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport considered as a drone testing site for the FAA. This drew a small but vocal group of protestors outside the Hernando County Courthouse on Saturday, March 23, including protestors from Citrus County. Theyve since scratched the project but we came close, and thats worrisome, said Edna Mattos, a member of the Citrus County Tea Party and one of the protestors. These drones have wingspans that are 40 two 45 feet these are big and they crash, she said. We got involved because even though its Hernando County, theyd be flying in this area, too, and we dont know what dangers they pose to a community. What if one crashes into an elementary school or a senior center or on the parkway? We need assurances that theyre relatively safe, she said. Also, what are they going to be used for? How are they going to be tested and for how long? Safety isnt the only issue that concerns people. Matt Schnackenberg, chairman of the Libertarian Party of Hernando County, said drones pose a potential violation of Fourth Amendment rights (which guards against unreasonable search and seizure). For example, an individual could be driving a car and a drone could be flying behind you, tailing you. Theres the potential for you being tracked for no real reason, just to make sure youre not breaking the law, Schnackenberg said. Mattos said they werent opposed to technology or progress; they simply want transparency and accountability. If youre going to experiment, we want to know what youre going to do and how far its going to go, she said. I want to know that my rights are going to be protected.

During their Monday morning show on Gator Country 101.9, Val St. John and Scott Fish used a decades-old hoax, announcing that dihydrogen monoxide was coming out of Lee County taps. Dihydrogen monoxide is actually just another name for water. Tony Renda, general manager at the station, didnt find the joke funny. The News-Press reported he immediately pulled the duo and began airing a retraction and apology. Lee County Utilities spokeswoman Patty DiPiero said they had to spend the morning assuring concerned callers their water was safe.Around theSTATE Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida lawmakers have complained for eight years that they cant even accept a cup of coffee under the lobbyist gift ban. They could have that cup of coffee under a bill that won its first committee approval Monday. Sen. Tom Lee, who is given credit for the gift ban passed in 2005, is sponsoring the bill (SB 1344). He said it tweaks the zero-tolerance gift ban without going back to the days when lobbyists routinely spent tons of money on expensive meals and drinks for lawmakers. Lees proposal would allow exceptions for one non-alcoholic beverage. It would also allow a meal, beverage and registration fees for a scheduled meeting or event in which the lawmaker is asked to speak or make a presentation. Another exception would allow the use of meeting space in government to government events. Its very narrowly drafted and as long as youre having a single meal in a single sitting associated with a speaking engagement, I dont think theres much opportunity for us to go awry, said Lee, RBrandon. And if lawmakers do accept a meal at an event at which theyre speaking, they will have to report it. I want to thank Sen. Lee for tweaking this law. It was needed, said Sen. Arthenia Joyner, who has complained in the past about not being able to accept a bottle of water when visiting district schools. Lee originally drafted the bill to allow lawmakers to accept meals up to $25 at widely attended events that the media were also allowed to attend, but removed the language because it was difficult to write it so that it couldnt be exploited. Its unfortunate, but bad apples spoil the bunch, said Lee. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCitrus County Sheriffs Fire Rescue Chief Larry Morabito has been trying to spread word about the virtues of fire sprinkler systems. And recently, a fire at a local apartment complex thwarted by a sprinkler system offers perhaps the best illustration of the importance of having one, especially in single-family homes, Morabito said. People would install sprinkler systems in their lawns, but would not do it for the house, where it could help save their own lives and those of their loved ones, Morabito said. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire in the home poses one of the biggest threats to people. In the U.S., fire departments responded to an average of 371,700 home structure fires per year during the five-year-period of 2006-10, according to the organization. About 350,000 of the fires occurred in homes without automatic extinguishing equipment (sprinkler systems). The group estimates an average of 2,600 civilian deaths, 12,900 civilian injuries, $7.2 billion in direct property damage, and 25,600 firefighter injuries at the fire ground or the scene per year. Locally, Morabito cites what recently happened at the Mayo Apartments near Crystal River as an example of what needs to be heeded. In 2009, there was a fire at one of the buildings and it went to the roof and more than 50 percent of the building was damaged. They didnt have a sprinkler system, Morabito said. But per code, when they rebuilt, they had to have a sprinkler system installed. It is currently not a requirement for single family homes to have sprinkler systems. In February, someone at Mayo Apartments left something on the stove to run to the store and it started a fire. But because the sprinkler system deployed when the flames reached 160 degrees, the fire was doused before it could spread. So, they ended up with some water damage and I think maybe a couple of apartments downstairs from them had some water damage. By having the system, the owner of that complex was saved a lot of money and disruption to the other residents, Morabito said. He is now urging homeowners and builders to make it a priority to install the systems. For builders of developments, he is even suggesting arrangements where requirements such as wider roads in subdivisions can be substituted for sprinkler systems. Subdivisions are usually required to have certain size roads to accommodate firefighting equipment. But with a sprinkler system, the thinking is some that equipment may not be necessary so they can have smaller roads. This will help the builders save some money and the homeowners can also get breaks on their insurance if they install the systems, Morabito said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

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

Birthday In coming months, you could be luckier than usual in bringing things to successful conclusions. Although you should be able to depend on Lady Lucks help, you must also lend a hand. Aries (March 21-April 19) Be extremely careful that you dont achieve your purposes at the expense of someone else. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Usually you can do quite well in partnership situations, but this isnt likely to be the case if your aims differ considerably from the other party. Gemini (May 21-June 20) A potentially profitable endeavor that has been dormant for quite some time could become active, but youll need to redesign it in order to capitalize on it. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Dont get too closely involved with someone who has a dubious reputation. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If youre giving a price quote for a job or service, be sure your estimated cost is as accurate as possible. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When required to manage a serious situation for another, dont treat it indifferently. If you make a mistake, everyone will pay. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If youre not on top of things, someone might seize the reins and make a decision in his or her best interests, not yours. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Guard against an inclination to hold on to an idea long after it has proven to be unproductive. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Strive to be logical when making an assessment that would directly affect your financial position. It would likely prove to be disastrous to put all of your hopes on Lady Luck. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) In order to be a true leader, you must not be afraid to take charge of situations, even if you dont have a lot personally invested in their outcome. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Several important objectives can be achieved today, provided you dont trip over your own feet. Chances are it will be self-inflicted obstacles that will be your nemesis. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Be careful, because a well-intentioned friend might offer you some advice that, if you treat it as gospel, could prove to be costly. Listen to more than one source for counsel. TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Tuesday, April 2, the 92nd day of 2013. There are 273 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On April 2, 1863, during the Civil War, the Richmond Bread Riot erupted in the Confederate capital as a mob made up mostly of women, outraged over food shortages and risingprices, attacked and looted stores. On this date: In 1513, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon and his expedition landed in present-day Florida. In 1792, Congress passed the Coinage Act, which authorized establishment of the U.S. Mint. In 1912, the just-completed RMS Titanic left Belfast to begin its sea trials eight days before the start of its ill-fated maiden voyage. In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress to declare war against Germany, saying, The world must be made safe for democracy. (Congress declared war four days later.) In 1932, aviator Charles A. Lindbergh and John F. Condon went to a cemetery in The Bronx, N.Y., where Condon turned over $50,000 to a man in exchange for Lindberghs kidnapped son. (The child, who was not returned, was found dead the following month.) Ten years ago: During the Iraq War, American forces fought their way to within sight of the Baghdad skyline. Five years ago: President George W. Bush suffered a diplomatic setback when NATO allies rebuffed his pleas to put former Soviet republics Ukraine and Georgia on the path toward membership. One year ago: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled, 5-4, that jailers may perform invasive strip searches on peoplearrested even for minor offenses. Todays birthdays: Singer Leon Russell is 71. Actress Linda Hunt is 68. Singer Emmylou Harris is 66. Social critic and author Camille Paglia is 66. Actor Christopher Meloni is 52.

If the first-term senator decides against the bill, that just takes all the oxygen out of the room, said Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union. It may pass the Senate with Democrats support ... but thats not the kind of support you want out of the Senate if you expect passage out of the House. With that unique status, Rubio is walking a fine line. Hes helping negotiate the politically combustible legislation, which the bipartisan group is expected to unveil next week, while also taking care to maintain the conservative support that makes him so important to the process in the first place. For Rubio, more so than the other Republicans involved Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina theres danger in a fullthroated embrace of comprehensive immigration legislation. For some conservatives, it will always be toxic: Its a priority for Democrats and President Barack Obama that some foes see as granting amnesty to millions of lawbreakers. But Rubio also could see the biggest political payoff. Helping shepherd a comprehensive immigration bill to passage could win support from Hispanic voters that could be critical if he runs for president in 2016. GOP nominee Mitt Romneys dismal showing among Hispanic and Asian voters last November helped seal his loss, and McCain and many other Republicans warn that the GOP risks permanent minority status if it doesnt resolve the immigration issue. If hes the guy who helps navigate a reform package over the finish line in a way that brings conservatives along and makes Latinos happy, then his viability as a GOP candidate in 2016 goes way up, said Frank Sharry, executive director of Americas Voice, a group that advocates a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. All of this helps explain Rubios caution as the debate moves forward, an approach that was on display this past weekend. As Graham and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., were appearing on Sunday talk shows to all but declare an immigration deal completed after a hardwon agreement between business and labor on a new low-skilled worker program Rubio was putting out a different message: Not so fast. Reports that the bipartisan group of eight senators have agreed on a legislative proposal are premature, Rubio said in a statement that caused some consternation among immigration advocates. Even once there is a bill, he said, it will only be a starting point, the precursor to what he suggested should be lengthy committee hearings and debate, not to mention full consideration by the American public. Schumer hurried to dispute the notion of a disagreement between Rubio and himself, calling their difference semantics and praising Rubio as an active and strong participant in the negotiations. He is protecting some of the things that he thinks are very important in the bill, Schumer said on NBCs Meet the Press. But I dont think thatll stand in the way in any way of any final agreement. Obama spokesman Jay Carney said Monday the White House was encouraged by the positive comments over the weekend, but he was far from claiming victory. He said, The process continues and is not finished. He wouldnt comment on Rubios cautionary remarks.

Associated PressTRAVERSE CITY, Mich. It was the largest algae bloom in Lake Eries recorded history a scummy, toxic blob that oozed across nearly one-fifth of the lakes surface during the summer and fall of 2011. It sucked oxygen from the water, clogged boat motors and washed ashore in rotting masses that turned beachgoers stomachs. It was also likely an omen of things to come, experts said in a study released Monday. The warming climate and modern farming practices are creating ideal conditions for gigantic algae formations on Lake Erie, which could be potentially disastrous to the surrounding areas multibillion-dollar tourist economy. The shallowest and southernmost of the Great Lakes, Erie contains just 2 percent of their combined waters but about half their fish. According to the report, which was compiled by more than two dozen scientists, the 2011 runaway bloom was fueled by phosphorus-laden fertilizers that were swept from corn and soybean fields during heavy rainstorms. The combination of natural and man-made circumstances is unfortunately consistent with ongoing trends, which means that more huge algal blooms can be expected in the future unless a scientifically guided management plan is implemented for the region, said the reports lead author, Anna Michalak, of the Carnegie Institution for Science. The U.S. and Canada limited the use of phosphate laundry detergents and cracked down on Great Lakes pollution from industry and municipal sewage systems four decades ago. Those policies led to a drastic algae drop-off in Lake Erie, which had been declared all but dead. But algae began creeping back in the mid1990s, and the blooms have gotten progressively bigger. They consist largely of blue-green strains that are poisonous and cause skin irritation. Measurements in 2011 found that concentrations of a liver toxin they produce were hundreds of times higher than levels approved by the World Health Organization for drinking and recreational waters. Published in the online version of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the report said soil management practices in the regions corn and soybean fields are partly to blame. The lakes algae cover was about 90 percent smaller during drought-stricken 2012. Another group of scientists convened by the International Joint Commission,a U.S.-Canadian agency that deals with boundary waters, is developing recommendations for solving Lake Eries toxic algae problem. A draft version is scheduled to be released in May. Gloria Paprzcki, 73CRYSTAL RIVERGloria Rose Paprzycki, 73, of Crystal River, Fla., passed away Saturday, March 30, 2013, at home.

A study released Monday said the warming climate and modern farming practices are creating ideal conditions for gigantic algae formations on Lake Erie. The shallowest and southernmost of the Great Lakes, Erie contains just 2 percent of their combined waters but about half their fish. Associated PressCLEARWATER, Fla. The oldest person in the United States has died at age 113, just weeks before her 114th birthday. A spokeswoman from Elsie Thompsons church in Clearwater, Fla., said she died March 21.

Pizza Hut rolls out new cheese crustNEW YORK Pizza Hut has found a new way to feed Americans more cheese a pizza crust made of little cheese-stuffed bread bowls. The chain on Wednesday is introducing a new pizza that comes surrounded by 16 semi-circles of cheese that can be pulled off and eaten separately. The Crazy Cheesy Crust, which will be available for several weeks, isnt the first time Pizza Hut has incorporated cheese into its crusts. In 1995, the chain introduced its stuffed crust pizza as a limited-time offer but the pies were such a hit that they soon became a permanent part of the menu. Even as fast-food chains increasingly look to cater to health-conscious diners, Pizza Huts latest invention shows Americans still have an appetite for indulgent new creations. Burger King, for example, recently rolled out its first turkey burger as part of a limited-time spring menu. But the menu also included a burger stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese, as well as tater tots stuffed with bacon and sweet onions. Pizza Hut has also offered variations of the cheesestuffed crust with pepperoni and other toppings hidden inside. Fast-food fanatics may also notice that the latest pizza has a similar shape to the chains Crown Crust pie that was introduced in the Middle East a year ago. That pie, which comes surrounded by mini-cheeseburgers, isnt available in the U.S., but images of it have circulated widely online. In Japan and Thailand, Pizza Hut has also offered pizzas with hot dogstuffed crusts.Argentina defends payment planBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Argentina says its plan for paying $1.4 billion in defaulted debt is fully within the spirit of U.S. court rulings. But Wall Street analysts say the offer, a mix of new bonds to be paid out over the next 25 years, looks nothing like the letter of the law as the appellate court sees it. They say it boils down to just onesixth of what Argentina was told to hand over in cash. Many experts looking over the weekend at what President Cristina Fernandezs government filed with the court at midnight Friday said a new default by Argentina is now much more likely. And some are predicting that if Argentina loses, it will try to take its money out of U.S. banks, rather than submit to U.S. justice.Patent rejection could reverberateThe India Supreme Courts rejection of a patent for an improved version of a costly cancer drug by Novartis AG could have big implications for the worlds largest drugmakers. The ruling, which was handed down on Monday, signals the latest shift in the world of drug development in emerging markets such as India and Brazil, where drugmakers have been looking for growth. Western governments routinely grant patents for slightly improved versions of medicines whose patents are about to expire. That enables drugmakers to get many patients to upgrade to their new, generally more expensive versions rather than the cheaper, generic knockoffs even though some doctors and patients argue that the improvements dont justify the high cost. But India, Indonesia and some other developing countries have been bucking that trend. Theyve been shooting down Western patents and licensing local pharmaceutical companies to make cheap generic versions of medicines that most of their residents otherwise could not afford. Major drugmakers such as Pfizer and Bayer AG on Monday declined to say what they might do regarding the ruling.

Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market got off to a slow start in April, edging lower after the Standard and Poors 500 index eclipsed its all-time high last week. The main catalyst was a slowdown in U.S. manufacturing growth last month. The decline in the Institute for Supply Managements benchmark manufacturing index for March was worse than economists had forecast. Stocks started falling shortly after the report came out at 10 a.m. and stayed lower the rest of the day. The Dow Jones industrial average closed 5.69 points, or 0.04 percent, lower at 14,572.85. The Standard & Poors 500 index dropped 7.02 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,562.17. Industrial companies fell 1 percent, the most in the S&P. 3M, which makes Post-it notes, industrial products and construction materials, fell 66 cents, or 0.6 percent, to $105.65. Caterpillar, a maker of construction and mining equipment, dropped $1.33, or 1.5 percent, to $85.64. Investors have raised their expectations for the U.S. economy as the market has climbed this year, said JJ Kinahan, chief derivatives strategist at TD Ameritrade. The Dow is up 11.2 percent in 2013, the S&P 9.5 percent. The numbers have to be outstanding in order to drive the market higher, Kinahan said. Its a different mindset when were at these levels. The S&P 500 closed the first quarter at an all-time high of 1,569.19, surpassing its previous record close of 1,565.15 set on Oct. 9, 2007. The index has recaptured all of its losses from the financial crisis and the Great Recession. The Dow broke through its previous all-time high March 5. The market has risen this year because of optimism that housing is recovering and that employers and starting to hire again. Strong company earnings and continuing stimulus from the Federal Reserve have also increased demand for stocks. Small stocks fared worse than large ones Monday. The Russell 2000, a benchmark of smallcompany stocks, fell 1.3 percent to 938.78, paring its gain for the year to 10.5 percent. It was the indexs biggest decline in more than a month. The Nasdaq composite fell 28.35 points, or 0.9 percent, to 3,239.17. April is historically the second-strongest month for stocks, Deutsche Bank analysts said in report released Monday. The S&P 500 has gained an average of 1.4 percent in April, based on returns since 1960, making it the second strongest month after December. The last meaningful setback for stocks started before Novembers election. The market slid 6 percent between Oct. 1 and Nov. 15 in the run-up to the vote and immediately afterwards on concerns that Washington would be unable to enact reforms to keep the economy growing. Evidence that growth is continuing, despite the political tensions in Washington, have kept stocks on an upward trajectory since then, leaving investors waiting for dips to add to their holdings. Id love to have some sort of a pullback here because Id think its an opportunity, said Scott Wren, an equity strategist at Wells Fargo Advisors. But it doesnt feel like were going to have one in the near term. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to its price, fell to 1.84 percent from 1.85 percent.

Page A8TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 2013 Thanks for clearing watersThank you for making a huge improvement in Hunters Spring. When I bought here in Magnolia Lodge Condos in 1984, the view was truly clear to the white sand bottom. Please do not let anyone or any group halt this impressive start to saving manatees and our beautiful Crystal River waters. My prayers are with you.Elaine Palmer Falling Waters, W.Va. seasonal Crystal River resident Adams off base in proposalWhile your March 10 editorial, No soliciting business as elected leader, is correctly critical of Commissioner Adams, it fails to adequately address the depth of the shortcomings of Mr. Adams actions and his thought (or perhaps thoughtless) process. The editorial appears to make comparison between Commissioner Adams actions and hypothetical actions by other commissioners to seek county business. However, Commissioner Adams was not seeking county business; rather, he was attempting to divert business from the county to a company in which he maintains an ownership interest. Had his efforts resulted in the transfer by F.D.S. Disposal to the Sumter County landfill in which Adams has an interest, the result would have been financially devastating to the Citrus County landfill operation. Given that this was the plain and uncontested purpose for Adams arranging the contact, Adams committed an egregious breach of his fiduciary duty to the citizens whom he was elected to represent and, indeed, serve.Elwood R. Harding Jr. Beverly HillsDo not suspend impact feesThe Citrus County Builders Association wants the County Commissioners to suspend impact fees until the next study is done in 2014. I dont believe this is a good idea. We have lost a great deal of revenue from Duke Energy and this would only add more loss of revenue. The rationale for impact fees was that new construction puts additional demands on county services. Nothing has changed; new construction will result in more demand. It also is not fair to all of us who have already paid, or will pay impact fees in the future. Let the fees stand. Jan Malinowski Beverly HillsA national disgraceThe way our veterans are treated is disgraceful. This is not only an insult to our veterans but to all Americans, veterans or not. Remember the Walter Reed Army Medical Center disaster? So far nothing led to a dramatic improvement to help the veterans. The only solution I can think of is a massive protest by all Americans like in the times of the civil rights movements. We are wasting billions of dollars and helping everybody in the world except our veterans. Are we as Americans willing to pay the price of such nationwide protest to help our veterans?Wolfgang Schwenker Hernando If there is anything that links the human to the divine, it is the courage to stand by a principle when everybody else rejects it. Abraham LincolnHistory is full of warnings about what happens when people follow public opinion instead of standing by their principles. In its most extreme manifestation, public opinion might well become mob rule when vigilantes take the law into their own hands. Major media have whipped the crowd into its latest frenzy over same-sex marriage, or should I say marriage equality, the latest euphemism, likely intended to make the masses more accepting of what was once unacceptable. And the masses, which increasingly answer none when asked about any religious affiliation or moral code, appear ready for it. The U.S. Supreme Court, not the Supreme Judge, now rules supreme. But there are consequences for living as one pleases. Look at the fallout that our culture continues to experience from the s generation and its throwing off of the ideals and structures of mainstream society. The Age of Aquarius, and its countercultural revolution, has given way to an increase in drug use, no-fault divorce, cohabitation, out-of-wedlock births and abortion. Everythings fair game. Nothings off limits. Anything goes. Now, we are about to witness the latest cultural domino to fall. Imagine states without boundaries and speed without limits. What same-sex marriage proponents seem to be asking the Court to do is to remove ancient boundary lines for human relationships based on what they wish to do. That opens the door to anything and everything else, depending on how well organized they are and what political clout they can muster. Personal experience, like that of Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), who announced recently that his son is gay, is now supposed to trump Scripture and the will of California voters? While most politicians take their oaths of office on the Bible, many of them prove by their actions that they dont believe, or follow, whats in it. Better they should place their hands on Rolling Stone or People magazines, which more accurately reflect the direction and attitude of contemporary culture. Perhaps Kim Kardashian should decide where the country stands on same-sex marriage? Its when individuals, not God, become the standard by which truth and right and wrong are judged that we get a Supreme Court deciding our ultimate direction. Some liberals believe the Constitution is a living document that must constantly evolve to fit the times. It is not. Some liberal theologians believe the same about the Scriptures. They believe these, too, must evolve, because serving God is no longer the standard; serving Man is. Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games trilogy has observed: ... collective thinking is usually short-lived. Were fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self-destruction. In his 1882 play, An Enemy of the People, Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen wrote, Public opinion is an extremely mutable thing. Indeed it is and the fickle public, relying on the opinion of others, instead of eternal truths, to shape beliefs, is treading on very thin ice that has already begun to crack. Following public opinion can and usually does, lead to moral, social and political anarchy. I give you the Roman Empire and the ancient city of Corinth, in the event that anything about history and how it can repeat itself, absent immutable principles, is being adequately taught in schools today.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tmseditors @tribune.com. Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God, but never without belief in a devil.Eric Hoffer, The True Believer, 1951 Beware public opinion CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Suncoast Parkway 2 detractors emphasize a belief that the volume of traffic on the Citrus portion would be insufficient to justify the cost. Now state transportation officials are pondering the possibility of scaling back Suncoast 2 from a multilane highway to a two-lane toll road. Accordnig to estimates, a two-lane extension could knock the cost from $500 million to $200 million to $300 million. The Suncoast Parkway makes sense for Citrus County for several reasons, among them:The primary existing north-south arteries U.S. 19 and U.S. 41 are already stressed and will become increasingly so in years to come.Much pollution-contaminated runoff from U.S. 19 flows to coastal rivers, bays and marshlands.The appeal of industry to locate operations in Citrus County is greatly hampered by the lack of turnpike/ interstate. State transportation and business leaders are strong advocates of extending the parkway. By scaling back the scope of the work, its increasingly financially feasible. At the same time, that should be balanced against the need to build for decades to come, not short-term demand. Allocating funds for right of way acquisition should be top priority, then pursuing which option two-lane or other can follow. Should the two-lane concept be embraced, if and when traffic volume warrants widening of the highway, that can be done based on demonstrated need. Talk of extending the Suncoast Parkway has new life and momentum in Tallahassee. Nows the time to get the wheels rolling on the extension through Citrus. The cost-containing alternative of initially building it as a two-lane toll road should be incentive to kick the project into high gear. THE ISSUE:Suncoast Parkway extension.OUR OPINION:Scaling back could get project in high gear.

Lets think about it. Weve got to think about our young people and our babies who are growing up. If we dont bring manufacturing in, there wont be any jobs for the future. Lecanto manufacturing does not harm Crystal River or Homosassa tourism in any way. Lets get some manufacturing in here now.More jobs, less idle timeIn response to the No to manufacturers: In my opinion, well have more drug problems. If you have more jobs, you have less time for stuff like that.Jobs bring improvementsThis person who put the article in Sound Off about No to manufacturers, obviously is probably a retired person thats got everything and all the money they need so they want to just sit back in a quiet community and not have to worry about anything else. But for the hundreds of people that could use a job around here, could use some help and some work, its a different story. So if this person doesnt want manufacturers to come into this town, why dont he go live in the woods where its quiet and nobody will bother him there. And then let the rest of this county try to improve itself, improve the economy, get some manufacturers into this area so jobs and the standard of living can be improved. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects. You do not need to leave your name, and have less than a minute to record.

CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE GET ROLLING Hot Corner:MANUFACTURING SoundOFF Just buy newBad info embarrasses government. Is the Chronicle delirious? This piece of equipment hasnt been covered by any warranty for years. The county has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars fixing it multiple times. If they keep doing this, we will own a $1 million piece of equipment that will still continue to break down, requiring more expensive repairs. It will be cheaper in the long run if they buy a new one already. And Scott Adams ploys should not be overlooked. Everything he and his handlers do are anti-local government. Wake up already.Keep impact feesThis is in response to the headlinein todays paper, Builders: Suspend impact fees. I dont believe that that is a good idea. What about, they want to ask for a suspension. We are losing a tremendous amount of tax income because of Duke Energy. How can we afford to lose more tax fees? The Builders Association said to put it on suspension until the next study is done. Why not leave it til the next study is done? What a bout the people whove already paid impact fees and all the people who are going to pay impact fees? Its not fair to them or us. Cal ThomasOTHER VOICES

Thanks book loversThank you once again Citrus County. You continue to show your love of books and reading as well as recognition of great bargains. Your support of the Friends of Citrus County Library System and our libraries was fantastic. In the recently completed Spring Book Sale you turned out to shop the many quality books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles and games at discount prices. The spring fundraiser raised $39,671.37 for our libraries and the Citrus County system. Our grand total since FOCCLS began in fall 2001 is $748,557.37 almost a quarter of a million dollars. With the budget constraints on all services, and the even greater use of the libraries, these figures are particularly significant. This money has enabled the libraries to provide new books, including ebooks, and other materials requested by patrons to add even more to our libraries importance and satisfaction in the community. In addition to helping our libraries, the Central Ridge, Coastal Region and Lakes Region friends partners again collected donations for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library project which provides a book a month for children from birth to age 5. Our customers contributed $360 to help defray expenses of $30 a year per child for postage to continue the delivery of these great books. As a direct result, twelve children on the waiting list will receive their books. Our sales are huge undertakings, and we owe their success to many community organizations. We are very grateful to the many individuals and groups who helped to make the spring sale another triumph. The Citrus County Chronicle, as in the past, has been a great cosponsor of the semiannual event. We especially appreciate the help from Deb Kamlot, Sarah Gatling and the staff of the community and news departments including Editor Mike Arnold, reporters Matt Beck and Nancy Kennedy, and editors of the weeklies, as well as the shipping department for use of the truck and driver at the end of the sale. Thank you to Steve Sachewicz and Quest Wealth Management for donating a 2013 Kindle Fire HD to raffle and for underwriting refreshments for our volunteers. His contributions were responsible for more than $1,336 of our total. We also thank WYKETV and Dennis Miller for their continued support; the staff of the Citrus County Auditorium and Parks and Recreation for their friendliness and assistance; the many energetic Rotarians of Inverness for setting up more than 100 tables; the Citrus High School Air Force JROTC students for distributing 930 jampacked banana boxes in set up and for after-sale clean up; the Inverness Walmart SuperCenter for banana boxes and the Crystal River Publix, Crystal River Sweetbay, and Walgreens for supplying plastic bags; and Sue and Tom Smith of Maja Signs & Designs for providing our new Treasures banner and updating our Sales Proceeds banner. Many thanks as well to the entire library staff and our faithful courier, Lee Seagreaves, for their help in collection and delivery of donated materials. The success of these fundraisers also depends on the hard work and devotion of the FOCCLS volunteers. To the 150 Friends who worked this sale, many thanks for your energy and enthusiasm. Finally, and most importantly, we salute the people of Citrus County who make these events possible by their contributions of quality books and by their patronage of the sales. We couldnt succeed without you. FOCCLS accepts your donations year round. Volunteers are now at work sorting, pricing and packing boxes for our next sale, September 27 through October 1, at the Citrus County Auditorium. Please read-returnrecycle. Drop off your gently used books, games, puzzles, CDs and DVDs at the checkout desks of Central Ridge, Coastal or Lakes Region libraries. We look forward to seeing you again in the Fall!Sue Haderer president Friends of the Citrus County Library System HernandoHistory with a heart In 1978 the Citrus County Commissioners decided a nonprofit organization was needed in Citrus County to provide assistance to Citrus County residents in need of help during a crisis, and Citrus United Basket, or as our friends call us, C.U.B., was created. For 35 years the generosity of Citrus Countys contributors has provided us with the resources: food, clothing, furniture, and monetary donations to take care of our neighbors need. C.U.B has quietly gone about meeting the responsibilities outlined in our original charter, with your help People Helping People was born. Over the years the County Commissioners and the city of Inverness have worked together to provide C.U.B. with either a building to work out of the basement of the old courthouse in the early days, or property to place our own buildings on 103 N. Mill Ave., Inverness, where we are currently located. During the years there have been many changes. In keeping with the forward movement of growth and progress, the city of Inverness continues to improve and upgrade their downtown area and waterfront properties. The property we currently utilize falls into these plans. In our 35 years together, the residents of Citrus County have continued to support us. Through the kindness of many, we have purchased property on U.S. 41 North, and our building fund is at approximately 60 percent of our total goal for our new building which will become our permanent home. Our commitment to helping Citrus County residents facing temporary hardship is as strong today as it was in the beginning, with your help we will continue to meet the needs of the community. Happy 35th Anniversary thank you Citrus County for making it possible. Citrus United Basket would like to invite you to help us celebrate. Look for our building awareness events during 2013. We kickedoff our year this spring at the Citrus County Fair where our third annual boat raffle tickets will be available. We will have special events throughout the year to commemorate. 2013 Building help, building hope, building community, building awareness and we are building a new building. Drive by our property on 41 in Inverness and look for our banner. Watch our goal meter to check on our progress. And join us in anticipation as the building process develops. Please join us in building our future a future in which we continue doing what we do with your help. Call us at 352-344-2242, email us at cubcxec direciDr@embarqmail. com, visit us at 103 Mill Ave., Inverness, or like us on Facebook. Thank you for being a part of People Helping People 1978 to 2013 and beyond.Jennifer Campbell director People Helping People Protecting our rights as militiaAs I continue to read the babble in this paper about our Constitutional rights, in particular our Second Amendment, I am sadly amused by the number of people who spout off about our rights to own and bear arms, clearly demonstrating they do not have a clue about what our Founding Fathers were doing when they created our founding documents. Our Constitution, from start to finish, refers to by the people, for the people and of the people and most definitely not by the federal government, state government or the military, which are tools of the people and are subject to the people. The Second Amendment was created to give the people the right to defend themselves from attacks from without and within; therefore the words militia and the people, in the Second Amendment, mean exactly the some thing. E.G. Yerian is not the first to try to split the militia and the people in the Second Amendment and without a doubt will not be the last, but it just does not work and is unconstitutional. The sad fact is most Americans have little or no knowledge of what is in our Constitution or why the founding fathers created the Constitution the way they did, even though it is the supreme law of the land. By the way hunters, your rights to hunt with firearms are a fringe benefit of the Second Amendment and you might want to keep that in mind the next time you attack anyones rights to have certain kinds of firearms, because if we lose the Second Amendment you will also lose your hunting firearms. We are all in this together, so please do not tell us what we can have or do not need.Arthur R. Vinson Floral CityThanks from West Citrus Elks Thank you to the Citrus County community for supporting all of our fundraising events this year. Thanks also to the Citrus County Chroniclefor all of the invaluable publicity. Thanks to the members of the Elks for all of their help and support throughout this year. And, last but not least, thanks to all of the Ladies of the West Citrus Elks who work so tirelessly to raise money for charity. Through your hard work and dedication we were able to lend assistance to those in need. Thanks again for a successful year!Mary Waterfield Ladies of the West Citrus Elks HomosassaDemand ban on assault weaponsWhy has the bill banning the sale of assault weapons been stalled in the Senate? Its because our members in Congress are so influenced by the NRA, gun manufacturers, and gun dealers for their generous campaign donations. That money is dripping with blood. More than 100 million Americans want assault weapons sales banned to the general public and only available to the police and military. Have members in Congress no conscience, blood flowing through their veins, beating heart or soul? Call members in Congress to tell them to pass that bill banning assault weapons and insist on a background check of gun buyers prior to the actual sale. The switchboard number at the Capitol is 202-224-3121.

US blasts Egypt arrest warrantCAIRO The U.S. State Department said Monday that arrest warrants and the investigation of a popular Egyptian satirist and other critics of Egypts Islamist president highlight a disturbing trend of growing restrictions on freedom of expression in the country. The strongly worded statement by U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland Monday came a day after Bassem Youssef, who criticizes President Mohammed Morsi and hard-line clerics on his Jon Stewart-style show, was released on bail following an interrogation into accusations he insulted Morsi and Islam.Afghan teen kills US soldierKABUL, Afghanistan An Afghan teenager fatally stabbed an American soldier in the neck as he played with children in eastern Afghanistan, officials said Monday, as the U.S. death toll rose sharply last month with an uptick in fighting due to warmer weather. The soldier was playing with children outside when the attacker came from behind and stabbed him in the neck with a large knife, officials said.Hamas re-elects Mashaal as leaderCAIRO The Islamic militant group Hamas on Monday re-elected longtime leader Khaled Mashaal, officials said, choosing a relative pragmatist who has sparred with movement hardliners in the past over his attempt to reconcile with Western-backed Palestinian rivals. The secretive Hamas did not issue an announcement, but Mashaals re-election was confirmed by two Hamas officials. The vote late Monday capped a year of internal elections spread over several countries and shrouded in mystery.NKorean leaders meet amid tensionSEOUL, South Korea After weeks of war-like rhetoric, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gathered legislators Monday for an annual spring parliamentary session taking place one day after top party officials adopted a statement declaring building nuclear weapons and the economy the nations top priorities. The meeting of the Supreme Peoples Assembly follows near-daily threats from Pyongyang, including vows of nuclear strikes on South Korea and the U.S. Pyongyang has reacted with anger over routine U.S.-South Korean military drills and a new round of U.N. and U.S. sanctions that followed its Feb. 12 underground nuclear test, the countrys third. Analysts see a full-scale North Korean attack as unlikely and say the threats are more likely efforts to provoke softer policies toward Pyongyang from a new government in Seoul, to win diplomatic talks with Washington and to solidify the young North Korean leaders military credentials at home. Conn. lawmakers OK tough gun lawsHARTFORD, Conn. Connecticut lawmakers announced a deal Monday on what they called some of the toughest gun laws in the country that were proposed after the December mass shooting in the state, including a ban on new high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the massacre that left 20 children and six educators dead. The proposal also called for background checks for private gun sales and a new registry for existing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets.Stockton to enter bankruptcySACRAMENTO, Calif. The people of Stockton will feel financial fallout for years after a federal judge ruled Monday to let the city become the most populous in the nation to enter bankruptcy. But the case is also being watched closely because it could answer the significant question of who gets paid first by financially strapped cities retirement funds or creditors. In making his ruling, Klein disagreed with creditors who argued Stockton failed to pursue all avenues for straightening out its financial affairs.Delay seen in health lawWASHINGTON The Obama administration is proposing a one-year delay in a feature of the new health care law intended to give workers at small companies health plan choices similar to what employees of large businesses enjoy. Starting Jan. 1, small companies with up to 100 workers will be able to buy coverage through new health insurance marketplaces called exchanges. As originally envisioned, employees would have been the ones to pick their plans. But now, for the first year, the employer will choose for the entire company.Dogfight raid in MississippiJACKSON, Miss. A raid on a barn in northern Mississippi over the weekend busted up what is thought to be one the biggest annual dogfights in the United States with organizers and participants from around the country, authorities said Monday. A monthslong investigation involving numerous federal, state and local agencies culminated in the raid Saturday night where at least 200 people gathered in a barn at the end of a dirt road in Benton County, authorities said. Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson said the man believed to be the main organizer was arrested at the scene.

Irving, who was arrested last week in Maine, disappeared 34 years ago while awaiting sentencing in Massachusetts for three rapes. Caught Associated PressCENTENNIAL, Colo. For James Holmes, justice is death, prosecutors said Monday in announcing they will seek his execution if he is convicted in the Colorado movie theater attack that killed 12 people. The decision disclosed in court just days after prosecutors publicly rejected Holmes offer to plead guilty if they took the death penalty off the table elevated the already sensational case to a new level and could cause it to drag on for years. Its my determination and my intention that in this case, for James Eagan Holmes, justice is death, District Attorney George Brauchler said, adding that he had discussed the case with 60 people who lost relatives in the July 20 shooting rampage by a gunman in a gas mask and body armor during a midnight showing of the latest Batman movie. There was no audible reaction from the 25-year-old former neuroscience graduate student, who sat with his back to reporters, or from victims families in the courtroom. Holmes parents sat side by side in the gallery, clutching hands with fingers intertwined. The decision had been widely predicted by legal analysts. Within minutes of it becoming official, the trial was pushed back from August to next February and Judge William B. Sylvester removed himself from the case, saying now that the charges carry the death penalty they will take years to resolve and he does not have the time to devote to such a drawn-out matter. Despite the potential for more delays, some of those who lost loved ones were happy with prosecutors decision. I had a huge adrenaline rush, said Bryan Beard, whose best friend Alex Sullivan was killed in the attack. I love the choice. I love it, I love it. He added: I hope Im in the room when he dies. Justice is death Prosecutors to seek death penalty for Holmes in Colorado slayings James Holmes Associated PressBEIRUT March was the bloodiest month yet in Syrias 2-year-old conflict with more than 6,000 documented deaths, a leading antiregime activist group said Monday, blaming the increase on heavier shelling and more violent clashes. Rami Abdul-Rahman, who heads the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the increased toll is likely incomplete because both the Syrian army and the rebel groups fighting the government often underreport their dead in the civil war. Both sides are hiding information, Abdul-Rahman said by phone from Britain, where his group is based. It is very difficult to get correct info on the fighters because they dont want the information to hurt morale. The numbers, while provided by only one group, support the appraisal of the conflict offered by many Syria watchers: The civil war is largely a military stalemate that is destroying the countrys social fabric and taking a huge toll on civilians. The increase also reflects the continuing spread of major hostilities to new parts of Syria. While clashes continue in Aleppo, Damascus and Homs, Syrias three largest cities, rebels have launched an offensive in recent weeks to seize towns and army bases in the southern province of Daraa, largely with the help of an influx of foreign-funded weapons. The Observatory, which works through a network of contacts in Syria, said those killed in March included similar numbers of combatants on both sides: 1,486 rebels and army defectors and 1,464 soldiers from the Syrian army. But the number of civilians killed exceeded them both: 2,080 total for the month, including 298 children and 291 women. In addition, there were 387 unidentified civilians and 588 unidentified fighters, most of them foreigners fighting with the rebels, bringing the March total to 6,005, Abdul-Rahman said. He criticized the international community for not doing more to stop the bloodshed, which he said could increase. If there is no solution, we think the numbers will get worse in the coming months, he said. The March toll surpassed what had previously been the deadliest month, August 2012, when airstrikes, clashes and shelling killed more than 5,400 people, Abdul-Rahman said. His total death toll for the conflict through the end of March was 62,554, a number he acknowledged as incomplete, suggesting the true figure could be twice as high. Bloodiest month for Syria Associated PressIn this March 13 photo released by the Syrian official news agency SANA, Syrian doctors treat a man who was wounded at the scene where two mortar rounds exploded near an orphanage, at the al-Boukhtyar area in Damascus, Syria. More than 6,000 people were killed in the Syrian civil war in March alone, according to a leading activist group. Group claims more than 6,000 people killed in March Associated PressWASHINGTON Spending on U.S. construction projects rebounded in February, helped by a surge in home construction, which rose to the highest level in more than four years. Construction spending rose 1.2 percent overall in February compared to January, when construction had dropped 2.1 percent, the Commerce Department reported Monday. Spending rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $885.1 billion, which was 7.9 percent higher than a year ago. The advance was led by a 2.2 percent rise in private residential construction, which climbed to an annual rate of $303.4 billion, the best showing since November 2008. Private nonresidential construction was up 0.4 percent while public construction rose 0.9 percent. Construction spending is expected to keep growing this year, fueled by more homebuilding and broader improvement in the economy. For all of 2012, construction spending increased 9.8 percent, marking the first annual gain after five straight years of declines. Construction spending is still well below healthy levels. But it is slowly coming back, led by a recovery in housing that looks to be strengthening this year. Steady hiring and nearly record-low mortgage rates have encouraged more Americans to buy homes. More people are also moving out on their own after living with friends and relatives in the recession. Thats driving a big gain in apartment construction and also pushing up rents. In February, spending on single-family construction rose 4.3 percent, helping to offset a 2.2 percent drop in apartment construction. Residential activity is now 20.1 percent above where it was a year ago. Construction spending up in February BUILDUP: Spending on U .S. construction projects rose 1.2 percent in February, helped by a 2.2 percent surge in home construction, which rose to the highest level in more than four years. THE COMPONENTS: Pri vate residential construction climbed to an annual rate of $303.4 billion, the best showing since November 2008. Private nonresidential construction was up 0.4 percent while public construction rose 0.9 percent. THE OUTLOOK: Stead y hiring and nearly recordlow mortgage rates have encouraged more Americans to buy homes. More people are also moving out on their own after living with friends and relatives in the recession. Thats driving a big gain in apartment construction and also pushing up rents.

PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays placed designated hitter Luke Scott on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf and designated catchers Stephen Vogt and Robinson Chirinos for assignment in moves that helped the team set the opening day roster. The club also announced it purchased the contracts of right-handed reliever Jamey Wright and first baseman Shelley Duncan, who signed minor league deals this winter. Meanwhile, catcher Craig Albernaz was reassigned to the minors. The club purchased the contract of right-hander Juan Carlos Oviedo, who then was placed on the 60-day disabled list due to Tommy John surgery. Scott was placed on the DL, retroactive to March 24. Vogt and Chirinos were designated for assignment to clear spots on the 40-man roster for Wright and Duncan.Raiders acquire QB Flynn from SeattleALAMEDA, Calif. The Oakland Raiders have traded for Seattle backup quarterback Matt Flynn in the teams latest change at the games most important position. The deal announced by the Seahawks on Monday signals the end to Carson Palmers tenure in Oakland. Palmer is expected to be dealt to Arizona. Oakland will send a fifthround pick in 2014 and a conditional pick in 2015 to Seattle for Flynn, who left Green Bay and signed a lucrative free agent deal with Seattle last year. But he couldnt beat out rookie Russell Wilson for the starting job. The Raiders also will receive a late-round pick from Arizona if the deal for Palmer is completed. The Raiders traded for Palmer midway through the 2011 season.Former coach Jack Pardee dies at 76HOUSTON Jack Pardee, 76, one of Bear Bryants Junction Boys at Texas A&M who went on to become an All-Pro linebacker and an NFL coach, has died, University of Houston spokesman David Bassity said. Pardee was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1986. Pardee played three seasons at Texas A&M and was the 14th overall pick in the 1957 NFL draft by Los Angeles. He played for the Rams from 1957-64, sat out a year to deal with melanoma, and played seven more seasons. He was the Chicago Bears head coach from 1975-77. He coached the Redskins from 1978-80. He served as San Diegos defensive coordinator for one season, then returned to Texas to coach the USFLs Houston Gamblers. When the USFL disbanded in 1987, Pardee became the coach at the University of Houston. Pardee became the coach of the NFLs Houston Oilers in 1990, and led the team to the playoffs in each of his first four seasons.Texas Tech, Tubby Smith agree on dealTubby Smith is coming to Texas Tech to try to turn around another wayward program. A person with knowledge of the deal said Texas Tech agreed to terms Monday with Smith on a contract to be its next coach. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. Smith takes over for interim coach Chris Walker, who went 11-20 this season and 3-15 in Big 12 play. Smith was fired by Minnesota last week after six seasons. He led them to three NCAA tournaments and this year delivered the programs first tourney win over sixth-seeded UCLA since 1997.From wire reports McDermott repeats on AP hoops team Associated PressDoug McDermott made Creighton history last season when he was selected as the schools first player on the AP All-America team. Now hes done it again. The 6-foot-8 junior forward, the second-leading scorer in Division I, was a repeat selection Monday, the 51st player to earn the honor in consecutive seasons. Its pretty crazy. I couldnt expect to have as good a year as I did, said McDermott, who averaged 23.1 points and 7.5 rebounds while shooting 56.1 percent from the field and 49.7 percent from 3-point range. Trey Burke of Michigan and Otto Porter Jr. of Georgetown tied as the leading votegetters for first team, while Victor Oladipo of Indiana and Kelly Olynyk of Gonzaga were the other players selected. McDermott, who led the Bluejays to the Missouri Valley Conference championship with a title-game win over Wichita State, wasnt shocked that he was the second repeat selection in as many years, following Jared Sullinger of Ohio State. But the honor was satisfying. Its not too surprising because I approach the game the same every time, he said. I knew I could kick it into gear and have a special season. Its tough to do what I did with the defenses I faced. I got a lot more attention. I found ways to expand my game. I was really pleased. So was his coach, and father. Im just really proud of the season that he was able to put together, Greg McDermott said. On one hand he was able to consistently put up incredible numbers on a team that won a lot of games. At the end of the day I know that was most important to Doug. Burke and Porter both received 62 firstteam votes and 319 points from the same Doug McDermott See AP HOOPS/ Page B3 Strong first day for girls netters Associated PressNEW YORK Jackie Bradley Jr. and the Red Sox were daring on the basepaths. Jon Lester and the Boston bullpen were aggressive against a barely recognizable New York Yankees lineup. The Red Sox looked as if they were in a hurry to put a dreadful 2012 season behind them. Theyre off to an impressive start, giving new manager John Farrell an 8-2 win on opening day Monday. I think how you saw it (Monday) is how we can win a lot of ballgames, new designated hitter Jonny Gomes said. It was kind of all there early. Shane Victorino led a revamped Red Sox lineup with three RBIs and Bradley walked three times and scored twice in his big league debut. Bostons big day against CC Sabathia (01) came a year after it lost its first three games under Bobby Valentine and went on to a 69-93 finish. Facing a Yankees lineup minus injured Derek Jeter for the first time since 2001 and just three starters from opening day a year ago, Lester (1-0) gave up five hits and two runs in five sharp innings against the defending AL East champions. Its big, Lester said. Its obviously a lot nicer than the past couple of years to be on top 1-0 instead of going through a whole road trip without a win again. Yankees stars Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira also are on the disabled list. Youre talking about some of the best players in the game. Its going to be a little different, Sabathia said. But we know what we have to do and whos not here. Thats not an excuse. Bradley, meanwhile, made an immediate impact after earning a spot with a strong spring training performance. In his first plate appearance, the ever-smiling 22-year-old outfielder worked a one-out walk after falling behind 0-2. That helped Boston touch up the big lefty for four runs in the second inning and start the angry rumblings of 49,514 anxious Yankees fans. Young No. 44 then stole a potential RBI hit from Robinson Cano with a running, twisting grab in a swirling wind in left field in the third. Bradley added an RBI groundout in the seventh. All in a days work for the unflappable rookie. I wasnt nervous. I was ready, Bradley said. Just trying to do whatever I can to help the team win. The punchless Yankees had just one hit after the fifth inning against five relievers in losing a season opener at home for the first time since 1982, after 11 straight wins. Adding to the tough day all around for New York, rain in the ninth inning sent fans Associated PressNew York Yankee Kevin Youkilis reacts after striking out Monday and stranding two runners in the seventh inning against his former team, the Boston Red Sox, at Yankee Stadium in New York.

After Mondays matches at the Jonesville Tennis Center, deep and experienced Ocala Forest leads with 11 points. And with players competing in all but one of the singles finals, in addition to having both doubles teams still alive, the Wildcats would have to collapse to miss out on the district championship. CHS and LHS each have eight points, three more than Ocala Vanguard, entering todays play with the Hurricanes sending out finalists at No. 1 (Melanie Dodd), No. 4 (Juliann Johnson) and No. 5 singles (Leah Stanley), as well as semifinalists at No. 2 doubles (Johnson/HunterPospiech). The Panthers will counter with a finalist at No. 2 (Madison Gamble) and No. 3 singles (Simi Shah) in addition to semifinalists at No. 1 doubles (Madison and Amber Gamble) and No. 2 doubles (Shah/Megan Jervis). Knowing the top two district finishers advance, Citrus coach Scott Waters said he was pleased with where his team sits. Im pleasantly surprised, Waters said. We have a young group. I figured wed hold our own this year, but the girls keep getting better and better. Theyve exceeded expectations. Waters pointed to Stanley, who just began playing tennis a year ago, and Johnson, who opened the season 2-3 but enters her final against Forests Kinley Rogers on a nine-match winning streak, as examples. And then he talked about Dodd, who appeared to be very comfortable on Jonesvilles clay courts in victories against Amber Gamble (6-0, 6-1) and Gainesvilles Hanna Helmerson (6-3, 6-1). Shes the story of the year, Waters said. She hasnt lost an organized school match ever. She was undefeated in both years of middle school and all three years of high school so far. Shes just a junior, and she continues to work to improve her game. Shes so consistent and every shot she hits is with a plan. She moves her opponents all around purposely and shes added a drop shot this year, making her even more effective. Lecanto and Citrus didnt fair quite as well on the boys side. There, powerful Gainesville (10 points) and Forest (nine) are comfortably ahead of LHS and Vanguard (six points each). CHS concluded the afternoon with See TENNIS/ Page B3

Associated PressWASHINGTON Bryce Harper homered in his first two atbats, Stephen Strasburg retired 19 batters in a row at one stretch, and the defending NL East champion Washington Nationals opened the season with a 2-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Monday. For Strasburg (1-0), this marked the start of what should be his first full season in the majors, with zero pitch or inning limits. The All-Star ace was dominant against a tradedepleted Marlins lineup that features Giancarlo Stanton and little else. The right-hander went seven innings, matching his career high, and allowed three hits. Reigning NL Rookie of the Year Harper, a 20-year-old outfielder, hit solo shots over the out-of-town scoreboard in right-center field off Ricky Nolasco (0-1) in the first and fourth innings. New closer Rafael Soriano got the save.NATIONAL LEAGUE Braves 7, Phillies 5ATLANTA Freddie Freeman drove in three runs with three hits, including the first of three Atlanta home runs, and the Braves beat Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia Phillies 7-5. Dan Uggla and Justin Upton, making his Braves debut, also homered for Atlanta, which led National League teams with 49 in spring training. Hamels (0-1) struggled in his first opening day start. He gave up five runs on seven hits, including the three homers, with five strikeouts and one walk in five innings. Mets 11, Padres 2NEW YORK Jonathon Niese stepped nicely into his new role as No. 1 starter for the Mets, and Collin Cowgill capped a successful New York debut with a grand slam in an 11-2 rout of the San Diego Padres. Marlon Byrd had a pair of RBI singles and fellow Mets newcomer John Buck was in the middle of three rallies as New York improved baseballs best opening day record to 34-18 despite dropping its first eight openers.Cubs 3, Pirates 1PITTSBURGH Jeff Samardzija struck out nine in eight nearly flawless innings and the Chicago Cubs held on for a 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The right-hander allowed just two hits and walked one as Chicago won on opening day for the first time since 2009. Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run homer for the Cubs. A.J. Burnett gave up three runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings, striking out 10.Brewers 5, Rockies 4, 10 inn.MILWAUKEE Jonathan Lucroy hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 5-4 victory over Colorado, ruining the first game for new Rockies manager Walt Weiss. Rickie Weeks sparked the winning rally when he stole second after he was hit by a pitch with one out. Adam Ottavino (0-1) then issued an intentional walk to Ryan Braun and lost Aramis Ramirez to another walk before Lucroy ended the game with a fly ball to center field.Dodgers 4, Giants 0LOS ANGELES Clayton Kershaw launched his first career home run to break a scoreless tie in the eighth inning, then finished off a four-hitter that led the Los Angeles Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants 4-0. Kershaw struck out seven, walked none and retired World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval on a grounder to end it. Kershaw became the first pitcher in the majors to homer on opening day since Joe Magrane of St. Louis in 1988, and the first Dodgers pitcher to do it since Don Drysdale in 1965.AMERICAN LEAGUE White Sox 1, Royals 0CHICAGO Chris Sale outpitched James Shields, Tyler Flowers homered and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 1-0. A dominant performance by Sale and Flowers drive leading off the fifth against Shields were just enough. It also gave the White Sox a rare win over the Royals, who took 12 of 18 from them a year ago.Tigers 4, Twins 2MINNEAPOLIS Justin Verlanders five shutout innings at frosty Target Field held up for Detroit, and the defending American League champion Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2. With the gametime temperature at 35 degrees and the wind blowing at 17 mph, fans had to bundle up. But opening day is always a draw, as evidenced by the announced crowd of 38,282, a sellout by Twins guidelines. Prince Fielder had two hits and an RBI to help spoil Vance Worleys first start for the Twins, who left 12 runners on, including the bases loaded in the seventh.INTERLEAGUE PLAY Angels 3, Reds 1, 13 inn.CINCINNATI Chris Iannetta hit a solo homer and a bases-loaded single in the 13th inning, powering the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in the majors first interleague season opener. Ernesto Frieri, the Angels seventh pitcher, finished off the Reds longest opening game since 1975, when they beat the Dodgers 2-1 in 14 innings. BASEBALL CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEB2TUESDAY, APRIL2, 2013 Associated PressWashington Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper hits a solo home run Monday in the first inning of the opening day game against the Miami Marlins in Washington.

PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles embrace heightened expectations that accompany success within the rugged AL East, which again figures to be one of the most balanced divisions in baseball. The teams begin the season today at Tropicana Field, each brimming with confidence and eager to set the tone for achieving a goal of playing deep into October. We feel we have a group that is capable of getting to the playoffs, playing the last game of the year and winning it, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria said. You should never run away from expectations, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon echoed. We dont believe its hyperbole. We really think it can be done. So do the Orioles, who stopped a string of 14 consecutive losing seasons by winning 93 games and beating Texas in the AL wildcard game last fall. One of the challenges this year is to prove their run, which ended with a loss to the AL East champion Yankees in Game 5 of the divisional series, wasnt a fluke. We went through a heck of journey together last year. Weve got a lot of people that know what the journey is about, and know whats expected, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. It seems like an eternity since we started spring training, Showalter added. But it doesnt seem like an eternity since we finished in New York last year. I think thats good. AL Cy Young Award winner David Price (20-5, 2.56 ERA in 2012) will make his second career opening day start for the pitching-rich Rays, who have the third-best regular season record in baseball over the past five years behind the Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies. The Orioles will counter with Jason Hammel (8-6, 3.43), who welcomes the opportunity to help Baltimore get off on the right foot. A strong April could be one of the keys to getting back to the postseason. Everybody knows the division is going to be tough the whole year, so you want to get off to a good start. ... The Rays are a good team with a good staff, and I hope we can grind out some wins, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said. Its more important to get off to a good start in general just to build yourself some momentum, center fielder Adam Jones said. The schedule is not going to change. Were going to play our division a lot and Im sure in September, were going to be heavy-loaded with playing them again, he said. Weve all got to play the same schedule. Its just a matter of whos going to come out on top. Despite playing a significant portion of 2012 without Longoria, a three-time All-Star who was sidelined three months with a partially torn left hamstring, the Rays won at least 90 games for the fourth time in five years and finished third in the division behind the Yankees and Orioles. But after making a surprising run to the World Series in 2008 and returning to the playoffs twice over the next four years, anything short of playing deep into October is a bitter disappointment in Tampa Bay. Maddon expects a solid pitching staff led by Price and closer Fernando Rodney to again fuel a strong bid for the division title. He also believes the offense and defense could be more efficient with the addition of infielders James Loney, Kelly Johnson and Yunel Escobar. Our goal is not to be watching everybody else play at the end of the year, Maddon said. Thats our mindset. We never count ourselves out. We continue to plug on, Price added. Nobody really envisions us being there at the end of the year, but we all do. We dont care about how much guys are getting paid, who were playing. ... We have one common goal get to the last game of the season and win it. Associated PressTampa Bays Evan Longoria bats March 28 during a spring training game against the Baltimore Orioles in Sarasota. A healthy Longoria will be one key for the Rays to make a deep October run this season.

The loss was just the third of the season for Libby, who owned two regular-season wins against the Lecanto captain, who played to the crowd with fist pumps after numerous big points. Rishi is a really good player, Forest coach David Falcone said. Hes really fast and quick to start and stop, so the clay surface is more suitable to him. Phillip also got tired, while Rishi stayed fresher. He was hitting good shots throughout the match and deserved the win. In addition to Gurnani, No. 2 singles player Sam Alford and both LHS doubles teams (Gurnani/Alford and Lloyd Justo/Dale Eastmond), as well as the Hurricanes No. 1 doubles team (Kyle Everett/Grey Pospiech) will be in action today. Play will begin at 9 a.m. with the singles finals. Doubles semifinals and finals will follow. running for cover while the Red Sox scored three times against a mustachioed Joba Chamberlain. Jacoby Ellsbury had a sharp two-run infield single that first baseman Lyle Overbay, picked up off waivers only a week ago, couldnt handle for his third hit. Victorino singled home Bradley to add to the romp. We want to put pressure on the opposition, Farrell said. And thats not strictly with attempted steals and how we look to run the bases first to third, but the attitude and how we go about our work. No matter the colorful history between the clubs, the reality in 2013 is this: The two teams that have dominated the division for more than a decade enter opening day with considerably less swagger. Heck, the Yankees played as if they were still trying to get to know each other and they were, with several March acquisitions. The Bleacher Creatures roll call was loaded with new names because of injuries and the departures of free agents Nick Swisher and Russell Martin. We brought some guys in later into camp, manager Joe Girardi said. Theyre going to get a lot of opportunities here, and were going to need them to perform. 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Voting was on a 5-3-1 basis and was completed before the NCAA tournament. Oladipo got 58 first-team votes and 306 points. McDermott had 44 firstteam votes and 279 points, one more than Olynyks total points. The Gonzaga junior got 47 first-team votes. Burke, a 6-0 sophomore point guard, had an impressive individual season while running a team that at times had four freshmen on the court with him. Burke averaged 19.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 6.7 assists and shot 40.1 percent on 3-point attempts. He is Michigans fifth All-America and first since Chris Webber in 1993. Every now and then you think about individual accolades, and that was definitely a goal of mine coming into my freshman year, Burke said. I didnt know it would be this quick, but it happens. Porter, a 6-8 sophomore, is a smooth, solid forward whose coach describes his efforts this way: Otto was Otto. What does show up on Porters stat line is 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while shooting 42.7 percent from behind the 3-point line. He is Georgetowns sixth All-America and first since Allen Iverson in 1996. Oladipo is Indianas first All-America since A.J. Guyton in 2000 and the eighth overall. He was impressed to be joining the likes of Scott May, Kent Benson, Isiah Thomas, Steve Alford and Calbert Cheaney. Im kind of speechless to be with the great names in college basketball, the NBA, in basketball history, Oladipo, a 6-5 junior swingman, said. To be put in a sentence with them only makes me want to work harder. That is one of the traits Hoosiers coach Tom Crean loves about Oladipo, who averaged 13.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.2 steals while shooting 59.9 percent from the field and 44.3 percent on 3s. Olynyk, a native of Canada, became an All-America with a junior season that saw the Bulldogs reach No. 1 for the first time in school history. The 7footer averaged 17.5 points and 7.2 rebounds while shooting 65.2 percent from the field. Olynyk joins Dan Dickau and Adam Morrison as Gonzaga All-Americas. Freshman guard Marcus Smart of Oklahoma State got 11 first-team votes and 190 points and was joined on the second team by senior Mason Plumlee of Duke, sophomores Cody Zeller of Indiana and Shane Larkin of Miami and freshman Ben McLemore of Kansas. The third team was seniors Jeff Withey of Kansas, Erick Green of Virginia Tech and Nate Wolters of South Dakota State and juniors DeShaun Thomas of Ohio State and Russ Smith of Louisville.

Mike Conley drove for a layup with 0.6 seconds left, and the Memphis Grizzlies rallied to beat the San Antonio Spurs 92-90 for their third straight victory.

Kemba Walker scored 27 points to lead the Bobcats, and Gerald Henderson had 17. Louisville the sure thing in a hoops season of parity Cards lone top seed to reach Final Four Associated PressThe word of the season: Parity. The team of the moment: Louisville. For a college basketball season in which it seemed anybody could beat anybody, and the No. 1 ranking was never secure, Rick Pitinos Cardinals (33-5) have certainly cemented themselves as a prohibitive front-runner now that there are only four teams left. They head to Atlanta listed as 3-5 favorites in Las Vegas, after dispatching everyone from Duke to North Carolina A&T with equal ease on their way to the Final Four. Trying to stop them will be Michigan, Syracuse and Wichita State a pair of No. 4 seeds and a No. 9, all serving as great examples of how difficult it was to sort out the contenders from the pretenders heading into the 2013 version of March Madness. Cinderella found one glass skipper, said Gregg Marshall, coach of Wichita State, which beat No. 1seeded Gonzaga and No. 2 Ohio State on its way to adding some mid-major mojo to the Final Four. We won four games. I dont think she found four glass slippers. When you get to this point, youre good enough to win it all. Pitino said he does, in fact, believe in parity during this, a season in which the team at the top of The Associated Press poll changed five times in five straight weeks at one point. He called the Midwest Region, where the Cardinals were seeded first and won their games by an average of nearly 22 points, the death bracket. Ive experienced quite a few NCAAs, said Pitino, who is coaching his seventh Final Four team. Ive never played the likes of a Colorado State in the second round. Theyre a team that was very much capable of getting to a Final Four. Then Oregon was just absolutely terrific. Then certainly Coach K and Duke ... To play Duke in an Elite Eight, never mind a Final Four, it was a death bracket. The Michigan-Syracuse semifinal features two power-conference teams that finished in the upper half of their leagues, but stayed under the radar through conference tournament time. The Orangemen (30-9) headed into the postseason losing four of five and coach Jim Boeheim was talking more about playing golf than coaching in April. Sparked by Boeheims vaunted 2-3 zone defense, theyve won seven of eight and are back in the Final Four for the first time since Carmelo Anthony brought the championship home in 2003. Its difficult when you lose four out of five games, Boeheim said. But people go through that. I think most teams have a bad stretch sometime during the course of the year, particularly if you play four games against three teams in the top 15 in the country. Michigans lull came in early February, when it lost three of four shortly after reaching No. 1 in the AP poll for the first time since 1992 the days of the Fab Five. Its current four-game winning streak is the first of more than two games since early in the Big Ten season. So, while the No. 4 seed may make sense for the Wolverines (30-7), it may not account for the difference maker they have in AllAmerican Trey Burke. Burke has averaged 18.6 points in the last three games of the tournament. Coach John Beileins job will be to find ways to get shots for Burke against Boeheims zone. Hes had an ability, particularly with our teams, to really make sure some of our best shooters dont get open shots, dont get their traditional shots, Beilein said. So thats our job, to try to figure that out, to make sure we can get clean looks. While the Michigan-Syracuse game is considered a near toss-up Michigans a 2-point favorite Louisville is favored by 10 1/2 over Wichita State in the first semifinal. Its the second-largest spread for a Final Four since 1985, the year the field expanded to 64 teams.

The Red Wings, coming off a 7-1 loss to Chicago, allowed a 3-0 lead to turn into a one-goal game. Colorado avoided a shutout with a power-play goal at 14:08 of the third period when Jamie McGinns backhander from between the circles sailed over a sprawling Howard. Avalanche forward Cody McLeod checked Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith into Howard, who couldnt get off the ice in time to get in a position to stop McGinns shot.Canadiens 4, Hurricanes 1MONTREAL Carey Price made 18 saves in his 300th NHL game to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Selling health care Marketing studies help craft health overhaul pitchRICARDOALONSOZALDIVAR Associated PressWASHINGTONHow do you convince millions of average Americans that one of the most complex and controversial programs devised by government may actually be a good deal for them? With the nation still split over President Barack Obamas health care law, the administration has turned to the science of mass marketing for help in understanding the lives of uninsured people, hoping to craft winning pitches for a surprisingly varied group in society. The laws supporters will have to make the sale in the run-up to an election the 2014 midterms. Already Republicans are hoping for an Obamacare flop that helps them gain control of the Senate, while Democrats are eager for the public to finally embrace the Affordable Care Act, bringing political deliverance. It turns out Americas more than 48 million uninsured people are no monolithic mass. A marketing analysis posted online by the federal Health and Human Services Department reveals six distinct groups, three of which appear critical to the success or failure of the program. Theyre the Healthy & Young, comprising 48 percent of the uninsured, the Sick, Active & Worried, (29 percent of the uninsured), and the Passive & Unengaged (15 percent). The Healthy & Young take good health for granted, are tech-savvy, and have low motivation to enroll. The Sick, Active & Worried are mostly Generation X and baby boomers, active seekers of health care information and worried about costs. The Passive & Unengaged group is mostly 49 and older, lives for today, and doesnt understand much about health insurance. The challenge for the administration is obvious: signing up lots of the Healthy & Young, as well as the Passive & Unengaged, to offset the higher costs of covering the sick and worried. Uninsured middleclass Americans will be able to sign up for subsidized private health plans through new insurance markets in their states starting Oct.1. Low-income uninsured people will be steered to safety net programs like Medicaid. The goal here is to get as many people enrolled as possible, Gary Cohen, the HHS official overseeing the rollout of the law, told insurers at a recent industry conference. Partly for that reason the first open enrollment period will continue until March 31, 2014. Coverage under the law takes effect Jan. 1. Thats also when the legal requirement that most Americans carry health insurance goes into force. Insurance companies will be barred from turning the sick away or charging them more. The new law is mainly geared to the uninsured and to people who buy coverage directly from insurance companies. Most Americans in employer plans are not expected to see major changes. Administration officials say they see an opportunity to change the national debate about health care. They want to get away from shouting matches about the role of government and start millions of practical conversations about new benefits that can help families and individuals. The HHS marketing materials reveal some barriers to getting the uninsured to embrace the law. For several years, a great deal of debate has surrounded the usefulness of cancer screening, including breast, prostate and lung cancer. Statisticians try to look at the benefits of early detection and a higher chance of cure, and weigh it against the cost. Whether this is the approach we may soon have to take or not, the benefits of screening have been proven over and over again. Now, however, there is a question of how often screening tests should be Bruising is a common condition that has affected us all at some point in our lives. Trauma such as household injuries and surgical procedures are the most common causes in younger patients. Sometimes medications, vitamins and supplements, which I will expand on later, are another cause. The next group of causes includes blood disorders, thyroid and metabolic problems, autoimmune disorders (a situation where the immune system malfunctions), cancers and lastly malnutrition, which is very rare in the United States. It can be seen in low economic groups and elderly and institutionalized patients. The term medical professionals use for bruising that occurs in the older patient population is called senile purpura. There are a number of causes, including skin thickness, which declines with age in both male and female patients. The skin becomes very fragile because it loses collagen, which gives it strength; elastin, which gives it ability to stretch; and fat underneath the skin, or subcutaneous fat, which provides protection much like the Styrofoam peanuts that come in a package to protect the contents. Photo damage from the sun combined with aging changes Good morning! There have been a few comic laugh out loud moments lambasting Punxsutawney Phil, the Pennsylvania ground hog, and his prediction of an early spring. Face it, meteorologists dont always get it right either, but it will warm up, I promise! This is Florida, and soon we will be complaining its too hot. With warmer weather on the horizon, its time to talk about water safety. My first topics are children and life jackets. Young children, and anyone who cannot swim or tread water, should wear life jackets, when they are on a boat and any time they are around any body of water; period. Wearing a life jacket is important, but wearing one that is properly fitted is the key for safety. Team members of Nature Coast EMS have seen far too often fatal accidents involving children. Keep them constantly in your sight, period. Take the positive approach and be prepared. Talk to your children about not playing around One of the common questions patients ask me is, What kind of food should I eat or not eat? Or what kind of food helps my condition? I will address two specific studies answering part of the question in todays and next weeks article.

The Healthy & Young lead busy lives and tend to be procrastinators. Plus, why would they need health insurance if theyre full of vigor? The Passive & Unengaged fear the unknown and have difficulty navigating the health care system. The Sick, Active & Worried dread making wrong decisions. Marketing for the new system will start this summer, going into high gear during the fall after premiums and other plan information becomes public. Theres already widespread concern that the new coverage costs too much, because of a combination of sicker people joining the pool and federal requirements that insurers offer more robust benefits. A recent study by the Society of Actuaries forecast sticker shock, estimating that insurers will have to pay an average of 32 percent more for medical claims on individual health policies. The administration says such studies are misleading because they dont take into account parts of the law that offset costs to individuals and insurance companies, along with other provisions that promote competition and increase oversight of insurance rates. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., who has long supported coverage for the uninsured, is predicting vindication for Obama once people see how the program really works. Its harder to sell what is a pretty new idea for Americans while it is still in the abstract, said Schakowsky, who represents Chicago. I think as people experience it, theyre going to love it, much like Medicare. That will put wind in the sails of Democratic candidates. I think its going to be a very popular feature as far as the American way of life before too long, Schakowsky added. But Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says Democrats have been predicting for years that Americans would learn to love the health care overhaul and that has not happened. McConnell had his picture taken next to a 7foot stack of Obamacare regulations recently to underscore his disdain. can accelerate this process. There are times patients develop spontaneous bruising, or the trauma they sustained is so minor it makes one think there is something abnormal going on when, in reality, this is a relatively normal phenomenon with age. Besides normal aging changes and sun damage, the third most common things I encounter in my practice are substances patients are taking that can cause bruising. We all know there are blood thinners prescribed by doctors for various medical conditions, but there are also over-thecounter preparations and herbal supplements and vitamins that can create problems as well. Medications: 1. Aspirin. 2. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories. 3. Vitamin E. Herbs and natural supplements: 1. Clover. 2. Da Huang. 3. Danshen. 4. Dong Quai. 5. Evening primrose oil. 6. Fever few. 7. Garlic. 8. Ginger. 9. Ginkgo Biloba. 10. Ginseng. 11. Horse chestnut. 12. Licorice. 13. Poplar. 14. St. Johns Wort. The above list cites a few examples. See online sources or your doctor for a more extensive list of medications that can cause problems. As we age, we are going to have an increase in bruising. Fortunately, it doesnt propose a great deal of problems and doesnt necessarily suggest we have any health issues that require intervention. Home and folk remedies for swelling and bruising are well known and there is a long list of items that may help. Following is a short list of items that have been proven through research to enhance wound healing and decrease bruising and inflammation. 1. Arnica Montana used nowadays widely by plastic surgeons to avoid postoperative swelling and bruising. 2. Vitamin C, which has been known to help collagen production and help stem the increased thinning of the skin. 3. Zinc. Its role in reducing bruising is by decreasing inflammation as sociated with injury that occurs to the skin. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

GRILLOContinued from Page C1 SELLINGContinued from Page C1 We have been celebrating Africa Universitys 20th anniversary of its founding for the past week. Forty students were admitted that first year. The years since have been ones of remarkable growth, with the establishment of six different faculties plus the Institute of Peace, Leadership and Governance. Two men who were instrumental in the birth and development of AU were honored recently with honorary degrees. For students from millions of African families who subsist on less than $1 a day, education has been viewed as the ticket to success, and that is still true today. Three years ago, a poor farmer from a nearby village sought help for his son who wanted to become a teacher. The son subsequently received a scholarship and he is doing well at Africa University. He is positioned to graduate with honors next year. Although a few students come to AU with no financial problems, hundreds of AU students and their families struggle financially for this chance to get higher education. The struggle begins long before they reach the university level. Walter is a student at Hartzell High School across the valley. I met him last year when I was walking across campus. He was walking toward his village a few kilometers down the road, but our paths converged for a little ways. and I asked him a few questions. He was clearly a bright student. After that first happenstance meeting, we greeted each other when our paths occasionally crossed. Three weeks ago, he popped into my office on his way home. He needed a workbook for his geometry homework, but his mother didnt have the $5 it cost. I questioned him closely, because I get many requests for help. His need was authentic. He has three younger siblings, and an absentee father. With a meager corn crop, its difficult for his mother to even feed and clothe the family. I gave him the $5 he needed for the workbook. A few days ago, he came by my office again to show me his work. His geometry drawings in his new workbook were precise and neat, but he now needed a pencil kit with an angle ruler and an eraser for an upcoming examination. He had been borrowing kits from other kids to do his assignments, but couldnt do that for his exam. When I asked about his family, he said that his mother had gone to Mozambique 10 days earlier because her sister was in the hospital critically ill with malaria. The mother left Walter in charge. He was cooking for the family as well as seeing to it everyone got to school on time. (Classes start at 7 a.m., and it takes them about an hour to walk to school, so an early start is required.) He also needed to carry their remaining bag of dried corn to the village grinding mill a kilometer down the road. Then he would have the cornmeal he needed to cook their meals the next day. He was clearly proud of taking care of his family, but I got the full picture only after questioning him closely about his situation. I gave him the $5 he needed. Walter has dreams. His eyes light up when I ask about his hopes for the future. He wants a good higher education, and he eventually wants to work in the area of applied physics. I believe Walter has what it takes to achieve his goals. Ed Dodge, M.D., MPH, is a retired physician now living in Texas. Visit his website, www.thepoweroflifestyle.com.

A: This a very timely question, as April has been designated Parkinsons disease (PD) awareness month. James Parkinson, who was born in the month of April, was the English physician who first clinically defined this condition in 1817 and called it the Shaking Palsy. Since then, neurologists have classified PD as a movement disorder, characterized by four key movement (motor) symptoms that include the shaking (tremor) described by Dr. Parkinson in addition to muscle rigidity and stiffness, slowness of movement (bradykinesia) and impaired balance and coordination (postural instability). In the 1960s, it was discovered that these motor symptoms were caused by the death and malfunction of nerve cells in a section of the brain that produces a chemical called dopamine.This chemical sends messages that control movement and coordination. However, more recently it has been determined that many other parts of the brain and nervous system are affected by this chronic and progressively disabling disorder. Today, PD is considered much more than just a movement disorder. Non-motor symptoms of this disease may include pain, dementia or confusion, fatigue, sleep disturbances, depression, constipation, cognitive changes, fear and anxiety, and urinary problems. Like many other neurological disorders, the cause(s) of PD are not known, but both environment and genetic factors are thought to be involved. There currently is no cure for PD, but numerous medications and other treatment options, including surgery, are available to improve symptoms and the quality of life for people with this disease. While the average age of onset for PD is 60 years, many individuals are diagnosed in their 50s and 40s, or even younger. It is estimated nearly 1.5 million Americans are living with PD and some 60,000 Americans are newly diagnosed each year. There are several national organizations that can provide you with more information, one of which is the Parkinsons Disease Foundation. You can go to their website at www.pdf.org or call them at 800-457-6676.Richard P. Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years. Send questions to him at 2960 E.

study, who came from the Life After Cancer Epidemiology study, were diagnosed with early stage invasive breast cancer from 1997 to 2000. They completed the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Food Frequency Questionnaire after diagnosis. During a median follow-up of 11.8 years, 349 women had a recurrence and 372 died 189 from breast cancer. The authors evaluated the association between subsequent outcomes and categories of cumulative average dairy fat intake at baseline and at 5to 6-year follow-up. High-fat dairy intake was positively associated with outcome. Breast cancer and all cause mortality was higher in women who consumed half to 1 serving of high-fat dairy per day than in those who consumed less than half a serving. Dietary fat in dairy is a source of estrogenic hormones and estrogen feeds breast cancer. The biggest caveat to the study is that it relied on questionnaires. People generally tend to under-report how much they really eat, so its possible the study underestimated the effect of eating a lot of high-fat dairy. In absolute terms, breast cancer survivors who consumed the most high-fat dairy had about a 12 percent risk of dying of the disease. This is a modest increase in cancer deaths. The solution is simple, though: stay away from butter and ice cream as far as possible. This does not mean you cannot eat them at all, but avoid them. Women with breast cancer who are concerned about high-fat dairy have dietary alternatives. Consuming plantbased milks or nonfat dairy products may be a reasonable approach for limiting risk of adverse outcomes. In other words, breast cancer patients and survivors should consume rice, soy or nonfat milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, butter and other products. Also, remember, this applies to women who already had breast cancer. It does not apply to women who never had breast cancer. There is no evidence high-fat dairy causes breast cancer in a woman who never had breast cancer before.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

New data suggest that women 50 to 74 years old can safely undergo mammography every two years instead of annually, while women 40 to 49 years old should only undergo annual mammography if they have extremely dense breasts. This study was recently reported online in JAMA Internal Medicine. Researchers from the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center in California analyzed data on the benefits and harms of various mammography frequencies from 11,474 women with breast cancer, and 922,624 women without breast cancer. Yes, a very large study of almost one million women. The researchers found there was no increase in the risk of large or advanced stage tumors for women 50 to 74 years old with biennial versus annual screening, regardless of breast density or use of postmenopausal hormonal therapy. However, for women 40 to 49 years old with extremely dense breasts, there was a higher risk of advanced stage cancer and large tumors with biennial versus annual screening. This strongly supports the continued practice of annual mammograms in younger women and, in my opinion, continue the annual screening in all women at least until the age of 75. According to the researchers, women age 50 to 74 years, regardless of breast density or hormone therapy use can undergo biennial rather than annual mammography because biennial screening does not increase the risk of presenting with advanced disease. On the other hand, women age 40 to 49 years with extremely dense breasts who choose to undergo mammography should consider annual screening to decrease the risk of advancedstage disease. While this is good news, I will continue to advocate the use of annual screening for all women between the ages of 40 and 75. The risks associated with yearly screening are very low, and the benefit of finding a cancer early cannot be measured in terms of dollars and cents.Dr. C.

HEALTH& LIFE CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEC4TUESDAY, APRIL2, 2013 Fake-looking dentures a perennial concern Ihave had a number of questions regarding dentures and what can be done with them in order to enhance ones appearance. Instead of rewriting what I have done in the past, I chose to republish an old column. Here it is and I hope it helps clear up some of the questions out there. Some of what you will read is new technology, but the majority of it simply has to do with paying attention to the details, listening to your patient and taking your time, because each step counts. You might remember me saying that most of what we do in dentistry has many steps. If you are not on task for each step things will simply not turn out for the best. Q: My sister, who is only 55, recently had her teeth out and dentures made due to lots of bone loss. Aside from the fact that she can hardly wear them they look very fake just like dentures! I seem to remember you writing about ways that a denture can be made to look like real teeth. Can you review this in your next column? My sister is very frustrated and embarrassed to write in. A: This is a great question, one I see many patients for. You would be surprised how many people are self-conscious about their dentures and never do anything about it. Once they make the decision to do something they always wish they had done it sooner. Your sister will thank you for this. I originally wanted to write the one thing that makes a denture look like a denture is ..., but I couldnt, because there are a lot of things that need to be done to make a denture not look like a denture. Lets talk about some of them. A. Lip support: The placement of the upper lip is very important. The lip is supported by the denture flange and the teeth. The dentist has the ability to place this where he or she wants. The lip should be placed so that, when lipstick is placed on the lips, it is on the lips and not on the tissue above the lips. B. Tooth length: The length of the teeth is crucial. If the teeth are too short, you will not see any teeth while your lips are at rest. If the teeth are too long, you will see too much tooth while at rest and a lot of gums when you smile. The ideal scenario is to see a small amount of tooth while your lips are at rest. C. Tooth shape: The shape of the tooth can be very important. A square tooth is normally masculine and a curved tooth is typically feminine. The shape of the teeth should be selected on an individual basis. If the teeth are not selected specifically for the patient, you will get that typical denture look. D. Tooth color: The lighter the color of the teeth, the more youthful your smile will be. The dentist should take into consideration the patients complexion and whether or not lipstick is worn. Additionally, you need to know what shade of lipstick is typically worn. The darker the color of the lipstick, the lighter the teeth will look and vice-versa. E. Tooth position: The most obvious thing noticed by the lay person is the midline. If the midline of the teeth does not correspond with the midline of the face, the smile will not look right. The lay person may not recognize that the midline is off, but they will know something is not right. There are a lot of other things the dentist can do with tooth position to accomplish a natural-looking smile. F. Gum color: The color of the gums is another very important feature. The gums need to look like real gums. There are so many times the color of the gums gives the denture away. There are ways to custom-characterize the gums so you cannot tell they are fake. If you have not seen a denture like this, you have to see it to believe it. Even I am amazed at what a difference this makes. I am sure this will give your sister an idea of what can be done in the process of making a set of teeth that can make dentures look like real teeth. I hope this has helped and it wasnt boring to those of you who have already read it before. Dentures are a reality for many of you and if I can help just one through the use of this column, it is all worth it. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL2, 2013 C7 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.William Lyon Phelps was a popular columnist and public speaker who taught the first American university course on the modern novel. He said, If at first you dont succeed, find out if the loser gets anything. At the bridge table, a loser usually gives a trick to the opponents. Sometimes, though, taking that trick can be costly. In todays deal, what should be the result in four spades after West leads the club king? Note Easts balancing one-no-trump overcall. This shows only 11 to 15 points. With a normal strong no-trump, East doubles and rebids in notrump. Souths three-heart rebid and Norths jump to four spades were aggressive but reasonable. North liked his three-card spade support, a ruffing value in Souths second suit and an ace. South wins the first trick with dummys ace, plays a heart to his queen, cashes the heart ace, and leads another heart. Should West ruff with his spade 10 or pitch a minor-suit card? In general, if declarer is about to ruff a loser, the defender should discard. Here, if West ruffs, the contract can be made. South trumps the (say) club continuation, ruffs a heart on the board (bringing down Easts king), and plays a spade to his nine. He continues with a high trump and loses only two spades and one diamond. If West correctly discards at trick four, the play gets interesting. South ruffs, trumps a club in his hand and leads another heart. Now West must ruff! He then leads a minor, and South cannot avoid losing another two spades and one diamond to East.

Only my father and I deployed to combat areas. Dad retired five years ago and is showing drastic symptoms of PTSD. He is stockpiling food and medical supplies and keeps trying to get my wife and me to prepare for when it all hits the fan. He spends hours a day obsessively watching the news and getting angry at the television. Our children used to spend time unsupervised with my parents, but that stopped when I found a loaded handgun in his bathroom cabinet. My mother has broached the topic of therapy, and Ive offered to go with him, as Ive been wrestling with some mild PTSD issues myself. But my brothers intercede every time and say Dads fine and its no big deal, and they convince him not to go. I believe this is dangerous. Ive been unable to find any home counseling services, and even our pastor says this is out of his realm of expertise. What other options are out there? New York Son Dear Son: You may have better luck getting your father to accept help if you approach this as a possible medical problem, rather than a psychiatric issue. We also suggest you ask him to join you for an exercise or yoga class, which can be useful for some PTSD sufferers. Also, please contact the VAs National Center for PTSD (ptsd.va.gov) or Military One Source (militaryonesource.mil) at 1-800-342-9647, and ask to speak to a counselor or get a referral to local military treatment facilities. Dear Annie: My maternal grandparents passed within months of each other. My mother hated her parents and kept them away from us. I never knew them well. Im in my late 20s and have never been an emotional person. I went to my grandparents funerals out of respect, but my sister went overboard, sobbing and moaning during the service even though she knew them less than I did. For weeks after, she emailed and texted me saying she couldnt sleep and that shed never fill the hole the loss represented. My sister and my parents say Im heartless because I didnt respond this way. My mother actually upbraided me for not weeping sufficiently. People grieve in different ways. How do I nicely ask them to please stop crying on me because its making me uncomfortable? Not Grieving That Much Dear Grieving: Unless someone is crying on you day after day, please try to tolerate what you can, and then gently extricate yourself. Pat them on the shoulder. Get them a seat. Ask if they need a tissue. Then walk away. You dont have to demonstrate such obvious mourning yourself. You are right that everyone grieves differently, and you are not obligated to put on a show. But it would be useful to learn how to convey sympathy to others, whether or not you believe they deserve it. Dear Annie: I was surprised to learn that people register for housewarming gifts. I thought housewarming gifts were something simple like a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine or flowers. A neighbor brought me a cutting from a cactus that has bloomed on time for more than 40 years. Maybe Im old-fashioned, but I thought you furnished your house yourself as you were able over the years. Canaan, Conn. Dear Canaan: Most guests bring gifts to a housewarming. A registry is a bit much, but there is nothing wrong with having a friend or relative make suggestions when asked. Dear Readers: We are carrying on Ann Landers tradition that April 2 be set aside as Reconciliation Day, a time to make the first move toward mending broken relationships. It also would be the day on which we agree to accept the olive branch extended by a former friend or estranged family member and do our best to start over.

SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS Less than 24 hours after the shooting death of a Floral City woman, the man believed responsible was apprehended in Ocala, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. After his arrest overnight, Gregory Scott Holub, 29, of Bradenton, is facing seconddegree murder charges in the death of Deseray Lynn Bowles, 24, of Inverness. Holub is also charged with aggravated assault, according to CCSO spokeswoman Heather Yates. She said the sheriffs office received a tip that Holub was hiding in Ocala, and with the aid of the Ocala Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office, CCSO agents raided the hideout. In the area that Holub was arrested, our K-9 was able to track to a firearm, Yates said. It is unclear what kind of firearm it was or if it was the gun used to shoot Bowles. Gregory Holub apprended in Ocala. Fine day for fun and flying MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Longtime Citrus County educator Paul Heinze helps his 4-year-old niece Charlotte DeClerk lift off her kite Monday afternoon at Wallace Brooks Park in Inverness. Temperatures approaching 80 degrees and moderate breezes made for a picture-perfect afternoon for man y outdoor activities. Temperatures are forecast to remain in the 80s through most of the week, with an increasing chance of rain Thursday and Friday. Man charged in Easter morning shooting death of Inverness woman See ARREST / Page A2 One dead, one critical in cycle crash A motorcyclist was killed Sunday in a crash in Lecanto. The crash also left his passenger in critical condition. Gary Lynn McAllister, 60, of Grand Ledge, Mich., and his passenger Janice Kay Bayha, 65, of Eustis, were traveling eastbound on State Road 44 on a 2006 Yamaha Roadstar when a 2004 Lexus struck them, causing the motorcycle to collide with a stopped car. The driver of the Lexus, Leonard J. Decisneros, 96, of Lecanto, was traveling westbound on S.R. 44 and tried to make a left turn onto Crystal Oaks Drive. The stopped vehicle was at the intersection of Crystal Oaks Drive and S.R. 44. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Decisneros failed to observe McAllister and Bayha and drove into the eastbound lane, striking the right side of the motorcycle and launching the riders into the stopped vehicle. McAllister was pronounced dead at the scene and Bayha was transported to Ocala Regional Medical Center. The crash remains under investigation.

From staff reports HEALTH & LIFE: Marketing Marketing studies help craft the pitch for health care overhaul./ Page C1 Rubio claims pivot point on immigration overhaul Senator walking fine line on issue Associated PressWASHINGTON Whatever immigration deal might be claimed by labor and business, or by Democrats and Republicans, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is serving notice it has to go through him. The tea party favorite made it clear over the weekend he has a make-or-break role for the most sweeping immigration changes in decades. Its a high-risk strategy that also puts his presidential ambitions on the line. Four Republican senators are involved with Democrats in crafting a bipartisan bill to secure the nations borders, improve legal immigration and offer eventual citizenship to millions now in the U.S. illegally. But only Rubio has the conservative bona fides plus life-story credibility to help steer the bill through the Senate with strong support from the GOP and give it a chance in the House, where conservative Republicans hold more sway. More than anyone else, Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, could have the clout to hold off rebellion from conservative talk show hosts and a Republican base whose opposition helped kill immigration changes last time around, in 2007. And perhaps only Rubio could sink the entire effort just by walking away. Drones on the horizon Feds seek public input on program N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerLast year, some innovative engineers in San Francisco had an idea for a Tacocopter, an unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) that could deliver tacos to your house and you wouldnt have to tip a delivery person. That might sound farfetched, but drones are coming. Congress recently approved legislation to allow expanded drone flights over the U.S., and has asked the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) todevelop safety regulationssounmanned aircraft systems can share U.S. skies with manned aircraft by 2015. The FAA predicts as many as 10,000 commercial drones or more could flyby 2020. The March 2013 issue of National Geographic magazine From noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, the FAA will hold an online public engagement session. The public will have an opportunity to comment on the agencys proposed privacy policy for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The FAA will provide a brief overview of the UAS test site program and proposed privacy policy and then take comments from participants. Each participant will have three minutes for comments. The FAA encourages the public to provide comments to the docket. The FAA will listen and record all comments, but will not answer any questions during the session.

Looking for a local farm cooperative? Consider membership with The Path Farm Co-op. Sign up now while memberships are still available for the summer season, April 1 through Sept. 30. Call 352-527-6500, ext. 8, for membership price, payment options, questions or to sign up. The Path Farm Co-op offers families the opportunity to enjoy a variety of healthy vegetables. This seasons crop includes varieties of okra, eggplant, peppers (hot varieties and bell), zucchini, yellow squash, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and more. Most vegetables are harvested within 24 hours of the time they are received. That means they have less time to lose their flavor and nutritional value. The Path Farm grows naturally using environment-friendly resources like worm castings, river muck and other nutrient-rich resources. Supporting The Paths Farm Co-op means helping the men and women at The Path shelter improve their lifestyles. The Path grows, harvests and prepares each co-op basket all co-op members have to do is pick it up. The vegetables participants receive vary in size and appearance and are those that grow best in the area during the spring and summer growing seasons. Participants who make a financial commitment by purchasing a six-month membership take the same risk as the farmer in terms of weather conditions, and receive a basket of locally grown vegetables on a weekly basis. The Path has also been able to offer U Pick It days, an opportunity for co-op members to pick their own produce. The Path leads to good health Support better lifestyle with naturally grown vegetables, no pesticides Chronicle This seasons crop at The Path Farm Co-op includes okra, eggplant, peppers and zucchini. Bowles was shot and killed during the early hours of Easter Sunday. Investigators believe she was in a vehicle with another person on Rabbit Lane in Floral City when the shooting occurred. The person she was with drove her to Sleepy Hollow restaurant on nearby Gobbler Drive, where deputies responded. Bowles was subsequently transported to Citrus Memorial hospital where she died from her injuries. Deputies went on a massive manhunt following the shooting, looking for a man 6 feet tall, about 180 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. Communications dispatchers received the initial call at 3:49 a.m. Sunday. Yates said investigators later received a tip Holub was holed up in Ocala. Yates said Holub is not related to Bowles, but it is unclear if they knew each other. ARREST Continued from Page A1 reported more than 1,000 companies are currently in the drone business. Predator drones spot smugglers and illegal immigrants, and Global Hawks help NASA record atmospheric data and investigate hurricanes. About a dozen police departments, including Miami and Seattle, have applied to the FAA for permits to fly drones and as many as 18,000 other U.S. law enforcement agencies are potential customers. Recently in Hernando County, the Hernando County Aviation Authority applied to have Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport considered as a drone testing site for the FAA. This drew a small but vocal group of protestors outside the Hernando County Courthouse on Saturday, March 23, including protestors from Citrus County. Theyve since scratched the project but we came close, and thats worrisome, said Edna Mattos, a member of the Citrus County Tea Party and one of the protestors. These drones have wingspans that are 40 two 45 feet these are big and they crash, she said. We got involved because even though its Hernando County, theyd be flying in this area, too, and we dont know what dangers they pose to a community. What if one crashes into an elementary school or a senior center or on the parkway? We need assurances that theyre relatively safe, she said. Also, what are they going to be used for? How are they going to be tested and for how long? Safety isnt the only issue that concerns people. Matt Schnackenberg, chairman of the Libertarian Party of Hernando County, said drones pose a potential violation of Fourth Amendment rights (which guards against unreasonable search and seizure). For example, an individual could be driving a car and a drone could be flying behind you, tailing you. Theres the potential for you being tracked for no real reason, just to make sure youre not breaking the law, Schnackenberg said. Mattos said they werent opposed to technology or progress; they simply want transparency and accountability. If youre going to experiment, we want to know what youre going to do and how far its going to go, she said. I want to know that my rights are going to be protected.

Fort Myers Deejays suspended over April Fools jokeTwo southwest Florida deejays have been taken off the air following a fake water advisory apparently meant as an April Fools joke. During their Monday morning show on Gator Country 101.9, Val St. John and Scott Fish used a decades-old hoax, announcing that dihydrogen monoxide was coming out of Lee County taps. Dihydrogen monoxide is actually just another name for water. Tony Renda, general manager at the station, didnt find the joke funny. The News-Press reported he immediately pulled the duo and began airing a retraction and apology. Lee County Utilities spokeswoman Patty DiPiero said they had to spend the morning assuring concerned callers their water was safe. Around the STATE Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida lawmakers have complained for eight years that they cant even accept a cup of coffee under the lobbyist gift ban. They could have that cup of coffee under a bill that won its first committee approval Monday. Sen. Tom Lee, who is given credit for the gift ban passed in 2005, is sponsoring the bill (SB 1344). He said it tweaks the zero-tolerance gift ban without going back to the days when lobbyists routinely spent tons of money on expensive meals and drinks for lawmakers. Lees proposal would allow exceptions for one non-alcoholic beverage. It would also allow a meal, beverage and registration fees for a scheduled meeting or event in which the lawmaker is asked to speak or make a presentation. Another exception would allow the use of meeting space in government to government events. Its very narrowly drafted and as long as youre having a single meal in a single sitting associated with a speaking engagement, I dont think theres much opportunity for us to go awry, said Lee, RBrandon. And if lawmakers do accept a meal at an event at which theyre speaking, they will have to report it. I want to thank Sen. Lee for tweaking this law. It was needed, said Sen. Arthenia Joyner, who has complained in the past about not being able to accept a bottle of water when visiting district schools. Lee originally drafted the bill to allow lawmakers to accept meals up to $25 at widely attended events that the media were also allowed to attend, but removed the language because it was difficult to write it so that it couldnt be exploited. Its unfortunate, but bad apples spoil the bunch, said Lee. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCitrus County Sheriffs Fire Rescue Chief Larry Morabito has been trying to spread word about the virtues of fire sprinkler systems. And recently, a fire at a local apartment complex thwarted by a sprinkler system offers perhaps the best illustration of the importance of having one, especially in single-family homes, Morabito said. People would install sprinkler systems in their lawns, but would not do it for the house, where it could help save their own lives and those of their loved ones, Morabito said. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire in the home poses one of the biggest threats to people. In the U.S., fire departments responded to an average of 371,700 home structure fires per year during the five-year-period of 2006-10, according to the organization. About 350,000 of the fires occurred in homes without automatic extinguishing equipment (sprinkler systems). The group estimates an average of 2,600 civilian deaths, 12,900 civilian injuries, $7.2 billion in direct property damage, and 25,600 firefighter injuries at the fire ground or the scene per year. Locally, Morabito cites what recently happened at the Mayo Apartments near Crystal River as an example of what needs to be heeded. In 2009, there was a fire at one of the buildings and it went to the roof and more than 50 percent of the building was damaged. They didnt have a sprinkler system, Morabito said. But per code, when they rebuilt, they had to have a sprinkler system installed. It is currently not a requirement for single family homes to have sprinkler systems. In February, someone at Mayo Apartments left something on the stove to run to the store and it started a fire. But because the sprinkler system deployed when the flames reached 160 degrees, the fire was doused before it could spread. So, they ended up with some water damage and I think maybe a couple of apartments downstairs from them had some water damage. By having the system, the owner of that complex was saved a lot of money and disruption to the other residents, Morabito said. He is now urging homeowners and builders to make it a priority to install the systems. For builders of developments, he is even suggesting arrangements where requirements such as wider roads in subdivisions can be substituted for sprinkler systems. Subdivisions are usually required to have certain size roads to accommodate firefighting equipment. But with a sprinkler system, the thinking is some that equipment may not be necessary so they can have smaller roads. This will help the builders save some money and the homeowners can also get breaks on their insurance if they install the systems, Morabito said. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

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

Birthday In coming months, you could be luckier than usual in bringing things to successful conclusions. Although you should be able to depend on Lady Lucks help, you must also lend a hand. Aries (March 21-April 19) Be extremely careful that you dont achieve your purposes at the expense of someone else. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Usually you can do quite well in partnership situations, but this isnt likely to be the case if your aims differ considerably from the other party. Gemini (May 21-June 20) A potentially profitable endeavor that has been dormant for quite some time could become active, but youll need to redesign it in order to capitalize on it. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Dont get too closely involved with someone who has a dubious reputation. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If youre giving a price quote for a job or service, be sure your estimated cost is as accurate as possible. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When required to manage a serious situation for another, dont treat it indifferently. If you make a mistake, everyone will pay. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If youre not on top of things, someone might seize the reins and make a decision in his or her best interests, not yours. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Guard against an inclination to hold on to an idea long after it has proven to be unproductive. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Strive to be logical when making an assessment that would directly affect your financial position. It would likely prove to be disastrous to put all of your hopes on Lady Luck. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) In order to be a true leader, you must not be afraid to take charge of situations, even if you dont have a lot personally invested in their outcome. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Several important objectives can be achieved today, provided you dont trip over your own feet. Chances are it will be self-inflicted obstacles that will be your nemesis. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Be careful, because a well-intentioned friend might offer you some advice that, if you treat it as gospel, could prove to be costly. Listen to more than one source for counsel. Todays HOROSCOPES Today is Tuesday, April 2, the 92nd day of 2013. There are 273 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On April 2, 1863, during the Civil War, the Richmond Bread Riot erupted in the Confederate capital as a mob made up mostly of women, outraged over food shortages and risingprices, attacked and looted stores. On this date: In 1513, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon and his expedition landed in present-day Florida. In 1792, Congress passed the Coinage Act, which authorized establishment of the U.S. Mint. In 1912, the just-completed RMS Titanic left Belfast to begin its sea trials eight days before the start of its ill-fated maiden voyage. In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress to declare war against Germany, saying, The world must be made safe for democracy. (Congress declared war four days later.) In 1932, aviator Charles A. Lindbergh and John F. Condon went to a cemetery in The Bronx, N.Y., where Condon turned over $50,000 to a man in exchange for Lindberghs kidnapped son. (The child, who was not returned, was found dead the following month.) Ten years ago: During the Iraq War, American forces fought their way to within sight of the Baghdad skyline. Five years ago: President George W. Bush suffered a diplomatic setback when NATO allies rebuffed his pleas to put former Soviet republics Ukraine and Georgia on the path toward membership. One year ago: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled, 5-4, that jailers may perform invasive strip searches on peoplearrested even for minor offenses. Todays birthdays: Singer Leon Russell is 71. Actress Linda Hunt is 68. Singer Emmylou Harris is 66. Social critic and author Camille Paglia is 66. Actor Christopher Meloni is 52.

If the first-term senator decides against the bill, that just takes all the oxygen out of the room, said Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union. It may pass the Senate with Democrats support ... but thats not the kind of support you want out of the Senate if you expect passage out of the House. With that unique status, Rubio is walking a fine line. Hes helping negotiate the politically combustible legislation, which the bipartisan group is expected to unveil next week, while also taking care to maintain the conservative support that makes him so important to the process in the first place. For Rubio, more so than the other Republicans involved Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina theres danger in a fullthroated embrace of comprehensive immigration legislation. For some conservatives, it will always be toxic: Its a priority for Democrats and President Barack Obama that some foes see as granting amnesty to millions of lawbreakers. But Rubio also could see the biggest political payoff. Helping shepherd a comprehensive immigration bill to passage could win support from Hispanic voters that could be critical if he runs for president in 2016. GOP nominee Mitt Romneys dismal showing among Hispanic and Asian voters last November helped seal his loss, and McCain and many other Republicans warn that the GOP risks permanent minority status if it doesnt resolve the immigration issue. If hes the guy who helps navigate a reform package over the finish line in a way that brings conservatives along and makes Latinos happy, then his viability as a GOP candidate in 2016 goes way up, said Frank Sharry, executive director of Americas Voice, a group that advocates a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. All of this helps explain Rubios caution as the debate moves forward, an approach that was on display this past weekend. As Graham and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., were appearing on Sunday talk shows to all but declare an immigration deal completed after a hardwon agreement between business and labor on a new low-skilled worker program Rubio was putting out a different message: Not so fast. Reports that the bipartisan group of eight senators have agreed on a legislative proposal are premature, Rubio said in a statement that caused some consternation among immigration advocates. Even once there is a bill, he said, it will only be a starting point, the precursor to what he suggested should be lengthy committee hearings and debate, not to mention full consideration by the American public. Schumer hurried to dispute the notion of a disagreement between Rubio and himself, calling their difference semantics and praising Rubio as an active and strong participant in the negotiations. He is protecting some of the things that he thinks are very important in the bill, Schumer said on NBCs Meet the Press. But I dont think thatll stand in the way in any way of any final agreement. Obama spokesman Jay Carney said Monday the White House was encouraged by the positive comments over the weekend, but he was far from claiming victory. He said, The process continues and is not finished. He wouldnt comment on Rubios cautionary remarks.

Associated PressTRAVERSE CITY, Mich. It was the largest algae bloom in Lake Eries recorded history a scummy, toxic blob that oozed across nearly one-fifth of the lakes surface during the summer and fall of 2011. It sucked oxygen from the water, clogged boat motors and washed ashore in rotting masses that turned beachgoers stomachs. It was also likely an omen of things to come, experts said in a study released Monday. The warming climate and modern farming practices are creating ideal conditions for gigantic algae formations on Lake Erie, which could be potentially disastrous to the surrounding areas multibillion-dollar tourist economy. The shallowest and southernmost of the Great Lakes, Erie contains just 2 percent of their combined waters but about half their fish. According to the report, which was compiled by more than two dozen scientists, the 2011 runaway bloom was fueled by phosphorus-laden fertilizers that were swept from corn and soybean fields during heavy rainstorms. The combination of natural and man-made circumstances is unfortunately consistent with ongoing trends, which means that more huge algal blooms can be expected in the future unless a scientifically guided management plan is implemented for the region, said the reports lead author, Anna Michalak, of the Carnegie Institution for Science. The U.S. and Canada limited the use of phosphate laundry detergents and cracked down on Great Lakes pollution from industry and municipal sewage systems four decades ago. Those policies led to a drastic algae drop-off in Lake Erie, which had been declared all but dead. But algae began creeping back in the mid1990s, and the blooms have gotten progressively bigger. They consist largely of blue-green strains that are poisonous and cause skin irritation. Measurements in 2011 found that concentrations of a liver toxin they produce were hundreds of times higher than levels approved by the World Health Organization for drinking and recreational waters. Published in the online version of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the report said soil management practices in the regions corn and soybean fields are partly to blame. The lakes algae cover was about 90 percent smaller during drought-stricken 2012. Another group of scientists convened by the International Joint Commission,a U.S.-Canadian agency that deals with boundary waters, is developing recommendations for solving Lake Eries toxic algae problem. A draft version is scheduled to be released in May. Gloria Paprzcki, 73CRYSTAL RIVERGloria Rose Paprzycki, 73, of Crystal River, Fla., passed away Saturday, March 30, 2013, at home.

Pizza Hut rolls out new cheese crustNEW YORK Pizza Hut has found a new way to feed Americans more cheese a pizza crust made of little cheese-stuffed bread bowls. The chain on Wednesday is introducing a new pizza that comes surrounded by 16 semi-circles of cheese that can be pulled off and eaten separately. The Crazy Cheesy Crust, which will be available for several weeks, isnt the first time Pizza Hut has incorporated cheese into its crusts. In 1995, the chain introduced its stuffed crust pizza as a limited-time offer but the pies were such a hit that they soon became a permanent part of the menu. Even as fast-food chains increasingly look to cater to health-conscious diners, Pizza Huts latest invention shows Americans still have an appetite for indulgent new creations. Burger King, for example, recently rolled out its first turkey burger as part of a limited-time spring menu. But the menu also included a burger stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese, as well as tater tots stuffed with bacon and sweet onions. Pizza Hut has also offered variations of the cheesestuffed crust with pepperoni and other toppings hidden inside. Fast-food fanatics may also notice that the latest pizza has a similar shape to the chains Crown Crust pie that was introduced in the Middle East a year ago. That pie, which comes surrounded by mini-cheeseburgers, isnt available in the U.S., but images of it have circulated widely online. In Japan and Thailand, Pizza Hut has also offered pizzas with hot dogstuffed crusts.Argentina defends payment plan BUENOS AIRES, Argentina Argentina says its plan for paying $1.4 billion in defaulted debt is fully within the spirit of U.S. court rulings. But Wall Street analysts say the offer, a mix of new bonds to be paid out over the next 25 years, looks nothing like the letter of the law as the appellate court sees it. They say it boils down to just onesixth of what Argentina was told to hand over in cash. Many experts looking over the weekend at what President Cristina Fernandezs government filed with the court at midnight Friday said a new default by Argentina is now much more likely. And some are predicting that if Argentina loses, it will try to take its money out of U.S. banks, rather than submit to U.S. justice. Patent rejection could reverberateThe India Supreme Courts rejection of a patent for an improved version of a costly cancer drug by Novartis AG could have big implications for the worlds largest drugmakers. The ruling, which was handed down on Monday, signals the latest shift in the world of drug development in emerging markets such as India and Brazil, where drugmakers have been looking for growth. Western governments routinely grant patents for slightly improved versions of medicines whose patents are about to expire. That enables drugmakers to get many patients to upgrade to their new, generally more expensive versions rather than the cheaper, generic knockoffs even though some doctors and patients argue that the improvements dont justify the high cost. But India, Indonesia and some other developing countries have been bucking that trend. Theyve been shooting down Western patents and licensing local pharmaceutical companies to make cheap generic versions of medicines that most of their residents otherwise could not afford. Major drugmakers such as Pfizer and Bayer AG on Monday declined to say what they might do regarding the ruling.

Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market got off to a slow start in April, edging lower after the Standard and Poors 500 index eclipsed its all-time high last week. The main catalyst was a slowdown in U.S. manufacturing growth last month. The decline in the Institute for Supply Managements benchmark manufacturing index for March was worse than economists had forecast. Stocks started falling shortly after the report came out at 10 a.m. and stayed lower the rest of the day. The Dow Jones industrial average closed 5.69 points, or 0.04 percent, lower at 14,572.85. The Standard & Poors 500 index dropped 7.02 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,562.17. Industrial companies fell 1 percent, the most in the S&P 3M, which makes Post-it notes, industrial products and construction materials, fell 66 cents, or 0.6 percent, to $105.65. Caterpillar, a maker of construction and mining equipment, dropped $1.33, or 1.5 percent, to $85.64. Investors have raised their expectations for the U.S. economy as the market has climbed this year, said JJ Kinahan, chief derivatives strategist at TD Ameritrade. The Dow is up 11.2 percent in 2013, the S&P 9.5 percent. The numbers have to be outstanding in order to drive the market higher, Kinahan said. Its a different mindset when were at these levels. The S&P 500 closed the first quarter at an all-time high of 1,569.19, surpassing its previous record close of 1,565.15 set on Oct. 9, 2007. The index has recaptured all of its losses from the financial crisis and the Great Recession. The Dow broke through its previous all-time high March 5. The market has risen this year because of optimism that housing is recovering and that employers and starting to hire again. Strong company earnings and continuing stimulus from the Federal Reserve have also increased demand for stocks. Small stocks fared worse than large ones Monday. The Russell 2000, a benchmark of smallcompany stocks, fell 1.3 percent to 938.78, paring its gain for the year to 10.5 percent. It was the indexs biggest decline in more than a month. The Nasdaq composite fell 28.35 points, or 0.9 percent, to 3,239.17. April is historically the second-strongest month for stocks, Deutsche Bank analysts said in report released Monday. The S&P 500 has gained an average of 1.4 percent in April, based on returns since 1960, making it the second strongest month after December. The last meaningful setback for stocks started before Novembers election. The market slid 6 percent between Oct. 1 and Nov. 15 in the run-up to the vote and immediately afterwards on concerns that Washington would be unable to enact reforms to keep the economy growing. Evidence that growth is continuing, despite the political tensions in Washington, have kept stocks on an upward trajectory since then, leaving investors waiting for dips to add to their holdings. Id love to have some sort of a pullback here because Id think its an opportunity, said Scott Wren, an equity strategist at Wells Fargo Advisors. But it doesnt feel like were going to have one in the near term. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to its price, fell to 1.84 percent from 1.85 percent.

Page A8 TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 2013 Thanks for clearing waters Thank you for making a huge improvement in Hunters Spring. When I bought here in Magnolia Lodge Condos in 1984, the view was truly clear to the white sand bottom. Please do not let anyone or any group halt this impressive start to saving manatees and our beautiful Crystal River waters. My prayers are with you. Elaine Palmer Falling Waters, W.Va. seasonal Crystal River resident Adams off base in proposal While your March 10 editorial, No soliciting business as elected leader, is correctly critical of Commissioner Adams, it fails to adequately address the depth of the shortcomings of Mr. Adams actions and his thought (or perhaps thoughtless) process. The editorial appears to make comparison between Commissioner Adams actions and hypothetical actions by other commissioners to seek county business. However, Commissioner Adams was not seeking county business; rather, he was attempting to divert business from the county to a company in which he maintains an ownership interest. Had his efforts resulted in the transfer by F.D.S. Disposal to the Sumter County landfill in which Adams has an interest, the result would have been financially devastating to the Citrus County landfill operation. Given that this was the plain and uncontested purpose for Adams arranging the contact, Adams committed an egregious breach of his fiduciary duty to the citizens whom he was elected to represent and, indeed, serve.Elwood R. Harding Jr. Beverly Hills Do not suspend impact fees The Citrus County Builders Association wants the County Commissioners to suspend impact fees until the next study is done in 2014. I dont believe this is a good idea. We have lost a great deal of revenue from Duke Energy and this would only add more loss of revenue. The rationale for impact fees was that new construction puts additional demands on county services. Nothing has changed; new construction will result in more demand. It also is not fair to all of us who have already paid, or will pay impact fees in the future. Let the fees stand. Jan Malinowski Beverly Hills A national disgraceThe way our veterans are treated is disgraceful. This is not only an insult to our veterans but to all Americans, veterans or not. Remember the Walter Reed Army Medical Center disaster? So far nothing led to a dramatic improvement to help the veterans. The only solution I can think of is a massive protest by all Americans like in the times of the civil rights movements. We are wasting billions of dollars and helping everybody in the world except our veterans. Are we as Americans willing to pay the price of such nationwide protest to help our veterans? Wolfgang Schwenker Hernando If there is anything that links the human to the divine, it is the courage to stand by a principle when everybody else rejects it. Abraham Lincoln H istory is full of warnings about what happens when people follow public opinion instead of standing by their principles. In its most extreme manifestation, public opinion might well become mob rule when vigilantes take the law into their own hands. Major media have whipped the crowd into its latest frenzy over same-sex marriage, or should I say marriage equality, the latest euphemism, likely intended to make the masses more accepting of what was once unacceptable. And the masses, which increasingly answer none when asked about any religious affiliation or moral code, appear ready for it. The U.S. Supreme Court, not the Supreme Judge, now rules supreme. But there are consequences for living as one pleases. Look at the fallout that our culture continues to experience from the s generation and its throwing off of the ideals and structures of mainstream society. The Age of Aquarius, and its countercultural revolution, has given way to an increase in drug use, no-fault divorce, cohabitation, out-of-wedlock births and abortion. Everythings fair game. Nothings off limits. Anything goes. Now, we are about to witness the latest cultural domino to fall. Imagine states without boundaries and speed without limits. What same-sex marriage proponents seem to be asking the Court to do is to remove ancient boundary lines for human relationships based on what they wish to do. That opens the door to anything and everything else, depending on how well organized they are and what political clout they can muster. Personal experience, like that of Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), who announced recently that his son is gay, is now supposed to trump Scripture and the will of California voters? While most politicians take their oaths of office on the Bible, many of them prove by their actions that they dont believe, or follow, whats in it. Better they should place their hands on Rolling Stone or People magazines, which more accurately reflect the direction and attitude of contemporary culture. Perhaps Kim Kardashian should decide where the country stands on same-sex marriage? Its when individuals, not God, become the standard by which truth and right and wrong are judged that we get a Supreme Court deciding our ultimate direction. Some liberals believe the Constitution is a living document that must constantly evolve to fit the times. It is not. Some liberal theologians believe the same about the Scriptures. They believe these, too, must evolve, because serving God is no longer the standard; serving Man is. Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games trilogy has observed: ... collective thinking is usually short-lived. Were fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self-destruction. In his 1882 play, An Enemy of the People, Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen wrote, Public opinion is an extremely mutable thing. Indeed it is and the fickle public, relying on the opinion of others, instead of eternal truths, to shape beliefs, is treading on very thin ice that has already begun to crack. Following public opinion can and usually does, lead to moral, social and political anarchy. I give you the Roman Empire and the ancient city of Corinth, in the event that anything about history and how it can repeat itself, absent immutable principles, is being adequately taught in schools today.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tmseditors @tribune.com.

Eric Hoffer, The True Believer, 1951 Beware public opinion CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M. Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARD Gerry Mulligan .................................... publisherMike Arnold .............................................. editor Charlie Brennan ........................ managing editor Curt Ebitz .................................. citizen member Mac Harris ................................ citizen member Rebecca Martin .......................... guest member Brad Bautista .................................... copy chief Twolanes better than no lanes C onsideration of a twolane extension of the Suncoast Parkway through Citrus County could be just the ticket. Suncoast Parkway 2 detractors emphasize a belief that the volume of traffic on the Citrus portion would be insufficient to justify the cost. Now state transportation officials are pondering the possibility of scaling back Suncoast 2 from a multilane highway to a two-lane toll road. Accordnig to estimates, a two-lane extension could knock the cost from $500 million to $200 million to $300 million. The Suncoast Parkway makes sense for Citrus County for several reasons, among them: The primary existing north-south arteries U.S. 19 and U.S. 41 are already stressed and will become increasingly so in years to come. Much pollution-contaminated runoff from U.S. 19 flows to coastal rivers, bays and marshlands. The appeal of industry to locate operations in Citrus County is greatly hampered by the lack of turnpike/ interstate. State transportation and business leaders are strong advocates of extending the parkway. By scaling back the scope of the work, its increasingly financially feasible. At the same time, that should be balanced against the need to build for decades to come, not short-term demand. Allocating funds for right of way acquisition should be top priority, then pursuing which option two-lane or other can follow. Should the two-lane concept be embraced, if and when traffic volume warrants widening of the highway, that can be done based on demonstrated need. Talk of extending the Suncoast Parkway has new life and momentum in Tallahassee. Nows the time to get the wheels rolling on the extension through Citrus. The cost-containing alternative of initially building it as a two-lane toll road should be incentive to kick the project into high gear. THE ISSUE: Suncoast Parkway extension.OUR OPINION: Scaling back could get project in high gear.

Lets think about it. Weve got to think about our young people and our babies who are growing up. If we dont bring manufacturing in, there wont be any jobs for the future. Lecanto manufacturing does not harm Crystal River or Homosassa tourism in any way. Lets get some manufacturing in here now.More jobs, less idle time In response to the No to manufacturers: In my opinion, well have more drug problems. If you have more jobs, you have less time for stuff like that.Jobs bring improvementsThis person who put the article in Sound Off about No to manufacturers, obviously is probably a retired person thats got everything and all the money they need so they want to just sit back in a quiet community and not have to worry about anything else. But for the hundreds of people that could use a job around here, could use some help and some work, its a different story. So if this person doesnt want manufacturers to come into this town, why dont he go live in the woods where its quiet and nobody will bother him there. And then let the rest of this county try to improve itself, improve the economy, get some manufacturers into this area so jobs and the standard of living can be improved. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects. You do not need to leave your name, and h ave less than a minute to record. COMMENTS will be edited for length, libel, personal or political attacks and good taste. Editors will cut libelous material. OPINIONS expressed are purely those of the callers. C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE GET ROLLING Hot Corner: MANUFACTURING Sound OFF Just buy new Bad info embarrasses government. Is the Chronicle delirious? This piece of equipment hasnt been covered by any warranty for years. The county has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars fixing it multiple times. If they keep doing this, we will own a $1 million piece of equipment that will still continue to break down, requiring more expensive repairs. It will be cheaper in the long run if they buy a new one already. And Scott Adams ploys should not be overlooked. Everything he and his handlers do are anti-local government. Wake up already.Keep impact fees This is in response to the headlinein todays paper, Builders: Suspend impact fees. I dont believe that that is a good idea. What about, they want to ask for a suspension. We are losing a tremendous amount of tax income because of Duke Energy. How can we afford to lose more tax fees? The Builders Association said to put it on suspension until the next study is done. Why not leave it til the next study is done? What a bout the people whove already paid impact fees and all the people who are going to pay impact fees? Its not fair to them or us. Cal Thomas OTHER VOICES

Thanks book lovers Thank you once again Citrus County. You continue to show your love of books and reading as well as recognition of great bargains. Your support of the Friends of Citrus County Library System and our libraries was fantastic. In the recently completed Spring Book Sale you turned out to shop the many quality books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles and games at discount prices. The spring fundraiser raised $39,671.37 for our libraries and the Citrus County system. Our grand total since FOCCLS began in fall 2001 is $748,557.37 almost a quarter of a million dollars. With the budget constraints on all services, and the even greater use of the libraries, these figures are particularly significant. This money has enabled the libraries to provide new books, including ebooks, and other materials requested by patrons to add even more to our libraries importance and satisfaction in the community. In addition to helping our libraries, the Central Ridge, Coastal Region and Lakes Region friends partners again collected donations for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library project which provides a book a month for children from birth to age 5. Our customers contributed $360 to help defray expenses of $30 a year per child for postage to continue the delivery of these great books. As a direct result, twelve children on the waiting list will receive their books. Our sales are huge undertakings, and we owe their success to many community organizations. We are very grateful to the many individuals and groups who helped to make the spring sale another triumph. The Citrus County Chronicle as in the past, has been a great cosponsor of the semiannual event. We especially appreciate the help from Deb Kamlot, Sarah Gatling and the staff of the community and news departments including Editor Mike Arnold, reporters Matt Beck and Nancy Kennedy, and editors of the weeklies, as well as the shipping department for use of the truck and driver at the end of the sale. Thank you to Steve Sachewicz and Quest Wealth Management for donating a 2013 Kindle Fire HD to raffle and for underwriting refreshments for our volunteers. His contributions were responsible for more than $1,336 of our total. We also thank WYKETV and Dennis Miller for their continued support; the staff of the Citrus County Auditorium and Parks and Recreation for their friendliness and assistance; the many energetic Rotarians of Inverness for setting up more than 100 tables; the Citrus High School Air Force JROTC students for distributing 930 jampacked banana boxes in set up and for after-sale clean up; the Inverness Walmart SuperCenter for banana boxes and the Crystal River Publix, Crystal River Sweetbay, and Walgreens for supplying plastic bags; and Sue and Tom Smith of Maja Signs & Designs for providing our new Treasures banner and updating our Sales Proceeds banner. Many thanks as well to the entire library staff and our faithful courier, Lee Seagreaves, for their help in collection and delivery of donated materials. The success of these fundraisers also depends on the hard work and devotion of the FOCCLS volunteers. To the 150 Friends who worked this sale, many thanks for your energy and enthusiasm. Finally, and most importantly, we salute the people of Citrus County who make these events possible by their contributions of quality books and by their patronage of the sales. We couldnt succeed without you. FOCCLS accepts your donations year round. Volunteers are now at work sorting, pricing and packing boxes for our next sale, September 27 through October 1, at the Citrus County Auditorium. Please read-returnrecycle.

For 35 years the generosity of Citrus Countys contributors has provided us with the resources: food, clothing, furniture, and monetary donations to take care of our neighbors need. C.U.B has quietly gone about meeting the responsibilities outlined in our original charter, with your help People Helping People was born. Over the years the County Commissioners and the city of Inverness have worked together to provide C.U.B. with either a building to work out of the basement of the old courthouse in the early days, or property to place our own buildings on 103 N. Mill Ave., Inverness, where we are currently located. During the years there have been many changes. In keeping with the forward movement of growth and progress, the city of Inverness continues to improve and upgrade their downtown area and waterfront properties. The property we currently utilize falls into these plans. In our 35 years together, the residents of Citrus County have continued to support us. Through the kindness of many, we have purchased property on U.S. 41 North, and our building fund is at approximately 60 percent of our total goal for our new building which will become our permanent home. Our commitment to helping Citrus County residents facing temporary hardship is as strong today as it was in the beginning, with your help we will continue to meet the needs of the community. Happy 35th Anniversary thank you Citrus County for making it possible. Citrus United Basket would like to invite you to help us celebrate. Look for our building awareness events during 2013. We kickedoff our year this spring at the Citrus County Fair where our third annual boat raffle tickets will be available. We will have special events throughout the year to commemorate. 2013 Building help, building hope, building community, building awareness and we are building a new building. Drive by our property on 41 in Inverness and look for our banner. Watch our goal meter to check on our progress. And join us in anticipation as the building process develops. Please join us in building our future a future in which we continue doing what we do with your help. Call us at 352-344-2242, email us at cubcxec direciDr@embarqmail. com, visit us at 103 Mill Ave., Inverness, or like us on Facebook. Thank you for being a part of People Helping People 1978 to 2013 and beyond. Jennifer Campbell director People Helping People Protecting our rights as militia As I continue to read the babble in this paper about our Constitutional rights, in particular our Second Amendment, I am sadly amused by the number of people who spout off about our rights to own and bear arms, clearly demonstrating they do not have a clue about what our Founding Fathers were doing when they created our founding documents. Our Constitution, from start to finish, refers to by the people, for the people and of the people and most definitely not by the federal government, state government or the military, which are tools of the people and are subject to the people. The Second Amendment was created to give the people the right to defend themselves from attacks from without and within; therefore the words militia and the people, in the Second Amendment, mean exactly the some thing. E.G. Yerian is not the first to try to split the militia and the people in the Second Amendment and without a doubt will not be the last, but it just does not work and is unconstitutional. The sad fact is most Americans have little or no knowledge of what is in our Constitution or why the founding fathers created the Constitution the way they did, even though it is the supreme law of the land. By the way hunters, your rights to hunt with firearms are a fringe benefit of the Second Amendment and you might want to keep that in mind the next time you attack anyones rights to have certain kinds of firearms, because if we lose the Second Amendment you will also lose your hunting firearms. We are all in this together, so please do not tell us what we can have or do not need. Arthur R. Vinson Floral City Thanks from West Citrus Elks Thank you to the Citrus County community for supporting all of our fundraising events this year. Thanks also to the Citrus County Chronicle for all of the invaluable publicity. Thanks to the members of the Elks for all of their help and support throughout this year.

Through your hard work and dedication we were able to lend assistance to those in need. Thanks again for a successful year! Mary Waterfield Ladies of the West Citrus Elks Homosassa Demand ban on assault weapons Why has the bill banning the sale of assault weapons been stalled in the Senate? Its because our members in Congress are so influenced by the NRA, gun manufacturers, and gun dealers for their generous campaign donations. That money is dripping with blood. More than 100 million Americans want assault weapons sales banned to the general public and only available to the police and military. Have members in Congress no conscience, blood flowing through their veins, beating heart or soul? Call members in Congress to tell them to pass that bill banning assault weapons and insist on a background check of gun buyers prior to the actual sale. The switchboard number at the Capitol is 202-224-3121. Mr. and Mrs. America, you voted members of Congress in; you can also vote them out.

US blasts Egypt arrest warrantCAIRO The U.S. State Department said Monday that arrest warrants and the investigation of a popular Egyptian satirist and other critics of Egypts Islamist president highlight a disturbing trend of growing restrictions on freedom of expression in the country. The strongly worded statement by U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland Monday came a day after Bassem Youssef, who criticizes President Mohammed Morsi and hard-line clerics on his Jon Stewart-style show, was released on bail following an interrogation into accusations he insulted Morsi and Islam. Afghan teen kills US soldier KABUL, Afghanistan An Afghan teenager fatally stabbed an American soldier in the neck as he played with children in eastern Afghanistan, officials said Monday, as the U.S. death toll rose sharply last month with an uptick in fighting due to warmer weather. The soldier was playing with children outside when the attacker came from behind and stabbed him in the neck with a large knife, officials said. Hamas re-elects Mashaal as leader CAIRO The Islamic militant group Hamas on Monday re-elected longtime leader Khaled Mashaal, officials said, choosing a relative pragmatist who has sparred with movement hardliners in the past over his attempt to reconcile with Western-backed Palestinian rivals. The secretive Hamas did not issue an announcement, but Mashaals re-election was confirmed by two Hamas officials. The vote late Monday capped a year of internal elections spread over several countries and shrouded in mystery.NKorean leaders meet amid tension SEOUL, South Korea After weeks of war-like rhetoric, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gathered legislators Monday for an annual spring parliamentary session taking place one day after top party officials adopted a statement declaring building nuclear weapons and the economy the nations top priorities. The meeting of the Supreme Peoples Assembly follows near-daily threats from Pyongyang, including vows of nuclear strikes on South Korea and the U.S. Pyongyang has reacted with anger over routine U.S.-South Korean military drills and a new round of U.N. and U.S. sanctions that followed its Feb. 12 underground nuclear test, the countrys third. Analysts see a full-scale North Korean attack as unlikely and say the threats are more likely efforts to provoke softer policies toward Pyongyang from a new government in Seoul, to win diplomatic talks with Washington and to solidify the young North Korean leaders military credentials at home. Conn. lawmakers OK tough gun laws HARTFORD, Conn. Connecticut lawmakers announced a deal Monday on what they called some of the toughest gun laws in the country that were proposed after the December mass shooting in the state, including a ban on new high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the massacre that left 20 children and six educators dead. The proposal also called for background checks for private gun sales and a new registry for existing magazines that carry 10 or more bullets. Stockton to enter bankruptcySACRAMENTO, Calif. The people of Stockton will feel financial fallout for years after a federal judge ruled Monday to let the city become the most populous in the nation to enter bankruptcy. But the case is also being watched closely because it could answer the significant question of who gets paid first by financially strapped cities retirement funds or creditors. In making his ruling, Klein disagreed with creditors who argued Stockton failed to pursue all avenues for straightening out its financial affairs.Delay seen in health law WASHINGTON The Obama administration is proposing a one-year delay in a feature of the new health care law intended to give workers at small companies health plan choices similar to what employees of large businesses enjoy. Starting Jan. 1, small companies with up to 100 workers will be able to buy coverage through new health insurance marketplaces called exchanges. As originally envisioned, employees would have been the ones to pick their plans. But now, for the first year, the employer will choose for the entire company.Dogfight raid in Mississippi JACKSON, Miss. A raid on a barn in northern Mississippi over the weekend busted up what is thought to be one the biggest annual dogfights in the United States with organizers and participants from around the country, authorities said Monday. A monthslong investigation involving numerous federal, state and local agencies culminated in the raid Saturday night where at least 200 people gathered in a barn at the end of a dirt road in Benton County, authorities said. Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson said the man believed to be the main organizer was arrested at the scene.

Irving, who was arrested last week in Maine, disappeared 34 years ago while awaiting sentencing in Massachusetts for three rapes. Caught Associated PressCENTENNIAL, Colo. For James Holmes, justice is death, prosecutors said Monday in announcing they will seek his execution if he is convicted in the Colorado movie theater attack that killed 12 people. The decision disclosed in court just days after prosecutors publicly rejected Holmes offer to plead guilty if they took the death penalty off the table elevated the already sensational case to a new level and could cause it to drag on for years. Its my determination and my intention that in this case, for James Eagan Holmes, justice is death, District Attorney George Brauchler said, adding that he had discussed the case with 60 people who lost relatives in the July 20 shooting rampage by a gunman in a gas mask and body armor during a midnight showing of the latest Batman movie. There was no audible reaction from the 25-year-old former neuroscience graduate student, who sat with his back to reporters, or from victims families in the courtroom. Holmes parents sat side by side in the gallery, clutching hands with fingers intertwined. The decision had been widely predicted by legal analysts. Within minutes of it becoming official, the trial was pushed back from August to next February and Judge William B. Sylvester removed himself from the case, saying now that the charges carry the death penalty they will take years to resolve and he does not have the time to devote to such a drawn-out matter. Despite the potential for more delays, some of those who lost loved ones were happy with prosecutors decision. I had a huge adrenaline rush, said Bryan Beard, whose best friend Alex Sullivan was killed in the attack. I love the choice. I love it, I love it. He added: I hope Im in the room when he dies. Justice is death Prosecutors to seek death penalty for Holmes in Colorado slayings James Holmes Associated PressBEIRUT March was the bloodiest month yet in Syrias 2-year-old conflict with more than 6,000 documented deaths, a leading antiregime activist group said Monday, blaming the increase on heavier shelling and more violent clashes. Rami Abdul-Rahman, who heads the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the increased toll is likely incomplete because both the Syrian army and the rebel groups fighting the government often underreport their dead in the civil war. Both sides are hiding information, Abdul-Rahman said by phone from Britain, where his group is based. It is very difficult to get correct info on the fighters because they dont want the information to hurt morale. The numbers, while provided by only one group, support the appraisal of the conflict offered by many Syria watchers: The civil war is largely a military stalemate that is destroying the countrys social fabric and taking a huge toll on civilians. The increase also reflects the continuing spread of major hostilities to new parts of Syria. While clashes continue in Aleppo, Damascus and Homs, Syrias three largest cities, rebels have launched an offensive in recent weeks to seize towns and army bases in the southern province of Daraa, largely with the help of an influx of foreign-funded weapons. The Observatory, which works through a network of contacts in Syria, said those killed in March included similar numbers of combatants on both sides: 1,486 rebels and army defectors and 1,464 soldiers from the Syrian army. But the number of civilians killed exceeded them both: 2,080 total for the month, including 298 children and 291 women. In addition, there were 387 unidentified civilians and 588 unidentified fighters, most of them foreigners fighting with the rebels, bringing the March total to 6,005, Abdul-Rahman said. He criticized the international community for not doing more to stop the bloodshed, which he said could increase. If there is no solution, we think the numbers will get worse in the coming months, he said. The March toll surpassed what had previously been the deadliest month, August 2012, when airstrikes, clashes and shelling killed more than 5,400 people, Abdul-Rahman said. His total death toll for the conflict through the end of March was 62,554, a number he acknowledged as incomplete, suggesting the true figure could be twice as high. Bloodiest month for Syria Associated Press In this March 13 photo released by the Syrian official news agency SANA, Syrian doctors treat a man who was wounded at the scene where two mortar rounds exploded near an orphanage, at the al-Boukhtyar area in Damascus, Syria. More than 6,000 people were killed in the Syrian civil war in March alone, according to a leading activist group. Group claims more than 6,000 people killed in March Associated PressWASHINGTON Spending on U.S. construction projects rebounded in February, helped by a surge in home construction, which rose to the highest level in more than four years. Construction spending rose 1.2 percent overall in February compared to January, when construction had dropped 2.1 percent, the Commerce Department reported Monday. Spending rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $885.1 billion, which was 7.9 percent higher than a year ago. The advance was led by a 2.2 percent rise in private residential construction, which climbed to an annual rate of $303.4 billion, the best showing since November 2008. Private nonresidential construction was up 0.4 percent while public construction rose 0.9 percent. Construction spending is expected to keep growing this year, fueled by more homebuilding and broader improvement in the economy. For all of 2012, construction spending increased 9.8 percent, marking the first annual gain after five straight years of declines. Construction spending is still well below healthy levels. But it is slowly coming back, led by a recovery in housing that looks to be strengthening this year. Steady hiring and nearly record-low mortgage rates have encouraged more Americans to buy homes. More people are also moving out on their own after living with friends and relatives in the recession. Thats driving a big gain in apartment construction and also pushing up rents. In February, spending on single-family construction rose 4.3 percent, helping to offset a 2.2 percent drop in apartment construction. Residential activity is now 20.1 percent above where it was a year ago. Construction spending up in February BUILDUP: Spending on U.S. construction projects rose 1.2 percent in February, helped by a 2.2 percent surge in home construction, which rose to the highest level in more than four years. THE COMPONENTS: Private residential construction climbed to an annual rate of $303.4 billion, the best showing since November 2008. Private nonresidential construction was up 0.4 percent while public construction rose 0.9 percent. THE OUTLOOK: Steady hiring and nearly recordlow mortgage rates have encouraged more Americans to buy homes.

The club also announced it purchased the contracts of right-handed reliever Jamey Wright and first baseman Shelley Duncan, who signed minor league deals this winter. Meanwhile, catcher Craig Albernaz was reassigned to the minors. The club purchased the contract of right-hander Juan Carlos Oviedo, who then was placed on the 60-day disabled list due to Tommy John surgery. Scott was placed on the DL, retroactive to March 24.

The Oakland Raiders have traded for Seattle backup quarterback Matt Flynn in the teams latest change at the games most important position. The deal announced by the Seahawks on Monday signals the end to Carson Palmers tenure in Oakland. Palmer is expected to be dealt to Arizona. Oakland will send a fifthround pick in 2014 and a conditional pick in 2015 to Seattle for Flynn, who left Green Bay and signed a lucrative free agent deal with Seattle last year. But he couldnt beat out rookie Russell Wilson for the starting job. The Raiders also will receive a late-round pick from Arizona if the deal for Palmer is completed.

Pardee was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1986. Pardee played three seasons at Texas A&M and was the 14th overall pick in the 1957 NFL draft by Los Angeles. He played for the Rams from 1957-64, sat out a year to deal with melanoma, and played seven more seasons. He was the Chicago Bears head coach from 1975-77. He coached the Redskins from 1978-80. He served as San Diegos defensive coordinator for one season, then returned to Texas to coach the USFLs Houston Gamblers. When the USFL disbanded in 1987, Pardee became the coach at the University of Houston. Pardee became the coach of the NFLs Houston Oilers in 1990, and led the team to the playoffs in each of his first four seasons. Texas Tech, Tubby Smith agree on dealTubby Smith is coming to Texas Tech to try to turn around another wayward program. A person with knowledge of the deal said Texas Tech agreed to terms Monday with Smith on a contract to be its next coach. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. Smith takes over for interim coach Chris Walker, who went 11-20 this season and 3-15 in Big 12 play. Smith was fired by Minnesota last week after six seasons. He led them to three NCAA tournaments and this year delivered the programs first tourney win over sixth-seeded UCLA since 1997. From wire reports McDermott repeats on AP hoops team Associated PressDoug McDermott made Creighton history last season when he was selected as the schools first player on the AP All-America team. Now hes done it again. The 6-foot-8 junior forward, the second-leading scorer in Division I, was a repeat selection Monday, the 51st player to earn the honor in consecutive seasons. Its pretty crazy. I couldnt expect to have as good a year as I did, said McDermott, who averaged 23.1 points and 7.5 rebounds while shooting 56.1 percent from the field and 49.7 percent from 3-point range. Trey Burke of Michigan and Otto Porter Jr. of Georgetown tied as the leading votegetters for first team, while Victor Oladipo of Indiana and Kelly Olynyk of Gonzaga were the other players selected. McDermott, who led the Bluejays to the Missouri Valley Conference championship with a title-game win over Wichita State, wasnt shocked that he was the second repeat selection in as many years, following Jared Sullinger of Ohio State. But the honor was satisfying. Its not too surprising because I approach the game the same every time, he said. I knew I could kick it into gear and have a special season. Its tough to do what I did with the defenses I faced. I got a lot more attention. I found ways to expand my game. I was really pleased. So was his coach, and father. Im just really proud of the season that he was able to put together, Greg McDermott said. On one hand he was able to consistently put up incredible numbers on a team that won a lot of games. At the end of the day I know that was most important to Doug.

Jon Lester and the Boston bullpen were aggressive against a barely recognizable New York Yankees lineup. The Red Sox looked as if they were in a hurry to put a dreadful 2012 season behind them. Theyre off to an impressive start, giving new manager John Farrell an 8-2 win on opening day Monday. I think how you saw it (Monday) is how we can win a lot of ballgames, new designated hitter Jonny Gomes said. It was kind of all there early. Shane Victorino led a revamped Red Sox lineup with three RBIs and Bradley walked three times and scored twice in his big league debut. Bostons big day against CC Sabathia (01) came a year after it lost its first three games under Bobby Valentine and went on to a 69-93 finish. Facing a Yankees lineup minus injured Derek Jeter for the first time since 2001 and just three starters from opening day a year ago, Lester (1-0) gave up five hits and two runs in five sharp innings against the defending AL East champions. Its big, Lester said. Its obviously a lot nicer than the past couple of years to be on top 1-0 instead of going through a whole road trip without a win again. Yankees stars Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira also are on the disabled list. Youre talking about some of the best players in the game. Its going to be a little different, Sabathia said. But we know what we have to do and whos not here. Thats not an excuse. Bradley, meanwhile, made an immediate impact after earning a spot with a strong spring training performance. In his first plate appearance, the ever-smiling 22-year-old outfielder worked a one-out walk after falling behind 0-2. That helped Boston touch up the big lefty for four runs in the second inning and start the angry rumblings of 49,514 anxious Yankees fans. Young No. 44 then stole a potential RBI hit from Robinson Cano with a running, twisting grab in a swirling wind in left field in the third. Bradley added an RBI groundout in the seventh. All in a days work for the unflappable rookie. I wasnt nervous. I was ready, Bradley said. Just trying to do whatever I can to help the team win.

After Mondays matches at the Jonesville Tennis Center, deep and experienced Ocala Forest leads with 11 points. And with players competing in all but one of the singles finals, in addition to having both doubles teams still alive, the Wildcats would have to collapse to miss out on the district championship. CHS and LHS each have eight points, three more than Ocala Vanguard, entering todays play with the Hurricanes sending out finalists at No. 1 (Melanie Dodd), No. 4 (Juliann Johnson) and No. 5 singles (Leah Stanley), as well as semifinalists at No. 2 doubles (Johnson/HunterPospiech). The Panthers will counter with a finalist at No. 2 (Madison Gamble) and No. 3 singles (Simi Shah) in addition to semifinalists at No. 1 doubles (Madison and Amber Gamble) and No. 2 doubles (Shah/Megan Jervis). Knowing the top two district finishers advance, Citrus coach Scott Waters said he was pleased with where his team sits. Im pleasantly surprised, Waters said. We have a young group. I figured wed hold our own this year, but the girls keep getting better and better. Theyve exceeded expectations. Waters pointed to Stanley, who just began playing tennis a year ago, and Johnson, who opened the season 2-3 but enters her final against Forests Kinley Rogers on a nine-match winning streak, as examples. And then he talked about Dodd, who appeared to be very comfortable on Jonesvilles clay courts in victories against Amber Gamble (6-0, 6-1) and Gainesvilles Hanna Helmerson (6-3, 6-1). Shes the story of the year, Waters said. She hasnt lost an organized school match ever. She was undefeated in both years of middle school and all three years of high school so far. Shes just a junior, and she continues to work to improve her game. Shes so consistent and every shot she hits is with a plan. She moves her opponents all around purposely and shes added a drop shot this year, making her even more effective. Lecanto and Citrus didnt fair quite as well on the boys side. There, powerful Gainesville (10 points) and Forest (nine) are comfortably ahead of LHS and Vanguard (six points each). CHS concluded the afternoon with See TENNIS / Page B3

Associated PressWASHINGTON Bryce Harper homered in his first two atbats, Stephen Strasburg retired 19 batters in a row at one stretch, and the defending NL East champion Washington Nationals opened the season with a 2-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Monday. For Strasburg (1-0), this marked the start of what should be his first full season in the majors, with zero pitch or inning limits. The All-Star ace was dominant against a tradedepleted Marlins lineup that features Giancarlo Stanton and little else. The right-hander went seven innings, matching his career high, and allowed three hits. Reigning NL Rookie of the Year Harper, a 20-year-old outfielder, hit solo shots over the out-of-town scoreboard in right-center field off Ricky Nolasco (0-1) in the first and fourth innings. New closer Rafael Soriano got the save. NATIONAL LEAGUE Braves 7, Phillies 5 ATLANTA Freddie Freeman drove in three runs with three hits, including the first of three Atlanta home runs, and the Braves beat Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia Phillies 7-5. Dan Uggla and Justin Upton, making his Braves debut, also homered for Atlanta, which led National League teams with 49 in spring training. Hamels (0-1) struggled in his first opening day start. He gave up five runs on seven hits, including the three homers, with five strikeouts and one walk in five innings. Mets 11, Padres 2NEW YORK Jonathon Niese stepped nicely into his new role as No. 1 starter for the Mets, and Collin Cowgill capped a successful New York debut with a grand slam in an 11-2 rout of the San Diego Padres. Marlon Byrd had a pair of RBI singles and fellow Mets newcomer John Buck was in the middle of three rallies as New York improved baseballs best opening day record to 34-18 despite dropping its first eight openers. Cubs 3, Pirates 1 PITTSBURGH Jeff Samardzija struck out nine in eight nearly flawless innings and the Chicago Cubs held on for a 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The right-hander allowed just two hits and walked one as Chicago won on opening day for the first time since 2009. Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run homer for the Cubs. A.J. Burnett gave up three runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings, striking out 10. Brewers 5, Rockies 4, 10 inn. MILWAUKEE Jonathan Lucroy hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 5-4 victory over Colorado, ruining the first game for new Rockies manager Walt Weiss. Rickie Weeks sparked the winning rally when he stole second after he was hit by a pitch with one out. Adam Ottavino (0-1) then issued an intentional walk to Ryan Braun and lost Aramis Ramirez to another walk before Lucroy ended the game with a fly ball to center field. Dodgers 4, Giants 0 LOS ANGELES Clayton Kershaw launched his first career home run to break a scoreless tie in the eighth inning, then finished off a four-hitter that led the Los Angeles Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants 4-0. Kershaw struck out seven, walked none and retired World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval on a grounder to end it. Kershaw became the first pitcher in the majors to homer on opening day since Joe Magrane of St. Louis in 1988, and the first Dodgers pitcher to do it since Don Drysdale in 1965. AMERICAN LEAGUE White Sox 1, Royals 0 CHICAGO Chris Sale outpitched James Shields, Tyler Flowers homered and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 1-0. A dominant performance by Sale and Flowers drive leading off the fifth against Shields were just enough. It also gave the White Sox a rare win over the Royals, who took 12 of 18 from them a year ago. Tigers 4, Twins 2MINNEAPOLIS Justin Verlanders five shutout innings at frosty Target Field held up for Detroit, and the defending American League champion Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2. With the gametime temperature at 35 degrees and the wind blowing at 17 mph, fans had to bundle up. But opening day is always a draw, as evidenced by the announced crowd of 38,282, a sellout by Twins guidelines. Prince Fielder had two hits and an RBI to help spoil Vance Worleys first start for the Twins, who left 12 runners on, including the bases loaded in the seventh. INTERLEAGUE PLAY Angels 3, Reds 1, 13 inn. CINCINNATI Chris Iannetta hit a solo homer and a bases-loaded single in the 13th inning, powering the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in the majors first interleague season opener.

PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles embrace heightened expectations that accompany success within the rugged AL East, which again figures to be one of the most balanced divisions in baseball. The teams begin the season today at Tropicana Field, each brimming with confidence and eager to set the tone for achieving a goal of playing deep into October. We feel we have a group that is capable of getting to the playoffs, playing the last game of the year and winning it, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria said. You should never run away from expectations, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon echoed. We dont believe its hyperbole. We really think it can be done. So do the Orioles, who stopped a string of 14 consecutive losing seasons by winning 93 games and beating Texas in the AL wildcard game last fall. One of the challenges this year is to prove their run, which ended with a loss to the AL East champion Yankees in Game 5 of the divisional series, wasnt a fluke. We went through a heck of journey together last year. Weve got a lot of people that know what the journey is about, and know whats expected, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. It seems like an eternity since we started spring training, Showalter added. But it doesnt seem like an eternity since we finished in New York last year. I think thats good. AL Cy Young Award winner David Price (20-5, 2.56 ERA in 2012) will make his second career opening day start for the pitching-rich Rays, who have the third-best regular season record in baseball over the past five years behind the Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies. The Orioles will counter with Jason Hammel (8-6, 3.43), who welcomes the opportunity to help Baltimore get off on the right foot. A strong April could be one of the keys to getting back to the postseason. Everybody knows the division is going to be tough the whole year, so you want to get off to a good start. ... The Rays are a good team with a good staff, and I hope we can grind out some wins, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said. Its more important to get off to a good start in general just to build yourself some momentum, center fielder Adam Jones said. The schedule is not going to change. Were going to play our division a lot and Im sure in September, were going to be heavy-loaded with playing them again, he said. Weve all got to play the same schedule. Its just a matter of whos going to come out on top. Despite playing a significant portion of 2012 without Longoria, a three-time All-Star who was sidelined three months with a partially torn left hamstring, the Rays won at least 90 games for the fourth time in five years and finished third in the division behind the Yankees and Orioles. But after making a surprising run to the World Series in 2008 and returning to the playoffs twice over the next four years, anything short of playing deep into October is a bitter disappointment in Tampa Bay. Maddon expects a solid pitching staff led by Price and closer Fernando Rodney to again fuel a strong bid for the division title. He also believes the offense and defense could be more efficient with the addition of infielders James Loney, Kelly Johnson and Yunel Escobar. Our goal is not to be watching everybody else play at the end of the year, Maddon said. Thats our mindset. We never count ourselves out. We continue to plug on, Price added. Nobody really envisions us being there at the end of the year, but we all do. We dont care about how much guys are getting paid, who were playing. ... We have one common goal get to the last game of the season and win it. Associated Press Tampa Bays Evan Longoria bats March 28 during a spring training game against the Baltimore Orioles in Sarasota. A healthy Longoria will be one key for the Rays to make a deep October run this season.

S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE concluded the afternoon with three points. That doesnt mean neither team made an impact. In one of the No. 1 singles semifinals, the PanthersRishi Gurnani knocked off FHSs Phillip Libby 6-4, 46, 6-3. The loss was just the third of the season for Libby, who owned two regular-season wins against the Lecanto captain, who played to the crowd with fist pumps after numerous big points. Rishi is a really good player, Forest coach David Falcone said. Hes really fast and quick to start and stop, so the clay surface is more suitable to him. Phillip also got tired, while Rishi stayed fresher. He was hitting good shots throughout the match and deserved the win. In addition to Gurnani, No. 2 singles player Sam Alford and both LHS doubles teams (Gurnani/Alford and Lloyd Justo/Dale Eastmond), as well as the Hurricanes No. 1 doubles team (Kyle Everett/Grey Pospiech) will be in action today. Play will begin at 9 a.m. with the singles finals. Doubles semifinals and finals will follow. running for cover while the Red Sox scored three times against a mustachioed Joba Chamberlain. Jacoby Ellsbury had a sharp two-run infield single that first baseman Lyle Overbay, picked up off waivers only a week ago, couldnt handle for his third hit. Victorino singled home Bradley to add to the romp. We want to put pressure on the opposition, Farrell said. And thats not strictly with attempted steals and how we look to run the bases first to third, but the attitude and how we go about our work. No matter the colorful history between the clubs, the reality in 2013 is this: The two teams that have dominated the division for more than a decade enter opening day with considerably less swagger. Heck, the Yankees played as if they were still trying to get to know each other and they were, with several March acquisitions. The Bleacher Creatures roll call was loaded with new names because of injuries and the departures of free agents Nick Swisher and Russell Martin. We brought some guys in later into camp, manager Joe Girardi said. Theyre going to get a lot of opportunities here, and were going to need them to perform. 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Voting was on a 5-3-1 basis and was completed before the NCAA tournament. Oladipo got 58 first-team votes and 306 points. McDermott had 44 firstteam votes and 279 points, one more than Olynyks total points. The Gonzaga junior got 47 first-team votes. Burke, a 6-0 sophomore point guard, had an impressive individual season while running a team that at times had four freshmen on the court with him. Burke averaged 19.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 6.7 assists and shot 40.1 percent on 3-point attempts. He is Michigans fifth All-America and first since Chris Webber in 1993. Every now and then you think about individual accolades, and that was definitely a goal of mine coming into my freshman year, Burke said. I didnt know it would be this quick, but it happens. Porter, a 6-8 sophomore, is a smooth, solid forward whose coach describes his efforts this way: Otto was Otto. What does show up on Porters stat line is 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while shooting 42.7 percent from behind the 3-point line. He is Georgetowns sixth All-America and first since Allen Iverson in 1996. Oladipo is Indianas first All-America since A.J. Guyton in 2000 and the eighth overall. He was impressed to be joining the likes of Scott May, Kent Benson, Isiah Thomas, Steve Alford and Calbert Cheaney. Im kind of speechless to be with the great names in college basketball, the NBA, in basketball history, Oladipo, a 6-5 junior swingman, said. To be put in a sentence with them only makes me want to work harder. That is one of the traits Hoosiers coach Tom Crean loves about Oladipo, who averaged 13.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.2 steals while shooting 59.9 percent from the field and 44.3 percent on 3s. Olynyk, a native of Canada, became an All-America with a junior season that saw the Bulldogs reach No. 1 for the first time in school history. The 7footer averaged 17.5 points and 7.2 rebounds while shooting 65.2 percent from the field. Olynyk joins Dan Dickau and Adam Morrison as Gonzaga All-Americas. Freshman guard Marcus Smart of Oklahoma State got 11 first-team votes and 190 points and was joined on the second team by senior Mason Plumlee of Duke, sophomores Cody Zeller of Indiana and Shane Larkin of Miami and freshman Ben McLemore of Kansas. The third team was seniors Jeff Withey of Kansas, Erick Green of Virginia Tech and Nate Wolters of South Dakota State and juniors DeShaun Thomas of Ohio State and Russ Smith of Louisville.

S PORTS C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE B4 T UESDAY, A PRIL 2, 2013 Rockets blast past Magic Associated PressHOUSTON Omer Asik matched his career high with 22 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, and the Houston Rockets beat the Orlando Magic 111-103 on Monday night without James Harden and Chandler Parsons. Jeremy Lin had 19 points and 11 assists, and Francisco Garcia had 14 points, five assists and three blocks for the Rockets, who hardly missed their top two scorers until Orlando made a late run. Harden sat out for the second straight game with a sore right foot and Parsons missed the game with an illness. Rookie Maurice Harkless scored a career-high 28 points and Beno Udrih had 17 points and 10 assists for the Magic. The Rockets won for the eighth time in 10 home games and inched closer to their first playoff berth since the 2008-09 season. Houston holds the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference.Hawks 102, Cavaliers 94 ATLANTA Devin Harris scored a seasonhigh 25 points and Josh Smith nearly added a triple-double as the Atlanta Hawks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 102-94 to improve their chances of securing home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Smith had 18 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists before a sparse crowd in Philips Arena to help the Hawks (42-33) pull within one game of Brooklyn (42-31) for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Reserve Marreese Speights scored 14 of his 22 in the final quarter, but the Cavs (22-51) did not seriously threaten after pulling within 58-56 early in the third period. Twolves 110, Celtics 100 MINNEAPOLIS Nikola Pekovic bruised and battered the overmatched Boston front line for 29 points to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 110-100 victory over the Celtics. Andrei Kirilenko had 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists, and Dante Cunningham scored 19 points off the bench for the Wolves, who delivered coach Rick Adelman his 998th career victory. Avery Bradley scored 19 points for Boston, which was playing without Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. This one snapped an 11-game winning streak against the Wolves, who beat Boston for the first time since Garnett was traded there in 2007. Grizzlies 92, Spurs 90 MEMPHIS, Tenn. Mike Conley drove for a layup with 0.6 seconds left, and the Memphis Grizzlies rallied to beat the San Antonio Spurs 92-90 for their third straight victory. The Grizzlies matched their franchise record with their 50th win this season, and they won their 12th straight at home. They pulled out a win in a game where Conleys bucket gave them their first lead since 18-16 late in the first quarter. Conley scored the final five points and finished with 23. Jerryd Bayless had 17 points, Marc Gasol 16, Zach Randolph 11 points and 10 rebounds, and Tayshaun Prince had 11 points. Tony Parker had 25 points for the Spurs. Parker tried to beat the buzzer with a jumper that was too late. Pistons 108, Raptors 98 TORONTO Greg Monroe scored 24 points, Jose Calderon had 19 points and nine assists against his former team, and the Detroit Pistons snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Toronto Raptors 108-98. Rodney Stuckey scored 18 points, Jonas Jerebko had 10 of his 15 in the fourth quarter and rookie Khris Middleton added 11 as the Pistons won for just the third time in 19 games. Rudy Gay scored 34 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 17 and DeMar DeRozan 15 as the Raptors lost for the seventh time in eight games. Toronto was outscored 33-19 in the final quarter.Bucks 131, Bobcats 102 MILWAUKEE Larry Sanders had a career-high 24 points and 13 rebounds as Milwaukee cruised to a 131-102 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats for the Bucks highest scoring total in more than four years. Monta Ellis had 19 points, a career-high 14 assists and six steals to help Milwaukee pull 1 1/2 games behind seventh-place Boston in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Ersan Ilyasova added 22 points for the Bucks, J.J. Redick scored 20, and Brandon Jennings 19. Milwaukee, which had lost five of six, remained solidly in the eighth position in the East, with a six-game lead over idle Philadelphia. Kemba Walker scored 27 points to lead the Bobcats, and Gerald Henderson had 17. Louisville the sure thing in a hoops season of parity Cards lone top seed to reach Final Four Associated PressThe word of the season: Parity. The team of the moment: Louisville. For a college basketball season in which it seemed anybody could beat anybody, and the No. 1 ranking was never secure, Rick Pitinos Cardinals (33-5) have certainly cemented themselves as a prohibitive front-runner now that there are only four teams left. They head to Atlanta listed as 3-5 favorites in Las Vegas, after dispatching everyone from Duke to North Carolina A&T with equal ease on their way to the Final Four. Trying to stop them will be Michigan, Syracuse and Wichita State a pair of No. 4 seeds and a No. 9, all serving as great examples of how difficult it was to sort out the contenders from the pretenders heading into the 2013 version of March Madness. Cinderella found one glass skipper, said Gregg Marshall, coach of Wichita State, which beat No. 1seeded Gonzaga and No. 2 Ohio State on its way to adding some mid-major mojo to the Final Four. We won four games. I dont think she found four glass slippers. When you get to this point, youre good enough to win it all. Pitino said he does, in fact, believe in parity during this, a season in which the team at the top of The Associated Press poll changed five times in five straight weeks at one point. He called the Midwest Region, where the Cardinals were seeded first and won their games by an average of nearly 22 points, the death bracket. Ive experienced quite a few NCAAs, said Pitino, who is coaching his seventh Final Four team. Ive never played the likes of a Colorado State in the second round. Theyre a team that was very much capable of getting to a Final Four. Then Oregon was just absolutely terrific. Then certainly Coach K and Duke ... To play Duke in an Elite Eight, never mind a Final Four, it was a death bracket. The Michigan-Syracuse semifinal features two power-conference teams that finished in the upper half of their leagues, but stayed under the radar through conference tournament time. The Orangemen (30-9) headed into the postseason losing four of five and coach Jim Boeheim was talking more about playing golf than coaching in April. Sparked by Boeheims vaunted 2-3 zone defense, theyve won seven of eight and are back in the Final Four for the first time since Carmelo Anthony brought the championship home in 2003. Its difficult when you lose four out of five games, Boeheim said. But people go through that. I think most teams have a bad stretch sometime during the course of the year, particularly if you play four games against three teams in the top 15 in the country. Michigans lull came in early February, when it lost three of four shortly after reaching No. 1 in the AP poll for the first time since 1992 the days of the Fab Five. Its current four-game winning streak is the first of more than two games since early in the Big Ten season. So, while the No. 4 seed may make sense for the Wolverines (30-7), it may not account for the difference maker they have in AllAmerican Trey Burke. Burke has averaged 18.6 points in the last three games of the tournament. Coach John Beileins job will be to find ways to get shots for Burke against Boeheims zone. Hes had an ability, particularly with our teams, to really make sure some of our best shooters dont get open shots, dont get their traditional shots, Beilein said. So thats our job, to try to figure that out, to make sure we can get clean looks. While the Michigan-Syracuse game is considered a near toss-up Michigans a 2-point favorite Louisville is favored by 10 1/2 over Wichita State in the first semifinal. Its the second-largest spread for a Final Four since 1985, the year the field expanded to 64 teams. Associated Press Louisville guard Russ Smith goes up for a layup Sunday past Dukes Mason Plumlee during the first half of the Midwest Regional final in Indianapolis. Associated Press Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin drives to the basket Monday between Orlando Magic forward Tobias Harris, left, and center Nikola Vucevic during the second half in Houston. The Rockets won 111-103. Islanders skate past Devils 3-1 Associated PressNEWARK, N.J. Frans Nielsen set up two early goals and Evgeni Nabokov made 24 saves and the New York Islanders continued their playoff push with a 3-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. Josh Bailey and Travis Hamonic were the beneficiaries of Nielsens passes and John Tavares added his 22nd goal of the season as the Islanders won for the fourth time in five games. New Yorks only loss was a 2-0 setback to the Pittsburgh Penguins, the winners of 15 straight games. Alexei Ponikarovsky scored for the Devils, who are 0-1-3 since forward Ilya Kovalchuk was sidelined with a shoulder injury more than a week ago. Martin Brodeur finished with 18 saves. Rangers 4, Jets 2 NEW YORK Derek Stepan scored twice, including the go-ahead goal in the third period, to lead the New York Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Ryan Callahan had a goal and three assists as the Rangers snapped a twogame losing streak, picking up two vital points in their fight to hold onto a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. New York started the night clinging to eighth place. Rick Nash also scored for New York and Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves. The Southeast Divisionleading Jets got goals from Nik Antropov and Zach Bogosian in their third straight loss. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 31 shots for Winnipeg. Red Wings 3, Avalanche 2DETROIT Damien Brunner ended his 15-game scoring drought and Jimmy Howard made a late save to help the Detroit Red Wings hold off the Colorado Avalanche 3-2. Justin Abdelkader scored late in the first period, Danny Cleary put Detroit ahead by two at 6:28 of the second and Brunner had a one-timer a few minutes later. The Red Wings, coming off a 7-1 loss to Chicago, allowed a 3-0 lead to turn into a one-goal game. Colorado avoided a shutout with a power-play goal at 14:08 of the third period when Jamie McGinns backhander from between the circles sailed over a sprawling Howard. Avalanche forward Cody McLeod checked Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith into Howard, who couldnt get off the ice in time to get in a position to stop McGinns shot.Canadiens 4, Hurricanes 1MONTREAL Carey Price made 18 saves in his 300th NHL game to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Max Pacioretty scored twice and Andrei Markov and Jeff Halpern also scored for Montreal, which swept the season series against Carolina and remains undefeated in 10 games against the Southeast Division this season. Jordan Staal scored and Justin Peters stopped 25 shots for Carolina, which has just one win in its past nine games. The win gives Montreal a three-point lead over the idle Boston Bruins in the race for the Northeast Division title. Blues 4, Wild 1ST. PAUL, Minn. Jaden Schwartz and Andy McDonald each had a goal and an assist, Brian Elliott stepped in and made 19 saves, and the St. Louis Blues snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Minnesota Wild 4-1. Kevin Shattenkirk and Barret Jackman also scored for St. Louis. Dany Heatley scored for the Wild, whose home winning streak ended at four games. Minnesota lost for just the sixth time in its last 21 games overall. St. Louis began the day out of the playoffs and staring at a stretch with six of its next seven games coming on the road.

The Huskies will face either Notre Dame or Duke in the national semifinals on Sunday in New Orleans. The Irish and Blue Devils play tonight. UConn broke a tie with Stanford (200812), LSU (2004-08), and itself (2000-04) by reaching the Final Four again. It was the second straight season that UConn (33-4) beat Kentucky in the regional finals.

The timetable released by the Spurs on Monday comes a day after Ginobili did not play in an 88-86 loss to the Miami Heat. The 35-year-old Ginobili injured his right hamstring in a victory over the Los Angeles Clippers last week. The regular season ends April 17. San Antonio is 1 1/2 games ahead of Oklahoma City for the top seed in the Western Conference and may now have to protect that lead without their third-leading scorer. Ginobili is averaging 11.9 points and 4.6 assists.

Selling health care Marketing studies help craft health overhaul pitch R ICARDO A LONSOZ ALDIVAR Associated PressWASHINGTONH ow do you convince millions of average Americans that one of the most complex and controversial programs devised by government may actually be a good deal for them? With the nation still split over President Barack Obamas health care law, the administration has turned to the science of mass marketing for help in understanding the lives of uninsured people, hoping to craft winning pitches for a surprisingly varied group in society. The laws supporters will have to make the sale in the run-up to an election the 2014 midterms. Already Republicans are hoping for an Obamacare flop that helps them gain control of the Senate, while Democrats are eager for the public to finally embrace the Affordable Care Act, bringing political deliverance. It turns out Americas more than 48 million uninsured people are no monolithic mass. A marketing analysis posted online by the federal Health and Human Services Department reveals six distinct groups, three of which appear critical to the success or failure of the program. Theyre the Healthy & Young, comprising 48 percent of the uninsured, the Sick, Active & Worried, (29 percent of the uninsured), and the Passive & Unengaged (15 percent). The Healthy & Young take good health for granted, are tech-savvy, and have low motivation to enroll. The Sick, Active & Worried are mostly Generation X and baby boomers, active seekers of health care information and worried about costs. The Passive & Unengaged group is mostly 49 and older, lives for today, and doesnt understand much about health insurance. The challenge for the administration is obvious: signing up lots of the Healthy & Young, as well as the Passive & Unengaged, to offset the higher costs of covering the sick and worried. Uninsured middleclass Americans will be able to sign up for subsidized private health plans through new insurance markets in their states starting Oct.1. Low-income uninsured people will be steered to safety net programs like Medicaid. The goal here is to get as many people enrolled as possible, Gary Cohen, the HHS official overseeing the rollout of the law, told insurers at a recent industry conference. Partly for that reason the first open enrollment period will continue until March 31, 2014. Coverage under the law takes effect Jan. 1. Thats also when the legal requirement that most Americans carry health insurance goes into force. Insurance companies will be barred from turning the sick away or charging them more. The new law is mainly geared to the uninsured and to people who buy coverage directly from insurance companies. Most Americans in employer plans are not expected to see major changes. Administration officials say they see an opportunity to change the national debate about health care. They want to get away from shouting matches about the role of government and start millions of practical conversations about new benefits that can help families and individuals. The HHS marketing materials reveal some barriers to getting the uninsured to embrace the law. F or several years, a great deal of debate has surrounded the usefulness of cancer screening, including breast, prostate and lung cancer. Statisticians try to look at the benefits of early detection and a higher chance of cure, and weigh it against the cost. Whether this is the approach we may soon have to take or not, the benefits of screening have been proven over and over again. Now, however, there is a question of how often screening tests should be B ruising is a common condition that has affected us all at some point in our lives. Trauma such as household injuries and surgical procedures are the most common causes in younger patients. Sometimes medications, vitamins and supplements, which I will expand on later, are another cause. The next group of causes includes blood disorders, thyroid and metabolic problems, autoimmune disorders (a situation where the immune system malfunctions), cancers and lastly malnutrition, which is very rare in the United States. It can be seen in low economic groups and elderly and institutionalized patients. The term medical professionals use for bruising that occurs in the older patient population is called senile purpura. There are a number of causes, including skin thickness, which declines with age in both male and female patients. The skin becomes very fragile because it loses collagen, which gives it strength; elastin, which gives it ability to stretch; and fat underneath the skin, or subcutaneous fat, which provides protection much like the Styrofoam peanuts that come in a package to protect the contents. Photo damage from the sun combined with aging changes G ood morning! There have been a few comic laugh out loud moments lambasting Punxsutawney Phil, the Pennsylvania ground hog, and his prediction of an early spring. Face it, meteorologists dont always get it right either, but it will warm up, I promise! This is Florida, and soon we will be complaining its too hot. With warmer weather on the horizon, its time to talk about water safety. My first topics are children and life jackets. Young children, and anyone who cannot swim or tread water, should wear life jackets, when they are on a boat and any time they are around any body of water; period. Wearing a life jacket is important, but wearing one that is properly fitted is the key for safety. Team members of Nature Coast EMS have seen far too often fatal accidents involving children. Keep them constantly in your sight, period. Take the positive approach and be prepared. Talk to your children about not playing around O ne of the common questions patients ask me is, What kind of food should I eat or not eat? Or what kind of food helps my condition? I will address two specific studies answering part of the question in todays and next weeks article.

The Healthy & Young lead busy lives and tend to be procrastinators. Plus, why would they need health insurance if theyre full of vigor? The Passive & Unengaged fear the unknown and have difficulty navigating the health care system. The Sick, Active & Worried dread making wrong decisions. Marketing for the new system will start this summer, going into high gear during the fall after premiums and other plan information becomes public. Theres already widespread concern that the new coverage costs too much, because of a combination of sicker people joining the pool and federal requirements that insurers offer more robust benefits. A recent study by the Society of Actuaries forecast sticker shock, estimating that insurers will have to pay an average of 32 percent more for medical claims on individual health policies. The administration says such studies are misleading because they dont take into account parts of the law that offset costs to individuals and insurance companies, along with other provisions that promote competition and increase oversight of insurance rates. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., who has long supported coverage for the uninsured, is predicting vindication for Obama once people see how the program really works. Its harder to sell what is a pretty new idea for Americans while it is still in the abstract, said Schakowsky, who represents Chicago. I think as people experience it, theyre going to love it, much like Medicare. That will put wind in the sails of Democratic candidates. I think its going to be a very popular feature as far as the American way of life before too long, Schakowsky added. But Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky says Democrats have been predicting for years that Americans would learn to love the health care overhaul and that has not happened. McConnell had his picture taken next to a 7foot stack of Obamacare regulations recently to underscore his disdain. can accelerate this process. There are times patients develop spontaneous bruising, or the trauma they sustained is so minor it makes one think there is something abnormal going on when, in reality, this is a relatively normal phenomenon with age. Besides normal aging changes and sun damage, the third most common things I encounter in my practice are substances patients are taking that can cause bruising. We all know there are blood thinners prescribed by doctors for various medical conditions, but there are also over-thecounter preparations and herbal supplements and vitamins that can create problems as well. Medications: 1. Aspirin. 2. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories. 3. Vitamin E. Herbs and natural supplements: 1. Clover. 2. Da Huang. 3. Danshen. 4. Dong Quai. 5. Evening primrose oil. 6. Fever few. 7. Garlic. 8. Ginger. 9. Ginkgo Biloba. 10. Ginseng. 11. Horse chestnut. 12. Licorice. 13. Poplar. 14. St. Johns Wort. The above list cites a few examples. See online sources or your doctor for a more extensive list of medications that can cause problems. As we age, we are going to have an increase in bruising. Fortunately, it doesnt propose a great deal of problems and doesnt necessarily suggest we have any health issues that require intervention. Home and folk remedies for swelling and bruising are well known and there is a long list of items that may help. Following is a short list of items that have been proven through research to enhance wound healing and decrease bruising and inflammation. 1. Arnica Montana used nowadays widely by plastic surgeons to avoid postoperative swelling and bruising. 2. Vitamin C, which has been known to help collagen production and help stem the increased thinning of the skin. 3. Zinc. Its role in reducing bruising is by decreasing inflammation as sociated with injury that occurs to the skin. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

GRILLO Continued from Page C1 SELLING Continued from Page C1 W e have been celebrating Africa Universitys 20th anniversary of its founding for the past week. Forty students were admitted that first year. The years since have been ones of remarkable growth, with the establishment of six different faculties plus the Institute of Peace, Leadership and Governance. Two men who were instrumental in the birth and development of AU were honored recently with honorary degrees. For students from millions of African families who subsist on less than $1 a day, education has been viewed as the ticket to success, and that is still true today. Three years ago, a poor farmer from a nearby village sought help for his son who wanted to become a teacher. The son subsequently received a scholarship and he is doing well at Africa University. He is positioned to graduate with honors next year. Although a few students come to AU with no financial problems, hundreds of AU students and their families struggle financially for this chance to get higher education. The struggle begins long before they reach the university level. Walter is a student at Hartzell High School across the valley. I met him last year when I was walking across campus. He was walking toward his village a few kilometers down the road, but our paths converged for a little ways. and I asked him a few questions. He was clearly a bright student. After that first happenstance meeting, we greeted each other when our paths occasionally crossed. Three weeks ago, he popped into my office on his way home. He needed a workbook for his geometry homework, but his mother didnt have the $5 it cost. I questioned him closely, because I get many requests for help. His need was authentic. He has three younger siblings, and an absentee father. With a meager corn crop, its difficult for his mother to even feed and clothe the family. I gave him the $5 he needed for the workbook. A few days ago, he came by my office again to show me his work. His geometry drawings in his new workbook were precise and neat, but he now needed a pencil kit with an angle ruler and an eraser for an upcoming examination. He had been borrowing kits from other kids to do his assignments, but couldnt do that for his exam. When I asked about his family, he said that his mother had gone to Mozambique 10 days earlier because her sister was in the hospital critically ill with malaria. The mother left Walter in charge. He was cooking for the family as well as seeing to it everyone got to school on time. (Classes start at 7 a.m., and it takes them about an hour to walk to school, so an early start is required.) He also needed to carry their remaining bag of dried corn to the village grinding mill a kilometer down the road. Then he would have the cornmeal he needed to cook their meals the next day. He was clearly proud of taking care of his family, but I got the full picture only after questioning him closely about his situation. I gave him the $5 he needed. Walter has dreams. His eyes light up when I ask about his hopes for the future. He wants a good higher education, and he eventually wants to work in the area of applied physics. I believe Walter has what it takes to achieve his goals. Ed Dodge, M.D., MPH, is a retired physician now living in Texas. Visit his website, www.thepoweroflifestyle.com.

A: This a very timely question, as April has been designated Parkinsons disease (PD) awareness month. James Parkinson, who was born in the month of April, was the English physician who first clinically defined this condition in 1817 and called it the Shaking Palsy. Since then, neurologists have classified PD as a movement disorder, characterized by four key movement (motor) symptoms that include the shaking (tremor) described by Dr. Parkinson in addition to muscle rigidity and stiffness, slowness of movement (bradykinesia) and impaired balance and coordination (postural instability). In the 1960s, it was discovered that these motor symptoms were caused by the death and malfunction of nerve cells in a section of the brain that produces a chemical called dopamine.This chemical sends messages that control movement and coordination. However, more recently it has been determined that many other parts of the brain and nervous system are affected by this chronic and progressively disabling disorder. Today, PD is considered much more than just a movement disorder. Non-motor symptoms of this disease may include pain, dementia or confusion, fatigue, sleep disturbances, depression, constipation, cognitive changes, fear and anxiety, and urinary problems. Like many other neurological disorders, the cause(s) of PD are not known, but both environment and genetic factors are thought to be involved. There currently is no cure for PD, but numerous medications and other treatment options, including surgery, are available to improve symptoms and the quality of life for people with this disease. While the average age of onset for PD is 60 years, many individuals are diagnosed in their 50s and 40s, or even younger. It is estimated nearly 1.5 million Americans are living with PD and some 60,000 Americans are newly diagnosed each year. There are several national organizations that can provide you with more information, one of which is the Parkinsons Disease Foundation.

study, who came from the Life After Cancer Epidemiology study, were diagnosed with early stage invasive breast cancer from 1997 to 2000. They completed the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Food Frequency Questionnaire after diagnosis. During a median follow-up of 11.8 years, 349 women had a recurrence and 372 died 189 from breast cancer. The authors evaluated the association between subsequent outcomes and categories of cumulative average dairy fat intake at baseline and at 5to 6-year follow-up. High-fat dairy intake was positively associated with outcome. Breast cancer and all cause mortality was higher in women who consumed half to 1 serving of high-fat dairy per day than in those who consumed less than half a serving. Dietary fat in dairy is a source of estrogenic hormones and estrogen feeds breast cancer. The biggest caveat to the study is that it relied on questionnaires. People generally tend to under-report how much they really eat, so its possible the study underestimated the effect of eating a lot of high-fat dairy. In absolute terms, breast cancer survivors who consumed the most high-fat dairy had about a 12 percent risk of dying of the disease. This is a modest increase in cancer deaths. The solution is simple, though: stay away from butter and ice cream as far as possible. This does not mean you cannot eat them at all, but avoid them. Women with breast cancer who are concerned about high-fat dairy have dietary alternatives. Consuming plantbased milks or nonfat dairy products may be a reasonable approach for limiting risk of adverse outcomes. In other words, breast cancer patients and survivors should consume rice, soy or nonfat milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, butter and other products. Also, remember, this applies to women who already had breast cancer. It does not apply to women who never had breast cancer. There is no evidence high-fat dairy causes breast cancer in a woman who never had breast cancer before. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

New data suggest that women 50 to 74 years old can safely undergo mammography every two years instead of annually, while women 40 to 49 years old should only undergo annual mammography if they have extremely dense breasts. This study was recently reported online in JAMA Internal Medicine. Researchers from the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center in California analyzed data on the benefits and harms of various mammography frequencies from 11,474 women with breast cancer, and 922,624 women without breast cancer. Yes, a very large study of almost one million women. The researchers found there was no increase in the risk of large or advanced stage tumors for women 50 to 74 years old with biennial versus annual screening, regardless of breast density or use of postmenopausal hormonal therapy. However, for women 40 to 49 years old with extremely dense breasts, there was a higher risk of advanced stage cancer and large tumors with biennial versus annual screening. This strongly supports the continued practice of annual mammograms in younger women and, in my opinion, continue the annual screening in all women at least until the age of 75. According to the researchers, women age 50 to 74 years, regardless of breast density or hormone therapy use can undergo biennial rather than annual mammography because biennial screening does not increase the risk of presenting with advanced disease. On the other hand, women age 40 to 49 years with extremely dense breasts who choose to undergo mammography should consider annual screening to decrease the risk of advancedstage disease. While this is good news, I will continue to advocate the use of annual screening for all women between the ages of 40 and 75. The risks associated with yearly screening are very low, and the benefit of finding a cancer early cannot be measured in terms of dollars and cents. Dr. C.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE C4 T UESDAY, A PRIL 2, 2013 Fake-looking dentures a perennial concern I have had a number of questions regarding dentures and what can be done with them in order to enhance ones appearance. Instead of rewriting what I have done in the past, I chose to republish an old column. Here it is and I hope it helps clear up some of the questions out there. Some of what you will read is new technology, but the majority of it simply has to do with paying attention to the details, listening to your patient and taking your time, because each step counts. You might remember me saying that most of what we do in dentistry has many steps. If you are not on task for each step things will simply not turn out for the best. Q: My sister, who is only 55, recently had her teeth out and dentures made due to lots of bone loss. Aside from the fact that she can hardly wear them they look very fake just like dentures! I seem to remember you writing about ways that a denture can be made to look like real teeth. Can you review this in your next column? My sister is very frustrated and embarrassed to write in. A: This is a great question, one I see many patients for. You would be surprised how many people are self-conscious about their dentures and never do anything about it. Once they make the decision to do something they always wish they had done it sooner. Your sister will thank you for this. I originally wanted to write the one thing that makes a denture look like a denture is ..., but I couldnt, because there are a lot of things that need to be done to make a denture not look like a denture. Lets talk about some of them. A. Lip support: The placement of the upper lip is very important. The lip is supported by the denture flange and the teeth. The dentist has the ability to place this where he or she wants. The lip should be placed so that, when lipstick is placed on the lips, it is on the lips and not on the tissue above the lips. B. Tooth length: The length of the teeth is crucial. If the teeth are too short, you will not see any teeth while your lips are at rest. If the teeth are too long, you will see too much tooth while at rest and a lot of gums when you smile. The ideal scenario is to see a small amount of tooth while your lips are at rest. C. Tooth shape: The shape of the tooth can be very important. A square tooth is normally masculine and a curved tooth is typically feminine. The shape of the teeth should be selected on an individual basis. If the teeth are not selected specifically for the patient, you will get that typical denture look. D. Tooth color: The lighter the color of the teeth, the more youthful your smile will be. The dentist should take into consideration the patients complexion and whether or not lipstick is worn. Additionally, you need to know what shade of lipstick is typically worn. The darker the color of the lipstick, the lighter the teeth will look and vice-versa. E. Tooth position: The most obvious thing noticed by the lay person is the midline. If the midline of the teeth does not correspond with the midline of the face, the smile will not look right. The lay person may not recognize that the midline is off, but they will know something is not right. There are a lot of other things the dentist can do with tooth position to accomplish a natural-looking smile. F. Gum color: The color of the gums is another very important feature. The gums need to look like real gums. There are so many times the color of the gums gives the denture away. There are ways to custom-characterize the gums so you cannot tell they are fake. If you have not seen a denture like this, you have to see it to believe it. Even I am amazed at what a difference this makes. I am sure this will give your sister an idea of what can be done in the process of making a set of teeth that can make dentures look like real teeth. I hope this has helped and it wasnt boring to those of you who have already read it before. Dentures are a reality for many of you and if I can help just one through the use of this column, it is all worth it. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A PRIL 2, 2013 C7 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. William Lyon Phelps was a popular columnist and public speaker who taught the first American university course on the modern novel. He said, If at first you dont succeed, find out if the loser gets anything. At the bridge table, a loser usually gives a trick to the opponents. Sometimes, though, taking that trick can be costly. In todays deal, what should be the result in four spades after West leads the club king? Note Easts balancing one-no-trump overcall. This shows only 11 to 15 points. With a normal strong no-trump, East doubles and rebids in notrump. Souths three-heart rebid and Norths jump to four spades were aggressive but reasonable. North liked his three-card spade support, a ruffing value in Souths second suit and an ace. South wins the first trick with dummys ace, plays a heart to his queen, cashes the heart ace, and leads another heart. Should West ruff with his spade 10 or pitch a minor-suit card? In general, if declarer is about to ruff a loser, the defender should discard. Here, if West ruffs, the contract can be made. South trumps the (say) club continuation, ruffs a heart on the board (bringing down Easts king), and plays a spade to his nine. He continues with a high trump and loses only two spades and one diamond. If West correctly discards at trick four, the play gets interesting. South ruffs, trumps a club in his hand and leads another heart. Now West must ruff! He then leads a minor, and South cannot avoid losing another two spades and one diamond to East.

Only my father and I deployed to combat areas. Dad retired five years ago and is showing drastic symptoms of PTSD. He is stockpiling food and medical supplies and keeps trying to get my wife and me to prepare for when it all hits the fan. He spends hours a day obsessively watching the news and getting angry at the television. Our children used to spend time unsupervised with my parents, but that stopped when I found a loaded handgun in his bathroom cabinet. My mother has broached the topic of therapy, and Ive offered to go with him, as Ive been wrestling with some mild PTSD issues myself. But my brothers intercede every time and say Dads fine and its no big deal, and they convince him not to go. I believe this is dangerous. Ive been unable to find any home counseling services, and even our pastor says this is out of his realm of expertise. What other options are out there? New York Son Dear Son: You may have better luck getting your father to accept help if you approach this as a possible medical problem, rather than a psychiatric issue. We also suggest you ask him to join you for an exercise or yoga class, which can be useful for some PTSD sufferers. Also, please contact the VAs National Center for PTSD (ptsd.va.gov) or Military One Source (militaryonesource.mil) at 1-800-342-9647, and ask to speak to a counselor or get a referral to local military treatment facilities. Dear Annie: My maternal grandparents passed within months of each other. My mother hated her parents and kept them away from us. I never knew them well. Im in my late 20s and have never been an emotional person. I went to my grandparents funerals out of respect, but my sister went overboard, sobbing and moaning during the service even though she knew them less than I did. For weeks after, she emailed and texted me saying she couldnt sleep and that shed never fill the hole the loss represented. My sister and my parents say Im heartless because I didnt respond this way. My mother actually upbraided me for not weeping sufficiently. People grieve in different ways. How do I nicely ask them to please stop crying on me because its making me uncomfortable? Not Grieving That Much Dear Grieving: Unless someone is crying on you day after day, please try to tolerate what you can, and then gently extricate yourself. Pat them on the shoulder. Get them a seat. Ask if they need a tissue. Then walk away. You dont have to demonstrate such obvious mourning yourself. You are right that everyone grieves differently, and you are not obligated to put on a show. But it would be useful to learn how to convey sympathy to others, whether or not you believe they deserve it. Dear Annie: I was surprised to learn that people register for housewarming gifts. I thought housewarming gifts were something simple like a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine or flowers. A neighbor brought me a cutting from a cactus that has bloomed on time for more than 40 years. Maybe Im old-fashioned, but I thought you furnished your house yourself as you were able over the years. Canaan, Conn. Dear Canaan : Most guests bring gifts to a housewarming. A registry is a bit much, but there is nothing wrong with having a friend or relative make suggestions when asked. Dear Readers : We are carrying on Ann Landers tradition that April 2 be set aside as Reconciliation Day, a time to make the first move toward mending broken relationships. It also would be the day on which we agree to accept the olive branch extended by a former friend or estranged family member and do our best to start over.
